It is properly asked what is the
use talking about the Democrats in
congress opposing the admission of
Dokota or any other territory as a
state. The Republicans have a major-
ity in both houses and the president
is Republican. That leaves the Repub-
lican party responsible for the legisla-
tion of this session. The Republicans
have the power to pass anything to
t perpetrate any pretense at reform.
The proposed bankrupt law as pre-
' pared by Boston merchants has been
elaborately discussed. The minority
of the senate and it is large seem to
think that no bankrupt act is demand-
d by the people and that none should
be enacted. State laws it is insisted
subserve every necessity of interstate
commerce and the non-interferance of
federalism is more in accord with the
spirit of our institutions.

Reference has been made to the
Dezendorf bill to prevent the inter-
ference of federal officers with elec-
tions. It prohibits all persons hold-
ing government offices or public
trusts from being members of any
political committee from being dele-
gates to party conventions and from
seeking to control the political actions
of their subordinates ; and it further
forbids such officers to take part as
speakers or canvassers in a political
campaign during the hours for which
they are employed by the government
under a penalty of dismissal from
office and ineligibility to reappoint
ment for five years. The bill
would prohibit members of the
cabinet and heads of bureaus
taking part in political campaigns
even to the extent of making speeches
in explanation and defense of their
policy. The measure has its origin in
the ruthless use of federal patronage
by Mahone in Virginia in the late
campaign. Dezendorf is a Repub
lican and because he refused to sup
port Mahone's scheme to reorganize
the politics of Virginia on a Read-
justcr basis was made the object of
that unscrupulous partizan s unspar-
ing hostility supported by the active
ellorts of the administration.
A champion of woman's suffrage
h;ts leen looking up woman's common
law right to vote and finds plenty ot
authority with which to fortify the
position that they should enjoy the
elect i ve franchise. An authority pro-
nounced a former woman's suffrage
bill unconstitutional and declared
that at common law women had no
vote and no political status. A re-
cent explorer of records and Jaw booka
has found that from the time of Wil-
liam the Conqueror the records show
that women not only voted at
English elections but sat as members
and voted in both houses of parlia-
ment; that the house of commons and
the court of king's bench have ex-
pressly decided tnat as a principle ol
law and natural justice women are
entitled to vote on the same terms as
men and that Blackstone writing
soon after the highest British court so
settled the law recognizes this princi
ple by omitting sex from his list ol
common law qualifications for suf
frage. Therefore to put the ballot
lawfully in women's hands it is only
necessary to abolish the custom ot
counting them out of elections and re
pealing a few election statutes.
Proposed civil service legislation
makes the late decision in the Curtis
case especially interesting. This opin-
ion by the chief justice is a plain and
practical analysis of the whole sub
ject. The evils that a system of polit
ical assessments may produce and the
right and power of congress to leg
islate to prevent them are clearly set
forth. The court not only hold such
legislation to be constitutional but
they go farther and commend it. Ali
unde Joe in his dissenting opinion-
takes the one ground upon which all
opposition to this class of legislation
has been based ; that is that it de
prives public officials of that liberty
which other citizens enjoy in the mat
ter of making and receiving contribu
tions for political purposes and is
therefore unconstitutional. The opin-
ion of the court affirms the constitu-
tional power of congress to enact leg
islation to promote efficiency and
maintain discipline in the public ser
vice and also shows that such legisla-
tion does not deprive the official of his
right to contribute money for cam
paign uses. lie can give as much as
he pleases to those not in the public
service but the law protects him from
official tyranny in respect to assess
The investigation of the Keely mo
tor company seems to have been
crowned with success; at least there
is just now a regular boom for the
motor. The investigating expert was
successful and now a 500 horse-power
engine is being constructed which
when completed will be used to de
monstrate the discovery. AVater it
seems in its natural state will te used
asthescurce of the force generated
and by vibrato j action it is disinte-
grated so tha; an expansive gas is
evolved which is the source of the
mechanical power. The definition is
very vague and if mechanical power
can be evolved in this way the prin
ciple may be the foundation of a new
theory of storms and cyclones. So
far the causes that produce them and
the laws that govern them are not
known. If the Keely motor is not
wholly a humbug and the expert has
not "stood in" with the inventor to
make a raid on the stockholders of the
company the scientific world may be
on the eve of a discovery that may
break a good many idols that have
long been worshiped.
Beecher preached a sermon upon
Sabbatarian laws wherein he took the
broadest ground in favor of personal
liberty. Beecher says he is looking
for a religion that will suit everybody
a religion that will be as good for
one man as another a religion that
stripped of its bigotry and supersti
tion will serve to bind humanity in a
bond of universal brotherhood. When
he has found such a creed he will dis-
cover that it has few of the features
of religion as at present understood.
The star route thieves are getting
desperate and will stop at nothing to
embarrass the course of justice and
secure an acquittal It will however
be a cold day when the attorney gene
ral and his assistants get left and the
fires they are accused of kindling will
do little towards warming the sur
rounding atmosphere or making their
condition any more comfortable. One
by one the great organs of public
opinion so-called fall into line on the
siue oi me urauy-ijorsey gang.
Germany is excluding American
pork from her markets The reason
assigned by the government for the
prohibitory policy is the alleged pres
ence of trichina) in the American arti-
cle. A delegate gets up in the reich-
stag and declares that the exclusion
has more to do with protection than
with sanitary considerations. Possi
bly he is correct and it is more cour
teous to attribute thnftinees than
stupidity in the German authorities.
Correspondence between Garfield
and Dorsey is just now toothsome
reading for those who went their all
on the "Christian statesman." We
hav alwavs looked with suspicion on
the social as well as the political affil-
iations of the martyred president and
these things that go to keep up this
suspicion will crowd to the irons lie
was so enlisted in Dorsey's favor that
ho showed him the case as prepared
for the rovernment bv the prosecutor
and thus the star router got bis first
advantage in the trial which was
worth a vast deal to him. Had Dor-
sey been other than his close politi
cal friend or had he been
a Democrat we may reasonably ques
tion whether the President would
have ever given him this advantage.
In such cases the president would
have aided the prosecutor instead of
disabling him by unmasking his
means of attack. There was a love
between these two men that needs ex-
planation but it will never be given
and the country is left to conclude
that had Mr. Garfield lived the star-
route trials would long since have
been thrown out of court through the
powerful influence of the presidency.
The Capital State Fair association
is putting itself on a more solid
foundation than ever before. Its
debts that have been carried at a high
rate of interest have been rearranged
on long time at greatly reduced rates
of interest; and under reorganization
it is lelieved the association is to be
invested with new life. If the people
of Austin will now lend it their aid
and encouragement these annual fairs
will soon be the most noted in the
south. Every preparation is to be
made for a grand occasion next fall.
XoTnixo demonstrates more fully
the power of the people for public
safety than the result of the late elec
tions. Their recuperative powers are
wonderful for it nearly had begun to
appear that the federal power dis-
pensed from Washington through
more than a hundred thousand em-
ployes had made powerless public
complaint. The people arose in their
might and have overthrown the genii
of rapacity and of corruption.
There was a bit of a breeze in the
United States senate the other day in
which Senator Beck rather got the
best of Mahone. The little Virginian
lost his head and showed temper
while the burly Kentuckian preserved
his equanimity and turned the laugh
on him saying he did not intend to
fight and did not think that Mr.
Mahone ought to show any anxiety in
that line until certain affairs had been
settled in Virginia.
J at Gould gives it in testimony
that in his opinion corners in grain do
not hurt the agricultural interests;
and if this be true the alternative is
that they do hurt the consumers
since the speculator cannot be affected.
Since according to his statement the
damage falls upon the consumers and
they are the greater class it is more
than ever the duty of the government
to protect the people against the evil
effects of corners.
Judge Brown of New York de
cided that the mere addition of water
to packages of distilled spirits after
the same have been stamped is not a
fraud against the government al-
though the proof had been reduced.
The suggestion that the stamp must
correspond with the proof of the spir-
its as a means of identification he
held is argumentative only and is not
warranted by law.
The tobacco men are in force at
Washington asking if the tax on to
bacco be repealed or reduced that a
rebate of tax paid on stock on hand at
the time the reduction or abolition
goes into effect shall be adopted.
When the house passed the internal
revenue bill at the last session a clause
providing for a rebate was inserted
with but slight opposition.
Agriculture is still the leading
industry of the United States. From
a census bulletin just published it is
learned that the number of farms in
the country has increased from 1449-
073 in 1850 to 6008007 in 1880. In
1870 New York state headed the list
in number but in 1880 that state
ranks third being surpassed by Illinois
It appears that .the movement
against Gen. Longstreet in Georgia is
the work of certain persons who want
to send a Blaine delegation from that
state in 1884. Gen. Longstreet says
there is no Republican organization
in Georgia and he does not care any-
thing about the men who are attempt
ing to oust him.
It is claimed by good authority
that the patents on electric lighting
processes will not hold water.

"Stop thar parson" said the groom;
"don't say them'uns says thsee'uns!"
"John said the parson "I tech you

These'uns" shouted the groom
drawing his pistol.
The parson seeing the movement
fired through bis surplice and the
groom dropped dead winging the
parson as he went down. Tnere was
a lively fusil ade of perhaps thirty
shots. When the smoke cleared away
a half dozen men were on the floor.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington Dec 19.
To the Editor ot the Statesman :
Commissioner of Agriculture Lorinsr
has returned from St. Lewis where he
addressed a convention oi sorghum
sugar growers. The commissioner's ad
dress embraced the state of the indus-
try at the present day the work of the
department in this direction its con
clusions and those of the committee of
the national accademy of science and
at its close a resolution was enthusi-
astically adopted thanking Dr. Loring
for the sound judgment he had exer-
cised and the judicious course he
has pursued in his investiga-
tions. Dr. Loring has done
a good deal of running about the
country since he came into his office
and the press during the summer
months were tun ot charges that he
was using the government's time to
advance his own financial standing by
lecturing at country iairs ei cetera
for so much per discourse. This may
be partially so. but one thine is certain.
and that is that he is not near so ex
travagant in his ideas of conducting
the agricultural department as his
Lioquacious congressman Itobins-
son or Massachusetts says
that it would be money in Uncle
Sam's pocket to send the entire senate
and house or representatives down
the Mississippi river and let them see
for themselves the magnitude of the
work that must be done there if the
channel of that mighty river is to be
confined and controlled. The infer-
ence is that the job is too big an one
even for this opulent government. lie
may be right ana probably the
schemes for which congress is
asked to make appropriations are
a little reckless but it is a fact
worthy of notice that any bill how
ever reasonable which appropriates a
little filthy lucre for the land looking
towards tne uuii is always ridiculed
and denounced by the gentlemen com-
ing from the states in the vicinity of
the the state from which Robinson
comes. Countless thousands ot dol
lars have been appropriated to Boston
and millions have been given to New
l ork city to nave ileiigate nxed but
any bill which will appropriate money
to improve the harbors of other cities is
promptly attacked by the virtous press
of the two cities named. To date no
new commissioner has been appointed
to fill Major Morgan's place. Mr. John
F. Ohmstead formerly of New York
state has been nominated by Chester
Arthur to fill the seat. It was thought
that "Chefs" nominee (probably in-
spired by the lordly Roscoe) would
rush through the senate like a flash.
But the aged solons in that body
seemed determined to set down on the
reckless style of nominating adopted
by Arthur and spent a large portion
of Monday and Tuesday discuss-
ing the fitness and anetcedents
of the said Olmstead. The selection
of a district of Columbia commis-
sioner is a matter of national concern
and too much care cannot be used in
giving the right man one of the three
seats. Morgan whose time has ex-
pired is police commissioner and gave
general satisfaction for his salary un-
til the recent scandalous developments
in the detective and police depart-
ments of the district lie might not
be guilty of any wrong-doing al-
though he is suspicioned but he is
blamed for the laxity of management
which allowed so many scoundrels
to be among our guardians. Gen.
West may be said to be the boss Com-
missioner. He runs business very much
as he pleases and he has declared his
intention to have a first-class purging
of the District police officers. This
may be to spite Morgan for he and
Morgan are not very fond of each
other and last summer burst into open
eruptions in the newspapers. For the
last week Morgan has been going to
the senate chamber to lobby for him-
self and it was always noticable that
West had pressing business there after

The Government Clock.
d American Register. J
lay Dean noted tor his ex-
traordinary force of intellect and ca-
pacity to tell what he thinks says that
Democratic doctrines taught by
Thomas Jefferson are the only relia-
ble basis of free government and the
Democratic organization is the only
one which has made a direct warfare
upon government monopolies. It
abolished primogeniture entails im-
prisonment for debt property qualifi-
cations for office and for the right of
suffrage. Under Democratic ad-
ministration there has not been
a suppression of a newspaper
never an arbitrary arrest never a sup-
pression of the habeas corpus never
a declaration of martial law but once;
then it was by Gen. Jackson on the
eve of the battle of New Orleans for
which he was fined by Judge Hill
when the general meekly paid nis fine.
Under Democratic rule there was
never a revenue law which established
a system of spies detectives and pub-
lic informers. The federal govern-
ment under a Democratic administra-
tion never chartered a corporation.
Mr. Dean might have gone further
and stated that the pendulum of popu-
lar passion which was thrust violently
towards the utmost point of centrali-
zation and imperialism by hostility to
secessionismnow moves backwards to-
wards Jeffereonian republicanism.
The hands of the clock-work of govern-
ment will soon designate the hour
when the republic of our fathers will
be reproduced; when the people as
contra-distinguished from banks cor
porations and railway matmates. as--1
grandizea oy base uses to which the
government has been subordinated

re-discovered fact that thisgovernment

people and was never designed as a
monstrous piece of involved mechan-
ism employed in wresting more than
four hundred millions of money annu-
ally from popular toil to be absorbed
by place-holders when at the same
time a sum three-fold greater by the
same indirect processes of taxation is

classes. It is time that the clock of

form is needed for everv second-mark

Better Execution of the Laws Needed.
Texas Wool Grower.
The number of murders occurrimr
in the state the deeds of outlawry
committed almost daily demands oi
tue goou citizens a sterner determina-
tion to see that the laws areexecuted ;
to see that criminals are punished.
The very tact that a man carries a six-
shooter should be strong evidence
against him in any crinuual prosecu-
tion. Pick up a morning paper and
look over the telegrams ; sue the ar
ray oi deaths by the six-snooter. then
ass yourself it the reputation ot the
state can be improved while such a
state of things exist. We have lived
in the state more than a quarter of a
century most of the time on the fron
tier and we had hoped that the
day of outlawry and murders had
passed. Xhe killing ot A. W. Lewis
near Pleasanton and of Henry el-
der in Bee county are but two of the
many instances-ox murders that have
occurred lately in this tree country.
Both of these men were cattle men
and both of them were lound deau
murdered by some unknown parties.
We have laoored hard to build up the
stock interests of the state to inspire
conndeuce in the business wnu a
view to bringing foreign capital into
the country anu increase tne wealth
of Texas. We have done an
tnat we could to put down
the carrying of arms. We have
asKed tne governor of the state to use
his power as the chief executive to
stop the nabit of carrying six-shooters
and we will go slid lurther auu
say to our good law-aoiding citizens
that they must do what the law has
tnus far faded to do they must see
tnat the juries of the country are
composed ot only good men men who
will dare do their duty regardless oi
threats or bribes. It is oniy by pun-
tying the jury boxes that we can nope
to rid the iroutier of the state of a set
of reckless men who are injuring the
state by preventing foreign capital

Bless His Bear Heart
In a very elegant palace car entered
a weary-faced poorly dressed woman
with three little children one a babe
in her arms. A look of joy crept into
her face as she settled down into one
of the luxurious chairs but it was
quickly dispelled as she was asked
rudely to "start her boot." A smile ot
amusement was seen on several faces
as the frightened group hurried out to
enter one of the common cars. Upon
one young face however there was a
look which shamed the countenance
of the others. "Auntie" said the boy
to the lady beside him "I am going to
carry my basket of fruit and this box
of sandwiches to the poor woman in
the next car. You are willing of
course T He spoke eagerly but she
answered: "Don't be foolish dear
you may need them yourself
and perhaps the woman is
an impostor." "No I'll not need
them" he answered decidedly but in
a very low tone. "You know I had a
hearty breakfast and don't need a
lunch. The woman looked hungry
auntie and so tired too with those
three little babies clinging to her. I'll
be back in a minute auntie ; I know
mother wouldn't like it if I. didn't
speak a kind word to the least of these
when I meet them." The worldly aunt
brushed a tear from her eye after the
boy left her and said audibly : " J ust
like his dear mother." About five
minutes later as the lady passed. the
mother and the three children she saw
a pretty sight the family feasting as
perhaps they never had done before ;
the dainty sandwiches M'ere eagerly
eaten the fruit basket stood open. The
eldest child with her mouth filled with
bread and butter said: "Was th
pretty boy an angel mama." "No"
answered the mother and a grateful
look brightened her faded eyes; "but
he is doing angels' work bless his dear
heartl" And we too said "Bless bis
The corn crop this year is estimated
at 1680000000 bushels against 1194.-
916000 bushels in 1881. The latest es-
timate of the wheat crop of the season
of 1882 is 500000000 bushels as against
380280000 in 1881. The value of do-
mestic exports for the fiscal year ended
June 30 1882 $733239732 against
$882925947 during 1881; a falling off
of $150686215. This is due almost
entirely to the failure of the crops
of the country during the season of
1881 a result attributable to
the drought and other unfavorable
meteorological influences which pre-
vailed so extensively throughout the
country during that season. The im-
ports during the fiscal year were $724-
639574 larger than during any pre-
vious year in the history of the coun-
tro. The number of tons transported
on the fifteen leading railroads of the
United States the last fiscal year was
96663160 as against 84.199344 tons
during the preceding fiscal year. The
railroad mileage of the United States
January L 1882 was 10413 miles.

THE FUTURE LIFE.
A Catholic Priest on In ger soil's
No one who has ever heard Inger-
sou lecture wm oeny mat he is a rare
orator. 111s word-painting is wonder
ful his eloquence entrancing. Thus
far in his crusade against Christi-
anity this skeptic has appeared in the
eyes of his followers a giant against
pigmies xie nas encountered an ad-
versary however seemingly in everv
way his equal even in his own pecu-
liarities of rhetoric to judge from the
toiiowing extract irom a sermon de
livered on last Sunday on the occa
sion of the dedication of the Church
of the Annunciation at Kansas City
Mo. by Rev. Father David S. Phelan
well known as the editor of the West-
ern Watchman. Having asserted that
"the idea of the soul and the faith in
its immortality must have come down
from above as earth could not have
taught it nor could death have in-
spired it" the reverend father said :
"If there is no hereafter then life is
one long debauch and the highest ed-
ucation is to know how to find and
how best to enjoy pleasure. If there
is no hereafter virtue is a deceit and
heroism is a lie. See that young man
bleeding from a hundred wounds. He
died in defense of a sister's honor. If
there is no hereafter that noblest of
deeds will go forever unrewarded. See
that young sister in the hospital bend-
ing over a victim of the plague; toi
morrow she will succumb and a rapid
ride and a hasty sepulture will reward
her devotion. If there is no hereafter
her charity met a sorry requital. See
that man holding an affrighted child
at the window of a burning building.
He holds it long enough for a sturdy
companion to grasp it from below and
then he falls back into his fiery tomb.
If there is no hereafter such sacrifice
is heartless and unmeaning cruelty. See
that troop of soldiers marching by to
has called and they go to defend her
honor on the battle-field. They follow I
that flag into the thick of
the fight and when the bua-le
sounds the retreat few return
from the carnage. Those brave
soldiers died with their face to the
foe and a smile was stamped on their
features in death. If there is no here-
after their heroism was suicide and
their courage a mockery of fate.
Early life is closed in death; the grave
terminates all consort and association
with things of time; but wafted above
the bier the wreck the tomb floats
the sweet voice of God saying: "I am
Contrast the above with the follow-
ing from one of CoL Ingersoll's lec-
tures and beatiful and tender as is
the language of the Infidel orator
that of I ather Phelan loses nothing by
"Next to eternal joy; next to being
forever with those we love and those
who have loved us; next to that is to
be wrapped in the dream-like drapery
of eternal death. Upon the shadowy
shore of death the sea of trouble casts
no wave. Even that have been cur-
tained by the everlasting dark will
never know again the touch of tears.
Lips that have been touched by the
eternsd silence will never utter another
word of grief. Hearts of dust do not
break. The dead do not weep."
The Kansas City Journal publish-
ing the sermon says that its subject
matter was only equaled by the grace
and charm ot its delivery. It is
hardly likely that Mr. Ingersoll will
attempt to ridicule this Catholic priest
as he has so many assumed defenders
of the Christian faith. Father Phelan
is apparently a very different adver-
sary from some of the pulpit mounte-
banks Mr. Ingersoll has encountered
whose driveling sentiment and limp-
ing logic do more to injure the cause
of religion than even Mr. Ingersoll's
insidious arts and eloquent periods.
Father Phelan is master of the
weapons Mr. Ingersoll uses and the
infidel orator must eat porridge from
his own dish in an encounter with
this knight of the Cross.
Anti-Corset Philosophy and History
One poison is no rule for another in
such matters. The letters in the Eng-
lish Mechanic and a little book full of
others selected from a now extinct
periodical which I met with about ten
years ago called Figure Training and
others subsequently in the same ma-
gazine amply prove that. The great
majority of the writers I may say
all who wrote from their own experi-
ence said they had found the tightest
lacing they could bear especially in
stays quite stiff in front both pleasant
and beneficial and among them was
a surgeon. Some however find it
expedient to remain under contraction
only a few hours in the morning and
the surgeon discarded his stays when
taking strong exercise which seems
natural; but others lace tightly for ri-
ding and ladies mostly in tne evening
and some enjoy and recommend con-
finement in stays all night also an
old practice which used to be enforced
in some families and schools. Men
generally prefer belts but not a few
wrote that they found regular long
and stiff stays much nicer and better
for their health. Two or three
said they could stand and walk
much longer in them than with-
out and that their health re-
lapsed whenever they gave it up.
Many had begun it under some kind
of compulsion but had soon come to
like it even after severe treatment at
first. As I said before the philoso
phers got much the worst oi it in
My philosophy about it is that all those
statements of personal experience.
with their variations in detad are
worth mhnitely more tor practical
purposes than all the talk about lungs
and diaphragms and capacity of chests
(which vary a great deal naturally)
nature and anatomy. Greek women in
flesh and marble and the unquestioned
bad effect of unduly tight lacing
wmcn proves notning out itseil.
Such a multitude of persons of all
ages and kinds cannot possibly be
either mistaken or lying about the fact
of their own good health or that of
their children pupils school-fellows
sisters mothers and friends notwith-
standing or in consequence of their
having been contracted inthe smallest
circumference they could bear for
many years of their lives. It is verv
easy to be mistaken in attributing
eitner goon or oao neaitn to a particu-
lar cause but the fact of it cannot be
doubttuL And that with sundry
medical letters such as I have alluded
to is the summary of all those letters
containing any personal experience.
There were one or two about ladies
who had obstinately persisted in the
iaceoi manliest warnings tnat they
were injuring their health and of
course did so.
I remember reading years ago. in an
extract from some medical newspaper.
I think that the Empress of Austria
was Killing herselt with tight-lacing
for she happened to be ill and was
famous tor the smallness of her waist
which seems to be specially culti-
vated there and is even enforced on
boys as well as girls according to a
gentleman who was at school in
Vienna and learned there to enjoy
being laced as tight as possible in
long and stiff stays though he was
very angry at it at first as was the
case with many others of the above
mentioned writers. Well she is now
a grandmother and we are told every
year that she is still conspicuous in
our hunting fields for her riding and
her figure. In one of those letters an
old English lady of eighty-five
said that she used to be contracted
into fifteen inches when she was
young and indeed the compass
of their own span or from fourteen
to fifteen inches was often spoken
of up to about forty years ago from
very early times as the standard to
be aimed at by ladies and frequently
reached and occasionally even thir-
teen but more in foreign countries
than this though there was one; con-
fession of it in the book on figure-
training. Of course I am not advo-
cating those extreme and foolish and
dangerous reductions but only using
the fact that ladies lived long and in
good health under them to prove the
monstrous exaggerations about the
danger of waists which contain twice
as much as those l ou at any rate
will see at once that a waist of twenty
inches contains twice as much as one
of fourteen and eighteen nearly half
as much again as fif teen.
I cannot imagine what books Lady
F. Harberton has been reading or not
reading to write such an amazing
thing as that twenty-eight inches is
the proper size for a woman's waist
when it is a full size for a well-made
it is just worth notice on the reit
erated assertions about Greek laxity
that the term "wasp-waisted" in sev-
eral forms is as old as AristoDhanes.
And it is certain that the Romans se
verely laced and . shoulder-straDDed
their girls and even starved them if
necessary to mane them slender and
upright. "Suvenca? et graciles
et sic amantur. i errence savs :
and Maccauley. who had read
everything said that the Ro
man ladies did still worse things to
preserve their forms. Whatever are
the reasons for it. it isouite clear from
history that corsets and tight lacing
in one form or another have been the
windmills of dress reforming Quixotes
for 1000 years at least. The wind has
sometimes lulled and they had flat-
tered themselves that they had stopped
the sails ; but it has always risen
again and knocked over the nhiloso-
phers " clerical medical and general"
and probably always will; bo they
may as well save their preaching for
something more amenable or at any
rate preach more rationally than they

would doubtless prove very effective
