The Irish Soldier Frederick of Prussia, nad a mania for enlisting gigantic soldiers into the " Royal Guards,'* and paid an enormous bounty to his recruiting officers for getting them. One day a recruiting sergeant chanced to spy a Hibernian who was at least seven feel hi gh, he accosted him in English, and proposed that he should enlist. The idea of a military life, and a large bounty, so delighted Patrick, lhat he at once consented. " But,"said the sergeant, " unless you can speak German, the king will not " give you so munh." "Och, and b© jabers," said the Irishman, it ' s I lhat don't know a word of German." " But slid the sergeant, " three words will be sufficient, nnd these you can learn in a short time.

Poisonous Visiting Cards, Few ladies remember that they carry around poison in their card cases, But il is so, nnd sometimes to the danger of children or ihoughtless people of large growth. The elegant and highly polished enamel on visiting cards is composed, in part, of poisonous mineral substances, and if eaten would produce serious sickness. The manufacture of (his card paper is said lobe exceedingly unhealthy, and we may well believe it. It would be therefore, a kind thing to the workmen engaged in the manufacture of cards ond a safe Ihing for themselves and their children, if. the ladies, who set tlm fashion to these things, would give up the use of enamelled cards * and confine themselves lo those of plain surface. These we understand, are now decidedly tho most fashionable, from what cause we know not, but the plain, brownish cards are considered the most stylish.
