Between the homestead and the railroad

b'lengln' le the pstate." It had been the
property or land sreculater who bad died
some year before. Most el It was a tangled
mas of bushes and briars, and at one end
rea a small conical hill. Hither Tem bent
bl steps, and ascending the knell, sit down
with his bsck egalnst a rock, drew up his
knees and laid hi brad en his arm. Tbe

physical discomfort. He had eaten nothing

were beginning te tell ea htm. A light haz
danced occasionally before hi eye, and his
injured hand smarted and throbbed. His
musings were disturbed by ibe sound of
wheels en the plsnks at the rallretd crossing.
Ue looked after his father's buggy a minute,
and Idly wendered what his errand was.
Then hearlng footsteps behind him, be turned
and recognized Jim Lecke,
"Uew are you, Weed?" said Jim, ad
vancing and etlerlng his hand, which Tem
took without much enthusiasm. ' I saw

child's bath, In health aud lllnem, which
must be of Interest te Ihe mothers of the land.
Bathing as means et cleanliness, as usually
carried out, la simple enough, and, for a
healthy child, well enough, although It U ad
visable te vary the routine. 1'er Instance,
for delicate or nervous child wbe hitc te
be fused ever, sponging the body, ene part
t time, without uncovering hII at once, is a
geed plan. Anointing the skin creases with
vaseline and wiping with a soft cloth may
also be resorted te, as a saving el fatigue and
Tbe batb for Immersion should net be fur
from 100 degrees F. If tbe sponging alone
be employed 90 te j degrees will be warm
enough ler a utreng baby. The bath ther
mometer, set In a stout woedeu frame ler se
curity, is a very great convenience, but if It
be uet at baud the most accurnte ready
method we knew et is that Homellmes em
ployed by nuraes et immersing the elbow et
tbe bared arm tu the water. The elbow Is
muab mere sensitive te heat aud cold than
tbe band, which la accustomed te change el
temperature. Wheu the temperature is euro
fully arranged and the immersion is very
brief it can hardly Injure any child. If the
water be tee cold or tee het, It may preve ex
hausling, especially if tbe rlslug be tee long,
, or If tbe shock alarms the child, II child

be taken, and tbe tmmersleu may be emitted

An error U In supposing that tbe dally bath
la weakening, and la emitting it as seen a It
done net appear requisite te absolute oleaull eleaull

The most available and b?neflcUI method of
employing the cold bath for chlldren is by
sponging. Very young children should net

te ene et the straugeat places of burial tu thn

There were five et these towers within an ex
tensive walled lnclesure, wbleh also con
tallied a lire temple, with boles se cut lu Its

tire within te fall en tbe towers. A we
drove up te this place a l'arsee funeral wa

between the rich and tbe peer after death.
Ne manor hew far away the dead body may
be. It alwaya has a walking funeral, tbe body
bdlug carried te the Tower of Silence en a
Dier, entlreiy covered with a white sheet,
and ea the shoulders of official corpse
bearera. This is followed by a precession of
mourning relative and friends, all walking,
aud each dressed from head te feet In white
mourning robes, marching two by two, each
two Joined together by holding a white
handkerchief between them as a token of
sympathetic grief. Many of these In the
precession which I saw were chatting pleas
antly together, as though no thought of death
had power te disturb them in tbe least
Thtse tower are cylindrical buildings
with very thick walls. The interior Is open
te tbe sky, being covered near tbe top with a
circular tl terlug, which incline downward,
all tbe way around, te a deep well in the
uuntre. Between tbla well and tbe walls
there am three olreular rows et shallow, open
boles large enough te contain a human body.
Tluae three rows correspond te the three
moral precept cf the Zireastrlan religion,
viz : "Geed Thoughts," "Geed Words,"
"Geed Deeds." They are te be used re
spectively ler men, women and children.
The bottom of the well is tilled with filtering
layers of charcoal and saud, se as te keep tbe
eartli beneath It from being polluted.

and then leave tbe place. As seen as tbey

which have been rapidly collecting en neigh

and denude tbe body et every particle of

Helen Campbell In Brooklyn Magazine.
Women have learned te study their own
figures and their own coloring ; te settle
definitely en what harmonizes and best em
phasizes both ; and thus it has come te pass
that the American woman is new, if high
authority may betrus'ed, the best-dressed
woman in tbe world. Her skirts msy still be
tee heavy, her waist tee small, ber aleeves
tee tight, but this Is tbe tyranny of a fashion
from which she mere aud mere emancipates
herself as time geos en. Tbe day will coma
when every child will be taught tbe lawa et
form and color in their application te drees,
aud any violation be held as an eflenaa
agslnst society, te be Instantly trowneddewo.
When tbat dsy comes,' the three essentials wa
have peel tied will enter into every dress. It
is equally certain that for many that day la
already here. Common sense Is one portion
of the average American weman'a Inner!
tanee. It may be seriously overlaid with
prejudices, It may be hampered in Its action
by tear of Mrs. Urundy, yet every commu
nity baa today Ita representative women,
leading mere and mere In their train, and
calmly Ignoring tbe merely conventional.
These women are net overdressed, whatever
glory of color or richness el msterisl may
enter In Inte tbe composition of tbelr cos
tume, for with them it is no question of
something te be worn twice or thrice and
then turned ever te tbe dealer in second-hand
garment. It Is only for evening festivity or
gay luncb or alternoen tea tbat any deviation
from an almost fixed uniform is allowed,
and here the very woman proneunoed ever
dressed msy have worn the same costume,
wltb slightest variations, two, three nay,
even half a dozen yeara.
Tailor-made gowns have brought about
tbe revolution sighed for many yeara age by
sensible women, and it is only here and
there tbat one sees silks and velvets en tbe
street, tbelr appearance there indicating tbat
tbe wearer la either underbred nd Ignorant,
or is wearing out bar old dresses preparatory
te uomleg into ber real kingdom and tasting
tbe deligut of simple, compact, well-made
suit The shop-girl, wbe fellows always
close behind, Is learning this, and cheeses
new a suit of cheap material, because nothing
but cheapness Is possible for her, but mod
eled en tbe severe simplicity she sees In tbe
drees of ber best customers. English fash
ion may have led us astray at times, but we
