Baby H&hdj. Fondly clasped together, Round the mother’s neck, What a pretty picture Baby hands do make I But baby hands don’t always So innocent appear; For often full of mischief v Baby fingers are. For example, see them At the supper table, Doing all the mischief That to do they’re able. Smash I there lies a teacup Shattered on the floor; Or see milk from the pitcher Prematurely pour. Twisting now the handle Of the rattle box, Or with it giving pussy Agonizing knocks; Jerking mother’s earrings, Pulling father’s hair, Or scratching Johnnie’s eyes out, What a roguish pair 1 Crack ! there goes the mirror 1 What won’t he next destroy ? Who gave the child the hair brash ? ’Tis no baby’s toy ! Goodness! did you ever! There the inkstand goes I Just as I expected, Now look at your clothes! Now perched in the window, Patting against the pane, For just in sight is father, Coming up the lane. Always making mischief, Heeding no commands, Till in baby slumber Bound are baby hands. ...

The Comet. The comet! He ia on his way, And singing as he flies; The whizzing planets shrink before The at ,-jjtr or the skies; Ah! well may rogal orbs turn blue, And satellites turn pale, "Jen million cubic miles of head, Ten billion leagues of tail. On, on by whistling spheres of light He flashes and he flames; He turns not to the left nor right. He asks them not their names; One spurn from his demoniac heel— Away, away they fly, Where darkness might be bottled up And sold for “Tyrian dye,” And what would happen to the land, And how would look the sea. If in the bearded devil’s path Our earth should chance to be? Full hot and high the sea would boil, Full red the forests gleam; Methought I saw and heard it all In a dyspeptic dream! I saw a tutor take his tube, The comet’s course to spy; I heard a scream, the gathered rays Had stowed the tutor’s eye: I saw a fort—the soldiers all Were armed with goggles green; Pop cracked the guns! whiz flew the balls! Bang went the magazine. saw a...

POPULAR SCIENCE. The abundance of remains of the mammoth in Siberia is remarkable. From the fact that at least a hundred pairs of tusks are annually put upon the market, Nordenskjold infers that during the time that has elapsed since the conquest of Siberia useful tusks from more than 20,0J0 of these animals have been collected. . It is quite commonly believed that In running a man descends at each stride upon the ball of the foot, so that the arch of the foot may serve as a spring to break the shock. In his instantaneous photographs, however, Mr. Muybridge show's that either in W'alking, running or jumping, man—■ like all other animals so far observed upon the heel. Near Salzburg, Austria, a mine has been found which seems to .have been abandoned at least 2,000 years ago in consequence of an inundation. Bodies of the ancient salt-miners have been discovered among the debris tolerably well preserved. Among the implements were wooden shovels, a basket made of untanned rawhide, a piec...
