Tho Art Amateur

ideal portrait for oil painting, said to
greatly resemble the famous American
beauty, Miss Chamberlain. Other
designs are a child's head, snow balls
and hcpatlca for china painting; doilies
and a portfolio cover for embroidery;
marigolds for wood-carving, and. some
charming figures for Valentino cards
and sketching on linen. . Ulyscc Butin,
a capital French painter of fishermen,
receives biographical notice, and inter

Specially attractive features .are the

Wake Forest Seml-Centennial.
Rev. W, L. Poteat writes as follows:
"The exercises of Wake Forest In
stitute" wero opened on the -first Mon
day in February. 1831. It has been
determined to celebrate this interesting
and important event by the suspension
of college work and by appropriate
public addresses at the college, Monday,
February 4, 1881. These fifty years
have been, for the most part, years of
struggle, but no less of permanent ad
vancement, and, seen in the light of
this development, the humble begin
nings of half a century ago are worthy
of the honor wo propose to put upon
them. The semi centennial exercises
will begin at 11 a. m., February 4th.
You have already published the names
of the gentlemen who are expected to
take part. Tho programme speaks for
itself, and, if it will not draw together a
large number of the friends ot the
college, we hope that the otherwise in
(t resting occasion will."

Tho New Standard.
The Revised Code,-has changed the
standard of weights and measures. For
the benefit of our readers we publish
the law relating to them which it wil
be well for our farmers and merchants
to copy into their memorandums:.

shall be sixty pounds, of rice forty four
pounds, of rye, fifty six pounds, of
Indian corn Jiity pounds, of buckwheat
fifty pounds, barley forty eight: pounds.
of oats thirty pounds : of flax seed fiftv
five pounds, of clover seed sixty four
pounds, peas fifty pouuds, ot corn meal
forty six pounds, and u any person
shall take any greater quantity by
weight, for one bushel of the several
articles mentioned in this section than
the weight prescribed, he shall forfeit
and pay the sum of twenty dollars to
any Dcrson who may sue lor the same.
