THE Campbell Press by H. M. Crane

SILVER certificates of the $1 de
nomination are quietly superseding the
more bulky silver dollar in the money
markec and currents of trade. Neither
can be said to be too numerous.
JUDGE G-RESIIAM , if the example
made of the illustrious Allen Gr. Thur-
man be repeated , will pay dearly , to the
corporate powers of the land for his
fearless , manly views recently express
ed in the Wabash case.
IT ma } ' not be a matter of moment
ous issue to you , gentle peruser , but
we thought we would tell you about it
anyway. The sun weighs just the neat
little sum of 1,910,278,070,000,000-
000,000,000,000 tons !
THE governor has appointed Dr.
William M. Knapp , of York , the suc
cessor of Dr. Matthewson , as superin
tendent of the state asylum for the in
sane. The appointment is a good one ,
and will give general satisfaction.
"Suoil is life We like
: swing a pen
dulum between pleasure and pain , hope
and fear , laughs and tears and they
are never far apart. Extremes meet
every hour. Height and depth are cor-
relativesgiven : } one , you have the other.
Can a man laugh loud ? Then turn
around , touch a different nerve , pro
nounce a woman's name , and lo ! His
sobs are as sincere and deep as his
laughter. ' '
THE decision of Judge Gresham , in
the United States District Court , in the
matter of the Wabash receivership , is
considered the most important opinion
ever delivered in America respecting
railroad interests , and is reported as
having made Jay Gould and the other
railroad ghoulds feel as though there is
a "God in Israel. " The nation com
mends the Judge's splendid exhibition
of vertebra ) .
SEVERAL arrests have recently been
made of persons engaged in sending
through the mails and otherwise circu
lating obscene pictures and books. The
devil has no meaner and more despica
ble agents on earth than those engaged
in such work , and when caught the
ears of justice should be closed to any
appeal for mercy. The penalties of
the law are meager punishment for
such criminals who would debauch the
minds of the young. The society en
gaged in hunting down such miscreants
is doing a valuable work for the race.
JNYE has some acquaintance
with the Kansas drug store. In the
course of some remarks to an inquiring
correspondent he advises him to stick
to the profitable drug business in pref
erence to going into literature for a
living , and tells him to go to Kansas if
he wants "to sell the tincture of Dam
nation , " a mixture "that will burn
great holes in nature's heart and make
the cemetery blossom as the rose. "
This Kansas drug store juice , according
to Bill's theory is made of "stump wa
ter and future punishment , " and is a
"compound which holds crime in solu
tion and rum in bulk , " and that "shriv
els up man's gastric economy and seara
great holes in his immortal soul. "
