OUR DRAWING-ROOM.

OUR EXCHANGE.--Ladies wishing to effect exchanges through our columns can do so GRATIS, on the following condition :-1. That they give an address, which may be printed 2. It is not possible for us to undertake to forward letters and enter addresses; but ladies who wish to exchange, and who object to their addresses being published, can advertise an exchange, without address given, on payment of one shilling for thirty-six words, when their names will be entered, and letters forwarded, without further expense.

failing to get replies to your advertisements may have been owing to want of clearness in express sing your wishes. Advertising is your only way, if your friends cannot assist you. The "Christian World" is an excellent medium for advertisement. State your age, if of pleasing appearance, and if you are willing to give any time at first-which you had better do if you have had no experience. If you could manage to advertise in this way two or three times successively in any one good paper, with an interval of a day or two between the appearance of your advertisements, you would be almost sure to obtain a result.)

EMILY BURTON, who is an old subscriber to the magazine, wishes to purchase a song by the late Charles Edward Horn, The Troubadour, beginning

“One summer's eve, at twilight hour."

JESSIE CLYDE would send a packet of 20 roots of Devonshire ferns (6 varieties) for 12 stamps ; or, if preferred, half the number for 6 stamps. Post free.-Miss Clyde, Northdown Lodge, Bideford, Devon.

ANNCHEN writes, Can any of your correspondents tell me where I can procure articles suitable for a bazaar, at a cheaper rate than I can get them at ordinary shops? If you will insert this in your next number, you will greatly oblige me.

MAVOURNEEN would be very glad indeed to have the Nightingale's Trill from Liberal, at the price she names. If agreed, what is M. to do? Send stamps to the amount to the editor, with blank stamped envelope, and instructions to whom to forward.] Mavourneen would be glad to know, when a gentleman at dinner, after saying some complimentary sentences to a young lady, raises his glass to his lips, if it is necessary for her to do the same? [Certainly not.]

PURPLE PANSY inquires whether the feathers of the ostrich drop out naturally, or require that the bird shall first be killed ? [I am afraid they are plucked out while the bird is alive. There is but a small proportion of the feathers that are valuable, except to the bird itself. Those that drop are naturally rather out of condition.] Is it considered correct to send a visiting card by post, or by servant, in case it is impossible to call? [If you have a man servant, it would be more polite to send them by him than by post. If not, post them. To send them by a maid servant would be out of place.]

BLUEBELL begs to recommend E. G. S coal-tar soap for the skin when irritated by cold. It can be procured from any chemist at 6d. per cake. Bluebell would be much obliged if the editor, or some correspondent, would inform her where the following lines are to be found:

She will feel obliged by any subscriber kindly sending her the words of a piece of poetry commencing"The leaves of autumn fade away,

The summer's brightest flowers decay.” E. B. greatly values your excellent and instructive magazine. The additional paper on Daily Politics she trusts will be continued ; fashionplates suitable for the dresses, caps, and bonnets for the middle aged-the latter, she considers are much needed, and would be appreciated ; and a detailed account of the materials, shades of colour most suitable for the season, and where procurable, would be advantageous. E. B. wishes to know whether there is any charge for answers in THE YOUNG ENGLISHWOMAN? (We are always glad of practical suggestions and comments. There is no charge for answers in THE YOUNG ENGLISHWOMAN.

BROWNIE would be much obliged if any correspondent of the magazine would tell her how to make frames for pictures of cork. She has often seen them, and they look as if there were hundreds of little bits of cork stuck on ; but she cannot think how they are done, and would be much obliged for any information.

A CHURCHWOMAN sends Elspie the words of a hymn which she asked for in the September number. She adds, I am not a subscriber, but see your valuable paper through a friend, so want to know if I have the privilege of asking questions through its medium? (Certainly.]

C. M. C. will be very thankful if she can be informed how long it is requisite to be in mourning for an aunt ; also, the length of time a little girl, four years old, should wear mourning for her brother, eighteen months old. (Crape three months, and second mourning three months more. From nine to twelve months. ]

FEFFA would be much obliged if the Editor would give a pattern of a round pinafore for a boy three years old. Feffa wrote to Heather Bell, at Eddeston, in November, and received the fern roots quite right; so it is singular how other letters have gone astray. Can any of your correspondents tell me if there is an organsetting of Oh, that I had Wings like a Dove, by Mendelssohn, and where procurable? Feffa thinks the songs and pieces are advertised in the Drawing-room at too high prices. We give the patterns that are likely to be most generally useful. At the same time, if we find that there is a great demand for some one special pattern, we try to comply with our subscribers' expressed wishes, and issue it.]

MRS. R. would be greatly obliged to the Editor, or any of his readers, if they would kindly tell her a cure for superfluous hair. She has taken THE YOUNG ENGLISHWOMAN for six years, and never, to her knowledge, has she received two coloured plates with one. [There is no cure for superfluous hair. Any attempt at removing it only results in disfigurement ; and not only that, but the attempt always leaves visible traces. Now and then, an extra coloured plate is given away with THE YOUNG ENGLISHWOMAN; but the publishers will discontinue the practice if they receive so many complaints that they do not always give away extra plates.]

H. BEAUMONT writes, Seeing how very kindly all young Englishwomen who apply to the YOUNG ENGLISHWOMAN for advice are answered, I venture to ask assistance in a matter that troubles me. It is this: I want a situation of some kind, and I do not know how to obtain one. I have advertised in the “ Telegraph and “ Christian World " without any success ; and as a few shillings even are some object to me, I cannot afford to do this often on chance.

There is a paper called the “Continental and Swiss Times." Would this be a likely paper through which I might find something suitable? I am not fitted for a governess, but any other capacity I think I could fill. I should like to be in business : I understand confectionery and refreshments thoroughly; and fancy I should like to be in some exhibition, bazaar, or some such place, either in England, Paris, or Brussels -indeed, anywhere. Or, I could be in an hotel at the sea-side. I would be glad even if it were only for the busy season. Now, if the Editor can help me, I shall feel very thankful. I think it is likely that at some of the fashion, able sea-side places, at hotels and confectioners, they have extra hands for the season, and I am in no hurry for a month or so. Please do help me, and let me have an answer early. Your

"Such is life : one constant change. And yet to love it, Oh! how strange !"

Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,
Ílear me, blest Saviour, when I call ;
flear me, and from Thy dwelling-place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace.

Jesus, my Lord, I Thee adore ;
Oh, make me love Thee more and more.

And also say whether he should infer from her letter that her education is very imperfect? [Latter query against rules.] Bluebell encloses some lines for the Amateur's column, should they be deemed worthy of insertion. [Declined with thanks.]

SWEETBRIAR would feel greatly obliged if Sylvia could tell her some simple and becoming way of doing up her hair. She is five feet two inches in height; has golden hair, rather long, but not very thick ; long face, rather thin; fair skin, dark-blue eyes, slim figure. [The Catogan coiffure ought to suit you admirably, arranged rather far back; and your hair puffed out a little at the sides, as your face is rather thin. In case you do not know how to do it, I will describe the manner of it as well as I can : but it is always difficult to convey information of that kind. Divide the hair across the middle of the back. Comb the lower-part up, and tie it. Pin under the string two frisettes. Roll the hair over these, twist the frisettes over each other, and fasten the end of the twist up beside the tied part; that makes the falling plait at the back. Then tie the hair up at the left side, leaving out the front piece, if you prefer to do it separately. Fasten the hair at the right side back with a hairpin, as little rolled curls are made of it afterwards to hide the beginning of the pendant plait. Pin two frisettes under the tied hair at the left side, cover them with the hair, twist over each other, and coil the twist across the head, fastening the end rather far back. Then roll the little curls

Jesus, too late I Thee have sought !
How can I love Thee as I ought,
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy name?

Jesus, my Lord, etc.
Jesus, what didst Thou find in nie,
That Thou hast dealt so lovingly ?
How great the joy that Thou hast brought,
So far exceeding hope or thought;

Jesus, my Lord, etc.

To Thee my heart and soul belong;
All that I have, or am, is Thine ;
And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine.

Jesus, my Lord, etc. ---Amen.
