these points east and west of us would indi
cate a more general appearance, but by re

enemy to the cotton plant in other localities
of our county. It is to be hoped that these
gentlemen are mistaken, and that instead
of the caterpillar it is the grass worm. We
might add, however, that tho rainy season
with which we have been visited is propitious
for tho appearance of the caterpillar.

and weather her face, including her nose,
has become decidedly rubicund.
Her "amber hair," which she used to
wear flowing over her shoulders, in the style
she favored in her earlier novels, is cut
short, pushed tiack from her forehead and
confined with a narrow ribbon. On festive
occasions she wears white velvet, a
favorite material of hers, judging from

it is said that she has sunk most of the large
sums that she has received for her later

She is also extravagantly fond of dogs,

CHRIBTINE NILSSON AT HOME.
The Hospitality Dispensed by the
London, July 3.—The home of Christine
Nilsson in Kensington court is one of the
most luxurious bonbonnieres in London. It
may really be looked upon as her bridal
bower, for previously she occupied a house
in Belgravia which, though very fine and
expensive, was not half so charming as the
beautiful newt in which the nightingale now
reposes. I made one of the diva’s company
at her last reception, and passed an hour qr
two of that unalloyed enjoyment which it is
occasionally given us mortals to experience.
The world renowned songstress received me
with engaging and hospitable warmth at
the door ofner drawing room, an apartment
crowded with artistic furniture richly
carved and gilded, embroidered draperies
and an almost indescribable quantity of rare
bibe,lots. A gilded cabinet bearing her
monogram is quite filled with exquisite
ancient fans, several of which are historic,
having belonged to Queens and Princesses: a
Chickering concert grand piano is partially
covered with an unusually fine China crape
shawl, embroidered in colors, trimmed with
a multi-colored fringe and looped up here
and there with rare old silver clasps.
Sculptured ivories, burnished enamels, an
ancient ormulu clock with its face sot round
with costly crystals, which sparkle almost
like diamonds, a marble bust of the diva
standing on a buhl table under the graceful
foliage of a palm, and at least a score of
photographs of crowned heads, whose
sovereign fingers have offered tjhc se tributes,
with their autographs, to Christine Nilsson,
are a few of the many interesting objects
upon which the charmed eye of the visitor
falls. The lovely Queen Mercedes of Spain,
the Empresses of Russia and Austria, the
Queens of Greece, Sweden and Norway,
the Princess of Wales, the Duchess of Edin
burg and many other great ladies have
given their photos and autographs
and phrases of admiration to the
celebrated singer. Right well and happy
does the celebrated songstress look to-day
in her dark blue gown of satin-faced surah,
made without train, high neck and with the
elbow sleeves which show to such advantage
the white and shapely arms. A touch of
pink ribbon and a voluminous cascade of fine
old iwiint lace from an admirable 1 ackground
for the wonderful par are of sapphires and
diamonds with which her ears, neck, fingers
and arms are adorned. She looks hand
somer now than she did a score of years ago
when Cavanel painted that exquisite full
length of her as Ophelia which hangs yonder.
“I was young and poor then,” she says,
stroking her now plump cheeks, and by the
use of the word “poor” in the ser.s l of “thin,' 1
showing how great an influence her
American connection has had in forming
her English speech: for in England “poor”
and “lean” are not considered identical in
meaning. AVith a hearty admiration that
has truth ringing in every syllable, Chris
tine speaks of her fondness for America;
and her gratification in the knowledge that
she is liked there. She belongs to the
Scandinavian race, a people who, more
perhaiis than any other, assimilate well
with our native-born population; and one
can quite easily believe that if she were but
one of the many simple Swedish women
who inhabit America, instead of being one
of the greatest prima donnas who ever lived,
she would like, even almost as much as now
she does, the free air and the socially noble
institutions of the United states.
The fair Christine is now the Countess
Casa de Miranda, and I was interested in
the personality or her happy spouse. The
Count is a slender man of middle age, of
aDout Nilsson’s own height, with dark com
plexion, and oyes which require a circular
rimless glass stuck in one of them only.
Immeasurably proud, and naturally so, the
good gentleman seems to be of his renowned
and fascinating wife; and the pleasant little
daughter, who nas brought them together,
flits from one parent to the other, as joyous
as a bird in the sunshine. She is quite
Spanish in her coloring, and though she has
fine black eyes, would scarcely be called a
lieauty. With the joy of happy motherhood
and wifehood gleaming brightly from her
sapphire eyes,Nilsson herself is a beauty;
and her voice is the angel’s prayer it ever was.
Am I not to be envied! I who write to you,
sitting on a gold divan, by Nilsson’s side as
she sings Schubert’s Serenade, Nettie Car
penter accompanying her on the violin, and
Ganz at the piano! I will hear no lesser
vocalizing after that exquisite dream of
melody, and so depart, down the goblins
tapestried oak staircase, past the morning
room in claret velvet, the dining room in
Spanish leather, the quaint hall with stained
glass windows, in which stand three men
servants in livery, and then out into the
Crosaic world of spoken speech, the Queen’s
ighways of Piccadilly, Bond street aud the
Strand. Olive Logan.

Advice to Mothers.

teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving
the child from pun and the little cherub
