Considering what wars sho had, at homo and abroad, you can well imagino what an immenso multitudo of old, torn, moth eaten, yet over-glorious ensigns, from Central Asia to Poland are bung upon her sa cred walls.

Upon our drives wo notico somo line triumphal arches, copied after tho class ic modols of thoso of othsr countries and other monuments, but nono equal to tho suporb Aloxandor Column, orectod In 1832, which Is a solid shaft of red granlto, tho greatest monolith of tho world.

Next to our fa'th in God, thoro is nothing so essential to the healthy growth of our wholo being as an un shakon faith in m&a.Mttlltr, Table Manners. Mrs. O. II. Ward, In Youth's Companion. Tho first essential of refinement in life nnd mannor is a total absonco of pretension; nnd tho first point necessary to be consldorod in tho arrangement and ordering of a homo is that ovdry thing should bo on a scalo exactly pro portionate to tho husband's income. Let all young housekeepers begin lifo by a resoluto abnegation of shams. As weath increases, expenditures may in croaso; but never forget that misery is tho result of living boyond ono's means. To embollsh homo, to mako happy tho lives of thoso near and dear ones who dwell within it, is a task of no littlo hon or, rewarded by no scant meed of grat ltudo and praiso. Tho ideal wifo and mother "openoth her mouth with wisdom; and hor tonguo Is tho law of kindness. Sho lookoth woll to tho ways of her household, and catcth not tho bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call hor blessed; her husband, also, and ho praiseth her." Nothing rollecls moro upon homo training than bad maimers nt table. Restlessness, shown by fidgeting in your scat, moving tho feet unnecessa rily, playing with tho tablo utensils, or crumbling tho broad, is very annoying to thoso who havo beon trained correct ly in youth. To opon tho mouth wnilo chowlng tho food, instead cf kooping tho lips oloscd; to talk when tho mouth is full; to suck up soup from tho spoon; to put a knlfo in tho mouth; to bond tho head low down ovor the plato; eating rapidly, or to mako any noiso in eating, aro breaches of good manners. Chow tho food woll, but quietly, and oat slowly. Nover uso a spoon for any thing but liquids, ico crenm, cheoje, fish (where silver fish knives aro not used). Everything that can bo eaten without a knlfo or spoon, should bo oaten with a fork; such as sweet bread, rissoles. pies, etc. Bread is alwavs broken when not butterod; not bitten nor cut with a knifo. Easo and good breeding aro nowhere moro indisponsablo than at tho dinner tablo, and tho absonco of thorn is no whero moro apparent. As soon as you aro sealed nt a dinner party, romovo your gloves; half-unfold you tablo nap kin, and piaco it across your lap, put ing your roll on tho left of your plato. As soon as you aro holpetl, begin to eat. Tho custom of waiting i obsolete. Take soup from tho sido of tho spoon, and bo careful not to mako n nolso In doing so. By tilting tho spoon you enn avoid sucking it up. Nover tilt tho plato however. Soup and fish aro not taken a second timo. You can refuso any dish that is passed. After eating tho mouth should bo wiped with tho napkin, beforo drink ing. Fruit is eaten with a silver knifo and forK, after whiih you dip your fingers In tlio iingor glass, wiping them on tho table-napkin, not on tho d'oyloy. If a linger glass and d'oyloy aro placed on your dessert plato, you should nt onco remove tho glass and d'oyloy, placing thorn on your loft hand; tho glass on tho d'oyley. Also, when a plate is placed before you, with a fork nnd knlfo on it, imme diately removejfork and knifo, or spoon to your right hand. It is a mistake to keop guests ovor two hours at tablo, oven at grand dinnors. Ono hour is tho limit of an unocromonlous dinner, whoro host, hostoss nnd servants under stand their duties. The Fronch havo a proverb to tho ef fect that tho master or mistress who has a noblo heart is oasy to servo.
