About Chinese Women. Irs. 8. L. Baldwin, the missionary to China, lectured in Philadelphia recently. Of the women in China she said : " The women of China are divided into two classes the bound-footed, who are the ladies, and the large-footed, who are the common class. The latter cany the burdens, do all the drudging and out door work, while their husbands do noth ing. When a little girl is born the pa rents thiuk the gods are angry with them, and they hold a consultation whether 6he shall be allowed to live or not If she is, when she arrives at the age of four years, they hold another consultation whether she shall be a bound-footed or a large foo:ed woman. If she is chosen to be bound-footed, she is not permitted to do anything, but if otherwise she has to be the family slave, I have seen a woman with four children strapped to her back and rowing a boat, while her husband laid in the cabin smoking his pipe. Girls have no choice of their husbands ; the young girl is sold by her par...

Locks and Keys. WiTEfcll the progress that has been maae oj Eociety lor its own protection, there has never yet, in all probability, been invented a loot that could not be picked or a key that could not be duplicated. In fact, it is doubtful -whether we have made so very much progress over the ancients, according to the researches of a writer in Chamber? MiseeUany.

THE STAGE BABY. BY CELIA LOGAN KELLOGG. The stage baby is thrust upon the stage s soon asit can walk and understand that it most not cry. lathe morning, instead of being sent to school, like other children, it is taken to the theatre to rehearse its "part." At night it is not allowed to sleep and build up a constitution for after life, but the weary puppet must go through its tricks before a crowd of whom it is afraid. The stage baby is forced to do without food for many consecutive hours, to be up late, to face storms, to en dure cold and fatigue, to tax its memory, and to be beaten if it forgets. - The applause of a great audience, so gratifying to men and women, is simply terryfyingto a child. The stage baby leads the life of grown up peo ple, undergoing the hardships of the hardest profession in the world, without any of the compensation which older the atricals experience, such as money, gifts, . applause and celebrity. The reward of a tage child is abuse. Its education is be g...

The Habit of Taking a "Nip." A city merchant of the old school re visiting the scene of his labors at the present day would certainly be a irood deal I SiartieO, and we fear scandalized, by various changes which could not fail to attract his attention. Admiration would mingle with his astonishment at the vast scale of modern transactions, the daring and versatile ingenuity with which plan's are conceived, arid the rapidity with which they are executed. But there would be another side of the picture. He would be painfully struck by a certain feverish ex citement observable in city life, and a growing tendency to disregard the line "ffhich separates legitimate business from sheer gambling. He would find that the 1 til disastrous conseqnenoes of reckless trad ing, which in his day would have brought uirate, are now recKoned among the ordinary and natural risks of commercial enterprise. And looking a little more cioseiy into the private habits of those who had succeeded him, he would ob...
