the prisoner as iitt!e hurt as pos

break the terrible force of facts he
was compelled to relate.
In his partner's absence he had
employed George Gilbert as clerk;
had found him competent and
trustworthy ; had s-nt him on
trip to make collections ; on his
return be had acknowledged that,
after receiving a considerable sum,
he was induced by a respectable
looking man, with whom he had
casually fallen in. to join a social
game of cards; at first they played
for amusement, then for money,
and after losing all his own, in
hope of retrieving his loss, with
the fatal infatuation of that dread
ful vice whose end is destruction,
he had hazarded and lost the last
dollar of money he had in trust

THE fit,.IAN FEET.
How to Preserve and Keep Them in Gcod Con
dition--Corns and their Cure.
A pretty foot, sAys oethe, is
the one element of beauty which
deiles the assaults of age. If prop
I erly cared for, it remains as per
fect at seventy ag it was as seven
-To preserve the feet in a thor
oughly healthy and comfortable
state th first object of attention
should be thorough cleanliness.
For this purpose they should be
frequently soaked in warm or
tepid water, good yellow soap be
ing freely used to remove the
dirt and perspiration whieb ac
cumulate about them. Thbis should
be done, if possible, every day in
summer, every other day in spring~
and autumn and twice a day in
winter. The appropriate time for
the operation is at night, before
retiring to rest. About once a
fortnight the nails of the toes
sould be inspected, when each of
them that requires it should be
pared with a sharp penknife to
prevent them becoming incon
veniently long or growing into
tbe flesh. Their proper length is
that of the toes, and the shape of
their extremities that of the natu
Iral curve of the part. If they are
allowed to grow beyond the end
of the toes they are liable to be
forced back and distorted by the
pressure of the boot or shoe and
to grow into the flesh, while if
they are shorter or much shorter
than the toes,thbe extremities of thbe
latter lose their natural support.
It is highly necessary to the
preservation of health to keep the
feet dry, and to shelter them
from cold and sudden changes of
temperature. Persons who are
exposed to the wet or cold should
therefore regard sound and good
boots and shoes as of the first im
portance. In a hygienic point of
view a wet back should be less
shunned than wet or cold feet.
We may trace one half of the con
sumptions of this country to coal'
suddenly applied to the feet, by
which the sensible exhalation is
checked ; and it is not sufficiently
impressed upon the mind that
when once the regular perspira
tion fr-om the feet is ebecked it is
a matter of the utmost difficulty
to restore it.
Tender feet generally arise from
the neglect of cleanliness, the use
of tin cotton stockings, and boots
anid shoes that are either too
tight or stiff. The best treatment
of tender feet fs soaking them
nightly in tepid water, to which
a andful of bran may be added.
When the tenderness is extreme
-and persistent, a little powdered
-borax of sal-amumoniac should be
added to the water. In all cases

Fhe cominon cause of them is con1
ied pressure or friction on the
?rojections oft be bones from tight,
;tit or il-fitting boots or shoes.
Ihe curative treatment of corns is
Lroublesome and tedious. After
soaking them for some minutes in
warm water, to soften them, they
5hould be pared with a abarp pen
knife as close as possible, without
,ausing them pain or making them
bleed. The pared surface of the
corn, and particularly its centra!
and upper portion, may then be
touched over with any substance
'apable of'destroying the vitality
of the indurated cuticle, or at
least the part of it next the sur
face and thus causing it in a few
days to separate. For this pur
pose caustics or corrosives are
employed. Of these the most con
venient, and the one wast in favor,
is fuscd nitrate of silver or luna
caustic, The application should
be repeated every third or fourth
day, untill a cure be effected; soft,
loose shoes being, as far as possi
ble, worn during ti. e whole time.
Another method of extirpating
corns is the -appliation of a small
bh.tev. This will frequently raise
them, with the skin, out of their
beds. ancl permit of' their con
plete removal. The delicate ex
posed surface must then be dressed
with a little simpie ointment,

retained in its place by a slight

"Everybody knows how it has
become the fashion of late years
to speak of this relationship only
in terms of ridicule or contempt.
I wish to say that with the feel
ing that prompts such speech I
have nothing in common, It is a
mystery to me how a man whbo
loves his wife can treat her mother
with disrespect, or how a wife
who loves her husband can look
with an evil eye upon his mother.
"Oh, friends. the trouble is that
the hearts of children are not like
the hearts of mothers. In the
pride and joy and independence of
the marriage state and of paren
tal dignity the married pair are
apt to forget that they are still
children ; that the mothers love
has not grown colder ; that she
as not let go, cannot let go, until
death break the grip, the hold of
her heart upon the child, and can
not cease to feel that in some
sense the right is still hers, in
alienably hers, to counsel and di
rect her child. If the marriage
was with her approval, she has
just made another niche in her
bart, set, the new son beside her
daughter, or the new daughter
beside her son, and now they are
both her children. Both those
children, bound together, and sat
isfied with each other's love, are
drifting away in their affections,
tbeir tenderness, their dependence
from the mother's bosom. The
new son does not take the new
mother into his heart, lie has no
place for her. The new daughter
does not take in the new mother.

LOVE LAUGHS AT LOCK.
The freshest bit of row,at)ce comes
across the water and is as follows:
A Princess has eloped with a Duke
in Samoa. His .:el!aey, the Gov
ernor of the Tan 'Iasage District in
the Island of Upoln, had a charming
sister named Toe, with the coulpl,xion
of a baked . a cocoauut apron, a
necklace f b. rd's claws, arid a fancy
that was free. He was ardently at
taclied to her, and could not be ia
duced to consent to her marringe un
der any consideration, social or politi
cal. When Dulke Malietoa fell in
love with hnr the euurtship was con
ducted clandestitely, and eventually
an elopement was agreed upon and
carried into execution. The Gover
nor bethought himself of a b:t of
strategy to recover possession of his
truant sister. He sent a message to
Toe pretending to bo reconciled to her
choice, anDd requesting her to return
and be married under the baronial
thatch in proper style. The dusky
Lothario fell into this trap. Great
preparations were made for the oc.
casion, and Lord Malietoa, accom
pained by th3 fair Toe, set out on his
return, fo'llowed by all his relatives in
at imposing procession, bearing baked
pigs ln profusion, and timing their
march to the beating of tom-tome.
On Sunday the Governor feigned a
violent attack of gout, and sent a
message for the lovely Toe to hasten
to the bedside of her poor brother.
The unsuspecting one obeyed, but n,o
sooner :as she inside the Governor's
lines than she was bundled into a ---
canoe and conveyed to Sola Sola, in
her brother's domain. The distracted
Malietoa and his retainers remained
where they were bivouacked, assuag
iog their grief by gorging themselves
with baked pig and other delicacies,
not knowing what disposition had
been made of the missing bride. Toe
professed great regret for her folly,
declared that she had entirely over
come her love for Malietoa, and would
henceforth be a dutiful sister. But
she ha-1 not proved false to her lover.
She sent him a letter, and withi a
few hours a war canoe containing
seventy warriors, armed to the teeth,
put into Sola Sola. The faithful Toeo
had so arran'ged that the guard of old
women, under whose surveillance she
had been placed, should be out of
reach at the appointed Lime.' When
the war canoe came inside of the
reef she rushed forth, and without
tarrying to cast off her simple appare4
boldly plunged into the water, swazn
out to the boat and was taken o
board. Then she sank into the artr
of her lover.
SLOW AND SURE.-Haste in
making one's plans is less valuable -
than slowness and sureness in the
consideration, and all due speed -
and promptitude in carrying thenm
out. Hasty impressions of things
are as certain to be wrong as hasty
impressions of people; and that
half knowledge that results froma
a superficial scamper through
places is almost worse ti'iiE
knowledge at all. -Undue baste,
indeed, which must be confound
ed with energetic action -wisely
considered and powerfully per
formed, is a form of unwisdom to
be deprecated wherever met with,
and is sure never to come to
good ends. It is better to go up
stairs step by step with safety, if
a little s'owly, than to break your
shins by mounting two at a time
and tumbling over your own feet;
and it is better to come down at a
sensible and rational speed than to
make one stride, and that a long
one, from the top to the bottom,
with a broken neck or a bruised
back as the result of your over
speed. it is better to go quietly up
the mountain than to rush along at
railroad pace and lay the founda
tions of a beart-disease in conse
quence; and in all things "slow
