to Put on
The editor of tlio Kiniira, Free Prat
is a married man, or, at least, we sup
pos) ho is. In discussing tho proposud
reform in female dress, which is to
thrust trousers (silk brocadod ones) up
on the fair sex, no comes to the front
with tho following timely advice, which
will doubtless bo appreciated by our
fair loaders: 'Wo liavo not," he says,
"the slightest ubjoction to the woai ing
of trousers on tho part of the sex to
which tho gown properly bolongs, but
it is only fair to loll thoju what danger
and discomforts tley are inviting.
Trousers, for instanco, cannot be put
on by drawing them over tho head.
Noithor can they be drawn on from the
other extremity while the person de
signing to wear them sits on tho floor.
To properly draw on a pair of trousers
requires dexterity, and a nice balanc
ing on one foot; and at times even ths
most export parsons are apt to step on
tho disengaod vacuum which occupios
tho floor, whilo the other vaouum is be
ing lllled." Tho friir would-bo wearers
are also warned that trousers only ex
toud to the waist and are never but
toned around tho neck, and that sua
pondors aro crossed on the back."
There Is no ivory wasto. Even the
powder is sold for making jelly. It is
said that ono leading cntlery firm In
Sheffield niiidu a calculation that to
supply tht msolves with the Ivory nood
ed lor their business they neodod 1,280
elephants every year, and that, evoo
with this number, the tusks were eacn
estJmatod to weigh 28 pounds.

I havo boon sitting here in tho twi

all its plonsuros, all its pains, my head
drooping lowor and lower on my hands
as I loaned out on the casement, seeing
only in a vision twilightsfsuch as this

a bright handsome face, and my own
How happy 1 was thon. If lifo could

what came after, I would try to boar up

lie whs handsome, witty, and admirod
by all. And I loved him well. As for
me, I was fair, with a beautiful face
anl golden hair.
Don't smilo, dear reader; the fair
round face and golden hair have long
since vanished, and 1 may Speak of it
now without vanity.
We wefe to be married in the fall,
and never was girl so happy as I.
Tho birds were twittering in tho
branches one morning as he came in
and drew mo toward him.
"Annie," ho said, the girls aro poing
on uu excursion to the woods in tho
morning, and want us to go. Aio you
"Oh, to be sure," I cried delighted.
"Well, then," he said, "little one, I
will be hero early, so prepare to start
So it was concluded we should go.
The next morning comes bright and
fair. It soemed as though tho sun nev
or shone so bright, tho birds never war
bled so sweetly, as on that day when I
threw open my shutters and looked ou'
on tho country with its fields of grain
and tasselled corn.
I hurried downstairs, happy with tho
thoughts of tho day, and prepared to
get ready to start
I cm see myself now, as I stood,
dressed in my white muslin, with lilac
ribbon in my hair and at my throat, aud
my gipsy hat coquettishly hanging over
Ah, roe! Pm an old woman now, and
when these things hare all vanished, il
won't seem like vanity to tell you thut
of all tbe maidens 1 should meet that
day, I knew I would be fairest. Women
know those things, if they do not tell.
I heard the latch of the gate lifted, and
sprang to m"et Ilirry, but a stranger
voice than his poke to tno.
"Waiting for Harry, Aunio? Hocan't
come; business wi. I l.ci p him away to
day." "Can't come!" I answerod, stopping
back a pace, and angered. "How do
you know, (Jeorgo SoamoreP"
But be took my hand very gently.
"Vou'ro disappointed, Annie, " ho
said, and looked sad at nw. "1 know,
booauso I mot him down the road. Ho
told me, and I thought you might bo
waiting, and would like to know."
"But why didn'thotellnieP" Iaskod,
fooling tho'crimson tido surging to my
forehead, as I thought of Harry having
so little thought of me, and this follow
knowing it Did he think I'd got ready
"If you aro disappointed, Annie,

thero'fl no girl round I'd rather havo
I looked ui quick at him. He was
tall and line looking. I was proud. I
felt -hurt and iudignant at Harry. If
ho thought I was wnx in his hands ho
was mistaken. I would let him hog that

I took timo to think this, and gavo him

How they stared at us. As for mo, I
was full of laugh und frolic. I felt soro
and sick at heart, aud to stifle the
thoughts in my mind, I jokod anil
laughed as I had never douo before.
Ah, it was a sad, sad day to me,
with Harry's faco coming to mo which
ever way 1 turnod, and the worst was,
as the day woro on, (ioorgo grew more
I tried to keep it back; Go I knows,
whon I saw tho look in his eyes that no

God knows what ho said. I only re

inoniout, as it wore, of trying to keep
the words from me that ho had spoken,
words so tondor, so passionate, so be

He did not havo long to sin, for be

and Harry and George Seamore were
down, struggling licrcely on tho

down on my knees beside them, implor
ing them for my sake. I tried with my
small strength to separate them, and as
my eyes took in the savage, cruel de
termination in the eyes so near each
other, and the tightening of the hands
around tho throat, I grew faint, au aw
ful blindness came over me, aud I

that I was truo to him; that I am trao to
him this day, though my hair has sil

seechingly at him that day have grown'
dim with tho horror of it.
Who can toll?
They told me gently, when I awoko
to consciousness days after, that Harry
was dead; that he called for me a few
moments after 1 left tho house, and ou
being told with whom I had gone, he
looked surprised, then hurt but say
ing ho would follow me, bad left tho

President Arthur's father-in-law, W.
F. Ilerndon, was a naval officer and a
brave and gallant man. Ho lost his

A Pretty Bsalthy Family
James do Rothschild, who died re
cently, was tho son of Nathaniel, aud
was married to his cousin Theresa.
With tho exception of the Roseberrv es
pousals, the Rothschild family havo in
terbred in the closest manner, until ono
would think that, according to the rules
of consanguinity, all tho dnm
ages arising from such family ali
anees would- become manifest. Tho
public must by this time bo very tired
of the story of tho origin of this family,
who, from tho humblest beginnings in
the Jews' quarter of Frankfort, became,
by dint of brains, honesty and luck, the
Croosuses of the European world. Tho
element of luck may or may not have
had much to do with tho social eleva
tion of these Semitic millionaires, but
the lute President's words in regard to
the fickleness of fortune aro worthy of
record; "Luck is an ignis-fatuus; you
may follow it to ruin, but never to suc
cess." That the Rothschilds are long
headed men, only the few are aware of
who enter into business relations with
them, but that they are large-hearted,
liberal and . charitable, all tho world
knows. They are great patrons of ai t,
and with their enormous wealth nro al
ways buying what aro tho finest und
rarest of esthotio treasures. Possibly
this man had more culturo than the or-
iginal stock, for the present off-shoots
enjoy an excellent reputation for liter
ary and Hrt'iNtie intelligence. But neith
er did Iho Rothschilds past or present
ever spin, weavo, hew wood, carry wat
er, break h tones, nor write even essays,
and should accordingly, to follow the
ideas of Gold win Srui h and the Sand-lot
orators bo all at once abolished. Wealth
may buy anything" nave a dignified
presence. Wo havo no exact semblance

but we have several pift.ure.sof tho Fug

grout wealth of the Rothschilds is sug

quoted, and which holds good to-day t

It would not bo an altogether bad
thing, says tho London tflube woro
some simple instruction in the elements
of domestic medicine included in the
School Board curriculum. Down at
Pnrkgoto, for instanco, somewhat ex
traordinary notions seem to prevail as
to tho host remedies for rhoumatism
and acute liver complaint A middle
aged man, in tho employment of tho
great local Iron company, being much
troubled by those diseases, ho and his
wife together elaborated a system' of
medicine in which they appoar to havo
placed unboundod faith. Tho main
specifics wore diluted laudanum -and
toa, strengthened with rum. In addi-
tion, however, to these simple concoc
tions, a variety of quack modicinos
were Imbibed from time to timo. Vet
the man tiled, and as tho required mod- .
ical certificate of death could not bo ob
taiuod, an inquest had to be hold. It ''
then camo out that evon when the poor
follow was artifulo mortis, his wlfo
still continued to believe In the efllcncy
of their joint prescriptions. When the -dying
man refused to take any more ,
laudanum, tie was presented with rum
and tea, which must have been pretty
stiff mixture, as it set him gasping for
breatu. more scorns no doubt that the
wife acted with the best intentions, but
for all that she was really dispensing .
what to a human boing in the condl- -tion
of hor husband, was nothing lesa
than poison. The faith of the poorer .,
classes In stimulants an l toa as remo- -dios
for all sorts of diseases seem to
continue as strong aa ever. In tho
Highlands whisky and . seal oil are
considered the most sovereign speol- "
fics. ' , '!: :,i ',:'
