Had Effects of Forest Clearing.
No country in the world perhaps pre
sents more striking proofs of the evil of
excessive forest-clearing than the kha
nato of Bokhara. Thirty years ago the
khanata was well wooded nd watered
d regarded by Central Asians as a sort
of terrestrial paradise. About twenty-
five years ago the mania of forest clear
ing was begun, and continued until the
heavy timber had entirely disappeared.
What the improvidence and ignorance
of the rulers spared, was utterly
Burned by the fury of civil war.
menso tracts of land once well peopled
and cultivated, deprived of fertilizing
moisture, are now barren, treeless
wastes. The water-courses being dried
up, tho system of canals, which sprei
like a net-work over the khanate, has
been rendered useless. Tho raoyini
sands of the desert, no longer restrained
by the forest-barriers, are slowly ad
vancing, filling up canals and dried wa
ter courses, and will continue their
noiseless and ceaseless invasion until
the whole khanate will be converted into
a dreary waste as barren as the wilder
ness separating it frem Khiva. It is im
probable that the khan possesses either
the energy or the means necessary for
averting the desolation with which his
territories are threatened.

Would sho, if at that momont a stop
had not crossed tho hall, aud a voico—

But tho stop emuo, the voico came.
Thoro was tho master of tho house, aud
Mr. Waldo—not French iu his manner
now, very business like and American,

“ Yon may stay here with baby, Mag-

Mr. Winnor is engaged.”
She peeped into the glass again, and
set tied her crimped hair with hor pink
pnlrns. Her dress needed no arranging
—sho was always well dressed in the
evening—and ihon she went down into
the parlor, whore Channooy Waldo,
who considered himself tho most fas
ciimting man in the United States, sat
waiting for her.
There was no harm in going down,
It was only right to go ; but Satan,
they say, is always on the lookout for
one’s weak moments; and it seems
likely that ho sent Mr. Waldo in tho
nick of time. Rose’s vanity had been
stung, and she was anxious to prove to
herself that Rhe had not lost her power
of fascination. She proved it conclu
sively that evening.
Nothing was said, nothing was dono
that Mrs. Grundy could object to; but
there are smiles that mako tho heart of
a lady-killer flutter, and smiles that put
him at a distance by their very grocious-
ness. Formerly Mrs. Winner had given
Mr. Waldo these latter smiles. To
night she gave him the former. So that
he dared to hold her band a little lon
ger than he bail ever dono before in
parting, and to say softly :
“ May I call again very soon ? I bate
to think of your being lonely.”
For she had told f him—yes, she had
indeed—that “ Mr. Winner was forever
shut up in his study, and that she fan
cied sho should die of ennui some
day.”- Which was true enough, but
unwise statement for a pretty young
wile to make to a Waldo,
they feel far moro onntompt than lovo
weak a creature, who forgets
honor bo fur that it no longer becomes
dishonorable for them to kiss and toll.
Tho coldest salutation that honest, bus
band over gavo his wife is really worth
more than the finest flattery nnother
an oan whisper to her.
And Wiuner did not guoss at what
is going on. She wanted him to
know, that she might rack his heart,
with jealous pangs ; but she dared not
lot, him know.
Magpie, tho maid, had qnito a myste
rious air now when she brought Waldo’
card, and onoo she had whisperod :
“ But-1 hoard tho miuitar sUr, ma’am,

Tho admirablo part of the play lmd

racy of tho catching would havo ro-

many a slow bowler onvious of tlio

the wonder of prooision of throwing.
A momont to lo k, a rnomout to get tho
pronor equilibrium, and then tho ball is
hurled, “ Blmrp and low,” quite straight
to tho hft«oman’s hands. No fumbliug,
no half-volleys, no wido throws. Bo
accurate was it that tho oxolamatiou of
many a oriokotro prosont was: With snob
throwing who would uot bo a wiokot

Swiss Exportation for the United State
The latest Borne correspondence of
tlio McHsagcr Franoo-Amorioaiu contains
very important aud interesting statis
tics, which arc translated aud condensed
as follows. Those figures were officially
furnished to tlio Swiss federal bureau of
statistics by tho American consuls of
Zurich, Bastes, and Geneva.
During tho year 1073 Switzerland has
:portod to tho Unitod States :

The average exportation, from 1804
1872, was 50,553,870 fraucs; it readi
ed, in 1872, 59,481,103 francs. Swit
zerland has, therefore, suffered little
from the tlniinoial and commercial crisis
in the Unitod States. Tho doorcase

two articles—silk goods havo decreased
by 13,700,012 francs, and watches by
5,257,304 francs. This may bo duo to
the fact that watch work progresses very
favorably in tho Unitod States, and that

stand tho relationship that exists bo
tween tho two, for they do not bear the
same name, and, besides, thoro is
nameless something which tells that
is neither husband, lover, or brother.
These relationships arc common and
easily defined, but in those days of
generated honor it is rare to find a man
devoting himself to a woman past
youth, and who is nothiug more to him
than a friend, but is tho sister of
girl who years ago was to have been
wife, and would have been but that death
interposed and tlio bridal robo became her
winding-sheet. No other lovo ban since

formed her mission in lifo by support
ing and educating orphan nephews, so
that as she declines in yearn she has
those about her who think an ‘ old
maid’ tho dearest and best of women.”
