A Galile-cau Village.
In one of the most remote and se-
cluded valleys in the mountains of
northern Galilee lies a village, the
small population of which possesses
an interest altogether unique. As I
looked down upon it from the precipi-
whicn 1 was skirting the flunk of the
mountain I thought I had rarely seen a
spot of s«eh ideal beauty. It was an
oasis—not actually in a desert, for the
rocky mountain ranges were covered
with wild herbage—but in a savage
wilderness of desolation, in tho midst
of which the village nestled in a forest
of orange, almond, fig and pomegran-
ate trees, the tiny rills of water by
which they were irrigated glistening
like silver threads in the sunlight, and
the yellow crops beyond contrasting
with the dull green of the hill verdure
long deprived of water, and the gray
rocks which reared their craggy pinna-
cles above it.
The name of this village is Bukeia.
I had heard vaguely of the existence of
a spot in Galileo where a community of
Jews lived who olaimed to be descend-
ants of families who had tilled tho soil
in this same locality prior to the de-
struction of Jerusalem and the subse-
quent dispersion of the race; and as it
had never been suspealed that a remnant
of the nation hail clung to tho soil of
their fathers from time immemorial,
and as it is certain that ti.ii is the only
remnant that has, I took sou.e trouble
to ascertain the naiue of the village,
and felt that it wtis wort it a pilgrimage
to visit it. Although hitherto known
to Europeans and tourists, it has been
for many years a spot much frequented
by the Jews of Sa'fed anil T.borias, and
last summer, especially, when the
cholera panic prevailed in the country,
there was a perfect rush ot the wealth-
ier Jews and rabbis of those towns to
its pure air and bracing climate, in a
small way it is a sort of Jewish sanita-
rium.— Cor. of Sew York Sun.

A people's standard of intelligence
and morality is invariably regulated by
the standard of thoir literature. If of
a low, trifling, immoral type, such will
bo the character of tiie people among
whom it circulates. All history, ex-
perience, anil observation demonstrates
this fact It is to be found in the rise
and fall of men and parlies, natious
Deprive a people of
and thev degenerate
L;mit them to im-
moral literature, and debauchery and
crime are sure to overtake them sooner
It costs no more to feed a people on
sound philosophy draped in proper
language, than it does to surfeit them
with cheap romance adorned in rags
and polluted in tilth. But another ob-
jector replies that the public taste re-
quires such literature, and tho papers
would not sell without it. If this be
true, it simply proves that the public
taste is perverted and public reform is
seriously demanded. Tho pernicious
influence of this standard of literature
may not be so readily detected in tho
adult population as among the youth.
In the one case character is formed
and habits are tixed, while in the other
character is in process of formation
and habits may be changed or improv-
ed. If the family table or library is
loaded with indecent literature and
sensational trash, tao youth of the
country aro not to be blamed if they
grow up to be desperadoes and land in
the penitentiary or on the gallows.
Censure belongs not to tho wrong-
doers, but to ti.e parents or guurdians
who placed such temptations in their
way. There is a prevailing tendency
to ignore tho wholesome restraints
which characterized the culture of chil-
dren at an earlier period in our history,
and the increase of crime in our land
is largely attributable to this neglect
in the education of children. No fea-
ture of domestic discipline should be
more scrupulously guarded than that
which limits the selection of family lit-
erature to such papers and books as
produce a sound, healthy, moral, so-
cial, and political influence on tho
Pood of the Ancients.
The young were a.uuuted along with
the old to tho public tables; and al-
though it was understood that the con-
versation should be of a k nd to elevate
the youthful mind, it was not meant
that the talk to which they might lis-
ten should be made common gossip.
"Nothing spoken here must ever go
out there," the old men would say to
their juniors, pointing to the door. By
all accounts the early Greeks were
vegetarians and were strictly tem(>er-
ate. They were satisfied with tho sim-
plest fruits, and their drink was water.
Even when agriculture had made some
progress among them, and barley
could be had, the richer people prefer-
red the old condition of iiving. The
barley bread must have been a great
boon to tho poor amon,' the primitive
Greeks,seeing they were driven to dine
at times on grasshoppers and leaves.
Much the same conditions prevailed
among the Romans, who only ou fes-
tive occasions partook of animal foot!,
their ordinary repast consisting wholly
of milk, herbs and roots. There came
a time, however, wiien the Romans
went to the opposite extreme,and when
the whole empire used to be scanned,
as it wore, to furnish delicacies or nov-
elties for the tablo. The Yorkshire pie
of the past was noted for the variety
of its contents, but it was simnUa'.'i* U.

of the fashionable 111111:111 banquet.
This "dish" was a whole boar disem-
boweled, and filled with small animals
and birds. Occasionally the "removes"
were brought in like a pyramid, the
dishes being built up from a base as
broad as the table. There was not on-
ly extravagance but great waste at the
entertainments. Some of the accounts
that have come down to us read as
though the object of tho host was to
prepare, not for epicures, but for glut-
tons. In one instance twelve guests
met to dine on eight boars, and boars
at the time wore costly. The name of
Lucullus lias become a proverb in con-
nection with feast ng; but in justice to
him it must be said that I10 was not
without method in his feasting. He
spent money fr«*oiy for good living, but
he was sensible enough to have a scale
of probable costs to go by, and eventu-
ally, to save himself ami servants
trouble, he gave each room in his
house a distinct name, and the purvey-
ors could always tell by the room se-
lected for a feast, to what expense they
were to go. Some extraordinary mix-
tures were prepared for epicures. Thus,
Viiclius. in a silver piatter, used to
blend the livers of gilt-heads, the brains
of pheasants and peacocks, the tongues
of phenieopters ami* the milts of
lampreys. This preparation would be
edible, which is more than can be'
said for the dissolved pc.vrls Caligula
und Clodius gave to their «;u sts. It is
related of Apicus that in addition to a
considerable income, he laid aside 95.-
OOvi.OOU sesterces iti hard cash to be de-
voted to 110 ot! *;r purpose than iuxur.-
ous living; and he succeeded so well
that he was afraid when he found that
he had only lO.OOU.OOO left that he
would be starved to death, and so he
poisoned himself. —Mercury.
How They Eat ,-tt u lMiiliulelphla Show
When the cannibalistic Botocudo In-
dians sat down to supper tit the board-
ing house for cranks or "uniques," on
Ninth street abovn Arch, last evening
they did not seem to know or care
what day it was. When the repast was
brought in they were served for the
first time—hash. After poking 1t over
with their grimy forefingers and, find-
ing no prizes, they pushed it away with
dissatisfied grunts. Tneir interpreter
said it was too civilized a dish for
them. They liked much better the
tough beef steaks, the rarer the better
These they ate with a knife ami fork,
except when the old ha£ with the big
block of wood grablied an especially
delicious and gristly morsel In her
hand. That was a barbarism, howev-
er, on which the other barbarians
frowned. They seemed to be passion-
ately fond of strong tea with plen.v «»f
sugar. The bucks being unincumbered
with any labial adornments, drank like
white men, bui the beautifully deco-
rated females stuck oiit th«*ir touuuu
anu used it as was ilr.* un leriio In u ir
brothers. The old one catching tho
eye of a reporter, who was watching
her, made a flourish as if to say: "This
is my great Hjct," placed an oyster
cracker on her wooden lip, and, with a
jerk of her head, sent it high in the air.
When it descended there was no escape
from that cavernous mouth. They had
eaten all tho steaks in the house and
were looking with hungry gaze at a
plump young colored waiter when they
were hurried off for exhibition.
These Indians are probably ono of
the most uncivilized tribes inexistence.
Their homo is in Brazil, in the Prov-
inces of Kspirito, Santo and Minas
Geraes, which are situated along tho
banks of Rio Mercury to tho north of
Rio Janeiro. Tney live iu the fastness-
es of tho forest, and are very inaccessi-
ble because of their savage and roving
nature. Their name, Botocudo, comes
from the Portuguese word Botoquc.
meaning a bl»>ck, and is given them be-
cause of the custom ©/ wearing blocks
of wood in their lips and ears. The wo-
man begins very young wearing a
small piece of wood, and gradually en-
larging it, until thifald woman now
here has one three ioelres in diameter,
about which the red paction of the lip
stretches in a mo&t kornible manner.
When their agent aixl interpreter was
asked why they wore the wood he re-
plied that "it was for beauty only.
That is, they considered it lo>bo beau-
In their native state those of both
sexes who have not been affected by
the advance of civilizations roam about
entirely devoid of clothing. Modesty
is unknown to them. They hunt with a
bow and poisoned arrw*.s, and a lone
spear with which they k31 all manner
of game. When hunting in pairs they
kill the jaguar with great, skill. One
of them kneels in front of his comrade
with the bow and shoots his arrows.
When tho beast springs at him he falls
flat, and his comrade receives the spot-
ted monarcn of the Brazilian forest on
his long spear. They will eat absolute-
ly every living creature," bugs, lizards,
monkeys and their brother-men. They
never stay more than a month at ono
place, living in temporary huts of
straw. They never build villages.
Although they are so undeveloped,
never having heard anything better,
some of their work'in wood carving
able results might be entertained iui
thetu if ouly they could receive a little
education and get oven partially initia-
ted into the arts of civilization.—fUila-
The library of Harvard College con-
tains the first two drafts of Longfel-
low's "Excelsior." The first is written
011 tne back of a noto addressed to
Longfellow by Charles Sumner, and is
endorsed "Sept. 28, 1841, 3:;>0 o'clock,
morning. Now in bod." The second
shows variations and erasures. For
instance, the line "A youth who bore
'mid snow and ice" was wri.tun four
times before decided upon—"A youth,
wiio bore in snow and ice," "A youth
who bore a pearl of price," and "A
youth who bore above all price." The
inception 01 the line "A tear stood in
his bright blue eye" was "A tear stood
in his pale blue eye."
German newspapers are finding
something to console themselves with
in the statistics of emigration from
the Empire. They reason, in fact, that
Germany, in the matter of population, is
better oil' than most other European
states. Taking the figure of popula-
tion at 100,000, Norway within the last
five years, sent away the highest num-
ber of emigrants—viz, 963, Sweden
came next with 615, Great Britain next
with 587, and then came Denmark, 317;
Portugal, 200; Switzerland, 252; Ger-
many (seventh in the list,) 251; Italy,
If,; Austria, 40, and France 10.
In Bavaria it is illegal to criticize
even iu a friendly spirit, the actions of
the King. Soon after the termination
of the Franee-Genuai; war a story was
told of a meeting in tho streets of
Munich between the King of B.ivaria
and a wounded soldier, during which
the King, finding that he was not rec-
ogn zed, expressed his surprise. "How
should I know your Majesty," said the
soldier in explanation. "You never go
to the army, and 1 never go to the
play." To the pub:ioa.ion of this an-
ecdote may probably be attributed tho
determination taken by the Kiug not to
tolerate remarks of nay- kind on his
