This shocked the Mnsanlnians, of course, and they were dreadfully jealous of the Empress. Her Majesty w aa. of course, unveiled, and they could see how handsome she was and how her fair skin contrasted with .their dusky complexion*. ltesides, she smiled and ap]H>are«l quite at her ease with the Hultan, sud such conduct wa* to them simply incomprehensible. There was uo precedent for it in a1! Tnrkey. The Empress tells with delight of her visit to the harem and her exploration of the beautiful gardens iu the .Sultan's grounds, which are justly claimed to be the loveliest in all Ku mj»e. For a week before she taw them hundreds of sen nuts were busy cleaning the place and assisting the gardeners in patting the gronnds in condition. Like everything else in Turkey, thev suffer terribly from neglect. Although they are visit«><l daily by the ladies of the harem, the Hultan himself take* very little interest in them, and the menials are allowed to do about as thee please. All the streets leading to the palace were cleaned so that the royal guests might not carry aw sr a arched passage way, and all attired in the most elaborate toilets. Their dresses had I teen made express lr for the occasion, and showed a remarkable rarietv of sty lee, some of them being of the latest Parisian order and others a compromise between the robe* of the Turkish lady of rank and those of the Western European. Much a sight in any capital in Europe except Constantinople would have been an impossibility. It was incongruous in tho lait degrec and the Empress, although she had come resolved to siiow surprise at nothing, could not repress a smile. Home of the dresses, as she learned afterward, cost as high aa 1*100 •Bch. The Bultanaa received the Empress in their palace, where a splendid re ccption fuel been prepared for her. nile expressed surprise, no less at the wonderful richness of their dr dan cs than at the priceless jewels of great size and punty which they wore on neck, arms and lingers. In the harem as well as in the Multana*' palace the Orthodox Ottoman garments are worn. although when the ladies go out. which they always do in carriages under es rort. more modern styles are affected \ ictoria Augusta sat on an exquisitely upholstered divan and chatted pleasantly fog an hour with the Hnltanas, while '•bony skinned Nubian slaves waited on them with refreshments. She hail a glimpse, ton, of souk* of the amusement* of the harem, aud the sweetest singers sang and the finest musician* played for lier gratification Like others who have lrau privilegi ti with a glimpse of the inner lift* of the seraglio, she noted the indolent lnxnry of the women, their lotc at friends and their passion for knowledge concerning the outer world She receive.I the impression that a majority of the women were comparatively happy aud contentAsl with their surrounding*, ambition and the qualities that I ..dong to higher intelligence being found among the Sultanas only.

The great toe yon nee is on a line with the arch of the foot, and should stand out separate from the others. ’I he ball of the foot aud the heel serve as two pillars to balauce the arch, which is a bridge to the body. Every step that we take that arch elongates like tin* springs of a buggy.

At the tables of how many farmers and mechanic*. I wonder, is the buckwheat breakfast gnu# iuto disgrace? We all readily can recall the time when countless multitudes of familie* bruke their fast of twelve hours, and faced the woik of a blustering winter’s day. with nothing but greasy buckwheat cake* ami molasses. Thee might almost os well have eaten saw-duiit. And what hail they for dinner? Halt pork and potatoes. And for aup-p* r? Potatoes and salt [Kirk for a change -eotnrttrues cold, and made luihitable with vinegar! Oh, I forgot the pie the everlasting Die. with its sugary center and it* leathery crnst -the one titillation of the palate that made life tolerable. Good I'read and butter or milk, abnmlanee of fruit, be. f. mutton, and nutritions puddings —a1! these things are within the reach of people who hare left the l ast. and at this time these sturdy Westerners are noted for tieing the most progressive farmers in the world; but they have <*ont something, and have not really l»een deemed necessary. Tile people have not real- i ized thai what they regarded as luxuries were necessaries, and that the food upon which they have depended for protection from a more rigorous climate, and for the repair of tho waste* of Jailor, ha* lieen altogether inadequate, aud is leaving them with blood impoverished and lungs tnber-culated. After taking into account all hereditary influences, upon which doctors place great stress in treating of the canoe of phthisis, insufficient nourishment is alike res|ionaible. In most instance* the deposit of tn-bercle and the inflammation to which it naturally gives rise lh directly traceable to poor food. There are many men who by a change of living render the tulsireles already do|*>-ited in their lungs harmless. Vitality become* so high in its power that it dominates tliene evil influences, and they live ont tolerably long life w ith enemies in their lungs that are rendered flowerless br the strength of the fluid that tights them. I have seen consumption cured anam and'agam by the Simple process of building up the forces of vitality through passive exercise in the ojien air and the supply of an abnmlanee of nutrition* food, aud have not tho least doubt that it can bs* prevented in most instances by the same mean*. No human being can long endure the draft mille uj*ou it by a cold climate and by constant Jailor, unless it ta well fed, well clothed, and well housed. Somewhere deterioration will show itself, and in all countries w here fieo-ple are poorly foil consumption decimates tim jiopulace. There should he bv this time some improvements in the »Vest and North in oonse |nonce of the increased intelligence of the people, but so long as so man v of them are unsettled, moving ami moving, h aving good place* vacant to be taken by ignorant, often filthr, foreign fiopu-lation, it is not likely that statistics will show much lea* tuberculosis for years to come. When we are sick we hire a physician who can live onlv bv people being sick. If we could hire doctors to keep us well, if a codo of ethics could be adopted that they would only W paid for preventing disease, and could lie permitted to prescribe for each family it* way of living, there would lie but little difficulty in mating from its stronghold that moat fatal aud persistent enemy of human life which we call consumption, but w hich is not, it tieing just the opposite. Consumptive* do not consume. which off era a ready example, are seen two small, round projections at the aide of th# bead.
