llio soared boy, tlio lugs of ihumoii who

tlio folds of thu cloth or paper upon

common scone is that of a number of
old ami young puophi clustered closely
under thu foliage of a largo troo. Thoy

storm of wind and rain tltat i.s pouring
down upon a drenched fellow whose
umbrella is torn in tattur.s by thu wind,
and who is making for the shelter of

ly a subject for tin jest and laughter
of tltosu who are watching his progress,
thus illustrating human nature accord
ing to ltuolinfoiicnuld. who say?, "that

much philosophy." In some of
sketches a few lines suggest a groat

familiar to all who have been on our
coast in tho early spring.
Upon another fan a very fat fisher
man is represented nearly up to his
middle in water ami wielding a not
lai'go enough to catch a porpoise or a
rihark, whim ho drags behind him a
little llshboat hardly largo ouough to
hold a minnow; thu expression of Ids
face is, however, comical and sufliciunt
ly determined tor a shark. Tho most
busy scene is that of thu mouso-mer- '
chants. Thoso aro grouped together '
in very natural positions. In tlio foro- I
ground aro tho merchants looking over i
the invoice of the goods, which is hand
ed them by their chief clerk. Holdiid
them aro tho laborers, who aro rolling
bales of goods and piling them up
some threo or four tiers high. On the '
ton of tho pilo sits a olorlc who, with a
tablet in ids hand, is comparing the
numbers and weights on each bale, ami :
is calling tlioni oil to another clerk who j
sits below on the ground tier, and who i
is looking to tho clerk above to bo suro '
that he hoars correctly before ho puts
them down on his own tablet. .In tlio
Imok-grouiid is a weigher and a servant '
bringing roireshnionts. Thoy aro all
clad In various colored coats and vests, '
but tho nuthur garments aro omitted in
order to leave the tails troo to twist
about in mouse fashion. The expression i
of each mouse is, however, different,
and well represents the age and grtnity
of tlio merchants, tho dignity and im
portance of the chief-clerk, the youth
ful and jolly bearing of tho younger
ones, ono of whom .seems to bo trying
tlio patience and tho correctness ot tho
account of tho others perhaps to
cause mistake- which may result in his
own promotion; a base lino of conduct
that has been attribulud to officers high
in civil and military lifo.
Another scene is of a very different
character, but still open to evil surmis
es. A rich old lady is seated on the
floor of a largo, apartment counting her
treasures, either of money, or jewels,
with her back to a largo window or
opening, where two figures aro dimly
Been dressed up as native or foreign
devils and with masks on thoir faces.
Siio is looking over her shoulder with
much alarm and has loft oil counting
her treasures, but withono hand placed
over them, in order to conceal them
from tho masked thhnos standing with
out, and in llio vain hope to save them.
Hut tho crowning and most comical
econo is that of tho migration of a largo
family, consisting-of father and mother
with thirty-two children; perhaps thirty-throe
can bo made out; probably the
parents if questioned could not toll tho
numbor themselves. Thoy aro cross
ing tho ford of a shallow stream which
apparently allows but two to cross
abreast. In front is tho father, a very
fat, good-natured follow, with a huge
bud whi'h ho carries on lop of hid head.
On this arc two of tho children, qitito
eomfortnblo, and looking down with
I'oinjihicency tipon their struggling wet
brothers and sisters. Two more nro
holding by the skirts of his scanty gar
ments, but up to their knees in water.
Next comes the wife, a diminutive per
son compared wilh "paler fnmilias,"
but, as is natural witli such a family,
she has a worried expression. She is
carrying one child on her back, per
haps a sick ono, with his logs in front
of Iter which sho is holding. A long
train is following alter her by couples,
except two of the older boys, who are
in deepor water and are" carrying a
sick hrothet', and a bundle of provisions
strung across a pole and borne on their
shoulders. There is, howuvur, trottblo
in llio camp; one littlu.'ullow hasslippud
oil' into deeper water, and lie is ening
with one list in his eye. ami the other
held out for assistance, which is about
lo be grasped in order to got him back.
An older brother, who has apparently
been crowded o.l', is biting the hinder
part of the brother who did tho crowd
ing. The last one in the procession is
a ltttlo fellow, who i.s holding hack ami
seems afraid of stopping into thu water
at all, but he is encouraged by. those in
trout, who tiro holding out hands to
him. It would suein as if the father
should compel ono of tho follows on the
bed to I'haugu places with him. only a
halt or any change of plan would throw
the whole line into confusion. The fa
ther scorns, however, wellsatislied with
tho arriiMgomonts and i.s evidently
proud of his family. He seems to bo in
no wise disturbed as lo wa".sand means,
or how he is to accommodate himself,
wife ami thirty-three children on thu
bed he carries, it is their sillair, to bo
sine, but it i.s somewhat dillicult to ac
count for tho, number of tho family, as
none of them soein to be over ten. or
twelve, and none under fivo or six years
of age. It is to be hoped that thoy all
got safely over the river and found a
dry place in which lo denosit tlio bod
and make the boys and girls comfort
able. The one bci' would, however,
.seem to be as inadequate for their com
fort tis tho small package of provisions
would bo for their appetites. In this
inadequacy of means to ends thu humor
probably consists.
In animal life tlio .Japanese aro truo
to nature. Often only a fow linus aro
suHluient to delineate a fedi or a fowl, a
stork, a humming-bird, a frog or a
flounder. In landscape, and in dis
tance, thoy have no idea of perspective.
Ladies swing in the air, but how they
over got into tho swing, or how thoy
aro over to got out of it without break
ing thoir nodes, it i.s dillicult to dis
cover. Thu same thing i.s represented
in pagodas and summer-houses, which
aro perched up among trees, or over
them; but there intitl be some way of
getting down not perceptible to " bar
barian" eyes, for tho ladies have a most
sercno and placid expression, as if there
was no diillculty in the matter, or uvea
a necessity of folding their fans. This
placidity .seems to bo ehara-torislio
wherever they aro. In their domestic

i calm and lofty indifference, the per
fect, "nonchalance" of the Japaueso
ladies is equal to those of any "barba
rian" lady of England, Franco or Amur

probably no machinery used in tho
manufacture, or only wiiat is vorv sim

School Hours.
Tho Joitrim' of JCdinutliou, basing its
estimates upon 'tho number of hours
given in various studies in eighteen
loading public schools, calculates that
the average number of hours a week in
an English public school Is about twumy
sl, -as against thirty-one in a gymnasi
um, and mrty In a lycee. Reckoning
tho hours of preparation, and taking
into account tlo holidays, wluyh aro at
least twice as long in Kngland as thov
are on the Continent, it finds that the
working hours of an English, Gorman
and French boy in secondary schools
aro in tho ratio of live, eight and cloven.
As to tho subjects taught, though there
aro now tow public sohpols in which
science teaching is wholly ignored,
classics still form the staple of our edu
cation. An Knglish lower school boy
givos fourteen hours a week, or more
than half his time to classics', 'a Wench
tycoon devotes twonty-oiglit hours a
week, for his iirst three years, to his
native tongue; ho does not begin Latin

third that is, till ho has been six years

It is a wild and solitary place to
spend tho winter, which and
his wife with a yuing lady compan
ion did for th' first time last win
ter, and in this connection ho told me
a bear story. He said Unit after visit
or ceased coming lo the I'ark last fall
ho wont to Virginia Citv for his winter
supplies, leaving his wife, children and
the young woman in charge of thu place.
Near the lion jo, in the rear, was situ
ated a dug-out or root-house, where ho
stored his potatoes, etc.. to keeptliem
from freezing, and to ventilate which
lie used a joititof -tovepine. One morn
ing during his abseil -o his wife looked
out of I ho window and saw a bear pull
ing down thu pipe and Irving to dig in
to tho ioot-houe, in which they had al
so stored most ot their provisions. The
women were at their wits1 end as to
what course to pursue. They at lirst
threw tin cans I mm the windows and
managed to disturb Uruiii lor a fow
moments, but in- soon returned, as ho
had already sullied the good things of
that ground cellar, and lie did not pro
pose to bo scan-d oil' with tin cans.
Airs. Marshall, brave euutigh to be loft
alone, did not intend in have till o her
provisions taken before her eyes, and
proposed to load the rillo if her com
panion would lire it at thu bear, which,
being complied with, si good charge
was soon placed in the gun, which was
laid across tlio window-sill and dis
charged tit his liearship, but the aim,
not being accurate, did not strike him
in a vital part, although his actions
showed that ho was hit. Ho retreated
to the hillside, sat upon his haunches,
took a view of the situation, and then
disappeared in the bushes, where ho
remained. The women wure not salis
lied, and thoy went after that bear--a
very imprudent Hung, to say thu least;
but nevertheless, they went, for (,as
thoy ovpressud it) they were afraid he
might come back again in the night,
and, as they were Milisticd ho was
wounded, thoy wanted to linisii him.
Loading tho rifle again, thoy wont
cautiously up the hillside, until they
discovered the beir standing in a small
clearing, when the women prepared lor
action by laying the gun across a log
and takingdelincrato aim, hitting tho
animal behind the loreshouldcr, when
he came rolling down the hill. Tho
women did not slop to see whether the
bear was rolling or running they im
agined tlio latter -and both ran for
dear lifo, dropping tho gun as thoy
went for thu house, winch they reached
before casting a glance in tho rear.
When safe in the house they took a
view of the situation, and could seo
bruin doubled up and giving his last
kick. He linally became quiet, and
thoy ventured out and got possession of
their gun, which was loaded, and a
third charge put. into tho bear to make
suro ho was not playing 'possum. When
Marshall caino homo he weighed the
bear, and it brought down tho
beam to three hundred and lifty pounds,
lie tells the .story of tho action of the
brine women with a great deal of
pride, and tlio young woman who did
tho shooting lias become qeile a heroine.

Haying a Hig Herd of Cattle.
Tim Foley, tho Leadvillo millionaire,
who u.-ed to livo here, was considerable
of a humorist in his way. He don't
lay any great claim to hilarity in a
literary way, but ho can tell you' thing-
that have ocurrod to him personally
that would mako vou roll over in tho
tall grass and howl with mirth. 1
Some years ago Tim had a bunch of
cattle up north, and learning that
Frewon Hrothers had more money than
they wanted, he decided to soil tothem.
Tho Frowen Hrothers were just o for
lrom Kngland at that time and hadn't
learned the wild, peculiar ways of these
uncouth people of the They
came to Voming as civilier.s, so to
speak, bringing with thorn the air of
refinement and culture from their for
eign homo. It looked odd to the old
tinier hero in the mountains to i-eo a
pair ot blooded cusses, with hollow,
.esthetic chests, and pants that were
too short. Nothing cmld seem more
queer than two noblo sons of Albion,
with eye-glasses anddispepsia, starting
a cattle ranch on tlio frontier, and tlio
boys had a good dual of inn over it.
Foley found out that the Fro wens
had about r-l.dOO on hand that they
wanted to squander in bulls, so ho
tackled them and told them that ho had
about enough to make the sum an oeu
thing for his herd. Tlio Frcwens wore
taken out to tho baso of a big hill and
stationed where the herd could bo
driven by them while thoy tallied them.
Foley lixud it so that a herd of a hun
