twelve years the two sexes oontlnue nearly

acquire a decided preponderance. Thus young j
men of twenty average one hundred and for?
ty-three pounds eachi while young women of |
twenty average one hundred and twenty |
poonda. Men reach their heaviest bulk at
about thirty-five, when their average ls about
one hundred and fifty-two pounds; bot
. women slowly Increase in weight until flay,
when their average is about one hun?
dred and twenty-nine pounds. Taking men
and women together, their weight, at full
growth, averages about twenty times as heavy
aa they were oh tne first day of their exlst

. to two hundred and twenty pqunds, (the Tich?

eight to two hundred and seven pounds. - .The
actual weight of haman nature, taking the j

the late gales In Denmark, as they were ter
ribla to toe poor people wbo, with scarcely a
moment's warning, were overwhelmed by the
forcea of the Baltlo lashed Into mad fury by
the relentless winds behind. For two cen tu
rles past no such lamentable storm and inun?
dation have been known In that region as
that of last month. At Copenhagen the trees
on the town walls and In the parks were
seized b;-the wind and sent flying like chaff,
though the effect of the storm in the capital
was e thor lal mildness compared to the mad?

H nm min gen, a low-lying peninsula covered
with numerous houses and farm lands, was
swept away entirely; every person drowned
and every farm destroyed. The first appear?

that of a "white thing" Been afar off above the
crests ot the sea; lt came onward with dread?
ful swiftness, foaming, hissing, tumbling and
roaring, and then the terrified people saw
that it was a series of waves, the first of which
was three or four ieet high, whloh came on?
ward to the shore, and behind it still others
more towering than Itself. Tbe people es?
sayed to fly, and almost instantly were lifted
from their Ieet and swept inward with the
waves, which ruBhed over the meadows and
fertile fields, oonvertlng them Into barren

there bas been the same mournful story ot

What were Christmas without the children,
whose tiny footsteps, at this Jocund time,
lightest print the ground ; without the boys
and girls, from the dreamy babes whose
smiles are of the angels, to the lisping
youngsters over whose yearnings for the
great hereafter passes a shadow of the In?
finite whe? ce they came? It is they, the chil?
dren, who make the old, old feast eternally
fresh and new. Sorrows plague those
of larger growth. The haunting memories
of the might-have-been, of the work undone,
of the Kong round of care, of the youthful
promisa unfulfilled, of the flower-decked
moonda beneath the winter ekles-these
fill the heart to borsting, bringing with
them none of the heedless confidence which,
whatever the past, comes with a new-born
Thro ugh the tangled ekeln at Christmas
tide winds one bright thread ; the mingling
of strong yoong lives in the weary toll of
living. They lead the thoughts of tbe
elders, and mercifully so, from the anxieties
pf breetd-winoing ; they unconsciously give
hope where hope waa dead ; they refresh
the jaded brain and impart new canning to
the worn right hand. Sweet despots 1 they
demand oar every thought, and, in caring
for them, the saddened self is forgotten
there ls the rich and meet reward. Who
caa behold unmoved their prattling glee ;
their wondering expectation ; their merry
surprise when hoary Kr Isa Kringle, silently
stolen away, leaves behind stores of brlght
hued toys and of daintier gifts which dis?
appear before the coming morn ? What
words can tell the joy of the child who opes
the violet eyes to lind the dimpled pillows
weighed down with the gifts of loving
We were, all of os, children once. Let

Thu Hope Which Spring? Eternal.
Some lines in an article in Blackwood
upon t ie "Parisians" are worthy of public
attention. Tbe writer says : "Does not
"hiato 7 tell as that the great changes of the
"work, have been wrought by minorities 7
"But on the one condition, that the mlnorl
"ties shall not be hopeless. * * * j
"When a majority becomes so vas' dat in
"celled disappears lathe crowd, the.date
"of ita destruction commences. * * *
"It in the natara of things that minorities
'are always more intellectual than multi
"tndes, and intellect is ever at work in sup?
plying numerical force. What your party
j "wanta is, Hope I because without Hope
"there is no energy. "
This is oar case. There has been little
Hope and little energy. The intellectual
sixty have been palsied by the ignorant
ninety.. It is only necessary to have Hope,
and the minority will become the majority
by those mental processes and vigorous
work which are learned only by those who
are stimulated by being in the minority.
The Louisiana. Trouble
The address of the Louisiana Committee
to the people of the United States gives,
what we have not had before, a temperate
and truthful account of the origin and pro?
gress ol the troubles which have Oiled the
conservative people with dismay, and have
compelled them to appeal to. Congress for
protection. In the face of this document it
will be useless to cry oat that there was a
conspiracy to deprive the colored voters of
their rights. There are the facts. The
Kellogg party may disprove them if they
can. This, however, they will hardly at?
tempt to do. Their conspiracy ls for the
time successful. With the help of a disso?
lute j Jdge, and of the government officials,
backed by Federal bayonets, they have
thrust the Governor from office, and have
installed State officers and a Legislature
who vere defeated at the polls and do not
represent the people. The game is theirs;
but th e conn try will not tara a deaf ear to
the caJm words Of the Louisiana Committee,
nor are we without hope that Congress
will take np the matter and see that justice
ia done. This is all that the Louisianians
ask for. They ask that they be heard, that
their statements be investigated, and that,
when the whole truth ls known, such steps
be taken as will make secure the rights o?
It'?but not be forgotten that the Kellogg
party coald not have accomplished their
coup-de-main, except After an armed con?
flict, without the assistance given them by
the broad provisions of the Enforcement
act. Nominally intended to prevent any
interference with the colored voters, it is
used, as was certain that lt would be used,
for the oppression of whites and blacks
alike. While that law stands, and service?
able judges can be found, it is evident that
no Btttte is safe ; for, as the coarse of events
in Louisiana shows, it lies in the power of
an nnscrapulbus minority to usurp the
government and place in office just such
men as will best serve their purpose. What
has been done In Louisiana can be done,
with equal reason and equal propriety, in
the North and Weat. And so it will be
dono unless the people of the country com?
pel a change in the character of the Federal
legislation, Buch a change as will give the
colored people every protection, but will give
an equal protection to the whites, and pre?
vent any one race or class from riding
rough-Bhod over the other. There ls an end
to popular liberty, if the government of a
State can be overturned at the will of a
partisan judge. This is what has been
done In Louisiana, as the address o? the
Crying ? Wolli ..'
The Marlon Star takes a practical view of
I the situation. It says : "Let na accept our
"defeat In the State; for Governor MoaeB

The New Governor.
[From ths Darlington Southerner.]
We trust that with the inauguration of
Governor Moses comes harmony and pros?
perity to the State. All parties appear to
look to him to redress their wrongs and to
make the crooked straight. If he succeeds In
satisfying " many men ol many minds,'' he
will be a conqueror Indeed. He has a dif?
ficult role to play-one that requires moder?
ation, courage, and a determination to do
that whloh ls right In the face of prejudice
and passion. He, doubtless, does not forget
that there may be thorns amid the bays which
bind his brow. We hope that no needless
stumbling-blocks will be thrown In his way ;
that he may fulfil the moat sanguine hopes of
bis friends, and disappoint the evil prognos?
tics of his enemies ; and that In adopting, as
we are convinced he will, a conciliatory and
paolflo course, the whole people will unite In
sustaining him in every measure that he may
