MEMORY'S riCTi Ki:.
It wa onl v n pioneer's cabin,
Browned by the wind and rain,
Yet memory'turna around it
With mingled joy uud pain.
I see thro' the years that have vanished
The home of "my prlhtrid mine more;
The vines clamber over the window
And festoon the old walnut-door.
The maples that stood by the roadway,
The orchard, the arbor so cool,
And a irl in her pink frock and bonnet
With books, just returning from
My old home with homely surround
ings, Where gay childish voices were heard,
And a mother's dear face atthedoorwav
With a smile and a kind, hopeful
Have stone like the yesterday's sun
shine. In reality, never I'll see
The whole of this beautiful picture,
So carefully treasured by me.
Hut, hidden in memory's casket,
Not dimmed by the swift, fleeting
Is tin's sweet panorama before me;
I view it through fast falling tears.
The things that constitute the true
charm of 11 home cannot be bought
or secured by the labor of hirelings.
It is only the mistress of the house,
the wife and mother, through her
love and union of interest with her
husband and children, who, guided
by her affection, will labor to bring
that charm about her household
which springs from systematic la
bor, scrupulous neatness and econo

Take Care of the Children.
Aii exhange says: Take the school
room and discover to your dismay
how many ailments of children can
be traced directly to overheating,
overcrowding, poor ventilation, had
drainage and defective lighting.
Ask yourself if it is not a disgrace to
civilization that maladies should
exist, familiarly known and spoken
of as "school-bred diseases?" Ought
we not to blush when we seat our
children, or those of anybody else,
011 a bench or at a desk where it is
impossible to work with the body in
a proper position? Ought we to al
low for a moment in our schools,
any system of writing which is like
ly to produce curvature of the spine
and which does produce it in a great
number of cases? Have we not
cause to be ashamed if we force chil
dren legally to attend the public
schools and then provide them with
books so badly printed that they
permanently injure the eyes?
These are some of the indictments
as to books and school-rooms. Let
us see how we may be judged when
we consider school curricula and
systems of management. Note, of
course, that all of these are not by
any means bad, many of them being
well suited to some children in fact,
but the danger in their application
lies in that they are not suited to all.
1 lie great fault in our school system
is that we try to educate children in
battallions. We do not individual
ize sufficiently, and the one sweep
ing reform which we hopi thatchild
study may make, if it does nothing
else, is to open people's eyes to the
fact that you cannot bring up chil
dren as you can string beans, plant
ing them at exactly the same depth,
furnishing them with the same fer
tilizers, and providing them on trie
same day with twelve dozen bean
poles to run on all of the same
length and diameter and stuck
straight into the ground at rigidly
Numbers of so-called "dull" and
"backward" children are such only
because of their impaired senses,
and when this is recognized, a phy
sican's advice obtaiued and condi
tions changed to meet their needs,
they become as bright as others.
Many of the school records of such
children are intensely pathetic in
the glimpses they give of the long
and bitter suffering which these mis
understood human creatures must
have endured before the new science
came to their aid.
Not defective children alone, how
ever, suffer from bad school meth
ods, for which, by-the-way, we are
more to blame than the teachers. It
is well known that a nervously over
wrought child, either in school or at
home, becomes weak-willed and va
cillatiug, and that mental excite
ment and strain, such as are caused
by high-pressure examinations aud
rigid marking, are marvellous pro
ducers of chorea and hysteria. Con
tinued over-presuro in childhood
meaus weakened possibilities in
adult life. Forcing a child prema
turely into the conventional studies
of the school may cause arrested de
velopmetit, and, finely, out-of-school
study, so univei sally required, is
most injurious in the brain-weari
ness and loss of sleep it occasions
A tine, strong, well-balanced child
can, it is true, go through almost
any system of education and come
out unscratched, but how about those
who are mentally, physically or
morally handicapped for the ordeal?
Is it our desire that "even the least
of these little one shall perish?"
Boleros, belts aud corselets are
great features in the modes of the
day ; corselets especially, made on
well-fitted and boned lining, and
cut out in graceful lines either in
front or at the back, will be very
fashionable with all kinds of dress
es, but above all with evening and
ballgowns. For this purpose corse
lets are made of white satin with ap
pliques of antique yellow laces, of
glittering embroideries in silver,
diamonds, pearls and sequins, and
corselets and wide belts, either laced
or fastened with jewelled buttons,
paste buckles, or dainty bows of rib
bon will be much worn.
The Winter Shirt Waist.
The winter shirt waists are radi
cally different in one way from those
of the summer. They are made with
conspicuously smaller sleeves. The
sleeves have nothing of the bouffant
effect. They are not close-fitting,
but what fulness they have droops
demurely. At the juncture of the
cutf with the sleeves there is a pert
little frill of ribbon. It is a new
wrinkle of the winter shirt waist,
and i9 used to prevent the cold from
reaching the arm.
The new shirt waists, made in
plain flannel, in a variety of colors,
cost at the gentlemen's furnishing
stores ?-. They are unlined, but
beautifully made. They can be
bought in four shades of red, in - tan,
green, two different shades of dark
blue, in black and seal-brown.
Besides the flannel waists in these
dark colors there are others m the
delicate shades, such as pink, pale
blue, nile-green, fawn, yellow and
The shirt waists made in the new
Persian flannels come next in price
at the gentlemen's furnishing
stores, cost $7.50. The flannels them
selves are beautiful, both in coloring
and design, and they are made up in
particularly stylish waists.
, Waists in a light quality of cordu-
roy and plaid wooIhi material are
also beiiitf iiijuIh. Thcv we not only
good looking but are mont durable.
Then come the changeable silk
shirt waists, which rival the summer
waists in beauty. When inad to or
der of the best quality of changeable
taffeta these waists cost about $10.
The stock is still in favor as the
shirt waist necktie. It is wound
twice around the collar, and ties in
a bow in front. The collar gener
ally worn with it is turned down just
a trifle all the way around.
The most fashionable string ties
are half the width that were in the
summer. These ties are sold more
in changeable silk and in gay plaids
than in satin.
Or course the winter shirt waist
girl must wear a belt and here she
has a great variety to choose from.
In leather the newest belt is of
monkey-skin in that shade of blue
known as electric. This belt, fas
tened with a gold buckle wrought
with blue, adds much to the effect of
the shirt waist.
Begin with your boys, if you have
any, and train them early and late
and energetically away' from the
monstrous and sickening expecto
ration habit of American men. No
mother does her duty bv her son un
less she brings him up a non-epitter.
Odd bits of ribbon may be utilized
in the making of little button bags,
bags for embroidery silk aud sp.nl
cases. Embroider on each bag, in
outline stitch, what especial kind of
button reposes within it and finish
oif the ends of the drawstring with
pretty little tassels made of odd ends
of silk thread or floss. Of course the
drawstring should be a small silk
cord; it is better and stronger than
baby ribbon. Bits of cardboard, ac
curately cut and nearly covered
with ribbon or a 6crap of silk, can
be made into pretty and useful nee
dle and pin holders.
Keep Children It tiny.
Children should be furnished with
employment, which is sometimes
difficult to provide. What we call
a natural lover of mischief is noth
ing more than activity. Children
are restless for employment. They
must have something to do, and if
they are not so furnished they will
do mischief. Do not blame them: it
is their nature and should be en
couraged rather than checked. In
furnishing little employments you
can form the habits and cultivate
the tastes. What is begun should
be finished. Care should be taken
with whatever is done, and neatness
should be encouraged.
A Delicious Omelet.
Boat up smooth the yolks of four
eggs, men beat up into a froth,
with a fork, the whites of the four
eggs in a separate dish, and sprinkle
on them one-half teaspoonf ul of bak

yolks and pour into a hot pan, aud
cook the same as for any other ome

A jammed finger should be
plunged into water as hot as
can possibly be borne. The appli
cation of hot water causes the nail
to expand and soften, and the blood

never be neglected, as it may lead
to mortification of the bone.
