A PLEASANT CHAT. 

With thee conversing, I forget all time." 

Milton. 



He that goes a-borrowing goes a-sorrowing, 



A GUIDE TO HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY. 



Who will not keep a penny shall never have 



■fPlREAT works are performed not by strength, 
c?^ but by perseverance. — Johnson. 

When you have bought one fine thing you 
must buy ten more, that your appearance may be 
all of a piece. 

Employment so certainly produces cheerful- 
ness that I have known a man come home in 
high spirits from a funeral, merely because he had 
the management of it. — Bishop Home. 

Wealth is like a viper, which is harmless if 
a man knows how to take hold of it ; but if he 
does not, it will twine around his hand and bite 
him. — St. Clement. 

Frugality is good and to be highly recom- 
mended, if liberality be joined with it. The first 
is leaving off superfluous expenses ; the last is 
bestowing them to the 
benefit of others that 
need. The first with- " 
out the last begets 
covetousness ; the last 
without the first begets 
prodigality. — W. Penn. 

He that hath it and 

will not keep it ; 

He that wants it and 

will not seek it ; 
He that drinks and is 

not dry, 
Shall want money as 
well as I. 

It is no merit to 
accomplish an object 
by difficult instruments 
when easy ones are at 
hand, or to reach an 
end by a circuitous road 
when there is a straight " 
course. Michael An- 
gelo, being told of an artist who painted with his 
fingers, exclaimed, " Why does not the block- 
head make use of his pencils?" 

A man's best help is himself, his own heart, 
his resolute purpose — it cannot be done by proxy. 
A man's mind may be aroused by another, but he 
must mould his own character. What if a man 
fails in one thing ? Let him try again— he must 
quarry his own nature. Let him try hard, and 
try again, for he does not know what he can do 
till he tries. 

If you compute the sum of human happiness 
in any given day, you will find that it was com- 
posed of small attentions and kind words which 
made the heart swell and stirred into health that 
sour film of misanthropy which is apt to co- 
agulate on the stream of our inward life as surely 
as we dwell in heart apart from our fellows. 

If you wish to be happy, have a small hon c e 
and a large balance at your banker's ; if you wish 
tobe unhappy, adopt the opposite plan. But 
this rule is to be taken with reference to means. 
The principle applies, but not the degree, to the 
man of twenty thousand and the man of two 
hundred a year. _ To be overhoused and under- 
balanced is an evil in all conditions, and disturbs 
both sound sleep and good digestion. 



Seeking for Truth. 

Before thy mystic altar, heavenly 
Truth, 

I kneel in manhood, as I knelt in 
yo7ith ; 

Thus let me kneel, till this dull form 
decay, 

And life's last shade be brightened by 
thy ray : — 

Then shall my soul, now lost in clouds 
below. 

Soar without bound, without consum- 
ing glozv. 

Sir Wm. Jones. 



5|HE reason why men succeed who mind their 
^ own business is because they have little 
competition. 

The Stoical scheme of supplying our wants by 
lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet 
when we want shoes. 

Few things are impracticable in themselves ; 
and it is for want of application, rather than of 
means, that men fail of success. — Rochefoucautt. 
The mere scarcity of money (so that actual 
wants are provided) is not poverty — it is the 
bitter draught to owe money which we cannot 
pay. — Sir Walter Scott. 

If rich, it is easy enough to conceal our wealth ; 
but if poor, it is not quite so easy to conceal 
poverty, We shall find that it is less difficult to 
hide a thousand guineas 
than one hole in our 
coat. 

He that does not 
know those things which 
are of use and necessity 
for him to know is but 
an ignorant man, what- 
ever he may know be- 
sides. — Tillotson. 

Neither a borroiver 
nor a lender be, 
For loan oft loses both 

itself and friend, 
And borrowing dulls 
the edge of hus- 
bandry. 
Riches are to society 
what food is to the body. 
Should any one of the 
members of the body 
absorb the nutriment 
intended for the whole, 
the body would perish utterly ; for it is held 
together only by the requisite distribution of 
nourishment to the divers parts. In the same 
manner, the general harmony of society is main- 
tained only by the interchange of services between 
the rich and the poor. 

There is a fretting habit, much recommended 
by men of business, and of great use to them, of 
writing the evening before the duties of the day 
in a book of Agenda. If this is done at all by 
intellectual men with reference to their pursuits, 
it ought to be done in a very broad, loose way, 
never minutely. An intellectual worker ought 
never to make it a matter of conscience (in in- 
tellectual labour) to do a predetermined quantity 
of little things. This sort of conscientiousness 
frets and worries, and is the enemy of all serenity 
of thought. — Hamerton. 

I will suppose that you have no friends to 
share or rejoice in your success in life — that you 
cannot look back to those to whom you owe 
gratitude, or forward to those to whom you 
ought to afford protection ; but it is no less in- 
cumbent on you to move steadily in the path of 
duty, for your active exertions are due not only 
to society but to the Being who made you a 
member of it. — Sir Walter Scott. 



Calamity is mans true touchstone. 



SINGLE LIFE AND MARRIED LIFE. 



Men are but children of a larger growth.— Dryden. 



"cM ARRIAGE," says Dr. Johnson, "is the 

&r~ best state for a man in general ; and 
every man is a worse man in proportion as he is 
unfit for the married state." 

" A man will spend and aye mend, 
If his wife be ought ; 
But a man will spare and aye keep oare, 
If his wife be nought." 

Amongst the relics of the past preserved in 
St.-Martin's-in-the-Fields is a whippbg-post, 
presented to the parish about 1600, which was 
used for the punishment of men who ill-treated 
or deserted their wives. This post formerly 
stood, with a pair of stocks, at the lower end of 
Trafalgar Square. Its wholesome correction 
was last administered 
in 1652. I 

We may admire the li 



wit, without acknow- 
ledging the truth, of the 
repartee uttered by a 
bachelor who, when his 
friend reproached him 
for his celibacy, adding 
that bachelorship ought 
to be taxed by the 
Government, replied, 
" There I agree with 
you, for it is quite a 
luxury !" 

Amongst our indus- 
trious and frugal fore- 
fathers it was a maxim 
that a young woman 
should never be married 
until she had spun her- 
self a set of body, table, 
and bed linen. From , 
this custom all unmar- 
ried women were termed 
spinsters, an appellation they still retain in all 
our law proceedings. 

The good wife is none of our dainty dames 
who love to appear in a variety of suits every 
day new ; as if a good gown, like a stratagem in 
war, were to be used but once. But our good 
wife sets up a sad according to the keel of her 
husband's estate ; and if of high parentage, she 
does not so remember what she was by birth, 
that she forgets what she is by match. The good 
wife commandeth her husband, in any equal 
matter, by constandy obeying him. It was 
always observed that what the English gained of 
the French in battle by valour, the French re- 
gained of the English in cunning by treaties. So 
if the husband should chance by his power in his 
passion to prejudice his wife's right, she wisely 
knoweth by compounding and complying to re- 
cover and rectify it again. — Fuller. 

According to Mulhall, in each year in Eng- 
land 15 people out of every thousand marry. Of 
each i,oco men who marry, 861 are bachelors 
and 139 are widowers ; while of each 1,000 women, 
only 98 have been married before, and 902 are 
spinsters. Twelve marriages out of every ico are 
second marriages. 



Home, Sweet Home. 

Cling to thy home ! if there the meanest 

shed 
Yield thee a hearth and shelter for thy 

head, 
And sonze poo* plot with vegetables 

stored 
Be all that Heaven allots thee for a 

board, 
Unsavoury bread, and herbs that scat- 
tered grow 
Wild on the river bank or mountain 

brozv, — 
Yet e'en this cheerless mansion shall 

provide 
More heart's repose than all the world 

beside. — From the Greek. 



JjjljTHOSE marriages generally abound most 
-^ with love and constancy that are preceded 
by a long courtship. The passion should strike 
root and gather strength before marriage be en- 
grafted on it. A long course of hopes and ex- 
pectations fixes the idea in our minds, and 
habituates us to a fondness of the person be- 
loved. — A ddison. 

Crusty old bachelors say that "Courtship is 
bliss, but matrimony is blister." They say, too, 
that Adam's wife was rightly named Eve, 
because man's day of happiness was drawing 
to a close. They deny the ancient proverb in 
which even " Old Time " was made to yield to 
Love. Their view is that Time conquers Love 
in the great majority of 
cases. " L'amour fait 
passer le temps; 



mais 
le temps fait passer 
l'amour." 

It seems at times 
odd enough that, while 
young ladies are so 
sedulously taught all 
the accomplishments 
that a husband disre- 
gards, they are never 
taught the great one 
he would prize. They 
are taught to be ex- 
hibitors, he wants a 
companion. He wants 
neither a singinganimal, 
nor a drawing animal, 
nor a dancing animal ; 
he wants a talking 
animal. But to talk 
they are never taught ; 
all they know of it 
is slander, and that 
"comes by nature." — Godolphin. 

An annuity of over fifty pounds was left to the 
bell-ringers of Bath Abbey by Lieut.-Col. Nash, 
"provided they should muffle the clappers of the 
bells of the said abbey, and ring them with dole- 
ful accentuation from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on each 
anniversary of his wedding-day, and during the 
same number of hours, only with a merry peal, on 
the anniversary of the day which afforded him 
a happy release from domestic tyranny and 
wretchedness." 

Every woman has some chance to marry. It 
may be one to fifty, or it may be ten to one that 
she will. Representing her <-ntire chance at one 
hundred, at certain points of her pi ogress in time 
it is found to be in the following ratio : — 



After sixty it 
one chance in a

Years and Days. 

The length of the year is 
strictly expressed by the 
space of time taken by 
the earth to revolve round 
the sun : namely, 365 days, 
5 hours, 48 minutes, 49 
seconds, and 7 tenths of a 
second. For convenience 
J of reckoning, however, it 
has been found best to 
; make the year end with a 
1 day instead of a fraction 
I of one, lumping the frac- 
tions together so as to 
make a day among them- 
selves. Such is the origin 
of the leap-year, of which 
1892 is one, when an extra 
day is given to February. 
The true solar day is 
the interval of time which 
elapses between two con- 
secutive returns of the 
same terrestrial meridian 
to the sun. By reason of 
the inclined position of 
the ecliptic and the un- 
equal progressive motion 
of the earth in its orbit, it 
is not always of the same 
length. The mean solar 
day 'a therefore employed 
for all civil purposes. 
This is the time in which 
the earth would make one 
revolution on its axis as 
compared with the sun, if 
the earth moved at an 
equable rate in the plane 
of the equator. The sub- 
division of the day into 
twenty-four parts or hours 
\ has prevailed since the 
remotest ages. Europeans 
in general, begin the civil 
day at midnight. Some 
nations have chosen sun- 
rise, and others sunset, as 
the beginning of the day. 

j S7in rising and setting 
I are here given in Green- 
wich time. For local i 
time at Dublin subtract

GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Before January is at an end a few flowers are 
in bloom. Train neatly roses, clematis, honey 
suckle, and other creeping plants. Any still 
unplanied bulbs, such as the tulip, narcissus, 
etc., should be put in the ground during the 
first open weather. Any bulbs planted in tde 
c'ose of last year, and now appearng above 
ground, should be looked to ; it is well to shelter 
the more valuable sorts by layers of fern leaves 
Lorn frost and snow. Delicate plants must be 
taken particular care of at this time. Unless they 



are properly protected, they are in more danger 
of being harmed by frost, now that the sun b 
more power, though they are less liable to be 
harmed by damp. In houses cinerarias, primulas, 
etc., will now be in flower. If the weather per- 
mits, sow early peas and beans in sheltered bor- 
ders. !■ hould bees be kept, feed them, if the 
we ight of the hive shows that they require feed- 
ing. After each fall shake the snow off ever- 
greens, which are much harmed by alternate 
freezing and thawing of snow water.

GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Whenever the weather is favourable, set about 
any work that was hindered in January by frost 
cr snow. Creepers with drooping flowers, such 
as glyceria, cobea scandens, etc., should now be 
trained horizontally, while roses and others are 
to be trained upright. Pinks, polyanthuses, 
thrift, box, and all plants employed for edging 
borders may be moved in suitable weather. On 
mild days, admit air freely to auriculas, pelar- 
goniums, and other hardy pot-plants. In the 
last week of the month sow mignonette and 
hardy annuals in a warm border for subsequent 
transplanting. Sow radishes in a sheltered 
border, but protect them with fern leaves or light 
litter and uncover at every favourable interval. 



Peas sown now will be read}' for the table about 
as soon as those pl-anted in November, and will 
yield a more abundant crop. Plant them in 
drills wide at the bottom, and spread the seed 
regularly. It is a common error to sow them too 
thick and in narrow drills ; the wide drill is 
particularly important for marrow-fats and other 
branching sorts. Sow Bath or green Egyptian cos- 
lettuce. Currant and raspberry bushes unfold 
their leaves at the end of this month. Prepare 
netting and other protection for wall-trees, and use 
it when the buds begin to swell during the preval- 
ence of north-easterly winds. Before the buds are 
much swelled, prune apricots, peaches, nectarines, 
and plums ; and also apples, pears, cherries, etc.

LAUNCH OF THE " ROYAL SOVEREIGN" AT PORTSMOUTH. 



A Wise Precaution. 



G, 



OW wisely Nature, ordering all below, 
^^ Forbade a beard on woman s chin to groiv ! 
For how could she be shaved, whate'er the skill, 
Whose tongue would never let her chin be still ? 



The Cup of Cold Water. 

A young Englishwoman was sent to France to 
be educated in a Huguenot school in Paris. A 
few evenings before the fatal massacre of St. 
Bartholomew's Day she and some of her young 
companions were taking a walk in a part of the 
town where there were sentinels placed. 

One of the soldiers, as the young ladies passed 
him, besought them to have the charity to bring 
him a little water, adding that he was very ill, 
and that it would be as much as his life was 
worth to leave his post and go and fetch it him- 
self. The ladies walked on, much offended at 
the man for presuming to speak to them, all but 
the young Englishwoman, whose compassion 
was moved, and who, leaving her party, pro- 
cured some water and brought it to the soldier. 
He begged her to tell him her name and place of 
abode, and this she did. 

When she rejoined her companions, some 
blamed and others ridiculed her attention to a 
common soldier ; but they soon had reason to 
lament that they had not been equally com- 
passionate, for the grateful soldier contrived, on 
the night of the massacre, to save this young 
Englishwoman, while all the other inhabitants of 
the house she dwelt in were killed. 



Wouldst thou know thyself, observe the actions 

of others ; 
Wouldst thou other men know, look thou within 

ihine own heart. 



John o'Groat's House. 



C<?. 



^AMES IV. of Scotland sent Malcolm Gavin 
\y and John de Groat, two brothers, into 
Caithness, with a letter written in Latin, recom- 
mending them to the kind regards of the people 
of that county. They became possessed of lands 
in the parish of Anisley, on the banks of the 
Pentland Firth, which was equally divided be- 
tween them. 

In course of time there were eight families of 
the same name, who shared alike, and lived 
comfortably and peaceably for many years. 
These were accustomed to meet, to celebrate the 
anniversary of the arrival of their progenitors. 

At one of these meetings it became a matter of 
dispute which of them was entitled to enter first, 
and take the head of the table, which had like to 
have terminated fatally but for the presence of 
mind of John de Groat, proprietor of the ferry, who 
remonstrated with them ; pointed out the neces- 
sity of unanimity as regarded their own happi- 
ness, their respectability among their neighbours, 
and general safety from the inroads of those 
clans who might envy them, and take advantage 
of their dissensions. He then proposed the 
building of a house, to which they should con- 
tribute equally ; and he promised at their next 
meeting he should so order matters as to prevent 
any dispute about precedency. 

Having gained their assent, he proceeded to 
build a house, with a distinct room of an octa- 
gonal form, having eight doors and eight windows, 
in which he placed a table of oak, with eight 
sides. At the next annual meeting he desired 
each to enter singly at different doors, and take 
the head of the table, himself entering the last, 
and taking the remaining unoccupied seat. By 
this ingenious manoeuvre they were all placed on 
an equal footing, and good-humour and harmony 
were restored and established. Such was the 
origin of the sign of " John o'Groat's house."

Lynn. 



Lynn, Lynn Regis, or 
King's Lynn, is a well- 
known seaport of Norfolk. 
It is about a hundred 
miles north of London, 
and is situated on the 
; Great Ouse, about two 
' miles from the Wash. In 
days of yore the town was 
defended on the land side 
by a fosse, and remains 
still exist of the old wall, 
including a handsome 
Gothic structure known 
as the " South Gates." 
Some of the dwelling- 
houses in Lynn date back 
to a very early period ; 
the streets are as a rule 
narrow and winding. The 
church of St. Margaret's, 
formerlythe priorychurch, 
is a handsome Gothic 
building with two towers 
at the west end. The 
Grammar School of Lynn, 
founded in Henry VIII. 's 
reign, is well known to 
most readers as a school 
at which Eugene Aram, 
the murderer, was usher 
at the time of his appre- 
hension. Lynn is sup- 
posed to have been a 
British town, and was 
known as a port prior to 
the Norman Conquest. 
After that event it be- 
came the possession of the 
Bishops of Norwich, and 
was known as Lynn 
Episcopi. After the sup- 
pression of the monasteries 
it came into the hands of 
Henry VIII., and its 
name was changed to 
Lynn Regis, or King's 
Lynn. The town was 
captured by the Parlia- 
mentary forces in 1643. 
Its first charter was re- 
ceived from King John, 
but its first governing 
charter dates from the 
reign of Henry VIII. 



GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Any anemone roots left over from the autumn 
should now be planted. In this way a succession 
of flowers is secured late in the season. Divide 
Chinese chrysanthemums and place them in 
small pots, or into a border of rich soil, to pot 
later in the season. Pot scarlet lobelias, and 
place them in a sunny window or a moderate hot 
bed. At the end of the month the seeds of hardy 
annuals may be put into the ground in light 
soils. They should be sown in small patches, and 
covered with a little dry earth. Transplant last 



year's layers of carnations into beds or large pots 
at the end of the month. Sow lova'ge and Canada 
clover for bees. In the kitchen garden there is 
much to do this month. Sow lettuce and carrot 
seed and radishes later in the month. Plant 
potatoes in rows two feet apart and ten inches 
between the sets. Graft apples, pears, cherries, 
and plums ; for this the middle of the month is 
said to be the best time. Fruit trees and shrubs 
may be transplanted, but it should have been 
done in November. 




Only Imagination. 



i^. 



cjiyr OS T every mortal thinks his burden very 
Q^ hard to bear — 

He thinks so, but 'tis all imagination. 
The yoke of any other would be easier to bea> — 

He thinks so, bttt 'tis all imagination. 
And the othe?~sfor the happy long ago ever sigh, 
ll'hile some are longing for the better days of 

by-and-by ; 
But all could make the present bright and 
happy if the yd try — 

'Tis gloomy only in imagination. 



Extraordinary Seasons. 

In i 172 the temperature on the continent of 
Europe was so high that leaves came out on 
the trees in January, and birds hatched their 
broods in February. In 1289 the winter was 
also very mild, and the maidens of Cologne wore 
wreaths of violets and corn-flowers at Christmas 
and on Twelfth Day. 

In 1 42 1 the trees flowered in the month of 
March, and the vines in the month of April. 
Cherries ripened in the same month, and grapes 
appeared in May. In 1572 the trees were 
covered with haves in January, and the birds 
hatched their young in February, as in 11 72 ; 
and in 1585 the same thing was repeated, and it 
is added that the corn was in ear at Easter. 

There was in France neither snow nor frost 
throughout the winters of 1538, 1607, 1609, 1617, 
and 1659. 



A soukce of what may be called accidental 
revenue, falling to those of the provincial banks 
that have the right to issue their own notes, 
arises from the occasional destruction or loss of 
the notes issued. One of the provincial banks 
had almost achieved a large windfall of this sort 
several years ago by a strange hallucination on 
the part of an eccentric customer. 

A shareholder who wished to benefit the bank 
in which he was interested deposited in the ordi- 
nary way several thousand pounds. The money 
lay in the banker's hands at interest for some 
time. On a particular day he withdrew the full 
amount in the notes of the Bank. 

On reaching home he was seen by one of his 
household (who was apparently too much 
astonished to interfere) placing the bundle of 
bank-notes on the fire, expediting their destruc- 
tion by putting the poker through them into the 
flame. 

On being asked by interested relations what 
he meant by such a proceeding, he gave this 
curious reason in justification — that a bank made 
profits when its notes were destroyed. Now, he 
was a shareholder of the bank whose notes he 
had most effectually destroyed ; and, of course, 
his dividends would be so much increased by the 
transaction ! 

It was naturally not quite an easy matter to 
convince the bank officials of the truth of so im- 
probable a story, and the affair was made more 
difficult from the fact that in the North the 
number of notes issued by the banks are not pre- 
served, as is invariably the case in the issue of 
Bank of England notes. Before the necessary 
guarantees could be accepted, the bank in ques- 
tion had, at great inconvenience and cost, to call 
in all its outstanding ^100 notes.

Heligoland. 



Heligoland, or Holy 
Land, is an island thirty- 
six miles north of the 
Elbe mouth. ■ It was cap- 
tured by this country from 
Denmark in 1807, and 
was retained by us till the 
autumn of 1890, when it 
was transferred to Ger- 
many. " Never before . 
probably in its whole his- I 
tory ; " says one writer, 
writing in 1891, "has this 
tiny island received so 
much attention from the 
civilised world as dur- 
ing the past year. The 
announcement in June, 
1890, of its proposed 
transference, under the 
terms of the Anglo- 
German agreement re- 
specting Africa, from 
British to German rule, 
came as a complete sur- 
prise upon the public of 
both countries, and vari- 
ous opinions were speedily 
elicited as to the propriety 
of the step contemplated. 
In Germany it was uni- 
versally applauded, but 
several politicians in this 
country insisted on the 
importance of the island 
as a naval station, and 
argued that the Heligo- 
landers were averse to the 
change, and that their 
wishes should have been 
more carefully ascer- 
tained." These protests, 
however, proved unavail- 
ing, and on the 9th of 
August the island was 
formally handed over by 
the English Governor, the 
ceremony being followed 
by a visit from the Em- 
peror on the next day, 
when a _ proclamation 
was read in which Hh 
Majesty promised the ut- 
most care for the rights j 
and wishes of the islanders, i 



GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Half-hardy plants that have been sheltered 
during the winter may be uncovered about the 
middle of the month ; such as have been housed 
may be brought out and planted in beds or 
allowed to stand in pets as required. This is a 
favourable time for putting in cuttings of double 
wall-flowers, rockets, and other hardy perennials. 
If heartsease be now propagated by cuttings, and 
placed in a shady border, it will flower in the 
autumn, and the largest flowers will be produced 



by these young plants. Continue the scwin~ of 
peas ; those already up will require sticking. 
Plant potatoes and sow radishes. Sow mustard 
and cress. To procure a succession, sow cress 
once a month and mustard once a fortnight. The 
ground should be made level and watered, and 
the seed thickly scattered and not covered with 
earth, but merely pressed into the soil with a flat 
board or the back of a spade. Keep a sharp 
look-out for weeds.

THE TRANSFER OF HELIGOLAND : HOISTING THE GERMAN FLAG 



News about Himself. 



i®Z 



tfjyTR. FRITH the artist, in his autobio- 
Q&- graphy, tells an amusing story of a portrait 
of himself by himself, which he purchased forty- 
five years after it had been painted. He dis- 
covered it in a shop in Great Portland Street. 

"'That,' said the lady of the shop, 'is the 
celebrated artist Frith, painted by himself.' 

" ' Frith !' said I ; ' why, he must be old. 

*' ' Well, sir, but he was young once ; and that's 
what he was when he was young.' 

"'Hum, ha !' said I, pretending to examine 
the picture. ' Not much of a picture.' 

" ' I beg your pardon ; judges think it a very 
fine picture.' 

" ' Well, what is the price ? ' 

" ' Twenty pounds.' 

" ' Surely that is a stiff price,' said I. 

" ' Well,' said the woman, ' it cost us nearly as 
much. You see, it is very valuable, because 
the artist is diseased.' 

" ' Deceased ! ' I exclaimed. ' Dead, do you 
mean ?' 

"'Yes, sir. Died of drink.' 

" ' Surely,' I exclaimed, ' you are wrong ! ' _ 

" ' About the drink ? Oh, no, sir ; most artists 
is very dissipated. He was dreadful, Frith was. 
I daresay you have seen the print called "The 
Railway Station." Well, my husband used to see 
him when he was doing of it, always more or less 
in liquor. It wore him out at last— the drink did.' 

" ' Why,' said I, ' how can that be, when Itell 
you a friend of mine saw him the other day ? ' 

" ' Not Frith, your friend didn't. How could 
he, when he's dead and buried, as I well know, 
for my husband attended his funeral I •-'■' 

The picture was purchased by Mr. Frith at 
the price demanded, but the artist informs us 
that he did not think it worth while to tell the 
woman that he was only once drunk in his life. 



What You Please. 

SjliTHE great have always been flattered, but 
■&* never was adulation carried further than on 
the part of a lady of honour to Queen Anne. The 
queen having asked her what the time was— 
" Whatever time it may please your majesty ! " 
was the reply. 

The Secret Lover. 



LIVES there the soulless youth, whose eye 
That ruby-tinted lip could see, 
Nor long for thee to live or die ? 

How unlike vie ! 
Or see that cheek" s pomegranate glow ; 
Yet think of anything but thee, 
Cold as that bosom heaving snow ? 

How tinlike me ! 
Or see thee o'er the golden wire 
Bend with such lovely zviichery, 
Nor feel each tone like living fire ? 

Hozv unlike me ! 
Or see thee, in the evening dance, 
Float, like the foam upon the sea, 
Nor drink sweet poison from thy glance ? 

How unlike 7>ie ! 
Or hear thy hymn, at moonlight rise, 
Soft as the humming of the bee, 
Nor think he sits in Paradise ? 

How unlike me ! 
Or see thee in thy simplest hour, 
Szveet as the rose upon the tree, 
Nor long to plant thee in his bozver ? 

Hozv unlike me! 
But lives there one who vainly tries 
To look the freest of the free, 
And hide the wound by which he dies ? 

A h ! hozv tike me ! 
—From the Persian of Jaumi.

Shropshire. 

This pleasantly situated 
inland county has several 
historical associations of 
great interest. It was 
within its boundaries that 
Caradoc struggled against 
Vespasian in 51 a.d. A 
connected chain of mili- 
tary works was erected by 
him over the southern and 
western districts of the 
county, the most import- 
ant being Caer Caradoc, 
where he is said to have 
made his last stand. 
Wroxeter, situated a little 
to the west of the Wrekin, 
occupies the site of the 
ancient Roman city Uri- 
conium, of which a portion 
of the wall still remains. 
Throughout Shropshire 
there are many remains 
of Roman camps. After 
the Romans had retired 
from Britain, the province 
of which Shropshire 
formed a part was an- 
nexed to the Kingdom of 
the Saxons by Offa, who, 
about 765, caused Watt's 
Dyke to be erected to 
keep out the Welsh. 
There are several import- 
ant old ecclesiastical 
ruins in Shropshire, in- 
cluding Wenlock Priory, 
once very wealthy; Lilles- 
hall Abbey, founded in 
the reign of Stephen ; 
Shrewsbury Abbey, 
founded in 1083 ; and 
Buildwas Abbey, one of 
the finest ruins in the 
county, founded in 1135. 
There are numerous pic- 
turesque lakes and pools 
in Shropshire. Of these 
the largest is Ellesmere. 
It is situated near the 
borders of Denbigh and 
covers a hundred and 
sixteen acres. 



GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Garden flowers now make a fine show. This 
is the time for laburnums, honeysuckles, lilies, 
early roses, etc. Young plants of pelargoniums, 
fuchsias, etc., which will be required for autumnal 
window plants, should now be moved into well- 
drained pots and plunged into a border. Com- 
mence the grafting and budding of roses. Take 
up the bulbs of tulips, hyacinths, etc., as soon as 
the leaves grow yellow. Keep them dry in paper 
bags till the season for planting comes round 
again. Some of the quick-flowering annuals, 
such as Virginia stocks, may still be sown, and the 
more tender kinds which have been reared in a 



hot-bed planted out. Cuttings of verbenas and 
heliotropes now strike readily. Plentifully water 
newly-planted seedlings and all hot-house plants. 
Sow mustard and cress the same as last month. 
Sow the last crop of long-pod beans and peas for 
the season. Turnips are to be sown for succession 
in the first week of the month, and for a full 
autumn crop in the third week. Train the sum- 
mer shoots of all sorts of wall and trellis trees. 
Net over cherry-trees to protect them from birds. 
If plants are infested with worms, water them 
with lime-water as the surest means of getting 
rid of them. 



6tll MOIlth..l The dead and only they, should do nothing. T30 DayS, 




Murder Will Out. 

An awakened memory has often been found to 
rouse a dormant conscience. In the days of his 
youth a man had killed his wife, a woman who 
had loved, trusted, and enriched him. The 
murder had been deliberate and cruel, and so 
well planned that the missing woman was ac- 
counted not "dead," but only as having "dis- 
appeared.'' 

Her murderer went abroad, maintained his 
respectability, and returned to his native land. 
He had been many years away, and in the once 
familiar suburb of the great city in which he 
took up his abode, he found everything utterly 
changed. 

One evening, however, wandering about, he 
turned down a short lane where old grey cot- 
tages, behind long rank green gardens, stood 
just as they had done when he had walked down 
that lane in the gloaming, speaking tender, 
wooing words to the woman he had afterwards 
done to death. At that moment his apparently 
dead sin leaped to its dreadful resurrection, and, 
unable to bear to confront it alone, he hastened 
at once to the authorities with confession and 
self-surrender, and was shortly afterwards tried 
and executed. 



frigate returning from a cruise early 
in this century came off Plymouth, and 
the captain invited a few friends to dine on board, 
promising them a sail, as it was a fine day. They 
went, and enjoyed it much ; but as they were 
tacking to return to port a cutter came up with an 
order from Government for him to sail instantly 
to the West Indies with some sealed packets to 
the Admiral on that station. There was nothing 
to be done, therefore, but to take his company 
with him and give them such a view of the West 
Indies as they neither expected nor desired. 



A Blessing in Disguise. 



" My life was saved by having my salary re- 
duced," said a robust middle-aged man. 

The remark naturally excited surprise. 

"Yes," continued the man, " that was what 
saved me. I was assistant bookkeeper for a 
wholesale house, and was earning 1,200 dols. a 
year. Something happened, no matter what, and 
I was thrown out. I was idle for two months, 
and then went to work for 750 dols. At that time 
I was thin and weak, and couldn't walk a mile to 
save a dollar. At any rate, I thought I couldn't. 
But when my income was so fearfully reduced I 
found it absolutely necessary to economise, and 
I did so by walking home from my work, a dis- 
tance of about five miles. It pretty nearly killed 
me at first. Then I bsgan to enjoy it. Within 
three months I was walking both ways, and I've 
kept it up ever since. Ten miles a day, summer 
and winter, unless during a hard storm, and look 
at me ! One hundred and eighty pounds, the 
appetite of an ostrich, and not a day's sickness in 
ten years. You see, gentlemen, how it was that 
the cutting-down of my salary saved my life."

The 
Queen of Roumania. 

Elizabeth, Queen of 
Roumania, whom every- 
body knows as " Car- 
men Sylva," visited this 
country in the autumn of 
1890. This distinguished 
foreigner, who has more 
title than any other 
royalty to the name of 
"literary queen," is the 
daughter of Prince Her- 
man of Wied, and is now 
forty-eight years of age. 
Were we to cite all her 
Majesty's published works 
they would be legion, and 
many others remain in 
the sacred precincts of 
her boudoir. The " Tales 
of the Carpathians," the 
libretto of an opera, a 
volume of "Thoughts," 
" Roumanian Poems," 
"Jehovah," "Mein 
Ruhe," and many others, 
have been translated into 
many languages. The 
opera Neaga, the libretto 
of which was written 
by " Carmen _ Sylva," 
was performed with great 
success at Stockholm. 
The scene of the opera 
lies in Roumania, and 
convicts who are con- 
demned to pass their lives 
in the salt mines are 
introduced. Peasant life 
is admirably depicted 
throughout, and the 
national costumes to be 
worn on the stage were 
sent from the Elizabeth 
School at Bucharest. 

On her visit to England 
the Queen of Roumania 
resided for some time in 
Wales, and when there 
attended the Welsh Eis- 
teddfod. On her leaving 
Wales she went for a short 
visit to our Queen at Bal- 
moral, arriving there on 
the 2nd of October. 



GARDENING TOR THE MONTH. 



The flowering of plants reaches its height this 
month. Continue to take up bulbs as the foliage 
decays, and place annuals or other plants in the 
places left vacant. In showery weather thin out 
annuals ; they will supply the plants wanted for 
filling up. Pipings of pinks and carnations may 
be_ struck, and layers may be laid down about the 
middle of the month. Bud roses. Cut down 
pelargoniums that have done blooming, and take 
what cuttings are required ; they will now strike 



readily. Lettuce plants and plants recently 
sown must be watered in dry weather. Peas and 
scarlet-runners now require sticking, and potatoes 
must have the earth drawn round the roots. 
Plant out broccoli and celery. Roses, elder, 
lavender, and other plants are now gathered for 
distilling. Propagate pot herbs by slips and 
cuttings, Budding — of use in the case of many 
fruit trees, and the chief means of propagating 
roses — is the principal operation of the month.

QUEEN ELIZABETH OF KOUMANIA VISITING THE QUEEN AT BALMORAL. 



Sleeping in Church. 

JOHN LASSENIUS, a celebrated divine, who 
*£y died at Copenhagen in 1692, and who had 
for a long time perceived, to his vexation, that 
during his sermons the greatest part of the con- 
gregation were asleep, on one occasion suddenly 
stopped, pulled a shuttlecock from his pocket, 
and began to play with it in the pulpit. 

This extraordinary circumstance naturally 
attracted the attention of that part of the congre- 
gation who were still awake. They jogged those 
who were sleeping, and in a short time everybody 
was lively, and stared up to the pulpit with the 
greatest wonder. 

This was just what Lassenius desired ; for he 
immediately began a most severe castigatory 
discourse, saying, "When I announce to you 
sacred and important truths, you are not 
ashamed to go to sleep ; but when I play the 
fool, you are all eye and all ear." 



On Going to Law. 

Thousands are ruined by going to law. Many 
of these are honest and ignorant people, who, 
thinking they have been wronged, lose their 
tempers, and rush off to a lawyer. Lawyers 
would be more than human if they were to put in- 
superable objects in the way of would-be liti- 
gants. Some people are always going to law ; 
rich men these must have been when they began. 
But the majority get tired of it after at most two 
lawsuits. 

Winning is only a degree better than losing, 
and it is impossible to be sure of winning. 
There are two sides to all questions, and your 
adversary's side may have more right on it 
than you fancy. If not, a bad case will put a 
counsel on his mettle. Every case is a good 
one until there is a better. 



A Pious Direction-Post. 

^£|\N the highway near Bicton, , in Devon- 

(27 shire, in the centre of four cross-roads, 
there used to be, and perhaps still is, a directing- 
post with the following inscriptions, by attention 
to which the traveller learns the direction of the 
roads_ over which he has to pass, and at the same 
time is furnished with food for meditation : — 

" To Woodbury, Topsham, Exeter. — Her 
ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths 
are peace. 

" To Brixton, Ottery, Houiton.—O hold up 
our goings in Thy paths, that our footsteps slip 
not. 

" To Oiterton, Sidmouth, Culiiton, a.d. 1743. 
— O that our ways were made so direct that we 
might keep Thy statutes. 

" To Btidleigh. — Make us to go in the paths of 
Thy Commandments, for therein is our desire." 

Unrecognised. 



A SEED came floating- near me, 

A brown and paltry thing, 
It seemed an idle pastiine 

To stay its hasty wing. 
But, to! my neighbour grasped it, 

And 'fieath he?- watchful care 
It grew and gave her freely 

A wreath of blossoms rare. 
And then, the plant beholding, 

My tears fell freely down, 
The seed was, oh ! so paltry, 

And light as thistle-down. 
Why 7uas there none to whisper, 

" "Tis opportunity ! " 
The bloom and fragrarice yonder 

Would the?i have been for me.

t{]Tr F ladies wish to get into the very best corn-

pleasanter way than is detailed in this beautiful 
scrap from a German poet :— 
' ' A flower do but place near thy window glass, 
A nd through it no image of evil shall pass. 
A broad must thou go ? on thy white bosom 

wear 
A nosegay, and doubt not an angel is there ; 
Forget not to water at break of the day 
The lilies, and thou shatt be fairer than they ; 
Place a rose near thy bed, nightly sentry to 

keep, 
And angels shall rock thee on roses to sleep." 



A Proud Welsh Boy. 

ttfiS PROUD Welsh boy at school, hearing 
qS^ that an English duke employed six men 
cooks during the period that he kept open house, 
or rather open castle in the north, sneered at the 
alleged magnificence. 

" My father does better than that," said Grif- 
fith ap Jones ; "at our very last party before I 
left Cmydrdlmnynddryd we had twenty-four 
men cooks all employed in dressingthe supper." 
This would have gone down easily, and Grif- 
fith ap Jones would have established his paternal 
magnificence for ever, had not a companion of an 
inquiring turn of mind discovered the real state 
of the case, and announced to his school-fellows 
that although the Welshman had spoken truly, 
the company at the supper to which he alluded 
consisted of twenty-four of his near relations, 
and that every man toasted his own cheese !

Waterloo. 

A MEMORIAL tO tbe 

heroes of Waterloo was 
unveiled bythe Duke of 
Cambridge in the Evere 
Cemetery at Brussels, on 
the 26th of August, 1890. 
The ever - memorable 
Battle of Waterloo was 
fought on Sunday, the 
18th of June, 1815, in a 
plain about two miles 
from the village of Water- 
loo and twelve miles 
south from Brussels. The 
contending forces were 
the French army of 
72,000 men and 246 guns 
under Napoleon, and the 
Allies, commanded by 
the Duke of Wellington. 
The latter, with 67,661 
men and 156 guns, re- 
sisted the various attacks 
of the enemy from ten 
in the morning until five 
in the afternoon. About 
that hour 16,000 Prus- 
sians reached the field of 
conflict, and by seven 
the force under Bliicher 
amounted to over 50,000 
men with 104 guns. 
Wellington then moved 
forward with his whole 
army. A total rout fol- 
lowed, and the slaughter 
was immense. Of the 
British 93 officers and 
1,916 men were killed and 
missing, and 363 officers 
and 4,560 men wounded ; 
total, 6,932. The aggre- 
gate Allied loss was 23, 185. 
The French had 1^,500 
killed and wounded, 7,803 
prisoners (some French 
accounts raise the list of 
hors de combat to 32,000) 
and 227 cannon captured. 
This battle annihilated the 
power of Napoleon. He 
returned to' Paris and 
abdicated. 



GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



Dahlias and some hardy annuals are still in 
flower. Place auriculas under shelter for the 
winter at the end of the month ; but they should 
still have as much light and air as is consistent 
with shielding them from frost and heavy rain. 
Take cactuses indoors, and give them very little 
water. Make cuttings of China roses. Plant 
out pinks in the beds where they are meant to 
flower. Thrift, daisy, or gentianella edgings may 
now be planted ; the earth should be pressed 
firmly round the roots by breaking it with the 
back of a spade. Dog's tooth violet, narcissus, 



crocus, snowdrop, and such like bulbs, if out of 
the ground, must now be planted. Earth up 
celery, and plant lettuce in a sheltered border for 
winter use. This is the best time for forming 
new beds of horseradish. Plant endive. Lift 
onions, and place them on a dry border or gravel 
walk. Keep down weeds, which now grow apace. 
Hazelnuts, acorns, blackberries, and elderberries, 
are now ready for gathering. Cider and perry 
are now made. The temperature of the year 
takes a turn. Last month the mean temperature, 
was 6i° 28', this month it is 6o° 14'.

The Avaricious Landlord. 
•Jtj 

^T7HE following clever trick was recently 
^ played upon an avaricious French landlord 
by a poor wretched engraver who had got into 
arrears with his rent. 

"Give me a little time," said the tenant ; "I 
have discovered a means of paying you soon." 

"Bah!" returned the landlord, incredulously, 
"how, I should like to know? " 

"Look here," replied the engraver, taking a 
hundred-franc note mysteriously from a drawer — 
" that's my last piece of work." 

"Did you do it?" 

" Certainly." 

"You yourself — and not the Bank of France?" 

"No, it's my work." 

" Will you trust me with it for half an hour ?" 

And the landlord took the note and hurried off 
to the Bank. There they assured him that it was 
perfectly good, and finally changed it for him. 

As he hurried back to his lodger the wretched 
man's head fairly swam with visions of untold 
wealth. " My good fellow," he cried, on reaching 
the house, all out of breath, " how clever you are ! 
Why don't you make thousand-franc notes?" 

" For the very good reason that I have never 
seen one." 

" That need be no obstacle — here is one. 
Copy it, and I will be back here in a week's 
time. We will share it." 

At the end of the week the landlord duly made 
his appearance. _ "How does the note get on?" 
was his anxious inquiry. 

"Your note! Why, I have spent it with two 
or three friends, you vagabond!" majestically 
replied the engraver. 

"Spent it! But—" 

"No noise, or I'll split!" And the man ex- 
plained to his landlord that he had outrageously 
taken him in, and that the hundred-franc note 
was perfectly good. He wound up by advising 
him to turn his avariciousness in another direction. 



An Even Temper. 

SHE Baron Maseres, who died in the early 
A part of this century, was of such an even 
temper that a celebrated chess player declared 
he was the only man he had seen whose counten- 
ance did not indicate whether he was winning or 
losing at that game ; and so averse was tho 
Baron to a dogmatising spirit that after seeing 
Dr. Johnson he expressed a wish that " he 
might never be again in that man's company." 



Life on the Ocean Wave. 



A WE T sheet and a flowing sea, 

A wind that follows fast, 
And Jills the white and rustling sail, 

And bends the gallant mast; 
And bends the gallant mast, my boys, 

While like the eagle free 
Away the good ship flies, and leaves 

Old England on the lee. 

" O for a soft and gentle wind! " 

I heard a fair one cry ; 
But give to me the snoring breeze 

A nd white waves heaving high ; 
And white waves heaving high, my lads, 

The good ship tight and free — 
The world of waters is our home, 

And merry men are we. 

There's temfiest in yon homed moon, 

A?id lightning in yon cloud ! 
But hark the music, mariners ! 

The wind is piping loud ! 
The witid is piping loud, my boys, 

The lightning Jl ashes free — 
While the hollow oak our palace is, 

Our heritage the sea.

An Imperial Visitor. 

The leading event of the 
summer of 1891 was the 
visit paid to this country 
by the Emperor and Em- 
press of Germany. They 
arrived at Windsor on 
Saturday, the 4th of July, 
and from that day till 
Monday, the 13th, when 
the_ Emperor started for 
Edinburgh, to go on 
board his yacht in the 
Frith of Forth, the Court 
chronicler had his pen 
busy with the description 
of a round of splendid 
hospitalities and imposing 
spectacles. These in- 
cluded the wedding at St. 
George's Chapel, Wind- 
sor, of the Princess 
Louise of Schleswig-Hol- 
stein and Prince Aribert 
of Anhalt ; a State ban- 
quet in St. George's Hall; 
a grand performance at 
the Opera ; a garden 
party at Marlborough 
House ; a State concert 
at the Albert Hall ; a visit 
to the City of London, 
when the Emperor ap- 
peared in "semi-state"; 
a State ball at Bucking- 
ham Palace ; a review of 
volunteers at Wimbledon; 
a dinner at the Crystal 
Palace, and a visit to Lord 
Salisbury's at Hatfield. 
The scene depicted by our 
artist is the presentation 
of an address in the Guild- 
hall on the occasion of 
the Emperor's visit to the 
City. With the excep- 
tion of the Queen's Jubi- 
lee there has not been tor 
many years a ceremony 
more successful, a pageant 
more splendid, or a wel- 
come more cordial, than 
witnessed by Londoners 
on that day. 



GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



There may be flowers in the garden in this and 
the following month. The common monthly 
rose and several varieties of laurustine are in 
blossom. Evergreen trees and shrubs are now 
in great beauty. Take up dahlia roots carefully 
in fine weather and label them. Let the roots 
dry gradually, and then lay them in a shallow 
box, cover them with sand, and house them in 
any dry place where they are free from frost. 
Plant tulips and hyacinths in beds as early in 
the month as possible. Plant them three or four 
inches deep and six inches apart. Protect them 



from heavy rains till the roots have taken firm 
hold of the soil. This can be done with fern 
leaves or straw fastened down by willow rods 
with the grass side downwards. Plant deciduous 
trees and shrubs whilst the weather continues 
favourable, and before the soil has parted with 
the solar heat absorbed during summer. Finish 
taking up potatoes, carrots, beets, and parsnips. 
Take up early broccoli, endive, late cauliflower, 
and lettuces, and lay them in an open shed or in 
old melon pits, which will protect them from 
frost, and afford a supply during winter.

THE GERMAN EMPEROR AT THE GUILDHA 



Changeable Matures. 



r(%V 



\\jJ\J, I LT thou dare to blame the woman for 
^&T her seeming sudden changes, 
Swaying east and swaying westward as the 
breezes shake the tree ? 
Fool, thy selfish thought misguides thee ; find 
the man that never ranges. 
Woman wavers but to seek him. Is not, then, 
the fault in thee? —Goethe. 



How to Succeed. 



" The advice I would give a young man," said 
Mr. Flood the millionaire to a young man one 
day, " who desires to become merely successful 
in life, is to remember one thing. There are few 
men who have so little that there will not be 
found others who will try to take it away from 
them. He will realise, sooner or later, that four 
men out of five with whom he comes into con- 
tact are endeavouring to get the better of him. 
It rests entirely with him to d cide whether he 
will get the better of them, or they of him. 

' Brains are what is wanted in the world, not 
experience. Mere clerks are a drug on the 
market. They cannot be entrusted to do you an 
important service, lor they never have been able 
to do one for themselves. 

" In employing a man, it is comfortable per- 
haps to find him with a good recommendation ; 
but this recommendation, to which the stereo- 
typed rules of business attach so much, will not 
save you from making a mis ake. You cannot 
throw the responsibility of a failure upon a piece 
of paper written by another man. A strong man 
will always judge tor himself. The more educa- 
tion, intelligence, and brains a man has, the more 
useful he is. Many men have acquired experi- 
ence ; few have profited by it." 



The Brazen Statue. 

<^M BRAZEN statue, the work of a famous 
Qj-r- sculptor, was melted by a great fire, so 
that nothing but a heap of metal was left. 
Another artist took this mass, and made from it a 
new statue, of the same subject, but far superior 
to the first in beauty. 

Envy saw it, and gnashed her teeth, but soon 
found some consolation: "The fellow could 
never have done anything half so good, if he had 
not had the old materials to work upon." 



A Long-Felt Want. 

" Well, sir," said the railway superintendent to 
a forlorn-looking man who had gained admittance 
to his presence, " what do you want?" " I would 
like a situation on your line." " No place for 
you, I think." " But there is ; T want to be in- 
terpreter." "Interpreter?" "Yes, sir; to tell 
the passengers what the porters say when they 
call out the n^mes of V e stations." The super- 
intendent studied a few minutes, and then, lo k- 
ing up, pointed to the door. 



Not a Matter of Conscience. 



There used to be a part of the country in the 
neighbourhood of Napes very much infested with 
robbers and murderers. A shepherd of that 
district, at confession, acknowledged with much 
sorrow and contrition that once on a fast-day he 
had drunk some drops of milk. 

"Does your conscience upbraid you with no 
other wickedness ? " said the father confessor. 

" None at all," replied the peniient. 

" Did you never join any of your countrymen 
in robbing and murdering passengers ?" 

"O yes! very often, good father; but we do 
not look upon that as a matter of conscience."

GARDENING FOR THE MONTH. 



The work to be executed in the flower-garden is 
much the same as last month. Tea-roses thnt 
aie in exp sed situations should be taken up and 
placed sa:ely out f the reach of f o-t. Any 
uchsias that are to remain out all the winter 
sh ■ 1 1 Id have their roots covered with litter or 
co,d-Hshes. In frosty weather sprinkle a little 
li^ht litter over any choice things in open beds. 
Make plantations of rhubarb, sea-kale, asparagus, 
and horseradish. Sow early peas and beans on 
dry warm slopes. A delicate salad may be 



obtained in five or six weeks by packing roots of 
dandelion in leaf-mould and putting them into 
gentle heat. Dig round old fruit trees If any 
trees grow too luxuriantly to bear well, root- 
prune them. Continue, if necessary, to make 
new drains, to improve water-courses, and to 
plant hedges Turn up the ground tnoroughly 
for exposure to the frost and snow. Inspect the 
fruit in the store-room at frequent and regular 
intervals, and remove whatever is found to be in 
a state of decay.

A Healthy Old Age. 

HOW TO AVOID PREMATURE OLD AGE. 

The following advice is given by Dr. Benjamin 
Ward Richardson : — 

To subsist on light but nutritious diet, with 
milk as the standard food, but varied according 
to the season. 

To take food in moderate quantity, four times in 
the day, including a light meal be fore going to bed. 

To clothe warmly but lightly, so that the 
body may in all seasons maintain its equal 
temperature. 

To keep the body in fair exercise, and the 
mind active and cheerful. 

To maintain an interest in what is going on in 
the world, and to take part in reason sble labours 
and pleasures, as though old age were not present. 

To take plenty of sleep during sleeping hours. 
To spend nine hours in bed at the least, and to 
take care during cold weather that the temperature 
of the bedroom is maintained at 60" Fahrenheit. 

To avoid passion, excitement, luxury. 



The Lion and the Gadfly. 

Oxce a lion was sleeping in his den at the foot of 
a great mountain. A gadfly that had been sipping 
the blood and froth from his mouth bit him 
severely. The lion started up with a roar, and, 
catching the fly in his huge paw, said, " Villain, 
you are at my mercy ! " 

"Sire," said the fly, " if you would pardon me 
now, and let me live, I shall be able to show ere 
long how grateful I am to you." 

"Indeed !" said the lion ; "whoever heard of a 
gadfly helping a lion? But still, I admire your 
• impudence, and grant your life." 

Some time after, the lion, having made great 
havoc on the cattle of a neighbouring village, 
was snoring away in his den after a heavy meal. 
The village hunters approached, with the object 
of surrounding him. The fly saw them, and, 
hurrying into the den, bit the lion. 

He started up with a roar as before, and 
cried, "Villain, you will get no pardon this 
time ! " 

"Sire," said the fly, "the village hunters are 
on their way to your d n ; you can't tarry a 
moment here without being surrounded and 
killed/' _ 

'" Saviour of my life ! " said the lion, as he ran 
up the mountain. "Nothing like forgiving, for 
it gives the humblest an opportunity of helping 
the highest."

twiNG to the large increase of our Business during the Season just J 
closing, we have found it necessary to make arrangements for the 
erection of a much larger Studio, and in this we have been very success- 
ful. 

Our many friends will be pleased to learn that we have leased that 
large Dwelling-house and Garden at 85 Castle Street, where we hope, 
before the .commencement of another Season's work, to be in a position 
to throw open to the Public commodious Reception and Dressing 
Rooms, in conjunction with our New Studio, which for size and 
excellent lighting will rank amongst the best. 

Residing on the Premises, the Public can always rely on our 
personal attention in the operating room. It is of the first importance 
for the Public to know that all Negatives are taken by us personally, 
and not at the hands of assistants. Every branch of work is under our 
own personal supervision, and our constant endeavour is, as far as lies 
in our power, to turn out the best and most artistic class of work. 

We would call special attention to our modelling and 
NEW PROCESS done in "ENAMEL STYLE," which gives 
the Photographs a beautiful, soft, and brilliant finish.

Reading for the Family Circle. 

HE selection of suitable reading for the various members of the household is 
a task of no small importance, seeing the vast influence which literature 
has in the formation and development of character. 

Let us first say a few words in 
regard to Magazine Literature. 
The appearance of the Magazine at 
the commencement of each month 
is nowadays a feature of decided 
interest to the family circle. A 
gentle flutter of subdued excitement 
is stirred by the appearance of 
the familiar blue wrapper of The 




s eyes followed erica." (From The Quiver.) 



Quiver, the equally well-known yellow cover of Cassell's Magazine, or by the 
sight of the other Periodicals which issue in such profusion from the Belle 
Sauvage Press. First and foremost amongst these, with a strength derived from 
a career of thirty years, stands 

Tile Quiver, for Sunday and General Reading. 
This Magazine was recently enlarged from 64 to 80 Pages Monthly, and the 
amount of reading which is furnished in these 80 large pages must be seen to be 
fully comprehended. Those unacquainted with the Magazine are invited to order 

the November Part (price 6d.), which commences the rTew Volume 



and contains an exquisite Picture in Colours by RI. I. Dicksee, the commence- 
ment of New Serial Stories, Papers by well-known Divines, Short Stories by popular 
writers, Lesson-Helps for Sunday School Teachers, Original Poems, a Hymn 
Tune by an eminent composer, Addresses and Stories for Children, Short Arrows 
(containing a record of good work at home and abroad), and is illustrated 
with about 30 Engravings by leading artists. The Quiver is, as The Rock 
points out, "an amazing sixpennyworth," and, as the Saturday Riyiew 

remarks, " best of all the Magazines for Sunday Reading." 

Whilst The Quiver is essentially the Magazine for Sunday, 

Cassell's Family Magazine 




holds a foremost .position in the esteem of the household for every-day reading. 
In a recent general plebiscite it stood at the head of the poll. Nor is this result 
surprising when it is remembered how thoroughly interesting the Magazine is. 
The Editor makes a special point of providing subjects of it ..crest for each member 
of the family. The best of Serial Stories, the most valuable information as to 
Cookery and Domestic Matters, the most reliable counsel on Health and everyday 
Legal Matters, the most helpful hints for the Garden, the prettiest of Piano Pieces, 
and the most delightful Songs, the latest and best information about Dress, descrip- 
tions of the newest Inventions and Discoveries ; these are but samples of the attrac- 
tions which 'Cassell's Magazine contains, and which are exemplified in The 
December Part (price jd.), which commences a New Volume. Truly Cassell's 
Magazine, as The Queen remarks, " ought to be in every household." 
CASSELL & COMPANY, Limited, Ludgate Hill, London. 



/"[XL the younger members ot the family between the ages of six and 
K~. 1 eighteen will find something in the pages of 

"Little Folks" Magazine 

to interest, amuse, or instruct them. The January Part (price 6d.) will 
be, perhaps, the most attractive that has ever been published. With that issue will 

be given away "The Little Folks " Birthday Album for 1892, 




(From Little Folks.) 

illustrated with 12 full-page engravings from designs by Alice Havers, and 
containing a suitable motto for every day in the year, with space for record- 
ing the birthdays of relations and friends, or securing their autographs. This 
will be the Editor's special New Year's Gift to his readers. The Part will, 
moreover, be full of good Stories and pretty Pictures, entertaining Papers, Poems, 
Puzzles, &c. All those who are desirous of securing a copy on the day of 
publication will do well to order the January Part of "Little Polks" 
at once. It should be mentioned that the Christmas Volume of "Little 
Folks " (3s. 6d.) forms the most delightful present for children. 

CASSELL & COMPANY, Limited, Ltidzale IlilL London. 



THE NEW SERIAL PUBLICATIONS 

of Messrs. Cassell & Company are this season of special interest. They 
embrace the following important works : — 

A New Fine-Art Work, in Monthly Parts, price 7cl., entitled 

Historic Houses of the United Kingdom, 

presenting a delineation by pen and pencil of the principal ancestral homes of 
Great Britain and Ireland. The text is furnished by well-known writers, whose 
descriptive accounts are full of interesting facts, and lightened by anecdotal 




weleeck abbey. (From Historic Houses of the United Kingdom.) 

reminiscences of illustrious persons, past and present. Historic Houses will 
be profusely and appropriately illustrated with high-class Engravings. 

An entirely New and Revised Edition, in Monthly Parts, price 7d., of 

The Story of the Heavens, 

by. Sir Robert Stawell Ball, LL.D., F.R.A.S., Royal Astronomer of 
Ireland, with Coloured Plates and Numerous Illustrations. With Part 1 is 
given a large and valuable Star Map, and the Part has been several 
times reprinted to meet the requirements of the public. 

" It is doubtful," says the Scotsman, " whether any previous effort to popularise astronomy — 
in our language, at any rate— deserves to rank as hiahly as the delightful and most instructive 
work which the Royal Astronomer for Ireland happily entitles The Story of the Heavens. 
Sir Robert Ball not only astounds the imagination, but convinces the reason of his readers." 

CASSELL & COMPANY, Limited, Ludgate Hill, London. 



A New Work, uniform with "The World of Adventure," has just been 
commenced in MoN'iiHLY Parts, 7d., entitled 

The "World of Romance, 

fully Illustrated with New and Original Engravings. 

" The World of Romance" will form a representative collection from the 
romance of all ages and all countries. Its pages will tell of the exploits 

■■mmmm 




'the stranger bowed." (From The World of Romance.) 



and adventures of gods and heroes ; of giants and fairies ; of mermaids, 
hydras, and chimosras dire ; of ghosts and vampires ; stories of knight errantry 
and chivalry will take their place with tales by the modern masters of romance. 
There will be stories of fear and stories of gallantry ; stories to chill the blood and 
stories to make it run briskly in the veins. With Part 1 is issued a 

Large Presentation Plate. 

A Facsimile Copy of Shakspere's Will is presented with every copy 
of Tart I (price 7d.) of the New Serial Edition of 

The Royal Shakspere. 

With numerous Pull-Page Steel Plates and Y/ood Engravings 
from Original Designs by Frank Dicksee, R.A., F. Barnard, V. W. 
Bromley, M. E. Edwards, C. Green, C. Gregory, A. Hopkins, J. 
McL. Ralston, P. Skelton, J. D. Watson, H. M. Paget. The Edition 
includes a Valuable Introduction and Life of Shakspere by F. J. Furnivall, LL.D. 



A New Development of aitistic production is shown in the First Tart of the 
New Volume of 

The Magazine of Art 

(being the November Part, price is.), the frontispiece to which is produced in 
Colours by the new process of Chromotypogravure, which is calculated to have 
so important an effect on art reproduction in this country. 

A list of important features arranged for the forthcoming Volume will be 
found in the New Prospectus, a copy of which will be sent on application. 

" The exquisite beauty of the engravings in the Magazine of Art and the excellence of the 
letterpress," remarks the Standard, "should carry the Magazine into every home where Art 
is appreciated."
