be had except for children of larger growth An overcoat for a boy was an unusual ury years ago among people of erate means Many well parents were firmly convinced that to clothe their children warmly was to render them and of constitution In point of fact children are less fitted to resist cold than older people and therefore require to be more warmly clad just as young and tender plants call for protection against frost which hardier shrubs da not need Moreover our children dwell habitually in a lower temperature than we do Place a thermometer on the floor in a heated house and especially if the heater is in the side of the room U will be found to register several degrees colder than when suspended at the usual elevation of a few feet above the floor In this lower and colder stratum of air our little children playing on the floor spend much of their time and not unfrequently are able in the same room which their elders find pleasantly heated pf late years however the necessity of flannel is beginning to be generally under- stood so that now sensible mothers clothe their children in woolen undergarments from neck to heel Manufacturers of under- wear now furnish sizes small enough for babes of six months while less expensive merino shirts also come in the smaller sizes Even the infant whose age is counted by days is provided for in dainty knitted en shirts high necked and long-sleeved Boys are as warmly clad fathers i Their clothes are made of the same heavy cloths and where the trousers come only to the knee they are supplemented by flannel drawers and thick ribbed stockings Small boys yet in kilts wear trousers to match under the skirt and the overcoat is long enough to cover all but a few inches of tbe skirt Leggings are often added to this out- outfit

that found on tables in villages and cities There is no good reason why an excellent food caunot be afforded on farms as well as in large towns Most farmers might live well and be at no more expense than they are at ent Most af the articles that pertain to good living are or can be produced on farms with very trouble or expense The water afforded by springs and deep wells is superior to that supplied by the in cities Fresh butter pure milk and eggs can at all times be obtained and these deservedly rank among luxuries They are articles generally hard to obtain in large towns even by persons of wealth At most times in the year there are fowls fit to be killed as occasion may re- quire During the spring there is veal and son will do some trifling thing like extirpating a cancer or

conviction that at least one third of tie illnesses for which he had been called to prescribe were purely imaginary In such cases he had found it to his patient's interest as well as his own not to

They had enough before the baby came great pity he bos such a wife but we must try to lift the burden from his shoulders the blessed man I What do you say to a donation my you are so The very thing that I was going to propose you know While these worthy fadies are discussing the minister and his we will peep Into the parsonage Mrs Carter the minister's wife is Ing the cradle In it lies Rupert a sickly teething baby the pet of the household Louise the eldest daughter a ing high spirited girl of eighteen ts ripping on antediluvian pongee dress I declare mother it is a sin a ful sin to deny papa an increase in his ry What do you suppose Mrs Weeks said to me the other people thought it very strange that Philip and Ned do not go to church this fan and we ought to be very careful about the example we set be- fore our people As if the boys wouldn't be glad to go to church if they had decent I declare I don't know what we are going to do for those At that moment the two boys in question burst noisily into the room Mother mother we're going to hove a donation next week Jim Weeks said so Don't you suppose they'll give us some new Tom Podgers and the other fel lows laugh at us and call us Old Patch I go to school another added Ned and wear this old and the little boy threw off his ed jacket with an air of disgust My son what did you say asked Rev Adolphus Carter solemnly thrusting head into the I said pa And if it darned I'd like to know what it replied the young rebel pointing to numerous darns on the despised garment Pa groaned mildly and retreated into the study to Indulge in unseemly mirth at his son's wit If I was bim I'd give them a piece of my mind minister or continued Ned sold his mother In duo time the night appointed for tbe donation party came It was clear and cloudless the young Carters hearts beat fast with expectation Mr and Mrs Podgers came first They brought a bushel of small sized potatoes and an elaborate for the ister Deacon Weeks kept a grocery and he brought a firkin of crackers anil half of a small cheese His wife contributed a pair of slippers to the minister's wardrobe Her daughter brought him a watch case and a tidy for his study chair The house wits crowded all Plainville was there and every one was blessed with a good appetite There is cake enough in the pantry to last them a said Mrs Weeks com to the latest comer a plain little woman

Tom winked knowingly across the table at little Phil who trod on tail ine to communicate his delight to Ned who did not seem to take the I have received an invitation to exchange with the Rev Elisha Stone at and as I have the means now I think I will accept I as well spend the week with my friends on the said Mr ter the next day Louise assisted in the Impunity the heaviest or coldest winds known in these latitudes The use of leggings has become general for small children in cold weather The fashionable style is that kind of double zephyr that in shade will match the coat Occasionally they are made from or velvet but these ore more expensive and less comfortable than the zephyr Those for babies In conches are long enough to reach the and often have feet attached Fortunately for children who suffer from earache bonnets and quaint hoods to match the dress are in fashion this winter These protect the ears from cold and are red by prudent mothers who fear that troublesome and painful disease of hood ulceration of tbe ear which is often duo to careless exposure o cold winds The true secret of health is exercise in the open air in all weathers excepting rain or sleet taking care to be well wrapped up from the cold Infants too young run and play are best indoors according to high medical authority whenever the is between Fahrenheit or the sun Is not The British Medical Journal says that the practice of wheeling children about in perambulators in cold weather sitting or reclining in one position without exercise is particularly harmful We would earnestly appeal to mothers to put aside all feelings of vanity or what is miscalled natural pride and cover the arms neck and legs of their children as a simple sanitary precaution High frocks long sleeves and warm stockings should be worn out of doors hats which cover the head there Is in America Miss Leo is twenty-six years old and her husband has passed forty His first was the Russian a Yenus who died of dyspepsia in Pittsburgh in 1880 Before the season ended married a Circassian beauty of Milesian She died last mer and before the Barnum show ed its season the tatooed widower was head over heels in love with the fascinating Spanish bearded lady Although ed she possessed all the coyness of her sex and Mr Moffitt was compelled to all the eloquence which once made him famous as a blower to persuade her to accept him Old John Geary the most skillful in the is the step father of Miss Leo and gave her away Miss Leo wanted to have her beard shaved off in honor of the occasion but Mr who is of a practical turn of mind opposed it on the ground that she might not raise another crop in which event her value as a freak would be totally destroyed Mr and Mrs went to New York last evening After the ceremony Mr Geary a freak of fifty years standing invited of his most intimate acquaintances home to dine with him Mr Geary's present wife is professionally known as Mile Cathlene the skeleton woman When in showing condition she weighs seventy pounds and as her husband graphically expressed it there isn't enough meat on her to feed a Scotch terrier Now however selle Cathlene is what Mr Geary is pleased to call

even a summer at the White Mountains but if he could not it he would be content with a visit to Brattleboro with the contents of Deacon Weeks's hat which was passed around at the donation in his pocket He's as blind as a bat to our said Tom once more forcibly than ly expressing the trutu of the case All was electrified the next Sunday with seeing Louise march up the broad aisle to the front

orange leaves shading off to scarlet nearly covered it Ned was more gorgeous if possible in a twilled cashmere with Its mous high colored palm leaves Louise was not at all particular in ing in making

anything so said Mrs Weeks to her husband after church Perhaps they to wear you know the little fellows haven't been to church lately Who Mrs Weeks thought of what she had said to Louise with regret I wish you had voted to raise Mr she said timidly Deacon Weeks was a dull plodding est kind-hearted man very set in his own way but when an idea once entered his brain it worked like yeast until something came from it It was so with his wife's remark he thought about it Something else happened before the ister got home Louise had a party She Invited old and young from far and near warm as possible On coming from the street both boots and stockings should be changed and if the feet are cold a warm should be used for a few minutes The exquisite pain of chilblains could be saved to many children by the use of hot water for hands and feet Rubber overshoes which may be had in the smallest size are a necessity for every school boy or girl and the gossamer proof will save many times the cost in tors bills The woolen waterproof ever thick becomes damp in a heavy rain and bos no chance to dry among the wet wraps in a crowded cloak room but must be worn home in that state at the great risk of taking cold Warm clothing at night as im- portant as warm clothing during the day Delicate children should sleep in flannel Canton flannel is heavy enough for those of more robust constitutions Every one who has had the care of ren is aware of the tendency to kick off the bed clothes a practice most productive of colds and croup For this reason drawers are better than for all except babies and for them the gowns should be long enough to come down well over the feet The style of night drawers with feet at- like a stocking is an excellent one for small children We know one
