Monday, September 7, 1891.
This is Labor day, a holiday in many
of tbe states and which in a Tery few
years will be, as it should be, a rational
Col. Jobs S. Mosby's long residence
in China has not caused him to forget
how to do tbe old fashioned American
knockdown-aoddrag-.out act if it is fair
to judge by the newspaper reports of bow
he threshed the conductor and the grip
man on a cable train in San Francisco the
other day. About 27 years ago Mosby
was rated as one of tbe most dangerous
men in this country, and the old man
isn't played out yet.
Senator Stanford is in the field as a
presidental candidate not as the Farmer's
Alliance or of the third party, but of the
republican party. His candidacy will
prove a Ood-send to those republicans
who are badly disappointed when Alger
closed up his barrel and announced him
self to be for Blaine, as Senator Stanford
is much tbe richer man of the two, and is
more willing to pay cut money for empty
compliments. As to his getting tbe
nomination there is no more probability
of such a thing than there is of tbe re
publican convention nominating Grover
Again the story is on the way that
Blaine will shortly announce that he will
under no circumstances become tbe can
didate of his party next year, and that be
is in favor of Harrison's renomination.
This story is killed by an addition to the
effect that Mr. Blaine is very atxtous to
retire from public life. Yes, about as
anxious as a hungry horse is to retire
from a troueh of oats. Private life
would be a great vexation to Mr. Blaice
as life ashore is to a sailor, and in spite of
all the stories which have been or may be
told concerning his intentions we predict
that if he is offered tbe presidential nom
ination of his party he will accept it.
The New York Herald says that the
principle of law that a contract in re
straint of marriage is against public policy
and therefore void, was recently invoked
in a Colorado case in which a husband
sought to escape the obligation of an
agreement with his divorced wife. He
had bargained to give her a special sum
every month after their separation as long
as she should remain unmarried. He
kept up tbe payments for some time and
then stepped them, whereupon she sued
him. His defense was that the agreement
was in restraint of marriage and could not
be enforced. The supreme court of the
state does not take this view. "This is
not,"itsays, "a contract in restraint of
marriage. No obligation is imposed up
on the woman not to marry. She is at
liberty at at any time to marry whom and
where she will. There is nothing in the
sgreement wtlch in any way involves the
question of morals or public policy."
The tariff on sucar was repealed not in
order to relieve the taxpayer, but to fasten
more firmly upon the country the policy
of protection. Concurrently with the ab
olition of tbe sugar tax tbe average of
protective duties on other necessaries of
living was raised 49 to 67 per cent. Tbe
tax on sugar went into the federal treas
ury and helped to pay off the public debt.
The added protective taxes, on the con
trary, never reach the treasury. Tbey go
into tbe pockets of the people who de
vised tbem and who elected President
Harrison in order to have them put in
shape for collection . But nearly always
some good comes out of evil doing.
There never was a more effective object
lesson to show that tariff du'.ies are taxes
than has resulted from putting sugar on
the free list. People who were paying
seven cents a pound for granulated sugar
a year ago, and who are now getting it
for four and one-half cents a pound, can
no longer be bamboozled into the belief
that protection protects the consumer.
And they will ask, aptly remarks the Bur
lington Gazette, for tbe repeal of tbe
duty on coal, salt, lumber, wool and other
things of use and necessity, knowing that
they will reap the full benefit therefrom.

I had catanh of tbe head and throat
for five years. I used Ely's Cream Balm,
and from tbe first application I was re
lieved. The sense of smell, which had
been lost, was restored after using one
bottle. I hava found tbe balm the only
satisfactory remedy for catarrh, and it
has effected a cure in my case. H. L

Cousin Mary But do you think yon
can place any dependence in Harry when
he tells you he loves you?
Kate Oh, yes, indeed. He has told
me so many things that I know are true
that ISnt doubt his word, you know.
Mary As for example?
Kate Well, he told me, among other
things, that I was awfully good looking,
and that I was ever so much better than
the rest of the girls. -Boston Transcript.
