in, YOUNG FOLKS' COLUMN. CURIOSITY HOW TO TAKE A CHAIR FROM. UN ­ DER YOU WITHOUT FALLING. A 11 Amusing Game for Long Winter Even- iEgs — A Timely Suggestion About Christ ­ mas Gifts That May Be Made at Home. Christmas is coining, ariiJ||p'is time our young people were beginning : to think about such gifts as can be made by loving fingers. \With a view to assisting in this sometimes puzzling undertaking is hero reproduced a sunflower pin cushion recently designed for Harper ’ s Young People. V . A SUNFLOWER PIN CUSHION. To make this decorative and at the same time useful article, make a circle of green velvet , six inches across, and gather all around the edge. Pill it snugly with bran, so that it will be firm, and draw the string tightly, so that hone can spill out. This is the center of the flower,\ and around must be sewed the leaves in two rows. These are cut of yellow flannel, a quarter of a yard being enough, and there should be many leaves to look well. For the next row you must cut a piece of cardboard in a circle, four inches in diameter, and sew around it more leaves of flannel, very full, and fasten the cardboard ■ to the hack of the flower. Hem Over the cardboard a circle of velvet, and a gorgeous bit of color is the result. The Game of \Trades. ” Every player except the one who holds the office of reader selects a trade or profession which he or she must retain throughout the \game. When all have chosen their trade the reader opens a book at random and reads a passage from it aloud, but when he comes to any common noun he looks at one of the tradesmen, who must instantly name some article that he is supposed to have for sale, or some implement connected with the exercise of his craft. By this substitution of one noun for another the most pathetic passage is converted into an indescribable jumble of absurdities, in the following burlesqued ex ­ tract from an Eastern tale, the words in ital ­ ics are supposed to be supplied by the differ ­ ent tradesmen in place of the nouns omitted by the reader: “ One offered the prince a bucket of the most precious mutton chops of Golconda; another a curious piece of a Wellington boot made by a European artist; another a piece of the richest plum pudding from, the looms of China; another a gridiron, said,to be a sovereign remedy against all poisons . and infectious diseases; another a choice piece pf the most fragrant Turkey rhubarb in a warming pan inlaid with acid drops; another a coffin full of genuine treacle; another c rocking horse of the purest breed of Arabia; and another a Flanders brick of exquisite beauty. The whole court of the palace was overspread with gingerbread nuts; and long rows of slaves were contin ­ ually passing loaded with corn plasters, ten- penny nails, beeswax and other expensive articles. ” An Athletic Feat. In order to perform the feat illustrated in the cut, of taking a chair from under you without falling, you must lay yourself down on three chairs, throw up your chest, keep your shoulders down and your legs as stiff as you possibly can (see cut). AN EASY FEAT. Having assumed the position, described, take the center chair from under your body, carry it over, and place it again under your body on the opposite side. Although this at first sight appears difficult, yet in reality it is very easy; it is as well, however, to have a chair of a rather lighter construction for the middle one, as you are thereby enabled to perform it with less strain upon the muscles of the body and apm. An Interesting Irat Exasperating Bird. The catbird is one of the most interesting, and at the sametime exasperating, of birds. He seems to devote much of his time to hear ­ ing himself talk. One writer has very aptly called him a first cousin of the mocking bird, whom he resembles in person much more than in voice. The catbird is an unmistaka ­ ble Bohemian. By nature he is peculiarly gleeful, and he has a beautiful slate gray coat, set off by a black head and tail, all of which entitles him to pass for a polished, cul ­ tured, aristocratic bird. But, alas! he cares nothing for this. With the laziness of a self indulgent Bohemian, he sits by the hour in the most indolent of attitudes, with wings and tail drooping listlessly. He builds his nest as he does everything else. The great loose mass of coarse twigs, heaped together and patched up with pieces of newspaper or anything that happens to come in his way, looks as if it would hardly bear his weignt. He lines it, however, with fine bits of dark roots, and when the beauti ­ ful green eggs are laid in it you feel sure that such an artistic looking bird must take a peculiar pleasure in the contrasting colors. High trees have an unsocial aspect, and so we find him in low bushes on the edge of a river, or oven by the side of the garden, en ­ joying the sun and his own company. Where. Corals Are Found. Corals are of many colors, the most beauti ­ ful of which is the red coral This .grows on the rocks'that lie in the bottom of the sea, in little groves of trees, each stalk of which : looksiike a red leafless shrub, bearing small starlike flowers. The largest coral reefs are found in the warm waters of the Pacific ocean, although some varieties of coral grow in all oceans. The coral employed in jewelry comes mostly from the Mediterranean and Red seas; the dark fed is brought from the Afri ­ can coast of the Mediterranean, and also from-the Red sea, the pink from the coast of Italy, the yellow from the coast ..of Sar dinia , and the black from the Red sea. The princi ­ pal coral fisheries are situated along the coast of Sicily, at the mouth of the Adriatic sea, in the strait between Sardinia and Cor ­ sica and off the coast of Algeria. The Union. Commander of Gettysburg — To-' pograpliical Engineer on the Potomac. Gen. George G. Meade was bdrn in Cadiz, Spain, Dec 30,' 1815, and died in Philadelphia, Nov. G, 1872. He graduated at West Point in 1S35, served in the Florida war, and re ­ signed Oct. ,26, 1836. From 1837 to 1842 he was assistant ongineer in the government survey of the delta of the Mississippi, the Texas boundary, and the northeast boundary of the United States. On May 19,1842, he was reappointed in the army as second lieu ­ tenant of topographical engineers; Served throughout the war with Mexico, was bre- vetted first lieutenant for gallant con ­ duct, and on his return was presented, with a sword by the citizens of Phila ­ delphia. He was made captain of engineers in lS56,.was commissioned brigadier general of (.volunteers Aug. 31, 1861. On June 18, 18S2, he was made major of the topographical engineers, commanded a corps of the Army of the Potomac in the Maryland campaign, land was made major general of volunteers Nov. 29. On June 28,1863, he was called to suc ­ ceed Gen. H°oker in command of the Army of the Potomac, and on July 1-3 he fought the battle of Gettysburg. He was made brigadier general in the United States army July 3, major general in the United States army Aug. 18,1864. From July 1,1865, to Aug. 6,1866, he was in command of the mili ­ tary division of the Atlantic; in 1866-67 of the department of the east, and subsequently of the military district comprising Georgia, Florida and Alabama, with headquarters in Philadelphia. Hew York Marriage Laws. A curious result of the marriage laws in New York state has recently been noted. It is claimed that it is possible there ror a man to have several lawful wives at the same time; that he can be married to a fresh wife every five years under the section which permits re-marriage-(but forbids di ­ vorce) ' after desertion for that length of time. But the law also provides that every marriage legal where contracted is valid here ; and that a divorce obtained in another state is not valid in New York, unless both parties were under the jurisdiction of the court granting it. Jones, marries, brings his: wife to New York, applies in Chicago for a divorce, and obtains it. That divorce, valid in IHinois and not valid in New York, ena ­ bles him to marry another woman in Illinois, and the New York courts recognize that marriage as valid and compel him to support both wives. He may repeat this ten times a year and fill his harem. The courts will up ­ hold all the marriages as valid and throw out all the divorces. Battle Cries. The quatrain, This hand, to tyrants ever sworn the foe. For freedom only dealt the deadly blow; Then sheathes in calm repose the vengeful blade, For gentle peaee.in freedom ’ s hallowed shade, was written ip an album by President John Quincy Adams. “ Remember the Raisin ” was the war cry of the Kentucky troops with Harrison, after the massacre at .Frenchtown, on the river Raisin, twenty miles south of Detroit, July 22,1812. The victims of this massacre, perpetrated by the Indians who were in league with the infamous British Gen. Proctor, were mainly Kentucky sol ­ diers; hence the subsequent adoption of the war cry by the troops from the Blue Grass country. “ Our Federal Union; it must be preserved, ” was the toast given by Andrew Jackson at the Jefferson birthday celebration in 1830. ---- — ... ---- The-Magic'Apple. \ V Pass a needle and. thread under the skin of a soft apple, which is easily done by putting the needle in again at the same hole it came out of, and so passing it on until you have gone right round the apple. Then take both ends of the thread in your hands and care ­ fully pull them, saas to draw the middle por ­ tion of the thread through the apple, which will then be divided into two parts. By re ­ peating the. process you may divide the fruit into as many parts as you please, without breaking the ried. The apple may be given to some person to peel, and as soon as the rind is removed it will fall to pieces. Population of the Celestial Empire. The present population of China no man knows. Orientals do not care for statistics. No census has ever been taken. The vaguest guesses are indulged in. The guide books and encyclopedias give apparently the exact figures, but these are obtained by taking seven estimates in round figures by the seven different men who have traveled there and dividing the total by seven, which, of course, will give odd figures. It is generally sup ­ posed that China has about 300,000,000 people — that is to say, about ninety-five to the square mile. A Degree of Latitude. The minute variation in the length of a degree of latitude at the equator and the poles is caused, or supposed to be caused — no one knows anything about it — by the supposed flattening of the earth at the poles. The degrees of lati ­ tude are there marked, as you will readily 'observe, on. a plane surface, not a curved surface, and tbe difference is the difference in length over a hill and through ’ -a hill, or between an arc and its chord. .Care of tUb : Complexion — New 'Remedy for/Sleeplessness — Hot Water Cures. Women who want to enjoy to the full the pleasures of a summer ’ s vacation in the country and yet hope to look well and be well,' will find help in a few precautions. First, the diet must'be regular, and a woman must not overtax her physical' strength while taking exercise or indulging in walks and; rides of unaccustomed length. If she is to bo much in the open ah 1 , a wido brimmed hat should be worn. One is not always sure of an umbrella just when needed, but a hat furnishes an ever ready protection from a too ardent sun.. Gloves should not be for ­ gotten. Gnats or mosquitoes generally form an accompaniment of summer excursions, and the hands' need protection from-them as well as from wind and sun. Bites and stings should never be scratched with the nails. A little diluted arnica or hamamelis in a small double corked bottle, such as is used for smelling salts, is carried by many ladies, and often proves a speedy cure for the bites of in ­ sects* scratches from thorns and 100 of small mishaps, any one of which may happen to a gay party in starch of woodland treasures. Then, too, the blinding white light of seaside and country, so trying to eyes unused to the glare, should be provided against with a pair of tinted glasses that may die worn whenever needed. Much present comfort and future benefit attend a few such little cares as these. A Suggestion to the Sleepless. What is it that disturbs sleep? The popu ­ lar view that noise is the disturbing cause touches the truth without quite grasping it. It cannot be noise altogether; for the inhabi ­ tants of besieged towns have been known to sleep through the roar of bombardment and to waken suddenly when the firing ceased. The rattle of a . train in motion will induce sleep, as even those who are ordinarily very poor sleepers often find! The true cause is in ­ terruption. A sudden cessation of either con ­ tinued silence or sound awakens. For sound, providing it be monotonous, has precisely the same effect on the brain as silence. The alarm clock is based on this theory of inter ­ ruption — it interrupts silence. -• Now, suggests The English Medical Jour ­ nal, might not an equally simple contrivance be made on the same mechanical principles, but with the reverse object, viz: That of in ­ suring. sleep by sound ? Its utility to delicate persons especially would be undoubted. Call it the morphiometer or somniferant, or christen it the sleep preserver — a name that would truly designate its object, for its real object would not be so much to promote sleep as to insure the sleeper against disturb ­ ance (the vulnerable side of light sleepers) by placing a bulwark of sound between him and the sudden shocks cf extraneous noise. Let your sleep preserver produce the drowsy monotonous buzz of the humming, top, not so loud as to be heard in an adjoining room, but loud enough to drown distinct noises when placed close to the bedside or hung over the pillow. Hot Water Remedies. In many emergencies hot water is not only easily obtainable, but also the very best remedy that could he used. Hall ’ s Journal of Health enumerates some instances in which it is of great benefit. A strip of flannel or napkin folded lengthwise and dipped in hot water and wnmg out, and then applied around the neck of ,a child that hes- the croup, will usually bring relief in ten min ­ utes.- A towel folded several times and dipped in hot water and quickly wrung and applied over the toothache or neuralgia wifi gener ­ ally afford prompt relief. This treatment in colic works like magic; There is nothing that so promptly cuts short a congestion of the lungs, sore throat or ^rheumatism as hot water when applied promptly and thor ­ oughly. Tepid water acts promptly as an emetic, and hot water taken freely half an tour before bed time is the best cathartic possible in the ease >of constipation, while it has a most soothing effect -upon the stomach and bowels. This treatment, continued a few months, with proper attention to diet, will cure any curable case of dyspepsia. Head ­ ache almost always yields to ’ the simultaneous application of hot water to the feet and the back of tho neck. A Cat Finger.- \When a finger is badly cut it should be tied up and left alone for a Gay or two ; the blood dries on the outside and forms a .case within which the injury may heal without any fur ­ ther trouble.

An obelisk symbolizes to the Egyptians the Supreme Being. The first mentioned in history was that of Rameses, king of Egypt, about 1485 B. C. The obelisks improperly called “ Cleopatra ’ s needles ” were erected by Thotomes III, at On, Heliopolis, about 1500 B. C., one of which- now stands on tho Thames embankment. Another is in Central park, New York, and another in the Place de la Concorde, Paris. Frederick Douglass. Fred Douglass was reared as a slave on tho plantation of CoL Edward Lloyd, in Maryland, until, at the ago of 10, he was sent to Baltimore to live with a relative of his master. He secretly learned to read and write, was employed in a shipyard, and, in accordance with a resolution long enter ­ tained, fled from Baltimore and from slavery, in September, 1838, being then about 2L . Birst Republican Convention'. The first national convention at the Re ­ publican party was held at Philadelphia, June 18,1856, and the nominees of that con ­ vention were: For pfesidefit, John C. Free-, mont; for vice president, William L. Day- ton. Manners and Customs Practiced . in Polite Society. People in pretty country or suburban places can hardly devise a happier form of entertaining than the . garden party. There may be a little awkwardness at first where people are unused to these parties. Without the accustomed shelter of a house guests may feel a little forlorn and wander dismally about for a time, but a hostess of tact soon suggests forming parties for whatever sports or games are provided, and after the first stiffness is over, any one can find congenial entertainment of some sort. The garden party proper is held entirely in the open air. The hostess receives upon the lawn, wealing her hat cr bonnet, and lady guests always wear bonnets. Upon arriving at the house guests are shown upstairs to lay aside wraps and brush off dust, if they wish to, and are then shown to where the hostess is receiving. It is proper for a lady to ask for an invita ­ tion for a friend to a party that is to be en ­ tirely out of doors, as there will always be plenty of room. Still no lady should take offense if, such a request is net granted, as a hostess may have excellent reasons for re ­ fusing; Lawn tennis, croquet, archery and, for those disinclined to active exertion, card tables furnish sources of amusement at these picturesque assemblies. Sometimes a pi form for dancing is'provided, and a band of music is another pleasant feature cf enter tainment. , ' These parties are sometimes conducted on the principle of an afternoon tea. The hos ­ tess receives in the house., the guests then wander through the grounds and return to the house for refreshments when fatigued. This is a modification of the . garden party which meets with, approbation from the timid, the elderly and the rheumatic, and is less troublesome to the entertainer than serving refreshments on the lawn. Where grounds are-ample and handsome, the garden party proper, however, Is a beau ­ tiful and enjoyable affair. A FULL LINE OF PURE DRUGS, CONSTANTLY ON HAND.

J “ Sir” and “Madame.” “ Sir ” and “ madame ” or “ ma ’ am ” are terms by far to frequently used by many persons in this country. In England* under ordinary circumstances, neither “ sir ” nor “ madam ” is considered proper, excejc on the lips of in ­ feriors. A man in speaking to a lady that is a stranger to him should address her as “ madam ” and never As “ miss, ” if she has reached tbe age of womanhood.
