Their wages are barely sufficient for subsistence and lodging, leaving all necessary incident al expenses, including clothing, to be provided either by a girl's family or through independent efforts of her own. In tbe Ureej cities this condition leads to frightful suflering or degrading im morality and ruin. Their employers are endeavoring to compel them to pur chase their thread and other supplies at employers' prices, and the well-to do girls who want a little extra money for luxuries and fineries compete with the lower classes and do the work at even lewer rates than those generally paid. In short, only thos girls have a passable exisience who have sufficient support in their family ties. The self dependent girl who lives by herself generally falls an easy prey to design ing men and ends in private or public immorality and prostitution. Frank GiUett Receives $5,000. Frank Gillett, of this city, the lucky holder of one-tenth purt of tickets 61, 608 in The Louisiana State Lottery, drawing $50,000 on the 18th inst., re ceived a package yesterday by the Wells-Fargo express containing 250 crisp twenty dollar bills. Returns were made in just nine days from the tame the ticket was forwarded from here for collection. -TJp a reporter The News Mr. Gril lett sV.'cd that he had been investing in this lottery every month for the past two or three years, never, except on two occasions, iuv^ting more than a dollar at a time. The total amount he Las invested up to the present time will not exceed $35. He never drew anything prior to this time, but he kept right on, feeling that he stoul as good a chanco to win as anyone, and his confidence was reward ed. Mr. Gillett says he shall continue to invest in the lottery every month, notwithstanding his good fortune. Wliile he was talking to the reporter, a etter was delivered to Mr. Gillett, which coutained his ticket for the next monthly drawing,—Norfolk (Neb.) News, Sept. 29. Wiles of a Paper Hanger. Philadelphia Call: "You want your house papered to-morrow?'' asked *n uptown paper-hanger of a lady cus tomer. "Yes," was ths reply. The dealer assured h«r that her order would be attended to promptly, and entered it upon his book. Four other orders for the same day were taken within the next half hour, and when the last 01 hi.-, cu-tomera had departed the dealer and ):i- clerk went over the books to find out which of the old cus tomers could be delayed to accommo date the new ones. '-We must do something like that," he remarked, "or the people will go somewhere else, and that would never do." Encourage Clergymen and Teachers. Boston Globe: We hope that Mr. John Lawrence Sullivan will leave his diamond belt where clergymeu and teachers who are «irugf»ling along on $300 a year can see it when they come to Boston.

DRESSING WELL. The Duty of Keeping Up with the Great Dry Goods Procession. The Dry Goods Chronicle reads us a little lesson on the duty of dressing well: ••The day will soon come," says a well-known leader of fashion, "when it will no longer be a slur on a good wuman, old or young, to say she thinks a good deal of dress she at taches enormous importance to esthet ics." While it remains a good motive to give others pleasure and spare them disagreeable shocks, the rule must hold good in every department of life. "The day will soon come when it shall be a recognized duty to conceal vhat is offensive, when slight deformities of limb and skin shall be avowedly dis guised by art. and great and startling deformities shall cease to disgrace our public streets. It is one of the duties of life to grease the wheels on which we drive as far as is consistent with other duties, and most people must judge for themselves how far that is. It is as easy to dress well as ill, since dress we must. Absolute un consciousness as to how she looks is impossible to any woman, since ever^ eye tells her unbidden therefore icdif ference to appearance is inculca'.ed. It is natural to wish to please in all by kindness and a pleasant man ner or at least, not to displ ase. How delicately Goldsmith distinguishes his two type of innocent and admirable womanhood! Differ ently lovely, 'Olivia was often affected from too great a desire to please Sophie even repressed excellence from her fears to offend—one vanished by a single blow, the other by efforts suc cessfully repeated.' "Very beautiful women are seldom vain. They are so used to their own bt auty that they do not think much about it, any more than a man thinks much about his rank or profession when not engaged in his duties. The vain woman is she who has been un fairly disparaged. Undue self-con sciousness is the revolt against injus tice, and, like all revolt, is disagree able. Were all women acknowledged to have her'points,'personal as .vdi as mental, and allowed to cultivate them in a sensible and simple spirit there would be less envy and malice, less vanity and wasted time, and more innocent pleasure throughout life. But a pre.tty woman who leaves unculti vated her mind and heart for the sake of her body, that is the illustration of the -jawel of gold in a swine's snout!' It was Bishop Simpson. American Magazine: Late one Sat urday night he arrived at a town in the mountainous region of Pennsylvania, where he was a total stranger. The next morning ho made his way to the Methodist church and accosted the pas tor, telling him that he was a brother in the ministry. Simpson being ex tremely awkward and plain in appear ance, the pastor was half inclined to omit the courtesy due a brother preach er, of asking him to deliver a sermon. If he inquired of the bishop as to his name he must have failed to catch it, for he certainly had no idea to whom he was speaking. His request for the stranger t. preach was therefore ex pressed in tbe most formal and con strained manner. The straDger readi ly agreed to till the pulpit, and the pastor's chagrin was evident as he resigned himself to his fate. The bishop preached one of his powerful sermons, and everybody in the audi ence whispered to his neighbor, "who is heP" Before he had taken his seat tbe pastor had him by the hand. "What did you say your name was?" "Simpson." "What! Not the Bishop?" "That is what they call me." The minister instantly jumped to hia feet and shouted: "You have just had the privilege of listening to Bishop Simpson. Let us sing, 'Praise God from whom all bless ings flow.' Her Profound Soa»jr.

Everybody knows he was so good to mo that in common decenoy I can't try again for ever so long. Boo hoo' Boo-hoo! Horrible Snlf-Tortnre. "The Hon. George Cui^son, writing of fho religious fanatics of the Kairwan, tells the following story in the Fort .iiufhtly Review-. From the crowd at the door a wild figure broke forth, tore ioff his upper clothing till lie was naked to the waist, and throwing away his fez bared a head close-shaven save for one long and disheveled lock that, springing from the scalp, fell over his forehead like some grisly and funereal .plume. A long knife, somewhat re sembling a cutlass, was handed to him by the sheikh, who had risen to his feet, and who directed the phenomena that ensued. Waving it wildly above his head and protruding the foro part of his figure, the fanatic brought it down blow after blow against his bared stomach and drew it savagely to and fro against the unprotected skin. There showed the marks of a long and livid weal, but no blood spurted from the gash. In the intervals between the strokes he ran swiftly from one side to the other of the open space, taking long stealthy strides like a panther about to spring, and seem ingly so powerless over his own move ments that he knocked blindly up against ti.ose who stood in his way, nearly upsetting them with the vio lence of the collision. The prowess or the piety of this ardent devotee proved extraordinarily contagious. First one and then an other of his brethren caught the afflatus and followed his example. In a few moments ctery part of (he mosque was the seene of some novel and horrible rite of self-niuttlation, performed by a fresh aspirant to the favor of Allah. Several long iron spits or prongs were produced and distributed these formidable implements were about two and a half feet in length, and sharply pointed, and they terminated at the handle in a circular wooden knob about the size of a large orange. There was great competition for these instruments of torture, w.:ieh wore used as follows: Poising one in the air, an Aissaoui would suddenly force the point into the flesh of his own shoulder in front, just below the shoulder-blade. Thus translixed and holding the weap on aloft, he strode swiftly up ami down. Suudenlj-, at a signal, he fell,on his knees, still forcing the point into his body and keeping the wooden head uppermost. Then there started tip another disciple armed with a big wooden mallet, and he, after a few preliminary taps, rising high on tiptoe with uplifted weapon, would, with an appalling yell, bring it down with all nis force upon the wooden knob, driv ing the point home through the shoulder of his comrade. Bio\r suc ceeded blow, the victim wincing be neath the stroke, but uttering no sound, and fixing his eyes witii a look of ineffable delight upon his torturer, till the point was driven right through the shoulder and projected at the back. Then the patient marched backward and forward with the air and the gait of a conquering hero. At one moment there were four of these semi-naked maniacs within a yard of my feet, transfixed and trembling, but beauti fied and triumphant. mm* We Left Our Country for Our Conn try's Good. Inquiry was recently made in re gard to the authorship of the familiar liue: We left our country for our country's good. Col. Thomas W. Knox, the honor ary secretary of the Lotos club, kind iy sends us the interesting facts con cerning this quotation. It is from the prologue to the first heatrical repre sentation ever giveu in Australia, at Sydney, in 1795. The play was "The Hanger," performed by a company of amateurs, all of whom were convicts. The manager also was a convict. An admission fee of 1 shilling was de manded, and the governor and his staff was graciously invited to free 6eats. Coin being scarce in the col ony, a shilling's worth of flour or rum was accepted in lieu of money. One of the actors spoke the prologue, which ran as follows: From distant lands, o'or widespread seas we come. But not with much eclat, or bent of drum. True patriots all, for. be it understood. We lei our country for our country's pood I No private views disgraced ourgenerou.- zcnl.

But how, you ask, can wo e'er hope to soar Above these seines, and rise to traaio lore! For oi't, alasi we've forced the unwilling tear, And petrifl'd the heart with reai fear.

The convict who played I-llcli recited the prologue, and was probably its author. YVe know that it is treading on delicate ground to inquire too curious ly into the antecedents of the ancient Australian families but that feeling will pass away tnere, as it has in Vir ginia, where England also had convict settlements. Nobody need be averse to acknowledge his descent from a convict who could write such capital Spirit of the Times. A li'miny Wight. Jo* Buckley tells a funny about several hodcarriers whom he saw at work in Boston one day recent ly. They were laboriug, but not too hard, thus avoiding any possibility of a sunstroke from overexertion. 4ev eral wei'1 engagetjia Jjlhng their hods with br"i£ and mortar and thre« were foiling up the long ladder leading to ths top of the building, their backs bending beneath the weight of a hod fill of bricks apiece. The foremost man was within three or four rounds of tbe top of the ladder when suddenly the 12 o'clock whistio blew. Presto! The sccne changed immediately. The men at work on the ground dropped the bricks they were handling as if those articles were sred-hot, while the fellows on the lad der made much quicker time in scram bling backward toward terra firms than they had in traveling in an up ward direction. But the funniest of all, the man who was near the top of the ladder, instead of going ahead and dumping his load, actually came all the way to th« fim. round, bringing hod and bricks with In his eagerness to quit work, h« forgot that lie would have to make hig journey over again.— Brockton Gazette. Howells'g First Literary Venture. Mr. Howells was born March 1, 1837, at Martin's Ferry, Ohio, opposite Wheeling, West Virginia. His father was of Welsh descent, his mother of German stock, and both were superior by education and tastes to the moder ate circumstances in which they found themselves when this boy, who was one of eight children, came into the world. When he was only threw years old, they left Martin's Ferry to live in Hamilton, Ohio, and then the father bought and edited the Intelligencer, a weekly newspaper, and his son was scarcely out of his cradle before he learned to set type. He had little regular schooling, but he was a great reader and had a natural gift for com position. He does not remember how young he was when he mastered the mysteries of the printer's trade, but it was certainly long before he was twelve. Thero were leisure moment between the working hours, and he occupied these in printing compositions of hi own. However precocious they mi be, few young authors see their work immortalized by the dignity and per manence of type before they reach tiieir teens but when this lad was onlj eleven, he set up and printed an am bitious work of his own. A thorough bred is not less fearless of ditch ana hedge than the budding author is of his theme. Mr. Howells is ca!lcd a "realist" now ho writes about men and women as they are, and will have neither viilians of deep dye lior para gons of virtue in his stories: for he be Iwes that good and evil are mixed in all of us. But he was of a different mind when he wore a white apron and stood before the printer's case, witii its alp abetieal compartments full of little metal letters. He boldly inuuciicd out then, not in ahv cockle shell of rhyme, but in a live-act verse tragedy and it should bo needless to say that the subject was the death of a Koman Emperor. Such ventures carry too muc sail for their ballast, and, like other lightly laden ships,, this has not been heard from since.-— William 11. liu'.ding, in St. Siehuias. Juvenile Bank Accounts. How am I to provide a bank ac count for my children, when I have so scanty a one of my own? 1 hear some fond parents exclaim. By teach ing your c.iildren to earn money. Of course it is not always possible ior them to save it when earned that is, there are cases where it must be applied to meet the necessities of life at once. Children cannot begin too early to earn a little, and thero are an infinite number of ways in which they can gain a few cents, giving them an inexpressible feeling of pride and owership 111 having something that is truly their own. It will serve as an incentive to greater industry, and the habits they will thus acquire will be of vastly more benefit than the money they save. One of my own boys in early child hood evinced a strong propensity to extravagance, and although our moans were not such as to permit any great and foolish outlay of small coins by the lad, still he managed to spend, in the most trilling way, all the cents .and dimes giveu him by his grand parents and uncles. One Christmas I gave him a bright tin bank, promis ing him live cents for every half dol lar lie accumulated. When his sav ings had reached $5 (and they were long in so doing), I put the sum in a saving banjc, giving him a bank book of his own. From "that time I noticed a decided change in his character. He never became miserly, but grew up an earnest, prudent boy, soon de vising ways and means of adding to his little store. If our children are obliged to perform such duties as cut ting wood, screening ashes, and the like, they will have more energy and ambition if you pay them a few cents per week, of better still, let them work by "contract."—Farmer's Wife, in American Agriculturist. Tbc Scotchman's MlstaVe. Hech! But the the Scotch are a canny race. Away w here the heather grows and river rows, wi' many a hill between, they have vague and grue some ideas about California. But they have not enough belief 111 the "bogy" stories about it to prevent them from sending out money and turning an holiest penny by investment here. Per haps some people would be surprised to know how many valuable interests here are owned in Scotland. A few weeks ago there came out on business a genial Scotchman from Glasgow who is interested in some large mining properties. His sister was packing his trunk for him before he left. She was a genuine Scotch lassie, and when she saw placed before tier a bulldog pistol he had purchased for emergen cies, she shrunk back. "You're not going to tako that with you. are you, brother?" "To be sure. It's most important Don't forget to put that in my trunk." "I wish you would promise me one thin", brother," she said earnestly. "What?" "Don't kill anybody!" "Mot if it isn't necessary." He started off and was joined by another Scotch friend. They were crossing the plains, and at one of the stations a man came on board and told tiiem there was a band of Indians about and an attack on the train was feared. There was confusion and con sternation. The passengers were all arming. "How's the time for yon," said his Scotch friend. Your bulldog pistol will come in handy." "Confound it man! It's checked through in my trunk. I didn't think I'd need it till I got to California."— San FranciscX) Chronicle. They 6tood on the sands of the ever gouuding sea, mothe* of posts.

Boston Transcript: In a good old western Massachusetts town lives a doctor who has buried four wives. When number four was a bride of a few days she went with her oldest step daughter into the attic to find an iron ing-board. Seeing a board that she thought would answer the purpose nice ly, she was ahout to take it, when the daughter cxclaimed: "Oh. don't take that, for that is what fathec uses to lay out his wives on!" The anarchists are very illogical. So ciety has as much right to hang the anarchists as the anarchists have to dynamite soc_ How Henry George's Plan would Work. Work and Wages:—It is more gen erally the rich men who can diffuse his real estate tax and mere generally the poor man who cannot. The circum stances are so infinitely varied that no rule of tax diffusion applicable to any class caa be made. Without aitempti. to sound the depths of the matter in this brief article, or to lay down an un varying rule, it may be pointed out that there can be no scattering diffus ion of a real estate tax unless there is produced on the land many manufac tured, mined, agricultural, mercantile, etc.. values which are to become the vehicles for diffusing the tax. Whether alone or in connection with personal property, a real estate tax ii unjust. It commonly stays where it i* placed in the case of the poor man and it is commonly diffused by the rich man or corporation. Hence, in the diffused system, the rich man bears taxation in proportions to his consumption and use of things, while the poor man not only bears it in this measure, but he has to shoulder his own undiffusable tax besides. And not only this injus tice should be pointed out, namely, that a man's consumption and use of things is not a correct measure of his ability to bear public burdens. Under the present system the poor man bears what is to him the heaviest burden of taxation, and the poor and middle clashes almost the entire bur den. An exclusive real estate tax would make tbe case still worse. It fellows from the facts pointed out above that Henry George's rent confis cation tax would confiscate the rent of the poor and middle class land holder most cases, but not that of the rich landlord, manufacturer, mine owm-r and railroad. The rich would add th tax to price and to rent and the poor would have to pay it beside bearing their own undiffusable taxes, Whoever would resort to taxation for the purpose of working out a re form or establishing justice is playing with something that will do more dam age than good. After examing the widspread and apparently insurmount able evils existing in the imposition, 1 he assessment and the diffusion of taxpe, one cannot help but elieve tba! taxes should be kept at the very lowest amount called for by a strict construc tion of the public necessity. 80BG OF THE Wf DDIBG G0WI. A woman Is busy mid sewers, And wearily wears a frown, For her tired brain forms the devices That are wrought in a wedding gown.

Her delicate fo-m bends loir O'er a ftbric rich and white, For a queenly woman pledged To a man whose wealth is might And both with a pro igal cost Would astound the gaping town.
