A Woman's Doom. : Within a dreary, narrow room That looks npon a noisome street, Half fainting with the stifling heat A starving girl works out her doom. Yet not the less in God's sweet air The little birds Biug free of care, And hawthorns blossom everywhere. Swift, ceaseless toil scarce winuetlt bread; From early dawn till twilight falls, Shut in hetween four ugly walls, And all the while in some still place, Whore intertwining boughs embrace, The blackbirds build; time flies apace. With envy of the folks who die, Who may at last their leisure take. Whose longed-for sleep none roughly wake, Tired hands the restless needle ply. But far and wide in meadows green The golden buttercups are seen, And reddened sorrel nods between. Too pure and proud to soil her soul; Or stoop to basely gotten gain, By days of changeless want aod The seamstress earns a prisoner's dole. While iu tUo peaceful holds the sheep Feed uuiet, and thro' heaven's blue deep t lie kilo nt cloud-wmgs stainless sweep. And if she be alive or dead That weary woman scarcely knows, But back and forth her needle goes In tune with throbbing heart and head. Lo, when the leaning alders part, White-blossomed swallows, blithe of heart. Above still water skim and dur O God in heaven ! Shall I, wno share That dying fciu.u,s womanhood, Tas(e summer's bounteous t'likiujdencd by her weight of care ? The white moon-daisies star the grass, The lengthening shadows o'er them The meadow pool is smooth as glass. A. Matheson, in McMillan's. Miajune. A Woman's Doom. A Receipt to Make Pretty Women. From a New York letter to j Washington Critic we take the lowing : a , lo at " A celebrated beauty, whose com plexion at sixty was fresher that of our women at thirty, told her secret this summer, and it divided into two parts ( Jim never used, wash Waj or towel on f.ic, but washed it with her hands, rinsing it ofT with a soft sponge. used e'ear water in the morning, white castile soap or very warm ter at night, and, after drying it on soft towel, sho would take a flesh brush and rub her cheeks, chin forehead. Second, if she was going to bt up late at night, she always slept as many hours in the day as she pected to be awake beyond the usual time. She finished her little sermon on beauty preservation by saying: " Soft water and sound sleep off wrinkles and spots, and give more attention to than they do, for With tte coming of t. crows' feet la tb going ol tho tjeatu. it.'

The hog men have been very busy during the past week. The increase m the price has been sufficient to warrant farmers in selling, and the hogs have !een rolling in.

A Lay Lecture on the Verb to Lie pas the me was She her She but wa a and The verb to lie, to recline, is in peril. A late official document uses lay " for its present tense; an edi- torial article in the Chicago Tribune u . 1 ami has " money laying at interest, and among peop'e of average education and intelligence there exists an in-1 extrirable confusion as to the use of , . i-; .(, lam, had lam, having bun, anil tne . ,-ju l.'l corresponding forms to laid, had laid, and having laid of the verb to lay.; ,. , b. r . . The learned court was unfortunate when it declared, in rebuking an un- grammatical attorney, that courts and bens set; but it s true tnat, wnne hens lay eggs, and have laid eggs, and are laying eggs, men lie clown, and have lain down, and are lying down. It is equally true, too, that while we must say " the hen laid an ectr." we absolutely must not say "the man laid down." The test the verb is whether it can grammatic ally take lubstantive alter it as abject, to lay being transitive, to intransitive.
