Why, if France and Germany can produce sujgar and ship it here and pay 40 per cent duty on it, it cannot be produced here where everything is cheap without a 2 cent bounty ? 23. Why are cattle 50 per cent higher now with a $2-ahead tariff, than they were four years ago with a $10-ahead tariff? 24. If a tariff of $25, ahead should be placed on horses imported, would it in crease their value that amount ? If not, why not ? 25. If there is 15 cents a bushel tariff on corn why does it sell in Iowa now, at 5 to 10 cents a bushel ? Will Canada "dump" her surplus on us and "bear" the market ? 23. If tariff on anything should be so high as to forestall imports, how will the revenue be raised ? 27. If revenue is to come by direct taxation, who should pay it? Those who have, or those who have nothing ? 2S. Is not a tariff on anything produc ed in this country, manfactured or other wise, a tariff of protection ?

To the E.litor of the Worln-Herald: There was some doubt in my mind as to the airship we read so much about Until I read a dis patch in your Sunday paper from Harri son, Neb., aliout several eminent gentle men seeing it at that point. All doubt as to its genuioenesss has been removed, al though tliey differ in their description. I know that not one of those men 'ever 'touch a drop," neither would they say they saw it unless they had, and as Col onel Maheryour correspondent, is known all over the country for his truth and varacity, it will no longer 1 questioned. In the first place, it would be about the time of night that my old friend John Tinnen, would be prowling around ;he chicken coop, Charlie Coffee woulJ naturally 1 ont at midnight looking after the wheel of his windmill. Mr. Hub agger would 1 out letting 1 he wave of prosperity blow through his whiskers. I can prove that by El Rich of Omaliu.

Thurston is lo get for him as soon as ha gets all of the boys at Grand Island fixed up in good shape. No houbt about it, the air.se ip is genuine. JAMESC. DAIILMAN- (irant's Achievement as a Peacemaker. The honors and attentions showered upon General Grant during his tour ol the world are, perhaps, unequeled hi the history of kingly hospitality. He was recieved everywhere as the greatest soldier of his time and as the foremost living American. Hon. John Russell Young, who accompanied General Grant throughout the famous journev, fraphi call v recalls, in the May Ijidwit Uowt Journal, its conspicuous incidents; the receptiions, dinners, fetes, bills, etc., given in honor of the illustrious Ameri can. It is said that Mi'. Young brings to light a fact that has recieved but passing attention; that General Grant was instru mental in arranging t he terms of a treat y of peace lift ween China and Japan, which prevented an outbreak of war between those nations. Reporters Privileged Characters. Four Buffalo newspaper rpporfers were caugnt by the police at a prize fierht, and arrested along with the other spectators. The court, however, refused to hold the reporters, saying it was a principle of law, as well as common sense, that three kinds of men were permitted to go any where without blame doctors, clergy men and reporters. Buffalo re;ir,rters now wear badges signify mg their call ing, as a protection from arrest. Progress of Exposition. Estimated already ubmitted fix the the prolxible cost of putting the Exposi tion trrounds in shape for all purposes at $ 550,000. The fence enclosing t he grounds nearly complaten, will be about live mill's in extent. Nearly $1,000,000 is in sight, from nil sources, for the Exposition. This sum is lieing constantly added to and it is ex pected will be more than doubled by the end of 1H07. The railroads in this territory bnve al ready suliscribed 7C,000 for the Exposi tion. Other railroad subscriptions will double this amount. The wealth, resources and advantages of every countv in Nebraska will lie set forth in the State exhibit, compared with which all former exhibits will Ihj dwarfed tnto insiirnif icance. The state commissioners, appointed by the gover nor, will he charged with this work. For these positions most active competition is lieing niado by prominent men all over the state. Lenten Penances. It really requires carafnl thought and considerable ingenuity for a fashionable woman to think out some honest means of penance whereby, during Lent, she may save for her Easter offering. This season the sjiecial form of self-denial must of course differ from that practiced during any foregoing Lent; and after due consideration jewel wearing is the cause which w ill sw many an Easter fund. From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday not an ornament can be worn save on the payment of a fine. Wedding and en gagement rings are permitted only Jiy virtue of a weekly line, and any gems used as adornment, Inside these tokens of vows, must he paid for at the rate of five per cent, of their value. The woman who makes a gift of a jewel must deposit a fine for the act in her Easter box; she who recieves the gift of a jjwel must also pay the penalty into her fund; while false jewels, ornamental hat pins, neces sary little stick pins, a watch, or even a garter buckle, all come under tha head of prohibited jewels. In consequence of this new rule, which will hold until Easter Sunday, smart women are wear ing natural flowers, California violets be ing the most popular blossoms, keeping only their watches, belt buckles, hat-pins and wedding rings in use, for, comfort's sake, sodas a means of Increasing tha spring ofJariuf.
