A.u exchange tells the story of a b
who was sent to market wi:h a sick of
roasting tars, and nfter lingering around
town all day, caiua home without eilin
tlieiii. Wtiitn asked ly his mother why he
had not sol I the corn, he said no one had
asked him what was tu the sack. Jubt so.
How many of our merchants aie like this

If you expect to sell goods in. this day and

-t rec trade means cheaper clothing to
the working man, cheaper tools to the me
chanic and cheaper implements to the
farmer. It rreans that New Jersey silk
mills need not sell their silks in France in
order to import and pay duty on their own
products with money taken from the pock-
eta of the consumer. It means that such
monopolies as the Waltham Watch Co.,
must sell their watches to Americans in
America as cheap as it now sells them to
the Englishman in England or the German
in Germany. It means that farmers shall
get more for their wheat and pay less for
expenses: that two dollars shall go as far
as three dollars with protection, nnd that
the difference will come from the dividends
of the rich stockholders and not from the
hard earned wages of the laborer. Voters
should think of this when they go to the
polls and cast their ballot next Tuesday.
Mr. Will D. Christman, who has been
ditor of Tub Bulletin for two weeks or
so, laid dovn the scissors yesterday and
began to put his grip iu order for a return
to his prairie borne in Fredonia, JKan. He
carao up to visit his mothor's family and
finding the vacancy on Tue Bulletin con
cluded he would try it awhile. He has
been engaged in ruuning a weekly paper
over since he left here, and he argued that
it would be much mora interesting to run
a daily. But in giving us a description of
his conclusions in regard to the matter af
ter he had fried it awhile he expressed a
strong preference for the weekly. To be
compelled to grind out about so much copy
every day subjected a man to a degree of
slavery that be simply could not stand. On
a weekly you may be sure that while some
days may be dull, tho week will average
up well and there is no need to worry about
copy, except to decide what can be left
out best. Argus. ,
Speaking of Sir Moses Montefiore, an
exchange says: "The whole civilized world
joins in doing honor to Sir Moses Monte
fiore, the noble Hebrew philantropist, who
last Sunday completed his round century of
life Had he been born a few hundred
years earlier, tho wealth which he has giv
en bo freely to relieve the suffering, would
have been wrung from him with the rack
and hot pincers, and his name would have
been execrated for a "Christ-killing Jew"
as widely as it is now revered. The world
has lost that strong unreasoning faith in
any creed, as tho only right and true one,
which outlaws thoso who hold another.
Mistaken bs were the Voltaires, the Puines
and the Rousseaus iu many things, the
world owes them much. Skepticism as it
means the examination of creed and sys-tem-tho
refusal to accept anything blindly
has made the nineteenth century and
Sir Moses Montefiore possible. Skepticism
never has and never can shake the noble
faith of such men as Mouteflore the faith
that rises above creed and dogma into deed.

hi cpace Is heaven.' "
Tho Republican demonstration last
night, in point of noise and numbers, was a
very creditable affair. It wis gotten up
entirely -as ono of our Republican friends
stated it to please tho colored rank and
filo and keep them in tho trace. A cam
paign without music, marching, torches,
horses and blue sashes, in tho tym of col
ored voters, is a flat failure and a sham.
This being tho first and no doubt the only
rally in Cairo of tho party this campaign,
all the colored and a few of tho whito
Blaine and Logan men for ten miles around
gathered in and tho number in the proces
sion need only be limited by tho number
of torches to bo obtained. Tho procession

stals iu rod and blue sashes, plumed hats
and brass buttons, galloping up and down

and enthusiasm, marched up tho street,

Scotch air, "Shove about the Bogle," mixed'
with, "Lot ui Gather in tho Boodle.'
