Statistics for Girls.
A young Englitik statistician wno wa paying court to a young lady thought tc surprise her with liis immcns? erudition. Producing liia notebook, sho tlionght he was about to indite a lore sonnet, but was slightly taken aback by tho follow ing question: y "How many meals do you eat every dayr I ""Why three, of course ; but of all the oddest questions " "Xevcr mind, dear; I'll tell you all about it in a moment." His pencil was rapidly at work. At last, fondly clasping li?r Blender waist: "Now, my darling, I've got it, and if you wish to know how mum has passed that adorable little liltlo mouth m the lust seventeen years, I can give you tho exact figures." "Goodness gracious I 'What can you mean?" "Now just listen," says he, "and you will hear exactly what you have been obliged to absorb to maintain those charms which aro to make the happiness of my life." "But I don't want to hoar." "Ah. you arc surprised no doubt; but statistics nre wonderful things. Just listen: You aro now seventeen years old, m tliat in fifteen years you have absorbed oxen or calros, 5 ; fclieep and lambs 14; chickens, S27; ducks, 04; poese, 12; turkeys, 100; game of various kinds, 62-i; fishes, ICO; cgs,S,120 ; vege- cheese. 103 : bread, cake, etc in sacks of flour, 40 ; wine (barrels, 11 ; gallons of water, 8,000. At this the maiden revolted, and jomp iug up. erdaitnad: 2I think you are very impertinent, and disgusting beside, and I will not stay to listen to you!" upon which, ehe flew into the house. "If 6bekept talking at that rate, twelve hours out ci twenty-four, her jaws would in twenty years travel a distance of 1,332,124 niilos." The maiden, within two monTHR. mar tied a well-to-do green grocer who ws no statistician. Papa and Xasuns. We 'aro often amused et tlie habit crave mlddle-aced people have of ad dressing eaeh other as papa and mamma. It is equally as droll to near ine same appellation from the lips of young gen tlemen and ladies whose eldest boys have not yet exchanged little dresses for a distinctively masculine costume. Tho orcttv Christian name of the vonnz wife ia as little used as though she had never had it. tibe is no longer .Florence or Edith, or Susan, but always and every where "Mamma," as though all her wo manhood liad been condensed in the one absorbing crucible of the small per son she holds in her arms. Even the occasional pet, or darling, or mignonne, which used to slip from the husband's tongue in moments of inadvertence, to tho covert amusement of the chance lis tener, is at present a thing of by-gone days. She is only quecn-dowagcr now. mother of the reigning monarch, and recognized as such by her little world, to the excluding of every -other claim en her part for consideration. So with the youthful father. He was formerly Jrank, Jonathan, or Hezckiab, but these euphonious cognomens are buried be neath, new formations, and at lost to view as tho primitive rock under tho sparkling mica or tho golden clinging moss. "Papa likes this," "papa disap proves of that" "papa's will Is law," on sen-es, wmi aigmiy, mo lady of llio gen tleman who is nana to the midget in (ho cradle, the wee, round-faced, wrinkled mite in flannel and cambric, who takes so little room and makes so much dis proportionate noise in the world. (As the children grow older it is sin gular to notice how the parents caress ingly continue to allude to themselves -always in tha third person when speak "Ing to their offspring. It is "Mamma uicver sits with her foot uuder her, Pollv;" "Papa never wears out the knees of Ins mnxpr Tom t" "Mamma's feelings are hurt, Louise ? "Papa is very sorry, but ho will be obliged to whip you, Jock." It does not occur to cither of the firm matrimonial that is quite as straightfor ward to say, I will do so and so," and a trifle more emphatic and impressive. The adoption of these trifles was at first a sign and corroboration to all tho world of 'the happiness the wearers felt in bo longing to tho great army of parents. . Insensibly the trick of their invariable use became confirmed, and at last it grew - too inveterate to be noticed or dropped - even on formal occasions. Pet names of nil sorts Bhould be sa- - eredly kept and confined to the privacy " of kame. They are not part and parcel - of society's knowledge of us and our ways of living. Married people, as well -i as others, should preserve in public a -certain polished propriety of manner -consistent with using the Christian name - in addressing each other, but, except to and among intimate ftienda, rigidly -confining mutual allusions to the formal Mr. and Mrs, or the dignified "my hus band" and "my wife." As for papa and Mamma, let the children keep them for their own, and so far as tho persons themselves aro implicated, let them be used only in the nursery. The DltcoTcry of Matches." Thestorv of this discovery has been told bv Mr. Holden himself In the house of commons before a select committo ap pointed to inquire into the working or "the patent laws. We cannot do better, -therefore, than eive It in his own words: "I began as an inventor on a very small -scale," said Mr. Holden in tho course of iis evidence. "Tor what I know I was the first invcutorof luciier matches; but it was lite result of a happy thought. In the moruing I used to got up at four o'clock in order to pursue my studies, and I used at that time the flint and steel, in the use of which I found very j-reat inconvenience.
