A NEEDED 1AW. The New Orleans affair and the killing of strikers in Pennsylvania again sharply call attention to some of the evils which unre stricted immigration has brought upon this country. The necessity of doing something to better the situation was rec ognized by the last congress, which in its closing honrs passed a law absolutely pro hibiting the admission to the United States of all idiots, insane persons or per sons likely to become a public charge, per sons suffering from a loathsome or a dan gerous contagious disease, persons who have been convicted of a felony or other infamous crime ortmisdemeanor, involving moral turpitude polygamists, and also any person whose ticket of passage has been paid with the money of another, or who is assisted by others to come, unless it is affirmatively and satisfac torily shown on special inquiry that such person does not belong to one of the foregoing excluded Glasses, or to the class of contract laborers excluded by the act of February 26, 1885. The act also forbids the assisting or encouraging of foreigners to immigrate by advertisements in foreign countries and puts a stop to the industry of steamship and transportation compa nies which have heretofore done a lively business through agents in soliciting for eigners to come to this country by their lines. They have accepted anybody and everybody that had passage money to pay and often times dumped them helpless and penniless on our shores. Hereafter per sons who are brought here unlawfully will be sent back by the way they came at the charge of the owners of the vessel that brings them. Much is expected from this law. It will do something if strictly enforced, as it should be. TENNESSEE PENSIONS. The legislature of Tennessee; which ad- jonrned last Monday, did something of" which very little notice has been taken outside the State. It made a law granting pensions to all disabled Confederate soldiers, ranging from $8 1-3 to $35 a month, according to the degree of dis ability." An "ex:federal soldier" writes to the Tribune in strong protest against this action. He says anioiig other things: We want enterprising men frota-the North to come and settle among us, and to invest their money in our property and enter prises. Will it encourage them to come when they know that they will be taxed to raise money to pay pensions to Confeder ate soldiers? Tennessee has a bonded in debtedness of between $16,000,000 and $17,000,000, upon which she is paying a semi-annual interest of from3 to 0 per cent. Two years ago she borrowed from her banks $460,000 at a heavy rate of interest to meet her past due interest. This has been only par tially repaid. A resolution passed the legislature the other day authorizing the State's financial agents to go to the banks again and to borrow money to meet the accrued interest on State bonds. This Confederate pension law ffill increase the current expenses of this State at least $100,000 per annum. There never was a time in the history of Tennessee when such legislation could have been more hurtful and unfortunate. I do not believe that any considerable nnmber of Confed erate soldiers were either asking or expect ing tbe passage of such a law. Thousands of capitalists have already come to our State, and thousands more are investigat ing our endless resources with a view to coming. This will cast a cloud over Ten nessee's prospects. It must have a tend ency to discourage loyal men who contem plate coming here with their money. It is evident that the legislature of Ten nessee might hav9 done a wiser, if not a more generous thing. Tennessee furnish ed 32,000 men for the Union army, and it is said that the survivors who live in the State do not relish being taxed to pay pen sions to Confederate veterans. EDITORIAL NOTES. The readers of Woman have decided af firmatively the question, "Is a hnsband worth having?" The question nsed to be, Can I get a hnsband? Woman excels in whatever she under takes. Eveline JNeil, an .English woman, has succeeded in marrying forty-three men by advertising herself as a wealthy widow. Her plan was to skip with the wedding gifts as soon as might be after the ceremony. People do not always die when they are told to. Forty-five years ago, when How ard Crosby was graduated from the Uni versity of the City of New York, he was assured by physicians that he could not live a year, as one of his lungs was des troyed and he would soon yield to con sumption. Yet he was one of the most vigorous and ringing of speakers. An ingenious Frenchman has discovered a process of recovering the tin contained in the wash waters of silk which have been weighted, and he has accordingly received from the French Society for the Encourage ment of National Industry the prize allot ted for the utilization of residual sub stances. It is estimated that Lyons alone will effect by it an annual economy of $60,000. The various German chambers of com merce are about to make a very interesting experiment, with the idea of extending Germany's industrial resources in foreign countries. A fund has been raised, and Beveral young men will be sent to different large cities on the Continent and in Eng land to open up new fields for German products. Among the cities selected for the experiment in England are Manches ter, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle and Swansea. A quarter of a century since the average doctor was almost everything. He was physician, surgeon, oculist and now and again in case of emergency would pull a tooth. We are taught to believe that specialism in medicine is a very modern invention. But read this from so old a writer as Herodotus: "The Egyptians have among them a great multitude of physicians. But each man is a physician of one part of the body only, for one heal eth diseases of the eyes and another dis eases of the head and a third diseases of the teeth." Verily, there is nothing new nnder the sun. The Sheffield cutlery trade is falling off considerably. This is said to be on account of a large deorease in the American trade, in consequence of the McKlnley tariff, j Before its passage the British free trade journals were very solicitous about the welfare of Uncle Sam and could not em- I phasize sufficiently the warning that Amer ican industries would be seriously affected when the new tariff went into operation. I Its operation Is now being felt, but.signifl- : cantly enough, we are experiencing none of i those evil effects to our industries which the. English economical prophet scented from afar. On the contrary, it is the Eng lish industries which are suffering. The increase in coal production in the States west of the Mississippi daring the last decade has been more than threefold. according to a late census bulletin, and the decrease in the standard prioe of a ton at the month of the mines for this period is about 25 per cent. In many of these States the forests are scattering, but the coal belt is so extensive that Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Texas, Arkansas and the Indian territory are able to supply, to an unlimited extent, all the fuel which may be required for scientific. industrial and domestic purposes. As these States become better settled the coal industry will keep pace with the growth of population, and the mining of coal will be henceforth one of the largest and most remunerative opportunities of the wage- earning classes in that part of the conntry. What one vote can amount to is thus told in Kate Field's Washington: A sin gle ballot in Indiana, cast at the eleventh hour by a drunkard, saved a legislature to the Democrats, and insured the choice of Edward C. Hannegan for United States senator. Mr. Hannegan voted in the sen ate, at a oritical juncture, for the annexa tion of Texas; this annexation brought on the Mexican war; the Mexican war made General Taylor president, and his death put Millard Fillmore into the executive chair; Fillmore signed the fugitive slave law, which, though aimed at the destruc tion of the abolition movement, furnished the greatest incentive possible for its activity, and brought about the crisis of 1860; the issue of this crisis was the civil war; every schoolboy knows what has fol lowed the war. Oh, yes, my stay-at-home indifferent brother, your single vote is of consequence! THE FLEETING SHOW, Some of Its Facts and Fancies. rwritten for the Journal and Cocrisb. THE WORD "ISVENTRKSS" OBSOLETE. It has been affirmed by some cynical de tractor of woman-kind that her ingenuity is usually expended in inventing excuses. That this statement is not altogether true may be conclusively shown by a visit to the patent office at Washington. The fact as there recorded is that more than three thousand American women have applied for patents upon articles of their own in vention, these applications showing a very wide range of creative talent, as they com prise almost everything from a submarine telescope and a smoke conveyer for loco motives to dish-washers and musquito traps. The faxst patent issued to a woman was in 1809, before the government postoffice was established, the state of Connecticut granting a patent to Mary Kies for an im proved method ot straw weaving. In 1815 Mary Brush secured a patent for a corset and after four years more another woman gathered up courage enongh to apply for a patent on a new compound of cream of tartar. Three years after Julia Planton'patented an improved foot-stove, and the next year Lucy Burnap contrived a new method of weaving grass. Improve ments wre made in spinning-wheel heads, wheel fellies and moccasins, and patents were granted at the rate of one a year. Then followed a period of six years when women seem to nave been so busy in inventing excuses for detaining their uusbanas at Dome in tne evem:-g,ana devisincr aDDliances for the knees and el bows of boys' garments, that they ceased to clamor for patent rights at least. Until the year 1863, whe the exigencies Of the time called rortn tne creative taient or tne the nation, not more than half a dozen pa tents had been issued to women in any one twelve-month. In that year the number granted was twelve, and the inventions were entirely tor tne use ana comrori or men in camp and on the battlefield, such caps, canteens, amouiances ana lini ments. In 1887. the last year m which a com plete official report was made, the number of women patentees was one hundred and seventy-eight, and in 1890 it is thought by the superintendent of the model room that patents were granted to women at the rate of one in two days. Among the three thousand patents more than one hundred were given for corsets, one New York wo man holdine five, but men, who are sup- nosed to disapprove of these garments, "condemn the wrong and yet the wrong pursue" to the extent of four hundred pat ented corsets and various appliances be longing to the same. Sixteen patents on curlers and crimping pins are credited to women. In 1973 tne bustle oegan to mate itself prominent, and here a Connecticut woman led the line of inventors and se cured the first patent, but again proud man stepped in and, as in the case of the crimping pina, was grantea iour or five times as many patents, and lined his pockets while affecting to scoff at fashion able follies. We are told that there is no sex in ce nius, neither is there in invention, if we may believe Mr. Gill, the experienced su intendent of the model room, who says: "There is no such thing as a feminine mind when you come to invention. While there are so many more inventions of men they are no more masculine eitner in luge nuitv or purpose than those of the women. Men take out three patents to every one of a woman along the line of women's fash ions." The "feminine mind ' theory is completely demolished at the patent office bv models for elevated railroads, coke crashers, steam whistles (!) electric lamps. indicators for use on railroads, hospital beda, invalid chairs, locomotive driving wheels and a street-cleaning apparatus. Patented processes are numerous, among them those for preparing sole leather, dressing; furs and hardeningcopper. The most profitable inventions, accord ing to Mr. Gill, are those made in costumes and clothing; some processes and designs for wall paper making, and for the firing or decorated china. "Something for a woman to wear, something decorative and something artistic are the inventions that seem to have paid the women inventors." Women of taste and creative faculty who wish to make these gifts a source of in come are advised to take note of this and itovern themselves accordingly. Some very simple inventions, each as the paper bae and the wire flour sifter, both of which are credited to women, have been very remunerative. They were just what was needed, and the only wonder is that they had not been contrived long be fare. Though anything but "implements of mischief" though the inflated paper bag may become in the hands of the small boy, an "instrument to plague the sons of men" thb words of Milton apply to them very aptly: The Invention ail admired, and each, how lie To be the inventor missed; so easy it seemed Once found, which yet unround most would have thought Impossible."

A stenographer has been preparing a cat alogue of the books which have been read by a Boston lady, tbe lady herself dictating entirely from memory their titles and au thors and specifying the class of literature to which each volume belonged. The work occupied every afternoon for a week. From the stenographic memoranda a classined list alphabetically arranged was type-written on heavy paper, to be bound according to the owners fancy. ihe completed list comprises over two thousand volumes or poetry, philosophy, faction, history, travel, biography and science. - To this literary salmagundi authors ancient and modern, native and foreign, have contributed Schopenhauer and Mrs. Son th worth, Em erson and Umda, TolBtoi and Artimns Ward, Browning and "The Duchess," with scores of others whose writings may be placed on every degree of the scale between these extremes. Think of one small brain being a store house of all this "concrete wisdom of the wisest,-" to say nothing of the rubbish. One cannot help wondering hew mnch of the contents of these volumes is available for practical use but as the omnivorous reader is said to have a remarkable memory it is probable that her acquaintances find the society of an animated reference dook very convenient and desirable. Far better than a printed catalogue of the books that have helped or hindered us is a "reading diary," in which beside the names of authors and volumes, one can write a brief record of the impression mafia by; each at , the time of reading or some sign" at.l4at( that; would - show its merit as then estimuted. . A . very dainty little diary for this purpose was published some years ago which contained the names of three hundred or more authors with the titles of their best works, every other page being a blank upon which the names of other authors and books might be written. This diary, however, was in tended for fiction only, its motto, fur nished bv James Freeman Clarke, being. "Ihe taste for reading must Degin wuu fiction." It would be an easy and pleasant task to keep, in some neatly bound blank book, a reading diary after one's own plan, classine each work read in its proper di vision of literature, adding date and place, and notes which would serve to fix the impression of its principal ideas npon the mind. The diary would become in time a book of many associations, and might be referred to with interest and advantage, as showing the reader's changing tastes, or progress toward a higher standard, the in creasing enjoyment of that which is best and purest in thought and diction. It would certainly be useful if it merely pre vented deterioration. hilaiiy. MR. IVAKIiltlAN'S JOI KNElIMiS. At Ilaworlh, England Its Descrip tion Tbe Surrounding of tltc Place Tbe Bronte Family. Haworth, England, March 20. To the Editor of the Jocbnal ano Courier: In the entire history of the relation of woman to English literature there cannot be fonnd anything like the same winsome. if somewhat melancholy, interest that will always cling to the irreproachable name, the obscure surroundings and the extraor dinary personality of the author of "Jane Eyre." Because of this, Haworth, though inter eating for little else than onoe having been the home of the Bronte family, is worth going a long way to see. And it is a long and a dreary way one has to come. Perched up here among the bleak hills of the West RidinK of Yorkshire alongside the moors and fells of Lancashire, the place is almost as unknown and inaccessi ble as the grave of Byron at Hucknall Torkard, in Nottinghamshire. If yonr impnlse is to visit Haworth come in the summer only. Then there is at least sunshine. Then fleecy clouds straggle over and between the hills as if shadowy hosts were marshalling behind the horizon. Here and there splatches of color lie against old walls and honse fronts. The heather blushes from the un dnlant green of the moors. And one can then easily imagine bits of Apnlian pasto ral scenery here in the shepherds and their flocks, like cameo reliefs on beds of daz zling emerald, with a perspective of bil lowy lines and misty clouds, and here and there a savage kite or moor-buzzard cir cling above the scene, fierce and endless in its hunger for nnwary heath-poults or grouse. But at any other time, your impressions all the way from Keighley up the little valley of the Worth river, the stream be ing nowhere more than a tiny 'beck or moorland rill, will be dismal ones indeed. This entire Yorkshire district, of which Bradford is the trade metropolis, is given over to the manufacture of worsteds. To the right and left of the little branch of the Midland railway, which follows the stream up the valley past Haworth to Ox enhope, are clusters of deserted olden band-loom mills; rotten weirs; gnmv steam-power mills with their huge, half smoke-hidden chimneys; decaying arches; rows of factory-hand cottages with slat ternly women at the door; gnarled, stunt ed trees springing meagerly from impo verished soil in shadowy gorge and glen; and, in tannest reaches ot prospect, be neath a leaden-colored sky, the grim out lines of barren hills, the hollows between showing farther, dimmer outlines of bleak, bare moors, suggesting the wastes of a mount ftinoua-waved, measureless sea. The tiny Haworth railway station stands in the center of tha horse-shoe shaped val ley head to which yon have come from the north. There could be a no more cheer less sight than that presenting itself in ev ery direction as you alight from yonr rail way carriage. The station-master, the single human in sight, in a sparsely cut, threadbare uniform, trots around shiver ingly for a moment as if feeble, starved and cold; ana then snaps himself np in his little den with a sharp click, as if in flight from the surrounding dreariness. Across the track where there has some times been a little patch of flowers a lone ly, almost featherless, altogether bedrag gled hen pecks at the dead stalks feebly, queruously. This is all of life there is near the station. Over to the left, a long distance away on the level bed of the val ley, are several huge mills. They are prisons In every sense. The black smoke rolls sullenly from their stacks. Bnt no human being is visible. Then there are a half score rows of workmens' houses, tit tie, mean, hard and cramped, hnddled in grimy, denuded spacea, or set on the brae- side in all manner of angles; as though they had set out to run away from the place, and, too feeble to escape, had stuck fast where they now stand. High above this modern Haworth, Browmore stretch es away in interminable swells of savage, treeless hills. These circle around to the south and west, and your eye follows them until it catches a steely-gray line of what at first seems ragged, jagged cubes of rock, cutting m diagonal transverse from the bottom to nearly the top of the bare es carpment of another bolder hillside, ter minating in the loftier, drearier Haworth moor. This half-defined, ragged line of gray is the ancient village of Haworth. Slipping and sliding along the sinuous, clayey path, you reach the lower end of the long, climbing, winding, village street. Everything is of stone the houses, the gutters, the rain-troughs, the gargoyle spouts, and the cobbled way, like an open stoae sewer cut along the hillside to carry off the seepy oozings of the moor-mosses above. There is but the single' street; Main street it is called. Dank, dark dos ses sometimes extend for a house-length to the right and left. The yard-wide pave ments are series of stone stairs and plat forms. Beneath the latter are shadowy shops and living rooms. All stand open; but few inhabitants are to be seen. Those of whom glimpses can be caught are little children, still too young to be ground in the mills, and bowed old crones of women already ground by the mills into voiceless ness and shapelessness. Up, up, np, for a mile yon plod, and at last reach a tiny open space. The houses are set around it closely. Quaint shops and ancient inns crowd it at all sorts of curious angles. This is the head of the village, topograph ically, in habitations and in aristocracy. Not for its attractiveness, but because it seems an outlet to somewhere, you pass into a little court behind the Black Bull Inn. It is a maze of angles and vrynds. Suddenly another tiny open space con fronts you. Here are an old, oblong, two storied stone house, with a few yards of grass-plot at its side: a little stone church, attached to, rather than blended with, a grim Norman tower; a grave-yard clnU tered with crumbling stones; the whole covering barely an acre of ground. These were Haworth parsonage, church and church-yard; the earthly, and final, home of the Brontes: and their living eyes ever rested on Haworth moor which rises im mediately above the church-yard like a wall of rounded stone. Here, within the village nest of the moorside eeiie, one may rittinglv pause and recall the history of the Broutea as a family. The father, the Rev. Patrick Bronte, was a son of a county Down, Ire land, farmer, whose real name was Prnn ty. He was born Patrickuias day, 1777, his name being changed to Broute at the suggestion of his benefactor, the Rev. Mr. Tighe, rector of Drumgooland parish, in Down. Fine in physique, handsome and ambitious, he forswore peasant-life, and. much after the manner of the "1'oor Scholar" in Carleton's itathetic tale, gained enough learning at sixteen to teach a small private school; soon became a tutor; en tered St. John's college, Cambridge, in IsOJ: obtained his B. A. degree fonr years later; was ordained to a curacy; and we find him, on his marriage, in 1812, to Ma ria Branwell, a sweet and gentle Cornish maiden of Penzance, the incumbent of the church living at Hartshead, a little village near Huddersfield, abont -twenty mites aenws the moors, to the southeast of Ha worth. Ihey were five years at Harts head. Then Mr. Bronte was transferred to Thornton, another Yorkshire West Ri ding moorland hamlet, "owre the staires," that is, over the stairs, or hills, four miles south of Haworth; the gray old octagonal chapel-tower at Thornton being visible from the heights ot rsrowmoor. jusi over there across the valley. Mr. Bronte was given the living of Haworth in lb"20, and with his tannly toou possesson ot tne old parsonage jnt as you see it to day. He remained until his death in 1S(1, a period of forty-one years, the incumbent of St. Michael and All Angels, this now world- famed church, which with the parsonage, grave-yard and these closeiy-hnddled houses ot stone make up a grim old vil lage picture. It will be yonr tortnne to ue driven from this parsonage door, just as was Miss Thaekery and spoih of English literators in the past; ns was the Rev. 1 r. Theodore F.

With marked contrast to the clerical bmta who has repeatedly declared that the name of Bronte was hateful to him: that it was not his duty "to maintain a show-place for strangers, bnt a house of prayer for the praise of God;" that the memory of this family represented to him merely "a re collection of a predecessor incumbent:" and who has done everything in his little power to destroy the greatest and least vestiges of as noble and tender personali ties and influences aa ever hallowed Eng lish soil: this young man, a poor man be sides, Robinson Brown, of 133 Main street, Haworth, has passed a life of sacrifice and almost personal want to secure these pre cious relics and to generously welcome all strangers who may wish to see them. His home is the only real Bronte shrine in Ha worth. The enrate rules the village with a spiritual rod of iron, and this local au tocracy makes it treason in Haworth to be interested in Bronte relics and memorials. Despite it now and then the old, old folk, and the hnmble workmen of the factories, who secretly adore the writings ot Char lotte and the memory of the noble family, steal in here by these mute bits from the old home, weep over them and steal away again, trembling from fear of discovery and proscription. Tbns the curate main tains "a house of praver for the praise ot God" in the Haworth of to-day. Mr. Brown's collection comprises a few paintings, many drawings and several specimens of needlework, all done by Charlotte. There is a drawing, in sepia, of a revenue cntter becalmed at sea in soft and humid moonlight. The pencil draw ings are numerous. Three of these are remarkably true to nature. Two are of a laughing and a crying child. The other is a river-bridge and mountain scene, full of delicacy and feeling. Her skill in needle work, and what would now be termed art embroidery, was superior. An extraordi nary piece ot this needlework is a study Of a youthful shepherd and chepherdess tend ing a flock of moorland sheep, the faces all being partially laid in with water col ors. The only painting of Charlotte in oil, done during her lifetime, is also here. . There are several of her letters in her wonderfully minute and perfect chirogra phy; and one was particularly interesting to me becanse written to the "old Sasev ' I had seen. It is dated Haworth, June 13, 1848. Snsey had left Haworth for a little stay at York. Miss Broute writes: I was afraid that at lirst you would n- -t fori very comfortable anions stranewt.; i-r- n w ho have lived most f their lite in a quitn l.tale plaoe like llAworth fin-l a r diflxy-noe bt they fro t. a fnrfth netrliUori.-l a nl ftil'-r I ! ot-iety of axraof-crs.

There is also in the collection a spot bed pnut dress worn bv the novelist; ber shawl and brooch, aud a lock of ber hair given by her hnsband, Mr. Nicholla, to Martha Brown. Several old reviews con taining notices of the Bronte family and their work, which were in her pffession, are here. One. the Ouarterlv Review for December, 148, hurt her deeply. Its re view of "Jane Evre" refers to the author having "horrid taste." Two of the most interesting articles to be seen are a water-color sketch by the novelist's own hand representing "her favorite dog, Floss," chasing a grouse over a reach of drear moorland, and a prieltes autograph copy of "Jane Eyre," the Utter another gift to the beloved nurse, Martha Brown. A basketwork doll's cradle, belonging to Charlotte, is here all but the rockers. Those have been chipped off and given as mementoes to pilgrims Ironi onr own country. There are also a email wooden trinket-box containing cloak and shoe buckle, with one or two pieces of ribbon from the novelist's bonnet; several alabas ter vases from her room: and a silk patch work counterpane, one amoug countless proofs of the dogged patienc" and uncon querable pluck of tne half-blind author ess. Bnt a single article remains as a re minder of the sad career and miserable ending of Patrick Branwell Bronte, the brilliant and unfortunate, brother. The oddest character that perhaps ever lived in Haworth was "old Bill Brown," the crabbed Haworth sexton of the Prontes' time. He was almost immortalized by the Haworth poet, Harkaker, whose last stan za upon him runs in this wise: But think ye. old rase hardened blade, Knipht of the mattock and the siade Some lustier brother of the trade. Perhaps ere long. May lijr you where you've thousands laid, Nor think it wrong' and the capital oil painting of this canny old character, who reminds one forcibly of the old wretch who still officiates at "Scotch marriages,"' at Oietua trreen, was the work of this misdirected and self-destroying genius. Grim, gaunt, gray Haworth! Perfect as were the lives thy sunless ways once knew: matchless as were the creations hewn ont of thy heart of stone: dreary as the skies above thy dank old walls is tby hard, stern face in all its moods to men.
