OOES THE RESPONSIBILITY LIE WITH
MEN OR WOMEN?

Hot bed a of Scandal Ent Disappointed
Women Are Worst of All.
Who is responsible for the scsndal, tht
dander that is abroad in the World Man
Mtys it is woman, aDd woman stands with
accusing finger pointed at man. A young
girl came to mo the other day and said,
"I've made a fool of myself!" I politely
tried to look surprised, though I wasn't.
"Yes," 6he continued, "I have; and Fm s
mad with myself that I could bite my
tongue out and rise my head for a football.
Whyr This is why. The other evening
two gentlemen called to see me. One was
a friend I had known from childhood, a
great, splendid, whole hearted fellow that
brings an atmosphere of cbecriness and
perpetual good nature with him. He is
always so courteous, so considerate, so ap
preciative and so complimentary that it is
a pleasure to be in his company.
"The other gentleman was a man of
great intellect, whose desire to meet me
bad filled mo with n sense of elation. I
was walking on air. We t alked of all sorts
of subjects, and I felt that I never had
spent a more delightful evening of its kind
in my life. But dear me jnst before it
close something happened," and the
young girl looked so lugubrious that noth
ing would have surprised me. "You see,"
continued she, "we had talked abont peo
ple and things. At l;ist"the name of a cer
tain woman was mentioned. The person
enjoys considerable prominence. One of
the gentlemen said, 'Do you know her?' 'I
know who she is. 'Did you never meet
her sheis so charming a conversationalist
i am sure you would like her.' 'Yes,' I re
plied, and there must have been something
in my manner which challenged a ques
tion, for immediately it came. 'What do
you know about her? You evidently d'j
not approve ot iioi-f 1
Kow the young tirl has more wit than
discretion and she replied, "Well, if you
tntist know, I've heard she was 'shady,'
Vid some one oiice took the trouble to
jrarn us girls not to be seen talking in
the streets, to her, or to haVe anything to
3o with her." Both the gentlemen looked
Shocked. "Why," said the man of intel
lect, "I have visited her many a time, and
I have never seen anything in her behavior
that could be considered the least out of
Then the young girl forgot she was talk
ing to men, not that she wished to discuss
nndebatable subjects, but she forgot, what
is always said when one woman fails to
agree with a man in his high estimate of
another woman. So in the heat of the ar
gument she exclaimed: "Well, all I know
athat some of her associates have been
Jropped by society, and it won't do for
young ladies to attempt to go counter to
the dictum of society leaders. It may lie
.-ery sweet and lovely and nil that, but if a
jirl does ntteir-i't to do so she herself suf
fers wiihoiit beinjj able to do 0113 thing to
ward rehabilitating tbe 'shady' person ia
the garmentof respectability." Then both
the gentlemen looked p:;!: .! v."il as

Inquiries. "Win-redo you think scandal
originates!1'' 1 asked u bviht society wom
an, young in years, but 1;1 i: worldly wis
dom. "Where? With women," she re
plied unhesitatingly, and rlu-n nddt-d, "But
let me modify that. WhhtiK- iuemory of
all I have heard in my life, ami the knowl
edge that it generally could be traced tc
the afternoon gossip of a men's club, I
must take that back. A men's club is the
very hotbed of scandal. Those fellows, rdd
and young, want to be thought irresistible
or omniscient; they can't deny themselves
the pleasure of being thought successful
where others have failed. By a smirk
when a woman's name is mentioned; by u
significant look, a shrug of the shoulders,
even a twirl of one side of a mustache, the
insinuation is made to say nothing of the
open discussion of a woman's charms, and
the speculations ns to her being able to
meet the requirements of a Crrsar's wife.
"I don't mean to say that a perfectly
pure, good woman, whose conduct has al
ways been above reproach, will become the
prey of their conversation, although such
cases have happened. But you know tr ere
are hosts of women and young girls who
will do imprudent things. Many of them
are women now in a stratum of society not
where they belong by birth or education.
They don't know how to behave. They
are not thoroughbreds, you see. They
foolishly take pleasure in defying public
opinion. They don't mind being talked
about. They boast of their escapades, and
yet they do have lots of friends, sweet girl
friends, who absolutely refuse to believe
that 'dear is aught but so impru
dent, and some man comes home from the
club some father, brother or hnsbond
and warns the women of his family not to
be seen with 'So-and-so' any more; that
her name has been mentioned in the clnb.
Oh, my dear," continued the society
woman, "the shores of clubdom are strewn
with wrecks of reputations!
"On tbe other hand, the worst detractors
of women are married women every time.
You take a woman whose own career has
been a failure. She is always on the look
out for improper behavior among yonnger
and more attractive women. She cannot
forgive them for receiving what she no
longer can hold the admiration of men.
When you find such women ia hotels and
boarding houses, they are to be dreaded.
They make wild endeavors to hold their
own with the younger women; they fail;
they are bitter; they devote themselves to
lying in wait for fresh game all the time;
their grip i -weakening, but they clutch all
the same. Oh, my dear, if you ask me
how scan-iai originates, I must go back to
my first answer and say with women, with
fagged ont, jaded, disappointed passee
women. A young matron, secure in her
position in society, happy in her husband's
love, and surrounded by her children, is
too sweetly selfish, too wrapped np in her
own' happiness to be envious or jealous.
She is not the detractor of her sex." San

Draw near, draw nenr and praise him,
This Kini; alt kfng3 above!
Thy love alone repays bim.
Whose dearect nnme ia Love.
Draw near, draw near and bices him.
If life be clad and free.
With gratcf nl hearts confess hin.
Who cave that life to thee.
Draw near, draw near unto him.
If sorrow bow thee down.
None, borrowing, vainly sue him
He hath worn Sorrow's crown.
Draw near, draw near with weeping,
O bruised and mourning heart!
Commend thee to his keeping-.
Whose wandering child thou art.
Draw near, draw near imploring.
If stained with guilt and sin.
Be. pitying and restoring.
Shall heal thy wounds within;
Draw near, draw near his altar.
Though faith itself be fled;
Deem'st thou his love can falter.
Though thine be cold and dead?
Brother, or friend, or stranger,
O child of God! draw near;
Whate'cr thy need, thy danger.
Behold a refuge here!
Draw near, kneel low before him.
Lift, lift thy heart above.
And reverently adore him
Thy God, whose name is Love!

Real Sea Serpents.
The 6eas from Madagascar to Panama
and from Japan to New Zealand are thick
ly infested with marine snakes. Dr. Stein
eger, the reptilian expert of the Smith
sonian institution, says they are among
the most poisonous of all known serpents,
their venom being no less deadly than that
of the cobra and rattlesnake. Further
more, they are very fierce and aggressive,
and will commonly attack human beings
if they get a chance. They do not frequent
the shallows unless possibly for breeding,
but live in the open ocean. When full
grown they are from six to eight feet long.
Fishermen in the waters where they are
found are greatly afraid of them. Their
bodies are flat and the inside of them is
almost wholly filkd by the lungs, which
ore fPtffrge in order that they may bo en
abled to stay beneath the surface for a
long time witnont coming up to breathe.
They have eyes modified for seeing in the
water, so that when they are taken out of
their native element they seem blinded
and strike wildly. Their fangs, like those
of the cobra, are always erect. Chicago
Bats anil Mice anil Large Animals.
IIow many people are there who know
that elephants, rhinoceroses and other
large thjek. skinned animals have formid
able, enemies in rats end mice? These
small, rascally rodents have found that
the feet of the elephant are excellent eat
ing, and have no hesitation in gnawing at
them when the animal lies down, which,
owing to its confined condition, is not very
well able to defend itself against its puny
enemies. To protect these vast creatures
it is found necessary in most menageries to
keep terriers about the cages. These little
fellows very soon dispose of the pachy
derm's tiny adversaries. It was recently
discovered in a well known menagerie
that the mice and rats had been very busy
with the hide of a rhinoceros. A Scotch
terrier, Fanny, was put into the cage of
the huge beast, and in the first night she
I had killed no fewer than twenty-seven
j rats. In a few days there were no rats left
t to nibble the hide of the poor rhinoceros.
Abont Arrican Snakes.
The African cobra is regarded somewhat
reverently by tbe natives of that country,
who once a year kill a cobra de capello and
hang its skin to the branch of a tree, tail
downward. Then all the children born
during the last year are brought out and
made to touch the skin. This the parents
think puts them under the serpent's pro
tection. The cobra de capello divides with
the horned viper of Africa the question
able honor of being the "worm of the Nile,"
to whose venomous tooth Cleopatra's death
The Kaffirs use the venom of this snake's
cousin the puff adder to poison their ar
rows, and when they have any small quan
tity left they swallow it, having a theory
that it will protect them from the bad ef
ecta of future bites. The snake tribe of
tbe Punjab say that the bites of snakes do
not hurt them, and if they find a dead ser
pent they dress it in clothes and give it a
superb funeral. St. Nicholas.

Castoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
