One leap year night, many
year ago, I found lodgings in the cabin of
a Tennessee mountain widow. Next day,
when I was ready to resume my journey,
she stood before me and said:
"I am thirty-two years old, good tem-

money matters. I have been a widow for
two years and am tired of it. Will yoa
Wasn't that nice? Could any man have
asked for anything better? I took her
band and told her how sorry I was that I
already had a wife, and therefore couldn't
entertain her proposal. We couldn't marry
just then, but I'd put her name down at
the head of the list and give her the first
show. I was living in a house next to a
church with a tall steeple which wobbled
when the wintsTblew, and there was no tell
ing when that steeple would fall and make
me a widower.
The widow flew mad. She also flew for
a shotgun. I likewise flew away. That's
the trouble with the sex. When one of
them is rejected she takes it too much at
heart. . Instead of gracefully walking away
to pine and droop and go into a decline,
they want to pull hair and raise a row.
On the second occasion I was seated on a
veranda in the summer twilight with an
old maid. I was not there to press her soft,
white hand and tell her that one little
word from her would make me the happi
est man in all creation. I was thereto
offer her two dollars cash down for a dog,
which I proposed to take out and kill with
out an hour's delay. Susan suddenly cud
died up to me, and said that she had loved
me for years, but feared to break the joy
ful tidings. She could stand it no longer.
Without me life would be as dark as down
cellar at midnight; if I would have her,
the world would at once approach paradise
within S per cent. I hung off till I found
that 6he wanted fifty dollars for the dog,
and then I told her that she had spoken
too late. Only ten minutes before I reached
her side another girl had asked me to be
hers, and I had given her a promise iu
writing. We would be brother and sister.
She might sit in our pew at church and
play with our children, but I
I gave her a splendid opportunity to re
tire with honor, but she wouldn't take it.

aged that miserable dog to follow and har
ass me and jump me over fences. I cannot
believe that she truly loved me, and would
have given me the tender care and protec
tion a husband expects.
I HER LEAP TEAR PROPOSAL,
i On the third occasion I was driving over
a highway in the state of Illinois. Along,
lank girl, with pink sunbonnet and bare
feet, and carrying a piece of sassafras root
in her queenly left hand, suddenly jumped
the rail fence from a corn field and stoed
before me in an agitated state. I had
only to glance into her beautiful orbs to
read the truth she loved me! How long
she had been at it I can't say, for girls are
verv deceptive about these matters, but
probably a long time ever since the old
horse raised the dust two miles away. I
knew what was coming, and my cheeks
were suffused with blushes and my heart
beat tumultuously. I don't think she
read my answer in my eyes, for I was wear
ing blue goggles, but in pity I tried to stop
her. It was no use, however. She put one
foot on the hub of a fore wheel, gave me
half of the sassafras root and said:
"Stranger, I'm old Bill Johnson's daugh
ter Sal, twenty years old, sound as a brick,
and I can hoe moce corn, cut more grass
and plant a bigger 'tater patch in one day
than any man in the county. What do you
say to hitchin up with mef"
i I tried to appear coy, and pretended not
to understand her, and she brought her
hand down "spat!" on the old horse, killed
a big horsefly and continued:
i "It's leap year, and I'm goin to git a
husband or bust! Here she is, stranger,
right from the shoulder will you have
' Although fully expecting the proposal,
I had to place both hands over my heart to
prevent the belt slipping off. In a broken
voice, with frequent pauses for breath, I
told her that it could never, never be. That
steeple no longer wobbled, having been
braced anew, and the future held out no
bright, hope. It grieved me to reject her
love, but I had to do it. She must have
realized how much in earnest I was, and
how pailful it was to go back on a girl
six feet long, and for a time she was pen
sive and thoughtful. It was her first offer,
and to lie rejected was like the stab
of a knife. By and by, however, she ral
lied from the blow. She bit off about
three inches of the root tor a new quid,
kicked a horsefly off the hind leg of old
Dobbin, and forgivingly said:
"Wall, old man, I'm going to let you off,
owin to circumstances, but that tin ped
dler comin up the road is my mutton or
you'll hear of a tragedy!"
T-at evening the tin peddler drove into
the village where I was stopping, and I
made some inquiries. He was a doomed
man. He had promised to be hers, and her
old dad was guarding the road out of town
with a gun to see that he didn't escape.

the Liveliest Paper In the
- Great West.
I A Word in Kixdkess. Two days ago
fcis houir the mayor (which is ourself) re
ceived a written communication from the
leader of Major Throckmorton's gang of
cowboys to the effect that he was coming
in with his crowd at an early date to cap
ture and hol the town and have some
fun. His honor was advised not to inter
fere with the programme, it he desired to
live on and continue to enjoy the best cli
mate in the world.
We wish, as editor of The Kioker and
mayor of the town (elected by a large ma
jority), to say a word or. two ia kindness to
this crowd. As editor we have always ex
tended a warm welcome to the boys, and
' oa two or three occasion w have mounted
nnr mule and "done" the town with them.
But things have changed. As editor we
could do things which weald be baneat
the dignity of the Kajer, Va uiewi eaa
coma in and shoot Tn Eicui office full
of holes, bat their fun miut stop right
there. As mayor we have a duty to per
ioral, and shall perform it. If the boys at
tempt to take the town we shall rally our
body guard and wipe out as many of them
as possible. We shall shoot to kill, and
we can positively guarantee that from six
to ten of the gang will be left on the street
and buried at the expense of the town.
This town can't be run by outsiders. It
can't be run except according to the rule
and ordinances laid down.
OCT WITH THE BOTH.
We want the cowboys to get all possible
enjoyment out of life, and we want every
citizen of the town to feel and realize that
it is good to be here, even if they are dead
broke half the time, but there must be a
limit to the game. The gang who attempts
to monkey with the peace and order of this
burg will find eight two handed shooters
on deck and loaded to the chin, and if any
get away it won't be our fault.
Told Him So. On Wednesday night at
about 11 o'clock we were aroused from
peaceful slumbers by Major Turner tap
ping on the alley window and informing us
that the boys were going to hang Shoshone
Bill and wanted our rope and our assistance.
We were speedily dressed and en route with
the major to the usual spot. Three weeks
ago we dropped a gentle hint to Bill in our
local columns that he had struck the
wrong town and ought to move on. He
sent us word that we were off our feed
and hadn't sized him up correctly. We
were pretty well satisfied that our diagno
sis was correct and that the boys would soon
take a hand in, and we were right Sho
shone Bill was in the care of thirty deter
mined men, and like the average bluffer
his sand was all gone. As editor of The
Kicker we brought a rope, but as mayor
we advised the boys to give Bill one more
chance. He was elevated and lowered
times enough to give him a fair idea of
what a regular hanging would be. and
then set free and headed to the west and
told to travel He didn't stop to ask any
questions about the route, and there is no
fear of his return.
The Kicker has never made a mistake
on a man yet When a chap who thinks he
is a bad man and goes bluffing around with
a chip on his shoulder sees a double leaded
notice in our local columns to the effect
that land can be had further west at fifty
cents an acre, he should take it as a hint
and start out to look for a farm. Those
who have been obstinate about it have met
with a surprise which was both sudden
Don't Want It. Our contemporary
down the street, failing to make the pub
lic believe that we had to leave Connecti
cut for stealing a cow, now charges us with
seeking to assassinate the postmaster of
this town so as to secure his place. We
could not secure the appointment even
should he resign in our favor. The Kicker
and Mr. Wanamaker have always been an
tagonistic. We don't like his way of run
ning things, and he refuses to subscribe
for our paper. There is a yawning gulf
between us, and neither of us cares a con
tinental cocked hat for the other.
True, we have shot the postmaster three
times, on three different occasions, and he
has shot at us at least a dozen times, but
those were side issues. No one can make
him believe we want his place, and we re
fuse to believe that he inspired the article
referred to. We shall probably shoot him
again within a month if our mail is not de
livered more promptly, but he will under
stand our motive and do us full justice.
THE MAN WHO SUSPECTED IT.
He Wanted to Go Home Free from
No one would have noticed him as he sat
in the waiting room of the Erie depot with
a satchel between his feet but for his
cough. He was about fifty years old,
plainly dressed and his cough was a cross
between the sound of a horse fiddle and the
roar of an enraged lion. On a still day it
could have been heard almost across the
state of Rhode Island. It lasted about
three minutes and it moved him about five
feet along the bench on which he was sit-

ting. When he had finished he turned to
a man who seemed anxious about his con
dition, and said:
" 'Scuse me, but I can't help it; I've had
this cough for ten years."
"Can't you cure it?" asked the ether.
"No. Spent over $500 and it ain't no bet
ter. 'Tam't no cough from catchin cold ox
anvthins of that sort. I swallered sun-
thin in my sleep and it lodged down there
somewhere. I shan't git no better till i

He stood up and be sat down again, tie

right and the left. Every one who saw
him expected to see mm explode ana fly in

in front of him, and the man who had been

and I congratulate you."

IS NOW ON.
Are Determined on Reform
Having been thrown of late with
many of the farmers of this and other
sections of the state, says a writer in
the Southern Alliance Farmer, I find
a deep seated conviction of wrong pre
vailing in every community, nor is
this Bentiment confined exclusively to
the farmers, but pervades all classes.
1 am p!e:sed to find that this leollng
is manifesting' itself in a non-partisan
spirit, no big demonstrations, no
whooping up this or that man; meas
ures not men is the silent watchword
of these horny sons of toil. They are
terribly in earnest; and realize to the
fullest extent that political parties are
not created to rule the people, but for
the use of the people, through which
they may advance such political prin
ciples and measures of government
as will serve and protect all, especially
those who are in greatest need of pro
tection. There is no doubt but the
country is in a worse condition finan
cially than at any time since the war.
My space ia necessarily too limited to
embrace the detail of wrongs which
have been imposed upon the people
for the last twenty-five years, and for
which the two old parties are held re
sponsible, and as neither have the
courage, or having the courage, lack
the disposition to combat the wrong, a
new party, that of the people, has
sprung into existence, possessing both
the courage and disposition, it has
taken firm root on our soil, and is
rapiiiiy spreading throughout the
state, aafi its ranks are being aug

ance men, but by tnose outside the

which would have been decided in
favor of the people years ago had
there been no "axes to grind." Spring
ing the tariff question at this time is
but a subterfuge of the bosses to dis
tract the minds of the people. The
money question is the absorbing theme
at this time, and paramount to all
others. Edmund Burk was right when
he said 'that some of the important
convulsions in society have grown out
of money questions." There is no good
reason why the United States treasury
should be run in the interest of the
robber barons of Wall street as it has
been for tbe last quarter of a century.

that great apostle of Democratic prin

that bank notes should be suppressed

Our people are getting their eyes
opened to the tricks, duplicity and
selfish cunning of mere party manage
ment; and are being educated a little
too fast to suit some of tbe political
hucksters; they have spelled the word

class, and don't propose to be turned

the countries on earth ours ought to
be the most prosperous, happy, and

The farmers all over the country
are being urged to curtail their cotton
crop as over production Is the caue
of our great financial depression,
when there is not a word of truth in
the assertion. I'lace a sufficient
amount of money in circulation to
meet the demands of trade, and every
yard of cotton goods will be at once
utilised; and la less than one month
otton would go to fifteen cents per
pound. Let some of the commission
men who have so much to say about
overproduction visit the homes in the
country, and look at the old patched
clothes being worn by the farmers,
and watch their poor overtaxed wives
after the arduous labors of the day
are finished sitting up late at night
renovating dilapidated garments that
ought long ago to have been con
signed to the rag bag. and they will
at once see that this howl about over
production is a phantom. There is
no use in trying to disguise the fact,
the war Is on. and it Is the last chance
the poor overburdened farmers will
ever have to extricate themselves and
their posterity from the shackles
of serfdom. The wretched state of
finances of this country has aii been
brought about by a few capitalists
robbers, working in harmony and
conjunction with their confederates in
Europe to control the financial policy
of our government and rob tbe pro
ducing classes. The inequalities in
society are widening every day, and
without a change will ultimately end
in the complete subjugation of the
masses to the despotic rule of capital,
or in one of the bloodiest revolutions
the world has ever seen. Our enemy
is in the ballot, let u reform it and
pledge ourselves that we will only
sustain such party as will subscribe to
the reform outlined in the Ocala
demands. Every effort should be made
to keep down contention and strife in
our ranks; then with a long pull, a
strong pull and a pull altogether, we
will succeed In the great object we
have set out to accomplish, which is
embodied in two. simple sentences,

Our hypothecation of the subject
based upon the authority at hand,
leads us to believe that intrinsic value
depends upon the same property or
properties wherein it is found to exist
i ., that property or those properties
which renders a substance or thing
useful or applicable to the wantu of
society. These qualities are inherent
and natural, hence Inalienable and in
separable from the thing.
However, common consent and years
of custom have somewhat corrupted
the application of the term value, us,
the commercial value of an article, or
the coinage value of gold and silver,
eta Since commerce does not regu
late values, that which a thing sells
for in the market is simply its price,
and cannot be termed nor bears no
relationship to its value, as it fre
quently occurs that the price of a
thing is sometimes more and at other
times less than its real or lntriusio
value. Nor does the coinage of gold
and silver create what Is known as its
coluage value, for by Its coinage it is
simply made a symbol or representa
tive of value. Its real value has not
been increased by tho procesj. but it
has been decreased to the amount of
metal necessarily wasted In the opera
Therefore, if we pursue the subject
of value to a philosophical end, we
find that there is but ono kind of value
and that is intrinsic value. Since man
cannot create those properties upon
which value depends, it appears very
plain that he cannot croato a value.

plicable without destroying the sub-
Btance or thing itself, ror example.
we take a bushel of wheat or a barrel
or pork, two things which possess in
trinsic value. Now let us conceive a
combination of circumstances which
would render them utterly worthless
in a commercial sense circumstances
which would make it impossible to
sell or exchange them for anything.
Now has their value been destroyed
or impaired? Not in the least Al
though worthless in market their
power of doing good remains the same,
hence their value has not been af
Manifestly, therefore, it appears as
if there was but few things which do
not possess, to a greater or less de
gree, intrinsic value. The percent
age of value varies of course to corre
spond with the usefulness of the thing,
but it is neverthe less a value.
Gold and silver, likewise, teing in
capable of rusting or corroding, are
therefore eminently fitted for many
purposes other than coiu, which must
therefore give them a certain amount
of intrinsic value. It is evident
however, that their value would be
infinitesimal and trifling when com
pared with some of the baser metals,
still if we could destroy both their
coinage and commercial values, they
would still be used in many ways and
this fact would certainly attach to
them a certain amount of intrinsio
value. Alliance Tribune.

Hta story was very edifying. The

we want so bad as gold. We have a

California bank telegraphed, "We

New York bank telegraphed back,
"Done." The California bank tele
graphed, "Tie up those bonds, keep
them for us, and we will tie up the

Thereupon the New York bank
took out $1,000,000 worth, par value,
