Whether this be a law of nature or. a law of custom none have disputed; but we think there can be little doubt about it. Were it not a law of nature, would have been resisted by some people. Its universal adoption and prevalence, proves it to be an es tablisked natural fact—a law which neither act of Parliament nor cos tom lias power to repeal. The out side of the house consists of all such productive labor as supplies tbelmaterials for domestic comfort, and the inside consists of t he prep aration, arrangement and distribu tion of such material for the good of the family; two very distinct of fices ; and nature has very kindly and very wisely provided a sex for each. The two sexes are only in their proper sphere when respect ively superintending these two de partments, and each is evidently out of place and somewhat uncom fortable when trespassing on the other's ground. But there is a nat ural tendency to trespass notwith stauding. Wives are proverbially fond of giving advice and doing a little business in the masculine de partment, and men are no less pro verbially tempted to belie their sex, and take upon themselves such au thority in the honse-keeping line as reminds us not a little of the bull iu the china shop. A kitchen man is a very troublesome fellow, more especially if he sits all day in the arm-chair by the fireside, advising, directing, grumbling, criticising and commanding. His wife must be possessed of a remarkable pas ivity of nature to endure it with patience, and he himself gains lit tle by it, except, perhaps, it may be the dish-cloth pinned to his coat tail by some wag of a girl, who has courage and impudence of spirit to beard the lion in his den. A wife who interferes with her husband's workmen is equally insufferable, or who comes between the husband and his customers to show her own talent for business, ami the inca pacity of her lord and master. I There «nay at times be a necessity \ for both these exchanges of rela tionship, but they are always ac companied by disagreeable feel ings, and discreditable to no one party or both. Varnished Watermelons. [Poughkeepsie Eagle.] The startling assertion that a wa termelon may he varnished and keep till Christmas, is still going around. The watermelon is onr favorite frujt, and we thought last fall that we would varnish oue and surprise our friends with it Christinas. The surprise was alright, but the mel on didn't pan out . After the turkey and cranberry sauce had been de molished, we remarked as we shar pened the carving-knife on our bootleg that we would now deal out the fruit. When we shoved the glittering blade through the varnished shell of the watermelon about a quart of melon juice in a bad state of pres ervation squirted around the fest ive board and stopped the flow of conversation. "Yes, yon can varnish a water melon and keep it till next fall, but when you hold the autopsy you want to have nobody around but the coroner and the euibainier. - Oue of a Cincinnati judges rea son for refusing to grant a divorce tollman was that he had token his wife "from the domestic circle and launched her into the midst of iniquities which surround the path of a comely and youthful female in a business life requiring travel and frequent contort with worldly peo pie." In other words, he sent her out as a book agent. a ed iu A Story of Daniel Webster. In the early part of the profes sional life of Daniel Webster, a blacksmith called upon him for ad vice concerning the title to a small estate bequeathed to him. As the terms of the will were pe culiar, and the kind of estate transmitted doubtful, an attempt had been matte to annnl the will. After Mr. Webster had examined the case he was nnabie to give a definite opinion on it for want of legal authorities. He therefore, at considerable expense, purchased a number of extra law books from Boston, and spent his leisure hours of several weeks in referring to them. He successfully argued the case on its trial, when it was deci ded in his favor. On account of the poverty of the blacksmith, Mr. Webster only charged him $15, in tending not only to suffer the loss of money paid out, but the time oc cupied in securing the verdict. After a long period had elapsed the case was forgotten; but not to the knowledge by which it was won. On one of his journeys to Washington Mr. Webster spent a few days in New York city, when the celebrated Aaron Burr sought his advice iu a very important case then pending in the State court. Having heard the facts on which it was founded, Mr. Webster perceived at once that it exactly corresponded with the black smith's will case. On being asked if he could mention the law appli cable to such he immediately re plied that he could, and then he gau to quote decisions bearing up on tiie case from the time of Charles II. As he went on citing his array of principles and author ities with great precision, Mr. Burr arose in astouisliment, and asked with some warmth, "Mr. Webster, have you keen consulted before in this easel" "Most certainly not," he replied. "I never heard of your case until this evening." "Very well," said Mr. Biiit, "proceed." Mr. Webster concluded the quota tion of his authorities, and receiv ed from Mr. Burr the highest praise for his profound legal knowledge, and a fee sufficiently large to remunerate him for all the time and trouble he had devoted and the expense incurred iu the blacksmith's will case. A fashionable young lady visited a cooking school the other after noon, where her attention was equally divided between a new dress worn by an acquaintance and the directions for making a cake. Upon returning home site under took to write down the recipe for the cake for her mother, and the old lady was paralised when she read : "Take two pounds of flour; ten rows of pleating down the front; the whites of two eggs cut bias; a pint of milk ruffled arqnnd the neck; half pound currents with seven yards of bead trimming; gra' ted lemon peel with Bpauish fichu; stir well and add a seqii-fitting pa telot with visite sleeves; butter the pan with Brazilian topaz necklace; garnish with icing and jetted pas sementerie; bake iu a moderately hot oven until the overskiitis tack ed from the waist down on either side, and finish with large satin bows." Her mother said ' she wouldn't eat such a cake, and she thought these new-fangled ideas iu cooking ought to he frowned down. Judging from the quantity of freight recived as well as cotton aud country produce shipped, the number of buildings going up aud the unusual demand' for lumber, Opelousas certainly present« the most solid business front that it has for several years past. The fact too, that none or onr mer chants have become bankrupt or failed ami that several new stores have been put iu operation during the last year, and other* are being built, argues strongly for brighter prospects. —Jfc>I. Landry Democrat. Thrilling Scene. The Pittsburg DispStch thus discribes the wonderfnl perform ance of Mme. Zuila, the famous Parisienne, who out-rivals Blondit* iu her mad freaks npon the high wire: "The famous Blondin, in all his eventful career, never performed a more thrilling or more inspiring: feat than was accomplished by Ella Zuila last night under the canvas of Forepangh's show. A slender wire was stretched across the large tent at a dizzy height from the ground, and here the dauntless lit tle woman, without a tremor, rod© back and forth on a velocipede, while the terrified audience, gazed in breathless expectation, every nerve strained to its utmost tension, even the pulsation of their hearts almost stilled, as they watched the mad course of the frail vehicle and its intrepid rider on the almost invisible ærial roadway. As the velocipede stop ped, the perilous undertaking ac complished, one hearty, prolonged cheer of mingled relief, admiration and cpngratulation echoed through the tent, thousands of throats ri sing with each other to swell the chorus, which Mme. Zuila acknowl edged giaceftilly and prettily be fore dismounting from her giddy steed. This is only one of the many blood-curdling exploits of this queen of the air. With all the grace and carelessness of Morlac ohi, or Rigl leading a favorite bal let, she tripped across the dizzy path, repeating her trip with feet clogged by baskets, again blind folded, carrying a chair which she deliberately placed on the rope when midway, and seatiug herself in it moved her handkerchief over the heads of her delighted specta tors. Another of her performance is the balancing of a table on the rope and dining from it, suspend ing in mid aif. This was never undertaken by any woman before, is probably one of the strongest. tests of the woman's nerve and coolness which she is called upon to undergo." In the classic shades of Dead wbod the average native is not very choice in selecting the lan guage used iu advertising a runa way wife. The notices are usually written and posted iu thepoat-ottl ccs and saloons, whore they wilt catch the eyes of the majority of the population. A recent one reads as follows : "My wife Sarah has Shook my rauche, When I diddent Doo a darned thing Too hur, and I want it destinotly Understood that any man That takes her Iu and keers for hur On my account Will git himself pumped so Full of lead that Sum tendfrfoot will locate him for a Mineral clame. Iff she runs Hur face fur goods I wont Put up fur hur, and I'le lick the son-of-a torna do that taiks hur stand-off even fur the drinx. A word To the wise is sufficient an orter work on fools too." «' A New Hampshire man got up to light a lamp aud fell down dead. Our readers will hear wituesa that we have always pointed ont that this getting up ut night is a man's wife's business. Behold the ter rible justification of our course! —-- me S' - a O ■ - "Henry," said his wife, with chilling severity, "I saw you eom ing out of a saloon this afternoon.'* "Well, my darling," replied the heartless man, "you wouldn't have your husband staying iu a saloon all dqy, would you !"
