LARGE NUMBER OF WOMEN EARNING

"Wanted in Tlii-. Country What Women
Should Do.
The number of vromen vrlso aro caruinj an
independent living in this country is iucrcas
ing, vcar by year. During tbo la&fc genera
tion tho increaso lias been a most stu prising
cue, nud from present appearances tho num
ber of such women is (o Ix largely increased
iulho urar future. The colleges and bigli
school: of tho country arc sending out an
nually ihouMiii'Is of young women uho arc
not only -.vell-cducatcJ, but self-reliant, and
who, as a class, arc entirely unwilling to re
turn to their homes, even when they Lavo
good ones, and take up a life of terni-idleness
and dependence. Of course, a very largo
number arc forced by circumstances to enter
upon some occupation for self support What
tho final icsult of this pressure of femalo
labor upon the market is to bo it is hard to
foretell. TV re are those who fear that wo
Jiall soon become like somo of tho countries
of Europe, where the women do tho greater
part of tho won: and tho men aro compar
atively idle; or liko Indian tribes, where tho
squavs do all the" menial labor. If tho ten
dency is in that direction it is certainly a de
plorable ono and should in somo way bo ar
rested. MEl'.!: BEASTS OF BtJRDlSX.
Ono does not desiro to seo American women
liko tho women of northern Europe mere
beasts of burden. For instance, in Stock
holm woman is almost exclusively omployed
as hod carrier and bricklayer's assistant. She
carries brick, mixes mortar and does all tho
hardest work about a building. Sho is paid
for a day's work, which is fully twclvo hours,
tho sum of ono kroner (equivalent to ono and
threo pence.) Tho women do all tho street
cleaning, haul tho rubbish in hand carts over
tho cobblestones and out upon tho hills, un
load tho boats at tho quays, do tho gardening
and run ferries. They tako tho places of
horses and dogs in much of tho carrying busi
ness, bringing in tho largo and heavy milk
cans from tho dairies and distributing tho
milk. In many other portions of Europe it
is scarcely Letter. You can sec women in
highly civilized Kcgl.in-l employed day by
day in the coalpit, v' the forgo and in brick
yards. In Franco she fills furnaces and tends givat
coko ovens, and doe-;; tho greater part of the
market gardening, besides tending a large
part of tho chops. In German' sho is often
hitched '.villi a dog to draw a heavy cart, end
this is also dono in olhor European count! ios.
In Germany the does moro agricultural lab.v
than in almost any other land; but this is rot
quito so hard and dobasing a3 work in mines
and coalpits, although sufficiently destructive
of all the finer qualities of womanhood. In
BslRium ycur.g women and even littlo girls
work continuously in coalpits, and there aro
bent and orippled old wemon about theso pit;
who Lava worked in them since early child
hood. In Holland lh.y -orl: on tho canals
with a ror-9 OTcr the shoulder, and do a largo
part of the work upon tho dikrn which hold
the sea at bar. In tUl tho other laborious oc
cupations they alv taij a largo part, and
their coarse and sunburned faces retain hard

IX KUROrHAK COU.1TCIIH,
In soma of thes countriw tho young men
ar all in the army; ia others thay are almost
idle, doing only the lightest part of the woik
and congregating in vat,t numbora in beer
gardens and rr3i or fiahing in tho little
streams her and there. Thay belong to a
band, to a fire company, or a club, and only
pretend t earn enough monoy to pay for
their pastime, while wires, or daughtars, or
mothers do tke reel werk which supports tho
family. Wkere vast atanding armies arc
kept the evil is the greatest, but everywhero
in Europe upoa woman falls a large share of
tho hard labor wkich wo ia America aro uc
uttomed to ee performed by men.
But already tke European custom is gain
ing a foothold in America. The groat influx
ef fereigucru has brought witk it other ideas
than our. Gennlh and Norwegian women
May already be &eea in great numbers in tho
barrt fields of the west and driving loaded
teams upon western roads. W kare not yet,
as far as I know, hitched them up with dogs;
but so rapidly aro wo passing ander the sway
of foreigners that we may yet live to see that
odifying bight. I think the American people
owo it to themselves to resist this tendency to
tho utmost. Every true citizen should frown
upon tho man who puts hi wife or daughters
to such work as this in this country, bf cause
it is both needless and hurtful. There is no
excuse in our favored land for putting a
woman to work in tho fields, or at man's haid
work any w here. X?t tho men still canry tho
hods, and dig tho canals, and sow, and reap
A3 they did in the better days of tho republic.
In their eagerness to have all avenues of re
munerative labor thrown open to them tney
Lavo pel haps lather overdid their work, and
may have moro thrust upon them than tboy
desired. Their i ight lp do certain things they
have certainly established, and I should bo
the last ono to question such right. Now,
they suoifid uL establish their right not t
locci tarn things. "Wives and daughters of
foreign fanner and laborers should have a
declaration of independence of their own, and

other man's work demanded of them. Hattie

"What, may I ask, was tho subject of your
pondcriugs! Had that roll of papers anything
to do with them:"'
"Yes; they aro notes gathered by an old
partner of mine, who devoted himself to n
study of tho Chineso people ami their cus
toms, l'vo got a whole caso full f tkeni
there, and w hen I havo nothing else to do I
aniuso myself by reading some of them. I
liavo gainxl a great deal of informatics from
them, which is frequently of considerable
assistance to mo in my practice.'
"Tell me: what is tho story contained hi
those papers in your lap P said tho reporter,
instinctively producing his noto book and
pencil.
"It's a brief history of tho Chine ordur of
Masons. 'ow, I suppose you think their's is
like all other Masonry, and a branch of tho
great organization established by King Solo
mon. You must disabuse your mind on that
score, if such is your opinion. To be sure, it
is a society for mutual benefit and piotoction,
but its original mid present purpose as well,
is entirely revolutionary. The birth of tho
order occurred soon after tho Mongolians in
vaded China mid established tho present Ming
dynasty, which is noarly 400 years old. The
society was composed of tho old ChiHeso
nobles and their followers, who wero opposed
to tho new einporor. Their numbers wero
naturally smaH at first, but tho years added
to their strength. Each member educated his
children to a belief in tho doctrines of tho or
der, until now their numbers include noarly
one-third of the entire population of tho em-
ggjigy
naturally very great, and its members Hava
much to do with tho formation of Chinese
affairs of state.
ORIGINATORS Or r.E3ELLIO:.'S.
''From its inception, four centuries-ago,
tho society has instigated innumerable rebel
lious, and all tho members naturally imbibed
a strong martial spirit. As a consequence,
the order has developed many famous sol
diers, and among them tho great Gen. Loy
Yee, who, at tho ago of SO years, was tho
commander-in-chiefof all tho forces of tho
empire, llis appointment to this position
was, of course, a measure adopted by the em
peror to conciliate the society to which ho be
longed, ilany of China's foreign ministers
also owe their positions to this policy. Being
statesmen of great ability, they naturally be
come a power to be feared by tho govern
ment, and are accordingly appointed as am
bassadors to some foreign court in order to
get them out of tho way. Chin Lin Fan,
the first minister to tho United states, was ono
of these, and, if tho truth were known, I
would not bo surpiisod if every minister since
was a Chineso Mason, or a member of the
Cheo Kung Tong, as tho socictj is called.
"You will gain somo idea of tho strength of
this organization when I inform you that tho
great Tai Fing rebellion of 'o7 was brought
about by its leaders, and fought by its sol
diers. The famous armies known as tho
Black Flags and Yellow Flags, which per
formed such bloody work In Tonquin during
tho recent war with Franco, were also com
posed entirely of tho members of the Cheo
Kung Tong, and led by its officers. Tho
headquarters of tho order ore in the district
of Quong Ton, or Canton, as it is known to
us. It is from thero tho edicts are sent which
go vitally affect the policy of tho Chinese
government, and which in time may over
tarn the throne and establish a new dynasty.
The queue worn to-day by tho Chines people
is a symbol of their bondage to tho Mongolian
emperor, and is a constant rcm.'ider to them
of their subjoction.
THIBTV-THREE CAST IftOX OATIIS.
'The rites of the society! Yes, I know some
thing of them, though there are so many and
in such infinite variety that my knowledge of
them is necessarily limited. There are thirty
threo oaths to be taken, and regular cast iron
ones, too, before an applicant con becomo a
fully constituted member of the society. Ho
can, however, withdraw before taking tho
last oath, provided he promised oternal se
crecy about what ho hod previously seen and
heard of the ritual. If this agreement should
be violated, or a member of tho order should
hi any way disgrace himself in tho eyes of his
brothers, punishment swift and terriblo is
meted out to him. In China it is death, but
ia this country that isimporsiblc, though they
go through all the formulas of an execution
ilhout tha tiuai culmination. Tho accused
is always allowed n trial, but is seldom ac
quitted. Tho wiso men and patriarchs of tho
order assemblj together upon that occasion
in some one of their Joss houses, and thero
the accused and accusers are brought eforo
them. Tho latter step forward lire,t, and
prostrating themselves upon the floor at tho
feet of tho oldest of tho wiso men, they pre
sent their charges.
Tho accused then prostrates himself and
places tho foot of the wiso men upon lu3 neck
as a ago. of submission. After this ho tells
his version of the story, still flat upon his
stomach on tho fioor. When this u over tho
lad man announces bis decinion in a long
and impressive uptcch, which ia interrupted
at tho end of every sontenca by tha others
prostrating th missives and utteruu words of
assent. The judga next claps hit: hands and
in comes ths executioner with a long sword
and a wooden bowl, the latter being for the
purposa of catching the blood that is not
epiilcd. Going up to the coademned man,
who is still lying face downward upon tho
fioor, the axecutiocer taisee him to his knees
and bares his :? ck fcr the fatal blow. Threo

This concludes the ces-orDoay, hut the victim's

Great placards announcing his dif grace ara
posted on all tho dead walls throughout tha

A JAUNT IN IRELAND,
TTith Kvery Variety f Scenery In the
Course of tho Day's Drive.
If tho day be ilv.a their can be no diQculty
in Ireland of shaking off importunate
thought, fchould you be neither landlord, land
agent nor land grabber. You ordered tho
car over night at 9:30, so by 10 you ought to
find it ready packed and waiting for you.
Naturally, you first cast a glanco at tho
horso an under-sized animal, who looks as if
ho could go, as indeed he can, although ho has
no nock to speak of, and has probably been
down moro than onco. You look at tho lug
gage, which is all right; the portmanteau
trapped behind the shafts in front, the
smaller articles stowed away in the well, and
tho wraps arranged to form a rest for j'our
back.
Then you look curiously at the drh cr, who
is to bo your guide and companion, and
though you may prido yourself on your
powers as a physiognomist, you can surmiso
very little about him. Time and your at
tempts at "onvcrsation will tel? Possibly ho
h stupid, silent or morcce, but the odds are
that he brightens when you speak, and shows
himself a brilliant conversationist. Unless
it bo involuntary and unconsciously, ho is
eeldoni d' oil, but he professes to havo any
ninount of local information at your service.
It will not d ) to trust him too far, for rather
than jv.xrirto bo at fault when hois ques
tioned he will draw freely on a fertile imag
ination. Cut discretion and your txporience
should keep you tolerably straight it you are
not getting up facts with a purpose. Then
'unbeknownst to himself"' his talk will Le c
hvenM by bulb, and with quaint turns of
expression that aro richly racy of the ceil.
And talking of tho soil and thosecnay,
though we hvc left the scenery chiefly to the
guide books, you may havo any variety of
both in tho course of ouo long day's drive;
bleak bog and barren moorland; strips of
deep though rather swampy meadow land,
stretching along some peat colored stream; a
col, or a gap. as they locally call it, which
means a tight fit for the road in eomo depres
sion between tho shoulders of the lofty purplo
hills, and then a rapid descent into somo fer
tile strath, where tho swift, clear salmon
river is hurrying seawards, breaking over tho
rocks and tho banks of gravel, under the foli
age of feathering woods that surround n
home-like mansion in its home fields. An
other and a FtifTer pull up to another of those
"gaps,'' and at you top the crest of tho steep
ascent and look out across a broad table land
of swamp and pool and heather you feel tho
fresh sea breezes fanning your cheek and
know that you can be at no great distanco
f i om tho ocean. The road keeps w ell clear of
the coast, for tlw coast line breaks out and
inwards, in sheltered bays and storm-lashed
headlands. But it is worth while pulling up
at the nearest accessible poiut and making a
pilgrimage oa foot along the rough tracks of
the turf carfc to Save a peep over tho brink
of tho land line. And there in Isortli Done
gal, or any ono of tho v. ilu woterii counties,
you may look down over the dirry edge of
tho beetling cliffs, w here tho great gulls aro
dwarfed to b allow sore, over tlu waves
breaking silently far beneath you; while to
the right mid left stretches capo beyond cape,
as they have been mined and hollowed from
time immemorial by tho billows of tho Atlan
ticAlexander Innis Shand in Blackwood's.
Senator Stanford's Parrot.
Senator Stanford has a parrot, and a re
markable one, too. It cost him several hun
dred dollars, and is a wonderfully educated
bird. It speaks four languages English,
French, Gorman and Italian. The strange
part of it is that the parrot, as soon as ho
irausoujouo spesK, Knows in wnac language
to address tho person. For a long while no
ono knew that tho parrot spoko Italian, until
ono day an Italian artist camo to tho house to
do somo work, and the parrot heard him talk.
At once tho parrot started off to jabber
Italian, and had quite a conversation with
the man. It always talks German to a Ger
man servant and French to the maid. Tho
parrot, when any one comes down in tho morn
ing, says : '-Good morning; I hope you rested
well" He is very particular, and ona day,
when a Ltrangcr went up to him and said:
"Pretty Follyl Polly want a cracker?'' he
quite astonished tho person by saying: ''Oh,
stop that foolishness. Can't you talk sense.
I am tired of that rot." Tho parrot has not
learned to say chestnuts yet, but vory often,
when asked if ho wants a cracker, says:
''That's old; give mo something now." He
longs to sing, and knows 'Peck-a-boo" and
chants it loudly at times to tho amusement of
all in hearing. The parrot has its favorites
among the inmates of the Stanford residence,
and will talk for hours with thorn. Cor.

Tho "Summer Widower's" X.incn.
During tho summer months tho best cus
tomers in my lino of business aro men whoso
families aro absent for tho summer. Tho caro
of their linen has always been intrusted to tho
wife. When tho stock on hand is soiled, then
the summer widower drops in every day or
two in a hurry, purchases a suit of under
clothing, a shirt or collar or a pair of cuffs,
dashes into a bath room and changes. A few
days before his wife comes homo ho devotes a
half day to going around and gathering up
his scattered linen. He generally finds tho
pile amazing in proportions. I recall ono
young man who lived at tho Elks club while
his wife was at tho seashore, who in this way
accumulated in a single summer five dozen
shirts, about thirty suits of underwear, and
collars ani cuffs enough to start a store with.

Consumption of Summer Drinks.
There has been within fivo years a remark
able increase in tho consumption of summer
drinks, and within that time the number of
manufactories of carbonated waters has moro
than doubled. Lemon, soda and sarsaparilla
aro the staples, and suffer but littlo from tho
temporary popularity of some specially fla
vored drink. Thero is no way to get at tho
actual output of soda waters, but tho sale
runs up into the tens of thousands of boxes.
On tho basis, of COO saloons in tho city they
will average two boxes of two dozen bottles
per day, 0 you can figure it up. Thero is
also a growing demand for what aro known
as tabic waters, the local manufacturo being
equal in every respect to tho imported Ger
man waters. Dr. Sander in Globe-Democrat.
Hours of Reading.
If you do not set apart your hours cf read

A Frco C'rculatlngr City WbiAry.
Tho lato Dr. Cogswell, the renowned libra
rian cf the Asior library, expressed the opin
ion many years ago that a free circulating
library was impossible, because in fivo years
any collection of books for that purposo would
be scattered forever, beyond hope of recov
ery. But what is the experience of tho Bos
ton public library? It loses only ono book
out of every 9,000 loaned, or enc-ninctieth of
1 par cent. Tha frco circulating library of
Kew Yerk has had similar experience of tho
trustworthiness of tho public so far as bor
rowed books aro concerned, for its. losses aro
insignificant. We question very much,
whether a library like tho Astor, whose books
are held for refereuco merely, docs net, in
proportion, sclier more from depredations
and mutilations than a great free circulating
library. The scoundrels and vandals who
cteal z-aro books, or who tear cut chapters and
plates from choice books, are not fi om :unong
tiio poor and humble, but are men far abovo
poverty conscienceless fellows, who do not
resist tho temptation to purloin. New York

Chicago Man at the Concert.
'My wife took me to a Thomas concert and
made mo srs in a corner and listen to de
scriptive music for throe bom's. Ti j-ieco do
resistnuca c tho programme was .". move
ment froi the 'Ocean Symphony,' by Rubin
stein, is y v ifc 6oid it represented a storm at
eea, but I fJlod to soo where the representa

and the roU.ng of the drums wero supposed to
be thucdri- so my wife said. I toid her thafc
Ukj noise answered just as well for a passing
freight train or a scene in a boiler factory,
but she said I was a Philistine. The violins
wailed in the most agonizing manner, and
this my wife said represented tho fury of the
blast.
"I defy anybody to detect anything liko tho
fury of the blast in a tremolo on the violins.
It might as well do service for a Licyclo race,
or a fight with hard glove, or a comic opera
chorus in distress as for the fury of tho blast.
The shrieks of tho piccolo and clarionet my
wife Baid portrayed the lightning; but I never
heard lightning make 6uch on unearthly
noise, and it struck me that tho wails of those
wood-wind instruments very much moro re
sembled tho noise of a pig under a gate. My
wife heard, in her mind's ear, Horatio, tho
signals of distress given by tho shipwrecked
mariners, the singing of birds after tho storm
and ether poetic sounds, but it was alia
chaos of empty, meaningless sound to me, and
I was very glad when it was over, tliat I
might retire to the refectory- and quaff a
bumper of so-called beer." Chicago News.
Morals of tho French Theatre.
M. Victoricn Sardou, who is now in his
pleasant country houso at Marly, is hard at
work on a new spectacular piece for tho Porto
St. Martin. He says that it is a comedy of
modern life with with scenes in tho east, and
can bo witnessed by children without danger
to their morals. In M. Sardou's opinion, tho
great draw back of the theatre nowadays is
that it is impossiblo to take school girls there,
and, if report be correct, ho is now trying to
change all that. Chicago Times.
