There are two unrivalled steel en gravings; the first, "Cherry Ripe," an exquisite copy of Millais' cele brated picture ; the other, "Psyche Listening to the Flute," also excep tionally charming. Then there is a double-sized colored steel fashion plate, which is a picture as well ; and some thirty other fashion pat terns, besides a score of designs in embroidery, crewelwork, etc., etc Cut the great feature is a magnificent colored pattern in Berlin-work for a curtain-border, chair-stripe, etc., etc., the most expensive and beautiful, yet useful embellishment, perhaps, ever published in any magazine. There are two novelets, "The Pro fessional Beauty," by Frank Lee Benedict, and "Rule or Ruin," by Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, besides sev eral completed stories by other first class authors, and the very best al ways write for this magazine. The reading matter is increased also, there being one hundred and four pages in the number. "Petersen," in short, is cheaper and belter than ever for 1883. The price is still only two' dollars a year. To clubs it is aston ishingly low, viz: six copies for nine dollars, with an extra copy to the person getting up the club. Or seven copies for ten dollars and a half, with both an extra copy and a large-size engraving, "Christ Before Pilate," or a Photograph Album, to the person getting up the club.

Ilazen, Chief of the Gov ernment Signal Oflico at Washington D. 0., invites people to send him all sorts of popular weather proverbs and prognostications. Another View of It. The following amusing lines were writ ten by Dr. D. W. VanDyke, and were read by bim before the Mechanics' Institute, in Lebanon, lately : Once more, my friends, wo have a chance, Tj give some views on temperance. How strange a thing it is that we ITpon this subject can't agree. When you find a good thing, why use it, lint take good care not to abuse it. This plan is good, to me it seems, The way to keep from all extremes. The wise Apostle said, "to take A little for your stomach's sake." A little wine, just now and then, Ib relished by the best of men. Some one the wine will never touch, Another takes, at times, too much. A problem here, we now will state, These men are both intemperate. If they'd be brothers, they have got Each to yield his views somewhat. Hoth must start and leave their stations, Meet half way, then take their rations. Most thinking persons will despise The man who will not compromise. "Yielding pacifies great offenoes," And cures us of all our pretenses. If e'er a remedy be found, 'Twill be upon some middle ground. If we would heal the world's distresses, We must avoid all these excesses. The very hot or very cold, Is not so good for young or old: A maxim wise, we here will state, Always be good and temperate. Now, if permitted, we would say, Go meet your brother just half wav: On some such plan, perhaps we'll find A place to suit most all mankind; Except a few "rantankorous," Who always like to raise a fuss. To have a better moral tone, Let's live within the temperate zone. A score perchance, just here and there, Would lift their bauds aloft and swear, " We'll not submit," if you're so rigid, Then go your way to zone the frigid. Some say ''Pit lutrrid," those we'd tell, There's your road, you go to the torrid zone. Having banished all these chaps, We'd have a good old time, perhapn. When this is done, it will be seen, The people will be homogene; Our hands together, then we'd splice, In this good temp'rance paradise. We'd live together, oh, how true, Yes, both the Gentile aud the Jew. Search from Beersheba down to Dan, Perhaps you'll find no better plan, If this don't suit your every wish, We have Bt ill here another dish. We'll try to make it palatable, And suit your taste if we are able. Come, one aud all, let's stop this nonsense Aud each be governed by his conscience. Some folks at meais will have their meats, Others prefer some bread aud beets; One will discard both beef and mutton, For fear he might become a glutton ! John Ohiuaman just takes his rice, Commingled with both rats and mice, Thou smacks his lipsand says, "they're nice." If one prefers the Tanner diet, Why surely he's the right to try it; But where's the man that thinks it best To force the dish on all the rest ? Should one be found, the case is plain, The man must surely be insane. ' Let conscience, then, be each man's guide, We want no other law beside To regulate our daily food, But liberty to choose the good. Some one speaks up, aud says, "he thinks This will not do, applied to drinks." Why not t If one has reason be can see The force of this analogy. Freedom to act, freedom to think, Freedom to choose your meat and drink; Liberty to man and every beast, For liberty is a glorious feast. Before we finish up this question, We beg to make one more suggestion. The cure is not in making laws, But you must first remove the cause. A witness true, we now will call, It is the great Apostle Paul; A man whose views are of more worth Than all the men who tread the earth: When him you've heard, you then will see What is the baneful Upas tree, That spreads its branches far and near, Poisoning the moral atmosphere. "The love, of iiumy" is the root, Then whisky is but one offshoot. A brunch cut off with ax or sword, Will spring right up, like Jonah's gourd; The tree will grow aud thrive until Some way is found the root to kill; Whoever tries it, we'd implore, To place the plaster on the sore. Greut men and small, in various stations, Are subject to some sore temptations; But one stands out in bold relief, Of all temptations it is the chief : '7V thirat for gold, the wise men think, "lis worse by fur than thirst for drink. When the Demou Avarice gets control Of the nice machinery of the soul, Peu can't describe, no tongue can tell, Tho world can't show its parallel. It was the base Iscariot, Who, for a price, bis nunie did blot; He bartered off eternal bliss, Betrayed, hj Mautor with a kiss. WUftt Lrought tho sinless to the tomb, And draped the earth with midnight gloom W hat brought the cross, the groans, the pall The love of money eaitml it all. What caused the bleeding Lamb to cry, Eloi, Lama, Subachthani f What made those tears of anguish full ? ' Tican luce of money ca u d it all. We wish that all our moral teachers Including doctors, lawyers, jehers, Would find a plaul tuese upheavals, To keep muiiud from alf tit tviU. WLou whisky problems do arise, 1'liey till some folks with great surprisa; Just see the prohibition host, ' Pop up their heads ia Jtompju's ghusl. When on. ueuliun ltey are presaud, Jnt iew thew throw coat, bat and vest; Then, frtuu the ItiUe they retire, Like rata from an old barn on tire. They run with legs so very limber, Aud seek to find the tallest timber. But now we'll stop, uot'eause we're frighten' s But that the world may be eiiligh(ol. ' Oh I that kind Heaven wovdd iuierpose, Aud give great wi'.dui unto those That leie io solve the problems. rid tie world of tlttm hvbyvbli nt. Lebanon. Gazette. LEESBURG.
