EARLY INSTRUCTION. Why Clillilreii Should Be Made to Do Work Suitable for Their ,1**. If possible, parents, teach your chil dren to do work suitable aud proper for their age. If a mistake is made, do not reprove them sternly. Kindly point it out. if unnoticed, and allow them to undo or correct it, if it is in their power. Mothers aro often so hurried and worried with work and the care of children, that they feel or think they have no time to teach them to cut out simplo articles, or to do sew ing, knitting, etc. The oldest daughter is usually taught those useful arts as early as her sixth year. There seems to bo time to i us tract her, as the wants of those younger do not yet need atten tion in that way. Tho oldest son, too, is early caltod to help about work. Younger sisters wait on tho little ones, and often spend tho rest of their time in play. Kocreution Is nocos sary, but if kopt up too long, fatigue is tho result. Boys and girls, whose homo is on a farm have peculiar ad vantages for learning to do work suited to their capacity. Tho well-kept dis trict schools of tho country are ploas ant places in which to gain knowledge. Tho long walks to and from school, with fields of grain and orchards bor dering on tho road, have charms for hoalthy, happy children. After sup per, when the evening work is done, tho lamps are lighted, and lessons studied. Reading and play have a share of thoir attention also. With all these, time oan bo taken for need ful instruction in needlework, etc., for girls. Be determined in this matter, dear mothers. See to it that every piece of work assigned to each is fin ished by herself, and within a reason able time. Never allow a child to say: "O, it's no matter when I finish this," or, "Any time, will do." Theso arc dangerous expressions for young or old to use, as they help to form the habit of putting off until to-morrow the work of to-day. Strive to inspire your children with self-respoot by your sensible example and advice, and they will respect and honor you in return. — Rural New Yorker. _ —The destruction of forests has pro ceeded so rapidly in Prussia of late years that the Government has passed a law protecting timber.

Jnltan llsn-thornc Kxplslna Why It Does Not Fay to Write Hooka. We may talk about tho hardships of American literature (having assumed, for tho sake of argument, that such a thing exists), but what would be tho state of that alleged literature if there had been no American magazines? Supposo I, as an American author, write a novel, and arrange with a pub lisher to bring it out at tho price of $1 a volume, or 50 cents paper. If he has confidence in tho book, tho first edition will be 1,000 copies; my share of tho proceeds on tho ordinary 10 per cent basis is $ 100 , payable at tho ond of the year. If I livo by my pen I must subsist during that year on noth ing at all, ami when I get my $100 l must pay out of it my debts for that last year, and probably my present funeral expenses, for who can livo 011 35 cents a day, even if he were not obliged to starve to death before lie could enter upon tho enjoyment of that princely income? But let us bo ex travagant and utopian—lot us say that my edition is 6,000 copies, instoad of 1,000. In that caso—which porhaps occurs as often as onoe in a thousand times—my reward amounts to tho sum of no less than $5(X)— assuming, of course, what is never tho fact, that all tho copies sold aro in tho dollar cloth form, and none in tho 50 cents paper. Five hundred dollars a year for a suc cessful novol! How many of our authors make twico that? How many ten times as much? How many twenty times as much? I will engage to ontertain at dinner, at a round table five foet in diameter, all the American novelists who make more than $ 1,000 a year out of tho royalty on any ono of their novels, and to givo thorn all they want to eat and drink, and threo of tho best cigars apiece afterwards, and a hack to take them homo in; and I will agree to forfeit $1,000 to tho Home for Imbeciles if $25 does not liquidate the bill and leave enough over to buy a cloth copy of each of the works in question, with tho author's autograph on tho fly-leaf. Ono hack would be sufficient, and would allow of thoir putting up their feet on the «ont in front of them.

Description of s Forwarding fltnti Siberian Exiles. The Tluraon prison was originally built to hold 500 prisoners, but was subsequently enlarged by means of de ; tachod barracks so that it could accom modate H00. On the day of our visit, as we woro informed by a small black board hanging beside the office door, it contained 1,741. As wo approached the entrance we woro stopped by an armed sentry, who, upon being informed that we desired admittance, shouted through a square port-holo in the heavy gate, i "Star-she-e-e!" (the usual call for the ! officer of the day). A corporal or ser if or ant ful or géant with a saber at his side and a Colt's revolver in a holster on his hip, answered the summons, carried our note to tike warden, and in a moment we worn admitted to tho prison yard. Fifty or sixty exiles and convict» wore walking aimlessly back and forth in front of tho main prison building, or sitting idly ingroups here and thoroon the ground. They woro all dressed from head to foot in a costume of gray, consisting of a visorless Scotch cap, a shirt and trousers of coarse homespun linon, ami a long gray overcoat with ono or two diamond-shaped patches of black or yellow cloth sewn upon tho back between tho shoulders. Nearly all of thorn woro leg-fetters, and tho air was filled with a peculiar clinking of chains which suggested the continuous jingling of innumerable bunehos of keys. The first "kamera" or coll that we entered was situatod in a one-story log barrack standing against tho wall on the left of tho gate, and built evidently to reçoive tho overflow from the crowded main building. Tho room was about 35 foet in length by 26 in width and 12 feet high; Its walls of hewn logs woro covered with dirty whitewash; its rough plank floor was black with dried mud and hard-trodden filth; and it was lighted with three grated windows looking out into tho prison yard. Down the center of the room, and occupying about half its width, ran tho sleoplng-beneh—a woodon platform 12 feet wide and 30 foot long, supported, at a height of 2 foet from the floor, by Btout posts. Each longitudinal half of this low platform sloped a little, roof-wise, from tho center, so that when tho prisoners slept upon it in two closoly paekod transverse rows, their headB in the middle ware a fow inehos higher than their feet at the edges. These sleep ing platforms are known as "naros," and a Siberian prison contains no othor furniture oxcopt a large wooden tub for excrement. The prisoners have neither pillows, blankets, nor bod clothing, and must lie on these hard plank nares, with no covering but thoir overcoats. As wo entorod tho coll, tho convicts, with a suddon jingling of chains, sprang to thoir feet, and stood silently in a dense throng around the nares. "Hdrastvuitul rebiata!" ["How do you do, boys!"] said the warden. "Zd ravie zhelaiom vasha vwlsoki blag arodio" ["Wo wish you health, your high nobility"], shouted a hundred voices in a boarso chorus. "The prison," said tho warden, "Is terribly ovor-orowdod. This cell, for exumple, is only 35 foet long by 26 wide, and lias sir space for 35, or at most 40 mon. How many men slept here hist night?" lie inquired, turning to the prisoners. "A hundred and sixty, your high nobility," shouted half a dozen hoarse voices —Ocorrje Kennan, in Century. by all a a Some Triplet Maxims. Throo things to love—courage, gen ond affection.
