COL. BROWN, THE MI.MMtKADER.
Colonel Percy Hrown J a Hinar .man.
His neighbors will tell yon so, and lie
has c en admitted it himself, in un
puanled moments. ie is n stock-broker,
with a l ne o l'cc, corner of (hut
wu won't give it away.) The- office is
,: wonderfully desirable situation in a
bus'ticss point of view, anil only has
one drawback, and that is. its attract
iveness for nil species of n-jentd and
high toned peddlers.
ifalti or shine its doom are besieged
by the festive canvasser. Hook agents,
lightning-rod l ends, ehrotuo peddlers,
piano bores, Uible sharks, all seem to
d it-cover an unaccountable fascination
about this parlicii'ar olliceand its genial
.proprietor. Whether it is the olliee
itself, or tho :uti.tie manner in which
the Colonel I lull's them o I" that consti
tutes the attraction, is a question, but
the charm is there, notwithstanding.
Colonel Hrown was formerly a drum
mer, and takes an enormous pride in
liiH knowledge of human nature. He
claims that he can si.e anybody up,
from a serio-comic varieti -singer to a
Dishop in the Mc hodist Church. He
has made a .scientific .study of agents in
particular, and claims to know Hie tribe
m all its branches. At the distance of
twenty feet he can tell what a man is
welling, and within fifty cents of his
At a live-minuteconvetsation with an
ngent, he will be prepared to tell you
where that agent was born, hi.s name,
address, exact salary per week, views
on the tariff question, and in fact almost
anything you de.siro to know about him.
He has got this down to an incredibly
line 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.
l'or instance, if a young man. in a soiled
ssuiland clean paper collar, comes in,
"with soap smeared on his coat, and a
yellow handle peeping from beneath his
coat, Hrown will wink a hs friends
and then shout "Xo. oung man. it's
lingo; ou can't sell me a patent, evtra,
with japanned hinges, and jeweled
monkey-wrench, warranted to make the
clothes" durablesew stray buttons on,
and do the work of sixteen servant
girls." After a silly 1 ko that, it is, indeed, a
hardened agent wjio doesn't blush like
a girl, fall over two spittoons, and
hunt for out-d -ore at a Maud is. speed.
The other day Colonel Percy was
amusing a party of friends in this
fashion, and had successively paralyed
an agent for iron sinks, a "book-agent
and a lightninir-rod highivtiymnn, when
the door opened and a young man in a
white cravat and black suit entered,
-cnirying two books under his arms.
Co onul Percy's eye almost fell out
from the magnitude of the wink he gave
hi.s friends, as ho remarked in an under
tone: "Just got on to tho stvlo in
which I will "pulverize that " Hiblo
The young man approached, and
when ho got within ten feet of the o
pectat t group, the Colonel gathered
himself and his eloquence up 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 2.000 double, Jlcoeed-lined. gilt
edge, single and dou'ile reversible
pages, bound "n pure Turkey morocco
and gold-plated hinjres; with engravings

such complaint This unit bo so. but
still 1 am obliged to say no to jour
trifling request, although I assure vou

The Colonel paused in expectation of
secingthe stippo'ed Bible vender turn
ever' color in the rainbow, stammer a
few npolopies, and slink off as though
he had fallen into somebody's slop-barrel
But he didn't He looked as though
he thought tho Colonel was hopelessly
enry; and the rest of the crowd no bet
ter, and as soon as ho could recover
breath, replied, in an indignant tono:
Who do you think 1 am? 1 am not
Oh! yon aro not a Biblo agent,"
blurted out the Colonel, who didn't pro
pose to see his reputation for human
nature suffer in this .-tyle, and to lose
the half dozen bottles of champagne
which he had bet his friends on the re

triumph, and smacked his lips as ho
thought of the champagne. The visitor
seemed to grow wild as he stammered:

new decorations iu certain rooms at the
Executive Mansion which have been
closed since early in the autumn. In
the East Hoom. in which tli curta!n.i
and furniture were renewed last 3e.tr.
nothing has been done, except to put
down a new carpet. This is an .x
minstcr and was ordered from Huron
e prc-isly for this purpose- as a suiii

four hundred yards of carpet for it.

The Green Parlor, which was entirety
refurnished last3'ear, remains the sime.
The Blue Boom is now furnished in
robin's-egg b!ue, which looks green by
:as-light All the wood-work about tliii
doors and windows, including the win
dow-blinds, is now of this shade. Th
material upholstering tho sofas and
chairs, of which the frames are tho
snne gilt ones used before but re
touched, is a pale shade of the robin'
egg blue silk canvas, with gold warp.
Tho cu'ta'ns. of the same silk canvas,
havo an olive plush bo. der about two
yards deep. These are fastened back
with silk momie cloth and plush loops.
The airpct is an Axminster. with p le
blue ground and small figures. The
walls are a palo shade of robin's-egg
blue, with a dado in a deeper sliadt.
Tho fringe, which is very beautiful, is
of silver and colors in relief. Circular
sconces about three feet in diameter of
opa'cseont glass are fastened to t'10
walls, from which extend gilt b anche.s
with several gas-burners. These
sconces are par icularty cfleetive on the
blue walls. The ceil ng in this, as in
all the newly-finished rooms, is strik

eli pses rnd shields on lined in relief
with silve bands inside. The shields
are in colored mc'als on circles inclos
ing a gold ground. Around the fire

The most striking feature of the red
parlor is the mantel and tho fire-place,
which are wholty now. The hearth is
of English earthenware tiles, a "lea-pot
brown." Tho mantel is mahogam.
The fire-place is bordered b3' brass
moldings, outside of which is a wide
border of square glass tiles, set in
squares over metal, which reflects tho
light. O tsido the border is a richty
carved mahogany frame, with a uarrow
shelf at tho top. Abo e this is a row of
square panucls of Japanese leather, just
beneath tho uppor mantel-shelf of ma
hogaii3'. which shelf is ten feet long.
The columns supporting this at each

The central- design is stars in copper

furniture and curtains arc red, the .same

Tho state dining-room has pale butt
walls and ceiling. Tho curtains are of

The Fox and the Fowls.
A Fox who had gorged himself with
three Fowls was sitting in a fence cor
ner with a disgusted loo v on his Face
when along came a Peasant, who said.
"Tho onty think I have against 3'ou
is that you steal ray Fowls."
"If that's all we can bo Friends." re-
plied the Fox.
" Why, I am ready to promiso that I
will never again disturb tho peace of
"Honestlnjun." said Reynard, as ho
laid his paw on his stomach!
Two davs afterward tho feasant was
crossing his Fields when he suddenly
came upon the Fox devouring one of his
1 nest Hens.
"Ha! but it is scarcety forty-eight
hours since you promised to let roy

he gulped down a leg; " but just then I

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 Lcipsic journal devot
ed to glass matters, and from that we
clip the following bit of useful informa
tion: "Place the tumblers, chimneys, or
vessels which you desire to keep" from
cracking in a pot tilled with coltl' water
and a little cooking salt; allow the mixt
ure to boil well over a fire, and then
cool slowly. Glass treated in this way
is said not to crack, even if exposed to
very sudden changes in temperature.
Chimneys become very durable by tills
process, which may also be extended to
crockery, stone-ware, porcelain, etc.
The process is simply one of aanealiae,
and the slower the process, especially
the cooting-portion of-H, the ikore
f ective wilfbe the work." Golden Milt,

It is a common error V) suppose that
all, or most of the Hberian exiles, are
political offenders. The fact is that this
dais of criminals forms but a small per
centage of them. Twenty per cent, are
sent there charged with no part cular
nllcnse. but 113 the modus operandi ex
plained before, for being a public
nuisance. Tln-re are upwards of thirty
crimes, for the commission of one or
more of which a man m.t3- be trans
ported. This list includes nearly evor3'
kind of offense, from murder down to
pett3' thieving, being without a pas -port
not renewed, nttomptcd suicide,
insult horse stealing, rogue, debt,
smuggling ami the like. The great
class of exiles are nothing more nor less
than ordinary criminals, such as are
found in eer3' prison of eve' country.
The sentences of exiles vary widety, ac
cording as they are condemned to one
or the other of two classes, i.: those
who lose all their r ghts and those who
lose onty a portion of them. The for
mer class aro in an unenviab'e position.
If a man has a title or official rank. lie is
degraded. An exile's marr age rights are
broken, so that the wife is free to' marry
another. Neither hs word nor his bond

nordo anything legal in h'sown name.
Iu pron he wears convict's clothes and
has his head shaved. If the xile be a
woman, she cannot many after her re
lease from prison until b3' good conduct
she has placed herself iu a certain
catcgor3; and, whether man or woman,
the proscripts m:i3 at any motm-nt. if
the auth rit es see fit. be thrown into
prison again, even though tho3' have
served their timo and are living as col
onists. In fact, they loso all their
rights as subjects and almost as human
beings, though they may appeal to
the law if gros ly wronged. But
iu case they be " murdered, little
trouble is expended to ferret out
tho murderer. Though an exile's
marriage rights are broken, the
wife of an exile and their hildren
can accomlan3' the co'ivict to
Siberia and tako up their abode
thc:c, and tho Government pays
me cost 01 traveling anu sus
tenance If, however, the convict be 1 he
wife, the husband has to bear all costs
for himself should he decide to accom
pany her. The consequence is that by
far a less number of husbands accom
paU3 their wives into voluntary exile
than wives their husbands. Those
criminals who onty lose some of their
righ s lose only part of their privileges,
and arc settled in Siberia, t get theit
living in an way tho aro able. '1 hey

Books vs. the Powers of Observation.
It was lately remarked in these col
umns that one of tho (lingers 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 Bookishnessand ab
sence "of mind aro no new faults among
students. Among the more cultivated
classes the- have, indeed, been for a
considerable time in process of diminu
tion, and the last half-century more par
ticularty has seen a groat change iu this
respect Tliysical scienco has roused
students, whb 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 da3 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 roan3 of the mathematicians
and philosophers who walk the streets
of out univers ties live largely ia a
mood of abstract thought we must be
careful of finding undue fault with this,
for the inward eve has some claims not
lightly to be despised. But, with re
spectto the mass of the nation, the
question we have raised is one that de
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 Hteranstudy does bow in the
lower ranks promote that vice of inob
servance which it certainly promoted in
the higher ranks a century or two ago.
Squally we have to inquire whether the
virtue which is the converse of this
error mar be fostered; whether and
how the study of books may be made to
minister to powers ef direct observatioB.
Instead of being adverse to them, and
to assist ia the geaeral business of life.

A scientist, in the interest of married

has advanced a new idea that will till a

take advantage of it immediate relief in

these new fur-lined circulars are un
healthy and should be abolished. It
appears that the fur-lined cloak has the
same ell cct on a woman as a diamond
pin on a man's shirt bosom has on the
man who wears it. A man with a dia
mond pin on cannot have his coat but
toned up. for fear the pin will not show,
and in nine cases ont of ten unless he is
careful to wear a sheep-skin protector,
he catches an awful cold and is liable to
die. More has been written bv scien
tists and medical men upon the folly of
wearing diamond pins on the shirt fromt
than upon any other of the modern
fashions to which mortal man i ad
dicted. And it seems the fur-lined
cloak is also a worm that is gnawing at
the bud of onr beautiful types of woman
hood, and making consumptives oat of
them. The troub.e is a woman is bonsd
to hare about five or six buttons of her
fur-lined clcak unbuttoned at the bot
tom so th cloak will blow back and ex
pose the f;r. Bat women seem deter
mined, in the face of all this testimoBj.
to stick to the f ar-Uned cloak and brave
