The door of a vine-clad little cottage opened suddenly, and a maiden clad in white appeared and walked toward the thick, dark, coed forest back of the vil lage. She was Alexia vonamagdra Less chneiflovitch, daughter of tho wealth iest man in the village. By her side gamboled her little white dog Fido velovitch.

No two Individuals can come into con tact with each other without each be ing affected by that contact. An infer ior may help or harm a superior; but as a superior may the more easily help an inferior, so the superior is in the greater danger ot harming the inferior. It is generally a matter of more importance, ultimately, to grown people how they act in the presence of children, than how children act in their presence, la view of this truth, it is the duty of eve ry one to study how he should act in the presence of those with whom he may be thrown.

An ingenious builder of town flats was struck recently by an idea which he has put into effect with great suc cess in his latest building. Ho noticed that ono of tho first things his tenants did when they went into a house waa to bang portieres in every available doorway. Ho has saved them some trouble and himself the expense of doors by putting a simple rod for tho curtain instead of tha door in each of the inner doorways in his latest flats. Hie idea was novel enough to catch the househunting mind, and he gets more rent for the flats than though they were fitted with doors, and has no lack of tenant.

In Vermont a liquor seller.brought before the courts, urged in defense that ho had so reduced his whisky by water that a roan could not get drunk on it. He came very near proving his case, but unfortunately for him, in an unguarded moment he had sold one glass of unadulterated whisky, and a fine was the consequence. Some birds have the sense, in stinct, discretion, or whatever it may be called, to keep their nests in har mony with their surroundings. For instance: When the wren builds her nest near the ground she forms her nest of tho long, withered grass, such as grows about the spot. When her nest is in a spruce tree she covers it with green moss, which resembles the foliage of the spruce. - A resident of the town of Corina, Minn., in digging for a cellar came across tho remains of seven persons in a good state of preservation. They were found in a kind of a mound, were buried with their beads down, and were from seven to eight feet in height, and must have been placed there at least two hundred years ago, as on the top of the mound was the stump of an old elm tree two feet in diameter. Tobscco culture is being pushed energetically in Florida, and an at tempt to induce Cubans to immi grate there and grow the weed is be ing made. A commission, with tha' object, has started for Havana. The ashes of very old wood do not contain so much potash as ashes o! wood of younger growth. Ashes gen erally pay well on all ordinary croj but are specially adapted to the went of fruit trees, grape vines and all kinds of vines, clover and peas. NAPOLEON'S PORTRAIT. Ft la Own Words to lj.nd, the Artist, Who rainted His 1'ictnr. When David was commissioned to . paint his pietnre of Napoleon crossing the Alps he asked the First Consul to name a day when he would sit. "Sit." said Botiaj afte; "to what good? Do you suppose tba great men of anti quity sat for their portraits?" But I paint you for your own times, for men who have known and seen you; they expect a pood likeness. "A good likeness! It is not the exactitude of the features, the little wart on the-, nose, that makes a likeness. What ought to be painted is the t-haract' - of the physiognomy. No one inquires if the portraits of grent men are alike; it i quite enough if they manifest their genius. I his story shows how early the pprpose was former! in Bonaparte's mind to render himself the subject of a myth, and to thia end he sought to employ poet as well as painters. It was totally unnecessary; for his aspir ation in Italy, in 1800, was in itself quite sufficient to render him a legend ary hero. A young roan of ansU-re manners, ascetic appearance, with the head and fai-e of an ideal Caesar, say ing little but doing much, deterred by no scruple and by no obstacle, leading his dazd and fascinated army from Turin to Milan, from Milan to Verona, from Yerotis to Veniee. he could not fail to arouse the imagination of friend nd foe. Portraits more evidently mythical were not slow to . ap pear, sometimes accompanied, by enthusiastic verses. Bonaparte ca reenng through Italy on a living steed, with Fame blowing a trumpet and holding in readiness the palm of victory, well expressed the popular idea of the hero of Areola. But foreign nations were not lhti3 fascinated. To England especially he was becoming a terror and a danger. His portraiture at this time was chiefly in the hands of the caricaturists, and it is curious notice how difficult they found the Ef fort to make it lodierous and ugly. Rowland son's "First Consul," with hi3 powdered hair, bis feeble face, stiff cravat, cambric-tipped, long red man tle, short frock, tri-colored scarf and brigand hA surmounted with a tri eolored pkirae. must have appeared to mir grandfathers like some Twelfth Night" character. But Gillray. with better art, really gavo the public some thing like a resemblance of Bonaparte. Not much, however, eoul 1 be done te yond rendering bis thin features ex cessively g.-tunt and grim, and repre senting his height as Lilliputian. "Little Bouncing B.," or "Little Boney," was Johnny Bull's good humored notion concerning the man who over the water took such gigantic proportion. The Engrish caricaturists conceived him as an iron-hearted homi eide, capable, when needful, of being most insinuating and plausible. Their portraiture has all the character of & popular myth, profoundly true in it self, but singularly coarse and brutal, handled, after their own manner. In one of G'l'rr-.y's desigrns we get Bona parte's portrait rendered as hang-dog and felonious as possible in the midst of all kinds of emblems intended to set forth the popular English notion of republican France. Around the portrait are written the words: "And God made Bonaparte and rested from His labors." Magazine of ArL SCHOOL OF PATIENCE. Tho Sort of Mas hw. Fortitude Tries a Fettow's strencta. My dear boy, if a man can only cul tivate patience and strength it seems to me lie win oe a goou neighbor, a pleasant man to do business witlu a safe man to trust and the kind of a man the world loves, even though he lack wisdom, and hath no genius, and em't tell a good story or sing a note. How much does the fretful, restless hurry ing old world owe to the patient ni-tn, and confidence," who can be patient with our faults, our fancies, our wick edness; who can be quiet when the oftest word would have a sting; who can wait for storms to blow over and for wrongs to right themselves; who can patiently and silently endure a slight until he has forgotten it and who can even be patient with himself. That s the fellow, my boy, who tries my patience ana strengtn more than any man else with whom I have to deal. I could set along with the rest of the world well enough if he were only out of it. I can meet all my other cares and enemies bravely and cheerfully enough. But when myself conies to me, with his heart-aches and blunders and stumb ling, with his own follies and troubles and sins, somehow he takes all the tuck out of me. My strength is weak ness and my patience is folly when I come to deal with him. He tires me He is sneh a fool. He makes the same stupid b'hnders in the same stupid way o many times. sometimes when I think I must put np with him tnd his ways all my life, 1 want to give up. And then the next time he comes to me with his cares and the same old troubles, he seems so helpless and pen itent that I feel sorry for him, and try to be patient with him. and promise to help him all I can once more. Ah. bit dear boy, as you grow older, that is the fellow who will try you, and tor ment you, and draw on your sympathy and tax your patience and strength. Be patient with him, poor old , fellow, because I think he does love yon, and vet. as ft rule, von ar harder on him than any -one else. Burdeite, in Chi cago Journal. .
