Almost ill with excitement, the poor
captain drove, with a policeman as pro

dropped into a filthy cellar, where, amid
the borrib'e leakage of draiu pipes and

started up when the eaptaiu and his

Men and Women.
The real difference between the
mentlo calibre of the two sexr
lies probably at the very founda
tion of their natures. That thin
difference in eatlier growth
should be scarcely apparent, is only
in accordance, with the law of like
ness which pertains to all primary
conditions,whilc the differentiation
that eventually occurs.to use one
of Mr Spencer.s terms.is simply in "
obedience to that principle of di
vergence evolution, which marke
nil the aspects of nature. ....
The common assertion that men
have superior opportunity we.
believe, in the main. unfounded. -There
are higher universities for
men.biiti with the great bulk of,
mankind opportunity is more favor
able to women than men. The
ripest culture among men is often
the product of sell-teaching; and
books are as accessible to one ex .
as to the other, while with unmar
ried women, at least, the leisure for
study is more abundant than with
men. A jyirtou's Ju rim I.
