The Last Rani of Oakes Ames-Over?
hauling thc Railroad Companies in
the Sen m te jost Before Adjournment
The Attempt to Prepare for a Return
to Specie Payments.
It will be recollected that some months
since the claim of Admiral Farragut and bis
officers and men for prize money lor the de?
struction of the "rebel" vessels at the capture
of New Orleans, was referred to arbitrators
(Messrs. H. W. Payne, of Boston, 6. V. Fox,
formerly assistant secretary of the navy, aud
Thomas J. Durand, of this city.) To-day the
arbitrators flied their report, awarding the
sum of two hundred and sixty-eight thousand
dollars. They found that on the "rebe;" ves?
sels there were thirteen hundred and forty
three men, and they allow, to the claimants,
two hundred dollars for each man engaged on
the enemy's boats.
Treasurer Spinner bas not yet received any
reply from Oakes Ames, lo whom he forward?
ed the ten thousand dollars In bonds ot the
Credit Mobilier, which were turned over io
him by Representatlve Kelley. The bonds
were sent to Oakes Ames on the 15th instant,
with a request that he would so endorse them
as io make them convertible, io order that
they might be converted Into the treasury.
Trie question which naturally arises 1?, does

Spinner's rtquesr, or bold on to the bouda,

One of the moat Important acts of to-daj 's
Closing of the special session of the 8euate
was the passage of the resolution of th- chair?
man ol the select committee on transportation
routes to the seaboard, authorizing the com?
mittee to sit during the recess ot the Senate,
and to examloeaud report upon the ?-inject
of transportation routes to the seaboard ; and
to Inquire and report at tile next session us to
the nature aud extent of the oblgailon sub
sistiDg between the railroad companies and
the postal service ol t ie country, and whether
any, and what, addiilonal legislation is neces?
sary to guard the postal service against inter?
ruption or Injury by hostile acllou on the
part *oT any or all of said railroad
companies. The latter portion of the duly of
the committee bas special reference to the
postal car difficulty as lately developed by
managers ol certain railroads centering ID New
York. This action ol the Senate bill lean io a
consideration1 of the wini- que-Uoo of the
government supervision of railroads. Both
the resolutions, which passed without a word
of opposition to-day, were seriously objected
to some days ago. This Budden change of sen?
timent was occasioned by the action or the
managers of railroads above mentioned. The
opposition lo a coverumeut supervision has
thus been meaaurubly diminished.
When tbe Senate adjourned to-day it had
not acted on the resolution offered by Senator
Fenton giving authority to the flnauce com?
mittee to Inquire what measures can be adopt?
ed to give the country a currency convenible
into gold at the will of the holder. Mr. Fen
ton bod '.n elaborate speech prepared ou ihi*
subject, which he did not obtain an opportu?
nity to deliver. Although uo formal authority
has been given, lt is understood i rut Mr. Fen?
ton and other members ot the finance commit?
tee will, from lime to lime, during the recess
bold Informal coherences with ihu leading
bankers and financiers of New York and the
other great eldee, with a view io ihe agree?
ment upon some proper and comprehensive
measure whereby our finalices eau be placed
upon a healthy and Maule basis.
General Gordon visited the President, who
promised that, were it to become evident that
corruption had been used to secure ihe nomi?
nations to Federal offices in Georgia, either by
use of money or forgery, such nominations
would be withdrawn.
Alcorn called up West's resolution authoriz?
ing the committee on the levees of the Missis?
sippi lo sit, during (he recess, at Waahiugion
or elsewhere. Ferry, ol Connecticut, object?
ed to giving ibis authority, and raiseu the
point Of order against the resolution. Mr.
Chandler insisted thai nothing practical could
come out of ibis subject, aud opposed giving
the authority. After limber discussion, ihe
point ol order was overruled by 25 to 19, and
the resolution waa then adopted. The Senate
adjourned sine die.

Joseph T. Curry, (he so-called prophet and

of about one hundred persons, meu and

called lilmseif Elijah aud Propnet Yahveh

The colony went along swimmingly for avery

Although planting cannot be regarded as t
having yet lalrly commenced In the Soulhern t
Slates, owlug io the backwardness of the I
season, the preparations for lt have BO far t
progressed as to indicate Its probable nature c
and extent. So far the lacie warrant ihe con
ruusiou that lhere will be a considerable in- I
crease in the breadth of lund. The present e
and the lust seasons were prosperous for s
pouters, and notwithstanding ihe drawbacks
of partial (allures of Hie crop In various locali?
ties, yet ihe profils were large and satisfactory,
sufficiently BO lu demonstrate beyond all ques?
tion, that colton ls tail! ihe most advantageous
and profitable product ot Soulbern industry.
This fact ls producing the na ural result of In
creasing tne culture ot the staple, and il (he
weather should present even ordinary Induce?
ments for niant lng, there can be no doubt lhat |
the area placed under cultivation will largely
exceed any former year. I t
AS an illustration of this tendency, it may | c
be stated that the Southern papers commence
their annual campaign for extendive collou I \
and large corn pluming with more than usual I ?
vigor and vehemence. They Ignore the fact [
that an acre of co ti ou is wurth more than an i
acre ot corn, and predict general bankruptcy j i
unless ihe bout li raises more corn and less
conon. Some journals even InsiBt that ihe 11
only hope of ihe South ls to limit tier produo- j
Hon, thus adoDtlng ihe now almost exploded
lallucy ol the trades unions, that the best way \
to Increase wealth ls to limit production. In I
realltv, Southern Drosperity ls best promotea i
by large crops arid low prices. Dear colton [
limlie consumption, enhances the prlceB of J <
lexilles and all kinds ol exchangeable com-11
modliie8, aud operates as a direct bounty on
loreign competition. The Southern planters I
Instinctively comprehend their true Interests ]
In this maller, und are not likely to forego the
cultivation where lt may be practicable io any |
considerable extent.
Another evidence of an enlarged breadth ol
cotton cull ure is afforded by ihe very marked
activity of ihe trade iu fertilizer?. Accounts
from Ute colton States concur In representing
that Hie quantity ol lertil zers taken ibis year j 1
ls considerably lo excess cf last year, when, lt [
may be remembered, the amount was regard?
ed os unprecedented. Tue various firms in
this City engaged In the irade ure very busy
tilling orders, and it is knowu that ihe trade is
equally active in other distributing centres.
Tim carrying capacities ol the Southern rail?
road companies are beginning to be taxed lo
the utmost to move the consignmeuts of fer?
tilizers to the Interior.
Tnl8 Increased uss ot fertilisers may be re?
garded as a new and marked feature ot cot?
ton planting. Experience shows that no In?
vestment pays better. Fertiliser! carry the
crop through vicissitudes of weather that
would be otherwise latal lo it. lt permits
later plantiug and earlier picking, aud ibua
saves uearly iwo weeks' lime at tue first and
last of the season, when the weather Is liable
to ihe most extreme and dangerous vicissi?
tudes. Besides these advantages, amount-)
ing almost to an exemption against the usual
chances ot the weather, ll is found that the
Increased yield more than pays ihe cost ol Ihe
?ernlizers. They can be generally relied on
to affurd asure and paylug crop under circum?
stances where, without them, a corn crop
would be the only alternative. In view of |
these facts lt ls no wonder that the trade in
fertilizers should be active beyond all prece?
dent. Planters are finding out that they can?
not afford to dispense with their use.

The Terrible Life-Drama of the Crazed
King of Brituny- V Masterpiece of
Delineation and Portraiture.
Professor J. W. Mi.es. delivered the fourth
of his series of lectures upon the dramas of
Shakespeare before a large and appreciative
audience at the Confederate Widows'Home
last evening, the subject of the lecture being
King Lear. The lecturer said that, without
discussing the vexed question as to which of
Shakespeare's dramas should be pronounced
pre-eminent, lt could be safely asserted that in
none of them were the essential elements
of tragedy more skilfully grouped or
the tragic action more perfectly sus?
tained than In King Lear, and he
quoted Hallam's thoughtlul and appre?
ciative critique on this characterization In
support of this assertion. He then, referring
to the text of the play, and quoting copiously I
from lt during the remainder ot the lecture,
sketched in bold outline the story of the
drama, accompanying lt with running com?
ments, criticisms and explanations whlob
served to individualiza and present in vivid
colors before the audience the characters of
each of the actors In the sad drama, and
especially thal of ihe generous, impulsive,
noble-hearted monarch whose mind was
shattered by the contemplation of the base
Ingratitude ol those daughters to whom he
bad bequeathed a royal dowry upon their
hollow protestations of filial love.
Io the first scene of the drama the lecturer
pointed out the Indications furnished by the
text of the slight warping of the king's Intel?
lect, even then perceivable, and be deduced
(rom this a refutation of the criticism that
Shakespeare had wrought by chance, and an
argument to show that he had constructed 1
this, like his other dramas, with consistent '
and consummate art. In the first scene the (
king displays at one? his generosity, bis im- 1
petuoBity, and the impatience or contradiction 1
natural lo a monarch accustomed to lifelong '
obedience, and at the same time be exhibited 1
an almost monomaniac tl desire, growing ont '
of his Inordinate self-love, for the flattery of '
hlsdanghters'.protestations of affection, an ex-1 '
aggerated mannerism of expression and a mag-1
nlfying of trivial Intentions Into mighty pro- '
(ects, which prepared the spectator lo j
some extent 1er the subsequent un-1 '
settling of his Intellect tinder a crushing In-1 '
"ry. As first presented the character of the '
1 was by no moans a lovable one, and it I
wu \n rulisllc triumph of the poet when, In 11
the s sequent unfolding of the tragedy, be I
canseu 'he spectator lo sympathize Intensely I <
with thu "vme King, whom in the outset they 11
could not mt regard with aversion not un-1 <
mixed with contempt. The characters of the I <
subordinate actors ia this first scene, the hy-11
poer;tical Gonerll and Regan, the loving but 11
frank and modest Cordelia, the impetuous, 11
honest, loyal E tri ot Kent, the selfish suitor ol I '
Burgundy, and ihe noble lover of France, 11
were also sketched by the lecturer, each ina
word or phrase, but with such accuracy of
description as to present them graphically to 11
ibe imagination of the listener.
Following ihe action of ihe drama the lee
lurer came next to the scene In which ihe I
Ring, aller his gift of his Kingdom lo his two
daughter* and his domiclllallun with the elder
af these much-protesting viragos, began to 11
make the first discovery of ber Ingratitude
and ol her studied Intention lo debase and
humiliate him. Strlvlog against the convie
Lion ol her baseness, he cherished In his heart 11
Lhe ideal of Hie loving daughter which his I ]
own parental love bad fixed In bis mind In
place ol her irue Image, until the indignities 11
which she heaped upon him left him no lur-1
titer room for possible doubt, and his great I !
heart was pierced through and through by I j
the pangs of the monster Ingratitude. Then he
turned toward his second daughter confident I '
In the expectation ol finding In ber heart the I '
proof of the solemn protestations of love that I,
she bad made In common with her sister, and I1
In her palace the hom* which bis age and dig-1?
nicy required, but there he found an unmask-1,
lng of Hypocrisy still more completo and cruel, 11
and a repulse even more heartless than Gon- j !
erll's. Ia the meantime a second plot had ,
been interwoven with the malo thread of lhe 11
drama, In ihe Mephlsiophellin machinations 11
of Edmund, the illegitimate son of the Earl of I \
Glosler, against his brother E Jgar, wblcb had I ]
iffected the alienation ol their father from I'
Edgar, who,in the d if guise ot a crazy mend!-1 j
cant, was hiding bis unhappy existence In the I ;
neighborhood of his father's house. This 11
brought the drama up to the opening of the I j
third act, and the lecturer remarked that I j
nowhere in the whole range of English drama I ;
was there anything lo rival the sublimity of I j
the portrayal in this act of the terrible, con-1,
tending emotions In the breast of Leur re-1 j
Bponding lo lhe mad raging of lhe tempest I j
which beat upon his defenceless head, and I,
the deep pathos imparted to the soeoe by the I j
presence of the faithful fool, who, with his J
disjointed intellect but lilthfu! devotion, WBB J
trying to beguile the sad fancies of the King. ,
Then were presented the cruel scene of Corn- J i
wall's vengeance upon Gloster, enkindled by I
the treachery of Edmund, the faithful con-1 j
duct ol the disguised Edgar in conveying his I i
sightless lather to the camp of the 11
Invading French, whom Cordelia's love had IJ
brought to t he succor of her lather; lhe lecher- I :
ons treachery of the tv o sisters Gonerll and 11
Regan toward their husbands and each other I '
In their scheming for the love ol Edmund, and I (
the whole ol the sud story until the final calas-1 j
trophe niter lhe battle scene In which lhe I j
actors, goud and bad, were all swallowed up J ?
in D common death except Edgar, Kent and j i
Albany. The whole was graphically pictured; I
and the character of the leading actor In the j j
drama was drawn In vivid colois lhat made a I,
marked impression upon the minds of the I j
listeners. _ _
Preparations for tho City Election of I
187a- A Host of Probable Candidates
.virent!y in the Field. !
Notwithstanding the fact that by lhe action i
of tbe Legislature last winter the Charleston
municipal election will not take place this
year until lhe first Wednesday of October In-11
stead cf the first Wednesday of August, as io
1871, the "log-rolling and p pe-laying" among
the local politicians have already commenced
In earnest, and In certain quarters the plana
of campaign are being almost as actively dis?
cussed as though the momentous event was
to take place next month or next week. The
Republican politicians are, as usual, laking
time by the forelock, and their preparations,
even at this early stage, leave no doubt that
they will strain every effort to retrieve their J
defeat in 1871, and that If ihe Conservatives
would retain the fruits of their triumphs of J
that year it behooves them to think seriously J
of organizing their forces and prepare for
Tile aspirants in tbe Republican ranks for
the offices of Mayor and Aldermen, which are
tbe principal positions to be filled, are, as
usual, as plenty as blackberries. For the
Mayoralty, the name ot ex Sheriff E. W. M.
Mackey ls the most prominency mentioned.
He would receive, ol course, -.be support of
all that wing of the Republican party who
were known as the Mackey lies In the county
cont? st of last tall, and who, in the city, out?
numbered their opponents, the Bowenltes, by
more than two to one; audit ls claimed that
most ol the rank and lile of the latter faction,
now that their leader ls Installed as sheriff ot
the county, will cordially support their late
opponent, Mackey, In his aspirations for muni?
cipal honors. Another possible candidate ls
Dr. Rabert Lebby, the health officer of the
port, and the city registrar under the Pills?
bury administration. The name of Mr. Geo.
I. Cunningham has also been mentioned for I
this position, but it ls now said, per contra,
that be Is not, and ta at be does not desire to
be a candidate tor tbe office.
For members o? the City Council, of whom
there are eighteen to be elected, there are at
least three times that number of candidates
already talked of In Republican circles. The
names ol the more prominent of these are as
follows :
For Ward 1-Representative J. F. Greene,
ex-Coroner Wm. N. Tatt, and Wm. Parker, a j
colored tinsmith, doing business in Tradd
For Ward 2-Jacob Willimar), the preBentl
3lerk ol court, and Trial Justice Wm. McKIn* I
lay and Registrar Wm. J. McKinlay, Jr.
For Ward 3-Alderman Garrett, Bruce How?
ard, Garrett Burns, James Cosgrove, A. I
Ootbage, W. J. Brodie and A. B. Mitchell.
For Ward 4-County Commissioner Cue-j
ningham and Dr. Lebby are both said to be
illernalive candidates tor tbe Council, In case
)f failure in the Domination for mayor. Sheriff
J. C. Bowen ls also said to be a prospective I
jandldate, and be is reported to say there ls
no law against bia holding both the Offices of I
merin and alderman, or even of sheriff and I
II ay or, lt he wants to. The other candidates I
n this ward are J. H. Albers, Wm. G. Fields, I
Alderman Geo. A. Glover and Colonel P.. W.
For Ward 6 -Alderman P. Moran, W. A. [
Jranr, Robert Morrison and W. H. Thompson, j
For Ward 6-George Shrewsbury, James N.
Elayne, Dr. B. A. Baseman, (if the Postofflce I
ihould happen aller all lo slip through his fin- I
tero) and Dr. M. H. Collin'.
For Ward 8 -Louis Dunneman, T. A. Davis
ind N. T. Spencer.
The chairman ot ihe Republican city central I
jommlttee for ihe last campaign ls Trial Jus
dee R. B. Anson, and lt will therefore be bis
inly to call un election for members of a new j
?tty central committee, who will then arrange
or ibe primaries and the nominating con ven
don. It ls said that on this occasion all tbe I
oast schisms In Ihe Radical ranks are tobe
9uried tor the time being, and a desperate
agra ls to be made against their common eme
my, the Conservatives.
Ii will be observed lhat some of ihe candi
dates spoken of are gentlemen who are not
known to be util lated with the Republican
pari y, but we give their Dames inasmuch aa

The Condolence Of Royalty-England's I
Queen at Chlselhurst.
[From the London Daily Telegraph ]
Yesterday the Queen, accompanied by the
Princess Beatrice, and attended by Lady I
Cbutchill and Colonel Ashley Maude, paid a I
visit to the Empress Eugenio, at Cbisolburst. I
The Queen bas, it is koowa, long contemplated I
i pomonal expression ot condolence with tbe I
Empress in her sorrow; and the feeling which
her Majesty bas boen desirous of placing on
record, with respect to ber faithful ally, the
Emperor Napoleon III. has been also indicated
by the offering which she baa mado of a tomb,
to be placed within a chanel whio'.i the Em
press is abont to raise for tho reception of the
Imperial romains. Her Majesty, the Princess I
Beatrice and suite lef ? Windsor Castle yester
Jay morning shortly after 10 o'clock, and driv- I
i Dg to the station ot the Southwestern Bail way I
Uompany, entered the special train which was I
to convey them to Cbieelburst. Chiselharat I
station was reached by 11,20, and on the plat-1
[bim were Lord aud Lady Sydney, whose resi
den co woe in the neighborhood. By them ber
Majesty was received o t alighting, and was I
conducted to one of the state carriages, which
had boen aent down from Loudon. Tue car-1
nage, drawn by four borses and preceded bv I
DUtnders, was driven at once to tho little chureb I
ir St. Mary, about half a mile beyond Camden I
Placs. Tbere are few, if any, persons who do I
sot know, from written or spoken descriptions,

anes by Cbieelnurst Common, the Queen re- I
main?d some time before the Emperor's tomb. I
The wreath a ore thero, which bad been heaped I
a ead profusion when the coffin was first oar
tied m tho diminutive chapel. Among those I
trreat h s the Queen noticed tbe mortuary tri- I
butes which she herself, her sons and her
lang liters had sent. Leaving the tomb after
i wbile, her Majesty was led by Mr. Goddird,
tho priest, to an outer site very near the church,
where is to be erected by the Empress and I
abdicated to the Virgin, that lillie obapel with- I
in which will be placed the tomb of Scotch gran?
ite, offered by the Queen. Tbis newly-plauned
sarcophagus! whicu is already in conrea or con?
struction, will resemble io form and fashion
bhat which hold the remains of the Deche?s of
Kent. Having surveyed the ground of the in?
tended obapei, ber Majesty quitted the small,
neatly-kepl cemetery ot tit. Mary's Church, and
re-eotenng the carriage, was conveyed to Cam?
ion Place. On Ihe steps of the en1 rance porch
tho Queen was received by tbe Empress and
JCT eon. That the meeting was one, indeed,
af a most sympathetic kind may well be imag
med. Their Majesties retired together to the
private apartments of the Empress, while the
Prince Napoleon, the Pnncjss B.atrice, aDd
the Princess'Murat remained in the salon de
reception. The time passed by the Quoin and
limpress in private conversation was nearly

her Majesty a lew of tboae devoted fol owen of

Under me title of Hie Housewife's Horror,
the London Weekly papers bate lately dis?
cussed pretty freely ciubllie, and Its bearings '
upon that domestic biles which we bave been
led to think was one of England's safest bul?
warks of civiliz nion and religion. O'ub-liie
lhere belongs io every grade ol society; bot
with us, lt ls bit In its Booage, and bas
scarcely developed Influences enough of any
sort for us to determine whether lt will prove
in our laxer, freer, but purer social atmosphere
as destructive to tbe family as Its English
enemies assert, Outside of half a dozen of
tbe large cities lu ibis country, oiabs are un
known. There ls a vague f?minine prejudice '
against them which deters men lo smaller
towns irom forming them. A man alone may
have courage to rick life io assault a parapet,
or a tyranny; but be must have good backing
ere be faces me cold stare ot petticoated re?
spectability abroad, and tearful silence from
the wronged domestic element at home. That
young men should associate themselves to?
gether for purely literary or scientific pur?
poses, is rational enough, In a woman's Judg?
ment, and here and' there a wife may be
found willing that ber husband should join
them, and have at least one pursuit or which
she has no knowledge, and ride a hobby
which will not bear a pillion behind. But
that men, especially married men, should
combine io furnish for themselves a place of
meeting which shall offer al once gratification
lor their literary, artistic, or social needs, and
subserve also toe purposes of a home, is an
infringement on the rights ot the famiy which
no woman with a grain of spirit will endure.
What does lt matter, at the close ol ina"
day's work In counting-room or office, that
tbe club offers luxurious chairs and surround-,
inge, a dellclously-cooked dinner, with Smith's
wit and Jones's wisdom to aid Ita digestion,
and, above all, quiet, to enjoy his posi-pran
dlal cigar; while at home lhere are soiled
napkins, tougn mutton, and noisy children,
aud lor entertainment his wife's gossip ot
kitchen delinquents or Mrs. Smith's last ball ?
True, he married for better or lor worse; but
must it be all worse aad never better ? Trae
again, his wife must endure tough mutton,:
children and Biddy ad nauseam; tor her there
la no inviting door of escape by club er else?
where. That Is her share of the argument;
sharp and heavy enough to keep'
clubs and their temotatlona, as we said,
out of tbe social lite of oar villages
and towos, which Is notably tinder
feminine control. In New York or-any large
city tbe position of tbe parlies ls different.
Any woman ot intelligence can appreciate the
raison d'etre of clubs nere, for not only bach-,
eiors, but married men. lt is true tbat 1( tbe
husband of a fashionable woman have money
enough (there, lo begin with, Is the sin laid
promptly at bis own door,) be need not tte
annoyed with ill-cooked dinners or noisy chil?
dren, lu five cases out of ten in New York
he leaves his office to find both not la a home,
but in a hotel or a boarding-house, where,
children can be put out ot sight, and lhe cook
ought to be on a par with that ol the clu>.'
But man ls gregarious ; lt Is lo satisfy bia need
of society, notdiuoers, be knocks for admis?
sion at tbe door of the Century, the Union,
or the Knickerbocker. His wife, to be snre,
offers him society according to the ideas
of herself and her kind; night after night
you may see him in full drees, fat, heavy,
dull-eyed, smiling Inanely on the back
chairs in an opera-box, or Jammed in the
drawing-room doors at a ball while the young
people waltz ?nd shove past him, and tramp,
un bis toes. Young Parks and his eel, none
ot them past nineteen, bustle him out ol the'
way with their giggling sweethearts In talla'
and roses. He begins to leel himself a block
-one of the impediments In the way ot the
world. Is this all o? intercourse be is to bave
with his kind ? Is this the blghest mental en?
joyment which American society can offer
ulm-to be poked In the ribs by Parke's pro?
truding elbows, lo lisien to bis partner's Inani?
ties, or io guzzle champagne ?nd ball-warm
terrupij at midnight, when he wonid rather
bu in bed ? What wonder lt be flies for t^ety
and succor to the ease and quiet and luxury
ol his club-room, wbere be can choose com?
panions after bis kind - grave, wise or witty
aud where neiiber tulle nor roses, nor the
sound ol a giggle, shall ever enter to make
him afraid.
"Each after his kind." Our fashionable
women seem to have accepted the wisdom of
this plan, they allow tbeir husbands to sub?
stitute club for old-fashioned borne life, and
with their own ..receptions," .'luncheons,''
Ac, form feminine alliances as pleasant, we
hope, as profitable. Tt.e appliances which
money turulsbes for making Hie easy now-a
days serve to slide all such old-time weights
as housekeeping, cooking and Biddies, en well
as noisy children, off ihe shoulders of a lady of
ton. The story goes tbat one of them meet
lug a French bonne and her charge the other
day ut her own door, exclaimed to ber com?
panion on the picturesqueness ot the tarn*
out, both baoy and nurse, and then bridging
her nose wi lt her eye-glasses cried, ''But,
surety, you are the woman whom I hired last
summer lo take charge of my Lucille? And
this Is my little angel I How she grows I" Tbe
mother of ibe New York Gracchi keeps ber
Jewels In a fourth story nursery, and shows
them to ber friends and herself only on rare
occasions, and when In very lull dress indeed;
Her husband fiads his home at bis club, and
sue hers elsewhere; but they are upon most
friendly terms usually, and exchange opin?
ions on all subjects with ibe almost good
temper and courtesy when they meet.
Seriously, there ls little hope, if lt even be
desirable, that the purely domestic life of tbe
couotry and inland towns should ever be poe*
slble lu the hurried, breatblesa routine of the
city. A cultured man requires in bis off
hours irom work some other mental pabulum
lhan housekeeping troubles or gossip, be wants
glimpses of art, literature, suggestive and
stimulating society; lt ls actually the grist for
next day's mill to grind. Is lt not possible fox
a woman to furnish her husband this, together
with ibe charm and love of bis home ? (dome
