FOR THE HOUSEWIFE
All housekeepers worthy the name
aspire to eleaulinesa without stopping
to think that it is of three sorts—tra
ditional, a-sthetic aud aaultsry. It
may be remarked lu passing that the
last of these three is the only one that
bears any intimate relatiou to godli
Traditional cleanliness was the strong
point of the old fashioned model house
keeper. She directed her energies to
ceaseless scrubbings and scourings, but
was the sworn enemy of air and sun
shine. She rejoiced in such abomina
tions as feather beds, cotton stuffed
coverlids, allover carpets aud shnllar
homes for enterprising disease germa,
and she canxl little about the location
of the well provided it was handy for
her persistent but misdirected cleans
-Esthetic cleanliness, as still prac
ticed in nine bosses out of teat, is even
more heedless of the laws of health. It
was in deference to its demands that

demands is that whatever it fancies
unsightly shall be covered up or put
out of the way.
Now, sanitary cleanliness—it might
also be called real cleanliness in dis
tinction from the other sorts—is a very
different matter. It rests on the two
great sciences of physiology aud bac
teriology, cud it cannot be successfully
secured without at least a rudimentary
knowledge of the principles on which
it is founded. The old fashioned house
keeper hated dust because it looked
untidy and provoked the adverse crit
icism of her sex. Her granddaughter
hates it because it excites pulmouary
diseases or is likely jio contain stray
germs inimical to health. The practi
cal difference Iles in the fact that the
scientific housekeeper will make war
not only against the dust in sight, but
against the dust which she merely sus
pects of existing. She has seed through
the microscope the secrets of air and
water, and her standard for the purity
of the household surroundings is raised
by her knowledge of the invisible dan
