It is born of the cre ated hand of man; it lives by his care, and dies when its time is come, the quicker if man's care is withdrawn from it. Man is the soul of the house." Since man and the house are so vitally connected, the creation of the house should be an important consideration. The location is first to re ceive attention, and should be one that affords perfect drainage, opportu nity for ventilation, and admission of sunshine, for fresh air and sunshine are nature's tonics. A firm and dry foundation -are essential points and then the important subject of elevation, one wherein woman's judgment should excell man's. A woman spends many more hours in a house than man does, and if she uses common sense, and studies houses as they are, their deficiencies and defects, she certainly can plan better things. We will say little of the living room, bed rooms or dining room except to urge plenty of air and sunshine, and spaces for furniture, but will devote our thoughts to the kitchen. Elizabeth Hiller says that "art, science and in telligence are as important in the kitchen as in the parlor." With a well ventilated and well lighted kitchen, let us consider the interior, its equip ment and care. This is usually the place that is neglected, when utensils for making the work lighter and easier are concerned. I do not believe that this neglect is always due to lack of money, but often to a lack of knowledge of the proper use of things, and often the abuse they receive discourages the purchase of expensive articles. If we look upon our kitchen as a dumping ground, dirt and disorder will be unavoidable, but if, as domestic science educators are calling it, we consider it a woman's workshop, with a place for everything and every thing in its place, neatness will be in evidence. Make up your mind where is the best places to keep different utensils and china, then keep them in their place, never put any article away half cleaned for in that event you injure the tools provided you to work with, and display your unapprecia tion of materials. After all tin or granite wear is washed cleaned and wiped it should be placed where it is warm to thoroughly dry and avoid rusting. All kitchen articles should be washed as carefully as the finest china and this reminds me that the washing of dishes is much abused. I am inclined to think that the woman who exclaims "Oh! I hate to wash dishes," does not know the best way. The conglomerated mess one so often sees when dish washing is in progress would make any one hate it; but if order and neatness are considered the work need not be disa greeable. Begin by having one pan o hot suds, a second of clear hot water and after washing each article clean, put it in the pan of clear water and rinse thoroughly ci all sides. Then allow to drain on rinsing board or in another pan. When all of our dishes have thus been handled, wipe them. The result will be economy of towels, and the dishes will need no sorting before put ting away. The following suggestions will be valuable in dishwashing: Empty all glasses and if any have had milk In them rinse in cold wa ter, as putting them directly in hot water will make them cloudy. Place all silver in order. Clean the plates and other dishes of particles of food with a scrap of bread, thus avoiding dirty dish water. Pile all dishes orderly on the table, and have a dry, clean space on table for dishes after they are washed and wiped. Do not lay the clean sflver where you will spatter it. Watch the inside of pitchers. Wash your dish towels clean, rinse thoroughly, also your dish rag, and hang in the air or sun to dry. A dish rag hung on a nail under a dish pan, can neither be sanitary or pleasant to bandle. . If common sense, hot water, soap and clean towels are used, there Is no excuse for sticky, cloudy dishes.

Unlike the poet, a feinger is to a certain extent "at least "made" not "born." It is not enough that the as pirant should have a good voice, a good ear, and a fair knowledge of the piano; that she be able to pronounce her own language with delicacy, pu rity and precision, and have acquired a correct accent. But she must be taught many things which it is im possible that she should discover for herself. A singer is not "self-made." She must be "taught" how to phrase intelligently, how to unite song artis tically with speech, how to avoid the harshness of certain consonants how to sing the consonants as well as the vowels, how and when to sacrifice the word to the note, when to sacrifice the note to the word, how to make the story intelligible, how to convey the impression of certain emotions through tone-color, etc. These things must for the most part be imparted. They are the result of method and of experience, and cannot be expected to come by nature. The best singer in any society is, as a rule, the one who has been, taught. She who attempts to "warble her native woodnotes wild" in the drawing-room may be as sured that, however sweet her voice, she can only hope to give an artistic presentation to those who know as little about singing as herself. She will be fettered by no consideration of fitness as to tempo and expression. She will sing the difficult passages slowly and the easy ones rapidly, as she pleases. The poem may be joy ous; but if it s uits her to drawl the melody in a touching and sentimental style, she will do so. Or s he may render the saddest of lyrics in the most cheerful manner, and at agiddy pace. The trained singer, will sing a song or ballad so articulately that every word of the poem is distinctly under stood by the hearers; s he will give due effect and expression to the po em, as a poem; she will have over come,, the primary difficulty of sing ing and speaking simultaneously, so that the word sung will be an ' arti culate word; she will never take a Lfcreath in such a way as to break the now of a sentence, or to Interrupt the sense of the words; the untrained singer often breathing in the middle of a word. The first step towards singing an English ballad should be a careful study of the words. These should be considered from every point of view, and read aloud with every effort to give them full expression, either by hurrying "or retarding, rais ing or lowering the voice in accord ance w ith the sentiment of the story. When- the best interpretation of the story (if it is a ballad) or, as It Is technically called, the best "reading" has been decided upon, the singer has then to study the resources and capa bility of the melody, and to p ractice till she succeeds In singing the words with precisely the same dramatic and sensational effects of utterance as those which she employed when read ing. It is often difficult to pronounce a harsh-sounding word on a high note. It often happens that the very word which should be delivered with the most power falls upon the weakest note of the singer's voice. Grating consonants must be softened down. Vowels must sometimes be made the most of. Sibilants above all, require the most dextrous treatment. To sing is but to recite musically, and a good singer punctuates by taking breath judiciously. There are passages ":n sqfcie ballads where, in order to give e effect of strong passion, such as ope, terror, joy, despair, the breath should come and go in that fluttering, intermittant way which in the case of the real emotion is caused by an ac celerated actUm of the heart: Or there may be occasions w hen the voice seems to fail from emotion, and where the words are interrupted by pauses, or broken by repressed sobs. Effects of this kind give Immense charm to the rendering of a pathetic ballad when, rather than being broad ly expressed, they are skillfully Indi cated, In songs, very frequently, in ballads rarely it happens that a verse Is repeated unchanged, some times in both wards or music At such times the expression s hould vary with each verse. And it is sur prising how many shades of expres sion the simplest poem. may be made to yield. Indeed, a good singer often finds it impossible to sing the same song twice according to the same read ing. It is only the "soulless" singer into whose memory every turn and in flection have been instilled b y the persevering labor of the master, who never deviates into variety. To the genuine musician such singing is val ueless no matter how fine the natural quality of the voice. But many publio vocalists of repute are mere figures who have never had a single original idea, b ut whose every note, look, ges ture, was indicated from w ithout. Thd clever teacher shows his pupil how to use his eyes guides him to the use of his brains. If any one should be disposed to q uestion whether it be worth while to bestow so much time, labor and thought upon the mere singing of an English song or ballad, we would remind them that no. art is unprofitable that refines the taste, ex ercises the understanding, and gives pleasure to others.
