My Dear Sir; Would It Wo asking too much for ma to request a orici repiy tu uuo u, mu questinns, which many other married women as well as myself would like to hare answered f "I havo been married now for five years. To-day is the anniveisary of my marriage. When I was single I was a teacher and sup ported myself in comfort. 1 had more pocket money and dressed fully as well, if not better than 1 do now. Why should girls who are abundantly able to earn their own liylehood struggle to become the slave of a husband and children and tie themselves to a man when she might be free and happy ? 'I think too much is said by the men in a light and flippant manner about the anxiety of young ladies to secure a home and a husband, and still they do deserve a part of it, as I feel that I do now for assuming a great buiden when I was comparatively independent and comfortable. "Now, will you suggest any advice that yon think would benefit the yet unmarried and self-supporting girls who are liable to make the same mistake that I did, and thus warn them in a manner that would be so much more uni versal in its range and reach so many more people than I could if I should raise my voice ? Do this, and you will be gratefully remembered by Ethel. It would indeed be a tough, tough man wno could ignore tho gentle plea, Ethel; tougher far than the pale, Intellectual hired man who now addresses you in his private and under bid maimer. Yoa -say that you had more pocket money be fore you were married tbaa you have since, Ethel, and you regret your rash step. I am sorry. You also say that you wore better clothes when you were single than you do now. You are also pained over ibut. It seems that marriage with you has not paid any cash div- IrlAnrta fin ,f n, murripri Mr Kthf-1 AB a finan cial venture, it was a mistake. Yoa do not state how it has anected your nnsuanu. i-er- . 1. .. I. n . 1 jwn nmilra, ltinnfV And tlP.iDnr clothes before be married than he has since. Sometimes two people do well In business by themselves, Dut wncn mej aju iuuj iniicinUiH tbey bust higher than a kito, if you will allow me the full English translation of an expreaj sion which you might not fully underntand if I should give it to you in the oriainal Roman. , . . Lots of self-supporting young ladies have married, and have had to go very light on pin money after that, and still they do not squeal as you do, dear Ethel. Tbey did not marry for revenue only. They married for protection. This is a little political bon mot which I thotight of myself. Some of my best jokes this spring are jokes that I thought of my self No, Ethel, if you married expecting to be a dormant partner during tbe day and then to go through Mr Ethel"s pockets at night and declare a dividend, of course life is full of bit tar, bitter regret and disappointment. Of course I want to do what is right In the solemn warning business, so I will give notice to H simple young women wuo ore uuw ou supporting and happy, tbat theie is no statute requiring them to assume the burdens of wife hood and motherhood unless tbey prefer to do so. If tbey now have aoundance of pin money and new clothes, they may remain single if tbey wish without violating the laws of the land. This rule is also good when applied to self supporting young men who wear good clothes and have funds in their pockets. No young man who is free, happy and indopen dent "need invest his money in a family or carry a colicky child twenty-seven miles and two laps in the night unless he prefers it. But those who go into it with the right spirit, Ethel, do not regret it. I would just as soon tell you, Ethe', if you will promise that it shall .go no further, that I do not wear as good clothes as I did before I was married. I don't want to. My good clothes have accomplished what I got tbem for. 1 played tliem for all they were worth, and since I got marriod tbe idea of wearing ni..iha. a vnptttinn huR nut recurred to tno. W""V. W ' ' ' - - - . Please give my kind regards to Mr Etbel, ana tell nun mat, aiuioiiicu 1 uu uuiiuun personally, I cuntiot help feelmg sorry for him. fHot Springs News. AKKBHTIK8 A PHSIDBT.

For illustration one of his constitutional advisers, in a recent letter to aa o'd crony m this city, says : "Did 1 ever tell you of the fun we had dur ing tbe visit of the presidential party to Flori da summer before last f You must know that besides being a confirmed practical joker, Chel ie quite an adept at certain eleiffbt of hand tricks, a oroticiency in which he has kept up from boyhood. He flatters himself that be can remove a handkerchief or watch from a pocket with as much adroitness as a professional 'nip per.' He has perpetrated many queer joke fn this way, the exalted position of the perpe trator natnrally protecting hlra from suspicion. While at Jacksonville the white house gang determined to attend a monster darky camp meeting about ten mile back in the country, and, tolavoid tbe eternal 'reception' nuisance, we went incognito. When we left the train and were aaiting conveyance at a small tavern, Chet noticed a tat planter dosing In the bar room, and displaying a preposterous bunch of seals on his fou-chaiu. Arthur watched bis chance, snaked out the man's watch, and hid it in the saddlebags of another traveler that was hauging on tbe wall. Now, Bill Chandler bad been waiting for a chance to get back 00 Arthur for several days, so he in turn collared toe planter's property ami slipped it Into the breaat pocket of Chet's big duster. Then be quietly led each member of the party aside and let them into tlie conspiracy, to tbeir great de light. When the vehicles returned from the ramping ground Arthur was Immediately col lared by the planter, who savagely demaaded his property. "What do you mean, fallow P" said the pres ident, trying to lana-h and winking at hie staff all of whom, however, remained saspictously indifferent. "Ob, yon cant come any fanny haeiness with ma. One of these gentlemen saw yoa steal my watrb and put it in your pocket. Here, constable, I want this man searched! "Very well, then, search me,' said our trU dticen, almost exploding with laughter.

Hurry up and explain this thing," said Arthur, as the constable began taking out a pair of handcuffs.' "Explain what? I don"! know yoa, ilr, and the state department walked off.

A dispatch from Chulafinee, Ala, dated July 12, says: "A party of northerners, who have been prospecting for minerals in this neighbor hood for some time, arrived here this morning from Riddlesbride, on the Tallapoosa river. They report tbe finding by them of a remarka ble cave near there, and give a graphic account of their meeting with the inhabitants of the cave. The entrance to the cave is near tbe head of a small ravine, about one mile from the Talla poosa river, and is barely large enough for ono person to enter at a time. The party entered the cave abont 4 pm, and spent two hours ex ploring it. The ca e is about 400 feet in length, varying in width from 10 to 00 feet, with an average height of 15 feet, and is dimly lighted throughout by small fissures in the rocas, extending from the roof to tbe ground above. When tbe explorers were about to leave the cave, !they were terrified at finding the exit blocked by a writhing mass of big rattlesnakes. Tbe noise made by tbe party had doubtless roused tbe siakes from their hiding places among the rocks, and they had gathered in large uumbers near the entrance. Deeming dis cretion the better part of valor, the party re treated to that part of the cave most remote from the entrance to wait for tbe snakes to return to tbeir hiding places.

A Christian's Btery of Hla Wnrder-Shot While Readme: tha Blbls. There Is still another account of tbe death of Gordon, and this time it comes from a Chris tian, llostl Penago, a Greek storekeeper at Khartoum. He tells bli story haif-delantly , quite desperately, nn who has lust hie borne and fortune, to the Doogolaoorrespoadent of tbe London Times ; WbM tka steamers approached a great cry erase threigb the town : 'The KagllsU are com lnirl Tha Saalitb are coming!" Tbe rebels took their rifles and commenced to fire at tbem. "Hal" said a man to me, "look at them j tbsy cannot save yen. it may nave been arranged to deliver np tue ouy juas uuioro theBagUth came. I don't knowi bat this I know, if yon bad com three days or two days sooner, yon would have taken Khartoum easi ly. Farla moved away the troops guardia g the gate that waa entered thi night before, and took them to tbe other side of me town on seme pre tone or other. Gordon did not know of this nor did any one, I think, except tha troops themselves. We Europeans knew there were traitors, but we did not think they could do anything, or, I said before, we suouid lave formed ourselves into a band. Boom! boom! boom! was. the lound that greeted as from dawn to sunset. We were sad, sorrowful and depressed. Power was In the magazine in the church, guarding and looking after tbe amm anitlou. x ou say you anew an i am telling you. Do you know that a woman once got In and nearly succeeded la blowing up all tire ammunition 1 bus was seized, but alter a while Gordon released ber. I used to sit In my shop all day near the barracks selling cof fee. All spirituous liquor was gone. We used to iit all day gamblina and playing cards ( we bad tobacco. Thore were 41 of us aad ten Jews ; some of us had our women with us Greek wo menthat we had brought with us, but not all. Cuszi used to go and come with messages from sua to Gardon. Oordon said If he came again he would bang him; after tbat he came no more. And now the day arrived that was, to separate husband from wife, brother from sis ter, and parent from child. Tha streets wore soon to run with blood. I was not at my house. I was wlih some Greeks-eight la all near the mosque, when we heard, a hideous uproar, as of men shouting and yelliug, and of women walling around about ou all sides. Nearer aud nearer did this long-continued roar approach, swelling as it were and now bursting close on our ears. Men with frightful gashes ou their faces aad limbs came flyiag by, and toward us women with torn garments and dishevelled hair shrieking, screaming "Jesu Cbristo!" I shall not forget that horrible dia to the day of my death. "Wa are lost! vVe are lost!" we cried. "The nlaca is taken !" But no one could tell us exactly what was tbe matter. We ran up to the . i 1L.. A 1. - . top or tue mosque, ana saw iu ius wjwh waa given up to massacre and blood-shed. Wo ran to a house, barricaded the doors and windows, went upstairs, shut ourselves into a room, and determined never to surrender, but dia like Greeks ; for we, mindful of our ancestors, fight to tbe last. Thus it was that our fathers wero surrounded by Turks ; wo are a brave nation ! How we escaped I will tall vou. ( But listen, I pray you. Have you not asked me where Gordon Pasha vas slaiB? You say everybody has said be w .1 eitbor killed on tho courtyard steps of the pij'jsco or outside, going to the Acstriao,ainsiil's bouse. They ull lie ! If you cfeoosu to believe tlibui, you may, It mattewfiot to me. I am a respectable Greek mrcnant, not an Arab. You want tbe truth ; I tcCl it to you. True. I did not see Gordon slain ; hut everybody lu Khartoum knows where the event happened. A Arab rushed up stairs and shot him with a gun as he was reading the Bi ble. Another Arab cut or! bis head and put it en a spear; and so went fortu'into the city, car rying it and brandishing it on high. Tbe Copts in tbe palace in tbe rooms below were slaught ered at tbe same time., , Tbe Arabs cme poui'ifgin ; they slew evory man tbey could And ; no mercy was shown to any one. Thore was no resistance. I don't think a hundred shots were fired by Egyptians w ttianirfl. Men ran ru iih auui ,ucuj,oi,gi uw In hnnaes- but doon were ourst open, aim spearing,- totting ami aMrr mar -wnt on bravely in the streets, in tbe market square, in tbe ba saars. It was a horrible scene, this bazaar af terward. I went through It. Gay curtains, crimson-colored and orange-striped, golden, edged satins and muslins, lay smeared and splashed with blood ; everything was upset and strewed about and trample on. Everywhere was the wildest disorder. You know how nar i, ... onri hn. it wlnrla. One corner was so full of corpses and dying that we could not get by, and 1 fell several times in the road, slip pery with blood. Tbe havoc went on till eight o'clock. Then Mahomet Achmet sent over word from Omdunnan tbat Auan nan reveawu him that to slaughter must ceijfO. We were told this.' dt was shouted about ttie streets, ana those that were still hidden were t,ldden to come forth. Of foiJsiareekoi.iy eight escaped. There were ten Jews TV1H6 were killed, I think. Gordon's bead I saw on a spcas. It was taken over to Omdurman and shown to Mahomet Ach met. It was laid before him. A grim, savage smile passed over his face. He gazed long at the countenance of his into enemy. "God be praised !" he cried, "can this be his ? He did not express anger at Gordon's death, as you say has been reported he made merry at his death when it was told him. The head was then borne away, and men pluched the hairs out of bis head and beard, and spat in his face. His body was cut up into little pieces. This was bis end ! 1 omitted to say tbat Gordon wrote to the Mahdi saving be might be viceroy of Kordofar. The Mahdi replied: "I am sent by God to be king of all," and invited him to surrender.

The New York Commercial Advertiser says editorially: "Every residant of New England is accastomed to regard that region as health ful, while the New Englanders are few who would go to live at tbe south without feeling that they thereby added greatly to tho risk of early death ; and yet Massachusetts is less healthy even tbau Mississippi, Louisiana Georgia or South Carolina. Tbe death rate in Massachusetts is 18.59, while in Mississippi It is only 12.89, In South Ctrjlina 15.80, in Georgia 13.97, and in Louisiana 15.44. Indeed there Is no southern state in which tbe mortal ity rate is so great as it is iu Massachusetts, aud only one Arkansas-in which it is nearly as great. Louisiana is commonly accounted one ot the mostunhcalihful statosiu the Union; most persons regard it, indeed, as first in that evil way : and yet tbe death rate there is only 1S.44 while tkat of New Yerk is 16.34 and that of Viruinia 16.32. The statistics show that Louisiana has a smaller death rate than Ar kansas, the district ot Columbia, Indiana, Marylaud, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico.
