flDteccHaneou9i Londing a Hand— About forty years a-:o several haulers were employed in carry ing pig iron from Braymbo to Queoiisforry. Among the number was one William Griffiths, who is still alive.

HOUSEHOLD. Flying Glassware-— Glass is frequently said by servants to ' lly of itself.' It nover (lies from tho.thin to tho thick part, but the' reverse invariably. Wo onco knew a sorvnnt girl who said a richly cut sugar bowl of a ilanged shape bad flown, and sho found the pieces inside, it, bo that by her experience . glass not only flics but jumps. Sudden change of temperature cansos fly.age. For example, glass kept in a cold frostv 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 ylass should never be used, nor should ico plates bo touched' by a warm baud when in use. ; It is best to put them upon a china plate. China dishes, or oven the common earthen ware, should never be put into tho oven or upon the hot plate. Warm watecy not hot, will mak'p. them sufficiently heated for use.

HaDies' Column* Women in Business- — Business men and heads of government departments have some times said to me that they havo tried women clerks, found them unsatisfactory, nnd have given up tho experiment. Their objections are, that womon are inclined to ask nnd ac cept favors, and to excuse thomsohes for shortcomings, and that they, tho employers, find it difficult or unpleasant to ?? bring womon to time,' and demand tho exact and prompt performance by thorn of all their duties, such as would be required of a man in tho. snrno nlnna. Thoro is no excuso for any womon who tokos this lino of action, when she has secured work. She should know that avery time sho asks for a half hour's loaTe of absence, every time she aomes into the office late, every timo she excuses herself, with a smile, or worso yet, a tear, for somo piece of earolessnces, she is injuring not only her own chances of earn ing a livelihood, but those of all other women who havo to go out into the world to. earn tli...
