IN WOMAN'S BEHALF. SOME HEROINES. A Class of Women Who Biittlo Against Odds Tliat Would Down 11 MIUJ Every Time. A woman commits no greater mistake in this world than to believe that the wealthy women of our land lead useless lives. Some lead a busy existence compared to which that of her humble sister is a luxury -of rest and leisure. 'Their work is done where you do not see it, ruy dour general woman, but it is done, well and nobly done. Their lives are not given over to social pleasures as you might be led to suppose from rending- about them in the papers. Their stations in life demand of them certain social duties, and when they fulfill these demands they are given prominence in the public prints, and you read about them. But behind the social figures are the women—as God-fearing-, as gentle, as sympathetic and as womanly as those members of "their sex who give over their entire life to the welfare of their fellow beings. From their homes go out blessings to thousands, of which the world never •hears. The noblest deeds done in this •world are the quiet charities, and many of the wealthy women are quiet, ministering- angels, whose right hands never know what their left ones do. 'There are wealthy women in New York who, more often than .the world knows of, go out in-their'"carriages, not for pleas- tire drives, tut 'On errands of "mercy, and who strew seeds of charity in many a barren place. Do not accuse me of speaking- of generalities when I say this. Again and again have I been placed in positions where I have watched their quiet workings,, and . seen, the openheartedness and genuine pleasure with •which they dispense of that store of worldly riches which has come to them In such generous measure. There are few words, however, to be •aid on the other hand. It is a common mistake among- many who live for the g-ood of others, and have the where- •withall to make this life happier and brighter for many a sorrowing one, that the great privations of this world are only suffered by those in sheer want and poverty. The very poor have their needs, and a multiplicity of them, and blessings be upon those who seek to alleviate them. But there is a certain class of women in this world for whom an all-sufficient amount of, sympathy'is felt. I refer to that:vast army of women with whom life is a daily battle. Somewhere in our small villages, oft- times in the nooks and corners of our great cities, these women endure untold heart-breaks and head-worries. Their brains reel under the great problem, •which comes back day,by day, of how to make §1 do the work of S3. You, my favored woman of comfort and easy purse, can form no idea of what that daily battle means. There are thousands of women to-day throughout this country who, although the world will never hear of them; are living heroines, •who will go uncrowned until the laurel Tvreath of God's own reward is placed •upon their brows. They are women •who, with an income of five or six hundred dollars per year, and often less, •fixe going through daily privations as keen as the blade of a . knife so that •their homes may be bright to their husbands, and food and clothing for the children be on hand when needed. These women, my friend, need a word of sympathy, a kindly pressure of the hand, a God-bless-you from a sincere leart; yea, they need something more. It is not money which these women ask or would receive- They are willing, yea, .ready to labor for what is given them, let a woman work as she may, but if she sees -her. efforts-re warded with nothing.-but adversity, if instead of going forward she sees herself and her family retreating month by month, I tell you it is enough to crush the best and strongest will. These women of •whom I write are not to be met in the •world. Dear souls, they have no time to go out except to the stores to buy their needs. They are the women who make their homes their battlefields,, They are behind the strong and sturdy men, who work in the factory, the store, and in the office on meager salaries. 3Not only must they keep up their own spirits, but often their strong natures are drained to the dregs to give encouragement to their husbands. We men can speak of women as the weaker sex as much as we choose; but I tell you, my male reader, there are struggles going on in this world borne bravely and heroically by women, which we men •would have laid down long ago if they •were given us to carry.—Ladies' Home Journal. WOMEN WHO REMAIN YOUNG. Why It Is They >"evcr Seem to Feel or Show the Flight of Time. There are some women who refuse to grow old, whose spirits defy the destroying forces of time. They are young not only to outward appearance, but are youthful to the core; in direct contrast with that natural state that affects the girl, when heart and mind .hold only the ashes of enthusiasm and purpose. The woman who will not or can not recognize the rights and the beauties oi the autumn and winter of life,-and who does not cheerfully if not gracefully accept them in her own experience is untrue to the laws of her being. It is the •woman who has no quarrel with the passing years, and who makes no desperate struggle to defeat if possible those forces that take from her one by one the attractions of person who is found worthy to receive that.youthful- ness of soul that makes all things >new to herself and to those about'her. People of this sort seem, to observers, to possess a dual nature, and to own a peculiar charm on account of it The •woman who has a wealth of experience, and at the same time refuses to grow old is prized by both young and old as s companion. The 'kind of mysterious magic that she seems to have about he: draws like a magnei and brings the -world to her feet. Especially do the young flock to he for help and sympathy. She has th strength that their inexperience eraves and the sweet persistent spirit of youth lulness that she possesses bridges the gulf of years. The hair may be snowy, the eyes may have lost their brilliancy, the shadow of sorrow may be discerncc over the brow, yet the conquering spirit has set its seal above all the signs o; physical defeat, and proclaims the victory thus of mind and heart over the laws of nature, or rather glorifies their essential meaning. But there are some who stand bufore such a condition in a critical manner; indeed many seem to regard such woman as working through a kind of black art, and as influencing her admirers by the force of its dark secrets. Such judges are always of the sort who can have no patience with those . evidences of miracles that are worked in the unseen places of the mind and heart; they are sure to make this mistake that women of rules and grooves easily fall into—that the phenomena is the result of little tricks. The mere mesmerist has tried to get at the secret, and in an unguarded moment the eyes, the lips, the gesture has betrayed her; and she has lost all. But how can this youthfulncss that shall become immortal in a woman be gained? asks one. Ah, here is the question! How much money and time and strength have been spent to discover the secret of prolonged youthfulness! The nostrum venders have flourished like green bay trees on account of this search, when close to the individual lay the means that offered itself towards the desired end; in such a simple form, however, that it was not recognized at all, or if noticed spurned as inadequate to the great result. The woman who has searched through the social avenues for help must unlearn every thing. She must, in short, give herself to gain herself, for the great secret of this womanly charm that compels worshipers is that rare sympathy, can forget private interest and put itself into the.experience of another. Can imagine and see visions with, the young creature who is just feeling within her soul the flutterings of maidenly aspirations and hopes, and is bewildered by them. The friend with an experience who^yet remembers with a thrill her own" "early dreams can help the young girl to an outlook that will enable her to receive these enchanted visions through a true light.—Christian at Work. At the -head of all blood-purifiers is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. But it's different from all of them. Whatever is claimed for this, it's guaranteed to do. The money is refunded in every case where it fails to benefit or cure. It's because it is different that it can be sold so. All diseases originating from a torpid liver or impure blood yield to it. It cleanses and purifies the system, freeing it from all manner of blood- poisons, no matter from what cause they have arisen. For Dyspepsia, Biliousness, Scrofula, Salt-rheum, Tetter, Erysipelas, or any blood- taint or disorder, it is an unequaled remedy. Nothing else can take its place. " Golden Medical Discovery" contains no alcohol to inebriate, and no syrup or sugar to derange digestion. It's a concentrated vegetable extract.; put up in large bottles; pleasant to the taste, and equally good 'for adults or children ; worka equally well all the year round. THE COUNTRY SAFE. No Reason for Fearing the Democrats In the Jfelt Congress. In speculating upon what the overwhelming democratic majority in the next house will do there is a disposition to overrate the power of that majority. If the senate were democratic and Grover Cleveland in the white louse there would be good cause for alarm on the part of conservative citi- :ens, for the house bids fair to harbor more cranks than any of its predecessors . and the wildest legislation ever neard of will probably be attempted. Fortunately, however, the republicans have a good, safe majority in the senate and a firm man in the presidential chair. The senate and the president will prevent any very pernicious legislation, however great the temptation may be to let the democracy put itself on record for the national campaign. Democrats are fond of telling what they will do with the "robber" tariff when they get a, whack at it and they talk as if that "whack" would come next winter. ' As a matter of fact—as Senator Morrill pointed out in a recent interview—they will be powerless. Public sentiment toward the McKinley bill has changed since last fall and will change still more before: the assem-: bling of congress in December. There will be no temptation for any republican senator to vote for a democratic- measure of that character, and if any •eneral tariff legislation is. attempted by the house it" will probably be promptly killed, in the senate.. , With a republican senate: and a republican president the country is safe. !rom revolutionary legislation uatil/1893 at least.—Minneapolis Tribune. mint an American Girl Needs. What an American girl needs most i: good health. If she has that she i: blessed far beyond those who have ac complishments by the score. She should, above all things else, be allowed to grow up with her womanly in stincts unimpaired, for iipon them rather than upon her training, will her happiness and success in life depend Let her nurse dolls, make clothes for them, build play houses, make mud pies and romp with the boys. As she grows up encourage her to make clothes for herself! as well as for her dolls, and to bake pies of dough instead of mud. I: she shows a taste for needle work don'- discourage her, because her knowledge will not deti-aet from her social qua! i,ties. If of a domestic turn encourage her in it by allowing her to have charge of certain branches of housework. If music is her taste, afford her every opportunity for becoming- proficient.— Pittsburgh Coin m ercial G azc tte. AVomcn a« Far Buyers. Very few women have any practical knowledge of furs. The buying anc selling of skins has been principally the business of shrewd, sharp men, bu1 in one of Brooklyn's stores there is a young woman who can tell you at once the quality of the skin in question. She has much practical knowledge of the goods she handles, and it very often happens that customers ask for her, feeling great confidence in what she tells them. This girl not only took the prize for having sold the largest number of garments through the holidays, but has also just taken, a very large order, perhaps the largest single order ever taken in Brooklyn, or possibly New York. Moreover the garment is for ,a Brooklyn woman, to be of cloth lined with silvery tipped Russian sable, the linings alone to cost .51,430. It is to be worn next winter.—Brooklyn Eagle. Won't Throw up the Sponge I That hideous ogre. Giant Despair, often fastens his clutch upon the chronic invalid. Constantly plagued by dyspepsia, biliousness and constir pation—nervous and sleepless too— what wonder is it that having tried in vain a multitude of useless remedies he is ready, figm-atively speaking, to throw up the sponge." Let the unfortunate "take heart of grace," Eos- tetter's Stomach Bitters can and will put. a terminus to his trials. It strengthens the stomach, confers nervous vigor by promoting assimilation of the food, arouses the liver when dormant, and relaxes the bowels without pain. The ability to digest and assimilate restored, the ability to sleep follows. Nothing then can stay the renewal of health but imprudence.
