A Lecture on Girls. Lacking ability in every other field of action. Smither propi'so to t.ike to lec- turing, lie has selected for his discourse, beintr a subject he is fk- tniliar with, and one of general inter- est. Fmithers thus originates an idea. Afflicted first thing that happens to a little girl is that she- is a baby. The smie things happen- to little boys too, and if the-e event- in the lives of a little girl and a litle bov happen in the same day. they will usu- ally be ot abi'tu the same age. The Of little girl.- arc nothing but women, but the fathers of Kttle boys are men, and here begins the ridiculous and tyrannical distinction between the education and privileges- of the sexes. Little boys can grow to be old aicfi or old women, just as they choose. Oeorge Francis Train, one of the most remarkable old women of the age, was once a little boy, but little girls are uot allowed to become old men. and as few of them wish to become old Wo- men they have little chance to work out glorious achievement. Girls are divided into two classes, the homely and the beautiful. By beau- tiful girls I mean the sort of girls von mean. Beautiful girls, know they arts beautiful, and homely ones think they arc. L never heard of an instance where one girl really thought another was beautiful I never see a beautiful girl without a strong desire to take her in my arms and kiss her. but this feel- ing is not reciprocated. This is anoth- er proof of the defects in modern fcmaltf education. IT is no doubt wrong, but it is per- fectly natural, to laugh at a certain man in Kiply, This unhappy person wan about to be married, and so distressed was he at the prospect that be took two ounces of laudanum to avoid the calami- ty- But the expectant bride (who was probably a promptly on hand with a doctor, and the poor crea- ture was pumped into a fit condition fof the alter: Only a fortnight before he tried to bang himself, but was saved for the joys of the honeymoon by time- ly cutting down. This wretched gentle- man had better give it up so and sub- mit to his fate, for he can no more es- cape the noose than could honest Jack Bunsby after he Was led captive by Mrs. McStinger. I know a great, overgrown, first-raffl man in his place, engaged in the nier- chantilo business, who, one morning, with a pencil in hand and a quill pen behind his ear, called out to his partner, Bill, what is John Stuplebean's first name T' And he never discovered hid mistake until lie began to write it, when ho forgot his last name, and, with the same unconncionsncHs, s.mg out, Ex- cuse me, Billy, but I'v forgot John Stuplebcan's last name now Tho roar of laughter which ensued restored his memory. iNEWSPAFERr iNEWSPAFERr
