Just inside the door of every e-tubii.-hm'-jit .sirs a vessel (A more or less capacity, fast atir hord by a i chain, a cord, a rope or a leather thonr. j The swell shops have showy bowls ol ! china, glass or decorated metal, with j handsome chains, and thence the article : runs down the scale to the makeshift con- ! trivance of the poor for the same purpose, j The other extreme may be seen in the wooden rorhly diiL? out tray, the pipkin of coarse brown earthenware, which mnv be bought f'r a cent, or th exempt eoal ; oil can cut down to a. suitable height, which stand in the doorways of petty sliop. or across the tcrimy threshold of the dark ; dens of the chareoal sellers.

Not long ago Mexico was visited by a gentleman of, I may say, a national repu- j tation, who adds to Ids journalistic and j political achievements an enthusiastic and j practical crusade in the ranks of the j society for the Prevention of Trin ity to ! Animals, lie was much pleased with j Mexico, save in one respect: lie felt moved to Inveigh bitterly against the inhumanity j of the race. Among other allusions he expressed a bit of disapproval of bull fights. Now, a hull li,dit is a sport that in my heart of hearts I dote upon; there fore was I moved to a swiff defense, and among other points I add need that, of this J merciful provision for vagrant dogs, which ! the enthusiast was fain to admit went far ( to offset the practice of loading on mules bunches of chickens tied together bv the j feet, heads down. to him who will but wait," and one day when '"those other two legged bea ts of burden," the peons, shall be emancipated in the spirit as in the letter, the lower order of animals will come to receive more consideration.

Tlie Newes Wiener Tagblatt informs us that the Prince of Wales is regarded on the continent as having a singular lueky hand at games of chance. ''The day be fore the earthquake he appeared in Monaco, and tried his luck in jest vA trente et quarante. His success was so satisfactory that the prince resolved to venture at roulette the sum which he had won at the other game. Here again luck followed him like a dutiful servant, and in a very short space of time he left the salon with a gain of 000 sterling.'' The incident, reminds the Vienna journal of the equally fortunate play of the prince a year ago, when he was the guest of Count Tafllo Fastetics at Uuda-I'esth. -In one single night the future ruler of England won nearly a quarter of a million gulden in a well known aristocratic club. The prince told his fellow players that he would give them an opportunity for re venge as soon as he returned from his hunting tour. Fourteen days later he appeared at the club, according to his pro mise. The 'revenge,' however cost his opponents 8,000 florins!'' It appears from the same journal that the heir to the Austro-IIungarian throne, the Crown Prince Rudolph, is not quiet so prodigal ! and reckless in gaming as the Hungarian j nobles. He will only play fur wry small j states, like the aged (erman emperor, who thinks that a sum of fifty pfennig is as much as a kiim or prince should ven ture at a time. Pull Mall Gazette. FOK 11KNT, LEASE- SALL Have Had Their Day. Those who have watched the rise, prog ress and decline of the height and depth most of all the depth of the absurdity of fashion or blank idiocy in the matter of pug dogs may now whisper pence to their souls and rejoice that the worst is over. To be sure, the sweet doggies yet loll in their mistress' laps, thrust their impudent and ugly mugs out of carriage windows ami luxuriate in cushions, sweet ribbons, perfumed baths, doting caresses and kisses and dainty food. They still wear em broidered harness, the most stunning feature of which is the handle by which they may be carried over puddles and es cape wetting their paws, or escape being devoured by larger, intelligent dogs, or escape fitting death from being scratched into eternity by cats. They still wear little blankets to protect them from pneu monia, and charming feminine ingenuity, which ought to devote its cunning in adorning robes for future presidents and policemen, exhausts itself in the details of their neckwear. Hut, though lui man or feminine reason and affection seem to have tied to brutes, there is evidence that the worst is over. The decree is that young women shall no longer carry doggies wear them, so to fpeak. Worcester Telegram. 7 1IIK WAIKIKI lit '-'IDF.N'CE OF MR.

A hawk can spy a lark upon a piece of earth almost exactly the same color at tweuty times the distance it is perceptible to a man or dog; a kite soaring out of hu man sight can still distinguish and pounce upon lizards and field mice on the ground: and the distance tit which vultures and eagles can spy out their prey is almost incredible. Recent discoveries, and es pecially Darwin's observations, have inclined naturalists to the belief that birds of prey have not the acute sense of smell with which they were once accredited. Their acute sight seems bet ter to account for their actions, and they appear to be guided by sight alone, as they never snid at anything, but dart straight at the object of their desire. Their counterparts in the ocean, however, undoubtedly see and smell equally well, but are more guided by smell than sight. In both sharks and rays the eyes are good, and have a most distinct expression; though since they scent their prey from a distance, and swim up to it with great rapidity, 'smell," as Lacepede says, "may be called their real eye."'

Containing only the normal percentage of alcoholic strength in dry wines 10A per cent., and only (.ol of Saccharine, and no fictitious tlavorings.1' As a stimulant the ECLIPSE bears the hiuhest recommendation of the leading faculty of the United States, and wherever exhibited for competition with any other Champagnes, either j T mi,oFn o i w Y K J noo I fx P i,A,Avn foreign or native, its merits are attested by the highest awards.
