It has been well said : Good home manners are the foun dation anil the superstructure of good manners every wht re else.- The idea that it is of little moment how we btdiavc at home, provided we ure courteous and polite in com pany, is a radically wrong one.- Persons often allow themselves to be ill-bred at home, thinking that they can put on good manners when they choose, and appear as well abroad as others ; but unconsciously they are continually betraying them selves. Few things are so subserv ient to habit as those ever occurring little proprieties, graces, and amen ities ot social life which go to make up the well-bred men or women. The expression, tone, carriage, man ner, and language of years cannot he changed in a day for some spe cial occasion. The requisites of good manners are so multitudinous, it is impossi ble to give them all; and each, like the snow Hake which form the ava lanche, though important, is so mi nute in itself that it is difficult to se lect any as most essential. Good manners at home and elsewhere are bultheoutward manifestation®f love and that spirit "which suflereihlong and is kind ; which envieth not ; vaunted) not itself; is not puffed up; doth not behave itself unseemly ; seeketh not its own ; is not easily provoked; thioketh no evil; rejoic cth not in iniquity, beared) all things ; bclieveth all things.” The well-bred man and woman express by their manner that they regard the.judgment, feelings, tastes, wishes, convenience and pleasure of others as highly as their own.— They strive to avoid all habits which offend the tastes, all expres sions which shock the sensibilities or wound the feelings of (hose about them, and all needless violation of the customs and conventionalities of society. The following particulars will fall under and illustrate gener al principles : 1. Avoid all expressions which lend lo irritate, embarrass, mortify, or pain any member of the family. 2. Never allude to any fault or failing, unless with the purpose to benefit, and then in private. 3. Avoid sarcasm, hitter words, “sore” subjects, and reference to any personal deformity. 4. Do not ridicule, or hold the opinion of others in contempt. 5. Give attention when address ed, arid do not interrupt or speak when another is talking. 6. Never contradict. 7. Never scold. 8. Keep your temper. 9. Never speak in loud or querul oustoney, nor order in arbitrary or Arrogant manner, child or servant. 10. Use no slang phrases, nor rude, disrespectful, profane or inac curate language. 11. Never omit the "please” and “thank you,” and "good morning,” nor fail lo gratefully acknowledge by some word or look every act of kindness and attention. These lit tle words oil the harsh machinery of iife wonderfully. 12. Do not even enter your near est relation’s private room without knocking. 13. Never slam the door, sit in he windows, hum, whistle or sing in the balls or passage ; nor scream to persons out of windows or up stairways. 14. Teach children to offei prece lence to each other and their supe riors, to avoid awkward positions inet movements, and not to indulge in disagreeable or filthy personal habits, such as yawning, scratching he head, picking the nose, hawking, spilling on the floor, cleaning the nails in company, etc. 15. Hold the person and personal possessions of another sacred. He who observes this rule will not tick le, nor pinch, nor punch, nor poke nis friend or btother,will not, unless he has special permission, open his letter, rummage his drawers, mark nis books, finger bis clothes, nor misuse his private property. Shout Sleispbus.— Lord Broug ham, and many other great states men and lawyers, contented them selves with a marvelously smalt quantity of sleep. ‘Fredtick the Great slept only five hours out of twenty-four ; John Hunter, five hours ; General Elliot, the hero ol Gibraltar, four hours ; the Duke of Wellington in some of his cam paigns less than four hours ; Wes ley, six hours. The brevity of their sleep did not prevent their eti ioyment of good health, nor their living to a good old age. The Appetite and Food. BY DR. J. HANAFORD. It is the office of the appctiic to indicate what are the real wants ol the body under its various circum stances and conditions. Labor, physical and mental, or effort of any kind, is constantly “tearing down” the body, wasting and disarranging this mysterious structure of liio hu man body, and this waste proceeds very rapidly during violent and long-continued eflbris. lienee, it is reasonable to suppose that this waste must he supplied, or the bo dy built up as rapidly as it is wast ed by exercise. This, of course, is effected by our food, being ciianged to blood and then to every pari of the body. The necessity for this food, or a fresh supply of new materials to re pair the necessary wastes from la bor is indicated by the appetite, usually corresponding with tie amount and kind of labor perform ed. Our experience and observa tion teach us that unusual effbit lor a single day, even, correspondingly increases the appetite, imlical ng the necessity lor an excess of food, or for more than the usual supply. And it is worthy of remark that the amount thus indicated, under ordi nary circumstanees, can he safely received and disposed of by the stomach, the supply of gastric juice beipg sufficient to change such an amount ol (bod for tfie use and strengthening of the system. It is as certain, therefore, lhat a natural or normal appetite is the true guide, the real indiealor of the wants of the body—a kind of sentinel, giving thealaim when any danger of ex haustion exists—as that thirst indi cates the necessities for drinks, or fatigue, that rest is needed. It is also true that the stomach and the org ms of digestion, as or gans of the body, need and deserve rest as certainly as the body does as a whole. If the body as a combina tion of organs, demand for its heal thy action, exercise and succeeding rest, or a period lor recuperation, it is reasonable to infer that the stom ach is under the same law. And while it is true that a full meal of most articles of food ordinarily used demands some three or four hours for digestion —some a longer time, as pork, pastry, etc., —it follows lhat food of all kinds, including fruits, are needless, not to say inadmissi ble, "between meals,” under ordi nary circumstances. One meal is all that can be reasonably disposed of in the six hours between our meals, allowing a sufficient lime for rest. A natural appetite, aside from bad habits, will not demand more food while any part of the stomach’s labor still remains unper formed, not until a suitable amount of rest has been secured. „ 'lf these principles are correct, the idea must be fallacious that one must lake food simply for tbe pur pose of "keeping up the slrengli) of the body,” with no reference to the real wants of the system as indica ted by the appetite, which is gener ally more reliable in its indications during sickness than in health as strange as it may seetn. To take food when not really demanded for recuperation, when not indicated by a natural appetite, is worse than useless, as w r e might learn from the customs of brute3, guided as they are by unerring instincts. They seem true to their nalute while reso lutely refusing all food during any serious disturbance of the stomach, teaching us an important lesson. Not only is the appetite destroyed during the attacks of disease and a nausea established, but die taste, jn many instances, is also destroyed, as if in mercy, to guard the victim against the danger of taking food. And although our appetites may become so far vitiated as to be un- reliable sentinels, in consequence of bad habits, it is certain that food should not be taken, at least in ordi nary conditions, when the absence of an appetite indicates that it is not needed. It might seem that com mon sense, aided by the instincts of the brutes, might tench us the folly of forcing the appetite, aside from the fact that the gastric juice—so necessary for healthful digestion—is not found in the stomach during cer tain forms of disease, attended by a loss of the appetite. It food, theie fore, is taken into the stomach at such a time, its thorough digestion is utterly impossible, while it should lie remembered that it can give no strength, do uo good, only by this change called digestion. It only remains as an irritant, if not fortu nately thrown off* by vomiting, until it ferments and then decays, like such food in any warm place. It is generally safe, therefore, never to lake food during the absence of the appetite, or till it can be restored by suitable means. Tho observance of this rule would not only save many attacks of disease* but prevent their No. 28. j long continuance, with a dreaded i relapse. »—* Ths Slides of Dress. Lnjiri’nis. The first instict about ; anew fashion is the true one. Don’t ! '■'’a't lid your eye lias lost its accu ! racy and judgment its edge. Sub ject the thing at once to the general rule, and bow to the decision. tid. \\ hat suits one person does not suit another. Know thyself. 31. Dress should supplement good points and correct bad ones.— I hick and thin, long and short, are i not all to be subjected to one Fro j crustean style. 4th. Colors should be harmonious, i should he massed—should be be coming. Id est, many little points or blotches ot color sprinkled over a costume produce a disagreeable pied and speckled eflect, as ot a monstrous robin’s egg, or a plum pudding. One tint should prevail, relieved by a contrasting tint. No amount of fashionable prestige can make an unbecoming color becom ing. “Nile green” will turn some i people into oranges, though twenty empresses ordain its adoption. slli. Lines should he continuous, graceful, and feminine. It is better to look like a woman (it you are one) than anything else—even a fashion plate ! bih. Ornament is subordinate. Nature, .vith all profusion, never for gets this fundamental law. 7th. Above all things, be neat. Dainty precision and freshness is as essential to a woman as a llower. Sth. Individuality is the rarest and the cheapest thing in the world. Dth, and lastly, “Stylish” is of all the words in tlie English language the most deadly. It has slain its thousands.— Scribner's Magazine. Love in the Household.— There is one place where love is more nearly supreme than any where else, and that is where suc cess has been achieved more near ly than anywhere else. I refer to the household. There the foun tain of love is never sealed. There love is more nearly on the pattern of love in Heaven than anywhere else. Thai is the bright spot of human history. While nations have gone on, voluminous, dark, with desola tion on every hand, gioaning and travailing in pain till now ; while there have been outward conflicts innumerable; while the world has been full of confusion and crying and misery, there have been in all latuls, houses with families secluded in them. And that which the Stale lacked, and business Jacked, and all men outside, the household have pos sessed. Equity, justice and forgive ness have flourished in the house hold .— Beecher. Animal Food. —Many of the an cients never ate animal food. Plu tarch, a learned Grecian, abstained from it altogether. He lived to be nearly eighty years old and was a hard worker. He is said to have written three hundred philosophical works. One hundred and twenty five of them are extant. This cele brated mail once wrote: “You ask me for what reason Pythagoras ab stained from eating the flesh of brutes ; for my part I am astonished to think what appetite first induced man to taste of a dead carcass; or what motive could suggest the no tion of nourishing himself with the flesh ol dead animals.” People could live much cheaper if they were to adopt Plutarch’s views. Work During Sleep.—Those cases in which the brain is hard at woik during sleep, instead of being totally oblivious of everj thing, may be called dreaming or'somnambu lism, according to the mode in which the activity displays itself. Many of them are full of interest. Some men fmve done really hard work during sleep. Condorcel finished a train of calculations in his sleep which had much puzzled him during the day. In 1786, a collegian no ticed the peculiarities of a fellow student who was rather stuoid than otherwise during his waking hours, but wfio got through some excellent work in geometry and algebra <fu< ring sleep. Coleridge composed Kubla Kahn while asleep. A man too busy to lake care of his health is like a mechanic too bu sy to take care of his tools. A certain Edinburgh professor once pronounced upon a student his severe opinion: “Dunqe you are, and dunce you will ever remain.” That student was Sir Walter Seott. One can no more judge of the true value of a man by the impression he makes on the public, than we can tell whether the seal was gold dt brass by which the stamp Was made.
