Does Man Give Everything aud Wo

"In marriage, a man givc3 everything
and a woman nothing," I heard a gen
tleman' say the other day. "Of course
it is an object to womnn to marrv, and
none to man."

It is not her purse, and as much of

gives; that is the husband's jortlon of
the marriage contract. She layauinm

the hours of all her days, to be used for
him and for his offspring thenceforth
while they shall live. Vts, and she
knows this. If you who hold your
bride's hand at the altar, holding there
a true, good R oman's hand, believe that
what you can give her to eat and to
drink and to wear, are her temptations
to wifehood, you are mistaken. Tlx;
fortune hunter feminine is of the same
brand as the fortune-hunter masculine,
and is as rare. To win her bread de
cently is now possible to any girl or wo

You do not know erhaps, that the
game of housekeeping is as intricate as
tho game of chess, and that it is one
that must never bo .lost; that this reg

a work of care and thought and time,

Vtow tho Supreme Court is Opened.
To l-gin with, says tiie Washington
Star, there is a degree of dignity and
stately bearing about the court and its
members which permeates even to the
most humble attache. There is a nuiet
in the court-room which recalls the
Sabbath of the Covenanters. When
one enters the involuntarv feelinr
comes on tliat the room is set aside
only for the contemplation of the sober
side of lffe, and woe to him who jibes
or jokes in the presence of the court.
The court is ojened a1oit this fashion;
At 12 o clock (noon) tli3 justices come
m from tho consulting-room and take
their seats on the bench. Away to
the left of the chamber is seen a youth-
iui oiiicer, whose business is to catch
tho first glimpse of the advancing
judges. Then come three raps with a
iwmderous gavel by the same ofheer.
Thi3 is meant as a signal for the audi
ence to rise. Then, with the chief
justice in advance, tho judges enter
from the right of the Chamber. To
the rear of the justices' seat is an aisle.
In the centre is an arched entrance for
the chief justice. Through this aisle
the judges file -and take positions on
the light and left. Xone enter until
tho cliief justice emerges from the
centre entrance. After all have filed
in, tho chief justice makes a graceful
oleisanee to the standing audience.
Then tho judges take seats, a stroke
of tho gavel is made, and the audience
seats itself. The opening cf the court
falls uion a youthful" ollicial. It is
after the old English form. "Oh, yea:
oh, yea," etc., and concludes with the
word.', "God ble.ss the honorable su
preme court." The court js now ready
tor business. " Ail lhc justices aiv clad

Our Sun.
Prof. Proctor, tho astronomer, after
lescribing the variations in magnitude
md brilliancy -which have been observ
ed to occur occasionally in stars re
minds us that it is now :t settled fact
each star is a sun like our own. and
then he goes on to consider what would
occur to the earth and its inhabitants
in case our own sun should be affected
is some of the stars have been. A
tenth magnitude star in tho constella
tion of the Xorthern Crown was in
18tJ seen to shine as a second magni
tude star S)0 times 'its former luster.
He savs: "If our sun were to increase
ten-fold in brightness, all the higher
forms of ; nimal life and nearly all the
forms of vegetable life would be de
stroyed. A few animalcules might sur
vive, and possibly a few of the lowest
forms of vegetation, but nought else."
fortunately our sun has thus far only
exhibited slight signs of pcrturlation
slight in comparison with the change
which occurred in .the star alove re
ferred to. Those who make a study of
the sun's surface see that it is constant
ly changing and that great commotions
ire occurring there from time to time.
Put within the history of mankind
there has been no sudden increase in
brilliancy and heat suHicicnt to destroy
the denizens of the earth. Should such
occur the history of mankind would
cease for a while at least.
Slander
raise witness, uennerate perjury, is
the crown and consummation, of the
liar's progress. But what a word, Lie!
Careless damaging statements, thrown
hither and thither in convention;
reckless exaggeration and romancing,
only to make stories mole pungent;
hasty records of character, left to be
published after we .'ire dead ; heedless
disregard of the supreino duty and val
ue or truth, in all tlungs; these aro
what we should bearli mind, when we
are told wo are not to bear false wit
ness against our neighbor.
A lady who had bn in the habit of
spreading slanderous reports once con

Chicaso Tribune.
The department of Agriculture at
Washington has prcparea a table com
piled from the latest returns, showing
the difference in the number of domes
tic animals in Europe and the United
States. The exhibit is as follow:
Horses Europe has 31,573,GG3 horses ;
Great Britain having 2,101,100; Bussia,
10,100,000; Austria, i;.)G7.023; Hun
gary. 1,158,819; Prussia, 2,278,724, and
France 2,742,708; the other countries
having less than 1XX),000 each, while
the United States has but' 10,93S,700,
or 20.G34JG3 less than all Europe,
Mules and Asses Europe has 4,130,
031 mules and asses, Spain having
2,319,846; Italy, 718,222 L "ranee 703,
943; Portugal 138,040; the other coun
tries having less than 1,000,000 each,
while the United States lias but 1,713,
100, or 2,422,931 less than all Europe.
. Cattle There are in Europe 89,678,
348 cattle, Great Britain having 6,002,
100; Ireland, 4,142,400; Sweden, 2,020,
330; Bussia, 22,770,000; Austria, 7,425,
212; Hungary, 5,279,193; Prussia, 8,
612,150; Bavaria, 3,0G6,2G3 ; France,
11,721,459; Spain, 2,967,303; Italy, 3,
489,125; the other - countries having
less than 2,000,000 each, while there
are in the United' States 33,234,500
cattle, or 56,443,748 , less than in all
Europe,
Sheep-There are in Europe 194,
026,235 sheep, Great Britain having
29,495,900; Ireland, 4,482,000; Bussia,
45,432,000; Austria, 5,026,398; Hun
gary', 15,076,997; Prussia, 19,624,758;
France, 25,035,114; Portugal, 2.706,777;
Spain, 22,468,969; Italy, 6,984,049;
Boumania, 4,786,317; the other coun
tries having less than 2,000,000 each,
while the United Stites has 38,126,800
sheep, or, 152,002,436 less, than all
Europe.
Swine There are in Europe 42,686,
493 swine, Great Britain having 2,519,
300; Ireland, 1,042,244; Bussia, 9,800,
000: Austria, 2,551,473; Hungary,
4,443,279; Prussia, 4,278.531; France,
5,755,656; Spain, 4,351,756; Italy, 1,
553,582; the other countries having less
than 1,000,000 eacli, while the United
States has 34,766,100, or 7,920,393 less
than all Europe.
By comparing all Europe with the
United States, the conclusion may be
jumied at that the disparity between
the number of domestic animals in the
two countries makes a lad showing
for the United Stites. Xot at all.
When the question of population is
taken into consideration, it will be
seen that tho United Stites is vastly
in advance of Europe. Europe has a
population -of aboni: 2POO,000, wldl
the United States hto f ss than 50,000,
000. The iuestion or domestic ani
mals relates far more to normlation
than to souaro miles, anil whpn nnr
population equals tli.it of Europe,
which it is likely to do after a century
or two, the increase of domestic "fi
nals in the Unitcd-StntHs will vi:ioo
her far in advance of IV.irono.
Prof. Maynard's EJectric Cat.

Prof. Maynard of Cincinnati, it is a
legal, owns the most ;owerful electric
battery in the world. He is also the for
tunate proprietor of a black torn cat.
unrivaled throughout t ie United States
for beauty, size and . inteligence. A
few days since, so the ttory coes. these
two belongings of the learned prof essor,

into contact. 111 such s rt that the cat

that Prof. Maynard, deeply impressed
by the importanceof his accidental dis
covery, has taken out a pattent for
lighting streets and public buildings
by means of liirnmouVVaU, a;:d that
a company is being formed, with a
capital of $10,000,000, for the purpose
of introducing the "Felinir Electric
Illuminator to all the countries of the
universe. ' A single radiant cat, suspen
ded chandelier-wise from the ceiling of
a theatre, would emit more light than
a hundred gas jets, or, enclosed within
an ordinary , street lamp would turn
night into day for some five hundred
yards from its crystal place of confine

New Mexico, '

New Mexico is on the eve of much
wealth and prosperity. A great com

slow shilling from the highway of trade.
For this redemption the world will be
indebted to the Atchison, Topeka and

Tlie London Truth, in a recent num
ber, says: "Xot long ago a strange
scene took place in a pretty garden not
a hundred miles from London. The
tree shaded lawn wa3 scattered over
with seats, with here ah'd there a
bright colored Persian rug for the spe
cial behoof of any guests who object
to open air amusements on account of
'damp grass.' "
To some minds' grass U alwavs damp.
It was early in the afternoon, and the
only tenants in the garden were.the
servants, who were arranging refresh
ments uion some tables under the trees.
They seemed full 'of nods f.nd becks,

her eyes half closed and her gait uncer
Just at this moment anothei car
riage drives tip, a gentleman and lady
being the occupants. They, too, enter
the garden gate and advance towards
the house across the lawn. As they
approach the uncertain, swaying figure
of their hostess they look at each oth
er significantly, and the lady says in a
low voice: "I was afraid of this.
Where can Mr. X. be to allow her to be
seen in that state Y The interpreta
tion of those wild looks, that disorder
ed hair, and those meaningless words
is that Mrs. X. is intoxicated, though
not sufficiently so to be quite helpless.
She wanders about among her guests,
her condition, however, being so palp
able, so unmistakable, that the majority
laugh and titter, while the friendly
few pity.thouglfthey condemn her. The
painful scene was ended by tho arrival
of her husband, whose look of misery,
as he led his wife on his arm through
the gronps of gaily dressed people into
the house, touched even the laughers
with pity.
This is no exaggeration of facts. It
