DENIED EQUALITY OF SEXES Men in 1813 Had Decided Views as to Woman's intellect and Her Sphere of Duty. There lies on the desk a book pub- lished and sold by Moses Thomas, Philadelphia, bearing the date of 1813, which makes it one hundred and five years old. There are many strange things in that book. which contains "Selections From Foreign Reviews and Magazines," all of which is claimed to be "the best thought of the ablest men of the age." There Is an essay at- tacking a French authoress who was claiming an equality of intellect of the two sexes. The reviewer remarks: "Upon the whole, we do not think that a little learning Is always a dangerous thing in a lady, so long as it has ref- erence to her condition of life and the sphere of her duties. That is as far as the world had got a,t that time in the education of wom- en. About seventy years afterward, when a woman became senior wrangler at Oxford, which is the highest honor In mathematics, there began a change of opinion concerning the quality of woman's intelh,ct. It was mainfalned in the entire period by those "ablest men of the age," that the "female intellect" was entirely lnferim" to that of men, and that her physical structure made it Impossible for her to comprehend the great questions, such as that of war. Since then a woman has written the greatest war hynm of the world.--St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Subscribe for the Monitor. For Shoe Repairing, White is Best by Test. Jacobsons Old Place.

In the same room are a number of menus obtained from hotels in various parts of the world. He places considerable value on several corks which have been pulled from the bottles o1: wine used ou the tables of well-known persons, and a dozen book dedications are considered an intpor- tent feature of the collection. Some of the autographs in-the collection are highly prized because they re- quired the expenditure of not a small sum of money and quite a little time During his travels in foreign lands the collector picked up the thigh bone of a Syrian giant, a chameleon of Bar. bary, a great*-African lizard and a rose which was said to be 100 years old.
