The. Failure to Marry.
The failure of young men to marry has
Compelled hundreds of thousands of yountf
wonttfi to earn an independent living. All
honor to the girls who work, but the
divine plan was that men should be the
bread earners and that women should be
thecenterof homes. Whenever such a fun
damental law of society as this is violated
retribution is inevitable. There are today
npward of 2,000,000 women in the United
States who make a living by professional
and personal services, such as the practice
of law and medicine, the teaching of music
and art work, clerical service of one sort
r another in government and other offices,
quite nparc from the army of youcg women
who serve in stores and toil at mechanical
labor. No one who t an Kick back over a
generation of time L;is failed toobserve t lift
extent to which women have become inde
pendent bread earners within comparative
ly recent years, and particularly in those
avenues winch education and refined
habits of life have opened up. It is in fact
a grave social problem where this thing
It would seem that this, among other
causes, is accomplishing the purpose which
Malthus aimed toteach; forthe inexorable
conclusions of the statistician show that
the American and Canadian familv is
steadily growing smaller. If the average
number per family had been as great in
1800 as in 1800, there would have been r,,
000,000 people in the United States and
430,000 in Canada above what the censuses
revealed. This is a fact of farreaching im
portance, and applies its force in other di
rections than the subject of this article.
Is there a remedy? Certainly there is
none which can be easily and readily ap-
piiea. uwo iiundrea years ago, guided
largely by the Jesuits, the zealous Kincr
Louis of France made stern laws for the
government of this young colony in respect
to marriage. He decreed that every father
having a son eighteen years of age or a
aangbter or nrteen should be held accoun
table to the state if they were not married.

police. Clearly this clew to a conspiracy
ought to be followed up. The person who
had left the paper had already been re
marked for his atisent air and gleaming
eye. That mau was Pcchantre.
The chief of police instructed the land
lord to send for him the next time the con
spirator came to dinner.
When Pechantre was shown the evi
dence of his guilt he forgot the awful
charge against him, and exclaimed:
"Well, I am glad to see that paper. I
lave looked every where for it. It is part
of a tragedy I am writing; it is the climax
of my best scene, where - Nero is to bo

Queen Elizabeth's Amulet.
Queen Elizabeth during her last illness
wore around her neck a charm made of
gold which had been bequeathed her by an
old woman in Wales, who declared that so
long as the queen wore it she would never
pe ill. The amulet, as was generally the
case, proved of no avail, and F.lizabeth,
notwithstanding her faith in the charm,
not only sickened, but died. During the
plague in London people wore amulets to
keep off the dread destroyer. Amulets of
arsenic were worn near the heart. Quills
of quicksilver were hung around the neck,
and also the powder of toads. Detroit

SALT WATER ETIQUETTE.
VDctlliouanesa a Seen Between Ships,
Big; and Little, at Sea.
The Atlantic oce.in is streaked from one
lide to the other with the long, black,
trailing smoke plu tries of the big, rushing
"record breakers' and "ocean grey
hounds," and few ue left of the gallant
old white winged craft that carried the
flag and the fame of the nation to every
part of the world, save some scattering
"oil sleds" which the sailors, or to speak
more correctly, the deckhands on the liners
contemptuously refer to as "wind jam
mers." Here and there, however, will be
Seen an occasional F.ast Indian semiclip
per, either bound o it to China or the East
Indies, loaded wit l case oil, or coming
home with a cargo of hemp, jute, linseed,
rattan or some otht r of the fragrant and
valuable products of the gorgeous east.
But through nil tie changes in the size
and rig of vessels, through all the vicissi
tudes of a life on the ocean wave, the cap
tain of a ship, be it big or little, is, as a
rule, as punctilious in the matter of eti
quette as a Spanish grandee.
Anil the etirjuett of the s-ea is a wonder
ful thing. A hail from a little 73-ton "fore
and after" will be i nswenil with as much
regard for the proprieties by the East India
ship of 2,000 tons i,s it would be by one of
its owu size, and when the big ship has
been run through s orm and fog by "dumb
luck and dead reckoning," the appearance
of the little one is hailed with delight, as
affording a menus of. rectifying possible
errors in reikouin. An instance of this
kiud occurred o;I Cape Cod a short time
ago, when the caj tain of. a ship with a
valuable cargo ami a cr... of twenty-five
men, as the fog li "ted about noon of the
seventh consecutive day without an ob
servation, saw Almost under his bows a
little "cord wood c aster" creeping along
under mainsail and jib, with her skipper
at the wheel and her crew (one man) vigor
ously hauling away at the jib sheet.
"Ship ahoy!" roaied the skipper.
Back from the det k way above him came
the answering call, "Ahoy there."
"Where ye from?'" was the next question.
"Calcutta, hound for Boston," was the
"What's yer cargo?"
"Linseed, spice atd jute butts."
"How long ye bin out?"
"One hundred and sixty days."
"Gosh!" said the skipper, and then came
the chance cf the big ship's captain.
"Schooner ahoy!' came down from the
deck of the "lime juicer."
"Ahoy there," went. back the answer.
"What's your longitude?"
The skipper knew where be was and the
master of the Calcutta ship was uncertain.
So when the answer was given he was
much relieved, for t showed that he was
nearer home than he bad reckoned. But
he was going to have his talk out anyway,
and although the little fellow had his jib
to windward lie roaied out:
"Where you from "
"Gloucester, bound for Xew Bedford."
"What's your caro?"
"Rocks and bilge water mostly."
"How long you Ik en out?"
The skinner was sains by the sarcasm of
the question, and v ith a look of scorn at
the big ship bellowed out: "Bin out all
night, by thunder, and I wish I hadn't.
Draw away your jib!" and the sheet block
went over to the le.; rail with a bang, the
sail filled, and the ht the Indiaman heard
of the schooner wa-i the skipper's shout
from the stern of his boat, "Ye think ye're
darn smart, don't y , jest cause ye're big!"

Suwuroff, Russia's great military com
mander, was a little man, insignificant in
everything but that intangible power of
mind and character with which physical
strength is never to be compared. He had
bee:; sickly in his yo ith, but became hardy
under the stimulus of cold bathing and
the benefits of a plain diet. Buckets cf
cold water were thrjwn over him in the
morning, and his table was served with
fare which guests would fain have refused,
but dared not, lest lie should think them
effeminate. He despised dress, and de
lighted in drilling h.s men in shirt sleeves,
sometimes with hi stockings literally
"down at the heel."
But his hardihood of life and action had
its effect on the men "he commanded. He
was often up and about by midnight and

A document found among the Duke cf
Rutland's papers at Belvoir castle throws
a curious light upon the mode of getting
private bills through the house of commons
in the days of King Charles II. The case
in hand was the divorce bill of John, lo-d
de Roos, an affair thiit caused a great deal
of gossip in its day. One of ins lordship's
agents wrote in January, 1067: "On Wed
nesday last I got six .nd forty of the house
of commons to the Dug Tavern, in the
palace yard nt. Westminster, when were
present Mr. Attorney lieneral and Mr.
George Montagu. As soon ns thev had
dined we carried thei 1 all to the house of
commons, and they passed the bill, as the
committee, without miy amendments, and
ordered it to be repotted the next day."
