All that night Minnie tossed to and fro,
trying to stifle her hectic cough in the scant
pillow, lest Miss Angeline s pampered slum
bers should be disturbed, and wondering if
til the world was as joyless and dreary as
the brier glimpse she had already had of it.
W hen she rose in the morning, pale and
inrested, with dark circles round her eyes
and a dizzy feeling in her brain, the snow
was piled hicli against the attic window
panes, aud the wind was thrieking in shrill
usts down in the street.
Minnie! Minnie! echoed Mrs. Parker s
sharp discordant voice up ths stairway, "get

secretly gnashing her teeth at the idea of
boutid girls having mortal frailty and weak
ness. i'ruly, it was a great presumption.
"Vrhat a pity that iVinne should take it
into her ridiculous head to be sick at such a
time as this," groaned Mrs. Parker as she
took out her silver and cut glass for the
decoration of a gala dinner table. "And

"Isn't Minne any better to-day ?" asked
Angeline, j awning.
"No, I suppose not ; any way, she won't

as well as I am, if she only chose to say so."
"Your father was saving something- about

Put on your blue silk, Angeline, with

to your fair head and delicate complexion.
Those old bachelors are uraccountable crea
tures, and there is no saying but that he
will put the whole of his business into your
father's hands if you succeed in making a
favorable impression."
. Accordingly, Mrs. and Miss Parker were
attired in their best that afternoon, as the
door opened and the two gentlemen came
in Mr. Parker tall and thin, with green
spectacles and a cadaverous countenance,
and Mr. Elliott a portlyr brown-faced man,
with fiery black eyes'und a mobile mouth,
but partially concealed by a heavy gray
moustache. '
"Delighted to see you, I am sure, Mr.
Elliott, said Mrs. Parker, sweetly, while
Angeline courtesied nearly to the floor.;
"Pray take the easy chair."
"es, yes, I I dare say," spattered the
East Indiaman, beginning a nervous trot up
and down the room, "but I don't want to
sit down. Parker don't keep me in sus
pense any longer."
Mrs. Parker looked at her husband in
surprise. Mr. Parker was . polishing his
spectacles. .

meekly, and Mrs. Parker had no choice but

"You have murdered my niece !" he said
sternly, when the various reports ot Mm

Ihus ended the brief, sad life of Mmnte,

not too many such lives in our midst I
Sligiitlt Mistakes. The following
story is told in relation to the popular per
nicious vice ot fortune telling : Not
many evei ings since, it is recorded that a
sinner who had escaped hanging for lo these
many year?, was in company with several
ladies. The subject of fortune telling was
introduced. Several of the "angels" plead
guilty to the soft impeachment of having
written to Madame This and Madame That
to furnish leaves for their future history.
Instances of some remarkable developments
in a certain case hereabouts were mentioned.
Old R was asked for his opinion. He re-
flied, 'So far as I am personally concerned,
know more about myself than I wish to.
I don't think any good tomes of these things.
I had a friend who dressed in lady's apnarel
and called upon a celebrated prophetess.
He did net believe ohe would discover the
disguise, but he heard what made him ex
ceedingly unhappy.' Here the old repro
bate ceased. A lady who was much inter
ested asked:
'What did she tell him?'
'She told him be was to marry soon, and
become the mother often children.' "
Never Kissed a White Girl. Some
time ago a planter, a short distance from
Memphis gave a party to the young folks in
the neighborhood. It was a gay -one, and
in the course of the evening the boys and
girls played forfeits. While this was going
on, it chanced that a son or the planter, a
nice, modest fellow, had to claim a forfeit of
some of the girls, but ' was overcome with
diffidence. "Go ahead, John," said the
Elanter, "and kiss some of the girls." John
itched from one foot to the other, blushed,
and finally blurted out, " I never kissed
a white girl, father." The laughter that
ensued may be imagined.
A Paris paper has this clever satire on
the present high prices: "A devout lady
who attends the .church of St. Roche, has
been in the habit of giving a half franc
every Saturday to an old man who sits at
the door with a box to receive alms. The
other day when sbe proffered the usual sum
to him, he said, 'I beg your pardon, Mad
ame, during the Exhibition it is a franc "

to youth.
lhe teacher ought always to study the in
terest of his pupils, and change the exerci
ses in such a manner that thev will take
pleasure in their studies, and look upon
them as a pleasing recreation.
1 am ot the opinion that two-thirds of
the trouble teachers have in governing their
schools, originiate from the above mention
ed evils.
In school rooms which are not properly
ventilated, the pupils become dull and lan
guid., and hence their uneasiness and ina
bility to remain ouiet ; they become cross
and illnatured. And the same is true in re-
nrd to the teacher. The pupils become
inattentive and restless ; the teacher threat
ens, scolds, and flogs, all for want of proper
attention paid to the physical necessities or
the pupils. ; Most teachers seem to think
they have nothing to do with the pupils in
this respect, and allow them to form habits
of sitting and standing, just as it happens.'
lhe results of such carelessness, on the
part ,ot the teacher, are truly, lamentable.
It is easier to maintain an erect position than
any other, while it is more enndacire to
tieaiMK It should be the chief care of the
teacher to see that every pupil maintains
proper position ; that is, they should stand
with head erect, chest brought forward, and
shoulders thrown back.
The teacher, who will attend to the posi
tion or his pupils, will nnd that they spea
plainer and more distinctly, while in this
position, than in any other, for the more air
inhaled and retained in the lungs, the fuller
and more sonorous will be the voice : conse
quently the necessity of attending to the
expansion or the chest.
Great care should be taken that the pu
pits pronounce each word distinctly, giving
each syllable its full sound.
lhere is one thing more in which the
teacher should not forget to instruct his ou
pus Morality. It is the base on which the
principle of the man, in after life, is found
ed. He should teach them obedience to
God, kindness towards their companions
and love For their country. "W. A. 8.
