s the orphan ohildren of the city, of

id in number, seated upon the steps

; was accompanied with its own

and made beautiful by roses

varieties. I was very much struck
with the very due range of hot houses,
in which were growing fruits and
flowers of great variety. After lunch
eon we vesumed our journey sixteen
miles away. The roads were most
beautiful (as all Irish roads are,)'the
ocean on one side and (hi mountains
on the other, aud arrived at the
Giant*e Caucoway H jtel.. Next morn
I ing was lovely, not a breath of wind,
and we were informed by our guides
that it was an exceptiorially floe day
to do the Causeway. So we started
down the cliff, embarked in a whole
boat for the caves. Anything like
the beauty of , these oavs I had never
.imagined; there we were floating in
the water fifty to seventy-five feet
deep, and the roofs of the caves one
hundred feet above us. The sides
and arches of the cayes were composed
of a dozen different huge^rooks, and
on the ledges high above our heads
eat large sea-birds, with thoir young
ones, and a quaint old man with a
pistol sat on the rooks at the entrance
of the oave. He fired the pistol and
the echo of the shot was something
astounding. It seemed as if a huge
oannon had been fired instead of a
small pistol, and the echo rolled on
through the oave, and seemed to vi
brate far into the earth. Some of
these caves have an entrance from the
land, and 'others have not, or if they
have they have never been discovered.
After leaving the oaves the boatman
rowed us past the Grand Causeway,
which is magnificent and truly a won
derful eight. After passing the Grand
Causeway we came to the Giant's
Amphitheatre, in the center of which
we were shown a number of vast up-,
right columns, which looked from the
distanoe very like ihe pipes of an
organ. We were struck with this
likenojs before our guide told us that
this was called the Giant's Organ.
After leaving the Amphitheatre we.
came to some upright rocks, two hun
dred and fifty feet above us, which we
were informed were called the Chim
ney Tops, and were also told that the
Spanish Armada, in the reign of
Queen Elizabeth, mistook them for
Dunlouce Castle and opened fire on
them, and unfortunately for the Span
iards one of these large vessels struck
a sunken rock and was wrecked, and
to this day the bay is known as the
Spanish Bay. After leaving the
Chimney Tops we passed Amphithea
tre after Amphiatheatre, some of
which were so perfeot as to look like
they were out out designedly, by the
hand uf man. The last place we were
shown Was the Horse Shoe Bay, a
deep body of water surrounded by
rocks in such a manner as to look ex
actly like a horse shoe. Above the
Horse Shoe Bay we were shown the
Nurse and Child Rook, which bears
a wonderful likeness to a woman with
a child on her back. After this we
came back to the Causeway and were
shown the Giant's Wishing Chair,
where we sat and made three wishes;
then Lord Antrim's Parlor, thelHigh
landman's Bonnet and the Giant's
Well, a beautiful spring of water,
coming ont 'neath a vast headland four
hundred and fifty feet high. We
dran?: some of the water and found it
deli^ously cool and pure. After this
we adjourned to the hotel for lunoheon,
where we enjoyed fresh salmon, young
duek and green peas, with vegetables,
Next day we drove to Dunlouce
Castle, one of the most picturesque
ruins in Ireland, perched upon the
edge of a precipice several hundred
feet above the level of the sei. With
a vast chasm between it and toe
mainland, it must have been a formi
dable fortress in the days before oan
non were invented. There is a spring
in the castle, and also a oave running
under the rook it is built on, whioh
gave the inhabitants an entranee and
exit to and from the ocean. Alto
gether it is a most interesting sight.
Wo nfixt visited Port Rush, a fashion
able watering place, and then resumed
our journey to Dublin.
We heard one of the finest organs
in. the country at St. Patrick's Cathe
dral. Then we drove to the Straw
berry Beds, a beautiful drive of six
milc3 from Dublin. Here we en joyed
strawberries and cream, and anything
like th? sise and flavor of these bet/ies
is hard to imagine. We then drove
through the Phoeuix Park, one of the
most extensive in Europe, and con
taining a great herd of deer of differ
ent varieties, principally the old Irish
red deer. We saw where Lord Caven
dish and ^?r. Burke were murdered by
the Irish Invincibles in the park.
Next day we went to Glasnevio Ceme
tery, where numbers of distinguished
Irishmen are buried, the, patriot
Daniel O'Connor among them.
After spending a few days in Dub
lin we went to tho city of Cork to see
the fixation, ?joycd very
much. We then we?? to the Lakes
of Killaruoy, which my pen cannot pic
ture. Surely there is nothiogin England
or Scotland as beautiful as Killer acy?
its lakes, its streams, its hills and val*
leys, its mountains, wood and water,
harmoniously blent, constitute the
most perfect loveliness that nature
presents. It surely must be professed
that it has in all the world no equal.
After remaining here a few days
longer, we go to Glasgow and Edin
burgh for a week, thence to London
?nd, as a matter of course, see Paris.
The weather has been perfect, only
one wet day since we left home. It is
as cool here as our October days; we
wear flannel and heavy wraps.

CHOOSING A WIFE.
An Important Subject Interestingly
We wrote a week or two ago on the
Guojeot of "Home-making," and in
doing so were perhaps a little prema
ture if it was to be followed up by the
theme we have chosen today; since
oertainly the selection of a wife is a
step in advance of making a home for
her. After all, we are not quite sure
if the process of falling in love and be
coming engaged can always be describ
ed as ''Choosing * Wife" since there
are so many oases where no deliberate
ohoioe is made. A man?particularly
if he marries when quite young?sel
dom goes through so slow a process as
making a ehoiee. He just falls heels
over head in love with some pretty
girl and asks her to marry him, with
searee any thought of the future or
any consideration whether they are
really suited to eaoh otner. If she is
equally reokleso she says "Yes," with
just as little thought of the serious
ness of the step she is taking, and it
is only after they are married that they
begin to find out whether they have
been fortunate in their selection of
eaoh other, or if they are going to
be perfectly miserable beoaueo they
are uneuited to live together.
By the time a man has voted two or
three times he generally begins to
have a pretty clear idea of the sort of
woman he wants for his wife. No
doubt that ideal will closely resemble
some lady of his acquaintance, al
though he may not actually be in love
with the original of the picture he has
in his mind. As the years go on it is
more and more difficult to find anyone
that quite comes up to his notions;
sometimes when he thinks he has suc
ceeded in doing so a little thing will
convince him that he is mistaken, and
that the person he was just on the
point of addressing is not what he
fancied her to be. He is a fortunato
man when he disoovers this mistake
in time; for it is much easier to get
over the disappointment before mar
riage than afterwards. The trouble
is that when a man ib really in love he
cannot see clearly, and he imagines
that the girl has all the perfections of
mind and heart for whioh he is seek
ing. During courtship and the period
of engagement most couples wear
masks, and it is with the masks they
are mutually in love. Sometimes a
little misunderstanding or a lovers'
quarr ;! gives eaoh of them a glimpse
of the real oharaoter whioh the mask
hides, and a broken engagement is the
resnlt. Both rejoice that their un
8uitability for eaoh other was discover
ed before it was too late; but that does
not prevent their making as much of a
failnro in their next venture. And,
after all, those who set out in search
of perfection are likely to go unmar
ried all their days. It is best they
should recognize this fact and, remem
bering their own shortcomings, be
willing to" make allowance for small
faults, and to exercise the forbearance
whioh is no doubt needed oc both
The longer a man defers marriage
the harder he is to please, and the odd
part of it is he is very likely to make
a poor matoh after all. It comes
about in this way. Ho goes on pick
ing and choosing and hesitating
whether to propose to this woman or
to that, until some fine day he sees
those he prefers carried off by other
men, and awakens to the fact that he
is not so yonng or attractive as he
once was, and that young women pre
fer the society of younger men to his..
When this mortifying realisation
oomes to him he begins to fear that ho
is doomed to single blesBednesS all
his days, a thonght that is by no
means pleasant to him. Consequent
ly he rushes off and proposes to the
first young girl who flatters him by
treating him nieely, or he marries for
money or some other equally practi
cal reason. It may be asked how is a
man to find out ? whether a girl will
make a suitable wire foa>him, when
appearances are not always to be trust
ed. There is no way except to marry '
her. Unless some gliring defeot re
veals itself during courtship there is
no testimony that oan h* entirely re
lied upon. Nothing that his friends
or hers cao say will be quite impartial,
so many diverse motives influence
their opinions and warp their judg
ment of what is suitable for him.
Some women are incorrigible match
makers, and are never $o happy as
when iuey have got two of their
friends 4'settled for life" as they ex
press it. They are probably in ear
nest in thinking them exactly suited
for each other, but the obsneen are
that in their seal they eolor tome vir
tues and conceal some defects so as
to smooth awi y . any obstacles that
might prevent the match upon whioh
the/ set their hearts. How can any
third ' party know the aspirations
and needs of two human hearts or
the infirmities of human tempers?
But suppose all the preliminary
eteps have been taken and the irrevo
cable vows have been made?fortu
nately in our State such a nupposition
is admissible?how can a woman beat
oonvinoe her husband that he has
really chosen the right sort of wife?
Unless he be the veriest idiot she will
not do so by talking about woman's
rights and assuming supreme control
of the household. No man worth
talking about ever submits to be open
ly ruled by his wife. Her influences
and persuasions can easily bend his
will, but a masterful attempt to con- j
trol him never suooeeds. Even though ,
all a man's friends may be ccgr.izisl
of the fact that his wife rules him, he
is rarely conscious of the faot, with
such tact does she conceal any out
ward manifestation of authority. If
she expresses an opinion upon some
family matter and he disagrees with
it, she does not srgue the point, or
give wsy to frowns and tears, she sim
ply waits and lets him think the mat
ter over and, as a rule, is rewarded
by his coming around to her view, and
doing so in suoh a way as would make
one believe the idea originated with
him. Patienoe and good temper
achieve more viotories than any other
qualities in domestic concerns, and
tears are the worst weapons a woman
can uce, although they are supposed
to be so effective. No man cares to
live in a oontinual shower bath of
tears, and their constant dropping
wears out love faster than anything
Perfect truthfulness and confidence
between a couple is absolutely neces
sary to true happiness. There can be
no lie between them so small as to be
harmless, and tl j first discovered pre
varication awakens distrust of every
thing said thereafter. Again, a wo
man should never employ the few
hours her husband can spend at home
by telling him every little domestic
misfortune that happened in his ab
sence. He probably cannot help it if
the servants are not perfect or if the
children were disobedient in little
things, or if any of the other machine
ry of the household, which it is her
duty to attend to, docs not run quite
smoothly. If he is a manly fellow he
does not bother and worry her with
the unpleasant inoidents of the day's
business and she should show equal
forbearance. Probably he has had a
hard day and has come home hoping to
find rest and cheerfulness, and if his
wife ia the right sort of one she will
be quick to see that he is tired and
j will do what she can to make the home
bright for him. Again, the right sort
, of wife is even more particular about
j her dress than she was > in the days
when her husband came oourting. It
' is a perfect miraole how affection can
I endure when the pretty, well-dressed
girl gradually sinks into the untidy,
careless wife and mother as is so de
plorably often the case. And last of
all, the right sort of wife is religious.
No matter what a man's opinions on
such subjeots may be, he cannot help
feeling there ** something wanting in a
woman who has not reverence for
sacred things. To have that rever
ence for womanhood that underlies
the pure love of a husband for his
wife he must Chink of her as infinitely
better than himself. Sometimes he
eves feels that her goodness will
oount something for him, too, in the
day when accounts are made up.?

A'Yessg Lady's Life Saved.
Dr. Chas. H. Utter, a prominent
physician of Panama, Colombia, in a
recent letter states : "Last March I
had as a patient a young lady sixteen
years of ago, who b*d a very bad at
tack of dysentery. Everything I pre
scribed for her proved ineffectual and
she was growing worse every hour.
Her parents were snre she would die.
She had become so weak that she could
not turn over in bed. What to do at
this critical moment was a study for
me, but I thought .of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
and aa a last resort prescribed it. The
most wonderful result was effected.
Within eight hours she was feeling
much better; inside of three days she
was upon her feet, and at the end of
one week was entirely well." For

Kissing the Hand.
There is a movement on the part of
certain fashionable Londoners to en
deavor to introduce again the graceful
old custom of ni.n kissing women's
hands by way of greeting. As might
be supposed, the movement is inau
gurated by the women, who feel, pro
bably, that the mere handshake does
not sufficiently accentuate Man's pro
per subjection to the lady fVr.?Au
gusta (Ga.) Herald.
That would be much preferable to
the way ladies sometimes now allow
men in walkingwith them to place their
arm under that of the lady and then
grab her by the hand or wrist and go
sauntering through the streets. One
ie a momentary evidence of respcot
while the other is a continuous per*
fcrm&?we of holding hands. Then
again, in telling a woman good-bye it
has become quite the custom for a
man to take the woman's hand and
hold it while he carries on quite a con
versation with the lady. Both the
manner of telling-good bye and the
manner of holding a woman's hand or
'wrist while walking are disgusting and
should be abolished. It would be
much preferable for u woman in walk
ing with a man to put "the tips of
her digets in the crook of the elbow
of the man."
That was the cuBtom of our fore
fathers and mothers. Girls now say
that that is antiquated and that they
would be considered slow if they did
that. We would prefer a slow girl
for a wife to the advanced one and so
would any sensible man.
If hand kissing will abolish the ous
|.tom named, then let it come, and come
quick; but if it is only to add ont
more advanced fad, we trust that it
will remain across the ocean. ,
Any new roles that would make
men, show more respect for women
ought to be hailed with delight.
We suppose that the habit of men
in sitting so close to ladies that you
could not pass a Bheet of paper be
tween them is considered a mark of
respect to the ladies; but it might be
that the voices of both sexes arc not
as strong as they used to be, and that
they have to sit close together in
order that they may hear each other
In olden times it was considered
proper for a young man to pit on one
side of a fireplace and the lady on the*
other in paying a call. They conver
sed just as well that way as they do
now and the men had a great deal more
respect for woman than is shown now.
We do not mean that all ladies adopt
advanced ideas. God bless them,
there are as true women today as ever
lived and those the men seek for
wives. But from the new woman with
advanced ideas, may the good Lord
deliver us, quiok. All men should
join in that pnyer.
We will agree to the hand-kissing
as of old if the man is not exneoted
to make a continuous performance of
it every time he meets a woman.
