The Western Plowman very truly remarks. Now that ladies are so generally employed as stenogra phers, type-setters, and typewriter operators, the columns of newspa pers are burdened with coarse at tempts at humor, in which the pretty amanuensis and her alleged flirtations with the business man are the inspiring theme. Perhaps these jokes, on account of their in sipidity, are harmless, aud do not deserve the dignity of a remon strance, but nevertheless, we enter our protest against any attempt to place in a ridiculous or improper light the honest and worthy occu pation of a woman. All honor to the girl who has the energy and pluck and determination to qual ify herself to be self-sustaining and make herself useful in the great world of business, and blighting, withering, blasting shame be his portion who would place the slight est straw in her way. There are enough actual follies, weaknesses and foibles of men to laugh about without making innocent women the subject of ridicule by making them figure in incidents entirely the product of an .impure ination. The shafts of ridicule should be aimed only at those who deserve punishment, and there are enough of this class, God knows; and wit and humor lose their charm when indulged in at the expense of anything that is good and useful, A woman’s reputation is too del icate to be roughly handled, and any light treatment of her ocoupa * timi injures Her who is identified with it, A rumor has reached Washington that the arbitrators in the Behring Sea controversy between the Unit ed States and Great Britain, who ! have been in session in Paris since March last arguing in the case, had I decided in favor of the United States.
