Timidity in woman i her on great draw

Into many kind of work, and naturally are
loo timid to bold their services as high as
men do tbeir. But when we can get all wo-

must all work, than there will be a wonder

much if our girls were all taught industry
and forced to practice it, whether it were
necessary from a money standpoint or not,

say if our daughter possessed pure, unselfish

Under the bead "What it An Baiter

There nevtr has been a stroni newspaper
printed in this country or any other,
which lias nol made a great deal of its
established fame and power bv standing
in the minority and fighting some great
battle for a living principle which the
editor had too much consciei c to aban
don. Yet popular criticism of newspapers
falls generally against the t aper which
stands for ideas, for what it believes to
be correct things, for wha it believes
ought to be done, ralht r tlian against
the paper that has no higher motive in
journalism than to find w iich Is the
popular side aud go with it. The pa
pers that do stand up, thit are not
ashamed of being in the miaorlty when
conscience and duty demand it, that are
willing to put their own proferity into
peril for principle if need ie. that are
willing to sink and be unpopi.lar and go
down if that shall come, rattier than to
surrender in cowardice and selfishness,
these are the papers that in n country or
state, with pride in itself and loyalty to
principle, should weather the storm, and
be called the really faithful stewards of
the people and the times.
