Md you ever observe how, after a woman has had a violent ontbreak of temper, and lost her head altogether, raising the demons generally, she frequenüy has a bilious attack? She attributes the headache, suffering and sickne68 to every cause but the right one. She thinka she has eaten something that disagreed with her, or that she has "taken cold," and it has struck into her intemal organs in 6ome mysterious, hazy way. You would not dare teil her of course, but it was the fit of rage that produced the bilious attack. She flew off her head entirely in a fury; her soul was like a black boiling pool, casting up poisonous slirne front tho bottom. Her brain was in such a disordered state that the nervons stimulus it ordinarily 6ends to the nerves was all dried up. Then the 6yrapathetic nerve md other nerves that control the digestión could not work at all. They were weak and flaccid, the stomach could not work, the liver could not act, and the silly woman who flew into a rage has a fit of illness or sick headache. See? Well, if you do, remember that bad temper causes biliousness. Then if in her uncomfortable condition the woman intoxicates herself on tea the ill effect is doubled. Tea in the quantities in which so many women swallow it works deadly injury to the nerves, the digestión and the complexión. It is a 8ad sight to meet in public conveyances and on the streets elegantly dressed ladies, whose attire three continents have been levied on to complete, with cross, withered, wizened, sonr facfis. Th clnthiner is a dream of beauty, the face above it is so indecenl that it ought to be ashainerl to show itself in public. Tea and temper have done it all, my sisters- nearly all, thai is. These are the women who have nothing else to do than to care for the things of the body. They deck it out with the wealth and art of the ages, but all only serves to show off the ugly faces the more. Beauty is from within outward. A sweet, loving woman nature, an innocent soul that thinks no evil, that does not carp at or criticise a sister woman, a strong, gentle, self controlled spirit, around this center infallibly will grow an agreeable face. Throw aaide tea and temper, keep your body clean and free to move as it will, take abundant exercise in the open air and sunshine, do all the good you can to every human being, and I give you my word of honor that you will become a beautiful woman. This is my sermón. Why should women care to turn the heads of men? A fashion column I have lately read informs us that now no self respecting woman will appear on the street in a dress that does not touch the ground all around, and even traü a little in the back. Will I do this? No; not if every friend I have stops speaking to me. I won't do it, and this is my declaration of independence. Let those wear the nasty long gowns who like, and grow weak kneed, pigeon toed and splay footed in the effort to avoid climbing up their skirts when they walk. I value the use of my feet above the fashion of my gown. Long dresses in the house are beautiful and artistic; outdoors they are a horror and a disease breeder. Let those who will sweep up and carry into their homes upon their persons all the nameless filth of American streets. I won't. By all the gods, no! Airs. West Miller, of Indianapolis, hai become the owner of The Cabinet Maker, a trade paper devoted to the interests of the furniture men of that city. She has edited the paper several years, and haa done so well at it that she now has confidence enough in herself to buy it. Mrs. Mary B. Willard writes to The Woinan's Journal that the great gain to an American girl in finishing her education abroad is the marvelous iinprovement in her manners, the increased consideration she is taught to show to women older than herself, and the low, sweet, cultured voice in which she learns to speak habitnally. "For with every loud conversation with her friends in the street or railway car soine hative inhabitant will murmur under his breath, 'Americans!' " A certain newspaper announces the death of Mrs. Amelia Townsend McTyere, the "relict" of old McTyere. Oh, dear! To think a woman should ever live to be spoken of as some old chump's "relict!" It is enough to make a girl forswear matrimony. Two women have lately patented inventions that ought to be worth something. One is a combined waist and skirt by Camille Caen, of New York. If this is a successfnl device those who know the bother of putting on basque and skirt 365 times a year will appreciate it. The other promising invention is by Elizabeth Sthreshley, of Austdn. Tex. , and is a typewriting machine for the blind. Many women have become snccessfni professional photographers and have opened galleries of their own. A London woman has an establishment where every part of the picture making is done by women. In one of the most fashionable suburbs of Cincinnati Mrs. Laura Aldrich, a handsome, highly cultivated lady, has a photograph gallery, and is meeting with flattering success. She is able from the proceeds of her business to take delightful vacation trips in summer and otherwise provide for herself in the best style. More and more in all parts of the world women are coming to take part in school management. On the school board even of Stockholm, in Sweden, are four women. The school board of Nottingham, England, has three women members. And lady school trustees are becoming so common in American cities as not to excite much remark. This is eminently fitting. Even those who see no reason for general woman suffrage must recognize the propriety of women's having a voice in school management.
