Editok Heiiald: The Bryan
club has challenged tho McKinley
club in Box Butto precinct for a
joint discussion on tho monoy
question but threo of their loaders
politely declined, saying that tho
money question is too deep for the
farmers to talk on and that a
farmer would only spoil thoir side
and McKinley would bo the loser.
Now Mr. Editor thoBe republican
howlors remind mo of a story:
Farmer Brown met Farmer Mc-
Ginty. Brown bet McGinty ono
dollar to a pint that McG. counldn't
swallow an egg without breaking
tho sholl, but after McG. swallow
ed tho egg a second sober thought
struck him, saying if I jump about
I'll break that egg and cut ray
stomach with tho shell; if I keep
quite tho darn thing will hatch out
and I'll have a shanghai rooster
clawing my insides. Now Mr.
Editor we want to say to those few
rural gold bugs that whenever
their stomachs aro strong enough
to endure sound argument on tho
money question from tho farmers
standpoint the Bryans will be
glad to meot them any time in Box
Uutto precinct between now and
election. William Matzat,
Bryan club challenger.

Japan' Public Debt.
It Is intended that the existing na
tional debt of Japan, Including the for
eign and home loans, war loans and the
industrial loan shall be redeemed In
thirty-eight years. The debt Includes
the fund ralaed for commuting the rev
enues of tho feudal chiefs, for the build
ing of railways, docks, lighthouses and
public buildings as well as for estab
lishing telegraphs and other industrial
enterprises. Tho sum required for tho
servlco of the debt In 1901, wheu the
debt reaches Its highest figure, will, as
near as can be estimated, equal 25t
per cent of the revenue. In Great
Britain 26 per cent is required, in

In axtiniverslty town in ono of tho
southern statcB n reading club had
been organized, each member of which
was required to prepare a paper on
some designated literary masterpiece.
Ono member, an episcopal clorgyman,
was asked to take for his subject Sir
Thomas Mallory's "Morto d'Arthur."
Immediately after tho meeting ho
sought tho study of a literary friend.
"What Is this 'Morto Darthur that
they've given me?" ho queried anx
iously. "Of course I've nlways known
that Mallory edits The Churchman but
I never heard beforo that he'd written
a book." The Bookman.

TRYING TO KEEP UP.
Flo Trtde and Llvlr, ltsyond One's
There la nothing bo absolutely fool
lsh and untemunerntlvo as the falsa
pride which attempts a style of living
beyond tho means of the Individual,
whoso only incentlvo thereto Is that
others In her Bet do thus and so, and
therefore it is incumbent upon her to
do Ilkowiao, says tho New York Trl-
bune. To Btrlvo to keep up to a certain
standard, without tho meanB to do bo
comfortably or successfully, Is of all
things most wearing and dispiriting.
Many a woman at the end of the season
asks herself what It Is all worth, and
thinks how foolish sha has been to
waste time, energy and money to gain
the favor of certain people who havo
so much that they count for nothing
the efforts mado to plcaso them and
consider they are conferring a favor
by accepting Invitations. Yet, despite
her experience of tho vanity and hol
low sham of It all, the chances are ten
to one that such a woman will begin
her poor, pitiful worldly campaign tho
next seapon with renewed vL"r, and
that she will again sacrifice herself and
family to this Moloch of modern so
ciety called public opinion. If only
these poor, hard-working, weary deni
zens of vanity fair realized that sucb.
striving is not only fruitless, but de
rogatory, that the very people whose
acquaintance and friendship they aro
most anxious to secure would like and
respect them far more if they were
simple and honest and hospitable ac
cording to their means, it would savo
them no end of trouble and discour
agement. "Wo dined at Mrs. A.b tho
other evpnlng," sal-' the sensible wife
of one of our multi-millionaires, "and
enjoyed It so much. She lives in n
tiny apartment and has only two
maids, and she gives us the simplest
little dinner, but so good, and such a
relief after the elaborate affairs one
generally has to sit through. Just coup,
fish, a fillet of beef, an entree and a
sweet, everything In such excellent
taste, and only eight at table, but Just
tho people one wanted to see. 'Do ask
me again,' my husband said to her as
wo woie leaving. 'I have not enjoyed
myself so much this winter, and ho
really meant It. Wo took dinner wlth
some one else, who shall be nameless,
a couple of evenings afterward. Such
a tiresome experience as It was! The
dinner was poor nnd yet very elab
orate, and everything was on a scale
too big for the house. 'What a mis
take those people make, I said as wo
were driving home, 'and how anxlou9
nnd fagged Mrs. looked.' 'I pre-
surao they are living beyond their
means,' was my husband's manlike
conclusion. ' came to me the other
day to got me to go Into some new en
terprise In which he is Interested, but
I guess I'll keep out of it.' "
"How tired nnd discontented Mrs.
Clymber looks," remarked one of her
acquaintances, "and yet she has made
a success of It this winter, every ono
"She lias bought her victory too
dear," answered some ono who was
presont. "She has spent more than
she enn afford. She bnd offended her
old friends, and what has she gainodt
Toleration only from the set she has
set her heart upon belonging to. No
wonder that she finds the apples of
Sodom dust and ashe3 yet she will
continue to reach after them with th(?
samo eagerness next season."
Localities Id tho IlritMh Iilea
ItetHln Oltlo Names.
Many localities retain the names,
original' bestowetf upon them by tho
Celtic Britons, those, for example,
which have tho prefix cum, which is
the Welsh crom, a valley, says tho
Gentlemen's Magazine. Anderson, tho
local poet, enumerates them:
There's Cumwhltton, Cumwhlnon,
Cumrangan, Curnrew and Cumcatch,
And mony malr cums In tho county.
But nln wl' Cnmdivock can match.
Some of the above nameB, It will bo
observed have the Anglo-Saxon "ton"
superadded to them.
The familiar Celtic prefixes, pen, a
hilltop and cnor, a fortress, appear In
Penrith and Pcnrudock (which both
signify "red hill"), Cardurnock and
Carlisle or Caer-Leol. Durnock may be
the Gaelic dwr-cnoc, "water hill" or
else a proper name. Leol Is merely
a contraction of Luguvalllum, tho Ro
man name of Carlisle, and the Latin
ized form of some unpronounceable ap
pellation by which tho Britons desig
nated the site of that city.
In Talkin wo recognize the Celtic
word, taken, a brow, and In Castlo
Carrock we may trace the Gaelic car
ragh (which metins a largo stone set
on end) or tho Welsh careg, a rock.
Tho river names of tho county, aro
for the most part of Celtlo origin. Thus
the Irthlng, wandering over tho allu
vial plain, is believed to derive Its
name from the Welsh gwryddu, to
to writhe or turn, and the Gelt, dashing
over its bed of red sandstone, from the
Celtic gait, a rock.
Of mountain names Helvellyn, the
yellow mountain: Itlvelyn, the red
mountain, and Blencathra, tho seat
mountain (the ancient name of Saddle
back), aro Celtic. The Gaelic word
cathalr and Welsh cader mean a chair
and Blaen In a Welsh term for a hill
top, occurring In other local uamoa,
such as Blcncow and Blenncrhasset.
