[Entered u second-claw matter at the Lognu- po'rt j-ott Office, yebraurr 8. 1888.1 THURSDAY MORNING FEB. 28. THE National Council of Women In lesalon at Washington discussed the topic, "Equal Pay for Equal Work" on Monday. The leader In tbe discus- slon read a paper on women as a factor In tbe modern business world, and contended that women should receive compensation for thoir labors on Iho same basis aa men. There had been a marked Improvement, she said, in the condition of working women though there wu.8 still much to be desired. Susan 13. Anthony took the ground that women can not expect equal pay for equal work until they havo equal rights before the law an huve tbo ballot. Miss Miller of Chi cngo made the sensib'e remark tba women In order to secure equal pa should act more instead of announc ing what .they intend to do, It is undoubtedly the fault of tb women theratelves when the. arc not paid the same for worl as men . are paid. The mei who follow callings that womci buve entered certainly would b pleased to see them demand tbe fam wages as those paid men. Ji fact, however, in many lines o work, to which women are wcl adapted, they are now able i> make as much or more than th stronger eex. Whoro they receive less it is often their own fault.

LOTIGE has contributed to the March number of the Forum an article entitled "Our Blundering Foreign Policy" in which he severely arraigns the administration at Washington for its policy in deal- Ing with Samoa, Hawaii and Japan. Ho says: "If the Democratic party has had one cardinal principle beyond all others, it has been that of pushing forward the boundaries of the United States. Under this administration, governed as it is by free trade' influences, this great principle of the Democratic party during nearly 11 century of oxlstence'has been utterly abandoned. Thomas Jefferson, admitting that be violated the Constitution while he did t, effected the Louisiana purchase, but Mr, Cleveland has labored to over, brow American Interests and American control in Hawaii.

Ii ill undoubtedly facilitate the work of he police. The Indianapolis police eadquarterswere fitted up with long istance/phones this week, A Singular Morhod of Communication Used by NiitlveH In ATrlcH. The "talking drums" of equatoria Africa are something which puzzle the traveler who sees what can be done with them, said Prof. Garner, . whose name has become universally known on account of his investigations into the speech of the monkey family. '. first came across ''talking drums' when I was on my way up the Cam eroon river in a territory about four degree north of the equator. While TVU were sailing up the river I noticec a peculiar beating of a drum which seemed to be answered by another some little distance off. 1 asked one of the natives with me what the mean ing- of the dmmiuiiiEr was. He list oncd a moment, then said: "That's a fisherman down at Uic river shore in front, ot the town of Cameroon," which was then not in sight. "He is cnllin the natives to come down to the shore to "buy his lisii. He is telling them by beating his drum: 'Come down :inc lynv inv fish. 1 have three Inrge ones and two smaller ones and many other:smaller. All fish caught to-day." Then lie explained that the other (1mm J. heard was u. rival fisherman who was beating his drum to ilie inhabitants o1 the town. "He lies. His fish are not I're.-di. They were caught yesterday. I have seven ht tham." 1 thought my native followers, clover romancer. but lie insisted that- that was the significance of the drum-beats, and told me ho would prove it to me when we got to town. When, we arrived opposite to the town, to satisfy my curiosity, I asked the native to show me the fisherman. We took a boat and were soon at the landing of the town. There, sure enough, was the fisherman still beating his .Irum, and in his boat (1 took the trouble to count them) lav three large fish and two small ones, besides imii:erons very small ones, jnst as licu'i been described to me from the drum-bents by my man. The fish did not look very inviting, and must surely have been a clay old. Wu paddled to another point where the rival fisherman was beat. ing his advertisement to the townsfolk. Jle had seven large fish in the bottom of his boat, and he explained to my man that the other fishermen had been fishing v.p in the brackish watersabove the town a.r.d bad been unsuccessful, whereupon he tried to dispose of some stock lie had left over from the day before. This was my first experience with talking drums, and it puxxied' me to account for this method of communication, inasmuch as the natives had not tlte least idea of an alphabet. Some little time after this I was at a town nnd desired to get a boat and several men to take me further up the river. When 1 told the natives wha.t I wanted Uioy told me tha.t they \vonlil have a. boat vcme down the river from a town Some twelve miles above, a.s thi? wa.s the only boat which they knew of '.hat would be suited for my purpose. When they a.sked me how many men I wanted and had gotten the purticu- .ars, one oC the natives took a drum to the shore of the river and began to beat .t in a sti'ange manner, .sounding in rhvthm something like the tick of the Ajlcgraph ias'rnmcnt. The drum was .inlilce those which they used for dancing, being more cylindrical in form. It was about three feet long and six inches n diameter. The shell was made of wood, burned ont, and it looked like bamboo. There were holes in the side and in the end. through which the sound passed. The head wa* covered with skin. The native sat down and jlaced the drum before him. Then he jeat with his finger thiS'Strangc tattoo, which he kept up continually until, far in the distance away up the •iver, I hoard the faint noise of another drummer beating the same thing. The drummer, as soon as he found that lis fellow up at the next town was repeating th«: message correctly, stopped. '. then listened, and soon the drumming above ceased, and away oil so faint ,hrvt only 'occasional beats could be distinguished, I heard another drummer. I was then told that ray message would be repeated from town to town int.il it arrived at its destination. I asked if I would know whether the >oat would come, and they told me I vould receive an answer. Some time, after this 1 "again heard, drum-beats and a native told roe thai; the3" had re- eived word that the boa.t would leave and arrive here at such a time. The >oat arrived just when the drum mes- enger said it would, and this proved o me that the natives of Africa have a ure means of communication oy drum- jeats. They told me that all kinds o£ nessasres were repeated from town to own by drum-beats. The towns are roru one to two miles apart, and the .rumming can be heard distinctly at hat distance. They can call names of an individual, represent nouns and verbs ,nd some few adjectives. Even after laving this strange system of communi- ation demonstrated to me, I donbted. >o when. I was spending my time vith Capt Buchan, who had lived in Vfrica for re-is and was'well acquaint- d with the characteristics of the vari- us tribes, I asked him concerning 1 the matter. He verified what I told him, nd, to demonstrate more fully, called lis boy and told him to drum for a certain man in the town above- It was ut a short- time until that wanted per- on appeared. Then some time after this 1 was talking with E. J. Glave, who was six years with Stanley in the 'onsro basin. He told me of other tribes who used drum-beating as a means of communication, lie named the Balolo and Balola tribes as being quite expert. He mentioned an experience be had while located at Lu- kalia. He heard of a herd of elephants which were on a rampage on the opposite side of the Congo, about twelve miles from the town. He went out to hunt them, but after searching for some time was unable to locate them. He had to go bask to the town, so some of the natives of the town near the place where the elephants were supposed to be told him they would let him know if the herd came about aq-ain. That night he was awakened between ten and eleven by a native. who told him that the herd of elephants had returned and were tearing up the plantations on the outskirts of tiie town. Tiie message had been received by drum-beats from one town to another, lie started out and arrived there before the e.lephants departed. The message had been repeated just four times in the twelve miles it had come. ' It is puz/.ling to form a theory as t ho\v these natives accomplish the i snll.s which they do. If they had an alphabet, or the knowledge of one. yo could find an explanation there. Hut as ti matter of fact, they are utterl devoid of the knowledge of a alphabet. Thnonly explanation whicl 1 can make of the matter is that the have a phonetic formula of some kind They have certain drum-beats am combinations to represent certain phonetics and perhaps syllables. It is certainly not alphabetical, as our telegraph system is. A language has fron forty to fifty phonetic elements, si with combinations of bents to repre sent these and other modifications na tives arc abie to communicate. The loudness or softness of the beats seemed to suggest, more than the intervals. There was very little differ ence in the intervals, scarcely euongl to make me think that they alone tndl cated the various phonetics. Of course the intervals had something to do with but the loudness of the beat seemet to carry more importance. However it is done, it is indeed wonderful to have a.n ignorant lot oil uncivilized peo pie without an alphabet formulating a means of communication which is akin to the telegraph code of this country Fro:.n all sources of information ! learned thi.t they were able to senc messages of all kinds, such as woulc be used in the ordinary affairs of life and business. But there are many more interesting facts we could learn of the natives oj Africa. For instance, if it were generally known what wonderful system oJ politics these barbarians have, and Lhcir conception of government and enforcement o£ law, the statements of those brass-buttoned officers sent out DV various countries who poke at the natives until they arc forced to kill, as ;o the necessity of killing such large numbers in self-defense, would receive ut little credence.—Pittsburgh Dis- jatch. • WELL-BR'ED MANNERS. Harry Frank's :nli:s to Ho Observed AVhcn Out in Society, >.i;i.niicr is a little hard to define. It s something to "be felt, the expression if a person's life and thought. One j-irl has a bi-ightaud vivacious manner, ind another is calm and dignified. One -emincls you of the stars, another of ireu'orks. Grandmamma's manner is gentle and tranquil, Cousin Hob's is im- )ulsive and hurried; little Miss l°inch las a manner both fussy and fidgety and Laura Belle has the manner of a queen. The rude und brusque young person makes her companions uneom- ortable. The well-bred person makes hose about her happy. No well-bred person has bad manners, though such a person may have a shy or awkward or eserved 'manner. The latter may be ne ; s misfortune, the former is one's fault. I am glad that the girls a,re returning to the beautiful courtesy of bending the knee and the body as well as the head; it is a much prettier and more graceful reverence than, a mere bow. Nothing about manner in ayoung girl is so bewitching as deference, the paying attention to older people^ and showing kindness to younger ones, and setting everybody at ease. If you are in doubt how to behave on any occasion, look at, the people about you, and see -what most of them do. The majority are generally right. There arc one or two rules alwa^-s to be .observed. You speak to your hostess when you go to a reception or a party, and you wish her good-night when you leave. At the table you wait until the lady of the house is seated before you scat yourself. You thank everyone who does you a service. You are careful not to interrupt conversation; you. do not set older people right, even if you. know that they are mistaken; you do not try to get the best place yourself, you endeavor to give that to your friend. In the street you do not attract observation by loud talking or laughter. If yon are in a public conveyance, as a car or a ferry-boat, for instance, you yield your seat to the elderly lady or the old- gentleman, or the tired mother with a child in her arms.—Harper's Young People. i CS'-Secretary Carlisle's estimated surplus is no doubt Isased on his hopes of increased importations.

Why It J'uy* to Rulv Omin, Grata «n* The growing of grass and grain and the feeding of them ont to stock on the' farm go v.vll together. It is an.item to grow the largest crops of grain and : grass ami to market them so :is to re-' ceive the most for them. The manure from the stock is needed to keep up tbe| fertility of the soil in order to grow, good crops, and soiling the crops in a; more concentrated form of meat, milk,! butter and \vool secures a better price' tha.n if sold in market whole. I>otli| manure for fertilizing 1 and better prices for the grain and grass can best, be secured by feeding what is grown to, good growliiy animals until they are : ready for market and then soiling. It has boon said over and over the larger the growth and yield of the| crops the more stock it is possible to, keep and feed and the more stock fed 1 the more manure secured and the more, manuiv (.he riuhi-r thu soil and the bet- ( tor the crops.. .But nearly every farmer; of experience knows that even with' the best of management it is difficult, 1 if not impossible, to save a sufficient, amount of manure from the stock that, can be fed with what is grown on the; average farm to k^t/p np the fertility. 1 It can be made the principal depcnd-j cncc, but in a. majority of cases if the land is built up, green manuring, using, commercial fertilizers, or purchasing', feed so as to keep a. larger number pfj r.tock will be 7jcccssary. The growing of a variety of crop* and the feeding out to different kinds! of stock not only offers a better oppor-| tunity to keep up the fertility of the, farm and secure better prices for the 1 products, out it materially lessens the risk of failure and gives a more steady income, while what is grown can a!-' ways be used to a better advantage and the stock be led and prepared for market at a less cost.—X.
