Such beautiful, beautiful hands,
They’re neither white nor small.
And you, I know, would scarcely think
That they were fair at all.
I’ve looked on hands whose form and hue
A sculptor's dream might be,
Yet are these aged wrinkled hands
Most beautitui to me.
Such beautiful, beautiful hands—
Though heart were weary and sad,
Tiiese patient hands kept toiiing on
That children might be giad.
I almost weep, as looking back
To childhood's distant day,
I think how these hands rested not,
When mine were i.t their play.
Such beautiful, beautitui hands,
They’re growing feeble now ;
For time and pain have left their work
On hand, and heart, and brow.
Alas ! alas ! the neaiiug time,
And the sad, sad day to me,
When ’neaih the daisies, Out of sight,
These hands will folded be.
But oh! beyond this shadow-lamp,
Where all is bright and fair,
I know full weli these dear old hands
Will palms of victory bear.
Where crystal streams, through endless years,
Flow over golden sands,
And where the old grow young again,
I’ll clasp my mother’s hands.

Curiosities of Memory.
John Kemble used to say that he
could learn a whole number of the
Morning Post in four days, and Gen.
Christie made a similar assertion,
but it is not known bow far either
oflhetn verified ibis statement. Roll
er! Dillon could repeal in the morn-
ng six columns of a newspaper he
bad read over night. During the
repeal debates in the Douse of Com
mons thirty-seven } 7 ears ago, one ol
die members wrote out his speech,
sent it to the newspapers and re
peated it to the house in ihe even-
ng. It was found to be the same
verbatim as that which he bad writ
ten out. John Fuller, a land agent
in Norfolk, could remember every
ermon, and write it cor
rect alter going home. This was
tested by comparing his written ac
count wtlh the c ergyman’s manu
script. Scaliger could repeat a
! hundred verses or more afier having
read them a sing e time. Seneca
could repeat two thousand words on
hearing them once. Magliabecehi,
who had a prodigious memory, was
once put to a severe test. A gentle
man lent him a manuscript, winch
was read anti returned. The own-
! er, sometime ufierwar Is, pretending
! lie had lost it, lugged Magliabecehi
: to write out as much as he could ie-
member, wheieupon the latter, ap
pealing to his memory, wrote oul
the whole essay. Cyrus, if some
of the old historians are lo be credit
e l could remember the name ofevery
soldier in his large army. There
was a Corsican hoy who could te-
hearse 40,01)0 words, whether sense
or nonsense, as they were dictated,
and then repeat them in the reverse
order, without making a single mis
take. A physician ofMassachuseis,
aoout half a century ago, could re-
p<= at t lie whole of “Paridise Lost”
without misiake, although he had
not read it for 20 years. Euler, the
great mathematician, when he be
came blind, could repeat the whole
of Virgil’s “yEneid,” and could re
member the first line and the last
line on every page of the particular
edition which he had been accus
tomed to read before he became
One kind of retentive memory
may he considered as the re
sult <>f sheer hml wok, a de
termination towards one particular
achievement without reference ei
ther to cultivation or to memory on
oiher subjects. This is frequently
shown by persons in humble life in
regaid to the Bible. An old beggar
man at Sterling, known some forty
years ago as Blind Aleck, afforded an
insiance of this. He knew the whole
Bible by heart; in-omuch that if a
sentence were read to him he could
tell the book, chapter, and verse; or,
il the book, chapter and verse were
named he could give the exact
words. A gentleman to test
him repeated a verse, purposely
makingone verbal inaccuracy. Aleck
hesitaied, named the place where
ihe verse is lo be found, but at ihe
same time pointed out ihe verbal
error. The same gentleman asked
him to repeat the ninetieth verse of
the seventh chapter of the Book of
Numbers. Alec almost instantly
replied: “There is no such
that, chapter has only et
Life and Inactivity.—11 a
steam-engine is stopped suddenly,
and left unused lor a long period,
the piston rusts fast in the cylinder,
the packing corrodes the rods, and
dust thickly covers every part.—
When the human frame is inactive
and torpid for a length of lime, the
muscles relax, the nerves lose their
lone, the organs refuse to per.brm
their functions and ihe whole of that
great machine—the human frame—
is disorganized. Day in and day
out men sit poring over ledgers and
da\-hooks until they are addlehead-
ed, and the figures swim before
their eyes. When evening com« s,
and business hours are over, instead
of taking a walk, so as lo send die
blood dancing and tingling to the re
motest of their frames, they get into
some omnibus, and drowsily roll lo
their doors. A very -great portion
of the minor ailments flesh is heir
to is caused by laziness. An artic
led individual goes to a doctor:
“something is wrong inside,” but
he dosen’t know exactly where.—
Thereupon the physician looks
grave, and says, “All! dyspepsia;”
and forthwith orders ionic, aperients
and what not, when all the lazy
men wants is a two-mile tramp, or
a good old fashioned bouncing oil a
hard-trotting horse. A certain eas
tern potentate, leeling himself out of
sorts on one octasiou, sent for his
physician and demanded a cure.—
“Take this mace,” said the physi
cian, “mount a horse, and swing the
instrument backward and fir ward,
riding meanwhile at a rapid pace.—
Certain drugs concealed in the ban
die will then exude ; your excellen
cy will then absorb them and he
cured.” And he was cured, says
ihe legend; the shrewd man of
nediciue knew full well that ail the
king required was fresh air and ex
ercise. and he look this method of
prescribing them. It is belter^ to
wear out than to rust out, and shoe
leather is far less cosily than medi
cal advice. Stretching the legs re
lieves the tension on the purse
strings, and the cheapest as w r eli as
the best medicine for dullnes, head
aches, stupidity, hypochondria, and
ill temper, is fresh air and sunlight.
These are sovereign remedies ; but
because they are easily obtain'd,
are not unpleasant to the taste, and
cost nothing, lew use them.—Ex.
Milky Way.—The milky way
forms the grandest feature of the
firmament, It completely encircles
the whole fabric ot the skies, and
sends its light down upon us, accor
ding to the best observations, from
no less than IS,000,000 of suns.
These are planted at various distan
ces, too remote to be more than
feebly understood, hut their light
the medium of measurement, re
quires for its transit lo our earth pe
riods ranging from ten to a thousand
years. Such is the sum of the
truths revealed to us by the two
Herschels, who, with a zeal which
no obstacle could daunt, have ex
plored every part of the prodigious
Sir William Herschel, after ac~
complishmg his famous section, be
lieved that he had gauged the milky
way to its lowest depth, affirming
that he could follow a cluster of stars
with his telescope, constructed ex
pressly forthe investigation, as far
hack as would require 339,000 years
for the transmission of its light.—
But, presumptuous as it may seem,
we must be permitted to doubt this
assertion, as the same telescope, in
the same master hand, was not suf
ficiently powerful to resolve even
the noblae in Orion. Nor must we
forget that light, our only clew lo
those unsearchable regions, expands
and decomposes in its progress ; ami
coming from a point so remote, its
radiant waves would he disperse in
space. Thus the reflection is forced
upon us that new clusters and sys
tems, whose beaming light will nev
er reach our earth, still throng be
yond ; and that, though it is permit
ted lo man to behold the immensity,
he shall never see the bounds of the
A Japanese Bed.—A traveler
in the East gives the following amus
ing description of the sleeping ac
commodations of the Japanese; A
maltras in the form of a very thick
quilt, about seven feet long and four
w'ide w r as spread on the floor, and
over it was laid an ampde robe, very
long and heavily padded, and provi
ded with large sleeves. Having
put on this nightdress the sleeper cov
ers himself with another quilt, and
sleeps, i. e., “if he has had some
years practice,” in use of this bed.
But the most remarkable feature
about a Japanese bed is the pillow'.
This is a wooden box about four
incites nigh, eight inches long ami
two inches wide at the top. It nas
a cushion of folded papers on the
upper side lo rest the neck on, forthe
eluboiate inauner of dressing the
hair dops not permit the Japanese,
especially the women, to press
die head on the pillow. Every
mo-ning. the upper most paper
is taken off’ from the cushion,
expos ng a clean surface with
out the expense of washing a
pillowcase. I passed a g:eater part
of the night in learning how to poise
my head in this novel manner ; and
when I finally closed my eyes, it
was to dream that I was being slow
ly beheaded, and to wake at the cri
sis to find the pillow bottom sitie up,
and my neck resting on the sharp
lower edge of the box. During my

of its customs, masteting the use of
the chop-sticks and accustoming my
palate to raw fresh fish, but the at
tempt to balance my head on a two
inch pillow, l gave up in despair,
af.er trying in vain to secure the
box by tying it lo my neck and head.

always be poor. The art is not in
making money, but in keeping it;
lit tie expenses, like mice in a barn,
when they are many, make great
waste. Hair by hair, heads get bald ;
straw hy straw, the thatch goes off
the cottage; and diop by drop, the
rain cornes into the chamber. A
barrel is soon empty, if the tap leaks
but a minute. When you mean to
save begin with your mouth ; there
are many thieves down the red lane.
The ale-jug is a great waste. In all
other things keep within compass.
Never stretch your legs farther than
the blankets will reach, or you will
soon be cold. In clothes, choose
suitable and lasting stuff, and not
tawdry fineries. To be warm is the
main thing; nevermind the looks.
A fool may make oioney, but il needs
a wise man to spend il. Remember,
il is easier to build two chimnies
than to keep one going. If you give
all to back and board, there is noth
ing left for the savings bank. Fare
hard and work hard while you are
young, and you have a chance lo
test when you are old.
Henry Ward Beecher says that
the most gratifying circumstance in
his life was being kissed by Kossuth.
A cotemporaty asks .* “Isn’t this a
lilt'e hard on poor Mrs. Beecher?”
An Indiana editor says: “We
leave to-morrow for the county hog
show ana hope to take the prize.”
It is very appropriately suggested that
if Harper’s Weekly would cairicature to
some purpose, let it give us a picture of
Graot holding out the Thanksgiviog
turkey to Massachusetts with one band,
while pinning South Carolina to the
earth with bis bayonet in the other.
Next to busy bees, bootbl icks fur
