SHOULD WOMEN SMOKE?
Urt. Frank l-llo Anawera the Qneatloa
In the Negative.
The rule is no, the exception ves,
but the exception is generally a mat
ter of latitude. No pun intended.
Women in Turkey, in Peru, In varioui
tropical countries smoke, and with
them we have no quarrel. Some wom
en profess to smoke by order of their
physicians, and for them we have a
sincere pity. Other women smoke be
cause they wish to be classed as Bo
hemians, and with them we have noth
ing to do.
Tobacco may be a sedative, but It is
also a deoolorizer of skin and teeth,
and the girl who at twenty thinks its
use "cunning" or "chic," won't like Its
consequences at forty.
Doubtless there is something
naughty, plquante, provocative and
amusing to men in seeing a pretty girl
or woman aping their own mannish
ways and offering or accepting a
"light" from them, and a pretty hand
or wrist hi certainly 6hown to advan
tage in managing a cigarette, but the
dainty arm and shapely hand must be
long to a very stupid head if they can
find no other wtiy of airing themselves,
and the admiration that men give to
the woman who smokes is very apt to
degenerate into license.
Every woman should know that her
power over tmm lies in making him
feel her to be purer, better, more
moral than himself. If she descends
to his level, even in her amusements,
she soon finds that he Is her master.
A man likes to idealize the wo man he
admires, especially the woman he
wishes to marry, but if in approaching
the ideal with timid reverence he
finds her redolent of tobacco, if the
sweet mouth he longs to press is taint
ed with nicotine, if the dainty lingers
still bear the discoloration of the
cigarette 1 fear the idealist would flee,
as did Lamia's lover.in horror and dis
may. Man is attracted to vroraan by un
likeness, not likeness, and the less we
dress or talk or amuse ourselves in a
manly or rather a mannish way, or
copy bim especially in his vices, the
more earnestly will he seek to induce
us to embellish his ruder life with the
refinements and beauties of our own,
and the crabbed old writer was doubt
less correct when he said: "There is
no smoke without fire, and the smoke
of tobacco from a woman's mouth
shows the smouldering of evil fires in
her heart" Mrs. Frank Leslie, in N.
CURIOUS HORSE TRADE.
How a WIHe-Awake Strang-er Deceived a
M Will fat) Llvery-Mau.
Speaking of horse-trading reminds
me of a curious trade I was mixed up
in a couple of years ago in Michigan.
I was in the livery business and a
stranger brought in a nice-looking
horse which he offered me for a mere
song. The price seemed so low that I
fell into the trap, but soon discovered
that I owned an animal that no spur in
the State could goad into so much as a
trot 1 traded him off to a doctor who
prided himself on being able to ride
any hoine that could be saddled. X
spread the report that the animal was
a holy terror, and that no man had
ever managed to ride him. The report
reached the doctor's ears, as 1 expected
it would, and he soon made a bet that he
could ride the horse. The parties to the
wager came round, and, as the doctor
liked the looks of the brute, I soon
persuaded him to trade a very decent
driving horse for it I warned the
doctor u gain at riding the horse through
the streets, and ho said he would try
it on a quiet road. Well, he won the
bet and the next day asked me if I
would trade back if he gave me $20 to
boot. I agreed, and he told me I had
better send a wagon to his place, for
the alleged bucker could never walk
back. He paid the money over and
took away his horse. When I sent for
the animal which had caused all the
sport I found 1 had traded for a dead
horso, which I had the privilege of
burying. Tim doctor had folt so sore
about the trade the previous evening
that he had shot the alleged high-spirited
brute the minute he had succeeded
in dragging it to his own stable. Al

THE LITTLE SISTER.
Tonne Terson Who Are a Great Trial to
Marriageable Youngr Ladle.
LitUe sisters are a great trial to the
young lady with her first beau.
They have such a deadly habit of
telling just the secrets that their big
sister wouldn't have known for the
world, and telling them at just the
worst time they could possibly select
And, what is more, they seem to take
a malicious pleasure in telling them.
If Mary Jane has kept her hair
rolled up for two days, to be well
frizzed when Augustus calls, her little
sister will note the proceeding, and just
as Mary Jane has assured her admir
ing swain that her hair curls natural
ly, and that it is almost impossible to
make it stay anywhere, up Mill pop
the small sister, and tell the whole
story of the curl-papers, and In all
probability she will add the informa
tion that Mary Jane puts red ink on
her cheeks to make her "pritty."
Little sisters are always cropping
out at the wrong time. They never
want to go to bed the nights wh:n tho
big sister's beau is expected, and no
amount of coaxing and candy can con
vince them that they are sleepy.
They have eyes for every thing and
ears that would detect the slightest
whisper, and next day, at the dinner
table, the big sister will be mortified
to death aud the whole family will be
thrown into convulsions by the piping
announcement from the small sister:
"Gus Jones bit our Mary Jane last
night right into the mouth! I seen
him! And she bit him back!"
Little sisters always want to know
all tho whys and the wherefores. One
of them Is likely to climb on the knee
of an aspiring young gentleman suit
or and ask him why he doesn't have
more hairs in bis mustache; she would
like to ask him if he doesn't feel bad
because his nose is long, and it would
delight her dear little heart to impart
to him the fact that Mary Brown and
Sister Jane both said he was too long
legged for any thing but a greyhound.
Small sisters will tell the family se
crets with most delightful candor, and
while the young gentleman caller is
waiting for the young lady of the
family to give the final touches to her
toilet before coming down the small
sister will confidentially make him
acquainted with the fact that "papa
swears at mamma right along." and
that "we have old hen for dinner and
call it chicken pie," and that "Sister
Jane wants to get married awfully to
some rich young fool who will keep
her without work."
Little sisters will put molasses candy
in the chair nad see you sit down on
it without a word of warning; they
will wipe their bread and butter hands
on your pantaloons; they will cradle
their kittens in your six-dollar hat;
they will pin you and your inamorata
to tho chairs; they will put burrs in
your hair; they will sift sawdust from
the cracked bodies of their dolls down
the back of your neck; and they will
make faces at you, and yell like little
demons if you attempt to defend your
self. Therefore, we sny to you: If pos
sible, avoid going courting in families
where there tire little sisters unless
you are so deeply in love as to be per
fectly indifferent and reckless as to
consequences. N. Y. Weekly.

DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA. t
How England I Forcing a Large Trade
American schemes for the extenslo
of trade with Africa have not met witk
that degree ot success which the most
anguine had hoped for. Not many
years ago a prominent New York mer
chant became quite enthusiastic re
specting the prospects of Liberia,
sending out sugar mills, encouraging
coffee culture, and aiding in the depor
tation of American negroes, but th
to-called "republic" now exists scarce
ly in name. In like manner a steam
ship project which for a time engaged
the fostering Interest of several New
York gentlemen phllanthroplcally in
clined never took a tangible form and
passed out of mind. But a line of
sailing vessels from New York to Li
beria has been maintained, and Ameri
can exports ot manufactured cotton to
Africa through various channels form
a considerable item. Meanwhile En
gland is building up a flourishing
trade on both Bides of the continent,
on the west coast and at Zanzibar.
Trade with the colony of Lagos for the
year 1887 amounted to f l.oOO.OOO, and
it is calculated that the entire trade of
great Britain with the west coast last
year amounted to the approximate
value of $25,000,000 of imports and
$13,000,000 of exports, comparing well
with some portions of India. At Zan
zibar, up to the recent breaking out of
hostilities, the whole coast was a con
tinuous line of British Indian trading
stations, and trading increased rapidly
to $10,000,000, the greater part of this
being in the hands of British subjects.
"Unfortunately(" as we are told by
Archbishop Farrar, "this property at
tracted the greed of certain German
adventurers," who made "bogus
treaties," claimed vast tracts of coun
try, and proceeded to take possession,
despite the remonstrances of the Sul
tan. Furthermore, according to the
authority just quoted, "the whole
trade ot the coast is in the hands of
some 10.000 British subjects from In
dia, including the Ivory trade, copra,
gum opal, indla rubber, hide and grain
trades. These British Indians have
lent large sums of money to the Arab
ivory caravans. Tbey have also in
Invested their profits in mortgages on
the houses and plantations of the
Arabs, feeling quite secure under the
shadow of English justice. The Brit
ish Indians have 500,000 of floating '
capital employed at this time in the
ivory trade In the far interior, and
unless some decisive measures are un
dertaken by the English Government
this large sum must inevitably be
lost" England appears to have be
come Inextricably involved by joining
in an agreement with Germany to
maintain a blockade "to put down the
slave trade," a feat somewhat difficult
of accomplishment where every Afri
can and Arab trader is a slaveholder
either in will or deed. Clearly enough,
it would now appear the "development
of Africa," whatever this may mean,
has received a check from which there
will be tardy recovery. It is surmised,
however, that traders in Zanzibar,
while postponing indefinitely the real
ization of hopes for the commercial
subjugation of tho Interior lake re
gions accessible from this point may
give a new impetus to the Congo Free
State and to efforts to penetrate trop
ical Africa through the Soudan. The
marvelous achievements of Living
stone's successor, Henry M. Stanley,
of whom full advices have just come
to hand, invest the subject with a new
interest Iron Age.
An Economical Millionaire.
John I. Blair, of Blairstown, N. J.,
is reputed to be' worth $50,000,000, yet
such is his strong sense of merely
holding his wealth in trust for tha
benefit of his fellowtncn that ha
spends upon himself less almost than
is paid to his humblest workman.
When Mr. Blair slops at the hotel if
he intends to stay over night he usu
ally usks for a small inside room on
tho parlor floor. If it is in the winter
and loo cold to sit without a fire he
sits in llie public lobby, if hcinlends
to leave before midnight he does not
take a room ut all, but occupies the
public room down stuu's, ami if be
wishes to change his shirt lie slips into
