I he legal device adopted by the Virginia Legislature to rcpVni.-h the State treasury by taiing whisky and beer at so much per drink, the number of drinks sold to be ascertained by the use of a bell-punch, is a subject for merriment na well as denunciation. A Virginia paper say6 “ it ’’ is unconstitutional. Now whether the pronoun stands for the phrase “ drinking whisky or beer.’’ and “ unconstitutional " means that the ase of either is hartful to the health of tLe imbiber ; or whether the said pronoun “ it " represents the tax. and “ unconstitutional " means that it is in violation of the organic law of the Mother of Presidents, we cannot determine. But a Virginia friend at oar elbow •ars that in either cane, the beD-panch is unnecessary, as the retail liquor trade down there is on “ tick," and that the chalk-marks on the bardier will as truly represent the camber of drinks sold as will any bell punch.

In so far as it may be within the con-stitati mal power of Congress or of State legislatures to restrain the great monopolies of the country from impositions upon the people, there should be neither delay not hesitancy in doing it The Granger movement, having for it* immediate object the protection of the lent idea of fixing upon a certain day farmer from the onorou9 exaction* of on which all are lo unite in burning, is railroad companies, has not been a suc-erroneous, as it is imp <es-ih!c to tell what cess.

The common practice of throwing creasy ratrs in corners and in wooden boxes, and using saw dust on floors, in place of sand, in places where oils are continually spilling, is very reprehensible, as many fires have occurred From spontaneous combustion From this cause; not only in the above named places, but also in dwelling'*, where creasy rags have been thrown in cupboards, under step*, and in other ont-of-the-way places Another most fruitful causo of fires is the placing of ashes in wooden boxes, barrels, and on wooden floors When notified by che Fire Wardens, the universal teply is, “ we are careful and rake up our ashes when they are cold." Little dreaming that ashes will retain live coals for a long while, and, moreover, will heat themselves. Medical Ski IL A good but we know not how reliable a story, is related of a venerable doctor. It was one of his rules never to have anything wasted, and, therefore if any prescription remained after the patient had died or recovered, lie would might be multiplied from every variety of professions.

A physician says that the cry for rest has always been louder than theory for food. Not that it io more important, but it is often harder to obtain. The best rest conics from sound sleep. Of two men or women, otherwise equal, the one who sleeps the better wilt be the more healthy and efficient. Sleep will do much to cure irritability of tem-pjr, peevishness and uneasiness. It will restore vigor to an overworked braiu It will build up and make strong a weak body. It will cure a headache. It will cure a broken spirit. It will cure sorrow. Indeed we might make a long list of nervous and other maladies that sleep will cure. The cure of sleeplessness requires a clean, good bed. Buffi-' cient exercise to promote weariness, pleasant occupation, good air, and not too warm a room ; a clear conscience, and avoidance of stimulants and narcotics For those who are overworked, haggard, nervous, who ^ass sleepless nights, we commend the adoption of such habits as will secure sleep ; otherwise life will he shorf, aud what there is of it sadly imperfect. The drudgery of the school room may drive the schoolmistresses of England and Wisconsin into insanity aud suicide, but the Canadian teachers thrive and grow fat on it. One of the big school boys of the Dominion asked his teacher one night if he could escort her from singing school, but she politely declined the offer. He neglected his studies, ran away from school, and put pins into his school mates. She finally lost patience and gave him a flogging. The boy told his father that the fair one whom he had courted had turned and whipped him* The indignant pareul sued the teacher and obtained a judgment of $3 50, which she paid. The next morning she remarked to her scholars :    “    I have whipped a booby soundly, which pleasure cost only three dollars and a half. Now, if any others of my scholars are inclined to imitate him, they will have the kindness to step fprward, receive the money and the flagging, and tjben we will go on with our studies. I am here to instruct you. not to be courted.” Nervousness will never kill off so plucky a schoolmistress There is some help for a ti the defects of fortune ; for if a man cannot attain to the length of his wishes, he may have bis remedy by cutting them shorted. ^   ___ ftsA deaf mute education, as he ha* a pretty j couldn’t go any further."
