The Tsunr Left's Career.
When a girl begins her social ca
reer. after completing her educa
tion, she fiuds the world far differ
ent from what she expected. The
schoolroom is one thing, the world
another. She may have been pop
ular with her teachers, because she
was a diligent scholar, and carried
off the honors of the school, but
she finds that book knowledge does
not make her popular or successful
socially. Some of the most intel
ligent people we have known have
been among the moat disagree -
ble. A woman whose nature is
aggressive, who parades her know
ledge before those of inferior edu
cation, is an object to be dreaded.
Mere learning in a woman is never
attractive, says the New York
Weekly. It fa, ou the contrary,
offensive, unless coupled with fem
inine graces. School learning
should sink into the character and
deportment and only exhibit itself
tt the perfume of a flower h ex
hibited—in « subtle, namefcua and
unobtrusive manner. A woman's
Intellectual acquirements should
simply make her conversation grac
ious and agreeable. Mathematics
should tender her mind dear and
her judgments true; her geograph
ical studies should teach her that
the world la too small for falsenes
to find a hiding place; and his
tory should impress hfr {ha} life is
too short ffp uawprthr ambitions.
Ime between the schoolroom |
and the altar should not be a irft
harvest-time of pleasure, but a
•owing time far all the seeds qf
kindness and self sacrifice for oth
ers, and of unselfishness and benev
olence, which alone can make her
a happy wife and mother.
Newspapers as Ed voters.
"From ten to fifteen minutes
should be devoted in each common
school in Kansas each day to tbe
readitig of current news from some
good daily paper." said State Sup
erintendent Frank N lson 3 fv»v
days ago iq Topjia
"Of course the teacher should
use judgment in selecting the pi
per suul aWu discretion in the char
acter of the news to be read. A
good newspaper is as good an edu
cator as on: of the regular text
books —in fact, better. The pupils
by rending It or !i 4e»ing to it be

the theoretical Tfefc teacher can
eliminate the murders, suicides bur
glaries aud news of that character.
He can select news concentiiig gov

kind. He can read some of the
editorials on subjects not of a po
litical character and also some of

I was teaching. It became the most
pleasant fifteen minutes of the day's
work. It not only.posts children
on the current events of the day,
but helps them in grammar, history

is law which Axes the
fofltine of « schoolroom, and the
(cachet ma arrange his work as be
pleases. For this reason the mat
ter of newspaper reading is left en
tirely in the hands of the teacher.
But show me a school where a
newspaper is read every morning,
and I will staff ygn pupfb that,

Seated one day at the organ,
I was weary aad ill at en* ;
And my fingers wandered idly
Over the noisy keys.
I 1 know not what I was pi tying.
Or what I was dreaming then ;
, But I struck one chord of music
I Like the aouud of a gran I amen.
It flooded the crimssn twilight
Like the close of an angel's psalm,
1 And it lay on my fevered spirit
I Like a touch of an iiiiiuite calm :
- It quieted pain ami sorrow
Like love strife.
It seemed a harmonious echo
Pram our discordant life.
It linked all perplexing meanings
Into one perfect pence, >
And it trembled away into silence,
As H were loath to cease.
I sought, but I seek it vainly.
That one lost chord divine.
Which came from the of the organ,
Aad entered into mine.
It uwr be that death's bright angel
Will s|*nk in that chord again ;
It may he that only in heaven
1 shall hear that grand amen.
—Adelaide Anne Praetor.
Report of Cotton A New Fcatare.
Mr. M. G. Taylor, of Williams
ton, haa been appointed a local
special agent of the Census Office
to collect cotton-ginning atatistics
for thia county, and we join the
Government in urging ths ginne«s
to give Mr. Taylor |h«ir beaity aup
port »ud operation, thus enabling
him to make prompt and accurate
returns. Wc wo«(il impress upon
the ginpers the fact that thia agent
is a sworn officer « f the Govern
meut, and thai their reports are
forwarded as given to him directly
to the Census Office, at Wash:ng
tofl, without passing through the
hands of any middlemen. The in
formation given is held as strictly
confidential, and the operations of
individual ginners arc not divulged.
Upon the jaint co Operation of the
cotton growers, ginrcrs and local
agents must depend the succces o(
the Census Office in inquiry,
and its ability to rendr;; t«sia great
service to Southern people and
to ail interested in the cotton staple.
The Census Oftice has demons
trated jn |hreo annua! reports, the
fact that the ginners are the only
reliable source of information as to
the volume of the annual cotton
crop. This is-aery complimentary
to the ginners, who, 110 doubt, will
feel a p ide in sustaining the repu
tation carded.
Theodore H. Price on Cotton
New York, Qct- B.—An effort
been made to depress the cot-1
ion market to-day by the circula
tion of a report that Mr A J. Bus
ton, a Liverpool cotton merchant
who makes an annual trip to the
South, will shortly publish an es
timate of the crop which it was ru
mored was in the neighborhood of
twelve million bales. I» desire to
warn Southern holders of cqtton
against being affected by Mr. Hus
ton's .estimate- I mean no dis| ar
agemeut of the gentleman himself,
but it is proper that the trade should
understand that he represents a
Liverpool clientage. Liverpool has
to buy American cotton, and it
naturally wants to buy it as cheap
as possible. Whether Mr. Huston's
estimate is tcu million or twelve
QiUiog hale* will not alter the facts
of the case, which arc as follows:
Exports for the season to date are
334.000 bales larger than during
th * same period year ; ship
ments V> Mortliern mills are about
aoQ,opo bafes larger than during,
name period last year. that,
notwithstanding «u excess in the
early receipts of about 560.000
hales, this excess being indicative
el a drought-shortened crop, the
total stocks af cotton at the United
S'.ates ports and at thirteen of the
most impoitant interior towns arc
only about 20,000 bales in excess
of what they were last year. This
shows tlyit th* 1 Wild »**d» the cot

Washington, October it.—The
grand encampment of the G. A. R.
has nearly put a stop to political
talk here for the present, as it ab
sorbs the public's attention. Dem
ocrat* wh« males predictions are
sure of a great Democratic victory
in November. The predictions run
up as high as fifty or sixty major
ity. Many republicans are badiy
scared. The outlook is the most
unfavorable they have had in a
very long time, and gets worse ap
parently every day. A New Yorker
said to me a day or two since:
"The strike is hurting us badly.
If the men would go to work things
would get speedily into better
shape for the Republican party."
I find other Republicans are tak
ing a blue view of affairs. They
thought at first that the New York
Democrats had "put their foot in
it," on the question of eminent do
main in the Federal government;
hut as it becomes, probable that
nothing is going to he done toward

pic do not appear to care a iWlxt
for any other. The Republicans
ate in a dreadful dilemma over the
matter. About half of the Mas
sachusctts Congressional delegation

hxs found it necessary to explain
that the declaration on the subject
by tl»c State convention means what
the revisers demand, although sit
the time of its adoption it was un
derstood *wry where to be much
le«s than had l»ccn asked for. This
fact shows the rapid increase of the
tariff reform sentiment. It is al
ready very strong in the North
The attempt the Republican
speakers and newspapers tu prove
that the trusts have no connection
with the tariff is laughable in the
?a«; of the exposures made by the
report of the Industrial Commis
sion, which certainly was ttot a
Democratic body. Many of the
great trus\s ptuduce from 60 to 90-
i*id per cent of the article manufac
tured in this country and are pro
tected. Strike off this protection
and the trusts arc brought to their
kuces forthwith, while no import
