state legislature. Senator Cornell lias
urierjiluced several meritorious bills. Tlie

bill jrovides for the investing of -tlie pub
lic ttcdool money that is not otherwise

His bill amending the herd law has pass

to the passage of this bill comes' from
tle very worst element in Sioux county,
but the people of Sioux county who sup
ported Mr. Gilchrist at tlie polls last fall
are now supporting his action in the leg

shake a stick at. A large majority of
those who voted for Mr. Gilchrist can
hardly think of any one other act of
their lives with so much gratification.

every poor farmer.
Alliance Times: A protest, purport
ing to have originated at a mass meet
ing at Harrison, Sioux county, and
against the position taken by L. W. Gil
christ on house roll 05 (to change tlie
herd law so that it will protect the far
mers on the frontier against herders and
stockmen) has appeared in late issues of
the Bee and Herald. The article is the
work of the same old rotten gang of
cowboys and black-mailers that have
manipulated the affairs of Sioux county
in the interest of the stockmen since its
begitiing, and is false from first to last.
The stockmen and cowboys have always
controlled'the elections in that county
through intimidation and fraud and
counted in their men whether they were
elected or not. These are notorious
facts and known to everyone in this part
of tlie state. Mr. Gilchrist has said
nothing but the truth and knows it. He
is after their scalps and no gang of pro
fessional liars and black-mailers will be
able to frighten tlie old man a particle.
He knew what to expect liefore he com
menced and is only surprised that they
don't strike harder.
War Bonnet, Feb. 16.
Well! now I am completely discom
fuddled. My wife lias always told me I
had the most amiable disxsition of any
one in the family, and now Junior,
in last week's Journal, has knocked it all
"galley west and crooked." True, I did
sour on Junior about the same time that
he soured on me because I located in the
sliape I did without consulting his Royal
Lyceum laid off the last evening on
account of the storm.
The saw mill on Prairie Dog will make
a short set on Little Monroe before it

Four more claims were taken in the

The Prohlbltlgn Amendment.
The Question of submitting a prohibi
tion amendment to the State Constition
is before the Illinois legislature, and it
will probably be submitted, as members
of both parties are in favor of allowing
the people to pom upon the question.
There is no reason why it should not be
submitted, ami there tire many good
reasons why it should be. Evening

HOW THEY KliiS.
The Hat creek girl liows Iter stately head
And fixes her stylish lijis
In a firm, liard way, then 'Jets them go
In spasmodic little sips.
Tlie Jim ureek girl sticks, -up 'her lips
' And opens 'her pie gatit wide
The smack resounds like a . thotgun crack,
And the neighbors all run and hide.
The J'airining Water girl removeth her
And freezeth her face whb a smile,
And sticks out her lips like an open book
' And cheweth her gum meanwhile.
The Indian creek girl says never a word,
(And you'd think sle was rather tame
With her pratical views of the matter in
Hut she gets there jnt the same.
The Harrison girl, the pride of the world
In her clinging and soulful way,
Absorbs it all, with a yearnful yearn
As big as a bale of hay.
The Crawford girl gets a grip on herself,
As she carefully takes off her hat;
Then she grabs up the prize in a frenzied
Like a terrwr stalking a, rat.
The Cliadron girl, so gentle and sweet,
Lets her lips meet the coming kiss
With a rapturous warmth, and tlie
Floats away on a sea of bliss.
We have sung the song of the jfirls who
And it sets one's brain in a whirl;
But to react, the heighth of earthly bliss
You should kiss a War Bonnet girl.
With your arm 'iiound her waist, her
In a sweetly, confiding way,
You care not a cent for the whole wide
As the winds through your whiskers
And closer together your lips do draw,
Till they meet in rapturous glow,
Anil tlie small, bad boy from behind the
Cries "Gallagher let her go."
Considerable sickness in this part of

If we look back a quarter of a century,
there is no change so marked iu social
and business life as t li.it in the position
of women in regard to education, em
ployment and freedom of action. A Bd
this position or self-dependence and self-
defence is taken without any question.
A few years ago in New York it was not
just the thing for an unmarried girl to
be seen, abroad alone even in her moth
er's carriage. She may now be seen in a
hansom. It is not long ago that it was
thought unsafe for women to travel
without a male protector. A brace of
spirited girls may now go clear around
the world together in entire safety, and
without exciting any sentiment more
dangerous titan admiration. So far as
the world ls eoncerned, they are entire
ly safe, if they desire to lie. Perhaps
we might have more cause for . anxiety
for the well-being of a young man or a
couple of young men on the same jour
ney. The world in all civilized lands
will treat women as she wishes to be
treated. It seems to be well settled
that women can protect themselves, now
that Ihey are iermitted to do so, and
that they can come as near 'Supporting
themselves as a good many men. In
deed, among the colored women of the
South, it is quite a prevalent question
whether they can afford to take hus
bands. It is a subject of constant speculation,
what efl'ect this change in position will
have upon the character of the sex. The
sex lias always despised a man who is
not independent and self sustaining. Tlie
men have liked women who were not
too independent. Will women be less
attractive to men as they become less
helpless, and will their independence
work a subtle change in their nature,
which will lie increasing as time goes on,
according to the laws of heredity? Will

ive part in business, perhaps in polities
(for a good many women are saying that
they will lie willing to vote, and run, or
saunter, for office, if Providence puis
the ballot in their hands), but certain
other admirable qiialitiesin place of the
acknowledged feminine graces and
charms. This is the open question, and
one much more important than the tar
iff or the surplus even the reported sur
plus of women in certain states. For it
cannot be but that the education of wo
men and their increasing freedom of act
ion will as virtually effect this nation as
it has already effected the visible iaspect
of modern life. Harper's Magazine.
