And father aud mother and auuty Must hurry and come to sec. Se baby the cute little darling! Is pnt through the wouderful feat, And foudelvd, aud kiaaod, and cowmen For being so smart and so aweet. With the ennningest air of triumph She stands Iu the midst af all, While the outstretched arm of her mother Is ready to save a fall ; And wheuever tbe little one totters, Around Ler hastily thrown. Tin very flue fun, thinks the baby, This frolic of standing alone t Ah! many a time in the future She'll long for the aid of that arm, When the love aud care of that mother No longer can shield her from harm! For oft when oar need is the eoreet There is no oue to whom we can turn And standing aloue ia a lesson That is hard for a woman to learn.

Woman's Sphere as Defined by Woman. CArT. WOODS AND OTHERS RE VIEWED BY A MISSISSIPPI WO MAN" ACTIONS SrEAK LOL'DER THAN WORDS." Editor Democrat-Star: I seud you an nrticlo clipped from an exubungc, which is so far uest, eo just, and so true, tbut 1 thought a portiuti of it, nt least, should bo rt-iiublisbcd iu all our papens and ask you to start the wheel rolling by giving it a place iu 'your paper, which reaches so many who ought to bo interested a this all important subject, and I would add my mi to iu favor of bet ter laws in regard to publio schools. In this community, numbering about eighteen hundred, we have public school about four months in every three years, when wo ought to have a good school, with at least two competent teachers, nine months in every year. What is the matter 1 It muBt be deficient legis lation. I am told that this little place pays enough liquor license to support such a school. Uf we must endure the evil, by all means let us have the benefits also. Will uot our able representative cou aider this, and let the thought of the number ot poor cbildreu who till our streets ay! even adults, uice, respectable, but poor people among us, wno can neituer reau or write fill his heart witft diriue pity, that will overflow iu " Words that breathe aud thoughts that burn," until tho halls of our State capitol will ring with his eloquence, aud the hearts of our wise legisla tors be moved to noble deeds, that will, like "bread cast upon the waters." return to bless them ere many days iu a happy, prosperous, intelligent people. SENNE, Editors Clarion i Havins read tho earnest words of Cant Woods, of Meridian, on the subject of Woman's Kights and Wrougs, I ask space iu tho Clarion to sav a few words from a woman's standDoint. Whilst the women of tho laud are. no doubt, deeply grateful to Capt. Woods for his manly defense, and for his eloquent anoeal in their behalf, yet I would respectfully suggest that something more is needed. The ladies are annually treated to similar orations, by distinguish ed speakers, from the lostrums of female colleges, and iney are do giuning to realize that more is re quisite iu this matter tuan mere eloquent speeches. They recog nize the scriptural truth that "faith without work is dead," and, not withstanding all the fine talk that has been indulged iu, matters run on in the same old rut uo schemes for higher education are advanced, and there is no perceptible widen- iug of woman's sphere. Just here, since there Is some controversy as to what is womau's sphere, let me say that I agree fully with Capt. Woods iu all that bo Bays in regard to the education of woman that she should be so educated as to fit her for any of tho pursuits of lilo she may euooso to follow. She must not, however, choose to eutcrthe puipit, because an inspired apostle has said, "Let your wonieu kee; silence iu tho churches. Nor cau she cuter the political arena, iu Mississippi, or any other State, without unsexiug herself. As well might Shylock take his pound of tJesb aud shed no drop ot blood ad could w oman enter into politics without losing that "grace, delicacy, gentleucss and purity" which reuder her su premely attractive and 'distinct ively femiuiue," Woman is but humau after all, aud with her quick sensibilities, in the excited political contest, the flashing eye, the bitter retort, and even tbe clenched fist, might too often attest her intense earnestness. Woman is fitly aud best repre sented at the ballot-box by father, husband, sou or brother, aud the country das uot suflered more iu all these years by the government being confined exclusively to mas culine hands than it would in fu ture if woman was dragged iuto the slums of political life. Now, goutleuieu, to your record. You who agree so unanimously, npon college rostrums, that woman needs aud deserves higher educa tion, what have you done (not said) to attest your siucentyl You, Captain Woods, of Meridian, the author of the latest published ap peal in behalf of tho fair sex, what have you ever dono (uot said) to secure the higher education of the women ot Mississippi t I demand of Senator Lamar, of w hom nil his country-women are justly proud, who, in the summer of 1S79, ad dressed one of our largest female colleges most eloquently upon the mental equality of tho noses what scheme has Senator Lamar ever originated (uot talked of) for the higher education ot Mississippi's daughters T So we might take them all, and find that while much has beeu said nothing has beeu dono to se cure our women that intellectual training and consequent sclt-do-pendruce which they bo much ueed and desire. oianciugover the past we nre forced to conclude that it is to the rcligiou of Jesus Christ that wo man owes everything. Even now, were it not tor tho iotuale schools founded by the different churches, woman would bo, intellectually, ul most in the semi-twilight of the Dark Ages, The Stato of Missis sippi and I say it to her shame seems thus far to have repudiated the idea that her daughters possess mental capacity beyond what the common schools can develop. It is claimed by some that education and intellectual training unfit wo man for the duties ot her lot. Does education destroy pride t Because woman Is educated would she be content with unkempt hair, uu swept floors, aud uutidy garuientst Away with such a proposition. Men of Mississippi! the time has come tor action. We nave had enough ot earnest words aud fine spun theories. We want, now, earnest, prompt, and vigorous ef toit. iou who compose the legis lature of oar State, aud lock and guard her treasury ; you who up propriate thousauds annually to the supitort ot universities and schools for the white males and colored race it is high time to establish, at least, one school for the educa tiou ot the white females of this State. Take some of the money which womeu pay iuto the treus ury as taxes, aim tounu tor us an institution where book-keeping, telegraphy and typography can bo taught a normal school of art music aud mathematics, where wo men nan be fitted and trained for a remunerative and independeut lite work. Do this, or else forever hereafter hold your peace iu regard to womau's rights aud wrongs. Do this or else say to woman in words as you doin actious, "Go and be a druge go to the nursery, the sewing-room and kitchen, aud there only find your appropriate place." A Mississippi WOMAN. The Dual Government Kemper Horald. The idea of old lien King and Lis crowd talking about setting op a government of their own at Jack sou; but then it snows now revoiu tionarv the radical party is, and to what extent they would go for power. Ofoourso"OIdBeu" aud his crowd thought they would got support from the Federal govern ment siuce the stalwarts have re gained the asceudoncy, aud vis ions of Federal troops marching up and down in our State capital floated bofore their eyes. Of course Arthur would not dare re cognize "Old Ben and his follow ers, aud it be did, the sons of Mississippi would make It so hot for them that they would not like ly enjoy tho offices long. Federal iiitert'eranco in State aflairs is a thing of the past, and Southern radicals might as well understand it ouce aud tor all. NOTES BY THE WAY. MORE ANON. Grenada, .Miss., where in 187S the yellow fever raged so tearfully, was iu oveinber last visited by some one hundred and fifty minis ters of the North Mississippi con ference. The sessiou lasted soma sixteeu days. The town seemed quite lively, stores were snpplied ith full stocks, cotton seemed to be abundant, everybody appeared iu good spirits and hopeful of the future. I) n rant sod Lexington are to be linked by iron bauds iu the near future. The brauch road from Du rant to Kosciusko is to be extended towards Aberdeen. These east aud west feeders or branches of the New Orleans, St Louis and Chica go railroad will develop the coun ties through which they pass and materially add to tbe business of the county. I found the Yicksburg and Meri dian railroad In splendid coudilion something new for that road. Our traiu passed over without the slightest mishap or loss of time. Meridian has the promise of a bright future. There is scarcely an hour of tho day or night but iu which your cars, are greeted with the escape of steam from compress oil mills or locomotives. The com pressing of cotton allows of its ship ment direct to Lngland by North ern seaports. The completing of the Cincinnati Great Southern from Meridian to New Orleans promises great things for tho "Cow counties" of Missis sippi. Already the work, of gra ding has beeu let lout and a date fixed for the road to be finished. The Alabama Central railroad is now in first-class condition. Koad bed, rails and cars, all are in splen did order. Inclining car seats ob viate the .the need of a sleeping birth, This road runs through the farmer's "Black belt" of land; but alas for the crop of 1881, it has beeu almost a failure. Alabama has limo rock sufficient to supply tbe United States with liuie. You can see the rock crop ping out ou every side. The towns along the route look desolate, buildings and fences are iu poor repair, uupainted, aud lacking even in whitewash. The Bigbee river is crossed on a substantial iron bridge, the same may be said of the Ala bama river east of Selma. Selma, Ala., is a charming little city on the west bank of the Alaba ma river, aud stretching out with her iron bauds iu venous direc tions. Tho streets are wide and quite level. The soil is very sandy remindiiiL' one of the seaside. Ar tesian wells abonud, that force an unlimited supply of water to the secoud story of dwelliug-honses, Some of the wells terminate near the surface aud give a bountiful supply for man and beast. Steam boats ply regularly between there and Mobile. Coal is used for fuel, at cheap rates. Cotton factories are springing up. Trosperity, thrift and enterprise greet you at every turn. The recent invest tuont of capitalists in the coal and irou regions close by, have quick ened the business pulse of all Ala baraa. The Alabama conference of the Southern Methodist church, closed a sessiou at Selma on the 5th. A fearful railroad accidont oc curred on the eveuing of the 5tb. on the Selma and New Orleans railroad, by which three men were killed. Tuesday at 12 m. I took pnssage upon the steamboat Lucy A. Uaa trell, commanded by Capt. Lyons, bound for Mobile Tho Alabama river Is flauked on both sides with clifts of limestone reck solid rock, looming upward in Borne places for fifty, sixty and one hundred feet from the water's edge. Tho cotton bales come slL ding down an incline plane, almost perpendicular, with terrific speed and force, to the boats bolow. Clai borne's blofl is said to be largely composed of marl, ia which are found many extinct mon.jt cr bones of the pre historic period. I was surprised to learn of but oue towu beiug immediately npon the river between Selma and Mobile. Ca haba has the honor; but, alas, her glory has departed siuce tbe advent ot railroads. There is a $70,000 building there, that I am told, can be purchased for $3,000. have been charmed with tbe ro mantic views along the river, and highly gratified at the courtesy and kindness of all tbe officers and crew ol the Lucy A. uastreu. Here you do not hear the profanity aud reckless bluster that never fails to greet your ears on the Mis sissippi river boats. In due time Mobile appears iu sight, and the eveuing mailtraiu bears me home A Powerful Temperance Lecture, Raymond Gazette. Just two years ago the writer . aa . a. t. was in the towu oi i-ors uioson, and mot a gentleman whose name was familiar to many of our read- era. At tue ucciutuug oi tue utie .... a .1 . 1.1. war. then a mere Btnppliug, fresh from college, he entered tho army, and bv eallaut Bcrvico came out colonel, but broken iu health, tbe result of a wound in me stomacn. Entering the editorial areua in 1800, he labored unceasingly, nntil his name was a svnonytu of brilliancy The demon driuk here grasped Lit hand, and led on, on to the asy lum at Jackson. There he remain ed for a tiumber of years, until rea son acaiii asserted he sway, wln-p he again returned to tue tripou, braving danger In editiug a daily newspaper in a city besiged with the pestilence that swept over the South in 1878. After it subsided he retired to privatlifoe, honored tor hii nobility of character, admired for his courage, revered tor his tal cuts, and beloved by those who stood with him in the beat of bat tle, when death was stretching forth its nruiR, drawing ou the young and old. A gathering of his companions iu arms was held, and here it was we met him on tho occasion above referred to. Magnificent in ap pearance, manly in his beariug, he cantiviited all. For the future his prospects were bright, aud ho painted them iu glowing colors. Two mouths later we were bein? shown through tho asylum at Jackson, Up the aislo ofoneoftho wards comes a pre maturely aged man, his arms fold ed across his breast, his face care wort), his vacant stare riveted upon tho floor. This looks like poor Tom, can It possibly be him! The guide explains that it is he, but, Oh God 1 what a change the few short weeks intervening have worked 1 We addressed him, but he simply shakes bis head, aud con tinues to walk. Again the truth flashes over us. Tbe brilliant mind that once ruled so grandly j tho reasoning powers that had been wont to cast a Bm11 over all hear ers, had vanished, like a a momen tary dream. Another month passed by, and with it the spirit of the hero went to the God who gave it This is no faucy sketch, but a truthful epitome of what actually occurred. We werewell ncquaiutcd with the subject of the above sketch, and know the above to be true. The gentleman alluded to was rear ed in Yicksburg, and was long au editor in that town, where be was buried. Ed. . A Kcmarkablo Case. Moridian Mercury. Last Saturday morning about 1 o'clock Mr. Sam Stevens, who was on the police force of this city, was taken sick la a peculiar ana Biugu lnr manner, i. e., when he went to take a driuk ot water he would have muscular retchings and spasms aud so continued to heave up to tue time ot death last night about eight o'ciock whenever any fluid was presented. Un could eat salids of almost any sort, sweet po tatoes for iustanoe. The only way he could take fluids would be through a stomach tube and in this way the doctors gave him water and beef tea to keep blra np if pos sible. A majority of the doctors most ot whom saw him, atone time or anotherSunday and yesterday, agree in Baying, that the only hy pothesis upon which to base an opinion of tho case is that tho symptoms all poiut to hydrophobia as the disease he had, although Mr. Stevens nor any of his family or friends ever remembered of his having been bitten by a dog, "eat or rat, cither of which animals can nml sometimes do communicate hy drophobia.

It is known that a sick dog is as dan gerous in that way as one already mad with rabie. T bins Handy t Know Measure 209 feet on each side, and you will have a square acre within au inch.

Benjamain, who was the Secretary ot State wheu the Con federate bonds were issued, says there is no money on deposit in England or elswherejto the credit of the Confederate States, and the bonds that are being extensively brought up in this conn try can have no possible value.
