It s all very easy to talk about economizing but where is one to begin ' You are not at all extravagant neither um I I'm <ure there's no waj*.-valve from whitrh our little income can leak out. and yet it is impossible to lav a*i le any m>ney 1 can't amount tor it at all' Thus spoke Charles Walters, a young lawyer, who resides in a cosy little hou*e somewhere Utwcen Third and Thirtieth streets, in New \otk He had a uiee little practice, a pretty httle wife and a bright eyed little baby What do you say. old bachelor? ' ought not he to bo supremely happy with all these possessions ' A nd yet such was very far from being the case ihe truth was. that Charlie Walters felt' hard time* ai acutely as any of us- -be began to look oautionaly after the stray pcnuics. and to realize the fact that he must retrench some whore Wall, it Joes seem rather singular where *11 our money can have gone," returned his wife, with haft' a smile and half a sigh 44 As you say. we don t commit any very great ex travagance. and yet it is equally certain that we must begin to l>e less pro!use in our expendi ture*."' Charlie was silent. " It seems tome, resumed his wife, " that I cau account for some of those missing dollars I coaxed you to buy, at two dollars the yard, when a plain ta|?stry at one half the price would have been just as good " "A ridiculous piece of folly.said Walters, pettishly. 4* You didn t say so at the time. And have you forgotten, she added maliciously, ?? that rosewood hook-case. in the back parlor, that usurped the place of the old mahogany shelves? Whose folly was that * And the big Chinese easy chair to smoke in ? and tho new ivory chcssmeu ? ' "5top. stop Mary."' said Charlie, laughing and reddening. 44 we have l?oth been a little to blame in the matter But I have a good idea in mv brain It is quite certain that we shall buy no more roeewuod secretaries and velvet carpet3 at present, so that we need not fear large extravagance*, and I propose that we bc z;n to exterminate the small ones?the iuvisi T>1<; expenses that lie in wait for u.- from hour to hour, and walk off with our funds in pcuny driblet* We'll commence this very day, and retort success in the evening What do you * * aay : "Agreed.' said Mary and Charlio kissed her made a faeo at the baby, and walked off to his down-town office. Mary still sat at the table thinking, when Biddy the nurse came up to take the baby out f jT his morning airing. Mrs. Walters looked first at the rubiaund daughter of Erin, and then at the baby, nestling in his cradle, like a half blown rosebud. Couldn t .-he take care of her own baby ' Why. of course she could ! And in half an h >ur Biddy went off with tears in her eyes, and half a pound of tea under her ragged red shawl! Mrs \\ alters went up to her room to prepare fir going out. There lay her little velvet Don nex in its box The day before she had laid a-?ide two dollar* and a halffor the purchase of new scarlet roses and ribbons for its decoration; but now she looked thoughtfully at the old pur pi" violets, remembered her agreement with Charlie, and concluded the bonnet would do very well as it waa this winter Was not she a wise little housewife ' In the morning's marketing she adhered firmly t? her g-xnl resolutions, turning away from all the expensive little rarities in which she had been wont to indulge, and stopped at the china store to countermand her yesterday s order for a beautiful little gilt pitcher Ihe man stared, and inquired the reason of her sudden change of miu J. but she smiled, and re plied simply that she bnd determined to use the old ones a little longer. Once. ou her wayhoine. ?'he paused at a *hop wtndow. and hesitated for a moment between economy and an exquisite bit of embroidery for a baby s dress The French pattern was beau tiful. and her purse lay provokingly close U> her finger* But wisdom triumphed, the bands wem left in the show-cise, and the three dol lars were safely carried home " Let me seo. said she, as she sat in the twi light. locking her baby's cradle, ai d waiting lor her husband s return. 44 Biddys six dollars a month is about thirty cents a day; my (lowers aud ribbons, two dollars and a bait those late peaches and the fiab that I resisted buying are another dollar, and that beautiful embroidery that would have made baby *u<4h a lovely dress ? and here she drew a litlle regretful sigh; was three dollars Well . 1 may safely consider that 1 Lave economized six dollars and eighty cents to day. in small sum- 1 wonder what Charlie has to report'" '? A good, economical little wife you are !" t?id Charlie, a few minutes afterward. when he beard hir simple recital *4 And now for uiy account V? hen I got dowu to the olLoe Tom. my factotum, announced his intention of going to California. and desired me to look out for a iucetnor I told Tom to go ahead, which he did. but 1 didn t think proper to look out for any other boy. judging that I might just as well takedown my own shutters, and kindle my own little office tire, as to pay dollar and a halt a week t?? any Tetn in existence." ?? Just what I saved by Biddy'*'cried Mary, clapning her hands " Well, go on.*' ??When I weut to get a cigar, my b?x was empty I hesitated some tim-> whether to refill it or not Twenty-live cents a day for cigarsis not much, but still I reflected that it was some thing. ho prudence triumphed " ??Right. laughed Mary, 44 but go on with your report.'' ?? Brown and Mercer came to the office forme to ride out to High Mridge with them A fast bor*e. an oyster supper, and all other expenses, would cost me about three dollars It was a lovely day. and I ilui'Si wavered, but I thought U yon. dear, and tol l them I couldn t go. The next thing was a very tritie?you 11 laugh at me. little wife. when 1 tell it." ?? W hat was it. Charlie ' I'm dyinz of curi ??sity ?? Weil, I sated just two cent# per diem, by cutting off one of my daily papers, as one will content all the news What do vou think of that r% ?? Why. I think even two cents i? worth sav ing.

Here ends my tale, with the except o i th'it I w.ilke 1 to and from the of fice to-day thereby gaining a deal of good ex ercise. and saving ten cents in car fare. Very well, -aid Mary, laughing, 'we will give you credit for economizing in the sum of seven dollars and eigbty-se\en cent* Add that to my *ix dollar* and eighty rents, and we have fourteen dollar* and sixty-seven cents! Oh! I Charlie who would have supposed we could j epend so much as that for superfluities iu one day " I do not think we should, tre, jr day. said Walters. 4 but still it shows the manner in which our money get* away. I like the plan. Mary dear; I like the idea that we are laying by something for that r*?sy lello* in the cradle, by a little judicious self-denial. In short. I believe we are really learning 'how to econo mise ' " A Vamiik Invaaios AxTtripATKD ?

Many experi menters have endeavorod to find an average on which to base observations as to the strength ot uaen; but many allowances have to be made lor climate, temperature, food, age, and other incidental interferences, it has. however, been determined that the best method of arriving at a true idea of the strength of men, is to ob serve the average effect produced by a laborer who continues his exertions several successive days. What id called a "dynamic unit" is then fixed upon as a standard by which to com pare results, and this is 1,000 lbs. avoirdupois carried one foot in one minute. According to M Coulomb, a man traveling on a level road may walk 30 miles ]>cr day, or 2>4 feet per minute, and continue his exertion for ten hours a day Taking the man's weight at 1^0 lbs , he has expended 23,ftJ0 dynamic units, or, in other words, has used the amount ot strength that would have been required to transport 2o.760.1)00 pounds one loot in a min ute. If, instead of walking on a level road, he a*c?nds a staircase, the velocity is roduced to 26 4 per minute, and he cau work eight hours per day. In this case he hod expended ouly 1901 dynamic units. A person carrying a weight ot 90 pounds, along a level road, travels at a rate of a mile and a half an hour, or 132 foot per minuto. and continues his exertion seveu beurs per day. The useful effect, besides carrying his own weight, is consequently l'JS!? dynamic units. The force which a man exerts in dragging a load has been variously estimated. Schulze says that a man can exert a pressure of 107 lbs. for a short time, and that a man may walk at the rate of from 4] to 6] miles per hour. The moat advantageous method of employing humr.n strength is in rowing a boat. Of course there are numerous exceptions to these rules of strength we have given, as they can but be an approximation to the average, but in inves tigations of this kind we must bo content with such result*?Scientific A nit rt can.

Dr. Jones, pronounced the applicant unhealthy, his proposal was rejected. A week or so afterwards, English made second application, and was then admitted, although at this time he was suffering from a serious affec tion of the lungs. lie aftorwnrds contributed 17s. 0d. to the society, then declared u|>on the funds, and was allowed to draw about ? 14. An inquiry, however, took place, and was discov ered that he had boon admitted through a curi ous blunder, for which the doctor was responsi ble. The medical certificate described English as not fit for membership, but the important little word was written so indistiuctly that it got corrupted into now. The managers of the society grew impatient at the mistake and its burden, and refused to continue Mr. English's allows nee. whereupon he brought an action against them. The J udge said that Dr. Jones's writing was so indistinct that it would justify either reading; but as the plaintiff had signed a declaration that he had -not suffered any ill ness for three and a halfyears.'' a verdict for de fendant was given, and the Judge naively re marked "that if doctors would write legibly, a world of trouble would be saved Nr.w Highway DiSGtiSK ?On SaturJay evening, states the Boston Journal, as a gen tleman. in company with a lady, was crossing Cambridge bridge, his attentiou was attracted to a person in female nttire, who was reeling against the railing and moaning bitterly The gentleman had passed the.Granger, when, leav ing his companion, be returned at her request and addressed the " female,' who appeared to be in deep distress Receiving no response to his inquiries concerning thecauso of her atllic tion. he approached and laid his hand on the shoulder of the individual, which was bo sooner dono than the stranger wheeled about and made a pass at the gentleman with a slung shot The blow fell short ot the mark, just grazing the head ?<( the astonished philanthropist lie de manded an explanation of the strange conduct, thereupon the "female disclosed a revolver, whi.-h until now had been secreted in a lur muff.
