. Illinois politicians are giving .Sen
ator Joha A. Logan quite a boom just
oow; the sentiment seems to i-revail
among all classes and parties lmii:o
tive of political affilliation that bou
ator Logan would make a president
who would do honor to the republic
There is one thing quite sure, and thai,
is, that in the great west there is a
grand army of ' the boys who used to
wear the blue who would rally to tbe
banner of any party that makes John
A. Logan its standard heater for 1134.
Senator Logan has always been the
consistant friend aud champion of
the soldier element, in the halls of the
Theke is oue tning that Governor
Butter and the republican legislature
of Massachusetts can agree upon, and
that is the acknowledgment of wo
man's fltness for public postt:ou in the
service of the state or nation. On the
llth of April, Gov. Butler made three
very important nominations to the ex
ecutive counoil two prominent men
and oue woman. Miss Clara JJ.n ton,
the famous lady of the UeJ Orua., w.u
appointed superintendent of the wo
man's prison at 6herboru. ilisa Bar
ton's name was taken up, and bhe w.;s
confirmed at once. The other names

moves, and this is an idt-nce of it.
What of it it tne -jovt-ruor of Kin-a
did tine the proclamation of the govern
or of Nebraska? It has been a custom
trom time immemorial for the governor
ol on estate to, iu wjmcway recognize
the governor of the other atat. Now
tbeu Kansas being a prohibition state
and the old time immemorial practice ol
exchanging civilities between Governor
Glick and Dawe being out of the ques
tion, the IIekald thinks the Karnes
executive perfectly justifiable iu indulg
ing in something exhiliarating aud ot a
pleasant character to the honor ot Ne
braska's chief executive, and if no one
else is going to acknowledge the cour
tesy the IIebald will do so by saying to
the democratic executive of our sitter
republican state. "Here's a double
health to thee." Glick.
The Herald noticed a few days
since the fact that the great Burling
ton interest had secured its through
line to Salt Lake City via the Denver
& Rio Grande's new line, to Ogdeu and
Salt Lake City. This is a fact, and no
sooner than heralded to the world, by
the Burlington interest, does the

Some one argues thai while Nihil
ism or resort to dynamite and nitro
glycerine in England is not to be tol
erated for a moment, that the same
methods are excusable in Russia be
cause there must be a tearing down
there before there can be any progress,
This is the worst sort of sophistry.
Hideous crime in Busia is just as
heinous and just as detestable as in
England, and it is an open question
whether Russia h:;s hot treated her
peasantry better than England has the
tenantry and peasantry in Ireland, or,
to put it another way. the Irish peas
ant has as- good cause for stooping to
destructive methods as the Russian
farmer. And there is no more discon
tent among the poorer classes in Ire
land than there is among the poorer
classes in Russia. The Nihilist and
anarchist, whether they plot iu Rus
sia, Trance, Germany, or England, or
whether they sneak about among the
worst classes in this country, are me
enemies of Bocietr, and sympathy for
them cannot be manufactured to order.
The threats about what the Nihilists
will do at Moscow come from what
Count Bosenta called little Commer
cial Grewellei sorts of Nihilists ped
dling cheap . threats as a means of ac
quiring notoriety. Does any one sup
pose that If these fellows meant to do
what they threaten that they would
boast of it? The Nihilists who did
real work never boasted, and so far as
these men who snarl and bark at the
Czar from the safe distance of thous
ands of miles are concerned the coro

"Jimmy, throw that jug into the
liig-peu. Smash it first, and be sure
you don't t'ute a drop of the vile
Htuff," said an anxious looking wo
man as she handed her little eon the
brown Jug which she bad found hid
den iu the ahed.
"Father won't like it' begau the
bnr, eyeing the ugly thing with a
look of fear and hate; for it made
mother miserable, and father a brute.
"I said I'd make way with it the
next time I found it, and I willl It's
lull, and I don't leel as if I could live
through another dreadful time like
the last. If we put it out of sight.
maybe father will keep sober lor an
other nio'th. Go quick, before he
comes home.". And the poor woman
pushed the boy to the door as if she
could not wait a minute till ths curse
of her life was destroyed.
Glad to comfort her, and Lavo the
lun of smashing anything, Jimmy ran
oil", and, giviug the jug a good bang
on the post, let the whisky run where
it would as he lluug the pieces into
the pig-pen and went back to his
lib was only eleven, but ho strug
gled manfully with the old saw, and
the tough apple tree boughs he had
collected for 1'uoL It was father's
work but he neglected it, aud Jimmy
wouldn't see his mother buffer from
cold, so he trimmed the trees, and did
his best to keep the lire jioitii;. He
stopped often to rest, aud in these
pauses he talked to himself, having
no other company.
Not long after the destruction of
the jug, he heard a great commotion
in the pen, and, looking in, saw the
two pigs capering about in a curious
way. They ran up aud dowu, skipped
squealed, aud bumped cgainsl oue an
other as if they didn't sea straight,
aud had no control of their legs.
Jimmy was much amused ior a few
minutes, but, when oue staggered to
i he trouirh aud besran to lap some
thing there, aud the other tumbled
down aud could not get np, lie under
stood the cause of their antics.
;Oh, dear! I let the whisky run in
lo the trough, and those bad pigs are
tipsy! What shall I do?"
He watched them au instant, and
added in a sober way, as he shook
his head sadly, "That's just the tway
father does", lively first, then cross,
then stupid. The' don't look funny
uow, aud I'm sorry for ,em. They
will be dreadfully ashamed when
they sober up. I'm glad there isn't
any wife aud little son to be scared
and mortified and sorry ever 'era. l'l
talk to 'em and tell 'cm what the man
said in the temperance lecture we
went to last night. Maybe it will do
So Jimmy mounted the chopping
block and' repeated all he could re
member, making a funny jumble.
but being very much in earnest
and quite uuconcioua that he had an
o.her hearer beside the pigs:
My friends, rum is an awful thing
People who drinc are slaves. They
arc worse than dumb beasts who
don't drink. (Yes they do; but that
was my fault.) Half the siu and sor
row in the world comes lrom ruin
Men waste their money, neglect their
families, break their wires' hearts
and set abad example to their chil
dren. People better die than drink,
and make brutes of themselves.
Lots of money is wasted. Folks
Kill other folks when druuk, aud
lie. aud do every bad tiling. Now, ray
friends (I mean you pigs),turu from your
evil ways, aud drink no more. (Ill
smash the jug behind the burn next
time, where even the hens can't liad it.)
Rise iu your manhood and free yourselves
from this awful slavery. (They are both
fast asleep, bst I'd help "em up when
they wake.) Lea 1 better lives, and don't
let thoM who love you suffer sii&rue aud
fear and griof for your weakness. (I do
love you old fellow, and I am sorry to
see you make such pigs of yourselvea.J
Here is the pledge; come and fcigu it
Keep it all your lives, aad be good men.
(I mean pigs.)"
Here Jimmy smiled, but he meant
what he said, and pulling out of his
pocket a piece of paper aad a pencil, he
jumped down to use the block as a desk,
Baying, as he wrote iu big letters, "They
shall have a pledge, and they can make
a murk as people do who can't write.
I'll make it short, so they can under
stand it, and I know they will keep if,
for I shall help them."
So busy was the boy with his work
that he never taw a man steal up lioni
behind the peu where he had been lis
tening, and laughing at Jimmy's lecture,
till . something seemed to chauge the
-miles to tears, for, as he peeped over the
lid's shoulder, he saw how worn the lit
tle jacket was, how braised and blistered
the poor hands were with too hard work,
and how he stood on one foot, because
Lis toes were out ef the old shoes.
A month's wages were iu the man's
pocket, and he meant to spend them in
more whiskey when bis jug was' empty.
Now the money sosnied all too little to
make his son tidy, and he coxldn't bear
to think bow much be bad wasted on
low pleasures that made a worse brute of
bim than the pigs. .
"There! said Jimmy, "! guess that
will rjo. v,Toxn and Jerry, d ftolewn- i
ly promise never to touch, tnstc or han
dle anything that can make us drunk."
Now for the names. Which shall
mark first T"
"I will !" said the man, startling Jim
my so much that he nearly tumbled into
the pen cs he was climbing up. The
paper fluttered down inside, and both
forgot it as the boy looked up at the man
saying, half ashamed, In If glad
"Why, father, did you hear me? I was
only sort of playing."
"I am in earnest, for your lecture was
a very good one; and I'm not going to be
a beast any longer. Herejs money fcr
new shoes and jacket. Give me the saw.
I'll do my own work now. and you go
tell inoiher what I say.
Jimmy was about to race away, when
the sight of Tom and Jerry eating up the
paper made him clap his hands, exclaim
"They've taken the pledge really and
truly. I'm so glad !"'
It was impossible to help laughing;
but the man was very sober agaiu as he
said slowly, with his hand ou Jimmy's
"You shall write another for me. I'll
sign it aud keep it to, if you will h;lp
me, my good little son ."
"I will, father, I will!" cried Jimmy
w ith all his heart, and then ran iu lo
carry the good news to his mother.
That was his first lecture but not
his last; for he delivered many more
when he was a mau, because the work
begun that day prospered well, and
those pledges were truly kept.
