MY SCHOOL-GIRL DAYS.
BY AUNT Ltror
I REMEMBER, I remember
All my childish days at school ;
When I pored o'er simple pages
In the air of morning cool ;
When I read old Peter Parley,
Like a bonk•worm, through and through,
When I shunned good Lindley Murray,
And dull Colburn's "two and two."
I remember golden pleasures .
Brought by Wednesday afternoon,
How we ran through blossomed hollows
In the leafy month of June ;
How we caught the autumn showers
From the nut-tree's laden bough ;
How we scaled December ennw drifts :
Wherg are all those children now ?
I' remember, in our school room,
Ono low window where I sat
Eyeing, with halfpitying envy,
Some untutored..dog ot cat ;
Measuring the lengthened shadows
Thrown by elm•trees on the floor ;
Did the teacher catch my lances ?
Eyes played truant then no more.
I remember her, our teacher,
Sitting in her chair of state,
Holding for each reverent pupil
Springs of good cr evil fate.
One and all, we loved and feared her,
Though we oft her patience tried,
And her smile to us was sunshine ;
Dark the day when 'twos denied.
I remember those old school-days—
Fringed with rainbow tints they pass,
When, as now, I hold before me
Memory's prismatic glass.
Schoolmates I some of you are sleeping
Cahnly 'neath the silent mould ;
Some have grown to prudent matrons ;
1, methinks, run growing old.
A TIMMS!! LADY Bismixo.—Her attire is
first removed. An attendant takes a glove—
every day it is a new glove—of undressed silk.
With the disengaged hand she pourS over her
mistress basin after basin of warm water.—
Then by means of gentle friction of the glove
she slowly removes the salts and impurities
which are deposited on the skin. This finish
ed, the attendant covers the lady from head
to foot, by means of a mob of downy silk, with
a lather made of particular emollient soap, pe
culiar, we believe, to Turkey. Upon this
soap depends much of the pencil-like softness
and snowy whiteness of the skin for which
Eastern women always are so remarkable.—
It has the reputation of removing stain spots
and freelele#!4i...4Are n ot, ea
ItlTutiole. This part of the matter having
been carefully performed, the lady is again .
deluged in waver, heated to 110 to 120 degrees,
and poured over her person from a taus (ba
sin) of silver. Large towels—we might call
'them sheets—of the finest muslin, richly em•
broidered with lloWers and gold, are wrapped
around her ; she is led into a saloon, where,
reclining upon a heap of cushions, she sinks
into a soft dream-like languor, that might be-
cone faintness were it not for the assiduity
with which a slave fans her.
A. NOBLE Fentow.—On the morning of
December, Ist, four little boys broke through
the ice on the lake near their school house, in
Waterville, Wis. Tho villagers hastened to
the spot, but the ice was so thin that none
dared venture to their aid. At this moment,
just as the boys were sinking, a young man,
eighteen years of age, named John Adams,
sprang forward, seized a fishing spear, and
leaving most of his clothe. on the bank plung
ed into the lake and saved two of the boys.
He then made a dash, and saved the third.—
Adams was now almost exhausted, but the
mother of the fourth boy was standing near,
in horrible agony, and Adams said to her, "I
will save your buy or die."„. Tying a ro . pe a
round his waist, ho told those on shorrk pull
him if he sank, and cried out, "Stand by the
rope, lam going to him." He then plunged
in, and breaking the ice with his bands, seized
the boy wbo was sinking for the third time,
carried him ashore, and restored him to 10
THE Rev. DL BELLOWBj of Now York, re.
cently delivered an excellent address on mirth,
in the course of which he remarked:
For my part, I say it in all solemnity, I have
become sincerely suspicious of the piety of
those who do not love pleasure in any form.--
I cannot trust the man that never laughs; that
is always sedate; that has no apparent outtste.l
for natural springs of sportiveneas and gaiety
that are perennial in the human soul. I know
that nature takes her revenge on such violence.
I expect to find secret vices, malignant sins,
or horrid crimes springing up in this hot bed
of confined air and imprisoned apace; and
therefore it gives me a sincere mural gratifica
tion anywheN ancljn any community, to see
innocent pleasures and popular amusement s
resisting the religious 'bigotry that frowns so
unwisely upon them. Anything is better than
dark, dead, unhappy social life; a pray to en
nui and morbid excitement, which milks from
unmitigated pe i ritinism, whose second crop 'is
usually unbridled license and inamous folly.
