Juhjcct to the action of the Republicans of

That "nothlnjr succeeds like success,"'
is a cruel, heartless saying, fit only to
be quoted in defense o( what were other
wise indefensible. Failure, honorably
met and nobly borno, 1 a thousand t linos
better than the success that is gained
through fraud, double dealings, or any of
the arts of the dishonest man. Better,
by far, that a man should live in obscur
ity all his days than that he should win
the highest success, that oan come to him
who trades in truth to the hurt of his
neighbors. The money-making spirit
has so taken possosslon of a largo share
of American people that they will defend
or excuse almost any act not openly
criminal that enriches the actor. Ex.
t Two great gatherings of interest to
many peoplo in Uoynoldsville are the
. Presbyterian General Assembly and the
Methodist Episcopal General Confer
ence. The formor begins its session at
Portland, Oregon, to-morrow and the
utter hub neen in session ai uraanu,
Neb.,since May 2nd. These great gath-
erings of christian workers represent a
very large constituency of some of the
best peoplo of our land. In each of
these questions of vital Interest aro to
be considered. You will find in our
column lute reports of these conven
tions and whether you are Methodist or
Presbyterian in fulth, those will lie of
interest to you. It is too soon now to
comment upon the result of those "meet'
ings, but during the future yoars it Is

It is a mutter of surprise to many keen
observers that Great Britain has eon-
aented to take part in an international
conference on silver. 1 The English pa
1 Vers are making very sharp attacks on
Mr. Goschen for givinar hia assent to
the oonferenoe and, with the present
state of public opinion in England, it
seems remarkable that Mr. Goschen
should have yielded to the request of
our Government. Tho co-operation of
i enough governments has already been
secured to assure the meeting of the
t conference, and it is to be hoped that
,', .good result may Jollow. The question
i of the basis of currency is really an in

Senator Gorman mini ) u very polite
and able speech In the Senate a few days
slnco. The questliin was on tin) passage
of the naval appropriation bill., The
Maryland leader, who aspires to head
the next Democratic National ticket,
expressed himself M not in sympathy
with the Holmun theories and plans,
but heartily in favor of such appropria
tions as were demanded by the growth
and progress of the country. lie be
lieved, he said, in tho encouragement
and fostering of American industries.
Heearnestly favored sufficient appropri
ation for the rebuilding of tho American
Navy. This utterance of Senator Oor
man will strengthen the already strong
hold ho has on tho Democracy and tho
people of the country at large. Strang
er things, by far, have hapixmod than
would occur if Mr. Gorman is accepted
by his party as their leader in the em
Ing presidential campaign.
All lloman Catholic people as well as
people of the various Protsant denomi
nations are Interested in the recent
utterance of the Vatican in regiti-d to
the plan of education put in praetlco by
Archbishop Ireland. A largo number
of our American ioople are Catholics,
and among them are found many of the
most intelligent and liberal minded of
our citizens. Any movement which is
to effect a change in the methods of
education approved by the olllcers of
this church Is an Important one. It is
claimed by high officials of tho church,
however, that the recent letter from
tho Holy See will not change the decrees
of tho council of Baltimore. But tho
views of leading prelatea differ some
what as to the proer Interpretation of
the Pope's letter. Let us hoH that
aside from all other issues involved
such action has been and will be taken
as shall lead ultimately to the perfect
accord of the Catholic church and our
public school system.
What is tho difference between nig
gardliness and ext ravagance? Two men
may have the same Income and expend
the same sums and one be cxtravugant
and the other parsimonious. So with
town, stute or national affairs, the
qtiestion of oxN3ndItures is not one of
amount but one of newsslty Biid wisdom.
That man is a niggard and a sHndthrlft
who stints his family in providing the
necessuncs of life and squander his
income in personal indulgence. So
congress may bo at tho some time par
s'jnonious and extravagant. The ques
tion the voter should ask of that man or
party which asks his suffrage is not how
much will you favor as a sum total of
appropriation, but for what purpose aro
you in favor of voting money. Scruti
nize not the footing at the bottom of
the page as you study appropriation
bills, but tho items of the bill.
The last congress was severely criti
cised because of its large expenditures.
It seems from present indications that
tho present session is also to mako
unusually large appropriations. Yet
from all tho politicians during a cam
paign wo hear much alxmt economy.
Let our government lie run economi
cally, let official extravagance cease,
let businoss methods prevail. But how?
Suroly not by tho voter accepting every
partisan cry of economy that is raised
and looking only at the sum total of
appropriations; but by each citizen
Informing himself concerning the nec
essity and wisdom of tho various ex
penditures. Tho intelligent voter is
not the man who takes tho mere "say
so" of tho political stump shaker or
party pajicr, but the man who investi
gates, meditates and votes whon ho
votes, 'because ho knows what ho wants
and whore and from whom to get it.
What we desire surely, as citizens, is
neither parsimony nor extra vagunco,
nor both combined us they frequently
aro in our governments' cxiMjnse bill,
but economy. Let all make a study of
the work of tho present congress and
let each determine for himself as to the
wisdom of its bills.
Door Plates Out of Eashion.
How completely the doorpluto has
gone ont of fashion. When I came to
New York to work for a living, a door
plate was as essential an insignia of gen
tility as a bank account, and shop
where they were sold were to be found
everywhere. On the residence streets
of the better class, at a certain hout
every morning, you would see a servant
on every stoop, polishing the plate np
before its owner had his breakfast. The
doorplate was with us what the marble
front step is to a Philadelphia Phila
delphia's front steps are there yet.
Onr doorplates have become things
of the past, found only ou old fashioned
houses without pretensions to style.
Their places have probably been taken
by the coats of arms which fashionable

A Much Dreaded Fly.
The man eating fly of Central Amer
ica inhabits the low lying coast regions,
and is much dreaded by the natives for
the fearful results which follow its
sting. Naturalists call it Lucilia homi
nivora. The average specimen is about
a third of an inch long. It has a big
head, with the eyes on top. Its cheeks
are a golden yellow, its abdomen dark
blue with purple bands, its legs black,
its wings unusually big, and they pro
duce a continuous and loud buzzing
when in motion.
The person bitten by this fly gets a
disease called myiasis. It generally be
gins with an itching of the nose, then
that organ swells and bleeds; next it be
comes ulcerated, and in theso ulcers
may be found the larva) of the fly. The
whole face becomes swollen, erysipelas
sets in, followed by meningitis and
death. One man I knew shot himself
after he had been bitten rather than
face the tortures ho knew were certain.
Cure is difficult. Subcutaneous injec
tions of chloroform sometimes do good,
but as often fail. One man I heard of
was enred by lemon juice injected into
his blood. Interview in Now York
