There is a false noo-ssity with which
we continually iurrninJ ourselves a re
straint of conventional formj. Viuler thin

thoughts. Each longs for a free commu

or the anathema, of some synod, or the fash

What is there of joyful freedom in our
social intercourse ? We wish to enjoy
ourselves and take away all our freedom,
while we destroy his own. If the host
wishes to ride or walk, he dares not, leit
it should seem impolite to the guests. So
they remain slaves, aud feel it a relief to
to part company. A few individuals,
mostly in foreign lands, arrange this mat.
tor vih wiser wisdom.
If a visitor arrive, they say, I am very
busy to day ; if you want to work, the
men are raking hay in the field ; if you
want to romp the children are at play in
the court ; if you want to read to nut, I

where you please, and wliilo you are here,
do ns you please.
At some houses in Florence, large par
ties met without the slightest preparation.
It is understood that on some particular
evening of the week, a Indy or gentle
man always receive their friends. In one
room are books and flowers ; in another,
pictures and engravings ; in a third, mu
sic. Couples are ensconced in some shad
ed aclove.or groups dotted about the rooms,
in mirthful or serious conversation. No
man is required to peak to his host, eith
er on entering or departing. Lemonade
and baskets of fruit stand here and there,
on the aide tables, that all may take who
like ; but eating, which constitutes so
great a part of American entertainment,
is a light and almost unnoticed incident at
these festivals of intellect and taste.
Would thou like to ee social freedom in
troduced here? Then do it. Hut the
first step must be complete indifference to
Mrs. Somebody's assertion that you are
mean enough to offer only one kind of
cake to your company, and put less short
ening in the under-crust of your pie than
in the upper. Let Mrs. Somebody talk
according to her gifts, be . thou assured
that all living souls love freedom belter
than cakes or under-crust. Vr. L.
A Truthful fc Cheap Barometer.
' Take a clean glass bottle and put in it
a small quantity of finely pulverized alum.
Then fill up the bottle with spirits of wine.
The alum will be perfectly dissolved by
the alcohol, and in clear weather the
liquid will be as transparent as the purest
water. Un the approach of ram or cloudy
weather the alumn will be visible in a flaky
spiral cloud, in the center of the fluiu,
reaching from the top to the surface.
Thus a cheap, simple and beautiful bar
ometer is placed within the reach of all
who wish to possess one. For simplicity
of construction, this is altogether superior
to the frog barometer iu general use in
Confused Idea of Names.
Three wild mudlarks wero recently
captured by a young divine, and brought
into a Sunday School in New York.where
they were severally questioned as follows:
" What is your najne I"
" Dan," replied .the untaught one who
was first interrogated.
Oh ! no, your name is Daniel j say it
Yea j well, take your seat."
' "And what is your name ?" was inter
rogated of number two.
" Sam," ej tculuted the urchin.
" Oh ! dear no, it is Samuel ; sit down,
Samuel And now let us hear what your
name is, my bright littlo follow, said he
turning to the third.

shake of the head tlmt would have done

best plan of subscribing is to send your money
direct to the publisher. Those who send
large amounts nad better send drafts, but
notes will answer if drafts cannot be pro
cured. We think we fan show how much cheaper
it is to take the Lady's Book at Three Dol

We will take a late number of both. The
Two Dollar Magazine contained 36 articles,

The Two Dollar Magazine contained 61 pa

Twenty-four more engrsvings, twenty six
more articles, and -thirty-six more pages,
nearly double the jiantitv. The lowest club
price of the Two Dollar Maeazine is $1,25;
lowest club price of Lady's Book $1,67, only
42 cents difference in the price, which is three
and a half cents on each number, and for that
sum (three and a half cents), you receive
twenty-six more articles, twenty-four more
engravings, and thirty-six more pages month

probably never before been presented, but it is
