Upon the average man there is set
tling the conviction that he, after all
and in spite of all. is the one who
pays the import duty. Many who
once believed the foreig-ner paid-the
duty, and have noted the ever-increasing
cost of living that has ac
companied the ever-increasing tariff
rates, have about reached the con
clusion, .that they, and not the for
eigners, "are the goats."
When all the people really under
stand that an Import duty cf $2 on a

consumer pays $3 for the blanket,
whether it comes through the cus

today. "It Is substantially paid upon
the article of domestc manufacture
as well as upon that of foreign pro
duction. Upon one it is a bounty,
upon the other a burden; and the
repeal of the tax must operate as an
equivalent reduction of the price of
the article, whether foreign or do
mestic." U. S. Grant acquiesced to a sim

At the regular meeting of 'the Peoria,

were startled by a proposition emanat

two years to the number now in exist

A Bad Day for Trusts.
The industrial combinations had
mother bad day in court last week.
In New York the American Ice com
pany, a $40,000,000 corporation sup
plying 8,000,000 customers, was con
victed and fined for restricting
competition and attempting to cre
ate a monopoly. In Michigan the
supreme court refused . authority to
do business in that state to the
American Telephone and Telegraph
company, the latest billion dollar
merger. It was declared to be con
trary to public policy that these two
branches of public service be con
solidated into one corporation.
Whether this contention would
stand in the United States supreme
court is a mooted question, but at
any rate the combination will have

Who Pays Import Duties?
That the sentiment for low tariff
duties is a growing thing, no one will
deny, save, possibly, Senator Aldrich.
Even the' New England states are no

dence of which was supplied in the
fact that the 60,000 majority of Gov

cut to 8,000 in the recent election in
which the Payne bill was an issue.
There are many .reasons ;why the

Embarrassing Situation In Which the
Belgian King Figured.
That kings have feelings and are
subject to embarrassing situations
quite as frequently as ordinary per
sons is proved by an incident in which
King Leopold of Belgium was tbe
chief figure. Henry W. Fischer in his
work "The Private Li-es of Emperor
William and His Consort" tells of the
incident ns follows:
"Court Marshal Liebeunu was all in
a flutter wben In August. 1&)0, his
Belgian majesty came to return the
kaiser's visit to Ostend. for his col
league of Brussels hr.d Informed him
that the sovereign gentleman was ad
dicted to the daily bathing habit and
demanded a hot bath at that.
"At last r.lebenau hit upon a plan.
He set up a modern enough b:ith that
was fed by a cold water faucet and
placed under one end of it a row of
gas jets Intended to heat the water in
the tub. Should his majesty find the
bath too warm, calculated the olueial.
with true native acumen, he can mod
erate the heat by turning on the cold
"Now. Leopold hr.d enjoyed the pre
vious night's festivities very much,
and. observing in the morning that his
slightest wishes in regard to bodily j
comfort had been anticipated, ho rose
in right go d humor. Slipping buoy- j

yell rent the castle from marble hall
to scullery. The sentinels marching up
and down before the grett gate called
out tho guard, and dozens of oflicials
and servants ran to the king's .suit of
apartments, thinking that his majesty
had been attacked. At last, the cries
not ceasing. Herr von Llebcnau. to
gether with the housekeeper and the
king's adjutant, took courage and burst
into tbe bathroom, where they found

in his honor that morning, but viewed
the ceremonies from his window."

had been told that she wouid d.'e of

In the country around were many
farmers native to t ;e soil honest,
democratic, illiterate. Not a man of
them but considered himself just an
good as any ot:e else In the whole
world. They cared little for money,
recognized no difference iu classes,
knew nothing of culture and but little
of relinemont. They were stalwart
and brave and held as an aiticlc of
ffiith that all women were to be pro
tected an J cared for.
Johnnie was u farmer's sou and add

ceitaiu individual coxcoiiibry of dress,
evincrd i'i his corduroy trousers. hi:i
short box coat of tan ciotli. worn over
a full, unstarched white shirt belted
in about his. trim waist; his gaunt leted
red tan gloves and a partridge feather
stuck through the band of his soft
felt hat. This costume he donned
when going to "the borough," ;ts they
called the little town near by. but
when coming to the farm, where he
"helped" to cut hay. dig sweet pota
toes and do other such things, he wore
any old clothes, with neither collar
ncr tie Indeed, he was often lacking
in these essentials of civilization even
when clad in his very best.
Johnnie was present when the girl
Grst arrived, and bis heart had swelled
with pity for the helplessness that was
so nrparent. She was dainty ami fair,
and he thought her far more beautiful
than any one he had ever seen before.
Her friend, with all her womanly at
tractions, suffered. inhis opinion, by
the contrast, and this ho did not hesi
tate to express frankly, saying:
Miss Daisy, you're mighty purty,
but you cau't hold a candle to that lit
tle girl from New York."
It was all a source of constant fun
to the home family, but they were
careful not to say or do anything that
would wound the man by hurting hi:j
self love. Instead they treated him
according to his own standard, which
only made his admiration more ap
parent and outspoken.
When the girl was taken so ill her ad
mirer was wretched indeed. He could
not see her, but every morning he
came and interviewed her friends and
with bold awkwardness would seud a
message of hope for her recovery. Gen
erally he'brought a bird for her break

It was not long before the glorious
southern winter brought color tothe
pale checks, rounded their outlines and
imparted strength to the weakened
frame, for she would sit for hours out
in the sunshine, stretched oil in a
roomy steamer chair. Meanwhile John
nie passed bsck and forth attending to
his duties or stopped nud talked In his
long, slow way. trying to find out what
other service he might be able to ren

"I sho' am proud you be gettin' bet

up and laugh just as happy. 1 was

The girl grew well rapidly, and the
family rejoiced. Johnnie was gayly
sympathetic and . still brought her

the game food should build her up.
The fields were full of birds, and Jiis
capacious pockets served as game
bags. Often drawing one from their
depths, he would present it to her.
saying, with a broad smile:
"I brucg you a turckledove.' and
then laugh aloud with delight when he
saw her interest and pleasure.
Johnnie's sister was to be married,
and all at the farm were invited." The
girl and her friend and the friend's
mother went, amused and pleased in
anticipation of the novel experience.
Johnnie met them, rndiant In bolidny
attire, and presented them duly to his
whole family, laying the hospitalities
cf their liot.ie at tiie feet of the vis
itors. Around the girl the admiration of
the entire assemblage centered. She
eclipsed in interest the attendants, tho
groom, the bride herself. The father
declared her to be "the pettiest pirl 1
ever seed." while tho mother, sisters
and various women who were present
gazed at hrr in dumb admiration. Not

ecstatic thanks frc.r.i her admirer and

rough farmhouse well deserved b :"g
photographed, for it had been turned,
within ard without. i::to a bower of
rustic bojiutv in honor of the occasion.
It was wreathed with graceful gray
moss and garlanded with evergreens
and the plowing crimson berries ot
holly and bramble vine mixed with the
snowy ' waxen clusters of tho native
mistletoe: !t evinced taste and an lu
nate sense of the beautiful and artistic
quite unlocked for among this class,
but the great, wide chimney, with its
roaring light wood tire, threw its danc
ing golden radiance over decorations
as beautiful :'.s any bride could desire.
To the girl fresh from a great city
and its conventions everything was
new, interesting, charmin?. and John
nie's sister sang his praises right ear
nestly: 'Johnnie's always thinkin' after
mammy an' me. lie's sho'ly a food

don't smoke, an' he don't chew none,
an' be never goes out nowhere 'loss

always says that when a boy is good
to his ov.u people he'll sho'ly be good
to his wife."
The friend heard the conversation,
understood and smiled. Johnnie was
uncouth and itrnorant. but be was suf
ficiently tho lover to endeavor to turn
everything to bis advantage.
Meanwhile a comfortable residence
upon another holding was being erect
ed for the family nthe fsrm. and iuto
this they, with their uuesi. soon mov
ed. She could walk a little now with
out her crutchi's. and Johnnie came
and planted trees and shrubbery while
she looked on and directed. Every one
teased the girl about the countryman's
devotion, but she smiled on him kind
ly and made fcim happy by her Interest
in his simple talk, while almost im
perceptibly some of his rough edges
were smoothed away.
Soon came the spring and the wild
flowers and tbe joyous gathering of
luscious berries, and thou In the height
of all this beauty the jgirl had to re
turn to her city home. Johnnie griev
ed He soon ceased coming to tho
new farm, and it was uot long before
his odd ways and hi.s frankly express
ed admiration for their erstwhile guest
became only an amusing memory.
Three years passed, and the girl in
her northern home know many changes
from health to sickness, but at length

Johnnie heard of ber arrival and
beamed with happiness. Ills heart had
remained true to Its idol, and he has
tened to renew his allegiance. The
girl, though, became shy of him now
be seemed too deeply in earnest.
"Little girl." be said. "I sho am
glad in my heart to see you and proud
all through to watch you walk so nim
ble." She smiled at the phrasing, but felt
that it would never do to trifle with a
true affection, no matter how lowly
the station of tbe man by whom it
was honestly offered- So she drew
somewhat aloof in her manner, but he
grew only the more devoted. lie was
her humble slave. He tried to fulfill
her wishes before she could utter
them. He would walk miles to do her
errands or bring her bundles. His
constant services spoke more than
words, but he often assured her thnt:
"You be the pleasicgcst girl that
ever come out of New York."
It was difficult for him to realize
that she really needed no assistance
now. He was ready to lend his strong
arms to carry her over every rough
place that met her feet, reminding her
"The List time I never could permit
you to walk there no. nev-er. nev-er!"
m the weeks went by nil too rapid
ly and at last the end came.
The day before the departure of the
gir.1 Johnnie had labored hard and
seemed to find constant movement
and work necessary for ease of mind.
He bad strapped the trunk and locked
her valise and in his rough way bad
done everything of which he could
think which might add to her comfort.
The girl was very shy when with him
and tried to keep her friend ever
present, feeling that some confession
of affection impended and being very
sorry and ritiful for the pain she
might be obliged to inflict. At last by
some inadvertent chance tbey were
left alone together.
Johnnie stopped in drawiDg the case
over her umbrella and. looking at her.
"Does your heart hurt you about

"I am sorry to leave ray friends.

"Yes. I hope so. 1 will surely come

Johnnie rested his bands on tbe top
of -the rolled umbrella and snid slowly:
"When yon come back, little girl, I
will be ready. An' will you marry

in his pleading.
The girl gave a little cry of dismay,
shook her head and clasped her bands,
"Oh, Johnnie, don't! Don't look thnt

cannot, and I do hnte to hurt you so!"
And the brown eyes fi'.led with tear?.
