A FAIRY STORY.
An Intrreatlnsr Slorj- l- an Old-Kaah-loneil
A certain giant being out at elbows
went to Court to lind employment; and
all the Court would have laughed at
him had they dared, he cut such a
queer figure with his long beard and
his great pipe that he was forever
smoking. The King, however, thought
It no laughing matter, for here was a
fellow that could kick a fellow over
his palace. If he happeued to get in a
rage; and what in the world could
they find for this great clumsy mon
ster to do? So he called all the wise
men in the kingdom, and they sat in

It required many yards of cloth, you
may be sure, to make a suit for this
astonished page, and a whole cartload
of buttons: for yon see they had but

jacket, and on his cap and sleeves, and
they would have had one on his nose.
I believe, if they could have sewed

Off raced the giant, ten steps at a
time, but when he came to the court
everybody said "Ssh! ssh! don't make
such a noise: the Dame of the Slippers

he got to the hog just in time to see the

A (ilnnt Oak In California That Hung
There is in California, in Calaveras
county, a tree from which forty men
into the hal!. J have been hanged.
Hangman's oak, as it is called, is on
a level tract of land close to the side
of the old road between Milton and
Copperopolis. It is naturally one of
the most famous monuments of that
part of the country.
The tree stands by the roadside and
a great branch stretches over the high
way, brown and bare, save for a little
clump of foliage at its end.
According to the San Francisco Call,
when the tree first sprang into fame
Stockton was known to the miners as
Tuleville, and the hills around Copper
opolis were tilled with camps that bore
musical names, such as Kagtown or
Whisky Chute. The tree was an old
one then, so that it must by this time
have seen nearly a century of life.
There was no more ceremony attend
ing an execution on the llangmans
Oak than was gone through with in
other parts of the state at about the
same time. The culprit was taken to
the simt in the handiest way. Some
times in a wagon and at others he wa3
compelled to sustain his balance on
the soft .side of a rail carried on the
shoulders of the executioners. When

was fastened to the limb above his
head. Sometimes when they wanted
to give a man a good "drop" he was
made to stand on a box or oairel
i placed on'the end of the wavj n.
The most famous crop which the
"hangman's tree" has ever o.-n? was
reaped in the early fifties. On this oc
casion a man had been excutd just

Who Can Solve It?

A traveler carried a cabbage, and
led along a wolf and goat until he
came to a river with a ferry cross
There, however, he found the ferry -loat
so small that It would only hold
himself and the cabbage, or himself

As long as he was near the goat or
wolf all was well, but if he left them
by themselves for a moment the wolf
would eat the goat, or the goat would
eat the cabbage.
He was thus in a dilemma, for It
seemed impossible to cross the river

flat-footed, unqualified declarations for
the gold standard.
Twenty-three years ago that standard
was fastened upon the people of the
United States and a large part of
Europe. Almost immediately prices
began to fall, business depression began,
and there was an almost universal cry
of hard times. Some classes in New
York and Massachuestts (the money
lenders, and business men occupying
positions of exceptional advantage)
have prospered; but with the great
army of toilers and producers, there has
been scarcely a glimmer of sunshine.
Each succeeding year has found them
a little poorer, with their load of debt
increasing, their ability to pay di
minishing, and with an almost hopeless
future staring them in the face.
Property values in the United States
are very little, if any, more than halt

standard of measurement had been pre

ergetic campaign in the west to beat

invade Chicago, and from good author
ity we are told that President Cleveland
has written personal letters to such
men as Lyman J. Gage, urging them
to action. We haven't heard at thi?
writing whether or not Governor Alt

have received any communication from
Grover upon this question. Shades of
Jefferson! Here we have a president
who does not trust the people to decide
for themselves what legislation is nec

subject to the dictates of Wall street,
or an independent people? The people
of Illinois and of the great West, we are
sure, have the ability to think for them
selves without the aid of Grover Cleve

are opposed to the restoration of silver
say that the silver cause is on the de

misguided friends of "honest(?) money"

which trusted In themselves that they were
righteous, and despised others:
10. Two men went up Into the temple to
pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a
11. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus
with himself. God. T thank thee, that I am not
as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adul
terers, or even as this publican.
12. I fas twice in the week. I give tithes
of all that I possess.
13. And the publican, standing afar on.
would not lift up so much as his eyes unto
heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying.
God me merciful to me a sinner.
14. I tell you. this man went down to his
house Justified rather than the other: for
every one that exalteth himself shall be
abased: and he that humbleth himself shall
15. And thev brought unto him also Infants,
that he would touch them: but when his dis
ciples saw It, they rebuked them.
1ft. But Jesus called them unto him. and
said. Suffer little children to come unto me.
and forbid them not: for of such Is the king
dom of God.
17. Verily I say unto you. Whosoever shall
not receive the klmdom of God as a little
child shall In no wise enter therein.
Some explanations are as follows:
9. "Certain which trusted in themselvea
that they were righteous." "There Is a gen
eration that are pure in their own eyes, and
yet is not washed from their filthiness." "And
despised others." the tendency of self-righteousness
Is to look down upon others.
10. "Two men went un Into the temple.
he acknowledged place of prayer. "One a
Pharisee." the highest, most respectable class
among the Jews.
11. "Stood." the ordinary attitude of prayer.
"Prayed thus with himself." Either by him
self, apart from others, or he was congratu
lating himself on his goodness, rather than
praying to God. "God. T thank thee." It was
well to be thankfnl. but his thanksgiving was
pride and boasting. In the name of gratitude.
"That I am not as other men." the rest of
mankind. He Is In a class by himself, and
all other men were far below him. "Extor
tioners." very common, especially among the
publicans. "Or even as this publican." And

He made fasting a virtue. Instead of a means

He was exceedingly particular as to outward
forms, and made this a substitute for real
virtues, as to which he was careless, or which
he did not wish to practice. He tithed mint
and anise, but had no love to God.
