He was, moreover, an avoweoddity; one of the privileged °hiss, who, by virtue of this reputation , ca n do wits' others dare notiwithout excitingsuprise al or giving offense; whose ,eccentricities are met_with it shrug oid the shoulder and - the, t remark; ' What' else could you expect'of an oddity like me?' He an unpopular than, receiving scant sympathy; yet capable, neverthe• less, of kind and generous acts, perform: ed . on the condition that they :Were to be kept strictly secret end that he was never to: be thanked for them. Woe betide the recipient of favor to whom it was brought home that he had men tioned the same to'any one, or extolled the.kindneas of his henefitetor I The unlucky wight once detected in thus giving vent to his gratitude had taken the surest method of Cutting him self off from further help. ,He never got another chance. CdRES W. DISUSES Of THE STONICH, BLOOD. `'Our old- bachelor enjoying, as we have said, the privileges of eccentricity, it excited no surprise when on one oc casion, after an absence from home, Iv wrote to inform his servants-Ain - old couple Who bad lived with Win for years—that be would be accompanied by a widow lady, who was likely to mike a long stay in his house, and for whom: apartments were to be got ready. 'And a pretty upset she'll make I' ex claimed the dismayed old housekeeper,. `a fussy, middle-aged party, no doubt; ordering and . interfering and wanting to have everything her own way Which she won't get, John, as long as we can prevent her. She'll be a clever madam if she gets her . foot inside of my store room while there's locks and bolts to keep her out, 1 . 6 n tell her.' 'Don't you m ale so sure,' said Jahn. The old man could not resist now and then, teasing his helpmate as a little set off against sundry naggirgs on the part of that good old lady. 'Maybe it's ,a mistress of Gel house and of yourself that's coming o it. 'Then widders are great at Wheed ing It's time, if the master is ever to marry, that—' ~ %hi - stop your croaking now cried Mrs. John: This dire suggestion was too 9verpowering for her feelings. , The appointed day arrived, and When the cab drove to the door, the two old domestics with very sonAice . s and their backs very much up; went to re ceive their master and ;his unwelcome guest. Their first glimpse of thn latter showed. them that tbnY might.' have spareff their fears and hostile intentions. Out from the cab, before their aston ished eyes, sprang a - girlish figure, whose bright, happy face contrasted, cariosly with her mourning 'garments. 'Mind the step, uncle I' ('Oh, his niece, she is I') she cried, tripping np to the hall door. 'Don't trouble, please,' with a smile to the old house ket'per; , 'that base is too heavy _ for you to take; I'll carry it.' " . N. B. Brrsaux D. C. WiNatitr ‘seat( Bmrrn And when the stranger came down to breakfast next morning with a morsel of a cap perched on the top ;of her gol den braidi of hair ('not my' idea of a widow's cap,' said the dame to her hus band; 'and would you believe it, John, ;pinging away like a bird while, she was Idiessing 1") she looked absurdly young; more like a girl in her teens than an experienced, 'settled' matron. The advent of his pretty niece made some change in the habiti of the old gerrleman.

The Duck Hunter's Story: 'Speaking of duck shooting on St. Clair Flats,' sighed an old citizen, as he took a seat in a gun store yesterday; 'I don't think there are as. many birds up there as there were ten or. fifteen years ago. Why, sir, the channels used to be justiblack with 'em, and they were so tame that you could knock 'em on the head.' Everybody sighed to think those good old days and ducks could never return, and the veteran hunter con tinued: remember I was out one thy in April. I got in among the bipeds, and how many do you suppose I counted r `Three hundred,' ventured one of the audience after a long interval. • 'Three hUndred ?

It is'one of the ingenious theories'of science that all flowers were originally yellow.. This foreaula leaves us in a world •of conjecture as to boW.Moses made his floral selectionO, when gather ing the various tribes of plants for per petuation in the ark. The resolution of the problem involves no important principle,: so we may pass to a more generic phase of this interesting, theory. All'colors in their primary condition, science tells - us, were almost uni-hued. Yellow seems to have been the base. Bright hues came froM, the need of the development of the species. All flowers that expand into variegated and bright colors do so by the law of their being. That law invests them with the shades that attract the peculiar insects upon which the color of the flower is fed. This is the.point that suggests ,curious reflections and analogies. The tinebien firm person is prone to suppose that the insect feeds on the flower; but it seems this is a fallacy. The nutrition is inter dependent: The delicate red of the rose is engen dered by the larvae left. in its petals, •while the industrious. bee is filling his honey reservoir. Floviers, of course, are very interesting. A biiiich of them on a lady's hair or bosom is a sight of real-beanty. But why should science devote ao much care to Mere inanimate loveliness, when there so many more interesting' questionii that that the world would like resolved? If color is fed as the Scientists tell us, 'what is the origin of the ruby on the lips? Of course, the theory of the cynical, that purely human alembics proddc'elibe delicate-carmine that poets write about with' inch rapture, cannot be for a Mo ment considered. How can the color of the lips be fed? There is no insect known to man that impregnates the portals of pretty, months. The idea of certain foods bringing about this , phe nonenon must also be rejected, fOr do we not see daily in the same family lips ted from the very Bayne aliments as di verse in - color as the noses on our faces, or the shades of our There is but one rational theory . to accept in , this interesting dilemma. The lip is fed by the kiss! 4 What more natural? Any observent person may teat this by making the effect produced by the encounter of these organs. Sometimes, it will be seen, the color of the lips is not only enhanced, but the whole face is fed npon this exquisite nourishment Indeed, close observers will bear witness that the roseate tinge extends downward to the neck—prov ing incontestably that the kiss is the scientifiC explanation of - the crimson so much admired, on the lips of 'beauty. It will not,'howr..ver, be safe - to assume from this interesting evidence, of the scientific office of the kiss that tlie color wave extends to the hair , and that fre quent, liming leaves the Titian tinge ladies admire so much,—on their neigh bors! It is- a curious circumstance, too, corroborating this, theory that, until lips are touched by monstacbes, they never bloom into such rose-like loveli ness as we observe in marriageable girls or reigning belles. Girls who have numerous brothemand cousins, it will be 'observed generally have the best colored lips. These hints given, any discerning person can take up the- subject and find useful diversion in the speculation. Young men will naturally take up the study , with the. .: greatest enthusiasm. Beginning with their sisters, the invest igations may be carried on among other fellow's•sisteuruntil sufficient data tiave been accumulated to take ' the matter from the narrow field of speculation in to the ground of absolote fact. 'Some philosophers hold that the deep bine of the eye and the empyrean comes from the condensation of opaque. molecules. It will undoubtedly be found tharthis, too, is an error; that the blue of the eye has a subtle relation to the impression of the lips.
