The two reasons for democrats
favoring the income tax are, first,
they have got to have the money,
and second, it is like England, you
know. England has dictated the
"reform in tariff," and why not a
tax on incomes? The income tax
is not popular in England, bjt never
the less it is a fixture.
The fact that 30,000 wool growers
of the west have forwarded a pro
test to Washington against the free
wool provision of the tariff bill sug
gests the ide that these same farm
ers should habe made their protests
against a possible free wool contin
gency at the ballot box in Novem
ber, 1892. The farmers of the west
were among the people who de
manded a change in the administra
tion policy of the government.
Perhaps they believed the change
would only affect the other fellows.

One day when Mother Natnx
Was in a pleasant mood
She called about her Youth and Health
And others of her brood.
"Jly children, ire have fashioned.

"There's not so sweet," cried Nature,
"A flower the wild bee sips.
We'll name it!" And the flowret
Was called a maiden's lips.
SHE WAS PEBTTY.
I had stated my intention of going to
see Miss Kitty clearly enough, bat in
doing so I had no very fixed idea as to
what I should do when I did see her,
and in fact I was entirely nonplused by
the whole situation.
I determined to retire to my ham
mock and think over matters in gen
eral. As I lay there, swinging lightly
over the water, and with the distant
sound of the weir lulling my senses
pleasantly, it is not to be wondered at
that I fell into dreamy reverie.
Old half forgotten recollections came
thronging upon me; of little flaxen
haired Kitty, whom I used to torment
and laughingly ask to be my little
wifie, nearly a dozen years ago, when
she was a little chit of 10; of her father,
my old friend John Dobson, -who used
to say in his sober business way, "And
so she shall be, Mildenhall, if I can help
you, and yon care to have her when she
is grown up;" of that quaintly touching
clause in poor Dobson 's will 'by which
he bad done all that lay in his power to
And I, engrossed in turning over
money in tho city, had clean forgotten
all about her!
I was aroused by the sound of voices
and looked round. There, in the very
identical place where Mr. Bob Tyncker
had done his extremely futile fishing in
the morning, he and Kitty were sitting
"And so the old fellow and a queer
old fellow hois, too," Mr. Bob was say
ing, "will be round at the house this
very afternoon to see about claiming
"Oh, Bob!" said Kitty, trembling.
"I say, Kitty," said Bob mischiev
ously, "suppose he really wants to stick
to his old idea of making you his little
wifie, eh? What shall you do then?"
"Oh, Bob,. don't," said poor Kitty.
"He has been such a bugbear to me late
ly that that" ("that there is a dan
ger of a young lady shedding tears at
the very mention of his name," 1
thought to myself grimly, for Kitty did
not seem to be able to complete the sen
"Nevermind, Kitty," said poor Bob,
hugging her tenderly. "I am a brute to
have suggested such an idea. If he
doesn't refuse to have you, why, you will
just have to refuse him, you know, and
that will bring the whole matter to the
usual way of doing things, from a young
lady point of view, you see."
"So it will," said Kitty, brightening
up once more; "but, Bob, then the $25,
000 will have to go to the Methodist
chapel, and that is just the very thing
that has been making uncle so terribly
"Let him be, " said Bob stoutly. "It
won't hurt us after today; you will be
free then, you see, and marry whoever
you like. And we have plenty to set up
housekeeping on between us, without
the beastly money let him be angry if
' 'And so he is, sir, " shouted Mr. Dob
son suddenly, poking his head over the
top of the bank. "So he is! It would
make a saint savage to be set at defiance
in this way. I begin to think"
"Stop!" I called out, rising hastily
in my hammock.
Splish ! Somebody had fallen into the

boots above water more frequently than
my head, I am afraid, till I was sud
denly grasped by the collar firmly.
"Keep cool," said my young friend
Bob Tyncker authoritatively for he
it was nimbly swimming on his back
with two legs and one arm, and draw
ing me after him with theother. "Keep
cool; I've got you all right!"
"Cool it is!" I thought to myself, my
spirits reviving as I felt myself towed
along right across the river! For Bob,
it seems, like a retriever he certainly
swam as well as one would not con
descend to lay me anywhere but at the
very feet of his mistress.
"There, at last! hurra"
An overwhelming rush of water
across my face cut short my self, con
gratulation ; 1 was fairly under, in fact.
And the remarkably unpleasant
thought flashed upon me that 1 was
driving down under tho dipping bnsh.
But a spasmodic jerk from Tyncker
brought me to tho top once more, and
as I gasped for breath I heard his voice:
"Shift for yourself catch hold of the
bush I'm going!"
I caught the branches as high up as
possible and got a glance behind me.
Tyncker was not only going ho was
gone, diving down under the bush, hav
ing sacrificed himself to keep me from
a like fate.
I Eaw his face disappearing beneath
the water; I heard the despairing cry of
Kitty frora the bank, and letting go my
own hold with one hand I thrust down
and caught tho poor fellow's collar and
turned a remarkably wild eye to the on
lookers. Tho old gentleman was helplessly
shouting and running to and fro, but I
saw his niece rapidly unknotting from
her waist that heavy scarf of gold which
she had worn all day. Then, like a
flash of fire in the sunlight, one end
leaped out at me. Well thrown! Tho
embroidered fringe fell across the
branches and over my wrist. Quick as
thought I had quitted my useless clutch
on the yielding twigs, and with a con
vulsive leap in the water had got a dou
ble turn of the scarf about my wrist.
Of course I went under, but with a
mind fully made np upon two points
that nothing but death should tear me
from my hold upon that scarf of
course not! and that if ever I was to bo
pulled out alive Tyncker should come
I don't know how long I held my
breath an age, I fancy, and then a
rush of fire swept across my vision. I
was gone it struck me forcibly a
burning, exhilarating sensation in ray
throat, and tho sound of a voice speak
ing, as it seemed, many miles away.
The voice drew close to me. at a
bound, and opening my eyes I saw
some one stooping over me, brandy flask
in hand and an expression of horror on
bis face. That expression instantly van
ished as he caught my gaze.
"Thiaone is all right, Kitty; he is
coming round fast. Here, take the flask
and give Tyncker some more brandyl
Cheer up; ho will be all right in a min
Some suspicious sounds in my im
mediate neighborhood caused me to turn
my head feebly in the direction whence
they were proceeding, and then I knew
Of courso! We had been in the river
and had been pulled out again! For
there, on his back, even as I lay on
mine, lay Mr. Bob Tyncker, and on her
knees beside him, bending low over his
face, was Miss Kitty Dobson. And the
golden scarf sadly changed for tho
worse lay midway between us.
uno glance was sumcient to assure
me that Mr. Bob Tyncker wad nearly as
far advanced on the road to recovery as
I was myself, and that Miss Kitty held
a most exalted opinion of his lato ex
ploit. They made a pretty picture.
But the old gentleman s face grew
cloudy as ho looked at it. Ho leaned
over me in irritated Bilence, brandy
flask in hand, and I thought it was time
"How are you, Dobson?" I said, with
a faint Binile. "I am afraid you don't
recognize me in this draggled condition,
"Why, so it is!" exclaimed the old
gentleman. "It's Mildenhall! Why,
how do you come to be down here? I
say," he continued in a sort of stage
whisper, and with a troubled look at
the others, "I am very glad you have

way in the direction of tho young peo

you were to have the first say in that

"So I was," I rejoined, "and I will

"Good!" said Mr. Dobson. looking
much relieved at my alacrity and call
ing the young lady. "Come here, Kit

It was a very limp hand that I man

"You see that I have lost no time in
coming down to see you, Kitty," I said,'
holding her hand the while, and think
ing it best to plunge at once in medias
res. "You reach the age of 20 today,
"Yes," said poor Kitty faintly, and
trying feebly to get her hand away, but
I still held on. "There is something in
a certain will which concerns you and
me. I want to talk to you about it."
"Yes?" whispered pocr Miss Kitty,
still more faintly and with another fee
ble and futile attempt to draw her hand
from mine. "Would not some other
time when you are dry?"
"No, my dear," I said. "I would
rather do it now. You are a very pret
ty girl and a very brave and clever one,
and you have just saved my life with
your scarf, as I realizo very plainly, so
that you will always hold a very dear
place in my heart.

I couldn't help pausing a moment to
enjoy her consternation "that I will

presented itself, "Are we, by all these

of our children or merely occupying
their minds?" Parents cannot delegate
their responsibilities a truism vigorous

public schools. And on whom does the
duty of early training chiefly devolve but

Brooks Greenleaf, the president of the
New York State Suffrage association,
one feels in the presence of an individual
ity whose strong influence is accentuated
by much kindness of heart. Her features
denote energy, her voice is clear and in

of the cause she has so warmly espoused.
Mrs. Greenleaf was made president of
the State Suffrage association in 1890
and since that time has made unceasing
effort to organize the state into county
and local societies. During the last year
she, with the assistance of the secretary,
circulated over 8,000 documents.
Mrs. Greenleaf was nominated by the
Democrats of the Twenty-eighth senato

cause, polled a handsome vote, but was
defeated with the rest of the ticket. As
a presiding officer Mrs. Greenleaf is clear

An enterprising west end dressmaker

Many years ago, when Paris held, as
she does now, the scepter of fashion, the
only fashion plates were largo dolls sent
out from that city to all the great cities,
one every six months, to announce to
the world the new modes. In Florence,
the center of all that was sumptuous
and beautiful in dress, by whose old cos
tumes many of our newest dress ideas
are inspired, the doll was exhibited pub
licly on the portico of a great central
palace on the feast of the ascension, and
the famous Venetian beauties and their
needlewomen were early at the shrines
adjacent that they might on their way
catch a glimpse of the new mode.

of some of the great costumers, a lady
who orders at tho cost of a king's ran

may see it and study it made upon a doll
shaped like herself in figure and modeled
after the same type in coloring. But to
have the different prevailing modes il
lustrated on figures of all types will,
with sensible women, bring about a new
and better dress era, for with the pow
er to see ourselves as others see us we
could not make such blunders in selec
tion as the following of pictured models
inevitably results in.
The woman of generous proportions
would be cured of her passion for plaids
and bright hues could she see for herself
their disastrous effect; the woman of
slight build would realize how like au
exclamation point she looks in a black
gown; the little fluffy woman would
never try to do tho severe and stately;
the majestic would eschew frills and
fripperies; the elderly matron would
leave the delicate tints for youthful faces
and realize that as she grew in years she
needed stronger tints and richer fabrics
and more carefully adjusted and accu
rately fitted toilets than when youthful
grace lent charm to even a homemade
gown. Above all, woman would have a
chance to learn the first and great com
mandment in dress, which is not to form
her gowns upon what some one else
wears unless that some one else is ex
actly her own height, weight, complex

1 Suffrage In New York.
The New York court of appeals has
affirmed the previous decision of Justice
Williams of the New York supreme court,
which was afterward upheld by the same
court at its general term, declaring nn
constitutional the law enacted by the last
legislature allowing women to vote for
county school commissioners.
This decision was not unexpected.
Uuder the us:al principle of interpreta
tion the constitutional limitation of tho
word "male" is considered applicable to
all officers specifically named and pro
vided for in the state constitution. The
school commissioner is a county officer
specified in the state constitution. This
decision does not deprive the women of
New York state of the right which they
have had since 1880 to vote in towns and
cities for members of school boards, these
local elections being subject to regula
tion by the legislature. Nor would it
prevent the legislature from extending
full municipal suffrage to the women.
The Illinois supreme court drew a sim
ilar.uistinction. In 1891 the Illinois leg
islature passed a bill to enable women to
vote for all school officers. The consti
tutionality of the law was called in ques
tion. The supreme court decided that
the legislature could not give women the
right to vote for couuty superintendent
of schools because that office was named
in the state constitution, but that the
women could vote for all other school
officers, even to tho regents of the state
university, smce these were not named
in ine constitution. Boston Woman's

ago. Many of the White House servants
as many as she could take went with
her to New York and are now again in
the White House. In addressing her
servants Mrs. Cleveland is always par
ticularly courteous and speaks as if she
were talking to people for whom she has
high respect and even regard.
Another idea which Mrs. Cleveland
sees carried out in the management of
her servants is to provide them with the
means of amusement. They can not only
have nights "out," but nights "in." And
they are encouraged to enjoy themselves
like privileged members of society. In
the Clevelands' home there are always a
servants' dining room, a servants' sitting
room, and if there is an unused boiler
room or attic it can be used for dancing
and evening frolics.
There are no restrictions as long as the
household duties are faithfully per
formed. Neither aro any inquiries made
upon reliinons topics. But all aro re
quired to attend some church. With
such rational ways of dealing with the
"servant girl question," it is no wonder
that Mrs. Cleveland does not find iC a
perplexing one. Boston Journal.

Boston's Unemployed Women.
Unemployed women are at a greater
disadvantage than men owing to lack of
training and a greater limitation of the
kinds of work provided. Tho charwomen
cannot sew. Everybody knows that
housework impairs a woman's ability to
do nice sewing. Her fingers loso their
elasticity and deftness by the continual
use of the broom, scrubcloth and con
tact with the stove and cooking utensils.
The comparison holds m a greater degree
between the heavier household labors
and the commoner kinds of sewing. She
who washes, irons and scrubs does not
like and is indeed unfitted to sew at all.
The Bedford street sewingroom, there
for, can from the nature of things only
furnish work for a very limited number
of the unemployed women. And the rest!

known physicians. For reasons that are

"Sho is a divorcee," the physician
said, "and is qaite well known in soci

rich, but for a long time was addicted
to tho uso of opium. The habit grew
so strong that her relatives advised her
to go to Homo sanitarium for treatment.
For a long timo she refused to do this,
but when they threatened to havo her
confined in some asylum she yielded
and came to our retreat
"She brought a nurse with her a
clever, bright faced girl whom Bhe
paid 850 a week to wait on her. We
were all greatly surprised as the days
went by to note that she did not seem
to be at all depressed, as most people
are during the first few weeks of ab
Btinence from tho drug. Sho se'emed as
bright and as cheerful as on the first
day. I said to her once:
"You don't seem to mies your

thought it did.'
"One day, after Bhe had been there
over a month, wo discovered by mere
accident what kept her socheerful. One
of our attendants caught her in tho act
of taking opium. When wo asked her
where she had obtained tho drug, she
refused at first to tell. After a little
urging, however, she told tat that she
had brought a lot of optura with her.
"Tho matron searched her reom, and
when she came to the office to report
sho was almost speechless with amaze
ment. Tho woman had hidden little
packages of opinin in every conceivable
Dart of all her dresses. There was
opium in the eleeves, in tho ruffles, in
the lace, in the lining and in every
pocket. There was opium sewed inside
her garters and in her undergarments.
Sho even had opium in the papers which
sho used to curl her hair.
"It was her maid's duty, we learned,
to administer this opium to her in such
a way that we would not detect it.
Tho young girl always curled her mis
tress' hair and took care not to spill
any of the drug in the curl papers.
"Tho maid was promptly sent home.
Her mistress was relieved of all her
clothine and was supplied with new
dresses and placed in another room.
For several weeks she underwent tho
depressin;' cxperienco of all who break
off the habit. AU her brightness and

now cured, however, and is married

Nothing succeeds like success. In Colo

The Welsh Ladies' Choir.
The fame of tho "Welsh ladies' choir,
which won prizes m Chicago, has some

the result that the queen invited the
members to sing at Osborne on Feb. 8.
Her majesty has been unusually gay this
season. There have been tableaux vi
vauts, concerts or theatricals every week
since Christmas, and a stage has been
specially fixed in the Indian room, the
gorgeous annex to Osborne, which was
built at a cost of thousands of pounds,
all taken from the royal privy purse. The
queen has definitely promised to attend

The Typical American.
The tvpical Americans havo all been
western men, with the exception, let us
say, of Washington. Washington had
not had much of European culture. The
qualities that made him a great com
mander and a great president were
qualities which would have made him
an equally great frontiersman. You
cannot iniagino Hamilton or Madison
or Livingston or John Adams or the
Pinckneys living tolerably on the fron
tier. They are not Americans in the
sense in which Clay and Jackson and
Lincoln are Americans. Wo may wish
that tho typical .Americans of the past
had had more knowledge, a more culti
vated appreciation of tho value of what
was old and established, a jnster view
of foreign nations and foreign politics;
that they had been more like Webster
and less like Jackson, and we may hope
that the typical American of the future
will be wiser and better poised. But in
the meantime tho past is to be under
stood and estimated as tho facts stand,
and only a thoroughly sympathetic com
prehension of these men, who have actu
ally been the typical Americans, will
enable us to effect that purpose. The
fact that Clay rather than Webster,
Jackson and not John Qnincy Adams,
represented the foices which were really
predominant and distinctively Amer
ican in our development is commentary
enough on any theory that makes either
of the peculiar sections of tho Atlantic
seaboard the principal or only theater
of American history. Forum.

Tho Chinese legation has always been
an object of curiosity in Washington,
and the mysterious goings on in the fa

failing source of wonder and speculation.
Now that the legation has a magnificent

all houses in the city and at the Chinese

new Chinese servants. The gas bill strip

The minister at once gave orders to

of mourning were brought out, the shut
