stuck fast in the multiplication table,
which could cot .be persuaded to stick

Indeed, a cold dinner was always part

City, Indeed! Rob thought of tho
tall, rcguliiriy-built housoj at homo, the
well-latd-out blocks and smooth pave

The houses', if houses they could be
called, were of all sorts wigwams, log
cabins, cavo-liko dug-outs in Ihusido of
the hills, and brush abetters, for all the
world like thoso built for the cattle on
his uncle's farm in the country, .

sagacity. Mr. Hundy. his master, had
several friends at his house, and in
speaking to them a'-iout Dandy, said,
"Hu teldoni fails to do whatever I set

The company were all anxious to sco

Harry, a bright little fellow, exclaimed.
"Fapa, I knor something that I don't
believe Dandy oan do,-' Then ho
whispered to his father, saying.
"Dandy mustn't hear me. because he
knows cverv word I eay."
Dandy looked as if he know perfectly
what was going on, and stood quietly
by, as if sure of his ability to perform
any task adt htm. Showing him a
handkerchief, his master said, "This Is
what wo want old felldw." nnd then
directed that he bo taken to tho barn,
Harry hid tho handkerchief under tlie
cushion of grandmother's cajy-chair,
and grandma promised to remain seated
in the chair. Then Harry ran out to
tho barn, shouting to Dandy to como
and find tho handkerchief.
Dandy trottedvup to tho house, rnado
a careful survey, and finally begged to

Hero, after looking around as boforo, he
at last placed his loro-paws on grand
mother s lap, and looked his wisn that
she should leave tho chair.
"Down. Dandy!" cried grandma. "I
must not bo disturbed to-day: go
away!" Rut Dandy continued his ap
peal, wagging his tail, and now and
then g'.vmg vent to a short sharp bark.
At length ho slowly walked to the

a snow, ami perfectly arranged.
Upon this bed tho dog sprang, and be

"O grandma," begged Harty, "do

But all of a sudden, Dandy changed
his course Jumping from tho bed
with a pillow between his teeth, ho ran
to tho hre-placc, and threw tho pillow
directly upon the blazing fire.
Grandma, with a scream, hastened to
save tho pillow, whon Dandy rushed to
thft chair, pulled out tho cnslilon, seized
tho handkerchief, an! rushed with it in
triumph to his master.
" Dear good old Dandy!" cried Harry,
and ho fell on his neck, hugging and
kissing him. Dandy very modestly re

Women nnd Ladies.
In tho days of our fathers thcro were
such things to bo met with as men and
women; but now thoy aro all gone, and
in their place a raco of gentlemen and
ladies, or, to bo still rnoro refined, a
race of "ladies and gentlemen," has
sprung up. Wonion aud girls aro
among tho things that were. But
"ladies" aro found everywhere. Mis3
Martineau wished to sco the women
wards in a prison In Tcnnossee, and
was answered by tho warden, "Wo
havo no ladies horo at present madam."
Now, so far as tho ladies were con
cerned, it was very well that none of
them were In prison; but then It sounds
a little odd ladies in prison! It would
seem bad enough for women to go to
such a place.
A lecturer, discoursing upon tho char
acteristics of women, illustrates thus:
"Who wero tho last at the cross? La
dies. Who were tho first at tho seul
cher? Ladies." On this modern im
provement wo havo heard of but ono
thingthat beats the abovo. It was tho
finishing touch to a marriage coremony,
performed by an exquisite divino, un to
nil modern refinements. When ho nad
thrown tho chain of Hymen around tho
happy couple ho concluded by saying,
"I now pronounco you husband and
lady." Tho audience stuffed their

Tho Leaning Tower of PJsa. i
Tho city of Pisa in Tuscany is ono o
thc most interesting places in Central
Italy. Tho city is built oa tho Arno,
which divides it into two nearly equal
parts. The cathedral is a very hand
some structure, and witli its attendant
buildings tho Baptistry, and tho Corapo
LantQ, or cemetery, afford example of
somo of tho finest specimens of early
Gothic architecture. But most re
markable of all. perhaps, is tho be'fryl
3 ! Of. tho cVhff'lral, oria it 13 better known,
Uio leaning lower ot fisa. it is to tue
cxisteaco of tho structure named that
the city of Pisa chloily owes its fame,
and the leaning tower was originally
placed In tho category of tho Seven
Wonders of tho World," and reaches
an elevation of about 150 -feet This:
singular structure stands itfan Inclosed
square along with the principal cathc
dral of Pisa, and within a few feet of
that building, as a belfry, for which it
was erected. At the period in which
tho cathedral wa8 built, tho year 1150,
it was customary to erect the belfries
apart from churches. Of this peculiarity
of early ecclesiastical architecture there
are many instances to bo found on the"
continent of Europe, especially in Italy.
But tho tower to which wc callattention,
irrespective of its being, in! connection
with tho cathedral, a noblo specimen of
mediaeval architecture, has always
rendered the town of Pisa famous from
tho peculiarity of its incliningat an angle
which, to a stranger passing under it
would sccrn to threaten its instant fall..
Indeed, there is considerable difference
of opinion amongst scientific observers
as to whether the structure depends for
its stability oa the well-knotvn law of
gravity having been complied with its
erection, or upon tho greater tenacity
of its materials. It is. described as
"consisting of oight circular stories, cf
whito marble, ornamented with rows
of columns and gra lually narrowing in
width from top to bottom." But if
opinions are dividud as to tho cause of
thc stability of ths structure, still more
are they divided as to tho cause ot its
inclination from tho. vortical lino. Some
attribute this inclination to tho subsi
dence of the foundation, or sinking of
tho earth upon which it rests; whilo
others contend that tho tower was built
expressly with its present inclination as
a specimen of the skill of the architect
by whom tho structure was designed.
Upon this quostion wo cannot venture
to more than hazard a conjecture; for our
part wo should bo more inclined to
adopt the latter hypothosis were tho
instances of such designs on the part
of tho modiasval architects more numer
ous than they are. But in view of tho
comparative variety of such, corwtruc
tions, it seems to us to bo traveling out
of ono's way to attempt to account for
so sinsmlarly an npparcut violation of
tho laws of physic3, as that presented'
by the leaning tower ot t'isa, upon the
assumption, of a set purpose on the part
of tho architect AVo must however,
iu candor, admit that tho balanco of
opinion is rathor against our viow than
A scientific observer remarks that tho
n'amo of this loaning tower docs not
convoy a true notion of tho form of tho
building. It is, he remarks in fact a
"twisted " tower, there beingan irregu
lar curvature iu tho building. But ho
conjectures that this twist" was dua
to tho subsidence of tho foundation dur
ing tho erection, and au attempt on tho
part of tho architect to "right" tho
building as tho work proceeded.
In conclusiou it may interest soma of
our readers to learn that " it was from
tho summit of this" celebrated leaning
tower of Pisa that Gallilco made, in tho
seventeenth century, a scries of obser
vations, from which ho deduced tho
