At tlio moutli of Daw son's nllov.

Was thn faded penny bouquet that a flower
Slio 1ms never seen one growing ,
As It's easy to be showing ,
For Its birthplace Is the Dreamland that's

Oh I It pains me In our walking
All the oaths anil shameful talking ,
And the folks that brush tier passing , and the
Hut though evil things may touch her ,
They can never hurt or smurtch her ,
For she turns the dirt to sweetness as a
flower the mould.
Nay , It's not In country places ,
'Mid the liclils and simple faces ,
Out of sight and sound ot evil , that a pure
heart grows :
It Is hero In London city ,
In the sin and shame and pity ;
For the pure heart draws Its pureness from
the wrung U knows.
When my Sally's sweetness found me ,

I was coarse and low and selfish as the beast

But her grace began to win me ,
And my heait wtis chanted within mo.

Now York Star : The next thing that
troubles the crank is either the garter or
the corset. Ono ho insists upsets the
Jungs nnd the backbone , and the
digestion nnd the eyesight this is the
corset and the other ho will assure you
stopt the circulation of the blood. Yet
there are women who , with .their spinal
columns out of order , their lungs
squeezed In , their digestion broken up ,
the circulation of their blood stopped ,
manage to live on to a good old ago un
troubled by n day's sickness. My ex
perience has been that the women who
liavo fads about their underwear are
usually three-quarters sick in body
nnd the other quarter sick in mind.
i Now , n well-fitting corset doesn't hurt
1 anybody's spine. They are slightly open
1 nt the back , with only the silk lacing
coining against it ; they hold the bust in
place , support the skirts , nnd are not
* long enough to interfere with digestion.
If a corset is unhealthy , why in the name
of common scnso do the women who decline
clineto wear them invariably take some
1 fclill'oned bodice In their place ? If the
\ corset is unhealthy , so is the bodice , for
if is tight enough to hold you In , then it
is performing the duty of a corset in the
1 most awkward manner possible. As to
garters , the average women doesn't
. wear thorn , not because they are unhealthy -
healthy , but because suspenders hold her
Blockings up better. Then the old idiot
talking nbout women's clothes usually
ends til > by n' long dissertation on the
nd vantages of clothes being swung from
the shoulder ? , nnd usually convinces his
audience , unless they are- members of his
mutual ml mi ration society , of how little
lie knows about comfortable clothes as
far aa women are concerned.
Wliy Girls are CoqucttiHh.

Graduates" have their own triumphs
triumphs neither few nor insignificant :
but over the lives of men their triumphs
have not extended. In the drawing-room
the despised coquette is queen legnant ,
nnd them the pule student , the class
room's glory , is simply nowhere. The
coquette knows her power and revels in
it. In soli-defense the exercise of such a
power has been thrust upon her. She is
not or was not-always heartless. She
knows who bettort that this light
trilling Is ignoble It is not the life she
would have chosen had the choice been
given her ; but there is magic in it. The
sense of swav is delightful to her ; the
sweets of adufation , like a subtle poison ,
intoxicate their victim with a transient
rapture , and she knows .that while she is
young nf I has health und gayety she can
Iiold her own. And afterwards ? But
why dream of the stormy morrow ? To
day is fair. Why trouble as to what the
end may bo ? In the meantime she will
laugh and llirt and bo fitful and charm
ing , vivacious , djoamy , cruel , kind ; she
will retract and repel , draw hearts to
her , whose homage her own levity will
quickly alienate ; she will be wondered
at , censured , admired , and , perchance ,
loved ; but until the sun shall dawn on
that unknown country where men are
constant , leal and true , the land whore
unobtrusive kindliness is dearer to them
than feigned ( latteries and bewitching :

Woman's Place In the World.
In a recent lecture Mrs. A. M. Boechor
said : " \\horois woman's place in the
world ? Whore is it not ? Where wrong
is to be righted ; whore evil is to bo over
come ; where ignorance is to bo enlight
ened ; where Inspiration is to Hash light
upon darkness ; whore intuition is to point
the way : where spirit is to interpret the
latter ; where endurance is demanded ;
where sympathy is to heal ; where love is
to rule ; where God Is to speak ; nyo.whcro
hand , or head , or heart can achieve
there let woman be , for it is her placo. "
The Value of a Helpmeet.
When a man becomes a widower ho
soon learns what the financial worth of
his wife was to him. When ho is com
pelled to hire the food cooked , the gar
ments made , the washing and ironing
done , ho finds that about ono-halt of his
income is required to moot those outgoes.
Who saved this expense before ? Lot tlio
cold lingers and silent lips in the grave
yard bear testimony. The family purse
should be as accessible tp a faithful wife
ns to the husband. What man woula
consent to become a partner in a com
pany in which his brother partner should
alone have control of. the company's
funds ? There Is no ono thing more de
grading and depressing to a hardworking
ing wife than to feel that she must beg
like a tramp for every cent she spends
beyond her food , which as truly belongs
to her as though she earned it as a do
mestic or shop girl.
Woman Only Wishes to Look Pretty.
It is no now thing for men to set them
selves in judgment upon woman's dress.
In 1550 Jeremy Taylor found in the sub
ject food for suggestion as to the degree
of thinness of clothing a woman might
decently wear and as to tlio proper
amount of neck and arm she might leave
uncovered ; and John Corry , in 1802 , ad
vised simplicity of dress , which he reck
oned second only to modesty of manners.
Numerous other men of mind have seen
lit to appoint themselves critics and pass
judgment upon the feminine fashions or
customs of the day. But there is uo evi
dence that their words of warning have
over been heeded. It is woman's nature
to make herself look as pretty as she can ,
and every now foible of fashion is eagerly
soi/.cdupon as certain to have the coveted
cll'eet. No doubt some of these fashions
are monstrous. No doubt they are utter
ly antagonistic to all rules of art and
laws of proportion. No doubt the women
of the world need education upon these
points as well as upon the principles of
art. When such education is generally
achieved women will undoubtedly dress
better ; but until then , or until man shall
bo ready to share his politics and his pan
taloons with the weaker vessel , which
happy state of affairs may evolve some
wonderful fashion upon which the lords
of creation shall set the seal of their ap
probation , and which shall know no
change , let us have peace. It is woman's
inalienable right to bedeck her person as
suits her fancy. She will not be likely
to give it up.

BOSTON , March 10. [ Correspondence of
'tho BKE. ] There Is , perhaps , no city in
this country which has such a complete
system of public lectures as Boston. We
not only have the lecturers , but what Is
more , our people appreciate them. I
heard the other day that James Russell
Lowell was to give a series of free lec
tures in thu Lowell iustituto course , on
the "Pro-Shakspcarian Dramatists. "
Tickets wore to bo given out on Friday
morning at 8 o'clock. I arose earlier
than usual , resolved to take a morning
constitutional up Boylston street , and
avail myself of the opportunity to got a
ticket. 1 reached the vicinity of the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
about 8 o'clock , and a longer line of men
and women I never saw , especially at
such an hour. In the line were men nnd
women apparently from all grades of
society. There wore
FKESH AND wnu.-Fnn ,
mlddle-agod men. and dignified and ma
tronly women. There wore young men
by the score , some well-dressed , some
poorly dressed , some tine-looking , some
plain , but all intelligent. There wore
young ladies of the same sort , but more
of them would como under the head of
good-looking. There were some who
looked as lithoyliad turned out earlier
than their want. Others were on their
way to work , with their little omnipresent
"lunch at thootrico" bag in their hands :
The morning was damp and chilly and
the crowd was naturally not very
jolly. 1 walked toward the
tail end of the line , the sub
ject of many well-chosen remarks , whlc h
did not lend to increase my good humor.
The follow ahead of mo , who was also
hunting the end of the line , amused him
self and the crowd by pretending to
count the people. If ho saw anyone
looking particularly "tired , " ho would
raise lushngorandsay , " 3,001 , 2 , 8 , " etc. ,
which ho seemed to think was very
funny. Ho came to a place in the line
where a cart had just wheeled through
and loft a small open space. Several la
dies had lust stepped into this space ,
thereby taking unfair advantage of those
behind them. A younc fellow , who knew
our friend , said : "Hullo , Bill , stop inhere
hero with those ladles.
"THKHE'S LOTS OP ROOM. "
'No I haven't quite gall enough to do
that , " said Bill , and ho rubbed the re
mark in with semi-linndish smile , whioh
every ono oujovcd but the ladies.
Well , we walked and walked and still
the line did not end. It must have boon
half a milo long. My friend turned and
proposed that we go to the head of thn
line and get our tickets on check. Ten
minutes brought us to the ticket ollico. A
burly policeman stood by the window to
preserve order. There was ono peculiar
point about this policeman. Ho spat in
cessantly. There was , so to speak , ono
continuous stream irom his mouth to
the ilpor. My friend got as near
the window as ho could , and the
"cop" rudely pushed him away ,
emphasizing the act by expectorating a
quarter section of lung. Very soon my
friend stepped too close again , and the
"cop" advanced with another disgusting
"hoick-pstchoo , " whereupon my friend
asked him if he could swim. Tlio crowd
roared and the "cop" immediately lirod
my friend into the street. A scrimmage
followed at theHwindow in which I suc
ceeded in getting two tickets. It is need
less to say who got the "second" ticket.
Uo wo have anirlomomacs in Boston ?
Well , I should think. In spite of the talk
about them and the fun at their expense ,
they seem to grow in numbers
nnd manners. Ton can iisll/ tell
ono. Notice a yonng man
( the word "young" means anywhere from
twenty-live to forty ) who Is dressed In the
height of Kngli.sh fashion. First you
notice his walk. Ho walks with his feet
and not with his legs. His knees are a
trlllo bent , and remain In that condition.
As ho puts ono foot down ho rises on the
too of the other and kicks himself for
ward ono step. A succession of such
steps or rather short jumps , gives him
the up and down motion of a man on
horseback. It Is ungraceful and any
thing but easy. Ho wears the latest
style of trousers , striped and boggy , with
a sharp crease bcforo and behind each
log. These creases do not
result from thu garments lying
for untold months folded among
piles of "ready made" clothing ,
By no means. That crease is the result
of very careful sponging nnd pressing
and stretching In ouo of Hamilton s
English Punt stretchers. Under his largo
cheeked Scotchy looking coat is a fancy
vest , cut very low , displaying a colored
shirt bosom with wldo stripes running
across , not lengthwise. If those stripes
were anything but horizontal it would bo
a direct insult to the kingdom of Great
Tiir.N crmns THE COU.AH
of immaculate whiteness , turned squarely
down nt the points and done up with the
"domestic linish" the glossy
finish being altogether too com
mon. Then there Is the loud
nnd equally large four-in-hand tie , with
n delicate pin stuck in at ono side. On
the back of his heed Is a little light brown
English derby , shaped HKO a good-siiod
tea cup with thu sides llattoncd a little.
You see I haven't mentioned an over
coat , although thn winter is not yet
passed. Well , the fact is , these follows
don't wear overcoats unless there is a
blizzard or a sprclally cold snap. Eng
lish is mild , don'chcr know , nnd the }
must suit their apparel to the caprices of
his Britannic probship. Thou , again , it
rains in England , you know , and they
must turn their trousers up at the bottom
to keep them out of the mud. The
worst incongruity of the anirlo-maniau's
dress is the covert coat. In England this
is a light overcoat used to ride horse
back In and is made very short accord
ingly , but our gilded youth ridiculously
appropriate it to street wear. Its a bad
bad mistake , but it can't bo remedied
now ; its fashion scorns to bo established
hero. Wo see n young man bouncing
down the street with a covert coat so
short that the tails of his frock bob out
serenely from beneath It. Then in the
back of the covert coat are two slits in
stead of one , so that the back part of the
saddle will not Interfere wltn the gnr-
mont , while many fellows here who wear
these coats perhaps never rode horseback
more han twice in their lives.
THE X.ITTLK HELMET CAP
has become quite the thing now. It is
made in all colors and In all shapes , and
although far from beautiful it is alto
gether comfortable nnd handy for a
"round about" cap. But hero again our
English imitators are in error , since En
glish gentlemen have discarded the hel
met and the lower classes in England
L T9 taken U up'on account of its cheap'
neM , comfprt and durability.
Gloves and cane I have not mentioned ,
but you must know that they are botti
worn. The gloves , are of no particular
sort , but the cane has ceased to bo A
cano. It is now n club. The old
buckhorn handles and sllvor-hcadt ]
are Improper in the extreme , while the
trunk and roots of an English tree have
taken their pluco. This club Is no longer
used as a walking-slick. It Is grasped
near the middle and carried thus , with
the head hanging down behind or stickIng -
Ing up In front , a sort of regal wand , sig
nificant of the power of her royal high *
Such is the external make-up of thd
nnglomanlao. There Is nothing partlcu'
larly harmful about him , neither is ho of
any particular benefit ; but he Is hero and
we must put up with him.FKANZ
FOR MAN AND BEAST.
