Bill Nye Goe» Bxïk to K.rly Youth and Tt*IU Talen. Much loss and annoyance might be avoided in this world by reasonable care in securing our property in such a way that it w mid be perfectly safe,and, while so*» precautions do not cost much, I ski neglect may be productive to us of serious loss. How often arc wo led to regret the oversight of some trilling duty ia this direction, the per formance of which would have saved o^many and bitter regrets. Mï.ny years ago, w hen I was a stu dent in the law office of Bingham & Jen. there were two of us, young law < u i) S> who not only labored in the oilier lays, but camped in a back room adjoin> Q g during the night This room was «it. 0 f ii> > suite to which the offices bolo igeu. we had to do up our bed lounge daygmes, and put our hlaukets, etc., in so -ig place where the)' would be o it of ti.-- \\ay.

It was about the coldest night of that extremely cold winter in a very cold state. I took the lamp and began oil the combination. 1 got to thirty six ou the second turn, and carelessly allowed the knob to move a little too far. Then I went back to the place of beginning and reversed the thing back and forth till 1 got to where the lock is supposed to click and the door swing open, but it did not do so. A wild feel ing of doubt and uncertainty came over me, and my lingers got stiff with the great wealth of cold that now pervaded the apartments. 1 went through it again, slowly and carefully, warming my hands every now and then in my capacious mouiii olool* in I hi» «ifmqt!ii put on my overcoat, kic ,.*oor with all my remain and went to the Central clerk woke up and told me that as it was Christmas-time the house was plumb full, and 1 could not be accom modated. 1 went to the Waltmau house, and they told me tiie "Yule-tide yarn" there, and ejected me from the place. Il was then 1 o'clock G. M. I went back to the olliee, lit the gas, and began again on the combination. 1 knew that there were only three or four in.llion permutations and combinations of numbers, und so 1 thought 1 would 1 did this till the u!r thowB.il ing strength, hotel.

Kuterprisc. 1'his sei tied on. Views of an lOnirlish Architect. In a recent lecture on "Healthy Dec oration in the Home," Mr. <1. Atchi son, an English architect, said among other things: Nothing is better for preventing the permanent location of dirt than really good hard wood polish ed parquet; but it that he found too ex pensive, then let the joints of the board be well scraped out, filleted with wood when wide, and let all the joints bo puttied. And let the whole tloor be painted or varnished; dust is then more easily and completely swept up, and a wet ilauncl cleans the tloor; but with parquet perhaps a washing once a year is enough with clean sweeping, and the wholesome application of turpentine and beeswax. Next to polished wood, tiles, marble, glass, and marble mosaic, the best wall finish is oil paint, which can be made agreeable to the eye by simple Hat tints of harmonious color, or it can be ornamented with floral or arabesque ornament, or with the highest triumphs of the painter's art, and this last will not only mark the owner's real taste for art, but will prevent the accumula tion of dust on the picture frames. Flock papers should never be used ex » when thev arc painted over, i loriu a natural rer»o».i««ln fnr riu*t nnrt seem to absorb the greatest quan tity of foulness from the air, and when the flock is not dyed "ingrain" when ever they are touched some of the col oring matter conies off and is mixed with the air of tlie room. Mr. Aitchi son was greatly inclined to recommeud the varnishing of all papers so that they could be cleaned with a sponge; but it was absolutely essential to var nish them in nurseries. Children will lick the papers, and neither lead, cop per, nor arsenic can be good for them. Beauty of form and color have a very important effect upon our health. All of us can bear witness to the dullness of a room of one color, in which we are to sit when we are without occu pation, and the desire we then have for some beautiful and intricate pattern to relieve its monotony. When a room is adorned with pictures we have not merely occupation, but delight, and those higher emotions that are only ex cited by the tine arts. When we choose wall-papers, those that are more beau tiful in form and color are to be pre ferred. We should, however, satisfy ourselves tlfat the patterns on the papers with which our rooms are hung have not a look of motion. Nothing is more distressing than to be in a room where the pattern of the paper seems always crawling like a bag of worms It would be well if we could have all things about us in beautiful form, ele gantly simple, and all the colors har monious and restrained; these great qualities seem to impart to us the feel ing of self-restraint, dignity, and re pose. IS • - Shaksj».'«ire's Apples. To a dweller in Warwickshire many words and allusions in Shakspoare's plays, which might puzzle a southron, are "familiar as household words." And no more satisfactory answer, it seems to me can he found in the ab surd so-called Baconian tlieorv than the locai coiur, me uisiancuv »»ntwiuw shire savor tha# abounds in all Shaks peare's writings. Justice Shallow's "leather coats" out of the orchard are a brown russet peculiar to the neigh borhood of Stratford. At Cleeve and Littleton the "bitter-sweeting," about which Romeo and Mercutio bandy words, is prized as a cider apple. ''Borneo—Nay, irood goose, bite not. Mercutio—Tliy wit i- a v-ry bitter sweet ing, it is a most sharp since. Borneo—And is it not w dl served unto a sweet eoosi ? ' Again, a Warwickshire friend tells me that a large yellow wild apple, tempting to look at, and horribly sour to taste, grows below Edgehill, exactly answering to lloloferue's pedantic de scription of "the pomewater, who now hangeth like a jewel in the ear of caelo, the sky the welkin, the heaven; and anon falleth like a crab on the face of terra, the soil, the land, the earth." —"Love's Labor's Lost," iv., 2. We still hear the children who gather a bunch of wild flowers iu the cornfields call the little wild pansy "love-in-idle ness." The toys out bird-minding call their scare-crows "malkins," or "maw kin," as they pronounce it, and talk of a hedgehog as an "urchin." Only last Spring I found some of our little vil lage lads making whistles from the hollow stalks of the common hemlock, Conium maculalmn, and asking what they called the plant was answered, "Thaay be kecks." The poor little souls never dreamed that they were using the very word which Shakspeare put into Burgundy's mouth in his mag nificent description of France wasted by war .—The English Illustrated Maga zine. Jasper and the Style. Mrs. Jasper lived out in the country away from frivolity and fashion. On one occasion, when her husband was going to the city to sell a carload of potatoes, she admonished him to be sure and remembar what the styles were, so he could tell her. When he came home she was all anxiety to know the latest. She plied him with questions, and finally reached the sub ject nearest to her heart. "And did you notice the styles, Jere miah?" she'asked. "You bet I did, Sairey." "Was they great?" "They were powerful, Sairey." "They was, Sairey Jasper, I tell you. Why, Sairey, them vyorueq wore nicer dresses out on the street every day than you were married in, and Sairey, that dross o' yourn wau't uo slouch, now was it?" ' "No, Jeremiah; and what kind o' shawls was they warin'?" "Shawls, Sairey? Shawls? Why, bless your life, they warn'» warin' shawls at all; leastwise most on 'em wan't. Why. Sairey, they wore some kind o' haircloth coats, tanned with the hair right on, and they was liner'n your best apple pie." "What kind o' bonnets did von see?" "All kinds." "Was they high qr lq\v hqqngfo Jeremiahs" "High, Sairey, dreadful high, seen one in a winder and thinks I that'll suit Sairey to a 'J', so I stepped in and set the price, and would you be lieve it, Sairey, they wanted $4.50 for the thing, and 1 told the gal that showed it to me that pertaters was middlin' high, but not so high as bon nets, and then I walked straight out." — lioston Beacon.
