THURSDAY, DEC. 28, 1899.
The Republican national conven
tion will be held in the east for the
first time since 1872. In that year
it was in Philadelphia and Grant
was renominated. A good precedent.
Mr. Breidentbal says the bank
statements now being received will
how an increase in bank deposits of
at least a million dollars over three
months ago. Mr. Breidentbal furn
ishes some of the best Republican
campaign literature in circulation.
It is understood that the Bank of
England is trying to borrow $100,
000,000 in gold from the United
states. iNext we will near of a
political party in England denounc
ing the financial policy of that coun
try as being dictated by Wall street
and the Kansas farmers.
Goebel's contest bofore the Legis
lature will end just as it did before
the State Election Board. The can
didate who bad the most voteB has
been inaugurated, and the Legisla
ture will not disturb this arrange
ment. Notwithstanding that Demo
cratic majority in the Legislature,
Geebel is politically dead. All Ken
tucky Democrats are not dishonest.
Fortunately for themselves and the
state, a very large porportion of them

It may surprise some of our read
ers to learn that a college was found
ed in Manila before Horrard or Yale
earlier, indeed, than the common
school of Now England. St. Joseph's
college was founded in 1595, and
graduated its first class in 1601.
Prior to 1768 it was in charge and
under control of the Jesuite, who
were made trustees of the institution
by it donors at the time of its crea
tion. When the Jesuites were ex
pelled frem Spain and its colonies
the governor general declared the
property of the college forfeited and
converted the buildings into barracks
for the soldiers. An appeal was
taken to the crown, the action of the
governor was reversed, and the
college placed underline control of
the Metropolitan church of Manila.
At the present time this most ancient
seat of learning in the new America
is largely devoted to medicine and

Tbe first signet croup is hoarseness,
and in a child subject to that disease it
xmay be taken as a sure sign of the ap-
jiroacuai an attack. FoUowing this
hoarsenes is a peculiar rough cough. If
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is given
s Mon'as the child becomes hoarse, or
even after the croupy cough appears, it
, will preveat the attack. It is used in
assay thousand of homes in this broad

One of the interesting, almost
paradoxical, results of existing con
ditions is discovered in the prices
that are paid for what may be called
scrap iron, in oiner words, we rail
ways are finding that there is almost
a profit in taking up their old rails
and substituting for them new steel
rails. OIJ iron rails are worth as
much as pig iron, almost as much as
new steel are. While this seems ab
surd, at least, to superfical thinking,
yet when it is remembered that one
of the greatest embarrassments our
manufacturers are meeting with is in
securing a supply of raw material,
then it is easy to understand why
there is no absurdity in the state
ment and no real paradox in the sit
uation. In the new Congress the Republi
cans will have in the office of Speak
er a very hot-headed and impulsive
man. If there is anybody on the Re
publican side capable of first class
floor leadership he has yet to show it"
Old Joe Cannon .is the best of the
lot, but he is too busy with appro
priations to devote any time to
general politics. Grosvenor ia an
admiral debater and fine talker but,
brilliant commander of division that
he is, nobody knows what.he would
do with an army. Cousins is a
magnificent orator, Doliver a charm
ing speaker and Hepburn a fine
partisan debater when he meets
with a ignoramus on the otber side.
Dalzell has not the presence of a lead
er, Payne has not the ability of one
and Moody has not sufficient ex
perience to lead such a body. Bou
telle is too impetuous, Hitt is not im
petuous enough, and Steele is not
elastic enough. "On form" it is
about the poorest layout for a major
ity side in many years.
"Going like Hot Cakes," is
putting it mild when speaking
of that sample line of New
Fall Coats and Canes at so

prices, at the Bee Hive.
It might greatly shock some of our
people, who are tenderfooted on the
question or public expense, to read
the recommendations of Jefferson, to
the effect that surplus money in the
federal treasury should be
distributed among the States to be
used for educating the people's child
ren. Pursuing the advice of Jeffer
son, there were actually given
to the States, to be added to their
school funds, several millions of dol
lars out of the surplus revenues in
the United States treasury, this dur
ing Jackson's second administration.
The man who wrote that all men
have inalienable rights to life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness, also
held that all men's children must
have placed within their reach, by
the state, the means of obtaining
such education as would fit them to
be useful citizens, worthy units of the
mass, in a free, representative demo
cracy. He was even in advance, on
this question, of the New Fnglaod
Taken at His Word.
Evan P. Howell tells a good story
about a Southerner who brought suit
against the South Carolina railroad
for damages to his property. He
lost the case in the Superior court,
but insisted upon carrying it to the
Supreme court, when he represented
his own cause.. He began his argu
ment by saying whimsically;
"May it please the court, there is
an old French adage which says; 'A
man who is his own lawyer hath a
a fool for a client
The next week the Supreme court
pronounced its decision, which was
adverse to the Southerner. He was
in Augusta at the time, but received
the announcement of his second and
final disappointment by meant of a
telegram sent him by a prominent
Judge who was an intimate friend of
his. The telegram read as follows:
"Judgment for defendant in error.

court" New York Telegraph.

History records the existence' of a
billy goat, dear to the heart of his mas.
ter, bnt generally objected to by the
community on account of hss buck-
ing proclivities. Nothing
empt from his attack, and success
only made him more and more ag
gressive. One day he felt unusually
nuenacioss. and in this frame of
mind he wandered down on the rail
road. Just then an express train
came in sight It was drawn by (the
most powerful engine in the coun
try, called General Prosperity. Billy
saw it and prepared for the battle of
his life. As it approached he got
himself in position and bucked. The
result was disastrous. Billy lay
bleeding and dead by the roadside,
and General Prosperity, with its
train, passed on. Hearing of Billy's
death, his owner strolled down to
where he lay, and thus soliloquized,
"Oh. Billy, why'did you try it! Billy
you were a nice goat ; you were the
bravest goat I ever saw; but, blame
your judgment!" -
The Future Life.
I feel in myself the future life. I
am like a forest once cut down, the
new shoots ore stronger and 'livelier
than ever. I am rising, I know,
toward the sky. The sunshine is on
my head. The earth gives me its
generous sap, but heaven lights me
with reflection of unknown worlds.
You say the soul is nothing but the
resultant of the bodily powers. "Why,
then, is my soul more luminous
when my bodily powers Jbegin to
fail? Winter is on my head, but
eternal spring is in my heart. There
I breathe at this hour the fragrance
of the lilacs, the violets and the roses
as at twenty years. The nearer I ap
proach the end, the plainer I hear
around me the immortal symphonies
of the worlds which invite me. It is
marvellous, yet simple. It is a airy
tale, and it is history. JFor half a
century I have been writing my
thoughts in prcse and ia verse; his
tory, philosophy, drama, romance,
tradition, satire, ode, and song I
have tried it all. But I feel I have
not said the thousandth part of what
is in me. When I go down to the
grave I can say, like so many others,
"I have finished my day's jvork."
My day's work will begin again
the next morning. The tcmb is not
a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It
closes on the twilight; it opens with
the dawn. Victor Hugo.
"Hello ; Mamie, is that you?" "It is.
"Where did you set that pretty fascinator
I saw you wear yesterday?" "At the

best place to buy?" "The best ot all."

Rev. Albert E. Jones, preaching at
the First Baptist church in Kansas
City, gave a blood-curdling descrip
tion of the evils of saloons.v Extracts
are given here to illustrate the ex
tremist's point of view:
"The saloon was bora from the
bottomless pit, and hell dates its
calendar from its birth. The temple
of God is the family, and drink is the
profaner of this temple. There are
some who dare to say these things
and say them in the face of the fact
of their liability to lose their posi
.tions, their social standing, rnd their
living. It is a strange fact that the
men and women who make war on
the liquor traffic ore more sneered
at than any other class of reformers.
Any attempt at curtailing the power
of the saloon is, met by almost every,
class of people with sneers, and jeers,
and ridicule. The leaders of the
churches laugh at every new move to
lessen the traffic of the saloon;
legislators look on it with contempt,
and Christian voters do not pay it so
much as the cold respect of a passing
glance. Let any state adopt a re
solution prohibiting the sale of in
toxicants within its borders, and at
once it becomes a butt of ridicule.
The federal government laughs at it
and the people hold it up to scorn.
Domestic tranquility is promised by
the constitution, but the enemy of
domestic tranquility and therefore
unconstitutional. If the Christian
had a political status, he could be
come powerful; but he has no political
Btatus. He goes with every party.
and is a member of all parties, and
assists in their nefarious practices of
all of them. In tbe face of every
drunkard the political parties cf to
day see their indictment of murder.
It is the duty of the Christian ele
ment of the parties to cut loose from
them and as Christians fight the traf
fic along the lines mapped out by the
Xazfirene. At the door of every
Christian voter who has cast his
ballot for the parties as they now
exist I lay the crime of assisting the
drunkard in his downfall. Let us
.stand together ns Christians and
and fight this thing to the last ditch.
The sooner it is put on this basis the
better it will be for the kingdom of
God and the alleged members of it.
'Come oat from among them, and be
ye separate, saith the Lord, and
touch not the unclean thing.' "
Paying Back his Tormenter.
A visitor to the circus one day
teased one of the elephants by offer
ing it a bun, and, just as the animal
was going to take it, put it back out
of his reach. This he did several
times, and at last the elephant natur
ally began to feel rather angry, and
finally he refused even to look at the
bun or to attempt to take it Later
in the afternoon the elephant was
being marched around the show
ground, when in the crewd he spied
his tormentor. He reached out his
trunk and calmly appropriated the
man's hat. He held it in his trunk
for some time, and offered it to its
owner. But as soon as he attempted
to take it he pulled it back in the
same way as the man had done with
the bun. This he did two or three
times; but, after holding it out the
last time, he drew it back and swal
lowed it, much to the man's disgust.

A wealthy old citizsn of Bath, Me.,
asked the town council to place a
street lamp near his residence. His
request was not only refused, he was
snubbed; and he went home, took out
of its resting place his will, and add
ed thereto a brief codical, which re
voked a bequest to the town of Bath
of $75,000, to build a new town hall,
and he gave his jreason for revoking
the gift: "Because the town author
ities offensively refused my reason
able request to have my street light
ed." The old man has just died and
the people have found out, by the
publication of his will, how much an
ill mannered town council cost them.
An editor prints his paper to give his

A little boy was told by his father
on the departure of the latter for a
lengthened absence to take care of
mamma. "I leave mamma," said the
confident parent "in your charge."
That night when tbe young hopeful
knelt, as was his custom, by his
mother's knee he prayed. "Please,
Lord, bless grandmamma and take
care of her; bless father and take
care of him, but you needn't trouble
about mother, because I am going to
take care of her."
