The fallowing particulars as to the methods ot securing divorces in different countries are interesting : faamese The first wife may be divorced, not sold, as tbe others may be. She may then claim tbe (first, third and Mrth child, and the alternate children are yielded to the husband. Arctic region When a man desires a divorce be leaves the hause in anger and does not re turn for several days. Tbe wife understands the bint, packs ber clothes and leaves. Tartar The husband may put away his part tier aud' seek another when it pleases titni, and the wife mav do the same. It she be ill-treated she complains to the magistrate, who, attended by the principal people, accompanies her to the house and pronounces a formal divorce. Chinese Divorces are allowed in all cases of criminality, mutual dislikes, jealousy, incom patibility of temper, or too much loquaciiy on tli') part of the wife. The husband cannot sell bis wife nntil she leaves him and becomes a slave to him by action of the law for desertion. A son is bound to divorce his wife if she dis pleases bis parents. Javans If tbe wife be dissatisfied she can ob tain a dirnrce bv navinff a certain sum. Thibetans Divorces aref seldom allowed un less with the ennent of both parlies neither of whom can afterward re-marry. Moors if the wife does not become the moth er of a boy, she may be divorced with tne con sent of the tribe, and she can marry again. Abyssinians No form of marriage is neces sary. The connection may be dissolved and renewed as often as the parties think proper. Siberians If tbe man be dissatistied with the most trifling acta cf his wife, be tears her cap or veil trom her head, auu.tms constitutes a ui vorce. Coreans The husband can divorce his wife, and leave her the charge of maintaining the children ; if she proves unfaithful he can put her to death. Durse and Turkoman Among these people, if a wife asks her husband's permission to go nut. and if he aavs 'an." without adding "but come back again," she is divorced. Though both parties desire It, tbey cannot live together without Deine remarried. Cochin-Chinese If the parties choose tosep. arate. tbev break a pair of chop-sticks or a cop per coin in the presence of witnesses by which action tue union is oissoivea. lue uutuanu must restore to the wife tht property belonging to her prior to her marriage. American Indians Amonir some tribes the pieces of sticks given to tbe witnesies of tbe marriage are burnt as a sign af divorce. Usual ly new connections are rormea witaoui me oia ones beimr dissolved. A man never divorces bis wife if she has borne him soul. Leeds Mercury. The Memory of the Ineas. Quito Cor. Inter Ocean. j The devotion of the Indians to the memory of their king wko was strangled 330 years ago is very touching. When "tbe last of the Incas " tell he left his people in perpetual mourning, and tbe women wear nothing but black to-day. It is a pathetic custom of the race not to show upon their costumes tbe slightest hint of color. Over a short black skirt tbey wear a sort of mantle, which resembles in its appearance, as well as in Its use, tbe "manta" that worn by tbe ladies of Peru, and tbe "mantilla' of Spain. It Is drawn over their foreheads and across the chin and pinned between the shoulders. Tba somber costume gives them a nun-like appearance, which is heightened by tba stealthy, silent way in which they dart through the streets. The cloth is woven on their own native looms of, the wool of the llama and tbe vicunasand is a sort, fine texture. While the Indians are tinder tbe despotic rule of the priests and have accepted the Catho lic religion, 3- years of submission has not en tirely divorced them from tbe ancient rites the practiced under their original civilisation. Several times a year they have feaits or celebra tions to commemorate soma event in the Inca history, and like the Attect in Mexico, tbey still cliag to a tope that future ares may re store the dynasty under which their fathers tved, and destroy tbe hated Spaniards.

Besides containing the two hun dred and three adulterations the Chinese philan thropist puts up for the outside barbarian. It is almost always pervaded by copper dust, from the dirty curing pans of the growers. Any man who drinks green tea regularly is bound to havo a copper plated stomach.

Iron may be good for tbe blood, but mixed with tea it is anathema maranatha. Drink your tea plain. (And here I know I shall raise up a cloud of enemies). Don't add milk nor sugar. Tea brokers and tea tasters never do ; epicures never do ; the Chinese never do. Milk contains fibrin, albnmen or some other stuff, and tea a delicate amount of tannin. Mixing the two makes the liquid turbid. This turbidity, if I remember the Cyclopedia aright, is tannate of fibrin or leather.

This she re fused to do, and said if ht did not return and keep bis part of the agreement the wonld con sider tbe engagement off. Tbe young man pre ferred to trust to lack In regard to the engage ment to being considered a coward in running away from bis first battle, and remained on the field. His lady love, however, was to piqued at the refusal that the persisted in her rejection of his suit and married another man. Inspired with the feeling of the dosertlon, the rejected wrote the song whisk, has had tuch a wide run. He not only wrote the tong but be remained true to his first love, and for tome time, the etorv goes, be has been living here with his mother. Not long ago, however, bit love't husband died, and since that time he has re newed the acquaintance of tho widow, who, though older than when be went to tbe war, is still charming.

Every farmer Is iuppos- to know 11 about baying 1 bat as we never knew ont that was not ready to ask questions tometlmes during tie season, wa will give a few hints, hoping tbey may touch some cases.

If bay has to stand out through a spell ot dull cloudy weather, take some time when tbe sun shines and build tbe bunches over by patting tha lock on the ground and then the next and let it be as light as possible, and it will dry off fastot and still be ready for a rain.

Having learned that Sidebar Skinner, of tha Lime Kiln club, was contemplating matrimony, Brother Gardner at tbe last meeting of that time honored Institution called tbe culprit up before him and thus addressed him: "Glttln' mar'd has Its werry serious sido. Fur Instance, am de gal gwlne to tnur'y you bekase she loves you or to spite her folks bekase dey kept her away from de skat'n rink ? Am you gwlne to mar'y de gal fur love or bekase ber father has tome wealth which you hope he'll shell out fur your benefit ? "Lovo am a powerful emoshun, Brudder Skinner, but lova wldout p?rk and 'tatcrs to keep It goln' am like de froth on de top of soda water. "Don't mistake your sentiments. If you am sartin dat you love, go ahead. If It am only lollypop, hire out as a deck hand on a steam boat fur a week, an' It will go away. I her known couples ez seemed to be dyin' of love. Delr silly ackshuns made 'em de lafllu' stock of a hull nayburbnod. Dey seemed to dote and doto, but it didn't last. Arter a couple of y'ars de husband war' a home grumbler an' tyrant, an' de wife a gad-about an' a Bcold. What dey s'posed was love war' only lollypop. "Doan' marry a gal hopin' dat her father will set you up in de barber blzness. Most fadder-in-laws not only want all dey bev got, but am wlllin' to struggle fur another $20,000. 'Dnan' flitter yourselves dat all vou hev got to do am to hug in tie house an' all ober de gnte. You'll be hungry fur corn beef an' bak ed bean.; your cloze will w'or out: your flour an' butter will waste away an' a bill fur two months' rent will send a chill up yer back. "Think- of dese things, Brudder Skinner. You kin get a wife in aoout five minutes, but it takes five y'ars to get s net -of some of 'em. Expeck about one day's sunshine fur a week of cloudy weather.

It may be asked, what suggested the idea that the sun may be blue rather than any other color ? My own attention was first di rected this way many years ago, when meas uring the heat and light from different parts of the sun's disk. It is known that the sun has an atmosphere of Its own, which tempers its heat, and by cutting off certain radiations and not others, produces the spectral lines we are all familiar with. These lines we customa ry study in connection with the absorbingva pors of sodium, iron and so forth, which pro duce them ; but my own attention was particu larly given to the regions of absorption, or to the color it caused ; and I found that the sun's body must bo deeply bluish, and that it would shed blue light except for this apparently col orless atmosphere which really plays the part of a reddish vail, letting a little of tbe blue ap pear on the center of tin sun's disk whore it is tbe thinnest, and staining tbe edge red, so that to delicate tests the center of the sun is a pale aquamarine and its edge a garnet. The effect I found to be so inportant that it this all but invisible solar atmosphere was diminished by but a third part tbe temperature of the British islands would rise above that of the Torrid zone; and this directed my attention to the great practical importance of studying the ac tion of our own terrestrial atmosphere on the sun, and tbe antecedent probability that our own air was also and independently making the really blue sun into an apparently white one. f Science. Apple-red Is the name of a new shade In net veiling. It Is soft and pretty, and throws a be coming shade on the complexion. ' Embroidered silk gloves are the latest. The white ones are particularly pretty and very much worn. Yachting dresses made of cream flannel, with tucked skirts and blouse waists slashed with red or yellow are just tne thing. Sleeves are made less tight and plain than hitherto ; for thin wash-dresses they frequently come only as far as the elbow, finished with a fall of lace. For tennis some charming gowns are made of cream woolen material with jerseys to match, the latter being embroidered in gay colors. "Hough on Rata.'
