year, increasing $600,000 each
year until tho total appropriations
amount to 1-1.000,000 per annum.

OMAHA, Feb. W.-To the Editor of The
Boo. Abe Martin said recently that "The
less a teller knows, tho more ho argues,"
but I believe Abe Is wrong on this point
I havo always noticed that when Ignorant
men start nn argument, they cannot dis
pute long without getting mad, and arc
forced to either drop the question under
debate or settle it by brute force.
I take tho opposite view and hold that
the smarter the feller is, the longer he
will argue, for If two men In an argu
ment do nothing but contradict, and are
unable to support their own opinion by
arguments drawn from analogy or ex
perience, or any other logical source, the
dispute will como to an end very quickly.
It seems that every man loves to show
himself superior to his follows In some
way, and as a wise man knows how little
both he and his opponent really know,
he readily aces that thero are always two
rides to every question, and that by
maintaining his position cither by logical
or spurious deductions, ho enjoys a. brief
triumph at the expense ot his adversary.
Now the truth is that an Ignorant roan
cannot arguo at all, he can only contra
dict without giving reasons; another
truth is, that nothing can bo proven true
without tdmo discussion, and usually not
without a long and tedious argument, and
tho Ignorant are Incapablo ot under
standing or making uso ot such a lengthy
process of reasoning.
Socrates was extremely fond of long
arguments; Or. Johnson, the author ot
tho "Rambler," would engago in lengthy
debates concerning metaphysics; Prof.
Huxley, tho agnostic, argued for years
with anybody and everybody that saw
fit to reject his opinions; Lincoln and
Douglas neglected their business in order
to argue politics, and even Christ disputed
with the doctors of tho law.
The only people who can or do argue are
tho educated the serious part of man
kind; fools and children laugh and sing
and enjoy llfo; Indians fill their bellies
and fall asleep; the whlto and black trash
In tho south acrapo tho fiddles and thump

S0NQ OF THE FEOSTBITTEN.
There Is many a poet that's ready)
To gush at tho first hint of spring;
To chirp at the first tender leaflets,
To enthuse at tho flit of a wing;
But I love to sing of the blizzard .
That whirls the whlto flakes all about)
Whllo the furnace Is smoking and chok-J
And the plumber Is kept on his route.
The "whispering leaf" is a dead one,
The "babbling brook" .Is passe;
They've been overworked In past ages,
Now In volumes dust-grimed let them
While I sing of the frost on the window
Ani the music of the wheels on tho
And the voice of the old furnace poker
As It coaxes tho embers to glow.
The "cool green depths of the forest"
"Verdant field," "sunny glade," "shady
Stirred the soul of the old-fashlonoj. poet
Till It burst Into leaf In a book;
But hoary old Winter can furnish
A landscape that's quite to my tasto
When his wild winds are howling Uko
O'er BOtno bleak, dreary, desolato waste.
