Between a cross man and a rrosg baby tbe
choice is in favor of the baby. Everybody
know that women are anxious to bavu juat a
many babies as possible, and the men should
not feel under any obligations whatever to as
sist in the care of them.
i "It 'a woman caste her first ballot at
twenty -one, will it be possible for her to cun-
coal her age after that?" When a woman has
some other aim and ambition in life besides
getting man led, she will not desire to conceal
her ago, and when men look for some at-
tributes in a wife besides mars beauty of face
and figure, she will not feel that her powers of
attraction are growing loss with every pawing

This is something that detlos all guessing.

How One Woman Earn Her Living
Cor. Boston Saturday Evsutug Journal.
I have often heard it complained that there
wits nothing for women to do by which titey
could earn as much money a men. Ferhitpa
tlmre is nothing in tbe same line of busiuc a
Unit followed by mou, but taking all the pro
fiH(oii followed by women, it aoem to me
that tlier is a great deal of money made by
them. The enormous sums mado by singers and
actresses are to woll kuowo Utneod mentioning.
But there are other linn of business) that
womun may follow who have no natural gift
as these. I heard, tho other day, of a lady
who was making a handsome income for her
self, aud all in tbe most quiet way. This lady
is a Miss Martin. I do not suppose there is
any objection to mentioning her name, as it is
well known by a great many people. Mise Mar
tin is the daughter of a gontleman living near
Auburn, in this sUU, and who at one time wm
very wealthy, but, although tbe family still
live in the old homestead, which is a noblr,
mansion, they are very much reduced in uir
cmiiHtunce. Mies Martin, when ebe became
old enough to want money, and to know that it
did not always come for the wanting, cunt
about her for something to do by which sho
could at least earn a decent living and not be
dependent on hor father.
It soeiiied as though all the avenues were
closod. Hlie was not gifted in any particular
way, though she was a woman of excellent ed
ucation, and had all the advantages that came
from binh social position. Hut she neither
sang woll enough for stage purposes, nor h&d
she any histrionic talent. In giving th sub
ject serious consideration, she remembered that
there was one thing she could do very well,
and that was pickling and preserving. She
told her friends that she was going to n.ake a
largo quantity of pickle and prenrves of dif
ferent kinds and that she wanted to sell '.heuu
Knowing what an excellent housekeeper she
was, they know that anything that was made
under hor supervision would be sure v be
good, so she nad no trouble in selling aU she
made the first year. The second year she mad
more, and sold aU. The third year she made
more yet. and was unable to supply tbe de
mand. The fourth year she increase! her fa
cilities, and ber reputation bad bv this time
spread so far that she did a very large busi
ness, and even sold to some of thelarger Htoro
in New York. Now, a friend of hers told me
tbe other dav, her profit from pickles and pre
serve reach the very comfortable sum of
six to ten thousand dollars a year.
And she only work from May to November.
Auburn being a little far from the New York
markets, where fruit can be bought best and
cheapest, Miss Martin has come down and
taken a place at Glen Cove, to he noar her
friend, Mrs. 8. L M. Barlow, as well n to gain
the advantages of a nearer residence to New
York. One of the secfets of lkta Martin's suc
chhs is tbst everything she make is the very
bet of its kind Ail the ingredient she uses
in bur pickles and preserves are the beet in the
market, an though she employs a number of
men and women, she superintends everything
herself ; and while her arVv'.ta are all in the
shops they have a homelike taste that is un
mistakable All the jars bear ber Initials writ
ten in fac simile of her autoxeaph on a neat
label on the side. A avter of Miss Martii: see
ing her success, cast about bsr for something
to do. Of course she did not want to go into
the same line of business, and finally she
struck npon cake-making as a livelihood, and
her cakes are now almost as celebrated a her
sister's pickles and preservo. Hhe aiill lives
a Auburn, but she ecoives ordors from New
York, and even Newport Miss Martin's cakes
are considered an essential parlor" a well-regulated
pantry in New Yoik.
Women of the tircna.
"Of the womeu that enter the business," said
a circua man to a neswpaper reporter, 'their
origin is nut always certain, but a majority of
them are born into the business and know
nothing outside of it There are a few notable
exceptions, but perhaps a majority of them ate
women of the ordinary mental attainment and
peculiarly exclusive lives, however contrary to
common opinion that may seem. Until they
are married, and that i generally very early in
life, they are almost invariably accompanied by
their fathers, brothers, or mothers, whose ur
veillanco is usually very strict Ladies who
ride.or perform daring feats look down upon
the members of their owu sex like the pretty
Montague, who are uot acrobats. They declare
that such ladies 'have no talent' A woman
born pretty is regarded by them in
the same nuiiao ae a woman born with a
beard or no arms merely as a curiosity. Cir
cus people seldom care to make acquaintance
outiiilc of the business. This applies particu
larly to the women. Knowing that tdey are
cot' regarded a a olasi in a fair a light as
they should be, they return the sumo sort of
distrust, and outside of their most intimate
familv friends hardly know or trust any one.
l'erliupa.to emphasize this fact, I can cite an in
stance in my own experience where I have
been with a company which included some
thirty women, and, although I stood close to
the management, my acquaintance with the
women wo never more than the ordinary ex
change of salutations excopt with two, and
they were both married ladies and old enough
to be my mother. Public opinion concerning
circus womeu is almost entirely erroneous ana
does them the greatest injustice, although this
opinion derives its origin from the very exclu
sively the women depend upon for their pro
tection. The publio knows circus people as
being all of one kind and olass, when in truth
there as is much diversity among them as is
possible to conceive in a like number of people
banded togethor in any other calling."
"From which tex do you.'get the best oper
ators?" "From among the men. Borne year ago I
employed operators from both 8exe.iiidicrim
mulely, but now I employ mou exclusively,
with jjio exception of a very few ladies whom I
have right under my eye"
"What is the difference betwoou thorn?"
"I think it lies principally in the fact that
whiln the men adopt and oarry on telegraphy
as the work of their lives, th ladlos take it up
as a temporary employment, which will oou
coinu to an euil by Ihoir getting married. A a

Any moment that one of them 1 not eotivufy

bit of sowing, or to begin a conversation with a
friend, Then when she is wanted in a hurry

or has to thread hor needle, or part with hir
companion before she can attend, I have dona

A Lady-Like arrownew of View,
We came aero th following paragraph la
a story the other day:
"Bertram half smiled a he looked Into her

ih exterior. He was one of those who do not
object to a certain lady-like narrowness of view
Bertram Is evidently built on the "sphere" and
"11 reside" plan. He is ous of those who mis
take squeamishnes for.delicacy, ignorance for
excellence, and bigotry for righteousness. "A
certain lady-like narrowness of view" is about
the worst tttribiite a woman could possess.
We have known such women. They are a

They "don't want vote," and they don't want
any other womeu to vote. They neither un
derstand uor approve any ituauon in ife but
their own. Being narrow they cannot be either
tolerant or liberal. Evorytblng not compre
hended iu their little rang of life is wrong
ami ought not to be.
Once it was supposed that the less a woman
know the groater lady she was. In tlioso good
old times fools were in clover. The woman
who was ignorant of everything in the world
but embroidery and fainting at a moment's no
tice was considiirod great With all its oppor
tunities for acquiring souse and wisdom the
world has not altogether outgrown this density
of ignorance. Htill there ar woman who are
ostentatiously untaught, and men who think

In other words, the demand for more color in

most civilized nations have dark hair, and that
rod and auburn tresses are a sign of a descent
from a savage ancestry. Cold weather and
exposure results in a bleaching of the com

women arc well clad and well warmed, the
secretions of the body are so affected as to
darken tbe hair and beard. When the time

Women and Xewepaper Work.
Quite a change i taking place iu the social
aspect of the duily press, and it is a little curi
ous that fewur women are employed upou it
than was the case tou years ago. TUrn, two,
three or four women were employed, in a
more or less regular capacity upon almost ey.
ery daily paper in this city, whereas now
rarely moro than one ho been retained, and
these msiuly on personal groumls,aud by mak
ing for them special places. There are women
contributors among the "outsiders," who do
specUl work and send it to the office, but the
number of women on the regular staff of the
daily press is very limited. The causos of this
change are not far to seek. Men do not like to
deal with women in business, and there is a
sense of restraint in the presence of women in
reRard to toliacco, talk, working with coats off
and the like, which in offices composed of
twenty men to one woman, become burden
some, and is popularly not considered to pay,
If a woman is employod she must be shut tip
in a room bv herself ; and this is not alway
available. Moreover night work is more diffi
cult for them than for men and it is always
necesiisry to specialize their functions. They
cannot lie Bent out at any hour to glean news
in regard to impending event, or sudden dis

An amusing story la told by Dr. Gulich of a
company of missionaries on on of the Mloro
nesian islands, in th Paoiflo ocean. Aftei
having been left a year without tidings from
home, they heard that a mall had arrivod for
them on one of the neighboring islands. They
hasteuod to the place, and sked the chiefs
whether a package had come for them. A big
bundle of mall matter letter and papers from
American friends was brought forward. Ad
cording to Polynesian etiquette, presents wiar
given to the ohiefs, a long conversation f'-l-lowed,
and elaborate ooremonie of politeness
were performed. But unfortunately, the
gift were too valuable, "The chief, being
unable to appreciate the worth of any
thing not good to eat, nonoluded that the mis
sionaries had received some extra delicacies,
and forthwith took th mall away from them
The missionaries explained and entreated, but
in vain. The chiefs and their companions
began to eat th supposed delicacies. First
they bit off tough mouthful of letter and
papers, chowed aud tried to swallow them, but
none of thorn could make the tiling go down.
Then they put some of it into a pot and boiled
it, but the taste remained unsatisfactory. Next
they mixed some of it with herb, and boiled it,
friend it, roasted it,in short, prepared it in all th
different way known totnem for preparing
food, while the poor, helpless missionaries,
stood by and saw their long-looked-for mall
disappear niece by pieoe, until it waa hope
