If she fancies a young man, she makes whnt is technically called the first banter. This is done by slyly squeezing the hand, or gently touching his foot at the camp fire. If a man thould venture upon any cf these little prelimirariis,1 without bo ng fcure of a recipiocul par-1 tialiy, the indignant maid would imme diately assail him with a stick, zni this would be the signal for a general assault by all the f quaw.-? around on the presum ing lover, who, unless I13 flvd, would he beaten without mercy. Thu?, even in this rude shajie, does woman pity the coquette. The young squaw who screams the loi:el:st and shows the most resent ment at these unwarrantable hWerties of an ardent lover, is set down as the Diana of her tribj," As Old Man s Sbceet -An Italian Bishopstruggled through greal d.fflcul ties without repining, and met with much opjosiiion without even betraying the least impatience. An intimate friend of Iris, who highly admired those virtues whbh he thought impossible to imitate, one day asked the bishop if he could communicate his Fecret of being always eas y ? 44 Yes, ' replied the old man, " I can teach my secret with great facility ; it consists of nothing mure than making a right tike of uiy eyes " His friend b-gged him to explain him ov?I ? 4 Most willingly,"returned the Bishop; 4 m whatever state I am, I first ol all i<x>k up to heaven, and remember that my principal business is to get there I then lor.v down on thr earth. and cail to mind how small a space I shall occupy in i t wuen I come to be interrci. I then look abroad on the world, and observo what multitudes there are in all respects more unhappy than myseif. Thus I .earn where true happiness is placed where all our cares must end. and bow vi ry .ittle reason I have to repine or complain. A CiiiLD s ?T*PAinr.-A child's eyes, those clear wells of undefiled thought wha. on earth can be more beautiful! rud of hope, low, and curiosity, ther meet your own. I n prayer how earnest, in py how sparkling, in sympathy how tender.
