What a JouhnaIj reporter saw of
the mop, gave the Impression that it
is a very complete work. Including
uiinuto details. As an incidental
proof of the growth of Salem, it
may bo mentioned tltat it fakes ten
sheets to make the map, that in 1884
required only four.

Stati: Faiii G hounds, Sept,
Having my attcutlon called to an
article appearing in this morning's
Dally Statesman that reflects upon
the managers of the Southern Paciflc
Railroad Company unjustly, I deem
it but just to state that said railroad
company should bo exonerated, aud
I know there is no truth In the
charge that said company lias dis
criminated against any one who may
want to come over their lino of road
to the Oregon state fair. On tho
contrary, they have instructed their
local ucKcts agents to sell excursion
tickets to all persons who may desire
to attend said fair at a rate fttllv as
reasonable as the rates specified in
the article referred to. lalso would
say that tho reference made in tho
article to the race meeting just closed
and tho Mechanics' fair of Portland
is unjust and uncalled for. It is
regreted that said article should have
appeared. J. T. APPERSON.

Less than formerly, but still too
seriously, young women contemplate
the destiny of an old maid. They
look toward the time when they
may We so described as toward a
lengthening period of shame and
reproach. They dread passing from
the sunny plane of expectant girl
hood into tho shadow of settled fate
in single life, as though they were
to step over the lino that separates
honorublo womanhood from a pecu
liar mlsfortuue that only women can
ttuiTer. Rather than endure this
supposed humiliation, a woman who
had lived a patient, loving, service
able, unwedded lifo, committed sui
cide recently. She had not the
courage to be an old maid, she said.
There Is something pitiful In this
falso notion, this subtle self pride,
surviving the semi-civilized era
when it was thought that tho chief
end of woman was marriage. The
world is moving so rapidly away
from the old theories, customs, and
prejudices that once held women in
social bondage that it seems extra
ordinary that stupid conceit of the
past should make wretched the lives
of, good, earnest, and free women to
day. Ono time it was the highest
ambition of women in gonerol to
become wives. Their whole youth
ful training and odueatlon was
shaped to that finality. Not to se
cure a husband was evidence of a
flokle nature or an unattraetivechar
aeter, and no woman of spirit oared
tohuvoit said that she could not
win a husband. But moral mid in
tellectual vWwa have broadened so
greatly since the time this vicious
prejudice made stares ami puppets
and lay figures of women, people of
mind and worth no longer count it
have reached out so variously and
extensively that woman has become
one or the active Instruments of
soolal development, and Is no longer
a passive, dull tool, moroly incident
al to the creative scheme. She has
become niUtress of herself, is left
freo to choose without criticism, cen
sure, or reproach whatever respect
able path she shall tread In the plan
of life. From a household ornn-
mont or domestic drudge she has ex
panded Into a mental, moral, and
spiritual force ; has become an agent
of art, science, and education, as
well as a mistress of tho graces, and
is respected for the forces, powers,
and qualities within her, tho truo
womanhood that is made up of
mind as well as matter and Is in
spired by genius as well as tempered
The world has learned that wom
en can think as well as love ; that
they can achieve as well as serve;
that they are imbued with divine
attributes as well as blessed with
material charms; and in learning
this the world has, however reluc
tantly, struck from womanhood the
bonds custom welded upon her in
tho days when tho warrior savage
found tho delicate companion of his
peace only fit to carry and servo in
tho business of life, which ho
thought to be only fighting. Wom
en formerly married to secure pro
tectors; under the now dispensation
tlioy can protect themselves. Form
erly woman was content to admire
tho exploits, bravery, and achieve
ments of men ; now sho knows that
she has the ability, tho talent, tho
genius, and the physical energy to
enter boldly Into the lists and chal
lenge the mind, the soul, the heart
of man in independent action.
Medicine has opened its sacred ar
canum to her, law has yielded to
her irresistlblo demands, the arts
have crowned hor their worthy vo
tress and priestess ; the pulpit Itself
has bade her welcome, and educa
tion has hailed her as ono of its
ablest and most enthusiastic allies.
She has brushed away gloriousfy
tho old scorn that bound her sub
ordinate in tho household of man.
She stands erect on the high places
witli man, add may, in devotion to a
high calling, put away the Impedi
ments of marriage, and go singly
with honor through tho life shcJ
brightens and ennobles.
Marrlago Is no longer her inevit
able end. Her destiny has made
marrjago a'uhblec, notan obligation,
and tho old contemptuous epithet Is
as empty of meaning now as tho
gibes of tho fool against tho teach
ings of tho wise. Old maids have
left names that will shine in history
like stars in tho firmament. If
there bo work to do, and if it be
done worthily, tho world' no longer
cares whether it bo performed by
matron or spinster, by benedict or
bachelor. Tho woman who makes
tho liest use of her talents, who
serves faithfully in the ways of life
to which her conditions constrain or
urge her, needs no other courage
than good conscience to smile when
she Is called an old maid. Night
ingale, Bonheur, Cushman, Wlllard,
are names borne by old maids, but
who moro honored, more gratefully
remembered than they ? Exchange,
