The outside cover of the May number of
tho Century is quito as unique and striking
as those that have preceded it. It is a
design by Elihd Vedder who is tho artist
that secured the $1,000 prize for the prong

much criticised and objected to. Mr. Ved
dor's genius is of a peculiar, wierd and
fantastic kind, and if artistic, his women
are all decidely homely,

"The Last Supper," Leonardo da Vinici's
immortal picture, represented by a very
perfect photograph, and tbo excellent wood
cuts from tho article upon Leonardo da
Viuici in Scribncr of January, 1879, was
the subject of the study class last week.
Raphael's great masterpiece, "The Sistine
Madonna," will next be considered. "The
Last Supper," one of tho most famous works
of art, was painted between 1482 and 1439
on a wall in tho reflectory of a monastery
in Milan. It was painted in oil instead of
fresco, and was greatly injured by damp,
mildew and disfigurement by ill usage. Its
theme was sufficient to test the highest
powers of the artist it presentel the
twelve disciples, each one powerfully moved
by the announcement that one of their
number would botray their Lord. There is
no insipid ropitition, but great variety,
which still preserves the solemn tono de
manded by so majestic a subject. A care
ful analysis of this wondorful composition,
reveals a depth of power, and beauty, and
noblo symmetry, aliko worthy of tho groat
artist aud his divine theme.
In tho death of Emerson America sus
tains another great loss. Swiftly and silent

Miss Carey's first lyric triumphs were
achieved before hor delighted neighbors on
tho veronda of her father's house in tho
village of Wayne iu Maiuo. Sho was tho
youngest of Dr. Carey's six children, all of
whom wero gifted musically. The doctor
used to say of his young daughter: "If
Annie could bo far forget herself as to ac
quiro the necessary ease and abaudon when
facing our audience I think sho would sing
very well." "
One of tho most delightful magazines
for childron and a formidable rival to tho
St. Nicholas is wide-wake, an illustrated
ruftgnziuo for young peoplo published in
Boston. Its subject mattor is vory fine, aud
the engravings exquisite. Dr. Mary Z.
Salford has an excellent series of papers
running in tho wido wake, entitled
"Health and Strength Papers."
The remark of a lute, prominent teacher
in Esthetics that "we ought to live up to

significant whou wo reflect how very in
harmonious aud inappropriate it is to too
beautiful china with coarso ill-prepared
food upon H, or surround by ill-bred peo
plo who eat with vulgar, haste and voracity,
put food in their mouths with their knives
aud ignoro a proper uso of the napkin. The
effect of beautiful surroundings on manners
and conduct, especially of tho young 1b
most marked. Even to keep childron well
dressed will tend to niako thorn well be
haved. Bcautllul school houses aro known
to cxerclsu a most . refining influence on
school childron. Boys will be restrained
from throwing stones or cutting their
names or pencil markiug in a vory boauti
ful school building and grounds when a
coarso, common building and grounds will
seem to arouse the desire to mar and muti

lie buildings, free art galleries and splendid
parks of tho old world upon the charactor
of tho power and working class is well
known, and of as much valuo as good food
or clothing and shelter." U. E. 8.

It is related that ono distinguished
surgeon lately left a spongo, and another
a pair of forceps, iu tho cavity after an
abdominal operation. Yet another would
have left a largo seal ring in the samo
111 ace but for a gentle reminder from &
ullow-practitioner. It seerus hard that
surgeons uhould run the awful risk of
losing jewelry and InstrumouU by bow
ing thorn up iu tho vitals of their pa

ever, that the rule is to carefully count
the sponges aud lustrumouto during tho
progress of such operations. This is
well. It would bo a dreadful matter, for
Instance, if a man uhould have a couplo
