The amusement loving part of the citi

The last visit of Alice Oates, it will be
remembered, did not prove as satisfactory
as it should have done, not from lack of
talent, but because at the request of Cairo
lieojilc who desired to hear Pinafore, her
agent billed it for that night. It was not
in their line, and of course was not what
would be expected of such a troupe. This
time they play "The Chatterers,"

High and Low Heels,
Some time ago Mr. Morey devised an
apparatus for registering tho steps,
which he called an odogvaph. It con
sists of a small cylinder, rotating by
means of clock-work in its interior.and
of a pen which marks on the cylinder,
and is raised at each step by an Impulse
communicated by a ball of air boueatl.
the sole. ( Hiservations have been made
on a number of young soldiers. It waa
ascertained that the step is longer in
going up hill than in going down hill.
It is shorter when a burden is parried;
longer with low than high-heeled boots;
longer when the solo is thick and pro
longed a little beyond the foot than
when it in short aud llexible. It thus
appears that the heel may with benefit
Us almost indelinitcly lowered, while it
is disadvantageous to prolong the solo
of tho boot beyond a certain limit, or
give it an absolute rigidity. Some in
tluences which leugtheu the step lessen
iU frciittency; so in going up hill the
step liecomes at the samo time longer
and less frequent In walking on level
fTound tho length of the step and its
re)tiency are always proportioned; the
quicker tho walk tho longer the step.
Nature hero proves the lolly of the
high heel in a most practical manner;
and tho objection to them in men is
equally applicable to the ladies; and if
they could only see themselves as they
totter along erched on high heels and
walking as if stepping on egg-shclU,
their ludicrous appearance would at.
once stop the fasnion. Any one accus
tomed to country life and long walk
on the hills, must have felt the terrible
leg weariness which a day shopping:
