THE LITTLE ROBE OF WHITE
BY MRS. S. T. PERRY.
In a rosewooJ cradle a bat y lay ; ,
Its mother was 8ti.chinii,etitcIiiog away
On a little robo of white.
One foot on the rocker, she hoped to keep
Her frolicsoiuo baby fast asleep,
To finish her work that niylit .
Tn every stitch of the garment she wrought
Hint loving mother fastened a thought
Hopes for that littlo one
And smiled on her babe with a happy pride
And it slept in its cradlo hy her side,
- Till that littlo robo was dono.'
Then she folded up tho cambric and lace,
And kissed her littlo one's chubby fuco,
That smiled in its infant j;lce.
Sho toss:d it up and down in the air;
"How pretty you'll look, little babe, when
That new littlo robe," said sho.
In a rosewood cofim the baby lay
Its mother had wept the nilit away,
Watching its dying breath.
With it clasped to her breast she prayed
Her darling baby from going to sleep
' In tho cold, cold arms of death.
They buried'the tabo in tho garment just
Whose every stitch held a hopeful thought
From that loving mother's sight
On the marblo stone.sho wrraLwith a tear,
''How muny hopes lie buricdnere,
Jn that littlo robo of white."
In the Saviour's arms a baby lay,
From its rosewood coffin far away,
In tho realms of lovo nnd light.
The angels a garment had folded about
Its little form which will never wear out :
A seamless robe of whito.

THE FINE ARTS.
How to Sit for a Photograph.
It has become 60 universal a
custom for every person to be pho
tographed, that a lew rules ana in
structions for those who wish to
secure pictures of themselves and
their friends, will not be out of
Many do not get what they wish,
nnd go home disappointed, just for
the want of a little information as
to dress, &z.
It is not known to every one
that there is a lack of symmetry
in tho faces of most persons ; in
fact, scarcely one in a hundred has
perfectly symmetrical leatures, yet
there are but few who notice any
irregularity in the hundreds of lac
es they see every day, unless it an-
nroaches to a deformity. But, let
any one have a small picture taken
by a photographer, and the reduc
tion in size will make it more eas
ily perceptible, and the person will
then, for the first time, learn that
both sides of his face are not ex
actly alike, but not, perhaps, until
he has blamed the artist with mat
ing his face crooked, when the fault
was with his mother or nurse, in
alio wine: him to lie too much on
one side when a child. A close
scrutiny before a good mirror will
generally convince him that the
fault is not iu the artist, nor in his
camera. Sometimes the eyes are
not horizontal, or one side of tho
face is longer or fuller than the
other, and 6ome are afflicted with
strabismus ; but they would rather
have their eyes appear straight in
a picture, uhen it can be done. A
good artist sees all these things at
a glance, and knows how to reme
dy them, in. part, if permitted to do
so. Some persons look well in any
respectable position, but there are
more who do not ; ana most per
sons will make a tetter picture in
some certain position, than in any
other. With all these facts in view,
is it not unjust to compel an artist
to take your portrait in any posi
tion that you may fancy, contrary
to his better taste and judgment?
His business is to give you the best
Eosition for a picture, and has, per
aps, devoted years to the study of
his art, while you have not given
it one hour's thought. If you have
any preference as to position, it is
right that you should 6tate it; but
allow him to decide whether it is
expedient or not, and do not per
sist in standing when he says you
ought to sH. It is not every one
who can stand gracefully, neither
does every one dress tastefully or
becomingly, for a picture in that
position; and we are often com
pelled to mentally exclaim ;
"Oh wid some power the plftio glo us,
To see ourselves as ithcrs see us;
It wad from many a blunder free xa, -An'
If you Bit for a photograph, give
the artist an opportunity oi mak
ing the best picture of you that he
can ; and, after he hat done bis best,
do not insult him by saying that
uJt does not look a lit like me '?
You might as well tell him that he
knows nothing about the business,
or tllat his camera is in fault. If
you take a child to mm to be pho
tographed, do not be angry with
him because he can not keep it
still,' when you cannot do it your
self and, after trying half a dozen
timeB without success, and wasting
more time and material than tho
price of the picture, do not forget
to thank him for his trouble.
"When you sit for a picture, do
not arrange your hair entirely dif
ferent lrom your usual mode of
wearing it, and then say that your
IictHre does not look at all natural,
f you wish to know how your hair
will look in this or that style, con
sult your mirror before you go to
the gallery; lor an artist has some
thins else to do than to try experi
ments just for your accommoda
tion, even though no one else
should happen to be in. He has
his printing to attend to, glass to
prepare, chemicals to mix and keep
in order, and an hundred other
things to do.
lie sure, it possible, before you
leave your home, that your dress
is of a suitable color for the pur
pose. ; Blue, purple, pink, yellow,
light green, light red, and light
brown, will take either white or
very, light. Dark green, dark
brown, dark red, and dark orange,
will take very dark,
A very fair person may dress
much lighter than one who has
dark complexion ; but let no lady
deceive herself with the notion
that the use of cosmetics will add
to the beauty of a picture. It is a
delusion that has been fatal to
many a photograph that would
have been good, and not a few la
dies have wondered why they
could not get as good pictures as
others. The best cosmetic is good
soft water, well applied, with a lit
tle 'good soap occasionally. We
should have better complexions if
all others were abolished. We
never could see that they added to
any one's beauty, and if any think
differently, they know at the same
time that it is all a sham, and just
how much it is worth. But ladies
may do as they please, and we
shall not quarrel with them, but
they must not find fault it their
photographs do not look as clear

The Ship of Death.
Since the time when the Ancient
Mariner told the terrible tale of
the curse-laden ship with her crew
of ghastly corpses, no more thrilling
story of the sea has been related
than that of the whale 6hip Diana,
that recently drifted into one of the
Shetland Islands. A year ago she
left Shetland, on a whaling voyage
to the arctic regons, having on
board fifty men. From that time
nothine more was hard of her. The
friends of those on board became
alarmed. Money was raised and
premiums offered to the first vessel
that would bring tidings of the
missing ship, but all to no avail.
Hope was almost abandoned. On
the 2d of April the people near
Rona's Voe, in one of the Shetland
Isles, were startled at seeing
ghastly wreck of a ship sailing into
the harbor. Battered and ice-crushed,
sails and cordage cut away,
boats and spars cut up lor luel in
the terrible Arctic winter, ner
decks covered with dead and dying,
the long lost Diana sailed in like
ship lrom the Deadman's Land.
Fifty Men sailed out of Lerwick
in a bright May morning last
year. All oi the liny came oacK in
heron tho second ot April, tins
year, the same, yet how different.
Ten men, of whom the uaptam
was one, lay stiffened corpses on
the deck; thirty-five lay helplessly
sick, and some dying; two retained
sufficient strength to creep aioit;
and the other three crawled feebly
about the deck. The ship was
boarded by the islanders, and as
they climbed over tho bulwarks the
man at the wheel fell fainting from
excitement; one of the sick died
as he lay, his'death being announc
ed by the fellow occupant of his
berth feebly moaning "Take away
this dead man." On the bridge oi
the vessel lay the body of the Cap
tain, as it had lain for four months,
with nine of his dead, shipmates Dy
his side, all decently laid out by
those who soon expected to share
their fate. The survivors could
not bear to sink the bodies of their
comrades into the sea, but kept
them so that when the last man
died the fated ship that had been
their common home should be their
common tomb. The surgeon of the
6hip worked faithfully to the last,
but cold, hunger, scurvy ana ays
enterv were too much for him.
The brave old Captain was the first
victim, and died blessing his men.
Then others fell, one by one, until
the ship was tenanted only by the
dead and dying, one nignc more
at sea would have left the Diana a
floating coffin. N ot one of the fifty
would have lived to tell the ghastly
