It is evident that the "JLock Lity

solidity aud substantial bearing about
the city which inspires universal ro-
Bpect. They make lew pretentious,
but are earuest and energetic.

Department of Etiquette.
It is a breacli of etiquette for a hus
band or ife to speak of each other by
their initial letter. When yau hear a
lady saying, "B., gave me this," or a
gentleman saying, "I always refer such
matters to Mrs. P.," you may rest as
sured, whatever their social station,
they are low-bred.
"Civility," says Lord Chesterfield,
"is particularly due to ail women ; and
remember that no provocation whatso
ever can justify any man in not being
civil to every woman j and tho greatest
mau would justly bo reckoned a brute
if he were not civil to the meanest wo
man. It is due to their sex, and is the
only protection they have against the
superior strength of ours."
Too great familiarity towards a new
acquaintance is a breach of etiquette
You are less likely to offend by being
TdTnotiee, by look or word, any de
formity, any scar or misfortune to the
or figure of a friend, is not only a
breach of etiquette of the grossest kind
but is a waut of humanity aud good
feeling as well.

most they wore needed i ine Leaar
jjg Jlcmilliaiii gives this intcrest-
iii$ recital :
A gentleman of this city, who for years has
been more or less under the infltieneo of
lidiior, and whose red nose and bloated li
ore slimmed him as an incbriute, had gou
home to his wife and children in his usual
condition. He was not unkiud in net or in
words, it was his delight to play at came
with his little ones, as he was able, aud to
entertaiu them with wonderful stories. U
this occasion the family were all together in
tlie sitting room, and tne usual games nav
lug beeu played, little 1-reddie, a lad auou
six years of ace. had climbed upon Lis fa
ther's kuec. aud was asking him all sorts of
bovish nuestious. He talked as a child will
of whit he would do when he was a "big
maul ' asked It lie would be like pniw then
and finally after a long and serious look in
to his father's face, with every shade of
cinidisii curiosity in voice and glance, put
to him this bewildering query:
- "Papa, when I grow up to be man, will
my nose be red like yours, and my face all
swelled T" Ah! why should that swollen face
grow reddwr than 'twas wont to be? Why
should his arms so quickly draw that boy
tolas breast f Aud why should tears flow
and voice tremble as he replied in words and
tone that made mother's heart glad :
"No, Freddie ! please God, you won't be
like me when you get to be a mau ; and nei
ther will your father, my boy, for from this
hour he will lend a sober life."
'He like him !" He had nnt thought or
that before, and the bare possibility tagrger
rd him. All the love of his father1! heart
cried out against such fate. That boy!
Iris uride 1 Koiuir about with a bloated face
and poisoned breath f No, no! he was on
prepared for that I Never before had he
seen his own looks so clearly j they were re
flected in the bey's the boy grown to man
hood ; and honor, ideation, and reason came
to the rescue. The child had preached a
seruioh no orator could deliver, and iuno
cencr and ignorance bud accomplished what
learning and logic had aiued at jn vain.
Those words "went home."
