MEN, WOMEN AND BOOKS.
The last regular meeting of the W. C. &
L. A. took placo on Wednesday evening,
when the life and works of Bhakspeare
were under discussion. An interesting
biographical sketch was read by Mrs. G.
B.Lyman, and selections from the writings
of the poet were given by the ladies of the
association. The regular meetings will be
suspended during the summer months, but
the study class will continue its English
literature under the direction of Mrs. Hud
Sous quiet earnest looking women 6eeui
to be, indeed, m their right place, as they
ait listening to the deliberations of the rcg
ular meeting of the Philadelphia Board of
Education. They neither possess nor de
mand any right of inquiry or of criticism,
but as the mothers of children whose schol
astic career is to be controlled by the legis
lation of the board, they are anxious to
know what is done, and by what means it
is accomplished. The silent presence of
these women brines every action to the
test of their opinion and practical experi
ence, must inevitably exert a potent though
unexpressed influence. Progress.
Fascia E. Durnktt nee Hodgson, au
thor ot "That Las9 o' Lowrie's" and "Lou
isiana," is described as a sweet, fascinating
woman and a most delightful companion.
She speaks of her books, of her stories, in
a frank way that is very refreshing. She
enjoys her popularity, she laughs over the
things that are said to her, Bhe does not
seem to have a bit of jealousy or envy in
her nature, and is a large-hearted, large-
natured, lovable woman, in every way en
tirely unconventional and ' original. She
has large brown eyes, fair complexion, rich
auburn-brown hair, and finely cut features.
In her beautiful hands one cannot see the
slightest trace of pen-and-ink labors.
The conference of Charties and Correc
tions, recently held at Case hall, in the
beautiful city at Cleveland, was a notable
gathering of philanthropic men and
women from all parts of the country, who
met in the interests of reform and charity,
to discuss measures of the greatest import
ance to the welfare of society. Insane
asjjums, prisons, reform schools, and other
like institutions were represented by men
and women of large experience, earnest
thought and unselfish dovotion to the
classes under their charge. The papers
and spirited discussing upon the various sys
tems and methods of reformatory work and
penaj discipline, and the care of the insane,
occupied the time of the conference for
three days, and the meeting proved te be a
conference . in the highest sens
of the word. The amelioration
of the condition of our weakest and most
dangerous classes. The insane, the indi
gent, and criminals, is a subject well worthy
of the best thought, and most earnost effort
of the age. The next conference will be
held in Boston, in July 1881.
THINK OF THE BOYS.
I wonder how many mothers are as care
ful of their boys as they are of their girls.
It seems to be a general belief that the
boys can take care of themselves. But
they cannot, for they are early exposed to
temptation. Girls are generally at home,
in the mother's company. But the boys,
when are they at home, as an average, ex
cept in the morning before school,
at the dinner hour, and at supper? In the
average family, in town or village, the boy
is away all day, except when he cats. How
much time there is at noon and
after school for Satan to find mischief
lor that boy's idle hands I How
many an evil scheme can bo patched
up in a few moments I Some days the boy
is noticeably absent from home, and anx
ious iuquiry is for the moment made; but
business soon takes the father's mind and
time, while housework or company absorbs
the mother's attention; and the little boy,
with so much time away from home, and so
little at home, is getting wound up in some
wicked older boy's scheme; and by-and-by
the shame of it is revealed. Is it a wonder,
then, so many boys wind up in an institu
tion? I exhort mothers to give up their
parties and company and excess of care
about the house, and even more important
things, if such sacrifice be necessary, in or
der that the boyg be properly cared for;
and that they bcgin, before it is everlast
ingly too late, to tako them into their
closest companionship, sharing all their in
terests as cordially as they do those of the
girls. The girls need not suffer hereby;
rather will they be blessed with the pres
ence of noble brothers in the home, whose
later career may be a part ot their own
pride and joy. Selected.

Snakes as Like DESTBOYEKaVThe loss of
life in India due to the ravages of venom
ous snakes is almost incredible. Yet the
disease which in as wily and deadly as the
deadliest India reptile, is winding its coil
round thousands ot people while the vic
tims are unconscious or its presence. It
has long been a hobby with incompetent
physicians to assume that consumption is
incurable after the formation of turberclcs
has begun; and in every case they fail to
effect a cure ct course turberclcs bad be
gun to form and they were incurable. The
records of medical science disprove any
such theory. On the contrary, cases of
lung disease which had been cured and the
patients tired forty aud fifty years in robust
health, post-mortem examinations showed
large cicatrices (scars) where the tubercles
bad been formed and removed. The tu
bercle8 are removed by absorption into the
blood. An efficient alternative, JJr.

Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Strcp. Rev.
Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Boston
Christian Freemen: We would by no
means recommend any kind ot medicine
wnicu we did not know to be good par
ticularly for infants. But of Mrs. Wins
low's soothing syrup we can speak from
knowledge ; in our own family it has pro
vep a blessing indeed, bv giving an infant
troubled with colic pains, quiet rest, and
parents unbroken rest at night. Most pa
rents can appreciate these blessings. Here
is an article which works to perfection, and
which is harmless; for the sleep which it
affords the infant is perfectly natural; and
the little cherub awakes as "bright as a
button." And during the process ot teeth
ing its value is incalculable. We have fre
quently heard mothers say they would not
be without it Irom the birth of the child
till it had finished with the teething siege,
on any consideration whatever. Sold by
all druggists. 25 cents a bottle.

to affirm that Fellows Hypophosphites,

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
120 BROADWAY NEW YOEK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that fer Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
