Caution to Consumers of Coal Oil.
jOy-This company from this date will not linmllo IllSlirnnco OH and Ptiro
llno for the following reasons: Insurance OH Tank Co., who claim to own
these Trade Mark brands, have not during several years past had any regular source of Oil
supplies, but have received Iiifmrimco Oil and Plirollno from sources where they
could buy cheapest without reffard to quality. Insurance Oil is simply
any quality of Water White oil. Consumers liavo no Ktiarantoo of its Fire
Test or purity. Plirollno is simpiy any quality of 74 0 Gasoline. As Gasoline
varies great'y in purity, consumers should only buy under the proper name of 7i 0 Gas
olino, and then be sure the goods are guaranteed by responsible parties. The quality ol
Insurance Oil and Plirollno which has been furnished by Insurance Oil Tank
Co., has almost entirely stopped the demand, but we wish to warn intended purchasers we
Will not bo responsible for these brands. Very Respectfully,

ject of deep interest not only to us, but to our
cuildren our relations wilh Mexico. There
is no subject I have taken a deeper intctest
in. i nave moment long ana earnestly, and I
know vou gentlemen nve thought too, upon
our relations with our sister republic. South
of ui, gentlemen, we have a neighbor capable
of development. And this development will
be perceived in a very short time, not only by
the United States, but by every civilized
country in the world. The United States has
heretofore neglected this Souteern Republic.

come to regard it earnestly for our own gen
eral good. The
RESOURCES OF MEXICO ARE ASTONISHING
and are being devaloped daily. I hope, gen
tlemen, ana nope earnestly, mat in the years
to come be he a Republican or a Democrat
who guides the ship of State, it will be his ob
ject to preserve tne most intimate relations
between the treat and little remiblies
of this continent. We must take our
neighbor under our wing. We must
help her to cultivate her own great resources.
We must teach her that it is for her interest to
maintain a close alliance with us. This must
be our object, and statesmen should think of
inn, and think deeply on it. Mexico pos
sesses all the essential elements oi unlimited
proiperily. Her mines are rich. Railways
are now developing her commercial re
sources, and educational facilities arc making
statesmen, gentlemen, in that little Republic
snutn oi us. Let the two countries be united
in friendly alliance, and if this were done and
war should follow
THE TWO COUNTRIES COMBINED
could shut themselves up In their shells and
sustain themselves longer than the attacking
parties could do without the products of the
two Kcpuuitcs oi ints continent. Mexico is
such a broad field to talk on, gentlemen, that
i migni go on lor a long time telling you
what you already know, that a Republic is
growing up br our side, and that we should
be united with it commercially and sociably.
Lord Chief Justice Coleridge, referr
ing to the persecution of G. W. E.
Foote, the infidel editor of the London Free
thinker, says that "persecution, unless it was
very thoroughgoing, was apt in the igth cen
tury to be in vain," and adds :
"It is also true that persecution is a verv
easy form of virtue. It is a more difficult
form of virtue quietly and unostentatlouily to
obey what we believe to be God's will in our
own lives. It is not very easy to do it ; and
u mines mucn less noise in tne world. It is
very easy to turn upon somebody else who
differs from us, and in the guise of zeal for
God's honor to attack somebody for a differ
ence of opinion, whose life may be more
pleasing to God and more conductive to his
honor than our own. And when it is done by
persons whose own lives are not free Irom re
proach ar.d who take that particular form of
zcn ior liou wnicn consists in putting the
criminal law in force against others, that, no
doubt, does more to create sympathy with
the defendant than with the prosecutor. And
if jt should be done by those who enjoy the
wit of Voltaire and whe do not turn away from
the sneers of Gibbon, and rather relish the
irony of Hume, our feelings do not go with
the prosecutors and we are rather disposed to
sympathize with the defendant. It is still
worse if the person who takes such a course
takes it, not from a kind of notion that God
wants Ms assistance and that he can give it
less on his own occount than by prosecuting
others but if it is mixed up with anything of
E artisan or political feeling, then nothing can
e more foreign to what is high-minded, or
religious, or noble in men's conduct; and in
deed, it seems to me that any one who will do
that, nor for the honor of God, but for the
purposes of the ban, deserves the most dis
