pretend to himself that he may stint the

and wife tormentings aro too horrible to be

The furniture, of city houses especially.
often costly enough, was almost without ex
ception dreadful. Tho carpets, of enormous
patterns and discordant colors and the fur
niture of excessively varnished rosewood, or
some like material, and always in "sets,"
were things to shudder at. The costumes of
the women were in keeping with tho houses.
Not only did the ladies wear long trousers of
some white material, that came so low that it
was impossible for the wearers to walk with
out getting them in dust or rnirc, but the
smallest girl child was rigged out in the
same preposterous garments, it being thought
fully immoral for a tot of 6 to exiiose her
Tho ladies' boots, made usually of cloth,
were heclless, laced at tho side, and came
not quite to the ankle bone; while the one
button gloves left the wrist entirely bare.

the back of the head the lovelier, many even

and a girl with sunny tresses was looked
uiKinos hideous, was taunted as a "red head,"
and generally used a k-ad comb or some wash
to make her golden tresses conform as nearly
as possible to the prevailing standard.
All women plastered their hair in a hard,
flat mass tight to the tkull, with bandoline or
some other mucilaginous substance, as low
down as tho ears, and then had it twisted in
stiff, wire liko spiruls, or puffed out like
bunders. Boston Herald.
If you would keep your face and hands
unwrinkled, use tepid water; very hot or
cold water is injurious. Also avoid burying
the face in a soft pillow at night, which
always produces wrinkles around the eyes.
Basements should never be constructed
without an air space between the floor and
the earth. If the floor i& laid directly on the
ground it is sure to be damp. Sub cellars
for this reason alone are very desirable.
Type rubbing is one of the best paying in
dustries for women. The work consists of
rubbing tbe type after it is cast 'and to tbe
point of polishing, which is done by men.

A slice of raw onion well rubbed over the

Keeping I'p Appearances.
Some hypocrisy there may be in keeping
up appearances. The lost sacrifices maybe
made to keep up the parlor with a show of
well doing, while the kitchen may be a pig
pen. A tasteful, rather expensive, cloak or
gown may hide uncloan and tattered cloth
ing beneath. An improvident family man
ages to maintain a carriage with some show
before the community, while the debts of the
family would more than eat up its posses
sions if some way were not devised to evade
tho sheriff. Grocers and other merchants
are laid under contribution to help maintain
families beyond their actual means. The
man who piles up firewood will take pains to
place the sticks with the sawed etires out
ward, that the front surface of the pile may
arpear well. And so it goes throughout life.
This may all be hypocrisy, in great or email
de-Tree: but. after oil. it means something
deeper. People do not love to be hypocrites.
unless we except the few Uriah Heeps. There
is co amusement in deceiving anybody but
yourself for the sake of deceit alone. Be
neath all this are more ultimate actuating mo
tives. Respectability aimed at, because it
is a good thing; well doing is assumed be
cause it is desirable. The handsomest gar
ment is placed in sight because beauty is one
of the great additions to modern life. 'As
same a virtus if you have it not,"Baid Ilani-
let. So, in our age. when well doing is not
universal, when elegance and beauty and
luxury are not common to all, their owner
ship is pretended; and they will continue to
be assumed until that day when we shall all
give up the pursuit of ideals, or be honestly
satisfied with our e Joria to attain them.
Penny Wisdom and Pound Foolishness.
Economy only ceases to be admirable when
it goes too far and verges on stinginess, and
then it is very apt to defeat its own desires.
The boarding house keeper who doles out
two towels and two napkins a week spends
more than she economizes. Tbe ljnen loses
more by the hard scrubbing it must sustain
to be made clean than is saved in laundry
work by the reduction of tbe number cf
Common sense is tho measure by which
economy must be conducted. The guarding
against unnecessary wear and tear, the mend-
ing of tiny holes and worn places as soon as
they are perceptible, tho stitch in time thai
saves nine, tbe changing about of rugs that
they may wear evenly, the making over of
old clothes, the skillful disposition of rem
nants, the watching for such little leaks as
the throwing away of soup stock or the neg
lect to sift the ashes all this attention to ap
parent trivialities only becomes misplaced
when it withdraws tbe mind from higher ob
jects, and binds it down to a mechanical
round that leaves . room for nothing but
petty details. Economy must appear in not
wasting nerve force and brain tissue for in
adequate cause as well as in the avoidance of
material extravagance. Christine Teihuno
Uerrick in Harper's Bazar.
Nightcaps as an article of dress, except in
antiquated farces and amatoiir theatricals,
have gono out of fashion. Their universal
use by our forefathers and foremothers may,
lerhaps, be safely attributed to the fact that
in the good old times sleeping apartments
were uncommonly draughty. Ill fitting win
dow sashes, large chimneys and antediluvian
doors let in so much air that there was very
good reason for protecting the head from the
consequences of too much ventilation. Now
adays the headgear appropriate for night use
has become obsolute, so that it will cause no
puinful shock when tho public are informed
by the voice of medical authority that the
use of nightcaps is actually ipjurious. MA
man," wo are told, "might as well sleep in
his boots as in a cap." We are not aware
that even if a person did commit the former
enormity any dreadful effects on his health
would infallibly follow, whatever might be
the results to his bed linen. Still, medical
science is pretty safe in running a tilt against
nightcaps, for the simplo reason that it is
hurJly anybody's interest to defend them.
A Girl's Education.
I think a girl's education begins in the
cradle. Who can say how early she discerns
what she has no speech to utter sees, for in
stance, whether tho people around her are
self controlled, patient and sweet, or tho sad
reverse) I wonder how many months old a
girl must bo before she would know whether
or not she was treated capriciously whether
she was refused a thing when mamma was in
one humor and granted the same thing when
mamma was in another humor. And do you
think your little maid of 3 or 4 foils to
notice what cro your chief interests in life,
whether you are most eager about your
clothes or your books or your housekeeping?
Docs she not perceive whether the poor rela
tion who comes to visit you is welcomed as
warmly ns is Sirs. Cronsus, who drives to
yoji' door with her well appointed carriage?
In short, though the little damsel has no
power to reason, she has keen eyes to sec, and
your own attitude toward lue and lues
demands will bo educating her, whether you
arc aware of it or cot, even from her cradle.
Louise Chandler Moulton in Chicago
From Shoulder to Elbow.
'I wonder," writes a fashionable milliner.
"whether the confirmed wearer of the con
ventional sleeveless ball dress ever reflects on
the fact that arms which look white early in
tho evening get crimson with exercise? From
the shoulder to the elbow is a most treacher
ous part of a woman's arm. With heat it
sometimes turns as crimson as her checli3. It
is not beautiful then, particularly when she
is dressed in white. This only happens with
plump beauties; with a slender woman that
part of the arm is generally much too thin.

She Saw the Point.
"That lady," said a Woodward avenue
merchant, pointing to a woman who bad
traded about $12 worth in ten minutes and
was going out, "used to be one of my worst
callers. She'd come in almost daily, bother
four or five clerks for two hours, and go out
without buying a cent's worth."
"How did you cure herf
"Well, I spoke to her in an off hand way
one day, and she fired up and said that as
long as I kept clerks it was my business to
be bothered, Next day I selected ten of the
girl clerks, posted 'em as to what to say, and
they rung her door bell at intervals of an
hour all day and inquired if she wanted a
nurse girl. She didn't, and told them so
pleasantly enough until the tenth one came.
Then she said)

Woman as an Employe.
When a woman assorts that she does ex
actly as much as a inan, and does it just as
well, that is her side of the ease. Perhaps
the employer, who knows just what the man
does, and what the woman does, would be of
a different opinion. Tho trouble seems to be
in this, that a woman will do just what she
s expected to do, in the regular routine of
her employment, and do it well, but that she
is not willing to be called on fur extra serv
ices outside of her regular employment,
whereas a man expects to do as he is told,
whuther it agrees with his preconceived
notions of what his duties were to be or not.

A Pretty Girl's Eyes.
Although nonsense may be common in
ultra fashionable circles, it is nevertheless
often unique. At a recent reception one fair
maiden remained persistently seated while
the other girls walked about a great deal and
struck pretty toses while in conversation
with the gentlemen. Somebody asked why
this attractive creature remained in bcr
"Because she doesn't feel like standing,"
was the reply.
"Oh, then she is lame.
"No, no. She has upward eyes,"
'iAnd what are they!"
"fThy, she has discovered that her eyes
are exceedingly handsome wbsn wide open
and looked down into, but when the observer
is on a level with them they are not half so
charming. It seems to be a peculiarity of
her orbs. So she sits down all the while
when on exhibition, so that the fellows as
they stand before her in conversation must
gaze down into her face, and in so doing en
counter her eyes at their best." New York
