monsters as lurgfl ns beetles, and having
tho nppenmnce! of crabs. Four dreadful
legM, with claw-pincers at the ends of thorn,
jointed in four parts as with armor, and
liriMling with sharp-pointed spears, are
in iront of the monster, and his hood has
n long pyramidal form in two joints, with
live finger tips at the terminus whore tho

Tho reverse side shows the ugliness of
tho beast even more than the obverse: but
it also shows tho wondrous mechanical

A Novel Gun Carriage.
Tlmro U a comical Story connected With
the Ordnance Select Coramittco. It was at
onetime proposed to firemountnin-guiuf off
the backs of initios 4hat carried them It
was urged that this Would obviate the' ne
cessity of dismounting the gun from tho
mule's back aud mounting it on its car
ringo ; a mountain battery could thus romo
into action In far less time. This proposal
was warmly taken up by tho coromittoo,
who forthwith" Jlo,'edixl to test ita fmsi.
A mule or donkey was procured,
aud a small gun strapped firmly to a cradle
resting on the pnek saddle, so that tho
weapon p'oin tod over tho donkey's tall.
The animal was(thunlvd into tho marshes at
Woolwich, accomjmnied by the committee
aud several 'bigwigs." who were attracted
by such a novel experiment.' On. arriving
at tho butt the gun was loaded, the'lBkey
turned with his tall towards tho earthen
mound, and tho usual preparations mode
for firing by means of a lanyard and fric
tion tube. Hereupon one of tho committee
remarked that this mode of firing might
derange the aim by the jerk on pulling
tlio lanyard. A discussion followed, and
it was fiuully arranged to fire the gun by
the piece of slow match tied to the vent.
This was done, and the match duly ignited.
Hitherto the donkey had tuken rather a
sleepy interest in the proceedings ; but the
fizzing of tlie match on his back caused him
first to prick up his ears, then to lay them
back, and finally to liegln to turn round.
The committee wero thunder-struck, and
"skedaddled" in all directions ; the secre
tary threw himself flat on his face; there
was an agonizing moment of suspense;
then bang the shot went ricochet ting
away in one direction, while the wretched
donkey turned a complete summers- nit in
the other.
Success in Life.
The great secret of success in life consists
in bending all your efforts to whatever you
happen to engage In. Don't let your fickle
ness lead you to slight your present occu
pation, and think light ly of it, hoping some
thing better will turn up by-and-hy. The
way to get along in the world is to make
every Btep one that is ahead, and each to
follow Its predecessor. For full fifty per
cent, of the effort of the world Is absolutely
wasted in indirect, diffuse, indttlfiulte la
bors. Voting men start on in life without
purpose or point, ca'tlng a thought neither
on their fitness nor unfitness for a particu
lar culling; now doing this thing, then
that, add after that nothing; oneduy going
on, another on the right (which 1s wrong)
or left, the next backward, and then not
going on at all, which is jierhaps as bad as
the whole combined.' The right line in lifo
is the one which leads straight ahead.
This almost always secures success. If
you are creeping, do it energetically until
you can get on your foot to walk ; but
never try to do both at once. And when
once on your feet, never get on your hands
and knees again ; but strain all your efforts
to your new life.
How to Choose a Wife.
Wo venture to give the following recipe
for the (election of a wifn :
"A lace for everything aud everything
in its placo," snid an old man to his daugh
ter. "Select not a wife, my son, wlw will
ever step over a broomstick."
The son was obedient to tho lesson.
"Now," said ho, pleasantly, on a May day
to one of his companions, "I appoint tills
broomstick to choose mo a wife. Tho
young lady who will not stop over it phall
have tho offer of my hand."
They passed from the splendid saloon to
the grove. Some tumbled over the broom
stick, others jumped over it. At length
a young lady stooped and put it In its
place. The promlso was fulfilled. She
became tho wifo of an educated and wealthy
young man, and ho tho husband of a pru
dent, Industrious, and lovely wifo. He
brought a fortune to her, and she know
how to eavo ono. It is not easy to decide
which wan under tho greatest obligations,
both woro rich, and each enriched tho other.
Luxuries and Necessities.
The refinements of increasing civiliza
tion transform what were once deemed
luxuries Into necessities. People who
have not passed the meridian of lifo can
see marked contrasts iu the style of living
in their own short lives ; and how mucU
greater the contrasts when the lapse of
time extends overtwoor three generations I
Carpets and chimneys belong now to every

no chance of escape. The potatoe eamo

like a chunk of Parian marble, and yonr

Chilblains and Chapped Hands.
When chilblains manifest themselves,
tho best remedy not only for preventing
them ulcerating, but overcoming the ting
ling, itching pain, and stimulating the
circulation of the part to healthy actioa
is tho liniment of belladonna, two drachms,
the liniment of aconite one drachm, car
bolic acid, ten drops, to collodion flexile,
ono ounce, painted with a camel's hair
pencil over their surface. When the chil
blains vesicate, ulcerate, or slough, it is
better to omit the aconite, and apply the
other components of the liniment without
it. The collodion flexile forms a coating
or protecting film, which excludes the air,
whilst the sedative liniments allay the irri
tation, generally of no trivial nature. For
chapped hands we advise the free use of
glycerine snd good olive oil in the propor
tion of two parts of the former to four of
tho lntter ; after this has been well rubbed
Into the. hands and allowed to remain for
S little time, and the hands subsequently
washed with Castile soap and tepid water,
we recommend the belladonna and collo
dion flexile to be painted, and the protec
tive film allowed to permanently remain.
Theso complaints not unfrequently invade
persons of languid circulation and relaxed
habit, who should be put on generous
regimen and treatedwith ferruginous tonics.
Obstinate cases are occasionally met with,
which no local application will remedy,
until some disordered state of the system
is removed, or tho general condition of the
patient's health Improved. Chapped lips
aro also benefited by the stimulating form
of application w advocate, but the aconite

Maxims for Young Girls.
Kcver make your appearance In the
morning without first having dressed your
self neatly and completely. Keep your
clothing, especially undei-clothlng, In per
fect order. Never let pins do duty as but
tons, or strings take the place of proper
bands. Train yourself to useful occupa
tions. Remember, it is wicked to -waste
time, and nothing gives such an impression
of vanity and absolute silliness, ss never
having anything to do. If you are in your
father's house, take some department of
household labor npon yonrself, and a part
of needlework, and make it your business
to attend to it. Do not let a call from this
idle girl, or a vis t from that, or an Invita
tion from the other, Interfere with the per
formance of your duty. Let yonr pleasure
come in as recreations, not ai the business
of your life. If you want to marry, do not
court or try to attract the attention of gen
tlemen. It is better to be a woman than a
wife, and do not degrade your sex by mak
ing your wbols existence turn on the jjlret
of matrimony.
Keep the Mouth Shut.
This is very Important, both for happi
ness and health. By keeping it shut more
than it is, fewer disagreeable things will
be said, which will make ns lees unhappy.
As regards health, it is also important.
-People should cultivate the habit of breath
ing through tho nose more than they da
Man's nostrils were not Intended for the
sole purpose of distinguishing odors, good
from bad, but were put in hia head to filter
and purify the air he breathes before it
enters his lungs, snd to soften and warm it
when chilled, damp, and unhealthy from
Ibe influence of a variable climate. He
who breathes through his mouth will at
ways find himself more or less In trouble
with pulmonary or bronchial difficulties.
It Is the most hurtful thing in the world
to go from a warm room, in winter or Sn
tumn evenings, and draw the damp and
chilly out door atmosphere directly Into the
lungs through the mouth. It has, time
and time again, resulted in sovere attacks
of illness, and not unfrequently death.
Lying in Bed.
It is often a question among people who
are unacquafu'fed -With tho anatomy ' and
physiology of men, whether lying with head
exalted or on a level with the body, Is the
most unwholesome, ftfost, consulting their
own case on this point, argue in favor of
that which they prefer.- Now, although
many delight is bolstering up tlielr heads
at night, and sleep soundly wltltoot injury,
yet we declare it to be a dangerous habit.
The vessels in which the blood passes from
the heart to the head are always lessened
in their cavities when the head la resting
in bed higher than the body; therefore
in all diseases attended with fever, the
head should bo pretty nearly on a level
with the body ; and people ought to accus
tom themselves to sleep thus, and avoid
danger. , .-.J-r
Home Education.
We should riot hesitate to attribute'
greater Importance to home education than;

It is not at all1 sttrr-rfsiog that
one remedy should remove the
one cause of all these different
diseases, and thereby cure them.
Cat whether surprising at not,
Dr. Radway has proven it to
be an indisputable fact. His
Ready Relief is just the reme
dy for the diseases above enu
merated and many others, and
it effects a cure In an incredibly
short time. In diseases arising
from a corruption of the tlta!
fluids, such as syphilis, scrofula,
running sores, leucorrhoea, etc.,
Dr. Radway's Sarsapanllian
Resolvent is by the medical
faculty even universally ac
knowledged even as the most
effective remedy, and highly
valued by them as such.. Dis
eases of the above class, are in
many cases hereditary and most
difficult to treat. Tbey require
a most powerful blood-purifier
like the Sarsaparillian Resolv
ent to prevent the spreading of
the virus and save , the patient
from a premature grave. The
third large class of diseases
arising from a disordered state
of the digestive organs, is easi
ly and unfailingly cured by
Dr. Radway's Regulating 1'ilK
These Pills being vegetable,
are safe and harmless, and yet
act more powerfully than prep
arations of mercury, which
shatter the whole system. All
of Dr. Radway's celebrated
remedies arc for sale at all

The distress and suffering in
Paris is immense. In that vast
metropolis there must always
bo hundreds of thousands of
people who have as much as
they can do to keep the wolf of
poverty away jrom their doors.
Now, when there has been a
reign of terror for weeks
when the non-residents who
have spent millions of dollars
have left wnen the stores and
shops have been largely closed
to assure their 6afety when
the great factories have ceased
their work what remains for
the industrial classes to do but
to either beg or starve ? Such
a state of things even in this
country would be intolerable,
but how much more oppressive
in old and thickly-settled Paris.
A large portion of the people
must be fed directly from the
public treasury, and how long
can this continue ? Very brief

order of things will be terrible.

A recent decision of the Su
preme Court of the United
States establishes a very curi
ous coincidence. Two years
ago Governor Palmer, of Illi
nois, refused to pay tax on the
income he received from the
State as the salary for his office.
His reason, as expressed in a
letter to the United States col
lector, was that the Federal
(jovernment had no right to
tax the States on the means
employed to carry on their
governments, and the office of
Governor and the salary paid
was one of those means, Tho
case was reported to the au
thorities at Washington by the
collector, and the enforcement
was ordered to bo suspended.
The decision referred to cornea ,
up from the State of Massa
chusetts, and the Supreme
Uourt uses, word tor word, in
the decision, the language em
ployed by Governor l'almcr in
his letter to the Collector of
internal revenue iu Illinois.
