Mow Little Princesses Dress.
In London, July 15th, the three
little daughters of the Prince ami
Princess of Wales came near being
killed by runaway horses. If there
were nothing else worthy the ad
miration of observers in the couduct
of the heirs Ij the British throne (in
poiut of fact there is- a very great
deal to be admired) their manner of
rearing their children would awaken
approbation from every parent. The
boy8 are sen t oft* on a cruise around
the globe, and it is understood that
no favors are shown them above other
luds of equal naval rank on ship
board, whatever festivities are creat
ed in their honor at the dilfereut
ports where they land. As to the
little girls,'if I were asked to name
those who, being the child reu of a
lady, are uniformly most plainly
dressed ami who conduct themselves
most modestly, of all such in Eng
land, 1 shoulu say at once ''the little
PrincesSca of Wales." 1 have seen
them at the opera, with their parents,
when, on one occasion, the little one
getting sleepy, her mot her took her
up on her lap and let her sleep there
on her knees all the evening. I have
seen them at charitable ceremonies
which were attended by much pomp
aud circumstance. 1 have seen them
riding, driving, walking, boating,
ami on none of these occasions, I
venture to say, did the wearing ap
parel of each one of the little girls
exceed in cost a ten-dollar bill; A
simple white muslin frock, uudeco
ratcd by any lace, unrelieved by any
silk slip or expensive sash, formed
the opera costume; the winter aud
boating dresses are of serge, the sum
mer dresses of washing prints. And
all are made in the simplest style?no
go Herings, puckcriugs ilouucings; no
bias bands, no khife - pica tings. No
feathers iu the hat; no furbelows any
where. Would that the "Mrs. Lof
ties" of America, those vulgar and
tasteless creatures who at the ?re
sent time at the watering places all
over the country are making the
bodies of their children a mere means
of parading their power to spend
money, and who are ruining the mor
al health of their offspring by incul
cating in these impressionable 3 ouhg
breasts a mad passion for personal
adornment?would that these sill\
and reprehensible mothers, I say,
could be here to see the pattern set
in this matter by the Princess of
Wales. The example is followed, as
all examples are when coming from
the fountain head of social eminence,
and the result is scon in the admir
able dressing of young English peo
ple, universally extolled in every
community of taste. Every one re
joices to hear that the little Prin
cesses came to no harm yesterday in
the runaway. Their carriage was
badly shattered, and a new wheel had
to be fitted to it in the open street be
fore it could be rolled on to the coach
house. The little girls, with their
governess, were safely lifted out, and
accompanied by a gentleman of
standing at court, who happened to
be passing, they made their way on
foot to Marlborough House.

When Men Are at Their BcHt.
Dr. Heard states that from an
analysis of the lives of a thousand
representative men in all the great
branches of tin? human family he
made: the discovery that tin; golden
decade was between forty ami fifty;
the l.ra/.cn between twenty and
thirty; the iron between fifty and
sixty. The superiority of youth
and middle life over old age in origi
nal work appears all '.be greater when
we consider the fact that all the posi
tions of honor and prestige?pro
fessorships and public stations?are
in the hands of flic old. Reputation,
like money and position, is mainly
confined to the old. Men are not
widely known until long after they
have done the work that gave them
their fame. Portraits of' great men
are delusions; statues arc false! They
are taken when men have become
famous, which, oh the average, is at
least twenty-live years after they did
the work which gave them their
fame. Original work requires en
thusiasm. If all the work done by
men under forty-live was annihilated,
they won hi be reduced to barbarism.
Men arc at their best tit that time
when enthusiasm and experience are
almost evenly balanced. This period,
on the average, is from thirty-eight
to forty. After this the law is that
experience increases, but enthusiasm
decreases. Of course there arc ex
ceptions.?Christ fan Intelligencer.
Professor Scott, who has recently
been appointed to the chair of Agri
culture jit Cirencester College, Eng
land, remarked at the opening of the
session "that it was a sad blot on the
intelligence of the nge that probably
ninety-nine per cent, of our farmers
came into their profcKsiou in life
without having ever received the
slightest training, cither scicutiflc or
technical, with special reference to
their needs and rcquiremen'fe.' The
old Roman agriculturist, Columelln,
said something of the same sort more
than eight hundred years ago, and
still we have to complaiu of the neg
lect of the proper training of youug
men to enable them to become suc
cessful farmers. It is not quite bo
bad now as in the. days of ancient
Rome, hut we have still far too many
agriculturists who think more of
watching the different phases of the
moon than of studying the chemistry
of the soil.

A Milwaukee bald-headed man told
a doctor that his iiair was falling out,
and asked him if he didn't know of
something that would stop it. The
doctor said he would fix him, so he
wrote a prescription, which was as
Chloride of sodium-1 oz.
Aqua purn --3 oz.
Shake well and rub on the scalp every
The bald mnu went to a druggist
aud had the prescription put up, pay
ing $1.00 for it. He asked the drug
gist it it wasn't a little high,.but .'felt
ashamed when the druggist asked
biih if he knew how much aqua ptfra
cost a gallon. He said he didn't, but
supposed it come high. The drug
gist told him that aqua puia was one
of the most penetrating drugs in the
store, and as for chloride of sodium,
there was nothing like it, and the
war in Peru had sent it up kiting.
The bald man used the medicine,
and felt as though it was doing him
good. His wife noticed little, new
hairs coming out, and he felt good;
so when the stuff was gone lie took
the bottle to the store and had it -fill
ed again. The chap who filled it thin
time was another chap, and when the
bald headed man threw down a dol
lar the druggist said: "O, neter
mind. We won't charge you any
thing for that." The bald man ask
ed how that was, when the druggist
said; "Why, it is only salt and water,
anyway. The salt is only 2 cents a
pound, and the water is pretty cheap
this year.'] The bald man gave one
gasp, and said: "Well h}'the great
bald-headed Elijah, I paid $1 for fill
ing that bottle before, and I want
my money back. It is a bald headed
swindle. I thought that Peruvian
story didn't look plausible." The
druggist gave the man a box of ci
gars to keep still about it, but ho
won't speak to the other druggist
who charged him a dollar.?l*cih't
High salaries for public officials
are advocated on the ground that
they will place the oJHcial beyond
temptation. This however does not
follow. High salaries encourage
extravagance, venality and dissipa
tion. Habits grow with what the}'
are fed on. The man who serves his
country out of patriotism for a ica
sqnable salary can always be trusted,
while the man who only serves hia
country out of avarice for a high sal
