This paper ii not inclined to agree with
the Duke of Marlborough altogether in his
estimate of the comparative charms of
English and .American women. It thinks
that the benevolent faces, the soft voices,
the gentleness and reverence of English
women and tl eir fine repose are beautiful.
Nowhere have homes been happier than in
England, and it is the Englishwoman who
has made then. She is naturally patient.
self sacrificing, religious ami essentially
maternal. II she bas a serious fault it is
that she has not perceived that her first
duty is to hen-elf. She has lived whatever
life her husband or her sons desired her to.
She is temperamentally submissive. And
in consequence she has too often lost the
admiration of the men for whom she made
these very sacrifices, which have incurred
their contempt.. If a woman wants others
to think well and admiringly of her she
must think will and admiringly of herself.
This is not vanity. It is appreciation.

Mrs. Fowler, of this city, was married
last January to her sixth husband, and
strange as it may seem, five of them died
exactly two years from their marriage
day. Her present husband bas been sick
for the last four months with chronic
jaundice, and was given up by four of our
best physicians; as a last resort be began
using Sulphur Bitters, and yesterday told
our reporter that they bad saved bis life,
