r-' Y'i Public Influence of American Wo- men. ' Women in the United States may within a few years find the ballot and the.political sphere add- ed to their present range of duties. But whether the' participate di- rectly in politics" or not it ought to be perfectly evident that social and political influence is every- where measured by intelligence attention sympathy and character. It happens that American women have more time to read think and concern themselves about the edu cation of children and the best welfare of the neighborhood in which they live than American men; and as an inevitable conse- quence the American women are entering into a constantly increas- ing exercise of dominant influence. It is altogether possible that the American women unlike their sis- ters in England may come to the conclusion that they can accom- plish quite as much for the welfare of society and the salvation of the state without the ballot as with it. But let us add it is as certain as anything th...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. While every citizen should be keenly alive to the best inter- ests of his country and to intelli- gently cast his ballot should in- form himself on the current issues of the day many men allow their political zeal to get away with their common sense. The American more than any other man feels that on his shoulders rests the re- sponsibility wf carrying the gov- ernment antr a great many of these citizens feel that nothing else is expected of them in this world than to carrv this load. It is somewhat strange how easi- ly a man may graduate in the school of politics. All admit that the science of good government is a most difficult study yet men who can scarcely read and seldom do read anything but one news- paper can tell all about the only way to run a government. It takes a course of study close every-day study under competent instructors for six. eight or ten years to make a man a mathemati- cian a linguist or an expert in any of the sciences and even then he conf...

Balloon Voyace to the Pole. A Chicago special says: Solomon August Andree a civil engineer of Stockholm and Prof. Nils Ekholm who occupies the chair of philoso- phy in the University of Upsola will undertake a journey to the North Pole in July next. Edward Tallin of Stockholm who is now in Chicago for the purpose: of es- tablishing a manufactory for chem- icals told all about the scheme last night. He is interested in the matter. Andree's balloon is an invention of his own which he has been using for.years in trips about the far North seas. These trips of the inventor have proved that Mr. An- dree can steer his balloon in any direction he chooses and has made him determine upon the expedi- tion to the North Pole. The up- per part of the invention is like an ordinary balloon and dependent to this is the car. From either side of the latter are the wings which serve to shape its course and Mr. Andree also has an ar- rangement like a sail which has a similar purpose. By means of cocoanu...

Voorhees on Silver Indianapolis Ind. April 29. Senator Voorhees in a talk to-day with a Sentinel reporter made this statement in regard to his views of the free coinage of nilver "I do not regret the agitation of the silver question. Sooner or later it has to be definitely settled whether the laboring producing people of this country can be bul- lied out of one-half of their debt paying money or whether they will stand up like free men and protect and defend the money named and provided in the consti- tution gold and silver both not. one of the precious metals alone but both and on terms and" condi- tions as to coinage and use 6T ab- solute equality. This is the ques- tion immediately before us and no other time than now willl'ever be found for its settlement. J "The tariff will not return to plague us again for years to come. It has been so wisely and equita bly adjusted that no attempt at a; general revision is now in contem- plation in any quarter. .There is no longer any issue i...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. 1 hpard an old lady sa a few days since that there had been in her life-time wonderful changes in the religious advantages and op portunities of young people. It was an a young people's meeting and she referred especially to the prog xess made by the young Christian people of the land. And to think of it there is a religious enthusi- asm among the young people of the land that will have a great sig nificance in shaping the future his tory of our country. If the growth of religious fervor continues to keep pace with the progress of the past few years it will be little less than marvelous. Think of the 3000 ardent wide-awake pro gressive Epworth Leaguers recent ly gathered at Houston the. great- est religious gathering ever held in Texas the reverberations from which will be heard for years throughout all Texas! Then look at the preparations being made at Jbort Worth for a like number of Christian Endeavorers! There is no wonder that thq secular press everywhere is as...

PRESLER ATBRENHAM. An extract from his Malfast Speech. "In the past we have been agri- culture people but in the future we must develop and foster our manufacturing mining and com- mercial interests as well. No peo- ple who confine themselves to the production of raw materials to be manufactured elsewhere can ever reach the highest degree ot pros- perity. We must make something of our country besides 'a cotton patch and cow pen.' Nature has done all for us that she can do. She has given us a country that in point of climate fertility of soil and natural resources is unriv- alled on the globe but the balance we must do for ourselves; we must work and bring to light the treas- ures of our hidden wealth. The condition under which we live economic industrial and commer- cial are largely within our own control and remedies for existing evils are with us. So long as we bend all of our energies to produce millions tf bales of cotton when the price is already below the coBt of production an...

Poor fellow he loved himself to death. He must hold his office at whatever cost. He sacrificed the Son of God for the sake of holding his office. That same characterist- ic hasn't abandoned this world yet. What was congress trying to do this last year? Nothing but trying to hold office.

; 1 RANDOM THOUGHTS. If there is any class of liaen who deserve the kind treatment of the public more than any other class it is the drummers. I always fee like raising my hat to these' men wherever I meet them. Drummers are generally misunderstood. The idea generally exists that they are a tough class. There are some tough drummers and the life they lead does not have much influence on them for good they are brought mostly in contact with tough sur- roundings but I do not believe you will find a more gentlemanly class of men anywhere. A hotel office now-a-days is mostly filled with these travelling salesmen the cars are full of them the depots are generally thronged with them in travelling one is thrown in con stant contact with them ana yet they are nearly always polite and gentlemanly. Profanity and ob scenity is seldom heard and jolly good humor nearly always pre vails. ihe drummer's life is a hard one but one of the hardest things with which he deals is the dis- courtesy shown ...

Tha Tenderfoot and the Burro Aii amusing incident concerning how burros are guided occurred sometime ago when a "tenderfoot'g from the East was induced to mount an animal noted for his un ruliness. The stranger had never seen a bnrro before and supposed he could ride the insignificant looking "sheep" a little larger than a Newfoundland dog with ease; The burro's grotesque ap pearance was heightened by the addition of a Mexican saddle This curious attachment was made of two wooden crotches that looked like wishbones and were fastened on each side by cross-bars at the lower extremities. The whole was then covered with rawhide which had been stretched over the sticks when green and allowed to dry The shrinkage made it perfectly solid. Instead of a blanket sheepskin was thrown over the ourro's DacK lor the saddle to rest upon. The "tenderfoot" clambered up on the strange-looking craft when to his astonishment and alarm the ' tricky animal started off at a live- ly pace with his head dow...
