Occasionally be see au article he likes, ho begs, or 'ives half a dims for the number. This is culled news paper patronage. Another man takes two or three city paper and cannot afford to take a home paper, but he like it and come into tho ollioe and bejjs one whenever ho comee into town. Tins is alo called newspaper patrouago. Another man likes the paper and takes a copy for bis family, and pays for it, and does tall he cuu to get new subscribers be never grumbles, but al ways hit a cheerful word for the edi tor. If any little item of interest oc cur in thu neighborhood ha informs the editor. This in newspaper patron age. Another men bus a patent and wants you to give it a two dollar notice every week; it will be of interest to your read er, he says; but although knowing it will benefit him most of all, he does not offer to pay for it. Tbis is called news paper patronage. Another man bus taken the paper for severul years, but has not paid for it, and comes iu with a four or five dollar advertisement and asks you to insert it for nothing, because be is an old pat ron of yours. This is called newspa per patronage. Another man "n young man about town," no use of taking a paper, be knows ail that i going on. By and by ho gets married, and hands in a notice with "just gWe tne a dozen copies." He get them, and when you mentirn pay look surprised "you surely do not charge for such a thing! And this is called newspaper patronage. Another man, (bless you; it does ns good to see such men,) comes in and says, "the year is about to expire, I want to pay for another. " He does so ar.d retires. This i newspaper patron age. Now isn't newspaper patroimgo ft cu rious thing? Aud in that great r!ay wbt n the gentleman in black gets hi duos, as he surely will, how many of the pttrons enumerated aboTe will fall to hi share ? Now it will be seen that while certain kinds oi patronage are tho very life and existetico of a newspa per there (ire other kind of patronage that are more destructive limn the deadly nightshade.

The whita boune was modeled after the palace of the duke of I.einster, and the statu dining dining room, more than any part of the building, is suggestive of a baron ial hall. These dinners cost from three to fif teen hundred dollars, though the aver age cost is about seven hundred. The state dinner of which prince Arthur bad the honor of partaking waa com posed of twenty-nine eomsua and cost fifteen bundled dollars; but it is only when royalty ij to bo entertained that th"tse feasts assume such costly propor tions. This modest cum does not in clude the wino and other beveratres. for these come under a separate "item." In no other administration has the government appointed a man to spend the presidential money. Heretofore tho "ladies of the white bruise" have looked after this pait of the ofiioial business, and it will at once be seen what frugality is necessary in order to make both ends of the presidential year meet ; but no man during the existence of tho republic has ever been the recip ient of so many costly gilts as the pres ent executive. A rare work of ai t adorns the cen tre of the long table iu the state din ing room. It is several feet long, and perhaps two feet wide, and is compos ed of gilt and looking glass. The foun dation i a long mirror, and tbi beach ed by a perpendicular shore throe inches iu height, but of no appreciable thickness. Luttle font like upheaving may b Been rising out of tho tawdry gilt at equal distances apart, and these are used as receptacles for natural flowers. But, lest the guest should look into this mirror, and see each oth er facetiously reflected at moments, too, w hen the human mouth assume any thing but proportions, largo vases of flowers ure strewn on the glassy sur face, and the mischief of the mirrors is nipped in tho bud. Tho ornament is not merely ornamental; it is useful. It answers the very purpose to help out u social ambuscade, for it can bo so arranged as to bide the president from any guest whoso presouee bo i suffer ing; whether said person come under the bead of enemy or friend.

(lood meerschaum can be indented with tho tbumb-Uttil.nnd is easily cut with a knifo It is found of different degrees of density some kinds w ill float on wa ter, while others will sink. Those of medium density aro preferred by pipe nuikers. Most of the genuine meer schaum obtained comes from Asia, but is also found in Greece, Spain and Mo ravia. It is exported iu the form of ir regular blocks. In some cases meer schaum is fushioned into rough pipe bowls where it is dug, but it is mostly seut to Europe. Tho cities of Pesth and Yienna wero formerly celebrated for their meerschaum manufactories. Iu forming a pipe bowl the material is pre pared for tho operation by soaking it in a composition of beeswax and olivo oil. Tho wax and oil absorbed by tho meer schaum are the cause of tko color pro duced in such pipes by smoking. The beat of tho burning tobacco causes the oil of the tobacco to mix with the wux and olive oil in the meerschaum and these gradually assumo the dark tints so much priz'd by some inveterato smokers. In some cases tho bowls of theso pipes are stained artificially by soaking them in a solution of iron mix ed with dragon blood. The white meer schaum, however, should always be pre ferred. The scrapings of the blocks of which the solid pipes are made are trit urated and reduced to powder, then boiled in soft water until a thick paste is formed, which is moulded into . locks, then dried and cut into pieces as front natural blocks. There are very many pipes sold under the uamo of meer schaums that are nothing but spunouos compositions, but it is very difficult to detect tho false from the true by mere inspection. Some fancy meerschaum pipes are very costly. These ure mostly found in Austria. They are funisihed with amber mouth-pieces and studded with silver. li fit i.y VKK.n.i.Yr.

The common washing Rponga is still con sidered by many naturalists as a vege table species, and in fact most people look upon it as of vegetable growth. JStill it seems now to bo definitely establish ed that it belongs to those lower forms of aninialcslii! that are comprised under the term Zoophites. However, the sponge which you uso daily iu your ab lutions and which forms one of the most indespnnsablo articles of the toilet is not the animal as it lives and thrives, but only its borney substance, its skele ton, if you like to call is so. When cut from the bumariue rocks on which it is found at considerable depth, the sponge presents itself to you as a black, jolly liko mass, w hich, when left in the air for only a few days, will givo off a most disagreeable smell, originating from the gelatinous part in question. Iu the natural sponge, you have not one single individual before you, but a regular colony of auimalbuhc. The elastic, boru like net-work of your tablo is then im pregnated to its ineermost parts with a slimy substance that is penetrated throughout by fine capillary tubes, riot visible to the naked eyo. Upon exam ining this curious being further, ex ceedingly fine Jeilia (eye-lushes) will be discovered. They project around the entrance of the pores, and by their mo tion produce a current which, iu pass ing through the numberless tubes, leaves behind whatever they may need as food. The homey not-work is prob ably only their secretion, liko the bouse of the snail. But that the sponge is of animal origin is now proven by the dis covery of spermantozoa aud embroys in the interior, as well as by the com position of the fibrous elastic part itself which contain one of the constituent of silk and the spidors web. In order to prepare it for use, it is first left in the air for a short tune, until the gelatin oua part is decomposed, then the mass is washed in hot water, and afterward in a bate of diluted muriatic acid. The toilet spoi.gcs are bleached by means of chlorine and hyposulphite of soda. Tho so-called wax sponges, that are us ed by doctors for dressing ulcers, are purified BjKiiigos dipped into fluid wax, and then pressed between hot plates. Tho French and Austrian governments have laUly commenced to rear sponges artificially the former on the shores of the Mediterranean, the latter on the coast of Dalmatia, The cultivation is said to be perfectly successful, and to yield large profits.
