The Uort of WoT«rame»t. 1 Mr. Edward Atkinson illustrau* the »ttr»K* ooit of fowament la America pod Boi-op* by ft rery striklnjf statement. He ihointh»t the wstnal annual oott of all the Junction* of our goTcm* m«nt, Including tbe maintenance of government la the Territories and oi armUi and narlei and payment of the war debt is equal to the yearly earning of (00,000 men; that of Great Britnin ud Inlaid to the labor of 1,674,000 men; that of France to the united in«. dortry of 8.000,000 men; that of Ger- mnt to the earnings of 2,400,000 men; that of Italy to the molt, of tb« labor <sf a.860,000 men. U'rBsUUT RUMS. Three or fovr dollars oonld hardly be invested in a way more likely to afford an alraoel inezaanitlble fund of amusement, iMtrMtton, and general mental aud moral preti, than la the purchase of a bound roUuM ot Harper's T*vnf Fttpli. Long storl** and short stories, versee grav* and gay, bits of adrtoe, talk) and anecdotes olulr** and dogs, elephants ana bears, pa pert on boating and riding, game* tor Indoort amd out, sketcbe* ot travel and exploration, account* ot boys who became famous, pnx- sles, sports, tan of all healthy kl»d»—In fact, It wonld be difficult to lay what is not to be loaud within these WO ample pages. And the* the protttio and delightful pictures 1 Surely never were Touog folks to favored ui tkose who can count this among their possession* I (A. 0. MoOlurg * Oo.) Tbe criticism might be made npon Frances A. Humphrey'* "Children ot Old rark'« Tavern" (Harper * Brothers,) tuat the children hare old beads npon young shoulders, and that though profoisedly u Inventle; the book contained much that only "big folks" can appreciate. Nevertheless it ts a story to be «u)jyed by young and old. There are plenty of adventures from the flnt chapter to tho last. Xaere is an evening wltb Daniel Webster at Marshfleld. There are ipelUng-malohe*, amateur menagerlae and art gtlUrl«i,wurna- mente, Thankglvlng day*, military ball*, and what notlAndthrongnall then U an old- time flavor wbleh adds to tbe excellent qual tty o< the story. These children will make many trtends.-(A.«. MoOlnrg * Co., Uhioa- go.) To many, the soluilon of the labor problem «eem» as far off as ever, yet It is al • Ways lateref Untf to know what clear beaded thlmker* bare to say upon this maoh dlscui- ted topic. Mr Simon Kewoemb's "A Plain Man's Talk on the Labor Questlm" (Harper A Bros.) U a ronoise and extremely lu jld pre- Mntatton of the case, abounding in olau.lblo argument* and pertinent Uluitratlont, and so readable that once begun the little volumu will not be laid aside U'lfinlshed. Dividing his subject into three parta: Society and Ita Wants, Capital and it* U«es, The Luboror and hit Wngaa, the author shows that society la u oo-operatlve union with common lu-ereats that labor orgaulzutlonn might Do of Immensu benefit to their members, but thus far havu proved an evil j tnat the railway question has two ildea; that rloh men and capitalists have been » blosaing rather than a ourae, vhat never before could an indimtrlona laborer make ft living so easily as he can today, with much more that is pertinent and auvgvstlve. While he does not claim to have settled the question, ho nay well oluj 11 to have brought forward aome views upon it which are well worthy the candid oonnidora«*on of all olaag. •s. (A. 0.

Investigating everything in the room it ota of inj, bird's greatest pleasure*, and moat atcraottve of all he fl&dA tho drawer of my desk, on the edge ol Which h» stand* delighted and bo- wlkiered by the variety before him. Great would be the hnroc If I were n6t there; and the ourlooa tldng about it is that h« will pull things over oarelwslr, with one eye on me, to see If I objevt If, on touching som» particular thing, he sees that I do not approve,—and he recognizes my sentiment AS quickly ns •a bright child would,—that thing, aud that only, ho will have. At onoe he enatehos it nnd flies away across the room, and I may chnso him in vain. Ho regards it as a frolic got up for bis amusement, and DO child ever equaled him in dodging; he cannot be driven, and if cornered ho uses his wings, simply put my wits against his, follow him about till he hiw to drbp his load to breathe, when a sudden start sends him off, and I secure it. Ml cover up anything, he knows »t onoe it is some forbidden treasure, and devotes all his energy and cunning, which are great, to uncovering and possessing himself of it. He opcne any box by delivering sharp blows under the edge of the cover, and hides my postage-stamps in books and magazines. He hops around the floor in a heavy way, as often sideways as straight, and holds his toes as close together as though he had worn tight boots all his life. If startled, he bounds up into the air in the oddest way, a foot or two, or even more, generally turning half around, and coming down with hie head the other way. If much alarmed, he will bounce up in this wav half a dozen times in quick (accession, and should he happen to be on a table, at the time he usually ends by landing on the floor. His alighting after any flight is most singular; he comes to the floor in a crouching position, k'gs sprawled, body horizontal and nearly touching the matting, looking like a bird gone mod; then instantly springs up BIX or eight inches, half turns, and stands upright, crtot erect, and looking excited, almost frightened. If much disturbed, he cornea down with wings half open, tail held up, aud every feather awry, oa if he were out in a gale, uttering at the some time a loud squawk. He ie a most expert catcher, not only seizing without fail & canary seed thrown to him, but even fluttering bite of falling paper, the hardest of all things to catch. The blue-jay is a bird of opinions about most things, and able to express himself quite clearly; on, for example, when he found himself under a chair without rounds, on which he likes to perch, he stood and looked around on every side, and made a low, complaining cry, plainly a protest against so unnatural a chulrt and again when he scolded at the rain thatcumeiu sudden gusts againat the window, or charged furiously at the crack under a door when ho heard sweeping outside. In general he is very quiet when one is in tbo room, but the moment tho door closes behind the lost person his voice is heard,—whistling exactly like a boy, calling, squawking, and occasionally uttwlng a sweet though not loud song, which is varied by a sound like rubbing a cork against glass.' The most quiet approach silences hirn. When under strong emotion he muy squawk or scream before spectators, but he nover whistles or sings when he knows uny one is in tho room. When out of his sight, and HO long .silent that he has forgotten mo, I have now and then hoiml tne song. The funniest thing this knowing fellow doeM is to stamp hix feet, and it is a genuinu expression of impationco or displeasure. When I "take something away from him, or ho thinks I mean to do so, or refuse him something he wants, ho stundu Htill, and jerks bis OM, in such a way that thoy stomp with a loud sound, us if they were of Iron. It is very droll. In serious anger, he adda to this, bowing and curtsying by bending tho legs, snap, ping the bill, pocking, and jumping up with tho body without 'lifting tho feet — Olive Thome Miller in Atlantic. An Unfortcuittn Occurrence- About eight years ngo, writes a correspondent of tho BoHtou Herald, I had apartments in a house kept by a Gorman lady of good family, but reduced financial stutiifl, living hero in New York. The lady of tbe house had two daughters, who were somewhere between 13 and 16 yours of ago. Both of them were pretty children, and one of thorn astonished the neighbors, as well as her parents, one fine day by running off with a rich mnn'tt son and becoming his wife. The other stuck to the family circle, and still lives with her mother. I hod not soon her in all tho long interval betweon that time aud this, until one aftornoon a month or so ngo a tall, handsome young lady, of stately carriage aud generally striking appearance, walked Into my office, and placed her viHitiug-card upon my desk. The little girl had grown to womanhood, and to vary beautiful womanhood at that. I talked with her for some time, and finally learned that she hod come, with some more or loeb vague notion of my wlndom and sagacity, to oak advioo in regard to the question that sooner or lator agitates us all. She said: "Tuoro la an old gentleman who Is very much in love with mu. He has a great deal of monoy, and bo would raako me bis wife to-morrow. Ho Is a man of cultivation and refinement, and his homo is almost a palace. Thnro is another mnn who in much youngor than this one I have mentioned, and ho, too, loves me. Ho i» not wealthy, bnl he has something of a buaiuuss poMtion, aud hU prospocUi wo very good." "Naturally you nrofor'tho younger man," I luterjoctod. "Naturally. At tho same ttme the circumstances of my family aro nol what thoy should bo, although wo llvu comfortable enough. Tho question that troubles me moat is as to whether it is not my duty to marry for the ad- .t my parents, who have ifi good Oftre of me, and for whom I cotijd certainly afford to. make •otna'iaorifloe." , ' • I am rather afraid that the advice 1 gave the young lady was somowhat unroinantio and cynical. It Was to the effect that she had better become tbe old man's darling, mainly for the treason that he would probably die In the course of a few years, in which cose sh» would, by reason of her fortune thus acquired, become nil the more charming in tho eyes of the more youthful, but financially the less solid, lover. The young laxly Raid she was much obliged, and went awny. I didn't see her Again .until to-day, when she once moro came into the office and sat down at the end of my desk. "I shall have more confidence in your advice hereafter," she said, with a demure expression of countenance that was somewhat mnufi-ng. "Why," 1 asked. "Have you concluded to marry the old millionaire?" "No," she responded. "The fact of the matter is that he died last week. Unfortunate, wasn't UP" A CEILB'S Bar* and Scalp Covered with Eo- zematotu Scabs and Sores Cured by Cntlcnrn. M l little ion, aged etrbt year*, has been afflicted with Eczema of tb* icalp, and at tltaes a great portion of the body, ever since he was two years old. It began in his ears and extended to bis sca'p,which became covered with ictbs and sore*, and from which a sticks fluid poured out causing intense itching nnd distress, and leaving hi*' hair matted and lifeless, underneath these scab* the skin wa* raw, like a, piece of beefsteak. Gradually tbe hair came out and wds destroyed, nntil bnt a intuit patch was left at the back of the head. My friends in Peabodv know ho«r my littlo boy boa suffered. Ai night be wonld (cratch hi* head until hi* pillow was covered with blood. I used to tie bis hand* behind him, and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching: but It was no use, he would scratch. I took him to the hospital and to the best physician* in Pea. body without lucres*. About this time, so-ne friands, who had been cured by the Cutlcura BemeiUe , prevailed npon me to try them. 1 began to u*<> them on the lith of January last. In seven months every particle ot tbe disease wan removed. Not a spot or »aab remains on his scalp to tell the story of his raftering. His hair bos re'urned, anc Is thick and strong, and his scalp a* sweet and clean as any child's in tbe world. I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for this wonderful can by the CuUcurtv Remedies, and wish all similarly tffitctvd to know that my statement is tine and without exag geratlon.
