Among the petitions presented in Congress
last Friday from 23 States', aggregating about
10,000 feigners, asking a Woman's Suffrage Six
teenth Amendment, was one from Michigan,
with 429 signatures 243 women and 181 men.
It was brought forward by Representative Wil
liams, of Allegan.
The ladies are memorializing congress on the
subject of impartial suffrage. Tho object of
the ladies is to secure a sixteenth amendment
to the constitution, prohibiting the States from
depriving any citizen of the elective franchise
on account of sex. As there is no more sense
in making sex the qualification of a voter than
the color of the hair or the'style of the nose,
it is to bo hoped that tho sixteenth amendment
may soon become a law. Until it does we shall
not have shown the world a government of the
people, by the people. (trand Rapids Tost.
Editob Tbce Nohtuebneb :
We have seldom ever enjoyed ourself more
than we did last evening at one of those gath
erings which are so pleasant to old and young
alike, and this one to precious in reviving a
sceno in a drama enacted thirty years ago, in
which tha bort and hostess were tho leading
characters. The gathering was at tho homo of j
Mr. and Mrs. Wni. Tease, in Texan, and the oc
casion that of their cotton wedding. Nearly HO
gueeiB wt-ro present, composed of the friends
and neighbors of the happy pair. Among tho
guests were a couj'Io who law them united in
wedlock the lirst time. Doing aged, and tho
habits cf earlier jears still clinging to us, we
drove over early in the evening and was kindly
welcomod by tho fair daughter who played tho
part of hostess admirably the bride and groom
not bcins present on the arrival of their guests.
At a later and more fashionable hour tho com
pany came pouring in until the spacious parlors
were filled to overflowing. It being known that
the occasion was a cotton wedding, thoy each
brought their little cotton present. At nine
o'clock the brido and groom were visible to
their gueuta tor the first time that evening,
dressed in tho same etyle as on their wedding
day thirty ea?n ago. They wero conducted to
the upper end of tho parlor, and as they stood J
thero with joined hands they were the cynosuro
of all eyes present. Wo heard rnoro than one
beanied specimen of the genus homoexclaim,
'How well the brido looks in that costume !"
while a fair lady was heard to remark, Yhat
a splendid collar tho groom has on !" Wo tho't
then, "What a difference in taste! Ono ad
miring the groom's bride, and tifo other his
pnen." Rut ie most admired the arrangement
of the lady's hair, which becanio her so well.
The marriage ceremony was performed by L.
S. Buiuick, Esij. Jmme-lately after which was
suug " Silver Threads ;uoog the Goid," nnd
very appropriate, we thought, for, as standing
near, and these words of the eong still ringing
m our ears :
O, my darling ! mine, alono alone !
You iavo never older growu."
wc overboard the proem pny to his bride, " "I is
thirty yea. j huco yo'M eyes firut cheered inino
delight, aud yet you look vounjcr than ever to
night !" and wo know by tho tono of his voico
that his h-uit wa.-i ii the words 1:0 ut'ercd. Af
ter the soug and coiis'ratulationo camo the pies
entatiou cf the aforesaid cotton tokens of
friendship aud tstccm, and then the Bupper.
As with a lair lady uj. cn our arm we followed
to tho dining room, whf re our eyes were daz
zled Ly tiie glittcrng array of crystal,'silver and
snowv linen, noon tables groaning beneath
their load of choicest viands, we were about to j
exclaim "Th los!" but remembering that
was slang, and tho fair lady upon our arm used
a term rather more polite if not so expressive,
and said, Texas against the world for a sup
per, and tho bouso of Pease to furnish it."
While doing justice to the wedding feast, and
all as merry as that 44 marriage bell" we have
heard so much about, a little incident trans
pired Illustrative of the truth of that trite Bay
iug, 44iIov cay it is to bo mistaken by outward
apicaranccB." Wn-hiug to have our cup re
plenished with that beverage which cxhileratcs
but does not intoxicate, wo handed it towards a
gentleman whom wo mistook, by the cut of his
hair aud (ho bland buii.'e upon his faoe, to be a
waitei. Iuiaumo our "piieiinx when wo wero
info-r.ird, in tones that would make tho own
er's fortune ou the stage, ihat be was an hon
ored guest, not a waiter. A very email sum
would have purchased the writer just then. We
thought to apologize, bu coild not bring our
gray hairs to the point. He afterwards proved
to bo a 44 middle man," yclopod an agent. That
eamo evening wo observed him endeavoiing to
nell a mow ing machino to one who was "to the
manor born," and as we listened to his glib
tongue, extolling tha monts of his worthless
machine, we ardently wished his i,wir?r had
been les.
After supper we were entertained with music
and pailor games, In which all joined w ith a
childish abandon ko pleasant to eoe in those no
lonser voung, and to many that evening will
ever remain a bright spot "on memory's goldon
shore." After bidding our host and hobtess
good-night -or rather good-moruing and wish
ing them many returns of such plpapaot occa
sions, we ordered our ponies, and as we drove
home in the "wee sma' hours agant tho twaelt
enjoying the ride and the moonlight, onr mo
ther wap beard to remark, as she was tacking
the robes more closely about her, 44 How pleas
ant it is in theeo days of many divorces to meet
with those who, after living together as man
and wife for thirty years, are so well pleased
with each other that they wish to tenew thoir

BY A. 8. DYCK1UN.
Sadly, fondly we remember
Erst, the joys of tby young days-
Fleeting days love could not number.
Full of simple childhood ways ;
Footstepa e'er so lightly tripping,
lunocence of laugh and bod ?,
World of happiuesH completing.
And we thought to keep thee long.
Heavenly light that crossed the threshold,
At tho passion of thy birth,
Shall we mourn its swirt departure.
Siuce it was not born of earth ?
Thero was kindled at thy coming.
In our hearts a sacred flame :
Light of love, amid tho darkness.
It must ever burn the same
(lone from earth-lifo, thou ait cherished
Still in hope, ob, Lula dear '.
Iu the home of- our affection.
Warmly art thou folded here :
Let tho hearth be monumental,
Sacred angbt that tells of thee ;
Treasure dearest of the household.
That doth tell us moat shall be.
Comes to us this sweet reflection
What thou art and ire shall be ?
Can we doubt of God's direction
God of love's infinity :
Soul so pure as gentlo Lula,
HliHsful guerdon may not lose ;
Hearts that love will meet thee dearest :
Such the way we can but choose.

One recommendation made at the late meet

that at the end of each grade of studies tho
student should be required to pais an examina

tho University, said ho found it advantageous
to divide tho class into sections of eight or ten,
aud assign to each eectiou threo or lour sub
jects upon which the etudents shall prepare
essays ; also to writo upon tho blackboard the
eentence to be criticised. Criticism should not
be restricted to sentences and words, but should
include the style and subject matter. There is
no reason why the elements of rhetoiic and
English composition ehonld be eo neelectod
until the student reaches tho university. State
Superintendent Bnggs said : 44 We have had a
It w upon our satute books for nearly bix years

From the Evening News.
Mr. Editor : Now as the fjrht is going on in
the legislature of this State over the medical
monopoly bill, it is refreshing to know that we
stilt have statesmen whom we cau trust, and
f oel that they have the interest of the people at
heart, and are not afraid to stand up and fight
for tne liberties of their constttaeuts, such
men as Mr. Wood, of Jackson, ana his con
freres. How long, pray, have those members of this
would-be privileged cluss enjoyed the conli
denco of the people to such uu extent that tbey
can claim to bo the solo guardians of our future
welfare and happinesj? I well remember a few i
short years ago when it was not an unusual
thing to find cases of malpractice in at leatt one
out of eveiy five families that came under their
caro. But that happened in the early days of
the now great State of Michigan! and when the
country was sparsely settled and the fever and
ague were giants in the land, and when it of
course required desperate meaus to exterminate
the destroyer. It was no unusual thing to meet
persons who had little or no use of thoir teeth
or jaws, lips eaten awy tho features destroy
ed, the body doformed, the limbs helpless, and
a broath that the stench of a gas-houoe sower
was like the balm of a thousand flowers by the
side of it. And this all dono by tho medicines
prescribed by the'honored profession that claim
to be our protectors : graduates of medical col
leges, with their sheep-skins hanging proudly
on their orlice walls, as a guar&uteo to the pub
lic that they (tne M. l. sj are to ne trustou, ana
that their patients should havo proper medical ;
attendance.
What has caused this araod transformation

tains all recommendations as does Dr. King's
1 New Discovery for Consumption, Cougb9 and
Colds, being perfectly reliablo in every respect.
A severe cough or a neglected cold yields reaui
ly to its wonderful power. By it tho worst cases

The Coloseal Bronze Statue of Yictory which
stands in the Park at Lowell, befo.ro the tomb
of the first soldiers that fell in the revoiution.is
a lasting and beautiful tribute of art. It is one
of the first objects sought by strangers visiting
our sister city, which indeed many visit pur
posely to see this elegant object of high art. It
was obtained from tho King of Bavaria by Dr.
J. C. Ayer, to whom his Majesty was especially
gracious in acknowledgment of what his reme
dies are reputed to have dono for tho suffering
sick. It was donated by the Doctor to the city
of Lowell as a permanent and speaking emblem
of the victories both of Science and Arms.

There is no medicino that has accomplished J
so much as Suiloh's Consumption Cure. It I
has established tho fact that Consumption can !
bo cured, while for Asthma, Bronchitis, Croup, j
Hoarseness, Whooping Cough, and all Lung ;
diseases it has no equal. No medicine was ever
sold on such favorabio terms. If it was unreli- j
able it would be tho greatest folly to guarantee '
if. It costs noUiing to try it, as it can le ve-j
turned if it does not give satisfaction after using j
two thirds of a bottle. Call at my drug Btora
and get a sauiplo bottle for 10 cents or a regular ;
size for o0 cents or fcl 00. If vour Lungs aro i
