Who Was KissodP
As Anulo was carrying tho baby ono day,
Tossing aloft the lump of luaulty,

To tho rest of the world a mere lump of hu
manity Bam eamo along, and was thinking then, may
Full as much of Anulo as she of tho baby,
"Just look at the baby," cried Ann, lu a nutter,
Giving tho locks round her fingers a twirl;
"If I was a man I know that I couldn't
Ho keeping ray hands olTn dear llttlo girl."
And Sam gave a wink, as If to say "May bo,
Of tho girls I'd rather hug you than the baby !"
"Now kiss it," she cried, still hugging it closer,
"It's mouth like tho roses tho honey bee slpsl"
Sam stooped to obey, and as heads cumo to
gether, There chauced to arise a confusion of Hps !
And, as It occurred, it might have been, may be,
That each got n kiss, Sam, Ann, and the baby I
It's hard to tell what Just then was tho matter,
For tho baby was the only ono innocent there;
And Annie Hushed up llko a full blown peony,
And Samuel turned red to the roots of his
So the question is this you can answer It, may
Did Annie kiss Sam, or did both kiss the baby 7

Notwithstanding tho intimate associ
ation of men anil women slnco tho day
when Adam and Evo founded a colony
on a fruitful llttlo tract of jirc-oraiitetl
land In County Eden, Palestine, tho
ono sex lias over been a mystery to tho
other. Sympathizing with womon.and
understanding them on most -points,
thero lias still remained cortain subllo
ties of character which we, as men,
havo totally failed to comprehend.
Study them as wo may and most ev
ery man is studious in this matter, if
In no other tlicir Inner natures still ro-
main a mystery. It would taUo too
much tltno and spaco to particularize,
but wo will mention a few curious
points of dlffereneo between tho sexes.
Two couples, each composed of man
and woman, passing on tho street, tho
oyea of tho man will Invariably bo
found to flrst rest upon tho woman np
prciichlng. First glanco to boo if ho
knows her. Second, If sho Is protty, and
If sho is, tho glanco is tolerably suro of
being extended to a continuous stare.
He may, If tho lady is not particularly
haudsomo, tako In, with a sort of con
temptuous staro, her inalo escort. Sin
gularly enough, tho observer will no
tlco a surprising agreement of malo and
femalo tastes In this particular. Tho
ladles will bo found to look at each oth
er, instead of at tho gentlemen.
Men who wrlto average novels tales
of tho trials and tribulations of two
fond creatures finally mado happy by
tho inovltablo marriage always ox
haust thoraselvcs In making Inventory
or (no personal charms of tho hcrolno.
Tho air, hair, oyes, mouth, complexion
lect ana hands or tho angel aro elabo
ratoly eulogized, with tho view of ma
king tho reader fall dcsperatoly In lovo
with tho Ideal divinity. Alabaster,
sapphlro, ruby, peach-bloom, ambrosia
and other precious elmllics aro cmbo
rately and lavlehly expended in tho
work of portraying tho personal beauty
of tho precious sho, whoso troubles aro
to bo wept over, and who is to bo tri
umphantly steered, nt last, through all
tho dangers that environ true lovo Into
tho heaven of matrimony. When a
woman writes n novel nnd a great ma
ny do wo observe again n singular co
incidence with mascullno propensities,
from which wo might infer that thoy
aro as much lu lovo with thcmsolvcs as
wo aro. ,S7ie also, llko tho malo animal
Who harrows up our souls exhausts
her descrlptlvo powers hi gloating over
tho beauties of tho heroine.
In nothing do men fall so complctoly
short of a full understanding of women
as lu tho matter of dress and personal
adornment. Whllo their gallantries
nnd deportment aro largely founded on
tho opinions of tlio opposlto sex, they
observo with wonder that women dress
for each other, Tho cntlro mascullno
and tho pulpit forItsmouth-pieces,raay
bo arrayed against ono particular fash
ion, and tho contest is hopeless, so long
as tho beau sex aro themselves satisfied
with It. Outraged good tasto and hygi
enic laws may cry aloud to no avail.
Illdlculo and earnest entreaty aro allko
useless. Fashion U arbitrary, and whllo
women can defy ridicule In men, they
aro keenly ullvo to tho ridicule of their
own sex, mercilessly directed against
all who rebel against tho decrees of tho
But whllo women dross for each oth
er, thero aro cetraln abstruso mystories
of tho toilet designed with express to-
gard to their effect upon malo admi
rers. A fow of theso wo propose to
consider iu our article. Tho dry-goods,
tho ribbons, tho jewels and tho head
gear aro worn with a viow to exciting
tho envy .or admiration of tlicir sisters.
It is only in tlio matter of complexion
that they attack tho other sex.
Thero is nothing in art or naturo
more beautiful than a woman's hair, if
loft in its natural state. But restless
and meddlesomo fashion cannot lot it
alone, Can anything bo moro obsurd,
hideous and uncounfortablo than tho
present stylo of head-dress ? In this
misting, suffocating weather, when per
spiring humanity seems iu Imminent
danger of evaporation, woilndourlady
friends going about with hugo raoun
tains of hemp or hair tied on tho backs
of their heads aud necks, Thero aro
"Japancso switches," with short curls,
rolled around n hot slato pencil, on the
neck, in front of tho ears, and top hair,
burned just enough to roughen It;
"Cliantelaino braids;" frizzed or scram
bled hair hanging In loose masses over
tho shouldcis, and hair in overy possl
plo shapo except that of naturo. A wo
man wearing her own natural hair is a
novelty. No matter how soft and silky
it is sho must roughen it, and causo It
to look ridiculous by crimping. No
matter how much thero is of It sho must
havo more, aud build up fantastic
shapes. A lady with whom we discussed
tlio hair question, and ono to whom na
turo has been moro than ordinarily gen
erous, excused herself for wearing pur
chased hair on tho ground thathcrowu
"wouldn't mako any show." But why
do they want to makoa "show?" Could
v,o bo mado to bellovo that theso hot,
uncomfortable and cumbrous structures
wero composed entirely of natural hair,
growing on tlio head of tho wearer, tho
sizo of tho heap "tho show" mado
would indicaton growth which, if left
looso flowing over tho shoulders, would
drag tho street sixteen feet In tho
Women aro seldom satisfied with tho
form naturo has given them, and aro
continually experimenting with a viow
to improving it. If too fat, sho resorts
to a freo use of acids. If too lean sho
pads. A certain fullness of bust is
deemed Indispensable, and to accom
plish this, various contrivances aro ro-
sorted to. Itaw cotton has tho advan
tage of keeping its place, but Is open to
tho objection of being too hot for mid
summer use. Pads of curled hair aro
popular, tho cafes being mado various
ly, but always with tho outer side ful
ler than thu inner. Sometimes (ho ca
ses aro IiaiuHiinoly trimmed, but It Is
generally brides that indulge in this
freak'. Sonio wire inventions look llko
a bent and twisted Hour sifter, minus
tho frame, but they aro not popular on
account of their liability to bo pushed
out of plaeo by an inadvertent movo
mcnt, sticking out in a curvo which Is
anything but tho lino of beauty. Au
Ingenious invention is a pad.iuado with
a spring In tho ecu tro, designed to yield
on slight pressure. Theso contrivances
aro designed for tlio bewilderment of
tho lady's partner in a waltz, but,
though artfully contrived, it Is not ap
prehended that they aro content to de
ceive tho very elect. Tho required
shapo In tho bustle region is given by
skeleton wires in muslin eases, though
it very common practico Is to tiso news
papers. "What's tho news iu your Ga
zette t" is frequently asked when young
girls aro assembled.
This deadly poison Is extensively
used to impart brilliancy to tho oyes.
It Is sometimes taken internally, but n
less dangerous and moro common modo
Is to apply with a camel's-lmlr brush
to tho skin lu tho outsldo comers of tho
oyes. Tho effect is soon oUcrvablo In a
peculiarly brilliant nnd clear appear-
anco of tlio eye, entirely changing tlio
oxprcssion, Tho Initiated cau tell n

uso of this deadly agent produces seri
ous consequences. When not undor Its
Influence tho eyo Is dull, lustcrlcss and
flshy In oppeaianco, and In somo In
stances partial or total blindness oc
curs. Tho number of ladloj given to tho
habitual uso of belladonna Is much
greater than wo would suppose Tho
operation Is conducted with great secre
cy, as a general thing, but children do
tect their older slstors In Its uso, and, as
tnoy grow up.tako to tho practico them
solves. Young men paying attention to
somo particular lady, with ft viow to
matrimony havo often boon puzzled to
account for tho various phases of tho oyes
they worship, Thoy find them uniform-1
ly brilliant In socIoty,but an unexpected
call sometimes catches tho nngol una
wares, with oyes almost fishy In their
lackluster want of. their accustomed
stimulus. After marrlago nn accidental
rummaging of tho lady's bureau nnd
tho discovery of tho mysterious llttlo
brush and tho belladonna vial, lets a
flood of light in upon his bowlldorcd
India Ink enters largely Into tho ma
king up of a fashionable lady. Tho
brows and lashca'aro penciled with It,
and frequently a tiny horizontal mark,
on tho corner of tho eye, Is found vory
effective In producing tho desired ap
pearance. Tho work requires to bo or-
tlstlcally dono, as a bungler not only
falls to Improvo her appearance, but
succeeds In making herself hideous. Tho
practico of penciling is harmless, and
thero Is no good reason why It should
not bo Indulged in nt discretion.
Tho uso of arsenic as a beautiflcr pre
vails to a greater extent than Is gener
ally suspected. It Is taken internally,
and Imparts a whiteness and clearness
to tho skin which Is coveted. Tho prac
tico is carried on secretly. As it is dif
ficult to get arsenic except on prescrip
tion, and its uso by inexperienced par
ties Is excessively dangerous, most la
dies tako it through tho connivance of
tho family physician. Fowler's solution
or Donovan's is tlio usual shapo In
which It Is administered. Tho patieet
who is ambitious of rivaling tho beau
tiful snow in tho whiteness of her skin
complains of imaginary eruptions, and
thinks sho needs an alterative A lady
friend of hers was nlllictcd in tho same
way, and her physician gavo her arso
nic, which curod her. The dlscrcot phy
sician takes tho hint and prescribes ac
cordingly. It is n pleasant little farco,
which both feo through. Somo girls,
who nro not up to tlio prescription dodgo
chew card board or heavily enameled
paper, in .tlio manufacture of which
arsenic is used. This practice is infinite
ly worso than taking the stuff. Arsenic
is a cumulative poison, and its contin
ued uso results in tho most disastrous
consequences. It invariably kills, soon
er or later, unless tho habit is aband
oned, nnd once established it holds the
victim as tightly ns whisky or tobacco.
Wo ouco know a lady who laid great
stress on tho matter of complexion, and
sho was in tho habit of taking, tho
night beforo any social event in which
sho was to participate transpired, a
heavy doso of somo drastic medicine,
that sho might appear on tho sccno
palo and interesting. It was a very
gay and festive season, and alio barely
managed to live through it.
Tho various paints, washes and pow
ders aro too well known to need des
cription. Some, as the rico and chalk
powders, aro comparatively harmless,
while many aro composed of lead, bis

lysis, blindness ond sometimes death.
Carmine in solution penetrates thoskin
so that It has to wear off, and henco Is

From tho Chicago Times.
Tho views of General Grant on tho
conduct of tho European war nro some
thing which all tho world has nn inter
est In knowing. Tho enterprise of tho'
Times was exhibited during tho lato
visit of his Excellency, by obtaining,
nt somo length, tho General's opinion
of matters on tho Rhenish frontier.
Tho Genoral, in response to n ques
tion ps to his opinion of matters be
tween France and Prussia, said that
neither party understood war as ho un
Hero tho reporter of tlio Himes ven
tured to assert a cordial Indorsement of
tho remark of his Excellency.
"Permit mo, General," said Mr.
Scammon, "to ask you to point out
what you concolvo to bo tho chief blun
ders of tho campaigns thus far ?"
"Franco," said tho General, as ho
lighted a fresh cigar, "mado a blunder
in commencing war upon a people of
equal sizo aud strength. Tho true way
to mako war is to always havo three to
your eueray'a ono. An Illustration of
tbo fact was given at Shlloh, Tho ene
my thero was within a third as largo as
my own force. Hence, tho disaster
which befel mo."
"But, General," said tho reporter,
"havo you no faith In manoouvering or
in strategy, whereby inferiority in
point of numbers can bo equalized by
superiority of brains ?"
"Nona whatovor. Sherman played
that out in his march to tho sea. You
see, tho Confederacy was only a shell,
and that is why he met with such suc
cess. Ho had no opposition. My own
experlenco proves this. In all cases
whero I attempted any of theso new
fangled operations, I was beaten."
Hero Mr. Colfax, with a very sweet
smllo inquired as to what tho General
thought should bo dono by Napoleon.
"My Idea," said tho General, "Is that
ho should got Butler and Banks to com
mand army corps In tho Prussian forces
Then ho should conscript overy French
man that can carry a musket, and send
him iu. Prussia has only 30,000,000 in
habitants, whilo Franco has 10,000,000.
This 13 a clear differenco in favor of
Franco of 10,000,000. Now let Napo
teon keep hammering away at tho Prus
sians, if It takes all summer. I am of
tho opinion that tho superior activity
of tho French, aided by their chassepot
their clan, their traditions, and their
suporior navy, will cnablo them to kill
a Prussian as often as they can a French
man. Henco it Is a clear case that if
Napoleon hammers away till all tho
Prussians aro killed off ho will havo
10,000,000 left. In other words, his cat's
tall is tho loncest."
"What is your opinion of Napoleon
personally?" asked Mr. Joseph Mo-

"Well, now, Genoral, tell us what

"Don't llko 'em," ho responded, sen-
"Why not, your Excellency ?"
"Well, I don't. They want office too

on Prussian strategy. Ho did not Iiko

month thoy havo hardly a million men

ho said, than ho required to movo his
army from Fort Henry to Donelson a
dlstanco of onln thirty miles. This ce
lerity, ho remarked, Is destructlvo .of
all precedent. Tho Prussians havo

movo n blunder. In placo of going to
ward Paris by way of Mctz, they ought
to cross tho James river and go round
by way of Petersburg. Thero aro nei
ther dignity nor sexiso in this way of
rushing straight nt Paris with a big ar

hold on and see who Is going to bo tho
next President. This making war for
war's sake, was not, in his opinion, tho
truo principle of warfaro. All wars
should havo the high and beautiful ob
ject of returning the men of ouo'sparty
to Congress, and tho election of one's
candidate to tho Presidency.

I saw tho salo of a family last weok
for dobt, whllo tho husband and father
was in California; and perhaps I cannot
do better than tell you nbout It. Thero
wero fivo chlldrcn-thrco girls nnd two
boys. Wo had passed them throo timo
In our chairs during tlio day as thoy
stood besido tlio road dressed in their
holiday ultlro of black. Tho silence
they observed whenever any person
passed, nnd their downcast looks, crea
ted curiosity on our part to know their
business there. Arr Hung, our waiter,
was called up and asked tho causo of
this llttlo parade. "Why," said he,
"tho girls, and perhaps tho wholo fami
ly aro for sale." Wo stopped our chain
and stepped out to havo a talk with
them, using Arr Hung as Interpreter.
Tho mother was wrinkled and gray,
and hung her head as If sho wero afraid
to look us in tho face. But tho children,
with tho exception of tho oldest girl,
looked cheerful, and wero quite pleased
with their holiday attiro. Tho oldest
girl was sixteen and tho oldest boy fif
teen. So said the gruff old broker who
had tho party in charge, and -who
iciinetl quite anxious to dispose of his
wares. After a great deal of quizzing
and evasivo auswera, tho broker told
us that the husband aud father was in
California and had neglected to pay his
note given for Ids passage, and that his
family wero now offered fur salo to pay
tho debt. Ho hoped to bo able to pay
tho debt with tlio salo of tho two oldest
girls, but as yet had received no offers.
Ho said that tho family became securi
ty voluntarily, and ho never know of a
case whero they did not voluntarily of-
for themselves for salo if tho note they
secured was not paid. In reply to our
questions ho said that when a customer
bought a child or person, tho person
was made at once tho owner of thochlld
body and soul. No Chinaman would
disputo tho purchaser's right to do aa
ho pleases with tho human being he had
paid for. Tho boys would mako good
servants, ho said, and in tho courso of a
few years bo worth a fortune to tho
owner. Tho girls would mako cood
"armers" (or nur.ses, as they aro called
in America.) Ho would show us their
physical beauty would mako them
sing and play tricks if wo thought of
buying. How much would wo give?
Tho oldest girl ho would sell for $100;
the next ono for $200, and tho llttlo six
year old for fifty. Tho boya ho could
not sell until tho girls wero disposed of.
Wo thought tho prico too high. The
market was glutted with saleablo girls,
and ho must not think of getting over
5100 for tho oldest and handsomest, whilo
for tho llttlo ono ho must not oxpect
moro than $10. Ho sneered at thal.and
said that Englishmen always talked In .
that way when thoy wanted to buy.
Whilo wo wero talking, apartyofbluo
robed Chineso aristocrats catno up and
begun to inspect tho family, they opened
tho mouth of tho oldest girl, rapped on
her teeth to seo if thoy wero sound,
thumped her ribs, laughed at her llttlo
feet, told her to show tho whites of her
oyes, ordered her to sing and to show
them tho trinkets which tho mother
had given her as parting gift. All til l
whilo tho salesman kept up n constant
j lbber, in which wo took no interest.
Tnro pressing, wo passed on, leaving
tlio parlies disputing about tho prie-,
and discussing tho probabilities of thoir
running away if taken to Hong Kong.
Alter mauing our call, wo returned the
snmo way to ascertain tho result of tlio
salo. Only tho mother mid tho hoys
n cro left. Tho debt was only $300, and
$50 of it still remained unpaid. I huvo
been often told by residents In China
that tho parents would us soon tell their
children as a cow or pig. And I had
begun to bellovo that .such was tho ru-o
upon passing tho group tho first tim.
But tho scene had changed. Tho girls
were gone, uud now n boy must goalv..
Tho mother sat In tho dirt, with her
arms around tho youngest, walling lu
a most piteous manner, and, as Arr
Hung said, cursing tho men that sold
her husband a ticket to America at
$300, which cost them but $10. Tie
broker sat listlessly by, fmoklng his
plpo and twirling his cane, lookingns if
it was tho fninlkfct matter of busino-H
with him. Tho boys were crying, and
seemed very much afraid of us, now It
wus curium mat ono oi mom must go.
But wo parsed on, nnd loftlhcmin flu lr
misery. Wo never know whether tho
boy was sold to a childless man, to l.o
treated ns a son, ton Porlugueso to bn
earrifd to tho West Indies, under a
nominal contract, or to a natlvo land
owner, to btcomo his slave. But that
ono of them was sold Into servitudo fur
tho turn of $50 thero can bo no doubi ;
Tho girls wero doubtless purchased for
tho vilest purposes, unless thoy had tho
rare luok to fall Into tho bauds of t-omo
native in search of a legitimate wife. I
am told that tho prico of girls has gono
up within a few months, oiving perhaps
to tho fact Hint a less number of emi
grants hnvo forfeited their bond In Cal
ifornia than was tho ca.co tlx months
ago. I was shown four bright, plump,
rosy appearing girls yesterday, who
wero purchased less than n year ago, tho
whole lot for $S0. Now they will fell
readily for $300 each, 77oir7 Kono Cor
