R&gie or Poland China Hogs.
We give Mr. Magie's account of the origin
| of the Magie or Poland China breed of hogs :
“ When quite a young man I commenced
operations in forming this breed of swine
while living with rav father, who was a far
mer and breeder of fine stock generally. The
raising of fine horses, however, was his chief
delight, and that branch of the stock busi
ness received more of his attention than any
other. He lived on his farm near Monroe, in
Butler county, Ohio, but being more interest
ed in hugs than any other stock, and not
having seen any that came up to my idea of
what they should be, I conceived the thought
of how I might possibly improve them, and
at once began operations ns follows : I de
termine! to purchase a few of the best swine
theu bred in our community, and I obtained
the best specimens that I could find of the
following four 6pecies, of which I will soon
give a description, namely : the Poland, Irish
Grazier, Big China and By field. Though
these were the best swine of which T then had
any knowledge, yet none of them exactly'
filled my r ideal.
I commenced the crossing in 1837, and
in 1840 had so far realized my' ideal as to get
an altogether new species of swine, which
was called for a long time by own name,
which name was also adopted by' the Illinois
Swine Breeders’ Convention. Some of these
swine I purchased of the following gentle
men : Of the Irish Graziers, I obtained some
of Air. A. Iveever, of Warren county, Ohio ;
the Byfields I purchased of Mr. Vandyke, of
Butler county, Ohio, and the Polands I got
of ray father, Benjamin Magie, of Butler
county-', Ohio, and Mr. Michael Brown, of
Warren county, Ohio; and the China bogs I
purchased of the Shakers, of Union Village,
Warren county, Ohio. The following is a
description of the four breeds used in the
formation of this swine :
The Poland was a spotted swine, with more
black than white. His hair was pretty heavy,
often curly, and of medium quality. He had
a tolerably fine bead ; a long round body ;
fine drooping ears, dished face ; good bowe ;
Gne tapering limbs ; pretty square hams and
shoulders, but was not so deep a swine as the
China. He had good early' fattening quali
ties, and was a fine grass hog ; had a good
hardy constitution, and was a quiet, docile
swine, and was the best of any of the four
crosses which 1 used, ami yet it was my' de
sire to improve on him.
The By field was a coarse, lop-cared, deep
sided hog, heavy limbed and a r,low fattener
while young ; fiat in the hams and shoulders,
short on the back ; grew very tall, and had
rather ill-shaped limbs; he was a spotted
swine, the color being what is commonly
termed a muddy sandy, not a clear and dis
tinct white or black ; he was not a very good
grass hog; he would grow in time to be the
largest hog of any of the four crosses.
The Irish Grazier was a white, thin-haired
swine, with a few dark colored spots on the
skin ; had rather small and erect cars ; had
a small head and dished face ; his neck was
not very heavy, and his body was rather long
and round, and his legs were not very short;
his bone was light, bis shoulders and hams
were good ; his temperament was rather nerv
ous ; his constitution not the strongest when
young, but ho fattened well when one yea?
old and over ; was a good grass hog, and one
of the best breeders we had.
The Big China was mostly a white swine,
with a blue skin and a few black and sandy
spots; Tie bad a good constitution, was :
large hog, and of the coarse order ; had a
coarse head and ears, good neck and jowl ;
was broad in the face and heavy in the muz
zle ; had short legs ; not very deep sides ; he
did not fatten very readily when young; in
comparison to the Irish Graziers, he was more
dociip, but not so good a grass hog.
Now these are the foundation of the present
popular and profitable swine in question.
From these I undertook to got a hog that
would fill my thought. I bred the Poland to
the Irish Grazier, and the Byfield to the Big
China, and consequently, as the result of the
crosses, I had two new and distinct species
ofswine. But I was not done; so then I
bred the best specimen of the offspring of the
two. and then I found what I had long beer,
looking for—a fine hog, and much better than
any which had vet come to rav knowledge.
A Genuine Giant.
ARRIVAL IN AMERICA OF CHANG. THE BIGGEST
MAN IN TIIE WORLD.
Chang has arrived. For years vague
rumors have been circulated to the effect that
Europe had a giant t hat the Tritons them
selves might envy. If an American. Austra
ban. or Canadian giant was produced, souk
scoffing foreigner was always ready with

arm over this fellow's head and not touch
When the City of Berlin reached her wharf
in New York the cabmen fell back in dismay
at the apparition which loomed up and picked
his way carefully down the gang-plank. This
was Chang. He walked up to a coach with
majestic tread and. resting his hand lightly
on the seat which was above an ordinary man’s
head, looked down upon the driver and,
smiling, said in perfect English :
FOR THE PEOPLE.
Can you drive my secretary and myself
!to the Spanish Hotel at No. 23 Great Jones
“Can—can you get in tho carriage?”
stammered the Hackman.
“Oh, yes, easily,” and the giant crouched
down until his knees nearly reached the
ground, an 1 half-slid, half-crammed himself
into the vehicle.
A S>m reporter called at the Spanish Hotel
in the afternoon and saw sitting on an im
provised scat of twochairs, with heavy boards
Laid across, a presence which seemed to fill
the whole room. Chang is unquestionably
the largest man in the world. He is gigantic.
As he sat there smiling and nodding, his
thoroughly Chinese face looked fully as broad
as an ordinary man's shoulders, and as long,
if not longer than a flour barrel. His cheek
bones bulge out, and are as large as a full
sized orange. He is thirty-three years old,
is the son of a wealthy silk and tea merchant
of Pekin, where'be was born, is well educated,
speaks, reads and writes English, German,
French, Italian and Spanish, and is thorough
ly courteous and gentlemanly. With Chang
is his “ secretary,” a bustling, busy’, earnest
little Frenchman named Noaud, who looks
upon the giant with admiration and delight.
“What kind of a trip did you make?” asked
“Extremely’ rough. The majority of the
passengers were quite ill ”
“ Oh, but Monsieur Chang was not one
little bit sick. Oh ! no, no. no,” interrupted
the little secretary. “We bad to have two
staterooms made into one, and a berth eleven
feet loug built expressly for him. He wasn’t
sea siek a bit. He sang a Chinese song, for
the passengers in a concert on the steamer
last Monday with immense success. Oh,
he's a great fellow !”
“ What is your exact height, Chang ?”
“ I have never been measured, monsieur.
With our people it is a superstition which
takes the form of a religious creed, that no
man roust be measured until dead. I would
rather die than allow myself to be measured.
In fact, if I vrere measured I would die at
once, I fear. I am, however, somewhere in
the neighborhood of nine feel. I will stand
up and you can eland beside me and judge
Chang rose, and rising, it seemed as though
he would never stop. The Sun reporter stands
six feet three inches in height. He, at
Chang’s suggestion, put on a high silk hat
and walked under the giant's outstretched
arm. neai'the shoulder, without coming within
two inches of his sleeve. Then, fixing the
height of his head about half way between
the giant’s waist and neek, the reporter check
ed off three feet at a guess and found that
the crown of the Chinaman's head was surely
nine feet from the floor. His hands and feet
are comparatively small and. very well formed.
He has exhibited before all the crowned heads
of Europe and Australia, and lias been the
pet of aeveral sovereigns. lie wears a
solitaire diamond riug given him by the
Emperor of Russia, which is valued at $1,400.
Attached to Ins chain is a gold medal given
him by the Berlin exhibition, which asserts
that he is the largest roan of recent times,
lie also has half a dozen immense diamond
rings given him by* rajahs in India, mayors
in Australia, and potentates from all quarters
of the globe. While talking to the reporter
lie suddenly dived into his vest pocket, which
wa* large enough to hold an ordinary man’s
head, and brought forth a ring with the
official seal and monogram of Francis Joseph
inscribed to “ Chang.” He also had a watch,
given him by Queen Victoria, which weighs
■wo pounds and a half and lias a chain nine
eet long which barely reaches around his
neck and down to Ids vest pocket.

New Year's Day.
BY REV. DR. ,J. GLUCK.
If there is any day in the year which ought
to be the day of reflection, the day of reason
ing, the day when noble resolutions are formed,
it should be the New Year’s Dav.
Merchants who have balanced their books
showing no headway, ought to reflect, reason,
and resolve, how to stop the leaks ; else their
frail ship will sink—sink when they are old
and feeble and unable to swim against the
current and swift tide.
Young men who are to fortunate as to have
steady employment and have saved nothing
from their last year’s earnings, ought to
resolve on that day to live less extravagantly,
to wear not so fine clothes and to have, in
some good and reliable saviug institution,
something laid by for the rainy days of life,
when sickness, unforeseen misfortune, or ohi
age render them unable to work. What a
blessing to have then a source to draw upon,
and to be* thus saved from being dependent
on relatives, or even become a person of
public charity. Every young man, be he
rich nr poor, ought to be careful of his means
and reraemberthatfoolssquan lertheir raonev,
but the wise husband it ar.d use it for benefi
cent and noble purposes. Young men ought
to be the staff and shield of their old parents,
their sisters, their younger brothers, and to
become useful members of society. What a
; blessing to all, when a father or a mother can
proudly and conscientiously say our sons are
useful members of the family and society.
They are pillars on which the welfare of the
family and of the State may safely rest. To
be such a son, one cannot be a spendthrift or
dreamer; but he must turn his quarter twice
before lie decides to spend it—one who dreams
not with his eves open, but who works with a
The New Tear's Day should be the very
day on which bachelors should decide to give
up single blessedness and become double
blessed, by entering the holy shrine of mat
rimony ; for no man is complete unless he
marries, and when he is married and happily
mated, his best qualities are drawn out to his
own great benefit and to that of humanity.
If men wish to prosper, live happy, make their
mark in the world, and not pass away like a
shadow on the wall, let them seriously look
around to And the right person and marry,
and thus fulfill the wise precept: ” Marry
and multiply.” A married life is the only
true life to live.
New \ ear’s day should be the day to make
a last will and testament, especially if the
estate is large, and when making our will it
would not be amiss to remember these wise
words : “It is not ray intention to leave to
my children too much of an inheritance, for
too much money only spoils them.” Let ns
leave them less money but more of a good
example, and above all a good name ; a good
name is a fortune in itself. Remember also
the public institutions liberally, and your
name as benefactor will go down to posterity.
The New Year's day should also be the
day on which the more favored, tho more
fortunate, should remember the less favored
of his family, not to give them money, for
that would degrade them ; but to assist them,
directly' and indirectly, so that they, too,
might get along better in this world ; and if
they have 6o decided upon, let them remain
firm to carry out their noble resolution, even
if they receive no thanks but ingratitu lo in
return, they will have one great satisfaction
—that of having done their duly toward lbos *>
who possess a claim on them through family
New T ear’s day should bo the day on which
the poor at large should be remembered and
appropriations be made for the coming years,
and as the year advances, not to decrease,
but rather increase the benevolent gifts,
thanking God that we are able to give—that
we are the givers, and not the suppliants.
New Year's day should be the day for heads
of families to review calmly the past year;
to see where and when mistakes were made,
and to make & note of it, in order to avoid
them in the future, If they know, after ma
ture reflection, that their children do not as
sociate with the right company, to reason
with them in time, ere it is too late, and re
member that n kind word goes farther than
a harsh one.
New Year's day should also be the day to
examine ourselves in a religious point of view.
The beast, which pastures on the field, or is
fed by the hand of man, is not endowed with
tliat blessed intellect to think of the great
hereafter, it is man only who is so blessed ;
and therefore, shall we not reason and reflect
on that which concerns us the most —the life
beyond the grave ? Can sins be forgiven?
We have our serious doubt. Sins can be re
moved only, and atoned for by sincere re
pentance and a multitude of good deeds.
T hen it is within the power of every one to
be purified of their sins, through siucere re
pentance and through a multitude of good
deeds, and every one. be he ever so poorly
educated, or so poor in means, has it within
his power to repent, to do good, and thus the
soul will return pure to the great Spirit, the
giver of all that is good—
The love of mankind is thine.
Of which none will rob thee
And Ood will love thee.
How Watches are Wade

Thfl Cincinnati Tim**, hi answering tbd
question, Fs it wrong for a lady to *'m a
gentleman when parting, after he has eacurt
c.l her home in the evening ?" says this is a
question not devoid of difficulties. and we
therefore approach it with some degree of
hesitancy. Kissing was originally a mode
of salutation only, and in some countries, we
believe, it is now restricted to that nse. As
such it expresses rereranco or worship. El
is common. nl9o. in this country and else
where to kiss the hand in salutation. To ex
press adoration, various parts of the body
were and are fd*e<l to distinguish the charac
ter of the adoration paid. Thus, to kiss the
lips is to adore the bring breath of the per
son saluted ; to kiss the feet, or ground, is to
humble oneself in adoration ; to kiss the gar
ments. is to express veneration to whatever
belongs to or touches the perrou who wears
them. There are, nowadays, various kinds
of kisses, having various meanings: ••The
kiss snatched hasty from the sidelong maid.”
(Thompson); kisses “ like grains of gold or
silver found upon the ground, of no value
themselves, but precious ns showing that a
mine is near” (Villiers); •• the kiss of wel
come and of parting—the long. Angering,
loving present one—the stolen or the mutual
the kiss of love, of joy and of sorrow—■
the seal of promise and the receipt of fulfill
ment (11aliburton); tho " loug, long kiss, a
kiss of youth and love” (Byron). The kiss
*’of parting,” spoken of by Haliburton, is the
one under consideration. Is it proper for a
young lady to indulgo in it? On genera!
principles we should say that, if you have
reason to admire the gentleman who escorts
you home, and really feel like kissing him,
do so ; if not, refrain. If you loro anothor,
refrain. It might be advisable, also, to ro.
iruui if the old folks are in hearing distance*

Last week he sought to make the samotrip, but
this time he sonct a cooler berth, and ensconced
himself in the closet of the baggage car, and
with a firm hold upon the door knob he suc
ceeded in eluding the conductor until the

The CalhouT Timex reports the narrow es*
cape of a Mr. Wooddy and his family, of (Jor
don county, one day last week. He was
crossing a river in a ferrv boat, his family
being in a wagon, when the boat sank and
the wagon body floated down the river about
a mile, carrying Mrs. Woo ldv and her thrift
children, who were seated therein, with it.
Fortunately all escaped, and the only life
that was lost was that of one of the horses.
