“There is a vision in the heart of each
Of justice, mercy, wisdom, tenderness
To wrong and pain, and knowledge of
its cure—
And these embodied in u woman’s
—Robert Rrovming.
I It is not enough to love, nor even
! to understand each other. You
must give back something in return
for what is given, sparkle for spark
I le, thought for thought. On this
i account, so far as nationality goes,
I should prefer the French woman
to all others in the world.
The German woman is all love
and gentleness, full of child-like pu
ritv, which transport one to Para
dise. The English woman, chaste,
exclusive, thoughtful, and absorbed
in her home affections, so loyal, so
firm, and so gentle, is the ideal of a
wife. The passion of the Spaniard
bites deep into the heart; and the
Italian, in her beauty and softness,
her warm imagination often with
her touching frankness, renders re
sistance impossible, and you are en
raptured, conquered.
However,if you desire a wife whose
soul shall respond to your own by
the sympathy of intellect as well as
love—who shall renew your heart
by a charming vivacity and gayety,
a helping wit, womanly words or
birdlike song—you must choose a
Generally speaking, the young
French girl has neither the dazzling
complexion, nor the visible purity,
the touching and virginal charm, of
j the German girl. The French wom
an is wonderfully beautified by mar
riage, while Northern virgin loses
by it, and often fades. You risk
very little in marrying a plain wom
an in France. She is most frequent
ly so simply for want of love.
When she is loved,she becomes quite
another person; you would scarcely
| recognize her.
Woman takes hardly any interest
in the vain discussions which are
carried on in her name at the pres
ent day. She troubles herself very
little about the famous inconsistent
debate, whether she is superior or
I inferior to man. The theory of the
case is, with her, quite a secondary
consideration. Wherever she proves
herself thoughtful, clever, and pru
dent, there she is mistress; she
manages the household, directs the
business, keeps the money, arranges
V., V. J vu.u&.
Will she obey ? At this question
you fancy she will resist. Not at
all; she merely laughs and shakes
her head. She knows perfectly, in
her own heart, that the better she
obeys the surer she is to govern.
What is it after all, that woman
desires most profundly ? What is
her secret wish—the indistinct in
stinctive thought that follows her,
without her being able to account
for it, into all places and at all
times—the thought which fully ex
plains her apparent contradictions,
her prudence and her folly, her fidel
ity and her inconstancy ?
She wishes to be loved, without
doubt; but that answer does not by
any means fathom the uttermost
depths of her desires.
Then she desires most to reign at i
home, to be mistress of the house,
mistress by her fireside, at her ta
ble, in all her little world. “This,”
says the ancient Persian, “is what ;
pleases woman above every other ,
thing.” That, to be sure, is true, j
but it may l>e explained by a deep- '
er sentiment, to which the proceed
ing considerations are in a great
measure related.
The secret, essential, capital, and
fundamental idea is, that every
woman feels herself to be a power
ful centre of love and attraction,
around which everything should re- j
volve. She wants man to envelop j
her with an insatiable desire—a j
never ending curiosity. She has a '
confused consciousness that her na- j
ture affords an infinity ofdiscovery;
that she possesses the jiowerof folly
satisfying the persevering love which
would pursue this endless search—
that she would surprise it forever by
a thousand visions of grace and
Woman, in all history, is the mor
tal enemy of polyagmy. She wishes
for the love of one only; but it must1
be real love—an eager, restless pas
sion, which, like a flame, burns on
and must burn on.
Hence come the deplorable at
tempts of a creature naturally very
faithful, and who would hare always
remained so. to find elsewhere a
soul which desires to know more'of
her own, to dive deeper into it and
discover a greater happiness.
A young and thoughtful lady
(Madame Gasparin) has had the
courage to touch upon this delicate
point, and reveal a womans secret:
“The object of marriage is mar
riage. Conjugal love requires more
self-sacrifice, more virtue, than ma
ternal love.”
This is woman’s thought, divest
ed of all hypocrisy, to be the wife
and companion of man.
We mast not let the present state
of morals, the public vertigo, and
unchecked whirlwind of license
which we have now before our eves,
deceive us as to the essence of
things; we must not stop at certain
women, or classes, or times. We
must look at the eternal woman. In
all history she is the element of sta
bility. Common sense sufficiently
explains the reason of this. It is
not only because she is the mother,
the embodiment of the family and
the household, but because she
brings into the co-partnership a dis
proportionate share, which becomes
enormous when compared to that of
the man. She enters into it entire
ly, and without the possibility of
withdrawal. The simplest one
among them fully understands that
any change is to her disadvantage,
that in changing she rapidly lowers
When the parts are transposed,
when the woman grows fickle and
calls for change, which is her degra
dation and her ruin,we must consider
it a case of disordered mind, a hid
eous symptom of misery and de
spair. This perversion of woman’s
nature condemns her less than it
does him who causes the evil—for
the crime is really man’s.
The astonishing aspect of rest
lessness and agitation which we now
behold in their mania for dress, re
sults less frcm real frivolity than
from rivalry and vanity; frequent
ly also from chagrin at their youth
and beauty slipping away, and their
consequent desire to renovate them
selves every morning.
The surprising changes of deco
ration are very frequently the ca
prices of an ailing heart, which
wants to retain a love, and finds it
difficult to do so. Some of the most
faithful among them, in order to re
tain their lovers, work incessantly
at disguising and varying themselv
es. They would do precisely the
same in the midst ot the greatest
solitude, in a desert, or an Alpine
hut, if they lived there with “him.”
Do they emplo3r the right means to
attain their end ? I think not.
The impressions received upon the
heart are rather unsettled than
strengthened by this continual
Dress is a great symbol. There
should be some novelty, but nothing
violent; above all, never so complete
a novelty 5s to cause love to lose its
reckoning. A slight accessory to
the costume gracefully varies it, and
suffices for all change. A flower
more or less, a ribbon, a bit of lace,
a mere nothing, often enchants us,
and the whole portrait becomes
transfigured. This changeless
change goes to the heart and silent
ly says: “Always different, and al
ways the same.”
The follies and passing epidem
ics of luxury and fashion do not all,
so far as we are concerned, affect
what we have, in the universality of
time and place, set down as the es
sential law of woman’s heart, and
the depths of her nature.
What she wants is not love mere
ly, but the fixity, the passionate
perseverance, the unlimited eager
ness and curiosit)', the endless inten
sity of love.
She wants this and she has a right
to it; for to such ardent researches
she could reply for ever, with the
fresh and inexhaustible (improvisa
tion) of unlooked for happiness.
To become beautiful, and through
love—what happiness. I dare not
attempt to describe to you the ex
cess of her gratitude. To be beau
tiful is heaven; and to women, it is
everything. If she but knew that it
is to you she owes so great an ad
vantage, she will readily yield on
every other point; she will be de
lighted to feel that you are the mas
ter; she will like you to decide ev
erything, and in general, to save her
the trouble of having a will of her
She will cheerfully grant, what is
the truth, that you are her guardian
angel; that your experience of the
world has taught you a thousand
things from which you can preserve
her, a thousand dangers to w hich
her youth and the semi-captivity of
her girlhood would have blinded her,
and into which, most likely, she
would have rushed headlong.
The mere fact of having an occu
pation, a specialty, is a great advan
tage to the man. He must have
passed through a previous course of
moral gymnastics, must have over
come the stiffness of his joints, bro
ken, trained, and strengthened his
active faculties. It is in conquer
ing a trade that we conquer our
selves. Herein we especially learn
that, to Bueeeed,to bring any under
taking to an end, perseverance is re
quired; and not only that, but con
scientiousness. a firm desire to do
right, and an incalculable precision.
Women would be capable enough of
this precision, yet they seldom pos
sess it, because their wills are not
strong enough.
Young man, you wish to be loved,
do you not? Well! for that you
must be « n:an. I mean that, above
the necessary devotion to the details
of business, you must preserve a
reverence for humanity’ at large, the
love of all. It is thus that you will
be worthy of being loved yourself—
great, noble, and having power over
the woman, who is herself but lore
and life.
If you are studying law, for ex
ample, go to the church of nature; I
mean to the Jardin des Plantes.
Let your friend, the young medi
cal student, take you to the dissect
ing table, and teach you what death
And if you are a physician, pause
occasionally in your career. You
are seeing too much pain. Learn
the social cause of it. Inform your
self, in your spare moments, of that
justice which would cure by the dif
fusion of happiness.
On this ground, my friend, you
are sure to be understood, for your
wife is all pity, affection, and trust
And what delight does she take
in believing yon when yon come to
her with your heart full of so many
new, re freshing,and touching truths.
Marriage is a very unequal con
tract, and neither the laws of the
Church (Roman Catholic) nor the
laws of the State hare yet seriously
attempted to modify its nature.
Both in reality, are very hard
upon woman.
The church is openly against her,
owing her a grudge for the sin of
Eve. It considers her a temptation
incarnate, and closely in league with
the devil. It permits marriage,
though it prefers celibacy.
The civil law is not less harsh. It
declares woman to be a minor all
her life long, and pronounces upon
her an eternal interdiction. Man is
constituted her guaidian when it
comes to the crimes she may com
mit, the penalties that she may en
dure, she is treated as a perfectly
responsible person, of full age, and
dealt with very severely.
Young man, read this alone, and
not with that thoughtless comrade
whom I see behind you, mocking
over your shoulder. If you read
alone, you will read to some purpose.
You will feel the responses of your
own heart. And the holiness of
Nature will touch you.
This book treats of religion, of
truth, and of purity. If you find it
a subject of amusement and ridicule,
I do not doubt that you would laugh
over your mother’s coffin.
In marriage your happiness is im
mense, but how serious also!
Respect it. Consider the sacred
gravity of the adoption you are
about to make, the infinite love that
is expected of you by her who comes
to you alone, and with boundless

Official Analysis of Baking Powdtrs—
Adulterations in Cream of Tartar.
Under the direction of the New
York State Board of Health, eighty
four different kinds of baking pow
ders, embracing all the brands that
could be found for sale in the State,
were submitted to examination and
analysis by Prof. C. F. Chandler, a
member of the State Board and pres
ident of the New City Board of
Health, assisted by Prof. Edward
G. Lore, the well-known United
States Government chemist.
The official report shows that a
large number of the powders exam
ined were found to contain alnm or
lime; many of them to snch an ex
tent as to render them seriously ob
jectionable for use in the prepara
tion of human food.
Alum was found in twenty-nine
| sampies. This drag is employed in
I baking powders to cheapen their

tar of commerce used in their manu
facture. Such cream of tartar was
also analyzed and found to contain
! lime and other imparities; in some
j samples to the extent of 93 per cent
i of their entire weight
All the baking powders of the mar
ket, with the single exception of
i ‘Royal” (not including the alnm and
phosphate powders, which have not
the rirtne of erea an impure cream
of tartar), are made from the adul
terated cream of tartar of commerce,
afld consequently contain lime to a
corresponding extent
The only baking powder jet found
by chemical analysis to be entirely
free from lime and absolutely pore
it the “Royal.” This perfect purity
results from the exclusive use of
cream of tartar specially refined and
prepared by patent processes which
totally remove the tartrate of lime
and other impurities. The cost of
this chemically pure cream of tar
tar is much greater than any other,
and on account of this greater cost
is used in no baking powder but the
Prof. Love, who made the analy
sis of baking powders for the New
York State Board of Health, as well
as for the Government, says of the
purity and wholesomeness of the
“I find the Royal Baking Powder
composed of pure and wholesome in
gredients. It is a cream of tartar
powder of a high degree of merit,
and does not contain either alum or
phosphates or other injurious sub
stance. E. G. Love, Ph. D.”
It is highly satisfactory to the
housekeepers of this vicinity, where
the Royal Baking Powder is in gen
eral use, that the investigations by
the analysts in Massachusetts, New
York, and Ohio, the only States that
have thus far taken action upon this
important subject, agree in classing
it as the purest and most efficient
baking powder in the market.
It is becoming enough of a prac
tice to warrant chronicling that the
extreme belies of New York society,
those who are never content unless
they are doing something that is far
in advance of the generality of rich
young women, are now learning and
practising the art of posing at all
times. A class in gymnastics has
about twenty-five pupils, and the os
tensible training received from their
master is in the use of dumb bells
and Indian clubs, but once a week
he gives instruction to them in
poses. He tells them that they
should acquire the knAck of never
taking awkward positions, whether
walking, sitting, or king. He as
sures them that if they learn thor
oughly bow to do it they will even
tually take graceful attitudes un
consciously, and so he puts them
through a great variety of postures.
He shows them how to take a seat in
a chair or rise from it; how to half
recline on a sofa, or lie flat on a
couch; and he even gives ihem in
structions bow to save themselves
from awkwardness when they fall.
•*It is not the bruise or sprain that
hurts a woman when she sprawls in
the street,” he said, “half so much
as the hurt to her pride. If she
knows that the witnesses of her mis
step are struck by a picturesque suc
cession of pretty poses as she drops
from the perpendicular to the hori
zontal, she can stand all the damage
with equanimity,”
Therefore one of the exercises
which he prescribes for his young la
dies is to fall on mattresses in a row.
They are made to drop forward, back
ward, and sidewise, until they are
able to go down in any direction in
a sightly manner.
