Hose Klngsloy in Wide Awake : Lot me toll you how wo wore taught to help those who helped us iu our dear old homo at Evorslcy Rectory. Of course in a unsy house where everyone ono lias work to do , the servants cannot bo helped much week days : c.\ccpt by tlioughtfulness in little things. Hut there is the seventh day , when the chil dren have no lessons to do. This was what wo wcro tauclit to look upon as the "helpers' ' " day of rest , as far as wo could make it so. In the morning breakfast was cnrlior than usual. While wo wcro breaKfasting the maids were emptying our baths for they wore too heavy for ns children. As soon as breakfast was over wo trotted off to our rooms , made the beds , folded up ami put away all our clothes , dusted nnd in fact put tilings straight all round. Then we ran down to the dining rppm nnd laid the table for dinner ; and capital butlers we all became , I assure you. By these means the nmlds wcro all ready in their nice Sunday dresses to go to church With ns all at 11. Dinner Sunday no matter who was with us was at 1 o'clock instead of 7. Tliis was the only hot meal in the day. No cooking was done after 1 o'clock , as our supper was cold. At both dinner nnd supper the servants were sent away And wo waited at table. I laugh now when 1 think of the faces of horror of learned men or gallant soldiers who had come down to spend Sunday in the dear old rectory or ridden over from Sand- 'burst or Aldorshot to the morning ser vice. The ngoiiics they wont through at being waited on by the daughters of the 'house ' ! The struggles they made to bo .allowed to change their own plates ! And [ their resigned submission when , quietly told by their host , "It is the way of the house ! " Thnt was how wo were made to help the faithful and devoted servants who spent their lives in helping us. It was not tnueli. But it gave them an al most free Sunday. A Bonanza Queen's Crown < Jnwel4. Eclectic Magazine : It is said in Paris that Mrs John Mackay owns the linost jewels in the world. Two specimens certainly take precedence over any of the kind that are known. Ono is a sap phire that she bought for 1150,000 from a Itussian princo. It measures a centimetre , about four-tenths of an inch in diameter , nnd has no dcfeot. She also owns the most splendid emerala known. Among her other toys la a necklace of pearls worth $100,000 , and a set of corals , com prising a brooch , crown , bracelet , etc. , nil of the must delicate rose color , each piece covered with diamonds. It took two years searching to complete the col lection of gems , and there exists only one other like it , and that belongs to thu queen of Portugal. Further than these is a pair of solitaires worth $ 125,000. Ono of them was bought at the sain of the effects of the duke of Brunswick , and the jawolnr who was commissioned with se curing its mate was upward of two years in getting it. Most of these jewels , as well as a great quantity of valuable lace , will probably como , some day , to the Princess Colonna , the daughter of Mrs. Wackay. . Women Braver Than Men. Heading ( Pa. ) Herald : I was talking with a dentist the other day , anil , much to my surprise ho told mo that women underwent dental operations much better than men. llo said ho vastly-preferred women patients , because they were less trouble , submitted more easily to what was necessary to bo done and bore the little hurts necessary to such operations with greater fortitude. "A woman has much more endurance,11 be said. "As BOOH as you begin to operate on a man's toutli ho begins to fidget and shrink , nnd every time you touch n tender spot 'ho ' wants to jump out of his chair. His conduct makes the operator nervous and tired The average woman however , will eit through a whole afternoon of drilling and filing and hammering at her teeth like n major. Yon nro able to do moro more satisfactory work for bur , and feel leas fatigued when you have finished. A female gives a somewhat louder scream than a man when shu has a tooth pulled , but she approaches the forceps more bravely nnd is not BO apt to have the toothache scared away by the sight of the xlmitist , ns is no often the case with the patient of the male persuasion. " Making Themseltes Healthy. Now York Sun : The women are doing more , perhaps , to make themselves healthy and pretty than they ever did or liad a chance to do in modern times be fore. HorsebacK riding , swimming , walking , exorcising in gymnasiums , sparring , playing games that strengthen muscles and develop forms , and studying hygiene with as little study and as much fun as possible are some of their devices. Why , the young women are undergoing n revolution ! Their mothers don't know what to make of them though candor compels the admission that a great many of the mothers are paying as much at tention to the subject as any ono- except that they may not all have the now Kcienco down as finely a * that lily of the etugo who is described in thu provincial papers as taking a cold bath every morning - ing to preserve her health , washing her face with cold cream instead of water so us to avoid wrinkles , and walking like a postman to keep herself muscular. Mia * nraildnn'H nig Income. Cosmopolitan : Morel-writing now- ndays is a precarious and not very profit nblu nailing. A very fair price , as thing * , U fa.OOO for the serial rights of a full ingth story , and assuming that the au thor makes $100 by the throu-volumo edi tion , and as much by a cheap edition , his total profit would amount to $3,800 notgroat do&l , considering the labor nnd time that the writing of a novel ia volve * . On the other hand , there are ua doubtedly prizes , and if the writer nmchoa the lop of the tree and is aa pro iillo a * UU Druddon ho can make , if noi a great fortune , at any rate a handsomn neoino by his pen. Miss Draddon , I should think , makes more money by tic- Jon , than any other writer of the day. ! lcr fertility is prodigious I believe Miss Hraddon gem about $5ODO for the serial rights of a now story , and as she writes something like two a year , or at the rate of three In two years , her takings from this source alone must bo considerable. There may bo two or three writers who command ns high a price , but none who s equally popular and prolific. Whether her works will live is another thing. I am speaking of the present. London Needlewomen. All the Year Hound : The women en gaged in the shirt trade are to the full as ill oil' , as badly paid and as much to bo iiltied ns were their sister.s in the dav when Hood sang their sorrows and suf ferings. The woman who is solely de pendent upon hhop shirtmaking starves rather than lives by It. She soon be comes in very deed The seamstress , lean and weary and wan , With only the ghosts ot garments on , who In poverty , hunger and dirt , .Sews atonco with a double thread A shroud as well as a shirt. Happily many of the shirt hands are not dependent upon the earnings of their lecdlo. Numbers of thu married women of the poorer classes work at the shirt trade with a view of supplementing thn scanty wages of their husbands , nnd the additional income thus gained , though it may bo but three or four shillings a week , sensibly increases tno comfort of .ho household. Considering thu wretched prices paid for the work , the surprising : hing is that the women should earn even as much at it , as some of them do. Take the buttonholing the leading brancli of the work in Tenement street. The holes are rough punched in lie factories , the work of the outdoor lands being to stitch them round. This buttonholing is admittedly "niggling , " work , and yet the rate at which it is paid for by the sweaters is a penny per do/on collars. As each collar has three notes the hand , who finds her own needle and cotton , has to stitcli thirty-six holes for a ( cuny. Kvon HO , some of the experts by working long hours , by rising early on summer mornings and sitting late on winter fights , by living on food that is 'ready to bo put into the mouth , " clnelly bread and butter , and eating as they work ; by acting on these lines some of the btittonholers will earn as much as eight or nine shillings per week. The > rices p.iid by the manufacturers who ; lvo it out in the tint instance are prob- tbly such as would enable a skilled and ndustrious hand to make a living wage ; butas matters stand such men are al- nest compelled to employ middlemen , and the tender mercies of the sweater arc cruel. The Swedish Nightingale. ' * ) Mate. London Truth : Count do Casa do \Iiranda \ , now the lawful husband of Christine Nilsson , is the son of a lady who was governess to the late Queen Mercedes , and who wa ? raised to the rank of marchioness by King Alfonso. The count a good many years ago led a lioulovardicr sort of lifo in Pans. After the Spanish republic collapsed ho was en rapport with the Spanish embassy. His particular function was to work the press. Those journalists who wore m relation with him found him the pink of obliging courtesy , nnd ho was in a good many instances bon comarado. Ho could bo a "tartar" when ho liked , but ho pre ferred not to be ono often. If my mem ory does not deceive mo he was arrested in the winter of the siege as a French spy by the Prussians and taken to Ver sailles to bo interrogated by liismarok in person. The terrible chancellor made a conquest of him. New York Girls Who Walk. The New York Walking club there is a club , of course. Young America docs nothing singly has been organized within a month. Its binds its members , "Hociety" girls all , to live miles a day in fair weather , to two miles in foul. It has a club pace , a club costume and a club rendezvous. Three miles and a half an hour is the rate of motion it insists upon , and Wednesday afternoons are fixed for its grand meets. In the matter of weara bles It is at once latitudinarian and spe cific. It has abjured the corset was the like over heard before ? and high heels are a tabooed barbarism. Long skirts arc on the forbidden list , and walking jackets , with coat sleeves as far removed as possible from the arm-confining dolman man , are written down arpong the neces saries. Women's Rights in France. A French deputy has made u proposal to amend the law relating to women's civil rights in Franco. There is much need for some alteration , for , although women have have perhaps played a more important role in the history of Franco than any other country , they have been persistently refused the ordinary liberties which the Hex enjoys elsewhere. As the law stands at present , women in Franco may do what they like with their personal property ; they may carry on . business as merchants and In many cases they are 'head of commercial houses but their privileges stop there. Single or married they cannot bo witnesses iu civil suits ; they cannot attest a birth or a death , tes tify to the identity of a person known to them , nor take part in family councils. M. Ernest Lofovro's proposition , which will likely bo adopted by the chamber , will remove these inequalities. Adventures of Two Plucky Girls. St. Paul ( Minn.l dispatch in Now York Herald : A singular and romantic story comes by telegraph from Windom , Minn. , a small town in tha southwestern part of the state. Two young children wan dered into thu town on Saturday oven- ing. Their ages were about fourteen and sixteen. They gave their names as Charles and Hertio IJyers , of Hochestcr , N. Y. It was soon discovered thnt they were girls in boys' clothing , and then they admitted their names were Katie and Lily Hyors. Their story was that when very small they lived at Lindsay , Out. They removed to Rochester after their parents' death , being taken there by u brother , W. A , Hyors , now a resi dent of Calgary , Northwest territory. Being badly treated at Hooiioster , they started without money to join their brother at Calgary. In order to gel away they dressed in male attiio. Their trip from Rochester to Wiudom was made on foot and in box cars as tramps. Tnuy are cared for at Windom. W. A Uyern , at Calgary , has been communi cated with. Gosulp for the Ladles.

At the professional matinee tendered by tlmo.liernhardt to the actors and actresses of New York the flower of the profession timed out. They went there entluisias- ic , they grew wildly so as they sat hrough the four acts of "Fedora , " osssd flowers upon the stage , cheered vitli exceptional intensity , wept with ervor.and generally "took on" in a great vay. It was a gala day for the French itar , for the American stars and starlets , and for the managers , and in fact for everybody. During 1830 the higher classes for cirls n St. Petersburg were attended by 713 Indents , a considcarblo increase upon he figures in former years. Ever since 804 it has been possible tor women to ob- ain university degrees in Russia , and in L870 the ranks of medicine were opened o them. Sweden followed the example n a few months , and was therein soon oincd by Norway. At the recent ex amination of medical students at St. 'ctursburg ' fifty-four ladies obtained the medical diploma. The thirty-eight omalo. students who have entered their names for the next examination will bo ho last to bo admitted to the Russian chool of medicine for women , which is about to be closed. Mine. Christine Nilsson , now Countess 2asa Miranda , was informed by an as- rologor that she would have trouble : rom two causes lire and lunatics.

Dr. Curran said to a Now York Herald re porter recently that the pope had directed Cardinal Gibbons to say for him to Dr. Mc- Glynn that ho saw nothing so far In t.ie land theories advanced by Dr. McClynn that vras contrary to Catholic teaching. Cardinal Uibbuns has communicated this expression of opinion of the holy father to Dr. McUlynn. Much interest has been excited by the an nouncement that Captain Condor , ot the Palestine exploration expedition , has suc ceeded in deciphering and translating the lilttlte Inscriptions. Ten principal texts are known , and Captain Cornier claims to have Interpreted all of them. Three of his translations , published In the London Times , are Invocations to the sun and water gods , and , appaiently , ' to the divinity ot tlio moon. A correspondent of the Boston Watchman pictures the perils of American students in UerniHiiy. "When It is known , " ho writes , upon what waves ot unbelief the student In a German university is compelled to ride. what tides of rationalism ha must stem , and what billows of positive Infidelity he Is to encounter , It behooves him and his friends to look wull to the boat In which he stirts out. It will not do for him to begin to paddlu with the oar of 'higher criticism' or rely upon the Hteam ot 'New Theology' to carry him through. " Dudley Ca t or Countenance.

How Musical Critics Grow Wealthy Musical Herald : A man has just died in Now York worth $503,000. This in itself is not very strange , but when the statement is added that ho was a musical critic , the world at largo may be curious to know how it is that musical critics grow so wealthy. Wo will gladly throw homo light on the subject. The music critic generally suffers from only ono malady. The constant chafing of the scissors used in cutting the coupons from his bonds often produces warts upon his fingers. That'll warts the matter with , him. Ho docs not got rich upon hlainlary. He attains wealth by economy , like the pretty actress who received a salary ol 919 a week , and was M economical that aha aaved | 50,0 0 out of it la ttiro * year * . rownnwsnnpcrs pay their critics more than f 500 a wock.wmlo In Boston salaries have been known to drop as low as $200.
