About Flirtation in General -Henry 6.
Davis Confining Himself to
Private Enterprises.
A very charming society joung lady re
marked to me the other day, that "it ha«
been disgustingly dull in Wheeling ever
since last winter. Why I have only had a
half dozen good diriations in a year." '
While I sympathized with htr on account
of the plentiful lack of entertain menu and
agreeable delusions, it'« a burning pilty, a
young lady ot vers Vile accomplishments,
possessing so many good qualities of heart
and mind m w*ll as te*u'y of perscn,
could unblushingly admit she ployed an
active part in a halt dozen desperate flir
tations in one year, or lifetime, and is still
not satisfied with kmng the innocence
such ammusement has robbed her of.
Every flirtation a girl engages in relieve«
her of just that much guileless purity and
innocence. Men who have long beep out
in the world participating in the fascina
tions and vuciaitudea of society under
stand this campleteiy.

• •
What kind ot a man is he who wants tor
his wite the girl—no matter ho« charming
or beautiful—wnose sweet lips have been
at som* time the unvalued property of per
haps two-third« of his gentleman acquain
tances? Men flirts are very properly termed
by the femaM portion "f society, ' de
testable." admit it, and yet they are par
donable tor plarieg the Claude Melnotte
role Aside from tue torcesot principle,
forbidding a l.fe, or even fortnight of de
ception, a man while entangled in the de
ligh'tul mashes ot a flirtation, is mors or
less under the influence ot a purer and
more rtfiaed nature than his own, and
while undoubtedly, he sown seeds of wick
edness in the gentler person, at the same
time that centimes* and punry w;il snr»ly
have its effect, to raise him nearer the lev«]
where only such virtues dwell In other
word?, during the flirtation period, the
man is under the influence ot a pure in
nocent girl and the girl, puts herself in
confidential contact wi>h one woo does not
even claim to h«ve any of these qualities.
Thea you see the cause, it is no: dithcalt
to guess the effect. No mua claims to
reach the high plain of innocent pur.ty,
trod by his titters He therefore, in one
wvbo in us' be benefited by the flirtation, it
his nature is not callous to good. It it is
wrong tor a traveler wandering through an
isolated and birren desert to stop and in
hale the sweet aroma arising from an oc
casional lily bloomiug near the pathway?
If the sight of that lowly fljwer whose
spotless petals kissed wirb heaven's dew.
gladden» no' his heart, nor permeates his
beirg wi'h admiration for nature's God,
so is it ir.me for each a nature to meet
ander any circumstances, a girl with the
i&nçcent purity ot childhood throwing its
•weet fragrance about her.

• •
All dirting ia wrong ftoai principle, and
I only want to prove, that if men should
not dirt—as all ladies a^ree they should
not—it is actually sinful for a girl, for it
compromises her puri'y and impoverishes
her innocence, and no matter how well she
may cover it up, the fact will be observed
by every gentleman she meets.

Ex-Senator Henry G Davis, having
thrown off the yoke of govermental toil,
appears to confine his taleata entirely tc
private enterprises which grow and branch
out under his great skill like maples nndei
the rays of a spring-time snn This course
is unusual and only 'proves again the
traits of character and wisdom that formed
a potent factor in gaining for Senatoi
Davis the enviable reputation he enjoy«
among oar national rulers. Generali?
when a man gets away up to the top round
of the poli'ic<*i ladder, he holds on to the
pinnacle of fame and activity with a death
grip. Washington City is full of ex Sena
tors ex-Congressmen and ex Secretaries,
who once held political orestege, and who
now sacrifice home interests to remain
there, clinging like a vine to the oak, to
the powers they love so well

Few men in either house possessed the
influence uf Senator Davis. Daring his
term of S*-a*torehip I was several times in
a position to see just where he stood with
his colleague's in that body, and found him
nnivei-saliy regard*! with esteem and con
idene». He gained the ear ot the most
important members ot Congress as well
as the leading business men and capitalists
of the East, and keer« it. Not by the
■weet elegance ot his flowery tongue, but
by his sound judgment and striking charac
ter. A friend in storm as well as sunshine,
and from the shadows of these stafely
walls, the horrid forms of official pecala
and fraud woulJ skulk a^ay affrighted at

WOMAN S DUTIES.
Writu* far U< StmJoy RtfisUr.
Oh what a field opens oat when yoa take
op this subject. As far as the eye can
roach in every direction a broad expanse
spreads out before yoa. It will be safe to
tnrust in one s sickle almost any where,
being sure oi reaping a harvest ot ideas—
whether they be new or old is another mat
ter.
I think TU give you "Isaacs" ideas of
woman's duties? 1 often coax him to
tell me just wbat he thinks a woman's daty
is.
He k averse to telling, for few more
ears than mine have the benefit—but by
diligent questioning ;I let»rn a little of
what I have always known, that a woman's
duty is to take care of her house" that
"taking care of her house," means different
things with different people.
Isaac's idea cf a woman was, "take
care of her house" properly, is one who
always ia neat and tidy and smiling as
thongfc weariness was unknown to her.
Oae whose house is always ready to un
expected guests, whose table is always
ready to welcome the most honored visitor
who is brought home unannounced, one
whose children are always well behaved
and whoee husband never found a button
missing.
The great charm about this woman is
that she has her own work.
You will not be astonished to learn that
' Isaac' has not jet met his model house
keeper.
In addition to ' looking well to the ways
ot her household" he expecs her to have
a well s'ored mind—she oagut to ba well
read on ail points and able to discass in
telligently any topic of general interest
Well, 1 think "Isaac" is right in nearly
evrry particular.
No woman s education is completed till
she is a practical house wife and an ac
complished seamstress.
Nevertheless I do not think it her duty to
spend her days in doing the drudgery of her
uuuscaccpiu^.
Dooaa't a practical machinist begin at
I the very beginning oi bid trade and rise
step by step, till he is fitted to make a
competent machinist.
Just so I tbink a woman "«bo looks well
to the «ays oi her household," is one who
is a competent manager. À woman's
work, we all know, is never done, because
her hta is made up of so manj little
things.
A man has his regular business hours
and is not likely to be interrupted by any
thing not pertaining strictly to his busi
I ne>s.
No matter how systematica woman may
be about her work, she is alwats at the
mercy of her unsystematic friends and
neighbors. Order aud system are two of
the most important laws of a household.
It we could only have the mottoes, "A
time ior everything and everything in its
time;" and 'A place for everything and
everything in its place," hnng up in every
room of our house*, and a law p u>?ad com
pelling the inhabitants to accent them we
miçh: hope to accomplish something. Or
der is said to b« heaven s first law.
Some one has s&id that some blessings
com» in clusters I' ke the fruit of the vine,
bat God poors out for as the golden elixir
Of life drop by drop, minute by minute,
taking oca away before he gives ua an
other.
But says some one, no woman can at
tend her home duties and go aboat to
societies oi one kind and another.
All 'he anawtr I have tor that is, that
the women who do the most work for
humanity and its uplifting, have the best
kept homes I see, and their children are
the best behaved of any I meet.
It is a good thing ior a child to look op
to its mother and find broad culture oi
h?art and brain, and this no child can find
it the mother is compelled to be a mere
household drudge.
Aside from being a practical house
keeper, every girl ought to have some kind
of a trade.
Many a delicately reared girl, has iound
in sons sudden dark hour, that her iather's
iortune has been swept away, and she in
her helplessoesa knows not where to turn
Sa I would have her taught somethiog
that would enable her tobe independent ii
necessary.
Tuen we dare not forget that great
multitude ot untrained and untaught wo
{ m*n who are crowding our cities.
Ii the women from our homes of culture
and Christianity do not eo out aud help
np these untaught ones, can you calculate
the result?
Do yon know oi any society of men who
will help raise them? Do you believe that
the homes oi this country will be s&ie ii
the noblft women of the land do not go out
into the highways and hedges and compel
Christ a poor to goto Hits? Will a woman's
own home be safe if she remembers not
that she is her' brothers keeper?' Yon
know 'Good the more communicated, the
; more abondant grows "
Therefore the women who ?o out among
God's poor will have the reflex influence
shed aboat their homes. There is a large
j class oi women who do not have to be
bome-makero or home-keepers, but we can
not talk of them at thi* tisse.
RsbkkaH.
A Iforel Progressive kachr« Party.
Cincinnati Qrnphic.
The tables were arranged in the large
; parlors so that there was quite a distance
between tee bead table and the three oth
ers. The Booby table represented France
and it w»is covered with a handsome Pari
sian mat. Tbe plying cards were beauti
fully pictured, representing court jester
and thea'rical celebrities. Here bon-bons
were distributed which contained fools'
caps. The conversation was
earned on entirely in French.
The third table was deeignat«d Germany.
The lucky couple who were at the Booby
table then traveled from France to Ger
many. Like the last table everything used
was characteristic of the couutry. The
plajing cards were quits patriotic, the
' kings and quests of the pant generation
being artistically executed on them. Of
coarse a change of language was neces
sary, and tàeoa not proficient was com
pelled, like many poor tourist*, to trust to
luck. The table, from Berlin, whs em
broidered, mcst accurately displaying
' a pack of cards thrown careleeely on
the table. Several gentlemen, who at
tempted to pick np some of them, can
testify how natural they were. Next the
lucky tourists crossed the channel and
landed in England, the second table. A
' hug« oak card table and straight-backed
I chairs were used. The playing cards were
gorgeously illustrated, representing scenes
in the Jodian and Egyptian campaigns

carry off the numerous h's that were con

pm* table, situated in the back parlor.
•as decorated with the «Un and atripe^
and the cards were a pictorial description
ot the discovery of America.
At last onr exicited tourist« breathed a
tifh of relief, and talked to their hearts'
contest. The winners at this table were
only too glad to remaio. bat the unforta
nate losers were compelled, like the Wan
dering Jew, to 'move on." The guests
were bewildered and delighted, for the de
tails of the game were perfect, and the ef
fect most happy. As the first game at
the head of the table was concluded, the
Swiss clock chimed in with "Cackoo,
Cuckoo," which became the victor's tri
umph cry during the evening. The badges
were made of birch bark, upon which the
aces, duces, trays and fours were worked
in man; colored straws The prizes were
collected daring a long trip abroad, and
were most tasteful souvenirs.

On Tburaday last Joüu Eckley, a 19
year-old boy, who lives at Eck ley Station,
about one mile this aide of Vail«jo Junc
tion. s«allowtd a knife with the blade
open. He wa* immediately taken to San
Fraucisco and pUctd utdt- charge of a
physician, aud, as the knife was
in his stomach, the cade was
oonsidered of a most seri
ons nature. W. H. H. Willey, Wells,
Fargo Jt Co 's agent between this city and
San Francisco, is a particular friend of the
unfortunate lad. Mr. Willey, about noon
jesterday, called at the doctor s office and
s%w his friend sitting upon the sofa lie
greeted him with "Hello, Johnny; how's
the knife?'' ' Oh, the knife's ail right,"
replied young Eckiey; "I have it here in
my pocket. Do you wish to see it?" and,
reacning in'o his pocket, brought forth a
small pearlhandle pocketknife, which,
with the blade extended, measured 3}
inches in length. "I am all right now;
have had a considerable pain, and was al
most scared to death. ' The knife was pass
ed over to Mr. Whitney for inspection. The
steel in the back and the blade bad changed
to a dark blue color, and the pearl handle
had been eaten off one-half by the action
of the gastrc juice of the stomach, the
rivets projecting about tha thirty-second
part of an inch. "I'll tell yon now bow I
came to «wallow it," ■aid Johnny; "I was
talking to some girls and eating a pear at
the »aua t;me. catting off small portions
oi it wnh ut knife, ween I «aid, *1 can
rmpletely hide this knjle in my month.'
pot {ftp blade is firtt, bot I 'could
not* oloM my lipa without
making it prick my tonsils. I took it out
and pot the handle in first, and then hold
ing the point of the blade between my
teeth closed my lips and the feat was per
formed. I just then swallowed, and 'presto,
change,' the knife went down my throat
I could reach the point of the blade, bnt
could not extricate it, and another swallow
sent it into my stomach. It's all right
now It went down handle first and came
ont point first, but it's out now, and I
don't propose following the business of a
juggler any more. No pocketknife ever
gets above my lower lip again. In fact, I
don't think jackknives were made to swal
low, anyhow."
The doctor said: "When he came down
to me saying he had swallowed an open
jackknife I could hardly credit the state
ment. I asked him what he had done to
remove it. He replied some had advised
taking sweet oil, others castor oil, salts.
Ac. I said, 'Well, I suppose you took all
of them?' 'No, I did not,' he replied; 'I
have taken nothing.' 'All right,' I replied;
you have saved your life by doing so.'
Well, tir, I put him on a buckwheat diet.
That was all I let him eat or drink—buck
wheat cakes and buckwheat gruel Buck-,
wheat is not easily digested, and I knew it
would form a ball around the knife, and
thus allow it to pass along its circnitcu*>
route without doing injury, the blade and |
rough edges being completely covered
with a thick and smooth coating of buck-1
wheat It acted just as I expected. The
blade came first and although Johnny bas
lost a few days' time, he did not lose his |
knife, but will take it home with him to-1
morrow."
A GOOD SNAKE STORY.
Tb« Academy of Sciences Déclinés to !
Believe la the Jointed Snake.
Proceedings of Academy of Science* in the Chicago I
!<»«. ♦
Dr. Barlelt followed with'the exhibition
of specimens of the lizard family; obtained
from Yucatan, in connection with which
he presented letters and affidavits he had
received in reference to a species ot
snake which is said to infest the
Illinois prairie«. The letters were from
Mrs. Triall and Mrs. Buell, of Roc* port
III, and in them they claimed to have re
cently seen a snake about their flower beds,
known as the glass or jointed snake, which :
upon their appearance itood erect upon
its tail. Mrs Triall approached the reptile,
she says, ani struck it wijh a stick, whire- j
upon u fell into four distinct pit-cea. The
part containing the head wriggled around
tor awhile, and in an instant al
most she observed that it gathered
up the other pieces, as an engine making
up a train ot cars, and speedily mo v. d off,
as it nothing had happened, the pieces ail !
rewureu.
Mrs Buell added her testimony a:.d
Affidavit to the truthfulness of the eta'e
ment and Rev. T. J. Keller, a Canpbellite
preacher ot the same place, backed both
ot their statement by Baying that he had j
often seen the same strange phenomena ;
in that section. He related one in I
stance where the snake had been broken into
four pieces, end where the head had wrig
gltd 08 a distance of some ten feet and a
moment later retamed, when all the parts
were restored to their former condition and
relations, as if by magic. Duiing the ab
sence of the head be said he examined the
ether parts, fonnd them hard and free
from blood or other matter, and in conala
siou be expressed considerable surpriee
that the phenomena related was not gen
erally known sad accepted as true.
Dr. Andrews said he had taken eomo
pains to inquire into the story, and had
tound the affiants earnest, capable people,
and he had no reason to donht their bin
cerity, nor yet that they actually believed
that they hau seen what they narrated
He could not, however, dispel a few doubts
he had on the entire subject. In the first
place he regarded it as improbable j
ior a snake to stand erect uport its
tail; then, again, he coald not convince
himself of the possibility of the bowels,
arteries and spinal cord of the snake, or
anything else, being suddenly separated,
except at the cost of life, much less at the
possibility of their being united, as hr,d
been claimed.
Oiher members shared in tbeBauie opin
ions and agreed that the evening had been
one of unusual interest, to say the least,
but nothing short of thé preseuca of one of
the remarkable snakes will satisfy the
academy.

San FranoUcan.

Philadelphia Prtt*.

Boston that that is allowed. A beard is
supposed to be a sign that the bearer is
abandoning frivolities and has settled
down from sowing his wild oats. The
young fellows aH fight shy of the bearded
ones. Makes tome of :em look too young
and insignificant by comparison.
