contains 1 Somelimes it seems
stuffed with love, tenderlness iandl

nothing but hair pins, and criowited
with a pyramid of hair coils anti
high top combs.
Like the month of .\pril, she is all
sunshine and showers. Manuy sa tear
of sorrow evaporates in tlle war:II
t light of a smile 'ere it has a cha;ncei
to fall; and many a bright smile is
suddenly quenched by some passing
cloud of sorrow-(lbnout the size of,
a blanket.) Griefs bubble up froitim
her bosom to burst in an at mos:phere
of joy. Like autunlnal flowerss"

She talks-somnetimes with her
eyes, and they" s5;-eak volulste's it

eloquent in her aetion.s, tand! graCt.tlt'l
in her moveltents. Ilhw tesIh.sr
and cruel is womtan! iWe ctan't nIt
derstaln it, lbut she is tendllelr as a
spring chicken, and tough as an ilhi
gander. She must be screened nre o
the hot sutnmer sun-sheltersed iiandl
protected front the stormns andl blast.s
of winter; and. yet, ift she niukl'es up
her mind to do it, she can, like an I
Eagle, gaze at the clear tnotday li
sun, and face a I)eceltntr ntorther.
Woman is as tender ;as thie tmeries I
of Heaven, her heart is as tsUch i
soften this, mwan's, as a hI;llanal is'
softer than a brickhat. lHer sym
pathies are as delicate as the do wnI
on the underside of an eagle's wing, II
and her love alpears as fre-sh andl
unfading amid the trials and sor t
rows of adversity, as an evergreen I
wreath encircling the brow ot' Old i
Winter-how devoted and tlovely is Y
woman, how universal is her admni- s
ration, how boundless her love; she l
will cling to the chosen object of her a
heart, with deathless devotion-she i
can't be severed without ssalpping
strings which do time nor art can
mend. She often perceives some. t
thing to love, whi!e others distnertn
nothing even to admire, and vhen
her affections are onut fastened ott
a fellow they stick like glue atd too
lasses in a busby head of hair.
How chikl-like is woman, a play
thing herself, she is fond of every
plaything in this world's great toy k
shop. How weak Is woman, and
yet how strong and terrible when a
arousedl 8he is as high as the

can blaze away like a volcano in
full blast, and burest up things like
an earthquake. But soon it's all
over-trobody killed-then she sof'tly
comes down from her towering rage,
and presently seems as well satisfiled
as a glutted alderman. Woman's
existence is mingled romantic ideal.
