HEROISM IN WOMEN.
Whenever a woman does some
courageous act not strictly in line
with woman's ordinary conduct, all
men hasten to pay her tribute.
If she ll'i-H mi imperilled train
with her red petticoat, takes a gun
to a burglar, or smashes a masher, as
wan done by a young society wo
men in I lie past few days, we
at. once go into high panegyrics
over her heroism.
At the head of Womanly heroism
in the admiration of the public are
tiie noble women who go as nurses
to the battle-fields and into fever
i n fee ted places. These are indeed
brave women and the field of oppor
tunity is one for which they seem
peculiarly fitted. Admiration
for them is genuine and resistible.
Hut is the selection of such ins
tances as then as '.. of womanly
heroism fair to women in gem-nil'.'
Not all women can Hag a train in
peril, or drive a burglar to cover, or
smash a masher. Most of them are
just homekeepers with homely tasks.
Are we to ignore the heroism with
which they perform these everyday
We go into eulogies over the wo
men who go as nurses to the held.-: of
carnage to soothe the dying. All
right hut what about tin- other wo
men who bravely s, in) husbands,
lovers, brothers, sons to he shot
All praise to the noble nurses w ho
go to the fever spots and heroically
stay to the end hut what of the
millions of mothers, wives, sisters,
sweethearts who would die rattier
than he dragged from the bedside of
their dying dear ones?
Who has ever counted the hpurs
that the mothers of the world have
spent in lonely vigil, when despair
pressed upon them and closed
'round about them like a midnight
JJid you ever hear of a mother
that failed, or forgot, or faltered?
Did you ever know one who would
not give all but hope of heaven to
nave the life that had flickered down
to a tiny spark?
These things are so common that
we take no note of them.
We are bo used to her ism in wo
men that we think nothing about it
until It presents itself spectacularly
lu some unusual form.

my memory as a hideous nightmare.
In the manufacture of sugar, the
green juice of the cane is gradually
heated in a trio of huge boilers, and
is ladled from one to the other of
these until, from the last and hot
test of them, the liquid is sucked in
to a vacuum pan, where it boils at a
low temperature and soon separates
into grains of sugar and molasses.
i'roui the vacuum pan this mixture
is drawn off into miniature tank cars

scum rises to tlie surface, which is
skimmed olf and emptied into a long
wooden trough, along which it flows
to another and larger tank, which is
sunk into the ground so that it
drains every part of the large build
ings. This receptacle ought to ill-)
terest "rum'' drinkers, because the
litling of it with what is not inaptly '
called "wash" is the llrst act iu the j
manufacture of rum.
Water thrown on the floor of any
room iu the buildings, ultimately
finds its way into it. That
is an arrangement for the there

I are dropped on every floor. This
I waste stuff with the continuous,
'dense steam from the pans, makes

to walk over, particularly so at night
j when one treads on a living carpet
'of roaches. The crunch of these un
derfoot and tiie incessant flight hi -tweeu
the lamp lights aud into one's
face, of large insects, apparently of
the same species, together, with the
somewhat leisurely moving away of
li..anls aud rats, make a night
round of the building anything hut
pleasant. Every morning at half
past live, hose pipes play on tlne
floors and many brooms swish the
water along, helping it carry its load
of sweetened filth (out of doors and
into the canal, one expects); not so,
but forward and down grade, until it
falls, like a small Niagara, into that
preparatory rum tank. The pan
skimmings would take a very long
time to fill that mighty receiver;
clean molasses being too high priced
to be put, there. During two years'
oversecrship I never saw a pailful of
molasses used tor rum making. The
night gangs clean up in this way be
fore they leave iu the early morn

it can be easily Imagined how
those Chinese who carry the sugar
all naked except the scantiest loin
cloth working hard iu that hot,
moist atmosphere, become more or
less coated over their yellow skins
with sugar. This they are carefully
prevented from carrying away with
them. There is a big faucet always
supplying warm water as condensed
from the steam oi ttie engines. Lu
der this faucet, each sugared celestial
has to stand, which the "driver" lets
go on each a copious sousing, before
lie is allowed to leave the building,
iiut, to the rum drinker, the real in
terest in these enforced baths must
be to follow the waste water there
from. He will And that it follows
gravity aud flows, as it must do, into
the rum tank.
To fully appreciate the loathsome
ness of the above practice it must be
further explained that these sugar
carrying Chinamen, probably from
the nature of their employment are
singularly, and wherever so em
ployed, subject to skin disease, nota
bly the itch
Perhaps the worst was reached on
pumping days, when this terrible
"wash" caldron was drained by
steam pumps. The great rose at
tached to the end of the hose lowered
into this see th lag inassof filth, often
gets clogged up, and the engine had
to stop until something is dragged
away with long handled grapples.
When about two feet from the bot
tom had been reached, a couple of
negioes climed down and began
shoveling out drowned rats in all
stages of decay, which could not be
reckoned by numbers as the majori
ty of them went to pieces as soon as
stirred at least 6 or 8 bushels. All

WHAT TOTEMISM IS.
Lls-at oi u latercatlair asd Llttlw
It Is Interesting tu note that totemisio
f found not only lu Alaska, but among
the North American Indiana, the abo
rigines of Australia, the Hottentots of
Africa and even the hill tribes of In
dia. Totems are also common ntnong
Broadly the totem Is tlie badge of a
clan or tribe, but It signifies a great
deal more than mere political or social
alliance. It la not only a tribal em
blem, but also a family sign; not mere
ly a symbol of nationality, but also
an eipntwlon of religion; not simply
a bond of union among primitive eo-ph-s,
but ttlao a regulator of the mur
rluge laws and of other social Institu
tions. A totetn lias been dofliiud as "a
class of material objects which a sav
age regards with superstitious respect,
believing that there exists bet-weeu
blin and every member of the class an
Intimate and special relation."
Among tlie ftjlbway Italians there
are no fewer than twenty-three differ
ent totems. Klue of these are quadru
peds, marking out the wolf, the benr,
the beaver and other clans, eight are
birds, five are fishes and one Is tiie
Some extraordinary superstitions re
garding totems prevail In Samoa. Thus
It, Is believed that If a turtle mao eats
of a turtle he will grow very ill, and
the voice of the turtle will lie beard In
his lusde saying: "He ate me. I am
killing him." If a banana lu.-n uses a
banana loaf for a cap be becomes bald.
If a butterfly man catches a butterfly.
It strikes blm dead. If a fowl man
eats a fowl delirium and death results,
and so on, all going to show that the
totem has something of the quality of
a fetich as well as the significance of
a family emblem.
Regarding totemlsm, it Is to be noted
tliat the relation of mutual help and
protection Includes also the totem It
selfthat Is to isy, It a man takes
care of bis totem be expects the to
tem to return the compliment If the
totem Is a dangerous animal It must
not hurt bis clansmen. The scorpion
men of Henegamma declare "that the
most deadly scorpions will run over
their bodies without hurting them.
There Is a snake clun In Australia
which holds to a similar belief. Among
ttie crocodile clan of the Bechuanas If
a man Is bitten by a crocodile or even
has water splashed on htm by one he la
expelled from ttie clan as one esteemwl
unworthy by the totem. Housekeeper.
