Lindy, I'li DSTow, Lindy, rlencea man would hav e shrunk from starting a back, fire in such a wind- She fully realized tho danger; but it was possible escape from otherwis e in evitabJe destruction, and she hesitated not an instant to attempt it. Cautious­ ly startin g a blaze, she stood wit h a wet bag ready t o smother the first un­ ruly flame. The grea t flro to tho southwar d wa s rapidly approaching. I*rairie chickens and other birds,driven from their nests, wer e flying over, utterin g distressed cries. Th e air wa s full of smoke and burnt grass, and the crackling of the tiames could plainly be heard. I t wa s a tryin g moment. Th e increased roar of the advancin g tiro warne d Lind y that she had but very little tim e in which to complete the house and barn, still, if she hurried too m irh.shc would lose control of the Arc she had started, and wit h it all hope of safety. The heat was intense, the smoke suffocating, tho rapid swingin g of the heavy ba^ most exhausting, but she was unconscious of theso tilings. Th e extremit y of the danger inspired her with wonderful strength and endur­ ance. Instead of losing ecu rage, she increased her almost superhuman exer­ tions, and in another brief interval tho task was completed. Non e too soon, either, for the swiftl y advancin g col­ umn hart nearly reached the wavering , str tigfflinu;, slow-movin g lino Lind y had sent out to meet it. It was a wild . fiLsrtaating, half terri­ ble, half beautiful scon«'. JL l^o tongues of flame, leaping above each other wit h | airy,fantastic grace, seemed, cat-like, to toy witli their virtues before devourin g them. A sudden, violen t gust of wind , and then •with a frreat cnu-kling roar tho two fires met, the names shooting high into tho air as* they rushed together. For one brief, glorious moment they remained thero. lapping tho air with their fierce, hot tongues, then suddenly dropping, they died cjuickly out, and whore an instant before had been a wall of fire was nothing no w but a cloud of blue smoke rising from the blacken' ed ground, and here and thero a sickly name finishing an obstinate tuft of grass. Th e fire on each side meetin g no obstacle, swep t quickly by, and Lind y stood gazing, spell bound, after it, as it darted and flashed in terrible zigzag* lines farther and farther away . \Oh.

Java, wit h its sixtw n activ e and in­ numerable quiescent \ olcanoes, is used to eruptions, some o f which hav e been even more dcstructi v e than the lscbia earthquake. Some of the Jav a vol\ canoes rise to a height of l'Z.OOO feet, and, as w e havo said, in past tim e their eruptions havo been enormously de­ structive. I n 1772. for example, the volcano of Pajuuidnj ang, in the south­ wes t part o f the island, thre w out such an immense quantity of soorira and ashes in a singlo nigh t that an area havin g a radius of seven miles was covered wit h a layer Qfty feet thick. Fort y nativ e villages wer e buried beneath it, and three thousand persons are supposed to hav e perished in tills one night. Still more terribly destruc­ tiv e was the eruption of Moun t Galung- gong, a fe w miles t;ii-*-»t of the former, on Oct. y, 1H22 A t midday, under a cloudless sky. with not a breath stir­ ring, a dark, dense mass rt>»e from the old volcano and spread itself out wit h such appalling rapidity that in a fe w moments tho whol e landscajpo was Hh rouded in the darkne»s of nigh t Urif^bt flashes occasionally pierced tho darkness, a deluge of hot wate r and mud sliot up f rom tho crater, and pou red dow n the mountain sides, sweepin g awa y trees and beasts and h ii man bod i<*s in its seething mass. early everythin g was dtajtroyod for a radius of twent y miles round. A second eruption four days after oom- plet<*d the cutustiophe. Thi s was ac­ companied by an earthquake, Th o summit of the mountain was broken > down , one side, covered wit h forest, became a semi-circular gulf; new hills and valleys are said to hav e been form­ ed, and rivers had their courses changed, as many as 1 14 villages were destroyed, and 4(X)(J people killed. Th e remarkable thin g is that no record existed of any previous eruption of the mountain, which was situated in one of the most fertile valleys of -Java. I n 1H43 it is estimated that Moun t Guntuo flung forth ashes and sand to tbe ox tent of '20,000,000 tons; in 1877 an earthquake caused tho death of 1000 in tho tow n of Jokgokarta\ alone; in 187^2 one of tbe most activ e volcanoes Jvlerapi, brought death to many of tbe dweller s around; whil e the damag e to be feaxed from tho ashes throw n out by the same mountain interferes wit h tbo plantin g of coffee in tbe neighbor­ ing districts.

Thi s is one reason wh y tho expor t o f butter does not increase so rapidly as its manu­ facture, and wh y th e price is maintain- ed BO hig h as it is. Londo n speculators are buyin g up our trad e dollars. I t is said that theso purchases are made in the expectation that Congress wil l some tim e make trade dollars a legal tender or direct their redemption at face value. I t appears that ove r 40.000 miles of railroad hav e been built in the Unite d States since and including 1879. Thi s is about one-third of the entire mileage or tho country. Las t year,tb o amount raised to build theso roads was ove r *700,000.000. German y has a temperance reviva l such as was novor know n in that country before. I t is led by Count A£oltke, and many eminent men are amon g its foremost workers. Th e German reformers havo not ye t attain­ ed tho standard 'of total abstinence, but are preaching moderation.

These tw o classes are those wh o ow n cowherds and those wh o hav e nothin g but steers. Th e former are the smaller investors and the latter the wealth y stockmen. Th e latter buy the year­ lings from tho cow-herders and graz e them until they becomes beeves, whe n they sell thorn to tho various buyers, topping out the finest for tho eastern and foreign markets and send ing tho tailings in to UM at the same price. Thi s system of monopolizing the beef catflc in the hands of tho hoavy capi­ talists is wha t is no w keeping up the price of beef, although aomo of tho stockmen do not kno w it themselves and hav e only adopted tho system t o avoid being l>othered wit h cows. Th e shipment of beef to Englan d has be­ come a large factor. I n the last throe years there has been such a heavy in­ vestment of Scotch and EngUsh capital that it is a fact that Ahree-fourths of the cattle interest of Texas , Colorado and Wyomin g is no w owne d and con_ trolled by it. Th e ranges are being gradually encroached upon. as they were in Texas , anil are becomin g mor e crowde d every year, whil e tbe marke t for the product is extendin g ever y year.

Afte r i reading the indictment to him the question was put \Ho w wiy you -an- you guilt y or not guilt y V\ I f he said not guilty, \ the nex t (piestion was X'ulprit, ho w wil l you bo tried? \ T o which tho prisioner had to answer, **by od and by my country.** I f he will­ fully omi tted ei t h er port i on o f th nt, answer he was said to stand mute, and jury was swor n to say whether he stood mute o f malice or mutct by the visitation o f God. i f they found hi m mut e of malice, that wa s equivalen t to pleading guilt y in cases of treason or misdemeanor, but in cases of felony he was condemned, after m uch exhorta­ tion to the \peine forte et dure\ that is, to be stretched naked on bis back, and to hav o iron laid upon hi m as much as b e could bear, and so t o con­ tinue, fed upon bad bread and stag, i nant wate r on alternate days, till he either pleaded or died. Thi s strange 1 rule was not abolished till the year 1772^ whe n standing mute in cases of felony was made equivalent to a con­ viction. A case actually occurred, as late as 1726, whe n one Burnwater , ac­ cused at Kingsto n assizes o f murder refused t o plead and wa s pressed tor an hour and thrco-quartexs wit h near­ ly four hundred weigh t of iron, after whic h he pleaded not guilty and wa s convicte d and banged. I n 1658 a Ma­ jor Strang e way s was pressed to death- Th e object of refusing to plead wa s that, as in that case there was no con - -viction, no fox feitnro took placeC and tbe property of tbe accused person was thus preserve d for bis heir. Cocoa and Chocolate. Many drinkers of these pleasant beverages are unaware as to tbe method by which the cocoa seeds are obtained. Cocoa, or cacao, is extract­ ed from the soed of small trees of the genus theodroma. which, whe n culti­ vated, grow s from twelv e f eot to eighteen foot h Igh, hut to a higher elevation in their wild state. Th e liowers are small, and cluster on the branches and trunk, th© matured fruit appearing as though artificially attach ed. Out o f each cluster only on e pod 1 H allowed to mature, and this when full grow n Is from seven inches to ton inches* long, by three inches to four, and a half inches wide. Th o fivo cells contain each a ro w of from five to ten seeds imhedded in a pink, acid pulp the cocoa bean. Th o tree is indigenous to Mexico , hut it can he cultivated within tho twenty-ft fth parall«tl.» o£ latitude, and thrives at any elevation under 12000 feet, but it requires a rich soil, a warm , humid atmosphere, and protection from cold winds- Th o trees are propagated from heeds in a nursery until they attain a height o f from four­ teen rnches to eighteen inches, whe n they are transplanted and <-Arefully slieltered by planting other trees about them. The y commence to bear about the fifth year, but do not attain matur­ ity until tho eighth, and conti uuo yieldin g fruit for nearly half a century* Ther o is no special tim e for harvesting tho crop as the trees continue bearing ;dl the time, flow* rs and fruit in all stages being curiously borne on tho same tree. Hut in Vcno/ueJa the principal gatherings are in .Juno and December. (''horolate is generally made from the finer varieties of cocoa seeds, and was a favorite beverag e in ('entr;tl Americ a long before <~*olumbus discovered tho Ne w World. A s at present prepared chocolate is made in cakes, whil e cocoa is usually sold in powder. flakes, or nibs.
