A Private Opinion Conceived by a Person
Who Hat No Use (or Gossip. Printed
by Request for Their Benefit.
There is more in the littlo word,
"Gossip" thrtit onu would think nt n
casual glance Webster (felines "(5os
sip." "'tii tell idlo talcs " There ate
few words in the English language tlml
convey innio meaning or give more
(ood (or sciinnns ntul re licet ion than
tlie 0110 melted in tlio.su six leMers.
Snnlewheto in "Faust" tho devil is
heard to reinaik that ho lmd no room
in his domains fur "Gossips " Pet hups
tlm fettilo Inain of the author was re
ferring to the dangoious typo of gos
sipsthat class which comes under the
head of scandal mongers. Thoio is no
community not cursed with this class
of human beings. Jusl why the Divine
Maker places them on earth is one of
the unexplained laws of nature, yet we
find them among nil classes the high
and low, meek and vicious. Their
thrust is worse than a daggoi'j, their
9ting worse than .1 serpent's. A rattle
snake will sting only when attackod, a
robber will do his work and then slink
away in the dark, tlio assassin will slay
his victim and then remain in hiding,
will annoy only when annoyed but
the gossipl when does their woik end?
Not until tho ki'iivo icecives them.
What must be the make-up of a male or
female gossip? What pleasure can bo
gained by these human hyenas who
feast over the remains of their fellow-
men! There Is a certain class of peo
ple who nmku it their business to
meddle with the n flairs of others
Poihaps this would not bo .so bad in
itself weie it not that these ollicious
individuals ply their work with no
good motive. Their object is had and
usually their finish is worse. Thai o is
nothing so despised, low, contemptible,
loathsome, wicked and mean as n gos
sip. 1 no tutor is as a rose geranium to
a cactus besido them, thu assassin a
prince in whito robes in compaiison
with them, tho gambler and prostituto
are entitled to seats nearer tho white
throne than they, the serpent's sting is
not poison onough to innoculate tho
rotten blood that courses through their
festering veins. The wrecked lives, a
result of their forked and tilthy tongues
stand a monument to their iniquity,
and tho scalding tears of sorrow that
tlow from the eyes of their subjects
should form a seething sea of salted
blood into which the slimy human vul
tures should he compelled to bask for
time eternal. No sufficient apology
can bo given for their work onco done.
Their's is a blow worse than death.
Tho victims of their body thrusts are
consigned to liv.s worse than death a
living hell on earth in most instances
while their consignees to perdition go
on in tboir fatal w.rk of soul burning.
Of all classes of people, tho most do
spisable is tho one who will viciously
attack tho character of auothor. In
tho oyos of decont people ii makes no
difference whether tho gossip parades,
on supremo nerve, in the best of society
and wears silk petticoats and socks or
whothor sho has none of these luxuries
and mingles in tho slums In plying
htr vocation she becomes tlio mod
vicious and dangerous of all classes of
people No ono can hope to escape.
Tho gossip may bo likened to a yollo v
newspaper, nothing will satisfy except
sensationalism. Pure acts and deeds
aro by her misconstrued, painted to it
bright color, and under the protection
of "I don't Know but they say," oho
gads nbout tho community seeking
whom sho may destroy, defaming the
character of a neighbor and an inno
cent person. Red Cloud has her full
share of these gossips and these sancti
monious old cats as a rule attend
church at least twico each Sunday ami
yell 'Anion" louder than tho preacher
can pray. At prayer meeting they aro
on the front seat and lead oft in tho
"Praise God" affair. Under tho clonk
of the church and because some distant
relativo onco had money they pose ns
leaders in society. For some time their
maneuvers havo been watched by tho
Chief. It finds that they go in droves,
like so many hogs, and soino of them
look more hog than human. There
isn't a real genuine lady in the bunch.
They aro coarse, vulgar and unrefined,
deuendinc wholly upon a smattering; of
tongue to enable them to safely trot
the hot pace tky hare been going.
