Itiirilrn. Alsige psit of lifi-H Imidens are s'lf-iin-foed and wholly li'.ullr a.s. l'csr.i of calami ties which never happ?u, a doleful habit of looking at the worst, a suspicious dispecMion, a jeslons turn of mind tin so aro the tyrants that load us with burdens besvy to bear and needbss lo carry. If we should honestly 01 smine Iho various burdens of our lives, we would b. surprised lofind how many of them are of this character. Not only may wo drop them if wo will, but jiiblico to others demands that we should. A man or woman habitually unhappy is essentially seliish, ami is always a tliorn in the community. There are enough eiosscs and trials In lifo which must be borne, without manufacturing srtillcialand needlesa ones; and llio morn thoroughly we rid our elves of (he lalbr, the more energy and spirit we can hi ing to bear upon tho former. A Town Where No Co. I or Wood I. Wauled. Not a pound of wood or coal, is consumed at Creighton, twenty miles from ritlsburg,'whero the Pittsburg Plato Glaus Company have their plant. jlass factory and residences arc heated and lighted by natural gas. Gas was struck at 1,200 feet in a five inch boro. A torrent of trbal the owners drscriho as "pure nitrogen gas" bursts out with a force of 260 pounds to the square inch, and after throe years is flow ing with ss much energy as over. Tho visitor tees no coal, no wood, no cinders, n ashes, no tmoko. In the furnaces is a, lurid, steady htmt tegulated by clock-work. No grimy stoker sweats his lite away at furnaco doors, but in stead a calm person with a stained glass shield invites you to look at tho glass Ihrougli the epen furnaco doors, where glares a heat suf ficient to doter a modern Bhadrach, Moahach and Abednego. Overhead gas-burners are ablaze in broad day, because it is not worth while to take time to turn (he burners off and on, as there is plenty of gas and to spare. In the residences a thumb-sorew regulates the temperature lo perfection. The Temper. " If people generally knew what an advantage to them it was to be cheerful, thore would be fewer sour faces in the world and Infinitely less ill-temper. A man never gains anything by exhibiting his annoyance by Ills face, much less by bursting into passion. As it is neither manly nor wit to yield like a oulld pettishly to every cross, so it is alike foolish and absurd 10 allow feelings of anger todeprivo us of self tontrol. There novcr was a man in any con troversy who lost his temper who did not eome near losing his. cause in consequonce. K ever a person plays tho gamo of his onomics it is when he is in a passion. Acquaintances shin men of proverbially ill-tr.mpor ; friends . drop away from them ; even wives and cliil dren gradually learn to fear thorn moro than to love. Thousands of men owo their want of success in life to neglecting tho control of their temper. Nor have they tho excuse thai 11 is an infirmity which cannot bo rostrained j for Washington, though naturally of aimst passionate disposition, disciplined himself nnVl he passed for a person utterly Impassive. . No man who neglect his tomror can be happy round. Good temper ia gold, is beyond price. Bad tomper is a enrso to the poBSoesor Md to society. Sandwich Island Houses- A letter from Honolulu to the Boston Tra& script, says 1 The houses of Honolulu are al ways open, day and night, as tho temporaturo is so warm that one haa to sleep ont of floors. as it wore, to got enongh fresh air. They aro luilt mostly of wood, though mai.y of the oldest and more substantial houses aro built of coral atone, a few of lava stone, and many may yet be seen within the limits of Honolulu wade ef grass and occupied by the natives. These native huts or houses are bnllt by mak Ing a framowork of bamboo polos, covered with layers at tho banana tree, the trunk of hleh can bo removed in layers. This, again. is covered with grasa aud trimmed on the comers and ton hv weavinc the liNiBS into i" j a different pattei ns. One opening or door usw lly admits enouah liaht and air for the aver ge native, though some huts are divided oft u""- uuug down on tlia inside, covering tho opening, is the common door. Hats mado of broad 1,-1 uas iliUWovcn or braid, cd, and sometimes flags, form tho carpets, and a pile of from two to ten, and sometimes oven moro, makes the bed 011 which the natives and invited guests sleep. Furniture there is none, the natives always sitting on tho ground with their legs crossed beneath then)., Their kiteh en is outside and is composed 'of a heap of t1.Mn J a nones ana ordinarily niviron pot.,. ."V Ivy Lawns." Ivy Iowns are known to but few among the many wiio tq. Interested! lu 'gardening econ omy. They consist,, as name, implies, of ivy only, aud they etTcr some pjillaradvan tagck in eases whero grass lawnsaro apt to occasion More trouble than they ro worth. An Ivy lawn may bo tfoll thadeun"onc season, and If the primary operstlon cNplanting be properly performed llio lawn will make itself; it will want no cutting, no sweeping, no water ing, no protection from tho birds that eat the grass seeds to-day and to morrow scrotch np the tender plants, as though it was thsir mis sion to make grass lawns impossible. And when made, being, as it were, self-made, an ivy lawn will take care of itself for any num ber of years; but if In need of repair or trim ming, tho knife, the shears, or the spado may be used with tiuskilful hands, and with the least Imaginable cost of time, for it is not an easy thing to kill, or even to seriously injure, a lawn consisting of ivy solely. Such lawns are unfit for games, and indeed should not be trodden on. They will not, therefore, super cede grass in a country garden, which, per haps, is a matter for congratulation; but they will glvo us the most delightful breidth of verduro in thousands nf places whero grass ia moro plague than profit, and, at tho very best, tends to disgraco lather than adorn the posi tion. (en. Lee on I'rnnkueas. A letter of Gen. Lie to bis sou,' written in 1SG2. has Just been given to tho public, in which he discourses on the value of frankness 1 I am Jnst in the act of leaving home for New Mexico. My flue old rcgiimnt has been or dered to that distant region, ami I must hasto i to sco that they aro properly taken care of. I have but little to add in reply lo your loiters of March 2, 27 ond 2S. Your letlem breathed a true Ktsiit of frankness; they have already given myself and your mother great pleasure. You must study to be frank with the world; fraidiiii ss is the child of honesty and eniicign. Say what you ni- iui to do on every occasion, nod take it for granted you mean to do right. If 11 friend asks a favor you should grant it if it is reasonable; if not, 1,11 him plainly why you cannot; you will wrong him and yourself by equivocation of any kind. Never d a wrong thing lo make a friend or tn keep one; tho man who requires yon to do so is dearly bought at a sacrifice. Deal kindly but firmly w ith all your elas-M .ten; yon w ill find it the policy which wean nest. Above all, do not appear to others what yon aro not. If you have any fault to find with any one, lei! him, not others, of what you complain; there is no more dangerous experiment than that of 1111 dei taking lo lie one thing before a man's faeu and another behind bis back. Wo should live, act and say nothing to tho Injury of any one. H is not only beat sa a matter of principle, but it is tho path to pcaco and honor.
