Hutmill Origin of Morality.
It would ni near, from the codes ol'
people, for whom no divine revelation
is claimed by us, that mau by his un
aided elVorts has come lo the knowl
edge of the best principles and prac
tices of morality, has not only made
admirable rules of conduct, but luis
perceived thut tho es?onc?of goodness
lies in the character of tho soul. Li
this he. so, it is unnecessary to suppose
a supernal ural divine revelation lone
count fortho ethical phenomena ol'so
ciety, lt might he. said, indeed, thal
all this ethical development proceeds
from a primitivo divino revelation.
But this stat onion I rests on no histori
cal proof, nor would it ox plain tho
fact that tho ethical progress of a un
thill goes hand in hand with its
growth in civilization. If the ancient
Hebrews received their et hical cod? di
rectly from God, whence comas itthut
manners were milder in Ezra's limo
than in the pro-ox i lin ll prophetic pe
riod, less mild in the days of Divid,
and eon ipa int i vol y rude in the period
of thu judges? It would Ix: singular if
the generations which stood nearest
tho revolution were least ulVcelod hy

old traveler and diner out, declared
unhesitatingly that thc napkin should
bo tucked henealh tho chin so ns to
protect the scarf of tho guest as well
as his clothing, lie knew it would be
asserted that such a thing is vulgar,
but in any event there should be as
much caro taken of the shirt front, and

Soino people hohl that tho proper plaee
for a napkin is In tho guest's lap;
others that it should ho tucked between

Ti? ono ut nil familial' with tho cos

with tho mode? of using- thom, some
interest attaches to those employed by
Jupanoso Indita. Thc moat Striking
feature lo ? foreigner in this* direction
is to see tho tooth of the women bluclc.
Japanese fashion commands thut every
woman when married, or who luis
Paused tho ago iii which she is likely to
he married, stain her teeth black.
This ls done with much troubl? ami
with repented renewals. Tho "kit" of
utensils is mudo of brass and' consists
of a bowl of peculiar form, which will
hold uhout half a gallon of wntcr.
Acioss this rests a shelf of decorated
brass 3 inches wide hy V? inches long.
On this stands a small kettle, in which
thc staining liquid is kept hot, and a
small cup into which to nour some of
Itu; staining liquid io coot it, aud from
which it is used on tho teeth. A hex
of laequored wood contains powdered
nutgalJs and a small feather brush,
and tho whole set, when not in use, is
kept in a hi raje lacquered box.
Tho niateiiuls coivslst of a solution
of iron nails in a vinegar made of sour
nuke, forming what would be known
ehotuicalI y ns? nco tu teof iron. This so
lution is vigorously brushed o vor the
teeth, followed by a rubbing of them
with powdered nutgnlls. This forms
lilack tem?ale of iron on tho teeth, in
fact, it is our common black writing
ink. Tho process renewed weekly
hoops the teeth of shiny blackness
comparable almost to frostily blacked
shoes. The fashion is said to huvo
originated centuries ago unions nobil
ity, and lyniee prevails with all other
classes. To me the practice is simply
The children and youth of both
sexes have ol't%n beautiful, regular
while tooth, and tho contrast of these I
with their soft, brown skins, black
I oyes niid hair, tho blood showing ii'ud
j dy through the brown skin ol tho
! checks, makes great beauly in tho
j young Japanese a coming thing. Jap
anese women fade early, and to add lo
the ravages of lime such a practice is
sickening. Among the lower classes
there is u tendency in the teeth to pro
ject forward, and this results in tho
habit of keeping the mouth open. Tho
reader can laney tho picture.
1 uni glad to know Unit young Japan
does not favor this custom, and that
the married women of today among
the better classes have abandoned it.
Fainting tho lips seems lo bc uni
versal with women of all classes and
ages. Little girls not i> years old have
their lips a bright red. The material |
used for this is tho coloring matter of
salllowcr, called technically eartha
mino,0 This plant (curlhumus thicjj)

Europe, and used as a dyo. It is fa
miliar lo UK in America tor tho sumo
purpose, but not grown to any great
extent. In the drug stores it is known
as American sulVron.
The color when diluted is a rosy
pink? when very deep it has tho me
tallic bronze, green of a beetle's wing,
ami it is quilo common for Japanese
women lo apply the color so thickly
thal tlio lips show a bronzy green in
stead of a cherry red. While both lips
are tinted, thc most of the coloris put
on t,ic* center of the louer lip, whero
tho "rout" is. This color is sold in tho
cosmetic shops (kaniainono-yd) as
beni and is generally in the ?orin of
little shallow saucers of white earth
enware, on tho inside of which tho
color has been spread with tho brush
to show a deon red with a bronzy green
reflection. These cost about two sen
(one and one-half cents)
White cosmetic consists of finely
levigated chalky material, scented and

Inspector Williams, of tho Now York

of uh incident that occurred lust sum

Soing np.jtbero ono afternoon, and nt ,
lew York, by mistuko, got aboard tho t
express instead - of, the local traill that
stops at Cos'Cob-. Tho express does
not stop, until it reaches Stamford, .
which is'some distance beyond t)fk in

not know tho conductor and could
think of no way to get safely off from

forty miles an hour, so ho mudo usc of

which ho always carries with linn
when he travels, and he settled down
in ?his scat iill?ndiuu to take a much
needed rest; but tho fates were against
his getting tho hilo of sleep that his
system craved. An inquisitive coun
tryman, who knew lit'.lc of railroad
traveling, dropped into tho scat beside
hii?i, and asked him questions about
tho clangor of running ol? the track,
what ho reckoned the speed was,
whether ho had ovor scon a cow "mus
sed up by tho engine." Williams gavo
the mun monosyllabic and fretful an
swers, but Mr Hayseed kept on talk
ing, "forgot lo bring u lunch," ho
saul, ''novcr needed a snack as bad.
Wisher had a chunk ?^f pic, or even a
hum sandwich. 'Sposo no chance lo
gel it on this train ?"
As tho old fellow said tl i is Williams
was gazing out ol' the window at his
beloved Cos Cob, which the train was
rapidly approaching, and which ho
know they won\jX sw'oop past in about

His massive, sixty-two ounce bruin
bumped against tho roof his skull and
an iden was born.
"Mister," ho said, turning to tho
countryman, "I think yon said you
wanted something lo eat. I can tell
you how you eau get n good square
chicken sandwich. Step right up to
tho middle, of tho car and pull that
clothes line near tho roof-yank it
hard a couple ol' times-and tho train

Tho old fellow started for tho boll

platform. Ho said tho train stopped
with such an extemporaneous jerk that
he was (ired head Ih'St into a pile of

Thc experience of the lire marshal

quite amusing. Tho Boston Courier
says that their first refuge when hoing

it by telling tho following story:
(Dud man brought his wifo to tho
ofllco in answer to thc summons of tho
marshal, but assured the oflicor that
shocould liol speak English, nor yet
Polish nor Hebrew.
Being forced to own that sho did
speak something, she admitted with
reluctance that sho know a little Ger
man, and in this tonguo tho marshal
began his examination. Presently,
when the woman was oil' her guard,
ho had recourse to un old and simple
but effective ruse.
"Is that a mouse under your chair?"
he nuked, .suddenly.
Tho woman jumped from her seat
with a shriek, proving that sho was
still a woman where mico wero con
'.'Tlionyou do understand English?"
tho marshal said, blandly.
