There was none of that progress which involves cutting ooso from the base of supplies but a steady careful, conservative advancement of the general welfare of the masses. Fluctuations are always destructive. The unexpected and sudden shifting of values prove disastrous to those least able to cope with the situations. Speculation becomes the order of the day and panic follows. President Harrison has endeavored at all times to secure stability and with remarkable success, so much so that many business men who differ from him in political creed will vote to continue the conditions under which the country now finds itself. This is as it should be and Indiana should not fail in displaying proper appreciation of the administration. There are those who blindly vote as they were born and others who expect to find in government that which will make up for the defects in their own character or ability who will vote against the administration. Nothing can be expected of these even in the face of certain destruction to our best interests. Upon the intelligent voters of the country the administration must depend for indorsement, those who vote to indorse a good administration when they see it. Let Indiana to display her patriotism and her pride in this administration by an enthusiastic indorsement November eighth. SOW TO YOTE. Stamp in This Square.

The presidential election will be fceld Tuesday, Nov. Stb," three weeks from Tuesday next. The campaign thus far has been a quiet one, probably because President Harrison's administration has been so successful and his character so unassailable that there has been no point open to attack. So administration in tho history of tho government has been so successful viewed from either a business or a political standpoint, The American flag has been properly respected by foreign nations, the business of the government has been conducted in an economical and, business like Bab Cleverly 3iscusse* l«£ Sex JUDGE JOHNSTON'S ADDEESS. Those who heard Judge William Johnston last evening realize that the Republicans of the Tenth Congressional district have for a candidate a man who has the ability to represent the district well in the halls of Congress. Judge Johnston is sound on the republican platform and is able to tell in a forcible and logical way the reasons for the faith that is in him.- His presentation of the republican position snows a careful study of government, its objects anc its methods, and an accurate knowledge of the political history of this nation. He will command 1 the repectful attention of Congress when elected to sit in its halls and his vote will always be for the preservation and prosperity of the nation. • THE purpose and object of the republican party is the advancement and progress of America. Is it possi ble that the bright intellects of the North are mistaken in the best methoc of promoting this, is it probable that the arrogant leaders of the South know what is best for this government and are more zealous in seeking to promote its welfare? The North is for protection overwhelmingly, the South for free trade unanimously and were it no aided by Tammany Hall in New York would not have a respectable assistance in the North. Choose between these two policies. MKS. LEASE, who has been canvass ing tho southern States with General Weaver has been unable to withstand the odor of southern democracy as presented to her ia broken packages. She has made a sensation in Kansas by declaring that the southern States will be solid for Cleveland and th members of the People's party in the North should vote for Benjamin Harrison lest the defection of any republican States in the North by reason o: the People's party vote should throw the election into the House thus elect ing Cleveland. Mrs. Lease evidently has learned something. WE are building a nation ot our own, greater and grander than history has heretofore recorded. Is it not a wise policy to protect these better conditions from the less prosperous conditions of less successful nations LOUCKS, Owen, Beam, Grover and Jos' How the Pharos'has been whacked!

WOMEN AS TOILERS. «:r E-ea.a S,eeial Correspondence. I have been reading: and hearing a j ;reat deal lately about women-workers. I have read about their possibilities, about their energy, about their instinct, about their purity, and about their all-round virtues, until in sheer j disgust I wish I could find a woman who didn't know how to work; who was lazy, indifferent, and who just sat around and let people wait on her. You meet a woman in the street car who paints— I mean on canvass, not ner £ ace — and she enthuses about the women artists. She predicts that in ten years' time men will have no place ia the world of art — witb. acapi- ial A. I don't say anything:, but I think that so far there has only been one Kosa Bonheur, and one Elizabeth Thompson. ALT- KINDS Or M'OKKIKG'H'OIIEN". I get on a ferryboat, and [ meet a. woman who writes novels, and she icfroms me that she sees in the dim future nothing bat women novelists. I ponder over this, and it seems to me that Thackeray, was very much of a man; so was Dickens; so was Dumas; so was Victor Hugo, and so is Dauclet. But I don't contradict her. Then on the street I bump into a woman physician; she scoffs at the men doctors, and don't believe that \ they amount to anything; and I. j who am a bit of a fool, wonder why it j was that when God made men and j women He made them so near alike, and the disease of one must be understood to treat that of another; and I know that the women doctors do not walk the hospitals as the men do. But I never utter a word; I just siign. Then my maternal parent reads me an account of a woman clergyman. I think of \vhat St. Paul said and. feel that I should not be able to give the deference due to a PREACHER WHO WORE PETTICOATS. Somebody talks to me about a has cot made a rumpus. It has not j bsen. so long ago since I read in one j of the oapsrs (I love the newspapers!) ->VHEX LOVELY AVO5IAX KISSES. INCVT, a woman ia Canada sued a n;p.ii for $2,000 for kissing her on the cheek! She claimed that the shock was so great that she couldn't perform her household duties for two weeks. Poor thing. What would she have done if he had kissed her on the mouth. It is hoped that she won her j suit, unless, indeed, they compromised j and the wretched man agreed to prepare her for any shock that he might offer her in the future. Funny about kissing isn't it? Some people like it so much. To my way of thinking there are oalv two things in the world worth kisinsr—- one is a baby and the other is the man you love, or rather the man who loves you. I have always thought kissing Cain must have been a sort of consolation to Eve. A baby draws up | its rosebud.of a mouth, you lean over and put your lips to it, pressing them slightly, and then you get the breath I of all the llowers in that one kiss. ! KUsin°'a man is altogether a differ- I rj ' [ ent affair.- la the first place a little \voman invariably hss the better of it, because nothing delights the heart of a man so much as to stoop down and kiss a woman. He feels as the elephant does towards the mosquito--he doesn't realize its power and he fully appreciates its smallness. If I had daughters I should put weights on their heads to keep them from growing tail, for then their husbands would excuse them when they committed any folly. Nobody blamed Venus for what she did, but if Juno j had cut up capers, it not only would have been in bad taste,but by Jupiter! there would have been trouble. A student in the art of kissing informs me that a woman should kiss a man on his cheek, on the tip of his ear, on his forehead and on his throat, and let him kiss her lips. I tell this as it was told to me. It is a study I really haven't time to take up because so much practice is necessary for one to become Highest of all In Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. sense, and I hare been looking around, for it for sometime. In the mean time, while I atn forced by circumstances to stay in the effete East, I shall try and become an adept in the art of the pasteboards. SOME SIJ.LV XAMKS OF "\VOMEX, Not long ago I met a gaunt, tall, bony specimen of womankind, with a nose decidedly rosy in hue, and a method of speaking to you that was subduing; indeed it might be called snapp. She was just on the sunny side of fifty, and her sister called her "Pussy!" I felt the wildest possible inclination to laugh, and then I felt sorry for her because I blamed her own people for this nonsensical naming. She looked more like an old cat, who had gone through iaumberable fights and came out victor, than a white, soft kitten. Isn't it awful to meet women who are no longer fresh, who are called Daisy? Isn't it harrowing to tumble across a woman who is all thorns and find that she calls herself Rose? Isn't it rediculous to meet a woman nearly six feet high and hear her addressed as Tiny? And isn't it absolutely idiotic to find a colorless creature with grey eyes and ashy hair who speaks of herself as Pinky? Give me a name that you are not ashamed to see on a check or a tombstone—that is a 'credit to you while you are young, and sufficiently dignified when you are old." What the people who love us may call us is another thing—that should be done A QUACK TREATMENT. woman lawyer and enthusiastically recounts how quickly she jumped to a conclusion: and I think that that is a woman's way. But what is she going to do when it comes to her summing up? When the thing has to be reasoned out, is she going to work like a crab, backwards? I cannot understand it. According to the women workers, there will be nothing for the mec to do after thu Chicago Fair. I fully agree with them about one thing—a woman can act. It is born in her. You and I, my friends, put up your lips to be kissed and wear a pleasant smile, and somebody says, ••What a happy little woman you are," and you know you are not happy, and you know your troubles are many, but you are acting better, aad you do it better very day of your life than does any woman en the stage- Life is full of it. Acting isn't an art. A baby acts, so does my fo:i: terrier. Dear little hypocrite! He pretends he doesn't care for the milk in the cup in the least that his one desire is to give me his paw and kiss my hand: then he looks surprised whan the cap is pointed out to him, as if he didn't know it were there all the time! Some energetic woman hit a man over the head with an umbrella the other day for smiling at her. All the newspapers applauded this; act and made a heroine of the woman. Now, it is old-fashioned teaching, but it seems to roe that when women ignore smiles, stares or even word;-, they are much more womanly than when they go round banging heads Tfilih umbrellas. The best policy ia the world is never to see an-insult, theniit falls off a woman like water off a dnck's back, and she is none the worse )!or it and perfect in it. But that is an art- I do not deny. However, after the Chicago Fair there is no telling what we women may achieve. SENSIBLE CAKB PARTY FAVOKS. The great West is progressive—the great West is evidently practical. Not long ago I saw it stated that instead of favors made of satin or porcelain, or any of the trifles usual for progressive card parties, that in one large Western city, if you came out ahead of everybody else, you got an order on a furniture shop for an expensive sideboard, a brass bedstead, or, indeed an entire suit of furniture, according to the generosity of the host. The booby price was a. check that settled your wash bill, or paid for your newspapers. Now, I like that. 1 have no earthly use for the ragtag and bobtail of progressive card parties: what I want is something sensible; I hope to strike that town some day, and, perhaps— oh, joy, oh, rapture, I may get a "kitty" containing the deed for a house and lot: or, I may come off at the very end of everything, only hold a pair of deuces, and receive a check for mv ho;el bill. That is what I call when there are no strangers around, but for the world at large to know a woman, not a girl, mind you, but a woman, as Pinky or Pussy, is a disgrace to American civilization. A girl ought to be taught to write her name as it is given to her, for if it is an ugly one, she can make it beautiful by her own charms; if, unfortunately, she had fools for parents, she ought to have the privilege of altering her front name long before she changes the last one—when entering the holy state of matrimony. Somebody I know laughs at this and says, • 'You would call a man Jack, or Dick or Tom, if you loved hun, if he were ninety." Perhaps I would, but I should do it when I was alone with him, and I should preface it with two adjectives—dear and old. I certainly should not call him "Totty"or "Lambkins," as I have heard women called. •WOJIAX'S THREE XOBLE PKOFESSIOXS. And yet after the Chicago Fair women are to do everything. You see the woman is to drive the nail in, and that ib essentially the work of a man. Idoa't mean this as any old joke: I know it to be a sad and sorry truth. taking I have stood on a back of a chair with a nail in one hand and a hammer in another, and if the sail got into the place it should get. without the hammer flying back in my . face, or viciously bruising my fingers, it was due to accident; it; was never due to mv good sense. I frankly and freely confess this, and really I shall begin to' believe that WOMEN AVILL OAVX THE FUTURE when I see the nail and hammer subservient to the, feminine hand. It isn't yet. I have mr.de inquiries, and I know what I am talking about. Until it is, there is a hope in my mind that women will, as far as possible, stick to those three beautiful professions in which no man can aver reach them, even get near them—the professions of daughter, mother and wife. Yes, I think it. Tou may not agree with me, because you have- aspirations. But if you are a man, a real man, a straight-all-way-through man,' you do. You say, '' -Here, I want to take care of the women of my family," and you do it. I tell you ay friend, this being taken care of is a very good thing. The peach may be just as attractive, just as sweet, but the bloom very soon goes off it when it is displayed on a corner fruit stand: and woman can't be quite the same, not quite as fine-or quite as feminine if she has to go out and fight the world for her bread and butter. Remember, I am not saying one word against the great army of women who do this honorably and nobly, who are obliged to do it, and who, I pray God may succeed. But it is better, much bettor, if you are a woman, to be taken care of. ALT, MANNER OF NICE THINGS. It is all very nice to paint a picture and get a medal for it and some money, and to work and work to make more successes—but it is a great deal nicer . to make beautiful the home nest and to be the one who gives the loving applause for the work done. It is all very nice to write an article and have people praise you for it, and have somebody tell you what you may be in the future—but it is a, great deal nicer to make dainty little frocks for small people who, in the near future, are goicg to give you love as a reward. It is all very nice to touch the keys of the typewriter all day long, when each click means more money—but it is a great deal nicer to have some-' bo~r "I 00 '.0' •'h your heart and to realize that the money which you hold was earned for you by somebody who is devoted to you.
