Tim Triiiini lends Christmas fjrce'ongs to ech and every reader, ami wihe tor them the tome pleasure in the annual return of thia sacred festival, that the propri etors enjoy. With us Christmas has always been n pleasant memory. From earliest childhood we have greeted its annual return with inexpressible delight, whether in the log cabin on the newly opened farm, in the more pretentious palatial dwelling, among the slave holding aristocracy, in the halls of learning, in the city full or in the quiet of our own well chosen home, whether among strangers or well known companions, at home or abroad, the return of Christmas has always been to us a time of re joicing. We always did love our friends, and if we ever had any enemies we never thought enough of them to hate them. So Christmas with us has always been a (rood time, bo may it be with you, dear reader, always and ever. Whether you have much or little, rejoice, and make this Christmas one long to be remembered by yourself, your fam ily and your friends. Be on the giving and forgiving hand. Eat, drink and be merry, "let joy be un- " confined," and make everybody else feci glad. Capt. J, D. Allen, of the Butler Times, has concluded not to be a. candidate for the nomination for Secretary of State, before the next Democratic State Convention. He has concluded to leave the track clear for his friend, Sam. A. Cook Well enough, we reckon. While there is so much kicking on the river Improyment scheme, we publish in this "issue some interest ing correspondence, (some what old, 'tis true, but still 'twill serve) that may start much thinking in an other direction. Read it carefully and see what you think ot it Mr Citizen. whether you favor or oppose present plans. I'rnttrea V. rrcjurttcei. Rev, Dr. Mougan Pix, pustnr ol Trinify church, New Voik, in niir terview ipon M subject which sit mi to be causing him trouble, vii. 'WcJ man" is reported tm have said; "I am sick At bcatt over the wo man. Men used to irjurd woman with such reverence. When I was a bey all boys of generous spirit looked up to her. In these d.iys the woman have come dovvo to our level, tbey were womanly and now Ihey ceasing to be. Nowadays they talk like men run! do all things that men do. If there is anything that men despise it is a mannish woman. All this comes from lenving tlie womanly things of life and invading the sphere of men. Woman shoulJ never vote or be dobtors, lawyers or ministers." It is safe to say that Dr. Dix is no more sick at heart over the woman than the women are sick at heart over such men as he who fought every step in the progress of woman from i learning to read and write to having the ballot. One 'NvguIJ im agine from the utterances of some of these men that the acme of all evil was doing anything like a man. Had Dr. Dix lived a century ago he would have written as did Dr. Gregory who was considered stand ard authority at that time upon fe male propriety. In his book enti tled, "Legacy to My Daughters," he said: "If you happen to have any learning, keep it a profound se cret, especially from men, who look with a jealous malignant eye on a woman of a cultured understanding. He also said "Should you happen by nature to possess a robust con stitution assimilate such sickly del icacy as :s necessary to the female charm." In strong contrast to these utter ances of Dr. Dix we are cheered by those of Rev. Dr. Newell Dwight Ilillis, pastor ot Plymouth church, Brooklyn given at about the same time. Dr. Ilillis said in part:- "Women in spite of man's refus al to give them the rights and privi leges to which they are entitled, are today in 145 branches of business and in instances showing more abil ity than the men." In fifty years the wemen will know more than the men. They have more time to reae and study and tbey are improving their time Eventually they will vote themselves and tell the men whom to vote for. There is a lesson of rebuke in this tor men. 'Eventually all the universities will be co-rdiiciitiontl, and the vo nun wili oniy iff nil Jihe pii.es. 'i hill's vlaMl(y nte fifmitl o in the colli i,: s whit h will not allow women. The women study while the young men ore rd'icntmg the calves of their legs. The women are writing our novels) the best portrait painter in n woman iccent ly a woman took the highest possi ble priate in irtnthcmnlics." Had it not been for the few gen erous and noble men like Dr. Ilillis, who have ever stood icady to uccord to women equal rights and opportu nities with themselves it is doubt ful if women could have arisen out of the ignorance and subjected posi tion which they occupied in this country no longer than 100 years ago. Elnora Monroe Uabcock. The appointment of Thos. J. A kins, Chairman of the Republican State Central Committee, Assistant Treasurer of the United States tor St. Louis is a well merited reward for a faithful, persistent and untir ing worker for the party's interests It is a just recognition of a capsbl man whose conduct in office will show that he serves bis party best who serves his country best. The talk of nominating Cyrus I Walbrtdge for vice president next year is all right and we hope such recognition of the state casting th f i fit) largeat republican vote in t! country will be taken, but we much prefer to have him head the State Republican ticket for Governor He is one of the first citizens of the state. A man of excellent executive adility, pure, clean and true s th needle tu the pole. Upon him all elements of the party can unite and present to the enemy a solid frout With him as standard bearer an ag gressive fight can be waged with every hope of success. The Dein ocrats will not nominate Folk, an less their machine can contioll him and if they do Walbridge can beat him or any other man they nominate Subscribe Now for Th TRIBUNE. $1.00.
