how about the time when women ;e

Women were theu the huma i part.
And were men then merely creatures
"tolled. off"! (the oftener . one sees this

that Mr. Allen does not know tnat wo

liizition weakens this biai; still, even
in i his dav, now and then it starts up
with all its ancient power to distor".
Tne teach n.s of Christ gave the fir.-t
blow to tais ternicioui bias. For nLtuy
yars after Christ, within Christian
h irehes, women were on eq nhty
wiih men. Women might preach ami
perform religious rires eq tally with
men; bits w.i sank out of sight.
When the male priests gained a little
temporal power the old spirit of domi
nance sprung up in their breasts, and
they legaii to hold church councils
and canon laws to suppress w
inen. Women were forb.d leu to
preach, enter th altar, to administer
the sacrament, to p rfrin baptismal
rites. We have reason t i believe
christian women did not so quickly
submit. During several centuries
church councils agin and again issued
Cinon laws to silence wo ne . i rMchers.
Daring all the.e centuries the m ile
priests gave an the reason why women
siiould not preach the old story that
Eve's iiioled.eiice had brought sin in
the worl l; that but for fve earth
would be a ptradise, that Eve's female
descendants are unworthy to preach
the religion of Christ bec iuse female
descendants are more prone to have
de dings

In their efforts to reduce Christian
women to subjection the oh priests so
persistently decried and depreciated all
womanhood they poisoned th uiinds
of the laity against them; it wai the
warfare which brotnrht .ulxHit celibac
of the pri. 8 hood. The first Christian
priests were permitted to marry. St.
Uhrvsostom summed up the 'priest I
estimate of womanhood in a few terse
"Woman," s id this worthy saint.
,4js a necessary evil, a natural tempt.
tion, a desirable calamity, a domestic
eril and a deadly fascination.'
St. Jer .me taught tint it was hardly
jjOA-ible tor a married priest to euter
heaven; if, by the skin of his teeth he
managed to get in, he could never take
that high pi ace reserved for the uumai
ried. St: Jerome said that marriage
was chiefly valuable because they
furnish the rate with house builders,
students of biology thrown in. If Mr.
Alb h is not himself a lineal descend
ant t f St. Jerome, it will not be denied
that his ide. s of - woman" hate come
d wu in a -straight line from that good
old stint. These priestly teachings in
t me bore the bitterest irui ; sex ani
mosity grew so intense, it culminated
in the most awful persecution of wo
men the minds even of devils could
conceive oi; a persecution which did
iot cease until, as historians estimate,
9.UVl,0M) innocent women had been
tor. 1 1 red to death by tire and fagoij
In one day, oi.e hour, in the pn Ida
q ntre of a Christian city n France.
4u0 Christian women, guilty of no
crime whatever, were burned to death
at the stake. The charges against tin
jvomeii were thaV..thry,w had dealings
vit h the devil. A traveler through
Scotland c.tsmllv relates that in one
i t.. i
a-ty s journey ne saw nine women
burning at the stake. Tno Hands ot
Christian women were burned to death
on the charge of being married to the
devil. Every one of these false and
foolish charges were based on theVton
that Eve brought sin into the world.
Every one of these KK),000 murders ol
iiihocent women were eaiiM'd by the
s one sex-'iias and distortion of judg
ment which has com 4ovn through
tne centuries and fallen so lilieralli
on the miiid of Mr. Grant Allen.
Only a short while ago in u Sunday
school, the lesson of the creation w..s
taught. : A bay of twelve took it in
greediiy,;ai:d next day lieiug require .
b. the public schtxd teacher to write a
compo liion, he selected "Woman" as
his these and wrote as follows:
"tfy womtn wa Eden lost and man
curst. If you trust her give up all
hope of heaven. Woman cannot hve.
because she i- t'o. selfish. She may
have a fancy, but it is fleeting; her
smil s arc deceit, her vows are triced
in sand. She is a thread of candor.
with a web of wiles. Her ch irity i
hypocrisy. Complexion, heart, tovgue
and all, oil, I hate you, ye cold compo
sition of art."
This boy bids fair to become as learn-

most apt to upply to some merchant

our washing and high collar bill.
Though we are in town, and by the
industrious farmer lniys of our former

why flowers are oue-ided, or second as
this character is technically called.
