GOODWIN'S WEEKLY. 3 jjj
that the experiences of the -iQSt five years -would
be sufficient. Wo saw prices follow the increase
in per capita of money with exact progression;
when a great ratio of that money was last au
tumn taken from the circulation we saw the
shrinkage. One would think that Professoi
Loughlin would prjofer to keep quiet on that
Death ol Mrs. Peery.
The death, last Monday, of Mrs. Luacino Hoge
Peery was a sorrow over which the only consola
tion that can be felt is that her death was a re
lease from hopeless and long continued suffer
ing. It is a comfort to think that while she was
sleeping the tired heart ceased so gently to beat
that the transition was painless, that the slumber
drifted into the dreamless one without so much
as a sigh. When one thinks of her beautiful girl
hood and the hopes that canopied it and then of
what she has since suffered, there is no thought
but of inexpressible pity and the ever returning
question, Why should it have been? God comfort
the father, mother and husband, and may the
peace that passeth all understanding fold her
close in her narrow house.
A correspondent of the New York Sun gravely
asks how Christians can road the story of the
Ben Hur chariot race in "A Tale of the Christ,"
with the betting that attended it. We think
"Christians" can put up a fine defense for it. In
the first place, the race did not come off. Lew
Wallace made that race and all the betting, and
it probably grew out of something he saw when a
boy at some cross roads in Indiana when the
wagers ran from 50 cents up to $3.00, when the
farmers' boys rods their own horses and when the
H utmost speed for 000 yards was a little over 59
M seconds. Possibly Wallace was a participant and
H was confident that his big plough horse would be
H a sure winner, but was beaten by an Indian pony.
H And ery possibly the boys told their Christian
mothers when they reached home about the race
H with all its comical features, and the Christian
H mothers and wicked boys laughed together over
H the story, not one of them all for a moment
H thinking that any wrong had been done. But a
H more serious view would bo that General Wallace
H vat trying to depict the utter wickedness of the
H world at that period and the absolute need of
H the coming of the Messiah. Why it might have
H been Sanballat who at the close of that race,
H counting his sertercii, exclaimed: "Where do
H Sec and Brut
H of fine
H Sold everywhere
these Gentiles get all the money which we get?"
But can the correspondent explain why "the
account of the race is the most attractive reading
in the book to Christians? Why the old spirit
which made Job give the vivid description of the
war hone, is still a ruling one in the souls of
men? Another thing, why the men who love
horses and horse racing "the horse tamers" of
the world are the racers who prevail on the
world's battlefields, whether in war or in the
handling of the world's great industries?
Betting of money on horse races is bad busi
ness; so is drinking; so smoking, probably; but
they are all accompaniments of man's conquest
of the earth, and so in England it is held as a
duty to adjourn Parliament on Derby Day.
The deepest sympathies of all their host of
friends go out to Mr. and Mrs Louis Gordon over
the death, last Monday of their baby boy. .
The whole little family is prostrated by sor
row, and sit, like Rachael, comfortless, weeping
for their children that are not.
Joy Go with the Boys.
Congratulations and all good wishes to the
boys who are going to see the fleet.
It ought to be the outing of their lives, and
the memory of it ought to exalt them and make
it impossible for any one of th-am to ovor do an
unmanly act. May good luck be theirs, a happy
journey and a safe return.
WASTE IN DUPLICATION.
Subscribers Must Have Two Instruments to Get
It is almost impossible for competition to work
advantageously in the telephone service, says the
New York Journal of Commerce. If there aro
two companies there is no gain so far'as their sub
scribers are concerned and there is waste of capi
tal in the duplication of facilities and the main
tenance of double service. There must be Increas
ed cost in that casa if there is to be profit for
both companies, and if there is not, one or the
other must be bankrupted by the competitive ratw Pfc
and the competition will be destroyed by its Itlt- Jjj '" '
drawal or merger, after which charges must 1 all fo
the higher for the unnecessary outlays and losses.
So far as their subscribers are not the same, the $ .
patrons of each will have a limited service and r t
cannot reach the patrons of the other. In order to h
have a complete service subscribers must take ;j
both. Not only would there be no economy in this, ' & f
but there would be confusion and vexation. Some ji? 'I
persons would have to be called up on one and 'm t
some on the other, and the customer would be lia- ! jj
ble at any moment to be called on either one or the jl
other. It requires but little imagination to com- 1 f
prohend the annoyance that might result, and m J
there has been ample demonstration of it in expe- j
lionce whore it has been tried. It requires little jl
argument to convince one that if the service can II
be kept up to the best standard available im-
provoment can be secured, and if the cost of the w
service can be kept within legitimate limits, the i
advantages of a single service, complete In itself,
is vastly greater than anything o be attained by M
Aro enroute to Salt Lake City. Every one of 'M
thorn are already sold by the Consolidated Wagon S
& Machine Co. flft
ASHES OF ROSES. 1
Into a rose jar thoughtlessly one day 'jf
I thrust rude fingers in a reckless mood, j
Drawing them forth, covered by idle play M
With flecks of ashon gray and dust of blood. m
The glory of the form forever spent, Jl
The flush of bloom, all cream and crimson, sped. m
'Twas only ash of rose," wraith of what was, m
Whispering sadly of , the past the dead. m
But out of death, there rose the perfume sweet. M
O'ormastering the forces of decay. m
Into the sunlight of a fadeless past m
It led my soul, along love's old dear way. jl
Ah! Ash of rose, of life within your gray,
E'en in decay this truth enbalmod lies t
Abiding for life's overworn and sad, &
Defying age and change love never dies.
