of hearing truths than to stand np day

Truth is one of the best things wo can

There have been many more startling
changes made in woman's costumo than
those of tho present, and they were
far less sensible too. There was :i time
when additions had to bo built to tho
thrones of lSuropo to admit tho royal
hoops and headdresses.
While the bloomer is hardly to bo
adopted for indoor wear, il might he
permitted as we get moro accustomed to
it, and then tho wholesome fear of a
mouse would gradually disappear. For
one I frankly admit that if I had to
wear long skirts all the time I would
tie them to my ankles and howl from
the top of a sideboard if a mouse caino
in my direct ion.
It bus been proved that n man in Iiis
nightdress cannot whip so largo a bur?
glar us ho cuii in his trousers. Statistics
prove this. Does it not show that skirts
are inimical to courage and heroic en?

There seems to ho n vague fear, too,
that woman will finally usurp many of
man's rights and nt last infest the
smoking room, thus taking thospico ont
of the prevailing smoking room anec?

Some think that if woman should once
g.'i control of the smoking room she
would hang up cages full of canaries
and introduce little teacups, with sou?
venir spoons in I hem, of tho kind which
will convoy a drop of lea into the mouth
and tako out everything there is in tho

escape from too much refinement, a

self fully when things go wrong and the

can sit ill a chair without resting their

Though I am thoroughly refined and
have a sweet nature, so sunny at times
that I have to bo careful not to sit too
near the ferns in tho conservatory, and
often when 1 am feeling well one smile

Without making a man effeminate.
Sumo men beliovu that to abstain en?
tirely from profanity will unsex thorn,
but statistics show that this is an ex?
ploded theory. Since tlie churches have
been thrown open to women many have
bcou surprised to sco what good has becu
done, and thousands of church debts con?
tracted by men have been paid by Winn?
en in a circuitous way by cooking up ihe

man among you would ever think that

During tho summer discussions have
been going on upon two great questions
?viz, (1) Which is tho more beautiful,
man or woman? and (2) Is woman hon?
Ono would think that there could bo
no discussion on theso points, and yet
there has been a good deal, and it has
been interesting withont being abusive.
Every one remembers uld Airs. Scraggs,
who stood for an hour looking at the
Apollo Belvidcre, and then, after asking
for tho ninth tinio if it were really
Apollo, said, with a sigli that raised tho
dust of antiquity in clouds, "Well, if
that's the Apollo Belvidcre, give me
Beauty, especially in tho opposite sex,
is a local issuo. Love is said to lie blind,
but the beauty ho sees in some people
does my heart good. There's nothing
that so clearly proves the existence of an
all wise, thoughtful God more than this.
Whore would I bo today if love had not
surrounded me with a glamour for which
I would not take a good sized farm,
with NO head of stock on it?
Sondow, to tho importer of Perchcron
draft hoi sos and Rosa Bonhour Norman
dray stallions, is beautiful. To me ho is
as beautiful as a locomotivo that can
make DO miles an hour, but what well
informed man would prefer him as a
fellow tourist toward n better land to
the scores of thousands of tho angelic
host which graduates every Juno in our
own country alone?
When it comes to one sex criticising
the other, it is like one blind asylum
criticising tho beauty of a rival asylum.
My own judgment, which on general
topics is sought for every day by those
who are strangers to me. would he en?
tirely at fault in a matter of this kind,
and yet I venture to give it with char?
acteristic buoyancy and courage.
Man should lay no claim p> beauty,
for when ho enters the contest and is
couscions of it he becomes merely tho
sil? nt partner of his clothes. He should
be the trunk of tho tree, not the fuliago.
Ho should bo tho energy that moves tho
panorama, but he should not be the
So far os honor is concerned in busi?
ness, woman often saves man from dis?
honor. In licr own dealings she may bo
mote timid about the fulfillment of her
contracts than man, but that is tho fault
of her education and environment to a
cortaiu dogrco. She may ask for margins
and advantages in commercial transac?
tions which man would hesitate to ask
for, but that is because she has learned
that she can do so. Women educated tu
business methods do ntjt tako advantage
So far as honor between the two may
be concerned in affairs of tho heart,
statistics do not aid us, but our own sex
will do just as well to avoid an investi?
After all, however, anything that
savors of savage and heartless discussion
with the two arrayed against each oili?
