LYING IN BED.
A Most IVful Hat .Netflected Art.
It Is the Too Early Worm That Octs
One of the mout useful, yet neglectod, of all
tho arts Is that of lying in bed. The damage
that id done by persons getting up is pant all
reckoning. Ail the mischief ami crime, the
counterfeiting and forgery, the murder and
thtft, arc perpetrated by parties who perniutin
getting up What mau wa ever dunned by a
creditor, bad bis eye put in mourning by a too
clone proximity with dome one's fist, broke his
leg ou a slippery pavement, was run over by
an omnibus, who lay in bed?
Vhit great acLiovements have been accompli-hod
in war, in poetry, in literature, by
gouiiiii abod! What noble thoughts have boeu
bom between tho shoots, and, once, delivered
from their authors' brains, gono, Jc-hn-liko,
whistling down the race-course of time! ''Com
ing events on! thiir tdiadows before" one of
the most rartnorable lines in tho English lan
guageoriginated with the gin-loving poet,
Tom Campbell, one morning before he had
arisen. IDngfellow thought out that exquisite
poem, "Tho Vrock of the Hesperus, " after he
had retired. Don Franklin said, "Early to bed
and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy,
and wiso." Now, Franklin startod out all
right, but got terribly mixed when ho said
fcuarlv to rise." 'There is tho fatal mistake.
People who rise early are sure to catch tho
malaria; the ground is full of half-hatched
poisonous germs; the sun is not np, aud has
not warmed them into life, given them wings
and sent them adrift, l'oor, misguided mau,
ho arises, inhales them all; they fructify ana
poison his entire system ; honce, chills, fever,
malaria, and half the ills that human fltfsb is
"Kise before the eun,
And make a breakfast of the morning dew,
Herved up by nature on some grassy trill;
You'll find it nectar."
Was ever more arrant nonsense written?
Fancy a man getting up on a cold, rainy morn
ing and climbing one of the high hills about
Cincinnati on an empty stomach, and leaving
his" French coffee and hot rolls, poached eggs
and oyster stew, to eat, what? Why, dew.
How long would that follow last? Wouldn't
he be a fit candidate for Lougviow, and no
Questions asked? But, the early bird catches
the worm. Yes, but the sharp boy knooked
that del union in the head forever and eternally
when he said: "Father, there's the point; what
in thunder did tho worm get up so early for V"
Ha trilled with dostiny; ho tempted fate; h
should not have done it That boy was a bone
factor to the human race, lie .was sound ou
the lie-abod question.
Tho Fronoh proverb says Da lit a la table, de
la table au lit "from bod" to grub, from grub to
bed." That's something like it 3et up and
eat, eat and go to bed again. Why not? All
the animals do it AU nature, the grand
mother of us all, teaches it Every animal in
the world eats and seeks repose. The oow
oats, and lying down placidly chews her cud:
tho anaoon'da swallows an ox, horns and all, and
goes to sleep "sleep that knits up the ravel
ed sleeve of care ;the birth of each day'a life,
eore labor's bath, balm of hurt minds: great
nature's secoud course ; chief nourisher in fe'a
feast" And yet this is what they would de
prive us of who say get up, und who oppose
the art of lying abei.
A Spanish minister, suddenly raised to
powor, signalized the event by going to bed
aud staying there for fear that he might have
somothiug to do. It was in bed, at the little
inn at Waterloo, that tho duke of Wellington
received the list of the terrible casualties of
tho ratal ISth of July. Gray's "Ode to Musio"
was written in bod, and Sam Johnson's "Lobo's
Voyage to Abyssinia" was dictated to the
printers before the great author of the "Lives
of tho Poets" aud lexicographer had arisen.
Peter Pindar (Dr. Wolcott) was so fond of ly
ing abod that ho received his visitors beneath
spreads and counterpanes. Rossini wrote one
of his finest operas in bed, and was too lazy to
rick up a sheet that had fallen away. George
V. lay in bed to read the newspapers, and
Maeaulay read twenty pages of Schiller before
getting up. John Foster thought out his ser
mons in bed, and the methodical Anthony
Trollops used to read an hour before getting
up. Cynical Pope wrote:
"I wake at night.
Fools come into my head and oo I wrie."
Mrs. Macbeth strikes" the key-note when she
shouts, "To bed! to bed!" People hunt the
world over for pleasure, indulge in all sorts of
mad pranks in their search for reoroation and
repose, roam from the North pole to the
Southern Cross, penetrate African jungles and
freeze with Siberians and Laplanders, climb
tho Alps, swelter at Saratoga and Long Branch
in pursuit of pleasure. Alas! they seek hap
piness where it is not, and neglect It where it
Is iu Led
Protecting tli Obelisk.
Thero is a move oa foot to provide
suitable means for protecting the obelisk in
Central park, New York, from injury from
changes of tho weather. Ono party suggests
that it be inclosed in a glass case, and another
wants to see an immense museum built around
it with a tower for the obelisk to stand up in.
It is not known as yet what will be dono,' but
ic is pretty certain that the obelisk will have
some sort of a protection, if it is not more than
a tariff or a liver pad
AnKftVetive Iturslar Trap.
A country store keeper in Connecticut hav
ing been annoyed by robberies of tho contents
of his cash drawer, lately contrived the follow
ing trap: lie arranged iu the floor a trap door
which perfectly matched the boirds of the
door. In tho day time the door was securely
fastened, but at Iiight on leaving th 6tore a

The Passion for l-lveriea.
Most of the weaithy society ladies, says a
New York letter writer, have hitherto content
ed themaelves with half livery for their coach
man and footman and a white vest and swallow-tail
coat for the butler-, but tfcis winter a
more, clabprte costuue has boen introduced
Hundreds of pairs of Parisian top boots nave
been imported for coachmen and footmen, who
have heretofore worn their boots inside tueir
trousers, and Mrs. William Iv. Vandorbiit has
taken the lead in putting her servants into full
European costume, hroechos, silk stockings,
ample vest, und long, full coat of the shad
stomached variety, and a Uttie linen picaet
under each ear. The many colors of
the French flunkey are superseued by
& uniform claret, broken only by white
silk stockings, I have never seen such a her
aldic fronzy as prevails here now. Carriage
doors have suddenly blossomed out in bright
colors red and blue sud green hous ram
pant, eagles flippant, aud held argent with
wattled gules, and all sorta of cottises and
quartering. Several old industries have

Accordingly I soon found myself bowing be
fore this modern Adonis, who, having been
wound up and set going by some judicious
questions and remarks from my friend, began
learnedly discussing the merits of his wares.
Ladies softly glided into the shop and quietly
grouped themselves about us, listening with
admiring awe to the words of wisdom which
fell from his ruby lips. While they were im
bibing high art with every breath of the sur
rounding atmosphere. I took note of the per
sonal appearance of the authority in art circles.
If you will picture to yourself an esthetic
parrot, with a choice sunplo of china in bis
claw, one eye closed, while, with head on one
aide, he gazes knowingly on the scrap of china
with the other eye and discnurses wisely about
aesthetic merits, you have the Rochester ideal

slender form. He fitted his raiment as though
he were made for it ! Out of it rose a swan
hko throat and neck, supporting a wonderfully
fair hoad and face; tho hair a faint straw color;
the complexion transparently clear; his eyes
growing dark or paling according to his inter

sharp Roman nose, drooped like a parrot's
beak over a delicate and sensitive mouth, as
gracefully curved as a Cuuid's bow. Dazzling
white teeth finish up tho conquest, when hav
ing ended his elegant remarks, he pauses with
a languid ir and allows bis rosy lips to close
in a benevolent and condescending smile.
Tho unfortunate women suddenly awake to
the consciousness that they are gazing into the
violet eyes, rather than "on the tea-cup en

slender white hand. This, he said, was 'bis

I asked to see a dinner service, whereupon
Adonis inquired with eager interest whether
my house was of Eastlake or Oothio architec
ture and was my dining-room furnished after
the old English "or French btyle. Would I al
low him to call and see tho houso before he
ventured to suggest the form, quality or color
of the ware to be used? With true western
hospitality I assured him that nothing would
give me greater pleasure than to receive a visit
from him, but that he would have rather a
long journey to tako, as I lived in California.
This seemed to puzzlo him for a few brief
seconds, but he soon rallied and rose equal to
Smiling sweetly, he remarked that if I would
allow him to see the plans of the house that
with my description of the furniture and some
small samples of the carpets and hangings, he
thought we should soon arrive at something so
satisfactory and harmonious that the whole
would become a symphony in form and color.
"For," continued Adonis, "as the higher
forms of architecture are 'like frozen music,'
so may wo, make poetry of our common daily
surroundings, provided there is perfect har
mony in tone.''
Just then I felt my brain reel, undoubtedly
caused by the fatigue of a long journey.
Grasping my friend's hand, I murmured some
inaudible thanks and hastened out for a breath
of fresh Air.

Adonis says there is no reaeon why the potp,

old-fashioned shining brass tea-kettle into
nearly all the better class of families in Roch

into the drawing-room during tho evening,
where they serve hot tea in artistic little cups,

to correspond with the surxoundings.

likes to make a little society for that specific
purpose, and to have the proper officers and a
suitable number of members. After the or

and printed in a neat pamphlet, ho is ready to
go to work. Iu this way he multiplies societies
for charitable as for all other purposes. For
each misery and misfortune the city has its
separate relief. It has a home for old men and
another for old women, and another still for
married old men and women, and will yet,
perhaps discriminate between the old man who
is a bachelor and the ono who is a widower.

BETTING ON A CERTAINTY.

In the British army in

to an extreme of vice
that is sometimes fearful to contemplate. Per
haps it is no worse than in club life in Lon
don, where the most amusing as well as tragi
cal stories are told of the curious bets that are
made. Betting on a certainty is held to be un
fair, unless the avowal is distinctly made, so
that no undue advantage is taken.
An officer in the army had imported for his
private apartments a new and beautiful ma
hogany table. A day or two after it had ar
rived and had been duly iustalled iu his quar
ters, a brother officer, a great swell and very
unpopular, dropped in familiarly, and greatly
admired the Leautiful table. The owner was
Shaving himself at tho glass with his back to
his visitor Colonel Brown but continued the
conversation until the colonel withdrew, the
latter remarking that ho hoped soon to have his
'H under that elegant mahogany.
The owner of the table, whom we must call
Major Jones, made up a little dinner party iu
the course of a few days, and Colonel Brown
was one of the number. It was natural that
Ute new table should be the subject of remark.
and Brown, who affected to be a connoisseur
in all matters, said the table was perfect, with
j ones Ana pray wnat is mat, ceionei?
Brown It is just a little too high.
Jones Do you think so? How high would
you suppose it to be?
urowu l presume it is the usual height,
ust thirty-six inches, and it oucht to be less
than that bv at least half an inch.
Jones That is the exact height, thirty.
five and a half inches, not thirty-six as you
Airown A'ardon me. 1 am certain it is throe
feet high; I will make you a bet ou it
Jones You will lose if you do, for I give
you notice that I know it's exact hoight to half
an inch, and if I bet I shall bet on a dead cor
tainty. JJrown I am lust as sure as you are; I am
hotting on a certainty also; my eye never de
ceives me. 1 will lay you a hundred or a thou
sand pounds that this table is thirty-nix inches
high ; uo more, no less.
The major thouirht to dissuade hit euest from
his purpose of making a bet, assuring him that
he know the height of the table, and did not
want to beton a certainty, but, when tho ex
citement grew furious, the wagorl was finally
laid at an enormous sum I havo heard it
stated as high as $50,000 10,000. That
seems preposterous, when suoh a trifle was the
subject, but the gambling spirit does not stick
at trifles. When the betting was finally ar
ranged, Ool. Brown exclaimed, exultingly, "I
told you I knew the table was exactly thirty
six inches high; I did know it.Jbecause when I
called, just after it arrived, I took its measure
on my cane as I sat by it, and after I went out
1 measured, and round it to be, as i have said,
precisely thirty-six inches high."
"Yes.'' said Major Jones, "I was sitting with
my back to ytm, but 1 was shaving before the
looking-glass, ana i saw yeu taking tne meas
ure of the table with; your cane. Suspecting
that you were preparing for a bet as to its
height, after you left I had half an inch taken
ot, and it is now precisely thirty-five and a
half inches bigu."
Tho applause that followed this result was
tremendous, and completed the discomfiture
of the unpopular ooloueL It was evident that
he had beon laying a plan to cheat, and would
have pocketed the money if he had won. He
was sent to Coveutrv. He sold his commis
sion and returned to England, being unable to
stand up against the contempt of the officers,
who thoroughly despised his character.

Longevity of IVild Animals.
Two hippopotamuses have recently died in
the London Zoological garden. One was
twenty-seven years in confinement, the other
thirty, but, of course, their actual age can
never be known. Indeed, it is difficult to tell
whether the wild animal lives as long as the
domestic one. At one time the test was the
length of time required to reach maturity,
which it was assumed, bore a certain urODor-
tion to the life of the creature. But this does
not hold cood with even the larger mammalia,
for a horse, assuming it to be mature at four
rears, will live to live or six "maturities,"
while man. presuming him to be mature at
twenty, rarely reaches four. Dogs enjoy
creator lousevitv than mankind, aud a cat's
life is proverbially tenacious. It cannot be
proved that even wild auim.ds have their lives
shortened by confineme.it Indeed, it is rea
sonable to suppose that the care given to ani
mals in menageries prolongs their existence.
The civilized man certainly lives longer than
the savage, who is exp-jed to th barjrbips
and vicissitudes of a rough out-dcor existence.
