Then and Now. One hiindred years ago, girls were not allowed to attend any of the public schools of the country. When the first high school for girls was opened in Boston in 1815, there was such an outcry against the innovation, and so niany girls applied for admission, that after a year or so the scheme was abandoned, and was not again attempted until 1853. In 1774 the first academy for women was opened by Moravians in Pennsylvania ; in 1789 the first seminary for women in New England was inaugurated in New Bedford, Mass. ; and Mary Lyon, in 1836, founded a college for that state, on a broader basis than before attempted. Oberlin College was opened on the coeducational plan in 1833, and Antioch College in 1852. But these were innovations which met with much discussion and opposition even among women themselves. To-day, however, this prejudioe against the scientific education of women has nearly disappeared. Even the older and more conservative institutions, like Harvard and Columbia, are, if not opening their front doors to women, at least making side entrances, called annexes, whereby they rnay enter. Almost every college has already one or more women professors, or assistant professors. Even Harvard has admitted women as assistants in its astronomical department; while women, as Dean Rachel Bodley, of the Pennsyivania Woman's College, and Alice Freeman Palmer, of Wellesley, have held the positions of heads of colleges? Women scientists are receiving state and national government appointments. One woman is assistant at Washington ; others are engaged in taking meteorológica! obseryafions. Missouri's state entomologist is a woman. Michigan University has several women professors and assiütants in the departments of microscopical botany, anatomy, bacteriology, pathology, and obstetrics. In other colleges can be found women at the head of the departments of botany, ehemistry, etc; and the principal of the Denver school of Mines is a woman. In ethnology and archseology shine such bright names as Alice Fletcher, Erminie Smith, and Amelia B. Edwards. Many of these have received high college degrees, and are "fellows" of distinguished scientific societies in this country and in Europe. Many women here and in England are acting or qualifying themselves to act, as druggists and dispensers of medicines. - New England Magazine. By invitation of Eev.

Since birth my baby had running sores all over his head, and the doctors said that he must die, for they could not heal them. 1 used every thing I ever heard of, but it was no good. He got so bad that he would not nurse. My husband's sister told me to try Sulphur Bitters, as she had great faith in them. I used a bottle and the sores commenced to heal. After using two bottles more, the sores all healed, and I considered my baby saved.
