THE SECRET.
Id fair lady's beart once a secret was lurking,
, II toss',1 and it tumbled, it long'd to act out! '
The lips half betrayed it by smiliniiaua smlrklug,
J'lie tousiis was impatient tu blub it, no doubt.
Hut honor looked gruff on tbe mt'iect, and gave it
lu charge of Ibo teeth ao enchautingly white;

Twas saiil, and 'twas settled, ami honor departed;
To no lie quivered aud trolublod, but dared uot
rebel,
When right tolls tip, Secret suddenly started;
And, half in a whisper, escaped from his cull.
Quoth the trelh. in a pet we'll be even fur this,
Aud they bit very smartly above and beneath,
But tbe lips at that instant wore bribed with a kin.
And the popped oat the Secret In spite of the

A Xbvt Artificial Liqut in England.
An improved form of tho lime light
originally experimented upon by. Captain
Drumraoud, some years ainoe, was shown
j Sir Charles Bright in the Exchange
Newsroom, Liverpool, on Saturday last.
No substancial improvement has been
mftdo in artificial lighting since the
introduction of gas at the commencment
of the present century; and tbe steadiness,
continuity, and diliusivness of the new
light, as well as its enormous power, were
fully shown. A single jet of the improved
limo light is estimated as equivalent to
4i Argand, or 80 fishtail burners, eaoh
consuming live cubic feet per hour, or
to li'O wax candles of four to the pound
and its power, unassisted by a rellector,
was stated to bo 4l) times greater than the
present oil lamp; and for coast lights,
under the same circumstances, should the
light be as econoinioial and capable of as
easy manipulation as it was on this occa
sion, there can bo no doubt it will effect a
oonBidcrablo change in the lighting of
lighthouses, public rooms, large through
lures, and probably of factories and other
crowded places, where the present system
of extracting tho oxygen requisite for
respiration from the air is bo objectiona
ble. CoMPBOJIISED WITn" HIS CONSCIENCE.
The Lyons (France) journals have the
following: "M. I , a wealthy mer
chant of Lyons, lost about three years
ago a pocket-book containing three thou
sand francs, and though he offered a lib
eral reward for its restitution, he could
not hear anything about it lie soon
forgot the matter, but threo days ago ho
received a box containing three thousand
four hundred and fifty . francs in notes
and gold, and this letter: '.Sir, it was I
who throe years ago found your pooket
book. I was then a poor fellow, in
search, like Jerome Paturot, of a social
position, I at first thought of giving it up
to you, but l renoctea mat ttio money
would not make vou richer than you
ore, while it might enable me to prosper
in life. And so I capitulated with my
eonscionco. iiut I promised myseit to
repay you in tho event of Ood crowning
my efforts with success. This is what I
now do. llere is your money and the
interest it would have produced you if
invested. I am now tolerably well off,
having prospered in business. 1 am mar
ried, and have a child six months old. I

little follow, for though you have unwit

A Philosophic Egotist, A 'French
man, it is said, after having all day long
nuuntcred through his beloved Paris),
McetDg its many eights, and "habituating'
his usual and favorite resorts; in tho eve
ning relieved himself of hat and boots,
tneased his body in a dressing gown and
his feet in pantouiles, and seating himself
happily in his apartment, soliloquized as
follows: "Kuropo is, beyond doubt, tho
only civilized continent. Franco is,
(wtninly, the uioRt elfchtened country in
IOurope. Paris is, we know, the head and
heart of France. The tpiartier of Paris
that I inhabit, is admitted to bo tho most
lileguiit and perfect portion of tho city.

Misfortunes of Great Men. Homer
was a befrgnr; Terance was a slave;
Roothius died in jail, Paul Borghese had
fourteen trades, yet starved with them all;
Tasso was often distressed for a few shil
lings; Cervantes died of hunger, Camrons,
the writer of the ''Lusiad," ended his
days in an almshouse, and Vaugcles left
his body to tho surgeon to help pay his
debts. Jn England, Jiacon lived a life of
meanness and distress; Sir Walter Raleigh
died on tho scaffold; Spencer died in want;
Milton sold his copyright of "Paradise
Lost" for 7.1, and died in obscurity; Dry
den lived in poverty and distress; Ottway
perished of hunger; Lee died in the
streets; Steele was in perpetual warfare
with his bailiffs; Goldsmith's "Vicar of
Wakcfiold" was sold for a trifle, to save
him from the grasp of the law.
Physicians and Physio. It is a re
markable fact that "tho doctor seldom
takes physic." He does not appear to
have a very lively faith in his own art.
As for his alleged cures, their reality
does not pass unquestioned. It is true
that "dear physio always does good, if
not to trio patient, at least to the apothe
cary" but "it is God that cures, and the
doctors got tho money." Save your
money, then, and "if you have a friend
who is a doctor, take off your hat to him,
and send him to tho house of your
enemy."
An ArrnsciATon of Kisses. A senti
mentally sensible girl writes:
I am vain enough to pride myself on
being a girl of sense, ana dearly love and
appreciate good kissing should as lief
navo a nice sweet kiss as a cashmere. It
is to me one of life's sweetest enjoyments;
some of my happiost momenta havo boon
spent in kissing. A rioh, hearty kiss, from

lips will last for a long, lorg day.

A Eoi'huist Ctjred Homceopathically.
A boyish-looking youth officiates as
clerk in a drug-store, when his services
are required, behind the soda fountain.
A few mornings since, a fashionably
dressed, poetical-looking young gentleman
entered, and, seating himself on a stool in
front of the counter, in a choice selection
of terms requested the olerk to preparo
him a soidlitz powder. Clerk "with
syrup?" Customer (slowly and methodi
cally) '1 requirait not as a refreshment.
If the syrup vitiate not the effect of tho
compound, you may minglo with it such
an amount of the substauce as will ren

"I comprohend you perfectly. Permit
me to assuro you that tho tendenoy of the

minish tho purgative virtues of the drug."
Customer (indignant at observing that his
style is affected by the other "Then

and wisdom!" Clerk "With dispatch,
confoundor of fools." Customer "Then,
if not struok motionless, use haste." The
olork ovidently folt cut at the last remark
of the other, but the mixed powder, which
the stranger triumphantly swallowed,
paid for, and started to loave the store,
when Clerk "Should you find any un
easiness in tho stomach, within the period
of fifteen minutes, illustrious patron, at

duction into the draught you have just

Origin of Silk Hats. Tho "Nouvel
liste" of Rouen narratss the following
curious anecdote: "M. Botta, son of one
of the professors at the Academy of
Caen, an intrepid traveller and confirmed
archaeologist, one of the discoverers of
the ruins of Ninevah, undertook a jour
ney to China, and lived some time at
Canton. This was prior to 1830. He
used to wear there a beaver hat in the
European fashion, which suited him so
well that ho was unwilling to change it
However, when it was worn out, he ap
plied to a Chinese hatter, and, giving him
all sorts of directions, told him to niako
another like it. The man went to work
and in a few days brought a hat of the re
quired shape, not of beaver, but of some
stuff very soft and glossy. M. Botta, on
his return to France, preserved this curi
ous specimen of Chinese workmanship,
and wishing to have it repaired, entrust
ed it to a hatter, who examined it care
fully, and was much struck with its mode
of fabrication, which was altogether now
to rum. lie examined the article with
the greatest attention, and a short time
after the present fashion of silk hats came
in. The inventor patented his discovery,
and made a large fortuno, but held his
tongue about his debt to the Chinese
tradesman, who, seeking a substitute for
the beaver which he could not procure,
devised the plan of roplajing it by the
light tissue of silk, which at present
almost universally constitutes the outward
covering of tho modern hat We beg to
restore to the Chinaman, although some
what late, the honor due to him."
Uncertainty op Slave Pbopehty.
One of the Virginia darkies, who pre
ferred "chains and slavery" to "pikes and
freodom," came to his master the other
day, and said :
"Massa, 1 want to buy myself free 1
got treo hundred dollars, sir; 1 will pay
you aat uown, auu gib you de rest when
I mek 'um,"
"Very well, Tom," said hi.s master,
"you have been a faithful follow, and I
will comply with your wish."
J lie money was accordingly naid. and
tho inc'hoat freedom of Tom cotumouced,
A lew uays alter Tom went out to lisli
in company with a fellow Bcrvant; and
there came up a blow, which capsized tho
fishing smack and drowned Tom's com
panioa The next day Tom camo to his
master and said
"Missa, J change my mind,sar; I don't
want to buy myself any more, sur ploase
pay mo back my money, ear."
"Why, Tom," said his master, you
have already paid a large portion of your
prico, and, by industry, in your profitable
calling, you will soon earn and pay the
residue, find you had better carry out
your original intention."
"io, Massa," was Tom a economical
rejoinder, "I rudder hab my money

of the accomplished editor of tho "Aldine
Poets, 'relating tt Alexander Pnnn nnri

to be very large, and to include many
rare and unique pieces. Among the

since.
A Baron on a Treadmill. A good
story is old of Baron P , who, when
once visiting a penal institution, inspected
tho treadmill with tho rest, and boing
practically disposod, the learned judge
philanthrophically trusted himself upon
the troads, desiring the warden to set it
in motion. The maohine was accord
ingly adjusted, and his lordship began to
lilt his feet In a few minutes, however,
he had had quite enough of it, and called
to be released, but this was not so easy.
"Please, my lord," said tho man, "you
can't get off. It's set for twenty minutes,
that's the shortest time we can make it
go." So the judgo was in durance, liko
Hignor Ricoabooca in the stocks, except
that he was obliged to keep "moving on"
until his "term oxpirod."

Protection to Gas Gonsdmers in New
Yore. A bill isbefore the New YorkLeg
islature for the protection of gas con
sumers. It prohibits companies . from
charging for the use of meters; also for
bidding them from requiring advance
payment for luoje gas than will be
oonsuined in one day; also punishing, by
six or twelve months imprisonment, any
false record by the inspectors. This is a
good movement, and should be imitated
in other cities where tho gas monopoly
prevails.
