of Knowledge In Curving Often
Itt'sult In Trouble.
One of the most necessary appurten
ances of the dinner table is a host who
knows how to carve. Is there any
greater annoyance than a host who
struggles, crimson with effort, to dis
joint poultry, tearing the frame to
pieces, nnd spreading bits and frag
ments all about on the cover? It should
be a part of every boy's education to
learn to carve. We are so busy training
girls for their future positions, which

for it, but also a training in the social
graces, and the necessary knowledge of
household economy, that we never think
of doing more for our boys socially than
sending them to dancing school and
giving them the natural training in the
home; we leave them to acquire any
further knowledge by attrition or ab

tive to tho fitness of thintrs in the
family life, the lack of this very neces
sary knowledge is a constant source of
irritation. There comes to mind a no
ble gentleman, of Welsh descent, who
never had a large income, but who
trained all his sons and daughters to
carve, and when they went into homes
of their own they could server a dinner,
with the uid of one servant, with the
case and quiet of a house with butler
and aids. Who of us has not sat at
table, at some time, where the struggle
of the host with the carving suggested j
the idea that presently he would nsk if
he might remove his coat? It is far
better, when the host has not this
knowledge, to have the carving done
outside, in butler's pantry or the kitch
en. It saves embarrassment, and when
once the servant is trained to serving
from a sideboard, the ease and comfort
that follow are ample reward for the
effort expended in teaching her.
Every wife who has been embarrass
ed by her husband's awkwardness or
ignorance in this important function
should have a strong incentive to have
her boys trained to carve "fish, flesh or
fowl," with ease of body and mind.

that the crape on the door was nothing

take it in, and it had hung on the door
knob all night. lie was mad and glad
all at the same moment, but ho yanked
the umbrella from the door and threw
it into the street. His wife had a big
laugh at him and then went out and
saved the umbrella. Uoodall's Sun,

A Traveling Outfit.
A woman who ought to know de
clares that the following outfit is all
that is necessary for a round-the-world
tourist of the gentler sex: A light mack
intosh that will stand hot climates; a
dust cloak, a traveling-hood, and plenty
f wraps. Three hats for the steamer
will not be too much, as they soon get
to look shabby and travel-stained. A
soft black silk that will pack into a
small compass, and does not easily
crease, will be useful as a chancre for
inner, with some silk blouses or
theater-waists to varv it. A neat
tailor-made dress for the voyage, a
jacket and an ulster arc needed, and
also two or three cool dresses. Wash
ing silks are more desirable than cotton
or zephyrs, as dampness does not affect
their appearance. Furs are not only
in the way, but a boa often proves use
ful. For inland, a couple of ball-
dresses for evenings receptions, also one
for fetes and theaters; a riding habit, a
stylish silk dress, a home-spun and an
embroidered cambric or two. A deal
case lined with tin, to contain the best
dresses: a strong box for linen, boots,
shoes, books and odds and ends, two
regulation portmanteaus, one for the
light weight, the other with the heavier
articles of apparel, besides a Gladstone
bag and wrapper, ought to suffice a
lady tourist for a journey of many
months over land and and sea. N. Y.

Tin- Long Clonk.
Long cloaks have decidedly won the
battle over the stout opposition that
was shown to them at the beginning of
the season. A long cloak lor winter is
a logical necessity. But it is neither
necessary nor logical to wear a hand
some visiting toilette, and have it com
pletely hidden from view under a long
wrap. To escape from this dilemma
long cloaks are made of various kinds.
There is first the indispensable morn
ing cloak, very simply made of some
substantial woolen. For those who
prefer a long wrap for making ceremo
nious calls there arc rich wraps of fig
ured velvet or plush with superb passe
menteries, or of armure silk handsome
ly embroidered. These, in a measure
take the place of the dress, and can be
worn over a comparatively simple one.
Between these two extremes are long
cloaks of cloth, made much like adres,
with tight-fitting corsage, high collar,
large sleeves with deep cuffs, and a
basque belt of passementerie; these are
worn for informal visits to one's friends
between two and four o'clock, and for
similar occasions. Harper's Itazar.

A Public Iload Law.
Judge Tyler was called to Nash
ville Monday by the committee
charged with the duty of perfecting
a road law. The committee wanted
to know the details and nractical
workings of the jail and work-house
system, i n Montgomery county.
Judge Caldwell, of Davidson, was
also before the committe, and all
labored together earnestly to devise
the best possible general system for a
road and work-house law for the
State, and after a thorough discussion
of all the plans presented in different
bills, the committee unanimously
adopted the Montgomery county sys
tem, all interested parties approving
it, and a new bill, embracing this
system will be introduced in both
houses at the same time and will no
doubt pass. This bill, as we under
stand, provides for a general work
house system for every county in the
State and a commutation of short
penitentiary sentences to the work
house with provisions for employing
such criminals so convicted, on pub
lic roads. The system has worked
splendidly in this county, much good
has been accomplished under it,
though imperfect and limited in its
operations. The new bill, if it be
comes a law, will have a wider scope,
adapted to the wants of the whole
State and will greatly lessen the
number of convicts in tho penitent
tiary, working reforms that will be
creditable to the State and economi
cal to the public.
