NOVEL READING AND ITS EFFECT.
1 have been a reader of "The
Household" for si long time and
lately read in il several letters on
novel reading. As those in favor of
it seemed to have the last word, I
feel like saying something on the
opposite side. I have had some ex
perience in reading and it is my
opinion that novel reading is a dam
age to ono in many -ways. It excites
the imagination unduly and causes
real life, in contrast to that pictured
in such reading, to be almost a bur-
den with its cares and disappoint
ments, its sameness and its vexa
tions, all of which arc intended to
discipline and develop our moral
natures, but which arc so contrary
to the spirit of novel writers. Such
reading will sometimes so absorb
our minds that wc forget the inter
ests of business, our duties to each
other, to speak the kind or sym
pathetic word and neglect something
of importance until it is too late.
There is plenty of reading besides
the novel that will rest, cheer, en
tertain and instruct, without dis
tracting the mind or making us feel
that real life is monotonous. Some
books arc written with a mild story
mixed with a great deal of philoso
phical talk, the story to act the part
of a sugar-coating to a very bitter
pill. If the philosophical part was
written in an interesting manner
would it not be read just as soon
without the stoiyr It only goes to
show that one is so exceedingly dull
it never would be read without the
aid of the other.
As there arc exceptions to all
rules so there arc exceptions to the
harm done by fictitious reading.
Such novels as Dickens' are so true
that one may be benefited by read
ing them. But where one is bene
fited a thousand are injured by pro
miscuous novel reading. Uetroit
LADIES AS BEEKEEPERS.
It has long been our opinion that
many ladies, as well as gentlemen,
could keep bees, and that, too, much
more profitably than many men do.
Many men who attempt to keep bees
only enter into it as a kind of second
ary matter to be added to many
other businesses already begun, and
make sad mistakes. "While if it had
been a lady who had perhaps ex
pended the same amount of capital
in bees and hives as a start, she no
doubt would have given the bees
good attention, securing a nice lot
of fine honey, as well as increasing
her stock from 300 to '100 percent.
These arc calculations based on
actual experience of many years'
practice in the business, having
watched the results of many cases
that have come under my immediate
13ut it is not my object to speak
exclusively of men making failures
in the bee business, but to show that
ladies seldom make failures when
they go into the bee or poultry busi
ness, many of them .succeeding far
beyond their own expectations ; and
the longer they follow the business
the better they like it. I might here
add that the business is truly well
adapted to the care of ladies, also
to invalids, who so often need more
outdoor exercise and pure air. I
speak more particularly of the bee
business as a calling, from the fact
they board themselves and return
larger dividends than any other
farm stock can do with the same ex
pense ; hence, I say, let the ladies
take more interest in the manage
ment of bees.
There are three very important
considerations to be looked after in
the successful management of an
apiary. The first of all is a good
location, with plenty of bee pastu
rage, which means honey resources
on which bees can work. Second,
a first-class movable frame beehive,
in which bees can be easily handled
at any and all times without making
your bees as mad as hornets a hive
in which the bee-master can at any
time see' the broad chamber when
desired and know the exact condi
tion of the brood a hive from which
he can take nil the surplus honey
without molesting in the least the
brood nest. The third consideration
is one of also much importance, that
of an industrious beekeeper to man
ago her or his stock for success.
This means much, and to one who
is interested it is truly a source of
pleasure, as it leads you to study
into one of nature's most beautiful
sciences, and as it becomes better
understood the more real pleasure
you find in this beautiful occupa
tion, which is so well calculated to
elevate rather than pull down or
degrade tho human character.
In ho other pursuit or occupation
of life, in which so small amount of
capital can be invested, could ladies
engage to better advantage and feel
truly independent, reaping a rich
reward for all labor bestowed, be
sides in many instances add to their
health and happiness. AVc know of
many ludies, old and young, who
make a success of beekeeping, many
of them having means in abundance
and not compelled to do any labor,
but, from a sonso of honor, as well
as encouragement to others to do
likewise, they set the example and
find it truly profitable. Coleman's
HOW MUCH PEOPLE DRINK.
The following table, compiled
from oflleial sources and recently
issued by the Federal Council of
Switzerland, shows the consumption
per capita of alcoholic drinks, wine
and beer of the principal nations of
the world for one year. Belgium
takes the first prize for quantity,
each of her population averaging
per annum over eight (plaits of
whiskey, three quarts of wine and
155 quarts of beer. The license
system of Belgium is liberal, and
tiio amount of positive drunkenness
there is not so large as in Great
Spirits Wine Itcci.

Fifty ilcgioes of alcoholic strength.
Some curious facts arc developed
by a reference to this table. It
upsets the preconceived notion that
Germany is the champion beer
drinking nation. Belgium and
Great Britain consume over twice as
much beer as does Germany, while
Denmark and the Netherlands lead
the column in spirits and hard
drinks. After all our self-condemnation
as a whiskey-drinking popu
lation, the United States make a
pretty respectable showing as to
temperance, being sixth in the con
sumption of beer and wine, and
eleventh in spirits. "While there is
more drunkenness in England than
in France the French arc by all odds
the heaviest consumers of alcohol.
The Frenchman is a regular system
atic wine-tippler, but imbibes by
formula, while the Englishman, as a
rule, is a sporadic drunkard, swal
lowing enough of fiery decoctions
during his Saturday night carousals
in the gin-mills and slums of Lon
don to use him up moralty, physi
cally, socially and financially. In
France men, women and children
drink wine. There arc no total
abstainers in that country, and many
of their bibulous population con
sume vast quantities of spirits in
the shape of Cognac, absinthe and
vermouth. The use of the latter
stimulant is fearfully injurious to
mind, body and morals. Various
theories have been advanced as to
the rapid spread of intemperance
in the numerous so-called civilized
nations of the earth, and how to
remedy this by moral suasion or
stringent legislation is one of the
huge unsolved problems of the pre
sent day. The careful perusal of
this tabic will be worth something
to the intelligent reader.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of the Dquitnblc Life As
burance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report :
1st The Society issues all the approv
cd forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; arc indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
8d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are tho samo as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and'thc accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years arc past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
0th Tontiue policies, liko others, are
paid in full in tho event of death at any
time during tho term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontinu policy,
holders, as tho better lives sock this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontlno policies will bu mado
non-forfcltablo under tho laws of the
State, if so desired at tho time the as
surance 1h effected.
8th The Tontlno system is fair and
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
