Wiseacre are telling the country
that the wcmen's movement against the
liquor business will be of an ephemeral
oharaetrr ; that in a few months at most
it will hare psed awij. Such a de
clsralton orjst be taken at its faie
value. Ii is a guess.
Io a practical sense, if it happens to
come true as a preJioion, it will do as
well as if thos who made it bad vol
limes of precedenu to sustain them in
their declarations. As a ue, it maj
or may not "bit."
There are no precedents from whic'j to
start sich dec'aratioos. Tbe history of
the past f refnts do movements of a
mxilar olisractcr. The books contain
do record to console them in their
guess-wrk. If the past presented
koine precedent, or land mark, from
which to reckon a3 to the perseverance
the ladies will bnr.g to bear in the
movement', ao excuse for the conceited
declaration that it cannot last, might
be conjured up. The movements of
our own sei have been so varied that
when a new one is ventured on, we look
to the past to 8f e how our fathers" snted,
and on their recorded actions base our
opinion a to how we may succeed.
Womankind, in the past, Las bad no
voice, excepting tlriUph the private
chambers of her husband, io shaping the
public mind. Siie bas never had the
opportunity to organize. Tbe strong
counsel she has given, as represented
in individual cases, in which she ba
risen above the so-called natural weak
ness of ber sex, are no more exceptions
than are the works of the power ul and
brilliant men of our sex exceptions.
Womanhood bas always held an in
ferior position. We go to the Easterr.
countries (o End the status in which she
bas beea held. Her conditiou there is
as near akin to slavery a it well cin
be. Even there individual cases rise
above tbe bsrem, and the a'ject ser
vant by her superior tact and judgment
makes herself felt. Tbe reading pub
lic know the coudition of the "squaw"
of the North American Indian. In
these brief and basty illustrations may
be read the pist condition of woman
kind. She is just emerging from her
state cf bondage to a ondition of true
and equal companionship, in which her
comfort ac J well-being are to be con
sidered as well is those of tbe opposite
sex. The spasmodic caresses and
gaudy decorations that men as often
bestowed cn their d'gs or borscs as
they did on their women, is to give way
to a kind and just consideration for
their comfort, which will result in the
formation cf pleasanter society and
happier homes.
Womankind bas held such a eondi
tioo in society that she could never as
srrt and express herself in an organixed
way against the frivolities and vices of
husbands and sons. She bas been com
pelled to witness the meanest debauch
cry, and been dragged through the
deepest recesses of private distress and
destitution without once daring to lift
ber voice io protest.. Our present civ
ilization ia giving her aa opportunity to
assert herself and express Ler disap
probation of the vices of our sex. In
the new movement she advocates njth
iiig but that which is for aur good,
fan not car sex rise above its arbitrary
rale, and treat her as a companion
whose comfort anl well-being is to be
considered as well as our own !
No one knows bow long the women's
temperance movement will last. Il
man doea not exercise tbe rule of the
despot ; if he be civilized enough to
allow woman a voice on the questions
that affect tbe family, its happiness and
prosperity, it will be of the most endu
ring character.
Reunion of Members or the
l.egftiiature Tret lout to lVtO
A Iteminisrcncc ui John
C uoiuiitigtt of Juniata toun
tj. There was a Legislative Re-union at
Harntibnrg cn the afternoon of the 26th
nit., ia tbe ba)i of .be lower housj,
cf surviving members of the State
Legislatures previous to the year 1S50.
The chamber was crowded. It was not
large enough to bold all wbo sought
admittance. It was a most pleasant
meeting for the ex-members. Young
men live in their prospects and antici
pations of the future. Old men live in
tbe past; retrosj ective views are their
eticf delight. Consequently the old
gentlemen were in their chief delight
when relating their experience, of the
past. Aa old gentleman Mr. Oli
pbant now a resident of Washington,
D. C, but long ago a member of
tbe Pennsylvania Legislature, made a
speech, iu which be brought prominent
ly to view the straggle that tne inhabi
tants of M:f3m conty that lived south
cf Shade Mountain and between it and
the Tuscarora Momtain, eomprtheni
tcg the limits ot onr county, passod
through in bat body, for tbe formation
cf this Juniatj county. He spoke
cf the pcor facilities for travel then,
and of tbe great improvements io that
direction sinee that day. The cbief
plea, he ai.i, that the people of this
eoooty put in for a separatum from Mif
flin eoouty was the difficulty of going
to Lewistown to court, or to attend to
other legal business, at tbat time theie
being erriy one way through the L. ng
Narrows, anj tbat dreadfully roogb
and dangcrow is Batuul declivities
and obstacles, and oftqn infested by
robbers. The champion of separation
in the Legislature was John Cummings,
f Tuscarora Valley, lie wotked in aud
oat of season for a division. Mr. Cura
mings had importuned bim to cast his"
vote for Juniata, when tbe bill for the di
vision of the county should come before
the House. He, however,did not commit
liitrself. Ilia indefinite reply caused
Cummings to class bim among those
who were opposed to tbe bill. Wbeo
tbe bill was put on its" passage be voted
for it. The tetrad of bis uva" brongnt
Cummings to his feet, who approached
him hastily and threw bis arms around
bim aud embraced bim, saying God
bless ye; I'll oiver forgit ye for that
vote." Tbe bill passed, and wad signed
by tbe Governor and Cummings was
happy. And thus tbe old men talked
aud re'ated remiuiss'eoees, but that was
tbe only one relative to Juniata rela
ted while w, by chance, happened to
stand at the chamber door of the ro
tunda. Ut thought it tbe happiest
meeting of men we looked on for many
days. It was not business, it was so
cial. The Temperance Movement
by the Ladies In I'lilladel
fhla. In the afternoon of last Friday a
praver-meeting in Philadelphia was
held in tbe Baptist Chapel, Seventh
street and Susquehanna avenue, in the
extreme northern section of the city.
At the opening about two hundred- la
dies were present, Mrs. Dr. French, a
a well-known female presiding. Prior
to the opening exercises, tbe reporters
were requested to withdraw, and the
proceedings were conducted secretly.
The number of ladies largely increased,
and by four o'clock nearly one thou
sand bad congregate 1 in and around
the chapel. The ladies, after a Ion?
discussion, decided to commence a cru
sade against liquor dealers at occe, and
for that purpose they delegated twenty
of their number, who proceeded to
three saloons io the vicinity, around
which they sang and prayed. The pro
prietors bad heard that something of
that kind was in progress in that vicin
ity, and when tbey saw the ladies ap
proaching they closed their doors.
Tbe Erst sa!-Mn visited was that of
Charles Uageulochens, Susquebaoua
avenue and Fiftli street. 1 bey met the
proprietor, and tbe following convcrsa
tion ensued :
"Can we hold prayer ?"
"Certainly not ; I have no room in
which to hold prayer.''
'Can we pray in a bed room !"
"No, it would disturb the boarders."
"Do you sell drink V
"1 do not to druukarJs. I pay my
license and a-Ji protected by law."
They th?n essg and prayed around
the establishment and left. Tbe sa
loons of A. Kramer and Jobn Ober
holtzer in the vicinity were then visited.
Here two doers were closed. At the
latter place they sang and prayed at a
side door. A number of roughs gath
ered, who ridiculed the proceedings ao
much that one of tbe ladies wept. The
proprietor called the police, but they
refused to interfere.
After leaving the saloons, the dele
gation returned to the chapel, where
tbe meeting was anxiously awaiting
them. Whea Mrs. Dr. French, who
led tbe delegation, ectered the door she
stretched out both hand and cried :
"The victory is ours we have won !"
After sibging and prajing, the meeting
adjourned. A number of prominent
saloons on Chestnut street to-day re
ceived written notices which stated that
tbe ladies in a body would soon call on

Thb Scuool Book Qcesiiojj. A
movement has beeu made in Ohio, as
well as in the Illinois Legislature, to
wards breaking up the existing school
book monopolies, by means of a bill to
place the compilation or preparation of
text books f t tbe Schools in the h.iuds
of a State Board of Commissioners.
Tje result of such a measure might be
beneficial, provide.! the commissioners
properly understood and did their duty,
and were placed under judicious re
strictions in the exercise ot their duty ;
but the chances are that ihe monopoly
would simply be transferred from one
set of speculating publishers to another,
without any mattiial advantage to the
State. It is encouraging, however, to
find the agitation in progress. It is a
suhjct upon which the general public
bas remained too lwng inactive and
asleep, while vast fortunes bavo been
aiade at their unsuspecting expeuse. A
reform is urgently needed, and experi
ments to that end deserve encourage
ment. E.
A Washington correspondent of tbe
Cincinnati Gazette says that a lady (?)
and ber husband in tbat ci'y have
largely snpported themselves by attend
ing the receptions of Government offi
cials, and living on the viands there
provided. Breakfasting no mush and
milk at their lodgings iu a fashionable
part of the city, they saved enough by
these foraging expeditions to secure a
handsome visitiug outfit, cards and
gloves. But their trick were at last
found out, and the peripatetic pair bad
to flee ignoiiiiuionsly. This story re
minds ns of one told by an eccentric
character io "Russell's Memoirs ol Tom
Moore," who, on being pressed as to
bow be got bis living, made this frank
avowal : 0n Sunday I always dine
with an old friend of niiue, where I eat
enough to last me nntil Wednesday.
Tbeu I bay tome tiipe, which 1 bate
like tbe ery , and that makes me
fo tick tbat I can't tat anythiog until

L A despatch from Fort Sul'y to Sioux City
sa s that the Unrpspaa made a raid on the

a singular discovery msda bv some work
men. They were repairing a building known
as the iVoolsey House, situated in the lower
part of the town, and in taking down ihe

in tbe due. It was pronounced by the phy

of a woman, apparently aoout eighteen
years of age, and it had probably been in

Lone Wolf, tne war chief of the Eiowas,
was comparatively civilized until he lately
heard of the death of his son. He had an
ambr.laneo and a pair of mules, and said he
was trying to live like a white man. The
son was killed while raiding in Texas. Lone
Wolf drew his levolver, shot his mules,
broke up his wagon, piled it and his lodge
on tbe top of tbe mules, and burned the
pile. He shaved one side of bis head,
stuck the black feather behind his ear, and
started his followers on tbe war-pa'b.
In I8T0 Elizabeth Smith, of Chicago,
made up her mind to get rid of her drunk
en husband John. She went to a secret
working divorce lawyer and paid him $10
to secure her f-eedom. John heard of the
matter, and so convincingly promised re
form that Mrs. Smith paid tbe lawyer $10
more and told bim to drop the proceedings.
The husband thereafter behaved himself,
and the pair lived happily. Lately he sold
a house, and in tbe transfer of the title a
record was found of a divorce granted in
lfc'70 between Elizabeth and John Smith.
The lawyer had already got the decree
when the lady changed ber mind, but did
not tell her so. So they had been living
over three years together unmarried. They
went at once to a minister and ware ajar

This being tbe season n't which colds
are most prevalent and most difficult to
get rid of, it may be interesting to re
call the substance of some remarks con
tributed to nature some four yeara ago
by a correspondent. He stated tbat.
by simply abstaining from' drink and
liquid (ood of any kind for as long a
period as possible, tbe internal conges
tion, which is in fact the condition gen
erally koowu as "a celd," becomes re
duced. Tbe eause ot congestion is tbe
overcharged membranes, and this is re
moved when tbe general bulk of tbe
blood has been diminished by withhold
ing tbe usual supply of fluid. By keep
ing tbe supply of drink for a day or
two down to a point at which some de
gree of thirst is yet experienced a com
plete enre tray be effected.
