They form almost a point over the forehead, and are a fine combination of lace, feathers, flow ers, jet and hair pins. The Marquis de Chambruu, long and favor ably known in Washington, where he has re sided for nearly fifteen years, has written a book, entitled “Le Pouvoir Executif aux Etats-Unis; etude de droit Constutionnel.” The Duko of Argyll once asked Edmund Stone how he, a poor gardener’s boy, had con trived to be able to read Newton’s “Priuc’p ia” in Latin. To which he replied, “One needs only to know the twenty-four letters of the alphabet in order to learn everything else that one wishes.” President Thiers replied to a French poli tician, who, in speaking of Spain, called her “a sister republic” of France, “You may say what you please, but she is a younger sister that may cause her elder to miss her mar riage and prevent her from ever finding an establishment.” A French vital statistician notes as a sig uiucum. coincidence me lacc mar, me uimi nutiou of the size of fashionable cravats has been accompanied by a corresponding increase in the rate of mortality; which, he thinks, shows conclusively that the “good old stock” was characterized by greater longevity than is attainable by the small beaus of the present day. Last Friday week the Clerk of the Massa chusetts House of Representatives was re quested by one of the members to read a pas sage from the Scriptures, but after a dilligent search he was unable to find a Bible any where upon the premises. This upsets the beautiful tradition that the members of the Massachusetts Legislature always carry a pocket edition of the Sacred Word about them.—Commercial Advertiser. The King of Bavaria has given a commis sion to the celebrated sculptor Halbig for a colossal group representing the Crucifixion, to be erected on a mountain commanding the valley of the Amines, in the Bavarian High lands, the scene of the decennial Passion Play. The figure of the Saviour is to be carved out of an immense block of marble of upwards of fourteen hundred weight. Frills for the neck are exceedingly fashion able. They are made of Swiss muslin, bob binet lace, and very fino cambric; some have a lace edging; all are made quite full, and are handsomely fluted. The same style of linger ie is worn around the wrists, and produces a very neat and pleasing effect. These plait ings are made of doubled tulle, muslin and bobbinet lace, the two former edged with Val enciennes lace.

The Rev. George C. Harding, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, is one of the most remarkable men of the ago. Regularly once or twice a year he starts a new Sunday paper at Indianapolis. As soon as the entei prise bankrupts him he goes to St. Louis or Cincinnati and connects himsell with one of the daily papers there. And then, when he gets money enough to pay his railroad fare, he goes back to Indianapolis and starts anoth er Sunday paper. It will be a surprise to many to know that Washington Irving was a confessed orchard thief. Once, when picking up an apple under a tree in his own orchard, he was ac costed by an urchin of the neighborhood, who, not recognizing him as the proprietor, offered, to show him a tree where he could "get some better apples than those.” "But,” said the boy, “we must take care the old man doesn’t sec us.” “I went with him,” said Irving, “and we stole a dozen of my own apples.” It is not quite certain that our boys are very much smarter than those who grow up under the effete monarchies of Europe. To be sure a boy in Lowell yesterday knocked his father down with a club and robbed him of $36, which shows boldness and enterprise : in the pursuit of gain, but a juvenile French man lately attempted to kill his father in or der that he might be the only son of a widow and so escape conscription, which shows more subtle reasoning and ./Inessa. On the whole, we think the superiority in this case is with the foreigner. A solicitor who had recently been engaged by a prominent life insurance firm returned to the office of his employers the other day, and complained that he had been snubbed by a gentleman on whom he had called. “Snubbed?” cried the manager, “snubbed? Why, what did you do that he should have' snubbed you ? I have solicited life insurance from the Atlantic tQ the Mississippi, and have never yet been snubbed. I have been kicked down stairs, beaten over the head with chairs, and thrown out of the window, but snubbed I have never been,” The solicitor is driving a coal wagon. Another clever gentleman has been deceiv ed by the hydrants. It was New 1 ear’s, and he was rejoicing under the influence of about 1000 diops of joy. He ran against a hydrant, while homeward bound, working long longi tudes. He happened to mistake the hydrant for a colored boy. “Scuae me sonnie” said he. patting the hydrant paternally. “Didn’t run you down because you was black. “Grow up [hie] and be a useful man [hie]. Imitate [hie] my example.” And he laid a quarter on his nozzle, and went on with a lighter heart and the satisfaction that he made one poor man happy. The Poet’s Wife. From the Atlanta Weekly. This morning we were writing a leading article, when there was a deprecating tap at the sub-editors’s door; he opened it and we heard a mild murmur of “Where is the edi tor, please?” and his bland but indefinite re ply, “Right along that way, there’s the door.” Of course the visitor opened the wrong door? one that led into a dark closet full of ex changes and rejected manuscript. Next wi heard a vague fumbling at another door that leads down stairs to the press room. Thos« stairs are steep enough to ifrord diversion t( the members of the Alpine Club, and befon we learned to keep the door locked we hac no end of sad experiences. We lost severa subscribers down those stairs: That is_a man would come in to see us, and mistaking the door for that of our sanctum, would dis appear suddenly. Next day he would sto] his paper. When the press-work lookei badly we used to start down those stairs, ex horting the printer as we went. We alwry spoke with much dignity while descend!^ the first two or three steps—and then—wi usually found ourself at the foot of t he stain saying “never mind, we’re all right now’ and the sub-editor standing over us re com mending that brown paper be applied to ouj phrenological developments. And all thai day our classic brow would look like an in sufficiently-done-up grocer’s parcel, or a ground plan of the Himalayas. Finally, after trying all the otber doors the visitor arrived at our sanctum, and asked “where is the editor of the Atlanta Weekly ?” “That,” said we, without looking up from our worb“is a ‘widdle- that we fear no fellow can find out. We have considered the feasi bility ot sending a reporter to the wilds of Africa in search of him.” “Oh, dear!” said our visitor, “I wanted to see him very par ticularly.” We looked up—it was a lady, dressed in a green barege dress and a black alpaca veil, (we think that’s what the sub editor said—he has a sister and ought to know). Of course we apolo gized for our levity, dusted a chair for the lady, and resigned onrselves to be talked to for an hour at least. “I am Mrs. -, the wife of the Poet of Atlanta”, be gan our visitor. We acquiesced. “I haven't beard from Mr.-for a long time,” she went on. We began to congratulate her— but thought better of it in time and assumed an espnssion of condolence. “He said he should send for the children and me to come out to California—but he hasn’t, and he doesn’t send any money,” she continued, “and it s hard work to bring up eight child ren on plain sewiug.” While we were trying to understand what she meant, and wonder ing whether plain sewing as an article of diet would be likely to be good for children, she drew from her pocket a roll ef papers.” “Some poems” she said, “that Mr.-left —there’s one about the children, it begins, ‘Three smiling cherubs in our home.' There are eight really, you know, but he said three sounded better in poetry. This one is about my mother—I don’t quite under stand it, he never seemed to like mother, they had a great many words and she conldn’t stay with us—but isn’t this first verse about her, pretty?” TO MY MOTHER-IN-LAW. The many-memoried yean that o’er her bead Have passed, hare left on It a sliver crown And peace and wisdom all about her shed A mellow light as when the sun adown Gleams on the Appalachian mountains brown. “He wrote that last summer—it was the Fourth of July, and she said the children ought to have ten cents to buy firecrackers, and he called her a foolish, meddling old wo man. I never could sec how it ail was exact ly.” “Very extraordinary” said we. “I thought I’d leave the papers with you If you’re willing” she said “and you would look them over, perhaps, and give me whatever they were worth to you.” We assured her we would, hoped she would allow us to advance five dollars for them, gave her some little books lor the children, and bowed her out In our best style. Our readers will hear more , _ from those poems, unless we mistake. Specialties jn Farming. The following is from an essay by T. D. Curtis of the Utica Herald: While, as a general rule, I think a system of mixed farming and proper rotation of crops the safest for the farmer and the best for the farm—as it affords the best use and economy ol time and labor, aids in keeping up the fertility of the soil, and saves the far mir from the evil influences of excessive fluctuation in prices—it seems to me patent that few farms, if any, are equally adapted to all branches of agriculture. It is almost certain that portions of them are better suit ed to some branches than to others. While this difference in different parts of the farm fits it for varied purposes and makes mixed farming' a necessity iu a thorough system, much tns largest portion of it is likely to be best adapted to some one line of busi ness. If so, then common sense distates that this line should be made a specialty. On a grain farm there would be less nee 1 of making a single crop a specialty than on a dairy farm. While more corn, or wheat, or oats miirhl. ho raiaod one voar. thorp miirht ho good reasons why anotler crop should have the preference next year. But on a farm manifestly better for grass than anything elae, the choice would necessarily be between dairying and stock-raising, or a combination of the two. And In a combination, it would be difficult not to give one or the other the preference and something of the character of a specialty. If stock-raising were to be se lected as a specialty, there would be a choice between fancy stock beef, hones and sheep My Idea would be to make a specialty of ouj of these, but to raise a few of the other kinds of stock, for the put pose of using up the dif ferent kinds of feed most economically, as well as to avoid the danger of beiDg engaged wholly in a line that might be overdone, u I decided that dairying was the specialty to which my farm was best adapted, I should still aim to raise a few sheep, now and then a colt, and have some beef and mutton, as well as veal and pork, to turn out. I should also choose between cheese-making and butter-making, and breed accordingly. I certainly would not indiscrimina'ely mix the milk of butter cows and of cheese cows, and work it up into either butter or cheese, as the fancy struck me. I would make a speciality of butter cows for butter making, and ot cheese cow3 for che -se making. But if by freak, accident or choice, I should hap pen to possess a mixed herd, I would keep their milk separate, and make butter from the milk of the butter cows instead of work ing it into cheese, which would bring no more in the market than cheese made from the milk of ordinary cows. I would make cheese of the milk of the cheese cows, in stead of taking off the comparatively small amount of cream and makiug skim cheese or feeding the milk to the hogs. In this way I should try to devote every animal to the uses for which ft was best adapted, and every part of the farm to such crops as it was best suited to raise. While making a specialty of some such branch, to which I conceived my tarm best suited, 1 would as far as its charac ter and conditious would permit, endeavor to raise everything for my own con sumption, with,perhaps, now and then a sur plus to sell. In selecting a specialty, I should be governed entirely by circumstances. If I wanted to pursue any particular line of farm ing, I should try to get hold of a farm suited to that purpose. If want ot means or some thing else prevented, or I should come in possession of a farm by inheritance or some fortuitous circumstance, I should adapt my Hue of farming to the character of my farm. My aim would be to put everything to its best uses. If ray ideas are correct, then no general rules can be laid down to guide any one on the question of selecting or not select ing a specialty. Everything must depend on conditions and the judgment of the farmer. niRCELUNEOUl NOTICE*.
