. In his rccont book on tho Fhllosophor
Hume, ono of the aeries of " Kugliah
Men of Lotlcrs," (Harper tc. Drothors),
I'rofossor Huxley gives expression in
cidentally to somo of his own political
views. As to tho monarchy ho nays:
" At tho present day tho dangor to mon
archy in Hritain would appear to lio,
not in increasing lovo for equality, for
which, excopt as regards tho law, Kng
liatiinon hayo never cared, but rather
entertain an aversion ; nor In any ab

tho mass of Knglishmou onr tho con
tempt with which thoy viow theories in
general ; but in tho constantly-increasing
tendency of monarchy to boonino
slightly absurd ; from tho over-widening
discrepancy between modern tiolitical
ideas and tho theory of kingship. As
Hume observes, evon in his time pooplo
hail loft olf making beiiovo that a king
was a different species of man from

it is tho gonoral opinion, that a horod
itary presidont of our virtual republic
will servo tho gonoral intorcst hotter
than an eloctivo ono or not." Hpeaktug
of republicanism, I'rofessor Uuxloy re
iterates tho great truth so often incul
cated by Washington aud his compa
triots : " Tho true reason for doubting
the tKirmanonoy of a ropnblio, oven if it
is ever established, lies in the fact that
a republic reouiros for its maintenance
n far higher standard of moralitvand of
intelligence in tho mernbersof tho BtaUi
thau any other form of government.
Bsmuol gavo tho Israelites a king be

warning of what thoy wero to expct

the progress of such republics as Intro
been osublished iu tho world has not
been such as to lead to any confident
oxfioetation that their foundation is laid
on a sufTlciantiy-accuro subsoil of pub
lic spirit, morality, and intelligence.
On tho contrary, they exhibit examples
of personal corruption and ivolitical
profligacy as fluo at any hot-bed of des
potism has ever produced, whilo they
fail in tho primary duty of tho admin
istration of justice, as nouo butaneffeto
despotism has over failed." I'rofessor
Huxley bcliovcs that jmbllo opinion in
Kngland has passed through and left far
behind thn stage whou absolute mon
archy could bo recovered, aud while ho

American Students in Ucrnuiiy.
Tho number of Americans who como
to Gorinauy to tlnUh thoir studios,
writes a correspondent at Btrassburg, is
not only lsrge, but incroasing. They
atudy hero chiefly nitdicino, philology,
and music. A few hear lectures ou law
at the universities ; but tho origin, the
ory, and practice of Gerruau law, aa
wall as the highly abstrsot and anti
quated method of teaching it, are
o foreign to our views of jurisprudence
thai such students generally themselves
regsrd their lawstudlrs as a luxury and
an accomplishment, rather than a prac
tical gaiu. Though our students aro to
be found in nearly every univorsity
twn, most of thorn gather at Lcipsio
and Ilerlin. List winter Ihsro wero
moro American students at Leiptio than
thuro wero natives of all other countries
nut KurojHidn together. Tho figures
were: Americans, sixty-seven; total, sev
oiity ulue. Austria excepted, no singlo
Kurotiean nation sent so many students
lu Leipsio as America. Tho chief B tales
were represented as follows : Austria,
sutvnty-onu; Itussis, sixty-ono ; Bwit
serlaml, forty-nine ; Great 11 ri tain, nino
teeu ; Greece, fourteen ; France, four;
the United (states, sixty-seven. Tho
majority of our countrymen who atudy
in Germany arc not wealthy. Most of
them como supplied with a sum which
they think, with fair economy, will last
ono, two, or three years. Their calcu
lation is based, almost without excep
tion upau tho theory that tho expennes
of living iu Germany aro much less than
at homo. I venture to say that not one
iu llfty lives within his theoretical esti
mate. My own oxporionco ia derived
from n residence iu Leipsio aud Btrass
burg, of nearly two years, withvitlta to
lierliu, Dresden, aud other cities of
North Germany. It is uot n rare thing
to moot man who say that, had they
known tho expense of studyiugayear or

not havo come, or would have post

Form is of moro importanco than

Ho bonds tlio knoo but cannot reach and

Ono of the best writers ou abo horse
has furnished us with rules for tho se
lection of a thoroughbred. Wo aro ad
vised to choose an animal with a dcen
and wido back and loin ; with a chest to
" afford su fHcIon t room for tho heart
aud lnugs," but not too wido, for "au

is generally colled, 'deep,' so as not
only to gtvo protection to tbo content
of tho belly, bat t afford a atrong at

tho chest to tho hips ; " the ribs " must
bo act wido opart, and not huddled up
together ; " " for fast road work where
tho full uro of tho legs is gcnorally tho
limit to tho etaoaot of work, a ory
hoary carcass is aa objection, as it in
creases tho weight soon them ; And An

obliquely placed and broad blodo, well

wo havo condensed those points is
" Btonohenge." Tbo fastest trotter in
tho world today, Edwin Forrest, comes
up to tho standard samed by tbo Eng
lish critic. Ho has aono of thn charac
teristics of the cart-borao, and all of tho
points of tho substantia! thoroughbred.
Maud B., tho great four-year-old, also
has the form of a thoroughbred. The
prepotent blood in both is that of tho
running horse. Without form neither
would havo shown ao much speed as to
attract publio attention. The trotting
elements in tho pedigree of each have,
with the assistance of toe-veights, sim
ply given a new impulse to speed. Thoy
havo in fl sen cod tho motion, tho folding
of tho knee aud tho aotion of tbo stifle,
and thus enabled the two to atartlo the
country with their deeds. If a sire of
a cart-liko form and excessive knee
action is Be strongly prepotent aa to
stamp both his foraanatl iila aciiofiapoB
his progeny, you may keep breeding
him from now until doomsday withont
getting a trotter, of moro than average
merit. Admit that he simply repro
duce himself and allow no margin for
improvement. Edwin Forrest, like
Maud H., is wonderfully speedy as a
trotter, bvcante he has tlio speedy for
mation of tho thoroughbred, without
which formation he would bo merely
commonplace, iu spite uf tho trolling
elemeuts in his sncestral tree. Toe
weights, with braiua behind them, have
iu recent years played an important part
in tho development of the trotting
horse. Take an animal in which Iho
thoroughbred triumphs over tho " Can
uuck " at tho rato of seven to two, and
put him in tho hands of a Gtlden who
understands tho ne of weights, aud he
will make a trotter of him, not able
merely to go the diitance, but to do his
miles in tho quickest time. Tho horses
which win the majority of hard-fought
races in these dsys of progress, possess
uot ouly the form, but a lsrge percent
ago uf the blood of the English racer.

On every sido, as you travel through

When a nativo farmer finds he can no
longer sit in the sun and postpone his
plowing, if ho is to have any crop at
all, he catches a donkey And a goat, or
a cow and a mule, or any other crea
tures (Including his wife) that will
pull, and harnesses them to a plow
which would bo a tine curiosty for one
of our btfricnltural fairs, since it is
simply scoci sticks of wood bonnd to
gether so that the sLarply pointed end
of the main or Siandle piece, is dragged
along a little nnder the sod. Yet wo

Tbo tales form tho tressure of a very

of all the towns a'Kmnd with such men,
whose recitations, full of gestures and

Quite the opposite of this quiet and
dreamy amusement, which takes the
place of our theatres, are the shows of
tho snako-eharmers, wbo everywhere
collect pennies from admiring groups.
Thoy sit on the ground and bandlo the
aerpents in every way, allowing them to
oil about their arms, necks and body,
and dart long, forked tongnes almost
into their faces, while one of the group
hammers a Umbourino as though his
life depended on it. I cannot couceivo
how this so-called musio hoc anything
to do with the wonderful control exer
citkl over the snakes by the juggler ;
I should think they would grow cross,
rather than be " charmed" by its inces

The Kiu? of Ituriuah.
The King of Hurmah is little over 20,
and he boa boeu barely four months on
the throne. Ho is a Ull, well-built
porsousblo young man. He is very
fair in complexion, has a good fore
head, cloar, steady eyes, And a firm but
pleaAaut mouth. His chin is full aod
somewhat sensual-loukiug, but withal
ho is a manly, frauk-foced young fel
low, and is said to have gained self pos
session, and lost the early nervous awk
wardness of his new position with great
rapidity. Of his character little has
yet developed, but circumstances have
occurred to prove that he is very far
from destitute of a will of his own, and
that he has no fondness for any dimin
ution of the royal prerogative. Aa we
passed out of tho palace after tho in
terview, a house iu the palace grounds
was pointed out to me, within which
had been imprisoned in squa Id misery
over since the illness of the late king
some twenty male mernbersof the royal
blood, who were regarded as likely, if
left at large, to use efforts for the hin
drance of tlio accession of the lad who
uow sits on tho throne, and who, among
tho youngest of the sons of his father,
was selected to succeed, portly by fe
male intlueuce, partly by reason of the
belief of the ministers that he would
iutorposo little obstaole toward tho ao
oomplishmeut of tho programme of
consiitutiuual reform vrith which they
desire to begin a new reigu. And in a
stable uear by. incarcerated thoro a
month ago, aro ooutluod three of these
miuiaters, living proofs that constitu
tional reform is a ticklish aud risky un
dertaking, whon all the traditions about
the throne are those of absolutism, and
tho youngsters who aro soft seeming
and pliable when powerless nonenities,
learn swiftly to take their own part
wheu placed in a potitiou of power.
King-makers, it is true, can be king
breakers, but it is also true that many a
klug-maker ha himself beeu broken
by the king ho has mado. And I dare
asv tho ministors in tho stable there are
rather sorry now that they did not
make another choioe. Itonilo iYeirj.

Tho Smith boy was obserrod trying
his luck yesterday in a pond on a va
cant lot ou Alfred street. As far back
as last December his mother promised
him half a day out of school aa soon as
tne ush began to bite, and yesterday
was tho glorious day. Where there s
water there ought to bo flab, according
to every boy s reckoning, and this
yonth " surrounded " that wee little
pond-hole with its barrel of muddy
water with just as muoh enthusiasm as
a man wonld throw a lino rato Lake St.
Clair. He had ham, aweetcake, po
tato, dried beef and boiled egg for bait,
and when he had spit on his bait aud
cast in bis book all the Seth Greens
ever born couldn't have convinced him
that ho would fail of at least one good
bito. For two long hoars he fished
for sturgeon and pickerel and pike,
changing tbo bait now and then And
nti-rer forgetting to spit on it, And as be
hxalod np for the last time ho would
siraply admit that it wasn't just the
right sort of day to go fishing. If he
h4 had a little one lo carry home his
triumph wonld have been more com
plete, but yet his eyes were like dia
monds as be met two boys on tho cor
ner end called ont :

How They Eucliered the Old 3fan."
We ere told on the " best authority "
that a wealthy old gentlemsn residing
in a high-toned portion of this goodly
city had a beautiful motherless daugh
ter Irom whom he exacted a promise
that she would never marry without bis
sanction. Her first lover, though " poor
but honest," won her heart. The father
mected aim. And bade her, ebec&s asl-
Bo&er. Sfee said, ,4Xo LaJtall yet
marry hfaa under year ewn T99t, bet
not without yoar consent." Time
p issed along, and one evening, not long
since, her father, for her especial
amusement, gave a select masquerade
ball, to which, of course, her lover waa
not invited. While the masks were on
and mirth running high, there waa a
shout for somo one to play preacher, a
a youthful pair were to have a sham
wedding. Some one volunteered, and
the bride And groom stepped forth, he
hobbling on crutches and she gray
haired and decrepit. Their appearance
was creeled with roars of laughter,
The minister said: "Some one must
giro this bride away ; she is loo yonng
to be responsible." She chose a conple
for guardians, apparently because they
stood nearest. The ceremony waa per
formed, and tho hand-shaking And con
gratulations commenced, but the bride
bad fainted. Her husband snatched
off her mask and hia own, and in the
general consternation everybody fol
lowed suit. When lol the married
couple were the " poor bat honest" and
bis chosen one ; tbo minister a bona

hod selected her fathor and aunt to give
away tho bride, am' thus 'rith his con
sent she was marrnxl ', home to the
man of her choice, x he old man saw
the joke, pronounced them too old fcr

Tub Tcrkisu Bath. Dr. Fleming,
of Glasgow, has presented to the British
Medical Association an account of some
experiments by the author upon him
self at tho temperatures of from one
hundred and thirty to one hundred and
seventy degrees Fahrenheit, upon the
weight, temperature, pulse, respiration
and seoretions. The result showed that
tho immersion of the body in hot, dry
air, produced loss of weight to an ex
tent considerably greater thau normal,
amounting on the average at the rate of
about forty oauces au hour. This
was accompanied by an increase iu tie
temperature of the body and a rise iu
tho pulse rate, with at first a fall, then
a rise in tho rapidity of respiration.
The amount of solids secreted by the
kidneys wa increased, and coincidently
tho amount of urea. Tho sweat con
tained a quantity of solid matter in so
lution, among other thiugs a considera
ble amount of ures. The most impor
tant effeot of the bath, however, waa
the stimulation of the emuuetory aotion
of the skin. By this means, tho tissues
could, as it were, be washed by passing
water through thbm from within. The
increased temperature and pulse rato
pointed to tho necessity of -caution in
the use of the bath when the oiroulatory
system waa diseasod.
Tun "Wiokkd Weed," Hops are
first mentioned by Fliuy, the yonng
plants being oaten as a vegetable, like
our asparagus. But until the sixteenth
oentury they were not used as an ingre
dient in ber ; and. when their cultiva
tion waa first introduced from Flandors,
iu 1525, an outcry waa raised, and Par
liament was petitioned against a" wicked
weed that would spoil the taste of tho
drink and endangor the people," But
the nimiaut bitter found favor with the
publio, who relished this addition to
the previously unmitigated sweetness.
Aud ao the hop was promoted from the
hedge-row to the " garden," and ever
since, labor end money h been con-
sMBtly expended on it.
Train the Boys for Ilnslncs.
Thero Is ono clamant In tho home in
strnction which boys recoivo prior to
their advent into tho businoan world to
which too littlo attention has bocn
given. Wo moan the cultivation of
abita of punctuality, system, order
and responsibility. In too many koiiid
holds boys from twelve to seventeen
years are administered to .too mnoh by
loving mothers or othor female mem
bers of tho family. Boys' lives thrdngh
those years are tho halcyon days of their
existence. Up in the morning just in
season for breakfast; nothing to do but
start off early enough so as not to be
late; looking upon an errand as taking
so much time and memory away from
enjoyment; littlo thought of personal
appearance except when reminded by
mother to " spruce np " a littlo: finding
his wardrobe always where mother puts
it-in fact, having nothing to do bub
enjoy himself.
