twelve o'clock noon, and three at night. Af

Just published, a new edition
of Dr. Cnkerwell's Celebrated
Essay on the radical cure (with
out medicine) of Spermatorrhoea or Semi
nal Weakness, Involuntary Seminal Losses,
Impotency, Mental and Phisical Incapacity
Impediments to Marriage, etc.; also, Con
sumption, Epilepsy and Fits, induced by
self-indulgence or sectual extravagance, &c.
Price, in scaled envelope, only six cents.
The celebrated author, in this admirable
Essay, clearly demonstrates, from a thirty
years' successful practice, that the alarming
consequences of self-abuse may be radically
cured without the dangerous nse of internal
medicine or the application of the knife;
pointing out a modo of cure at once simple,
certain, and effectual, by means of which
every sufferer, no matter what bis condition
may be, may cure himself cheaply, private
ly, and radically.
This Lecture should bs in the hands
of every youth and every man in the land.

Elite Parker was an orphan, un
der the rather reluctant guardian
ship of a bachelor uncle, and his
house was all the home she looked
forward to. Other young grad
uates were talking of their parents
and brothers and sisters ; even of
their pet birds and plants ; but
Eflie was ali alone :

Brown, bouncing upon her soiitt

' Whv should vou crv ? You mitrht,
indeed, with some .show of reason,
if you were like me, booked to go
out as a governess, and earn ycur
bread by the sweat of your brow !
For I haven't even an

Lucy was a short, plump dumplin,
of a girl, with brown hair curling
in close, short rings all over her
head, big blue eyes like those of a
china doll, and just enough of an
upward curve to her nose to give
her an indescribable air ofsauci
ncs3. And she wore gingham
dresses because they were cheap,
and washed her ribbons in gum
arabic water, and darned her gloves
until they were more ' mend ' than
material. And withal, she was the
most piquant and stylish looking
little girl in all Madame Metours'3
' But J'm afraid of Uncle Ger
ald,' faltered Effic ' to be there all
alone with him.'
'Does lie scold?' asked Lucy,
Jn no, but
' I'll go home with you,' said
Lucy. ' Come ! My engagement

' There's two of 'cm coming.'
' Dear me, sir ! is there indeed ?'
said Mrs. Caldwell. ' All the bet
ter, should say. The old house
need brightening up a little ; it's as
dull as a convent.'
' And what is to become of my
scientific experiments in natural
history investigations, I should like
to know:' demanded Mr. Vane, in
dignantly, ' Well, sir,' coughed Mrs. Cald
well, if it aint making too bold,
I think you're too much wrapped up
in them heathenish doings. And

' Two nice little girls ? Are you
mad, Mrs. Caldwell? Why, my
niece is eighteen at least, and the
other one Lucy Brown she calls
her must be as old, if not older.'

Mrs. Caldwell courtesied and

comical gesture of terror. ' I've

Three weeks Lucy Brown re
mained a guest at Vane Hall three
weeks of unmitigated disaster,
tribulation and devastation. She
broke the sash of Mr. Vane's camellia-house
; she lost his pet Italian
greyhound ; she tripped a bottle of
ink over an essay he had just com
pleted for the ' Savant's Monthly,'
and ruined his collection of dried
butterflies by accidentally sitting
down on them when they were air

of the lip, 4 for I wanted him to like
me just a little.'
She went boldly into the study
to face her doom, while Efiie Par.

began to cry.
' If Lucy goes off to leave me, I
shall die of homesickness and lone

It wa3 fully three-quarters of an

of the audience chamber.
It must have been an awful

shudder. ' How flushed she looks !

At one of the demi French reun

occured which amused the few who

U-XTitr'n. T-i;ryroT--?.. There wns
a bishop in Dublin who engaged a
painter to make a largo picture for
the cathedral. Tho subject chosen
was the crossing of the lied Sea by
the Israelites. After a time the
picture was completed and hung in
the cathedral, covered by a heavy
curtain, and a great crown of peo
ple assembled to see it unveiled.
All faces were turned in expecta

it was drawn aside, nothing could
be seen but a vast expanse of water.
In it rage the bishop turned to the
artist andexclaimcd :

said the painter.
