Nine-tenths of the women of the world are
afflictedwith some of the con.pilaits tatmi
larly known as "Female listasea," or "W on:b

an idolized daughter, a cheri-hed sister, or a
dearly loved mother who suffer, agones that
are endured in silence to protect her mccd'sty
Proper treatment is postponed from month to
month by dread of a ph:;sicians' humi.ia;ing
eratination, or surgeon's knife. Most 01
these dangerous diset-es can be succe-fullY
.reated at home, but there is wi:le- pread ig
norance among even the most i:teillizent
classes of women regarding their naitur.t
functions and or'ans of generation. owing to
so little Information having been publishett :n
regard to this subject and a modesty that
shrinks from investgation such a disagreea

an existence possessed of many
enarms, and vet I believe there is no
e se on record of a man or woman
who, having once served his or her ap
prlesipll to the trade, has ever re
turne.? to a civilized life again.
Jn the Queenland Bush carrying
trade, von must understand, there are
three main arteries, the townships of
Hu henden. Longreach and Charle
ville, and from each of these places
there flows continually a stream of
enormous table-topped wagons, bound
for stations in the Great West, ali
more or less remote from what is
,enrai.y supposed to make life worth
Te existence of the carrier is rough
to a terrib!c degree, and must in no
way be confounded with that of the
respectable, jog-trot class who ply
their trade in English rural districts.
Small wonder that the women grow to
be hard and rough, consorting, as they
do, with none but the sternest of the
opposite sex, and daily dloing work
that would test the patience and en
durance of the strongest man. These
are some of the folk who in reality do
the bilding up of our colonies, al
though the credit goes to another
noisier, uglier and far less useful class.
U ut to get back to my story.
As I have said at the bcginning, she
was iali, angular and peculiarly plain,
and, in spite of the glaring incongruity
of it, it must bc recorded that her
Ibaptismal name was Daphne. Her
husband was a carrier on the Hid
geLrse-Kalaba trach, and she was at
once the brain and the mainstay of his
IMy 1irst acquaintance with them
occurred ou the edge o f a Boree scrub,
a dismal place, and more than a han
dred ies removed from either of the
above townships. They were eamnped
bieside abig water hole, and on dis
mounting froma my horse I was intro
dneed by the carrier, with becomlig
ceremony, to his wife. Great were
the proofs of friendship they showe,d
to me, and long will I cherish the
memory of that rough but hearty hos
pitality. Next morning I went my
way, thev theirs, and it was not for
nearly a year that we met again.
Wueu next I hearda of them, Daphne
was in the township hospital, recover

ba fall from the wagon; and her
husband, an enormously built man,

uuskilledm in sneh matter. might easily
have been rmistanken for insolence, had
thast very day returned with loading
from the west. By inquiring after his

touched the right string; for his eyes
lit up, his voice softened and he an

A crowd of nearly a thousand people
wthed a man drown in Los Angeles
to ay and was powerless to help him.
Ri aewas Thomas Reynclds, and
ne wvas a laborer for a sewer building
on Los Angeles street. near Boyd.
Th scene was the most agonizing that
can he imagined.
At about .9 o'clock Reynolds was
working in a new sewer that is build
ing directly underneath an old brick
one. The grouind is roft there and
Reynolds was caught by a small cave
i. His legs were pi nioned by the
falling earth, but no one thought his
situation serious. A rooc was mnade
fast to him and an attempt was made
to pull him out, but his shovel had
fallen across his feet, and it was soon
~een that he would have to be dug
The work was at once begun. Suid
denly, to the horror of the great crowl
that had assembleri, the old bricc
sewer right over the wretched man's
head burst and a l.arge stream of water
owed into the excavation, gradually
driving the reseners out. A fira engine
was sent for, and attempted to pump
the inflow of water cut, but it proved
of no avail.
The man was doomed and nothing
could be cdone for him. He was up
right in the hole and the water soon
reached his waist. For the first time
he realized that he would die. Inch
by inch the fluid rose, and the poor
fellow lost his nerve and commenced
to utter the most heartrendering
shrieks and appeals for help. -The
streets became blocked with people,
and as the news spread of what was
going on in that hole the crowd be
ae frantic with a desire to save the
man. But absolutely nothing could
be done to succor him. The water
reached the throat, then the chin,
thea a ripple struck his lips. The
watchers at the brink of the hole
tured their faces away and
groaned as a last despairing shriek
came from the victim. His arms beat
the water back frantically and then

An Interesting Experiment.
A German publication gives the fol

very amusing and interesting experi
met: ''Take a lighted stearin candle
and hold it horizontally over a wide
glass filled with water. The drops of
meltea stearin, when they strike the
surface of the cold water. will be
formed into hemispherical cups and
float on the water. These forms often
take the shape of the flower of the
common Maybell, and can be made
smauller or larger, as pleases, by drop

a greater height. When a sufficient
number of such bells have been made,
take a slender iron wire and cut it
into sections, of which one end is
curved, then warm the straight end
of each by holding it in a flame and
thrust it through one of the wax bells
so that the wire passes quite throg.igh
the bell, leaving it hanging at the
crved end, where it rempins fixed
when cool, looking strikingly like the
Maybell flower when the wire is held

the bed, and ks if out of compliment
to the peculiar cleanliness of the place,
fell to scrubbing his face with a flar

Then with a gesture of almost awe,
he assumed possession of one of the
thin brown hands upon the coverlet.
"My lass, 'ow dog poor yer 'ands

Out of the lining of his big cabbage

bluebells and placed them in her hand.
It was a critical moment for both of

not have explainecl, did not know

She laid the flowers on the table by

pair. Then he rose to say goodlby,
and his wife's face grew, if possible,
paler than before.

Raising herself with an effort, she
pulled the big man's tangled hes..1
down to her, and lkissed him on the
forehead with a gentleness that would
have been grotesque, if the sentiment
that prompted it had not been so
grewsomely pathetic. Then, ats the
matron approached the bed, he went
down the corridor to find the house
The latter, I may tell you. was a
rough man, embittered by hard work
and insufficient returns ; the position

being but little sought after by the
shini,g lights of the profession.
When Daphne's husbaud entered he
was engaged writing to the Board, de

He looked up, and, seeing the man

The Imn&yigra!ion Figuras.
While there are some facts in the I
current statistics of onr National
progress which can be considered only
as indications or prosperity, there are
others which must be acceptefl even
by the most obtuse of ciiamity
howlers as proofs of prosperity.
Among those, for instance. are the
figures from Washington giving the
statistics of immigration for the cur
rent year. Two statements sullico to
tell the story. During Scptc:nb-r,
1815, the arrivals were ,59. o-:iinst

An Extraordinary Beggar.
At Bilboa, Spain, a beggar died
lately at the age of one hundred and
three years. There are said to be quite
a number of centenarians in the land
of the .lidalgos, and the beggar's
death would hardly have been deemed
worthy of public notice if the autopsy
of his body had uct dislosed the very
extraordinary ft-; that the deceased
Lazarus was aconsunptive for cctain
lv not less than half a century.-New

A short time ago a lady in Paris
care violently insane on the str
and was sent to the asylum. H, -
apartments in the Rae Rambuteau
fine ones, for which she paid an an
nual rent of $100-were then visited.
An intolerable stench pervaded them.
The demented woman had completely
"tinned" them with empty sardine
boxes, which emitted the peculiar per
fume. There were four cartfals of
these odorous boxes.
