IN THE GOOD OLD TIKES.
Light on the Eternal Servant Ques
tion In 1735.
If tin' re lm one point on which
modern housewives nro agreed it i.
certainly the degeneracy of modem
housemaid1. Aud jot there is room
for doubt a t" whether thin is uot a
popular fallacy. In a curious old
tract entitled ''A Trip Through a
Town j Containing Observations on
tho Humors and M.tnners of th
Ago," published in 1735. there Is a
chapter devoted to "Maul Servants"
which would rau.se oven a fiu-de-siecle
matron to gasp. The writ r
"Women servants are now to
scarco that, from thirty to forty
shillings a year, their wagos nro in.
creased to six, seven and fight
pounds por annum, insomuch thtit
an ordinary tradesman cannot well
keep ono; but his wife, who might
bo useful in his shop or business,
must do tho drudgorv of tho house
hold affairs, and all this because our
servant girls are so puffed up with
pride nowadays that thoy never
think they go line enough. It is a
hard matter to know the mistress
from tho maid by tho dress nay,
very often tho maid is the finer of
tho two. Our woolen manufacturers
suffer much by this, for nothing but
silks and satins will go dowu with
our kitchen wenche3, to support
which tolerable pride thoy have in
sensibly raised thoir wages to such
a height as was never known iu any
ago or nation but this."
Moreover, thoro was in those days
something very liko a trades union
among maid servants forkooping up
an exorbitant scale of wages. "Bo
fore a country girl lias been a week
in service in town," says tho author
of "The Trip," "a committeo of sor
vant wenches are appointed to ex
amino her, who advise her to raise
her wages, or givo warning, to en
courage her to which tho herb wo
mau, or chandler woman, or eoiuo
othor old iutelligencer, provides her
a placo of four or five pounds a jear.
This suits Madarao Cock-a hoop,
and she thinks of nothing but vails
(tips) and high wages, xnd so gives
warning from place to place, till she
gels her wages up to the top."
Tho maid servant in those days
uot only robbed her mistress; she
levied blackmail, too, upon her mis
tress' guests, iu shape of "vails," or
tips, as we should call them. 'For
now," says tho author, "they make
it a perquisite, a material part of
their wages, nor must thoir mastor
give a supper but that tho maid ex
pects tho guests should pay for it
nay, sometimes through the noso.
Thus have- they spirited people up
to this unnecessary and burdensome
piece of genorosity, unknown to our
ancestors, who only gave gifts at
Ghristmaslide, which custom is yet
kept up into tho bargain; insomuch
that a maid shall have 8 per an
num, and, if her mastor is a mau of
free spirit, aud recoives much com
pany, she very often doubles her
wages by her vails. Thus, having
meat, drink, washing and lodging
for her labor, sho throws her whole
income upon her back, and by this
means looks moro liko tho mistress
of tho family than tho servant
And those wero tho "good old
times!" Who would care to substi
tute them for our ownT Tho mis
tress of to-day, with all that sho suf
fers at the hands of servants, may
take heart when sho thinks of tho
maids of ICO years ago.
Granny Gorton's Birthday.
Saturday, January 21st, was a
creat day in Ceutral Village, in tho
Statu of Connecticut, iu America.
On that day Mrs. Jonathan Gorton
was 100 years old aud formally re
ceived horfrionds.of whom hundreds
were present. She wore her best
black silk pown, with a rose iu tho
bodice The venerable lady was
sooted in a comfortablo armchair on
a platform iu tho best room of her
house. Then tho train of callors
filed through, each aud all shaking
hands with her. "Granny Gorton,"
as she is called, is a trim little body
aud very nimblo on her feet. There
was never anything ailed her, sho
says, and, except that her eyesight
isn't quito so good as it used to bo,
she is as active as any woman of HO.
Why has Granny Gorton lived so
long? Why is sho so nctive nowJ
She lots out tho secret herself whon
sho says, "Tliero was uover anything
ailed mo." Thai's it, and all of it.
People who live 100 years are uot
so very rare. Tho deaths of 45 such
wero reported last year in England
22 men and 23 women. Vet, com
pared to the multitudes who die,
theso aro uothiug nothing. Cau
wo not keep things from ailing us,
aud so live long as Mrs. Gorton 7
Yes if no will tnko the trouble to do
il I Men aud women UK) years old,
Mill vigorous and dear headed,
should ho a sight so common as not
to be remarked, and will be yt iu
tho future. Why not so now' "Ask
yoursolf tho question," as tho boat
mon my down on Deal beach.
I Here's how it is: A womau's tale.
Sho svs sho fell ill when a girl of
about 15. She lot her appetite, had
pains in tho Aides and chest, fre
quent hcndnfhfx ud vm often ob
liged to lie down on the couch and
reM. A'l this didn't promise loiig
life, did il N' ; it wu a bad start
Well, she got worse instead ol bet
ter. Sho was often sick, vomited
her food, aud spitting up a sour
fluid. For five years she went on
this way. This brings us to October,
1881. Sho wat then in service as
parlor-maid at Leamington Hast
ings, Warwickshire. Hero she suf
fered from constant sicknrss, re'eh
lug, nnd heartburn. The client
pains were so bad as to bend her two
double. No position that sho could
take relieved her. Her stomach was
so tender and sore that everything
she ato pained and distressed her.
For mouths aud mouths she only
took liquid food milk and boateu
eggs, and so ou.
Sho got weaker and weaker every
day, so Ahe savs. Of course; how
else could it be? A doctor at llugby
told her she had "ulceration of the
chest," which sho didn't at all.
What is "ulceration of tho chet"J
He gave lior medicines and advice,
but sho grew no bettor ou that ac
count This young lady was now
about 20 tear old, with a poor out
look for ever being much older. She
didn't expect it nor did her friends.
Then another doctor, being consult
ed, said "ulceration f tho chest,"
liko his medical brother at llugby.
"After six mouths' medical treat
ment," she says, "I gavo up my situ
ation and returned to my homo at
Iluxton Lamas, Norfolk. This was
iu Juno, 1882. Thou 1 was taken so
bad I had to take to my bed. My
mother thought I was iu a docliue."
Now, tho word "decline" meaiiB
consumption, us we all kuow; a
diseasn common iu England and in
curable everywhere. Thousands of
bright girls and young mou "do
cliue" into thoir graves every year
in this populous island Sad enough
it is to see.
Well, at this point her good and
wise mother interfered in her daugh
ter's case. She gavo tho doctors tho
go-by and sent to Norwich for some
bottles of Mother Snigel' Curativo
Syrup. In two wek3 the young
p.ttient began to feel better, and iu
three mouths sho got n new situ
ation and wont to work.
"Siucothen, fifteen years ago," sho
says, "I have kept iu better health
than over before iu my life, thanks '
to Seigel's Syrup. Yours truly, '
(Signed), (Mrs.) Sahaii Eleanoii
Maker, 8, King's Street, Church
lload, Totteuham, near London. Sep
tember !)0th, 189A" '
A dozeu words moro and we're
done. Mrs. Baker's ailment was in- '
digestion aLd dyspepsia, nothing ,
else, and quito enough. The "ulcera '
tiou" was inflammation of tho inner
coating of the stomach, a -ymptom
of tho disease. We wish her a long '
and happy life, aud merely add that '
if all her sex could avoid or cure this
ono trouble most of them might live
to be as old as Grauuy Gorton.
Now that tho war of tho revolu
tion is over, it is the duty of every
man to support the existing form of
government. Although things may
not move with that cordiality that
would ensure au evorlastiug peaco,
still they may bo allowed to subside
into that indifference- without animo
sity that would allow oithor party
to work out thoir best iuterests. All
things considered it may be for tho
best, but time, tho only arbitrator in
such cases, must alono decide that

is plainly nhown in our treat
ment of ourfflves in health
and sickness. When we are
ell, feeling splendid, we
ignore the possibility of sick
ness. Hut overwork, high
living, inherited poor blood,
irregular courses, etc., de
velop symptoms of weakness,
of dyspepsia, liver complaint,
and the general health fails.
You should know by expe
rience, as thousands do, that
whilst in health the system
would never run down and
doctors' hills would not
have to he paid. This is a
fact worth remembering
and of vital importance
to you. IJROWN'S IRON
