Onondaga Independent EVERY SATURDAY A Turkish Vlow o f Divorce. The. Turkish minister at Washing ton, who, b y the way, i s a great favor- —ite jvith the society ladies there, has confided to some _of tbein his painf nl - regrets at the prevalence of divorce in America, and there is reason t o believe that be attributes it i n great measure to the fuct that the Americans d o no t •ofeas the true faith There ca n be' n o .; ib t that from bis point of view-, if -Juubiimmedaniem wero made the~\state religion of bis country, divorces would cease. Tbnt seems s o obvious that it is useless to argue it. But it seems that some of the society women i n Washing ton twitted the embassador o n the Turkish harem, whereupon that distin guished diplomat gravely informed them that the Turkish harem exists in his country in just about the samo degree as Mormouistn exists in the United States. And this is a fact that is not generally known outside of Tor- key. The harem is a state privilege, like the lord mayor's show in London. It is frowned upon everywhere by th e best Turkish society. What is perhaps still more cnricus and not a whit less true is that polygamy in Turkey is be ing killed slowly but suroly b y th o In fluence of womun herself. This is the testimony of the very best writers on 'that country Tbo only question that remains to bo answered is, Will no t di vorce increase as polygumy disappears? A great and needed female reform has been started b y a bravo woman in Boston. Its purpose is t o provide wom en with pockets. Having studied tb o subject, sbe has come to the conclusion that civilization will bo advanced ma terially and woman will tuku her Btund properly by mun's sido a s hia equal if she can only bavo pockots iu he r dross to put her bands and otbor things into. A tailor made woman ha s suffered for tbo want of this luxury for years, and she bus put up with it because tbe tailor told be r i t was a necessity It goes without saying that a woman would not put be r money in a book for eufo keepingjind^theuforget which book sh e ptft ft i n if Bho had a pockot. Nor would she put ber chub g o iu her la p u t a lunch counter und spill i t all over when she gets up, making a dozen, people crawl under Douches and counters -to recover it. Man would undoubtedly have a larger appreciation of woman if sh e ba d pockets, and, now that sh e bu s gono ou t into tho world and demands a night key, it i s very absurd t o seo ho r diving into a reticule among cream, caramols. chewing gum, visiting cards, face pow der, chocolate eclairs and matineo tick ets t o find it One thirg is suro—she could not leavo her pockots in th o seat or i n tbe car and ask somobody t o go back and get them. Captain Boynton, a young man of San Francisco who started out t o walk as nearly round tbe world a s the ocean would permit, i s o n bi s return.. His ex periences ought to b e very stimulating to other young men. His bet was that be would shin round th o planet without borrowing any money and live entirely -on hospitality. His record of tbe latter is very interesting. He was fired on by Ute Indians, starved for two days an d a half without food or water in the American desert, was found in a dead faint by a hospitable Mexican, was nearly killed by a railroad accident while going through a tunnel on foot, was poisoned in Spain, was stabbed in Portugal, was arrested as an American epy i n Germany, was married t o a Scotch girl he ba\d never seen before i n Glasgow, was publicly stoned u t Mur- bella, was cut witb a knife in Colon and arrested b y tbe police, and was impris oned in Valencia. But h o won bis bet, whatever it was. Some years ago a party of practicni jokers set a couple of darkies to work whitewashing tho city hall i n New York, and it took a squad of policemen to stop them. But this practical joke isn't in it with the contractor who, in painting tho ironwork of the new Washington bridge over the Harlem river, also painted all the fine bronze medallions black. It will now cost $1,; 800 t o ecour the paint off. This is a joke On New York that New York has said very little about, and perhaps the less said about i t the better. The-British income tax was first im posed by Sir Robert Peel i n 1841, when it was fixed at fivepence in the pound. Four thousand pounds of dates'have been gathered from a single palm. 1i Princeton Pessimistic? Professor Wilson of Princeton ha s brought upon himself a good deal of criticism for telling the students that there is no 'party leadership except th e machine, and by-warning them agaiuat entering political life if tbey have not an independent living, becauso th o temptation to become corrupt is' too great for most men who ar o dependent. Such extraordinary advice'proceeding from an American seat of learning has called forth from Noah Davis and oth ers a storm of protest. If security from corruption in public life ca n only bo found in wealth, then, says Noah Da vis, \God save our country,\and that sefftiment will find an echo ia every honest American, whether h e be rich or poor, who has read tbe history of his country. Much as the rich man ha s done for America'—and ho is undoubt edly doing a great deal at present—tho greatest glory of our statesmanship has been, no t only that its most illustrious men were poor when they went into public life, but were poorer when they came out . It certainly does not appear to bo th o duty of those professors who have charge of tbo coining «ien of America to instill into their minds both a contempt for and a fear of public lifo becauee i t offers temptations. If our. colleges cannot make our young men braver, inoro self sacrificing and willing to give up somo'thing for tho sako of their conntry, then they ar o not doing tho work for which so many of them aro endowed. What wo especially need at this time is a class of young men who will bring clean natures and strong, honest intentions into public lifo, who cannot bo bought or frightoned o r ca joled, and it ought to bo one of th o chief duties of our colleges t o form jnst such kind of character for th o country Professor Wilson's remarks botray a fiabbiness that does him n o credit. He appears t o have advised the young men solely with a view to thoir personal comfort. They wero to keep out of UK way of temptation. They might indeed learn t o swim, but in doing so i t wan altogether advisable no t t o go near tb e water A cat and dog cemotery has really been opened by a stock company at Cox sackio for tb o burial of po t animals Tho place is to bo laid out i n plots, an d tho graves aro t o bo ornamented with headstones. I t is very difficult to treat this subject seriously, for it i s difficult to understand bow fa r mcro sentiment can bo carried i n this direction. T o mourn over th o loss of* pet animals is natural enough, but t o attompt to com- memornto their virtues in tablets iu quite another matter. It is just possible that thero is a growing feeling among men that animals obaro witb tbom the prospects of an immortal existence. The question of instinct a s opposed to rea son has of late years been seriously questioned by tb o sontimentallsts, an d any attempt t o endow animals with the same reason that man possesses, differ ing only in degree, no doubt leads to new attempts to honor tb o pets with tho samo memorials that w o erect over men. But there will always remain in tbe minds of robust persons a fooling cl contempt for effusive sorrow over un animal, which sorrow is often' made ridiculous by tho honors which are paid \ to tho carcass of tho animal. • I Good Storlen of a DUhop. Many anecdotes were told of Bishop Williams of Connecticut, after bi s death, for tbe good bishop was a s well known for bis love of fun as for bis 'earnest piety. At a meeting of the bishops a IPPXS uro was proposed and explained by it s orginator,_bnt_ with such incpherence that nobody understood it. A second speaker essayed to make tbe matter clear, but only darkened it. When lie had finished Bishop Benjamin Smith of Kentncky tried to explain tbe question and also the explanations. Feeling that be ba d failed, be fluid \Bishop Williams smiles. What has ha t o say about it?'- \Only this,\ said tbe old bishop, \that 'the mess of Benjamin wa s found to be greater than the HJCSB of any of his brethren.' \ \The humor of Dr. Williams,\ says a friend, \was always present and ready like tbe flash of snnlight. It ba d one peculiarity, it never scorched nor left a scar behind.\ At an assemblage of noted men , a lawyer wbo conducts the legal business of a great railway system tried to \goy tho pur HOD\ by malicious quizzing. At last he said \Why don't you get these railway managers to give yon a pass over thoir roads, bishop? You can pay for it by giving tbom entrance tickets into heaven.\ \Oh. n o I \ gently replied the bishop- \I would not part them so far from their counsel in tlio other world.\ Tbe laugh wos general, and tbo law - per concluded to \le t tbe parson alone.' —Youth's Companion N.
