Against Marriage. .
MARRY or uot
to marry, "is rapid
ly becoming ?|?rm
tioal question in
thin age of specula
tive theories. It is
n serious question
for the unmarried
oc that should always be seriously
tiered. The ambitions young man
?y is aakiug himself whether he
i-nu atford to impede his pi ogress (?) on
the r?>tid to distinction and eminence hy
en taring intoau alliance so uncertain.
Thei ?. .onj for one to oouclode that
ourma Clarksburg baa many young
i : ) men who are ia sympathy with the
neutpfillosophy. On our tableTs an ex
i*haU:.;B which says:
^ modern developments are, it seems,
in Jwuc against wedlock. The latest
moti in this direction Is the institution
of lucking classes for men. Patent
buttons have been fashioned that pre
elutl . the necessity of a needle. Depots
.^ffii'palrjs are established from which
issue bid lied handmaidens t6 go Into
the bachelor's home and reduce the
rent in hose and the fractures in linon
sit. ?ninhnum~fcost. The trainee^ nurse
has monopolized the most tender of
wifely devotions. Indeed, the wife Is
summarily dismissed from the hus
band's sick-room if danger is Imminent.
A lid the trained nurse is a most engag
ing. low-voiced, gentte institution in
pictnreaquo cap and apron. Her hands
claims one who has undoubtedly had
experience in this line, are like velvet
to the touch, but strong and wondrous
deft. She knows h?w to coax and how
to command, without irritation or
fussiness. Obedience is delicious
when in accord with her sov
ereign will, ller dress never rust
les. She never cries over
poor fellow when he is too ghastly siclc
t<f*|mluro it. She doesn't get her pre
feelings Injured when his heajl
ps bo he is obliged to call on his
Itflpter with undue unction and famll
itmiy. Apartment houses and clubs
galore are luxuriously appointed for
^?;bachelor's comfort. (I en tie women
and fresh young maidens sympathize
with his ideals and ambitions, and vex
him not with talcs of the cook's deliu
fl|ncles or bills for millinery. The
Hfllng dish hn.s been evolved to give
[t.to his lonely estate. And now the
pring class. ? Beccptlons, high teas I
luncheons successfully given with
out a hostess. Beefsteak always rare |
and to one's liking. Quails broiled to j
a turn, and terrapin divinely seasoned.
"All this and lleaven, too," ^s'the old
&>ng Island deacon *aid when ho saw
tiyniiin Berf^s parlor, with its rag
carpet and six ornately decorated
Tin* kindergarten is no lon#&r an ex
periment. It is uot now on the defen
sive, either on its educational or on'Its
philanthropic side. It is rather for
those who i^norantly oppose the kin
k to show cause for their oppo
h fjiee of the almost unan
imous approval of experts, and the en
thusiastic Indorsement of all that part
df the general pulSic Ayho have had the
opportunity of becoming familiar wtyh
its methods and results. That it is a
thoroughly - accredited/ successful, sci
entific Und rapidly spreading education
al device, and no mere fad of the mo
ment, seems to Ih? an established fa<?t,
as may be gathered from inquiry among
the leaders of education everywhere
in America, and from all the teachers
whef whether klndergartners or -not,
liavc come into contact wltli the sys
It> is reported that near C'urrizo
Springs, Tex., an oval topped mound,
covered wjth petrified human skulls,
has been discovered. The mound is cir
cular in form and about one hundred
feet high and on one side is joined to a
short range of hills of about the same
height. On the summit and for some
distance down the sloping side it is cov
ered with what appear to be smooth,
spherical l>ones, which, upon close ex
amination, prove to bo. it is said, -petri
fied''human skulls distorted into gro
tesque shapes. It is further stated
that, by removing the loose dirt and
sand from the orifices of the face, the
unmistakable human countenance is re
vealed. Bones of other classes arc also
said to be founcVthere, and from all ap
pearances tho whole mound is formed
of human skulls.
Not in the history of the present
generation has Lake Erie been fro
zen as .it has been th'^ winter. There
has been an unbroken field of ice from
Detroit river to 1 ?ut-in- Bay. Fishermen
have driven fifteen miles out from Mon
roe, ;and returned with the statement
th&t the ice was solid all the way, and
that it extended as far as they could
see.; The entire Lake Erie archipelago
warfrozen up and -teams were crossing
th<?imoutb of the Detroit river. Fisher
men were compelled to suspend busi
ness." Considerable uneasiness has been
felt, because if the winter breaks up as
it usually does there can scarcely' fail to
be a very serious flood.
Aj/niouon in very common use among
us the very expressive and convenient !
term "Crank" is not an American Word, i
It has been in common use in Derby- j
shire for a generation, and it is stiU ;
often heard. It is used to describe a ]
man who has fads, fancies and notions |
outside the "common run of those of his
neighbors. A man with a bee in his
bonnet is cranky, and so are those who j
ride hobbies of any kind.
Anteloj'K must still be very numer- j
ous in the fetate of Washington. At ?
Blackfoot mount, near Spokane, a few
days ago the locomotive of atraih was
thrown from the tmck by running into
a large herd of antelope, of which sev
en were killed.
One of the fast trains on a western
railroad is known as "Eli." The "be
cause" is plain, even though its plain
ness does Imply a knowledge of slang.
