A genllcni"ii, whohai travtled, recently
i c.illi'd our attention to the great ditTeronce
' in women of diHeretil nations in the manner
of holding up their drese", o ai to avoid
' suiliiig. Our l.ulics who are in the daily
' habit of swe"ing the crossings with their
'costly nil. ikirts, ought to take a lesson or
j two in the ccii lice. It is said in Paris, whirc
I the streets are inoro lilthy than our own,
'.i lady will thread them for hours, without
I coining in contact with any thing, and with-
' out in the least "oiling her skirts, while in
Loudon, w here the rtreets are well swept, mid
jnro cotiijiirutm-ly clean, a lady, when she
sudks, disilaiiis to raise her dress from the
' mini, .ind sutler accordingly. The ladies
vol' our Atlantic cities have a peculiar habii
'if c.itehing up oil" side of the drey, by the
lliuinbaiiil tingcr, as if the) were about to
"tart in a fancy datico. The consequence is,
a display of a pretty lxiol and anMo on one
side, and the draggling of the whole of the
other side of the dress iu the dirt. This is
the almost invariable practice of our Amcri-
I cm ladies, who appear either too indolent or
fill to take the trouble to proiierly
preserte their skirts from soiling. Now
itii.l tin u a tiiirni-onti lady crosses the street,
' her skirts carcfullv taken up as far as the
top of the b tot nil round, and daintily yet
lirn.ly held iu one hand. It is a tiling. i! is
said, easily learn-d, and is really well worth
the trouble. .V. O. Crcicrnt.
Story ol Toolh Brntlica.
j The following story is told by Mrs. Moo
die, in her work on Canada, called "Life in
the dealings." It is related as a fact by
her, but it is a tery old westcrisui done up
in new clothes :
A gentleman who was traveling in com
pant with Sir A , told mean anec
dote i if Iiiln, and how he treated an imperii-in-lit
f. Ilott mi board one of the lake boats,
that gn -ally atun-dl me. Hie state cabins
in tlie-v sleainers open into the great sa
loon : nnd.ns they are. often occupied by
iiiarrii-d people, each Inrtli contains two
Im-iI, one jiLiced alBitetho oilier. Now it
nileti happens, when the Iwat is greatly
erottded, that two passengers of the same
se. are forced to oceupv the miiiic sleeping-
rioin. This was Sir A 's case, and
In-was obliged, though tery reluctnutly, to
share his hleeping iipartment with a well-
dressed American, but et ideutly of low s'hm
ding, from the familiarilt of his manners
and tin bad graiiiluar lie n-ed. In the
morning, it was neci-onry for ono gentle
man to rise bi fore Ihe'othcr, as tho space iu
flout of llu-ir 'K-rths was too narrow to al
low of in. to than one performing his ablu
tions at a time. Our Yankee made a fair
Mart, and had nearly completed his toilet,
w lieu he suddenly spied a tooth-brush and n
lix of tooth-powder in the drci--.iiig-cae,
his companion 1ml 1 l .jk ii ii.miii the wash
stand, t'pon these he pounced, and hat
ii ' made a lil-end use of them, he flung
lln iu luik into .ic cn-e, ami sal ion Up
on the nub chair the room contained in or
.lei in gi.itift his curiosity by watching how
his iiaitiit-r went tlirough the same process.
L'teatlt nmioteil liy tun lei-
l i.raiii-i., L'ot out of lel, and, ilaciiig
the w.ishli.'iud-biisiuou the floor, put liis feet
into the water and eoiuiui-uced scrubbing
his toe t1.til7.with I he desecrated tooth-brush.
Jonathan wati-ln-d hi" motements a few se-i-niitl"
iu silent horror; at length, unable (o
11.nt.1in himself, he exclaimed:
'Well, stranger, that's the dirtiest use I
et er see a tooth-brush put to, anyhow !'
'I saw il put In a dirtier, just now,' said
Sir A, ten lonllv. 'I nlttats ue it

and patting her foot nervously, 'I don't lee

yours, besides, I've promised to go thoro
Hurry mudo no reply, and in a few mo
menta was on his way, to hit office.
Mary stood behind the curtain, and look
ed after him as ho went down street. There
was an uncomfortable stifling sensation in
her throat, and something like a tear glit
tering in her eye. Mary was vexed, she
was sure of thai, lie had goueoff for the
first lime since their marriage, without the
iittcctionatu good-byo that was usual with
him, even when they parted only for an
hour or two. And so site wandered, rest
less mid unhappy, into her little sleeping
It was quite a little gem. There were
statues, and pictures, aud vases, all gifts
from him either before or since their marriage-
each ono had a history of Its own,
sonic tender association connected with Har
ry, There a boquct, still fresh and fragrant
that he hud purchased on his way home,
the day before, to gratify her passion for
dowers. There was a choice edition of po
ems they were rending ih,e night before,
with Mary's name written on the leaf, in
Harry's bold, handsome hand. Turn where
sho would tome proof of devotion met her
eye. Hut Mrs. May! She was to smart
aiid satirical ! sho would make so much
sport of her, for being 'ruled' so by Harry !
Hadn't she told him all men were tyratits
and this was Harry's first attempt to gov
em her. No, uo, ft wouldu't do to yield.
So the pretty ct ening dress was taken out;
tho trimmings re-adjusted, and remodeled
and' all the ct cetera decided. Yes, the
would go, the had quite made up her mind
to that. Then she opened her jewel-case ; a
little note fell at her feet. Sho knew the
contents very well. It was from Harry,
(slipped slily into her hand on her birth day,
witii that pretty bracelet.) It couldn't do
any harm to read it again. It xvas very lover-like
for a year old husband but she lik
ed it I Dear Harry, and she folded it back,
and sat down, more unhappy -than ever,
with her hands crossed in her lap, and her
mind in a most pitiable state of irresolution.
Perhaps, after all, Harry was right about
Mrs. May ; and if he wasn't, one liair of hit
bend was north more to her than all the wo
men in tho world. He never said an un
kind word to her, never I ho had anticipa
ted every wish; ho had been to attentive
and solicitous when sho was ill. How could
,hc grieve him t
I-oto conquered. Tho pretty robe was
folded away, the jewels returned to their ,
cases, nml with a merry heart, Mary sat
down to aw ait her husband's return.
Tho lamps were not lit in tho drawing
room w hen Harry came up street. She had
gone then ! after all lie noil said ! he pass
ed slowly through tho hall; entered the
dark and deserted room, and threw himself
on the sofa witli a heavy sigh. Ho was
not angry, but ho was grieved and disap
pointed. ' Tho first doubt that orcopt over
the mind, of the affection of ono -we love Is
so painful !
