What is Eea pec table Society.
We heard a man, otherwise intelligent
enough, lately sneer at anothor "be
cause" stild ho,"one never moots him in
respectable society!" I he speakor did
not mean however, that tho person ho
affoetcd to look down upon was immor
al, but merely that his circle of inti
mates worn not composed ot tho fash
ionable and rich.
This notion of what constitutes re
spectable society, is quito a favorite
one with that class of individuals whom
Thackeray has so significantly called
"snous." &mpty pretense always
makos its own characteristics a stand
ard by which it strivos to measuro tho
respectability of persons at large. Iu a
community of more money-gottors
wealth is the test of respectability.
Among tho proud, narrow-minded, cf
fette nobility of the Fauburg SU Ger
main respectability Uopenas upon Do
ing descendants from ancestors who
have married their cousins for so many
centuries that neithor muscles nor
brains are left anv loniror to dosronorato
descendants. With the dandy oflie'ors
who constitute a considerable portion
of tho Amerioan navy respectability
consists in having sponged on "Undo
ham, in wearing cut buttons, and In
jilting tailors. Every conceited fool
thinks himself in liko way the only man
really weighty, the only person who is
lint truo respectability depends on no
such J.tdvontitious circumstances. To
bo respoclablo is to be worthy of re
spect; and ho deserves respect who has
most virtue. Tho humblest man who
bravely does his duty, is inoro worthy
of respect, is more truly respectable,
than tho covetous million aire among
his moucy bags, or tho arrogant mon
arch upon his throne.
Tho lino lady who backbites hej
neighbor is loss worthy of respect than
an honest wash-woman. The prolligate
noble, though ho may wear a dozen or
ders, is often not respectable as the
shoe-black who cleans boots. That
which exalts "the world" exalts tho ono
and despises tho othor, but it docs not
make them respectable according to the
real meaning of that world. Thoir re
spectability is but a hollow sham, as
they themselves frequently fool, and
thoso who worship them bow down to a
Fetish, a thing of feathers and tinsel.
The selfish, idlo drone, who wastes life,
in his own gratitication, and dissipates
tho fortune of his progeny, is not and
cannot bo rcsnoctable, but the hard
working, self-denying father, who wears
out his life to bring up his children, is,
even though he be but a day-laborer.
Nothing can make Dives tit to lie upon
Abraham's bosom, while Lazarus is wel
comed thore, even with tho sores' tho
dogs have licked. i
This false view of lifo, which would
mcasuro respectability by a convention
al standard, is totally at variaVico with
our republican institutions. IV creates
un "imporium in imperio," for while
tho law declares all citizens equal, it
erects a social standard which endeav
ors to ignore that great truth. The
coarso, brutish, knavish, profligate,
criminal in short, all who fall short of
their duty to themselves and thoir fellow-men
are those who aro not re
spectable; nud this whether they aro
richdr poor. Whilo thoso who live
honestly, and strivo to do what they
can, constitute in reality the respect
able class, irrespective of the fact
whether they eat with silver forks or
steel Vines. I'ltiUttc'iliia Ledger.
Hera Is a boy's composition on Fall:
This is Full, because it falls on this sea
son of the year. Leaves full, too, its
Well as thermometers and the price of
straw hats. Old topers, who Kign the
pledge in Summer, are liable to .fall
when Fall cider-making opens, for
straws show which way the cider goes.
Husking corn is ono of the pleasures of
Fall, but pleasuro isn't good for boys, I
don't think. Old men want a little fun;
let them husk. A husky old man can
go through a good deal of corn, some
times. Digging taters is another of our
Fall ainiiseitienU. The way I liko to
dig taters is to wait, unt il they are baked
nicely, and then dig them out of their
skins. Most. Winter schools open in the
Fall. Tho best Winter school I over
went to, didn't open until Spring, and
tho lirst day it opened tho teacher took
sick, and the school house was locked up
for tho season. Once in a whilo wo have
a very severe fall, but nothing liko the
fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of
Eden. Summer is misnamed. It should
be called pride, for doesn't prido go be
fore a fall?

Glass Eves that Boom Natural.
What's tho cost of a glass eyeP"
"From $10 to $15. Perhaps tho doctors
chargo more." 'Sometimes they move
like a genuine eye, do they not? ' "Oh,
yes. Surgical operations arc performed
on tho eyo more delicately than former
ly, when it was deemed necessary to
take the eyo out entirely. Then tho ar
tificial eyo was a fixed, glassy, staring
object. Now amputations of portions
of tho eye can be performed finite often,
and the glass eyo lilted on the stump,
which moves quite naturally. Some
people have several glass oyes with pu
jills painted in them, which aro of dif
ferent sizes, so as to represent tho dila
tions which occur at different times in
tho day. Thus n man will have a morn
ing cj'fli an afternoon eyo ami a largo
pupiled eyo to wear of im evening at a
party." "What colored oyes are tho
most soldP" That depends. In New
Orleans almost all aro dark oyes: In
Chicago and Cincinnati light eyes are
moro common.-from un lntcrvitw

Irish Bogs Eeclaimable,
The total area of bog in Ireland is es
timated at 2,8:J0,0(K) acres, nearly ono
soveuth of the entire surfauo of tho Is
land. Of these bogs there are 1 ,,"576,000
acres of fat bog, the remaining 1,254,000
acros aro mountain bog. Without en
tering into chemical d,et hHs, which, how
ever we are fully p'rqparod to do, we
may state as an uncontradicted fact that
nothing but well-directed labor is requir
ed to convert tho greater portion, if not
all, of that land, now waste into tho
richest pasture or corn land. Drainage
is tho first, and in many cases tho only,
requisite to effect this change. Burning
tho surface of tho bog after draining has
in some places had un admirable result.
Claying the bog by extracting tho cluy
which lies below and forms an impervi
ous bed. and placing it as atop-dressing
is tho method which has been followed
in other cases, as in our own Bridge
water levels, with tho result of turning
waste swamps into tho richest pasture of
hay-growing lands in the kingdom.
Whichever of these methods be adopted,
there is tho remarkable characteristic
that only labor is required. No more
capital is required than will sufliee to
feed the work people. Thero is a great
work to be lono n work so largo that
it is beyond the reaffh of any private
enterprise; it is a work involving im
mense national benefit. All neighbor
ing land-owners would be enriched by
the reclamation of this enormous bog.
The island would have almost a new
county added to its productive area. No
money need bo sunk in bog. It is only '
requisite to apply to it that muscular
force which is fretting iisolf into deeper
poverty and misery by enforced Idleness.
That tho proper mtxfo for attacking tho ,
bog is a matter for ready scientitia do-
termination, every Woolwich ' cadet is
aware. What is required is simply
enough labor under scientific direction;
and .when wo reflect that wo want tho
work to be done, as well as the men to
be employed, we think no unnecessary
strain would be put on convict labor nsa
solution to the problem.-Zowim builder.
Victoria at Windsor.
With regard to tho "relic-rooms," to
which allusion was made in Truth last
week, I understand that not ouly nt Bal
moral, but also at Osborne and at Wind
sor castle, tho suits which were occupied
by the prince consort have never been
altered in any way since his death.
Everything remains as he left it. Tho
rooms are kept locked up during the ab
sence of the court, but, as the queen
comes to each palace, they aro opened,
and lighted up every evening during her
stay,, At Wiudsoruer majesty usually
passes a part of each evening in thu
prinoo Consort's sitting room, his suit
adjoining her own, which open from tho '
graud ' corridor. Frogmore has been
practically rendered unavailable as a
residence, in uousequcnee of the queen
having closed up tho rooms which wore
used habitually oy the duchess of Kent.
This house was always an inconvenient
ly small ono, and the shutting up of tho
best rooms makes it impossible to acom
modato a family ana establishment
there, which, however, is not regretted
by tho royal family, as it is a very dull
place and exceedingly damp. Tho queen
passes every morning at Frogmore whilo
residing at Windsor. In summer her
majesty has tents put up on the lawn,
breakfasts in ono and writes her loiters
and transacts business in tho other,
driving back to thccastlo to lunch. Two
grooms are constantly kept employed
conveying tho boxes of papers from Sir

A Frisco Trick.
Of the many tricks of thoso who livo
by their wits to take in tho unwary, tho
"gold nugget pin dodgo" is tho niost
successful. This oft-practiced gamo
was played recently, upon a citizen who
prides himself upon being "no fool."
As he was passing the Baldwin hotel ho
saw a seedy, scmrospectablo looking
party, who was walking a few stops
ahead of him, stop, and stooping appear
to pick up something bright, .vliich.
when held up to lha light, was soon to
bo a nugget pin, evidently solid gold,
and weighing fully nn ounce. "What a
lucky find!" remarks! tho overjoyed
stranger to tho citizen, as ho gleefully
held it up for tho hitter's inspection. ,
"It's worth considerable," continued ho, ,
"and it's a windfall to mo, for I'm dead
broke. I wish I could sell it."
"What do you want for it," asked tho
unsuspecting victim, who thought ho
Bcented a chance to turn an honest pen-.
ay bv a neat business Btroko.
"Well, I don't know what it's worth. " ,
I wish thoro was a pawnshop open. '
Give mo $10 and you can have it." -e
"Ten dollars for a $'J0 nugget; too
much," thought the victim, and then
"Can't do it, remarked he aloud.
"Well, I nm hard up. Now, what
will you give?" persevered the Btrunger,
who appeared to hesitate to tako less. .
Tho slircwd citizen finally secured the,
pin for $4.60, ouly to lind when ho had
Ids purchaso examined, that it was a
good Imitation of gold, but, being only
made of. brass, it was not worm as much
as ho paid for it by $4.49. Tho victim
has cut another cyetooth and declares
that he would not buy a gold mine at
any price from a strtuiger. -8, F. I'ost.
The origin of farm-words Is one of the
most interesting of studies. Take, for
instance, the word . "farm," which Is
ono of the most familiar of our house
hold words. Tho estates which in time
of tho Saxons tho lords of manors grant,
ed to the freomon, wcro but for years
at first, with a render of a rent, which
in those days a cotemporary reminds us,
was of corn or victuals. Thence the
leases so made were called formes or
farmus, which nvord signified merely
victuals. In timo victuals were turned -Into
money, and terms of years to tcrnm
of life and inheritance, retaining the
rents, and those called quit-rents, or tho
rents of thoso persons that were free or
acquitted. . , , , . ,' , , . t '
