There are few things lovelier to the eye
than a young girl. A baby may be
sweeter, tenderer, dearer; but a young girl
is as satisfactory- in another way. Lithe,
symmetrical, willowy, beaming with un
questioning content, her eyes are stars, her
teeth are pearls, her blushes are damask,
ler dimples are smiles, her smiles are
caresses. It is true that there are periods
of a woman's life that are happier ana finer
finer, inasmuch as consciousness is superior
to mere existence, and as humanity's (su
periority to the beast lies in conscious
ness; -while no one will deny that In
youth generally there is more of the
mere joy of living than consciousness of its
possession. A woman at SO, or at 35, is aware
ofher happiness, her nature, her possibilities;
she has reached a point in development very
sear whatever degree of perfection she is to
attain; her beauty is not yet Impaired, her
health ought to be absolute, her powers are at
their height, ana could she pause there for 100
years before growing perceptibly older she
would find the world a pleasanterplace; but, as
it is, scarcely have she and others come to the
realization of it all before much of it is a thing
of the fast the cheek has fallen, the eye has
sunken, the glow has gone, the things that
made her thrill once now give her only the
memory of that thrill.
But u the young girl is like the deiiciousness
of the rounded and sun-pierced grape, the
woman at 30 is the clear, strong wine; yet how
lovely is the bloom upon that grape! And the
question is how to keep that bloom and add to
it all the rest. The question is how to make
that rosy cheek and white forehead perennial,
their Deauty fed by whojesome and time-resisting
currents, and to enrich them besides with
the consciousness and wisdom and charm of
soul that should belong to later years, all with
out exhausting the supplying fountains of
A COMMON SENSE VIEW.
Of course the subject has to be considered in
& large manner from the physical point of vie w
that of food, clothing, and habits. "We all
know that good food makes good blood, unless
the blood is already as hopelessly vicious at its
source as the blood of Linjs good food, not
meaning rich food,buttbat which is nutritious,
sufficient, and which approves itself by its evi
dent assimilation, which fills the blood-vessels,
and makes the skin velvety as the petal of a
rose. Good; clothinc too, keeps this blood in
healthy circulation.this skin in healthy activity;
nnd doubtless if Hebe wero painted to-day for
The first time, and by a discriminating artist,
it would be in flannels that she would be pio
tnred, and in Jsegar flannels at that. A few
other things also should be allowed our young
girl whose health Is to preserve her beauty,
develop her souL and give comfort to herself
and all about hen no worry, not too much
study, plenty of bathing, and all the exercise In
the open air that she can take, and sleep at
sight, it mere are lamuyor other distresses,
they should be kept from the knowledge of the
young girl, who can do nothing to rectify them,
nnd will merely have her nerves and tempera
xnectinjured by dwelling upon them.
And as fo- her studies, it is not necessarv
JJiat she snould learn how to give the measure-
menus oi me ureal jryramia according to tne
numerical value of the Hebrew characters in
Genesis, in order to train her intellect; but her
studies should lead in directions specified by
uer own aptituaes. it sue nas an irresistiDie
desire to penetrate the secrets of cabalistic
lore, of analytical mathematics, of air-drawn
metaphysics, she can do so by and by, when
there is no question of the establishment of a
firm foundation of health: at present she wants
to multiply and 11 hsr blood vessels, oxygen
ate all the blood in them, teach her lnngs how
to breathe, round out her muscles, and set her
heartbeats to the tnne of health. And the
previous conditions obeyed, she will find all
that is wanted in exercise. Not the gauged
and balanced exercises of calisthenics and gym
nastics, in a fixed air, methods to be but guard
edly allowed the young and growing, as they
have possibilities in them of dwarfing and of
impairing growth; not those of sweeping and
dusting, since sweeping is bad work for a
woman at any time of her life, and dusting is
only lets unwholesome than living where there
is no dusting at all; but exercise out of doors,
where every draught of the open air feeds the
flame which burns away impurities, exercise of
the sort furnished by walking, riding, mountain
climbing, rowing, swimming, dancing, and
skating the last belonging to wintry weather,
most of the others to summer and walking
mid dancing to the whole round year.
One may sail from ice to ice between the
North Pole and the South, and receive no other
beneht from it than that of being in the air and
sun, and feeling the delight of swift motion
carried on another's wings. Bat, when rowing,
one is in the air and sun as well, and is expand
ing the chest and strengthening the muscles of
nil the limbs; and when between two sunsets,
one above and one beneath, out on wide ex
panses of river-mouth, or rocking on the swell
about the islands of the sea, or lifting the pro
tecting boughs of secluded reaches and dark
pools of inland rivers and gliding into the creen
shadow, or pausing out under the immensity of
fctarlit space that one sees in a boat level with
the water as nowhere else, is it that the soul,
too, does not expand, and the intellectual fiber
quicken and gather strengthT
Few of our j oung girls will ever swim so as
to fancy themselves the attendants of Galatea,
but the effort will xall every portion of the
body into exertion, and the knowledge possibly
be of inestimable use to them some day; yet
wise precautions are to be taken in this matter,
the shock of sea-bathing being something that
all systems cannot bear. Few of them, again,
will climb mountains easily as Oreads; but the
uttempt will purity the blood M all the medica
ments of the pharmaenpasia would fall to do.
All of them cannot afford riding, nor obtain
u master in the art of mounting, and may not ex
perience the transport of controlling another
will, becoming almost a part of another crea
ture, and feeling the ecstacy of danger defied,
of swift passage, and bounding animal spir
its. But all of them can dance and set
the whole body moving to measure
nnd rhythm, the pulses playing to
music, and the brain responding to
ordered sound, all of tbem can know that de
light of being when, thoroughly attuned to
melody, one floats on wings, and the lark that
beats the sky knows no more joyous flight
only in good air, in innocent companionship, in
healthy hours All of them, too, can skate, if
they will, and live in freezing latitudes; and it
v ould bo hard to say .whore a wilder, sweeter,
loftier exhilaration can be found in merely
bodily exercise, with the ring of the steel upon
the ice, the rush of the air hurrying past, the
long impulse, the flashing, glancing flight all
but aerial, full of glad celerity, as if the skates
Were the god's talana, the very spirit and soul
of motion at will, with the eager directing force,
the slow wheeling pause, and no part of the
frame, from the tingling toes to the gray matter
of the excited brain, not called into use in the
But if, peradventure, they may not dance, or
cannot skate, or have no water for rowiog, onr
young girls without exception may walk; and,
after all, walking can be made almost the equal
in pleasure of the other forms of exercise and
quite their equal in health. Not the slow gait
of the observing naturalist, if it is an affair of
health, but the brisk, quick gait from point to
point, andtbe lingering and observation upon
arriving. In fact, with short skirts, with easy
boots, with a companion alert as one's self, with
shoulders back, head up, and arms swinging, a
fcalt of SO minutes to the mile, if 15 is too much,
(Ives one presently a sort of unconsciousness
of the separate acts of moving the feet, and a
tensation as near akin to flying as It is given to
the children of earth to have, while the lungs

The Hostetter Stomach Bitter Peoplo Score
In the United Slates Circuit Court for the
Southern District of New York, Judge
Shipman handed down an opinion a few
days ago in the suit of the owners of the
trade marks covering Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters against Arnold Theller and Cornell
Theller, the compounders located on Vesey
street, New York City, in which it was de
cided that, although the defendants made
use of their own names on the labels affixed
to the bottles containing bitters prepared by
them, yet as they were evidently designed
to imitate the Hostetter labels, they were
infringers, and a perpetual injunction was
granted and an accounting of damages
ordered, together with the costs of the suit
It is the evident intention of the Hostetter
people to protect their valuable trade stark
against all infringers.

The play of unrestricted imagination in in
terior decoration is often productive of effects
striking if not beautiful, but the jumbling
together of various features of design without
rule or order may result in something startling,
bntit will surely be of questionable desir
ability. Some of the combinations of incon
gruous designs and colors huddled toge'ther in
a most haphazard manner in the form of
papered ceilings in many of our modern dwell
ings are calculated to strike the observer as
being products of a disordered imagination
veritable nightmares rather than effects in
artistic interior decoration. If a ceiling is to
be decorated in strong colors they require to be
very skilfully chosen so as to perfectly har
monize with each other. Colors which are soft
and subdued are far the safest to ue for this1
Eurpose, however, and in most cases much the
est. Most rooms are quite small enough and
the ceilings sufficiently low, which appearance
Is rendered still more obvious by the crowding
of gorgeous and highly colored decorations
upon the celling.

There Is a National Cemetery here, containing
the graves of U,T00 of out comrades who were
starved to death in the prison located here during
the war. Mot a flower was placed upon these
raves to-day, excent those dropped by my fellow
rldgeworkers and myself. The talk oftlio "Bine
and the Gray" joining hands In the matter of
decorating the graves here Is all nonsense. The
fact is, It is considered a disgrace here to place a
flow er on a Union soldier's grave, and no one but
a Yankee or a negro wonld be guilty of doing so,
and the latter is afraid to attempt It.

The Washington Infantry rendered some
good service during the short period the mem
bers were away, but like all independent bodies,
could not expect to receive the support of
those in authority.
The honorable and ancient Duquesne Greys
turned out last Thursday to attend a funeral.
They made a first-class appearance, but were
rather attenuated in numbers, having but 17
members in line. The band with them num
bered 32 pieces.
The members of Battery "B" are sore, very
sore, in fact about the manner la which Adju
tant General Hastings' fired them out of
Johnstown last Monday. They went up like
men on the first call and offered to do and did
work that was of the most severe kind, but
when LientenantShepherd reported to General
Hastings, he was ordered to leave at once.
There seems to be a growing public interest
and pride manifested In tbe National Gnard
throughout the State. Volunteer organizations
in every quarter are seeking admission, and
over 100 applications are on file in the Adjutant
General's office for permission to raise com
panies of Infantry, with more constantly cop
ing in. Occasional requests are also received
ior autnonty to raise a oattery or cavairy com
pany. General axline, Adjutant General of the
Ohio National Guard, has certainly made a
record for himself during tbe past week by his
efforts in behalf of the Johnstown sufferers.
In addition to having 900 tents at the scene ot
the disaster before the affair was 24 hours old
he has remained in the vicinity with a large
force of workmen brought from his own State.
The comparison of the heads of the Ohio
Guards with those in the same departments of
our own State are not pleasant to the latter.
A private telegram was received yesterday
from Johnstown stating that the Eighteenth
Regiment would be ordered out to do guard
duty about Monday, The message was from
an individual who is in a position to know
something about tbe matter, so members of tbe
regimcnt may expect orders at any moment
and shonid be on the alert. Should both city
regiments be kept in Johnstown for any pro
tracted period, it is extremely probable that
their regular summer, encampment will be
postponed this year, as it would be pushing
things too bard to follow so closely with
another tour of duty.
The past week has been rather an eventful
one in military circles lathis end of the State.
Not since the riots of 1877 have the troops had
an extra call for service outside of the regular
routine duties. Last Sunday the Eighteenth
Regiment assembled 4s7 men on Wood street
on exactly two hours and forty minutes' no
tice, a feat never before equaled In this State.
The order was Issued by Lieutenant Colonel
Rutledgc, after repeated demands from the
Chamber of Commerce, who were receiving
telegrams hourly from Johnstown, calling for
protection, and had notGeneral Hastings wired
an absolute refusal to allow tbe regiment to
move, it certainly would have reported for duty
at the scene of tbe disaster. As it was, the
people of Pittsburg were given an opportunity
to see the kind of material tbe Eighteenth is
made of. The action of General Hastings in
calling out tbe Fourteenth the day following,
and refusing the offer ot the Eighteenth, is ex
plained by himself in the fact that be merely
obeyed the orders of Governor Beaver, who
named tbe regiment he wanted. Governor
Beaver's reason for thns publicly insulting the
officers of tbe Eighteenth Regiment can be ex
plained on political grounds only. That it was
an insult every military man in Pittsburg
knows, as Colonel Smith is many years the
senior of Colonel Percnment in rank, and the
companies of the Eighteenth are all centrally
located, while those ot the Fonrteenth are
scattered over the entire county, and portions
of them ontsldo the county. Governor Beaver's
entire course of action, however, during the
past week has shown about the same amount

The Story of a Yonns Lady Who Cornel to
San Francisco Chronicle.
The question of being burled alive and
the recent case of Washington Irving
Bishop were matters discussed by a party
of gentlemen at the Bohemian Club the
other night. A journalist who was present
told the following story of local interest:
"Living in San Francisco to-day are two
persons whose strange experience have long
been a mystery to me. Two years ago a
Boston gentleman came out to the Coast.
He brought with him his companion, a
young woman in the last stages of consump
tion. She was pretty and talented, and 10
years younger than her escort. I am of the
opinion that a sort of Platonio love existed
"Three times to my own knowledge the
young woman has apparently passed outof
this life into the other world, and twice
S reparations have been made for her burial,
n one occasion her companion was out of
the city, when she was taken suddenly with
a sinking spell, and the landlady became
greatly alarmed. In two hours the invalid
was pronounced dead by the ladies in the
boarding bouse who were in attendance
upon her. As the day advanced the land
lady, seeing no signs of the gentleman's re
turn, visited an undertaker's near by and
preparations were made for laying out the
corpse. -Liie body was cold and sua wnen
the undertaker arrived. He viewed the
corpse and went back to his shop for his as
sistant. During his absence the inissjng
companion of the dead young woman ar
rived upon the scene. It was now about 4
o'clock in the afternoon. Upon be
ing informed of her death some
five hours before, the gentleman ut
tered an exclamation of surprise. Then,
rushing up to the room where the body lay,
he closed the door behind him and turned
the key. When the undertaker retumedhe
was reiused admission. Two hours later the
gentleman emerged from the room and or
dered two suppers sent to the apartment.
Later the young lady was seen sitting up
right in bed, eating heartily. Her com
panion had brought ner back to life by a
method of rubbing and physical manipula
tion known only to himself. Twice after
this he repeated the performance. Three
times, to my knowledge, has this man
brought the young woman back from the
dead. She lives here to-day, still an invalid,
and isiliable to die again at almost any mo
ment." THE SNAKE SWALLOWED THE MAN.
The Strange Discovery of Two Skeletons
Down In Texas.
A strange discovery one that is causing
the thoughtful to ponder over the unwrit
ten past was made yesterday by a French
citizen near Gainesville, Tex. Having oc
casion to sink a well, Mr. Sommes, the
Frenchman in question, selected a spot in a
valley near a ravine of great length, and
which, during "heavy rains, is transformed
into a raging torrent, depositing in the val
ley limestone, gravel, mud and other debris.
After reaching a depth of four feet, and
while in a formation of limestone gravel
that had continued almost uninterruptedly
from the surface down, Mr. Sommes came
upon the vertebra and ribs of an animal,
The ribs were about the size of a small pig's,
and rapidly tapered.
Carefully vneartbing the bones toward the
tapering end, Mr. Sommercame to the rat
tles, which, when counted, numbered 17,
the largest measuring six Inches across.
Attracted by the strange find the neighbors
gathered in and the work of unearthing the
monster was prosecuted with vigor. After
laying bare 19 feet of the remains of the
monster of other time, imagine their con
sternation at finding the entire skeleton of a
man of tremendous stature in the stomach of
tbe skeleton ot the snake. The remains of
the man and the serpent as far as the serpent
has been exhumed, are as perfect as when
first denuded of flesh, and were doubtless
covered by lime and gravel soon after death.
Near the bones of the man's right hand is a
rude stone hatchet, which a local geologist
of some repute reports to be similar to the.
handiwork ot paleolithic man. '

How a Witty Englishman Surprised the
Slerabers of a Boston CInb. .
The Youth's Companion. J
A man who gets the reputation as a good
after-dinner speaker Is usually one who has
power to tell a story welL It may not al
ways be a very new story, or a very witty
one, but if it is well told it is almost certain
to be successful at a dinner party. Ons
thing is fatal in such an attempt prosinesa.
Sometimes, however, a success is won in
not telling a story when It is expected, in
not making a speech when people suppose
that one is coming.
A certain famous and witty Englishman,
visiting America, was asked to make an
after-dinner speech at the "Ladies' Night"
of a Boston club. It was a literary club,
and be was a literary man, to it was ex

Burns composed his war-ode, "Scots wha

tempestuous day, over a wild Galloway
moor. Carlyle says that this stem hymn of
war "should be sung with the throat of the
whirlwind," for it is "the best that was ever
written by any pen."
Perhaps tbe fact that the hymn stirred
Carlyle's warm Scotch blood influenced his
judgment. The poet Wordsworth, being an
Englishman and not a Scotchman, called it
"thrash" and "stuff." Mrs. Hemans re
lates that while conversing with Words
worth, she asked:
"Do you not think Burns war-ode, 'Scots
wha hae,' has been a good deal overrated,
especially by Mr. Carlyle, who calls it the
noblest lyric in the language?"
"I am delighted to hear you askjme that '
question," answered Wordsworth. "Over
rated! thrash stuff miserable, .insanity!
"Without a thought! "Without an image!"
Then the poet recited the piece in a tone of
unutterable scorn, and concluded with
A man prejudices sometimes warp his
literary judgment. A poem that does not
fit into his opinions is pronounced "stuff,"
while one that harmonizes with them is pro
