A curious application oC tho princi
ple of the legislation which the silver
wen of the country are urging upon
Conics is shown in a bill recently in
tiotlured bj Senator Vnnre. As every
one knows the piopositlou of the silver
jnen is that the Government shnll pur
chase, say four-anil a half million dol
litis's worth of silver bullion every
month, anil issue, upon that deposit in
thoTrcnsuiy, silver certificates which
.vhsill have all the qualities of money
nm) be a legal lender.
The objection to this scheme is that
Mi effect might be to dump the silver
pioiluet of this aud every other country
on tho United States Treasury, nnd
that without the legal tender quality to
bo imposed bylaw, ceitillcatos issued
upon such deposits would be in the
nntiiio of merowaiehonscieceipts. The
eeitifieates would simply lepicsent the
value of the goods stoied.
Now, Senator Vance's bill icfuscsto
confine the Government's operation in
this diieetion to silver. Ho contends
that silver is not tho only pioduct which
lias value or upon which eeitifictfes
lcpiescnting value may bo founded.
Aiioiillngly, his bill requites tho
OoMinmctit to purchase cotton, wheat,
coin, oats and tobacco aud to piovide
piopcr storage for thum. It calls for
the election in eery county in the
Vnlted States of a 1'edeial waiehouse
whole the owncisof agricultural prod
uctb may deposit the same. It also
piovides that such depositors of agii
ultiiral products shall receive fiom the
Tuasuiy eiulity-llrc per cent, of the
value of their pioducts in notes of the
L'pJted States, these notes to be n part
ot the public currency.
Strange as tbo purport and scope of
this bill may seem, ills earnestly sup
posed by the meat body of thcFarnieis'
Alliance and by the Knights of Labor.
The truth is that the wildest ideas are
ntloat as to tho character, volume and
efficiency of current money, and as to
the duties and powois of government.
Hut there is nothing, inhciently, moic
ahsuid in a Government plan of pur
chasing cotton and issuing ceitifieates
on its value than in a scheme whereby
the Government purchases silver and
upon it issues cuircncy to its full

Tho, llev. Dr. Talmsige, who is noth
ing if not sensational, has recently
added to bis many instances of ques
tionable and eccentiic speech the
stiiking saying that "an editor may be
n Christian." The Doctor states that
lie has been led to this admission by
lils knowledge of several favorable
hpecimens of the journalistic profession.
If a retort ever proved anything or
helped any cause it might be sufficient
to answer the Urooklyn dlvino by say
ing that it is also possible for d
rnonchcr to bo a Christian. Dut possi
bly it may be better to remind him of
vh,aibe may have temporarily forgptten,
namely, that any man may bo a Chris
tian who accepts the Christian law and
makes bis life conformable thereto.
In addition to this it may be well to
toy that an editorial position gives et
i optional opportunities lor the exercise
of the Christian virtues. "When justice
should bo done it occupies a fiont place
In its advocacy. When mercy should
temper justice the editor's inlluence is
Only those who know the interior of
newspaper offices can appioMmntcly
estimate the number of reputations that
am purposely saved fiom wreck, aud
the number of homes that are kept from
mill thiough journalistic discretion.
In Mr. Talmage's own experience news
juvper foibearancc and chaiity have been
maikcd charactei Ihtics, and it is safe to
say that hu would never have achieved
his pieent position but for editorial aid
nnd favor. Ho should be fully per
suaded in his own mind that in no posi
tion is there more charity toward human
failings or a moro vital and energetic
interest in human piogicfcs than In that
of nn editor.
An editor a ChiUlian' We should
iy t.o. He has moio oppoitunlties iu
that way than any other man. Wo
cannot say that overy editor is a Chris
tian, for we happen to know some dis-
t ouraging specimens. Hut we have no
hesitation in saying that every editor
ought to be.
Nobody opposes Sunday lest. Hut
o bring back tho "Sabbath observance"
that some self-styled lefouneis are con
tending for would turn back tho wheels
nf time for moio than a centuiy.
It may bo perfectly true that "overy
cliien needs ono day iu sovon for lost
to bo at his best for the longest peilod,"
Hut this docs not ncccssuiily mean that
it is the business of tho Government to
c ompel the people to rest on a particu
nr day of tho week or to picsciibo for
them what, on that day, they should or
should not do.
Tho theory of Sabbath obligation is
purely a icliglous matter, with which
eglalatlon should not Interfere, St.
J?Mil says; "Owj man esteems one day
nboo another; nrmlhci oiilcums every
day nllltc," nnd. In olTeet, ho Inculcates
the tiuo doctrine of liberty when ho
litres thnt a man should in should not
honor an obscrviinc'd just as hu I "per
suaded In his own mind." That there
is a ilnv of tho wcuk of such wicrod ob
ligation ns to lcqulre tho sloppiirn of
trains nnd uowspnpors, of Mirel-cnis,
milk wagons and many other conven
iences of civilization cannot be sustained
niint t from theological dogma.

and stepped with so much aleitnciS,
that bo at once nttr.ictcd my attention.
A man piobably live feet eight, and
while not stoutly, compactly built. Ills
hair nnd side whiskers, worn in the
Fnglish stjlc, were nn iron gray, and
his eyes n kiudly blue. The morning
was waim, and ho had no overcoat, but
his walking suit fitted him to perfec

the lavender pantaloons, and the
silk hat, nil looked as if they
had been worn for the first time.

Hon. Charles II. Gibson of Mmyhind,
who by many Indies is considered tbo

for his skill iu cooking terrapin. He
says that the credit is not duo to him,
but to an old coloicd "mammy" who
lives in the countiy near Faston, Mr.
Gibson's home. The old woman ob
tained the recipe from Hon. Thomas II.
Bayly of Accomac County, Ya., in
whose family sho lived for many years.
Mr. Gibson beard of the famous ter
rapin stews the old woman prepared,
and after repeated visits obtained tho
formula by tho judicious presentation
of sundry blight-colored handkerchiefs.
