After examining it with great care and deliberation, he prepares it for smoking. lie is never known to bite the end off; he cuts it off with one arti.ular hlade of his knife. Then he holds the end in his fingers for asecond, deliberating where to throw it. Finally, he selects a spot on the ground off to his right and tosses it there, not at random, but carefully, and with the intent of making it drop just where it does. Then he finds a match. and lights it. lie (holds it in his hand until every possible trace of sulphur is burned away-and his match was never known to blow out, not even if the wind was blowing a gale -then hie puts the cigar into his mouth, turns it over once or twice until it set , ties into exactly the right position, and then lie lights it. Then he holds the mnatehi in his hand until it burns clear up to his finger-nails, when he tosses it away, in a direction opposite the dis. carded eigar end, and then he smokes. Slowly; with chair tip-tilted back against the tavern, one leg thrown over the other, and his calm, judicial eyes fixed on the universe at any indefinite point in his immediate front. If there is a dog light down the street, or a hur ricane up the street, that drags all the other Villagers away as eager and ex cited spectators, it never moves the 'Squire. Calm as a sphinx he holds his place, and smokes. And he gets twenty cents' worth out of every five-cent cigar he lights.' "-BIlurdef/te, in the 11Taw hkeye. A.Rare Bird. In a little compartment of the ostrich house at the Zoological Garden resides that quaintest and mostuncanny of birds, the apteryx, or kiwi-kiwi, which was lons thought by naturalists to be a mythicva creature. It never comes out at all but at night, and even then, on this oc casion, he had perceived our ap proach, and taken up his usual place of concealment'amon_ the straw. It is a round little nondescript with a long curved beak, no tail, the merest rudi ments of wings, which are not visible through the plumaniae, and largo power fld feet, with whicTi it kicks in a very formidable manner, while it can, by striking them on the ground, make a tremendous nose quite disproportionate to its size. It lives chiefly on worms, and,having its nostrils set at the very tip of the beak, can pry them out in its noe turnal rambles without the aid of eyes. Having discovered the whereabouts of a worm it is said to entice them to the sur face by stamping on the ground; we can not vouch fdr this as a fact, and must confess that, if we were a worm, we should be anything but allured by such a burglarious clatter overhead. The most curious circumstance perhaps about the apteryx is. its egg, which is nearly as large as the parent bird, and is one-fourth of its weight. Several have been laid in the gardens of the society, thus setting at rest all doubt upon the subject. It is a native of New Zealand, where it is now becoming very rare, and is closely allied to the Moa, or Dinoris, which is now extinct, but which, if we are to believe native accounts, ex isted within the last hundred years. The skeleton, of the last-named extraordi. nary bird is by this time familiar to the frequenter of umuseums of comparative anatomy, and from its gigantic propor tions recalls the fabled Roe of the Arab ian Nighta.-London Saturday Review.

When an individual is reported to have died of disease of the heart, we are in the habit of regardiun it as a Inevitable event, as something which' could not have been foreseen or pro-. vented, and it is too much the habit, when persons suddenly fall down dead, to report the heart as the cause; this silences all inquiry and ilitest eation, and saves the trouble and inconveo , ience of post mortem. A truer report a. would have a tendency to save many, lives. It is through a report of disea.. of the heart that nibny an opium eateri is let off into the grave, which covte, s at once his folly and his crime:th. nI brandy drinker, too, quietly sli es, around the corner thus, and is he.ad of no more; in short, this report of die A ease of the heart is-the mantle of chat4 'dl ity which the politic coroner and symp.-a thetic physician throw aroua.,tlh p graves o generous people. At a scientific congress at StNb4'ab" 'x it was reported that of sixtyssi pppi-" eons who had sudd!nly djed, an, ilu' k,!o diate and faithful ,post rnort'e' showe( that only two persons had ayn- head a'. fectationi whiatever--cne suddele lh ,Ie only in thirty-three, from. diseases ot fU the heart. Nine out of sixty die of ap- , optexy-one out of every seven; whit., ie -orty-six--more than two out of three i, -died of lung atfection. half of 'them: congestion of the lungs, that is, the lungs were so full of blood they ~iculd not work; there was not rootn. for asi . enough to get in to support life. It i r then of considerable practical int~res to know some' of the common every, " day causes of this congestiont"of the :t'' lung, a disease which, the figures above being true, kills three time, ast ma,. persons at short warniug as apoplexy ,'i and heart disease together. Cold feet, tight shoes, light clothtng, ebstive., bowels, sitting still until chillea 't through after having been warmed lip by labor or a- long, Iasty walk; goina . too suddenly from a close heated room, as a lounger or listener, or speaker, " while the body is weakened -by eon- 0 tinued application, or abstinence, Ort', heated by a long address; these-are the:.'
