Now statues and wreaths, aml llags, dn Iion or to his uame, and tlie Geriuan empire seuds its representiitives to join witli the representatives of the Christiau Church in Englaml, Scotland, Ireland, and Fnince in celebrating his ineiiiory. Xot far away, in the old church, is the grave of tlio gentlo Mclanothon. also the grave of Luther, eoveretl with wreaths aml llowers, and the port r:iit of liiin niiscd above it on the wall. The wliole length of the maiu street of the city was hung with oak-leaf wreaths md festoons, while llags tloated from every pmniiucnt place. Xear by is a house of sacrcd ineuiory, liavmg upon it tliis inscription : "Ilere li ved, taught, aml died, 1'liilin Mclaucthon," In Luther hall are preserved Luther's old stove, table, chair, university pul- pit, autograiilis, and several of his serinons, and niedals struck iu his Iion or. The clock struck the hour for clos- ; the great feast, and the crowd of simple-hearted peojde dispersed to their honies, with, doubtless, greater devotion to tlieir country and to God. It may be, aml I hope, it will be, that other scenes will appear as lovely to nio as that did in Wittenberg, and le- inain as vividly beforo me as that does, but that was certainlv ono to be re- inembered long.

IIo is loady to be to every wonian a truo kniglit, reaily to defend her from every iusult. to risk his own lifo iu her behalf. Now, to whoin ought every young niau to show the higliest, truest gal lantry ? To whoin, if not to his own sisters 1 Havo they not tlio first claim on his all'ection 7 If he is not a trne gentleinaii to his own sisters, can he he at. heart a true geiitleuiau to any other wonian ?

He niust con sider liimself tlieir true knight, whose oflice it is to throw arouml theiu every nceded shelter, to servo thein, aud to promoto tlieir higliest good iu every way.

Xeither is tliero any brother worthy of the naine who will not de fend the honor of his sister if vile tongues aspurso it. llut nioro than tliis is reqtiired of a loyal brother. He shonld uiako hiiuself a wall about his sister to shield her from every evil and iiuholy intliience. Every young nian knows other young inen ; ho knows tlieir charactor, tlieir liabits, tlieir good and evil qualitii-s.

NEW TIME-TAI!I.E FOK KAILKOADS. "This traiu statts at twcnty-four o clock." These wero tho words usoil by a gentleniitn at Hroad-street station, 1'hiladelphia, recoutly, in explanation of a tlieory wliicli wiil, in all probabil ity, be put into practice at no distaut ilay. The tlieory is tho establishment fa "time standard," as the railroad men terni it, to bo put into operation on all tho railroads iu the country. Tho projiosed standard would siinply atW the hours after inidnight to eleveu, so that eleven o'clock iu tho morning would be twonty-threo o'clock and noon would bo twcuty-four o'clock. The dial of the clocks would bo made into twenty-four divisious of time, aml tho troublesoine a. m. and p. in. would bo avoided. Unifonnity and certainty in the inovemeut of trains in all parts of tho country is one of the greatest advautages claimed for the new stand ard, aml n simplification of tiiuo-tables tliat tho public would be qiiick to rec oguizo and appreciato would follow. TK- l?ennRlvnnia railroad conipany Iias giveu tho tjiicstiou ol tlio now stamiaril a favoi-.ible coiisideratiou. Tho origiuator of tho tlieory of the twenty four hours for standard time was V. II. Dewees of l'hiladeliliia. -Mr. Dewees,' upon expiessing his views, said recoutly : "Anything uioie cruile, iincertaiu aud insiitiicient than the stylo now in uso caniiot bo iiuagiu ed. It is a lelic of tho dark ages, tdoptcd centurics before a railroad or telegraph was thouglit of. .Modern progiess demamls souiethiiig buttei tdaptcit to the wantsot oiirpu'fent ad- vauced cjvilizntion. If iiiv ldan is tdopted I think it will graditallv ox- tend throughoiit the world. I would ike tiine from the Greenwich Ob-,erva- tory, for it is tlm best tiino that exists. It is exact, constaut aml kuown (or as- certainable) every wheie."' "Ultltctions,' he said, "are likel to lie urged agaiiist Greenwich linio by the peoplo. It would probably be con temled, that, iiiasiiiuch as tho hours of tho day would niti froin one to twenty four, instead of tho day being divided into halves of twelve hours each, as is tho present civil day, great incoii venienco would result to the public. People would soon, however, become u-ciistoiiied to the new uietliod. nliould Gieenwich astroiiomical tiino bo taken ts tho standard twelve o'clock uiid- night would become tho eud of tlio twelfth aml the begiiiniiig of tho thir teentli hour. Two o'clock a. in. (pres ent style), tho beginning of the lif- teciitli hour; six o clock a. iu., present tyle, the beginning of the niueteeuth hour, and so on aioiiml the circle. A inan reading of events occiirring iu Emope ata certaiu tiino of day would uot be in blissful iguorance, if tho new standard wero iu force, of tho time wlien they really did occur. Uuder tho new standard there would be no longer any (iiiestion about New York, I'lulailelpliia, Washington, I'lttsoiirgli, Chicago and the iiuuieroiisother stand- irds now in foico." Tlio I'eiiiisvlvania railroad conipany is auxious to havo the new standard of twenty-four o'clock, and will readily unito with other compaiiies iu having it put into effect. Tho otlicers of that coiiipany say tliero is no uocu.ssity for tho public discarding its present ineth- id ol telling tho time il not satislicil with tho proproed new railroad stand- trd. It will be very easv, oveu upon the clocks aml watches now in use, to reckon tho railroad time. o Tt'lcpliout's lliirt llu; Il:ir- Scvtu-.il physicians of Springfield, says the lceiuiiuicaii, navo ueguu to spcciilato upon the iuiliienco of the use of the tolephone upon tho ear aml tho sense of hearing. Tho subjcct is do cidcdly novel, not as yet being treated in medical lournals. heveral cases havo coiue up wherein tho ear of the patient is diseased iiom varying causes, aml it is fouud that using tho telephone tggravates the trouble. heto iiillam- ttion Iias set iu, tlie ear is icmlcren useless, naturo providiug that any iiiuscle wlien intlanied shall ccusc to tct. It is obvious iu such cases that the telephone may siinply proloug aml increaso the intlaiuiiiatiou, thereby in- lirectlv dnniaging tho heariug. I he old case, cited iu so niany "doctors' books,'' ol the lioiler-makers who siro niaile deaf by their own poiimling, can now be put in new shape, for even a soiind ear lnight easily be ruineil by constantly recciving the vexatious cracklingand boiling of tho telephone. This exegesis may bo technically ihrased as nervoiis exhaustion Irom a (Totitiuiioits shock. I- urtliermore, tho analogy between the niechaiiism of the eye and tliat nf the ear may be cited to show that tho straining of the ear to catch the faiut or imlistiuct words of the telephone may damage the hearing, as straining tlio eye impairs vision. lSut niost ol the evitlenco gathered to siiport these theories tends to com batthem. Tlius it appears that maiiv people who havo telephones in tlieir hou.-es or places ol onsiness, aml tisc thein frenuently, liml their hearing bettered. Tho best testiinouy, how ever, comes from the central ollice. At each switelt-iioarti sus an operator, genei-jilly a giil. who irom morning till uiglit haggles with uuieasonalih subscribers amt tiatiently goes througl tho everlastmg lormula till her liead fairlv rings with "hallo" aml "all right" and "go ahead." She gets sinall pay lor her trying woik, suiely not a sutlicieiit coinpciisation for lo-. of heariug. llut her testimony is that her hearing is constantly impioving. When she began this work she liluii deiedsadlv; now tho ear is drilled to catch tho faintest soiind, :tml ln-r sein-i of hearing is remarkably acute. It niust be noticed that the regiilarity of this schooling of the ear is laigely re sponsible for tho good result. If an operator were to take a switch board only one day in a week aml do all the work reijuiieil on that day, the prac tice would doubtless be detrimental because it would be exhaustive to both the musciilar and the nervoiis iiiake-up of the ear. The systeinatic use of the telephone seems to develop the hear ing above its norinal acuteness, but does not niako it technically abnormal. One heuetit from u.-ing the telephone is evident to both subscribers aml central-ollice oner.itors, tliat of culti- vating tlie atteutiou, a procens which is reckoned as the third or intellectual nicthod of doveloping tho sense ot ueaniig. A good share or the dilliciiln which iieonlo lind iu workini: a tele phone comes not fiom any defect in the machine, nor from deticient hear ing, liut from mability to tix the at tention on what is heard. Thistroitbb leadily dis;ipiears by practice iu listeu ing closely to what is said over tho wire. Indeed, the attention may be tnuneil to an ahnnriiial developinent, as in the case of tho head operator at the central ollice, who has been in tho telephoning business for fonr years; she has so accustoiued herself to lix her atteutiou on tho uiachine beforo her, and to abstraet her atteutiou from hor siirroumliugs, that when she is in her home sho often fails to hear when sho is addressed by inembers of tho family. Sniililit :! Wiitilsilioii. The freo adiiiissiou of air and sun light to every part of a houso is equally importaiit witli good drainage aud a stirrtiumliiig pnre, dry atmosphcre. I'eoplo who live iu dark houses aie usually pallid aml languid ; artilicial darkness iu tlie tlaytiine has the same physical aml meiital ell'ect as the dark ness of night, especially if people loungeorlio down ; it inipcdcs vital activity by letardiug circulatiou and lowering the action of tho heart ; inen tal action is lessened, because the brain lacks the stimulus of light. In the throbbing headacho of uiegrim the pain is iutensiflei by light 'anrinotimr, aml daikness aud silence aro remeilial agents ; in certain acute nervoiis dis onlers the absence of light and soiind is dcsirahlc for tho purpnso of loweiing vitality, but iu ordiuary sickuess, and esiiecially during eouvalescence, both light aml air shonld have freo adniis sion to the sick-room ; to excliide thein is to doprivo the iuvalid of one of the essential factors iu the lestoration of health, while it is a positivo injury to peisons in soiind health. Sleeping roonis, bcds, aml bcdiling shonld be tlooded with puie air aud siinlight ; if they can be open all day, the repose at uiglit will ho soumler aud more in vigorating thau if they aro only aired for a little while in tho moriiiug. The iractice of covering the mattress with tlny bedding early in tho day that is, of "niaking'' the bed -may be'ijood housewifery, but it would be better sense to have the oeilclothcs tlirown or looscly Ibhled over the footboard of tlie bed, aml the mattress lelt oxposed to tho air, or coveicd only by ono sheet. This if. ipiile possibe wliole sleepiug roonis aro itscil only for repose. It is not well to make sitting-rooius of them. Tlio sleeping rooius of per.-ons in good health shonld be as plaitily nifheil as is cou.-.isteut with coinfort ; all suiierlliious drapory aml upholstery should be avoided, aml the llooi shonld bo coveied at tlie bcd'side with a rug, rather than entiiely by a carpet ; waxed or paintcd tloors, or mattings are preferable to carpets for sleeping apartiiieuts. The bed shonld have a mattiess over sprmgs rather than feathers; it should bo so placed as to permit tlio fiee circulatiou of air and the bedding should combino warinth with lightness. As has already been said, blankets aie preferable to com forters; au eider-down (jcilt is, of couiso, the lightest aml warinest of all bed-coverings, but it is open to the saint) nhjcctiou that applies to feathers thodilliciilty of thorough veutilatiou. Stationary wash-stumls, or siuks, con necting diu-ctly with tho wasto pipe Ieadiug to tho sewer, aro not. only nu desiralile, but often daugerous iu bed rooius, because they allow tho eecape into the rnom of iinpuro air and sower gas ; this is especially to bo fcaretl in country houses which aro uscil only part of the year. When draius aud cisterns aro not used they beconio tilled with iioiMinous gascs ; tlioso gradually lind their way through tho pipes into the atmospheie of tho house, which is generally alniost heriiietically closed from tlm fiesh outer air. In coiniiion prudeiice such houses should bo thor tmghly aired aml disinfected when they aie opeued for summer occiipaucy. I)r. Kichaidsou says that such poisonous emanations, which are analogoits to tlioso prodiicing epidemie diseases, aie leudered ilinoclious by the fiee admis siou of air aud suuliglitto houses. Tho diseases to be feared from such atmos pherie poisons aie diphtheria, typhoid fever, aud similar zymotic atlections. A iiei'i-:iii Iliiuior. The "Anierican huiiior" which now goes by the name, and has attracted such world-wide notoriety, is not, properly, speaking, literary liuiuor at all, says tho New York Evening l'ost.

Artemus Waid aml Josh liilliugs, wo should say, lopiesent it iu its earlier aml piuor stato, aud now it is repre sented by a dozen paragraphcrs, whose jokes mako us laugli very often for the same re.-tson that tlio sight ol a inan chasiiig his hat in a liigh wiml will alwavs amuse the bystamlcrn a fact for tho true exphiuation of which wi should have to plungo deep into tlu icces.-es of the liumaii heait.
