VBROINBS OP RISTORV.
In searching the pages of history we
often find glowing accounts of some
woman's deed or word. Women have
frequently, in time of danger, proved
themselves equal to any emergency, and
some of tbe mildest aud weakest have
made lor themselves names that are im
mortal. Those who judge ot the French
by the levity ol their manners are apt to
consider tbe women oi France devoid of
noble and heroic qualities. Yet some of
tbe truest women that have ever lined,
those who have sacrificed and veutured
all for tbe sake of tbeir native land, have
been born and bred on French soil.
All are familiar with tbe Inspiring story
of Joan ot Are, the French peasant
girl who left ber home to take up arms
and regain tbo kingdom of France. She
who was distinguished above all tor ber
modesty and simplicity, commanded
armies and led In battle, simply because
she considered it ber duty, as obeying tbe
will ol God. ' By her inspiration she ex
cited soldier? to the hlgheeUmthuslasm.
..She most have possessed a truly strong
and heroic spirit to have withstood tbe
entreaties oi her parents in order that
she might obey the mandates ot a higher
power, who, she thought, required her
to take this perilous position and to
suffer and die. Tbe memory of Joan of
Arc Is carefully treasured in the minds ol
tbe French, snd to tbem, whether con
sidered religiously or patriotically, she
is a saint. .
Charlotte Corday, also a French maid
en, proved hersetf a trno heroine. She
had the most exalted ideas ot patriotism,
was. passionate and enthusiastic. When
a young omcer wnom sue lovea was
killed, she determined to revenge his
death. ' Accordingly she left her homo at
Caen for Paris. Here she staid for two
days, considering which of the two great
revolutionary leaders, Robespierre or
Marat, should be her victim. When tbe
latter declared that 200,000 men, among
whom She remembered friends, must be
sacrificed, her resolvo waa quickly taken.
Saying tbat she wished to disclose some
nlots ot the Girondists, she wu
admitted into the presence ol Ma
rat and thrutt - a '.'dagger through
his heart, fle died Immediately. The
news of the murder soon spread, and the
crowd that gathered round coold icarcely
reallza Uut ' thyouna and. beautiful
srlrl. looking so calmly on tbo confusion
about ber, should have keen the assassin,
She wu arrested ana .atntcaed to oeatu
oa tkt) ttulUftM "On he way totxecu.
ttoa ntr bcaatj m lotty fterliigthtlllsd
tTMittawatioistr. She not only ful
fill efl ber TOW, but delivered the Frri h
from the cruelty ol a tyrant.
Madam Roland, Maria Antotnuiie and
many others who conducted themselves
so heroically during the French revolu
tion might be mentioned ; indeed, the
whole hlbtory of France Is full t the
deeds ot brave and noble women. .
Elizabeth; of Prowtla, who humbled
herself before Napoleon, Is aa example ol
true nioial heroism. To lead In battle
would bare been far eatlcr for her than
to lower ber pride by begging a i'avof
ot one she considered a pleblau,
bat the great love she bore her country
caused ber to stifle such feelings It by
this sacrifice she could savo ber country
Irom disaster. " '
Never did women display a more b
rolo spirit than Florebco Nightingale
when she voluntarily left a luxurious
borne to nurse the sick anl wounded In
tbe Crimean war. ' 1
The caue of religion has also had Its
beorines, the memories ot whose lives
and deaths will ever be cherished by the
church of Christ In every land. There
were brave and patient women who died
to win religious freedom, who suffered
the severest tortures on the rack and
stake to break down Romish barriers. '
Our own country has not lulled In pro
ducing heroin women, though lew figure
prominently In history. Our Puritan
mothers must have surely possessed
truly noble souls. But we ucd not
search the past for heroines since nil
around us are women who are silently
and bravely bearing their burdens and
are as truly heroines as any that ever led
in battle or luld'down their lives.

Tbe temperance reform is a great and
good work. It has already closed the
doors of a number ol saloons In our
midst, with prospecU of a like I n-M-many
others, and all because nun tire

We should laud and mugulfy Doctor
Reynold's name lor being the instrument
whereby we were awakened to the ne
cessity of. suppressing the grnat evil, in
temperance, lor we all know that it U
wine which heightens InditR-rence into
love, love Into jealousy, ami Jealousy Into
madness. It 01 ten turns the good-natured
man into an idiot, and the choleric
mm into an assassin. It gives tiitcrness to
resentment. It makes vanity insupport
able, and displays every little spot of the
soul in Its utmost delormity.
Many were the remarks heard on every
side when the temperance move
ment was first set on foot in our city, to
the eflect that the excitement would
wear off and no interest be taken In It
after the doctor's departure, flat these
were false prophecies, as is proven by
tbe ever-growing interest taken In the
noble work at tbe present day.
One or Dr. Reynolds' greatest achieve
ments while in this city was the organi
zation ot the Cairo Temperance Reform
Club, which, though comprising corns
paratlvely tew members at the start, has
ever since been steadily on tbe increase,
and now numbers upwards of half a
thousand active members. This organi
sation has opened a large reading room
where all the daily, weekly and monthly
papers and magazines can be found, and
altogether It Is doing vast amount ot
good lor the Interests of our city. Their
hall, which Is np stairs over the reading
room. Is densely crowded every Friday
evening to listen to the wise words of
ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.
Work Is the'law ot success in every
thing under the sun.
In God's kingdom every man reaps
exactly what he sows.
The benefit of all education Is not
In itself, but in lu uses.
Education Is a young man's capital.
Every hour spent in studying Is working
for higher wages.
Both God and man always help those
who help themselves, and much more
those who belp others also.
There is a very great difference (as In
character, art and even business, so lu
schotsrvMn) between being traetlu right

It Is not advisable for any of u to over
task our energies, eorporeal or mental,
but In the eager pursuit ot wealth or
fame or knowledge, how many transgress
this salutary rule, lt must be a matter
"ot great importance to all who do so to
know how they cai regain the vigor so
recklessly expeudod. The remedy Is
neither costly or difficult to obtain. Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters is procurable in
every city, town and settlement in
America, and It compensates lor a drain
of bodily or mental energy more' effec
tually than any lnvigorant ever pre
scribed or advertised. Laboring men,
athletet, students, journalists, lawyers,
clergymen, physicians, all bear testimony
to its wondrousiy renovating powers.
It Increases the capabilities lor under-
rnlnir fatigue, and counteracts the '.no
iurlous effects upon the system of ex
posure, sedentary bnblts, unhealthy or
wearying avocations, or an Insalubrious
climate,, and Is a prime alterative, di
