A Touching Incident "
When Mrs. Marv A. Livcrmoro lectur
ed Id Albion, Michigan, recently, at tho
cxmo oi tiio lecture an ciilurlv. white-
hsdrod woman approached her, with this
"Do you re mombor writing a letter to
wood oi UK) i2tA Michicran VoiuD'
toera, when ho lay d)lur la tbo Overton
IIoATital at Memphis, durins tho spring
of 1863, and of complutiui; trte letter to
bis wife and mother aftor ho hod died?'"
Mrs. Livcrmoro replied that she had
wrote to many letters during tho war,
coder similar clrcuuwtanms, that eho
oould not rocall any particular ciwo.
Tho woman drew a loiter from her
pocket, that had been torn into pieces
In the folds of the note and was then
Btltched together with finceowing cotton.
"Do you remember this letter?" eho
MraXlvennoro recognized her penman
efalp and admitted her authorship of tbo
letter. The first four pages were writ
tea to his wife and mother, at the dicta
tion of a young soldier who hod been
shot through the lung, and was dying
of the wound. Then she had completed
the letter br the addition of three rages
written by herself, beside the dead hus
band and son, in which she had sought
to comfort tho lonely and bereaved rela
"I think my daughter-in-law and I
would have died when wo heard that
John was dead, but for this letter," said
tbe worn and weary-looking woman. "It
comforted us both, and by-and-hy, when
re heard of other women pirailarlly af
flicted, we sent them the letter to read,
till it was tern to pieces. Then we 6ewed
tbe pieces together and made copies of
tbe letter, which we sent to 'hoso of our
acquaintances whom tho war bereft.
"But Annie, my son's wife, never got
over John's death. She kept about, and .
worked and went to church, but tbe life
tad gone out of her. Eight vears ago '
be died of gastric fever. One day a
ttttlo before her death she naid. 'Mother,
tf you ever find Mrs. Liverniore,' or hear
of her, I wish you would give her my
wedding-ring, which has never been off
my finger since John put it there, and
which will not be taken off till I am dead.
Ask her to wear it for John's sake and
mine, and tell her that this was my dy
"I live eight miles from here," con
tinued tbe woman, "and when I read in
the papers that you were to lecture here
to-night, I decided to drive over and
give you tbe ring, tf you will accept it."
Deeply affected by this touching nar
rative, not a particular of which she fa
sole to recall, Mrs. Llvermore extended
her hand, and tbe widowed and childless
woman put the ring on her linger, with
fervently uttered benediction.
A Valid Marriage.
A Maine Justice of the peace used this
ceremony at a mock wedding:
DeoMtb thH roof In plwmnt weather,
I Join thle man nd nukl together.
Let none but Ultn wbo rule tbe tnuri'ler
rut Uila man tol maid atmudar.
The courts held the marriage was legal,
and tho town had to support tho wile,
. who was abandoned by tier husband, al
though it set up tho claim tho contract
was a bogus one.

Tbo death of tho "Sage of Concord"
loaves a wide gun In the lield of Anicri

with whom ho hud been Htrotigly bound
in bouds of love for half a century
Longfellow has only just been laid un
der the sod, also at an advanced age.
Of all three might well bo said, in Emer- '

tkiuoa." Dctwcen Carlyle and Emerson tho Uo
Was doHO. Carlylo was tbe elder by
eight years. Emerson was 30, and in
the plonltudo of his powers, when they
first met Each could serve the other.
Emerson's "Nature" was eight years in
running through an edition of 500 in this
country. Carlylo got it republished iu
London, where he succeeded at once,
and Tony Iilackwood exclaimed: "At
last tho Americans have written a book."
"Sartor Resartus" could get no pub
Usher in London till Emerson hud it
printed hero, and Carlylo wrote grate
fully that he had received many dollars
from American publishers beforo a sin
gle English publisher dared to risk
money in the book.
Emerson's fame. In our day, will rest
' upon hi essays, and lectures, some of
which have been republished among tho
essays. Indeed, all his prose works,
except "Nature," might have been pub
lished under the general title of essays.
They aro brtmfuiof flashes of wit, Bar
caem, nerjws, and kindly humor. One
wonders that so dreamy a philosopher
oould have been at the same time so
keen ft critic of manners, so thorough a
man of the world, so full of hard com
mon sense, and such a master of playful
lie would have been a great poot had
be not preferred to write in prose. Much
of his prone, indeed. Is unrhymed verse,
Tho few poems he publUhed contain tho
true poetw lire, and graceful melody.
According W Mr. Lartlett, tho doud
philosopher had an erect, slender figure,
rather above tho medium height. His
appearance in life, though dignlfled.was
fery retiring, and singularly rellnedand
gentlemanly. His face had a thought
fol and somewhat preoccupied oxpres
, sion, with keen eyes and aquiline noso.
Ilia countenance lighted up with a rare
appreciation of hmnor, of which he bad
Cm keenest sense, but his chief charac
teristic was beneficence and courtesy,
which never failed, whether addressing
tbe humblest pauper or the most distlu

Do fis'aea Sloop?
Formerly it was the received opinion
that a fish never slept, but lately this
opinion lias been changed in "conve
nience of such facts as the following:
In one division of the Berlin aiiuari-
tini were about a dozen carp that com
menced in October to act seriously.
From time' to time the majority of the
fish, occasionally all of them, would as
sume a crooked position and remain
so for hours, or until they were dis-
W hen worms or other food were
thrown into the water they would spring
up to seize it, and immediately resume
their old position. These fish were often
very particular in choosing their resting-places.
Some would examine carefully with
their heads tho surroundiug rocks and
stones, then slowly turn themselves over
on tho right or left side, and either re
main quiet or swim away to seek some
Other lihh would lie on tbe gravel rest
ing on their heads and tails, m the form
of a Uw. Ouo carp always stood on his
head with hLs body erect iu the water
a veritable wonder of balancing that
showed the capabilities of its tins.
It was easy to arouse most of tho fish
by means of food or of a noise, but some,
of them slept so soundly that it was only
jMJSsiblo to disturb them by hitting or
shaking them repeatedly.
The lidless, always-open eye of the
fish makes it difficult to distinguish its
sleep from its periods of ordinary rest,
but this last experiment was conclusive.
Tho suggestion that this behavior is
the result of illness is answered by stat
ing that this habit of sleep was observ
eu nearly every day for more than six
months, and during all that time tho fish
ate regularly, and were free from any
appearance of sickness.
Tho Hindoo women, when vounar. are
deliuate and beautiful, so far as wo can
reconcile beauty with olive complexion.
Thcvaro finelv nmtinrtinrmd: their limhs
btnall, their features soft and regular,
and their eyes black and languishing;
but the bloom of beauty soon decays,
and ago makes rapid progress beforo

be accounted for from the heat of tho
climate and the customs oi tho country,
anu uiey are otlen mothers at twelve
years of age. No woman can be more
attentive to cleanliness than the Hin
doos; they take ever- method to ren
der their jsTsons delicate, soft and at
tractive; their dress is peculiarly becom
ing, consisting of a long pieeo of silk, or
cotton tied round the waist, and hang
ing in a graceful manner to the feet; it
is afterward brought over tho body in
negligent folds; under this they cover
tho bosom with a short waistcoat of sat
in, but wear no linen. Their long black
hair is adorm-d with jewels and wreaths
of flowers; their ears aro bored in many
piaoos, nna loauea wito pearls; a variety
of cold chains, strings of ocarls and
precious stones fall from tho neck over
the bosom; and the arms are covered
with bracelets from the wrist t the el
bow. They have also gold and silver
chains round tho ankles and an abund
anco of rings on their fingers and toes;
