American Women Do Not Smoke, but
Sonw of Them Tipple on tho Qalet A
rinnnt Tarty Without Any Talking.
Tlio Trials of Hoarding; This and That.
I bare, for Instance, heard of a cultivated
and excellent woman who actually went
abroad because she eit'jcr could not or would
not indulge in the costly tnodae of entertaining
adopted by tome other social leader of the
tame city. Kow this is, to say the leant, a
very narrow and perverted view to tako of
the true province of cnU rtainmenta
In what dons the brilliuncy of an entertain
ment consist I Awiuredly not in the flnsh of
electric or gas lilit, niinL-liny with the softer
ran cf waxen cnndlr! nnd modulated illumi
nation, in t.'rropin and chnmpapie, in im
rnmwi suit of elaborately decornted apart
ments, or in the sheen of witin and sparkle of
di'imomls. Doos our intellectual civilization
cull t)U bri'.linncrf Ood forbid! These
things are nicro accessories, effect producod
by a respectable army of workiupmen and
women who have united their labor to pro
duce this result and are thankful that by so
doing they have goinod au honest livelihood.
If tho effect is not gluring and is devoid of
a seeming display, theu it is to the credit and
the good tasto of the porson who bad made
the outlay, but for all this, the entertainer
and the entertained may be I do not say
they are, but I do say that they may very
readily be very commonplace if not abso
lutely unrefined people. The making of
mouoy is not oao of the flue arte, aud the
people who have th? knack of making it most

a deal of polishing before they know how to
shino aa brilliants of the first wator.
While on the other hand the vnst body of
our rospectnblo families, who have beeu sat
isllcd with moderate means, hava lived in an
atuiufphcro of true refinement. We have
only to collect our senses nnd turn aside from
mere glitter as meretricious, and disassociate
the idea of money spending from our social
lifo. to regain the old standards.
Now, the first cardinal rule as to the real
elegance of an entertaiumeut must be that it
is the solection of the guests, the character of
the people who assemble, which will go to
main it brilliant or the reverse. One may
waste a fortune In giving a dinner, as the
(aans have done before us, aud it will be
but a vulgar affair at .beat U the guests are
nt tho chief attraction. Happily, itiscou
versntion. and not simply what ono eats or
drinks, or has to offer, or display, that makes
a dinner a bun.-piat tit for thu go-Is.

will only bo steadfast and "fight it out on
this liue" and combine their force, und let it

wui not tolerate mere display, than the own

and manners as social loaders, because they
are millionaires, will soon be inado to under

Do American Women Smoke?
Somobody a ike J tho other day, "Is cigar
ette smoiuug on the increase among women f"
Most empuaticuliy it is not. American
women I tuoan the wU bred ones do not
and novor have smoked cigarettes; occasion
ally, to be l irl:y and among very intimate
mentis, a young woman has taken up a cigar
ette, smoked it perhaps for a few minutes.
perhaps for longer, that h might have the
extrorao felicity of making indignaut some
man woo especially admired her. lio verv
sure if American women wanted to smoke
they would, but they have sense enough to
snow, as tney loo it at some of tho callow
youths, that cigarette smoking would only
make their complexions pole, their eyes lus
terlcss, and take all the life and chic out of
them. No matter how much romance may
surround the Spanish or Cuban women when
smoking, it will never be transplanted to an
English speukinjr country, and only the
aroma of fostneca will hover about the wo
man who think it's fetching to Indulge in
such a petty vice. Old women have smoked
ripes, and certainly that's not a protty sight,
believe Mrs. Carlyle did this, but one can
scarcely blame her, for a woman married to
Thomas Carlyle hud a right to Cad solace in
anything and it would bo forgiven her.
There is no such thing in this country as Bo
hemia the fact that everybody lives before
the public mokes it impossible; but every
now and then one hears of a dinner party or
an at home given among the peoplu who
choose to call themselves the Bohemian set,
and it wUl bo announced that tho ladies
smokal cigarettes wttu the easo of Russian
women. One often wonders in reading this
if they realize that the Russian woman is
noted tho wide world over for tho need that
her bonds have for scap; so that when they
talk about the ease they might as well com
bine with it the dirt, for the two go together.
Hoarding and Boarders.
It cannot bo aied of thoso who take people
to board In order to moko their own living
that they shall czerciso any power of selec
tion among those who apply to thorn, except
so far as their suelal respectability and finan
cial solvency are secure ; nor can the ordinary
boarder alwr.ys con Hue herself to her cham
ber in order to evoid others of tho Incongru
ous family whom she does not approve or
like. In thu, e3 in most other things, the
burden of hit falls more heavily on women
than on men; for a man b absent all day at
bis business, and the evening offers to him a
thousand &muemeuW whicu ere never open
to single womou, nor to the married unless
t'ueir busbaudj choose to indulge them in such
Another argument in favor of boarding is '
that it allor.a women more leisure aud re
lieves thr.a from tho car of housekeeping.
But U leikurc the let thing for women I Eow
do they employ it lu imoh a Ufa? I know there
are many aud Uouorublo exceptions, but the
average woiiuji of the period lias nothing to

Defending a School Tracker.
Cobdovia, Illinois, February 11.
Granting ' me ; the opportunity, I will
endeavor to correct a few mistaken ideas
the people of Enterprise school district
and vicinity have concerning tbe late
teacher, Mr. R. G. Simpson, and also a
misrepresentation of the school and pro
ceedings which we observed in the
columns of your paper, not long since.
One of your correspondents informs us
that tbe said teacher was unable to pre
serve order in the school, and that there
was considerable fault finding by the pa
rents and children with him as teacher.
This assertion we believe to have been
made without foundation. If the chil
dren did find fault with him, as teaci.er,
we understand it was due, principally, to
his turning them back somewhat in their
studies and not allowing them to rush
through their books hurriedly without
understanding the contents. Mr. Simp
son believes in being thorough in his
work, and places the amount of knowl
edge obtained by scholars on tbe quality
imparted to them, which priuciuie we
honor him for as a teacher.
We are informed bv members of the
district that, if the parents did find fault
with him, it was those who failed to in
vestigate school matters, but merelv list
ened to tbe reports of others, or their
children, who are not always capable of
deciding what is best for them. We find
this class to be the kind that
generally find the most fault
with a school or teacher. We should
not form our opinion too hastily, but in
vestigate for ourselves, be convinced of
the truth, and then decide for the right
We think if this plan was carried out a
little more thoroughly by the patrons of
a school district,and they would give their
cooperation a little more with the teach
er's efforts, that better results would be
accomplished in our schools. We are
also Informed that those of the board of
directors who did visit the school and
investigate matters, reported the school
running in good condition and Mr. Simp
son's methods of teaching good.
Your correspondent also informs us
that he refused to teach same of the
studies which be had agreed to. We un
derstand that there was no particular
studies acreed upou to teach; hence we
would call the attention to some of tbe
studies be did teach which are not re
quired in a district school; among tbe
numiHT is algebra, physiology, clval gov
ernment and elocution. If there are any
studies which be refused to teach, we be
lieve It was because he thought it for the
best interest of the school that they were
not liken up. One reason and a very
important reasonwhich would be, want
of lime, as the district school teacher can
only devote about one-half the time te a
recitation that tbe teacher in a graded
Bcuoni can, mere oeing aoout twice as
many recitations in the district school ;
hence all additional studies thai are taken
in is depriving the remainder of the
school of that much time. ,
Another reason as is remarked "don't
cross the bridge until you get to it,"
scholars should be prepared to take up
tbe higher studies before they neglect the
common branches for this purpose. The
worthy correspondent also informs us
that Mr. S. acknowledged bis inability to
tench the school. We understand that
his being incapable of teaching tbe school
was not mentioned. We would advise
your correspondent to investigate more
thoroughly in the future before be as

AARCM BURR'S GRIEF.
Deep Sorrow of the Man, Mlio Was Be
lieved to Be Wholly Bad.
There are sune who suppose that CoL
Burr bad no virtues. This is a mistake. He
was true in his friendships, and would go
any length to srve a friend, and he had also
the strongest af 'ections. I shall never forget
the incidents concerning the loss of his
daughter Theo-losia, then wife of Governor
Alston, of South Carolina. Soon after Col.
Burr's return from Europe to New York, he
arranged for hr to come on and visit hn,
and she set out. as is known, from George
town, in a small schooner called the Patriot
Timothy Greer, a retired lawyer in New
York, a most worthy man, and an old friend
of CoL Burr, went on by land to accompany
her. The fact f the departure of the vessel
with his daughter and Mr. Green onboard
was communicated by letter from Govornor
Alston to CoL Uurr, and be looked forward
with anticipations of joy to the meeting
which after so many years of separation was
to take place between himself and his dear
child. A full U ne for the arrival of the ves
sel at New York transpired, but she did uot
As day after c ay passed, and still nothing
was seen or heard of the vessel or of bis
daughter, that f ice which had before shown
no gloom or sadness began to exhibit the sign
of deep and dejper concern. Every means
were resorted to to obtain information, but
no tidings wore over heard of the vessel or of
her upon whom nil the affections of his na
ture had been bestowed. ''Hope deferred"
did in this cose, indeed, make sick and nearly
crush the heart. . His symbol, which he loved
occasionally to st imp upon the seal of a letter,
was a rock in tho tempest tossed ocean, which
neither w'ind nor wave could move. But his
firm and manly nature, which no danger or
reverse, noranyif the previous circumstances
of life had bow tide to shake, was near giving
way. It was in resting, though painful, to
witness his struggle, but he did ri.- superior

YCistf Tired Feeling
That extreme tired feeling which is so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable In the
spring months, is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of Hood's Sarsaparilla with any other blood
purifier in the market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"l had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. I bad tried several
kinds of medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I bad taken halt a bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."

spring medicine, for two reasons : . -
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medieine than at any other season.
2d, The impurities which have accumulated
in the blood should be expelled, and the sys

is the best medicine she ever took." F. C.
