TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Now that tho winter is set in something should ba done in order to comepl those shops in which young girls are employed as saleswomen to close at six, instead of eight or later. Surely Saturday night is sufficient for those who are unable to purchase early. Standing all day is quite enough without having to come back again in the evening. When have they time for domestic work, exercise, or amusement? Mothers whose daughters are employed as saleswomen, it is they who know the evil of the long hours ; and if they who make a habit of purchasing late had daughters of their own in those shops they would see the advisability of early closing. The many diseases which these poor girl 3 fall a prey to in after life are due to nothing more nor less than the long standing. Oh, mothers, have pity on us ! Fathers, keep your wives in after six. —I am, etc,
