Tho women of Now York, weary of
cweepinir tho filthy streets of tho city
(with their trailing skirts, havo risen in
their majesty, organized themselves in a
great street cleaning brigade and de
clared war on tho dust scattering ash
.barrel and the foot tripping banana.
'Mrs. Kinnicutt, wife of Dr. Kinnicutt,
of Thirty -seventh street, and Mrs. Rich
ard Irvitt are tho leaders of tho move
ment, and havo been engaged for somo
jtimo in perfecting their plan of attack,
(which was first formally announced at
the working girls' reunion .Monday night.
It is the opinion of these women that tho
much abused commissioner of street
jcleaning and his aids aro no more to
jblnmo for tho disgraceful condition of
,tho streets than aro tho careless lionse
liohb'rs and pedestrians who thought
lesIy add their mite of disorder to tho
fcreat aggregation of dirt for which our
fair island city has gained a world wido
These ladies, together with Mrs. Gus
jfcav Kissel. Miss Frolinghuysen and others
tis directors, havo rented an office at 221!
West Thirty-eighth street, hired a secre
tary, and announced to tho mayor their
intention of constituting themselves a
.bureau of information, whero all com
plaints relating to street nuisances may
be received, ami rules and regulations
tissued in accordance with tho city or
dinances. ( As n Ix'ginning tho matter was pre
sented by Mrs. Irvin to tho great assem
bly of working girls, to each of which
an envelope containing t wenty-fivo mem
bership slips to this new society was
given at tho door. There will bo no fees
or dues of membership, but each person
rngning tho slip promises to keep her own
outdoor premi&es neat and orderly, to
put her ashbarrel out in time for tlio
fish man and not sooner, to avoid throw
ing bits of paper or any refuse upon tho
pavement, and above all to report any
neglect of tho rules which sho sees any
where in tho city.
I 5n return for tlio signed pledgoof mem
bership a card will bo sent prepared for
hanging upon tho wall, and giving tho
rules referred to above in (Jerinan or
Italian as well us English, according to
,tho nationality of the member.
Just at present tlio new society is oc
cupied in obtaining and classifying their
snembers according to tho districts in
which they reside. Very influential
people aro already included in tho mem
bership, and very soon tho organized
plans of work will bo published to tho
.public and members. Associated with
"tho women in this work are many of tlio
most influential men in tho city, and all
aro detiiiniined to havo Now York high
,wuyB and byways as neat, orderly and
.beautiful as those of Paris or Berlin.
In Paris, if a person thrown a torn let
tor or anything disorderly upon tho
pavement, ho is obliged to pick up tho
litter or bo escorted by a gendarme to
tho nearest police station to pay his tine.
3t is claimed by the Women's Street
Cleaning Aid society th;:t tlio ordinances
aro equally binding in Now York if
eomo ono would enforce them. Now
that the eyes of this great ariny of wom
en aro looking out for tho offender, let
him or her beware, for women aro good
detectives and extremely conscientious
in performing their duty, particularly
when, us In this case, the name of tlio
informer is carefully guarded from tho
ones they inform against. Now York

echool teachers of the western states
(who came near losing their lives during
the great blizzard of .Ian. 12, 1889, was

to Charles S. Thomas, a well known
At tho time of tho great blizzard, Miss
Jloyce, who was then eighteen years old,
fwaa teaching in a country school near
Plainviow, Neb. On tho day in question
nho found three pupils at her school in
tho morning. j
During the day the storm increased in ,
fury, and at tho close of school tho
teacher and the pupils wero uuablo to i
Seavo tho building. Tltoy remained un
til all of their fuel was iimmI up, and they
vero becoming afraid they would freozo

lull in tlio storm, tho teacher determined
to make an effort to reach a house a few
rods from the school building. Taking
tho two youngest children by tho hand
mid bidding the other to follow close be
hind her, tlio teacher started out on what
proved to bo a terrible journey. Hardly
had they left the school building when
tho storm again increased, and in a short
time they had lost their way.
After wandering about until all of tho
party had become exhausted and could
go no farther they laid down together.
During the night two of ihr children
died in the teacher's arms. In tho morn

to death, succeoded in reaching a lioiiso,

Maiden vitoii- Matron.
Some time and in somo fashion tho
young tin wedded woman will be called
npon to make a decided stand against
the invasion of tho matron upon her
siiecial province. There is scarcely place
left now for the solo of her slipper be
tween the schoolroom and strip of carjKjt
before tho matrimonial altar. Sho is
simply driven into a corner and told to
marry at once or lay down her passport
into realms of social gayety. This arro
gance of tho married woman concerning
her monopoly of society amusements is
intolerable. Sho won't hear to having
unpaired belles brought into competi
tion with her attractions. If they chooso
to cliimo it must bo with a conjugal
clapper, and not as merry, independent
tinklers, ringing a distracting little tuno
of ununited friskmess.
Girls are still permitted to havo de
buts, but even on those great occasions
the young matron steps in, and, by right
of double blessedness, takes all the cakes
and ale. Tlio shy, sweet miss is left to
cut a poor figure indeed. And so on,
from first to last, tho married woman
opens tho ball, leads tho german, occu
pies tho opera boxes, demands all the din
ner invitations, fills tlio victoria, receives
at the tea, thereby squeezing tho girl
into such a small corner no one is ever
able to find her behind madam's over
crowded engagement book.
Mrs. Burton Harrison has instituted a
demand for tho restoration of tho Amer
ican maiden as she existed before Euro
pean customs came to smother her light
under the bushel of an artificial society.
Not many years ago Uncle Sam's virgin
daughter was tho pride of the nation.
Her girlish wit and independence, her
innocent fearlessness, her jollity, shrewd
ness nud beauty wero tho boast of the
civilized world, and with impunity did
sho set her proud feet on tlio hearts of
mankind. Men admired and reverenced
her, for here, they said, is a new order
of women. Untrauinieled by tho obliga
tions of wife and motherhood, she is free
to accept our entire devotion; with tho
discretion and knowledge of the matron
she combines the freshness of a maiden.
Heretofore this union was held to be
impossible, and she has realized man's
ideal. But, alas! whence has this clear
eyed troddess of girlish liberty lied away;
A Wnniiill .Minle mi IikIIiiii.
For the first lime in tho history of tho
North American Indians a white wom
an, Mrs. Harriet Maxwell Converse, has
received the honor of a national adop
tion by an Indian nation. Instances of
"name giving" have not been infrequent
among the Indians, tho "naming" being
accompanied with considerable cere
mony, and usually terminating with a
feast. These ceremonies, however, aro
purely complimentary, evidencing a feel
ing of friendship for tho person "named"
and appreciation for some act of kind
ness. But this is tho first instance in In
dian annals of a formal adoption of a
white woman into an Indian community,
to become an actual member of their
nation, to be fully recognized as such
and entitled to all tho privileges of one
of tho blood.
So tho legal admission into their na
tion of Mrs. Converse, the poet and In
dianologist, by the president and coun
cillors of tho New York state Seneca In
dians, and their recognition of her as
one of their own people, is unique. Mrs.
Converse has always defended tho rights
of tho Indians of this state, anil sho ef
fectively aided tho Indian delegation at
Albany to oppose a bill before tho as
sembly which, if carried as a Jaw, would
havo deprived them of their lands. Tlio
bill was killed in committee. Before
the hearing of tho Indians by tho com
mittee Mrs. Converse had been invited
to sit in their Six Nations council, held
at Albany, an honor never before be
stowed upon a white woman save Mary
.leuiison. This Six Nations, the most
important of all the Indian councils,
convenes only in cases of urgency and is
representative of the rights of all tho
Indians of tho league of tho Iroquois.
When tho Seneca national council, in
session at Carrollton, Cattaraugus coun
ty, N, Y., in tho Allegany reservation,
was called an application was laid be
fore that body to tho effect that, "by
love and affection" it was tho desire of
the Indians that Mrs. Converse should
bo received into their nation as a legal
member of it. Upon this appeal u vote
was taken, and it was unanimously re
solved that she bo at once invited to ap
Iear before tho council and receive her
Indian name. New York Cor. Boston

One of the few bright afternoons re
cently enjoyed by New Yorkers served
to bring out a brilliant array of proine
nailers and equipages in Fifth avenue.
Tlio drive was crowded with carriages,
when one of a team of horses attached
to u rattling, banging, lumbering Fifth
avenue stage slipod and fell. As is
usual in such common occurrences, tho
falling animal served to entangle him
self in his bariums in such a way that
owry time ho struggled to arise ho was
tripled and made to fall mjnln. Tho
commotion caused a largo group of
prouietiaders to gather at the spot, and
there was tho usual amount of "guying"
of tho driver by the bystanders. Tlio
driver was a stupid fellow, and jwr
sis ted in trying to make tho fallen ani
mal rise to his feet.
Among tho interested group of watch
ers were two handsomely dressed women.
One of thum became inipatiunt and irri
tated at tho stupidity of the driver.
"Clara, hold my muff," she said, as she
handed the dainty bit of fur to hur com
panion. Stepping from the curb, she
quickly loosened the catch on tho chain
scotiou of tho tracet of tho standi iifl
lurso, and then unfaitonod the haine
chain in front, leaving ono homo free.
Thin siilHoioiitly cleared the entangle
tnent to enable the fullwn horse to gut
up, and the (wo woman went on their
way, tho ono who hud been so prompt
faying: "It makes me angry to see men
in charge of horses so fearfully stupid.
It is always easier to release thestanding
horse than to untangle tho harness of
the fallen one, and when tho other is led
away the one down can rise easily. Mien
are stupid, anyway." New York Trib
une. Women Delegati-n Not Wnnlril.
The Methodist conference at Yonkers
has decided by a very emphatic vote of
180 to CO that women should not be ad
mitted as delegates to tho general con
ference. The report of the debate does
not show that tho question was discussed
or decided upon its merits. When it is
said that it does not follow because n
woman can sing bass that sho ought to
sing bas, it would seem to bo a sufficient
reply to suggest that if a bass wero
needed to complete a quartet it would bo
rather absurd to reject a bass voico be
cause it was the voice of a woman.
The decisive consideration in the de
bate seems to have been that there was
a divine reason for the difference of
sexes, and that participation inn confer
ence was not included in the sphere of
women. But how the male sex, as such,
qualified those who belong to it as wise
counselors was not stated in any speech
nor illustrated in the argument. There
is always a better way of determining
whether wood will float and stono sink
than any argument based upon a theory.
Tlio better way is experiment. The
counsel of women in schools is proved to
be of very great value. Tho opinion of
a man who thinks that tho counsel was
not meant to bo taken is not an argu
ment against the fact. Harper's Weekly.

The Working Girls' club organization
is quietly but rapidly growing to be a
power among the working people. There
is no talk of combines and strikes, no ag
gressive measures, but they do combine
in social societies which draw them
nearer together, teach them the value of
co-operation, and the spirit and teach
ings of club life instill firmly in their
i minds tho fact that increased capability
means increased wages. There is in the
New York association a bureau for ob
taining situations, and there is to bo
soon trade classes for those who aro un
able to obtain work through incom
petency, when, as Miss Dodge says,
"Those who want to do everything and
do not know how to do anything may
learn to do something, and do it well."

by any power of rhetoric. Beecher,

A WORLD'S FAIR ROMANCE.
One of the I.iidy .Mximgnrft AVon by n Ste-iioj-riiilier
Wlni Took Her Speech.
Monday, just a week ago, Miss Cora
D. Payne, the lady manager from Ken
tucky, disapjieared from the World's fair
headquarters. Sho left a note to the
other ladies, stating that sho had been
called home on important business and
would retiyii in a few days. The ladies
paid no particular attention to the mat
ter, as Miss Payne frequently visited her
southern home and returned without
anything eventful transpiring. When
Miss Payne put in an appearance, how
ever, the ladies put aside their apathy,
for she was no longer MissC. Payne, but
Mrs. Alfred Jackson. Mrs. Jackson was
not dressed in the gala attire of a bride.
Her toilet was even quieter than usual.
It was so quiet that it excited suspicion.
"Have you lo.-tany relatives?" inquired
Mrs. Biillcne, of .Missouri, solicitously.
Mrs. Jackson did not reply at once.
She just blushed and looked down at her
desk. Mrs. Bullene repeated her ques
tion in a louder tone of voice. Still Mrs.
Jackson seemed not to hear it, and acted
in a timorously preoccupied manner. "1
do believe that Miss Payne went away
I and got married," said Mrs. Bulleno to
I another lady manager.
Then a vocal sparring match took place
between the ladies. Mrs. Jackson de
nied emphatically that such was the case,
but her color was so high that she be
trayed herself. Finally, driven to bay,
Mrs. Jackson confessed that she was
Miss Payne came from Kentucky last
fall when the woman's commission met,
and evincing a lively interest in the
woman's branch of exposition work, she
was asked to remain in Chicago and
identify herself with tho Chicago head
quarters. Her husband was at the time
a stenographer in Director General
Davis' office. He is a smooth shaven,
round faced young man, with a peculiar
manner of speech, but it was tho hesitat
ing manner of speech that won the lady
manager from tho south. Every morn
ing they walked to the office together,
and every evening they were seen to de
part in company.
They never knew each other before
tho first session of tho woman's commis
sion. Jackson was sent to take a steno
graphic report of tho meeting. Miss
Payne had just finished making a
speech. The confusion was great at tho
time and Jackson could not catch all
that she said. As she seated herself ho
went quietly over to her seat and asked
her politely to repeat what sho said.
Their eyes met, and it was then that
Miss Payno felt her first sensation of
love and Mr. Jackson lost his heart.
Things progressed nicely until the
time for the marriage came, and it was
t lien Miss Payne suggested a deception
that was executed admirably. Instead
of going home she went with her hus
band that was to be to London, Canada,
where his parents resided, and there
tho marriage ceremony was performed.
Mr. and Mrs. .Jackson will reside in
Chicago, and Mrs. Jackson will continue
to represent her state in tho exposition.

Ho is exceedingly frank and unre
strained in tho expression of his opin
ions, especially when they concern tho
personal appearance of his lieges, and
although extremely disconcerting to the
parties immediately concerned, they con
stitute a source of delight to everybody
else. It was only with the greatest diffi
culty that his mother was able to im
press upon him tho necessity of abstain
ing from making remarks of this char
acter in an audible tone of voico at

bore unexpected fruit.
Tlio king manifestly took it for granted
that the instructions to remain quiet and
silent during divine service applied to
others as well as to himself; for shortly
afterward, when tho royal family and
the court attended mass in state at tho
Attocha church, little Don Alfonso sud
denly interrupted the preacher in tho
midst of oueof his most impassioned nud
eloquent perorations by commanding
him, in a shrill and piping tone of voice,
to bo still, and not to make "such a noise

In the train
of diseases that follow a tor
pid liver and impure blood,
nothing can take the place
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. Nothing will,
after you have seen -what it
does. It prevents and cures
by removing the cause. It
invigorates the liver, purifies
and enriches the blood, sharp
ens the appetite, improves di
gestion, and builds up both
strength and flesh, when re
duced below the standard
of health. For Dyspepsia,
" Liver Complaint," Scrofula,
or any blood-taint it's a posi
tive remedy. It acts as no
other medicine does. For that
reason, it's sold as no other
medicine is. It's guaranteed
to benefit or cure, or the
money is refunded.

"until I become sick and vomit.
" At times, too, I have a fullness

"at the pit of the stomach, and
"sourness, when food seemed to rise
" up in my throat and mouth. When
' ' I feel this coming on if I take a
