John Scan, UTAH. A GOVERNMENT PROBLEM OF TWENTY-FIVE YEARS STAND ING, AND STILL UNSOLVED. THE (iE.NTU.es STILL UNHAPPY. 'J'bu editor of tlio f'ltilaildiibia Rec ord has flail a blank cartridge at Moimonism. II ih i iu J mtiun reads well, but he Btiggi'Htd no remedy. Read what bo nays : In ntU'iniitiiiL' to 8iiiiprc38 Mormon- im on the ai.count ot tlio tixiMtence ol liolynamy in Vlnb, Now Mexico, Wy oming and t'lHowhei'u iu tlio great I'ur Went tlio Civil (iovornnient is brotiL'bt lace to litce with the momentous prob lem ol 'ccclcsiiuttu ul utithonty and tbe rights ot conscience. However patent ly immoral or essentially irreligious this inatitiilion ot'pluritl murringes may tie in onr concepiitin til' it, there can bo no doubt of the ginoerity of the real ninhs of the iiiii-uided pooplo who adhere to it. Apurl from Ibis iimliiulioii, it must !c conceded that -McirmiHiiHiii h.m a riht not only to tolertitioii lint to Tirntoftion, t ith tbo subject of primary and paramount al legiance to rpirilual authority, no mat ter how imperions its claims may be, neither the Statejior the I'nion has any warrant, in either written or unwrit- law, to interfere. Government, Local or National, ct.n properly deal only with practical results. Actual lull-actions of tbo regulations it estab lishes for tho pence and order of soci. ely and inr tbe security of the individ ual may bo punished, but tlio civil power can rightfully wnj,'0 no crusade upon mere principles, tiowover mis chievous in their tendencies and how ever menancinpr by reason of being thoroughly syslomattzcdund organized. It litiwl wait lor some overt act. There can be no persecution for opinions. Kven the worst intentions nro not pun ishable unless accompanied by aoiuo attempt to execute them. Our law of conspiracy is cavctully guarded against abuse in tho hands of tbo magistracy, anusomeluing must bo done in pur suance of an unlawful combination bo fore its participants become indictable. Section 3 ot tbo fourth article of the federal Constitution ompowors Con gress to "make all needful rules and regulations respecting tbo territory or oilier property belonging to the United states:' aim section 4 ol tlio same ar tide prescribes that "tho United States shall guarantee toevery Stato a Itepub bean lorm ol Government. The first of tho ten amendments, which became operative almostconcurrentlv with the adoption of the Constitution, declares that "Congress hIiuII make no law re specting an establishment ol religion or prohibiting the free exercise thero- of." A thoughtful consideration of tlio scopo and import ol tbeso features oi tno organic law ot tho l.iuon can hardly lull to emphasize tho difficulties and doubts which environ tho wholo .Mormon question. Tho Territorial "rules and regulations" must not be such as to coutravone religious frue- dom. Nor can conditions iiivolvini! such interference bo justly aflixed to tbo admission ot new states framed from tho Terrilorios, provided tho plnn ol liovernnient proposed lie Kepubli- can in form. It is a manifest nelilio prineivii to aver that any specified system ol belief and practice touching religious matters, no matter bow monstrous or absurd, is in tact irreligious, and therefore not entitled to "true eiercise" as a religion. The adoption hy the civil authority ot of such a censorship of creeds would be a direct step toward, a religious "establishment." It would bo to in- slilti to a religious test at once. Criteria of this sort may ho formulated by a Church, but not by the United Slates. The attitude ot tho American polity is one of entire impartiality, and indeed neutrality, toward all professedly re ligious sects. It does not undertake to define what religion is, nor to mark the boundaries beyond which lies irro ligion. Tho rights of cotiBciunce and the liberty ot opinion belong aliko to the Catholic and those representatives ot tho poles of religious thought, the Agnostic, (.linstian, Jew ana ileist are equal in tho presence ot our public law. iietween I'.piscopuhan, i'rcxtiy teiinn, Baptist, .Methodist, Unitarian ana uuaker tho iVation makes nodil fcrcnee, tbosgh the Stale may thus discriminate if a sufficient majority of its voters so ortlain. A limitation, dis sent and negation as to tho dogmas of theology stand upon the same piano, An cnliro divestiiuro of failh, a com- pleto denial of the sacerdotal, can bo nut under Federal outlawry no more than orthodoxy ot tlio mostpronounced and conservative description. As women, by somo strango and per- vorso fatality, is in ono way or another at tno nollom ot all tho troublo in tho world, so in this Mormon imbroglio tno Kernel ol tbo controversy is tho question of wives. This tho Stato has aa undoubted right lo regulato; but it is a moot point whether such power ran no constitutionally exercised hy tno general Uovcrnmctit. W ives are good thing, and vert' bandy to have about tho house : but there may bo too much ol a good thing. In none of he llnrly co-lit Mutes ol the Union is any male person allowed more than ono wife at a time. All without cx ecplion, have statutes against bigamy. n ore u not lor the notable tact that a great many mon tlo not marry at all. and havo no desiro oven lor so much as one wife, it might be suspected tbat nvy nan something to do with tbo urrent uncharitable feeltna toward tbe many-spotiBod Latter- Day Saints. Asa consideration of natural olhics, usiraelly flowed, anil without regard ecclesiastical ordinance or civic statutes, a good deal may be said in lavor either ul single or plural matri mony. The circumstance that in civ ilised countriua tbe number ol mon is about equal lo that ol women might be taken as an argument from Nature CLEARFIELD, in ho half of tho one wile plan, wero it not for tho pur.iling fact that whero the patriarchal system has been in vogue tbo female sox preponderate ; tho supply iu each case thus answering tho demand. This interesting problem of sociology may bo loll to the evolu tionists to solvo. The polygamist can claim that the Lovilical luw, which tho leading Cliristain denominations have adopted lrom Judaism, does not pro hibit a plurality of wives. It may ho furthermore allegod against monogamy that it is almost universally supple mented by tho social evil. An apology for tho temporizing courso ol tho Government toward Mormonism lor tho last quarter of a contury may bo roniid in tho intrinsic difficulty of tho question. Polygamy is as knotty as it is naughty. A bill of indictment cannot bo framed to in cludo au ontiro community. Prosecu tions ot Individual polygamisls fail through defect of necessary legal evi dence or from the refusal of juries to convict. For this it is not easy to do viso a remedy. The timo is coming whon something decisivo will havo to be done ; but what that something is no statesmanship has v'ct been able to discover. Mcunwhilo Mormonism marches on, and fixes its hold more strongly with the lnpso of every hour upon vast tracts ol our domain. "CHEEK" AAV "CMC." While a cortnin amount of cheek as as well as chic is ossential to success, particularly in tbe lino of tho profes sions, it may bo questioned whether tho assumption ol ability or knowl- edgo is not occasionally carried so far as to react disastrously upon the pros pects of a young man's career. It is true that merit does not always meet with recognition, ar.d that tbo public will not invuriahly find out thoso who can best render tho vunoiiu kinds ol service which men have occasion to seek lrom their fellows. Modesty may bo too extreme, and be who has an ex cess of it often stands in his own light. Since there is no inherent force in the laculty or attainment that constitutes litness for a Hpecial work to bring such work and tho woikman by somo oc cult reciprocal attraction together, there must usually bo a blowing of the trumpet in order to adviso tho world whero to look in any particular case for tho needed man. This blowing, however, is a delicate and exceedingly hazardous resort when tho man under takes to do it in his own behalf llirect sell-praise is universally doomed in tho highest degroo undignified and inde corous. A really proud and high-sonl-ed man shrinks from anything ap proaching it. ISoasting, even by im plication, is repugnant to genuine self respect, and tho spirit which induces an indulgence in it is very fur from tho temper of true self-assertion. It be trays, morcovor, a lack ol senso. Men take it everywhere as a badgo of weak ness as well as of tolly. It acts as a boomerang upon its purpose, begets distrust and establishes a presumption against tho uttoror tbat it Is exceed ingly difficult, although ho may in fact bo an nblo mon, to entirely overcome. This is especially true as applied to professional mon. There is no im propriety whatever in a mau's staling that ho is a good liorseshocr, u good driver, or an expert woodsawyor or bootblack, provided he tolls the truth in saying so. But what would bo thought of a person who should ullego ol bimsclt that he was an able lawyer, a superior physician or an eloquent preacher l So lar as tho medical pro. tension is concerned, it is, indeed, a dis tinctive point of its ethics not even to advertise in tbo newspapers. Special ists do this sometimes, and lor that very reason they oro lrcniiently mis taken for quacks. The lawyer hangs out his banner on tho outer wall of his ofilco in the shapo of a sign annoiiuc ing his name and calling, and he mat- go so. far as to put a card to the same oltect in some journal ; but tho clo. gy man very seldom does so much as that. Tbo very namo pretender has bo- como the synonym ot a humbug. It carries the idea ot falsity. There are other kinds of pretence than bald, out right sell laudation, shallow and hail taught intruders into the hiL'licr voca lions of lilo are rarely at a loss for methods of pushing their claims for notice. A temporary success may be won in this way now and then, but it soon comes to an ignoble end. If person ot this sort happens to be a lawyer ho is ready for the most part to answer oil-hand tbe proloundost and most complex questions in jiinsnru donee. lie will never tell you be does not know. A thorough master of tho law is apt, on tho other band, to re servo his decision on tho simplest point inai may tie propounded to liim, and to first verify his opinion by recurring to the authorities before announcing it. Tho young lawyer olten marvels at the dullness of the Judgo who takes several weeks lo decide a perfectly plain case, when for himsolt tivo min utes would be enough. It is thu suinn way not infroiiuenlly with the medical student in regard to his professors, and in tho theological seminaries there aro scores of fresh young men who clearly comprehend tbo atonement, jttstiflca tion by litith, predestination and free will, tho problem of tho origin of evil, and ail tno oilier doctrines and mys teries that eminont divines havo res tied with for tho last 18(10 years. If tho community is to be disappoint ed in a man it would see in to need no argument to show that it would be a great deal better for him for tho dis covery to bo mado that he amounts lo moro than ho was at first luken for instead of less.

PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN. PA., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1881. A rillLADELMIii COOKERY Tho Philadelphia) Times mentions tho Cooking school lately started in that city : 4 Mrs. S. T. Horor, toucher of tho Js'ow Century Cooking school, gavo a practi cal exhibition before a largo audience, principally of mature housekeepers, at tho Spring Garden institute, of the advantages ol systoinatio culinary work. Ik'foiutbe neatly-tUtirod blondo lady and her rosy-chsaked auxiliary mado thoir appearento, Mr. A. M. Spanglcr delivered an amusing and at the sumo timo instructive discourso on tho work of skillful and unskilllul housekeepers, When bo concluded ono of his sullies amid :bo applauso of bis hearers, Mrs. lioror. whiie-upronod and whito-capped, stoppjd briskly for ward, along with the ."'iplo-cheekod yonn; assistant before Tfier.tloncd, and settled right down tobusincht in amat- ter-ol lact way. airs. Jtorer rcmarKca: "it ivas tonir ago said, 'Let mo make the songs of a nation and I care not who nakes its laws.' Wo say in thoso modcri times. Let us make tho cooks of a nulon and wo care not who makes its apttbeca- rics. bbo said thai perhaps ai many men wero driven lo tho dramsiop by tho want of good living as (ran nuy other cause. "If we wish to keep tho man from tho dramshoj and tho woman of the liouso Iron kill ing herself with opium and cllorul, wo must teach ber such ways o' pro paring food as will mako it palatible." What Mrs. lioror proposod to thow by demonstration was the preparaion, at prices as low us possible, of ktteles Iroiu inexpensive tnatetmls as wej as those ot u higher cost. Mr. Spanjler hero remarked that tho ultimato ohoct was tho starting ot a class in the iisti- Lulo building or somo other placi, to havo evening schools at a lower pice I nun mo tiirard street school, tbo oxpenso would bo five dollars an e'en- ing lor tbo wholo, and tho moro lhat joined the chcapor it would ha for each. Mrs. Itorer then procooded will tho practical part ol her lecture. There was a handsome gas stove in tho fore ground, closo by tho Btovo a table upon which Iho materials were miigled lor the various dishes, and in the lack ground was a blackboard, givinp tho proportions for each of the following viands: Soup stock, pressed meas for soup, bread mutton chops, potatopuirs, snow pudding, bread, and two wtys ol making, coffee. Tho last nainec she explained hy using tho French per colating process and tho old-faslioned method of boiling. Tho produits of these two systems were handed around among tho audience, and tho general verdict was in lavor of the Flench plan. When Mrs. lioror was cmphamzing tno necessity ol bay loaves in the soup a slock man aroso and inquired what they wero. llo bad nover seen them and presumed many others had not. Mrs. Itorer said they decorated figs. Tboy could bo bought inthosloros, and a half pound, worth fourteen cents, would last lour years. Two leave wore to be used at a time. Hoto books wero in requisition, buttho trouble ap peared to bo that the lecturess spoke loo rapidly. W hen it oamo to frying mutton chops sho gave tho advice : "Always suvo every litllo particloof bread loll lrom tho table, Uuvo a box to keep it in.

HOW SOME OP THE POOR VICTIMS LIVE UNTIL llllIV'KN TO AlAUNEBS AND TO DEATH, A writer in tho London Standard says : Un his arrival tho prisoner is dnvon straight to the police ward, where ho is inspected hy tho Ispravnik, a polico ollicer who is absolute lord and master ol tho district. Ibis represen tutivo of tho government requires him to answer the lidlowingqiiestions : His name ? How old ? Married or single f w hero Horn I Address ol parents, or relations, or menus r Answers to all which are entered in the books. A solemn written promise is then exaotcd of him that ho will not givo cssons of any kind, or try to teach any ono ; that every letter ho writes will go through tho Ispravnik s bands, and lhat he will follow no occupation ex cept slioeniaking, carpentering or field labor, llo is then told hois Iroel but at the same time is solemnly warn ed that should ho attempt to pass the limits of tho town ho shall bo (hot down like a dog rather than Ifo allowed to escape, and should ho be taken alivo shall bo sent off to Knslern Siberia without lurthor formality than that of the lspravnik's personal order. I he poor fellow takes his little bun dle, and, fully realising tbat ho bus now bidden larewcu lo tno culture and material comfort of his past life, ho walks out into tho cheerless street. A group of exiles, all pale and omaeialod, aro there to greet him, take him to somo of their miserable lodgings, and feverishly demand news lrom homo, Tho new comer gates on them as ono in a dream, some aro melancholy mad, others nervously irritable, and the re mainder have evidently tried to And solace in drink. They live in commu nities of two and threes, have food, a scanty provision of clothes, money, and books in common, and consider it their sacred duly to help each other in ovor)' emergency, wilhoot distinction of sex, rank or age. The nobis by birth gel sixteen shillings a month lrom the gov- ernment for their maintenance and commoners only ten, although many of thorn arc married, and sent into exilo with young families. Daily a gen darmo visils their lodings, inspects the premises when and how ho pleases, and now and then makes somo-mystcrious entry in his note book. Should any of iticir numoor carry a warm dinner, a pair of newly-mended boots.or a chango of linen to somo passing exilo lodged for tho momont in tho polico ward, it is just as likely as not marked nirainst him as a crime. It is a crime to come and sco a friend off, or accompany him a littlo on tho way. In fact should tho Ispravnik tool out ot sorts tho effects of cards or drink he votos his bad temper on tho exiles ; and aB cards and drink aro tho favorito amusements in thcBO dreary regions crimes are mark ed do,wn against tho exiles in astonish r.ig numbers, and a report of thorn sent regularly to tho govornor of tho pro vince.

I hoy begin to quarrel, and oven lo hate each other. Some of thorn con trive to forge false passports, and by a miraclo, as it wore, make thoir escupo, but the groat majority of thoso victims ol tho Third Soclion cither go mad, commit suicide, or dio of delirium tre mens, their history, when tho timo comes for it to be studied and publish ed, will disclose a torriblo talo ol human suffering and adminlsteiiul ovils and shortcomings not likely to find their equivalent in contemporary history of any other European Stato MORE COUA' TO THE ACRE. Tho farmers in tho Middlo and At lantlo States, says tho Germantown Telegraph, aro beginning to study out tho expediency of raising morocoreals to the aero than tboy havo borotoforo boon doing. They soo vory clearly that it can be done, and in the case ol maize or Indian corn, especially so. It is true lhat tho labor bestowed will be somewhat greater; but when they con sider that a vory largo portion of this labor is done with machinery, it does not present tho snmo drawback that it did lormorly. Besides, thoro is no crop that shows tho benefit of good culture so much as corn. H cannot stand well iu its own dolence against tho rapid growth of a multitude of greedy, rampant weeds ; hence its gratiludo when tlio invading enemies aro thrust out, and it is allowed to go on us way rejoicing. In referring to a heavy yield of corn growa by Xathan (i. Pierco, in Mary land, during tbe year just closod, ho furnishes for publication tho statement that one hundred and ten bushels wero tho product por aero, or rather that number of bushels, allowing seventy tivo pounds of ears to equal one bushel of shelled corn. But to remove ull causes for cavil, he sets down tho not yield, notwithstanding this allowance, ut ono hundred bushels per acre. This seems to bo a liberal ostimato, and farmers in general will no doubt admit it to bo so. Ilis modo of culture is to plow tho ground, which was a gravelly loam, about tho firHt of May, harrow it in the usual manner, and treat it to nine hundred pounds of a standard fer tilizer por aero ; again well-harrow tho land, make the rows three feet apart, then a "small amount" of fertilizer scattered in each row, and on May 10 drop three grains of corn (tho Lost Nation variety) two feet apart iu the rows ; cultivate and hoo tho crop four times, cutting out ono of tho three plants and removing all tho suckers and weeds until tho timo arrives for cutting and removing to tho barn for husking, Vc- Tbis ib only what every good farmer ought to bestow upon a crop of corn. There is nothing out of tho way about it At all ; henco, thoro is no lust reason, with an ordinarily favorable season, that tho result should not be the same, in tho production ol the crop generally. now to has thermom eters. "Old Weathercock" writes to tho St. Paul Pioneer-Prat : "There seems to be so many erroneous notices among the amateur meteorologists ot tho city about minimum temporntiiro of the twenty lour hours, and how to obtain it correctly, that a few lines lrom an 'old woathorcock,' I trust, will not bo altogether lost. In the nrst place, then tho temperature of tho wall of any hour of Iho night or day, is not the true temperature of the circulating air and is ot no tiso to science. A wood wall radiates its heat moro rapidly than a brick or a stone, and tho amateur scientist who hangs his thermometer on a wood wall can force bis mercury down below tho amateur who selects a brick wall. Tho proper way to ex- posoyotir thermometer is to surround it with a light wood frame covered with slats, liko shutter work, and roof cd over. This will protect it from tho direct rays ot tho sun and reflected heat. Kun a light wood bar across the centre of your instrument shelter, to which you can attach thermometers, which should be, when properly ex posed on tbo north side ol tho building, and tho thermometer at least one foot from all objects. II these directions aro followed, erroneous reports of ex tromo cold weather will not find thoir way into print so often.

"Woll, then why not marry ber?'' "Uecauso," replied Wesley "because, my friend, the Lord can livo with a great many poopio mat you and i ran l. It was in a restaurant the other night that a waiter was apologising fur the dilapidated stato of his napkin. "Don't mention it," responded tho cus tomer, sadly. "1 don't mind tho boles in tho least. That part of your napkin is always sure to bo clean." And for tho next ten minutes nothing could be heard but the butter combing its hair out in the pantry. A bashful young clergyman, rising to preach for the first time, announced bis text in thiswise; "And Immedi ately the cork wept and Petor went out and crew bitterly." NEW XEW RAILROAD DEPOT.

Tbe stylo of tho architecture is Gothic and the material entering into tho con struction of tho outer walls pressed brick, ornamental brick and terra cotta tho latter furnished by tho Perth Amboy Terra Cotta Company, and of a color similar to fire brick. The tiso of terra cotta will admit of a great deal of simple ornamentation in tho columns and tho different floors will bo marked by lines of fancy brick, Tho first floor will be occupied by tho inward and outward baggage rooms, and tho ticket offices, of which there will bo two, ontirely distinct from each other ono for local and the otbor for through passongors an ar rangement that will materially shorten tho delays ol local passengers, who aro generally in search ot information both as to routes and timo. highly four feet of tho width of tbo building will be given to throo passage woys, two twenty loot wide and ono twenty lour feet. Passengers arriving in car riages will drivo directly into tlio build ing, and alight in front of tho stair way leading to the waiting rooms ou tho secontl floor. Tboy will procure thoir tickets and tho baggago will bo deposited in tbo baggage room at tho corner of Fifteenth and Filbert streets, which will bn arranged so as to bo ap proached from throo sides. Two stair ways, eleven feet wide, will lead to tbo second floor, but two elevators will be running constantly to accnininoduto thoso who find even a single short flight of stairs too much. Tho lower story will be sixteon feet high. Arriv ing passengers will leave the station on tho opposite side, descending to the I street by u singlo broad flight of stairs into a lobby thirty foot by thirty-two, from which they will reach Merrick street through tho southern entrance. Tho two stairways, divided by tho ticket ollico, converge at a landing half way up, and lend to the general waiting-room, through which all pas songors will pass ou their way to tho trains. This is a spacious room 51 feet in width by 80 in longth, with a lolly ceiling ot glass, tho altitude of the room being 44 feet. An abrupt turn to tno leu on entering tbo general waiting room will conduct ladies lo tho ladies waitine-room which, with the dining-room will oc cupy the entire tront of the second floor. Tho ladies room is of tho sumo length ns tho general waiting-room but zuiect in width, with a private room opening out of it on the Filbort street corder, 2uxlC. Adoor from the ladies' room leads lo the dinintr-room which is of tho same width and only eight leet shorter than the general waiting room. Entrance to thedining room win do had trom tho general waiting-room through tho restaurant at tho lurthor end, opposite tho main entrance. In tho rostaurant, 23 feet wido by 01 long, will bo a lunch conn tcr, with small tables opposite. Tho news stand and telegraph ofilco will be on either side ol the entrance. Tho height of the second story is 31 feet, the general waiting-room being two stories in height. Tbo third and lourth stories will bo mainly devoted to the offices necessary for tho Confpanr'e officials, and they will bo reached by a ganery running around tho waiting room. Tho kitchen will, however, oc cupy a large part of the spaco towards Market Btreet, and a private elevator win connect it with tho ground floor. Hack of tho restaurant will bo a lartro barber shop, 17x31 feet, and ovor that will bo halh-rooms, where passengers win una an me conveniences ot a room in uny hotel, and will thus ho spared the inconvenience ofgoingtoany hotel for no other purpose tipin to take a bath and make a chango of clothes. Over tlio restaurant will bo private uining-rooms. Four entrances with wide doors will afford tho means of communication with Ihotrainshed, tho lobby between tbo doors and tho gates being forty leol. An ornamental iron bridge across Filtcenth street will mnrk the head of the train houso, and tho rear end ot tho trains will como lo tho east ern line of tho street. Tho train shod itself will bo somewhat liko that of West Philadelphia, with eight tracks, but closo together undor one roof with two urches. Tha shod extends one square from Fifteenth to Sixteenth stroet.aud tho walls aro fifteen feet high. The exterior of the shed will bo faced brick, but tho interior will bo finished with ornamental brick. Tho plans drawn for tho station wore designed by Wilson llros.

The cost will be about a quarter of a million, cxclusivo of tho ground. It is probable that tho 1st of May will see the work completed. MOUNT VERNON. While every American has heard of Mount Vernon, probably not ono in a hundred knows whence it derived the namo. J heunlorttinato uukool lion- moulli had a privato Secretary named Vernon, a prudent, sensible man of business, who, alter the Duke's death, found favor in influential quarters, and under William 111. became Secretary of Slate, llo left a son, Edward, born lC8t, who, greatly against his lather's wishes, entered tho Navy, and, serving ilh early distinction, rose to tho ran of Admiral. In 1722 ha was re turned to tho House ol Commons, and having, in July, 1739, declared there the Perto Ucllo might be reduced with six soil of tho lino, and that be would stake bis lilo and reputation on the success of the expedition, ho was sent off with a squadron to do it, succcdrd, and gave his men 110,000, which had just arrived to pay the Spanish troops. On returning home, he received the thanks ol both Houses and the free dom of tha City ol London. From tbat day, however, his star declined. An expedition to Carthagena, made two years later, slgnslly failed. Rmol. LICAN. TEEMS $2 per annum in Advance.

HANGING FURNITURE. Men laugh at their wives if they display a tendency to movo tho furni ture about ut intervals, making a radi cal change iu the appearance of a familiar room ; but tho impulse is a natural ono. A distinguished physi cian has said that 'it is wise and whijlo some to break the uniformity of decora tion from limo to timo, however simple it may bo ; it is wholesome not less to tho hotly than to tho mind.' A woman passes so much of her timo in tho houso, sho needs tho harmless stimulus dorived from these slight changes. Thoro is a relief to her mind from the monotony of her daily round of sweeping, baking, dish-wash- ing, etc. e rejoice in tbo impetus winch decorativo art has received and which makes itself felt in tho most modest household, if nothing more than the variety and beauty of dishes. It is suggestive and pleasing to put a Cinto butter plato in tho shapo of a green leaf or a pansy at each plate and to put cheese and pickets ou the pretty majolica plates lfffido especially for them and to adorn tho table wilb tho flower decorated dishes which arc dainty enough for a King and cheap enough for ulmost anybody. It is a fact easily vciilied that it docs not tire ono holt so much to wash, wipe nnd put away a wholo China tea set as it docs to treat in the same way halt tbo ntimlaM' ol common 'every day dishes. Anything which makes a woman's work pleasant helps her in its perform ance. How OiMLM is Made. A letter from Uindoostan savs that opium, which is there made, is received from that poo plo.
