This ia no imasinarr adTertiscment.
It la a rentable atateinent of what one
retiring man hopea to find in hit life
partner a frank, outspoken summary
of what be considers indispensable to
happiness. He didn't aav anvtbinir
about what she might expect in re torn.
oeyona intimating that be would be
willing to keep her in coal and kin
dling, let her have a new gown now and
again ana give her ample opportunities
for athletio development in bringing
order out of his chaotic surroundings.
There was one point on which he was
very firm, stern even, and that was,
"No Questions!" Be said he'd spend
his money as he liked, come and go
when be liked, stay oat as late as he
liked, and come home when, how or in
what condition ho liked, without pot
ting in an excuse with his appearance.
He gave his audience to understand that
he could say sweet things if be wanted
to, but wasn't going to depreciate their
value by lavishing them. The melting
mood came on in the glow of the fire
kindled by her fair hands.
Among those who listened to this one
man's wants was a woman a timid,
tearful, humble mortal, who didn't dare
say anything, but some way her thoughts
turned to a tombstone she had seen in
a city cemetery. ' It was a rather pre
tentious slab, and across the top was
blazoned man's name, and down be
low, as if shrinking away even in mar
ble, a woman's Christian name, with
the farther inscription, "Wife ot the
above mentioned. " He wasn't dead at
all such men generally do survive
but he couldnt let her have even a
tombstone to herself, so he put her away
down in the corner and filled the pub
lic eye with his own personality. That
was the end of a truly humble woman.
Fortunately Nemesis in the form of
a second wife overtook that man, and
let ns hope it may in this other case,
where so much is expected in return for
"board and keep." It would be amus
ing to go into details on each require
ment, but it couldn't be done in less
space than 100 pages, so we must con
tent ourselves in following np the first.
Aotr, it sometimes happens that a
woman who is all humility and defer
ence before marriage develops startling
self assertion immediately after, and
the man who started out with the inten
tion of addressing her as "Yon therel"
finds himself saying, "Ma'am," a
month after the ceremony. He gives
np every penny he earns and gets bis
tobacco motiey doled oat, carries coal,
runs to the grocery, shakes the rugs,
sifts the ashes, peels the potatoes, and
crawls off to business with his erstwhile
haughty spirit limpcr than his linen.
When a half hour late on the borne ran,
it is pitiful to contemplate bis mental
agony as he cudgels his brain for ex
cuses and finally concocts a fairy tale
that very properly collapses under a
scathing, "Row, Tom, don t tell me!"
And he doesn't tell her he just hooks
his heels in the rang of a chair to brace
himself, pulls himself together and takes
it, registering a mental vow to knock
down the first fellow who talks of hu
mility as a fetching feature in woman,
lovely woman. Mary B. U 'Sullivan

Why t,ncy Stane 2? ever Tata.
Mrs. Luck Stone BlackwelLtbe great
apostle of woman's rights and the cham
pion of the ballot for woman, never
voted.
This declaration will no doubt as
tonish many persons, and may perhaps
be denied I'" some, bat my authority for
tbe statement is none other than Lucy
Stone herself.
About a year ago, on the day, or one
of tbe days, on which the suffragists
were holding tbeir annual convention
in the Tark Street church, Boston, 1
called to ace this famous woman on
business connected with tbe work. In
cidentally some remark drew from her
the declaration that abe did not vote.
Why?" was my very natural and in
stant reply, serving the double purpose
of expressing surprise and inquiry.
"Oh, they will not let lue vote, be
cause my name is not on the voting
lists."
"But why do you not register?" 1
asked.
"I have tried to register, but the
board of registrars will not put my
name on the lists. They wish to put
my name down as they say it should
be. They wish me to swear that my
name ia Lacy titoae Black well, and to
sign Jt that way, but I cannot do that,
yon know, as that woald not be right.
X believe I know my name, and how it
mould be written, but they think they
know it better than I do. So, yon see,
unless I will sign my name as they
direct they will nut permit me to vote."
So Mrs. Blackwell was deprived of
ber right of suffrage because three men,
drawing $3,000 each per annum, set
themselves np as judges of her name.
Bather than yield what abe considered
a vital principle, she declined to exer
cise the great right ot raff rage, for
which she had fought all her life. .
1 am told, Irowever, that she aid fro-
juently sign legal papers with' the foil
name Lucy Stone BlackwelL - I do
oot know whether or not this ia true,
but I presume she would have to sign
Seeds and each documents with that, if
any, if she signed at all. Boston Her

I have believed in woman suffrage
for maay years," said William Dudley
Fonlke of Indiana, the prominent civil
service reformer.
Certainly if suffrage be a right ev
ery argument which justifies it for men
is equally strong for women. They
have property to protect. They are sub
ject to the laws and may be panished
for breaking them in the same way that
men are. Why, then, should they have
no voice in making the laws A repre
sentative government ought to represent
every phase of thought which exists in
the whole body of the people. It ought
to reflect the opinions of women as well
as or men. A government derives its
just power from the consent of the gov
erned, yet women are governed without
their consent."
Would any considerable number of
vote if they had the right?"
"Yes, within a short time I think
they would vote almost as generally as
men do. As soon as the right of suffrage
to conferred it brings along duty with
it, and if it was conferred on women
they would feel that they ought to vote.
and they will not fail to give their suf
frages to those things which they believe
will benefit their country. Where
woman suffrage has been tried, as in
Wyoming, and for a short time in the
state of Washington, it has been found
that women take an active interest in
elections. Women are not less patriotic
than men are, and the lack of interest
which they have shown has been rather
the result of exclusion from suffrage
than from any lack of aptitude for po
litical affairs."
Mr. Foulko said ho believed general
female suffrage will be established some
day.
Tho Spotted Veil Habit.
"The spotted veil habit will have to
have its asylums or gold cures or
something," said an oculist lately. "Its
victims increase constantly, and they
seem to be as devoid of will power to
resist the mania as is the devotee of any
evil practice. Intelligent women come
to me to be treated for eye troubles that
in some cases are wholly produced by
the use of the spotted veil, and in others
seriously aggravated. The harm is
more perceptible now than formerly.
for women wear veils almost incessant
ly. At the theater, at social afternoons.
at church, everywhere almost, you will
see the covering film of lace. I've
questioned my wife, who is as bad as
any of you, and sho says it is posi
tively necessary; that one 8 hair flies
and various disagreeable things happen
if the veil is left off, so I suppose it will
have to be worn, eyes or no eyes. At
least, however, wear one without dots.
or with them so far apart that one need
not come within eye range. "
To which caution another may be
added to lift the veil, whatever its
texture, when reading in transit. It is
a common sight to sco women in the
elevated cars and suburban trains ab
sorb themselves in a book or paper for a
40 minute trip without raising their
veils. The motion of the vehicle and
the shifting uncertain light are in them
selves a serious tax npon the sight, to
which it is unnecessary to add the fur
ther burden of even a plain veil. Her

A Promising Career Ended.
Kb more touching story of hope and
ambition cut short can be found than
that of Miss Mary Yeargin who was
drowned in Cayuga lake, Kew York, re
cently. She was a self made woman, and
the story of her struggles for an educa
tion is well known here. Her father ia
a one armed ex-Confederate soldier and
a farmer of Laurens county. lie was
unable to send his daughter to a college,
bet she was determined to obtain an ed
ucation. He owned a gin and had
been employing a colored man as an en
gineer. Miss Yeargin asked him to let
her run tbe engine and to give her the
salary given the colored man. He
consented, but with some doubts of her
ability to fill the position. Ho was
soon gratified to find that she was fully
capable of acting aa engineer. She soon
accumulated enough money to attend
tbe Methodib-t college in this city, from
which she . graduated. After teaching
in tho college for some time sho weut

about a year. She wanted to go higher.

A White Uresainc Table.
Avery pretty toilet table seen re
cently at one of our large shops and in
tended for a young girl's room was fin
ished entirely in white, the entire frame
being covered with double faced white
canton flannel. The mirror was a large
square one. Across the top was a broad
band of finely plaited dotted swiss mus
lin, caught at each-curm r with rosettes .
of white grosgrain ribbon. Tbe side
draperies were trimmed with narrow
ruffles of the muslin ana the lower part
with tbe muslin laid in large box plaits,
finished at tbe upper edge with a quill
tug of ribbon. Over the top of the
table was a cover of the muslin lined
with white silk and finished with five
rows of narrow white ribbon. This
was made as a sachet and perfumed
with orris powder. The pincushion
which was to accompany this table was
a large one of white silk and muslin.

The Waltham watchmaking estab

World's fair said ot them, "In many
lines of the work women are superior to
men, and In all lines of the work wumeta

if that very superintendent needed a

woald select for the place some stripling

It is said that Lady Jeune, who has
written so much on the "con" side of
the soeiery question, can seldom stray
beyond tho limits of a short sentence
without endangering her grammar. She
has written a preface for a new volume
about women, and unfortunately suffers
some of her worst literary shipwrecks
in trying to express her appreciation
for the work of women authors and j
journalists. Exchange.
Hlse Wlllnrd's Sister.
Miss Frances Willard has published
a biography of her sister, who died at
the age of 19. Mary Willard seems to
have been a gentle, amiable girl of del
icate health and pious mind. In spite
of her religious tendencies she had an
inordinate fear of death. The critics
seem to be puzzled that so gentle
character should have been so keenly
loved and missed by a woman of Miss
Willard's caliber.
