When he a a raisin’ tatcr. By which you mean raison d'etre} Certainly. Says Danbury,—“Everybody must have taken down the family bible, on last Sunday. The dust was intolerable.” Low shoes and stockings of gorgeous colors and pattern are to be worn by gentlenun this summer. The New Haven police will be provided with straw hats, for the purpose of showing which way the wind blows on gusty days. At twenty-five a man wonders what wo man he will have; at fifty what woman will have him. A young husband calls his wife “Birdi**,” because, he says, she is always associated in his uiiud with a till. Said a worn an to a physician who was weighing two grains of calomel for a child “Dinna be so mean wi’ it, is for a poor, fa therless bairn.” An up-town young lady speaking of one of her aversions said the severest thing on rec ord: He’s almost a perfect brute—he only lacks instinct.” One of the best directions to follow for suc cess in society in this: “Talk to the young la dies, and lls.en when the old ones talk to you. ’ The latest feminine fashion of wearing the front hair is known as the Sky# terrier style. Probably it is only a natural consequence of the prevalence of this fashion that the pup pies are attracted. Bei >g just one steamer ahead of her papa, a pretty little New Orleans girl managed to get married in spite of his protests. He came up to her just in time to give her his bles- ing as the boat wa pa-diing off, though hit phras eology was exceptionable. The late Lusignani was a most accommo dating man, but a little too practical. Just before he was led out to execution, wc learn from the New York Observer, one of the priests said, “I would willingly be in your place; you will be in heav:n sosoon.” “Well, take my place,” said the prisoner; “I will get under the bed.” “Oh,” gasped fat Mrs. Weighty, as she as cended the second flight of stairs in her new residence, “I really cannot run up any more stairs.” “Of course not,” testily answered the husband; “but if the stairs were made of dressmakers’ bills you could run them up very easily.” “I do detest puns," exclaimed Mrs. W. the next day, recounting the conver sation to a friend. Ilovr Votes are Counted in Paris. The correspondent of the London Tele graph thus miuutely describes the method of making up (he election returns in Paris: “Paris is divided into twenty arrondisse ments, aud in each of these larger divisions are the various sections, varying from ten to twenty, where voting cou’d be carried on. In the department cf t'e Seine—which, by the by, includes very little more than the city of Paris—there were three hundred and twenty of these so-called sections. The voting lasted from six o’clock in the morning till six r. st and the procedure was invariably the same at every section all through the day. In the voting room three gentlemen are seated at a table, on which a square deal box is placed, secured by padlock, and having a hole like that of a rn^ney box. At a side table close by sits a fourth individual, who has long lists spread out before him. To this last official each elector exhibits his card, attesting his rij.hl to a vote; he then his name having been noteJ, passes on to the other table, slips his bulletin into the box, and his duty is done. The voting room—generally t*>e largest apartment in the Mairie, or other building ap pointed for the purpose—is open to everybody For my own part, at all events, 1 walked in to a great mauy, bringing home my pock its full of bulletins which had been forced upon me. and nobody once asked me a question. I happeneu to be at the Mairie in the hotel Drouot, at six o’clock, the hour fixed for the opening of the ballot boxes, and I was thus enabled to watch the whole process of sorting the tickets. The arrangement was begun in this wise. A balloting box having been op ened, and turned upside down, coiram papulo to show that no tickets bad been left inside, sorter No 1 takes up one folded paper from the heap before him, opening it flat, and pas es it to his neighbor, who, as soon as he has ten together uusifrted, passes the little bun dle on further. Sorter No. 3, after counting the tickets, pins the ten together, and trans fers them to sorter No. 4, who, when he has got ten ol these bundles, orote bundled tick ets in all, puts them ii.side a large envelope, which he hands to the president; and I hap pened to be next to one table, and I can ccrti ty to the scrupulous care exhibited by all con cerned in the counting. This process finished it was announced that two thousand two hundred and thiriy-six papers had been col lected. representing tbat number of voters outof two thousand eight hundred inscribed. The president staled, however, tbat the num ber of persons who had voted was two thous and two hundr d and twenty-five, although two thousand two hundred and thirty-six bulletins had been counted, adding that the error wtuld certainly be discovered in the process of sorting. He then begged any four gentlemen in the room to seat themselves at each oi the tab es. Two of the sorters at each table had before them a printed form, headed "Depouillement des votes,’ and mark ed with dots, arranged in lines of ten each line being denoted by its corresponding num ber. Another gentleman, opening one of the envelopes of one hundred tickets, took out a bundle of ten and slowly read out the names written on each bulletin. His companions writing the name of each candidate above a column, marked a dot every time the name was called; while amateur sorter No. 4 ar ranged the bulletins according to candidates. Errors were ail but impossibi'ities, and the discrepancy alluded to by the chairman was discovered in the very first bundle opened. The room was crowded; yet so intent was ev eryb dy on business that there was i.o noise. Indeed, the lamps with green shades on every table, the quiet, serious-looking galerie of ov erlookers round each, the huissiers gliding n listlessly about, and the monotonous voices of the tellers, as unchanging as though they were croupiers, reminded me irresistibly of a gambling house. At limes a question arose. For instance, one elector had written Gari baldi on his bulletin, and another Napoleon IV.—on which latter incident the president remarked that the prince was not of age. Usually however, there was nothing to dl> turb the monotony of the slow iteration of Remusat! Remusat! Barodet! with an occa sional Stoffel ” From H-arth and Home. Mrs. Kate Hnnnibee's Diary. CARPETS—OLD SHOES—SPRING PASTIME— CANNING STRAWBERRIES — MOTHS — A CARD RECEIVER. May 8th.—The carpet question has been agitated in the family, -and after discussing the best thing and the practical thing we have decided what to do. The sitting room carpet is worn quite threadbare in the middle but all around the sides is bright and fresh After giving it a thorough beating, and then wipiug it with a cloth wrung from water in which a gill of ox gall to a gallon of water has been stirred, we will tack it down just as be fore, aud in the middle spread a stamped drugget. The colors of this tew crumb clotn shall not be too bright, else it will make the carpet look old: and we need not pay over $11.50 for it. By this slight expenditure our carper will have a new lease of life, and wo can put «hat a new carpet would cost into a trip to the White Mountains, perhaps. In the dining-room we decide to have a large oil cloth extending under the fable. This will protect the carpet, and not he too cold for the feet in summer. The carpet n my bed room I will turn so that it may wear evenly, not wroDg side out, but by ripping the breadths apart and letting t ose that now run down the middle of the room, change places with those at tl.c sides. When these little clattering feet by reason of increasing years and gravity of movement, pass over the floors noiselessly, I can, perhaps,endure ma' ling in summer. Hut now I know i must keep all the floors ani stairways padded. We have been planting grape vines to-day, and around the roots, a little distance off, we placed o r old shoes; alt o all the bones we coul i pick up; also old woolen rags worthless for other purposes; also a poor little chicken t iat the mother-hen stepped on just as it be came a breathing creature; al30 a mole that the boys caught and drowned, and then we wished that W'e had some more varmints to ground the roots.

Preserves have gone outoffasnion.A few may be put up, but we depend on cans for Iruit now. Cans of glass,tin,or stone may be used tor strawberries, and various quantities ofsugar according to the taste of the person putting them up. Some arid to a pound of berries a quarter of a pound of sugar, others use pound for pound, others simply marling a syrup, cook berries iu it enough for oi.ccau; when they boil up skim out iuto the can and seal immediately. Then throw another lot into the same syrup, and so on till all the fruit is takeu jare of. The fruit should be fresh and perfect, hulled as soon as taken from the v nes, and canned as soon as bulled. Some pu‘ the sugar with the fruit and let it stand over night, others make as short work of the process as possi ble. Some simply scald the berries thor oughly, others cook the.n twenty minutes, and all claim to keep them perfectly well as to floV >r and termen alion, one atd two years. They should be kept in a dark cool place, as light injures the color, though it does not affect the quality. John Stuart Mill’s Tribute to His Wife. The death of Jobu Stuart Mill recalls an incident which revealed the depths of his ten der nature. His work on “Liberty"’ ap peared in 1859. soon after the death of his wife, and the memory ot that lady’s singular abilities and womanly virtues w»s embalmed by him in the touching and eloquent Dedica tion of the volume. It was as lollows; “To the beloved and deplored t'emory of her who was the inspirer, and in part the author, of all that is best in my writings— the frierd and wife whose exalted sense of truth and right was my strongest incitement, and whose approation was my chief re ward—I dedicate this volume. Like all I have written for many years, it belongs as much to her as to me; but the work as it stands has ha t, in a very insufficient • egree, the inestimable advantage of her revision; some of the most important portions having been reserved for a more careful re-examina tion, which they are now never destined to receive. Were I but capabie of imerpreting to the world one half the great thoughts and noble feelings which are buried in her grave, I should be the medium of a greatei benefit to it, than is ever likely to arise from any thing that I can write, unprompted and un assisted by her all but unrivalled wisdom.” Mrs..Mill lies buried at Avignon, long the home of the well-mated pair, and in the spring of every year since her dealh he has made a pilgrimage toiler grave. During the last of these visits he died. The wsrid now pays to him a tribute as sincere and as just as that which he paid to her. A daring thlel stole a valuable overcoat be longing to Rev. E. E. Hale, from the Boston Public Library a month or two since. Be coming “hai-d up” for money subsi quently, the scoundrel placed the gaiment in charge of his “uncle” as collateral fbr a loan of seven dollars, and there being no present prospect of redeeming it, he very thought fully informed Mr. Hale of the fact, and it has been recovered. The letter conveying that information is a very curious piece of composition, and we give it entire: New York City, May 22, 1873. Rev. Edward Everett Hale, Old and New: My Dear Sir—Having just been released from a Short period of Confinement, I drop you this to Inform you if you want that nice overcoat ($50.00) which was Professionally abstracted from that noble EdiPee, the Bos ton Public Library last Eeb’y you can find it at the first “IYoodbinery” on Broadway In that Part of the ''Huh” known as So.

This fragrant wood comes from the sandal-wood tree, which grows in many parts of the indies. It is shipped in kgs, and is exported in large quantities to China, where it is employed to burn in the temples. Its use, however, is not sacred to the *;ods, for wealthy Chinamen burn sandal-wood on their healths lor the sake of its delightful odor. Don’t you think it is a,pity to burn it up ii. this way? The beautiful yellow wood retains its fragrance for years, and the best use to which sandal-wood is put is carv ing it into pretty and useful things which long delight their owners. One of tbe most beautiful things I ever saw made of sandal wood was a writing-desk which came from Bombay. City ot Portland.
