A WOOD NCUK5IK.
St. Louis has an institution which is a step
in the right dinction.and which has long been
needed in this country, called the Woman's
Traininc School, where all useful as well as
ornamental work is taught. On one day les
sons are given in the cooking of broiled mut
ton chops, fried cauliflower, raspberry trufle,
aid chocolate cake. The next day the lesson
is in roast beef, baked Irish potatoes, rice
custard, and white cake. This is followed
by cooking lessons in broiled fish, with egg
sauce, stewed cabbage, orange custard, and
sponge cake Lessons are also given in cut
ting goods for clothing, and sewing in orna
mental needle work and the work known as
Kensington. The institution is very flourish
ing. This is very valuable and commendable
innovation, and it is hoped that the example
will be imitated in other parts of the country,
not but what women generally do 'more
drudgery and real hard labor in the manage
ment of the house than they should do ; but
for the fact that such institutions would give
them a better training and enable them to
more practically solve the doubtful question ol
what are the duties of a housekeeper. The
real, actual head of the family is the woman,
and whenever our civilization reaches the
point that she can so order her household in a
manner that will do away with the thousand
and one petty vexations, unknown to the
aliened head, then will homes be more pleat
ant and women generally show by their beauty
and vigor and vivacity, that the terrors of
housekeeping were more of a reality than the
most pegged out wife or mother ever claimed
A grand reunion of the surviving partici
pants of both armies engaged in the battle of
Wilson creek, will be held on the old battle
ground, and at and near Springfield, Mo., on
August 8, 9 and 10, l88j, underline head of
"Blue and Gray," Tiie invitation committee
have issued the following circular, which will
interest thuse surviving Texans who were un
der the command of McCulloch and
Mackintosh on that memorable occasion :
On the loth of August, 1861, was fought
the battle of Wilson creek known in the
South as the battle of Oak Hills in Greene
county, Missouri, about io miles southwest of
the city of Springfield. It was one of the
most desperately fought and eventful battles
of the late war between the North and the
South. The Federals, who made the attack
at the dawn of morning, were led by the
heroic General N. Lyon, who was killed on
the field. The Confederates were commanded
by the famous General Gen. McCulloch, of
Texas., with whom were allied the Missouri
State Guard, under the command of General
Sterling Price, and a force of Arkansas militia
under the command of General N. I). Peaice.
In the persons of the men of bo'h sides who
participated in this battle there has ever since
centered especial interest. And among its
survivors many on both sides subsequently
arose to great distinction and by their genius
and prowess shed brilliant lustre on the uni
forms they respectively wore.
Twenty-two years have passed since
"Bloody Hill" became historic.
Not a few of those who survived the car
nage of that day of glory are now known
among their comrades only where
"On Fame's ctornul capping irroutid
Their silent tents nro spread."
Hundreds yet remain
"Till the shadows little longor prow,"
Recounting anon to the children then unborn
the vivid memories of ils deeds ol heroism.
From these, both Union and Confederate,
have recently sprung, as it were, spontaneous
expressions of a desire to meet each other on
the battle field on its anniversary of this year,
and renew the old friendships of comrade and
comrade, and former fees become acquainted
as friends, and exchange such friendly and
manly courtesies as become brave soldiers
and brethren of a common country.
To this suggestion the citizens of Greene
county promptly responded, and arrangements
have been made to hospitably receive and
care for all who may honor us with their pres
ence on such an occasion. Accordingly a
grand reunion of all the survivors of that battle
has been determined to be held at Springfield
and on the late battle grounds on the 8th, gth
and loth of August, 18S3. All into whose
hands this circular may fall, and their friends,
are most cordially invited to be present.
Appropriate ceremonies and such proceed
ings as both the "blue and the gray" can
heartily join in will occupy the time. Distin
guished soldiers and civilians will be present.
A military camp will be formed for the recep
tion of the veterans of both armies who fought
at Wilson's creek. It is recommended that
each survivor come provided with a blanket.
Springfield, with her now more than 13,000
generous and liberal-minded citizens invites
Come, and in this plain and soldier-like
way, meet your old comrades. Come meet
your former foes, now your friends and fellow-countrymen,
ready to fight for you.
Information of your intention to be present
is respectfully solicited. Particularly so if
you are a survivor of that battle, in order that
we may make provisions for your reception
and entertainment. The postoffice address of
every survivor is especially desired at once.
Half rates on railroads leading to this city

One of These Days.
Curled 111 tho window scat,
Watching tho leaves
Whirling, whilo raindrops bent
Down on tho raves.
Dark scorned this world that day,
Wo two alono,
Changing to if old tho iiray,
Lived in our own.
Dreaming as childhood dreams,
Llfo must bo irond,
Whlspcrliifr of noblo themes
Dreaming all lorn was true,
Smiling ut all we'd do
"One of thei!o days."
Hero In tho window seat
Come you and I,
Whilst with his nolsoloss foot
Tlnin hurries by,
Hero as la childish days
Used we to dream,
Careless of wiser " ays,
Lore wa our theme.
Sometimes I wondered, dear,
How It should last,
lint tho next momont, dear,
Doubts were all past,
Past as you answer mo,
"Loro never strays,
Hnpplcr still we'lfbo
One of these days."
Now bv the window scut
Stand I alone,
Whilst the wind drives tho sleet
Clouds might obscuro tho sun,
Sometimes of old,
It ut while Hope's Kind do run,
Hearts find tho gold.
Lovo. whon tho angel bund
Culled you away,
When In my clasp your hand
Faintly your whisper thou
Answered my gaze,
"Love, wo shnll meet again
Ouu of theso days."

And both In time turn nil to mould.
