in an interesting article on the
"Women in Stores a&d Shops," in
hi August JUadies Home Journal
Girls hdve fe-v ipportuuit es to

occupations which are considered
geuteel for womeu are overcrowd

positions ot trust. Occupations
like feather making are not over

lack of pmplov meat, but the Wages
when there is work are sufficient
to enable a girl io get along even
if she is idle a part of the time.
Many provide tor ibis by learning
two or three tradB. Ou the
whole, the employment of women
in mercantile pursuits is undesir
able; it is poorly paid; it is not re
gulated by law as it should be,
aud while it is considered more
genteel than at the lighgt trades,
it is less remunerative. The long
hours that are exacted ot sales
women on Saturdays aud at holi

by any extra compensation.

There was a remarkable scene in the
Second Presbyterian Church, Albany,
Sunday, when its pastor renounced the
Presbyterian faith and declared that the
Presbyterian General Assembly was the
most "bigoted, iutolerantand reactionary
body" ever seen in any denomination.
The Second Presbyterian Church is
the oldest and most influential in Alba
ny, and Dr. Ecob has been its pastor for
tho past twelve years. He came from
Augusta, Me., where he was for many
years pastor of the church attended by
James G. Blaine. He has been a stanch
follower of Dr. Briggs throughout tho
latter's trial of heresy, and several times
has criticised the latter's opponents.
