J paint? Because it
will outlast all other paints, give a
handsomer finish, better protection to

Strictly Pure White Lead, why are all
the adulterated white leada always

This Barytes is a heavy white powder
(ground atone), having the appearance
of white lead, worthless at a paint,

Tbe Right to Strike and Boycott.
How plausibly the critics of organized
labor play with tbe Idea of freedom.
In this free country, they say, employ
ers should be free to hire any laborers they
want, union or non-union, and non-union
workers should be free to work for any
This means that these critics would not
bsve union men to be free to stipulate
the terms under which they shall sell
their owa labor.
Here is a paradox freedom at cross
purposes with freedom and up to this
paradox specious pleaders for the em
ploying classes carry their thought
through a series of discriminations,
sometimes to this point just and admir
able, leaving on their bearers' minds the
impression that they are battling for
freedom, while they ignore the query
they provoke as to the freedom of which
the union men are to be deprived, or
sopblstlcally declare that such freedom
is Immoral and Intolerable.
But n ) need today for any one to
flounder in this paradox. It has been
cleared away. It rests flashing on the
mind several times in rapid succession
the idea of freedom in several conflicting
The term freedom, used unrestrict
lvely, Is vague and indefinite. It is but
the correlative of the term restraint It
is applicable alike to things and to men.
Its Import is neither good nor evil, moral
nor immoral, attractive nor repellant.
Only when the werd freedom is spe
cifically applied can It Impart to us a
concrete idea and arouse in us a senti
ment. When we speak of a free country
that is, a free government we refer to
political freedom (one of the many ap
plications of the abstract Idea of freedom).
It the term political freedom stands for
any principle which may rest on scien
tific definition and analyst, It signifies the
absence of any statute laws excepting
those providing for an equal freedom
(and a corresponding eq lal restraint) for
all men in the use of their faculties; and
if one or miny Individuals go beyond the
degree at which all may be equally free,
such legal restraint would be destructive
of the first principle of free government.
In practice this principle of equal free
dom permits any man or class of men,
at any time, in the absence of legal con
tract, to withdraw their labor from the
hire of other men, and If we revert to
contract our principle ds us back to
freedom of contract, aud that in turn to
the prerequisites of free contract, and
these bring us to the original state of
self-sovereignty in which man, being
wholly free, may, to provide for bis
physical necessities, exercise bis facul
tie (tits power) on nature. He who
ran not do this Is not politically free;
Initial basis freedom Is not his.

rights under freedom
A to a freedojj which may be immoral,
what are morals and what must a gov
ernment do to enforce nioraisr
Morals are but social conventions,
widely varying in different ages and
countries, largely derived from fetish
worshippers' fears, savage Impulses and
conflicting religiout dogmas, and only
recently in any measure from philosophi
cal Inferences. What has logically fol

church, the blue laws, the suppression of
If it be averred that the refusal of
union men to work with non-unionists
is immoral, the reply U, first,
that if so, much immorality lies outside
the jurisdiction of a free government,
and secondly, that probably, the way to
put an eni to tnls and much other so
called Immorality is to make tbe govern
ment really free; and such a government
would recognize the political freedom
which gives all men access to land. In
such case, the strike and boycott could
deprive no one r( work, or, consequently
of existence. Twentieth Century.
Anathemas of tb i t.u. cU Against Bios
qultues mid CaterpllWr.
History supplies many instances of
curious culprits. Vermin have in all
ages proved devastators. It was the
custom in mediaeval times for suf
ferers by their depredations to have
recourse to the church, which in due
time, fulminated anathemas against
the culprits. The procedure in such
cases resembled that in vogue in the
ordinary legal tribunals. The plaint
iff appointed counsol, the court ac
corded one to represont tho defend
ants, and the eccleciastical judge
summed up and gave sentence.
Bartholomew de C'hasseneux, a
noted lawyer of the sixteenth cen
tury, was a great authority in this
department of law and custom, be
ing author of an exhaustive treatise
on the subject said to combine re
markable skill with vast erudition.
He was also a successful advocate in
these peculiar trials. On one occa
sion he was appointed counsel for
the defense in a case where a horde
of rats were sued for devastation
committed in the harvest fields of a
large portion of the province of
Burgundy. Chasseneux's defense in
this important trial was considered
very clever, although to modern ears
it sounds like a tissue of nonsense.
He showed that the rats had not
received formal notice, says the Chi
cago Times, and obtained a pro
nouncement that the persons of the
afflicted parishes should announce an
adjournment and summon the defend
ants to appear on a certain day. On
the adjourned trial he complalnor
that tho delay accorded his clients
had been too short to allow of their
appearance, in consequence of the
road being Infested with cats. He
succeeded in obtaining a second ad
journment, and finally a verdict was
given. In early times there was a
superstition that cocks laid eggs, and
that from these eggs sprang basa
ltsks, or horrible winged serpents.
Gross rotates that in 1474 an aban
doned cock In that town was accusod
of having laid one of these eggs, and
was tried, convicted, and sentenced
The culprit was delivered to the
executioner, who burned it publicly,
along with its eggs, in a place called
Kohlonberger, amid a large concourse
of people, assembled to witness such
a ludicrous execution, Felix Malle
olus relates that proceedings were in
stituted at Mayence, in the thirteenth
century, against some offending mos
qultos, and states that the judges be
fore whom these unwelcome insects
were tried pronounced sentence of
banishment against them. Snails
were sentenced in a case at Maoon,
In August, 1487, while in 1585 a
plague of caterpillars suffored the
penalties of excommunication.

The Old Man Entertains Hut Compan

The drummer had just finished one
of his unequaled stories, and a gray
haired man in the smoking compart
ment with him looked up a if he
could tell a story himnelf if he were
sufficiently urged, says the Detroit
"Go ahead with yours." suggested
one of thoe sympathetic khid ot men
who know things intuitively.
"It Isn't much," said the gray
haired man, modestly.
"That's what the boy said when
he was looking for the definition of
the word 'paucity,' but that's all
right give us the story," replied the
"Well." said tbe man, straighten
ing up, "some years ago, when in a
certain section of the West the sleep
ing cars were a novelty, they had a
white man on one of our roads for a
porter. He was a mean follow and
bad a way of domineering around
that wasn't pleasant He was a cow
ard, though, and afraid of a man that
met him face to face. One night I
got on at the town where I lived and
this porter was uglier than usual o
ugly, in fact, that I pulled a gun on
him and at the muzzle of It I chased
him up and down and kicked him
from one end of the car to the other.
There were eight or ten passengers
in the car with me, and by midnight,
when the porter was about half drunk
and we were ready to go to bed,
they advised me to watch him, as he
would probably try to get even by
some underhanded method. 1
laughed it off and said I wasn't afraid,
but just the same, while the porter
was dozing in a seat in the corner, I
fixed up a dummy to take my lower
berth and I got into a vacant upper
on the other side of the car. The
next morning I was awakened by
some one calling for the porter, but
no porter answered,
'He's dead drunk out ' there in
the smoker,' I said, sticking my head
through the curtains.
'i guess I'll go and see,' said tbe
Inquirer, and I got up, too.
"We found two or threo of our
party ahead of ua
" 'Hello!' said one to me, 'did you
have any trouble with the porter in
Of course not,' I said; 'where
"Don't know; thought maybe you
had thrown him off the car.'
"But I hadn't, and then we began
to look for him, and the conductor
appeared and couldn't tell us any
thing, either, Then an Idea occurred
'Walt a minute,' I said, and I
went back to the berth the porter had
made dowq for me, and throwing
open the curtains I found my dummy
covered up comfortably just as I
had left ' it, but driven through,
right where - the heart ought
to bo, was a knife at least twelve
inches long in the blade.
"Then I called in the crowd.
" Thero,' said I, 'Do you seo tho
the hilt of that knifeP I'll give 1590
to know where the porter is.'
"They stood aghast for a minute,
but nobody clalmod the $500 and
that porter was never heard of again."
HIS CLOTHES DIDN'T PIT.
Aad the Young Man Was Started on the

A group of well-dressod and prosperous-looking
business men sat about
a table in a famous New York restau
rant a few days ago, chatting on all
sorts of topics and watching the
smoke wreaths from their cigars
float up to the frescoed celling. Tbe
conversation drifted after a time into
tales of business successes, and the
oldest and most imposing member of
the party did his share by telling the

began, "to the fact that when I was
