How to Kill the Bhics. Generally speaking, if you are troubled wirb '-the blues," and can not tell why, yon may he certain that it springs from physical weak? ness. Instead of lying on the sofa anil courting painful ideas if you are a desperate lover, a hypochon driacora valetudinarian.you should be up and stirring yourself. The blood of a inelaneholy man is thick wild slow, creeping sluggishly through his veins, like muddy water in a canal: the blood of your merry chirping philosopher is clear and quick, brisk as a now-broached champagne. Try, therefore, to set your blood in mot ion. Try, rather, what a smart walk will do for you: set your pegs in motion on rough, r^eky ground, or hurry them up a steep, cragged hill: build a stone wall: swing an ax over a pile of hickory 01 rock-maple: turn a grindstone: dig ditohes;prac tire "ground and lofty tumbling;-' pour water into seives with the Dan aides, or. with Sisyphus, "up the high hill heave a huge round stone;" in short, do anything...

The first laud sighted by the adventurous Captain .lohn Smith from the deck of his ship was Cape Charles and the first Indians seen by the Eng? lish were the tall natives of what is now Accomac county.

A Sensible Style fur Dwelling Houses. A few words as to domestic arch? itecture. Our rnral dwellings uro, almost universally throughout the country, of wood. In consequence it is difficult to overcome their box? like appearance and identify them with the landscape. An average village, unless so embowered as to conceal its construction, looks too much like an accumulation of dry goods crates. The nearest approach to harmonization with nature is generally found in old, weather beaten farm houses, nestling in their fields among the orchards al? most as naturally as the great boul? ders in the pastures. A landscape photograph, into which the average trim dwelling intrudes, is a proof of how trying to natural beauty is the usual abode of man in this country. Welt-meaning efforts have been made ro remedy this ugliness by the addition of adorn men f, which, however, being for the most part purposeless, and adding to the cost without any corresponding benefit, only aggravates the evil. The ...
