There are a eofa and chairs of in luth wlach have not yet acquired the individuality which even furniture gains fiom being sot in families, but look just as little at borne as they did in the rooms of the dealer in the neighboring city.

We rind much elaborate fancy work in the hni of titlies and otumaiLS, and a sofa pil low so bright and fresh that one knows it iM-vcr harbored an aching head or tear-Matin-d eyes. On a liht stand in one corner rests the givat family Bible, in black and gold. It is a "show '-volume, aud since the day it w as brought home it has only been opened w hen it was carried into the hall for the use of the minister on funeral occasions, and when a writing master who once lioarded here wrote in flourishing hand the family record. The blessed contents, we know, are the same, but otherwise it is not half so val uable as the old leather covered Imnk in the sit ting room w hich -Father ltk," but of which the rest have grown ashamed. This has fig ured at family worship for a hundred years, and, within, three generations have recorded theu births, deaths and marriages, not in tlie round, meaningless, uniform hand of the writing master, but in tho cramped style which sjK'aks of lingers miuccustomed to the j,vn and stiff from holding the plow. On a lower shelf of this stand we find ranged rows of daguerreotypes. Here is the most attractive feature of the whole room. We see ":a and ma liefore marriage" and "pa aud ma alteinarriage;"' babies of all descrip tion:-; little girls in long pantalets and mitts, and little boys in blouses, white undertleeves and belts; voung ladies in striped silks, cut iow necked and w ith their hair in curtains; young men with their throats swathed in yai ils of cravat, evidently to relieve the pain occasioned by tlieir strangling collars, and with the ends of their hair tucked under with much precision, whilo on tho top it rears itself into an astonishing crest. There are women w ith cats and fronts covering their own beautiful white hair; old men with seamed faces, and we find one ghastly like ness of the dead. W e recognize some of these, grown older now; the fresh, undeveloped cotmten.mces have taken on lines of iiatience and decision in some cases, in other cases have grown hard and disagreeable.

VurnlsMns; the Laundry. 1 Every home should have a laundrv seuamtA from the kitchen. It should be furnished with a stove, stationary tubs, a line for dry ing clothes in bad weather, ironing table, and a closed closet for holding irons, ironing blankets, etc Besides the stationary tuba, there, should be provided three buckets, a movable tub of tho smallest size, two large tin pans, two small ones, one tin pail of medium size, one large dipper, one large and one small basket and two wooden spoons'. It is wise to paint "Laundry" on each of these, and to forbid their being taken into any other part of the house. There should also be large and small clothes bars. The closet should contain a good supply of clothes pins, bags for strain ing the starch in and for holding small pieces w hen they arc being boiled, boxes of starch and gum arable, a bottle of kerosene, of washing fluid and of blueing, a knife, a small cushionf ul of pins, a shallow tray of clean sand, a lump of beeswax done up in cloth, ironing blankets and sheets, a bag of pieces of clean old muslin, a sku-t board, a Email board about eight inches wide by eighteen long for ironing shirt bosoms on, a tin clothes sprinkler, largo and small clothes lines, one polishing iron and half a dozen irons. If they have not movable handles, at least four well padded but not too thick iron holders should be kept, so that a cool one can be taken when ever the one in use becomes heated through. As two persons are often ironing at the same time, four w ill not be too many. The holders should not be any thicker than Is needed to protect the hand, as reaching around too thick a one is very tiresome. It is a question whether or not it is desirable to use washing machines and wringers. We have found some washerwomen who could be trusted with either; but when their use can be allowed they certainly save both time and work. Harper s ttazr. The Education of Girls. A writer in Tho Berlin Gegenwart has re cently freed bis mind on the subject of higher education for girls after a fashion that shows that this grave question is disturb ing the minds of German parents fully as much as it is vexmg the thoughts of Ameri can fathers and mothers. The triumphant schoolgirl" Ftnlks about Germany with all the geography, literature, science, natural history, history and art of the world at her fingers' ends to amaze and confound man kind. She is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge that bewilders her reason, a magazine of facts for which she can never have any use. The tendency in Germany, as in America, appears to be to pay especial attention to the acotiirement of foreign languages, to the neglect of the mother tongue. "I know young girls," says the writer in Tho Gegen wart, "who have well nigh mastered Kng- lish. French, and even Italian, and who can not write the simplest German letter without gross blunders of orthography and style, to say nothing of those precious commas, which are either put in when the letter is finished, or are conspicuous by their atisenee." Who does no know that the "high class" education of girls in America tends in this same direc tion? Here we nave to complain of the at tention paid to French and (ierman, to tlie exclusion of a mastery of English. Tho American 'girl is a natural liorn letter writer, and yet it is the exception to find a young Iadv graduate w-ho does not break down or ignore all rules of orthography and style, while punctuation is never thought of at all. Chicago ews. Tanking Children Vnequally. The habit of tasking the docile or wdliog child unequally, sometimes indulged in by tcusy parents, often leads to serious results and life-long regrets. The weary mother who casts about for help is not always discrim inating as to its sources so it comes, and the obedient child often gets too heavily bur dened, and that without reflection on the parent s part. It is right that they should help mother, but let it be an equal distribu tion of tasks as far as it ran be. When quite voung 1 saw this so forcibly illustrated in the family of a neighbor that 1 never forgot it. It so happened that the -good child was my favorite among several, and while I deprecated the situation in child ish fashion, 1 coulcs. not but admire her un selfish unconsciousness of it. Their means were limited and the mother was so occupied with maternal cares, and withal so easy in disposition, that her injus tice never seemed to occur to her as such. Indeed, she allowed things to take their course without much attention to the relative riirhts of the girls so that the work was done. The result was that the family drudge was early saddened in disposition, and finally broken in health; aud when a wife and mother herself, in later years, she realized the injustice that rendered her incomfieteiit to perform her own life-work efficiently. As proof of this ahe remarked to me owe with deep feeling that it might lie wrong, but she could not quite lorgive ner mother for al lowing it to be, nor feel just that affection for her which would have otherwise existed.

Washing fluid Dissolve one pound of soda in two quarts of water; add four quarts of clear limo water; stir, and when all sediment has settled pour off tho clear water. Ill one quart of boiling water dissolve three ounces of borax, and add it to six quarts of clear water; when cold add three ounces of carNui- ate of ammonia, pulverized ; atf soon as it is dissolved pour off into be ctt.les and cork tight ly. The alcove is one of the best washing fluids, and injures the clothes less than most. We, however, prefer the kerosene; it docs not in jure the clothes in any way, takes tho dirt out as if by magic, and leaves not the faintest trace of its odor on the clothes when dry. Harper s Eiiar.

Ask the people, ibey are competent witnesses. Kilt bouses in - Atlanta are buying B. B. B. in fire aud ten gross lots, and some of them buy as often as every two months.
