=» First Failure. ________ ^ Yes, indeed, if we have the right stuff iy us, these failures at the outset are grand materials for success. To the feeble then are, of course, stumbling-blocks. The wretched weakling goes no farther; he lags behind, and subsides into a life of failure. And so by this winnowing "process the number of the athletes in thegreat Olympics of life is restricted to a"few, and there isclearspaceinthe arena. There is scarcely, an old man among us—an old and successful man—who will not willingly admit that he was made by his failures, and that what he once thought his hard fate was in reality his good fortune And thou, ' my bright-faced, bright-witted child, thou thinkest that thou canst carry Parnassus by storm, learu to possess thyself in p * atience. Not easy the lesson, I know; not cheering the knowledge that success is not attainable, per aaltum, by a hop, step and a jump, but by arduous * passages of gal-¦kui£_jiersevcrnncc, toilsome' ciibrts lojjg susta...

What the Microscope Keveals.— Lewenboeck tells us-of an insect seen with,the microscope of which 27,000,000 would equal a mite. Insects of various kinds may be seen in the cavities of a grain of sand. Mould is a forest of beautiful trees, with the branches, leaves and fruit. Butterflies are fuly feathered. Hairs are hollow -tubes. " 4 The surface of our bodies is, covered with scales like a fish ; a single giain of sand would cover 150 of these scales, and yet a scale covers 200 pores. Through these narrow openings thesweat forces itself like water through a ceive. The mites make 500 steps a second. Each drop of stagnant water contains a world of animated being3, swimming with as much liberty as the whales in the sea. Each leaf has a colony of insects grazing on it, like cows on a meddow, Slordl: Have some care to the air you breathe,-the food you eat, and the water you drink.. " '

Depth of the Ocean.—The success which has attended the laying of submarine cables has set aside the erroneous idea of an ocean without bottom at rest forever and given an impulse to the effort to in: vent new means of sounding and dredg ing. The soundings made in the Atlantic shows its bottom to be an extensive plateau, varying in depths at different points. The average depth ia 12,000, though the steamer Cyclops obtained » depth of 15,000 feet. \ This ocean floor be mm about one hundred and fifty miles iroin the Irish coast; there the descend from the shallow to "deep water is very rapid, reaching 10,500 feet in fifty miles, giving an angle of descent greater than that of tho Italian Alps; ) The deepest part of the Atlantic is on the American eidc, near the bank3 of Newfoundland, where a great basin exists, ranging-east and west for nearly a thousand miles, and whose depth is believed to exceed the high-C3t of the Himalaya mountains.

. How rr was Discovered.—An alleged discovery of a cure for cancer from a specific derived from a plant which grows in Ecuador is exciting much interest in medical circles. A. curious story is told of the manner in which the anti-cancer virtues of this plant were first discovered.— For a long time previous to the discovtry the plant had been regarded as a poison. Acting upon thi3 belief, an Ecuador wife who desired to rid herself of her hus¬ band gave him a decoction of this plant in his drink,, The fellow wob already dying slowly of a cancer in his stomach, but hei eagerness could not wait for the ordinary sequel in such cases. She applied the noxious distillation to his drink, and waited to see him fall ather feet. But instead of that thehappy husband survived. The subtile essence benefited his cancer, and the fellow finally recovered from his disease to make known the blessing..to the world.

It was one evening last summer, when a lady who belongs on the editorial staff of one of the leading dailies of New York Had been detained by office duties until rather a late hour. Living onthe.heighta, in Brooklin, but a short distance irom Fulton Ferry, it was not niuch of a venture to. go home-without eseort, and so she started. On the boat, standing outside en- • joyrng the refreshing breezes after the days toil, she perceived a gentleman (?) in rather close proximity to where she was leaning over the guards, but said nothing. "Are you alone?" said he, as the boat neared the slip. "No,.sir," said the lady and without further interruption, when the boat touched shf stepped off. "I thought you were not alone," said the fellow, stepping to her side again. r "I am not," replied the lady, "Why, I don't see any...
