Dear Mr. Editor:��� As a woman��� not
a new one��� 1 was much interested in the
letters that appeared in ; out* valuable
paper last week, Hiving attention lo thc
household duties of women. Indeed,
ihese duties are ofien very much too
heavy for the hail shoulders that have to
carry themj but is not this partly the
cause of mismanagement ? And does not
a great deal depend on beginning well ?
Two years ago when I returned from my
wedding trip, and found .myself settled
down in my cosy liltle home, 1 must ad-
mil 1 had some misgivings as to my
houskecping capacity and powers of endurance. However I promptly decided
thai lit)' house should be kept as beautifully as possible, and that In the keeping
of it, I would be guided by strict common
No one 1 think will deny that cooking
is lhe heaviest part of thc household work;
still by forethought and method thc
drudgery of ihis may be greatly lessened
ll is necessary for health that our food
should be varied and properly cooked.
.Ought it nol lo he nicely served ? Nothing io mv mind shows lite mate refinement of i woman's nature more than the
way in which she arranges her table.
The ware may be very inexpensive and
the tablecloth nol necessarily damask;
but both should be spotless, and the
whole should be tastefully and neatly arranged. Surely it is not necessary, or
wise, to divfhc bulk of the .housework in
one'day. as is the case in many houses.
One room cleansed thoroughly each day
is it much less laborious plan ihan doing
'three or, four on Friday or Sutu'di'y. He-
Cause one is doing household work is
there any reason why one should don an
old wVapper, and go about with untidy
hair? A neatly titling cotton gown, and
a large apron are much more becoming.
It is a fatal mistake to try and do loo
much. There are some days when one
seems to have no energy, and to be able
t.i accomplish nothing. Take my advice:
do that which is necess.-uy, then dress
and go out fcr li. walk, or pay a few calls.
You will conic home much brighter ind
have a happy face, instcid of a gloomy
one, when some one else comes home
later on. It is an excellent plan after the
dinner when citings are-put ..way, and
baby is taking a nap, to lie down lor a
while. One rises rested . and refreshed,
and feeling much-more lit for the remain,
der of the day's work. I know many peo
pie consider this a wasle of time, but
there lhey make a great mistake. Mrs.
Huslle, over the way, who does a certain amount of scrubbing every day, if
her house needs it or not, and who wears
herself out polishing the tins and brasses on her kitchen wall, says that I act
like a mad thing, and have no more idea
ot keeping house properly than an Indian squaw; but if she thought things
over she would find that there is method
in my madness, and would give her all, to
keep what I have kept��� my husband's
love of home. Mrs. Bloomer next door,
says that I consider my husband too
much, and that 1 ought to be much more
independent Perhaps so; but would
either of us be so happy ? To the true
man, his wife should ever be the QUEKN
;of his home. She has a power over her
husband if she only use il aright stronger
than tlie seas ot earth, purer than llie aits
qt heaven.
"Why having won her tin I woo?
Because her spirit's gentle grace
Provokes me ever lo pursue;
Because ultho' in act anil word,
As lovely as a wife cau be,
Her manner when she calls me lord,
Reminds me 'lis by courtesy."
  '     Aiix.
Mr. Editor: I have read tbe editorials
and letters on Househn'd Labors with
rrtUcli interest; and believe th.it women
cotrdsave themselves, a great deal of
hard work, if lhey would let their husbands prepare the breakfast, wash and
dress the children, and ge: them off to
school; wash; sweep, m ike and mend the
���childrens'cloih.., and d'j the other liltle.
tasks that HE snys are ''no work at   all."
"Why, whal'; thc matter, Miry? ex-
-claim's the loving husband, six year*lifter
marriage: "You don't keep things as
tidy'as you used tn.   Are you sick r
'. "No, John, but the children; I'm so
worn out wtth them," she meekly replies;
sighing as -she looks at the four olive
branches tlrat bless their home. "If you'd
take bain' a few minules,   I rould mend
|cphee 8l j|oofe
Choicest Meats, Fresh Eggs ancl Vegetables
A full line of Staple anrl  Fancy Groceries.
Dry Goods, Boots and Shoes, etc., etc., etc
your socks and shirt."
John takes the youngest baby and settles hack in the e.isv chair to smoke and
read; at the expiration ol fifteen minutes
he votes the youngest a nuisance, and
takes himself off down town or somewhere, OUT of thc dill. When lie re-
turns he finds his socks and shin, neatly
mended, hanging over the back of a
chair, and Mary wearily walking the
floor, trying to sooth a colicky baby. One
man, in ten might offer to take the
child but would be disagreeably surprised
if his wife thought he meant it.
I may be straying from the subject-
Household Labors��� but I'm trying to
convey the idea, th.it if tbe fathers
would help a little more wilh the babies
the mothers would COMPLAIN l.Kss
about the house work. They wouldn't
sigh for some cnhkakd of emancipation.
Women as a rule, love lheir homes, and
its duties.
Washing, ironing, scrubbing, baking,
cooking thc meals, and washing dishes,
is lhat part of housework that must be
done, simplfied or otherwise,!*)' the house
wife or some one else. If the good man
is able to hire a sen ant whilo 'his family
is young, that relieves his wife of the'
heavy work while her hands find plenty
of employment doing the thousand and
one LITTLE things to be done about
ahousc. ,:
I spoke to one young woman on this
subject, and was greaily amused by her
answer, which may be helpful to some
weary sis*er*. "If we kepi our thoughts
on lhe |ott\ and sublime (the mountains
and tree top's, for instance) we should
soon forget the dirty windows, and be
able to let our floors go a whole month
without scrubbing." 1 admire beautiful
scenery very much, and mean to try
cleaning the floors, after my friend's idea,
sometime in the near future. I might
lose my place if I tried it now. I feel
lhat I am I.iking up much valuable space
and nnt giving an equivalent, so 1 will
close with a bil of good advice to the
children and SOME MEN, in this little
town: "Don't ask your mother or wife
to wait on you if you are able to wait
on yourselves." That will lesson the
housewife's labor eighty per cent, and
tbey will not be laid up with nervous
headaches quite so often.

Dear Mr. Editor���
In beginning the few words I
shall say on this most interesting subject,
allow me lo take issue with ibe women
who consider domestic duties a bondage
from which every woman ought to free
herself as far as possible. I consider
home-making tn be woman's true vocation and I know many women who tint!
their highest enjoyment in the performance of bome dunes. But the idea of
home embraces more than merely a place
to eat and sleep in, nn milter how perfect its appointments may be: and there
is such a thing as destroying the very essence of lhe idea by the home maker's
being ton "careful and troubled about
many things.'.'-'
The woman who is so busied with the
c viking, detain.;, making, and mending,
which the care of a househotild involves:,
thai sbe has no rime to devote lo tin:
higher duties ol ol l.l'e is lo be very much
pitied. The fault lies in many directions
No doubt a lack of "plain living" is responsible for very much of it, but I think
the.waiK nf system must shoulder most
of thebjajie. So mauy women dn their
work in-a pitrely haphazard manner��� no
pariicularplo.ee for. anything, and consequently of course, nothing in its place.
-And speaking of place, I think a urand
remedy would be well arranged houses,
particularly kitchens so furnished with
tables, drawers, - etc as to save as many
steps as possible. The average housekeeper spends an immense .amount of
time and strength in bringing from all
parts of the house things which ought
to be within reach of her hand..:.
We have had a visit frotjjvthe traveling
dairy.    1  think  the government  would.
confer a greater boon on thc country by
sending out a travelling kitchen which
should be a model of furnishings and
arraugemeni. We poor women are as a
ruie not inventive, ancl we struggle year
after year, with hampering conditions,
never realizing it may be in our power'to
improve them.
Mr. Editor: I have been much interested in the discussion of lhe housekeeping
question, ll is loo big a subject to treat
generally, and with your kind permission
I will lust refer at this time lo the steam
cooker as a labor saving device. It is
constructed with several compartments,
one above the other, in each of which
whatever is desire.!, mav be cooked at
the same time, and without dan-er of
sccrching; so that while ihe cooking process ts going on attention may be given
to other things The one I. have works
like a charm nnd I would not feel as
though I could get along without it'.
Quite a .number-are npw being .user! in
town and so far as I know, every brie using
one is more than pleased, and I cannot
too highly commend them to my overworked sisters.

What is in tlie cream will be found in
���the l;utt;*r. Good butter ia only made
from good cream, therefore it is not
made from cream that i.s taken from
the miik of coma fed on turnips, turnip tops, carrot tops, rape, green
rye, muulily or musty fodders, and
like foods. Butter is made out of
the food.** which the cow eats, and ls
good or bad, accordingly. The water
of tToiam Is tho water drunk by tlie
cow, and not the water from your
neighbor's well. Cows need nil the
unit they care to cut each day, if
you would make a good cream. Do
not Bait tlie cowa onco a week, und
then put two oiincea of suit to each

Carelessness and luck of knowledge give flue to the chief rocks upon
whicli success founders In the handling
of cream. 1'nder the hoatl Ol caru-
leflanesB, we would note;
First! Leaving cream in cans or
nana longer than Is necessary, and
thus exposing it to possible contamination, unnecessarily. . it may be
that some do not know that twelve
hours for deep cans and twenty-
four for shallow pans is quite sulll-
ilant for summer setting. Twelve
hours sliould be added to these periods for winter setting.
Secondly: Not stirring cream frequently. Uniformity Ik ono of the
chief good things requisite In cream.
,It means moro and better butter.
Thirdly: Leaving the cream-can
,opcn, thus allowing tho possible introduction of objectionable forms of
���fermentation. The weight of good
opinion prefers a tightly-closed tin can
for tho keeping aud ripening of
Fourthly: Keeping cream lu improper places���the root or vegetable
cellar, beside the soap barrel, the
onion chest or the meat bin, in thc
kitchen or bedroom, ior instance.
Fifthly: Ripening cream under
conditions similar to the above, uud
raising the temperature of cream by
dry heat, im by the kitchen stove, instead of setting it in hot water, stirring constantly, and thus preserving strict uniformity and exactness of
temperature throughout tlie ma^s.*���

Mr. .lames Peter, licrkcley, Ulouc-es-
tershire, explains, ia the North Britiah Agriculturist, his system ol using
C&rboltc aeld as a preventive of abortion In cuttle. " Commence by mixing
witli sufficient hot water to mako a
bran mash, 1-4* oz., ordinary crude
carbolic aeld, then 'add the bran,
gradually InxTetLslng the carhollc acid
up to l-ii oz., which is tho maximum
quantity I can get a cow to take
tn a bran mash. For a number of
cows, I measure out the requisite
number of \-2 oz. doses, nnd mix with
water and brau ln a fodder barrow,
and then give a good, broad shovelful
to oach animal. Beforo I gut rid of

Tliere is a strong tendency among
careless farmers to klfll off breeding
sows after tliey have had one or two
Utters. This is a serious mistake.
A how two yeurs or three years old
will bring a larger litter and of more
thrifty pigs thnn will a young sow
farrowing her first litter. This
early breeding tends to deterioration.
A young sow ought to be growing heraelf, and It is reasonable to auppoae
that the food she eats caimot give
her young tho vigor that a sow can
which can give all tho food she cats
beyond the necessity of living to her
young. While bearing and rearing
her first Utter wo have known sows
to gain 30 to 20 pounds, though most
of this will he lost whilo suckling pigs.
If what a young sow puts into her
own -weight were put Into lier pigs, it
must make u great difference to their
size and thrift. Wo believe that the
difference la greater than tlds would
indicate. Bearing young increases
tho digestive power of sows, so that
as they grow older it is very bard
to feed tiiem poorly enough to keep
them ln breeding condition. If the
old sow becomes too fat she either will
not breed at all, or Is likely to have
[ever, and devour her young when they
are uropped. Tliere should be lib-
oral feeding with bulky and not very
nutritious food to keep old sows in
condition for producing first-class- lit-
U.r.s of pigs.

of Health aud Beauty.
(From the Itiehlbm-tu, N. B., Keview.)
There are vory few people, especially among the agriculturists of
Kent County, N. B., who do not
know Mr. 11. 11. Warm an, the popular agent for agricultural machinery,
or Mollis RKe-r. A Ueview representative was lu conversation with
Mr. Wurman recently, when the subject of Dr. Williams' I'iuk Pills was
incidentally touched upon. Mr. War-
man snid he wns a staunch believer
In their curative properties, and to
justify liis opinion he related the
euro of his sister, MIbS .lessle Wurman, uged 13, who he said had been
"almost wrested from the grave by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." Miss War-
man had been suffering for nearly u
year with troubles Incident to. girlhood. She suffered Irom severe    and
"A Picture of Health aad Activity."
almost constant headaches, dizziness,
heart palpitation, aud wa.s pale
and bloodless, and eventually became
so weak and emaciated that her parents thought that she was in consumption, aiid had Jill but given up
hope of her recovery. Her father, Mr.
Richard Wurman, who is u well-to-do
farmer, spared no expanse to procure
relief for the poor sufferer. The best
available medical advice waa employed, ImV no relief came, nnd although the parents wero almost In
despair, they t>till strove to find the
means of restoring their loved one to
health. Mr. Warm an, like everybody
else who reads the newspapers, had
read of tlio many marvellous cures
effected by the use of Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills, but, like some others,
looked upon these stories as "mere
pa teat medicine advertisements."
However, as everything else had
failed, he determined that I'ink Pills
should be given a trial, with a result no less marvellous than that of
many other cases related through
the press. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have completely cured the young
lady, so that la a few months, from
a helpless aud supposedly dying girl,
she has become a picture of health
und netlvlty. The Wurman family Is
so well known In this part of the
country that no oue wonld think of
disputing any stutemeut made by
auy of Its members. Mr. II. II. War-
man, on account of his business as
salesman for agricultural machinery,
is personally acquainted with
nearly everybody in the county, anil
we feel assured that uny inquiries
made of him concerning the statements made above will be readily answered.
The gratify lug results following
thc use of Dr. Williams* Pink Pills,
In the case of Miss Wurman prove
that they are unequalled as a blood
builder and aerve tonic. In the case
of young girls who are pale or sallow, listless, troubled with a fluttering or palpitation of the heart, weak
and easily tired, no time should be
lost in taking a course of Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills, which will speedily
enrich the blood and bring a rosy
glow*of health* to the cheeks. They
are a specific for troubles peculiar to
females, such as suppressions, irregularities and all forms of weakness.
In men they effect a radical cure In
all cases arising from mental worry,
overwork, or excesses of whatever
fcr. Williams* Pink Pills are manufactured by the Dr, Williams' Medicine Co.. Brockville. Out., and Schen-
octndy, N. Y., and arc sold In boxes

hundred) at 50 cents a box, or six

Twelve miles south of Harrtsburg
still standi* tho house in whicli Liud-
ley Murray, the so-called father or
English grammar, wus born, says tho
Philadelphia Times, it is a somewhat pretentions tog house with
three rooms and a sleeping lift, built
on tho southern slopo of a hill and
facing tiio glow-flowing Swatara������

���Murray.** rather wns a Scotchman
who settled here aliout 1730, and
soon after married a Miss Henry,
daughter of ouo of tlio Pennsylvania
German families in the neighborhood. Murray, in liis autobiography,
Kays: "My parent*-) weru of respectable character ami in tho middle station of life. My father possessed a good flour mill on tho Swatara, hut being of an enterprising
spirit and anxious to provide handsomely for his family, he made several voyages to the West Indies in
tho way of trade, by which he very
considerably augmented ids property.
I'ursuing his inclinations, ho in timo
acquired large possessions and ho-
eumo one of tlio most respectable
merchants in America. My mot lier
was a womnn of an amiable disposition nnd remarkable for mildness, humanity and liberality of sentiment."
Tho Murray homestead, with its
old oaken buoket, ami lvy*covered
porch, lies within a. few miles of the
"old Derry church," ono of the very
oldest churches hi the State, and
whicli within tho last fow years has
been replaced hy a ���beautiful stone
memorial chapel, lioro tho Murrays
and Dixon's and Tiumnns aud lioyds
and Bertrams worshipped as early as
1720, and tradition still points out
the very treo at which William Tenn
tied his horso on Ids first and last
visit to the parish. Distance does
not seem to havo deterred thc pious
old worthies who had charge of tho
spiritual affairs of the Murrays and
their Presbyterian neighbors, for in
tlie lif.i ol' the ltev. Adam Hoyd, who
ministered to tlie flock before tho infant Lind ley was born, it is said
that he "prerfchoft to tho westward of
Octorara and Donegal, ovor Conoy
and eastward as far as tlio barrens
of Derry," aud his salary was ��60 per
year, payable in hemp, linen, corn,
yarn and chickens.
It Ih rather curious to ��ce tho
changes that have como over the
neighborhood In which the great
grammarian was horn and raised.
The log houses in which lived tho
old Scotch-Irish and English families
arc still Standing and in use for farm
Implements nnd" stables, though the
Murray homestead is still occupied as
a dwelling-house, and 'the prim German housewife wild think you havo
certainly gone daft if you go staring
about hor house or ask her what
nhe knows about Llndley Murray, of
whom the has nover eveu heard. A
region richer in folk-loro or historical incident cannot bo round, though
tho present inhabitants thereabout
can givo you llttilc assistance or
Inspiration. Material prosperity haa
smiled upon the hills of ManaUa and
tho barrens of Derry, but tihere Is
none of the eld intellectual lifo which
in one generation gave to "glory and
to fame'' more sons and daughters
��� than have ten generations since; The
most prominent of these wero Dixon
and Murray. Kobert Dixon, of Dixon s Ford, near the Murray placo,
Avon fame on the .same fields that
brought glory to Wolfe and Montgomery. Sam Atkinson says of him in
his "Casket and Evening Post'* that
"lie was ono of those spirits which
rise in flame to Illuminate ail around
him ; gentle as thc summer breeze In
private life, but terrible as the whirlwind in the day of danger.'��� Murray
��� was a bilng of a dlffeient order. The
closet was his battlefield, though he
nCver turned his pen ia favor of tbo
country ol his birth. "While the
companions of \,U boyhood were fighting t*io American revolution he was
living the peaceful life of a Quaker.
Meanwhile- however, like many another pIouaQunker- lie was taking advantage of the time-} and lining his
pockets with tiie almighty doll lur. Near
tho. Murrays was also born Pllery
Truman, and another, tho equal of
thom all, Krully Uaymoud, the pride
of tlie Swatara, ths spirit of Its woods
and fields; a beautiful soul "whose
story remains to bo written.
Llndley Murray's early boyhood was
spent at the homo ou tlm Swatara,
his father's flour and grist mill being about a mile distant, near Kogor's
ford. When Llndley was about 0
or 7 yen,rs old Ills father detcrmin-
rod to.'qult the Swatavn and try his
fortunes in tlie Carolluns. The family
Boon returned north again and a few
years later settled la New York,
whero tliey a-cquircd considerable
wealth and influence. Bofore leaving
the parish of Derry Llndley had beeu
sent to Philadelphia and put in the
caro of a tutor, Prof. Ebenezer Kln-
nersley, wlio ajterward became noted
ay a colaboror with Franklin in his
elcctrlca.1 researches and experiments.
. Murray was nn apt pupil, and gavo
early evidences of the ability lie was
to display In after years. He took a
violent dislike at first to a mcrenn-
(tilo life, and for want pi a more
���suitable profession took' to tho hi.w.
Ho WOB admitted to tho bar at the
ago of 21, and, after a few years in
England,' returned to Now York,
whero ho practiced until the revolution broke out. Ilo then took a. turn
at mercantile life, and made a fortunu
and went to England, where ho lived
ever afterward���an Englishman
���rather than an American. lie says:
"In particular I had strong prepossessions ia fa.vor of a residence in
Englnnd, because I was ever partial
to its political constitution and the
mildness and wisdom ol its general
laws. Ou leaving my native couutry there was not, therefore, anything which could afford mo so mueh
real satisfaction ns I have found in
Great Britain." He purchased a
small estate near Holdguto, where
he led a quiet, peaceful literary lifo.
Murray's chief Jiterary work was
'��� The Power of Ueiglou on the Mind,"
published 1787, and which pasBed
through nearly twenty editions. The
object of the book, he said, was to
" excite .serious reflections ou tho unsatisfying and transitory nature of
temporal enjoyments, and to promote a lively concern for the attainment of that felicity which will be
complete and permanent." He thon
Wrote a (series of sketches of o;ie hundred men aud women of all sorts and
conditions,from -lob to Caesar Dorgia,
and Baron Heller to yir William
Jones, whose lives, by inspiring In
the reader eitlior admiration or pity,
were to bo "of singular efficacy to
excif> a lovo of <iod and goodness."
He dwells specially on their conduct
at the approach of denth, and uses
it fur a stirring argument against
Infidelity. " What nu evldenco on
behalf of piety and vlrtuo! What a
dissuasive from vice and foil}'!" Is
tho fact, he says, tbat nil should be
so deeply Impressed with the need of
religion wlien they reach the termination of their days. And ho quotes
Young as tho Inspiration of his life:
'Tls Immortality���'tis that alone,
Amidst life's pains-abasements, emptiness]
Tho soul can comfort, elevate,     and
Iu his school life Murray had made
many friends, with whom he kept up
a lifelong correspondence. Prominent among theso was Chief Justice
Jay. Murray also wrote many religious and controversial pamphlets
ami several books in French.
But there Is only one book that
bos kept Llndley Murray's fame
alive Ta all these years, and that is
his gramraer. It alone Is sufficient
to make the valley of the Swatara
forever famous. And yet how few
people remember or know that the
county of Dauphin can claim the
birthplace of the noted: grammarian.
Lindley Murray's grammar I What
memories it inspires In nil of the
oiiler generation, all of whom, in

All the old schoolmasters swore
hy Murray and liis rules and examples
of orthography, etymology, .syntax,
and prosody, his four constituent
parte of  English grammar.
In rural districts near tlie gram-
niavian's birthplace Murray, under a
different name, is still taught in all
Ills glory, and thore Ls d somewhat
pretentious academy* now happily on
a decline, only a few miles from the
Murray place, in which a decrepit old
grammarian, "dressed In gown, bands,
and wig," still holds his old-time
swn.y. Grammar, fn his opinion,
eonfiti'tutoB the sum tota,l of a liberal education. Ilo considers It liis
Specialty, and still uses Lindley Murray as the first and last authority,
and a verbatim knowledge of his
twenty-two rules of syntax is his
first requirement from a beginner, and
woe betide tlio poor wretch who
-recites rule lfl or rule 20 when a, rule
of  a different number is called  for!
This survival of tho Llndley Murray regime is no more amusing than
the grave way ia which I heard a
little girl discourse *a la Murray on
the difference between syntactical
and etymological parsing and then
take up "Who preserves us," and,
Shattering ns fast as her tongue
���could go, proceed to tell "Old Polyphemus," who hung over her with a
rule in ono hand and the other deep
In thc poeket of his antiquated
trousers, that "Who Is a relative
pronoun of thc interrogative kind,
therefore without any antecedent,
and in thc nominative case singular;
nominative, who; pussessivc, whose;
objective, whom : the word to which
it relates is called its subsequent, and
is the aoua or pronoun containing

���says, etc."
Tho boys woro not quito as ready

AVluitovcr may bo said of Murray's
grammar, it must bo confessed that

taught for good or for bad in nearly
all of the rural schools of tho State.

Wo are getting tired of this tumult over the New Woman. The editorial "we" tins time stands for the
Ohl \\ omen���many ol us very young,
perhaps, but emphatically aud
avowedly not "now." Wo have been
very quiet all Ehesd months, leaving
the screaming to that dissatisfied
minority who must make a noise to
he noticed ac all. Aild, strange 1 with
all our quietness, wo manage to have
and do Just about what we want.
In thi*) country tlie .New AVomau ls
an indefinite, Indefinable sort of a
creature, very -much talked of and
read of, but rarely seen, lu one humble opinion, at loast, Americans have
beea New Women for years; for so
long that the adjective lost its descriptive force decades before new
womaal.sin shook ponderous London to
Its centre.
Tho trouble all comes fiom thc Knglish girls, anyway. It is all another
form of angloniaaia. Maa has always
heon such a grand mogul in tli;i,t
tight little Isle oyer there. Big
brothers and little brothers, too, sous
and grandsons havo been salaamed
to, aud waited upon with slippers
aud pipes, blindly coddled and obeyed,
showered with legacies and inheritances, and heirlooms, educated
at expensive board schools and colleges and universities, before tho
girls of ihe family were eveu considered.
Aud, with all tliis, adored as little
gods by overy aunt, cousin, sister.
The best thing about it is that the
great, awkward dears havo no idea
thby aro being pampered. The women
are seeing ��� it, however, hence this
grand howl for rights and privileges
and equalities that float across the
water, stirring Idle women up to tho
belief, that we, too, must have rights
and privileges, when we already have
as many as are good for us. Wc
don't want any more. Only we dou't
kuow that wc don't. That is, the
Idle screamers   don't.
They go on crying like a child who

Why do rot men clamor to be recognized as the equals of women? Just

Now wc aro going to organize tin

eyed; we aro going to stop off electrics with our backs to the motor-
man, as we did a hundred years ago;
wo are going to read women s pages
nnd think "Jess*' not nice; wo are
going to giggle bashfully if someone
asks us II wo ever smoke ; and wo are
going to Choke over a petit verra���
that is, If we can be Induced to try
one. And if we don't make a sensation! Why, you anglpmaniacal new
women, we'll be married hi no time.
��� We are ii"t going to rldo a bicyci ���,
either. That fad Is a part of the
general hysterical movement. It Is
most Undignified, not to say youthful,
to allow an enthusiasm to rush to
sueh excess. Lottie Ollson said the
other night that if you've got a good
thing, you don't want to hurry it.
And Lottie looks 'is If she knew what
sho was talking about. We don't ou-
object to the bicycle. Wo object to
being called New Women, If
we ride ono; we object to having our
whole outfit criticised and condemned, as It Invariably is, whether It ft
skirts or trousers, by every man, woman and child we pass. Vanity Fair
says bloomers, topped by coquettish
little hats and veils, and trim waists,

Is the right-hand one in which he
keeps his change. Ho can lay all his
extravagances, if he only knew it, to
the facility with which he can dive for
a fistful of money. By tho timo we
have got at our poeketlniok and found
the particular division where the bills
are, prudence has conquered desire. Or
course, we can be deliberately ex-
iravagant, with malice aforethought,
and do it very well, but our consciences cannot stand tho wcarand
tear of doing it often. If only we. too,
eould be extravagant unconsciously,
peacefully, with a simple dive of the
j band.   It must be delicious!
I We women miss a deal of fun by
I uot being good story-tellers. It Is
only a matter of habit to remember
a point, and of practice to tell it well,
quickly, quietly with any inero suggestion, for Its rnlH.fci dVrre, so It be
funny, or wicked���or both. Why not
educate ourselves to that point, as
wo educate ourselves to bo good
talkers, good listeners or good con-
versatlouftlists���which is quito another thing from being a good talker
merely. Men have great fun at their
dinners over coffee and cognac, and,
if you'll believe it, all they do ls to
tell stories.
A young woman was tolling us the
other night ubout her experience ata
men's dinner. There wore seven of
them, and this on;s girl. She was a
bachelor-mald in Paris, and her presence at the dinner, quite accidental
and unexpected, is explained by too
long a story to givo here. She did
her best to make tho men forgot tho
disappointment ehe thought they
ought to feel at having a star dinner
spoiled by only ona woman; but whon
they got to cognac and coffee she felt
"out of the game" entirely. She
heard more stories thau she supposed
seven brains could remember; and
only one man got kicked snrrppti*
tioiisly so vigorously that ho finished
his story with no point at all���probably because it had two.
We wero at a Tamily dinner, a few
nights ago, and a dear uncle wa.s telling his bon mots most brilliantly, inspired by a new audience. We guessed
they were well polished by repeated
tellings even beforo his wife ejaculated : "I've heard ihose stories fifty
times if I've heard them once." Dear
woman, if you only had a few choice
ones yourself Ik: might hunt up fresh
stories for your especial appreciation.
He might even Insist upon a jolly little,
supper after tho theatre some night,

Explanation 6f a Trick That Pnxulnl Parli*
! Recent exhibitions in Paris theatres
I by two youug Americans, said to excel In their lino anything of the kind
tiiat has been seoa, attracted the attontion of tho French press. Standing
on the open stage, without auy apparatus hi sight, they caused long and
brilliant flames to dart from the
tips of tlielr fingers,, and also apparently from their mouths, for a
considerable length of time���certainly
half a minute. The method of producing thesetstartling appearance*
was kept secret by the Conjurers, and
had so far defied all attempts nt
explanation. A solution, however,
purporting to be furnished by a well-
known expert iu legerdemain, appears In a recent Issue ol La Nature.
It shows conclusively that thi' wholo
business depended upon a BlmplB but
very nicely adapted mechanical arrangement.
During their performance the "fire
eaters'' stood upon a large, gayly
carpeted box Hwmiingly designed to
lift tliein Into plainer view, but really
concealing two rubber bags Tilled with
Illuminating gas aud compressed hy
weights. To the heel of each man's
right shoe was affixed au ingenious
contrivance, terminating ia a spoilt.
Thin was the point of entrance for tho
gas. It was attached to a very
slender . tube of vulcanized rubber,
which, being of lhe same color as the
conjurer's diabolical costume, was invisible to tho spectators.
The tube was carried up the leg and
tlio back, aud inside both sleeves next
to tho skin, Ou reaching the wrist,
It was connected with a still smaller
flexible tube, flosh colored, and running along lhe palm to tho tip of thn
fore-finger, where It ended in an
opening hidden under tho nail. A similar branch passed up tho nock und
undor the chin as far as tho lips.
Iiy placing his heel, aud bearing
down accurately over a tube which
projected slightly at a certain spot
In the carpet, tho performer could
bring his body into communication
with tho corresponding reservoir
within tho box, and send the gaa
circulating upward until It reached
the finger tip, whero It was Instantly
lighted by an electric spark from a
machine concealed under his short
cloak, producing a stream of fire.
.lust so it was led to escape beneath
his. lips, tho flame then appearing to
issue from the mouth���an effect which
was aided by tlie performer's opening
the latter very wido aad throwing
his head back.
Tlie stage was always dimly lighted, and hut slightly Inclined, making
it still more difficult to distinguish
the tubes. Thus is another of these
clever feats removed from the domain of wonders.

The United States may bluster but
it will amount to nothing so far as the

���iffices of a friendly naiion in the settle
ment of any controversy, but cannot be
moved by the dictation of any power

only the claim of America but has

There are eyes that weep 'neath a cold
world's frown,
Where no pitying eves behold;
There are feet that wander the pathway
To a hell's eternal hold;
There are hearts that, crushed in their
anguish, break
When the joys and hopes of our life
No hand of friendship sooths their brow
As they weary seek to sleep;
Nor a kindly smile endears them now,
As they long forsaken, weep;
Nor can their orphan sou's possess
A touch nf parental tenderness,
Still the people call and believe them
Who sink their kind ill shame,
And hound to their death, in the seeth
ing den
Of hell's relentless flame,
Those once, whose opening  lives did
Like the heaven-born light in the driven snow.
Jane Francis.
By   A.   LlnrWy.
It had snowed hard for three days, and
the wind blowing a gale off llald Mountain, raged down Lightning Cieek, oblitcr
ating ihe sleigh track, and burying shaft,
house:, cabins, and the little town of Van
Wink.e under the drifts. Flumes were
choked, claims idle and all hands were
out shovelling snow.
That same morning a snow slide had
ro:ne down the mountain above "The
1'oint" claim, smashed in thc front of
Ml-trie llendesen's saloon, filling it three
feel deep with hard packed snow, just as
the old woman was starting the fire.
The hoys hearing the crash had rushed
tn the spot and digging and picking nvei
(he floor, found the maimed body, hoisted
her out and into the next house, where
hat drinks and hot blankets brought her
back ui life again. 1 If r first words before
she realised what Inul happ nn-d, being
''Sucre bleu Jim what for you .^keex^ like
that? you vantto break mine ribs, oh?"
Iim was often rallied about her skee/.es
after thai. Now this was Wednesday
and Lodge was to lie held that night at
IVirkerville 12 miles over the mountains,
ar.d I ivns to put in an appearance for
initiation, ll ivas t��o rough a day, antl
loo rough a irip to take alone, ami 1 bard
ly thought any of llie boys would care lo
go. However, breakfast over, afier a laik
together, Gerald, Muir, Powell and Ike
Van Vnlkenburg made up lheir minds to
no, as Muir said "we're all young and a
hard walk wouldn't kill us." So ahou'
o. o'clock, we startetl on snow shoes, tier
aid leading.
Up the road or where thc mad was
supposed to lie, we wallowed, sometimes
knee deep, sometimes up lo our waists,
while each step we look we had lo drag
nui' shoes loided down with snow,
every hundred yards or so changing lead
as ihe one in front became lil'cd out.
The wind whirled llie snow into oureais
and eyes and filled our track as soon as
made; hul on we struggled still upward
over Amador Creek, up on to and across
Dunbir flat, where ihe drills lay like the
ridges on a wash board: each ridge top
throwing up a snow --.pray es lhe wind
struck it. Many a header we look; our
clothes were full of snow, and our shirts
wringing wet; but tvefinally made Scotch
Jennies, a mile from our starting (mint
at half past tea���pretty slow time, and 11
miles yet m go.
Should we turn back or nnt, that was
the question; but the youug candidate
felt he couldn't wait another month, aud
the boys decided to go on, hoping for a
better road in llie timber ahead. So oft*
we started again, I in the lead, ail i��oiim
fairly well till wc reached ihe bridge over
liable Creek, where being blinded by the
snow, 1 walked over (he side into the
creek bed ten leet below. Muir nearly
came on top of mc, but  heard my yell as
1 went over the side.
Getting straightened up ihc next job
was to climb ba-1; to the road; but a high
cribbing on both banks of lhe creek kept
me pri.otier. Tliere were no ropes, no
ladders, no wings. Man is a creature
of infinite resource.-,. The boys shovelled
down to lhe logs with iheir shoes anil ty-
uiit two of them together let ihem down
.io me and clutching hold of ihc end 1
was dragged nut and up on tothe track
again. Powell gave my nether man what
he called ihe sign ol tiie Royal Mumpers
degree, lo teach me to keep my eyes
open. It was now noon and oniy two
miles covered; but our backset only
served to make us the more determined
to make Darkcrville il it took all niyht
and the next day. So we struggled on
through the soft snow in the timber till
wc reached the spring four miles out at
2 o'clock.
We were now pretly well nickered out
but we took a good drink Irom tiie never
failing spring, eat our lunch, had a smoke
and started on again considerably freshened up; but oh! it was dreadfully slow,
wearying and exhausting work. Only
those who have tried it know this, and
how disheartening it all seems. It is like
climbing a mountain of sand, only to be
thrown back again as the footing slip*
under. But on we lllgjed, dusk selling
in as we passed the Nigger, and went
down into Jack of Chilis canyon. Here
we bad what might have beeu a fatal
mischance; for a snow slide came down
oft*a bank only about 20 feet high, and
catching Muir and Gerald who were lirst
in the file buried them up to their arm*
pits, and packed round them so tightly
that our shoes were useless for digging
them out, and as they had theirs on they
could n it help themselves, night coming
on, the wind blowing, snow d'ifiing.
Indeed Ihey would have been buried by
morning and nothing known of their fate
until the summer had melted the snow off
their corpses. I blamed myself bitterly
for my unnecessary impatience, that had
brought us out in such weather, and risked the lives of two good fellows. Uul
there was no time to be lost. Powell
went on to Sam's at the creek cruising
half a mile off to get a shovel and lantern
while I slaved to keep the snow Irom
drifting on to the imprisoned men. It
was now dark, but 1 scooped away at thc
drills, and lit a pipe for each in lurn, and
after what seemed an age Powell got back
wiih S nn, ihe tools, light aud flask. Then
wc soon had the prisoners free but so
numbed with cold that it took some time
io rub lite into them. We next got down
to Sam's where we funnel a big pot of hot
tea, steak and fixings waiting for us.
Talk about whiskey as a stimulant I I
think that put of tea was the most delicious
draught we ever drunk, ll seemed to refresh every tired muscle, dispelled our
weariness, drove away lhe dumps, and in
fused Ire.h ambition to finish our trump.
We were loath to leave lhe cosy stove and
go oul into thc storm again; but finally
got away nt half past seven on the stretch
into llarkerville, which we reached at
half past nine, just as lhe lodge was out
for reces., and thc brothers were about
tirganuing a search party; for they had
heard by wire of our starling oul. Needless to dwell on lhe greeting wj received,
ofthe lunch they gave us at "The Antelope, " of ihe entering the mystic door, or
the happv lime afterwards in the anie
room, where old Jonathan Nun sang
"Fatal Cain was a man uf might" and the
rest contributed a gem of song, or a
speech, or recitation, to make the tune
pass pleasantly My four companions
were as jolly as any, but lhey all declared
lhat they'd make nn more 12 hour tramps
to lodge with Ilroiher Lindsay,

The /ullowlng extracts from tho
Iluffalu Express* report ol thc horrible crime of fifty of the CanalBoat-
mcu's Union, ay previously reported.
will servo to show tho diabolism prevailing among tlio members Ol that
orgailiation in the States:
At the turning Ol the handl ot
time from tho Closing of tho Sabbath
day to the beginning of tho week of
toil, between tho hours of 12 and l
o'clo&lt yesterday morning, a lawless
horde of halt-outlaw creatures attacked Capt. diaries Lorenzo Phillips, hla son, Charles L. Phillips, Jun.;
hia daughter, Flora Phillips, and
James .Murphy and Stephen Sliover-
hii crew, on his canal-boats, the John
Graft aad the May, at Scrtbne'r &
Co.'s docks on Tonawanda Island,
Cant, l'hililps li dead, lie was tdiot
through tlie left breaat by ouo of
tho horde ns he was defending his
children, his life and his property,
and died .Instantly. His son Is dead.
Ho was beaten by tho mob until
they Ielt htm lor dead. He lingered
iu agony until 12,45 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Flora Phillips lies
unconscious lu the home of Btrang-
erd iu Tonawanda. And out of the
mob ol almost 75 men, ouly 18 have
beeu arrested. A deputy United
States Marshal and two policemen
stood by and saw the rioters glut
their greed to kill. They offered no
resistance) they rendered uo assistance, They were put tliere for the
purpose oi protecting Capt. I-hilll-JS
una his property. The United'States
Marshal desetted tho boat ho was
Kent to guard, and walked sido by
side with oue of the mob, while the
rioters btoned tlie boats and delled
tho law.
Capt. Phillips was hauling coal
from Rochester to Buffalo, Ho got
word from Mr. Scrlbner to bring his
boats to Tonawanda.from Buffalo and
to tie them up at hid dock to get
a cargo oi lumber for Albany, The
rato agreed ou was $2.20 a thousand
feet. This is 25 cctt,ts higher than
thc association rate, no there can be
no accusation that Capt. Phillips was
underbidding them. Tho boats left
the Erie Basin last Thursday. Tlie
tug Davltt, oi the Scanlon Lino,
towed them to Tonawanda by way
Of the river. This waa to avoid
flaunting the ���'boats in the faces ol
tlie association men. There had been
many threat-*! among the association
boat men.
Captain Phillips was hard up. His
home in Constdntla is mortgaged for
$800. This mortgnge Is due. He
had to hnve $200 at once or lose his
homo. Tlio job with Mr. Scrlbner
meant the saving of his home. Ho
violated no agreement when he agreed
to tnke the lnmlicr, for he had mude
none. He did what any mau would
do. He took the job and saw liis
horn? safe omo more.
Time passed. It was 10 minutes
past tlio kalMiour. A curse broke
the stillness of tho night. Then footfalls sounded again. They wore
faint nnd indistinct at first. As tliey
came nearer they gathered in volume, in distinctness. They reached
the bridge. The Captain, standing
on the roof of the cabin of the Craft',
could sec men moving in the thin light.
They did not walk openly, with upright bodies and heads erect. Thoy
slunk along in twos and threes,
sneaking in tho shadow when they
could or hurrying through tho open
places when there  wus no shelter.
Then there wns a yell, followed by
another and another, The lumber
pile was alive with men. There were
over hnlf a hundred ol them. They
swarmed upou it from the ground, as
ruts rush up from tho hold of a sinking ship. And how they yelled
Curses, shout*-, howls nnd jeers rung
out in hideous bdudemonium. The
top of tho jilie of lUmher was covered
with the mob. On the edge, betwen
the nio!> and tho two men nnd helpless
sleepers on tho bouts haJow stood
the two policemen. For a moment
the molt [ell back, Then their loaders, men who were loaders la murder
becauso they woro more reckless, more
brutal, more bestial then choir follow.*;, sprang forward.
"Com.: on!'   they shouted.     "Come
on I    Oout back out now.'    Ilo men
Don t bo cowards!'
The two policemen closed with the
leader*-. Tno mob waited, watching
the struggle. To and fro surged the
rightors. Tho clubs sounded -sharp
nud quick, The lenders fell back.
Tliere waa a lull, Tho panting policemen stood fining the mob. -Uelow
on the cabin-roof stood Capt. Phillips, Silent nnd unmoved.
"To hell with the scab!"
With a shout, tho horde rushed for-
wnrd. They grubbed the policemen
and forced them aside. They tore up
boards from beneath their feet and
hurled them on, tiie boats below, Thoy
Bhowered stones ut the lone mnn on
the cabin roof.
"Kill him."
" Shoot him I"
" Drive them  out!"
"Cut their throats!"
Down from the lumber leaped tlie
deader^, with their fellow-murderers
at their heels. They sprung upon thc
"Stand back!" shouted Capt. Phillips.
IPs voice rung out above the turmoil
und the noise.
"This is my boat!" ho shouted,
"The mnn who injures It or mojests
my' people, dies!"
"Kill tho  1"
A mnn sprang forward nnd grappled with the captain. Thc club in thc
captain's hand was raised aloft.
" Look out!"
It was a voice of warning from one
of the mob. The man struggling with
the cnptaln sprang bach, and then,
; in the bright moonlight- in full view
j of tlie two policemen and thc deputy
I marshal, as they themselves admit,
one of tlie mob raised his hand. The
moonlight glistened on the barrel of
his revolver. The officers saw even the
white hand that hold the revolver.
There was a flash. Then another flash.
Capt. Phillips tottered, staggered,
stumbled across the deck of the Graff
and fell face downward on the May.
And as he fell, the mob jumped upon
hhu. And they kicked him nnd beat
him and pounded hini with sticks and
with stones. And through all this
tliese two policeman and this deputy
marshal stood meek and submissive.
And yesterday they swore they could
not recognize the man who fired  tho
With tho first shots of tho rioters,
Charles Phillips*) the captain's sou,
hurried on deck. Voung Shovbr followed him. Flora Phillips, the youug
girl, huddled under a bunk in the
���cabin, Murphy war*, in the cabin of
the Graff, The first move of tlie mob
when it brushed aside the policeman
was to try to bury the cabins beneath
a pilo oi lumber. They burred the
door of the Graff's cabin and then
hurled boards nt tho May's cabin.
Tliey smashed tiio windows with
stones and Jammed boards through
the open dour. They were trying to
get at tho girl.
"Kill them !" they howled. "Wipe
tho whole lot of them out!"
And volley alter volley of stones and
boards drove their way Into the cabin.
They knew no one WOtS iu there but
the girl. Her father lay dead, Her
brother was struggling with his murderers. Shover was driven to retuge.
The girl alone was left. And the mob
sought to murder hor.
As young Phillips came ou deck ho
ran forward to catch his father as he
fell. Before he could reach the captain he was seized and held last. Before his eyes his father fell, his head
striking the hard boards sounding
clear and distinct. No wonder the
son struggled. But his captors
laughed. They wero great hulks of
men and he was but a boy. They
laughed at him. Tliey jeered him.
They struck nim in the face and bade
him look upon his father. Then they
knocked him down. And tliese brutes
struggled with each other to kick him
and beat him and. jump upon him.
They pounded him with Ixnuds. Tliey
hammered him with stones. Then
they fell back and watched him
quiver and writhe, They bent over
that they might better hear his
groans and gloat over his agony.
Then tliey kicked him again. And the
boy tried to rise. Ho struggled to
liis hands and knees and tried to
Stand. They let him try, jeering and
leering at him. He stood up, swaying
to and fro. A man stepped ou,t Irom
the circle. Iu his hand was a revolver. Turning tho butt, he raised his
"Smash I"
Voung Phillips fell liko o  log.
"Lot go the lines!" shouted one of
the mob,
"Let go the lines!'' Tho mob took
up the cry. Tliey tore loose trom the
bow-lines. They tugged at the stern-
line.   The stout old hawser held last.
"Shove off the bows 1" shouted the
man who first yelled.
Tlie mob shoved off, using boards
from tho pile of lumber. Slowly the
boats swung around. Thoy gathered
more atones und hurled them at the
drifting boats. They tried to strike
the prostrate figure on the boards.
They cast hoards and sticks and clubs
at the moving craft. They followed
thom along the bank of the stream.
The two policemen walked with them.
And the deputy marshal walked side
by side with l'hil Porew, now under
arrest. And when tho boats got beyond thc reach of the mob thero were
yells of disappointment like unto the
snorts of disgruntled beasts.
Suddenly a glimmer of what thoy
had done came unto them. They
lookod at each other. Thoy woro
murderers. Thoy dropped their oyes.
Thon they slunk away. Thoy were
criminals, outcasts���murderers.
In tho cabin of the May, drifting
slowly with the Graff in tho current,
tliere was another picture. Flora
Phillips sat on the floor holding her
brother's head. The blood poured
from a gaping wound on the right
side of the head. Tho hoy was fobbing.
"Keep them off! Keep them ofl -"
ho cried.
Then   he   struggled   with   the girl,
thinking, in his delirium, that she was
one  of   his assailants.     He grappled
with her and hurled hev to the fh>or.
She elung to him, telling him tn Im* at
peace, as thc mob had gone.   But  he
did not understand her.  Then young
I Shover crept Into the cabin. And w-ben

The dead wns treated better thnn

to die. He died at 12.15 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Or. Horace Edmunds, of Tonawanda, was with him.
Ife dhl not regain consciousness, The
girl knew no one lu Txjiawnndu. Mrs.
Wattengel, wife of the undertaker,
took tiie girl to lur home. Dr. Edmunds was with her last night. Her
condition ls precarious, and her life is
in danger.

While no one denies that the right
of residing iu parts of China lias been
conceded 'by treaty to Christian missionaries! or that all violations of
that right ought to be punished, the
bcli.fiH spreading among well-informed men, says the New York Sun, that
tho attempt to convert tho civilized
peoples of India, China, Japan anu
Egypt la of doubtful expediency. The
signal change which has come over
intelligent opinion with logard to
this matter was brought out recently
at the meeting of the anthropological section of tho British Association*
when almost all th s scientists nnd men
of practical experience in tlio oast,
who took part In tho debate, concurred with Prof. Flinders Petrle in
deprecating efforts to impose Ideals
peculiar to our own race, ago or civilization upon countries which, on different lines, have already madu considerable progress in culture.
Lord Stnnmore, for Instance, letter
known as Sir Arthur Gordon, a colonial administrator of vast experience, oxprcssed a conviction that OS
much wrong has been inflicted by a
desire to carry out civilizing Ideas as
by violence It was a mistake, he
sold, to regard iho semi-civlllzed races
as immoral; their moral sense is very
unlike our own, but it is none the less
real. As to the attitude to bo assumed towara tho social usages and
peculiar habits <-������' the natives of a
given (Country- Lord ytanmore;* ol
course, conceded that certain customs,
such ns cannibalism, infanticide, widow burning and the wholesale plundering of inferiors by local chiefs, must
be put an end to at once and firmly.
But it would he well, he thought, to
permit the continuance of many usages repugnant and evon -repulsive to
European Ideas. In Bnch matters he
would trust to the transforming Influence of time. Herein ho cordially
agreed with 1'io'e-sor Petite* "who had
reminded his hearers that Paul of
Tarsus did not deem it needful, any
more than dpi Kph'tctus. to prohibit
slavery, polygamy or even gladiatorial shows. The elimination of such
evils was left to be brought about,
oh it was brought about, by the
growing enlightenment uud energy ol
the public  conscience.
To much the samo purpose spoke
Dr. Oust, long connected with the Indian civil service. He denounced the
continual attempt** of Europeans to
uproot ancient civilization not inferior
in some ways to thoir own, and to
destroy customs which nre not contrary to moral law. He implored missionaries to be moro tolerant toward
native Ideas nnd usages, and to do'
Christian things in a Christian way. A
long experience in India nad convinced Dr. Cust that the wisest plan
is not to interfere in tilings that are
not unlawful, and not to try to Anglicize the people of that country. He
considered it absurd for missionaries
to want to alter the marriage customs of a people which only tolerates
divorce In the case of Europeans, and
to dictate to natives naturally sober,
far more temperate, indeed, than
Englishmen, as tn what they should
eat and drink, He would evon go so
far as to protect the people of India,
China and Japan from preachers who
Intrude where they nre not wanted.
He mentioned thu instance of a missionary iu China who erected a building under circumstances which made
the aet a desecration, and in view of
such performances he wiih not surprised that from tlmo to time the
Chinese rose against the "foreign
devils." In closing Dr. Cust referred
to the sacrilegious act committed in
India by a Wesley an, by whom n
chapel wus built on the edge of a
sacred tank, but who was forced by
Lord Canning to raze thc structure
to the ground.
Dr. II. 0. Forbes and Professor Had-
don, both of whom had lived in New
Guinea, went further, and objected to
the methods followed by most mis-
sionarie*-. In dealing even with savage
tribes. Dr. Forbes thought tho Papuans should be left alone to adopt civilization in their o\vn time. He said
that, so far as his observation of
missionary work went, the actual religious change that took place in a
converted nation was very small, and
sometimes disadvantageous, as natives who went to chapel thought
themselves better than others und
became Insubordinate, Professor Hud-
don said that thu desire of the missionaries seemed to he to crush
natives In a Procrustean bed; they
forgot that tho only lasting civilization is that which springs from below.
He added that not n few good people
confuse clothing with morality, ami
that if the purpose was to extend the
market for cotton goods it should be
carried out openly and honestly, not
under the pretence of promoting religion. Englishmen, tho professor said
in conclusion, do not theoretically
wish to exterminate native races, hut
as n matter of fact they do so, and
which has happened in Tasmania,
where not a single native survives, is
lltoly to happen elsewhere lu the
Islands of the South Sea.

of n long Imprisonment. It would l>e

The Jailer, Hard, a picked mnn who

conspiracy to assassinate Bonaparte),
was a sometime fiery Jacobin. He
could not well encourage the expectations of his now prisoner, dreary as
tliey wero, for lie hail that very morning supervised the digging of a grave
In the castle moat. At midnight the
duke was awakened and confronted
with tho judge-advocate. Heal was
unaccountably abs. nt, and the'-interro-
gatory so carefully prepared by the
cliiol magistrate was uot at hand.
To tlio rude questions formulated by
ilulia, with tbe aid of a memorandum

repeated hints from the members of
the court-martial as to the consequences, would only reply time he had
a pension Irom England, and had applied to her Ministers fur military

Au old Scottish lire brigade superintendent, whose private pursuits
were of an agricultural nature, presided recently at the annual festival.
Ho proposed the first toast In the

That seemed a great sum ; wc could

"Motley telegraphed to the* police.

However, he managed to raise enough

been sitting with her hand In Philips,
and listening in thoughtful composure,
���' Tell me what Is to be (lone, dear .'
" Nothing that we can do," replied
Philip. "Motley Is going round to
the principal creditors; ho promised
when he had seen them to come
hero. He begged mo in the meanwhile, to keep quiet, lost nny unusual
action oa my part should Increase the
agitation ho ls trying to repress.*'
" Of course, at such a timo as this)
Mr. Motley must be unhindered In his
movements,'' said Madge; " I did not
mean that wo should interfere ln that
way. But ii money is needed to avert
bankruptcy, we shall do woll to collect what wo havo In readiness.''
" I hnvo thought ot that. There's
the house, our furniture, plate,
borers, nnd all thnt, I know. Cut
they are not ready money. A mort-
gugo can not lio ralsod on them In
U dny, or without exciting attention ''	
" But yuu forget, dear, the ��10,000

" That Is settled on yon; It is your

to tlilnit how mercenary a tasto of
prosperity had made him.
" All that I hnve Is yours, you know,
dear," said Madge to Philip; "andyou
must use this monoy Just as If It wero
vour own."
I was proud ol Madge ; and. glancing
ut Philip, I suw that he shared my
feeling. His eyes sparkled with delight, and ho could ouly press Madge's
hand in response. 1 knew she hnd
made him happier thnn if tho dishonest clerk had at that moment restored the hundred thousand ho had
I snt with my friends for half an
hour, nnd theu 1 bade them goud-bye,
it being close on tho strode of midnight. Philip went downstairs
with me to the door. As
he opened It a cab stopped
before us, and Mr. Motley pulled
his bulky figure np, and stepped down
heavily on tho pavement. I hurried
to escape, that I might not delay the
interview, lut catching sight of me,
he cried:
" Hn I Holderness ; stop a bit���I
want to spefik to you." And then
holding me by ono hand, and giving
the other to Philip, lie added. " No
secret from our old friond, I suppose ?
"Noun whatever," replied Philip.
" Then come along In; not upstairs,
llill. In the library, here ;,- wc shall
have It to ourselves."
We went Into tho library, whero u
light was burning. Mr. Motley threw
ldmsclf in a big clinir, taking off his
hat; nnd then blowing out his cheeks,
ho puffed a long broath through his
thick lips, and wiped tlie porspiration
from his forehead.
"Half a tumbler of seltzer, riill,
and a cigar; I'm dendi-hcat," he said.
Phil went to a cabinet to get the
desired refreshment, und Mr. Motley
" Well, 1 think It's all right, Phil.
I've been around to the big men. What

nnd as thick. But I've mado 'em

said i'hllj cheeerlly.
" Ves, It's all right, unless"���Mr.
Jlotley paused, and toon a deep
draught of seltzer���" unless anything'
happens to frighten tho hig men."
" Whnt may ' happon tu -frighten

" A damaging paragraph iu one of

be a fine thing for the newspaper people, but I'd niuzzlo the lot lUe dogs In
July, If I had my way."
"Surely, sir," said I, "established papers would not���"
"Well, I'm not sure ol them. But
it's the papers that ure trying to establish themselves I fear. These precious 'society papers, as they call
themselves, that come out one week,
and disappear the next, and will run
any risk, say anything, do anything,
to keep their heads above water. It's
ubout one of these papers I want to
spenk to you, Holderness.   You know
a man named Thornton, don't you ?"
"The author of 'Golconda* ?"
"That's the fellow."
"I know him professionally, that is
all. He has the management of tho
new opera bouffe he has written with
Mr. Cavello, and I have had to arrange the musical score to his libretto.
Personally I do not know him."
"That don't matter. You have to
conduct the thing when It is produced
next.week, hey?"
"Yes," I replied.
"And, of course, you could spoil the
wholo show If you chose V"
" Naturally, if I failed to conduct
properly, there would be a fiasco."
"That's Just it. He's at your mercy,
and he knows it. Of course nothing
ou earth' would Induce a man ot principle liko you to ruin a young author's first piece; but lie Is not to
know that."
"I don't quite see what you nre
driving at, Mr. Motley," said I, not
liking his tone.
" I'm coming to that (feint at once.
Thornton has Just started a paper-
edits it, or something. At any rate,
he ls at the head of it; and a scurrilous, vulgar, personal thing it is,
You've seen it, Phil���the Whip?"
Philip had not seen it, nor had I.
We said so.
"Well, you've lost nothing," said Mr.
Motley. "It's the worst of a bad lot.
Pirst person, I think you call it, all
through. ' I.' 1.' 'I,' all the way
through. I go to the theatre; I go
to vho races; I tattle in the club room;

if he takes up our affair we are dono
lor. So what 1 want you to do, Holderness, is to go to the office, find
Thornton, nnd prevent any article
concerning ns from nppeariug."
"Certainly,'! said I, rising at once;
"I will do my best, und I have a sufficiently, good opinion of liis honesty
to believe thut when I tell him the
truth about this robbery, he will
write nothing to your disadvantage."
"Yes, that's nil very well, Holderness," snid Mr. Motley ; "but If you
cuu let him understand, at tlie same
time, that If he injures) your friends
he injures you, and that you are not
the sort of man to suffer injury without avenging it, you'll do quito as
much towards keeping this press gentleman honest ns if you appealed to
his line feelings."
" I will do the bost I can," said
I, passing over as well us I could
what was certainly not an appeal to
mysenso of honesty.
"Don't bo ln a hurry; the last
train's gone. I'll take you to the oflice in my cab."
"There Is no news of Burns ?" asked
" The police have found that ho
started Ior Dover by the night mall,
and crossed the channel by tho Os-
tend boat; so we may take It for
grnntod that we shall see no more
of Thomas Burns." Ho muttered an
" By-the-by, sir," said I, still thinking o( the undertaking before me,
" it has Just occurred to mo that Mr.
Thornton Is a friend of Mrs. Motley'B.
Ho brought her to the theatre to
hear tho lirst rehearsal last Saturday."
" I know that. What then, Holder-
nessi ?"
" Why, it seems to me that ns the
husband of Mrs. Motley you huve a
claim upon his consideration "
I was interrupted by a burst ol
laughter from Mr. Motley.
" You don't know Mrs. Motley; you
don't know her," he said. " It Is Just
becauso she und Mr. Thornton are
good friends that I fear him." And
then speaking slowly, nnd with emphasis, he ndded : " If there is a dam-
agiag article in the Whip to-morrow
it will be due to my wifo. Don't you
see,that she would give anything In
the worjd to ruin Phil and his wile?"
It was too iuto. The office In Fleet
street was closed ; aud at the printer's
In White Friars, I wns told that the
Whip had gono to press. I hardly
slept that night, I was so nuxious
nbont my friends, ami la the nioi-ning
I went out betimes.
Outside a bookseller's shop in- tho
Westminster Bridge road, I saw the
contents-bill at the Whip, conspicuous
by the blnck figure of a rldiug-whlp
crossing it dlugonally from ton to
bottom. A lino in large letters caught
my eye ut once:
''Motley & liar owe Suspended Pay*
I bought n copy of the puju'r. On
the Inside page nailer the headline
"Money," 1 read "Smash!" aud below: "Messrs. Jlotley .V: Harlowe,

parties, I imagine, nnd to Mrs. Harlowe In particular. Society objects to
its favorite meddling with industry.
Therefore, for the sake of ull concerned, 1 hope In tho next issue to
report a meeting of creditors.
" A meeting of creditors is always
rich lu revolutions; this will not be
exceptional In that regard, I expect.
We have heard much during the Inst
half year of Mrs. Harlowe; I am
curious to know more about her husband.
" Daedalus got safely out of the

Ono can imagine with what indignation I read t'lls infamous article.
It seemed to mo tnat this flippant
vulgarity would serve to lessou Ita
ill effect; but I wus mistaken. A
gentleman seated behind mo ou the
omnibus had tho pnper.
" This is smart," said lio to a friend

" ' Money,' oh, n city article. J

" Nor I; but this paper makes 'a

It.'' On this 'recommendation the
friend ran through the article,    ,
" Yes, that's bold," said he, as he
handed back the paper. " That s

to show Uf) the real rascal What's
tho name of the paper? the Whip.
All I   I'll tako It in."
I had n iriend living ln tho Temple,
a man thoroughly acquainted with
the law on such subjects. I showed
him the paper, nnd asked if tho article was not ilbellous.
" Libellous I'' he exclaimed after
reading it, " I should thiuk it is. Kvery
lino is libellous. iMeu huve got two
yours imprisonment Ior waying one-
half as much.''
" I am glad to hear it," I   cried.
" But," he pursued, " I doubt if the
writer of this would bo punished. A
jury of shopkeepers could never be induced to look upon tho defence of their
.Interest as a punishable offence. Besides, these bankers would be the last
peopie in the world to institute proceedings. They are much too wise
to stir up muddy'water. And again,
how is a bankrupt firm to pay tiie
cost ot such an action ?''
" But supposing they are not bankrupt���suppose the insinuation ls
false?'- i.
" That's another matter. Depend
upon it, no man Iu his sauo-senses
would publish such an articlo as that,
unless he woro perfectly sure that the
event would more than Justify his insinuations. He knows that the
bunk wili not recover, that thero will
be bankruptcy and dissolution of
partnership, and that the inquiries
at the meeting of creditors will bring
out facts damaging to Mr. Harlowe'
"That I   know cannot be,'   said f.
"If Mr. Harlowe is your iriend, I
hopo you uro right. But I am greatly mistuksa if this smart writer misunderstood his subject.'*
Yielding to my anxiety, I went Into
the city. The Royal Exchnngo bolls
were chiming 12 o'clock as I passed.
The bank iu Throgmortoa street was
closed; a kuot of mon were talking
before the aoors. I learnt that tho
large creditors, so far from showing
patience, bad been the first to push
up to the pay-desk wheu the doors
wero opened. The " wolvea " had not
restrained their appetites till the
" ruts ' were satlsiled���und this was
duo, Jlr. Motley assured us, to the
action taken by the Whip.
" My wife has tuken her time, but
she s done the business thoroughly,'
suid ho. He made no attempt to
screen his wife; ou the contrary ho
made us understand that this ruin
was tiie result of Mrs. Motley's! vindictive hatred of poor Madge.
Philip hud proposed to use his wife's
money, telling Motley of her offer.
" It Is what I expected of her," said
Motley ; " you ve only to study a woman s character for a week to know
beforehand how sho will act
under certain conditions. It'B
a noble offer, l'hil, but as ior availing
ourselves of It, Unit's out m tho question. If my wlio could lie brought to

On the face ot it there was overy
probability that the event would verify his prediction, and that financially
the two partners, after a certain
lapse of time, would recover their former position.
But it was obvious, at tho n. me
time, that Philip aud his wife had
lost their standing iu society, une It
was doubtful whether Madge could
ever ugnin take a foremost place
among people ol social distiuctlou.
livery ono couBcmued Philip. The
clerk's embezzlement was overlooked ;
Philip was sadiiieii with tlie blame of
having brought ahout the disaster. I
heard the same cry, no mutter whom
I spoke to on tlio subject. The robbery wns an acciucnt that lind precl-
pitatcd the dlsustcr; the fundamental
cause waa Harlowe's culpable neglect nnd reckless extruviigunco. And
those who blumed him for neglect of
business were the same who declared
that Motley linu dune ull that man
possibly could do to improve the business, and thut it could not have been
bettor mannged. When people give
way to prejudice they aro unreasonable and inconsistent. Tho influence
of the Whip was visible In this, for
peoplo showed themselves vastly learned ubout Daedalus and Icarus nt this
time, though they had got their
knowledge of tilts classical Btory,
doubtless, ap I had���by looking It up
in tlie classical dictionary.
And tlds unthinking, unjust world
wus just as one-sided ln praising Mr.
Motley as it was in blaming liis part-
ner. No one ever spoke of his faults
���never discovered that ids expenditure had been going on by thousands
for years, while Philip lived content
on a few hundreds; took no notice of
the fnct that he had never warned
Philip of his danger, but rather lulled
him into a sense .of security and indifference. To hear people talk, one
would have thought that Mr. Motley,
was the benefactor of bis species, and
above reproach. The creditors shook
hands with him warmly, whereas,
they would, I believe, have torn Philip
to pieces had he beeu left to tholr
mercy. They seemed to regard him
as rucing people look upon a wolsher. I
We looked forward���und not with
pleasure���to friends calling upon
Madge to offer condolence. Not ono
of all her acquaintances culled or
wrote to hor. The Harlowes were I
in dlslavor.
Philip    felt    this    neglect    keenly.
Madge Buffered also, not oa her own
nccount, but because she saw tbat her j
husband      reproached    himself,    aud
grieved      for    her.        He      would
havo    had    her    leave    Loudon till i
the      affair      was    all    over,    but j
she would not go without hlui.    Her !
place wus by hini, in trouble nnd in -
Their misfortune brought them ono
new acquaintance, though It drove
the old ones away.
A gentleman came in a brougiinm
to the house���a partlculuiiy respectable and. well-to-do-looking gentleman. He told Philip that he had often
had the* pleasure of being useful '.o
persons of distinction, and should be
happy to assist him if he was In
pecuniary embarrassment. He would
buy furniture, plate, Jewels, horses,
anything and everything, and uo
matter to what amount, and give
ready money. Philip took his curd,
and rang the bell for tlio servant to
open tiie door to liis friend in need.
His name was Hart M. Lazarus.
Potter was detestable at this time.
Ho had got Into society by hanging
to his daughter's skirts, nnd, under the spell sho cast upon those
about her, they had accejited hensfa-
ther ns a genius, and taken his
wretched sketches for works of art.
He had been welcomed Us uu eccentric artist wherever Madge visited.
Now, when he presented himself ut
these houses, expectiug to be admitted upon hts own merits, he found
the doors closed against him. Ho had
the nssurnnee to hiut to mo one day
that Philip had brought him to ruin.
Then I lost putience, and told him I
could not believe that until I saw
him ugnin in his old Jacket, and dependent upon his daughters for support. I regretted losing my self-command, 1 thought the man would
never speak to me ngain after saying
that. But I wus In error. He spoke
to me the next duy us though nothing Had been said���only he wus careful not to'say anything against Philip
ln my henrlng. That was liis character.
Business brought JIr. Jlotley frequently to Orandison House now. He
hud never lookod tietter, more energetic or in better spirits; and tills
seemed marvellous to us, who were
worn with cure nnd anxiety, I say
us, for my friend's misfortunes
weighed as heavily upon uie ub upon
them, I believe. But then, he wns
constantly busy In arranging this,
settling thnt, or achieving something, whereas we were of necessity
Inaojlve, We could dot nothing,;' und
thut made our  trouble greater.
It was imjiossiblo to overcome our
anxiety, despite Jlr. Motley's hopeful assurance. Ile never filled to speak
''Don't worry���don't worry yourselves," he would say. "it's all right;
don't take It to heart. Look at me I
I don't let It iqisct me; nnd we're
nil iu tlie same position. What's done
cun't be undone. Everything's going
un ns well as It can go. In a week
or two nil our troubles will be over."
He couldn't understand the feelings
of sensitive nud delicate minds, lie
laughed and Joked with the men who
came to value the house and etfects.
To Philip it was deeply humiliating
to answer their necessary questions,
nnd to show tliein what valuables
belonged to him, und whicli wero
his wife's property. .Sleep did not

How interminable the delay seemed.
How wo prayed for trie day to come
when we might saj, "Now we know

At length the meeting took nlace.
I spent the day at Orandison House.
It was better for Jfadge tn talk
about the nflnlr thn*n to brood over
it In silence.
About 5 o'clock PhiUp came home.
His appearance atariued us. (He wns
pale and haggard. I had never seen
him so completely shaken nnd unnerved. For some few minutes he
could not speak to us ; he could not
find words to telt us what had happened. Madgo led him to a. seat, and
sitting beside him, held Ida hnnd,
while her Bwcet eyes seemed to say.
"Have uo fear, dear; I am strong
enough to share your  burden."
"They accuse me of dishonesty,
Madge," he said, ln .a low tone, his
voice and lip quivering,   i
"Who accuses you ?" cried' JIudge,
Indignantly. ,.
"Everyone���not in so many words,
but by imputation. They will not'believe that I hnve been n tool, and unless they allow that, my carelessness
must be regarded ns dishonesty; I
ought to have ascertained my real
position; I ought to have known thnt

"Hns Mr. Motley deceived you ?"
askod Madgo.
"No. I,have deceived myself, I cannot in** my fnult on hia shoulders. He
hns hidden nothing from me. , The
heavy outlay lie hns lieen milking on
the brewery���tho investment of spare
capital���he told mo nil thnt. Ho has
said again and again, 'Wo are sailing close to the wind,' but I never
took the trouble to understand whut
that Implied. It Is my fault, and mine
Madge was thoughtful for 60me moments, then she said��� "'
"I am trying to understand how
your neglect cau be considered dishonest."
"Tliey believe that I foresaw this
failure, or, at least, Its probability,
when I drew out from the business
evctry available pountd, ami transferred
It to you."
"Ah I now 7 begin to see," said
"There is nothing Illegal In using
the money In that way. The bnlance-
sheet shows that the firm wus in n
position to pay twenty-shillings ln the
pound wheu I drew the money out.
How must this appear to men of ordinary sense ? It is not the net of a
fool, but a clever pieco of bus'itcus,
such as might be practiced by a trickster���a man wlio Is a thief at heart���
a rogue who has tlie cunning to client
without tlie risk of punishment." He
spoke in passion.
"Philip I Philip 1" remonstrated
Mndge, in  a   gentle voice. -
"It will be said that you havo married a rogue, Mudge,"
"It shall not he snid���It' shnll not
be thought I" cried Madge, excited in
her turn. "We will not touch a single
farthing of that money. Everything
shall be given up���everything but the
presents you gave me before I wns
your wife, Philip."
''You will make this sacrl Ice to save
my honor V" asked Philip, with glowing emotion.
"Yes, love, n.nd count It cheaply
bought. You think I cannot live without luxury ? Ah, you Bhall see I Your
.happiness is more to me than all the
world. You shall keep your good
name ; with that we sliall be better
off than it we were ever so rich without It."
She was a real heroine���a true
woman, and jio longer a frivolous,
silly girl. And so Philip's misery wns
turned to a great Joy.
They sent for Mr. Lazarus, nnd ho
valued tho diamonds and plate, and
everything that belonged to Madge,
and, according to his offer, wrote a
cheque in payment for them. Then
Madge went with Philip to-the London and Westminster Bunk, where
she drew out lier sixteen thousand
pounds, and tills, with tlie Jew's
cheque, they took to Throgmortou
street, where they obtained an Interview with the gentleman who acted
as receiver for the creditors. Then
Madge said, holding the cheques ia her
hand��� .     i -.
"This Is all that'Mr. Harlowe has
given mo since 1 have been his wife.
I give all buck to him freely now to
use as he thinks right." And she hold
out the money to her husband.
Then Philip, taking the cheques,
not without emotion, handed them to
the receiver.
' When 1 reelected that they had
given up all they had In the world,
nnd that this was the Inevitable consequence of preceding events, I wondered how it was that Mr. Motley,
with his extensive perspicu/elty and
knowledge of human nature and Individual character, had not foreseen the
event. ;*'
