INeverthcless, there grew upagaia xocie- .tiesof educated men, who debatedones- tlons of reiicion and politics in abbild, Itee-tbinfeing manner. In tte society of which Aleiander a brilliant but vain and arrocrant littera- teur of distinguished family, and Jlithel Bsfraain, an inttuectual lieutenaor.of artillery, were the principal ornnmeah, the principles of Hegel's _ philossphy, were discussed with animation and per- tinacity. An orditary philosopher micht not be able to see fn Hegel the rudiments of great political dogmas, but the case was different" when Hegel's ah- slrass speculations fell into Ihe hands of ambitious, young, and restless politicians like Tie cliqncwiicb recognised Bskuoin as their leader.

Yet thev could not singe any or all of the heads of the monster Nihilism. They sought to be successful by repressing the little liberty the press had left it 31.

Persons with cold feet larely sleep well, especially women; yet the number troubledjis very considerable. We now know that if the blood supply to the brain be kept up, sleep is impossible. An old theologian, when weary and sleepy with much writ- ing, found that he could keep his brain active by immersing his feet ia cold water. The was that the cold drove tlieblood from the feet to the head. Xpw, what this old gentleman accom- plished by design is secured for many persons much, against their wiJJ. Cold feet are the bane of many women. Tight boots keep up a bloodless condi- tion o{ the feet in the day, and in many woaien there is no subsequent dilation of the blood-vessels whea the "boots are taken off. These women come in from a walk, and their, Srst act is to put their feet by the fire to most effect- ive plan possible of cnltivatingchilblains. At night Ihey put their feet to the Sre perhaps, carry c hot iron or brick wiih them to bed. Bat it is all of no. use; their feet still remain cold. How (okeep their feet warm is the great o! life wiih cold tiEsftDT. The effective plan is not Tery attractive at first; sight- to many mindi It consists in first driving the blood-ves- sels into contraction, .after .which eecoadary dilation -.follows.: See the EnowbaDer's hands. Toe first contract of the snow makes the hands terribly cold, for the small arteries are driven thereby into firm contraction, and ihe nerve-endings of the finger-lips feel the low temperature very keenly. :But as the snow-bailer perseveres his hands commence to glow.'-The have become secondarily dilated, and the rash of warm- arterial blood is felt s- greeably by the peripheral aerre endings. This is Ibe plan to adopt with cold feet: They should be dipped in cold water for a brief period; often just to imnerse them, aad no more, is sufficient. -Then they should be rubbed wiih a pair of., bsir flesh-cloves or rongh TorkUh towel till they plow, immediately before getting iiito bed. After this, a hot water Dottle will be successful enough in maintaining the temperature of the feet, thongb, without this preliminary, it is impossible to do so. as the plan at first thought may it will, .beyond doubt, be found efficient, and those that haveonce fairiy tried it; will continue it, and find that they haye put an end to their bad nights aad feet Pills, potions, lozenges, "night- all narcotics, fail to enable thesuf- fererto woo sleep successfully. Get. rid of the cold feet, and then sleep wfl come' of itself. Bad drinking water brings a man to hisTricr quicker than "anything else. J A MATTER OF IMPORT.VXCH. The manner of holding the opera glass (says a French journal) is a point to be studied, and adapted to the style of beauty. A woman who has nat arms will hold the glass with both hands; a woman who has fine hands will take oil her gloves; a woman who has a long neck wiil recline back on her chair, ancl from lime to time let the glass rest agaiast her chin.

A fashionable dressmaker tell the Cin- cinnati Enquirer that the chief trouble with -women's forms is their irregularity. "The number whose two sides do not correspoad is wonderful. Sometimes one shoulder is higher than the other, sometimes one hipls bigger, and some- times the whole figure is awry, "Wo- men's dress, in tiis era of clinging .gar- ments, reveals every imperfection, un- less art comes to nature's lielp." Pads are often sufficient to produce symmetry, according to this espert, but siooping'is something that the dressmaker's art cannot remedy. "It is a common defect in American she says.

A "Washinston letter says: "The ab- surdilies of Washington etiquette in the matter of first calls can not be better illustrated than by mentioning how 3Irs. Elaine and Mrs. Sherman have several limes reversed tlieir positions vrith re- spect to who should make the first call on the other.

"DICKEXS'S PRISONER." the A ConTict Immortalized ia "American fpafladelpbli Cor. X. T. Trtbuaii For several years I have been aa oc- casional Sabbath visitor at the Eastern Penitentiary to assist ihe.chaplaia ia con- ducting the religions services. The ar- ranKements for preaching to the prison- ers in this institution arc decidedly unique. They namber at present about Visitors are not allowed to see them or to converse with them, and the services mast be conducted so as cot to violate the prison discipline. The chap- lain has managed to enlist ihe services of a sufficient number of preachers and singers to conduct the worship every SafibatU in sis or eight places designat- ed. Each preacher addresses about 200 convicts. They caS all hear him and usite in ths singing, but they caanol see him. Bef ore Dicktas wrote his "Ameri- can Soles" he the Eastern Peni- tentiary, and his comments on the "soli- system" have prejudiced maay thousand persons against the Pennsylva- nia method of dealing with criminals. Among tie cases that came under his own observation was the following. I quole his "In another cell was a German sen- tenced to five years" imprisonment for larceny, two of which had expired. With colors procared in the same man- ner he Iiad painted every inch of the walls and ceiling quite beautifully. He had laid onl the few feet of ground ba- hind with exquisite neatness, and had made a little bed in the centre that look- ed by tBe by like a .crave.
