matter that will seal as ruined, lives only
just looking toward manhood. They must
suffer the penalty the law inflicts, but that
they brought this penalty upon their
own heads, does not relieve the shocked
pained feeling that pervades the community
regarding them.
Not long since we alluded to the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Now we allude with pleasure to a society
in New York, formed for the “Prevention
of Cruelty to Children?’ This society has
issued an appeal to the public for funds.
Since its establishment—ah, pitiful thought!
of the little homeless children—this society
has sheltered, clothed and fed one thousand
four hundred and sixty children. The
little tender, homeless waifs, forsaken or
bereft, and without supplies of any kind.
Dear charity, let the animals stand awhile
on their four legs and wait, for they have
warm coats about them, but the little
ragged innocent babes, surely they must be
cared for by a land full of generous hearts.
Can one wish to invest money better than
o care for the helpless? Let some then,
send their charity to the New York
“Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Children.”
Mrs Julia Ward Howe, who has so
heartily gone to work for the women of
Massachusetts, left Boston last week for
New Orleans. Mrs. Howe, who possesses
great intellectual powers, with also a rare
faculty for organization, has the appoint
ment of President of the Woman’s Depart
ment of the New Orleans Exposition. In
order to carry her plans through effectually
she has appointed a staff of ladies as her
personal assistants. Froni the assignment
of duties to these ladies, we can judge how
systematic an arrangement Mrs. Howe is
perfecting for the Woman’s Department.
The ladies of this staff are Mrs. E. W.
Ordway, of Jamacia Plains, Mass., Science
department; Miss Maude Howe, Boston,
Literary department; Miss Isabel Greeley,
Concord, N. H., Superintendent of sales;
Miss Marion Mcßride, Boston, Superin
tendent of press work; Miss Josephine
Chester, Commissioner from Washington,
D. C.; Mrs. S. P. Clondman, Boston, Gen-
Subscription, ft 00 a Year
eral Superintendent; Mrs. H. S. S. Wol
cott, Boston, General Manager. These
ladies will have a general supervision of
the Woman’s Department. Their labors
and records will require time and ability.
May they meet with the success and con
sideration they deserve.
The women of our state will, we trust,
pay special attention to the exhibit in their
department at the World’s Exposition.
Women of all creeds and denominations
are working as a unit toward advancing
the cause of women’s industry, learning,
position and attainments in the states to
which they owe their alegiance. In our
own state those who have been appointed
by the exposition commissioners, certainly
labor under a great disadvantage, for there
is too little enthusiasm amid the women
of the state in this important opportunity,
perhaps the most important that the nine
teenth century has offered to woman as an
individual. At this exposition she is solic
ited as a learned, thoughtful, original being,
to show the skill and result of her learn
ing, to exhibit the plans and products of
her thought. To place before the world
in short, the original designs, inventions
and labors of her brain. That she has a
brain the managers of the New Orleanl
Exposition allow as a fact. No halting
consideration is given to excellent en leav
ers, by these gentlemen. No annex at a
short distance holds off as a caste the spir
ited and capable exertions of a proud soul.
But with the endeavor of the citizen so is
the endeavor of the citizeness welcomed
side by side in the department of each
state. Ah, women of Arkansas, can you
not see why our lady commissioners are
laboring with unremunerated zeal. They
are not willing to admit that our women
are less capable than their co-laborers of
other states. They are laboring to bring
forward education, capacity and industry
to its true position.
Asks a medical adviser, “Did she die?”
We take pleasure in announcing that she
did not, she threw the stuff out of the win
dow.
