several others, equally ratal, and must die. liut

THE POTENTIAL MOOD FOR WOMEN.

TION, Chicago oct. 0, 1873.
In the front rinks of the army lattic
ing against crin e and corruption, against
ignorance, weakness and despair, we find
the mothers, wi-es and daughters of the
nation. They a'o the private soldiers who
take no part in tommanding, but yet are
the strength and sinews of the land. In
what good work are the skill, the labors of
and tl. 2 prayers 'jf women wanting? How
many weary ani desparing lives have been
brightened and redeemed by her magic
healing, her brave and tender spirit? With
what unwavering faith and self-sacrificing
devotion las she helped to swell the great
wave of Temperance reform that has swept
across our country from Maine to Texas,
from Orcgm to Florida, cleansing the foul
places, clearing besotted brains, brighten
ing dull ees, lighting the sparkling fires
on cold nrd desolate hearthstones, brine
ing food and raiment to tho famishing,
shivering little ones, und hope, strength,
and gratitude too deep for words to the
worn and vretched wives and mothers of
the intemperate. History bears record to
the power of devoted womanhood. What
it may and can accomplish has been demon
strated in die earliest records of the human
race, from :he history of Deborah, the aged
prophetess, who from beneath her palm
tree judged the nation of Israel and in
person led its hosts to victory, a victory
consummated by the valor of tho Ivenite's
wife of the noble Esther and devoted
Ruth, to the saintly Mary "last at the cross
and tirst beside to tomb.'' down throurh
the intervening ages upon which we cannot
dwell, to our own times, which have pro
duced such a brilliant galaxv of noble and
talented wejuen who have given their lives
to humanity and fulfilled an exalted desti
ny, that the names of Harriet Martineau,
Margaret Fuller, Elizabeth Barrett Brown
ing, Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, Maria Mitchell, Cornelia Chisliolm
and a hosts of others in the ranks of science
art, philanthropy and heroism, thrill us
with gratitude and pride that we arc also
women and such a glorious heritage to
boast of, such a divine mission to fulfill
for ourselves and for the world. Wc can,
we may, do grand deeds, for those who
have preceded us have opened the way,
those who are now our leaders, whose sil
vered hair tell of earnest strife and rich
experience, anJ whose lives arc evidence
of rare fruition and blest realization, stand
before us with gleaming banners floating
aljovc their consecrated heads and call up
on us to till up the ranks and prcs on to
victory over sin and shame and misery ami
despair. There arc some things women
must do, and upon her wisdom and courage
and steadfastness of purpose depends the
future of society. The homo is the birth
place of the nation. When it is stainless
the nation will be pure. Every father and
mother in the land will assent to this pro
position. How many will help to make
the nation pure through tho homes?
Tho true home is a heaven upon earth !
It is one to which the husband and father
is intensely and entirely loyal, to which ho
gives ins laithful and untinnn labors, his
fond and unremitting care; delighting in
the society of his wife and children above
all other, where ho can (hid refuse from
the vexations and wearing cares of business
and in.the ntniosphero of pcaco and sweet
content strengthen himself for tho battle
which must daily bo fought for his loved
ones. It is one in which tho wife and mother,
securo in tho loyal lovo of her husband
nnd tho reverent affection of tho children,
reigns a queen; walking hand in hand with
her husband in all things, his trusted friend
and counselor, tho partner not only of his
joys and sorrows, hut of Ids inner life and
aspirations; freely tendered without the
aking her rightful share of income and
feeling tho glad sense of security and
strength that conies alone from mutual
riuifideiico, forbearance, unswerving fidelity
ami deep ubiding faith. It is where the
little children are hoped for nnd reverently
received ns precious gifts from God. nnd
deemed the fairest ornaments of home:
where their young lives are watched and
tended with devoted and unselfish care,
and thu wail of baby voices and the clasp
of childish fingers never become wearisome
and no temptation-of pleasure, fashion and
amiution can lure away tho tender mother
heart from the home nest; where the little
white-roled forms kneel bv the mother's
side and lift innocent voices to the dear
Lord who said, '-Suffer tho little ones to
come." It is one to which, as vears
glide on, the sons and daughters, standing
with reluctant feet upon the threshold of
life, cling with fond and grateful affection
looking with uncertain eves towards tho
uncertain future which shall know no fa-
tncr's faithful care, no mothor's tender
Such homes as I have picture d are many
in our land, thank God! but we need more
of them. Tho safety and honor of the com
munity, tho welfare ot the nation, demand
that tho fountains of society shall be made
pure, and this work must rest in a rrrent
measure in the future, as it lias in the nnst.
in the hands of women. She has the oower
to cleanse the stream which is often im
pure, the opportunity to alter the laws of
society winch are arbitrary and so frequent
ly unjust, and from her influence can spring
some radical changes at once imperative nnd
necessary. The moral power wielded by
women to-day is immense, and those who
take an active part in social life, who are
its leaders, hocc but to bend the weight of
tiieir influence to the side of good to make
it what they will! How often docs it oc
cur that a single family of refinement and
culture, with a bright and well-ordered
home, set in the midst of a rough and
uncultivated community, will iu a
few years transform it entirely,
giving au impulse to the society surrounding
it which is of inestimable value in the
cause of education, morals and religion.
I am reminded here of an incident to the
point, which came under my own observa
tion some years ago. There was a painful
rumor alloat that in a certain country com
munity of the introduction of a piano into
the district, and with serious forebodings
the old farmer predicted that "that new
step-darter of the Cap'n's would ruinate
the young' folks, and make 'em all want to
quit work and be askin' for pianners too."
What was their amazement to learn in
course of time that although Eastern born
and bred, no Western girl in the county
could milk as many cows, turn out more
first-class butter and cheese trom the dairy,
or do a Harder day's work in harvest time,
and then acceptably entertain the ''hands"
(stalwart young farmers from among tho
neighbors usually, who camo in to help in
threshing time), than ''the pianncr-plavin"
gal." To say her offers of marriarro wcro
"too numerous, to mention," is surer.
nous, while in less than five years the piano
was duplicated in several other farm
houses and no complaints were ever heard
ot neglected labor on that account. What
a power for good in any circle of society is
a reiined, cultivated, pure and noble wo
man ! How cordially is she received, how
heartily is she deferred to. Almost uu-
consciously the profane man drops his net
oaths, the coarse and vulgar man endeavors
to appear a gentleman, nnd the frivolous,
impertinent and rude put aside their vari
ous weaknesses when in her gentle, gra
cious presence. The worst, most wicked
and depraved men respect and honor a
pure woman. With such an influence over
evil, why is it there is so much unrcbuked.
why is it that good women quietly close
their eyes and ears to the strong undertow
which is dragging in and destroying the
lives of so many of our youth ? 0 mothers ',
sisters! wives! here is one of your opportu
nities, nerc is um potentiality ot a tuire,
wise and courageous womanhood ! Open
your eyes and see the condition of things
around us. Society has two codes of mor
als unwritten, but none the less strong and
binding one for man, another for woman.
As little children born of the same mother,
nurtured under the same roof-tree. rmj"lit
the same lessons of honesty, truthfulness
and affection in their early years, why is it
that their paths are allowed to diverge ns
they grow older, and while modesty, deli
cacy and propriety even to prudery, are
demanded of the girl, coarseness indelicacy
nnd almost indecency, are winked at aud
openly excused in the boy? These tilings
ought not so to be they are sapping the
foundation of our social life, and to the
mothers wc must look for the remedy. A
wise, truo motherhood, enlightened ami
thoroughly trained with tho dignity and
prestige ot equality Oelore tlie law,
can alone reform tne last increasing
evil. The same purity in thought, in word
and deed required of the sister, should be
insisted upon from tho brothers. 0 young
mothers who hold your bonny boys close to
your he.rt9, rejoicing in their innocent
prattle, and shuddering nt the thought of
years to come when they shnll go out from
your encircling arms, see to it that they arc
fts carefully taught true purity nnd chastity
as the littlo dnughters who give promise of
a perfect womanhood I Teach them that in
the sight of God therq is no distinction In ,

sin. Teach them wisely, reverently and
plainly their obligations to God and to
themselves, and the beauty, strength and
glory of a pure and innocent manhood! So
shall we have more dutiful sons, more loyal
husbands, fewer broken hearts ami blasted
homes and grey hairs brought down in sor
row to the grave ! Alas! that wc cannot
teach our sons that society ns well as God
will hold them to n strict account for
profligacy and evil doing. Tell mo whoso
fault is it that the boy or young man fcclu
that vico is at a premium and virtuo iittlc
valued, when he perceives some companion
well known to be a roue and a libertine,
because he is wealthy or of tine ad
dress and posessed of rlcasius manners, or
is a member of some "old family." cordial
ly received by his mother and sisters in his
own home? How much attention think
you will ho pay to thu gentle warning of
ins mother against an intimacy with such a
person "because he is not a good compan
ion for a boy" when he sees her smile upon
him in society, aud permit his attentions to
his sisters? What" restraint is there upon
the desire of men to frequent gambling
halls, saloons nnd houses which virtuous
women blush to name, when they know
that from theso haunts of sin and shame
they can go direct to the drawing-rooms
and parlors ot "best society," enioyinz at
the same time the dregs anil cream of life
at pleasure? What blindness is this that
closes our eyes to shameless folly in the
man, and yet makes us so ready to detect
it in the woman ! I have known cood
Christian women to speak scornfully and
angrily of those poor lost sisters whose
lives arc like the whirlpool, in which, once
caught, the wrecked vessel is carried help
lessly around, until engulfed in tho boiling
vortex and lost forever in the blackness of
darkness; who are shut out from all
thoughts oT happy, virtuous homes, and
litth! children's holy love, and suffer in a
bondage worse thad that of Ixion's wheel,
from which there is no escape this side of
the grave, and I have known theso good
women to receive with pleasant smiles and
cordial welcome the men who have placed
and keep these poor, lost sisters where they
are, with no word of protest, no act to show
the disapproval which they ought to feel.
How long before we shall dare refuse to re
ceive into our homes or recognize elsewhere
the man who makes his boast among his
fellows of his evil deeds? When we shall
dare to frown upon this dual life of re
spectability and sinfulness, ot seeming vir
tue and actual vice, and demand of our as
sociates that purity and chastity that they
demand of us? When women in a body
have the courago to do this, the fearless
ness to lift up their united voices in earnest
protest, nnd the bravery to act in concert,
we shall have a different state of affairs,
and uot until then.
We are gathered here to-day, my friend,
