WOMAN AND' HOME.
WHAT SHOULD BE MAN'S SHARE
' IN GOOD HOUSEKEEPING.
fh Tyranny of the Baby Growing Up
In Corset American and European
Vol or To Remove Freckle Artificial
ity Domestic Vnhapvlnee.
If wo may for the time extend the meaning
of tbo word housekeeping ao that it shall in
clude the entire care of the home, it is clear
that the man's share In it ought to be the
Leavier. Perhaps most men wouM bo in
clined to say that as a matter of fact it is
heavier. As a rulo the man has to earn the
money to l.uy and furnish the home, and to
procure the fowl, clothing and fuel fcr the
family ; the woman's part is to keep the bouse,
prepare tho food, make and repair the cloth
ing, and burn tho fuel. The husband is the
provider; the wife, the dispenser, the stew
ard. AVe shall leave quite out of account in
this discussion the exceptional cases in which
Inherited or suddenly acquired riches render
personal labor for either man or woman un
Lappily unnecessary. For mankind at large
tho apostlo'a rulo still holds good: "If a
ffmrt will not work neither shall he eat."
We do not Iwlieve that the labor of merely
earning tho money necessary to maintain the
Lome is commensurate with the labor nerea
sary to tho proper expenditure of the money,
and tho proper care of the things purchased
Even if the husband, therefore, were to turn
over to the wife all his earnings on condition
that she r.ttend to the entire management of
the homo, ho would have tho better of tho
lie would have tho advantage, first, in tho
number of hours of labor. Suppose lie is a
day laborer, his Lours are eight or ten.
Leaving homo after a breakfast, which ho
owes to a previous hour's lalor on tho part of
Lis wife, ho goes to his work, leaving his wife
at hers, and when he roturns for dinner or
upper ho finds her still busy; and after sup
per, while ho smokes his pipe or steps out to
pans the news with a neighbor, his wife must
-pend another hour in putting away the
dishes, attending to tho children's clothing,
and making sundry preparations for tho
The man has the further advantage of
superintended work. Tho hardest part of
most laLor is the worry of planning it.
Ninety-nine men out of a hundred have set
tasks to perform, rarefully planned and ap
portioned, and thftir responsibility ceases
with tho pro)er execution of their allotted
share. Tho woman, on tho other hand, must
plan as well asexecuto. Tho manifold ditie
of the household must bo so timed as to con
ttiut with odo another as littlo as possible.
Very luueh of the weariness of household
work might bo avoided if there wra wise
supervision and intelligent method.
But, asain, tho work of man is far less lia
l.lo to interruption. Tho clerk may sit on
bis revolving stool for hours and never have
his attention diverted from his commercial
arithmetic; thofurmor inay drive his polished
plo-jv through countless furrows with nomoro
nnnoying interruptions than an occasional
etubborn bowlder or a nest of buzzing bees;
the clergyman sits in his study with bolted
door, far removed from the requirements of
children, tho chatter of visitors or the wants
of servants. Cut tho wives of these men can
rarely pursue their labors for a slnglo hour
without many interruptions. In tho first
place many different things have to bo man
aged at tUe same time; while tho dinner is
cooking the table is being set, tho baby is
watched, and tho "front room is dusted.
Then if there are servants, they are in con-
htant ncc-J of supervision; if tho door bell
- rings, tho business or pleasure of tho calier
must be ascertained, the children must bo
started punctually to school and luncheon
provided for them, and so on.
. Men, too, havo better tools for their work
than women. It is only in recent years that
tho attention of inventors has been turned
toward this subject, and still, with the not
able exceptions of the sewing machine and
wringer, what important addition has been
made to tho working tools of woman? Coin
pare a piano and chisel with a kitchen knife,
tne hydraulic press with a jelly bag! If men
bad to stir the hasty pudding of America for
one month, there would bo a thousand appli
cations for patents on stirring machines
within tho thirty days.
Finally, men receive direct compensation
for their work, while women for their house
work, of course, never do; and while on the
ono hand they do not want it, on the other
hand there is a wonderful incentive to patient
toil in tho anticipation of a definite recogni
tion of one's labor in the form of money. It
seeni3 pleasanter to work and earn $10 than
to do (10 worth of work at home.
If in addition to these things we consider
the engrossing wearing duties of women as
p-ives nun xuoLuers, is i u uvi cviucuu iuau
their position in the home is one of unequal
service 1 Disproportionate not merely to their
physical strength, but actually greater in
amount and life waste than that of men.
If this is true, and if our first proposition
be admitted, namely: that the man's share
ought to bo the heavier, we are ready for the
question, what ought to bo man's part iu
good housekeeping? What ought the man to
do besides merely earning the money to sup
port himself and family!
In the light of tho preceding discussion it
seems clear he should first of all help his wife
in planning her work. Let every husband
give bis wife the bene lit of his practical busi
ness experience, and advise with her how she
may best arrange and time her several duties
that they may least conflict.
In the second place, the husband should
give the wife the full amount of money nec
essary properly to care for the home.
. Third lie should see that she has tho best
tools that can be bad to lighten her labor.
Fourth lie should by every possible means
2orten her hours of labor. If he finds that
X-:e is obliged to work earlier and later than
be, then he should at once give or procure
for ber such assistance as will make their
working hours equal.
Fifth Realizing that for her labor she re
ceives no direct compensation, he should, at
the least, bo careful to givo continually that
reward of cordial praise, which costs him
nothing and so much pleases her.
Finally, tho man must recognize that
many of tho domestic duties are essentially
proper to him, and not to tho woman; such
are all that require great physical exertion.
Therefore, not only should proper imple--Qents
be generously furnished for the
woman's use, but all the materials she must
us should be provided and made easily ac
cessible, rienty of coal, wood and kindlings
should be kept near the place where they are
to be burned, water should be supplied so as
to be bandy and abundant, plenty of hooks,
shelves, closets, etc, should be arranged to
the best advantage.
At house cleaning time the man should
cither move or get moved the heavier articles
of furniture; be should attend to the clean
ing and putting down of carpets, the setting
op of stoves, &rd the like; in a word
be should sssuom the responsibility for

keeping. Tyranny of the .Baby.
A great and quite general mistake is to
believe that an infant. If he be healthy,
should be a perpetual sleeper. In vain at
tempts to influence this unreasonable result,
the young mother worries herself to death in
order to keep the' house quiet. Papa comes
home full of news from the city and is
warned to ;,tread softly, baby's asleep!" He
brings a friend, and tho friend "enjoys his
visit" by feeling as depressed as though he
had been to see an invalid. Is o word roust
bo spoken above a whisper; no joke must be
told, as it might cause a laugh ; no song must
le sung, as it might remove the graveyard
solemnity every and all things pleasant
must be sacrificed at the shrine of the first
All this is totally wrong. In the first
place, it is nonsense to expect a baby to
sleep twenty-four hours in a day; and in the
second place if a child is brought up so that
perfect quietude is the prime condition un
der which it will sleep the life of the mother
will be a sad one. Rather let the child get
used to every day noises; let it becomo ac
customed to conversation, to laughter, to
singing, and then the first sound link in tho
grand chain of its character has been forged.
It is but a natural step from a tyrannical
baby to a spoiled child, and yet wliat young
mother would voluntarily spoil her boy.
Rocking or jouncing the infant in its
cradle or on the lap are common practices
that should be avoided. They do the child
no good, and cause great annoyance and un
necessary trouble to the parents. The mo.
ment there is a stir in tho cradle a furious
rocking is begun, and continued until the
Ioor little innocent is again whirled into
unnatural slumber land, Emily Cordon in
Crowing; Up In Corsets.
Tho assertion has an odd sound, but it is
probably true, that not ten women out of a
bundled have the faintest conception of
what it would feel like to have a natural, uur
fettered body. Within a few weeks the
writer has asked twenty-eight women at
what age they first put on corsets. Thirteen
of then said they could not remember a time
when they had not wpra them. Their earli
est recollections of themselves nd their
dress included corset waists and corset lac
ings. One Kew York physician estimates
that city girls are corseted on an average
when 7 years old. Another said that her in
quiries would lead hf.r to put it at 9 years.
Women grow up in corsets and b&ciuouize
with their environments. They put on cor
sets in the morning before they do their
shoes, and would not think they could comb
their hair without bteyg. They live in oor
Bets, and would bo thoroughly unoopifort
able without them. They haven't developed
muscW to get along without support. And
yet tho corset might bo mode, at least, less
obtrusive. It used to be tho proper thing to
wear an under bodice of shape and thickness
to hide or disguise the outline pf the contri
vance of whalebones and steels. Nowadays
nothing of the sart seems to be thought nec
essary. The corset is as prominent as if pa
raded outside the gown. The fashion plate
marks its top and its bottom distinctly, and
as for the woman herself, look at the next
one you see qu a hone car and you can sketch
her corset very accurately un th inavgin of
your newspaper. New York Mail and Ex
press. American and European Voices.
It is a well known fact that the American
voice is pitched higher than that of the Eu
ropean; and it is said the pitch has been
gradually rising during tho past century.
Indeed, our musical instruments are keyed
higher than those of European manufacture.
But don't let any woman deceive herself
with the thought that there are good and
sufficient reasons for raising her voice higher
in conversation. It is one of the regrettable
things about American women that they can
be recognized by their shrill voices in the
most mixed and cosmopolitan companies in
any city or country of the world.
It is a marvel to English women that
American women talk so loud and have such
resonant voices. A low voice is not only
counted a sweet thing in woman, but one
certainly expected in a lady. It is a virtue
to bo cultivated, if one has it not, and in
time it will abide with her who wooes geutle
speech. Some women have a larynx that
seems lined with velvet, so softly fall all the
words from their lips; not that there is any
muffled sound to their clear consonants and
open vowels, but rather a rounder, riqher
swell and fall to each pulsing phrase than
thin lipped, nervous, emphatic women are
ever capable of. The latter, if perchance
they assume the grace of low speech, take a
sort of sibilant whispering tone, more irri
tating than their natural high strain. With
tho low, rich voioe goes a musical, genial
laugh, and a smile that lights the eyes as it
curls away from tho lips. St. Louis Repub

I always have a feeling of pity for girls
who have florid or sallow complexions, or
whose faces are bespattered with freckles,
looking as if they had been about when a
bran bin had exploded. I feel sorry for
them, not because of any harm that the
freckles do, for really I think them nice, as
they are evidence of a pure, light and healthy
complexion, but because the removal of them
or tho sallowness is so easy if they only knew
I accidentally discovered a sovereign rem
edy a couple of years ago, which costs next
to nothing. One day the plumber shut our
water off, and I could get none in which to
wash my face. It was fearfully soiled, and
looking out the window just then I saw a
friend approaching to call on me. Glancing
about me I noticed half of a watermelon
from which the meat had been removed
some time before. It was partially filled
j with juice, and Ihastily washed my face in
it. The result was so soothing that I repeat
euly washed my face in that manner. Judge
I of my astonishment, a few days later, on
seeing that there was not a freckle left on
my face. A number of my girl friends then
tried it, and the result was a great beautify-
I ing of countenances. No matter what is
wrong with the face, the juice of the water
melon will rectify it and produce a clear
skin. G lobe-Democrat.
A Craln of Artificiality.
A little artificiality will contrive to rob of
its sting and annoyance a criticism or a piece
of advice which would otherwise fail utterly
of its purpose if it be any other than to ruffle
the temper of the recipient. With a little
more artificiality introduced into married
life, is it not evident that the sum of misery
caused by "incompatibility of temper" would
be reduced! But no. We are told that we
must be natural; end so husband and wife go
their own ways, regardless of each other's

Developing CTtnnjgatherly Instinct.
MissWillard thinks that the boys should
be encouraged to play with dolls as well as
tho girls. And I agree with her. The fath
erly instinct needs more developing in tho
men than the maternal instinct in the women.
Perhaps if littlo boys played with dolls and
nursed them through lurid complications of
fell disease as girls do, labored over their
support and bent their backs and pricked
tbeir fingers-fashioning their wardrobes and
darning their rent garments, wo would hear
of fewer cases of desertion of flesh and blood
families by good for nothing fathers. Do
not be afraid of making your boy effeminute
and a '"Miss Nancy" by encouraging him in
gentle ways and plays. ' Would you not in
the end prefer a development that should
stand high among good men and angels to a
development of the John L. Sullivan typo or
tho modern baseball player? Ihe boy that
is taught to play with dolls will seldom, if
ever, becomo a bruiser or a bully. "Amber"

Culiappincss Among the Married.
Tho Edinburgh Review takes n view quite
contrary to Walter Besant. It says that,
however we may try to conceal it, there is a
vast amount of unhappiness among married
people of all classes. The fault is not with
the men nor with the women, but it is in
volved in our social system. It obliges her
to sell herself to a man that is, secure a hus
band before her salable uommoditiea, youth
and beauty, ore gone from her. As there are
more women than men the woman has prac
tically no choice, and soma women no chance,
even to sell themselves. The remedy, it is
6ugg?sfeiJ, lies, iij gjying the woman m k u4
money in other words, equality of position.
Probably the instincts of the sexes are by no
means so easily disposed of as this writer
supposes. G lobe-Democrat.

During the hot season I have fifty applica

WOMAN EXPECTATION OF -IFE
GREATER THAN THAT OF MEN.
Interesting- Ileport from a Iteroirnlzed
Authority A Formidable Array of Y--
Why Women Are I.onger I.iv-1
Thau Men The Future.
Professor Stanford E. Chaille, M. D., dean
of the medical faculty of Tulane university,
recognized authority iu mutters of sani
tary philosophy and hygiene, has recently
published an interesting report on the life
and death rates of New Orleans as coinpured
with those of other cities. Attention here is
directed to some deductions which the pro
fessor derives from his statistics, and if we
may trust in this case to t he somew hat ques
tionable statement that "figures never lie,"
wo are brought fuco to face with some re
markable and strikingly suggestive fucts.
Our professor's statistics, which are, of
course, jerfectly square and honorable as
far ns ho is concerned, are derived partly
from tho records of tho Louisiana board of
health, which is charged with tho duty of
recording all births and deaths iu this city,
and partly from the mortuary tables of the
tenth United States census, and they ore
doubtless as reliable as such colluted figures
usually are. From them it is discovered
that in most parts of the United States
women havo a better expectation of life
than men; they livo longer and survive
with more tenacity and success tho vicissi
tudes that tend to shorten existence. Uut
it is in New Orleans w here these advantage!
ure enjoyed to the highest degree over P.nv
T!B feOmfcli BBS SUPERIOR.
Here a learned physiologist presents a for
midable array of figures to show that in the
struggle for life tho softer sex starts out with
decided advantages of immunity from the
assaults of deijth e.s waui-ared with the males;
tlfikii tne women have better chances for de
velopment in all that mukes up sane, sound
and vigorous life. In a word, the men urc
on the down grade of health and marafe,
while the women possess i that conduce tc
their physical una moral superiority. Let
us quote the words of our scientist:
"Tho expectation of life for females is, in
every locality, better than of males, but tlm
difference in favor of females varies yrMly,
and to an extend uexpl;uiblo by uie. The
Buperiovity of white females over males is
greatest, and very gi'eat, in Kew Orleans awl
Charleston; it is a little in Boston, Brooklyn
and New York, and it is very slight and lortst
in New Jersey and Massachusetts The four
teen localities tak, a reference to this su
periority oi females over males, tho follow
ing order: New Orleans, Charleston, Cincin
nati, San Francisco, St- Lou.', Chicago,
Philadelphia, District of Columbia, Balti
more., Jfew York, Brooklyn, Boston, Massa
chusetts, New Jersey.
"The like superiority and difference exists
in reference to colored females ad males.
The localities reported, oniy four, take the
following ordar: iNew Orleans, again first,
and tho difference is very great, though not
as great as between white females and males;
next Baltimore, then the liiti iot of Colum
bia, and latt Charleston. And it is very sin
gular that in Charleston, where the sueri
oritj of the white female is very great, tho
superiority of the colored female over the
colored male is very little,
"Another sinsUvU' fucb is that, while, there
is a siigui; superiority in Massachusetts of tho
females over the males, yet the males have
the superiority from two to ten years of aye,
and that this male superiority is found In no
other locality. A tlnpd singular fact, and
one enoouwS!g specially to New Orleans, is
thai; the expectation of life of its white
females is superior to that of tho white
females of Charleston, Brooklyn, Now York
and Boston; but the expectation of life of the
white males of Now Orleans is less than in
TUB SEVERAL REASOXS WHY.
Why is all this possible Our author re
plies: "Females are, in less number, guilty of
vicious and hurtful excesses; they are more
confined in tho house and engaged in less
hazardous occupations, and thereby tlfey are
less exposed to communicable diseases, to
inclemencies of weather and to dangerous
accidents. But these obvious causes, while
explaining in part, fail to do so in whole.
For at no time is the superiority of females
as great as under 5 years of age, and such
females are no more exposed than males to
tho above causes. For such reasons vital
statisticians have claimed that nature en
dowed the female with a stronger vitality,
with greater vital endurance, and if there
be better explanation I do not know it."

are. in obedience to subtle forces of evolu- r
tion, growing physically more perfect, and
this would seem also to include advancement
toward moral perfection, the men are de
clining in all vital characteristics. The
women are growing constantly more beauti
ful and more numerous, while the men are in
a corresponding ratio to retire from tho
world they have for so many ages domi
nated and controlled. By these mysterious
and potential agencies the men are dying,
fading out of existence, and their last de
spairing gaze is to be fixed on a raco of god
desses, "divinely tall and most divinely
fair," crowding upon the stage whero the
tremendous tragedy of "Man and Woman"
has been so long enacted, but now to be
superseded by the inexpressibly peculiar and
unknowable drama, "Woman."
It is to this ending that all the musty
figures and dry bones of science presented
above inevitably tend. It is the consumma
tion of an implacable law which is destiny,
declaring the survival of the fittest. It por
tends a grand future for woman, but it is
much to be doubted if Eve can be happy in
paradise without Adam. New Orleans Pica
