She wore a pair of line stockings, in which there was little warmth, while her feet were covered with thin, fancy shoes. The only protection on her head was a small blue, velvet bonnet, which covered a few inches on the top; and from undcr-nealh this protruded an abundance of curls and frizzes. The day was cold and windy, and tho child was shivering from head to foot. The mother drew near the fire to thaw out the poor little martyr, and as I watched the child's purple face and numb little hands, and thought of the suffering she was enduring, I wondered that a roeither would so sacrifice her child's comfort for the 'sake of a vain desire to have her appear stylishly Ladies Jerseys worth $1 25 for to the number of days absent.

A fashionable young mother of my acquaintance is grieving to-day over the loss of an only and loved child, a little girl three years of age. It wassaidthat she died of pneumonia, bid had they said "died from exposure while fashionably dressed," it would haw been the simple truth. She was a Ik autiful child, and tho mother was so vain of her lovolv appearance that she spent most of her time in making showy clothes for tho little one. After being exposed to the cold one day, while dressed in her utterly unsuitable' clothes, she was taken dangerously ill at night, and died in two days' time. There is many a mother who has not the courage, to dress her children in a sensible, comfortable manner, simply because she is afraid they will be criticized.

If her neighbor's boy wears tight knee pantaloons, and her neighbor's little daughter's dresses come only to the knees, leaving their extremities to suffer with cold, why, hers must do likewise, or edse stiller the criticism of her more fashionable neighbor! It is the duty of parents, so far as it is in their power, to lay the foundation for strong, vigorous constitutions in their children. This cannot be done if the healthy growth of their bodies is checked by severe colds and diseases produced by exposure to the cold. Children's winter clothes should bo made of warm, substantial material. Far better spend the money in keeping the body warm and preventing disease, than te spend it for medicine and doctor's bills. Particularly should mothers protect well their extremities.

Have warm, woolen and long, heavy leggins to protect the feet and legs. Let the cloaks and overcoats extend to the shoe tops. Protect the girls' heads with soft woolen hoods that extend down over the neck; and the boys' caps should be so arranged as to furnish protection to their necks and cars. Knit the mittens with long wrists, so there will bo no air holes for the cold to get to the arm. Act'c Bums, in Country Gentleman.

Pretty Philadelphia Girls. The beautiful Philadelphia women, from four to live o'clock each afternoon, can be seen in vast numbers on the popular thoroughfare Chestnut street. The complexion of the women here I sneak of those under thirty is as soft, clear and roseate as a child's. An intelligent physician here conversing on the subject said the reason that Philadelphia women were handsomer than (ho women of other cities was from the fact that they did less lacing. Lacing, ho said, compressed the liver so that its functions are deranged and the bile, instead of legitimately aiding digestion as it should, is thrown into the venous circulation, producing the sallow complexion so common among our American women.

The female gymnasts and equestriennes are noted for their fine, clear complexion, which is attributed to the fact that their profession precludes lacing.
