Ifyou plese to remember, I told you yenUrday that the cash wa nearly eib.a,psted.'' "You see, my dear brother," said Liszt, smiling, "that for a moment I am no richer tbao yon ; but that does not trouble me. I havo credit, and I coo make read money start from tbe kejs of my piano. However as you are In baste to leave Prague and e luro borne, you shall not bo dolayod by my present want of funds."

Liszt bad Aoen a piano in tho parlor behind the fJjnp. He opened it, and ran his (Sogers over tlio keys ; then Hci.eJ by sudden inspiration, ho im provised one of those seul touchiug yinplioiiies peculiar to himself. As he sounded tbe first chord, a beautiful y.iung girl entered the rontn. Whilo tho melody continued she re. maiued speechless, and immovable ; then as tho lutl noto died awsy, she cried, with irrepressible CDthusiasm : "Bravo, Liszt ! 'tis wondrous !'' "Dost tlmu kuow hitu, then, cy daughter V asked Ihe jeweler. "This is the first timo that I have had the pleasure of necicg or hearing hitn,'' Jreplied she ; "but I do kuow that iiono livin g save Liszt could draw such sounds from tho piano." Exprossod with grace and modesty, by a young person of remarkable beauty, this admiration could col fail to be more than flattering to tbe arlint. However, after making bis acknowl edgements, Lisit witbdriw, la order to deliver tbo prisoner,aod was accom panied by lb jeweler. Grieved At his mistake, the wealthy merchant sought to repair it by invi ting the musician to supper, Tho hon ors of tbe table wero done by bis ami. ablo daughter, who appeared no less touched at tbe generosity of Liszt than astonished nt his taloot. That olgbt the musiciso of tho city serenaded their illustrious brother. The next day the nobles aod most dis tinguished inhabitants of Prague pre. seoled themselves ot his door. Tbey entreated him to givo concerts, . lea ving it to himself to fix soy sum ho pleased as a ronumeratioo. Then tha joweler percnived that talent, even in a pecuniary light, may be more vul uirblo than the most precious dia. moods. Liszt continued to bo to bis bouse, and, to the merchant's great joy, he soon porcoivod that bis daughter was the cause of these vis its. He began lo lovo tbo company of tha musician, and tho girl, bis onl y child, certainly did not hate it. One moroiog, the joweler, coming lo the point, with German frankness, said to Liszt : "How do you (ike ay daughter 7" "She is ao angel." ' What do yoa think of marriage ?" "I think so well of it that I have tbo greatest loeiisation to try It." "What would yoa say to A fortune of thre millions of francs f "I would willingly accept it" "Well, we understand each otber. My daughter pleases yov ; 700 please my daughter, ber fortune l ready be my son-in-lsw." "WUb all my heart." The Marriage was celebrated tho following week. Aod -this, oooording to tbe chroni cles of Prague, is a trae account of tbe marriage of tbe great and goo d pianist, Jjlsit Lancaster fPa ) meditates a street passenger railway (row the contre of the city . the adjoining village of Milleraville, distance , of some four ml! ss, .with lOTfAl. rUhsa beav Enfecfo f Mglilnlng-. , George Mills writes as follows: I was struok by lightning tindor the follow, ing cironmstancc : I ara a furmor, and bad gono to the pastsre, thrco. fourths of a mile from the house, on horseback, to drjvo home tie cows. A hoary shower had just fallen, accom panied by much lightning and loud thunder, and a li'.tlc ralo wa falling wo would say it was "sprinkling." Whilo riding thnigli the field I di". 1 corcrcil a small cluster of cockle burrs, a noxious weed that infect ma ny In r m s in lhl section of tbe coun try. The csltlo woro feeding tear mo. I dismounted and held tho horse with one hand and proceeded to pull up tho burrs with tho oiLer. While stooping to pull up tho last one, my baud g;,-pod it close to the root, tho horso standing with his bead partly ovor my stooping body, a flash of lightning struck the bone, (Dteriug his head in ud behind his left ear, and though ho wss wet with tho rain, the hair wa singed from his haad, neck and elmuldnrs, and one trout log lo tho ground. Ha, of course was instantly killed. A email poi tioo of the electric fluid struck mo on the right tcuiplo, singicg tbo lashes of tbo right eye, and burning or scalding the lure, rendering mo unconscious for .a little timo. Tho following were the sciisaliotiit and pheootuena as I ob served end reiucraliorcd them : First, I lolt myself enveloped iu a sheet of perfectly whito light, accompanied by a sceno of suffocating heat. The light could bo seoc as well thmugh the tack of the head as with the .eyes, and npper-rcd to extood sev eral feet on till sides of mo ; and then I experienced a sense of danger, and tried to escape injury from ray horse. Then followed a troubled dream, in which I was hauling a loud ef bay, in company with another person, and in spito ol'all tho effort I could make to avoid it, tho load of hay was about to fall on me. Whon in the dream I made the last desperate effort to spring from under tho liny, I found myself standing on my fest. The first thing that 1 observed was that the cattle, in fright, wero runnibg from mo, sod next, that I stood in front of tl.efnostrtUo horse. This was a phonotucna I never had heard of, probably bocause a person near enough to boo it is almost always rtndered unconscious too long to make tho observation. Judging from tho distance the cattlo had run, I vns probably unconsoious less than six seconds, Findiug that tbe horso did -cot breathe, I prccecdeJ to pull off tho saddle and bridle, and then I folt a severe pain in my head, which contin ued for several hours, followed by soroneis, which seemed to bo lo the substanco of tho brain, with an Incli nation of inflamation, but at the end of a week no effects of the lightoiog were felt. j?r Too Lute. Smiles tells us that Sir Henry Spol man did not beg n the study of science until lie was between fifty aod sixty years of ago. Franklin was fifty be foro he fully enterod upon the study of natural philosophy. Drydea and Soott were not known as authors until each was in his lorticth year. Boca cio was thirty-five when he com monood his literovy carcor, Aifieri wus forty-six whon ho bogso tbe study of Greek. Dr. Arnold learned German at an advanced ago for the purpose of xcgdiug Xelbubr io Alio original and in like manner Jamot Watt, wbco about forty, whilo work ing At hi trade as instrument maker in Glsssgo, learned French, German and Italian, to enablo him to pnrsue tbo valuablo works on mechanical philos ophy which existed io those languages.

A writer in tbo (Jent'eman Mj azine relates no anecdote of ouo of tho foundors of ChriHt's Hospital, London, which very fairly l!lutrutes tbo sort of Impulses which povim peoplo iu willing their property to publio institutions, llii name Was Hunt, nml unJcr his will Christ's Hospital now receives an iucoiue or nbout X'120,000 tt year. Ho was a t i ty merchant, a baehvlur and lived w.jIj liis tretker. This brother hail sons and daughter, v. ho were bro't up with tho oxpccUtioo of enjoying their uncle's property at his death But titer's mnuy a flip 'twiil tho cup and tha lip, aul a couple of t-barp worls at dinner 0110 day belwceu the brothers dissiputod a'U thoir expecta tions to the wind. Tho bachelor lind a i"iichnU for urw potatoes and nid. ted butter, mid one day, when the potatoes ajJ tho buitor.boat happen ed to come into suggos'.ivo contigui ty, the epicurean millionaire stuck his fork into a potatoo, and dipped iuto tho butter-boat, aod swallowed it. 'Excellent!" ' Beaitly I" answerod the brother. "Beastly do you mean to say that I'm a bcait V "Yes I do. The wan who cao dip a potato into th butter-boat iu that way, luuat be a beast." The words wcro quickly spoken. It was uot so cosy, to rocr.ll them. You may ridicule a djuu's opinions, cxposo the silliness of his crolehct", laugh ntbis prejudices, scd quis his personal appcaraoco atd he will forgivo you. But there u one limit to this personal criticism. A man'etastos at table are above criticism, and an alderman's sacred. Mr. Hunt thought so. Ho tore up his will nt once, cutoff his heirs with tho my thological shiiliug, and left all his sparo cash and estates to Christ's llospiiul. Social Honor. Every person should eultivate a nice souse of honor. In a hundred different ways this most fitting ad junct of tho true lady or gentleman is often tried. For instance, one is tho EUtfs' f family whore, perhaps, the j domestic machinery docs oot ruo smoothly. Thero is sorrow iu tho house unsuspected by tho outer world Sometimes it it a disipatcd son, whose conduct is a bkamo and grief to his parents; sjuitiuics a rclativo whose cxcentriuilics sud peculiarities are u cloud on the homo. Or, worst of all, husband and wifo may not be in ac cord, and thero may be often bittor words spoken, aud harsh recrimina tions. In any of these cases tho guest is in honor bound to bo blind aod deaf, as far as poople without are eouoerncd. If a gentle word within can do any good, it may well be said ; but to go forth aud reveal the shadow f au uuhuppy secret to any 000, even your nearest friend, is au act cf indel icacy acd meanness almost unparallel ed. Ouce io tho sacred precincts of any home, admitted to its privacy sharing its life, All that you see and hear is a sacred trust. It is as really contemptible to gossip of such things as it would be to steal the silver or borrow tho books and fo.gat to return them. Fixi.no tub Teapot. Wutcr is called "hard" wbou in passing through the earth it bscouies tinctured with mineral matters, usually sulphate and carbonate oflimo. In boiling " hard" .wa.tor, that water which U driven off in steam leaves its miooral matters behind, and they are usually deposited in a crust around tho side of tbe kettle. Ao oyster ebell it is said, and even a child's marblo, if placed iu the kettlo, will attract tho oarthly articles to itsself, nd thus prevent the incrustation upon the vessel. An Inveterate tobaaoo chewar was io tho babit of declaring about once a month lb at be would "never chew a oothsr piece," but broke bis plodgo ss oft on as he made it. On one occa- sioo shortly after' be bad "broken ofl for good' be was seon taking another chew. "Why," said bis friend, "you told me you bad given up that habit j but I ace you are at it again." "Yos," bo replied, "I bavo gone to chewing, aod left off ly log.
