La Tonibe et la Rose.
La tombe dit a la rose ;
"Des pleurs dont l'aube t'arrose,-
Que fais-tu, fleur des amours?"
La rose dit a la tombe :
"Que fais-tu de ce qui tombe
Dans ton gouffre ouvert toujour?
La rose dit : 'Tombeau sombre,
De ces pleurs je fais dans Poinbrc
Un parfum d'ambre et di mlel." '
La tomVe dit : "Fleur plaintive,
De chaque ame qui m'arrive
Je fais uu anj;e du ciel !"
THE TOMB AND THE ROSE.
The tomb said to the rose :
"With the dews that on thee repose
What dost thou, amorous floyver?"
The rose said to the tomb?
"What dost thou with those whom dom
Consigns to thy depths every houi?"
The rose said : "Solemn tomb.
Of the dews I make in the gloom
A perfume of amber and sweet."
The tomb said : "Plaintive flower.
For every seul in my pe-wer
An auel in heaven I seat."

Poetry is Diviut laiijjunge, yet
not in the fecnso th.it we uii.lcrt md
by it what the Divine liiin.4 in llitn
sJlf I'ouls an 1 utters; whuicvei- was
oiren to the most jod-like men, even
though a higher intliience, to feel and
experience in themselves, was still
human. If we kiit-w more of the psy
chological ami historical circumstan
ces connected with these higher iu
Uucikcs, un I with the intercourse of
the Eioiiim with the lir&t clnl iien of
creation, we might, peruana give also
a more tleliuiXc couchision lvspcciinj
the origin of iheir huiguaye and mo.io
of representation. But siuec the most,
aiicienl history of the human mind
has denied us this, wc must argue
irotu the tllVct to tiie cause, from the
outward working to the inward form
of feeling, and thus we treat of the
origin ol poetry only as human.

ISOISFT IPOHG-jES8!3 THE
sigc I5Bros.9 IPlattsiuoutla, Meb,
For Vice-President of the United States,
GEN. CHESTER A. ARTHUR,
It is not temper, as exhibited in the
shape of violent passion, that has the
most pernicious influence on human
comluct an. i happiness; it is temper,
under the shape of a cool, deliberate
spite and secret rancor, tint is most to
be guarded against, "it is the taunt
ing word whose meaning kills." The
speech intended to mortify one's self
love, or woun I our lendercst Direc
tions ; it is temper un ler this garb that
i4 most hatc.ul and moit pernicious ;
when hiilL tin i a series of petty inju
ries wiili a i.ui d and placid face, then
is temper toe most hideous and dis
gustitig. Tiij violence of passion,
when over, o.icn subsides into affec
tionate repent nice, and is easily dis
arm, d oi its i-ll" n-ivc power; but no
ihin.' ever d.siinu the other sort of
temper. Iu f.oiuctic life it is to one's
mind what a horsehair shirt is to the
body; mil, like the spikes of an iron
girdle, whenever it moves it lacerates
an i tears one to pieces.
A Habit cf Complaint.
There are some unhappy people who
arc never cheerful who are always
under a cloud. Now we may be born
with a melancholy temperam lit, but
that is no reason why we should yield
to it. There is a way of shutlliug
the burden. In the lottery of life
there are more prizes drawn than
b anks, and to one misfortune there
are fifty advantages. Despondency is
tiie most unprofitable feeling a man
can have. O.ie yood, hearty laugh is
a bombshell exploding in the right
place, while spleen and discontent are
a gun that kicks over the man who
shoots it off. Then give over com
plaining. Take outdoor exercise and
avoid late suppers if you would have
u cheerful disposition. The habit of
complaint finally drops into peevish
ness, and people become waspish and

An interesting experiment in ncrvo
grafting has been performed by a Bu
charest physician. He removed a por
tion of the sciatic nerve of a fowl and
replaced it by a similar portion of the
sciatic nerve of a rabbit. Tho ends
soon united, and the fowl's leg com
pletely recovered its power.

For welding iron and steel a com
position has lately been patented in
Kuropc, of iron filings forty parts,
borax twenty parts, balsom of co
paiba or some other resinous oil two
parts, and sal-ammoniac, three parts.
They are mixed, heated and pulver
ized. The process of welding pro
ceeds as usual, the surfaces to bo
welded are powdered with tho com
position and then brought to a cherry
red heat, at which the powder melts,
when the portions to be united are
taken from the lire and joined.
The ltov. Dr. Haughton, of Trinity
College, Dublin, has completed an
exhaustive discussion of the law that
regulates fatigue in men and animals,
when fatigue ensues as the result of
work. lie concludes that at the
time when fatigue stops the work,
the product of the total work done,
into the rate at which the work is
performed, is a constant quantity.
in other words, the result of muscular
exertion is inversely proportional to
the rate at whieh it is accomplished.
Also the quantity of work done varies
us the square root of the time occu
pied in, performing it.
Sawdust can be converted into a
liquid wood, and, afterwards, into a
solid, flexible, and almost lnacstruc
tiblo mass, which, when incorporated
with animal matter, rolled an i dried,
can be used for the most delicate im
pressions, as well as for the formation
of solid and durable articles, in the
following manner : Immerse the dust
of any kind of wood in dilute sul
phuric acid, sufficiently strong to af
fect the fibre, for some days; the finer
parts are then passed through a sieve,
well stirred and allowed to settle.
Drain the liquid from the sediment,
and mix the latter with a proportion

If a small bit of camphor is laid
upon water it begins turning and
moving about with great rapidity.
If a few grains of lycopodiutnor other
light powder have been previously
scattered on the water, they are drawn
toward the camphor by eddies in an
inverse direction. These phenomena
were observed, in 1718 by Romicu
Caasamnjor has, says Les Moiules, re
sumed the study of the question,
and adopted the views of Itomien.
He instances the following crucial
experiment : At the same lime that
the bits of camphor are thrown upon
the water, insert a glass rod which
lias been rubbed with flannel; the
motion immediately stops. If the elec
tric iy is removed from the rod by rub
bing it with tinfoil it loses its power
of checking the eddies.

A list of amusing forfeits, which
will make the company laugh and not
offend the person called upon to pay
them, are herewith given :
First Put a newspaper on the floor
in such a way that two person can
stand on it and not be able to touch
each other with their hands. By put
ting tho paper in the doorway, one
half inside and the other half outside
the room, and closing the door over it,
the two persons can easily stand upon
it and be beyond each other's reach.
Second To go out of tho room with
two legs and come in with six. Not
difficult if one thinks to bring a chair
along on the return.
Third To act tho dumb sorvauL
The person who has the forfeit to pay
must act out the answers to the ques
tions put by the master of ceremonies,
as "How do you make bread?" "How
do you eat soup?" etc. This forfeit
will cause much merriment If proper
questions are put.
Fourth Put ono hand where the
other cannot touch it. One can get
out of this difficulty by putting ono

The murderer of to-day is generally
dubbed insane ; but it is odd how un
erringly your insano murderer picks
out the very person he want3 to wreak
hi9 vengeance on. The dangeroua
lunatics in the asylum don't select
their victims with such judgment.
They would just as soon kill one man
as another, and sometimes a little rath
er. Tho insane murderer discrimi
nates, he calculates, be works up hU
fit at the most timely moment, and ho
wastes no force on poonio tht he has
no grudgo against. No hap-hz.trd-killing
for him. His victims are se
lected witli great care, and his killing
is generally done symmetrically and
successfully. Ah, the insane murder
er is the very upper crust ot insanity.
He makes his mark in the world.
He does not live in vaiu.
