A writer, in tirpin the neopssity for
more nttcnlioii to physical ciiltiuo,
notes s a favorable sin of tho fact
that "the pale intrrerstiiio:" ' typo of
beauty is fat losing its jiopularity, and
that men of position and influence are
declaring for the healthy standard of
womanly beauty, .such us was ever re
po;ni.'d by (jreeeo and Homo. This is
certainly an important and happy
chanyi! in public taste, and already the
clVeets of it are. to be detected in an im
proved condition of feminine health;
for it will hardly be denied that on an
average the women of to-day art) phys
ically superior to what they were a few
years aro, when ti;ht lacing and simi
lar destroying customs prevailed.
Young women take more exorcise
than they formerly did. They ridii and
walk more and more In the open air.
They have not the insane dread of the
Min's rays which they once had. Hut
there is much room for improvement
yet. Many liomt-H are still presided
over by invalid wives and mother, who
furnish a constant s-pectacle of sadness
ami misery to their family and friends,
and are a subj'.-ct of unlimited expense
to their husbands. In such homes the
greatest, of all blessings that could be
hoped for would be the health of the
mistres restored; but too olten it is
the one blessin;.' which never conies.
American homes, more than any
other perhaps in the world, have been
saddened by sickly women. And the
remedy is simple. American men are
as strong and healthy as those of other
nation-; there is no good reason why
American women should not be. All
thai is tieedod is proper attention to
dress and exercise. Let women dress
ns men do, so that their bodies shall
not bepipirpzed mid pressed together,
but have free room for motion, and let
them go out into tlie air ami-sunshine
as men do ami cxcreUe their bodies,
and the race of American women will
Dot beeomc extinct, as it once threat
, ened to.
On the contrary, it will be improved,
oui ii tip, ami tieaiuineo, ami a time
will shortly come when a healthy man
will not have to hunt a whole country
over to find a healthy wife. We are on
the right track now; all, that is needed
is to go ahead, and the result will soon
be manifest. Women will dio to be in
fashion; therefore let the fashion of fe
male beauty be vigor and strength, and
' all the ladies in the laud will be swing
ing dumbbeils, practicing archery, rid
ing on horseback, and walking as for a
; wager, but they will be in style.
It must be admitted-and the fact Is
Jreatly to our credit-that. Lord Chief

THE ARTIST'S IDEAL.
A small party of six persons three
ladies and three gentlemen were as
sembled in the library of Colonel Roger
Asliford's pleasant home, The Cedars.
From those open windows you could
view the distant hills beyond, whilst
the balmy summer air floated in upon
each passing breeze.
But at that moment these beautiful
surroundings appeared to give little
pleasure to the occupants of the library,
their thoughts were seemingly concen
trated within doors.
One of the gentlemen you would
have guessed him to be a lawyer was
seated at a table where writing materials
were "constantly placod.
Another, a fine-looking man of prob
ably thirty, was examining with critical
eye the well-stocked shelves, occasion
ally taking down some volume for a
casual inspection, while the third, and
owner of that mansion, walked restless
ly up and down the room.
Two of the ladies were seated to
gether, conversing in low tones, and in
their words we may sketch the story of
"Poor Eyelyn!" exclaimed the young
er one, glancing towards the object of
her compassion, who sat apart, profess
edly engaged in cutting open the leaves
of some new book. "Poor Evelyn!
young, rich, beautiful, yet undervalued,
it seems, by this laggard lover."
iOh. Mr. IvaHtingB," returned the
e?jpt4ady, ".surely, thosir are hard
words to say!"
"Don't look shocked, dear madame,
for I am constrained to say them. 'Tis
like a scene in a play, or chapter in
some German romance, where tho
tapers are lighted, the guests assem
bled, the minister at the altar, but the
bridegroom comes not!"
"Something must have occurred to
"Detain, forsooth! 'Tis now three
hours past noon, the time appointed
for signing of papers and other formali
ties upon this, dear Pivelyn's eighteenth
birthday. He ought to have been here
with tho sunrise and the opening flow
ers. But I don't believe Keith St. Clair
ever cared for her; and yet, in all her
sweet young life, she has given no
thought to another."
"They never met since childhood,
Mrs. Hastings a circumstance I now
regret, for in this, their early home, she
had been constantly reminded of him,
while he, educated away from us, sel
dom heard her name. They have so
different natures. Evelyn is devoted
and unchangeable, perhaps too greatly
for her own hAppiness, while Keith
(and though loving the dear boy as my
own son, I see his faults) ia inclined to
be the reverse. My husband and I be
lieved that in promoting this union we
were acting for their, welfare; but 'tis
an evil, rather than a good, when we
fallible and short-sighted mortals take
upon ourselves the part of the Desti
nies." "Oh, dear Mrs. Ashford, do not
blame yourselves! Look at their por
traits! What a noble pair seem these
two children of your adoption, as if
born for each other! Then, your own
having died in their infancy, Evelyn,
Colonel Ashford's orphan niece, was
the nearest by natural ties."
At that moment Mrs. Hastings ob
served her husband glance toward
them, and summoned him by a little

"A messenger from Mr. St. Clair,"
was announced as the door opened.
Then the courier, booted and spur

ride, entered and handed his missive to
"Keith is not coming," said he,
glanoing over his adopted son's lettor;
"ho writes from some out-of-the-way
spot among tho Adirondacks. Pray
read it aloud, Mr. Palmer."

Mr. Palmer laid down Keith's letter,
and glanced around upon the group.
The countenance of each implied in
tense interest, but the colonel was the
first to speak.
"It's a mistake a great mistake on
the young fellow's part nay, more, a
delusion! I never anticipated this, and
believed some serious accident had de
That would have been better," said
Mrs. Hastings, bitterly; "for then we
should have mourned our hero's fate.

'Oh, do not blame him," interrupted
Evelyn. "I admire his independence,
though deeply regret that I am to be

Even the matter-of-fact lawyer was
glad to escape from Evelyn's tearful
eyes and pleading tones.
The colonel would return no reply,
but his wife's womanly heart yearned
to tho poor, self-exiled young man, and
she wrote these few lines:
"Though deeply regretting your decision,
dear Keith, yet 1 pray you, if In any
trouble, fail not to communicate with your
old friend. Mahy A3HFord."
Then, with Mrs. Hastings, she left
the room to hand her note to the mes
senger, and from him they learned that
Mr. St. Clair was on the point of start
ing for Rome, at which city he pro
posed to remain throughout tho winter.
"To Rome!" cried Mrs. Hastings,
clasping her hands. "Graiville has
raved aoout going there ever since we
were married. Oh, dear Mrs. Ashford,
come out with me on the terrace. Even
your great house is too small for my
little body at this moment Come, and
I will unfold to you a charming plot
that woman's wit suggests."
And during that promenade Mrs.
Ashford shook her head and demurred,
and uttered "impossible."
Yet Cecil, somehow, always gained
her point when taking tho reins of gov
ernment into her own hamls.
, The little lady's tastes had altered
marvelously within a few hours. She

And then commenced a struggle be

"I fear Keith is far from rich," said
Mrs. Hastings confidentially to her
husband, "so let us pay him hand
somely. He is a dear fellow, a d so
splendid-looking that I just love him."
"And only a few weeks since you
bated him.'' .
"Well, dear, extremes meet, you
know," was her reply.
The sum proposed was far beyond
the artist's expectation, and half was
laid down in advance.
"For," said she, with a little malice
he was not quite forgiven "my
young friend has so many admirers
that one of them may parry hor off be
for the completion of the picture, and
your labor have been in vain."
At first Ethel was constantly accom
panied to tho studio by Mrs. Hastings,
but wearying of that self-imposed task,
she at length committed her protege to
tho care of an old Italian woman, who
told her beads and dozed over her book
Then tho artist, in his lonely explora

Tiffany's was far more enjoyable than

Each day it became more arduous
for Keith to meet this girl with the
love-light in her sweet eyes, and hold
firmly to his avowed tenets to dethrone
love and exalt art above all other influ
ences. The picture was almost completed,
when one day he walked with Etliel the

from tha floor where it had fallen, when

James Ward, who is known some
what extensively as' "Yorkey Pete," a
St. Louis bootblack, arrived in this city
by tho overland train recently. "Pete,
who is a native of New York, 19 years
of age, ami who looks every inch a
"shiner," called at the Examiner office '
ami gave an account of his much
checkered career. He says that at an
early age ho ran away from a comfort
able home in the east, and after drift
ing about for many months landed in,
St. Louis, having in his rambles be
come possessed of a box with a piece
of inch board nailed upon it A can of
blacking, antl a. queer looking brush.
With this stock in trade he began busi
ness for himself. Resolved to become
some day a man of importance, he ap
plied himself studiously, and he has
now the snug little sum of $20,000. ;
"Pete's" greatest achievement, and !
one of which ho speaks with pride, was ;
the erection about a year ago of a $40,-.'.
0OU home for newsboys, on Olive street,
between Eleventh and Twelfth, in St
Louis. To raiso this money, he says,
ho took the "stump;" and in several '
seasons' lectures gathered sufficient .
funds for the completion of the work.
A few years ago he organized a striko
among the St. Louis bootblacks, and
performed the great act of raising tho
price of shines from 5 to 10 cents.
"PoUs" will remain in San Francisco
for two months, after which he will go:
to Australia and thence to England,
occupying about twelve months in his
journeyings. When asked what ho in
tended doing during his stay in this'
cityj he said ho was "going to walk
about and act like a gentleman." His
mother, he says, is one of the most fam

really is a public benefactor, and does
positively cure, then we consider it our
duty to impart that information to all.
Electric Bitters are truly a most valuable
medicine, and will surely cure Biliousness,
Fever and Ague, Stomach, Liver and Kid
ney Complaints, even when all other rem
edies fail. We know whereof we speak,
and can freely recommend them to all.
