DECEPTION AMONG WOMEN.

broudomtd, It luiH bwn (Uncovered that
the proportion o( women clerks, CHHliiers
and lorowoimtn, who betray the trust re
potted in them, is much less than that of
male employes. Opposite this, us if the
purpose were to balance the sins of the
sexes, wc mid the simple proposition
that, as a rule, women are more decep
tive than men, but the deception is prac
ticed either in small matters or in senti
ment. If we eliminate love from the calcula
tions, woman is still the more deceptive
in small thiiiKs. That is to say, she may
plead guilty to petit larceny, while her
big brother covers the entire gamut,
from grand larceny to murder. If this
were true, it is not difficult to account
for the difference between man and
womankind. The majority of women
depend largely upon their husbands,
lathers or brothers, In the maintenance
of the house and table, to suy nothing of
personal adornment, there are very fow
men who place their purse at their wife's
disposal. Nineteen out of twenty have
Acen their mothers appealing to the head
of the house for money that should have
been given to her us hers by right.
The muu's'poiut of view and the wom
an's point of view are so far apart that it
tukes time to bridge it, and as the wom
an is usually the bridge builder, what
wonder if she wearies, resolves to take
thi' shortest and easiest way and prac
tices some small deception? Muny u girl
witli honest impulses, candid to a fault,
lias been mated to a man whose lack of
sensibility, sordid views of life, greed or
indifference changed the entire charac
ter of her life. She has kept her own
counsel and "munaged" her husband to
the best of her ability. Is this excusable
Many years ago the judges in Englund
ruled that if a man had uvennes of flight
open, no matter how sorely he might be
beset, to turn and slay his assaiiunt was
murder, and many thousands were
hanged for preferring to kill another
rather than stand or he overtaken and
slain. Of lute the judges have changed
the ruling. The interpretation of the
law is different. Whereas iu former
years no man dare assail his opitoneut
until he wive driven to the wall, now we
have the common sense decision that a
man need not flee from an assassin,
turning his back and inviting death.
He may face his opponent and kill him
. rather tiian risk being killed. If this
ruling is just, what shall we say of the
men whose miserly practices or greed or
indifference deprives their wives or
daughters of the opportunity to enjoy
life within their meansr
The best answer to the assertion that
women are more deceptive than men is
found in those families where the parents
do not discriminate against their daugh
ters; where it Is assumed that theduugh
ters are entitled to us much money as
the sons, and the sons are taught that
the earnings of the minors are common
stock. The girls practice no more de
ception than the toys. They develop
into independent, fair minded women
And they may lie relied npon to preserve
their self respect and the respect due
In the practical, everyday affairs of
life the equality taught by the master is
impressed in a manner that makes char
acter. And characterless women are
the only companions that characterless
men are worthy of. Pittsburg Bulletin.

Inoreueud Hound at Night.
I would like to ask if you have ever
noticed the acoustio phenomenon of
greater audibility of sounds after night
fall? There have been hundreds of at
tempts to account for this singularity in
the matter of sounds, the theories being
almost as numerous as the theorists
themselves. The ancients noticed that
the intensity of all sounds was inorensod
at night and ascribed the phenomenon
to various causes, some almost as absurd
as the reasons (?) assigned by certain mod
ern scientists. fit. Louis Republic.

Tho (JfMlN of American Indiana, j
Whenever one reads of the religion of
Indians reference is matte to their belief in
a "great spirit," and iu the "happy hunt
ing grounds" of future reward. As a mat
ter of fact., neither of these things enters
at all into the faith at the North American
aborigines, save in so far as they have ac-
uired a notion of them from the white
man. Tliey represent merely tne ixcd ana
heaven of the Christian missionaries. The
deities worshiped by these untutored sav
ages are primarily the phenomena of na
ture. Among them thunder is consplcu-
ims, while the lightning, the winds, the
rain, etc., are likewise regarded with ado
ration. To this day the Iroquois can often be
seen making to the approaching storm his
little propitiatory of burned tobacco. By
his uatiou the thunder god is regarded
with especial veneration us the henehceut
divinity which destroyed the giant mon
sters that once upon a time poisoned the
waters and infested the land. That such
gigantic creatures did anciently exist is
ident from the fossil bones often discov
ered of beasts so huge that nothing hut a
holt from the sky could have annihilated
Very different from this friendly god of
the Iroquois is the hostile north wind,
which brings calamity in its train, killing
the unriie corn, freezing the rivers, de
privlug the prople of their sustenance, and
with the touch of its icy fingers rendering
the hunter stiff iu death, ltaho, in tiie be
lief of tins people, is likewise a deity, exer
cising his power in times of war by repeat
ing among the hills their cries of "Gowehl"
This renders their victory certain, wood
and evil spirits alsu play an impor
tant part in their mythology. Among
the good spirits ure tiiree sisters, who
preside over the favorite vegetables-
corn, beans and squashes. Jbey love
each other very dearly, aud their vines
grow iu the same soil and cling about each
other. Tiie corn spirit is draped with long
leaves and single tassels; the sister who
guards the bcun is clad iu its delicate ten
drils, while the spirit of squashes Is clothed
with the brilliant blossoms of the plant. -
Htm the Muyor of Venice W11 Chueti.
The Vaiiellfiu legirjliitornt despairing of !
Bating an eleution which would uut be i
controlled by politicians' intrigues, called
in the lot ah their helper.
When a doge wuk 10 be elected the great
couucil of between 400 and &00 rueuiberij,
was called together. Those below thirty
yearn of age were Kbut out and the names
of the rent were written on Klips of paper.
A Hiuali boy wan then picked up on the
street and brought lu to draw out thirty
Out of tbeite thirty, nine were chosen to
go on with the election. They were to
choose forty othera. Four of them DOini-
uated live each, live of them four each, and
each of the forty must be continued by a
two-thirds vote of the nine. Out of these
forty names twelve were taken by lot.
The twelve In the same way chowe a new
hoard of tweuty-ltve, the chairman nomi
nating three and each of the others two, a
three-fourths vote being necessary to elect.
Lots were again drawn for niue of the
twenty-five. These nine iu the same way
chose forty-five others, of whom the lot
picked out eleveu.
These eleveu, still iu the same form,
nominated forty-one to elect the doge,
Each 0! these must be continued by a ma
jority vote of the whole great council.
Then the forty -one were locked up together
to go on with their election. While they
were locked up each of them was furnished
with whatever he asked for, regardless of
expense. But the name must be given to
each of the forty-oue.
For iiinUt.ee, there was once an elector
who wished to read in jKsop's Fables. He
got, his book, but not till all Venice had
been ransacked to find the necessary forty
oue copies. At auother time oue of them
ordered a rasary. Forty-one rosaries made
their appearance iu due form.
This treatment was expected to make the
electors so unanimous that at least twenty
five of them won Id agree on a doge. When
this took place the rigmarole was over. An
evening newspaper, trying to follow there
turns in Venice at that time, would have

An Advautuge Mu Have.
The longer I live the more firmly con
vinced I am that men have the advan
tage of women in everything iu life, and
we shall never be their equals in the
Btruggle till we can have many more of
their privileges than custom is willing
to grant us now. For instance, if a man
wants a new spring suit he simply goes
to see his tailor the same tailor he has
patronized for years. Tiie tailor shows
him one line of cloth. The happy man
gives a quick but comprehensive look at
the goods, selects that which suits his
taste from the group 01 materials that
nits his pocket, and the deed is done.
He relies on his tailor's judgment as to
whether the coat shall be sack, cutaway
or frock, and so walks off.
It never occurs to a man to get sam
ples of the goods and then run around to
every other tailor shop in town to see if hi
can't get a bargain or a little bit cheaper
material that would "look just as well."
It .never occurs to a man to "talk it
over" with every male friend, to discuss
the new cut in trousers and whether
such a color would be becoming to him.
He relies on his tailor to furnish not only
a reasonably good style to his suit, but
also one that is suited to his customer's
Imagine a man getting on a street car
and meeting two men friends and pro
ducing a lot of samples, Baying: "Ohl
Charley, I want to show you some sain
plos I got of my new coat. Now, don't
you think I'm too dark to wear that
color? But it's bo cheap' etc.,.--etc.,
while Charley and Francis gave their
opinions and inspected the samples,
Wouldn't it be funny?
Then Charley should say (to make the
scene complete): "Yes, bat that's old.
Why, they wore goods like that all last
year. John Jorome had some trousers

Two llipeda Meet.
A gentleman slowly sauntering down
Seventeenth street the other night was
startled by a shrill whistle that sounded
close behind him. He naturally stopped
and looked around, but saw no one. He
started on, but had proceeded only a few
yards when the whistle, louder and
shriller than before, was repeated.
Again he looked around, and again he
saw no one. Then his heart misgave
him, for the hour was almost midnight.
Vague, unutterable fears clutched at his
soul, nntil his sleek locks grew to resem
ble the quills of that notoriously fretful
But suddenly the mystery was solved.
He chanced to glance overhead, think
ing that probably, like the May Queen,
he had heard the angels call, when he
perceived a parrot in a cage that dan
gled from a second story window. The
eyes of the feathered and featherless
bipeds met, and the parrot quickly and
appropriately remarked, "What are you
looking at, you blamed fool!'' Philadel
How A corns Are Eaten.
Acorns form an important article of

They are bruised into meal and made
