The Burlington (Vt.) JF^ee Press oon-tributes the following singular story to the “ mysterious ” literature now od-oupying the attention of the press to so great an extent t ' A story of snoh occurrences has recently been related to us, «nd if it were permissible to give namds, they Would give much weight to the statement. The facts come to us through only two mouths from the actors. A family removed from ft country Grillage into Boston, and occupied a house comparatively new, and in a modem part of the city. The children soon kegan to tell their parents of a boy who came to play with them in the stoeet or in ttieirplay*' room, and of what he said and did, and how he looked. The parents never saw the boy, and finally bade the children bring him in some day to see them. The answer was, “ Oh, we can’t ; he goes right away.” Being told the next time he came to the house to let them know, the children did so ; but, as they said, he had “ gone right away *’ when the parents reached the playroom. This went on for some time, greatly to the wonder ftnd perplexity of the parents ; the children, simple, and matter of fact, thought nothing strange of it. One day they reported to their father that their playmate, now well known by name, told them his father and mother were going to Europe in a few days, and he gave their names and the vessel they would sail by from New York. The gentleman, without saying anything, went to New York, found such names on the steamer’s list, went to the dock on the day of the sailmg, sought out the persons, and inquired if they had a boy of such age and description as his children had related to him. With great emotion they replied, “ We had such a boy, but he is dead; why do you ask?” Further conversation convinced them and the Bostonian that the spirit of their darling boy, never Been by those who knew and loved him, was a frequent visitor to the house of perfect strangers, ^ d seen and talked with by the children of others. What was the result is not known to us; whether or not, upon the return home of the Bostonian, any attempt was made to open eommunica-tion with the spirit boy for his parents, or even whether or not the “ spirit ” was again seen; but the facts here given went far to overturn his disbelief in the possibility of the return of the soul in bodily appearance, on the part of the clear-headed, devout and grayhaired man, to whom the tale was told by his life-long friend, the Bostonian himself, and through whom the story comes to us^_______________ Fay of School Teachers* Under the heading, “A Mongrel Profession,” the New York Tribune considers the school teachers of the United States. The paper says : It is outrageous that a profession which in its noble and imperative work touches the mark with theology and medicine, should give to its cleverest members little more than the poor necessities of life ; should ofTer them no hope of an old age made comfortable by the work of their prime. It is the absolute truth that salaries paid to public school teachers are as small as in any sort of human decency can be given. Public money is spent lavishly on many a popular folly, we are generous in building magnificent school houses, but when changes are made in the starving salaries of teachers they are often in a downward direction. One Oense-quence is that men of lively and original mind who happen to step into the profession, use it merely as one round of life’s ladder, and climb out of it as soon as possible. Of those who stay in it, many a one beginning with good-natured aptitude is shaped in the struggle with constant hard times into the prejudiced and thoroughly conservative pedagogue, who is not the least bane of our school system. Without much leisure to use the means of intellectual expansion, and without money to purchase them, he becomes a teacher by rote; his poverty first, and then his will consents to a routine without freshness and inspiration. The faults of our system are many and grievous, as an almost unanimous complaint attests ; and half of these faults are directly traceable to the positive ignorance and indifference of teachers. Instead of severely censuring them, however, it might be as well to distribute the blame, not leaving out niggardly and thoughtless school boards and committees. We have no possible commendation for incompetent teachers, but it must be said that they give as much as their salaries rightly call for. In advocating worthier remuneration we do not mean to offer premiums to in-competency. We want better teaccers; a larger and more rigid preparation for the profession; higher standards of admission ; and best of ail, the enthusiastic devotion of proficients. We urge that salaries should be large enough to invite men and women of proper capacities to the work; and that the requirements should be so severe as to exclude all incapables. When these needs are met, the morale of the profession will instantly rise, and the profession itself will take its own deserved place in social esteem. Fish In New England, , Prof. Baird asserts that the supply of fish along the New England coast is sensibly diminishing. Shoal fish, though produced in enormous quantities, have so many enemies that great havoc is caused among them, entirely apart from that effected by man. The dogfish kills them in myriads, while the bluefish seems created only to destroy. It kills and maims ten times more than it ean use for food. Then the destruction by sea birds is almost incalculable. But besides all their natural enemies, the fish have had to contend for over thirty years past with the fixed engines and weirs which destroy them as they travel to their spawning grounds, and the professor thinks that the only way to prevent the extinction of edible fish is to establish certain times for their capture, and to remove the fixed engines and weirs which give the fish no chance for their lives, and tako in nambers unfitted for homaafood. The Hlftaland Costume The Highland costume, says the Danbury News man in a letter from Scotland, is common in Inverness, but it is not a common garb to the peopl^ I t is worn mostly by the gentty in the hunting season, a n i is a favorite garb with the Duke of Edinburg when in the Highlands. The measure adopted after the rebellion of the olans in favor of Prince Oharies’ Edward, prohibiting nlftn meetingtl and the clan dress, struck the death blow to the most picturesque masculine costume ever in vogue, from Adam to Dr. Mary Walker. Quite frequently, however, I meet some farmer in the Kilt and stockings, and there are a few in the Highlands who wear them the year around. They are not a most comfortable dress in these breezy, ^ t autumn days, and are much less in the winter when these hills and moors are covered with snoW and a keen wind sweeps through the glens. The dress consists now of sack coat—instead of the plaid waist of former times and the long plaid wrapped about the body for protection—a kilt or a yard or two of tartatt gathered in tucks at the upper edge and wound about the hips, and fastened at the waist, and of sufficient width to permit it to reach wimm one or three inches of the knees. Under this IS a pair of muslin or woolen drawers of sufficient length to cover the thighs, but hardly long enough to be reassuring to the sensitive observer on a windy day. From these drawers to the tops of the stockings, which come nearly up to the knees, the legs are bare, and are exposed to all kinds of weather. Yet the wearers do not suffer from the exposure, any more than one does from having Ws face uncovered. I rtftTi understand this with those who were brought up in the dress and wear it the year round, but how those who adopt it only occasionally, and the autumn hunting season being one of the occasions, keep comfortable these chilly days, is beyond my comprehension. I t is not a dress adapted to blackberrying, nor to a mole on the l e g . ___________ ^______ _ How a Farmer Saved his Crops. Mr. M. Connolly, an enterprising farmer living on the banks of the_ Red river, five miles north of Breckenridge, informs the Fergus Falls (Minn.) Advocate that the grasshoppers settled on his sixty-acre field of grain one day, smd after waking round his fields a short time, and feeling pretty blue, he concluded to try the effect of smoke upon them. The prairie to the windward of his grain had not been burned last season, and he applied the match to the old grass, which, together with the grown crop, is admirably adapted to the purpose of raising a smoke. The result justified his most sanguine hopes. Np sooner did the smoke overspread the field than the “ varmints ” rose like a cloud; but very naturally settled down again just bejond the reach of the smoke. Thiii experiment determined his course. Every fifteen or twenty rods through his grain field was a strip of ground that had been occupied by a movable fence, as each successive year s breaking was added to his field. He put tiia team to work hauling straw from an old strawstack, and hauling it along at intervals in these unoccupied strips. When the whole field was thus made ready, the mateh was applied av simultaneously as possible at all points. The grasshoppers rose in a g r ^ t swarm, and hdf ered over the field. They tried to settle in places, but the smoke was too much for them. The team was kept at work adding damp straw from the stack to all the smudges. The fight, which began in the afternoon, was kept up till night, and Mr. Connolly was ready to renew it on the following morning. The hoppers left his fields, and Mr. 0. saved his crop. Are the Eddy Brothers Frauds! The Oneida Community recently sent an investigating committee to visit the Eddy family at Chittenden, Vt. After ^describing a series of so-called spiritual phenomena, Mr. F. Wayland Smith, speaking for the committee, says : I l^ve now brushed hastily over the main M ts which came under my observation. I am aware that Dr. Beard and many other skeptics are exerting themselves to prove that all these phenomena are produced by jugglery and tricks cleverly executed by the Eddy brothers. But, after studymg the men as carefully as possible during iho four days we lived with them, I cannot believe them dishonest. I t would tax my credulity much more severely to believe that this is jugglery than to believe that it is what they say it is, the work of spirits; for to believe that it is jugglery is to ascribe to these two simple farmers all, and more than all, the combined skill of every prestidigitator who has ever visited us. The most that the skeptics undertake to prow is that many of these phenomena might be produced by slight of h a n d ; no one nas been able to prove that any of them are so produced.

Did not faith feed the lamp of hope with oil, it would soon die. The Codfish. In consequence of the complaints made by the inhabitants of the extreme north of Norway, East Finmark, that the newly instituted whale fishery off their coast was destroying their means of subsistence, the cod fishery, the Norwegian Government sent Prof. Sars to inquire into the matter. The chief complaint was that the fish called oape-lau, unless they were driven into shore as food by the whales, kept out in the deep sea, and that the cod were so sensitive to impurity that the least suspicion of blood or fatty substance on the water drove them to a distance. The professor has spent the whole summer in the district, and has examined the bodies of freshly harpooned whales nearly every day, which he has found to be almost without exception blue whales, a species that never hunts the capelau. The failure of the cod fishery tnerefore has no connection with the killing of the whales. A paper in Santa Barbara, CaL, says : ** Winter has come.

After sevwal ineffeotual efforts t o o b ta in assistance by calling out in all the sweet modulations of which the female voice ia capable, one young lady volunteered to creep out through a flue, and succeeded in w doing, but with oonaiderable damage to her clothing. When outside keiself, however, a good deal remained to be done, the remainder of th# fair Da*7 posiiavely declining to attempt the paa-sage. When the janitresa bad o w found by the lady ^ o had gallM ^ passed through the flue, it was only, ^ learn that she had handed thekeysoTW to the sexton, who was supposed t# have gone into the oountry for a coupU - of days.
