Standing at a hotel desk, the other day, I picked up a business card that puzzled me. It bore a feminine name—a good Yan kee title—Fanny Harrison you may call it, if it so please you, and beneath the address, in round, decided letter ing, the two mysterious words that roused ray curioeity: " Ladies conduct ed." What it might he to conduct a lady.or why any lady should need con ducting, it [Missed my wit at the time to make out.

A m»! widow is a widow br brevet , widow. who exhibits none of the deeolatton which the wifhL, , «*• ®*rried woman . b u«t.*»d or at least for whom the husband is what Paul said at faith - the 'obstante of things boped for and the evidence of thing* n( * *«." The dictkmarie* define a f™* widow to be a woman who ha* estranged from her husband or has be*® abandoned bv him. It a dif *olt to give the origin of the phrase. " ® tR "w4 » difference of opinion •™ong rompeteat authorities. We xnow that it comes from two good old ""on words, gras and widna. the for «aer meaning •to devour " and the iMter 'fflwmsetesa ' The Greek word M * Tms *£* corresponds wuh the Sazoo P*a, and sigmfie* -to gnaw," torn I which we are led to infer that a grass widow in ancient times was supposed to potwew dangerous qualities, she probably went about as a roaring Boa, i seek»g whom she might devour. She | » an entirely different tvpe of woman hood in this age—thanks to the pro- i gress of civilisation - and is now more I apt to be devoured than to devour. ' Tnere are others who bold to the opin ion that the phrase dates back to a more ancient origin than our Saxon anceatry. They bold that it originated ai the primitive aces of the human ta*e, when pastoral pnrsuita consti tuted the world's sole industry. Men held very Hght views respecting the marital relations in those days, and brevet widows were numerous. It is asserted they herded together in flocks like the sheep on the plain, and sub sisted as best rhev could on fruits and herbage; hence tbev came to be spo ken of as " grass widows." In the absence of any positive evidence as to the correctness of these two theories °* the origin of the phrase, we leave our correspondent to " pay his moaev and take his choice;" but in a spirit of pure kindness we remind him that Mr Weller's cautionary advice to his son Samuel included all sort* of widows.

Jmmm datttU. | pie Parisian advocates discussed the delicate question, " lias a husband a right to open his wife's letters?" at their last conference, and they decided that be has. A journalist who has consulted several extralegal lumina ries on the point finds them, with a single exception, in substantial agree ment with the lawyers. An enlight ened priest, whose name is not given, answered that the doctrine of the church was that the husband is master in the house, and that he had, there fore, a perfect right to open his wife's letters. M. de Presseuse, the leading Protest ant pastor in Paris, was somewhat less affirmative, though, as regards wives who bad anything to fear from the ex ercise of the right, he supported the decision of the barristers, while in the case of a good wife be could not see how it mattered either way. Alexandre Dumas, looking at the question from the historico-philosophii al standpoint, contended that what we knew of the relations of Adam and Kve in the Oar den of Kden clearly establishes the right of the husband to inspect his wife's cor respondence. Mme. Peyrebi e's answer was also in the affirmative, though she added that the question was of no practical importance, as compromising letters are never sent through the jm-t Mine. Adam was the only dissentient. In her opinion the husband who opened bis wife's letters was nothing more nor less than a blackguard. riTE HtIHM IUIIUII / CMeago Xrv* J There are said to be in New York over five hundred unmarried women each of whom is worth over >IOO,OIIO in her own right.

Mutton and chicken broths are made by putting the meat into cold water, enough to cover, with a little salt to draw the juices, cooking long and slowly, closely covered. Every parti cle of fat should be removed after the broth has become cold and before it is offered the invalid.
