The Sorties n a rini/-House in Japan Prof. Morse thus describes a Japanese theater in a recent letter "The first time I attended one of these theaters I went at 10 o'clock in the morning. I had a lecture at 11, and several ether matters of importance to attend to during the day, but for once in my life I cut my lecture, and never left the theater until 11 o'clock that night. The fighting scenes are a Chi nese importation. Upon being hit, the actors full backward with great violence and stick their legs up in the air. I saw an actor represent one of the banmrax keeping an attacking party of peasants at bay with his fan. At last, when hard pressed by a great number of assailauts armed with spears, clubs, etc., he said he must really draw his sword, and put his hand on the hilt for the purpose whereupon the whole at tacking party, thirty or forty in num ber, instantly fell on their backs, and stuck their legs up in the air—which token of the prowess of their upper class gave much gratification to the audience. An orchestra caged up at one side of the stage keeps up a contin ual accompaniment, while an individual in a similar cage at the other side furnishes a constant supply of sighs, groans and yells, appropriate to tiie supposed emotions of the players. The plays are perloimed by men only, women parts being acted by them or, if women appear at ail, they take all parts, both sexes never appearing in the same play. A foreigner who wishes to under stand the ancient customs, manners and dress of the people must attend the the aters. Tiio spectacle of harikari is per formed with a ghastly fidelity to details which makes it unbearable by a person of delicate sensibilities. The theater tickets are blocks of wood a foot square. Music among the Japanese does not en ter into the life of tne people as with us it is not heard at the fireside nor in the temples there are no student songs, nor does the exultation of victory find expression in music. The principal mu sical instruments are the samisen, a sort of banjo, played with a small ivory in strument the koto, a harp, which rest3 on the ground, has movable bridges, and is played with ivory thimble-like shields upon the fingers the sho, a bowl shaped vessei with a number of upright reeds rising from it, with vents near the lower ends governed by the fingers of both hands, giving an effect like that of the bagpipe and the biwa or flute." BONAPAKTE'S HANDWRITING, Francis I., of Austria, paid of his son in-law after the battle of Waterloo I always thought that man would end badly he wrote such a villainous hand." And, indeed, it became so bad as to be almost wholly illegible. If read at all it is by guess, or that second sight which the blind clerks of the dead letter office are popularly supposed to possess. Much of it is represented by blanks in the transcriptions, and there are many words at the translation of which by an expert the well-tried reader of manuscript can only shake a doubt ing head. But this was not always so. While he was a subaltern of artillery his hand, although never good, was at least human, and clear and legible. There was a sort of correspondence between it and his simple, direct learing of those days when lie disdained personal ap pearance, ani the long, flat, straight black hair partly hid and lengthened the sallow face, and everything about him was grave, rude, austere. He was not born to a bad hand, although, lika Lamartine, Byron and many other great men, he could never learn to spell and, after the 18th Brumaire, the laws of or thography incommoded him quite as littie as any others. But, no matter how bad his writing was, "La plume entre sesmanis," as Lamartine wrote, "nobs valUt une epee.** HUaRAND AND WIFE. A Baltimore Judge decides that thy people must be my people. An Ameri can woman who married a German ap plied for divorce on the ground that her husband was about deserting her and Carrying all her money to the Father land. The husband said he would not desert his wife, but that he bad deter mined to go to Germany, and the wom an refused to accompany him and in sisted on staying with her mother and the court decided that the husband had ft right to go where he chose, and that it was his wife's duty to go along with him, and so the application for divorce was denind- THB BED-ROOM. u The room in which the enfeebled'pe*" son has been sitting before going to bed has been warmed, probably, up to summer heat a light meal has leen taken before retiring to rest, and then the bed-room is entered. The bed room, perchance, has no fire in it or, if a fire is lighted, provision is not made to keep it alight for more than au hour or two. The result is that in the early part of the morning, from 3 to 4 o'clock, when the temperature in all parts is lowest, the glow from the fire or stove which should warm the room has ceased, and the room is cold to on ex treme degree. In country houses the water will often be found frozen in the h&nd- basins or ewers under these con ditions. Meanwhile the sleeper lids mi conscious of the great change which is taking place in the air around him. Slowly and surely there is a decline of temperature to the extent, it may be, of 30 or 40 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale, and though he may be fairly cov ered with bed clothes he is receiving in to his lungs this cold air by which the circulation through the lungs is ma terially modified. The condition of the body itself is at this very time unfavora ble for meeting any emergency. In the period between midnight and 6 o'clock in the morning the animal vital pro cesses are at their lowest ebb. It is in these times that those who are enfeebled from any cause most frequently die. We physicians consider these hours as critical, and forewarn anxious friends in respect to them. From time immemor ial those who have been accustomed to wait and attend on the sick haVe noted these hours most anxiously, so that they have been called by one of our old writers "the hours of fate." In this space of time the influence of the life giving sun has been longest withdrawn from man, and the hearts that are even the strongest beat then with subdued tone. Sleep is heaviest and death is nearest to us all in the hours of fate." The feeble, therefore, are most exposed to danger during this period of time, and they are most exposed to one par ticular danger, that of congestion of the lungs, for it is the bronchial surface of the lungs that is most exposed to the action of the chilled air, and in the aged that exposure is hazardous.—Dr. B. \V. Eichardson, In Oood Worda. IF PROFESSIONALLY, ALL RIGHT IF PERSONALLY "That reminds me," he said, about a little affair that our friend Blunt, the city editor of the Kansas City Journal, once figured in. He had written or passed something that was particularly unpleasant to one of the parties men tioned. The fellow met him at a soda fountain in one of the public bar rooms, and, tapping him on the shoulder, said •I think you're a liar.' Blunt had a glass in his hand which he had just drained. He looked formidable as he turned around and seized the enemy. Well he asked, do I understand that you call me a personal, or a professional liar The question staggered the man with a grievance A personal or a professional liar he echoed. H'm, I don't know as to that I guess I mean a professional liar.' Ah, now you com pliment me,' said Blunt, resting his gloss on the walnut slab. If you had called me a personal liar I would have crawled your frame if it had been the last act of my life.' They compromised on soda."—Denver Tribune WHERE THET HAD HI3I. About twenty years ago certain lo calities in Michigan were frightened half to death about small-pox, and sev eral towns had stringent regulations re garding vaccination. In one village in Macomb county the duty of bringing in delinquents was intrusted to a constable named Simmonds. He worked with great energy, and at last he had every body in except an old chap named Williams, who sternly refused to come forward. The constable laid for liimt however, brought him a prisoner to the doctor's office, and ordered him to peel" his arm and make ready. It was then discovered that he had once irrestled with small-pox, and, of course, Vaccination was not necessary. Tli6 constable was all broke up for a minute aad Williams was chuckling with satis faction, when the officer suddenly asked: Save you ever had the measles "Yes." "Mnmpa?" 'VYes." "Chicken-pox?" "Yes." Well, I've had a week's trouble to get hold of you, and I'll be hanged if you are going to beat me this way I You haven't had the cholera and I know it, and we don't propose to have t.hia town devastated by grim death tliix summer. Doctor, 111 hold him down and you vaccinate him for the cholera?" PBOF. FOWLER sometimes makes the mistake of getting hold of a boy who has been to the skating rink for the first time, instead of a boy. born with twen ty-three swellings on his head, and this is one reason why so many people refuse to believe in phrenology....: JU.

C/urtis in a recent lecture says: It was a long time sinoe James Gordon Bennett was still alive, and so was Horace Greoley, but both were old men, if silvered heads and beardB make age. A. A. Low, the then President of the New York Chamber of Commerce, had returned from an European tour. A great complimentary bauquot was given Mr. Low at the Fifth Avenne Hotel. His Honor, the Mayor, was thore so was Judge Brady in fact, idl the big guns of the bar, and all tho famous edi tors, except the elder Bennett, who never went to dinners. After all the magnates were seated, the reporters were admitted—there were fonrteon of them—and were taken to a long table which was not set for a dinner, though admirably adapted for writing purposes, The waiters trooped in with tho viands 1 but ignored the reporters, who boro the i slight until tho course had been served then, }y mutual agreement, they arose and tramped silently out of the banquet hall in Indian file. Horace Greelye, I Man ton Marble, Jones, of the Times I Brady, of the Mail and Brooks, of the i Express, saw tho departure. Mr. Greeley laughed and said: "The boys arc serving 'em just right." Tho guest of the evening looked on in dismay he 1 was primed with a long speech that ho i wanted well reported. After an absence of two hours the re porters returned from the bar-room of the hotel, where they had wliiled away the time in sampling the ice-watex, and I perhaps something stronger. No soon I er had they got buck to their table than i waiters welu cent to them with win* and 1 cigars. Both were indignantly rejected. We are here to work, not to drink end i smoke," said tho fourteen in chorus. The Chairman of tho Committee of Arrangements came to apologize he was heard in grim silence. He said a special dinner should be provided. We are here to work, not to eat din ner," answered the fourteen. To work I apparently they went pencils flew over i paper the speakers glanced nenously at the writers they seemed to suspect their diligence, perhaps they thought it was not deserved at all. I Next morning confirmed their sua picions. The Tribune had no reference whatever to tlie dinner the Herald had twenty linn.s the World apologized that the Low dinner wa» crowded out in the Times there was a frtiekful dic tated by the editor, who fcuiolt a mouse and hurried to tiie cilice from the dinner to find not a lino of it, just as he had ex. pected. All the reporters were severely repri manded by their chiefs one of them— him of the Jlerald—lost his place, for the elder Beuneti was a merciless mas ter lie dismissed men for the veriest trifles, but his shrewd managing editor re-engaged all the valuable ones as fast as they were discharged by the inexora ble proprietor, who, in the last decade of his active life, did not know liis em ployes, with perhaps five exceptions, by sight. From that distant day to this the reporters have not been snubbed at any of the grand public dinners given in New York. WERSlEJi'S S1KA W HAT, At a Webster dinner of the Dartmouth alumni, in Boston, Marshall P. Wilder exhibited the veritable straw hat worn by Webster when working on his Marsh field farm. In speaking of Webster's remarkable control of his feelings, Mr. Wilder said that when he called upon House, and 130 acres plowed, the Massachusetts statesman the morn ing after Gen. Scott's nomination he found him serene and placid as a sum mer sea. Mr. Wilder and Judge Nesmith began to express their regrets that he did not receive the nomination, as was expected but as often as the subject was adverted to he would avoid I it, till, finally, when Mr. Wilder intro i duced it, Mr. Webster, with a smile, said "How does gnaty work on your potatoes-?" WITHOUT the rich heart, wealth is an ogly beggar. T. LAND OFFICE AT BENSON, Minn., Sep1. V 1882.
