miner and Cowboy'sj Reaped
lor the Gentler Sex.
Cor. New York Mail and Express.
In the early days of California the men
wlio gathered in the mining camps intlio
guldies or among the mountains seldom saw
a tt oman's face. They grew careless of their
own appearance; left hair as well as beard to
grow Lair which never saw a brush or
comb till they came to look like wild men of
the woods; yet beneath the unkempt locks,
uh1 under the shaggy breast and tattered
garments, there lay in tho heart of every
man a memory ot some farm-house faraway,
and of a mother or sitter for tvhoe dear sako
ho reteronced the very form of woman as
sacred. Htr approach commanded every
token of rustiecr. Said one who had
lived much among the miners: ""If
they were driving a team on a
du-ty road, and met a woman,
ri ling the other way, thoy would turn to tho
right or left to gito her tho tide of tho road
where tho dust would not blow upon her."
And if, j reliance, nt long intervals there aj
inni-ed in tha camp tho face of a woman,
et cry mothers wai of them stood ono side on
the mountain trail to let her pass, and pulled
olT. his miner's cap, and not seldom tho tears
stole into bis eyes at thought of tho old folks
at home; of the mother who sat in tho
chimney-corner, and who, as the winds blew
and the rains fell, iieered out into tho dark
ness, nnd sighed as s-ho asked, "t hero is my
wandering boy to-night r It would not havo
been safo for any ono to whisper a disrespect
ful w onl as that face passed by. If borno vul
gar fellow ventured a coarse remark, tho eyes
of others flashed, but thoy bit their liisand
were silent till the woman was out of sight,
and then, said our informant, '-that fellow
had got to take a licking!"' It seemed as if
every miner felt that his own mother or
sLsturwas insulted by a sneer at ono of her
sex. and thoy answered the insult with heavy
blowstill tho coward was kicked and cuffed
out of camp.
When I hear uch stories as this, my heart
relents towards a class of which I had judged
hastily and unjustly. And for tho same rea
son that I would stand up for the miners, I
would sav a cood word for tho cowboys. Wo
need not be frightened by a name. They are
not xvorso than other men. Why should they
lie! They pursue an ancient and honorablo
occupation, ono held in esteem among every
rural and pastoral people since the time of
Abraham. The sons of Jacob themselves, as
well as tho men who nttended their father's
Mocks and herds, w ero cowboys.
In our new states and territories the in
creasing influences of civilization will work
greut changes in the character of tho jiopula
tion. Time will soften their roughness and
givo them more lwlishod manners; but it is
to 1 hojiud that it will not nbato their cour
ngo or their chivalry; for these are elements
of a noblo manhood, and may in tho future
contribute to form the mighty people that
uro to constitute and govern our western nud
southern commonw caltlis.
A Sunsliliiy Ilunbaittl.
A sunshiny husband nuike a merry,

in her heart over her pudding- and her

Uie security she feels of hU approbation and
admiration. You may think it weak or
childish, if you please, bat it i tho admired
wife, the wifo who hears wonls of praise and
receives smiles of commendation, who it

a timid, meek, self-distrusting littlo liody,
fairly bloom into strong, self-reliant woman

companionship of n husliaud who really went
out of his way to find occasion for showing
her how fully ho trusted her judgment and
how fully he deferred to her opinion.
Too mirli KUIns.
Some lidies are beginning to complain 1 1
the kissing nuiance a now-practiced lietttcrn
members of their sex. It is declared that tho
practice of ono woman saluting another with
u kiss whenever she meets her after an nl
svneo is U-com ng too loniiiioii, and tliat the
oscillatory welcome should lio limited to la
dle who are very dear f i iends and to gen
tlemen when proisoily nuthorI.od. Many la
dies who do not like to Kvm nulo are com
IwIUhI to kiss other ladies of their acquaint
ance w hen they meet them, livnuse It seems
to lo expectetl, and to refuse to return the
salutation would lw cmbai-nissing.

New-York Etcuiug lVst,
It is only when a woman is morbid from
ill-htalthoroterttork that tit j dust which
uccuiiiulatcs on tho table, or along tho edges
of the, carjiet, or in the corner of tho stairs,
lies like a burden uixm her; a hopeless bur
den, for it is, i.s sho know-, in stronger and
brighter moments a simple mutter not re
tmiring much tin.c or muscle to remove. If
she feels like this tordajs txigethersho shoulil
summon resolution enough to wulk out of
tho houso and look lit th; outsido ttoild.
She netnl not go far to see a great deal that
will givo relief to hor mind.

Death In the Olah-Clotli.
fcI had some neighbors once clever, good
sort of folks; one fall four of them were sick
at one time with typhoid fever. Tho doctor
ordered the xinegar barrel: whitewashed,
and threw about 40 cents' worth cf car
bolic acid in the swill-pail and dejarted. I
went into the kitchen to make gruel; I
needed a dish-61oth, and looked about and
found several, and such 'rags:' I burned
them all and called the daughter of the liouse
to get me a dish-cloth. Bho looked round on
the tables. 'Why,' said she, 'there teas about
a dozen here this morning;' and she looked in
the wood-box end on the mantel piece, and
felt in tho dark corner of the cupboard.
'Well,' I said, 'I saw som.j old, black, rotten
rag3 lying round, and I burned them, for
there is death in such dish-cloths as thee, and
you must never use such again.'
"I 'took turn-' at nursing that family four
weeks, and I believe those dirty dish-cloths
tt ere the causof ail that liard work: Then."
fore. I say to every hoavkeeiior, keep jour
didi-cloths clean. You may wear your
dresses without ircmng, jour sun-bonneH
without elastics, but you mast keep your
dish-cloths clean. You may only comb
your hair on Sundays, you need not wear a
collar unless you go from home; but you
must wash your dish-cloth. You may only
sweep tho floor 'when tho sign gets right;'
the window don't need washing; you can look
out at the door; that spider web on the front
porch don't hurt anything; but, as you love
your lives, wash out your dish-cloth. Let the
foxtail get ripe in the gard?n (the seed is n
foot deep anyway), let the holes in tho heels
of your husband's foot-rags go undarned, let
tho sano iro unEathered, let tho children's
shoes go two Sunday's .without blacking, let
two hens sit four weeks on ono wooden egg;
but do wash out your dish-cloths. Eat
withouta table-c!oth;wash your faces and let
them dry; do without a curtain for your
windows, nud cako for your tea: but, for
Heaven's sake, keep your dish-cloths clean.
What Ik Wanted.
Mary K. Ford in Kansas City Journal.!
In tho olden times, there would really have
been more excuse for living without a homo
than at present, for the hfo was so much
simpler, the spiritual needs wore much nar
rower, that one really required littlo else in a
homo than good eating and sleeping. "And
what else do jou wantr inquires some
plethoric papa, whosj stomach is always tho
least hatLsfiei part of his licing, or .some
fashionable muninui, whoso breakfast cii
and soirees are so absorbing that she has no
time for butchers and bakers, and children s
What else does ono want? In the first
place a quiet comer far away from gossip
and prying eyes, whero one's own individu
ality can grow and develop without fear of
hostile criticLsm, and when-, one can some
times enjoy a moment's quiet, untroubletl
with one's children or one's friends. And in
the second place, a spotxthvro the children
of the household can keep their littlo hearts
young and not grow too soon learneJ in tho
wisdom of this world.
Most Aiiioricans do mt hate homo?, thoy
hate merely plans to stay, where the father
can road his now spaiier, tlio mother ply the
sewing machine, and the children mal.o mo
lasses candy, or have annual birthday par

love is cherished, thoughtl are festered and

their philosophy. Jlnttr'amilias goes to

"Why, law bless you. I can't help It; lean
see so well with my new spectacles It appears
to put new lire In me. I actually feel twenty
years younger, and I have Lad them only a
short time. You see. I did not buy when Dr.
v.ut nrt earns to Wichita : I thought 1 would
lust wait and let some others try. I had paid
out so niucu moaej im wpcvmv., - .j WM
were getting poorer and poorer all the time,
that 1 had abont despaired or ever getUag any
lliing that w onld stay the dread lul loss or sight.
But when I came to see and talk with my neigh
bors, and with jieople from other parts or the
country who had ueed Dr. host's improved
lenses (tome or them for years), I concluded I
would try It once more, and I am frank to con
fess they aro far ahead .of my expectations.
Oh, yes. It's a hard country, on eyjslght. AU
this western prairie country lamnoh. harder nn
on the eyes than the eastern states, and come to
thbikof it. It is as much outor place to try to
oo n, i,i iturin of noectacles here In Kansas as
it would he to try to firm with the old style or
farming tools, ami. sir, iuon-iuiww u
Ihat Ihe man that wont go to Dr. lot and be
lltteil with a pairol his Improved lenses ought
to hat o hU self-hinder and Improved plows
ii n rrnm him. and be compelled to cat his
grain with the old hand sickle and plow with
,ii . mulon.nifiiiMlinfird tiloW. "
It is Just as Important to use improven iciiors
properly fitted, In order to save eyesight, as it
Istousatlieeeir-binder to save grain In this
western country. ..,,.-.,
Xonse talking, nothing short of Dr. osts
Improved spectacles w ill save the vision In this
