We grow so justly indignant over the
self-righteous pomposity of any minister
who is satisfied with woman's subordi

reant to our conscience should we fail
sometimes to speak of it.
Nor is it any argumeut in favor of
this unjust state of affairs that there are
women who are enthused till half crazy
over religious excitement, and who are
so full to the brim with impracticable
efforts iu religion tbat they fail to com
prehend their own subjugation. We
had hoped the Crusade would have

there is no practical result from their

The lecture on Max Muller we did not

that we are not all pagaus, comes to us
like rain to deserts. Not that we decry
churches or would do away with them.

hundred this is the case, and just as
long as the seducer of young girls aud
the defamer of women is tolerated in
society, invited to pass a social evening
iu our most respectable homes, permit
ted to escort our daughters and sisters
to places of entertainment, and treated
in a way that only "virtuous" men
should be, the ranks of fallen women;
wlll grow larger and larger until there
will be no remedy.
Let us suppose a case. A young girl
of respectable parentage, well educated,
beautiful, refined, the idol of her home,
beloved by a large circle of acquaint
ances, an ornament to society, a perfect
woman everywhere. Her beauty, grace,
and innocence attracts the attention of
a young gentleman, one she has known
from childhood, perhaps a schoolmate,
and well received in the best society,
and considered by all her friend's to be
a "model young man." At first she re
ceives him kindly, without a thought
of love; soou she listens eagerly for
his footsteps; the sound of his voice
thrills and sets her pulses throbbing
with unwonted quickness; she listens
tremblingly and happily to his words
of love, his vows of eternal truth and
fidelity, his promises of speedy mar
riage. Slowly, but surely, he winds his
toils around her, "lures and leads" her
on, until trusting his love and believing
his promises, she falls. The weeks and
months pass on. With tears of agony,
she begs of him to fulfil his promises,
to make her his wife before the world
brands her with shame; but instead of
fulfiling his promises and shielding her
from shame and disgrace, he leaves her,
coolly informing her tbat "when he
marries he wants a virtuous womau for
his wife." (A fitting mate for a virtu
ous woman.) Soon the world knows
all; turned out of doors by her father
and mother, cursed by her brothers aud
sisters, shunned by all her acquaint
ances, unable to provide for herself and
child, what can she do ? If she applies
to an old acquaintance for employment,
the dainty lady only draws ber robes
closer about her, puts on the air of "I
am holier than thou," tells her there is
so much sin, misery, and trouble in the
world tbat she don't know what It is
coming to; that she might have known
better; she ought to suffer, she can't
give her employment, and hopes she
