An extract from the Journal of Eliza beth Woodville, afterward Lady Gray, and finally queen of Edward IV., shows that the eirl of the fifteenth century was a very all-round kind of person. It 1.3 doubtful if even our up-to-date fin-de-siecle girl could equal her 400-years-back sister in activity and variety of housekeeping accomplishments. Monday morning Rose at 4 o'clock and helped Catherine to milk the cows. Rachel, the dairy-maid, having' scalded her hand in so bad a manner the night before, made a poultice and gave Itobln a penny to get something from the apothecary. 6 o'clock The buttock of beef too much boiled and beer a little stale. Mean to talk to the cook about the first fault and to amend the other my self by tapping a fresh barrel Imme diately. 7 o'clock Went to walk with the lady (my mother) in the courtyard; fed twen-ty-flve men and women; chid Roger severely for expressing some ill will at attending us with some broken meat. 5 o'clock Went into the paddock be hind the house with my maid Dorothy; caught Thump, the little pony, myself; rode a matter of ten miles without sad dle or bridle. 10 o'clock "Went to dinner. John Grey, a most comely youth, but what is that to me? A virtuous maid should be entirely under the direction of her parents. John ate but little and stole a great many tender glances at me; said women would never be handsome In his eyes who were not good-tempered. I hope my temper is not Intolerable. Nobody finds fault with It but Roger and he Is the most disorderly youth In our house. John Grey likes white teeth; my teeth are a pretty good color. I think my hair Is as black as jet, though I say it, and John Grey, If I mistake not. Is of the same opinion. 11 o'clock Rose from the table, the company all desirous of walking in the field. John Grey lifted me over every stile, and twice squeezed my hand with much vehemence. I cannot say I should have much objection, for he plays at prison-bar as well as any of the country gentlemen, is remarkably dutiful to his parents, my lord and lady, and never misses church on Sunday. 3 o'clock roor Farmer Robinson' house burned down by accidental fire. John Grey proposed a subscription among the company for the relief of the farmer, and gave no less than four pounds with this benevolent Intent. (Mem. Never saw him look so comely as at this moment.) 4 o'clock Went to prayers. 6 o'clock Fed hogs and poultry. MR. SKEEMER'S SCHEME. IT He Carries It Out lit- Will lie : IV.cU M;in lril"CI.

I used to sweep out a railroad station, and I'd take to the business easier than you. besides, I'm a harder puncher than you. After I get through with you the Job would be worth 175.000 at least. How about It?" "No," said Skeemer, "the idea is mine, and if I can't assign the speaking parts I won't play. Oh, very well; if you don't want to, simply don't. I'll just hire a man for $00 to let me pound him and then I'll pet all the profits myself. I'm going right down town now to see Col. Ilain and get the job, and you'll feci pretty sick when you read in the papers about another elevated guard running amuck and half killing a passenger. Won't you wish you'd been him? I'll be a rich man in a week." And he headed for downtown to get the job. New York World. A New Can l Saw.

Long before ladles' newspapers wer started, and fashion plates in their modern form were thought cf, ladies derived their knowledge of the fash Ions from dolls dressed In the modern costumes, which were sent from one country to another, more especially from Paris, which then, as now, was the leading center of the mode. This custom of exchanging fashion dolls commenced early In the fifteenth cen tury, and prevailed for more than one hundred years, when wood cuts and en gravings were substituted until toward the end of the eighteenth century, when colored fashion plates and illustrated almanacs made thetr appearance. (re.it ladies used to send dolls to theit friends at a distance, and as the cos tumes were made by professional "cut ters" exactly to the right shape and lat est style, with due regard to details of materials and trimmings, the drees, makers had only to enlarge the meas urements of them.
