"Now, children, you have told me

I had reached this point the other
evening when there came a ring at the
door bell, and after a minute I dis
covered that A r. Old Fogy had de
cided on another attack. He meant
to give me Gts this time. He brought
along two or three teachers and they
at once walked into may schoolroom.
I did at lirst have a sign of "State
Prison" over I he door, so as to mak
it seem like a regular school houtt to
the pupils, but as they jnsisted .upon
rtgarding it as a novelty I removed
"Well, you have, been teaching, 1 .see
observed Mr. Old Fogy.
"Yes. six of these children belong iu
this neighborhood, and don't atttinl
any regular school."
"We don't exactly agree on the
school question, you know, said Mr.
Old Fogy. "You did rather stump ine
the other night but I'd like you to
ask some of those teachers a few
"Very well,- Mr. lilank, how many
bushels of whtat will make a barrel of
"Why, that isn't a regular question,
he replied as he looked aroiinu.
"Isn't it?. Your arithmetic says
that sixty pounds of u iieat make a
bushel, and beiause it dees not say
how many bushels make a barrel of
Hour, Uij farmer who is figuring on
his. jears supply must be left in igno
rance. Here is ('barley, only nine
years old he may answer."
"From four and a half to live bush
els" the boy replied.
"Now. Mr. lJlank, can you name
the more prominent stars?"
"I can, sir,"
I thought so, but can you tell me
how manv spokes there are iu the
front wheel of a buggy can any of
"I protest," cried Mr. Old Fogy, but
they didn't answer, for all that.
"Well, Mr. lilank, can you translate
"1 can, sir.'
No doubt of it; but can you tell me
how to preserve cider?,'
There you go again J' cried Mr.
Old Fogy, but none" of them could tell.
"Are you familliai with cube root,
Mr. lilank V
"I am." but can you tell me the sal
ary of our governor?"
Noi.e of them could.
"Try some of the ladies," suggested
Mr. Oid Fi'gy, after a few more ques
tions. "All right, Miss Blank are you good
"I think so."
"And can you tell me oy pi;Y
yards of cotton to buy for a pair of
pillow slips V"
I)o you know what will ta.ke .stajns
out of a table cloth, or (,'!-. it- juis
out of a earpet ?"
"No, sir. '
' Can you direct a cook to make pie
crust or mix biscuit or bread?"
"Do you know the average length of

tell rue a ready family antidote for
poison, suggest a family remedy for a
cold or a sore throat, tell me how
many yards in a bunch of dress bra'ulj
the number of jard pt' ticking to
make a bed tick, a way to remove
paint from windows, or how to make
gruel for the sick?"
"What are you driving at y" indig
nantly demanded Mr. Old Fogy.
"I'll let my class go and teli you.
Let me first remark that I haven't
asked a question which these children
here cannot answer. This little girl
will answer all the ouestiuus i
asked MUs Blank, and yet she is not,
ten years old. A month ago I told her
that alum and brown sugar mixed to
gether would relieve croup. A week
ago. at deml of 'night, lOupd from
Sip'fip by her 'paretitCand "tlie wails, of
lief sick brother, she prepared the
remedy wnile her father was after the
doctor and her mother excited and
helpless, and in half an hour the
croup was gone. You ask tue what
lam driving at? Women are called
helpless and we do ng. luiik to see
tlie;;j liae presence of mind. Why
ci're 'they so?' Simply beeauso they
i'uay know" algebra by he;u t';iii( ye
liot knosv what is'i'ji Hntiduie for al
i;iut every poison. They learn
astrouomy, and yet don't know what
is good for a burn, or how lo stop the
nose bleed. They know all about
botany, and yet cannot tell what to do
lor a person who has fainted jtwav."
"But ln not ; housekeeper" "pro
tested Mis Blank.
"No; well, every woman looks for

Every female expects to marry rich,
but not one in tiu hundred 'caasoi

supposing him to have a successor in

whatever the title might be. But at
length" one or two ladies, widows of
peers, whose honors had descended to
their eldest son by a former marriage,
discarded the Dowager before their
names in favor of their Christian
names. Thus the widow of Lord Ailes
bury became "Maria. Marchioness of
A.," and lady Waldegrave, whose hus

herself "Frances Countess Waldegra ve."

without doubt, being mothers of reign

the same idea, until now there is s-carco
