A SugKentJon or So.
Flesh texture and tint perform a most
important function in female beauty.
To preserve and improve them demands
tiio strictest observance of sanitary laws.
A b:ui skin, lacking tint, plumpness
and elasticity, indicates want of good
ness in tlio vital or nutritive system.
Diet, digestion, temperature, open air
exercise, bleep and tranquillity of mind
are absolute necessities to every woman
who wishes to keep her youtli.
As to dit?t, it is only necessary to ask
what does the average American girl
eat? She sits down to a potato and a
pickle, three or four cups of 6trong tea,
Ji'0;fikeH, sweets and liery condiments.
If tihe includes beef in her menu it is
only after roasting, frying and grilling
has reduced it to a state of complete in
digcstibility. What is tho result of such
a regime? liy tho time she is 20, just at
tho age nature intended her to be as Uex
iblo as a sapling willow, her eyes are
dull, iier teeth yellow, her gums iale,
her lips wan and pallid, her ilesh placid,
her 6kin horny and sallow; in fact, all
the swell and sap of her womanhood is
either undeveloped or elso quenched, de
stroyed, dried out. What then? To re
pair these unsightly damages she resorts
to melding, whitewashes, stains and bel
ladonna and kolb for her eyes.
These are a ghastly substitute for the
burnished glow of health. Once to in
dulge in artilicLil cosmetics is to be their
slave through all eternity.
TUUEE SIMPLE KCLES.
The once famous beauty, Lola Jlontez,
was heard to say tho only real secret of
preserving beauty lay in three simple
tilings temperance, exercise and cleanli
ness. JVpxred soups and stews, game pat
tit's, ragouts and spices even moderately
indulged in will exercise deteriorating
elfeetd upon a delicate complexion.
Women who do not restrain their gas
tronomic propensities will acquire before
'M the iicated, blotched faco we are wont
to assocjato with "high living," while
the linn textuxy of the tlesh and the
supple shape will soon bo replaced by
flabby softness and scraggy leanness.
during my few years of rather broad
onl variegated exiericnce studying
benutv and the habits of its fair pos
sessors, I havo known only one who for
a scric3 of years accustomed herself to
fcjte hours, constant excitement, brain
work and censurable feasting without
erasing every trace of beauty. I saw her
looking aa dainty as an ivory Isi3 after
eight years of sucl perilous self treat
ment r.3 1 shudder to describe. Physi
cians consider the case unique.
Women of nervous and sanguine tem
perament should restrict themselves to
a diet of eggs, milk, bread, salads, fruit,
light broths and tho Crustacea. They
should r-ccttstoia themselves to drlaking
aerated ami natural mineral spring wa
ters, avoiUng selves and condiments,
l delicious and tern ptiDS as these fiery de-
lights may le. In tho matter of diet,
tho blonds U, by force of physiological
tendencies, constrained to stern self de
nial at table. It is an old saw among
doctors that blue eyes, ilaxcn hair and
tjxo pink and white faco mean struma,
jfttruma is r. prettier word than scrofula,
but the condition is tho same and quite
as troublesome. These inflammable tem
jeraments are congestive, catarrhal,
outv, and tea, coffee, underdone beef,
oily food, spices, alcoholic beverages and
opiates concur to produce a general un
healthy action of tho skin In dryness,
pimples, blotches and discolorations,
Condiments, malt and spirituous drinks
an& tincture of iron thicken the blood,
giving it color and constituency. The
philosophy contained in the advice of
the expert in skin troubles to a lady who
consulted him ia reference to a red nose,
upon hearing her habit to be a nightly
tipple of wliisky and water, "leave put
tho water and your nose will soon be
purple," is na old as it i3 reliable.
EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE.
A case which came under my imme
diate observation was that of an ashen
blonde whoso skin was as fair and opaque
as white lead, and whoso hair Avas unre
lieved bv one amber gleam. After an
attack of typhoid fever, which, by the
way, h r.n effective purifier of the eys

many of th3 advertised complexion rem

and liq'.'.or, and tho element these intro

breads. Iiivcs, eore eyes and annoying
skin disturbances are the oufowth of
4 !-rI t 1'in
For the slender, bilious brunette, whose
blood i-J thin and whose temperament is
watery, a free diet of underdone beef
and port wine should replace the severe
regimen cf the blonde. Tints, rather
than colors, nro l.eautiful, and .a blojjdo
of tho ruddy typa 6hould exercise care in
selecting tonics. Those containing red
wine r.nd iron color tho Bkin to an ugly
brick lust, and I can confidently assert a
natural anvrient Lj more efficient in cov
recti lie: r.II disorders of congestion and
circulation, and the evil consequences of
indiscretion ia diet, than its printed,
labels claim. When it is necessary to
renew tho vital energies a two grain
pellet of quinine taken every evening for
a month will furnish the blonde with
strength without Increase of pigment.
2sot only diet, but climate and temper
ature, exert a powerful influence upon
beautv. The white skins, unmingled
with chrome or bronze tints, are liable
to disorder from sudden changes of tenv
perature and imperfect ventilation,
Ktron blazes of sunlight and rude winds
are both damaging to this type of com,
plexion. Winter the season of discon

FISHING WITH THE SALMON WHEEL.
Tho I lit -rl Scheme Kver Inrented for
Capturing the Finny Tribe.
The man who invented tho Colum
bia rivarsalnion wheel was a genius.
The laziest fisherman who ever baited
a hook could ask no easier way of
landing fish. And only the fact that
it can only be used at certain points
on the stream prevents this machine
from exterminating the salmon in one
season. Imagine a common umlci
shot wheel, with the buckets turned
wrong way about. This is set in a
high narrow flume near the bank of
the river, where the current is very
swifL From the down stream end of
this flume, extended outward at an
angle of forty-live degrees, aro two up
right fences, formed by pickets driven
closely together into the bottom of tho
river, and wired to keep them from
washing away. Just above the wheel
(which is some ten feet in diameter),
at the up stream end, is a platform,
from which a box flume runs to the
Now let us see how it works. When
the salmon aro running, as every
body knows, they come up in the Co
lumbia river by millions. The stream
is very deep, and a large percentage
always succeed in getting to the breed
ing grounds in safety. When salmon
aro running up a river they are con
stantly on tho lookout for small
streams in which to spawn. Also
where the current is very swift they
are unable to make headway in the
center of the Btream, and consequently
seek the more quiet water near the
bank. Of these two instincts the in
ventor of tho fish wheel took a mean
advantage. At the Cascades, for in
stance, where tho water is very swift,
he bets his wheel. Hero come the
fish, hugging tho bank by thousands
great black fellows, from two to four
feet lonr, heading resolutely up
stream. Nothing can turn them back
ward. That wonderful instinct of na
ture which insures the preservation of
species is nowhere better developed
than in a salmon. Now they are just
below that widespread fence. The cur
rent, which is rushing through tho
flumes, and turning tho big wheel
at a lively pace, attracts, their at
tention. Tho upicr fence, which sets
nearly square across the stream, makes
quiet water there, and this flow seems
to come from the bank. This, to the
salmon's mind, is evidently the mouth
of a shallow creek. Here is a spawn
ing ground to our liking, and up this
littlo stream we go. So they crowd
up between the two narrowing fences
toward the fatal wheel. The tii-st lish
reaches it, goes with a rush to over
come the current, is caught by a
bucket, and tip he goes high in 'the
air, while every bucket brings up an
other and another, till there is a pro
cession of ascending fish. At tho top
the velocity throws the fish violently
upon tho platform, froin which he
shoots down the flume to a great tank
on the shore. Ilere come the fish,
crowding each other forward to the
busy wheel. None can go under nor
to ono side. Nono will go back. And
onco a school starts for a wheel the
owner can consider that he has a title
deed to the eutiro lot.
One wheel will run a cannery. Day
and night, while tho run lasts, they
como flying up thp wheel and shoot
ing down tho flume in a continuous
stream. Fortunately there aro but
few places on the river where the
wheels can bo worked with this result.
Where the fish can keep in the middle
of the river few can bo caught in this
way. But the men who control these
points ai-e making fortunes. As it is
salmon are rapidly disappearing from
the Colurnbja. livermore Herald.
The Study of Greek.
It is the enormous and inestimable
value of Greek literature that eives
the Greek language a proper right to
its eminence a3 a feature of a col
legiate course,' and if fhe Greek litera
ture is to be put to one side and tho
students are to be taught Greek out of
newspapers, then the study of the
language had better at once be rele
gated to the position of a collegiate
sido issue of no interest or importance
except to specialists.' We do" not ploubji
in tho least that, after a certah fash
ion, tho study of Greek couJd be made
moi"0 interesting more entertaining
would perhaps be a better phrase to a
grpat many students, than it is by the
curtotnary hammering away at Homer
and the poets. But the young fellow
who can t get interested in preek ex
cent through some such a device us
this had a good deal better let it alone
altogether. He can certainly put in
his finie at college a good deal better
in (obtaining a reading and colloquial
acquaintance with French German or
any other foreign language, than he
can by fooling with newspaper Greek.
Vo admit the force of all the Missis
guage; hut all the same, if he and his
fellows let go jn the least of the idea
thct it is a sympathy with antique
Greek culture that they are seeking to
drive into the heads of the young fel
lows under their care, they will do the
cause of classical culture vastly more
harm than has been done by all the at
tacks of the modernists. Philadelphia
Condition n rruaala.
Eussia employs more men to prp
tluco less corn than any other coun
try. When tho serfs were emanci
pate in 186 J. a portion of Jand, from
eight to nine acres per head, was al
lotted throughout Russia to the peas-aiit-j
who occupy themselves with the
cultivation of their own ground.
Since then the condition of Russia
scer.is to have been growing worse
and worse. The amount of territory
given up to the serfs by the emanci
jiation act of 18G1 was about one-half
of tho arable land of the whole em

An Affectionate Lioc.
The superintendent of tho animal de
partment put in Woodward 8 garden tells
n pathetic and pretty story about a lion
they had out there, says ino ban rran
cisco Chronicle. At first lie was bo dan
gerous that they did not care to venture
too close to him, but by persistent gen
tleness and kindness the suerintendent
craduallv made the beast so fond of him
that it liked to have him go into the
crHre, ami if lied he down beside it the
lion would raise its head, so as to give
hun a soft place to he. One day a drunken
sailor came into tho gardens and In'gan
teasing tho lion. Tho superintendent
came up and told the sailor not to tease
tho beast, the sailor replied with an
oath, and struck at him twice. The lion
became perfectly franctio with rage, and
roared, and bent the bars of his cage ho
much that the sailor got frightened. If
tho lion had got out of his cage there
would not have been enough left of the
sailor for a funeral. At length tho lion
got some kind of a tumor and was in
great pain. One or two slight operations
had to be pertormeu, and nobody could
get near the beast except this one man.
The lion let him cut, and looked at him
gratefully all the time, licking his hand
when it was over. The tumor grew so
bad that a big operation had to !e per
formed and it was with fear and trem
bling that the superintendent undertook
it, for the lion was in terrible pain. The
doctors could not go near, but they drew
a diagram of the body of the lion, held
it up lcfore him as he went on, and
made the marks on it where he was to
cut. lie followed their directions, and
all tho while the lion lay as still as if he
were undisturbed. The last operation
did no good. 1 he beast was in such fear'
ful pain tliat they had to kill him. The
superintendent took his revolver and
after petting the animal fired one shot
through Ins head, putting the muzzle
close to it. Tho lion gave him a pathetic
look, in which there seemed to be a mix
ture of surprise and reproach, but no
anger. It took three shots to kill him,
and all tho time the beast never took his
eyes off tho man who was killing him.
The superintendent says he was never so
curiously and deeply affected in his life,
and he could not help crying; even now
ho feels the tears come when he recalls
it, and ho cannot forget the lion's pitiful
look as Ids head fell bock for the last
A County of New Mexico.
Thero is not a county in New Mexico
but has many natural advantages and
wonderful resources, but Dona Ana
county, in tho south central portion of
the territory, probably takes the lead.
Dona Ana county is a vast tableland
4,000 feet above sea level, 150 miles from
east to west and 100 miles from north to
south. Great mountain ranges spring
up from the vast plain to a height of
from 2,000 to 0,000 feet above their level,
and from twenty to fifty miles in length,
but aro seldom more than ten or twelve
miles in width. These mountains trend
nearly north and south, and ' are all rich
in mineral, some of them containing
mines that have been worked for many
years by the old Spaniards and Mexicans,
and are still producing. Large quanti
ties of goldj silver, copper and galena
and pther tumorals pre found.
The plains between these mountain
ranges aro treeless, but covered with
rich, nutritious grama grass, which is
equal to the best cultivated provender, it
is asserted, for rough feed. This vast
tract of tableland is traversed from north
to south by the Rio Grande del Norte,
which has washed out a valley five or
6ix miles in width. For ages the pro
longed freshets the melting snows of
spring and tho summer rains have
brought with them the surplus decom?
posed vegetable matter and rich in min
eral salts which impregnate the turbulent
waters as they wash the mountain sides,
tho vast plains, and rush down the ar
royas. Theso sedimentary deposits are
in tliis way precipitated, and have cov
ered the entire valley to a great depth
with the richest of alluvial soils. The
waters of the Rio Grande, like those of
the Nile of Egypt, are exceedingly rich
in this sedimentary materia held in
solution, and when spread over the lands
in the process of irrigation, renews the
soils and renders the use of other fer
tilizers unnecessary. Cor. Kansas City
The Haunted Hole.
One night about fifty years ago a brutal
murder was committed at a lonely place
on tho high road between Warwick and
Stratford-upon-Avon, writes a London
correspondent. The next morning the
murdered man was found lying by the
roadside, his head much mangled, resting
in a small hole in the bank. The assas
sins, two in number, were shortlv after
ward discovered, and they were hanged
at Warwick for their crime. From that
day to this the hole wherein the dead
man's head reposed remains unchanged.
No matter how often it may be filled up,
whether by the wash of heavy rains or
by stones and leaves that boys may hap
pen to cast into it as they pass, it is soon
found to bo again empty. No one takes
care of it. No one knows whether or by
whom it is guarded. Fill it at nightfall
and you will find it empty in the morn
ing. That is the local belief and affirma
tion. The place is haunted.
This spot is about two miles out of
Stratford, and not distant from the gates
of Charlcote park. I looked at this hole
ono bright day in June, and saw that it
was empty. Nature, it is thought by the
poets, abhors "cbmphcitly with the"con:
cealnient of crime, and brands with her
curse the places that are linked with the
shedding of blood. You will recall that
strong line in Tom Hood's poem of '.' Eu
gene Aram": "For a. mighty wind had
6wept the place, and stfil the corse was
bare." Cincinnati Enquirer.
Be Kind to fhe Children,
Wallace says the mind of man is so
great that henceforth his "selection
will replace the primaeval power of
'natural selection, so that it is possible
the earth will bear only culti vated plants
and tame animals; and Frederica Brer
mer thinks man may possibly create "an
ennobled race of animals" by the edupa,r
ition of a kind and gentle treatment.
With what potency, then, comes this
truth to the education of children. Here,
indeed, is tho richest reward of kind
ness, And how s it possible to look on
a child without being touched by th
pathos of its helplessness? How f earlu
harshness is.'or cold' neglect, and how
dreadful are angry punishments to those,
