The Late Frances Willard. 'How beatiful it is to bo with God — with. God — with God !' she whispered ^bout noon on Thursday, February 17th. That was the last connected sentence she uttered. She sank back on her pillow and entered upon a long sweet sleep. Two or three times a glorious smile swept over her fa(:e, and her lips moved. 'God — come — come — come' were the words listening ears nearu, ana tnen tne lips ceased to move. All that afternoon and far into the night that divine smile intermittently played about the face, the respiration growing weaker, weaker until midnight, when the silver cord which held her snapped.' Such is the account givea by an American journal of tho passing away of Miss F. Willard. Miss Willard was robed in white satin, and upon her heart lay a heart of roses, placed there by a cabled order from Lady Somorset, Miss Willard, in her autobiography, had ordered, begged, and praved that her remains might be cremated, in order that no misohief might be done to ...

ART OF TALKING. Cnrmn sometimes mistook his own abundant contribution for that of his company, observing ?' Well, we have had a delightful dinner ; all wore in capital spiiits ; I never remember to havo been more amused.' During all this period Curran himself had been almost the onlv ono who had uttered a syllable ; yet, if utteied that syllnblo was merely to keep him in mo tion ; or, as .Burke said of his conversations with Johnson, ' only to ring tho bell.' Man is like a gl»ss of beer. Blowing the top off his bead settles him.

Dr, Harold Davis looked around with illcon cealed impatience at the chattering, well dressed throng that filled Mrs. Norton's spacious rooms, and then hu frowned slightly as if ho ere disappointed. He would not have acknow ledged even to himself that he was trying to find anyone as he elbowed bis way up stairs, bnt when he saw Mrs. Brandon Stewart in tho recess of the library the frown instantly dis appeared, and he wns smiling when ho sat down beside her. She was probably in search of solitude, but be evidently did not think his presence an intrusion, and if such a thought hud by any chance entered his mind it would havo been dispelled by the light of welcome in her eyes. 'Oh. Harold,' she cried impulsively, ' I'm so glad it is you. I want to talk to some one, and I know you will understand me.' He smiled and took a seat beside her, and for several minutes neither spoke. From bulow came tho sound of low, murmuring voices, ting ling laughter, and the iterative mel...

JUSTICE IN NOVEL GUISE. Wonderful are tho ways of justico when she once sots foot in tropical lauds ! Possibly the climate is there too stimulating for her brain, since she apparently grows more proficient in artful devices, and at the same timo more reck less in tipping her scales.

We wers joined by tho bailiff of the farm, and in the course of our walk Turk suddenly discovered tho presence of a rabbit concealed in what in Scotland is called a ' dry-stane dyke.' After ft. little trouble in removing some stones, poor Dunny was caugns and slaughtered, being handed to the bailiff, who put it in bis coat pocket. Shortly after wards we separated, the bailiff going to his home in one direction, anil we to ours in an opposite one. Before we reached home wo uoticed that Turk was no longer with us, at which we were rather surprised, as he wns a very faithful follower.
