THE DURGLAJt AND THE EDITOR.
A burglar climbed Into an editor's room
Need j' and poor was ho
And he uw In the dim uncertain gloom.
With Icjm aa long in the stem of a broom,
A pair of trouserr " I'll Juct freeze to 'nrn ;"
Hu chuckled, with Ilcndlth glee.
He lifted tbem up from the back of the chair;
Lightly they hung on 1i!h arm;
They wre the cditor'd only pair,
Thinner than goHtamcr everywhere;
Oh, but the knees were worn and bare!
Good clothes when the weather fa warm.
All over the room he searched in vain;
There was no wore to find;
There whs no fign of sordid jjain,
No passing dropa from a golden rain.
Only the wealth of the sleeper's brain,
The peace of the editor's mind.
Ho tnrnpd his back on that happy home,
Thoughtfully hefting those pants;
Out of the window he cautiously dome;
He emptied the pockets a broken comb,
A stub jf a pencil, a manuscript poem.
Answered his searching glance.
He started; the tears flashed into his eyes ;
Ho leaned up against tho fenco;
A look of pitying, inuto surprlso
Softened his face; be stifled nis cries.
He looked at his swag, and measured Its
Value nbout nine cents.
Into his pockets (his own) he went.
And he drugK d out u ten-dollar bill;
And he hastily crammed It, every cent,
Into the editor's pockets and bent
Ihe 11 outer into a wud and sent
Them over the window-sill.
Then on to a wealthier house he sped.
'"Twas a charity well bestowed,"
He said to hiimclf, and when night had fled,
And the editor roe from his virtuous bed.
And found the money, he whistled and said,
" Well, I am e-sentially bin wed I"
SIGISBERT LAXCINET'S LUCK.
A Characteristic Sketch from the French.
44 My friend," said the Notary to Sig
isbert Liincintt, "here are the 6600
franco willed and bequeathed to you by
your uncle. The legacy-duty, stamps
and fees have been deducted. Put the
money carefully away in your pocket,
be careful not to let any sharp-looking
stranger brush up against you, and get
Lome as soon as possible."
Worthy sir, your excellent advice
shall be followed," said Sigisbert Lan
cinet, squeezing the good Notary's hand
and leaving the office with the dignity
of a man who does not have 6,500 francs
in his pocket every day of the week.
For Sigisbert Lancinet, Bohemian
both by disposition and profession, had
never thitherto been the owner of 10
francs of his own.
When he was in the street Sigisbert
Lancinet soliloquized half aloud.
44 What an old ass that Notary was!
To fancy that I 1 of all people would
be silly enough to let any ore get away
with my wealth. Suppose I drove home
no, that would look like a cowardly
concession to the Notary's fears. Be
sides, I am not sorry at the prospect of
showing myself to my acquaintances in
my new role of bloated capitalist."
So saying Sigisbert Lancinet ap
proached a shop -window and took an
admiring glance at his image reflected
in the great mirror.
44 Heavens!" he exclaimed, starting
back in consternation, "can that am
bulatory rag-bag be Sigisbert Lancinet?
Lazarus in all his glory was not arrayed
like unto this. What a shocking bad
hat! a perfect epic of decrepitude.
Let me not lose an instant in shooting
this tile, which makes mo redden as
much as it reddens itself."
He went to the hatter's and bought
him a hat, and when he came out he
respired more joyously and said to him
self, 44 Now, that is mbre like the thing
I do not quite so closely resemble a
but hold on! On letting my gaze run
to my other extreme I am horrified to
observe that the soles of my boots are
not waterproof, and that the uppers are
a libel upon shoemanity. Let me not
hesitate one second"
Ho entered the bootmaker's.
By Jove!" he said, on regaining the
street, 4t that job's off my hands, but
oh, the frightful discordance The im
maculate varnish of my boots makes my
pantaloons look ten years older by con
trast, while beside my dazzling hat my
coat loses the few pretensions to respect
ability which it f ormerlyjos?essed. To
appear in such guise would be ridic
He crossed the street and entered a
ready-made clothing establishment,
whence issuing robed and crowned he
for he had fasted since getting-up time,
and had got up unusually early so as to
be at the notary's office betimes felt
the inner man assert itself. He found
himself at that moment at the Palais
Royal. 44 And to think," soliloquized the
nouveau rtcAe, "that not once in my
brief life have I set foot within the plate
glass doors of these opulent restaurants
in the w ndows whereof are heaped fas
cinating trophies of game and fruits of
Tantalus! Yet I had always hoped
and, indeed, why should I not gratify
myself just for once. One doesn't get
a legacy every day. What stunning
Just as he had placed his hand upon
the handle of the door some one tapped
him upon the shoulder.
44 Hi, Sigisbert!"
44 Hullo, Adolphe!"
4The same. Where are you off to?"
44 Going in to breakfast don't yon
44 You ! going in to breakfastthere?"
44 Certainly. And what if I am?!'
44 Oh, nothing, only it would be a
graceful act on your part to invite me
to join you, seeing that you are 'flush
and that my pockets are as empty as
t4 By all means; come along."
They breakfasted. They began with
Burgundy and continued with claret,
and the waiter waxed so eloquent in
praise of a peculiarly fine and dry
- champagne for which the house was
noted tbat they had a bottle of that.
Then they had coffee and liqueurs.
At the third glass of Chartreuse Sigis
bert Lancinet was the friend of the
whole human race without exception.
Adolphe, with the pilot's wary eye,
marked his friend's crowiar good hu
mor, and whispered to hlta rally,
"Sigisbert, ok fal Pre always said
that if there was a good-hearted ckap
in Paris,8urisbert Lancinet was the man.

" I should hope, old boy, that I
wouldn't go back on a friend,' if he will
allow me to call him so."
"Of coarse you wouldn't. Ikaowyoa
will stake an old friend of yours, who
only wants 300 miserable petty francs
till next Tuesday to"
"Never mind what you want tbem
for; that is none of my business. Here
are your 300 francs. So long as Sigis
bert Lancinet has a shot in his locker
he will not steel his ear against the ap
peals of friendship. Take my arm and
let us go for a walk."
In the Galerie d'Orleans some one ac
44 M. Lancinet, I am glad to see you
looking so well. About 18 months ago
you promised to pay me a bill "
44 A bill for how much?"
44 Five hundred francs."
44 Five buadred francs whom do I
owe 500 francs to?"
44 To me. I keep the restaurant at"
44 Here's your money. Call on Sigis
bert Lancinet at any hour of the day or
night for money and if hu owes it it
shall be paid instantly."
A little further on he met Cydalisa, a
piquante little brunette for whom Sigis
bert Lancinet's heart used to beat like
one like forty.
In her society he visited the miliner's
shop, the jeweler 's,theBois do Boulogne,

It was 2:80 a. m. when Sigisbert
Lancinet reached his lodging.
To whom the angry janitor:
44 You're a sweet duck, staying out
?izzling and muzzling till all hours,
ou can bet your new loots I'll let the
boss know what sort of a tenant he has
in you. There's your bedroom candle
and a letter that came for you."
44 Here I'll make that all right
this'll pay you for getting up," saia Sig
isbert Lancinet, opening his pocket
book. It was empty!
Mechanically he opened the letter
which the janitor had handed him. If
read as follows :
Sm: I made an error this morning in giv
ing you 0,500 francs as the net amount of
your late uncle's legacy. That was the gross

Easy Lessons in Etlquotte.
We have been profoundly interested
in a work that has just been sent us, the
author whereof. Professor B. F. Fan
ning, aims to give to the world easy les
sons in etiquette for gentlemen. It is a
useful work. Among other things, the
Professor says a gentleman " never fails
to lift his hat to a minister of the gos
pel." Possibly, but the minister would
a great deal rather sec the gentleman
lift his pew rent.
44 No gentleman," says the Professor,
"ever gives a military salute to a lady."
Well, hardly; we should say he
wouldn't. The military salute varies
from a simple graceful wave of the hand
to three ruffles of the drum's color,
trumpets sounding the flourish and arms
presented, and so on up to the Presi
dent, who is entitled to a salute of 21
guns, and "the highest honors all
standards and colors dropping, officers
and troops saluting, drums beating and
trumpets sounding." Now, if the gen
tlemen of America got into the habit of
raising such a racket as that every time
they met a lady, it would be rather more
startling than a chronic Fourth-of-July.
Professor Fanning is correct. This sort
of thing wants to be discouraged.
44 When calling on a new lady ac
quaintance, the hat should be taken to
the parlor and held in the hand."
This is one of the best instructions in
the book. When you don't know all
about the lady and her family, young
man, freeze to your hat all the time.
We once knew a young lady who kept
her father and four brothers in nice, new
stylish hats all the time, by simply in
structing the servant to just skin the
hat-rack every time a young man with a
giddy hat was fresh enough to leave his
hat in the hall. We'll bet a dollar Pro
fessor Fanning has been there himself.
And then, besides, a "plug" hat is
such a comfortable thing to hold in one's
hand. When you can't think of any
thing to say, you can stroke the hat the
wrong way, and then exert your ener
gies during the rest of the visit to get
ting it smooth again. And then, if oc
casion demands, you can use it as a
44 A gentleman," says the Professor,
with becoming severity, " never dances
with his overcoat on."
And we may add, that he hardly ever
dances with his over-shoes on, and the
instances, in the best society, in which
a gentleman has danced through an en
tire set with his ulster drawn closely
over his head, his trousers stuffed in the
legs of his india-rubber hunting-boots,
and an umbrella held over his head, are
rare indeed. Society can not feel too
grateful to the Professor for mentioning
this little matter of etiquette.
44 A gentleman," continues the Pro
fessor, " always wears gloves."
This is solemn, sober, earnest, in
spired truth. When you meet a a
person anywhere, in the street, in the
cellar, at the lunch-stand, in swimming,
in bed, and you see he wears no gloves,
shun that person. He is ao gentleman.
Professor Fanning says so, and Profes
sor Fanning knows. Why, a real gen
tleman wears gloves when he washes
his hands and when he trims his nails.
"Always," insists the Professor,
44 offer your hand to a lady with the
back of the hand down."
If you don't believe this, try offering
the hand to a lady with the back of it
up. The lady will immediately kick the
stumng out ot you.
"Use the fingers," remarks the Pro
fessor, " with grace and delicacy."
Yes, try scratching your head with
them, for practice. When you are able
to do that gracefully and delicately.you
can let your fingers go their own ways
at their own sweet will. They will have
attained the perfection of grace and
delicacy. Burlington Hawkey e.
A gold laurel wreath will soon be

"the people's tribute to the Premier."

of the wreath is f 1.200.

New walking boots hare pointed

Fancy cloth tops have had their day and
on ordinary occasions shoes are always
black, while for full dress it is optional
with the wearer whether or not they
shall match the costume. A black all
wool material called talin Franeau is
largely employed for the uppers of the
finest French boot, and French kid Is
used for the taxings. Another all-wool
material, not quite so fine, known as
satin laine, and the still coarser English
lasting of prunella, are also used for the
The modified Directoire bonnets,
with broad brim, flaring at the top, and
close on the sides, is very distinguished
looking, and thus far proves to be the
most popular of the large shapes. It
is shown in chips and in fancy braids,
with the cream-colored rough straws
that trim so effectively; also in the jet
embroidered bonnets, some of which arc
done on tulle, while others are wrought
on satin. Sometimes a soft crown is
added to the Directoire brim, but it u
more usually large, smooth and square.
Those of beaded tulle are smooth on the
frame, and have lace strings, lace quilt--iog,
and a bouquet of roses or carna
tions with the long stems showing con
spicuously, placed low down on the left
side of the crown. Jet balls like those
of a necklace edge the brim. Still oth
er embroidered bonnots have white mar
about plumes on top, and elder blos
soms, with watered ribbon for strings.
In some bonnets the tulle is laid over
black satin, and the luster enhances the
richness; a large thread lace barbe is
passed below the crown on the small
curtain, is fastened on the sides by cres
cents of Rhine crystals, and falls thence
as strings. In the flaring brim of the
Directoire shape gold braid is some
times used for a facing, though shirred
satin or silk is most of ten seen. Anoth
er stylish shape for chips and soft straw
bonnets has a broad flaring brim that
is quite soft, and is drawn back on the
left side by trimming passing from
the inside. This is a graceful and
becoming shape for young: ladies who
wear elaborate coiffures. The close cot
tage shapes with plain front or with
roiled brim remain most poslUr jdth
ladies of conservative taslcWn'dfre
commended at the best houses as being
most suitable for city streets. The
Cabriolet bonnet, so like a round hat,
will be worn at the summer resorts. It
has a great many flowers fancifully dis
posed upon it, both inside and out, and
is tied by ribbon strings that pass across
the crown. The shot or changeable
ribbons, sometimes called glace ribbons,
are the latest novelty in millinery.
They come in blue shot with gold, red
with green, pink with blue, green with
cream color, and are usually sold to
match the new costumes of shot silk
The soft brim chips just mentioned have
a rosette of changeable blue and gold
ribbon catching back the brim on the
left side, and another drawing up the
chip curtain. The ostrich feathers that
trim the right side are also shaded in
these two colors. Rough straws with
satin luster are used in yellow tints like
the fine Tuscans for bonnets to match
costumes. They are then trimmed with
the brocade or satin used for the acces
sories of the costume, together with a
small cluster of feathers, or some large
ro63, poppies, or field flowers, and a
plaiting somewhere of the inevitable
Breton lace. Mixed colors In rough
straws are also liked with costumes, but,
to be trimmed effectively, ribbon or
satin of a single color should be
used, and used very simply as
well. Thus the "ribbon that
forms strings should make a large
irregular bow of four loops on one side
of the crown, then pass around it, and
end in strings. Rough black straw bon
nets have peony xed satin shirred as a
face trimming, while outside two colors
of satin ribbon are used ; one is gen
darme blue, and the other peony red.
White elder blossoms are the flowers.
These brilliant contrasts of color need
to be carefully selected, and are often
toned by white flowers, or else a shell
plaiting, or a regular jabot of Breton
lace. For dress Bonnets the daintiest
cottage shapes, made entirely of flow
ers, are shown at some of the best
houses. Thus the brim will be formed
of small rose-buds imbedded in moss,
while the crown is formed of a single
mammoth rose of pale pink shades.
Such a bonnet costs $40. Other flower
bonnets in close shape are first made of
sh rred India muslin or of crepe lisse,
and are then covered with lilies-of-the-valley,
a rose-bud wreath, and transpar
ent crape foliage; white tulle strings.
Small Tuscan braid bonnets trimmed
with two curled ostrich tips, or else one
of the marabout, with creamy satin and
lace, are considered very dressy. There
are also white satin Directoire bonnets
embroidered with seed-pearls. The
trimmings are ostrich feathers encircling
the crown, and strings of Breton lace.

The new educational bill in the Bel
gian Chambers provides that for the fa
ture, religious instruction shall be im
parted in the schools of that country by
the ministers of the different denomina
tions in person. A room is to be set
apart for them in each school, and there
they will be free to come daily and
teach religion as long as they please,
either before or after class hours; but
they will no longer be suffered to inter
fere with the lay teacher's work, and
they will oease to hare any control over
the schools as inspectors. An addition
al clause of the bill provides for the es
tablishment of three new Normal
Schools (there are already two) and en
acts that all teachers desirous of being
appointed to State or communal schools
must graduate at these establishments.

Killing the Pxach Borer. An
Ohio farmer sends the following to an
exchange : One pint of crude carbolic
acid, costing 25 cents, is sufficient for
20 gallons of soft soap, with as much
hot water to thin it; then stir in the pint
of carbolic acid and let it stand over
night or longer to combine. Now add
12 gallons rain water and stir well ; then
apply to the base of the tree with a short
broom or old paint brush, taking pains
to wet the inside of all crevices. This
will prevent both peach and apple bor
ers. It should be applied in the latter
end of June in this climate, when the
moth and beetles usually appear.

Kerosene oil judiciously applied is a
valuable article in the poultry-house.
Perches washed with it occasionally will
remain free from vermin ; it is also ef
fective in the cleaning of nest-boxes. It
appears, however, that there is a wrong
as well as a right way of employing this
pungent substance. According to the
Poultry World kerosene should be ap
plied beneath the nests and upon the
wood work only. It is too strorg and
penetrating to be placed where it will
come in direct contact with the eggs
that are being set on or to touch the
bodies of the fowls. Therefore, where
it is carelessly or too profusely scatter
ed, so that the hen sits upon it or her
eggs are touched with the liquid, it does
more harm than good, often permeating
the shells and destroying the embryo
chicks. According to the authority re
ferred to, if the eggs are smeared with
kerosene oil at any period, either when
first laid or when being set, their vitali
ty is as surely destroyed as it would be
if the shells were punctured or crushed.

sum making their brooms during their ,
lei-juro time. The culture of broom corn
is simple, requiring about the same care
as Indian corn, and may be planted in
the same field. A row or two can I
be planted at one side of the
field, putting the rows about the
same distance apart, and the hills two
to two and one-half feet apart. It is
well to manure in the hill with some
fertilizer. The planting is best delayed
till after corn planting, as it is more
sensitive to the cold, and needs good
growing weather and cultivating when
quite small to encourage its early
growth. The after culture is merely to
keep up a healthy growth and clear of
weeds. When it comes into blossom
fully, the heads should be broken down

is done to keep the brush straight, and i
encourage early maturity. It should

Cut with 10 or 12 inches or stem, ana
keep straight and one way; carry it to
the barn or shed, and spread it thinlv
on open racks, or frames, wnen wen
dried it should be divested of its seed,
and the cleaned brush tied in small
bundles, to await making up. Differ
ent modes are adopted by different indi
viduals to clean the brush. If only a
small quantity is grown, and old tow
hatchel can be used to clean off the
seed, or a board set edgewise, between
which and a short piece of board,
edged with a piece of sheet-iron, held
in the hand, the brush is passed, or
some other device; but where large
quantities are produced, some ma
chinery, like a grain-threshing machine,
is used. In order that success may at
tend the ripening of broom corn in
New England, early and continuous
growth must be encouraged, which may
be accomplished by careful, thorough
culture. The seed is held in esteem as
feed for stock, when ground, mixed
with other grain. W. H. White, in
Bostaa Baked Beaas.
It is known to most of the inhabitants
of the Ball that makes its diurnal revo
lutions around the Hub that we who en
joy the felicity of dwelling in the center
of all things celebrate the rise of the
Sunday sun by a repast of pulse and
brawn, sometimes spoken of as 44 pork
and beans1' or "bacon and beans."
Like most of the facts ia the experience
of the Bostoneee, this habit has been
pretty well advertised, aad sometimes
there have not wanted those of the vul
gar herd who hare been moved to ani
madvert with asperity upon the well es
tablished custom. We look upon all
such flings with the lofty disdain that
arises from a mind conscious of its own
rectitude, and with pity for the igno
rance from which they spring.
Generations ago, whea many other
parts of our noble land were howling
wildernesses, our ancestors overhauled
their classics, and made a note of the
fact that the poet Ovid, of blessed mem
ory, in his remarks appropriate to the
calends of Jane, giree an account of the
rite to which I hare referred, which was
promptly incorporated into the calendar
of our belored city. We are classical
or nothing. We know that it is the
good goddess Carna who protects the
lungs aad lirer of man (or at least that
she was wont to do so ia classical
times), and that in her hoaor the good
people of classical days eat repasts of
pulse and brawn. 4 You ask," says
Ond, " why fat oacoa u tasted on ttteee
calends, aad beans are mixed with the '
boiled spelt. She is a goddess of an-j
cieat days, aad she stul diets on the '
food that in oldest time aha used, aad
aha does not, ia a spirit of laxary, ask
for the dainties of foreign lands. In
that day the fishes swam aacaaght by a

and the oysters ware still safe ia their
