Driftwood Pete's Streak of Luck.
While splitting wood near his boat
house at the foot of Loughborougb
avenue, yesterday afternoon, "Drift
wood Pete" made a lucky strike of the
ax, which put him in possession of
nearly $100 in gold. He was pound
ing away at the hollow log, when the
ax cut through . and struck some
metallic substance, which proved to
be an iron pot tight sea!ed. With
eager haste he broke the top, and to
his delight gold coin came rolling out.
Upon counting the coins they
amounted to $10). The pot had been
incased in the log apparently for a
great number of years, and it is
thought to have been hidden in the
tree during the war. Where the tree
came from will proba)ly never be
known. It had been felled szmewhere
up the river, and drifted along with
the current to yield its treasure to

has earned a livelihood all his life by
catching drifting wood and other i
floating articles on the Mississippi
River during the summer months. It
was seven months ago that he caught
the log which contained the pot of
gold, and it has lain near his cabin
ever since, until yesterday, when he
started to split it up for firewood.

M3ost Confirmel of Woman Ilater.a.
Probably the most confirmel miso
gynist who ever lived was a wealthy
old bachelor who has just died in
Vieama. After his death a bundle of
documents was discovered among his
belongings, labeledi: "Attempts made
by my family to put me under the
yoke of matrimony." In this packet
were sixty-two letters, the dates rang
ing from 1815 to 1893, a suiicient
proof of the tenacity of his relations.
So afraid was this strange man of even
sitting near a woman that whenever
he went to the theatre he booked
three seats, in order that ho might
have one on either side of him empty.

foul-smelling pipe. to keep away in

he said: "I beg that my executors

of things, I direct that they pur,!hase

The Lae of Blood.
Every polar expedition and whaling
'essel. which visits the Baffin Bay
region puts in at Yaureka Bank, so as
to allow explorers and seamen to visit
the celebrated Lake of Blood. Of it
the author of "My Summer in the
North" says: "It is a lake of consid
erable extent, lying only a few feet
above the level of the sea, and appears
of a deep dark blood red. Careful ex
amination proved, however, that the
-water itself was as pure and clear as
possible; the re.l effect being due to
the fact that the bottom and sides of
the lake, as well as the few stones
which were scattered about in it, were
coated. most perfectly with the red
snow plant. In some places, where the
water .bhad evaporated, the withered
red plants on the soil and rocks
looked exactly like dried spots of

Genesis ii., 23. y<
God, who can make no mistake, made man I
and woman for a specifne work and to move at
in particular spheres-man to be regnant W
in his realm; woman to be dominant in here. +
The boundary line between Italy and Switz- rc
erland, between England and Scotland, Is
not more thoroughly marked than this dis- 10
tinction between the empire masculine and DI
the empire feminine. So entirely dissimilar W
are the fields to which God called them that
you can no more compare them than you can
oxygen and hydrogen, water and grass,
trees and stars. All this talk about the su- n(
periority of one sex to the other se1 is an th
everlasting waste of ink and speech. A jew- fe
ek'r may have a scale so delicate that he can 01
weigh the dust of diamonds, but where are a
the scales so delicate that you can weigh in te
them affection against affection, sentiment w
against sentiment, thought against thought,
soul against soul, a man's world against a
woman's world? You come out with your
stereotyped remark that man is superior to te
woman in intellect, and then I open on my w
desk the swarthy, iron typed, thunderbolted tr
writings of Harriet Martineau and Elizabeth bf
Browning and George Eliot. You come on W
with yourstereotyped remark about woman's a
superiority to man in the item of affection, tI
but I ask you where was there more capa- m
city to love than in John, the disciple. and al
Matthew Simpson, the bishop. and Henry sl
artyn. the missionary?
The heart of those men were so large that P!
after you had rolled into it two hemispheres di
there was room stil left to marshal the hosts al
of heaven and set up the throne of the eter- a'
nal Jehovah. I deny to man the throne In- re
telletual: I deny to woman the throne af- U
fectional. No human phraseology will ever tl
defilne the spheres. whilethere Is an intuition of
by which we know when a man is in his li
realm. and when a woman is in her realm.
and when either of them is out of it. No St
bun-ling legislature ought to attempt to tO
make a dofinition ori o say, "This is the line 'a
and that is the line.' My theory is that if a G
woman wants to vote she ought to vote, and N
that if a man wants to embroider and keep b
house he ought to be allowed to embroider g
and keep honse. There are masculine wo
men and there are effeminate men. My ti
theory is that you have no right to interfere bD
with any one's doing anything that is W
righteous. Albany an.1 Wosbington might as 10
well deeres by legisiation how high a brown m
thrasner should flv or how deep a trout w
should plunge asto trvto seek out theheight a
and depth of woman's duty. The question T4
of capacity will settle fina-ly the whole ques- w
tion. the whole subject. When a woman is w
prepared to preach. she will preach, and ha
neither conference nor presbytery can hinder V
her. When a woman is prepared to move y
in h Ighest commerciai spheres, she will have
great influence on the exchange, and no u
boards of trade can hinder her. I want wo- ii

I was in New Zealand lazst year just after V
the opportunity of suffrage had been con- B
ferred upon women. The plan worked well. I
Thire had never bleeu such good order at V
the polls, and the righteousness triumphed. I
Men ha-e not made such a wonderful moral V
sucess of the ballot box that they need fear Si
women will corrupt it. In all our cities man '%
has so nearly made the ballot box a failure, cl
suppose we let women try. But there are V
some women, I know, of most undesirable
nature, who wander up and down the coun- a
try-having no homes of their own or for- D
saking their own homes-talkingabout their tl
rights, and we know very well that they t
themseves are fit neither to vote nor keep p
house. Their mission seems merely to hu- s5
miliate the two sexes at the thought of what 3
any one of us might becoine. No one would a
want to live under the lawq that such women t<
would enact or to have cast upon soctety the D
children that such women would raise. But b
I shall show you that the best rights that h
woman can own she already has in her pos- k
session; that her position in this country at tl
this time is not on'e of commiseration, but a
one of congratulation: that the grandeur S
and power of her realm have never yet been il
appreciated: that she sits to-day on a throne tl
so high that all the thrones of earth piled on 8
top of each other would not make for her tl
a footstool. Here is the plat form on which'
she stands. Away down below it are
the ballot bo'x and the congressional assem- s
bage and the legislative hall. Woman t]
always has voted and always will vote. Our tl
great-randfathers thought they were by
thir votes putting Washington into the Pres-- d
idential c'hair, No. His mother, by the 1
principles she taught him, and by the habits I
she inculeated, made him President. It was a
a Christian mother's hand dropping the bal- I
lot when Lord Bacon wrote and Newton I
philosohtized and Alfred the Great governed ~
and Jonathan Edwards thundered of judg
ment to come.
How many men there have been in high t
political station who would have been in
suffieient to stand the test to which their
moral principle was put had it not been for l
a wife's voice that encouratged them to do I
right and a wife's prayer that sounded louder
than the clamor of partisanship? The right I
of suffrage as we men exercise it seems to be
a feeble thin::. You, a Christian man, come
up to the ballot box and you drop your vote, I
Right after you comes a libertine or a sot

fls vote'. wa ni s vore couaerts yours.
But i f in the quietb-f home life a daughter by a
her Christian demeanor, a wife by her in- s<
dustry, a mother by her faithfulness, casts a
vote in the right direction, then nothing can c
resist it, and the influence of that vote will
throb through the eternities. tl
My chief anxiety then is not that woman tl
have other rights accorded her. but that she, r
by the grace of God, rise up to the apprecia-. A
tion of the glorious aights she already pos- d
sesses. First, she has the right to make ,
home happy. That realm no one has ever tl
disputed with her. Men may come home at.
noon or at night, and then tarry a compara- a

brown skin to a white one. Savage
and bloodthirsty is this little crea

can overpower. His chief fool con- t
sists of partridges and rabbits, but
many other small animals are disposed
of in the same way. The pine marten,
a member of the weasel tribe, has a
brown skin and yellow throat. Stone
martens have a bluish brown coat with
white throat. They are larger than
the stoat and more destructive. The
other is the king of weasels. He can
whip anything of his weight in the
world. Re is hunted with hounds in
England, and can give six or seven
dogs all they can do to kill him. Like
