[For the Wontax‘s STANDARD]
The Eternal Symphony.

Do we answer true when the Master calls
For a strain of music sweet.

Listening mute till the cadence, falls,
And giving rcspmtse complete?

Or do we each in a soltlsh way
Insist that our tones he heard

Even should in them discord play
And never a glad note stirred.

DO we watch for light in the Master's face
As He marks the golden time?

New fast, now slow, with a tender grace
As the music grows sublime.

While some are silent with unshcd tears.
0h. faint not. thou saintly heart!
hough the way is harm—in the later years
‘hou shalt have the better part.

The reason for these assertions
found in the fact that the church has%
for centuries dominated, and does now, 3
to a very great; extent dominate the.
state. The doctrines of the church are.
easily infused into the people and;
through the people into the state and‘
its laws. ()n the contrary, no idea in;
violation of the tenets, doctrines or be-
liefs of the church can be ingrat'ted :

on the part of the state to reform the}
church or discard its dogmas, always}

eighteen years a woman has held the office

Would men in e taxed
to the full extent of the law yet re-
fused this right of citizenship“?

Nay! They’d rebel to a man, and
they know they would, whatever they
say about being satisfied. Though the
laws have been improved in many re-
spects they are still unjust to women.

For instance, when the husband dies'

the law makes'it a necessity for the
widow to pay out large sums for the
settlement of the estate; while if she
dies he pays out not one cent. Then
too if the father dies, the minor chil-
dren must have a guardian; no such
necessity 1f the mother dies. The
father is at liberty to squander the
property, even to leaving the children
homeless. The law has no terrors for
him. A large share of lawyer’s fees
come from settling widows’ estates.

When widowers are made to dance
attendance on the courts of law
like manner, there will be more of
justice or at least a show of equality.

The New Womanhood.

()ne of the best results of the moral
work of the world that is being done
everywhere by '.'.'otncn, is that it has
created a new sentiment of chivalry
for the new womanhood.

Now, within memory almost of the
youngest, women have taught men to
honor them, not only for their purity,
but for their philanthropy, for their
high ambitions, for their work in res-
cuing the fallen, in tending the sick, in
succoring the poor. And today the

‘20 charter members. Up to the date

The society is free from debt and
has $60.00 in the treasury. During
the present month we contributed the
sum of $25.('t0 to the support of your
honorable body and you will always

according to our means.

()ur tirst two year’s work consisted
principally of the reading and discus-
sion of numerous papers, written by
members of the society on questions
of civil government. The plan of
work for the present year consists of
an original paper at each meeting,
upon some topic pertainlng to woman,
or in which she is materially interested.

A number of W. C. T. U. conven-

following resolution: “Thatinasmuch
as the wearing of trained dresess is com-
pulsory in the courts of kings. it is a-
fashion that may well be set at naught
by the women of a republic; and, since
a style of dress that keeps a woman

from her dignity and moral influence
as well as from her freedom and com—

Fashion Versus Cleanliness.

Is it not surprising that women who
pride themselves on their personal
cleanliness and firmly believe it ranks
next to godliness should, in the face
of the opinion of scientific men, of
their own common sense if they give
the subject a moment’s consideration,
be such blind devotees of fashion and
the dictates of their dressmakers as to
wear the now fashionable

Nothing can be brought forward in
favor of this direct breach of the laws
of health and cleanliness; for indoor
wear, so much cannot be said against
this fashion; but for outdoor wear,
where the lilth of roads, pavements
and street corners must be obvious to
every one, it should receive the strong-
est condemnation.


In extenuation,
some may say the dresses are raised by
-1r wearers so as to clear the ground.

The Saleslady and the Factory Girl.

The salesladies of New York are
greatly incensed because a bill intro-
duced in the legislature classes them
with factory girls! Such
as unjust as unhealthy. In physique
the factory girl is the peer of the
“salesladyz'” in intelligence she does
not fall short; in wage earning ability
she is her superior, and in the home
she will prove a better housekeeper
than her fastidious sister. The motion
of a lly‘s wings will not subject her to
a cold and she will have fewer flies on
the dinner table than the mistress of
the tape and the pencil.
