To this pretty, womanly city there are
wo sides, a writer tells us; it is the
most deceitful city in the world a city
of wide and wonderful contrasts. Venice
is full of beauty, but full of ugliness
also. It ia full of gayety, but overfull
of want and wretchedness. The great
attraction, however, to one who dwells
long in Venice is the gentleness and the
never-failing politeness of its people of
all classes and all conditions. Beautiful,
beautiful Venice ! A dead and decaying

One of the strangest and most horrible
- sensationsl incidents took place the

who were playing in the environs
discovered floating in the air and partly
-entangled amid the branches of a tree a
"white parcel -upborne by some twenty or
' thirty litSe Ted toy-balloons which were
-attached to it. The attention of the
polioebexDg called to this singular ob
ject, was brought down and the pack
age opened, which proved to contain the
orpae of a new-born infant.
Iirvee ligation into the matter brought
to light the following facts : The child
was ihat .of a poor toy-maker and his
wife; just after the confinement of the
: latter 4he ihusband had died suddenly,
and sH the household goods and chattels
bad een seized for rent. The unhappy
woman -was. driven mad by this aocumu

in -which -she declared .her intention to
commit suicide, and said that she " had

kissing is altogether unknown in China.
' The Chinese, indeed, have no word or

LIO HT FANTASTIC" IN FI.JI.
iji correspondent of a London pa
At eight a company of 200Fijins per
rmed one-, of their stranire dances bv
Jorch-light. These people, -with their
faces blackened in a great variety of hide
ous patterns, and their bodies decked
with leaves, branches and tapa in a very
grotesque manner; .formed themselves
into a compact company, with an orchest
ral party and master of ceremonies in the
center. . The music began with a sharp
clapping of hands, accompanying a meas
ured, monotonous song in perfect time.
Then those composing the outer edge of
the company formed themselves' into a
wide circle round the orchestra, and went
through a series of most extraordinary
an ties, shouting and gesticulating, and
giving the circle a constantly revolving
motion. But however eccentric the mo
tions were, they were all performed in
exact time by every member of the party,
and the cadence of the hand-clapping
was never lost. Sometimes arms were
advanced to their fullest extension, and
sometimes they were swung wildly
around. Then the men would stop with
an extravagantly ludicrous wriggling
motion, which affected all their members.
You had no sooner determined that they
were going to tie themselves in so many
knots than you changed your opinion and
felt sure they were about to stand on their
heads ; yet neither feat was actually per
formed. The light from the coooanut
leaf torches fell upon the figures with a
strangely weird effect. "When the dance
neared its end the outer circle closed up
on the central body ; the shouting and
gesticulating became more wild and inar
ticulate, until with one last effort there
was a prodigious yell of Wa-oo !' at the
very top of the voice, and exhausted
nature demanded rest."
JL H EX 8 A TIOJfA I, KOHBE1CY
A few mornings-since, says an Jnglish
paper, a sensational robbery was com
mitted,, of that bold but patient and
thoughtful type which we are beginning
to recognize as the American style. A
M. Delapierre, money changer on the
Boulevard de la Madeleine, joins to this
business a trade inexpensive nick-nacks.
Nearly every day for the last six months
an American has made small purchases
in the shop. With the ease and volu
bility of his pleasant race, this gentleman
had fallen into a habit of exchanging
long gossips with M. Delapierre, who
looked on him as one of his best cus
tomers.. , The other morning the Amer
ican arrived as usual with a friend. M.
Delapierre had just taken out a bag of
money and valuables, whinh he placed in
the window while taUdncr. There is. of
course, a money changer s grating be
tween it and the shop. Presently entered
a third person, who bought a silver tea
pot, which the assistant packed up and
carried to the address given. When he
had gone the American-produced a claw,
such as gas globes are set upon, and said
carelessly to the moneychanger, "I wish
yon would see if you have a glass to fit
this claw." M. Delapierre went with
him into the back shop and sought a
globe to match, leaving the friend alone.
It appears that he immediately opened
the grating, seized the' little bag of
valuables, and called out, " Haven't you
found a glass yet ?" The American came
back, chose some small articles to be
sent home, and then went off quietly
wito ins companion. Not for half an
hour afterward did M. Delapierre dis
cover his loss, which amounts to 12,000,
half of it in bank notes and gold, the
rest in checks and negotiable paper. A
theft so patiently. concocted,' so auda
ciously carried ont, is worthy of notice,
lake our own bank forgers, these men
had plainly some capital, beside shrewd
brain and cold resolution. - They could
afford to wait six months and to buy
silver tea-pots and trifles of that sort.' '

One of r the torments, says, a .writer on
Australia, to which the traveler is sub
jected in the North Australia scrubs is a
stinging tree (Utica gigas,) which is very
abundant, and ranges in size from a large
shrub of thirty feet in height to a small
plant measuring only a few inches. Its
leaf is. large and , peculiar, from being
covered with a short, silvery hair, which,

' CoL Forney writes from Borne :
Everybody has read about the Ap-
pian Way. It was. the great line of com
munication between Borne and Southern
Italy. Before you reach the old road
you see the colossal ruins of the baths of
CaracaUa, which occupy the space of
nearly a mile, and accommodated 1,600
bathers at a time ; but this is surpassed
by the size of the bath of Diocletian,
which accommodated 3,200 bathers at
time. The baths were the favorite re
sorts of the poets and philosophers, and
were adorned with porticos and vesti
bules for the idle and libraries for the
learned ; they were also decorated with
the finest objects of art in painting andc
sculpture, and placed in the midst of
fountains and shaded walks. Along the
Appian Way were built the tombs con
taining the urns with the ashes of hun
dreds and thousands- of Romans who
lived and died thousands of years ago.
These tombs are temples above ground,
built of solid stone walls, inside of which
were placed the urns, while outside were
carved the beautiful decorations and in
scriptions, oftentimes including exquisite
statuary to designate the dead. Many
of their busts were found centuries after
inside, and as you now ride along this still
solid road you see the remains of costly
sepulchers, with the fragments of their
marble memorials and highly wrought
statues.. You would think that this road
of the tombs would be rather a mourn
ful affair, but the Romans had strange
notions of death. , Their funerals were
jolly feasts, and they liked to have their
villas and their merry meetings near the
houses of their : departed relations and
ancestors. . For miles the relics of the
graves extend along the Appian Way.
One of the most curious of these sepul
chers is the tomb of Cseoelia, Metella,
erected sixty-seven years before Christ,
to the memory of Casoeila, the Crete, and
wife of Crassus. It is a circular tower of
massive construction and enormous
strength, and has seen many changes. It
was a fortress or feudal stronghold in the
Middle Ages, and sustained great injury
in the sixteenth century when Borne was
besieged. To-day it stands in solid and
solitary grandeur, as if grimly defying
the ravages of another 1,900 years.

It is not in pearl powder, nor in golden
hair-dye, nor in jewelry. It cannot be
got in a bottle or a box. It is pleasant
to be handsome; but all beauty is not in
prettiness. There is a higher beauty
that makes us love people tenderly. Eyes,
nose, hair, or skin never did that yet ;
though it is pleasing to see fine features.
What you are will make your face ever
for you in the end, whether nature has
made it plain or pretty. Good people
are never ill-looking. Whatever their
faces may , be, an amiable expression
atones for alL If they can be cheerful
also no one will love them the less be
cause their features are not regular, or
because they are too fat, or too thin, too
pale, or too dark. Cultivation of the
mind adds another charm ' to their faces,
and, on the whole, if any girl is desirous
of being liked by the many and loved by
the one, it is more in her power than she
may believe to accomplish that object.
Cosmetics will not accomplish it, how
ever. Neither will fine dress, though a
woman that does not dress becomingly
wrongs herself. Forced smiles and affec
ted amiability will be of no avail ; but if
she can manage to feel kindly to every
body, not to be jealous, not to be cross,
to be happy if possible, and to encourage
contentment; then something will come
into her face that will outlast youth's
roses, and gain her not. only a husband'
but a life-long lover.

forty-one wrecks of ; Japanese - vessels
have been borne upon the coasts of the
Sandwich Islands and of America, twenty-

twelve of them bearing' human -lives.
These " wrecks were , borne east by the

One ordered his body to be sewn up

The jest is deficient, perhaps in point
and polish, but in other respects it is
perfect. People have been buried in
various positions, with their heads turned
to every quarter of the compass, and a
world of words have been written in de
fense of each position. The advocates
of cremation say that one, and not the
least, of its advantages consists in its
rendering all idle dispute about position
unnecessary. Many have been buried
standing, sitting and lying lying supine
or prone as Diogenes wished to lie in
this world turned upside down, that at
the time of the general resurrection and
restoration he might be found, as flat
on his back as a flounder or old BUI
Bowling. Seme have desired to be
buried "without coffins, , and it seems
probable; from the absence of the name
of this contrivance in the burial service,
that at the time of the compilation of
formula it was not in common use. The
officiating priest, it will be remembered,
speaks invariably of the corpse or body.
Others buried in coffins or vaults have
desired that the lids should not be sol
dered down, and that the door of the
vault should have the key inside, as if
they dreaded the absence, after their
long interlude of sleep, of some angel
to roll away the stone from the mouth of
their sepulcher. Comhill Magazine for

It is a noteworthy fact, that the En

and mistakes provided the ear be cor
rectly trained are impossible. As the
countries speaking, these languages must
be deprived of the " spelling school,
we may congratulate ourselves on having
one amusement that is unique. Our
language, as to its written forms, must
be classified with such primitive tongues
as the ancient Asyrianj whose writing has
