THE Boyd shouters of 1S90 have
finally discovered that the present
governor of Nebraska is a democrat
for office and revenue only.

Harmony still prevails in the
democratic party because the
masses of that partj do not know
whether they are for free silver or
against it, as some states are
coming out strong for silver while
others are just as strongly opposed
Chairman Sprixger . made a
speech .in Philadelphia in 1890. in
which he prophesied that grass
would grow in the principal streets
of that city within a year if the
McKinley law was allowed to go in
to effect, and the grass hasn't begun
to sprout yet.
Mr. Irvixe Dyx'GAN, a democratic
.congressman from Ohio, thus sizes
up the present congress: "I am be
coming cqnvinced that this is a cow
ardly congress. It is becoming very
ti'-.-o:ne to me. It ought to get up

3 0ii,r e to the past, what a. dread
ful shadow that is.
IF Billiam Silver Bryan wants to
remain in office he had better de
cline a congressional nomination
and play for the governorship.
Truly he has much show of an elec
tion to that office, but he has no
show on earth as a congressional
candidate. 'His eloquent sophis
tries about tin, nails and wool is
burnt powder. This tip is given
the young man in friendship.
The'1 wars in V3-0ming and Omaha
are raging with .nnabated fury. The
cattlemen and the Martin men are
getting the worst of it so far and
they are the two sides that ought to
win. They can be cheered with the
consoling reflection of the. poet to
the effect that Truth smeared around
over the ground will eventu 'ly get
up again and give it to Errot right
in the necV, causing said Error to
die among his worshippers. Fre
mont Tribune. " -
AxY sensible man ought to see
through the democratic game of
trickery and cowardice on the tariff,
silver and all other vital issues.
In one continuous chorus, publicly
and privately, the majority howls
for "nothing to be done until after
the presidential election." They
want to be in a position to promise
anything to anybody, be all things
to all men and make another calam
ity campaign, hopiig to catch
enough suckers to run out on. Its
no go, gentlemen. The scales have
fallen from 'the people's eyes and
parrot-like mouthings will not
make democratic votes this year.
Gexekal Palmer of Illinois is
another of those screechers for
"tariff . reform,", and says now he
left the republican party because of
its tariff policy. Twenty years ago
it was when John M. Palmer left the
republican party and in a public
speech at Decatur, Illinois, he said
he left it because he could not
stand General Grant's administra
tion and that Sheridan was sent to
Chicago with troops. Speaking
then of the tariff he advocated the
idea expressed by the lamented
Hancock in 18S0 that the tariff was
a local issuei Palmer said then:
"The tariff question should be set
tled by the cengressional districts
as a non partisan question." The
veteran office-seeker's memory was
probably fresher in '12 than in '92 a9 !
to the reasons which induced him j
to leave the republican for thedem
Frank Morgan is an enthusiastic
Bryan man. He can swallow the tin
and wool eloquence of the magnetic
young man, but he -don't go that
unlimited silver proposition at all.
Morgan is a level-headed business
man too much so in fact, to be
training witn the democratic party
upon any question.' The democratic
party is lanti-business.
The tariff and the silver question
are the two important issues in the
coming campaign, and it will not
do to ignore either the one or the
other. Both are vital. Both affect
the interests of every voter. The
positions of the parties should be
understood. The republican party
is for protecting every American in
dustry, beause protection diversifies
industries, provides labor for all, in
sures good wages to the working
man and artisans, and good prices
at home to the producer of food.
The democratic party is for free
trade, which would result in low
wages and bring high prices for
manufactured articles so soon as the
American factories were driven out
of existence, whilst low prices for
food products would be the inevit
able result when all were forced to
become food producers. As to sil
ver, the republican party is for hon
est money and enough of it to trans
act the business of the country. It
provided in the last congress for the
consumption each year of 34,000.000
ounces of American silver, putting
in circulation legal-tender dollars
sufficient to purchase that. amount
of silver bullion. The entire pro
duct of American silver is .60,000,000
ounces, and fully 10 per cent of that
is used in the arts ' and manufac
tures, so that through republican
legislation every available ounce of
American silver is turned into legal
tender dollars and added to the cir
culation in a much better form than
if the metal itself was coined. ' The
majority of the democrats in this
house voted for a bill which, if it
could become a law, meant a silver
standard and a silver currency,
either of wh ich would be disastrous
to the country.

IN OLD AGE.
What is it now to live? It is to breathe
Jflie air of heaven, behold the pleasant earth.
The bhinioK rivers, the inconstant sea.
Sublimity of mountains, wealth of clouds.
And radiance o'er all of oountlens stars.
It is to sit before the cheerful hearth
With groui of friends and klndrad, store of
Rich heritage from ages past, .
Hold sweet communion, soul with soul.
On things now past, or present, or to come.
Or mune alone upon my earlier days.
Unbind the scroll, whereon is writ
The story of my busy life:
Mistakes too often, but successes more.
And consciousness of duty done
It is to see with laughing eyes the play
Of children sporting ou the lawn.
Or mark the eager strifes of men
And nations, seeking each and all.
Belike advantage 10 obtain
Above their fellows; such is man!
It is to feel the pulnes quicken, as I hear
- Of great events nvar or afar.
Whereon may tnru -erchance -The
fate of generations, ages hence.
It is to rest with folded arms betimes.
And so surrounded, so sustained.
Ponder on what may yet befall
In that unknown mysterious realm
Which lies beyond the range of mortal ken.
Where souls immortal do forever dwell;
Think of the loved ones who await me there.
And without murmuring or inward grief.
With mind unbroken and no fear.
Calmly await the coming of the Lord.

A negro man displayed a phenomenal
amount of courage at the Ivy Street hos
pital Saturday. He has quite a lot;;!
reputation as a 'fiddler." He was re
ceutly the victim of an accident tha:
necessitated the amputation of one oi
his legs. He was at the hospital when
the surgeons arrived to conduct tlir
operation. Notwithstanding his serion:
and painful condition, and the fact'tli.n
lie was to undergo the excruciating
agony of having one of his legs, ai.
probably both, cut off, he greeted .
surgeons with a broad smile.

amined, and one of the surgeons. wi;!
solemn and significant shake of 1..:
head, eaidf '
"Bob, it'B a bad job; but your legs .u 1
in a bad condition, and amputation .
Bob looked up quizzically and asked
"What yer mean by ampertaslion
"1 mean your legs must come off."
"Gee whiz! cap'n, bofe of 'em?"
"Probably so, I can't tell yet," was tin
The smile on the ebony face was at
once succeeded by a dark and troubled
look, and Bob began to explain tht
change thusly: .......
"Cap'n, if you took bofe dese here mm:

Stout Women Should Not Smoke.
The question1 of whether women shall
smoke or not has evidently not yet been
settled. Any woman who has a lurking
desire to be enrolled . under the banner
of the fragrant leaf will do well to read
this , caution from Mr. James Payu.
Says he:. " - .
"It is noticeable that when this prac
tice among women is advocated t he
lady smoker" is always represented as
young and beautiful and handling her
cigarette as if it were a flower. - From
an artistic point of view I feel bound to
confess that no lady of mature years
and inclined to stoutness 6hould venture
upon this enjoyment."

An elderly man in Peering recently
recovered from an attack of the grip
that cost him his teeth and nearly cost
him his life. He was taken suddenly
and violently ill and the same day every
tooth in his upper jaw became so loose
that he could move them with his tongue
and so sore that he could not masticate.
They were sound enough before to war
rant their lasting several years, but they
all had to be extracted. Lewis ton ("Me.)
At one of the grammar schools in this
city the fourth grade pupils were not
long since reading the story of an iw

text read, "Both aides fought with
dogged pertinacity." When this point
was reached a boy in one of the back
seats raised his hand and calmly in
quired, "What kind of weapons are
those?" Buffalo Express.
