Uow .IXim-Ii la .M-r-ly Arbitrary?
Every human being pnnvn up Inshlo n
dieath of custom, which enfolds It as the
Hwat hing dot hes enfold tho infant. Tho
sacred customs of oho'h own early home,
how and immutablo they appear to
Ihcchilill It Hurcly thinks that ull tlio
worM in all times has proceeded on tho
Kaino lines which houmi its tiny life. It
refiii-d.-i a breach of these rules (xomo of
them, at lcust) as u wild htep in tho dark,
loading to iitikiiown dangers. The elders
liuvu always said (and, indeed, it seems
only reasonable) that by this time of day
everything has been so thoroughly worked
over that tlm best methods of ordering
otir life food, dress, domestic practices,
ttrx-ial habits havo long ago been deter
mined. If so, why the.so divergences in
tho simplest and most obvious matters?
And tlieu ono thing after another f,rve3
way. The nacred, world wide customs in
which we aro bred turn out to bo only
the practices of a small or narrow castoor
cla-Hc; or they prove to bo confined to a
very limited locality, and must Ik? left be
hind when wo get out on our travels; or
they Irf-long to tho tenets of a feeble sect;
or they are just tho products of one ago
hi history and no other.
Are there really no natural boundaries?
lias not our life any where been founded
tii rousoti and necessity, but only on arbi
trary custom:-? What is more imjort:njt
than fix id, yet in what human ma'.ter are
1 here inure arbitrary divergences of prac
tice? The Scotch Highlander flourishes
on oatmeal, which tho English Nheilii-hl
iron worker would r;itlicr starve then eat;
the fat snail which tho Roman country
jvutleman once so pri.td now crawls mi
ne, i.-sted ill English or American gardens;
rabbits nre tabooed in (iermany; frogs are
lirisjie;ihaliii in England; sauerkraut is
detected i:i 1'ninee; many races and
gangs of peopl.i r.r" quite certain they
would die if deprived f meat; others
thi'ik spirits of some kind a necessity,
v.iii!! to others again both these things
are uii abomination.
AMI YLT, WHY NOT?
Every district has its local practices in
fixxl. and tie) peasants look, with the
greatest suspicion ori any new dish, and
can rarely be induced to adopt it. Though
it lias ln-en ubiinduutly proved that many
of tho fungi are excellent eating, such is
the force f custom that the mushroom
nione is ever publicly recogni.ed, while
curiously enough it is said that income
other countries where tho claims of other
agarics are allowed tho mushroom itself
Is not used. Finally, I feel myself (and
the gentle reader probably feels the same)
that I would rather flio than subsist on
insects, such Is the deep seated disgust
we experience toward this class of food
Yet it is notorious that many races of
respectable people adopt a diet of this
port, and only lately ,i l.ok has been pub
lished giving a detail of excellent proven
ier of tiie kind we habitually overlook
nasty morsels of caterpillars and beetles,
find so forth.
And, indeed, when one comes to think
of it, what can it bo but prejudice which
causes one to eat the periwinkle and re
jeer the land snail, or to prize tho lively
' prawn and proscribe the cheerful crass
hopper? Why do we sit on chairs instead
til' mi thpi f'oor, as the Japanese do, or on
cushions like the Turks? It is custom,
mid perhaps it suits with our other cus
e. toiiis. The more wo look into our life and
y consider tho immense variety of habit in
ever;.- department of it even under eoi
ii;i ns to all appearances exactly similar
t ho. more are we impressed by the ab
tsence of flny serious necessity in the
forms we oursc-Jves aro accustomed to.
Each race, each class, each section of the
population, each unit even. auiits its
own habits of life as superior to the rest,
as tho only truo and legitimate forms;
find peoples and classes will go to war
with each other in their assertion of their
own Fpecta! belief and practices, but the
question that rather presses upon tho in
genuous Riid inquiring iv.ind is whether
any of us have got hold of much true life
lit all. Homo Journal.
Italians Not Good Solilieri.
Italians, the veteran diplomatist goer
on to say, may become good diplomatists,
pound jurists and successful merchants,
but they vill never bo soldiers in the true
6er.se of that ord- Take their splendid
fleet of irouthids, for asample, and uiar
fdial it in buttle array against a French.
English. Russian or German squadron,
commanded Ly a French, an English, a
Russian or a German admiral, ud tho dis
aster of Li.;sa will be rehearsed over agam.
Much of tl.is incapacity for successful
military achievement is du-j to want of
truinir:;? on tho part of the officers. In
Italy there ore many military schools that
are well attended; but in them, as in the
universities, there Is a fatal lack of sever
ity iu the examinations, and ouce the
student has left school he is never aftif
ward seen wi:b a book iu his Land.
It is for this rviison that we lind the
officers ia command of the Red Sea expe
dition committing prccuuly tli same er
run tliiit their predecessors fell into ir
lriJo.'id lOJ. Tho Italian officer seems
n to couevrued about only one thing the
eUect that he is pr-lucing ou the women
and on the bystanders iu general, and 1

tions, who never forgot, before going into
dio street, to arrange tholr hats and to

Good A1 vice to Speculators.
Speculation is a business that must bo
studied as a specialty, and though it is
popularly believed that any man who Jias
money can speculate, yet the ordinary
man, without special training In the busi
ness, is liable to make as tp-eat a mistake
in this attempt as the man who thinks ho
can act as Lis own lawyer find who is said
"to have a fool for a client." Tho com
mon delusion that expert knowledge i.j
not required in speculation has wrecked
many fortunes and reputations iu Wall
" etreet, and is still very influential in ita
pernicious and Illusory achievements.
Professional r.drics in Wall street, a?
In legal ailairs, is worta paying for, tn-i
costs far less In the end than tho cl.icf
"points" tliat ore distributed profusely
trouni tli3 street, thick as autumn Javej
In V&llimbrcsa, end which only allura
the Innocent speculator to put his money
where ho u almost certain to lcs it. My
advica to speculators who wish to rnak
money ia Wall street, therefore, is to ig
nore tho counsel of tho fcarroom "tippers"
end tipplers," turn their backs ou
'buciet shops," and when they want
"points" to purchase let them go to thos j

The men who ab onioned I he republ lean par
ty in ls.nl and continue to adhere to the demo
cratic party have deserted not only the cause
of honest government, but of Ktviliil finance, of
fmedom and purity of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted the cau-e of reform in the
civil service. We will not fall to keep uiir
pledges because tl ey have broken theirs, or
be ai'se their candidate has broken his. We
therefore repea- our declaration of ISH4, towit :
'I he reform of civil service auspiciously begun
uuoer republican administration should be
completed by afurther extension of tu reform
system already established by law to all grades
of the service n which it is applied. Tho spir
it and purpose of reform should be observed in

islatioii should be repealed, and that the dan
gers to free institutious which lurk in the pow
er ' f nf-cial patronage tn.jy be wisely and ef
The gratitude of the nati'Ui to the defenders
or the union cannot be assured except bv laws.
The legislation of congress should conform to
the pledges made by a loyal p opie. aud be so
enlarged and extended as to prov'de against
the possibility that any man who honorably
woi t iu; federal uiiifo'in sliall become an In
mate of an almshouse or dependent on private
ciwi"ity. In the presence of an overflowing
treasury it would b a public scandal lo do less
for those whose valorous service preserved the
government. We denounce the hostile spirit
shown by President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and the
action of Ihe democratic house of representa
tives in refusing even consideration of general
pension legiiilal ion.
In support :f the priuoipleo berewilh enun
ciated, we invite t he co-operation of patriotic
men of all parties, especially of all working
men whose prosperity is seriously threttened
by the free trade policy of the present admin
istration. The ilrst cm eern of nil good government is
the virtue and sobriety of the people jnd the
purity of their homes. The republican party
cordially sympathizes with all wise and well
directed efforts for the promotion of temper
