The commissioners for the extirpation of the
cattle disease arc again this week at Xortli
Itrookfield, nml find cause for increased anxiety
in the dctclopnient of the character of the dis'
ease and the extent to which it has spread in
that region. M'c joined the commissioners
there on Thursday, nnd give some-new end im
portant information on the subject. )rs Dadd
of lloston, Thajer of Xcntoti, llats, Ilcmi,
Woodaril nnd Sargent of Worccstor, and llrcck
of .Springfielil, were in atlcmlance, and aliout
fifty of the neighboring farmers. Tho first
place usitcd was Leopard Stoddard's, who lias
head, mostly jonng cattle, all of whom arc
supposed to ho nirected. Since September last
Mr Stoddard has lost thiitren head, at intervals
of two or three weeks. Si animals, chicllv
low in flesh, weic slaughtered and dissected in
the course of the forenoon". They included, as
was supposed before killing them, some of the
extreme cases, the worst and lightest specimens
of the malady . All ere fouu 1 to be bad, u orse
cs-en than was feared. The last one slaughter
ed Mailt Kootl-jdacl, licit, ,1,im..1Ic,1 WllOin'
.Mr Stoddard claimed was freest from the dis
ease of any animal n his herd. Her lungs
proved to be on ono side tuberculous and heay.
It was thought, she might have lived tonic
months, as does a person in consumption. In
the afternoon, tho herds of V. II. Ajcrs, K.
llnston nnd Alden Olmstcul, were . sited. At
the two former places the owners oulv suspected
the presence of the disease. At the fatter place,
lite out of twenty-three brad had died, threo
had been killed by order of the commissioners,
and two others, a cow and a calf, were slaugh
tered r.t the time of our isit. The calf was
apparently very sick, inclining to lie down, with
n drooping appearance, short, gasping breath,
nnd tho ribs rendering a hollow sound when
tapped upon by the lingers. The cow had been
ailing since the first of January. At first she
refused to cut, then drooped her head, anil for
some time was daily expected to die. Some
two or three weeks since she got better, went
to eating, and has since gained in llcsh. In or
der that the phjsicians anil populace might see
the iccupcratite power of nature in a case of
this kind, the animal was slain. She was taken
into an adjoining field, abounding in already
deep, prepared cattle-graves, rapped upon the
head, bled, the left froi t leg removed, the hide
skinned back to the middle of Iho body, and
several of the ribs nearest the shoulders with
drawn. The first thing noticeable was the fib
rous adhesion of the lungs to the rib. The
left lung was rcmot id, and found to be sulid,
heavy, and to contain n deep abscess. On cut
ting it open, a jcllowish matter of the consis
tenceof tar issued freely. This lung was found
to weigh 10 pounds, while that on the right side
weighed only -1 pounds. Tho heart was
thin and flabby, and the licr studded with pus
tules, and its surface pitted like n case of small
pox. The doctors have sat cd it for further ex
hibition and examination.
We were told by Dr. Thayer a gentleman of
skill, whom the commissioners employ in these
examinations, tiiat thus far ho has found the
left lung most diseased in recent, acute cases,
and the right lung chicllyin slow, chronic cases.
Mr Olmstead tells us that tho first symptoms of
the disease nre n drooping of the head, a cough,
refusal to cat, and panting for breath. Some
of his animals have abstained from food for a
fortnight, and others hate eaten on the day
they died. Wo noticed that Mr Ohnstead's
bam was new, tight and without any ventila
tion, and hate no doubt that want of proper air
is ono of the inducements of the disease. That
tho disorder is contagious, thero can be little
doubt, but at what stage it is transmissable, no
ono knows, l'rom fivo to ten days usually
elapse between tho exposure and the symp
toms. At present tho diseaso is confined to a terri
tory about 1- miles square, a territory abound
ing in cattle, and from which at this timo last
jear, from one tn two car loads of butter and
cheese per week were forwarded to lloston.
Xow all trade is suspended, tho cattle aro for
bidden under penalties to bo sold, and the herds
nro ordered. by tho commissioners to bo closely
Kent on their premises. Some 00 head were
ordered destroyed on Wednesday, in Xorlh
Ilrookficld and New liraintrcc, embracing threo
entire herds. Of theso Charles Huntington
loses 11, Alanson Xeedham i!S, and Alden
Moody SI. Mr Moody is a young man of no
ble (duck, and his stock Uko himself superior.
Ho is said to have knocked his favorite grade
Durham oxen on the head with his own hands,
rather than 6co any one else murder them, while
the tears rolled down his manly checks.
. The commissioners and doctors arc alarmed
nnd almost disheartened, for more than ono
hundred new cases wcro presented yesterday
fur their inspection, with tho animals already
killed, aud those they find that must be killed
to carry out their policy; tho appropriation of
the legislature ($10,000) is moro than exhaust
ed. Those killed on Wednesday wero apprais
ed at i?K)00j and their owners will bo paid from
tho appropriation. Mr. I.athrop went to lios
ton in tho noon train to adviso with tho gover
nor on the subject, and to induce him to visit
tho infected region to-day. If tho diseaso
should go no further, the loss to the faimers of
BRATTLEBOllO, YT.: APRIL, 28, 1SG0.
that region would be very great, and if it
spreads it may be necessary to call the legisla
ture together, or petition tlio aid of Congress,
The disease is well known in Kuropo as infec
tious, from whence wc received it.
The history of the disease in this country so
far as known, is as follows! In the month of
May, 1S50, there arrived in Uoston from Hol
land, four Dutch cows directed to W. W. ('hc
nery of Delmont. Thcso cows were black,
thin-skinned, largo nnd said to be great milkers.
On landing they appeared hungry, thirsty and
neglected, and one of them, it is said hnd not
been on her legs for twenty days. Tw o of these
cows were so feebh that they had to he carted
to liclmont, some six miles from lloston. A
few days after arrital, on the Ulst of May, tine
of the cows died. On the !M of Juno a second
died and on the liOth of Juiw rt third. The
fourth is now olive and doing wcU. In all, Mr
Chcnery has within n year lost 27 head of cat
tle of other importations, then on his premises.
The disease was not supuosed contngious till
rtCLiitlv. Last June. Corliss Stniblanl nf Vnrtl,
llrooklield bought three grade Dutch calves of
Mr Chcnery and brought them home. One of
them wns taken sick about the first of August,
and was finally taken tn his father's, Mr. Leon
ard Stoddard's, to bo doctored. It was placed
in his barn by the side of -ither cattle and died
there about the first of September. Mr Stod
dard, being n trading man, sold tho other two

Again will I call the attention of jour read
ers to our village, which, though it has not ex
panded (except thu crinoline portion) in any
great degree, jet the people have expended
round sums in "getting up" and patronizing
their levees; two of which have been holden
in this town the present winter.
1 am not to give jou an extended nccoont of
a letce in common, for there every one will find
the usual amount of smiles, cake, sparkling
eves, nnd pop corn, but I will tell j on the elfcct
the above, together with several bowls of ojs
ters, had upon me. I'or dajs previous to the
gathiring, the entire ncighliorhood was in an
uproar, a team to go hear, some fruit and
"trimmings" from the next place, was the order
of the day, and of course no one could refuse,
when thc meeting house needs repairs, or the
minister is likelj to come short n cool hundred,
and the labor and help of all sorts of fowls is
called into requisition from the Quail" to the
"l'clican," and after a full compliment of Hall
trimming, finger-pounding, and table-fixing, the
happy evening arrives. With hat in liimd nnd
and heart in my mouth, 1 call for "The lady of
mv choice," who has nr.- "ouIv consented to be
cseuueu lei mo i.etce and atlei .1. u
couple of dimes at the door, and a low bow to
the shadow of the lady just forward, we aro
ushered into the Ilnll, iuade as light as noonday
by the blaze of a hundred tallow candles, anil
as many beaming countenances j congratulating
tnjsclf that so much happiness was now before
me, all for two dimes. Mistaken man! like the
Pilgrim, it was here my trials first began. The
deacon's daughter now approaches and. claims
the pmilcgo of "showing us round to see the
tables," ()f course they were beautifully ar
ranged. Kven "Solomon in all his glory" could
not exceed one of these in beauty and splendor.
One cake in particular attracted my attention
bung to tastefully trimmed; and so courteous
was the lady in attendance, that she even placed
it in my hands, and then, to mv surprise, I
learned it was a "Guess Cake." (Didn't I burn
mv fingers.) Then my lady had to guess, too,
(why can't women let' sucli things alone? So
it was, and 1 paid the guesses with a quarter,
nml it being the first money she had taken, of
course she had no change, and I left the spot,
feeling a little lighter nt pocket but heavier nt
heart. Wc now listen to the opening speech,
then a song, after which, tho "distinguished
Speaker from abroad," appears before us in the
person of John Smith, the blacksmith, who is
a constant attendant at church and "pavs well,"
who (of course is "wholly unprepared," being
called upon "unexpectedly,") repeats a few sen
tences ho has learned bv heart, sits down, to be
followed by the "Hand," who "perform their
part admirably," from the Captain Tlown to the
man with the big drum, who looks, for all the
w oi Id, like a boy trying to knock in the head
of a rum hogshead.
It is eight o'clock, nnd supper is announced
to be served in one hour, and to save my money
I nt once determined to satiate the appetite o'f
the beauty at my side with cake, feeling that it
would cost less to fill ono than two. I then
rushed to the t.-flilc, passing her a liberal slice
of cake, reserving another in my own hands in
case she should get through with'the first. And
what is to pay ? "Only a quaiter each," sajs
the lady, "that is tho 'King Cake.'" King
Cake! Indeed! I mistook I I that is to
say all right, Mr. l'clican, yon may get the
ring there are on!) fifty pieces at a quarter
each, and the ring is richly worth a dollar and
a half. Ily this time pieeo Xo. 1, was badly
ciumbled, to find the ring, nnd scattered upon
the floor, and getting desperate, piece Xo. 2
follows its prcdecssor. We then sought a quiet
corner for a teat, when my companion mado a
rush toward a strange lad t:; and after a serious
shaking and n few reports, like the uncorking
of a beer bottle, I wns introduced to "mvcous
iu," right from tho city, or factorj-, I did not
distinguish which, nnd then in a low, gentle
voice, I was informed that this w as a "sweet
pretty girl," and the "cousin" was also inform
ed, in so low a tone of voice, that I could dis
tinctly hear, that this "dear gentleman" ,was her
beau, and would probably take them both to
supper, (wan't that cool ?) To supper w c went,
and partly to get my monej's worth, and partly
out of spite, succeeds in putting four bowls o'f
oysters in n very nnenviablo position.
On returning to the hall, wu met tho Miss
with tho "Grab bag," who had such n "winning
way" that, bachelor as I was, I could not resist.
I paid another quarter determined to see the
elephant in full uniform. Lady at my right
dips in first and draws forth a pipo loaded with
tobacco, a very pretty article for a oung lady,
and now for the cousin at my left, who after
displaying good tasto in selecting a bundle, held
up to view a littlo apron, so small I wondered
what could be dono with it. And now for the
Pelican, who plunged to tho bottom, and after
selecting a good plump package, unrolled it to
tho gaze of tho astonished crowd. O, horror!
I blush to relate it. A negro rag baby, and I
n siuglo man, with n lady at each side, and
plenty moro in front and in tho rear. Suro
cnouge, hero was tho elephant and I had him
by tho horns. And to pleaso my companions,
yon will not wonder, I becamo perfectly reck
less and scattered tho money with a profuse
hand. The "l'ost Ofllce," tho "Quilt," and
other catch-penny games nil received their duo
share of patronage. Tho ico was broken and
my heart was as big as a beetle. Hark! What
is thu disturbance in that corner? Let us sec.
Oh nothing, they tell us, only the two voting
gentlemen who had drawn the Guess Cake in
company, not satisfied to tut it nnd thus mar
its beauty forccr, had agreed to "toss up" for
tho cake. Oh, human depratily! Just think.
of it, two joung men, sons of exemplary par
ents, gambling in presence of ministers and llie
community generally! Where will bo their
endP Our only hope is, that the wholesome
udvanco given them by the good old Deacon,
will bo heeded nnd salutary in its effects.
Tho evening is passed, 'mid with ninny re
grets and good byes, wo leave for home, the
ladies to count the new tlrcssis they had seen,
and I to count the cost, and find that I am
minus an X, plus a headache and sour stomach,
and the feeling that nt least a dollar and a half
of the above sum will get into the treasury. 1

NATURE OPPOSING THE PROGRESS OF
The following passage from Mr Ilucklo's His
tory of Civilization indicates in glowing colors
the obstacles which the prodigality of nature
may oppose lo the progress of man":
Ilrazil, which is nearly as largo as the whole
of Kurope, is covered with a vegetation of in
credible profusion. Indeed, so rank aud luxu
riant is the growth, that nature seems lo riot in
tho very wantonness of power. A great part
of this immenso country is filled with dense
and tangled forests, whose noble trees, blossom
ing in unrivalled beaut)-, aud exquisite with a
thousand hues, throw out their produce in end
less prodigality. On their summit are perched
birds of gorgeous plumage, which nestle rh
their dark and lofty recesses, llclow-, their
base and trunks aro crowned with brushwood,
creeping plants, innumerable parasites, all
swarming with life. There, too, are myriads of
insects oi every variety; reptiles of strange
aud singular form; serpents and lizards, spot
ted with deadly beauty; all of which find means
of existence in this vast work-shop and reposi
tory of nature. And, that nothing may bo
wanting to this land of marvels, tho forests aro
skirted by enormous meadows, which, reeking
with heat and moisture, supply nourishment to
countless herds of wild cattle, that browso and
fatten on tho herbage; while tho adjoining
plains, licit in another form of life, aro the
chosen nbodo of the subtlest and most ferocious
animals, which prey on each other, but which
it might almost seem no human power can hope
Hut ntnid this pnmp and splendor of nature,
no place is left for man. He is reduced to in
significance by tho majesty with which ho is
surrounded. The forests that oppose him nre
so formidable, that ho has never been aliio to
make head against them, never nblo to rally
against their accumulated pressure The wholo
of ilrazil, notwithstanding its immenso appar
ent advantages, has ulivnys remained entirely
uncivilized ; its inhabitants wandering Bavages,
incompetent to resist those obstacles which tho
very bounty of nature had put in their way. In
their country, the phjsicnl causes nre so active,
and do their work on n Rcalo ol such unrivalled
magnitude, that it has hitherto been found im
possible In escape from the effects of their
united action. The progress of agriculture is
slopped by impassable foiesls, nnd the harvests
nro destrojed by innumerable insects. The
mountains are too high lo scale, the titers too
wide to bridge; everything is connived to rc
pi ess the human mind, nnd keep b.tc't its rising
iimmuou. ii js inns mat tin ti. rgies ot na

tho mind, cowed by the unequal struggle, lias
nut only b en unable tn advance, but, without
foreign aid, it would undoubtedly have receded.

cal resources arc most powerful, where both
vegetables and nnimals nre most abundant,
where the soil is watered by tho noblest rivers,
and the const studded by the finest harbors
this immense ten itory, which istwelvc times
the size of Trance, contains a population not
exceeding six millions of people. Professor
Ansted adds to this his testimony to (ho effect
that the native Indians seem irredeemable, and
sunk in the must wi etched barbaiism and that
there appears no prospect whatever of any im
provement in the district, since man can find
no spot on much to commence his operations.
AX EXTRAORDINARY ELEniANT.
A little incident occurred last night, at Dan
Itice's during the representation of the Kast In
dian spectacle of the Klephai.t of Siam, which
desert cs nonce; especially ns it is not probable
that half a dozen people in the audience sup
posed that it was a pait of the business of the
lilat . In one of the scenes, tho Prince. Alnmnn.
zor, who had fallen into power of nn usurper,
is brought upon the stage in n box, by a party
of the usurper's adherents, who intend to throw
him into a hole. These nre frightened by the
approach of tho "Sacred Elephant," and lice
precipitately, leaving the. l'nnco enclosed in
what was intended for hiscoflin. Then accord
ing to the author, the elephant enters, opens
the box, and discovering her protege half suf
focated, plucks un orange from a tree nnd hands
it to mm, to revue Ins lainting energies. 11ns
the elephant Lalla llookh usually does in a man
ner deserving of commendation ; but, last night,
me orange was inadvertently bung in a diller
ent place from that which it had nreviouslv cc.
cupied, and poor Lalla I.ookh was in great trib
uhition in consequence. She reached for it
whertvit should have been, but not finding it,
commenced a seties of the most comical ma
nirmer. With n shout, quickly repeated
"trumpetings," or shrieks, she thiew- her trunk
wildly around in hopes of finding the missing
fruit, and ns if fearful that the audience would
bo disappointed by her failure, endeavored to
compensate for by going through an extempore
performance not in the bills placing herself
in various positions, sucn as she had been taught
to assume when performing in the ring. Fi
nally, coming to the conclusion that no orange
wns there, she paused for an instant, and then,
as if n happy suggestion had occurred to her,
grasped from the flats an imaginary one, which
she presented to the Prince with till due cere
mony, somewhat to his astonishment, for, being
in a position which would not allow him to see
what had been going on, he extended his hand
as usual to receive what proved to be merelv a
"freak of imagination" on the nart of tho e'le-
nhant. When it is recollected that the animal
was on the stage by herself, without any keeper
to control her movements, the wonderful intel
ligence she displavcd will be fullv nnnreeiatod.
and those who comprehend the s'ubterfuge she
emnlnved to deceive the audience, all concurred
in pronouncing it the most extraordinary dis
play of elephantine sagacity on record. City
W05IEN MORE SECRET THAN WE SUPPOSE.
All the Yenr Humid promulgates a new doc-
lime on this subject: "We laugh rt the worn'
onV tongue, and -vondcr when a woman keeps
a secret ; but every true woman keeps a box of
sunns: u.'iiua (u, ijn unil jiriiuie iiiuu.geiice.
The man's mysteries arc not hers ; if he cannot
keep them to himself, let bun expect them to be
blow n abroad. Her own secrets of love, of loss,
of self-denial, of unsuspected suffering, no
woman exposes altogether, even to her nearest
friend. There never lived a husband happy in
me true love ot nts wuo, wno lairly knew all
the depths of her mind about him. Everv man
profits stupidly Jiy the wise little perceptions
mui. arise so quicuy nun nave no utterance ex
cept in deeds, nf which we vncuelv ascribe the
fitness to special faculty called woman's tact.
Women, in short, keep to themselves four-fifths
of tho secrets of society, nnd do it with a win
ning air oi iranKness ait tneir own. A man
with a secret will be stonj-, or portentous, or
provokingly suggestive ; he will keep his mouth
shut ostentatiously. A woman is too absolute
ly secret to set up' a public sigh over whatever
may lie buried jn her mind. She gossips, prat
tles, pours out what she does not caro to hold,
with such an air of unreserved simplicity that
nil mankind is im stifled, aud savs, in friendly
jest, 'A woman only hides what she don't know.'
Among the uneducated poor, this difference be
tween the woman and the man is most con
spicuous. The innate powers of her sex place
her at once upon an eminence which man can
only reach by education. She must needs often
be tied to one in whom thera is not tho erain
of understanding requisite to the formation of
true sympathy, iiy tar the greater number of
wives ot uusKiiieu lauorers anu mechanics,
live more or less happily, and more or less con
scious of the hidden life within them, having
such a seal upon their minds nnd hearts."
A WESTERN CRITICISM.
A correspondent of the Buffalo Courier nar
rates tho following shrewd criticism passed by
a rough Western man on the Prairie Picture,
hy Heard, tho well known artist of Cincinnati:
A few mornings ago, as I was standing ad
miring as I confess myself quite fond of doing
thai beautiful deer group, a tall unmistakably
Western man came up behind me, nnd looked
over my shoulder. 1 noticed at one.' the quick
stoppage of breathing ; but to my surprise, the
stop was short, and something like a laugh
quickly succeeded. Looking up, I saw a ) el
low face over-spreading with a smile, nnd there
was a decided twinklo in the eje,
'Pshaw !" said he, "that's no picture, nftur
all. That aint no fair representation."
"Why," said 1, "that struck me as being a
pretty good painting."
"Muybe it's good enough for n paintiw,"
said tho Western man, "I don't say anything
agin that) but there never was no sccuo en
acted like it. Jest look at that tall rice grass
up there and then tho fern weeds below who
ever saw them grow together. Why, tho ono
grows on wet and the other on dry land. Hut
that's pretty wet land," ho continued, "and jest
?ec them deer's feet, how clean they be. They
ought to be ir.ud up to tho knees ; and at the
gait they're going at, they'd bo spotted with
mud all over. I tell ye, when I went to that
country first, tho men ekecrcd mo sometimes,
driving their wagons on to a wet prnire, but
they'd tell me it was all light and suro enough,
I would find n good bottom a foot down. Then
tho next thing 1 knowed they would bo giving
a pretty wide berth to a placo that looked, at
first sight, cdzacktly like tho other; and I soon
found an easy way to tell was by tho grassei."
"If any o'yo know that painter chap," said
the unconsciously keen critic, as ho prepared to
move off, "jest tell him but it's no use," he
t.iid, lowering his voice, "that's a good enough
city prairie !"

Xew Doon ron tiif. Capitol. A letter
from Home states that Rogers, the sculptor, is
there at work upon a luonzc door fur the Capi
tol at Washington, the estimated cost of which
is $23,000. There arc eight groups sculptured
upon it, representing scenes in the life of the
discoverer of America. The first scene repre
sents Columbus before the Council of Salaman
ca, unfolding his great theory. In the second
he is just setting out to seek royal aid. In the
third he is before the King and "Queen, laboring
to convince them. Isabella leans forward, and
seems interested, butFerdinand scarcely deigns
to heed the visionary enthusiast. In the fourth
he is confiding his son to the care of the monks,
while his ships wait. In the fifth he is landing
in great state upon St. Salvador. The sixth is
at Hispaniola, where one of the salors is bring
ing an Indian girl to the ship on his shoulders.
The ncxt is the great navigator's triumphal en
try into Harcelonia on his return. In the suc
ceeding one he is about to be sent home from
Cuba in chains and dis grace. The "last scene
of all" is death. The priests have administer
ed to him the sacrament ; one holds a crucifix
fur him to kiss; friends and attendants are
weeping around, and the spirit of tin; dying
man is about to start on that last great voyage
from which none return. In niches surround
ing these scenes are figures and busts of vari
ous royal personages contemporary with Colum
bus, including Ferdinand and Isabella, &c. '
Hints fop. Housekeepers. If the covers of
sofas and chairs are dirty, they may be cleansed
without being removed, 'by first washing them
over with warm water and soap, rubbed over
them with a flannel; then, before they are dry,
sponge them over with a strong solution of salt
been mixed. Ihe window of the room should
be opened, so as to secure a perfect drying, and
the colors and freshness of tire articles will be
restored. Floor cloths may be cleaned with a
mixture of magnesia, only milk-warm, followed
by warm water, in tho s'ame manner that car
pets are cleaned. They should be rubbed with
a dry flannel till nearly dried, then again wet
over w ith a sponge dipped in milk, and immedi
ately dried and rubbed with a flannel till the
polish is restored. This is a process much to
lie preferred to that of rubbing the cloth with
wax, which leaves it sticky and liable to retain
dust and dirt for n long time. Very hot water
should never" be used in cleaning iloor-cloths,
as it brings off the paint. Cleaning mirrors
and polished steel articles is an easy operation,
when rightly understood. The greatest care
should be taken in cleaning a mirror, to use on
ly the softest articles, lest the glass should bo
scratched. It should first be dusted with a
feather brush, then washed over with a sponge
dipped in spirits to remove the fly spots ; after
this il should be dusted with the powder bluo
in a thin muslin bag, and flnallv polished with
an old silk handkci chief. Polished steel arti
cles, if rubbed eveiy morning with leather, will
not become dull or rusty; but if lust has been
suffered to gather, it must bo immediately re
moved by covering the steel with sweet oil, and
allowing it to remain on for two days; then
spiinklo it over with finely powdered unslaked
lime, rub it with polishing leather.
FouNDF.n is Houses. I send you a recipe
for foundering in horses, which I have never
seen in print. 1 have used and recommended
it for ) ears, nnd so far as my experience goes, it
is a sure and speedy remedy. Take a spoonful
of pulverized alum pull the horse's tongue out
of Ins mouth a far as possible and throw the
alum down his throat, let go his tongue, and
hold his head up till he swallows. In six hours,
(no matter how bad the founder,) he will bo fit
for moderate sen ice. I have seen this remedy
tested with such perfect succession, that I
would not make five dollars difference in a
horse foundered (if dono recently) and one that
was not. E. L. PE1UIAM, Many, Oregon
The above recipe for founder in horses is
said to be an infallible remedy. Several gen
tlemen in this vicinity profess to speak from
practical knowledge having seen tho remedy
used with perfect success and in no instance
failing to effect a cure.
Flirtations of Mahwed Women. The
innocent flirtations of married women is one of
the abominations of modem society. Even a
desire for promiscuous admiration is wrong in
a w ife. The love of one and his approval should
be all that she ought to desire. Let her bo ev
er so beautiful, it is a disgusting and appalling
sight to sco her decoroting that beauty for pub
lic gaze; to sco her seeking the attention of
senseless fops around, nnd rejoicing in the ad
miration of other eyes than thoso of her hus
band. Her beauty should bo for him alone,
and not for the gaze of fools that flutter around
her. Thero is always among the sedate and
wiso a sensation of disgust when a married la
dy attempts to ensnare or entrap young men
by a profuse display of her charms, or an unlicensed-outlay
of her smiles. Such charms and
such smiles are loathsome to tho indifferent be.
