HOME TALES; The irrepressible servant question comes again to tae front. Theories and speculations do little good, when the stubborn fact remains that female help is becoming scarcer and more difficult to obtain year by year. The independent American girl who formerly "went out to help" in families on a social and intel lectual equality with herself, now wends her way to the shop and factory. The Irish, Norwegian and Swedish maidens have taken her place, but the brightest ana most capable, of tne last especially, are rapidly learning sewing and dress making. Ask them why, and they inva riably say that the work is so hard thev a. mm -m cannot sianu it. xney Dreas uown re- peatedly; and it must be granted that the kind of housework which, -in a few al . t momns Dreass aown tne naray young wedisn women, wno in their own coun try were accustomed to heavy field labor, must certainly be very arduous. It should be remembered that housework is not now what it was thirty or even ten years ago. Some kinds of work have generally gone out of the nousehold.like nutter and cheese making; but into their places are endless complication in methods of cooking, serving.laundrying, etc., has come. In a small and innocent looking house containing a small familv. there is work enough to occupy the time of two servants if the establishment is kept up in "style," as most of them aim to be. The first and greatest reason why it .. . ... mere is so mucn trouble about the ser vant question is that the work is too hard for any woman to perform long without giving out. This is what has driven Amerioan girls out of the kitchen They are neat, handy and intelligent, but they could not stand it; and, for- innately ior tnemselves, they have had sense and independence to get out of it. I here has been a great deal of senseless talk, emanating pnnoipally from men who know little about the practical aspects of the subject, bemoaning the fact that American girls desert their rightful sphere of pleasant and profitable household labor to exhaust themselves in factories and shops, while pleasant Places are waiting for them and gentle mistresses are holding out welcoming 1 JJ - vr ti ii . P uauus. wow ftu iuis sonnets very piausi- Die, out mere is no trutn in it. Each department of shop or factory work is simply in itaelf, and is immensely easier than housework in its present compli cated condition. The factory girl works hard 8 or 10 hours a day, but the rest of ner time is her own to rest, walk, read or amuee nerseii as sne will, and so with tne snop girl; while the servant girl usually rises at 4 or 5 o'clock in the morning and is at the call of the mistress and other members of the' family until 9 or 10 at night, having only such leisure even in 4he evening, as is granted by the mistress upon earnest application. Her work is not distinctly laid out for ber, as it is in any other vocation; but she must be at the persoual beck and nod of half a dozen people every day, besides sub mitting, as a rule, to unjust criticism ana iauif nnamg. Women are worse served than men, also, because, in their heretofore cramped, and unbusinesslike life, they have failed to learn the common busi ness principles on which a man employs - V - 1. : t r , . . r uwwjci iiu uu uib wurs ior mm. n the work is well done, that is enough; if poony, the workman is discharged he is not retained, followed about, nagged ana scolded Irom morning till night. The American girl would work in the kitchen, if she were required to do the work of only one woman, and that with in reasonable hours, and if she were treated as well in the household as in the shop. This is not to be construed as pointing to the other extreme which has occasion ally appeared in print of late that of placing the servant on a social equality with the lady of the house. A writer in the Woman's Journal went so far the other day asto declare that she would have no girl" in her house whom she could not introduce to her company, seat at her table, and treat as a social equal in every respect. This kind of talk quickly becomes the catchword of the ignorant, and easily obscures the truth. The Declaration of .Independence says that ail men are created free and equal. So they are in respect to the personal rights of life, liberty and the pursuit'of happiness; but in a social and intellect ual sense no law or declaration under the sun can make some people equal or com panionable. . The ordinary servant girl is not socially or intellectually the equal of the educated and refined lady. It is Eossible, in this country, for one who as been a Servant girl to go to school, educate herself, use the means of oulture as rapidly as she can attain them, and rise to a plane higher thau her mistress ever occupied; but by that time she would have found other and more con genial and remunerative employment than is to be found in the kitchen. There is no objection to any one's rising as high as she can, but as long as a girl is a ser vant it plays mischief with both her and her mistress to prate about an impossible social equality between them. What an idea that a ladv must take for a compan ion a girl simply because she pays her for doing her work! Men do ot do so. If a man hires a gardener, a coachman, or a salesman, he doep not necessarily invite him to his dinner h, balls or par ties. The wages, with courteous treat ment, are supposed to Le a fair equiva lent for the work done. So it should be with women. Bnt setting the question of social equality aside, there is another grave reason why ladies do not wish servants to sit at their table or be always in the family circle. A servant is not a natural member of the family. At table and by the fireside family matters are discussed and plans matured. To have another party pres ent throws restraint over the family cir cle, or if they talk freely they mav b are that all they aay will be reported at ' the next bouse. Tamil j I jars and skele tons should never be exhibited in this way. The family should be by itself when it chooses,and it never should give up this privilege by hiring someone to do the work. The work of the average household should be simplified or more servants should be employed to do it. While the work should be laid out and supervised by the mistress, the trirl should be left to work in her own way, as long as re suits are good. Sharp reproof and con tinual raging are irritating to any girl. There ought to be certain hours agreed upon during the day and evening which the girl shall have for her own, during which she is at liberty to do as she pleases without call or intrusion. The factory or shop girl has her hour at noon and her evening. Sometime during the day the servant should have as much, and at a regular specified time. Without such in tervals of withdrawal and repose no girl can long stand to "workout." This could be arranged in individual cases accord ing to the needs of individual house holds, and the mere recognition of the rightfulness of such a need would do much to win our smart American girls back into the field of .American house work. , Girls should also have neat and comfortable quarters assigned them. The position of servant would be less galling than now if one were sure of a room which has facilities for heating. A servant is a better servant who is able to have a bath in a warm room, and who is not obliged to sleep where the water lOUid ha RimrilifiAd nr mnr RArvnntu freezes in the ewer. Thoucrhtf ulness on the part of the mistress for a sirl's com fort goes far toward the securing of faith ful and efficient service. Given comfort able quarters, kind treatment, a gener ous interest on the part of the mistress for the well being of thjs maid, and the promt payment of fair wages for a fair amount of work, few cirls would think about the mooted question of social equality they would prefer the social companionship of their own age and class. But the servant feirls are growing scarcer, and when, with such a regime, good service cannot be secured, there is stui a way out of the difficulty, and in some instances it is the best possible. I Let the housewife put out the washing, I baking, and if need be, the sewing, and do the rest herself, training "her daugh ters to help her and to learn the womanly art of housekeeping. Captain Mayne Held. A dispatch from London announces the death of Captain Mayne Reid, the well known novelist, after a short illness. at his London residence. He was a na tive of the north of Ireland. He was born in 1818 and was descended from one of the pioneers of the "Ulster Planta tions." His father was a Presbyterian clergyman, and he fondly hoped that his son mignt follow in his footsteps. With that end in view he gave him a theologi- cal education and destined him for the church. It would have been far easier for the father to have tamed a tiger than to have controlled young Reid's inclina tion for adventure. The boy's brain was foil of romance. He thirsted after travel and deeds of daring. The prairie was more to his taste than the pulpit. One day in 1838 he throw away his books and started for Mexico. On his arrival in New Orleans he made direct for the haunts of the red man, and hunted and traded among the Indians of the Red river country and those of the Missouri. This wild kind of life delighted the young Irishman. He be came almost an Indian himself. He de veloped immense strength, could run like a deer and was a crack shot with the rifle. Witnessing and participating in many stirring affrays on the prairies and the forebts in the great west, he spent what he often said were the happiest and most joyous years of his life. He hunted the buffalo and the bear, and learned from his dark associates their method of finding their way unerringly through trackless, gloomy woods and boundless plains. No wonder that he acquired an immense amount of informa tion concerning the primitive customs of the Indians and gained an extensive knowledge of the scenery and character istics of the country. Five years were thus passed, during which he traveled through nearly all the northern, south ern and western states. Returning to civilized life, he settled in Philadelphia and began to write for American period icals. Drawing from his great store house of treasured reminiscences, he wrote most interesting articles for the press of this city and Philadelphia. Tne Mexican war broke out. and Keid obtained a commission in the United States army as second lieutenant in Bur nett's regiment of New York volunteers. He was present at the siege and capture of Vera Cruz and distinguished himself in several battles. At Chnrubnsco he led the last charge of infantry, and also tne forlorn hope at the storming of Cha- pultepec. , In this attack he was-shot down at the head of his men, and was reported, killed. He recovered, and had the satisfaction of being praised in more than one dispatch for gallantry. The war over, he resigned his commission. The next undertaking pi note that he was connected with was the organization of a regiment in this city in 1849. His ob- ject was to assist the heroio Kossuth,who was then fighting hard for the idependence of Hungary. Full of this idea, he went fo Pans and heard the unwelcome tidings that the efforts of the Hungarians had been crashed mainly by the aid of Russian armed in tervention, and that Kossuth had been forced to seek refuge in Turkey. Reid then went to London, took up his quar ters there and began to write stories of adventure and romance, iu which he narrated many of the episodes of his own life on the prairies and among the Mexicans and Indians. So fascinatine were the tales that issued from his facile pen and so entertaining to the youthful mind especially, , that his books were soon in great demand among the London publishers. They attained an immense reputation and a circulation commensu rate with their charm. Verv noticeable indeed is the deep and wide knowIdo-n of natural history displayed throughout aI1.biaritin88' It is hard to distin guish.lso, on which he was the best authority natural history, geology - or botany. As a writer of bov's books he was unsurpassed, and he has delighted the hearts of the juvenile population on both sides of the Atlantic and it is not an unsafe prediction tn aax Kia WOrks Will Continue to ha Annnn1r sn years hence at they are to day. He visited the United States on many occasions after he baeam fn mnna aa an author, at one time lecturing in the city m defence of Lord Byron, of whom he was an enthusiastic admirer, and at an other giving in a letter to the Herald some suggestions as to the management of horse cars, especially directed to their drivers.

Gold by the Ton. The Amador (Cal.) Dispatch sajs: One oi tne richest strikes known in the min ing history of California was made three miles south of this place last Saturday A pocket of quartz of almost unparalleled richness was found less iti&n 100 feet from the surface, in which was contained fiom $75,000 to $100,000, and about two tons m quantity. Muoh of this might oe termed onunks of gold instead of gold 1 -l a - m . ueaniig qnariz. Dome oi tnese pieces oi soiia gold were a bo at as heavy as a man could lift from the ground. The largest piece was an oval, sixteen by twenty-two inches, and six or seven inches thick. 1 his gold is almost black, and of the same character as the former rich strikes found in the same mine. Wo have no doubt that this is the richest find of gold ever known in the United States at one time. During Friday a ton of this gold freighted metal was taken out. It is not so rich as the gold streak taken out some time ago, but there is vastly more - f it. The value of this bonanza is estimated at from $50,000 to $100,000, The ledge is five feet wide, and the whole face of it is I neid together, as it were, by spikes of 8olil1 gold. Altogether 3000 pounds have I beeQ taken from this bunch of ore. and the end is not yet. The very rich streak rrom which this mass of free gold has been taken raages from an inoh or so up to twenty inches in width. The previous seam varied from the thickness of a knife blade to three inches. Bob Bnrdette on Art. Bob Bnrdette has gone in for art criti cism. His maiden effort is too good to be lost.

Still, as a work of art, it is very valuable painting; $13 worth of tube colors were used in its oonstruction, and the frame alone cost $45. The hair wart on Mr. Daubigne's oheek is omitted in the picture; and the right ear whioh was bit off in a fight down at the red bridge ten years ago, has been restored by the magic touoh of the accomplished artist. The nose of the sabject, also. uas ueen toned down, being treated in rose lakes instead of yermillion.
