LETTER TO COUNTRY GIRLS.
Mrs. Swisshelm, in a late number of
the Saturday Visiter. has the following
letter to country girls. She talks "right
out" to theim.
You know I said that I could quilt
almost as fast-as two of you. The rea
son is, I take care of my hands. One
half of you are too proud to do thii.
You would not be caught putting a glove
on to sweep or hoe, or weed in the gar
den, because you think it would look as
if yuu wanted to be fine ladies. If you
see any one-aking cae of her hands,
or careful to wear a sun-bonnet- to pre
serve her complexion, you say she is
"proud and stuck up." But it is you
who are proud-too proud to think you
require any care to look nice. You have
an idea you !gok well enough at any
rate. So you just make yourself as
rough and coarse as ever you can, by
way of being independent. Your hands
grot as stiff and hard as if you hr.ld a
plow and swung a scythe, and when yiou
take a needle you can scarcely feel it
in your fingers. This is wrong. Thre
are many things which women ought to
do. which require their hands to be soft
and pliable, and they should be careful
to keep them so, in order to make them
useful. Every woman w hro lives in the
country should knit herself a pair of
woolen gloves, with long fingers closed
at the tops-no mits, to let the fingers
get hard. There should be a piece of
ribbed work at the wrist to make them
W hen you use your hoe, rake, or
broom put on your gloves-when you
take hold ofa skillet, not or kettle han
die, take a cloth to keep your hands
from being scared and hardened. When
you wash clothes or dishes, do not have
water so hot as to feel unpleasant. Many
girls scald their hands until they can put
them into water almost boiling.-Such
hands are unfit to use a needle or a pin.
They are not so good to hold a baby or
a wound. Take care of your hands,
and do not forget your faces. I have
seen so many country. girls who, at six
teen, had bmplexio's like alabaster,
and at twenty-six. their faces would look
like a runnet bag that had hung six weeks
in the chimney corner.-Or.e reason of
this is they don't wear a bonnet to pro
tect them fro.n the sun. Another rea
son is, the habit 'they have o' baking
their faces before a wood fire. I have
seen women stand before a gieat toasting
fire and cook, until 1 thought their brains
were as well stewed as the chickens;
and they would get so used to it they
would make no attempr to shield their
heads frnom the heat. Nay, they would
sit down in the evening and bake their
faces by the hour; an:d this is one of the
reasons why American women grow old,
withered and. wrinkled, fifteen years
before their time.
But another, and the greatest reason
is your diet. Peopl5, in this country
live too well, and eat too much hot
bread and meat. Country people usu
ally eat richer food than those who live
in the cities, and that is a reason why,
with all their fresh air, their average is
little greater than that of city folks.
Thousands of beautiful blooming coun
try gidls make old, sallow-faced women
of themselves before they are thirty, by
drinking coffee, smoking tobacco, and
eating hot bread. They shorten thteir
lives by theise practices about as much
as city ladies with their fashionable fol
lies. I do not know wvhat you think
about it,trhs, but I thiinle it is about as
much a sin for a woman to get old,
brown, and withered races, by eating
too much, as it is fur men to ge~t red no
ses by drinking too much. Very few
people think it a disgrace to have a bil
lious fever; but I would just as lieve the
doctor would tell me that I was drunk
as that I was billious. The one would
come from drinking too much, lthe other
from eating too much; and where is the
differencei All this is a very serious
matter, for it effects hreralth and life; and
the reason why I talk about your com
plexion in speaking of it, is, that eivery
body lovcs to LOOK well whether-they
will acknowledge it or not. Now peo
ple cannot look wELLI unless they are
well, and no one can be well very'long
who does not try to take care of herself.
The wvoman wiho roasts her head at the
fire, disorders her blood- brings on head
aches, injures her health, and markes her
face look like a piere of leather; when
she swallowvs hot, coffee., hot bread,
greasy victuals and strong gickles, she
destroys her stomach, rots her teeth,
shorters her life, and makes herself too
ugly for any use, except scaring the
cr ows off the corn. J. G. S.
A country greenhorn, after being join
edjin the chaains of wedlock, wvas asked
hy'one of the guests, a friend, if ho had

OR IOW THE HoOSIER COME IT.
Many yea-s ago a.Hoosier, who had
just struck New Orleans for the flits
time, alter- his fla tboat was ma'de snug
and fast; went up to see the sights of thef
city. Passing St. Charles lie stopped
immediately in front of the St. Chni les
Hotel, and hooking up, seemrd to scru
tinize the building with the eye of an-ar
After satisfying his gaze he asked of
a p-sser.by what building it was; on he
ing told it was a hotel, he inquired for
the entrance, and being shown, he as
cended the ster-p steps. Approaching
the ofice, he ingnired for the landlord,
of whom he inquired if he could get " a
bite " to eat. Mr. E. R. Mudge, who
was the host at that time, and who is a
host at all times, humoring the ftllow,
told him lie could do so by paying a dol,
lhr, A fter considering for some time on
this itsm, and gravelv looking his host
in the face, lie snid "1 Well, I'll go it,
thur's my dollar, whai's your dinier ?"
"' Well," said tihe otlter, wioh a smih-,
" It is not ready yet, but take a sent at
the table there, and you can amuse your,
self with' the paperrs for half an hour,
when you will hear the gong, which will
inform you that dinner is ready,."
"1 The gong, what's that ?" asked the
Hoosier. " Oh you will find out when
you hear it," replied Mudge. Satisfied
with this answer, the Hoosier, after look
ing wildly around him, sat down and
rummaged over the papers. Time sped
on at its customary rate, when suddenly
the gong sounded, and as usual the crowd
moved for the dining room.
Recovering from his astonishnient at
the noise of the gone, and scentina the
delicious fumes of the dinner,. the 110.
siet made a rush through the crowd for a
seat, but being met by the host he was
conducted to his alhottted chair. The
gentlemen seated on cach side of him,
as will as the gentlemien opposite hemi,
had their wine before them.
After finishing his soul), and having"
his plate well filled, the H oosier observed
the gentlemen helping themtelves freely
to wine, and so, seizing the bottle of his
right-hand neighbor, he attempted to
help himself, wheni he was modestly ii
formed that the wine was " privat."
The Hoosier did nnt seem to compre.
hind, and with a blank sort of louk, re
sumcl his knife and fork. On laying I
theni down again, and having apparently
come to the conclusion that it could not
all be "1 private " wine, lie seized hold
of his left-hand friend's hotle. "1 Stop,
if you please, sir," said the off;ndid in
dividual with a fierce look, " that is pri,
vote wine, sir." The Hoosier looked
siill more astonished, and findling it a
hard case, thought lie woul make an.
other trial any how. So reacihing across
the table, he seized the bottle opposite
to him, and was just in the act of filling
his gliss, when his vis-a-vis re-echotid
" private winie, sir, if you pheas:-," and
withdrew the bottle from the fearful
leakage it was abon' to undergo.
The "green 'un," becommg enraged
at being loiled on every side, and ob
serving that there was a general simper
ing and tattering among the waiters,
turned on the servant whot stood at the
back of his chair, and whto had taketn
away hiis plate for the fifith or sixth time,
and ciried out to him with an o:,th to
bring hack his plate, and t'at if he tooik
it a w:;y dgain, "he'd be dod rodil if he
did'nt drawv his picker on him," and,
stiting the action to the word, bnt his
hand into his bosom, showing the handle
of a hiuge bowie-knife.
After this things wvent on qnietly, till
the desert was put otn the table, when, a
large (?1harlott~e Russe pudding was set
right before the Hoosier. This he im
mediately dte~w near his pla te, a nd look
ing right and left at his neighblors, lie
helped himself to a latrge portion of it.
Keeping his eyes fixed on the dish,
while eating lhe perceived hiisiight-hand
neighbor attempting to wvithdrawv the
dish from' him. ''No you dotn't Mister,''
said the Hoosier to him, "th'at f/har pod
dini' is private pudding." T he le ft-hand
gentleman, net observing wvhat had pass
ed, then said, "Allowv tie to take this
pudding, sir ?" "No, y ou can't take
thait' t/har puedlin',". A nd lie relbel ped
himself. Shortly after the gentleman
opposite was in the act of drainitg the
dish over to himn. "Hold on, M~ister,"
said the Hloosiet, with a look of triumph,
"P'd have you to know that pueddin' is
privale puddin,' while at the same time
he put his thumb to his nose arid made
sundry gyrations wvith his fingers. "You
can't conic it over me," he continued,
feeling that a joke had been practiced
upon him. "Private wine, elh !'
The attention of ,the table being at
tracted during the latter scente, te gen
tlenien around burst into a roar of laugh
ter, and soon the wvhole story was whiis
pered from one to another. The thing
took so well thntevczy, gnnlt'aman was
in-ced. torsend his bottle to tihe Hooster
witll his hnpliments, and our "green
'n," sdoAi became as merry as a lord.
HIiccouglfutg, as he left the table, ho
turnei round to the gentlemen and
said ; "Well, old (hiccough) filows,
you (hiedough) could'i (hliccoulgh)- come
it ovier (4icfcough) me with your (rfic
co-igh) ,rOivate Wine." The gi1ss 's
fairly da ied upon tle table with the
uproar a-nt laughter which this last
remaritcrdated, and the Hoosier, stag
geringn ' of t he room, made the best of
his way his boat.-N. 0. Picayune.
CnA l -Night kissed the, young
rose, andait bet softly to sleep. Stamrs
shone, and puie dew-drops hung upon
its bluohiug bosom, and watched its
sweet s3lambers. Morning came with
her, dancing breezes, and they whisper
ed to the young rose, and it awoke joy
ous and smilling. Lightly it danced to
Ind fro iiall the lovelinss of healh and
vouthful -ionnbcence. Then came the
ardent sun-god, sweeping from tlhe east,
and he smote the youne rose with his
scorrhing rays, and it fainted. Defest
ed an!] alriost heart-broken, it dropped
to the dust in loneliness and despair.
Now, ihu'erntle breeze, which had been
gamboling over the sea, pushing on the
homebdund- bark, sweeping over hill
and dald-hy the neat cottage and still
brook-tutrnitng the old mill, falnning the
fevered brow of discae, and frisking ihe
coils of innocent childhood-came irip
ping along on her ei rands ol mercy and
love ; anl when she saw tlo young rose,
she hastened to kiss it; and londly bathed
its forehead in cool, refreshing showers,
and ih,.young roserevived, and looked
u) and stniled in gj atitude to the kind
breeze; 'bit slte horried qutickly awa.y;
her generous task was pei fornel, yet
not without reward; for she soon per
ceived liat a delicious fragrance had
beep poired on her wings by the grate
ful rose;:and the kind breize was glad
in learitand went away singing through
the trees. Tos true Charity, like t lie
breeze ,*; .thers fragrance from the
droopid-ar it refreshes, and uncon
scioisly reaps a reward in the perflor
mance 'of its offices of kindness, whOIich
steals on the heari like a rich perfume,
to bless and to cheer.

hrough the cornfields and pastures, lie
thoutght it would be polite to call at the
Nahin of the "driver," ot head man, and
iiquire if the colonel was at home.
Finding the door closed, he walked un.
Jer the house, and bellowed hallo ! at
the top of his voice. Getting no ans

dlering and thumpinig, lifting tup the floor
