Girls Should Learn to keep House,
young lady can be too well instructed
id anything which will affect the comfort of
a family. Whatever position in society she
occupies, she needs a practical knowledge of
lioasehold duties. She may be placed in
such circumstances that it will not be neces
sary (or her to perfoi m mnch domestic la
bor; bat on this account she needs no less
knowledge than if she was obliged to preside
personally over the cooking stove and pan

difficult to direct others, and requires more
experience, than to do the .tame work with
our own hands.
Mothers are frequently so nice and partic
ular that they do not like to give tip any
part of the care of their children. This is a
greit mistake in their management, for they
are often burdened with, labor and need re
lief. Children should be early taught to
make themselves useful ; to assist their par
ents every way in their power, and to con
sider it a privilege to do so.
Young people cannot realize the impor
tance of a thorough knowledge of house
wifery; but those who have suffered the
inconvenience and mortification of ignorance
can well appreciate it Children should be
early indulged in their disposition to bake
and experiment in various ways. It is often
bat a tronbla-oroe help that they afford; still
it h, a great advantage to them. I know a
little girl who at nine years old made a loaf
of bread every week during the winter. Iler
mother taught her how much yeast,salt and
flour to use, and she became quite an expert
biker. Whenever she is disponed to try her
flill in making simple cakes or pies, she is
permitted to do so. She U thus, while

that sJ;e will have some idea how to cook.
Some mothers give their daughters the

A STEOKE OF BUSIHE83.
I peeped in timidly, bat to my great de
light, he was entirely alone.
"My dear Miss Bernice I" he exclaimed,
warmly taking me by both hands ; "this is
indeed a pleasure I Sit right down here, and
tell me what is the matter, for I know you
never would have bearded the old fellow in
his den for nothing."
"There is a great deal the matter," said
I desperately, as I began to feel my nicely
prepared speech slipping entirely away from
"I am sorry to hear it," he replied, look
ing grave immediately, and evidently ex
pected some overwhelming communication.
I tried to begin as I had intended, but it
would not com j, and exhausted with nerv
ous excitement burst into tears. Then every
thing came out in a perfect stream, without
being "sorted" at all ; and there was the
strangest mixture of my hopes and fears and
project, and my intention of buying a bouse
in the same breath that I acknowledged my
self unable to pay for one room, until my
hearer looked quite stunned, and evidently
began to wonder if I had lost my senses.
Then he looked amused, and presently he
said : "My dear girl, there is no need of
crying ; let us examine this matter rational
ly. You wish, you say, to buy a small house,
that you may have a more desirable room
for your school, and lessen the expense of
rent ; strikes me as a particularly sensible
idea. As to the money part yoa will not be
obliged to pay the whole sum down ; how
much have you at your command ?"
"I have j use one thousand dollars in the
world," I replied, shortly.
" One thousand dollars P' repeated Mr.
Portman, in amazement. "You can not re
ally mean it! The daughter of my old friend
Edward Mapleton reduced to this 1 Why
did you not let me know it before?"
"I would not have told you now," said I
proudly, "had you not asked me."
The old gentleman walked about the office,
baking his head in a very disa pproving
way. 'Tour child !" said he, "poor child 1"
"I am toot so very much to be pitied,"
said I, determined to assert myself to the
last; "I have youth and health, and al
though I do labor under the disadvantage
of being a woman, I intend to accomplish
something yet. I will never be dependent
on any one except for kindness ; but if you
are willing, Mr. Portman, to lend me what
ever is required above my thousand "
"Willing 1" he exclaimed warmly ; "I
would be willing,' Bernice, to do far more
but if this is the only assistance you will ac
cept, let us goat once and look at the house."
My heart was considerably lightened as
we set forth, and directed our steps to No.
4J Plum street. We found Messrs. Broad
and Long in the shape of one hard-looking
gentleman, who was neither broad nor long,
excepting by name.
He eyed us critically, and then said in an
indifferent way ; "Yes neat little house
owner going West. No. 00 Lumbago Street.
Mr. Portman examined every part of the
house very critically, and when the agent
left us for a moment he told me that it was
very well built, and that tho price, $4000,
was exceedingly moderate.
"You could probably get $5000 for it,
after a little time, if you wished to sell,"
This was a pew view of the case; and it
set me thinking more desperately than ever.
Make a clear $1000, after paying Mr, Port
man what I owed him, and thus double
my money! It was quite exciting; and I
felt disposed to go at once into the real es
The end of all was that the house became
mine at least nominally, for I always felt
that it really belonged to Mr. Portman : and
when the deed was executed and placed in
my hands I almost doubted my own identi
ty. My aesthetic soul, however, received a
severe shock in the wording of the document,
wherein I was stigmatized as "Bernice
Mapleton, spiiixter " now much more
agreeable to my feelings the term "damsel"
or "maiden" would have been ! I tried to
remember th.-t I was twenty-four; but
"spinster" sounded like forty, at least.
Spinter or not, though the house was mine ;
and I, almost a pauper, was actually a property-holder
"Now," said Mr. Portmar, cheerfully,
wheu the matter was all arranged, "I really
think Miss Bernice, this is the brightest
thing you have done for many a day."
"That you have done, you mean," I mur
mured. 'No,' he replied stoutly, 'my noddle didn't
hatch out the plan at all ; the credit of it
belongs to you. And, unless I am a false
prophet, your fortunes will turn from this
Mr. Portman knew of a young married
couple, just from Maine, who would be glad
to occupy the remainder of my house ; and
before long they were installed there, at a
rent that covered all expense, and left my
school room rent free ! I began to have
quite a respect for my business qualities.
The bride was just the sweetest little thing
that I ever saw ; and she would bring her
sewing into the school-room, and listen to
my style of teaching, and declare that she
ought to be regularly entered as a pupil,
and pay her tuition fee like the othprs.
I took great pride in my new school-room ;
and two new scholars from the neighbor
hood came to supply the place of those I
bad lost. Every one prophesied brilliant
success for me in the spring, and I looked
quite hopefully forward.
I had not been long in possession of my
house when I was informed, one evening,
that a gentleman wished to eee me in the
parlor. Now my room looked particularly
cosy and pleasant, and I was, moreover
writing deep in' a story that promised to be
a great success. My hair was somewhat
tumbled about, but rather picturesquely so ;
and quite foregetful of my little apron, I
concluded to go down just as I was. Proba
bly some pompous-looking father of a fami
ly awaited me, with a string of questions
about my school ; and trying to assume a
proper expression of dignity, I walked quiet
ly into the room.
Bather a tall gentleman was bending over
Miss Plidget's photograph album-the grand
ornament of the center table, and although
the gas was miserably low, I could see that
he was just then occupied by my picture, or
with that of Miss i lidget herself which was
just opposite to it He seemed quite ab
sorbed, and did not hear me when I came
The visitor was young and fine looking,
with a frank, determined face, that would
win its way anywhere. On the card that I
received was written "Geo. Ilelmwood."
Surely he could not have any children to
place at school? What could hejpossibly
with want me ?
He looked around surprised when I turn
ed Jup the gas, and glanced hastily from me
to the album again. He bowed to me po
litely as he said, "I called to see Miss Maple
ton I was told that she lives here."
"I am Miss Mapleton," I replied rather
"A lady who has a school on Lumbago
street," he continued, hesitatingly, "who
owns a house there."
I pleaded guilty to both tkyse charges,
and the gentleman looked both amnsed and
"Pardon me," he said, presently, with a
smile, "I I expected to see an older lady.
I scarcely know how to begin."
"Is it anything about the school ?" I
asked, by way of helping him.
"No," was the reply ; "it is about the
house. The truth is, Miss Mapleton. I want
to buy the house or rather my father does
and he has authorized me to negotiate
for it. Have you any desire to sell it ?' '
"I have only just bought it," said I
scarcely knowing what else to say ; "and
my school is there. Besides, it is rented
for a year."
"Will you let my father call and see you
about it?" asked my visi tor, after a pause.
"The truth is, I I do not understand such
business very well... My father is willing to
give $10,000 for the proprety he must
have it, if possible."
Was I really in my sober senses? Ten
thousand dollars! I must have looked and
acted in an expressibly silly manner, for
Mr. Ilelmwood soon took his leave without
at riving at any understanding whatever, ex
cept that I was to receive a visit from his

ing, when he had heard my story, "you will

ularly nice. Father and son are in business
together, and their large importing ware

probably realize a few hundred thousand

fore well afford to pay you $10,000 to get
you out of the way. Let them do it, by a!!
Thus fortified I was quite ready for Mr.
Helm wood, senior, wliO a remarkably
fine-looking old gentleman, not unlike nls
son, and who stared at me during the inter
view as though he had a dim recollection of
having seen roe before. He was quite at
his ease, and I felt much less embarrassed in
discussing business matters with him than
with his son ; there was, moreover, warmth
and urbanity in his manner that quite chat
"Now, my dear young lady 1" said he,in
a quick, earnest way, "the facts of the case
are just these : I do not wish to be regarded
by you in the light of a filibuster, nor as
coveting what is legally and properly yours;
but I have had my eye on that property for
some time past; and it was only lately, while
in a neighboring city on a matter of business
that I was informed it was for sale. I im
mediately wrote to George to secure it at
once ; but he wrote back that it had been
bought by a single lady for a school. (And
here I may as well say in parenthesis that
you do not at all answer the idea we had
formed of the single lady in question, and I
cannot help looking on you in some sort as
an im poster. ) I then marched George im
mediately off to this elderly maiden of our
imaginations to see if she could be prevail
ed upon to sell at an advance. The young
man, however, returned in an unsettled
tatc of mind, having evidently failed to
bring you to terms, and coolly requested me
to finish the business myself. I believe
Miss Mapleton that you paid $4,000 for
the house. I will double that amount."
I bit my lip to keep from smiling. Truly
the son tea unbusiness-like. "I did not
buy the bouse to sell again," I replied, very
"I know it You bought it, of course,
for your school, and I suppose it just suits
you ; but, unfortunately, it just suits me too.
Would $9,000 tempt you ?"
I remained silent, fearful that if I spoke,
I should laugh.
"Now," said Mr. Helmwood, rising in
his earnestness, "I must have the placet
and.rather than lose it.1 will give you $10,
000 for it"
"That is just what your son offered me at
first," I replied, without raising my eyelashes.
L "The young idiot 1" exclaimed his father
laughing- "Pray, how did he word his of;
fer, if you can recall it ?"
"To the best of my recollection he said ;
'My father is willing to give $10,000 for
the property hemust have it,if possible.' "
"And you have been quietly laughing at
me in your sleeve all this time !" said my
visitor. "I am willing to give $10,000 for
the property, but I preferred it for $8,000,
which is considerably above its Value to any
one but myself. Is it a bargain, then, at
Mr. Helmwood," said I, as I felt the oolor
rising hr my face, "one thing you will please
remember in this matter I did not offer my
property for sale, nor had I auy idea of dis
posing of it ; but much to my surprise, I was
solicited by you to part with it I am not a
'sharp woman' a character that I partic
ularly detest as I have lost nearly all the
little I possessed in foolish ventures ; and
after your son's visit to me I went,
much perplexed, to consult my friend, Mr.
Portman, through whose assistance I was
enabled to buy the house. He advised me to
accept Mr. George Helmwood's offer, and
explained to me that you would be an im
mense gainer by purchasing my little proper
ty, even at this extravagant price. I have
a great horror of taking advantage of any
one, and I was afraid that it might not be
quite right to receive so much more for a
thing that I bad given so little for."
"My dear Miss Mapleton," -replied Mr.
Helmwood. with a manner of great respect,
"I should Dever think of fastening upon you
the term of a sharp woman ;' but you will
not object, I hope, to my regarding you as a
remarkably clever young lady. You are quite
right in saying that the property is worth
more than $ 10,0l0 to me ; and I give it the
more cheerfully since I have seen the owner.
But I shall certainly have a good laugh at
George for his style of doing business. Per
haps, however, had I been his ag instead
of mine, I should not have acquitted myself
This was rather embarrassing, and 1 hast
ened to say: "Mr. George Ilelmwood coufd
not have mentioned to you that I have rent
ed the premises."
"Oh, yes; he did say something of the
kind. But I will uudertake to reconcile the
inmates to a change of residence, provided I
have your consent to proceed in the matter."
Finally I gave it ; it seemed to be the
best thins; I could do;, and just as he was
leaving, Mr. Helmwood scrutinized mc close
ly, as he asked :
"Will you allow me to inquire. Miss
Mapleton, if Mr. Sylvester Willingfleet is a
relative of yours?"
"He was my grandfather," I replied.
"I am very glad (o hear it !" he exclaim
ed, seizing my hand warmly. "He was one
of the old merchants of this city, and a
valued friend of mine. Many a pleasant hour
have I passed in his hospitable mansion
where, besides entertaining his equals, there
was an especial table set for the poor every
day. The graud daughter of such a man
should not "
"Be earning her own living !" said I see
ing that ho hesitated. "His grand -daughter,
sir, does not consider that she is disgracing
either him or himself by such a course."
I knew my head went up an inch or two,
and that my eyes flashed : for he said, kind
ly ; "You have just his look a little haugh
ty at times, for he was a thorough bred old
aristocrat I was troubled the first moment
I saw you to decide whom you resembled so
strongly. "And now, my dear young lady,
you will, I hope, allow us to look upon you
as a friend. My wife will call at once; and
I hope very soon to welcome you at our
house, as I have been so often welcomed nt
"Well, Bernice Mapleton," said I, whe::
I found myself alone with that individual,
what do you think of yourself now? Are
you really yourself or somebody else ? Or
have you been dreaming all these bewilder
Mr. Portman congratulated me oh my
good fortune, laughing heartily at my ac
count of the interview with Mr. Helmwood ;
and by the next morning I was so fully per
suaded that things were what they seemed
that I bought a pound of French candy to
celebrate the event, and tried to inveigle
Miss Plidget into sharing the feast with me.
But that wary female, who was given to
dyspepsia and other absurdities, solemnly
worked her way through one sugar plum,
analyzing it all the while, as though it had
been a fragment of quartz, or something
else equally indigestible, and then absolute
ly refused to touch any more.
I was engaged in exploring the recesses of
the neat little bonbon bag when Mrs. Helm
wood was announced ; and I went to receive
a warm embrace from the most elegant-looking
old not lady, but middle-aged lady, I had
ever seen. Her features were regular and
beautiful, she was perfectly dressed, and
had the air of a dowager duchess. She in
sisted upon my going home with her at
once on a visit ; declared, in answer to my
objections, that I was not a stranger, as she
had known my grandfather well ; and finally,
I was deposited in a lovely square room,
surrounded by every luxury, and expected
to remain for an indefinite period.
There were no danghters, and only that
one son ; so Mrs. Helmwood declared that
it was a real charity for a young lady to en
liven their dullness. It was certainly a
very pleasant task, as I enlivened aiy own
atthe same time ; and I felt very thankful for
the advantage of having had a grandfather.
Master George and I were rather shy of
each other at first ; but this gradually wore
off and somehow or other we found our
selves alone together very frequently. I
tried to avoid this, for I had no desire to
repay these people's kindness to me by ta
king their son from them, for whom, they
probably had some grander match in store.
But one day the young gentleman made
some exceedingly incoherent remarks to me,
and drew a highly-colored pictu rof our
first meeting in which "my careless hair"
and "coquettish little apron" (it had aj
grsat blot of ink i6 one corner but fortu-
nately he did not see that) figured largely,
and the "exquisite picture" in Miss Plid
get's album came in for a share' of the' gen
eral enthusiasm, and I conducted myself
in consequence very much like an idiot, and
came very near forgetting everything, un
til I suddenly remembered to assure hhn
that his father and mother would probably be
anything but pleased at such arrangement, and
that I could never consent to enter a family
that was not desirous of receiving me.
My lover suddenly disappeared, and re
turned with his father.
"It seems to me young lady," said the
older gentlemen with a very quizzical look,
"that in all George's transactions with you
I am brought in to finish the busiuess. I
would have nothing to do with such a stu
pid fellow. Your very honorable conduct,my
dear Kttle girl, only makes me more anx
ious than ever to welcome you as a daugh
ter; and if I had entertained any objections
to such ajiuale, do you think I would have
been weak enough' to expose my son to the
peril of daily contact with a girl like you 7"
I had nothing to say to this; and Mr.
Ilelmwood took me in his arms and kissed
me, and then led me to his wife,from whom
I received an equally warm welcome.
It is needless to say that those five infants
on whom I had expended so much surplus
energy, were turned out to pasture without
any compunctions of conscience; and the
young couple from Maine were provided
with a larger domicile, and some very nice
furniture to put in it.
Mr. Portman would not allow me to pay
my debt to him, but insisted upon its being
appropriated to my trousseau ; and my
identical gold bonds we:e relurded to me
just as I bad given them to him. lie had
the pleasure of giving me away ; but he
said that the fact of my never having belon
ged to him made this considerable easier.
My father-in-law declared that he had
rather outwitted me, after all, as the mon
ey was all in the family.
We treated our readers some time since to
a short paragraph on the recent discoveries
of animal life in afl sugar of low grades.
Since then we have seen several confirma
tory statements, from scientific men and oth
ers, but none conveying a livlier sense of the
facts we sek forth in our former article than
the following from the N. Y. Sun, which
we are satisfied does not give tlie picture a
higher coloring than it deserves:
Last night we saw the hidden wonders of
raw sugar as they were revealed to us by a
microscope of uncommon power and great
detective ability, which will forever set us
against all sweets in that form with an in
tensity of horror, such as no man can con
ceive who has not been behind the scenes.
We saw the living hell itself in less than a
quarter of an ounce of raw sugar. There
were myriads, apparently, of horrible insects
as large as beetles, and having the appear
ance of crabs. Four dreadful legs with claw
pincers at the end ot them, jointed in four
parts as with arinor.and bristling with sharp
pointed spears, were in front ot the mon
ster, and his head was a long pyramidal
form in two joints, with finger tips at the
terminus where the mouth ought to have
been. The body was oval shaped, and mark
ed almost exactly like that ot a crab, only
upon the rims of an iuner circle upon the
back there were twelve more of tht." long
sharp spears, with two at the tail, and four
snake-iiL? tentacula. exieedingly fine in ar
ticulation, and no doubt i.j.'cr.JcJ like puss's
whiskere to be feelers, to warn the hinder
end parts of contiguous danger. The re
verse sin'd showed the ugliness of the beast
even more than the obverse, but it also
showed thewondrous mechanical genius of
the maker of it. Each limb was padded by
a mass of muscle at the base, which gave
the impression of immense (relative) power
and over the muscle there was a case of ar
mor through which it showed.
Talk about lively beasts, and lively they
were. Eager , restless, ravenous ; always
falling foul of each other, or attacking great
joints of sugar, as large in reality, as a math
ematical point. With the pinchers attached
to the end of each probosis, they caught
hold of one another, and tore one another,
repeating in their smsll way the enormous
tragedies of Tennyson's primal monsters.
The way these marvels came to light was
this: A spoonful of raw, coarse sugar was
dissolved in about three times the quantity
of water, when, as with a conjuror's rod,
the animalcules sprang to the surface, and
floated there,, swimming about, and up and
down, like the beasts that wriggle iu soft
water tubs, and finally turn into flies resemb
ling mosquitoes, but harmless. These su
gar animalcules, or acarus tacchari, as the
scientific men call them, were then gathered
up in a spoon, and placed under a glass
magnifying about 200 times. They could
be seen, however, with the naked eye, to
begin with, but not in their entire hideous
ncss until the object glass brought it out It
has been proved that in every pound of vn
rrfined, raw sugar, there are 100,000 of these
aeari. In 15 grains weight. Dr. Hassan, of
London found one hundred of these insects;
and Dr. Barker, of the Royal college of sur
geons, Ireland, found 1400 in 45 grains
weieht, or 263,000 in a pound.
Worse still, as a matter of aesthetics, this
is the very same insect that bores into the
skin of its victims in Scotch beds, and treats
them to a taste of the "Scotch fiddle," alias
