Importation ef Air.
To discourago tho introduction of
American canned meats Into Germany
tho customs officers havo contrive! n
three fold duty upon such commodi
ties. Tho meat is taxed for itself; tho
can is faxed as fino iron ware, and tho
labels aro compelled to pay another
high duty as chrnnm lithographs. Ap
parently to justify tho customs clmrgo
upon the covering of imported goods,
a llerlin paper relates how Alexander
von Humboldt onco took advantage
of tho exemption from duty of tho
covering of articles freo from duty,
formerly If not now tho rule In France.
In the year 1805 ho and Guy-Lussao
wero In Paris engaged In their experi
ments on tho compression ot nir. Tho
two scientists found themselves in
need of a largo number of glass tubes.
This article was exceedingly dear in
Franco at the lime, and the rate of
impost upon imported glass tubes was'
something alarming. Humboldt sent
an order to Germany for the needed
articles, and gavo directions that tho
manufacturer should seal up tho tubes
at both ends, and put a label upon
each tube with tho words DeuUche
Lvji (''German air"). Tho air of
Germany was an nrticlo upon which
there was no duty, and the tubes were
passed by the customs officers without
any demand, and arrived free of duty
in tho hands of the two experimenters.
It' What You Spend.
"It's what theo'll spend, my son,"
said a sage old Quaker, "not what
thce'll make, which will decide wheth
er thee's to be rich or not." Tho ad
vico was trite, for it was Franklin's in
another shape "Take care of the
pence and the pounds will take care
of themselves." Rut it cannot bo too
often repeated. Men are continually
indulging iu small expenses, Raying to
themselves that it U only a trifle, yet
forgetting that the nggregato is sen

Is a Dog a Wolff
Tho Anthropological Society of
France had under discussion, not long
Bgo , tho question whether tho dog do-
tcends from the wolf. M. Harbour-1
din said that he had brought up a
wolf that was uow six years old and
was as centle as a lamb. It was, be
side, remarkably intelligent, and
could open tho doors by turning the
handles. When it heard a clock
striko it would stand on its bind legs
to look behind, and would move the
hands round with its paws. It is
fond of perfumes, and lives on good
terms with poultry and other animals,
but has n great aversion for cats. Its
bark resembles that of a dog. . M. de
Mortillet, on the other hand, said that
he had been endeavoring iu vain to
tame wolves. They were gentle
enough so long as they were young,
but becamo savage at the adult age.
Emerson says: "Do not hang dis
mal pictures on the wall, and do not
deal with sables and glooms in your
conversation." Reecber follows with:
"Away with these fellows who gq
howling through life, and all the while
passing for birds of paradise. He that
cannot laugh aud be gay, should look
to himself. He should fast and pray
until his face breaks forth into light."
Talmage then takes up the strain:
"Some people have an idea that they
'comfort the ofllicted when they groan
' over them. Don't drive a hearce thro'
' a man's bouI. Whon you bind up a
broken bone of the soul, and you
want splints, do uot make them of
cast iron." After such counselings
