Is; iak o-f wifely ambition, ; good and had. How imj or:a:it that , every wife have lie" Jiiiibiiion. an ele vated, lihtcous and divinely apj-roved ambition. ; And here let me say what I am most anxious for i.3 that woman, not waiting for the rights d-. nied her or postponed, ; promptly and. decisively employ the rights she already has in poedon. Some say fche will l e in fair way to pet all her riphts when she pets the right to the ballot box. I wish that the experiment might be tried and settled. I would like to see all women vote and then watch the result. I do not know that it would change anything for the 1-etter. Most wives and daughters end si.-'ers would vote as their hu.-bandi tnd fathers and brothers voted. Nearly all the families that I know are solidly liepublicun or Democratic or Prohibition. Those fami lies all voting would make more votes but no difference in the result. Bc-Hides that, as now at the m11h men are bought up by the thousands, women would lo liought up by the thousands. The moro voters the more opjiortunity for jiolitical corruption. Wo have several million more voters now than are for public good. Wo arc told that female suffrage would correct two evils the rum business and tho insulliciency of woman's wages. About the rum business I have to nay that multitudes of women drink, and it is no unusual thing to hmi them in tho res traurants so overjiowered with wine and beer that they can hardly sit up, while there are many siM-alled resix-ctablo res taurants where they can go and tako their champagne and hot toddy all alone. Mighty teniH.-ranee voters thse women would make! Ik-sides that, the wives of the rum sellers would have to vote iu the interest of their husband's business, or have a time the inverse of felicitous. 1 It-sides that, millions of rcsix-ctable and ri lmed women in Ameriea would prob ably not vote at all, Ix-cause they do not want ti) go to the jhiIIs, and, on the other band, womanly roughs would nil go to tiie polls, and that might make woman's vole 011 tin? wrong side. There is not in my mind inueh prospeet of the expulsion of drunkenness by female bidfrage. As to woman's wages to lie corrected by woman's vote, I have not much faith iu that. Women are harder 011 women than men are. Masculine employers are mean enough iu treatment of women, but if you want to bear Ix-ating down of juices and wagi-s in perfii-tion, listen how some women treat washerwomen and dressmakers and female servants. Mrs. .Shyloek is more merciless than Mr. Slivlock. Women, 1 fear, will never get righteous wages through woman's vote; and as to unfortunate womanhood, women art: far more cruel and unforgiv ing than men are. Alter a woman has made shipwreck of her character men generally drop her. but women do not so nnieh drop her as hurl her with the force of a catapult clear out anil olF and down and under. . I have not much faith that woman will ever get merciful consideration and jus tire through woman sulfrage, yet I like experiments, and some of my friends in whose judgment I have confidence are so certain that alleviation would come by such process that 1 would, if I laid tin? j lower, put in ever3' woman's hand the vole. I cannot sv what right you have to make a woman pay taxes 011 her property to help supiorl city, otate and national government, and yet deny her the opportunity of helping decide who shall be nuvyor, governor or president, l'ut let every wife, not waiting for ihe vote .she may never get, or, getting it, ibid it outbalanced by some other vote not fit to lie trust, arise now in the might of the eternal GihI and wield the power of a sanctified wifely ambition for a gixxl approximating the infinite. No one can so inspire a man to noble purposes as a noble woman, and no one so thoroughly degrade a man as a wife of unworthy tendencies. While in my text we have illustration of wifely ambi tion employed in tha wrong direction, society and history are full of instances of wifely ambition gloriously triumphant in right directions. All that was worth admiration iu the character of Henry VI was a reflection of the heroics of his wife Margaret. William, Prince of Orange, was restored to the right path by the grand qualities of his wife Mary. Just inian, the Roman emperor, confesses that his wise laws were the suggestion of his wife Theodora. Andrew Jackson, the warrior and president had his mightiest re-enforcement in his plain wife, whose inartistic attire was the amusement of the elegant circles in which she was invited. Washington, who broke the chain that held America iu f oreign vassalage, wore for forty years a chain around his own neck, that chain holding the miniature likeness of her who had been his greatest inspiration, whether among the snows at Vrlley lorge or amid the honors cf the presi dential chair. Pliny's pen was driven through all its poetic and historical do minions by his wife Calpurnia, who sang his stanzas to the sound of the flute, and sat among audiences enraptured at her husband's genius, herself the most en raptured. Pericles said he got all his li'oaence and statesmanship from his v.ife. When the wife of Grotias rescued him from long imprisonment r.t Lovestein by means of a bookcase that went in and out, carrying his books to and fro, he one day transported, hid den amid the folios, and the women of betieged Weinsberg, getting permission from the victorious army to take with them eo much of their valuables as they ceuld carry, under cover of the promise shouldered and took with them as tho most important valuables their husbands both achievements in a literal way illustrated what thousands of times has been done in a figurative way, that wifely ambition has been the salvation of men. De Tocqueville, whose writings will be potential and quoted while the world lasts, ascribes his successes to his wife. rr.d says: '-Of all tlie blessings which God has given to me the greatest of all in ray eyes is to have lighted on Maria Motley." Martin Luther says of his wife: I would not exchange my poverty with her for all the riches of Croesus without her." Isabella of Spain, by her sujierior faith in Columbus, put into the hand of Ferdinand, her husband, America. John Adams, president of the United States, raid of his wife: "She never by word or look discouraged me from running all hazards for the salvation of my country's Iilerties. Thomas Carlyle tipent the lait iwenty years of his life in trying by his pen to atone for the fact that during liis wife's life he never appreciated her in fluence on his career and destiny. Alas! that, having taken her from a beautiful home and a brilliant career, he should have buried her in the home of a recluse and scolded her in such language as only a dyspeptic genius could manage, until one day while in her invalidism, riding in Hyde park, her pet dog got run over, and under the excitement the coachman found her dead. Then the literary giant woke from Ins conjugal injustice and : wrote the amentations of Craigen-Put-tock and CJievne row. The elegant and ful some epitaphs that husbands put upon ! their wives tombstones are often an at tempt to make up for tlie lack of appre ciate words that should have been ut tered in the ears of the living. . A whole Greenwood of monumental inscriptions will not do a wife so much good after bhe hus quiet the world, as one plain son tenco like that which Tom Hood wrote to his living wife, when he said: 'd never was anything till I knew you." Oh, woman, what is your wifely am bition, noble' or ignoble? I it high social jiosition? That will then probably direct your husband, and he will climb and wramblo and blip und fall and rise and tumble, and on what level or in what depth or on what height he will after a while bo found I cannot even guess. The contest for social position is the most un satisfactory contest in all the world, lie cause it is so uncertain about your getting it, and so insecure a possession after you have obtained it, and so unsatisfactory even if you keep it. The whisk of a lady's fan may blow it out. The growl of one lM-ar or the lu llowiug of one bull 011 Wjdl .street may M-atler it. Is the wife's ambit ion the jiolitieal pre ferment of her husband? Then that will probably direct, him. What a Godfor saken realm is American politics tho-e !est know who have dabbled in them. After they have assessed a man who is a candidate for oi'ice. which he do'-s in t get, or assessi'd him for some oliice at tained, and hf has been whirled round and round and round and round among the drinking, smoking, swearing crowd who often pet cont rol of public affairs, all that is Jol t, of his self respect or moral stamina would find plenty of room on a geometrical point, which is said to have in-ilher length, hrcauth or thickness. Many a w ife has not I ecu sat i died till her husband went- into politics, but would afterward have given all s1k pos sessed to get him out. 1 knew a highly moral man, u: eful in the church and pes-cssor of a bright home, lie had a useful and prosperous business, but his wife did not think it genteel enough. There were oi lor.; ah-n.t the business and sometimes they would adhere to his garment.-; when he returned at night. She insisted 011 Ids doing sunr thing more elegant, although lie was qualilied for 110 bu.-ines.s except that in which he was engaged. To please h- r he changed his business, and in order to get on faster abandoned church attend anee. sji3ing after he had made a. certain number of hundreds of thousands of dollars he would return to the church and its services. Where is that family today? Obliterafed. Although succeeding in business for v h!h he was qnatiiieii, no unuertooK a styiv o. lucr cliandie tor which he had no qualifica tion and soon went, into bankruptcy, llis new style of business nut him into evil association, lie lo:;t his morals as well as his money, lie broke up not only his own home, hut broke up another man's home; and, from lieing a kind, pure, generous, moral man as any of you who sit here today, has In-come a home less, penniless liliertine. His wife's am bition for a moro genteel business de stroyed him and disgraced her, and blighted their only child. Put supjiose now there be in our homes, as thank God there are in hundreds i f homes here represented, on the wifely throne one who says not only by l. v words, but more powerfully by her actions: "Mr husband, our de-;linics ere united; let I'.s see where industry, hon esty, common sense and faith in God will put us. I am with you iu all 3 car enterprises. 1 cannot lie with you 2:1 person as you go to v our daih- businc. but I will be with you iu my prayers. Let us see vhat we can achieve by hav ing God in our hearts, and God in our lives, and God in our homes. Be on the i-ido of everything good. Go ahead and do your best, and though everything should turn out different from what we have calculated, 3-011 may always ecu: it on two who are going to help you, and God is one and I am tho other." That man may have feeble health, and may meet with many obstacles and business trials, but he is coming gloriously through, for ho is re-enforced, and inspired, and spurred o; t 0;.- a woman s voice, as muc.'i as was Pnrak by Deborah, when Sisera with niu ' hundred iron chariots came on to crush ! him and his armj-, and Deborah shor.ti 1 ; iu the ear cf Barak: ''Up! for this is the ; da- in which the Lord hath delivered, Sisera into thine hands." And tho enemy i fell back, and Sisera's chariot, not g: :;- ; ting along fast enough in the retreat, the'; general jumped out and took it afoot, ' v.v. 1 ran till became to a ple.ee where a 1 woman first gave him a drink of milk and then sent a spike through his skull, j nailing him to the floor. ! Some of us could tell of what influence iwinra has been a wifely ambition cor. secrated to righteousness. As my wife is out of town and will not shake her bead lxcause I sa3 it in public, I will Etate that in my own professional life I have often been called of God, as I thought, to run into the verv teeth of public opinion, and all outsiders with whom I advised told me I had heti'cr not, it would ruin me and ruin nr.-church, and at the same time I was receiving nice little letters threatening me with dirk and pistol and poison if I persisted in attacking certain evils of the day, until the commissioner of police con sidered it his dut3' to take his place in cur Sabbath services, with forty ohiccrs scattered through the house for the preservation of order; but in my home there has alwa3-s lieen one voice to say: "Go ahead an .1 diverge not an inch from the straight line. Who cares if 011I3- God is on our si It ?" An I though sometimes it seemed as if I was going out against t)00 iron chariot.-;. 1 went ahead, cheered by the domestic voice: "Up ! for this is the day in which the Lord hath delivered Sisera into thine hands." A man is no better than his wife will let lnm be. Oh, wives of America, swing your scepters of wifely influence for God and good homes! Do not urge your hus bands to annex Naboth's vineyard to j oin- palace of success, whether right or wrong, lest the dogs that come out to de stroy Naboth come cut also to devour you. Righteousness will pay licst in life, will pay best in death, wiil pay btst in the judgment, will pay best through ail eteruuy. In our effort to have the mother of every household appreciate her influence over her children, we are apt to forget the wife's influence over the husband. In many households the influence upon tlie husband is the only home influence. In a great multitude of tho best and most important arid most talented families of II10 earth, there have been no descend- Itnts. There i t not a child or a prr rd ehild cr any n-niote dr-ce nil.:;.! of .'a-ti-ingtoii or Charles Sumner or Sh.-.hes-pcare or lMmual la:;l;e or l'i;; it Lord N't l-orj oi-( '. ,.vj 1 1 .r I'oj .r.".ddi son or Job 1 lso! 1 or Lord 1 ha' h:on r rat tan or Isaac Nov. ton or ( ioM.- uiith or Swift or Iiickc or Gibbon or Wa!H.le or Canning or Drydenor More or Chaucer or liord By rou or Walter Scott or Oliver Cromwell or Garriek or Hogarth or Joshua Kevin Ids or Sencor or Lord Ba con or Macaula-. Multitudes of the finest families of the earth are extinct. As though they had dol e r not: gh for the world ly their g.niu i or wit or patriot ism or iiiM iitioii or ooiisocrai ion. ( iod withdrew I hem. In u.ultit udc of cases all woman's opport unity for iisei'uiae.-;; is with her contcniporarie-;. I low im portant that il bean improved opportu nity !
