   Burlington Hawk-Eye (Newspaper) - May 4, 1890, Burlington, Iowa                                Pages I PART I THE ESTABLISHED WE1T DUTEEEICE JOES IT IAIE H POBITION TOWASD Woman the Last and Highest Achieve ment of CreationLillth and Her as She Means to The fly on the coach wheel How do travel And just about as as the fly regulated the speed of so much do we control and the speed ofthe Of course ever so many of us imagine ourselves the deux and fancy that if we were eliminated from the af the coach must cither stop or le shunted off the crown of the highway where we keep But looking at the matter more philosophic perceive that through the few thou sands of years of which alone we know anything at all the world has gone me thodically carrying out some system of which we know very little the earth producing her such as just at the time the previous supply ot material is and not at all in answer to mans demand or We how the race of man has gradually developed from perhaps the perhaps only tbe clay devouring to its present let us most devoutly is not its final perfection and wo which is just now what we want to the curi ous development of womans place in the KCale of and of her relation toward Taking for a moment the biblical account of the we per ceive that it perhaps by evo perhaps from HIM low est forms to the man coining after the and woman after thus placing her at the crown and sum mit of Perhaps it hounds a little arrogant for a woman to Kay that this eminence is act ually womans proper but I thinkfcw men will duny that a perfect woman nobly planned is the highest work of civativu power from more than onepi mil of il not from all and when nun considers the development of woman in thcse latter and per ceives thut the progress of that devel opment is rather accelerating than di one clings closer to the coach and wonders where in life it is taking us to Of course we all knowlhat woman has not always stood at the bund of That proud eminence has hithorto been claimed by who assumed to be lord not only but of woman and woinni lias more or less meekly and morn or less consistently allowed the There is a pretty legend in tbe Talmud that wlitm Adam was created a woman wis also and mimed Lilith she was of such irrace and charm as bus never wince been seen upon the and being independently had as muoli power and regnant authority as her The so the Tal mud was more than a little un pleasantness in the paradisiacal house Adam laid down the and Keraicly capped it with which she claimed was just as valid as lim and we can well imagine that Ul itliH tongue and wit were just as much mi innimble than Adams arc than your husbands The consequence was that find ing bis not worth the appealed to Allah fur and with better result than many husbands obtain fur it was then thai tbo deep sleep came upon and therib extracted from his side was faslnoncd into a being derived from was sub ject mid obedient unto as Adam decla was the helpmeet he had failed lo find in That young disgusted with the introduction of a went away and sit up a paradise of her and from her miraculously sprung a races of glorious but rebellious a sort of afrits or who ever since have claimed the earth for their own and con stantly amused themselves with tempt ing and dominwring over the sons of Rviand thwarting and annoying her Ami the reason I have told this kmg story just here is because I am dead sure that tho daughters of like the wandering tribes of have strayed across the and are claiming tbe New World as their especial This accounts for a great deal besides the milk in the cocoauut it accounts for the aggressive and independent stand assumed by woman during the last hah of this century it accounts for the min gled admiration and indignation with which men regard her new demands it above for the disagreeable things the women who dont want to votes say about those who do it is the old warfare of the daugh ters of Eve against the daughters of aud with a little consideration one may divide all the women of ones acquaintance into throe and third estate so mixed in then heredity that they side witb first and then the and then with and then with neither of the more positive of thought and I am afraid I am a for I never have been able to train invself into that meek and mild admiration of man as a master that Eve and her daughters so sweetly and the future of woman seems to me to largely embrace tbe future of the world and of So long as Lilith and her re mained in their eastern solitudes no Stanley lias yet the daughters of Eve occupied the stage of the worlds and both history and tradition show the part they He slaves sometimes of mans sometimes of bis they tailed for their savage performing menial lahorwhile he hunted or

coach which he dimly perceives he does not only rides upon giving up the says there isnt any power at it just goes nobody knows and for his part he is apt going to attend to any such non sense woman is what she always hat the adjunct of the Jeebler less responsible half of hisown whom he is bound to to educate to protect and to While she is young and pretty he will make love to and if she resists his pursuit he will probablj want her very much indeed and say a great deal about her perfec tions and merits liaving obtained and in parenthesis the man remarks that she generally is as glad to be caught as be is to catch mans dutv is to treat her but not to let her snp pose she cau manage her own much less his hasnt she promised to love honor and and does she fancy he isnt going to exact the whole bond Ho doesnt expect her to know or care about his business if he is a business she couldnt and her opinion wouldnt be worth takingif he Is he takes good care not to tell her anything about his be you women cant keep a and invariably put on their bon nets and run over to Soandsos to retail every bit of gossip they can pick up a woman has no idea of law equity or If he is a he has a fine for he pehs her with and be obedient to your own hoc in a fine chest Altogether man is quite sure that he knows all about woman and is perfectly competent to guide and govern her along witb the But this new departure What is to be done about it he peevishly mutters Nonsense Dont be silly Go get a new bonnet if you want but dont talk like a This doesnt quite seem to quiet the and he waxes wiity about long haired men and short haired wo and aslcs his or or if she is going to order the nether garments of his tailor or buy them readv Even this withering sarcasm doasnt altogether nip the pestilent growth of this stem of and then the shrewder kind of man tries to identify himself with the new and is ma nanimous and kind and patronizing to and holds out his saying Ill help you up to the sad dle right in front of and you shall manage the snaffle and the curb and keep the To this proposition Lilith in that man is quite welcome to ride his own horse after bis own and she shall not interfere so long as he does notobstrnct her but that she is her self well and feels quite able to manage whip and spur she is very willing and desirous to ride alongside of her comrade man in the most amicable spirit she sees that they are both bound to tbe same and she grants that each can make the road pleasanter and more profitable for the but she insists upon it that her steed Progress is quite as valuable as his nag and if he will not allow her room to ride by his side ehe shall certainly push for the and may unfortunately crowd him to the wall as she At all ehe does not propose to be crowded to the wall nor does she intend to ride any longer upon pre either behind or before men she is daughter of equal in everv way to although in a different direc tion she does not claim to govern or direct nor does she mean to let him govern or direct That sort of thing does very well for the daughter of that poor creature who could not resist the blandishments of Satan nor the de sire for forbidden aud having got herself into a dragged Adam into it after But says am quite a match for Satan and his and am brave enough to fight my own battles and bear my own All I ask is that man should treat me as well as I treat or as he treats his brother There lies the Will can mau see that a new condition of affairs obliges him to adopt a new atti tude Tiie good steed Progress is bear ing woman to the front will he draw Precedent aside and make room that the two may ride on true and faith ful or will he insist that she run at his sit cozily upon a pil lion at his or perch precariously in front and guide the snaffle rein One thing is and the old order of the world is changing and a new order is coming in nor can the will one man or all the men in the nor of all the women into the or or alter the course of that great The only thing both and can do is to adaptj ourselves to Let the women open wide their eyes to the new sphere of action opening before them let them emancipate themselves in tbe best mean ing of the word from the swaddling bands and chains of roses that hare fettered their limbs hitherto Jet them hi their own persons and in their daugh seek to know what is going on in the and form opinions upon such matters as independently of men as of each Let theru cultivate the man ly virtues of self while not letting go their own birthright of self what a noble
