"A moro aerioua cause for anxiety ia
the absence, aa yot, ot tho manifestation
of anything llko commanding financial
ability either at tho capital ot tho nation
or in this metropolis. Tho president is
net, indeed, expected to be himself a
akilled and experienced financier, but ho
aa oall to his aid the boat experts ot
the country and profit by thoir counsels.
Yt his secretary of tho treasury is a
telpher, and though hk message to con-
was presumably written alter
oJMMmlUtkm with those whom -he
thought competent to advise him, it is
rsamkable for its lack ot all recomnien-,
datfoas savo that ot tho stoppage of
Hver purchases. It is silent in regard
to the tax on atato bank circulation,
itont in regard to the increase ot na
liana) bank circulation. It aaya noth
ing about legalising the present un
authorised gold reserve fund, and noth
4kg about giving explicitly to the secre
tary ot the treasury the power to pro
um gold for that fund by tho sale of
bonds. It tosses tho whole subject ot
the finances bodily into tho lap ot con
gress, to bo wrangled over at pleasure.
Thk night bo pardonable if 4 either in
the house of representatives or in the
enate the party which elected Presi
dent Cleveland was represented by a
nan competont to shape legislation on
financial matters and to conduct tho
debates on them to a successful ter
mination, but no Buch man has as jet
.appeared. Tho republicans aro moro
fortunato In having in tho senate, in tho
.person ot Senator Sherman, a well-in-.formed
and able financier as well as
-debater, but ho is a solium and dishonest
politician, who would rather tho coun
try should go to ruin than that It should
be helped by any moasuro which would
-benefit hk opponents."
It k not exactly clear wherein Souator
Sherman has merited the chargo ot eel
ishness and dishonesty. Tho senator
has thk far shown himself willing and
anxious to render every reasonable aid
to the party in power in straightening
ou the financial tangle.

tho French can neither nixak nor h(K)1I
tho word by which tho world's fair city
is known, and that hardly any English
man can pronounco it rightly, A Gor
man needs years of training for its ut
toronco. An Italian raises laughter in
tho Plalsanco when ho ejaculates it.
Jewish newcomers from Russia wrestlo
with It for a long timo, though its first
syllablo la of Hebraic sound. Tho
colored people ot tho far south smilo
when thoy try to get it off. Even a
member ot the tribe of Indians from
whoso language tho word was stolon,
says it has boon corrupted out ot reason.
There aro atorios from old Ireland about
tho attempts ot tho natives of that
country to speak or spoil tho titlo ot tho
naval ship Chicago, which put In at the
port of Queenstown last month. Somo
ot thorn pronounco tho first Hyllablo
Koo, which is in accord with tho Italian
usogo, soften tho next consonant c,
sharpon tho vowel a, and then Btriko
out into tho open pasture It is sug
gested that tho last syllablo ot tho word
would mako a good enough name.
"AnylKxIy can say Go, oven an infant,
or u cannibal, or n Midway ponton, or u
truckman. Tho adoption of that plain
yot oxpresslvo verb us tho namo of tho
western placo would savo mankind a lot
of troublo, and rollovo many people from
pain in tho mouth." But Chicago will
hardly chango Its name bocauso it gives
some people a pain in t,ho mouth. It
has givon a largo number of twoplo,
notably envious Now Yorkors, a worse
pain than that, without fooling particu
larly conscience stricken.
The egregious It, Soth Mobloy, tho
man who draws 1210 per month for
dawdling ut tho Nebraska building In
Chicago, under tho supervision ot tho
rattlebrained cracker man, Joe Gar
noau, not content with tho compurativo
obscurity which ho has hitherto on
joyed, haaof lato manifested a disposi
tion to mako himself as notorious as his
principal, and ho has been writing the
most ridiculous nonsonBO for tho Omaha
papors. Now the only security for addle-
pa tod, -shambling excuses like Mobley is
in obscurity, and thk specimen of Ne
braska's capability in tho production of
misfits, made a great inistako when ho
rushed into print with his drivel. Mobloy
would be overpaid at 9210 per year; yot
ho receives thk amount per month for
doing absolutely nothing, and now that
ho has called public attention to himself
it really seems that Mobloy is tho cul
minating atrocity of Garneuuism.
Mobley alono ia enough to queer tho
exhibit. Thk precious representative
ot .Nebraska journalism has tho
effrontery to inslnuato that tho criticism
ot tho .Nebraska exhibit is duo to tho
inability ot the critics to procure freo
admission to tho fair. Porhajw Mr.
Garneau'a wlno suppers have mado
Mobley entirely crazy. That ia tho most
charitable view to tako of his utterances.
But ho should bo suppressed. There is
certainly no domuud on the part of tho
state for chuttering empty heads ut 8240
per month. Mobley is utfor all worse
than tho Nebraska building. That is a
monumental pile ot tremendous blunders
that Crounso and Ournoau have to
answer for, and Mobloy is tho capstone.
Tin: democrats of Ohio could havo
selected no worthier opponent ot Me
Kinley than Larry Neul, tho mun who
wroto tho freo trudo plank of tho Chicago
platform, und dubbed tho protection

In 1054 the public punishment of
criminals becarno a prominent feature of
carnival. It was felt to be a serious
check upon the gayety of tho festival,
but excused as an awful oxainplo for
such as wero inclined to profit by the
general licenso for criminal behavior
rendered necessary now that precept had
been found inadequate to cope with the
disorders. Later on the chief and most
celebrated criminals wero specially re
served far carnival, on the first Saturday
of which they were punished.
Such as were guilty of disorderly con
duct during carnival itself were usually
flogged, and the necessary apparatus for
thk stood ready in several parts of the
city. We aro reminded of their existence
today by tho name Piazzctta della Corda,
and they remained up permanently until
destroyed by the people in 1788.
Courtesans were also publicly chas
tised if caught masked or dressed as men

being above seeking popularity by mak

"Holpl Help!" Loud and clear this cry
of distress rang through tho rotunda of the
Administration building early this morn
ing, startling tho sleepy guard who sat In
a darkened comer.
He listened intently. Without ho heard
tho shuffle of tho feet of tho first workmen
on tho gravel walk. Tho hum in his head
gradually increased, lulling him into ;i
peaceful slumber, and in hk imagination
he was just arresting a visitor who had
asked him where tho Manufactures build
ing was, when the cry for help again rang
out and brought tho guard to his feet.
Ho tiptoed to the door, and standing
within its shadow he listened.
Suddenly from without tho door camo a
moan, followed by another. The guard
rushed out of tho door and there beheld, to
his surprise, a young man, the shape ot
whose head and the cut of whose clothes
proclaimed him to be of the species "dude."
"Who called for help?" demanded the
"What is the matter?" asked the guard.

'.I.tstcd More Faith.
A clergyman who was settled some years
ago in a southern town was in great favor
with the colored brethren and wan fre
quently called upon to "sit in council" with
the members ot one ot their churches In a
neighboring town.
Among these members was au old darky,
with grizzled hair, who had In a high
degree the gift for "responses" so much cul
tivated by tbe peoplo of his color. He wat
always ready with "Amen!" and moro thau
ready with "Glory!" but his particular fond
ness was for the fervent ejaculation, "Oe
Lord gib us more faith!"
On ono occasion, when the clergyman In
question had been called upon to discourse,
to thk congregation, be illustrated his
"practical talk" with tho story of an occur
rence which he bad himself witnessed not
long before. As ho finished it he said ear
nestly! "Now, my brethren, you would hardly
believe, would you, that any man could
have witnessed such a scene as that almost
at your very doors?"
As he paused, there came a tremendous
groan from the old darky, and with great
fervor he ejaculated, "Do Lord gib us moro
