What is a flirt ? How often
have we heard the question asked
-how seldom answered.
All seem, more or less, to in
dulge in a little "innocent flirta
tion." It is a pleasant pastime,
and they enjoy it vastly.
Even married people, now-a
days, appear to have a consider
able relish for a side dish of flirta
Now, in good, sober earnest, is
dirting an innocent amusement?
Sometimes, yes ! oftener, no!
Not that we think many of
these dear, delightful little crea
tures who revel in the name of
firt, eare much. They seem to de
light in the idea of wounding a
poor, susceptible fellow ; and with
this,end in view, they use all their
charms to the very best advan
ow cleverly they find out all
his weak points, take his heart by
storm, and then, without the sha
dow of pity, mercy or remorse,
turn round and laugh in the poor,
deluded fellow's face.
Of course there is a great deal
of difference in flirts, also in flirt
ing. There, are, for instance, the
dear, charming little creatures,
who -hang confidentially upon
your arm, and look up into your
face, who drop their eyes in a pret
t half bashful way, and sigh as
t ough their poor little hearts
were actually breaking for you, and
who, all the while, are laughing
in their sleeves; for no matter how
small or tight they may be, (their
sleeves, we mean,) they manage
to laugh in them at the expense
of the poor, deluded fools, who are
conceited enough to believe they
have another to add to their list.
Then there is a bright, brilliant,
dashing flirt, who glories in her
"name and occupation;" who
boasts openly of all her conquests,
and tells you plainly to your face
she will carry off your heart in
ite of you; and, to tell the truth.
a6e rarely fails; for no matter how
sharp a look-out you keep, that
gay young damsel will manage,
somehow or another, to take you
And then bow she enjoys the
vietory-how she laughs outright
at your woe-begone looks, and
comforts you by saying she only
did itfor fun, as she "had nothing
else to do"-a great comfort to
know that your heart has been
used as a toy-as a foot-ball, for
She will also console you *by
sayingyou are not the first and
only sighing swain who is pining
for her smile; and she hopes you
will not be the last-perhaps she
has alle audacity to point out her
uert~ victim-with an encouraging
and cenfidential whisper, to watch
the.nextceese on the programme.
Strange to say, although the
young lady in question has "played
with ftre" ever since she was six
teen, her heart has passed through
the flames untouched.
But still, flirts generally get
caught1 and are, sooner or later.
"paid back in their own coin."

Elastic-Stitch Sewing Machines
ARE SUPE.RIOR TO ALL OTHERs FOR
THE FOLLOWING REASONS:t
1. They sew with two threads direct from the
spoole, and rejire no re-wit ding.
2. They are more easily und-rstood and used,
and less liable to derangement than other ma
8. They are cspable of executing perfectly.
without change of adjustment, a much greater!
ariet of work than other maehIaes.
4 Te stitch made by these machines is much
more firm. elastic, and durable, especally upon
articles which require to be washd and ironed,
than any other stitch.
6 This stitch, owing to the manner in which
the under thread is inwrought, is much the most
plump and beautiful in use, and retains this
plumpness and beauty evenu pon articles fre'.
quently washed and ironed until they are worn
6. The structure of the seam is such that,
though it be cut or broken at intervals ot' only
a few stitchs, it will neither open, run nor
rael, but remains fidm .ndstenaboth
endse of thme seam by their own operati.
8, With these 'machines, while i.ilk is used
upon the right or faced side of the .seam, cotton
may be used upon the other side without lessen,.
ing'the strengthm or durability of thme .seam TIhis
can t.e done on nmo other machine, and is a
great saving upon all articles stitched or made
up with silk
9. These machines. in addition to their supe
rior merits as instruments for sewing. by a change
of adjustment, easily learned and practised, exe..
cute the most beautiful and permanent em
broidery and ornamental work.
