Dr. Boflrtoo , of London , h responsible
for u slutomont which is at once novel
anil BurprishifT. Ho declares that the
chances of dark women obtaining hus-
bandK nro to tlioso of fair women In the
proportion of throe to twoand that this
( . oiiclimion is proved by statistics Cor-
tninlv this * is in opposition to the Ron-
oral idea , upon the subject. For every
dark heroine of a novel tlioro nro
twenty fnir ones ; while , although n few
pools may hnvo simp tlio praises of dark
beauties , those who hnvo celebrated the
chunns of fnir onoa nro vastly more
numerous. Among the lower classes of
Kngllsh , Indeed , there is n poneral
projudieo against dark hatred
women , it being- fixed idea -that
they possess infinitely worse tempers
than fair women. Were Dr. Buddoo's
theory correct , thnt tliroo brunettes
marry to two blondes , It would certainly
bo found that almost every unmarried
Indy past the ago of thirty belong to the
latter category ; which is certainly not
the case. At tlio same time , the fact
that the hair of the people of this-ishind
is becoming distinctly darker than it
was is one that cannot bo denied. Per
sona who ran look back half n century
will bo ready to admit the change in
this respect. For every red-haired per
son to be seen now , ton would hnvo been
mot with lifty years buck ; and if the
change continues at the.samp rate , in
another Imlf century rod-haired people
will hnvo become so uncommon thnt n
red-hnirod lady will bo one of the most
nttraclivo ligurcs in n country show.
ThcChlnnso Woman' ? Feet.
Chang Tae in the Philadelphia. Press :
The feet of Chinese women are made
small in u very simple manner. Tno
process begins at the ago of five or six
years. The foot is tightly bound , so
that the circulation of blood coaxes and
the lees are crushed together. The
bnndtigod foot is inserted in a short ,
narrow-pointed- , in the heels of
which n block of wood-is placed , so that
the girl appears to bo standing on her
toes. Sometimes bandages nro wound
around over the shoo. Tlio foot , of
course , grows smaller , but , in consequence
quence of the shrinking of the skin ,
seems round and plump. Stockings arc
not worn. If everything goes all right
the foot assumes the desired form in
two or three years , being gradually
shrivelled. up. The poor girls
often have to undergo great pain.
Spmctimes the skin und llcsh burst
under the terrible pressure , nnd occa-
sionnlly incurable injuries result. It is
dangerous to hasten the process , nnd
especially so when at the beginning of
the operations the girls nro beyond the
usual ago. Not infrequently the at
tempt is made with fifteen or sixteen-
year-old daughters. In such cases the ,
process is ditlluult , for the foot hns al
most reached its full growth , nnd the
pain is unbearable.
The solos of the shoes are from three
to four inches thick. The girl appears ,
therefore , to be tailor than she really
is. itnd walks with un uncertain and
affected gait.
This practice of deforming the feet
prevails only among the upper class-is
nnd tlioso who affect the manners and
customs of their superiors in rani ; .
Among the lower clasans. where the de
formity would unfit a girl for necessary
labor , the foot nro allowed to grow nnt-
urnlly. This ostnblishes n sort of caste
sign. The father of a tiny-footed
muidon will not permit her to marry a
man whoso mother or sisters have not
artificially diminutive feet. The writ
ten law * of the land do not refer to this
custom in anyway ; it would bo much as if
American legislation should deal with
tight lacing.
Tlio Peculiar Ways or Woman.
At n meeting of a dozen Indies the
other day to organize a lodge of the
King's Daughters , the utter unfamiliarity -
iarity of women with parliamentary
law , or oven with the general iden of
organization , WMSsomewhnthumorously
illustrated. After they had bat looking
at each other a trillo nervously for
awhile one of thorn said :
"Well , hero wo nro. What nra wo
going to do ? "
"O , dear , " haid another. "I don't
know , but let's do something. "
At last n young lady suggested they
might try not to say mean things about
other people until next meeting , any
way. Everybody thought that would bo
nice. Juntas they wore about adjourn
ing , two hourri later , n InUy exclaimed :
"O , I hupposo wo ought to have a
president. "
"Why , of C3urdJ wo ought , " said an
"I don't Hupposa nnyl'ody will object
to Mrs. Hrown for president , " said a
third , "lot's hnve.her. "
' All right , let's , " echoed the rest.
And nojjody objected to names proposed
for becrotary and treasurer , either.
A few days later the fnir secretary
consulted n guntlmnan acquaintance as
to how she should write up the minutes
of the mooting.
"Well , you ought to begin by saying
who was chairman of the meeting. "
" didn't chairman"
"Why , wo hnvonny
baid the girl.
"Who then put the motions before
the mooting ? " uskod the gentleman.
"Oh , wo didn't have uny motion.
Somebody would say she thought such n
thing would bo nice , nnd nil the others
would say they thought o too. That
was all. "
"If that was the case , " Inughod the
gentleman , "you would have to tot it
down in the minutes thnt bitch and
mich muuburos wore informally ap
proved. Rut you must btatc clearly
that the club was organized nnd write

An Knoentrlc Woman.
Miss Agnes Murray , of Bridgeport ,
Conn. . It n most eccentric woman. She
is posscbsod of n large fortune , and she
spends her ineoir.o in an extremely cur
ious way. For instance , n ynar ngo the
bought n house in Bridgeport for 435 , '
000 , nnd immediately closed it , allowing-
no one to live in it , though many desir
able tenants nrasonteil tlicinsolvos. She
is fond of lulling what n belle she \yus

the British minister atajtate bull in

TIic Work of Wine.
Apropo * of the tsrrib'.e work of in torn *
poranro , says a writer In the Scranton
( Pa. ) Times , I hoard a pathetic , nnd at
the same time an interesting story , not
long Blnco , of how , by the acquired
habit of visiting fashionable restaurants
nnd slpjiing champagne ft handsome nnd
highly educated young woman became
a hopeless drunkard. The womnn in
question is now abandoned by her hus-
bancl and family nnrt she lives only for
the pleasure of prolonged periods of In
toxication. Lessthnn two years ago she
was beloved and respected by all who
know her nnd her devoted husband was
onlv hnppv when in her presence ; but
to-day no' is broken hearted , and goes
about his business in a way thnt incU-
ralcs thnt hii roaion is being gradually-
bnt surely dethroned. The young wlfo
who has caused FO much sorrow formed
tlio acquaintance of a female friend
soon nftor she wa mar
ried , who frequently took her
lo lunch nt apromlnontrcstaurantwhon
upon shopping expeditions. Her friend ,
in order to show her hospitality , invar
iably ordered wine. and. nt flr.t , the
young wife flatly refused lo taste itbut ,
when told it was fashionable to sip the
bovcrago at such places , she relented
nnd did as sire was iris.truclod. In a lit
tle while she had developed such a taste
for the sparkling liquor that her friend
became frightened , mil It was lee lato.
The young wife lintl acquired an appo-
.tito that could not bo controlled. In
vniiflior husband and parents pleaded
with her , hut her ears were dent to
their pathetic entreaties. They bore
with her sharno until they wore com
pelled to turn her from their luxurious
homo ; not , however , until every effort
hnd boon made to-induco her to reform.
The anguish of the young woman's par
ents beggars descriptionand only those
who have experienced shame nnd sorrow
row in their worst forms can begin to
understand tbo tribulallonsjof Iho sorrowing
rowing couple , The companion who
induced her lo lake the first draught is
a mental wreck from the Intense suffer
ings she has experienced in witnessing
the young wife's downfall.
The Young Doctor Coulcln'r Vaccinate
Maidenly modesty and female-nntty
lu\vo had a sharp . .struggle among the
young ladies in tnis'city , and especially
at the fashionable schools , since the
small-pox began , says the Philadelphia
Record. The young women dread the
disease , which , oven if not fatal , might
prove deadly to their physical charms ,
and vaccination w xs therefore welcomed
by all. But the difficulty was that low
of the young ladies , with visions of re
ceptions next winter before them when
they would appear in Iqw-cut corsage
and sleeveless bodices , cared lo have
the disfiguring marks placed upon their
arms. In consequence there has boon a
great demand , especially at the fash
ionable boarding schools in Iho city , for
elderly physicians to whoso care the
young lading could submit themselves
for vaccination.
As they would not be vaccinated upon
the arm and they did not care to have
the pimple on the end of the nose , it
has generally been decided by the fash
ionable female to have the delicate operation -
oration performed on the calf of the leg.
This required the services of the elderly
practitioners , as tholadicis wore loth to
submit to the gaze of the youthful doc
tors. A lady who manages a fashionable
boarding school near Broad nnd Locust
street ? hist week determined to have nil
of the young ladies in her charge vacci
nated. Those who wore boarders at Iho
school were to 1x > vaccinated by the
physician , an elderly and well-known
practitioner , who has usually been
called in to attend such ills as school
girls are heir to. The young
ladies all protested against the
marking of their arms ; and
it was determined , after solemn confer
ence , that each one should bo vaccin
ated upon the calf of the leg. This was
entirely salisfaclory unlil Iho day ap
pointed for the operation. Instead
of coming himself , the doctor
sent his assistant , a very young man
with a blonde mustache , whom the girls
declared looked "just too sweet. " There
was a hurried oonsultalion of the ladies :
"Never ! " "I'll take the small-pox
first ! " ' 'Ho shall not vaccinate mo ! "
Such wore the exclamations of the girls.
The young doctor was compelled to
retire , and the kindly old gentleman
who is his preceptor was soul for. The
girls Ihcn submit ! cdAvilhout a murmur.
A well known physician said yester
day : "I doubt if there is a woman
above fifteen in the city who will sub
mit to a vaccination on the arm. That ,
of course , is natural , and is feminine. "
Talt About the "Weaker" Sex.
Society women nowadays thoroughly
realize the importance of good health
in the inalrimonial market , and Now
York women are to-day much stronger
and hcallhior , as a rule , than the mo n
are , says Iho Now York Mail. A few
minutes on Broadway , between four
teenth street and Thirty-second , on tlio
weil side of Iho street , of a Saturday
afternoon , will demonstrate the truth
of Ibis assertion. The women , as a
rule , are fresh of face , creel of carriage ,
their heads are well poised and their
arms well rounded. Their figures are
'trim and they walk along with a strong
and regular stride. The men , on the
other hand , are too often hallow and
loose-jointed , flat chested and hollow-
eyed , and certainly but little else can
bo extracted when the late hours usually
kept by Ihcm are considered nnd it is
remembered how many dozen of cigar-
ollcs they smoke during Iho day and
how many deadly cocklaila are imbibed.
European Women.
In a bouquet of European women the
ViolmcHo can he at once distinguished ,
says Oscar Wild's ' Woman's World.
She has a charm , a distinction , all her
own. Lc s reserved in manner than
the average English woman , and less
artificial than the Parisian , she makes
an almost ideal hostess. Generally
pretty , always graceful , and drchsod
with a chic which she has herself in
vented , the Viennese is , perhaps ,
studied lo most advantage in her own
drawing room. Watch her as she moves
quietly about among her guests , charm
ing to all aliiv'o , forgetting no one , letting
ting no detail escape her watchful oye.
Snobbishness , the darling vice of the
Londoner , its unknown to the dweller in
the Austrian capital , unless the unpar

Iw counted under Uiln head. Many na
tionalities combine in the Viennese. In
her wo find the idealistic Hungarian ,
the sensuous Slav , the practical Ger
man , the imia : sionol : Italian nnd the
languid Oriental , for all thuso diverse
nationalilins are fused in tiie Austrian.

A Millionaire's Beginning.
A story wns published not Jong ago
that Congressman William L. Scott , of
Erie , was once n fish peddler. An old
nnd distinguished citizen of Mr. Scott's
town says It is not true. The democrat
ic boss of Pennsylvania , who smokes
cigars thnt cost only SI.40 apiece , began
his career as a page in the halls of con
gress. Afterward he became n ware
house clerk lor General Road of Eric ,
and in 18-r > 7 ho wont Into the warehouse
business himself. At thnt time railroad
stocks were low , nnd ho invested. It was
the beginning of his present colossal
fortune , estimated at 520,000,000. Mr.
Scott docs not dress like n rich num.but
wears nn ordinary cheap suit of salt and
pepper colored tweed. His hnt is n
Derby , not always carefully brushed ,
and worn rather low down on his fore
head. Ho walks somewhat stooped-
shouldercd nnd is palo'and consumptive
looking. Ho hnsthe uir of n man pre
occupied a look that Atlas might have
had after carrying the world around on
his shoulders n few days.
One OH Thaddous Stevens.
Boston Herald : Thaddcus Stevens
had two weaknesses , nn inconquornble
love for poker and n heart so tender
thnt ho would give his Inst cent to relieve
lievo distress. Ltotwocu the two ho wns
usunlly very fnr from "flush. " Ono
night ho had n run of luck at curds ,
cnine out winner to the amount of an
oven $100 , and when his checks were
cashed ho received n crisp now bill of
that denomination. Next morning he
went to the capitol nt the usual time ,
and was there waylaid by n soldier's
widow , who had n piteous tulo of sorrow
and suffering to relate. Stevens put
his hand in his pocket , found thu 31(10 (
bill it wns nil he had and handed it
to the astonished widow. A fellow-
member was standing by who had seen
the game the night before , and know
where the money came from. Stevens
caught his eye , Kiniled , and. by way of
explanation , haid : "God moves in a
mysterious way His wonders to per
form. "
Colonel Ingrraoll'ti Phrases.
Colonel Ingorsoll has become famous
for coining popular phrases nnd fram
ing cpigrammntic sentences. Hit * ref
erence to Mr. Ulnino as the "plumed
knight" when ho presented the numo of
the Mnino slntosnian to the national re
publican convention in 1870 , was at once
taken up by the party and became a
rallying cry for them when their favor
ite wns nominated four yeard later.
Colonel Ingoi'fcoll'o eulogy nX | > n Roscoe
Conkling shows that ho has lost none of
ills originality. One nf the gems of
thnt address IH the sentence : "lie had
the pride of n prince and the forfimo of
n peasant. " Another is the distinction
between pride nnd vanity. The orator
admitted that Conkling was proud , hnt
declared that ho wan not vain , Ho
continued : ' 'Vanity rests upon the
opinion of others pride on our own.
The source of vanity U from without
of pride from within. Vanity ia n vmno
that turns , a willow thut bends with
every hreo/.o jn-ido is the oak that de
fied the otorin. One is cloud the other
Ono is weakness the other strength. "

tinction U logically , clearly nnd pictur

/in Ancciloto of Wobstor.
Ono of the very best anecdotes of
Daniel Webster , in illustrative of that
exulted ai.d exalting character which
liis mind pre-eminently po&E > obttod , was
told by the late St. George Tucker
Campbell , of Philadelphia , himself n
lawyer of great and dcburved distinc
Mr. Campbell said thnt having been
retained in n somewhat famous case at
the time with Mr. Webster , who wns
dotatncd by his senatorial duties ut
Washington , the conduct of the cno
through the preliminaries devolved
unon him , it being agreed that Mr.
\Vebstor should uolivor the Closing ar-
gumcnt. "But , " snid Mr. Campbell ,
"day nftcr day went by without bring
ing the great expounder , until the very
Inst day before that on which the clos
ing argument wns to bo delivered , nnd I
wns in despair : I was sitting in my room
at the hotel debating with myself what
to do , when Mr. Webster was an
nounced. After tbo little civilities had
passed ho asked me to loll him about
the oneo.
'Why , Mr. Webber , ' said I , 'is it pos
sible you know nothing of the case ? '
'Nothing whatever , ' said ho. 'Toll me
about it. '
"I wns utterly dumbfounded , nnd
pointing lo a pile of testimony a foot
deep on the table , J snid : 'How am I to
convoy all that to you in the little time
that is left usV
"Ho snid : "Oh , never mind details.
Give mo the case generally and the
salient points. "
"Ho sat down at the table opposite mo
nnd I gnyo him a rapid synopsis of the
case , which took two hours and more.
Ono point I especially called his ntton-
tion to. The opposing counsel were
bent on securing a continuance of the
case , while our interests demanded nn
immeditilo decision. As a renson
against granting the continuance I
cited the fact that the other side had
protracted the cross examination
excessively , occupying six days in the
cose of ono witness.
"Mr. Webster bade mo good night
nftor I hnd concluded nnd went to bed.
The next morning bo came into court
ns aorono and majestic ns Jove himself ,
while I wna nervous nnd apprehensive
to the last degree. Ho began his ad
dress to the court with thnt slow , ponderous
derous gravity that was so character
istic of him in the outset of his forensic
efforts , then gradually warmed and
quiokenod. I listmiod spell-bound , for
in essence it wns nothing but what I had
pumped into him in the two hours and
a half tulle of the day before. But now
transmitted nnd transformed. To give
you un iden of the transformation I will
tnlvo the point to which 1 have alluded.
He rendered it thus :
"They ask for n continuance ! Why ,
may it please the court , they have taken
at this hearing ns much time in the
cross examination ns it took tlio
Almighty to create the univcr&o ! "
Thnt represents the difference be
tween his speech nnd my talk ; my .sim
ple six days grew to the colossal 'figure
1 have described under the magical
touch of his genius and this instance
was. characteristic of the whole.

mnn wns very fond of having wild an
imals kept loose iu the garden or court
yard of his place. On entering the
"Moshwa" or court yard of the palace n
lion would bo seen unfettered , crouch
ing , or , as it happened , two panthers
have passed near to mo , prowling about
the Shorilllan garden. Tlio master of
the house related to mo thut Mului
Aberahman , mounted on a magnificent
white charger , happened ono day to
pans through the court of the palace ,
when a lion which his majcbtv was ac
customed to stop and caress sprang up
the side of his horse and placed his
paws on the knees of the sultan. His
majesty reigned in his steed , which
snorted and reared. The sultan showed
no alarm , and did not , biiid the master
ol the house , change a muscle of his
comitonnm'o , but turning to the Icuiil
of the mcshwar , or chief officer of the
court , nnd putting his hand on the head
of'tlie lion tostroke it , inquired : "How
many pounds of meat nre given to the
lion per tiny ? " The olllcer staled the
quantity. ' 'Lot the lion have ten more
pounds , " said his majesty. The lion's
petition being granted it quiolly drop-
lied olT his majetity'dhorbO and lay down
quite nncificd. "These animals , " ob-
