It's pouring dnwn in' torrents," uud all the windows are np J' He cannot wake up under such cir cumstances with an . immediately clear conception of the case ; in fact,- it fre quently happens that he is way out on the floor before his eyes are fairly open, having but one idea really at work, and that as to what he is doing out of bed. The first thing to do is to strike a light, and while he is moving around for the matches, and swearing that some one has broken into the house and moved them from where he had lain them on going to bed, (which is always plausible enousb,) she hurls after him the follow ing tonics; ?'Do hurry! Merry, how that rain is coming into those windows ! We'won't have a carpet left if you don't hurrvun! What on earth are you do ing all this time ? Can't find the match es ? Mercy 6ake, you ain't going to stumble round here looking for matches, are you. when the water is drowning us out?

You always would have your own way, and I s pose you always will, and now you can do as you please ; but don't you dare to open your mouth to trie about it when the ruin's done.

Just then he finds the matches, and breaks the discourse by striking a light lie was bound to liave that help before 1 ha moved out of the room. He has got the lamo lighted aow. ; No sooner doe3 its glare fill the room than he immedi att-ly blows it out again for obvious rea sons. He had forgotten the windows were open and the brevity of his: night shirt. It almost causes him to shiver wherr he thinks ol his narrow escape . He moves out into the,other room with celerity now.' He knows pretty well the directions to 20. and when a flash of lightning ; comes it shows him on the verge of climbing over a stool or across the center table. If there is a rocking chair in the. house he will strike it. A rockin-chair is much Surer in its aim than a streak of lightning: It never misses, and never hits a man in but one spot, and that U just at the base of the shiu. We have fallen against more than eight hundred rockers of all patterns and prices.and always received the. first blow in the one place. - We have been with dyiog people, and have heard them af- nrra.in the solemn husu ot me last uour, that a, rocking chair always hits a man on the shin first., ' And when a man gels up in the dead of niht to shut dowu.windows.he never misses the rocking chair. ; It is the rear end of one of the rockers which catches him. It is a dreadful agony. But he rarely cries out.. He knows his audiehdc too well. A woman never falls over , a rocking chair, and she will never under stand why a man does. But she can tell whether he has.by the way he puts down the. windows when he finally reaches them. ' A rocking chair window (if we may bo allowed the term) can be heard three times' as far as any other. A Little Mistake.

Short Hints Concerning Sickness, Don't whisper in tho sick-room. When the doctor comes, to see you.re member how many pairs of stairs he has to climb every day, and go down to him if you are well enough. ' When you are setting up at night with a patient, be sure to have something to eat, if you wish to save yourself unne cessary exhaustion. . Remember that sick people are not ne cessarily idiotic or imbecile, and that it is not always wise to try persuade them that their suffering are imaginary. . They may even at times know best what, they need. , : .. . . Never deceive a dying person unless by the doctor's express orders. It is not only wrong to allow any soul to go into eternity, without preparation, but how can you tell but that be has something he ought to tell or. do beiore he goes away? ' ' "" If you have a sick friend to whom you wish to be of use, do not content yourself with sending her flowers and jelly, but lend her one of your pictures to hang up in place of hers, or a bronze to replace the one at which she is tired of staring. , - i , i . Don't have needless conversations with the doctor outside of the sick-room. Nothing will excite and irritate a ner vous putient sooner. If you do nave such conversations, don't tell the patient that the doctor said "nothing." ..He won't believe you, and he will imagine the worst possible. - In lifting the sick, do not taKe tucm by the shoulders and drag them up to the pillows, but get some one to help you.. Let one stand on one side of the patient, the other opposite, then join hands un der the shoulders and hips,and lilt stead ily and. promptly together. This method is easy for those who lift, and does not disturb the one who is lifted. , Do not imagine that your duty is over when you have riursed your patient through his illness-, and he is about the house, or perhaps going out again. Strength does not come back in a mo ment, and the days when little .things worry and little efforts ' exhaust, when the cares of business begin to press, but the feeble brain and hand refuse to think and execute, are the most trying to the sick one, and then comes the need of your tenderest care, your most unobtru sive watchfulness.
