The attempt creates hut little re mark, as most everybody believes that Donald McKay is nobody. A new and effective method of muzzling dogs has been introduced. The muzzle is placed just behind the car, and by manipulat ing a thing commonly called a trigger, the safety of the public is assured. A minister in Lexington, Ky., lately said in the pulpit that he had seen a pack of cards and a backgammon-board in the parlor of a member of his church, and several pious men scolded their wives for carelessness that night. Donn Piatt has become interested in a Quaker paper. Donn is a bom fighter, cither with pen or s^ord; hut he has lived so long in close contiguity to the Indian Bureau that his peaceful instincts are evidently getting the better of him. A semi-scientific contemporary insists on the hygienic necessity of “sleep obtained two hours before midnight, when the negative forces are in operation.” We think we eoold understand this, perhaps, if some one would explain what a “uegative force” is. Parepa sang a Greek song at Cairo, recent ly. There was to be a concert iu half-a-doz en languages, and the Greek basso fell sick, and Madame Parepa, though knowing noth ing of the language, mastered it sufficiently in twelve hours to give the song so well that the public nearly went mad over her.” A youDg clerk in a Dubuque fancy store, who l.ad been requested by a lady customer to send home a spool of thread which she had purchased, hired an express wagon, in which he placed the spool, and so drove to the lady’s residence, where he deposited the spool in the hall, endwise, like a barrel. Dr. Reid, the celebrated medical writer, was requested by a lady ot literary eminence to call at her house. “Be sure you recollect the address, said 6he, as she quitted the room, “No. 1 Chesterfield street.” “Madame,” said the doctor, “I am too great an admirer of politeness not to remember Chesterfield, and, I fear, too selfish ever to forget number one.” Miss E. Stuart Phelps writes of Miss Smiley the Quakeress preacher, in the Independent, as a woman whose very name, but a year or two since, was strange to the ear of the gen eral public; who has received neither a theo logical diploma nor a ministerial ordination nor even a license to preach; who has a voice as sweet as a robin's, and a face as serene as a Madonna’s, and courage as resolute as an apostle’s and a purpose as fixed as a Quaker's and who wears her bonnet into the pulpit be Jfettlng for Windows and Doonu ’ If we would have cool parlors, dining rooms, kitchens and bed-rooms, during the hot summer weatr.er, we must have mosquito netting or wire gauze in all our windows, and if possible, at the doors also. Window blinds cannot take the places of netting or gauze, because they exclude so much of the cool eve ning and night air, and although they are very essential and needful to shut out the hot sunshine, and the beating storm, yet they will not answer all our needs. Mosquito netting can be purchased at a very cheap rate, and the ‘’gude mon” can easily make or procure some frames to fit all tne windows, wbictr can be either painted white, or st lined a dark red to match the sashes of the windows. Then dark blue, pink, green or white mosquito netting can be easily stretched and ticked over them by the skillful fingers of house-mother; and after she has used th m for one summer,nothing could persuade her to go without them another sea son. They will exclude mosquitoes, flies, moths, and all other inscsts, and will not ex clude the fresh, cool air. They are very easi ly taken out. and put in; or they can be so ar ranged that the windows can he closed on damp, cool days. Any woman can tack a piece of the netting across the lower half of the w indow on the outside of the sash, if that is the only means she can employ. The wire gauze requires a workman’s handling, and it can be made into permanent shades'which will withstand all weathers. When we have tried the good effect of these shades, wn must also have the doors at tended to. A slight framework of piue can be made, and fastened to the outer door door posts by means of strong hinges; and with a hasp to fasten it with, and a handle to open it by, we can bid defiance to flies and mos quitoes both by day and night. Common tools and a little ingenuity are needed to pre pare a door, blind, of shade for the outer kitchen piazza, which will add far beyond its cost to the comfort of tho cook and hi use wife. Mosquito netting can do duty for the shade when the door frame is ready; but coarse wire netting, such as is used for sieves and the like, would be far preferable, because it would last for a long time, while the cotton netting is usually destroyed in two years. In u ing the cotton netting, however, for the windows, it is well to select the pure white ft r the parlor, pink for the chambers, and green or blue for the kitchcD, pantry and milk room.
