"Tom and Jerry" is the latest pro
posed republican ticket. Tom Reed and
Jerry Rusk are the ingredients of the bib
ulous combination. It is thought this
ticket would run faster than water runs
down hill and that men would gulp it
early and often. With it they claim that
the Nutmeg state could certainly be carried.
8t. Louis Republic: It is about time
for Gen. Ruiaker of Illinois to withdraw
his name from promiscuous use in con

There is an impression that a term in
congress and in the board of railway

him for all the blood and sweat he has
ever offered up on the altar.
That old wheel horsa, Oen. John I.
Rinaker, was unfortunate in the selec
tion of the man to nominate him for con-gressman-at
large. Balfour Cowan, of
Macoupin, could give but one reason why
Oen. John should be nominated:
Do you want a man who met the last
armed hosts of the rebellion east of the
Mississippi, and led hia trt ops against the
last fortress of secession? Then that
man I will name to you Oen. John I.
Riasker, of Macoupin county. Cheers
That being Rinaker's sole qualification,
so far as named, and there being no armed
hosts of rebellion to meet this year, he
was beaten, and it is hoped the result will
be that we will see less bloody shirt and
more of the practical issues of the day in
the forth coming campaign in Illinais, as
indeed all over the land.
At no time has the anti-administration
movement in the president's party
been livelier or nearer to the surface than
at this moment. Its head and center is
in New York. Mr. Piatt's visit to Wash
ington on Saturday transferred the head
quarters to the capital, but it goes back
with him to Gotham for the same reason
that where the MacGregor sits there is
the head of the table. A peculiarity of
this movement is that it does not crys
tallize about any one candidate. A half
dozen are "named," but none of them
is practical. Tom Reed enjoys a pissing
vogue, but the landslide of 1890 proved
that no cheap czar can be president of
the United States. The same political
phenomenon proved the unavailability
of Gov. McKinley. John Sherman will
not be nominated while Foraker lives.
Chauncey Depew is impossible until the
granger states shall have learned to re

"Who then?" asks the Chicago Post, and

Tie "fairy story" of Hans Christian All
ien en's life has already been told in his
ewr charmingly simple way. His early
real's were spent in a home of humble toil
n nhe Island of Funen, and he only won
his way to ease and fame after long and
deux crate struggles for a livelihood in Co
pe til agen. A collection of his letters has
just been published, which shows that
whether he is writing to the great ones of
the earth, to kings, queens, grand dukes,
to old friends or to an unknown little Scotch
chile , he is always the same loving, child
like, simple and sincere man, just what the
man 7 young readers of hia works have no
dout t imagined him to be.
En Dhuidastic affection was lavished upon
the poet by all classes of people in his native
coun -ry, from kings and princes to the poor
child ren in the streets, who used to node

To war 1 the end of his life it was said he
used ti show a little vexation if any one,
even a stranger, addressed him otherwise
than "Dear And'sen." "There goes
'Dear And'sen,'" he was accustomed to
hear hii fellow townsmen, large and small,
say as he passed by, and it was in this
tender, familiar fashion that he was spoken
to by yiwng and old.
At the houses of his friends he was petted
like a spoiled child, as well as looked up to
with the respect due to his genius. The
best armchair was always kept for him,
and on nil occasions he was helped first at
table. His extreme dejection when this
privilege was once accidentally accorded to
a young lady, a visitor from England, has
been an usinnly related. The slip had to
be repaired at once and explained to the
amused and bewildered guest. "Dear
And'sen's" spirits promptly recovered and
be rewarded the involuntary offender by
telling l.'er charming stories in the manner
all his own through a long summer after
noon. Though be had lived out his threescore
and ten years, his readers, both young and
old, felt as if they had lost a friend when
they heard of the death of the poet story
teller at Copenhagen in August, 1875.
A German author very beautifully says
of Hans Christian Andersen, "One learns
to love him because he was a child; in this
lay his greatness."
