PLANTS IN BEDROOMS.
The cuntrovcisy as to kccpiiii; live
plants in n room at niglit continues
to be carried on with vigor ami acri
mony, although most people have
probably supposed that it was long
since set ut rest. Not bo very many
years ago tho danger of keeping such
things in a bedroom was a good deal
poohpoohed by practical poisons,
who legal ded the stories told in that
connection as old women's tales,
belonging to the same category as
the mj'lh about sleeping under the
moon, or tahiilg n siesta under a
yew tree. But then thcie were pub
lished terrible accounts of fair
dames, who, despising the warning
in question and depositing bouquets
or flower-pots in their rooms at
night, had met with a fato almost as
tragic as that recorded in the dolo
ful ballad of the "Mistletoe Bough."
Thereupon the scientific world, with
the whole crow of unlearned folk at
its hocls, rushed to the opposite con
clusion and adopted a theory that
illness and even death might result
from sleeping in an apaitincnt which
was attained with living plants or
fresh cuttings. And now it turns
out that in going as far as this we
have gone a good deal too far. At a
medical conicrcnco recently hold in
Franco it was demonstrated to the
satisfaction of all the savants there
present, that plants, as long as they
aie plants only, may safely, and
even with advantage, be admitted to
the clysium from which thoy liavo so
often been exiled. These pretty or
naments, as a learned writer now
declares, "far from being huitfnl,
are beneficial, inasmuch as they ex
hale a certain amount of ozone and
vapor, which maintain a healthy
dampness in the air, and besides
that arc destructive of the microbes
which piomoto consumptive tenden
cies in human beings. It is only
flowers and not the plants which bear
them that do tho damage. Ferns
are innocuous ; roses and sunflowers
are pernicious at least during the
interesting period while they arc in
bloom." London Globe.
WOMEN IN TEXAS.
There are a great many haudsomo
men in Texas. The free, outdoor
life, with much horseback riding,
gives them good forms, clear eyes
and complexions. There is a great
deal of native intelligence and good
thinking. The women among tho
well-to-do classes appear to live
mostly indoors. Even in cities very
few aic seen on the street or in the
stores. They arc not as often rosy
cheeked as the men, but much
oftencr powdered. Living with
doors and windows open a large part
of the year, and in houses all the
yar that let in the air on ovcry side,
it seems strange that they do not
look fresher. At one place, where
tho railroad missed the town a mile,
and all the stores had been taken to
the depot, we asked how they got to
the stores through the mud.
" Oh, we never go ; the men go
on horseback and they do the buy
ing." So it is not uncommon to sec men
buying dress goods, stockings and
other articles for women's wear.
Good help is 6carce and the women
usually do the housekeeping in a few
rooms, cverj-onc of which has one or
more beds in it. Thoir timidity is
so gicat that they object to two
story houses " because the wind
blows." For recreation many dip
snuff and read stoiic3. Old snuff
dippers look snulf-colored. Among
tue poorer classes women work in
the fields at cotton raising. Hoeing
and picking arc done by hand, and
what one man can plant and plow
several hands arc required to hoc
and pick. But raising cotton is
clean farm work. There- are no
briars to scratch, nor juico to stain
tho hand. The stooping is tiresome,
but less so than picking strawberries.
Children aic valuable pickers, being
nimble and of suitable height. Wo
have seen little girls who had picked
hundreds of pounds, with Minbon
nets and mite on in the hot sun, who
wcic not tanned at all. In years
when tho crop is good wages arc
high, and many well-to-do women
go out and pick cotton. Thoy arc
paid by the 100 pounds. Woman's

Ireland like wc have in Illinois?"
"To be shoor we have. Didn't ycz

"What do you buppose makes the
moon so pale, darling?" she asked,
as thoy gazed at the orb of the night.
"I don't know, dear," be answered,
"unless it is being up all night; it
always affects me that way.""

Dear Sir, I writo to inform you that
I havo deiivcd gieat benefit from
"Scigcl's Syrup." For some years I have
suffered from liver complaint, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a perpetual misery.
Twelve months ago I -was induced to try
Scigcl's Symp, and although rather
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it at least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt considerably better, and now
at the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon and a blessing to men" and I
havu no ic.isou to doubt tho truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
over, that Soigol's Symp has come as a
"boon and a blessing" to mo. I havo re
commended it to several fellow-suffcrers
from tliK distressing complaint, and
their lo timony is quite in accoidance
with my own. Gintitudc for tho benefit
1 have derived from the excellent pre
p.ir.uion, prompts me to furnish you
with tills unsolicited testimonial.
