Its hold is frail, its date is brief,

The tree mourn its fallen leaf.
And Antunvn words bewail its bloom.

A PACK OF CARDS.
A nobleman who kept a great number
of servants, reposed confidence in one of
them, which excited a jealousy in the
others, who, in order to prejudice their
master against him, accused him of being
a notorious gamester. Jack waa called up
and closely interrogated ; tint be denied
the fact, at tbe same time declaring tbat
be never played a card in bis life. To be
more fully convinced, the gentleman or
dercd him to be searched, when behold :
a pack of cards was found iu his pocket.
Highly incensed at Jack's want of vera
city, the nobleman demanded, in a rage,
how he dared to persist in ah untruth.
"My lord," replied be, "I certainly do
not know the meaning of a card ; the bun
die in my pocket is my almanac 1"
Your almanac, indeed ; then I desire
that you will prove it."
"Well, sir, I will begin : There arc
four suits in the pack that intimate the
four quarters in the year ; as there are
thirteen cards in a suit, so there are thir

same number of lunations; the twelve signs
of the zodiac through which the san steer

year ; these multiplied by twenty-four and

your lordship's permission, I will prove it

ganized and watery, their muscles tmall
and flabby, and the force and functions of
their bodies, as a whole, run low to the
scale of life. A spurious fullness isjoften
seen in the outline daring girlhood, which
usually melts like snow under an April
sun whenever the endurance is put to the j
test, as in performing the functions of a t
mother. Tho change in appearance! from
the maiden of ono year to the mother cf
the next is often so striking and enduring
that it is difficult to believe that we are
looking on tbe same person. The round,
pleasing shape is prematurely displaced
by a pinched angularity, and an untmt1y
and an unseemly appearance of s-ge. .
Travelers from other countries, wbojhave
had an extctudve means for observation
and comparison, have remarked upon the
great beauty ot American women aaa tne
early life at which it is lost. Somcj have
ascribed this to the climate ; but more in
telligent observers agree that it is; a hot
house enervating mode of life. English
ladies of rank, who, by tbe way, arf cele
brated for keeping their beauty even to a
ripe old age, think nothing of walking
bait a dozcu miles at a Unit ; while Ameri
can ladies would think such a thing "per

if you strike your hand over that, .and it
