Perhaps there is no moro positive evidence of the change of scntiment in popular oi)itiion tlian the place given to physlcal culturc in the education of wonien. Nor ia this branch of educa tion limitcd to the student. It has aroused, within a short titne, thc enthu siasni of women with gray hcads, who 8cck by wise training under professional tcachers to regain thc lost muscular force that minlsters to the vitulity. A few years ago it was an evidence of plebeian blood to enjoy food or physical motion; to be languid was to mect the ideal of physical pcrfcction for wonien. Now a woman at all in touch with the knowledgc of the times is ashamcd of physical weakness and rccognizcs it as a transgresslon of the laws of licalth. A bright nian, conituenling on the change of standards in the social intcr course amoug young peojilc, said: " Look at thc differencel Whcu I mi a young man, and wished to show al tention to a young lady, I bought her llowers or caudy, and callcd in the evcn ing, when wc talkcd scntiment or sen timeutality, as the nioodof tlie tnoment decidcd. A few rcad books, bttt thc favorite books among young ladies in my day wcre so intcnsely feminine that there was little in common bctween the uicii and wonien in discussing tlictu. Sec niy bov andgirl! Listen to thcm! She can criticise his scrving in tcnnis; beats hini frcquently. If he wants to show liis preference for a young lady, he cithcr urges hcr to be come a nietnber of his tennis or bowl ing club, or nevcr rests till he is a rucmbcr of hers. They look for ward to a Saturday jaunt along the road for five or ten milcs from wcek to weck. She underslands good scoring in a base-ball gaiue. In fact, boys and girls cntcr into each other's lives far more than formerly. If she joins his tennis club, he joins her reading club. They bolh use foils, and she proves no mean opponent. Tlie people who ad mire the old relation between young people are those who know nothing of the present liealthy intcrchange of nien tal and physical culture. I tliink both sexcs gain." It is said by one of the hotel proprietors of a fashionable resort that there are young meu cnough for a game of tennis in the afternoon, but not enough to complete a dancing set in the evening. Yct at a far more re cent date than liraits the memory of the oldest inhabitant this was not the con ditiou of life at a watering-place, when talk filled an afternoon and dancing an evening. More and more does the idea that a strong body is a necessity for a strong mind take hold of the popular opinion. A woman cannot take her share of the world's work or pleasure with an enfeeblcd body; she endeavors always, if wise, to strike a balance that leaves a reserve of physical force at her command; she accepts no theory of how to preserve her vital force for the longesl period,but by study and train ing learns to know herself to know the whole woman, not the third of her uature. The woman of wisdom to-day realies that to know herself she must know how to preserve the shell that so largel v controls thespirit that aniuiates it. L'hrxstiuu Union. other thing that does that the not knowing, except by fldffety spi-rlmentl what is harmony and thc (Dtangiblc grace of relation. T.ikc npon yourself gradually, for the sake of getting them in hand in like manner, if for no other need, all the cares that belong to your own small territory at home. Have your little wash-cloths aud your sponges for bits of cleaning; your furniture brush and your leather duster, and your light little broom and your whisk and pan; your bottle of sweet oiland spirits of turpentine and piccc of flannel to preserve the polish or rcstore the glosg whcre dark wood grows dira or gets ipotted, Find out, by following your surely-growing sense of thoroughness and iiiceness, the bcst and readicst ways of keeping all fresh about you. Invent your own processes; they will come to you. When you make yourself wholly mistress of what you can lcarn and do in your own aparttuents, so that it is easicr and more natural for you to do it than let it alonc, thcn you have lcarncd to kcep a whole house so far as its cleanly ordering is concerned. 8t, fflchoUu, lieaconslleld and the Primrose. A writer in the Spectator says that Lord Beaconifleld't fondness for the primrose originated when be was living in Ilighbury, London. Here he was much attached to a young lady residing in thc same locality, who was the daugh tcr of a gentlcman of good property. At a ball given at this gentlcman's house, the young lady in question wore a wreath of primroscs. A discussiou arosc between Mr, DisraeM and anothcr gcntleman as to whcthcr the primroscs Were real or not. A bet of a pair of L'liivcs was wasmade,and on the young lady being consulted, and the prim rose being examincd, the bet was won by Mr. 1 Msraeli . The priniroses wcre rcal primroscs, and thc young lady gave two or three of lliem to the IUture prime mlnlster, which iie put in bis button-hole and kept, and used to sliow long afterward. Some have tbought that bccause the queen sent a wreath of priniroses to Lord Beaconsfield's funeral, the tlower became his badge in that way. This is a mcre iuveution. Thc queen did not know at the time that the primrose was Lord Heaconslield's favorite tlower, and she did not, consc quently, send a wreath of priniroses to his funeral at all. Others have enter tained the opinion that the noble lord appreciated the tlower because he says in one of his novels that the primrose nuikes an excellent salad. This is in correct again, and the true history of the way the primrose became the noble lord's favorite tlower is recorded above. &&bcrttsements. Save Your Hair BY a timoly QMOf Aypr's llnlr VlRor.

Select lirm, ripe toma toes that are smooth and of good size. From the lop or stem part cut a thin slice, and remove most of the seeds, being careful not to break the sides. Prepare a dressing of bread crunibs, salt, Cayenne pcpper, chopped onion and clarified butter, in the proportiou of two cups of crumbs, a teaspoonful of salt, a dash of red pepper, two tea spoonfuls of onions chopped vcry floe, and two tablespoonfuls of melted but ter; flll the tomatoes full of the dress ing, and bake in a pudding-dish twenty tive minutes; they should be served on a hot dish; nutmeg, marjoram or pars ley may be used instead of onion to season tlie stutling, and the quantity given will flll oue do.eu tomatoes. Another choice way of serriug them as a dinner dish is to prepare iu thc sainc way as for stutling, and to lill with a forcemeat inade from cold boiled hani and mushrooms, chopped fine, bread 'crumba, parsley, salt, red pepper and melted butter. For fllling a doen to matoes, use one cup of hani, two dozen mushrooms, live talilcspoonfuls of stale bread crumbs, two tablespoonfuls of ohopped parsley, an even teaspoonful of salt, one-quarter of a saltspoon of Cayenne, and two tablespoonfuls of melted butter. liake iu a hot ovcn twcnty-live minutes, basting twicewitb melted butter. In (,'arolina an appeliz Ing stutling is rnade from a pint of boiled rloe mixed with a quart of veal or beef broth, salt and onc-half a green pepper chopped line. The iugri-dients are cooked for lifteen minutes, when two tablespoonfuls of melted butter are addcd. After it has sinunered for ten minutes longer, the stulling is put into the tomatoes, and the slice removed is placed on top. They are to be basted twice while baking, with sweet oil or melted butter. They are most casily dished by using a cake-turncr to trans fer them from the pan to the platter. Exchumje. Lcarn to be Hoiisekecpcrs. Ilegin witli your own possessions, girls. Keform your upper burcau drawer; relieve your closet-pegs of their accumulation of garments out of use a nionth or two ago. Institute a clear and careful order in the. inidst of wiiich you can daily move, aud luarn to keep it so that it will be a part of your toilet to dress your room and its arrange ments while you dress yourBelf, leav ing the draperies you take off as lightly and artistically huug, or as delicately folded and placed, as the Bkirts you loop carefully to wear, or the ribbou aud lace that you put with a soft neatness about your throal. Cherish your in stincts of taste and iilness in every lit tle thing you have about you. This will not make you " fussy," it is the Hints to Hoti.sekeepers. MAKE all kitchen aprons of seer suckcr, and so avoid quite an itern in the weekly ironing, as it requires none. If work dresses are made of the same goods, they need ironing only when lined. To make tomato jaru : Seven pounds of peeled tomatoes, ripe, three pounds of sugar, one pound of raisins chopped tine, one-half piut of vinegar; spices to to taste; boil gently uutil thick. A trlfle of cayenne may be added. No matter how large the spot of oil, any carpet or woolcn stuff can be eleaned by applying buckwheat plenti fully and faithfully, brushing it into a dustpan after a short time, and putting on fresh until the oil has all disappeared. To make a fruit sauce that is nice for many puddingS, reduce one cupful of berries to a pulp by pressing them through a flne sieve; add to them one cupful of sugar beaten to a cream with one cupful of butter; add the fruit juice, and lastly the beaten white of an egg, This sauce should be served as soon as it is made. K Kitv mother knows how difficult it is to clean the baby's tinger-nails. Uy folding some tissue paper into a sharp point, and when using it calling thc at teniion of the baby to Bomethiog else, this simple task can be easily per formed, The paper is so soft that it does not hurt tlie teniler tleHh, yet it is BUffleiently tirrn to remove every par ticle of dirt. A FI8H napkin, for boiled tisb, may be made out of tine linen. It should be forty inches long by twenty-tliree wide, with a piece ten inclies long by seven wide cut out of each corner, which leaves the right-sized flapa to turn over on the four sides. The tlaps may be embroidered with some sea design in wash silk, or siniply an Inlttal done in heavy"over and over" em- broldery to match tlie remainder of tlie napery. PeELING potatoes, apples and other vegetablei and fruits will discolor thc hands. Borax water is excellent to re move stains, and heal scratches an chafes. Put crude borax into a large bottle, and flll with water. When di solved add more to the water until at last the water eau absorb no more, and partlolei can be seen at the bottom. To the water in which the hands are to be washcd, pour from this bottle enough to make it very soft. It is cleausing and hcalthful, and by its use the hands will be kept in good eondition. A couKKsroNDENT savs : "Topack CL'gs, take one pint of "lime and one plnl of salt. ( )n these pour one wooden pail of water. Let lliis stand tweuty four hours, then pour off the clear wa ter aud pack the eggs in the clear brine. Pack a few eggs and then add a little of the brine, but never lill tlie stone jar with (!ggs and then flll up afterwards. iie sure there is plenty of brine to fully Dover the eggs, as it will evaporate a little. Cover by dipplng a pieee of pa per in white of egg and put over the jar. The eggs will keep the year round. 1 tliink this recipe will pack about ten dozen," PER CENT FIRST MORTGAGE LOANS Ob irauroved City Properff. NNEAPOLIS, MINN. Money Loaned with Absolute Security.

He rcceived his first niusical iustruc tion from his mother and afterwards from a pianoforte teacher in Moscow uamed Villoing. So early as 181!i he made his first concert-tour with his teacher, journeying to l'aris, where he made the acquaintance of I.iszt, who was then tcaching in that city, and under whose advice he there pur sued his studies. A year later he made a more extended tour, going to Eugland (1842) and thence to Holland, Germany and Sweden. In 184"i he went to study composition with Professor Dchn in Uerlin. From 1840-8 he passed in Vienna and I'ressburg, teaching on his own account. Iu 1S48 he returned to Hussia, where the Grand Duehess Helen nominated him Kanimer-virtuos. After studyiug diligeutly in St. I'eters burg for eight years he appeared as a full-tledged artist with piles of onginal compositions, first in Hamburg and then all over Germany, where he found euthusiastic audiences aud willing pub lishers. From this time his fame as a pianist and composer spread rapidly over Kurope and America. He again visited Kuglaud in 18."i7, aud made his first appearance at the Fhilharmonic on May 18. In 1858 he returned home again, gave brilllant coucerts in St. I'eteisburg, Moscow, etc, and settled in the former city. At this period he was appointed imperial COUrt director, with a life peusion. Theuceforward he worked in coujunction with his late friend, Carl Schuberth, for the advance ment of music in Hussia, and had thc merit of being the founder of the St. 1'etersburg Cousc-i vatoire in 1862, rc malninK its principal until is.jT. The Kussian Musical Society, lounded in isiil , was also his. On leaving Hussia he made another triumphant tour through the greater part of Kurope, which lasted till the spring of 1870. When in his native country, iu 1869, the emperor decorated him with the Vrladimfr order, which raised him to uoble rank. In 1871) he rested awhile and ezpressed the intentlon of retiring from publlc life, but it was not likely that this desire could be fullilled. He held the directorship of the PhU barmonic coucerts aud Choral Society in Vienna for the next year of two, and this was followed by fresh concert tours. l'.very year the same tbreat of retirement is made, but the entreatiet nf the public and, probably, the desire of providing for his wlfe aud familv, bring the gifted genius before us again aud again. Iie has recently extended his tours as far as the south of Spain, from whenoe he bastened baok for tbc funeral of his brother Xicolas. Of late years he has been threatened with the loss of his eyesight,a misfortune caused in some measure by his excessive appli oation to composition; such a depriva tlon. however, wouldnot prove an over- whclming catastrophe, a" his memory is pbenomenal, Rubinsteln'i playing is not only remarkable for thc absolute perfeotion of tecbnique, in whicb he is the only rival Liszt ever had, but there is the Bre and soul which only a true and genial composer can possess. He can play a simple piece of Haydn or Mozart so as to iositively bring tears into the eyes of his hearers, but on the other hand, he will sonietimes fall a prcy to slrange excitcment which causes him to play in the wildest fashion. The Compositions of Hubinstein are not yet sufSclently mellowed by time for us to judge them fairly. Their style may be considered as tho legitimate outcome l Mi ndelssohn; there is a fine broad vein of melody which is supported by true and natural harmony and thorough technical skill. liut there is also the fatal gift of lluency, auil the conse quent lack of that self-criticism and self-restraint which alone make a com poser great. Hubinstein has written in every departmeut of music, but as yet his songs aud chamber uiusic are all that can be called really popular, ex ceptiug always his " Ocean Symphony," which is known all over the world. Hubiustein's appearauce is remarkable. His heud is of a very Hussian type, massivo aud uoble, without beard or tnoustache, but with a thick shock of Three Klnds of liCprosr. It may be stated that there exist three forms of lcprosy. Tho one fa miliar to our minds, from the stories in the Hible of Naaniati, Gehazi, Miriam and I'.ziah still exists, but it is com paratively rare. The whole body turns to a disagrecablc white color and has a scaly texture, but the disease does not seem to affect the gcncral health or the power of getting a livelihood. The anaesthetio form is far worse. Map like, yellowish patches appear on the body, the extremities becomc insensible to pain and gradually disappcar till only stumps remain, the whole body grows weak and decays, and the mind often becomes lcthargic. Thc master of a lepcr asyluni in India told me that one day he smelt cooking, and, as the lepers were forbidden to cook, he went to see what was happening, A leper had felt cold, and had stuck his foot into the fire and burnt it off. On another occasion he heard a cry in the night, and, on going to invesligate, he found that a foot had just dropped olT. One man was partly eaten by rats when he was aslecp. l'ain is, after all, a siirn of health, and its absence is to be drcaded. Kather Damien found out that he was a leper by one day scalding his foot, and making the terrible dis coverv that it gave him no pain. The tubercular variety of lcprosy is even more dreadful, and I must be excused from dcscribing its later devclopments. Sullice it to say that the bodv is a mass of diseolored swellings and abnoimal devclopments, that the aspect of it be comes more bestial than human, and that it gradually decomposes. In an BesthellC and tubercular lcprosy the sulTcrer happily becomes liable to chrouic dysentery or diarrhica, which has the blessed power of killing the sufferer. Still, 1 have found many who had been iepers for nearly thirty years. Now it may be conlidcntly Bffirmed that, if the government does its duty, India will be freed from leprosy as surely as Norway and Ilawaii are being freed from it by their laws of segrega tion, and as surely as our own smiling Kngland, with its former two hundred lifty leper hospitals, has been delivered Irom tnis nving death. hrtvcard tlxf ford in Fortnvjhtly ElvitW, Who Own the rounfry Let us inquire whether there is any excessive concentralion of wealth going on in the Uuited States of America. Leaving mere clamor and unsupported assertions out of consideration, on either side, let us look into facts. As lately as 1S47 there was but one man in this country who was reputed to be worth more than 85,000,000; and though some estimated his wealth at 20,000, 000, there is no good reason for be lieving it to have been so great. At the smallest reasonaole estimate, there must now be more than 250 persons in this country whose wealth averages over 20,000,000 for each. But let us call the number only 200. Income-tax returns show that the number of in coines, when arranged in largo classes, multiplies by from three to five-fold for every reduction in the amount of one half. For extreme caution, however, we estimate the increase in the number of incomes at a very much lower rate than this. At this reduced rate, the amount of wealth in the hands of per sons worth over 500,000 each in the United States would be about as follows: Jfiy periiniiH ut :.'i'.Oi'i,0(H). 400 ' lO.tmo.titHi. , LMQ " .1,1100,000. , J..100 " 'i.-WO.IHKl. . 7.0VO " l.ooo.ooo., .'u.ooo .vw.ood. . t (.000 ,000 .000 1,000,000,000 ft0Ov000,MO 0,'JVi,ii"o.ooo T.OOO.oOO.OOO . lo.uou.ooo.ooo Totsi M,aaoww This estimate is very far below the aclual truth. Yet, even upon this basis, we are confrouted with the startling rcsult that 31,000 persons now possess three-lifths of the whole ua tional wealth, real and persoual, ac cording to the highesl estimate (860, (HXi.1100,000) which any one has yet ventured to make of the aggregate amount. Nor is this conclusion at all Improbable. Thomaa a. Shearman, in thc Forum. A Novel Befrigerator. A young friend of mine, who has for several years each sunnuer gone with his father on a camping trip on the south shore of Lake Superior, tells me of a novel expedlent they often em ploycd for preserving their venison in warm weather. Iu that country some of the itreams are flanked by long rows of saud-hills, whose composition is so loose that they shift about coutinually under a Wlnd of any force. Iu the winter-timc thc nigh winds often blow the sand over the great snow banks which lie upon the north side of the sand duncs, covering up the snow to a depth of several fcct. The snow is thui kept unmelted, aud even in the mlddle of summer one can dig down through the saud to it and tiud tlie bcst Imaginable lOrt of a natural refrig erator. In this way, said my young friend, they buried their deeraud trout, and found them entircly frcsh so long as they cared to leave them.
