A strong, free and happy womanhood seems
to demand in addition to moral, mental and
physical culture, tuoh a direction of prautical
energy as will make self-support as easy as it is
for men; Anna C. Oarlin.
Whether woman ii inferior, superior, the
'ual, or the complement of man, it still remains
true that each human being would thrive best
I'nder the fullest culture and with tho largest
liberty to grow. Grace Anna Lewi.
Girls in their teens should learn the worth of
money and the judioious use of it. If poor, they
should earn it honestly, and then expend it in
gaining an education, save it for the emergen
cies of the future. Sarah M. Perkin:
The field of literature is conquered for wo
men. There are no longer bars or obstructions
of any sort in the way. A woman who has any
thing to Bay i privileged to say it; and if it is
worth hearing tho world will loud u attentive
ear. Mr: E. B. Duffry.
What is noeded is free, untrammeled access
of womon to all fields of labor, aad equal indus
trial training with men. No girl should be con
sidered educated for life till sue is in possession
ot a trade, profession, or business that will give
her a living. Mr: Lktmort.
The charitable institutions of the future will
doubtless be practically managed ohielly by wo
men. Let ui see to it that these women have
ininda so carefully and perfectly organised that
the charity of the future shall uot wi only emo
tional, but wise and reasonable Anna V.
It is often lamented that the female teachers
in our publn- schools change so often, because
they leave the schools to be married 1 but I be
liuve this is far from being an unmixed evil, bat
that on the contrary, this fresh young element
has its value in the schools, and that whatever
evil arises is more than compensated by the
knowledge of the schools which is thus gained
by the future mothers of the community, who
can exercise so powerful an influence upon edu
cation. Hdna D. Vhenry.
Moan Ohnamrntx. A beautiful ornament for
the sitting-room can be made by oovering a
common glass tumbler with moss, the latter
fastened in place, by sewing cot ten wound
around. Then glue dried moss upon a aancer
into which set the tumbler, filling it and the
remaining space in the saucer with loot earth
from the woods. Plant the former with a
variety of ferns, and the latter with wood
violate. On the edge of the grata also plant
some of the nameless little evergreen vine,
which bears rod (scarlet) berries, and whose
dark, (lossy, ivy-like foliage will trail over ike
fresh bl an and white of the violate with beauti
ful effect. Another good plan ia to fill a rather
deep plate with tome of the nameless but beau
tiful silvery and light green and delicate pink
mosses, which are met with in profusion in all
the swamps and marshes. This can be kept
fresh and beautiful aa long as it ss not neglected
to water it profusely onca a day. It most, of
count, bo placed in the shade, or the mots will
blanch aad din. Ia the center of this, a clamp
of large aaora violets should be placed, adding
ome curious lichens and pretty fungus growth
from the harks of forest treat, and a few oonee,
sheila and pebbles.
