WOMAN AND HOME.
HOW HOUSEKEEPING MAY BE CON
A. Few Ucalth Hint. Noeltl- or Fash
Ion Something for Young Ladles
to Do The New Orleans Ex
lEben E. Rerford In Western Plowman.
Housekeeping should be couducted on sys
tern. No business is ell conducted without
ysteinaticru!ei which are strictly adhered
to. Housekeeping is as much a business as
bookkeeping, though I think but few house
keepers ever look at it in that light.
There should be a place for everything, to
begin with. A great deal of ition, of
loss of time, and extra labor, from
not having things where they long. If
you are in a hurry to find any thi..g it gen
erally happens that it can't be found; or, if
found, it has to be hunted for. This can all
be avoided by forming the habit of putting
each article in it proper place, and keeping
it there, when not in use. It is an easy mat
ter to do this when once that habit is formed.
Do not allow yourself to lay anything down"
wherever it "comes handy to do so." If
your kitchen has not convenience of the
kind required, make them, or get them
made. Insist on having a set of small
draners in which to keep spices etc., near
your mixing table. Have these drawers
labeled plainly. Have a place by itself for
such vessels as you use in baking and other
cooking. Never let these vessels get into
any other department. Have a place near
the mixing-table and the flour bin or barrel
for sugar, and salt, and raUins in short for
everythiug used in cooking. This concen
trates your labor; there will be no necessity
fur running here and there for what is
wanted. When you want anything, you
know where it is. Let the idea of a place
for every thing and everything in its place
be carried out in all departments of the
To reduce housekeeping to a system, you
must arrange your work after a plan, and
let this plan be adhered to. Take it up in an
orderly way not, as so many do in a
jumble, doing a little of this now, an 1 then
a little of that, or trying to do a half dozen
things at the same time. Get one thing out
of the way before you begin another. Think
your work over and decide the orier in
which it can done to the best advantage,
and, having ascertained from experiment,
what that order is, make it the daily pro
gramme. In a short time vou will see house
bold matters moving like clock-work. There
will be no clash, no confusion.
In doing housework, it should be the aim of
the housekeeper to saTe time and labor, as
fa- as possible. Where one step will answer
never take two. By having things in their
proper place, and knowing ju-t what is to
be done, at a particular time, you can econ
omize time and labor to a great extent. I
know of women who will make half a
dozen trips to the cellar where one woull be
sufficient if they worked as well with their
beads as they do with tbeir bands. They do
sot take the trouble to think, before going
to the cellar or store-room for one thing,
that teveral other things will be required
from that place. All might be brought at
the same time, and thai much time saved
and many steps. It pays to think these
The kitchen should bo roomy. No woman
can do housework well in small, cluttered
up rooms. Let it bo arranged as conven
iently as possible. Have a pump
from the cistern and, if possible, the well,
also. Have a good stove, and one large
enough to do all the work required of it
without crowding. The wood-shed should
be convenient, and there should always be a
supply the. Good wood, too. Every
housekeeper should insist on that. If the
cellar U not convenient, have as much at
possible of the articles which would naturally
be kept there, stored in a room on the same
floor as the kitchen, if there is one that ca
be used for such a purpose, to avoid climb
ing stairs. Keep supplies of table linen,
towels, etc, in a chest or bureau where they
will always bo at hand.
Have a room for the accommodation of
dirty clothes, and teach the children to put
all their soiled garments there when they
are exchanged for clean ones. This will re
move the necessity of making a trip to every
room on washing-day. Insist on having the
occupants of each room strip the bed cloth
ing from the beds and hang before the win
dow to air, on arising. If this is done, by
the time the morning work is out of the way
in the kitchen the chamber-work can be at
tended to. By making it the rule to havt
verything in its proper place, other mem
bers of the family than the housekeeper can
find needed ai tides readily, and without
throwing everything into confusion.
Let the bill of fare be varied from day to
day. When you get hold of a good receipt,
put it in a scrap-book, which should be. kept
in every kitchen. In a short time you will
have a large number of receipts which you
can rely on, and reference to this will sug
geet variations in the daily food. Never ad
mit anything bat a tested and leliable re
ceipt. Every kitchen should have a set el
measures and scales for use in making cakes
and other articles which must be com
pounded carefully and accurately as regard
Have everything about the bouse as
"handy" as pcssible. If you can't get the
"men-folk'." to help you in making thing!
"handy" and convenient, study out what
you want dene, and when yea have decided
Ju4 what you want, set a carpenter at work
for a day. The head of the family will
quite likely prefer to hire a man, rathei
than "potter" at the work himself, and it
will be much better for you t have him dc
so, for you can make the carpenter carry
out your ideas, and sometimes the me
folks" won't do that, thinking tliey knew
better what should l done than you do.

A Solution Suggested.
Xew Orleans Times-Democrat
Many young women, restless and dissatis
fied in their father's houses, chafing under
the restrictions of narrow means hich
barely sutlice to keep them in the idleness
suppo-d to be demanded by their social
position, jet unable to obtain employment
consonant with that position an J their as
sumed mental ability, might find in the
course suggested a solution of tbeir woes.
Let them illustrate the much-vaunted value
of co-operation by putting their labor, theii
only capital, into the family partnership.
They can find outside no productive invest
ment for it; let them make it conservative.
The services they would perform have a
recognized pecuniary value which tbey
would lie justified in demanding, and though
the immediate gain in money may not seem
large, they will find by comparison with the
average wages received by young women
who have their board to pay that they cleat
quite as much. But the immediate gain it
not the greatest advantage of this plan. The
economic reforms they would naturally in
troduce would still further expand the
family income, and possibly lay the founda
tion for a rmanent improvement of for
tune. It is pleasant to think bow many nuisat Jet
would be abolished if it once became fashion
abla for young ladies to supplant the
ignorant housemaids and cooks.
Kdurating Young Ladles.
IXew York Cor. Syracuse Journal.
I have beard my mother say that, when
she was a pupil of the famou Mrs. Emma
Willard at Troy, every girl in the school
was obliged, in turn, to reseive the other
pupils and teachers, as though they were
her guests. What an ordeal for a young
girl to pass through; but the severe criti
cisms of Mrs. Willard (a lady accustomed
to the highest society at home and abroad),
her ideas of dress, deportment per
sonal grace, etc., were invaluable.
Why, do not our teachers of girls
attend more to the personal polishing oi
their pupils, and give them les finish in the
"ologies," physics and the dead languages)
Why not inaugurate classes in walking, run
ning, leaping, etc, to make young women
walk with an airy grace! You know that
the dress reformers talk of the bondage ol
women's petticoats, etc Well, there is a
good deal in it yet a woman can dress sensi
bly, and be within the bonds of fa-Li n. too.
Pardon this sermon on the art of walking
well for women. Just notice the gait of our
sisters, when you are next in the street Nc
two walk alike. You will find it an amus
ing, possibly an instructive diversion.
A Vagary ot the Toilet.
One of the vagaries of the toilets of fash
ionable women nowadays is the adoption by
many of some distinctive feature of attire
which, unconspicuous at the beginning, soon
becomes remarked by continued and un
swerving repetition. One leader of society
is never seen without a bunch of lilies of the
valley as a breast knot In summer or
winter, on tue promenade or in the ball
room, through all the passing fashions in
flowers, tLtee tiny waxen bells are her un
A well-known belle affects white costumes
at evening entertainments to the exclusion
of all others, and another wears at every
ball a small bird in her hair the color of its
plumage matching or harmonizing with her
costume. At Richfield last summer a Phila
delphia girl, a blonde with a peculiar
creamy complexion, distinguished herself by
her black toilets. Tulle, face, silks, satins
and velvet were taxed to aid the variety,
but the hue was the same dead, unrelieved
black and thanks to her own beauty and
her dressmaker's cleverness the caprice was
not fatal to the effect
Matrimony and Wealth.
Chicago Woman's World.
"How many women out of every 100 would
reject the money bribe in an offer of mar
riage!'' asks a correspondent A very large
percentage of them. Our feirls brought up
to regard fasL ion and display as the crown
ing triumph ,t life might be expected tc
look for wealth in a hu.band as of the first
importance. And they really think they do
so regaid it until their affections are
aroused; then it is utterly forgotten. Nay,
more, the poverty of a lover nine times out
of ten S3 operates on the sympathies of the
girl as to increase her affections and induce
her to take all sorts of imprudent risks for
his take. Of cour.-e there are women who
eventually sell themselves in marriage, not
only for great wealth, but for the smaller
bribe of a simple support; but they do not
do so until after such struggles as prove to
them that hearts are valueless 21 this wooden
world. Nor would many of them do so even
then if their chances for making their own
support were as good as men have.
A Peclded Improvement.
London Cor. Manchester Courier.
The class which was formerly the most
wre'ehed next to needle women was that of
"lodging-house slave." But here there is a
decided improvement Twenty-five yean
ago a lodging-house servant would be kept
up till any hour at night to bring the lodgers
their supper, and would rarely get a holiday;
now the usual stipulation made by a girl,
when engaging herself, is that she shall not
be expected to answer the bell after 10
o'clock nt night, or be required to rise until
6 o'clock in the morning, and that she shall
have alternate Sunday afternoons at her
own di-posaL The poor girl's life is tbui
The cause of this improvement is that there
is less competition for employment among
women of the working classes than wat
formerly the case, and this enables them to
make better terms for themselves. There
being less competition is probably due partly
to the opening of new occupations to women
and partly to emigration.

At the Imposition.
New Orleans Cor. Inter Oceaa.
In the woman's departments we found
much to admire, ani our disiosition to criti
cise disappeared before its general success
and excellence. It is plain that the women
all over our country are rapidly learning
not only their rights, but their ability to ex
cel men in the creation of the beautiful, ani
to equal them in useful inventions, and the
successful conduct of the ordinary business
of life. Wo found southern women who
managed factories, stores, and plantations,
and took good care of inefficient husbands,
dependent brothers, and helpless children.
What struck us particularly was the ex
hibit by the colored women. We thought it
superior indeed to that of certain of our
northern states to which white women have
contributed so much labor, genius nd
money. It will hardly do, we thought to
doubt longer the canacitv for improvement
of the colored people of "the south. We saw
a steam engine made wholly and entirely by
a poor ignorant black man. If these men
and women without training and education,
can accomplish such results in what will they
come short of the whites in thit pro-perous
future which tbeir own .udustry and
capacity may bring them!

CAUSED BY IMPROPER TREATMENT
AND LACK OF ATTENTION.
Bow Headache Is Often Occasioned
Perspiration and the Remedy Therefor
Hut Water Cure Discomfort off
the Conventional Shoe.
Chicago News Interview.
"Improper treatment of the feet and lack of
attention to their needs Is the cause of njany
disorders and nervous affections," remarked
a physician the other day to a young school
teacher who bad applied to him to get relief
for "cold feet and headaches" "Now, the
person who has cold feet is almost sure to
have a headache," he continued, "for tbe
fact that the feet are cold shows that
the circulation is weak. The blood
not circulating freely in the extremi
ties crowds into the upper portion of th
body, and the pressure on the blood-vessels
of the head, of course, occasions headache.
Feet that are almost constantly cold tend
to cause congestion of the internal organs
The blood-vessels ot these cold feet become
narrowed by the lack of flow of tbe vital
fluid to them, thus perpetuating and in
creasing the difficulty. Those who are
troubled in this way should take plenty of
exercise in the open air and soak their feet
in warm water every night This counter
acts the tendency to congestion, enlarges th
vessels and helps permanently to relieve the
feet of then- special tendency to coldness.
"Feet that perspire and emit a bad odor
should be washed every night too. After they
have been bathed a2 per cent solution of car
bolic acid should be applie L The stockings,
too, should be changed daily and the boots
should have inner soles that can be taken
out each day and likewise dipped in a 'J per
rent solution of carbolic acid. The reason
that this process is necessary is that the bad
odor is due to microscopic organisms and
the acid kills them. Tbe soldiers of the Ba
varian army are required to bath their feet
every day, and rub them with a pomade
composed of two parts of salicylic acid in
100 parts mutton tallow, to prevent per
spiration. Each soldier is provided with
twenty-nine grammes of this pomade.
"Most feet can be kept soft and healthy
by soaking them in wat -r as hot ai can be
borne before retiring, using ammonia and
soap freely. They should then be rubbed
briskly with a rough bath towel, and
glycerine, mixed with an equal part of
carbolic acid 2 per rent strong, applied to
them. Mutton or beet tallow will do In
stead ot the glycerine.
"Another thing that helps keep the feet
cold is the conventional shoe. Even if the
shoes you wear are large enough, which
they very seldom are, they would pull the
muscles of tbe feet awry, pinch up the bones
in one place and let them spread out in
another until they could have no natural
action, and, consequently, the circulation is
interfered with. Yes J03. I know,"
the physician added, testily, as the)
young lady opened her mouth in a
mild protest "that a loose shoe
could be quite as uncomfortable as a tight
one. I know tbe shoe ought to fit as closely
as the stocking, and that a loose-fitting shoe
is quite as .productive of corns and di com
fort as one that pinches But where it should
be tight young lady, is around the ankle,
across the instep, around the arch of the
foot and tbe heeL But the front half should
have a large sole and a loose upper. Then
the bones in that pari of your foot will have
plenty of room for movement With the
kind of shoes you are now wearing these
bones are all squeezed together and the
joints almost telescoped. Of course your
feet can't help being cold. No; I cant give
you any medicine for it Get yourself a
sensible pair ot boots take care ot your
feet as I have advised you, and you'll have
no more trouble.

Hsase-Cleanlng Heduced to a Science
The Csual Discomfort Avoided.
Down in the pretty town of Mount
Vernon, Ohio, hou-e cleaning has been re
duced to a regular systematized business
and the housekeeper there are now contem
plating the season of sweet springtime with
that dread of impending calamity which
makes every Pittsburg housekeeper's heart
grow chill and heavy when tbe buds begin
to swell and the violets to bloom. As tbe
story goes, a well-educated man from Eng
land settled there, and tried to get employ
ment, but in vain. Time 1 were dull, and his
prospects grew darker and darker. As It
happened, one day he heard two la lies dis
coursing on how difll.-ult it was to get help
and how "girls" would per ist in getting
"run down." and needuur a rest and STolna
Home to tneir mothers or their sisters until
house-cleaning was over. This gave bim an
idea, which he put in practice at once. He
secured some competent help and went into
tbe hou-e-cleaning business which has
grown and flourished, and is pronounced by
every woman who can afford to employ him
a "Godsend and a blessing."
With a competent corps of assistants h
will undertake to clean a house and leave it
in first class order in a day, unless paintini
or something of that sort is required, which
takes mora time. They will takt
possession early in the morning,
and by night the ceilings have beet
calcimined, the walls have been papered,
the carpets have been renovated and put
down, the furniture has been cleaned and
polished, and so quick and deft have the
workers become that housekeepers gaze at
them in amazement And, as we are told
the firm is responsible for any damage 01
loss, and are so thoroughly reliable and
trustworthy that the mistress of the mansioi
can go away on a visit and come horns to a
house thoroughly cleaned and renovated
from garret to cellar.
If carpets are to be changed, or turned
around, or pieced, or mended, it is dona
Curtains are washed and put up, blinds are
hung, mattresses renovated, bed-clothes an
washed, the cellar cleaned, in short every
thing in the way of a thorough house-cleaning
is done up with neatness and dispatch by
competent, trained hands who know exactly
what to dn and how to do it in the shortest
possible time and at reasonable rates suet
as plain, every-day people can afford to pay
for being spared the yearly pull-up and drag
out, and haul-over with all the attendant
discomforts and disgusting details incident
to tbe ordinary style of house-cleaning.
Anecdote of Ex-Senator Ilruce.
Ben: Perley Poore In Boston Budget
Blanche K. Bruce, whose signature as reg
istor of the treasury now graces; every na
tional bank bill, was very popular while h
was in the senate, although he is of Africai
descent Unobtrusive, attentive to busines
and modest, he conquered the prejudices
against his race and was treated witl
marked courtesy by his associates. One day
after he had been a senator for two years 01
more. Senator Bogy, the aristocractic d
scendant of one of the old French families
of 8t Louis took a seat by bis side, saying
"Mr. Bruce, I have a bill here I want you tc
vote for. It is one in which I have a great
personal interest It has nothing politic,
in it Look at it and tell me what yoi
Bruce laughed as he said: "Senator Bogy,
I hope we shall arrange this more satis
factorily than our last business transaction.1
"Our last business transaction! What di
you meani" "Don't you remember meeting
me before my comigg to the senate!'
"Most decidedly no.w'"I think I can ref resl
your memory, senator. Some twenty yean
ago you were one day running down Olive
street in a hurry to catch a steamer. Yoi
were carrying a very heavy valise. Th
day was verr hot Don't vou remember
the colored boy who came up and offered U
carry the valise down to the levee for 1
quarter! You ran along with the boy.
Soon tbe wharf dock was reached. Tbi
boat was just swinging out You ran anc
jumped on board. You called for tbe valise.
The colored boy put the valise behind hit
back and called for bis quarter. You
hunted, fished out a quarter and tossed ii
ashore; but the gap was too wide to tost
tbe valise. The captain had to stop the boat
and back up before yon could getyoui
valise. Do you remember that P "Well,
should say I da" "I was that colored boy."
A Queer ws Item.
A very funny item of news was tele
graphed from London a few days ago. Ii
stated: "Society is greatly exercised ovei
the sulci ie of a young Englishman whose
name is for tbe present concealed from the
press. He was recently married, and lately
lost $250 000 gambling at Monaco." Ut
name is "concealed from the press" eh! Ii
this country, in a case of that kind, tbe
press would be the first to get hold of hit
name. It would be as impossible to keep hit
name concealed from tbe press when society
was exercised over his suicide, as it would
bo to dam Niagara if not more so.

A Cowboy's Whip.
New York Sun.
"The hilarious cowboy has tastes which
we are constantly endeavoring to cultivate
and satisfy. Here is the latet effort in that
line," said a Chambers street dealer in horse
jewelry. He held in his hand a peculiar
whip. There was a metal stock seven inches
long, in the butt of which was a heavy
whistle. Pulling out tbe whistle, he revealed
a capacious match safe, and when he let go
of the whistle a spring popped it back in
place, where t closed the match safe. Around
the stock was a short throng of hieing
leather which made a loop just large enough
to hold two fingers of the cowboy's hand.
The other end of the stock . terminated in a
tapering rubber half an inch in diameter at
tbe thick end and a qui rtor of an inch a
foot away, where there was a little loop. A
steel spring ran through the rubber to give
it strength Two feet of heavy leather about
the size of a sewing machine band was
drawn halt through the loop, thus forming a

tity produced is small and the prices so high

bloonu in May and June. The Sowers an
on trees that average about six feet high,
which are not only planted in rows, bnt are
tended zealously from autumn till midsum

plucked before sunrise, sometimes with,
sometimes without the calyx, but
only in such quantities as can be distilled,
on the day that they are plucked.
Tbe still is a plain tinned apparatus from
which a long curved tube is directed
through a tub of water, and into a large
bottle. Tbe still stands on a stone hearth
and usually in the shade of trees near a run

The stills hold from twenty-five to fifty
pounds of roses, which are covered with
twice that quantity of water and boiled halt
an hour. The distilled liquid that passe
over into the bottle is allowed to stand,
when the attar rises on the surface and b
skimmed off, the water ultimately being
sold as ro-e-water at Constantinople. Tbe
attar is kept in copper cans and the rose
water in bottles.
A rose tree is at its best at its fourth year,
an acre of 4-year-old trees producing from
one to two tons ot flowers, and 7,000 pounds
of flowers producing one pound of attar.
Much depends on the spring weather, as
rains and f rost illy affect the bloom. In
very sunny seasons 2,ft00 pounds have pro
duced a pound of attar. Every peasant dis
