WOMEN DEGRADED BY THE BIBLE.
We have bad female acrobats, fe
male bicyclists and female ball play
ers. That we now have a female
atheist is what might have been ex-
Sected. Mr. Bob Ingersoll long ago
emonstrated by the success of his
lectures that atheism may be made a
profitable profession, and if people
will flock to hear a man blaspheme
his Maker they will flock with great
er alacrity to hear a woman perform
a" similar feat. A female atheist, be
ing more unusual than a male atheist,
can hardly fail to be more attractive,
and her blasphemies will have a pi
quancy peculiarly their own.
Women ought to be profoundly
grateful to the female lecturer who,
on Sunday last, denounced the Bible
and the Christian religion as the ene
mies of woman. There has always
been an impression that Christianity
had elevated woman, but a few intel
ligent atheists have never failed to
recognize the folly of this impression.
The female lecturer fearlessly charged
the Bible was insulting, enslaving
and degrading woman. This charge
is so true and forcibly expressed that
it ought to win for the lecturer the
enthusiastic gratitude of her sex.
The religion of the Bible teaches
that woman has a soul. The lecturer
evidently regards this as an atrocious
calumny, and there can be no doubt
that the belief that woman has a soul
has done much to degrade her. It has
made it seem necessary to her to
secure the safety of her alleged soul
by embracing the Christian religion,
and that religion its votaries to obey
the laws of morality. No unpreju
diced person, therefore, will deny that
religion enslaves woman. Nothing
could be more conclusive than this
The Bible has also degraded woman
by teaching the revolting dogma that
we should treat others as we desire to
be treated. This dogma is perhaps
unobjectionable when it governs the
treatment of women by men, but it
degrades women by curtailing their
liberties. It requires a wife to treat
her husband kindly, no matter what
her natural impulses may be, and it
forbids a woman to be selfish and un
feeling in her conduct towards others.
Just so far as woman obeys these tin
just demands she becomes a slave,
and is consequently degraded. She
can only become free by renouncing
Christianity and treating its require
ments with contempt.
Christianity, with its insulting as
sumption that a woman has a soul,
and its tyrannical demand that
she shall be unselfish and obe
dient to the laws of morality, is, as
the lecturer showed on Sunday last,
utterly beneath the notice of any
true woman. If a woman is weak
enough to want a religion, let her
embrace Mohammedanism, which
does not insult her by theories as to
her pretended soul, and threatens"her
with no worse punishment than the
whip or the bowstring of her husband.
There, too, is Mormonism, which does
sot compel a wife to live in solitude
with her husband, but gives her the
company of other wives, aDd so ele
vates her mind and morals. It is
astonishing that the world should so
long have accepted the claim that
Christianity elevates woman, and
lovers of truth can not be too grate
ful to the noble female atheist who
hks exposed the falsity of the claim,
exercised for herself her natural right
to shriek "There ain't no God, and
I wouldn't believe in Him if there
waB! Now there!" N. T. Times.
"To show you that oysters have
ense, I will tell you what I have seen
a hundred times. I have stood be
hind a tree on Cat Island, in the Mis
sissippi Sound, many a moonlight
night, and watched the oysters when
the tide was out, and those near the
spit we're either partly or entirely out
of water. The island is full of rac
coons, which skirmish around all
night looking for soft-shell crhbs,
fish and oysters. The oyster opens
his shell to air himself, or maybe to
catch unwary mosquitoes, or sand
flies, when the coon, who is on the
lookout, sneaks up behind until he is
near enough, and thrusts his paw into
theshelL Very often the oyster is
extracted, so quick is the 'coon's
movement, but sometimes the 'coon
gets the worst of it If the oyster is
anyways fly, and manages to hear the
Voon creeping up, he waits until the
"paw is thrust in, and then
clamps down upon "it You inow
what a grip an oyster has. The 'coon
of course, is fast caught in a steel
trap, you might say. But if it is a
single oyster and not strongly im
bedded in the bottom, the 'coon pulls
it out and hops off to a tree, where he
pounds the oyster until the shell is
broken, and leisurely feasts upon it
His paw is sore, but he has been suc
cessful, and he is satisfied. If, how-
ever, the oyster happens to be one of
the cluster fast in the bottom, the
'coon would be in a bad fix. I have
,een at least fifty slick old 'coons
(&aght in that way and have to spend
"ih night in the oyster bed. When
the' tide began fo rise and they saw
that they had to get away or drown,
4Eey would gnaw off their imprisoned
paws and hobble away on three legs.
When the water got high the oyster
would spit the paw out. I've picked
ap'R thousand such paws." Chicago
jte Mormon Church figures up
pdi a, 'formidable array of digna
taries. It now includes a president,
twelve 'apostles, fifty-eight patriarchs,
three thousand eight hundred and
eiriitv-five sentinels, three thousand
v me hundred and fiftv-three hio-h-
priests, eleven thousand choirs, one
taos&nu. iivo uunarea oisuops, ana
fafcrthousand four hundred deacons.
IfcfAriraDa there is a membership of
two thousand two hundred and sixty
two. In -Idaho twice as many, and
Mormon missionaries are at work all
orer,Europe and the United States.
The New York Sun frantically
heuts: "Where is the American
,MUor?" Don't know. If he will only
wait patiently until next June we can
ir$ him a job piloting disappointed
2MKLta&l candidates up' Salt river.
How it Feels to be Scalped.
Marvin Holly, of Dearborn county,
Ind., has a tender pink spot three
inches wide on the top of his head
where he was scalped in 18G9. He
has recently been in New York and
told of his adventures. Holly was
with Custer's command when the at
tack was made on Black Kettle's
camp, in the Big Horn valley. After
desperate fighting, he fell with a
shattered arm. The rest of the story
is in his own werds: "Suddenly I
heard a shot, and two squaws fell
dead in the snow by my side. One
of our boys had discovered my situa
tion. The papooe3 and squaws in
stantly scampered away, but the In
dian was determined to run the risk
of getting my scalp anyhow, and he
bounced down on me with his knees
on my chest, drew his knife and, the
next second, although it seemed
hours to me, the top of my head was
in his hand, and he was gone. Im
agine some one who hates you with
the utmost intensity grabbing a hand
ful of your hair while you are lying
prostrate and helpless, and giving it
a sudden jerk upward with force
enough almost to loosen the scalp;
then, while this painful tension is not
relaxed, imagine the not particularly
sharp blade of a knife being rnn
quickly in a circle around your scalp
with a saw-like motion. Then let
your imagination Jgrasp if it can
the effect that a strong, quick jerk on
the tuft of hair to release the scalp
from any clinging particles that may
hold it in place would have on your
nervous and physical systems, and
you will have some idea how it feels
to be scalped. When that Indian
sawed his knife around the top of my
head first a sense of cold numbness
pervaded my whole body. This was
quickly followed by a flash of pain
that started at my feet and ran like
an electric shock to my brain. That
was but momentary, but it was tern- j
oie. wnen tue xnman tore my scaip
from my head it seemed as if it must
have been connected with cords to
every part of my body. The pain
that followed the cutting around the
scalp had been frightful, but it was ,
ecstacy compared with the torture
that followed the tearing of it from
my head. Streaks of pain shot to
every nerve. My knees were drawn
up almost to my chin, and my fingers
closed convulsively together in the
snow, and that was all I -remember.
When I came to, I was in a tent. !
The cavalry had come up in the mean
time, and the Indians were routed.
Only a few escaped, but Black Kettle
was among them. A comrade told
me that he had shot and killed the
Indian who had scalped me, but the
scalp was not recovered at any rate.
I, with the rest of the wounded, was
sent to the nearest agency, and I lay
helpless and suffering untold misery
for weeks, and when I recovered I
concluded that I had seen enough of
Indian fighting, and asked for my
discharge. The nature of my wound
were such that I received my dis
charge at once. Gem Custer jocu
larly remarked to me afterward that I
made a mistake in leaving the service.
'Think,' said he, 'how surprised and
disgustedsome red devil of an Indian
might be if you should stay with us
and happen to fall into his hands
when he went to raise your hair to
find that some one had been there
before him.' " !

It is said that the stars and stripes
never float over the state house at
Columbia, S. C. When the legisla
ture is in session there is raised in
stead a tattered rag of dark blue, with
the representation of a palmetto tree
and a rattle snake coiled at the bot
tom. The "tattered rag" should be a
gray one; thus its significance would
be more apparent.
