The most truly artistio efforts of the
Japanese artists are those which display
the simplest modes o1 delineations, and
ar. generally executed in indian ink
only. Many descriptions have been
given by those who have had the op
Portunity of watching the natives at
work, and all bear witness to the re.
markable quickness of imagination and
execution they display. :A traveler in
the country relates how on one occa
sion he had the pleasure of observing a
screen-painter at work in his studio,
which consisted of a portion of the
house screened off from the rest by his
gnished productions, but open to the
street. Being struck with his great
freedom of hand, he requested him to
draw a bunch of grapes. This was
given as a difficult task and test of skill,
for the traveler had in his mind the
labored works of his own country, and
naturally expected that, from the time
required to depict the fruit, the artist
would laugh and shake his head.
Judge of his surprise when the artist
seled a piece of sereen-paper and, dip
ping the point of his thumb into a dish
of Indian ink, proceeded to make a
number of softly-shaded, cresent-like
forms close together. Thinking he
must have been misunderstood, but
saying nothing, he watched with grow
Ing Interest the rapid movements of
his artistic friend. The crescent forms
being finished, his first finger and
thumb were together dipped into the
ink and transferred to the paper, and
with a few rapid movements produced
two shaded forms of Irregular outline.
With his thumb-nail he added three
dark lines and sundry other trifling
touches, and politely handed the finish
ed sketch, which displayed a bunch of
plump round grapes, with leaves and
stalks complete. This was by no means
a bad illustration of the ready methods
resorted to by the Japanese artists in
representing simple objects, for which
they are justly celebrated. We have
one illustration in a Japanese book
which shows an artist eated on a stool
opposite a screen, which he Is painting
with no fewer than five brushes, one
held in eath foot, one in each hand, and
one in his mouth. This Is doubtless an
exaggeration. Another humorous
sketch on the same page shows the
artists to be of such a transcendent
genius, and the horse he had been
painting proved so lifelike, that it be
came endowed with vitality and ran
away from the paper. The amazemeut
of the artist Is cleverly expressed.
How to Eat.
The notion that appetite is a low de
gree of hunger, and hunger an intens I
fled form of appetite, does not seem to
be borne out by facts. The two desires
or longings are different in their na.
ture. Appetite is the craving of the
apparatus of.taste.and sometimes of the
digestive organs; while hunger
is the demand of organism as
a whole or of some of its parts of lood.
Use the words appetite and hunger
how you may, there are actually two
needs o be expressed,and much mb e ikiI
arises from confounding them. The
one cry for food which we call appe.
time Is an affair of habit or caprice, and
may, for a time at least, be stimulated
by appealing to the sense of taste, or
promoted by certain cordials and stimu
lants; but, looking at the matter from
a physIological point of vie w, it is difil
cult to see what we can gain by ex
citing the organs of digestion to take
food unless the system is in a condition
to receive it. The rational mode of
procedure woull seem to be to wait
the expression of a need in the system
-in short, to look to hunger rather
than appetite as an incentive to the set
of feeding, instead of exciting the
palate and sense organs to take food
when we have no organic reason to
suppose that there is an inner ned of
There are certain evil consequences
of the civilized mode of feeding by ap
petite on the basis -of habit, which It
may be useful to point out. First,
separating appetite from hunger, and
developing it as an independent sense
or function, there naturally sprIngs
up a fashion of life which may be
disoribed as "living to feed." The
purveyor of food trades on the tastes
and cultivated longings of the consum
er, and the consideration what to eat
.and what to drink comes to occupy 5a
place in the self-consciousnuess wh ich
it was probably not intenaded to fill,
and in so far as this is tne case man is
more animal, and less spiritual and in.
telleotual, than lie ought to be; al
though it may be conceded that the re
fined taste of cultivated nature is less
offensive than the simple voracity of
the savage. There are some who con
tend that man is thme gainer by the de
velopments of his appetite. 11 this be
so, the gain is a good not unmixed with
evil. Another drawback is that by
severing appetite from hunger we lose
the indication of quantity which nature
gives with her orders for food. TIhie
man who eats a regulated number of
meals daily, with a duly stimulated and
organized habit, probably eats much
more in the twenty-four hours
than his system requir es, or the organ.

An Extraorinuar Freak of Nature.
A singular and beautiful freak of na
ture was shown in a marble mantel at
the Cincinnati Exhibition. In one of
the onyx pilasters was seen the out
lines of a woman's form produced ages
ago, when the marble first assumed its
grow th and consistence. The portrait
was clearly defined and traced in the
native-graining of the stone. Its dis
covery was the result of an accident.
One of the workmen turned the pilas
ter upside down,and thesatrange beauty
aof the features of the face at once at
tracted his attention. Ills employers
were summoned and the pilaster re
versed is now the chief ornament of
the mantel. The attitude, with the
arms stretched above the head, closely
resembles that of the Greek caryatides,
which adorned so many of the old
classic temples. The figur6 is grace
