What tho IJIrl. (Should l.rarn.
By all moans let the girls learn how
to cook. What right has a girl to
marry and go into a house of her own
nnless she knows how to superintend
evory branch of lions okoeping, and sho
aanuot properly snporintend unless she
has somo practical knowledge of her
self. Most men marry without thinking
whether the woman of his choice is
capable of cooking him a meal, and it
is a pity he is so shortsighted, as bis
health, bis cheerfulness, and indeed his
success in life depend In a very great
degree npon tho kind of food bo eats'-
in fact tho whole housohold is influenced
by their diet. Feed them on fried
cakes, fried meats, hot bread and other
indigestible viands, day after day, und
they will need medicine to make them
well. A man will take alcohol to conn
teraot tho evil effects of such food, and
the wife and children must be physicked.
Let all the girls have a share in the
housekeeping at home before thoy
marry; let each superintend somo de
partment by turns. It need not occupy
half the time to see that the house has
been properly Rwept, dusted and put
in order, or to prepare paddings and
mako dishes, that many young ladies
spend in reading novels that enervate
both mind and body and unfit them for
every-day life. Women do not as a
general rule get pale faces by doing
house-work. Their sedentary habits,
in overheated rooms, combined with ill
chosen food, are to blame for bad
health. Oar mothers used to pride
themselves on their housekeeping and
fine needle work. Why ahonld not we ?

The use of watered silk for parasols
is a uow featnre. White Watered silk,
with a shirred ruffle edged with Spanish
lace, a bonqnet of roses at the top hold
by a bow of laco, and a whit©-wood or
other fancy handlo, forms the dressy
parasol for drives in the park, and for
midsummer at Saratoga, Newport, etc.
There are also many red moire parasols
with black Spanish laco frills, and oth
ers of ecrn, pale bine, or old gold moire
are ohosen with reference to certain
toilets. The black watered silk par
asol with or without the bouquet of
flowers is offered to use with various
costumes, and will rival thoso of black
satin used last year. Alternate frills
of white or black satin (pinked on the
edges) and Spanish lace cover other
handsome parasols. Cueokod black
whit© silks, also checked silks that are
watered, and striped satin with the
stripes running around, are also used
with the shirred frill. Among
other white parasols, those with a
frill of chine silk that looks like hand
painting are very handsome. Black
Spanish net is also laid over satin
parasols—black, red or ecru—in the
way it is used for dress waists and man
tles. The polka-dotted laco is liked for
this purpose. The only novelty in
shape is the Bonlevard parasol, which
is really as flat and straight as the
Japanese shape. Shrimp pink is a fa
vorite color for lining black, white,
ecru or pale blue parasols. New sun
umbrellas are of double-faced silk,
with the outside changeable and the
inside of a solid color ; for instance, a
brown and red or green and red change
able twilled silk will havo a dark red
ou the inside. A bow of the change
able side is tied on the handle. Bronso
and hammered silver knobs are on the
handles of umbrellas, while the para
sols have a largo ring, or triangle, or
hook made of the pretty whitewood of
the stick. Thero is also a great deal of
fine carving on handles of fine wood,
and others are inlaid. Borne ebonised
■ticks are seen in black and dark-col
ored parasols, but tho preference is for
natural sticks of light woods, such as
bamboo, tonquin, palm, cypreas, waug
hee or orange, with thoso of vegetable
ivory and oork mounted with silver.—

What a rant amount of human an ton

properly care for the foot of their chil

tor of cleanliness, too often disregard

doTolopmont of the foot, and directly
concern the future comfort of tho indi
vidual. Fortunately, tho day* in which
tho foot was squeezed into tho smallest
possible shoe or boot hare gone by.
But life long trouble may result from
wearing shoos that are too largo. When
a shoo fits badly, and there is with
every step a constant concussion cr rub
bing, tho skin thickens at that point.
At first this trouble may belong
only to tho surface akin or cuti

is affected, and in some cases even tho
muscles may become involved and
painfnlly diseased. These troubles,
when small, are called corns; when

All have the name origin, an undue,
long-continued local pressure, and are
all the same nature, being an attompt

and hardening of the akin, while the
parts below become exceedingly sensi

description may result from a pressure
of too tight a shoe, or the frequent
rubbing of one that is too loose.
Young people should always have well
fitting shoes, and if they wear woolen
stockings all the time they will be more
likely to escape corns than with ootton

Austria was the first to adopt postal
cards; in October, 1809, 2,930,000 pass

months. Germany adopted them in
1870, 45,468.being used in Berlin alone
on the first day, and over 2,000,000 in
the first two months. During the
Franco Prussian war over 10,000,000
postal cards passed between the German
soldi* rs and their homes. The whole
of Europe uses annually about 350,000,-
000. The consumption in Great Britain
amounts to nearly 119,000.000, and of
the United .Suites about 230,000,000.
In 1879 Germany consumed 122,747,000.
Seventy-three countries now use them.
Hoth Green, of Rochester, New York,

country. Tho demand for California

Emigration into the United States
for tho current year bids fair to exceed
in magnitude tho record of any pre
vious year, though tho arrivals in 1881
gave an aggregate of GC9.431. Tbe
largest number that cTer arrived in any
previous yeArs was 457.257 in 1880, 459,-
803 in 1873, and 427,833 in 1854. Prior
to the year 1820 no statistics of emigra
tion were officially kept, though it has
1ocd estimated that the whole number
of aliens coming to the United States
from 1789 to 1820 was about 250,000. In
the year 1829 but 8,385 arrived, though
tbe total nnmber since that date aggre
gate nearly 11.000,000. The arrirals
of Germans and Irish during that pe

millions of each.
The V.ritith Medical Journal says the
revelations made from time to time by
medical officers of health describe so
much ignorance snd neglect, and such
fatal sources of disease, thst it is not
surprising tbat " miik epidemics" are
so numerous. Dr. Ooldie bas been
investigating the probability of a spread
of a certain epidemic which has just
been visiting Leeds throngh the medium
of the milk supply. He bas come to
the conclusion that the way in which
some of the milk supplies are stored in
dirty houses, where all tho usual opera
tions of s whole household arc being
carried out, with, in many cases, gallons
of milk standing in open vessels, is
simply a ready method of spreading
typhoid or other infectious diseases.
More pounds of oleomargarine than
of batter were exported during 1881
from the United States. Duringthe six
| fiscal years ending June 30, 1881, the
annual value of the oleomargarine ex
port rose from #70,483 a year to $381,-
566; and whereas in 1878 tbe quantity
exported was only 1,698,401 pounds, in
1881 it was 26,327,676. On tbe other
hand, the amonn# of batter exported
during the twelve months of 1881 was
21.331,358 pounds, while tbe year before
it had been more than 87,000.000; and
the valne of tbe export fell off $3,250,-
000. "This," says tbe Amsnorm Omlti
valor, "is s fraudulent imitation, damag
ing tbe foreign trade in American batter
by making consumers suspicions of tbe
latter. A few manufacturers of oleomar
garine aro getting rich at the expense of
millions of oar dairymen.''

A Minister's I'rr-lirameaU
Daniel Webster had an anecdote of
old Father s-arle, the minister of
his boyhood, which is too good to be
lost: It was customary then to wear
knee breeches in cold weather. One
Sunday morning in antnmn Father
Soar 1 brought his breeches down from
the garret, bnt the wasps had takes
possession daring the summer, and
were baring a nice time of it in them.
By dint of effort he got out the intruders
and prepared for meeting. Bat, while
reading the Scriptures to the congrega
tion, he felt s dagger from the enraged,
small-waisted fellows, and jumped
around the pulpit slapping his thighs.
But the more he slapped and danced,
the more they stung. Tho people
thought him crazy, but ho explained the
matter by: " Brethren, don't be
alarmed; the word of the Lord is in my
mouth, but the deYil is in my hreechea !'*
Webster always told this with great
glee to the ministers.
