.When you mee. with one suspected
Of some secret deed of shame,
And for this by all rtjected
As a thin, of evil fame.
Guard thin( every look and steno'-:

For the slanderer's vile detraction
Yet may foil thy goodly name.
When you meet with one pnrsuinh
Ways thc lost have wandered in,
Working outtls own'unaoing .
With his recklessness and sin,
Think, if placed in his condition,
Would a kind word be In vain ?
Ora look of Bold suspicion
Win thee back to truth again ?
There are spots that bear no fiovrers—
Not because the soil is bad,
But the summer's genial showers
Never make their bosom glad:
Better have an act that's kindly,
Treason sometimes with disdain,
Than. by judging others blindly,
Doom the innocent to pain.

Mrs. E. C. Stanton, •generalissimo of
the female reformers, has issued a neir
general order directing an assault upon
the key of the masculine situation, the
very citadel of the man.tyrant's strength.
She says :
"The trne•idea is for the sexes to dress
as nearly alike as possible. We have
seen several ladles dressed precisely like
gentlemen, who appeared far more ele
gant and graceful than any real man we
ever saw. A young lady in Fifth avenue
dressed in male costume for years, travel
ling all over Europe and this country.
She says it would have been impossible
to have seen and known as much of life
in woman's attire, and to have felt the in
dependence and security she did, had her
sea been proclaimed before all Israel and
the' sun. There are many good reasons
for adopting male costume: First, it is the
most convenient dress that can be invent
ed;' second, in it woman could secure
equal wages with man for the same work;
third, a concealment of sex would protect
our young girls from those terrible ont,
rages from brutal men reported in all our

which she may securely invade our priva.
cy and play the spy in our councils of
war, our arms are nerved for a desper

woman in this way to discover, and so
thwart, all our devices for her degrada
tion. No, never! This concealment of

mistake, nor do we want them. to be fall
ing in love with our amiable self: We',
have heart-aches enough, mall condole:c o
without these superfluous heart-breaks:
we don't -believe their dis
guise will afford any considerable pro
tection against "those terrible outrages of
brutal men." On the contrary, we tr em
ble for own safety, and that is another
reason why we should resist the assault
upon our unmentionables.
But we console aurselves with the re
fleetion that if our trousers are carried,
all will not yet be lost. We shall be
measurably secure until repeated assaults
have battered us down to the stature of
women, wrenched out our beards, hoist
ed our bass voices into sopranso, pared
down our big feet and hands and noses,
contracted our chests; expanded our
hips, and parted our hair in the middle.
These things accomplished, If we can be
induced to climb on a Chair at the ap

and we shail be at the ercy of brutal
men, and compelled to suckle infants;
sew on buttons, and do other disagree
able things, for wome 's wages. And
then, how humiliating t think that when
woman's victory Is lius completed,
she will apppear far m re elegant and
graceful than any read man I The thing
is dreadful to contemplate. Our nerves
are only quiet when we reflect that in
proportion as elegance and grace are
more conspicuous in WO nen, in the same
proportion will the samc concealment of
sex be turned into revealment, We
should be thankful for even this little
safeguard against the brutal men, this
trifling protection against falling in love

The Music Business In the United States.
The Bookseller's Guide for August,-con
tains an interesting sketch of the rise and
progress of music publishing in this
country. We copy:
"The progress music has made during
the past twenty-flve . years is truly marvel
ous. In considering this *ogress it
should be borne in mind that hitherto
serious hinderances have always existed.
Toe utilitarian spirit, in its rank and nar
row growth in a new country, is not fa
vorable to the development and cultiva
tion of musical taste. Here in America,
the population, has always been as a
handful to the ,extent and riches of the
country, and every impulse has been in
the direction of success in practical busi
ness life., For several generations there
was little if any musical progress. At.
the opening of the century, however, we
note the beginning of that• taste for the
music of the piano which is the distinctive
characteristic of the Americans as a musi
"It would be tlilllcult to get at the value
of the music publishing business of the
United States. Mr. Pond estimates the
capital invested in the publication of
sheet music and musical works at five
millions of dollars. There is, compare
tively little music imported. Probably
two hundred thousand dollars will cover
the annual importation. Nearly every
piece of music published abroad is imme
diately reprinted here, and the character
of the music beard Id the different house
holds of the land is creditable tb the na
