A Weasant Letter.
It takes a slever juuu to find a good
word to say on every occasion. It is Enid
of Thomas Bailey Aldrich that bo ouco
received a letter from his friend , Pro
fessor Edward S. Morse , nud fonnd the
handwriting wholly illegible. Mr. Al
drich was uot at n loss for an answer.
In duo time there came to Mr. Morse
the following reply :
My dear Morse , it was very pleasant
to receive a letter from yon the other
day. Perhaps I should have fonnd it
pleasantur if I had beeri able to decipher
it I don't think I mastered anything
beyond the date , which I knew , and the
signature , at which I guessed.
There is a singular and perpetual
charm in a letter of yours it never
grows old , and it never loses its novelty.
One can bay every morning as one looks
at it : "Here's a letter of Morse's I
haven't read yet. I think I shall tulco
another shy at it today , and maybe I
shall bo able in the course of a few
years to make out what he means by
those t'sthat look likow's and those i'a
that haven't "
Other letters are read and thrown
away and forgotten , but yours are kept
forever unread. One of them will last
a reasonable man a lifetime. Youth's

Of "William and John Scott , after
ward Lord Stowell and Lord Elton ,
Lord John Russell used to tell this
story : When they were yonug meu at
the bar , having had a stroke of profes
sional lack , they determined to cele
brate the occasion by having a dinner
at the tavern and going to the play
When it was time to call for the reck
oning "William Scott dropped a guinea.
Ho and his brother searched for it in
vain and came to the conclusion that it
had fallen between the boards of the
"This is a bad job , " said William ,
"we must give up the play. "
"Stop a bit , " said John. "I know a
trick worth two of that , " and ho called
"Betty , " said ho , "we've dropped 2
guineas. See if you can find them. "
Betty went down on her hands and
knees and found the guinea , which had
rolled under the fender.
"That's a very good girl , Betty , "
said John Scott , pocketing the coin ,
"and when you find the other you can
keep it for your trouble. " Arid the pru
dent brothers went with light hearts to
the play and so eventually to the bench
and the woolsack.
Flnli In Icebound Waters.
Fish do not breathe air , but the life
supporting constituent of air oxygen
gas which is soluble in water to the
extent'of three volumes in 100 at ordi
nary temperatures and four in 100 at
The water containing the dissolved
oxygen is made to pass over the gills ,
where it is separated from the blood
only by a very thin membrane , through
which the gas is able to pass.
Fish in icebound rivers have to d&-
pend entirely upon this store of oxygen
for their respiration , and if it becomes
exhausted they are suffocated , just as
wo should bo if deprived of oxygen.
It rarely happens , however , that any
considerable area of water is entirely
covered with ice , especially in the casa
of rivers. Holes and cracks are almost
sure to occur hero and there , by which
the oxygen of the air can reach the wa
ter and become dissolved in it. During
a long frost fish may always bo found
congregated ( beneath air holes in large
numbers. They are there to breathe.
Enrly TJne of Tobncco.
I have heard my grandfather say that
one pipe was hriuded from man to man
round about the table. They had first
silver pipes ; the ordinary sort nmdn use
of a walnut shell and a straw. Tobacco
was sold then for its weight in silver.
I have heard some of our old yeomen
neighbors say that when they went to
Malmesbury or Chippenhaui market
they culled out their biggest shillings
to lay in the scales against the tobacco.
Sir W. R. , standing in a stand at Sir
Robert Poyntz's park at Acton , took ; i
pipe of tobacco , which imulo the ladies
quit it until ho had done. "Brief Lines

Tlie Philosophical Tailor.
Hov often have 1 taken away a gar
ment for a fault which did not exist
and which I of course never intended to
rectify. How often have I taken back
the same garment without it ever hav
ing been unfolded and been commended
for the alteration which had not been
made , and then been reprehended for
not having done what was right at first.
A man to be a good tailor should bo
either a philosopher or a mean , cring
ing slave , whose feelings had never
been excited to the pitch cf manhood.
