It is a land of corn and wine that borders
this turbid river, but its fruits are not
gathered without its women. They want

sings the loudest in the vintage who soon

Forty cents is a man's hire, with two
quarts of the poorer wine. And when the
rustic lover has married his sweetheart

Between these and the beaten track the
peasant women's sickles are always busy,
for these little margins are public property
and supply grass for tho summer and hay
against the winter time. You will meet
her, too, with an enormous weight of wood
on her head, a load that a man could not
carry, dead sticks picked up in the forest.
Or you will pass her digging in the little
patch of vines and potatoes that every
peasant owns and leaves his wife to plant
and hoe and harvest, while he hires out to
a vineyarder. This is her morning her
housekeeping and at 1 o'clock she, too, is
ready for half a day's hiring to pull weeds
or train vines. And withal she bears many
children and finds life not less pleasant
than women of other lands whose tasks
press not so heavily. Cor. New York Com

Clever draughtswomen in various sec

Bell at high rates for advertising purposes.
If they succeed in hitting upon a novelty
adapted to some particular trade a quick
and handsome profit is the result. A
couple of sisters who were left entirely de
pendent on their own exertions happened
upon a combination scheme. One of the
girls possessed a knack for rhyming, whilo
the other was ready with her pencil. Hav
ing neither money nor influence, their con
dition seemed pretty serious, when as by
inspiration the eldest sister sketched a
Oceing army of bugs pursued by a bottle
having tho wings and head of a seraphim
and carrying a flaming sword.
It was not much of a picture after all,
but a firm bought it of her and asked to
Bee other designs. This first encourage
ment set her wits to work, and she soon
turned out a number of effective sketches.
They were nearly all accepted, and when
tho youngor girl supplemented tho draw
ings with odd and catchy bits of verso
they were paid double for their work.
For two years these young women have

The Ilnppy Woman.
I know a woman whose lot in life is ono
of the pleasantest, and far abovo the aver
age. She has a loving husband command
ing a comfortable income, onoof thoswect
est babies in tho world, and a home that is
a perfect picture of artistic beauty and do
mestic comfort. Yet she is discontented
because just opposite to her homo lives a
woman whose fortune borders close to a
million dollars, left her by her husband. Sho
has her retinue of sen-ants nnd gorgeous
livery, and everything in the world appar
ently to make her happy. Is she?
Listen to her own words, as told to a
member of my family: "I suppose the
world regards me as a happy woman; but
It docs not know how I suffer! What is
my money to mo when at the strike of the
midnight hour I awake, as I often do, and
Ptretch fort h my hand in vacancy for the
form which lies in the graveyard, or turn
to the crib in search of the little form that
lira with him! I tell you, my dear, money
is a mockery when your heart longs for
companionship and for sympathy!" But
yet her neighbor across the way, who at
night needs only to stretch forth her hand
to touch the shoulder of her protector, and
hears the soft breathing of her infant child,
envies this woman her happiness I Ladies'
Make Womanhood Your Specialty.
Homomania is a straw, we are told, that
shows the trend of feeling nnd ambition
among women of all grades. Having asked
for and obtained tho inch of equality, we
will be content with nothing short of the
ell of acknowledged superiority. Satirists
point to such indices of popular sentiment
hs incident to the history of all emanci
pated serfs. To the lover of womankind
these telltale floats bring pain and uneasi
ness. If woman would bo truly great she
must be great in a womanly way, and
within the pale of the sex she reverences
too fondly to risk confounding it with an
other. The pathway to success In this age la

Tha Modern Girl Matt Know Everything.
The conditions of modern life in thia
great and growing country nre fetich that
the average American girl of more favored
circumstances may step from the school
room, generally before she is 20 years old,
Jsto a station where the demands of domes-
tic, social, cliu.nta.uit: aua practical alTairs
leave her littlo time for further systematic
study, and yet tax every resource of her
store of knowledge and acquirement. If
then she is confronted with subjects of
which she is ignorant, but with which she
should have acquired at least a speaking
acquaintance while at school, she may
justly reproach her teachers that they have
adopted the mistaken policy of educating
a girl who was to leave school at 20 on the
plan requiring a continuance at school till
at least 23. Though many have doubted
tho possibility to provide for this ac
tive and proper demand without com
promise which is unfair to thoroughness,
and which will not result in superficiality,
I am justified in having adopted and for
many years defended such a plan by the
highest authority among the educators of
modern times. Mrs. Sylvanus Reed in
If a child has any sensibility scolding

For Children's Sparo Hours.
A pleasant pastime for children origi
nated in the active minds of some Kansas
youngsters, and was called "The Children's
Industrial Exposition." In vacation days
six littlo ones, between the ages of 7 and
12, worked busily with their hands on all
sorts of industries with which they were
acquainted, and dolls' houses and furni
ture, clothing, egg shell vases, ladders,
pumps, small herbariums consisting of
small collections of plants neatly labeled,
leaves of trees and specimens of forest
woods, chicken feather fans, small tables,
benches, boxes, boats and drays in wood

Be Careful of Tour Broom.
"With a little care brooms can bo kept
equal to new for a long time, as, with
everything else, they must bo well treated
to do their best work.
Always scald a new broom before it has
ever been used. Pour boiling water all
over tho broom where it is attached to the
handle; then stand the broom up to dry,
with the end of the handle resting on tho
floorand the straws uppermost. This treat
ment renders the broom soft and pliable,
making it wear better.
When a broom is not in use never stand
it with thestaws next the floor, for it tends
to make the broom one sided and spoils its
shape. Rather stand the broom so it will
rest on the end of tho handle, with tho
Btraws lightly leaning npinst the wall; or
better still, pierce a hole through the top
of tho broom handle with a red hot nail,
run a string through it and tie in a loop to
hang tho broom up by.

up clear of tho floor when it is put away.
Color Daring Mourning.
There is much to be said ngalnst the cus

No Rocking for Baby.
Aside from the sentiment it is not wise
to rock a baby, it is also a woman's notion
that tho eternal swaying facilitates sleep.
The lullaby is quite as effectual and consid
erably sweeter rendered in a stationary
chair. In tho baby hospitals, homes and
asylums of New York, where thousands of
little ones are carefully and tenderly
reared, rocking chairs and swinging cribs
are abolished on the ground of nervous

When the Rev. James Archer took charge
of the Lone Zion church he found the con
gregation thereof in a most demoralized
condition. His predecessor, after making
some heroic attempts to head off the strayed
sheep, had thrown up the sponge and re
tired in disgust.
"Causes depart, but effects remain,"
murmured the Rev. James as ho sur
veyed the ghastly array of empty benches
to which he had preached his opening ser
mon. Unfortunately it was the cause as
well as the effect that remained in Lone
Zion, as he very soon found out, said
cause being a large, red faced saint named
Bangs, who pursued the calling of a usurer
during the week, brazenly demanding 8
per cent, a month on all money advanced,
but when Sunday came presto! what a
change! Donning his religion with his Sab
bath clothes ho proceeded to occupy tho
front pew in church, till carried away by
an excess of fervor ho would advance to
the chancel rail and fairly bombard heaven
with prayers. As the Lord was expected
to do all the giving, Brother Bangs gener
ously requested favors not only for the
members of the congregation, but for nil
Jews, pagans, infidels and the sinful world
at largo. In a word, he prayed both for
the favorites and the field.
Such was the state of affairs when the
Rev. Mr. Archer devoted an entire week
to parochial visiting, and with tears in his
eyes implored the recreant worshipers to
return. "No, sir, no," was the invariable
reply; "as long as you let that fellow Bangs
sit up there in the front pew and run the
praying we ain'i going to come back. The
idea," continued the scoffers indignantly,
"the cheek to lead in prayer and ask fa
vors for honest folk. Go and hush Bangs
up and then we'll see about coming back."
Bangs, however, refused to be hushed up.
Despite the minister's entreaties and ex
postulations he continued to practice usury
and religion with the same fervor and suc
cess. One night during tho week a prayer
meeting was in order. Much to the Rev.
James' surprise quite a number of the dis
gruntled members attended the services.
During the opening hymn a citizen, at
tracted by the music, strayed in and sub
sided quietly in a rear pew, where he
amused himself staring stupidly around.
Never had Brother Bangs been more im
pressive in his amens, more fervid in his
singing, more plaintive in his prayers than
upon this special evening.
Finally in a state of spiritual efferves
cence he rushed out of his pew, caught
hold of the chancel rail, nnd soared heaven
ward on the wings oi prayer. Sighs,
groans and exultant whoops lent dignity
and impressiveness to his exhortation.
"Oh Lord!" ho pleaded, "we pray thee to
grant us all good things we pray thee to
lift up our hearts and give us a higher in
terest in heaven" "What!" yelled the
horrified man in the back pew. "What!
higher interest than 8 per cent, a month!
Great Scott, man, that's high enough for
heaven, earth, or hell either." Brother
Bangs promptly collapsed, and after that
evening tho Lone Zion congregation saw
him no more. Elvira Miller for Chicago

of his recovery are entertained by his
