THE DEAR DEPARTED.
. . Nothing to onr bwni ws held Our pleasures - .'j
r- Just sTlittle while sr they an fled! - . , . ,
, One by one life rebs us of our treasures; '
Nothing Is onr own exo.pt our dead. '
' They are ours, and bold la faithful keeping,
.. Safe tnrever, all they took away.
f Ornel life can never stir that sleeping, -'
, Cruel time can never seise that prey,. , ,. .
Jnstloe palest truth fades; stars fall from Heaves;
Human are tbe great whom we revere: ,
Bo true crown of honor can be given,
Till ths wreath lies upon a funeral bier.
Bow the children leave us: and no traoes
Linger of that smiling angel band;
, Oone; forever gone; ana in their places,
Weary men and anxious women ttand.
Yet we have seme little ones, still ours;
Tbey have kept the baby-smile we know
Wbloh we kissed one day, and hid with flowers
, On their dead white faces long ago.
When our joy Is lost: and lift will take It,
inen no memory oi tne past ramaiai.
Save with some strange, craet sting, that makes It
, Bitterness beyond all present pains. -
1 Death, more tender-hearted, leaves to sorrow
Still the radiant shadow-fond regret:
We shall find, in some fair bright to-morrow,
Joy that be hae taken, living yet.
- Is love ours, and do ws dream we know it,
Bound with all our heart-strings, all onr own;
Any cold and cruel dawn may ahow it, -Shattered,
del oo rated, overthrown.
Only the dead hearts forsake us nsvsr, .
Love, that to death's loyal care has fled,
Is thus consecrated ours forever, .',,
And no change cab rob us of our dead.
Bo when late comes te besiege our olty;
Dim onr gold, or make our flowers fall,
' Death, the angel, oomee in love and pity, '
' And to save our treasures, claims them all. ,

Fiooas. Ths proportions of the human figure
are strictly mathematical. The whole figure
ia lix times the length of the foot Whether
tbe form be slender or plnmp, tbia rale holds
good. Any deviation from it is a departure
from the highest beauty of proportion. The
Greeks make all their statues aeeording
this rule. The faoe, from the highest point
tha forehead, where the hair begins, to
end of the chin, Is one-tenth of the whole
stature. The hand, from the wrist to the
of the middle finger, is the game. The ohost
a foorlh, and from the nipples to the top
the head ia the same, from the top of
chest to the highest point of the forehead la
seventh. If the length of the face, from-
roots of the hair to the chin, be divided
three equal parts, the first division determines
where the eyebrows meet, and the aeoond
place of the nostrils. The navel ii the cen
tral part of the human body, and if a
should lie on his back, with his arma extended,
the preriphery of tbe circle whioh might
desoribed around him, with thejavel for
oenter, would touoh the extremities of
hands and feet Xhe hlght from the feet
tha ton of the head is the same as the distance
from one extremity to the other when
arms are extended. These are the general
measurei of the species. - , . ., ' -

Sendent writes : A new game has been intro
ueed here, whioh to very popular. Let me
confess to yon I think it abominably stupm,
although it does require some sprightlineae of
mind to condense a tnougnt in a single bod
tenoej and as few eltlaens of ball-rooms think
it may be in this way uaerui, Besides oioaing
the gates for a moment on the flood of aeandal
and Ill-natured speeob.es whleh flow through
ball-room mouths, ana wttteu tney aignuy
with tbe name of conversation. The came ia
called "Bit of Paper." A half aheet of note
paper and a lead pencil are given to every
person in tne room. xaon person eecreuy
writes one question upon it, folds it four times
and nieces it in a hat. where they are all
shaken up well together, until they are
thoroughly mixed, men eaon person in turn
goes up to tbe hat draws ons question out of
It, and instantly answers it - -
Ne one la allowed to draw a paper until
his predecessor has answered the one the latter
drew. The better to enable you to com
prehend the game, I translate some questions
and anawers I have seen:
Questions Do you like Mademoiselle N.or
M. of the Vaudeville theater?.
Answer No. I don't like painted dolls.
Q. What's the uae of men?
A. Te keep women from sniolde.
Q. What is a funeral ticket?
A. Memory 'a embassador.
Q. What would vou give to the man you
loved, if he InsiiUd upon yonr making him a
present? , . '
A. Everything but ths eroias d'Aonnswr.

Wanna Natnaa'a Awnamt.Tht tffori to
writ ia nature's antidote. What we write may
not be of use to any body else, and perhaps
ought never to be published, but it ia of im
mense use to ourselves. The amateurs know
this: they have a craving for the pen. and in
one form or another go through the .discipline
which is essential to their mental oulture. Ben
Jonson used to say that be oould repeatevery
line that he had ever written; and every man
who writes with oare, weighing his worda,
and fully understanding why in eaoh sentence
he usea this term rather than that, ao that the
choloe of diction depends on the nature of the
discourse, and the nature of the discourse on
the aeoessitiea of the aubject, muat have felt an
arm roach to the aame nower. A It la more
blessed to give than to reeeive, so In the mere
aot of expressing our thoughts we attain to
more nerfeot nosteeslon. There Is not an
editor in the kingdom who doea not know what
ia the practical reault of this natural craving
for the pen, and perhaps the moat amnslng illustration
of it, whleh la accessible to the pub
lio. is the correspondence which appears in the
penny daily paper. Any body who will take
the trouble of looking at that oorrespondenoe
