Let democrats not be wholly dis
hearttned and discouraged over the
result of ye. t rday's eltc;ion. When
inc nrsi sting or defeat disappears it
will be found that considerable com
fort niav ho extracted from the re
turns. Mckinley's victory is sweep
ing and tituiihatie, according to As
sociated l'lrss reports, but when a
sober analysis of the existing condi
tion is made, it is surprising that
ine neniccrais saven anything from

Besides, the republican majority In

career of William Jennings Brvan

their il'-ctttn victory, the trusts,
syndicates and plutocrats that con

party, will inaugurate a monetary
and tariff system that will eventually

prosperity, which is sure to ensue
through the combined efforts of the
manufacturers and corporations, will

once the thin veil of deception is

great republican party will be seen

Make Your Workmen ComfortaWM.
A manufacturer, in gossiping about
the best ways of handling workmen,
says that the nature of the floor of the
shop has a great deal to do with the
amount of work that is got out of the
operative staff. lie was once struck by
tlie diflerence in the apparent activity
of two sets of men working on similar
jobs at the vise in two rooms of a large
shop. One was in an old building and
the other was in one of recent construc
tion. In the' former the men stood easily
and naturally at their work and showed
no symptoms of a hankering for a seat
on the bench, while in the latter the
men were shifting their weight from
one Joot to the other, throwing one leg
upon the bench at every opportunity
and showing every evidence of foot fa
tigue. The superintendent guessed that
the difference was due to the floors upon
which the two gangs of men were stand
ing. In the old shop the floor was of
wood, springy to a certain extent and a
poor conductor of heat. In the new
shop it was of the most beautiful con
crete, an excellent conductor of beat
from the feet of the workman and as
unyielding as granite rock. So the
benches in the new shop were raised
a couple of inches and each man
was given a platform of wood that
rested on twocrosspieces at the end and
had a slight spring to it The foot
weariness disappeared almost at once,
and no further trouble was experienced.
Which shows that the prettiest floor is
not always the best for the workmen.
The Pretty Fanay.
One of f ho most cheerful flowers of
this and of my mother's garden was tho
happy faced littlo pansy that under va
rious fanciful folk names has ever been
loved. Like Montgomery's daisy, it
blossomed everywhere. Its Italian name
means idle thoughts; tho German, "lit
tle stepmother." Spenser called it
"pawnee." Shakespeare said maidens
called it "love in idleness," and Dray
ton named it heartsease. Dr. Prior gives
thnso names: Herb trinity, three faces
under a hood, fancy, flamy, kiss me, pull
me, cuddle unto you, ticklo my fancy,
kiss me ero I rise, jmup up and kiss me,
kiss me at the garden gate, pink of my
Joan. To theso let me add the New
England names: Birdseye, garden gate,
johuny jump up, kit rnu about, nouo so
pretty and ladies' delight
All these testify to the affectionate
and intimate friendship felt for this
laughing and fairly speaking little gar
den face, not the least of whose endear
ing "qualities was that after a half
warm, snow melting week in January
or b ebruary this brightsome littlo "Ac-
light" often opened a tiny blossom to
greet and cheer us, a true "jump up

The Uoon Will Never Change.
The headline may give the reader tho
idea that something has gotten wrong
with our satellite and that in the fu
ture Luna's fair face will not get
through the regular phases of new moon,
first quarter, full moon and last quar
ter, as has been her wont since the time
"when the mind of man runneth not
to the contrary."
Eut such, dear reader, is not tbcMdea
wo mean to convey, but we do mean ex
act ly what the headline says, that under
existing conditions (and the conditions
which have existed on the surface of the
moon for jierhaps millions of years) it
is a physical impossibility that tho face
ct the moon should change one iota.
There are neither outside nor inside in
fluences that can be brought to bear to
make a change in the configuration of
"our silvery 6ister world. " Her inter
nul fires have long since died ont and
there is an utter absence of both air and
water. Existing under such conditions
it is utterly impossible that the face cf
the moon should undergo change or dis
integration even in the course of a hun
dred million years. St Louis Republic.
