GLADSTONE'S speech on the roya grants was a magnificent outpouring o ! patriotism and loyalty to his sovereign , The grand Hashes of his iniphty intel lect completely swamped tlio puny efforts forts of his radical deserters. IF Fred Nye and Frank Johnson wil mind their own business and leave Tin BEK ta conduct its affairs as in tin judgment of its editor is decraod best they will bo severely lot alone , even i they keep up their audacious confldonct game on the credulous. If they hankoi after notoriety , however , they will presently ontly bo accommodated in a way tha will not redound to their reputation a ! financiers or citizens. Some peoph never know when they arc docontlj treated. TUB reasons assigned by the faculty of the Ointihii medical college for ex cluding women do not seem to us in res1 on a sound basis. In view of the fact tha women have boon placed on an oqua footing with mon by the leading mod teal schools in this country and abroad the fear that the admission of womoi will frightdn uwuy the male modica students does not appear well grounded As long as women are willing to partlc ipato with mon in the dissecting roon ' nnd in the hospital wards , no serious ap 'prehension may bo felt that the collogi would suffer by co-education of thi BOXOfl. THIS fact thut the contracts for grad ing ana track-laying from Sioux Cit ; to Huron , Dakota , are now being lot i of significance to Omaha inasmuch a the completion of this road will givi direct communication to this city witl South Dakota. There is no need o speculating what roads are behind tin venture. It is sufficient to know tha a connection with Dakota is a gooi thing , and it may bo depended upoi that Omaha wilt not fail to cultlvati the acquaintance of the cities to thi north and west. But Omaha should b , nil means huvo a direct road to Yanlttoi and the Jim river valley. IT would be a matter of surprise 1 BOtno of the British gold looking for in vestment in America did not soolc ou some of the great paying industries o Omaha. The planting of tv million o two of foreign capital should be on oourngod in our city , It was Scotol and English money which gave th took and packing industries of Oniah their impetus , and the field is by n moans exhausted whereby a Imndeoin return can be assured for every dollu now invested , Our business men shouli bo alert and call the attention of thes capitalists to the advantages o tie rod b , Omaha in both mercantile nnd inanti factoring enterprises which appear t bo channels into which their tittcntioi U now directed. ANNEXING SOUTH OMAHA. The man who Always cries "I told you so , " is ponornlly pronounced a bore , Dui thcro tire occasions when a look backward may bo instructive. When the Omaha charter was bijforo the legislature three years ngo , Tim DUB vigorously opposed the effort of the contractors and syndicate comblno to cut out the section that would huvo enabled Omaha to extend her limits over the territory now covered by South Onutlin. But the oil room lobby and boodle judiciary of the legislature succeeded in mutilat ing the charter presented by Mr. Lln- ingor , nnd substituted for it n bill that has sot Omaha back live years , nnd was the prime cause of the set-back in suburban rent estate , By cutting the park provision out ol the charter wo are deprived of the op portunity to convert fcom ono to two thousand acres of suburban lands intc parks nnd boulevards nnd thus taking out of the market surplus unimproved lands nnd enhancing the value not only of-the adjacent lots and lands , but of all property in the olty. And yet , such men as Tom Brunnor anil other real estate agents wore most active in gWlntj this black eye to Omaha , either because they were in accord with Vandorbutr nnd his oil room gang or anxious to snub Roscwater , who in their opinion wielded too much iniluonco * In cutting down the area ot Oman a from thirty to twenty-live miles the boodlors of the legislature acted out the dictates of the South Omaha and stock yards syndicates. Those short sighted nnd solllsli people forced the incorporation of a now town which oven in name has become a thorn in the side of Omaha. On the map , and In fact , South Omaha is parl ot Omaha , but in nil the directories and in tlio next census South Omaha would figure as ono of the smaller oitlos in Nebraska , as much disconnected in the minds of the uninformed as Council BlutTs is and always has been. The pretense under which South Omaha was made a separate city with a municipal machine of its own was. that it would relieve property owners , and especially the stock yards and packing houses , from the heavy burdens of taxation that are imposed on property within Omaha. They wont even so far as to declare that no capitalist would locate a packing house within the corporate limits of 11 city. And yet in the face of this , look at Kansas City and Chicago. South Omaha had no sooner become a coi'porato town than the very people who objected to Omaha's heavy load of debt and extravagant city government , entered upon a system of finnneioriii" that came very near bankrupting the town. An enormous floating debt was cre ated , and on top of that a bonded debt WUE piled up for improvements which should have boon made by the syndicate and the railroads. Against this suicidal pol icy THE BKI- : vainly entered protest. The people wore literally bulldo/.ed Into voting that enormous mortgage on South Omaha and the most active advo cates of funding the fraudulent debts and bonding for grading roads through the syndicate tracts nnd building the viaducts , which the railroads should have built , wore the mon who foisted this separate town government upon the people , notably both the Herald and World. Now that iho inevitable consequences have presented them- themselves the parties and papers have fallen into line with THIS BKB in favor of amalgamating South Omaha with Omaha. Having done all the damage they could to both the cities they arc now trying to undo the mischief. In this as well as in other matters Tim BEE has had the best interests of Omaha , at heart. It has always depre cated the establishment of separate town governments in the suburbs of Omaha. The experience of all great cities has been adverse to divided municipal control. Nearly every parliament has been called upon to deal with the troublesome problem of annexation of suburban towns to London. In this country the same pro- cobS is going on around every great city. New York and Philadelphia have found it to their advantage to amalga mate with suburban cities'and villages , and Chicago has just completed the annexation of n dozen sub urban towns thut will add over throe hundred thousand to her ag gregate population in the next cen sus. The contest in the suburban town of Chicago against annexation was waged by syndicates and factory barons like George M. Pullman , who loved tc lord it over communities made up chiefly of their workmen. THE SPiniT OF MANUA J , 'fltAININO , Ono of the principal subjects dis cussed by the National educational as sociation , recently in session at Nash- villn , was Unit.of manual training. The mutter was presented to the association in the form of a report from its commit tee on pedagogics , gentlemen recog- nixed as of the highest authority in all matters pertaining to education. Thlf report consisted , first , in an inquiry iu to the educational functions ot UK branches taught in the manual training school , wherein they arc supplementary of the work al ready done and whoroln they cover the sumo ground ; and secondly , a dis cussion ot the economic questions in volved. The committed admitod the reasonableness ot substituting a system of manual training in special schooh for the old system of apprenticeship , but expressed the opinion that sucli training ought not to bo begun before the completion of the twelfth year ol the pupil , or still bettor , the fiftoentli year , or before ho has had proper school instruction in reading , writing , arithmetic , geography , grammar and history In other words that manual training should not bo considered as an equivalent for school education or a substitute for it. The ground upon which they advocate this position IE that children should be protected from the premature assumption of the cares of life. In reply to the argument that the great majority of children are des tined to earn their living by manual labor , the committee say that jusl for the ruiu > on that tha majority have before them a life of drudgery child * hood should bo carefully devoted to spiritual growth , to training the intellect - loct nnd will , and to building the basis fora larger humanity. The trade or vocation in life is but a small part of the total functions of any ono life , The trade must bo associated with something else , nnd that is n system of universal education , not in industry but in the Ideas and thoughts that make up the conventional view of the world- such ideas and opinions as ono learns In studying geography and history , nnd especially literature. While the report - port did not show much sympathy with the manual training school as an educa tional factor , the cnro nnd elaboration with which the subject was considered showed tlmt the committee fully appre ciated its importance. In the 'current number of 'Ha Popular Science Afontfily there is n comprehen sive discussion of the spirit of. manual training by C. Ilnnford Henderson , professor of physics and chemistry in the Philadelphia manual training school. Regarding the school , in a general sense , as simply a tool , and n very plastic ono at that , not too sacred to bo sharpened and altered , whenever by so doing it can bo mndo to accom plish bettor work'Profes-jor Henderson observes that the grout question con cerning the schools is the very simple ono : What olToct has the Institution upon its pupils ? What , sort of mon and women does it make out ol thorn ? The whole forcq of the school should bo devoted to the ono supreme issue the boy himself. "If , while you are making n , man , you can also maku a scholar , it will bo well , but look to the man first. ' ' The end of education being discipline , the subjects chosen for study are loss important than 'the spirit in which the .study Is pursued. "On some unaccountable theory of cul ture , " says Professor Hciulorson , "years are devoted to languages that one will never use , and pre cious momenta squandered on the geography of places ono will never see or hear of. And so ono might fol low the entire list ot studicsomdortuicen in the majority of schools. They seem hopelessly inadequate. ' ' The spirit of manual training , ns Professor Ilondor.son dolinos it , is the attainment of results that will inlluenco the conduct of life. The manual train ing school has a purpose much more profound than that ol merely training the hand. It has come in recognition of the growing demand for n com plete man. The specific purpose of such schools is to offer aa education thai includes as far as possible all of the faculties. Its favorite maxim , is , "Put the whole boy to school. " Its mode of carrying out this purpose is the very practical ono of occupying the time in any way , formal or informal , that will best load to the end proposed. Professor Hondeirson observes that the time is a critical ono for the manual training school , now In its formative period , Two rival theories contend for the mastery of its future. The ono regards manual training as an end in itself , and subordinates educa tion to technical-skill. The other theory is that the aim of the school is to prepare for complatoness of life , that the school is n purely edu cational institution , and is industrial only in making use of the tools of in dustry to accomplish its chosen purpose. The manual work , like the work in science and literature , is simply a moans of development. Those who hold to the latter theory , among them evi dently Professor Henderson , believe that the object of manual training is the production ot thoughtful , self-re liant honest mon. Professor Henderson deplores the fact that at the several manual train ing schools established in America the artisan spirit is moro preva lent than the educational. This means , ho says , that unless the advocates of iho higher position are alert and vigil ant the fine opportunity for broader culture olTcrcd by manual training will bo lost in now teachings. The man- clement will go under and the world of things will again rule. The discussion of this very interesting and important subject by Professor Henderson is clear and candid , fairly representing both the beauty of the system and its dantror. In conclusion ho says : "Tho spirit of manual training represents rather an ideal , which in moments of extramo hopefulness wo are tempted to believe that we have partially roali/od , nnd in moments of discouragement wo still hold to bo worthy of our effort. " A LOST OPPORTUNITY , ' Americans returning from Europe all agree in saying that the 'United States has. not done itself honor at the Paris exposition. All the reports are not equally severe upon the American ex hibit , but they are alike to the effect that it is most inadequately representa tive of our natural resources and pro ductions. Some go so far as to say that in its entirety it is inferior to thut of the leant of the several South American countries. This may bo giving the ex hibit greater discredit than it deserves , but it loaves no doubt that a serious mis take has been made by our people in not taking udvuiitago of the great opportunity ollornd by the French exposition - position to familiarize the people of other nations with the extent nnd im portance of this country's productions. Hero , certainly , was the best possible chance for the producers and manufac turers of the United States to thorough ly advertise to the world our resources and our claims to the consideration ot foreign buyers , and wo have neglected to take advantage of It. A few of the features of the American exhibit nro. it is true , unsurpassed. In the oloctrio department every other nation is far behind ua , and in two or throe other lines wo are in tha front rank , but this only serves to suggest what the exhibit might bo if an adequate inter est hud been taken in it , nnd docs not excuse us for falling in that interest. Ono olfect is to humiliate Americans who visit the exposition , but this is an inconsiderable matter compared with the unfortunate sacrifice of the best opportunity over afforded us to show the world what we have , because no previous international exhibition at tracted the attention of foreign people so largely as this has done , Shall wo bo able to rotrlov o what wo have thus log Jkt the proposed Amo rl- can isilion In 1892 ? It la not probable 1 Under 1 no circumstances is it like vtl ml , there can bo attracted to this ci mil ry more than n very small porcontti o of the millions of Europe nns who an have attended the French oxposith Doubtless wo may safely count upon a larger number ot visitors from nbiTpn tit the next exposition than came to tlmt of 1870 , nnd ospoctally will there bo a larger representation of the people oPsWith nnd Central America , but wo can not reasonably hope to. make up for the loss of opportunity which the French exposition gnvo us. That mla- lake is irreparable. A JUDICIAL OUNT1WNIAL. The legal fraternity of the country will bo interested in the proposal of the Now York state bar- association to colo- brnto the ono hundredth anniversary of the institution of the judiciary de partment of the United Htatoa" govern ment. The federal supreme court was organized in the city of Now York on the first Tuesday of February , 1700 , SG that the uroposotl celebration will take place intthnt month next year. A com mittee of arrangements is to bo ap pointed to formulate n plan , nnd it is to bo presumed that in- vittttlons will bo extended to the judiciary and to leading lawyers of all the states to participate in the cora- momorativo exorcises. The supreme court at its first session consisted of a chief justice and live as sociate justices. The first chief justice was John Jay , of Now York , nnd the five associates wore John Rutledgo , ol South Carolina , William Cushlng , ol Massachusetts , James Wilson , of Penn sylvania , John Bluif , of Virginia , and Robert H. Harrison , of Maryland. The names of some of those jurists , nnd par ticularly that of the first chief justice , are eminent In the judicial history of the country. With perhaps the single - glo exception of John Marshall the numo ot no jurist this country hue produced ranks higher than thut ol John Jav. The importance ot the federal judi ciary in our system of government ron- pors appropriate the commemoration ol the onranization of the Supreme court ns the ono hundredth anniversary ol that event. Furthermore , such a re view of tlicj work of that great tribunal as would beVa proper and essential purt of such atommomoratlon ! would bo u source of interest nnd pride to the Amer ican pooolo. The Supreme court of the United Stales is undeniably the foremost judicial tribunal of the world , and none other can present a coiitury'ti record of greater wisdom , purity and patriotism. It may not bo un easy matter - tor to arrange a celebration that would bo especially attractive , except in its intellectual features , since there could appropriaSi } Dc nothing about it of public pageantry or display , but it is possible to rtmdor it highly interesting , nnd undoubtedly the New York State Bar association can bo rolled upon to do this. Tlio ° idea of commemorating the anniversary is a good ono and ought to bo successfully carried out. GLADSTONE'S GOLDEN WEDDING. The celebration of the golden wed ding of Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone is an event memorable in the history of Eng land's grout statesman. It recalls the marriage of William Ewart Gladstone on July 2-5 , 1839 , to Miss Catherine Glynn , daughter of Sir Richard Glynn , of Hawardon xjastlo , and that for half a century these two worthy people hnvo passed hand in hand through a most happy and fruitful union. Eight sons and daughjLora wore born to them and some of those have achieved renown and bid fair to pass their father's name in honor to future generations. On the verge of eighty , Gladstone retains his mental vigor and still remains a great loader of his party and the best loved man in all Great Britain. No loss endowed dewed with noble qualities is the woman who has been the helper and the counselor of her husband and who has shared with him the triumphs and the disappointments of his long nnd honorable political career. Mrs. Glad stone is essentially domestic in her character - actor , cherishing her husband , her family and her Homo. vVithal she has largo mental powers as well as spir itual graco. She is strongly intellect ual and has proven herself , a most worthy helpmate to her noble husband. To tow mon Is it given to colobruto their golden wedding. To a still fewer number is it granted to pass.fifty years of wedlock In cordial sympathy and domestic felicity. Such lives flowing as a tranquil river , faithful to noble purposes and high endeavors , sanctify marriage to the high plane which it should hold. While Gladstone will bo remembered in history as n pow erful factor in statcscruft , bis immortal ity will bo sweetened with the thought that his married life was aa pure and serene ns jjjls 'public career has boon manly anuV.upblomished. A I'AUT qf fifty American work men froiUt-iflU parts of the coun try and "representing our lending industries- just sot sail to visit the Paris1 Exposition at the ex pense of ffcrjpps' league of western nowspaporiU' fl'ho trip will include a tour through the French manufacturing centers , asrnll ' as a visit to the loading English ind.'u.gjtrinl centers.

This movement , sot on foot by private enterprise , is likely to lend to many more such similar excur sions , where the workmen of the old and now world can moot and compare notes ns to their relative advantages.

POINTERS ON STATE POLITICS The latest accessions to the ranks of canill dates for governor , according to the l-'ro niont Tribune , arc Cnptain G. M. Humphrey of Pawnee , and Goncr.U A. H. Connor , ol Kearney. It is anticipated that In a ycai from now the ranks will bo full. "The contest for the republican nomina tion next year for governor of Nebraska wil possess no more interesting features than th < strife thut will bo waged for the attorney generalship , " says the Hastings Nobrasknn "Governor Thayer is out of the Held foi another term and General Loeso will not l > ( a candidate for re-election. The way Is therefore open for a host of aspirants. Foul gentlemen hnvo been named who are ex pccted to enter the race for attorney genera J. M. Stewart , former deputy ; Guorgo Hastings , Lou Irvine , of Kearney , and D. F. Osgood , of Tocumseh. " The Sutton Advertiser seconds the nomina tion of General Connor for governor , and says ho "would make a bettor governor than several of the men who have been mon often mentioned for that position. Brlnt him out and let him run. " The democratic David City Press Is evi dently distrusted with its party Jn Nebraska , and oxclutins : "As the only thing which thi democratic party has , so far. over accom plished in this itnto was to furnish an excuse for the worst clement in the republican party to perpetuate themselves In power , by keep ing alive the hates of the past , wo are nol certain but the party itself could go into in ocuous duotitudo for about seven years. Bj that time the mortgago-rlddon farmers ol the west will have their prejudices pretty wall blistered out of them , and might bo wil ling to listen to a little democratic common sense. " Says the Falruury' Gazatto ; 'Two 01 thrco State papers which are run in the in tercst of politicians who are figuring on being the next governor , are fearfully wor ried lest Governor Thayer should bo In the way , nnd they proceed to announce him a candidate mid then attack him with nil the energy with which their diminutive souls arc capable. Governor Thnyor probably never thought of being a candidate again , but if the people uslc him to servo a third term bo doubtless will. Ho Is making a good record as an executive and the people , who like fair play , will resent this mud-slinging. Our advice to these fellows is that unless they wish to sco the governor again nom inated by acclamation they bad bust change their course. " i No efforts are being spared by political tricksters and those who have some political axes to grind or debts to pay , to onduco the Farmer's Alliance to enter the political arena in some form or another , says the Cus- tor Leader. Every allurement Is being hold out to the organisation , nnd projudtco Is ap pealed to , to further the ends of the schem ers , to ontrtip the alliance into some political movement whluh these very crafty conspira tors know full well will endanger tha parpo - tulty oN tbo nlllance and render it of no bouo'flt to any ono. As wo said weeks ago , tbo alliance has n grand mission to per form ; but it is not in the political Hold aa an organization , and if It fails In its mis sion , wo predict that it will go to pieces upon political breakers. Lot ovary member vote and act as ho pleases as a political factor , and let all who have the accomplishment of tlio true ends of the alllancn at heart work to keep down any tendency to bo invoigicd by scheming politicians or 'disgruntled news papers Into any concerted political move ment. Politics never mixed well with any thing else , and any attempt to mingle the conflicting political Interests of the various parties and their Innumer able factions with the principles ex pounded by the farmer's alliance , must prove disastrous to the Allianro. Wo have ovcr.v confidence In tbo good judgment and Intelligence of the Alliance , as a whole , and fool aura thai If reason and good common soiiso are In the majority , and wo believe they are , that no scheme , no matter how art fully planned , jtvlll succeed with tampering with the Alliance as an organization.

"Say , Swipes , " said ono , "I'll trade shines will yo. " "I'll go yo , " was the reply. So Swipes shlncd Koddy's nowshoos , analleddj returned the compliment to Swluos. "Whoro did you get your shoes , boysl" thov were asked. "Oh , do cor'ncr ho gives 'cm ' to us , " said Kcddy. "Yes , dcyoomosoff do stiffs In do morgue , " piped Swipos. "Well nro you not afraid to wear dead men's shoes , they might carry some disease ; nnd then they might hannt , you. " "Oh rnts , " said Swipes , "dat don't cut no flgcor wld me nn' Keddy. Say , I'd wear n dead woman's bustle if I litul to , but I don't have to. Duy ain't no spook shoes can blufl me , I'm tough , Say , ain't ilcy dandles ] " nnd ho gazed admiringly at his shining pedal ex tremities. "Yes , " said the coroner , "we give nwny the shoos that como hero with corpses. Some tlmos wo got four or flvo pairs among the effects of strangers who die In the city , nnd some very good shoos too. They are never claimed and we give them to the boys who need them. " "Don't the boys nomotimot soil the shoes you give them , and go back to their old loves I" ho was asuod. "No , hardly over ; wo know tha boys , nnd they nro pretty square , nnd when they ask for shoes they generally use them. "But It would astonish you , " continued the coroner , "to sco some of the people who nsk us for shoes. Kogular duties , you know. They como in and say they hnvo a poor fol low out of a job up at their honso who needs a pair of shoes Uadly , Then they pick out the best looking pair In sight , thank us pro fusely in the name of their friend out of a job , nnd go. "When I moot , them on the street the next day they don't seem to notice mo , because they have the very shoes on themselves. I have several customers of that kind. Oh , Micro's lots of great people In thU town. " # * A little knot of bright looking men were standing under the I'axton house porch chat ting idly ns they smoked. Ono of them was a traveling man , nnd spoke of a certain Omaha merchant , who Invariably endeav ored to gain some advantage that was not strictly upright In his business deals. "I have to Iccop awake when soiling to him , " ho said , "and its not the plcnsantcst thing in the world to fool that your customer is not on the square exactly. " "That surprises mo , " said another , "for I have always understood that Mr. Blnnk was a pillar of the church and a very devout man. " "Ho Is , " replied the drummer , with a chuckle , "ho's a daisy In the church , but bless you , that's part of his regular business. I respect a truly religious man , one who Is thoroughly sincere In his convictions. But the man who goes to church merely for cer tain mercenary advantages , and sings and prays loud and long and this kind of church gear is always loud and long is meaner than a yellow dog. " "Ienow / a merchant In this town , " re marked a quiet young man , "wFio worked ono church of a certain denomination in this town , and wont nt it in a business way. Al ways bad a benevolent sinllo for everyone in church , patted the little boys on the head , kissed the little girls ; had a tender , linger ing , fatherly hand shako for the good looking young ladies , and nil that sort of thing , you know , and eot to bo a deacon and n digni tary In the church. " "Hushed the collection plato , I'll bet , " ventured n sporty young fellow. "Yes , nnd was superintendent in the Sun day school. After ho had worked the church pretty thoroughly and made lots of friends who always traded with 'Brother Saintly , ' ho switched oft to a church in another part of the city. I tnll you that man had a 'sys tem' ' nnd know how to work It. What do you think of a man who would do that , any way 1" 1 think he's a dead sport , said the sporty young man , with a laugh , "and has his health with him. There's lots of old roosters in this town who null their goods in church , " * "But merchants are not the only ones who work the congregational racket , " said a good looking traveling man. " 1'vn lived a good many years In Omaliu , and could name llfty professional mon who have , for years , worked the churches , clubs and secret socie ties In order to increase ttit-ir circle of ac quaintances and fatten their pockotbooic. " "Yes , and some of them are pretty shady , too , " remarked the sport , "regular old rounders on the quiet. " "They apply for admission to the club , nnd are generally elected because of the absouco of Eomo member who is onto them. This fivas them the reputation of well-to-do re spectability , and that's what they need. " "Politicians are not averse to using these mediums to HUCCCSS. They join two or three secret organizations nnd use the lullu- unco thus acquired to bolster up their reputa tions , elect them , and protect them wlion thny commit Irregularities in ofllco. Of course the societies huvo their own way of punishing their dalliiquunt members , but they , by nome moans or other , are able to disauado thn odlcerfl of the law from bringing the culprit before the courts. It's a great thing to hnvo Inlloocnce. " "I could muko a trip around town almost any evening nnd visit the saloons and dls- reputable places , and ihow yon u good many men , professional and otherwise , who ara church mom bars , and belong to as many secret societies us they can got into. The congregation only know them in church , and respect them as good Christians , nnd the respectable clement of the sociotlea tnoy belong - long to don't got on to thorn. " "It just makes my hair stand on end to hear ono of those fellows sny 'amen , ' " said the sport , "louder than any ono ulco In church , you know , and the depth of pathos in thulr voices whun they ofllclato at a prayer moot ing Is simply heartrending. Oh.lt mnltos mo tlroil. " "I'm ' nfrnld ot tlioso follows who pray nnd exhort In tlmt loud , complacent , eoinl- professional way , ' continued the philosophic ) sport , "and endeavor to have an little to do with thorn ns possible , I never was much 'stuck' on n hypocrite anyway. But , ha concluded with neigh , thcro't nn awful lot of thorn In Omnhn.

"Mr. Mnul1 said Jack , "mo bye BO * to mo , BOZ ho , 'don't drink any moro whisky , dad.

M. lUioom , Kiq. : This will tntroiluco n reformed drunkard nnd his reformed son. Do what you can for thorn. " Jack bestowed many hoiiisons on the head of Mr. Maul with nil the richness and thick ness of his mitivo tongue , nnd loft In n Imppy frame of mind for Mr. Kheom's ofUcc. Jack cannot road , neither can his son , but confident that a rocommondiuion , coming from Mr. Mnul , would bo omnipotent ho presented It with n flourish. Mr. Hoem read the note , nnd bubbled over with laughter. "What's the trouble , " micod Jack , "what nro yoz lanin' at yo dlvill" Mr. Klieem rend the note to Jack.and Jack bulled over with fury , "Woll , tlio spalpeen an' I t'ought ho was coin' us justice.

When ho was informed tlmt Mr. Mnul had not. committed un offense which would wnr- rnnt his Incarceration in a dank dunguon , ha was much disgusted.
