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 of Ohio. 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. These were: 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 was forthcoming. 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 line. 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 mangled remains. 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?" "Yes'm." "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.

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 that is oriental in abominable inven tions. It almost seems as if bad taste belonged to a certain middle stage of culture. Popular Science Monthly. How He Preserved His Eyes.

A Characteristic Failing. First Preacher Does your choir sing in harmony? 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 Democmt. F. G.
