A wounded conscience in able to unpara d'se paradise itself.—Fuller. Boston says that hant will revive its Na uanticnt splendor this summer. “Dummerhaven’’ is the euphon.ous pet name bestowed by the Western press upon Dayton, O., on account of its 530 bar-rooms. The Spectator compares Charles D. Warner anther of “My Summer in a Garden,'* to Charles Lamb and Arthur Helps. A mind too active and vigorous wears away the body, as the finest jewels do soonest wear their settings. Among*the spring fashions are announced, “medium textures.” Are these to be worn at seances for “spiiit photographs ?'* The latest bonnet is a trifle higher than freight on the railroads, and as gracetul in proportion. An Oregon paper refers to a new editor on a rival sheet as “a young gentleman of frugal mental capacity.” Why is a tooth in greater danger before it decays than afterwards ? Because in the for mer case it is in a pre-carious condition. The >iew York Times says the first thought of any one on reading of a railway collisons is the wild hope that a prize-package boy has been killed. Have greatness of soul enough to relish im mortality, and at the same time m 'deration enough to enjoy the transitory blessings Heaven has bestowed upon you—Socrates. In one thing, at least, America can beat ef fete Europe. Our Lava Beds surround the meanest “crat?rs” in the world; they are nastier than Vesuvius. Generosity during life is a very different thing from generosity in the hour of death; one proceeds from genuine liberality and be nevolence, the other Irom pride or fear.—Hor ace Mann. Success in life is very apt to make us forget the time when we weren’t much. It is just so with a frog on a jump—be can’t remember when he was a tadpole—but other folks can. The “Girl of the Period,” equipped with broad leather belt and club-handied parasol attached, is suspected of copying the police men’s uniform on account of the “taking way” they have. A little girl was one day reading the His tory of England with her governess, and com ing to the statement that Henry I. never laughed after the death of his son, she look ed up and said, “what did he do when he was tickled ?” Some lively girls in Pittsburg, with malice aforethought, placed the effigy of a woman in a young man’s bed, and str ewed the room with hoopskirts, false hair, etc He bid the false hair, and the lively girls stayed at home from church, nerit day. Lapland, famous hitherto for nothing save reindeer, sledges, furs and perenuial sleighing now come* to the fore as an El Dorado. There is said t > be gold in abundance under the almost everlasting snows. Russians ar d Norwegians are flocking to the new “claims.” Different people take eompliments in differ ent manners. It will be remembered H at the king of Denmark recently thanked Pro fessor Watson of Michigan University for naming a bran new asteroid after his daugh ter, Tbyra, but Mr. Sm th of Rochester, N. Y., has severely punished a canal mariner for ealling a mud scow “Nancy,” after his daugh ter. There is no period in a man’s life when he can wrestle with such learned subjects as when he graduates from college. Among the topics which the seniors of Dartmouth aie going to demolish at the coming commence ment are, “the Law of Growth and Decay in the Material Universe;’’ -The Intentional Theory”; “the Union of Statesmanship and Philosophy,” and such like. The intellectu al daring of these fellows would put Newton and Bacon to shame. The wild man has been taking a long va cation, but bas returned at last to bis anci“nt occupation of scaring country people out ot their wits. He is in Florida this time, and has a peculiarity which we never heard of before that of “ranging apparently from five to seven feet in height.” This having a range of two feet in his stature must be a satisfaction to a wild man, especially as he wears nothing but “long whitish hair of bristly st iffness,” and it does not multiply his tailor’s bills. Dumas the elder was very preud of the large sums paid for his writings. One evon in the aa.’on of a rich financier the conversa tion turned on the remuneration of letters. I,’ said Dumas, “am certainly the best paid. I receive thirty sous a line.” “In deed, monsieur,” said a bystander. “I have never worked tor less than a million a line. What do you think of th it?” “You arc jok ing.” “Hot at all.” “What are you then ?” “Contractor of railways.” The author laughed, buf was a little vej^d, neverthe less. This is a Western editor's description of the Maine farm upon whith he passed his happy boyhood: “It was one of those mag nificent Maine farms with a solid granite foundation, slate roof, chinked in with nig ger heads and ornamented with young moun tains two or three rods apart. Spruce gum was our only sure crop, and we used to raise a few of the large red horse potatoes common to Hew England soil. These potatoes, with codfish, are the staple commodities on the Coast of Maine. The manner of cultivating them lias been much improved of late, under the direction of the great American agricul turist, Schuyler Colfax, assisted by the com bined wisdom of the Bethlehem Township Early Bose Debating Club.” Mothers no not let youb children trifle with coughs or colds.
