'J'lio Modern Younjc Women.
Toledo Dlado : The newspaper wit aims
hisshalts of humor at uoobject with such
keen pleasure and delight as when he di
rects them at the modern young woman ,
her caprices and tendencies. And it must
be acknowledged that he does so not
without cause in many instances. While
there are thousands of young women
who represent what is best unil highest
in young womanhood , whose purposes in
Jifo iiNtend beyond the frivolities of dress
nud outward adornments , there is , on the
otiier hand , a large percentage that look
upon life "aw a joke that's just begun. "
1o borrow an expression from a popular
These young women live under the de
lusion that social distinction , beauty of
person and richness of apparel make the
woman. They are slaves to custom and
fashion and revel in i xternal attractions.
They accept the glitter lor the gold , her
aldry and trapping of the world for
the priceless essence of woman's worth ,
which exists within the mind. Their high
est attainment is not thu po.sse.ssion of a
true womanhood , but that their position
in society may bu a conspicuous one , and
thereto they bend all their energies.
Hours are spent over tlio latest fashion-
plates , while days are given over to the
making and perfecting of n w apparel
They torget that a true woman exists in
dependent of outward embellishments ,
that dress is regarded by many us only
the ivy that encircles the oak , and is never
mistaken for the tiling it adorns.
It is not tlie queen of fashion that
sways the sceptre of inllue.nceor author
ity over men. It is in the hand ot the
true , noble , sensible and virtuous women
that authority is placed , and where she
dwells there may retinenient , culture , in
telligence and moral power be found.
The influence of such a young woman
upon society is that of the most salutary

belle V Men may ailmire her for the mo

her beauty and charms da//.lu thu eye ;
but what are the after conclusions ? "Silly
creature , wrapped up in herself and thu
world , " was the comment of an apparent
admirer upon a young belle after an
uventtul social occasion in Now York
only a few weeks since. Fashion and
folly never gained an ounce of respect
worth the possession , and never will.
Young women , alasl too often mistake
adulation for respect , only to find at the
nnd that it was but hollow mockery and ,
like a pyrotechnic display , prepared for
the occasion.
A true young woman's ambitions
ptretcli beyond thu ball-room and the
milliner's establishment. Shu strives to
make her life grand in womanly virtue ,
and by her example inspires others to se
cure the same priceless crown of woman
hood. This is tlui woman thnt commands
the respect and admiration of tlio world ,
not temporarily , but permanently. In
her friends rccogn.i/.o a rich store of prac

of confounding education with acquire

ICasy Intimacies.
A writer in a London paper discourses
about the danger of easy "intimacies" ;
that is , of giving the confidence to people
ple of whom one knows nothing except
that they are pleasant companions \yhcti
they are met socially. "Thu danger lies , "
ho says , ' 'in the facilty with which com
panionship of this kind is mistaken for
true intimacy , though it does not really
imply anything to ic. " A woman "will
trust her life to tlio keeping of a man , of
whose aims , of whoso standard of right
and wrong , of whoso iiowor and habit of
living up to that standard she knows just
as much and just as little as she knows of
thu actons whom she has seen on the
stage , though she is deceived into think
ing she knows more , only because she
happens in this case to have been one of
the actors and not merely a passive spec
tator. " There is mere truth than poetry
in this thought , for in nine cases out of
ten tlio two persons who come together
in marriage liavo no more conception
each of the other's trim character and
real disposition than those of a
others in their circle of acquaintance.
They are simply pleasant , social com
panions , and that is all.
There are quite as many mistakes made
in friendship through these "easy intima
cies , " though thu consequences are not
as far reaching. Women , especially , are
apt to give their conlidenco to those with
whom they have been familiarly associ
ated when they have never proved their
trustworthiness. It is one thing to liavo
pleasant little familiar conversations
about every day matters ; it is another to
impart what perhaps touches thu inner
life , and , which madn light of , or misrep
resented , would place one in an uncom
fortable position , or possibly oven worse ,
injure the reputation or put it in the gos
sips' hands to do with as they please. A
real friend , n true triend , ono who can be
trusted to enter the holy of holies of your
heart without desecrating it , is among
the best gifts that life can ofl'er , but they
are found in small numbers , and are only
proved by trial. A certain amount of
reserve , oven with familiar companions ,
is a good thing to cmp'oy ' , for itgives not
only a sense of safety , but of security.

.stout- elastic , with n strousj miuii. Hi
fncc was of tlm cl'y. It had tlvo 1m-
porv'ousue s and thf hard lines which ibn
* lntgsrli' seems generally 1o indict. A3
lie walked up the stli > n ; on a chilly No-
\omber eveii'trT , f"ilh ! u < lieuvv overcoat
buttoned up to hfa cliln , and his square
h ! resting firmly o' ' { his head , ho seemed
thu embodied spirit of the prnctieal.
A long walk wna before him , but it was
a voluntary one , am ] so he did not mind
it. There was duri ! ; Irs time a theory
in the world that A man of podenliuy
life tii'i'ded nil posibu , ! artilieial exercise ,
and Philip ttirard was a convert to tin1
theory. The long walk from his plnre of
bu lne < " > to his homo was aegime a
thing for a man to be as proud of as he
niuv bo of his old wine , or of his still
more elderly lineage.
After Philip Oirard lunl walked a half
mile or such a mutter , the electric lamps ,
which had for sonni time been visible as
point * , but not i\s dijpnn atories of
brightness , became the liuhl of the night.
Under their witchery the city gained a
brilliancy that would have been beautiful
if it had not seemed MI cold and artifi
cial. Common tilings were traiisligurcd
by the light , but the beholder knew that
thu transfiguration was of tile same qual
ity as tlm eflect of tinsel on thu garments
of the royal people of tint stage.
The stout gentleman did not , however ,
stop to think of th'.S. The electric light
had , like most other things come to be to
him merely a matter of fact , if not a
matter of business. It was cheaper than
ga - or not so cheap this was tlm point
of view from which he would Itavo ob
served the great invention , if he had ob
served it with any thought whatever. On
this particular evening , however , neither
the light nor the ero\d on the street , nor
the gorgeous display in the shop-windows
templed his attention. Hit mind was
loat iu contemplation of the business of
tlio morrow. Having started lu.s legs iu
thu way of health and relaxation , Mr.
Philip ( rirariPs mind was satisfied that it
had done it- > whole duty in the promises
and returned with alacrity to the shop.
ft ot withstanding the power of thu elec
tric light , and thu long experience which
the legs of Mr. Philip Girard had gained
in leading their master through the
crowd without mental assistance , on this
particular evening they led him to a slip
pery place on the side-walk and were
nearly guilty of upsetting him ; but his
mind , returning from the shop , discov
ered him and restored him cleverly to the
perpendicular. However , he had left his
orbit , and the consequence was that , as
ho straightened up. Ids shoulder struck
with considerable rudeness uguinst the
arm of a woman \vlio had attempted to
puss : him. Impatient at the shock , .she
turned , and , as he involuntarily did like
wise , they looked fairly into each other's
eyes.The face that Philip Girard saw with
all poMble distinctness * was that of a
woman who had onco. been beautiful
who , in a certain way trasbeautiful still.
Hut there was sonultliHip more or less
than beauty in the ifncu something that
made the man shudder and the woman
shrink as they confronted each other in
tlm crowded street. No * one , looking at
that face as he was looking at it then ,
could have escaped the ! terrible conclu
sion to which he came. Among a thoii-
cand punishments with which God visits
these women who depart from thu ways
of ploas.intless and > pence , no ono may
more easily or surely bu discovered than
the change of countenance which is at
once a confession aitdiiu advertisement.
Just for an instailt IVilip Girard and
this woman looked Mnto each other's
eyes. The hurrying croud was Dossing
them carelessly by. Tlfo- accident which
had thrown them together was as com
mon as the apparently casual glance
which had followed it. On that thor
oughfare which men and women use , in
general , as a means to reach an cud
which fully occupies their mind , there was
no traveler observant enough to discover
that in the eves of the man and of tlm
woman who had paused , was something
different from anger or curiosity. No one
saw in the eyes of Philip Girard the look
of startled and horrified recognition
which was surely there , nor in those of
tlm woman the sudden light of intoler
able shame and agony which threatened
to burn them out.
The woman gathered her heavy skirts
deftly in her baud and .swept on. Philip
Girard , pale , trembling and di.scompo-cd
pursued his way. There was no word
The compact man of business , whoso
mind had suddenly been diverted from
affairs of money , reached his homo with
out further accident. His mother met
him at the door , as had been her custom
for many years. He kissed her gravely ,
and , after removing his great coat , ten
dered her his arm and witli marked dig
nity led her to tlio dining table. It was
a custom which , adopted somewhat play
fully in his boyhood , was seriously clung
to ifow.
The dinner progressed with little con
versation. The mother liad _ doubtless
become inured to thu taciturnity of her
son. for she made no eflort to relieve it ,
although one might see in her kind face
the capacity for good natured talkative
ness.The dinner ended , Philip Girard fol
lowed his mother to her pleasant living-
room , and after a moment's hesitation
passed to his library where , with his
pipe lit , his feet on this fender of a lire-
place , and his head lost in thu clouds of
smoke which curled around it , he thought

That glance had toKen him back nearly
twenty years , to n little country town ,
witli its white cottages , its surrounding
farms , its parity and cheerfulness and
oed humanity. He saw himself a strip-
ng , thoughtful , imaginative , ambitions
and romantic. He saw her , Louise , the
tender girl with whom ho had gone to
school , whoso books ho had carried ,
whoso trilling tasks lie had assuaged ,
whom ho had loved not only then , but all
his life. Her blue eyes came between him
and the lire , andher fair , careless hair
was tangled in the olouds of smoku by
which he was surrounded.
This child , the girl' tvbo had taught
him what it might haVa been to live ,
whom ho hud followed many Rummer
days across the meadows in a happy
search for flowers , who'-l ml many times
so airily and with suall heedless grace
helped him to fill hU dinner pail with the
strawberries which grqvf by the brook ,

city ueiiiaintauces | had over thought of
him in connection with romance ; and yet
more than any ot them lie was the erea-
luri'ofit. Ills ideal had always been
idealistic ; 1m had never reached that
familiarity with hi.-divinity'which is the
chief ivas"on of inconoi-lasm , In his Mm-
pie , manly , practical way lie had loved : losing her , there was to him no
pos.s bility of losing another. The man
who makes niereliandi.tu of hi-- senti
ment , who loves beauty in lliu ab.straet ,
whose heart espands ai Ihe mention of a
noble sentiment or at the sight of a beau
tiful woman , would have found balm
where Philip ( iirard hud never thought
of looking lor it. His lack of the emo
tional was tint one negative characteristic
which had held him due to the taney of
his early manhood.
With the letter open in lusliand. Philip
( i rard sat long that night staring iKodly
at ihi ! lire. U hat thoughts ran llironpi
liis mind , what tender recollections of si
past which he had olieris-hcd came to him
with all the bitterness of moekery , what
bewildered agony he suffered as a result
of the sudden debasement of his love , no
man can tell. She was not dead ! This
thought which , at any time iluriug the
years of his ide/ilism , would have been
greeted by him with great joy , was uov
the measure of his sutToriiig.
At hist the man leaned forward slowly ,
and with a steady hand dropped the Id
ler upon the glowing coals. There was
an instant's hesitation , a moment's flame ,
and the ashes of the letter reposed in the
grate as the ubhe.s of n true love were
ly'iti"1 in the heart of Philip Girurd.
That sturdy figure , that face which
seems to be a combination of shrewdness
and practicality , are si en on the street
to-day and in the ollice which for many
years' ha.s'beeu their place of business.
'Should you ask the casual acquaintance
of Philip ( Virard if there hail been aught
of romance in tlio composition of thu
great merchant , the answer would be a
laugh. So liUlu do we know our fellow-
Sunday In I'nrls.
Ol all the countries of Christendom
England is the most Sunday-ridden and
Franco is the least , , says Henry Watterson
in a letter to the Courier Journal. I do
not think that the English maintain the
S.ibbath "to keel ) it holy , " or that thu
Kre.nch mean to desecrate it. Hut , whilst
London becomes a .sleeping village every
seventh dav. Paris takes its weekly vaca
tion , and turns out en masse to have a
good time. All the great races are run
on Sunday. If there is to be a match
drill , a military fete or maneuver , or a
review of the grand armcu it is fixed for
Sunday. Of course , tlio theaters are
open , and the picture galleries , and , for
that matter , the shops. Heiiiir tlm lord's
day , it is given to the poor , who put on
their best attire , and take their outing.
In the forenoon the church-iroing is pro

Paris is exceptionally situated for popu
lar merrymaking. It occupies an undu
lating basin , through which the Seine
winds tortuously , surrounded by a tier of
hills , which abound with every kind of
resort jrom the palace of St. Cloud to the
cafes of the 15ois do Boulogne and the
Brasseries of the Hois do Vincennes.
Them is no end to the places of out-door
amusement , nor tlio vehicles of locomo
tion. A few sous will take you anywhere.
In short , if there bo anything cheap in
France , it is recreation , and the day set
apart for it is Sunday.It is , indecu , the
custom iu all the Latin countries. In
Mexico they assess an extra Sunday tax
on the gambling houses , not out of any
religious considerations , or for the pur
pose of putting an obstruction upon vice ,
out simply to obtain increased revenues
from the increase of patronage incident
to the seventh day. In Spam Sunday is
set apart for the bull-lights.

Colonel CJ.ibriolVharton used to toll
an amusing story illustrative of this Latin
habit. Ho was. wajkmg ono Sunday on
the streets of the City of Mexico , in com
pany with a certain Fatheririfliii , a mont
eminent and pious man. Passing the rear
of a church they saw a priest emerge ,
carrying under his arm an uncommon
lively rooster , and jingling in his hand a
pair of spurs. "What do you think of
that , Father ( Jrlfllny" said Colonel Wlnir-
ton , 'Nothing whatever1 answered the
good man ; "it is simply a ciihtom of the
country. No doubt this prior is as duti
ful .mil devout us anv ono of his order.
Hu has said mass. His service is ended.
He has a right to his recreation , and Ids
recreation isnldckun-lighting , an nmusc-
mont which is not regarded heioaseilher
barbarous or unchristian. "
"That is all very well , Father ( Jrillln. "
Colonel \ \ harton rejoined , "but 1 am
pu//.lcd to know what he did with that
big rooster whilst ho wan saying mass. "
"Why , " said Father Grillln , with un
conscious innocence , "he chucked him
under the alter , I Hiijiposo. "
In matters of this sort the practice us
ually runs with the maxim to do in Koine
as Romans do.
Anyhow , Paris was never brighter or
gayer than at the present moment , nor
yet in or i ) destitute of events on which
public interest can fasten Itself. The gov
ernment is largely out of town , and the
city is given over Sunday and all thu rest
of the week to the seekers and lovers of
pleasure. The wicked gardens have
closed their summer season , but most of
them have winter quarters where the
perpetual carnival of the demi-monde
continues unabated. The cafes chantants
in the Champs Klysecs still give their
open-air concerts , but they , too , will
presently move indoors. As for the leg-
itimuto opera-houses and theaters , they
ore crowded nightly. The streets are
filled with sightseers , and such a bla/.o of
electricity was never known before. The
boulevards being , as I said , an endless
line of torchlight processions , bro'en '
only by tlio squares oji pinccs , which
burst SntO h&nliVcs , while over all the
sweetest of autumn weather rains down
JU sunshine and moonlight , whichever
the stranger pleases , for he pays his
money nnd may take his choice.
I spent the whole of last Sunday out of
doors making a tour of the Qnarticr
Latin in the forenoon , taking a turn of an
hour or two about midday iu thu eastern
faubourgs beyond the old Place de la Has-
tile , and closing the evening iu thu Jiois

Sunday Iu America.
Sunday has moro value in this country ,
says tlio Princeton Hoviow , than merely
as a day of rest. It has been n power in
forming American character. It has
pulled a pause to men in whatever pur
suit. It lias kept before men always the
the knowledge of a trroat authority regu
lating their nllairs. Those who were
brought up under the strict law of what
is called thu puritan Sunday sometimes
look buck from early manhood with in
tense dislike to Us iron restraints imposed
on the jubilant spirits of their youth. Hut
as they grow older and more thoughtful
they roeogni/.o at least the priceless disci
pline of the day. its oiled on the forma
tion of mind , its lessoiib that hurt so
much in entering that they are never to
bo forgotten. No wandering life pre
vails to lead them away from the effects
of those days ; nor are thcro among the
sons of men in this world of labor and
pain any who look back with such in
tense yearning for thu homo rest as those
men who. out from the anxieties and ag
onies and sins of mature life , howsoever
gildeit its surroundings , send longings of
heart to the old fircsido. where the bible
was the only Sunday book , and "The
Pilgrim's Progress" was almost the only
week-day fiction. Scorn it as may those
who never know what it was , the puritan
Sunday made men , tlunkii ir men , strong
men , who in thu world looked always to
something beyond the approval of their
follows , felt always that there was some
where someone who know what they
wuro in their hearts. It made a largo
part of w hat js worthy in our institutions
and our men in Now England anil New
Yrork , in Virginia and the Carojinas , and
throughout the growing union. '
