Trego Webb In Iondou Spectator. EXERCISE FOFI GRACE. Wily Women Blso from » Chair Very Much ns the flail of Their Child Docs, j litis anybody told you yet, little woman, j that you don't know how to rise from a chair? Weil, you don't. The act, as you perform it., suggests the movements of tha iin.t, iueetl, jointed wooden creature you loved best when a child, l )eo«ttRe she was the. unguinliest of all jour children, and everybody else laughed nt her and <U. you for chcrisliin.^ her mont. Bu 'v yen did, and yon made her the very finest gowns and most astounding lurtmns you could devise, and kept, her in your arms mostof tho day ttud put her olo ^e by your pillow *.vhen you went to bed nt night, and perhaps that In partly the reason why you sit down and rise up with some suggestion of her ancient grace. But you should have learned hotter things, little woman, all these days that you have been hearing so much about physical perfection, and the dress reforms, and the body reforms, and the Deism tiau graces, and all the rest. And you should have learned that the reason you ri™ like your wooden doll is because your joints are in exactly the same Inflexible and unyielding state that hers were. Tho secret of grace of body is suppleness of joiut. It really takes all the poetry out of the matter, you se.e, to discover that the elegant sinuosity of movement that marks the "vera deft" is altogether a question of mechanics, and depends upon the ease of motion in the various hinges that connect tho diSerent members of the human frame.. But It Is, and so tho thing for you to do is to get these hinges into easy working order as soon and as completely as possible. Begin your improving exercises, not by practicing various graceful poses before a mirror, as women who haven't got ''old of the seerqt of the thing are wout to do, but begin with suppliug each separate joint In your body in this way. Turn the fingers round and round on the axis of tho hand; turn the hand round on the axis of the wrist. Turn tho forearm on the elbow and the whole arm on the shoulder. Then purn tho head on the neck—slowly and as far round as you cnn. You will be surprised to see how easily after a few days' practice your face will come to be where your back hnir was a moment before. Now try turning the trunk on the waist line, the legs on the hips, tho lower half of the leg on tho knee and the foot, on the IvoVle, A steady, constant practice of this one turning exercise every day for one month until every joint is as free and supple ns it can possibly be made will give a grace nnd freedom of motion that seems «ell nigh incredible to one who has never tried it. The most important of these movements are those that turn tho body on tho waist, the head on the neck, and the legs on tho hips. Just notice tho next graceful woman you meet and see for yourself how much her grace of. movement depends on toe free and supple action of the trunk nnd tho waist and tho hips.—New York Evening Sun. Women YFho Live by Typewriting. A manufacturer of one of the standard typewriters on the market says thnt thero ate 75,000 women who make n living in this country by thrumming tho keys of writing machines. "We are not able to give you absolutely .accurate information," he said, "as to tho number of women who make it living by the typewriter, but we are probably in a bettor position to estimate the approximate number, as wo know more nearly than nny one elbo how many machines of all makes aro i.i use, and the proportion of malo and female operators. We think it not far out of leu way to say that there are about 75,000 women whose support Is derived from tho use of writing machines, and 25,000 mon of whom the same may bo said. Theso figures do not. include the men who use the typewriter themselves lu their own business or profession, but merely those, who nso the muuhine as employes of other people." Another manufacturer says that from 20,000 to 80,000 women are usiug the machines which ho is making.—New York Bun. Tho Disposition of the Ring. The disposition of that sentimental pledge, the engagement ring, hot) at last been carried before the French courts, and now we know to whom when its signiti- cunce is broken the tokeu shall revert. In the Ninies court iu France a recent divorce case came up in which the wife claimed as hers certain articles of jewelry presented to her before their marriage. Prominent among these was the engagement ring. Tho judges decided that not only is a woman entitled before the law to all those articles of value which ft lover has seen lit to present to her before marriage, but that the "ring offered for the purpose of recalling the engagement of two persons constitutes the moat personal and most Irrevocable of all souvenirs given in view of marriage," This is ns It should bo.—Sau Francisco Argonaut. Bow a Brilliant Woman Writes. Mrs. Mary B. Bryan, who draws the biggest salary of any woman editor in tho United States, has written a eomedlettu in one act entitled "His Society Play." It is the experience of a New York playwright with the scenes in tho top story of a lodging house. This quaint, nervous little woman is • Georgia product, unu%ualiy gifted, with us many whims as a child, aud a dlsposltwii quite as sunny. She Is a tremendous worker, writes day and night, most of the time sitting on tbo floor Turk fashion,with her copy paper ou a. lapboanl. and the whole place Uttered with pencil chips.—Exchange. How to Lifoe a Corset. "If lace you must," said a handsome and smart actress to me, "use three sets of locus in your corsets, one starting at tho top and ending two or three holes above the waist line of the corsets, to tie there; the secoud starting at the lower edge of the corsets, extending up t_ two or three boles below the waist line of the corsets, to tie there; the third lacing the spaco left between aud tying just at the waist iine. Then reducing the size of your waist—that is, pnlllng the middle cord—isn't going to drag you Into » straight line abovo and below the waist. Also you will wear your corsets, even though tight, with more comfort- "There is a jilnce—isn't there, dear doe- tors?—just, about at the waist line, that I think God must have left, knowing that we would lace, kill or no kill, where pressure can come without tying our necessary nnd indispensable viscera Into hard knots. By tho suggested arrangement of cords we can reduce the size of the waist with less violsnt offense to heart aud lungs and also without sacrificing entirely harmony of outline. Just make beauty and hygleno clasp hands practically — every woman knows what I mean by practically—and we will rejoice more than the doctors. "Oh! Eight he.'e I might, as well suggest, nlastio cord i'or the upper and lower strings; and even for the one at the waist if you dare. You will thereby gain a suppleness lu movement and pose which is worth striving for, but which we cannot ail of us take oif our obtain, as does the serpentine Sarah. Elastic corset lacings, as I suggest, will nt least prevent our looking as if we woro padlocked into a board fence when we recline in an easy chair- say like Langtry with a cigarette in one of her 'As in a looking Glass' pictures,"— Cincinnati Enquirer. Mother* Should ltnmember. T/hat the abdominal cavity is packed with its organs; that the liver alone extends two-thirds across it, and thnt tight lacing deeply furrows the liver, sometimes cutting it tn two, a thin membrane alone connecting the parts; thatthefull stomach Is thus often pushed up against a weakened heart, and the pclvlo organs are so crowded n« tn r »-3duce serious and permanent ill effects. That the lack of vitality in many children, by which they are rendered peculiarly susceptible to infectious diseases, is due to a deficiency of pure air in their sleeping rooms. That a child's brain is not in r. condition for study before its seventh year, aud that when n child is precocious there Is special reason for holding it back if it is to be saved from brain disease, future dullness, or possible imbecility. That no growing child should fail to have at least nine or ten hours' sleep iu a well ventilated room, and that no sleep is perfect with a light in the room. That children under 17 should not bo allowed the excitements of evening parties. That children, from the earliest practicable age, should bo trained to habits of i self control in nil directions, i That every mother ought to make It a I prime object to secure and maintain the i fullest confidence of her children nnd her : normal Influence over them.—Youth'B Companion.

Despite the intellectual and physical strength of man tho womau endures longer '*nd bears pain to which the strong man succumbs. Physicians tell us that rymoi;lc diseases are m-„,u fjttai to utiles, «nd the records of our health departments prove that more malo cbi.dren die than female. Tho proportion ikying suddenly is nbout 100 women to V00 .ueu. Ira our large tiities pulmonary consumption takes off many women, while t;,e diseases fatal to the males aro apoplev'f, intemperance, affection of the heart or liver, scrofula, gout, paralysis and hydrocephalus. Again thero is an excess of more than 6 per cent, of females in the various populations, though there are from 3 to 6 per cent, more males born than females. Tn Connecticut many women have lived to be over 100 years old, while scores at the age of 90 are found in every town in the state. Jn the state of New York the average life of a womau appears to be 48 years. In Maine the males outlive the Umnien.— Herald of Health. When Bnby Is Young;. Baby was troubled with soreness and discharge from the navel, aud nothing seemed to do any good till I applied a raisin, split and the seeds removed, keeping it firmly in place by two narrow strips of court plaster crossing each other. I changed the raisin twice in twenty-four hours; hi a week the navel was entirely healed. Put vnjellue on baby's nose and chest when she has a cold, aud it will also pro- vent all chafing and soreness under the arms, iu the groin and neck aud behind the ears. I found it better than any powder, starch, flour or castor oil. Baby is one of those who never cry, and I lay it all to the fact that she has never had a pinned band on her except the week thnt the nuvel was healing; all skirts button ou waists wh(ch are loose and tie with tapes. Bands are crocheted of white Saxony and button In front; flannel skirts button ail the way down the front; only one safety pin in the diaper and no pricked and crying baby.—Mrs. Ada DezotelL Blramcrson (after six months' tour of Europe, returns and visits the club)—By Jove, how natural everything looks!

After boiling ten minutes the water should be po.iral into a wooden or stone jar, covered with a cloth nnd left nn hour to cool, when it may be put into the filter. For n filter a new, clean flower pot of unglazed ciay,' filled monthly, or rather changed for one freshly charged. Is lietler than moat, of the patents iu the market. First cut a disk of cotton flannel to fit th» bottom of th£ pot inside, pub on this A layer of clean, white sand an Inch thick, then three inches of charcoal In very coarse powder, three Inches of sand above this, aud clean, washed gravel over all, and you have as good a filter for a dollar as you can buy for ten, ns far HS working goes. The water must run through this twelve hours before the charcoal dust washes out so that the fluid runs clear. The pot should fit into the top of a long stone jar with faucet nttnehod and toe ice he hung in it, tied in a piece of cotton flannel for a primitive mode of keeping the iceworms out and making the ice last, longer. The only trouble with water so prepared is that it tastes flat from want of air, which Dr. Currier proposes to supply by a clean bellows kept for the purpose, but It Is more conveniently dona by pouring water from one pitcher to another several times as foaming drinks are mixed. Ov one of the patent egg and cake (water* could be used in the water for a few minutes, and the most discriminating palaT? could hardly tail to approve water so re- flued.—SWrlcj Daro iu New York HettdO. The Diffusion uf Ll |[ht. A bit of clever artifice to which women may resort with n clear conscience consist* iu distributing light so that coloring aud features may be developed instead of flattened. In more thou half the houses, ou visits both day and night, the light is in- art 1st ical I y admitted from above. Go into any ballroom where floods of Illumination are dispersed from a great height, and the freshest debutante is seen at a disadvantage. Her rosiness is fairly devoured by tho greedy glare, and not until one drawe her into the dimly lit conservatory ore all the delicate tints restored. The secret of preserving one's bloom after nightfall lies in using wax or even paraffins candles as much as possible, and so distributing their soft glow that it will all shine from about a level with the face. "How exceedingly pretty the girls always look at your house,'* remarked a casual observer, never guessicg that one-half the credit was due their hostess, who enhanced instead of ruthlessly dissiputing her guests' loveliness by the manipulation of illumination.—Illustrated American. A -'r.;;li..i- Won.&ii S U I YCVUSU Mme. Ribnrt, the ex-grisett», who waa the first European to practice medicine la the Turkish harems, was as skillful oa most of her contemporaries. The woman's career is more romantic than most fiction. Her lover in Paris was a medical student; alio devoured his text books with more avidity than be did her novels.
