quired about twenty men to lilt it.
This was at Kagoya, a city famous for its
bronze, porcelain vases, cups, and dishes, its
wonderful enamel work called coimnne, and
its gay fans. Thousands of these Japanese
fans with which we cool our faces iu sum

after much toil and tho help of great der
ricks nnd tackling, the great object was
raised to its -place, thousands of persons
came from a distance to see the goldeu won

of thick paper, with very strong but light

and ayAii of bobs strqug enough-ti lift two
hundred pounds. No man could hold such
a kite. The rope was wound round a wind
less and paid out by on? person, while two
men and three boys held tho handcart. A
very dark, cloudy night, when a brisk wind
was up, was chosen. When all was ready
at midnight, the handcart was run out along
the moat the robber with prying-tools in

To make a long story short, the man was
caught, Tho sentinels were awakened, and
the crime detecttd. The robber was en
tenctd to die a cruel death to be boiled In
oil. His accomplices received various other
u'grct' of punishment. The 1'rlncc of
Owarl imued a decree forbidding the liv

How to Make a Hot-Bed.
A good hot-bed may bj made upon the
surface of the ground, piling up the manure
from two feet ix inches to three feet high,
and at least six inches wider all around than
the frame. This exlra width tends to pre
servo the heat within the frame; and if it ho
a foot wider than tho frame it would be bet
ter than six inches. The situation bhould
bo where the mil is dry ; and the bed should
front to the south or as uearly to tho south
ns the situation will permit. The sashes
should cither bo procured bfure the bod is
made, or their exact hize should bo known
when tho frame may bo made to hook close
ly togother, so as to be removed and easily
etored away wheu not in use. Fresh horso
manure is tho best manure to produco heat.
It should be thrown into a heap and wet
lightly about a week before it Is placed on
the bed and turned ovor once or twice before
using it to increoso the heat. When put on
tho.bed, tread it down firmly, and cover it
about six niches deep with light, rich soil,
and ascertain the degree of heat when you
lesire to sow your seeds, by pluuging a ther
mometer iu tho soil ; and if too warm wait a
day or two for tho bed to cool. Seeds will
stand at a brat of 00 degrees very well.
Sometimes seeds are sown in pots and pans,
which are plunged into tho manure without
any covering of soil ; but in such a case it
hould be covered threo or four inches deep
with sand or ashes to retain the heat. Wood
en boxes six inches deep, made of very thin
hoards, about two feet long and one foot
wide, would Le better than pans and pots
for some kind of plants. The bottom might
be zluc.or galvauized sheet iron, perforated
with small holea to allow water to pass
through them, if tho watering should be too
Tho Loss of Children.
Philip Gilbert Hamerton says: "When
children are not carried away iu little cof
fins, and laid forever in the silent grave
they become transformed so rapidly that we
use sight of them iu another way. Tho ath
letic young soldier or collegian, tho graceful
icroine of the ball room may make proud tho
parental heart; but cau they quite console it
ir the eternal loss of the little beings who
dagued and enlivened the early years of
marriage? A father may sometimes fed a
legitimate and reasonable melancholy as he
contemplates the most promising of little
daughters, full of vivacity and health. How
ongwiil Iho dear child remain to him ? She
will be altered In bIx months. In six years
sho will bo succeeded by a totally ditrerent
creature a creature new iu flesh nnd blood
and boue, thinking other thoughts and
peaking another languago. There is a sad
ness even in that change which is Increase
and progres-Jon for the glory of noonday
has destroyed tho sweet dollcacy of tho
lewy Aurora, and the wealth of summer has
obliterated tho freshnass of thesprlng."

TniNrKit'ii Devil. The orliiu of tlie
term "printer's devil" has been traced back
to Aldus Manutilus h printer ot Venice. In
the establishment of this worthy, was a no
gro boy who reudeiid usslstunace in the
maltifarlous work of the office, aud who,
on account of his dusky color, was believed
by the buperstlltous to be mi emissary of
the 1'riucn of Darkness, Prom tho notion
of the credulous, the boy gained the toubri
quet of "printer's devil," To dissipate
the ridiculous superstition, Manutilus one
day exhiblttd tln lad to tho populace with
the announcement "i Aldus Manutilus,
pi Inter to the Holy Chuich nnd Doge, have
this day made public exposure of the prin
ter's devil, mi who think that lie Is not
