It is a pleasure to note that the indiscrimi­
nate use of perfumes among members of the
fair sex is rapidly decreasing, and that the
woman who employs triple extracts with
which to sprinkle herself has become the ex­
ception rather than the rule. Like everything
else, perfumes may be legitimate or not, ac­
cording to circumstances. Delicate odors,
such as violet, heliotrope or orris root, are
always permissible, just as patchouly and
musk are to be shunned. In any event, per­
fume in the shape oX sachet powder is to be
preferred to liquid extracts, if we except one

A peculiar custom with fashionable women
is to pour one or two drops of perfume into
their ears. Nobody, nowadays, ever thinks
of putting perfume on a handkerchief or
rubbing it on one’s hands. Laces, underwear,

Effects of Novel Reading.
The novel reading young girl, when thrown
into the society of a young man, is apt to be
at once overpowered with the consciousness
that he is a young man and she a young
woman; tliut be might fall in love with her
and she with him. As a result of the thought,
she will immediately assume a demeanor and
personality altogether different from that
natural to her.
Girls, talk to the young men you meet as
unaffectedly as you do to the boy friends of
your brothers, or, if you have no brothers,
and, therefore, no brothel's’ friends, as you do
to the neightar lad who, mayhap, “d«»es
chores” for your father. Do not imagine
when you meet a gentleman that your con­
versation must be remarkable or unusual to
be entertaining. The bearing of an intelli­
gent, gracious gentlewoman is one always to
be cultivated, but thi should be your every
day behavior. You should have no company

meanor simply because you are in the society

are anything but ordinary clay, and try to

character in your last novel.—Janet Dale in

HouHekfeper» and Housekeepers.
I have beard mothers declare that they
never found time to lead to their little ones;
and to tell them a story would have seemed a
frightful waste of time, and I have looked at
the ruffles on the pinafores and skirts of those
little ones and reflected that the iron ing alone,
to say nothing of the making, of those be-
ruffled garments would take more time than
the reading or telling of many stories.
I am not by any means a model house­
keeper, but my children love their home, and
although the palut is sometime« grim and
the windows dingy, my tays, who are well
grown lads, declare that they find no place so
pleasant. I do not deny that it is a cross to a
woman to look at undone work, but like most
crosses, the longer and more cheerfully you
carry it the lighter it grows. Let the making
of your home be your first work, tiie care of
your house the second, and your busband and
little ones will be the happier. When you find
that you are overworking yourself, use your
ingenuity in discovering how many things
can be left undone. If I wore a man I would
sooner put up with considerable g<xxl, honest
dirt, than with the sighs and groans of a
physically exhausted woman, for the women
who work themselves “to death,” are seldom
such heroines as not to tell of it.—Detroit

Keeping Servants.
More than any class ot women in llie

American women need servants. We have
not the robust frame nor the sturdy strength
of the British matron or the German baus-
frau. Our climate is exhausting, our lives
are varied and exciting, our frames are
slight and our nerves ure weak. We can do
much with our beads—much planning anil
thinking, much arranging and directing. To
supplement this we need tiie strong arms, tiie
tireless liacks of the jieasant women ot the
old world. If we were wise ami sensible
enough to [>ay them moderately, but fairly,
to make them dress suitably anil live plainly,
in every case where we now have but one
pair ot bands to assist in the household work,
while we makeshift to do tbo rest, we might
have two. Yes, there is no question thut if

Proper Time for Meal*.
The time to give children their breakfast
is not the moment they uro dressed; let them
have a little frolic with the "pater,” and
come to the table with warmed blood and
(•earning faces, for appetite will be helped
thereby. They should not be hurried
through their meals, nor made to eat more
than the appetite craves. Nor, if they refuse
good plain food, should they be allowed dain­
ties in its place. If the appetite for plain
food be spoiled by indiscriminate feeding, it
is hard to re-establish it.
The less they drink with their meals the
better; but copious draughts of good water
between meals will benefit. No child, or
person, should eat when overheated or
fatigued. Rest fully half an hour to recuper­
ate power to digest the food.
An hour of romping after the supper,
which should be no later than 5 o’clock, will
help to insure a quiet bleep. —Demorest'»
Women an Stenographers.
Women as a rulo do not attain to the
highest excellence in practical shorthand re­
porting, liecause they do not bring into re­
quisition sufficient judgment. As amanu­
enses, however, they give general satisfac­
tion and receive fair wages. Judging from
the great number of self constituted verbntim
/•eporters in this city, one might fancy that
they came into life like the fabled Minerva,
all armed and equipped, ready to overcome
the obstacles that beset their professional
path. Much hard, unremitting labor is re­
quired to become a thoroughly expert steno­
grapher. Power of mental concentration
and a natural aptitude in that direction are
indispensable, and without them any amount
of study and practice will be in vain.—Globe-
Retaining the Maiden Nam«.
It is the fashion for the most ultra fash­
ionable women nowadays to retain their
maiden for their ‘‘middle name.” Some of
these ladies have been astonished to hear that
i he innovation was first started and became
widely used by the suffrage women of this
country, who thought it best to retain even
this slight hold upon their identity. The
»hocked and surprised fashionables are of the
class that are unconsciously using and utiliz­
ing pinny of the changes that have been
Jowly brought about by their indefatigable
sisters” of stronger views.—Hartford Times.

The beauty of American women often
puzzles foreigners, who cannot account for it.
One ingenious lady of foreign birth has pro­

long in one position, so that any defect is not
likely to become fixed.
