Mrs. Sumner's Saturday baking was
finished. The house was in "apple-pie
order" for Sunday, and Mrs. Sumner
herself was seated in her cosv little
parlor, mending-basket at hand, to
fulfill that last great duty of woman
stocking-darning. Miss Strong, the
little school teacher, who had a room
lip-stairs, had dropped in. also stocking
in hand, for a friendly chut, when a
ring at the door announced the coming
of Mrs. White, Mm North nod Mrs
James.
We met on the doorstep," explains!
Mrs. White. "1 am out this afternoon
collecting for the Ladies" Auxiliaiy So
ciety of Missions. I am fortunate in
meeting four members of our church at
1
once. I hope you will all give me some
thing."
I don't know," said Mrs. James. "I
must ask Mr. James about it.
Mr. James should have honrd the
lecture last night.*' said Mrs. North.
"Perhaps he would realize that his wife
had a right to give away fifty c:-nts, if
she chose, without consulting him, had
he IK'CU present
One of the most noted of our women
lecturers had spoken the night before
upon the rights and wrongs of women,
and the four indie* had listened to the
lecture.
It would have made no difference,
said Mrs. .fames, wearily, have
argued and lagged and pleaded with
him, but it is all to 110 purjose. 'Don't
1 give you every thing you need?1 ho
will ask. 'Women don't need money.
It is always give.' He never seems to
think that 1 have earned any thing. I
have liorne and reared live children,
ltave always done the family sewing,
and although we usually have a girl in
the kitchen, I havo re|ieatedly done the
housework for months together. If I
had been paid, at very moderate rates,
for the labor I have performed in my fam
ily, I should have had far more money
than my clothing and till other exjienses
of my living have amounted to. And
yet. when I ask for money, my liusitand
always enquires what 1 did with the
last money he gave me."
Mrs. James paused, out of breath
"1 am glad 1
am
not married." stud
Miss Strong. "At all events my money
is my own, and 1 can do as I please
with it. But this miserable injustice
that is shown to us women corner home
to me in another way. 1 tun obliged to
earn my own living, and 1 have fitted
myself, at great expense for teaching,
It is my business, my life work. If I do
buy it, I excel in it. Yet I am paid only
about two-thirds us much as a man is
paid for doing the same work, simply
because I am a woman. 1 once fol
lowed, in a school, a man teacher who
even misspelled his pupils' names upon
the register, he wtts so ignorant. Yet
he wns paid forty dollars per mouth,
while I only hud twenty-five. He was
a man with a vote, you see, and 1 was
only a woman.
But you don't mean that you would
really like to vote?" said Mrs. White.
"Yes, I do just that." returned Miss
Strong. "And 1 was so glad to hear,
and to have others hear, that lecture
last night. I am sure good seed was
sown, and some of our people were set
to thinking."'
Well, I must say it seemed very
dreadful and unwomanly to me for a
lady to get up and talk in that way bo
fore all those fieople, though I grant
she was very sweet-mannered, ami did
not look at all like one of those strong
minded women, and they do say she is
a very devoted wife nud mother. But,
somehow, 1 don't like it. Anyway, 1
shan't bother myself about it. I have
all the rights I want.'1
"Fortunate woman!'' said Mm James.
"What makes you go about co, lecling
for missions?''
"Why, what a quest ion, Mrs. James!"
exclaimed Mrs. White. "IIow could I,
a Christian woman, be content to sit
down and enjoy all my religious privi
leges, and never try to help those who
are in heathen darkness?"
"That's just it," returned Mrs. James.
'•You are a Christian. Your ?oul is
safe. You have a church, and a good
minister, aud all the privilege* you
want. Why do you bother yourself
about the heathen?"
"Mrs. James!" ejaculated Mrs. White,
deeply shocked.
"Well, it's no worse than to say that
because you havo all the rights you
want, you won't bother yourself about
the women who haven't any rights.

Such Is Fame.
Occasionally a man appears on the
stage of action who is impervious even
to the tact and grace of the American
women. Several very bright and culti
vated women—some of whose names
appeal- from time to time as contrib
utors to the the columns of the Christiatt
I'nioti—were traveling in Germany.
One of them was very sensitive to to
bacco smoke, and the party had asked
that iu case any gentleman came into
the ear and prepared to indulge in a
pipe or cigar he should lx1 urged to re
frain. Such a person soon made his
appearance. He was a stalwart mem
ler of that army which is a terror not
only to Europe but to (iermany itself, so
autocratic and insolent is the manner
which its officers assume to the un
lucky civilian who is brought in contact
with them. When the request of the
ladies was made known, he threw at
them a glance which shotted how
astounded he was at their unheiu-d-of
temerity. A woman request a German
officer not to smoke! Such a tiling bad
never happened in the Teutonic annuls.
When he realized that he was really de
barred from Btnoking, his wrath was
hardly controlled. He scowled furi
ously. ami no sweetness of the feminine
manner or charm of the feminine smile
mollified him. After an insolent scruti
ny of the party, he concluded that the
offenders were Americans, and, of
course, they must IH those horrible fe
male suffragists, so abhorrent to every
well-regulated German. Summoning
all the resources of English at his com
mand, he repeated slowly and scorn
fuly the cutting words: "Meetinga,"
