Can cat in moderation now food that
two years ago I dared not touch. At the

I believe, of the skin ; for the last fif

It invariably made its appearance in

I got warm in bed it would commence
itching. There was no eruption until I

Bare Instance of Self-Denial,
In the laat German war, a Cap
tain of cavalry was commanded to
go foraging. He set oat at the
head of his company, going to that
section which was assigned him.
It was a secluded valley, where
nothing could be seen save woods.
fl perceived at the' door of an
humble oabin an old hermit, with
white beard. ."My father,'' said the
officer, "show me a field where I
can forage my horses t"
"Directly," said the hermit.
This good old man, placing him
self at their head, recrossed the
valley. After a quarter of an hour's
march, they found a beautiful
held of barley. -'This is what I
want," said the Captain. " Wait a
moment," said his coudactor; "you
shall be satisfied." They continued
to march, and arrived about a
quarter of a mile further, at anoth
er field of barley. The troops im
mediately dismounted reaped the
grain, placed it upon their croups,
and remounted. Tbe cavalry offi
cer then said to bis guide: "My
father, you have made us go too
far unnecessarily the first field was
better than this." ''That is true,

was not mine." Ex.

Population of indent Borne.
After carefully examining all the
data we have, all the statements of
various ancient writere who allude
to it, and all the iects which seem
to bear on the question, I am con
vinced that I am rather understat
than overstating tbe poplation ol
ancient Kome when I estimate it
at 4,000,000. It is much more
probably tb.u it wa grtater than
that it was less. DeQuincey also
estimates the population of Kome
at -4,000,000. I will cite only one
fact, and then leave the question.
The Circus Maximus was construct
ed to hold 250,000, or, according to
Victor, at a later period probably,
Taking the smaller number, then,
it would seat one in sixteen of all
the inhabitants if there were
4,000,000. Bat as one-half the
population was composed of slaves,
who must be struck out of these
spectators, when the circus was
built there would be accommoda
tion then for one in eight ot the
total population, excluding slaves.
Reducing again tbe number one
half by striking out the women,
there would be room for one in
Again, striking the young chil
dren, and the old men, and sick
anc impotent, you would have
accommodation for nearly the
whole popultion. Is it possible to
believe that the Romans contructed
a circus to hold tho entire popula
tion of Borne capable of going to it!
for such must have been the case
were there onle 4,000,000 of Inhab
itants. But suppose there were'
only 4,000,000 inhabitants, it is
plain from tbe mere figures that it
would never have been possible to
half fill the circus. Blackwood's

present shape in 1753. On one
side of it stands a monumental
cross in memory of some of the
Highlanders who fought for their
country daring the Indian mutiny.
Near the Castle is a vaulted arch
way, showing traces, within the
grooves, of ancient portcullises and
massive gates. At a higher sum

On the ground floor, at the south
east corner, is Queen Mary's Room,
in which James VI. was born in
156G, and from the window of which
he was let down in a basket
when he was about a week old, this
being done for fear the enemies of
his family might seek him out and
murder him. The baby king was
gotton safely down to the street
below, and was taken to Stilling

On the east side of the palace
; yard is the Crown Room, where
i the most precious of the ancient
jewels the regalia are kept, to
gether with the crown, sceptre,
sword of state and Lord Treasurer's
I silver rod of office.
On one side -of the citadel is
Half Moon Battery, connected with
Calton Hill, a lofty eminence sur
mounted Dy Lord JNelson's monu
maent, by electric apparatus, which
every day, when the clock strikes
1 on Calton Hill, discharges a gun
at the Castle, which is called the
1 o clock time gun. Two other
points of interest about the Castle
are St. Margaret's Chapel and,
upon the highest rock, the King's
Bastion where still stands the
frightful-looking Mons Meg Can

and lie down. This immense gun

On one side is the Firth of Forth,
with ships riding upon it, all sails

Very careful calculations show
j that daring the ending September
30th, 1888, 53,317 pounds of butter
were brought to Raleigh from points
outside of the State. Nearly
twenty-seven tons were thus im
ported into one city in a year
There must have been during tbe
year hundreds of tons bought by
our people from without the State
There is great need for home pro
jduction to supply our own de
mands. Tbe Experiment Station
I proposes to foster the dairy in
dnstry and aid in its development
so we will not need to purchase
I from abroad. Of the above amoaut
135,060 pounds were used herein
.the fall and winter months, 18,257
! pounds in the spring and summer
I months. By the aid of ensilage it
I will be possible to feed economi

Strawbeiries at N. J. Agricultural
Every spring the grower of small
; fruit is overruu with circular pic-
; ture describing wonderful straw
i berries, which the disseminators
! promise will supersede all others
now grown. Nine tenths of these
new berries are either old sorts re
named or if new possess no features
entitling them to prominence over
older sorts. But to ascertain these
facts the grower is involved in
much expense, irritation and loss
of time. The Experiment Station
are intended to do this for him and
then tell him the exact truth so far
as his stctiou is concerned. This
we are endeavoring to do at the
North Carolina Agricultural Ex
periment Station at Raleigh. We
are endeavoring to test all, old
and new, under like conditions of
soil and climate, and not only this
but we are growing from seed
thousands of strawberry plants in
the hope of producing a variety
better suited to our State than
those now grown. We want the
active co-operation of every fruit
grower in the State, and want them
to question us on every matter of
interest in their culture. Every
careful grower learns facts of inter
est and all have their special diffi
culties. W. F. Massey, Horticulturist.
A six year old boy wrote his first
composition on water: "Water is
good to drink, to bathe in, and to
skate on. When I was a little baby
the nurse used to wash me every
morning in water. I have been
told the iDjuns wash themselves
but once in ten years. I wish I
was an Injun."
The man who starts in pursuit
of fortune without carefully sur
veying the ground and laying
down his line of march hefore

is pretty sure to be caught by
the "wait-a-bit thorns of specu
lation, and left hopelessly strug
gling in their midst, a ridiculous
spectacle to all right-thinking
Map out your course; young
man, before you set forth on
your business journey. While
you are yet out of the tumult
and turmoil of the busy world
adopt a set of principles. Let
them be such as your conscience
and your common sense approve.
Then fashion a code of laws for
your future government rules
of conduct, based on the duties
you owe to God; to your
neighbor and yourself.
Don't wait until you are
assailed by temptation or beset
with difficulties to determine
what you shall do in either
dilemma. Determine in advance
what ought to be done under
certain circumstances, and when
they occur do it. You are better
qualified to judge rightly what
is just and prudent in any
contingency before the contin
gency is upon you, than you can
be in the moment or difficulty.
In v'our trouble, don't trust to
the impulse of the moment.
Impulse is a blind guide in
serious matters. Hfjcr oacic to
yovr cnart. i his has been tne
practice of wise and go id men
from time immemorial.
Experience is no doubt a
capital teacher, but her lessons
are bitter; and if you begin life
with a cool head, an honest
purpose, a dauntless spirit and
fixed principles and rules of
conduct of the right kind, you
yvill be all the more likely to
escape the lash or that hard
task-mistress. JLar j'our course
straight in the beginning, and
stick to it as closely as you can

Mary, the commonest of all
names given to woman is yet
one of the sweetest. Byron
assures us that he had an abso
lute passion for it. It signifies,
exalted; Maria and Marie the
latter French are only other
forms of Mary, and have the
same meaning. Martha signi
fies bitterness. Anne, Anna,
Hannah and probably Nancy
are from tbe same source, and
signify kind or gracious; Ellen
was originally Helen, the Latin
being Helena, and the French
Helene the meaning being
according to some, alluring
and according to others, one
who pities. Jane signifies the
same as Anna, Sarah or Sally, a
princess, and the morning star.u
