BY PHOEBE FORRE8T.
OT every one of last Junes sweet
girl graduates is going to get a
teaching position this fall, and only
a few that studied stenography this
summer will be able to get work in
an oftice. But they must make their
living, and they feel that having
spent all these years at school they
should get something to do that requires an education, so that they
may not seem to have wasted their
time.
Overfed and luxuriously-housed pets develop to
many ailments that many women are now earning * living, i i professional nurses for cats and
dogs. Some of these pampered pets are even provided with watches, hung round their necks by
gold chains, and several shops make a specialty of
suitable outfits for them.
When one hears of tiny lap-dogs that wear $200
coats lined with sable, golden collars with diamond
monograms, and glace kid boots on their fqur tittle feet, one is a little inclined to scoff.
For, to the average common-sense person, the
pampered pet seems the most absurd folly of the
itra fashionable Women of today.
There is actually a dogs' barber in London, and

A well-known firm makes these "paw-warmers"

How to Keep
and scratches when particularly unpleasant medicines have to be- administered.
One professional nurse In London says, however, that even the most spoilt and bad-tempered
of cats is easy to deal with compared to the average pet monkey. '
Monkeys, when they are made to share our
artificial life in towns, are subject to severe
attacks of neuralgia, and when in pain are even
more ill-tempered than human beings in the same
circumstances, Sometimes the nurse finds it almost impossible to deal with them at all until they

people have taken so much intere┬лt in
matters relating to the aquarium, and it
is through the efforts of such naturalists
as Mr. Saville Kent, Dr. Ray I.ankester
and Others, that so many well-appointed aquaria
have been established in several of our large towns.
The Chinese and Japanese have kept and used
fish for centuries. At the present day goldfish are
to be found in nearly every home in tnose countries. These Eastern people do not cultivate the
common kinds, but have introduced some very
beautiful varieties. .There is one' species with a
velvety black back and sides variegated with yellow, blue, rose and black.
Another has its sides and back a rich blue, and
its under parts silver. The "Superb"-is scarlet and
black. The "Tumbler" is described as having the
head and tail bent upwards, giving the tish a crescent like shape, and when swimming it tumbles
after the fashion of a pigeon in the air.
The "Fan-tailed Japanese Carp" adds very тАвmuch
