To bt^ sun-, tho pupil is told I" Uii-ii out itnil point her toes, niul hold up her liead, but tliiit is about all: lind \vhat ionises the dill'ei-enec be- tWL'i.':! a li^ht or ;i heavy tread, the correct hip movement on whioh so much depends, or the position of the arms, iire seldom orkk'i-sed or explained. Hardly unis person in ;i hundred carries tho body in a correct, position while walking or standing, siinl vet the laws which proiliiro yrauis in uithui- an; very simple ami easy to acquire. The liffure in walking or in repose should incline slightly Em-ward, bending tho body u littlu at the hips. There should be no bend of the Uncos, or i-nllmir motion of tin) body. A cclebratiHl professor of physical culture, who tenches ordinary walking unions other e.vercisos, rccom- ineiids the following easy uxcrulsus for daily practice; these, he promises, will insure ffi-aee ill repose nml motion. In the first place, a con-eel, posture should be acquired while standing. Put both feet together, draw the hips well back, holdinjr the stoinuch in, project tho chest forward, draw the shoulders back, hold the head erect with eyes looking straight ahead, draw tlic chin in. To <;et an absolutely correct pose. it is a (food plan to fasten u couple of blocks to the side of a room, one five inches thick-, to come exactly at the height of the hips, and another four inches thick, to come ut the hciffht of the chin. Then stand with the chest touching the wall, the chin and abdomen being- held back by the blocks at the proper distance, with tho point of the toes two inches from the baseboard. Tf yon will assume this posture and keep it while walking-, you can never R-O vrrontf, To practice walking, first take to position described; then set the right foot back about twelve inches, a little to one side of the left foot, with tho ball of the foot only pressing the Iloor lightly; then mise on tho ball of the left foot, and at the same time swing- tho right leg forward, keeping- the knco nearly straight and pitching- the body forward at tho same time. Then perform the same movement with the left leg. Tho idea of practicing this exercise is to accustom a girl to rise easily and (jracefully on the l>all of the foot at each step, so that tho leg which is passing forward will not be made to bend much at the knee, which is very ungraceful, particularly in a woman. The foot, also, should be set squarely on the floor instead of touching 1 it first with tho heels. Uy practicing this exercise daily and very slowly, so as to glide instead of jerking along, a graceful walk, it is asserted, will bo acquired. Sometimes there aro unsuspected physical defects, however, which give an awkward gait, "I have just discovered," exclaimed a young girl the other day, who had recently joined a "ladies' athletic club," "why my shoes always run down on ono side of the heel, and why I have always walked badly. .1 am what they call knock-kneed, and neither mamma nor I ever suspected it. It is quite curable, however, they say, by taking certain exercises, and I havo strongf hopes of becoming graceful after all." Many girls are knock -kneed without being- aware of the fact It is when the knees aro so shaped that in fast walking or running they come in contact with each other; this causes the child to walk on the inside edge of her foot, and g-ivcs a most awkward gait To remedy this defect, says one professor, the pupil should stand In the attitude already, described as a correct posture, with the heels touching each other and the toes turned out. Now, without moving tho feet, mako an effort to separate tho knees by a. side movement, causing them to spring- apart. Repeat this movement without stirring the feet until the muscles are lived, several times a day, and it cannot fail eventually to straighten the legs.— N. Y. Tribune. The Mnn In lOvrnlnr Drona. "It is a well-known fact," said a citizen, "that men not habitually accustomed to wearing evening dress sometimes find difltculty in disposing of their lnvnds to their entire satisfaction; indeed, it takes a 'blooded' man to know what to do with his hands and to forget them. Tho man with his hands behind Ills buck is a familial- figure; and it is a curious fact that upon the sign» which one may seo in various parts of tho town announcing dress suits for sale or to hire and displaying tho figure of a man in evening dress, the man is almost always represented with one or both hands behind his back; even upon those painted canvases, while tho man's face is bold his hands arc shy. This seisms almost a pity. It may bo that tho painters aro moved by a subtle sympathy with the generality of mankind, or by the fact that a. human hand is a pretty difficult thing to paint; but it seems as though, both for art's sake nnd for the public instruction, they should give to tho man on canvas tho appearance and bearing of a trained society man.

' ____ ' f __ ±_ MODERN BURGLARY. ObmirvntlonH of iiu l)utnlil«r Upon the Tradit In Kngiai,,!. Roughly speaking, burglars practice either as housebreakers or warehouse bnr^rl !ll 's. In the case of the last, the iron safe, is the object of ut'.acu', and as the watehman is cither absent, decoyed away, or an accomplice, the implements used are of the largest kind, and their use not unaccompanied by noise. "Jimmies," or steel crowbars, from three to five feet long, thick, weighty, and with hooked points like eagles' beaks, ponderous "braces" for drilling holes into this locks of safes, steel wedges, and leaden hammers fac'.'d wilh leather to (leaden sound, even canisters of gunpowder for blowing out the locks, are part, of the equipment of the "safe" burglar. "Family burgling" is a separate branch of the art. The tools are far more delicate, and means of esca.po must In: provided in addition to those of forcible entry. Neat ladders of tarred rope, for fix-ing to porticoes ns a ready means of descent, are an old precaution. Hut the win; and string entanglements which arc now invariably stretched across, the paths and gardens of villas and country residences in order to trip up pursuers are a 1 recent improvement generally adopted by the profession. The equipment, of the warehouse burglar is too bulky for hand-carriage, and is always taken to the scene of action in a cab or a spring carU The house burglar carries his tools in his long overcoat; a broken overcoat button, of which one-half was found on a smashed window sill, was once used to identify a burglar. Some of the "jimmies" at Scotland yard are of very careful workmanship, unscrewing in tho center, and able to be concealed in a hat. Masks are antUruatod. precaution. One is, however, preserved, which was worn by a burglar who was detected under a, bed iu a public housa before closing time. Jturglaries committed after nine o'clock incur a heavier penalty than house break! tig achieved before that hour. For this and other reasons tho time of dinner is usually selected for the looting of a large establishment. This has only ono drawback. It leaves little timo for exploration, and tho burglar must bo well acquainted with the interior of the house. In this connection women play an important and usually an unconscious part. It is not difficult for a nice-spoken young man to get on friendly terms with tho maid servants in a large establishment, and servants take a special pride in showing their friends and admirers round a well-appointed house. A judicious appreciation of the taste displayed in the mistress' boudoir leads naturally to a view of tho bedroom, and not seldom to voluntary information us t& the position of the jewel box or safe. Nearly all the recent great jewel robberies from private houses have been effected during tho dinner hour.—Spectator. FRENCH CANADIANS. Their Supomtltlonii Four of tho Prince of DurknrM. In the legendary lore of Canada the devil plays a prominent part. Ho docs not appear as the strong angel, who fell through pride, the enemy of God, but as the mediiuval of monkish legend, the petty persecutor of man. In tho rural districts of Canada, Satan is supposed to be very active. His company may be looked for on all occasions. The accidental appearance of a little child in the room often betrays the presence of the evil spirit, as tho poor innocent is sure to bewail itself vigorously. The prince of darkness may bo met at a ball, in the guise of a handsome young man who excels all the rustic gallants in appearance. He wears gloves to conceal his claws and disregards the trammels of conventionality by keeping his hat on his head to hide his horns. Ho selects the prettiest girl in the room as his partner, but his choice is usually the village coquette, whose vanity or levity has exposed her to the evil influence.

THE MISSOURI RIVER GOING. Report* <>f Kniflncerit SlimvInK Tlmt Thll (irrait Stream In sinking Out of Slulil. The reeent survey of the Missouri river under the direction of tin: I'nited Slates (jL'ijjfi'Jiphical en^'incerin^r (le- partmeut resulted in a discovery that the stream is uudurpfoinif :i peculiar transformation. Diirinpr thc survey measurements werr made of the volume of water passing between the banks at various points from (ireat Falls, Mont., to Sioux City. It was found that the volume at <• real Fa:Is measured -I.T'-Hi cubic foot per second, while at Fort lien ton. twenty-live miles further down the river, the volume was but .|,:!'U cubic feet, a decrease of t.">." cubic feet. Owing- to the l.vsro number of tributaries emptying into the river between Fort licnlon and Sioux City a grtiiluEil increase was noted, until at tlic latter point, where the final measurement was taken, a How of 14,7TC cubic feet per second was reached. !n the opinion of some of the engineers i!ufra<*i'd in the survey the decrease in the volume between (.Irca-t Kails and )l»>rt Hen ton explains the presence oi that groat subterranean body of wa;,er known as the South Dakota artesian basin. The discrepancy can only b.) accounted for by the prosenco of an outlet in the bed of the river somewhere between the points mentioned. Directly below the upper cataract on the south bank of the river, about hall way between tho towns, is a larjje pool, in which, if frequent visitors to the place can be believed, are to be found eyeless fish of the species said tc inhabit subterranean water courses. In all probability the outlet, if one exists, is located at this point, the alleged presence of these fish tending to corroborate the theory. From here, if this surmise is oorrect, it would appear that an underground channel running in a southeasterly direction carries the water into a basin underlying a largo area of South Dakota, thus forming a huge subterranean lake, which has recently been tapped by the numerous artesian wells. Another queer discovery is noted in connection with the survey just completed. In 1S78observa- tions were taken in a similar manner, and, unless errors in calculation hava been made, since that year there 1ms been a decrease of fully 20 per cent, in the volume of water in the river. If no error has been made and the ratio of decrease continues, before fifty years have passed the once majestic Missouri will have dwindled into an insignificant rivulet.—Sioux City Journal. —lieauty Subjectively Considered.— "How is that Preston married the elder Miss Morton, who is exactly like her ugly father, when there was the younger, exactly like her handsome mother?"
