to the editor of THE CONSEUVATIVE.
I feel very iudiguated , as an old Ger
man professor used to say. Gorman-
Americans have an especial right to feel
"indignated. " We came here , at least ,
those that exert any influence on public
opinion , in protest against militarism
and all its concomitants , to a country
which was a standing protest against all
of it , and the medievalism , to a country
which was a living proof of this , that
the happiness of nations is derived from
the negation of the policy of force and
the assertion of the principle in govern
ment that governments derive their
power solely from the consent of the
governed. And now all this is to be put
in question under a continuance of re
publican rule ? I say no , no , and no
again. Rather Bryan even and the
Chicago platform than another four
years of William the Reluctant. I be

the absurdity of the 10 to 1 chant , now

respect for the above but cannot , for a

THE IRONY OF EVENTS.
Ever since the Reverend Mr. Sheldon
of Topeka officially defined Christ's
attitude toward corsets , we have been
looking for the ever-correct Ladies'
Home Journal to banish those wares
from its advertising columns. But thus
far Mr. Bok has not seen fit to place
himself among the sheep in this respect ,
insomuch that we view with alarm the
licentious array of incompletely-attired
females displayed in his paper , from one
cover to the other. Mr. Bok is thus , it
will bo seen , placing himself in a very
unenviable light before the eyes of the
youth of Kansas and elsewhere.
Besides receiving this blow from so
unexpected a quarter as Topeka , the
Ladies' Homo Journal has got it on the
cheek from the formidable Mr. Dooley.
A series of papers from that philosopher
was advertised , and two or three num
bers actually published ; but the horrid
fact would obtrude itself that Mr.
Dooley had in earlier days practised the
art of a saloon-keeper , a profession
which the Journal prefers to "oblither-
ate , " as Mnlvaney says. The strain
evidently became excessive , on either
Mr. Bok or Mr. Dunne ; for suddenly the
series was broken off , with an editorial
statement that Mr. Dunne's health for
bade him to continue it.
Mr. Dunne's health does not , however ,
prevent Mr. Dooley from still holding
forth to his countrymen in Harper's
Weekly and elsewhere.

"Are you sure of it ? " "Absolutely. "

The ash of the millet is abnormally high ; this diminishes other constituents.
