The Woman' Problem of To-Day. Uow to secure good health should be one of the first problems for this generation of women. This is Ahe'demand their subjects will make of those they are crowning as queens of the hearth and the home. Give us bright, fresh, kindly-hearted sisters, say the lads and the little brothers in the homes. Give us happy, healthy faces over our cradles, plead the babes, who find their heaven in mother's eyes. Give us cheer and laughter and a little . fun, say the fathers, turning wearily towara ineir nresiaes at ine end of a day of toil. Give us a bright ' dainty touch on household ways, say the mothers, who would give their lives any day to see their daughters well and strong and glad. Give us health, is the cry from all the world to its women. Give us girls with a physique that will spare us the mor bid brooding of discontent, the hys terical tantrum, the nervous collapse, the look of gloom from the clear wells of your eyes. The old world is weary and travel worn, and it sits, as the master sat over against the well of Samaria, and says, "Woman, give me to drink." The youth and health of womanhood are like a cup that holds refreshment for every thirsty and weary soul. Do not have to answer, "I have noth ing to draw with' and the well is deep." This is, as I have said, the problem of to-day. ' It la not our purpose now and here to suggest how best it can be solved. To the true seeker it will open its intricacies one by one. One little single hygienic law of sleep, of diet, of dress or exorcise, the first and simplest that you know, obeyed, and the work is begun. Knowing the next thing to do is not important un til you have done the next thing you know. Any society, called by whatever name, that so begins and bo goes on, begins at the root of noblo living, and may be sure, however slow their growth, that every step planted firm ly on a hygienic fact will be a step not only toward personal physical well being, but toward the uplifting of the race as well. If women once arouse themselves to the danger, and take hold of the mat ter In earnest, we shall not be long in seeing a more hopeful sign in the sky. Already is there a morning glimmer flashing in the columns of the press. No man who stops to ask himself the question how many healthy women he numbers among his acquaintance but will welcome the gleam of this dawn. Mary L. Dickinson, in Harper's Bazar, Married Six Times. , Ten years ago the little tavern at Emerson's Mills in the Fine Kun lum. bor region in Pennsylvania was kept by an odd character, Ellas Benton, lie had a .very pretty daughter named Betty. She was sixteen years old, and Edward Shott young and well-to-do, . was in love with her. Betty wanted to marry Shott, but the father had other plans. Ho chose for her hus band a man three times her age, who owned a large pine tract, a valuable proporty that Landlord Benton was anxious to possess. He compelled his daughter to marry this man, Aula's by name. He lived only six months, and left his young widow the pine land, which her father sold and appropriated the proceeds to his own use. Young Shott in the ' meantime had gone away. One year after the death m niiH hiuninn nira. a uni mnrrmn. - to spite her father, John Grover, a sawyer. . He was killed lnhls employer's mills one month later. The landlord's daughter was now twice a widow, although she was not yet eighteen years old. Two months after her second husband's death Ed ward Shott returned, and on her elgh- a .u vi.vj. urij.- married her old-time lover. The couple lived happily for a year, and t-iu - i. rrl .kiu UOe vuiiu woo uurui iuo vuuu nu nVif t xmr wnnlra nA irhAn t.h fntriAr wan crushed to death by a falling tree. ' The landlord's daughter mourned her third husband sincerely for two years. ' About this time her father dfed. At the age of twenty-one she made what was regarded as a most fortu nate marriage, her fourth husband ' being Elmer James, a young lawyer. James turned out to be a drunkard. lie aousea nis wue ana ner cniia bo shamefully that she had no difficulty in obtaining a divorce. . 1 She remained single then until she was twenty-three, when she married ' George Rhone, a widower of fifty. Before they were married a . year Rhone dld of tha small-pox. His young wife nursed him all through tha course of the dreadful disease, escaping without taking it herself. Rhone left his widow $10,000 in cash. Not long after her last husband's death she took her child and went to Ohio, where she had relatives. This was one year ago. ' Recently sho wrote to a friend that she was to be married the next day in Covington, Ky., to a young man named Charley Green, a blue grass farmer. ' The True Woman. ' If educating a woman according to the regulations of ' the present exclus ive and fashionable schools for young ladles unfits them to take charge, pre side over, and administer well the af fairs of a household, the less of it the better for the world. A true woman is grand in her life and love. In hoc home she is a veritable queen. But any education, polish or Improvement which renders her less the unrivalled, supreme, divine inspiration that she is as sister, wife and mother, dethrones the sweetest and purest being that makes home such a blessing that mil lions cling to them in preference to going to heaven. God made woman, and . man should be careful . in im proving and adorning, that much of the original beauty, purity and polish are not marred by mistaken fashion and folly. Educate the girls, but not away from being God's best and purest gift to man. Any educa tion which makes a woman begin to doubt her great mission, and to fill her mind with crochety criticisms, dog matic innovations, and pedantio no tions of what her life is, or ought to be, is alienating, and depriving her of her legal right, to the throne of su preme happiness and bliss. That ed ucation which fills the heart with cheerful songs of love and kindness amid tho world s darkest hours; which with its mission will sweeten labor when worldly wealth fades or goos up in smoke; or which w'ill aid in ad ministering soothing balm when the head is faint or the heart sick, or opens the fountains of sympathy in times of grief and sorrow, is the kind of education which make a diploma worth more than diadems of gold or preclouB stones. But when the schools and society tend to steal from woman her crown of happiness the sweet est blessing of home, sister, wife and mother which are the highest of aU human joys, it will be a sad day for the human family. God help the woman who alms to find in fashionable society and vain amusements those satisfying joys which hor heart and soul were made to enjoy VJarkson, in American Farmer. ' Apron of All Kind. A handsome dress apron is made of ecru scrim, with a four-inch band of drawn-work above a wide hem. Run into this drawn-work narrow blue rib bons, in all shades, from darkest to palest, alternating over and under the threads. Edge the bottom with ecru linen lace. Another is of ecru batiste, quite long, laid in nine box-plaits. In the center of each plait lay a strip of em broidery, done in colors, the center one the longest, and graduating in length toward the sides. Shir the top, and fasten with ribbon or ties of the goods. One very pretty apron Is made of fine scrim, cut long enough to reach slightly below the knees. This is to be hemmed and edged all around with wide lace, set on plain. Each side of the apron is tucked with four-inch tucks, turning toward the middle, and on each tuck is set a strip of cardinal velvet ribbon. The middle of the apron is gathered, the tucked sides left plain, and it is attached to a car dinal velvet belt. Stripes of seersucker and Russian laces, alternating, make very pretty and inexpensive aprons. An apron of black silk or sateen, with a bright vine embroidered or painted across the bottom, or with a flower in one corner and one on the pocket, placed on the opposite side, is durable and pretty. Fancy towels make neat aprons if doubled down about one-fourth their length so as to show both bosders, plaited to fit, and a fancy cord and tassels used as belt. ' Pongee is another nice material for aprons, trim with embroidery, lace, ribbons or a combination of the three. : A silk tissue called "luten" is beau tiful and delicate as frost work, and makes exquisite aprons when embroid ered with washing silks. Though of so fine a texture it washes nicely. One pretty and odd apron is of fine web or piece lace, the right Bide hang ing straight and plain, while the other side in closely plaited and trimmed with numerous long loops of white picot-edge ribbon, which depends from the belt.

Aa Alabama Water Hnnard A Soldier of fortune Incidents and y Minor Heme. An Alabama "Water llussard." ' In 1862. when Buell'a arm was moving East, they "cleaned up" a section of northern Alabama of pork and poultry; they had taken every thing we bad in tho way of pig and fowl, except an old Muscovy drake, whose age was more uncertain than an old maid's, so a member of the "hoodlums" tried to capture and con fiscate his dmkeshlp, when an old soldier asked: "What , are you going to do with that thing?" "Eat it," replied smarty. WhatP eat a water buzzard?". Vis that a water buzzard?" . "Yes." replied the old soldier. "Well, I'll be d d," was the re mark of smarty, as he desisted. In the autumn of '63, when the val ley on the South side of Tennesse river was "foraged" out, both armies in operating through the valley, sent forage parties across the river into this county. Itso happened that on one occasion whe the federals sent their wagons over to this side at Bain bridge, Beven miles above Florence, Ala., the rebels were below the town several miles, and receiving intelli gence that the Yankees were above, conoluded to capture the "Yankee lay-out" - The rebels passed through town on their mission, and among them was quite a wag. Some one asked him: r- Where aro you going?" "Up above to get thorn Yankees." A lady near by seeing him, said to him: "Please bring me two pistols." "All right," ho replied, and rodo off as if chased by n 'ury. In the courso of a couple of hours, tho rebs returned In a rush. When the' waggish rcb, (riding a mule, and in the rear, as he was-when he went up) hove in sight, he was accosted with: "Where are your Yankees?" "Back thar." . pointing up tho road. "When will thy be In?" "Pretty dd quick." "How many nre there of them?" . "Oh, h 1, I didn't stop to count 'em, but there's a smart chance of 'em!" Then, as he passed the residence of the lady sho asked: . "Where are my pistols?" - The rob answered, with a long face, "that he clean forgot 'em." In 30 minutes there were in Flor ence anywhere from 600 to 1,000 of U. S. boys. Such was the fate of war. In '64, when Hood's army was cross ing on the pontoon bridge, going to Nashville, Lieut. Ford, of either Ten nessee or Illinois Cavalry, I did not know which, floated down Tennes see River one dark night for the sup posed purpose of cutting the bridge, but from some causo the mission failed. He hid himself in one of the 'bouts, but a negro betrayed him. He was captured and executed. He wus tho "weatherbeaten trooper" that nskod for information when tho boys soarchod our old dump cart. Dub. - Soldier f Fortnn. "In 1870." said Major Vand'orgrift, "I met as typical a soldier of fortune as can be Imagined. I had gone on an excursion. On tho boat thero was dancing in tho cabin, una ns I stood watching tho dancers I observed a man staring at me. He wus a typical Southerner in uppoaranco, tall, hand some and striking-looking., ills gazo annoyed mo so that I left tho cabin. "Returning again, he renowed tho stare, and I finally found him standing by my side, lie said: "I beg pardon, but you don't know me, I see." 'No,1 1 said, 'I don't.' 'I know you,' ho re plied, 'In 1861 you wero a lieutenant in the Second Ohio regiment in front of Washington, weren't you?' 'Yos.' I assented. 'In '63 you wero adjutant of the Second in front of Murfroosboro, Tenn." . Yes.' 'In the latter part of '64 you wero on the Litto Miami rail wayP" 'Yes,'I said getting Interested, but you've tho advantage of me, for I can't recall ever seeing you.' I know you. you soe,' the stranger said, 'and I'll tell you a story. In '61 I was a boy of twenty; I was in your camp in front of Wash ington selling fruit and trinkets to the men. I was a confederate spy then. It '63 1 was still a spy, and struck your camp at Murfreesboro. It was odd that I should get into the same camp again, but I did. There were bo muny officers there, you among them, whom I knew, that I feared detection and fled.- The latter part of '64 I was captured not as a spy, fortunately, but as a rebel soldier and sent as a prisoner to Camp Chase, O. One night nine of us suc ceeded in e scaping from prison and, making our way as far ae Alton, on the Little Miami, we boarded the mid night express. We were sitting to gether concealed as much as possible, when the door opened, and who should walk in but yourself. I told the boys the jig was up, and we jumped from the train and took to the woods. We thought you "were an omcor in'pursult of the fugitives. You wore not P God, I wish we had known it then. "After the war," he continued "I drifted down into Mexico, and joined Maximilian's forces, where I was cap tured and came within an ace of being shot with Maximilian. From Mexico I went to South America, and fought in two or three of their revolutions. I grew tired of that and came back to the States.' .I'm tired of it here, and I am off next week to enlist in tho Pa pal zouaves, as I Bee Victor Emmanuel and the popo are having trouble, and his holiness has advertised fpr re cruits. Good-by," . and be was off. It was curious that he and I should have met so frequently, and I've been rather sorry that I lost track of the fellow afterward. ' He was a true sol dier of fortune, and there were lot like him iu the war." . General Starkweather, Gen. John C. Starkweather died at his home in Washington, recently. The General had been ill for two or three months, but bis friends felt no anxiety regarding him, and he fre quently visited his offioe for a short time once a week. General Starkweather was born at Cooperstown, N. Y., May 11, 1830, his father being Hon. George A. Stark weather, who was for several terms a member of Congress" and afterward a Minister to one of the South Ameri can States. His education was re ceived in the East, and he graduated from Union College. In 1852 he was married and removed to Milwaukee. - When Sumter was fired upon Cap tain Starkweather and his company, the Milwaukee Light Guard, of which he had been made commander, joined the First Wisconsin three months and served out his time. Going home the regiment re-enlisted, and Captain Starkweather was made Colonel of the new organization, his Light Guard going into tho new regiment almost to a man.'; Frbra this company four rose to the rank of general officers, twenty-one to that of colonel, eight to lieutenant-colonel, four to major, nineteen to captain, eighteen to first-lieutenant, and 23 to Second Lieutenant, making 97 out of 100 men who became officers, all of whom originally be longed to tho Light Guard, a record" probably not equaled during the wur. Gen. Starkweather was promoted Brigadier-General in July, 1863, but he had commanded a brigade from the time his regiment joined the Four teenth Corps when that famous Corps was first organized. He was compli mented in General Orders for the masterly handling of his brigade in the battle of Porryvillo, Stone River, and Chickamauga, in which battles he played a conspicuous part. lie was breveted Major General "for gallan and meritorious services in the field," and commanded a division of the Four teenth Corps. It is said of him that ho had the most powerful voice of any man in the Army of the Cumberland, and that at the buttle of Perry vllle his commands could be heard a mile over the din of battle. After the war he returned to Mil waukee, but soon removed to Wash ington, where he has continued to practice his profession, being one of tho ablest lawyers of the Washington bar. He was deservedly popular with both social, military, and business circles at the Capital, having been a member of many Orders, among which were the Loyal Legion, Grand Army, Garfield Guard' of Honor, Knights Templar, etc. , His widow and four children sur vive him. The remains were taken to Mllwau koo and Interred In the family lot at Forest Home cemetery. A ttebtil' Ktthnate of Lee's Foreea, - I have found that in the different correspondence running through the National Tribmie where (here is ques tion as to tho number of Confederate troops who took part in the battle of Gettysburg, no two writers agree in their estimate. The following inci dent, which occurred during the bat tle of Gettysburg,- may help to estab lish the facts In the case. Given at that time and undor such circum stances, tho statement is at least en titled to due consideration, for it was evidently tho officer's best knowlodge at that time, whatover his source of information. My father's home in July, 1863, was situated on the Chambersburg Pike, a few miles from Gettysburg, and was inside tho confederate lines during the buttle, and until after the retreat of Leo's urmy. Gen. Pettlgrew's com mand encamped closo to our house until they were ordered Into action at Gettysburg. On the evonlng of either June 80th or July 1st I do not remomber exactly which date my mother gave Gen. Pettigrcw and his staff oflicers their supper, and the latter mado our house their boarding house whenever their engagement with the Yankeos at Gettysburg did not hinder their coming to meals; some one of them, howover. was thero every duy. On July 2d, my mother asked one of these staff officers how many soldiers they - . had en gaged in this battle. He took pencil and paper, and after a brief exer cise in mathematics and a moment's reflection said, Jetween 75,000 and 80.000, all told." My mother was ap palled, and exclaimed, "We are lost! You will take the capital." "Well, madam," Bald be, "no doubt of It; but we will-havo some fighting to do first for the Army of the Potomac con fronts us Instead of the raw militia." This latter bit of information eeemed to be given for whatever satisfaction she could derive from it; it certainly was none to him. I will briefly add that on the evening of the 8d she asked ono of tho officers to tell her just how - the battle was going. In answer he said. "We can drive them in on the right wing, and on the left wing, but (excuse my language, madam) all hell can't move their cen ter." Lizzie Deller. ' Train Tonr Character.

Valoo of Experiments. In a majority of cases in order to be of practical value, experiments con cerning different plans of farm man agement must be repeated often sev eral timos. ' Often because this is not done, serious mistakes are . made. Often a new method of planting or cultivating is tried, not alongside of another that Is being managed by the old plitn, so that the tost can be made by Itself. If the result Is favprable the plan is often taken to be an im pro7ement without oonsidorlng the other circumstances that may have in flujnced the result Every year new plans or methods of fighting insect pests, that are injurious to farm, gar den or fruit crops are sent out nlne tonths of which are of no value wherev er the pests appear.. They work first rate where there are but few If any pests, the remedy that proved a success where there was nothing to fight is of no value. . . Because success has seemingly been obtained one year, the remedy is sent put as being reliable. The same holds good with many new plans or methods of farm work; one trial is made, and if success Is . obtained the method Is duly rocomended. Failures are but little spoken about but if a second trial Is given with bettor results, how quick the fact becomes known. With farm work, the real facts can only be learned by successive experiments carefully carried out What may be a success one year under certain condi tions, will often prove a failure the next under different circumstances. We havo learned thoroughly that what ! will bo a success on one kind of soli, i or with one plan of planting, or culti vating, is no proof that it will answer I under untl rely different conditions, to j that success in one locality is no ; criterion that it is just the thing to do . In another. Varieties of fruit grain or vegetables that thrive well and j yield good crops in one locality, will prove a failure in another because the j conditions are different and in many cases, especially with grain, the second crop will give better results than tho first, because the variety is becoming acclimated. New varieties often prove ' successful because of the extra care given. The seed has been purchased at a high price, and the farmer is dis posed to seoure the best possible re sults; and because of the extra pains taken, succeeds. Another trial with average preparation and cultivation, and the results are not so satisfactory. In muny cases a better plan is to make comparative tests, planting some of the new varieties along side of an old standard, one that has been fully tea tod; give as nearly the came soil, preparation and cultivation as possi ble, and save the best of each for seed and give a socond trial; the results the second year while not always con clusive, may at lonst be instructive; In many cases more satisfactory re sults and considerable practical in formation can bo secured if the same plan is followed with new methods of planting and cultivating. Farm ex periments are always interesting', pro vided they nre of such a nature as to be practical, and . are conducted in such a wuy as to bo reliable. . farm Hints.
