NBAJIW complete returns from the election in Brazil go to show that the new government is well established in the iympathiea of the people. The vote in dicates the existence of the opposition party, but its members are comparatively insignificant, amounting to only one out of three of the recorded voters. It would be strange) indeed, if tlie monarchy had aot as many friends as that still left among tho nobility. The feeling for the did regime does not. however, appear to be powerful enough to seriously embarrass the republic, and the sentiment is probably destined fo grow weaker rather than stronger as times go on. THE reports of the torture or assasina- tion of Armenians by the Turkish authorities are increasing in number, and may soon demand the attention of the Christian nations of Europe. It was the Bulgarian atrocities that aroused Europe against Turkey and led to a bloody war. Perhap s the Armenian atrocities are destined to play an equally important part in the drama of the eastern question. It cannot be that the Christian world will long main unmoved, when the horrible dilion of their brethren under Turkish rule shall fully be disclosed. recon- TIIK advance of its rate of discount to 5J^ per cent by tho bank of Germany, indicates a delicate financial situation abroad, and if the bank of England should feel compelled to follow suit at the meeting of its directors the strain upon credit will be intensified. Tho general feeling abroad is rery uneasy. And it has communicated itself to Wall street. In the present state of the market, a foreign crisis of even •mull proportions will be acutely felt here. THE supremo court of the Unitid States will soon bo called upon to determine whether a suit will lie in a federal court against a state. The plaintiff in this case will bo the United States, by the secretary of the interior, and the del'endent the state of Minnesota. Tho cause is the title to certain lands in tho neighborhood of Duluth, included, so tho secretary claims, by mistake in a grant of swamp lands to the state. Tho blunder is complicated by the fact that tho lauds in dispute had been pre-empted and settled before the survey or included them in the swamp granl made to Minnesota. The point for the iuprcmo court to determine is whether tho United States is debarred with all other possible plaintiffs against a state by tho llth amendment to the constitution. This amendment reads: The judicial power of tho United States shall not extend to any suit in law-or equity commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by citizens of another state, or by citizens or subjects of any foreign state. It is clear enough that the courts would have no jurisdiction if any of these prc- cmptors should sue the state of Minnesota fora correction of their title to the land. It is also clear that tho intention of the amendment is to forbid jurisdiction of United States courts in certain specified •ascs. Tho question is whether the failure to prohibit a suit by the United States, against a state was intenuonul, and so by implication permit such a suit, or whethei all suits against states were intended to be prohibited. It is not likely thai euch a suit was anticipated by those who drafted the amendment, at any rate no Huch case has ever arisen, and the opinion of the supreme court upon tho in. torprotation of this amendment has never been given.

What shall the pattern be? Who shall choose the colors? Some woman surely, for since the goddess of wisdom patronized the art of weaving her sex has excelled in that cunning device, whether wich divers colors in wool or with the subtle strands of human character. "A hundred men make an encampment, but one woman a home.' 1 If the resppn- s;bility be great so also is the opportunity. Wise is she who is able to rise above the trials which attend that honorable office to accept her privilege with tbankfulness. Happy is she over whose house broods the home atmosphere. The long winter evenings are very near. What books, what work, what recreation shall be chosen? Some woman must be ready to help over hard places or supply the need, whatever it be. And men would have it so. It is not in defiance of their rights or to usurp their privilege—rather to supplement both. Home is the fair heaven to which they scud when plans miscarry or friends prove faithless; for whatever a man's own character may be, he always wishes his wife to be the synonym for all that is wise and good. Believing her worthy, it is no wonder he leaves to her the guardianship of his home and allows himself to become a secondary influence there. Where harmony in taste md unity of purpose exist between the msband and wife there will be no necessity for seper ate or individual laws. John Eluskin says that on no occasion did he ;ver witness a conflict of opinion between lis parents. That they had cherished dif- 'erent views there is no doubt, but they wisely refrained from discussing them in he presence of their son. All "this, how- svor, is not meant to show that the "man of the house" is in duty bound to degenerate into a much-petted, much-catered-to HE HAD TO BE AMUSED.

Far be it from iny purpose to advocate severity with the young; but I believe that as the best and bravest officers in the army are those who can best obey, so are the best citizens those who learned in their youth the art of prompt and implicit obedience. Rebellion against parental authority is sure to become a full-grown habit with teeth and claws if it be not strangled at its birth. Discipline is troublesome, and grevious, too; but are shame and regret easier? The child is not given to the parent for a toy, nor in any senre for his own; but to kis fellow man, to his coun. try, and to God as he is responsible for his trust.

The mother deserves her reward and she gets it; but the poor girl will carry the blemish to a home of her own. What heaven is to the Christian, home is to the child—a refuge from whatsoever hurts or destroys, a world of love. _ The memory of such a home is a strong influ- mce for good.

English ideas of gentility and courage when applied to Irishmen ura peculiar. It is gentlemanly and courageous in the opinion of English tories for Mr. Balfour to wrest theso men and send them to jail to prevent them from making a contemplated visit to the United States, but in the language of one of the American apologists for Balfour, "cleverness including the police is hardly what the English public looks for in an Irish patriot." All the business of berating Mr. Dillon and O'Brien for not choosing to be martyrs on the particular occasion is absurd. Both of them have undergone punishment for similar alleged oifentes with the courage that no man will question. Besides, as arrest and condemnation are synoymous in Irish political prosecutions, punishment in this case is sure 'o follow later on. It is only delayed. 'Die matter of courage in no way enters into the a<stion of these two men and the only question that really concerned them was their ability *o get away.

Mount Tacoma, Washington, rises to a height of 14,444 feet, and to the present time only twenty-nine persons have climbec to its summit, of whom Miss Fay Ful'e of Tacoma, is the only woman. Tho part with whom Miss Fuller made the nscen on the 10th of August consisted of th Rev. E. C. Smith, R. R. Parish, W. 0 Amsden, of Seattle, and Leonard Long mire, the guide, of Yelm. Experience mountaineers say that Mount Tacoma i the most difficult American peak to climb The ascent of the first 7,000 feet was mad on horseback through dense forest, acros dangerous streams, and beautiful uatura parks, known as the Lower Gardens o Eden, and consumed nearly four days Then began the ascent on foot, which wa perilous in the extreme. At 12,000 fee the wind blew a hurricane over the sno\ and blue-green glacier. Several crevasse had to be crossed, some of which wer large enough to drop a house into. Th summit was _reached at 4:30 p. in. o Aug. 10. It is aboqt two miles across Standing on top the climbers could see be low thtm two large craters looking lik immense bowls with a central common rim.

They sat on tin rocks °.nd were soon damp with tin moisture and parboiled by thr. heat, and i was necessary to move. At 6 o'clock Miss Fuller's account of the expedition says "On the east ridge of the big crater we entered an ice cave between the snow anc rim of the crater, ami there, with steam beside us, we spread our blankets, which seemed light enough now, took off our shoes, bathed our feet in whisky, and began tlie night. After having reached the summit 1 began to feel sick from cold, exhaustion and the sulphur odor, and foi some time suffered from a chill and nausea. After vomiting I felt all righl and ready to enjoy the night. Some oj the gentlemen were tired and very cold. Eating had no attraction for me, but some ate a little. Mr. Smith melted some ice in n cup over the steam, heated the water, dissolved some extract of beef, and served some good hot beef soup for supper, Two blankets over us seemed little protection for tho night. Through the small opening in tho cave above we could watch the stars and meteors and all night long- hear the awful avalanches roaring down the mountain sides, 1 was the only one fortunate enough to bo able to sleep. W hen we awoke our shoos were frozen stiff and had to bo melted in tho steam boforo we could put them on. The blankets whore p^team had been were icy." The descent was even more perilous than the ascent had been, but it was finally accomplished without serious mishap. Miss Fuller's exposure had caused her lips, nose and face to swell badly and the skin peeled off, but she feels well repaid for what she endured by tho novel experience. Missionary Muss Meeting.

Among the other visitors at this hotel was an invalid with a timid little* daughter. One morning the child whispered a "secret" into her mother's ear. She had invited all the children to a 4 o'clock tea for that afternoon. It was a formidable piece of news; for "the children" mean an army of hungry mouths to fill, and re sources were few. However, without • word of reproach or agestnreof impatienc the mother sweetly accepted and discharg ed her child's obligation, whose unalloyet happiness must have been ample couipensa tion for all the trouble, if, indeed, she fel it such.
