BOTKW IS AGAIN ON TRIAL BY PROXY . jll" BE boftby Dis Tells Ahotst It, and a Study of He Ideas Will Give Yot Some of Yoat Own and Convince You She Knows It Pretty Neat ly All (Dorothy Dix.) It Is to bo feared that this Is a uniquo ago that takes- ito Lent lightly. Nowadays when wo don our sackcloth It Is silk lined, nnd all our ashes arc ashes of roses; nevertheless, Lent Is a time when the thoughts of oven the most worldly turn to righteousness, and thus wo aro enabled to observe one of tho most remarkable phcnom cna of tho feminine toniporament woman'es ability to bo good by proxy, This Is a distinctly femlnlno accom plishment When a man thinks about being good ho begins with himself. Ho stops drinking, or swearing, or playing poker, or whatevor his par ticular vlco wa?. When a woman do cldes on lending tho higher life sho turns the batteries of her noblo reso lutions and directs her reform against somebody else. Sho doesn't evon con template giving up gossiping, or bridge, or bargain sales, or tho thing that was her besotting sin. On tho contrary, she contrives to enjoy hor own llt'lc vices In peace nnd content, but sh devotes all her onergy and zeal to trying to mako her husband quit smoking, or givo up his modest glass of beer, and sho feels that sho Is entitled to a hlghor placo among those who havo performed works of supererogation If sho enn harass htm Into resigning from his club. Anxiety for Hep Brothers' Soul. If further proof were wanted of wo man's noblo and altruistic naturo It could be found In tho fact that all tho great reforms Inaugurated by women havo had tho suppression of tho vices of men for their object, nnd this, too, when thoro was plenty of need of her looking to hor own fonco. It has never yet occurred to tho woman re former to tacklo tho vices of her own vx. All of women's anti-societies deal with tho things that they aro opposed to men doing. You never hoar of tho Woman Temperance Talking union, or the Mothor's Loaguo for Suppress ing Dad Children, or tho Antl-Gaddlng society, yet tho abuso of tho tongue has dono as much harm in tho world as the abuso of liquor, and thro are no other wrongs coropnrablo with the crlmo of raising up bnd and polled children, and maintaining an 111 kept homo. It Is a soothing nnd unsolflsh Idea that our brothers' souls need our at tention more than our own, and so, during Lent, whon all of tho fomlnlno ethical socIoUob got busy, wo aro treated to tho amusing spectacle of hordes of reformers who aro onjcyj lie all of the sacrod pleasures of be ing reformed without any of the pen alties of giving anything up that thoy wanted to do. and who are filled with feeling of solf-rlghteous virtue be cause they have formod a league to abolish betting In poolrooms, or chew log tobacco, or something that thoy ner did anyway Give Man Credit for Home Life. Nor Is this ability of woman to be 8d by proxy confined to her public Ctj EVcTV wnmnn vahn ta innn-liwl tn raan who lots hor henpeok him con fers herself a good wife and con KWuIates her husband upon having parried such a domestic troasure.

But this ! ,nS. Ab it is, every woman you know samo woman explained that It was lias two or thrc0 Pt charities that economy for hor to go to tho bost Bn doponds on running by holding" up dressmakor. Anyway, sho cut off all nor friends.

A man Gown, or a pleco of furnituro she novor knows until aftor ho fs married I wonts. Instead, she Indulgos herself that It Is economy to givo up cigars In order thnt you may put tho money In brlc-a-brac. A woman's burnt offer ings aro usually mado of someboJy else's taste. - Self-sacrifice has always been re garded as woman's star virtue, but even in this ho gonerally manages to sacrlflco somebody else Instead of herself. It Is tho snmo spirit that prompted Artcmus Ward, In a burst of patriotism, to declaro that ho was willing to sacrlflco all of his wlfo's relations to put down tho rebellion. Women aro unconscious of this, but whon you hear ono railing at the friv olity of fashion you may bo sure that sho Is too lazy to dress, and whon you hear ono assort that sho believes In plain living and high thinking, and that sho sets hor faco against tho pleasures of tho tablo, you may rost assured that sho Is a dyspoptio who has no appetito anyway. Active In Promoting Charity. Tho phaso of this mania, however, that women havo for being good by proxy that Is most objcctlonnblo, and that 1b In peculiar evidence during Lent, Is tho habit they havo of mak ing somebody olso foot tho bills for tholr charity. In every city through out tho country thoro Is a cotorlo of women who outdo tho scriptures in not letting tholr loft hand know what This makes Lent truly a tlmo of fast their right hand gives, for their pock- ing, and self-denial, and dust and etbook never finds It out at all.

Thoy aro tho head and front of every church fair, and missionary bazaar, and tea, and aro supposed by peoplo on tho outsldo to be lavish givers, yet they nevor contributo a cent of their own money. Lot a cas of destitution be knewn nnd such a woman claps on her bonnet and Is out collecting food and cloth Ing for tho sufforors from her nolgh bors, but It never occurs to hor to supply their needs from hor own storo room. Let a churoh fair be started, and aha glvos herself nervous pros tration rushing around soliciting con- trlbutions from merchants, but you nevor hear oT her digging down Into her own pockets and fishing up a cent.
