Advice to the Thirsty.

man exhorts as follows
" Here is a good autho~(rity-Albert
Smith. You miay possibly have heard

CtYmTvATION OF STRAwnERRIES UN
DERt QLAss.--Miss H. B. Yfrimble, of
West Chester, Penn., who has been very
successful in the production of hot house
- grapes for a number of years, met with
the loss of her vines last summer from
the ravages of the phylloxern. With
extensive green house and forcing facili
ties at hand, She dlecided to engage in
hle raising of strawberries and tomatoes
(hiring the period necessary to growy new
grape vines, and has the past wvinter
een remarkably successful in her new
venture. The varieties of strawberries
selected wore the Sharpless, Charles
Downing and Cumnberland, the planta
being placed in boxes, flye or six inches
in depth, which were arranged on the
shelving of the hot houses. The tomato
vines were planted on the floor and care
fully trained up the sides of the build
ing. Newv York furnished the best mar..
ket, the strawberries bringing an aver
age of $6 per quart, while the tomatoes
realized fifty cents per pund. The

the winter, the severity of the winter pre
venting Southern fruit from getting into
the rmarket as early as usual.

rhe Wealthiest Chinamam in New
Tom Lee is a short, slender man of
nodest manner, and of an extremely re
aring disposition, He Wears 'a stiff
Derby hat, into the crown of which he
>okes his queue. This causes the hair
)n the back of his head to stand out like
,he quillb of an angry porcupine or the
lair on a cat's back rubbed the wrong
way. He has a tiny blacK mustache, and
I sparse growth of wiry black hair on
his chin. He wears a diamond pin in an
old-fashioned scarf, and an eight-ounce
gold watch-chain dangles from the third
button of his waistcoat.
He is well-to- do; owns three tea farms
in China, and is worth a few thousands,
perhaps. He is a very influential mav
among Chinamen. He is a Christian, a
citizen, a deputy sheriff and is married
to a girl who was born down town some
where in that neighborhood. 'She has
borne him a lovely little daughter, of
whom Tom Lee is justly very proud. He
talks pigeon English, but he dresses as
you and I do, except that he wears his
queue. Very many among the 3,000
Chinese in New York retain their pig
tails, not because they cannot go back to
China without them, or because of any
heathen notion about them, but because
a good many Chinamen who were cigar
ette or cigar-makers in China have come
here from Cuba without their queues.
They were rid of those appendages in
Cuban prisons, where they were sent for
wrong-doing, and it is considered best
by respectable Chinaman not to cut off
the queue, so as to obviate the necessity
of explaining where and how it disap

While Paris is far ahead of cities in
the United States in regard to some of
her municipal arrangements, in othere
she is quite deficient. Her streets are
cleaned when necessary, as if by magic.
Let there be a snowfall, and thousands
of men will be out armed with shovels
&c., and in a twinkling the thorough.
fares are as free from the unwelcome
visitant as if it had never come.
But the fire service is simply execra
ble. Hand pumps are used, and they
will not throw the water with sufficient
force to reach the upper stories of the
immense buildings there. Some steam
pumps are employed but they are never
ready and it takes so long before they
can be upon the scene of action as to be
often of really little service. When the
Magazin dui Printemnps 4turned it was
between two and three hours after the
fire broke out before the steam pumps
arrived, and then the stream could only
be sent into the third story.y
It would make the Parisians open their
eyes somewhat couldi they see the celer
ity with which the firemen in our large
cities move. Everything is so perfectly
adjusted that al most before the echo of
the bell which calls them has died away,
the engines, hose carts and ladders are
mn rapid motion, and unless the fire had
got under strong headway before discov
ered it perishes almost in an instant.

The Sorrows of the Critic.
Criticism is as impertinent in the world
as it is in a drawing-room, in a kindly
and well-bred company if anybody tries
to please them they try to be pleased ; if
anybody tries to astonish them they have
the courtesy to be astonished ; if pople
become tiresome they ask someboy else
to play or sing, but they do not criticise.
A bad critic is probably the most mis
chievous person in the world * * *
and a good one the most helpless and
unhappy; the more he knows the less he
is trusted, and it is too likely he may be
come morose in his unacknowledged
power. A good executant in any art
gives pleasure to multitudes and breathes
an .atmnosphere of praise, but a strong
critic is every man's adversary; men feel
'hat he knows their foibles, and cannot
conceive that he knows more. His
praise, to be acceptable, must be always
ungualified ; and the heart of correction
which he has learned so laboriously, only
tills his hearers with disgust.-Mr. Rus
kin'., " Arrou, of the Chase."
Ladies, you cannot make fair ski n
