AMONG THE CELESTIALS A Miss Susan A. King, a lady who has accumulated quite a fortune by speculating in real estate in New Yurk city, Las made quite a tour through China, principally in the tea growing districts. A reporter of the New York World interviewed her the other day, and from that source we learn some interresting facts about the social life of the celestials. She says the condition of women in China is about the Bame as in -tfeis country that higher classes of Chinese women are taught like ours to controll their voices; that ii is not polite to speak above a certain tone. They study attitudes and effects before their mirrors for hours at a time; just liko ours, and they bandage their feet for the game reason that our girls cramp tlieira. In fact, email feet are the "style," and what American girl wouldn't walk on her head to be even with "style?" The ladies of the higher classes are extremely agreeable in maners. They are much more polite than our ladies in some re...

where women send for dishes already cooked for the family. Then they have no beds that need making or coverings that need washing, the better class sleep on mats, and the poor in the northern part of China, where it is sometimes very cold, have a corner bricked up,, so as to make a sort of oven, or furnace. A very small fire is sufficient to keep this warm, so that the children can be put in it any time during the day and the whole family turned in to sleep at night. —Women-d&nVlive-single-inJGhina-;-tliere is hardly a single women to be found in China. All the efforts of the parents are devoted to getting her married, and a female child is often promised to the son of a friend before she is born. Daughters are undesired all over the world, and in China with reason even more than in America, for the lot of a girl, if she is poor, is terrible, and mothers and fathers too would rather see them die than live to inherit it. That is the reason why female infanticide is eo commo...

$tlut f oetrg SPEIHfi FLOWUS. ¦ IABT POEM OP PHfflBT CABBY. . [This poem -was written, after receiving a gift of flowers from her friendMrs. Mary Stevens Robinson, who had the sad privilege of being with the poetess through her last sickness and death at Newport.— Eds:] ¦ O sweet and charitable friend, Your gift of fragrant bloom • Has brought spring-time and the woods To cheer my lonely room. It rests my weary, aching eyes, An sooths my heart and brain', To see the tender green of the leaves And the blossoms wet with rain. V t I know not which I love the most, Nor which the comliest shows; The timid, bashful violet, , Or the royal-hearted rose j The pansy in her purple dress, . The pink with cheek of red, Or the faint, fair heliotrope, who hangs, Like a bashful maid, her head ; For I love and praise you, one and all, From the least low bloom of spring, To the lily fair, whose clothes outshine The raiment of a king. And when my soul considers these, The sweet, the grand, the g...

Gheerittlness.—We believe that cheer fulness can be, and ought to be, cultivated by all;. that kindness is most beneficially contagious; that to carry good nature and a wisely curbed temper with you istoisring igft w-.li vim is to Bring suDEfime with you wherever you go; that patience and forbearance in your-intercourse-with family-and friends and community will always bring forth the richest of social fruits; that the treasure of good deeds achieved, the sufferings assuaged, are worth infinitelyfltoore than political, honore; that the creation of joy is inestimably better than the besetting sin of borrowing trouble; and with Charle Lamb, that "a laugh is worth a hundred groans in any state of the market." The Weeping Willow.—The following is the authentic and rather romantic history of the drooping and mournfully beautiful weeping willow: "Ales Pope, the English poet, received from the East a present of a basket of Smurna figs. Among these he discovered a small green twig, an...

Build Hun a Fire. Ferrin, the landlord" of the Westminster Hotel, in New York, is not often nonplussed, but last August a dapper littte Frenchman staggered him for a moment. Walking up to the office he accosted Ferrin ¦with. "If you please Monsieur, you shall send bill de hre in my room. *" "A what!" said Ferrin, looking at the thermometer, which indicated 92 degrees. "I wish ze bill de fire in my apartment," repeated the Frenchman. _ "All right, sir,"?said Ferrin, with that outward imperturbilaity with which the true Hotel keeper receives an order for anything, if it be gold dust pudding with diamond plums. "John 1 fire in 10,001." Yes sur-r-r!" said John; and by the time the Frenchman arrived at his room, John, with perspiration pouring off of him, had the grate filled and a blaze roaring up the chimney like mad. : "Vat ze diable you do ?" cried the astonished foreigner. "Built a fire, as ye ordered," replied the other exile. "Fire!" screamed the Frenchman. "I shall roast myself...

The Next Comet.—Enck s comet- js now on its way towards the perihelion-, which it will reach in January next. The comet has been telesccpically visible for some time, but it is not>*an object of special interest to those whose vision is unaided by instruments. It has a very short period—only three years and a quarter.— The least distance from the sun is 32,000,-000 of miles, or about the average distance of Mercury. The greatest distance is 887,-000,000 of miles, or mare than four times that of the earth. This comet is princiuallv of interest because its period of rev¬ olution has diminished to the extent of about three days in the past eighty years, a fact which ia generally accepted as furnishing the best proof of the theory that the regions of space are filled by mateirial "either" capable of retarding the motion of the bodies composing the solar system. Of course this resisting medium would produce annual effects upon the comet of a few tons in weight, that would not ...

Home Conversation.—Children hunger perpetually for new ideas. They will learn with pleasure from the lips of parents what they deem it drudgery to study in books: ana even if they have the misfortune to be deprived of many educational advantages, they will grow up intelligent if they enjoy in childhood the privilege of listening daily to the conversation of intelligent people. We sometimes see people who are the life of •very company thev enter, dull silent, and uninter¬ esting at home among their children. If they have not mental activity and mental stores sufficient for both, let them first use What they hare for their own households. A silent nousa is a dull place for young people, a place from which they will escape if they can. How much useful information, on the other hand, is often given in pleasant family conversation, and what unconscious but excellent mental training in lively social argument. Cultivate to the utmost all the grace* of home nnnvenmtinn. >
