A nice bonnet adds much to the beauty of the female face, which fact can be made c...

We do not think it out of place for us, as the conductor of a public jour nal, to give occasionally a bit of kind advice to the ladies. We are now going to speak of a fault that is prac ticed by many who will no doubt read this short article. We mean the con temptible and health-destroying prac tice of squeezing up the waist in or der to mako it appear small. Now, young ladies, please, for your own ben efit, heed what we tell you: A small waist does not add to the beauty of a form which nature never intended to be thus distorted. It may attract the attention of men, but only to be made a subject of just criticism. No man of sense can admire a girl more be cause of an unnatural, waspish waist. And especially does such a waist look out of proportion since the adoption of hoops. We know that this tight lacing is th...

The ancient Romans wero accus tomed to place the busts of their dis tinguished ancestors in the vestibules of their houses, that they might .be continually reminded of their noble deeds. They supposed that a recol lection of their il I ustrious virtues would lead to an imitation of the same by all the living members of their house bold. There .is no doubt that the in fluence of this practice was most hap py upon the living, awakening in many breasts high and noble aspirations. At any rate history records the names of many renowned Romans who de scended from the families where this custom, was observed. The young grew up to reverence the worthies whose statues they daily saw, and to emulate the virtues which gave their ancestors such lasting fame. We can easily conceive how the sight of these images, as the young men went out and came ...
