THE MIND OF WOMAN. e
Much has been said on the sub. sell
ject ot Womsu i all alges, elspw, 1po
tally in reference to her mind and vie
education. It is doubtless a back mil
neyed theme and yet remains a lab
mooted quebtion to day, whether or wb
not, she is suseoptible of as high pri
education as man. We do not know pal
positively that they are, taken as a the
whole, because as a whole the ex- do.
periment has never been tried, on tal
the contrary it has been carried but a a
to a very meagre extent. Never lea
thelers some have s:ruggled on in mai
the face of oppisition and tidicule mn
and proven to the world what wo rel
men can become. This high eduesa bil
tion of woman is but in its infancy. art
If it had been put in force eentariae she
ago, and these "barbarous custotms he
that have deseended from the dark cii
ages" bad been exorcised and be- .m
come extinct, we might have seen tel
to4day bow universally this christian an
civilization would still be moving to
onward and upward to the acme of MI
all that is great and good. be
It bua often been said: "Women se
never invent anything of utility." s,

Some time since there was a pub- don
sibed article stating "that it wats for
sellishness it their counservative op- sae
ionmMnts, rather than a decided oon- cat
vcltion of the inferlority of woman's Ind
mind, that iuaSenoes them to choose tbi
labor that is more remunerative and me
which allows more liberties and set
privileges, and, that the coarse on- cat
paidkl drudges work is distasteful to wa
them and is thrust upon women to at
do." Now that as a rule is a mis- wh
take. It may be so in case where Il.
a woman unfortunately gets a shift. sri
Iess husband, hot generally when a ato
man is able to live easily and at all
much liberty, the wife is allowed the
relief from her domestic respousi- on
bilities in like prolportion. If they as
are poor sand be bha to work bard, If
abe is expected to do the same in an
her sphere-though I think the prin-. lie
ciple and custom of placing so many enr
men in clerkships, book.keeping, lop
s teaching and other work of the like, p
a and keepinl womea in idleness or we
rough work is altogether wrong. wl

be fooud to discharge such duties, "1
