Women Who I'uint.
Women of the upper and middle
classes have far too generally adopted
the harmful and detestable practice of
imparting1 artificial color to their faces
and fictitious whiteness to their nocks ,
according to the Daily Telegraph.
Some oven enamel their shoulders and
arms at leastso wo are told animated
by a feeling akin to the professional
enthusiasm of the provincial actorwho ,
upon being unexpectedly cast for the
part of Othello , promptly blacked him
self from head to foot , in order to bo in
perfect keeping with the important role
assigned to him. The application to
the skin of these red and white com
pounds , the basis of which is too fre
quently some poisonous mineral sub
stance , is a dangerous and silly usage
plainly speaking , a barbarous custom ,
more honored in the breach than in the
observance. Actors and actresses ,
whose faces arc exposed to a strong arti
ficial light whilst they are on the stage ,
are compelled to use pigments in order to
heighten their natural color , as well as
to disguise their individuality , as the
fraying goes , ' "beyond recognition , "
They are , however , for the most part
extremely careful not to apply anything
but vegetable preparations to these portions
tions of their epidermis which have to
undergo superficial treatment in obedi
ence to theatrical exigencies. Many
ladies in private life , we regret to shy ,
are not so particular ; consequently they
ruin their complexions and impair their
health by "beautifying" themselves
with cosmetics and powders , into the
composition of which enter such dele
terious matters as lead and zinc , bismuth
and belladonna. Wo entertain all man
ner of objections to beauty shows , too
numerous to sot down in this place ; but.
if the coining display in Paris should
servo as a practical protest against the
prevalent abuse of "maquillago , " wo
shall unhesitatingly accord to it the expression
of " . ' '
pression "mitigated disapproval.
A Deluge of AVllcl Duclc.
An immense flock of wild ducks
alighted along Mahoning's crook in
this town this morning , being bewild
ered by the heavy snow storm , says a
Punxsutawnoy special to the Pittsburg
Dispatch. The crook was lined with
sportsmen on each side for a distance of
throe or four miles. Hundreds of ducks
wore made to bite the dust. Twenty-
live or thirty of the birds were caught
alive. They would alight in the deep
snow , and , being unable to nriso , were
captured. One "man caught lifteon in
this manner. Another follow gotllfty-
two with a shotgun , and still another
slow twelve with a revolver. Nearly
every citizen of the town could bo soon
this inornini' witli throe or four dead
ducks in Ills hands. It would , perhaps ,
bo understating tno truth to bay that
1,00(1 ( dutiks were killed in the vicinity
of Punxsutawnov this morning , and at
the present time the slaughter is still
going on with unabated vigor. The
ducks are of several varieties. Ono
wild geese was caught alive right in the
center of the town.

A messenger from the Grand Isle , in
the Gulf of Mexico , to-dfiy brought
news of the death of Captain Rigio , a
resident of the Island for many years ,
nnd who id credited with having been
a member of thu famous gang of pirates
who , under Iho command of Pierre and
Jean Lalitto. depredated the Gulf
Const from Texas to Florada , says a
New Orlcandw dispatch to the Globe-
Democrat. After the close of the career
of the Lalittos Rigio became a slave
trndor , and thus amassed a considerable
amount of money with which ho pur
chased the major portion of the island ,
con verting it in to a superb orange grove.
Humor has always had it that largo
sums of money derived by the f.nfHtcs
from their raids were buried on the
islands which sopnruto Uarataria Bay
from the Gulf of Mexico , and Capt.ltigio
is believed to have known the exact
location of the treasure. While talk

LONDON'S DISABLED HO RSES.
M any of Them Eaten by Street
GntnlnR in Sandwiches.
Mr. W. H. Ross , secretary to Harri
son & Barber , horse slaughterers of
London , told a Pall Mull Gazette re
porter the pthcr day that they have
seven slaughter-houses in the metro
politan area , the largest being that in
the York road , Camden Town. They
slaughtered 25,000 horses uyeur. When
a horse broke a limb or sustained other
irremediable injury on the street the
police at once communicated with their
nearest depot. The company had fre
quently been charged with cru
elty in allowing maimed horses
to lie about for hours before
sending men to end their suf
ferings. The truth was they were very'
particular in this respect , and if such
delays occurre d it was through no fault
of theirs. Was horse flesh much used
for foodV Yes , to a considerable extent ,
ho should say. Their charter did not
allow of their selling horseflesh for
food purposes , but there were such es
tablishments in the city. He had him
self oaten Horseflesh in Franco , and at
the company's annual dinner it was
served to the guests , some of whom de
clared they would not have known it
from beef , had they not been told. Fine
fat horses were slaughtered every week ,
horses that were perfectly sound , ex
cept for some accidental injury , and ho
saw no reason why this flesh should not
bo eaten. Ho had often soon street
gamins buy a shco of dried horseflesh ,
place it between two bits of broad , and
eat it as n sandwich ! Of course , most
of the prepared horseflesh passed under
the name of catsmeat , but it seemed in
credible that the cats could consume It
Every part of the horse was put to
some use flesh , hide , hair , hoofs and
bones. Now that ( and Mr. Iloss hold up
a small vial of beautifully transparent
oil ) was horsooll. , Ono.would scarcely
think such oil as that could bo got from
the horso. These othCr bottles con-
teiinod oils of inferior.-quality. They
ivero used for lubricating purposes and
for soap-making. Mont .soaps , nowa
days , contained horse grease.
Armed with a cigar mnd an order
from the secretary of the company , our
reporter , says the Gazette , made his
way to the premises in York road. The
obliging manager said ithoj' had had
only four horses in to-day. But about
seven thousand eight ( hundred were
slaughtered hero nnnurtlly. Most of
animals were cab'bus or tram horses.
The establishment turned out about
twenty tons of horseflesh every week.

They were wrong , for as the rlvor

Deeper grow my love , anil clearer
Seemed her beauties In display.
She grow older , she grow dearer
Dearer ovcry day.
Had I loved her for her bcnuty ,
Had her heart been simply clay ,
Then mifjlit miiio Imvo ceased his worship ;
Hut her truth's resplendent ray
Pilled my soul tind drew mo nearer
To the fount where sweetness luy.
Still the older , still the dearer
Dearer every day.

Do 1 realize it ? Nay.
Her youth's bloom my heart remembers
Years her falthfulnoss portray ,
And it shall bo mliio to cheer her ,
So her winter shall bo May.

I am told of a well-known young lady
hero who is confined to her room mid in
much diuipor of losing her eyesight
from the use of huir dyosnys thoLouls-
villo Post. She was originally a lull ,
handsome brunette , but in the past year
has undergone a complete metamorpho
sis , so far as her hair is concerned , and
until lately appeared ns a most pro
nounced blonde. It is as well known as
any fact can bo that these dyes not only
very frequently cause the loss of sight ,
but of the mind , ana cases are frequent
ly published of women having gone mad
from the use of them. Notwithstanding
this , a great number of the young
women of Louisville nro to-day subject
ing themselves to these terrors for no
other reason than that they are dissat
isfied with the hair nature has given
them. And the worst of it is the custom
is rapidly increasing and there is no
tolling where it will end.
Shopping on Horseback.
The other sight , which struck mo as
bcincr far from commonplace , savs a
Washington letter to the Philadelphia
Times , was that of four or live young
ladies shopping in their riding Imbits.
They were all lino-looking girls and
their habits were well arid stylishly
made ; nevertheless they were not more
city or park riders , for the spattered
condition of their habits showed that
they had had a long ride through a
muddy country. A mule attendant hold
the horses of all as the latlics passed
from store to store and gave their or
ders for supplies to be scut home.
Washington is bo accustomed to strange
varieties os the genus homo that it takes
something quite striking to attract a
second glance ; nevertheless the fair
girls I have mentioned drew many eyes
in their direction. How thoroughly
practical their proceeding was ! Every
one knows how much better one can
shop by personal inspection than in any
other way , and instead of being hamp
ered by the drawbacks which attend
upon getting stores to a remote country
homo these girls had jumped on their
horses and ridden right into Washing
ton's most fiifmiunablo shopping street
to shop at headquarters. Virginia
ladies did this very thing in Martha
Washington's day , but Washington at
that time was a struggling hamlet , not
the wonderful crcam-of-cream places it
now is. _
Only a Woman.
in-flfci for The lice.
Only a frail , delicate woman , hut she
had faced l.ho world in a thirty-years
war , and had been bulToted. jostled and
beaten , only to renew the attaelc in the
struggle for existence.
How many of the hundreds of men
and women who saw her pass daily
along the street over dreamed that be
neath the faded shawl beat a heart as
bravo and true as any found on the
field of Gettysburg or Shiloh. '
Men called her eccentric and odd ,
and women pronounced her a "peculiar
person , " accompanying the remark
with a shrug of the shoulders and a
Strange , is it not , how many volumes
may bo contained in a simple shrug
and a smile ? Many tin innocent porton
has been made to suffer untold tortures ,
has bcon cast aside by friends and
looked upon with disdain by those who
owed ilium nothing but kindness and
love , and finally in the darkness of
night has ended the life , which God
had given , by one umd plunge beneath
the waters , which leave no trace of the
agony which thev have stilled fprovor.
Only a woman ! but many a pale face
lighted up and many a dull eye grow
brighter as that Blender , black-robed
form crossed the threshold bringing
morsels of comfort and sunshine into
homes that knew little save sickness
and want. And in the silent watches
of the night when many a suffering
mortal's lips grow pale with agony that
quiet figure stole hero and there , ad
ministering first a quieting potion ,
then a draught of water , and always a
gentle touch and a kind word.
Her life was spent among the poor
and needy , but oven the children of the
rich , forgetting the contempt for pov
erty which fond parents had taught
them at homo , learned to speak kindly ,
almost lovingly of the quiet woman
whoso gentle hand had often raised
thorn from the pavement where thov
had fallen , and whoso low soft voice had
often soothed their fancied troubles.
Children meeting her on the street in-
fatinctivoly came to her for comfort , nor
did they come in vain. One glance
into those culm blue eyes inspired trust
and confidence at once ,
Only a woman ! but one day the hos
pital received a dying patient , and soon
tno tired hands were crossed over the
pulseless breast and the weary feet
rested from their wanderings. She had
saved the life of a little child , hut the
iron hoofs of the frightened horses had
trampled out the life of ono whoso heartbeat
boat only for others. For years she had
como and gone among thorn a verita
ble angel of mercy save for the weary
years of the civil war , when many u
dying soldier blcHsed with his last faint
breath the sweet-voiced woman , who.
while ministering to their wants , had
sung to them of homo and mother.
Whence she came HOMO could tell , and
none felt that it would bo right to in-
qulro. Sufllciont was it that her pres
ence brought sunshine and joy to all

Word about the most famous "cow-

through Buffalo Bill's Wild West show
ns "Icing of the cowboys. " She inada
her appearance hero twenty-four years
ago , wnon this was a frontier county.
At that tlmo the Indians were making
raids ovcry month , killing and scalp
ing the early settlers and driving off
their stock. The Taylor children ,
Hax and Buck , lost their parents at an
early ago , and Mary was raised by her
aunt , Mrs. Ivos. Inured to the hard
ships of frontier life she soon learned
to take ctu'o of herself , and
and at the ago of fifteen was

ranch of William tSholton , on Grab
Apple creek. She ' took ohargo of eighty
cows , milking 'thirly-flvo daily , and
doing her housework at the same tlmo.
She often had to climb the fence to eave
herself from the horns of some wild
cow. but she always managed finally to
got her rope upon the animal and bring
her to terms. Buck Taylor , king of the
cowboys , has nothing to boast of above
his sister as an export with the rope.
She never ropes on horseback , although
she is a fine rider. She is the oldest of
the three Taylor children , is thirty-five
years old and scarcely loous thirty , al
though the mother of nine children. If
the horses are out of the way she thinks
nothing of walking live miles to this
place for any supplies she may need.
She can tlirow the tie mark and brand
a yearling without help , and keeps an
oyc on the stock , which loaves time to
her husband to look after the farm.
The Evans ranch and farm is about live
miles from this place , and a hearty wel
come always awaits a stranger there.
"Yours Truly. "

women for finding words or phrases
with which to precede the signatures
to their letters , says April "Table

"Yours truly ; " a lessor number , "Sin
