which we have given serious consideration

What work out of doors could women
do? We know of one young lady who
does the running goes to mill, to the
store, on errands to the neighbors, and to
the depot, and for this the carriage or the
horse's hack come equally in use, with
perhaps a preference for the latter. She

long since that she " stiouil be glad to gel

Kut another point we had in mind wns

ladies. The chances for the ordinary
young lady of sixteen or twenty to be n

great as that of being strnek by lightning
even though she may have given the sub.
j"Ct all hr spire time and attention; for
the talent to be an excellent painter is
rare, and even with that present the yexrs
would not have given the experience
necessary for excellence. But it has been
fashionable to have these accomplishments,
and their acquirement has b en considered
a verv trifling matter, and musio or draw

idea which has borne fruit In the miserable

The miss who takes a lesson in draw,

I wish to show how drowning might,

of swimming. The numerous frightful

be makes a few spasmodic struggles,
throws up his hands and drowns. The
brute, on the other hand, treads water, re
mains on the surface, and is virtually in-
subiuergihle. In order, then, to escape
drowning, it is only necessary to ao as ine
brute does, and tint ts, to Head or walk

in regard to his relative weight, in respect
to the water, over man, and yet the man
perishes while the brute lives. Neverthe

something is to be ascribed to the vague
meaning which is attached lo the word

thing, when a dog swims it means another
and quite a inherent act. ine dog is
wholly incapable of swimming as a man

that a man is capable of swimming, and on

Mi n and animals are able to sustain
themselves for long distances ill the water,
and woul l do so much oflener were they
not incapacitated, in regard to the former,
at least by sheer terror, as well as com
plete ignorance of their own powers.
Webb's wonderful endurance will never
bo lorgotten. But there are are other in
stances only less remarkable. Some years
since, the second mate of a ship tell over
board while in the act of furling a sail.
Il was blowing fresh; the time was night
and the place some live miles out in the
sloimy (ierinan ocean. I he hearty fellow
nevertheless managed to gain the Knglish
coast. Brock, with a dozen other pilots,
was plying for fires by Yarmouth; and as
the main sheet was belayed a sudden puff
of wind upsel the boat, when presently all
perished except Brock himself, who, Irom
4 o'clock in the aliernoon of an Octoher
evening lo 1 o'clock the next morning,
swam thirteen miles before he was able to
hail a vessel at anchor in the oiling. An
imals themselves are capable ol swim
ming immense distances, although unable
io rest by the way. A dog receuily swam
thiny miles in America, in order lo rejoin
his master. A mule and a dog washed
overboard in the bay of Biscay wen-
known to make their way to shore. A
log swam ashore with a letter in his
iiiouih at the cm lie of Good Hope. The
crew of the ship to which the dog belonged
all perished, which they need not h ive
done had they only ventured to tread wa
ter lis the dog did. As a certain ship was
laboring heavily In the trough of the sea, ii
was found needful, in order to lighten the
vessel, to throw some troop horses over
board which had been taken in at Corona.
The poor things, my informant, a siaff sur
geon, told me, when they loutld them
selves abandoned, faced round und swam
for miles ofter the vessel. A man on the
east shore of Lincolnshire saved quite a
number of lives by swimming out on
horseback to vessels in distress. He com
monly rode an old gray mure, but when
the mure was not at hand he took the first
horse that offered.
The loss of life from shipwreck, boating,
bathing, skating, fishing and accidental
immersion is so disastrously great, that,
i very feasible procedure calculated to
avert it ought to be had recourse to. Peo
ple will not consent to wear lite preservers
hut if they only knew that in their own
tiuihs, properly used, they possessed the
most efficient life preservers, they would
most likely avail themselves of them. In
every school, every house, there ought to
be a slate lank of sufficient depth, with a
trickle of waler at one end and a syphon
at tile other, iu order to keep the contents
pure. A pail or two of hot waler would
al any time render the contents suflicieni ly
warm. In such a tank, every child from
iho lime it could walk. ought lo be made to
tread water daily. Every adult, when the
opportunity presents itself, should do so.
I lie printed injunction should be pasted
up on all boat houses, on every boal.al
every bathing place and in every school :
Tread water when you find yourself out
of your depth," is all that need he said,
unless, indued, we add: "Float when you
are tired." Every one, of whatever age
or sex, or however encumbered with
Ciottiing, might trmd water with at least
as much facility, even inabieaking sea,
asa four footed animal does. The position
of a person who treads water is, in other
respects, very much safer and better than
is the sprawling attitude which we assume
in ordinary swimming. And then the
beauty of it is that we can tread water
without any preliminary leaching, where
as "to swim " involves tune and pains
entails consiiteraiile taliguu and is very
seldom adequately acquired niter all.
The Indians on the Missouri river.whon
ihey have occasion to traverse that impet
uous stream, invariably iread water, just
as a dog treads it. The Unlives of Jcniia.
an island on the coast of Madagascar,
oung persons of both sexes walk the
water, carrying fruits and vegetables to
ships hecahued; or il may be lying to in
the offing miles away. Some Croouien
whose oanoe upset before my eyes in the
seaway on the coast of Africa, walked the
! water, to the safe keeping of their lives
with the utmost facility, and I witnessed
negro children on other occasions doing so
t a very tender age. At Madras, watcn-
ing their opportunity, messengers wiih
letters secured in an oilskin cap, plunge
into the boiling surf and make ibeir way,
treading the water, to tbe vessels outside,
through a sea in which an ordinary boat
will not live. At the cape of Good Hope
m m used to proceed to the vessel in the
offing through the mountain billows.
treading the water as they went with the
u most security. And yet. here, on our
own shore, amid smooth waters, men.
women and children perish like flies an
nually, when a little properly directed ef
forttreading the water as I have said
would haply suffice to rescue every one.
The Grace of Hospitality. The tru
est, most generous hospitality can only
spring from Christian hearts, and not any
outward show of profuse welcome oan
ever make up for the hearty grasp of the
hand of Christian fellowship; yet Christian
iieople, through lack of laitb or forgelful-
ness of duty, sometimes are far from real
izing the full importance of hospitality,
and Christians do not even so well as their
good sense, principle and education teach
them in making their guests feel at ease.
Onesiphorus was not ashamed of the chain,
and whatever bonds may bind Ihe guest in
the bouse, it is but Christian courtesy to so
far as possible ignore their existence if un
sightly, or aid in carrying if heavy to bear
The fretted and fretful housekeeper will
never impress the idea of the dignity of
labor upon the mind of the young lady
visitor, buton the contrary, will very likely
repulse her from any faint longing she may
have entertained as to the desirability of
learning to do her own housework. And a
habit of regarding those who spend much
time reading, drawing, or in amusements
other than in the direct line of procuring
daily food, as Inzy, will certainly make the
indulger narrow in mind and close an open
door towards real and positive good.
Rightly viewed, the interchanges between
uity nnd oountry lifo should be of the
pleasantest character, and productive of
the highest, good to all parties. That it is
not always so is a matter of regret, but as
the gears roll on let the amalgamation
between the city Christian and tbe country
Christian become more and more perfect
Better understanding each other, each will
gain from the other much that is pleasant.
and a great deal that is helpful iu life.
Vhnstuin at Work.
Strength of character consists of two
things power of will and power of self
restraint. It requires two things, there
fore, to its existence strong leelings and
strong command over them. Now il is
here we make a groat mistake we mis
take strong feelings for strong character.
A man who bears all before him, before
whose frown domestics tremble, and whose
bursts of fury make the children of the
household quake because he is obeyed
and has his own way in all things we call
him a strong man. I tie truth is, that
he is the weak man ; it is his ptcsions that
are strong; he, mastered by them, is weak
You must measure the strength of a man
by the power of those which subdue bun.
Hence comp sure is very often the highest
result of st rength. Did we ever see a man
receive a flagrant insult, and only grow a
little pale and quietly reply K that is a
man spiritually strong. Or did we ever
see a man in anguish stand as if carved
out of a solid rock, mastering himself? 0
one bearing a hopeless daily trial remain
silent, and never tell the world what cank
ered his home peace? That is strenglh. He
who with strong passions remains chaste;
he who, keenly sensitive with manly
powers of indignation in him can be pro
voked and yet restrain himself and forgive
these are the strong men, the spiritual
