It isn't such an earty thing to lie a bright light in society after all. There is an everlasting chasing after fads of alt sorts-linguistic, musical, dramatic, historic, etc. A fashionable young lady was deploring her lot the other day to one of her companions in a swell Fifth avenue lyceuui. "Why," remarked this young woman, "w� have to knowoverytuiug, only wo don't bar* to know it all at once nor for very long at a tlmo. If wo did we r-ould not stand up under the accumulation. We take our knowledge in periods For instance, I have been out four years, and during that time I htfVo learned to play the banjo, mandolin and either, as every one of these accomplishment* bad its brief run, all in addition to what 1 knew of harp, guitar and plauo at my debut. "To the French and Italian with masters before I finished, I have acquired a smattering of German, Volapuk and ltu&rfan successively," she went on. "I bowl, ride nnd fence equally poorly, but I do every one a little-I had to, you know. What I do well Is to swim and play tenuis. Gnu reason I bo-longed to a Shakespeare class, tho next I had mornings with Bhelloy, and for two Lents I was a member of a Browning rlub." She added: "One has to know music, too, from'Die Walkuro* to 'Pinafore,* and to discuss art with the couttdenco of the Quartier I*atin. 1 bavo been through several art sieges, tho Morgan and Stewart collections, the Verestchagin display and the Barye exhibit, and for every one I have faithfully crammed. Ceramics, tapestries, heraldry- these are merely a hint of the subjects one may be called upon at any moment to discuss intelligently, and 1 really will not go to a flower show now, for orchids aro n sealed book to me. "The different imported entertainmenta are another tax upon one's knowledge/'she sighed wearily. "Just when you know a kir-moss from a May dance you aro asked to participate in a Venetian fash tup, and when you have read up to go to see a Greek play somebody lectures on Budhbist ceremonials for a fashionable charity, nnd you have to show there. It Is really vory fatiguing sometimes to keep up with the procession."-New York Journal. A Hare L#oto Letter. In tho "Life of Harriet Beecher Stowe," by her son, is given a love letter of Professor Calvin E, Stowe to his wife, written I-afore "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was given to the world. It is interesting, therefore, as being prophetic of her power aud fatno; but still more soa.�a picture of womanly character which should be framed and placed conspicuously in every household, as the Vicar of AYilkelleld kept his epitaph of his wife in her sight to remind her of what she ought to be. This love letter would tw valuable in teaching th�* wife to cultivate tjve.y noble, and to repress every ignoble, trait; tho husband to recognizo and appreciate all her true excellence; and tho young jR'rsons of the family to seek not only the unfolding uf special gift* and graces, but that Imlauee and harmcuy which wins and preserves real affection. "My dear, you must bo a literary woman. It is so written in tho book of fate. Make all your calculations accordingly, (Jet a good stock of health nnd brush up your mind. Drop tho K out of your name. It only en cumbers it nnd interferes with tho tlow aud euphony. "Write yourself fully nnd always Harriet Beecher Stowe, whh'h i.s a name euphonious, flowing ami full of miming. Then, my word for it, your husband will lift up his bead in tho gate, and your children will rise up and call you blessed. "And now, my dear wife, I want you to come home us quick as you can. Tho fact is I cannot Jivo without yuti, and if we wen- not so prodigious poor I would conro for you at oncn. There is no woman liku you in this wide world. U"ln> fl�* has m much talent with m little >Wf conceit; ho much reputation with so little u lice tat inn; so much literature with no little nonsense; so much enterprise with so little extravagance; so much tongue with w little scold; so much sweetness with bo little softness; km much of so many things and so little of so many other things?"- Youth's Companion. A Shopping Incident, j The Asters almost never shop, but Mi*-! Astor bos made the reputation of one Inter* esting little milliner. A well educated young, woman bad fitted hermit at the cost of considerable sacrifice on her own part and her mother's for teaching. Hhe obtained a position, but proved toq shy and sensitive to control the half grown boys. 8he �m n poor "disciplinarian," and stung by a rense of failure wandered up and dowu the streets wondering what she could do. Down hearted, giddy and almost fainting, she ^tumbled against a milliner's sidewalk show case and stored blankly at the Paris Ixmnets inside. Then she went to the bank, drew out hex ttnatl savings, and induced a cousin who kept a little stationer's shop In a moderntely good location to allow her window room for a half dozen hats of bc-r own concoction. It sounds like a fairy story, but in three years she had sold barely enough to keep body and soul together, when a carriage drove up one morning aud a lady bought a black bonnet that was as chic as it was uunwinding. The lady hod business, it seemed, with a decorator who lived next door, and something about the small stock of headgear had caught her eye in passing. The lady was Mrs. A*tnr, and the sale was to th� mJ Miner the lygmuiugof better fortunes. It was the one i-hance that conies to some people, not to everybody, in a life time. Mrs. A star mentioned her discovery quietly to a few people, and the milliner has a tiny parlor now on tho avenue, and is going to Paris for the second time for her stock in trade. -Cor. St. Louis PiM-Di^patch. Truo WottlutilliivK*. I was nmt'li struck by a little incident that xrurred last year. I, among others, belonging to a large |>arty who went uniting at a railway station for the train that was to carry us down to a garden party at 'one of the many lovely places ou the Thames, saw an old man, a decrepit creature, bowed and palsied, making his way to where tho third vlass compartment would tie. His arms were full of bundles of vnriou* sizes. Coming near a truck, the old man. who was half bliud, marched against the edge of it, and all his little bundles fell helplessly to the ground. Most of the young people belonging to our party broke into an irresistible laugh, They were not so much to be blamed. You will see amusement In even trifles, but t here was one among us who did not laugh. The old man's chagrin seemed to touch her. She wcni quickly forward, and as he groped nervously i'nr his parcels she lifted them on* by one mid laid them in his arms. She was not a .strictly pretty girl, but there was dignity and sweetness both in her face and in her action, I noticed that a young man, onc of our party, watched her intently. He was rich, titled, one of the matches of the London season. Supreme admiration showed it-M-lf in his face. He demanded an introduction. I gave it. In six months they were man aud wife. She made a good match, and n) did he in every sense of the word.-Diiehee* in Ladies' Home Journal. nmg strong to maJte tiftte, wnen toe engineer whistled brakes for a tirade. I climbed out of the caboose with the iirak&men, and bad s*t two brakes And wni after the third when a lurch of the earn threw me down and I fell between two of them, I had just one glimpse of the red cheeked bride at home, just one swift thought of her in widow's weeds and her heart breaking, when a hand grabbed me. I was going down head first, but tiu strong clutch, turned mo over and my foot struck the bumpers. I'd have gone then, only some one put my hands on the ladder, flung bis arms around me from behind to hold ttte there, and said: You are all right, old maa. Your nerve will come back pretty coon." "And It was a tramp, oh!" "It was, and he held me there until the train reached ita stop, and then helped me down, for the sudden fright, had taken all my Btrength and nerve away. But for him I should have been ground up under the wheels.

A SOURCE OF WONDER. Mortality of Clergymen. Among much curious Information on the subject of ministers it is shown that of 9,090 who died 100 lost their lives from infectious disease, the largest number, 127, being from "abdominal typhus," that is, gastric and nervous fevers. Constitutional maladies carried off 1M pastors, of whom 183 succumbed to "new malignant forms of disease," that is, to troubles or a cancerous character. Diseases of the nervous system proved fatal in 113 cases, St dying from brain disease and 32 from affections of the spine. As many as b'M died from throat and lung troubles, of whom ltW yielded to pnoumonia and bronchitis and 150 to consumption. Heart disease was the cause of death in 204 instances; Sftd died from apoplexy and 233 are said to have died from old age. Only 14 out of 2,030 committed suicide; 13 perished through accident, 1 l>eing murdered; 9 were dcscribeil as insane. -Medical Journal, A Costly Nhlpwre-ck. The Royal Charter is tho most notable modern instance of the wreck of a "treasure" ship. She left Australia with �350,000 in her, Uf this sum, says Charles Dickens in his chapter on this dreadful shipwreck In "The Uncommercial Traveller," �300,000 were recovered at the time of the novelist's visit to the spot where she had driven ashore. Meanwhile haw much gold and silver, minted and otherwise, is annually afloat?

I live in a city that Is comparatively small, mid my circle of acquaintances is quite extensive. Among them all I notice that with few excretions tho mothers are better looking and in many coses lint little older in appearance than the daughters. I know this is true in my own cam I cannot flutter myself that I am nenrasgood looking as my motbdr. Nine persons out of ten who do not !;iiow us take us for sis-tors, nnd the tent'/, usually takes us for stepmother and :.r�j>daughter. As I remarked ln-fore, **. large number of my per-wmal friends buve the same experience. Since I hf.va Iwen in Washington I havo noticed tlr.t tho same rule will apply, aud with equal force. 1 often wonder whether it U that the mother looks younger than her age, or tho daughter older, aud I have come to tho conclusion that it Is Iwth. But why la it! Isi it been use the girls keep Inter hours aud disapate more than they did a few years ago, or that tho mothers take better core of themselves? It cannot be becanso the mothers work less than th�y used to, because many work just as much, and I havo a very good example of the case in our colored washerwoman, who, attired in an old dress and hat, us she always is, looks as young as her grown up daughter, who, when she condescends to bring tho clothes home, wears a nice dress, stylish hat and kid gloves, oven If it is 9 o'clock in the morning.-Cor.

So prevalent among women is the amiable wish to pieuse the lords of creation, that it u�!5.y reasonably be doubled whetb'. r tb^y eve*' do anything amiss the motive for which cannot be traced to this desire. Though Eve ate tho forbidden fruit, it is nowhere denied that Adam bad twilled her about the comparative unimportance of her attainments, and had bred in her a restless appetite for mUcfllaueous learning which mude her the .-L'i'pcntV easy prey.

These euricus stockings are knitted in a very clever manner, and the material, fine wool of sheep, that might once havo been white, is now brown with ngo. Tho tieedlea with which tho work, was done must have been a little thicker than. we should choose for tho sumo purpose, and the knitting is loose and elastic. Tho stocking is begun just a" we make the design, only in the simplest ma**' er, with single thread; bnt In the con-tiuuatiouof the work it Is not simply plain, b**t funciful. The usual bordor of the stocking, which prevents the rolling up ht the work, is narrow, consisting of arowof turned uploojis; aud the circle, tho nicely shaped heel, which is a little different from our method, show a vory skillful hand.

Robbing by Kleatrieity. A novel dud somewhat seifc.itific scheme for relieving ladles of their purses has been successfully carried out by a gang of thieves aloug Milwaukee avenue and adjoining streets. The scheme is to give tho victim violent electric shock, thus temporarilv alyringher. �ri,a mcvtt rec-nt �-ict,;,ii was Mrs. Jacobseu, a professional nurse. She was returning home. An she passed in tho shadow of *a building two men brushed ugaiust her. One of i.l .1:1 touched hi'r wrist with a piece of jin-tal Sh**al once received u violent electric shock thai caused her to let go her purse and several bundles, and seut her reeling against the buildiug. She wn� so dazed for the moment that she did not realize what had happened. As wkiu as she recovered from the effects of the shock she Iwgan to look around for her purse and bundles. They were not in sight. Then it dawned upon her that she hail been roblwd. The two men who hod passed her were just turning on Milwaukee avenue. Quickening her steps, she followed them, hoping to meet an officer that she might have them placed under arrest. At Chicago avenue she quit the pursuit and rnn to the police btution and told what had oc' curred. An oiHcer was seut out with her, but the men could not be found.-Chicago Inter Ocean. Columbus* Letter. The letter of Christopher Columbus to Queen Isabella of Spain, purchased by Judge Chamberlain for the Boston Public library at tho auction of the Barlow collection of Americana in New York, is a La tiu translation of the original letter in Spanish. It Is a quarto, bound in morocco antique, with gilt edges, by Bedford, printed at Rome in 1493. It consists of four loaves, of thirty-four lines to a full page-the size of the leaf being &%x!i}� inches. And a very fine copy ltis. No copy of the original Spanish letter has yet boon found, either in mauuscrlpt or print, so that this Latin translation by Leander de Cosco takes precedence. It is fairly established to be printed in the types of Stephen Planck of Romo, though without year or place. . Harrfsse, certainly tho best authority ou that subject, has accordod this particular Im' presslon the place of honor, and as a copy now in Germany is bold at thopricoof $3,000, there seems to bo little doubt that this is valued as tho edlto princcps. Tho price paid by Judgo Chamberlain for this particular copy was $2,000. A perfect translation of the letter maybe found in Major's "Select Letters of Columbus," ono of the publications of tho Hakluyt society. There is, besides this edlto princeps, a copy of Do Cosco's translation, presumptively the third appearance of the latter, printed at Romo in the types of Stephon Planck in 1403. This edition comprises thirty-three lines to a full page, which measures 8%x5^ ou the leaf. It is in size a quarto, and bound in vellum with rough edges. In 1858 Pillnski reproduced trrciily copies in Paris. But after the issue it was discovered that it was facsimiled from an imperfect copy and wanted the first and last leaves.-Boston Herald.

A Cnrions Flower Garden. A peddler who has just returned from Winston county, Ala., tells a story which, If not true, evinces an imaginative power which no one would ever suppose him to possess. A farmer named Greene while in town was persuaded to buy a fow Chinese lily bulbs, which will grow if placed in a bottlo or jar. They resemble in nppcorance a diminutive steer's head, and sell on tho streets for a mere trifle. Farmer Green took a fancy to them and bought a dozen of them. When ho reached homo he had no bottle or jar to put thorn In and threw them into the hog lot with a bucket of spoiled potatoes. A few days afterward ono of hi* largest hogs became sick, refusing food and laying down in a corner, grunted as if In constant pain. No signs of disease could bo discovered, but a few days later the hog died. Tho cause of death was discussed in the usual family council around the supper table and it was finally concluded best to cut up the hog and find out, if possible, whether or not tho dls ease was contagious. This was done and the cause of death was instantly apimrent. Tho aniinnl hnd swallowed a Chinese lily bulb whole aud there was sufficient moisture lu the stomach to cause it to grow. The bulb bad not only swelled and sprouted, but leaves had actually formed. Tho animal was not adapted to the purposes of a flower garden and died,-Philadelphia Times.
