Frye was chairman of the convention
and in his speech, referring to the
attitude of the republican party on
the tariff, said, "it will continue to
the present drift of the times. It takes
a long -while even in these days for
the people to' truly appreciate tho
good things they have and even ap
preciate good service, such as they
received from Gen. Miles. The peo'
pie are just awakening to the realiza
tion that instead of being "knockers"
the men who entered the protest
against embalmed beef were in reality
sincere in their condemnation of out
rages which decimated the rank and
file of the service. Every dog has his
day, so runs the old saw, and it seems
that the men under fire during the
late war are coming to their own as
the result of the awakening of the
American people at a later period.
Lincoln . (111.) Times-Courier.
Are we going to be a race of stoop
shouldered men? One would naturally
think so to look over almost any large
crowd, walk down any crowded street,
or glance at the average male human
being he meets. The man who walks
with his head erect, his shoulders
thrown back and his chest extended,
just as nature intended he should, is
a rarity and is remarked about wher
ever he goes. The average man, and,
more's the pity, the average young
man, walks as if he were very tired.
His chest is flat, his head leans for
ward, his shoulders stoop and he has
a decided tendency to "lop." How
different it would be if men walked
upright and more like the military
looking men of Europe. How much
better the whole race of males would
look if they carried themselves as
nature built them to carry themselves.
It Is healthier, too, to walk like a sol
dier, for there is ease in carrying the
body, there is a free circulation of air
in the lungs and there is a general,
all-around healthfulness in it that is
lacking in the loafing carriage of the
average man, whether he be farmer,
business inaji, professional man or
gentleman of leisure. Manson (la.)'
