ph I Isn't the country just lovely?
lo Iteceful and quiet unit all that;
It seems like a dream or an opera.
Of course dear, your new Watteau hat,
The one that ou wore as Maud Muller,
When to Cambrina, the artist, you sat.
Yes, we'll stroll for awhile amid Nature,
And visit each wild woodland nook;
Cull daisies anJ other sweet fiowerets,
On the banks of some clear, purling brook.
A pink sash?*No; blue is more rural.
No glovesl Why how odd you will look.
No doubt, dear, we'll meet with a shepherd,
With oures, and a crook, and a lute
hat h'ply like a very A pollo,
Andi be dressid In a greno ve vet suit.
H Is eyes will be big, sad and tender
Oh I bother! Please button this boot.
Just think of the brave, handsome inowers,
Who mnerrily warble their lay,
At live o'clock in the miorning,
To milkmaid.i, whose work is but play.
I've seen them so often in " Martha"
That-No, I won't writ-, that letter to-day.
And when, coming home through the gloam
We meet with the soft-lowing kine,
We'll deek them with ribbons and garlands,
With flowors their mock brows we '1 entwino.
I ktiow. for I've road, how they do It
When coming from pastures Alpine.
So these simple city maidens,
Who knew ooutiiry ways so well,
1 aving learned from books and opera
Mon than ever rustlos tell
trolled abroad through ficid and meadow.

Gathered disies, with them bramblos,

Instead ot timing lutes, be shouted:
"That ram'll butt ver. of he can."
They heart no brave and gallant mowers,

Harmony in Hunman ifre.
Our surroundings should be harmoni

to sound the same notes to produce
harmony. The word implies blending,
but it almost forbids repetition. Nat

and ends are consistent'wit h eah other.
Nature underslands too -well tihe art. of

not overstep hterself. WhJere the soil
will not grow lilies and ro(ses, she con

We have all hoed the Chinsse
charged with infantioide. WVe helievej
that crime to be less prevalent with t hem
than it is with us. I f child ren vre over
exposed, as has been seen on a wayside
st ar near Hlonam, we believe that bitt er
want and a hope that charity would
provide for the child better than the
mother could have been the movi ng
causes. As a govneral rule, self-interest
acts as the strongest~ bar' to this vice.
That the life of the male child ren~ should1
be preserved is most implortant, as the
Chinese law wvill compel the sons to
maintain their parents, and in the event
of all the sons dying no one would be
able to offer that worship at the tomb of
the father and mother' on which their
happines< iln another state is supposed
to depend. .With the girls preservation
is almost as important, and they are a
marketable commodit1y either as wives
or as servants. Indeed, it is no very rare
thing to see a basketful of babies sent
down from Canton to Hong Kong~ for
sale at prices ranging from $2 to $.5.
These are all girl". In denying the ex
istence of infanticide it is necessary to
make one exception. This is among the
Tan-kia, or boat population. These are
a race of people of dlifferent descent and
rellgion from the Chinese, governed by
their own mnagistrates, aln so looked
down upon by the other classes that no
child of a boat-woman can compete in
the literary examinations, or, whatever
his ability may be, become an aspirant
for office. This class is excessIvely su

by missionaries that when a child be

The old idea was that a piano was
bought and brought to the house with
much bruising of its beautiful legs and
much mutUed profanity on the part of
the draymen, to be played on. What
superlative nonsense! What a stale and
preposterous suggestiont Vhat a relic
of barbaric ignorance! A piano to be
played on! Go to.
'fhank the stars the days of such stu
pidity are over, and the true, sole and
natural use of a piano is becoming
generally inderstood. A piano i put
into a house for these simple pur
poses and none other. Its top is do
signed as a place for a photograph al

flowers. Its rack is intended as a rest
for an open book-an open book cov
ered with pictures of farm, and fene's,
upion which are perched innumerable
black birds. Its stool is placed thero
for the nervous young nman in company
to sit on and whirl, and writhe and
wriggle. Its richly carve I legs are
sprawled out for near-sighted and awk
'ward people to run against, and upon
being solicitously asked by the hostess
if they are hurt, to reply, with the hot
tears of anguish gusling into their
eyes: "Not in the least; only just grazed

out West got the manufacturing fever,
the citizens held a meeting to see what

ten acres of ground for a factory. An
other said the townl couhld adld '500,000

turn out and give 100 days' work oin the
building. A fourth said hie could piromi
ise a house for the superintendent t.o
live in, and a fifth wvould start a sub
scription pa per to buy the machinery
and boilers for the factory. D~uring a

A grandee of Spain is privileged to
wear his hat in his sovereign's presence
for a certain time, carefully graduated
according to his rank. John de Courcy,
the conqueror of Ulster, won the same
boon from King John by frightening
the knights seni by Philip of P rance to
call John to account for the murder of
Arthur, out of the field, and then giving
a taste of his quality by plajug his
helmet on a post and cleaving it
through with his sword, the weapon
defying anyone but its owner to draw it
out of the post again. This stalwart
champion's descendants were wont to
assert their privilege by keeping their
heads covered for a moment or so in
the royal presence; but at one of
George the rhird's drawing-rooms, the
then Lord of Kinsale chose to wear his
head-gear so long that the old King's
attention was drawn to his unmannerly
bravado. "Tie gentleman," said ho,
"has a right to be covered before me,
out even King .John could give hini no
right to be covered before ladies."
At the trial of Mrs. Turner as an ac.
cessory to the murder of Sir Thomas
Overbury, Sir Edward Coke ordered the
prisoner to remove her hat, saying: "'A
woman may be covered in Ihurlich, but
not when arraigned in a court of jus
tice." The accused tartly commenting
on the singularity that she might wear
her hat in the presence of God, but not
in the presence of man, Coke repliod:
"For the reason that men, with weak
intellects, can not discover the secrets
which are known to God; and, there
fore, in investigating truth, where nu
man life is in peril, an(l one is charged
with taking life from another, the Court
should see all obitacles reimoved. Be
sides, the cointeniance is often an index
to the mind, and aecordingly it is fitting
that the hat should be removed, and
therewith the shadow whieh is cast upon
your face.".' Mrs. 'Turner's hat 'was
taken off, but she was allowed for
modesty's sake to cover her hair with a

of a maristrate commanding prisoners
to pti off th'3ir hats. The Chief .ustice
inouired in return if hats were men

swered Fox, ''in the third of Danilo,

The Siummer of 1882.
The summer which according to theI
calendar has now closed has been marked
by some noteworthy meto->rological
Conditions. The month of June was
alarmingly cool over nearly all districts
lying between the Atlautio coast and
the Rocky Mountains, with frosts in fif
teen of the States frors the 1st to the
10th and excessive rainfalls in the great
grain growing sections, so that some in
dulged the prediction that this was to
he " a year without a sutnmer." Al
though the high temperatures of July
aid August dispelled . this fear it was
not so unreasonable to those who re
member the abnormal seasons during
the period from 1811 to 1817, when oc
curred the most remarkable depressions
of summer temperatures known to all
history of thermometric nmeasuremnents.
In 1816, according to several historians, J
"i here was frost in New Eigland in A
every month of this stiummr," and also t
as far south as Phila(elplia : .,ly,1 al- t
most. destroyin-.4 some crops, while in I
Enigland, as the oya! Society's records
show. the same sununer was cold
enourgh to make 1816 "a famine year."
It is to be hoped that, as no similarly
cold summer has since then been known
in aInIy part of the United States, it will
never recur, but it may be rash to say it
is impossible. If we except New En
gland, where great aridity has prevailed
since .Juzne, lie past summer has been y
exception ally free fromi protracted and t
inten'dlroughuts, and in the interior of a
the countMr, where severe summer
drought is the climatic rule, precipita
tion has been rather excessive than defia
One of the most noticeable character
istics of the Season just ended is the
ab.ls -nec of the usual July and August i
hurricanes in the West India seas, and
conuseqiently there have been few dis
turhnces on our Atlantic and Gulf
coasts. The passage of these storms
along our Easterncoasts no doubt great
ly modifies the atmospheric conditions
oil the continent. Drawing toward
them the moisture of the air for hun
dreuls of miles from their tracks, and
condensing it in immense quantities in
their central areas, they must leave the
Middle latitudes cons derably drained
ot tie watery vapor accuiula'ted by the
sun's long continued evaporative force
on the warmi ocean. The absence of
these storms may in part account for
the recent redu nlant rainfall an hiu
midity ;n the Gulf States and on the At
lantie seaboard, and it is probable if we
should shortly have a visit f. om1 a pow
erful tropic hurrcane, which is very
probab0e, there would be anit early and
sbarp turn of the seaon. No Amenri

A New Statue of Washzington.
The colossal bronze statue of Wash
ington, which is to be placed in Fair
mnounit Park by the Society of Cincinnati
of Philadelphia, is tohave a sub~strue
ture of granite with two great terraces.
The sides of the lower terrace are
to be covered with bronze relievos,
in which groups of animals and
human figures larger thant life are
shown. The animals are to be typical
American beasts, and will be pieced ini
recumbent positions. Ini thme midst of
the groups wvill be an Indiau warrior and
squaw, a river god and a river goddess.
On the upper terrace the pedestal will
stand. The figures of the horse anid
rider which it will support wilml bec twice
the ordinary size. Washtington wili be
represented in uniform, with a military
cloak thrown over the shoulder.
The right hand grasps a field
glass, while the left holds the bridle
rein. Thme sides of the bronze pedestal
wvill represent allegorical figures of the e
troops dleparting for war, the return anid
tie lessin~gs of peace. Professor Ru-(
dolph Siemerinug, the German sculptor,
to whom the contract for a statue was 1
awarded, has completed the miniature
model of the monument, and has begun
work in Berlin upon the full-sized figure,
from which the cast will be made. The
cost when completed will be $140,000.

How Can You Tell a Good Cigar I
Trhey used to say thant a good cigar
couild lie known by thme Jight brown
specks on it. These were made by
wrnms, the story was, and the worm's
'wre epicures in tobacco and would
touch only the best. Bunt the chemists
soon found a way of simulating thesec
worm specks. So that spoiled the test.
Then there was no other gnide but the
ashes. If these burned white the cigar
wats good ; if not, bad. But the enter
prising tobacconists soon found a way to
make the vilest cabbamgenia burn as spot-'
lessly white as the best Havana. An-1
other test gone. Finally the makers of
choice cigars put a little red label around
each. This was thought to be'something I

Thlie Board of Education has adopted
blcGuffey's Readers, as will be seen from
heir notice in to-day's paper. After
xperimenting with two other series
hey come back to McGuffey's with tilt
~onviction that in all essentials of a
eader they never have been surpassed
mid never will b~e. In this they are suo
~ained by the action of Richmond, Pe
ersburg, Lynchiburg, and the largeit
~ities in the United States. Albemarle
md Rockbridge counties, Charlottes
rille, Lexington and Staunton, the
treat centres of higher education in
Virginia have adopted McGuflev.
Along the Midland and Western Rail
roads, county after county has come
back to McGuffey with a unanimity
that would be incomprehlensible did we
riot know the book.
From Danville to Alexandria, from
Bristol to Norfolk, every county, but
Four or five, has acted, and every one
'hanged the series in use for McGufley.
And this action is based in every in
~tance on the recommendation of the
eading professional teachers of each
sounty without consultation with those
>f any other. Indleed. we find McGuf
~ey on the lists of New York and Brook
yn inl the East; exclusively used by
San Francisco i-n the Wecst; leadling all
>thers in Missouri and Wisconsin on the
Northi, and exclusively used in Louis
atna in the South, and St. Lozis and
Jinemnauti in the centre. Thus they
ire truly National in character, andl
imparalleled ill success.
Every Virginian feels a pridle in the
uccess of McGuffey's readers. D)urine

To Mr. J. W. Graham, Druggists:
Dear Str-My .case was an acute form of Bron
chitis, and was of one and a half year's duration.
I employed the beat medical aid possible, but failed
rapidly, until the doctors said I would die-that my
case was lcurable. Thrown upon my own resourses
I got a .bottle of DR. WM. HALL'S BALSAM
FOR THE LUNGS, and In six hours felt a decided
relief. In threo days the cough almost disappeared.
Now that my chances of life are good for many years,
I earnestly recommend the above to every sufferer
of throat or luig disease. C. G. LATH ROP.
