Advice to tiirlg. The girls must feel as if they were getting more than their fair share of ad vice. Whatever isn't politics in most of the newspapers is advice to girls, and there is hardly any-thin# on this earth that the average girl wouldn't rather have than advice. But they must have it, just because there are so many people kicking around the world— not girls themselves—who know exactly what girls ought to do and never miss an opportunity to tell them all about. No one who reads the newspapers at all can fail to stumble avery day upon three or four columns of advice to girls about how they should learn to oook, and what they should do it for, and some remarks about what a tremen dous fascination there is in a good cook, and how such can easily gather in all the good husbands and many of the bad ones, and more stuff like that. This may with neat propriety be follow ed by some advice on the intricacies of dish-washing, explaining how the dish rag may be wrung out with the most p...

In some—yes in many respects is the contrast very great between this and our Wadena county I left yesterday in its agricultural aspects. This is the principal dairy county of Wisconsin. Of cheese alone it pro duced over 3,000,000 pounds last year. Here we see diversified farming. In the fields of some we see wheat, oats, corn, rye, barley, potatoes, clover, timothy, hops, pastural lands with litrds of milch cows, colts, calves and flocks of sheep. Here the farmer has something to sell at all seasons of the year. Here we see every evidence of prosperity and success in the neat farm houses, barns and fences. There is nothing like s...

A STRANGE OLD WOMAS. The Startling: Scenes Which Took Place One Night in a Quiet Household. Correspondence PbiladelRhia Telegraph. The quiet Greek village of Xadekem, on the Asiatic shore of the Sea of Mar mora, some four miles from here, was the scene the other night of wild excite ment and alarm. At dusk while the family of Mr. B., a respectable English resident, were about sitting down to a comfortable supper, a knock, timidly repeated after an instant was heard at the door. The wind was howling 'around the angles of the house, and as Mr. B. opened the door a gust of sleet and rain took him in the face and almost pre vented him from perceiving his noctural visitor. It was a wretched woman bent nearly double with age, and clothed scantily with filty rags, who in quiver ing accents, begged food and shelter for the night. After some hesitation the spirit of ihe Good Samaritan prevailed over the natural suspicions aroused by such a visit. Hot food and drink were given to the wanderer...

The Largest Hotel in the World. San Francisco News Letter. Four years and a half ago the Palace hotel began "running $5,000,000 had been spent in is construction and equip ment, and it then seemed as if such an enormous outlay could never be recov ered, much less be made to come back with interest. Wiseacres by the le gion predicted the speedy collapse of the vast enterprise, and even far-seeing business men shake their heads (loubt ingly. The palace, they said, was a town in itself San Francisco already possessed several first-class and very large hotels to erect another on such an enormous scale would be money thrown away, notwithstanding the fond ness of California for living in hotels and the vast stream of visitors which constantly flows into the city. The projectors of the palace, however, thought different. They were men of boundless energy and enterprise, and— a very important item—were possessed of great wealth. They were convinced that such an institution as the palace cou...
