The Influence of Poe.$
Poe1 like Pope, threw himself info a
war with dunces. Ho hit and thrust at .
them vigorously; ho exposed a score of
cheap ippularities ; lie wuas merciless to
the inexpensive reputations then readily
acquired b)y every tootler on the whistle a
of Miss Eliza Cook. Sinco the time ofb
Poe American literature has wonderfully -
advanced in the acquisition of force andl
polish. American novelists, for exam- F
pIe, almost give us lessons in careful i
elaboration of style, in reticence and iu J
well-calcula ted effects. Amerienn poets
are, perhaps, too numerous. That they
get a bearing as they do, and appeal t'o
a really-large public, says muiichl fo the
interest of the p1eople in contemupor-Wr
verse. In form, in the mere art of versi
fying, even the minor American p)oet4i of
to day show wonderful versatility and tIt
definess. Commonplace is much less It
successful than it was of old. In1 fictio.i
analysis is almost too careful. We caumi
tl(t bunt think that this rapid ripening of"
the American muse (who was a iraw, unu- il
informed school-girl in the life-time oIf p
P'oe) is duo in part to the influence of
that critic. His method is as unlike the
method of Mr. Matthew~ Arnold as pox-;
sible. But lhe exercised theo same kind
of influence. Like Mr. Arnold, heo in
troduced 8ome tinge of French thought a
and of French literature inte the work- ,
muanship of his countryman. Perhapse
he was not a wide reader, and the ole-a
meat of affectation in his niatulr may he t
detected in his qunotations (of (os'eure
Latin tiuthors and in his Oriental alli
sions. It is hard to say how much
knowledge was implied 'in these alhi1-"
sions-how rich the mine was frojm which
Poe dug these sparkling fragments.
Still, he judged the writers of his couni
try with some knowledge of other litera-n
tures. As ho was qluito ruthless in his
criticisms he (did good, bsut at hsis own h
cost. -London Nes.

The D)et of Children.
Permitting children to sitat table with
their elders is the cause of a good deal
of mischief and injury to their youthful
digestions. A variety of dishei should
never be pormitted, and any attempt at
wastefulIness shiouldl b) checked at once.
Economy anti self-deniial caln be taught
at the childrun's table far more easily

The diet of children can hardly b too
plain. If they need to be encouragred to
eat by the administration of d.amtiies,
there must be something radically
wrong somewhere. It is unlikely :hat I
that, some(1.ting iW Oonstitultional, more1'
probably insuficient exereiso is taken,.
or taken at wrong times, or the nursery
is st ffy, or tho >odroom bally venti
lated, or tho paronta have forgotten that
8unshlino and fre1h air are as necossary
to the healthy life of a child as whole
some food itself is.
The want of cleanlinesa, or frequent
uSe of tho bath, is many times the c muse
of indifferent appetite in clihilren. \ith

praved or absent, ain he grows up as
pale and poor as a sickly p1:ant.
I njudicious clothing is another can se
of dyspepsia. It is bad enough to en
0a0 the body which has attained its'
full developmient in a tight dress, but it
is ruinous for a child to be clothed in
tightly-fitting garments. Every organ of
a chihi's body requires room to grow
and expand ; if it be in any way c<mn
pressed, the circulation througi it be
comes lessened, and it is therefore
sicklied and rendered weak.
Tightness, therefore, of any portion
of a child's clothing ruins not only the
organ dir'ectly undi(ernleath the co)nstrio
tion, but indirectly tlhosp at a distance
from it, for no dinming up of the cir
culation can be tolerated by nat.ure.
Tightness around the waist in chibiron
