THE CONGRESSIONAL SITUATION It must not be forgotten that th contest in Lake county was a genuine bitter contest with several hundred citizens and one or two republican newspapers on each Bide; that th contest was decided as such contes are almost Invariably decided, bi seating both delegations and glvlnf each half the vote; that the conven. tlon, with Lake county not voting was in the hands of Judge Johnston 1 an attempt had been made to draw the lines; that after the contest was decided as it was Judge Johnston stil had four majority and that the retire ment of his delegates gave the nomln ation to Mr. Landis. Judge Johnston gave his vote a' 113. Subtracting the 15 votes ol Lake county as per this contest and he would still have 98 or five more than enough to nominate. Or, take the statement of the delegates themselves and the vote after this contest; U would have stood Johnston. 94; Landls, 98 Considering these things it will be seen that there was no legal ground for a withdrawal and that the with drawal resulted in the nomination of Mr. Landis; that Mr. Landis was legally, properly and fairly nominated and that Mr. Johnston's friends had no grounds for withdrawal and no cause for complaint now. As to the situation now little can be said. The Journal urged a third can dldate and both sides agree now thp.t that would have been tho proper sol ution. It is the duty of every republican to support the nominee and that 13 tho best solution now. The district must not be lost. THE selection of C. B. Landis for Congress is highly pleaainR to Cuss county. He is n, Cass county boy, born and raised here, and the people of Lopfi'.nspori have an especial interest in him. Jud-,-0 Johnston, his oppon ont, is a man of ability and experience and commands the respect of the pooplo of the; district but when it comes to tho actual work required of a Congressman Mr. Landis is far better qualified for the duties. Tho most successful Congressmen aro thoso who have practically made themselves the servants of their con stituents. AHOUT 1,600 citizens' of Logansport subscribed for stock In the new gas company. It Is very important that these subscribers pay their first Installment at ones. Unless thny do this nothing will be done as none of the money Is to be paid out until »uo- oesa Is reasonably certain and the directors will not make any contracts or Incur any Indebtedness until they know that the money Is coming U to meet the indebtedness. Pay your first installment tomorrow. The whole project is waiting on you and the work of construction ought to be commenced at once. THE Johnston men had a majority of the counties In the district, a ma. orlty of the delegates outside of Lake county, and a majority of pretty nearly everything, and yet they withdrew 'rom the convention, leaving the nom- aaJion to Mr. Landis. They were soared Into a retreat when they had a sure victory. DUKING the past week over two hundred subscribers to the new gas company paid up. This was gratify _ng to the directors and Indicates that the people have not lost their Interest. Those who have not paid should do so at once. ^. THE Republicans of the Tenth Indiana district cannot afford to engage .n a flght among themselves. The condition of the country demand* a Eepublioan Congress. IT Is estimated that the shrinkage _ values caused by the Cleveland depression greatly exceeds the entire loss by the war ol the rebellion. THE Supreme Court of tho United States has sustained the State tax law and the railroads will be compelled to pay as per Its provisions. PAT the first Installment on your iubsoriptlon to the new gas company tomorrow. WOULD-BE .WRITERS. Uab, th* Famone Correaponitent Otters eonnd. Advice to Anplrlng Women LUeriirlims. Special Correspondence. NIWYOM, MnylS!, 1881. I don't think I ever saw a girl cry harder. First, I ventured to eympa thlze with "her by words. They wor of no use. Then I offered that Infal Hble consoler—a oup of tea. It wa DO use at all. At laut I lost my tern per and tried what common scnai would do, I said: "When you wrote to toe last year and aaked me, an utter stranger to you, to give you my ad vice about coming to New York to earn your living with your pen, 1 told you that you had better stay at home; tha where one woman succeeded, there were nine hundred and ninety-nine who failed; and that while ambition was a very good thing, the knowledg that you had a roof over your hea< and plenty ol bread and butter for the rest of your life was a deal sight bet ter. You said your father was able to support you, but that you yearned to be independent. Now, that was your first mistake. A good daughter is independent when she does her duty in her father's household and fits herself to b« the head of another one. AMATEURISH WOVEN WBITEBS. But no, you thought you had posii bllltles like Emerson. You announce that you would never write anything os silly as a fashion article, and that you were going to do something to make your people proud of you. Well you came, and you were surprised to discover how much money It took to get even a tiny bit of a room In a respectable boarding house. Then you started in to see the different editors. They were polite to you—they genar ally are—but they sounded you in five minutes, and made you feel, In five more, that they would be obliged to you if you would leave. After thai you came to see me. I asked you what you had written, and you showed me the usual work of the amateur. Newspapers don't want the opinion 1 of girls of nineteen on subjects after tho style of those discussed by debat* Ing societies; thoy want cither news or original matter, arid by original mailer I moan pictures of life gleaned from experience and touching subjects that aro novel. I told you to go homo and write an article describing tho liitle vilUige from which you caine. You did, and that sold. Then, instead of continuing in that line, you carried down somo nonsense about your opinion of the.Romans as ora tors. If you had told about some village orator and shown up his queerness of speech and oddities of manner, you might have sold that, but no, you must harp on the things that nobody wanted to road and with which editors are inundated. Now, tho best thing for you to do Js to go home. You evidently won't, or can't, give what the public wants, consequently there Is no place for you in the newspaper world. Go back home, be a food girl, make yourself useful where pou are, and two years from now I shall expecfc an Invitation to your wedding to the dearest f ello if In the world. SCHOOLGIRL COMPOSITIONS NOT WANTED. I don't know whether she want home or not; she left me feeling very ndignant, but It Is just possible that when she was by herself the small modicum of common sense which she josiessed came to the surface and she lid as she was advised. There are ilenty Of women all over the country irho think that I am severe. There are hundreds of them who write to me asking,my advice about coming to Jew York and writing for papers and magazines, and I want this letter to >e a round robin to them. If you can write anything worth reading, or which has a market value, It can come ust as well from where you are now; and If It has value that will quickly >e recognized. Editors are always ooklng for something good and orlg- nal, but they don't want school girl compositions, nor their opinions on .he great questions of the day. At the beginning of this I told about one girl who made a mistake. Hero the story of another. She was bright, pretty and decidedly attrao- Ive. She Introduced herself to me at _ bazar, and asked me in a very sweet way KI would mind telling her what he had better do about one special hlng. Just at this moment, however, she excused herself, said she was obliged to speak to some of the reporters and that she would be baolf few minutes. Later on, I saw her talking to them. They were nice oupg fellows, well-mannered, well- educated and Bood, workers, •he wasn't adding to her position by being chummy with hem and ibe was lowering net self In their eyes. About* month afterward .sawher again. She.had gotteti pace work on two or thre« news- paper* and the believed that she knew thoroughly the art of succeeding in them. SHE WAS ' 'HAIL-FELLOW WELL MET" with a great many men; she spoke In the most familiar manner of the different men employed on the paper, and seemed to think that familiarity bred respect rather than contempt. I don't believe that girl thought any. thing wrong, but she went to work In the wrong way. A woman can do her work thoroughly and well without having anything more than a formal acquaintance with the people among whom she IB thrown, and it may be taken as a truth that while the popular woman may hold her own for a little while, It is the woman who sira. ply does her work, and Isn't "chummy" who achieves what she wishes. A woman may be quoted in the papers as being popular, and she may be making f 600 a year, where another woman, who, perhaps, never saw a man who buys her work, whose appearance Is unknown, and whose friends are not the people In the same line of work, will be earning her thousands. My dear girl, I do know what I am talking about; popularity will not pay your bills, or make your work good. The day came when I had to work, and I realized that must do the work that was- offered to me, and not that But all this great army of dear, hopeful girls think they can do what they like, and they come here, have their hearts hurt, and unless they are very strong mentally, to make failures of their lives. One girl who came to me scoffed at the idea of writing a fashion article. Do you know what it means to bo a good fashion-writer? A GOOD FASHION WHITER Must have the entree not merely to the shops, for anybody can go there, but to the exclusive dressmaker; if possible, she must in time, arrange communication with London and ParK so that Information reaches her three months ahead of any one else. Money won't buy this—well, what shall I call HP Nothing expresses U but pull. It takes tlmo to convince designers that their work la not going to be sold, or given away to other people, and one must use all one's arts of pleasing to gain an entrance to the circle from which the desired information will emanate. For work, with a backing like this, there is always a demand, but this £irl, who wiehed to earn her living:: scoffed at Highest of all in Leaven^ Power.—Latest * r .S. Gov't Repotf Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE and write, first of all,' from where yo are, and then, If your work amount* to anything, you will be asked to sen more or to come to see the editor. C course, there are women who hav succeeded. You hear of them all th time, but do you hear of the woma who has failed? Do you know ho much some of these women are earn ing? Being brave, they aro living o as little as possible, and being cheer ful, but life isn't easy for them, and 1 their hearts most of them know tba they would rather a thousand time be the wife of some good man thai have the doubtful pleasure of occa Bionally seeing their names in print To the young women who are earn in their living with their pens and wh hope to get ahead, I would like to say this—keep your business and you - social life separate. Then, when you go to work, you will have fresh Idea offered to I dyouwillnot carry j nto the offlc which I preferred. t he small dissensions, vanities or fad what is rucogriixcd as legitimate work E.ud wanted to write herself down t fool by.taking 1 up subjects that men of groat brain almost fear to touch. What I would like the women to learn, those women who have to make their living- with tholr pone>, is that that work sella best which boars the imprint of womanliness not weakness. This it has when a.n effort IB made to write like a man, instead of doing it after one's own way. Then, too, why doesn't the amateur remember that AN EDITOR WOULD PREFER three short words to one of many syllables? I get absolutely heart sick because I desire every woman who a as to work to succeed. But, when a girl, who knows nothing of the trials of life, coolly tells, after I have tried get her some work, that It Is lm» possible for her to do that as she rrould rather write editorials, what can I layP And when I am told, as another did. that It IB very easy for me to give advloa, I wonder If she thinks of the days of hard work, of the disappointments, of the bitter experiences that have come to me, and made me realize what women must do. I can say one thing—even If I am a little vain, I never had an article returned to me; but that was due to no virtue on my part, least of all was it lue to any ability on my part, but It was due to this one thing—I was for- unate enough to be given these words of wisdom by a man. "Write what you are told to do, and, no mater how trivial the subject may seem, put the best of yourself In it, and, as urely as you do this, the day will come when you will choose your own ubjeot, and I shall be happy if you >lease to write these words of mine as •ood hard truth for another woman." DON'T LEAVE TOUR HOME and come to New York believing that rou will be Immediately engaged by omn New York paper because of the ittle things you have written that ileased your family, Take my advice of the nth»r side. Today the women who are earning the most rrono; are those who are seldom seen among the so-called newspaper women. They flock by themselves and don't talk shop. They are not familiar with thi newspaper men; and not finding the! friends among them, they receive in consequence much more respect Among these women may be cited Mrs. Burton Harrison, Mrs. Schuyle Van Rensselaer and Miss Jeanette Gilder, as having made great eucces ses, and yet separating the social and the working world so well that on never conflicts with the other. AVOID LIVING IN BOHEMIA. The woman who writes gains noth ing by making an attempt to fine Bohemia and live in it. She wil make more money If she regards con. ventionalities. Bohemia represents a land of dirt and tobacco, of bad food and ill-furnished rooms, and, as far &•, I could see, when I was taken into it which, thank goodness, has only been n few times, of lack of comfort. I tbink the woman who writes i gradually discovering that, while sb is o writer, sho is, before nil else. £ woman, and that when she makes an effort to DO THAT HYUKin, A MAN'S C1IUM, she Is a failure in every way. I don know that this round robin will do anybody any good, and yet if it would keep one girl at home it will have more than fulfilled its object. Stay at home and bo something better than a groat writer; bo a good daughter, in time a loving wife, and later on a wise mother. Work is a misfortune for a woman; that Is, the work thai takes her outside of her home. I tell you, my friend, that is the truth, and I know it, because as the years have gone by I have seen so many who have fallen by the wayside have soon a few. only a few, fall into wicked ways; but I have seen a very very great many simply drift along In life, picking up a little work here and a little there, getting juat enough to keep them living without ambition, without hope, and saddest of all- alone. Think this all over before you start out Into the workaday world, and try and conclude whether, after all, your work Isn't that which Is nearest to you. What I have written la In the kindest spirit, but it Is my answer to the hundreds of letters I have gotten —the answer that it forced from me by the knowledge gained during the experiences that have come to BAB. A BAR TO WOODEN UEQS. Sblpi' Pilot* Kn<t Be FTM From Magnetic Attraction*. Have you a wooden leg? Have you a make-believe arm? Have you nerves of steel? Do you take iron tonics?

This all comes through^ the- discovery that a ship's compass needle takes queer turns and cuts up unaccountable shines sometimes. Once a knowing 1 old sea dog was entertaining' a pretty pirl in the pilot-house. The- compass fell into some of its pranks. The old sea do£ was puzzled for a bit. He knew the pretty girl was magnetic enough to bother anything 1 , to say nothing 1 of a superstitious mariner's- compass; but ho was a practical old fellow, and knew that it was something more than her eyes that were at- work. "If you want to stay here you'll hev to take off yer co'sets," blurted out the- pilot. "Why, captain!" gaiped the fair one. "Can't >e belpen, me lady. -The steel in 'cm krjooks-4his compawsrlean out- The needle jumps to'rds ye jes' like a. strip of a boy would." The abashed young woman fled from the pilot-house, pouted a little, and refused to return. The board of underwriters had the dauger called forcibly to them by the- loss of the schooner Susan E. Peck, which went ashore at Bar Poinl, Lake Erie, in September last, entailing a loss of twenty thousand dollars, which, the insurance companies had to pay. This disaster, it is claimed, was directly traced to the slight deviation of the- compass, due to the steel in the pilot'*, artificial leg. The matter was called to the attention of the treasury department, which will shortly issue a circular to the inspectors of hulls and boilers, who constitute the local board of examiners, as to the course to pursue when limbless applicants for pilot*' certificates come forward. The proper- protection of the ship's compass must be perfected at all hazards.—St- Louie- Republic. The Rugged Child is largely an "outdoor" product.
