In Germany freedom belongs to those
only who are able to fulfill all their duties
toward the commonwealth, who are fit to
bear the burden of freedom. The prime
duty is to defend, sword in hand, the native
soil. Whoever, man or woman, was not
able to do that, had no claim to the exer
cise of power in the community, to per
sonal independence, no civil rights, not
even the right of administering a private
fortune. The child, the invalid, the old
man, were temporarily deprived of these
rights; women were excluded from them
With regard to the girlhood of Germany,
a change was brought about at the end of
the Fifth century. The right of the Ger
man girl to own property dates from that
time. The administration of her fortune,
however, was left to a guardian. She was
partially free, and not until the Thirteenth
century did she really enter into the inde
pendent possession of her fortune, did she
become a legal person, not indeed accord
ing to public, but to private right, and so
she has remained to the present day.
uniy in so far as the legal position of
the married woman must exercise a moral
influence on the life of the unmarried is it
necessary to say a word of the legal foun
dation of marriage in Germany. It rests
entirely on the view of the superiority of
man, of the subordination of woman.
Even the notion that she is bought by her
husband survives, iu however slight a
form, in the ceremony of betrothal. Her
husband is her master, her guardian, her
natural supporter; above all, he is her edu
cator. She shares his rank, his name, his
dignities, his fortune, but without him she
cannot administer her own. "In the do
main of law she remains a subject," Sohm
concludes, "and if she reigns at all, it must
be by the free will cf man."
In a country like Germany, where, in all
mattera connected nth moral and intel
lectual IL'p the lla'ss of tradition have
never bta severed, the present is ex
plainsd by the past. Disdainful 6ilence is
the mildest form of criticism opponents
will offer whenever on the platform or from
the professional chair the attempt is made
to plead in favor of women's political
rights, says the English contemporary from
which we quote.

1839. He served four yeas? in the Confed
erate army and was ten months a prisoner
at Camp Morton, Indiana. At the close of
the war he located in Choctaw coanty, Ala.,
developed a rude eloquence and began to
preach a new gospel, gaining in the course
of time a hundred or more followers.
At first they were noncombatants, and
were only laughed at, for if one was slap
ped he obediently turned the other cheek.
A little later they got new light and pro
ceeded to resist evil with fearful energy.
The Simses refused to pay taxes, and thus
came into conflict with the local authori
ties. Finally a mob drove them out of the
county, but they soon returned and lived
a few years in comparative peace. Bob
then began to manufacture "moonshine

"Good Wine "Wants No Bush."
A sign common to the licensed victualer
was the "Ivy Bush" or "Bush;" hence the
maxim "Good wine needs no bush," as
houses where good and wholesome bever
ages could be obtained needed no bush or
sign. A writer in 1603 says, "Spied a bush
at end of pole, the antient badge of an ale
house." A further quotation will show
the generality of this sign in "Good Xewcs
and Bad Xewes." The host says:
I rather will take down my bush and sign
Than lire by means of riotous expense.
Publicans were not the only users of this
emblem, but all persons displayed it on
articles for sale: hence the flxinc of a besom
or birch broom at the masthead of a vessel
on purchase. In Harris' "Drunkard's
Cup" we meet with the following:
"If a house be not worth an ivie bush,
let him have his tooles about him, nut
megs, rosemary, tobacco, and other appur
tenances, and he knows enough of puddle
ale to make a cup of wine."
A wisp of straw was once the sign of an
alehouse in Scotland and parts of Eng
land. In Staffordshire and Bucks, within
the last fifty years, a bush was customarily
nung at an alehouse door, or, as they are
termed, "mug houses" in the former, and
"jerry houses" in the latter. Prior to that
period, beer shops at provincial fairs and
wakes displayed a green bunch, or branch,
over the door.
two or three others, released him, mortal
ly wounding his guard, one Dalbrugh,and
killing Dr. A. B. Pugh, who had stopped,
to chat awhile with Bob. In less time
than it takes to tell it, the citizens were on
hand and with arms, for the rescue took
place early in the evening. Bob Sims got
away, but Bailey was killed. A rapid ex
change of shots resulted in tho death of a
negro and the wounding of several citi
zens. Jim Sims was the last to mount his
horse and get out of town, and as he rode
up to the others Neil Sims, mistaking him
for a pursuing citizen, fired and gave him
a fatal wound. This balanced the losses
not counting the negrt) two white men
killed on each side. Jim, however, might
have lived, but the citizens were so enraged
that they took him into the woods and
hanged him. A mob had already warned
the Simsites to leave, and the whole sect
twenty-six families joined In a mad flight
into Alississippi. In a few hours the daugh
ters of Bob Siras drove in with an oxcart
and took the bodies of Jim and Bailev
home for bunaL They next appealed to
Governor Jones, and he directed the county
officials to protect the Simsites in return
ing to their homes.
Take it all in all it's an extremely queer
case. Seven years ago a mob decided to
lynch Bob Sims in the belief that he was
circulating counterfeit money, and had
him under the proper tree, with the rope
around his neck, but they made the mis
take of letting him talk first. In ten min
utes he had the whole crowd awed, if not
frightened. Ho said he was prepared to
die, but if hanged his spirit would haunt
every one of them, and he portrayed the
horrors of the "haunt" with such moving
eloquence that the men who held the rope
dropped it and fled, and the others soon
followed. A few years ago Bob was a poor
man. Now he is rich, and his neighbors
think counterfeit money did it. His fam
ily does all the work on a little paper he
issues called The Veil Is Rent. Besides
the son who was killed he has four daugh
ters, all smart and two of them very pretty

FIno Feathers Make tho Bird.
The biggest of all really powerful flying
birds are, I believe, the wandering alba
tross and the South American condor; for
the roc 1 rejwt outright as worthy only of
the most restricted Arabian and nocturnal
ornithology. Seen on the wing, or even
with the wings expanded merely, both
these great existing birds have a most ma
jestic and colossal appearance. But feath
ers in such casea are very deceptive; they
make fine birds our of ery small bodies.
For example, our well known little Eng
lish swift, which looksso imposing in flight
as it passes overhead with pmious poised,
is hardly as big when plucked as a man's
top thumb joint, aud weighs only half
an ounce. So, too, the albatross, though
its expanse of wing is said to exceed that
of any other known bird, amounting some
times to nearly ten feet from tip to tip,
does not average in weight more than fif
teen pounds, which is just exactly the
poulterer's statement for my last family
Christmas turkey. As for the condor,
while he spans from wing to wing soma
eight feet, his length from beak to tail is
only three and a half, and I doubt if he
would pluck into anything corresponding
to his magnificent outer show though I
am bound to admit that I have never per
sonally tried the unpleasant experiment,

Killed by Chloroform.
An English paper declares that the pres
ent year has for some reason been un
usually prolific in deaths from chloro
form. Two were reported during a sin
gle week at British institutions one at
Middlesex hospital and the other at
Liverpool. Tho Manchester infirmary
alone has been the scene of four or five
similar accidents since the beginning of
the year. Juries at coroners' inquests
have in all cases returned formal verdicts
of death by misadventure, which under
the circumstances was all they could do
"Nevertheless," says tho paper, "the im
pression is forced upon laymen who have
read the medical evidence given at these
Inquiries that doctors are very much in
the dark respecting the action of chloro
form upon heart and lungs. It does not
carry us far to say that death resulted
from syncope, for, in one sense or another,
all death is due to syncope. The question
to decide is whether chloroform acts first
upon the heart or upon some other organ.
The Hyderbad commission, which investi
gated the matter with much labor, came
to the conclusion, if we remember rightly,
that the primary effect was not upon the
heart, but upon the respiratory organs, and
if this finding is true, it should be possible,
with appropriate remedies, to prevent fatal
