the most important literary enterprise this
century has seen, is being wailed lor with
curiosity and anxiety by hundreds of thou
sands. It is not gennrnlly known that a
first edition of !iOi,(M( copies has already
been manufactured in England, and 100,
OH'J copies are said to be already in Now
York City, not one of them permitted to be
sold. They are awaiting a telegram Irom
the authorities in England authorizing
their issue. The first copies can only be
had at thn extravagant price of $10" per
copy. The Literary Revolution proposes
fully to meet the demands which ils army
of friends are making upon it by doing pro
bably tin quickest work in book-making
which has ever yet been accomplished,
Arrangements have been fully made to put
the entiic book into type inside of 21 hours
from the time a printed copy of the English
edition can be procured, and within three
days nt least 10,000 copies will be bound
ready lor delivery to waiting purchasers,
and at lenst 5,00(1 copies will be manufac
tured every day thereafter, until the de
mand is met. It will he printed in law,

and sold nt the nominal piico of !I0 cents.
A. fine edition in halt Russia, gilt top, will
be sold for fio cents, and one in full Turkey

tho popular demand will be enormous.

Nym Crinkle's I'euilletun describes
the dill'erent types of stage kissing
from Abbot's spiritual ki.ss to Soldeim's
explosive) burst. It says: Thero was
the plutonii; kiss of Kellogg;, who used
to fling them like icicles with her linger
tips, un.l, as Sher Campbell once said,
there were ehiblains iu them. Thero
was the Presbyterian kiss of Ada Dyas,
who used to plant it on Montague's "left
ear, or on thebr.ek of his neck, and al
ways created uti impression in the gal
lery that she bit him; and the Iitta
btilible, which always sounded like tho
Hilling of ii cork, and seemed to bo a
number of linked kisses effervescing;
and the Corinthian kiss of Wainwright
a severe affair; somewhat motherly,
and when dropped upon a stock actor
always frightened ,jm (l nm,. ,itt as if
ho had ptuled a New Testament out 4
his pocket instoa I of a pa-'k of cards;
and tho Carey kiss ah! The romantic
Carey kiss, that never begun anywhere
and never ended that ran down the
b:u k, and tingled in the arms and legs,
and iiiado the hair stand on ond, and
was accompanied with laughter, whose
echoes were undying; find the cavern
ous SohleiM! kiss, that opened itA pon
derous and marble jaws with a report
like the bunting of an india rubber

A disngreeablt! woman i.s like a vacu
um: there is no place for her iu nature.
She is a parody upon herself. If thero
is a touch of beauty about her, she gives
those she meets the sort of a shock one
would feel on taking what appears to
Innately she very seldom is beautiful,
be wine, and it i.s in reality vinegar. For
in the true sense of the word. Nature
does not lend itself to shams. It is
pitilessly exacting. Sweetness of face
must re.-ult from sweetness of disposi
tion. The face i.s not a mask, but a
mirror. It reveals everything with ter
rible ingenioii.iness. Amiability is not to
be simulated to the observant eye. You
cannot stamp the marks, the lines, the
flowing curves of the agreeable on your
face, unless you have the quality in
your breast. For this rcaon the dis
agreeable woman is never really beauti
ful. Her features, at their bust, remind
you of etching's; tho effects have been
"bit in" by acids. The form of the
disagreeable in women aro infinite, but
tho effect of all is the same. Iu placo
of attraction there is repulsion; in
place of love, pity if not scorn; in
place of happiness, sour discontent.
J'lio disagreeable woman i.s irksome to
every created thing, including herself.
There is positively only one way to deal
with her turn her into a joke. Iu
that way she may be mado tolerable,
like the Frenchmen's slippers useless,
but just available as the basis of a

Sweet Peas in Hanging Baskets.
Sweet peas in hanging baskets sus
pended in the window are very beauti
ful objects. Their trailing stems and
bright foliage fall very gracefully on all
bides, and are of themselves very pretty,
and when the flowers nppear the cll'eet
is elegant. To have them bloom iu
summer and fall, the seed should be
sown now, in pots, and then bo placed
in a warm window or a Irani". A cor
respondent in f iurilt Hiiiy Illustrated
recommends sowing in four inch jiots
about twenty peas in each pot. hen
the young seedings are well up, and re
quire, more room they must be trans
ferred to the baskets, three or more pots
in 'neb, according to the size of the
basket, which should be lined with green
moss. Light rich soil is necessary.
While the peas are growing, liquid ma
nure should be freely uu'.l, and the bas
kets should be bung near the glass.
This will stimulate growth aud early
bloom. The variety of color and the
sweet odor of the llowers make them
desirable. Among the most desirable
varieties are the painted lady, violet
queen, ('apt. Clark, tricolor, light blue
and purple, black purple, striped, mid

Why a Wann Stablo is Cheapest.
A cold stable, sometimes no stable,
and exposure to the cold in getting
water are common things aud they are
very costly. Let no man imagine that
he saves any thing by not providing
warm shelter and guarding his cows
against cold. If he does not keep them
warm in any other way they will use
the food he gives them in warming
themselves. TI.ey will lake the neces
sary lax out of his milk pail as they go
along, or main a future levy on it to
replace the lo.-l tissue which they have
had to use for this purpose. It is much
better economy for ihc dain man (o in
vest in hemlock boards or double walls,
or even base burners or . steam heaters,
than lo allow his cows to warm them
selves by the consumption of food for
this purpose. Arlilicial heal is cheaper
than tint natural heat thus generated.
The gross material of fuel is cheaper
than the reliiied material of food, but
the cow will be kept warm with tho one
or the other so long us she lives. Tho
dairyman can decide which. Aincftoin

stones, representing the natural colors
of the rustic blossoms, seems to How
with the greatest ease and grace Im
aginable. The minute- poppies are
composed of rubles, the cornflowers of
sapphires, tho marigolds of topau, and
so on, while the leaves are of emeralds.
