ifain or shine its doors nre bedeged
by the festive canvasser. Rook agents,
lightning-rod I ends, chrotno peddlers,
p.uno bores, Rible sharks, all seem to
ili.-cover an unaccountable fascination
about this particu'ar olliceand it genial
.proprietor. Whether it is the oflico
itself, or tlio artistic manner in which
the Colonel I lull's them o r that consti
titles the attraction, is a onc-tion. but
the charm is there, notwithstanding.
Colonel Rrown was formerly a drum
mer, and takes an enormous pride in
Iim knowledge of human nature. He
claims that he can si.e anybody up,
from a serio-comic variel -.singer to a
Hilltop in the Me hodist Chun-li. He
has made ascientilic .study of agents in
particular, and claims to know the tribe

agent, he will be prepared to tell you
where that agent was born, his name,
address, exact salary per week, views

anything you desire lo know about him.
IIo has got this down to an incredibly
fine point, and often amuses his friends
by his .sharp guesses at the article the
agent is going to show him. before the
latter has commenced his rgmarole.

yellow handle peeping from beneath his

with japanned hinges, and jeweled
monkey-wrench, warranted to make the

and do tho work of sixteen servant
girls.1' After n silly 1 ke that, it is, indeed, a
hardened agent who doesn't blush like
a girl, fall over two spittoons, and
hunt for out-d ore at a Maud S. speed.
Tho other day Colonel Percy was
amusing a parfy of friends in this
fashion, and had successively paralyzed
an agent for iron sinks, a'book-agent
and a ligiitniuir-rod highwayman, when
tho door opened and a young man in a
white cravat and black suit entered,
-eairying two books tinder his arms.

The young man approached, and
when ho got within ten feet of the o
pecta't group, the Colonel gathered
himself and his eloquence tip in a heap,
ami precipitated himself on the unlucky
object of his ridicule in the following
fashion: -No. sir, 1 don't want a Bible
with 112.000 double, lleoeed-lincd. o-ill-edge,
single and dou'de reversible

McmlKrs of the Cabinet and a few
others have been- admitted to ace the
new decorations in certain rooms at the
Kxccutive Mansion which havo been
closed since early in the antumn. In
the East Room, in which th curtain.!
and lurniture were renewed last c.ir.
nothing has been done, except to put
down a new carpet. This is an .x
minstcr and was ordered from huropn
e pressly for this purpose, as a sulii
cient quaniit' to cover this room in
any pattern of line goods could not bs
found in New York, for it requires over
four hundred yards of carpet for it.
Tho pattern of this carpet is too small
and its colors too dull to be suitable in:
so immense an apartment The figurcy
are so su all tlj.it they seem indi.st uctl
defined, but the decorator in charge
told me that was because any marked
desigu in so vast a room must neces
sarily be .so often repeated us to bo

colors are such as are seen In an Eat
The Green Parlor, which was entirely
refurnished la-.tye.ir, remains the same.
The Rlue Room is now furnished in
robin' s-egg blue, which looks green by
tras-light All the wood-work about tho
doors and windows, including the window-blinds,
is now of this shade. Tim
material upholstering tho sofas and
chairs, of which the frames ate the
suno gilt ones ued before but re
touched, is a pale shade of the robin's
egg blue silk canvas, with gold warp.
Tho cu'ta'ns. of the same silk canvas,
havo an olive plush bo.dcr about two
3'ards deep. These are fastened back
with silk momiu cloth and plush loops.
The carpet is an Axminster, with p le
blue ground and small figures. The
walls are a pale shade of robiu's-egg
blue, with a dado in a deeper shad.
The fringe, which is very beautiful. Is
of silver and colors in relief. Circular
sconces about three feet in diameter of
opa'cscont glass arc fastened to fie
walls, from which extend gilt b anches
with several gas-burners. These
sconces are par icularly effective on the
blue walls. Tho ceil nir in this, as in
all the newly-finished rooms, U strik
ingly beautiful. It is a combinat on of
eli uses Mid "shields on lined in relief
withsilvo" bauds inside. Tho shields
are in colored me'als on circles inclos
ing a gold ground. Around the fire-
pbice aro blue opa esccnt glass tiles.
The most striking feature of the red
parlor is tho mantel and tho firo-placc,
which are wholly now. The hearth is
of English earthenware tiles, a "tea-pot
brown." Tho mantel is mahogany.
Tho fire-place is bordered by brass
moldings, outsido of which is a wide
border of square glass tiles, set in
squares over metal, which reflects the
light O tsido the border is a richly
carvod mahogany frame, with a narrow
shelf at tho top. Abo c this is a row of
square panncls ot Japanese leather, just
beneath the upper mantel-shelf of ma
hogany, which shelf is ten feet long.
The columns supporting this at each
end are of rriahognny and roprcsent the
Roman fasces. These rise from the lloor
and, with the long shelf described, foim
three sides of a very largo rectangle,
with the fire-placo in the center. The
mirror covers the remainder of the wall
to the ceiling. The walls are of a terra
cotta red and the dado a crimson brown.

Tho state dining-room has pale buff
walls and ceiling. Tho curtains arc of

The Fox and the Fowls,
A Fox who had gorged himself with
three Fowls was silting in a fence cor
ner with a disgusted foo'c on his Face
when along came a Peasant who said.
"Tho only think I have against you
is that you steal my Fowls."

plied the Fo.v.

will never again disturb tho neaco of

laid his paw on his stomach!
Two davs afterward the feasant was
crossing his Fields when ho suddenly
came upon the Fox devouring one of his

"Ha! but it is scarcely forty-ei"ht
hours since you promised to let rov
'Yes, I know." replied Reynard as
he gulped down a leg; " but just then I

It is a common error to suppose that
all. or most of the Hberiaa exiles, are
political offenders. The fact is that this
lass of criminals forms but a small pcr
entage of them. Twenty per cent, are
sent there charged with no part cular
oflenie. but by the modus operandi ex
plained before, for being a public
nuisance. TheTe are upwards of thirty
crimes, for the commission of one or
more of which a man may be trans
ported. This list includes nearly every
kind o: olteiise, from murder down to
petty thieving, being without a pas -port
not renewed, nttemptcd suicide,
insult horse s'ealing, roguery, debt,
smuggling and the like. Tho great
class of exdes nro nothing more nor less
than ordinary criminals, such as aru
found in every prison of every country.
The sentences of exiles vary widely, ac
cording as they are condemned to one
or the other of two classes, iz.: those
who lose all thoir rghts and those who
lose only a portion of them. The for
mer class aro in an unenviab'e position.
If a man has a title or official rank. he is
degraded. An exile's marr age rights are
broken, so that the wife is free to marry
another. Neither h's word norhis bond
is of any value I Ic can own no property
nor do anything legal in Irs own name.
In prison he wears convict's clothes and
has his head shaved. If the xile be a
woman, she cannot marry after her re
lease from prison until by good conduct
she has placed herself iu a cortiin
category; and. whether man or woman,
the proscripts may at any moment, if
tho auth rit es see lit. be thrown into
prison again, even though they have
served their time and are living" as col
onists. In fact, they loso all their
rights as subjects and almost as human
beings, tliough tliey mav appeal to
the law if gros ly wronged. Rut
in case they bo "murdered, little
trouble is expended to ferret out
the murderer. Tliough an exile"
marriage rights are broken, the
wife of an exile ami their hildren
can accompany the eo'ivict to
Siberia and take up their abode
thc:c, and the Government pays
the cost of traveling and sus
tenance. If, however, the convict be the
wire, the husband has to bear all coiits
for hinisolf should he decide to accom
pany her. The consequence is that by
far a less number of husbands accom
pany their wives into voluntary exile
than wives their husbands. "Those
criminals who only lose some of their
righ s lose only part of their privileges,
and arc settled in Siberia, t get theit
living in any way troy aro able. Ihey
may, however, first have to set vc a term
in prison: or, again, they may be al
lo.xcdto live in their own house and
give a portion of their time to ( overn
ment work. As a rule they are f.rst
condemned to serve a certain time to
confinement, with or without labor. If
they behave well they are a lowed to
live" outside of the prison with their fatn
ilic , but are not released from their
share of the Government work until the
t mc for their liberatlo i has arrived.
Some of the female prisoners arc given
out in service to favored civilians, where
they serve out their time, subject how
ever, to Government inspection.

Almost every drawing-room nowa
days has a lamp of some rich design
upon the center-table, and to careful
housekeepers it is a vexed problem how
to keep lamp-chimneys from cracking.
The Diamond is a Leipsic journal devot
ed to glass matters, and from that we
clip the following bit of useful informa
tion: "Place the tumblers, chimnevs, or
vessels which you desire to keep'from
cracking in a pot filled with ooW" water
nd a Uttle cooking salt; Uow the mixt
ure to boil weU over a fire, aad then
cool slowly. Glass treated in this war
w saw not to crack, even if exposed to
,vV Duuc wugj m temperature.
Chimneys become very durable by thig
process, which may also be extended to
crockery, stone-ware, porcclaia, etc,
The process is simply one of aaaealiar,
and the slower the process, especially

Books vs. the Powers of Observation.
It was lately remarked in theso col
umns that one of tho dangers attendant
on education was that it might lessen
men's powers of observation. There is
no doubt, we apprehend, that this pos
sibility docs exist. Rookishncssand ab
sence of mind aro no new faults among
students. Among the more cultivated
classes thny have, indeed, been for a
considcra'de time in process of diminu
tion, and the last half-centurv more nar-
ticularly has seen a great change in this
respect, inysicai science has roused
students, who in former ages would
have been abstract thinkers and nothing
more, to careful and steady observation
of external things. Facilities of trav
eling have acted as another stimulus in
the same direction; and the love of
nature has been a power over sentimen
tal minds, and has led them insensibly
from a quiet enjoyment of their sur
roundings to more active investigation.
So that altogether the classes which at
the present day have the advantage of
the higher education are far more ob
servant than were their forerunners of
three or four centuries ago; and, though
even now many of tho mathematicians
and philosophers who walk the streets
" uuivere ues ve largely ia a
mood of abstract thought, we must be
careful or finding undue fault with this,
for the inward eye has some claims not
lightly to be despised. But, with re
spect to the mass of the nation, the
question we have raised is one tht do.
serves a good deal of attention. Popular
education is still in the bookish stage;
and. without complaining of what is in
evitable, we may and ought to inquire
whether literary study does now in the
lower ranKs promote that vice of inob
servance which it certainly promoted in
the higher ranks a century or two ago.
Equally we hava to Inquire whether the
-virtue which is the converse of thm
error may be fostered; whether and
how the stady of books may be made to
minister to powers of direct observation.

these new fur-lined circulars are un

appears that the fur-lined cloak has the

man who wears it. A man with a dia
mond pin on cannot have his coat bat
toned up. for fear the pin will not show,
and in nine cases out of ten unless he is
careful to wear a sheep-skin protector,
he catches an awful cold and is liable to

than upon any other of the modern
fashions to which mortal man i ad
dicted. And it seems the far-lined
cloak is also a worm that is gnawing at
the bud of our beautiful types of woman
hood, aad making consumptives out of
them. The troub.e is a woman is boand
to have about five or six buttons of her
