A NEW IDEA.
What is One ot the Greatest Curses of
This Intellectual Age.
From Hearth and UIme.
One of the greatest curses of this
intellectual age is the great lack c'
p.oper education of our girls in the
practical affairs of every-day life. They
all want to be "schoolmarms'. gov
ernesses or the wives of rich men.
Household work. which shoul form
the basic principle of our econolic
life, is shunned by them as somIething
degrading. A young wonitii will
stand behind a dry goods counter tour
teen hours a day for a mere pittance-not
enough to clothe her-lose her health,
become aremic aud unfitted for the
performanee of her natural duties,
rather than accept a position a! a
domestic. where she would have a
comfortable horie, good health and
become properly fitted for the duties
of a wife and mother. The ranks of
the unfortunate are filled with shop
girls, who, having no place to spend
their evenings, seek the parks and
beer gardens, where young men, as it
were, lie in wait for them as their
natural prey. low many young
women can trace their downfall to
this misplacement of tieir talents?
Good domestics and wives who are
good cooks are so rare that when one
is found she is worth her weight in
We have schools in which our girls
are taught cooking, embroidery, music,
painting, school teaching, the lan
guages, but positively not one in
which is taught the art of house-keep
ing. Why? Simply because of the
prejudice against it. Yet all girls
desire to get married, which is very
easy to do, but it is very, very diffi
cult to live happily in marriage; and
where the wife has no knowledge of
the art of housekeeping, domestic
economy, or is a poor cook. be her
husband as rich as Croesuss _r lot will
be miserable. Such a woman is totally
incompetent to be a wife: her proper
place is in some garret "singing the
song of the shirt." While a man
admires womanly beauty, yet in mar
ried life he admires much more a good
square meal, cooked by the hands of
his wife or under her immediate direc
tions. What we mean by a good
square meal is not simply roast beef
and potatoes, with a piece of indiges
tible pie and a cup of ordinary cottee,
but a table co-ed with snow-white
linen, the chi id glassware shin
ing like so main miniature mirrors,
with bouquets of fresh blooming flow
ers in season, and napkins soft and
fresh from the laundry, not stif' as
pasteboard, so that they will slide
from your knees. These preparations
cost btut a trifle and are the invariable
precursor of a good appetite. No
dish should be served undecorated, the
fish and meat should be surrounded
with small pieces of either parsley or
beets, carrots or turnips cut by molds
into various knick-kuack devices, not
so much for eating as for ornamenta
tion, and also as an appetizer. For
puddings, melons, etc., pulverized
sugar should always be at hand, and
for iced tea a slice or two of lemon
with granulated sugar. These and a
thousand and one other little things
we could mention concerning the
table, cost no more than the slovenly
served, appetite-destroying foods of
the present time. Cleanliness of the
table should be coimportant with
cleanliness of the body. Such a table
would never fail to make home the
abiding place of true love and solid
But as we have no schools for teach
ing the above art what are we to do?
Why not establish one, establish a
dozen, yes, and in every city and every
village. Have it a school of practical
housekeeping. Instruct the pupils in
every department, from the scrubbing
of the front door steps to the myste
ries of the kitchen. Run it actually as
a boarding house. issue diplomas ot
graduation to your servant pupils
after a two, three or four years course.
Have each pupil begin by learning the
most merial labor, anid by degrees
advancing until she is thoroughly
qualifed in every department of the
scullery, chamber, laundry and kitchen.
Have her to do practical work, not
work in theory. Take in boarders,
charge good prices, give first-class
service, and as Colonel Sellers would
say, "there's millions in it." Will
any of our readers take the hint? A
diploma from such an institution
would insure marriage, and what is
still better happiness in marriage.

AUTOMATA IN FORM1ER CENTURIES.
Tranqlated from the German. by .. Bahimann.
Conlmbia, S. C., for the Daily Record.
Automata are called those machines,
or those moving lifeless objects, which
have concealed the motive power, and
corsequently seem to move of their own
accord; when they have the form of man
and perform hmAn actions then they
are also called androides. The motive
power generally consists of springs,
chains, weights, which can be easily con
Antiquity already knew automata.
The oldest automat was the great phi
losopher. Aichytas of Tarent, 400 years
B. C. He made a wooden pigeon, which,
as "Gellius" says, could fliv. Pausanius
mentions a moving wooden eagle, Po
lybius a creeping snail, which was made
by the celebrated orator and statesman,
5emitrius Phalereus, of Athens. In the
middle age the monk iloger Baco made
a wooden head, which could make a
speech. It is said that the celebrated
necromancer and philosopher, Albert the
Great, Count of Bollstadt, (1193-1280)
made a wooden figure which opened the
door for the visitors, saluted and appar
ently addressed them. On one occasion
the equally renowned philosopher,
Thomas of Aquino, became so terribly
frightened that he struck off the head of
the figure. This mishap caused the
manufacturer to exclaim that his work of
thirty years had been destroyed. The
distinguished mathematician, Job Mul
1er, made, among other works, a fly
which would move about on the table;
and an eagle which was placed on the
gate tower at Numberg, and welcomed
the Emperor Maximilian II. on his ar
rival in that city by moving its wings
and head. The Emperor Charles V.
found in his old age great pleasure in
works of art of this kind. The cele
brated Bullman of Numberg made
figures which marched to and fro, beat
ing the kettle drum and playing the late.
It is said that in the 15th century a
potter in Rome produced a flute player;
in 1688 the French General, Count
Geuner, made a peafowl, widch walbed
and ate; the missionary Thibaut made
for the Emperor of China a walking lion;
also a tiger.
Among the artists in the 18th century
the names of Pierre and Henri Louis
Droz (father and son) must be placed in
the foremost rank. The elder, Pierre,
was born in the Swiss canton of Neuf
chatel in the year 1721, died 1790; the
younger was born 1752, died 1791.
Among their works of art mention must
be made of a two year old child, who
wrote French words, dipping her pen in
the ink, and after each word would look
at her copy; the drawer also the size of
a two year old child; another draftsman,
the size of a grown man, could draw
with a metallic pencil on parchment very
rapidly: sketch followed sketch, and very
often they had to furnish him with
another piece of parchment; the piano
player, a young girl, who played several
pieces, following the music with her
head and eves, and after each perform
ance she would rise and bow to the audi
ence. The younger Doz made a snuff
box which contained a small bird, three
quarters inch long. Its wings were
green and yellow, it sat on a small gold
table, flapping itslittle wings, moving its
tail and delighted the audience with a
melodious song. The king of Spain was
presented by these artists with a wonder
ful clock, on which was a bleating sheep,
and a dog continually watching a basket
filled with fruit, and barking when any
one tried to take it oil. Vaucanson (born
at Grenoble 1709, (lied at Paris 1782)
showed in 1738 his celebrated flute play
er; it was a figure 51 feet high, sitting on
a pedestal, in which was concealed the
mechanism. This figure would put the
flute to the lips, moving the fingers regu
larly, producing good and correct notes,
and played several pieces. Another
automaton played on~ a shepherd's flute,
which he held in his left hand, and with
his right hand beat on a tambourine the
accord. A third work of art finished in
1741 was a duck made of bronzed
copper, which flapped its wings. stretch
ing out its neck to eat the corn scattered
before her, and digesting its food. The
inventor of this work of art was appoint
ed inspector of the silk manufactories at
Lyons, and the manufacturers threatened
to'stone him, fearing their sales would
be greatly diminished. The inspector,
hearing of this threat, made in retalia
tion the figure of an ass weaving cloth in
variegated colois. This machine con
tained innumerable chains, springs,
About the same time the Hungarian,
Wolfgang, born in Prenburg 1734, died
1804, created the greatest sensation with
his wonderful speaking and chess ma
chine. The first was invented in 1778,
and consisted of a wooden box 1 by 3
feet, in which, by means of a pair of
bellows and several springs, the voice of
a child was imitated. Several machines
have been made by Mical, Kratzunstein,
Posch, but generally with less success.
The wonderful chess machine, which
was shown to the Empress Maria
Thesesa in 1769, consisted of a figure,
natural size, dressed in the Turkish cos
tume, who was sitting before a table 3!
by 25 feet put on rollers. This machine
played chess with experts, and almost
always won, at which the inventor was
alwayvs present; and whether he directed
the play, or a person was concealed in
the machine, has never been satisfactori
ly explained, as no direct communica
tion had been detected. The inventor
was always willing to show his wonderful
machine'(when not performing), which
consisted of a number of chains, wheels,
levers and springs. The opinion pre
vailed that magnetism was the motive
power, but this theory was soon ex
ploded. This machine was on exhibition
in 1812 at Mailand, 1819 in London and
1822 in Paris.
Great excitement was produced by
Maillardet, a Swiss, in London, who
showed a wooden female figure, breath
ing naturally, moving her head, eyes and
body, and playing eighteen different
pieces on the piano.
Mention must be made of a vase, pre
sented by Frizard of Beil to Bonaparte,
(being then first consul), which, when
touched, by a spring would turn to a
palm tree, under whose shades a shep
ardess was spinning.

The Law of the Road.
TURN TO TiIE RIGHT.-The most iampor
tant law of the road is. that when two per
sons in vehicles coming fiom opposite di
rections are about to meet, each s11111
reasonably bear to the right of the middl
or traveled portion of the road. so that
they can pass each other withont inter
ferenee. A traveler is not required to keep
on the right side of the road all the time:
he can drive where he pleases or where the
going is best, so long as he turns to tie
right when he meets another vemele. If
the middle and usually traveled portion of
the road is very muddy, and for this or any
other reason persons are traveling along ihe
side of the road, then the one who is on the
left side of the read is in duty bound to
turn out. In Massachu;euts it was h-ld
that when the part of the road whicii
is wrought for traveling is hidden I
snow, and a path is beaten and traveled
on the side of the wrought path, per.
sons meeting on such side path are each
required to drive their vehicles to the rihit
of the middle of it. It should. however.
be remembered that this law of the road i,
not an absolute and inflexible one. Cir
cumstances may arise which N ould justify
a deviation from it, and when they do arise,
a traveler cannot stick blindly to the law,
and then claim damages if lie is injured.
In the crowded streets of a metropi
drivers are requixcd to -xercise very great
care, and when the high degre of carc
dictates a departure from this aw of the
road then it is not only justifiable, but Z
failure to observe it might cut off one.
right to recover damages if he is injured.
Thlis tuirnilig to 11.e right is just the oppositt
of that in England, which reoi.ires all
drivers to turn to the left. The rule of
turning in England is based on long-hon
ored custom; our rule is established by
statute in several States of the Union.
Foo- PAss-NoEss.-All persons havc
the same right to walk in the highway that
they have to drive Ilere, and they have the
same right to wilk in the middle of thc
street that.thev have to waltk oil tue foot
paths at the side. When one is walking in
the wagon track, he must observe greate:
care to avoid collision with vehicles, but
the fact of his b eing there is not of itsel
negligence. It is his duy to turn nut fni
teams, especiaiv if heavily un, a:
teamsters have 'o :ight to ran over hun
simply because he happens to be in the
way. They would be liable for the injury
if they did. Foot passengers have the un
doubted right to cross the street at any
time and place, and persons driving along
it must use due care not to run into them,
and must hold utp to let them get by. Thec
foot passenger must also exercise dtue care
to avoid injury, for if he does not, lie can
recover no dlamages if injured. if he sees
a team coming at a rapid rate he is not
justified in attempting to cross ahead of it,
nor should he attempt crossing a crowd~ed
thoroughfare without tirst looking care

.A Wealthy .3tan's son.
Nj:w Bimmswxin, N. J.,- October 20.
The tr-ial of John Patterson, which began
here to day, marks the beginning of the
end of a remarkable, career of crim" Pat
tersoni is the son of Ezekiel Patte?. -me
of the wealthiest citizens of this place, and
thie nephew of ex-Judge Patterson, who
ownis a large part of the town of Perth
Amboy. IHe was heir to all his father's
wealth, yet he left his home, associated
with tile roughs of the towna, was several
times arrested for drunkenness, finally took
to petty t'aieving, was acecused of assault,
and w-as, in short. thoroughly bad. His
father threatened to disinherit him, and
saveral times turned him out of the house;
but John became worse, and his trial to
day is the result of a charge made by his
sister that he came home one night to rob
the house and assaulted her when she dis
covered him. It is thought his conviction
is certain, although his uncle, the Judge, is
assisting in his defence, and his father has
hired the best counsel in the city. The
opeing of the trial was marked by an at
tempt of the defence to prevent 3fiss Pat
terson from testifying bccaus@ she is in
lined toward agnosticism. Friends of
Patterson say that although he is bad he
was made worse by the fact that his father
was too severe with him and too inclined
not to spare the rod.
'The Hlorrors at Sabine Pass.
GAuvEs-roN, Texas, October 10.-The
lcal relief committee that visited Sabine
Pass and went as far as the entrance to
Johson's Bayou has brought back a com
plete list of the names of the colored people
drowned at Sabine. Of the colored drowned,
:io bodies are still missing, while all but 15
of the whites have been recovered and in
terred. It is thought that some of the
missina bodies arc stuck in the mud, which
is several feet in depth on the bottom of
Sabine Bay and in the river fronting the
pot where the town formerly stood.
MIeasures for the relief of the distressed
are being acti veiy pushed at Houston, Gal
