TUB GOLiD-HEA,DED CANE.
Al.ay Freiiclier Ifindh In It n Good Tex
I'or m Sermon.
A man with a gold-headed cane is oftcuer a
victim than a dude. He has been imposed
upon. No man will go out in cold blood, all
byhimtelf, and buy an unbecoming gold-headed
cane for his every-day use. The thing has
been given to him, and for that reason he does
not wish to sell it, give it away, lose it in a
barber shop, or leave it at home. Perhaps he
Is a small politician, in a snug place, with a
small patronage. His associates, who cannot
afford it, follow the lead of one and subscribe
for a fund to buy a gold-headed cane. The
cheerful givers give because tbcj' cannot refuse.
The cane cost seven dollars and a half, and
the man who is taken by surprise and gets it
get a chance to spend twenty-seven dollars for
wine treating the boys. Men are made popular
and poor by such presentations. The occur
rences get into the papers. The managers of
them, after drinking the wine, come with their
breaths to reporters, and tell how fine every
thing was, and ask that the speeches already
written out maj be published. Ono often
wouders concerning the opinion which the
men of future ages mu6t form of the moral
characterof this when they read of thepracticc,
bo life now, of presenting nieu with costly
gifts for simply doing tho ditties of their
callings. Could there ho a moio biting sutiro
on the dogenerauy of the times V If the caji
taiu of a steamboat or steamship makes a trip
or trips without her being wrecked or snagged
or bin Ntlng her boilers, and no one is drowned
or Mauled to death; if tho "boss" of a factory
treuts the employes with civility, as if they
weie men and not "bauds" only; if tho treas
urer of a corporation forbears by a miracle of
self-denial, during some years of temptation,
to decamp to Canada with its ready funds n
meeting is called of the men to whom ho has
been so merciful, laudatory and thankful reso
lutions are passed, and a subscription is opened
to present him with a costly gold wntch
and chain, a gold-headed cane, or a ser
vice tit plate. One would think that it was the
usual custom nay, even expected of the men
thus lewarded to drown, blow up, rob, or in
sult the persons who sail with, work under, or
trust them, if he were to judge by tho
avalanche of gratitude which their forbear
ance calls forth. It has been said with an
aiuch truth us wit of these gifts, that it Is
easier to raise a hundred dollars for the pur-chot-
of a gold watch to be presented to some
body who does not need it, thau it is to collect
that sum from tho same persons if they owed
the u.ouey. This folly of our day is rightly
burk-Kjued in an anecdote told in a New York
journal, A'gentleman in Philadelphia who
-was hsked to accompany a frieud who was go
ing aross tho Delaware to Camden refused,
for fur the passengers would vote the captain
of the ferry-boat u service of plate and he
should be called upon to subscribe !
