Sup't. One thing that we need here is a Green House, and it is a wonder to us that some industrious man that understands the busi ness doesn't go into that when dull eare makes the hours drag Lea ily along, and tired mind needs rest from reading and ivoeation and the eye grows weary, nnd memory with a paag the scenes or beauty of other days and places, a calm, sweet, contenting, refreshing relief can be had by repairing to feastinrr the senses upon the lovely fragrant flowers. To Frescrre Flowers. It is often desirable to -preserve flowers nthered by departed friends, or render ed sacred by having decorated their cas kets. It can be easily and beautifully done by dipping th'j flowers, when fresh, and perfectly freo from moisture, into melted parafllnc.

The paratline should not be heated any more than to just melt it. The flowers should be dipped in it and moved about until no bubble of air appear abojt them. By this process they become hermetically scaled, and remain fresh and bright as when plucked from the stem. Hillyer's Hall has been furnished with seats for. an audience ol 12j, and is just such a room as our city has long needed.

There sat the lazy young men, looking on the pas6crs-by, as if they had no other business in life.

The old farmer smoked his pipe, and saw his valuable place going to wreck and ruin with the coolest indifference. The women of such a household were well deserving of pity; for on them fell the principal burden of making bricks without straw. In such a Sleepy llollow" atmosphere, the most energetic would feel a lethargy the spirits, effectually checking all advancement.
