Ho offered to kill Sharp and begged tho

Beauchamp was no coward. He had

NO SEX IN CRIME.
A great bbstaolo that stands in the
way of the onlightcnment, social reconstruction,
intellectual and spiritual
glory of India is tho Caste-system, so
prevalent and poworful because fostered
and nursed from time immemorial.
And tbo great obstacle in the way of
Social Purity and a White Life for two,
is the cruel division that stands liko a
wall of fire between tho male and female
followers of unchaste Venus. One
on coming back to manhood finds the
way comparatively easy. A few violets
and roses aro thrown down to soften his
path and the lovely smiles of women
beam upon him. But tho other on
glimpsing the sweet visions of purity
and innocence so long hidden in clouds
of inkfflnds tho way exceedingly
process that is going on in this great
century. In our exalted moods when
caught up in the whirlwind of splendid
passion and enthusiasm we speak of
privileged classes as passing away, and
all tbe liugen'ng vestiges of caste, feudal
arrogance and autocratic Ceoserism.
But.thereare barriers standing between
classes to-day as formidable as ever,
and'theso barriors arecontrary to every
principle of justice. Since we have
seen women as Botanists plucking mysteries
from the Rose of Sharon and the
Lily of tbo Valley; as Astronomers
reading the starry pages of immensity;
as Geologists, reading the rocks and
fossils, tho fsuna and flora of our earth;
women as painters and literary artists;
we have admired their- capacity and
reached the conclusion there is no sex
SVomen in our seminaries and uni
versities are the peers of men. and they
are making their pathway radiant with
the, glory of tbeir achievements. To
thote who claim tbero is sex in intellect
I would point them to Olympia Mora-
tar, who lectured before a university
when only eighteen years of age;
Madame Xe Stacl, whoso, writings are
Doric in strenth and Corinthian in
beauty; Madame Guyon, who changed
her dungeon into a cathedral, up -and
down wbose aisles the saintliest spirits
of the past walked with unsandalled
feet, and through whose windows
streamed the splendor of God. I would
point tbem to Mrs. Browning, who
gave ber voice to the gro'ves, her
sic to the Btreams, incense and beauty
to the flowers and living eulogies to the
fields; Mrs. Jameson, who wrote of
spiritual beauty with the same grace
and facility that Angelico painted angels
and Mozart composed his masses.
The time woald fail me to tell of Har
riet Martineou, -George Jiliot aud
many others to numerous too mention.
Neither is there sex in heroism.
Grace Darling and ber life-boat, Flor.
ence Nightingale and her work in tho
Crimean war, Joan of Aro,
The whitest Illy on the ahleld of I'rauce
With heart of Virgin gold,"
And hundreds of others declare thcro
is no sex in heroism.
And if there is no sex in intellect and
no sex in heroism, who will be auda
cious enough to declare there ia sex in
crime? We are reducing to the minimum
distinctions of oreed and rank.
And why there should be an obstacle
Himalayan in magnitude and height in
the way of women coming back to
and honor, clear-eyed
Justice cannot understand. And
as long as this continues our civilization
will be like Milton's strange and
startling figure sitting by the gates of
"A woman to the waist and fair.
But ended foul in many a acaly fold,"
The new age of Justico will not toler
ate a double standard of morality. The
dogma of box in crime has oomo dqwn
to us from an nnlllnmined period,
when women were looked upon as 'the
decorated toys of men to be flnng aside
at any moment. ,
But a new age has come, and it has
brought a sweeter friendship, a larger
brotherhood, a higher mnsic, a -purer
literature, a deeper compassion, a
wider love, and a finer sense of justice,
therefore this double standard of mor
ality should be givon to the moles sod
If we as a nation are leadiug in the
grand work of universal .liberty, frater
nity and equality, and making real tbo
Ideal creations of the poets we njust de-J

dark and dripping underworld whero
thousand melt iu Passion's cup the pearl

In almost every soul however' soaked in

invaded by the man of sin, and out of
which may come tbo flower and frnit
of perfect love. J. B. Wiutfobd.

The New Voting Machine.
The new constitution of New York
permits the nse of voting maohines,
soveral of which have been successfully
tested ln the western part of tbo Stato,
These maohines are built on the cash
register principle. The names of the
candidates are printed on tho push,
buttons, and the buttons are arranged
in rows of different colors, representing
the various parties. Tbo voter pushes
the button bearing the name of the
candidate for whom be desires to vote,
and his vote is recorded. An ignorant
voter can vote straight by simply push
ing the bnttonaoftbe color represent
ing his political party. It is estimated
that although New York City would re,
quire 1,000 of these machines at $350
each, the city would savo $100,000 annually
on tbo cost of elections by using
them. Tboy would do away with poll
clerks and with tickets, besides preventing
fraud, and would gnaranteo
accuracy in tho count. The voting
machino is tbo ideal ballot box. It
cannot bo stuffed, and iia computations
are unfailing. If it should oomo into
general use the returns of eleotions
would bo received early in the evening
instead of late ut night.

On ono occasion, a violent storm

a A rough but hearty welcome was accorded
him by tbo inhabitants, to
whom ho was unknown. The man of

A Sioux Indian's Nerve.
Wo were encamped between the two
forks of tbo Big Horn river, with tbo
mountain at our backs, and wo had
Yellow Bear, tbo chief, with us, to be
exchanged for three women held captives,
writes a trooper. The Indians
had promised and promised, but delayed
making the exchange. The Indian
is a diplomat only so far as lying
ts concerned. He will lie when it
would benefit him to tell tbo truth.. He
will delay to his annoyance. They bad
tho women we had thoir sub-chief. It
was to be even exchange, Tho matter
could have been closed up in half an
hour,, f of we were euro tho yomon wcro
only a few miles away, but they procras
tinated from Monday till Thursday,
and then made still further excuses.
On Thursday a son of Yellow Bear
camo in as a messenger. He was a boy
of 15, straight as an arrow, litho as a
wild cat, and young as ho was, be bad
already learned to mask his feelings.
Tbo meeting between father and son
betrayed no traco of sentiment. Tho
roal object of tbo Indians delaying matters
was to give tbo chief a chance to
escapo, but he was too closely guarded
for that. The information was
to the son by a sign. Ho was then
told that it was the wish of the father
that matters be expedited, bnt the
words connted for nothing. The sign
which accompanied them probably
meant further delay.
The boy had oome boldly into camp
on a beautiful and speedy pony, Ho
had a bow and a quiver of arrows and
a revolver. He had not looked at one
of ns when ready to go. As a further
precaution against escape, we had tied
the chief's ankles together. Tho sight
of the bonds fired the lad's indignation,
though wo noted it only in the gleam
of his eye. Being hot tempered as well
as fearless, he planned to rovenge his
father's degradation. I am euro the ,
chief did not counsel it, aa the lad was
one to be proud of, and this action I
could have but one result. When bo
left tho tent be walked straight to his
pony, mounted and rode off to the east,
but after going a quarter of a milo be
baited and wheeled to faoe us. As wo
looked at him ho uttered a war whoop,
drew his revolver and charged straight
Into camp. Tbero were nearly 000 of
ns, with twenty troopers just mounting
their horses, and oar surprise was
so great that the boy had passed
through the camp before we realized
the situation. In bis passage he killed '
two men, wounded a third, and disabled
two horses, losing only one of bis six
shots. As he reached tbo southern end
of tho camp be flung away his revolver
and strung his bow.
We were in no mood to stand any
nonsenso from a redskin, young or old,
and the roon began shooting at the
boy without orders, no sat for a fall
minute while preparing bis bow and
selecting bis arrow, but of tho hundred
carbine ballets not one touched bim or
bis horse. Wbon roady, ho sont forth a
a ringing war whoop and oame charging
back. He. sat upright, guided the
pony with his knees, and fired bis arrows
almost aa fast as one could pull the
trigger of a revolver. Ho did not keep
a straight conneo, but swerved to right
and left,, and this dodging saved him
for a time. At one timo there must
have been'250 men firing at bim with
carbines and revolvers, bat no ono
waited to take aim. Ho had almost
reached tho northern edge of tho camp
when horse and rider tumbled together.
The official oount showed that tho
boy was strnok by twenty-three bullets,
seemingly all at onoe, and tho !ony by
eight. Ihey were' simply riddled. t

anything. Ho did not shout ho
did not lift a band he did not breathe
as if his pulses quickened by one single
beat. He just looked, gradually turning
head and body to keep the boy in
view. A command from him would
doubtless have checked the lad, but he
did not shout it. If be was surprised
prond angered or hopeful, tliero was
not the slightest indication of it 'in bis
face. He did not even clinch his hands
or bito bis lips. I noted his respiration,
and it was neither faster nor slower.
When tbo boy went down tho father

sat in tbo same place. Ho did not ask
