O lden T imes .—Who among our
extravagant young ladies in these
boastful times ever gave her lover, as
Cleopatra did, a pearl dissolved in vin
egar (or undissolved) worth $40,000 ?
Then there was a Paulina, one of the
ton in Rome, who used towear jewels
when she returned her visits, worth
$309,000. Cicero, who was compar
atively a poor man in those times,
gave $1,500,000 for his establishment
on the Palatine ; while Messala gave
$2,009,000 for the house of Antony.
Seneca, who was just a plain philoso
pher, was worth $120,900,000. Tibe
rius left a property of nearly $120,-
909,090. Cte-;ar and Marc Antony
l»oth owned wonder ft/! fortunes. Why
they talk about a man’s failing in New
York for $1,009,000 as if it were a big
thing. Ctesar, before he entered any
offi-e, when he was a young gentleman
in private life, owed $1,000,000, and he
purchased the friensdhip of Queesor
Marc Antony owed
$1,500,000 on the Ides of March and
paid before the Kalends of March.
This was nothing. He squandered
$720,000,900 of public money. And
these fellows lived well. Esopus, who
was a play actor, paid $400,000 for a
single dish. Caligula spent $400,000
for a supper. Their wines were often
kept for two ages, and some of them
were sold for $20 an ounce. Dishes
were made of gold and silver, set
with precious stones. The beds of
Heliogabulua were of solid silver; his
tables and plates were of pure gold, and
his mattresses, covered with carpets of
cloth of gold, were stuffed with down
from tinder the wing of a partridge.
It took $89,000 a vear to keep up the
dignities of a R»man Senator, and
some of them spent $5,000,000. And
yet they talk of our extravagance.
F attening S heep .—Sheep fatten
much more readilj’ during warm
weather; hence at less expense than
during the fall and winter. Young
and thrifty animals fatten rapidly on
good pastures, hut old sheep should
have a moderate quantity of grain fed
to them regularly ns a supplement to
the pasturage. One bushel of grain
fed to them will fatten them as rapid
ly as four, when fed In the winter. In
fattening any kind of animals, one
fact should never be lost sight of, and
that is, that quietude and warmth and
well ventilated enclosures, are Indis
pensable. It is a great waste of food
to attempt the fattening of animals
without first attending to these impor
tant requirements. Animals will fat

T he S un ’ s B lessings .—Sleepless
people—ind there are many in Amer
ica—should court the sun. The very
worst soporific is laudanum, and the
very best, sunshine. Therefore it Is
very plain that poor sleepers should
pass as may hours in the sunshine, and
as few as possible in the shade. Many
women are martyrs, and yet do not
know it. They shut the sunshine out
of their houses and hearts, they wear
veils, they carry parasols, and they do
all possible to keep off the subtlest and
and yet most potent influence which is
to give them strength and beauty and
cheerfulness. Is it not time to change
all this, and get color and roses in our
pale cheeks, strength in our weak
hacks, and courage in our timid souls ?
The women of America are pale and
delicate ; they may be blooming and
strong, and the sunlight will lie a po

Will they not try it a year or two and

L arge B unches of G rapes . —A
bunch of Black Hamburg grapes was
lately shown at the Great Diternational
Horticultural Exhibition, at Belfast,
which weighed 20 pounds 12 ounces.
This was furnished by Mr. Hunter, of
Lamhton Castle, and exceeds the
weight of Speechly’s duster of Syrian
by about a pound. Setting aside the
fact that the latter variety is a much
coarser grape, bearing large clusters
under the most ordinary cultivation,
the analogy lie tween the two grapes
in this case is similar to that existing
between a Queen Pine and Provi

yet grown in Britain, and, like the cel

grown at Gunnershury by Mills, will
long lie rememlien’d as a triumph in
