Laporte. A current newspaper paragraph asserts that the women la Wyoming Territory are protesting, 'kicking high," to quote its ele gant phmeology, against woman suffrage, because they are obliged to perform jury duty and are thu torn from their Laam ard babies. The fact teat women haye besa exempt ficm jary duty in Wyoming sines 2871, zendeis comment unnecessary. The public tchool authorities in I -.v. dlty of Dalthuore have acted rery wisaly in abolish ing the custom of allowing floral presents t.) be made to the graduates. It his fcesn found there, as wonld be found any where else If the matter was investigated, that many o! the best pupils fill to tecure fhwer and are thua apparently rated below some who are rot to high in their c'ams, but whose par ent and friends ar better able to paironizi the firriat. A current news item says: "A New Yorat worcaa bad trouble wilh her 'aler in-law, and a lawauit was the result, in which her husband was the opposing coun tel and conducted the case against her." 'ow this may only baa lie manufacture! by tcme "reliable correspondent" who is op-px-itd to rxen practicing law or to women t7iEE lawsuit?, but if it is true, it's dreii fcl. Nothing worse was ever suggested as a ccctcquence of women voting for xre3ident. Governor and Jcstica of the Feaca. Kcsband and wife arrayed against tch other, the Lome turned into a pandemonium, the hearthstone de3oUte. Have oar "natural protectors' become un catural, or have our male reprB?ntati ver iest their ''per diera" that such things a? Ibis are possible? Tnis is a direct blow at the eanctity of tbe household, at the "one rers" of huibacd acd wife tbat our "heiven oidaited" law raakcis and executors should denounce and foroid. Batter that men sfcculd be denied the right to practice la w, thatwetneu should re Ter more sua orba aued In court, that sisters in law be abolishel, than that our homes te thus rained and ou: fcnabacda turned against us. Mrs. Helen M. Gaogar addressed the ai ncal convention cf the Ltnn County Wo ican Sallrae Aesociation at Cedar Kapids. Ia., on May 2 The annual report of Ihs aatociation werk says: "But little has been done during the past year in the way of public meeting fur the dtscusilon of the subject of extending the elective franchise to woman, but the friends ol the cause in their social relations have zealously worked for a better public senti ment in this xsfard. Its propriety, utility and cecffciity are CaMy being more fully re alized and moie deply felt. The enfran chisement of woman needs only free, fair and full discucaion to command the uaqial ied assent of intelligent persons. Opposi tion to the cause is growing weaker day by diy. New friends are constantly making thm! elves known, and giving us encouraze xcentby word3 of good cheer. A more healthy tcntiment prevails among wonea. A consciousnetsthat they have no right to shirk a lawful power which may be exerted for the promotion of moral order in the com xnunity. is giving them a broader and clearer view of this subject." IntbeNewK'a for May, Mrs. Elizabeth Bo j r: ten Haibert presents a new idea for the consideration of thoughtful, conscientious wemen regarding the temperance question. "Prohibitionists aad moral saas'.oai3!s alike," the says, "have recognized the fact that legislation to ba thoroughly effective meat b based rpon ta moral sentiment of tbe people. We need to make our youog men recognize tbioogh every fiber of the:r being tbat drunkenness is a disgrace. As one means cf creating such a lentimenr, I cm in favor of tbe women of the country in trcdcclnga bill into every Legislature a)k leg tbat persistent drunkards ba disfran chieed. I would h&ve the sentence pissed by the Judge, before whom a man has b2ea tree cht (arrested for the crime of drunken rets), r.ct a line which the already imnovar iatcd wife and starving child must pay, but disfracrhiiement for a term of years, or for life unless tbe criminal reforms. Other criminals no more dangerous to sod ty are disfrancbi?ed. why not thedrunkard? Have not tbe difrachised women of this cccntrr a right to insist that the men who xtase the laws which so yital'y atfect their happiness ihall be sober aad In their right mire's? "Tbe women of th:s country are sutii jien t ly organized to-day tj unite in eaying to the leaden of the ?reat political pirties, 'VTewill not not have drunkards to rate over us and curcnildren. Nominate a drinking man at jcurreiii. ' Osce convince the young men o! our country tbat every door to political prefer runt and toner is to be closed ta the drank ard. and we shall ooa see the beginning of the end." Mr. Haibert'e lait sentence engcests the tiiocgh; that one? coavinca the young men of our country that every chance forooc'.al reccgnitton and for family rerpectaollity is denied to the drunkard, and we woald aes tbe begicnicg of tbe end. This is witatn ths power of women, if they were "educated up to thai point." Whether these suggestion! are practicable Is an cpen question. No means of exertlnj an in fi oence on public sentiment is to beig scrcd, bat it is doubtful whether a dlsfran chitcd dais could through the cost peritat nt and energetic etrjrtaecure the dlafraa chifement cf ten critnnals whoca TOtei are so valuable to a poweifal faction as are the Totes of drunkards to the manufacturers and dealers in Intoxicating liquors.

In the canyons of Colorado, oa the plains of New Mexico and Arizona and on tbe Calfornia coast and mountain peaks, have Professor and Mrs. Lemmon prosecuted their studies and investigations. From their large herbarium at Oakland, Cal., they have brought to the exposition aoat two thou sand botanical specimens illustrating ths flora of the entire Pacific coast. Theas are tbe results of their joint labors and each specimen bears both names. In addition to the botanical eiecimens, ate about seventy rive exquisite water color paintings of Cali fornia wild flowers, the work of Mrs. Lern mo:.

I hone the dav will come whea cot ard manuii labor will fall upon asy wo man whatever, but when all women will for all humanity's sake lead an easy material life to the soul's sustenance.

New Northwest. Effective Philanthropic Work. : Lilian Whiting's Boston Letter. Mrs. Abby Morton Diaz, President of tbe Woman's Educational aad Industrial Union, with the other cmcars and friend?, cele- I brated Vi anniversary, the tenth, if I miitake I not, leet week.

For the eater tainment3 Miss Louisa Alcott has often gan erously assisted, and her "Mrs. Jarley" is considered an unsurpassed bit of amateir impeisonaticn. On tbe occasion of the aa niveresry last week Mrs. Diaz, the Presiddut, made in her addrets an effective diatinction between what she called root work and ear face work in labor for humanity. Of these two forms she eaid: "W se thinaen are oi the opinion that for removing the ills cf he inanity rcot work is mo e efftciifj t ian tur ace work. Si'fice werk baa three aims: to alleviate, to reform, to suppress. Its methods are charities, re formatory crcstdej and penal enactments. It attacks tbe outward results of inward ey il ccnditlocs, strikes at whatever coma up in s'ght. This cuttlde work is bstter than none. The mistake lies in regarding it as the ulti matum, rather than as a temporary re tort to scrva only daring the ci tsbliahnient of the real thing. It is aa act of kindness to provide the impoverished sick with beds and attendants in hospital), bot it is kinder and thriftier to prevent the ne.d of bfds and attendance Sickness and pi pcrism are the results of ignorance or sin in seme quarter.and such conditions remaining, we may go on enlarging our hospitals to the end of tfme, with corresponding increaso of need. The same is trus of all alleviating ex pedients, as well as of reformatory aid penal. Tbe evils contended with pauper ism, drunkene ss, vice, crime -do not exist of therr selves. They are simply the Inward conditions becoming apparent in conduct. These conditions are ignorance, seidshness, undeveloped faculties.! slae ratings of values, lack of eelf-respect and self-restraint. The effective work is to change such conditions by a kind cf education that shall develop the hiebest and best, and thus enable the lndi- vidcal to atand upright of himself, instead of being held in position by charities, re form or penalties. The time for such de velopment is at the easily impressible period of life, and the place is the home, if Ih beme-rcaker, woman, be equal to the situa tion. But for the demands cf sach work, women need the development of thslr own highest and best qualities. And it is in this yery direction of the advancement of woaiso that our Institution is working. Let no on think It a matter of favoring woxen atone lien stand equally affected; not only 01 ao count of the inflnence of woman on charact er la its beginning, but becauea of a general tsnse the sund&rd cf woman in tha com rannity a fret that of maa."

Julia M Tana in Youth's Companion. The Widow of Alexander Hamilton. IMrs. Jessie Benton Fremont, In Wide wa'ie. I knew Mrs. Hamilton, the widow of Alex ander Hamilton, very well In her many visits to Washington quite toward tha close cf ber long, useful, but quiet life. Her portrait is in the same room with one of Hfi.mil ton. When Tallyiand was their guest be asked for this liKenea of Hamilton, and cn his return to Francs bai it cop:ed and sending them the copy, kept the orit ra). After Hamilton's sudden death, this original was returned to the youog wido by tbe Prince, with a letter so feeling tbat jou rub jour ejes after leading the sigca- i ture with such different .character i3 asso ciated. The letter and portrait are among many historical treasures belonging of righ; in this heme of a Hamilton. There ig the portrait of Washington which he bad had paiated as a gift to Hamilton. It is pat up canine atd turns to any light wanted. It waaideepiy interesting to turn its serene, reposing coum Unance toward the quick dark young face of Hamilton, and the quiet high-bred yocng wife es jet untouched by sorrow. Her fac is delicate but fall cf cerveand spirit; its long oval is made mere lonsc from from tbe bair being brushed back over a high cushion, and the slim throat and long pointed bodice add to this effect of slender lfDgtb, The ejes ar6 very dark asd hold the life end eoergv of tbe restrained face. While the high cushioned hair, tbe rich dress and conventional attitude tell of the woman of society, there is something strong in the steady ejes and closed mouth which show a cbaracter of ber own. 6be had not the beauty cf her splendid mother the wife of General Philip Schuyler who, rather than let their crop3 be of use to the advancing English army (advancing on Saratoga) her telf led ber people in firing theai. Cat the high resolute nature was all there when tbe yceng widow found in ber own sorrow aid ber own orphaued children the motive for a life wich should lilt neglect and sorrow from thousands of children. Her "talents" were many; illustrious names and a powerful family, the tenderest sympathy of a whole nation, and her own pitying, loving nature blended with a rare sense of justice all these she dedicated to the care of children. Eer grief over her own children took the fern) of protection of these who wee poor and unfriended as well as orphaned. To Mrs. Hamilton is directly owing the first or phan asylum of New York. On its fiftieth anniversary a memorial service was held in tbe Chcrch of the Epiphany, in Washington, where Mr?. Washington then was for tha winter, and the wort and its greatly extended geed were told over. The seed had baooaie tree with mighty branches. Mrs. Hamilton was feeble and could not sit 'brongh tbe whole servfej, but came ouly for a part alwavs. to the commu nion service, This Sunday ehe cams in lo . ward tbe close. Oar minds and hearts weve ' filled vi Ith tbe gocd works of this gentle lady when she entered a very small, upright lit tle figure in deep black, never altered from tue time her dark hair was first framed in by the widow's cap, until now tbe hair was white as the cap. As she moved slowly for ward supported by her daughtsr, Mrs. Hoi- ley, cne common feeling made the ongregt ticn rise, and remain standing until she was seated in her pew at the front. Mrs. Ham ilton, though recovering marked attention, prefeirtd quiet, and returned but few vislti. Mrs. Hamilton retained her activity to great age. When I first lived on tbe Hudson Fiver, qcite nr ar her toil's homo, it was still fretbly remembered how the old lady woald leave the train at a little way Etation aad climb two fences in hsr short est acrois meadows rather tlan go oa to the town wbere the carriage could meet ber.

The Uartboldi Statue. ; Charles Barnard, in Hb Nichols's.! "In the first place, there had to te a sketch or model. This was a figare of ths status in clay, to give an idea of bow it would look. The public approved of this model, and then the first real study of tbe werk was made, a plaster statne, just one sixteenth the size or tte intended statue. "The next step wes to make another molel just four times as larfe, or one-f.mrth the s'e of tee real statue, inis quarter size model being finished, then came te task of making the full size model In plaster. Bat this bad to be made in sections. For ln stance, the first section would include the bate on which the figure stool, the feet, and tbe hem of the garmsnt. The next section wonld include a circle quite round the lone fiowir g dress, just above the hem. The third lection woald stand above this and show more cf the folds of the dress, and reach part way up to the knee. In like manner the whole figure would be divided into sections. "Tbe quarter-size model was first divided in this way. and then to lay out the full size p'an it was enly necessary to make a plan of each tectlcn four times as large as the sec tion actually was In tbe model. Erery part of the mcdel was covered with niara or dots for guides, and by measuring fron dot to .dot. iccreaalntr the measurement tour timer. and then transferring it to the larger model. an exact copy just four times as large as was meet. J-or each ci mesa large sec tiers, However, mere &ta to b a support of some kind, before tbe piaster could be laid cn. Having marked oa the 11 cor an outline plan of the enlarged section, a weeden frame work was built up insids the plan. Then upon this frame-work plaster was rcughly spread. It eoou resembled, in a rude way, the corresponding section of the quarter-size mcdel, but was four times as large. Then tbe workmen copied in this pile of plaster every feature of the model section, measuring, cgais and again, from dot to dot, correcting by means of plumb lines, and patiently trying and retrying till an exact copy, only In proportions four times aa large, was attained. "Tbe great irregularity cf the drapery cade it necessary to pot three hundred marks on each section, besides twelve hun dred guide-maris, in order to insure aa ex act correspondence in proportion between the enlarged sections of the full size model end tbe sections of the quarter Bize mo3el. Each cf tbc-se marks, rxorscver, had to be measured three times on bath mode's, and efier tbat cerne all the remensarements, to prcvo that not a tingle mistake had been made. "When these sections in plaster had been completed, then came the work of making wocden melds that frhculd bs exact copies, both in eiz9 and modeling, of the plaster. These were all cartf ally made by hand. It was long, tedious and difficult. Each piece was a moid of a part of the statue, exactly fitting every projection, depression and curve cf that portion cf the figure or drapery. Into these wooden rnolda sheets of mstal were laid, and pressed or beaten down till they fitted tbe irregular surfaces of the mo:d. All the repouieo, or himraerei wort, was deno from the back, er ins! Je, of the sheet. If the- mold ia an exact copy o! a part of tte state?, it is eay to tee tbat th? sheet cf metal, when cud to lit it, wi:i, whea taken out end iurncd over, be a copy of that rait of the statue. Thtsesbeeta were of copper, and eif-h wes frcm enc to three yards square. Eich formed a part of tbe brcrze statue, and of course no two were alike. "In this complicated manner, by makia? first a sketch, then a qnarter-si.a model. t aen a full 8J.3 model in Eeclions, taen hundreds of wocden copies, and lastly b7 beating into shape three hundred sheets of copper, the enormous ttatue was finished. These three hundred bent and hammered plates, weigh ing in all eighty-eight tons, form the outside of the statue. They are very thin, and while they fit each other perfectly, it is quite plain that if they were put together in their proper cider they wonld never stand alone. These hammered eheets make the outside of ths statue; but there must ba aUo a skeleton, a bony structure IcsidP, to hold it together. Thrs Is of iron beams.firmly riveted together, and making a support to which the copper shell can te fastened."

Every spring and fall overhaul a'l eld clothing, empty the rag basis and dieoose of the contents and all other rubbish. In tbe spring pack away all heavy clothing. Wrap each article separately with eimphcr in old newsperers to protect the clothicg from moths. In ths fall have the summer cloth ing washed and put away without starching. as starch eats the clothca and turns white goods yellow. HOUSE CLEANING IT.OrEF.. Beginning with the upper story, take each rceru separately, tbat the whole house may not ue in contusion at the same time. Taen, in rae cf sudden illnes3 or anv unforeseen interruption, some of the rooms will be hab itable. Remove all pictures and fancy arti cles, carefully brush and wipe them tree from dnst, and, with a soft, damp cloth, pol ish each article tbat will not be injured by the application of water. Then cover and pnt them away until the room it cleaned. This plan of cleanirg as thoroughly aa possi ble all articles before removing them from theicom avoice cirryiLg dast from ooe place to another. The next thine is to tale the clothing from the closets, bareaiu and warcrobee, clearing each receptacle thor oughly. Remove all the fnrnitura possible frcm tbe io:m, wlpiDg off the dest before uoirgso, end carefully covering what re- maine. Brush the bedding with a small whick brcom before taking it oat of the iocrn Next take up the carpet. A rood plan Is to have the tacks drawn from tbe carpet the cay before, ss it saves time after the clean ing is ctaally bejrun. If In tbe country. have tbe carpets taken out of doors, well teaten, shaken and swept upon both sides. If in the city the CAF.I LT CLl'.AMXG JItiUSr.S DO THE V0l:K VEHY THOROUGHLY and with little expense. Slightly epnntie the bare floor with water and sweep tw.ca. With a light, clean, to't clolh wipe the dust from the waus acd ceiling. Have a backet of warm water, slightly soapy, and with a clean, soft scrubbing-brush go over the paint carefully. Do rot let any water touch the wall paper. Wipe the paint dry with a soft clotb, to give it an even polish, boap used directly cn paint makes it yellow and takes It off. With clean water and scft cloth wash the window panes and polish dry with a chamois skin or a clean, soft linen cloth. Old newspapers are excellent fcr this purpose. Have the floor well scrubbed, and when it is perfectly dry have the carpet laid acd replace the things be longing to the room. Close the room doors and prcceed wilh the next room, and so on until all the apartments in tbe upper story have bten cleaned, f.xt clean tbe entries acd stairways of that floor. It is better to leave the entry and stairway carpets until the whele house has been cleaned, when they can all be put down at once. Take tbe rccms, entries acd stairways of each floor successively, until tbe cellar is reacaed. If ycur house is heated oy a furnace, have all the registers through ths house closed while the cellar is being swept and cleaned of rubbish, as the dust will ascend thromh tbe lines. The cellar should be well white washed, and lime scattered near the walls. MIRELLAS nOCS. When tbe dinine-room and kitchsn ara bsicg cleaned the pantries, dressars and side- beards should be done first. All the kitchen utensils must be cleaned and polished and the range blackened before anything cU9 is cone, it the work la being done in tbe country, wbere stores are used Instead of a furnace, clean cut tbe stoves, blacken, cover and set them aside until the fall cleaning is finished, or until fires are again needed, when they will be ready to put in their proper places. The latter part of May is tae brat time for the spring c.eanln?. The tan cleaning should be dene in October. Lturdette'a Recipe. Miss Pari o a, the ccoking expert, s&ys she "makes kisses by beatirg the whites of six epgs wilh a Dover beater, and adding a cup of mixed sugar, which she stirs in very care fully." Weil, she makes them sweet enough. certainly, but to make good kisses a girl need not be an authority on Bavarian cream aad etcollcpcd oysters. When she stands 01 the lower cross piece her face ought to come at le sat eight Inches above the top of the gate, with the moonlight on one cbesk and the shadow cn the other; then yon know iust where to aim, my son.
