twelve pearls of historic record dating back for
two centuries. They were brought from France
with the Huguenots. These pearls are set around

the old masters—certainly the “ latest agony.”
The new sensational book, “Woman m Bat
tle,” or the experiences of Madame Velasquez as
a spy, a soldier, and an officer of the Confeder
ate army, is now ready for the press, the plates
being all electrotyped. We have been favored
with a sight of the very unique table of con
tents. The book is written by a distinguished
Northern writer, and Mark Twain is reported to
have said that it will be the book of the season.
One of its most important features is the revela
tion it makes of the manner in which the secret
service of the Confederacy was carried on.
The friends of the projected Atlanta Free Edu
cational and Industrial School seem to be thor- |
oughly in earnest. Mrs. Westmoreland’s and j
Mrs. Gabbett's letters on the subject are full of j
feeling and purpose, and we trust that they will |
succeed in enthusing others of their sex, and I
in securing the sincere co-operation of all benev- j
olent and public-spirited citizens. These ladies,
however, must be content to begin on a small j
scale, as did Mrs. Hodges, who, on a small pri- j
vate foundation in New York, built up the flour- |
ishing Free Industrial and Domestic Training |
School for Girls. *
Furs.—In furs this winter, the long, lovely
boas are the most fashionable. We saw at Mrs.
Lewis Clarke’s, elegant sets of real mink from
twenty to thirty-five dollars, and lovely As-
trachan sets from eight to fifteen dollars.
Ties of twilled silk or crepe de Chine, lace-
trimmed, are the most fashionable. Neckties
trimmed with lace are more elegant than those all
lace, unless the lace is very choice. Real or im
itation, antique and point are the kinds most in
vogue. The lovely Shetland shawls and scarfs
of white fleecy wool are very light and pretty to
wear around the neck, and are uniformly becom
ing, as is also the cream-tinted lace, imitation
point and thread for scarfs.
Hats and Bonnets.—Birds of every color still
perch upon coquettish little hats of pearl-giay,
brown, or cameo-tinted felt, or nestle as natural
as life among the clusters of tea-roses and au
tumn leaves and trailing sprays of ivy that adorn
the “loves of bonnets” displayed in many tempt
ing shop windows, and so becomingly worn by
our bright-eyed belles. We saw at Mrs, McCor
mick’s a perfect Eden of lovely flowers, with
rare birds and costly plumes. We were particu
larly attracted by a beautiful snowbird, with soft
white feathers striped and tipped with brown
and black, a lovely brown and a splendid green
humming-bird, all among clusters of full-blown
scarlet and blush roses and bunches of creamy
At the opening of the season, it was said that
only ostrich tips, one, two and three, would
adorn the hats and bonnets, combined with the
profuse trimmings of brilliant-colored flowers;
but we notice in all the most fashionable shops,
and worn by the leading “ton,” the long, grace
ful, curling ostrich plumes of every delicate
shade imaginable, winding half around the crown
and drooping down to the shoulders. We saw a
“love of a hat” of pearl-gray French felt. trimmed
with self-colored velvet and a long, curling plume
of the same exquisite shade, fastened with a large

An old lady living in Ohio lost the companion

with a spoon than a man can bring in with a
shovel, and in this country we have abundantly-
proved the truth of it. The waste begins by-
leaving butter on the plate, throwing good bread

manhood, of womanhood, in the miserable
waste of life itself.

- Lora and Dobla, of Cuthbert ask: “Is it wrong
j for a young lady to correspond with a young
man who has completely won her heart, if par
ents object—the young man being a perfect gen
tleman in every respect?” ... If the parents
have good and sufficient reasons for objecting,
it is certainly wrong to disregard their wishes.
Their judgment in such matters is better than
that of the young folks, and daughters should
be controlled by them in these matters.
A Subscriber, Augusta, asks: “Should a young

Is your temperance column open for discussion

There is no necessity for a card. The simple

’ Aleck, Charleston, asks: “What is the origin
of the phrase, ‘ Mind your P’s and Q’s ?’” . . .
It has various suppositious origins, but to our
mind it was due to the caution necessarily given
to printer apprentices to be cautious in distribu
ting “pi,” that they did not mistake a p for a q
or a q for a p. Doubtless, the phrase at first was,
and should be now, “Mind your p’s and q’s,”
and its wider application is, Be cautious and ob
servant; don’t be deceived by resemblances;
discriminate between things alike yet different.

Dan Green, Louisville, Ky., says: “Please
give your opinion of Dean Swift.” . . . Your
name suits you; and surely you take us to be
green too, if you think we can give a correct
opinion of Jonathan Swift in a brief paragraph.
We are soon to have a new life of him by a prom
inent publishing house, and when we read it,
we may tell you what we think of him. We know
that much reproach and scandal has been heaped
on Swift, in opposition to which we refer you to
the following in the handwriting of Addison, on
the fly-leaf of one of his own works, which he
sent to Swift: “To Dr. Jonathan Swift, the most
agreeable companion, the truest friend, and the
greatest genius of his age, this Book is presented
by his most Humble Servant, the Authour.”
Sigma, Savannah, says: “I’ve heard that the
two lines in Sir Walter Scott’s well-known apos
trophe to woman,
“ When pain and anguish wring the brow,

are borrowed. Can you give me any informa
tion on the point ?” . . . After Scott wrote his
“Marmion,” Henry I. T. Drury, a student of
King’s College, Cambridge, over the signature
of “ Detector,” wrote to Scott, accusing him of
plagiarizing from Vida’s Latin poems, quoting:
“ Cum dolor at que supercilio gravis imminet angor,
Fungeris angelico sola minis terio.”
And the reference is: Vida, ad Eranen, El. IIV. 21.
It was a clever hoax, and deceived Scott himself,
for there are no such lines nor piece in Vida’s
T. H. S., Augusta, Ga., writes: “Not long
since, riding on the cars, I witnessed a humor
ous scene that followed quickly upon one of a
more serious nature, and I was struck with the
apparent ease with which the company glided
from a state of feeling bordering on the sublime
to that of mirth or buffoonery. An intelligent
companion remarked: ‘How true is the saying
of Napoleon: “Du sublime au ridicule il n’y a
qu’um pas.”’ Will you please tell me if this
common phrase originated with the great Napo
leon ?” . . . The first Napoleon has received
much credit for this famous phrase, “From the
sublime to the ridiculous there is but one step;”
but, no doubt, he borrowed it from Tom Paine’s
writings, which were translated into French in
1791, and in which this sentence occurs. The
sublime and the ridiculous are often so near re
lated that it is difficult to class them separately;
one step above the sublime makes the ridiculous,
and one step above the ridiculous makes the
sublime. But it is very likely that Paine obtain
ed his notion from our old college friend, Hugh
Blair, who in a certain place remarks: “It fre
quently happens that where the second line is
sublime, the third, in which he meant to rise
still higher, is perfect bombast.” And Blair
even borrowed that from the treatise of the an
cient rhetorician, Longinus, on the “Sublime.”

nent, and arose from their profane habits of
swearing. For many centuries, and especially
in the fourteenth and fifteenth, the English peo
ple were remarkable for the revolting and impious
habit of profane swearing in conversation—now
happily less frequent; and the nickname Godon
(G—d d—n) was applied to them. During the
trial of Joan of Arc, a witness was asked who
Godon was. He replied that it was a nickname
applied to the English on account of their fre
quent exclamation, “G—d d—n it.” The fol
lowing is narrated of the Maid of Orleans her
self. She was visited, while in prison at Rouen,
bv two English earls, to whom she said: “I
know that you English are determined to put
me to death, and you imagine that, after I am
dead, you will be able to conquer France; but
if there were a hundred thousand G—d d—ns
more in France than there are, they will never
conquer that kingdom.”
