In these dajs when woman's sphere
is a rapily growing one; when her claim
to the right of voting has iu pait been
conceded: when she is an actit e pai tie
ipant in preparing for tho greatest ex
hibit the woild has ever seen, and has
shown herself capable of success iu
man vocations from which she was
barred for centuries; when sho is prac
ticing law and preaching tho gospel,
healing the sick and nursing the atllct
ed, the boast of A. C. Couitney, a res
ident of Clay county, Mo., comes to us
like the dim inenion of a departed
This gentleman says in nn exultant
and ever exuberant way that his wife
has spun more thread, wo en more
cloth, dropped more corn, piled more
hazel brush and burned it, bound more
sheaves of grain, loaded more wagons
with the same, done more chores, seat
ed more babies on a boaul while out at
woik, and at the same time kept the
household machinery lu active opera
tion than any other woman on earth.
No one is as xet leported as baring
taken up the gage thus thiowu down,
and it is not to be expected that many
will accept the bold challenge; but Mr.
Courtney's statements are of a nature
to inspire widespread curiosity. It
must be conceded that his wife Is a
paragon, lint what was Couitney doing
nil the time? If she cleared away the
obstructing brush, tilled the soil, bar
tested the crops, made the cloth and
shaped it for the family wardrobe, at
the same time looking after her usually
accepted duties, how was the husband
putting in his time? It is not in evi
dence that he did so much as looking
after tho row of babies, for the good
wife had them perched on a board un
der her own w atchf til e e. Was Court
ney simply boss of tho job or was he
down at the corner grocery spitting
tobacco juice, drinking "moonshine,"
spinning ) arus ami occasionally throw
ing out a complimentary, notice of the
wonderful prowess shown by his better
half? It w ould be well to hear w hat
she has to say about Mr. Courtney.
But giivtcr thoughts arc suggested
than those first adduced by hearing
from the Clay county boaster. In
every city and etery community aie to
be found the faithful, patient, loug
stilToring women, who toil without
ceasing to support themselves, their
imfoitunatc offspring and their worth
less husbands. Detroit is a favored
city in this respect, jet a lifting of the
vail would show mail' such a sad pict
ure as wo have painted. Hard won
earnings are often seized upon for
drink, brutality is the return for undy
ing love and au existence of unbroken
suffering; mothers work wearily on till
kindly death relieves them; children
weep, feel that the brand of disgrace
is their heritage, and arc too often
driven to wickedness and crime.
Homes are ruined, bright Jiopes arc
wrecked, the beautiful visions of the
bride are lost in the hideous, heart
breaking, life-crushing realities of af
ter x cars, and the poor victims mourn
unceasingly through the deepening
shadows that tell of approaching eman
cipation. Woman's love passeth all
Men may fail iu honest endeavors.
They may fall far shot t of the ambi

may have their shoitcomiugs and make
tho disastrous mistakes which at times
bring poverty as the result of the
brightest prospects, but if their love
be loyal, if they boldly confront adver
sity and do what within them lies for

The announcement that Mr. Howells
w ill leave Harper's Magazi ne, to take
editorial charge of tho Cosmopolitan,
on March 1st, calls attention to tho
process of building- up tho staff of a
great magazine. Probably iu no
monthly has the evolution been so dis
tinctly under the eyes of tho public as
iu the caso of tho Cosmopolitan. The
first step after its editorial control was
assumed by Mr. John Bris'ben Walker,
was to arid to it Edward Everett Hale,
' tt'lirt ffiiL" rtlinwrn rf n ilnixn titintif nnllnjl
M JV fcV'n, ,uuijjV U4 t tivitituivuivaiitvi
"Social Problems," subjects concern
ing which the greatest number of peo
ple aro thinking to-day. Mr. Hale,
who js a student, a fair minded man,
a thorough American anil a man of
European journals. Sonic mouths la
ter, a department was established call
ed "The Review of Current Events."
To take charge of this, a man was
needed who should bo familiaruot only
with the great events of the past thirty
jc.irs, but who knew personally the
leading men of both the United States
and Europe who could interpret motives
and policies. Murat Halstead accepted
this position with the distinct timier
stauding that his monthly review
should be philosophical and never par
tisan. The next step in the history of
the Cosmopolitan, was the placing of
the review of the intellectual move
ment of tho month in the hands of Mr.
Brander Mathews, who for sometime
has been recognized as one of the two
or thrco ablest critics in the United
Finally came the acceptance of the
editorship conjointly with Mr. Walker,
by Mr. Win. Dean Howells. Mr. How
ells, who is recogni7eil universally as
the foremost American of letters, upon
the expiration of his contract with Har
per Brothers, on the first of March
will take in haud thedestiuicsof a mag
azine w Inch promises to exercise a share
of influence with the reading classes of
the United States. His entire services
will be given to the Cosmopolitan, and
everything he writes will appear inthat
magazine during the continuance of
Arizona And Statehood.
The admission of Arizona into the
charmed circle of statehood seems still
to be a somewhat remote contingency,
notwitlistauding the "single-handed
fight" of its delegate in Congress and
the presentation of several bills looking
to that end. The conditions imposed
upon this favor for such it is regard
ed not only require the mental, moral
and physical ability to maintain (.elf
government, but its future political
status must bo clearly aud unmistaka
bly defined. The certainty of demo
cratic domination is a fatal defect in
the estimation of a republican senato
and president, w bile the elimination of
that ceitaiuty is regarded as a lack of
qualification by a democratic house.
As a bone of partisan contention, there
fore, the remaining territories seem
doomed to suffer ct awhile, and their
unfortunate position is an unjust denial
of the common rights of -ery many
American citizens. It is really a grave
error that congress has, not fixed cer
tain rigid and inflexible conditions as
a standard for the admission of Terri
tories to statehood, the attainment of
which would require but a formal re
cognition by the government to start
its automomical machinery iu motion,
regardless of pal tisau interests. Ari
zona is fully capablo of self govcrment
and its people have expressed them
selves satisfied with tho organic prin
ciples they have formulated; it con
forms to all the requirements of tho
national constitution aud what more
