Night after nighl this would happen, and
lie would lie in the passage, with his nou to
the street-door, untill his mistress returned.
At last the poor dog began to understand
that for some reason or other, lie was no
longer required at the theatre, and then a
change began to creep over him. lie
seemed to lose his spirits ; took his food
with less relish day by day. Tf he cheered
up -a little in the morning, he would get
quieter and more listless as the night came
on. llis young mistress grieved Over the
change in her favorite, and veterinary sur
geons were consulted, and poor "Lion"
was examined, drugged, and dieted ; but all
to no purpose. The" surgeons could not
say what ailed hin ; could not understand
why he got weaker and thinner.
Dear old "Lion," who used to delight to
accompany his mistress in her morning
walks, and who would scamper backwards,
and forwards, hither and thither, doing in
dustriously and merrily ten miles to her one,
gpt gradually to feel one mile too much fol
ium; then his strength gave way at even
half that distance, and he would lie down
and whine, and look up with a piteous ap
peal in his kind eyes, as much as to say, "I
cant go on, missie; do take me honlc."
Shorter and shoitcr the walks became no
running hither and thither now, no gam
bolling and joyous barking, only a weary
plodding along while his strength lasted,
then down he would sink, and pant and
wait until no recovered sulhcienlly to turn

Each day he
got weaker the brightness of his coat was
anu nere ana inure tne o acic a.ls
tufted v Ith grey. He would scarcely touch
nis looct, ana would lie lor hours quite
quiet, with his head resting on his paAVS,
and his eyes following his beloved mistress
about the room. Sometimes he would rise
painfully, and put his head in his Gerty's
lap, and nose her hand up on to it, as if
her touch eased some ache or pain there.
From this attitude he never Avantedto move
unless asked to do so.
At this time, the only thing that could
rouse him, was when she would ask him to
go through his part Avith her. Then his
eyes would light up for a time, and he
would make an effort Avith a mixture of pain
pud enjoyment, and act as much of his
scenes as he could, then with a 1'cav feeble
wags of his tail he would lie panting doAvn,
sighing deeply, and lool.ng up as much as
to say, "Don't be angry with mc, missie,
I can't do any more."

Of course there can be no hereafter" for a

murderer of the human race, however
inhuman, may, and invariably docs, hope to
meet his victim in heaen, Avhen strangu

for a dog, who has only been gentle, faith

of Gerty's return. With a great effort he
lifted one paw tremblingly towards those
who wear tearfully watching hun, and, Avith
one deep, deep sigh and a little shiver,

""Why, what followed?" asked a half-dozen

That there is an arl in entertaining one's
fiiend no one can for a moment dispute,
neither can they doubt that such an art is
attainable by cultivation and care, though
they Avill probably maintain, and Avith reason,
that it is a gift possessed by comparatively
few people, and that in its spontaneity lies
its chief charm. But for people who do not
naturally possess the knack, it is neces
sary to analyse the art, not exactly to lay
down rules, but to offer suggestions and to
try to find out Avhat are the chief features
of this most enviable accomplishment. And
the object of this present paper is so to do.
How often on returning from a friend's
house have we said, "What a delightful
evening this has been ; Mrs. A. certainly
possesses the knack of giving everyone en
joyment; her manner is charming to all"
On the other hand avc return from a dull
house, where everything is done en regie, but
Avhere a predominant sense of stupidity,
overwhelms us, and if avc are at all sensitive
to externals, marks us for our oavii. AVhat
constitutes the difference in these two cases?
Mainly the manner of our hostess. Manner
then, is of the greatest importance in deter
mining the success or failure of our efforts
for the entertainment of our friends. Some
people taboo Avhat is called a good manner;
they maintain that if the motive be good, it
matters little Avhetherthe manners be irracei'nl
roueTi. Schoolgirls are often of this
opinion; they are so afraid of being thought
"young ladyish" or affected that they rush
to the opposite extreme, and think them
selves true and straightforward if rough
and ready. Selfconsciousness and shyness
are often the real cause of this awkward
ness ; in trying to be something, they are
unnatural and uneasy : but before experience
these gaucheries disappear, and an easy and
graceful manner is frequently the happy
result. Manner may in itself be of two
kinds the manner which is perfectly well
bred, and refined, but Avithal very chilling,
and the manner into Avhich is infused all
the charm of a kindly, sunshiny, honest
nature, Avith a sincere regard to please.
On its surface it bears the stamp of truth ;
here is no "mere veneer," no courtesy put
on, but a graciousness of speech and action
Avhich floAVS from the inner being and is
always there. As Avell as manner, tact, the
happy quality Avhich in Avomen is supposed
to be inborn, plays a prominent part in the
art of entertaining. Tact enters into the
feelings of others Avithout showing that it
does so ; it anticipates Avishes, and gives
them fulfilment almost before they are
Avishes ; in short, it is useful iir a thousand
instances, and may avcII be called another
sense. Auckland Weekly Ncivh.
Mrs. Fred. Douglass.
The marriage of Fred. Donbass to Miss
Helen M. Pitt, at his home, at "Washnigfon,
day before yesterday, has been pro,;'ic of
comment here as avciI as elscAvheie. It is
not generally known, however, that b's
bride accompanied him here to the National
Colored Convention last summer. She Avas
a tall Avoinan, dark complexioned and with
a decidedly Southern cast of features, Avhich
Avere rather handsome and striking. She
was quietly but elegantly dressed, and in the
best of taste, her attire being that of a lady
moving in the exclusive circles of the upper
ten. She Avas quite prominent 'n the Con
vention, though she took no pait in the
proceedings. Douglass brought her here
Avith his paivy, among Avhom were a number
of other women, all, besides Miss Pitt,
having more or less negro h'ood in 'heir
veins. It is not known where they lodged,
but it is to be presumed that his private
Secretary found quarters vulh the rest of
the party. It will be remembered that
Douglass in one of his speeches in the
Convention inveighed bitterly against mis
cegenation. He said that the progress of a
race depended mainly upon its pvity and
intermarriage; by destroying that tended
inevitably to its 'downfall, lint as he is a
mulatto himso'f it is probable that tl,!s fact,
in connection Avith the mature charms of lus
Secretary, has induced the illustrious negro
to alter his opinions. Lmmvilh Courier Jour

Some Queer Notions.
The old Jewish doctors entertained some
queer notions in regard to linger-nails. A
favorite theory was that before Adam's fall
the bodies of the first parents were perfectly
transparent, and that the nails are the ves
tige left of man's estate in the garden of
Eden. Instances have been obsei ml of
nails growing on the stumps of amputated
fingers, and when llio eofih containing the
corpse of the great Napoleon was opened
long after his death at St. Helena, his toe
nails had grown clear through his boots,
and his hair stuck through the chinks of the
