BY JULIAN A. SELBY.
Too Poor to Take a Newspaper.
An anecdote is told of a former
going one day to the office of a
New York journal and ordering his
paper stopped, because he was too
poor to take it any longer.
"Suppose we make a bargain,"
said the editor, "in this .way. Go
home and seleet a hen that shall
be called my hen; sell the eggs that
tho hen lays during the year, and
send the proceeds to me as your
subscription for the paper."
The fanner was pleased at so
easy a way to pay for his paper,
and readily consented. . The result
was, that doing the year the hen
paid for the paper twice its regular
price of subscription.
This is by no means a pure fic?
tion, for the same may be true in a
groat multitude of oases. Almost
every'one wastes and throw away
more than enough money during
tho year to get a weekly or daily
newspaper that would furnish him
with intellectual food, and keep
him posted in the busy, stirring
events of the day. A very small
retrenchment in the luxuries that
almost every one indulges in would
secure a' da?y visitor full of gossip
about tho doings of the great
world around us; full of stirring
events in the history that is every
day being made in our own coun?
try, and full of .useful general in?
formation, and facts iu literatures,
science, and art. Besides it is the
duty of the .people to support the
press, for it has always stood as a
grand bulwark between them
and political end military oppres?
sion; it has Bounded the notes of
warning that has often aroused
them to action; it has stripped the
borrowed cloak from corruption
and venality iu high places, and
showed them in all I heir deformity,
and is to-day the great friend of
education, justice, religon and
peace. The press speaks every?
where, at all times, carrying light
in places where othewise perpetual
darkness would reign. And when
we remember what the World would
be without the press?how dark?
ness, ignorance, vice and oppression
would flourish unopposed?let no]
one %vty longer say that he is too
poor to take a newspaper.
Tue MvaTEWEs of the Female
Toilette..-?The Pall Mall Gazette
says: "The latest novelty in wo?
man's attire does not sound com?
fortable. She has, it seems,
adopted a garment in which it is
almost impossible to walk or to sit
down) or to enter a carriage, and
which can only be worn by throw?
ing the body into the most painful
contortions according to instruc?
tions specially given by the
dress-makers who manufacture it
The Paris correspondent of the
Queen gives the following account
of' this new article of dress.
'Demi-trains/ says the correspond?
ent, 'are inconvenient for the
street and even for getting into a
carriage, and they are so tied back
and banded with elastic that
walking* and, above all, sitting
down are not the easy, careless
movement of yore. Some dress?
makers give instructions as to the
management of these demi-trains.
The best manner to gathering up
the train is to turn to the right,
bending fdightlv- backwards, and
to take hold of 'the dress as low
down, as possible with the right
hand. When you straighten and
stand trpright again the skirt will
bo slightly lifted, and thus become
no ? longo* than a short coei,?me.
When you wish to let the skirt
trail again yon must throw it back
with the fffifo of the right hand.
This will be found a much more
graceful way of preserving the
train from contact with the streets
than by lifting it on each side with
the hands;' Man dressed in a coat
or a pair of trousers involving' so
much trouble and agony would
hardly feel Hp to preforming those
duties which woman kindly pro?
pose to take on her own hands;
she is, however, very strong-mind?
ed, and delights in a life of active
