CURIOUS OLD ENGLISH LAW,
Ah Eastch exchange says: What would he
come of about, one halt of pur femalo popula
tion were a law to bo promulgated anything
like the following, passed by the English i'ar
Uiment in 1770, and which should bo entitled:
"A Law Against Obtaining Husbauds under
False Preiences That all women, of whatever
age, rauk. profession, or degreewhether vir
gin, maid, or widow who shall, after this
act, Impose on, seduce, and .betray Into matri
mony, any ot, Mis. Majesty's male subjects, by
virtus of'scents, paints, cosmetic washes, aril
ficial teith, false huirySpanlsh wool, iron, iron
stays, bolstered hips hoops or high-heclsd
sbotss, shall ineur the penalty pf thelaw.noyr
in force against witchcraft and iike.misder
m5eahors;and themarringb, under such circum
stances, upon conviction of the offending party,
sbali be null and void."
SECRET OF BEING LOVED.
Wiiaiah Wjbt'jb letter to his daughter, on
the "small sweet courtesies of life," contains a
passage Irom which a deal of happiness might
be learned. He writes: "I want to tell you it
eocret. The way to make yourself pleasing to
others is to show that you care for them, Tho
whole world is like the miller at Ifunsfield,
'who cared for nobody no. not he because
nobody cared far him. And the whole world
will servo you so, if, you give them tho name
cause. Let every .one, therefore, see that.you
do care for them, ly showing what Sterne so
happily calls 'the small, kweet courtesies In
which there is no parade; whose voleo is too
till to tease, and which manifest themselves
by tender and affectionate JooUand little kind
acts of attention, giving others the preference
in every little enjoyment at the tabic, In the
fields, walking, sitting or standing.' , -
