The Foundation Stone of Swcescc.
. The one great ruleof buincss is that
of honeEty. at.so1utc and unqualified
honesty. All thc rules of business are
worthless i they are not fotmdcd on
that one and only foundation stone to
- true commercial success. honesty islet
! lot alone the best policy in business ; it
Is the one and only policy. Upon it ,
and upon it alone , can a good reputa-
twn be built , and a man in business
without a reputation forhonesty might
) ust as vell stop. Any deviation from
the rule of honesty in busin s may
bring temporary gain , but it invariably
means permanent loss. On the other
hand , a strict adherence to an honest
Poiicy may mean a temporary loss , but
sure to result in permanent gain.

. , . Ininy estimation. the pursuit of the
I mountain sheep is the highest type of
i hunting our continent affords. To

regret the disappearance of the mona-

GRAND OLD PARPY.
WHY IT IS BEIJ'JG CALLED TO
Living Truths That Can Not lie Denied
-Even the ChIldren Are Tired of
Few Jobs , Many Applicants.
One evening recently , when out west ,
I stopped at the hous of a friend who
read from a Louisville paper that Governor -
ernor McKinley was going there to
speak , and .then on to Nashville. He
added : "Hurrah for McKinley ! "
His wife'asked : "Why do you think
McKinley will be the next president of
the United States ? "
"Because he Is the foremost. man In
the nation at this time , " was the hus-
"Is he a Democrat , papa ? " asked his
little 10-year-old Effie.
"No. Whydo you ask that question ,
Thy daughter ? "
"Because I don't want any more
Democrats in mine. "
'Why , " said the father , "don't you
'get ' az much to eat and wear as you
used to get ? "
"No , " she said , "we don't get as much
to eat. We used to have plenty of beef-
Her little 8-year-old brother chipped
in with , "Yes , and we used to have
oysters when we wanted tj'm. and no
we never see any. "
"Yes , " said Effie , "and we used to
have cheese , and I have not seen any
cheese for so long I wouldn't know any
If I met It on the road. We used to have
lots of things when papa was making
plenty of money that we don't have
now. ! '
"Well , ray children , " the father replied -
plied , with moisture in his eyes , "I had
nothing to do with stopping you from
having all the food and things you
wanted nor causing the hard times
that have been upon us , but the good
people of the United 'States will not
stand this sort of thing longer than
they can help. " B. Thifiken.
: i : have not been able to get more than
nine week' work this year , and have a
family of seven to support. This is also
the condition of : thousands of other Ia-
borers. Heretofore there has been a
Iarge demand for labor In this state ,
men .behig brought here during the lat-
tei part of .the summer from other
states in order ; to supply the demand.
'Farm laborers 'used to receive from
.1.50 to $2 per day ; mechanics , $3 to
$4.50per dayminers ; , from $3 to $4 per
day ; sheep herders , from $40 to $45 per
month , including board , which is also
included in wages given for farm la-
borers. This was our condition be-
f ore the Democrats came into power.
Since then all industries have been
paralyzed and wages are from 50 to 60
er cent less , and very little work is to
be had even at this price. There
were thousands of men who were doing -
ing well two years ago , but were not
satisfied with the wages above men-
tioned. They wanted "tariff reform , "
voted the democratic ticket , and wore
the democratic badge , the rooster ,
pinned upon their hats. Today they
wear the democratic badge in the seat
of their pants , and they are going
around looking for a job. The present
administration has been a disgrace to
this nation and a laughing stock to
the civilized world. It has driven
honest mento theft and caused many
'innocent children to lie In their beds
at night without even a crust of bread
to satisfy their hunger. I can assure
, you this is no exaggeration.

Few Jobs , ! any ApplIcants.
An examination of the advertising
columns of a recent Sunday issue of
one of the 'New York dailies gave a
fair idea of the condition of male and
female labor in this city. There were
tweLve columns of advertisements that
had been inserted by females who
wanted work , but only three columns
of advertisements inserted by people
who wanted female help. There was
an average of thirty-five advertisements -
ments 'to .each column , making 420 female -
male applicants for work with only 105
opportunities for them to secure it. In
other words , there were four females
± 0 every vacant position.
In 'the .case ( of males there was the
same space , three columns , devoted to
advertisers who wanted help , but it
tookight columns to specify the wants
of .those who ivere out of work. There
were 2S0 male applicants for 105 jobs.
Combining the advertisements of the
male 'and female applicants , there were
700 who 'sought work , but they found
only -opportunities for them to secure -
cure positions , or . three and one-half
people waiting for .every job. It must
be remembered , too , that there are not
so many idle people now as there were
'six months ago , also that there are
hundre s of applicants for work who
1cannot affar.d to pay ! or the cost of advertising -
vertising even in those free-trade or-
gaas that helped to bring about the
Lesions In Prices.
The total export of breadstuffs from
the United States during the Jst ten
months has been less by $53,700,000
than during the previous ten corresponding -
spending months. The decrease in exports -
ports of provisions during the same
period is $5,700,000. Compared with
the famous years of the McKinley tar-
1ff , 1891-2-3 , the volume of our exports
of farm produce shows a lamentable
'shrinkage , says Chicago Inter Ocean.
All this Is in straight refutation of the
promise of the free traders , who assured -
sured us an Increased exportation of
farm stuffs In exchange for our increased -
creased importatlofls of manufactures.

wheat" as a result of "tariff reform. "
We are In the fool's.paradlse , to which
a majority of the voters drove us , lured
by the false promises of the free tracl-
ers. By all laws of nature wheat
should be dearer in 1895 than in 1892 ,
when the crop reachedtheunprecedent-
ed magnitude of 611,780,000 bushels ,
but by reason of the operation of the
unnatural law that has removed alarge
measure of protection from home manufactures -
ufactures the price Is lower for a small
output of grain than for a large one.
The purchasing power of the home
market Is curtailed , and , therefore , the
nrlce has . fallen . The farmers of
- ' - - - - - -
America , who were deluded in ' 90 and
' 92 by the free trader's cry , "Liverpool
fixes the price of wheat , " now have
painful leisure in which to discern that
Liverpool fixes the price in accord with
the American demand. When our factories -
tories are running full time , and when
wages are high , the price of wheat is
high in Chicago , and consequently in
Liverpool. When our factories are not
busy , and when wages are low , the
price of wheat Is low in Chicago , and
consequently in Liverpool. "The buyer -
er fixes the price , " is the rule of trade.
No one can sell at a higher price than
another is able to give. Chicago is the
greatest wheat buyer. It buys for 65-
000,000 AmerIcan people. Liverpool is
a lesser luyer ; it buys for 35,000,000
of Englishmen. Therefore Liverpool
does not fix the price. The price is
determined in the greater market. Protection -
tection makes the greater market
brisk ; low tariff makes it dull.
Don Quixote Dickinson.
The only Don Dickinson has come
to the front again. It seems that his
recent tail-twisting speech at Detroit
was delivered immediately after another -
other of his confidential talks with
President Cleveland. Is it possible
that the phlegmatic patriotism of the
chief executive of the United States has
been aroused to a vigorous asertion
of American rights as against British
encroachments ? Certain it is that the
Don of Michigan shows much the same
zeal for compelling the British lion to
stop the roaring and lashing of his tail
on the Venezuelan border that the Don
of la Nancha did In redressing the
wrongs that appealed to his chivalric
sympathy. What coming event casts
its shadow before in that fierce onslaught -
slaught ? Some surmise that it par-
tends a change in the Secretaryship of
State ; but this seems hardly probable ,
for it will be rememberedthat not
long ago , while the president was gunning -
ning for ducks in the Carolinas , See-
retary Gresham gave that same tail a
most vigorous twist , followed , almost
as soon as our Nimrod returned , by a
reversal of policy. Secretary Greshain
has the spirit of that old campaign
cry " 54.40 or fight , " which , by the way ,
culminated in 49 and no fight. But let
us hope that the United States will , if
necessary , insist that the question of
boundary between Venezuela and British -
ish Guiana will be submitted to the
umpirage of fair and impartial arbi-
tration. If there is one thing in the
record of the Democratic party of
which it may be proud it is the stalwart -
wart Americanism of Andrew J'acks.ri-
and later of William L. Marcy.-Inter
The Great Conspiraey.
It is about as necessary for Assistant
Secretary Curtis and Logan Carlisle to
go to London to deliver United States
bonds taken by the foreign syndicate
as it is for a Chicago millionaire to go
to Washington to pay his income tax.
The bond syndicate had its agents so
near to the President and Secretary 'of
the Treasury that they were suspected
of more influence than the cabinet. The
same agents who held Uncle Sam up by
the throat until he issued the bonds
I can certainly be intrusted to take .crc
1 of these and lock them up in their Eng-
I lish vaults. The contemplated trip oZ
I Messrs. Curtis and Carlisle is simply a
' junket at the expense of the govern-
ment. But it is rather rough on the
people to be compelled to stand and
deliver and then pay for a picnic party

Carter Has had Enough.
Eugene D. Carter , of North Carolina ,
is another prominent Southern Democrat -
crat who has grown tired of the old
slave method of using the bogy man to
keep white men in the Democratic
party. "We have at lastreached , that
point in the south , " says he , "where
honest , thinking men can no longer be
dragooned into silly inconsistencies in
national politics by any fear of that
worn-out bugbear of negro domina-
tion. " Mr. Carter is not an exception
in the South. He is representative of
many thousands of intelligent white
men who have become disgusted with
the use of this once great bogy of the
South to prevent them from breaking
away from the Democratic machines
that enable little rings of corrupt pal-
iticians to rule several Southern states ,

And toady to a queen or king ;

To offer It your other cheek !

Leaps of a Mountain Sheep.
No ; the mointain sheep does not leap
from great heights. and land either
upon his horns or his feet. He knows
the strength of his materials too well
to try it His horns and skull might
successfully withstand the shock , but
the weight of his body would break his
spinal column in two or three places , to
say the least of it. It is true that when
hard pressed a herd of them will sometimes -
times plunge down a terribly steep in-
dine , sliding and bounding from point
to , point , until they plow into the "slide
rock" below ; but as to leaping over a
sheer precipice , I never saw any one
who even claimed to have witnessed
such a thing. The old rams often fight
by butting each other terrifically. and
often splinter , or sometimes break off ,
the ends of their horns in that way.

The Mountain Goat a Stupid Animal.
Although the mountain goat is a very
sure-footed and level-headed animal ,
he is said by those who have hunted
him ( of whom I confess I am not one )
to be a very stupid animal , and easily
killed when once the hunter reaches
his haunts. In actual weight he is
about the size of the Virginia deer , but
in bulk he seems to be larger because
of his shaggy fleece of wool and hair.
The horns are small , smooth and jet
black , and the hoof is a strange corn-

and knife.edge on the outside , to hold
the owner on snow , ice , or bare rock
