CAIRO BULLETIN: THURSDAY MOKN1NQ MAY
Tho Daily Bulletin.
A Letter From Cache.
Dear Bulletin: Darius hits just band
ed uie the paper cootaiog Elizabeth Cudy
Stanton's spcechmunt before the Niueteenth
Century Club. I am really turpriofd at her
views when she ha always had things her
own way. Her father made an idol of her,
while her husband well, it would be quite
safe to say that Mr. El zabetb S. was small
potatoes in that house.
Perhaps hard times are to blamo for her
bitterness. Maybe when she was called
upon this sprini to help pay the preacher,
Bhe wanted the money for a new velvet
gown, or some more lace; and instead of
saying that she thought the pastor was not
a man calculated to edify and that it would
therefore be as well to select that time for
withdrawing from the congregation till one
truly called in every sense of the word wai
sunt, she promptly formed herself into a
committee of ways and means for devising
a method by which to avoid the risk of
being expected to contribute to the suppoit
of any preacher of any denomination.
She asks what Christianity has done for
women anyway, and goes on to moan that
the prolonged slavery of woman is the
darkest page in human history, and wails
out that her creation even was an after
though', and tells how she was tortured
and persecuted to that extent her sufferings
caused he most stolid historians to mingle
their tears with the ink which recorded
them, the faults of the church. The church,
she says, heaped all sorts of insults upon
the heads of hundreds and hundreds of old
women, guiltless of crime, and "hundreds
and hundreds of young girls, innocent as
the angels of heaven." It is only Christian
ity and the creator she is annoyed at, the
former for its cruelty to her sex, and the
latter for putting her on the programme aB
second. She believes in heaven, you; just
what sort of a one I cannot tell, but there
never lived the woman unable to answer a
question. Therefore, I make no doubt but
Mrs. Stanton could give an outline of her
ideus of the place.
I honestly think the old lady is unduly
excited over her place in Eden. To mo it
seems highly proper for Adam to have
been a pre-Eve institution. It gave him
time to look around and find out the most
digestible meate, the most toothsome vege
table, the most luscious fruits, all of which
knowledge he could put to practical use for
Eve's benefit when she came. Of course
he made mistakes. Of course it was only
by testing the thing that ho could decide
upon the mtrits of roasted skunk as com
pared with rabbit, or of rhubarb leaves as
compared with stalks of the same, or of
garlic, with summer squastj. It was much
better for us to have such a precedent than
if bis wile bad to bustle around and learn
all that for bis pleasure. Come to think,
that is pretty much the way with Indians.
Their squaws are privileged to do such
work as butchering, jerking the beef aud
helping the ponies drag it up. Our friend
from New York is not alone in her theories.
As to her complaints against Christianity
for torturing people, those young girls
would not, it is true, have suffered in that
particular way if their lines had fallen in
non-christian or anti-chribtian places. In
some localities their mothers would have
fed them one by one in their babyhood to
the alligators; in some places they would
have been sacked and thrown to the fishes
by jealous paramours; in some places their
bodies would have furuiahed dainties for
the table of the princo of
the realm; in some, their life
blood would have poured out to be used in
mixing mortar, as was the case not many
months ago with two hundreds maidens
who never heard of Christ. Neither did
the King who ordered the sacrafice. The
old woman would have run a fiir chance in
some of those sections at least, of having
their days shortened with a club, a muscu
lar heathen at one end of it knowing with
tolerable certainty where to strike the blow
that would rid the family of surplus elder
Another remark of Mrs. Stanton's puzzles
me ; viz : that women knew nothing of laws,
common or civil, and that certain church
men are determined they never shall. I
don't see why any woman that wants to
cannot familiarize herself with as many of
the laws as she pleases. Let her take some
of the time now devoted to that blessed
arrasene, and sweet pounded brass, and
carved wood, and that soul satisfying
scratching on paper with burned twig?, and
the last novel, and in a year's time she
will know enough about her government to
satisfy her. It doesn't stand to reason that
a woman can crowd so much more into
twenty-four hours than a man can. She
must give up art if sho takes to law. When
Darius was road supervisor be had a great
thick book full of sections and things. I (
read considerable in it, and my preacher
didn't object. He came for & setting of
eggs and saw me with it and he said,
"Seeking knowledge, Mrs. Green? It's a
pearl of great price."
As to our voting, if we all vote and work
what will become of our home lifef We
know that men cannot vote, work and keep
house could we do more than they! If we
should vote it certainly would not bo in
such a listless way that we could attend
strictly to the many home duties, beautiful,
refining, enobling duties, till time to hurry
to the nearest poll, drop the mngio slip and
go back to unfinished work. Judging
"woman," as sister Stanton calls us, by my
self, she would want to bo thoroughly post
ed hb to tho hsues and the merits ef the
different candidates. It has been said that
women voter would bring up the tone.
Fallacious reasoning 1 There are many half
way refined women who would lose what
little femininity they have without its be
ing a boot bed by tho worse female element.
Even Edwin Arnold and Moncure Conway
would scarcely go so far as to believe in
transmigration of delicacy without soul.
Mll8. D. Gheen.
Cache, May 5th, 1884. .
In the KiiKlihliinaii Suerir to
I ho '
An English baronet who traveled re
cently in th United States bns written!
an urtiulo for tho Nineteenth Hentury
Jkvieiv, in which ho compares English,
men and worueu with American men
and women to tho disadvantage of tho
latter. Our women, according to him,
are not as handsome or as well devel
oped as those- of England, whilo our'
men are inferior in physique. This ho
says is duo to tho grettter attention
given in England to outdoor sports.'
iho Englishman plays cricket and
luwu tenuis, practices "in boats and in
yachts far moro than tho American.
The latter is absorbed in business, llo
goes to see a baseball match by pro
fessionals, but rarely plays himself.
Then, the average English man and
woman do far more walking than do
our people iu the United Slates. All
educated Englishmen hold to the view
that tho practice of athletics is very de
sirable. At a recent rural dinner, Sir Charles
Dilke, the well known cabinet minister
gave it as his view that "England owed
to the practice of physical exercise not
only a great deal of its muscle and
power, but also a great deal of its suc
cess, and, under Providence, much of
its glory in the world." Had Mr.
Gladstone been called upon ho would
doubtless have given the same testi
mony. For, although in his seventies,
he spends hours every week in felling
trees and iu taking long and rapid
walks. A New York writer who was
at the Carnival in Montreal thus des
crioes the typo of girl be saw: "The
English girl is tall and strongly built.
She walks with her figure rigidly erect
and her head held up, from conscious
ness of strength rather than from
pride. Her cheeks aro like the sides of
a peach that has just becrun to ripen.
The rose blush blends with tho pink,
that is iu turn lost in tho general
creamy tint of tho whole face. Waves
of flaxen or light brown hair curtain
the forehead, or perhaps ber hair is '
pulled into a cloud that projects be
youd her sealskin cap. Sao has big,
deep-blue eyes, eloquent of good health'
and good nature, and blazing at a
touch of excitement. Being an athlete
she is a model of good health, and the
equal of her brothers at tho dinner
table. Her nose and mouth are not too
fashionably small. They match her
fine stature, and the healthy, graceful
carriage that tells of stout "limbs and
What a lesson tho Montreal girl
teaches to the New York mothers who
bring their daughters up in-doors like
hot-house plants, for fear they will not
be lady-like and womanly! Theso ro
bust girls, iu modesty, in grace, in
softness of speech and femininity gen
erally, aro the peers of tho daughters
of Murray Hill, and yet there is hardly
one that cannot stand by her brother's
side in whatever sport bo is enjoying.
These girls can climb a mountain liko
deer, they can skate like the women of
Holland, they are at home on snow
shoes, the mad sport of tho toboggan
hills is every-day fun to them."
There has, however, been a reform
in this country during the last quarter
of a century. Gymnasiums are moro
common, especially in colleges. Out
door sports are far moro popular than
they were, and tho educated young
man has plenty of chance to improve
his physique by good muscular exer
cises. Our girls, however, are not so
well off as their English sisters. Long
country walks aro not popular with
our young women, but making allow
ance for these shortcomings, few
Americans will admit that our girls
are not in every respect equal to their
Iteports to the Lime-Kila Club.
The librarian reported tho receipt of
several valuable books during tho past
week, one of them being a volume con
taining tho history, trial, and execu
tion of thirty different murderers. Ho
announced that tho roof leaked in sev
en different places, and that much of
tho literature had to bo placed in the
oven and dried previous to being lent
out to members. He asked for an ap
propriation of $125 to stop tho leaks.
"Dat's zactly do way wid some
folks," replied the president. "Dey
buy a $100 kerridgo to be pulled by a
$50 boss When wo expend $125 to
preserve $G0 worth of books we shall
have inaugurated a financial policy dat
will soon obleege us to rent post-oflice
boxes to receive our dunniu' letters."
Tho treasurer said ho had discovered
an attempt to tamper with tho club
safe. Some one had evidently tried to
unlock tho door with a boot-jack, as
the key-hole had been found filled with
scrap-iron. He would announce for
tho benefit of crooks that tho safe never
contained above 30 cents in cash, and
that any attempt to blow it open
would surely result iu briugiug down
the cntiro roof of the hall.
Tho janitor reported that tho north
west corner of the hall had lately sunk
eight inches, but ho had no recom
mends to make. If tho rest of tho
building didn't sink to tho samo level
members would soon get accustomed
to walking on a slant end and no ex
penso would bo cutailed.
As most of tho lamps had gone out
for want of fodder, Iho meeting then
adjourned. A troit Free l'rcss.

We most always have some Indians
here, says a Washington letter writer.
Thoy want to see the president onco in

tary of the interior want to see them.
The Indians always have a good time.
They are brought hero in good stylo,
oarefully siiown all the attractions of
the town, and lionised by the people in
a certain sort of society. They don't
usually get tho thing they come for;
but thoy always get something, and
sometimes it seems better than the
thing asked for. Somo Now Mexico
Indians, rocently at tho capital, car
ried back with thorn Ideas somewhat
more extravagant than usual. They
began the story with tho remark that
President Arthur was tho wealthiest
man in the world; that in his great
treasury gold and silver wero as plen
tiful as tho sands on tho plains of New
Mexico, and that in this great store
house the president has 200 wives, who
have nothing else to do but count out
paper money for him all day long.

fully fifteen feet in diameter, and its
twisted branches stretch out far and
wide, seemingly covering tho entiro in

taint out through tho pores of the skin.
Mr. Robert A. Ealey, of Dickson, Tenn., writes
nnderdateof March 10, "I had chills and
fever, followed bv rheumatism, for three years, so
that I was not able to attend to my business; had
tr ed almost every kind of medicine, and fonnd

I tried one bottle and my health began to Improve.
I continued m til I had taken six bottles, and It
ha set mo on my feet, as sound and as well at
ever. I recommend it to all similarly afflicted."
Letters from twenty-three (23) ol the leading re
tall drui.-L'ists of Atlanta say, nnner date March 24,
ISM: "We sell more of Swift's Specific than any
other one remedy, aud three to ten times as much
as sny other blood medicine. We tell It to all
cine es, and many of the beet families use It as
general health tonic."
I am sure that Swift's Specific saved my life. I
was terribly poisoned with malaria, and was given
up to die. Swift's Specillc relieved me prompllr
aud entirely. I think it the greatest remedy of
tho age. '

I have known and nsed Swift's Specific for more

results from its use than from any remedy In or
