To Cairo eity one hot afleneon, In the mid summer, came dji anchorite, Pale, shrunk as aay eorpeeibin, lean, and blanched. I From dwelling In the tombsdeep from the light t laii, gaunt, ana wan acrosittie desert sand He 1 1 roil e j trampling on avainei by his side, Licking bis hands, two dapjud panthers pueod, With lolling tongues, and dirk and tawuy hid. The gilJod domes of Cairo laied and shone, Tho minarets arose like lonj keen spears i Planted around a sleeping A-ab's tent. The Saint's attendants prhied their spotted esrs When tbe Muoisib, with hi) druuing cry, i Summoned to prayers, and frightened vultures screamed, ' I Swooping from the gilt roof liat glittored la (he ky. And the tall parapet that o'er 't gleainod. j The hermit came to where the traders sat, j Grave turbanod men, weighing out heaps of - pearls, Around a siilashlnir fountain . wafts T BVf'i " Rose to the curtained roof in wreathing cfls, And Abyssinian slaves, wltn swora ana Isw, n atcbed at the doorway, wbilo a durvint danced In giddy circles, chanting Allah's naml With long lean arms outstretched andeyes entranoed. 1 St. Vitus spurned the gold and pearls awiy, And struck tbe Dervlbb silent with a llSr That loosened half bis teeth (the infidel I, And tossed the consors Borcely to aud frdt Then sang, defiant of the angry men. ( How long, O Lord, how long I and raised II eyes To the biith Heaven, praying God to semi Some proof to them from out those buruiij skies. And when their knives flew out, and eunisln ran With steel and bowstring, swift to choke am bleed, The Saint drew forth from underneath hisrobe A Nubian flute, carved from a yellow reel He put it to bis liite, and inusio rose, I So wild and wayward that, on either haul, Straightway, perforoe, the turbaned men kgan To whirl and circle like the wind-tossed siud. i And so the Saint passod on, until he reached A mosque, with many domes and cupolas, And roof bung thick with lamps and oetruh eggs, And round the walls a belt of crescent stars. Towards tbe Mecca niche the worshippers Bent altogether in a turbans, row; So, seeing this idolatry, the Sasnt Struck the chief-leader, twice a sturdy blow. Then they howled alt at once, and many flo, , With sabres drawn, uiion tbe holy man, To toss liim to tbe dogs. Tbo pauthurs now Kept them at bay, nntil tbe taint began Upon his fluto to breathe his mngle tune, Such as the serpent charmers use to charm The san 1-asps forth, aud straightway priests and flock Began to circle round j and froe from harm, He elided forth unto the Caliph's house, Where in divan he and the Visier were, Oir, with Uta oouncil of the rich and wise, And all tlie MulluU w tto bis secret share. here he raised up the crucifix on high, Spat on the Koran, cursed Muhammod's name, Took tbo proud Caliph's turban from his head, Aud threw it to his pautbers. I ire and Dame Broke forth around him, as when in a mine The candle comes ungardod, swords flashed out By twenties, and from inner court to court Ran the alarm, the clamour and the shout. The Saint, unuioied, drew forth bismjgie flute (It was the greatest miracle of all), And, lo ! tho soldiers, oounsullors, and slaves Swept dancing, fever stricken, round the hall. Round went the Caliph wltk his shaven head, Rouud went the Yincr, raging as be danced. Round went tbe archers, aud tbe sable crew ore rounu in cucies, every one eniranceci .... 1 I-. .ii ;-. .! jl,7 ' Dowu Uropt each sword, down dropped each bow uaucui.. ml then tbe Saint ones more into the street Glided unhurt, and sought the market place. . W bero dales rouea lonn iroin onsaeui, nnu iu ngs Were purple ripe, and every swarthy faee Wa. tn, I wiLh wranfflinori aud he cursed 1 abound Loud iu the mid.it , and set up there bis cross, er the mosjue gale, ani wauea aioua a iwaim, Let God arise, and all His foos confound. But tho fierce rabble hissed, and throwing stones, Shouted, "Slay, slay too wretch !" and "Kill, kill, kill !" And some seisod palm tree stares and jaggod shards ; In every eye there was a murderous will, ntil the Saint drew forth again bts tiuie, And all tbe people drove to the mad dance, With nodding Loads and never wearying I eel, And leaden eyes fixed in a mngio trance. A nd so he left them dancing : one by one hey fell in swoons and fevers, worn and spent, hen the stern anchorite took his maglo flute. And broke it o'er his knee, and homeward went, ossing the useless tube, now split and rent, Upon the sand then through the desert gflte Passed, with his panthers ever hiin besido t And raised bis hands to heaven, and shouted forth, Amen aineu' God's, name be glorified !" (From the Illustrated News The Man who Struck Himself. BY T. 8. ART1ICE. Jnson EUcr boloncrod to that rather largo class of person who find pleas ure in tho suffering or misfortunes of thoir fellow men. This is stating tho caso rather broadly, and wo do not, in the least, doubt that Jason, should ho over chanco to discover this introduc tion of himself to tho public, will re ject our classification, so far as ho is onccrneu. YV e make it understand- ingly, howovcr. The fault wo have indicated is usually tho companion of another. Tho man who fools pleasure in tho illfortune of hi neighbor' Mill hardly hesitate to intlict an injury, if it can bo done with impunity. Men of tho class to whom Jason Elder belonged rarely passed far on their life journey without misunder standing with some of thoir fellow passengers.- Of courso thoy aro al ways in tho right, and their fellow passengers in the wrong. And as they aro tho injured and the oppressed, it is the most natural thing in tho world for them to fool indignant, and rjuito as natural to retaliate, giving blow for blow. ".Tho manwhowron8mo, I neither forgive nor forget." This was ono of Jason Elder's hayings, and a very bad saying wo cannot help declaring it to boparticularly so in Jason's case, for ho quito lived up to lus principles. Of courso Judgment as to wrong was always rendered by himpolf, and on evidence wholly exparte. If ho bo liovod that anothor meant to do him wrong and lie could believe, some times, on very slight ovideuco an evil purpose was as quickly born in his mind as if positivo tostimony wcro be fore his eyes. In fact, Jason Elder was a very bad sort of a man, and often very troub lesome to thoso who had any dealings with him. Among thoso who wcro favored with the hearty dislike of Elder, was a master inechanio in n small way, named Martin Lee, who, by industry and economy, had accumulated enough to buy himself a houso ,of moderato size, as a homo for his family. Elder also owned a houso in tho same neigh borhood. Theso houses wcro built on a pieco of ground that originally bo longed to the samo estato. Mr. Loe was a very upright man i . t. i . i' 1 1 . . i ujv ui.riiib uuu inuepoimen. 10 navo much intercourse with a man likoElder and not mortally offend him. Ho had so offended him, and tho offence was neither forgotten nor forgiven. In more than one instance las enemy naa sought to do mm injury ; but tho poisonoa arrows, uung lrom his bow, liad Hown harmlessly by him. Ono day, whilo in conversation with ono of thoso idle gossiping individuals, who givo nioro attention to othor peo ple's business than they do to their own, the lattor said, in responding to somo Hi-naturod remark uttered against Mr. Loo. " I learned a fact yesterday that may be you would liko "About that Loo?" catrorly inquired ttidor. " Yoa-ur, Z intiflit bettor say, aDOut the ground on which ho has built that snug little houso." " Indood ! Our gentleman was all alivo now and commenced rubbing his hands in delichted expectation. " W hat about tho ground ( " litle defective," was the laconio answer. "No!" " Tact. Had it from old Larkin : and I rather think ho ought to know something about it." "Well, that is news! Got a bad titled, eh ? I wonder who's on tho hip now, Mr. Martin Loo?" "13ut surely, Mr. Elder," said his informant, " you will not tako advan tage of this information to injure our friend Lee?" Won't I, indeed ; wait and sco. If I don't deal him a staggering blow, my name is not Jason Elder that's all. I always said I'd bide ray timo. Ha! Iir! A flaw in his title., lint that's just his wuy of doing business. I'd liko to seo any ono pick a flaw in mine." Truo to the evil'purposo declared, Elder took the first opportunity to search out tho party to whom the property owned by Loo would rovert, in caso a defect really did exist in hi3 title, and communicatod the lact al leged. This individual whose name was Karl, seemed at urst incredulous; but when Larkin was mentioned as authority, ho scorned to fool quito an interest in tho matter. " I am really indebted to you," ho said, with a bland Kmilej "should it provo true that there is a defect, 1 shall havo quito a windfall ; and it could not havo reached mo in better timo. I will havo tho matter investi gated at once." "lhat blow will tell hard surely, havo plantod it below tho fifth rib," said Elder to linnwlf in n. f .-.! uxiutailwin. naha llt tUo iTcenco of Mr. Earl. Through much self-denial nnd hard labor, continued through many years, had Mr. Loo been ablo to provido a modest homestead for his family. He had been the more unxious to accom plish this from tho fact that declining health warned him of tho approach of a day how spoodily it might ar rive, ho knew not, when his beloved ones who leaned on him so confiding ly, would have none to caro for them. If he could securo a home, into which they might cluster together, ho felt that much would bo gainod. And this he had accomplished ; but tho ef fort cost too dearly. He had taxed his physical system to an extent that produced a serious reaction; and, though ho socurod a dwolling for his family, ho permanently woakened his constitution. One day, in making a sudden effort, he ruptured a blood vessel, and was taken home in a dangerous condition. This was the very day that J ason Elder mado tho unfortunato discovery of a defect in tho titlo of his property. Little dreamed he as with death knocking at tho door, ho found conso lation in the thought that his family, even if ho wero taken from them, would not bo left without a home ; that at the very time, thero was a movement to deprive them of their little patrimony. And well for him was it that tho veil of ignorance was before his eyes ; for, had ho known of the threatened dangor, tho knowledge would surely havo cost him his'life. On the day following, a gentleman called at tho house of Mr. Loe, to notify him that procoodings wore about boing instituted for tho purposo of testing tho validity of his titlo ; but learning that he was dangoroufely ill, ho went away without leaving any word as to tho purposo of his busi- liOfiS. In tho meantime, Elder, who had not heard oi Mr. Lee's illness was awaiting, with somo interest, to seo the ultiuiato effect of the blow ho had struck. Thero were times when in a measure, he reponted of what ho had dono. 13ut tho repontanco was not very deep, and his ill will towards Mr. Leo soon obliterated all traces thereof. On tho third day, Elder received a brief uoto from Mr. Eurl, dosiring him to call at his office, ns ho wishod to soo him on particular business. Thero was something in this noto that effocted Mr. Eldor unpleasantly. What it was, howevor, ho could not discover, although ho read it over and over again, at least half a dozen times. " I wonder what he wants with mo?" ho said uneasily, as ho started, off promptly to oboy tho summons. . "Ah, Mr. Elder! I'm glad to see you." Mr. Earl smiled, and ho of fered his hand. Hut there was some thing wrong in tho smile, and no heart whatever in the prcsrmro of his hand. " I've been investigating that mat tor that you brought to my notice," said Mr. Earl, and his countenanco assumed a grave aspect. "Ah! Have you? Well, sir, did you not find it as I said?" " Thero is a flaw, certainly, and a very sorious one." " I was sure of it from what Ijarkin said, He's never at fault in matters of this kind." " You aimed a heavy blow at Mr. J.oe, my friend," rai l Mr, Earl. Thero was a quick change in his manner, tollowed by a pause. Then he added: " But it passod him unharmed and struc k another !" ' " WTho ?" eagerly inquired Eldor. "Yourself!" was tho startling re sponso. " Me I I do not understand v-ou Earl I V The countenance of Juson Elder had bocomo suddonly ovorspread with alarm. " Mr. Ijco's titlo is porfoctly good." "it is r ' " Yes. But yours is defoctivo I" " Impossible ! " exclaimed Elder turning pale. " Not at all. Mr. Larkin is rarely at fault in matters of this kind. He knew thero was a flaw somewhero in the property that onco bolonged to my uneio's estate, but erred in this ia- Biance. ur. JjOO is suie, out your titlo Is not worth a Conner. I am much obliged to you for hunting up this windfall for mo 1 should hardly havo como aeross it myself; and in consideration theroof, will deal with you as leniently ns possible. Uf course, 1 do not exiioct you to take my word in regard to the flaw. Its cxistonco however, will soon bo demonstrated. You had better seo 3ou lawyer, nnd ask him to call on me. In tho meantime, I will say that for various reasons I am ready to compromise, l aon t wish to encoun ter tho vexations, delays and expenco of legal proceedings ; and therefore, if you aro disposecf-to meet mo amica bly. I will not be too exacting. In a word, then, I have in my own mind the sum for which I will executo a quit claim to the property. The sum is five hundred dollars." Jason Elder groaned aloud. "If m V rlnim nn tlio r.jj. good ana i Know it to do, rcsumoa Air. Earl" I can recover three times that sum. If you compromiso I will act in a spirit of great moderation, but if you compel me to resort to law, I will tako all the law awards." Poor Jason Eldor I Tho blow was a hoavy ono and staggered him. A careful examination by his 'lawyer only proved tho assertion of Mr. Earl. His titlo to tho property was not worth a dollar. Glad onough was ho to ac cent tho proffered compromise, though at tho cloar loss of over five hundred dollars ! Well for Mr. Loo was it, that tho blow aimod with such bitter maligni ty, did not executo tho will of him by whom it was given. The consequence would, to all human foresight, have provod fatal. Not until ho was sulli ciently recovered from his dangerous illnosa to bo out again, did ho learn ha tt-H -1 luoatvnitni, uuu iiorr it had recoiled upon tho head of his enemy. His pointed answer was : "Ho digged a pit for another, and himself fell into it." Tho declaration of Elder, mado to moro than ono, that he had struck Mr. 1-ieo a heavy blow, was remem bered in connection with his serious loss from a defect iu his title ; and for a long time afterwards, ho was 8j)oken of familiarly among those who know him, as tho " man who struck him self." A broad illustration, of w hat is tak ing placo daily, in hundreds of in stances, around us. Tho ovil that is meditated against others, usually comes back, iu somo form, upon those who soek to do their neighbors a wrong. In this matter there is a law of compensation which acts with un erring certainty. 'The blow that i3 struck in malico at another, may not seom to rebound. But, as surely as it is given, will its power to do harm remain unspent, until tho circlo cf consoquenco is completed. Illegality of tho Soldiors' Law. Voting Itopublican Tostimony. We publish tho following extracts from tho speech of the Hon. W. Warner, of Wayne County, dolivcred in the Houso of Eeproscntativcs, of tho Legislature of this state on tho 28th day of January last. It will be remembered that Mr. Warner, is a republican: It seems that a while ' provious to tho meeting of this Legislature last winter, Mr. Blair had occasion to ex press his views deliberately, as to tho constitutionality and expediency of this samo project . with regard to sol diers voting, when away from their placo of rcsidenco ; nnd in doing so, ho mado uso of theso words, namely : " The legislature cannot authorize a citi tcn to rote in any place, except in the town thip or icard tclierehe reti'des." Ho con tinued: "Tho langungo of Art. 7, Boc. 1, is a follows: " But no citi zen or inhabitant shall bo an elector or ontitled to vote at an election, un less he shnll bo above tho ago of twenty-ono years, and lias resided iu this Stato threo months, and in the town ship or ward in which he ojfert to vote, ton days next preceding such eloclion," After making this quotation, ho add ed . " think (hit t' deciiire." Such was tho deliberate opinion of Mr. Blair, deliberately stated, as to tho constitutionality of this measure, but a short timo boforo tho meeting of this Legislature last wintor. What he then stated as to the expediency of it, we shall . tako due notico of in its propor placo. But-ISir, it would seem from np- oarnnees that Mr. Blair has changed lis mind. Ho then said that "iho Legislature cannot authorizo a citizen to voto in any placo except in tho township or ward whero ho resides ;" and ho adduced the wordt of the Con tlitution, article, section, and clauso, to support what he said. But ho now advances a directly contrary- opinion, and brings forward c ertain novel theo riet of construction to back it not tho plain words of tho Constitution, taken in their natural and ordinary import, but rather certain hitherto- vnknoicn th-orm ff construction. Now, Sir, both of theso antagonist ical -opinions cannot be correct. If a udgo gives two directly opposite opin ions on exactly the samo set cf facts, and under thosame law, both cannot bo good. In ono or the other, . ho must bo either mistaken or dishonest. If a witness testifies to ono set of facts, at one hearing of a caso, and then to a directly opposlto set of facts, at an other hearing of tho very samo caso, both of his statements, of course, can not be true ; and not only so, you will of necessity bo led to query whether he, at bottom, haa any truth in him at all whether ho really has either mor al or mental integrity in his head or heart. But, Mr. Chairman, let mo here make this inquiry : Aro wo to infor from ihcQjiirviUnsr disclosures that JUT. JJlail' JM a.'t smilly Jfl.Lin. lm- 4-. integrity ns this would indicato, leav ing moral integrity out of the ques tion ; that ho is not true to his convic tions ; that his mind is not truo to it self; that it is so made up, as not to bo ablo to clearlv soo and duly niwro- ciato the forco of fundamental princi ples, or ndhoro to them against temp tations from without, or tho strivings of personal ambition from within? Or are we to infer that air. Blair has two opinions as to the constitu tionality of this measure, ono being his opinion us a lawyer, and tho other his opinion as a politician, scheming for future promotion, and that ho now advancos ouo and now tho other, as shall best servo his purpose? We daily recognize tho fact that a man may and should chango his mind, whon there is a good reason for it. Wo recognize the fact, too, that ho may diller from himself nt dilleront " Wv ulw, vii ma .HUT I1UI1U, rocognizo the fact that principles do not chango ; and that this provision of uiu vvuau.uuuu 13 uun juni nut, 11. was when Mr. Blair pronounced it to bo decisivo against a measure liko tho ono under consideration. We also rocognizo the further fact, that men sometimes have strong motives for changing thoir opinions, when they have no good reason for it ; and in such casos they may assign for reasons what havo tho form thereof, but not tho power. How good Mr. Blair's reasons aro for his new opinion, wo havo seen a littlo already, and shall seo more fully a little further on. In the meantime, Air. Chairman, I must confess that 1 am reminded hero of tho habits of a certain money and 6tock broker, a native of France, and a person of noto in his way, who re sided in Boston. You go into his of fice aud say to him : " Mr. , how is VYrrrij no wouict reply. "JDo you wish to buy, or do you wish to soli?" You answer: "Buy." He continues : "" Well, the Board closed to-day at $90, with an evident tenden cy upward. I will sell nt $00,50." But if you say to him : " I wish to sell," then, ho would answer : "Well, the Board closed to-dny at $90, with an evident tendency downward. I will give you $89,50." But let me again inquiro of any who may know, if it bo indeed truo that Mr. Blair, whom tho most of us havo hitherto believed to bo a man of fair intentions, has at length bocomo so fur perfected in tho arts of the modern politician as to bo capablo of saying to any whom it may concerns " If you . must and will know tho truo intent and mean ing of tho Constitution, relativo to this measure, I toll you as a hwger, that tho Legislature cannot authorizo a citizen to voto in any placo, nxcerit in tho township or ward where ho re sides ;" but if you aro disposed to ac commodate, or sell yourself to our sido, that is, to tny party, within tho (arty, I then tell you as a politician, olieving that " the ond justifies the moans," and as ono lound to tcin, Con stitution or no Constitution, that tho legal validity of this measuro " need not bo doubted?" Is this tho ultimate object of his recommendation of this measure? If yea, then ho and his adherents might well pray, in tho lan guago of Burns : " 0 wad somo Pow'r tlio giAie gie ns Tj see uursoW as othors seo us ! It wad frao inouie a blunder free us, Au' looli.tli notion." Sir, we should lo led to smile at this extremely unsightly spectacle wero thero not a kind of menu melancholy intermingled which turns ridicule into mourning. But still tho position re mains in fujl integrity and force, that tho exposition I have offered sjigrees with, and is supported by tlio views of the members ot tho legal profession, who lived in tho State at tho timo tho Constitution was adopted, and ulso of thoso who camo hero or entered tho rofession toon thereafter, which views mvo universally prevailed until a clique hit upon this measuro to pre serve party supremacy and especially personal supremacy in the parti. 9 e C. Another consideration showing the inexpediency of passing this meas uro is to bo found in tho tendency it would havo to uncenliy und demor alize tho public mind. 1. In relation to count itationol Uiw: -For tho Const if ut ion, as wo have seen, prescribes tho boundaries of legisla tive and judicial authority, in nhort, tho organization, the powers, and du ties of all tho various departments, and organs, w hich, in tho aggregate, form tho complox machino of govern ment. It also carefully asserts and defines thoso individual rights, which not oven tlio law-making power, not even tho pooplo themselves, shall bo permitted to infringe. Consequently, our lives, our liberties, our property, our institutions, our social orders our security, our peaco, our welfare, as individuals and as a people, nil rest on constitutional law. And just po far as this is broken down, or set nt naught, or eluded, just to that oxtont all is lost. Fidelity, therefore, to con stitutional law, is tho first duty of ev ery individual in his capacity ns a citizen ; and if thi bo so with the pri vate citizen, how emphatically truo is i., in case of Jegi;;..itrs, and, in fact, all public officers. For our perpetnK ty and stability as freo States depend much moro on tho spirit of obedience to law among the leading and influen tial classes, than on jails, forts and armies. And how is it, that "tho British Constitution and tho English nation havo outlived its feudalism, its despotism and its barbarism, of a thousand years, and now . promises a thousand years more of constitutional froodom?" It is chiefly owing to the spirit of obedienco to law, manifested in its courts, and by its ruling and in fluential classes. And that man is a very imperfect student of history and of human na ture, who has failed to learn this im portant lesson, namely : That no state of mind can be more pregnant with evil than that, which can know inxrlv violato nr aluln tliAPnefitn.-. ... und, at the samo timo, seek to oxcuse or justify it by artifices, by ingenious theories, by cunning speculations, by specious arguments, derived from no tions of mere policy. Wlierovcr this state of mind exists, and has sway, it will never bo wanting in objects of parmount importance, in extremely exigent occasions, such as scorn to it to bo strongly characterized by that kind of necessity, which now calls for tho exorcise of doubtful powers and now knows no law whatover. In this way, one part after another of the Constitution is set at naught, till at length it is striped of its force, and I either overthrown, or treated as in operative and void : Just as the Su premo Court of Now York, by Judge Bronson in Oakley r Aspinwall, 3 corns. 547. 5G8. says : " If tho Leg islature or tho courts may tako that office upon thcmselvos, (of supplying a-.4.Awtvi otiitmuinfc wie constitu tion) or if, under color of construc- t ion, or upon any other specious ground, tho' may depart from that which is plainly doclared, the. pcoplo may well despair of over being ablo to set a boundary to tho powers of the gov ernmout. Written Constitutions will bo worso than useless." Tho judge continues : " Believing, as I do, that tho success of freo insti tutions depends on a rigid adherence to tho fundamental law, I havo never yielded to considerations of expedien cy in expounding it. Thero is always somo plausible reason for tho latitu dinarain constructions which aro ro sorted to for the purposo of acquiring power 6ome evil to bo avoided, or somo good to bo attainod, by pushing tho powers of the government beyond their legitimato bouudary. It is by yielding to such influences that Con stitutions are gradually undermined uuuiij utetuirun if. ' JHy rule lias ever boon to follow the fundamental law, as it is written, rogardless of con- , sequences. If tho law deos not work well, tho peoplo can amend it ; and in conveniences can be borne long enough to await that process. But if the Legislature or tho courts undertake to euro defects by forced and unnatural constructions, they inflict a wound upon tho Constitution which nothing can heal. One step taken by tho Leg islature or tho judiciary in enlarging tho powors of the government, opens tho door for another, which will bo suro to follow ; and so the process goes on, until all respect for the fun damental law is lost, and tlte powers of tlte government are just xchat those in au thority please to call thtm." Preservation of tho Teeth. Horace Walpole says (" Letters," vol. iii. p. 27G): " Use a littlo bit of alum twice or thrico in a week, no biggerthan half your nail,till it is has all dissolved in your mouth, and then spit it out This has fortified my toeth, so that they are as strong as -tho pon of Junius. I learned it of Mrs. Grosvcnor, who had not a spock in her toeth till her death." Do not let your brushes bo too hard, as they aro likely to irritate the gums and in juro tho enamel. Avoid too froquont uso of tootli powder, and be very cau tious what kind you buy, as many aro preparod with destructive acids. Thoso who brush their teeth carefully and thoroughly with tepid water and a soft brush (cold water should never bo used, for it chills and injures the nerves) have no occasion to uso pow der. Should any little incrustation (tartar) appear on tho sides or at the back of tho tooth, w hich illness and very often tho constant eating of sweetmeats, fruit, ffnd made dishes containing acids will cause, put a lit tlo magnesia on your brush, and after two or three applications it will ro move it. Whilo treating on the caro . of tho teeth, w hich is a subject of the highest imporlanco to thoeo who havo young familios, and in fuct every ono who wi.ihes to prcservo them, 1 beg to remind my readers that as the pe riod generally occupied by sleep is cal culated to bo about (at least) six hours out of tho twenty-four, it would great ly promote tho healthful maintenance of the priceless pout Is whoso loss or decay so greatly influences our ap poaranco and our comfort, if wo wero to establish a habit of carefully clean ing them with a soft brush before go ing to boil. Tho small particles of food clogging tho gums impede circu lation, generato tartar and caries, nnd effect tho breath. Think of anjamat gamation of cheese, flesh, sweetmeats, fruit, etc., in a statoof decomposition, remaining wedged between our teeth for fix or seven hours ; yet how few ever take tho troublo to attend to this, most ocrtain cause of toothache, dis- ' coloration, and decay, entailing tho miseries of scaling, plugging, extrac tion, nnd tho crowning horror false teeth! 6Wy' Lady's Book.
