Turkish Wives.
First amoni: the Turkish social tonic
is that, of the harem. The Koran allows)
a .Mussulman to have four wives: and
many iiers-jns have couseiiut-utlv im
agined that polygamy is the rule in
Turkey, whereas it is the execution. A
Mussulman may only bavo as many
wives as ho can keep in comfort ; anil
it is only tho very rich who can uH'oid
bur. '1 ho middle-class Turks have only
one wife apiece ; the men cf,tho lowest
c I. emtio often obliged to remain single
from not having tho means to support ti
consort in the Mvlo which the Moslem
iw enjoins. Nothing can be inure tin-
Tuikisli than the Mormon ideas of accti-
aiulnting a number ol women to live
under oiii)iv)or,iiiarrellingiu the ki'.chou
-.tnd iKirior, and :M.'tiug as iiuui-choki
ihudges fir their husband. The Turkish
wife is not a slave; the chief fault to
llnd with her is that she has too lofty a
.-eiise of her own dignity. An advocate
of female lights would hav nunc difli
cully in peisiiading her that her lot was
pitiable; ihe has never, envied the
emancipation ij Christian women,
whose frco ways shock her; while she
has noticed that they gel much lerw te

lliat wbi.-li is invaiiably oiichsafed to
herself. She veils her face with no

Sunlight, says tiie Ooltugt Hearth, n
wen more necessary to health in sum
mer than In winter, for ono among other
reasons, that disinfectants of all sorts
are more necessary in summer than in
winter. Tho rays of heat quicken the
vital powers, the chemical rays exert
their mysterious nnd otent influence,
and the illuminating rays independently
of the others, as hits been recently
proved by Mr. Crooke lo'the satisfaction
of tho itblcrt scientists, communicate
motion. Tho exhalations from our
bodies in warm weather nro more copi
ous than they nro in cold weather, and
if we shut out tho light from our houses
we removo tho most elllcient of all
agents in destroying what is imwholc
some. The noxious vflporrt which freo
admission of air and light would re
move, nro absorbed by coriiets anil- up
holstery, and become productive of dis
ease. Those who aro accustomed to tho
darkness and dampness of close rooms
may not consciously suffer therefrom,
but that they sustain real injury is evi
dent in their pallid faces, their flaccid
muscles, and nervclcssjiiovements. The
contrast between them and Haute whoso
lives pass in the open air is too evident
to need comment, it may nut be nec
essary to expose during tho day every
room in the house to the direct rays, ol'
tho sun, but there should be frequent
opening of doors and windows, so that
Ihu solar beam may perform its benefi
cent olllce. Jledrooms ami other rooms
in constant use should receive most care
ful attention in this rcsH-ct. Kick rooms
especially require thorough sunning mid
entlhitioii, and if possible, should
always have it southern aspect. More
patients die on the north side of hos
pitals than on the south side ; there aro
more deaths on the shady side ofany
street than on the sunny side. A nota
ble southern housekeeper, oliservlug
htrictly the following rule during the
summer months, kept her house per
fectly sweet and cool and dry from May
to Oi-tobcr: Until ten. o'clock in the
morning all the doors nM windows were
opened wide? then t;.?y were closed
until four in theaflernoon : then onened
again till nightfall. This rate might not
do lor all localities, but such a use of it
is would secure tree access ol light ami
lir to every part of the house at least
nice a day could but be productive of
good results.
