Fellow-Citizens: Since last I
stood before ybu I hare bad occa
sion to witness many indignities
puft upon our sex by that thing in
breeches called "ir an." Since the
operatic season has opened I have
watched him closely. I find him
a fraud of the first water.
So long as a member of our
downtrodden sex is free to wan
der at her own sweet will, and
holds the power of rejection or ac
.ceptance in her own white hand;
he raves and cavorts and follows
her about, and calls her by a hun
dren names of heatAian divruities,
and makes himself a long-cared
beast about her. But mark the
sequel. No sooner has the nup
tial ceremony (that hideous farce
of our social. relations) been per*
formed than he goes forth like a
cunning serpent, seek'ng some
other woman to devour.

she accepts the invitation her

The Etery of "Annie Laurie."
The ifamous song that is sung I
by all singers of the present day,
I am informed, is a mystery as to
the anthor. I was raised on the
next farm to James Laurie, An
nie Laurie's father. I was per
sonally acquainted with both her
:'nd her father, and also with the
author of the song, Knowing
those facts ,'I have been reqnueted
by my friends to give the lpublic
the benefit of my knowledge,
which I have consented to (1do0.
Annie Laitrie was born in 1827,
and was about 17 vears old when
the incident occurred which gave
rise to the song bearing her name.
James Laurie, Annie's father, was
a farmir, who lived on and own
ed a very large farm called Thrag.
lestown. in Dumfreisshire,. Scot
land. lie hired a great deal of
help, and among those he empley
ed was a man by the name of
Wallace to act as foreman, and
while in his employ Mr. Wallace
,fell, in love with Annie Laurie.
which fact her fatiher soon learned
and forthwith discharged him.
He gent to his home, which was
in )Iaxwelton, and was taken sick
the very night he reached there,
an'k the nett morning, wb~en An
nie Laurie heard of it, she came
to his bedside and waited on him
until lie (lied, and on his death
bed he composed the song enti
tied "Annie Laurie."-Chicago.
