It is well for all classes that thim spotless robs idea has gone out, for children are cer lately put Me the angels in one thing at least thy wilt soli their clothes.

Shirt are even a little ohorter than they have been, though there is much margin left in this matter for the Woke of individual opinion. It is generally tuaderotood, however, that for children under Seven the Skirts Mundt' barely cover the knees. Short-sleeved and low-necked dreeses are neareely ever seen now, though there are a very few French patterns of this kind to be invariably worn over white gamy.. The idea which tins So largely ;prevailed in ladies' dresses of baying tbe various piecesas fatigue, overakirt and underskirtmerely simulated, being all in reality united in one piece which as titian given the IMMO "Princeme." although that name originally signified a much plainer robe, haa also keen carried out in children's costumes. Thus many of tint apparent little kilted skirts are merely a continuation of the upper garment; and many little drawee which corniest spoprently of a plain tiabrielle with a sort of sack oferdress have the letter merely einiulated by trimming. - Everyday Dresses. "rhlre are comparatively few styles which consist of More than one piece, and these are mostly for common wear, with the plain tittle kilted skirt and the belted blouse-waist with yoke. This most convenient and simple and very pretty suit is snarls up this season in soft wool debeiges, in erge', bunting, or in the various wash goodm, among which latter the English cheviots with their delivate stripes are the most stylish. Another Very popular and becoming common dress for girls tit from six to ten years is of plain sack shape, with a short kilt at the bottom. the junction being hidden by a overt; line checks are very pretty goods for this milt, with the scarf and simulated vest of solid color. A simple little suit for a girl of from six to twelve may be made of checked goods, and consimts of a plain skirt, the back laid in two broad box-plaits, and edged .with a couple of rows of mohair id alpaca braid in contrasting color, the outer braid being &dished by a row of tiny loops of the sante; the &moque is cut-away, making points at the sides. eatique, cults. pockets and collar are all trininied with the pretty arrangement of braid. A lovely little dress of the style which simulates on overgarment is made of ecru noveltN-cloth of silk and wool; the fronts of the overgarment do not meet, leaving the plain little Gabrielle visible, billet:mil its, entire length and trimmed with a band of brown silk down the fronts and around the bottom; in the back it is arranged la box-plaits. The fronts of the apparent outolde dress are Onimhed in a very novel and beautiful manner. large button-holes being bound with milk, and a short loop aud end of brown ribbon fall! tug from each hole. The cults are similarly trininied and the back side forms are also finished So, while the front side forms end in square pockets of knife-plaited Not rn silk. Tne back is laid in side plaits from the neck, each being piped with the silk and stitched down; three tabs tall over the box-plaits of the skirt. A style destined to be very popular for misses of from twelve to !sixteen, this summer, is called the Fishwife," from the fact that the round overskirt Is turned up upon itself for a quarter of a yard. The pattern shown its a wash-dress of cheviot cloth, with hair lines of pink running through it. to 'match which the dress is piped with pink, and a looped bow. of pink ribbon confines the upturned I; points of the overskirt behind. A gathered rut- Or three box-plaitm may trim that skirt. The waist is a long plaited blouse, the side-forms end-lug in round gathered pockets. More Elaborate Costumes tor the street are milts, also of one piece, in which , the Plain underdress is of one kind of goods and the simulated overgarment of a heavier one; it is wet away top anti bottom, being fastened across by frogs of silit cord, which also serve as trimming on the cuffs and on the side-forms which fall in Sleep ;totem. At, the back the overgarment is also open, showing the side-plaits of the dress beneath. An elaborate affair for a younger child, also in one piece, simulates three; the long overgarment of eaehmere, serge or bouretto is edged with an sibroltierY of tioutache braid, surmounted by tracing braid in contrasting colors. This has very marrow fronts, opening to show a simulated sleeveless moque of tome other materialgarnet velvet to the pattern ahownabout an eighth of a yard of which shows. The under dress of all is laid in melt pinits behind. which show between the fantail tabs of that above. A few more elaborate styles may also be in-tamed from among the many elegant affairs which are invented for the little ones by those tmottieles who give their thoughts awl talents et-elusively in this direction. Anti it may be mentioned in passing that no more esquisite itiOPP route from Oarts than are brought to light right bore in Our own city, some of the latter styles be- lay even preferable. For a little girl there is shown a lovely thing in bourette cloth of blue and ecru. The plait Ihreton front is of raw silk; bars edged with double pipings. and on the lower side with a tiny blue silk knife-plaiting, ernes diagonally, being tooloned on the right by bows of blue and ecru rib-butts, end buttoned on the left.

There gift mend long-looped bows ot the two ribbons here. also oneat tbe back of the neck. The side tormsare short, each cut in two little points and taliingover three follies, two being of blue and - one of erns silk, each piped with the other. For a girl of eight is a charming dress of two odd but beautiful cashmeres, one being a subdued sill- . roar and the other a correepontimir tint called 'ow-414 green." The front of the skirt is a plain row of the 'Wilder tint, edged on both lades by silk galMon of bright dentask colors; the rest of the ' tiff, of the darker tint is a abort kilt. 'the upper garment (the whole dreg is fastened together, however), is very long and consists of a bong cut-away vest et the lighter and a coat of the darker material; the coat is edgeO with the gal-loos, and narrow back.rorms are piped with the bed cloth and end in little loops over the kilt.

There is also a very popular style simulating a jacket and kilt aide or boa plaitedwhich is made up in flannels, serges or cashmeres, and is trimmed with several rows of binding doubled and stitched on. The sailor-suit is as popular as ever, both for little boys under six, who wear the gored skirt, and for that happier class who wear the little loose knee pants. Light, brown and gray flannel. as well a. blue, is now used for these suits, trimmed with braids of contrasting colors, and lovely ones are of white. the sash having long. graceful fringe.

The latest thing in hosiery is the Roman style, which shows many colors beautifully combined.

By far the bast hose. whether in cotton, silk or woollen, are ribbed, because they cling to the leg and fit much more perfectly than any others will do., Brettle's London goods are the best manufactured.

Chula straw-colored chip is daintily trimmed with satin ribbon to match passing round the crown, and crossing on the brim at the right, passes beneath the binding. At the front is a cluster of flowers. and several little cluster loops of narrow blue satin ribbon are placed here and there on crown and brim. For shade hats there is the "Gtwiss," a new openwork straw ' mixed or plain, which is lined with color and has a simple band about the crown and a bow on top, that the beauty of the straw may Dot be hidden. There are also pretty Leghorns with a fluffy ruche of fringed blue silk and Valenciennes bcaeath the edge of the brown brim. and a creamy heart and ostrich plume placed high about the low crown, the fringed scarf and the willow tip of the plume falling behind. There are new sailor hats for boys and girls made of fine Panama, called "French palm" hats. There are straw hats with odd-shaped crowns, among them being crowns which, though round at the base, have four distinct corners at the top. These are very convenient plain hats, similar to the sailor shape, of mixed or plain straw, the brim of which may be turned up or down, all round or In places, according to fancy or the exigencies of summer or winter. There are also very funny but cute little soft caps of cloth to match the Ulsters (which, by-the-way, are extremely liked for children of all ages and both sexes), which are pointed sharply; the point being bent over against the side, with a tassel, and trimmed with rows of silk stitched on by machine.

One day a benevolent physician (who bad read the books). having found a stray poodle suffering from a broken leg, conveyed the poor creature to his home, and after setting and bandaging the injured limb gave the little outcast its liberty again and thought no niore about the matter. But how great was Lis surprise, upon opening Lis door one morning some days later, to find the grateful poodle patiently waiting there, and in his company another stray dog, one of his legs, by some accident, having beets broken. The kind physician at once relieved the distressed animal, nor did he forget to admire the inscrutable goodness and mercy of God, who bad been willing to use so humble an instrument as the poor outcast poodle for the inculcating of, etc., etc. SEQUEL. The next morning the benevolent physician found the two dogs, beaming with gratitude; waiting at his door, and with them two other dogs cripples. The cripples were speedily healed, and the four went their way, leaving the benevolent physician more overcome by pious wonder than ever. The day passed, the morning came. There at the door sat now the four recomtructed dogs, and with them four others requiring reconstruction. This day also passed, and another morning came; and now sixteen dogs, eight of them newly crippled, occupied the sidewalk, and the people were going around. Bv neon the broken legs were all set, but the pious wonder In the good physician's breast was beginning to get mixed with involuntary profanity. The sun rose once more. and exhibited thirty-two dogs, sixteen of them with broken legs, occupying the sidewalk and half of the street; the human spectators took ep the rest of the room. The cries of the wounded. the songs of the healed brutes and the commente of the on-looking citizens made great and inspiring cheer. but traffic was interrupted in that street. The good physician bad hired a couple of assistant surgeons and got through his benevolent work before dark, first taking the precaution to cancel his church membership, so that be might express himself with the latitude which the case required. Hut some things have their limits. When once more the morning dawned, and the good physician looked out upon a massed and far-reaching multitude of clamorous and beseeching dogs, be said, "I might as well acknowledge it. I have been fooled by the books; they only tell the pretty part of the atorv. and then stop. Fetch me the shotgun; ibis thing has gone along far enough." fie issued forth with his weapon, and chanced to step upon the tail of the original poodle, who promptly bit him in the leg. IN ow. the great and good work which this poodle had been engaged in had engendered in him 'such a mighty and augmenting enthusiasm as to turn his weak bead at last and drive him mad. A month later, when the benevolent physician lay in the death throes of hydrophobia, he called his weeping friends about him and said: "Beware of the books. They give but half of the story. Whenever a poor wretch asks you for help, and you feel a doubt as to what result may flow from your benevolence, give yourself the benefit of the doubt and kill the Spill. cant." And so saying, he turned his face to the wall and gave up the ghost. Graphic Story of a Pennsylvania Elopement. Pittsburg Leader.)

FAVORITE OF "'MILE FORTUNE. Heiress to $100.000-A Romance Which Proved a Reality. (Special Desvatch to the Cateinnati Gazette.) Dawroit, April 22.Mrs. Harris, a widow lady, arrived here from Mt. Gilead, O., this morning, and put up at the Hagenbrick House, Tldrti street. Her purpooe in coming here was to meet her son, who is a eontimercial traveller, and he is expected this evening. Mrs. Harris has just been advised of a streak of most eingular good luck, and is now on ber way to realize it. This is briefly the story: When Mrs. Harris was an infant, a maiden lady, an Invalid, was brought to the home of her parents, in Mt. Gilead, for treatment, her father being a physician of note in that region. This was nearly fifty years ago. The lady improved remarkably under the treatment she received, and she was nursed with such tender care that she soon recovered. She remained several months in the physician's family, and came to feel very much at home. During that period the subject of this brief sketch was "christened," and the invalid patient stood godmother to her. and she remarked at the time that she was wealthy, and would make the little one her heir at her demise. After her recovery to bealth,the maiden lady who had been patient and guest so long in the physician's ftimily, was wedded to a Mr.Rosecrans, a relativeau uncle, we think he wasto General Roserrans, with whom she lived many years, quite happily. 'Correspondence was ever kept up, at intervals, between the Rosecrans and Harris fami- lies,but the promise of the invalid,given many years before, was not regarded seriously, and certainly no hope of reward was built upon It. Mrs. Harris' father died in reduced circumstance, and herself and her husband also met with adversity. so that they had found it soinetimestdidicult to secure what was necessary to the support of their family. Several years ago the death of Mr. Rosecranti was announced, and since that event it appears correspondence between the widow and Mrs. Harris was more frequent; and when, a few years afterward, the husband of Mrs. If. also died, the two women drew upon each other for mutual sympathy. Recently the widow Rosecrans deceased, at the advanced age of eighty-two years, and with the official announcement or it to Mrs. Harris was the joyful intelligence that her friend had left to her $100,000. The good news came in an authentic shape, and arranging for her son to meet her in this city, Mrs. Lawrence started at once for Lawrenceburg, Ind., where she will take measures to secure her fortune. This is, in brief, the story, from whose notable pointsnot here even hinted ata romantic narration of marvelous interest might be detailed. Mrs. Ilarris is a a lady-like woman, with a pleasant face, winning ways, well-bred, and an interesting talker. She is -naturally very much elated at her prospects of good fortune. and thinks that. although lifty years of age, she will live long to enjoy her bettered condition with her family and friends. Mrs. Harris will start with her son for Lawreuceburg today. BANGLE BEGGING. The Rage for CoinsIs it Delicate to Ask Young Men for Money? Several years ago there was a rage among the young girls of our land for collecting buttons. Every girl under twenty years of age owned a string, and spent the greater part of her time in bending for additions to it. Mother's work-box suffered, not a decent looking button owning a "tag " being left in it; and the brothers complained that the 11i adornments on their clothes were continually missing. Even the dry goods and fancy stores were besieged, and bad to give out of their stock daily, being afraid it was "stingy" to deny a girl a glass or steel button, particularly when she asked for it so prettily. Lucky the girl wife had a father in the business! How she gloried in the long string she showed so triumphantly to her mates, and it was wonderful what a memory these button beggars had! They could run down a string of 400 odd buttons, and give the name of the donor of each, with apparent ease. But gradually the fever for button strings died out. They were given to the babies to play with, and their owners looked on in utter indifference as to whether they were swallowed by the infant or swept into the dustpan by the maids. But there must always be a rage for something; and now bangle begging has come into fashion. The anxiety of ladies to collect coins from their gentlemen friends is marvellous. The poor young men are besieged every time they make an evening call for ten-cent pieces and quarters. And if it stopped here it would not be so bad, But not only does the young roan have to give the quarter or dime, but he must take it to a silversmith, have one side polished and fantastically inscribed with the monogram of the river. This fashionable system of extortion has been reduced to a science and rages among the young belles in ae best societly. much emulation being displayed as to who shall collect the largest number of coins. When a sufficient number has been collected they are made into bracelets, necklaces and waist ornaments. I know of one young lady-who has a complete set and displays them on every occasion to the envy of her less fortunate sisters. Before bangle begging became fashionable a young lady would have been overwhelmed with mortification at being obliged to ask a young gentlemanlor money. But now it is , done with the sweetest 5f smiles and without a sign of a blush. "I can't afford it." said Mr. A, a few days ego, "for it is running my accounts up to a frightful sum. But what can you say when a young lady asks you for a dime or a quarter? A fellow would be thought stingy and rude who refused. He can't refuse, and yet my bill at Mr. Cutter'efor polishing and inscribing coins was over eleven dollars last month." For a young lady to ask for money for any purpose places her in a false position, and it is a mystery to a great many ofder ladiesand gentlemen, too bow a young and modest girl can besiege her gentlemen friends, and even merest acquaintances, for toping with which to adorn her neck and arms, without changing color. One thing is certain, they never meet with a refusal, no matter how puor the young man may be, and perhaps this gives them courage for each fresh attack. - CONSTANCE STEELING. MURDER WILL OUT And Murderers Will Be CaughtA Peculiar Case Discovered In TexasHow the Man Was Captured. (From the Dallas Herald.) Last night the Sheriff of Dodge County, Neb., passed up the Texas Central road, having in charge a man named Marcus Withersau, accused of murder. Withersau was paying court to a young lady named Bradley, who resided in the town of Fremont, Neb., and was engaged to be married to her, when a stranger named Joel Lauridge came to the town. Lauridge succeeded in a short time in claiming a good part of the young lady's attention. This greatly displeased Withersau, who is of a very Jealous temperament,and he was not slow in giving his apparent rival many evidences of his ill-will, openly insulting him whenever an opportunity was offered. Yet young Lauridge, being received with favor by the young lady, continued to visit her. The engagement between Withersaa and his affianced was unbroken, however, and the wedding day had been fixed upon. One evening Withersau, while on his way to town to visit his affianced, met her in company with Lauridge out riding, and, seized by a fit of jealousy, he galloped up to them and shot Lauridge, killing him almost instantly. He fed the country, and it was thought he bad gone back to Canada, where be bad formerly lived. He wore on his band a seal ring of the young lady, which was mounted by a gold cross, and it was this that led to his arrest. A young man named Swakey, a cousin of Miss Bradley, had enlisted in the United States Army, and was ordered along with his company to Fort Duncan on the Rio Grande. He had never seen Withersau, but had frequently heard his cousin describe the ring belonging to her, which Withersau wore when be killed Lauridge. One day be saw a strange man at the fort wearing the identical ring, but, on inquiring the stranger's name he gave it as Bill Poindexter. The soldier wrote to the authorities of Fremont, giving a description of the man and ring, and the Sheriff, being satisfied the wearer of the ring was Withersan, came after and captured him. AN UNDERTAKER'S STORY. Some Persons Who Don't Pay Their Bills-- Au Expose of a Bad Business. One of our contemporaries asserted recently that the undertakers of Allegheny were about to organize for their protection from a class of deadbeats who took advantage of them. A Leader man interviewed one or two of the members of that profession in Allegheny, and learned that the occasion giving rise to a report of that kind was the recent appearance in Allegheny of a Chicago man, who proposed to the business men of that city to get up a black hat of parties who are known to be in the habit of failing t pay their bills. The enterprise i not to be confined to undertakers alone, but some of that fraternity have entered into the arrangement in connection with a number of other business men. A list of parties owing bills is to be furnished quarterly, each subscriber to have a copy as a means of eroteetion to himself. On inquiry as to whether there was much difficulty in collecting undertakers' bills, it was asserted by one gentleman that. contrary to what one would suppose, many people have no compunctions about burying their friends at the undertaker's expense. anti be stated that he knew fatuities who owed all the undertakers in the neighbood, having gone from one to another until they had gone the rounds. He also said that it was almost impossible for a hardworking man to pay the 14 mount required for a funeral, but that the working classes were by far the best pay. The ones who cause the undertaker the most loss are those who make a great display at funerals, and who give their orders regardless of cat. In regard to the recent discusdion ef the C.

SOME OfMIESTINS STATEMENTS. A Glance at Some of the Principal - Workrooms. Labor is one of the greatest blessings that God bas bestowed upon His thildren; It is ennobling and fascinating. From the unlettered and untutored man, who Is naturally compelled to perform the harder species of physical labor, to the patient Pelletier who gropes his.way througk the labyrinthian lore of past ages, in order to discover some gem of thought that will shed its light and Influence on ages as yet unborn, life in either position Is ennobled by the discipline and application necessary to the performance of their separate twice, In New England more especially than in any other section of the Country, labor has always been, and still is, highly respected. Probably nowhere else Is there so large a field for skilled labor, and nowhere does intelligence and inventive power do so much ,to supply the place of mere physical strength, thereby opening to the female sex a broad avenue for their advancement and support. By the employment of females of intelligence,and by a proper sub-division of labor, not only excellence is acquired, but many operations requiring mere muscular force and monotonous repetition are performed more rapidly and with greater uniformity than they could be done by hand. Before the late civil war there were comparatively few women engaged in the several branches of industry in the city of Boston. owing to the fact that they were considered too weak to stand the labor and fatigue, men as a general thing being employed in almost every department of trade. During the late unpleasantness it becanie necessary to employ female skill in order to furnish clothing as rapidly as was needed for the use of our soldiers in the field. At the close of the war, however, over fifty thousand men were returned from the field, and on being mustered out of the service, exchanged the uniform of the soldier for the habiliments of he citizen, and the women with their sewing machines, who in a single night on many an occasion had clothed a whole regiment, were once more thrown out of employment and brought into competition with the sterner sex. As a natural result females were taxed to their utmost capacity, owing to the improvement of taste that had taken place and to the standard of excellence that had been acquired, so that only the most ingenious could had employment. The successful ones, however, became the recipients of better pay owing to the requirements of the times. Before the war girls' wages ranged from five to ten dollars per week. At present, however, their wages range from eight to twenty dollars per week. When the last census of the city of Boston was taken, in the year 1875, IG was ascertained that there were 99,453 single, 17,024 widowed and 300 divorced females in the city of Boston. flow many of these fernlike are provided with homes by their parents it is a matter of impossibility to determine, but it is safe to say that fully one-half of the number aro compelled to earn their own living in some department of industry. Nearly 30,000 of this number are known as Saleswomen and working girls. The magnitude or the work done by Boston working girls can only be estimated when we con-eider that the products of their skill and industry are sought after in the most distant parts of the known world. It has been estimated by unquestionable authority Mat in this city alone Girls are Employed in at Least Seventy Distinct Occupations, having by their excellence Crowded men out of their original domain, not only in the professions, but also In the industrial branches. The most important are dress-making, manufacturers of clothing, carpet-making, millinery, cigar-making, glove-making, hat and cep-making, hair work, artificial flowers, hose-making, shirt-making and worsted knitting. In regard to the social life of the girls. it has been Racer wined that many have come trom the country with their families, either from economy or else in order to pieserve the sanctity of their homes unimpaired. In every 100 working girls it appears that at least fifty live at home, and the remainder make their hornet) in boarding-houses. The condition of our working girls at the present time, constituting, as they do, one-tenth of the entire population of this city, is indeed very flattering. Anxious to ascertain still further information in regard to the exact condition of the working girls of this city, a representative of the GLOBE was seat yesterday in quest of new facts and information bearing upon the subject, with instructions to visit the leading dry goods houses of the city, and by making a proper investigation of affairs precisely as they presented themselves to his gaze. to report thereon. Several small establishments were visited in consonance to this order without eliciting any additional or new facts e At last our representative called upon a leading dry goods dealer. Having stated his mission that gentleman received him in his usual affable style, and at once prepared to gratify the wishes of our representative. "Before I go through the building with you, however," quoth be, "I desire to make a short statement in regard to working girls. , Fifteen years ago such a thing as a girl in a large dry goods store was actually unknown. We employed men entirely, owing to the fact that we considered them better titled for the business. Since the war, however, we have learned that The Services of Salesladies are indispensable in certain departments. For instance, in our dress goods, ladies' underwear, Titlinery and dressmaking departments they excelYin so far that there is no comparison between their services and those of men clerks. We have always endeavored to secure the services of intelligent women. irrespective of nationality, and wherever we find them honest, faithful and willing it has always been our endeavor to retain their services, and at the same time to remunerate them in a manner commensurate with their endeavors. During periods of sickness. if they are in need, we are always willing to liquidate their expenses, and they are always gladly welcomed on their return. I have a great deal of experience with salesladies," continued the dry goods dealer, "and I muet say that in their own departments they are far superior to our male employee. As a general thing they are honest, painstaking and reliable, and I fail to remember when I had occasion to discharge one of eur lady saleswomen. We pay and treat them well, and they are satisfied and pleased. There are many people who look down upon saleswomen as being untutored and ignorant creatures. In this particular they are mistaken. In our establishment today we have ladies who have formerly been wealthy, arid who have occupied independent positions in life. We have also girls who have been governesses and school teachers, and who have given up their accepted professions in order to accept positions in our establishment. During the past year we have had five girls only who quitted our employ, and they did so only to better their condition by getting married and Becoming Honest Wives of Good Men. I tell you sir, ,1 have pea .. faith in lady saleswomen. We have never bad occasion to make discharges. Our girls grow up with us, and they never quit our employ. Our hours, that is to say our working hours, are from 8 in the morning until 12, and from 1 in the afternoon until 6. We always allow one hour for dinner, and we provide them with all of the necessary accommodations for the proper enjoyment of the same. Their neatness and cleanliness is also something to be admired. Wily, sir, they are as neat and clean in their appearance as a new pin, and respectful in their manner and speech to customers, superiors and subordinates. If you will cotne up-stairs with me I will endeavor to furnish you with an inside view of the employment and characteristics of out lady saleswomen." On the first floor we observed several ladies busily engaged in their endeavors to dispose of the wares of their employers, but their numbers were so small that we passed on up the stairs to the second floor, without offering any comment. The magnificent elevator erected by the firm is indeed an easy Mode of Conveyance, and a pleasurable one also, as you are "lifted" into unknown space without any eudeaver on your part, and at the same time telephonic speed is accomplished without difficulty. A pleasantly-spoken boy announces the numerical standing and position of the doors; and as you emerge from the "elevator state-room." you are at once confronted by an air of activity and bustle that is at once refreshing and business-like. Added to this fact, a score or more of young lathes are encountered, whose pleasure, duty and occupation appear to be to please the guests or customers of the house. Boys run hither and thither in the fulfilment of their industrial vocation, attending to their duties; while Staid. Honest New England Women are to be seen inspecting goods of all qualities and designs, some intent upon purchasing, while others are simply going through a tour of inspection. On arrival, and after having been discharged from the elevator, our guide at once called our attention to the ladies employed upon the floor. The dress goods department was in order. Elegantly, well-made frames of an inanimate nature were placed at intervals upon the floor. while handsome and cultured salesladies endeavored by mild, persuasive eloquence to dispose of the ready-made suits, Wit, satin and worsted. "There," ejaculated our guide. as a handsome, middle-aged young woman Bitted past us, engaged in perfectiug the last edition of a sale, viz.: the transferring of the goods to a package or parcel boy. "There gees a lady who was tot merly very wealthy; she is a simple saleslady now, but she has seen better times. she married a man worth in the aggregate at least $200,000. He was a very poor business titan. He speculated, and, as a natural consequence, he failed. Shortly after his failure be died, leaving this lady a widow.

Struck dumb with astouishment at seeing such a girl employed in the capacity of a saleslady, we ventured to inquire the reason of her being compelled to seek such employment. "It's a long story and a sad one. She is a great good girl. and worthy of adorning the home of some good rich man. She was born in Louisiana; her father was a distinguished jurist, and a man pre-eminent among his tellow-men. The late civil war was inaugurated while be was carrying on his business as a plenter in Plaquemine Parish. Originally a Union man, he finally by persuasion drited into the vortex of rebellion.

Soon after the war had ended be removed from Louisiana to Boston, and failing to acquire success in business he committed suicide while on a visit to New York city. Self-protection is the first law of nature, and being compelled to support herself she naturally sought for a sphere where intelligence and industry would enable her to secuze a livelihood. 'She applied to this store, told her pathetic story, inquiries were made into the truthfulness thereof, and today the young lady in question is pursuing her newly-acquired vocation as a lady saleswoman." In conclusion, there is one thing that we feel not only pleased, but even authorized in stating that it is a fact beyond dispute that the shop-girls of America, in point of skill and ability as well as character, are far ahead of those of any other country, and it is not presumption to say that those employed in Boston are equal, if not superior. to those in any city in the Union.- Other Work-Rooms. "To le acullar, Williams & Parker," said a lady, who has made shop-girls a study, to the writer, "more than to any other firm, is due the splendid treatment of the shop-girls of Boston during the dark times which followed the great fire. They sought out their poor girls, paidahem in full, furnished headquarters for them till temporary workshops could be provided and other firms were obliged to follow their example. Ohl they treat the poor girls splendidly. - They give them light, airy and pleasant quarters to work in, and pay them rather better than the average. The girls appreciate their good treatment, and there is not one that will say aught against the house. Well, all the girls employed in our big houses fare pretty well. Of the 550 names on the pay-roll at Macullar, Williams Parker's, 424 are females, who fill no less than five different shops. The two largest shops are each 100 feet in length and 45 in width. It is a pleasant sight to take a glance into one of the large rooms and see 150 girls at work with contentment and health pictured in their faces. When the dinner hour arrives the scene is a merry and interesting one. The passenger elevator reserved for them is called into use and in a wonderfully short space of time hundreds, who a few minutes before were industriously plying their needles or treading a machine, hurry through thellbusy streets to their respective homes. lint there are scores of others who live too far from the city's limits to return to their homes for the noonday meal, and they bring forth baskets and boxes tilled with good things, and take the initiator, steps to the preparation of a dinner. Now it must not be taken for granted that the girls eat cold dinners. If any of them do, it is but a matter of their.choice. The ovens for heating the pressing irons are at the disposal of the girls, and the facilities for making tea or roasting potatoes and apples are quite as good as most of them could find at home. Twenty of the girls are Portuguese. They are not so apt to learn as some others. but perform what thee have Pelmet:11,1th degelle-re.

B,EVENGE. How a Frenchwoman "Got Even " With an En allsh Marchioness. , An English Marchioness, tesident in the Legitimist faubourg, and avoiding the Napoleonites as "low," gave grand parties. To one of these an Englhih lady took, uninvited, a pretty French woman, a friend of the Empress. The pretty woman made herself conspicuous by her prettiness and flirtations, but the Marchioness found out Who she was and was disgusted. She said to her: "1 am so conscious of the honor you have done me in visiting me that I dare not expect a repetition of the compliment." The pretty woman grew pale, but smiled and ordered a cavalier to order her carriage. The pretty woman was clever, and finessed a revenue. She bribed the Marchioness' ,.feinme de chambre to give her a list of guests in- 'vited to the next soiree. Armed with this, she prepared a circular note, which he despatched to each of the invited late in the afternoon ( f the appointed day: "The Marchioness presents her ' compliments to so and so, and regrets that a domestic calamity will prevent her,' etc. She then went to a great "Mad Doctor," representing herself as the daughter of the Marchioness, and acting with the consent of her ladyship's family; she represented that her mother, the Marchioness, was afflicted with insanity. and her madness wus in the delusion that she was always having great parties. For instance, if Monsieur the Doctor would go to her ladyship's hotel that evening. he would find her dressed in great splendor, with the saloon Illuminated. adorned with ilower. and buffets covered with refreshments. The doctor went, on the understauding that he was to ob- tam n the proper police authority to take the Marchioness to the Matson De Sainte in the event of the representation made to him being confirmed in his own observation. He arrived at 10 in the evening; he was the firsttheonly guest; and though the Marchioness did not remember his name, she took it tor granted she had invited him and was profusely civil. His manner puzzled and his questions startled her, antras he grew abrupt as his perception of her lunacy became more clear, she was at last offended and rang for her servants. At the same time he made a proper intimation of his police authority, and the end of the story is that she was taken off by the doctor in hysterics. and detained as a prisoner in his asylum until the whole truth came out. All Paris was in roars, and the pretty flirt was a heroine forever. Protected by her august friend, she escaped retaliationa British MarchiOness too grand for wit. IVRO DISCOVERED AMERICA - Neither Columbus Nor Amerigo Vespucci, lEitt Plain John Cabot. A Wall street broker laid a wager the other day, says the New York Times, that Christopher Columbus discovered the continent of North America, and, of course, lost it. It is surprising how many intelligent persons entertain the same error. Knowing that he discovered a number of number of islands in the Western Hemisphere, they think that he must of necessity have discovered this continent also. They forget that he died in ignorance of the real grandeur of his achievement, believing Cuba, Terra Firma, and the other lands he had found to be remote parts of Asia. Amerigo Vespucci, after whom North and Solith America is named, did not discover the continent proper either. The land be discovered lay near the equator, and he, too, was deluded with the notion that it was a portion of Asia. John Cabot was the discoverer of North America, (some time in May, 1497), which he likewise supposed to belong to the dominions of the Grand Chant. He sailed along the coast for 300 leagues, and went ashore, without finding any human beings, though he believed the country inhabited. It is remarkable that the great discovezers of the Western World should all have been Italians; Columbus havinti been born in Genoa. Vespucci in Florence, and Cabot, presumably in Venice. The birth of Cabot is uncertain, as are his age and the place and time of his death. But the fact that the license granted him by Henry VII. calls him Kabotto, Venetian, would seem to determine the questioneof his nativity. The discoverers had a sorry fortune. Columbus, as we are aware, was treated with the blackest ingratitude by the King of Spain. When the officers of the vessel in which he was carried a prisoner to Spain offered to remove his chains, imposed noon him by royal order, he replied, "I will u ear them as a reminder of the gratitude of Princes." lie died, as everybody knows, neglected. in extreme poverty, of a broken heart. 'Vespucci had many trials and died poor, and Cabot, or Cabota, fell into Bitch obscurity that no one can tell where or when or how he died. Surely the auguries attendant on the birth of the Western World were not favorable, and in a superstitious age might have led to the belief that its history would not be marked by good fortune. A Splendid Place for Picnics. The beautiful grove known as Massapoag Lake Grove, at Sharon Heights, on the line of the Roston and Providence Railroad, has been leased by Mr. P. M.

"Jeff," the sprightly Boston correspondent of the Detroit Free Press, tells the following story: Talking of bankers recalls the adventure which a bank President from a country town lately met with in journeying over the Boston and Providence Railroad. He was puffing a cigar in the smoking car and ruminating upon dividends and discounts, oblivious of higher thoughts, when a burly individual. who had just entered amid taken a seat in front of him, turned around and remarked: "Sir, your cigar annoys me." "Sorry for that," replied the banker, emitting a graceful cloud. "I wish you to stop Smoking, Sir. I say it Offends me," continued the unknowe one. "sorry you don't like it, sir, but Non are not COMpelled to stay in the car if you don't." The smoker was beginning to be amused, the stranger to be excited. "It is a disgusting habit; sir.

I tell the tale as 'twas told to me and believe it to be substantially correct. A Startling Experiment in Dentistry. The bravest often quail at the prospect of a visit to the dentist, and endure martyrdom from toothache rather than submit to the extraction of the offending tooth. But when one's courage is screwed to the extracting point, it is evidently to the patient's advantage that the operation should be performed by a skilful band rather' than by the unpracticed one of the sufferer. A Frenchman residing in the environs of Paris held a contrary opinion, and it is still doublet whether his error may not cost him his life owing to the unusual manner iu which he played the role of dentist. He bad long been suffering from toothache, but obstinately refused to have recourse to a dentist, and at length, finding the pain unendurable, took the following uncommon method of extraction: To the tooth he attached firmly a Ion.' string, to the string a heavy stone. Thus armed , he proceeded to the topmost story of the house he occupied, opened the window and hurled the stone into tne air. The weight of the stone and the length of the string produced so violent a shock that not onlyswas the tooth pulled out. but with it a portion of the mans jaw. his neck being bo painfully twisted that he tainted. Hours ensued ere consciousness returned. When he ultimately recovered his senses it was Only to find himself deprived of the faculty of speech; in short, hie coedition was such that it was lound necessary to remove him to a hospital, where he now lies in a most precarious state. Should he quit the hospital a living man, it is to be hoped he will also be a wiser one. A Nevada Judge on Beecher.

He rebukes Clerk McCown for not having any tobacco, blasphemes the meek-eyed Marple for not having a pocketful of two-bit cigars, and insists that the Chronicle reporter shall iuvite him to drink and shoulder the responsibility of "standing off" the tarkeeper. This morning his head was drawn so far out of sight that his shoulder-blades stuck up on each side of his neck like the collar of an end-man in a minstrel show. The reporter surmised that the Beecher scandal had hit him. He was correct. "It's tough," said the venerable jurist, running his neck out a few inches, -it's tough to have a second dose of that kind of a cathartic. About forty men have eome in here this morning already and read Mrs. Tilton's letter, Beecher's denial, Halliday's chin music. Wheeler's interview and some editorials from the Tribune. But that ain't all that's worrying me. An old friend of mineTom Perkinsgot belted in the eye and then rushed off to Moses court and got out a warrant. Perkins and I mined together in California, and we've been chums for years. Half a dozen times he's been in my court charged with assault, and I've let him off as easy as I conscientiously could. Now he gets into trouble and throws 680 into the opposition shop. I s'pose when a man gets old his friends drop off one by one. Well, next time I get him up here on any charge I'll send him up for six months." Here a man came in with his right eye closed, and his Honor hastened cheerfully to make out the warrant. Praise Your Wife. (From Farm and Fireside.) Praise your wife, man; for pity's sake, give her a little encouragement; it won't hurt her. She made your home somfortable, your heart bright and shining; food agreeablefor pity's sake tell I her you thank her, if nothing more. She don't expect it; it will make her eyes open wider than they have done these ten years, but it will do her good, and you too. There are many women today thirsting for words of prailte, the language of en- couragement. Through summer's heat, through winter's toil. they have drudged uncomplainingly, and so accustomed have their fathers, brothers and husbands become to their monotonous labors that they look for and upon them as they do the daily rising of the sun, and its daily going down. Home every day may be made beautiful by an appreciation of its holies. You know, if you can take from your drawer a clean shirt whenever you want it, that somebody's fingers have ached in the toil of making it fresh and agreeable, so smouili and lustrous. The Value of Fresh Air, (London Record.) Recent statistics show that the rate of mortality among grocers is as 76 to 100 among the general population. at equal ages, while the death rate among drapers is as 108 to 100, by the same standard. On analyzing the cause of this differ-- enee between the drapers ana grocers it is found that it lies in the mode of living. The disease which destroys the draper is pulmonary censumplion. The explanation is simple. Toe gmcer lives in a shop, the clisir of which is open the whole day, and be is very active himself in business. The draper, on the other hand, lives in i close place, with the doors of the shop closed. and in a dusty, close atmosphere. No one whose pleasure or business calls on him to enter the majority of our large drapery emperuntis in London but will fesi in a position to testify to the truth of this description. The heat and closeness whieh are their usual characteristics sufficiently account for the general pallor and unhealthy appearance of the male and female attendants in them. " Go and See Mrs. Smith." - The St. Louis papers tell a marvellous story of a merchant there named sleth.
