is that they will not work for other poo

who is used to the razor can know what

course, and he will know just what

seem to become wauainted with the

them, and work well for him; when, if a

rather poor for some time in fact, until

JEFFERSON ON SNORING.
tttIdenU of an Old-Time Mage Journey
Acroan the AUfichaiiieg.
A short way from town there was a
long hill up which the horsos toiled, so
this gave the inmates of the eoach time
to settle themselves down for a quiet
nap. One snore after another announced
the accomplishment of this feat, and in
a few minutes at least six out of the
nine passengers were oblivious of their
miserable condition. I never before had
si) fine an opportunity t study the
philosophy of snoring. A large, fat man
opposite me had a short, angry snore;
A one time he snored so loudly that he
wake himself up, and he had the impu
dence to glaro about at the company as
though he hoped that they would not
make that noise ag.iin. The old lady
who was crushing me up in tie corner
snored deeply and contentedly. Some
one off in a dark corner, whom I could
not see, had a genial way of joining in,
as though he snored merely to oblige
the passengers; but the grand, original
muscian of the party sat opposite me.
I never heard any thing approaching
him, either for quality or for compass.
It was a back-action snore that began in
a bold agitato movement, suddenly
brought r.p with a jerk and terminated
in a low whistle. As the coach steadily
moved up the hill the band was in full
play. The summit gained, there wa3 a
sharp craok of the whip, the horses
started, and as every body was jerked
violently backward, the snoring gave
place to oaths and pshaws and jolting
about. As soon, however, as we got
used to this sensation, the chorus began
again; and as I was quite overcome and
tired, I joined in until the coach came
to a full stop at the stable where the
horses were to he chanced. The sun
now rose and came in at all sorts of

"THE SOCIAL CHAPERONE.
A Syntem of Espionage That In a Dead
Giveaway to Our Olrlx.
fs it not rather nonsensical that a
young lady in Washington society must
have a permanent appendage Dy way oi
an ehlerlv woman to accompany her on
nor walks, drives and rides, and share
with her all the calls and attentions of
her centlemen friends! This late inno
vation of the chaperone is the aping of
social condition wholly different from
our . own. English society is based ort
heredity and privileges of birth. En
glish aristocratic government divides
the people Into classes. it creates
castes, which we are supposed to de
spise. English social life from the cradle-
to the grave is one unceasing effort to
maintain all the rank one is born with
and prevent those of lower caste from
crawling up a step higher. 1 his creates
Enerlish exclusiveness, which American
shoddyism loves to imitate. This En
glish idea of exclusiveness is the secret
of home training for all who can afford
it. It explains the tutor and governess
idea, the herding, as it were, of the
famiiv under the ancestral tree. In
consequence the English girl grows up
with an unusual idea of the importance
of her family. She is well instructed in
hooks and deportment, vet lacking the ;
confidence, ease and grace of a woman
who has been taught to lean upon ner
own strength. She is innocent, awk
ward and ignorant, shy, gullible ana ex
tremely susceptible. She needs a chap
erone or guardian.
With our public school system and
mixed colleges, backed up by good re
publican ideas oi equality, politically
iallv. our bovB Lnd irirls come up
on a more natural idea of companion
ship. They are from infancy snarers
and partakers in study and pleasure.
Both boys and girls are better for prop
erly regulated and guarded association.
Boys are softened, made more gallant
and less selfish; girls are less suscept
ible, more graceful and more womanly.
A boy with a good sister, a girl with a
good brother, are not only better, but
more prudent and polished members of
Nine out of every ten American girls
now affecting a chaperone come up to
the debutante age with a crowd of play
fellows and school-boy friends. If she
is a Western girl wo will count the ten.
She played with dolh and at dolls with
them, jumped the ropo, played tag and
blind-man's hulf on the school play
ground. She had her boy sweethearts,
too, and she will never find a more
callant kniirht than the boy who adored
her chiefly by glances, and caramels t;
the extent of his income. She competed
with hoys for school standing, and ex
pended her sympathy on them when she
heat them. All along the lino the
American girl is trusted till fortune
launches her into ultra-fashionable so
ciety, when the bars are put up and her
gentlemen friends must yield to bore
doom, espionage, and a double expense
for the pleasure of her society.
A chaperone in society here means
one of three things that the girl is
badly trained or irredeemably silly;
that the men who visit her are ill-bred
or wholly vicious, or that she is a victim
to a foolish and unreasonable affecta
tion. The chaperone prevails in France.
Does that country show a higher level
of morality? Does the espionage system
any where increase feminine self-re
spect? Does it elevate or degrade." Does
it make women strong or weak? Does it
prevent or encourage intrigue? Are
women stronger, mentally or morally,
when marriage cuts the chain?
The typical American girl is not a
wood violet. Sho dances, plays tennis
and swings on a horizontal bar. Sho
studies philosophy and political econo
my, reads Browning, Spencer and In
gersoll; has decided views of church,
stato and marriage. She discusses suf
frare aud cherishes philanthropic
schemes; she has literary, musical and
artistic aspirations. The American girl
is, or should be, a thinking, self-reliant
woman, to whom a hawk-eyed
chaperone is as unnecessary as the fifth
wheel to a wagon. The chaperone In
American society is an affectation not
creditable to our common sense or a
wholesome civilization. Washington.
Owing to continued emigration and to
the persistent efforts of philanthropists,
pauperism in Great Britain is diminish
ing at last. This is hopeful. It showa
than an impression can be made on the
poverty and crime of a nation. Until
recently one person in every thirty-three
in Great Britain was a pauper, Now the
tide has really turned tht other way at
