Chicago puts forth a claim to be considered the true Babel of the twentieth century. No fewer than forty languages are spoken within its limits, and of fourteen each is spoken by more than 10,000. One of the rarest and most expensive of Chinese gold fishes is the brush tail, a pair of which sells for £200. Probably there is no other living thing of its size and weight that is worth so much monev. Remember the Black Beetles, and be sure to tell Cook to well sprinkle the floor near the fire-place last thing at night with KEATING'S POWDER, the unrivalled Killer of Fleas, Beetles, Moths; also Nits in Children's Heads. Harmless to animals. Sold only in Tins, 3d., 6d., and lB. Filled Tin Bellows ready for use, Oti- Paris seems the last place in the world likely to harbour the learned and emancipated woman. Yet, during the last year or two, the craze for the higher education of women has grown rapidly in the French capital. The other day, in a lecture on "Some Literary French-women," given at the Steinway Hall, M. Bouvier devoted not a little time to a novel by Gabrielle Reval, called "Les Sevriennes," which gives a realistic description of a sort of French Girton at Sevres, the suburb of Paris known to English visitors as the headquarters of the porcelain manufacture. But now "blue stockings" of the first dye are manufactured there. A special effort is being made by the Belgian Board of Agriculture through its inspectors, teachers, mistresses of schools of agricultural housewifery, and others, to impress on farmers' wives and daughters the necessity for wearing nlain short gowns, devoid of trains and furbelows. Simple costumes, it is pointed out, are really in better taste, are necessary for their occupations, and advantageous from a pecuniary standpoint. Moreover, in all ages and in all countries farmers' wives and children have worn them. A crusade is being waged against earrings, mock jewellery, fashionable hats, and the like, and questions as to their beauty and utility are directed to be put to pupils.
