POVERTY is nothing disgraceful for a man to confess.
MOST of the nnhapplness in this life comes from not know-ig the tme value of things. Tna everlasting longing for something we have not, ought to satisfy ns that there are great things In store for us.
TnnsT not him that hath once broken faith.
IT takes two to mako a quarrel and two to keep it going; it only needs one to end it.
TiiE world would be more hnppy, and the mass of people In it just as wise, if tbey would whistle more and argue less.

2.—Tlio first occasion on which a state ooach was ever used by a sovereign of England was when Queen Elizabeth went to open Parliament on tho 2nd of April, 157L It was the only vehicle in tho procession, tho Lord Keeper, and the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, all attending on horseback. It was drawn by two palfreys, which were decked with trappings of crimson velvet; and, according to an old authority, the name of the driver was William Doonen, a Dutchman, who thus became uie first state conch man.
11.—Palm Sunday takes its nmme from the ancient custom of placing palm branches, or substitutes therefore, on altars, and carrying thorn In procession, in commemoration of the palms strewed before Christ on Hia triumphal entry Into Jerusalem. The custom was, and is, olmerved throughout tho whole Catholic world. In England, branches and sprigs of willow or sallow, with the catkins on them, have often been made to do duty as palms.
13.—Miss Hawkins, in her " Anec-dotes," relates of Handel that, being asked about his ideas and feelings when composing the ' Hallelujah Chorus," he replied,"! did think 1 did see all heaven before me, and the great God Himself."
He would frequently burst into tears while writing, and Is said to have been found by a visitor sobbing uncontrollably when In the act of setting the words "He was despised." Shield tells ns "that his servant, who brought his coffcein the morning, often stood in silent astonishment to see his master's tears mixing In the Ink, as he penned his divine notes."
Tbe story of Handel repeatedly leaving his guests at the dlnner-rable with the exclamation," I have one taught I" and repairing to another room to regale himself privately, ever and anon, with draughts of champagne from a dozen which he had received as a present, may probably bo dismissed as unworthy of serious belief, opposed as it Is to the genial and hearty disposition of the masicr, who would not be likely to keep to himself the enjoyment of any delicacy, especially when friends were dining at his table.
That he was a large eater Is highly probable. If we consider the heavy amouut of both mental and bodily fatigue that he constantly endnred, and which must have made a proportionate supply of food necessary, to keep up his health and energy to the normal pitch. When he became blind, he grew depressed and low-spirited, his appetite failed, and he nut long after died.
