' How Would it Wcsfe?
Some sprightly woman suggests
that we Deed a genuine woman's
newspaper. It won Id -be published
and edited entirely by women,and
women should do even the report
ing. The unique feature of this
journal would be, that it would
look at the world wholly from a
woman's point of view, Lnd pre
sent an antithesis to .every other
paper ever heard of. To use' the
lady's language "instead ot ;e' ing
'what men think and So, an 4 how
women dres3 and look, it should
le devtt.:d mainly to telling how
men dress and look and what
men think and do." A paper of
this kind would certainly make a
eensation for a time.'
Influence of Flowers.
"What can give an air of refinev
ment to the worst place more ef
fectually than flowers? I know a
row of dingy-looking city houses,
in front of which a few ragged,
dirty trees drag on a miserable ex
istence.but between the end house,
end a dreary, blank wail there is
a triangular bit of ground, which
is literally carpeted with hllies of
.a it -m a
the valley whenever May comes
round. They scent the squalid
TW cnf tho, nl?a
street, and not a single pair of
leaves comes up without its atten
dant spray of blossom.
A Delicate Oppe ration,
The ordinary citizen finds him
self in many trying situations
where the most delicate tact is
necessary. To lend a man ((a
quarter" politely requires consid
erable self-control and coolness.
