Hints on Calling.
When you are ushered into the parlor stare
around the room and examine everything that
happens to be lying on the table.
Tf a dog or child comes into the room take
it in your lap. If the child cries don’t mind
jit. It is well enough to get acquainted with
If it is the dinner hour when you call, don't
hurry. The cook can put the dinner on the
stove and keep it warm.
If you have a cane or parasol, twirl it with
3’our fingers. A little practice will enable
you to balance it on your chin or nose. If it
fall and break a vase or punch a hole in a
picture, of course you can apologise.
If you happen to be seated near some other
caller, it is quite proper to turn your back to
the individual. It shows that you are inde
Open the piano and begin to play, no mat
ter whether you have any skill or not. In
fact, the less you know about playing the
longer you should continue at it.
Handle all the ornaments in the room. Y'ou
might whittle the furniture a little to ascer
tain whether it is real walnut or an imitation.
Pull out your watch every five minutes to
see what time it is.
If you find the room a little warm proceed
at once to open the doors and windows. It
gives the caller an appearance of feeling per
fectly at home.
If you find the lady upon whom you call
about to go out, commence some long story.
It will probably’ amuse her very much and
she may forget that she was going out at all.
If you are anew comer in the neigborhood,
put on your bonnet and shawl and call on
the neighbors at once. Don’t wait to put
<iown carpets, or put up stoves, or put down
coal in the cellar, or hang pictures, or any
thing, but call.
After you have arisen to go, sit down again
as often as you think of anything more to
Walk around the room examining the pic
tures while waiting the hostess. A slight in
spection will tell you which are oil paintings
and which ehromos. Then an accidental in
quiry as to what tea-store she got “that chro
mo from” will throw a glamour of interest
around the visit and enliven conversation that
might otherwise lag.
Don’t discuss weighty topics in making
calls. Some light and breezy subject, like
the tarifF, the binomial theorem, or infant
damnation is best.
If the room is crowded don’t allow any one
to outstay you. Take off your things and
take out } T our knitting work, if you have had
the forethought to put it in your pocket.
If the person you call on be in reduced cir
cumstances put on all the jewelry vou have.
And go in a fine carriage with a liveried
driver if you have to hire the establishment.
That is to say\ if you want your friends to
feel real good and comfortable. —Cincinnati
lie sat on the window sill in the post office
and jingled forty cents in change, and when
another boy asked him if he was going out
to look for Christmas presents, he replied :
‘‘No, I hain’t. I’m in luck this year.”
“ How ?”
” Well, my sisters’s down with the measles,
and she can’t expect anything but medicine.
Ben run away two weeks ago, and I won’t
have to get him anything. Main pulled my
hair } r esterday, and she knows she’s gone up
for any Christmas present.”
“ But there’s your father.”
‘‘Oh, yes. I expected I was stuck on the
old man, and was kinder looking around lor
a nice pipe, but this morning be gave me
one on the car, and that settled his Christmas
goose in a second. These ’ere forty cents
are gong to be used to buy a good boy a
heap of peanuts, taffy, chestnuts and candy,

Ministers’ and Actors’ Salaries.
Remarks are often made implying that the
ministers are overpaid, or, at least, that such
men as Mr. Beecher and Dr. Storrs are ex
travagantly paid. The following figures given
by the New York Tribune are worthy of being
borne in mind : Beecher gets $20,000 ; Edwin
Booth SIOO,OOO a year; Dr. llall, of Fifth
Avenue, and Dr. Dix, of Trinity, get $15,000,
while E. A. Sothern earns over $150,000 as
Lord Dundreary, and John E. Owens plays
thirty weeks annually for $90,000. Talmage
preaches for $12,000, and Joe Jefferson plays
forty weeks as Rip Van Winkle, and earns
$120,000. The scholarly and gifted Dr.
Storrs has SIO,OOO, ar.d Maggie Mitchell earns
$30,000 to $50,000. Dr. Cuyler works hard

FOR THE PEOPLE.
A New Southern Route to the Sea.
Within a few days past anew Southern
route to Charleston and the sea has been
organized by’ the purchase of the Kentucky’
Central Railroad and the formation of con
nection, thus described by the Cincinnati
The new route to the sea will be over the
following line : By the Kentucky Central to
Lexington, and over an extension of the
Central to Livingston, Kentucky, where the
road will connect with the Louisville and
Nashville Railroad, thence by the Louisville
and Nashville to the Tennessee State line,
where the new truuk line is to connect with
the Knoxville and Ohio Railroad, which is to
be extended b} r the Atlantic, Mississippi and
Ohio Railroad, which controls it from its
present terminus, Careyville, Tennessee, to
the junction at the State line specified, thence
by the Knoxville and Ohio, Atlantic, Missis
sippi and Ohio, and Charleston and Augusta
Railroads, to Charleston, South Carolina,
forming an unbroken trunk line through the
South to the Atlantic ocean. The probability
is that the new road will enter this city over
the Pennsylvania railroad bridge, at the foot
of Butler street, though, as Mr. Nettcr
jokingly remarked, perhaps the Southern
Railway might like to have the new road come
in over its bridge. In the opinion of Mr.
Nettcr the new road will be in a better posi
tion to command tin Southern trade than the
Southern Railway, because of the combina
tions which will be made with the Pittsburg,
Cincinnati, and St. Louis, C., I.; St. L. and
C., and other roads running north, east and
west from tins city. In a financial point of
view, Mr. Netter considered the investment
one of the best of the da}’. The road was
now pay’ing 4 per cent., and he expected to
see the stock recently' purchased quoted at
par within a year.
John Newton’s two Heaps.
“I see in the world,” said good old John
Newton nearl3 r a hundred 3’ears ago, “ two
heaps, one of misery, the other of happiness
It is but little I can do to take from the one
heap and add to the other, but let tne do what
I can. If a child has lost a halfpenny, and
if by giving it another, I can wipe away its
tears, I feel that lam doing something. I
would gladly do a greater thing if I could,
but let me do this little thing.” In all this,
John Newton was just following his Master,
who “ went about doing good.” Let us all
seek to have the same spirit in us.
Who is this young girl, so gently helping
the poor lame boy down the steps at the
Sabbath school door? We do not know.
But we think we know something about her.
“By’ their fruits }’e shall know them,” —and
we know her by her fruits. She has the op
portunity’, and she is doing a little deed of
kindness : so we arc sure she has a kind heart
within. That is the root, and this is the
Perhaps there are some of our readers
(are you one of them ?) who never did a kind
ness to anybody in their lives. They think
of no one but self, —their own praise, their
own comfort, their own pleasure, their own
profit. But there are others, we know, who
try, like John Newton, to be always taking a
v.t from the one heap and adding it to the
other. Among their brothers and sisters at
home, —among their companions at school,
—wherever they go,—they’ are always trying
to be of use, and to show kindness to others.

The reporter stared a little, but the shootist
went on to say :
“ Please put in that one of my uncles wa9
hung by the vigilance committee in San
Francisco, and two more of them are making
shoes in the Illinois penitentiary ; that another
one of them is practicing law in New York,
and my only sister ran away from home with
the clown of a circus ; that as far as yon can
learn there is not a member of the family that
has not done something disgraceful.”
“ Why, what do you want all that in the
paper for ?”
“ Because I am sick of reading in papers

families in the country. Just put it down for
once, that one of the parties to the unfortunate

Barbed Wire Fences.
The first step toward a barbed wire fence
was made about nine years ago. A farmer
living a few miles west of Aurora, Kane
County, 111., finding that bis cattle pushed
their heads through the space, between the
strands of a common plain wire fence, studied
on the problem of how to prevent them. He
drove short pieces of stout wire into fencing
split with a saw into pieces only an inch and
a half wide and hung them to one or more of
the wires that, composed the fence. The plan
worked well, and he had barbs manufactured
in a factory that were sharpened at both ends.
He put these barbed attachments on all the
wire fence about his place and they attracted
Soon afterward he obtained a patent on his
invention and commenced to sell farm, town
ship, and county rights. In the course of a
year many miles of wire fence in the northern
part of this State were equipped with these
barbed attachments, the only objections to
which were their cost and their liability to
sag and warp unless they were secured to the
fence-wire with several pieces of cord or small
wire. 1 lis invention stimulated others wherever
it was introduced. At least a dozen patents
were issued for barbed fence-wire or barbed
metallic fencing of sonic sort in the course of
the next year. In a short time several suits
for infringement .were brought by the pro
prietors of these patents, that had become
very valuable. In the meantimes a large
number of machines were invented and
patented for making barbs or-securing them
to wire. In 1874, it, is stated that ten thou
sand pounds of barbed fence wire were manu
factured in this county. This year the total
manufacture will probably reach fifty million
pounds. Almost all railway companies have
adopted it. It is finding its way into regions
where rails, boards and stones has been em
ployed as materials for fencing since the first
settlement commenced.— Chicago Times.
A Wonderful Clock.
Mr. Felix Meier, of Detroit, Mich., after
nearly ten years of patient labor, has pro
duced a clock which, not excepting that of
Strasburg, is the most wonderful clock of the
world. It is 18 feet high. 8 feet wide, 5 feet
deep, and weighs 4,000 pounds. The frame
work is of black-walnut and elegantly carved.
Washington sits beneath the marble dome
with a colored servant on either side guarding
the doors. On. the four corners of the* face
of the clock are four figures, emblematic of
the different stages of human life: two arc
females, one holding an iufant. the other with
a child ; the third is a man of middle age.
while the fourth is a Ggure of an old gray
bearded man. All of these figures have bells,
each with a tone in keeping with the age rep
resented. Tim infant strikes its sweet-toned
bell at the first quarter hour; the larger bell
of the youth rings out' the end of the half
hour, followed by tin strong resonant tone
of the bell of middle age at the third quarter,
and the hour closing with the mournful hell
of the aged man. Death, represented by a
carved skeleton just above the clock race,
then strikes the hour, at the same time a
carved cupid pops out on either side, with
wings, to indicate that time flies. This is
followed by sweet music, when Washington,
rising from his chair, presents the Declara
tion of Independence, and a door on the right
is opened by the servant, and each of the Ex-
Presidents, donned in the costume of his
time (including President Hayes), files before
the “Father of his Country.” face him, and
raise their hands, walk across the platform
and pass out of sight, at a door which is af
terwards closed by the second servant.
Washington takes his seat, and all is quiet
again save the heavy tick of the wonderful
time keeper. Though such a clock shows a
great deal of ingenuity, it is of little practi
cal value.— American Agriculturist for Jurat
How Watches are Made-
It will be apparent to any one, who will
examine a SOLID GOLD WATCII, that
aside from the necessary thickness for en- j
graving and polishing, a large proportion of
the precious metal used, is needed only to !
stiffen and hold the engraved portions in
place, and supply the necessar}' solidity and
strength. The surplus gold is actually need
less so far as utility and beauty are con
cerned. IN JAMES BOSS’ ’ PATENT

cions metal i3 overcome, and the same so |
lidity and steengtii produced at from one- j
third to one half of the usual cost of solid
cases. This process is of the most simple
nature, as follows: a plate of nickle compo
sition metal, especially adapted to the pur
pose, has two plates of solid gold soldered
one on each side. The three are then passed
between polished steel rollers, and the re
sult is a strip of heavy plated composition,
from which the cases, backs, centres, bevels.
&c., are cut and shaped by suitable dies and
formers. The gold in these cases is suffi
ciently thick to admit of all kinds of chasing,
engraving and enamelling; the engraved
cases have been carried until worn perfectly
smooth by time and use without removing

The Oldest Han Living.
At a recent meeting of physicians b
Bogota, Dr. I.uiz ilern&udes read a paper of
unusual interest. It was an account of a visit
he paid to one Miguel Solis, a half-breed
farmer living in the foot hills of the Sierra
Mesilia. The remarkable thing about Miguel
is that he gives himself out as one hundred
and eighty fears old, “ more or less,” and his
neighbors believe it isagooddealmore rather
than less. Gray-beaded men told the doctor
that they remember Miguel as a reputed
ceutenarian when they were boys; also the
name of Miguel Soli*, colored farmer, appears
in a list, still preserved, of the contributors
to the building fund of a Franciscan Monas
tery near San Sebastian, which was founded
in 181*2, and that the present abbot is posi
tive it is the same man. The doctor found
the old fellow at work in his orchard—
parchment skinned, robust, active, his snow
" hite hair twisted turban fashion round his
head, and his eyes so bright, that the doctor
felt uncomfortable when they were turned
upon him. Questioned as to his habits,
Miguel told the doctor that the secret of
living a century or two was very simple—
merely never getting drunk and never over
“ I cat only once a day a big hearty meal',
which it often takes me half an hour to gt
through with; but you sec it is not possible
in halt an hour to cat more than you enu di
gest in the next twenty-four.**
lie went on to say that he hadn’t made ap
his mind about meat, but did not cat much
of it; lie fasted on the first and middle days
of each month, eating nothing, but drinking
all the water he could swallow ; he always let
cooked food cool before eating it; that was
why his teeth were as sound e. 9 180 years ago.
It was hardly necessary to add that all the
Indians in the neighborhood firmly believe
that old Miguel has sold himself to tho devil.
George Eliot’s Romola.
A timely interest is given, by the death of
the author, to the new edition of her master
piece. “ Romola,” just issued by the Ameri
can Book Exchange, New York. It shows
her work at its best and strongest, and at tho
same time gives the reader the opportunity
to acquire a lasting familiarity with tho
scenes and society of mediaeval Italy. It is
one of the few great historical novels
of the world. It is issued in handy and
beautiful form, extra cloth binding, simple
but rare elegance and taste in design, and
like the other issues of the “ Literary Revo
lution” its cost is almost nominal, viz., 35
cents. It is one of a series intended to form
a library of classic fiction, which will include
one representative and characteristic work
of each of the great authors who have won
lasting fame in the realm of fiction. Life is
too short ami too full of work to permit tho
reading of all that is beautiful and valuable
in these creations of tho imagination, but
even very* busy people can find tirno to road
one book by each of the score of authors who
have won immortal fame and place iu the
affections of the pcoplo. Not to be acquain
ted with them is to bo ignorant of much that
is most important and most interesting in the
history of nations and men. Not to posset#
them is to be deprived of most fruitful and
profitable sources of cnjo3*mcnt. Among
those issued, or nearly read)*, are Scott's

It is not pleasant to record the fact that
large families of destitute immigrants are
constantly landing in this country. Most of
these are Germans who leave their native
land with scarcely enough money to cross
the ocean. U|>oii arrival, such are taken in
charge by the immigrant authorities in New
York or Philadelphia, who provide-for them
until employment can be secured. The num
ber of destitute families that have come this
fall is unusually large. Last week the com
missioners spent S6BO for bread, and they
have at present twenty families on hand.
