One of the cleverest crirls I can ever hnr
to know told me once the history of a day
of small things aud its tragic ending.
Everything "went wrong" with her that
day, as the phrase Roes; her most depended
on story came back "declined with thanks;"
her overshoe sprang a leak and soaked the
rhenmatic ankle; her dressmaker's bill was
discovered, by ingenious furnishing of "ex
tras," to have well nigh doubled itself; the
dainty bit of Dresden china which was a
pnilopoDna present from "him," caught in
her shawl fringe and was swept to the floor
and broken to bits; and so on down the
But she tried that dav a new bit of phi
losophy, "to small evils, small remedies,"
.o said to herself; and through all the
annoyances of the day she sustained her
soul with the vision of the especially de-
lectaoie mumns which, it being a "com
pany tea" that night, would adorn the
family board. She came in to the dining
room, wet and weary, her strained aud ir
ritated nerves in their final gasp of pro
test and revolt. The 'maid passed to her
a plate of thin sliced cold bread. "Why,
mother!" she cried impulsively, "where
are the mufCns?" "My dear," said the
gentle mother, "I am so sorry, but Mary
Ann left them in the oven just a moment
too long, and"
1 hat was the last straw. With a bitter
and heartbroken wail of "Xo muffins
after all!" the overstrained nerves cave
way, ami she rushed from the table, crying
as though her heart would break. Boston

The Glory of a Woman.
'The glory of a woman is her hair," we
are told; but that depends ia some meas
ure upon the way in which she wears it.
If, as is the custom of some women, she
brushes it backward from her forehead.
and then, after stretching the fibers to the
tension of fiddle trings at concert pitch.
belays the tightened mass behind her ears,
we must say that the appearance her head
presents is anything but glorious. By
what technical name this frightful ar
rangement is known we do not know, but
it might appropriately enough be called
the cemetery stvle.
The "horrid hair" of a comet is alwavs
drawn back at a ris;ht angle from its facial
line by reason of the speed at which it
travels; but why any female star of fashion
should emulate that erratic specimen of
last lite in the upper circles in this par
ticular is beyond our ken. The only
wonder is that the hair, under the tremen
dous pull necessary to impart the requisite
tension, does not give way at the roots like
the tail of Tarn o' Shanter's mare in the
fierce grasp of Cutty Sark.
Seriously, ladies, this high Dressure
method of dressing your "glory" is,, in
every sense of the word, a serious draw
back to your comeliness. Possibly you may
thiuk that it prevents your fair brows from
wrinkling, but the reverse is the fact. The
skin of the forehead is unnaturally
stretched in the process, and when the
pressure is removed it is apt to become
corrugated. If you wish to attract ad
miration and not ridicule don't dress
your hair in that manner. Ledger.

Dress of American Women.
In Mrs. Kemble's "Further Recollec
tions" she takes American women severely
to task for their extravagance. "I have
nowhere," she writes, '"seen extravagance
to compare with that of American women,
especially in dress. I knew one woman I
was going to say lady, but I retract that
who, wearing during the summer xqui-
site linen dresses made for the American
market, light and cool for the heat, never
bad one washed, but as soon as it had lost
its first crisp freshness threw it away. An
other lady of the same stamp paid fifteen
dollars for the ironing of a flowered dress
that was rather tumbled!"
The latter performance can scarcely be
called extravagance ou the part of the
owner ef the dress. She was either the
victim of the extortion of the renovator or
the work was actually worth it and its
doing a boon to some poor ierson. Con
cerning the second count in the indictment.
that was extravagant and unusuaL It
is hardlv fair to visit the sin of an indi
vidual upon an entire class. American
girls with money are liberal spenders un
doubtedly, and as they possess to an ex
ceptional degree the desire of all women
for fresh, dainty things they need to lie.
This writer, though, has nothing to say
for the American women with very little
money, who, by their skilL, economy and
management contrive to "have things
and "go to places" on such limited sti
pends. With an income that an English
girl would dub poverty, exile and seclu
sion her American sister lives in good style
and finds a pleasure m existence. Her
