The evening of last Thursday was spent by almost every one who was ahle to be about, in having a good time, and this wjis accomplished at the ball room and paity. The clear, frosty night, which had a full moon to light it, was disturbed here and there by the .sound of violins, for people wen> dancing in almost every hall in the city. The music and the tread of dancers, which sounded faintly in the street, were <lrowned at. times by the shouts of late revelers on their way home. But it was a pea(;eful night for the lirst of the ni-w year.  Those w ho have turned overa new leaf should stick lo it and help their friends to do likewise, that the year 1885 may he put down in history as one of prosperity, chri.stianity and good will.  footliohtTlames.  Foaoo 1m StUl.  The new year 1885 came in like a lion, very cool and blustering. The people on the streets had only time to exchange Happy New Year" and be otF to seek the seclusion of a "base-burner" or a hot lemonade. The morning was spent very quietly in this city, and had the appearance of Sunday rather than that of the glad New Year's day. Unfortunately snow failed to nut in an appearance, and the sporting people had to content themselves with "toasting the feet" at the gra e instead of driving down Berry street behind their thorougi ibreds. This was a source of great disappointment to a great many people who had counted on spending New Year's day in racing or enjoying the gay scenes on fashionable thoj^oughfares which snow bring!». In the afternoon things brightened up some, when the g.'ntlemen came out in their carriages to "make calls." The streets were well filled with people, as the sun appearing now and then had a tendency to bring people out of doors to enjoy the flrst breezes of '85, Not as many calls were made on Thursday last, and not as many ladies were at home to receive them as in former years. The cards this year were very plain, no fancy ones being presented. Plain printed cards seem to be the most fashionable.  The custom of calling is rapidly narrowing within sensible bounds, while that of sending cards is growing beyond all limits. A large proportion of those who stand loyally by the former custom are sturdy old fellows who have grown gray during the years they have observed it, and who do not now propose to give it up while there is a hospitable lady to greet them or a glass of egg nogg to be drank at their friends' houses. It is to be feared that a large portion of the degenerate young men went elsewhere yesterday than to the houses of friends, and drank something stronger than egg-nogg which was served out by polite men in white aprons. Of course we could not say this of all the Fort Wayne boys, but it is true that a number of them appeared on the streets yesterday with red eyes and swollen faces.  This is the beginning of a new year, and now that the holiday season s over, and the merchant has taken stock, he can pay his debts and escape the sherifl*, and he is at least glad that the doubt has been cleared away. Every one is doubt-lees happy to get back to business again and thankful if his purse is not quite empty, if his nerves are moderately steady, and his digestion is not altogether ruined. The fact that another unit has been added to the sum total of the yearn ioon loaei its novelty, and the man of  SKKTCII OK .I.WISU'S 1,IKE.  For the benefit of those who witnessed thea(;tingof Janish, at the .Academ^', last Wi'diusday evening, we give a short sketch of her ¡ife: "The Countess 'Arco, or as she is known professiona ly, Anto-niette Jani^h, was born in Vienna about thirty years ago. She has tol<l herself, in a litlle autobiography published in the Decameron of the lm|)(irial Theatre, at Vienna, how her girlhooc!, deprived of all the plea-iures that usually brighten witii j)ro!nises the unfoldini life of a yoiyig woman, was forced in npon itself by dreary surroun<iings; how, at the age oí sixteen, stio had grown with all her aspirations and extjuisite sensibilities in regard to her fuiure wiih mute de-pair. The world now knows that it is out oí such circuni.stances and such beginnings that the world gets its geniuses. It was at thi.s de.solate peiiod of iier life, when bursting with noble desires and palpitating witli an exquisite temperament for which faith showed no path in life, there came to her the friend of her needful hour. It was an aged lady who in her youth had been an actriss. This friend proved to be her angel and advised her to sudy for the stage, ' The mere idea,' says Janish, 'frightened me. How could I, with my ignorance of art, and with all ray perplexing troubles and cares, and my grinding poverty, hope to become an actress?' But together they studied and rehearsed and little by little the girl's mind opened to the glorious possibilities of art. It was during these humble studies and rehearsals that she was brought to the no ice of the late eminent German poet, Heinrich Laube, Her great talents, indisputable genius and striking beauty made a deep impression on the great literateur, and Herr Laube at once evinced the livliest interest in her future. Through his influence, she was soon after presented to the director of tlie Imperial Theatre at a private rehearsal. Struck by her genius and power be exclaimed: 'My child, heaven intended you for a great actress!' Herr Laube, now more than ever de lighted with his young protege, sent her to the distinguished Levinsky for iurtheJ dramatic instructions. That gentleman's remarks to the young histrionic aspirant when he first saw her are to-day to be heard in Vienna, Said he: 'Instruct you! If what Herr Laube says is true, yo" can instruct me,' Janish made her debut at the Imperial Theater when just seventeen years of .age. Her record at that theatre is one of continual and un-parallelled triumphs," Janish traveled and studied until she has now become one of the leading actresses of the day and is admired everywhere as she was at the Academy last Wednesday evening.

ForTiiK W'okí.tj: Whitewash for Bnildings and F  Nearly t-very one of your readers who owns his n sidence has some outbuildings or fences and generally both that would be greatly impi'oved by the use of a little lime whitewash. Nothing addi so nuKtii to the appearance of the bams and fences as a few dollars expended in this way. lOven the inside of the horse and cattle stalls, for the health of the animals, .should be carefully whitewashed every season. The best stock breeders do it twice a year.  There are many recipes published and any of them answer a very good purpose for a time. But the following formula may be relied upon as being at least eiiual to the best : Take a clean, tight barrel and slake in it one bushel of freshly burned lime, by covering it witli boiling water. After it is slaked add cold water enough to bring it to the consistency of cream or thick whitewash ; then dissolve in one pound of sulphate of 7.inc, also known by the common name of white vitrol, and add to the lime and water one quart of fine salt; stir well until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed ; this forms a pure white. If a cream color is desired, one-half ponnd of yellow ochre is added. To produce a fawn color add one pound of yellow ochre and one-fourth of a pound ' of Indian red. This compound owes its durability chiefly to the white vitrol which hardens and fixes the wash. The vkbole expense is very inconsiderable and I believe it to be much the best,  „ CoUNTRYMAW.  p. 8,—Glue is recommended in some recipes I have seen, which is w<4l enough for inside work, but it will not resist rain and is therefore not suitaUe for out door work.
