THERE ARE young men who think it derogates from their manhood to show courtesy to woman. Xever was there more serious mistake. Before us is a letter from a young man in which he sava: "I had a wrangle with a friend about the amount of respect due the fair sex, and he took the ground that In her presence man should al waya act as the .inferior being, according her the.'preferred places and serving her as if ho were her slave. I took the opposite view and said that-raan should be self-respecting,—ready to giv« woman all she asks for of civil and political rights, but treating her ns an equal,,never as a superior." Our correspondent fails to discern the difference between civility and servility, between tlw assertion of manhood dignity and thejacting the part of a gentleman. Woman is by .common consent debarred from entering the lists with man; she la his Inferior physically and nature asserts in unmistakeable terms that woman cannot work out her true mission in life and at the same time compete with man in the Industrial and professional pursuits of life. The female of all animals from the lowest up to the noblest creature in existence, woman is, consequently, a passive being, and it is male who Is active. Pou- •esslng the physical strength and en- duranct) to which the woman is a stranger, common fairness ought to suggest that man should feel himself her protector. Mora than tliisr it is woman who sustains churches and all charitable institutions. In short, a,* man is the physical superior, woman is the moral superior. Long isolation from the world and cultivation of ntrtr al qualities make her infinitely his superior in those things. Pause but a moment and consider what agonies mothers endure in maternity and see how they are ready to give their lives for their olispring. Sre bow they endure all privation uncomplainingly for .their children and will not be bappy untill they also are happy. Observe the wife's devotion for her husband, how she will bear all, brave all, endure all If only thereby she may make the husband happy. Mnce shu is weaker physically, thereby appealing to man's magnanimity, and since she is his superior morally thereby chal- " lenglng his admiration, and devotion, it, of course, fallows that, agreeably to common verdict, man should be always respectful, courteous, polite be-"" fore woman, lie should be ready to bare his head when he speaks to her; avoid boisterous and unseemly behavior in her presence; address her with title of respect; regard her as too sacred that he should presume even to but lay his hand upon her arm or shoulder. In s'lort, he should be mindful that he has a mother, of the sex of woman, and that that recollection with what that mother is and what she has borne and endured for him, should compel honor and reverence for the sex at all times and everywhere. One can determine at once the progress made by a people In intelligence by 'llndlug out how they treat their women. Common decency demands reverence ' for the sex, and familiarity can only be the suggestion of animalism and vulgarity. Honor woman; reverence her; respect her; because all of good that'belongs and pertains to man, comes of her teaching and example. IK WE live until the next legislature meets, and nobody else will do so, we shall draft a bill and prevail upon some member to introdu«e It In the State legislature looking to the appointment of Inspectors of foods, liquors, wines, beers and medicines in all villages and cities of the State and at salaries that will Insure the spcuring of good and competent men, who not only will possess the talent to discover fraud, but who also will be above the temptation to bribery, It is a burning and a crying shame that iu this year of grace and enlightenment one cannot buy. a single article of food with .any confidence that he is getting what he pays for. Actually men are resorting to cotton seed oil for culinary purposes because of the adulteration. of lard. What man is there that can find a gallon of pure molasses anywhere (free of glucose)'! 1 Candy manufacturers openly and boldly sell candy containing terra alba (white clay) In percentage as high as 00; that Is to say, six parts of clay and four parts of sugar (and that largely glucose). Ground coffee la largely charged with chicory; sugar with glucose and sand; tea with copperas, and BO on to the end of;the chapter. One can scarcely find an ounce of pure cinnamon in America, it being cassia, an inferior member of the same family that is sold in its stead. It Is openly charged that in all these United States there is not one single ounce of pure quinine. But it is not in breadstniTs and medicines alone dim 1 , to-* payer several timps cfver(wha' ol additional tax ho might have to pay; in thfi leis amount h« would have to buy for his family through not having to pay for glucose, sand, beans in coffee, etc., ete., etc It is now before our people, this tragedy at I'ine Creek, an evidence of the danger oT adulteration. The wickedness of adulteration has no limits. The only way to check arid break it up finally ii to do here what they do in Germany and that is what we now are arguing for, viz., the appointment of thoroughly competent inspectors in every village and city of the -State. Other States are looking to the same kind of a law, and in five years scarcely a State of the Union will be free ol such a law. We must have It, If we would have our people live one half their days. THIS ia Monday, preachers' rest day, and day in which daily newspapers publish the utterances of the clergy the day before. Hence the appositeness of reference to a subject that causes gravest concern to the thoughtful clergy of the land, viz., why is it that America is fast getting where Italy, Spain, France, Portugal-and other countries are, and that Is, that the clergy have to depend mainly upon the women for support and attendance upon religious services 't In eacb of the countries named, there is a proverb oft-repeated to the effect that "the church is made for women; men do not go to church." It is not for the newspaper to indicate the correction of evils, but to point them out. The time was in America when no man remained away from the house of worship if he had physical strength to get there. More, the man who remained away was not only degraded in t e eys of his fellow men, but he .was punished at law. Any frequenter of churches will admit readily that a very large percentage of men do not attend church, or at least attend regularly. No one can deny the beauty and strength and comfort and hope of the Christian religion. It is the only hope and promise of future life and annihi- lition is to man more horrible than all the sum of other evils in the world. Xone can deny that the service of the church is beautiful, in that the system of religion is sound, beautiful, true. Where, then, the cause of full-off in church attendance? Some incline to the view that it is the resHlt of European influence; that the large number of foreigners in America who ignore the church and Its influence, force example upon the native element. Hut are—-our---natives-• so easily led by foreign influence V Others contend that the clergy do not 1111 the measure of the need of their positions and that they do not make their services sufficiently attractive. Yet others ascribe it to the temptation of a loll at home among most attractive Sunday morning papers. Still others insist thut IngersolliBm, atheism, infidelity, etc., hnve weaned men off from allegiance to the religion of thier fathers. We advert to the alleged causes, only; we certainly have HO knowledge of the cause. This we know: the Bible teaches that the church is to be maintained after the agency of man, aided by the Spirit of truth. Since t ere is promise of the cooperation orlDeity and since there Is prodigious decline in behooves the clergy of the land to enquire into the cause; for'the fault must be and is with those on earth to whom Is committed the care and keeping of the church. antler's rarcrr waa sh»rt, but his father's fame was back of him. Grant WRP elected President in i>w,— seven years after entering ttie army a* colonel: but he lived eighteen years longer, lirief was Lincoln's national public life, briefer than any of equal fame who prec<-cled or followed after him; but we would find it diffcult to name bis superior the great men of the world. Tlic A BILL is before the Iowa Senate to equalize the pay of school teachers, to pay female teachers as much as male teachers for the same class of work. This is a good law and one that ought to prevail everywhere. In this county, we believe that ,-tfie teacher receiving the highest pay in any country school is a lady; but the fact is that in this and every other county of the State it is general impression that a woman should work for less than a man MK. BLAINE'S letter has created a sensation. Is it a bit of diplomacy y or is he in dead earnest? Chairman Jones declined to tell which. We shall see what we shall see. A FRIEND laughed .heartily at "our cheek," as he termed it, in writing to Senators Cullom and Farwell and to Representative Henderson to try to get Sterling an hundred thousand dollar appropriation for a government building here. Where's the cheek? Nobody ever heard of a city getting anything without asking for it, and Galena and Cairo are not nearly so important cities as Sterling; neither any one of t e four Southern cities that have recently got a similar "appropriation. Sterling has never had a Congressman or Governor or State officer of any kind, or President,. or foreign mission, or, indeed any recognition whatsoever from State or national government. When she paid nine- tenths of the revenue of the district, the collector of internal revenue always hailed from some other part of the district. We have made up our mind to do like John Klnaker; when anything turns up, ask for it for Sterling. If it ia another soldiers' home, or any other public building for the State; or a convention to draw a crowd here; or, indeed anything that comes of the asking.' It costs but little time and less money to ask; and certainly Sterling will never get anything except it does ask. A POSTAL telegraph is just as needful as a letter post. Congress should not suffer the Western Union to talk it out of the project. MEN ARE GROWING TALLER, Inflnrnfr* Which T>n<> to Rloii|;ntlon of the Hnnrnllne Spinal Column. Mr. Eilward Atkinson, of Boston, finds time while conducting an extensive business to collect information on a great variety of subjects. He has lately ascertained, by means of circulars addressed to leading tailors, the makers of ready made clothing, and the manufacturers of underclothes, thnt, the men of this country are growing taller, decade by decade. Ho thinks that we shall eventually become a nation of giants. As yet he has elaborated no theory to account for tills steady increase In height. Some physiologists, however, have suggested that It is due to the large consumption of meat. In this country. They state that people who, like the Chinese and Hindoos, subsist almost entirely on grain and fruit are Invariably short In stature, while flesh consumers, like the North American Indians, ore generally quite 'tall. It Is likely that diet may liave something to do In Influencing the height that men attain. Hut It Is obvious that there are other causes that exert a much greater Influence. There are a great many Inducements held out in this country for men to become tall. Nearly every boy desires to gain admission to the military ' or naval academy, and each learns as soon as he am read that, It Is necessary to reach a certain standard of height In order to be eligible. . Men must also stand a certain number of feet and Inches In their stoclt- Ings before they can attain positions on the police force in most cities. As premiums are offered for becoming tall, It Is by no means wonderful that men and boys should seek to add to ttieir stature by taking thought or taking anything that will produce the desired result. The Introduction of the three story and mansard roof bonnet, with a roost for birds or a vase of flowers on the ridgepole, has been a most Important agent In elongating the spinal column of men. The. man who Invests $3 in tickets for the purpose of taking his best girl to the theatre finds that he can see nothing on the stage unless he happens to bo very tall. In the case of spectacular productions this Is specially aggravating. As a consequence meu who attend theatres and operas make use of every means that will enable them to become tall. In some fashionable churches the male worshiper of medium height has no opportunity to see the minister or the pretty soprano singer. The Tower of Babel bonnets, surmounted by "fowls, of the air" and "lilies of the field," entirely obstruct his view. . The street car also exerts great influence In causing meu to become tall. They generally give the seats to the women, and are obliged to stnnd during the entire trip. As soon as a boy Is .13 years .old, hla endeavors to reach the strap attached to the top rail commence. He perseveres in his attempt until he succeeds in accomplishing the difficult feat. He learns to stretch Ills body out in the same way that an earth worm does in order to reach a certain place. After he has availed himself of all his powers of self elongation, agencies that are not voluntary are brought to work on, bis body. Bide pressure la made to bear on It as it is on a bar of Iron that la to be drawn out into wire. It also receives numeroua blows every time the car wheels pass over an obstruction, and these produce the same effect on his body that the blows of a hammer do on a, piece of soft Iron.—Chicago Times, fnr I>rlmr»r<!

A bill was Introduced in the bouse Saturday providing that in suits for damages against railways contributory negligence shall not bar a recovery of damages unless It IB shown that It was greater than the negligence of the railway. Bill were ordered engrossed requiring lard compounds to be sold aa such, and making abusive lanfj guage a misdemeanor when it provokes an assault.

Alex- GluclorB In nrltiih Columbia. Pushing on, small glaciers are visible on all sides, winding their way down through the mountain ravines. Ahead of us one of the grandest glaciers of the Selkii-ka is visible, pronounced by Borne to bo several hundred feet In depth—a, pea of ice slowly working Its course to the valley below, doing battle with and conquering huge rocks on its way. Here we see enormous slabs of clear, green Ice, as big as the side of a house, tumbled together, eorne standing.erect, like Immense gravestones. Now .we are startled by a sharp" cracking sound, which resounds through the mountains, as some large bulk of Ice topples over, or settlesideeper in Its place. One may read a lifetiirfe and form no conception of such scenes ns here present themselves; cold type cannot reproduce them or do them justice. Turning from ~the impressive grandeur of this enormous field of Ice, the eye wanders off to the "snow masses" of the wild mountains,' noting the ever changing effect of light and shadow 011 these snowy peaks and the great white amphitheater. We stand and gaze on the silent, lonely, but entrancing scene. Thin is the home of the big horn sheep, the mountain goat and the bear, while deer and wapiti are found in plenty further down. Far below on the mountain trail a band of Indians are jogging along on snow shoes over, the deep snow, swaying, in their usual shuffling gait, with the uniformity of a single man. In another direction we have a faint glimpse of the small but turbulent glacier fed Illlcilliwaot river, .the glacial mud tinging it a peculiar pen green color; high above and beyond are glacial mountains heaped the sky.—H.
