may it not bo tlio last. Ilut whothor
Mary Mountain's "gems" or Mr Oldon's
turnipH furnished tho tozt and tho inspir
ation, I'm in doubt. And, fnrthor, I want
him to explain how it is, that ho disolnims
tho woman's (?) ambition of obtaining tho
last word, provided it bo a good, trim
word. Ho "don't beliovo in conceding to
prejudice, ovon tho valno of a turuipl"
Thon why shonld ho throw a corky old
turnip ut us women until ho can
"domonstrato," that to havo tho last word
is moro a woman's limn u man's ambition?

which has, most likely, as oft beforo es
caped to cover, to bo again and uguin un

women kindly considerate. It was told
of tho wife of ono of our Vermont Gov
ernors, that onco on a time company from
town made them a Hying visit and partook
of tho mid-day meal with tho Governor,
his wifu and hired harvesters. Ono of
tho lady visitors expressed her astonish
ment, that Mrs. Galusha should "sit at
tablo with hired help." "Well," gravely
replied tlm Governor's wife, "I confess ft
don't look quite right and I often fool
that 1 ought to wait and servo them Urst."
Ho you see the question is by no means
n now one. And 1 might not suggest a
now thought oven, by asking why women,
whoso special vocation is that of house
keeper 1 should say housemother will
persist in practically degrading that voca
tion by excluding from tho family table
mid sitting room, decent young women,
while admitting to them tho hired helpers
of their hiiHhunds, kinsmen of theso girls
perhnis, or youths who associated with
them in their own homes? Is tho brood

God, who instituted labor and made it

My friend L. hod boon bcroft of on excel
lent wifo and having several children,
some of thorn noarly grown, bo thought it
wise to chooso for a socond companion a
strangor to the community in whioh ho
livod and accordingly wroto to an old
friond, a olorgyman, somo hundreds of
miles distant, inquiring if thoro woro a
snitablo person in his vicinity, oto. Tho
reply being in tho affirmative, my friond
mado tho journoy and found a maiden
lady of vorv agreoablo manners spending
somo umo in tno laraiiy or tils friond tbo
clergyman, Af tor a ploasant visit of two or
three days, being about to roturn bimo, my
friond mentioned to tho lady, that ho was
in quest of a companion and boing pleased
with hor socioty, would liko hor to toll
him frankly if thoro existed in hor mind
any objection to a nioro intimato acquaint
anco. Tho lady having confessed that, so
far, sho hud discovered no insuporabio
liar to a moro intimato acquaintance, ho
ontorod upon preliminaries and with a
viow to boston tho dosirod undorstouding,
"mado a clean breast" of his faults, tho
principal boing "a hot tompor that
wouldn't bear provocation, but Boon
cooled," oto. Tito lady listonod btilmodo
no remark ami my friond anxious to win
a response Anally added, that us ho "had
confessed his besetting sin, ho would liko
hor to bo equally frank." Looking up with
a misohiovoiiH twinkle in hor oyo, sho ro
pliod "Well, Mr. L., I om not a putty
womonjyou can nuiko tho tiro fly." "Ami,"
said my friond, in concluding his story,
"tho possibility of making tho tiro fly,
has effectually iirovontod unv exhibitions
of my hot temper to tho little woman at
homo." N. B. Tho world has no furthor
use for putty women or putty mon.

The Woman's Dress Question.
Mrs. Lostor was in this afternoon, and
wo discussed tho much-mooted topic of
woman's dross. She thioks thoro need bo
no conspiouous reform inaugrated. If
tho sonsiblo womon all oyer the country,
who are doubtless in tho majority, will
each in her own way attire horself simply
ana appropriately with suitable regard
and disregard for fashion, tho movemont
will result, sho thinks, in all that can
reasonably bo desired. Womon who have
no brains aro woll enough' employed in
ruffling thoir skirts; thoso who havo, can
afford to wear them plain rather a Bharp
remark for Mrs. Lester to make, but con
taining a kornol of truth.
Tho flowers got thomsolvcs up boauti
fully in all rich and harmonious coloring,
in miraculously flno texturo and with
most elaborato garnituro; how thoy adorn
our houses and our tablcsl What would
tho earth bo without them? Corn and
cabbago, beans, pumpkins and potatoes,
aro vory useful in their woy, but hardly
appropriate for bouquets; wo must havo
roses and violots and dabliiB and tulips,
both for color, form and fragranoo. This
was my friend's viow of tho caso,
Tho fact is. when a lady is simply and
tastefully dressed, in neither extromo of
tno fashion, and thinks nothing ol it hor-
self, scarce any ono can romombor, after
having boon in her socioty, wuat buo nan
on. It sooms to mo that one's dross
should by all means correspond with one's
ago, porsonal appearance, circumstances
and character. Diamonds on coat so
hands loso half their lustro; gay ribbons
about cadaverous and wrinklod faces ox
cito mirth or dorision in pooplo of tasto;
and oxponsivo clothing on poor pooplo
starts questions that should novor bo rais
ed. When tho summer solstico of youth is
past and wo should begin to think longing
lv of the robos of white worn by tho saints,
what a pity to bo occupied with tho vanities
and fripperies of ophomoral fashion.

a littlo, while thoy aro reduced to staring
out of tho window, or to an involuntary
effort to penetrato somo insignificant

album is usually regarded as a sufficient
resourco in moments liko these, but is
thoro not something akin to indelicaoy in
allowing strangers and ordinary acquain
tances to turn tho likenesses of our noarost
