Mr Talbot next considers the cost of operating such a plant as compared with total earnings. He believes that the following figures may be taken as approximately correct; $•4,250 may be reasonably counted upou as revenue from fifty arc lamps lighted each night from dark until midnight under contract with the city at |8. r j per lamp per year, nnd $7,300 as revenue for Incandescent lighting; or a total revenue of $11,050. The THE STORY OF WOMAN. A Scholarly Wora»n'» lecture »»«• Our nab lo Tbluhlu*. Si>« inl Correspondence. NKW YimK.Keb.28, 1801. Sho was a very cierer woman. Everybody said tha', so U must ha uo. What everybody *aya always is the truth. I bad hoen listening to her lecture, Sho know more about astron omy and mociiapius, and people'* souls and politic, and books und pictures find the vpfcys of ever; thing, thim 1 had evor believed one person could know. Sho was very learned. And she had elected to talk about eorae- tbing that, no matter what was, always drifted into tolling how wornac were treated like dolli- and how sugar plums were i-iven to them. Shequoted from the Greek, which nobody understood, and it made me Uink of \» pacia. Sho was very glib with Latiu, and that brought to the front a prayer book in my raiud. Sho said harsh German words, but they made me think of tho German baus-frau. And then, r.sshe wandered olT Into English told of tbo position of woman, there arose before me B swaoi feminine G#nro surrounded by little children all waiting to welcome to bis home the man of the family. I know this wasn't what she Intended, but it WBS tho way it came to me And when sho finished up with a grand firework exhibition of words, she said, "wo do not wish sugar pluxs," I felt my head aching and was glad it was nil over. Everybody congratulated her and said how much good she wae do- Ing. I was too small for her to notice, and so sho didn't mles the p easani words that, perhaps, I ought to have siid, but I went home and wondered. HAH Ki;i.O(':i/KS WOMAN' There wus a bright Ijro, and I and a poor old friend ia the shape o' a dog, who was beginning to lose hia toeih, but who was loving and affoctlomito, and who, when he raited his soft eyes to mine, seemed to say, "My fr'end, what do you think about It all?" Knowing ho could cot read what I thought—that's where dogi* aro greater than mun—I patted him on tho head, and together we looked at tho fire, and read the story of woman. Thought I, "Ii may be great to bo so learned, thatono^is able to speak Greek and Litin, and to bo a walking P; uyclOv;udia; but isn't it more to bo able to convey in the language wo all speak the something thai means help and sympathy : J And is it wrong to want to huve the sugar plums of life:' Do you know what they arc'' I'll tell you. If you aro a woaun, they aro the words of approbation, of loving approbation, from the man whom you have elected to bo master of your heart and hearth. They aro tho gladsome thanks from little children. They aro tha kindly words from the friends to whom you woman bo loves and who loves him. and when, by some womanly spell you have^made him forget, for a little while, the trials and tribulations, then he says, either by look or by wO'd, how much he appreciates you; would you givo up that 8iii?ar plum for the sake of standing before a mob and having their vulgar unsympathetic •pplsuee? This greut loc uror objected to one baing only a woman, and vet in tho Bro light, my dear old Chum and I to sre a *omnn wo both know. Highest of all f» Leavening Power.—Latert U. S.

It isn't a pleasant work. You and I read about nursing, and it work out In the world. This old. world has gotten so bad and so wicked sounds like a romance, but usually It | that H forces, many time*, women to means taking care of thoto who arc bo the bread winners. I think ita great thine that they can do it, but 1 irritable, consoling those who refuse consolation, bithlng and wash ing tired, wi rn bodies, and never being certain that the sick one is pleased. In this woman's case it means going to whoever is poor and culls for her. Her came is never published in a religious paper, tho i* nover helc up as a model, don't think it a great thing- that they have to do it. You and 1, who are bound by some chance to eee the work-a day world, know that for our daughters wo would not wish the life of toll; that wo would rather set them wives and mothers, and that every time wo hear of another woman but day in and day out the brings comfort to tb« sick aad tho poor and "bo ha» had to become the bread- it seems to us as we look in the Qro »i"°er, wo give a sigh of sympathy, that she has done more In this world , My friend, the lecturer wouldn't agree than tho woman who can read the , * ith ™- ^c, would call this sickly in Greek or who j "cntln>i>n», but U isn't I buve never And thin : ract a woman yet who had Tim Pannsylvunin Station. ennsylvania Lines.

EDGEWORTH, Agent, expense of operating the plant would be, for labor, engineers, fireman and lamp trimmers, $2,160; fuel estimated at 750 tons of coal at $L' 75 a. ton, $2.062; for arc lamps and carbons, incandescent light renewals, $1,100; tax and Insurance, f600; collections, bookkeeping and. stationary, $500: repairs, contingencies and sundries, ffiGO: allowance for depression, 7' per cent, on $1-',000, $900 era total cost of operating plant ol $7,882. Deducting tho operating expense from tbe revenue, U U found that there la an apparent profit of |3.668. The co«t of real estate, of building of of steam power plant depend largely upon local conditions, and no oetluntoe of the Items are glvnn by Mr. Talbot." These facts and figures are of great Interest to the people of Logansport just now and they should he carefully considered. They show that there can bo no doubt that the city oan get its light without cost by the sale of light to private consumers and that 110,000 a year oan be ea<«d. Logans* port will need a plant more tban twice the lizc ot this as U IB proposed to use 150 aro lights instead of 50 as here given snd there will be at least thre times as many private consumers but th« figures give Information valuable to the public. TUB Journal believes in fair pl»y and therefore objects to tha Pharos misrepresenting tbe democratic members ol the council. It is a bad cams which is compelled to rely on misrop. resentatlon for tuooesi. havo boon able to give a helping hand It Is worth while to bo only a woman, and to get tho suga- plums of life. It is a th DSand times more worth havlr g U this position of being only a woman, than to bo that woman who stands before the public and. lessening her womanhood, thinks the applause of tho common crowd is desirable. Sho la.very apt to talk about the work of woman she did the «r>th'T night when I heard her. and she doesn't Htop to think about womnc. She talks very learnedly about the physical side of woman, and she hasn't brains enough to realize that a woman is swift of foot that she may got tbo more quickly to those who need her; that sho ts soft of band that she may touch the sick and the sore more gently thai) would a man; that she Is clear of eye because sho must see when her heart and boay are in conflict, and must help decide which is right; that sho is small of stature because, IP her own way, she doesn't attack a man's brain, but she touches his heart. Indeed, tb&ta woman physically Is built to be only a woman. That's all. And why shouldn't she have the sugar pluma? They are hers by right; and the sugar plums are so tweet. Tbe thanks, the thought, tbe loving word, tbe little gift, the pereuaslre touch, and tbe kiss of lore makeup the euear .plums of a woman's life and make her bolter, stronger and more capable of living as orily a woman should. MOTHER'S OBNTLK INFLUENCE. Does your boy-child come to you and wtep out his little troubles because you understand Greek? I think not. It la because you are bli mother and he knows you will soothe him and make him happier, and when you see the tears dried, and tbe brightness come back to his eyes, you have gotten the sugar plum that some womon think so little worth having. And when the man you love, and to whom you belong comes to you, tired sod worn out with the fight against the world, and finds with you rest aod consolation, does hn ask you whether j you know anything about mechanics? j You know he doesn't. Ho come* to you because you are a woman, the \ New Testament sooiTa at tbe Bible in Latin. one, this poor nUter, is only a woman who is living what rho believes to be right. THE SKLK SAC11IK1CIM; WOMAN. Her face fades away and another one comes, bright and smllinp courageous anil truthtu 1 . That's a woman many people know; a woman to whom many people go for oncour agrernent; a woman who is envied and admired; and .vet shots a woman who bears her burden as only a woman can. O'iceina whi'o her hu bam) disappears, and tho world at larpe hears that he ban eone to the M^tii terranean or to Florida ot Paria. And only ibis woman knows that tbw months are pas-sod in a mad house,and that tbij Is the fate wailing her onl} son. This 1 man loved her. roarrlti) her. and never told ner of hla awful heritage until i-hc was his wife. At first she thought she could not hour ft, but because she loved him. becniiBb sho wa8 only a woman, sh' did Aid to my mind, thoro (f no woman in the world who Is to good. And in tbu Urn I aco her an a martyr, but the G••»• light briRhtenu, an.^ around her head In the crown of glory that will gure'y ho hers. I don't think eho knows the first letter of the Greek alphabet; lam sure sbo i« not Interested in politic*. Sho is oi.ly a woman wf o its loving an brave, who hides her cross from tb multitude, and liveeout her .ifo a best she can. There comes another one, and whei he sees her face my little dog bark with dellffht. Sbo is the womin thx th« lecturer would sco'n She mir ried the man sho loved. Sbo bon him children; eho knows that bo f absolutely unfaithful to her, and ye she lives her llfo, makt s her children love her, unconsciously forces her hue band's respect, and hides tbe pain thai eho has to endure. It is like a can cor—one doesn't tell about it. It trio* to eat away her heart, and she quiets It with a sa'.ve of loving kind ness. Some day, I know. I am euro, her husband will comeback to bar. This learned lecturer would say that he wasn't worth having, but the woman whose face ts in tho fire she who la only a woman, will remember the ninety and nine who are cafe, and welcome back the one who was lost. Only women can do this. God built them that way. He made their hearts just a little tenderer when He made their brains » little weaker. He made them juet a little sweeter when He made them physically a Ht'lo lees strong. He gave them a curious in. to earn her own living, and who did It, -vho did not wish that she wasn't beinf* taken care of by a. man who could protect her, love he 1 and £ivo her all th« siigarplume of life. Oh, they will deny it; plenty ones, They of them, especially the young who are very enthusiastic. think the approbation of the world at sight when Ho gave them less reason, and He gave them His consideration and sympathy when He made them only woman. THK WOMAN WHO TOILS But the learned lady wouldn't agree with me; she thinks it is a great thing to know a deal, aqd go out into tbe world and work, as she would put It, on tbe same level with men. Baric bitterly! my friend, that's right. A woman can't work on the same level with men. Not while she la * woman. largo means much. My dear, loving. big-hearted (tirl, you who talk about your life-work and tbo books you will write, and tho pictures you will paint, tnko my word for it, there is no applause equal to the carese, or tbo word from some one who lores you, A Tory great woman, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, said this in wonderful words many \ears ago, and what che said then is true now, for truth is the j samo yesterday, today and fore»er. THK Sl'MI'ATHBTlC WOBAK. Only, awoman! On it isn't ouch a bad thing. Looked it even from tbe outrtldo. it isbiiirg more graceful than men, with daintier ways and finer belonging*; IV is a creature who, with tact, makes pleasant chatter and merry laughter: it is something that men couldn't do without if they wanted to. It's theone who is ciosoi-t to a man in his sorrow or in his joy: and whon a man Is overwhelmingly happy be- cauco ho has succeeded In something, ho wauls a woman's lips to congratulate him, a woman's arms to be around his neck and a womnn'u ejes to look happiness imo his. Ho don't care wbothor that woman known anything about mechanics in fact, he would much rather she didn't. What an awful thing it would be if all the women wore like the learned leetures! Tho knowledge of Greek doesn't teach one how to make n home: the knowledge of Latin doesn't teach onobow to make one't, boys and girls find home tho pleaeantest place and mother the best companion; and koewJedgo of tucchanicti doesn't teach cue tact, nor will chemistry result in tho making the dinner table a feast of material and mental delight. Greek, Ltiln, mechanics, all may good to know, but there are some that are se much greater. To know low to appreciate a kindness, V 1 blot out a slight and to be gracious and oving aro greater a million times. To be only a woman with all that that means is the greatest of all. Tbe novel slipped from my bands' ong ago. Tho fire i» a btd of bright aahus, but my four-legged friend has never ceased to road my heart, and when I get up to lea re him, be wags lis tall with g eat sympathy and his iyes seem to eay: "It is worth while, jven if you aro only awoman. make be best of it, and tbo best of it is a great deal. WHY no i LOV« TOU? Not because you know anything, I oubtifjoudo, Bui because you are ust a woman and my friend, and we an look into each other's hearts and o«d what is there. And if I hid alien and hurt myself. I should know lat when I wished to be soothed and taker care of I wouldn't want t body who understood Greek or wk» preached in l/iun. I should waat only a woman who would be tender and kind to mo. who would bind up my hurt, and who would >mdorct»nd wbut I meant. And ia tbe only way 1 knew how, I should call for my friend and companion BAH.
