The snow storm and b'.cak coll
wiody weuiLer we have just passed
through, have made the ladies feel
like drawing their winter wraps
more closely, and tleaving the -discussion
of spring fashions for some
day far in the future. Neverthe
less, with the bright warm days they
will come out like so many Gutter
fiie3, to batik in the sunshine and
balm- air, not to show their finery,
of course, but they will be looking
out for new finery and fashions.
Fashion reminds one very much of
the old mill-horse that went round
and round in a circle, never getting
out of his beaten track. It lays oil
one style for another, only to lay
this off for the other, after a few
months. Ovr-skirts and polonaises
have chased each other this way
for so long that we expect nothing
else. Cream is still spoken of as
the prevailing color; a lady will
hardly be considered dressed unless
Bhe have a little of this color about
her, if not a great deal. In fact
some of them are becoming so las
tidious, that they refuse to drink
the milk now offered in market be
cause it i3 of a blue tinge. Cos
tumes are still to be made of plain,
striped and plaid goods; the plain
to form the lower skirt, the plaid
or striped the upper part of the
dress. Cream colored chip bonnets
prevail, but black chip and lace
bonnets will still be worn. Cream
color is the favorite shade for ties,
and appear in crepe lisse, batiste.
Brussels net and cashmere lace.
For young girls are imitated ties
of white muslin, finished on the
edge with needle work scollops, and
ornamented with the initials of the
young lady. Some ties have cardi
nal, blue, scarlet or rose, mingled
with the cream. Linen collars are
of the English shape, made very
high. Seal brown undressed kid
gloves will be very stylish for travel
ing. These undressed gloves will
be first choice with fashiouable la
dies. Lisle-thead and silk gloves
will also be used in summer.
Perhaps you don't know them by
that name; well, then, suggest a bet
ter. The are the salt of our soci
ety, in one sense girls of good
micds, minds that will be good if
they survive the giggling age, girls,
of good families, well dressed, po
lite and fine looking, but possessed
of the insane idea that they must
laugh upon all occasions, whether
there is anything to warrant it or
not, else they are not jolly, gay girls
and lively compaoy. A bevy of
them came into the Public Library
the other day; one had just had an
adventure which was to be recited;
she dropped into a chair, bent over
and held her sides and they all
chorused in. They had not heard it
yet, but, of course, it would be aw
ful funny when it was told.
She was coming up K. street when
she stepped on a rotten plank te,
he, he chorus, te, he, he, and down
she went. O dear, te, he, he, and
her foot got tangled full chorus
te, he, he, he, and a man came along
with a horrid check 6hirt on, he, he,
he big checks perfectly horrid :
he, he, and helped her up, ha, he,
he, ad libitum, all together. Now I
did not make this up, not a bit of
it. They were splendid girls I
speak sincerely but what an exhi
bition ! I saw an old gray-beard
take a book he didn't want and hur
ry away. Then another girf took
it up and said her book was so com
ical she just howled over it ha, he,
he they must all read it, they1
would laugh so, as if that was the
chief end and aim of a girl's exis
tence. When a man is amused he laughs
with gusto, and then straightens
his face till next time, and it has
some meaning, but the perpetual
grin orgigle is detestable.
At a lecture recently 1 saw six
young ladies seemingly convulsed
with laughter for live uiinutes or
more at the accidental dropping of
a paper of candles over the floor.
I think I can go into a social par
lor and select the groups of married
ladies from those of the girls, not
by their faces or their dress, but by
the amount of giggling done; matri
mouy suddues the snicker.
Now we are not an old maid with
corkscrew curls and vinegar lips
and nose out of joint, and we do
uot speak for sulkiness; but we
leave it to the Fkk Press or any
othe, philosopher if there isn't a
call for reform in this branch of
young lady behavior. E. C. T.
Slang Talk by Young: Ladies.
Young ladies have but little idea
of the imjioliteness and bad effect
of the slang phrases often used in
so-called polite society. An ex
change says, in a word of advice to
any wht are partially or wholly ad
dicted to it:
"You have no idea how it sounds
to the cars unused or avcrsed to it,
to hear a young lady say, when she
is asked if she will go with 3 011 to
some place, 'Not much!' or if re
quested to do something she does
uot wish to, to hear her say, 'Can't
"Not long ago I heard a joung
Miss, who is educated and accom
plished, in speaking of a young
man, sa- she intended to 'go for
him!' And, when her sister asked
her assistance at some work, she
answered, 'Not for Joe!'
"Now, j'oung ladies of uuexception
able character and really good edu
cation, fall into this habit, thinking
it shows smartness to answer back
in slang phrases; and they soon
slip flippantly from their tongues
with a. saucy pertnessthat is neither
lady-like or becoming. -'I bet,' or
'3 0U bet,' is bad enough among men
who are trading horses or land; but
the contrast is startling and posi
tively shocking to hear these words
issue from the lips of a young lady.
They seem at once to surround her
with the rougher association of
men's daily life, and bring her down
from the pedestal of purity to their
cwn coarse level."
A Perfect Marriage.
A perfect and complete marriage,
says Theodote Parker, i3 perhaps
as rare as perfect personal beauty.
Men and women are married frac
tionally, now a small fraction, then
a large fraction. Very few are
married total'', and the' are only
after some forty or fifty years of
gradual approach and experiment.
Such a long and sweet fruit is a
complete marriage that it needs a
very longer summer to ripen in, and
then a long winter to mellow and
season in. But a real happy mar
riage of love and judgement be
tween a noble man and woman is
one of the things so very handsome,
that if the sun were, as a Greek
poet fabled, a god, he might stop
the world in order to feast his e3es
with such a spetacle.
The Aberdeen (Miss.) Examiner
says that kerosene oil is an effective
antidote for the bite of a snake,
when applied externally. It says
that a little child of Mr. C. M. Jones
was bitten by a high-land moccasin,
and perfect relief and cure obtained
by the application of this oil. It fur
ther sa-s that a valuable dog was
bitten by a "cotton mouth," and
was in a dying condition when the
first external application of the
oil was made, but obtained instant
relief, and was up and running
about in two or three hours.
George Francis Train is a bank

debts being one hundred million
dollars. He has no personal prop

His wife has an income of her own.
A. A. Freeman, late Radical can
didate for Governor, having pur
chased the material of the Browns
ville Bee olllce, expects shortly
to commence the publication in
Brownsville of a Radical paper, to
be called the "Free Press."
A New Orleans exchange says that
by actual experiment the difference
in the expenses of gas and coal oil
is about one-eighteenth in favor of
the latter, but in that city fty cents
worth of coal oil will last as long as
S9 worth of eas.
Although the magnolia very rare
lv is in bloom at this season of the
year, the Louisiana papers report
the tree in some portions of that
State in full bloom, and the fra
grance imparted gives March the
sweetness of May.-
The Radicals are busy vilifying
Tilden, Ileadricks, Thurman and
Pendleton, but so far have' utterly
failed to father upon either of them
anything unworthy of a gentleman.
Their honesty and integrity are
ahove the reach of Radical malice.
It is an interesting coincidence
that the resolutions impeaching
Belknap weie adopted on the anni
versary of the adoption of articles
of impeachment of Andrew John
son in the same hall.
If Belknap deserves impeachment
for selling a post-tradership for $10,
000, what does Grant deserve for
selling the collectorship of New
York to Tom Murphy for a $40,000

The followin? story was written by a

One pleasant night in August
Daisy Mercer was slowly prome
nading the beach at Newport.
Her lovely golden hair was wound
into a simple coil and confined by
an exquisite shell comb at the back
of her perfectly shaped little head.
This simple style was ver' becom
ing to her, she was so geutle and
innocent. Her beautiful, dark,
brown eyes were filled with unshed
tears; and her delicate oval face
looked ver' sad in the moonlight.
Her figure was small and every
lutvctucuv was 01 perieci grave.
She was beautiful in a very fragile
way; already the hectic flusn, that
told too plainly of consumption,
burned on her cheeks. The sweet
3'oung life was fast waning. The
moon glanced down upon her with
compassion, for she was the bride
of a month and already a neglected
Fred Mercer, the handsome young
millionaire, soon learned to neglect
his wife, because she did not dress
elegantly like he wished her to.
Flowers ami pearls were the onl3'
ornaments she ever wore. His bri
dal present had been a full set of
diamonds, which she had never
worn, because she had always de
tested diamonds and thought that
she was too young (being only six
teen) to wear them.
Immeuiately after the marriage
Fred took his bride to Newport,
where, although there had been a
seiies of grand balls, she had only
attended two. To the first she
wore blue silk and pearls; to the
second white swiss with no orna
ments except white rosebuds and
green leaves. The latter toilet so
enraged her husband that he for
bade her attending any more. When
in company he treated her with
courtesy, but day after day he went
on pleasant excursions with the gay
belles and beaux, and never asked
her to join him. It greatly wounded
the heart of the gentle young wite
to be treated so coldl-. She was
th- only daughter of loving parents
and had always .been caressed and
worshipped by them and two fond,
doting brothers, who thought there
was no human being who could in
anT way be compared to "siste
No wonder then that the sweet
young life was already on the bor
der of spirit-land. Yes, she was
dying da by day and the cause was
Daisy spent most of the time in
her own room. Fred's sister, Mrs.
Walton, would often join her, and
would ride or walk with her when
ever she would consent to go out,
which she . seldom did. She could
not bear to be seen often, and never
with Fred. She remained most, of
the time in her own room. She
would practice her music, read or
embroider to while away the hours,
which' were ver long and tedious
Antoinette Walton was a stately
brunette, tall and handsome. She
resembled Fred very much, being
proud and haut like him. She
loved Daisy dearly, and often scold
ed Fred for treating her so coldly,
but Daisy herself never complained.
The night on which our story
opens witnesses the grandest ball
of the season. While Fred is with
the gav throng Daisy is on the
"Oh, Fred, my own love, you do
not know how vou have wounded
this loving heart!" she moaned.
"Daisy!" She ceased her restless
walk and turned, hoping to see her
husband; but no, it was his sister,
Antoinette Walton, in elegant silk
"Oh, Antoinette, how can I live
the few remaining days of m' life

remonstrated, but to no effect. An

work very diligently, and soon had
the pleasure of seeing Daisy look
very lovely in a dress of finest

for the sad expression she would
be a perfect beauty by all true
judges. You are very fortunate in
winning her. Ab, there she is look
ing this way. Go to her immedi
ately and bring her to me. I am
anxious for an introduction to her.
I am already very much in love
Fred felt very proud when he in
troduced Daisy to Miss St. Clair,
who offered her a seat by her side,
which Daisy willingly accepted.
When Miss St. Clair learned that
Daisy did not dance, she canceled
her own engagements and remained
by Daisy's side the entire evening.
When, after spending a pleasant
evening, Daisy arose to go to her
own room, she was seized with a fit
of coughing, and a small stream of
blood oozed from her lips and
trickled down and stained the lovely-
lace dress. She would have
fallen had not Fred caught her in
his arms and bore her to her own
room and laid her upon a couch.
Her comb fell to the floor and her
lovely golden hair streamed over
the pillow in all its luxuriance and
beauty, and her pure, sweet face
looked like that of an angel.
Mr. aud Mrs. Walton soon fol
lowed with a physician, who told
Fred that Daisy had a hemorrhage
of the lungs, that consumption had
for several yeat3 been in her 53 s-
tem, but never would have showed
itself so earlv had not some great
sorrow been ou her mind and hast
ened the fatal disease. He also said
that he did not think she could
Oh, with what anguish and re
morse did Fred gaze upon his lovely
3'oung wife! He prayed that she
might be spared to say that she for
gave him, if no longer.
"fred, said Antoinette, "she is
dying, and you are the cause of it.
Our darling might have lived sev
eral years if you had not been so
cruel to her."
"Ah. ves, sister, I know it now
when it is too late."
At last the blood ceased to flow
and left her deathly pale.
"Antoinette," said Fred, "please
leave me alone with Daisy a few
When all had left the room Fred
approached Daisy, and kneeling by
her side, and clasping both of her
little delicate hands with one of his
own, he begged her to forgive him.
"Arise, Fred, you are freely for
given." "Oh, Daisy, my darling, you are
so sweet and good! It is very hard
for me to have to lose you when I
have just learned how to appreciate
"It is God's will; he knows best.
I know I shall be very happy. I
have spent most of my time for the
past two weeks in preparing to die.
I know 3-ou have often thought ire
contrar3; but I did not like to
make such a display, because I
knew that my da3-s on earth were
numbered. I would not have dress
ed as I did to-night had it not been
to regain 3-our love, dearest Fred,
before I died."
"In that you have succeeded I
can assure you."
"Thank you, dear Fred. Now
call Antoinette and Mr. Walton, I
wish to speak to them."
They were summoned, and after
bidding them farewell, and blessing
Antoinette for assisting her to .re
gain Fred's leve, she turned to
Fred, with a face radiant with hap
piness, and told him to tell her fa
ther, mother and brothers to meet
her in Heaven.
"Now, Fred, kiss me, and please
raise me up. Darling, promise me
that 3 0U will meet me in my happy
"Yes, dearest, I will meet 'Ou
With Fred's arms clasping her to
his heart and the words we men
tioned on her lips, she died. The
gentle young sufferer was at rest.
Daisy triumphed, though in death.

Ma Editor: Permit me to make
a few remarks through the columns
of the Citizex pertinent to the, so
called, "ten per cent, law," and the
series of blighting consequences
that proclaim its baneful existence, j
The State of Tennessee with her I
sunny, salubrious climate, great
mineral wealth, fertile soiL, and)
sterling manhood, is not progressing
as rapidly as she might, and may
What impedes her onward march
to the goal of financial greatness?
It is not lack of hopeful heart! and
willing hands to cultivate her fields
and excavate the treasures hidden
in her bosom; but the lack of suffi
cient means to do so effc-ctuail.
It is an undisputed fact that,
since the joint action of a few men
model legislators made ten per
cent, a legal rate of interest in Ten
nessee, the market value of land
throughout the State has been, and
is still, rpidly decreasing. Many-
valuable farm.3 are now left unculti
vated, and others tilled in such a
way that it would seem as if the
prime ooject 01 trie agriculturist
was to exhaust the producing power
of his lands, as soon as possible,
rather than to fill his barns with a
bounteous harvest. That money is
a mighty motive-power without the
aid of which the farmer cannot
carry on his business successful!,
is an axiomatic fact. Now, at the
prices that farm produce brings in
our home markets, it is beyond the
range of possibility for the Tennes
see farmer to pay ten per cent, for
the use of capital and obtain food
and clothing of the commonest kind
for himself and family: he is unable
to do so from the result of his toil,
aid has no chance to obtain money
for a lower rate of interest while
ten per cent, is sanctioned by
law; and what is he to do? Culti
vate a small portion of his farm im
perfectly, and let the remainder lie
waste. When the farmer's prospects
are, from any cause, blighted, the
merchant, mechanic, lawyer, and di
vine, feel, though perhaps in a di
u.inished degree, the evil of the
resultant effect as they are depend
ing upon him for the bread they eat
and for many other thing3 contrib
uting to their enjoyment. Then,
what is the philosophy of keeping
this obnoxious, impolitic "ten per
cent, law" in existence? To enable
a score or two of modern ShylocKs
to completely paralyze the efforts
of the honest, all-sustaining farmer
with their devitalizing exactions?
Oh, for some justice loving Bpirits
like the one that glowed within the
bosom of the "Bard oi Avon, not
to maim those foes of civil progress
with the sword of song, nor to gush
Philippics over their wicked ways
but, by wise legislation, to wrest
from them the power to coerce the
humble, enterprising, sons of toi
in Tennessee. Leo Fro Pateia
