Dr. Richardson is one of tho mot
eminent physicians of Londoii.aud bis
opinion on any subject eonuecied with
health or disease is worthy ol respect.
When, there fore, he announces that
the cor-i't "deadens the menial capa
bility of women" he furnishes a new
and powerful argument against that
almost iiiiiver-ally-woin article.
TheiM ha been, so the most pro
found dre-niuakers assure us, a won
derful progress in the construction of
the corset during the present century,
ISixty years ago it was modeled in
shape ami method of construction
upon the common barrel of commerce.
It consisied of a series of boards and
staves, set on end around a nucleus of
girl, and held together by cordage in
stead of hoops. This remarkable
smii'tuio was iu general use in New
En-land in the days of Purit iiiism,
and undoiibiedly was closely connect
ed with the general prevalence of
au-lere morality iu tho Puritanic
community. U constituted an im
permeable defense against fnvs, and it
chilled the ardor of the worldly
minded lover, wiio found no delight
in the pint. let o' wood and coat-sh eve.
The. New England small boy would
sometimes borrow the corset of mi
alio liojiiiie sister prior to a personal
interview with bis father in the wood
shed, and there is no doubt tint when
worn abnormally low, it alfonled ef
li -ieiil proltvlioii against the parental
rol. It W is, however, a source of
g.e.il di-coin.o.'i lo the legilitTnte
v.ean r. and (he unyielding nature ol
th : slid', straight boards of which
it was couipo-cl, cd'cetually prevent
ed ii ir i,i coming into use outside ol
New England except in isuhted an I
liei'ii'iial'l v lionv cases.
To the wood mi corset sticceedml tiic
v. li.ilcooiie corset, which was intro
duced into the country iu the e.ir
Is:il. The characteristic feature of
this corset was the suhsliiii; ion of
wbalebone for wood. Uinpie-tiona-bly
this was an improvement siuco
the whalebone was f) some extent
lb'xihle. Experience siioued, bow
ever, thai tin; whaleooiie was liable
to break, and had to be frequently re
newed. In fact, the wearer was
oidi.ed to furnish herself a new set ot
"ooiu.-,'' as they were technic. dly
called, once every six months. A
stiil graver fault was the tendency of
an oecasioi.al bono to vtork upward
an I outward. Aeideius rivaling iu
horror these formerly caused bv Vail-
way "snake-bends," became painfully
common, and tho young huso. m, w ho
had siiivc d -d in pas-i, g through tho
period of coiiriship without sustain

l ite years it is understood that tho
corset has been modeled so as to lit the
tigiue, al ietst to some extent, and
lieiico the usual physiological argu
ment against the cor-ici has lost much
of its lorce. There is, however, an
obvious dilUcuily iu obia'ndng the ex

since there is a great and manifest dif

Buildings Made of Concrete.
.Tew farmers know how to build a
eoiicre e wall .yet it is a very simple
job, nu. I iu in iny cases would" prove an
excellent wall for buil lings and cel
lars, 'lo buil I such a wall you need
to set ,'lxl j list at the corners, I lieu at
intervals oi'about eight loct along' the
outside of tho wall, placing tho joists
opposite and ah nit eighteen inches
npirt. On the inside of llio joist set
up plank about a foot wide. There
will bo fifteen inches between these
planks, which will bo the thickness of
the wall. For a largo building,
which would have heavy floor tim
bers, tho wall might botwo feet thick;
for a pijgery or other small buildings
it need not i e so thick, llavo a ce
inent made by mixing a barrel of good
cement with ihreo barrels of fine plas
tering sand and four barrels clean
gravel. Wet this when mixed so It,
will bo thick enough to pour, ami till
between tho planks, about throe in
ches deep, then In that pack small
8loncs as closely as possible tho inoro
closcly the stone pack the lessceinout
it will take. Then pour on more ce
ment and put iu moro stone until
your space i full. Tho work must
bo so planned as to uo your coition t
and get tho stones in it before it ha
timo to harden. For a heavy wall
planks may bo raised iu twoniy-four
hours alter the space is filled. Kaiso
them about ton inche and go on as
before. Wo havo seen a barn built
in that war, which has stood many
years; cosis aboiH tho same as timber
wall when I'Uilt, an I noods no paint,
no shingles, no repairs of any sort,
while tho walls are tlrc-proof and rat
proof. '- .
