We have received the long-loolted-for
issue of the Parkersburg Journal In
dustrial Edition. The issue contains
sixty pages, and it would seem to be a
Tory complete illustrated resume of the
city's varied attractions and interests.
The work of compiling and printing
such a mammoth newspaper can
scarcely be appreciated by a layman,
and the way in which the Journal has
come out as shown by the beautiful
mechanical results, speaks highly for
the taste and capacity of the office.
The illustrations are very numerous
there being over three hundred of
them, and thev are uniformly good.
All in all, the editors and printers
and all who were concerned in petting
out the work, have great cause for
feeling proud of the beautiful issue, of
which there were printed above eleven
Tbelr Last Argument.
Pour-fifths of the pleas for a SO-cent
dollar have been mude up of denuncia
tions of the robber Rothschilds, who
ivere alleged to be fastening their gold
bug system on the world. The belief
that the eminent banking firm had
bought up the American congress and
thus brought about the crime of 1873
Is one of the articles of faith among
nil good populists.
Now comes the sad news from a sil
rer standpoint that the wealth absorb
ing octopus has gone into the business
rffiilver mining. United States Consular
Agent KeighUy, of Xewcastle, X. S. W.,
reports that the Kothschilds have ac
quired a large interest in one of the
leading silver smelting works in Aus
tralia. These works are to treat the ore
from the famous Broken Hill mines and
will employ about 1.G00 men.
What will the worshipers of the sil
ver pig say now? How can they de
nounce the hated banking house'which
is engaged in producing white metal?
Of what use will it be to appeal to
prejudice againstthe greedy Rothschilds
when ft is known that those gold eat
ers haetaken toasilverdiet? Nomore
can the populist artists find a theme
Jor their weird and wonderful cartoons
in the foreign bankers whose name has
teen used to frighten naughty children.
.Kb longer will the charge that the ad
Tocates of honest money arc the Roths
childs' paid agents serve to fccare fann
ers into voting for the silver standard.
Gone is the last hope of the sixteen to

More Creditors Than Debtors.
The Teacher's Cooperathe Building

are borrowers of funds thatls, debtors
to the others. If this ratio is main
tained in the 0,000 building and loan
associations in this country, having
3,600,000 shareholders, there are about
20,000 debtors to 1,580,000 creditors,
or more than seven creditors to one

undoubtedly help the debtors. It would

And the skies are blue oa tho eyes p" you,
And the blooms blow over the lake.
There's Joy, my dear, for tho world Is fair,
And love Is the sweetest blossom therel
There's Joy, my dear. In the noon o' tho
When the harvest tints o' gold,
And the soft sun streams with Its gleams
On your beautiful hair unrolled.

How oft, dear wife, ere wo were wed,
And as a youth I courted you.
My loving glance admiring sped
To rest upon your dainty shoe.
I worshiped then,that foot that lay
Concealed within its satin shrine,
Not as a piece of 'human clay,
But as something half divine.
Nor Ilalelgh-llke would I have deemed
My cloak a fitting path of thine;
A sacrilege it would have seemed
To touch thy feet with aught of mine.
And though, dear wife, those days are Hed
When first we fed young love's bright
And though we two have long been wed
I venerate thy feet the same.
A sacrllego I deem it still
To touch thy feet, and therefore can
But ask you, darling, that they will
Not uso me as a warming-pan.
