fiird frit's C&amp;ilbtm One great want of this country is good schools for the education of rich men's sons and daughters. There is not one good school of the kind referred to in the United States.

Not one in which the integrity even of the physical sysiem is preserved. Not one in which good manners prevail.

Absence of Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856
Absence of Mind. A gentleman was once dining with a friend when a most dreadful storm arose. In hopes of its abatement, the entertainment was prolonged to the latest possible hour, but at length it was over, and the storm showed no signs of ceasing, but on the contrary grew worse and worse. The host insisted upon the gnosi s acceptance ot a lodging for the night, in view of the impossibility of reaching his home. The guest complied, but 111 a few moments, was missed trom the parlor. In half an hour he re-appeared, drenched with rain. "Where, in heaven's name have you been ?" asked the host, viewing the singular object, which looked like a dog about the paws, and a weeping willow about the head. " I ?" said be, quietly shaking off the water, " I have been home to tell my wife that as it was such a bad night 1 should not return." mmf* 111-doers are ill thinkers.

Cifftrijinfl £ floroling prnrislj. An Knglish physician, for some time a resident of Pera. near Constantinople, relates in his journal how he one day astonished one of those queer religious fanatics, half priest, half doctor, and always beggars, known as howling dervishes : A young slave belonging to the house where for a while we were invited to sojourn, was afflicted with ycllunjik (toothache.) Immediately on her desire being made known, a messenger was dispatched for a dervish whom she named, and who was rather eminent in the cures he effected. The family, except one aged relative upon whom this slave attended, were staying at their country residence. Fitnet Hanaum. the slave, was led into the presence of the dervieh. He might once hare been a handsome man. but now his countenance had taken that sickly and distorted expression which often follows their dreadful ceremonies ; nnd with his thick, bristling moustache and his long matted beard, it gave him by no means a prepossessing ...

Childish Quick-Wittcdnen. The Etatt Unit tells a characteristic anecdote of the brother of the present Kmperor of Russia. The Grand Duke Constantino, at ten years of age. inhabited the winter palace, whose base iwashed by the Neva. Large iron rings were fattened in the stone work of the palnce. to which the boats for the embarkation of the'court were moored. When the Neva rose to these rings, it was the sign of an inundation of its hanks. One day the little prince stood watching the rapid rise ol the river. " Well, your highness," said General Benkendorf, then Minister of war, " at ten years of age you are grand Admiral ; yon tire very powerful indeed, but no matter how powerful you may still become, yon can never prevent the Neve from rising to the rings." " Oh!" replied the grand duke, " that is because I am only a nteke-believc admiral ; when I become great and command the Meet in reality. 1 will prevent the Neva from reaching the rings." " How, your highness ?" " Oh! very easily...
Hint! to Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856
Hint! to Ladies. Stair carpets should always have a slip of paper put uuder them, at and over the edge of every stair, which is the part where they first wear out, in order to lesseu the friction of the carpet against the boards beneath. The strips should be within an inch or two as long as the carpet is wide, and about four or five inches in breadth, so as to be a distance from each stair. This simple plan, so easy of execution, will, we know, preserve a stair carpet hall as long again as it would last without the strips of pa]ter. kw3p Time flies, and never dies.

A Painful Scene. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856
A Painful Scene. A few days ago, as we w ere riding up Hroadw ay in an omnibus, a well-dressed, middle-aged, goodnatured lady entered the vehicle, just above t'anal street, and took a seat opposite us. On looking around she bad her gaze upon a yonng couple sitting at our right, and instantly her face Hushed and her eyes Banned, liaising her linger and pointing.' it to the young man, she said : " You area putty son to cheat your mother out of all her property, and then tan her out of her own house, which your lather built for ber." Everybody in the omnibus at once turned their attention to the young man, who blushed, frowned, and finally said : " 1 wouldn't have turned you out if you had not told BM wife und accused her. Nobody shall abuse my wife." " l ou are a pretty son to cheat your mother out of all her property, and then turn'her out of her own house, which your father built for her." repeated the lady, without the slighlest variation in tone or accent.

Sagacity of the Indian. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856
Sagacity of the Indian. This man has often been among the prairie Indians, understands their language and character well, and the moment he sees a trail made by them, or an nil deserted camp, he at once determines of what nation they were; the number of horses and unties iv tlicir possession : whether they were accompanied by their fnmilies, and whether they were upon a war expedition or otherwise; as also the time (within a few hours) of their passing, with, many other facts of importance. Those faculties appear to be intuitive, and confined exclusively to the Indian. I have never seen a white man that could judge of these matters with such certainty as they. For example, upon passing the trail of the Indians to-day. one of our Delawares looked for a moment at the foot-prints, picked up a blade of grass that had been crushed, and said the trail was made two days since, when to us it had every appearance of being quite fresh. Subsequent observations satisfied us that he was correct....
