, A SPLENDID FACULTY.
One of tha rarest, and therefore, moat
conspicuous, faculties, in tha conduct
of human affairs, ia the art of minding
one's own businese- Until tha talent is
actually acquired, and systematically
applied, it ia hard to realize tha com
pensating value of it, a a personal as
set. Soma one should endow a Chair
of Taciturnity in one of the great uni
versities and so begin the initiation of
- tha American people into a habit they
hara kng needed. This is a peculiar
stand for- a newspaper to take, of
course, when it is the cardinal aim of
tha presa to "butt in" on everyone'
business with the expectation of get
ting something to write about; but, all
the same, tha virtue of wise reserva
tion, and the less frequent utterance of
irresponsible and hurtful statement,
would injure no one, and raise the tone
of the newspaper itrflf, for then what
was said, and written, would have th
sanction of tacit truth. Pil'nt men are
not always truthful men, but they lie
the least, and are respected for the
quality. The rule of the day is am
biguity, and 'aside from its inherent
falsity, is responsible for tha endless
tissue of lies that encompasses human
society. To niiml one's own business
does not necessarily mean that human
intercourse is to cease; it simply re
stricts tin propensity for interfering
and lying, now so universal, by tho-e
who hare no business to mind save
someone else's. There are limes and
junctures when it behooves even the
most reticent of mortals to unbosom
themselves and tell so much of their
private affairs as is expedient to the
moment, but this crisis is not always
recogniad; in fact there are those who

The Parliament of Australia had an
all night ion recently. It must have
been a iicturexiue proceeding. The
ringing of bells, which occurred at fre
quent interval when a vigilant member
drew att ntion to t'ne absence of
quorum, "supplied a kind of triangle
accompaniment to the trombone-like
potes of the elcepcrs." Under these
rircituistsnces, tin remark of Joseph
Cook, who complained loudly of the
"dumb, dead silence" of the sleeping
members, niti't have been ironical. The
s le pers were unmovd, however. The
postmaster-general was in charge of the
bill, but, we a iv told, his "head began
to fall gracefully forward upon bis
breast, and he pulled up his collar, as
if seeking moM warmth." Mr. Cook
was naturally indignant. "Ilere ia the

never have started on such a dangerous
game, but it appeared so very comical
that her husband's Valet should have
fallen desperately in love with tier, and
should be vi-ibly languishing under the
influence of aiirh ,n consuming pas

tatioa of leading hint on, with, as will
eventually be perceived, fatal conse
quencea to the luckless man, and in ber
case deep and lifelong remorse.
The young fellow had only been
brief time in the service when he was
smitten by the charm of the master's
wife, who waa about the same age a

on very comfortable line, the husband
being in jiossession of quite! a com

Finding the lady alone in the saloon,
he ventured on a declaration, and at

that she had been at fault, an J that she
had simply been leading him on to this

So she did not love him after all the
quiet encouragement which she appear
ed to have given him.
This rudo awakening was too much
for the wretched man. He took a re
volver out of a pocket, much to the
consternation of hi mistress, who sank
into a chair trembling in every limb,
under the belb f that ber l.t hour had
come. A sharp report, and a piercing
shriek ended all.
