3 RIGHTS OF WOMEN. A Indignant Correspondent of m IIouso bold Journal Thinks They Haven't Many. Oh, for the eloquence of Patrick Henry Or Wendell Phillipsl If I could "buy, Jeg, borrow or steal" a sufficient sup ply, I would devote the rest of my life to trying to open women's eyes to the Wrong all about them, to the sins against countless unborn children by the treatment the mothers receive. It aroused my indignation when I learned that in the state of New York the law was such a father had tho right to will away an unborn child, and the mother must submit. When it was de cided in Rhode Island that in case the parents could not agree as to the name pf their child tho father Id the right to select the name, a feeding of contempt, mingled with amusement, arose that Our wiso lawmakers should devote hours perhaps to making such a law. Perhaps there va9 a feeling of "You beat them this time, didn't you?" when, I read of tho man in Alabama arrestee for steal ing fomale woaring apparel and could not bo convicted, although it was proved he had taken tho clothes, because it was Mrs. S. who lost them and tho thief Bhould have been arrested for stealing Mr. S. 's clothes. Tho women of Kansas Bent words cf sympathy and condolence to tho women of Kentucky when they learned that by law they did not own the clothes on their backs, but all this Boemed afar off and strange, and the feeling of indignation was nothing com pared to that upon hearing that tho su prome court of Iowa, that grand state, bad reversed a decision of the lower court granting Mrs. Hall of M. dam ages for injuries received by falling in a water main carelessly left unguarded. They decided she was a "mere house Wife;" that her husband was the one Who sustained injury by having his time lost. Her claim was not valid, as she could lose no time. It was all her husband's. Ye gods 1 Not only is another Daniel come to judgment, but several, though it is "over tliVleft shoulder. " Women will rave when they are told men con aider them property, so will aome men, too, but if Euch decisions do not prove it I know not wh.-.t does. Are we to be forever satisfied to be a mere annex to man, his equal, pet or slave, as the in dividual man may decide? And must those who bolong to the first two classes rest content because their lot is easy, close their eyes to the fact that their Bisters not so fortunate are in torment, and that the law, this human imperfec tion, looks upon all as in one class? Let us look into this question and not rest content as long as "one of the least Of these" needs assistance. Let us not Shield ourselves behind the cowardly Boreen, "I do not believe in woman's rights; a clever woman will get all the rights she wants, " even if a talented Woman does make such remarks. It is oot the mother nature that speaks there. The true mother lots her clever children look out for themselves, if necessary, while she gives her caro and attention to the crippled or helpless. "As ye have done it unto the least of these, ' ' 6aid the Master, not as ye do to the clever. What though we care Ut ile for politics, wish no offices and all that, still there may be a duty for us to do. The women of Kansas are perhaps more than usually interested this year. We are proud of the women who are taking the front rank for the advance ment ol the race, for mothers cannot progress without its effect being seen upon the race. May truth and right prevail. E. B. G. in Minneapolis Housekeeper. Women Pensioners. There are now 29 widows on the pen sion rolls of the government recoiving $100 or more a month, and if the house agrees to the senate bills giving $100 a month to the widows of Generals Banks and Thomas L. Crittenden the list will embrace 31 names. Most of these are widows of distinguished army and navy officers and receive the $100 a month. But $1GG a mouth goes to the widows of Generals Logan, McClellan, Fremont, Cook and F. P. Blair, and Mrs. Philip II Sheridan and Mrs. Da vid D. Porter get $208 a month pension, while tho two living widows of presi dents Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Garfield receive $416, or $5,000 a year. Wom an's Journal. Cooking Soirees. "Cooking soirees" are the latest fad with fashionable women in Paris. They have taken up the art of cooking as an accomplishment and with a zest which bids fair to achieve a great success. Frenchwomen are natural cooks and have the charming knack of adding a dainty grace to this practical employ ment, which is very taking with the men. They have a sort of bar arranged in their drawing rooms, and behind this ladies cook savory dishes and eerve them to their guests. Paris Letter. Woman's Rights. Miss Susan B. Anthony says: "While it is true that women have only secured full suffrage in two states, they have se cured partial or local suffrage in more than 10,000 communities. Tho only dif ference that remains, the last surviving relio of the age when woman was chat tel property and was the savage slave of ft still more savago lord, remains to be Wined away. When this is done, for the first time in tho world wo will have per fect liberty and perfect equality." It May Do as Mucli for Ton. Mr. Fred Miller, of Irvine1. 111., writes that he had a sevpre Kidney trouble for many years, with Hevt-rp Eoins in his bflck and also that hi ladder was affected. He tried many so-called Kidney cures but withhout any good result. About a year ago he began the use of Electric Hitters and found relief at oqce. Electric Bitters is especially adapted to cure of all Kidney and liver troubles and often gives almost instant relief. One trial will prove our statement. Price only GOc for large bottle. At II, J.

In the history of tho struggles of the civil war Wendell Phillips said of Anna Dickinson, "She is the young elephant sent forward to try the bridges to see if they are safo for older ones to cross." Who is to be the young elephant or our great popular uprising, when women, as at present, no matter how liberal, are backward in becoming active sol diers? If women wish to win this cause, they must sacrifice all selfish vanity and flattery of ignorant though influential friends, put their shoulders to the wheel and battle for the right. It is always well to dress well and to pleaso and make happy your friends, but remem ber ever that when you are loitering by the wayside in flitting frivolities the short clouds of life are gathering and tho cause for which yon lend your name stands waiting by an open grave for a helping hand. There is no time like the present. Talk suffrage for women; sing suffrage for women; write suffrage for women; prajior suffrage for women! Margharita Arlina Hamm. Lifting the Dress. A recent writer from Paris Eays, among many other things, that "Amer icans are 'spotted' by their very conser vative or ovcrinodcst manner in which they lift their dresses at the back to es capo tho dirt. If it is fair, a well dress ed Frenchwoman allows her gown to sweep along tho streets, which are de lightfully clean, but if rainy sho lifts it on one side nearly to the knees, showing a silk petticoat that perfectly harmonizes with her costume, fine, silken hose and well fitting shoes, and I fully agree with tho critics that there is nothing conservative about this. " The writer goes on to say: "I notice in the shops some changeable effects in narrow strip ed hose, but have seen only black when viewing the uplifted skirts. The tan and russet shoes and hose are not as much in evidence as they were in London. The use of half hose for boys and girls up to 8 years for the latter and 10 for the former i3 universal. " Knit Goods Review. The Club Question. There will be many women to in dorso Mrs. Helmuth's remarks in the matter of inordinate club joining for wo men. In her recent visit to Boston it was mentioned to her that Mrs, Mary A. Livermore was enrolled in 37 clubs, and that Mrs. Micah Dyer, Jr., belong ed to 22. This Mrs.Helmuth considered "intemperance," saying that it was about as reasonable to adopt 22 religions as to belong to 22 clubs. Mrs. Dyer, submitting to tho inevitable interview, defends tho position. "I should havo an swered Mrs. Helmuth, if I had been able to attend the reception, " she says, "and should havo told her that if she only knows Sorosis she is in danger of grow ing selfish and narrow. There is no limit to the number of clubs a woman may join with profit, so long as she re serves timo enough to look out for her home duties." A Minister'! Query. Rev. Hugh Johnston, D. D., writes from Washington to Zion's Herald that the "woman question" entered largely into the discussions that the preachers' meoting in that city has bceu having on the constitutions of the M. . church. He asks: Since there is no sex in saint hood, in intellect or in Christian work, why should woman's absence from tho "governing body" of the church be so marked when her presenco everywhere else is so essential? When in our prayer meetings we need to use Sydney Smith's stress of emphasis, "O that men would praise tho Lord," and when In thn Norld's (?rcat field of action, In tho bivouac of life. You will find the Christian soldier Represented by his wife. Mrs. Alberta II. Taylor. Mrs. Alberta R. Taylor, the daughter of a former governor of Alabama and a native of Huntsvillo, recently address ed the Woman Suffrage club of New Decatur, Ala. Mrs. Taylor was enter tained at lunch by Mrs. C. J. Hildrcth, where the club assembled. She has been a resident of Denver for some years and took part in the suffrage cam paign. Sho emphasized tho point that for years the women's organizations had been working to secure wise changes in existing laws, and in that way so en tirely convinced the better class of men of all parties of their fitness for citi zenship that full suffrage was the nat ural, logical outcome. A Ulnt of Colors. French color cards are just appearing for the spring and inform us that the pale shades of bluet will continue in fa vor. The cherry or magenta reds will be retained, though, in preference, the palest shade known as reine, more of a strong reddish pink, will prevail, writes Emma M. Hooper in Ladies' Home Journal. Black in trimmings and dress goods, as well as millinery, promises to be worn as much in the spring as it has been during the winter. Turquoise blue is one of the spring colors; also golden yellow, pale stem gredn, all medium and light browns and of course the never failing iiavy blue. A Uotel For Women. The Young Women's Christian asso ciation of Chicago is about to eroct a fine new building seven stories high, fitted up with all modern conveniences and accommodating 300 gnosts. Board will vary from $2. CO to $5 per week. There will also ho accommodations for women traveling alone who want all tho comforts of a goud hotel without tho at tendant publicity.

MILLIONS FOR WHISKY. Cnlted States Spends More Money For Ituuj Thau to Hun the Government. Americans nro accounted a fairly so ber peoplo in tho hurly burly of nations, but tho figures of the internal revenue commisloner for the last year are enough to mako a temperance crank stagger without a drop of whisky or beer. We distilled last year 87, 340, 384 gal lons of liquor, not including 1,430,853 gallons of brandy, making in al 1 88, 777, 187 gallons of alcoholic spirits. Expert bartenders estimate C3 drinks to the gallon. Therefore there were 5,604, 002,891 drinks produced in this country. A conservative estimate of how much was imbibed across counters is about 6,090,000,000 glasses of whisky, for which wo paid over tho bar $009,000,- 000, or $5,000,000 moro than all the annual appropriations of congress com bined. This represents a consumption of 100 glasses of whisky each year for every man, woman and child between tho rock bound Pacific and the storm tossed At lantic, or, counting only tho male adnlts, 500 glasses per year each. Of beer tho figures are equally as tounding. Tho consumption was 31, 902, 943 barrels that is, 12, 7S5, 109, 200 glasses, representing the expenditure for this modo of Teutonio hilarity of $017, 258,400, or about 10 cents for each in habitant. In tho neighborhood of 220 glasses are charged up in this calculation against each of us as our annual allowance. Therefore if wo do not average our daily glass we may bo suro that our neighbors are getting tho benefit of our abstinence. By estimating this year's internal revenue receipts from spirits on tho basis of last year's product with the in creased tax of $1.10 per gallon, the in ternal revenuo receipts will be $97, 074, 905. Atlanta Constitution. RISKED LIFE AND LIMB. Three Drunkards Took a Perilous Trip to Get a Supply of Whisky. It is well known that men addicted to the use of liquor will go to almost any length to get "tho good old stuff" when temporarily cut off from their regular source of supply, says a correspondent of Tho Banner of Gold. At a recent meeting of the Keeley leaguo a graduate told tho story of how threo gentlemen who wero confined by their friends in tho "jag ward" of a hospital, getting over a prolonged spree, made a break for liberty and liquor. Their quarters were on the fourth floor of tho main building, and they wanted whisky and "wanted it bad." They finally decided to go down the fire es cape, scale the high picket fence and seek tho nearest hostelry whero liquid comfort was dispensed. They waited till lip. m., and then made the peril ous descent, bareheadoct, slippered and with their hospital gowns fluttering in the cool evening breeze. They got down and over tho fence safely, and after some rebuffs found a saloon keeper who agreed to give them what they wanted. After absorbing several drinks they started back to tho hospital, each with a quart bottlo in his possession. Two got over the iron picket fence safely, but the tail of the third one's gown caught on a spiko and detaiuod him temporarily, only to let him down head first to plow up tho gravel with his face and i;oso. Tho other two climbed up the fire es cape, and eluding tho attendants got safely in bed again. Tho third did not got in again that night, but was sent back two days later. A Nonalcoholic Thirst Quencher. Tho Woman's Budget credits recent temperance efforts in Great Britain with the substitution of nonalcoholic drinks for beer in harvest time. A new drink, called "stokos" (because it is largely used by the stokers) is now gradually finding its way into gas works, iron foun dries, tho clock and shipbuilding yards, etc. It is not only pleasant to drink, but is most thirst quenching. It consists of a composition of fine ground oatmeal, lemon and white sugar. A gallon of this drink can bo made for threepence, and if six gallons are made at a time it only costs twopence a Gallon. Never Despair, for while there is life there is hope. Of the many marvellous CURES made in cases that by common consent were given up as incurable, that of MRS. LAURA B. FARR of WEST BURKE, VT., by roainiar. JS SARSAPARILLA The Kind That Cures was one of the most remarkable. For 30 years a sufferer with Ca tarrh, the disease was supposed to be without cure. A course of DANA'S made her entirely free from every ailment but the Ca tarrh. It was so firmly rooted that she felt further effort useless. Per suaded to continue the use of the medicine, to her joy, at last the dis ease yielded. She says, " Weighed 125, nosv 156 pounds. Hair smooth as satin, complexion good, and am perfectly well at the critical time of life when so many women suf fer from a regular cyclone of (lis- cases. See that you get DANA'S. s Mrs. E. E. Brown, Easton, N. H. Nothing to Build On Catarrhal Neuralgia, Almost Par alyzed, All Broken Up M'arvelously Restored to Health by Hood's Sarsaparilla. "C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.: "I was taken sick with catarrhal neuralgia and a complication ot diseases, with Nervous Prostration. Physicians said there was no help for ma. I was rundown so low there was nothing to build on. Tbey said I had catarrh ot the bladder. I had such light feelings In my head I could hard ly walk around the house. I think my throat came very near being paralyzed, and It was with the greatest difficulty I could swallow food. I became discouraged, and thinking I bad one before taken a few bottles of Hood's Sarsapa rilla I decided to try It again. I am thankful I did. When I commenced taking it I weighed 98 pounds ; now I weigh 139 pounds. I could not stand oa my feet long enough to wash my dishes; now I can do all my work washing In cluded, for five in family.

The results are remarkable as showing how few people leave any estates at all and the low average values of the estates left.
