THE MUTUAL FRIEND.
Mbulton, the mtitiiil friend of Iteeclii rand
Tilton 111 the great scandal suit, is duad. It
seems that he fared wore than either of tho
men whom he tried to befriend. Jt will be
remembered thnt Moullon during tho trial
stated that Heeeher had acknowledged to
him thit he had hid an iutriguo with some
woman, who was not named, but the infer
ence was so strong that Edna Dean Proctor
sued Moulton, and it co-t him or somebody
lso $9,000 to get out of it. Old Needier is
a sly one, but it is thought that he is about
through mowing his wild oats. .
Tho Eiole'h editorial political preachers,

forbear giving what since has been developed

that speech thnt judgment giint tho author

Lithe nggrrgatc prcaclierMU-obeitei than

havo done more to destroy the power of the
pulpit than all the editors put together. As
some vi riter lately remarks: "A man mav

good at detecting sham and frauds. The

poor bankers. He could be imposed upon

THE ASHLAND TROUBLE.
A dispatch from Dodge City to tho AYlch

at this plaee says : "At this writing over
100 cowboys arc in the villago and further

not been a half dozen cowboys in town at
any time since the trouble, aud further that
cowboys and cattlemen have no sv mpatbv

been cowboys, but had been out of employ

GOOD WORDS FOR KANSAS.
Kx-Gov. Anthony, in a recent interview
published in tho Chlcaco Time, lias eorae
good words to say for Ksmof, which indi
cate that when properly approached the
lieart ol the frigid statesman is still
in the richt place and that he understands
t)iifviv(f ICanse puh nnd prosperity.
"1 Mould rather stand before an audience

deferring to tho educational interests ol
Kansas he ga e utterance to thc-o trutmui
"We haie the most ucrfect common school
svstem in America, not cien excepting Mas
sachusetts. We have sir thousand school
houses costing 00,000,000. We havo better
school houses, better equipments and better
instructors than any other state. Aiiai ac

animation among our joutli.
.J. .1. Hayne-, of Vermont, it seems to me,
mistakes in his management of the Plymouth
Itockhcnt. He savs he feeds them all they
will eat, then states that four Leghorns will
lav as many eggs as twent' of them. 1
never had "better luck than with the Ply
mouth Jtocks as lav crs. Uut it must not be
lonrotttn that they aro ft very different kind
of lien from the Leghorns. They arc natur-
nllv of-'n tlucrish nature, and fatten easily
fur that reaon. Tho Leghorns are of a ner
vous disposition, and hence, like a nervou
woman, will not fatten at all. Therefore,
especially when confined in 11 narrow
compass, it should not he leu on jour
hearty food, or the result will bo few eggs
and very often death. 1 haic had the Ply
mouth hocks lay all tho winter well, and I
think they are more likely to do so than the
lghorn when properly fed, because they
will stand the cold weather better than the
latter. In the winter I havo usually fed in
the morning with about two parts of shorts
and one part of corn meal, mked warm
with somo red pepper in it occasionally, and
whole corn at night. I haic tried to Iced
so that each fowl could have n crop well
filliwl fhrpn times u dav. nerhnns irilimr at
the rate of three small haudful each per
day. l hilo tho Leghorns might lay well
w ith food before them all the time, 1 do
not think the Plymouth Itocks will.

down into the crater 2,000 feet, the sides be

of tropical llowers and shrubs. The active
volcano is situated in the island of Hawaii.

to commemorate tho departure of

of the French

THE FALL IN PRICES.
There ! no mistake about tho tendency of
wages. They are going down in all kinds of
mauuficturiiig business. Tho operatives
geiicnllv exhibit the good sense to accept
tho reduction as inevitable. They know-that
their living expenses have been decreasing.
Provisions, clothing, manufactured articles
of almost even kind, articles of both neces
sity and luuri, have been steadily falling in
market value for a vear, and it is "legitimate
that wages should Vail in proportion. The
reduction will bo comparatively slow to af
fect thq west, because manufactories here
aro mostly local and independent of market
values and house building and farm work
depend mainly upon immigration. What
should full in proportion to the decrease of
mechanical wages and cost of living is pro
fessional charges, price- of public cntcrtain
lnenls, interest on money, and transportation
and transmission charge's, and last, but not
leat, public expense's and taxation. Empo
