A Laiy Han's TIctts.
Let us anal) ze this lyii.in bed a lil
Ue further. I maintain that, in the
mere fact of lying in bed, th?ro is F.ome
thlng healthy and recuperative lo the
system. The wheels of life an. oiled and
eased. The proper and legitimate pur
pose of stopping in bed id to go t bleep.
There is no tonic or mei-icine in tho
world like bleep. Tho more slcp the
bniiu eels, the better does the brain
work. All great brain-workers have
lieen great sleepers. Sir Walter Scott
could never do with less than ten hours.
A fool may want eight hours, as George
III. said, but the philosopher wants
nine. Tho men who hare been the
greatest generals aro tho men who
could sleep at will. Thus it was with
both Wellington and Napoleon. Tho
greatest speakers in the House of Com
mons hare been men who xn go lo
bleep as much as they like. This ex
plained the juvenility of tho aged l'al
merston. There is n man who has
been Ally. General, whom I Iiavo seen
bury his face in his hands over his
desk nnd sleep soundly until his own
case should come on. "Sleep," sys tho
Greek proverb, "is the rcmcdr for csverv
disease. If he sleeps well, ho will do
well." A friend told mo that his treat
ed himself for a fever. He wop c lo bed
with a larco pitcher of lcmouaMo bv his
side. II u drank ami slept, ulci.t and
drank, and slept himscU ell again.
When you take to your hud. cet all the

V . " ' ' , 1 ca room, cou-
iessiug inatyoti uavo iikii a most un
reasonable amount of sleep out of a sin
gle bed. You will have, a whole storo
of recuperative eut rg.-. Even if you
cannot bleep, still keep your bed. There
is no more pestilent, heresy than that
you should pet up immediately when
you awake. If it is the early riser who
catches tho worm, the worm is a great
idiot in rising bt"Jl earlierin order to be
caught. If you. do not sleep by lying In
bed, you get rest. You securu th'efallow
ground wlilUi will hereafter produce a
good harvest. Hlccp is of coin-so the
proper enjoyment fur a bed, but if you
don't sleep you can lie and read. I
den't believe that the man who gets up
really learns or does more than the man
who lies in bed. Of all the sleep in
Iho world there is none so good its
what you get in the way of treasure
trove, after the usual time of waking,
when in point of fact, you have given
up the expectation of getting any moro
sleep. As for "being called," as the say
ing goes, that is simply a relie of the
barbarism of our ancestors. I should
quarrel with any man who would pre
sume "to call" me. One of the main
beauties of an occasional day in bed is
that you. get an extra ilock of sleep,

Cultivation of Self-Hespect.
A child that is uniformly treated
with courtesy, with consideration, with
justice, will unconciously deem him
self worthy of such treatment, and will
become worthy of it, unless he ia by na
ture wholly base; and ho will uncon
sciously treat others as ho is treated. It
is a fearful thing to give a child the lie,
to accuse him of stealing, to accustom
him to unexpected and unmerited blows
and cuffs. IIo may merit punishment,
but tho wise parent never will admit
into tho household vocabulary tho ter
rible words "liar" and "thief," and vill

Marriage, Health and Morals.
It has been shown from statistics,
that in general married people hare
a less mortality than the unmarried
or widowed. Among the facts indicat
ing tho relation between marriage and
1 'ivsieal health, it has been proved by
M.'J.nisons, of Urussels, that at all ages
widowers are twice as liable to phthisis
as other men, but that married peoplo
aro generally moro liable lo this dis
ease than celibates. The law is con
stant for women ; with men it holds
good only before 23 years of age and af
ter 43. Such facts and their meanings
aro discussed by M. Bertillon in n pa
per following the cne on "Statistics of
Marriage." which wc noticed l-tcly.
M. Ilertillon goesou to show the influence
of the family btato on the morals. Not
only do married peoplo die less than
others, but they show less tendency to
suicide, to mental derangement, to as
sassination, to theft, or other evils or
crimes. Widowers coniinitsuicido much
oflcner than married men. As regards
"rime generally, they may be said to
rank between the single (above) and the
married(below). It is remarkable that
men who have families commit less
crime (including suicide) than those
(married men) who have not, and the
siime applies to widowers. The presence
of children recalls them, doubtless to a
sense of duty. The influence of child
ren further appears to bo greater than
that of a wife, and it keeps back mar
ried men from crime moro than widow
ers. In all soiial situations women are
found to be much less disposed to crime
than men, and the presence of children
greatly influences the morality of mar
ried women. Those who have children
show only about half the tendency to
crime of the others. Widows, on tho
other hand, seem to be moro often in
spired with criminal thoughts where
they have children than where they are
without them. Is this from misery, or
some other cause? As regards suicide,
lhe presence of a young family exercises
a peculiarly well marked influence.
Dcth in tho case of married men and in
that of widowers this presence dimin
ishes l-v about one half tho tendency
to com'mii suicide. Women are less
disposed to .suicide than men: but,
whether in tho married state or widows,
they show much loss tendency to take
away their own lives: where they havo
children than where fhey havo not.

A Pile of Lirlns Serpents.

of the blacks who formed the vanguard I
returned at full gallop, and called to me,
"Here, sir; come and see serpents in a
piled" IIo pointed out to me something
elevated in the middle of the savanna,
which appeared liko a bundle of arms.
One of my company then said, "This i
certaiuly ono of those assemblages of
serpents which heap themselves to each
other after a violent tempest. I have
heard of theso hut have never seen any.
Let us proceed cautiously, and not go to
near." When wo wero within twenty
paces of it, tho terror of our horses pre
vented our near approach, to which,
however, nono of us wero inclined.
Suddenly tho pyramidal mass became
agitated; horrible Bounds issued from it;
and thousands of serpents rolled spirally
on each other,8hoo'tiug forth out of their
hideous heads, and presenting their en
venomed darts and fiery eyes to us. I
own I was one of tho first to draw back.
But when I saw this formidable phalanx
remained at its post, and appeared to bo
moro disposed to defend itself than
attack us, Irodo round it in onler to
view its order of battle, which faced the
enemy on every side. I then sought
what could be tho design of this numer

this species of serpents dreaded some

having seen this enemy, they unite

Cultivation of House-Plants.
Professor Maynard says comparatirely
few persons who cultivate window plants
aro moro than partially miccessful in
their efforts. Among the reasons for
this want of success may be given these:
a Want of knowledge of the conditions
of plant growth ; a want of timo to caro
for them properly ; lack of lhe proper
temperature and a pure, moist alinos- children ; parents who cm afford it give

pherc. First, very few persons realize
that plants may Do injured oy too mucii
or too litllo wider, nnd foil toiindersland
whon the soil is too wet or too dry.
Plants, as well as animals, must have
pure air for a healthy growth. Those
persons who nro successful in growing
plants havo an intense love for their
pets, and scon learn to detect anything
wronr in their condition, and apply the
remedy. Second, plants require constant
caro. Their condition must bo closely
watched, and tho Boil not ho allowed to
del too dry, nor be watered too much.
Their condition must bo known at all
times: and if the green fly appears, it
must bo destroyed at once by crushing,
or by dipping iu tobacco water about tho
color of strong lea, or strong soasuds,
rinsing tho plant carefully after fifteen
or twenty minutes. If the red spiders
apjxsar, destroy them by fjionging the
under side of the leaf with cold soap
suds. Their presence is an indication
that tho atmosphcro is too dry. If the
mealy bugs are found, they should bo
destroyeu by touching with alchohol, or
by brushing off with a soft, dry brush.
If mildow attacks roses or verbenas, it
mubt be destroyed by washing or dip
ping in a solution of lime and sulphur,
made by boiling ono pound of caustic
lime with one pound of sulphur in two
gallons of water. This should be allow
ed to settle, and then kept in bottles
rcatly for use. In using it, take one tea
spoonful lo one quart of water. One
treatment in any of there cases lpay not
bo sufficient, and miift be repealed as
often as necessary. Eternal vigilance is
the only price of success. Third, ac
cording to the temperature required for
tho healthy growth of different plants,
they may bo divided into two clase&s,
namely : Those that grow well at an av
erage temperature of 50 Fah., that is
ranging from 40 to 00", and those that
require a higher temeralure,an average
of 70 ranging from 00 to 70.
The first class will include geraniums,
carnations, centaureas, camelias, azaleas',
abutilous, argeratums, callas, sweet al
ysstim, Eugluh ivies, suiilar, mignonette,
hyacinths, primulas, Btevias, petunias,
verbenas, lobelias, and roses. In the
second class aro begonias, liouvardias.
cpiphylums, nnd all cacti, fuchias, glox
inias, uerman ivies, iieiioirojic, zorren
ia?, pileas, and roses. Rcoes aro includ
ed in both classes, as they will succeed
well under both conditions.
Plants grow much better where the
tempera tore runs lower at night than
during tho day. It never should go be
low 40 Fah. in tI;o ut case, or below
50 in tho second case. If plants sland

A moist atmosphere is indispensable
to the healthy growth of plants, and is
obtained by keeping the pin iu tucfur

other vessel upon tho stove. The atmos

Women and Children as Drivers.
Is there not too much recklessness in
the matter of trusting women and chil

juveniles are actually annoyed by the
presence of those of older growth. Now
this is all very well in its way; but it is
a serious question whether there jscare
enough exercised in the effort to inspire
children with confidence in the use and
management of horses, A prominent
livery-man says that women and young
girls will hire horses from his stable that
.md experienced hand. Ho warns the
iilvciiturous females, but in vain, for
lhcy do not appear to know whatfear is.
Uehablo as a good horse may be, the
rider or tho drirer is exposed lo constant
lunger arising from the chance of a
noree becoming frightened and losing
all self-control. Painful accidents nro
frequently reported resulting from the
bad practice of taking loo much risk in
trusting a horse to a woman's or to a
child's hand. It is all right enough to
instruct u son ora daughter in the man
agement of the animal. But it is a fear
ful thing at times, to see a horse driven
nt full speed with the reins in the hands
cf a child of tender years, or of a deli
cate woman, who really does not under
stand what risk she is taking, or realize
how little it would take to change pteas
urable excitement into terrible tragedy.
