There Is no bale-ball club in Danbury, and so a Pine street gentleman was obliged to fall from a stoop to break his thumb. Poetry should be an alterative; modern play-wrights have converted it into a sedative, which they administer in such unseasonable quantities that, like an over-dose of opium, it makes one sick.—/. C.

The editor of a popular magazine in New York declares that 100,000 women are con stantly sending poetry to him, the common est subject treated being “Our Dead Baby.” The pilot who is always dreading a rock or a tempest must uot complain if he remain a poor fisherman. We must at time* trust something to fortune, for fortune has often some share in what happens.—Hetaitasio. Even little children seem to be victims of intemperance in the oil regions. Somebody In Titusville.

A Kansas district school was recently vis ited and addressed by Messrs. Big Mouth, Powaer Face and Spotted Wolf—all the no- ! blest kind of noble red men. A mischievous 1 school boy placed a pin trap where Big Mouth sat down, and that chieftain was ob served to rise hastily aud remark: “Ugh! too much flea bite.

A Nashville compositor i^d occasion, the other night, to wrestle with a >ommunication on the subject of merging the Ni»hviIlo Uni versity.

We are glad to hear it; the white kids uniformly worn by our reporters, pressmen and compos itors when at work, in order to keep up the aristocratic reputation of the Journal, have heretofore formed a serious item of expense.” The Japanese display great wisdom In rec ognizing the importance of “educating the mothers.” In this respect Japan has ever been in advance oi other Oriental nations. Her females have been educated. The policy of the government now is to afford them all , the advantages which the other sex eujoy, and by foreign travel and the establishment of female schools to qualify them for the fu ture, which the leaders of this extraordinary • people so evidently think awaits their nation. t Some of the Western press credit Anna ! Dickinson with dramatic aspirations. A t Minneapolis paper has discovered in her a strong comic vein, but thinks that she would run a risk of failure in tragedy. On the other hand, other writers suggest that she would succeed more in the earnest, the j pathetic, and the terrible than in the lighter vein of the eomedienne; while the Golden Age thinks that in the field of melodrama, which is neither comedy nor tragedy, hut a - mingling of both, Miss Dickinson would stand a fair chance of making for herself a - future career in the theater as successful as i her past has been in the lyceum. r ■ Hawaiian Lepers. A correspondent writing recently from th * Sandwich Islands, says: “Epidemics have swept over the islands, sweeping away thousands, but there lingers here a scourge which is striking deep into _ the vitality or the race. I allude to the lep rosy, which is becoming fearfully alarming in ,f Its spread. The settlement on Molokai Island to which the unfortunate victims of the deso lating disease are banished, contained, by the census, four hundred and thirty-eight lepers, VV X a* V Alivt • >ut since that ti ne about one hundred mots lave been added. Within the space of one s eek I have seen a vessel depart from this >ort with its second load of leprous patients. It is almost impossible tor the authorities to erret out all the cases of leprosy exlstiug, tho K.?lin,s secreted or concealed by rela eri friends, that they may not be doom itarv banishuient, as the strict san retum ?l.atl<?n3 require. No leper can ever sight to wit n hom,r 11 “ a sad and sickening the hideous lookSe Beparation b€tw'eeu who rend thc air ■Sith'lhri 'C1mg he!lrU’ tive wails, as theh2Llv.lL Peculiar, plain I have been an iXTnntaL m°rs 'eaward' painful sundering of ties t.y.witncss to the ship, hut in the incident have° seen"iv.fr» etn " finer feelings of human nature exUtl^ln hearts of these poor Kanakas as sonMy as in the superior race. ’ - It is strange that leprosy confines Itself almost exclusively among the native popula tion. I have heard of but one case on these islands where a white person was attacked by it. A brief description will suffice to show the terrible nature of the destructive plague. The patient is attacked with irregular, livid red spots in the face, and at a late period the cars and nose are similarly attacked. In many instances the whole body Is more or less covered with them, or with a somewhat scaly eruption. Slight itching is sometimes felt, but not always. These spots are slightly elevated, shining, and after a time become larker; then small hard or soft tubercles ap pear, mostly on the face, of the same color, which become after a while confluent and form irregular tubercles of the size of a pea to a hen’s egg; the face now becomes much disfigured and, the skin rough, full of wrin kles and fissures,similar to the skin of an phant; the nose and ears are much increased in size, the nostrils are enlarged, the eyes become inflamed—the lids nearly coering the eye—the lips are enormously gvollen, and the whole face has a most horri(’aPpear ance. The nails of the feet and lands be come affected, the former being raised by matter deposited under them. Toe feet and forearms swell, and ulcers lorm;*he skin be comes gangrenous, leaving thc muscles hare. The joints are thus attacked *nd destroyed in succession by the slow process of this ter rible disease, which renders those who are affected with it objects of uorror until the ;rave conceals them. From the most reliable lata I can obtain, the disease was brought lere from China In IQ4Q avwI u ioro A* teution of medical mo> was called to it. Notwithstanding the strict surveillance main tained by the government, it has increased, propagated by intermarriage and through hereditsry transmission.” Tie Circus. I once heard a bright child declare that it flatuses were prohibited in Heaven, she did nt wish to go there. She had been bap ized, was under Christian influences, and revious to this heterodoxy, had never given er good parents a moment’s anxiety. Her aive utterance touched a responsive chord rlthin my own breast, for well did I remem* •er how gloriously the circus shone by the ght of other days; how the ring-master, in a mnkled dress coat, seemed the most envia le of mortals, beiDg on speaking terms with 11 the celestial creatures who jumped ov«r lags and through balloons; how the clown ras the dearest, funniest of men; how the ihletes in tights and spangles were my beau leals of masculinity; and how La Belle Rose, rith one foot upon her native heath, other vise a well padded saddle, and the other lointed in the direction of the sweet little herubs that sat up aloft, was the most ascinating of her sex. I am persuaded that ircuses fill an aching void in the universe. Vhat children did before their invention I hudder to think, for circuses arc to child lood what butter is to bread; aud what the rorld did before the birth of Bamum is an al most equally frightful problem. Some are om to shows, others attain shows, and yet gain others have shows thrust upon them, larnum is a bom show-man. If ever a man jifilled his destiny it Is the dircovere rof Tom 'humb. With the majority nf men and romen life is a failure. Not until one leg angles in the grave is their raison cTstre dls losed. The round people always find them elves sticking in the square holes, and vice ersa; but with Bamum we need not deplore vie manquee. We can smile athis reverses, jr even the phoenix has cause to blush In his resence. Though pursued by tongues of re, Bamum remains invincible when iron, tone and mortar crumble around him, and rhile yet the smoke is telling volumes of de traction, the cheery voice of the showman xclaims: “Hereyou are, gentlemen; ad aission 60 cents, children half price,—Kate field. _ Some Varieties of Eyes. Birds of lofty flight, as the condor, eagles, 'ultures and carrion-seeking prowlers of tho feathered race, have telescopic vision, and bus they are enabled to look down and dis iover their unsuspecting victims. As they ipproach noiselessly from above, the axis of 'ision changes—shortening, so that they see ust as distinctly within one foot of the ground s when at an elevation of one mile in the ,ir. This fact explains the balancing of a leli hawk on its pinions half a mile above a till pond, watching for fish. When one is elected, down the savage hunter plunges, he focal axis, varying as the square of the listance, giving the hawk a distinct view of ts intended prey always. As they ascend, hen the axis 18 elongated by a curious raus :ular arrangement so as to see far again, in ails have their keen eyes at the extremity >f flexible horns, which they can protrude or Iraw iu at pleasure. By winding the instru ment round the edge of"a leaf or a small stalk they can see how matters stand on the op posite side. The hammer-headed shark has its wicked-looking eyes nearly two feet apart It can bend the thin edgings of the head on which the organs arc located so as to examine the two sides of an object the size of a fully ;rown codfish. Flies have immovable eyes, rhey stand out from the head like half an ipple, exceedingly prominent. Instead of leing smooth hemispheres they have an im nense number of facets, resembling old faah lnpd p-Iars watch seals, each one directing he light directly to the optic retina. That ixplams why they cannot be approached in my direction without seeing what is coining. ■-New York Mail. nilCELLANEOt'S NOTICED.
