There waa a time whet It was thought that
A married woman who . orked for monuy in
DftM way rvflected discredit upon her hus
band, by an implication if his iaek of ability
to support her as she m bihed to live. That
period is part, both bap ily and unhappily.
Happily, because many i. man has had cause
to bleaa the slender hand of the wife, which,

But the chance of p blio opinion on the
core of home living v omen workimr for
aoney has been unfortunate, because, in the
KTHfrgie tor runoa with rbicb to indulge a
taste for drem, or for otl er luxuries not war

The wife of a small far-ner was heard not
long ago recounting complacently the success
she bad hail in laying ai le a neat little sum

"We had a good deal of spare time eren

thought it was a real -ilia me we shouldn't

work. There were five gusset and nine but

of us pretty near all day working steady all

an interested listener.
"Oh, well, it wasn't much," admitted the
other; "only thirty-five cents a dozeu for the
hirta, and a dollar sevet ty five a dozen for
the pants. It did seem ruber little to me at
first, but I says to the cirls, 'If we weren't
doing this, we wouldn't I e doing anything to
earn money.' And by k eping at it all win
ter we'd made forty do lars by spring, be

eight better than nothing "
"I should say so!" ejacidated the auditor.
"I declare to goodness 1 helieve I'll try' that
rnrae plan myself next tenter. I only wih
I'd thought of it before. "
To neither speaker di 1 the idea eeem to
suggest itself that in the city there were
(truggling women to wh m that forty dollars
would have meant thrice the sum that it did
to the well clad, well fed wife and daughters
who gave only their leisu -o moments to shop
work. The degraded ord ;r of humanity pos
anmed by the proprietors .f "sweating" estab
lishments is of a sort that makes them ready
to take advantage of their ability to have the
work done at the lowest jowible terms. Ev
erything that by causing the supply to exceed
the demand has a tendeiH y to reduce wages
hailed with Joy by the human sharks.
Still it seems rather hard to veto the earn
ing of all wages by a wo nan simply becauwr
ibe baa a husbaud or a fa her. The gifts, tiie
eharity that the gaina from her labors enable
her to bestow, grant her iloul.le the gratifica
tion she would derive frt m anything tiotiglit
with money that had bten given her. But
let her seek some other outlet for her indus
try. That is an exceptio uU woman who has
not some specialty, be it n ver so humble. To
this let her turn as a mans for earning her
ntra funds. Sometimes she may possess an
accomplishment, oftener a knack at some
branch of handiwork out of the common line
of labor, the practice of t.'bich takus employ
ment from nobody.
One deft little woman, who had no income
except the slender allows ice that was all her
husband could afford bet , used to make the
money for bis Christmas and birthday gifts
by crocheting silk shawls in a peculiar
ttitch of which she aloiie held the secret.
Another earned all her d luations to charita
ble enterprises by puttiu f up pickled man
goes, by an old, family recipe, for friends
who could not obtain ttiesa dniuties else
where and were glad to py her liberally f.ir
her trouble. Hull another, a young girl, as
umed the concoction of bouillon for cer
tain caterer, achieving n preparation that
became famous in the bctle city where she
lived. Home made Frenci aaodMa and Ud
almoaule became the Industry of another.
Such avocation as these impoverish no one,
and their practice enabks a woman to feel
that independence dear io all who are not

To Get IMd of OatkTeaekea.
A correspondent writes la follows: I beg to
forward you an easy, clean and certain
method of eradicating t wee loathsome in
jcts from dwelling house). A few years ago
my honss was infested w tb cockroaches (or
'clocks," as they are calli d here), aud I was
recommended to try cuct mber peeling as
remedy. I accordingly, mmediately before
bedtime, strewed the floo- of those parts of
the house mast infested w th the vermin with
the) green peel, rut not ' ery thin, from the
cucumber, and sat up hall an hour later than
usual to watch the effect.
Before the expiration of that time the floor
where the peel lay was completely covered
with cockroaches, so mnc l so that the vege
table could not be seen, no voraciously were
they engaged in sucking the poisonous moist
ure from it. I adopted the same plan the
following night, but my visitors were not
arly so numerous, I ahi uld think not more
than a fourth of the previous night.
On the third night I did not discover one.
but, anxious to ascertain whether the bouse
was quite clear of them, I examined the peel
after I had laid it down alwut half an hour,
and perceived that it was sovered with myri
ads of minute cockroach , about the aize of a
Sea, I therefore allowed the peel to remain
till morning, and from t tat moment 1 have
not seen a cockroach in the house. It is a
very old building, and I can aau-e you that
the above remedy only requires to be per
aBvered in for three or four nights to com
pletely eradicate the peat. Of course it should
be fresh cucumber peel every night. Con
An Englishman's first idea is to ask his
friend to dinner, his neit to make the ac
quaintance of his wife anil daughters. With
a Hindoo yon can do none of these things. It
Is often better not even to refer to them. A
Mohammedan will dine with you, but his
ladies, with few except!' is, are even more
lealously secluded than t lose of the Hindoo,
ftor do the women for the most part seem to
desire more liberty. Mitny of them know
ery well bow to manage their husbands, and
if they want to go anyw here or to see any
thing the men have to find some means of
gratifying them. The reverence paid to mo-
then is extreme.
I know a man in high f osition and of mid

fant marriages and child widows. The
women must desire change before it is made.
A philanthropic maiden lady who had passed
her first youth was conversing not long ago
with a married Indian lady and her widowed
sister-in-law on these topics. After she had
left them the married lady said, "I married
at 7 and my husband was 9 years old. We
have lived happily together. How is it that
this lady has not married till her hair is

There ought to le a law in England that no
one shall remain unmarried after a certain
age." The loyal comment of the sister-in-law
on the attack made upon her was simply,

The Nineteenth Century.
Ks plaining Klplanatlona.
I lately saw a complaint by a writer that
the next generation, when they read the
rooking tiooks their mothers use I that is, of
course, the cooking books of today may
well think those mothers were lacking in
common seuse, so little is left to their intelli
gence, matters that seem self evident are so
I am aware that the writer of the above
roinplaint gives expression to the feeling of
many. I know one old lady, long superan
iiated from the kitchen, but who was in
oer time an excellent cake and preserve
maker and w ho still criticises all the new
looking books with some such comments as
"Hum, 'Take a clean cloth;' who would
take a dirty one, I'd like to know! 'Remove
the cake from the oven without shaking.'
For pity's sake, who in their senses would
(hake a cake coming out of the oven Tend
To this good lady's experience such trifling
matters soem introduced to swell the bulk of
the book. She forgets that cookery books
are all that many young w ives have to de
pend on for knowledge, that if the cake
should he a trifle hot through the cloth and
their unaccustomed fingers sensitive, they
will, ns likely as not, run to the table with
the cake and drop it hastily and heavily on
it, glad to get it out of hand, and unless an
experienced friend is near to explain they
will fail to connect the rapid sinking of the
cake that seemed such a success a moment
ago with the jar it has reoeiveo". So in this
case It is not only necessary to warn "not to
shake t he cake," but why she should not do
so. The writers who are painstaking enough
to "explain the explanations" are far fewer
than those who merely compile cooking books,
and their recipes naturally longer and more
tedious to read, to those who only need to get
the proportions and materials from a recipe.

Keeping Meats Id Summer.
A steak which has been cut and cannot be
used till the next day may be kept from be
coming dry on the surface by rubbing it with
olive oil and laying it on a platter on the ice.
Turn the meat occasionally. Another method
of keeping meat is to rub the surface with
vinegar. Both these processes Improve the
meat, rendering it tender. Meat which bas
become but very slightly tainted may lie re
stored by washing it with a enp of water, in
which a teasooiiful of borax has been dis
solved, and cutting away the discolored parts.
Meat that has liegun really to spoil is not fit
for human food, however, and should be
burned up or buried, rather than doctored
up to conceal it-s condition. It is no longer
(it for nourishment, but a rank poison, dan
gerous to touch as food. Put a piece of char
coal inside of poultry when laying them away
on ice or hanging them. Meat cut from bow
ever good animate is never as good In summer
as winter, because the meat must lie hung in
clin few houses in summer, while in winter it
hangs in the fresh open air. Butchers who
understand their business prefer to hang their
beef iu a plai-e where the open air can strike
tt on all suli for at least four weeks, and
often as long as six weeks, before they offer
it to their customers for sale. New York

I "arty Calls.
There are certain email things all girls
ought to know about little forms of etiquette,
the observance of which is expected among
all well bred people. Some understand by
instinct, or inheritance, or by observation,
but others appear to need a hint. A lady
once told me that she was much chagrined at
having been guilty of not making "party
coils" lu a city where she had spent part of a
winter and bad been invited to several houses.
Bhe was refined and cultivated, but had never
been much in society In lurge towns, and
actually did not know what was expected ot
her untu it was too late. She said that just
before returning to her borne she beard a lady
in the bouse where she was boarding auk
another, "Have you mode your party calls i"
The matter was a puzzle to her.
At the first opportunity she asked a friend
to whom she was not afraid to betray her
Ignorance the n leaning of the expression, and
found that by the etiquette of society it was
the polite and proper thing for her to make a
call at each of the houses where she had been
invited. Imagine her chagrin on being told
what a "party call" wast She did not wish
to be considered crude or rode, but as crude
or rude those hostesses must regard her. In
agues cases, like hers, it is ignorance and
In eQssn it is negligence; but the hdy wbo
has invited you will be likely to set persons
down as under bred or ill bred who fail of
this small courtesy. A good many instances
have come to my knowledge since then of
young girls who have lieen honored by invi
tations to a choice garden or indoor party,
and never afterward took the trouble to call.
I have known even a more discreditable
thing it is incredible, but true, that young
people have actually left such a party with
