HINTS FOR THE HOME. NKWSPAPKB READERS.—The man who roads many newspapers finally comes to think in grooves. Even his speech is affected by it. He ceaaes to talk Eng- lish, and begins to converse in journalese. Certain adjectives to him always accompany certain substan- tives. BusÏJaesø," he says, "is stagnant," It is in- variably so in the newspapers. They are hidebound. For instance, in the newspapers a bride should always be beautiful, a bridegroom distinguished, a magistrate upright, a statesman profound, a seaman bronzed. neck swan-like, a bosom of ivory, a stream limpid, a cry heart-rending, a tite picturesque, an adventuro unheard of, a crime hideous, anguish mortal, appear- ances deceitful, tears bitter, an abyss fathomless, a fortune princely, lightning blinding, conflagrations de- va- tating, an assassin a Thug, conscience a still small TiJice, a community (ours) intelligent, citizens promi- nent, darkness Cimmerian, a poor horse a Rosinante, a silent man a sphinx, a silent woman—no namefoi her. The list might be extended almost indefinitely, but the intelligent newspaper reader can at once continue it. THE PURE HEART.—Who are the pure in heart ? Not those whose outward lives wear the semblance of ex- treme sanctity—not se whose voices are loudest in the songs of whose good deeds are blazoned forth to the world. The truly pure in heart are sensi: tive, shy, unobtrusive men and wcmen, who traverse their appointed way as modestly as some hidden rivulet flows through a quiet vale. There is no fretting or foaming, or dashing impetuously onward. Their course is marked only by the fertility and beauty which attend it. But those, who by their innocent purity of heart, most truly realise the min- in of the phrase, are little children. Watch a little child in some of those light little troubles which pass, like a summer cloud, over the pure mirror of its thoughts. Is it not evident some seraph hand dries the tears ere they have time to leave one btain < n the rosy cheek ? Watch that little child in its moments of happiness, mark ita radiant eye, listen to its accentf cf joy, and you will be sure that some spirit-voice 4s whispering ecstatic promises to its soul. Talk to a little child of Heaven, and straightway Heaven a mirrored in its face. Watch an active, healthy boy in his outdoor pastimes; he is always daring, always reckless, always in peril of life or limb, yet alwnys upheld and saved by some angel hand. HELPING A PRETTY GIRL.—Maybe a man feelr happy and proud and flattered and envied and blessed among men when he sees a pretty girl trying to raise a window of a railway car and jumps up and gete ahead of the other boys, and says: "Allow me?" Oh, so courteously, and she says "Oh, if you please; I would be so glad," and the other male passengers turn green with envy, and he leans over on the back of the seat and tackles the window in a knowing way with one hand, if peradventure he may toss it airily with a simple turn of the wrist; but it kind of holds on, and he takes hold with both hands, but it sort of doesn't go to any alarming extent, and he pounds it with his fist, but it only seems to settle "a leetle closer into place," and then he comes around and t-he gets out of the seat to give him a fair chance and he grapples that window and bows up his back and tugs and pulls and sweats and grunts and strains, and his hat falls off and his suspender buttons fetch loose and his waistcoat buckle parts and his face Rets red, and his feet slip, and peoplo laugh, and au irreverent young man in are-mote 8pat grunts ftud f?ros;ns every time he lifts, and criep, "5i<>w, then' altogether as if in mockery, and he bursts hit collar button and the pretty young lady, vexed at being made so conspicuous, says in her iciest manner. "Oh, never mind, thank you; it doesn't make aay di lrrenc. and calmly goes and sits down in another stat, and that wearied man gathers himself together IHd a book upside dowr.—oh, doesn't he feel just pood. Maybe; but don't be enough to ex- tend any your sympathy. He doesn't need it — Ha trt'ye. "HE'LL NEVER SET THE TEMSE Oil "18.1 Many years ago, before machinery was introduced into Sour mills for the purpose of sifting the flour, it was the custom of the miller to send it home unsifted. The process of sifting was done thus, but principally in Yorkshire The teniae," or seive, which was provided with a rim which projected from the bottom f it, worked over the mouth of the barrel intn "/hich vie flour or meal was sifted. An active fellow, who worked hard, not un frequently set the rim of the temse" on tire by force of friction against the rim of the ir barrel; so that, iR fact, this part of domestic employment became a standard by which to test a will or capacity to work hard'; and thus ot alazy How, or one deficient in strength, it was said, "I;o will never set the temse on fire." The Ions; misuse of the word temse for seive, as well a the super eding of hand labour by machinery in this particu:-v species of work, may possibly have tended to substitution otscnd for sense, in such phrases 8,3 "E,. will never set the Thames on fire," the Mersey "'1 or any other river. «
