FORFAR : 
PRINTED & PUBLISHED BY W. SHEPHERD, CASTLE ST. 

1885. 



PREFACE. 



From the favourable reception accorded last year to the first issue 
of the Forfar Directory, the Publisher has every confidence in 
issuing this, the second number. 

It contains a full List of the Voters in the Burgh, with their 
addresses and occupations ; a Directory of Trades and 
Professions ; also, particulars of the Public Boards, Associ- 
ations, Societies, Clubs, &c., in Town — information regarding 
which, having been received from Secretaries, &c., may be relied 
on as accurate. In addition to these, there is added a List of 
Farmers, &c., in the neighbouring Parishes. 

The Almanac for 1886, which accompanies it, will be found 
useful for general information. 

Altogether, it is the most complete and useful Directory for 
Forfar ever published, and will prove of very great convenience 
all the year round. 

The Publisher takes this opportunity of thanking the Advertisers 
who have made use of it for their Announcements, and also 
Secretaries and all others who have so readily given information. 

39 Castle Street, 

Forfar, Dec, 1885.

ACUEIOUS rock, situated at the Quiraing in the north-east of Skye. It is of the 
same structure as the Old Man of Storr and the Stacks of Duncansbayhead, and 
stands amidst a lot of high rocks of all sizes and shapes, as if Nature had thrown all her 
" odd bits " Into a corner. The Quiraing mountain is 1,774 feet in height, sloping by a 
steep declivity towards the west, but presenting north-eastwards a face of rugged preci- 
pices, varied by huge columns of basalt and many fragments of fluted rock. In other 
parts large concave sections, ribbed by fissures, form outlets in wet weather for numerous 
little streams. The Quiraing proper is a green platform, covered with turf, 1,500 feet 
high, 300 feet long, and 180 feet broad ; the Needle itself being 120 feet high. The district 
round about is interesting in connection with the adventures of Charles the Pretender, 
and also of Flora Macdonald. Her monument is at Kilmuir, a few miles to the north- 
west. She died in 1790, and there were about 3,000 mourners at her funeral. On the 
east of the Quiraing is Loch StaflBn, so called from the formation of the rocks being 
similar to the rocks at Staffa and at the Giant's Causeway, although they are not by any 
means so well defined. The salmon and lobster fishings all round this coast are very 
profitable, a large part of the "catch" being sent to the London markets via Strome 
Ferry and Inverness.

KITCHEN GARDENER'S CALENDAR. 

January. — This is the month for preparing early vegetables, 
whether by the hot-bed or in the natural ground. If you have 
any lettuce plants in fi'ames, let them, whenever the weather 
is fine, enjoy the open air, and even in wet weather do not 
exclude the air altogether ; but should the frost be rigorous, 
let them be closely covered up. If the weather be open, 
asparagus, radishes, carrots, spinage, parsley, &c., for early 
use may be put in preparation this month. The soil must be 
prepared for Tarious crops, such as peas and beans ; some 
kinds of the former may be sown in a favourable state of the 
weather. 

H0liday$ are marked thiu*.

SCIENTIFIC ITEMS. 

The printed records of 
inventions, which may be 
consulted in the Patent 
Office Library and in the 
other chief libraries, be- 
gin with the year 1617. 
The first record of a 
patent being granted 
dates from Edward III., 
who gave to two alder- 
men and their assigns 
the patent privilege of 
the sole making of the 
philoscpher's stone. 

To the list of novel 
inventions, commencing 
with wooden nutmegs, 
must now be added paper 
cigars, large quantities 
of which have been im- 
ported into the Austra- 
lian colonies. A corre- 
spondent describes these 
as being such an exact 
imitation of the tobacco 
leaf, and so well fla- 
voured, that it takes 
a magnifying glass to 
detect the deception. 
He adds, too, that they 
burn well and hold their 
white ash firmly. 

A New York firm has 
commenced putting up 
writing-ink in paper- 
pulp bottles. 

This year we have 
seen the completion of 
one of the greatest sub- 
marine engineering feats 
ever attempted in Great 
Britain. The Severn tun- 
nel was begun 16 years 
a^'o by the Great Western 
Railway, and has cost 
more than a million of 
money. The tunnel has 
been twice flooded by 
boring into springs of 
water. The river is 2J 
miles broad at the tun- 
nel, which, however, is 
about 4 miles in length, 
to allow for the gradient 
on both sides, the top 
of the tunnel being 50 
feet below the deepest 
part of the tunnel. 

The clever process by 
which original photo- 
graphs are reproduced in 
this almanac is one of 
the most wonderful 
things in the history 
of printing — the ph-ito- 
graphs themselves being 
left intact and the effect 
being equal to copper- 
plate printing.

February. — Dig and trench vacant ground, and prepare 
especially such ground as may be required for early crops. 
Choose southwardly exposed or sheltered situations for peas, 
beans, &c., and continue to sow them in favourable weather. 
Cut early kidney potatoes for seed, and start their growth by 
placing them in hot-beds. Care must be taken properly to 
protect and train cucumbers and melons. Asparagus to be 
forced. Mushroom beds may be formed, and the old ones 
carefully defended. In the beginning, or at any time during 
this month, you may make a hot-bed for early kidney beans. 
Sow the different kinds of small salading, such as cresses, 
mustard, radish, and lettuce, once a week, if the weather be 
open. Cauliflower plants, in frames, should have the free air 
every mild day, by taking the glasses entirely off. Cauliflower 
seed may be sown. Early cabbage, if strong in growth, should 
now be transplanted. Late cabbage may be sown.

MUSIC AND PAINTING. 
The Birmingham 
musical festival is always 
the occasion of introduc- 
ing some new and first- 
class music. Since Men- 
delssohn's " Elijah " was 
produced there in 1846 
under the baton of the 
great composer himself, 
every triennial festival 
has been looked forward 
to by the musical world 
with much interest. 
Three years ago the 
"Redemption," by 
Gounod, was produced, 
and in 1885 the chef 
d'ouvre was ' ' Mors et 
Vita," by the same com- 
poser. 

A sad swindle has 
lately come to light. It 
seems that some smart 
artist painted a copy of 
Mrs. Butler's "Roll Call" 
with wonderful ingenu- 
ity and sold it to a gen- 
tleman. It was taken 
out to Australia, and 
our cousins went into 
ecstasies about it, some 
critics stating that they 
had seen it in London 
on its first appearance. 
The upshot was that it 
created quite a furore, 
and the government 
there offered to buy it 
for the National Gallery 
of New South Wales. 
All the time the real 
picture was hanging in 
Windsor Castle, where it 
is most probably at the 
present moment. 

The total number of 
persons who were taught 
di-awing, painting, and 
modelling through the 
agency ©f the Science 
and Art Department was 
in 1882 upwards of 
900,000; in 1883, 843,000; 
in 1884, about 852,000. 
Drawing was taught in 
1884 to between 700,000 
to 800,000 children and 
pupil teachers in elemen- 
tary schools, and above 
500,000 children and 
8,363 pupil teachers were 
examined. 

The Glasgow Select 
Choir has lost a very 
popular leader by the 
death of Mr. James 
Allan. When the Choir 
went periodically to Lon- 
don they were well re- 
ceived, the houses being 
always crowded.

REVISED VERSION. 

There are some statis- 
tics in connection with 
the publication of the 
Revised version of the 
Bible which possess 
interest. The new ver- 
sion is the joint property 
of the Universities of 
Oxford and Cambridge, 
and the work of printing 
and publication has pro- 
ceeded at the respective 
establishments simul- 
taneously. For that 
portion of the work 
done by the Oxford 
university it is officially 
stated that "at the 
Wolvercote Mill, near 
Oxford, 375 tons of rag 
have been consumed in 
making 250 tons of paper 
for this issue of the 
Revised version. This 
amount would cover 2J 
square miles, and go 
round the world in a 
strip of six inches wide, 
or if the pages were laid 
open one after another, 
the sheets piled in reams 
would make a column 
ten times the height of 
St. Paul's, or folded into 
books before binding at 
least 100 times that 
height. The copies which 
are being prepared by the 
Oxford University Press 
alone would, if piled flat 
one upon another, make 
a column more than 14 
miles high, and if piled 
end on end they would 
reach 74 miles high. It 
is hardly possible to give 
an idea of the number of 
skins required for bind- 
ing, but it is calculated 
that 1,560 goat skins 
have been used in bind- 
ing the copies presented 
to the American Com- 
mittee of Revision. A 
special Act of Congress 
has been passed to aidmit 
these copies into the 
United States free of 
duty. Although, owing 
to the heavy expense 
incurred by the two uni- 
versities in producing the 
Revised version, it is not 
likely to supersede the 
present Authorised ver- 
sion on account of cheap- 
ness, it is interesting 
to know that it is pub- 
lished at moderate prices.

April.— Let the cucumber and melon hot-beds, which were 
made a month or two ago, be examined, in case they should 
not have attained the proper heat. Sow these plants early in 
the month ; transplant lettuces ; thin radishes ; sow round 
radishes and spinage ; plant out full crops of cabbages and 
savoys; still sow onions and leeks. Sow spinage for a succession 
crop in May and June; it will yet succeed. Where a constant 
supply of the plant is required, they ought to be sown once a 
fortnight, as they soon run into seed. Beet, if omitted 
previously, may still be sown. Plant slips and cuttings of 
kitchen herbs, but take care not to give too much water to 
thyme. Finish the grafting of all trees this month. Plant 
strawberries in edgings ; add climbing plants of all kinds. 
Beein the hoe cultinre of killing weeds wherever practicable.

LITERARY JOTTING Ss 

One of the most suc- 
cessful books issued in 
1885 is the Life of Frank 
Buckland, -which has 
reached a fifth edition 
within three months of 
its first appearance. 

A curious and un- 
precedented case has 
occurred involving the 
question whether lec- 
tures can be published 
without the consent of 
the lecturer. Mr. Wm. S. 
Sime, bookseller, Glas- 
gow, published some 
lectures of Professor 
Edward Caird under the 
title "An Aid to the 
Study of Moral Philo- 
fophy." In the first 
division of the Court of 
Session 5 out of 9 were 
in favour of Caird ; but 
the case had not been 
decided when we went 
to press. 

Goethe received from 
his publishers between 
1795 till his death in 
1832 over £20,000, and 
from 1832 till 1865 aboun 
£23,000 have been paid to 
his heirs. These are 
small sums compared 
with what some English 
writers earn. 

General G or d en's Diary 
will be considered one 
of the most interesting 
books of the year ; also 
the Life of General 
Grant, which was nearly 
ready some months be- 
fore he died. 

One of the most nota- 
ble recent events in 
the American publishing 
world was the issue of 
the Revised Bible on 
Thursday, May 2l8t. 
About midnight the 
agents of the University 
presses In New York, 
Thomas Nelson & Sons 
and J. B. Lippincott & 
Co., began the packing, 
so as to be ready to serve 
customers at five o'clock 
in the morning. Harper 
Brothers also received 
their four-volume edition 
at midnight, and were 
ready at daybreak to 
ship and deliver. The 
Eniflish edition was 
delivered two days in 
advance of the American, 
in order to secure copy- 
right, the English law 
requiring the publication 
first in Great Britain.

May. — Plant out cucumbers under hand-glasses. Plant now 
a full crop of kidney beans to succeed those of last month ; 
and in wet days put in the principal crop of runners. 
Asparagus ought to be fit this month to be cut for use. In 
moist weather transplant such lettuces as were sown the two 
former months. Keep clean the beds of turnips, carrots, 
parsnips, onions, <fec., and thin such as require it. Transplant 
spring sown cabbage and savoys for autumn use, also red 
cabbage. Plant out towards the middle or end of this month 
the gourds and pumpkins sown in April. Plant out tomatoes 
or love apples. Carrot seed may still be sown in succession ; 
such as are •own in this month will be very acceptable.

BEHIND THE SCENES. 

Miss Mary Anderson, 
whose representations of 
Shakespeare's characters 
is so much admired, has 
appeared in the bhake- 
speare Memorial Theatre. 
Stratford - on - Avon, in 
the character of Rosa- 
lind. 

The copyright of the 
" Bohemian Girl," by 
Balfe, expired in the 
autumn of 18S5, and this 
will have the effect of 
allowing it to be sung 
everywhere without pay- 
ment of royalties. It is 
Balfe's masterpiece, and 
is full of striking airs 
and beautiful melody. 

The death of an actor 
called Henry Jackson or 
Jacobson, a Jew, has 
been the cause of a good 
deal of talk on the sub- 
ject of Jewish actors and 
acting, and theatres 
generally. It may be 
interesting to note that 
the first record of a 
theatre was the pagan 
one introduced by King 
Herod. Josephus telk 
of a "mimologos," or 
actor of plays — much 
beloved by Nero, but a 
Jew by birth. In the 
time of Marcus Aureliua 
there was a popular 
Jewish actress called 
Faustina. J ews figure as 
actors all through the 
middle ages, and in the 
present century some of 
the leading actors and 
actresses have been of 
J ewish origin. The elder 
Booth, Lucius Junius 
Brutus ; Mesdamea 
Rachel, Bernhardt, and 
Mrs. Keeley, the actress; 
Henry Russell, the com- 
poser ; Braham, the 
singer; and David James, 
the well-known London 
manager, are all children 
of Israel. 

It is said that Mr. J. 
L. Toole received from a 
collector of autographs a 
book that he might enter 
his name on the actors' 
page ; but Mr. Toole, 
with a desire for good 
company, entered it on 
the page for miniisters, 
and wrote beneath it. In 
the words of Paul Pry — 
"1 hope I don't intrude."

June. — Supply weU the cucumbers in frames with fresh air 
and water. Transplant celery into trenches, to remain to 
blanch. Sow a full crop of turnips for autumn use ; trans- 
plant leeks ; keep up the crops of peas and beans ; plant 
cabbages for use in autumn and winter ; gather mint and 
other aromatic herbs for drying towards the end of the month. 
Transplant leeks, which in general will be of a proper size for 
this purpose, towards the middle or end of this month. Let 
a quantity of the brocoli plants, which were raised in March 
or April, be planted, finally to remain in rows two feet 
asunder. Transplant endive. Thin young wall fruit when 
required. Plant out seedling flowers, and cuttings of wall 
flowers, carnations, &C. Top peas and beans to assist the 

filling of the pods.

SHIPS AND SHIPPING. 

The fastest British 
cruiser is the Mercury. 
She is the swiftest full- 
size ship afloat — attain- 
ing an averar;e speed of 
18^ knots. She is 300 
feet in length and 46 feet 
in breadth with a draiight 
of 22 feet, and is one of 
the new type of un- 
armoured cruisers speci- 
ally built for high speed. 
Built of steel, she carries 
10 64 puunders, costs 
about £2U0, 000, and is one 
of the most expensive 
vessels afloat in propor- 
tion to her tcnnage. 

The most powerful gun 
in the world is the 110 
ton Elswick breechloader 
on board H.M.S. Benboic. 
This gun is more power- 
ful than Krupp's 119 ton 
gun, the energy at the 
muzzle being 61,200 foot 
tons as against 46,061 
foot tons. This gun is 
43 feet 6 inches long, 
calibre 16-75 inches, and 
fires a charge of 900 lb., 
and a projectile weighing 
1,800 lbs., with a muzzle 
velocity of 2,020 feet per 
second. 

It seems probable that 
in a few years people will 
have less to fear from 
sea-sickness caused by 
the rolling of ships. 
Messrs. R. S. Froude & 
P. Walls conducted some 
experiments on board 
H.M.S. Inflexible, Edin- 
burgh, to obviate its 
excessive rolling. These 
consisted in fitting in 
water tanks going all the 
way across filled with 
water, and by their 
shape when the vessel 
had recovered from a 
roll the water rolled 
more slowly than the 
vessel and thus equalized 
the motion. Mr. Walls 
read a paper lately before 
the Institute of Naval 
Architects who criticised 
it very favourably. 

International Yacht 
Race. — The question of 
superiority between 
British ' ' racing wedges" 
and American "skim- 
ming dishes," as the two 
styles of yachts are 
called, has been settled 
meantime by the result 
of this race, the Puritan 
of Boston, U.S., having 
beat Sir Richard Sutton's 
Genesta twice riuming.

July.— Prepare ground for the autumn and winter crops. 

Plant your principal crops of savoys and winter cabbages. 

Transplant brocoli, and sow seed for a late spring crop. Plant 

late crops of kidney beans. Sow onions to stand the winter, 

but this not before the end of the month. About the middle 

of the mouth you may sow some carrots, which will come into 

use at Michaelmas, and continue good till the spring ; the 

same remarks apply to turnips. Thin, transplant, and sow 

lettuces, winter spinage, and several kinds of radishes, 

particularly the turnip rooted. As celery is a water plant, and 

requires to grow quick, it should be kept alive by wet 

Lift aU winter onions that are full grown, and prepare 

mushroom spawn.

SPORTS ON LAND and 

SEA. 

Yachting.— Is it allow- 
able to enter here, under 
the term yachtina; and 
sports, an account of a 
voyage of the Cunard 
steamer Etruria? This 
vessel has proved herself 
to be the fastest ocean 
steamer. The passengers 
who ate their Sunday's 
luncheon at Queenstown 
on Sunday, the 16th 
August, dined in New 
York on the following 
Saturday night, the run 
being made from Queens- 
town to Sandy Hook in 
6 days, 1 hour, and 9 
minutes, or, taking it in 
corrected time, 6 days, 
5 hours, and 31 minutes 
— a vessel going with the 
sun, that is to the west, 
having a longer day than 
the other way. The next 
best run on record is that 
of the Oregon, which was 
done in 6 days, 10 hours, 
10 minutes, corrected 
time. The distance is 
about 2,800 sea miles, 
and the average rate was 
ab >ut 19 knots per hour. 

The most successful 
yachts of the year are 
the Irex, Marjorie, Tara, 
Marguerite, and Dons. 

Sculling.— The fastest 
3 miles on record has 
been rowed by Gaudaur 
at Pittsburgh in 19 min- 
utes, 32 seconds. 

R UNNiNQ . -Ti3 e shortest 
time on record in which 
a mile has been run by 
a professional is 4 min- 
utes 16 l-5th seconds, 
by Ciimmings of Paisley 
in 1881, and by an 
amateur 4 minutes 
18 2-5th seconds, by W. 
G. George in 1884. These 
two champions met at 
Lillicbridge on 31st Aug. , 
1885, when George won 
in 4 minutes 20 l-5th 
seconds, the ground 
being wet. Cummings 
won the 4 mile race on 
12th Sept. in 18 minutes 
46 seconds. 

Myers has run a J of a 
mile in 49 2-5th seconds, 
the best on record over 
a grass course. 

Monarch, the famous 
champion bull-dog, for 
which £400 has been 
refused, has just died. 
He was the best dog of 
the breed since Crib, and 
took many prizes.

August. — Sow early and other cabbage seed to produce 
plants for the service of next summer ; sow also red cabbage, 
and Dutch and cabbage lettuces on warm borders, for winter 
use ; finish planting savoys ; continue to sow onions, carrots, 
radishes, and cauliflowers ; transplant celery into the trenches 
for blanching ; continue to sow in succession several sorts of 
small salad seeds, such as mustard and cresses. If your 
cucumbers in the open ground stunt, curl, or canker, lay 
little bits of new tile under them. Gather herbs for distilla- 
tion, such as the mints, penny-royal, &c. Plant lavender, 
rosemary, sage, hyssop, and other aromatic herbs. Take 
particular care now of ripening melons, and in dry weather 
give the advancing crops water;

CX)MMERCB. 

On 1st July, 1885, a 
parcel postage to or from 
India was introduced, 
whereby parcels not ex- 
ceeding 7 lbs, in weiglit 
could be forwarded to or 
from Gibmltar, Egypt, 
Aden, India, and British 
Burmah. The rate to 
Gibraltar is bd. per 1 lb., 
and 6d. per lb. there- 
after. To Egypt Is. 3d. 
per 2 lb., and 7Jd per 
lb. thereafter. To Aden, 
India, etc.. Is. per lb. 
This is a very great 
boon, and will no doubt 
be largely taken advan- 
tage of in sendiug out 
packages of samples, etc. 

The Japanese Post 
Office, which is ten years 
old, carried 95,000,000 
letters and transmitted 
3,000,000 telegrams last 
year. 

Great Britain possesses 
colonies equal to 65 
square miles in propor- 
tion to 1 mile of mother 
country. Holland isnext 
with 54 miles, Portugal 
with 20, Denmark with 
6, France with barely 2. 
The colonies held by 
Great Britain exceed the 
H u 8 8 i a n Empire by 
2,000,000 square miles, 
and extend over nearly 
one-sixth of the land 
area of the globe. 

The Free Congo State, 
with Mr. H. M. Stanley 
as Governor, under the 
King of the Belgians, 
is another sign that 
Africa is being surely 
if slowly opened up. No 
one can say what good 
may come if humane 
nations take the respon- 
sibility of governing this 
vast region. 

Among evidences of 
increasing prosperity in 
India may be noted the 
growth of the Excise 
returns from £3,609,000 
in 1882-3 to £4,070,000 
(estimated) in 1885-6, 
and of the Post- Office 
revenue during tbe same 
period from £978,000 to 
£1,102,000. The grcss 
earnings of the State 
railways have increased 
from £2,646,000 to 
£3,842,000. The East 
Indian Railway during 
the same period has 
exhibited some remark- 
able fiuctuationa.

September. — This is the season for providing mushroom 
spawn, and dung for the mushroom beds. The spawn is found 
chiefly in diy old rotten dunghills ; it is a white fibrous 
substance spreading in the dung. The spawn must be kept 
from wet. Plant lettuces in frames for winter use; transplant 
cauliflowers. The young cabbage plants which were sown 
the first or second week of August for an early crop next 
summer and autumn should be planted into nursery beds. 
Continue to plant celery in trenches, and earth up the plants 
as they advance. Continue to gather seeds. Cardoons, which 
will now have made considerable progress, must be earthed 
up for blanching, their leaves being previously tied up care- 
fully and regularly. Cover asparagus with manure. Plant 
cuttings of gooseberries, currants, raspberries, and straw- 
berries. Bemove hardy everg^reeus, shrubs, dec. 

17 



HOME INDUSTRIES. 
Some experiments have 
been made with seeds of 
wheat to see how long 
they lived. For example, 
out uf 100 grains of wheat 
kept one year, 96 grew ; 
out of 100 kept two years, 
84 grew; three years, 60 
grew ; four years, 43 
grew; six years, only 
6 grew. Those kept 
seven, eight, and ten 
years, all died. The same 
results were obtained 
from rye. Oats and 
barley, however, kept 
eight years without any 
dying, but the plants 
produced were of feeble 
growth. 

From the statistics 
issued by the Home 
OflBce in July, 1885, we 
find that the output of 
coal during 1884 is less 
than it has been since 
1878. In 1883 it was 163 
million tons, and in 1884, 
160 millions. The output 
of ii'on during 1884 is less 
than it has been since 
1879; in 1883 it was 17 
million tons, and in 1884, 
16 millions. The jrield 
of tin is slightly greater 
in quantity, Dut of copper 
and lead very much less. 
It is satisfactory to know 
that there have been 
fewer accidents in coal- 
pits than in any former 
year since ofiBcial reports 
were published. 

In these days of foreign 
competition it is impor- 
tant that every farmer 
should experiment on his 
land with the view of 
finding out not only 
what kinds of seeds pro- 
duce the best result, 
but also what particular 
variety of each seed is 
best. It has been found, 
for instance, that in the 
case of wheat sown on 
two fields similarly situ- 
ated in all respects and 
conditions, one variety 
yielded at the rate of 60 
bushels of 63 lbs., and 
the other variety 40 
bushels of 64 lbs. In 
another case oats were 
sown in two fields under 
similar conditions. In 
the field one was bad 
or unsuitable seed , which 
yielded only 22 bushels 
worth about 1/6 each, 
and In the other was 
good seed, which yielded 
23 bushels worth 3/ each.

October.— The latter end of this month, you may plant 
beans for an early crop the succeeding summer. The Mazagan 
bean will stand the winter best. Transplant lettuces for the 
winter service. Towards the end of this month plant some 
of the strongest cabbages in the place where they are to 
remain for early use next summer. Plant out eai-ly in this 
month any aromatic plants wanted, such as thyme, hyssop, 
sage, &c. Earth up celery on dry days. Clean water spinage. 
Collect and preserve flower seeds, and transplant rooted 
cuttings and layers. Dress wall trees and standards; and 
remove green house plants to their winter shelter.

LAWS AND POLITICS. 

Prince Bismarck, it 
may not be generally 
known, is a papermaker, 
producing principally 
grey and brown wrap- 
ping paper, and clears 
£10,000 a year out of 
extensive paper mills 
which he works himself. 
His entire income is 
about £18,000 a year, of 
which his oflScial salary 
forms but a small por- 
tion. It consists only 
of £2,700 per annum 
with allowances ; his 
stipend as Chancellor ; 
and the pension of £450 
from a former office. 
Paper mills are thus 
shown to be more profit- 
able than politics. 



The Gladstone Govern- 
ment was defeated on 
the Budget, and the 
Conservatives, under the 
Marquis of Salisbury, 
agreed to carry on the 
government of the 
country till the general 
election in November. 
Notwithstanding the 
wonderful statesmanlike 
qualities of the ' ' Grand 
Old Man " it seems as if 
fate had been working 
against him for the last 
year or two. Nothing 
seemed to go right ; 
everything that he 
touched seenaed destined 
to failure. This is of 
course the ebb and flow 
of the tide. Every 
Government must give 
in to the succeeding one, 
or there would be no 
advancement made. 
Every true Liberal and 
Conservative must feel 
that it is only fair that 
the other side should 
have its innings, and 
then see if his side can't 
beat it. 

Wars and rumours of 
wars have been filling 
the air for the last 
few months; first a 
threatened Anglo-Rus- 
sian war, and now, while 
we write, a possible 
rapture between Spain 
and Germany, the casus 
belli being the seizure of 
the island of Yap in the 
Pacific Ocean by the 
Germans.

November. — Get everything out of the land this month 
which is not Intended to stand during the winter. In the 
middle, or towards the end of this month, is a proper season 
to plant early beans, to succeed such as may have been planted 
in October. The same direction may be applied to peas. 
Brocoli may be laid down, and their heads pointed to the 
north, especially the high growing kinds. Where the aspara- 
gus beds were not cleaned and earthed during the last 
month, it must now be done. Artichokes should now receive 
their winter dressing. The beginning of this month you 
should take up carrots and other roots to be preserved in 
sand, be, for the use of the kitchen during the winter 
months. After the middle, or towards the latter end of this 
month, according to the state of the weather, will be the time 

to put fires in the hot-houses, particularly in the evenings.

WIT AND WISDOM. 

A paper pianoforte is 
the latest accomplish- 
ment. Everything is 
paper except the wires. 
But why not paper 
strings ? We have in our 
possession specimens of 
Japanese tissue paper of 
gossamer-like substance, 
and so tough that when 
twisted up into string it 
is as strong as catgut. 
If not a pianoforte, a 
paper banjo, strings and 
all, is by no means an 
impossibility. The tone 
of the before-mentioned 
pianoforte is reported as 
being peculiarly fine and 
creamy. [Should read 
superfine and cream- 
laidy . ] It is further said 
that the patentee is en- 
gaged on a church organ, 
every part — with one 
exception — of which, 
pipes and aU, is to be 
made of compressed 
paper. The exception is 
the stuff that fills the 
beUows, which is to be 
real wind. We strongly 
suspect that the bellows 
stiiffing is the most 
tangible thing about 
this invention. "The 
church quire is, of 
course," says the in- 
ventor, "to be made of 
paper ;" but the gratui- 
tous statement of so 
obvious a fact will, we 
are afraid, cause what 
has preceded it to be 
received with a certain 
amount of distrust. 

There is nothing on 
earth so mysteriously 
funny as a newspaper 
advertisement. The first 
and last object of an 
advertisement is to draw 
custom, It is not, was 
not, and never will be 
designed for any other 
human purpose. So the 
merchant waits till the 
busy season comes, and 
his store is so full of 
customers he can't get 
his hat off, and then he 
rushes to the newspapers 
and puts in his adver- 
tisement. Give them 
your advertisement right 
between the eyes in the 
duU season, and you will 
wax rich and own a fast 
horse, and perhaps be 
able to smoke a good 
cigar once or twice a 
year.

DiCEMBER. — Remove decayed leaves from the cauliflower 
plants, and let the plants have free air daring the day. If 
the weather be dry and open, radishes and carrots, for an early 
crop, may be sown. Keep up the succession of peas ; the kind 
called hotspur is one of the best for this season. Plant beans 
now, if you have not planted them earlier. Attend carefully 
to have the mushroom beds defended from frost and wet. 
Take advantage of the first day, if not frosty, to earth up 
such of the celery as may be in a fit state for it; and see that 
the plants are pretty dry before you begin earthing. Care- 
fully examine fruit which has been laid up in the house.

EVENTS OF THE YEAR. 

The Internatioral In- 
ventions Exhibition, 
popularly called the In- 
ventories, following in 
the wake of the Fisberies 
and Heal theries, has been 
a great success. The 
total number of visitors 
since the opcnins:,' on 4th 
May till 25th July has 
been 1,718,419. 

The death of theMahdi 
on 21st June has closed 
the career of one who 
has caused us a great 
deal of trouble and ex- 
pense, and lost to us the 
lives of some of our best 
officers and men. We 
cannot help wishing 
that Allah h.td made au 
exception in him, and 
that the proverb, "Whom 
the godslove die young," 
had come true when he 
was an innocent suck- 
linsr. 

The death of General 
Gordon is one of the 
results of this man's 
holy madness. "Chinese 
Gordon " was one of the 
best known names either 
at home or abroad ; and 
his journals and diary, 
just published, will be 
read with great interest. 

The marriage of 
Princess Beatiico has 
completed the list of 
Royal marriages. Every- 
one, we are sure, admires 
Her Royal Highness for 
her own amiable quali- 
ties and devotediiess to 
her widowed mother ; 
while the fact that she 
is an authoress and a 
painter proves that she 
has made good use of her 
leisure hours. Long life 
to her. 

The death of ex-Presi- 
dent Ulysses S. Grant 
removes from us one of 
the most popular and 
distinguished men that 
America ever produced. 
He was one of the most 
silent of men and a great 
smoker, his silence bt-mg 
proverbial. It is related 
that after a dep'itHtion 
bad expended upon him 
all their oratory, he took 
his cigar out of his 
mouth, and throwing it 
away, exclaimed, 
" That's a very bad 
cigar, leave your case 
with me." That closed 
the interview.

The Tides are produced by the attraction of the sun and moon, principally ^^ ^ 
that of the latter object. The cohesion of fluids being much less than that of o » 
solid bodies, they more easily yield to the power of gravity; in consequence g ^ 
of which, the waters immediately below the moon are drawn up in a protu- !^ g 
berance, producing a full tide, or High Water, at the spot where it happens. ^- 

The mean duration of the ebb and flow is about 12h. 25m., that is, half the P 
lunar day of 24h. 50m., the period elapsing between successive returns of the o 
moon to the same point of the meridian. Thus the sea, in every place, under- J"" 
goes a flux and reflux as often as the moon passes the meridian, whether 
superior or inferior of the place ; that is to say, twice in 24h. 50m.

GLASGOW UNIVERSITY. 

THE University of Glasgow is situated on the bank of the Kelvin in the west end of 
the City. The foundation was laid by the Prince and Princess of Wales in October, 
1868, and the last part built — the Bute HaU — has only recently been completed. The 
architect was Sir G. Gilbert Scott, and the general style is early English. The central 
tower will be over 300 feet in height when finished, and the entire structure, standing 
on a hill, has a most handsome and commanding appearance. The entrance doorway of 
the Old College in High Street, bought up by the North British Railway Company, has 
been presented to the Senate by a citizen, and is about to be erected at one of the 
entrances to the grounds. 

DUNROBIN CASTLE. 

DUNROBIN CASTLE, the residence of the Duke of Sutherland, is situated near 
Golspie, on the Dornoch Frith. The original Castle was built about a.d. 1097. By 
recent additions the buildinor now presents a solid mass of masonry about 100 feet 
square by about 80 feet in height. There are three main storeys besides the basement 
and attics connected by a lower range of buildings with the old structure. The geneial 
style is that of a French chateau or German schloss, and is built of white freestone got 
on the Duke's property. The railway to Wick and Thurso passes the back of the Castle, 
where there is a private railway station.

GLASGOW CATHEDRAL. 



ri^iHE Cathedral of Glasgow, founded in 1123, is situated in the north-cijxst of the city. 
JL It is dedicated to St. Kentigern, or St. Mungo as he is usually called, the patron 
saint of Glasgow. Tradition relates that he came from Orkney in the year 539 to preach 
the Gospel to the heathen living along the banks of the Clyde. After preaching there 
some years he was expelled to Wales, where he founded the See of St. Asaph. A few 
years afterwards he returned, and built a church about the year 560 on the spot on which 
the Cathedral now stands. He died in 601, and his tomb is still to be seen in the crypt, 
which is unsurpassed by any similar building in Europe. David I. of Scotland endowed 
the Cathedral. The armorial bearings of Glasgow — being a tree, a bell, a bird, and a fish 
with a ring in its mouth— represent miracles said to have been wrought by St. Mungo. 
The bishops succeeding St. Mungo numbered fc.bout thirty, among whom the chief names 
are Joceline, who laid the foundation of the present church ; Bondington, who finished 
it ; Robert Wischard, who crowned King Robert the Bruce ; William Rae, who built the 
old Stockwell Bridge ; Cameron, the magnificent prelate ; William Turnbull, the founder 
of the Unive sity of Glasgow ; Blackader, who extended and beautified the Cathedral ; 
and Beaton, nephew of the bishop of the same name. These were the names of some 
of the Roman Catholic prelates who had held stately rule in these hallowed courts since 
the days of St. Mungo. During Beaton's time the Reformation took place, and he retired 
to France, taking with him the whole treasures and costly ornaments, chalices, and 
images of gold and silver belonging to the Cathedral, and also the valuable archives of 
the See from the earliest period till his own time. These were deposited partly in the 
Scots' College of Paris, and partly in the monastery of the Carthusians there. The 
reformers destroyed all the holy vessels and whatever they could lay hands on. A line of 
fifteen Protestant Archbishops held the See at intervals during the alternate rule of 
Episcoi)acy and Presbyterianism, The last one was John Paterson, and the Revolution 
of 1688 took place a year after hi3 appointment. Since then Presbyterianism has held 
sway ; and in the present day any one wanting to hear a "high Presbyterian service" 
need only go to the Cathedral on a forenoon. To the late Sir Andrew Orr, when Lord 
Provost of Glasgow, the citi^iens are indeLted for the first practical steps which led to the 
noble scheme for filling the windows with painted glass. Noblemen and gentlemen in 
the neighbourhood responded liberally, and the windows are now nearly all completed. 
The late Mr. Charles Heath Wilson selected the subjects, and the chevalier, M. Ainmiller, 
of the Royal Establishment of Glass Painting at Munich, was entrusted with the execu- 
tion of them, onli' the best artists being employed. There is a most interesting book on 
the history of the Cathedral and See of Glasgow, and catalogue of the painted glass win- 
dows, published by Francis Orr £i Sons, Glasgow.

GENERAL GORDON. 

THE death of General Gordon was accompanied by every circumstance that could make 
the event most distressing and painful for his relations, his friends, and his coun- 
trymen. Only a few weeks before the details of his magnificent defence of Khar- 
tum were summed up and recorded, and on the very same day, as it happened, Sir 
Herbert Stewart struck on the field of Abu Klea what seemed the first blow towards 
effecting his deliverance. At the very moment we were beginning to flatter ourselves 
that all anxiety might be laid aside, and that the doubts of many weary months of delay 
and uncertainty could be safely banished. General Gordon was placed by the treachery of 
some of his followers in the hands of the enemy whom he had so long and so valiantly 
defied. Even then the hope was cherished that although Khartoum had fallen, its heroic 
defender might have been spared ; but a harsh fate decreed otherwise. Charles George 
Gordon was bom on the 28th of January, 1833, at Woolwich, in the very cradle of that 
branch of the service in which he was destined to pass a life of more than usual dis- 
tmction, even if his own proper career as an English officer be alone taken into considera- 
tion. He was the fourth son of an artillery officer, Hem-y William Gordon, who attained 
the rank of Lieutenant-General, and the associations of his youth, as well as the tradition 
of his family, proud, and rightly so, of its connection with the great Highland house of 
the same name, left him no choice save to adopt the profession of arms. When he was 
little more than fifteen he was entered at the Royal Military Academv at Woolwich 
Whether his earlier training had been deficient, or that he did not take kindly to tlie 
course of cramming even then necessary to gain admission into the ranks of the seniur 
arm of the service, the fact remains that he did not at first achieve any great distinction 
in his studies, and on one occasion he received the rebuke, " that he would never make 
an officer." Despite all unfavourable prognostications, he passed his examinations suc- 
cessfully, and obtained the much-coveted distinction of a commission in the Royal Engin- 
eers. At the end of 1854, when it was perceived that the Allied Forces would be detained 
before Sebastopol during the winter, he was ordered to proceed with some huts to the 
Crimea ; but by a piece of good luck he obtained permission to travel overland to Mar- 
seilles, while the huts were sent round by sea in a collier. On his arrival in January, 
1855, he was at once placed under the officer in command of a portion of the trenches, 
and durmg the remaining nine months of the siege he took a prominent part in the 
engineerino operations in front of the Russian stronghold. The close of the Crimean war 
did not bring Gordon's connection with the Russians to an end. In 1858 he was sent 
as special commissioner to the Caucasus to arrange certain points in connection with the 
Armenian frontier from the Russian side. On this occasion he ascended one of the 
peaks of Mount Ararat ; and it may be interesting to state that while the impression 
he formed of the Russians at a distance, from their defence of Sebastopol, was most 
favourable to them in their character of soldiers, his opinion was very much modified, 
if not completely altered, on closer contact. The most striking trait in Gordon's character 
at this time was the absence of the religious zeal which at a later period made it so 
pronounced and peculiarly marked. After his return from Armenia, Gordon was 
stationed at Chatham for a short period, but in the summer of 1860 he proceeded to 
China, where an Anglo-Fi-ench expedition was carrying on operations to compel the 
Chinese to ratify the treaty concluded by Lord Elgin in the previous year, and also to exact 
reparation for the attack on Admiral Hope's squadron by the garrison of the Taku Forts. 
The siege and capture of Soochow was the greatest and most difficult of Gordon's exploits in 
China. As soon as he found himself firmly established on both the eastern and southern sides 
of the town. Major Gordon took steps to shut in the Taepings on the western side also. He 
accomplished this without much difficulty, and, after a desperate battle at Leeku, where 
au officer was killed at his side, he acquired a position to the north of the town as well. 
By the middleof October Major Gordon had, witha force of less than 15,000 men, succeeded 
in almost completely investing the Taeping army of 40,000 men which garrisoned 
Soochow. Gordon concentrated the whole of his force for attack, and, after a heavj^ 
cannonade, carried the Low Mun stockades at the head of his men. It is appropriate 
to state here that, although he had to organize the simplest details in person. 
Major Gordon was always the first man in these attacks. It was he who showed the way 
to victory as well as how to prepare for it ; but he never carried any weapon save a small 
cane, which the Chinese soon regarded with almost superstitious reverence and named 
his " wand of victory." The decisive action of the campaign was the capture of 
Chan9;chow, a town on the Grand Canal, half-way between Soochow and Nankin. It had 
been in possession of the Taepings for four years, and was held in the spring of 1864 by all 
the forces which they could muster outside of Nankin. Its capture brought the opera- 
tions of the Ever Victorious Army to a conclusion, and three weeks later that force was 
formally disbanded. 

In this short page it is impossible to give more than a brief sketch of hi s later life. Suffice 
it to say that after having been Consul at Galatz, Governor of Upper Egypt, Private 
Secretary to Lord Ripon, again back to China, on Engineer's duty at Mauritius, then in 
Basutoland, again off to Palestine, and elsewhere, he was asked by the Government to 
go out to Khartoum. His marvellous defence of that place for twelve months and his 
heroic death are all fresh in our minds. While at home he was much attached to his boys' 
mission at Gravesend, where his name has become a household word.

GENERAL GRANT. 

IN the person of Gteneral Grant, who died on the 23rd July, 1885, after a period of most 
painml suffering borne with stoical fortitude and patience, the Republic of the United 
States loses the most conspicuous historical figure of the momentous era of the Civil War. 
He united the claims of the successful commander in the field to those of the chief 
magistrate twice chosen by the voice of the nation to sit in the seat of George 
Washington. His campaigns had not the fascination of General Sherman's famous 
tnarch or of Stonewall Jackson's Cromwellian achievements, nor was his genius as a com- 
inander displayed with the dignified and noble serenity, undisturbed in defeat as in 
victory, which marked the career of his great antagonist, Lee. But in energy, in resolu- 
tion, and in iron tenacity of purpose Grant was never sui-passed, and those qualities he 
brought into exercise at more than one crisis when the Unionist cause was in danger 
of moral enfeeblement and political decomposition. Every step in Granfs rapi(i 
ascent to the supreme command of the armies of the Union was signalized by 
exploits which, apart from their military value, were of priceless importance in 
their influence on the spirit of the Northern people and on the temper of the soldiery. 
On the 27th of April, 1822, in the village of Point Pleasant, Ohio, Hiram Ulysses Gra;;t 
was born, being the eldest of the six children of Jesse R. and Hannah Simpson Grant. 
His father was a tanner by trade, and, the year after his son's birth, he removed to George- 
town, in the next county, where the lad's boyhood was passed. At 17 Hiram received 
a cadetship in the Military Academy through the Congressman of his district, who 
eiToneously registered him as Ulysses S. Grant, and so his name remains in history. 
Graduated from West Point in 1843 young Grant was attached as Brevet Second 
Lieutenant to the Fom-th Infantry, which two years later joined General Zachary 
Taylor's army in Texas. War with Mexico broke out in the spring of 1846, and Grant 
took part in the battles of Palo Alto, Molino del Rey, Chapultepec, and others. For 
gallantry at Molino del Rey he was brevetted First Lieutenant, and then Captain later on. 
in 1848 he married Miss Julia T. Dent of St. Louis. In 1854 he resigned from the army. 
Seven years nearly of civil life ensued, in which he was successively a farmer at Gravois, 
near St. Louis ; a real estate agent in St. Louis ; and finally an assistant of his father and 
brother in the leather business at Galena, Illinois. The outbreak of the civil war found 
him at Galena. Fort Sumter fell on the 14th df April, 1861. Ten days later Captain 
Grant was in Springfield, the State capital, oiiering lor service a company of his towns- 
men which he had drilled. Governor Yates, however found better employment for his 
military training as a mustering officer of volunteers, and a month later commissioned 
him Colonel of the Twenty-first Illinois Infantry, to date from June 17, 1861. 
Early in 1862 his cap'ure of Fort Henry and Fort Donelson threw almost the 
first bright gleam across the darkened prospects of the Federal cause in the West. 
In 1863, after giving proof of his fighting quality in a succession of obstinate and 
sanguinary battles, he struck a deadly blow at the hopes of the Confederacy by the 
capture of Vicksburg. In 1864 he had become so incontestably the foremost soldier on 
the side of the Union that he was called as much by the voice of the nation as by the 
choice of the President to the office of Commander-in-chief. On the 9th of April, 1865, 
just thirteen months after his accession to the supreme command. Grant received the 
surrender of tie remnant of Lee's army at Appomattox Court-house, and brought that 
war of giants to a triumphant close. The saviour of the Union and the victor of the 
Confederacy has passed awny a few months after the twentieth anniversary of his crown- 
ing achievement. His fame has in the interval undergone some stransre vicissitudes. If 
any military work had remained to be done. General Grant would probably have escaped 
the temptation of political life, for which he was not fitted either by nature or by habit. 
His election, however, to the Presidency in 1868 was mainly due to a spontaneous move- 
ment of popular gratitude, though it is to be remembered that some of the Southern 
States were still excluded from political rights, and that the white population of the 
South was for the most part disfranchised. General Grant's first administration was 
signalized by important diplomatic successes — the settlement of the Alabama dispute by 
the W^ashington Treaty and the Geneva Award, and of the San Juan boundary by the 
Berlin Arbitration. In 1872 he was elected President for a second term, defeating Mr. 
Greeley, whom the democrats had chosen as their champion. The honour of re-elt ction 
had only been conferred, since President Jackson's time, on Lincoln during the crisis of 
the civil war. In 1876 he retired from the Presidentship. During the eight years he 
had been in ofiice many great events had occurred, and many iiuprrtant laws had 
been passed. Grant then took a trip round the world, during which he was received 
everywhere with enthusiasm. During his absence his friends again nominated him for 
President ; but after a number of votes had been passed for him he retired in favour of 
Garfield. His later life was in strong: contrast to his earlier years. Great as he was on 
the battlefield and in the White House, as a private citizen he had not the same success. 
Involved in financial schemes which broke down his health, he was placed on the retired 
list, by which he received 13,500 doUars annually during life. On Christmas Eve, 1883, 
lie slipped on the ice and hurt his hip. Great pain followed, and he was confined to bed 
for some months. In June, 1884, the first sign of cancer in the tongue appeai-ed, being 
the result of his habit of continually smoking, and after about 13 months' Ulness, in spite 
of the best skill of the country, he succumbed to it, amid the regrets of all who knew him.

PRESIDENT GARFIELD. 

THE news of President Garfield's death, on September 19, 1881, plunged two countries 
into mourning ; for the feeling of sympathy with the victim and his family and of 
indignation at the crime was hardly less strong in England than in America. From that 
sad 2nd of July, the people of both countries watched in spirit, as it were, with the 
devoted wife by the bedside of the wounded man. The facts of the attack on the 
President and his illness are too fresh in the minds of our readers to need more than a 
brief recapitulation. It was on the 2nd of July, in the railway station at Washington, as 
he was about to start for the north, that the President, entering the waiting-room on the 
arm of his minister, Mr. Blaine, was shot twice by Charles Gmteau. He was at once 
conveyed back to the White House, where he lay dming the greater part of his illness, 
attended by the highest medical and surgical skill that his country could furnish, and 
watched tlu-oughout by his wife, who was svmimoned from Longbranch to his bedside. 
At first it was thought that the patient could not smrvive many hovu-s ; but he rallied so 
wonderfully that shortly there grew up a belief that by care and skill he might ultimately 
recover, though the illness must be in any case most tedious. Towards the end of August 
his medical attendants felt that his last chance of recovery depended on his removal from 
the malarious climate of Washington ; and on the 6th of that month he was carried by 
train to Longbranch, on the Atlantic coast, in New Jersey. The change, though it seemed to 
revive him at first, was of no avail, and he gradually sunk. The hoior of death was half- 
past 10 on Monday night, by American time; which is equivalent to half -past 3 on 
Tuesday morning by English time. James Abram Garfield was born about 54 
years ago, on November 19, 1831, in Orange Township, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, about 
18 miles from the city of Cleveland. Like the two Adamses, Fillmore, Pierce, Lincoln, 
Grant, and Hayes, he came from the Puritan stock of New England, which has given so 
many great men to the United States. His mother, who has lived to see her son first 
installed in the White House and then struck down in his prime by an assassin's hand, 
is a native of New Hampshire. His father was of Massachusetts stock, and traced his 
family back to 1635, when his ancestor, Edward Garfield, was one of the proprietors of 
Watertown, and came with Governor Winthrop to find freedom of conscience in New 
England. The President's father, Abram Garfield, settled in the Ohio forest a year before 
the birth of his youngest child, James Abram, bought a tract of wooded land, built a log- 
hut, and in three years had cleared a portion of the forest and begun the cultivation of 
the soil. When his com was in the ear the neighbouring woods caught fire, and 
threatened to destroy the ripening crop. Mr. Garfield, by great exertion, threw up a 
dyke of fresh earth between the com and the fire. His crop was saved, but the farmer, 
overheated and wearied, became chiUed while returning to his hut, and died of inflam- 
mation of the throat. The mother Was left with two sons and two daughters, and passed 
through extraordinary struggles and privations. She tilled the land with the oxen which 
lier husband had left her, made her children's clothing with her own hands, and clothed 
tiie children of a neighbotu-ing shoemaker, who, in return, made boots for her little ones. 
In the winter, when they could not labour in the fields, the children went to school. 
President Garfield told one of his biographers that from three to ten years of age he 
attended school daily ; but after ten he worked in the summer on the farm. He gained 
his first prize at the age of foxu-. Ic was a copy of the New Testament given to the best 
reader in the primary class. He eagerly read all his mother's scanty stock of books, 
learnt to recite by heart almost the whole of the " English Reader," borrowed "Robinson 
Crusoe." "Josephus," "Goodrich's History of the United States," and PoUok's solemn 
poem on the " Course of Time." But his favoiurite part of "Josephus" was " The Wars 
of the Jews," and he was never tired of poring over accounts of battles and adventures 
by sea and land, tales of bold buccaneers, of Algiers and the Spanish Main. Much later 
in life, when he bad become a distinguished member of Congress, he said : " I tell you I 
would rather now command a fleet in a great naval battle than be anything else on this 
earth. The sight of a ship still fills me with a strange fascination." He was strong in 
his boyhood and a great fighter, and was consumed by a burning passion to go to sea. 
At the age of 16 he could do a man's work, and contracted with his cousin to cut 100 
cords of wood for 25 dols. The task was performed in a tract of high woodland which 
commanded a view of the blue waters of Lake Erie and the shipping in the port of Cleve- 
land. With his boyish love of nautical adventure freshly stimulated, he walked to 
I'leveland, and went on board a schooner lying at the quay to ask for employment. 
Fortmiately the schooner reeked with unsavoury smells, the skipper came up drunk, 
and dismissed young Garfield with a volley of oaths. An hom- later he had accepted from 
another cousin an engagement to drive the mules which towed his canal-boat. After his 
first " all round " voyage between Cleveland and Pittsburg, he was promoted to the post 
of bowsman, and flattered himself that now at length he was beginning to learn some- 
thing of navigation. General Garfield represented in Congress a district in the extreme 
north-east of Ohio, which forms part of the " Western Reserve," so-called because it was 
ceded in early days to the Connecticut Land Company, and settled by a chosen company 
from New England, whose descendants have there reproduced the sober, reading, 
thinking, praying life of the old Atlantic states. He succeeded at 28 years of age in the 
representation of this community Joshua Giddings, who had been for nearly a quarter of 
a century one of the leading statesmen of America.

ENGLISH PROVERBS. 

Adversity tries friends. 

What every one asks, what every one gives, but what very few take — advice. 

Age before honesty. Two of a trade seldom agree. 

Agree, for law is costly. All's well that ends well. 

Almost was never hanged. Better be alone than in bad company. 

Make the best of a bad bargain. A bargain is a bargain. 

Bear and forbear. Beauty is but skin deep. 

As you make your bed so you must lie on it. 

Better be a beggar than a fool. Beggars must not be choosers. 

A good beginning makes a good ending. 

Good to begin well ; better to end well. Well begun is half done. 

As the twig is bent the tree's inclined. 

The better the day the better the deed. Birds of a feather flock together. 

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. 

The sharper the blast, the shorter 'twill last. 

Who so blind as he that will not see ? 

He that is born to be hanged can never be drowned. Boys will be boys. 

Brevity is the soul of wit. A burnt child dreads the fire. 

Better pay the butcher than the doctor. 

You cannot eat your cake and have it. If the cap fit, wear it. 

Be captain of your own ship. Care will kill a cat. 

Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves. 

Like carrying coals to Newcastle. When the cat's away, the mice will play. 

A cat may look at a king. Catch that catch may. 

I'm too old a bird to be caught by chaff. Charity begins at home. 

Count not your chickens before they are hatched. 

Children and fools speak the truth. A chip of the old block. 

Children should hear, see, and say nothing. As clear as mud. 

Christmas comes but once a year, A close mouth catcheth no flies. 

Every cloud hath a silver lining. Cut your coat according to your cloth. 

Who goes worse shod than the cobbler's wife ? Much coin much care. 

Two's company and three's none. Comparisons are odious. 

Tell me what company you keep, and I will tell you who you are. 

A contented mind is a continual feast. First creep and then go. 

No cross, no crown. The crow thinks her own bird fairest. 

Don't cry out before you're hurt. Great cry and little wool. 

Custom is second nature. The danger's past, and God's forgotten. 

As dead as a door-nail. Nothing is surer than death. 

Out of debt, out of danger. Delays are dangerous. 

Never venture out of your depth until you can swim. 

Talk of the devil and he'll be sure to appear. Give the devil his due. 

Never say die. After dinner sit awhile, after supper walk a mile. 

An ounce of discretion is worth a pound of wit. 

Do as you would be done by. Every dog has his day. 

When one door shuts another opens. 

A drowning man will catch at a straw. Enough is as good as a feast. 

Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. 

Don't put all your eggs into one basket. 

Better an empty house than a bad tenant. Evil gotten, evil spent. 

An Englishman's house is his castle. To err is human ; to forgive divine. 

He that knows himself best, esteems himself least. 

Everybody's business is nobody's business. Of two evils choose the lesser. 

Every man for himself, and God for us all. 

Let every tub stand on its own bottom. Extremes meet. 

Her face was her fortune. Faint heart never won a fair lady.

THOMAS CARLYLE. 

FIVE or six miles north of Annan is the village of Ecclefechan. Here it was on the 
4th of December, 1795, that Thomas Carlyle was born. His father, James Carlyle, 
who was a stone-mason, was a steady and prosperous man, though he had only three 
months of regular education. His first wife dying a year after marriage, he took fur 
his second wife Margaret Aitken. In 1806, when Thomas Carlyle was little more than 
ten, his father took him to Annan School. The schoolmaster was Adam Hope, who had 
also taught Edward Irving and Hugh Clapperton, the famous African explorer. 
At fourteen, being intended for the ministry, he was sent to Edinburgh University, 
but, however, he did not succeed in taking a degree, so, after spending seven years there, 
he left the university and obtained by competition at Dumfries the post of mathematical 
master in the Annan Academy. After leaving Annan, he was appointed mathematital 
master to a school in Kirkcaldy. He taught there for two years, but becomin'^ weary of 
the work, and having saved a little money, he left for Edinburgh, determined to devote 
himself to literature. In 1823, he commenced his career by contributing to Brewster's 
Encyclopaedia some able articles on "Montesquieu," "Montaigne," "Nelson," and the two 
" Pitts," and literary notices to the new Edinburgh Review. In the same year ho com- 
pleted a translation of Legendre's Geometry, to which he prefixed an essay on proportiuu; 
and published his translation of " Wilhelm Meister," a work which showed a direction of 
reading destined to influence materially his future career. After finishing this transla- 
tion, he commenced "the Life of Schiller," which was published by instalments in the 
London Magazine. For Goethe and Schiller Carlyle had the greatest admiration. Having 
married in 1826 Jane Welsh, a former pupil of Edward Irving, he resided alternately 
at Comely Bank and Craigenputtoch, a small estate 15 miles to the N. W. of Dumfries. In 
this secluded spot he occasionally contributed to the foreign and other reviews of the 
day. In 1830 he wrote "Sartor Resartus," and felt that in it he had struck at last 
the true note of his life. In August, 1831, he came with this book to London to seek a 
pubhsher, but without success, as it had been written in a style unknown in the trade. 
In the year 1833 " Sartor Resartus " appeared in Frazer's Magazine. Next year Thomas 
Carlyle and his wife left Craigenputtoch for London, and established themselves in 5 
Cheyne Row, Chelsea, the house that was Carlyle's home for the rest of his life. His next 
book was the " French Revolution," a history abounding in vivid and graphic descrii.tions. 
In 1840 he delivered a series of lectures on "Heroes, Hero-worship, and the Heroic in 
History." This work was full of the broadest sympathy for individual men who had 
known themselves and the purpose of their lives, had worked with a will, and had risen 
above the crowd of imitators who reproduce dead forms of life, and whom he called 
" apes of the dead sea." His "Life of John Sterling" has been described as the finest bio- 
graphy ever written. In 1845 he produced '' Oliver Cromwell's Letters and Speeches, with 
Elucidations." This work gave him a distinguished place among the historians oi the age. 
In 1858, 1862, and 1865 Carlyle published, by two volumes at a time, the six volumes of 
his " History of Frederic the Great," a work by which he again allied himself to German 
thought. He had been dravsoi towards Frederic by admiration of strong individual will. In 
1865 Carlyle was elected Lord Rector of Edinburgh University, and delivered his inangurdl 
address on April 2, 18t)6. A few days after this his wife died. She had been out for her 
usual drive in Hyde Park, and was found dead in the brougham, sitting with her Imnds 
on her lap. After her death Cai-lyle became more morose and sad than ever, and 
occupied himself partly in looking after new and popular editions of his bo<'ks, the 
sale of which had increased very nauch since his rect orial speech. He also collected the 
letters and memorials of Mrs. Carlyle, and spent much time in this labour of Itive, while 
he at the same time kept up his " Journal." Gradually he found himself standing, as it 
were, a monument of the past — almost all his old friends had been called aw.^y. John 
Wilson, author of the " Noctes," Lord Cockbum, Lady Ashburton, Lord Ashburton, Mrs. 
Carlyle, John Stuart Mill, these and many more had gone from this earthly scene, leaving 
him a sad, solitary old man. Still, he came of a tough and vigorous stock, and although 
he in 1871 handed over to Froude his vrife's letters, etc., for publication after his death, 
his time had not yet come. We may here say that although it is perhaps a pity when 
biographies are published that the public should become aware of all the private quarrels and 
petty grievances of those who are known to be our greatest men, still the very fact that 
Carlyle gave these letters to the public reflects credit upon him. In most cases the rule 
of saying nothing but good of the dead is held sacred, but in his case it showed what a 
grand character he had, and how gi-eat his regard for truthfulness and straitforwardness 
when he was not afraid of showing the world his worst points. The years rolled on 
slowly. In 1878 his brother John died, and this was about the last link that bound him 
to earth. His own health, though feeble, still continued moderately good. His mind 
was as strong as ever, and he was entirely occupied with his approaching change. He 
died on the 5th day of February, 1881, aged 86 years, and was buried in the old kirky.ird 
at Ecclefechan. Dean Stanley offered his executors a grave for him in We.stiiiiu-ter 
Abbey, but his own wish was that he should be buried by the side of his laciicr tiud 
mother. Thus ended the Ufe '>f one of the truest and noblest men that Go'l ever 
made— a life that had been devoted to an effort to do right and to be true in word 
and deed.
