I Cardinal Principles of Reading-.
In choice of reading there are two car
dinal principles which should ever be borne
in mind first, that it is necessary to keep
j fairly abreast of the principal thoughts and
news of the time, and, second, that it is
essentia, in order to a right estimate of
present events, to cull at any rate some of
the choicest flowers of the literature and
history of the past. To keep fairly apace
with the general thought and news, news
papers and magazines are indispensable,
though too much attention cannot be paid
to Emerson's advice in this regard to
learn the art of quickly and profitably as
similating their contents. To be forever
wrapped up in a newspaper and to depend
entirely upon it for mental sustenance is
truly a humiliating position for people
"heirs of all ages, foremost in the ranks of
time." But it is a common one, for there
are thousands who, never reading any
thing else, are content to let their intellects
starve in the midst of plenty. It is indeed
this very plenty which is so embarrassing.
The second principle that has been indi
catedthat it is necessary to obtain a well
proportioned view of present events in
volves the reading of history, biography,
philosophy and Action. It is a striking
comment on the prevalence of popular ig
norance that a sensational murder will pro
vide a month's topic for conversation, while
the publication of a profound work which
is the result of long years of toil will pass
unheeded. A people educated by reading
mat wnicn would give them a just sense of
proportion could not fail to discriminate
between the relative importance of the two
events. For this purpose English litera
ture is admirably adapted. Lord Macaulay
averring thet tnere is in the English clas
sics a body of teaching power which the
literature of Greece and Rome cannot rival.
"No people has on the whole written so
much and so well," says the P.ev. Stopford
Brooke; "no people can point to so long
and so splendid a train of poets and prose
writers." Chambers' Journal.
Kelervnces on Both Sides.
In the Westminster Gazette the other day
appeared a lively little dialogue in which a
servant on being engaged demanded in her
tarn a reference as to her employer's char
acter. Why not? A servant runs many
dangers in entering an unknown house.
She may find herself under a mistress of
harsh temper, suspicious, niggardly, fidg
ety, exacting, whose moods she must en
dure or she may have her character blasted
for life by that woman's malignity. But
there are even worse dangers. She may
find herself in the company of people thor
oughly bad, lawless, depraved, and so may
lose her character almost irretrievably.
The mistress in the dialogue is represent
ed as stricken speechless with rage. Well,
but why? Iam credibly informed that no
servant goes into a strange house if she can
help it without ascertaining the character
of the mistress from theoutgoing occupant
of the position. You see, ladies, when you
allow your maid to open the door to the
applicant you give yourself away. It is
done in a few words: "A stingy devil.
Horrid temper. Nasty, suspicious cat, al
ways prying and poking about. You won't
stay long." Or "She's a good sort, and I'm
sorry to go. Wouldn't go if I wasn't to be
married.' Perhaps it would be well to
make a virtue of necessity. The dialogue
should have ended something as follows:
"Your name is Martha Rollingpin. Well,
I like your manners, aud if your reference
speaks well of you I will give you a trial.
You will nrobablv like a refeririro
gards myself. The cook who is leaving
will answer questions you wish" to put.
You will find her in the kitchen. I hope,
Martha, that the rhnntrlrr
will lead to a lasting engagement and to
muiuai esteem, troou morning to you."
The Talte of the Ostrich.
The dance of the ostrich is one of those
peculiar native customs which certain
fowls develoD. withont mr
' J xsrjnH VUW a 14

ty, usually occurs at early morning,
when the vounc. strone MirU AN 1if tint r-1
their enclosure, and is said to be entirely
uue io awKwaraness ana uncertainty. This
leads them to advance and turn in a der
rishlike whirl which is very quaint and fan
tastic, as they float alxrat assisting their
motions by their outspread wings. They
circle and reverse almost as a waltzer
would, and when a large number of these
strange birds go through their dancing an
tics, it is almost Impossible to believe that
they have not been taught the accomplish
ment by a dancing master. Their waltz
often ends in disaster, as they break each
other's legs, which is certain death, or be
come dizzy and fall down in a demoralized
heap. The kick of an ostrich has been
known to destroy life.
In the opening chapter of Rider Hag
gard's "Jess" there is a highly dramatic
account of a fight for life with an ostrich,
and it is historically correct. In fighting
they are apt to break their own legs, they
give such desperate blows. Indeed it
would seem as if all the vital energies of
the great bird were centerwl in ir Inm,
gainly legs, which are graceful only when
ttuiug across t-neir native grass covered
plains with araniditv of motion tbut m,,

The Nig Mint-ale's Song and Mating.
The cock birds nsually arrive in the val
ley at the end of the second week in April
and spend at least a week in practicing and
recalling their song. At such times they
are extremely tame, and the writer has
often watched from a few yards distant the
singers, who show far less nervousness ia
practicing before a stranger than is often
observed in human vocalists. The first long
drawn notes are commonly run through
without difficulty, but thesubsequent trills
and changes can no more be acquired with
out practice and training by the nightin
gale than by a human singer. The bird
stops and repeats the song, sometimes car
rying it on with a rush which seems to
promise success, and then breaking down
Now and then the complete song is sung
so low as to be almost inaudible, and then
triumphantly repeated with the utmost
powers which the bird can exert. Prowling
bird catchers, with their traps and meal
worms, are wont to find their way to Night
ingale valley, and the owner of the farm
finds it necessary to give orders for the pro-
tection of the nightingales equally with the
pheasants nesting in thecopses. By the end
of May the birds are sitting, and the cocks
sing to them throughout the night. Lon
Magnitude of the Down Industry.
From out of the chaos of new industries
the down trade has sprung to a most con
spicuous place. Down pillows and head
rests, as well as down comfortables, were,
up to a short while ago, imported almost
entirely, but today they are manufactured
very largely in this country, and many
grades are produced and sold here more
cheaply than the imported.
The idea of manufacturing quilts or com
fortables filled with down goes back in its
origin to a patent secured in England many
years ago by a Yorkshire drummer who
conceived the idea of filling a cretonne com
fortable with silk waste. The thing hung
fire for a while until some one Introduced
down as a substitute, then the industry as
sumed large proportions, and today it is
estimated that our manufacturers consume
from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 pounds of feathers
for bed purposes each season, which means
the annual contribution, dead or alive, of
something like 10,000,00r) of the feathered
