If we would have cool parlors, dining rooms, kitchens nntl bed moms, during the Jtot wcntlier we must hare tnosiiito net ting or wire fruuzn in nil our windows, and. If possible nt tin- doors ulso. Window blinds i nn not take the nlnce of ncttimr or (fauzo, because thev excluilo so much of the cool evening nnd ni'ht nir, nnd ah though they are very essential nnd need- tul to shut out tho hot sunshine, and the heating storm, yet they will not answer nil our need. Mopii,o netting can be purchnsed nt a very chenp rate, and the '"gudo man" can easily make or procure some frames to lit all the windows, which can be painted either white or stained a dark red to match tho sashes of the win dows. Then dark blue, pink, green or white mosquito-netting can bo easily r.trctched and tacked over them by the skillful lingers of the house-mother ; mid after she has nsvil them for one summer, nothing could persuade her to go without them nnother season. They will exclude mosquitoes, flics, moths nnd all other insects, and will nut exclude tiie fresh, cool nir. Tin y are very ensilv taken out and put in ; or they can be so arranged that the windows can be closed on dump, cool days. Any woman can . tack a piece of the netting across tho lower haif of the window on the outside of the sash, if that is the only means she can employ. The wire gauze requires a workman's handling- and it can be made into permanent shades which will with stand all weathers. When wo have tried the good effects of these shades wc must also have the doors attended to. A sliglit framework of pine ran bo mado, and fast ened to the outer donr posts by means of strong hinges nnd a hasp to fasten it with, and a handle to op.n it by, wc can bid de- uauco to nies ana moso,iiitocs twin ny day and night. Common tools nnd a little in genuity are needed to prepare a door, blind or shade for the outer kitchen piuzza, which will aihl far beyond its cost to the comfort of the cook and Itousowifu. Mos tpiito netting can do duly for the shade when tho door tVumu is rnady : but coarse wire ncltlnsf, such as is used for sieves and tho like, would be far preferable, be' cause it would last for a long time, while the cotton netting is usually destroyed in two years. In nslng the cotton netting, however, for the windows, it is well to select the pure white for the parlor pink for Uie chambers, and green or blue for the kitchen, pantry and milk.

This remark is applicable to men only. A woman twisted round, that both legs may come on one side, with a stove pipe hat and veil and chignon nnd corset and a long shirt. is qnnvAnntlier affair. She may pretend that sue enjoys mis excruciating penor mance ; hut, if so, it Is for tho same reason that young ladies eujov the first sea-voyage, because it is fashionable. The gallant, worshipful tonkins have contributed not a little to the passion for the saddle among ambitious young ladies, Une ot them delivers mmseit thus: Hoy l,Ht. Here is a beautiful, tender thought am plified with all the feeling of genuine originality, indeed to pure and effortless that we ice) it a duty to send it broadcast tor the "culture of the mind."

But my eves are nelv ing for the slsrht of whittlinirs and cut na iler on the floor : of tumbling down card houses: of wooden sheep and cattle: of pop-guns, Bows ana arrows, whips, tops. go-cartSt blocks and trumpery. I want to see boats a-iiggiug, and kites n-ma1ing. I want to see crumbles on the carpet, nnd paste spilt on the kitchen table. J want to see the chairs nnd table turned the wrong way about. 1 want to see candy making nnd corn-poping, nnd to find jack knives nnd fish-hooks among my muslins. Yet these tldngs used to fret me once. Thev say : 'How quiet you are here I Ah ! one here may settle, his brains and be at Hace. But my cars are aching for the pattering ot little teet, tor n hearty shout, a shrill whistle, n gay tia la la, for the crack of little whips: for the noise c drums, tiles, and tin trumpets. Yet these things made me nervous once. A manly figure stands before me now. He is taller than I, has thick whiskers, wears a frock coat, a bosomed shirt and a cravat. He has just conic from college. Ho brings I.atiu and Greek in his countenance, nnd busts of the; old philosophers for tho sitting room. He call me mother, but 1 am rather unwilling to own him. He nvers that ho is my boy, nnd says that lie can prove it. Ho brings his little boat to show the red stripe on the sail (it was tho end of the piece and name on the stern, Lucy Lowe, a little girl of our neighbor, who, because of her long curls and pretty. round face, was tho chosen favorite of my boy.

Captain Burton, was Consul there, and in daily intercourse with the subject of this paragraph. Knowing that after her death all.sorts of untruths would appear in the papers, very painful to her family as, indeed, she was not spared while" living she wished me to write her biography, and gavo mo an hour a day until it was accomplished. Sho did not spnrc lrferself, dictating tho bad- with the same frankness as the good. 1 was pledged ' not to publish this until after her death and that of certain near relatives ; but I am in a position to state thattherc is n grain of truth to a ton of falsehood in the para graph from Bcyrout, nnd. inasmuch a Bey rout is only seventy-two miles from Damascus, the writer must know that us well as I do. It must have come from a very common source when such English ns this is used: "Between - Boyrout and Damascus sho got pleased with the camel driver 1" It suggests a discharged lady's maid. I left Damascus just a year and a half ago, in tho middle of the night, nud sho was the last friend to secino out of the city. As sho wrung iny hand these were her last wonts : "J lo not lovget your promise, if 1 die, nnd we nover meet again." I re plied: "Inshallah, I shall soon return." She rode a black thoroughbred Arab marc, and, ns far as I could see anything In the moonlight, her large, sorrowful blue eyes, glistening with tears, haunted mo. I cannot meddle witii tho pnst without infrins-inL' on the bloif riiphv confided to mo, but I can say a few words concerning- her life, dating from her arrival in tho East, about sixteen yenrs ngo, ns told mo by herself and bv those now living there, nud I can add mv testimony ns to what I saw, which f believe will interest everyone in Eniriand, from the highest clownward, and bo a gratification to those more nearly concerned. About sixteen years ago, tired of Europe. Lady Ellenborough con ceived the idea of visiting tho East, and of imitating Lady Hester Stanhope and Lady Mary W ortlr.y Montagu. (There is also a rrencii laity, flianaino no in lour u Auveririie. who has built herself a temple on the top of Mount Olivet.) Lady Ellcniio rough arrived nt Bcyrout, and went to Damascus, where sho nrranged to go to Bagdad across the desert. A ifcuomn escort for this journey was necessary, and, as the Mezrab tribe occupied the ground, the duty of commanding the esoorl de volved noon Shnvkh Miiwai, a yomi; brother of Shnvkh Mohammed, chief of this tribe, which is a branch of the great Annzch tribe. On the journey the young Shnvkh fell in love with tiiis beautiful woman, who possessed all the qualities that could lire the Arab imagination. Even two vears ngo she was mora nrtractive than half the vouner crirls of onr time.. It ended by his proposing to divorce his Moslem wives and to marry her ; t pass half the year in Damascus, (which to him waa like what London and Paris would he to ns.) for her pleasure, and half In the desert, to lead tils natural lifo.
