Don't commit Jho folly of suppos ing that, becauso yon trust tho bank with your money, the bank ought to trust, you ny paying your ovord rails. 10. Don't suppose you can bohave oauiy in one hank and Bland well with llio others. oii loruci thoro is Clearing House. 1 1.

Don't think il unreasonable if your bunk declines to discount an ae commodalion note. Havo a cloar definition of an accommodation note. It is a nolo for which no value has passed Irom endorser to the drawer. If you want your bank discounted, tell your bunk frankly that it is not, ia tui'ir uenniiton, a Dttsiness nolo. 13.

This is only chaff. 17. I'on t riiarrel with a toller be cause ho does not pay you in money exuttly as you wish. As a general rule, he docs the best be csn. IS. In all your intercourse with bank ollicers, treat them with tho some courtesy and candor that you would expect and desire if the situa tions were rovorM'd. ID. Don't sond ignorant and stupid messengers to bank lo transact your business. In some parts ol India it is unnleas ant for an elderly person to havo to die. Along tho Ganges, when a man is givon up as past medical power to cure, nis relatives urag him to the bank of the sacred river and plaster holy mud into his cars, his noso and his mouth. It is tho correct thing for him to submit to this, lor tho mud is sup. posed to have a sanctifying power which, while helping bim out of this world, gives him prospective lift for the world to come, ilavinc half motb. crca the dying man bis pious relatives carry him to a placo where vultures aro hovering around and awailinc- his demise and that of such other persons as may be left thore under similar cir cumstances. These birds of prey main tain a dignified and silent composure until the invalid bus breathed his Inst gasp. But the momont life has fled they pounce on tbo remains of tho do ceased and begin their meal, which they conlinuo until nothing Is loft but bones. Tbo Hindoo who thus places his grondfulher in tba wav of beino- disposed of considers that he has done lor the old man tbo very best thing in the world, and that this course of treat ment will land the patient in tho seventh heaven, or very near it. This sort of funeral rito docs not ex tensively prevail Id this country, for public sentiment ia against il. and wo aro short of vultures. A very near ap proach however, is chronicled as oc curring in Indiana, whoro a man lies k with consumption. Dosnito all the advertised nostrums and all tho attentions ot. the regular fucully this emaciated invalid is given ovor to deutb It would be a kind and Chris tian deed to let him die in peaco. But, unfortunately, tho consumptive is in sured, and as tho company insuring bim has not goDe into bankruptcy be is, to the extent of tho policy on bim. a valuable piece of property. There fore ho has not been carted off to tho banks of tho Wabash to die a lonely death, but instead ol thai ho has been stolen and taken away from his wilo to ino nomo ol his own bood rolutions. These bloodthirsty poisons claim to bavo an insurable interest in his life, or rather in bis death. Thoy know that in all human probability ho must die very soon, and they want to mako out of tho poor fellow whatever they can as much, indeed, as there is in him. Ut course there is a fight betwoen them and tho man's wife. Hhe, too, has an ni6uruuio interest in tbo remains, and proposes to have her riirhts if sho can. She has no idea of being swindled out oi sucn a vaiiiaoio piece ol goods as an insured husband. She has therofor.o, in order to securo justico to herself, brought an action at law against hor husband's relations to compel them to restore tho stolen properly. This is stoutly resisted by the roluiionB who nave possession. They say thoy will see tho wile in a certain very hot place before they restore the botly of the almost dead invalid. Tbey consider that thoy have aright to tho insured property by reason of having in oilier ways brought him in dobt to them. The wife struggles loget possession of him on a hubeus corpus, but thoy allege that he ! now so fur gono that to cart hitn over to whero tho wife lives would only be to turn corpus into corpse. Tbe battle rugos and the poor fellow is made nervous over the annrehonsioii ot oeing mauc a loot hall ol and tukon back and lorlh ns opposinir cousel mav havo luck in obtaining decisions, orders anu injunctions Horn various courts. Ho rottlixos that he is a person of con- siderublo importunco. yet ho wishes ho nau never seen that Ills insurance policy which is thocuusoof his present unsettled situation. It is sometimes said of a man whoso position is poorly deli tied that he does not know whether or not bis soul is bis own. Wbatover may bo the extent of this man's knowl edge regarding the spiritual entity, it is piaui mat oe cannot Know to whom his body beloncs. Sucb'a contest liko this over tho body ol an almost expiring man ia quite as disgracoltil as anything prac ticed on tbe dying by the itnrogenerato Hindoos. It would be a pleasant thing to bear about tho timo this man dies that llie company insuring him had A QCESTIOS 1PF WORDS. Should we say and write 'railroad,' or 'railway?' A road, tho dictionary informs us, is a place where one may rido, an open track, a track for travel. A way is a generic thing (on the sumo authority), denoting miy line for pass age of convenience. tiA highway was originally a way raised on tho level fur dryness. A road suy the dictionary, ia nirieiiy a way lori uorsus and car riages. In this couolry, and. annar. ently, in England, Judging by 'the King's highway' thi) word 'high' has come to havo the sigtiillcanco of 'ooon' and 'public,' and wlick wo spouk of be ing -on tue nignwaw wo mean tbe public and common rbud. But when wo say 'in my way' (.very rarely 'road' in-such sense), there appears to be a common recognition i 'way' aa tbe more generic worn. But in uso with out a compounding wonl, 'way' is rarely applied in tho Burnt scm) as 'road' thus, we do not speak walking or riding 'along the way ; wo iy 'right of way,' not 'road ;' nor is 'rotd' used except in 'railroad,' which is tin Amer ican term, as 'railway' is tho English. a imw roaus we ao not say 'ways which havo English ownership cr close cuiinouiion, sucn as tne ttno aid At lunlicand Groat Western, arootlcially, railway, and this torm is pmbubly making its 'way' slowly. It hat, how ever, at least tbo comparative disad vantage that, as yet, wo are not accus tomed to 'ways' as short for railvays, or to speak of tho 'waybed ;' on tbe olher hand 'way' has an advanttgo in not boing used to dusignato iistru monts of passage by ordinary voliiclea. Some other English terms are botior than our own : lor example, 'shore' ia better than 'stock,' the lutter laving several uses. Tbo English coaob,' on ruils, was obtained by transfer of word us woll as article, but it is low ex pressive than our 'car.' So 'stoker,' although correct, is ralher less idiom atie than fireman,' which ia mudo by the samo process with which children turn tbo gray coated 'carrier' ino 'loi ter man.' The English 'point' is cer tuinly belter than our 'switth' and 'driver, which in this country is short lor the largo wheel when used in con noclion with locomotives, is moro ex act lhau 'engineer,' who is not much more than an engine driver. 'Metals' would sound strange here as the desig nation of iron rails, and 'lino' would hurdly cscapo detection as foreign, in use lor ino -roaa or 'way.' T hero a however, an English term so expressive as applied lo capilul fixed in railways and manufacturing enterprises, mi it would bo well to tiulurulize it tbo word 'plat.'

Tho Philadelphia Record my: Prof. Haunt, of the University ol Pennsvl. vania, read a paper on "Slroot Travel" before tho Enginoers' Club on a recent Saturday night. Ho stated that tho population of what may ho called the heart of the city, i. e., the district notinilcd by tbo two rivers, Washing ton avenue on tho south and Poplar sued on ino norm, nuti decreased in tho last 10 years by 20,000, showini? strong drift of population toward tho outskirts ol the city. Outside of these limits, which aro everywhere dial ant at least a mile from the business cen tre, is a scattered population of about unw.ouu. 110 took tho caso ot a man whoso homo lay in a diagonal diroo tion from his placo of business, and calculated that in tho xigsag course which that laiyo class of men must tako thoy lose 40 per cent, in distance. He suggested that two now diagonal avenues bo opened. Tbo distunco sav ed by a diagonal street through tho heart of the city would bo a milo and a third. 'Iho reports of six of tho twelve passenger cai lines showed that they bad carried during the past year about 60,000,000 persons. Supposing tho six remaining lines to have bad about tho same numbor, this would make a tolal number of passenger ear ned of 100,000,000. Upon this and the average yearly expense to the poo plo of travel. Air.

Tho work is tho result of tho deliberations ot twocommitteos, oniiof fifiv learned Biblical scholars in England and one ol thirty in this country. The two commilleos did not meet together and tako action, but corresponded with each other and compared notes, and. as a general thing, wero able lo agree upon tho proper reading of tho texts. In oases ot disagiooment, tbo text of the British committee is used, but tbo reading of tho American committee is given in an appendix, so that tho reader or student has before him both translations. Tbo only copies of the hook in this country, according lo tho lYinet, aro thoso which have been sont to members of tbo American committee, of which tbo Rev. Dr. Philip SchafT is tho President, and they aro pledged not to show them to any person, or give any information as to tho changes mado in the texts of the King James version, until tho now version is form ally approved and adopted by tbo Con vocation of Canterbury. Dr. Scbaff announced that tho Convocation would meet early in Eehruary, and as soon as it approved tho version tho revised New Testament would bo givon to the world. The American committco bus taken out no convriiht on tho honk. and tho intention is to uivo it to tho publio free, as the old Bible has been givon. In a very few days at furthest, il tho Convocation approves of tho re vision, the book will bo published, and overybody will then bo at liberty lo tumparo ii wiui mo old version. Pkoiiaiily foii a Sensation Tho Now York Herald recently contained a double-leaded dispatch, dated at Cin cinnati, fromasourcoof which itspeuks editorially as Iriendly to Garfield, and the correspondent is supposed to be acquainted with his purposes. Tho air ol confidence about tbo dispatch suggests either that it is a sort oi semi- ollieial announcement from Mentor or another Herald hoax. There is noth ing specially new in tho subslance of the statement made.

These pleasing preparations for household adornment may bo made follows: Thore is a slow and quick mothod, tbo former is by procuring tho natural decomposition of the pulpy subslunco of tbo leaf by ex posuro to light in a dish ot water the quick method is by the use of a weak alkaline destructive solution, of union soda ana lime aro the active ogenls. By the slow mothod ono may proceed as follows: Tho loavos are laid nut smoothly in a pan or dish, and covered wilb rain water two or throe inches deep, and aro held down by means of shoots of glass resting on small stones at tho corner by which they aro prevented from pressing too closely on the leaves. They aro ox posed lo the sunlight in a warm win dow. In two or throe weeks they are examined, and ull thoso that have be come soft and pulpy aro romovod to anoiner uisn lo he cleaned. The rest aro loll until they, too, become soil. Tbo softened leaves are carefully ro- moveu one ny one uy being floated on lo a small shoot of gluss; tbe pulp is pressed out by means of a small stiff painter's brush or a tooth-brush, used by tapping up and down and not by a sweeping motion, lb is breaks up the pulp only, which is washed away by pouring water upon it from a pitcher. To mako this convenient, tho glass mny oe piacoa on two wooden bars rusting ou tho edges nf a deep dish with a towel under it. to catch the splashiiigB. iho quick method is as lullows: Four ounces of sal-soda are dissolvod in a quurt of hot water, two ounces of quicklime are added, and the two aro boiled for twenty minutes. Tho solu lion is cooled and strained. Tho leaves aro then boiled in this for ono hour, or until tbo pulp is easily removed, when it is washed off as already montionod. The fibres remain, leaving a perfect sKcioion or iramo work ol the leaf.

The skeletons are placed in a dish, oovorod with this solution and kept in a dark closet for two uays, watching in the meantime that the fibres are not sollened too much and thus injured. After bleach ing the loavos are Bleeped in clear solt water for a day, and then floated off upon a card and placed bolween soft napkins until dry. They aro then ready to be finally pressed, bont, ourled or arrangod in bouquets or groups. Crystahzod grasses and sprays are mado as follows: The bunches are first arrangod in a suitable manner, tied and secured ; a solution of four ounces ol alum lo a quart of boiling water is mado, and whon this has cooled lo about 90 degrees or blood bout, tho bunch of grass or louves is suspended in it in a deep jar from a rod placed across tho mouth of it ; us the liquid cools crystals of alum aro deposited upon overy spruy. the finer and smaller tho weaker tho solution is mado. This deposit of crystals occurs I in me cooling liquid because hot water dissolves moro alum than cold water, and as tbo water cools tbo excess ol alum forms crystals which attach them selves to any fibrous matter in contact with it moro readily than to anything else. Thoso crystals onlargo by ac cretion constantly, as long as there is an excess of ulum in tho solution. When the supply is exhausted tho solution is wanned and more alum is dissolved In it ; it is returned to tbe jur and the bunch of grasses is replaced.

The earliest works ol Christian art in Italy aro tho wall-paintings of tbo Ca'acombs. At first thoso wore merely abstract symbols: tbe Labarum, the Alpha and Omega, tho fish used as tho sign for tho numo ot Christ. Then moro pictorial emblems wero painted: the dovo, representing tho Christian soul freed Irom the body; tho peacock or phoenix, type of immortality : tho sheep, signifying the soul in tho earthly no. iuis lust emblem stands in im mediate connection with tbe earliest representation! of Christ as tbo Good Shepherd. This is the fuvoritcsubiect of tho Catacomb paintings. Ho is de picted as a beautiful youth in shop herd's dress carrying a lamb on bis shoulders, or leaning on his stall' in the miast oi a nock, or playing on a shop herd's pipo, whilo tho ahoep listen lo uiiii. iud mea. oi tueso pictures is certainly isimicul ; Put tbo artistio form is supposed to bo taken from an old Greek statue of Mercury carrying a kid, which oxiotcd nt Tunugro. For il must be observed with regard to tho ait of tbe early Church that once hav ing gained the right to exist, it adopt, cd without hesitation materials and forms which bad been invented by tbo heathen. Proceeding on the principle that what God hath cleansed man may not can unclean, the (Christians repeat ed in their religious pictures the types of faco, the methods of expression, the aritsiiu mannerisms, which aro found in tho wull-painlings of Herculanenm and Pompeii. They personified tho sun and tba moon, tbe ourtb and the sea, mountains and rivers. They even adopted heathen myths. In a besttti ful painting from tbo ceiling of the tomb of S. Domitilla, Christ is repre sented in the character of Orpheus playing upon bis lyre, while trees bend toward him, and wild beasts gather at bis feet. Mingled with these, symbols and allegories wo find the first beginnings of sacred historical painting. Tho sub jects aro chosen impartially from both Testaments, with this difference, that tbe scenes Irom tbe Old are used in a purely typical relation to the new dis pensation. Noub in the ark typifies the Christian saved in the ship ol the Church ; tbo history of Jonah prefig ures tho ministry and resurrection of Christ ; Daniel in tbo lion's tlen is an encouragement to Christian martyrs. Tho most common New Testament subjects aro, the Nativity ( with ox and ass kneeling), tbe Adoration ol tbo Magi, the miracle nt Cana, Christ heal ing the paralytic, multiplying tho loaves and fishes, and, most frequently, tho raising ot Lazarus from the dead. Lazarus is represented aaa mummy appearing at an open door, beloro which Jesus stands with a wand in his hand. Tho spiritot these pictures is purely symbolical.
