According to Professor Brandor Mat
thews, in an article on "Tlo Penalty
of Humor" in tho May Harper's, noth
ing is paid for with a higher prlco than
a reputation for humor sufficiently
wide to prevent tho owner from being
Yhen tho timo came for tho peoplo
of tho thirteen united colonies to pro
claim to tho world that they wero free,
and that they hold themselves absolved
from all allegiance to tho British erown,
and that all political connection bo
tween them and Great Britian wns to
tally dissolved, a committco of tho
Continental Congress was appointed to
draw up & declaration of independence.
The members of this committed were
Benjamin Franklin, of Pennsylvania,
John Adams, of Massachusetts, Roger
Sherman, of Connecticut, Robert R.
Livingston, of New York, and Thomas
Jefferson, of Virginia. Why was it
that tholr colleagues committed tho
i writing of the Declaration of Indepen
dence to Thomas Jefferson, and not to
Beniamin Franklin? Tho Virginian
was not tho most prominent man even
of his own section, and although his
roputation could not fairly bo termed
local, it was but littlo more, while tho
name of tho Pennsylvaniun was well
known throughout tho whole civilized
world. Franklin was not only the
foremost citizen of Philadelphia, whero
the bongress was sitting, he was tho
most experienced publicist and tho
most accomplished man of letters In all
tho thirteen colonies; and he was es
pecially well equipped for the drawing
up of an appeal to Europe, as ho had
but just returned from London, where
ho had been pleading the cause of his
countrymen with indomitable courage
and indisputable skill. Yet Franklin
was not asked to write the Declaration
of Independence; and although he and
Adams madoa few verbal amendments,
the credit of that great state paper be
longs to Jefferson And why was it
that this responslbilty was placed on
Jefferson, and not on Franklin?
I think tho explanation lies in the
fact that Franklin was a humorist
Not only was Franklin's sturdy common-sense
felt to be too plain a home
spun for wear in the courts of Europe,
when tho thought needed to be attired
in all the lofty rhetoric that tho most
feryid enthusiasm could produce, but
also, I fear me greatly, his colleagues
were afraid that Franklin would have
his joke. It would be a good joke, no
doubt probably a very good joke; but
the very best of jokes would not be in.
keeping with the stately occasion.
They wero acute, those leaders of tho
Continential Congress, and they knew
that every man has tho defects of his
qualities, and that a humorist is likely
to be lacking in reverence, and that
tho writer of the Declaration of Inde
pendence had a. theme which demand
ed tho most reverential treatment
So it was that Benjamin Franklin
had to pay the penalty of humor In the
last century, just as Abraham Lincoln
had to pay it in this century. Because
Lincoln was swift to seize upon an in
congruity, and because he sought re
lief for his abiding molancholy ia play
fulness, theie wero not a few who re
fused to take Lira seriously.
Even after his death thero wero hon
est folk who held tho shrewdest and.
loftiest of our statesmen to have been
little better than a buffoon. Of the
three greatest Americans, Franklin,
Washington, and Lincoln, two were
humorists; and it is perhaps his defici
ency of humor which makes Washing
ton seem more remote from us and less
friendly than either of the others.

The Pittsburgh, Brownsville and
Morgantown Packet Co., will build a
fine sidewheeler this season to take
the place of one of the present boats of
the line. The now steamer will be
equipped with all tho modern conveni
ences, and will be a model in beauty.
The Morgantown line has not built a
boivt for some years, and the new
steamer will bo much finer than any
thing that has been built in recent
years for the Monongahcla River trade.
This packet line is over half a century
old, and Its stockholders are men who
are well known in the business world.
Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gen
erally needed, when the languid ex
hausted feeling prevails, when the
liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt uso of this medicine has
often averted long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely in counteracting and free
ing thoN bystera from the malarial
'poison. Headache, Indigestion, Con
stipation, Dizziness yield to Electric
Bitters. SOc and $1.00 per bottle at
