Allen, Cheater. 8. P. Kinard, Newberry C. H. James Grant, Union. Julius Poppe, Anderson C. H. A Woman's Idea. A fine article in tho October nnm ber of Demoresfs Magazine is from tho pen of Mrs. Croly. We givo a few extracts from it: Who is it that buys all tho sugar plums that support our great confec? tionery shops-not such as have restaurants and --bars" attached, but the simpler establishments whero only candies and confections and crystalized sweetmeats are to bo found? Why, women and children, ol' course. Men ocoasioully may bo seen going in or comiug out of them, but men are rarely seen eating can? dies. The paokage they purchaso is nearly always bought to take homo to wife children, or present to some lady friend. This fact illustrates a humiliating truth. Women have boen fed on confectionery until they have ac? quired a distaste for more solid food. In other words, they have boon pot? ted and sweetened into compliance with tho wishes and authority of men, until they have lost individuality and self-respect, and dread nothing so much as the loss of their accus? tomed indulgence. The first thing that a young man does when ho proposes to a girl is to assure her he is willing to work for and support her to tho extent of his means and ability to the cud of his natural life. This assurance the girl receives in perfect good faith, admiring Iiis dis? interestedness, and moro than grate? ful, as is tho manner of women, for his exceeding kindness in selecting her, when, no doubt, ho might have Lid tho choice of many prettier and -richer girls. W* Tho idea that prudence had any? thing to dp with the matter on his part never enters her mind. She would indignantly repel tho intima? tion that he had been confirmed in his resolution of askiug her to bo his wife by tho thought that she would not require too much of him, and could givo him all ho wanted in thc way of housohold services at less cost than he could got it in any other way. lu askiug her to bo hin wife, he proposes to support her, and even in the church servico magnificently offers to endow hor with all his worldly goods-goods that he does not possess, and never will, unless she assists him by her iudustry, thrift and management. What does "endow" moan, thou, and why is tho word used at all? Tho truth is, that it generally meaus that tho wife rccieves from her husband whatever he has a mind to give her, not ns her right, but as his gift, ho retaining all tho control over ii is own property, and very often assuming it over hers, if she happons to possess any in her own right. We have had no mind to ask tho price that many women pay for thoir immunity from household drudgery, for their exemption from absolutely menial employment, for their privi? lege of living in a houso with a few moro rooms, for their costly ward? robes, for their rich jewels; but ono thing is cortain, that all would bo given, and more, very ofton, for the womanhood lost, for tho sense of perfect, absolute freedom. For a paper of promised sugar plums, which they may or may not get, womon barter in marriage their most sacred right, thoir right over their own persons, nud tho control of their own actions. A great deal is said about a wo? man's will, but in mnrried lifo there is but one will, and that ono is that of the man. Mon sometimos make a merit of yielding when they do not care one way or the other, but if they do, all the power on earth oould not turn them. It may bo that there is a necessity existing iu tho nature of tilings for I this inflexibility*, this determination on the part of men. Undoubtedly there aro ends to be gained and ob staoles to overcome, which only strength and persistence could ac? complish; but it must be remembered that will power is just ns often exor? cised in small things ns i ti large, that the habit of control is difficult to lay aside, that great occasions don't always arise, but little ones do con? stantly, when the assertion of an obstinate will, to the exclusion of reason or nrgumeuts proves a source of much annoyance, often of perma? nent misery. Looking at tho subject from this point of viow-what do women gain for tho I088 of all that they unhesi? tatingly givo to men? Nothing, ex? cept tho name of wife. Tho board and clothes, with greater freedom and much less labor and suffering, could bo obtained by hiring out to any other person. This is not set forth as the highest or best view of married life, but sim? ply as the hard, practical side of the question. It is time that women understood for what they exchange themselves, and barter their daugh? ters. It is time that they set them? selves seriously to work, to consider whether it would not be better to educate and train them as indepen? dent bunnin beings, with a purpose in lifo of their own, and knowledge, at least, of what they have to expect as dependents in any position in life. It is not that men are auy worse than women would be under tho snmc circumstances; it is simply that thc dependent position is necessarily the subordinate one, and that this dependence, in the case of women, is increased in an infinite degree bj the su?Fe:ings and responsibilities ol maternity. The better women are treated th< moro reason thoro is to fear for them, and for tho futuro of the sex. I scorns ungrateful to rebel against th< hand that feeds you, no matter hov willing a slave you may bo in return and as there is no recognition of tin labor that women perform, no ac knowledged right to compensation to a share in the income, or to any thing but so much as a gift from he husband, they must grow more nn< more d?pendent ns they grow older and less able to emancipate thom selves from tho necessities of tbei position. Is this well? Is it best to rcs under this stnte of thiugs? To ea tho bread of dependence, and hav tho credit of eating that of charity Shall wo forever perform a full shar of tho work of the world, and relit quish all titlo to its rewards? Sha we forever sell our birth-right for pound of confectionery? The root of the evil lies in th stupid idea that women have, that i is a degradation to work for 11101103 Work they cannot escape, bo the rich or poor. They must work, moi or less, for themselves, for tbei friends, for their husbands, for tbei children, for their homes, or fe charities, and the most of them do early and hito, without a thought t unwillingness, and with real ard< and earnestness, unless it comea i the tangible shape of "cuminT the own living," and then it immediate! becomes a hardship. Tho euro for tho evil rests wii women themselves. Lot them mid vocation before, and independent o niarriago. Lot them bo taught tl infamy of holding their own persoi as their only capital. Teach them 1 place a proper value upon their pot tion and services as wife aud mothc and demand in return for these, n a paper of sugar plums, but a fi recognition of an equal right to siluro in tho income, acquired pr perty, in tho disposition of propert and whatever affects tho interests at welfaro of the family. For our part, wo consider tl right acknowledgement of, and coi pensation for labor, of the highc importun?e, and paramount to 1 others for women. It is bosh f men to talk of women losing tin titlo for courtesy when they elai equality. How much courtesy or how mu protection do women get from ni when they really need it? Tho w men that wo know, who receive t courtesy from men are those w pecuniarily and otherwise aro mc independent of them. Is it not botter to possess $100 one's own, than be dopendent for fi dollars upon some one else, a doubtful whether you ever get it? Money is power. Let women 1 oeivo money for their labor, and th can bay all tho confectionery th want, and something more snbsU tial-their own independence a self-respect. SPECIAL NOTICES.

Tho annals of tho American Republic show no political campaign comparable in thc magnitude of its issues and the mo mentousnesa of its results to that for the Presidency, now pending. Indeed, the very lifo of free government is on trial, and it will ho a sad commentary on the capacity of the people for the exercise of that high trust if they, tho jurors who are to try tho issue, pronounce a verdict of self-condemnation.
