One of the critics thinks that the sole quali ty that makes Fechter’s reputation is his mar veiously significant gesture. “The Irish Race; its Past and Present,” is definitely given as the title of Father Thi baud's book on his countrymen. A negro at Smithland, Ky., 105 years old, “gets around quite lively for his age,” but what would be considered lively for 105 we are not told. Piety is a kind of modesty. It makes us cast down our thoughts, just as modesty makes us cast down our eyes in presence of whatever is forbidden.—Jmtbert. A rival to the Bessemer cabin has been in vented in Russia.

A man is wandering about the Jersey towns who is regarded as a lunatic because he thinks he is a mule. That ought to be re garded as an evidence of sanity In Jersey. He is probably the only man thereabouts who understands himself. It is stated on high chemical authority that the last gill of milk drawn from a cow is six teen times richer in cream than the first por tion yielded. This, as we know of it in city life, is probably the “gill” which Jack is said to have taken to get a pail of water. A prominent citizen of Washington went home, the other night, and found his fair but wicked wife enjoying the company of another nian. The husband flew into a passion, and stamped and swore, and used such ungentle manly lauguage that the intruder becamadis gusted, and left in indignation. we may De sure or tacts, but our interpre tation of facts we should doubt. He is the wisest philosopher who holds his theory with some doubt; who is able to proportion his judgment and confidence to the value of the evidence before him, taking a fact for a fact, and a supposition for a supposition; as much as possible keeping his mind free from all source of prejudice, or, where he cannot do this, as in the case of a theory, remembering that such a source is there.—M- tar a Jay. The Spectator pronounces Leconte de Lisle author of “Poemes Barbaras,” the greatest living French poet, after Victor Hugo. He delights in virgin forests, in tropical land scapes, in the royalty of wild beasts. His po ems are full of a certain luxuriant vivacity, warm color and power of imagination, such as are not found in any other French verse of receDt times. A Sunday School teacher in Hartford was surprised on St.uday last. She had been ex plaining the story ot the crucifixion to her class of boys, who seemed to take great inters est in the story. When she thought they fully understood the subject, one of them suddenly burst out and said: “By golly. I’ll bet you they wouldn’t have done it if Buffalo Bill'd been there!’’ A Good Health Sermon. At the meeting of the American Public Health Association at Cincinnati, Dr. Jarvis of Massachusetts is repor.ed as having made the following remarks, which are as compre hensive, practical and vital as any tract for the times need be: “Dr, Jarvis said that much of the ill-health of families was the result of the culpable foolishuess of bringing up girls with no idea of household work. A girl is married when she knows how to talk and sing and play in differently on the piano. She is full of poetry joyousness, aesthetic tastes, but she knows literally nothing about the details of the housework. But there she is. She may not know the difference between a raw aud boiled potato, between the flour in the barrel and in the loaf on the table, A serving woman has to be hired, and very few of th-m know real ly how to cook. A dressmaker has a regular course of training to fit her for her work, but it is supposed that any one can cook. She says to-day‘we are lucky; our bread is light and sweet.’ Would any woman toleiate a dressmaker who should say: ‘We are lucky to-dav; the dress fits well?” To-morrow the cook says: ‘We are unlucky to-day; the bread is sour and heavy.’ If a dressmaker should cut her dresses by luck rather than by system, she would quickly get her discharge. But, no; husband must sit down to the sour bread and ill-cooked meat. He will not say anything,and the guests will overlook defects and sit down in sorrow and eat their bread in bttterness. We are more sure of being well dressed than of being well fed. The outer man is tolerably sure of comfort, but the in ner man must sit down to the table with fear and trembling. The Irish girl in the kitchen is very often the cause of damage and loss in the counting room. The Irish girl makes sour bread, which makes bad blood and weak brain. The merchant goes down to the counting room weak, head aching and ener vated. He does not know what is the mat ter, but a Mephistopheies could he look into bis stomach would see the sour bread there. He believed that poverty ran through the whole man. It became part of his moral and intellectual elements. Poor food made a poor man, and the poor element) went down to his posterity. He believed staongly in hereditary transmissions, but even if they did not occur there was a fact to be noticed, namely, that if a man had nothing to transnrt, the child would have nothing. This would apply to the moral and intellectual elements as well aa to the physical condition.’’ a mew calling. There are certain ambitious, but vary im pecunious, young men who are ever on the alert for helpless old ladies at crossings in London streets. 'J he tradition is that it may hrppen a fortune may come out of a little act ot courtesy. Old ladies in London are re garded as fairy god-mothers. But a new edi tion of these street romances has just been published. Young ladies have a chance as well as young men. It appears that not long ago a blind man was crossing Regent street with a dog, and was in imminent danger of being run over by a rapid carriage. A young lady, acting on the impulse of the moment, rushed forward, gave the blind man a violent push, which sent him flying, but saved his life. The heroic act was witnessed by a wealthy old bachelor passing at the time, whs managed to get introduced, proposed and tin dly married the plucky young lady. Ever since that date other ycung ladies have wait ed eagerly at crossings to tall in with a simi lar fate. They have dodged blicd beggars all over London, and ogled a likely looking bach elor. They have prayed for an opportunity of exercising their presence of mind and se curing their fortune. This, by-the by, is all very well for the ladies, but it is rather a bore foi the beggars. A fall is better than death; but there may be eases when the tumble might altogether be dispensed with. Anecdote of Webster. At the city dinner on the Fourth of July, 1859, in Faneuil Hall, Dr. R. H. Neale, chap lain of the day turning to the picture of Webster replying to Hayne, remaiked that he spent his youthful days in Washington, wit nessing the scene there portrayed and hear ing the address in which was first uttered that great sentiment, “Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable,” and related an amusing incident which happened to Mr. Wedster just after the great speech. For f he purpose of a little relaxation, he went to Virginia with some friends. They called at a farm house and asked for some m.lk and water to drink. The good woman ot the house went to get some. Her husband, who had been intently reading a uewspaper con taining Mr. Webster's speech, asked Mr Webster, “Do you know Webster?', “Yes 1 believe Ido,” was the reply. “Well how Joes he look?” “Rather savage,” said" Mr Webstei; “they say he looks like me ” “WpIi" ire you Webster?” “Yes, they say I am.’ and I suppose it is so.” By this time the wile came in with the milk and water. “Car ry that back 1 carry that back!” said the bus )and. Phis is Daniel Webster. Make a pitch trof hailstorm—nothing but hailstorm will lo for Webster.” Hood’s Wit. Hood is the regius professor of punning in all universities. He is the greatest ot word twisiers that ever put the English language on the rack. The ingenuity he developed in (his work would have more than sufficed to originate a score of industrial inventions. He punned on everything, Deluding death and damnation Occasionally his quibbles are ghastly, as re-'pecte both the ilj ice and the handling ot Ids -objects l ait they are ever iugeni us. AH the \v.>nls in “Webster’s Un ahiidged’ l ad, lor him, two meanings. A larce [Minion oj iiis works i> a contribution 0 a punning dictionary, which, we doubt not will complete. We have allud « Shastllness of a number of Hood’s ti n JLi P0'-™8- There is a common quota 1 ,l ‘ i!:lr,'pr<‘,ents the easy passage of the ™1"d„ tr m grave to gay, from hvely to se vere. Hood was gay jn considering the grave, and lively m sketching skeletons He punned oil occasions where others prayed. He had not the rush of animal spirits which characterizes humorists like Fielding and Dickens, and which bears them triumphantly thr. ugh the most intrinsically repulsive sub jects. By defect of physical impulse and health, he jested from his brain rather than from his heart; no rich, riotous, and roariug laughter, having its source in strong lungs, ever came from this consumptive humorist. He coughed while he chuckled. This sad business was to furnish provocations to mirth in everything—even in tbe most serious and “severe’’ aspects ot human life. We call it a sad business, for we can conceive sf nothing m ire pitiful than the deliberate per petrator ol jokes, when it is known that the joker is failing every day in health, and is half broken in heart. Hood's mirth is rarely mirthful in essence, though wo.i lerfttlly in genious in form. He jests at the grave, though he feels all tbe time that be is ap proaching it. Greater humorists than he may have jested at it, because they felt im mortal life stirring in their veins and souls; but feebleness of physical stamina is every where perceived in Hood’s comic produc tions. He belonged to the race of Keats; but he turned puu iter in order to make a liv iug and support a family. He died at last with no smile on his lips, but with an aching sense that he had not. been able to provide for his wife and children, ’.hough he had been pun..ing bread into their mouths for half his life. The intellectual conditions of the true humorist were palpable in Hood; the bodily conditions were wanting, Hence the tragedy of bis life. The funniest of men was r-ally the saddeBt! His quips, and quib bles, tbe cranks and “wreathed smiles,” in dicate heartache as well as brain ache. Tbe exercise of the mind inverse is commonly called “strains.” It is plain that, as a hu morous poet. Hood was constantly straining his undf rstanding ami fancy to do job work with which his poetic soul had little sympa thy. His “strains” are woefully apparent in bis comic stanzas. His mind wa often forced into sn activity which his feelings go often repudiated.—E. P. Whipple. Waiting for a Chance. It is some time now since the sight-seeing public have been favored with the exhibition of a lion tamer devoured by the beasts he has tamed, but it seems piobable that we shall not have to wait long for a pleasing catastro phe of this nature, which, unless it occasion ally occurred, w juld ol c >i rie make tLe exhi bition even tamer than the lions. The Brae mer coi respondent of the Dundee Advertiser mentions that a few days ago a menagerie was exhibited at that place. During the last performance of the evening “Lambetti, the liou tamer,” was in the cage with the male lion, putting the animal through the ..sual exciting exercise, when he slipped and fell just as “the king of beasts” was boundii g past him. He almost immediately tegained his footing, and evidently not a moment too soon, for the fierce brute gave an enraged roar, and seemed ready to spring upon him. By accidental contact with the lion’s paw bis trousers were lorn, and bis leg slightly scratched. His coolness was remarkable. Motioning to the assistant, who rushed with a sliding partition to the cage, to keep back, he slowly m >ved to the wicker, and before leaving, thanked the 'audience for their at tendance. The affair, it is stated, produced a painful sensation, which was not lessened by the apparent rage of the lion, when he saw that his victim had escaped. In the fall the performer lost a revolver, with which he was armed, the weapon being subsequently found among the straw. Altogether there must have been quite enough excitement to render the exhibition we I worthy the patronage of the inhabitants ofBraemar, but M. Lambetti will, it is to be hoped, so arrange matters as not to be devoured in an obscure Scotch vil lage when thousands of educated persons in the “centres of civilization” will esteem it a privilege to witness his consumption by “the king of beasts.”—Pall Mall Gazette.
