"Used to bo," said Mrs. Torrance. But they failed, and it is has boon shutdown for ten months." "Do you know of any ono who wants a girl," asked tho city cousin.

"So Cousin Shadraclt Suely la dead," he said. "Yes," said Emily quietly. "Did you like him?" "No," confessed the girl.

"It's a se cret, but I may toll you now.

They are a prepos sessing lot of gil 1?; well dressed, bright eyed, rosy cheeked and plump, who aro a great deal more Uko rural than city women in their habits and methods of speech. They know much more about tobogganing, skating, straw rides, homo coming, donation parties, sur prise parties and class meetings than about tho'theaters or tho signs and shows of Ibo town. A great many aro courted and wedded in the country and there settlo down for lire, but a student of this now element in business which is putting young giris side by side with, and oven above mon lathe stores and ofllces, has found that marriages between them and tho men they work with aro growing more and more frequent. Indeed bo says that a less proportion of thom grow into old maids than of factory girls or girls who don't work for a living. The men in charlo of tho largo shops and such establishments as the telegraph operat ing rooms declaro that the girls pick out tho smartest of tho men around them for their husbands, and do not, as la so of ton tho case with wemen who stay at homo, marry tho empty bends, drones, ?drunkards, or "bad eggs."

A FIELD FOR- ISIiOOUTION. ?ict'Aymen Should Take Lesson*) for tho Hcmcflr, ol'Their Coil SL'?fraiiouH, Thore Is a branch or tho profession of the elocutionist that seems,thus tar, liayJ6?|g?Si)odlhogra?pof thoub quit in quarters who aro ci ntiaually scour ing Ino town In quest of novelties. This may, however, bo duo to tho fact that it ls of so delicate a nature in it self that it sensitively shrinks from publicity. I knoW. 'that In' my own casent chanced upon lt by Occident. I found my flrst clow to it in a business prospectus, and oj?j^ofjl\\e first persons to: assure me thapojfi? ' Know nothing about it and had never heard of suoh a thing In his life was au eminent divino, who, I was subsequently convinced, was ono of those who proil?od most largely by it. 'For my parrara bo s?to, I carno to soo why a clergyman should be ashamed to admit that he Is laking lessons In elocution, certainly it is no crime against society or tho church for ^MflS^li?r to improve his methods of flM^^cal delivery. Actors rehearse their pans and painters make sketches and ^Studios for their plfltyuroB. Why a pul Tit expounder ?silo?id not make some pindar preparatloh for his sur .nous and lectures is not clear to mo, and that some of our beqt and most popular pul pit speakers do so is, it seoms to mo, simply a tiibute to their common sense. If they all did lt, it would bo to the benefit ot' their congregations, who havo nowadays to sit out a vast deal of poor speaking to got at the meat of the aorijii?|fi^e.livored Tor tholr good. ThertMrnG two w^ys in which our mlnisters*bmploy the elocutionist to improve thom as speakers. These might bo called tho direct and indirect. Tho direct consists in regular lessons In elocution, often .involving rehearsal of tho sormrm^il^elf. The Indirect consiots of einp?p^lliVg'tho export to liston to and crltici^^'itbo orator, so t hat by acquainting} litm with lus faults ho U warneu to avoid them. Th's sort of thing is ?ailed, I bel levo, "instruction In clorlca^r,eftdJng., Tho elocutionists mako a special feature, I am told, ol prayers, for ?tho Impressive reading of which many divines carofully prepare thomselvos. fA natural orator ? like Henry Ward' Beecher even did not disdain to occasionally employ an ox pert to listen to him and furnish him -villi a careful criticism of lus speak* ng. With this point in view it can bo mderstoodhow advantageous the couti ?el and assistance of the expert must ie to hundreds of preachers, who, no natter how largo their learning and volo their powers of analysts and com position may be, do not possess tho >rator?cal gilt of tho great Brooklyn Histor. Tho ability to write a sermon >y no moans guarantees tho ability to Io!'"cr it eloquently? as a great many people who go to church no doubt mow. Tho sooner the elocutionist gota his Ino work in among our literary mon :he better lt will be for them. If ibero iro any worse realtors or speakers ?xtaut than ttio average person who writes poetry and books 1 should not Uko to bavo to listen to thom. At tho recent authors' readings In this city I leard some or tho worst specimens of oratory from some of tho cleverest of >iir wielders of the pen, that I expect to hear in my lifo. All over town I rall in with mon of letters, who read Vii sorts of productions to mo willi a fascinatingly ridiculous absence of that grace of dollvery and expressiveness of Intonation that make a reading worth bearing. If only for tho sake of the friends whom they call upon to pass judgment on their compositions, these gentlemen should call upon tho elocu tionist for some assistance toward ameliorating tho torrors they incarnate when tho Ono frenzy or speech Is upon them. Ail An?cdota ol Horneo Greeley. When I was a cub-back in tho thirties-I was living with my mother ?ind stop-father In Brooklyn. One day I was sent over lo New York to deliver an Imposing stone lo the firm of Greo ley & Winchester, who were then pub llshlng Tho New \)Torld. I was told not to deliver tho Btono unless I got my money, When I arrived at Horaco Greeley's ofllce he Immediately ordered bis men to hoist tho stono to tho third story with a block and tackle, and it was hoisted. I had insisted with Mr. Greeley that I . could not leave tho 3lono without tho money, but he simply answered mo by saying, **My son, tho stono ls in the th lid story; how are you going to get it down? You come over Saturday and I will pay you for tho stone.I told him if I went back without tho money I would get a terri ble threshing, and which, by the way, I unquestionably got. I went back Saturday and Mr. Groo ley, wanted to put me oit again. I told him of tho beating which roy step father had given me. Ho soemed to doubt it, so ? pulled off my jacket and showed biro how blade and blue my back was. When he saw tho marka he said: "My GodI what a brute a man must bo to beat a child in that manner. Sit down. I'll got tho money, although I'll have to borrow it," In live minu tes ho returned with somo apples and ginger cako for me, and then he went out and was gone for an hour, when he appoared with tho money. When I re ceipted tho bill ho handed me $1, say ing: "This will take a little of tin pain out of your back, aud, if ever yoi want a friend and I can serve you come and seo me." I did not meo: Greeley again for seven years, when met him in Washington. I was n need of a friend then, and he intro Jr>ced mo to Henry Clay and Danie Webster, and did all he could to fur Iber my Intorests, which by the way was my first successful stepping Eton? In life. Women "Who Want Shoes. It Is an onay matter for an experien ced man to handle women who wan shoes. If she asks for a certain num ber bo will not go away and got tin size. Ile will take off her shoe am have a look at her foot, from which In can tell at a glance Just what sort of i shoo will flt her, Get one that \vii make her foot feol comfortable am that will look nice, and she purchase at onco. If you take her word for th number, the chances are that you wil be decelvod, for a woman has an un accountable objection to telling ho exact nnmber,even if lt ls in tho threes A groen dork soon loams this little pe cullnrlty aftor ho lins shown everythlnj In tho show to several who will no buy. Another rule with women is no to aliow them too much. Let them se several nice things and their choice i easy. If they aro aultod; but show then your whole stock and they want to se moro. I find that ladles aro not s given to oramping their feet as formei ly, so ns to make thom seem smalloi Young mis?es still do that, but womo of tho world aro not so willing to ir jure their feet.
