"A Laugh is Worth 4 Hundred Groans!"
We often moot upon the street
A friend It Is a Joy to (treat.
Whose kindly smllo and words of cheer .
Rid gloomy shadows disappear. '
He does not show the marks of woe,
Or of bis trials let us know,
Nor yet perform an actor's part
To keep us distant from his heart
When he is near we have no fear,
Or thought, that bo is lnsluooro,
So much of truiti Is In his friizo,
Po f ran' and cordial are bis way.
With mirthful charms be soon disarm i
Us of our sorrows and alarms, i
And says, in bright, electric tones: '4
"A laugh is worth a hundred groans 1"
We turn away to bid "Good-day"
To one who comes In sad errny,
With lengthened vNutto, mid tbo air
That Sorrow's children always wear.
There Is no mirth around bis hearth,
Ho adds not to the Joys of oartb,
And fulls to comprehend tbo Jokes
Of merry, laughter-loving folks.
His touch is oolil as churchyard mold,
Without a word his griefs aru told;
And few are anxious to attend
His steps, or own him as a friend.
Life's sunny glow they never kuow
Who thus in sombre livery go,
And ever stubbornly endure
Too ills a baarty laugh might cure.
Mnro blest arc tbey tho glnd and gay
Who scatter sunshine on their way;
Whose heads In grief not long are bowed;
Who see the light through every cloud.
The heart must bear Its weight of cure,
And of life's troubles hovo a share.
Of wbut avail theso mournful moans?
"A laugh Is worth a hundred Kroansi"
Tho interest shown in the droll doings
and amusing observations of littlo folks
Is proved by the success of recent works
on the subject. Most of xis have, some
time or another, heard children come
out with as cnmic:tl things as any, in
vented or otherwise, that we see chron
icled. Not long since a correspondent
sent to a provincial paper an anecdote
of tho kind referred to, of which his six-
year-old boy was tho hero, lie says:
"I keep a shop and sell fancy goods.
A gentleman camo in to buy something.
It was early, and my littlo boy and I
wero alone in the house at tno tirao.
The gentleman gave mo a sovereign,
and .1 had to go up-stairs to my cash
box. Before doing so, I went into tbo
littlo room next to shop, and said to tlw
boy, 'Watch the gentleman, that ho
don't steal anything;1 and I put him on
tho counter. As soon as I returned, ho
sang out, 'Pa, he didn't steal anything
I watched him.1 You may imagine
what a position I was in."
, A littlo ono returning from the "Zoo"
through Regent's Park, with a friend of

just seen, tho reverse of wild.

Six Hugging Machines in Full Blast.
Tho man who has a family of alwut
six blooming daughters is often looked
upon as a happy man. What a delusion!
Consider six new bonnets and six new
silk dresses every change of season.
Think of coming homo from tho lodge,
or somewhere, and finding six cigar
stubs adorning tho front stoop; twelve
muddy footprints adorning the hallways;
and six pug-headed canes ornamenting
tbo hat-rack. Imagine six hugging ma
chines in full blast, and a terrible six
ply quarrel in the morning, as to whose
turn it was to have tho parlor. Think
of encountering lovers in tho parlor, in
the hall, on tho stairs, in the dining
room, in tho kitchen, even! If this isn't
too utterly utter, what is?

How Cheaply One Oan Live.
Bread, after all, is the cheapest (Hot
one can live on, and tho best. A story
is told that shows just how cheap a man
can live when ho gets "down to mush,"
figuratively and literally speaking. Col
onel Fit gibbon was, many years ago,
colonial agent at London for the Cana
dian government, and was wholly de
pendent upon remittances from Canada
for his support. On ono occasion tlieso
remittances failed to arrive, and as
there w:is no cable in those days, ho was
compelled to write to his Canadian
friends to know the reason of tho delay.
Meanwhile bo had just one sovereign to
live ujon. Ho found that he could livo
upon sixpence per day, or about 12J
cents of our money four pennyworths
of bread, ono pennyworth of milk, and
one pennyworth of sugar. Ho nuule
pudding of some of the bread and sugar,
which served for breakfast, dinner and
supper, the milk being reserved for the
last meal. When his remittances ar
rived, about a month afterward, he had
five shillings remaining of his sovereign,
and ho liked his frugal diet so well that
he kept it up for over two years, possi
bly longer. Twelve cents a day is cer
tainly a small amount to expend for
food; but a man in Minnesota, about
three years airo, worried through a

We know of a theological student in
an Ohio college who, sustained by grace,
nee and corn bread, lived thirteen
weeks on 7; but thero were several
good npplo orchards near the college
and tho farmers kept no dogs. It is not
the necessities of life that cost much, but
the luxuries; and it is with tho major
part of mankind as it is with the trench

American Women ai Talkers.
There is no doubt that American wo
men talk fluently and welL But having
admitted that, tno rambling writer may
be allowed to say that ho thinks English
women use a simpler and purer Saxon
English than flows from tho lips of
American ladies. In England now it is
assuredly a mark and proof of culture
to adopt this simplicity of style; In this
country it seems as if pooplo, especially
women, tried hard to cultivate a lino
emphatic jargon. For example, here it
appears to bo thought a rude and coarso
sort of thing to speak of a man of educa
tion and position as a woman; you must
speak of her always as a "lady." Mrs.
Brown is a charming lady; Miss Black
is a beautiful lady, and so on. In Eng
land this phraseology is usually rclog
ated to the lady's maid and tho tootman.
Educated and well-bred English people
will always say: Mrs. Brown is a charm
ing woman. Ono had rather hear an
Euglish woman break into a littlo word
of slang, than hear her spoil our pure
and noble Saxon speech, so sweet and
homo liko in its simple, natural strength,
by ovcr-rt2nenient of langungo anil tho
spurious graces of a superticial gentility.
If tho astonishing flunncy-and brilliancy
of tho American woman s talk could on
ly find expression in the simple Saxon
which is now happily tho vernacular of
educated people in England, the charm
ing talker would have just tho one thing
needed toplaco her in tho front rank with
the conversationalists of the modern
Policeman and Millionaire,
Almost everybody at ono time or an
other has dreamed of what ho would do
if he were suddenly to become enormous
ly rich, but so few have actually realiz
ed their dreams that it is interesting to
note how far fulfillment corresponds
with expectation in the rare cases when
a poor man becomes a millionaire. R.
Robsou, an old policeman, who spent
six years in tho service of Joseph Hume,
has been declared bv tho Court of
Chancery the rightful heir of an estate
valued at iSO.WO, which has remained
in tho hands of the Ecclesiastical Com
missioners since the murder of his grand
father in Manchester in 1742. Tho for
tunate heir, who is now 72 years old, is
staying at an inn in Newcastle, where
he is pestered beyond endurance by the
visits of affeetionato and long-lost rela
tives whose very cxistenco lie had for-
f'otten, to say nothing of hosts of others
le had never met. Among tho latter
Claimants wero no fewer than three or
four ladies, who stoutly asserted that ho
was their lawful wedded husband, and
refused to be convinced by tho appear
anco of the veritable Mrs. Robson that
they were mistaken in their man. This
it must bo admitted is somewhat of a
noveltv. Every one knows that money
is sufficient to purchase "troops of
friends," but hitherto' not even a fortune
of 250.000 has been able to call threo
or four wives at a moment's notice from
tho vasty deep.
A Beautiful Hand.
A beautiful hand is an excellent thing
in woman; it is a charm that never fails,
and better than all, it is a means of fas
cination that never disappears. Women
carry a beautiful hand with theinto tho
grave, when a hcautitui iacc has long
ago vanished or ceased to enchant, i he
expression of the baud, too, is inexhausti
ble; and when tho eyes wo may have
worshipped no longer Hash or sparkle,
the ringlets with which we may have
played aro covered with a cap, or worse,
a turban, and the symmetrical presenco
which in our sonnets has reminded us so
oft of antelopes and. of wild gazelles,
have all, all vanished, the hand, tho im
mortal hand, defying alike time nnd
care, still vanquishes and still triumplis;
and small, soft and fair, by an airy at
titude, a gentle pressure, or a new ring,
renews with untiring grace the spell that
bound our enamored and adoring youth.

A Mouse in School.
A mouse camo near breaking up a
school in Connecticut, recently. Trot
ting about on the floor, the children
spied him, and a buzz of whispers called
the teacher's attention. "Now, child
ren," said she in a kind and motherly
way, "keep very quiet, every one of you.
Don't move nor say a word if themouso
conies toward you. Ho is perfectly
harmless." The scholars wero very
quiet, and watched tho capers of tho
mouse breathlessly. The teacher had
scarcely finished her bravo address,
when niousev ran directly for her, ami
began to walk over her feet. This was
too much, and the preaching was turned
into practice which refused to dovetail,
as it were. In short, tho teacher scream
ed and yelled wilh fright, and ran as if
a pack of reil adders wero in mad pur
suit. Tim whole school thereupon bo
camo uproarious, and the mouse was
master of the situation. The littlo fel
low was so delighted that ho stood up
on his hind-legs and danced a hornpipe,
leaving tho teacher nnd her tickled pu
pils in a peculiar state of mind.
