THE NEW NORTHWEST, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1881. 3 THE LOOM OK LIFE. All day, all night, I can henr the Jar Of the loom of lire, and near and far It thrills with Its deep and muffled sound, As tireless the wheels go always round. 1 Busily, ceaselessly goes the loom, In the light of day and the midnight's gloom ; And the wheels are turning early and late, And the woof Is wound In the warp of fate. Click, click! there's a thread of love woven In; Click, click! another of wrong and sin. "What a checkered thing this life will be When we see It unrolled In eternity 1 "When shall this wonderful web be done? In a thousand years, perhaps, or one, Or to-morrow ! Who knoweth ? Not you nor I ; But the wheels turn on and the shuttles fly. Ah, sad-eyed weavers, the years are Hlow, But each one is nearer the end, I know; And soon the last thread shall be woven In God grant it bo love Instead of sin. Are we spinners of good in this lifo-web say ? Do we furnish the weaver a thread ouch day? It wore ...

6 THE NORTHWEST, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1881. CHAMBER SCENE. 'She rose from her untroubled sleep And put away her soft brown hair, And In a tone as low and deep Ax lover's whisper, breathed n prayer -Her snow-white hands together pressed. Her blue eyes sheltered In the lid, The folded linen on her breast Just swelling from the charms it hid And from her long and flowing dress Escaped a bare and slender foot, Whoso form upon the earth did press Like a new snow-flake, white and mute; And there, from slumber pure and warm, Like a young spirit fresh from heaven. She bowed her slight and graceful form, And humbly prayed to be forgiven. O God ! if souls unsoiled as these Need daily mercy from Thy throno; If she, upon her bended knees, Our loveliest and our purest one She, with a face so clear and bright "We deem her some stray child of light; If she, with those soft eyes In tears, Day after day in her first years, Must kneel and pray for grace from Thee "What for, far deeper need have we?...

THE NEW NORTHWEST, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1881. TECHNICAL EDUCATION FOR WOMEN. "Stacy," the Washington correspondent of the Woman's Journal, writes of the recent Senatorial debate on the bill to establish colleges for indus trial and technical education : Suggestions for industrial education come largely from the newer States of the West and trom the bouth. The amendment of Senator .Morgan, of Alabama, was especially interestiiiR as coming from that section that has been used to most conservative ideas concerning the sphere of men. He proposed "to require each State and Territory to establish in laid colleges, schools for the instruction of females in such branches of leohnical education as are suitable to their sex." Mr. Jones, of Florida, objected mildly that this biu was mainly important as a means of "enlight enfog that portion of the American people who were intrusted with the duties and powers of gov ernment," and that its value would be weakened "by taking away this fund from...

8' THE ' MTV NORTHWEST, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1881. Concluded from first page. the time had come when the physical force of women was ndeded in the battle of thought and effort. In conclusion, Mr. Gray declared that women had a right to demand equality of social and political privilege, position and action. Miss Augusta Allen recited "The Angels of Buena Vista." Rev. J. A. Cruzan was the next speaker. He aid that the ladies were destined to vote, and that no one would welcome the inevitable more courteously and graciously than he would -accept it. "Without rellecting upon Woman Suf fragists and their work, Mr. Cruaan declared that he did not believe that universal suffrage was the panacea for all ills. He spoke at some length upon the subject. He advocated the establish ment of intelligence and property qualifications for voters. If Woman Suffrage will benefit the American Nation, he is in favor of it. He paid handsoino compliments to the ladies in various positions in tbe past and...

'J: TBAVEIL Living near by and yet quite distinct from the Japanese population of Yezo, the most northern of the four principal islands comprising Japan, is a singular race of people, called the Ainos. It is commonly supposed that they were the original inhabitants of Japan, and that they were con quered and driven into their present northern home by tltc race which now peoples the land, just as the Indians of North America have re treated into the western wilds before the white man. Comparatively little has been known of those Ainos, but Miss Bird, author of "Unbeaten Tracks in Japan," spent many days among them, living in the house of a village chief, and talking with them freely of all their afiiiirs. That sho could do this, having but a single Japanese at tendant, and receive nothing but courtesy and kindness from young and old, shows that they are not savage in disposition, how...

I sat in the editorial sanctum (the chief was in Europe, and consequently I had twice as much work as usual to do), toiling through a long man uscript, and wishing with all my heart that the distinguished writer had seen fit to use the fa miliar letters of the alphabet instead of hiero glyphics of his own, indistinctly -resembling them when there came a light tap at the door. "Come," I called, rather sharply, for I was a little vexed at being interrupted. The door opened slowly, disclosing a lightly clad much too lightly clad for a cold January day, as I saw at a glance girlish figure standing on the threshold. ' "Are you the editor Mr. Gray?" asked a xory sweet, timid voice. , "I am," I replied. "Come' in, please." The girl entered, closed the door, sat down in the chair beside my desk, to which I motioned, and said never a word. I could hear her breath coming quickly, as though she were terribly frightened, audi purpo...
