Mr. Will M. Maupin, whoso literary produc
tions fill this volume, has been a membor of tho
stall of The Commoner during its more than two
and a hulf years oi existence, and I toko genu
ine pleasure in commending his work to those
who enjoy Innocent fun, delicate humor and
philosophy senaoned-with sentiment. His tables,
dialogues and paragraphs are to the point, ana
tho wit is made subservient to tho argument he
presents, Ho is especially happy in bis verse
when as he oitcn doeshe ucuis with, the ten
der attachments ot the family and the homely
Virtues oi overy-day life, The moral in his writ
ings is always .apparent and paramount, and I
contribute this foreword in the bcllor tUatlho
book will benefit those who aro led to peruse it.
W. J. BRYAN.

If your spell '.of play is done;
Time your duty is begun',
Of injunctions we are ,sick,
For they do not turn the trick

If you'd take the proper course,
And tho Sherman law enforce,
You could bust tho trusts today
And. by-doing earn your pay,
But yoiL were, not built that way

We well know just why you pause,
Well we know it is because,
You were not put there for that
By the trusts who yield the fat,
But to Bhield them and that's flat,
If you think we do you wrong,
Prove it by some effort strong
Get the law on scheming men;
Chuck 'em in the prison , pen, . .
And we will Relieve you then,
And you can safely bet that we'll
not believe.it until you do something
beside taljc and get out pitiful injunc

The Retort Courteeua.
Once in a while one finds a street
car conductor who is inclined to be
just a bit gay.
A few days ago a youth, plainly
from the country, boarded a Farnam
street car in Omaha, and after the
car started he spoke to the conductor:
"Do you know Mr. Atwater, sir?"
The conductor winked at some men
on the platform and replied:
"Intimately. Are you going to strike
him for a job?"
"Yes, sir," replied the youth.
"Well, if I wasn't so busy managing
this railway company I'd go over with
you and recommend you," said the
"Much obliged, sir, but I rather you
wouldn't, You see I, want to make a
good Impression the first time I meet
And the conductor was so rattled
that ho rang the register twice as a
signal for the motorman to go ahead.
The 'big boy entered the school and
Immediately began bullying the small

brutal little tough, and the way he
made the smaller boys stand around
"was aggravating to see.
One day the smaller boys held a
secret meeting and set about devising
ways and means to dethrone the bully,
After much discussion a pale,
thoughtful youth with a-bulging bfow
said: - ;
"Boys, I cannot, I really cannot,
stand this imposition any longer. The
next time he endeavors to bully me I
shall" resent it."
The meeting dispersed, the pale and
thoughtful youth walking away with
a determined air, followed by the ad
miring gaze of his comrades.
The very next day the bully pitched
onto the pale and thoughtful youth
and instantly a fight resulted. It lasted
but a brief moment.
Q, that we were permitted to soy
that the pale and thoughtful youth
whipped the bully to a frazzle. But
love of truth prevents. The pale and
tnughtful youth lasted about as long
as a fifty-pound chunk of Ice on an
And after that tho young bully was
worse than ever.

There was a gasp from the hurried
man, but evidently he recovered
quickly, for ho shouted:
"Fpur dollars! Send, me five tons,
"Beg pardon, sir,1' said the clerk in
the coal office, whp happened to be a
recent importation from u Boston"
'while hard coal is worth but four
dollars a ton the price is ten fifty de
