"The Free Silver epidemic in the West and South
of the United States came previously near to becom
ing a Reign of Terror. In Kentucky we had sorae
tliing very like Civil War. Ignorance sat in the
' saddle and rode down truth. And what a riffraff of
fake leaders and crazy followers did not the fetish
of Free Silver raise up everywhere. Behold the
outcome! With Bryan turned gold-bug, and a gold
bug, President in the "White House,
the country seems safe at least from that form of
lunacy, and the very memory begins to vanish like
' some hideous nightmare. In mad times madmen
vget to the front. But what a vindication the ad
vocates of sound money have received!" Henry

HAVE YOU GOT THE PUNCH?
Mary Heaton Vorse, writing a story in the Jan
uary Woman's Homo Companion, makes one of her
characters describe as follows a tremendously suc
cessful, man who is one of the principal figures in
tho story :
"Look at him now. He isn't a man he's a force
Men like him are this country they make it.
Everything else is subsidiary. Nothiug else counts.
They arc politics. They are powor. They aro It.

WHO PAYS THE FREIGHT?
Several year ago, in answer to a correspondent,
the Republican stated that tho importer paid the
duty that the Tariff was an occupation tax levied
on the peoplo of other countries for the privilege
of the Amarican markets. Several of tho Demo
cratic papers of the State disputed this ,but at that
time there was no way of settling the matter except
theoretically; but now, since tho Underwood bill
is in effect, it can he demonstrated by cold, hard
facts instead of in theory.
Take, for example, cattle now on the free list.
Instead of reducing the cost of living, so far as
meats are concerned, they are actually higher than
they were under a Protective Tariff; and tho cat
tle dealers of Canada and Argentina are reaping
the benefits of being able to enter the American
markets without paying a tax for the privilege,
while the American grazier is taxed at the same old
rate, and in addition, the expenses of the National
Government now greater than every before; that
were formerly met by the revenues derived from
the Tariff, will have to be met by direct taxation,
thus throwing an additional burden on our people,
for the benefit of those in other countries
The incapacity of the Democratic party to man
age tho affairs of the nation was never more clearly
demonstrated than by the passage of the Wilson-
Simmons-Underwood bill. Tazewell (Va.) Repub

THE STAY-AT-HOME HUSBANDS.
In an Ohio city a wife has recently won a divorce
because, among other things, hubby, after a hard
day's work, wouldn't pilot her to the movies or go
out and make calls, but insisted upon donning
smoking jacket and slippers and reading the paper
as he puffed his pipe and toasted his toes.
Note the words "among other things." Of co'urse
it takes more than tiredness or selfishness to legal
ize a divorce in Ohio. But the other things needn't
concern us now. The present point is, was tired
hubby's staying at home selfish?
With all due sympathy for a tired man, we guess
-fie. must have been guilty as charged. Don't you
suppose wife was home all day, as busy at her work
as hubby ever was with his t M oreover, her day be
gan ere his did and no whistle ended it at night.
With her it was work and drudge day aftor day
with rarely a bit of variety to break the sameness.
Do you wonder, then, that sometimes, in the
evening, she wanted a little amusement, wanted to
step beyond her own door?
Of course, it's bad never to stay at home nights;
but there's danger, also, at the other extreme Stay-at-home
husbands, husbands who never take their
wives calling, become stupid, crusty chaps, don't
they! For their own good they ought to get out
now and then and mix with their neighbors.

GUARDING THE GIRL
Protective Rules Issued By English So
clety For Young Womon.
"Fifty thousand girls drop out of
sight every year," a famous newspaper
announces in hugo type. A moro stu
dent would ask what porcentago this is
of all girls between, say, 15 and 20
years, and whother such loss is pos
sible Tho article apparently is based
on tho fact thnt (300 girls disappeared in
12 months botweon Now York nnd Chi
cago. This is bad nough surely. Tho
rotnedy recommended is to copy aftor
tho English association which publishes
protective rules beginning as follows:
1. Girls should nover speak to strang
ers, cither men or women, in tho Btreot,
in shops, in stations, in trains, in lono
ly country roads, or in places of amuso
mont. 2. Girls should nover nsk tho way of
any but officials on duty, such as polico
men, railway officials or postmen.
3. Girls should never loiter or stand
about alono in tho street, and if accost
ed by a stranger (whother man or wom
an) should walk as quickly as possible
to tho nearest policeman,
4. Girls should nevor stay to help a
woman who apparently faints at tholr
foot in tho street, but should Immodl.
ately call a policeman to her aid. '
Possibly theso restrictions aro color
od by tho moral overstrain apt to char
acterize a reformer's real, but it Is
fair to ask whother a land in which
they me nocessary is elthor civilized or
Christian. Nothing Bernard Shaw says
of English hypocrisy and spnsunlity is
half so striking as this proposal to put
everybody in social quarantine If tho
facts sustain such contentions, tho soon
er wo hnvo an ironclad etiquette the
better. But what n ghastly commen
tary on our "progress," how our citios
sink tholr prido and becomo mem traps
