A PERMANENT EXPOSITION, TO BE
BELIEVER OK AGNOSTIC ?
Las Senator Ingalls any fixed
opmionsl' Day by nay evaience is ac?
cumulating that the eloquent Senator!
from Kansas does not know his own
mitd. When he was accused recently
of stealing the ideas of Massillon, be
excused himself by saying that for
thirty years he had been "Btruck by
the.r sombre and stately eloquence,"
and that they seemed to him "the
mo-1 forcible and impressive presenta?
tion of the strougest argument in sup?
port of the immortality of the human
sou'.." It was in lSS'j that Mr. Iogalls
presented somebody else's argument in
favor of the immortality of the sou! as
his own. The argument had been im?
pressing him for thirty years. Yet we
find him posing as an agnostic iu 1?3^.
Tht occasion was the death of Sena?
tor Hill, whose eulogy Mr. Lngalls
de'ivered. In this oration Mr. Ix
galls said that Senator Hill had
gone to an undiscovered country,
about which nobody know any?
thing. The question of immortality,
thtn was to Mr. Ingalls? we take his
own word for this?aa unsolved and in?
soluble problem; life appeared to him
to be a circle whose fatal circumference
no nan could pass. Mk Ingaxls as
usual couveyed what he thought were
his views in poetic sentences; 6evera!
of which, we remember, were quoted at
the time as epigrams. But when, Mk.
LNGALLS professed agnosticism over
the grave of Senator Hill we know
now from his owu mouth he was hug?
ging to his heart the extremely illogical
but high-sounding argument of Massil?
lon ior immortality. How docs the
Senator explain this?
Perhaps Mr. Ingalls holds views
diametrically opposite to each oilier.
In the light ot some such supposition
a3 this Mr. Ingalls' coutlicting utter?
ances may be understood. Au agnos?
tic iu 1SS3, and a believer in immor?
tal .tv in 1SS9, what is he now? Mr.
INGALLS-Facing-Both-Ways will con?
fer a favor on his admirers by explain?
ing a little.
ANEW NEW ENGLAND.
-At the banquet given in Roanoke
Thursday night to the Massachusetts
editors, Mr. E. Of. Brown, of Bunker
Hill, spoke of the furnaces that had
gone out in his State, the reason
being, said he. "that they had been
light -d in Southwest Virginia." That
is about the truth of the matter, in a
nutshell.?Norfolk Public Ledger.
It is one of the inexorable laws of
progress in this age thai, ihc manufac?
turers are obliged to he close to their
Mr. Brown is not only the editor of
one of the most iniluential newspapers
In the State, but he is a capitalist, ami
he sees the way the wind is blowing.
For years New E?glaud has been the
manufacturing centre of the country, its
mills and factories are famous the
world over for their products, but they
are now on the wane.
Competition is the cause. The
South has always been a producer of
raw materials, and it now proposes
cot only to produce but to utilize
them. This will bring wealth aud
prosperity to the country. No sec?
tion cau compete with it1 now
that there is both capital aud ma?
The New Euglauders are too shrewd
not to see this^and two frank not to
admit it. They see that the South is
the coming section and as au earnest
of this belief they are putting their
money iu it.
AEOCT WHISKY DRINKING.
The contest in Iowa ia behalf of
prohibition bids fair to encourage that
worst of all vices?homo drinking.
The saloon keepers 'declare that they
will stand squarely upon their professed
right to sell liquor in the original pack?
ages aud will fight the matter to the
court of last resort. Just what an
original package is has not yet been
determined, and there will probably be
any amount of litigation before a deter?
mination is reached.
GENIUS OF THE "CELT.
How Shrewd Natives Work the American
Travelers iu Ireland.
Irish -wit loses much of its keenness
by repetition. Thorough1}- to appreci?
ate it one must listen to Pat as on his
native soil ho flushes forth those rapier
like expressions which convulse his
listeners. The? larger part of Celtic
wit is epigrammatic. It springs sud?
denly from its environments. In Ire
laud it is distilled from almost every
situation. As soon as the American
lands in Ireland he begins to hear it.
The traveler first comes in contact
with the professional beggar at Queens
town. From an economic standpoint
theso beggars are the pests of the
Green Isle. They give travelers alto?
gether a wrong impression in regard
to the true nature of the Irishman as
he is in his native land. Still the
American cannot help being pleased
with them on account of their witty
sayings. A recent traveler in Ireland
was accosted by one of these profes?
sionals. In all essentia. respects the
beggar closely resembled the Witch of
Endor. She was lean aud evidently
hungry. She stood in an attitude ex?
pressive of extreme humility, with
her hands clasped before her. She said
nothing, but her attitude -was a very
seeching one. Thinking from her
looks that she was deserving of char
ay, the traveler said to her:
"Now, madam, if I give you a sail?
ing will you promise not to follow
ne around the streets during my stay
"Arrah, sir. may the blessiu1 of
leaven come down upon ye, sir; may
ye niver know want, and may yo'es
rife niver attind ye'er funeraL"
She received the shilling in her
rrinkled palm, and as long as the
traveler was within hearing she called
lown blessings upon him. He re?
named in Queenstown one week.
)uring that time wherever he went ho
aw thcvmiserable spectacle of the
>oor bf ' woman. Her looks al?
ways f whiskey,"lms. This went on
uxtil it'u'&we FS arable to the trav
ler. One morning as he came out of
is hotel he saw her standing on the
pposite side of the street in the usual
itiful attitude. To put it mildly, he
as vexed. He decided to put an end
3 the nuisance. Crossing the street
apidly to where the woman stood, he
"Madam, didn't you agree not to
ollow me after I gave you the shil
"Faith, I did, sir."
"Well, way in thunder do you fol
yx me soi"
The woman smiled and replied:
'-'Shore, sir, it's not me that's foller
1' ye; it's ye that's follerin' me."
The traveler gave her a sixpence.
There is another nuisance in most of
le large Irish towns. It is in the
tape of the small boy. After leaving
ueeustown the traveler spoken of
bove met one of these pocket edition
alts at the Cork station. Said the
3v. who was no more than twice as
.rge as the traveler's valise:
"Wu'd ye lave me carry the bag?'1
The traveler doubted the boy's
rength, yet he yielded the valise to
is eager grasp. The bag was heavy
id the boy gradually became bow
gged in his efforts to carry it On
?riving at the hotel the traveler gave
ie boy sixpence and dismissed him.
9 came out upon tha sidewalk an
>ur later and found the boy waiting,
id the traveler:
? Sonny, I don't need you any long
? But ye'll nade a guide, sir."
''No; I can see the city without
\\ ith this the traveler started to go
ray, but the boy clung to his coat
ils. He stuck closer than a burdock
irr. The sightseer couldn't shake
m off until he used actual violence.
? rebuff tlid not discourage the boy,
wever, for he followed for two
?urs until he arrived at Patrick's
idge. Here, as the tourist stood
itching the myriad gulls in graceful
ght over the River Lee, he felt a
arp tug at his coat, and, turning
rand, saw the boy agai-a.
"Well, my boy, what is it now*"
"It's gettin' late," replied the boy,
nd wud ye pay me now so I can go
