He was brought here as a ''ringer" to take on-'Pomp" Bailey, but tbe latter's backers were too smart to be caught In the trap. Woman's Influence. A Swedish writer, Frau Hansson, In fcer "Das Bnch der Frauen," thus describes the relation between modern men and women: "It is a peculiar sign of the times that in spite of the many restrictions of former days men and women have never stood wider apart than at present and have never understood one another more .badly than now. The honest, unselfish sympathy, the true, I should like to say organical, union, •which is still'to be observed in the married life of old people, seems to have vanished. Each goes his or her own way. There may be a nervous search for each other snd a short finding, but it is soon followed by a speedy losing. Is it the men who are to blame? The men of former days were doubtless very different, but in their relations to women they were scarcely more sociable than at present. Or is it the women who are at fault? "For some time past I have watched life in its many phases and have come to the conclusion that it is the woman who either develops tha man's character or ruins it. His mother and the woman to whom he unites himself leave an everlasting mark upon the impressionable side of .his nature. In most casps the final question is uot, What is the man like? but. What kind of a woman is she? And I think that the answer ) is as follows: A woman's actions are more reasonable than they used to be. and her love is also more reasonable. The consequence is .1 lessening of the passion that is hers to give, which again results in a corresponding coolness on the part of the num.'' ,.;,:-,.. :• Tailor and Draper, BETWEEN ONE ANOTHER we manage to tarn oat tne but fit- tlng.eiquisitely finished and dUWn- gue suits of clothing to be seen In Logansport, We take -palne to select the latest and handsomest faorics for your Mtoctioo.

An Affflian Sew Woman. The new woman has penetrated even to the harem of the ameer of Afghanistan, where she wears male attire and does precisely as she pleases. The ameer picked her up, says a writer in The Ladies' Pictorial, on his return journey from the northern pare of his dominions a good many years ago. She hud been brought before him by an indignant father and proposed husband for punishment. She would not conform to the usages of tho country and enter the married state, though she had then reached the age when it became incumbent upon her to do so. The girl declared she had run wild all her life and did not wish to give up her freedom and be shut up in a harem. She sought the ameer's protection and obtained it. "All right,"he said. "Since you wish to be free, free you shall be, but free yotunnst also remain. That is your punishment.

But I am not certain about a word against York Tribune. her fair fame.—2f Tbe JSng-Hsli of It. The lady lawyer, Mile. Chauvin, seems likely to gain her heart's desire and to be allowed to practice. Lady barristers will certainly be a novelty, and there seems no particular reason why they should not be a successful novelty. "The gifs of the gab" has always been a woman's attribute, and when to this she adds discretion, knowledge and good looks she bids fair to prove a. formidable rival to her male competitors. Whether her prudence will be equal to her zeal, her tact equal to her enthusiasm, remains to be ' proved, bnt in cases where women have conducted their own cases they have generally done it efficiently, as those who remember Mrs. Weldonand other ladies versed in the law must acknowledge. A fresh career will now be open to women, who are already running a neck and neck race with their male rivals.—London Graphic. are Jiuw Addanu.
