Iu the news columns of the Journal today will be found a splendid tribute oy General H. V. Boynton to tne bravery of the Indiana boldiers on tne baltletitjicl of Coicltamauga. The letter was addressed to idilor of tho indlauttpolls Journal and the lai- ter commented cm it as follows: liunib ibbuo la printed a leue r from Gua.H. V, buya.ou, a,n UaU) sOiaier m w&ica he pays a, glowing u-iome to Indian* regiments la tne battle of Chlckamuugd. No Stale In the Union nas mude a record ia one ba.no which exceeds that which, in point of numbers and valor, Indiana made on that btooay field. Her .sons paid u full bhare of that which is the price o( valor and devotion on the field of uaruage. Briefly as Gaoeral Bo^nicm has told this story of the loyalty ana valor of Indiana regiments in that decisive battle, be has told It in a manner which will fill the hearts of the SOQS and daugLtars of Indiana today with elation. As IB wen Known, the federal government naa rondo tne field of Ohicka. maugu a, national parlt. Other state* nave already taken the Initiative in appropriating mouey for monuments to marie tne places where their regiment* acqulued themselves with more in»n-orecui on the most bloody of bat- 4 lenola». With forty-five org^uiza- lions, Ohio haa appropriated $95.000, and her monuments are already in place. Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania aud even Kansas, with one regiment In the battle, have appropriated sM 000, $20.000 and other amounts corresponding to the Dumber of organizations which represented these states in tne conflict. Indiana had thirty-seven organlza* lions in the battle of Chickamauga, probably the largest number of any state in proportion to its population. Indiana has not yet voted a dollar to build a monument in honor of her valorous sons. A commission has marked the positions in a manner which calls forth the commendation of General Boynton. A bill Is.jio'w.-well advanced In both branches of the legislature appropriating $40,000-.1 or': the erection of suitable monuments to .tell to tbe world tbe conspicuous part Indiana took on that historlo¥eld. Thus far it has met with no opposition, and it should meet with none. Such a heritage of valor and sacrifice as Indiana sons who fOBght ani died at Chicks- mauga bequeathed to a state for all time is too precious to be measured by a few thousand dollars when that service Is to be commemorated.

CONCERNING people who have succeeded in getting up in the world, the New York Press gives some instances of Gothamltes and others: "Ex-Mayor GUroy was Harry Genet's valet; Abram S Hewitt was a plodding tutor till he married Edward Cooper's sister; Collis P. Hunt- Ington clerked In a general store In San Francisco for his board and clothes; Marcus Daly was 'born in Jer-sy City In a wagon, an' wor-rked for-r two dollar-r a wake;' Robert Bonner was a typesetter; Hamtnerateln sold cheap cigars and Invented a cigar roller, which he sold for $500,000; Tamauffo drove a coach in Torino; Wachtel was a postilion in Vienna, and m&de a great;iurore here by the crack of his whip, an extraordinarily artistic performance which the Coaching Club has never mastered. Campaolnl was a blacksmith; Henry E.

And so to tbe end of the chapter." PRETENSE;. Bab Hay» tt «« the Cardinal of Today. Vice Special Correspondence. Nrw YORK, FeV> •«. 1895. It preached itself to me lu is way. She had said to me, "come m.d IUOCQ with me on Wednesday," ana 1, thinking it meant a chop and a cup of tea and a bit of toast, gladly accepted'-the Invitation. But when I got, there, I found my lady in goigeous negligee, there were seven other guests, and, in the little dining room was a luncheon fit, as Mother Goose says, "to eeti before a king," Now, I happened to lino* that her husband waa a clerk who got a very small salary, and that she hud no fortune of her.own; consequently, this elaborate luncheon either represented debt or theft. Theft in this way, that just so much comfort would be taken from the hard working husband, comfort that he had a right to have, to gratify the pernicious vanity of a womiin. I could scarcely take a mouthful, and all the time I thought this one thing—the cardinal vice of American women la—pretense. THE DAUGHTER'S DIG WEDDING. Mrs. Youngbueband, whose people are kind and loving, who'have a comfortable income but many mouths to fill, go into debt that their daughter may have such a wedding as she de- slree. She appears in white satin and la followed by a troop of bridesmaids In dainty frocks. There ie a large reception, a rich supper, and ihe going away on a wedding trip, for which Younghueband himself has had to save money, and which com* mon sense tells him would have been better invested in furnish! ng a homo than in dying around the country and staying at expensive hotels. But Mrs. Younghusband has DO Idea of sinking, as the calls it Into being a domestic woman. She proposes to wear the white satin frock aod all of the expensive gowns that formed part of her trueseau.^jsb.e meets other women who are like herself. With much pretense, they announce their reception days, and offer weak tea, weaker punch and stale cakes to the curious crowd who come to gratify by their presence, and laugh once they are well away. Every one of them knew that much-mirrored bookcase was a folding bed, though nobody pretended to have this knowledge, and everybody knew, though this was ignored, that the oft-referred to maid was pimply a slavey from the boarding houae kitchen, induced by the glitter of a dollar to act in the capacity desired for the one afternoon. Sometimes Mr. Youngbusband GRINDS, AND GRINDS, AND GRINDS until he makes somethingof a fortune; .and sometimes, If he happens not to be over^strong, he drops at-his post; and, sometimes he needs the dollars eo badly, at least he thinks he needs them, that he steals them, and the days follow one another until there comes one lawful day' when he is branded as a thief and then all 'the world that knew Mrs. Youngbugband sympathizes with her. - Now, _my friend, wouldn't it bare been baiter, if at the very beginning everything had been arranged differently? Suppose Mrs. Younghusband had had a trosseau suited to her position in life, and that her wedding trip had been to, the little nest her husband had made for her; that her hospitality had been represented by good, honest food, and an honest welcome. But, alas! the average woman is eaten up with a desire to appear more than she ia, and her prayer, if she ever prays, Is "give me more and more of of this world's goods, and if I may not have them give me the knowledge to appear as if I do have them." THE SO-CAXLED SWELL. There is young Charlie Starvation who dresses well, more than well, fashionably; whose drees clothes »re immaculate, who tenda bouquets and bonbons to various youn^ women, and who is invited out everywhere. Now. Charlie Starvation it ashamed to tell the truth, or to live it. ; He is a oltrk In a shipping office, but the people]he goes among believe that he is one> of the firm. II be live* *. comfortable life and wasn't defendant in that e^eri lasting law suit of "Back vs. Stomach," he would have .a comfortable place in which to live rather than a poor room on the top floor of a cheap boarding house. And .yet now, if' it weren't for tne dinner* 1 to wnlch be goes, he would be hungry many time*. He 1* another who falls: down before the god of pretense, and is only anxloui c t6 ; servehlm well, and appear what be is riot. Sitting next to you happens to be MlsaBlueblood. She Is long past forty, and ba» an extremely bitter tongue. Everybody la afraid of her. She knows whose mother was hrat a washerwoman, and then married an inn keeper. She knows whose grandfather was a peddler and whose father worked on a railroad. She falls to see any honesty in properly earning money, and doesn't hesitate to curl her lip and make bit Ing speeches about that world which is rich In healthy red blood, and has not become diseased by continual intermarriage. WHY SHE HIDES HE11SELV. MlssBlueblood sits in her room with ber door locked for a good many hours every day, and the servants whisper that nertainly all that fine linen work she does cancel be for herself. She would insist that it was if she were asked about It. Now the truth is, that her rich friends pay her for thic> work, and yet she is ashamed to toll that sbe earns money. She thinks It would affect her position socially. The woman whose standing in society is governed by her pretending to be what sbe is not, is as if fihe were on the ice bridge of pretense, which very eoon the bright sunshine of honesty will melt, and those who rely upon It will fall', to be covered by the waters of lorgetfuloess and never be heard of again. I tell you ills tee sin, this wicked pretense, that is making our women dishonorable and our men thieves. Men who love women want to gratify their wished, and too many have done It at the expense of loss of character. Ills pleasant to know that one's grandfather was honest, but If he were an honest peddler he is better worth claiming than if he'were a gentleman by pretense, Little Mrs. Cheerful, who keeps house in a bit'of a flat, t&lki about "My apartments," She keeps one servant, and speaks of her as "the -maid-" When she Is able to have two the cook, whose knowledge of cooking extends to what is known as plain fare. SHE CALLS "THE CHEF." And so It goes on and on, and everybody seems to be trying to appear what they are not, and everybody thinks thai everybody else is fooled and nobody is. As an evidence of the possibility of pretense and the way it may be put down, I happen to know of a flat mveelf with a history. It was inhabited at one time by an excessiTely charming literary woman, who had the good fort'ine to marry a man of wealth. After ber marriage, she went to live in a country place on Long Islacd. quite near to one of the fashionable olubs. One afternoon she was among the many women there, who were about that woman who Is at onco the most fascinating of women and cleverest of writers; a woman who does not need to write, for she Is Immensely rich, but whose books have been wonderful d3llneatlons of men and women. The former slave of the quill was anding fault with the houee la which she lived,:and which, by the bye, was much better than any sbe had ever had. .She Bald, with a toss of her head: "Really, I scarcely know how I endure it; of course, we are having it remodelled and everything possible done to it. but until It is entirely made over, I shall never call It anything but the hut." mts. CRCGER'S POINTED QUESTION Quick as a flash, up went the diamond framed monocle to the «ye of Julian Gordon, and she ssld, with her inimitable drawl, that drawl that is so perfectly well bred, "May I ask you what you used to call the flat that you lived In on Cotton avenue?" There was no au- swer to the question, but nowadays, the flat on Cotton avenue between Velvet and Plush streets. Is invariably called "The Hut," because for once, honesty downed pretense. How far djes it extend ? Not long ago young Blgmouth, the ion of a well known clergyman, coolly said: "I despise minister*; they are all frauds. I don't believe in anything, and I •hall always do exactly as I please. But of course I am going to study for the ministry, for, with father'* reputation to back me and my good looks, Til get a soft berth, 'hare all the women running after me, and all the money I want." And he was ordained the other day. He is "quite a* vicious as an; so called man about town, and yet he puts on an Immaculate robe of pretense, and then laughs because the Harry Frank's Great February Clearance Sale! Will eclipse any previous sale known. We calculate to out-do any attempted in our career of over 30 years. We must reduce stock to make room for larg.e order placed with our factory at New York.

FLORA. NEW YORK. world is BO easily fooled. And THERE IS MR. CHIVALRY FRANCHISE. He was on the Reform ticket. Ee was going to clean out the political drain. He made no end of speeches, of which the keynote was reform, reform, and always reform. Now he ii in. And he laughs to himself, and Bells the offices that are under his control ana fills his pocket with money gotten by dishoneat practices, and etlll Is brazen enough to go to public dinners and regret that his power Is oot greater, so that he might do absolutely as the people wish. It is our national vice, and it comes I suppose, from our youth. ALL KINDS OF HUMBUGS. It is encouraged by the sad truth that thoroughness Is not required In anything. James Cheek. Esquire, who yesterday was a plumber, tomorrow, because of his fireat wealth, edits a newspaper. Dr. Quack, who ooly knows tbe A B C of his profes- aion, manages to get a certain sort of notoriety, and he is called when those near and dear to us need attention. Mr. Braes, whoee name you see in the paper every morning and wnoee knowledge of law ia confined to trickery, Is eagerly sought by widows and orphans to save tbe little remnant of money that the living are trying to steal from the dead. itr. False Metal sells me a spoon marked Sterling, which is silver plated. And we accept all this pretense, and try to believe that what we buy has the veritable hall mark on it. We should demand that our doctors and our lawyers are really men of learning, at least in their special branches. We should demand that the editor of a paper should comprehend good English, and not mistake disgusting personality for honest news. We should offer honest hospitality and not the miserable pretense of It. to our .friends. We should live, all of us, within our means. Then there would be fewer men in the peni tentiary, a less number of women would go to the dogs, and there would be more happy homes where the voices of Utile children, play ing cheerfully and lovingly, ardently, would constitute the music. BOWlSG TO A FALSE GOD. A sermon? Perhaps it is, but is cuts me to Ue heart to see our bright, pretty American women bowing down to this false god, and to realize that he rides over our generous, loving men as If he were in the car of Juggernaut, killing in them all honesty of purpose and hope of happiness. Stop short and live your life as it was intended to be. Make it as beautiful as you pit ase. Let it be fair and just. There !• nothing in this world half eo good as justice, because real justice 18 tempered with merojr. and it Is what we all yearn to have given to ui. though we may call It by a different name. Think it all orer.my friends- think of It as a mean vice, as a contemptible one, and when you do look at it In that way, I do believe that you will get rid of it, for there is nobody who has sncb * poittlve faith in th« uprightness of the American woman and the American man as their present preacher,* BAB.
