Differences in families united by mar riage are mostly on the Bide of tlie wom en. Woman fails in tact to preserve the amenities of the hearth. The soft an swer or the repression wliioh evades an issue is more on the part of the man than the wife. Young women manage their lovers, but lose their skill to manage their husbands. Women make the cliques in congregations, c'urrcU Bocie tfes, family hotels, boarding-houses, and wherever lovely woman predominates. Lack of tact makes the traditional mother-in-law. Fathers-in-law have too much tact to be fussy snd irritating in matters that should be left alone. Men live harmoniously in clubs without get ing into hostile divisions. The Tierrou. American Woman. The New York Times has been analyz ing the state of American woman, and says: " They are, as a rule, bundles of nerves which lie so near the surface as to be touched by every occurrence, and which are so sensible as to vibrate to every emotion. Their waste of nervous force is painful to contemplate, for every student of humanity knows that it must be requited. Whether they talk or write, stay at home or travel, enjoy or Buffer, they ftel and show an intensity which is absurdly superfluous. They expend force enough iu a day to last them a week ; they make tnilgs momentous ; they throb and thrill over insignificance. Always keyed up to concert pitoh, they cannot be toned down without seeming to themselves insipid and commonplace. Most of their feeiings are raptures; their views are ever fervid and high-coiored ; they revel in superlative s and hunger for new ones; they Foar iu the zenith and cherish still loftier aspirations. Every thing is pcssiblo to them but repose." ISovF V.'oiiieli hlion: ! Dress. An American authority says : " No lady need be ashamed to dress plainly or cheaply ; she Cf.n, with the help of the modern guides to dress, appear like a lady on very little money. She can lay down three rules for herself : Never to pretend to anything, never to wear false jewelry, and, aflirmatively, always to be neat. A youiio; girl with a white muslin and a fresh flower is dressed for a Queen's ball. A lady of maturer years, with a well-iitting dark silk, real jewelry or none, and her own harr all the bet ter if it is white is also dressed for a ball. True womanhood includes 11 the delicate refinements that overflow in the perfect g'ove, tho well-fitting shoe, the piet'y stocking, the neat frills, tho be coming boimat. The American woman, to do her only justice, is not a creature by instinct, and, if she occasionally gives too much thought to dress, she is still to ba admired and commended for her daintiness. " The Qnccn of (lie avv-Iiut Arena. Mr. Biggs was sauntering around the Union Depot as tho evening train came in from Uufhuo, when surprised with ; "Why, Biggs ! How are you, old fellow ? " " Well, if it ain't Jack Duncan ! Glad to see you. Come right along home with me. " No, Biggs ! Tm too dirty."

" Well, since the wife is away Til snr render. We'll have a regular rooeter night of it." Jack Duncan is a bachelor? with a holy horror of women. Feininine pres ence paralyzes and stultifies him. " Here's the linen," showing him into the bath-room a few minutes later. " There's the bath all ready. Now Bhape up while I go down to oe Rich ards' and order up one of orar old col lege lunches. Nobody in the house ; M just splash around at pleasure." Biggs departed, leaving the door ajat Jack did not notice it in his eagerne for immersion. He had just tumbled out and resume his pantaloons when he heard footsteps approaching the door. Thinking it was Biggs returning he seized the freshly lauudried shirt, opening at fEo back, and jammed his head into it. It come down over his face, completely blindfold ing him, and the starch baffled his efforts to tunnel through. Just as he commenced straddling around with suspenders dangling he heard a rustle that congealed his blood. The door squeaked, and a cheery voice said: " Now I've got you, Mr. Biggs. The train left me, so I made a call or two and came back. I heard you playing sea lion in the bath-room as I entered the house; I got the buggy whip and slipped up to pay you back for everlastingly teasing me. Now, I'm ringmaster, dear hubby. Move lively!" And she popped her whip in . a business way that sus pended the bachelor's animation. The shirt hid his fac?, and, taking his silence for a spousal submission to tlie joke, Bhe began: "Gentlemen and Ladies: Mile. Biggs, queen of the sawdust arena, will now in troduce her handsome and perfestly trained trick mule, Hubby Darling. He will walk "the arena on his hind feet, with head and forepaws shrouded in a linen canopy. Coma now. Hubby ! Hoop la I hoop la ! ' She chirped, fetching him a wipe with the whip that made his bare feet spank the floor like a clog dancer. "Limber up, Hubby ! 'Lively now. Up, p, ri," atd she underscoied the last "up" with a briar cut, making Hubby Darling skip so impulsively that Darling's dsingling suspenders swished about like a douney's tail, and hii hinds dove instinctively to tho preservation of his unstayed pantaloons.

Origin of the Word Roorback. - Nathan Guilford, once a well-known citizen of Cincinnati, was an active Whig politician, and editor of an energetio Whig paper. On April 1, of a certain year, he published a circumstantial ac count of experiments by a German chemist named Roorback. Roorback Lad been examining the chemical con stituents of eggs of different birds, sup posing it might be possible at last to compound a hatchable egg. According to the story, after putting many oi his manufactured eggs to the animal heat of different patient mothers, he at last happily succeeded in hatching one egg and produced a hiving bird. The stoiy then goes on to describe very minutely the strange creature, anatomically, physiologically and every other way, imitating the scientific style vised in similar cases. The story read very well, and was copied into many other papers, and, after going the rounds of the press in all part3 of the United States, it was at last (after three or four months) dis covered to have been first published on the 1st of April. The Cincinnati Enquirer (Democrat ic) immediately fixed upon Mi. Guilford the name of Roorback, which was there after held to mean a political liar, although the story bad nothing to do with politics. Being" well sluck to, the name at last became pretty . well fixed, and Mr. G. was for many years well known in the political field as Old Roorback. Bears Helping Each Other. A gentleman was once making inquir ies, in Russia, about the method of catching bears iu that country. He was told that, to intrap them, a pit was dug several feet deep, and, alter covering it over with turf, leaves, etc., some food was placed on the top. The bear, if tempted by the bait, easily foil into the snare. "But," he added, "if four or five happen to get in togethor, they all man age to get out again." " How is that ?" asked the gentle man. "They form a sort of ladder by step ping on each other's shoulders, and thus make their escape." "But how does the bottom one get out ?' " Ah t these bears, though not pos sessing a mind and soul such as God has given us, yet can feel gratitude ; and they won't forget the one who has been the chief means of procuring their liber ty. Scampering off, they fetch the branch of a tree, which they let down to their poor brother, enabling hi speedi ly to join them in the freedom in which they rejoice." Sensible bears, we should say, and a great deal better than some people that we hear about, who never help anybody but themselves. The Carrier Dove. Solemn Thoughts. " Be jabers," said Patrick O'Rafferty, as he was reading about a case of sui cide ; " be jabers, if iver I take me own life it will be wid chloroform." " Nivir do the loike of that, Pat," said Mrs. O'Rafferty, "for yer inimies will bring it up agin ye aitherward as long as ye live." "I know all that, but little I'll oare. It's the best way to doi, for ye see, Mrs, O'Rafferty, ye just doze off, and ye don't aven know ye are dead till yer wake up, and rade about it in the papers." "That's thrue." said Mrs. O'Rafferty, solemnly, and the subject was dropped. A sotTKa lady who had ordered home a pair of unusually high-heeled boot was flushed by the announcement by Bridget, fresh from answering the door bell, " If ye plaize, miss, there is a man in tho hall beiow wid a pp.irof shtOts for rezS'Ilvnic Cirefe: Men Who Influenced Their Age.' The course of history is not a mere game played by a few great men ; nor yet does it run in an inflexible groove which no single man can turn a?ile. The great man influences his age, but at the same time he is influenced by his age. Borne of the greatest of men, as far as their natural gifts went, have been useless or mischievous, because they have been out of gear with their own age. Their own age could not receive them, and they could not make their age other than what it was. The most use ful kind of great man is he who is just so far in advance of his age that his age can accept him as its leader and teacher. Men of this kind are themselves part of the course of events ; they guide it ; they make it go quicker or slower, but they do not thwart it. Can we, for instance, overrate the gain which came to the new-born federation of Ameiica by find ing such a man as Washington ready made to its hand ? Or take men of quite another stamp from the Virginian de liverer. The course of her history for ihe last 800 yeara has been largely af fected by the fact not only the., we uu derwent a foreign conquest, but that we underwent a foreign conquest of a par ticular kind, such as could be wrought only by a man of a particular kind. The course of our history for the last 800 years has been largely affected by the fact that, when English freedom was in the greatest danger, England fell into the hands of a tyrant whose special hu mor it was to carry on his tyranny under the forms of law. English history could not have been what it has been if William the Conqueror and Henry YELL had been men otherthan what they were. . One blushes to put the two names together. William was great in himself, and must have been great in any time or plaoe. Henry, a man not without great gifts, but surely not a great man, was made important by cir cumstances in the time and place in which he lived. But each influenced the course of events by his personal charac ter. But they influenced events only in the sense of guiding, strengthening and quickening some tendencies and keeping others back for a while. Neither of them, nor Washington either, belong to that class of men who, for good or for evil, tuca the world upside down, the great destroyers and the great creators of history. Freeman, in Fortnightly Eeriew. Arc Apartment Houses Hotels No less a persrnage than Gen. Han cock elicited from the Supreme Court some explanation on this subject. He took for his family rooms at one of the leading family hotels in this city. The engagement was for the entire winter, unless the General should be ordered away on military duty. This did not occur, the party remained, and during the winter valuable jewels belonging to Mrs. Hancock were stolen from her apartment. The proprietor of the hotel denied being responsible for the loss, for he said that, when rooms are let for the entire season, at a fixed price per month, the establishment is not an inn, but an apartment house. Thus we see that there is opportunity for nice distinctions even important ones between the three arrangements : visiting a hotel without making any bargain, hiring an entire house and lot for the year round, and the hulf-way plan coming into vogue, under which the owner of the budding retains the general manage ment of it, just as in a hotel, while the tenant hires a suite for a definite term, just as one takes a house. La -the Han cock cose the Judge said he considered the establishment a hotel. It was called a hotel and kept in the manner of a hotel on the European plan. And the liiring was not absolutely for the winter, but subject to be closed if the General should be ordered away. Therefore the proprietor was told he must pay, as an nn-keeper, for the stolen jewels. But, if the establishment had been avowedly on "apartment house," if no business in' receiving transients had been done, and if the rooms had been hired for the win ter, irrespective of contingencies, the tenants would, no doubt, have been told that their property was at their own risk with respect to thieves.- New York Tribune. The Russian Hangman. There is but one state executicner in the vast Russian realm, and he is a par doned malefactor named Froloff, who, in the pre-Nihilistic days, when the aboli tion of capital punishment was still maintained in Muscovy, committed three successive murders, and wa3 condemned to penal servitude for life. When, how ever, revolutionary successes rendered the Bervices of an imperial hangman in dispensable to the Ministry of Justice, Froloff volunteered for the office on con dition that an amnesty for his past mis deeds should be granted him. His offer was accepted, and for some time past be has been a busy man. For every "func tion" he receives 40 silver rubles about S30 from the Russian exchequer ; but that offioial fee by no means represents the total emolument he derives from the practice of his liandicraf t," for he is per mitted to trade upon the superstition still current in Russian society respect ing the luck conferred upon gamestere by the possession of a morsel of the rope with which a human being has been strangled, either by the hand of justioe or by his own. ' " An Ohio ero. The Ohio boy is full of genius. He had been reading that Nero fiddled while Rome burned, and his fancy was kindled by the mere thought of the sublime spectacle. How hard it is to repress the precocity that bespeaks the possession of heaven-born endowments, Oue after noon this boy set fire to the woodshed, and, crawling up on adjoining fence, covered his mother's hair comb with a bit of paper, and played "Way Down Upon the Suwanee River" while the conflagration proceeded. He took his meals standing for several days after ward. That obscure poison which produces hydrophobia has been known to lie latent in the human system for years before developing its fatal results. M. Pasteur asserts that the supposition is well supported that the virus does de velop in certain organs, and not, as in other cases, in the biood; and that when, after a period variable according to cir cumstances, the organized poison passes into the blood, seveie symptoms come on rapidly and the victim soon dies. An explanation substantially the same as this had long been advanced as a mere theory, but M. Pasteur advances it as an ascertained physiological fact. Bomb persons are born with a strong natural instinct to be just. But it is also a habit of mind which mtiy be increased and improved by study and reflection, and which should be sedulous; v cultivated.' BUTLER AXD THE SP00S. Tne Alleged True Story of Tils Dls-1 . position of the Silver. What purports to be a trustworthy ex planation of the manner in which Gen. Benjamin F. Butler acquired tie un happy fame of being a purloiner of sil-1 ver spoons is given by a . Washington I correspondent: A lady went to Gen. Garfield, some months ago, and intro- I duced herself as the daughter of Gen. 1 David E. Twiggs, who left our array.. where he had gained the rank of Major General, to join the secessionists at tha opening of the Rebellion. She '-stated her object to be the recovery of her father's two swordscaptured by Butler when he entered i?---orrisicii spring of 1SG Oue sword had been voted to Twists by Congress in reco" nition of his services during the Mexi- ' can war ; the other was the weapon he had drawn in behalf of the Confederaev. She Was particularly anxious to secure the latter, because her father had prized it far above its follow. Garfield referred her to But'er, whom she feared to meet on a.t uithe terrible rr putation ho had gained in the South. Hiving been assured that he was not nearly so black as he had been painted, she sought him out, and, to her surprise, was vt ry po litely received. He uiiormod her thht he had sent the swords to Washington, with the request that oue be given to the Annapolis Academy and the other to West Point, as tropbu s of the civil wor. His request was not comi,lied witu' They were, instead, locked up in the vaults of the treasury for safe keeping,' and one of the duplicate keys was de livered to him. He then added : " You have not, my dear madam, asked ma. about your family plate, which I have so often been accused of stealing to dec crate my own table with. You no doubt,' in common with many Southerners think the charge true. As soon as I hat occupied your father's deserted house, one of your servants came to me with a load of silver, saying that your father had buried it in the garden to keep it from the hated Yankees, but that, now ho had gone, the servant, having soeii the act, dug it up, and was desirous to huid it over to the proper authorities." I used the silver while I had my head quarters at your father's place; but after ward Iturned every piece spoons, forks salvers and dishes over to the Quar termaster's Department. Here, madam, are the vouchers for every article brought me by your colored servant." And Butler opened his dosk and took out a ueatly-arrangcd packet of papera, each of which was regularly and formally signed and credited, relieving Butler from all responsibility in the much vexed matter. This will not, of course,' prevent most of the Southerners and many of the .Northerners from swearing that Butler did steal Twiggs' silver, and never returned it and never accounted for it. There are f alsfthoods which no " amount of truth or disproval will or can extinguish ; and Butler and the spoons is a conspicuous example thereof. So Chance for Him." He was coming down street with a "crick" iu his back, a wobble in lik knees and a thumb tied up in. a raj Perspiration bad wilted his collar anl. made his flannels crawl up, and eaoa knee carried the marks of dust. .

" I never heard that Henry was any such man."
