There are 999,930 persons, adnlt
males for the greater part, employe 1
In the manufacture and sale of liq
uors in the United States. This is
one to every sixty of the entire pop
ulation. These men, mostly able
bodied, are taken from productive,
that is to say, wealth-producing em
ployments. They are a tar on the
workers, adding no one element ot
prosperity to the common wealth of
the nation. At the low wages which
all of them could earn they would
receive for the 300 working davs of
the -year $272,994,000. Who" e:i:
estimate the loss of permanent weal l i
that this aggregate of wages impli
and suggests ?
The Federal statistics show that
there are in the United States "C0-J.
000 persons daily incapacitated i'
labor by reason of liquor." Tin
number includes the drunkards, t!u
insane, the criminals, and paupen
d ragged down to these classes In
the direct and recognized influence
of using intoxicating drinks. At $1
a day in a year of 300 days the.-f
600,000 persons, placed hors du travail
by the drinking habit, could have
earned $180,000,000, which, added to
the other totals of money cost, and
the loss of the service of the army of
makers and sellers, estimating these
services on the wage basis only,
r18 per annum.
"This vast sum," writes Mrs.
Thompson, "is $23 per capita for
every man, woman and child in the
country. It is nearly equal to our
entire gold, silver, and paper circula
tion combined. It would build and
equip 30,000 miles of railroad; pay
the cost of the public schools for fif
teen years ; erect and maintain 12,
000 colleges; send out and support
1,200,000 missionaries; pay the en
tire national debt of the country,
national, State and municipal, in
less than four years; construct GOO
first-class ocean steamers; erect and
maintain 3,750 hospitals, libraries, or
homes for the aged; provide one
third of the people in the United
States with homesteads of 100 acres
each ; run the Post- office Department
for thirty-four years; support the
navy for seventy-five years ; pay our
foreign consular service for 1,723
years; purchase at $7 a barrel, 107,

Tiie a Fellow's Wife.
Eat-h man about town knows the
good fellow, but how many ever see
the good fellow's wife? Come, sur
prise her on some Wednesday when
a club dinner has taken tlie good
fellow away from home to enliven
the "Jolly lioys" reunion. Her din
ner consists of sandwiches left over
from lunch, for it is "cook's after
noon out," and better is a cold sand
wich and quiet than a hot roast .with
additional backache tired woman's
constant companion. The good fel
low's wife must scrimp herself at
home that champagne may flow
where the "Jolly Boys" dine. "One
must not be called stingy, my dear,
it would be ruin," reiterates tlie
good fellow, until his helpmeet be
comes indeed the biblical spare-rib
in her well-meaning efforts to assist
her lord's interests.
Perhaps you would rather surprise
her when the good fellow has tele
graphed ten minutes before his arri
val that he intends bringing half a
dozen strangers home to dinner.
Dazed with hurried preparations, her
servants more hinderance than help,
red with table setting and culinary
endeavors, she sits silent at the foot
of the table, eating little and often
inattentive to her guests from a too
sensible solicitude for their comfort.
"What a dummy poor Tom has raar
rried," says his laughing friend.
"Bnt brilliant men usually wed
fools," he thinks, as he smooths his
silk hat when going away.
Tom is a good fellow. There's no
mistake about that down town, where
he dines nnd wines, and shows his
strong white teeth in hearty laugh
ter. His wife was a good fellow, too,
the boys nt'home used to think, before
Tom married her, Of course she is
peevish, she has no club dinners,
nothing but a succession of worrying
servants and encounters with huck
sters and teething children, to vary
tlie monotony .of her sunless days.
She is a good fellow's wife, and tlie
glory of possessing a rollicking hus
band should be her universal pana
cea. Tom does not maltreat his wife.
He is simply careless and thought
less, reserving his brilliancy for
down town and his headaches for
He knows that George Eliot says:
"The best pillow for the head of ge
nius is soft, yielding female medioc
rity," and therefore because he wants
his pillow soft he reduces his wife to
that most subservient condition. The
good fellow makes 'his companions
laugh, but the good fellow's wife
provokes a sigh and sometimes a
tear from those of her own sex who
fiause to consider her too common

j As the custom of early marriage,
, or rather infant marriage, is widely
j prevalent in inaia,tnere is seen a
vast number ot virgin widows nere.
You might frequently see girls of
two or three years married to boys
of seven or eight, and many of them
becoming widows soon after their
marriage. So the number of virgin
widows under fifteen is very large.
In the last census taken in 1831 the
number of such widows in India was
estimated to be about two-thirds of
the whole number of widows. It is
the presence of this large number of
infant and girl widows that make
the custom of perpetual widowhood
the more appalling.
The life a widow leads is very mis
erable. She is not allowed to wear
ornaments or put on fine clothing.
She must not take fish or flesh.
She has to cook her own food, which
generally consists, in middle-class
families, of a small quantity of boil
ed rice and vegetables and milk.
Twice every month she has to fast
the whole day, taking no food or
drink. A widow in most cases de
pends for her subsistence on her
brother or some other near relative,
at whose house she resides and
where she has to perform all the
work of a housewife. In many a
Hindoo home the widow is both the
cook and maid-servant. In certain
homes she is subjected to hard treat
ment, but in many others, be it
noted, her sad lot is most sincerely
sympathized with, and care is taken
not to hurt her feelings. Exchange.

For more than five hundred years
a little fraternity of lawyers has
nestled within the shadows of the
sloping roofs of Gray's Inn. Here
at the "box of a shop" under the
gateway, Jacob Tonson, the famous
publisher, issued Addison's "Cam
paign." Also within its courts Lord
Bacon wrote his "Novum Organum,"
which King James declared as being
"like the peace of God, which pass
eth all understanding." At the gate
way also at one time dwelt Thomas
Osborne, the bookseller, who gave
13,000 for the books from the Har
leian library. The men of Gray's
Inn, in times now passed, wero fa
mous for masks and revels and for
f;orgeous interludes. Hawthorne
oved the place, Dickens fitted it
into his "Uncommercial Traveler,"
Pepys wrote about the fashions that
were flaunted by the promenade rs
orr Sunday after church, and Charles
Lamb has embalmed its beauties in
an epitaph by saying: "Those are
the best gardens of any of the Inns
of court. Bacon has left the impress
of his foot upon the gravel walks."
