t waa ' outrageous to expect
that when a man was mortally wound

than most of the work which women
perform in other occupations requiring
manual labor. It is certainly loss
monotonous , and is in ovpry sense
highly respectable. Domestic labors ,
by common consent nro the proper
ones for women to perform , nnd the
ones iu which the largest number of
highly respectable wives and mothers
are engaged. No woman ia .moderate
or fair circumstances fools any deg
radation in cooking food , swooping
floors , and keeping clothing in order
for the members of her own family.
She would , however , fool degraded if
she wns obliged to tend store or work
in a manufactory.
Evidently it is not the difference in
remuneration or in the nmount or se
verity of the Inbor to bo performed
that causes girls to prefer almost any
kind of occupation to that of house
work. The cause of their aversion to
household duties must be sought else
where. An intelligent wrjter in one
of our magazines suggests that caste
distinctions are very closely drawn
between the persons who-do different
klnils of labor W thi country , Seam
stresses who work t n custom gnrmdnts
regard those who1 sow on ordinary
work as their inferiors. The latter
look with scorn if not contempt on tbo
girls who prepare their food in cheap
boarding houses. Iu the several arti
ficial grades among working women ,
that of general house servant is
thought by these otherwise employed
to bo the lowest in the social scale.
T.his class distinction , in the
opinion of the writer , has
much to do iu the influenc
ing the choice of occupation.
Girls who do housework must bo ele
vated to the social position that seams
tresses and clerks enjoy , or they will
bo reluctant to continue in the calling
in which they are engaged. A writer
in an English paper states that girls
engaged in 'housework are often
nbusnd in the public press , and the
faults common to them as a class
greatly magnified , while a good word
is rarely spoken in their favor. Ho
states that the few thefts committed
by servant girls are always promptly
reported in the papers , as are their
acts of carelessness , while no public
notice is over made of faithful con
duct or heroism in the discharge of
duty. The question of domestic help
is now attracting considerable atten
tion in Great Britain , and measures
are bning taken with a view to induce
superior girls to work in private fami
lies instead of in hotels and manufac
tories , Many mistresses in the
higher classes of society are desirous
of obtaining the services of women of
( natp and refinement in 'heir ' house ,
Only a few days ngo the papers
chronicled the death of a young ser
vant girl as the result of saving her
mistress from being burned. In her
heroic efforts io extinguish the flames
her own dross caught fire , and , after
suffering protracted misery , she died
the most terrible of all deaths. The
instances of nurse girls periling their
own lives to save the lives of children
committed to their charge are fre
quent , and are deserving of general
notice , Considering the largo amount
of valuable property loft in charge of
servant girls by women who devote
much time to shopping , visiting and
pleasure seeking , it seems remarkable
that cases of theft are not more fre
quent than they are. Wo hear of
about as many banks being robbed by
high-salaried officials as wo do of
houses being robtted by poorly paid
orvant girls who are left in charge of
born. The temptations sot before
omestica are many , and ore generally
osistcd. Servant girla do not unite
n gono'ral atxlu'a for shorter hours or
ighor wages , > > r for both , as persons
o who nro on igcd in most kinds of
rork , Aa n class they are conscion-
ious , honest and upright. They

n most cases , bo bettor performed.
VJmt is moro , a bettor class of girls
vould prefer working in private
louses to working in shops , stores ,
and large manufactories. Now that
o many now avenues are opened to
working women , it may become ne
cessary to offer greater inducements
or girls to engaqo in household
