BUCHANAN, nachT-tt ' . Liberty Center, O, ST. Locia, June 18. In his sermon foi today Kev. Dr. Talmago, who has reachec thia city on hia western tour, discusses r Subject of universal Interest vis, "Wom an's Opportunity" hi text being, "Sh ahall be called woman," Genesis U, 33. God, who can make no mistake, mad man and woman for a speelflo work and to mora in particular sphere man to bt regnant In hi realm; woman to be dom inant in hers. The boundary line between Italy and Switzerland, between England and Scotland, U not mora thoroughly marked than thli distinction between the amDlre masculine and the empire femi nine. So entirely dissimilar are the fields to which God called them that you can no more compare them than you can oxygen and hydrogen, water and grass, trees and stars. All this talk about the superiority of one sex to the other sex is an everlost lng waste of Ink and speech. A jeweler mar have a scale so delicate that he can welsh the dust of diamonds, but where are the scales so delicate that yon can weigh in them affection against affection, sentiment against sentiment, thought against thought, soul against soul, a man's world against a woman's world! You come out with your stereotyped re mark that man is superior to woman in intellect, and then I open on my desk the swarthy, Iron typed, thunderbolted writings of Harriet Martinean and Eliza beth Browning and George Eliot You come on with your stereotyped remark about woman's superiority to man in the Item of affection, but I asked yen where was there more capacity to love than In John, the disciple, and Matthew Simp son, the bishop, and Henry Martyn, tho missionary? The heart of those men was so large that after yon had rolled into it two hem ispheres there was room still loft to mar shal the hosts of heaven and set up tho throne of the eternal Jehovah. I deny to man the throne Intellectual. I deny to woman the throne affoctionaL Mo hurann phraseology will ever define the spheres, while there is an intuition by which we know when a man is in his realm, and when a woman is in hor realm, and when either of them is out of it No bungling legislature ought to attempt to make a definition or to sny, "This is the line and that Is the line." My theory is that if a woman wants to vote sho ought to vote, and that if a man wants to embroider and keep house he ought to be allowed to em broider and keep house. There are mascu line women, and there are effeminate men. My theory is that you have no right to interfere with any one's doing anything that is righteous. Albany and Washing ton might as woll decroe by legislation how high a brown thrasher should fly or how deep a trout should plunge as to try to seek out tho height arid depth of wom an's dutv. The Question of capacity will settle finally the whole question, the whole subject. When a woman Is prepared to preach, she will preacn, anu neimer uuir farflnce nor nresbytery can hinder her. When & woman is prepared to move in highest commercial spheres, she will bnye. great influence on-t; exchange, and no hoards of tmij can hinder her. I want woman to understand that heart and brain can overfly any barrier that politi cians nwv tt no. and that nothing can keep fief Oftets or keep her down but the question of incapacity. Universal Itlffr'ag I wna In Knw Zealand litat tfpiir lust <et the opportunity ot suffrage hod been con ferred upon women. The plan worked well. Thero had never been such good or der at the polls, and righteousness tri umphed. Men have not made such a won derful moral success of the ballot box that they need fear women will corrupt it. In all our cities man has so nearly made the ballot box a failure, suppose we let wom an try. But there are some women, I know, of most undesirable nature, who wander up and down the country having ho homes ot their own or forsaking their own homes talking about their rights, and we know very well that they themselves are fit neither to vote nor to keep house. Their mission seems merely to humiliate the two sexes at the thought of what any one of us might become. No one would want to live under the laws that such women would enact or to have cast upon society the children that aoch women would raise. But 1 shall show you that the best rights that woman can own she already has In her possession; that1 her position in this country at this time is not one of commiseration, but one of congrat ulation; that the grandeur and power of her realm have never yet bden appreciated; that she sits today on a throne so high that all the thrones of earth piled on top ot each other would not make for her a footstool. Here is the platform on which she stands. sAway down below it are the ballot box, and the congressional assem blage, and the legislative hall. Woman always has voted and always will vote. Our great-grandfathers thought they were by their votes putting Washington into the presidential chair. No. His mother, by the principles she taught him and by the habits she inculcated, made him presi dent. It was a Christian mother's hand dropping the ballot when Lord Bacon wrote, and Newton philosophized, and Al fred the Great governed, and Jonathan Edwards thundered of judgment to come. How many men there have been in high political station who would have been in sufficient to stand the test to which their moral principle was put had it not been for a wife's voice that encouraged them to do right and a wife's prayer that sounded louder than the clamor of partisanship? The right of suffrage, as we men exercise it, seems to be a feeble thing. Yon, a Christian man, come up to the ballot box, and you drop your vote. Bight after you comes a libertine or a sot the offscouring of the street and he drops his vote, and his vote counteracts yours. But If in the quiet of home life a daughter by her Chris tian demeanor, a wife by her Industry, a mother by her faithfulness, casts a vote in the right direction then nothing can resist it, and the influence ot that vote will thfob through the eternities. Woman and Home. My chief anxiety, then, is not that wom an have other rights accorded her, but that she, by the grace of God, rise up to the appreciation of the glorious rights she already possesses. First, she has the right to make home happy. That realm no one has ever disputed with her. Men may come home at noon or at night and then tarry a comparatively little while, but she all day long governs it, beautifies it, sanc tifies it. It is within her power to make It the most attractive place on earth. It b the only calm harbor In this world. You know, as well as I do that this outside world and the business world are a long scene of jostle and contention. The man who has a dollar struggles to keep It. The man who bag it not struggles to gefrit. Prices up. Prices down. Losses. Gains. Misrepresentations. Underselling. Buy ers depredating; salesmen exaggerating. Tenants seeking less rent; landlords de manding more, struggles about oiHce, Men who are In trying to keep in men out trying to get in. Slips. Tumbles. De falcations. Panics. . Catastrophes. Oh, woman, thank God you have a home, and that you may be queen in it! Better be there than wear Victoria's coronet. : Bet' ter yte thnre than, carry the. 'Bursa of a roar jercers wiin wnica to speai oo tnc height and depth aud length and breadth. and magnitude and eternity of meaning yoa would, with streaming eyos, anu trembling voice, and agitated hand, write It out in those tour .living capitals, HOME. What right does woman want that is grander thau to be queen in such a realm? Why, the eagles of heaven cannot fly across that domlnlnu. Horses, panting and with lathered flanka, are not swift enough to run to the outpost of that realm. They say that the aun never sets npon the Eng lish empire, but I have to tell you that on thia realm of woman's influence eternity never marks any bound. Isabella fled from the Spanish throne, pursued by the na tion's anathema, but she who is queen in a borne will never lose her throne, and death itself will only be the annexation of heavenly principalities. The Grmndaat Wornaa. When you want to get your grandest Idea of a que in, yon do not think of Cath erine of Ruarla, or of Anne of England, or Marie Therora of Germany, but when you want to get your grandest idea of a queen you think of ihe plain woman who sat op posite your father at the table or walked with him arm In arm down life's pathway; sometimes to the Thanksgiving banquet, sometimes to the grave, but always to gether soothing your petty griefs, cor recting your childish waywardness, join ing in your Infantile sports, listening to your evening prayers, toiling for you with needle or at the spinning wheel and on cold nights wrapping you np snug and warm. And then at last on that day when she lay in the back room dying, and you saw her take those thin hands with which s'ae bad toiled for you so long, and put them together in a dying prayer that commended you to the God whom Bhe had taught ynu to trust oh, she was the queen I The chariots of God came down to fetch her, and as she went in all heaven rose up. You cannot think of her now without a rnsh of tonderness that stirs the deep foundations of your soul, and you feel as much a child again as when you cried on her lap, and If you could bring her back again to speak just once more your name as tenderly as she used to speak it, you would be willing to throw yourself on the ground and kiss the sod that covers her, crying: " Mother! Moth er!" Ah, she was the queen! She was the queen ! Now, can you tell me how many thousand miles a woman like that would have to travel down before sho got to the ballot box. Compared with this work of training kings and queens for God and eternity, how insignificant seems all this work of voting for aldermen and common councibnen and sheriffs and con stables and mayors and presidents? To make one such grand woman as I have described, how many thousands would you wont of those people who go in the round of fashion and dissipation, going as far toward disgraceful apparel as they dare go, no as not to be arrested by the po lice their behavior a sorrow to the good and a caricature of the vicious, and an insult to that God who made them women and not gorgons, and tramping on down through a frivolous and dissipated life to temporal and eternal damnation? O woman, with the lightning of your soul, strike dead at your feet all these al lurements to dissipation and to fashion 1 Your Immortal soul cannot be fed upon such garbage. God calls you np to empire and dominion. Will you have it? Oh, give to God your heart; give to God all your best enargles; give to God all your OTilture; give to God all your rennement; give yourself to him, for this world and the next'. Soon all those bright eyes will be quenched, and these voices will be hushed. For the last time you will look upon this fair earth. Father's hand, moth er's hand, sister's hand, child's hand, will no more be in yours.

' Woman's Dominion. Your dominion is home, O woman! What a brave light for home the women of Ohio made some 10 or 15 years ago, when they banded together and in many of the towns and cities of that state- marched in procession and by prayer and Christian songs shut up more places of dissipation than were ever counted. Were they opened again? Oh, yes. But is it not a good thing to shut up the gates of hell fortwoorthre months? It seemed that men engaged In the business of destroying others did not know how to cope with this kind of war fare. They know how to fight the Maine liquor law, and they knew how to fight the National Temperance society, and they knew how to fight the Sons of Temperance and Good Sc.marttans, but when Deborah appeared upon the scene Siseratook to bis feet and got to the mountains. It seems that they did not know how to contend against "Coronation" and "Old Hundred" and "Brattle Street" and "Bethany" they were so very Intangible; These men found that they could not accomplish ranch against that kind of warfare and in one ot the cities a regiment was brought out all armed to disperse the women. They came down in battle array, but, oh, what poor success I For that regiment was made up of gentlemen, and gentlemen da not like to shoot women with hymnbooks In tbeir hands. Oh, they found: that gunning for female prayer meetings was a very poor business! No real damage was done, al though there was threat of violence after threat of violence alH over the land. I real ly think If the women of the east had as much faith in God as their sisters of the west hod, and the same recklessness of hu man criticism, I really believe that in one month three-fourths of tho grogshops of our cities would beclosed, and there would be running through the gutters of th i streets burgundy and cognao and heidsick and old port and schiedam schnapps and lager beer, and you would save your fa thers, and your husbands, and your sons, first, from a drunkard's grave and, sec ondly, from a drunkard's hell! To this battle for home let all women rouse them selves. Thank God for our early home. Thank God for our present homo. Thank God for the coining home in heaven. The Horns Eternal. One twilight, after I had been playing with the children for some time, I lay down on the lounge to rest. The children said pluy more. Children always want to play more. And, halt asleep and half awake, I seemed to dream this dream: It seemed to mo that I was in a far distant land not Persia, although more than ori ental luxuriance crowned the cities; nor the tropics, although more than tropical fruitfulnesB filled the gardens; nor Italy, although more than Italian softness filled the air and I wandered around, looking for thorns and nettles, but I found none of them grew there, and' I walked forth, and I saw tho sun rise, and I said, "When will It set again?" and the sun sank not. And I saw all the .people in holiday appar el, and I said, "When do they put on work' lnsman's garb again and delve in the mine and swelter at the forge?" but neither the crarments nor the robes did they put oil. And I wandered In the suburbs, and I said, "Where do they bury the dead ot this sreat citvf'1 and I looked along by the hills where it would be most beautiful (or th? dead to sleep, and I saw castles and towns and battlements, but not a mausoleum, nor monument, nor white slab could I see.

And I wan no poo. , Mngto find the place where dered out, See. ,he deatltut and t were the hovels ot .,d t Bnd found mansions of amber au.. ler j gold, but no tear did I see or sigh ' ' was bewildered, and I sat under thtf shad ow of a great tree, and I said, "What 41) I, and whence comes all this?" And at that moment there came from among the leaves, skipping up the flowery paths and across the sparkling waters, a very bright and sparkling group, and when I saw .their step I knew it, and when I heard their voices I thought I knew them, but their apparel was so different from anything I hod ever seen I bowed, a stran ger to strangers. But after awhile, when they clapped their hands and shouted: "Welcome! Welcome!" the mystery was solved, and I saw that time had passed, and that eternity had come, and that God had gathered us up into a higher borne, and I said "Are we all here?" And the voices of innumerable generations answer ed, "All here!" And while tears of glad ness were raining down our cheeks, and the branches of Lebanon cedars were clap ping their hands, and the towers of the great city were chiming their welcome, we Dwaglas J.rrold and Leigh Boat. Douglas Jerrold's soul seemed to abhor very trace of study slovenliness. A coxy room was hia in his home at West Lodge,. Lower Putney Common, and his son's, pen has given the world a welcome peop at the ulterior: "The furniture is simple solid oak. The desk has not a speck upon it. Tho marble shell upon which the Ink stand rests has no litter in it. Various- notes lie In a row between clips on the tar blav The paper basket stands near the armchair, prepared for answered letters, and rejected contributions. The little dog follows his master into his study and lie. at his feet." And there were no books maltreated In Douglas Jerrold's stndy. It gave him pain to see them in any way misused. Longfellow had the same sym pathies with neatness and exactitude, Method In all things was his rule. He did not care to evolve fine thoughts aud poetio Images at a desk fixed like the one stable rock in an ocean or muddle. But other distinguished writers have been as careless as these were careful. Car- lyle gives us a curious sketch of Leigh Hunt's menage. In one room the family apartment a dusty table and a ragged carpet. On the floor "books, paper, egg shells, scissors, and last night when I Was there the torn heart of a half quarter loaf." And above in the workshop ot talent something cleaner "only two chairs, a bookcase and a writing table." Cham bers' Journal. William Bradford, the American artist;, had begun life asa business man snd never smite overcame the traditions of trade. With this was combined a rigid oonaclen tiousnosa, derived from his Quaker an eaatry. He and Van Beest were living aS one time la New Bedford. Tan Beest was a genuine awash buckler, gifted with anusual eloquence In the art of profane swearing. Once Tan Beest requested Bradford to refund him a loon of 150. When the ratter protested that It was In convenient to return It then and pleaded for time. Van Brest let fly a volley of red hot oaths, swearing that ha must have the money then and there. With considerable reluctance Bradford handed him a $50 note. Van Beeat there upon proceeded, with the utmost non chalance, to light his pipe with the bill. Completely overcome by such an amazing act of folly following bard on such a blast of profanity, Bradford left the room In a state of stupcf action. A f ter b bad gone Van Beest burst out laughing and took the bill from bis pocket, telling the by standers that the bill which he hod actu ally used to light his pipe with was a counterfeit that he had dextrously substi tuted for the genuine bill, and that he got the money from Bradford at that particu lar time expressly to play off this trick on him.

The edible qualities of horseflesh wore being discussed by a company gathered in ii down town office in Portland, says Tho Orogonian. After a number hod expressed their opinion a gentleman sold that he had never eaten horse meat or mule meat, but he knew that mule meat was good. When asked how he know, he said his mother told him so. His parents came to this ooast by way of the isthmus in 1849 and were 119 days coming up from Panama to San Francisco on a sailing vessel. Of course provisions became scarce, and final ly the passengers were reduced to a cup of rice each one day and a oup of beans each bhe next, and some of thorn grew hungry. When the vessel reached Monterey, a mule was purchased and killed for the passed gers, and his mothor ato some of it as much as she could get and she maintains to this day that it was the best tnoat she ever ate in her life.
