R"hy is it that oar lady poets ara so

they a better insight into the emo

that they all appear as if disposed to
play tlio part of strength and passion
rather than that of sweetness and grace.

A Curious Religions Colony.
In tho central part of Texas is located
the town of Bolton, where there is a cn
rions mligious colony of women known
as the "Sanctified Sisters." The chief
prerequisites to membership in this com
mnnity are a life of celibacy, a common
property and on isolated existence. The
original leader of this curious band is
Mrs. Martha McWhirter, a woman of
indomitable will. When she conceived
the idea tjf this colony, she was happy
with her husband and 12 children,
against whoso united protest she persist
ed in founding the society. This was 19
years ago, sines which time the society
has steadily grown in numbers and
wealth, chiefly through the efforts of
Mrs. McWhirter, whose execntivu and
business ability are indicated by tbe fact
that at present she is a member cf the
board cf trade end a director of the
opera houw syndicate of aBelton. The
membership, whit-h is now 83, includes
several women who formerly ocenpied
excellent positions in tbe social world.
Locrlla E. Williams.
Miss Lucelia E. Williams, the fonnder
of Hampton institute, died recently in
South Deerfield, Mass. Iu her earlier
life she was for 13 years in the employ
of the American Missionary association
ns a teacher in the south, fur one year at
Washington, ono year at Richmond, one
year at Beaufort, S. C, and for two
years at Hampton, Va. At Hampton
she, with ber sister, established the
Hampton Industrial institution, with 15
students. The number largely increased
while they had charge. This school, now
known as the General Armstrong school,
bas greatly prospered until at present its
pupils number several hundred, and it
is considered one of the best institutions
for the elevation of the negro and the
Indian in tho United States. Miss Wil
liams also established the Stanton insti
tute at Jacksonville, Fla., and with her
Bister, who is still living, labored there
for seven years with great success.

Are Women Aristocrats?
In Tho Woman's Magazine there is a
timely article on tho inherent feminine
love for all aristocratic forms. The
writer, Mr. William S. Walsh, says:
"American women are the enemies of
democracy, not only because they with
draw from democracy somo portion cf
the wealth which is power, but because
they confer that same wealth, that same
power, upon aa otherwise effete aristae
racy. Not content with allying herself
with foreign aristocracies, woman is fain
to introduce and to enforce a psnedo aris
tocracy into our own country. Now, if
woman is naturally and inevitably con
servative m temperament, what would
be the result of giviug her an increased
power in affairs? What would the ballot
do for her and for man and for tbe cause
of progress which is dearest to the heart
of man? '
