the payment of tho bill, on tho ground that it
would open tho door to similar bills and claims

Commissioner Guenther regarded it a suspi

THE WOMAN QUESTION.
MOSCOE VS. MONROE.
It seems as though there was something In the
prganizatiou of tho ordinaty loafer which enables
him by some kind of instinct to discover any cam)
Involving divorce, broach of promise of marriage,
seduction, inhuman treatment, or any of tho
other ordinary or extraordinary accompaniments
of tho marriage relation, and a court-room is
into to be filled. Crow No. 1 drops in and crow
No. 2, after waiting a few minutes, follows to
soo on what blspredecessor Is feeding. Then crow
No. 3, catching a glimpse of the attentive mugs
of his brothers, of course follows, to get a
“ divide.”
A caae waa on trial before Judge Farwoll yes
terday which, although involving nothing that
could feed a prurient appotito, being a quarrel
between husband and wife, naturally attracted ft
good audience. The euit was that of Bsrah
Monroe against her husband, ICllsha L. C._ Mon
roe, for separate maintenance. Both parties ora
crameutlv respectable in appearance, Mr. Mon
roe being engaged in the freight oflieo of the
3.ako Shore A Michigan Southern Iliulroad, and
ooth are old enough to bo able to keep the two
maxima which are recommended to Sun
uav-school scholais, of “Bear” and
Forbear. ** Mrs. Monroe said that
eha was married in April, 1870, and lived with
h:m until June 27, 187:1, when her spouse re
marked one mornings “If you don’t apply for a
divorce I ehall light out, and leave you to shift
for yourself.” Ami he did “light out.” Two
dxys after ho reappeared oh the scone, gathered
up hin paper-collar aud tooth-brush, and again
departed “for good." Immediately ou hie leav
ing Ibo first time, Mrs. Monroe Hied a petition
for separate maintenance, and obtained a writ of
no exeat, ou which bo was arrested and held to
btt In bis answer, Mr. Monroe states that bis wife
was very uncertain in regard to her hours, often
rolng off for a long time without his knowing
of her whereabouts. She also was possessed of
(hat very rare accomolishment of her box—
siiouce; so that she often went for months to
gether without speaking to him. Then, to cop
tuc climax, she had a dog which she persisted m
beeping in bod with her. livery remonstrance
against this invasion of his rights was met with
anger or a fit of silence. In tact, Mr. Momoo is
of the opinion that silence is not such an excel
lent thing in a woman as some pretend. Ho ac
knowledges that in a moment of anger ho did
threaten to “ light out,” but denies that he ever
carried his throat into execution.
She, on the other baud, alleges that some
“business" kept him down town every day
until about 12 o'clock at night, and that his con
duct was such that eh* could not endure it.
Add to this that he divided hm affections be
tween her and the bottle.—the latter having the
preference,—and she felt that he was not the
man of her choice. ...... .
The defendant claimed that the abandonment
bad not boon proved; that it was not complete
n lion tbo bill was filed; aud also that no perma
nent alimony could be given unless there had
been a previous decree of divorce. Ihe caae
was concluded and taken under advisement.
AM ALLEGED (JAY DECEIVER.
Albert Jones, a festive youth with a coal-black
mustache of magnificent proportions, hut of
‘ doubtful voracity in regard to color, was an ap
plicant yesterday for a writ of habeas corpus.
In his exceedingly brief affidavit Mr. Jones sim
ply says he U illegally restrained from his liberty
U the Sheriff. Attached to the alfidavit, how
ever, is a copy of a requisition which shows that
Mr. Jones is wanted iu Hudson, Mich., to an
swer to a charge of seduction. The writ was
served, and late in the afternoon Jones and the
scent from Michigan, with the attorneys, ap
peared in court to be heard. Judge Oaiy was
busy, however, and the case was set for to-mor
row* morning at 10 o’clock.
STREET-CAR ETIQUETTE.
common counxeay a lost art.
fy th, SUitor ./ Tht Ckirnse ITrinuiw ;
Cmcauo, Jan. 11.—I am fully aware that lam
.bout to venture upon delicate ground, and am
mow than liablo to “ put my foot iu it i” but lb«
spirit moves mo, and I must needs say a few
voids, whlqh, it pot complimentary, are tiudly
meant. ,
Many years ego I had the pleasure of listening
to Wendell Phillips’ eloquent aud iutereoliug
lecture entitled “The Lost Arts,’’and I have
several times of lato, while riding in the street
oars, queried whether common courtesy ought
not to be added to the list.
I am not what i» known as a lady's man, and
yet I have » profound regard and a reasonable
admiration for the fair box. I wish to retain
bolh. yet Boraetlraeß I am sorely tempted to go
back on my own record of more than two-score
years in this respect. , ... .. „
J Street-cars are a purely democratic Institution,
where all who pay their faro and conduct them
selves with propriety, no matter whether they
are old or young, rich or poor, dressed In velvets
or ginghams, broadcloth or homespun, are for
tlm time being on an equality 5 thl» is tllo theory,
at fe e a day, as a rule. lam compelled to ride
about 3 miles In these democratic conveyances,
am) I am not infrequently vexed (I had almost
said disgusted) by the lack of courtesy mani
festod by persons wlio have the form, features,
and apparel of ladies. It is quite a common cus
tom, and as I think a proper one, when the scats
are all occupied, and a lady enters, for a gentle
man to cel up and off'r his seat to her. Com
mon courtesy would seem to demand a
polite ami grateful recognition of the
favor; this is frequently done, but
one can hardly ride two miles without ob
serving quite the contrary. For instance. I saw
one day last week a plainly but respectably clad
gentleman relinquish his scat to an elegantly
dressed female,—l cannot call bor a lady. Him
flung herself into the seat without so much as a
look of acknowledgment of the courtesy 5 and
when, a few blocas farther on. the passenger
pitting next to her loft the car, she immediately
turned herself in her seat and spread her skirts
so as to fill the space lost the man
should be so presuming as to sit
bcsldo her. 1 thought then, and
still think, that, had I boon the conductor, the
gentleman would have bad the opportunity to
resume his seat. , , , , . - „
This in by no moans an isolated case, a row
Sabbaths a*go I was riding homo from down-town,
quietly reading Ton Sunday TmnuKK. It was
iuat as church-going people wore going to morn
ing service. I cannot say that X was gorgooiiHly
arrayed, but Ido «ay I had on a neat bnsmosn
sml, clean linen, and bad Just been
shaved. The car was soon idled with
pious folk ou their way to their places of wor
ship, The car stooped and a bcmitnul young
lady, dressed in the height of fashion, entered.
I know sho was a lady, for she wore costly sables
and lavender gloves, and had sparkling solitaires
pendant from her ears, and then such an elegant
prayer-book as she bad in her little band, I at
once arose and offered her my scat, which, os a
hdy, she took as a matter of course, and, os her
actions bhowed. as a matter of right.
Presently we reached a church, and a lady sit
ting next got out. lof course sat down, and
this flue lady, to accommodate whom I had boon
standing for some time, gave me a look made up
of equal parts of surprise, contempt, and in
dignation, that I suppose ought to have
caused mo to slink out of the car aud
ride on the platform; but I was not quite
sensible enough for that, so I coolly opened
my XarnCNE and resumed my readme, and 1
have a sort of indistinct impression that there
was a half-smothered ejaculation escaped my
lips, which, if plainly spoken, would have been
*• shoddy." A true ladv is nhvayH courteous, but
no amount of veneering, in the shape of line rai
ment and costlv Jewels, can long conceal ingram
vulgarity. A Jackdaw will remain a jackdaw m
spite of the gay plumage borrowed from the pea-
C °Aootbor incident occurred during this same
trip, which to me was a pleasing contrast to the
ono I have related. Juat after I had relinquished
my seat, a plainly but neatly clad Irish woman,
carrying a heavy basket, entered. Sho looked
flushed aud weary, and a real gentleman sur
rendered bis seat to her. Sho not only looked
her gratitude, but said, “Thank ye kindly, air:
but indade I wouldn’t take >our Hate, only I am
so tired." Which of these two women was the
true ladv? ■ , , . . T
With this rather lengthy statement as a text, i
wish to make a few remarks to the ladies who
rido in Hlroot-carn. , „ . ,
A real gentlewoman Is such in all places, and
on all occasions; and tho sweet graces of cour
tesy and suavitv are as becoming to her on the
streets ami in the cars as m the drawing-room.
Do not fall into the too common error that lino
clothes and a well-filled purse absolve you from
regarding tho gentle amenities of life, but
remember that they rather increase your
obligation to observe them, especially
towards those who have them not.
This is a topav-turvey world, and the next revo
lution of tbs wheel of fortune may bring you
down, aud elevate thoao whom you consider be
neath you to-day. But as more wealth cannot
make a lady, neither can tho loss of it unmake
one; true gentility is not contingent upon con
ditions so liable to chance. When you are
tempted to bo proud aud put on airs, just cal
to miud a couplet from Baxo’spoem of “Proud
Mieb Mcßride ” :

TUB EMPLOYMENT OP SOLICITORS.
The Chicago Board of Underwriters hold a
meeting yesterday afternoon at thoir office, No.
127 LaSalle street, President Jouathao Goodwin,
Jr., in the chair.
The principal business transacted was a dis
cussion of codifying tho rules and regulations of
the Board, but no decisive action was reached.
Tho following rule relating to brokers and
solicitors called forth considerable debate s
Members may employ awliUnli on salary
or «m commUalon. Bald solicitors to no nrat
registered with the Secretary, and said so-
Udtora shall be hold to be in the exclusive
employ of the agency or company regtulcrltiß same,
snd no member shall do business with any sollc tor or
broker not in his exclusive employ ; nor shall ruiy
member of this Board receive any Imslmna from the
solicitor or broker lu the employ of any oilier member
of the Board, except auch business is placed in the
caiueof the ngoucy by whom said anllcitor Is em
ployed, and the premium collected of such agency. Ho
person shall be considered a solicitor or assistant
whoso business Is not chlelly that of ftre-Insuruaeo.
This rule was adopted about a year ago. but
has not boon enforced. If enforced, tt would do
away with a largo number of solicitors who are
now swarming in tho city. It is believed by the
more conservative companies that tho insurauco
business would bo greatly benefited if no so
licitors wote employed. Those men, in many in
stances, aro irresponsible persons who will in
sure or recommend to bo insured almost anv
kind of property, no matter how hazardous it
may be. to get their commissions. The bettor
class of companies do not now employ solicitors,
nor do they pay commissions, but tho smaller
firms will mnko a strong fight In favor of solicit
ors and the payment of commissions.

An adjourned mooting of the Chicago Poultry
Association was held last evening in the cilice of
the Pratrie Farmer, tbo President, L. L. Lamb,
In the chair, and Mr. A. W. Landon acting an
Secretary. A circular from a meeting of
the poultry-breeders of tba Northwest,
called together by tbo lowa Stato
Poultry Association for tbo purpose of
organizing a Groat Western Poultry Association,
was road. For this purpose It wa» decided, ac
cording to tbo circular, to bold au exhibition in
this city some time during tbo present winter,
as It was thought that this method would call
out other poultry Interests of the Northwest.
It was doomed desirable by tbo members pres
ent for the Chicago Poultry Association to get
up an exhibition which would take tbo place of
tbo ouo proposed by tbo Groat Western Associa
tion. After some discussion It was agreed
to hold an exhibition, commencing
March 4 and lasting one week. Messrs.
E. M. Teall. Alonzo Solder, H. D. Lmcry. and
Dr. N. H. Paaron were appointed a special com
mittee to prepare for such an exhibition, and to
notify the other associations throughout the
Northwest of their Intention. Tbo exhibi
tion wdl include all domestic ani
mals and pots, as well as poultry.
The 4th of March was fixed upon as that would
allow Eastern exhibitors at the Milwaukee show,
which occurs a few days previous, a chance to
exhibit in this city on their way homo. It is
probable that tbo exhibition will bo bold in wo
Exposition Hullding. The next mooting will be
bold Monday evening, when the Executive Com
mittee will report.

TUB Y. «. 0. A.’fl DIME SERIES* I
Tho dime lecture conrso of tie Young Men a
Christiau Association was inaugurated last even
ing. Sir. U. G. Spafford, of this city, being the
lecturer. His subject was 41 Oliver Cromwell,”
which, being naturally a dry one, failed
to attract oven a reasonable audience.
The history of Cromwell, as recited,
was as pot feet, perhaps, as any one could wish.
The weather and counter attractions may atone
for the size of tho audience, hut certainly not
for the inertness of tho lecturer, for whom the
Association, in its announcements, manifested
such great pride. It is true, a dime is very little
money for a lecture or an evening’s enter
tainment, and it is oquallv true that lec
ture-coors attach a reasonable value to their
time. It is hoped that tho future lectures of
the course will be better attended, which can
only be secured by a guarantee of bettor lec
tures. An outortainmout, to be cheap, must be
good. The people domaud quality rather than
quantity, and above all is vivacity necessary in a
lecture to Its enjoyment, lot He oubject-matter

I course will be delivered on tho !Uth mut., by

Power off imagination*

nation over the human organism baa Just attract
ed some attention iu Peris. A poor old watch
maker, Frederic Btiobmaon, who lived in the
Rue dev Halles, has heou tho prey of a singular
delusion for the past fow months. Ho imagined
that his soul bad passed from bis body into a
peculiar watch which he had inveoted, and upon
which he had worked for twenty years. “On
the day that mv watch stops," Btiebmaun was
wont to say, "t shall die. My life has become
subordinated to that of the watch.” A few days
ago the watch began to tun Irregularly, at first
too fast, then too slow. “lam very ifi,’’ said
the old mau, and be took to his bed. Two days
later the watch stopped. Btiobmaon noticed the
uumovmg hand, ho rose to a sitting position,
uttered a cry, aud fell back dead.
