(Copyright, 1893, by Diana de Morny.) "Ogni medaglia ha 11 suo riverso" and the reverse of obesity is emaciation. Neither coudition is compatible witli beauty; the fat woman is repel Inn t becau.se all the con tours of beauty are gone; the hollow cheeked, angular flat chested woman can not be really physically lovely either, but the grossucss of obesity is certainly more to be deplored than the cadaverous condition of emaciation. The path which leads to flesh is one of roses compared to the road which the corpulent must tread, as you will see There arc a number of causes of emaciation; sometimes the tendency is in herited, and if there be a chronic organic disease, such as consumption, or ait in herited scrofulous disease, the directions I have to give can only avail to a certain point; but for the ordinary, every-day too thin woman there is a certain and Mire cure. First of all, plenty of fresh air, for, paradoxical as it may appear, the very rule by which fat "women are to burn up their superfluous adipose tissues as I explained iu my last talk, is the method by which the thin ones must increase their muscular strength and put themselves iu a condition to assimilate the food which is to produce the fat Let all the thin women obey the following rules rmd unless they have some chronic ailment, I will stake my reputation on the result. HELPFUL SUGGESTION'S. On arising, or -while you are still In bed If convenient, drink a glass or milk. Practice with your dumb-bells for not more than five minutes aud dress leisurely, don't al low yourself to get nervous; no unc ever gains any time by it, and nany women have absolutely chiselled lines into Uieir faces in the nervous contraction of the muscles about the brow, eyes and mouth from too violent "hustling." It is just as important that a thin woman chord (1 wear her clothes loose as for a fat woman tiot to draw herself into an inadequate compass. Have your clothes not only loose out also light in weight, with lots of -pare space about the chest and shoulders. For breakfast. If you arc leieiidMiti:pon your coffee, drink it -with as much cream or milk and sugar as you can -.Mlhout its being distasteful to you; if you ran do eo without too much sacnf ice ?or I know now most women dQpend upon 'heir morning coffee substitute cocoa or chocolate. Make your first meal of oatmal or any other palatable cereal, baked potatoes -with butter and cream, brad and butter, fruit, any thing containing starch or sugar. You are to avoid meats as much as possible; a bit of juicy steak or a broiled chop will not hurt you, but it will not bring .voj cither fat or strength. Many very I'un people are troubled with dyspepsia and rf course if your food is not properly digested 'i cannot It did .look queert w . f1I' jS nrr it g&&ZZtv5F&2'Sr ,VtS-'i ! . make blcod or muscle. Dyspepsia is a fre quent cause of emaciation. "WHEN NER V ES ARE IRRITABLE. For nervous dyspepsia with a tendency to hysteria, which many emaciated women Buffer from, take any one of the wcllen dorsed liquid peptonoids according to di rections, yourdrugglst will he ahleto supply you, and for the indigestion which causes red face after eatmg or blotches on the faco, the following: Tincture of mix vomica, five dropB In water before each meal. Stibgallate of bismuth, five drops after each meal. If your food troubles you bo that it will not always remain In your stomach, but produce faintness and retching, eat a little at a lime and eat often. Try rorthisform of dyspepsia the following: Aromatic spirits of ammonia, one tea spoonful In a wine glass of wuter half an hour berore eating, three times dally. The digestive organs may be weakened by not giving them enough to do, quite as effectively as by overworking them. Many very thin people are very quick and nervous in their movements, they are always iu haste. Try to cultivate laziness and eat as slowly as possible. Sugar is the most effective of all fattenersso you may indulge your liking for sweets If It exists mid if not you must try to form a taste for food con taining sugar. Alter your breakfast get ready for a nice long walk; if it is a possible thing let your companion be a bright and cheerful creature, or a merry little child, for low spirits arc thieves lying in weight to ruin your digestion, to caive lines and wrinkles in your face, and to uptet my best en deavors to make you plump and pretty. Try to recollect that the old saw, "Laugh and grow fat," was, like the other prov erbs, founded on a tiuism. It is trite but none the less a fact that laughter will aid digestion and assimilation of food and In duce thr sort of fatigue we are striving for, which is followed by a delicious hour or more of tissue-repairing indolence. "With your clothing loose, your feet shod in comfortable, tlat-hecled shoes, you start forth on your promenade, which may .properly be called a constitutional. Throw your shoulders back, close your mouth, and take as long and deep breaths as possible. Keep your head up, your chin well for ward, and if you walk whore it will not attract too much attention do bo with your hands clasped behind your back. 1 Miould like you, for your personal satisfaction, to get weighed and have your chest meas ured before entering upon the fat-producing regimen. It will be most interest ing to you to watch your progress by the infallible tests of weight and measure ments. Bo not walk until you are tired and nervous and irritable. An hour to commence with is quite sufficient. Now, if you are a woman of leisure, take a warm bath on your return, and after it anoint the entire body with the following skin food: CATHAY SKIN FOOD. Melt together over a warm bath. White wax 2 drachms Spermaceti 2drachms Lanoline 2 ounces Oil of sweet almond 4 ounces Balsam of Mecca 3 drachms Oil of rose (otto) 10 drops This skin food will nourish impover ished cuticle. Rub it in eo jou are iot left iu a greasy coi.dition; darken jour room aud lie down for a rest of an hour or more; sleep If jou can, but in any caso rest. If you are hungry take a glass of nnlk or a bottle of Ki,niyss, which may be obtained at the apothecary's. Of courgo where one has a family one cannot give up the morn ing hours to a Ira Hi and nap. Substitute the same directions for tLo late aiternoon or delay the bath and ai o.ntiug ui.til just be fore retiring but in this cnto try nrd get an undisturbed hour or two durirg the day for absolute rest away from uoho aiid tree from interruption. Many very lean women are inclined to melancholia. With joich a tendency jou l:tu!dmake tLt strongest effort to cultivate cl rorlulucfs. You -will never get rourd and pretty wh.Ieycu allow yourself to be low-1-!) riled. 1 1 co'e bright, joj-ous compan ons ar.d avoid every morbid association, not onlj- with people, but books and plaj-s even muse if too -icd ie un healthful for ycu. Let ourat, jolly s'ners steady themselves a 1 ttle 1 j- crntact wih the sadder s'cle of li'e Five minutes' exer cise with dumb l.ellsl cfore luncheon. For luncheon ye.u may fellow your own fancy, only abstaining ficm tia or coffee and sub stituting milk, or a imreinl water, if jou prefer, ar.d chrosing such vegetable? as peas, beans, i otatces.egg plant, green corn, in preference to cucumbers, rnlad, luriiips, cauliflower, etc. All 'ar'racctusiccds are good for you if j-ou find t lit in palatable: eat freely of oatmeal .wheat foods, rice.homf ny, corn meal, and fnntswith cream and sugar. TBE RIGHT SORT .OF EXERCISE. In the afternoon you should take some - tontr - ' exercise horseback riding, tennis, rowing, bicycling, or more walking, and an hour of rest again If possible. Recollect you are cultivating Idleness, you are to make a duty of being lazy. If j-ou are in the habit (if doing fine needle work I wish you would ceabe Tor a time. 1 find thu art embroidery craze accountable formally crow's-feet and for a nervous condition which is incompati ble with a woman's beauty. Thin women are usually very busy aud active, and to be positively idle is a real pain to them but content yourself for the present with some coarser work and those of j'ou who are so happy to live away from tho wear and tear of city life can surely do a bit of gardening at this beautiful season of the year in place of "fancy work." It often happens that very thin women are really half starved; they have no appotlte and in consequence no strength, no ambition, no courage, noth ing but frayed out nerves and a threadbare temper. If j-ou have a dislike for food you Snust take a good tonic. Try one of the best maltextracts or thefollowing excellent appetizer, which can easily be made at home. TONIC. Gentian root, 2 ounces; bitter oranges, sliced, 1 ounce; Virginia snake root, 1-2 ounce. Bruise, and infuse for four daj3 in 1 pint of brandy; then add 1 pint of water. A wine glassful to be taken occasional'. This Is also excellent for flatule'ncj'. Lessons in elocution or singing will be of great benefit to the narrow-chested woman, and where tho emaciation is progressive and there is a-cough, with a bright fluh in the afternoon, send immediately for one of the numerous emulsions of cod liver oil and tnke it according to directions. I have ar rested many cases of emaciation with a tendency to consumption by a good emul sion of cod liver oil and proper voice cul ture. For dinner you may eat oysters or clams, soups, fish, rare meats, vegetables, except those proscribed, sauces, entrees, sweets, and fruits. You may drink beer, porter, stout, Burgundy, or a little sweet champagne alwaj-s In moderation and unless you have been In the habit of taking something of the kind at dinner, I do not ndvise stimulants, as they frequently inter fere with the digestive processes and often are the cause of truly hideous skin diseases. Moreover, it Is fnr more charming to see our women total abstainers, to say nothing of the moral side of the question. Avoid all trying work or reading by artificial light. Before retiring j-ou will, of course, take your warm hitli and scrub as directed in the first Beauty Talk without reference to the bath here advised in the morning. Sleep all you can. Arrange your life so that you will gvet JJie most rest for your body nndmind possible. Cultivatccalmneas and placidity and determine to disprove the old English axionV that "a sweet temper mid a bony woman never dwell under the same roof." Crysrnljizlni: Fruits. Few confections' arc mure delicious than candied fruits, and.tco, few sweetmeats are more expensive. sixty cents a pound being the regulation, price, and a pound represents a very small amount. They can be prepared at about half thecost, how ever, at home, if rW is taken. Cherries, currantsnlne apples, apricots, pears and peaches are best experimented upon. The twc former can be used iu bunches; the pineapple is sliced across the fruit, eacli piecq bqing a gcod quarter Inch thick; apricots are cut on one side and the stoue slipped out. while pears aud peaches are halved, and, of course, peeled Make a good thick syrup, pound for pound, adding for each pound a small cup of water Boll tfco sugar first, then drop in the fruit, and when they have boiled cIlmt take out anJ drain from the syrup If the cherries are stoned (the red ox hearts make the finest, being not so sweet as the white aud without the rank tart ness of the sour red ones), it is nice to string them ou a biomn splint as they can be more cleverly handled Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar, lay on a sieve, aud set the fruit in a warm oven. I used a wiie dish, such as our grandmothers kept fruit in, set within an other dish to catch the synip. In two hours turn the fruit, spriukle with sugar again. Keep this up unul the sugar has all dripped out On no account have tin oven hot, as it will dry Uie fruit ant leave it like so much leather. And, of course, the fruit must be laid in siuglt rows when drj-ing. When the juice has evaporated and the sugar has formed a glazed surface, put a way In buxeojn a diy place. Waxed paper should be laid between each layer. A bureau drawer is as good a place as any to keep them. KENNET WOOD. In Advance. "Don't you think the man who marries for money is a fool?"

Tho finishing touch nowadays to tho room which Is devoted to one's guests, is the verstf Intended to invito or inspire sweet repose. Tho couplet is etched, embroidered or painted, preferably tho latter, In blue, Bil vcr or gold, upon a satin ribbon about four Inches wide aud long enough to take the lines. Gold lettering on a whlto ribbon ie tho style of this little conceit which I have in mind, and which hangs over the head of a Louis XV bed, which is resplendent In em broidered linen sheets and a covor of gui puru spread over rose. That It Btands In a .room belonging to a very smart lady , in deed, is a matter, perhaps, of little im portance. The lines, which are worth copy ing, read as follows, verbatim ct literatim: Sleep, sweet, within this quiet room, O thou , whoe'er thou art, Aud let no mournful yesterdays Disturb thy quiet heart Nor let to-morrow scare thy rest With dreams of coming ill; Thy Maker Is thy changeless friend, His love surrounds thee still. Forget thyeclf and all tho world; Putouteach feverish light; The stars are watchlnjr overhead. Sleep, sweet. Goodnight! Goodnight! Tho lines are very pretty and most ap propriate, one Is bound to acknowledge. As a matter of fact, they were written by a slater of Mr. C. P. Huntington, Mrs. Gates, whose verses, "Your Mission," were very popular at one time. Possibly one may have- a happy knack at rhyming and be able to icdlte lines that pleafe ono better, or, failing In this, there is the "Book on Quotations," which may furnish forth verses grave, gay, or sooth ing, as thu case may bo. The mistress of n largo mansion, where bedrooms are num bered by tho hulfscore.may find occupation for many an idle hour in preparing these little banners we will call them, until some one has invented a better name. The "t.me-card" Is another necessity in every well appointed gue6t chamlior. This, too, may be prepared in a Wmilar way to tho banner already described. Upon a delicate shade of ribbon, with gold paintor India Ink, make tho three words at the left sldoin odd, stragglingleaters, "Breakfast," "Luncheon," "Dinner," one under the other, leaving a lino opposite each on which you afterward add the t.mo of each meal. In a country house it is well to add "Mails Receivod," "Mails Sent." , Any little ornamentation in the way of a spray of flowers, a cupid, or a flight of birds is easily added with bniFh or needle. The time-card can bo suspended from the wall by a little brass rod and chain, or simply by a brass ring, skillfully concealed by a bow of ribbon. The artistic housewife, will, of course, have due regard to the color motif of her room, and make all extra touches in the way of time-cards and banners correspond. ELEANOR LEXINGTON .

TOLD TBEIRAGEBYPENKIES Birthday Reception For the Benefit of St. Michaels and All Anrjels. Mr. and Mrs. Barber .Will Receive Their FrlondH on Their Yacht. Spring Market at Metzorott. Tho birthday reception given at 8 o'clock last evening at No. 732 Twenty-first street f or thebenef it of S t. Michaolsand All Angels was a most enjoj-uble entertainment to all present. The attendance was good not withstanding the bad weather and the heartiness with which all entered into the spirit of the occasion was all the more marked on that account. The house was decorated witli flowers of every description whllea mosthospitable appearanco was effected by having large open fires brightly burning in each room. Each person on entering deposited with tho doorkeeperthe small silk bagprevlously sent them for this purpose and in which the exact number of pennies corresponding to their respective ages had been deposited. This plan was what gave the name of birth day reception to the entertainment. Tho success of the evening, aud in fact tho entire entertainment, was due to the untiring work In this respect accomplished by Miss Kathcrine Lowndes and the Misses Murray and Edith Thomas. The Ice cream tablo was in charge of Mrs. Nesbit. as sisted by Miss Roy. Miss Evans and Miss Capcrton had charge of the cake table, and Mrs. Evans presided at the straw berry table. These ladles had a general supervision of the flower booth. During tho evening a most elaborate and enjoyable musical programme under the direction of Mr. Reed was rendered. Among those who took part were Mr. Hub bard T. Smith, who sang a number of times; Mr. Keeling, who, with Mr. Thomp son and Miss Addie Klemschmldt, were tho other vocalists of the evening. Miss Dc Shields' instrumental music was greatly enjoyed, as was that of Mr. Reed. Mrs. Graham Bell is at present iu Paris, where she has placed her daughter at school for the summer. They will remain abroad for the summer. Miss Alice Wilcox entertained a small party of her friends on Monday evening at her home in this city. Miss Adele Vultc naB left her apart ments at the Washington Club and Is now at the Milton Flats. Miss FranccB Courtney Baylor, who has been in Washington for a visit to Mrs. Lomax, left the city on Saturday last for her home, near Winchester, Va. Mre. Otis Bigelow and family have closed their house on Eighteenth street and arc now at her country place near Washington. Mr. andMrs.A.L. Barber arrived yesterday in their yacht Sapphire, accompanied by their son and daughter. It is their in tention to receive their friends informally J ..itiillfFiH m feiWfel tfT, at-:.tuv.r.r:! ,: i"Pii this afternoon on hoard the yacht from 3 to 7 o'clock. The Sapphire will be anchored near the Aqueduct bridge. No formal invitations have been issued for the occasion, but it is hoped by Mr and Mrs Barber that all of their friends will be present to greet them and enjoy the hospitalities of the yacht. The Sapphire's launches and small boats will be in waiting at Uie Columbia Athletic Club boat house, at the foot of Thirty second street, through the courtesy of the club, to convey guests to aud from the yacht. There will be a Spring Market held at Metzerott Hall on Saturday, by the Daisy Chain Guild, for the benefit of the Chil dren's Hospital. Tlie preparations for tins event assure in advance a great suc cess.. A similar entertaluraent, the first of the kind to be given in Washington, was held at Metzerott Hall several years since, and scored one of the greatest successes of the season. Brido "Went Down a Endder. An Ansonia, Conn., dispatch In the New York Sun says: Frank J. Baldwin and Miss Ella Mahan, who were married here last night, decided to cheat the guests of the fun of throwing rice and old shoes at them. After the wedding supper the young couple retired to prepare for their journey. The guests stood at the front of the house with handfuls of nee and a numerous as sortment of shoes, and were surprised soon to see the carriage driving out of the yard with the j-oung couple in it, and too far away to lie reached by the bombardment. After donning her traveling costume the bride went to her bedroom window at the i rear of the house and gave a signal, j Slowly a long ladder was raised, and the i bridegroom's head appeared. He took her handbag and dropped It into the hands of the coachman. Then the bride squeezed herself through the window, and, steadied by her husband, descended safely. They got in a carriage and drove out by a side entrance to the grounds. Talked -with Their Feet. I know a stntionmaster and his wife who had become so expert at reading and working tho telegraphic instrument that they could sit, ono ou either side of the firenlace. and converse to each other quite easily bj- the action ot the foot, the position indicating tho movements or the needle.

Here are some odd opinions concerning the force of the electric current, given by Dr. C. F. Chandler, before the Columbian School of Mines: "A very interesting mis apprehension, which exists in the lalcda or many people Is one concerning the Mtal dangers which lurk In the pressure of , say. 1,1)00 volts. The newspapers often tell of a man who has been killed from such a pressure, whereas, in fact, such a pressure alone could not kill a bumming turd. I have frequently caught In my hand -parks pos sessing an electro motive power of 100,000 volts without feeling anything more than a very slight barn.
