Boycott is a man (we believe he is yet

mortality thrust upon him.
It was only a few yaars ago that Boycott
was an obscure renter of an Irish farm.
His fellow-reaters united to resist the ex
actions of their landlords. Boycott re
fused to join them ia their resistance, but
went on farming and paying his agreed
rent as nsual. But when harvest came,
the nnion of resisting renters set a watch

Boycott's name flying round the world.
The movement was taken up in other
places, and, as there was no apt word in
the language for it, and as Boycott seemed
somehow to sound like it, it called itsell
boycotting. Like the boy's whistling, it
whistled itself. To treat a man as Boycott's
neighbors treated him was to boy
cott him. So Boycott was boomed into the
language in spite of himself, and he will
live as a verb long after he is dead as a
There has been a great deal of boy
cotting since Boycott was boycotted. It
has become a very common proceeding.
At first it looked a little like interference
with a man's private rights; but. as our
entire system of civilization is an interfe
rence with private rights a rivalry of pri
vate rights with private rights it has
come at last to be acquiesced in as allow
able tactics in the grand struggle for ex
istence. That is, it is allowable, if it is conducted
without violence or duress. If a man
does not do business to suit your ideas o!
yoar own rights or of his relations to you,
it is your privilege to sander the relations
and, through individual or co-operative
action, to retaliate by a withdrawal ol
custom from him. You may refuse to
work for him, and persuade others to re
fuse. You may withhold your patronage
from his business, and persuade ethers to.
withhold theirs. This is legitimate strategy
in the grand battle of selfishness against
self-preservation which is fashionably
But, when boycotting goes the length
of forcible coercion, it is war, and must
take the risks and the chances of war.
To compel laborers to leave off work be
cause they accept less wages than you will
do the work for is to introduce the
methods of barbarism (which is physical
warfare) into the institutions of civiliza"
tiou (which is intellectual warfare). It
is a question, then, of civilization or ni
hilism. If yon propose to block the pro
cesses of civilization in a state by violence,
the state must meet you with force or
else abandon itself to anarchy. The
civilized state must preserve itself at all
hazards, just as the man must preserve
himself at nil hazards. Peace within it
self is the life of the state. If you Ping
yourself against the peace of the state,
the state must suppress you Or perish.
Boycotting as an intellectual and peace
ful procedure is an unfortunate, but
it is a legitimate, development of the free
dom of eompetitiou in a free government
It is civilized warfare in the business bat
tles of life, individual or collective, for the
survival of the fittest It is a weapon
that may be used, provided it is not dipped
in assassin's poison. But, when boycot
ting proceeds to threats or force against
person or property; when it coerces by
violence the action of any citizen; when
it avails itself of firearms, or dynamite,
or infernal machinery to accomplish its
purposes, it becomes a brutal outlawry,
and the state must deal with it as Mich, or
else abandon its first supreme duty of
keeping the peace and preserving its own
"Among those who were at the 'drum'
were Miss Rachel Sherman, Mrs. Miles

That is from an intelligent and fashion
able Washington correspondent, and is
quoted simply to show that the English
language is beginning to be considered
proper enough to express the things of ele
Not long ago it would have heen thought
almost shocking to say "Mrs. Miles (born
Sherman)." The polite expression the
only admissible would have been "Mrs.
Miles (nee Sherman)."
Thu 'word tie., (pronounced nag) is
French, an- signifies born. It was intro
duced as a word of compliment for the
father-in-law. It is rather a negative a
nee (nay) on the dignity of the hatband.
If a wife was born with a father's name
that beats her husband's in the world's
esteem, she is pleased to have it published
in the society news that she is Mrs. So
andso, but nee (nay) I She may be Mrs.
Smallpotaters, but she was born Some-
The French word and its fine French
sarcasm probably issued ont of the old
Parisian salon, where a famous woman
might have husbands' names too numerous
to mention her by with certainty at any
given time, but could always be safely
spoken of as nee with her father's name
once nee always nee.
This idea of the word, however, prob
ably never entered into the English lan
guage; and the word itself ought never to
have entered. If a married woman needs
to be identified by her father's name, the
good old vernacular word torn, u above
quoted, shonld be employed.
COLORED SUa ON FOBAKBB.
W. H. Dickson, of this city, has
addressed letters to representative colored
men in the state, putting the question to
them whether Foraker would be their pref
erence for governor. He has received
replies from Rev. James Poindexter,
Walter 8. Thomas, Robert Harlan, C. L.
Maxwell, and W. H. Parham. These re
plies he submits to us for publication.
We have not room in our columns for the
letters in fall, bat we give the substance
of them, as follows :
Bcv. Jaa. Poindexter, Colnwibna.
"My feelings toward Judge Foraker are
good, and my confidence in bis Republican
ism is unshaken. His txnUnation to me of
his conduct as attorney for , in the
school case, was satisfactory when he was
nominated tor govenor two years ago, and
therefore I gave him a vigorous tupjiort; and,
if be be put in nomination by the next Re
publican state convention, I shall as vig
orously support him this year."
"In answer to your question, 'Will tbe
colored people support him V I have
to say there are caues at
work disintegrating the colored vote, rhiet
among which is the fact that, although the
Republican party has been in possession of
all the branches of the general government,
legislative, executive, and judicial, lor twen
ty-five continuous years, it has not been able
to protect the rights of the colored people of
the South or purge the statutes of the north
ern stales of laws making distinctions on
account of color."
Walter 8. Thomas, of Columbna.
"You ask me if 'Hon. J. B. Foraker is
my candidate for governor.' Hy answer is,
its! Yon ask me if 'I ihiok the colored
people will support him en matte.' I would
uahesitatingly answer, No I '
"Judge Foraker is a thorough Republican,
honest in his purposes and possessed of tbe
utmost integrity. He is a young man, and
deserves the support of every Republican in
the state for the manly way in which he
conducted his campaign two years ago. His
defeat was due net to the great defection
among colored waters, but to other causes, of
wbicn I need not nor do I care to, speak.
"Again, I am for Judge Foraker because, if
nomiuated, " be wilt make tie most
brilliant campaign ever witnessed in Ohio,
and will be triumphantly elected, at he Je
tervet to be. His services to the party, to his
country, and to tbe colored people entitle
him to the utmost consideration.
"I say that the colored voters will not sup
port him en matte tor tbe reason that many
opposed him two years ago, and will do so
this yrar, but the defection will not be as
great as It was then, tor the reason that tne
charges preferred against him at that time
could not be refuted in time to stop it. Now
the most ignorant among oar people are
aware that they wereabe in act, and hence
will, in my judgment, support him.
But Mr. Thomas's main reason, as he de
clares, for saying that there will be defection
from Foraker is that the Democratic party,
being in and being possessed of the means ot
persuasion, wilt use them to draw tbe colored
vote. Vet he is confident that this defection
will not be larger than would be the drfec
tions from other candidates for other reason?,
and that Foraker can be triumphantly fleeted
in spite ot it.
Bobort Harlaa, Ci-clnntl,
"I have your letter of inquiry about Judge
roraker. I have known him tor a long time,
and know he is a sound Republican and a
good friend ol our race." And Col. Harlan
says that he has written his views elsewhere
for publication, and relers Mr. Dickson to
C I 31 xwetl, Xonia.
"I dislike to put my opinion as to jour
question npon record, bat
would say that it is manifest that
for some cause, real or fanciful,
there is a considerable portion of the col
ored people with whom I bava conversed that
are opposed to the nomination of Judge For
aker. You will excuse me for declining to
answer your other question.
W. H. Parham, Cincinnati,
"I do not feel able to give an opinion at
this time on tbe advisability of puttiog for
ward Judge roraker as the Republican Stan
dard-bearer in the gubernatorial contest ot
next tall. I have not given the matter any
thought I will drop you a line later.
Market Sqaaret Traflto and Tramcets
Sonio Facta on lteef.
If you would please take the time for it
when you pass through Market Square some
night, when that day-time busy mart is
deserted, stop and contrast its qu"et dreariness
aud utter desolation with the busy market
morning, or tbe regular Saturday traffic-life
that fills the square and livens the scene.
It is something to think of, lor a little time
at least how many people there are, in and
about Springfield, who live by tbe barter,
sale and gain of our Market Square. They
come with tbe first break of the morning
light and go with the closing day, and their
lives seem to be confined to this one coutinuil
strain of small gains-getting. Yet we are iu
tormed that there are many men in prosper
ous business now in this city who got their
first capital from Market Square, that many
farmers who own the rich bottom fields in tbe
neighboring country lands, were en-
ailed by we sales made in this very
Market Square, to lay away
penny here and a penny there to pay lor the
larm, and also to add that other adjoining
farm to the old one.
Farmers either bring, or cell to huxters
who do, everything that can b spared from tl e
farm to sell in market Some days tie Square
will be tilled with loads of hay, nod it really
appears to tbe casual observer, at times, tint
teamsters liave'come in for some kind of pic
nic , as they talk together in knots; the
younger men wrestling or telling jokie,
while the reliable old horses, unhitched from
the wagons, niflle the hay, with their ears,
used only to the quiet of the country, sem
ready set lor all the busy noises of tha city.
Wood also seems to have a special day,
when the long lines ol loaded wagons, nicely
arranged with all tbe nice split slicks con
spicuously on the outside, extend all around
the square, with apparently the same people
about the teams, soinstimes in listless con
versation, or more otten in
some loud argumentation applauded by
outbursts of laughter. Sometimes, however,
the country dog comes id with his master,
nd tbe scene is liveliest when tbe dogs can
be persuaded to fight
, Host talk is quite the leading topic. ;
real Interesting and attractive dtscuscion.
That always brings together the largest
crowds, and tbe most iuexhanstable orators,
and debators . In fact a man that has no real
opinions on borse-fleh has no business on
the market square forum. John Smith's lit
tle bay mare that makes it In 2:30 or can't;
that big sorrel that Is a strong puller or
ain't no puller at all; that little roan that
works well in the leai' or don't; or the best
horse in Clark county under the saddle, will
furnish more real unending talk in a certain
crowd on market square, than a new bonnet
in a woman's convention.
Speaking of horses reminds na that we saw
a horse sold hare under the hammer for $2.50
He was fourteen hands high and warranted
to work as well as he conld anywhere. We
were told that some time since a horse was
put up and sold for seventy cents. The auc
tioneers fee was a dollar, and, as be pocketed
the seventy-fire cents, he remarked to the
owner ot the horse that he would not trouble
him for the other twenty-five cents.
From horses to hone-radish the change is
comparatively easy, and yon would be Bur
prised to see what competition there is in this
one commodity. We did not count the num
ber of venders with their machines by which
the radish is reduced to pulp ready for the
table, who deal in nothing else on tbe market,
bat there are many of them.
One gentleman in the business says
that he appeared in this market a few years
ago with the first horseradish grinder, but
now, he says, he has several imitators; but
still the demand is good. At the earliest
hour in the morning, even belore daylight,
the wagons and stands begin to appear in
their places, and the busy hum of the traffic
begins. The idea prevails among market
men that the early bird secures the extra
nickle, so to speak. And the wakeful citi
zen, also, who depends upon the market,
bestirs himself, that he may be first to get
the choice. And when you see bow the
chickens are squeezed and thumped by every
would-be purchaser; bow many hands, and
they not of the cleanest, they pass through
in tbis way, it is no wonder that the wise
citizen is earlv on the ground with his
The market is not altogether devoid of
music, While tbe cold weatker affects tbis
feature ot the place, the blind fiddler,
the organ-grinder, and perhaps worse than
all beside, the aecordeon twister, often mingle
their notes with the din of traffic in small
wares. The cries of handkerchiefs ten
cents, apples, matches, envelopes and paper,
blacking, fresh pork, potatoes, tresh beet, etc
blend together in an almost indistinguishable
murmer from merning until night In this
way a very large proportion of Springfield's
population transact what in the aggregate,
would prove, if counted, an enormous traffic
The American people are largely beef eat
ers, aud it is otten said by those who do not
think about it that the butchers make enor
mous profits. So we thought it ot sufficient
importance to ask the butcher himself.
Tbe genial beet dealer laughed at our sug
gestion and replied : "No, you are mistaken ;
we make very little. Take- the hide, the
horns and the tallow, and that makes oar
I pay from five and three quarters to seven
cents per pound. So a 1,000 pound steer at
six and three quarters will cost alive, on an
average, $67 50. Now take the hide, horns
and tail, in such a steer they will weigh
about 100 pounds, aid bring me about $3.50
Eighty pounds of tallow about $4.00. These
two items $12.50. I reckon as the profits
ol a beef that cost me $101.2fi. The head
goes to the pork butcher, who boils it up and
makes sausiges and scrapple and such things
ot it. Together with tbe liver and tongue it
brings $1.50. There are 150 pounds of sir
loins and rib roasts at twenty cents, $30; 150
pounds of rump and round at twelve and
one-bait cents, when well cut, $18.75; 150
pounds of chuck ribs at ten cents, $15; 100
pounds ot plate and briskets at six cents, $6,
and finally the 450 pounds remaining at six
cents per pound, tbe neck, suet and shoulder
clods," $27. Now, then, add that up and
you will have 1,500 pounds for $111.75,
about eight and one-eighth cents a pound.
Then see how much we have made on the
whole carcass; $101.25 from $111.75 leaves
$10.50. There, I am just $2 short of my first
rough calculation. That can be made up by
skillful cutting, Some ot my men can cut
up a carcass to even more than that advan
tage over the men working beside them.
Tbey don't leave any waste, yon see An
artistic butcher can cut $2 worth more of
sirloin steaks from a steer than a greener
one. I am very careful to have e perienced
men about me."
Fanny Thlnn by Exorea.
No, of course not said tbe old express
agent, I know that the circus animals are not
sent around to the different points of exhibi
tion by express, as they used to be when I
was a young man in the express office here
in Springfield. Why, in the good old times
when a great moral menagerie and circus
would come in on the I'd-Better-Walk, it
took huslin' to get them all trucked into the
office in good shape. I alus took pride in
fixing them comfortable here in tbe office,
and, to tell the truth, I became attached to
the cordial old rhinoceros, the difnified but
joky giraffe, and the only Africanus Elephan
tus now in captivity (that was bis catalogue
name). In fact, all the membeis of the Ag
gregation and me got to be very neighborly,
indeed. Onct, when they bad all been sent
back to the office after the show, to be for
warded to the next show town, which was
New Carlisle why, I can see the scene as it
was enacted then, in my mind's eye,
as plainly as I can your new Bign down
there at the Globe-Rii-celic office. The
elephantus was standing by the store warm
ing bis coat-tails, because the cool nights of
fall had set in rather early, when his old
friend the giraffe Cf.me in and humped his
way up to the fire alongside of him. You've
been drinking agin Raf, said the elephant
No, I aint answered ihe giraffe, not in this
town. You dont mean to say that that
whisky you got down at South Charleston
i3jist gittin down that shot-tower of a neck
of yours, do you ? Well, if yeu aint got the
bulge on any ten o'clock ordinance in Spring
field, I dont want a cent. Say, you've got a
fortune it you could hire that neck of ycur'n
out to the boys, when you didn't want it
particularly fur yourself.
But I dont want to be no Vanderbilt, an
swered Ihe festive Raf, and I'll keep this en
don ment of heaven for my own sweet self.
Eh, old Phanty? And he sag himself to
sleep with Sweet Violets , which dispersed
The elephant said to liissell as he went
away, I'll be hanged is I aint hungry, and
old Raffy makes me crabit about it.
But none of my biographies we.-e sold
at the show, because times are bard and
hardly anybody in Springfield will be able to
clear more than $50,000 this year, by work
ing like a nigger six whole hours every day.
So nothing was done in the literary bureau
of this Aggregation today, and I am hungry,
without a nickle to buy a lunch with.

been sent immediately out to Bowlusville lor a
show at early candle lighting that very night,
for the benefit of the Sunday school and the
proprietor, half and half. It was a beautiful
panorama of Adam and Ere in the Garden,
and various views of the holy land. The
elephant, in a fit of desperation, indiscreetly
swallowed the whole garden, and took the
various other scenes in the holy land for
That night Mrs. Elephant was called to his
dying bedside, where he was rollin' in his
agony. Oh, myl she says, does the pain
shoot right through your stomach T Ain't it

it's good for it, I know let me rub your
feet here's some nice catnip tike some of

she got through talking, he was well enough
to say, sarcastically, that he didn't want any
thing,,unleaf she had some ot the baby loz

find a peppermint drop, somewhere? No,
madam, he went on to say. I don't want
nothing. Do you suppose a fellow that's
chuck-full of Adam-and-Ere-in-the-Garden,
and other historical landicrpe and scientific
knowledge, better and cheaper than a travel-round-the-globe,
cares for anything more? I
tell you, madam, a fellow that has succeeded
in grappling to his library such a choice se

After which, he died; and the widow said,

A rural detective writes a county official
here a letter, in which he claims to have be
come possessed of evidence that a gang of
counterfeiters is operating in the western
part ef this county, and offers his services to
break it up, and capture the "queer" charac
ters. His proposition is that the matter be
brought to the atte ntion ot the county com
missioners at once, and that they offer a reas
onable rewarl, besides advancing mocey
enough to permit the detective to begin oper
ations. The thing is so indefinite and tbe
writer of the letter so entirely unknown to
the commissioners, that it is likely they will
seek a personal interview with the rural
Vidocq before making a very extensive ap
propriation of public funds.

This heathen temple, or calm, an it fa

well see why It Is called a calm, though pos

each have brought his contribution of
treasure toward its completion; but tha
structure is too artistically conceived to as

of a cairn. That it had a sacred character

The Condora in this northern world is
built of blocks of clear ice. It is circular in
form and of a pyramidal character. It fat
constructed in seven stories or terraces,

the flags of various nations. At the inaug

points, on every available block of tee, each

principally of closely-paoked and frozen
mow. Uhls material, twin; more plastic
and opaque, seems better suited to the com
pletion of such a design than Ice, the hard
and chilly luster of the latter being at vari
ance, I think, with tha successful represen

eharicterlxed by the potent force and tame

The carnival lion of Place d'Armes Is very
unlike the usual monumental type of his

-Garth's Letter In Tbe Argonaut
From 15 to 20 tne southern girl Is a joy to
the beholder. A creamy complexion, with
sometimes, but not often, a faint flash of
pink underneath, soft eyes with a world of
dreams in them, a rounded figure, tiny
hands and feet and kittenish ways, make it
no marvel that the youth masculine of New
Orleans is mostly married at 22 or 23. A
girl of 20 who has not received half a dozen
offers, at least Is socially a failure. Matri
mony Is the grand, authorized aim, as pub
licly recognized as the Louisiana lottery.
Girls are educated to marry, and to detest
the circumstances that compel them to earn
their living in any hs womanly way.
"I married,'' said a little lady to
me the other day, discussing the
somewhat unfortunate position of famfiy at
fairs. Tbe inference was plain. But there
ere girls, brave girls, whose pretty faces
may be seen behind the counters of almost
every large store in New Orleans, who,
while hating conform'ty with shoppy condi
tions, have put their dellcata snouiaersto
the wheel of family adversity, and sweetly
contributed their mites to the general in
come. Ot the professional ambition that
fires their northern sisters thsy know noth
ing. They are Innately and entirely do
mestic, lovable and lovmg, asking only to ba
shielded from the facts of life, and permis
sion to unlimitedly pirouette.
A youug lady may receive alone, and gen
erally does; may drive with a gentleman,
but may not accept his escort so the theatre,
concert or ball, without a chaperon; Sunday
evening Is devoted to reception all over the
city; church in tho morning is the usual
limit to devotion; fire-crackers and brass
bands enliven the day, and anything canbn
purchased, from carpets to caramels. Tha
girls sit in their pretty summer dresses npon
the wide steps of the pillared veranda, their
various admirers poking with admirable
effect in their Immediate vicinity. It Is all
very picti.rrtque, very layiuc. mere is
much rhythmic laughter and distracting
coquetry, many graceful compliments and
Imperial edicts. To make hay while the sun
shines, Is a rule of conduct no less practical
than valuable to these charming demoi
selles, for their beauty is the beauty of the
queenly magnolia a touch of frost a bruise
of fortune, and it la one, withersd, faded,
yellowed, a suggestion ot the pa-t
The southern man, to all appearance, is a
most chivalric Individual. His stature Is
not usually in proportion to tha height of
his aspirations or the breadth of his percep
tions; but what there is of him tingles with
appreciation of feminine loveliness, and de
votion to feminine reauiremenfes. His coun
tenance is sallow bat fails to advertise tho
awful ravages rf American dyspepsia that
walk abroad in so many of Chicago's hurry
ing faces. His cigars are excellent and his
manners unimpeachable. Business men will
ask yon to pay three prices for their goods
with a serenity unrippled, and a bland per
suasion that is irresistible; bat If misfortune
makes you her creditor, they will rarely
push their claims.
Southern home life b essentially home
like. The alien finds himself in a sympa
thetic atmosphere, in which all his budding
genial impulses break into astonishing bloom,
and amaze him at the tropical result Tha
demonstratlveness ot family connections fat
a little startling at first; bat one soon recog
nizes that tha quality is indigenous aa tha
chameleon. By tha way, I made my first
acquaintance in that large and Interesting
family the other day. He was sitting with
green composure npon a vine outside my
window; but when he saw me ha took up a
brown position upon a branch. Whan I
made a futile endeavor to poke him with my
parasol, he looked at me with a satirical
expression and smiled he did! but declined
to change his expression again. I
should have been surprised to sea
him frown, however, Lonlslanians are so
agreeable. The colored hand-maidens that
abound in your temporary home have re
duced service to a suave, soft-footed, self
respectful science. Like the 'quaint strains
of half forgotten music fall the familiar
phrases of Uncle Tom's numerous relatives.
A good many the phrases, not the relatives
have been adopted and pass current with

New York Cor. Chicago Journal.
There Is a woman who teaches a class of
boys in the Sunday-school of tha Rev. Dr.

church, and it may be that tha frequency of
crime in financially trusted persons lad her
to think that some new and forcible lesson
aa to punishment was needed. She Invited .
tha pupils to go at her expense to tie elab
orate wax-work exhibition which has bean
opened. Under the main hall, fax rscassse
formed by heavy pillars and vaulted ceiling
where the aspect is all sobterranean and
prfaonisb, are representations of the capital
punishment as inflicted In different coun
tries. The figures are marvelously lit e-like, tha
accessories are perfect, tha light theatrically
effective, and tha whole quite horrible. Tha
Japanese beadsman has just dona his bloody
work, the Russian torturers are at a writh

has been performed, a French guillotine b in
operation, and ah American mob b hanging;

scaffolds, and, my word for it, these imita
tion punishments lack nothing in realism.

her class, and felt that she had done them
