Physical Culture for Ladies

I have been somewhat surprised during my stay in Kansas City, to see how little interest is taken by the ladies in physical culture, which in the larger cities of the east forms such an important part of a girl's education nowadays. The old idea that a woman is man's inferior physically, is pretty well exploded since the proper sort of physical training has been made available for women. In point of fact, I believe the reverse is true as far as mere strength of muscle and limb is concerned. In one of my classes in Boston, I had a pupil, Miss Amie Le Castron, who, while hardly able to lift a ten pound dubm bell when she first began to practice, by constanttraining became able to handle heavier weights than most men can. In Berlin another pupil of mine, Miss Bertha Wurtmer, in a class exhibition carried off the first honors for all round athletic work, winding up by defeating seven contestants in a five mile walk. There are great possibilities for women in such a course of training. -- Professor in Kansas City Journal.

A Substitute for Coffee

The Paris correspondent of The Glasgow Mail writes of the discovery of an extraordinary nature made in the island of Reunion which threatens to make havoc in the coffee trade. It is said that a plant called the wild orange grows on the island. It produces a fruit which is green at first and afterward bluish, verging into purple as it ripens. Hitherto the product of the plant has not attracted any particular notice in a commercial sense, but it is recently been tested and found to possess qualities which will render it an admirable substitute for coffee, the use of which will place within the reach of those who hitherto have not been well able to afford the high prices which in many places are asked for good coffee a beverage which will be in every way the equal of the latter. The government of the colony is said to have the matter in hand, and about 24,000 acres in the highest portion of the island are now under cultivation for the growth of the "wild oranges".
