A LOSS TO ALL,
During the first six months' operation of the
Democratic Free-Trade law prices of many com
modities, especially farm products, have fallen,, but
not to the consumer, who pays as much as ever.
There is no gain to anybody in the United States,
but a distinct loss to many, with indications of a
loss of greater or less extent to all.
THE BOOTLEGGER GOING.
Looks like the festive bootlegger has about given
Pulton the salute and departed. Wo hope this is
true. "Whisky selling under the saloon regime be
camo disgusting enough to turn all decent people
against it, but bootlegging is unspeakably degrad
ing. It is so much that even the negroes are
quitting it. There is no place for bootlegging in a
respectble community. If you must have whisky
buy it like a man legally, and take it home like you
would your groceries. But why drink at all? You
are much better tlf without it. Fulton Leader.
JPRINGTIME ON THE OHIO.
f .In spite of war auU rumors of 'war, in spite of
raucous voices cryingllaming almost-cxtras, -life
emerged irom us" paltry details yesterday, awake
to the fact that it was spring, and living along the
valley of thcCentral Ohio was hand-painted, beau
teous, buddfng and serene. Qod's out-of-doors was
upo us and around us, and we were in it, drink
ing new vigor, drawing new hope, dreaming a new
peace. The petty cares of everyday fell away like
chaff before the breeze and disappeared like bub
bles that burst and are no more.
It is a long journey between childhood and old
age; a long pull and a hard one, and the hand
painted days arc the oases in the desert. It is
enough, on these days, to stand erect in the sun
shine and look up into the sky and breathe the
balmy air laden with the scent of woodland, and
feel the thrill of new life in one's veins. It is good
on days like this simply to have lived. Considera
tions of success or failure in material affairs are
forgotten ; if one have debts they fade away, if one
have troubles they no longer exist. Just to stand
upon the crest and raise one's eyes and live and
(breathe and bo at one with nature is enough. It is
kjood, then, just to have lived.
(There was a day ages ago when man lived in
ho open and by right of might sustained his brood.
?p.vr were his real troubles, and these soon ended;
fie qff the small, trilling, continuing everday
ibles of the present man, but great vital issues
bo in Which he either lived or died, and in cither
ended them. His being was rooted in the life
titure about him, and his good strong- arms and
s were cousins of the cedars.
j the long ages since, civilization has bred an
(fleet in man, but warped and shrunken his phy-
1 body and made him the prey of grisly phan-
3 conjured by the artificialities of his new life,
increased the number of his wants. -He has set
upon an endless chase ior induced and stimu-
..Ju needs, and if he does, not overtake them all
ik unhappy. ""
'l stand for a time and throw aside the
' our workaday life, and be at one with
mt a reversion to the primitive life into
iv a was born.
(Nowhfcre else, neither in Italy nor along the
,aino nor in Sunny Spain, nor even, in our own
.emi-tropic California, does this spirit so kindly
iro'o'd as in the Ohio valley, where the zones merge,
Avhero climatic transition is in its glory and its
tmajesty, and where universal nature touches the
heart of universal man. IIuntington-Herald Dis

JUSTICE MAYO ON THE
INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN.
"Children have a great influence over the entire
family, and in many instances are able to bring
about reforms that all other agencies might fail
of obtaining, "says Justice John B. Mayo the most
fatherly of all the Children's Court jurists, in the
May 'Strand. "This may st'em a bit exaggerated,
but every man and woman who has worked for
any time in this Court pins his or her faith to the
child. They look to tho inspiration of the child for
the betterment of the home.
"I know that it seems anomalous that the little
ones who should be protected and kept from harm
by the parents are really in a reverse position, and
that it is the boy or girl in the majority of cases
that, in reality, is taking an interest in tho uplift of
the parents and who are extending a sort of moral
supervision over their manner of living.
"In the congested parts of the city there are
thousands of homes which are pitiful places in
themselves. Add to this a drunken or lazy father
and mother, or parents of lax morals; then what
can reasonably be expected of the ill-nourished,
poorly-cared-for offsprings? In such cases tho pa
rents are dragging the children to ruin. From
such families the majority of tho children of this
Court are brought. There are many charges under
which they come: truancy, incorrigibility, dis
honesty, wickedness and improper guardianship.
1 believe, thoroughly, that many of these charges
would not be brought against the little ones if the
guardianship were proper. The fact of Jhe matter
is that improper guardianship is largely Ho blame
for a majority of the cases that come before the
"Much of the trouble develops with" home en
vironment. Thc parents become angered with their
children. It does not occur to them that at the
bottom the blame rests on them. They have brought
them into thc world and then failed of their duty,.
That they should be punished with the child, if
punishment is necessary, does not enter their heads.
They have not been educated to look at the ques
tion from that point of view.
"It is thc child who, unconsciously, leads them to
see the situation in its true light. 'When the child
comes to ''this court, then begins his or her part in
the reformation of the family. And it is truly mar
velous to observe the vast improvement in the
father and mother of a child on probation." .
