It may,  loo. he reasonably contended-that the  increased      opportunities    for women  must have  a saiu'ta'iy influence upon  Hie race  by   placing women   in abet  ter . economic   position,  and   enabling  them to insist upon a higher standard  of -noraiity and conduct in  men     before they  will consent to  give   their  hands.   Women's     labor is  only mischievous  when it reduces  male labor  to ��������� a parasitic  position,  as   in       the  town of Dundee, where, owing to the  fact that the "competition  of the   low  wage countries of  the cast  has  to be  faced employers cannot pay men, and  these who should be workers subsist  upon the wages of their wives.

Danger In  Poisons.
It Is Inmentable that neiuier repeated
warning nor sad experience seems to
have the desired effect or making the
ordinary person cautious in the use of
poisons. In the last few days three
children have died presumably from
taking poison that was carelessly loft
within their reach. One would suppose
that such accidents would by this tinm
have become almost impossible, yet
they are constantly recurring with a
frequency that demands further warning. ' If parents would learn to keep
poisons in a place where they could not
be reached by others there would be
fewer accidents.
it is the old principle of familiarity
weeding contempt. ' It cannot be toa
strongly impressed upon every one that,
ihe only immunity from danger Is'
lhrongb constnnt care and precaution.
It Is ft lesson that needs to be Impressed
upon every individual without tucccp-
