TIIKKE is quite a difference between 3hina and America. A poor China man who had been helped by a mis- ionary showed his gratitude by pray ing that Buddah would turn him ( the hinaman ) into an ass , so that the missionary might ride on him in the next life. When a-/man helps us , however , we pray that he , not we , may be turned into an ass , that we may ride on him all our days.

"VVi : see the stale slander revived and going the rounds of the press that "women talk for the sake of tell ing what they know ; men for the sake of drawing out what others knowi" A long experience and ob servation and casual conversation with both sexes as much of which as pos sible has been devoted to the charm ing gentler class enables us to char acterize this silly tattle as. the sheerest rubbish. As a rule the talk of women AinoHg themselves is more instructive than that of men ; it is infinitely more free from vulgarity7 , gossip and vic- iousness. Women -meet together in o this city for example in the mainte nance of eight or ten commendable associations and societies , church and other. Their talk and chafc on such occasions is business-like , lady-like and instructive , pure and elevating. Of such social gatherings the men support one. Contrary to the general conception , men are more inveterate tattlers than women , and their pro miscuous talk is vile 'and filthy be yond all understanding. Men will tell and laugh over smutty stories by the hour a"nd lie awake nights trying tc invent new ones. They will reel ofl by the yard salacious yarns of theii personal experiences that are madt out of whole , cloth. There is a sing ular feature about the talk of men "When two are together they may con verse about solid matters in a sensible way , but the advent of of a third gen erally diverts the channel of talk iitc a dirty stream , and the accession oi one or two more invariably converts it into a cesspool. It is common tr sneer at woman's tongue , but its fruii to man has been solace , comfort and happiness. The man who believes o affects to believe in the superiority ol his debased kind to the other in wall or talk is a crank or a liar , and the Journal is happy to bear the burdei : of the statement. It is time this fus- ilade against the imaginary liglitnesJ of woman's mind should cease. If she have faults , they may all ie traced'te her unaccountable or unreasonable fondness for the coarse and gross creature we call man. Were he re moved from the scene of action , wo man would go through the work without spot or blemish. He oughi to be ashamed of and hate himself foi his detraction of the undeserved bless ing bestowed upon him , and the intti vidual who would scar a woman's ten der reputation with a foul tongu < ought to be sent scurrying instantei to the realms of Pluto.

Cow boys along the Oregon Short line now amuse themselves with the delightful recreation of perforating ; he cab windows of the engines run- ling on that line to the evident dis- : oiufort of their drivers. THE longest line of fence in the world will be the wire fence to extend from the Indian Territory west across : he Texas Panhandle and thirty-five iiiles into New Mexico * Its purpose is to stop the drift of the northern tattle. Tliis fence will be over 200 miles long. Ax a camp-meeting , last summer , a , venerable sister began the liymu ; "Jfy soul be ou tliy uura ; Teu thousand foes arise. " She began too high. "Ten thousand" she screeched , and stopped. "Start her at five thousand , " cried a convert ed stock broker present THE Woman's Tribune contains the following clipped specimen of "woman's quick intuition. " The edi tress's fruition of the same is doubt less genuine "An Austin candidate , who had a number of negroes employ ed on his place , liad an old musket in the house , which had been loaded for about three years. As he wanted to load it up for ducks , he called Jim , one of the negroes , to take the gun out into the yard and fire it off. 'Xo , don't let Jim fire that gun off. He is going to vote for you to-morrow , and the gun may burst and kill him. Tell Jake to take the gun and fire it off. I've got my doubts about how he is going to vote ! ' exclaimed the can didate's vrife _ with the quick intuition of a woman.1' A UKILLIAXT young man died in Atchison from excessive drink , and the Champion thereupon printed a. forcible and truthful temperance lec ture , taking the case of the unfortu- * natejoung man as its text. It said notliing to which an easy conscience could take exception , but a howl was raised by a class which felt that it had been reflected upon. "VVe are glad to note that the Champion has the manly courage of its convictions , and continues. If there is a curse in this day and age-that needs extermination , it is the habit of young men collect ing for the express purpose of en fag- ing in a drunken debauch , or " 'going on a bum , " as they delight to express it. Itiis often sthe case that 2. coteriu of this sort will select a young man who would otherwise remain sdber.v and will employ every possible.device until he has entered -fully into their degrading fellowship.
