Mors than twenty yea ago I fell in with
Professor Comebody or Other, who was
a Professor of Something or Other, and he
brought up the subject of transmigra
tion. We were traveling la a stagecoach,
and expected to be held up at every mile,
and I also had the jumping toothache.
For these reasons I didn't argue the mat
ter with him, and because I had no chance
to argue I was more than half satisfied
of the correctness of the theory as ex
pounded by him.
"Yes, gentlemen," said the professor, as
we took a short cut over a windfall to
void three "agents" waiting at a bend in
the road with bated breath, "every one of
us will simply take on a new form after
death. There is man right here among
us who will 'probably be changed into a
fat woman or an ossified man, and you
will see him exhibited at a dime museumf
I knew he meant me. Everybody knew
it. He was looking right at me as he said
it. I didn't believe it at first, but as time
went on the idea became stronger and
stronger, and for the last seventeen yean
I have felt that I had that fate in store for
me. I have dreamed that I was a fat wom
an advertised as weighing 750 pounds, and
I have dreamed that I was an ossified man,
with the public feeling of my toes and
Angers and asking me for a leg or an arm
as a relic to label and lay away in a parlor
cabinet. Many a morning I have awoke
under the impression that I was ten min
utes late for the first forenoon exhibition,
and many an evening I have started up
from my chair with a feeling that I had
been fined five dollars by the manager for
absenting myself from the platform before
the show was over.
However, I am relieved at last. I have
taken more real comfort in the last week
than for a dozen years before. I went over
into the Bowery, in New York, several
days ago, with a determination to know
the worst and prepare for it, and the result
was a gratifying surprise. I found the
champion fat woman on a museum plat
form. She looked exactly as I had dreamed
that I would look. Those 750 pounds of
fat were draped aba . the most
artistic manner, and a er from Troy
was asking her how she managed to climb
the trees in harvest apple time. . For five
minutes I felt that I had died and been
. transmigrated. Then the Troy man went
wandering around to see if he could find a
Troy laundry among the curios, and I
stepped forward and told the fat woman
. the whole story from beginning to end.
"Don't yur believe 1?' she emphatically
replied when I had finished. "If such a
thing were possible, how is it, with so
many hundreds dying around us every
'day, that there are only six of us champion
fat women now in the business? If there
was anything in the theory there'd be 10,
000 of us looking f oi engagements and sal
aries would go down until a fat woman
couldn't earn her salt."
- I thanked her from the bottom of my
heart, and she kindly continued:
"But even if it were possible, which I
give you my word of honor it isn't, you
wouldn't be so badly off. There's lots of
things worse than being a fat woman at a
thumping big salary. You are the star at-

traction. The Zulu and the anaconda and
the ossified man are not in it. . If a bit
giddy you can always have a flirtation on
hand: if past the giddy age you have lots
of time to do plain sewing and visit with
the giantess. Don't be upset, sir. While
you can't possibly be transmigrated into a
fat woman, requiring a whole car to her
self when she travels, and who has ap
peared before her majesty on three differ
ent occasions, if it should so be, then don't
throw it over your shoulder. You have
got a good thing of it and will never have
a regret." ... .
I couldn't tell her how happy I felt, bat
she'had a sensitive nature and understood.
Then I went over and repeated my story f
the ossified man. He never once intc
rupted me, but when I had finished he
"You have been stuffed. While It e
no stock in stuffed specimens, I agree vt
the fat woman that it can never be. O

could be turned into an ossified man

If you'll take the word of a man who
been a star attraction for thirty years, y
need do no more worrying. "
I tried to make him realize how thank
ful I was, and he smiled an ossified smile
"That's all right. I'm glad you came to
me about it; you ought to hunt down that
professor and kill him. I say it can't be,
but if by any possibility it should be, you
will be expected, as an ossified man, to
stick for regular rates and kick against
over four performances on Sunday. Make
no engagement for less than two weeks,
and stipulate that you are to be carried up
and down stairs where there are no ele
vators. As an ossified man, be content.
There's money in it, and no sawing wood.
Maintain your dignity with the Albino,
have no flirtations with the tattooed girl,
and should the fat woman attempt to be
patronizing, at once remind her that an
ossified man was the beginning of the
whole museum business, and that no show
could run for a week without him."

BROTHER GARDNER ON VANITY.
He Gives Some Personal Facts to Sub
stantiate Hi Theories.
"I has bin keepin track o' things fur a
rood manv v'ars past," said Brother Gard
ner as he arose and looked around the hall,
"an I has cum to de conclushun dat a big
sheer of our trubbles am solely due to van

tdder people on airth. Many members of
lis club cum to me wid deir trubbles aa
tribulashuns, an in nine cases out o' ten I
kin trace de cause back to Vanity."
The president paused here to consult the
thermometer hanging near, and after bit
ing that it recorded 102 degs. above, he
"Take de case of Elder Toots, for in

him. He bought f o' boxes of paper collars
at one time; he ordered ice cream fur Sun
day; he 'lowed his wife to gin a high tea
on her birthday; he eben dun rented a pi
ano at five dollars per month fur his gal
'Liza to drum on. In jest six weeks de el
der, as yo' all know, was knocked out an
appealin to dis club to lend him money to
git his dawg out o' de pound."
The elder, who occupied one of the front
stools, blew his nose and wiped his eyes
and evidently felt broken up, and Brother
Gardner went on:
"Take de case of Samuel Shin. Nobody
in dis world thought him anything mo'
dan common. He was sort o' scrubbin
around on two dollars a week an mighty
glad to git a squar1 meal, when his aunt
down in Arkansas died an left him twenty
seven dollars in cash. De minit Samuel
got hold of dat money a great change dun
cum ober him. He walked up an down
befo' de banks; he talked of rentin a box
in the possoffice; he priced obercoats as
high as sixty dollars. I advised him to
hide dem twenty-seven dollars in an oyster
can 'till he had got ober de shock of sudden
wealth, but Vanity wouldn't 'low him to.
He plunged. He reckoned dat he could
buy half de airth. He carried hisself as
stiff as a poker, an he wouldn't speak to
sartin members of dis club who doan' w'ar
alligator sWs. Whar' am Brudder Shin
now? Vanity wrecked him.' 'H sits ober
dar by de alley doah, crashed, broken aa
aebia to aak Giveadam Jones to lend him
nine acuta to make a new start ia life."
Samuel hung bis bead to escape observa
tion, and several members acted aa if they
would like to get outdoors before anything
farther was heard to drop.
"Waydowa Rehna, our secretary, am not
yere dis eavenin,w observed the president,
as he glanced over at the spot usually oc
cupied by that individual.' "Am bis wife

Brother Gardner stopped him and said:
"One mo' case dat of Kurnel Johnson.

so well dat heaps o' folks was jealous of
him. Had he kept right on be would have

body diskivered de fact dat his ha'r was

Dat settled him. He quit his job an walked
around arm in arm wid Vanity. He let
his wife buy lace curtains and plush kiv
ered cheers, an be hung around de city
hall an gin his views on de Chilian questi
on. His career was brief. If de city ball
was offered him tomorrer for a dime he
couldn't raise de cash."
The colonel got up to make some sort of
reply, but words failed him and he re
sumed bis seat witb a bang and struggled
with something which appeared like emo
tion, but might have been colic.
"Darfo' I say to you, an I say it in all
airnestness," concluded the president, "to
bewar" of Vanity. It am wuss dan a thief

fur only half a day, but Vanity takes pos

call to bs purty or proud, and de world
doan' keer whether we sot down at home

in consideration of the fact that
many of the ablest statesmen in
America hold diametrically opposite
opinions upon ' the silver question, it
is not surprising that the average
man, who has not devoted much of
his time to the subject; is not ashamed
to confers that he , knows nothing
about it It is not probable that he
would be perfectly convinced, for or
against free coinage, if he read all
the editorials upon the subject in all
the American journals. Should he,
however, read the opinions of the men
who handle the exchange of the world,
and who may safely be regarded as
the moat capable financiers in the
world, says the Bozeman Chronicle,
he would be impressed by their unan
imity on the Subject Owing to the
semi-barbarous -fiscal policy of the
United States, in shutting itself out
from the markets of the world by
high tariffs, we must to to the other
lands to find the men who 'handle the
exchange of the world, and who are
capable of judging of the effects of a
contraction of currency. On June 18th,
1X86, a committee of the ablest finan
ciers in England addressed a report to
the queen, drawing attention to the
disastrous effects of the demonetiza
tion of silver in 1871. The reports
embodied the opinions of the chief of
ficers of the Bank of England, banks
of India, China and Australia, and
many others equally capable of giving
information on the subject Though
the opinions were collected by corre
spondence from all parts of the world,
the opinions, or rather statements of
effects, were practically the same, in
substance as follows:
The diminution in the world's pro
duct of gold, enormously aggravated
by the demonetization of silver, caused
a serious decline in the price of com
modities. The appreciation of gold
when set as the standard of values had
a disastrous effect on trade, meaning
declining prices for commodities, and
when prices are continuously declin
ing, all enterprise is banished from
trade. There is no inducement for the
investment of capital in enterprises
under such conditions, and trade may
be expected to stagnate.
The Glasgow chamber of commerce
reported that from 1873 to 1886 it re
quired an amount of gold equal to
twenty year's production, to supply
Germany, Italy and the United States
with a new gold currency, allowing
for what is consumed in the arts.
France, India and other countries ab
sorb and retain large quantities of
gold annually. The supply is utterly
inadequate for the requirements of
trado, and prices of commodities and
wages must continue to decline. Noth
ing can restore the profitable charac
ter of the enormous trade of England
with silver using countries but a res
storatlon of the former ration, the
gold standard being utterly unsuited
to a manufacturing nation.
India has maintained her silver
standard, and notwithstanding tha de
cline in silver elsewhere, the rupee
would bring as much in India as be
fore, yot the exchange value of the
rupee In England in 1886, had fallen
20 per cent, so that a dealer in Eng
land, by purchasing Indian rupees
with his go'd, and then buying wheat
in India with rupees at par, could
bring in India wheat a bonus of Z0 per
cent over the cost of production. This
gives the Englishman cheap bread,
but at the cost ol the destruction of
the agricultural interests of Europe
and the United States. Should silver
fall lower, so would wheat, and cot
ton, which In 1886 had reached the
lowest notch ever known. The finan
ciers in that year predicted that if sil
ver would fall Cd per ounce, half the
mills in Lancashire would close. It

were nearly fulfilled. It rose 5d In
1890 but fell back in 1891-2, 'and

America and the development of In
dia as the chief wheat and cotton ex

against England's aiding America to
restore the value of silver at the ex
pense of the interests of India. '1 he
meeting, however, resolved by a vo e
of twenty-eight to fifteen that the re

The Preamble to Ihs Platform and the
Declaration of InipBdnc.
The industrial conference which
convened in St Louis on February 22nd
is a part of history, and wo may say
it has brightened up the pages of the
present In no wise were we deceived
as to the result of that conference, un
less it was our hopes wero not sanguine
enough of perfect harmony. The pro
ceedings tell a wonderful tale. The
quill of the opposition press has grown
nervous and politicians stand dumb
founded that so many industrial organ
izations representing the interest of
every class of producers, including the
city mechanics and farm laborers,
should come together with such fra
ternal greetings and sing of their dis
tress in such harmonious tones. Plu
tocracy prayed for the seeds of discord,
which, if sown at all, fell by' the way
side or upon stony ground.
' As to the platform, the preamble is
a most powerful indictment of present
injustices, equaled only by the declar
ation of independence of 1776. The
finance plank was somewhat modified
for the better, we think, says the
Toiler. The transportation plank was
changed in obedience to the demand
of the inevitable; it now takes an ad
vanced step, soon to be followed by
the clamoring masses. It has been
the correct theory, but forced to await
its opportunity as presented by educa
tion. Thomas Jefferson is the best
authority that all institutions intended
to serve the public should be owned
by the government The government
shoula obtain, by a judicious method,
the railroads and telegraph lines of
the country and operate them as sys
tematically as it does the postal sys
tem. Let the employes be disfran
chised, as are the morabers.of the army
and navy, and it will not form a com
bine behind an administration. It will
prove a much better system than the
present, by which the giant monopo
lies have a vast hoard of employes
armed with a ballot to form a combine
at their backs The advantage is very
apparent, and nothing short of owner
ship will cure the abuses of discrimi
nation in freights.
The cause of reform in the South
won quite a victory through the gen
erous concessions of the Northwest on
the points of woman's suffrage
and prohibition. Many zealous advo
cates of these ideas were willing to
admit that finance, land and transpor
tation had the right of way, and that
the chances of these great reforms
should not be retarded by side issues.
Some who were over zealous in the
cause pushed the fight into the coun
cil, where the overwhelming majority
said, "Keep in the middle of the road."
Some thought it wise for the confer
ence to declare for the People's party,
but abandoned their plan when the in
consistency ras shown. The mass
meeting, which convened upon the ad
journment of the conference, while it
bound no organization nor individual,
will havo a wonderful effect upon the
Upon the whole the conference
promises to prove the beginning of a
united and determined effort to rid our
country of all blood-thirsty monopo
lies. It points its finger backward to
the abandoned precedents of our fath
ers and forward to the gaping abyss
across our country s pathway. The
platform makes its own appeal to un
biased intelligence, and for this reason
we may hope to see a mighty uprising
and a wonderful protest registered at
the ballot box in 1K92.
The Alliance Herald: It would seem
that the prospects which confront the
farmers should impress the merchants,
who are dependent upon them for their
prosperity, that it is anoui time lor
tbem to investigate the ways and
means for restoring prosperity to the
farmer, for that will assure general
prosperity to the country. Instead or
this, thev are united almost solidly
against every reform sought for tho
promotion of the masses, and , thereby
aiding and abetting the English sys
tem to still further impoverish and
damage the Interests of farmers. It
would seem that the number of laii
ures reported each week would im
press merchants with the demand that
a change is needed, and badly needed,
as much in 1 their interest as for the
benefit of fawners.
