I his is a short paragraph, but it is
long enough to contain two misstate
ments. It is now, and always has been
ound democratic doctrine to abolish ex
cise taxes as soon as the necessity fo
their existance has ceased. Excise taxes
were always the most odious of leyiep.
They would have been abolished long
ago had not the free traders hoped tin: t
the people would at last consent to pat t
with a portion of the protective tariff in
order to bs rid of the odious excise taxer.
Their policy has been to hold the inti'r
nal revenue at its present point would
accept free wool, free tin. free lumber,
free salt and free chemicals in order te
bo rid of the domestic tax. That this i
not good democracy or good statesman
ship was demonstrated at the polls last
November. The second statement, thi:t
clothing, sugar, lumber, salt, crockery,
glass, iron and tin arc taxed at more than
war-time rates, is as untrue as the first.
Since the close of the war the protection
ists have passed four tariff acts, each re
ducing the revenue, as follows:
Act of July 14, 1870:
Free list $2,403,000
Reduction from dutiable list..23,31,74S
Act of May 1. 1872:
fea and coffee put on free

Act of June 6, 1872:
Free list 3,345,724
Reduction in dutiable list ...19,489,800
Act of March 3, 1883:
Freo list $l,365,9l0
Reduction on dutiable list 19,489,000
Making a total reduction in
revenne from tariff duties
of . $77,0S3,309
During the same time the protectionists
have passed six bills reducing the inter
nal revenue $284,421,200. It is there
fore untrue, even from a free trader's
point of view, that any taxes now levied
are "more than war-time rates." Ameri

March 14, 138a. L H. Dcns,
Slonauterles) tuid Mental PIimim,
Tho monasteries were frequent
eout-cos of thai form of mental disease
which was supposed to bo caused by
bewitchment, "from the. earliest
period it Ls evident .that monastic life
tended to develop insanity. Such
eases us those of tit. Anthony and Ht.
Augustine aro typical of its effects
upon tho strongest minds: but it was
especially tho convents for women
that lecamo tho great breeding beds of
tins disease. Among the large num
!cr.i of women and giria thus asscm
bled, many of them forced into con
finement agninsl their will, for the
reason that their families could give
Ihern no tlower, subjected to the un
satisfied longings, suspicions, bicker
ings. iettv "jealousies, envies and
hatreds, so notorious in convent life,
mental disease was not unlikely to bo
develoncti at anv moment, llvsterical
excitement in nunneries took shapes
sometimes comical, but more erener
ally tragical. Noteworthy it is that
tho last places where executions for
witchcraft took place were mainly in
the neighborhood of great nunneries,
and tho last famous victim of the
hundreds of thousands executed in
Herman v for this imaginary crime
was sister Anna Keuata Sanjrer. sub-
prioress of a nunnery near Wurzburg.
lhe same thimr was seen among
young women exposed to sundry fa
natical Trotestant preachers; insanity,
both temporary and wi-mauent, was
thus frequently developed among the
Huguenots of t ranee, ana lias been
thus produced in America, from the
davs of the Salem persecution down
to tho "camp meetings" of tho present
time. Andrew D. White in Popular
Douville, the fraud.
One of tho most ingenious frauds
who ever imposed upon geographers
was t!io Frenchman, Douville, who
lived in tho early part of this century,
He told the most fabulous stories of
his African travels, and. as late as 1850
there were some geographers who
still believed Douville was a remark
able traveler. Ho lived at a time
when the entire interior of tropical
Africa was a white space on the maps.
This great blank ho undertook to fill.
Though ho was never more than
twenty or thirty miles inland in his
life, ho claimed to have penetrated
Central Africa, and to have visited
tho chief town of tho fac famed Munta
Yamvo. All ho required for tho work
was a few interviews with native ivory
deal era who came from tho interior
to sell their goods. They gave him a
good deal of misinformation, which,
with tho aid of a brilliant imagination,
ho expanded into a long story of
travel, lie caught hardly a glimpse
of tho truth with regard to tho many
countries he pretended to have visited,
and lis described scores of towns and
states that had no existence. Ho be
trayed his true character in & most
ludicrous manner. Ho had tho auda
city to invent a vocabulary for one of
his tribes, in which ho roado all the
words end in tho letters x or z. t5ome
students of African languages dissect
ed this vocabulary and promptly pro
nounced Douville a first class fraud.
This shallow uecc-iyer long enjoj-ed
great credit ns a traveler j but lie lived
Ton;? enough to see his pretensions
pretty thoroughly exploded. C. C.
