THE MIND DISEASED. An Aetam thy.y tam's Dev.s the aStjy of Uablaaeue Braeas. A walk through the female wards of the insane hospital with Dr. Fletcher is amusing, rather than saddening. Some sing him songs, others beg a bite from his dried and well-worn plug of tobacco, others are determined to dance with him, and all look on his coming with pleasure. They call him pet names, as "Uncle," "Doe" and "Pop sy." Sunday they hunt him for candy. -thers beg him to write home for them. Afew beg to be taken home. They cut some strange antics. Not long since a female patient on the up per floor kicked out the ward door panel, crept through, and at midnight, climbed the fireman's ladder to the loft, where, though it was dark as pitch, she crept about among the rafters and steam-pipes, until she came to the ele vator-well, seventy feet deep. She seized the wire cable, slid down two stories, and then got off onto the screen door, at least three feet from the cable. JHere she hung, with fingers and...

And when she sauntered down the lane and reached the linden tree. I thought I saw my coming fate, whose name was Kitty Lee. I had not spoken much of love, though often we had met And yet she answered something, once, I could not well forget; But she was fair and rosy, and I thought how nice 'twould be If, when she tied that apron on, the tie was meant for me. The summer sun was nestling down beyond the d'stant hills. One voice alone saluted us-the plaintive whip-poor-will's. I spoke about my loneliness, of tolls and cares that fret. And she, with soothing readiness, was glad that we had met. One knows not how such little words proceed from less to more. But, somehow, we came nearer than we ever stood before: And, when I saw the meaning that her beam ing face supplied. I found my arm was resting where I saw th...

THE DOCTRESS wha a (r Maseauae Has se ay About Her Hbtery. In England, as well as in the United States, the female physician is no longer a question to be discussed, but as Hegel has said, "reasonable because exist ing." New female physicians are re eeiving degrees every day, and begin ning the practice of the healing art in all the large cities of both countries. The information now comes from India that the Countess of Dufferin is earning unqualified praise for her plan for pro viding medical women to attend upon the large number of Hindoo women who die every year from insufficient medical assistance. For the establish ment in India of a medical training college for Indian women, funds and grants of land are asked for by a long list of English patrons. But in Germany, where the most con servatism exists in regard to female emancipation, the question of the fe male practitioner is met with many objections. A favorable view is seldom taken in any of the more influential periodicals ...

FIFTY YEARS AGO. :as When a Boers Lif. Was Not as aer7 N It Is Now. The winter apparel of boys even fifty years ago would be an interesting sub ject. We lack the pen of General Oliver to do it justice. The change from those days to the present is some thing wonderful. India-rubber boots and shoes were not then invented; great coats were among rare things; boys' clothes were generally made over from dad's dress coat: trousers were cut down and traveled through successive boys, and finally cut up to patch and piece other clothes. Boy tailors were unheard of. Seamstresses passed from house to house and fixed over the boys' clothes, cut, down and made over,' etc If a boy 'ad a grandmother, he could count "perhaps on a pair of woolen mite; otherwise he went without. To pur 'yhase such things was little thought of. In the houses no furnaces, few stoves, bedrooms as cold and colder than barns nowadays; warming-pans for beds at night in constant use, as the bed clothes were like two cakes o...

e LOVE'S OPPORTUNITY. Early they came, yet they were come too late. The tombh was empty; in the misty dawn Antge:s at watching, but the Lord was gone. Beyond earth's clouded daybreak far was He fleyond the need of their saul ministry. Regretftul stood the three, with doubtful bre:,St: The.r gifts unheeded and In vain their quest. The spiees-were they wasted? Legend saith That. Clung abroad on April's gentle breath, They course the earth, and evermore again In spring's sweet odors they come back to men. The tender thought? Be sure he held it detar; He came to them with words of highest cheer, And mighty Joy expelled their hearts' brief fear. Yet happier that morning. happier yet. I count that other woman In her home. Whose feet Impatient all too soon had come; Who ventured chill disfavor at the feast, 'Mid critic's murmurs sought that lowliest Guest, Broke her rare vase, Its fragrant wealth out poured. And gave lier gift aforehand to her Lord. -Sophie Winthrop Weitzel, in Athlntic Mo...
