So far as our observation goes—and it covers many years of coutact with high and low, rich and poor.—we are constrained to say that, while umoog the poorer classes there is, as a general thing, a sad lack of external culture— of attention to little personal habits that are not agreeable to others, and which ongfat to be corrected—there is really, in ibe lower and middle ranks of socie ty, so called, quite as many trne gen tlemen and ladies as among these who claim the exclusive right lo these hon orable designations.

Husbands are always sour, or bitter, or tough, when cooked in this manner. The following recipe is warranted to render them sweet and tender: Put youfe husband in the jar of faithfulness ; place it near the fire of conjugal love ; keep the fire bright and clear and the heat constant ; cover biqt with affection and deference, spiced With chéerfulnesa ; kind kisses morning and servo warm with truthfulness. evening; If husbands cooked in this way are not good, they are of the hard-shell variety and should be thrown away.— Ex change.
