PRESENCE OF MIND.!
GIRLS SHOULD ACQUIRE IT.
The Duty of PareHts Teach. Your
Children the Art or Self-
Presence of mind is a quality much
talked of, much honored, and little
cultivated ; yet, like most other good
things in this world, requires culti
vation to bring it to any degree of
perfection, for in very few cases
is it a natural gift. Some people
there are, doubtless, to whom it
comes naturally and by instinct to
do the right thing at the right time
and place, but they are few in
number. Then, again, some people
are by nature cooler-headed than
their neighbors, and do not scream
and otherwise become useless Just
when their services are required.
But this quiet composure, though
very valuable, is not quite the same
as presence of mind. The latter
consists not only in having your wita
ready for use, but in knowing how to
use them and being sufficiently calm
and steady in mind to remember
and turn to account that knowledge.
From the earliest possible age
children should be taught self-control
and the instinct of trying to remedy
any mistake or accident they may
encounter. Teach your child', if he
cuts himself anywhere, at once to
hold the two sides of the cut tightly
together, to stop the bleeding, and
then to cry if ho likes ; instead of,
a3 children usually do, dancing
about, howling and shaking the
wounded part violently, thus making
it bleed and smart doubly. Show
him that if he burns or scorches him
self, he can save himself much pain
by covering the place with wet
soap, or cold cream, or fuller's earth,
or violet powder, all or any of which
are pretty sure to be within reach in
But if boys require to be taught
self-control, doubly so do girls.
Having, by nature, weaker nerves
and a more vivid imagination, they
shrink from pain, suffering, and
danger in a fashion utterly unin
telligible to their brothers. But the
more natural this shrinking is, the
more carefully should they be taught
to govern it. Girls should acquire
at least the rudiments of nursing,
and learn the best and easiest
attainable remedies for the or
dinary accidents of daily life, just
as certainly and as a matter of course
as they are taught to sew and to
read. Especially should quiet and
coolness be impressed upon them.
Calmness is not insensibility, though
many people confound them. A girl
is not hard-hearted and unfeeling
because she can witness painful
sights, and if need be lend a steady,
firm band to the doctor or nurse.
On the contrary, she has usually
twenty times the sympathy and un
selfish kindness of that delicate little
damsel who has no command what
ever over herself, and fills the room
with shrieks, winding up by running
away the very moment an extra
hand might be useful. It mayseem
harsh to say so, but those "dainty
bodies, who are so utterly useless at
any emergency, or, as their friends
plead, "so highly endowed with
sensibility " (those who are not their
friends make unpleasant reference to
" folly " and " hysterics "), are gen
erally selfish and self-absorbed to a
degree utterly unintelligible to their
more sober sisters, who are taught
to forget self and control both mind
and body by their large-hearted
sympathy with, and comprehension
or, suffering. But the sick room is
not the only place where presence of
mind is required. Scarcely a day
passes when we do not more or less
require it. Thank goodness the
notion Uiat women should faint or go
into h'sterics for the smallest thing
is pretty well exploded ; still, even
yet the opposite lesson might be
more strongly inculcated. Toronto
The Neglected 'Oletfes.
A woman is out of her element un
less she is acquainted to a certain
extent with sciences of bake-ology,
boil-ology, stitch-ology, make-ology,
and mend-ology. There never was
a greater blunder than to substiute
good looks for good qualities. The
reason why so many men do not
make homes for themselves in these
days is because they cannot afford
it. The women are too much averse
to working, and too extravagant in
all their tastes. "We want more fru
gality, industry, and Bystem; if we
could introduce these virtues into
our higher society, we should dimin
ish the envy, jealousy, and suicides
of the single, and the wretchedness,
the bickering, and the divorces of
the married. Philadelphia Press.
Yes, and It Always Will Be.
The truth is that "personal poli
tics" has been a feature of every na
tion's politics since long before the
Athenian cast his clam-shell ballot
against Aristides because he was
tired of hearing him called "the
just" The personal morals of a
candidate have been and always will
be justly a feature of politics, be
cause the personal character of a
man is as important as his political
principles. To appoint a swindler,
a drunkard, or a professed libertine
to office is a sure means of under
mining organized society, of which
politics is only one phase, and not
tho greatest one.- Philadelphia
HowBasc Balls Are Made.
At least 10.000,000 base balls are
made and sola in this country every
year. Perhaps very few persons
know the process by which these
balls are manufactured, or the nature
of the stuffs used in constructing a
standard ball. The most expert
workmen are employed. First there
is a little hard rubber ball, and
around that the wrapper winds a
strong blue coarse yarn. When this
reaches a prescribed size it is firmly
wrapped with white Venetian yarn.
The balls are then placed in an
oven and baked until all the moisture
is taken out of them, and they are
reduced in size. This makes them
solid. After this they are coated
with cement. This causes the balls
to retain their shape, and they can
not be knocked crooked. Then
comes some fine blue yarn, and
around tho whole is placed fine white
gillingtwine. Tho balls are weighed,
for each must be of a certain weight,
and are now ready for the covers.
These latter are made of the best qual
ity of horse hide. The cover consists
of two pieces, each cut in the shape of
the figure "8." By bending one
section one way and tho other in an
opposite direction a complete cover is
obtained. That was the discovery of
a college boy. For years the balls
were covered with four pieces of
leather, but the genius of the college
chap has proved of great benefit to
the manufacturers. At one time two
covers were placed upon a ball.
That is, the ball was half made when
it was covered, and then another ball
constructed over it. But even that
did not prevent its being knocked
out of shape, They cannot knock
the hall as now made, though, be
cause the cement holds it. A little
machine owned by a Philadelphia
firm is used for winding the balls.
It is the only one in the world, wraps
two and one-half ounces of the
American Association balls in a
minute, and the rest is finished by
hand. That apparatus is a little
wonder. It does its work as neatly
as if it had brains, but is capable,
says its owners, of a good deal of
