A photographer requested tW i i “Taken front life,” should he hU epitaph!'*"’ Garibaldi’s history of his “Campaign io Italy during 1800,” is to be published simul taneously in England and the United States. Indiana claims to have discovered the re mains of a whale and argues that she was once an island in the mid-ocean. Au elderly person named Laing having re sumed business and opened shop in an interi or town the local paper is reminded thereby ot “Auld Laitig’s sign.” The Fort Worth 8tan'lard fondles the idea that Texas will “one day loom up in great ness, and at last dwarf the old States of the Atlantic seaboard.” An agriculturist of Dodge County, Wis., has hit upon the felicitous dodge of raising potatoes from the hills that flesh is heir to in the village graveyard. Is it unjust that the mother should suffer for the inexperience of the child ? That doc trine would turn eveiy cradle upside down. To suffer {brothers is the highest mark of heroism and nobleness.—Beecher. Before falling eight feet upon a pile of stones, alwavs take a reef in your tongue. If Mr. Seller of Louisville had taken this simple precaution, he would not have bitten off that useful member. The French custom of drinking water with a little sugar put in to soften it is beginning to find favor here, though not to such an ex tent yet as to interfere with the custom of bars. A Memphis jury, having convicted a man of murder, now finds that the supposed mur dered man is living. The question is wheth er the verdict shall be rescinded or the man allowed to murder his victim. A kind of bat that chirps has lately been observe., about the roofs and chimneys of some houses in the upper part of the city On account of its chirping, the discoverer of it surmises that it may be a cricket bat. In olden times, an essential part of a bride’s outfit was sand for scouring her kitchen im plements. Nnw-a-uays they don’t trouble about the sand; all that is required from fa ther is that he shall “down with the dust.” The setting of a great hope is like the set ting ot the sun. The brightness of ourlite is gone, shadows of the evening fall around us, and the world seems but a dim reflection itself—a broader shadow. We look forward into the coming lonely night; the soul with draws itselt. Then stars arise, and the night is holy.—Lonyfellcm. “Oh, Mr. Butcher, what a quantity of bone there was in that piece of meat we had from you,” said a lady, very indignantly. “Was there, ma’am? But, howsomever, the first fat bullock I kill without any bone, I’ll let yon have one joint for nothing.” An English reviewer points out the fact that at the present time it is the novel, and not the ballad, that forms the nation, and that th ■ school of sensational writers, who almost monopolize the popular reading of two countries, are doing the English language a mischief that can hardly be cured. “Men say ‘you cannot conduct business ac cording to a stiaight rule. There must be equivocation.’ That is between you and the ju gment-day. My business is not to glose over these things. I believe that truth and fair-dealing are in the long run the best, and that any business which cannot be conducted on that ground ought not to be conducted at all. A man who cannot prosper in that way ought not to prosper.”—Beecher. “Fountains of health” that run root beer of various kinds are now in full operation. Thes; concerns, however, do not appear to interrere with the custom of the regular bars over which alcoholic beverages are dispensed. With most people a draught of root beer does not count, and is only taken to assuage thirst between the serious business drinks of each day. _ _ A Funny Scene. THE LOST TRIBES—AND ONE MORE. The Court of Assizes of the Seine was late occupied with the trial for wife-murder of Claude Rippert. In a recent sitting the fol lowing related by the French jour nals, occurred in the examination of a wit ness: PresUent of the Cour' to witness: Your name, surname and profession ? Answer: Daniel, forty-five years, Israelite, restaurateur by profession. Q. You keep a restaurant? A. No, Monsieur le President, I am a res taurateur of nationalities. You cannot sure ly hate forgotten that after the taking of Je rusalem by Nebuchadnezzar Q. Let us come to the point. You quit ted the house of the accused an hour before the murder? A. Yes, Monsieur le President. I was on the point of going to Marseilles to embark there to commence my search for the eleven tribes of Israel, when the Commissaire of police sent me ordeis to remain in France. After all, I said to myself, since the eleven tribes of Israel, dispersed af ter the destruciion ot Jerusalem, l ave wait ed two thousand three hundred years, they can very well wait fifteen more, so 1 deferred my departure. Q. Tell us what you know of the relations which exist between your daughter Rebecca and the accused. Do you know that your daughter loves Claude Rippert? A. I know it. Was not it her duty to avow it to her father, who has always taken her into his confidence in his scientific and historical labors ? If I have persevered in searching for the eleven tribes, it has been on her account; if the constant aim of my life has been to reconstitute the kingdom of Je rusalem— Q. Let us leave on one side the kingdom of Jerusalem. This is not the place for such Utopias. A. The fact is, however, certain. The tak ing of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar Q. Witness, you can sit down. V. It Messieurs of the jury would wish any details about the eleven tiibes The pr-sident of the court here iu-errupted him. and turning to the accused asked him if he bad any objections to make as to the de position of the last witness. On the advice of his counsel he declined to question him. Here a juror interposed: Pardon, Monsieur le President, I did not e> actly understand what the witness deposed about the Sieur Nebuchadnezzar,about whom there is no question in the acte d accusation. [Roars of laughter in toe court.] M. le President (w'tb much suavity), Nebu chadnezzar was King of Nineveh. Juror: I thank Monsieur le President for having enlightened me upon the point. [He took his seat again.] Grass for Chickens. As by far the largest part of the chicken* supplying our markets are raised on large 'arms, where they have ample liberty for a 'ree range, the amount of grass consumtd jy them is not generally appreciated as much is it should be. This is one reason why so nany pci sons fail in the attempt to succeed ivilh poultry in a state of confinement. Eu ;losures are often made withont a thought of ;he relations which grass or green food has to luceess. Running at large over many acres uid helping themselves to grass at any mo nent, the breeder of ordinary observation 'ails to notice that a very large part of the 'owls’daily food—if not the largest Dart—enn lists of green toed. He feeds coni and oats >r scraps, or table refuse, and imagines iba’t -bey live on that almost exclusively, ami hence supposes and teaches that such food will also answer who rowls are confined. A trial underceives him. In preparing an euclosure f„r brcedin" in confinement, no hennery will be complete or will be even worth attempting, without a’re servation of space for grass. Iu case the fowls can be allowed a part of each dav fir a raoip. say a short time before night, the matter is of less importance. Still it is far o iter to provide pasturage for them when it can be done Something may be done on the ‘‘soiling plan’’ also, if that is deemed host. Vegetables, such as cabbages a,.d other green things which they like, may be giown for them and cut and fed to them. Their sham «ncd appetites will aid them to dispose of a ■m!fC|,inU,Unt iu a verv s*lort space of lime, cconn'nol^'w c;f,<-‘9 8Uch a plan will be more depend on „ln ,urnishinK green lood, than lo rail help ill','"1?6 or a grass plat where they dKtt?*^ btecPd ha, yet bee£ discretion as not m m P°',90ssln- so mu‘h planta iou,without"v9troy, utter,y a f?rass to-morrow.For this reLonll'1 t!!,Ve C,.alIn, of to sow grass seed in a heiMard^wlu0 fow s have access to it. If they do nu!!.' the seed out, they will eat off the'”^ shoots the moment they appear, and no mat ter lr'W great a range tLey Uav -, they prefer young grass, and will be sure to take it when the chance is offered. For this reason no amateur need expect to raise grass or vegeta bles to maturity in an enclosure where fowls are kept. In some cases, however, it may be an excellent plan to sow seeds in their yards on purpose to give them employment. Corn may he very advantageously used in this way. If deeply planted or sown, all the betlei—pro vided it is not too deep to sprout—as it gives them more work to scratch out. The leaves furnish a palatable article of green *ood, while the half decomposed kernels are peculiarly ac ceptable to the poultiy tribe. Any other grain, of course, can be sown at the same lime time. The man wlio furnishes an al un dance of employment to fowls in c nfinement, masteis at once more than half the difficulties attending it. A commodious scratching bed used iu t: is way for seeds, or for burying refuse meat, al so to be scratched out, would in every case be an important and extremely usef, I adjunct to a poultry yard, even where judicious foresight had provided, in addition, a requisite range for grass. recK 8 sewing Machine. A Mr. Peck had Ion* entertained the idea that he could invent a sewing-ma chine, anu he did. He procured a steel rib bon spring about twenty feet long, and of suf ficient power to run a horse-car. This he rig ged on his wife s sewing-machine with a lot ot clockwork, and it appeared to him, when he finished the job that evening, that he had realizi d bis hopes. If any sewing-machine ever would go that would, so he wound it up ready for u.e in the morning and went to bed- At 4 o’clock Mrs Peck aroused him and told him to listeu to the burglars in the hou'e. He listcued and beard a most terrific racket in the sitting-room. It appeared to him that there must be a million burglars re freshing themselves with a prize-fight. So he loaded his gun, ciept softly over, and peeped through a crack in the door. It was not burg jars, it was Mrs. Peck’s sewing-machine. The peg had slipped and that spring was hav ing lull play. It would rear the machine up on one end and charge it three or four times like a battering-ram against the glass front of the book-case; then it would wheel around aud suddenly tear across the room, and butt up against the mantelpiece, and it would lie down and roll over the floor, and hammer the the sofa, tear up the carpet, and boost the center-table and try and jam a hole through the wall and then endeavor to leap up on the chandelier. Then as Peck entered the room, it flew at him, and tore in and out between his legs, the wheel revolving like lightning all the time, and the spring gradually unwinding. And then Peck retreated and the family • all got up and got a mattress ofl' the bed, with which they covered the machine, aud sat on it for a while, but final’y pushed it out of the window into the yard, where Peck piled box es, and ash-barrels, and slop-buckets, and fence palings, anil wagon-wheels on it to keep it still. But all night under the heap it kept up a continual buzz at.d snort and hum, so that one of Mr- Birdsall’s boardt rs fired at it sixteen times with the impressiou that it was cats. Peck h s presented bis better half with a new sewing-machine, and he is satisfied for her to run it with her leet. He is taking a short vacation in the study of mechanics at present. From the Philadelphia Press. MacMahon—Another smoker. From some source we 1 -ara the follow ing personal particulars respecting the new President: “It is not going too far to say that he is the most popular man in the country. He lives a retired, unostentatious life; and. though he displayed extraordinary pomp when sent, a few years ago, on an embassy to Prussia, his manners are unpretending and his dress plain. He seldom appears in unifotm, and the only mark of distinction he wears is the red ribbon-(of the Legion of Honor.) His most marked characteristics are a love of children and a fondness fin study. He made a triumphal entr; into Milan (in 1850) with a little girl, who had offered him a nosegay, perched upon his bolsters He is probably as well versed in military history as Faidherbe, and is olten busy with a child and a map up on his knees. His favorite amusement is rid ing. In society be is sby. .Imoul «uul. and seems ill ut ease. He likes to saunter about the boulevard, with his bands in his pockets and a cigar eternally in his mouth, when he is not on horseback; and be is seen to most advantage at home surrounded by his fam ily.” _ S/1T ITIfTtU 4 k Vninlnn r\f rnliftnlo ibnt cleavest to man through every stage ot his be tng! iu his birth, which has been—in his life, which is—in hisdeatb, which shall be—mighty and essential solitude! that wast, and art, and art to be; thou brood*st, like the Spirit of God moving upon th? surface of the deeps, over every heart that sleeps in the nuiseiies of Christendom. Like the vast laboratory of the air, which, seeming to be nothing, or less than the shadow ot a shade, hidis n i bin it self the principles of all things, solitude for the meditating child is the Agrippa's mirror of the unseen universe. Deep is tbe solitude of millioi s who, with hearts welling forth lore, have none to love them. Deep is the solitude of i hose who, under secret griefs, baie none to pity them Deep is the solitude of those who, lighting with doubts or darkness, have none to counsel them. Blit deeper than the deepest ot these solitudes is that which broods over childhood under the passion of sorrow—bringing bpfore it, at int 'rvals, the final solitude which watches for it, and is waiting for it within the gates of death. O mighty and esseut'al solitude, that wast, and art, and art to be, thy kingdom is made per fect In the grave; but even over those that keep watch outside ihe grave, 1 ke myself, an infant of six years old, thou stretchest out a sceptre of fascination.—De Quincy.
