Igpiioratiro of IVcftiX Tilings.
A few years ago it suddrnly Iw-anw the
stylo to possess seme acquaintance with mat-A-ra
of commonplace utility. Ynim women
ot fashion deserte I the dancing class for tl o
cooking school, and plain sowing oceupisd
much attention i:i Beacon street boudoirs.
Housewifery in all its branches wasdi:.iinctly
lo fromage, as one might say, and an object
for rivalry was fount ia tho !;i!:ing of bread
or the darning of shocks. But now all this is
changed. No longer is it consistent with
highly educated i Toiriety to have I'uy not ion
whatever regarding subjects of the kind.
The ''proper cajicr," as vulgar folks would
express it, is to profess absolute ignorance of
every blessed thing thut is of material use.
''I'm sure I could not cook a i.lire of toast
to wive my life," says this jvar's finishing
maiden. "It must be awfully nice to know
about such things, but I have never hail a
chance to learn. I think if I wore shut up in
a kitchen with tho stock of a provision shop.
I should certainly starve to death. I would
rather do so, anyway, than bother tli'j raw
meat and vegetables."
One girl with whom I went driving tho
other day kept mo waiting half an hour be
cause she could not ii:id a suitable pair of
gloves. lho had a whole drawer full, sho
told mo, but every one lacked a I ntton, and
she did not know how to sew the missing
fastening on. Thi.-; same young woman, I
understand, employs the services of a maid
who is actually obliged to put on her mis
tress' shoos and stockings. To such a point
has fashionable hcl;;Jcs;:oss arrived. I must
confess I do not envy the husband who
secures one of those highly ornamental crea
tures for a partner hi life's carer, and troubles.

The Kr:tnf riii of Tyrol.
The only habitation higher than the Ge
patsch house is a chalet of a w.nnerin. Per
haps you are inquisition enou;-h to ask who
or what a semiorin is. lit this instance she is
as buxom and comely a girl as you may find
in all Tyrol. Her age is about she has fed
on the milk from her ninety-f our cows and on
tho butter and ch'vso she makes in the chalet
until her cheeks are as mvv as the morning
sun. That she is no languorous and voluptu
ous maid is certain, for she must each day
milk twice her near live score of cows and
goats, keep the fire buriiing, skim thirty" tubs
of miik, churn the cren.m, make the cheese
and reckon out her small account so that at
the end of the season each villager may know
what proportion of the product is lib;. She,
perhaps, has a devoted lover from the lower
valley, who will come and assist her; lind a
lost goat or a stray cow in return for an en
couraging smile. She is not altogether differ
ent from others of her sex, for before allow
ing us to photograph herself and chalet she
insisted upon dofihig her milking Iro:-s and
donning one which she kept for grar.d ami
festive occasions. Cor. Kew York Mail and
Senator Sumner in licit Weather.
It was seldom t he case that the Senator
left "Washington wkc:i the session closed. Ho
frequently remained to bring up tho arrears
of business and to prepare for tho coming
congress. Thus he was often caught in tho
city by the hot weather. "When the temper
ature was in the nineties, he stripped to his
work. His costume at his desk would be
white trousers, shirt, and socks with slippers;
and as he wore a black tie and no braces, and
as his collar and cui"s were a part of his
shirt, he did not appear inappropriately
dressed. He felt the heat keenly; but us he
lerspired freely it did not affect his health.
It was curious to note the gradual wilting of
his clothes. His collar would soon seem to lie
hung over his cravat to dry. His back after
a while would lock as if it had been pelted
with wet sponges, and his white ducks as if
they had been spattered by a garden hose.
So by noon he had to make a complete change
of clothes, and before dinner he had, of
course, to make another. Arnold barer es

Not So Easily KilUnl.
John Buckley, of ileriden, Conn., caught
a snapping turtle and took it to the central
telephone oflice, v. here he proposed killing it
with electricity. Ho let the turtle snap at
one end of a wire, put another wire beneath
its shell, and turned on the full current. He
avers that he "heard the current go through
it, making a noise liko a small planing ma
chine," and he left the turtle for dead. The
next morning he found the turtle walking
around and snapping at wires, as though it
wanted another taste of the current. Xw
Magicians in South America.
"The greatest place for jugglers and ma
gicians is South America," replied the ma
gician. "A prestidigitator went to Rio Ja
neiro last j'ear, and in a four weeks' engage
ment made 4vl5,Ouii. The veneration with
'which they are held in some jiarts of Brazil
and other South American countries is amus
ing. The ignorant classes follow them in
crowds when they appear on the streets, the
half breed negroes especially. They fancy
every ill that liappens to them during tho
time the mag'eiaus are there is due to them,
and it is necessary for them to have ioiiee
protection. I find it more proliiable to manu
facture than to travel and irive exhibitions."
