thnt Yussar collego girls are great on
griddle cakes. Hero is food for thought.
It this eminent institution tenches its
students thc art of making light, nu
tritious, well-browned griddlo cakes,
thc fur-reaching influences of its useful
ness are too stupendous for description
in a newspaper article. Tho lowly
graduate of her Alma Mater may know
algebra by heart, a knowledge of gram
mar may have beconio Bccond nature to
her, geographical locations may bo in
cradicably engraved on her miud's eyo,
and geometrical figures may bo famil
iarly suggested to her thoughts at ev
ery turn alio makes, but how lightly
docs all this weigh iu thc balance with
a fine practical kuowledgo of tho art of
making a perfect griddlo cake? Gen
tle reader, think of it ! Cold blows tho
wiud about freezing tho weathor, as you
sit down to partake of tho matin meal.
Griddlo cakes aro served. Arc
tuuy ueavy, you leci tiiat your
scowl of ill humor is justifiable, Arc
they fair to appearance, but, upon trial,
sad with tho weight of too much flour
or the lack of a sufficient quantity of
"baking powder," you becomo sadder
than they and feel that the hand of fate
pros.-cs heavily upon you. Uut, ah I if
they are warm and golden- brown, and
light and white withiu, what a smile of
good humor irradiates your couutcnanco
as you raiso tho first delicious mouth
ful to your lips and how like a rainbow
it liugers there as you provo the morceau
to be as jrood an it looks ! And as tho
day wears on and tho stomach is not
troubled by any twingos of dyspepsia,
the inorniog griddlo cako becomes a
gentle memory which leaves no sting
behind. No praise, then, is exhaustive
enough for that system of education
which makes the making and the bak
ing of perfect griddle cakes au indis
pensible part of it. The false idea that
a knowledge oi griddlo cakes i.i of no
importance, and that woman should dis
own it and riso above it as a weight
that is dragging her down, H responsi-

but how can this cud be obtained by

BfiSf.Mr. Gladstone, In tho recent

his readiness to untto with a movomont to
restrict tho power of tho Homo of Lords.
The movement likely to roclvo his sup

Upper Houso tho right of veto upon a
Commons bill, and to limit tho power of tho
Peers to tho act of returning for revision
once, or at tho most twice, hills which
should not command thoir approval.
Thu tho IIouso of Lords would bn
rendered poworless to provent any bill

should Insist upon its passago; and tho

of somo such encroachments on tho pre

Tories havo recently engaged In no

tho latter against tho party represented by

Special Correspondence of the Bt'Li.tm.1
New Tobk, Nov. '13.
Most of tho gentlemen who will read
this communication, aro probably familiar
with Wall stfoct In all Its phases ; but
tho ladies certainly aro not, aud so, for
their plcasuro nnd edification, quito as
much as to givo tho brethren an opportu
nity of judging of tho fertility and 6ccnery
along tho lino of tho Northern Pacific
railroad, I proposo to lot my sisters into
tho mysteries of tliU great metropolitan
bear pasturo. Wall street is u queer
plnco; it Isn't spot .wJioro u woninn
would naturally foel very much at homo
at least, I shouldn't suppose she would;
and when tho nows was first wafted to my
cars, a good many months ago, that two
women had plumped thomsolvos down in
Broad street, in closo proximity to tho
stock oxchango, I said: "Just ns good
right thoro as men, if thoy liko it;" but
truth compels mo to stato that I was una-
blo to understand how such a thing could
be. Wall street as a boulevard I novor
onjoyed, although awaro that tho thor
oughfaro is a favorito promonado for
ladies. This always puzzled me. Any
body, of courso, can understand how
womon protty women, conscious women,
liko to frequent a ploco whoro men most
do congregate; but horo thoro Is not ono
chanco in ono hundred of ovor being seen.
Now, don't wink and blink so slyly, and
say to each othor "That accounts for E.
K.'s aversion to tho streot." In Broad
way, ono only is obliged to look out for
animals, when in thc act ot crossing; but
hore, to prevent being run down and run
over, ono must havo oyes all over one's
body; and I cannot sco how n woman,
with au ordinary bump of caution, can
sparo sufficient timo from tho caro of hor
precious nock, for oven a moment's spec
ulation on tho hang of her dress, the lit of
her basque, or tho possible oiled of her
complexion. Such rushing and plunging,
tumbling and roaring, a civilized Imag
ination is poworless to picture Orango
street, of a Sunday, in front of Beechcr's
church, Is no comparison to it. So, when
on Friday I was informod by my superior
offlcor that I must go down to Joy Cooko
& Co.'s offlco, corner Wall and Nassau
streets, and examine soma fruit, all tho
way from tho oast shore of l'ugot Sound,
I decided that said employer not only had
designs upon my comfort, but also upon
my life. A woman in a banker's oflico I
