The American working men and women who are making the tour of Europe express themselves shocked at the irreli- gion, the unsteadiness, the immorality and tho lack of domesticity in Paris. But numbers of their richer fellow countrymen get used to this state of things In Paris, and like it. There has been enough blowing about the triumph of American ship building ua exhibited in the speed of the new crulner Baltimore. It is time now foi UB to recall the fact that she was de- uigned by W. E. .White, at present chief constructor of tho British navy, and that the plans for her machinery were made by the British firm of Humphreys & Tennant Secretary Whitney bought the design and plans. nnd •jl-.o cr>n!fmi<t in which nmr •rnmen won? hold in ih» fir'! c-^iitni-i"9 ol' tho chun:h"ia phnwn in si [iai">r in The CotiU'inpornry Reviow by Principal P-nvihUo!]. of tliePcott!!--h Univer-ii- ty of St.. Andrews. It ia thn prcval'-nt opinion that wom:in o«T9 her pi 'sent position, Kiich ns it is, nnd point 1 cml 't a lii^'h one, to Christianity and tlm infliirnce of tho Teutonic mind. Principal Donaldson cays he used to belicTo this ImnsHf. Then he invest!(rated it thoroughly nnd found that not only Christianity in the first throe centuries did not free and elevate women. but that, "on the contrary, it tended to lower their character and contract their range of activity." This, coming from a man so learned and BO thoroughly Christian as Principal Donaldson, is n remarkable statement. The degradation of woman, however, does not come from anything Christ himself taught Paul Is responsible for it. The Ebionitps narrate that Paul was a Greek of Tarsus; that he came up to Jerusalem and met and loved the high priest's daughter and became a Jewish proselyte. He then sought tho high priest's daughter in marriage, but was rejected. This rankled in his soul ever after, so that ho held a grudge at all womankind. Principal Donaldson says: Bomn have thought Unit thi-re la a bitterness against women In the writing of St Paul which can be explained only by some Mich rejection as that related by tho K.bionltra At any rato. the writings of Paul gave a trend to the woman question in the first days of the Christian church that lowered and degraded women unspeakably. in tho judgment of Principal Donaldson. —Another heavy lo?,3 by tiro occurred at Clinton last night.

They'had a tatno bear with claws blunted and mouth tautened and eet two bis; bull dogs to fighting it. They had previously collected dimes from the crowd. The sport was a cruel one, and Mr. Dillon, of the Humane Society, when he saw it, put a stop to it, and ordered the beggars out of town. They made tracks for Rock Falls. B.

Wright, of Boston, both men and women journalists were present and both took part In the speech making. The innovation of baying also the "soprano squeak" along with the bass and baritone voices ftt banquets seems to be taken up rapidly. For »ome time women have made dinner spcecheo occasionally in England, and there are several ladies of title who do the thing very creditably Women In tho ClviJ Service, Women trnva n long way to travel yet before they establish their equal footing — itt the civil service. "It is a ruggnd, up hill road in the bargain. Miss Mary Alexander, of Philadelphia, last spring passed the best civil service examination ever recorded in this country of anybody, male or female. Her name went on the list for appointment; it is on the list still. Miss Alexander has no appointment. Women are not in demand for anything higher than typewriters Bud stenographers, and the lower pay- Ing places in the civil service departments, the places paying $600 to $900 a year. If now and then a woman gets a better office, it ia tho exception. For the higher paying clerkships the chiefs wont men and voters, no matter how good an examination a woman has Learning from the Japanese. Rev. Arthur SI. Knapp was sent by the American Unitarian association to Japan. He has returned, and.-in a sermon, reported his experiences. He found tho Japanese gentle, childliVn and trustful, with the faults of children. • Mr. Knapp goes back this month to Japan, He will remain there fouryears. If he progresses as he has already done among tho Jupa, ho may return to America full Hedged in the Buddhist faith 08 BO many of his fellow countrymen already ore. (n Europe, too, it is a fad at present to take up Buddhism. Mr, Knapp made this remarkable statement: "I bave> been sent, to Jjpan," he Bald, "not as a EjtMlonary.

I come beck to report tuol not ouly la tills faith of yours practically identical with what the Japanese hare, but that wo have weli-nlgh a* much to team from them cm to teach " Th« preacher evidently agrees .with that Japanese nobleman who, having traveled all over this country, was asked if he would not like to live Hera His r^ply was: "What baa America to offer to a Japanese gentleman?" Great Columbia. Retired United Suites Quartermaster General Mcigs has been dipping at once into statistics and prophecy in a late number of Science. He has figured out' of his head what the population of this republic will be in 1990. Our people have nearly tripled in number in the forty years since 1850. It is to be considered that since the merflory of men only now in the bloom and prime of manhood we have grown from 23,- OOOiOOO to 67,240,000, that being the estimate which Gen. Meigs makes for the 1800 census, which \s tho eleventh Tlio year 18110 ifr tlso iiunYirftdtli ai'iitt-' versary of tho year when the flrHt census was taken. Then we had a population of not quite 4,000,000 all told. With what golf-complacency tlio Americans of 1850 must have looked back on tho poor, little 4,000,000 that our country held in 1790. Juat so, if all goes well, the Americans of half a century hence will look back on us and on our. insignificant 07,000,000, for in 1910 tho country will have 283,822,877, and in 1990, at the same rate of increase, tho population of the United States will bo 1,203,502,248. At present the total population of the world is popularly supposed to be 1,400,000,000. Gen. Meigs estimates our growth during tho next century at 83.8 per cent, each decade, which is slightly less than it has been during the past century. Beyond a doubt the United States will Ixs the head and home of the English speaking people on the globe. Russia might outstrip us in growth if she had a liberal government and a mild climate, her population being already 103,913,040.' But as it is we havo nothing to fear from. Russia. We have only to stand fast together and march on to glory.. 7th District W. C.T. U Convention. The secretary pro. tern of the W. C. T. U. convention held at Morrison last week, sends the following report of the meeting: At the Thursday morning session, the enrollment committee reported forty delegates present.

There are fastnesses in ita mountains that to this day have never been explored; retreats believed by some to be the homo of Indian adepts who have conquered the infirmities of the flesh and of mortal mind, and who live on for centuries, like Bulwer's Zanoni. It is interesting to know that a Siberian traveler proposes to explore Thibet thoroughly and find out all that he can about it. He will be accompanied by a Chinese escort and take the route along by the Chinese wall. It is to be hoped he will finally bo able to set at rest the question whether there are people in Thibet 500 years old. was taken to aid the State donation fund. Report of treasurer was ac. cepted.

Since 1880 it has increased nearly 78 per cent., A far tetter showing than many ports of tbe north can make. Manufactures have increased over 100 per cent., and now amount to 5051,203,600. The south has now 80,886 mllea of railway, also more than twice what eke possessed in 1880.

Especially this ia true if the children are made to open their mouths freely and form words and syllables with the tip of the tongue, the tips and teeth, instead of back in the throat.

In the awful floods at Johnstown, in Pennsylvania, from 6,000 to 8,000 lives were lost and 130,000,000 of property de- ttroyed.

Young Joseph goes for a vacation every Bummer to Camp Lake, Wis., and while there a year ago he saved the lives of two people whose boat had become up- get. At the same place again thia season, and only about two weeks ago, the young man saved three lives. A email party had come over to Coinp Lake from Kenoshs and went for a sail upon the lake. There were llva of them and the boat was capsized. Young Brown chanced to witness the accident and at once secured a small boat and pulled to the rescue?, assisted by a lad named Frank Yuw, With tuuch pluck end ooolnosd Brown managed to sava three of tho party.
