Glass or Celluloid Types.-The useful
ness of toughened glass, bids fair to be
greater than was first supposed. Some
experiments are reported to have been
made in France with a view to showing
whether this substance can be pressed
into the printer's service and substitu
ted for the metal composition of which
types are made. The latter does not at
first sight strike the observer as the
best that couli be found. It is bright
enough when the letters first come frota
the foundry, and before they have seen
any service; but a few days' wear gives
the type a very dingy appearance, and
before they are Snrily returned t) the
melting pot they have degenerated into
a very squalid form, looking dirty in
their body as well as battered in their
faces. The idea is now to discard these
8 long-proved but nnattractive servaTits
and fill their places with glittering
types of glass. The advantages in point
of cleanliness alone would,it Is alleged,
be not insignificant. The toughened
glass, which Is not to be nade in quite
the same way as that used for tumblers
and wine-glasses, and need not, of
course, be quite so transparent, is natu
rally much harder than the old metal,
r and can hardly be crushed out of shape
by those little accidents which so short
en the life and spoil the beauty of the
only type we now employ. It is also
capable of being cast into more delicate
shapes, so that the difference, for in
h stance, between the thin and the thick
strokes can be more clearly defined. It
is now found that the new material can
0 be cast in exactly the same molds as
the old, and that, therefore, there need
be no expense incurred in altering the
I manufacture of type. We learn from
- a reliable source that great success at
tended recent experiments made with
celluloid in the manufacture of type.
I It Is not improbable that one or the
other of these articles may at some fu
ture time take the place of the old
metal types which have so long been in
One Experience from Mauy
"I had been sick and miserablo so
long and had caused my husband so
kmuch trouble and expense, no one
seemed to know what ailed me, that I
t was completely disheartened and dis
r couraged. In this frame ot' mind I got
a bottle of iiup Batters and used them
unknown to iy family. I soon began
to improve and gained so fast that my
:husband and family thought it strange
and unnatural, but when I told them
what had helped me, they said "ilur
t rah for IHop litters! long may they
p prosper, for they have made tuother
well and us happy.''-The Mother.
.According to M. Edmond About there
o are at least 2,000 pictures in the present
i French Salon which nc dealer would
d show ini his shop. Within the last
t twenty years the number of pictures
;hung has doubled, without art reaping
i much advantage, M. Paul Parfait
gives us an amusing description of
some previous Salons. That of Year
dj IX (1801*), con tained only 485 works of
a all descriptions, instead of, as today,
y 7,289. M. Callet exhibited a magniti
cent canvas symbolical of the 18th Brn
maire, of which the centre was occu
*pied by the vessel of the State, which
e was represented as having safely
a entered port and as meored with a
a chain of laurel wreaths. Th'ie British
- leopard, too, was displayed on it vainly
a lavishing guineas on expiring tmon
sters, and Discord .was flying beo
the dawvning rays of a luminary doing
f duty for a new era.
