A GOOD TIME COMING! A writer in a contemporary thus dilates on that gpest plague in life," the difficulty of getting a good servant It is, however, an ill wind that blows no goodnd this difficulty of getting servants must have therect of bringing people to live less for show, lncning wealth tempts families of posit to imitate, on a small scale, the establishments of theeat, and the happiness of thousands is destroyed by tvam desire to impose on their neighbours Sensibleople will soon begin to do as much without servants they can. There are many things which it is custony to summon a servant to do for you, but which it ieally much pleasanter to do yourself; and ladies v soon begin to see that they would be much more countable and independent if they at least knew how woJught to be done. The day will come when cated Englishwomen will know how to cook, and wready see the blessed promise of the dawn. A knodge of the English language, quite correct gramn quite correct pronunciation, the right use of wordse right Eitch of voice, combined with a knowledof the igher branches of cookery, ought to bei main features of every girl's education. We muandidly own that these features are at present neged, and are in fact despised. But some day or othae voice of educated men will frighten women into thng their own language the most important part of sar study, and the want of servants will force learn enough cooking to give instructions to the iierienced maids they will be only too glad to get. iresent it is quite true that cooking would be though low as a knowledge of English is thought unnecey.
