A New York dispatch of the 5th
Rev. Sheldon Jackson lectured
3'esterday on Alaska before the ladies
of the Presbyterian-board of missions,
urging the establishment of a woman's
home at Fort Wrangel and asking
$3,500; 1,000 was subscribed.
This looks a little singular, to say

you the right to judge us poor
women as cruelly as you do?" "No
one gave it to me, madame," said
Dumas; "1 bought it."

tomer replied, "Apparently."
And now the Chinese claim that
the telephone is nearly two thousand
years old, having been in use about
that time in their country. There is
something that is older than the telephone-

Chinese walls. It is as old as the first
Chinese historian. . And about as reliable.
