K EL PASO, TEXAS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1897. j- i .'! l! ! i T . . . :i!n. i . i mm; EDUCATED WiVKS. Are Bettr Equipped for the Duties of Motherhood and Home. Mis C'ara Boslwlck, a teacher at th Elms school io Springfield, Mass., write to the Boston Advertiser: "What la the tollepe womaa's proba bility of happines3 in marriage com pared with that of her less bigbly edu cated sister? She eho?es her husband later. She is more deve'oped; she knows better what she is going to be; he stands in better chnce of not aelerstinir a life companion whosi taste id hers will prov helple'sly antagon istic. And this is ol especial impor tant) in America, whre girls and boys are thrown eo frealy togethe-; where they marry when and whom they wish, and whera tha parents in many cases apparently hive littlj else to do with the ma'ter than to py tbe bills and try to shield the young hus band and wife from the consequences of their folly The man whom a girl would have married when she entered college is probably not the man whom she would marry when graduated frm college. This may result in tbe bread ing of some early engagement, but J ensrasrement that can ba broken would better be broken. The collee-e bred woman is also less likely to marry from ennui. Even if she is unfortunate enough to hava no definite work, af'er eh leaves eolleg , she has resources which cannot only p-event lifejfrom be eomiig a bore, but which can make it rich a -d satisfying. Neither will she be likely to sell herself for the sake of a home. She i- better eq Jpoedtosup port herself, if ncaseary. aud she has probably lost many sillv ideas she may have bad about the unladylikeness of honest b'ead-wion'.ng work. 'Finally, when she has be in won. she stands a much better chance of keeuinsr her husbaad's love and respect, because she stands a better chance of interesting him. " 'Men don't stay in their homes un less they find their homes entertaining,' sid a married woman of wide exper ience in the world, in talkin? about the education of her daughter. 'I tell my daughter that if she i ever U marry she needs to know something for two reasons; first to hold her husband's in terest; and second, to have within her self resources tint will make her hap piness, to a certain extent, independ ent of him; in which case he will be much more likely to stay in love with her.' "The stst'stics in regard to the mar riage of col ego women will not be com plete until we have also the statistics in regard to their divorce. The state ment has been made, whethentruly or not, that as yet no Vassar graduate has bee n divorced. Ofcourfe. all col lege romen are not interesting. any more than ae all college men; but the four years' compan'onship with 'noble thoughts' ought t i make one at least less stupid. "Mate tbe educated woman with the educated man and you have a probabi lity that they will continue to interest and love each other; that there will be intellectual companionship between them; and that each will hive sufficient prfspeet for the other's mental ability and mo""ai sanity to nike possible a government of th i homsand ths chil dren, not by 'manag.n-?'. each olhr, keeping clear of a pandering- to each other's folb'es and prejudices, but by frank and fearle a discussion a? to what is reasonable and right This is not ths condition of affairs in most homes. "The women of the higher education b-ing to motherhood, too, a better preparation than do those of smaller opportunities. The reasons for this are both physical and mental. They are, as a rule, older, phys'cally ma ture; and the opinion is hell by some physicians that, for the s ke of the physical perfection of the race no wo man should marry until she is 25. They have a wider kiowl 'd re of phy s ologicil and psychologica1 laws or they have the ability to acquire it which must bring forth btneScent fruit in the rearing of their crildren. They know -mTe profoundly the re sponsibilities of motherhood; and their realization of tne importance 01 aeiaus in the training of a child disposes them to look upon what might seem drudgery to other women as glorified, education al opportunity."

Our country man, Cap'ain Page, settled thi ques tion so conclusively that no further ef fort to utilize the Pilcomayo is likely 'o be made; and in th's work, that cot him bis life, for he died of his priva tions after beine hemmed in for mon'hs by hostile Indians, he devised a plan for steaming up-river when the water was so low that his vessel was stuck in the mud. He w 8 determined to go still further, though his little steamer, which drew oply eighteen inches, rest ed on the rlve'ribotvm; so behind the boat he threw up an embankment of earth clear across the channel, backed it with palm trunks and brushwood, and before long the water had risen a couple of feet, and the little Bolivia was able to go on her way fqtjr miles bafora she stuck again. Then another dam was built, and this process was re peated seven times, and with the aid of the dams the vessel advanced about thirty five miles above the highest point she could reach at tbe natural low-wter stage.

This story was told in he cable patches in tbe Tribune a ew days ago But not much is known of Patrick j i indie ter, except what is told in this stirring tale ot martial oravery. tie is a native of Inscb, Aberdeenshire, and beyond this he has no biography. It may be be is not a great musical artist. But he must have a Ftout heart and a lusty pair of lungs, else his pain ful wounds would have made his piping weak and cheerless long before the kilted battalion had reached the trenches at the top of the ridge. But Piper Findlater has a good tune to blow. "Cook of the north" is no or dirary melody, but a fierce, tempestu ous pean, written a century and a hBlf ft go, or there-abouts, in honor of the Duke of Gordon. It bears his fighting name by which he was known- the length and breadth of Scotland duriog his lifetime, about the middle of tbe last century, and it was intended to re present his warlike disposition- The "Gor-don' Highlanders" still bear the name of tkis hardy war chief tain. The original regiment was rais ed in 1794 by the Marquis of Huntley, his son, and about this circumstance is related a story of how tbe Duchess of Gordon, the mother of the Marquis helped at the rooruiting in the markets wearing ft regimental jacket and bon net, and offering the recruits what has been decr'.bed as "the irresistible bounty of a kiss and a guinea." The regiment distinguished itself on nearly every field where the English banners have been carried in Egypt. South -Africa, at Quatra Bras, and Waterloo. But it seems io have died out later, and some years since the pre sent organisation took the historic 1 TT TT 3 re- Dr. Junkers s Escape. Dr. Junker, the Russian explorer who did not see a white person for years while he was studying the natives and natural history of the upper Mo-bangi-Makua river, made use of an in genious expedient to get to the coast on his way home in 1886. He could not descend the Nile, for the Mahdists blocked the way. He could not fol low tbe beaten road by way of Vic toria Nyanza, for the Waganda and other tribes had been killing whites, and if tbey did not murder Junker they would at least detain him as pri soner. Arab traders would not take him in their caravans for fear they would lose the friendship of the native chiefs along the road. At last tbe doc tor went to one of the traders with this proposal: "You cannot take me with you as a friend," he said, "but you oan take me as a slave. Look at this." And Dr. Junker showed the trader an order written in Arable and signed by a well known firm in Zanzibar, authorizing tbe doctor to make any arrangements he desire with the Arabs of central Africa, and the firm would honor his drafts. "Now," continued Dr. Junker, "I have written out a contract, and if you will sign it with me I shall reach the roast. It provides that when you deliv er me alive at Zanzibar the sum of $1500 (Austrian thalers) will be paid to you by this firm. You cannot take me with you as a traveler or a friend, and you must therefore take me as a slave." Tbe bargain was made on this basis'. In passing through the hostile tribes the white man was represented to be a slave who had been tpurchased from a negro tribe further north. Ac a slave he passed muster even at the court of cruel King Mwanga, and was allowed to pass on in peace with his supposed master. From "Ingenious Pioneers," In Harper's Round Table.
