We are more than ever impressed with the truth of the above quotation when we think of the number of poor deluded girls who can be seen every day throng- I ing onr principal thorougntures, trresseti in all the brilliant colors of the rainbow, j Poor, deluded wretches, while they seek to hide their true, colors in nasny clothing, their faces but too well tell the tale of a life of shame and woe.; How many yonng girls, well educated and fit to adorn any station in society, have thrown themselves away for the sftke of " making an ppearance.'' . For " high dress" they arc willing to accept " low life," aud eke out a miserable existence in some out-of-the-way alley. The crea tures who lead them away from the paths of rectitude and clothe them in alL the finery that money can purchase, soon tire of them and leave them for other victims. The gorgeous apparel finds its way to the nearest pawnbroker's, and commoner takes its place. From the irildpd saloons of the aristocratic pro curer they rapidly descend the ladder of shame until they die, young in years, but old in iniquity, in some out-of-the-way hovels, while their seducers flirt in aris tocratic circles, as though they had never done a wrong. If their vices are known, how soon they are forgotten aud the blame all thrown upon the poor girl who, loved and loving, was lost. How soon after the first full do they, like the but terfly, appear in their tree colors. High colored dresses, gaudy ribbons, immacu late cnrK painted cheeks and immodest glances, show at once where they belong yet S3 long as society receives the gentlemen (?) who eause this, so long will our streets be filled with their vic tims. . .

" !, seven ( o'clock, a young man about twenty-five yenrs old. apparently in rouuni. uemui, and calling himRelf Patrick Finnegan, applied at the First Precinct station for . rini,t0i1 him. and ha was locked tip in the cell set apart for lodg- years, and since then has led an aban rs ' as they are called at the1 police j doned life. The woman is now perhaps station. "About three hours afteward a i thirty years old, still fine looking, but couple of his friends called at the station merging fast into the sear and yellow of to ascertain his whereabouts, saying that premature decline. Her rice is almost Finnegan was afflicted with the horrors, and had left home early in the evening for the purpose of, he said, having a good night's rest. Upon being satisfied that he was slumbering in one of the bunks, they left. At five o'clock in the mnrninir. about relief time, ' whila the station wsb filled with policemen, cry of alarm from the cells attraciea ner geant Wynne and other officers to the lodgers' cell, where, through the iron bars, they witnessed a most thrilling apectacle. About a dozen of men were climbing hurriedly to the upper bunks, in the wildest contusion, and calling for assistance, while on the ground Door Finnegan had his left arm encircling a boy about ten years old, while his right hand, uplifted threateningly, held a knife over his would-be victim. ' ' , ' It took lesj time to open the door of the cell nnd allow the in mutes to escape than we have taken to pen one of these lines. But the maniac and the poor child, half dead with fright, remained in the same terrible situation. Various suggestions were made by the persons present to save the boy from the clutches of Finnegan, who the while bed struck a tr.gic attitude and looked fierce as a lioness defending her cubs. Then he would swing his arm to nnd fro several times, bringing the kiiifo's point in con i.t wiih ilm child's breast, r lonlly, the turnkey of the lock-up, iu a fit of desperation, maiii; it D"'" movement m the maniac by drawing; a revolver, which ho aimed at Finnegan's head, summon ; tn fplonso liis hold on the boy. In hideous tones, Finnegan, shielding wlv with that of the boy, cried I must not die laving elnpsed out, "If I have to die l must noi olr,., .t" ' S.nne time having elnp since the onsluught began without re sulting in any injury to thfl boy, Wynne concluded that it would be prudent to leave the door open sq that as soon as the boy could have an opportunity he might escape, and everybody apparent y retired. Ten " minute had senrcely classed when a clamor arose from the interior of the lock-up. Like a flash of lightning the boy was seen to strike for theatreet, Finnegan afterhim with uplift ed arm, the knife still firmly grasped in his hand, cleaving his way through a hedge of policemen, whose surprise had figuratively nailed them to the floor. Then commenced a chase for life down St. Charles street. Two or three shots, fired in the air by the police for the pur pose of arresting Finnegan in his mad career, had as much effect as an attempt to fill up a crawfish hole with water The police, however, had gained so much ground on Finnegan by the time he bad reached Poydra that he sought refuge in a coffee-house, where he was cornered. The fight now commenced in good earn est between the maniac and his pursuers; the latter, it must be said, aware of the condition ot his mina, oinir"' not to injure him, or nnwr vip-atit ntlitn S allow him to injure them. Finally plucky Sergeant Wynne wrested the knife Vrom Finnegan' hand not, how ever, until he had received a painful cut in his own. A few gently administered raps over Finnegan's hands complt'd his subjugation, and he wag taken back .iiHiinri a nrisoner this time.

Mollie distin j guiflhod herself in many other ways, but i never won the applause of any excepting the most denraved. rA moderate sized romance might be written on this fortunate, and yet, oh, how deeply unfortunate, woman's career. She had been seduced when very young by a trusted suitor, and then, in shame and nironv. fled her native shore. She ' enme to this country while yet a cirl in j run, - ana too late to tiring conteniineui to her polluted heart the gift of fortune is noured into her Inn. She may return to her own country to become rich, but she never can enjoy hnr ' accidental wealth with the calm philosophy of vir tue. Doubtless she may not aau to nor Uhort and vicious enreer another decaJe nf venrs ere the wealth, which it is said she has acquired, melts away as the snow of her innocence has been melted and sullied by a life of shame. The Fllrtntloiia of Married Ladle's). " Vic," the vivacious local gossip of the Chicago Tribune, reads the following lecture to per married sisters: One other topic 1 want to touch upon it is the flirtation 'of married women. It Bounds bad, doesn't it? And I wish it were confined to so low a strata of so ciety that rou and 1 need never -touch upon it, j hut this is; not so. 'Women wlio are wealthy, refined and educated, with good homes and attentive husbands, are continually talked about in connec tion with some flirtation, which, if not scandalous, is criminally imprudent. A few evenings since a gentleman of this city went to a lecture accompanied by his wife and two lady friends all moving in the highest social circles. While wait ing on the street corner for n enr the two ladies entered into a conversation with a couple of gentlemen, who followed them into the car, and were only prevented from speaking to them by the presence of their gentleman attendant. When he remonstrated wilh them for carrying on a light.trivial eouveruotion with strangers in thntwav. thev answered that they en- i joyed it it was such fun. There nre j hundreds of women in .this city to-dnv not young nnd tnougntiess women, miner who are idly participating in "such fun," receiving and encouraging the at tentions of men who, like themselves, ore bound by the most solemn vows to others, and who are no less criminal than the ladies in their weak, if uot wicked, intentions. Is "it an infatuatioj7. Is it natural moral depravity, a lack of thos good principles whicli, once firmly established by pnriiiatent Christian teaching, can never be shaken, that women part so lightly with thuir good names, and run the gauntlet of foul suspicion? Wives, too, and mothers who seem to forget that " A wife suspected is a wife disgraced," at least in the eyes of those to whom she can never nltirm her innocence. It is not love! That is too honest to deal in flirtation pr invite scandal. It is selfishness. It is selfishness, vanity of love of admiration, a species of gam bling in which character is at stake. fnn n-rnnnocl un in the cares of business leave their wives ulonft in fashionable bonrding houses, with nothing to employ their time or occupy ineir iuuuruwcv i ceiil tlje routine of fashionable dressing, Uining ail' lisoiu, w,vh, " rrsci, wut-u in irai linn ut in: ...,. . higher influenim, goei further than nny-1 nor ony surviving son, ninde most seri thing else to demoralise wouen- Other J oug allegations aguinst a very eminent men tell her she is pretty; waylay her j Londou physician, who was considered on the street corners; meet her at the j t0 have mismanaged him.

In traveling, the short dress was perfection. Down comes the ruthless milliner, and sews the hideous, dirty dust sweeper on again. And yet we hear all this " preachment " about woman's freedom and woman's rights. Why not get up a revolution against this barbarous proclamation of the milliners? ,Vc York Times. 'Real Me Westerner." A London correspondent of the Boston Journal gives this item: I first saw him in Paris this reully exaggerated type of the Western Ameri can and was amused there by his swing ing manners and free and easy out, but in London it was delightful. . lie was as rough and unrestrained, yet as enjoy able, as a California ballad. Missouri gave him birth, and a contract made his fortune. He wasn't shoddy was sensi ble, and made no foolish pretentions but, translated into the rigid atmosphere of England, he did look queer, tancy the smoking room of an aristocratic English hotel electrified by this: "Waiter, you! Can't yon bring me one of them real old cocktails one o' them way up fellows! Hey! How long shall you be? Can't do it? Well, what sort of a country do you call this? None of the civilized arts left round here, hey? All gone out West." The Englishmen gurgle in despair. Fihally, the Westerner contents himself wUh brandy and soda, and exclaims ad miringly to the friend with whom he is conversing: " How's that for high? That's regulnr old, 'you bet,' brandy I That's what'll make you get up and dust." (It may be necessary to explain that our Westerner means it will increase the power of loco motion.) . A few such Westernisms as this, deliv ered in a loud voice, make the English men quake. It offends but it awes them. And ulthougli, mnyhap, it is not good taste still it is refreshing to see the denu level qf F.nglinh cold sobriety stirred up and wnrmed into ebullition. A New York correspondent of the Cin cinnati Times, writingof Trinity Church, tells this: "An extremely fashionnUe young lady, who was showing a country cousin the interior of the church, was asked what the alpha and omega ou the batismnl font signified. ' The A wus the response, stands for the Almighty: and the other thing, there, is a horse shoe to frighten away evil spirits. Ever since the Lord was born in a stable, the horse-shoe, you know, represents his di vinity.' After this astounding bit of theological rinidition, the blue-eyed liule idint smiled as 'complacently as if she had just discovered a fourth member of the Trinity." A man out in Kansas had been read ing about the African method of using the boomerang; so ho mndo one, and went out hunting for prnirij dogs. He flung thnt boomerang just exactly one time. It didn't hit the dogthe boom erang didn't but it came right back on the man in a disgusting manner, and broke his nose, and knocked out his , right eye. He used to be a Republican, this boomerang man, hut nov he is down on African weapons, Africans, and every thing that has mu Ethiopian rlnvor about it.
