THIS is a fast age. In mechanics ,
arts and sciences , in nearly everything
useful and practical as Avell as orna
mental and theoretical , we are adA'anc-
ing on Avhat might be termed a high
pressure plan. In the worry , bustle
and perplexities of the life of to-day
there are too many who are forgetful
of the amenities of social existence ,
and-soine are even careless of the du
ties devoh'ing upon them in the fam
ily circle , in the home ; the place
Avhich should be every man's haven
and more to him than all else beside.
It is the carelessness of home sur
roundings on the part of fathers , espec
ially in the Avealthier circles Avhich of
ten leads to unpleasant results. Not
unfrequently runaAvay matches are the
result of parents' inattention to their
daughters , and to a lack of knowledge
as to their dispositions , qualifications
and rational desires and ambitions.
Illustrations of this are practically
given every Aveek and oftener , in our
large cities and even in small towns.
The recent case of the marriage of a
young Avoman to her rich father's
coachman is only one of many exam
ples of the kind. The father , Avith but
tittle reflection , fixed the social stand
ard and wanted the daughter to mar
ry in the circle he named , or not at all.
Then followed the sequence , and sa
cred family ties Avere broken. Valua
ble lessons might be learned from oc-
Curences of the kind , but it is doubt
ful if they will be. The AA'orld will
: lash along at the same rapid pace in
tent only upon the large concerns of
iife , leaArmg the smaller , yet more im
portant , to end as fickle fortune may
decree. Omaha Republican.
THE word "dude" has at last found
its way into court. A young man in
Montreal has made complaint against
another for insulting him by calling
lim "a dude. " The plaintiff's appear
ance in court satisfied the spectators
; hat so far as he was concerned tlie de-
'endant had not seriously maligned
lim even if he applied the epithet in
question. The legal point at issue ,
lowever , AA'as whether an insult , pun-
shable by fine or imprisonment , had
) een offered in public. For a long
time , in the amusing turn which the
: ase took , the real issue Avas lost sight
of. Both sides were represented by
ible counsel , and a larfje number of
witnesses had been summoned chiefly.
t seems , Avith a view to discovering
; hc exact meaning of the Avord "dude. "
To this end a multitude of questions
Avere asked and a beAvildering variety
of definitions were elicited , as may be
mao-ined Avhen it is mentioned that
; he Avitnesses included lawyers , civil
service employes , policemen , Avell
cnowii young s\vells , tailors , mer
chants , theatrical agents , and journal-
sts. The court room was packed dur-
ng the trial , and the assemblage in
cluded some of the leading people ,
"n the end the court stated that it Avas
horouofhlv bewildered as to what a
'dude" actually AVUS , but as it Avas not
jroved that the alleged insult had tak
en place in the public street he would
dismiss the case. The plaintiff de
clares that he Avill carry the case to a
lio-her court.Ve AA-ould suggest that
f he isn't a dude he should challenge
lis insulter to mortal combat. Bee.
THERE is no question but what pol
ios enters largely into the conditions
of trade , and it is generally an admit-
ed fact that during the presidential
-ear , particularly if there is any prob
ability of a change in the administra-
icHi , business is dull and unsettled.
lowever , the fall trade is picking up
n a very encouraging manner through
out the ( aast , and should the election
n Ohio on Tuesday next result in fa-
or of the republicans and the indi
cations now point that way there I
will be an additional reviA-al in busi
ness "as an evidence of the faith cf
the public in continued republican
administration , " as a leading eastern
journal is led to observe.
