housekeeping she came and while her capable and wise hands held the reins ilie wheels of the domestic chariot ran upon or if they did nobody ever kuew the day came when those ivins tell into my unaccustomed and t he result as when Phaeton essayed to drive tho chariot of liis lather Tin1 steeds ran aw and if I was not consumed by the solar our dinner very ollen was by the sublunary Iliad

great deal more than two or tlireo thou sand a that in New In the hundred thousand dollar man will ueed to le wise and to have a wise helpmeet if the ends of the year are to To be a young couple may

American families consist of there is always the possibility of and a wise man makes provision for thef uture before he burnshis Having thus laid down tiie let ogglance at the The country is at least along 3e eastern seaboard and in our great catfaer over than under populated Bomle of living lias been expanded out of reason young girls now drees with more solid tnagnifioanoe than tbeir grandmothers used they know of servingtbem making tin most of a and lie sum of it all is that tie 5ouqg men cannot afford to are not tnrnt able to stan3 alone so long as there is a father to lean Tie out come of all this is while the nat ural attraction between the sexes con and young men are as eager to make love to women as they used to it is poor cannot with the same They still feel that they should like to make this or that girl their but they know very well that they cannot and they must be very careful not to commit themselves to any Bach lest they should be held to it by stern papas and belligerent broth What is the consequence that they go just as far as is safe in love making and there oftentimes leav ing the poor girl utterly bewildered and uncertain of their Of this course is not only dis tressing to the womaa but demoralizing to the man the honest instincts of his heart try to assert but are crushed down not so much by wisdom by cunning the heart grows false and e pyes become for they love when the lips have no inten tion of Will yon be my wife The hand presses significantly that other but does not ask it in marriage the tongue frames moving speeches of of the need of of the charm of meeting one who can and a thousand other pretty but it never sjieaks the few plain Knglifh words that offer all a man has and is to the woman of bis like everything else in our lias become and as in embroidery we accepts certain figure fora rose and another for a al though of them resembles a rose or so jKior Love no longer is an in nocent boy leading his brother Hymen by the but has become a gay and debonair using words not to declare the truth but to cunningly disguise to say a tiling and not mean and to mean a thing and be very care ful not to say I do not suppose or at least every is conscious of pursuing tliis but the social con ditions TTC have already noted uncon sciously impress themselves upon his the same sort of instinct grows up in him that stimulates the hare to double and wind and liide its tracks by all sorts of simple He is afraid of bmng caught if he pursues an straightforward and so is the man poor both But how is a girl t o for There are still men who can or will to and attentions are as sincere and full of purpose as all mens used to be in the old time How shall the girl or how shall her mother know for whether the man who singles her out at every who gives her flowers and begs her to give him one in who gazes at her as none but lovers who says all sorts of pretty things and implies more than he who shows his admiration in a thousand ways but his intentions in is a genuine aspirant or a honey bee desirous of sweets for the colJ days of lifes or mere ly a hovering and sipping and waving gorgeous idle wings in tho sum mer but doomed to perish in the first adverse wind there is no like that of two and two make that can be laid and for one because the man often does not himself know his in Girls have changed as well as men since the good old honest and a wise man before closing any bargain likes to IKsure of his and before paying down such a price as himself he likes to know just what value received It isnt at alia pleasant idea that a girl is Uing as if it were a question of a horse or a and these dear men are after all so transparent that they seldom can carry through such a proceeding witliout being discovered but when a man is discov ered iii iliis ungallant attitude of it is pretty certain proof that he has se rious If he is only amusing himself it is nothing to him whether the object is or or sweet or conscientious but if she is to be liis wife all these things mat ter very and he tries more or less artlessly to discover the truth about Then I think there is a certain trneand loyal tenderness in the manner of the bee that the butterfly and a cer tain flavor of respect and deference in liis attentions and The English marriage service makes the man With my body I thee and a good man has someUiing of thflt feeling toward the girl to whomie means to confide liis his his Thus the marrying man will not be likely to lead the girl who may become his wife into questionable frolics orarisque adventures he always feds re sponsible for her good while the butterfly is only thinlHng of his own The marrying man will of his mother and if they are try to promote an ac quaintance or if the mother is a rlmr memory he will very likely seek sym paUiy from tie he believes Also her family wOl be a subject of interest to the man who is going tomake may studying the dispositions andmanners of its while the butterflylooks upon them with unfeigned or simply as obstacles to his These are a few of the indications which Ihave observed of a mans atten tions in these conventional alter the surest touchstoneis oneaot eo easily and that isthat deii intuitive perception with which most women are a sort of glorified subtler and more reliable than mans boasted By this power a woman of developed character and perceptions judges every man who approaches her in the charac ter of and if his atten tions become at all or if she is herself interested in she rarely fails to place him just about where lie and sometimes sees what he means and what he wants before be knows it In that case she either delicately leads him on to say what he has to or as delicately shows him that it is or if he is frfrnarffT she occasion ally makes him fed in tie end that the aimaaiiiml hit nntill hrm nn tin rnrki Tbetean few that make a but puD the feathers outof his discovering that he lias been seen has served as the plaything of an idle hour to one whom he thought he was thoroughly He goas away very abject and shabby and we will hope improves by the les But the trouble of this last test that girls do not possess the essential instinct of intuition as women They are at once too simple and too sure of their own attractions it is to them the most probable thing in the world that every man who speaks prettily to them wants to marry and the of vanity dulls the instinct of But the grrl cannot love so cannot suffer so cannot be so crushed by disappointment as the wo and so it remains prettv equal after and both woman and girl had best try to value themselves so highly that his intentions matter verv little after all BITS OF FOREIGN Some Transatlantic schetnef for Tickling tiie PalatN of In every country there is some special dish that is easy to make and one of which the materials can be found in almost any other coun In the course of a somewhat pro tracted which carried me through many I made a point of finding out how to cook any of those dishes that struck my fancy and would bear In Holland you get the most delicious Dutch They take sonr milk and pat it in a mushn bag and hang it up over In the morning this is a solid mass but not tough as when as some make Sale and pepper are added and a tea cup of rich sweet cream is stirred into say a quart of the and this is then eaten and not left to harden or turn acrid and Any one can make and whoever OOPS will say they want no more smear case as long as there is milk to be had to make tliis kind In Nuremburg I was persuaded against my will to try some and I took some and dehghted itinas soul by asking how she cooked It was like a pungent and begat an appetite even while one really needed nothing She took two quarts of sauerkraut oat of the barrel at dipping deep below the and this she put in four quarts of clear In morning this was drained off and the sauerkraut put on tun fire to simmer dowry sir hours with just enough water to keep it from a pinch of table spoonful of moist brown a tea spoonful of caraway and every half hour she added a tablespoonfnl of clarified goose and one table spoonful of tart Let folks lough at sauerkraut as much as they li They never will again if tiey try this dish In Vienna what pleased me most was thf famous schnitzel and tiny I dont know to this day whether the potatoes grow that small or are cut that way but they are just a mouth ful mine and very sweet and The schnitzel I found was prepared in this wise Ova pieces of veal without bone about half or threequarters of an inch thick are moistened with rolled in then in beaten yolk of egg and afterward in powdered crackers and carefully dropped in hot lard and fried to a deep golden Of course they are seasoned with peper and just a suspicion of done they look like cxtta large fried and are laid upon a just to drain off the and then served on hot plates with a necklace of potatoes and a breast pin of half a Another simple and econom ical dish particularly pleased me in Buda A deepdish held a greenish look ing which proved to cabbage boiled and served and when little triangular slices were cut out it was seen to have a layer of finely minced meat be tween every two To prepare one wants a large a rather loose cabbage and one pound of minced and soaed meat to every two of The cabbage is washed and plunged into boiling salted water for tiui or fifteen aud then taken out very much which permits the deft fingers of the pretty cook to carefully unfold and lay back every and then a little meat is spread on each oneand it is folded back in place until all the meat is safely spread and carefully folded over the Tapes are then around the whole to keep it in am it is boiled slowly for three solid or which remains for the next A sauce is made witli a little of this with vinegar and It is just as good cold as like is better for every time it is warmed and is a pretty dish to look THE
