MUTE CATTLE. M. Paul Bert, in a recent lecture at the sorbonne, on the late Claude Bernard, nar rated a singular stratagem which which was invented byathe latter during the last Fran o-German war, and which might be util ized without difficulty under the same or even under different circumstances. It was proposed to revictual Paris, which was strictly blockaded by the German forces. A large number of.cattle had been collected, waiting for an opportunity to cross the Ger man lines. But a difficulty was to silence these animals, as their cries would attract the attention of the enemy. Claude Ber nard proposed to practice upon them the .section of the nerve which enables them to emit their usual cries. The operation is so .easy that it could be executed in a fvew see onds by an ordinary butcher. None of the animals appeared to sufler in any way by the mutilation which made themni mute. Un fortunately, however, toie mi itlry \novf e ment proved alaiureL auid for dtlikr cause the revictualing could not take place. It would be greatly to the relief of the public it this same method could be applied to cats, whlich make night hideous with their eaterwauling.. COMBINATION SUITS. Velvet suits are more seen in New York this'spring than for imany seasons, and vel vet .is also greatly used for combination suits, both with silk and pale woolen goods, being used for the underskirt and trimming. It is a consoling thought to those who wish to be in the fashion and yet are sensible enoughi to utilize what they have, that corn bination ruits have lost none of their pres tige, but are made up as above., and also in silk and wool, and in goods of same imate rial, one pilain and the other figured, striped, or checks and stripes interwoven, with the colors not too pronounced. The sumner silk can be remtnolcled by purchasing some of the fine ribbed velvet which can be used with fine effect, as it is as soft as cashmere and conies in all the new shades and light tints for .evening dresses. -~~~ -,1--- TALK AT HOJE. Endeavor to always talk your best before your children. They hunger perpetually for new ideas. They will learn with pleas ure from the lips of parents what they will deem it drudgery to study in books; and even if they have the misfortune to be de prived of niany educational advantages they will grow nup intelligent if they enjoy in childhood the privilege of listening daily to the conversation of intelligent people. We sometimes see parents, who are the life of every company which they enter, dull, si lent and uninteresting at hom:e among their children. If they have no mental activity and mental stores sulficient for both, let them first use what they have for their own household. A silent home is a dull place for young people, a place from which they will escape if they can. How mrnc!i u'eul information, on the other hand, is often giv en in pleasanit l'intily conversation, and what unconscious but mental traninhlg in lively social argument.
