Woman's Fortitude In Bearing Tain.
Here a. some interesting data con
cerning tl comparative fortitude in
bearing pain between women and men
which decidedly oppose Trof. Lom
broso's theory that women suffer less
pain than men because of their less
sensitive organization. Dr. Charles L.
Dana asserts that women suffer much
more then men. 4,For forty years of
life, person for person, the woman suf
fers three times as much as the man.
Measure it by pints, quarts, or yards
the proportion will be the same three
to one." Dr. Seneca M. Powell claims
that the difference in the matter of
bearing pain between the sexes is not
the result, of physiological differences,
but of difference in training. "Pain is
woman's heritage. She must suffer all
her life. She learns that as soon as
she learns what it is to be a woman.
The tradition passes from mother to
daughter that they must bear it and
not make a fuss about it. They learn
to consider pain as a thing that isn't of
much consequence anyway and isn't
worth speaking about." Dr. Grace
Peekham says that the reason why
women bear pain better than men is
because their nerve fiber gets used to
being beaten by throbs of pain, so that
they cease to notice it, as one grows
accustomed to an annoying noise which,
if constantly repeated, finally ceases to
produce an impression upon the audi
Parallel, Not Identical.
It is the narrow superficial education
nf women which leads them to main
tain that there is "no difference" be
tween themselves and men, or that
men's normal opportunities are loftier
than their own. and which consequen
tly makes them envy men and desire
to step into their places. The really
educated woman, the one whose mind
reallv knows and thinks, can compre
liPTid better than anv one else the true
meaning and glory of womanhood, the
true importance of its peculiar re-
snonsibihties. the true value and
charm of its peculiar privilieges.
for she alone is able to attest

The Beauty of Girlhood.
IIow often does the woman who has
eft her teens behind her long for those
days when there was a crispness and a
novelty in the every day affairs of life
that seora now so prosaic, so dull and
so utterly unlike the self-same items of
that past that never can come again.
Men may rave over the maturer
charms of a woman of 30, but the
woman herself would gladly do away
with the praise, which to her ears al
ways sounds a bit apologetic, and go

Women and Billiard.
One of the many things the smart
woman knows how to do, and to do
woll. is to handle the billiard cue. No
other game rresents so favorable op
portunity for the display of a graceful
figure and a pretty hand, and as sac
cess in playing depends upon delicacy
of touch, rapidity of judgment and
quickness of perception, a girl
with a little practice . plays
an excellent game. Corsets ana

THE NEW OSBORNE
Lightest Strongest and Simplest Machine Made.
BECAUSE its frame is all made of angle steclland put together with steel
bolts. No round or square iron pipe about it.
BECAUSE it has the steepest deck, thus insuring a quick delivery to the
packers, and avoiding all trouble from packing and choking.
15KUAUSK it has the widest drive wheel, being over 1U inches on the lace,
thus avoiding all danger of sliding in dry or sinking iu wet weather.
BK JAUSK you don t have to elevate the gram so high.
BECAUSE all its parts are steel aud malleable iron, thus insuring four times
the strength at half the weight of cast iron.
BECAUSE its chain drive, front cut and straight pitman apply their power
direct. No lost motion
BECAUSE, it is the easiest adjusted, easiest handled, and best built machlue
on earth. Don't buy a machine until you have se?n the New Oiborne. Two
horses can handle it. Its use on a farm is proof of an intelligent farmer.
The Number Four Mowers; 4, 5 and G fet cut stands at the head of the list.
Ask any one of its hundred thousand users and the same reply will be made. "It
is good enough for m? "
AN ALL STEEL HAKE can only be bought of an Osborne agent. Farmers,
the best is none too good for you.
