One thing about these "Knights of

fellows for secret societies. Most
all drummers belong to everything

"Sons of Intemperance.'' I am

My old friend Henry Wasser cal
led on me the other day to see if I
wanted any groceries and to have a
visit. We had a jolly time. While
we were sittin in the office a chap
came in and wanted to borrow $2
because of a remittance not coming
to him as he expected. I told him
my S2 I kept to loan, was in now,
having been returned the day before
by Matt Keck, but I never lend it
except to drummers. He said :
"That's me." I gave him the grand
hailing sign of Odd Fellows, which
he tumbled to. Then I came to the
great "Hair in the Soup" grip of the
Pytbianics. He tumbled. Then
Wasser gave him the G. B. of the
sons of Malta He was on to it.
Then I tipped him the air-poking
signal of the "Touch-Up Club."
He smiled and said : "H. 0." (this
is a technical term.) Next Hen.
Wasser struck out his hand and
gave the P. D. Q. sign of a Royal

that. Then Wasser examined him

Although housekeeping and home
making are the most important of all
things, yet they are sought after the
very least. Girls get married who
do not know how to make a loaf ot
bread or boil a potato, expecting
somehow that these things will take
care of themselvse, and they can live
happy with a man in his ignorance,
knowing too that the heart and stora
ach of man are so friendly that they
cannot be separated. Ignorance
cannot be made bliss in housekeep

THE HEW WOMAN.
Just now who "the new woman"
of the day is, upon whose much
heralded advent many good and
sober minded people have taken
fright, remains a mystery. That
times are changing, and women ad
vancing into broader fields of educa
tion and usefulness, no one in his
senses can doubt. The real new
woman which the twentieth century
will give to grace the decade of its
successors, will be one, who, to the
gentle, feminine attributes of her
colonial ancestors, will add the
strength of self reliance and the force
of systematic, intellectual training.
A wider experience in life, and an
extended knowledge of human na
ture, have never yet retarded the
wheels of progress or deracinated
society, and there seems no very
good reason to oelieve that different
results will prevail, because women
possess these advantages. Immut
able nature has mapped out to wo
mrn her sphere. The golden chains
of love and maternal devotion bind
her willingly to it. She could not
leave it if she would, and she would
not if she could.
So after the extravagances and
exaggerations that are now following
naturally enough in the wake of the
movement which is advancing wo
man into a higher position in the
social system shall have settled down
as extremes attendant on reforms
have done before, the real new wo
man will appear, as true to herself
ana her vocations as any cf her
predecessors. If the spirit of her
time menus her duties, In some
Instances into public life, there she
will conduct herself with dignity and
ability. She will preside at the fire
side, a fair and stately figure, none
the less lovable because adorned
with more of the graces of Minerva,
as well as those of Venus s none the
less companionable because.of her
better understanding of things that
