"O, smile as thou wert wont to smile,"
sang the idol of little Toddlekin's soul
one evening as he sat on tho lounge in
the parlor. He had recently at her
earnest request sworn off tho use of in
toxicating fluids. As she repeated tho
refrain he looked up calmly with a
strange, far-off look in Ids thirsty eje
and leached for his hat. "You don't
know, Maria; 3011 don't know," said
little Toddlekin, "what a weight that
song has lifted from my heart." He
smiled again that evening a3 he was
wont, but she never again sang so
touching a ballad.
At a roj'al wedding in Germany it is
customary for the mistress'of ceremonies
to cut np one of the bride's garters into
small pieces, which are distributed to
those who have taken part in the fes
tivities of the day. As a large number
are entitled to these fragments of the
Order of the Garter, it is not quite clear
how one garter, or even a pair of gait
ers, could supply the demand. At
Prince William's recent marriage the
difficulty was met bj using many yards
of ribbon instead of the bride's garter.

. The word "parlor" is the remnant of
a b3gone slate of things. The da3s are
gone past when Sir Charles Graudison
made his stately bow in the cedar par
lor. "There are no parlors nowada3s,
U13' dear," said an old lady, whom wo
may call Mrs. Partington! "except, I
believe, in the public houses." We have
dining-room, drawing-room, studios,
libraries, smoking-rooms, but the parlor
in the ordinary British mansion- has al
most become a tiling of the past. It re
mains, in a highly fossilized condition,
us a venerable institution prized by the
lower middle class. "Will you walk
into my parlor? said the spider to the
fly," and I always recognize the wretch
ed feelings of that suicidal fly when I
am invited into what people call a par
lor. Very probablv it is only used on
state occasions. The famil3' may bur
row in some subterranean" apartment in
the basement. We perceive by a hun
dred signs that such a parlor is not a
living room, but a dead room. It i3 full
of stiffness and angularities, hard chairs
and still harder .sofas. The region in
which the parlor retains any vitality is
the agricultural region. In multitudes
of farm-houses, and in some vicarages,
this kind of apartment is still found.
But the British farmer follows hard on
the tracks of the 'Squire, and gives up
the humbler for the more ambitious
nomenclature. It is the better class of
laborer and the thriving artisan'who
are now aiming at the possession of
parlors. Among them the parlor is
really a happy and an educating influ
ence. So prevalent have been peace
and plenty of recent years, that in the
suburbs of great towns 30U may pass
whole rows of tenements in which you
may distinguish pleasant parlors, with
ilowering plants Idling the windows
and the sound of pianos clashing all
down the row. Still, in special cases.
the name of parlor yet survives, and of
these I would say a few words. The
parlor or parloir (La. parabolare; Fr.
purolcr, parlor), as the name indicates,
is a place wherein to converse. The
waiting-room of a club is essentially a
pai-lor; in a less formal, but more real,
sense so is the smoking-room. The old
lady was perfectly correct in her allu
sion which, however, was hardly to be
expected of her to public houses. It
would have been more decent if she
had talked about taverns. And what
glorious talk there has been in tavern
parlors before now! We think of Ben
Jonson at the Mermaid and Sam John
son at tho Turk's Iiead. There are
still a few wits and scholars who haunt
the sanded parlors of hostels about Fleet
-When all his warm heart, sherris-warmed,
Flashed forth in random speeches.
Such men have felt and said that there
is no throne like the easy chair of a
tavern parlor. Perhaps there are other
attractions besides wit and liquor for a
tavern parlor. I know a great firm
that advertises for pretty bar maids,
and always sends them homo at nights
in a special conve3ance, to be intrusted
to the charge of a most respectable

question, was pronouncing the above
sentence, a gentleman, obviously much
agitated, forced his way into the centro
of the stalls, and, turning round so as
to face the bod3T of tho house, ex
claimed: "The news has just arrived
that the emperor of Russia has been

confusion ensued; many persons left tho

Pierre Joubert, now at the head of the

sought refuge in Holland. One of his
ancestors, Pierre Joubert, emigrated,
according to documentary evidence, to
tho Cape of Good Hope in IGS7 from
Frovenee, in Frauce, and the family has
been known there ever since. Accord
ing to the American biography Joubert
is only 42 cars old, but the correspon

that he is almost 60.
Blind Tom at a concert recently in

Ide was present at tho Staunton con

the concert in Frederick in I860. In
answer he not only stated the name of
the hall where the concert took place,
but also played the waltz, note for note,
including some alterations tha1, Mr. Ide
had purpose y made in it.

llusty-colorotl spots were noticed on
some Hammock-canvas U3e.i oy tno
French army in Algeria. Dr. Tripler
reported that when the canvas was
washed dark spots appeared, and the
material soon fell to piece."1. M. Balland
made this matter the subject of a paper
read on Feb. 28 lief ore the French Aca
demy of Sciences, and said that the
spots were probably due to iron sul
phite, produced by alkaline sulphides
in the artificial soda, and by iron oxide
fixed bj the stuff in manufacture. The
sulphide passed into tho state of sul
phate under atmospheric influences by
a combustion which caused a destruc
tion of the canvas.
Prof. Goeppert, of the University of
Breslau, while journeying through
Rhincland ly tho Bergisch-Markisc!;e
railway, stopped for a short time at
Elderlield. Something struck him as
peculiar in the structure of certain
blocks of stone only lately uncovered
in making an excavation. Subsequent
ly he secured these blocks, ana had
some of them sent to Breslau and some
to Bonn. The3 were found to contain
a fossil treo of the araucantes family,
The rock inclosing the fossil was the
tipper Devonian of Eibcrlield. This
affords evidence of a terrestrial flora
existing long before the great bogs
were formed which gave us our coal
seams. The fossil tree has received the
name of Araucarites elberf ehlensis.
Mr. J. W. Swan, in a paper on the
subdivision of the electric light, does
not hope for any extensive and eco
nomical subdivision of tho light by
lamps in which there is combustion.
The true incandescent lamps prevent
the combustion of the carbon in one
or two days cither b3 the entire ex
haustion of the air from tho chamber
in which the heated carbon is placed,
or by the filling- of the chamber with
an inert gas such as nitrogen. Both
these expedients were tried by the early
inventors, and both have still their ad
vocates. The early experimenters failed
to accomplish what they sought from
three causes, any one of which was
sufficient to bar tho va. J-irst, the
carbons employed were so thick as to
require a largo current to produce tho
required temperature in them; second.
the carbons were not durable, and
third, the lamp-glass speedily became
obscured. He showed that it was the
invention of the Snrengel pump, and
the use Mr. Crookes showed could be
made of it, that has caused modern
electricians to be sf successful as thev
are in obtaining electric light by in

"I knew an old farmer there who
owned ten acres of timber land
where millions of pigeons came each
year to roost. They devastated the
wheat fields, and the old coon used to
catch the birds in nests and thrash them
out on the barn floor. Each bird had
three ounces of wheat in his crop, and
it was a bad vear for Ohl 1 hompson
when he couldn't ship 1,000 bushels of
wheat to market at $2.60 a bushel, and
it ranked A No. 1 when it reached the
Chicago elevator. If there had been a
few million more of pigeons he would
have come pretty near getting a corner
on the Minnesota wheat crop.
