Mis B 'riha von ILUern is a notable

woman to accomplish by training.
Devoted and successful arti-H as she i9.
her physical cultura is not deemed
second to her artistic a id a portion of
each day is given up to this need of her
nature." And while it is a need of all
natures, it becomes pre-eminently so to
those who jive it its rightful consider
ation. Not only dies the material
comfort depend upon rejtilar. moder
ate exercise, but the mental growth
and development as well. It stands to
reason that vij;utu health influences
the men-al coaditions, and that the man
i or woman who is constitutionally the
must robust will be capable of a great
er amount of intellectual lalxr. Look
at Gladstone as an illustration of the
wwer of the b dv up m the mind. Al
tliough an old man, ha still walks six
miles every ra-miing before breakfast
inc. Tlie result is clear, active brain
and a well-preserve 1 structure, such cm
a man half a century younger might
well envy him. Ha attributes his
activity to the physical culture, whieh
has never baen njlectal daring the
whole 6t his remarkable career. And
there is no do.ibt that if the men and
women of the present would emulate his
txaseple there would ba fewer pigmies

Strength should be a woman's pride
no less than a man's. Exercise alone
will derelon it, and at the same time
impart that symmetrical beauty
form whieh characterized the "god
like Greeks." It has been too long neg-
tec ted in our schools, as the pais faces
of the childieit will testify. Few chil
dri really take any beneficial exercise
white in school. The hour, or half-
hour, ior recreation in the middle of
the day is passed in studying the les
sons for the afternoon session or in
walkinc up and down the warm rooms
and balls. This is partly due to the
fact that few of the schools have yards
ufficientlv large to accommodate them
In any pleasant pastime. This is to
be regretted, as it is at this period
of a person's life that physical training
should be doing its work. The intro
duction of calisthenic exercises in the
schools several years ago was the first
sten in the rteht direction, and gave
the children a taste ior puysicai cmt-(Xi-e,
which was before unknown 'to
them. Unfoiunately, they must go

perfect type of womanhood. The new
"Woman s College," which is being
erected in our city, is to ba on thi most
advanced scale, the grounds attached
to it will be for the physical cultum ot
the fair students; a gymnasium will
not be missing from the building, and
every thing" that ean add to the menta
and bodily growth and expansion will
find its place within its walls.
Bat we need not belong to a colleg
class, or indeed, any organization, ii
order to take the exercise so necessary
to us, although it is true that we are
more likely to do it if we have others
to spur us on. Every girl who is bless
ed with moderately good health should
walk a mile or two every day, and feel
all the better for it, while in realitt
most of them loll around on their
lounges or beds the greater portion of
the day to be ready for the evening
ball or germ an. That is the reason so
few of our girls have any "go" in
them they waste all of their energies
dancing before they are conscious of
their mistake, and to are disinclined to
exert themselves by walking, or playing
tennis, or lifting dumb-bel Is. The tri
cycle is the mo-tt delightful means of
taking an airing that is open to the
belles who are too weary to foot it.
Thcse vehicles have found great favor
with the Washington girls, many o
whom can be seen any fine day speed
ing along through the bracing air w!th
sparkling eyes and glowing cheeks to
Indicate their benefit They have an
advantage over us, however, in the
smoothness of their streets, for il
would only be possible for as to rid on
the suburbs shou'.d we adopt the tri

mas woidd properlv suggest, the sub
urbs are not suflicientlv protected
from that unclassified portion of to
ciety, the tramp, to make them the
most desirablft place for exercising. So
I guess we will have to resign the com
fortable invention, and all of us who
are not happy in the possession of t
gentle saddle-horse upon which to take
a run across the country every morn
ing will have to look up some feasibl.
and inexpensive plan of recupera-atlng.
Here Is where the country girls have
the advantage over us. Their uncon
ventional life makes it possible foi
them to tvail themselves of the msn;
opportunities Nature has provided
V hafe a glorious chance the girl ha
who lives near a river. Its resource
are two-fold. In winter she can skate
to her heart's content and thus pet her
self into a fine, healthy glow. In sum
mer what more interesting and bene
ficial than to pull a stroke with some
expert college friend? Base-ball is an
other sport in which the country girl
may develop her muscle without Wnp
considered masculine; and, indeed,
there is no more exoiting and interest
ing p'astime for girls than a game witb
a "good nine. Its tmly drawback l
that it will enlargo the hands, which,
to a girl, is never a recommendation.
There was a Toimg ladies seminary
n one city where a regular nine played
every day at recess, and at times the
came would become so interesting that
the professor in charge would omit the
lessons to see the result Before, the
session ended one young lady had h;r
eye nearly put out another a broken
arm, several b.jasted sprained fingers,
to say nothing of the broken window
panes on the tide of the house facing
vardwards; but as it wan all in tin
physical culture service no one was
blamed. I will not predict such re
sults from the classes just organised.
for it is undoubtedly a good thing, and
it is to be hoped that all of our girls
who can will enroll their names at once.

How One of the Rare Delicacies of
.Eastern Markets is Obtained.
Though it had long previusly been
enjoyed by the shore towns in New
England, the introduction of the scal
lop as an edible into the New York
markets is as recent as 1858 or ,b9.
Now the annual product of the fishery,
which is restricted in area and subject
to much variation, amounts to some
thing like 75,000 gallons in all, worth
from twenty-five to thirty thousand
dollars at first cost; and New York re
ceives and dispenses about ; three
fourths. The species of scallop in question is
Pectcn Irradians, which is common in
suitable places 'all alofig our coast
Besides this there are half-a-dozen
other varieties, living at more or less
depths in the Western Atlantic, one of
which, the great Petten tenuicostaius of
the coast of Maine and the Bay of
Fundy, was formerly highly valued by
the people of that region, but now is
too scarce to appear on the tables of
even "the rich" except at rare inter
vals. Scallops are caught by hand-dredging:
from small sail boats. The dredges
are about thirty inches in width, have a.
scraper blade upon the bottom, and in
favorable weather several may be
thrown over from each boat In shoal
water an iron-framed dip net is some
times used on calm days. It is pretty
hard work, and entails exposure to very
severe weather.
The .only edible part of the scallop it
the squarish mass of muscle (the
adductor) which holds the -shells
together, and this part is skillfully cut
out by "openers," who have their
houses at the landing places where the
dredgers take their cargoes to be sold.
It is the buyer, not the dredger, who
"opens" or "eats oat"" the meat and
prepares it for market In some places
men alone are employed in this work,
at others women and girls for the most
part and they will earn from eighty
cents to $ 1.25 a day. The work is per
formed with great dexterity. The
motions of an expert opener are but
three after the scallop is in hand. The
bivalve is taken in the left hand, palm
up, with the hinges of the scallop
towards the opener's body. The knife
a simple piece of steel ground sharp,
and with one end stuck in a wooden
handle is inserted in the opening of
the shell furthest from the breast The
upper eye" is severed through by this
movement A flirt at the same moment
throws off the upper shelL The second
motion cuts the lower fastenings of the
eye to the upper shell and takes the
soft and useless rim off. The last
motion pitches the shell into one barrel
and the soft and slimy rim into another,
while the eye is thrown into
a basin of yellow stoneware
holding a gallon. They are then
poured from tlie basin into a large
colander, thoroughly washed, placed
in clean boxes and shipped to New
York and Brooklyn. As little fresh
water or ice is placed in contact with
the "meats" as possible, asit is thought
detrimental to their firmness and flavor.
As this is altogether a winter operation,
the helo of ice in transportation is not
usually needed
There is, or ought to be, no waste in
the scallop fishery. On Long Island
the refuse is taker by the fanners as
manure. The sea-faring agriculturists
have always been accustomed to re
plenish their half-exhausted lands with
the scrapings of the beach, and with
the menhaden and other seine-fish which
could be caught plentifully enough for
the purpose in the offing much to the
disgust if every stranger who found
himself to leeward of their fields. This
demand failing, there is always sale for
the refuse to' the regnlar fertilizer-factories
scattered along-the shore.
.The shells are preferred above all
otliers by the oyster-planters as
"stools" or "eulteb" to" spread upo
their deep-water planting-beds as ob
jects upon which the oyster-spawn may
"set" and grow. This wise preference
is due to the fragility of the scallop
shell, permitting it to break into
pieces under the strain of a growing
cluster of oysters, each one of which
will be benefited by the separation.
which frees it from the crowding of its
fellows and gives it room to expand by
itself into comely and valuable rotun
dity, instead of remaining a strap
shaped distorted member of a coales
cent group. All their shells, therefore,
can easily be sold by the openers to
the oystermen at from three to five
cents a bushel. Ernest IngersoU, in
