The whole figure ia lix times the length of the foot Whether tbe form be slender or plnmp, tbia rale holds good. Any deviation from it is a departure from the highest beauty of proportion. The Greeks make all their statues aeeording this rule. The faoe, from the highest point tha forehead, where the hair begins, to end of the chin, Is one-tenth of the whole stature. The hand, from the wrist to the of the middle finger, is the game. The ohost a foorlh, and from the nipples to the top the head ia the same, from the top of chest to the highest point of the forehead la seventh. If the length of the face, from- roots of the hair to the chin, be divided three equal parts, the first division determines where the eyebrows meet, and the aeoond place of the nostrils. The navel ii the cen tral part of the human body, and if a should lie on his back, with his arma extended, the preriphery of tbe circle whioh might desoribed around him, with thejavel for oenter, would touoh the extremities of hands and feet Xhe hlght from the feet tha ton of the head is the same as the distance from one extremity to the other when arms are extended. These are the general measurei of the species. - , . ., ' - Bochsa .Haydn by t Mri L. ...yoss . i ' The Aotval Past op a Lirs Eiiriovso.

A Paris eorrea Sendent writes : A new game has been intro ueed here, whioh to very popular. Let me confess to yon I think it abominably stupm, although it does require some sprightlineae of mind to condense a tnougnt in a single bod tenoej and as few eltlaens of ball-rooms think it may be in this way uaerui, Besides oioaing the gates for a moment on the flood of aeandal and Ill-natured speeob.es whleh flow through ball-room mouths, ana wttteu tney aignuy with tbe name of conversation. The came ia called "Bit of Paper." A half aheet of note paper and a lead pencil are given to every person in tne room. xaon person eecreuy writes one question upon it, folds it four times and nieces it in a hat. where they are all shaken up well together, until they are thoroughly mixed, men eaon person in turn goes up to tbe hat draws ons question out of It, and instantly answers it - - Ne one la allowed to draw a paper until his predecessor has answered the one the latter drew. The better to enable you to com prehend the game, I translate some questions and anawers I have seen: Questions Do you like Mademoiselle N.or M. of the Vaudeville theater?. Answer No. I don't like painted dolls. Q. What's the uae of men? A. Te keep women from sniolde. Q. What is a funeral ticket? A. Memory 'a embassador. Q.

The amateurs know this: they have a craving for the pen. and in one form or another go through the .discipline which is essential to their mental oulture. Ben Jonson used to say that be oould repeatevery line that he had ever written; and every man who writes with oare, weighing his worda, and fully understanding why in eaoh sentence he usea this term rather than that, ao that the choloe of diction depends on the nature of the discourse, and the nature of the discourse on the aeoessitiea of the aubject, muat have felt an arm roach to the aame nower. A It la more blessed to give than to reeeive, so In the mere aot of expressing our thoughts we attain to more nerfeot nosteeslon. There Is not an editor in the kingdom who doea not know what ia the practical reault of this natural craving for the pen, and perhaps the moat amnslng illustration of it, whleh la accessible to the pub lio. is the correspondence which appears in the penny daily paper. Any body who will take the trouble of looking at that oorrespondenoe wilt see how the popular mind ia at work, atrivine to write, and longing for expression In these voluntary effusions we can diatinotly trace the hand of the Incipient writer the man who writes because he want to write, and not becaas he has any apecial acquaintance witu tha subieot he I goins todlaoasa. " It ia impossible to cultivate the taste for reading without also exciting thia desire write. Not only ia It that we are imitative an imals, and lone to do what we admire to play the game as well as to see It played; the faot ia, that we never read latlsfactorily until learn to write. a to li if to of the end If of the a the into the be Ita his to the : Thi DsLioHtruL Fabioom op Paiib.
