The Gnome of the Fairy ' Grotto. mX IMETHYAT WAYNE. sat lislitly in h golden chariot drawn bv twosnow-whiteswaus. "The queen ! the queen !" cnert u all the une, sweet voices 01 iuo fairies, and every one knelt a moment 4a- fervent atortiiou. The fairy cittern bowed graciously, and the swans drew the chariot to the edge of the water, and the five fairies in snow white dresses assisted the riueen to alight and she Dassed through the pathway of kneeling subjects tip to the steps of the throne within the banunet ball. It was a pretty siffht indeed, when the charming little" fairy people gathered around ttio throne with their gifts. Ar- thnr could hardlv restrain his delight When it was Nimble Toe's turn to ad--vance with the little piuk lady, Arthur leaned T forward eaeerlr to watch the nneeiTa face as she received the silver wer Unfortunately he stepped on a stone, and tumbled down, his face In the grass. He sprang to his feet at once.and rubbed his eves. Where was be? The t'ainr srotto and banouet hall, and moon lls-ht. and enchanted scene, had entirely vanished. There he was under the chestnut tree, with his back against the trunk, and his straw hat on the ground beside him, and in the western sky the sun still rode full two hours high. Had he been asleep? Had he dreamed it all? He indinantly repelled the thought, and determined to insist that he had really, been among the fairies. And then seeing his hat, he started for home to relate to his mother all the wonderful things he had seen. She listened with a great deal of interest. "O mother, mother !" cried Arthur, iu xaouluakmi'iiix't It a shame we mortals can't have a gnome, too?",. , 'I am very sure we have one,' she an swered. - ' - - ' " WJiat as good as the fairies chang ing such common things into such lion and beantiful ones?" demanded he, in--eredulously. MTo be sure." "O mother, where does he live? why haven't I ever heard of him? when can I see him?" "-"A good many questions to answer all at once," answered his mother, smiling, 'I see you are not thoroughly convinced bnts-I will eertainly take you to the gnome, to-morrow." " 1 Arthur clapped his Iiands. ' - "Could I carry anything to he made into gold? ' : ' "Certainly not, till you are older, my boy who knows what you may do then ? But I promise you shaft receivo benefit. "Sow go to your supper, which has been waiting for yon some time." You may believe Arthur had enough to think about the rest of tho day. The l'uirie 7 cavern did not bauut him more than this wonderment concerning the human gnome lie was to see on the mor row. Ilia mother would give him no information, but quietly informed him the next morning when he came down to breakfast they were going to the city. "So the gnome lives there," thought Arthur, and he dispatched the meal with unwonted alacrity. Having long ago been taught the use ful lesson of forbearance in asking idle questions, Arthur did not . tease Ids mother after they reached town, but kept eyes and ears alert. HU mother took him first to a private house, and when her name was given, the servant who announced their sum mons to the door, ushered them into a library, where a pale,careworn man was busy at work writing. He looked Hp with a cheerful sinile when he saw Ar thur's mother, and threw down his pen with a sigh of relief. -"All, Cousin Mary, how do you do ? It is quite refreshing to see your cherry face again. And this I suppose is my -friend Arthur's namesake. Come here, young gentleman." "Yes, dear Richard, this is our son 'Arthur; and I have ventured to intrude upon your valuable time for the sake of teaching him a useful lesson. Can you spend a few moments to visit T ?", "Certainly, with the utmost pleasure. I have too few calls into the open air." 'First, Arthur must tell you what he has been dreaming about the fairies, and I think you will need no further hin. from me, concerning my programmet Come, Arthur, tell the gentleman what vou saw iu your visit to Mr. Kimble Toe." Arthur felt diftident about telling his story before the strange gentleman, but he was a boy used to prompt obedieuee to his parents, and, though with down cast eyes and trembling voice, he com menced at once. ' The gentleman looked so good-natured and so interested, that Arthur soon for got his embarrassment, and warmed up with his subject. ... "Bravo t" . cried Mr. Kichard, when with glowing cheeks aud sparkling eyes the boy concluded his narrative. "And so you have really been on a visit to these delightful little fairy folk? I only wish you could have taken a few pencil 'sketches for us. That was indeed a won derful fellow, that gnome of the fairy grotto." . "But mother is going to show me one to-day, just as. wonderful, she says, "said the boy, eagerly. . - "Cousin ltiehard will take us to see the gnome who takes these little thin leaves of paper and turns them into gold, and a thousand other beautiful and desired shapes," interposed his mother, pointing smiling to Itho pile ol" closely written paper lying on the desk beside the gen tleman., . "All, ah! I catch your idea. Cousin Mary ; it is really quite ingenius. Yes, my little h?ro;yoit shall see the gnome." "And so cousin Kichard put on his hat and street coat, and went out with them and - led them along through crowded Ktreets, nor paused till he reached the broad doorway of a tall stono building. He - went into a small room fitted up with desks where seyoral gentlemen were busy writing, and spoke a few words, and then came back, and taking Arthur's hand led him down a flight of stairs into the basement. ' . It was a busy scene there. At the ex treme end was what looked like a great oven filled with burning coals, aud there were huge iron pipes runniugfroin it all about the long room. But this did not rivet Arthur's attention after hi eyes fell upon, three large black affairs, which after all made him think of the chained gnome. And what were they doing, with their restless iron arms flinging themselves to and fro? with their sriant hands sliding here and there ? What were those white sheets so swiftly and unerringly taken up, carried to the press, and then laid on the ever-accu- lnnlatiug pile? I . "Why, mother," exclaimed Arthur, "it is a printing-press." -i:.Ycs, dear, aud it is a more powerful magician, and has wrought greater won ders than, any gnome of fairy grotto. .See you not, how the pattern is brought hither aud, and straightway it comes how the beautiful thought Is transformed from a dewdrop to a pearl that can be ctrung for ornament iu many houses. How it finds food for the hungry, work lor the restless, proht and improvement for the whole wide world ?" Arthur looked profoundly thoughtful. and eyed the wonderful thing, which In deed seemed like a living creature, with awe and amazement. Presently his new friend led him up stairs to a large room filled with books in rich and elegant bindings. lie saw several ladies and gentlemen purchasing, and as they paid tiie money, Cousin Richard said, smilingly: So you perceive the gnome brings gold luto oi ir pockets, Arthur, which will provide silver ewers and gems, as many as we please. What, then, do you say to our mortal gnome, mv boy t ' "Thnt it is strange I did not think to tell Mr. nimble roe about it," answered Arthur. Cousin Richard put into his hands a box of fresh, new books, when ttiey par ted, and Arthur returned home. When they stepped into the cars his mother pointed to the locomotive whizzing and pufllng at the head of the train. "Another gnome, Arthur, and a very powerful and useful one you will admit, and on these wires tnat touow tne ran. road plays the "touch of another potent magician. Ab. my child, the fairies need not pltv us '" Arthur Rlipped his hand lovingly into his mother's. "I)car mamma, I always feel as If you had put spectacles on my eyes when you talk to mo. I think I shall keep finding these helpful spirits all the time, yow I ain sure I shan't regret so much that the door is sealed so I cannot find again theGnome of the Fairy Grotto." AGRICULTURAL Butter milking cannot be classed a a sciuce, but rattier an art, which must i be learned mostly bv exiierience. There ' is a sort of skill about it that cannot be detected by lookers or, nor hardly ex plained by the maker, but it must be acquired by practice and perseverance. Positive rules may be laid down for each and every operation" in its nianu- lacture, but circumstances arc so va rious, that rules founded upon the high est success in one instance, might not prove to be just right under different circumstances. Every meadow, every pasture, is a battle-field, where plants of different j kinds are fighting for their chances, j Supply your friends with what they want freely and they will overpower their opponents without further assist ance. The washing down by rain from hilly, stony pastures of soluble mineral substances takes subs is tan ce from the plants we desire to encourage. Spread rich soil, guano, wood ashes upon a peaty, swamp turf, where you never be fore saw white clover or useful grasses, aud suddenly they will make tlieir ap pearance -without even being sown. They have been there before, waiting only for a better chance, but you conld not see them, for they were overrun by coarser plauu aud powerless from star vation. , Eaelt Flowers and Vegetables. It is not every family that can possess a hot bed in which to start early flowers and vegetables ; yet all can have them by the expenditure of a . little more trouble. A kitchen window if the lo cation is sunny, will supply all the light one needs to raise a lew asters, oaisams, stocks, verbenas, etc. ; and touiato, pep per, cabbage and lettuce plants can also be started in small boxes for flower pots. Take good, light soil; if possible mix it with leal mould, well crumDieu up; bake the earth to destroy all the larvas of worms, etc., and plant your seeds over the surface, when the sou is cool to the band, scatter scouring sa.ua iignt- ly over the seeds, shade lrom the sun for three or four days, and soon you will have Quantities of plants of all kinds. Be sure to plant your seed spar ingly ; do not crowd the plants, thereby making them spindling and sickly, and Aoiielnn' 4-riom f r KiMAmA " tt'frwlpflwn." If they do grow tall and slender, pinch off the upper leaves, and this will make them more stocky: When they are two or three inches "high, transplant into thumb pots or large boxes, giving them room enough to grow. Keep the plants : in the direct rays of the suu during the j greater part of the day. The kitchen is the best place for plants during the day removing to a warmer room at night ir it has the sun because tne air Is moist, and with an outer door it is of ten freshened. Thus with little ex pense and some care, every family can supply itself with all the early flowers and vegetables they may desire. Sawing Timber. When we consider the fencing and farm-buildings required by our more than four million farm.-, if reckoned atone hundred and fifty dol lars, annually, to each farm, making six1 millions of dollars, and -when: U the uses of wooii are considered, few men who have traveled widely, and observed and estimated closely, will deny that more than one thousand million dollars In products is derived from our forests annually five times the value of orr largest cotton crop, ten times the pro duction of our pig iron, twelve, times our production of gold and silver, and four times our wheat crop, Tudeed, few single interests exceed in value the enormous production of our forests. How to cut timber with saws scientifi cally may be treated of in another ar ticle, and I will only at this time point out some of the advantages over the wasteful and primitive ax. First, saw the trees down; they can be cut closer and with greater economy than by chop ping, and by the use of wedges felled iu any desired direction. They can be cut with less labor, if the operator knows how, and uses the most improved saw. If the trea be deslgued for fuel, the saving by sawing it the length de sired on the ground in the forest is manifest. If for stove-wood, the blocks may be carted without splitting, and when thus sawed, trees that any chop per would leave to rot in the forest, be come instantly available; for who does not know that a ono-foot block may be split easier than one of four feet, be sides saving the immense waste of a chip afoot in width? From onethlrd to one-quarter of the trees In many forests are what woodmen regard as " culls," and lough timber; this, added to the saving of the chips, makes fully one third of the forests available for fuel that might otherwise be wasted and re main an obstruction and incumbrance. Saw-logs and dimension-timber, fenc ing, posts, etc., in the Northern States are now usually sawed, but in a recent trip through all the Southern States (except Texas), I noticed in mill and lumber-yards the splintered ends of saw logs cut with axes; .indeed, this is the feneral method of country mills there, ut improved methods will soon pre vail everywhere in all wood-cutting. Now let us consider the time and labor saved by sawing, instead of chopping. To cut one hundred million cords of wood with the ax requires as many days' labor, and as many dollars; if the use of hand cross-cut taws be substituted, and only one-half the labor bo saved, the fifty millions now thrown away are gained, besides the immense waste of fuel, making in the two items an annual saving of an amount equal to the inter est of the national debt, Agriculturist. Educating Farmeks. It is now uni versally admitted, at least by all sensi ble persons, that farmers require a spe cific course of education one adapted to their calling aud calculated to fit them for its pursuits as much as law yers, or doctors, or clergymen. Not that farming is a matter of "theory mere ly; it must be learned by practice as much as any mechanical trade; but mere hard work will not make an intel ligent farmer, nor can it, as a general thing, make a successful one. Farming is both a science and an art. .The sci ence cannot be learned simply by tilling the soil, nor can the art be learned from books. It is by overlooking this combi nation that some practical farmers on the one hand have decried agricultural education, and oo the other hand sci entific farmers have shown such a poor fist at practical farming. Study and practice, kno-vledge ami apprenticeship must go together to ensure the highest success. In this connection we make a significant extract from an " Address to the Agricultural Organizations in the United States, prepared by the National Agricultural Association, at Nashville, October 3d, 1771," which was read at the recent Convention at Washington, D, C. The history of the last quar ter of a century records nothing of more importance to the world at large than the rapid and wide-spread uplifting of the business of agriculture from a condi tion wherein neither knowledge nor skill were requisite, but only"" brute force, to that wherein a wider range of knowledge and a higher skill may find ample employment, than is demanded In any other calling. This is no vain boast, but a fact standing out in bold re lief and challenging the attention of ev ery thoughtful student of the present times. The history of this uprising, though brief, is brimful of interest and instruction, It is not thflk result of any one discovery, though mapy discoveries have contributed thereto 5 nor the pro? duct of any one invention, though many inventions have aided. Like all great results, It Is the product of many com bined forces ; the effect of .many far reaching causes. Fully to understand, or rightly to appreciate this great up lifting, it is necessary to reckon the number and measure the extent of the agencies operating to produce It. To enumerate these were almost to Qatar logue the arts and sciences, while to de tail their operations were to write the history of the times ; either is much be yond our purpose. It suffices to say that agriculture has come to be recogized as a science and an art second to none oth er known to man. And, henceforth, the man who aspires to the foremost place as an agriculturist, must needs acquaint himself with a wide range of sciences, aud master the principles of many atts. In othor words, the farmer now needs his schools and bis colleges as much as the lawyer and the physician schools and colleges, too, of equal grade and wider compass. This is the moaning of the movement that, iu the world of ed ucation, marks the present irom all oth er times. Industrial schools and col leges have arisen during the present cen tury in every civilized country through out Christendom. Results so wide spread, aud yet so uniform, can only flow from a force deep-seated, far-reaching and Irresistible. That force Is the uprising of the industrial classes," RELIGIOUS NEWS.

Worn-oct preachers have claims on the Church, and the Methodist Confer ence at .N ewark, last weeK, considered them and resolved to providefor them.

The immorality of this "moral theology" is well known, and the g.-at historian will no doubt, give us a trenchant volume. Two new convents are to be founded in the city of Posen, and it is said that more will follow in the province. The funds are subscribed with great liberalty by the Ultramontane nobility.

The native minister at Diarbekir, pastor Bojagian, who is much esteemed for his piety and talent, has gathered a large congregation for which the church has been erected. It is the largest Protestant church in Tur key, holding about 2,000. Many people from the neighboring towns attended the ceremony, feeling great interest in the , event, which was one of bright promise in those regions of darkness and error. The veteran Bishop Gobat, of Jerusa lem, has been engaged in missionary la bor in the East nearly half a centuary. On the recent completion of a quarter of a century of his Episcopate, Christian missionaries, friends and representatives of various evangelical societies at Jeru salem, presented to him a testimonial, and it is now proposed to raise in Eng land a tribute in the form of a Special Fund for 'the support of the various schemes of Education and Evangeliza tion under his care. There are doubtless many iu this country who would desire to share in making this memorial, Cop tribntions may be sent tq the London Uncord.

My conviction grows every day stronger, more profound, that France can be saved by Christianity alone; but I am no less profoundly convinced that she will never accept Christianity in its present form, and In this she is right.

Charlei Yardley, of Pittsburg, Pa., savs: "I wish to tell how I cured my cancer last summer without pat u or money. .Eight years ago a cancer came on my nose. It grew slowly for several years; the last two years ii grew very fast. It became frightful. It had begun to eat out my left eve. I had paid hundreds of dollars, and had tried docter3far and near, with out finding relief. Last summer I drank wild ta, putting the tea-grounds on ray cancer every night as a poultice. In six weeks my cancer was cured. I am now 62 years old. I have given this remedy to several that had cancer, and know two that have been cured since. I believe wild tea grows over the country gener ally, always on high land." Gall Soap, Gall soap, for washing of fine silken cloths and ribbons, is pre pared m tuc ioliowing manner: in a vessel of copper one pound of cocoanut oil is heated to 60 deg. Fahr., whereupon half a pound of caustic soda is added with constant stirring. In another ves sel, half a pound of Venetian turpen tiue s heated, and when quite hot, stirred Into the copper kettle. The ket tle is then covered aud left for four hours, being gently heated, after which the lire is increased until the contents are perfectly clear, whereupon one pound of ox gall is added. After this enough good, perfectly dry Castile soap is stirred into the mixture to cause the whole to yield but little under the press ure of the fingers; for which purpose, from one to two pounds of soap are re quired for the above quantity. After cooling, the soap Is cut into pieces. It is excellent, and will not injure the finest colors. Improvement in Glue Kettles. Every cabinet maker has been annoyed by the tendency of the glue which runs down from the brush, to dry and harden upon the outside of the kettle the incrusta tion thus formed sometimes reaching half an inch in thickness, or even more. To overcome this difficulty, have three or four small holes drilled in the side of the kettle, close to the top rim, The kettle being set into the cooler, the steam rising from the water surrounding the kettle passes through the holes and keeps the interior of the kettle above the surface of the glue constantly moist. The glue which drips from the brush will therefore run down and re-unite with the mass, instead of hardening and adhering to the side, and the kettle is thus kept clean, however much used. The holes should be confined to one-half or two-thirds of the circumference of the kettle, in order that the ptacc may be left at which to pour out the glue when desired. To Gild by Burnishing. For picture frames, mouldings, headings, fine stucco work. fec, the surface to be gilt must be carefully covered with a strong size, made by boiling down pieces of white leather, or clippings of parchment, till they are reduced to a jelly ; this coating being dried, eight or ten more must be applied, consisting of the same size, mixed with fine piaster of Paris, ox washed chajk; when a sufficient number of iayers have been put on, (varying according to the nature of the work,) and the whole has become quite dry, a moderately thick layer must be applied, composed of size and Armenian hole, or yellow oxide of lead whle this last is yet moist, the gold leaf is to be put on in the usual manner; it will immediately adhere on being pressed by the cotton ball, and before the size is perfectly dry, those parts which are intended "to be the most brilliant are to be carefully burnished by an agate or a dog's tooth. When dirty, it may be cleaned by a soft brush, with hot spirits of wine or oil of turpentine. Omelets. Few articles of food are so readily attainable, so attractive in ap pearance, and so quickly cooked as ome lets. A good and economical onielet is made wfh fonx eggs, well beaten, and added to one cup of milk, into which has been stirred one tablespoonful of pounded cracker and one small teaspoon ftil of flour, Stir the mixture well to gether just before pouring it on the well-buttered griddle, which should not be too hot, lest the omelet should have a strong flavor of scorched butter. Turn it as soon as it begins to "set" around the edge, with awide-bladed knife; fold it over once, and then again, and at once lift the griddle, and turn the omelet pp on a warm plate, It will, of course, be of four thicknesses. The best and really nicest omelet is made with one egg to one spoonful of milk. For an unex pected guest, this one egg omelet is just the thing for luncheon or tea, as it is so easily made and turned off the griddle so handsomely. A very good omelet is made, by preparing a uiinee-meat of boiled ham, or cold veal, or chicken, well seasoned, and after the egg is poured upon the griddle, immediately scattering on a thick layer of the mince and then folding the "omelet as usual. Never put salt luto an omelet, Poached or scrambled eggs shonld always be served on square pieces of toasted bread, which have been dipped for an Instant in hot water and buttered. Mi nee-meat to be nicely served, shonld always be accompanied by toast in the same way. Gold Powder. Gold powder for gild ing may be prepared in three different ways : Put into an earthen mortar some gold leaf, with a little honey or thick gum water, and grind the mixture till the gold is reducee to extremely minute particles, When this is done, a little warm water will wash out the honey or gnin, leaving the gold behind in a pul verulent state. Another way Is, to dis solve pure gold, or the leaf in nitro mu riatic, and then to precipitate it by a piece of copper, or by a solution of sul phate of iron. The precipitate (if bv copper) must be digested in distilled vinegar, and then washed; (by pouring WSter oyer t repoatedy,) and dried. This precipitate will be in the form of a very fine powder j it works better, and is more easily burnished than gold leaf ground in honey as above. The best method of preparing gold powder, how ever, is by heating a prepared amalgam of gold lu an open clean cmcible, and continuing the strong heat until the whole of the mercury be evaporated j at the same time constantly stirring the amalgam with a glass rod. When the mercury has completely left tiie gold, the remaining powder is to be ground lu a mortar, mixed with a little pure water, and afterwards dried. It is then fit fpr use, Although the last modo of operating has been here given, the oper ator cannot be too much reminded of the danger attending tho sublimation of mercury. In the limited way here de scribed, it is impossible to operate with out danger; it is therefore better to pre pare It aocordljig to the former Instruc tions, than to risk the health by the latter. I "I believe women will do a great deal for a dance," said an old M. D.: "they j are immensely fond of port. I reinem- j ber once iu my life I used to flirt with j one who was a great favorite in a pro- vincial town where I lived, and she con- ! filled to me that she had no stockings to i appear in, and that without them her f presence at a ball was out of the ques- ' tion." i "That was a hint for you to buy the SUM-Kings, said a iriena. No; you're out," said the Doctor. She knew that I was as poor as herself; but, though she could not rely on my purse, she had every conndenoe in my taste aud judgment, and consulted ineou a plan she had formed for goiug to the i ii : . - i ' i uaii in piopei inui. .mjw, nac uo you think it was?" To go in cotton, I suppose," returned the friend. "Out again, sir. You'd never guess it, and only a woman could have hit j upon the expedient. It was the fashion j in those days for ladies in full dress to j wear pink .stockings, and she proposed painting her legs." 'Pamttug her legs:" exclaimed his friend. Fact, sir," said the Doctor ; "and she relied upon me for telling her if the cheat was successful." "And was it?" asked his friend. "Don't be in a hurry, friend. I com piled on one condition, namely, that I should oe the painter." "Oh, you old racal !" said his friend. "Don't interrupt me, gentlemen," said the Doctor. "I got some pink ac cordingly, and I defy all the hosiers in Nottingham to make a tighter fit than I did on little Jennie. A prettier pair of stockings I never saw." "And she went to the ball?" "She did." "And the trick succeeded?" "So completely," said the Doctor, "that several ladies as ted ner to recom mend her dyer to them. So you see what a woman will do to go to a dance. Poor Jennie ! she was a merry minx. By the by, she boxed my ears that night tor a joke I had made about the stockings. 'Jennie,' said I, 'for fear your stockings should fall down while you are dancing, hadn't you better let me paint a pair of garters on them?"' Kew Orleans Pic agume. ' "" : "?' BOCK BEEIt. The arrival of the "Bock Beer season" brings with it a proper curiosity to know the origin of the peculiar custom so popular with our Tontoniceitizens. The tradition which has been in vogue for ?o long seems likely to be displaced by an account wherein more attention is given to fact than fancy. One of the institutions in Munich, iu the olden times, was the official brewer-, which was established by royal au thority, and which for a long time was an important source of revenue to the Prince. In the sixteenth century there was a great rage for a new kind of beer, which was perfectly white, but which is not now made. It was to brew this white beer that the official brewery was estab lished. Later, however, this old brew ery was devoted exclusively to the man ufacture of Book, a kind "of beer first made in Einbock of Brunswick, whence it derived its name. The season opens on the 1st of May. For weeks before the opening, the cel lars of the old brewery are shut fast, aud as the tradition goes, the only being al lowed Inside is the Bock demon, who su perintends the perfection of the bever age. Two days before the opening oc curs "the oltieial testing. In ancient times three lords of the cup were dressed in stag leather and sealed upon a bench. They drank the "Bock" from two pots, and if at the expiration of an hour they could uot stand up, the beer received the verdict of approval. If, however, they were aide to stand up the beer was pro nounced a failure. Of later years a select company assem bles in the the cellars to test the beer and are expeeted to do so without getting fuddled. As they come out of the vault they are waylaid by anxious crowds eager to learn of the quality of the beer. Upon May Day the rooms and casks are dressed with boughs of fir, music is pro vided and the people are Invited to help themselves. During the season the brewery is crowded with men, and the beer is believed to be the best lu the world. The rooms are dingy and for lorn, with the immense casks tilted up iu the corners. The benches and tables are of the coarsest description, and the place might readily be taken for one of tne lowest beer shops. It is, however, the most democratic plaoe lu all Ger many, for here may be seen side by side the highest officers of the state drinking "Bock" with the humblest peasants. A DESERVING CHARITY, On the sea coast there is a little town called St, Servan, which in 1840 was so flljod with aged and destitute widows, made by the ravages of wind and waves, that a poor priest began to resolve In his mind a plan for aiding them. He se lected two young girls Marie Therese and Marie Augustine to whom, after giviDg this rule, ( We will delight above all things in showing tenderness toward those aged poor who are Infirm and sick, and we will never refuse to assist them, provided an occasion pre sents itself." he left them to con template gave them an ld blind wo man la take care of. By accident they became acquainted with an old servant, Jeanne Jugan, who entered into their plans and invited them to her attic, which she shared with a pious old woman, Fanchon Aubert. Scarcely acknowleding their intention of founding an institute, they devoted themselves to the service of the poor, trusting entirely to charity for their support. From such humble beginning sprang the community known as The Little Sisters of the Poor that has proven such an incalculable blessing to France and has canunonced jts work of charity In this country, The work "in New York was com menced in 1870 and they have at pres ent three houses, Now, 445, 447, 419 West Thirtysp.ooijd streot, unde-r their eha.-ge where they are taking care of one hun dred and twenty old men and women. Tiie sisters take absolute charge of them, giving them food, clothing and nursing tiiem when sick. For this work they have no fund, no pensions, depending entirely on charity. Having secured a plot of ground m Seventeenth street, near Third avenve, they desire putting up a building which will contain three hundred, and for that purpose solicit the assistance of nil who. recognize in their selftdenying efforts their love fer humanity. At their houses, now occu pied, donations of all kinds are thank fully received and visitors are invited to call every day from 11 to 5. Those who in their daily walk abroad encoun ter so many aged aud destitute will read ily see the necessity for such an institu tion, and the humble and self-sacrificing life of the Little Sisters should do much to elicit sympathy for the inline ate project iu which they are engaged. JiEVEK iMIXM KIKI.Xi EARI.V. All this talk about early rising is all moonshine. The habit of turning out of bed iu the middle of the night suits some people; lot them enjoy it. ' But it is only tony to lay down a general rule upon the subject. Some men are fit for nothing all day after 1 hey have risen early in the morning. Their energies are deadened, their imaginations are heavy, their spirits .ire depressed. It is said you can work as well in the mornlug. Some people can, but others can work best at night; others, again, in the afternoon. Long t.ial and experi ence Jform the only conclusive tost on these points. As' for getting up early, because Professor Gammon has writcn letters to the papers proving the neces sity of it, let no one be goose ciiouirh to do it. We all know the model man. eighty "I invariahlo rlsa at fives 1 work three hours, take a light breakfast, namely; a cracker and a pinch of salt; work four hours more; never sinoke; never drink anything but barley water: eat no dinner, and go to bed at six iu the evening." If anybody finds that doukificd sort of life suits him bv all means let him continue it. But few people would caro to live to eighty ou these terms, If a man cannot get well withered and crumbled up on easier terms than those, it is almost as well that he should depart before he is a nuisance to himself and a bore to evervbodv else.
