The Court house is distressingly quiet

Some of the mill owners in Hood
River are thinking seriously of building
a narrow gauge railroad from that place
to a point near the Elk beds. This road
would be used principally for logging
purposes, traversing a fine belt of timber
but it would also carry passengers
the foot of Mt. Hood, and to within five
or six miles of Cloud Cap Inn. This
would no doubt largely increase the
number of visitors to that famous resort

A Point for Educating Girls.
Hot long ago it was the good fortune
tat the writer to attend a baseball match
between two nines composed of amateur
players who years ago were .famous at
the bat, in the field and on the bases.
As the men walked out upon the field in
the uniforms that for years they had not
warn certain peculiarities common to all
of tbem attracted my attention. The
gait was inclined to be mincing, the
waist hue was under the armpits and not
over the hips, the head fell forward and
the shoulders were a little bowed and
the back slightly humped; the forearms
re thin and white and the calves of
the legs had disappeared. The throwing
and catching and running reminded me
strongly of some other animal.
For several Innings I watcned these
gentlemen, and as a ball was knocked at
the short stop, and as he put ont his
hands timidly and then threw to first
base a gently dropping, ball instead of on
a straight line, the whole thing revealed
itself to me. They looked and acted like
womenl ' -
There was the same physical timidity.
the same stiltlike running, the same
awkwardness in any feat that demanded
that the hands and arms be need over
the head, the same care of legs and arms.
as though they were brittle, which one
may remark when a woman chases after
a street car or throws a ball, or attempts
any unusual gymnastics. It occurred to
me then and there that the early train
ing of children was largely at fault in
making these differences of physique be
tween them. If as a man ceases to ex
ercise he becomes in his movements more
and more feminine, it is plain that if he
exercised in his boyhood and youth no
more than the average girl he wonld
grow up to be more like her in physique.
And again, if exercise is so largely re
sponsible for the difference it must be
true that the girl could be brought np,
if not to the masculine standard, at any
rate to a much higher standard of physi
cal well being. Boston Gazette.

A Solution of the Servant Question.
The servant girl question was under
debate in a coterie of ladies np town, and
bitter words were spoken by some of the
housekeepers when telling of their trou
bles with housemaids, scullery maids,
nursery maids, chambermaids and kitch
en mains. The strain of bitterness was
interrupted by one of the ladies, who
"I never have any trouble with my do
mestic help. I keep a housemaid and a
cook, who have been with me for five
years, and I do not know that they are
extraordinary specimens, though I got
them through an advertisement. One of
them is an Irish-American, the other a
German. They say that I treat them
welL I do not overwork them or keep
them at service from dawn till midnight.
I dont scold them for every fault. I
have a nice bedroom for them, and they
keep it neat.
"I let them go off in the daytime once
or twice every week to take a walk, or
to visit their friends or to do their shop
ping. I talk to them' at times about
their gowns, bonnets, shawls and ruffles.
I see that they have something else than
scraps or leavings to eat. : I pay them
their wages on the first of every month.
I help them to do things now and then.
They give me their confidence. I show
them that I take an interest in them,
and my husband is considerate toward
them. I don't believe they will ever
leave our nousenoid tail tney get mar
ried, and my cook i a widow who says
she will never marry again.. I cannot
see why so many people should have so
much trouble with their domestic help,
or talk so often about the servant girl
question. The ladies in the coterie to
which this contented housekeeper thus
spoke did not feel very well when her
words were ended, and soon left for
their respective abodes with a new
notion under their blooming bonnets.

Dumas' Youngest Daughter.
I lately met at a reception a French
gentleman who is well acquainted with
the Dumas family, and he gave me an
amusing account of Mile. Jeannine, now
the Comtesse dHauterive. As a girl she
was always wild and jolly and head
over heels, possessing much of her fa
ther's wit, and talking slang without
end in a word, thoroughly "fin de
siecle." She mortally affronted one day
an antiquated beau and member of the
Jockey club, who BtHl prided himself on
his personal charms and prowess as
lady killer. This personage called one
day upon Mme. Dumas and requested to
see her daughter.
A servant was accordingly sent to
summon mademoiselle. Then came
voice from the staircase announcing in
audible tones: "I shall not come. When
I want to study antiquities I will go to
the Liouvre. And the old gentleman
never forgave her. At her own wed
ding the other day during the reception
that followed the ceremony her bride
groom noticed that she was looking at
him with a peculiarly pensive expres
sion. "Why do yon look so sad?" he said
to her in a whisper. "Are yon not hap
py, Jeannine?" "I was only thinking,"
she responded, "of the good friend that
I lost in you when yon became my hus
band." Cor. Philadelphia Telsgrapb
