A recent lltor to the rural retreat of

statesman, with a bunch of keys hanging
from her girdle. Hut khe was quite u

mestic duties a 0f jjer diamonds when
receiving the dlplomatl-t.s of the world,

capital. And lie who Is privileged to
ee the empress herself durinir tlie morn

gugcu in arranging or iiiisiing ner pri

is iald to attend to regularly. It
is no wonder. tlierefoie, that
any ytcin ot bringing up young
girl- which would render these good custom-

The general feeling of the tjermans of

the wife and mother having any duties
out-ide the liou'e, except those of gen

woman' j hand- and Presence are most ef

A nice circulation ou the sheep and
dog question will be found in the follow
ing article clipped from the New Vork
Sun : s
The dogs ure increasing at a fearful
rate every year, and the evil of sheep kill
ing lias become fo great that something
iuut lie done, and done needllv. Tlie
article we quote presents the question in
a concise but imposing shape, so far as
Misouri Is concerned. If tlie facts were
collected In Mii-Isslnpl, we doubt not
that the results would be equally tart-
lltiK. l.t sometlilnjr be. done to cure so
serlou- an evil:
"A Missouri farmer, alter a long cal
culation, presents the following facts con
rernliijr tlon: In tblrtvnvo -miifrs
10,CW sheep have been killed by dogs.
llcr-tlMiittes the number ol dogs in thev;
thirty-two counties to be IC!,(KKJ ; that n
hog will thrive on the food necessary to
support mi able-bodied dog, and at" the
end ot n year weigh 200 pounds ; there
tore, It the food lor the'e -JW.OOO dogs
went to the hogs, it would make iii.OOU,
OOU pounds of pork, worth, at six cents
a pound, $l,f-.,0.XX) nearly twice the
value of all the school-house In the litate
for school purpo-es:."
Never was there sucii a falling oil in
the price of diamonds as there lias been
in the ease of those sent by the Khedive
to tlie collector ot the port ol New Vork,
tokecptorMinni" Sherman Fitch. When
they first came they were regarded as
dirt-cheap at SIOU.OUO, and now the
Jewelers' Circular says : "Tlie estimates
of the value of these jewels have been ex
aggerations beyonit nil precedent, and
$ 10.fKJ really represents the most liberal
valuation that can Ik- put upon them, the
number and -ize of tlie diamonds are so
counterbalanced by their oil-color.
