! It has been understood for some time
past that Shindig Walking, of theJJme
kiln club, was going to remove to Colum
bus, O., where inducements were held out
for him to open a stand for the sale of old
fashioned pumpkin pies and fried cakes.
At the last regular meeting of the club,
after the transaction of routine business,
Brother Gardner called Shindig to the
front and said:
i "Brudder Watkins, I'ze bin told dat yo'
talk o' lea bin us."
"Gwine down to Ohio to sot up In bizness
I "Wall, dis club will miss yo', an each
member will be sorry to see yo' go. While
yo' am not a brilliant man, neither hev yo
spit on de stove nor broken any lamp chim
neys. As dis am de last meetin befo' yo'r
departnr', I wish to say a few fatherly
words to yo'."
! "Yes. sah."
"In de fust place, pay up all yo'r debts
befo yo' start. Had Cicero left Rome
owin fur house rent, groceries, bacon an
so on, he could nebber hev achieved great
ness. In de nex' place, if yo' hev bin mad
at anybody kase yo' couldn't agree about
de aige of Noah when be entered de ark,
go to him an offer yo'r hand an make
, "I has dun it, sah," replied Shindig.
"Doan go down to Ohio feelin dat yo"
am doin de stait a great favor by comin,
an doan' attempt to put on style ober de
people yo' meet. If yo' had nebber bin
J "A FEW FATHERLY WORD?,"
bo'n inta tlis world de stait of Ohio Would
Lev got along jistde same. She wants yo'r
puiJkin pies an yo'r fried cakes, but she
wouldn't bust up if she didn't git 'em. It
will, of co'we, be known dat yo' am a mem
ber of dis Limekiln club, and aldermen,
judges an eben de guv'nor will stop to
shake hands wid yo'. Doan' let yo'self git
swelled up wid pride. Be jest proud 'null
to go right on tendin to bizness, but not
proud 'miff to bust to pieces like a biler
carryin too much steam."
1 "Yes, sah," answered Shindig.
: "Doan' land In Columbus wid any per
tickler motto on yo'r banner. 'Excelsior
is a werry good motto, but it seldom pans
out anythin which de owner feels proud of.
Mottoes war all right two hundred y'ars
ago, when land was cheap an yo' could
wote as often as yo' wanted to on 'leckshun
day, but times hev changed. In old times
honesty was de best policy, but in dese
days de man who buys a hoss am supposed
to locate all de spavins fur hisself. If yo
find dat yo' can mix a leetle squash wid
yo'r punpkin an thus save expense aa
please de people jest as well, yo' will
p'obably do so of yo'r own accord."
; "Yes, sah."
i "I doan' know how yo' stand on de ques
shnn of chickens, Brudder Watkins, but
in gwine into a new community I reckon
yo' had better go slow. Dat is, doan' let
yo'r hankerin Car chickens git de better
of yo'r discreshun. Let bacon an codfish
satisfy yo' until yo' hev looked around. Yo
are doubtless aware ofde fact dat de tor
pedo'Chicken am an Ohio invenshun, an
dat ober 50,000 of 'em am in use in dat
stait. In some cases whar de torpedo
chicken am in use yo' will find a red chalk
mark on de hencoop doah; in adders yo'
take long chances. Make no decided move
till yo' hev bin in Columbus fur at least
"I doan' keer furchicken 't all, sah," re
"Den it's all de better fur yo', Brudder
Watkins, an jist as well iux de chickens.
Now, about de society in Columbus. How
do yo' propose to start out?"
"My wife will gin a soiree soon arter we
git dnr, snh."
; "Dat's k'rect. Yo' will find three sorts
o' cull'd folkses in ebery town. De fust
strata am de waiters an barbers, de second
de whitewasl'iers an stove blackers, da
third d&common naggers who job around
by de day. Invite only de fust strata to
yo'r soiree. Yo' must hev ice cream,
'lasses candy an at least one kind o' cake.
Paper napkins will do, but yo' must not
pass water around in a tin dipper. If
yo' haven't got tumblers 'nuff den use a
couple of yalier bowks. As de host yo'
will be 'spected to w'ar white gloves, a
red necktie an a new paper cellah. If dar
am no bell on yo'r doah den hire one f

will at oace establish yo'rself in de tiut

in. Was yo' gwine to tell ebery body down
dar dat yo' was in da punpkin pie an
fried cake bigness simply to occupy yo'r
thoughts while waitiu' te invest 175,000
I "No, sah," said Shindig. "I shan't dan.

! "Dat's right. Yo' needn't tell ebery
body dat yo' only had twenty-seven dollars
left alter reaohin de town, aa yo' needn't
carry de ideah dat it makes yo' tired to
cut off yo'r coupoas. Take a sort o' mid
dle course. Pay cash fur what yo' buy,
an if de report spreads around dat yo' am

, "Yes, sah."
: "If I am not sa wtookea yoa was ataptist.
Dat religun am all right, but doan' be in a

MR. AND MRS. BOWSER.
The Moad (ho float
-Mrs. Bowser," began Mr. Bowser, aa be
laid down bis paper the other evening and
put his thumbs ia the armboles of his
rest, "on a car this afternoon I heard a
wife asking her husband about the Chilian
"Yes," replied Mrs. Bowser.
"It reminded me that you never seemed
to care what was going oa outside your
"I thought yoa didn't want to be both
ered with questions?"
"Any and every husband should always
be willing, Mrs. Bowser, to furnish his wife
information. Suppose we should be out to
a card party and the name of Diaz was
mentioned? I suppose you wouldn't know
whether he run a bank in Chicago, or was
the owner of a cattle ranch in Montana."
"He has been president of Mexico for
several years," she replied. "Is there any
thing new in the Qaaza movement?"
Mr. Bowser's face betrayed surprise as
he looked at her, but he presently observed:
"Had you asked me at any time what
overt act strained our relations with Chili,
I should have sought to make it clear to
"I have known what it wasall along. It
was the outrageous attack made on a num
ber of men from the man-of-war Baltimore
while they were ashore."
"Yes just so ahem!" stammered Mr,
Bowser, as he regarded her with the great
est astonishment. "Mrs. Bowser, no hus
band expects his wife to be posted on any
thing outside of society gossip and the
local news of the day, but should she
evince an ambition to grapple with some
thing of greater moment he ought to es
teem it a duty to post her. While on this
subject it might be well for you to ask me
any other question that happens to occur
to you. In going down tewn you may hear
the term 'reciprocity' used by a couple of
gentlemen in conversation. It is well
enough for you to know what it alludes
to, though, of course, you cannot be ex
pected to know"
"I know all about it, Mr. Bowserl" she
interrupted, "and am jiwt finishing a three
page article for The Political Economist on
that subject. I shall have it ready to read
to you tomorrow night."
Mr. Bowser stopped dead still, and there
was a wabble to his left leg as he winked
his eyes and wondered if that was Mrs.
Bowser or some strange woman. He felt
that she was getting the best of him, but
he didn't propose to admit it, and it was
with increased pomposity and assurance
that he said:
"Some husbands contend that the Lord
created woman simply to oversee the
bouse, but I am not one of them. While
you can't be expected to know as much as
I do, you can post yourself on certain mat
ters to your personal benefit. For instance,
I presume yon have at some time or other
noticed the terms 'free trade' and 'pro
tection.' They were all Greek to vou. of
course, put had you asked me to ex
plain" ' I Oil would nave done so, of course, but
there was no call for it. After three years'
careful study of the matter I think I am
pretty well posted. I have been writing a
weekly article for the last six months for
a free trade organ, and have saved them
for you to look overt"
"TOO NEVER SEEMED TO CARE."
"You you have!" he gasped, as the wab
ble was communicated to the other leg
and he had to sit down.
' "I was just writing an article this after
noon on socialism in Germany. The em
peror is taking decided steps to crush out
the spirit, but history will repeat itself.
Like the czar of Russia with the nihilists,
he will only sow further seed. Isn't that
your opinion, Mr. Bowser?"
Mr. Bowser felt that a crisis had come.
He must act, and act speedily, or he would
suffer defeat. With a mighty effort he
rose up and walked about for a minute,
and then said:
"Mrs. Bowser, while I shall always be
cheerfully willing, as I said before, to give
you all information on general topics, and
while I am pleased to note what an apt pu
pfl you are, we must not lose sight of the
fact that there has been a button off my
overcoat for the last three days, and that
there is a bole in one of my socks, and that
if I were to go up stairs this evening I
couldn't find a shirt or collar or hand
ker" "You could if you looked in your dress
er," she interrupted.
"Do not interrupt me, Mrs. Bowser!" he
said, as he waved her into vacancy. "Now
and then I shall sit down and seek to im
part some of my knowledge on general sub
jects, but don't you forget the fact that
this house has never been run on anything
like system, and that if I wasn't the most
patient and enduring husband in the
world I should have sent you home it your
mother long ago! I am now going 1 1 bed
that is; if I ean find a bed which has any
sheets or quilts on it and which is not in
use as a freight, car!"
And having finally bluCed Mia. Bowse.'
down he began to smile and look bappf
again, and before going to bed he even
sought to compliment her by saying:
"As soon as I post you up a little more
you'll be able to carry on quite an asgu
ment with an ordinary man an ordinary
man, Mrs. Bowser!"

or the day after, containing the latest news
from the editor. We do not consider the

boys were hankering to get bold of him,

by accident he fell into their hands they
would have allowed him to at least for

We think the first report is the key to
the situation. Tom Jackson has refused
to come down with his cash. The editor

he run him into the Black mountains,

have many reasons to hope that he will

There are common ties and interests
that bind all industrialists tdgether.
And these involve duties and obliga
tions that should cause all to act as
one. that should cause them to band
together, to repel the oppressor's
hand, to tear down the false gods
built upon the hills of freedom, to
save their homes and provide securi
ties against the slavery of their chil
dren, to re-establish justice, equalize
conditions and perpetuate the liberties
of the republic. The Fatherhood of
God and the brotherhood of man are
one, and they unite for the accomp
lishment of these ends. They appeal
to you to stand by the common weal
to work for the equalities of social re
lation, to realize conditions that will
promote human happiness and build
up a state where all can enjoy life aDd
have an equal chance to live comfort
able and happy. This is a heritage
that of right belongs to all and one
for which every toiler should strive.
That all do not enjoy it is because the
objects and purposes of government
have been perverted through the con
tests and manipulations of political par
ties in their insane fights for supremacy
and spoils. There should be an end
to this, and every industrialist should
contribute his full share to bring it
about Every sentiment of justice
and every impulse of fair play de

the way. Drive the godless money
changers who gamble our liberties
away in Wall street from the seats of
power and place. There is room
here for patriotism and courage to as

spread a pall over all our hopes and
prospecta Let the spirit ef justice
and patriotism eome to the rescue in
the halls of legislation and in the
arena of public debate, and cicar tbo
way for a new era of peace, good-will
and prosperity throughout the land.
Need we say to the industrialists:
Stand together. Unite wherever it is

LIBERTY. LAW AND MONEY.
Tbe War of ladrnendoaro aed I'
In tbo Journal of Agriculture-1 road
some extracts from the Century Maga
zine on ' vheap money. " that does such
violence to my conception of what the
I n i ted States repablio ought to ac
complish for tbe human family, that I
have yielded to the "moving of tbe
spirit" to reply, says a writer in the
The writer says that the economio
administration of a nation, the regu
lation of its currency and finances,
calls for expert ability of a rare kind.
"That a few have the requisite intel
lectual equipment for the task," etc.
"That the control of our finances shall
be put into the hands of a few tried
and trained financiers who shall be re
moved absolutely beyond the Influence
of popular clamor," eta
Tbe torics of 177G, believed that it
took "expert ability of a rare kind"
to exercise any of the rights of tover
eignty; it took seven years of war to
teach th rich, the "well born" and
the '-pedigreed families" of that day,
"that ail men are created equal,' that
'they are endowed by their Creator
with certain Inalienable rights, " 'that
among these are life, liberty and tho
pursuit of happiness."
It took the colonial experience, the
seven year' war and the confedera
tion experience for our wise and fur
seeing forefathers to hand down a
constitution whose preamble read,
"We. the people of the United States,
in order to secure
the blessing of liberty to ourselves
and posterity, " eta
Now was not this liberty which
thoy so prized and which they wanted
to hand down inviolate to their chil
dren, freedom from 'the control of
our finances in tho hands of a few
tried and trained financiers who shall
be removed absolutely beyond the in
fluence of popular clamor."
The 'economic administration of
our nation, the regulation of Its cur
rency and finances for the past twenty
five years will certainly fill the wishes
of the writer, We have had con
gresses composed of millionaires,
secretaries of the treasury who dos-
segsed the requisite intellectual equip- j
menu lor tbe task," and presidents
who followed as they led. All wee
removed from and uninfluenced by
popular clamor, sis shown by the man
ner in which they turned their deaf
ear to all appeals for a greater volume
of currency, a flexible currency, a
currency with which no party tinkers
could meddle, which could not be
controlled by private corporations. Is
It not true that the "people at large"
the great "crtnmon herd" have been
crowded to one side, that they have
endured the laws and financiering of
the intellectually eqaipped prodigies"
of this age until thousands of their
numbors have become tramps; until
nine millions of their homes have been
mortgaged; untidevery week the ques
tion is "How many does Dunn & Co.
say failed this week?"
Many, many of these "people at
large" went to the polls year after
year, voting for these "intellectual"
prodigies thinking their intellectuality
was w-isdom, that when tbey saw the
effects of their methods, that their
love lor the land of the free, their
loyalty to the principals that made
the stars and stripes a cherished em
blem, they would chango, they would
give the needed reforms, but have
they done soP
The writer says it is a "harmful de
lusion that government has the power
to create money." Pray who did cre
ate money t tod said nothing about
money in the tan laws he gave on Mt
Sinai. Tho eleventh law, given by
his Son was "Love ye one another."
"U6 unto others as ye would they
should do unto you" was his rule of
action, and once when the tax-gatherer
was around, Jeiius took the
money and looked at the stamp and
said: "Render unto Caesar the things
that are Caisar's. "
I find in Smith's bible dictionary
that "by public authority the metals
used in traffic were given a certain
mark, a certain weight, a certain de
gree of alloyv to fix its vulua and save
buyers ' and sellers the troub.e of
weighing" aa has been the custom.
Dr. Worcester in his umibriugod dic
tionary says that "money is applied
to whatever serves as a circulating
medium including bank notes and
dra'.'ts." Wsight says, "money is any
current token or representative of
value."' Locho said, "the value of
money is ascertained by the stamp,
which is a public voucher." As these
lexicographers finished their life work
before the "passage of the legal ten
der act of '6-'." - tbey surely could not
have been deluded by it '' L'oes it
not seem a great pity that the su
preme court of the United States
should have been so "uniastructed"
as to rend a decision "upholding the
t-iglit of congress to make euck Usue, "
thereby deceiving the -people at

Gentlemen: Tour fayor of the 12th inst. duly received. According to th
description of the wire you have used, I would say, that it is Just what we wt.
Wo have no wire nearer than N. Y., so you had better arrange for your own
wire, unless your gates are so constructed that we ean pu t on the wire without
much trouble and you allow us the difference. Make our order seventy-eight,
including the one sent to Chicago instead of seventy-five as was ordered.
Yours truly, Southwestern- Steii. Post Co.
