LIFE VIEWED WITH DIFFERENT EYES-
"But a week Is longl" ho said,
"With a tos of his ciuly head.
"One, two, llucc, foiu, live, six, seven
Sc en whole days. Why, 1 six jou
(You said It yourself you told mo so).
The stent God up In heaven
Made nil the enrth ami the sens and
Tho trees and tho bhds and the but
How can 1 wait for iny seed? to grow."
"But a month Is so longl" ho said
With a droop of his boyish head.
"Hear mo count one. two. three, four
Four whole weeks and Unco days inoics
Thlily-onc days, nnd each will cieep
As tho shadow oiawls over yonder
Thlity-ono nights and I shall lie
"Watching tho Mars climb up tho sky
How can I wait till a month Is o'cry"
"But a year is so long!" he said,
Uplifting his fair young head.
"All the seasons must come and go
Over the hills with footsteps slow
Autumn and winter, summer and
Oh, for a bildge of gold to fling
Over the chasm daik and wide,
Thatl might cross to tho other side,
Where she is wailing my love, my
"Ton j cms may be long!" lie said,
Slowly lalsing his stately head.
"But there is much to w in, there Is much
A man must l.ibor, a man must choose,
And lie mast be strong to wait.
The j ear, may bo long, but w ho would
The crown of honor, must do and
No time has ho to toy with fate
Who would climb to manhood's high
"Ah! life Is not long," he said,
Bowlng'his grand, while head.
"One, two, thice, four, the, six, socu

As swallows cleaWng the morning
Or golden glc.uns.it een.

Thu earthquake shocks which
were felt recently over a whole
area in Yorkshire reminds us (Home
News) that an authority on the sub
ject of these phenomena, M. Dclau
ncv, of Paris, is of opinion that next
year will see the recurrence of up
heavals of the earth's crust in an
intensified form. M. Dclauney is a
prophet of evil, but, unfortunately,
all his prophecies Jiavc hitherto
come true. His speciality is earth
quakes, and he predicts thcin only
too surely. In 1877, he announced
that the year would not conclude
without violent disturbance of the
earth, and as a matter of fact the
frightful catastrophes on the coast
of South America followed. In 1883,
M. Delauney again pointed to ap
proaching earthquakes, and soon
after the volcanic eruptions in the
Indian Archipelago occurred, by
which thousands of human beings
lost their lives, and hundreds of
square miles of terra firma were en
gulfed by the sea. Towards the
end of last year Jr. Delauney once
more raised his warning voice, and
the earthquakes in Spain proved
how well-founded were his warn
ings. Quite recently he has pro
phesied very sevcic volcanic dis
turbances for 1880. Having ac
quired a well-merited notoriety in
foretelling earthquakes, some weight
ought to be attached to INI. Delau
ney's utterances. He afllrms that
next year these natural phenomena
w ill be of a very intense character,
and that they w ill show themselves
either when the earth is under the
influence of a planet of the first
rank, such as Jupiter, or under that
of a group of asteroids, or at a time
when sun and moon are nearest to
our planet at the same time.
TRIFLES TURNED TO ACCOUHT.
Some women (says Embroidress
in the Queen), have a mania for
covering the walls of their sitting
rooms w ith trilling ornaments, and
the last idea is pattens, the verit
able wooden pattens which country
women -wear, and certainly find in
them the best protection to the feet
as far as damp is concerned. But
they are vastly transmogrified ; the
wood is painted one color, the
leather another ; they arc fastened
with bright colored laces, and a
flower pot put within the strap, after
they are hung against the wall. So
much that wo have hitherto con
sidered rubbish is now made a thing
of beauty, whether of perpetual
beauty remains to be seen. A useful
cupboard may bo mado with an old
packing case set on end, fitted with
shelves, and a curtain attached to
a small rod gathered across tlio
front. If you have any old cane
bottomed chairs which want re
caning, you may mako the beats
useful with thick colored wool twino.
Cut away the old cane llrst, and thread
a long, stout darning needle with the
twine. Knot the ends, loop it through
the holes backwards and forwards,
crosswnys from sido to side, light
and left, aud every hole being filled,
work them back again, weaving as
you would for cloth, so you must bo
careful not to draw tho threads very
tight for the first time over, or it is
more difficult to weave. Finally
press the pair of threads together.
If you arc a thrifty housewife, you
should have a rag-bag, and I will
tell you how to make oiio : Take a
strip of material the size of an ordi
nary chair-hack, linen of woolen
stuff will doj embroider it at one
end and fringe it, turn over the
other and work it to match, so (hat
two rows of fringe and work appear
one above the other. Sew a piece
of muslin at the back to make the
bag and some lings at the top,
through which run cord; hang it
Inside a cupboard, and put in your
rags. The Japanese and palm fans
are turned to all kinds of uses in
the way of wall ornaments, work
bacs. &c. Tho paper fans bac
satin bags over the lower part of tho
libs, aud two fastened together mako
a circle of color admirable for wall
decoration. One joined round, and
tho end sticks cut off, covers a
flower-pot well. Tho last use for a
palm fan is to cover it with plush,
bordered with gold braid, and in the
center to fasten a photograph ccigcu
with the gold braid. It should be
laid on cornerwise. The newest
way of trimming serge table cloths
is to put a corner of plush half a
square) as each corner of the cloth ;
embroider on it a spray of flowers,
and edge the whole with cord. I
have heard of flower, dairy, and
basket stalls; but I have never
heard of a bag table at a bazaar.
It is an American idea, and takes
well. You may have crochet bags
of twine or silk, with balls of string
inside, and scissors for the odds and
ends of string that accumulate in a
house ; bags for marbles, for opera
glasses ; school boy and girl bags,
for books and slates; shoe bags,
opera cloak bags, bags for bathing
dresses, for lawn tennis balls,
clothes bags, apron bags, bags for
dusters, fancy needle-work, bags in
plush and satin, and shopping bags,
12 in. long, 10 in. wide, lined with
silk, and drawn up with black satin
ribbon, a frill of black lace across
the front, and a spray of embroi
dery sometimes ; and of course there
are the work-bags made of colored
pocket-handkerchiefs, the corners
bordered with lace and turned down.
An old square washing stand, the
top covered with mill-board, and
this and tho bottom shelf with
plush, a strip of plush bordered
with fringe round, makes a music
stand ; and one of the old round
shaped wash stands holds a flower
pot well ; this should be painted
with enamel colors. A piece of
wood with a cigar box at one end,
having a place cut for the face of a
shabby clock, the shelf and the box
covered w ith plush or velvet, makes
a presentable ornament at a small
cost. A small barrel is a capital
receptacle for dirty linen ; have it
well cleaned and lined with chintz,
and outside cither paint it or cover
it with Turkey red embroidered
with sprays. It is useful to have a
pair of slippers always ready by the
bedside; for this our American
cousins have what is called a but
terfly slipper case. The foundation
is a piece of wood or cardboard,
covered with calico or chintz; em
broider the butterfly on Holland
lined w ith buckram ; unite the wings
by a body made of black velvet,
make the antennsu with wire, and
the whole large enough for the
slippers to lie in the bags attached
behind the wooden foundation,
hidden by the buttcrlly, the whole
to be hung against the wall.
An Englishman meeting an Irish
man accosted him, saying, "Can you
tell me the way to "Wigan, Pat?"
"How do you know my name is
Pat?" answered the Irishman, "I
gnessed it," replied John Bull.
"Well, guess the way to "Wigan,
then," coolly replied the Irishman.
