THURSDAY. JUNE 12. 1881.
I'm sixty-one I'm gj owing old.
My limbs aro weak, my blood runs
With eyes half shut in the sun I lie,
Caring naught howlho time goes Ivy
My hand was hot at twenty-five ;
Then blood and fibre were alivo ;
But time its victory hath won,
It's cold and chill at sixty-one
The swelling bust, the Hashing eye,
The ankle trim as it trips tvy.
The witching beauties half concealed
From habit I sit down to dine
What good to me the mantling wine 'i
With stomach gone, what earthly
The rarest skill or richest food?
Gold ! I might as well have lead ;
Gold can't restore a nerve that's dead,
Millions won't make mv step more
Millions won't give me appetite
And so, half dead, 1 stupid lie.
Waiting for t' other half to die.
Writing, my only company
That taunting devil, memory
Played out. -
"Not long ago a little vol
ume made its appearance,
w h i c h, n n d e r t h e i i 1 1 e
"Don't," pretended to guide
awkward youths through the
intricacies of social life. Since
then several other teff usions
of' a similar kind have con
tinued the work of education
commenced by "Don't.''
Someare dedicatedto the world
at large : others apparently to
roughs and urchins, and the
last, "What to Do," a worthy
companion to some of its pre
decessors, is written for mar
ried (Women . Some of these
commandments areas follows :
Do remember that you are
married to a man and not to a
god; be prepared for imperfec
tions. Do anticipate the discovery
by your husband that you are
"only a woman" ; if you were
not he would not care about
Do. once in a. while, let your
husband have the last word ;
it will grrtify him and be no
particular loss to you.
Do be reasonable; it is a
great deal to ask under some
circumstances, but do try;
reasonable women are rare ;
Do remember that servants
are made of the same material
as you are, a little coarser
grained, perhaps, butthesame
Do try and forget yourself ;
as for your husband, forget
that you married him and re
member that lie married yon ;
he will then probably do the
Do let him read the news,
paper at the breakfast table ;
it is unsociable, but then its
only a trifle after all. and he
Do let him know more than
you do once in awhile : it
keeps up his self-respect, and
you will be none the worse
for admitting that you arc not
Do remember that the merest
of life is not centered in your
home circle ; do familiarize
yourself in outside events.
Some English s c i e n t i e t s
Jiaye, bison trying to explain
why it is that persons who
become' lost a fog or who are,
for any reason, unable to see
then: way, usually walk in a
circle instead of following a
straight line, "YV. Larden
thinks that the cause may be
found in the strength of the
legs, the stronger of the two
outwalking the other when
not controlled by the will . In
conformation of this view C.
H. Darwin recounts some ex
periments in which several
schoolboys were blind folded
and told to walk straight
ahead, when the "right-legged''
ones circle to the left and
the "lef t-elgged ' ones circle t o
the r i g h t, e x a c t ly as t hey
should do if the theory is cor
rect ; while one boy, who
seemed to be neither riu'ht-
legged nor left-leirii'ed,
to use the two limbs with
about equal facility, walked
ir regu larly . b u t deviated
much less from a straight
course than any of the others.
Another w r i t e r, Thomas
Ilawksley, supposes that few
persons have both leg of
equal length, in which ease
the longer limb must have a
tendency to outstrip the other
OCTOROONS INNEW ORLEANS.
There is in T-Tew Orleans a
rase and distinct race which
is no race. It has its one
hand upon the whites and the
other upon the blacks, and it
occupies a position betwixt
and between, belonging to
both and to neither. The
whites refuse to acknowledge
them, and they hold them
selves so far above the blacks
that they will acknowledge no
relationship with them . Like
the bat, they are neither bird
nor the animal, but occupy a
position entirely distinct, and
a very lonesome one it is.
These are the octoroons,
which in S"ew Orleans means
not onry a person whose blood
is one-eighth negro, but all of
that class who are almost
white, but in whom negro
blood is perceptible. Dowu
here they don't say negro
blood it is negro "taint."
They are not white enough
for the white nor 1)1 ack enough
for the negro. Their posi
tion, especially that of the
women of the race, is very
peculiar. "No matter how
white an octoroon girl may be
a white man may not mar1,
her. She maybe as beautiful as
"Venus and accomplished in
every possible way ; she may
sing like Patti and paint like
"Rosa Bonheur, but no white
man would marry her. would
be ostracism f orher and for him
also . She could not be received
in society and he-would find
himself on the wrong side of the
wall at once . The la wis fiixed
and the barricade is impass
able. One Sunday morning,
writes S. H. D., .while the
bells were ringing for church, a
d-year old was playing in the
front yard. The mother was
sitting at window, and to put
on a. semblance of strict ob
servance of the, Sabbath she
called her boy to come in.
"Oh, mother, mayn't J play
out here in the yard a little
while?" "ISTo, my son, it is
Sunday, and it is wicked to
played on Sunday." Willie
came in very reluctantly and
sat down looking demure and
dejected. Some time after
the bells stopped ringing.
Willie's mother said: "My
son, if you want to play you
can go into the back yard and
play." Ycs, but mother,
ain't it Sunday in the back
yard, loo?" Cincinnati .En
quirer. 'I hear that you are to ninny a
wealthy American girl," said one
British nobleman to another,
'Ya'as," replied his lordship- "You
must allow ine to congratulate you.
Are there any incumbrances on her
property?" ""Yn'as; the lady."
The mania to collect different
styles of postage stamps still incxists
n some localities. A little boy who has
a collection of hundreds of different
stamps, happened to be present when
his father and some friends were dis
cussing the political situation. "I
tell you," sajd the excited parent,
"(hat this unfortmnate country is
slowly but surely drifting into Im
parlialism.In n few more years the
lust vesticjo of American liberty will
have disappeared, and then we will
have an empire," "Jlnrrah for the
empire! Then we will have a now
kind of postage stamp," was the un
patriotic response of the young en
thusiast. Texas Sftings.
TURNED MIS HEAD.
,4I wish I had eyes in the back of
my head," said a young lady the
"Why?" asked a devoted admirer
"So that I could sec what was go
ing on without the trouble of turn
ing my head,"
"You can turn my head without
any trouble," responded the youth
with a gloomy sigh.
"Mark Twain" is a member of the
of the Rev. Mr. Twitchcll's church
in Hartford, and so was the late cx
Governor Earshall Jewell. But the
cx-Govcrnor was "higher up" in the
church, as the humorist expressed it,
and used to pass around the plate.
Once Mark Twaiu said to the ex
Governor, "Sec here, Governor, they
let you collect the donations but they
never would let me do it." Oh yes,
they would said the ex-Governor,
adding "that is, with a bell-punch-
