BOYS AND GIRLS AS MODELS. Blltos of Humanity IVno Pos e (is Sub- jects tot on. Artist's Pencil . There are severa l hundred person a in this cit y whose business i s t o si t aa models fo r artists. Young girl s who are particularly beautifu l ar e engaged every day i n tho year, and may ear n from §1.50 t o %% a day . They must keep stil l for hours, and often stand or kneel in tiresome positions while preserving their gracefulness, An artis t who has a hand- som e studio uptown was visited the othe r day by a reporter . He was found drawing designs fo r Christina s oards. A ismall blonde-haire d boy half naked -was sittin g in a small chai r made fast on a table, which i s called by painters a throne . His mother, a handsome woman of 2D years , stood near the throne with a pair of rein s tied round her waist, the othe r end o f which the little cherub held i n hi s hands. \What i s the purpos e of this arrange- ment?\ asked the reporter . \Don' t you see?\ said the artist. \We make the little fellow think that hi s mamma i s a hors e and that h o drives her. I have t o keep two things in mind: first, t > make the picture ; second, to amuse the boy . That Is not so eas y a task a s i t might seera. At first, per - haps, during the first sittin g I only play with the child o r ge t his mother or brother o r sister to pla y with him, until I sep some prott y o r natural movement or catch some strikin g expressio n o n his face,\ \He doe s not loo k particularly pleased at present; \ th o reporter remarked. \When I wis h to se e him' laugh,\ re- joine d the artist, \ I reques t hi s mother to caper around lik e a wil d horse . Some- time s sh e must make a Car horse of her- self, and sto p ever y moment and let him take up passengers , - and whenever she stops I get a good chance to put i n some good touch.\ \Don' t many of these artist s paiat oat of thei r heads, so to speak?\ \N o artist who does not paint o r draw fro m life, a s painting from model s i s called, ever give s hi s picture a loo k of reality. We may be able to paint a mar- ble floor from a small piec e o f marble, or a brocade dress from a yard o r two o f th e material, but even to do this w e must have made studie s of larg e surfaces o f marble when opportunity has offered, and we must spen d several days in studying the folds of drapery i n a dress worn by a livingniorlel before the specia l material of the brocade can be copie d into it, \ \How do you procure your models?\ \Ther e 13 no difficulty i n obtaining any material o r substance , fo r we can get at any time a piece of it. But the mos t im- portant of al l things tha t can be painted or drawn are the forms and face s of men and women and children ; and for that purpos e we must employ peopl e to pose for us . As a rule the models form a caste and ar e usuall y known t o each other.\ \How ol d aro your youngest models?\ \Some begin t o si t when they ar e mere babies. I have often wished that some ric h childre n could see how patient these little ones can b e whfii they understand that they are earning money to bu y food and clothes. There is a littl e girl who lives i n a tenement house on th o west side who i s ver y proud t o si t fo r mo. I make a chalk mark o n th e throne where her little feet shoul d go , and sh e will carefully keep o n tho mark. She. 1 - few minutes fo r vest at intui^aKjj^fo.v\'- eac h hour, and a long rest at clmniw time, but sh e will keep very quie t while I am working and not movo without leave. \ \What other expedient s do you resort to i n orde r to kee p the children models quiet?\ \Patience will accomplish almost at- tiring. I have a little boy who found a stuffed bird in my studio, and h e i s al - ways quit e happy fo r an hour if I let him play with it.\—New York Mail and Ex- press. A Sculptor's First IVorli. . Mrs .

The Poi'formor's ISofcopUvity of Sugges- tions from Hie Bjodjmn—Hypnotism. We believe, .then, that the true ex - planation of thought reading i s that the performer receive s impressions—partly muscular but largely nervous—through th e ordinary channel of the senses, hi s sensation s being unusually exalte d b y tlje state of entir e passivit y into which h e endeavors t o throw himself, This state of entire obliviousness t o all ex - terna l impression s except thos e con- nected with the experiment, and of eager receptivit y to-^f-^.s-^ggesfcions fro m the medium, i s closely analogous t o th e hypnotic state, in which we know the senses becom e extraordinarily exalted . A hypnotized subjec t has been known to have hi s olfactory nerve so abnorm- ally stimulated that he has detecte d a ring, among twelve,^Ji y the sens e of smell, and has foun d the owner of a glove, among sixty persons, by the same means, Th e muscular sens e i s also ren- dered inconceivably acute, as we see b y the perfect safet y aikl «ase with which the somnambulist (whose stats i s allied to that of hypnotism ) mounts roofs, tread s dizzy parapets , and performs other difficult nmsctttitr acts which h o would not eve n attempt in the waking state. If the thought-reader , in his efforts after entir o mental^bstraction, really throw s himself into a state bordering on hypnotism, i t i s certai n that he might receive sensory j-rnn'-nssions from the medium, of wiyaK^&ler ordinary cir- cumstances , he^-TOoMT' be entirely un - conscious. A slight^ tightening of the hand grasp, o r quickening of the breath- ing, or any simila r slight indication, woul d be sufficient t p guide him in hi s experiment. But i s th e mental stat e of th e thought-reader in any way compara- ble t o the hypnotic or mesmeric trance ? Som e thought-readers would unhesitat - ingly deny th e suggestion; but even the y are conscious of mere o r less severe mental tension and abstraction , while other performers seem to suffer from grea t nervous prostratio n afte r thei r ex - periments—a fac t whic h lends support t o th e idea that they ar e in a partiall y hypnotized state.—All the Year Round.

Thero ar c times when tho diversions oE the Englis h aristocrac y are on s o nlabor- ate a scale that no establishment , how- ever palatial, can receive, th o company o r provid e a theatre for tho entertain r ment. Tiie park itself must b e the re - ception-room, tho entire landscap e bo * conjes tho pleasur e ground, an d hal f a county is include d in the arena of a day's amusement. When th o hounds meet a.t a great mansion there i s usually , a hunt breakfast, and the scarlet coats , and dazzling breeche s of the men, the, riding hats and habits of thovromen^ make the long corridor s and lofty stair - ways a s brilliant with colo r and costumo a s the scener y of a play. No t onl y tho \house party,\ a s i t i s called, bu t crowds of guests from the neighborhood , come in to the late breakfast, which i s more, sumptuous, but hardly more forma l than usual . Tho lawn i s gay with a hundred equi - pages of ever y sizo and form and even color, som e waiting fo r thei r owners o r driver s from the house, othors filled with, company who'decline to alight, prefer- ring toremainlookers-on, yet themselves forming a part oE the spectacle. Tho horse s and vehicles of the farmer s and middle-class peopl e wait further off, fo r all English men and -tfonaen ar e inter - este d i n a hunt, and free to attend the , meet o r follow th e hounds, Spirite d horse s ar o led. about i n front of the house by careful grooms, but tho hounds are just i n sigh t in a hollow -without the) home park gates , restiv e • i n th o leash, and requiring al l the attention of the^ huntsman and hi s satellites. There is always a long delay, and sometimes i t i s high noon before the gay crowd comes ou t on the terrace o r through tho _ porch . Then there i s a bustle, and numerous yisit s are paid t o the carriages, recognition s exchanged , orders given. Servants hurry t o and fr o among th o company, tho maids with the> glove s and whips and veils of thoir mis- tresses, Valets and f ootmen, t o buckle tho spurs and faste n th o stirrups, of thoir masters. At las t every ons i s mounted, tho carriages are full and mov e off to, • get a vie w of tho start, a crow d of th o humbler sort following afoot. A labore r or a servant often trudges alon g tho road for many a mile, and , knoyrin g th o coun - try and th e covert s well, i s sometime s i n at tho death before the best mounted horseman of them all. When th e hounds are released- tiie, pack scatters fo r a moment, bu t comes together again , and then move s slowl y at first, noso to th e ground, snuffing for, the scent, while th e horsemen follow leisurely a s yet , a novice taking a fenc e perhaps t o show hi s pluck, but th e more, experience d avoidin g hedges an d gates till there is neod. Th e landscap e now i s dotted with color, re d and whit e gleam- ing agains t the background of green, and tho most Englis h picture' of all , English life i s sprea d out to view . Th e pageant moves off i n the distance , mounts a hill- side, and disappears over tho summit , o r fade s and melts a:yay into forest aru.\. glade s unti l the gay vision-is gone.— Adam Badeau' s Letter . __ A Britis h Kural OflUUnl. A laborin g man, illiterat e an d poverty- Btricken, sought th e suffrages of hi s fel- low rate-payer s a s a people' s candidat o for a seat o n tho local educationa l parlia - ment. By a freak of fortunn in the, shapo of th e cumulative voto h o was elected. Th e honor proved insufficient to alln y hi s thirs t for fame anil fo r the , consciou s exercise of authority . He must needs conduct an examination o n the following lines: \Now; 3-011 lads, before you goes any farther \vilh the reading of this chapter , let mo just see i f you knews tho meanm'- of the word s you have read. It says something here about 'gross' darkness.'- Now, what is that? What i s gross dark- ness.\ A chorus of youthfu l voices—some nol; without an inflection of scor n a t the in- sult to thei r intelligence convoyed in the , putting of s o simpl e a query—make an- swer, \Grea t darkness , sir. \ The inquisito r shakes hi s hea d tri - umphatly. \No-o \ h e says , \no t exactly. What's darkness , boys. \ The unexpected and bewilderin g rebuff seems to have inauguvated a tomporai-y reign of silence. When - the forward path discloses mysterious pitfalls it in, well t o walk .with circumspection . But at las t a solitary pipin g trebl e venture s a highly original definition, \Please , Bir, it' s what there i s after tho , sun sets and before th o lamps are lit. \ \Well , yes\—as if condescendingly considering—\you'r e right. Now , what's , a gross?\ The response come s with grea t volume , and more assurance . This, a t least, is; solid ground of mathematical fact. \Twelve dozen, sir. \ \And how many i s that?\ \A hundred and forty-four, sir. \ \Bight again. Now listen, yo u lads, 'Gros s darkness ' is darkness 144 times a s great a s that which the scholar over against th e middle dealt yonder described for us. Don' t you forge t what gross . darkness i s i n future.\—Cassell's Maga- zine . Ammmim PAYS. M«als in Mnslaml . — - The morning lasts'.till 3 o'clock, and lunch is as informal as breakfast. The men ai-e still i n th o coi-ers, o r if soma have returned they come to .table in their shootin g boots, and boast-of their achievements. Tho meal i s a plain din- ner; al l the dishes ar e set o n tlio table at once, and i t i s a rigid and intolerable etiquett e that nobody shall hav e a nap- kin. The childre n of the family aro ofte n allowed to b o present , an d if tho . party i s not very large, they sometimes carve fo r the guests, that they may learn betime s the hospitabl e accomplish - ments of after life. Sometimes gov- ernesses and tutors ar p seen at this hour, the latter often very' accomplishe d and agreeable people; hut I never know them in appear at dinner, as they do i n novels, and make love to tlio young ladies.— Adam Badeau' s Letter . Tlio Gulf Stream' s Influence It i s well understoo d that Great Britain^ and other part s of northern Europ e owe much to the warming influence of tho gul f stream. The extent of the effect has been give n in the calculations of Dr. James Croll, who has found tha t tho' amount of heat conveye d northward in the Atlantic by this stream i s equivalen t to 77,4.70,850,000,000,000,000 foot-pounds of energy a day , w.lu,eh i s equal to all tho heat received b y 1,56,0,93.) squar e miles at the equator , and more heat than is, conveyed b y all the ai r currents . Tho heat of the Arcti c seas and nort h Afcr lantic would bo diminishe d that much by the stoppag e o r division of th e grea ^ ocean river,—Bosto n Budget.
