Thiit thdro Is ii comic element in tlio Japanese ohnractur is manifest in thoir designs upon llio common painted fans, Homo of which will bear a cloit oxiuiii liation. Tho most common art) tlio.su in which a lingo dragon wilh forinida l)lo tooth, i.s .scon in pursuit of a hiiiuII iioy wlto i.s running lor dear lifo; but lest the sympathies ot tlio publieshould he too strongly enlisted in liuliaif of llio soared boy, tlio lugs of ihumoii who opcrato the dragon nro msoii honcath tlio folds of thu cloth or paper upon which the dragon is painted. Another common scone is that of a number of old ami young puophi clustered closely under thu foliage of a largo troo. Thoy .seem to be well sheltered trom thu 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 thotrcu; in thu ineantinioho is evident 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 wo bear the misfortunes of otliers with much philosophy." In some of tlie.se sketches a few lines suggest a groat leal, and show art Nfujskilfthough tho nro rudely ami roughly drawn. For insianco, a thick, log at sea is ropro houtod by two or threo sails showing thick. log at sea is above thu fog, while the vessel and , ciuwiiracuiioeaiyu ueuciuu u; a scenu 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 HmicSt vmi thovaro surrounded with beautiful fabrics and ca'led iiiioii to I make a choice of silks and satms not a particle of feminine enthusiasm i.s man U'ested, and tho elaborate dressing of ( tlio hair is loft to the servants, without 1 the requisition of a mirror to satisfy their vnuitv. In this respect tho 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 , ica. Hut foreign fashions aro coming , in; tlio vices as woll sis the virtues of . civilization. Who will care to visit China or .Japan when cocked hats, 1 ohapeau bonnets, pull-back dresses aro worn by ladies, and "all aboard" called out by the native conductors'.1 Japan ese fans and sunshades will then bo , rarities, the mnuufacturo will cease, and they will bo preserved as curiosi ties ol past ages. Consider the time ' and trouble it must cost to make thoso ; articles, tho cost, of importation and I duties, and then the low price at whtah ! they aro sold in our markets. There is probably no machinery used in tho manufacture, or only wiiat is vorv sim ile; the work must bo done by hand; .jut when our scale of prices roach Chi na and Japan, and new openings lor labor aro supplied, fans cannot be sold for live cents which, if thoy could be made here at all, would cost ten times ten. The labor paid for one dav's work horo would support a .Japanese or a Chinese for one week.--A'. IVinslow, in vnwiiian i man. 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 tin mo secoml period, or Urock till tlio third that is, till ho has been six years at school. Honts and tho necessaries of lifo are increasing in price in all tho largo cities. A Yellowstone Hear Slory. Tlio Fire Ilolo Jlotoi is located on tlio westsido of tho lower btc-in at the foot of the mountain, near a good spring of water, and from which cmi bo had a lino view of tlio valley. Marshall, tho proprietor, has a thirty cars' lease from the Government, and will add to Ids house as the business of the public demands. This is theon'y house in llio Park bu-ddu tho one at tho entrance. It is a wild and solitary place to spend tho winter, which M.ir-diall 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 lou.id 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.

Mroukliju Eaylc. 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 We.st. 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 dred or so, by judiciously revolving it around that hill, counted up high enough to make 81,00-) worth of cattle, and then ho told the borders to drive them over the range K'hind the hill. This goes .o siiow that by using a .100- loot lull judiciously it can be worked 111 at a good price. Foley no doubt ill in at about ."?-. 000 and worKoii tutu nil it ilidu t cost him a cent either If wo could work off a range of sand hills at ' -" l!ltt!. 1 would ceas and make s attractive that rate, and get cash for them, wu use to write abstruso editorials some money in this new and attractive stvlo for two or three sum mors, and then go to F.uropo and visit tiie crowned heads.
