Rushville Standard: The people of this representative and senwiorial dis- tri(Aire not, andliave no reason to be, -.is1nl of our tnembers of the present state legislature. Senator Cornell lias urierjiluced several meritorious bills. Tlie one amending our school law was among the first, it beinjf sejiate Hie No. 4. This bill jrovides for the investing of -tlie pub lic ttcdool money that is not otherwise employed, in school district bonds, wliere such bonds are issued for building purposes. Tbiu will enable all new scliool districts to obtain money to buiid wHJi at a low rate of interest, and at tlw Hume time con(ice tije public fund' mure dosely to its real of education It looks now as though the bill cannot fail to pass and become a jiart of our cbool law. Representative Gilchrist has also in troduced some good bills and he is recog nized as one of the leaders in the House. His bill amending the herd law has pass ed both liouses and will receive the Gov ernor signature. The only objection 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 islature. If lie continues as he is going now he will return without a spot on his record." We are son-y to learn that Mr. Cor nell's bill failed to (kiss. It was a men- tons bill and one that would have been a valuable addition to the school law Iwtd it passed. It received a majority vote but it was necessary to have a three-fifths vxjte to pass. Tlie Standard was slightly mistaken in saying that Mr Gilchrist's bill had passed tlie senate but it is almost certain to do so this week which, if it does, will cause more rejoic. ing in Sioux county than you could 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. "Bully for Gilchrist" is on tlie tongue of every poor farmer. Known Beforehand. 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 Hi guess. Borer. Monroe Creek. 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 gets to War Bonnet. Four more claims were taken in the valley last week, near the foot-hills. We are having our best winter, now catch your jack-rabbits. Junior. 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 Journal, War Bonnet Warbllnsrs. Winter hii come at last. A goodly number of the young folks from the valley attended the dance at Harrison on the 14tk NnS Andrews rides in a fine new bug gy, but what is tlie extra seat for Ned? Geo. Olinger was somewhat under the weather a few days last week but is on his pegs again all right now. Persons getting posts from "War Bon net canyons should look sharp for the bran1 of one ex-county official who claims to liave most of the posts in these runyons marked. We have not been 'in this country long but since being Iiere me have been around a little and taken some observa tions and below we give the result, for the benefit of those who love the art. 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 recs, 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 hand,) 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 way, 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 youthful soul Floats away on a sea of bliss. We have sung the song of the jfirls who kiss, 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 face upturned, In a sweetly, confiding way, You care not a cent for the whole wide world, As the winds through your whiskers play. And closer together your lips do draw, Till they meet in rapturous glow, Anil tlie small, bad boy from behind the corral Cries "Gallagher let her go." Warbler. Little Cottonwood. Considerable sickness in this part of late, mostly from colds. Jim Cramer (Baby Jim) killed a moun tain lion in the hills above his place last week. Carey's saw mill is running at full blast this week. Foster Spears is working for a party of railroad surveyors on Hat creek. Mr. Geo. Arrasmith has finished his term of school in district No. 16, and has again taken up his abode with Chas. Grove. Owen Shay lias been seriously ill for several weeks. Too bad for Owen, he is a rustler when he is able to work. School Report for District No. 4. For the term commencing Jan. 14, and ending Feb. 8, 1889. Number of days taught 20.

UROVE, Teacher. Woman's Independence. 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 the luibit of self-reliance, or taking act 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.
