IN WOMAN'S BEHALF A GIRL OF THE PERIOD. I met yesterday—I would yon lyid seen her, ;' That woixtTOi i» voice, that May-quoec fle '•'•--. meaner!— A wonderful girl; In her looks; my Ideal; And yet from her curls to her boots shewn real. J know a queen rose from « daffy-down-dilly; : I know the good points of an unbroken Oily; I saw whut she'd make, if once I had tame' her To smile when I praised her, and weep when blamed her. 3 mid: "Lovely maid, do you know that you mission , On earth is to soothe man's uneasy condition To pour OB the waves of his spirit's commotion - Your patience, forbearnnce and general devo- tiony, "For man Is so wild, so restless and raging, - His case seems to call for incessant assuaging And so a kind Providence m;ikes your vocation • Consist out and out in amelioration, • _ "Moreover, the man Is by nature despotic; ; Resistance exclies him to passions chuotlc. As you are all saints, while we are but human, Obedlenoe, etc.. devolves on the woman. ' "How sweet, when our passions enrajre or be tray us, To keep one pure creature on hand to allay us found out by a world which objects to receiv ing us, To know there is one «till obliged to believe in us! ^ "O maiden!" 1 cried, "don't you feel it your duty Toyield yourself up m the May of your beauty. Fulfilling your mission, dear feminine creature, By merging yourself In my mascuhne nature" I looked inner face: not a blush <*»s suffusing The cheek thai seemed dimpled by something amusing. Then flashed her h ue eyes, and if you'll believe it, The shock was so great I could scarcely receive it. *Vonng man," she replied, "I deplore most sincerely The state or Ill-health you exhibit so dearly. I would you were healed; but here my revolt is— You may be a blister, but I'm not a poultice. . "My life is so large and its duties so various • I haven't the time to assume the vicarious.

"With all due respect to the fair sub- is^: 0 jects who are now passing through the R?i; press as I'epresentative beauties of 1& America, I, as a judge of female loyeli- jpxness, frankly say: "They are not types of American beauty." First, the beauty ^of any woman becomes lost when a ^fi,brief sketch of the same tells all about high standing, her social attfain- I*ments, her live blood, her wealth and fe 1 / ancestry. Do we, as Americans, re||: Tquire peculiar strains cf blood to ele- IIS vate our beauties to certain high, stan- f?i dards? Who is it that passes by the s*' ; rosy-cheeked schoolgirl, sweet as a £>pink, fragrant as a spice blossom, and as the early blush of dawn, for a &*'• "bedecked, .bediamonded and beflattered ||;,<iueen,of society, who has lost all the If" freshness-of beautiful youth in social Hffc. lionizing? -Are we to seek for the pret- "roses in hot-houses? ' Must'we I all homage and fawn with subjec- |<£ :; tion to our forced flowers of beauty, so, when the sweet springs by wood|||:land ways glow with tender violets? if 1 ; "When the rude "bush and bramble bring II forth'rarer,-fairer buds than ever yet J|.were forced under the feverish heat of ^'•fashion'ii sun-houses? They spring ^gfrom families that make history in civil jp and politic life. They have been pro- as professional beauties—not feall, but most of them—by critics of two feiemispheres. They are •beauties—but ^ "beauties alone to the tivo social worlds SSjibat know, own, claim and are proud ef Sthem. But they are as far -from the beauty of the American, type of ftiair womanhood, as is the forced grape i sun-kissed and zephyr-blown that hangs in the free air of [||iieaven. 1|:V ."Will the writer who glanced, merely |£glanced, at native beauty, come and "£ look at native beauty? I'll assure you £no. The modest star-eye that bends by jjthe rippling stream, has but small at- to the professional glancer at IK American beauty, when the hot glow of " social plant, with all its rich and Sf/"brilliant glare is in his eyes. Is there Iffi-any call or necessity for the pure native ,5?beauty to crawl -back into the dusty, .feinusty and fusty archives of old days for gl^blood strains to sustain her present '"fiparamonnt ascendancy? Does the man 'Swho bows in servile homage before the yjplittering shrine of a professional £beanty,;so. heralded and advertised in •jfiitypes black and white, ever think for a ilinoment that all charm would be lost Severe the favored one to don rustic, Igowns and drive lowing kine through |fgreen pastures and blackberry bramble? SDoes the suitor who wooes the hand and f ieues the heart of one of the pronounced •ftypes of native beauty emblazoned in fthe pages of a magazine and scattered libroadcast over the land, stop to realize Stow little charm there would be in that jUvelvet tone of voice if it.were.crooning queer old song over the dasher of a -plain old-fashioned crock churn? I wot fnot : Frankly, what does beauty among women consist of? As Ifrankly" I -affirm that it do&tn' t consist tof;Notoriety in the plaans of, social ,^ife. : ; -A perfect blonde, a ravish-. jSng and exctuisite brunette, a dancing, lrninn:iTiw: chatterinf,-^' or world-wise creWire in e'Osvns, laces, diamonds and ;i king line of blue-blooded stocl and u lonylim* of present affluence inn' a perfect typu of Amej'iran beauty Such an one may be a model of perfection in the eyes of the few, but th eyes of the few are meager comparei to the eyes of the many. (Jo over th entire list of the galaxy of portraiturei types of native beauty u,ad you will no find one that the world has not heard o before. Go over the entire list from first to lii-st and you will not find om whose family associates are not pain fully impressed upon the reader's fancy to line/,' the object's right or reason for a .place in this-niche of fame. Isn't a beautiful girl, born and raised in com mon Danube, Herkimer county, N. Y. an beautiful as the queen of New Or leans? Oh, no! he? family isn't si dintfngiif,' Up in the Adirondack moun tains blooms and blossoms the sweetes woman in all the world, but she doesn' go into the high steps of society, she isn't known, henco this mountain pink is passed by while spa,ce ii given to the belle of l\fcm phis. It isn't fashion to nam< rural beauty when one has in mind i city's queen. All rural beauty does no- consist of rod arms, freckled faces anc stout ankles. You will find, in quie' farm homes, types of beauty that would cast into shade, complete, obscure, the hot-house plants of the city's social life And our rural types, bound to fade in artificial stm and heat, would be her aided as types of native beauty, when no kind few would dare call attention to their worth in their native surround ings. I am no stickler for sects or sec tions. Beauty can be found among the crowded tenements of lower New York that will vie in each and every distinction with that of Fifth avenue. Beauty can be found in the old hills of I\e Hampshire that can put to flight the be- diamonded belle of Chicago. Memphis, famous for its many queens of beauty, would hide its head were tJi-e really beautiful women from its rural parts called forth. You will never print the faces of American t}'pes of native beauty until the owners of these same faces find fame in the social world, learn half a dozen different tongues, and make two lands separated by a wide expanse of water, fall down and worship them. To be the feted queen of the few is not to be the qiteen of the many. There are hundreds, thousands of admirers who admire the rural beauty where but a privileged score may scarce approach the precincts of the social beauty. Then, in conclusion, how are we to know who are to truly and really represent to the world our native types of female beauty? Alas! it is not for us to know! If we admire beauty we do not want to see it in cold black and white. If we admire social queens, we do. Such are common property and expect and desire world-wide fame; but when one sees a galaxy of faces noted as types of American beauty, and each and every one is a. social queen, then are we apt to hide our head and say, as I do now—to what traits of fancy are our social minds leaning? In finis, I can match against every printed face of every social queen a dozen fairer, more lovely, but less rich, less social women, who can discount, in all, these so-called native types of beauty,—H. S, Keller, in Arkansaw Traveler. another woman —the one who's used Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. She's ~ a stronger and a happier woman— and a healthy one. The aches, pains,' and weaknesses, that made life'miserable are gone—the functional disturbances or irregularitieH that caused them have been cured. Face and figure show the change, too: • Health has restored the charms that rightfully belong to her.' For all the weaknesses and ailments peculiar to womanhood, " Favorite Prescription " is a positive remedy. 5To other medicine for women is guaranteed, as this is, to give satisfaction in every case, or the, money is refunded. It's proprietors are willing to take the risk. What it has done, warrants them in guaranteeing what it will do. It's the cheapest medicine you can buy, because it's guaranteed to give satisfaction, or your money is returned. You only pay for the good you get. . Can you ask more ? That's the peculiar plan all Dr. Pierce's medicines are sold on. THE tlsGLISH PEERAGE. How the Various Titled Personages Ar« Addressed. The American young women who nave married into the English peerage, lave done so in blissful unconsciousness of the difficulties involved in mastering ;he mere nomenclature pertaining to .heir new position. If they - could foresee the labor required to escape fundamental blunders in the modes of addressing members of the English nobil- ,ty they might look twice before they .eaped. So innumerable and irrational are the anomalies' in the forms of speech formed in conversation and correspondence that only those accustomed iothemirom childhood can avoid per- >lexity and confusion. A few examples vill suffice to illustrate the intricacies if social terminology in England. Thus wic prince '. 01 TV-ales is acldresned a "Your royal highness;" but this phras is only used in the third person, as ' 'Does your royal highness believe?" I you wish to address -him directly in th vocative, you must say "Sir." He is ctiriously enough, the only person i: the kingdom to whom the word "Sir, without any qualifying term, can b employed as an apostrophe. In speak ing'to a baronet—Sir John Brown—yo must say ''Sir John," and never under any circumstances, addres him as ''Sir Brown.' 1 It is very com mon, by the way, in America, to imagin that a baronet is a nobleman and to speak of him as a lord. Of course he is neither, being simply a commoner but the mistake is natural, seeing- tha his wife is always spoken of as "Ladj Brown." If, however, a baronet shoulc marry the daughter of a duke, a mar quis or an earl, she would insert he Christian name in her title and be calle< "Lady Mary Brown." If a baronet' wife, on the other hand, were tin daughter of a viscount or a baron, shi would be the "Honorable Lady Brown/ It is a singular fact that while all tin daughters of an earl have the title "Lady" before their Christian name an> surname, as "Lady Constance Herbert, and are formally styled in addition "Right Honorable," yet an earl's young er sons are not called "Lord," and ar only entitled to be styled "Honorable.' Another inconsistency is the follow ing: The eldest son of a duke, a roar quis or an earl takes by courtesy hi. father's second title, but even if a vis count have a second title his eldest son does not take it. In England the eldes sons of viscounts and barons arc simply like their younger brothers, the Honor able So-and-So, as the Hon. J ohn Brown In Scotland there is still a more puzzling custom, the eldest son of a baron being called the "Master of So-and-So/' Thus the son of Baron Eavenswood woulc be the Master of Eavenswood, Again in speaking to a duke formally he should be addressed as "Your Grace,"but the familiar form is "Duke.' On the other hand, a marquis is never addressed, even informally, as 'SVI quis," but as "My Lord" or "Your Lordship." In speaking to a bishop formally you say "My Lord" or "Your Lordship," but informally you may saj simply "Bishop." It is also a rule in the case ol> dukes, marquises and earls, that when the title is taken from th< name of a place the word "of" precede: the name of the place in the title's ful designation, as the "Duke of Manchas ter." Where, on the contrary, the title is taken from the family name, thi word "of" is omitted, as the "Marquis Townsend," the "Earl Stanhope.' Strangely enough, the word "of"'never occurs in the titles of viscounts anc barons, even though the title may be taken from the name of a place. To the above rule there are a few exceptions in the case of earls. Thus we must say "Earl Granville," though the title is taken from the name of a place and again we must speak of the "Eai< of Ashburnham," though his family name is Ashburnham. ' Such incongruities confront us at every turn, and the American who deems it worth, while to matter the intricacies of English conventional nomenclature will'"find no end, in wandering mazes lost."—N. Y. Ledger. The Western Settlers' < lioiscn Specific With every advance of emigration into the far West, a new demand is created for Hostetter's i Stomach Bit ters. J?ew peopled regions are frequently less salubrious than oidei settled localities, on account of the miasma which rises from recently cleared land, particularly along- the banks of rivers that are subject to freshets. The agricultural or mining emigrant soon learns, when he does not already know, that the Bitters afford the only sure 'protection against malaria, and those disorders of the stomach, liver and bowels, to which climatic changes, exposure, and unaccustomed or unhealthy water or diet subject him. Consequently, he places an estimate upon this great household pecific and preventive commensurate with its intrinsic merits, and is careful to keep on hand a restorative and promoter of health so implicitly to be relied upon in time of need. to25 DB.

Frank Baker, Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County, says: "In some respects it is a vast improvement over the English Brilannica. The English edition contains no biographies of eminent Americans or Englishmen now living-, and tbe biographies of those who are dead are lees complete. These deficiencies are remedied in the Americanized edition, making il an invaluable compend of facts absolutely essential to historical information. I consider it a most valuable book in any way you look at it. For the man who \vantsja book of reference for use I consider it invaluable. It is also a marvel of cheapness and an indispensable auxilary to every library." Lyman J. Gage, President World's Columbian Exposition And vice president of the First National-. Bank, say: "The movement inaugurated to suprdy the people with the Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica is a marked indication of an advance in the intellectual taste of the community. nUnder^the easy conditions of purchase of the work it ought.to be in every'library, however humble." From the Chicago Herald: • 'The Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica is a magnificent and valuable possession for every household. It presents for the first time a complete reference library at a price and on terms within reach of every, family." From Colonel G-eo. Davis, Director General of the World's Fair: ••The work is a most praiseworthy undertaking. Any legitimate .method by which^the people are presented an opportunity for the purchase at a reasonable cost of works of standard literature or works of importance;., as the means of acquiring a practical and substantial education deserves the fullest possible recognition. The Americanized Encyclopsedia Britannica appears to have met the requirements in all respects. I commend the . work with pleasure." E. St. John, General Manager of the Rock Island Rail- Road System, Expresses his conclusions in the following direct and emphatic language: ' 'The remarkable enterprise in offering to the public on terms , so inviting a, work of such merit as the"Americanized Encyclopaedia Britannica can but result in benefit to every person securing it. The Encyclopsedia needs .no commendation. Every page speaks for itself and attests its value." From the St. Louis Republic: "The Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica is not the Encyclopaedia Britannica in its old form, but the Encyclopaedia Britannica Americanized and so Americanized to make it a thousand-fold more valuable to American Readers than the English edition." Colonel Sexton, Postmaster of Chicago, says: "I think it is a valuable addition to the publications of the year.
