NKW YOBK April 2J. 1833. There are always people who are hunting up when things were invented. You know the kind of people I mean —the people who say pepper was used by the Athenians, Helen of Troy bad buttons on her frock, and that those abominations known as rocking chairs were epoken of by the venerable Bede in this way: "The wome'n now are so luxurious that they do have chairs with wooden circles on the legs, and which eway back and forth la such sort that it maketh one sick to behold them." For my part I think the van- erable Bede mutt have been a sensible and knowing old chap, for if ever a woman looks silly it is when she is rooking, and It is too queer to Bee a whole lot of women in a hotel parlor unconsciously rocking in time and looking as if all the brains they ever bad were In their feet. These people who know so much say brooms were used in Egypt 2000 B. C. I wonder what they did with fhem? I wonder if the Egyptian maid of the day, I mean that day, swept, in a debounalre manner, the dust that was In the middle of the room and carefully omitted the corners, and under the tables, as Is the mode todaj? I woodrif she expressed HER TEMPER IN HER BROOM? I wonder if, when she thought of that Easter hat with nodding .plumes 'ind pink roees, the broom took swift short strokes that meant happiness? Or, if, objecting- to a late dinner on Sunday, or to the fact that the family didn't give her any terrapin, the. broom described a circle in the air, gave a vicious dab at dignity? And I wonder still more it the Egyptian maid used the broom as a weapon of defense against peddlers, sweeping at them and over them as if they were KU F $••: *).t<. . */;•••• P K-: GOMING DOWN! ,oc, •££.T-''"" - J-^'* •• -^^>V'?'"- X L^is&s IN Sorlbner for May Joseph Wetzler baa an article entitled.

GL&N BRCS., THE theatre-goer who goes out between the acts for liquid refreshments is a troublesome individual when he is wedged in between a lot of other people whom he disturbs' in passing in and out. Two members of this troublesome species were called down by a lady at Muncie the other day and were made-rather more conspicuous than they desired. Tho following special to an Indianapolis daily tells tho story: During- the performance at the Wyeor Grand Opera House at Muncie two gentlemen occupying inside seats arose to walk out between curtains, ietwetn them and the aisle sat Mrs. William Grffin, who refused -to let them pass, claiming that she had paid for the seat she was using and that she could not be annoyed every time the curtain fell by people running out to patronlza the bar. The gentlemen appealed to the management, but the laay was firm, and they were finally compelled to resume their seats and go "dry" until the performance was concluded. The attention of the audience was attracted by the utuaual wrangle, and the woman received rounds of applause becauieof her determination. It It DOW given out at Muncie that hereafter thirsty patrons will have to occupy aisle seats. i nothing more than black beetles? I consider that a woman who can sweep well, taking- in the corners, getting up the pins, discovering that lost ten cent piece, or that dropped dice, not to mention the poker chip that fell under the eofa. is the sort of woman who could be trusted to do anything and do it well. A broom is llko a weak-minded man; a strong will is required to control it, else it slips and slides, hither and thither, and finally falls down helpless. Personally, the chief use to which I put a. broom is to bang on the celling with it. This "may strike you as strange, but it is meant to express more than a mere thump. The family who live on the floor above me are at once Italian and musical, consequently,' wnen they feel their music too much they make an awfnl lot of noise. And as they object to carpets, at least we think so from the sounds we hear, when they are very lively, they have an inclination to do a little prancing and then I call the broom into service. One knock on the celling means "We can't stand this much longer;" and a series of knocks ending in a dull, sickening thud, Insinuates that the chandelier is elowly,but surely, descending upon two innocent women, and that they politely, but firmly, request that the Italian musical contingent will express their exuberance and their appreciation of e«-eet sounds, less with their feet and oftener with their eouls. I suppose-there is an opportunity here to make a pun—but. I am not a brave woman and I refrain. THE FRENCH MAN AND THE AMERICAN WOMAN. I don't often steal, but once in a while somebody else writes something so clever that I take it, and give them the credit for it, which, by-the by, lsn : t stealing after all. A Frenchman, who, properly enough, appreciates the American woman, has written a little account of the gifts that came to all women at their birth. The. teller of this little story is Leon Gozlan, and I make to him my bow in recognition of his politeness on the part of the general American woman. He says: "When woman was created there ap~ peared a fairy, and of the gifts in her possession she gave to the Castllian long and black hair, .,in which she might wrap heraeJf as -if it were a mantilla. "To the Italian, eyes bright and ardent as a midnight eruption of Vesuvius. "To the Turk, a form round as the moon, and soft as eiderdown.) "To the English, the Aurora Bore- alls, to glorify her cheeks, her lips •and her shoulders. "To the German, beautiful teeth and an earnest heart, profoundly inclined to love. "To the Russian, the distinction of a queen. "Afterward, she gave gaiety to the Neapolitan, wit to the Irish, good sense to the Flemish. Now, when the good fairy had given all these attractions to tha daughters of Eve,"and had, apparently exhausted her treasures, a gay little •figure came dancing up and asked for her share. "Who are you, ray dear. 1 said the good fairy ratber surprised. '•I—lama Parlalenne,' aiid the pretty woman. : " -Oh. I am grieved!' Bald the fairy; •I have g-iven everything and I have nothing lefc:> "The pretty woman wept with grief and then the fairy took pity on her, j and calling together all the recipients of her bounty, told the story to them and said: "I have been oyergenerou.- to all of you. Now, e'ach of you glvu a little of your gift to this one woman." And so It happened that the Paris- lenne combines In herself all that makes woman'delightful. At this time the American woman did not'.exist. When'she came, she was told the story and she didn't propose to be without the fascinations tbat are intensely feminine. Being like the Howard family of (jEngiand, who, during' the Flood, had a little boat of their own. SHE CALLED UP A FAIBY. for her special benefit. The good fairy advised her to imitate the Parisian ne, and, obeying her and adding her own natural wit, she stands today the pos. lessor of all good gifls with the added ones of French chic and American courage. Hence, in the opinion of the Frenchman, she is the most delightful woman in the world. Speaking of the English Howards naturally suggests the old families in this country. Everybody koowe of ihe late Richard Vaux, of Philadelphia, who was the only American who ever had the honor of dancing with tLe Queen of England. Few people, however, know bow his mother looked at it. This gentlewoman was a member of the Society of Friends, and had that peculiar pride o! family and of being a Friend that belongs to them. The story of her son dincing with the Queen was told 10 her. Friend Vaux listened to It with calmness and to the astonishment of her visitor raplied. very quietly, "Well, I must tell thee I don't altogether look upon that ai an honor. There is no knowing what it may lead to- Richard is a very handsome young man, and the Queen is unmarried, and I should not at all like the idea of Richard marrying her out of the meet, ing." BRIGHTENING UT ON REMINISCE NCES . Nowadays one needs to be up In anecdotes. The woman who is invited -out-much always haa to have something ready to tell, for she must not appear to a strange woman to talk about her friends as if she wished to announce exactly her social position. If jou haven't many stories, a very pood way to do, provided, of course, you are going to different houses, Is to use the eame one for a week and then start with a fresh one the next Monday. Last week I utilized this. Madame de Stael had been very intimate with the Viscomte De Choleeul, but she heard he said some very malicious things about her and was very angry. One day they met at a friend's house. Good manners required that the feud should be for. gotten, and that they should speak to each other. Madame de Stael com. menced by saying, "It is a long time since I have seen you, Monsieur de Choiseul." Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov*t Report aking thin dialogue: The renlri'qu'et "Well, Beauty, how do you like ynur broth?" Beauty answertd: "Toe broth is eood enough, but the bone ain';, up to time, but, nev>r mind, wo'II soon be back to New York" The proprietor said to tha ventrilqulal: "I've got to have that dog." Tee vettrUn quiet shook his head and auld: "Oa, no; I'm too fond of Beauty to sell him, and I wouldn't let htm go fnr less th&n a thousand dollars." The eage • purchaser got the thousand do!!are, and handed It to the'ventriloquist, but to his surprise, Beauty said: • LOOK here old man. have you sold me?" 7 he ventriloquist paid: 'Ye-: Fgot, a thousand dollars for you." You srono friend of mice," announced the Beauty, "if you lei me go for that little sum, but I'll get, even with you. In the future I'll never speak a d—d word." Tableau. Of course. I shan't u*e tha unpleasant word, but I tell the tale now as it «&» told to me. A woman I know is going to tell this, which to me has a slight odor of smart-on glacoe. Still. I may be mistaken. A little girl who id very pious, never omitted saying bar pray, ere. One night, when she was very sleepy, she only said: ''Sort bless papa and mamma, and all the neigh. borhoo'd. and deliver us from all our relation?." ' CRITICISM AND LADIES 1 LUNCHEON. Is it true that dotage and anecdot- age means the pame Iblng? Some people eay they do, but if that is the case, the elderly woman is de:idedly loathe fore here, for anecdotes are given a vogue, they never possessed before. It U difficult to know which are chestnuts, but commend me to a group of women friends to freeze out the teller of old tales. They haven't even the decency to pretend to laugh; the look straight at the unfortunate soul, and in that look they combine weariness and scorn, so that all the reat of her natural life that woman becomes a listener. If you don't believe me. go to a ladles' luncheon. That oft-described festivity which is never as rollicking as the newspapers make it out to be. Women are too much occupied as a general thing in deciding who made the bcdlce worn by another woman, which decision Is reached by the perfection of its bask seams, to ba very jolly. It is claimed by those who know, that only a French dressmaker can evolve a perfect back, and only a woman whose back is .perfect goes without a wrap and kneels for a very long time in church. This was told mo by a sister woman, and from her judgment —the general sister woman I moan— of our frock, of ourselves, of our homes and of mankind, we need to have a special litany asking to be da- livered. And when it is properly phrased I am sure It will bs eagerly adopted by all the world of women, as well as by BAB. MIXED THE BABIES. Mother* Who Loreil to Dance VT«r« Dl^ tntctrd for * \V*«k. Some time ngro there was a dance, in a Canadian settlement for the benefit of the settlers and their wives. Most of the married ladies had babies with them, whose noisy perversity required too much attention to allow the ladies the full swing- of their soul's pleasure in the dunce. So a number of young men present g-allantiy volunteered to watch over the refractory infanta, BO that their mothers could indulge without let or hindrance in the sweets of the "light fantastic" exercise. The piillant offer was readily and confidingly accepted, but no sooner had the women left their dear charges to the care of those mischievous younff" rascals than they commenced stuffing- the infants, changing- the clothing and giving- one the nppivrel of another until' they were transmogrified. The dance and the music continued into the "woo sma' hours" and then it was time to p-o home. The lights were lowered and each mother hurriedly took a baby, in the dress of her own, and started for home, which, iu many instances, was fifteen miles away. The following 1 morning there was a prodigious row in the settlement. Mothers discovered what had occurred, and then commenced some of the tallest female pedestrianisra on record. Living^ as they <lid miles apart, it required two full days to unmix the babies and as many months to restore the- mothers to their naturally sweet dispositions. Those young men never venture into that .settlement now. It 'wouldn't be safe. A New Woman In India. Miss Hilgrarai of Hyderabad, the first Mohammedan g-irl to try a university examination, has passed the first examination in the arts at the Madras university with honors in Arabic. Not being- allowed to leave the zcnaua, she- pursued her studies by herself under very great difficulties as she could not attend college lectures.

'•'••'Seriously Monsieur?" •' -I had a narrow escape from being poisoned." "Alas! Possibly you took a bite'at your own tongue?" This fell like a thunderbolt on the Vbcomte, but as it was told all over Paris it was a good lesson for a very notorious backbiter. For this week, I shall use ope told by that clever Fitz Williams, in his monologue. A ventriloquist and his dog, a bull pup, properly enough named Beauty, were .stranded in a Western town. For two days they had nothing lo eat. Then the ven. triloqulst concluded that they must have their dinner. He went into the dining room of the beat hotel. He seated himself, and the dog eat on the floor beside him. A polite waiter look •hie order, but. as be etsrted for kitchen, was turprised to hear the dog say: "What's the matter with putting the bill of fare in front of me?" Scarcely knowing what he did,, be held THE 3IEKU IN FROXT OF BEAUTY who sal<1, "Bring me a bowl of broth, and-a bone." The waiter flew into thekiichen believing the devil wa§ after him, but brought back the dinner for the ventriloquist and the broth and."bone fot Beauty. Then besought the--proprietor. Trembling with ex. oltement, he said: -'Come right down into the dining room; there Is the moit retnarkabl* thing there jou ever heard of—a talking dog. You ought to bay him. he would fill the houte." Th*>proprletor;oame down and heard A Klmlng Fair. Hclmagcn, a Roumanian country town of twelve hundred inhabitants, holds its annual fair on the feast of St. Theodore. On this occasion, a London weekly paper says, the place swarms with newly married byides from the sixty to eiffhty villages in the district. Widows who have taken fresh husbands remain at home. The young women, in festive attire and ffenerally attended by their mot.herr-in-law, carry jug-a of wine wreathed with flowers in their hands. They kiss every man they meet and afterward present the jug to his lips fora "nip." Theindivid- ual thus regaled bestows a small gift on the fair Cybele. Xot to take of the proffered wine is regarded as an insult to the young wife and her famify. She is, therefore, reserved toward strangers and only kisses those whom she thinks likely to taste of her wine. The kissing- is carried on everywhere—ia the street, in the taverns acd in private houses. -• "Statron •/ a Benevolent Haunt and knowing the good Dr. Miles' Nervine has dono mo, my wish to help others, overcomes my dlsllko for tho publicity, this letter may givo mo.
