The young VVootU and tlieir friend, Mr. Dobbs, were sitting, some on rustic garden seats, sonio on the thick turf, in a pretty garden, 'f he garden belonged to Uncle Ezekiel Wood. These cliildren had always lived in the small brick house next door to their uncle. They had lost their mother, and their farther depended much on Uncle 'Shekel's judgment. Uncle 'Zekel wan u bachelor, and very particular. Uncle 'Zekel wanted Rebecca to have painting lessons, wanted Sallie to cultivate her voice, wanted Randolph to go to college, wanted those youngsters, ' Bob and George, to have bicycles,—but two things Uncle Zekel did not want,—sticks and children on his grass. At the time of our «tpry, thi* peculiar old gentleman had left his. .trim white house ajHHri'3"Wmtr poodle in change of ^4bB*Eou8iikeeper mid had gone on a jour- ir=^«^' noy. "You children must not bring your traps in here," said Rebecca. ''Oh, Randolph! Need Bob and George .tug around? Amy darling, don't be a nuisance." "The fact is, Miss Rebecca, struck in young Air. Dobbs, "your uncle is not my ideal of perfection. Is this the way your uncle wonts a fellow to walk?" Mr. Dobbs tiptoed over the grass in the most gingerly fashion, finally smiting himself tit Rebe.cca's feet. "1 won't sit hard, he said solemnly, "You wouldn't sit long, if-Uncle was here," cried George. "We don't sit on Uncle's grass when lie's this side of the Connecticut." •'••'.' "Hush! Nonsense! Upon my word, QGeorge's elder brother nnd sister looked their disapproval at this speech. "But it s the place for a garden party, ' said Mr. Dobbs. "On the Fourth, now! Would the old gentleman 1 mind?" "Of course not," said Randolph. "You may say it if you like, but you can't make it true," said George. This was a favorite saying with George. "George, I w^Jl write to uncle myself, said Rebecca.jlrand ask him. But we may not gel tif-/answer before the Fourth, BO we won't wait." "Let's have a minuet and costumes, said young Mr. Dobbs. "Couldn't wo write the invitations now?" That night the invitations were sent. nnd father's objection silenced, and tne costumes arranged, tho minuet rehearsed. "Would the oldgenllemun mind? waa a question often asked by Mr. Dobbs during the next week. Young Mr. Dobbs and Rebecca! What wonders did they effect in Uncle 'Eckel's garden! * First, a place for croquet was found; then Mr. Dob.bYs attention was turned to the need of a different arrangement of the potted plants. "Really, Miss Re- bescaW cried he, "Wo cannot have this stiff effect. Will the old gentleman mind?" Next came hummocks, then a stand knocked up for the fiddles, then the little stand to be decorated. In and out. in and out the gate, went Bob, and George and Amy .watched ever by the uneasy poodle. James, the gardener was first astonished, then pleased, then troubled, until on tho morning of the Fourth he had reached a state of nervous terror, which he dared not disclose to Mr. Dobbs, and so vented on the unlucky George. "Here, you there, sir! Not another posy," he cried, as George stooped over his best geraniums. ""J'ain't iny blame," said George. "They want to fill the foot-tub." "Bjinlrill!"

Uncle 'Zekel. turning, saw a short young man in light bluestockings and a linneh duster stand- inc at the door of his hack. (It was Mh Dobbs.) Uncle 'Zekel stepped out. "Thunder and lightning!" he hwird the vounir man say, and the heavens iin- wdiutely answered with a resounding, peal of thunder. Now if there was one thing that made Uncle 'Zekel nervous it was a thunder storm. "What do yon mean, he said to his nephew, "talking tu a rascally, swearing actor! Yon, sir, stand out of my way, and Uncle 7-ekel slammed the carriage door in Mr. Dobbs's face and dtove off. George settled Imck in his corner, and fixed his eyes resignedly on the curtain tas- 8 Crash, bang went the thunder, andlittle dashes of wind, and little dashes of rain, and tongues ot lightening en me and went until with a r«sh, the torrents descended, and blotted out the world. "I hope the poodle is in,' mused Uncle 'Zekel. "1 shall speak to your father, George, about your peculiar conduct, an the company in which 1 found you. As he spoke he produced a plaited neck scarf from his valice. "Put this around your heck." "I shan't," blurted out George. "There's some people at your house- Just then the carriage drew up to Uncle 'Zekel's door. It stood hospitably open and the hall'was filled with a gayer assembly than had over graced its precincts before. Violins wsie playing, there was !n,»ghmt; exclitming, a perfect hubbub in the quiet old place. "1 ve saved the- lemonade, Ueorge, shouted the Indian. "Oh!" He dropped the lemonade, punch-bowl and all upon the ground. There was a sudden hush. Uncle 'Zekel looked about him. "Pray continue to enjoy yourselves, he said huskily, and selecting an umbrella from the rack, he stepped into the ram. "We'd better go," said one and nn- ° "Wait till after the storm," said Rebecca, calmly. "How can we get the carriage?" "Send George. • , "Never!

"What shall we ever do with George this afternoon?" - cried all Lhe young ladieF. t "Let him pass plates, said younu Mr. Dobbs. "Never!" "Help tne lemonade. "Dreadful! He's just a sieve, Mr. Dobbs. Every tiresome little detail, out it pops. He's going to be Capt. John Smith, and he's sure to talk." George provided himself with a huge mustache, a pair of high boots, a broad- rimmed hat, two old pistols, and some fire crackers. He was pleased with these arrangements, and arrayed himself <v full hour before the time. "Now, George, plcaso do not let off those crackers on UncleV grass," said Rebecca. "Haven't we been sitting on it, eating peanuts for a week?" cried George. "Here come the fiddlers." George conducted the musicians to their stand. "Uncle 'Zekel would uo mad if ho were —CjjgrejiL.ha explained. "But ho isn't you see. Come and see tho lemonade. You may drink ovc.r the edge, but don't use a glass. Rebecca says she won't wash glasses for me. Uncle's poodle is hiding in the cellar. Oh, (finger!" This exclamation was caused by the appearance of Mr. Dobbs. Mr. Dobbs wore an air of unconcern, but he did not wear his cocked hat. His coat collar would not permit its raising on his head. "It's jolly Jand .shiny," said .George, sympathetically. "Get Rebecca to take a tuck so's you can raqve your neck." '•Hush!— does it look like fury? I'm going down to blow up that Jew fellow — clear out!" ' This last remark was addressed witji a movement of the foot, to the poodle, vho had ventured from the cellar. The poodle retreated, but not without protest, which continued at regular intervals during the afternoon. It seemed best to admit the guests through uncle's house, and Boo, dressed as an Indian, and painted up by Mr. Dobbs himself, was "tationed in the front street to show the way. Tho first to arrive were ladies, and they demanded a dressing room. That had been forgotUn. There was no dressing- room. But Bob was equal to the occasion. He threw open his uncle's study. Soon Uncle's "/ekel's study was full of old-fash fill It blllU£ l*i*»* «...imi t* i I "You may say it if you like, hummed George, as he turned to the back-door. There were tears in his eyes. Even Amy blamed him, and come to think of it, he was always blamed. He looked blandly ut the ruined decoration in the garden, at the dripping flags, the salad left out in the rain, the plates, the f9rlorn lanterns. He heard Mr. Dobbs's voice in the hall. A rascally, swearing actor," Mr. Dobbs was saying. A three-cornered smile squeezed itself into George's face. Mr. Dobbs was so funny in his dripping blue satin, so courageous, so gay, that had George turned to look at him his anger must have vanished. But be would not turn. He sneaked down the cellar stairs and sat down on a barrel facing the poodle. _ "I wish I was a poodle. 1 soliloquized George. "No brothers. No^sisters. It s eaay, easy, easy all the time." The poodle whined. '•I say it is!" said George. "It s easy, easy, easy all the time." "George," said a voice from the darkness, "come here." "Oh craekity!" murmured George. He found his uncle seated on a broken chair before the furnace door. "George, there is a great chiinge of temperature. I shall light a fire." "Yes, sir." "Get the kindlers." Just then the music struck up over their heads, and Mr. Dobbs's voice could be clearly heard. "Bow to partners," said Mr. Dobbs. "First couple forward and back." "There's paper in the ash-barrel, said Uncle 'Zekel. "I have the matches. "Ladies to the right." "If you were to. exchange with the poodle, George—" ("Turn partners.") . . ••It would be a bad' thing, -a shirking thing—" ("Gentlemen to the center. ',.. "Is the actor upstairs?" "He's Mr. Dobbs,"said George. ("Chassee all.") "Dobbs, Bobbs, Cobbs, lies a rascal, sir," cried excited Uncle. "Say it if you like," said George. lis n^t true." . After that, silence reigned in the cellar. Above, the musij ceased, and the sound of carriage wheels was heard, as the guests drove away , "Now, Rebecca, let's find your uncle, said the same voice that had directed the "George." said CJncle 'Zekel, bring down Mr. Dobbs." George had dine many errands that day, but here was tho worst one! "Uncle 'Zekel's in the cellar, and you're to come down," said ho without looking at Mr. Dobbs. Mr. Dobbs threw his arm gladly about George's shoulder, "No one but Georure goes with me," he said. Soon Uncle 'Zekel stood face to face with the rascally swearing actor. "Mr. Wood, it's all my blame,' he said cheerfully. "This bla/.e is something like. I'm drenched. "You deserve your death," said Uncle 'Zekel. "That's so," assented tho young man. "But it's not that I've got, Mr. Wood." He drew a long breath. "I hope you will like me, because your niece, Miss Rebecca —oh, it's really true—1 am engaged to your niece." Mr. Dobbs threw his arm about Uncle 'Zekei in the exhuberance of his good feeling. He might as well have embraced a stone. "Your profession is that of an actor,! judge," said Uncle 'Zekel calmly. Air. Dobbs laughed. "I enter the theological school in the fall." "A minister of the gospel!" Unclfl 'Zekel was aroused for once. He stood up to survey this blue' satin young> man. '•For now Rebecca, clad also in blue satin, stood beside Mr. Dobbs, • Uncle 'Zekel turned with great sad nesa upon his nephew George. "George, you may go, you are of too curious a disposition, sir; altogether too curious." "You may say so if you like," hummed George, as he went up the stairs. This lost mental shock had restored to his usual philosophic calm. He wont to have ice cream with Amy in his own bock Every particle of tat which is skimmed off soup, all tho sewet left front steaks and chops should be saved, rendered, clarified and strained into a dripping pot. It not only saves lord, but is much better than it for fryinjar doughnuts, and fritters are better fried in it, as they will not absorb so much of it, but it must be thoroughly cleaned first. 1'lNKAl'PI.E SKKllBKT.

Wis., July 17.—A peculiar case has arisen in the punishment of John Wurpooso, the Indian, who committed incest.and was found guilty tit Oshkosh yesterday before Judge 13mm. The only penalty prescribed by tho United States for such an oft'enso is death, Capital punishment, however, is forbidden by the laws of Wisconsin and is ugainst tho USUKO and settled policy of tho Hate. The opinion of Judge lJuun is that tbe sentence of death must bo pronounced in this case, and that the lawn of the state cannot interfere with those of the federal government.

Hull the strawberries, and as soon as you have about a pound ready weigh them with three-quartern of their weight of sugar in a porcelain-lined kettle. Continue until the kettle is nearly full, then set them at the back of the stove. When the strawberries are well covered with juice bring them forward where they will boil up rapidly. Stir them only enough lo prevent their burning. After they have boiled rapidly for ton minutes skim them carefully and bo- gin putting them into rarw und jars, which should stand in boiling water_ to prevent the hot preserves from cracking them.

The Washington Post recently presented brief statements of the religious _ views of various literary people, from which the following are taken : . . , . Edna Dean Proctor, the New England poetess, says that no religious creed is possible to her but a belief in the boundless love of God for all His creatures, and in his intent and power to brine them all ultimately into harmony with himself, in accordance with his gracious invitation, Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rust. She believed that in our present state grief and pain are a necessity for spiritual development, nnd that punishment for wrong is disciplinary and remedial, lliis view, she thinks, should give us sympathy with every humon being and bring hope for this life and the life to come. Rose Elizabeth Cleveland expresses her views in tho following: "My belief is in a religion which looks into poor-houses and idiot asylums and penitentiaries, and not the darkness of great cities by night, and still believes humanity reclaimable, however marred or fallen, and infinitely worth saving; a faith which contemplates the catastrophy of moral obliquy and 'spiritual suicide; of the uiole and bat life of thousands and thousands of us; of the leprous human beings who are constantly thrown upon the shores of life to contaminate and curse, and yet which says, with Longfellow, 'I believe the feeble hands and hepless, probing 'blindly in tho darkness, reach God s right hand in the darkness, and are lifted up and strengthened." Louise Chandler Moulton says that her religious belief is expressed in the following three quotations. The first is from Tennyson: Oh yot wo trust that somehow good Wlll'bothi! final goal of 111— • To nnngs of nature, Bins of will, Defects 'of doubt and taints of blood. That nothinR walka with aimless feot; That no ono life shall bo destroyed, Or cast n» rnhblnh to tho void, When Uod hath madothe «lle complete. The second is .from Darwin : We cannot know tho unknown, but wo can do our duty. The third is from Stevenson, who writes Flemming Jennings that he used to say: A man must bo cither very wise or very vain lo venture to break with any generally urecolvcu won of ethics. She adds: "These quotalions will reveal to you thai I reverence Ihe moral laws founded on Ihe teaching and experience of the post — lhat I am conscious of niy own blindness as to the meaning and distiny of life, and that, I trust only in that God who is love."

"If you must have it in lh« possible words, Mr Van Punk, Tfie first mention of whipping as a bun- ishmeht, says American Notes and Queries, occurs in the fifth chapter of Exodus, Where we find that Pharaoh whipped the officers of the Israelites When they did not furnish the required number of bricks Which they were compelled to make every day* In ancient times the Romans carried whipping as a punishment farther than any other nation ( and their judges were surrounded With an army of divers kinds of Whips well calculated to affright the offenders that might be brought before them. The mildest form of whip was a flat leather strap called the ferula, and one of the most severe was the flngelltim; which was made of plated ox-hide and almost as hard as iron. Not only waa flagellation _ in various forms used as a judicial punishment, but it was also a common practice to punish slaves by the same means. The Roman ladies were greater offenders and even more given to the practice of whipping their slaves than the men, for in the reign of the Emperor Hadrian a Roman Indy was banished for five years for undue cruelty to her slaves. The practice of whipping was in fact so prevalent that it furnished Plautus, in several cases, with incidents for his plots. Thus, in his Epicidus, a slave, wno is the principal character in the play, concludes that his master has dncovcred all his tchemes since he saw him in the morning purchasing a scourge at tho shop where they were sold. ... From ancient times the use of whipping can be traced through the middle ages down to, comparatively speaking, more modern times, when it is easier to find records of the use of the rod. In Queen Elizabeth's time the whipping- post was an established institution in almost every village in England, the municipal records of the time informing us that the usual fee to the executioner for administering the punishment was "4 pence a head." In addition to whipping being thought an excellent corrective for crime, the authorities of a certain town in Hunt- ingdonshire must havo considered the use of the lash as a sortjof universal specific us well, for tho records of this town, mention that they paid 8 pence "to Thomas Hawkins for whipping two people that had the suiall-nox." In France and Holland whipping does not seem to have been so generally practiced. The last woman who was publicly whipped in Franco by judicial decree was Jeanne St. Remi dc yalois, comtcsse do la Motto, for her share in the abstraction 'of that diamond necklace which has given point to so many stories. In connection with the history of flagellation in France may bo mentioned the custom which prevailed there (and also in Italy) in olden times of Indies visiting their acquaintances while still in bed on the morning of the "Festival of the Innocents, "aind whipping them for any injuries, either real or fancied, which the victims may havo done to the fair flagellants during the past year. One of the explanations given for the rise of this practice is as follows: On that day it was tne custom lo whip up children in the morning, "tlmt the memory of Herod's surrender of the icnocenls might stick the closer, and in a moderate proportion to act thecrueltie again in knife"." There is a story based upon this practice in the tales of the queen of Navarre. Among the eastern nations the rod in various forms played a prominent part, and from what we read China might be said to be almost governed by it. Japan is singularly free from the practice of whipping, but makes up for it by having a remarbably sanguinary criminal code. Russia is, however, par excellence a home of the whip and the rod, tho Russians having been governed from time immemorial by the UHO of tho lash. Many of tho Russian monarchs were adepts in tho use of tho whip, and wero also particularly ingenious in making things unpleasant for those around them. Catherine II. was so particularly fond of this variety of punishment (which she often administered in person), that it amounted almost to a passion with her. It was related that she carried tho craze so far one time that the ladies of tho court had to come to the winter palace with their dresses so adjusted that the empress, could whip them at once if she should feel so inclined. While tho instruments of torture used in Russia were of great variety, the most formidable "punisher" was the knot, an instrument of Tarter origin and of which descriptions diler. In its ordinary form it appears to'bo a heavy leather thong, about 8 feet in length, attached to a handle 2 Feet long, the lash being concave.' thus making two sharp edges along its entire length, and when it fell on the criminal's back it would cut him like n flexible double-edged sword. "Running the gauntlet" was also employed, but principally in the army. In this the offender had to pans through a long lino of soldiers, each of whom gave the offender a stroke with a pliant switch. Pelor the Ijroat limited tho number of blows to bo given to 12,000, but unless it was intended to kill the victim they seldom gave more limn 2,000 at a time. When the offender was sentenced to a greatir number of strokes than this, the punishment was extended over several days for tho reason above stated. Whipping, after dropping out of sight for a time in England, was reintorducod in England in 1807, in order to put a check on crimes of violence. Tho law was °" .

It Con»l»tB Simply of ft Solntlon ot Salt nnd Vinegar. "A Woman" writes from New Rochelle to the New York Tribune: 1 should like to say a few words on the subject of dogs and dog-bites. I am a lover o£ animals, especially of dogs. There ate six dogs lying around my feet while I write. Three belong to a neighbor, three are mine. Two of them 1 took off the street, "old and sick," si* years ago. In their day they had been valuable setters. 1 have been bitten by dogs repeatedly, once severely. . A pet dog of a neighbor's was very sick, and I was attempting to^ relieve it. It bit me in the left thumb, just below the nail, That member became black as for down as the wrist. It remained so until the nail came off. The owner talked of hydrophobia and said that the dog had not tasted water for two weeks. Had 1 been afraid I should, no doubt, have taken nervous fits and died. The verdict would have been hydrophobia. But 1 simply applied a solution of salt and vinegar — a In tie more _ vinegar that salt — washed the wound with it ; tied a clean rag around tho thumb, keeping it saturated well with tho solution, and moved the rag so that a fresh part covered the wonnd s at intervals. This remedy was once applied to my .wrist by a colored woman in tho south for a snake-bite. My arm was then black, hard, nnd painful. The remedy act- f.d like a charm. In two hours the discoloration had disappeared, and with it the pain, nnd only the needle mark .where the fang had entered was visible. Again I was bitten by a weasel in thn Grand Central depot. A girl had it in a bag and had placed it on a seat next to mine, remarking that it was a kitten. I placed my hand on it. Quicker than thought a couple 1 of teeth punctured tho joint of my left forefinger to the bone. _J compelled the girl to tell mo what was in the bag. My finger was badly swollen and painful before I reached home some hours after. I used the same simple remedy with the same speedy result. I have also applied it successfully in other cases. THE NATION'S POPEAT10N Potter Is l-le&sed Over the Rotnrns Are Coming 1 in, And Mpects to Have All tomes Tabulated in a Few Weeks. Description of the Method tnfstied in Doing the Counting* G T,AK:ES. Som« of the Wondern of Northern Slorrll Nevada*. About 100 miles north of Oroville, at the foot of oldIiiusen, there is a boiling lake covering several acres. The depth of the lake is unknown, but its entire surface constantly boils like a huge ketlle. The degree of heat we do not know, but we remember distinctly that it would scald the shin from the fingers in a veiy few seconds, says a writer in the Red Bluff, (Cat.) People's Cause. Our paaty agreed that it would boil an egg in four niinutes. The smell of sulphur pervaded the atmosphere about the lake, .and around its borders something like sulphur could be scraped up in handfuls. Tins lake is near Hot Spring valjey, at the base of Mt. Laasen. Between it and the nwunbiin there are, perhaps a thousand boiling, bubbling hot springs, and in. tramping about these springs the soles of a person's shoes become uncomfortably warm. The North Feather iiver, at the base of Iioasen, in its trickling snows and springs, and is a clear, cold and beautiful stream but a few feet wide flows through this community of hot springs. Some of these springs bubble up boiling water within a span of the river. Standing in the midst of these springs a peculiar sensation -is experienced. At a thousand places the earth emits a vapor of smoke, while ui, dor the surface there is a jarring, roaring noise ua il hundreds of steam engines were in operation, and the ominous trembling of the earth produces a feeling of uncertainty. A short distance south of the Boiling' lake, and near Willow lake, which is beautiful, cold and clear, there are several geysers that shoot streams of water from five to 10 feet in diameter and 18 to 20 feet feet high. That is u grand and rugged country about Mt. Lassen, presenting every variety of natural study to tbe geologist. If it is desired to look into the crater of an extinct volcano, a trip to the jumniit of Lassen will gratify the tvish. The high Sierras of northern California are little known except to prospectors and trappers of a past age, and their wonders are yet to be described. WOMEN JJOCTOUS.. WASHINOTOH, July 17.—Robert P. Porter, superintendent of the census says that he is well pleased With the manner in which the returns are being received id Washington. With the counting machines that are how being used he says that fully one million names a day can be counted, so that he expects to h tve the population of the country tabulated before many weeks. The machines used in counting the population census are the invention of Mr. Hallerith of the census office, and were designed by him to supplement his tabulating machine. They Work with the accuracy of a clock, and, considering the prodigious amount of labor they perform, are veritable giants in their way. They are capable of correctly counting from one to twenty persons each time a small ivory key is touched. In general appeafence they resemble an upright piano, and are encased in polished oak, presenting a neat appearance. Each one is provided with a -key-board resent bling that of a typewriter. The key-board is placed at the right of thu operator, who sits facing the machine. On the leu is a movable leaf on which are placed anumber of schedules. Most of the counting is done by tidy-looking girls in cool, "white dresses, who do their work while seated in front of the machine. On the third floor of the census building these machines are placed in long rows, whish gives the room the appearance of a piano wareroom. But ihe sharp clicking of the keys is . the only music thev emit. Thirty of these t eminently practical machines with the aid of thirty young women to manage them can accurately count one million names each day. The returns from the fifty thousand census districts into which the United States has been divided are coming in slowly. So far not quite 4,600 returns have reached Washington. But as the limit of time draws ,near the returns will come in with a rush. It is then that the real work of counting the population will begin. Each schedule is marked at _ the top with the number of families residing _in each house, and another space contains the total number of persons living in that house. The operator turns the schedule over and notes the figures which indicate the number of members in each family enumerated in that schedule. If there are 7 members in the family she touches the key marked No. 7. When a key is struck an electric connection is established with the hands on a dial placed in a framework immediately in front of the operator. That dial records No. 7 as struck on the key-board.' Each time key No. 7 is struck the hand on the dial points ID No. 7 and also records one. • When the count for one division is completed the recorded numbers on the dial are multiplied by their corresponding numbers indicated on the dial, the results added up and the total number of individuals for that division is ascertained. In making the count which is known as the "rough count," the returns for each district are counted twice. After being counted on one machine they are passed over to another. If the same result is obtained by a different operator, then it is assumed that the count is correct, but if there should be any discrepanies the necessary corrections are at once made. It is expected that by the use of these machines the labor of counting the population will be greatly lessened and the results be known vsry much sooner than by any other method heretofore adopted. .. : RECOVERED.

A prominent physician of Daltimoro, who is connected with tho Woman's Medical College, expresses his views of the matter in favor of the study of medicine by women. "During the earliest period of the world's history," ho said, "the duties of attending to the sick wore assigned to woman. History records instances of successful practice by woman long prior to tho time when scientific thought and precision had molded n riitioim! system of medicine. It is not uncommon to find in women the strongest characteristics, will, endurance, calmness under trial, strong judgment and practical intuition, all of which would give u substantial value to her services in tho sick room. "I'ho patience, genlloness and sympathetic nature of woman have conquered for her in tho sick chamber a posilion both honorable mid useful. Whether in tho capacity of an attendant or nurse, or sorv- inif under the instincts of affection, the ministrations of women aro regarded as tender and appropriate. Tho sick room offers an appropriate field for Iho action of woman's truest instincts, and when to those qualities live added a scientific training and u knowledge of tho art of healing diseases, it would seem, theoretically at least, that woman's character hud reached a high degree of usefulness in a medical career. As Into us 1850 the number of female graduates in medicine could bo counted on the fingers of one hand. To-day upward of 2,000 American women hold a medical degree. The movement has literally conquered a position in science and society, and ono might as well attempt to stay the progress of the tides as to endeavor to arrest tho reform which gives to woman a useful sphere of oefum, a benevolent pc- cupalion and wr opening to an honorable livelihood. , ., "In the beginning the effort upon tho part of women to secure a medical education was a trying one. Tho road which tho early female practvonor trod was rugged. There were sentiments, predjudieos and opinions presenting formidable barriers to progress, und woman knocked aura for admission into the ranks of the medical profession. Admission was at first denied: it was next partially allowed. JNow the doors are open, and a medical education is within the roach of any woman who seeks it. The fulurtf of this movomcnt in. favor o£ female medical education anil practice will turn upon woman a skill, knowledge and adaptability. She must master Ihe science; she must demonstrate lior adaptability to do scientific works and if she conquers the usual failings of her sex, such as wuut of porsoveranco, of a steadfast purpose, and her desire to uiftke a snort out to prosperity by 'taking up' fads, so to speak, instead, of purauiug a practical courso of work, then I see no reason why she should not succeed in this progressive, liberal -age."
