HOW IT WORKS.
The McKinley law is doing more
to build up industries and give em
ployment to labor than any other
system that could be adopted; it is
depopulating manufacturing dis
tricts in Europe, but populating
our own; it is transferring capital,
manufactures and sitilled laborers
from other lands to ours; it is devel
oping the talent of our inventors,
and multiplying " labor-saving
machinery; it is adding to our pop
til::;!. m, enterprises, wealth and de
i for capital and labor; it is
:niing the product of our
... . -o of coal and iron and copper
m. d cinnabar and zinc and our
quarries of stone, and is opening up
our mines of tin. It is supplying
needed revenue, and compelling
foreign manufacturers to pay a
good part of it. The "tin plate liar"
is in full retreat. It has compelled
the 'robber" free trader to pause in
his career of plundering American
citizens for the benefit of foreign
ers. Free traders are being repudi
ated by the people. Hill i9 rebuked
in the great state of New York,
where republicans kave beeu
robbed of power by fraud and cor
ruption. Judge William Lawrence
FREE TRADE PERIODS.
Free trade has had five periods of
relative prevalence in the history
of the United States that is, there
have been five distinctly marked
period when foreign competing im
ports have been freer than at any
others to enter our ports, to the
subversion and overthrow of do
mestic competing industries.
1. The colonial period, ending
with throwing over of the tea in
Boston Harbor and the battle of
Lexington in 1773. The British
parliament forbade us by law to
manufacture in order tha they
might monopolize our market.
This chiefly impelled us toward
the war for independence.
2. The "peace under confedera
tion" peiiod from 1783 to 1789, when
no national duties on imports ex
isted. This chiefly impelled us to
adopt the federal constitution.
3. The period of the so-called re
ciprocity treaty with England in
1816 to 1824, culminating in the
financial crisis of 1817-19.
4. The compromise tariff period
of 1833 to 1842, including the un
paralelled crisis of 1836-39.
"The Walker tariff period of 1846
to '57, intensified by the further re
duction in '57 and thus prolonged
to March 3, 1861. This period was
marked by a general poverty or
"hard times" crisis, setting in in the
summer of 1854, continuing into a
bankruptcy and non-payment crisis
in 1855, which caused a mercantile
bankruptcy crisis in England in
1856, and this reacting produced the
bank crisis in America in 1857, after
Without a single exception, our
every approach to free trade
brought disaster, particularly to
farmers and working people.

Like a Hero.
An English civil engineer, Mr. Francis
L Grundy, relates what he calls "The
short story of an unknown hero." "Bill,
the banker," he was called, and even at
the inquost over his body no other name
He was only a poor navvyi his usual
place was at the top of a forming em
bankment, among the "tip wagons."
During the building of the Manchester
and Leeds railway he was top man over
a shaft of one of the numerous tunnels
which were being constructed on the
Here he met with a gloriously disas
trous accident, and his conduct should be
emblazoned in letters of gold upon the
history of his country. He was only a
navvy, I say, and probably could neither
read nor write.
The shaft was perhaps 200 feet deep,
6olid rock sides and bottom. His duty
was to raise the trucks winch had been
filled below and run them to the tip,
returning them empty to his mates at
the bottom. If a chain broke, or a big
bowlder fell off the truck, he had to
shout, "Wanr out!" and the miners be
low crept farther into their "drives"
and allowed the death dealing article to
come down harmlessly.
One unhappy day Bill's foot slipped
hopelessly, and he knew that he must be
smashed. from side to side of the narrow
shaft, and landed a crushed mass at the
bottom. But his mates? If he screamed
the unusual noise would bring them out
at once to inquire the cause.
He never last his presence of mind.
Clearly went down the signal, "Waur
out below?" and his mates heard in
safety the thud, thud, smash of his
Disobedience Not Untruthfulness.
A friend once told me that she did not
know what to do with her little boy,
four years old, who had for the last few
days been telling all sorts of untruths,
with no reason or sense in them. For
instance, that morning she told him she
did not want him to carry out, as he
had been doing, his little basket of ap
ples to Bhare with his playmates, as the
apples were nearly gone. Two or three
hours after she heard his little feet on
the cellar stairs. She went out, and
saw him coming tn the stairs with his
basket of apples.
"Why, Eben, did I not tell you not to
bring up any more apples for the chil
dren?" "Yes'm," answered the little fellow,
pursuing his way.
"Why do you bring them, then?"
"I'm not bringing them," said he.
"Is not that a basket apples yon
have in your hand?"
"Well, then, you are bringing up ap
ples, as I told yon not to, are you not?"
"No, mamma," he said, with an honest
expression of face.
She was shocked at his deliberate and
stupid untruth, and also that he should
seem so indifferent about it. The child
was, and is now that he is grown, per
fectly honest and truthful; but here was
a phase of development when the refrac
tion of mental rays produced this crooked
result in his mind. The prime element
of untruth is deception, and here was no
.intention to deceive. Harper's Bazar.
Tatie of the Maid of Honor.
She is going to be maid of honor at
the wedding of one of her dear friends,
and she wants to know what her duties
are. Well, they are not very onerous.
She walks alone, just ahead of the bride,
in entering the church, or wherever the
ceremony is to be performed. Her dress
must be a little more elaborate than that
of the bridesmaids, but not of course as
rich as the bride's. When the altar is
reached she stands just beside the bride,
holding her bouquet. At the moment
when the ring is to be assumed she hands
the bouquet to the first bridesmaid, and
assists the bride in taking off her glove.
ATI this time the bride has been standing
with her veil over her face, but just
after the service is over, when the bride
rises up after having been blessed, the
maid of honor throws back the filmy
cloud and the bride stands facing the
bridegroom and ready for his kiss. The
bouquet is then handed back to the maid
of honor, by her given to the bride, and
as the procession retreats she walks just
behind the bride and groom, leaning on
the arm of the best man. Ruth Ash

Tiot So Stupid.
The overbearing ways of drill ser
geants with new recruits are a familiar
subject of gossip in the barracks of
On one occasion a recruit a profes
sional man showed so little aptitude
for military movements that the ser-
"No," said the recruit, "I have a
brother who is a great deal more stupid
than I am."
"Possible? And what on earth does
this incomparable blockhead do?"
"He is a sergeant." Youth's Com
panion. t Savage Art True to Nature.
Singularly enough, the primitive men
in the caves of the Perigord, contempo
raries of the mammoth and the musk ox
in France, and the Bushmen, whose
paintings Herr Fritsch discovered, only
painted the animals known to them as
truly as they could, while the comjuira
tively highly civilized Aztecs outran all

belonged to a certain middle stage of
culture. Popular Science Monthly.

A Characteristic Failing.
First Preacher Does your choir sing
Second Preacher Yes; but they don't
live in harmony. Kate Field's Wash
ington. A Long Tramp.
There arrived at Richmond, Ind., re
cently a husband and wife, accompanied
by a faithful dog, who, since Nov. 1,
have walked more than 1,500 miles, and
who now find themselves within fifty
miles of their destination. The man is
John May. Since the date mentioned
he and his wife have walked every foot
of the distance from a farm in South
Dakota, and they have not cut across
lots either. They proved up a claim in
South Dakota, and experienced the hard
ships that thousands of other early set
tlers in the northwest went through
with. Fate seemed turned against
them, and after they had lost almost
everything on their place they secured
a few dollars and started on the long
tramp that is now almost ended.
Their destination is Dayton, O:) and
today they refused assistance from char
itable people who offered to pay their
car fare there, saying they preferred not
to break their record and would com
plete the journey on foot. The man is
twenty -eight years of age, the wife a
j-ear younger, and they have been mar
ried but tlrree years. After leaving
Dakota they walked through Iowa,
Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, ending their
journey in Ohio. Cor. St. Louis Globe
