A REPORTER describes a girl as be
ing " "as lovely as a dream in light blue
are like wagons ; they rattle pro-
digiof y when there is nothing in them.
IP we would have powerful minds ,
we must think ; if we would have faith
ful hearts , we must love ; if we would
have strong muscles , we must labor.
These include nearly all that is valuable
in this life.
DURING the debate on the bogus
butter bill in the Housean , amendment
was offered to the bill taxing the manu
factures of glass eggs one thousand
dollars. Certainly these porcelain eggs
that are palmed off on unsuspecting
liens by wicked men , arc a fraud , but
we don't have to eat those eggs as we
do the bogus butter. If olcomargcrinc
was only used as a nest egg for the
cow , to. , induce her to lay genuine but
ter nobody would kick.
A YOUNG woman from the country
was suing her ex-sweetheart for breach
of promise , and the lawyers were as
usual making all sorts of inquisitive
questions. "You say , " remarked one ,
"that the def endant frequently .sat very
close to ? " "Yes sir " the
you , , was re
ply with a blush. "How close"Close
enough so'es one cheer was all the sit-
tin' room needed. " "And y < u say he
put his armllround you ? " "NoI , didn't. "
"What did you say , then. " "I said he
put both arms rround me. " "Then
what ? " "He hugged me. " "Very hard ? "
"Yes , he did ; sodurn hard that I came
purty near hollering right out. " "Why
didn't you holler ? " "Cause I was afeerd
he'd stop. " The court fell off the bench
and had to be carried out and put under
hydrant for the purpose of resuscita
WHAT women need in this country ,
this day and this age is the development
of work. It would be a blessing to them
and to humanity if every girl of fifteen
had to earn at least in part her own liv
ing , had to perform some regular labor
that would employ her mind and soul as
her fingers. The chief fault of woman
is that she la'cks menial and physical
strength and muscularity. The young
woman who works , who undergoes the
vicissitudes of self-support , is just as
much benefitted by it as a young man.
In answer to the query , "What Shall
We Do w.ith Our Girls ? " there is but
one thing to be said and two things to
be done. Throw away their corsets
and put them to work. Teach them
trades. Qualify them for business.
Fit them for adapting themselves to the
ordinary emergencies of life. Make
them utterly independent of the married
state. Don't be horrified at this idea.
The more a woman does't have to marry ,
the more fellows want her and the bet
ter chance she will have to make a wise
and prudent choice. Did.it . ever occur
to the reader that it is work that redeems
by compulsion the human race from
utter destruction by vice ? It is. And
girls are just as amenable to that law
as boys. They are of more value than
boys and should be taken care of. The
easiest and best way is to put them at
regular and sytematic work. Topics.
THAT was a wise Texas judge the
other day who , when a brow-beaten wit
ness licked the insulting lawyer , fined
the thumper for contempt of court but
declined to issue a warrant for assault
and battery. An impudent lawyer , he
said , is a proper subject for assault and
battery , but not in the presence of the
GENERAL BLACK * s ruling that the
widow of a colored soldier killed in ac
tion in 18G3 , cannot get a pension be
cause she was a slave at the time of the
death of her husband and was not de
pendent on him for support , is attract- '
ing some attention. The fact that Lin
coln's emancipation proclamation had
been issued at the time does not seem
to have convinced Black that because
the dead soldier's wife was detained as a
prisoner by the armed enemies of the
union she has some rights which this
this government is bound to respect.
In this way Black appears to be second
as a national crank to Sparks only.
one year and a half to three
years and a half at hard labor were
the sentences imposed upon the first
three boycotters tried in New York.
The judge indicated that he considered
it a pretty serious crime to destroy a
man's business because he don't run it
as you ordered him to , and the proba
bilities are that after a little , he will
make the penalty five years , which is
the longest term allowed by law. In
this case the convicted prisoners had
forced the boycotted victims to pay 'em
a thousand dollars to take off the boy
cott. It was a bad go. The receipt
for the thousand dollars was the most
serious evidence against the conspira

As Patti was setting sail at Dover to
cross over to France for a wedding tour
she went tripping across the plank that
led to the channel steamer as gay as a
lark , humming the gayest air from
' 'Mignon. ' ' A retinue of servants fol
lowed with the diva's luggage. An in
sidious banana peel lay in wait for the
biggest and strongest. He slipped , tot
tered , fell and went with a shriek into
the water. Patti turned , and seeing
the catastrophe , cried , "Safe eet ! Safe
eet ! Yeefty pounds rp.vard ! " In two
minutes the man was landed high and
dry , none the worse for anything but a
wetting. The rescuers demanded their
fifty pounds. "Vat ! You tinks I pays

It was with difficulty the fair singer
could be held back from plunging into
the sea to recover her treasure. A boat
was quickly lowered , but as it touched
the water the fateful dorsal of an im
