The computation made by the
Chicago Times shows that within
the last 90 days not less than 250.000
men have had their wages advanced
an average of 11 percent. A Penn

15 per cent instead of the 10 per cent
which has become so general.

A malignant fairy has been making
the greatest confusion in tbe tneo
ries of the protectionists and the free

cannot understand how prices of
manufactured commodities shou'd
rise and wages ot labor advance un
der a wicked free trade tariff. To
tho silverites tho advance in the
prices of wheat, cotton and other ag
ricultural products under a gold
standard is ijuitc as great a mystery.
The simple explanation is that the
theories of the protectionists and of
the silverites both are false and in
capable ot standing the test of reason
and experience. Truth is the great
genius that has made sixes and sev
ens of the predictions of the calamity
howlers and of the cheap money
humbugs ot the silver monger.

Why He Wanted It Printed.
Compositors are supposed to be able to
decipher all kinds of handwriting, even
that of editors and ministers. On this
point Mr. Robert Clark, the Edinburgh
printer, used to tell a story:
Professor Lindsay Alcxauder came
into our ofiiccone Friday with the man
uscript of a sermon.
"You must let me have proofs of this
tomorrow, he said.
I told him the time was too short. Ha
must give us a few days louger.
"No," bo said. "1 must preach this
sermon tomorrow, it is a special ser
mon. I wrote it ten years ago, and now
can't make out a word of it."
From a letter written by Rev. J.
Gunderman, of Dimondale, Mich., we
are permitted to make this extract:

In early times tho Dutch farmers of
tho np river farms of New York had an
iufcuioiis way of recovering pocknt
knives that might have been dropped or
mislaid while plowkig or gardening ras
going on. Cntlery w;s not as cheap then
and abnndant as in theso days ; so the
fanners took tho thrifty precaution of
keeping two or three sunflower seods in
thoir knife handles. Then if tho knives
fell npou broken gronnd and could not
bo readily found, the owners would wait
until tho seeds sprouted, and an isolated
suilflowcr rtalk or blossom in field or

missing article s being at its root.
