WHAT IT WAS BY NATURE AND WHAT
MAN HAS MADE IT.
Intended For Maternity and Homekeepera,
Many Are Driven Into Occupation. That
Were One Only For Men Some Very
The reiteration of any statement, how
ever important or timely, becomes mo
notonous, but so long as mischievous
ideas are promulgated they must bo met
and discredited, though it bo seventy
times seven and more. Otherwise the
world would remain eternally in error.
It will bo admitted, even by tho mast
radical of tho so called woman's rights
advocates, that, in conformity to her
peculiar physical rgaiiization, tho fe
malo of the human race has been espe
cially created to perform a specific work
in the domestic economy. This is, com
prehensively stated, to bear children and
maintain the home. On the other hand,
it was manifestly intended that tho
male of the hnmun race should cherish
and protect her, assuming the severer
physical labor which must be performed
and shielding her from every danger
that might threaten the health, happi
ness and perpetuation of the species. In
the original plan one dnty was not re
garded subordinate or inferior to the
other. Nature had simply divided tho
burden of existence, assigning to one tho
activo part of providing food and shel
ter, and to the other tho more important
part in tho reproduction of the species
to strip it of all its sentimentality and
state it plainly.
But in this, as in all things else, the
majority of men have subverted tho
law of nature and ha vo promulgated the
theory that they, the actual earners of
wealth, owe little to women who mere
ly raiso children and preside over the
home which they, tho men, have found
ed, and which they alone work to sus
tain. This assigns maternity and home
keeping to an inferior position and places
the mother and tho head of the house
hold in the attitude of dependent, who
must bo content with whatever the hus
band and father sees fit to give her, dis
regarding common justice and that
which is her rightful due tho absolute
and equal division of all that accrues
through his work and her economy.
Tho increasing love of luxnry among
men, the comfort which club lifo pro
vides, with emigration from thickly
populated centers to remote fields of in
dustry, have reduced the number of mar
riageable men in many states. This,
with tho unwillingness of tho few to
accept tho dependence of tho nature do
scrilicd above, has also largely increased
tho number of unmarried women who
choose to, or arc forced to, provide for
themselves. Whether they belong to ono
class or the other, it remains none the
less certain that whatever income they
are to have they must acquire by their
own efforts. They have no other alter
native, unless they are willing to accept
tho distasteful charity of wealthy friends
or relatives, or join the army of the lost,
whoso brief season of ease and luxury
almost inevitably ends in the prison,
the almshouse or the potter's field.
And yet, again and again, and still
again, solemn exhortations are sounded
from the pulpit warning "woman" from
deserting the home, her proper sphere,
to join the feverish multitudes who
crowd the marts and highways of the
world. Women themselves, weak, fool
ish and unthinking, selfishly satisfied
with their own seclusion, echo tho sense
less and cruel command.
For it is cruel, as heartless as tho sug
gestion of tho pampered French queen
whose subjects, starving for bread, were
advised "to put a chicken in the pot "
The wife of a famous Union general
some time ago deplored tho exodus of
woman from the home into business and
tho professions. In all her life she had
never known want or tho Lock of a thing
sho desired. After tho death of her hus
band friends and tho government, in
consideration of his service, provided
for her so that she might enjoy the samo
comfort to the end of her days. Not a
dollar of tho generous incomo was the
result of her own personal effort, and
but for tho bounty of tho country she
might have learned something of the
stress which forces other women to seek
an honest livelihood for themselves.
The situation has passed beyond the
power of any human being to alter it,
Instead cf decreasing, no matter what
tho result may be, the exodus will con
tinue. Those women who have braved
the world have tested through experience
the sweets of independence and the satis
faction which comes from being able to
do work and do it well, which not only
provides a living for tho present, but in
dependence in old age. Poverty, help
lessness bread and board that are bit
terly grudged have hurried many a wo
man to her grave whose old age, had she
been able to benefit by the now condi
tions today, would have been serene
There is no fear that women will
cease to marry and to aid in founding
homes, but the skilled workwoman of
the twentieth century will be able to de
mand that equality in matters of domes
tic authority and finance which ber ig
norant sister dared not ask, hampered by
the limitations of her sex, aggravated by
her ignorance. A new era has dawned.
Neither prejudice, nor conservatism, nor

A GREAT BLOWHOLE.
The Sfngmizr Rock Formation on the Ana.
Quo of the most pleasant as well at
famous tourist resorts in New South
Wales is situated on the coast some 70
miles south of Sydney. The center of
this district is Kiama, a picturesqnt
and thriving town surrounded by rich
agricultural country, and which hat
been built upon an old igneous flow of
basalt that has solidified and crystal
lized into hnge columns of what is pop
ularly called 4 ' blnestono, This, forma
tion is seen to perfection on tho west
coast of Scotland and north of Ireland
at St. Fingal's cave and other places,
and those who are acquainted with the
rugged appearance of the coast in these
places can form a good idea cf the ap
pearance of tho New South' Wales coast
at this point Kiama,' unlike other tour
ist resorts, can be thoroughly enjoyed
in either fair or stormy weather, and
those who visit the town when a good
galo is blowing have an opportunity of
witnessing a sight tho like of which
docs not exist eLsewhero on our globe,
Tho famous "Blowhole" here situated,
in tho middle of a rocky headland run
ning out into the sea, forms a truly won
drous sight With each successive break
er tho ocean spray is sent shooting up
into the air sometimes as high as from
300 to 400 feet, descending in a drench
ing shower and accompanied by a rum
bling noise as of distant thunder, which
can be heard for many miles around.
This "Blowholo" is a singular nat
ural phenomenon, and consists of a per
pendicular hole, nearly circular, with a
diameter of abont ten yards across, and
has the appearance of bciug the crater
of an extinct volcano. This is connected
with tho ocean by a cave about 100 yards
in length, the seaward opening of which
is in all respects similar to St. Fingal's
cave on tho west coast of Scotland, the
same perpendicular basaltic columns
forming the sido walls of each. Into
this cave towering waves, rush during
stormy weather, and as the cave extends
some distance farther into the rock than
the "Blowholo," on the entrance of
each wave this cavity becomes full of
compressed air, which, when the tension
becomes too great, blows the water with
stupendous force up to tho perpendicu
lar opening. Photographic Journal.

HE RELATES HIS EXPERIENCE AND

Bis Flano and poverty Problem A Parrot
That Was Cheap at Any Price A Seen
In TJpper Tandom An Appeal For
Coartesr to the Assessor.
When by telling the truth an evil is
perpetrated, then it is wrong to tell tho
truth. . I suppose that is the reason so
many people are doing good by telling
falsehoods to personal property assess
ors. , The writer is a deputy assessor in
the west town, and at present ho is com
piling a book that is full of names and
figures. Tho names aro all right, but
the man who said "figures can't lie"
never assessed personal property.
Thero are about 50 of us assessors,
who form in a line at 9 a. m., move up
to a window in Assessor Jacob M.
Horn's west town office, Haymarket
Theater building, and get our books and
blank schedules. These calfskin covered
books contain a little map of some par
ticular district in the great West Side.
We movo out to these districts and go
to work. The town clerk registers our
oaths to .faithfully perform the duties
of an assessor," and the people we as
sess do the rest of the swearing. That
isn't alL Sometimes they set tho dog
on ns and otherwise treat us as though
we were book agents. That makes the
assessor warm, and then ho interviews
a neighbor regarding property that is
not accessible. And tho consequence is
people who "bounced" the assessor will
find a valuation placed upon tlieir prop
erty that will cause tht'in to think there
is nothing certain but death and taxes.
Occasionally we find poverty and a pi
ano together. The piano is assessable,
and the poverty isn't If you assess tho
piano, you increase the poverty, and
there you are.
These incongruities come up, and un
less you have the wisdom of a board of
equalization there is trouble. Speaking
about this board, I have an idea that
they will just about double the poor as
sessors ' figures when they get down to
work. A keen assessor can locate every
piano in his district If he doesn't hear
it, everybody else in the neighborhood
has, and they tell him about it I asked
a real nice looking lady the other day if
sho had a piano, and she said "No."
"Why, yes, mamma, we have," said
her littlo girl
Tho mother said: "Go into the house
this minute, you naughty girL How
dare yon !' And then the child knew 6ho
had done something wrong. She had
told the truth to a nasty, mean assessor.
I went into a littlo candy store on the
8a 1110 street. To tho woman behind the
counter I stated iny business.
She replied: "I am a poor widow. My
God, what will I do?" Tears flowed
down her cheeks, and she sobbed as
though her heart would break. The as
sessor felt sj niean that he sneaked out
without asking her name.
Even tho parrots are down on assess
ors. A Lafliu street bird told tho as
sessor to go to any number of times
while he was conducting the inquisito
rial ceremony. 1
"That bird speaks very plainly," said
"Just hear tho dear fellow. He can
say just as plainly as I can. I will
sell him for 15. There's a bargain. "
And the lady meant every word she said.

to the assessor; invite him in, give him

A QUEER ANIMAL.
The Asntrauaa Duckbill Carrie, a Sting
la One Leg.
Australia certainly holds tbo palm
for queer and uncouth animals. Chief
among these is thoduckbill, or ornitho
rhynchus, which Sidney Smith described
as "a kind of mole with webbed feet
and the bill of a duck, which agitated
Sir Joseph Banks and rendered him
miserable from his utter inability to
decide whether it was a bird or a beast "
It was only recently that it was proved
beyond a doubt that this curious animal
lays eggs like a bird, though this had
long been reported by travelers. Now
comes the news that it has a sting on
its hind leg, capable of killing by its
poisonous effocts. Wo quote from The
"For a long timoitwas considered to
bo quite Iiarmlem and destitute of nny
weapon of offense, although tho hind
legs of tho males were armed with a
powerful spur, apparently connected
with a gland. Then the opinion was ad
vanced that this might be a weapon al
lied to the poisonous armory of snakes,
scorpions and bees, all of which possess
a sort of hypodennio poison syringe.
Though ono set of observers asserted
that this was the case, another set denied
it, au so Dr. Stuart determined, if pos
sible, to solve this question. Ho received
two independent accounts, which coin
cided perfectly, and from them ho con
cludes that at certain seasons at all
events, tho secretion is virulently poi
sonous. The mode of attack is not by
scratching, bnt by lateral inward move
ments of tho hind legs. Two cases are
reported in dogs. . One dog was 'stung'
three times, tho symptoms much resem
bling those from bee or hornet poison.
Tho dog was evidently in great pain and
very drowsy, bnt thero were no tremors,
convulsions or staggering. It is worthy
of uoto that a certain immunity seems
obtainable, for tho dog suffered less on
tho second occasion and still less on the
third. Two cases of men being wounded
are reported, in both of which the ani
mate wero irritated, ono by being shot
end handled, the other by being handled
only ; the symptoms were the same as
in the dog. No deaths are reported hi
human1 beings, but four in dogs. "Lit
