There hsa recently been ifptied a
call lor a Southern Woman's Press
Astoriation, and Grseriaboro, N. C,
flit-d upon lor a convention to i flVct
such en organ zation. Jonranlism
amnre tlio wotnt-n of the South is a
compsnUively new venture. There are
bo! lw who l ave had more than ten
years nciive expedience, and the ma
joritf can data thoir entrance in;o the
(tnl'd t)a t me witain the past live or
six years. Contrary to the expecta
tions of the ultra conservative, moiit
of these have met wiih a lair measure
of turcestt, and as "nothing succeeds
like enctesA," it is reanntiab'e to sup
pose that the fnture holds in store for
all such energe'.io spiriti yet mors of
food than the pa t ha yielded.
Among the cities of the Bjuih none

who has used her lalnnt nobly, whose

who has deserved success and won It

The Crescent City hai held ont a
friendly hand to ita women journal
ists, and nowhere is their work made
more pleasint. The Item employs
Mrs. Kohert Sharkey as assistant
editor, and Mrs. T. O. Smith occupies
tike position on the State. The ex
ample ef the city is well followed in
the State, eb is shown by the cumbers
of bright, energetic little papers man
aged by women. At Gretna, Miea Ava

.' Courier; at Lake Providence, Mrs. M.
L. Garner lias charge of the Carroll
Banner, and at Napoleonville, Mrs.
8nsan Dnparty edits the Pioneer of At

Tne State of Texas, whom so many
still think to be principally inhabited
by cowboys and roughs of all kinds,
is not with mt appreciation of the en
terprise and talent shown by her lady
editor. The Hherman Dnnocrat,
which made its bow to the public in
1877, wai the fi st paper ever edited
and pnblished by a woman in the
Bute. It was something of a new de
parture, and although the procs ox-
tended fiaiernal gneiini;s to the new
comer, it is sfo to say that the same
newcomer "van not txpected to tarry
long. Contrary, however, to thetin ex
pert at long, Mn L. 8. Mcl'ueison
showed that the Democrat had c nne to
, etjy. In a recent letter lo the writer
' she remarked:
"I never ins's'ed on woman's mf
fraga or dls:utsed woman's rights,
but simply aliened the right to ute
the powers of mind and body given

A one bnt God if I miitht found the

newspapers in Hherman since my m
teiprhe was established." In 1HH4
Govtrnor Ireland paid Mrs. Me
rherson the compliment of appoint
ing her honorary Commit sicnor of the
World's Exposition at New Orleans.
In addition to her arduont labors on
the Democrat, which is issued In both
d iilyaud weekly form, Mrs. MoPher
aon has written several books. Her
success as a journalist hai probably
atirr.nla'ed others in the H'aie to fol

The Ultnt of Arkansas women is

With but little experience and still
, less capital the enterprise was under

versary finds the Journal with a good
eubecrip ion lift in some ten or twelve
States, published in its own cIUdo,

more firmly established as its ener

TUB "SOUTUHBM WOMAN,"
Thwe is something espncially at
tractive to the present writer in the
name Miss Ilatchett has given her
paper, but the attraction does not end
there, for the Southern Woman can
justly csrummd consideration for its
intrinsic merit. It was established in
June, 1885, in answer to a felt need of
oar sunny land for a paper devoted
entirely to the intorests of Southern
women. Ita ontributors are all
Houthorn women, ar.d ita editor a
bright, spirited Virginia girl, who
thinks for bereelf, and is not afraid to
express what Bhe thinks. Although
contending f r much of the time with
ill health, Miss Ilatchett has mnda her
pnpar a bucciss tnlts particular sphere,
and a welcome visitor wherever it goes.
Many cherring words says the South
ern Woman to the Southern women,
who 1 ovo It) clean, pare pages. With
a few more such energetic young girls
an Mi83 Hatohett in the j nuuliatic
field the world will soon learn that the
typical Sou'horn a, irl of twenty years
ago a charming but very helples
creature is, indeed, a thing of the
past, and in her place is the wide
awake, practical girl of today.
The most ambitious journalistic
venture among the women of the
South, Misaea Wilson and Leyburn, of
Louisville, instituted in thedr muua
xlne, Eledra. Under dilllcultles which
its brave editor3 alone know, a high
standard was made and has been
faithfully maintained, and if it bad
mot with the support it rightfully de
serves a groat eUp forward in the
h story of Southern journalism would
have bsen made. It may not yet be
too late. There are no djubt other
workers whoso names belong on our
list, but which we have been unable
to procure. That there le ample ma
terhl for a Sonthi rn Woman's Press
Association ia evident. It remains to
be seen whether the interest and sup
port eo noee wary to the success of
euuh an undertaking will be forth
coming. It is sale to say that the next
decade will wltne.-s greater develop
ment In journalism among the women
of the South than double the length
of time heretofore has done. The
spirit of progress ia abroad and the
dear old sunny land will of necessity
have to yield much of iti conservatism
under euch an aggressive influence.

About Ibe Army, Ila Officers
aud Ila ft.mclne7.
I was talking to some army officers
a few days ago, whom I will throw
into the first person in order to bring
out in the most convenient way the
essence of what they had to Bay. The
question arose rs to what ctllcer of
our army was fit to lead it in case we
had another war. The general ex-
Srossion of opinion was that Sheri
in had ' passed h s youthful
efficiency; that his flesh had in
creased, and tbat he would prob
ably not to be In a BuflU'lently healthy
state for any great general end. The
frontier Generals like Crook and
Miles were both considered to have
been trained in euch a particular way
that for large strategy they were not
Important. Two nr three of the Colo
nels wore mentioned as capable of
general warfare, and it was said that
the Engineer Corps contained as
many flue officers as we had ever bad
at any one time.
I inquired about the efficiency of
the system of coast defenses. One of
these officers said: "We bave got
nothing at all cf the least defence
ag dnst quits an inferior power with
two or the good ships like Chill. It is
all absurd lor the American people to
suppose that we bave any torpedo or
other svatein or Yankee trick which
can resist great ve isels of war. They
would be ovor here in from two to
three weeks before we would come to
any resolution of how to defend any
thing." One of these officers torn spoke of
TresU'ent Hayes, saying: "I never
took any part in the political hostility
to Hayes, bat when be made a speech
not long ago objecting to Mr. Tilden's
recommendation to improve our coast
defers s, saying that this country
wanUd wanted wealth, and when it
had money enough it could always
obtain defenses, I thought to myself:
'There is a very small man in meas
ure.' How ridiculous It is to suppose
that money can resist a foreign enemy I
The more money yon nave tne
quicker the foreign country comes for
you to get both your property and
Reference was made to what the
Germans think of our prominent com
manders. An officer told a story
abont somebody conveieing with Von
Moltke some Ameiican who insisted
on categorical answers. He kept Bay
ing to on Moltke ht Sherman was
a great General. Von Moltke would
shrug and give no indorsement. The
American mentioned Sheridan. "Ah,"
said Von Moltke, "there is a General."
The American agidn insisted tbat
Sherman was a gieat man in the field.
"Ah," said Von Moltke, with another
ahrtig, "8lu rid-n is a General."
Said he: "Did he not think Sher
man was a great marcher aud fight
er?" "Well, the German strategist meant
to criticiee, probably, Sherman's cam
paign to the sex. It he hd ever met
en enemy in his ronte, he would have
boca annihilated, lis went cfl to tue
sea on a kind of hnliiant gness that he
could communicate with the fleet
there. Behind him the rebels were
invading toe North, passing almott
through Terinerenn. Sherman did
connect and the affair looks very bril
liant on onr png?, but no urecise,
ma hematicd minded general w-u'd
iodorBfi a movement l.ke tht. Cal
tainiy Von Mo'tke wunld not."
The QueHtion arose about relbion la
the army, aid I was surprised to hear
mac q'nie a series ol oar niont eu.i
nent offi era had become convert'! to
the Catholic Church. One party pres
ent said : "It is a sirgular fact thtt
nearly all theie men who go over to
the Church of Roma are of a very
woildly character; soms cf them are
intemperate; otners ae gamblers and
never have a cent ; others politicians
lot k it; g lor advactagts.
The name of a very prominent gen
eral was given 10 me aa on tne verge
ol th Catholic CLnrch, bnt not going
over bectnse he tboight be mlgv.t yet
tie President of the United States.
Talking over the late war, an officer
remarked: ' It was one cf th most
wasteful wara in ail history. I knew
one agent who was sent to Europe
near tbe commencemsnt of the war
ta buy blankets for the soldiers, and
he bought an enormous number at a
very high price, and they were all of
Bucti shoddy stuff that you could pick
them to pieci ."
"B it,'r said I, "suppose we hud
kept a standing army from the com
mencement of our history and paid it
all the whi'e, would we not havespstt
morn money in the ag?regate?"
"Hardly," t aid another t llicer. "A
good b'zmI regi'ar army is the only
sura defense ot a country, ar.d but for
the nucleus of oar leaular army the
host of volunteers cou'd not have been
got into order at all. The wasteful
ness of our wir was especially in the
matt r of rai ing privates. The gov
ernoiebt gave $400 for a private sol
dier, and the tow is, counties, etc.,
added to this rum until the cost
of a privnte soldier at last
was something like 1 00 or
$3(JO0. Now, for this amount cf
money you could a'moft keep a regi
ment in a oountiy lik) Germany.
Boa ides, the army bFcaoie filed with
mercenary materiul which straggled in
time of ha'tle, end had but a scatit
sense of its responsibility. There was
enough good staff among the soldiery
to amount to something, but iu the
end the result of the war wss won by
disciplining, ju-t as we inirfht h;.ve
done at fi'St. Had we been pos eased
of an army of 50,(100 men there would
bave been no rebellion at all. It WnS
the mere want of material which
brought about the conflict."
Said I: "What is the opinion in
the American army ol the German
' Why, it ia first rate everywhere.
That army is divided into corps an
swering to fixed districts; they bave
everything on the spot down to blanks
for issuing telegraphic crdera. In
forty-eight hoars they tan mobilize
any one nf those corps and throw it
over the French frontier or over any
other frontier in Europe. Tbe highest
degree of competition exists in the
German army; besides, there is
the sentiment of security among
the soldiers. When a man
goes out oi tne service in Ger
many be lias open to him the
whole railroad system of the country
and many other occupations. He is
also sare of a pension if he has served
his time. The American people may
have to come to tbat system of pen
sions yet if they expect to preserve
the military character of their nation.
We enlibt men who constantly desert
because tney bave no point to look to
in the future."
Lively Skirmish Willi m Cattle
Fort Elliott, Tkx., December 4.
Sunday morning Capt. Arringtoa,
Sheriff of Wheeler county, accom
panied byC. B. Wellingham, superin
tendent of th Hartford Land and
Cattle Company, started out to arrest
John Leverton and James Wells for
stealing cattle belonging to the Turkey
Track tanch. Wednesday morning
they arrived at the little cabin occu
pied by Lverton, 100 miles from Mo
beetie. When thiy entered Leverton
grabbed his gun, aimed it at the Cap
tdn. Arlington was too quick for
him, and broke his arm with a shot
from his levolver. In failing, Lever
ton's gun wan discharged, and the ball
struck Mr. Wellingham three inches
Inches above the right knee, inflicting
a painful wound. Leverton then
grabbed his gun with his left hand
and filed three more shots, two of
which Dflsced through the handker
chief which Captain Arlington wore
around his neck. The Ciiptain then
broke LevertonVother arm with a sec
ond shot from his revolver. Leverton
scrambled to bis feet and made his
exit through a tear door and wss 100
yards from tbe cabin when the Cap
tiln saw him, and thinking bim to be
Wells, shot and killed him almost in
stantly. Welle was captured a few
milea from there, near the Canadian
river. Leverton wss an old (Jblcago
crook, and Wells is said to1 have come
from New York. They had long been
wan'ed by t.h (T1cts.
