Tli distinction tietween the thrw .ibove-iiaiiii-d artirliw, wliich exists only in the l';rree of ilieir stHfific grav ity, is clearly et forth in The llnrrr as follows : "Auioiisr the chief prcMhii ti of i-tro-leiiin, which enter largely into every day trade, anil alatut w hich very little is known, even by those who handle tliein. are napllia, ttpiiziiie and gasoline, all of which are the first results of the distil lation of M-t roll-inn. The application of the three names is oftentimes con fused, w hich may lie easily determined liy the simple use of an hydrometer. The first result of K-troleum distillation show a gravity of !H deg.. and the dis tillation from that down toSOdeg. gives w hat is known as gasoline, w hich is used almost exclusively in patent gas machines for the manufacture of hunt ing gas, a very fine lislit lieing obtained from its use. It is also employed as a carhonizer ot coal gas, and. w hen proji jierly applied at the meter, and with improved burners, it adds greatly to the richness of the flame. The gas compan ies use gasoline as an admixture to their product, in w hich case it becomes adul terant, liecause of the inierfeet means employed in its use. The distillation from about 74 deg. down to W deg. is termed lienzine. which is largely used by painters as a substitute for spirits of turpentine: the latter, being more oily, produces a much heavier paint, a better hnish ana ! ing much more durable, but benzine is a tiii k dryer, and Ix-ing cheap, is esjie- cially adapted to rapid and low-priced work. The scouring establishments also use very large quantities of this product, and it is deodorized and sold in small lHittles. under various names, for removing grease from clothing and similar purioes. When first taken from the still it is highly odorous, and that disagreeable leature is only re moved by re-distillation and treatment with sulphuric acid. The goods that are bottled and retailed in that way frequently have some fragrant perfume added to counteract the pungent odor, which cannot be entirely removed from thelienzine by any manner of treatment. Ilenzine is sometimes used for burning, but is exceedingly dangerous, ami should never lie employed for that pnr jHise. The heavier gravity product of the still, ranging from 11 deg. to (." deg.. is termed tiaptha. and is the lowest dis tillation unmixed with oil. which dis tills over at aliout I'rl deg. Xaptha is used in the manufacture of varnish, oil cloths, and patent leathers. It is aNo largely employed ill connection with India riibtier, of which it is the only jMTfect solvent. Iieing very superior to spirits of turM-ntine. We have show n in this brief space the proper gravity of these different products, anil persons w ho have occasion to use any of them an easily protect themselves against iniositioiis by applying the hydrometer test to w hich we have already alluded. The liner burning oils are made from distillation ranging from "1 deg. dow u to 4't deg. Most of the high test oils show a gravity of about 47 deg. to 4 deg., but this is too heavy for a very fine free-burning oil, and the finest product made lias a gravity test of iiu deg. and a fire test of l.'sj deg. Kali. This gives a perfect light, and may Ik used with absolute safety. The low priced kerosene oils, testing down as low as 110 deg. Fah., and under, and of 4J deg. to -IS deg., are lieing stiereded by the lietter grades: ami the good re sults are shown in the very rare reports of injury to life or limb from the use of an article which, because of its impurity and danger w as, a few years ago, gen eral I v condemned."' The Dutch Farmer in Africa. The Dutch farmer or boer of the in terior of the Cape 'olony may lie de scrilied in a few words, in every com munity there are bad exceptions; and the exceptions lieing all that we hear of at a distance, the fviiith African 1kt has till lately been regarded in England as little better than a savage. We must learn to know- his fairer side. The type is unchanging. Ashe was in lNi iu the colony, so tie is in 1S77 in the republics of the interior. He is uncul tivated. He is u n progressive; but lie Hssesses qualities w hich even here w ill lie regarded as not w ithout value. Ik is domestic, hut not gregarious. When he settles lie procures from 0,(HK) to 20. IHiO acres of undulating grass plain. He takes possession in his wago;i with his w ife and children, his scanty furniture, his family llible, which is all his litera ture, and his sheep ami cattle. He se lects a spring of w ater as a site for his house, ten miles, jierhaps from his nearest neighbor. His house consists of a central hall, w ith a kitchen behind it, and three, four, or live liedrooins oiening out of it, all on one floor. lie builds kraals for his cattle. He fences in a garden which he carefully irrigates. And so rapid is the grow th iii that soil and climate that in four or five years it will lie stocked with oranges, iemons, citrons, jieaches. apricots, tigs, apples, iears, aud grae-vines. He incloses fifty or a hundred acres, which he plow s and sow s w ith w heat or Indian corn. His herds and flocks iiiiiltij.lv w ith little effort. If he is ambitious he adds a few ostriches, w hose feathers he sells at Port Elizalietli. Thus he lives in a rude abundance. His boys grow up and marry; his daughters find lius baiids. and when the land is good they remain at his side. For each new fam ily a house is built a few gunshots from the first. A few more acres are brought under the plow. A second generation is born. The old jieople become the patriarchs of the family hamlet. The younger gather around them at the evening meal, which is preceded by a long, solemn grace, as the day's work in the morning is commenced w ith a psalm. The authority of age is absolute. The old lady sits in'a chair in the hall, extending her hand to a guest, but never rising to receive him. The young generation, trained to obedience fetch and carry at her command. The estate produces almost everything which the family consumes. There is no haste to get rich. There is no desire of change. The boer has few w ants but those which he can himself supply, and he asks nothing but to be let alone. The olied ience which he expects from his child ren he expects equally from his ser vants. He is a strict" Calvinist. The stream of time, which has carried most of us so fast and far, has left him anchored on the old ground. The only know ledge w hich he values is contained in the Bible. His notions of things in heaven and earth are very much what would have lieen found in Scotland iu the days of the covenant. He is consti tutionally republican, yet of liberty in the modern sense he has no idea. He considers work the first duty of man, and habits of work the only fitting edu cation. Native questions and all other questions he regards from this point of j view. Without tenderness, and without enthusiasm, and -with the narrowest in tellectual horizon, he has a stubborn practicality well suited for the work which he.has chosen as the pioneer of A f'ricaif civilization. 7"ifo fiejiublict. The Jeruaalen, Chamber. Westminster Abbey. The Jerusalem Chamber itself, thongh an unpretentious building alike in its external apjiearanee and its internal arrangement, is connected with two events in the history of - England, the one of which the great dramatist of Eng lish literature lias rendered famous for ever, the other of which has exerted an intlueuce ou all Kngli-h-speakiiig na tions such as is simply incalculable. ; Here it w as that llenry IV., coming up to Londou. covered w ith a hideous leprosy, and almost bent double with paiu and weakness, laid liiiu down to die. It was, apparently, the only room in the Abbey which had conveniences for a fire. It was the early spring; the Abbev itself was cliillv; and to the Jerusalem C hamber the King was car ried by his attendants, and there laid upon a iallet before the great tire-place. It is in a room in the palace of West minster adjoining that Sliakspeare places that most effecting scene, in w hich the Young J'riuce puts on his own hea. I the crown ot Ins sleeping father; and thence he represents the king w as carried at his ow n request to to the Jerusalem (.'handier lor Ins death. AW linn.

The other, and more important, though less dramatie scene, which renders this chamber memorable iu his tory is intimately conuected with the history of the church and the develop ment of theology. Here it was driven by the cold, as Henry IV. had been, from the Abbey itself, the famous con vocation of l'resbvterian clergy was held w iiich undertook to change the en tire character of the Established Church of England, but w hich, ending seem ingly in failure, really resulted in organizing a church w hose scojie and nriuence have outrun their wildest dreams.

Here, and m (he cliaiM-1 oi Ilenrv VII., changing their sessions iu part according to the weather, sat the mous W estinmster asscmblv. Out of these walls came the directory, the longer and shorter catechisms, and that famous confession of faith w hich is still the accepted symliol of theological doc trine of one ot the largest I'roiesant de nominations in England and the I'nited States. In this chamber sit the committee now engaged in the revision of the Uible. ibxrir't M'nizinr. Vila! Korce. Let us consider a few of the many ways iu which we waste the stuff that life is made of. It lias lieen well said that "the habit of looking on the bright side of things is w orth far more than a thousand pounds a year;" and certainly it is a habit that must add many years to the lives of those who ai-q'uire it. Really every tit id despondency and every rage takes so much out of us that any one who indulges in either w ith out a gaeat struggle to prevent himself doing so should lie characterized as little les than to use an American ex pression "a fearful fool." How silly it seems even to ourselves, after cooling, to have acquired a nervous headache and to have become generally done up, stamping round the room, and showing other signs of foolish anger, because the dinner was five minutes late, or lie cause some one's resjK'ct for us did not quite rise to the high standard measured by our egotism! As if it were not far more imortaiit that we should save our vital energy, and not get into a rage, than that tiie dinner should le served exactly to the moment. me day a menu oi ir.i raimerston asked In ni w hen he considered a man to lie in ine prune oi uie; ins mmieuiaie reply was "seventy-nine. Hut,'' he added with a playful smile, "as I have jiisi rim-mi m viiiiieiu irai, r ni.i I am mvself a little past it !" How is it that such men w ork on vigorous! v to the end? Because they treasure their ever-diinini-liiug vital force. They studiedly refrain from making a puil ou the constitution. Beaching the tMirders of seventy years of age, they as good as say to themselves: e must now take care what we are about." Of course, they make sacrifices, avoid a numlier of treacherous gaieties, and liTing siniplv, they iierhaps give some cause of offence, for the world does not approve of singularity. But let those laugh w ho in. 1 hey hold the censor Ions observation of critics in derision. and maintain the even tenor of their way. In other words, they conserve their vital force, and try to keep above ground as long as possible. Blustering natures, forgetful of the great truth that "power itself hath not one half the might of gentleness," miss the ends for w hich they strive just lie cause the force that is in them is not properly economized. Then as regards temper: any man who allows that to master him wastes as much energy as would enable him to remove the cause of angeror overcomean op)onent. The little I toy of eight years old w ho in the countrv is often seen driving a team of four immene drav horses, is one of the innumerable instances of the power of reason over mere brute force, which should induce violent tempers to become calm from jiolicy. if from no higher motive. Chttiiiltrr'' Jfiunwt. Activity not Always F-nerpy. There are some men whose failure to succeed in life is a problem to others, as well as to themselves. Thy are in dustrious, prudent and economical; yet after a long lifeof striving, old age finds them still poor. They complain of ill luck. They say fate is always against them. But the fact is that they mis- carrv. liecause they have mistaken mere activity for energy. Confounding two things essentia II v different, tbev have stipiioscd that, if thev werealw avs husv. they would be certain to be advancing their fortunes. They have forgotten that misdirected lalior is but a waste of activity. The person who would succeed is like a marksman firing at a target if his shots miss the mark they are a waste of pow der. So in the great game of life, w hat a man does. must be made to count, or it might almost as well have lieen left undone. Everybody know s some one in his circle of friends, who. though always active, has this want of energy. The disteniier, if we may call it Mich, exhibits itself in various ways. In some cases the man has merely an executive capacity when lie should have a directive one": in other language, he makes a capital clerk for himself, w hen he ought to do the thinking of the business. In other cases w hat is not done is not done either at the right time or in the right way. Energy, correctly understood, is ac tivity proportioned to the end. ' tijfc Amen'reii. Ilnnir- tleailty. A tasteful woman can make a garret beautiful aud homelike, and at little cost; for the beauty of home depends more on education and refined taste than upon mere wealth. If there is no artist iu the house it matters little that there is a large balance at the bank. There is usually no lietter excuse for a barren home than ignorance or carelessness. A little mechanical skill can make brackets and shelves for the walls. A thoughtful walk iu the woods can gather leaves and ferns for adorning the tinpictured rooms. A trifle saved from daily exjienses can now and then put a new book upon the table or shelf. The exjienditure of a few dollars can con vert the plain window into a laboratory. In these and fiftv other w ayscan a plain. barren room be converted into a scene of beautv. Afiucn.TrsAk Kzwtxo Bcttkb. In a recent num ber of the Country Gentleman Daisy Eye bright thus gives her experience in treating butter lor . long Keeping : "Wood or atone makes the Lest vessels for packing butter, but opinions differ as to which exceeds the otner. nite oak firkins, soaked for two days In sour milk, then washed out ana soaked one day in strong brice, and then , rubbed thoroughly with salt, are the best, ac cording to my mind. If E. R. will pack the butter lo such vessels, after be has worked out every drop of buttermilk, and salted by the following recipe, 1 can assure him that he cau keep his butter from June to Jnne as sweet as when first made: To every pound of batter add two heaping tablespoonruls of the finest dairy salt; the same amount of granulated white sugar, and a quar ter of a teaspoonful of saltpetre, pul verized very finely. These.ingredients can be mixed together, in this propor tion, in laree. wide-mouthed bottles. and kept for use. After the churn has done its work, add the mixture, and turn the cranK in reversed order for four or five minutes. The butter is thus salted without touching the fingers to it, and the housewife needs only to lift it out with a butter paddle and pack it tightly into a firkin, or else form it into tastefully stamped cakes all ready for the table. The sugar is quite as esseu tial for the preservation of butter as for the curing ot hams; and every one knows that sugar-cured hams are the finest in the market. The saltpetre can lie omitted if the butter is not desired for winter use." One of the most important secrets i n making butter for long keeping is iu getting the buttermilk all thoroughly worked out. In our dairy days it was our rule to add an ounce of salt to each pound of butter at the first working; after a thorough working to remove the buttermilk and Incorporate the salt, it was set away for five or six hours in a cool place, and then again worked. The addition of salt at the first working seemed to facilitate the extraction ot the buttermilk. The sugar and salt petre can be added at the second work ing; half ounce of sugar and half the amount of saltpetre named aliove was our rule. No salt added at the second working. The Best Fertilizer. The Illinois Industrial University at Champaign made an experiment with 13 different fertilizers on 20 plats of corn. I he highest yield was from Ibarn-manure, 50 loads on one acre yielded 93.50 bushels (of 70 lbs. dry per bushel.) The lowest yield was with potash and super phosphate of lime 70. Jl bushels of corn. The highest yield without fertilizer was 80.85 bushels, and the average ot all the plats was 79-11 bushels of corn. It was harrowed soon after the fertilizers were applied. J tine 10 it was cultivated, and again June 24, when it was thinned to two Malks to the bill. July 3d it was cultivated, and cultivated and laid by July 14th. This was all one way, north and south. October 2sth, 29th and 31st the crop was gathered and weighed allowing 80 pounds of ears to the busheL The land was never before manured, and had never been in grass, Had been in corn most of the time for 25 or 30 years. This corn, as stated, was gathered October 31st, and bo lbs, allowed for a bushel. At the time 80 lbs. were shoveled from the load and carefully preserved. Jiovember 20th it weighed 78 ibs. ; December 20th, 76 lbs. January 12th, 65 lbs. It then appeared dry, aud was shelled, and gave 03 lbs. corn and 12 lbs. cobs, showing that only 79 lbs. should have been taken tor a bushel. AxoTiiKR "tCARE-CEOw." in a re cent number of Forat and Stream J. X Davis gives the following as a certain plan to drive crows from from the corn field: "A very successful plan has been tried by placing in Mr. Crow'i way a number of grains with a horse hair run through them, lie is bound to swallow one, and his note of alarm is soon sounded. It is impossible lor j hini to dislodge the grain, and if he can ! be watched for a sufficient length of time ne wU he g,, to c,lt njg own throat ill u.rxrchin- at it. Ilia usual note is changed, and I can assure von life to niut is such a misery thai tie could 'even w ish that he were dead.' It has been noticed that after the note of alarm has been sounded all the crow s in the vicinity will leave that field and approach it no more that season. It is a simple thing, yet all who try it will find it a success." Tbotectiox Fkom Flies. A contem porary records the discovery of a French pbarmaceutal chemist who has di covered a way to protect horses from at tacks oi mes, according to a .London medical paper. His invention consists of rubbing the horses, especially the parts most subject to attack, with a lie Ite concentrated oil of laurel, there is not the slightest danger in its use, and the cost is said to be very small. Another repellent suggested by the same person is a solution of 60 grammes, lib and 5 ozs. avoirdupois)of assalu-tida in two glasses of w ater, aud one of vine gar. If horses be well washed with this not a fly will settle upon them, as the assaicetida drives the flies away. This drug has no deleterious quantities as an external application, and may be used unhesitatingly.

An American Diah. An amusing story is told, of which it is averred that no less a jiersonage than the late George I'eabody, the cel ebrated American banker, was the hero. It apjiears that Mr. IYahody had invited three Englishmen to meet two Americans at dinner, and on this occa sion, having received as a gift ten ears of corn, determined to renew the recol lections of his youth, astonish his Eng lish and please his American guests bv having it served up in the well-know n American style. Aci-ordingly at a pnqier time, plates of butter and salt were placed before each guest, and the banker, with some thing of an air of mystery, announced that he was now about to treat his guests to a well-known and deliciou American dish of food, cooked in the manner. It would be no novelty to his American guests, but the Englishmen must watch how it was disiosed of by them and follow their example aud manner in disposing of it. Then, at a signal, entered a stately butler bearing a large covered di-h, which he deposi ted solemniy before Mr. realxidy. In a moment more, in oliedience to the banker's nod, he whisked aff the cover, and there, before the astonished guests, was displayed often broiled corncobs! The banker gazed for an instant iu mutehorrorand dismay, andtheu found voice to demand an explanation, w hich was finally reached w hen the cook was summoned, a fellow w ho had never seen an ear of Indian corn in his life. He replied that he had followed his master's direction to "strip off the out side before boiling," which he had done most faithfully, not only husks, as was intended, but kernels also, so that the banker had only what is, in America, the mute evidence of the feast to indi cate what were his intentions to his guests. sciEmnc. - Sitrina Fever : Horn Not to Haw It In the Chrittiam Union, a writer gives the symptoms and several remedies for a very common complaint, prevalent with almost every one to a greater or less extent at tuia season oi ine year: The ham De red body, sari the writer. which baa been coddled, petted, stuffed with carbon-bearing fats, and caloritied in. every possible way,, begin to pro test.

More potent and palatable is the concentric force of the pure lemon acta. We venture to claim for this self treatment alone, faithfully applied more relief for the body aud stimulus to the mind than from a battery of puis or quarts ot herb decoction. A rir WeioJiini Instrument. The or dinary chemical balance is, of course, rather a costly instrument, it being difficult to make the two halves sunt ciently alike, and to combine stability with sensitiveness. M. Pager proposes the following arrangement for small weights. A two-armed tube is tilled with mercury, and on one of the mer cury surfaces is placed a well fitted nlate. w Inch can move in the tube with out friction. This serves as a balance scale, and the body to be weighed is placed on it. the liquid will rise in the other arm correspondingly, and equilibrium is at once obtained with a gieat certainty, i lace a known weight, 1 grain, for example, and note how high the mercury rises. Then place a second grain and note the additional rise. truing on in this way, a scale may easily be constructed. As for each rise in one arm there is an equal sinking in the other, this scale can be applied to the other leg also, of course in opposite direction. the sensitive ness of the arrangement is considera ble. It can be increased by the use of the Torricellian vacum, the plate, with the body to be weighed resting, in this ease, on the mercury in the open arm 1 he scale can here have no fixed zero, since the air pressure varies, which is only a slight iuconvenieuce.

The fol lowing treatment of hydrophobia is suggested in the Medical Journal, I he patient is to be undressed, seated on a cane chair, and the whole body up to the neck enveloped in blankets. Under the chair a spirit lamp is placed. This lamp is protected in a cage, on the top of which is a receptacle for the calomel (.twenty or thirty grains), aud a saucer for water. The flame beneath boils the water, and volatilizes the calomel. Moderate salivation, which is all that is required, savs the writer, mav be in duced in a Quarter of an hour, and judiciously repeated if the svmntoms seem nenehled by the treatment, 1 his treatment is said to have been success ful in a case of hydrophobia in India during 157. Westminster Abbey. In 1M0, during the leisure of my Embassy, I experienced a striking proof f the extent and charm of Macaulay's knowledge, lie ollered to act as a icerone in a visit to Westminster Abliev. During three or four hours I wandered with him through that monu mental gallery of England and her familiies. I stopped him, or he stopped me, at every step, at one time in reply o my questions, at another anticipating them; then he explained an allegorical monument, reminded me of a long-forgotten fact, related an anecdote little known, or recited some beautiful pass- je from the writers or orators w hose names we encountered. We paused be fore the statue of Lord Chatham, stand ing with his head elevated and his arm advanced as if enforcing a burst of elo- liience; before him at his feet was uscrPied on a simple stone the name of his son, William Pitt. "Might not one iy," observed Macaulay. "that the father rises and there publicly delivers he funeral oration of his son;" and at this thought some of the most beautiful ieeches of Lord Chatham thronged on memory, from which he quoted select passages. The monuments of the great writers, whether in prose or verse, ailed forth the same abundant display. the same inspiration of memory. Mil ton' aud Addison were favorites with him, and he detained me several min utes before their names, gratifying him- elf by recalling incidents of their lives or passages from their works almost as much as he excited my delight in listen ing to him. The entire visit filled me with delight and interest. As the illustrious dead of Italy issued from their tombs on the passing of Dante, so did the great celebrities of English his tory and literature rise up before me at the voice of a worthy representative. Guizot ot the Court of St. Jam. 0Trmc ; Washuso-DaT ni GkrjiasT. Washing-day in many parts of Germany (where It Is the pride of every house wife to have a large stock of linen) comes only two or three times a year. It is thus described by a correspondent of the New York Etenina Pott, writing from ilelsungen: - - When ' 'washing-day" does I come around it Is a very great occasion. . Half a dozen women are called In to assist. and immediately after their arrival vanish into the cellar. Here they pass the first day wrapt i n a cloud or my s tery and steam through which I have never sought to penetrate from which they emerge at evening with great baskets piled high with wet, clean linen, ready to be taken to the bleaching field. This field is about a half a mile from most of the houses and is the property of the town. It Is a point of low meadow land which extends out into the river. At one side is a little stone hut in which man and dog pass the night guarding the clothes. In the centre of the field is a stone-curbed well. Hither in the evening the clothes are brought on trucks, frequently drawn by large dogs, and here, Iu the cool or the day, they are spread upon the grass, sprinkled from large tin watering pots, and left for the dews to finish the work which the soap-suds have begun. The next day the sheets and table-cloths and large pieces are put through a process of shaking and turning, sprinkling and spreading, which to the sceptical mind, appears rather unnecessary while the smaller ones are hung on the lines to dry. Of a bright sunny morning, the bleaching field, in which from two to half a dozen different parties usually are at work, is a very pretty picture. The peasant girls, with eld handker chiefs or veils tied over their heads, gay stuff dresses and bare leet, run about between the long rows of snowy linen, or stand on tiptoe at the lines with their hands and mouths full of clothes-pins, struggling with a reirac- tory skirt. Others stand awaiting their turns at the well with watering pots on their heads, or at the tubs up to their elbows in the rinsing water; one re freshes herself with a long drink of water from an uplilted jug; a group of women sit in the shadow of the stone hut eating their breakfast of black bread and sausage, while the children make themselves useful by chasing stray pieces which the wind whisks away, or ornamentally turning somer saults and playing leap frog. Every thing is stirring and fresh and pretty to see. The clothes flap and tug at the lines if the wind is brisk, fleecy white clouds sail over the blue sky, now cast ing a grateful shadow upon the work ers, now letting the suu-ngnt pour down and glorify everything. The broad, lovely landscape, the hills and the river glow and sparkle in rich lighted shadows, the fresh, sweet air comes over the meadows from the bills. the whole world seems beautiful and glad, and one accepts all these thousand suggestions that German country life is very charming. Recooki.no Cold Meat. Take any kind of cold meat, cut it into dice, tak ing care to tu; n off all gristle; place in a stew pan, with sufficient cold water to cover it, and one or two onions, ac cording to the quantity of meat; season with cloves, pepper, salt and mace, ac cording to taste; simmer gently until the meat Is quite tender; thicken it with flour and a small piece of butter; take an iron spoon, put a teaspooutul of sugar in it, and burn the sugar; 6tir quickly into the hash. Toast slices of bread brown; cut iu squares, and lay them round a flat dish; then pour out your hash and serve hot. If veal or poultry is used, omit the clove and browning, and add fresh parsley, chopped tine, just before sending to the table. Strawberry Ice. Into two pounds of ripe strawberries, mashed through a hair sieve with a wooden spoon, mix ore-half pound of powdered sugar; beat the yolks of twelve eggs very light and add one pint and a half of rich milk; stir over the fire until it begins to thicken, when pass through a tammy ; when cold, add to it the strawberries and three glasses of maraschino; freeze the same as any other ice; wnen partially, frozen add a pint of whipped cream; you may color it witn a very little cocluueal if you wish it a little darker. Cold in the Head. This can be cured at once, If taken care of at the very beginning. Dissolve a tablespoon lul of borax in a pint of hot water; let it stand until it becomes tepid ; snuff some up the nostrils two cr three times during the day, or use the dry powdered borax like snuff, taking a piuch as often as required. At night have a handker chief saturated with spirits of camphor, place it near the nostrils, so as to inhale the fames while sleeping. Wall Paper. Never paper a wall over old paper and paste. Always scrape down thoroughly. Old paper can be got off by damping with salera tus and water. Then go over all the cracks in the wall with plaster of Paris and finally put on a wash of weak solu tion of carbolic acid. 1 he best paste is made out of rye flour with two ounces of glue dissolved in each quart of paste; half an ounce of powdered borax im proves the mixture.

Many begin well, but after a time get off the course; then their life is more likely to grow wrong than right. The following in- ident has its moral for all who are aiming to do right : During a beautiful summer's night on one of our great lake, the master of a boat thought he might take a few hours' rest, and intrusted the rudder to the hands of his boy, a somewhat simple minded lad. "Io you .ee that star straight before us?" he said to him. pointing tu the l'olar star. Yes." Well, vou have nothing to do but to keep the boat straight in that direc tion." "I understand." The captain fell asleep. The liy did le same. J he wind changed ; the boat turned out of its course more and more. II at last it had made a seini-cirele. be bov awoke; he was astonished to see behind his buck the star which had list now been straight before him, but he did not the less continue with a Arm hand to steer the boat towards the south, from whence it had first come. Two hours after the master in his turn awoke He cast one glance upon the sky and another upon the boy. "n ell, stupid . what are you doinff?" "I am still keeping always straight be fore me, as you told me."' AD, indeed : and the Tolar star?" Oh, the Polar star, why we Dassed that long ago!" - Adaoes. Chrl, was a He would have been an angel to-day hut for the deceit of this false-hearted world. He wasn't one of a set of triplets, and therefore didn't have honors showered upon hiro In bis ear! v days: but old women said there Lwas foundation there for an orator, a great general, or a philosopher, and okl men examined nts neaa sua aiu it level. Nothing particular happened to Christopher Columbus until the eigntn vear of his reirn. His childhood days were full of mud pies, the butt end of shingles, paregoric, castor oil, and old straw hats with the front brim worn off. He was a deep thinker and a close observer, for a small boy. and ne was just innocent enough to believe things which other boys pttcn out oi ine w in dow without a second thought. When Christophher was going on nine years old he beard some one say that a "Penny saved was two pence earned." He therefore laid a Dig eung- town away in a crack under the mop board, and every day he looked to see it grow to two cents. He had confidence and patience; but at length both gave way. Then he got the cent out one day, and Mrs. Norton's baby swallowed it. and that was the last of that Bungtown The youthful Christopher didn't be lieve in maxims quite as much as belore, but he had not cut all bis ere-leetn yet. When this boy was a year older he heard it said that "Truth was mighty, and must prevail," and that a boy who always told the truth would surely make a great man. He commenced to tell the truth. One day he got his father's razor out and hacked it on stone; and when the old gent came home he asked 'who in blazes done that?" Christopher Columbus looked up and said. "It was I, father I notched your old razor." "You did. eh?" sneered the old man, as he looked up into the peach-tree, "well. I 11 fix you so you won't never notch another razor for me . And he cut a Duddiug limb, aud dressed that boy down until the youth saw stars. That night Christopher Columbus determined never to tell the truth again, unless by ac cident, and all through life he stuck to the resolution. When the lad was about twelve vears old he read in a book that "Honesty was the best policy." He didn't half believe it, but he thought he'd try. He went to being honest. One day his mother sent him to the grocery to buy eggs, and Bill Jones induced hun to squander the "change in the purchase of soda-water. When he got home his mother asked for the little balance, and Christopher explained. "Siient it for soda, eh?" she replied; "here your poor old mother is working like a slave, and you around swilling down soda- water:' I don't think you will swill any more, I don t! Come over my right knee." And she agitated him in the liveliest manner. That night as he turned in his downy straw bed the boy made up his mind that honesty duln t pay, and he resolved to cheat the whole world If he could. hen Christopher was a half-year older he came across the injunction : "Be kind to the poor." lie did not know whether it would pay or not! but be set about it. He knew of a poor woman who sadly needed a spring bonnet, and he took over h i mother s, along with a few other things, including his father's second pair of boots, his own Sunday shoes, and so on. He went around feeling very big hearted until the old gent wanted to go to the lodge one night. and then it came out. "Gi'n away my boots, eh?" inquired his father; "lugged your mother's best bonnet off. eh? Well, I don't think you'll remem ber the poor very much after to-night?" And he pounded Christopher Columbus with the pump-handle, and even then didn't feel as if he had made a thorough job of It. They fooled this boy once more. He heard a rich man say that everybody should "Make hay w hile the sun shone." so when there came a sunny day the boy went out, took his father's scythe t.own from the plum tree, and went to make hay. He broke the scythe, cut down the tulips, and hacked his sister in the heel, and his mother came out and led him around by the hair and bounced him till he went into a decline. They couldn't bamboozle this boy atter that. He grew more wicked every day of his life, and before his eighteenth birthday arrived lie was hung. Somebody writes to a rural paper to ask "how long cows should be milked." Why, the same as a short cow, of course! A cruel and benighted wag asks what Eve's first dress was composed of, and then recklessly answers a bear skin. What does the letter B do for boys as they advance in years. As they grow older it makes them bolder. A man with water on the brain should wear a p!ur hat. A peel of the sole. Orange jieel on tne siue warn. The war naturally begin in a row mania.
