is nothing new tn the idea, like spiritualism.

other is contemporaneous with man himself.
Ancient records are full of instancv in which

of oae Friederich Anton Mesnier. wh called
attention to himself in 1794 by the publication

particular phase of intellectuality, and it be
vame known either as a acience or an art.

When, however, he attempted to obtain
the sanction of men of ,;,. p.-,., im-luding our
own Benjamin Franklin, their investigation
ended in bis being pronounced an impostor.

the idt-a of an analogy between the action
of a mineral magnet and that of the animal
energy bas given place to the more direct
knowledge that rnero manipulation, the
stroke of a hand, the prolonged look of an
ey or even a breath suffices to produce the
so called ' magnetic" effect upon the subject

Mrs. Burnetii "LV.tte Lord Fauntle

Harper's theatre yesterday, and on both
occasions was given a i lost appreciative
reception. There is something wonder
fully beautiful about thii play; it is de
ligbtfully sympathetic, jiossessed as it is
of a never disappearing touch of nature
such as makes the whole world kin. In it
love and innocence, faitt and obedience
on the part of a child are to beautifully
set forth that the spector whose blood is
dry at dutt must go out upon the ttreet
with bit better nature q ilckened. It is
a compliment to the pi y -going public
that this drama has provtn such a phe
nomenal attraction. 8uth a production
is calculated to make a more profound
and deep impression on the miud of the
child witnessing it than anything else
imaginable. A mere boy through prop
er training, purity of hesrt and trust in
his mother, even in the m dst of richness
and glory, comes into a position to move
the heart of an old man almost in bit do-
tag and tura bim from sternness and
cruelty to tenderness and mercy. It is
tbrougb the medium of suca plays that the
stage fulfills its loftiest n ission. and af
ter seeing the "Little Lord one wonders
why productions which ire designed to
make a hero out of a mix bievous scamp
devoid entirely of moral training, such
as "Peck's Bad Boy" and he "Waifs of
New York," are tolerated . The charac
ter depicted In "Little LohI Fauntlcroy"
is the true boy hero. The play serves
also to reveal in a strikicj manner, the
absurdities of the English i ytem of no
bility. Little Misses Alberta Been and Ada
Fleming alternate the role if the "Little

ORIGIN OF THE TARIFF.
A Measnrs Admittedly Intended to Benefit
When the war of the rebellion was
well under way and the government waa
in dire need of money, taxes were laid
on all sorts of domestic product aa well
as on incomes. This system to a great
degree drew the money needed for the
prosecution of the war from the re
sources of men who had accumulated
fortune of more or less magnitude.
Everything was stamped, and every
transaction in business turned something
into the use of the government. This
w as a general hardship, of course, but
the effects were not directly felt by
workinguien. Those who did feel the
force of the direct tax were highly dis
gruntled, and they applied to congress
for relief. Their application was accom
panied by a tariff bill designed andon
ly admitted to enable those who had
paid internal revenue taxes to 1 reim
That is and this was also frankly ad
mitted, even put forward as an argument
in favor of the proposed measure-the rich
people who had paid taxes wanted some
kind of a scheme to be put in operation
by which they could get their money
back from the people at large. It was
not that tbey wanted to protect or foster
industry. The tariff was ueeded so that
foreign products could not enter this
market without their price being greatly
increased above the normal value. That
would, and did, enable the rich manu
facturers, dealers and others to add to
the prices of domestic articles.
In that way they were enabled to make
the people at large repay them for their
taxes iu the course of a few years; and
as the war tariff has been continued ever
since, with few changes, it follows that
those taxes have lieen returned to the
original payer many times over. The
pretense that the tariff beneiits the work
ingman was made only when the need of
it for government necessities had disap
peared. Then the domestic manufacturers, hav
ing realized the inestimable benefits to
protection as far as their own pockeU
wore concerned, sought for any and ev
erv prwkext for hanging on to the plan
that enabled them to mako cxtraordinary
pioliis. extracting a plain bonus from
the earnings of labor.
aWttesM to VWwaJl Labor from the Tarilt.
It is a funny thing that this taritf svs-
tem, so much vaunted as bulwark to
native workman, rrio u rages and fur
nishes hvmg to foreigners, a cursory
glance at our industries is enough to
prove this. Who work in thegreat ready
made clothing mIioua of the principal
cities? Some Americans, perhaps, but is
not the vast majority made up of Poles
and Bohemians." Who dots not know
that of late years, that is, sinco the war.
when the tariff system was instituted,
Canadians have overrun Now England
towns and secured places in the factories?
The overwhelming presence of under
paid, miserable Hungarians in the Penn
sylvania mining regions is notorious.
And so it goes. Every important pro
tected indu-try has a v.iit proportion of
foreigners in its employ.
How about the unprotected industries,
farming, masonry, the ordinary trades
connected with housebuilding? Iu these
the major part of the workman are
American citizens, and. better still, us

the workmen in "protected" industries
get the highest w ages or live most com
