A Courageous Boy*
The Swiss Times tells a story of a shep
herd lad, fourteen years of age, in the Can
ton Orisons. On the Monto di Campo the
youthful shepherd fed his flock, when a
huge bear made his appearance and un
ceremoniously began to teed himself on the
same flock. When he had seized one of
the finest sheep the courageous boy began
to beat him about the head with a stick, in
order to drive him away. The infuriated
beast turned upon bis slender assailant, de
termined to finish bis mutton on him. The
youth turned and ran, and remembering
that there was not far off a gorge nearly
200 feet deep, hut so narrow that he might
clear it by a vigorous leap, started for it,
with bruin close at his heels. He reached
the edge of the ravine, and, by a very des
perate hound, landed safely on the other
side, while the stupid brute behind him,
not noticing his danger, stumbled headlong
to the bottom. The boy, descending the
gorge, found his enemy disabled by the
bruises, and soon dispatched him by beat
ing out his brains with stones.

Mis# Lilian Edgarton on "Gossip."
We copy the following report from the
Chicago Times:
Miss Lilian S. Edgarton lectured last
evening in the Union Park Congregational
church, on "Gossip; its Cause anil its Cure,"
The attendance was large, anil the ladv was
greeted with applause at frequent intervals.
Her appearance was particularly pleasing,
dressed as she was, plaiuly but elegantly.
The following is a synopsis of her lecture :
There is nothing escapes Talk, then why
shoutil not talk be talked about ! Why
should Those who talk about other people
not ho spoken of themselves I She did not
see why a pleasant hour might not be spent
in this way. Like all other Saxon words,
the word gossip had various applications.
It meant a godmother, a re.lativp in the ties
of consulship, an old woman, an inveterate
retailer of other people's affairs. The most
exact definition she could devise was its
inquisitiveness into, and communicativeness
about, other people—more especially their
domestic affairs. Gossip was the limited
talk about persons, and not at all about
things, theories or principles.
History was hut the crystalization of gos
sip and biography, its efflorescence and tra
dition preceded both. The gossip which is
the verbal expression of mutual interests in
each other was simply an unavoidable obe
dience to an eternal law. It was an appe
tite as lawful to gratify as any other im
planted within them, and, like other human
appetites, liable to be turned into a curse.
It was a deep human interest that writes
history. It put a stylus in the hands of
Herodotus, and built a Bullock press in the
Times office. The links in the chain ot
human sympathy were not great thinkers,
but great gossips. , . , „ ,
Miss Edgarton here eulogized tea, and
said gossip did not lurk iu it. She then
read a scene from the "School tor Scandal, '
with admirable effect. Then she continued:
The habit of gossip intensified with age.
The step was easily taken. Ike gossip of
man was of a less repulsive nature than
that of woman: but this was due to liis
greater responsibilities and wider associa
tions. She illustrated her argument. Men
were to blame because they did not culti
vate a subject on those topics interesting to
both sexes, and it was for want of a proper
subject woman went off into woman s rights
ami kindred topics. In a social gathering
men talked polities and business; women
talked dress and sometimes free-loveism.
The indelicacies of the woman movement
w ere not the offspring ot female philosophy,
but of a female discontent rising from iso
lation of sympathy and interest. Trashy
and silly gossip was the love ol talk to exer
cise the glands, just as some people tolind it
impossible to keep their legs quiet. A par
tial reason why men gossipped less than
women was because they Cxcicised their
mouths masticating nasty tobacco.
She said it a good, sound Democrat would
keep tobacco away from General Grant six
months he would stump-the States for his
own re-election. There were two causes
why the abuse of gossip was greater on the
part of woman than man. Man could not
talk because brain aud body were always
in motion; woman, ou the other hand, was
at needlework, and her head was unoc
cupied. The law was imperious to both.
A cobbler or a tailor gossips as much as
anv woman.
The difference between male political
gossips and women who gossip was, men
resort to scandal because truth aud justice
was against them, while women resort to
it from feeling and a love of vanity and
power. The difference between conversa
tion and gossip was. the first was talk
which was of interest to people generally,
while gossip was talk which had lor its 00
ject the affairs of particular people.
As to the cure of gossip, it could only
be applied to its abuses, for if all gossip
be abolished it would only be when human
sympathies were extirpated. As to its
abuses, they could only he completely
cured when human nature was purified as
bv fire. Still the eviis of gossip should he
mitigated, and they should earnestly ad
dress themselves to this end.
Whatever might be the result of the en
dowment of her sex with the privilege of
voting, she was confident it would not dis
continue tho abuses of gossip. She feared
the good old maxim, "Not men hut meas
ures." would be reversed, and that the per
sonal characteristics of the candidates
might awaken a deeper interest than their
principles. Nor did it seem to her the cure
for wicked gossip, in the present state of
woman's department, lay in the direction
of woman's political enfranchisement.
Rather would it dwell iu the inculcation
on young women of a respect for the in\ i<>
lability and saeredness of private character,
anil tliat truth was the only policy that ever
permanently wins; for, though a lie might
triumph to-day, it would be turned to Dead
sea ashes tomorrow.
in conclusion. Miss Edgarton said solid
comfort was to he found iu the training of
the mind by liberal studies, and that one's
whole trust and soul's surrender should not
be made to tickle men and women : but
! part of our heart's adoration should bo
given to the unvarying friendship of art, lit
erature aud science. In the inclination of
the new ambition for American ladies to be
come brilliant and instructive conversers
on topics not at ail involving the
peculiar habits of their personal liiends
and neighbors. In the inculcation of the
knowledge that modesty of expression was
only less beautiful than modesty of life.
Let them ever remember ■that He who for
gave the erring Mary and loved the chil
dren of Jerusalem's household left behind
no word of wicked construction of His
neighbor's life, but iu lieu of indorsing
scandal, even of the confessedly sinful,
hushed accusation by reminding all of our
common frailty. Speak kindly of the eri ing,
praise the good, and exercise your natural
love of talk in the furtherance of charitable
talk and the encouragement of charitable
deeds. Be not satisfied with heeding the
commandment. "Do unto others as you
wotil I have others do unto you," but realize
in your conduct a heavenly beauty of the
kinilied duty. "Speak of others as you
would have others speak of you."

Gossip from the Capita 1 .
We reproduce a letter to the St. Louis
Times :
I Icatn from the best ouihoiity that
Grant is very indignant at Forney, on ac
count of liis" resignation, and that it was
only alter the most urgent solicitation that
he was induced to write him the letter of
"regret,'' which was published yesterday.
Forney's resignation is, however, not half
so suggestive as it is asserted to he. He
will support Grant's renominafion actively,
and take his pay after his re-election—if
that should come." The fear that he would
not be permitted to resign just at this criti
cal juncture wits the impelling cause for his
abrut action without conference with the
President, but since the deed lias been dom
ain! the President has publicly acknowl
edged the value of his services, the seeming
difficulty has been arranged. He was
closeted with Grant this afternoon, and goes
back to Philadelphia to-night promising a
full delegation from Pennsylvania; The
talk that he has been unfriendly to Grant
for over a year past is all bosh. The eol
lectorship which was given him last spring
was the result of a clear bargain, and as
much of a trade as the purchase of a dol
lar's worth of sugar at a green grocer's shop.
I am surprised to see that Sumner's reso
lution in regard to the unauthorized sale of
arms to the French government, lias cre
ated no more excitement than it has. The
debate on it this afternoon, however, dis
closed its importance, ami although Grant's
apologists pretended to believe it. was a
blank c artridge, they are seriously alarmed,
it has a two-fold object—one to show that
the administration has violated neutrality
laws in surreptitiously selling arms to a
belligerent engaged in war with a nation
with which we were at peace, and the other
to show that tbeie has been grave defalca
tion, amounting to neatly, if not over
$2,090,17)0.
The President's private secretary, Bab
cock, is the person alluded t o evidently,
and the proofs are said to be direct and in
disputable. The resolutions, although in
troduced bjvSimmer, were mainly prepared
by Scliurz. Trumbull, Ferry and. Fenton
wi re privy to the matter, and will support
the investigation. It. is confidently expend d
that the result will be most damaging to
Grant, and wiii alienate the entire German
Republican vote. Sumner said yesterday,
to a iiii-nd, that it would defeat Grant's
nomination iu the Philadelphia convention.
Grant's friends, on the, contrary, ridicule it
as a weak invention of the enemy, anil as
sort that while it will be impossible to de
feat Grant's renomination, all who are en
gaged in the last movement will be obliged I
to eat humble pie in large quantities before
the election.

The Coleman t hiidren.
The Coleman children made llu-it- debut
iu this city last evening, at the St. Charles
Theatre, to a fair audience. The Cole
man children as yet are new to tho most
of our play-goers, aud their fame lias
no doubt reached the ears of many per
sons who have long desired to see these
truly wonderful children. At last an op"
portunity is offered, as they perform a
limited engagement in this city.
The drama in which they made their
debut is founded upon rhe popular novel
ot "Fashion and Famine," by Mr. Stevc
nos, and called "Stolen by Gypsies." Every
one who lias perused this grand work is
acquainted with the many startling and
beautiful scenes it contains. The drama
has improved the book, and to the satis
faction of the audience.
The piece is interspersed with olio per
formances. Misses Louie and Alice per
I formed a banjo duet. Louie and Clara
I gave an exhibition of the drum and fife,
| which is really interesting, aud elicited
j considerable applause, but the crowning
j feature of the evening was the performance
i of Clara. She executes iu a wonderful style,
and iu a manner that no other banjoist
has eve. attempted. For one so young in
years she is a marvelous prodigy and can
not fail to win tho applause of the audi
ence. Louie and Clara also deserve special
lueution for the mannar in which they per
formed in a Kittling Donnybrook jig. This
performance was encored frequently.
The opinion of the audience was that
they are the greatest wonders t'aat have
ever appeared in this city.
