*1 tfa ^Toledo you roniclr. WARREN HAKMAN Editor and Publisher A. Z~ W Toledo, Iowa, Thursday, April 8« IS 7:t. Lecture by Rev. W. -a 8. Mess* wfo IfMt Sunday evening ih* Pres byterian Church was crowded to Us utmost capacity, to hear the lecture (previously announced) of Rev. W. W. M«*Mner, which had been prepar ed expressly for tho ladies of his congregation, ami which pertained to the question of an enlarged sphere tor woman. Below we present the lecture in full, behoving that we will receive the thanks therefor of tli^ many who admire both the style and lUe genius of the speaker. At tar a few preparatory remarks, in Which he stated that he had nothing Mnsatioual to offer, the speaker said The peculiar glory ef the Aineri Ctn pulpit, as conceded to us by in telligent English writers, is the per fect Ireedom of its thought and speech. This is wis* and just, be siusii perfect freedom is the very best guarantee against abuse ot priv ilege. The American pulpit staruln At the head ot our responsible educu tionnl agencies, ior the instruction ol the adult mind ot this nation. To it, therefore, should be ascordod the broadest freedom of expressed opiu ion upou all the important practical questions ot the day, particularly up oil thote moral and social problem* Ml the solution of which is so deeply involved the weliare ol the family, the growth ot the Church, and the development ot the nation. Among these social pi obletns having a decid ed bearing upon the moral issues ot the time, wu recognize that, which in popular language is now called the Woman Question. Ot this question, ta some of its relations, «t least, we propose to spealc, with the freedom, which ol light, belongs to oui Oflijo and to our day. Whatever views, liberal or prejudiced may be held concerning this question, howey •r adverse the o]4nions maintained an to woman's true sphere, or her just lig'us. This much in certain. Th problem ot her rights aud of her mission I as been squ^r.ly prop. a ijjjc thoughtful iniuds ot this genera tion, aud we cannot ignore it if we would. This is not the age in which atari ling propositions can be thrust aside by dogmatic refusals to enter tain them, nor perplexing problem* Mk-ercd out of a demonstration by cftwardly unwillingness to honestly consider them. No intelligent Mil d«nt of Old or New Testament hi* torv, but must acknowledge thai the ll«b rew and Christian churches w en alike largely indebted to the women ot those times tor the glory of the «BC, and the success ot the ether. Are we to (expect toss from ike wo men of to diy I have 110 stakes to set, no lineB to draw, by which to bound the sphere of woman. Those bounds Almighty God has already set in the capacities, and instincts ot h«r being. I have 110 declaration to make of her just rights—the all wise God has established these in consti toting her utnatihood— the perfect complement, tho co-equal helpme et ot manhood. If woman was depos ed from this equality, by the degru dation in tin fall, must not the re demption and elevation ot th« race restore to her the primeval equality and privilege Is not this result be ing slowly yet Barely wrought out through the hot tears and «.*amesi prayers, the barning words and the loving labors of a tried host ot tiu» men and women of our time, and in oar land And does not the index finger of progress point to tho hour on Uredml not yet fully come, but just withiu the shadow in which the ancient wrong shall be made right And if that very hour is at your threshold, women of Toledo, are you prepared to answer the larger de man lis of that new life, which your op«niug responsibilities will brii.g you. This is the question which 1 ask yon to help me consider tlr.s eve ning. I know I cannot properly present it, because, firtt, I have not exhaustively considered the subject from all its possible points because necond, the subject U too many sided tor mo to vi«w it from all its pre sentments because, third, I cannot possibly obtain a panoramic view ot it, not being woman. Nevertheless 1 have thought upon this subject un til I have stood in very awe of its magnitude, in conscious fear of inv inability to compreheud the length aud breadth, aud depth and height. I Lave considered the relation ot wo man to lira world, and particularly his problem ot her enlarged useful tiess. until I have seen it interpene tratimr all our life, and silently work ing in its very foun lation I have seen it radiating from the subtle centre of her home influence, to the very circumference of life, touching the outposts ot truth, and skirting the vety horizon ol thought And hen I have grown sad for very shame of womanhood, to Ihink bow very few, even among women, study clear ly to understand her true relations to the world—her true mission in the world and 1 have been astounded that so many women among the ad vocatcs ot greater liberty for woman have apparently no clear conceptions of what (hat liberty is, or how it is to be aecuted of what woman's mission i«, or how it is4o be inaujur atrd. W* are thus necessarily cum polled to oonsider this question ax womatCt work—not what it shall be in the future,, b'ut woman's *o k, what It is uow, preparatory to that future, iu which so raach is expccted. Your first work is clearly to understand your present position. You must know your present relation!*, and how MO j**|ar«4 *0 laataio them the present demands made upon yoQi and how you are fitted to meet them, before yoa can intelligently consider the la" ger liberty, and the growing demands ot the future. Among these relations I particularise, kikst, your relation to-day with the world of to-day, as that ot its primal teacher. This is almost exclusively your relation. In tl.is bu*y, uervous hurrying licpublic there are very few nursing fathers. With all due allow ance tor the precocity of Young America, l»o is at ten or twelve years ot age, in ninety nine cases out ol a hundred just what mother makes him, or what mother's criu. inal ignorance or carelessness has let others make hun This is in effect to say that tor ab«at one third tl e lite of an ordinary gen eration, you sustain the relation ot model, guide and character-former to that generation, aril this just at tiie tune when the whole being is most susceptible to impressions, most easi ly moulded. Is it a reasonable sup position, that influences like these, working in the very sub stratum ot the child's nature, are to drop out ot the lite, like untimely figs shaken by the east wind, whenever some other influence breathes upon it As the mountain stream collects its tributa ries, and, swelling its volume to a river, rolls away to the ocean so this streun of child lite, issuing from the homo spring, gathers in Us self selected tributaries, deepening aud broadening its channel, till the full current ot manhood or womanhood rolls its living tide into the great deep of human activities, its waters just what issued from the lionv spring, and what were sell-selected through tho taste there cultivated. Exceptions there are they would only prove the rule I have eiven you. Maternal viyi'ance is the price of humanity's freedom from the malign influences of earth, during the firstyeat a ot its young lite. At your hands, women ot to-day, as growing out ot this relation is demanded knowledge as the basis ot your 111 structions. and wisdom, to convey and illustrate this knowledge Are )ou, who «u before me to night, pre pared lor this work Are you even educated up to your advautagea? Have you drawn kuowU-dge to youi ell from all available sources, ace.ord ing to your opportunities? Have y mi gathered inioruvilion on the iglil hand, aud wisdom on the left, in ah piac'H where you hau had titn-riy to gather, until yuu are fully liu« to train lh-young genera ions miring the most cr.ileal thiid ot tln ir lives, as you ought to train them—as they need to he trained? I would it wer, in your powtr to answer y«-s but I verily believe that the world is stiff ering to-day for the want ot a more liberally educated motherhood. That the boys ami girls of 10 day need the cords ot a stronger inielb ciu tl 1111 leniity to bind th in upon the alisr Of home reVeri'iice su'd alt t'"ii.N'»i in my opinion is this just *y ciiaigab'e upou lack of e-lui-atioiial advantages. It is true that the larger tree loin of thorough university euhuie, and ol a special proSesston il training is lint jnnow ushered in, an I that its ben etits were not yours in this *ant 1 heartily sympathize with you. Hut to you, younger wives and mothers, the classes of our graded schools and many ot our college* have beei open 1. The old table in tin* hum room has been covered th«*s« years with the newspapers ami periodicals of the day and troin these avenue* of knowledge is heard a v«ie.e tor bidding the cry of no opportunities, for those already possessed aie more than have been unproved. By ne glecting this, you have lost the longest, most tenacious hold up yout boys and girls that could pos sibly bind them to home when your uhild'en learn that they know more than mother in one direction, they soon infer that they know more than mother in other direction*. There is no depar mnt of knowledge in which children are instructed during the first VI or 14 years of their lite that you can afford to be ignorant ot. Your sympathies must be as broad as childhood's wants, and your know ledge must therefore be as lar-ieadi ing as childhood's studies durii.g these years, he they heart studies or head studies. This knowledge of books, this acquaintance with school work, the class Mudies of your chil dren is the work ot your girlhood. The other is the ingathering of the experience ot your womanhood. To prepare your girls tor womanhood they must be instructed through your knowledge, or through the humilia lion ot their own suffering. Such knowledge is indispensible to intelli gent niotheihooil. It is a tina qua non to abiding home influence. Ju»t to indicate some ot your work. There are the laws ot health, by observing which, the physical constitutions ot children are to bu preserved, streng thened and developed. By intelli gently understanding this, you ex plain to their inquisitivenesa the rea sons ot your requirements, with this two told result. They are educated and made intelligently obedient. Are you perfectly conversant with these laws? Children are not like so many peas, mostly alike. O.i the oontraiy they are mostly unlike. Tney have different constitutions, and require different treatment as to diet, cloth ing, exercise and rest. Do vou un dersiand ail abut this* There is also a difference in the menial pow ersof your little ones and thentheun likeness of their affectional natures. Each different intelligence or dispo sition ivqnires its special treatment. Who can possibly understand thesii differences as well as mothers? Who ought to understand them as we'l And if she do s not, w ijo is likely to supply her lack of knowledge? Are you lamiiiar with all these phases ol ehild life Are you un rstanduigly •w ire that the whole health ot the world, body, and brain, ami heart health is in your keeping How are }OU meeting these demands? L--c your womanly conscience answer. 1 would they do not cmid inn y- u. though I tear t'wjr went #au«r yoa But all of yoa arc not married—per haps some of you never will be, and you may be sayiug—'All very well but this does not concern me." Yes, but what if it does concern you: First—because woman's intelligent training must be in the light ot these facts just considered, and with an enlighteued recognition ot their ex istence and importance, lor—Second —the proper training ot one woman facilitates the proper training ot all other womeu, as it creates a desire tor like training in others, and exerts an educational mfluence upou them. Third—True culture is many-sided- is omnigenous, is cosmopolitical, il embraces all kinds consequently, no true woman can be considered prop erly educated, while ignorant ot that which is au educatioual necessity ot her sex. II. I notice your relations of to day with the world'ot to day, as the loundation and corner-stone ot her ue society. You give the civilized world her social laws you regulate her social intercourse you mould her 8oe»al lite you open, or you closo at will her social gates. What you shut no miin can open, and what you open no inau can shut. To properly sustain such relationship, demands a knowledge of the lundauieiital priu cipies upou which socety is estab lisiied—ot 1 he constitution of the particular society in wIiajIi you move and which you govern ot the caus es thai vitiate and dismember socie ty ot the remedies lor all social ami last, but greatest, a true wouiauty tact, muted with Spartan th inness, to enforce these established laws, and apply these needed reme dies. Soeieiy is extrinsic and intrin sic. As at present constituted it is composed in its exterior, ot inun and women, who wear olothes, whw are charitably accredited with tho possession ot a modieuui ot brains, and are supposed to be decently re spectable. That society requires no higher qualifications than these, that Iter standards are degraded to this l«vel is not woman's misfortune, but her laiiit. Thai even men who tall below such pitiable standards are coidially welcomed by the lead and queens ol society, is woman s un pardonable siu against her own wo manliness, aud against the purity of her household. Here is work for woman to-day—everywhere, how to raise the standard ot admission into soon-iy and you must tirsi prove your c'eansiug power here where you are all powi rful, betorc the sceptics and unbelievers in your powers and equality, will willingly commit the purification ol the polit ical cess-pooi to your cleaning. In the larger litu tor which yo"U are struggling, there will be a breadth ol contact with all outside pollutions as yet memlully unknown to yt'U and the moral virtue to brand vice as vije, though clothed in uurple and tine linen, needs to be cultivated in your present contracted sphere, be lore you can possibly have courage 10 p/actice il in ti e enlarged world nt'yuur future hopes. It woman, ab solute monarch ot tho social realm, cannot or will not purge her recep tion ruoius from the contaminating presence ot the libertines and the debauchees it she lacks purity ol soul to leel repugnance to vice, or moaul firmness to declare it it she continue to recognize the viciou, even in the sanctuary ol her own home, before her household gods, bow can she ver become the salt ot a socially tainted world, the enemy of all impurity, regardless of sex or condition, and the rescuing angel ot tier fallen sisterhood But society is also intrinsic. It bar. a soul as well us a body. at present constitut ed, society is genwially an internal battle-ground for the bitterest pas sions II ik a tournament at which pride and vanity me« in silken lists, with smilinL' sneeis tor spears, and coals ot selfishness tor mail. It is a parody upon humanity—a comedy to some, a tragedy to ethers, and to Bteriii." sense, broad farce in reality. I speak of so-called society.«n msisg* Then- are, here »nd lliere, to the glo ry and praise ot li'US womanhood little social cliques, that haye revo lutionized the whole course of gen oral soc cty. These little circles have been tuned up to the highest pilch ot cultivated excellence. Their lnws harmonized obedience to the highest womanly in-thiols. Their standard*, the purity ot Christian wo manliness the fraternal ui.selfihuess ot a true christian manhood the christian politeness that esteems oth ers precedent to self. Their ambi tion, the highest iutelleo ual and mor al cullure. Their grace, womanly refinement. Their glory, to adorn society with the living beauty of wo manly perteciiiess, and breathe de«ire into the heart ot universal woman hood lor a share 111 the honor ot la bor such as theirs. The air ot such society is purity, is peaci its pres ence biealhes a bonedic'/ion upou the fevered senses of ambitious man hood, as grateful as cooling night dews, or dro( ping showers to sun scorched flowers, n summer sultri iksb. Here is glorious work. To reconstruct society after these per ftct models. To gather to your aid all the help the age affords and your opportunities allow, thai you may be thoroughly furnished to this good work. Here is work. To grow wise and true, and tender, and selMoriret iiug, aud pure, aid earnest—ill short to et true man's worthiest ideals of true woman, and give society, whose realm you govern, whose qwiM'ii you are, the noble standard of your pure life the healthy inspira tion ot your womanly presence. I know that to accomplish this you will need the m«mt thorough culture, llie most liberal training, the most noble incentives, the heartiest syinpa thies Hue manhood will cheerfully accord lh»*se but I also know that this generation holds no thing ot knowledge, of wisdom, of cultuie of ancient tradition, or of present science, that it closed to the woman who wiH dtnuv' !,* Jj J, unhesitatingly appropriate these, and take, and eat, and live, and grow thereby. 1 glery in such women aud their unyielding determination tr know. I would gladly sit at their feet and learn, for they are the apos tleB of the new gospel ot knowledge, in which there iB neither male nor fe male. They are hastenting the day in which as knowledge has no sex, the givers of the law lhat teach in her courts shall acknowledge none. Wotnan'B work—her work now, who may declare it. As an artist, working not on perishable marble, but in the indurating elements ot character your creations shall bo pillared 111 imperishable beauty, or pilloried in everlasting deformity. Asa builder you lay immovable tounlations if tho warning be to later workmen 10 lake heed how yo build thereon what solemn responsibilities are weighted upon you who lay the foundations As teacher jojb have the potter's pow er, and your teachings arc to furnish tho young minds ot this nation as vessels, unto honor or dishonor. You are thus the Foster mother ot ihe nation's parity the Guardian ot the nation's honor the conservators of the nation's life. From center to circum terence you touph its eecrct springs and Bethesda's fount Merab'a waters flow, a living-blessing or a deathless curse.

Communicated. Farmers* Crist Mill. While the farmers throughout the country are complaining—and jusily loo—ot the exorbitant rates ol trans portation over the various railroads lhat traverse ihe country in every di rection, they are apt to overlook many other equally excessive rates. A tew words on the subject ot gnsi mills, aud the high rates ot toll will form the burden ot this communica tion. That the high rates usually charged may be obviated, I would suggest that tho farmers organize a stock company, erect a good steain Grist mill, and place the same in op eration. A board of directors, a sec retary, president and treasurer woul 1 be necessary to transact the business ot the Company. Willi the organi zation thus perfected, the mill erect ed, the farmers who hold stock, say to the amount ot one hundred dol lars therein should have their milling done at CJSI, while a rate ot toll, such that would yield a fair profit, should be charged such as have uot that amounl ot stock. 1 claim that a mill can bo built hero, that will pay good interest to every farmer who will taku stuofc •», it. Ug t»ling six ty pounds of good wheat ho can get his forty pounds o4' good flour, in stead ot tweuty five or thirty pounds, the amount he gets now and also he can get his corn shelled and ground for four or five cents per bushel. From these figures it will be seen that the most ot the tarmers would save enough in two years at least, to pay lor their stock invested. 1 would like to seo the Granges, Fanners' Clubs and the fanners in general take hold of this and build a go mill. The writer is satisfied that the lui-d ness men ot Toledo would aid us liberally in the enterprise, tor a good mill, built and conducted on some such plan as 1 havo suggest-d, would bring more farmers to this point than anythiug else. I throw out these suggestions, hoping they will be favorably considered by all concerned. Hon. D. N. Cooley, of Dubuque, has been appointed by Governor Carpenter Commistioner to the Vi enna Exposition, and has accepted. The U. S. Senate which has been iu Execu'ive Session since the 4th of March has adjourned. The "bulls" and ''hears" have been at work this week in Wall Street, and the result has been to forcB tho gold premium to 18}. "Boss" Tweed his resigned his seat iu the State Seriate ot New York. This spoils a sensational beading for the New York Sfa» whose Albany correspondence dunug the winter wao headed, "Mr. Tweed's Legislature." While the report of the Caldwell Investigating Committee was under consideration Mr. Wright ol Iowa said he would have all electors tree and unbiased, as tar as possible. He should not object to the passage ot a law providing that the seat of a Sen ator shall In declared vacant, it it should be shown that he had left his seat here and was in attendance on the Legislature at the time ot his election, or undertook, either in per son or through frion-ls, to infla'iiic? hi* election. Readers and Spellers Tt the Teachert and School OJieert TamaCounty We, jour Committe appointed to examine, select and recommend a sories ot Headers and Spellers lor use iu the common schools of our county, have performed the duty to 4vhioh we were called, and we here with submit thi?, our report: Our first object has been to make the most judicious selection from the several competing series and thereby increase the efficiency ot our gchools in these most important branches ol education. We have selected, and earnestly recommend Monroe's series of Head ers, tor the following reasons First—They are fresh, attractive and tully up wilh the tunes. Second—This series of Keaders has been prepared by a practical and srccesstul teacher of Reading, one who has devoted many years to the subject, and carefully studied lt« workings iu the school room. Third—They combine tho smal lest am unt ot theory with the greatest amount of practice. F*0!l"Ul—Tliu Uo«]«) oonUttt the Word, Method, Phonic, Amlysit, the old "A C" method, and object teaching thus enabling the teacher to choose the course with which he is the most familiar, or the one he can teach most successfully. Fifth—The illustrations are by the best artists iu the country, and the mechanical execution generally is un surpassed. Sixth—In the Fourth Header is a feature never before presented iu any school book—-that ot representing by idustrations and diagrams, the tnannor ot forming every sound iu ihe language. By this means the pupil can see at a glance the position of the tongue, lips and jaws, necessary to produce tho correct English sound. This, with the table accompanying each diagram, we oonsider ot especial ad vantage in lialning children at tor eign birth or descent. Seventh—In the introduction to the Fifth Header are the most essen* tial portions of the system of physi cal and vocal training, taught with success by Prof Monroe in the pub lic schools of Boston.
