In an article in Harper's Magazine, George Merrill tells Low the press is regulated in France. The laws which regulnte tho press continue to be very stringent, though some modifications of a liberal character have been introduced since the fall of the empire. Tims all attacks on the constituted authorities, or on the religion of the stats, or on either of the religions whose establishment is recognized by law, as well as all attacks upon the sovereign or other head of a foreign state, all publication of false news, all writings which excite the com mission of crimes or misdemeanors, or incite one class of citizens to hatred of another class, and all defamation of in dividuals, are punishable by fine and imprisonment, while the publication of merely insulting or abusive articles, not specifying any matter of fact to the detriment of private individuals i e., a simple injure, as distinguished from defamation is punishable by fine only. The accused is not permitted to justify a libel by proof of its truth, except when it refers to some action of a pub lic officer, in the discharge of his duties as such. And only in this latter case is the publication of the proceedings ai the trial allowed, though, of course, the judgment may be published. This appears to us a very salutary provision of law, which might well be introduced in America. The deposit of security (consisting of an actual payment in cash) in the hands of the Government wa3 abolished in Oc tober, 1870, but was re-established by the law of July 6, 1871, though the amount thereof is only about one-half of that fixed by the law of 1S52, the sums now required being, for every periodical appearing more than three times a week, if published in the Department of the Seine, 21,000 francs, and in any other department 12,000 francs, if published in a city having more than 50,000 inhabi tants, and 6,000 fiancs in other cases ; and for all other periodicals (except non political publications appearing not more frequently than once a week), 18,000 francs in the Department of the Seine, and in the other departments one-half of the amounts specified above. The sum so deposited as security is primarily ap plicable to the payment of all damages and costs awarded against the proprietor or manager of the xaper which publish es a libellous article, or against the au thor of tuch article. The stamp duty upon newspapers, which exibted under the empire, was abolished by decree of Sept. 5, 1870. Every publisher is still obliged to deposit two copies of every newspaper, or othet periodical is sued by him, iu the hands of the public authorities. The law of Dec. 29, 1875, provides that no administrative authority shall have the right to prohibit the sale on the public streets of any particular journal. But the most important change recently effected in favor of the press is that made by the law of April 15, 1871, removing press offenses from the juris diction of the Tribunanx Correctionels, and submitting them to trial by jury before the courts of assize. BUT TOUR SHOULDERS BACK. Much of the proverbial slenderness and physical frailty of our girls, as com pared with those of other countries, has been charged to intellectual habits and overwork in study. It is unquestionably true that they need outdoor life and more education in development. Many Amer ican girls, through inattention to the way of carrying themselves, uncon sciously contract the habit of bringing the shoulders forward and stooping. This position not only detracts greatly from their appearance, but it is also very pei nicious in point of health. The cel ebrated Aaron Bun-, in a letter to his daughter Theodosia, afterward tho wife of Gov. Alston, of South Carolina, wrote as follows on this subject: " Your habit of stooping and bringing your shoulders forward upon your breast not only disfigures you, but is alarming on account of your health. The contin uance of this vile habit will certainly produce consumption. Then farewell pleas-ire, farewell life! This is no exag geration, no fiction to excite your appre hensions. And, setting aside this dis tressing consideration, I am astonished that you have no more pride iu your ap pearance; you will certainly stint your growth and disfigure your person." There is reason to believe that Miss Burr gave heed to this admonition of her good father, for she afterward be came renowned for her beauty as well as for superior "mental endowments and accomplishments. Conjugal affection depends largely upon mutual confidence. " I make it a rule," said a wiseacre to his friend, "to tell my wife everything that happens. In this way we avoid any misunder standings." .Not to be outdone in gen erosity, the good friend replied: "Well, sir, you are not so open and frank ae I am, for I tell my wife a great many things that never heppen." PLEASANTRIES. The syllable " leo" in oleomargarine aeans that it is strong as a lion. The fellow who was much struck by a oung lady wanted to return a kiss for (he blow. Frankxis has Ben jamin his philos ophy into everybody ever since we can remember. The evening had" been convivial. And now, gentlemen," said the Chair man, "IU protose a post." Why does the new moon remind one of a giddy girl? Because she is too young to show much reflection. Motto of the cood collector Never put off until to-morrow what can be dunned to-day. Philadelnhia Chron icle. EavejiS fed the prophet Elijah in an cient days, but golden eagles feed tho prophets of the present day. Whitehall Times. Beecheb says, " We pray too much." This explains 'why the average news paper man's breeches always bag at the knees. A Brooklin fashion paper stated thai maiden's blush" was a fashionable color, and none of the readers had any idea what it was like. . Severai, notable happy ' marriages have been made on two hours' courtship, but it is a pretty safe rule to know the girl for at least three days and a picnic. " Now, Sammy, have you read tho story of Joseph?" "Oh, yes, uncle." "Well, then, what wrong did they do when they sold their brother?" "They sold him too cheap."

It would never do to select women to office. If a female Sheriff should visii the residence of a handsome man and explain to his wife that bhe had an at tachment for him, there would be a va cancy in the office in about two minutes. "A scientist name! Mivart will soon issue a work on the cat," says the New Haven Register. We've done that al ready. It was a heavy copy of Shak speare's plays, and we issued it from a thrid- story window, and it took her right between the two shoulders, and we hope it broke her blamed back. Boston P03t. Pateenal wisdom : " Pa, w hat ia en silage?" "Why h'm ensilage, my son, is nn ensilage is oh, something like mucilage, my son ; something like mucilage ; used to stick things together, you know. Thore, now, run away to your play, and don't disturb me now." And that boy thinks his pa is a very en cyclopaedia of wisdom. The teacher had grown eloquent in picturing to his little pupils the beau ties of heaven, and he finally asked : "What kind of little boys go to heav en?" A lively 4-year-old boy, with kicking boots, flourished his fist "Well, you may answer," said tho teacher. " Dead ones ! " the little fellow shouted, it the extent of his lungs. ' "Defsk again, eh?" said the magis trate, contracting his brows and looking severely at the prisoner. " Yis, ver Honor," candidly returned Pat; "I was fcfter Bplittiu' wood at yer Honor's house, and the lady asked me wud.I take suth in. 'I will,' says I, and 1 took two glasses, but. if I had known yer Honor kept such bad liquor, 'pon me owI, I .'uldu't have tuk but wan." " Mr wife got mad terribly mad t me last night," said Bagbag. " She threatened to leave me and sue for a di vorce, and, by Jove ! I was awfully scared, for I think she meant it. But I had presence of mind. I said I hoped she would ; begged, implored her to dc so, and then she swore she'd cling tome till death, just to spite me. A woman is a durn curious critter to manage, any vay." WALTER SCOTT AND HIS DOOS. So intimately were Scott's dogs bound up with his life, says a writer in Temple Bar, that, when his last financial diffi culties crowded upon him and it was for a time in his mind whether it would not be best. to sell Abbotsford, the thought of parting from " these dumb creatures" moved him more than any other painful reflections ; and he could only hope "there may yet be those who, loving me, will love my dog because it has been mine." Before he started as an invalid for Naples, one of his written instruc tions referred to the management of his dogs ; and again and again, during his foreign sojourn, he gave strict, tender and minute injunctions to Laidlaw, his steward, to be " very-,areful of the poor peojile and the dogs." He was always thinking of them. It was during this last hopeless journey that he spoke to the large Danish hound which, stranger though he was, fawned upon him at the Castle of Bracciaao of his " fitness as an accompaniment to such a castle ;" but that he himself had "larger dogs at home, though, may be, not so good natured to strangers." It was in Naples, too, where Sir William Gell's huge dog used to be fondled by Scott, and talked to, and informed of the " dogs he had at home ;" while he would confide to Sir William how he had " two very fine favorite dogs, Nimrod and Bran " "so large that I am always afraid they look too large and too feudal for my di minished income." And it was his dogs who, as the last days drew near, came round his chair and began to fondle him and lick his hands, while their dying master cmilcd or Eobbed over them. A UNITED STATES BOUNDARY tINE. The northern boundary of this coun try is marked by some cairns,iron pillars, wood pillars, earth mounds and timber posts. A stone cairn is 7jx8 feet, an earth mound 7x14 feet, an iron pillar 8 feet high, 8 inches square at the bottom, and 4 inches at the" top ; timber posts 5 feet high and 8 inches square. There sre 382 of these marks between the Lake of the Woods and the base of the Rocky mountains. That portion of the bound ary which lies east and west of the Red river valley is marked by cast-iron pil lars at even-mile intervals. The British place one every two miles and the United States one between each two British posts. Our pillars or markers were made at Detroit, Mich. They are hollow iron castings, three-eighths of an inch in thickness, in the form of a truncated pyramid, 8 feet high, 8 inches square at the bottom and 4 inches at the top, as Deux-e Tutted. : - .-' They have at the top a solid pyramidal cap, and at tne bottom an octagonal flange one inch in thickness. Upon the opposite faees are cast in letters two iches high the inscriptions, "Convention of London" and "Oct. 20r 1818." The inscriptions begin about four feet six inches above the base, and read up ward. The interiors of the hollow posts are filled with well-seasoned cedar posts, sawed to fit, and securely spiked through spike-holes cast in tho pillars for that purpose. The average weight of each pillar when completed ia eighty-five pounds. The pillari are set four feet in the ground, with their inscription faces tj the north and south, and the earth is well settled and 6t imped about tem. For the wooden posts weli-seasoned logs are selected, and the portion above the ground painted red, to prevent swelling aud shrinking. These posts do very well, but the Indians cut them down for fuel, and nothing but iron will last very long. Where the line crosses lakes, monuments of stone have been built, the bases being in some places eighteen feet under water and the tops projecting eight feet above the lake's surface at high water mark. In forests the line is marked by felling the timber a rod wide and clearing away the underbrush. The work of cutting through the timbered swamps was very great, but it has been well done and the boundary distinctly marked by the Commissioners the whole distance from Michigan to Alaska.' DANGERS OP ATHLETIC TRAINING. Absolute health is attained only by the symmetrical development of all parts of the body. . The man with mus cles of steel and a diseased heart cannot be said to be in good health, and dis eases of the stomach, heart and nervous system are often it may even be said usually produced by that system of de velopment known as training. At a re cent rowing match in Philadelphia, two plucky lads in contesting boats fainted as soon as tho race was over. Their condition, which was apparently gjod, was actually abnormal, and their sys tems gave way because the strain which their muscles met was too great for their vital functions. A similar but more serious calamity occurred at Sag Har bor. A Brooklyn lad who had taken part in a pedestrian contest, when re moved from the track, fell down dead. He had prepared himself for walking and running, and depleted his vital organs to build ud his limbs. When the strain came the impoverished and most im portant part gave way. Tne severe muscular exercise of college athletes has carried off many fine young men by consumption, heart disease and other disorders, directly traceable to the absurd overwork required of their bod ies. Thero is a limit of human endur ance. The limit is reached when the body is impaiied in one quarter to bene fit special organs. The severity of the test by which athlete prizes are won seems designed rather to award to him who is the least healthy, because more unevenly developed, than to the really best man. Boston Journal of Chcm BROTHER GARDNER'S PHILOSOPHY. "I war cleaniu' off de sidewalk de od der day," observed the old man as the meeting opened, " when long cum a man who war achin fur somebody to knock him down. He didn't 'zactly know what to say to begin a fuss, but he finally made out to remark dat if he war Mayor of dis city he'd run all de niggers into de ribber. I felt it my duty to bring de snow-shovel down on top his head, an' he drapped. He stayed drapped for about five minutes, an', when he got up an' pursued his way, his opinyuns seemed to have undergone a great change. I spoke of dis bekaae I want ebery member of dis club to real ize dat de only rule worf libin' by am dat which uses men jiat as dey use you. Try to lib by any oder ride an you will be cheated, swindled, abused an' robbed ebery week in de y'ar. De man who thinks ne has sufficient provocashun to kick you will feel a contempt fur you if you doan' kick back. De man who robs you expects to be dealt with as a robber. Deal wid him as an amgel and he would sneer at you. No man has a right to ex pect better treatment dan he am willin' to bestow, an' few do expect it." Arable land in England has been gradually decreasing in area, the de crease in five years being 442,000 acres, and there has also been a decrease in the number of cattle, a decrease of no fewer than 3,000,000 sheep since 1874, and an appreciable reduction in the number of pigs and horses. Ohio papers are discussing why quail freeze to death.- It is simply because they can't afford to pay 07 a ton fer coaL NUMBER 35;. "PAPA" AND "MAMMA." An early instance which occurs to ma1 in the "Beggar's Opera" (1727),, where Polly Peachum, I think it is,, speaks of her "papa." The modern-. change from " papa" and ' mamma" to- father and mother among the upper classes, which began about thirty years' ago, seems to have been a reaction against a custom which had gradually crept in among psrsons of a lower grade. As soon as common people's children began to say "papa" and "mamma" those of a higher class were taught to say "father" and "mother." It was among my high-church friends that I first noticed this adoption of " father" and "mother." One does not see the connection, but such is the fact. When I was young " papa" and " mamma1'' were universal among what may be called the middle and upper ranks of so-- ciety, and to this day " ladies of a cer tain yi". tifl ' nse the words. King George 1TL, about tile year 1762, ad dressed his mother as " mamma;" so I ' find in the " Grenville Memoirs." But -I do not think that Charles IL, unless -he was speaking in French, ever ad- dressed Henrietta Maria by that endear- ing name, and I feel tolerably sure that the Lady Elizabeth never called Henry V1IL "papa." On the other hand I would observe that " papa" and " mam ma" are fast being supplanted by the oldoriginal "father" and "mother." For ten, or perhaps for twenty, years last past, children in the upper and upper--middle classes have, so far as my obser--vatiozi goes, been taught to say "father" and "mother;" and "papa" and "mam ma," which are word3 of extreme teii--derness to those of my generation, seem now to have sunk into contempt as a "note" of social inferiority. Notes and Queries. SPEECHES LEARNED BY HEART.- I have nsvjr yet precisely understood why it is considered the most vicious vhing that can be tald of a man that he learns his speeches by heart I should have imagined that an audience ought far be grateful to a speaker for taking this- xcuble. To complain of it is to regard- i.peaking like dancing on a tight-rope, and to incumber it with difticulties ia order to derive pleasure from seeing them overcome. In nine cases out of ten a learned spe?ch is better than an' unlearned one. I have always envied the memory of those who, without hesi tation or pause, can deliver a set oration. One of the greatest adepts of this art was Lord Beaconsfk-ld, who, although a :luent and ready impromptu speaker, , often adopted it. More than once he has hauded a speech to the reporters a--meetings, and he has then repeated it without the mistake of a word. I once tried to do this ; some one had explained to me a sys'em of mnemonics, by means of which everything was to be remem bered by locating phrases in different corners of the room. For five minutes I got on beautifully, but, when I had exhausted one corner and turned to the next, my key became confused, and I ignominiously broke down. London Truth. WOVDEN FIFES. Wooden pipes are now being used in' Switzerland to convey the wateis of ' thermal mineral spring between Pfeffcr and Eagaz. . They are constructed ol fir-wood made into staves, and bound to- gether by means of iron hoops. After being carefully tarred both inside and out, they are perfectly water-tight, and possess many advantages over metal piping. They are, of course, much lighter, and are insensible to changes of temperature, while their cost is only about 8 shillings per meter. It is inter esting to note-that the New river water was first brought to London by mean' of wooden pipes formed by boring out tree-trunks and joining them length b.: length.

When the bell was rung for the midday or evening repast she often sent down word that she did not feel inclined to eat, and begged that her' sister would take the head of the table. Sometimes she prolonged her fast for' several days, and only took, when weak from long abstention from food, a cup of broth, or of chocolate, which she swal-' lowed down at once. It did not appear' to her food ; but she turned with repug nance from anything solid. Tho digest-' ive organs thus became paralyzed. ChabiiEs Sumneb, Mr. Z. L.
