HOW TO WNITE A LOVE STORY.

Amen, old, rich, and a poifact flight; A man that his young and debonnair ; And lo I the story that I will write. Bring me a Summery moonlit park, Bring me a house in a handsome square, Dnoe in the country, a kind of ark Of refuge for lovers; some mad despair, Duty, temptation, and griet and care. To take the edge off love's delight, I few odd people from here and there, And lo I the story that I will write. lriog me a trip in a treacherous bark, A wreck in the mideeas anywhere. 3ring me a duel, heaven save the mark I S'A reunited and happy pair, \ gown from Worth's for the bride to wear, And bring me a fate as dark as night, for all the bold, bad ones to share; SAndlo I.the story that I will write.

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887
,I151 US EJIOLD. E:lyingGlass??tre.-Glass is frequently said by servants to " fly of itself." It never flies from the thin to the thick part, but the reverse invariably. We once know a servant girl who said a richly cut sugar bowl of-a flanged shape had;flown, and she found the pieces inside it, so that by her experience glaes not only flies but jumps. Sudden. change of temperature causes flyage. For example, glass kept in a cold frosty pantry will fly when brought into a hot room, so a glass from a warm place will fly when Ice is put into it. Thick ice plates in glass should never be used, nor should Ice plates be touched by a warm hand when in use. It is beet to put them upon a china pinto. China dishes, or even the common earthen. ware, should never be put into the oven or upon the hot plato. Warm water, not hot, will make them suffliclently heated for use, Glass dishes should never have hot things placed upon them; flyage is greatly pro. vented if the dishes be warmed gradually....

Women in Business.-Business men and headsof government departments havesome-. tiies said to me that they'have tried.women .clerks, found them.unsatisfactory, and ,have given up the experiment. Their objections are,'that women afe inclincdto ask and ac cept.-favors, and to-excuse-themselves for shortcomings, and that they, the employers, 'fiid" it *difficult or unpleasant"tfo bring' women to time," and demand the exact and prompt performance by- them of- all their duties, such as would be required of a man in the same place. There is no excuse for any women who takes this line of action, when she hai secured work. She should know that every time she asks for a half hour's leave of absence, every time she comes into the office late, every time she excuses herself, with a smile, or worse yet, a tear, for some piece of carelessness, she is injuring not only. her own chances of earn ing a livelihood, but tlhse of all otherwomen who have to go out iinto the world to earn their bread. : -,...
