, married women's names.
' In several of the smaller towns In
Wisconsin, where a strong organized
movement has been made to get the
liases of women on the registry lists,
consternation has been caused by the
discovery that a married woman is not
legally registered if the Christian name
1 by which she is designated on the lists
H .is that of her husband. Thus, "Mrs.
H ohn Smith," whose "given" name is
JMary," cannot vote unless she is
J registered as "Mary," or, if she does
vote, it must be by the troublesome
process of "swearing in." Socially, a
married woman always goes by her

TIIE AMERICAN GIRL.
' What makes the American girl a
most attractive being is her self-confi
dence, amiability and good temper.
Now, I am not a flatterer, and I must
.say that pretty -women are as much
in the minority in the United States
v as in any other country, writes Vis
count de Santo Thyrso in the Smart
Act- Beauty, like gold, is scarce every
where. You can find more gold in Cali
fornia than in Europe; but even in
California you certainly find more
dross than gold. So it is with women.
In some places, or in some countries,
tXie number of pretty women is greater
t:.an in others, and in this branch of
.-KSJtural production the United States
is not behind-hand. This, however, is
only a foreigner's view of the subject.
To tell the truth, I have never met an
'American girl of twenty who did not
-roiyslder herself fascinating; this is
Yt'-eonfidence; and for a woman to
wiifeve she is beautiful is half-way to
eal beauty. In the first place, a plain
-woman, who is aware of her plain
ness, is unhappy. Man 13 a selfish ani
mal, and despite what novels say
about sad women and the power of
tears, unhappiness is as repellent to a
bealthy mind, as disease to a healthy
bjly. Then, the conscious plain
oman gives up every thought of
pleasing, and therefore 6he does noth
ing to make herself attractive. She
does not dress In a becoming way, she
does not smile, she does not try to be
attractive. She becomes sour or dull,

Th Fire God's Wrath.
A curious story comes to us from the
suburbs. A resident in the near neigh
borhood of London has a musevru in
his house, in which the principal curi
osity Is a fire god, which has been
worshiped for many centuries in an
Indian temple. Once, when the owner
of the house took a party of people to
look at the museum, he proposed in
fun that they should all kow-tow to
the Image. This they all laughingly
consented to do, all except two ladies,
who declared it was wicked. The fire
god was revenged Avithin two months.
One of the ladies had her house burned
to the ground the week after, and the
other one (on a later date) fell back
wards into the fire and sustained some
terrible burns. We give the tale with
out comments, only commending it to

One hundred and ninety-eight years
ago the rock of Gibraltar fell into the
hands of the British by assault. The
Trince of Hesse Darmstadt command

time of four days the stronghold sur

attempted to get back the key to the
Meditteranean, but without success,
though on one occasion they got 500
men within the fort, but failed to rein

mind of ministers to give back the rock
to Spain, but 60 great an agitatation
arose against the step that it was ahan

Spain and France, which lasted from
1727 to 1783. On September 13, 1782.
uo fewer than 40,000 men constituted
the besieging army, and In the grand

upwards of 3000 red hot shots were
fired at the fortifications. Since then

it is necessary to have recourse to
another method for concealing thought.
This is where smiles are useful. Now,
there is nothing worthy of remark
about a smile when the natural result

thought would be decidedly objec

can accomplish wonders in an argu
