The vast amount of humbuggery
that is practiced in the world may be
partially learned from the great unm
ber ofs humbug advertisements that
fill tbejpapers, especially the large and
very . extensively circulated papers.
The most arrant humbugs will pay
great sums of , money for advertising
in the oaners that have tha hirwf
jculation. Of course they coiild not
I afEord to do this if they did not actual
ly humbug thousands of people by
; their advertisements. There are huu
i dreds of papers in this -country run by
n urn Dug aaYcmsemeuts alone. They
succeed in getting long list of names
on their subscription books, and they
are then well paid for their space by
the humbugs. It is sistonishing 'how
caaiiy gient uumoers oi people lire
humbugged. The most of these ad
vertisements carry humbuggery in
their very wording and appearance in
the paper. The most improbable and
impossible things are held out and
promised to the reader such things
that a moment's reflection it would
scorn, would convince the most un
sophisticated and unwary could not be
honestly done But these humbusr ad
vertisers have had such success in their
work and have reaped such a golden
narvesi; mat trreir eltrontery and assum
ptions know no bounds, so that many
of them make the most ridiculous and
and preposcerous announcements, and
find a plenty of willing dupes and cus
tomers .all over the country to make
quick answer to them. The most ready
patron of these humbug advertisers is
the young man who, having arrived at
the age of from eighteen to twenty
one, is disgusted v.-ith the almost in
visible down upon his upper lip, which
he has scraped and blacked to no ptlr
p se for a year past. He is disgusted
and disheartened at , his maiden ap
pearance, and longs for a full hirsute
turn out. He reads in his newspaper
this advertisement: "A full ' set of
whiskers guaranteed in six weeks,"
along side of a picture of a young man
about his age and stvle, literally cover
ed with a rich flowing beard and daint
ily curled mustache. He sends on,
gets.sonie of. that wonderful mixture
that promises this great thing in whis
kers, and finds after a six week's trial
that he has been humbugged -for in
stead at a flowing silic beard and ravish
ing mustache, he has a scarified upper
lip and a beardless chin. He next tries
"Love Powers," , which the advertiser
tells him will captivate the heart of
any maiden and render the road to
matrimory easy and thorn less, When
he get his "Love Powders," for which
he has paid a dollar or two, he smells
them and finds they are s:aw dust, j
But this dosen't dampen his ardor in j
the pleasurable pursuits of being hum
bugged. He wants a watch and chain,
and he goes to his paper again and
reads: "A Solid Hunting Case Gold

enormous. There are thousands who
catch at every thing new and stransreJ
as u virtue was in the novelty alone.
They never once think that virtue and
philanthropy never proceeds in this
way. It never occurs to them that an
honest man and dealer cannot give vou i
ten times ine worth ot your money and
succeed. They never think that
among all their acquaintances they
never knew an honest man who tvtp-
tended to do such things. The dupes
themselves who are honest nevvjr think
of trying to make a living by such
methods as these.
What has been said that will not ap
ply more to men than .votnen, but the
same impositions are extensivfly prac
ticed upon tham. There are a great
number of women who cannot resist
the temptation to consult the fortune
teller and clairvoyant.' They become
anxious and fidgetty about the future
whether they are to be married or
not, and if so, when, to whom, and
how many times whether he is to be
handsome and distinguished, rich or
poor and they forthwith resort to the
clairvoyant, who takes their money and
tells them all about it.
But all classes of people, the highly
intelligent and well educated, at times
seem to he fond of being humbugged.
Even Editors, who, of all other people
are. the best imformed as to the nature
and true character of advertisements,
are sometimes, in moments of undue
vigilance, caught by the smart fellows
who use their columns for tlie purpose
of carrying on their humbug business.
Humbuggery is a lasting occupation,
for thpse who engage in it jump from
one line to another of deception as each
is worked out, and are all the time
gathering in wasted money from the
people. Staff Correspondence of the

they raise themselves three inches off

Japaneze trees are dwarfed, and, in

their bobtails, look like kittens com

Executions by Electricity. -
' The new law. in the "State of New
YbrVfor the execution of criminals by
electricity in place of hanging is now
in force, ;and the State authorities are
engaged in arranging the details of the
electrical apparatus that is to be offi
cially employed." The New York
Herald gives the following particulars
of ." some experiments lately madj in
connection with the subject: ' v .
Half a dozen gentlemen learned in
the sciences of electricity and surgery
have been deputed by State authority
to visit Mr. Thomas A. Edison's fa
mous laboratory at Llewellyu Park..
Orange, N. J., and there experiment on
various lower animals, with the object
of ascertaining at what point of a
human body the electrical current can
most efficaciously be applied in order to
secure instantaneous death without
burning or disfiguring the flesh of the
victim. Several unlucky dogs and
calves and one equine quadruped were,
on the 12ch tilt., sacrificed to science in
this manner, and the results attained
were regarded as thoroughly satisfac
tory and as demonstrating conclusively
the utility and desirability of the alter
nating current as a means of produc
ing sudden and painless death, whether
applied at the head, the arms, feet, side,
spine or any other point of the body.
It was shortly after three o'clock
when the experiments commenced.
They were conducted in a large shed
situated in the rear of the laboratory
buildings, and the electric current" was
conveyed by wires from the main
structure. Those present were Dr.
Caslos F. MaeDonald, of the State
Asylum for the Insane at Auburn, Dr.
A. D. Rockwell, a leading medical
electrician of this city, Dr. Edward
Tatum, demonstrator of physiology at
the Pennsylvania State University,
Harold P. Brown, a well kuown elec
trical engineer of this city and E. A.
Keunelly, chief electri ian of the Edi
son laboratory, who represented the
"Wizard of Llewellyn."
A large Newfoundland dog was the
firjt victim. Unconscious of its doom
the poor animal willingly submitted to
the placing in position of the fatal
wires, the end of one being fastened to
Its right forepaw, while the other was
placed in proximity to its brain. Then
the strength of the current was meas
ured. All being ready, the circuit was
completed, and in an incredibly short
time the dog was dead. It had taken
001) volts of electricity and sixteen sec
onds of time to dispatch hfttK A calf
was the next subject. .It was carried,
kicking lustily, into the snacions nn-
crating room and held while the deadly
wires were arranged, this time at the
base of the brain and near the heart.
In fifteen second from the completion
of the circuit the victim was veal. A
big mongrel dog, which had been se
lected - for the succeeding sacrifice,
seemed somewhat suspicious of the
assemblage and declined to approach
the wires. He was dragged into posi
tion and stood shivering as if cogni
zant of his rapidly approaching fate.
A wire was affixed to his hind leg. an
other placed over his heart, and in less
time than it t ikes to tell it the noor
beast's anticipatory terrors were over. -j
it was decided to otter up the horse
next, and he was accordingly fed in
and prepared for the slaughter. He
looked a despondent, played-out sort of
quadruped, and if he knew what await
ed him he certainly did not object.
The same wire?, several hundred volts
and a few fleeting seconds led to his
utterly painless demise, and his carcass
was dragged aside to make room for
more calves and canines. Two medium
sized mongrels died for science, arid j
three more innocent calves were butch

Kennerlv said the results attained
could not have been more satisfactory,
but of course, not having yet discussed
the subject, they could not publicly
advance an opinion on the greater
eligibility of one portion of the body
than another for the application of
the electric current. D.ath, painless
and speedv, had resulted in every in
stance. The force of the current used
varied from. five hundred to one thou
sand volts, alternating from two hun
dred and eighty to three hundred per
second, thus emphatically disproving
the contention advanced bv certain
advocates of the continuous current
that one thousand volts of the alterna
ting current would prove comparative
ly harmless, aud that considerably
over one thousand volts would be nec
essary to insure death. The time oc
cupied had varied from ten seconds in
the case of one dog to twenty-five sec
onds. As for the bodies of the slain,
they so completely ' escaped disfigure
ment that the veal was perfectly suit
able for human food, 'and it was re
turned to the butcher who had brought
the calves to the laboratory.- -

A COUNTRY WHERE WOMEN ARE TREATED
A3 BEASTS OF BURDEN.
a true Arab, when speaking with
another iu reference to the women of
his own country, begins his remarks
with "Ajellak Allah." Literary the
words mean, ;"May God elevate you,"
and in connection with the mention of
females is construed as a wish that the
hearer may be put above contamina
tion by the subject tinder discussion.
The Moslems have a proverb that runs
A man can bear anything but the
mention of bis women. j
This expresses in the shortest but the
most forcible way the prevailing opin
ion among; the male Arabs. f the opr
posite sex. Through Egypt and Pal
estine women are regarded on much
the plane with dogs and donkeys.
i he birth of a son is an occasion of
rejoicing, but when a daughter conies
into a family, one of.their writers says
the "threshold weeps forty days when
ever a girl is born. The more infor
mation there is gathered of the actual
condition of the females among the
Arabic people, the more pathetic their
condition appears. Week in and week
out the maidens and matrons toil in
the fields and mills. They are slaves
to be beaten and abused at will. The
children as a class are bright, intelli
gent and capable of being educated as
well as the young of any foreign
country. . But the people are all gen
erally poor and shiftless, and the little
ones so ragged and dirty, until they
seem to lose all hone or so f resrwr.
Indescribable laziness controls eveiV
body, and the filthiness of manv is in
keeping. The footpaths through Syria
are ooruered usually by cactus and
pomeg.anate trees, and in the shade
the people sit lazying with their knees
up to tneir chins, lazying the days
away. The women ' do the work.
Frequently ons processions of women
are seen staggering under burdens of
brush wood, but no man ever thinks of
offering a helping hand. Generation
after generation goes on with no ad
vance. The prevailing? sentiment is
well illustrated by the utterance of one
of their philosophers, who said they did
not plant trees as they would not live
tin they were grown, and it their chil
dren wanted trees they could plant
There are many stories of the - over
whelming extent to which deceit and
kindred vices prevail among Moham
medans. In Bey root they say "there
are twenty-four inches of hypocrisy in
the world, with twenty-three of them
spread over Syria." There is a nursery
tale of Satan's coming on earth with
seven bagsrof lies to distribute, but fall
ing asleep they were all accidentally
opened in Syria. Profanity is much
used. They do not swear in English,
but their words mean swear just the
same. "Allah" is God; "Yullah" is
0 God; "Inshullah" means If God will;
"Wullah" and "Bismillah," in the
name of God, and these words both
men and women throw into their talk
with bewildering raniditv. It is re-
lated by a missionnary that when try
ing to persuade a shiekh not to swear
the latter earnestly replied, "Wullah,
I will not." " .
Greediness for gain is a predominant
passion among adult Arabs, and is im
pressed upon the children from their
first hour of understanding. "Back
sheesh" is the cry and leading hone.
Women and children are beaten with a
view of exciting pity among foreigners
and through sympathy reaching their
purse. Every man is naturally 'a despot,
and one of the mo4 sordid, cold and
calculating faces to le seen in any
country is that of an Oriental pharisee
with his philactery on his forehead.
One of the notable things is the un
varying way ii which things go
on, century after century. There
has been little change in many
of the customs since Bible times. In
the sacred book Isaiah has a verse giv
ing the wuter carriers cry, jus follows:
"H, every one that thirsteth, co.ue ye
to the waters."
The water carrier of to-day goes
around with the same crv, the same
skin bag and the metal saucers that he
claps together in time with his call, as
when Isaiah was written. A thing
repulsive to Americans is the early age
at which girls are married and the domes
tic arrangements. Girls are married be
fore they are 10 years old, and are often
grandmothers before thev are 2 ). A
learned doctor of Damascus m irned his
wife when she was 1 1 years of are. It
, , , i '
was his claim mat oy marrying so
young a girl he could he could train
her as she should be. Girls are taken
from the English schools at 8 years of .
age to prepare for approaching union
with some man as old as their fathers.

thirteen years ago, and the prediction
was also made at that time that the
tide would turn, giving us an era of
business activity during the years 1S89.
1890 and 1891.
The persistence of the repetition of
these trade cycles is becoming a com
mercial wonder, they ride triumphant
over all events which have occurred
during the past sixty years to oppose
such regularity. These cycles have
been verifying through the introduc
tion of railroads, steamboats, the elec
tric telegraph, the suspension of specie
payment in 1837 and 1857, the panic
of 1873, through the Mexican war,
our civil war, through all of the presi
dential terms siuce the administration
of Jackson up, and up to the present
time override and defeat the aims of
the present administration, while using
the whole machinery of the govern
ment for re-election, with the avowed
policy of a low tariff, which would de
press our industries. :
What else can a reasonable person
ask to prevent their repetition? Bet
ter times and higher prices will prevail
for the next three years, and no hap
pening or opposition can prevent them.

tion has laid a broad basis for a gener
al recovery of confidence, an. element
that has been wanting for the past
four years, which we have observed -by
the many idle furnaces, mills, and fac
tories, and the lowest prices for nails,
steel rails and pig iron for a number
The year 1889 opens with cheerful
hopes. Our crops during the past
year have been abundant; the prospects
of an increased foreign demand for our
surplus grain and provisions at ad
vanced prices give the farmers renewed
energy. We must look forward to a
hot and dry summer this year, as we
are not vet bevond the period for a
general drought; however, with fair
early crops business and . prices will
show considerable improvement in the
nerous period, and the outlook is for a
(li-rilail imnmrttnipnt. ind iiil i'n nre in
the prices of iron, railroad stocks, and
m all manuractured commodities.
Whenever our manufacturers are pros
perous every industrial class is pros
I predict that the price ot iron will
advance, and the average price for the
Tear 1889 will be higher than the av
erage for 1888; and I als predict that
.a 1 m 1 -
there will be a woiideriui advance in
prices for iron, stocks, and all products
and commodities in the year "1890; all
business will be prosperous, it will be a
year of good crops and the boom year
iu this period of activity.
In the beginning of the year 1891
speculation will be at its height as
great business inflation pig iron $50
per ton in the markets of our country.
I predict tha. there will be a panic in
the year 1891. The over-trading and
general inflation of Imsiuess ami ex
pansion of credit and confidence will
produce this result. The panic proV
ably will be brought about by the ef
fects of ha.ivy rainfalls aud fl Kids, or
by the collap-e of some large financial
bushier firm. This panic will be a
commercial and financial revulsion,
and will-bi folio .veJ by a lonj djwn
sweep of prices. .

a strong crotched stick over the line,
keeping it to the ground; the windlass
goes round slowly; each boat floats :
steadily toward the landing, taking in
the seme as before; the torches und

blaze brightly; men and women come
hurrying from their cabins; the master
walks out from his lodge; two stout
