The concert by Maximilian Dick,

accounted a thorough artist, but he is
eminently popular. Ho. has a mastery
of his instrument and draws erory sound
iu nature from its strings, from the
Eoftett warbling- of'birds to the roar -of

I havo no mind to harrow up the
minds of my readers with any explica
tion of the miseries and mysteries that
confront the average housekeeper in the
daily maintenance of a simple but com
fortable existence for her family; as for
herself, an existence at all seems a strug
gle which at timtsshe would gladly give
over. One might define a heroine as Ihs
average American woman who dees her
own housekeeping. But rome hint of
tho unnatural and unhappy state of af
fairs existing at present nuy bodrduced
from tho consideration of two economic
facts. First, woman is, by nature, a
home-founder and a home-maker. This
is net intended as an assertion of per

tific fact. It was woman not man
who opened the industrial world; was

not man, who made the first fire, and
the first utensils for cooking, and tho
first rude tools for industrial ends. AH
her activities clustered about the hearth
and ministered to the home. It tho wo
man and tho work had not reacted upon
each other so that, today, women should
be by nature home-makers and home
