tho matter with drawing a bead on
Secretary of the Treasury Shaw? In
turning over the national treasury to

has flagrantly violated tho law. No
one denies that ho has, but sugges

the "majesty of tho law" are altogether
lacking. Houston Post

Tom Ochiltree relates that while ho
was a representative from Texas, and
returning to his home from Washing
ton, he observed a large crowd at the
station. When tho train stopped he
stepped upon the platform and started
to address tho crowd. Ho began:

A Story -With a Moral.
A Missouri farmer has made a seri
ous mistake In exposing himself to
the gibes of a heartless world. He
saw an advertisement of a "two-dollar
fire escape," and the more ho looked,
at the advertisement the more" ho
wanted the fire escape.
'Tcan't let a bargain like that a-one
git away," he murmured through hiB
tangly whiskers. And then he sat
down and mailed the two-dollar bill.
In duo time the fire escape arrived.

While the recently organized choir
of tho Sunday school of the Central
Presbyterian church of Brooklyn were
rehearsing last Saturday night Dr.
Carson asked them if they could sug
gest a good hymn which they could
sing. For a few minutes the singers
looked through their books in search
of an appropriate one, but were un
successful. Finally the silence was
broken by some wag saying:
"For goodness' sake, Doctor, don't
sing 'From Greenland's Icy Mountains
with coal at ?20 a ton."
Effects of the Strike.
See the coal.
Where has the coal been?
Has the coal been In the coal bin?
Is the coal mine mine, or is the coal
mine not mine?
"If not mine; where Is mine?
Has the coal been in the mine, and
if the coal bin is mine, why can I not
mine in the coal mine for my coal bin?
If tho coal in the coal bin was mine,
why has not the coal been In tho coal
bin instead of in the coal mine that
Is not mine?

this easy primer for coal consumers
was at this point put into his strait
jacket for tho evening.)
Some time before ho was elected to
the presidency Lincoln received a let
ter from a New York city firm asking
as to tho standing of one of his neigh
bors, who had begun a transaction with
c. 3 firm. Lincoln's reply was:
"Yours of the th received. I am
well acquainted with Mr. , and
know his circumstances. First of all,
ho has a wife and baby; together, they
ought to bo worth ?50,000 to any man.
Second, ho has an office, in -which
there is a table worth $1.50 and three
chairs worth, say ?1. Last of all,
there is in ono corner a largo rathole,
which will bear looking into."
Bishop Vincent, of tho Methodist
church, and one of tho founders of tho
Chautauqua circle, tells of an Inci
dent that helped to make interesting
a summer he spent in the mountains of
Tennessee. Strolling thoughtfully
along one day, he suddenly found him
self In tho midst of a very active
camp meeting of negroes. Two or
three ministers present recognized
him, introduced him to others, and
soon the blshop'found himself so pop
ular that ho was fairly dragged to
the speaker's platform and asked to
say something to tho assemblage. Ho
consented, and one of tho blacks
stepped forward to introduce the un
expected visitor. This master of cere
monies went right to the point Ho
made the gathering know that they
were all of one purpose and spirit, not
withstanding the difference in com
plexion, and wound up as follows:
"Now, brethren and sisters, Brother
Vincent, as yo' con pee for yo'selves, Is
white of face; but at heart, lot me tell
yo at heart, I say! he's as black
as any of us."
Peculiar Republican Prosperity,
Republicans delight to talk of their
party as the party of prosperity. Tho
democrats, they urgo in season and
out-of season, are disturbers of tho
business interests of the country. With
much earnestness they point to tho
last panic which the country suffered
as tho result of the Wilson bill.
Now, it is a fact that tho last panic
began a year before the Wilson bill
became a law, and this panic is trace
able to republican legislation and to
nothing cIbo. At tho moment of Cleve
land's second inauguration President
Harrison had already caused plate
to bo engraved for a bond Issue. Th
prosperity which tho country has en
joyed undor various republican re
gimes has been not because, but In
spito of republican rule.
Whllo it cannot bo said that wo are
threatened with a panic at tho present
time, the monoy stringency which Is
now on is duo to republican misrule.
Secretary Shaw, in his ofroring to an
ticipate tho interest on government
obligations maturing between October
1 and tho end of tho fiscal year, offi
cially recognizes tho stringency, and,
while ho proposes what may, or may
not prove an ndoquato relief, it can
not bo said that tho administration
has obsorvod tho rule of tho old pro
verb that provontlon is better than
Itussoll Sago, in a letter published
on Friday, puts his finger on one of
tho causes of tho stringency, to-wlt,
wild cat speculation. This is directly
traceable to tho administration's en
couragement of trusts by not enforc
ing, or attempting to enforce, the Sher
man anti-trust law, except against two
out of over two hundred of tho trusts
which are, and have been, violating it
Tho great Pennsylvania coal strllco
and tho other strikes which havo tak
en place in different parts of tho
countrynot a day passes without a
strike or a rumor of strike aro evi
dences of a condition of business and
industry very far removed from tho
boasted, republican prosperity.
Tho discontent, not of tho laborers
alono, but of all classes, is not spor
adic, but is universal. It is not on tho
wane, but is on tho increase and at
a rapid rate. Tho cry of tho citizen
who is paying the high prices with
small earnings and tight money -is.
"If this bo republican prosperity, give
us somo other kind." Houston Post
"When I can't see danger there is no
danger." That's the logic of the ostrich
which hides its head and exposes Us
body to the hunter. There are not a
few people who seem to have gone to
the ostrich to learn logic. The most
dangerous enemies of humanity are the
enemies which can't be seen, the disease
breeding microbes which infect th
blood. It is harder to get the micros
out of the blood than to keep it out, but
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medicai Discovery
docs both, by puri
fying the blood
and then keeping

a few minutes at a time, and I could rest or sleep
only a little while at a time. My throat wa so
sore at times I could not even swallow sweet
milk, and my tonsils were full of little eating
sores. My left side was swollen out of shape
and I could hardly get my breath. The doctor
said I would not get well, but three bottles of
