GIRLS OF TIIE PERIOD.
FROM THESE ARE TO COME THP
WOMAN OF THE FUTURE.
The Fast Be, the Masculine One. and the
Fashionable ami Learned Clause Un
tleniea h the Utile Eccentricities Are
GondiMM and Brightness.
Just now It in fasbionnble to declare that
the girl o ' the period is tnrical of the wntnnn
of t he f ut ure. What is the tVDieal trirl of the
period? nd what is the period) It is a
eriod of rapid advancement iu every way;
there is bat little time to sit down and think.
or to fold the hands and rest, if on. wniilrl
keep up ith the world. . There Is so much to
see, to do and to hear that repose is not to be
ougnt 1. jno one rusts out; one wears out
KOTO KINl 1 OF THEM.
This, tren, is a fast period, and we have a
"fast girl'' that it has produced. But is she
the proto type of the woman of thefuturel
Not alont , for there are many varieties of
this American girl of the period. For the
period is not only fast, but ij is also complex,
and this complexity produces more than one
type of j;lrL We have the fast girl, and
her oppaite, the domestic girl; there are,
also, the learned girl, the masculine girl and
the fashionable girL
The domestic girl Is brought up carefully
at homo, where all her thoughts are centered.
She sym rxtthizes with her brothers and sis
ters in thr little troubles and takes care of
them when they are ilL She helps in the
housekeeping, superintends the servants,
takes charge of the household mending, and
is perfect iy happy in so doing. Her manner
is quiet a id affectionate, her smile ready and
her disposition cheerful. Hor amusements
are in her home, and for outside excitements
she has 1 or church, her Sunday school and
Dorcas society. But even these do not inter
fere witi her home duties. She is always
reauy in .very emergency to do what is near
est, and ic is to her that the family looks iu
time of trouble. The domestic girl Is sweet
anu Kina. mm is not brilliant, nor beautiful,
perhajs, rut you love her just as much as if
the learned girl is also a product of the
lieriod, and, since the period has produced
her, we ought to be fond of her. We are
fond of lier in a way, but sometimes she
knows ju a a little too much. She wants to
goto college, and after she geta there she
makes the best of her opportunities and
graduates with honors. She is clever, hard
wonting ana ambitious. She la inclined to
look dow i upon girls who know less than she
does, and she rarely indulges in anything so
frivolous as a flirtation. She has views, and
she longs to express them. Frequently these
views art swallowed up in matrimony; but
occasionally they are expressed from the
lecture piaiiorm, or printed in a magazine
aevoiea to showing woman's superiority over
The trasculine girl is sorry that she was
not oorn a boy. But as it is too late to waste
much tiue over that unalterable fact, she
goes to work to be as mannish as possible.
hhe wen -a the most masculine looking hat
that is In kecpipg with the fashion, and tilts
it just a little on one side. She bos her coats
and jack) ts cut like a man's, and frequently
walks wit h her hands in her pockets. If she
carries an umbrella the uses it as if it were
cane, and wishes it were. She affects to dis
like girls and their amusements; she assumes
masculino attitudes, uses slautr and whistles.
But at heart she is a genuine girl, sincere and
amiaoie, ami enjoys what other girls enjoy.
Her assumed masculine airs are amusing, and
we like her for them.
THE FASHIONABLE GIRL.
The fahionablo girl has perhaps been more
seriously considered as the t3"pical girl of the
period, a; id more severely criticised than the
types nu-ntioned above, and yet she is no
worse thun they aro. She occupies the niche
for which she was born, as they do, and fills
it as crtditably. She has been accused of
heartle8S'iess, artificiality and selfishness, be
cause thwe things are inculcated from her
very youth. Then, surely, it is not her fault
She goes from a luncheon to a tea, from that
to a dinner, and afterward to the opera and
a ball The greater part of her life is given
to dress and society. She has little time to
cultivate her mind, for one entertainment
follows another in 6uch rapid succession that
ner men one of constant excitement t
Very often the heart becomes a little hard
ened and the mind dulled to much that is best
and bea itiful in life; but that this is not
always no we have ample proof among the
many nappy Domes of the fashionable girls,
both before and after marriazo.
These .ire all girls of the period, and their
typesmay be found in every city and town
in the United States. They represent differ
ent puass of the American character, and
are each admirable and interesting. Who
can say that one of these types is more repre
sentative of the American girl of the period
than another? If we are going to criticise
mem and say that the fashionable girl is in
clined to be heartless, do we not sometimes
find the domestic girl a little dull and coin
monplacn, despite her many virtues! Does
not the f ist girl occasionally shock our sense
of refinement? Is not the learned girl a little
pedantic and didactic? And do we always
like a gill who tries to be manly t But, after
all, is this not criticising them too severely?
We do not want our girls to be all alike.
It is t ie variety that is bo charming. We
must like them for what they are, not for
what tb 3y are not The grace and taot of
the fash onable girl are, in their way, as ad
mirable us the more sterling qualities of her
domestic sister; the high spirits of the fast
girl are breezy and refreshing for their nat
uralness; the learned girl is to be respected
for her energy and perseverance in her
studies nd for her earnest views of life,
while ttm masculine girl is not uninteresting.
From t hese girls we shall have our women
of the future, and who shall say that the
promise is not good? For underneath the
gay spirits, artificiality, pedantry and affecta
tion of manliness are to be found sincerity.
fearlessness, independence, and the native
tact and brightness that make the American
woman the most charming In the world.

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country
Hear what he says:
I nave been a practical drugffist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time nave bad occasion to examine, try,
and notice the eflect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as -1
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number ot years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
nnd nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part. I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces oi the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
a., wnicn I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing me nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I bad only
eaten six meals, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after UBing three
bottles I was able to relish mv meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, tbank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B
B. B. . cured me in mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully.
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all snfferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
