Competition and Socialism.
This country haa been founded upon
the principle of free competition. The
working people, as a class, were never
in a more prosperous condition than
now. There never was a time, in the
opinion of the lloston Journal, when
thrift was so sure of its reward. There
never was a country in which entcr-
prize was more certain to reap its
profits. Competition is not essentially
selfish. The train of one docs not mean
the Injury of another. Trade advan
tages are reciprocal, and it makes no
difference whether the object in sale is
land or labor. The origin of much of
the present restlessness is ill the fact
that the mass allow the few to set the
pace for them. The workingmen
measure the comforts by the standards
of the nouvean riche. But the turning
over of the industries to the state would
not assure them such luxuries as they
apparently long for, while it would be
sure to bring in its train a long series
of evils. Not the least of these would
be the destruction of the principle of
personal enterprise. This has been the
tap-root of our national progress.
t 'Worse Than Fits.
' Policy in the bands of a diplomat Is
like a sharp sword in the grasp of an
able fencer, but policy In the hands of
fools is like a good knife wielded by a
half-wit. It takes brains, writes Am-
ber In the Chicago Herald, to be truly
'politic; the unfortunate person who at
tempts to be cautious, and wise, and
Teticent, and to let policy thread every
-action as a string runs throngh glass
twads, only succeeds in making himself
ridiculous. To be afraid to speak what
Is in your mind for fear you will make
yourself unpopular, to bo too cautious
to mention the fact that you are having
at new latch put on your front gate for
fear that you might be over-communi
cative, to be backward in taking sides
for fear of committing yourself to a
losing cause, may be politic to your owa
feeble intelligence, but in the estima
tion of brainy folks it is a species of fe
line Idiocy worse than fits.
As elephant ranch is among the nov
elties in stock-raising promised for the
Pacific coast. A Californian is enthu
siastic over a project he is about to
earry out of starting an elephant ranch
TO that state. He proposes to cultivate
the elephant for its meat and its ca
pacity for hard and diversified work.
He says that "as an article of food the
elephant is superior to the horse," and
most people will be willing to accept
bis statement, though not fully appre
ciating Its force. He says that behind
-a tough exterior hides a tender steak,
and that African explorers arc profuse
in their praise of elephant cutlets. A
full-grown elephant weighs about seven
thousand pounds, and the rancher
counts sis thousand of this as good
meat. He Is going to train the ele
phants to pick oranges and hire them
out to orange-growers.
Mh-ford, Conn., can boast of one ol
the queerest organizations in this coun

"Old Maids' Society," made up of ladies
of all ages who have pledged them-
selves to refrain from committing matri
mony. Should any member so far for
jret her allegiance to the cause as to
ievcn contemplate the possession of
3rasband she is forthwith stricken from
fthe roll and her picture draped with
black. It is said that many members
liave been dropped, and there are only
1a few more left.

It is exceedingly gratifying to know
that, dispite their most determined
opposition and their theatrical dis
play of alarm, the Southern people
have been immeasurably blessed by
the practical operation of our protec

inal home ol the protective theory,
but when under its stimulating and
festering influences the Kast sprung
into pre-eminence as a manufacturing
section and center the South begau
to repudiate a policy that was doing
more for others than tor themselves.

The times have changed, and the

Some years ago when the llouck
railroad was being pushed on west

Judge Lacks said to me: "I am sat
isfied that railroad will never be built

extend his road over those hills when
he has a level, smooth, fertile bottom
country to choose between, and when
by taking Ihc latter route ho can also
touch Poplar liluff. Aud further
more I am acquainted with the soil
in Southern Wayne. It is thin and
sterile. Houck never will build hi
road over through those hills." Hut
Judge Larks erred. The road was
built and lias since been iu operation.
