tory of America, and finally who were
able to lucidly and .forcibly state the
reasons for and against any national
policy. In lieu of statesmanlike
qualities it was urged- that Mr.
Thompson was a benevolent man, that
he was a good business man, that he
was in control of the local machine.and
that it would be well for Lincoln, if a
senator residing here, who understood
handling, the sort of men who direct
ward politics, could be elected. It
does not effect ttie rest of the state
that Mr. Thompson has thought he
could buy disreputable men. The
rest of the state is Influenced by the
traditions of the party as to desirable
qualifications of ao United States
It is very kind of the candidate to
organize the "Thompson Tired Moth
ers' Excursion," but was it wise, con
sidering the limitations of the suf
frage, to exclude the Tired Fathers
from the refreshment and culture .of
The Sultan while refusing to pay
our bill for missionary homes and
other property dlsroyed, still pro)
poses to send Turkish troops, to China
to avenge christian missionary in
sults on the Chinese. Kings and
queens, emperors and sultans are not
consistent. The exigencies of an ab
solute reign forbid. Therefore they
are never obliged to make explana
tions or to harmonize today's conduct
and speech with yesterday's, which is
one comfort of rullsg alone without
the advice and consent of the people

AN AFTER-DINNER TALE.
"Now I have given you a good dinner,
a good cigar, and the most comfortable
lounging place in the house, and I want
you to be nice to me.'
"Why, my dear lady, am I not always
that?" and the most aggravating man
in the world, next to Jem, stretched
himself just a little more on my beauti
ful green couch.
"No, you are not. You shut yourself
up closer than a clam; especially when
you have something very rich, rare and
racy that I am just dying to hear. You
know I never gossip with any one except
you and Jem, and yet you love to pose
as a sphynx, only instead of at king un
answerable questions, you make me ask
questions that you don't answer."
"Ye gods! What a stump speaker the
woman's party lost when Jem won you. v
What have I done that I should be eo A
berated? If you had not just dined
and wined me I should leave you at
"No, you should not, for I would not
let you, This is my only opportunity to
learn ot that dear little curio, that
dainty piece of porcelain, who plays the
violin like an angel and talks like a de
mon." "I thought they used harps in
"Perhaps! I've forgotten. The other
simile is correct isn't it? '
"That Schenskow talks like a demon?
Oh, uo more like a London cabman,
I think. Do give the de'il his due and
admit that he is. at least, a gentleman.''
"What a diplomant you think you are!
As if you could make me lose my tack
by talking about your cloven-footed
friend! He's interesting, of course, or
you would not know him, but, now, I
am more curious about your musician."
"Because you haven't known him eo
"Well, he is more of a novelty. Do
yon intend to satisfy the curiosity?" i
"Curiosity, and you confess it? Marvel "
ot marvels! I shall tell Jem he has an
anomaly for a wife: a woman who ad
mits she is a lineal dsscendent of Eve."
"As a general thing you men seem to
have preferred her to Lilith'."
"Ah, but the exceptional Lilith makes
us forget our preferences in remember
"Will you forget yours now and tell
me the romance?"
"Romance? Poor little Schenskow, I
suppose, thinks it a tragedy. Queer,
isn't it, how much more dignity our
lives have for ourselves than for others
how we magnify our own doings until
they seam events of importance? I sup
pose you think the ordering and serving
of a dinner as momentous as an affair
"So long as you think eating my din
ners worth while, I shall think ordering
them well worth while."
"What a pretty speech! I succumb;,--But
why are you interested in Schens
kow's love affair? I have heard you de
clare, oyer aud over, that the personality
ot the artist has nothing to do with his
art; that good poetry is not a question
of good morals, nor fine acting attained
by being true to one's wife. Have you
never warned me not to tell you that
your favorite composer snored and that
your pet painter cheated his trades
men?" "If you were my huband, I should
poison you," I say, calmly and collect
edly. "The most annoying people in the
world are those who have so little imag
ination that they roust have a reason
for everything. I once heard a comic
opera. In that opera was a fool, who
shoved that he was one by never saying
anything but 'Why?' I know now that
the librettist who put that word into
the mouth of his simpleton was
