Though you dwollin a city, if. it be such a one as Savannah, you' need not keep -within four walls. ^Wherever you turnthere is a. park not, far off, where you can sit in tho .sun. ori shade, breathe in tho mikl humid air, and bo ns idisy as you will. TcSday I sat long beneath an almond tree .thatWas absolutely covered Hvlth brightest jjluk double potalcd blossoms. The'birds liked it; they, came iftnd. fought and scolded and -coquetted, -T^iG no'rtliern .tourists Uurrio'd by rtio alert, unrustf ul. Why bo in' snph hasfep To-morrow the BUII will shinu, the bil'ds will sing, the llowors blooni'the same us to-day. The Savannah, peopleJiave been remarkably wise in. tho matter of parks and trees. To a^ stranger it seems as / if there were trees everywhere; beautiful foliage rests the eye and mitigates the glare of city walls. 'Of course there are orange trees and magnolias. The banana is hero also, rustling its huge leaves; the olive, tho pomegranate, the arbor-vitas; tho oleander is n.bw no longer merely a shrub. As I lingered under my bowering almond, I recalled how, when I was a child, the mere recital of these names of trees and shrubs used to awaken splendid dreams of the places where they grew. Surely, I thought, that land must be a paradise where capo myrtles and pomegranates live in the. open air. But paradise recedes before the older vision, even though the eyes rest on myrtle and magnolia.—Cor. New York Post.

The fire •spread so quickly that in a few moments the whole of the vast build- was ablaze. The immense quantity of feed and other inflammable material supplied plenty of fuel for the flames to work their will upon, which they did with disastrous effect. Three 1 alarms were apedily sent out and two ambulance calls because it was at first supposed that some lives were last. This, however, so far as , known at present, is fortunately not the case. Fifteen hundred horses and 400 cars, which were in the building at the time of the breaking out of the fire, were completely burned up. The fire rapidly spread across Eleventh avenue to a row of frame tenement houses, which burned up like matches. The whole block along Fifty fourth street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, consisting also of tenement houses, was also completed gutted, and the flames ate . their way through to Fifty fifth street. 3:45 a.m.—Seventy-live dwellings, mostly frame tenements, inhabited by poor people, a soap factory and a brewery are among tho buildings burned. Tho loss will aggregate over 01,000,000. Tho firo is believed to the under control. 4 a. m.—lleports to this hour do not change the aggregate of loss already sent. It is not known that there has been any, loss of human life, but this fact will probably remain undetermined until ft search of the burned buildings-can bo made. Making Olio's Self Beautiful. With the latest notes on fashion before mo and my yen suspended, says a writer in the Brooklyn Eagle, my eyes fell upon an article which lay upon my" desk entitled, "Gossip About Prettv Girls." It gives tho modus operand! • of making one's self beautiful, and goes on to tellliow a rudely blonde of Washington fastened hor fat little hands U> the headboard on retiring so as to re- dtice the supply of blood and produce the delicate completion of an invalid friend. To allow tho mouth to bo open in sleep is simply outrageous, so to assure an avoidance, many a dainty miss woos Morpheus with her lower jaw and head closely bound with a skate strap. A narrow pillow placed vertically under the back and between tho shoulders encourages a perfect stature, so tho good old bolster is consigned to the comfort of retired belles and beaus. Disregarding the, fair,, fresh skin, classical mould, and" every- law of proportion, and in deference to an arbitrary fashion which can not but prove fatal to Taeauty and health, our wasp-waisted belles claim the necessity of slumber corsets to retain their acme of shapeliness. "A mask of moist rye flour or coating of old cream is as regularly assumed as the night robe, and the feminine head drooped pillowed minus curl papers or leads is exceptional. Hotfoot baths are a regular feature of tho. toilet, as they tend to draw the blood from hands and face." Every girl knows the value of beauty and seeks to make herself as attractive as possible, and should strive t^o pre. serve all attractive qualities; but artificial devices only conceal the ravages of time and dissipation. Still, "without true regard to the laws of health, even the powder box, rouge nnd pencil prove a shallow resource. The maid with a spirituolle cast of features aiu complexion clogs the pores of her fair, skin -with paint, while the vigorous,plump, rosy beauty tortures Tier di-- gestive apparatus with acids and chalks. Each persists in possessing attributes foreign to her constitution/ Soon Have Died.
