Thb Manchester Democrat nays "the
majority should rule." While this is true,
a matter of. fact the raijorit does not
rule. If it did the Mt Kinley law would
be promptly obliterated from the statute
books, for popu'ar condemnation of the
measure was overwhelming. That the
law cannot be repealed is a conclusive
proof that between the theory and prac
tice of this govtroaient there is a radical
if not an irreconcileable flifl-rrnce.
Quinct Herald: The democrat
should carry rifles, not shot-guns, when
they go bunting the tariff. Shot-cuns
will scatter all over creation, and may
never bring down the game you want.
With your rifle you can pick out your bird
and shoot to ki.l. A general fire at the
whole fljck of taiiff frauds is too cen
tral. But if they pick out certain Krost.
features that nine-ientbs of the people
of all political cIhsscs want to see killed,
the republican party will be kept too
busy picking up the dead and wounded
to pay any attention to free coinage oi
any other Kid issue.

Forgetting both the auimosities and
tortuosities of the late carapiiga, all
good cilizens of New York will hail with
pleasure the following declaration ot
principles in Gov. Flower's inaugural
message to the general assemMj :
The legislature has yet msdii no provis
ion for the proper representation of the
state at the world's fmr in Chic-ico nt-x
year. This should be one of the tirsi
acta i.f your honorable body. The time
is growipg short for the erection of a
suitable building for the exhibition of
the state's interests, and if New York i
to be represented comnensurately wilL
its commanding position and tre.it re
sources, special legislative action is ne
cessary. This duty the ftate owes to in.
commercial and industrial interest!). The
provision for state representation ami
participation should be liberal but no
extravagant. Our citisc?ns will nut be
grudge the appropriation of public money
for this purpose, which will enable the
state to be properly represented, but thej
will disapprove aoy extravagant expend
itures and will insist whatever ap;npri
ation is granted shall be wisely expended
under competent direction.

Mr. Cleveland's personal popularity
among democrats is not ixrceii -d, it it is
cqalled, by that of any man in the coun
try, and the presumption that the result
of the speakership contest made bis rt
nomination out of the question is being
vigorously resented. Amoni? the letter
on the sut ject received by the Republic
is one from Judge J. W. Eruf rson, of
lronton, strongly combating this assump
tion. "The defeat of Mills," be writes
"should change no issue; should not
change the attitude of the party towards
the man who stood at the frout as our
deal of a safe and popular leader during
these late years; the man whose name ral
lies about it more genuine luve, confi
dence and enthusiasm than any other
name in our country,"
The Republic does not believe that the
vote in the house caucus has changed
the attitu ;e of the democratic party tow
ards either men or measures for nexi
November. The party is more deter
mined than ever on a reduction of the
tariff to a strictly revenue basis Tne
renomination of Mr. Cleveland is no
more "out of the question" now than it
was six months ai;o. Nor, on the other
hand, is it any more necessary . If a
New York candidate is necesary ;his
year, then Mr. Cleveland i-t ttie
man. if the New York de'nga
tion is packed against him; ,t
msy easily nitike his nominatton moos?..
ible, but it can do no mre than that, it
cannot choose the nominee or dic;ate to
If Mr. Cleveland were nominated, the
Republic believes he would bee.hct d
easily auaii.si either Blaine or Harrison,
but it has never bi lieved in considering
him as the only possible democratic can
didate. To do so would be to greatly
weaken tho party by committing it to a
single man, so that failure to nominate
him would disorganize it. We haye as
sumed that Mr. Cleveland is the f Irons
est New York candidate possible for the
party in fact, the only stroug candidate
it could now select from that state. But
we have for a long time believed, and we
still believe, that the strongest possible
candidate for the party wou.d he a good
western democrat with a Safe record,
which, without antoconizing eastern
democrats, would rally the west for h re
newal of the western movement of 1890.
Such a caudidate would sweep tbe coun
try, and we believe be w ulil be elected
by a two-thirds rnijority in the elect Tnl
college as against Blaine, Jiirnson or ar.y
other republican idetifi-d with radic l
ism as it bts put itself on record siuce t:ie
Harrison administration revived It.
The bust advice the Republic can sive
democrats is not to make up tin irniiods
that Mr Cleveland or any other one innn
i necessary to the success of leru Kiratic
principle. By rcfraini g from d .line so
they can help to keep available v ry man
they msy possibly need for the nomina
tion, and at the same time thev c m pre
vent cabals from thrusting a candidate on
them. The Republic's candidate is lire
man who can carry three western slates
and New York. Perhaps it ndjiht be
able to name bim, but it will leave that
responsibility to the dmocratic party in
AJ OLD DOLLY.
Only a old wooden dolly.
With an arrii and a leg a-mU(ng,
The point of hr nose rubbed off, I s'pose.
Through too mach washing or kissing.
In a frock of fitted satin.
With tinsel lace tarnished and tattered;
Tier "coal scuttle" bonnet holds, alas,
A head that's a tritle battered.
Oh, no, she ha-s not lost her locks;
Hie novor had carls black or golden;
A doll's wig w w safely painted on
Id the days tbat you call "oldeu."
Yon laugh and think her "too f tinny;"
Vet once she was just as much cherished
As your dolly is by a wee girl
Whose dolly days long asu perished.

One Form of Vanity.
The sweetest wife arid mot tier in New
Y'ork said to me the other day: "When
uny one I know is i-ude, or unki.id to me I
am sorry for that erson, but 1 do nut take
the act as personal. I attribute it to ill
health or lack of training, but 1 never per
mit myself to thi ik that. I can be hurt, hy
it. When any one is kind and thoughtful,
however, I take it as a jietsoi al compli
ment and mark cf special favor. 1 sup
pose it is a very egotistical way of looking
at things, but 1 gel a great deal of happi
ness out, of my vanity. 1 go through life
never feeling slighted or insulted or wound
ed, und am coustuntly delighted with the
goodrus and sweetness w hich jK-opie be
stow upon me."
As I listened to the fair lady's words it
seemed to me that such vanity as hers was
a nnt, ilesiraole quality to posses, aud 1
wished there was in ore of it in the world.
I know another woman who madeira
rule early in life to only notice other peo

to carefully notice 1 heir graces and virtues

A eiiKlble ii-w of 14 Condition.
Dr. A rahell Kene.iiy views t he fact that
many women must remain spinsters by
reason of their prep imierauce iu inimiiers
with cheerful equanimity, for, she says:
"The increased an I increasing surplus of
women is forcing 11 ion us t he impossibility
of marrying nil our daughters, and we ure
compelled therefore to provide them with
professions whereb.- they can make pro

HUMAN RESEMBLANCES TO ANIMALS.
gome Are Positively Fanrinating, While
Others Leave Much to lie Deitlred.
The French, who are famous for their
keen observation, have a saying to the ef
fect that every one bears a resemblance,
more or less exact, to some animal. There
are many persons outside of the French
nation who claim that lines of likeness to
horses, dogs, monkeys, birds, fishes, snakes
and tigers, as well as to those of sheep,
goats, pigs, cows, etc., can be traced in
nien and women who "yet are really hu
man and without any moral likeness to
their prototypes. Some of these resem
blances make pretty faces enough. If the
horse and cow leave much to lie desired on
the score of beauty the dog gives several
fascinating types of beauty. We have
known spaniels and setters and skyes and
Blenheims and funny little Japanese non
descripts, in frocks and hats, walking
erect on two legs with human voices to
match their human minds who were as
delightful in their womanhood ns lhey
were pretty in their personality. And yet
their faces with only a few strokes of the
pencil could la? made an exact likeuess of
the creatures we have mentioned. We
have known monkey faces as pleasant
may we say as kissable? as those sweet,
round kittei faces which irresistibly sug
gest the princess who had la-en the White
Cat ns those blunt nosed kid faces which
recall Damon ami Ualatea as those sharp
chinned mouse faces which are spoiled
when they run into the ferret type as
those faces like to fawns where the dis
proportionate length is redeemed by the
lovely liquid eyes and the graceful neck.
We have known a tiger face that had its
fascination, if also it suggested cruelty and
treachery. But thesuake, and the lizard,
and the pig, and the fish we have not known,
iu any way beautiful, nor is the sheep a
type for idealization. The bird, albeit
bony and beaky, may pass as a pretty kind
of creature when young and not too jerky
in its movements, nor too perky in its ca
resses. Do we not ail know the women
who peck like birds when they make a
show of kissing? They canuot kiss evtu
their babies like true humans, but daband
dash and peek at the soft lower face like a
bird picking up grain; aud their pointed
lips seem as if they must hurt as mtieh as
the bony beak they .simulate.
And are not hands very often like claws?
And did not Dickens liken the working
hiuewsof an old woman's shriveled neck
to the scratching legs of poultry? And are
not certain men like eagles? and certain
others like secretary birds? and others
agaiu like herons? And, yet again, others
like geese? And do we not ail know the
dove among women, and the litite browa
w ren, and the angry little hedge sparrow,
all fuss and bluster and fight and bathers
with a body no bigger than a walnut un
derneath those apparently quite formid
able quills? Purely! In fact, birds have
nearly as large a follow ing as dogs, and we
might multiply the instances of likeness
till we had included ail the species given
by White ol 'Sci borne or even by Audubon.
