" ' * ' li •> '' '* a f r •«!««' il BAB'S BRIGHT BABBLE. Kclioe* of Sprlns tile In Gay and Busy New York. NEW YOKK, April 81. Special Correspondence. The usual spring desire for visiting studios and dining in bachelor apartments has taken firm hold on the fashionable girl. The possession of a studio does not necessitate that the lost should be very much of an artist. Indeed he usually simply dabbles at painting, buys other men's pictures, makes his apartments a veritable house beautiful, and he is always pretty certain of having the girls he kno\vs drop in to visit him. They •come in twos, in threes, and in greater . numbers. They discourse learnedly about harmonies, symphonies, and drink his tea. or choke over his Turkish coffee, and go away feeling that they have given a fresh impetus to art, and that in the years to come they will be looked at in the pictures painted by this man and greatlv admired. THEIR COUNTERFEITS IN AKT. Next to having a photograph taken, a woman likes best to be painted. It would seem that she ought to like being perpetuated in oil best of 'all, but she doesn't. What she likes is to have it done quickly, and the innumerable sittings required for a painting are rather upsetting to her. She can never understand why an artist can't copy her from a photograph, and no matter if her knowledge of art extends as the darkies say, from A to Izard.she cannot comprehend why a living model is preferred to a paper one. But to return to the studio—which young woman often does. STUDIOS WHICH AFFECT THE EGYPTIAN. It has its Egyptian room and it has its French room, and the picturesque girl may pose as a languid Egyptian or as a chic Frenchwoman, as seems most desirable to her. The Egyptian room has its walls hung in red—deep burning red, and the cushions of the same color, with here and there, by way of contrast, a yellow one. that shines like the sands of the desert. The pictures represent the sphniz in -every view possible, and all the dreary tiresome desert scenes with a solitary figure, or a property camel in the foreground, and everything that belongs to the yesterday of a thousand years ago. It's impressive; but when it comes to a question of living in it, you might as well go to the tombs of the Ptolemys and have a wake. It is woefully, wearfully, and wickedly depressing; and the young woman who seeks the brightness of the French room has a healthy frame of mind, and is likely to find a great deal of pleasure in life. THE EGYPTIAN'S IDEA OF A GKEAT TIME. I do not wonder in the ' least that the Egyptians did so much killing. Whenever they wanted to have a thoroughly good time they went out to till somebody; whenever they wanted -:rto have a better time, they looked at •their enemies being embalmed, and whenever they wanted to reach the height of bliss they went and sat where all the mummies were and looked at them. I have of ten wondered if there was any connection between the Eyp- tian and the Irish liking for funerals— if some relative of Cleopatra's could have married an O'Connor, or an O'Shaughnessey, or a Moriarty who introduced a little liveliness into their funeral manners. IS A FKENCH AKT CORNER. But the French room, the artistic French room has its windows filled with boxes of bright flowers. There are pretty little tables with bits of fine china upon them.There are easy-chairs with pale rose and white cushions upon them, and there are delightful yellow covered books here, there, and everywhere; while on the walls there are pastels and water colors, rand oils that are pictures of people, not sphinxes, not sand of the desert, but what you and I like—people, men and women. You can. stand in front of a pretty ballet girl, laugh for ten minutes over her coquettish attitude, then •suddenly realize how perfectly correct her figure is and how well the colors are laid on. YouQcan find delight in a group of merrymakers who are having a picnic, and after you have noted each special figure, it suddenly dawns on you how well the trees are done, and you think that man, if he hadn't the sense you know him to possess, might have given you a tiresome old landscape with not a figure in it. When will makers of books, ers of pictures, and rcuikers of plays realize that what mankind wants to read, to see, and hear is the Dever-tiring picture of humanity? that landscapes grow tiresome, that desert sands and animals pall upon one, but •that the picture of a living, moving, "breathing man or woman, presented as it may be, showing intelligence and lieart, is the most interesting thing in the wide world, and one of which nobody ever tires. HOW TO WRITE FOR TOSTERITT. The. books that have lived have been heart stories; the pictures that were painted generations ago, and which to-day are revered, are almost invariably portraits of men and women; and the plays that hold the stage year out, and of which the world never tires, are not stories of motives, are not analytical studies, but are speaking pictures of the passions of mon and women, portraying their sufferings and their joys, telling of envy, hatred, and malice, but also of hope, goodness, and love, Most of all about love. My dear soul, it not only makes the world go round, it makes everything else go round—every other planet. A Frenchman says, 'Speak of love and you love." He says nothing whatever about writing about it, specially about typewriting it, so one may rush in and not altogether count one's self a fool. THE WISE WOMAN IX LOVE. Love has been defined as a torment, a delight, a bore, a bother, the sole taste of either paradise or—the other place. It may be taken for granted, however, that given two people in health, with a keen enjoyment of sunshine and the spring weather, attracted for some reason, to each other, with a charm of novelty about this attraction—for the love of to-day is curiously enough always different from the love of yesterday—the most perfect of love will be possible if only one loves, and that one the man. A man quickly wearies of the woman who loves him. For awhile adoration is delightful, then it is like too much sweet and cloys him. A woman is wisest when she has a sincere affection for a man, and her wisdom is that of the serpent when she always keeps an attraction in reserve for him and he is never quite sure of the charm that may come next. When he next meets her she may greet him either with the words he has most longed for, or a perfectly dressed salad. He doesn't know whether there will be a sweet invalid who can make his heart swell with joy, because his hand only can make the poor head stop aching; or whether a bright coquette will offer to pin a rosebud in his coat. Isfever to let a man be quite sure of the secret, for certainty and satiety are twin sisters. WHEN I.OYB IS 3IOST LASTING. Love and affection are unlike in one thing; affection should be the vin or- dinaire of life, love that curious liqueur called parfait amour, which you take in a tiny glass just after dinner. Then it is appreciated, its flavor is enjoyed, and there is just enough to make life piquant. Somebody said, "The history of love would be the history of humanity; it would be a beautiful book to write." And yet, with the exception of a long ago writer, whoever has attempted to write the history of love has always made the mistake of making it the history of woman. Why? Wall, one is to be the never-understood creation, the other the never-to-be-analyzed emotion. But, after all, this sermon on love is best summed up by quoting what a clever man said long ago (by the by, how much cleverer things men say than women—that is, how much better worth remembering are the things they say:) "A woman by whom we are loved is a vanity; a woman whom we love is a religion." HOW WISE WOMEN KEEP WELL. There was one reason why the smart New York woman looked well on Easter Sunday—she was thoroughly and beautifully clean. For four days before, at one time or another, at one bath or another, she had been scrubbed and rubbed, showered and sprayed, and came out feeling herself like a new sort of fhpwer prepared to look its best on Easter Sunday. I see the usual wail, about the society woman breaking down is going through the newspapers, and it is as absolutely untrue as that the farmer's wife leads an idyllic life. The woman of the world is as well taken care of as a thoroughbred horse. She is rubbed until her satiny skin glows, takes her beef tea when she comes in at night, in the place of a warm mash, and while she enjoys a good dinner, she doesn't allow herself to eat too much or too often. She is\ too wise Qto devour quantities of csweets and ice?, and the dogs that after^her bath she wants to take a walk on the sunny side of the street, and if the sunshine does put a freckle or two on her face it will make her eyes clear and her skin healthy-looking. The extremely athletic young woman isn't as wise as this one, for hanging on bars and trapezes and doing all sorts of things that they do at the circus are 'not exercises calculated to make women beautiful in form; they make them muscular and a little bit masculine; but you are not particularly anxious to have your daughter that way, are you? A UNIQUE EASTEB LUNCHEON. There were some pretty. Easter souvenirs at a luncheon the other day that all pointed a moral. A party of ten women resolved to make over their last spring bonnets for Easter and give the money for the new to some young girls to whom a new bonnet on Easter day would mea'n perfect delight. A man who heard of this gave a luncheon, and the sovenirs were in the shape of willow hats gilded and filled with hyacinths and jack roses, while the broad white ribbon loops had the name and date in gold upon one and on the other this twisting around of an old quotation. "She 'did good by stealth, and blushed to find it fame." These girls were perfectly delighted at the thoughtfulness of the man. You know it is very nice to do good and then have somebody find it out. HOW TO ENCOUHAGE3PEOPLE. In fact, all of us would be a great deal sooder if we were encouraged more. \ What kind of encouragement? There is an immense amount of encouragement in a pleasant greeting-—a greeting that means you're here, and I am here, and it is a happy world. There is an immense amount of encouragement in two or three loving words-—the little affectionate words that don't count for so much,,apparently, but that make cold ones and stern ones easier to bear. There's an immense amount of encouragement in a few written lines of hopefulness; it's giving a drink of cold water to somebody who is perishing. There's an • immense amount of encouragement in a look or a pressure of the hand that means "I know your trouble and sympathize with you," but the people so often forget this. There is an immense amount of encouragement to be given by you and me every twenty-four hours of the day, given to -men, women and children. Let's do it this way. There are twenty-four hours of the day, and you and I may resolve to say the positive word, the judicial word, or the cross word, but we can stop for one minute in the twenty-four hours and change our minds and say the pleasant and the sympathetic one. Chage our minds? Why, of ocurse we can. It's the privilege of every woman all over the world. It is your privilege, and it is also the privilege of BAB. IN WOMAN'S BEHALF. LET US BE LOYAL. Oh, this ringing; in the ears! Oh, this humming in the head! Hawking, blowing, snuffing-, gasping, Watering eyes and throat a-rasping, Health impaired and comfort fled, Till I would that I were dead! What folly to suffer so with catarrhal troubles, when the worst cases of chronic catarrh in the head are relieved and cured by the mild, cleansing and healing properties of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. It purifies the foul breath, by removing the cause of offence, heals the sore and inflamed passages, and perfects a lasting cure. DR. J. MILLER & SONS—Gents: I ean speak in the highest praise of your YegetableExpectorant. I was told by my physician that I should never be better; my case was very alarming. I had a hard cough, difficulty in breathing, and had been spitting blood at times for six weeks. I commenced usingthe Expectorant and got immediate relief in breathing. I soon began to get better, and in a short time I was entirely cured, and I now think my lungs are sound.—Mrs. A. E Turner.' dec7d&w6m Randolph, Mass. and while she is very often, the wit, she is just as often the wisdom of an afternoon tea, and she is the woman who is going to look well when she is fifty or sixty, because she does understand. THE AI£T OF TAKING CARE OP [HERSELF. The Russian bath is 'her greatest help in this, and once a week sees her religiously going through the ceremony, making a dash into ihe plunge, being sprayed until she glows, bundled up in blankets until she is thoroughly warm, then rubbed dry, and out she comes looking as bright as a new dollar, feeling as if she had cast off a garment of dirt and was in her right mind.

Floyd at the Ke- cent Annual BrcakfaHt of the Krooklyn Hfclgrhtrt Seminary Club. Mrs. President, Dear Old Stfioolmatcs, and Sfew Ones: I have but one thought to suggest to you to-day, and that is, LET US I!E LOYAL TO EACH OTIIEIi! In the name of all my "out-of-town" sisters, whether here present in the body or in spirit, I give our "in-the- city" members a cordial and most hearty hand-clasp! We are so glad to see you! "Changed a little?" Why, of course, some of us have 'not met for over a dozen years—that's to be expected. Curious,'isn't it? What a halo of silver mist the years cast over the days that are gone! * * * A group of schoolmates were talking over one that was absent. One busybody declared that the absent one had been seen kissing a handsome young man on the corner of Henry and Pierpoint streets. As she was too young to have a fiance,, and as she was also known to have no brothers, this was considered in the last degree reprehensible and unladylike. (Several of the other girls exclaimed over it: "I •wouldn't have thought she would do such a thing, would you?" when up spoke a dear friend of hers: "I don't believe it! There's some good explanation for it! I won't believe that Jen did such a thing as that, until she tells me so herself." As they were speaking, in walked the "Jen" under discussion. She was told the story, and asked if it were true. Her eyes danced with mischief, she stood with her arm about the waist of her friend who had defended her, and said: "That I kissed a gentleman on the corner of Henry and Pierpont streets yesterday morning, yes, it is true—but that gentleman was—my handsome and young-looking Father! Now you girls need not be setting your caps for him., [ tell 3 r ou—for he's already spoken tor!" The girls all laughed, except the one tvho had started the gossip, and she slunk out of the room. ***** * # A former student at Brooklyn Heights seminary (let us call her Alice,) happi- iy married to a man of means and leis- ire, was one day riding down the Ave- lue de 1'Opera, in Paris. In the course it their way the crowd of vehicles caus- :d their prancing horses to come to a standstill opposite a number of little tables .on the sidewalk, just outside a well- inown cafe. Seated at one of the tables, dressed in i striking, showy "toilette," was a iandsome woman, with beautiful large syes and flaxen blonde hair. Her companions were three Frenchmen, dressed in the height of fashion. Wine was in the glasses before them—they were laughing and talking with much gaiety and snjoyment—and all four were smoking ligarettes. A second later, and our stu- ient friend recognized Mamie X , whom she had often walked arm-in-arm with to school not so many years before. The recognition was mutual. Alice bowed in a slow, amazed fashion, wondering if she were not in some strange dream. But Mamie's wits were sharper. The red flush of shame sprang to her fair face, her cigarette dropped from her fingers, and starting suddenly, she knocked over one of the wine-glasses and it fell to the pavement with a crash. Simultaneously, the crowd of vehicles moved on a space, and chirruping to his horses, the driver of Alice's carriage passed on quickly, and trotting down the smooth boulevard, they were soon lost to sight. The next day, by some strange chance of Providence, they met again in. the Magasin du Louvre. Each was alone shopping. Alice saw Mamie first. Without stopping to reflect, she walked right over to her old schoolmate and said: "Mamie, don't you know me?" Again the tide of crimson surged over the fan-face. "Yes, of course I do, hut I shouldn't think that you would want to know me." "Why not? Surely you can not have done much wrong, Mamie. You have only been foolish, that is all. I can not think very badly of you." To her surprise, Mamie, burst into great sobs right then and there. Sheledher away to a quiet spot, and, _ little by little, soon knew all her sad story. She had married a Frenchman, a confirmed absintheur, and that, as you are aware, brings many evils in its train. He had been a gambler and a scoundrel, and all her associations through him had been of a debasing sort. She had never done any thing really evil herself, all her natural instincts having been good and true. It is too long a story to tell you all the details of it, but the result of this chance meeting was this: Mamie is now a teacher in one of our own American cities, loved and respected by many. Would the ending of this "o'er true tale" have been the same if the one schoolmate, prosperous, happy and safe, had ignored her weaker sister? !No doubt you all can join with me in recalling' many such incidents as these, for in the turning of the wheel of fortune marvelous changes in lives are wrought.- And they are not all sad, thank God. Many a timid, silent girl, that in her school days showed no signs of the gift within, has developed into a strong and noble character. One who stammered nervously over her lessons, is a brilliant conversationalist and a most charming hostess in her husband's home to-day. Another—her paintings bring high prices, and she is known and praised of all men. . Another, unmarried, who repudiates such a thing as a husband and children, has written poems of love and home, that have touched the heart of thousands. Another is a physician with a large practice. Her sweet, clear eyes ever see the best thing to be done, her kind heart ever does it tenderly, and her strong, lirin hand ever does it well! But the majority of us, married or single, live just quiet, plain home lives, •with no pretense of helping along with the stronger and harder things of the world. But that is no reason for feeling ihat our lives are colorless and dull. Every one is of use and value in her own place, if she will but fill that place royally and true. And so, dear schoolmates, if we speak of the days that are passed, and those that lived then, let us be loyal to each other! If we speajk words in the present, and of those who live now, let us be loyal to each other! And in the days to come, whether present or absent, whether "in the city" or "out of town!" in deed and in tkought, let us be loyal to each other!— Isabel Henderson Floyd. ESTThe democratic party made the last national campaign on an alleged surplus in the treasury. It now seems probable that it will try to make next year's campaign on an alleged deficit. It had no real remedy for a surplus, and most certainly has none to offer for a deficiency, even if one existed, which it does not. Isn't it about time for the bourbons to take up some real issue, or to present some workable plan of statesmanship, instead of making- a quadrennial appeal to tha ignorance of the people? — Toledo Blade.

They are apparently immovable in the belief that to experience benefit they must keep dosing withjdrastic medicines.
