This by no means shows the interest of
the women in these bonds, for especial
ly in the eastern and middle states,
women own bank stock, or are deposi
tors in savings banks, to a very great
extent. If to this we add tho fact that
women in these days own real estate in
their own names, arid at their, prac
tically speaking, absolute disposal, we
shall see that tlm women of this country
have a large interest in it. And this is
n conservative factor in our history.
Whatever may bo said as to the matter
of universal suffrage for women, there is

duties of government. Nor is there any
more doubt that the Intent of this class

THE REVISION 0? THE NEW TESTAMENT.
Tho forthcoming publication of tho
revised edition of the New Testament
is awaited with much curiosity and in
terest by a largo element of all Christ ian
denominations, ami possibly with a
feeling of apprehension by many who
dread any change in tho old liible,
which has been their companion from
youth up. Where there has been any
disagreement, tho English version has
been used, but the American is given in
From a very long list of the changes,
compiled by the New York Times, we
select the following:
.Mat hew, vi., 1 "Take heed that ye
do not vour alms before men" is made
to read, "Take heed that ye do not
your righteousness before, men," which
is looked upon as a much broader com
mand, and more in accordance with the
whole, spirit of Christ's teachings. In
Matthew, xix., 17, the entire meaning
of tho text is changed, but no new doc
trine Is put" f tK, and no old one as
sailed. In the King James version the
verse reads: "Why fullest thou me
good? There is none good but one; that
is Ond. lint if thou wilt enter into life,
keep the commandments." Jn the new
vesion tin; verso reads its follows:
"Why a-kest thou me concerning that
which is good? One there is who is irood;
but if than wouldst enter into life, keep
the commandments." The question in
Mark, viii., UC, .'J7. "For what idiall it
profit a man if bo li i 1 1 gain the
whole world and lose his own soul? Or
what shall tt man give in exchange for
his soul?" is rendered: "For what doth
it profit a man to gain the whole world
and forfeit his life? For what should a
man give in exchange for his life?" In
Luke, ix., "And there came a voice
out of the cloud, saying. This is my
beloved Son; hear Him,'" tho new
work reads, "And there came a voice
out of the clouds, saying, 'This is My
Son, My chosen." Luke, xvi., H, !),
have also been materially changed. In
the present version they read: "And the
Lord commended the unjust steward be
cause he had done wisely; for the
children of this world are in their gen
eration wiser than the children of light.
And 1 say unto you, make to yourself
friends of the mammon of unrighteous
ness, that when ye fail they mayrecievo
you into everlasting habitations." In the
revision these two verses read as follows;
"And tlie Lord commended the unjust
steward because he had done wisely.
For the sons of this world are, for their
own generation, wiser than the sons of
the light. And I say unto you, make
to yourself friends by meansof the mam
mon of unrightcousnes.s.thatwhen itshall
fail, they may recieve you into the eter
The story of the Pool of Uethesda, as
told iu John, v., is materially changed
by taking from it that portion which re
lates to tho miraculous powers of the
water of the pool. In verse 3 "In
these lay a great multitude of impotent
folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting
for the moving of the water" the last
seven words are stricken out, and verse
4 "For an angel went down at a certain
season into the pool ami troubled the
water: whosoever then lirst after the
troubling of tho water stepped in whs
made w holeof whatcverdiscase ho had,"
is omitted altogether.
Acts. xi.. 47, "And the Lord added to
the Church daily such as should be
saved," is made to read, "And the Lord
added to them day by day those that
were being saved." In Acts, viii., 37,
"And Philip said, if thou bclicvest with
all thine heart thou mayest. And ho
answered ami said, I believe that Jesus
Christ is the son of (od."eoniu isingthe
eunuch's profes-ion of faith, isexpuuged,
as is also the expression, "Let u not
light against fiod," in Acts, xxiii., 9.
In Acts, xv ii. , 2:i, "For as I pa-scd by
and beheld your devotions 1 found an
altar with tiii inscription: To the un
known (lod. Whom therefore ye ig
norautly worship, Him declare 1 unto
you," l he hitter part is made to read,
"To an unknown (lod. W hat, therefore,
ve worship in ignorance, that declare
1 unto you."
The Boston police department is ex
pected to cost over .'.)n0,0ini next year,
an excess of about r? 10, ooo over the pres
ent year, which is caused by an increase
iu the force.
"Is there a letter here iu u scented
envelope for my wife?" he asked tho
(xistmaster, while the green tire from
lis eyes made the ollice look like a leafy
forest. ''Yes, sir." answered the post
master, as he handed it out. The jeal
ous man tore it open tit once, when, lo
and behold! it was the milliner's bill
for $100. The end.
An Empress Making Calk
While at this place, says a corre
spondent, wo saw the Empress and Em
peror of Austria, very often. It is not
far from (Jodalo, nnd her majesty likes
to ride over, go directly to the stable,
change her riding habit, then enter tho
house for a short call, after which ho
takes a fresh horse and returns home.
One day tho countess, hearing that
their majesties had ridden into the sta
bles, hurried to the stalls to receive
them. Alas! Elizabeth was changing
her habit in tho stall beside her horse,
and Franz Yosef had to act as screen to
this impromptu toilet scene. The
countess never told exactly what they
did and said but her maid gathered
enough next day to describe it to mo as
being very disagreeable. The grooms
told mo tliat the Empress often changed
her dress in this way in preference to
going to tho house. "Less danger of
taking cold," she says, and nobody
dare dispute tho imperial will.
She refuses all refreshment except a
glass of water during her visit, and one
of the grooms carries a little square
package of tissue paper, for tho im
perial lady never uses any other sub
stance with which to wipe the perspira
tion from her pretty face. I have often
hoard her say 'Pupor," ami seen the
groom hurry forward w ith the dolioiite

The announcement of tho formation
of ice during the hottest days of last
summer in the caves near Zchinval, in
the Caucasus, attracted many travelers.
It is reported that these caves are
filled with ice only ilur'mz the hottest
weather, and that the newly formed ice
disappears with the fall of trie ther
mometer. This curious phenomenon
greatly puzzles the Caucasians.
The Cumberland Valley rond, In
Pennsylvania, wants to "utilize tho

points at :i o'clock every morning. The

A member of tho Canadian Parlia
ment, who had his coat stolen from
J i i in iu Oitawa, borrowed one of a
friend, and its iMvas much too small,
was arrested by" the police on bis way
home on suspicion of having stolen if,
and taken to the police station. While
he was i here the thief who had stolen
his emit was brought in. Explanations
were made, the member was released,
ami the thief was the next day senten
ced to pri-on for one year.
The Meiitone papers report two sui
cides at Monte Carlo. Some days ago
a man rushed out of the gaming-room,
exclaiming: "1 am done for; I have lost
20(i,i nit if." On the staircase be drew a
revolver from his pocket and blew his
brains out. The other man, wandering
on the shore, was seen to sit down on a
rock and reH his head on his hand. A
minute after a detonationw as heard. lie,
too, had blown his brains out.
The debt of Virginia in round
numbers is $l'i,00O,0itf) consol bonds
bearing tax-receivable (j per cent
coupons, and $rf,0OO'O00 10-40 (Mc
Culloch) bonds bearing 3 per cent,
interest, making $2.j,(0,000 of the
debt on which the interest is secured
by tax-receivable coupons, all of which
must come into the treasury during the
year and offset or intercept about $1,
200,000 revenue. The "peeler'' and
"old bonds" represent $12,000,000
more, with unpaid interest for more
than ten years.
The Pennsylvania supremo court has
decided a case growing out of the
manner whieU tho Philadelphia horse
cars were packed during the centen
nial. Hernard Walling was crowded off
the platform of a car on theOcrmantown
line, aud the damages awarded his
widow aro now continued by the
supreme court, which thus describes the
the packed cars of that time: Conduc
tor, driver and passengers acted as if
there was room so long as a man could
tiud a rest for his feet and a placo to
bold on with his hands.
Mr. Fronde writes of his first term at
Oxford: "We did pretty much what
we liked. There was much dissipation,
and the whole manner of lifo was need
lessly extravagant. Wo were turned
Iooe at IS, pleasures tempting us on
all sides. No dean or tutor ever volun
teered to help our inexperience. Tbe
prices which we paid for everything
were preposterous. Tho college authori
ties would take no trouble, and their
own charges were on the same extrava
gant scale. The wretched novice was
the object of general plunder till ho
had learned how to take care of him
self. I remember calculating that I
could have lived at a boarding-house
on contract, with every luxury which 1

tho neighborhood of Walton and Way
bridge, are now accounted for, says the
London W'iii ll. The Convalescent Hos
pital, lying beiween these two places,
and supported chiefly by voluntary con
tributions from tho neighborhood, has
been found to be a nest of thieves and
tickct-of-leave men. Tho discovery was
made by the detective sent down from
Scotland Yard to investigate tho matter.
Happening one day to meet tho poor
invalid inmates of this convalescent
homo out for an airing, ho suddenly
recognized some of tho most notorious
thieves of modern days.
Two Spanish beauties iu Paris, tho
Countess Multedo and Senorita Penedo,
bad a narrow escapo of being suffocated
by natural flowers in their hair and tho
trimming of their ball dresses as they
were returning homo from (jueen Isabel
la's noireo in a closely shut-up carriage.
The flowers were profusely employed In
garlands, Tho ladies for some tlnio
chatted gayly. One of them then be
came silent and then the other, (mint
Multedo. who was with them, grew
alarmed when neither of them replied
to observations he made and questions
he put, and all the more so that he felt
oppressed by the perfume of the flowers.
When he caused tho carriage to stop
and opened the window be found them
Insensible, but they soon recovered
when taken into the air.
