Massachusetts republicans,, in state

words: "We believe that this hemi
sphere is no longer a subject for Europ

oppressive occupation; that the Monroe
doctrine is a true guide for American
statesmanship, and should be maintained
toward small nations without blustering
toward great nations without cringing,
but always deliberately, temperately,
resoiutely." Small nations without
blustering, great nations without cring

Alarmed by the growing frequency
and boldnpss of train robberies, the
officials of the Chicago & Northwestern
railway have determined to take away
from temptation of the Jesse James
species of highwaymen one of the most
luring prizes carried out over the iron
rails through the west. They have
abandoned and banished the monthly
pay car. From this time henceforth
ibis old-time institution will be a thing
only of memory to" the thousands of
Northwestern employes who have await
ed its coming every thirty days all along
the lines beeween Chicago and Omaha,
Sioux City or St. Paul. Beginning with
the current month the Northwestern
company pays its rolls by checks od
Cnicago banks instead of in currency
and gold as heretofore. This change
marks the passing of the pay car, and is
a staggering blow to the profession ot
Two men went out to look for work,
one fine September day; one held a cor
ner down, in town, and talked the hours
away. He talked with sages like him
self about the country's woes, and with
a sort of pride he viewed his old and-
ragged clothes. He doubtless thought
that work would come, and beg on
bended knees, that he would go and take
a job at herding bumble bees. For days
and weeks he stood around, and talked
of woes and wrong, and squinted round
to look for work, which did not come
along. When wintery blizzards came
along and froze the beard of man, he
had no woodpile m the shed, no coal oil
in the can; he'd no tobacco in his box, or
money in the bank; the county had to
give him stuff to fill his aching tank.
The other man who hunted work went
hunting with a will; he said: I'll jump
at any job, and try and fill the bill; I'll
quarry rock or chop down trees, like
other toiling gents; if I can't make a V
a day, I'll work for fifty cents. When
winter came ho sat at ease before hia
blazing hearth; he owned a pleasant
home, although he didn't own the earth.

ed that the defense in the Dnrrant case

soon as the witnesses from Cooper Med-
ical college aro disposed of. The exam
ination or line remaining it stuaenis

He was expected to be on hand when
he is wanted this afternoon. A most
