kind occurred at Xashville, Tennessee. last

a good and well meaning man, had the bad
taste to speak, in the presence of Miss

of unblemished repute, of the brazen faces
confronting ever) one as they walked along
the street; said they were an impure, im

every word was full of double meaning and
a portnnal of vice. He spoke of the pra)er
offered upon the stage as blasphemous and
concluded b) remarking that the on!) way
to purify the stage was to bum down the
theaters. Direi t allusion was made to the

Capital must lie conscientious and con
tiliator), and labor uinst put itself in the
same, attitude. 'I he golden rule must have
broad and liberal onstnn Hon ai.d applica

arbitrary or oppressive, but both fair and

both parties must be given an Intelligent
appreciation of the circumstances and facts
Capital must put Itsilf in the place ot
labrr, and lalior must put itself in tht place
of capital. Each must uudi-rstand and ap
pro late each otlier.
Let it be understood that labor must re
spect itself: that it is just as resjectab!e
ami honorable for a man to work fora man
ufacturer and draw Ins pa) as it is for the
manufacturer to sell his machines for
none) and collect it. A workingruan.who
renders ethcient service, in a manly, honest
wa), has as good reason to hold up his head
and walk erect, as the wealthiest capitalist
in :spring!ield or any other city, and the
capitalist who puts on airs and refuses or
neglfits to recognize an honest and decent
workingunn as his equal, has very much
to learn in the elemental) principles ot
good sense. Capital is no more Independ
ent of labor than labor is of capital, and
the business of a town is dependent on
both. Capital cat n it strike a blow at la
boreven If justifiable without hitting
trade and all classes of citizens. The re
verse is also tnie. And not the least of the
unpleasant and hurtful results of labor
troubles is that the coiiimuuit) become
rent into factions of citizens, whose mem
bers becoms excited and hostile partisans
of oi.e side or the other in the conflict
Such a condition of things Is a sei ions ob
stacle to the prosperit) of any town.
It is a cheerful sign of the times that
capital and labor are coming to a better
understanding and into more friendly rela
tions. L st )ear there seemed to be strikes
almost ever) where. This) ear strikes are
verv infrequent, having been avoided bv
means of negotiation, which remedy for
labor troubles Is vindicating itself dail) in
various parts of the country. Thero Is now
a prospect of the peaceful settlement ol
all labor troubles.
Co-oneratlonand profit-sharing are feat-
urea which, w lien practicable, most favor

TTlulonst rated in this countr) that co-optra-
tion can be made successful and profitable,
but there is one kind of co-operation (and
the best kind) that is alwajs practical,
namel) , that kind in which the em plov er and
his men cheerfull) and heartil) co-operate
in behalf of mutual and common interests,
the employer looking after and seeking to
promote the Interests of the men,
and treating them as one gentle

To the Editor of the Republic
It was not until the evening of Octobtr
Tth, just as I was about leaving) our Cham
pion City, where the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union had been so ro)aII) en
tertained, that my attention was called to
ysur paper of October "th, and to the fact
that in it )ou had Kiven me a text for a ser
mon. Perhaps, even at this late da). )0U
will pt runt me to preach a little from this
You quote from General Grecle), con
cerning the use of alcohol in the higher
latitudes, as follows:
"Giv en in small quantities after the da) s
work was over, the) distinctly stimulatid
the mental faculties without an) unpleas
ant effects. This small quantitv was ger
erally about two ounces. More than this
seemed merel) a waste, hi the later his
tory of thn expedition it was recorded that
ene-fourth of an ounce of pure alcohol, d -luted
with three times its weight of water,
had an equally pronounced etf.ct It
seemed to supply a food and to havo a de
cided alimenlar) value."
I have not seen the article in the J-'unim.
from wbicb this extract is taken, but I will
not question the accuracy of our quotation.
I have no books at hand from which to cull
the contrary testimony of otlier arctic ex
plorers. I hav e, howev er. the v erbal testi
mony of a sailor who, from an experience
of months in the polar regions, savs decid

caution against suffering from cold. lie

and it became an acknowledged fact among
the sailors from similar experiments upon
Hut let us lay aside con II ctlng statements
and take )our quotation on its own merits
"Giv en in small quantities after the da)'s
work was over, the) II suppose that means
alcoholic liquors) distinctly stimulated the
mental faculties, etc"
We notice that the "small quantity" was
given after the day's work was over, not to
enable them to do the work nor to fortify
against cold. When the dav's work is over
a man needs rest, not stimulation mental
or physical. We are not told the character
of this mental stimulation Without it no
doubt the wear) brain would have b-en re
paired b) a natural sleep. With it the
man was lively, easil) amused, voluble, ex
hilerated Many an author has written pages under
the stimulus of wine, which at the time he
wrote, hvt considered full of p twer, but
which surveyed by the cool criticism of a
brain in its normal condition, he pronounced
pu-rile and unworth) of himself.
Prof. JlcSherry sa)s: "It may be doubted
whether such a condition as true stimula-
tion by alcohol exists Th early phe-17
nomena. ir rarffuilu rrfwerm, are better
explained as the b-ginning of intoxication."
raktzg this view of the matter may we
not doubt tint the distinct mental stimula

nciair w stum it not nave been wiser to bu

May we not be justified in
thinking that the final powers of
endurance in the last terrible strain put
uiion them nail been weakened by the txa-
tion made upon the system by alcoholic
liquors given "after the day's work was
over. It Is true Hie statement is made
that this stimulation was "without an) un
pleasant effects," but how is this to be as
certained? Unfortunately violation of phys
ical law is not always followed Immediately
b) the penalty. Many a sleepless, suffer
ing dyspeptic has learned this in mature
life, and acknowledges that his reckless
disregard of physical laws in youth when
he .nor that it old not hurt him has
brought upon him years of suffering that a
wiser youth would have spared him.
The "small quantity" given, as stated in
our text, was about two ounces that is.
about two table spoonfuls, but whether
given in a pint or more of beer, in a
-tronger and therefore smaller amount of
wine or brandy, or as pure alcohol diluted
with water, we are not fold. Xor does it
matter. The character of the diluent does
not change the character of the alcohol.
Later it was discovered that one fourth
of au ounce about two teaspoonsful had
an equal!) pronounced effect Does that
mean that the mam was stimulated ment
ally by the one fourth ounce, as much as he
had been previous!) by the two ounces,
and are we to Infer that he would not have
been so affected In the early expenences of
the voyager.? It if difficult to draw conclu
sions from so loose a staement
If one-fourth of an ounce does the work
of two ounces why use two ounces? It is
stated that more than tvv o ounces tc cmal
merely waste. How was that measurement?
Science demands accuracy, not seeming
Science lias demonstrated that in this mat
ter of the use of alcohol, sseming or fesl
ing is entirely unreliable. Under alcohol
a man feels warm, seems to gain heat, but
the use of the fever thermometer demon
strates that his temperature is actually re
duced. The seeming is a falsify. Our
text says: "It seetned to supply food and
to hav e a decided alimentary value." Here
again is "seeming" and not demonstration.
It is true that alcohol seems to supply food.
and this, in realit), is a strong argument
against it We do not want that
which seems to supply food, but
that which does supply food. Focd is the
only thing which repairs waste and keeps
the bod) in health.

LINCOLN'S TENDER CONSCIENCE.
A ltruirli of Irgl I'rartlre Whir It II
erer Tried to I rare An Incident.
Although Mr Lincoln was my senior
b) eighteen vcurs, in one Important par
j ticulir, I certainly was, iu a marvelous
' degrte, his mkiiowledgeil superior. One
I of the first tilings I learned, niter getting
fnirlv under way as a lawyer, was to
charge well for legal services branch
i of the practice that .Mr. Ijncolu never
could leirn In futt, the lawyers of the
circuit often compi lined that his fees
were not nt nil commensurate with the
i servile remit letl Heat length left that
branch of the business wholly to me; and
to in) tender inert v clients were turned
over to be s uijhtereil according to my
ipular and more alliances I ideas of the
ilignit) of our profession This soon led
to serious and shockinp emlMirraisment.
Earl) in our practice a gentleman
named i-ott placed in m) hands a case of
some iuqiort nice He hud a demented
sister vvliii possessed property to the
amount of fllM'KI. mostly in cash. A
conservator, ns he was called, hail been
upnu!itfi! to tike charge of the estate,
and vvc tttrei mployed to resist a motion
to remove the conservator. A designing
ailvciiturer h wl liecome acquainted with
the girl, knowing that she had money,
mil sought to mirr) her hence the mo
tion Scott, the brother and conservator.
In fore we entered ujNin the case, insisted
that I should tix the n mount of the fee. I
told him tint it would be fJ'iO, adding,
however Hint he had bctterwait; it might
not give us much trouble, end in that
event .a lesser amount woull do. He
n.;reesl nt once to p.ay $-iV), as he expected
a hard tontest over the motion The case
w is tr.id liisiil. of twenty minutes Our
success was cornplite Scott was satisfied,
nnd thecrfnlly paid over tho money inside
the bir, Mr Lincoln looking on. scott
then went out nnd Mr Lincoln asked
"What did you charge that tunn'" I told
rsaiil he: "Lamnn, that is all wrong
The service was not worth that sum;
give him lmck at least half of it."
I prottstril that the fee was fixed in ad
vance, tbiit Scott vvns perfectly satisfied,
mid h id so expressed himself.
"1 li it ma) lie." retorted Lincoln, with
n look of distress nnd of nndisnisetl dis
pleasure; "but I am not satisfied. This
is positivedv wrong. Go, call him back
nnd return half th; money at least, or I
will not reo-ive one cent of it for my
I did go, and Scott was astonished when
I handed luck half the feu This conver
sion had attracted the attention of the
I ivv v ers and the court. Judge David
Dtvis il.cn on our circuit bench, called
.Mr Lincoln to him. The judge never
could whisper, but in this instance he
probably did his best. At all events, in
nttiPiptin to whisper to Mr. Lincoln he
trumpeted his rebuke in nlmut these
vvonis, nnd in rasping tones that could lie
heard till over the court room: "Lincoln,
I have been watching you and I.amon.
You are impoverishing tins bar by jour
picayune t barges of fees, and the law)ers
have reason to complain of you. You are
now almost as poor as I.azarus, and if
j ott don't make people pa) you more for
) our services you will die as poor as Job's
Judge O. L. Davis, the leading lawyer
in tluit pirt of the state, promptly ap
plauded this malediction from the bench,
but Mr Lincoln was immovable. "That
money," said he, "comes out of the pocket
of a ixior demented girl, and I would
nithtr starve than to swindle her In ths
That evening the lawyers got together
and tried Mr. Lincoln lwfore a moot tri
bunal called 'The Ogmathorial Court."
He vvns found guilty nnd fined for his
aw fill crime against the pockets of his
brethren of the lur. The fine he paid with
great gtxnl humor, and then he kept the
crowd of law yers in uproarious laughter
until after midnight. He persisted in his
rivolt, however, declaring that with his
consent his firm should never during its
life, or after its dissolution, deserve the
reputation enjoyed by those shining lights
of the pttif ession, ' Catchers and Cheatem."

Once, in 187J, it occurred to him to .
his own baud at versification. He was at
Liverpool, superintending the production
of his theatrical adaptation of ' The Wan
dering Heir He had an idea that a
iiopular ballad, inotleleit uiion those
which are haw kul utxmt the streets, and
emlxidylng the leading incidents of his
play, would serve well as an advertise
ment, and he set himself to the task of
producing one with an earnestness which
no person unacquainted with him could
have lielievcsl to be sincere
For Mjveral davs it occupied the greater
part of his attention, and his delight in
the work was like that of a child "I
never attempted anything of this sort be
fore," he said, "but, i'o you know, I
think I have a knack at It Now listen,"
and he would read a dozen or more lines
of the most ricket) meter and IrirKirous
rhyme that ever were put toother He
nctu illy thought it was a capital thing iu
its wa), untl was as proud of it, when
llnlsl eil and printed, as ij the finest chap
ter he hail written It seems next to in
credible that the author of "The Cloister
and the Hearth should get so fantastic a
notion Into his mind but it is a still
greater marvel that none of his intimate
companions saw anything incongruous iu

Ordinary drinking water, if taken in
large quantities, acts as a solvent and a
dlnretic, and also increases the jierspira
tion if the temperature of the a.r ! high.
Taken in the qunntit) of one or two
quarts at a time, the diluent effect of
water is often sufficient to eliminate an
excest of alcohol from the blood, as after
taking too mucli vv ine. Another effect of
large draughts of water is to make the
pulse slower and to diminish slightly the
normal temperature of the body
Increase of weight Ills lieen claimed 03
a result of systematic water dnnking on

Water thus taken will prevent any actual
loss of weight, but it is not shown that it
will do an) thing more. With the addi
tion of a moderate stimulant, however. It
has often a decided!) fattening effect
A Sealed Lettar Is Sarrrd.
'The sanctity of a sealed letter is so
well secured in this country," said Mr.
Nash, the superintendent of the railroad
mail service, "that if a letter were received
at the city postofiice in Washington, or at
any other postofuce in the country, that
was absolutely known to contain the evi
dence of fraud, the proof of the improper
use of the mails, the postmaster general
himself wonld not dare to break the seaL

A Vew Advertising Dodge.
"I've thought of a new advertising
dodge," said a gentleman recently, "that
I wonder has not been hit npon before.
Now if Stockton or Howellsor some other
of tho.se important wnters should take the
opportunity, just as they are letting their
hero or heroine die of typhoid fever, to let
it be known privately that for value re
ceived they would permit her to be brought
back from the gates t f death by whatever
patent medicine should make the highest
bid for the distinction, I lielieae they
would mate more money than by nil the

Beware of Scrofula
Scrofula Is probably mora general thin any
other disease. It Is insidious In character,
and manifests itself In running sores, pustular
eruptions, bolls, swellings, enlarged joints,
abseessessore eyes, etc Hood's SarsaparRU
expels all trace ot scrofula from the blood,
leaving It pure, enriched, and beaUhy.
" I was severely afflicted with scrofula, and
over a year had two running sores on my neck.
Took five bottles Hood's Sarsaparilla, and am
cured." CCLotzjot, Lowell, Mass.
C A. Arnold, Arnold, Me., had scrof nlous
sores for seven years, spring and falL Hood's
Sarsaparilla cured him.
Is one of the most disagreeable diseases caused
by impure blood. It Is readily cured by Hood's
Barsaparllla, the great blood purifier.
William Spies, EJrria, O., suffered greatly
from erysipelas and salt rheum, caused by
handling tobacco. At times his hands would
crack open and bleed. He tried various prep
arations without aid; finally took Hood's Sar
saparilla, and now says: u I am entirely weU."
"My son had salt rheum on his hands and
on the) calves of his legs. He took Hood's
SarsaparUl and is entirely cared." J. B.
