Thtjiudat, Dbcbmbbb 1, 1892.
Th Thirty-eighih gtner&l assembly
will be expected, among otber things, to
tackle the school book trust acd the
school furniture trust. The latter, ac
cording to tiie Chico Dtep&tch, laid a
tribute of more than $10,000 upon CM-
caco alone (Juries the past season. It
appears that a school furniture factor;
with which Chicago bad a contract at a
fair price, as burned out, and that as a
result of that coiflagration ihe school
furniture trust was enabled to enter into
a contract with the city by which it loei s
the above mentioned amount of money.
The school book trust has had its
clutches on the puree strings of the peo
ple of Illinois for many years, and legis
lation is needed to compel it to stop.
Brother Wanam akbb told his class
at Sunday school the other day:
The strife between God's people and
His enemies is like that between the two
great political parties, a continual and
ceaseless wrangle. On the one side are
the righteous, on the otber the unright
eous. There is no third side. We must
choose one or the other. Indifference is
fatal. Every man stands ti'her ffilh or
The New York Trilune, afur two
weeks of deliberation, withdraws its var
ious other explanations, and says the
Socialists did it. Brother Wnnamaker,
however, flatly declares that the devil did
it, as Mr. Harrison declared four years
ago that the Lord did it. The one fact
on which everybody setms to ngree, as
an exchange observes, is that it is "di l.''
The Illinois steel company proposes to
shut down its steel rail plant thi? wider
because of "the uncertainties of tariff
legislation.'' This is a protection falees
hood. Tbts company is in the eteel-rail
trust. This trust so completely controls
the market that it fixes the price of rails
without regard to the state of the mar
ket. All summer the ptice of steel rails
was held at $30 a ton, although there was
very little demand for them. The price
in England ws $20. This mill is to be
shut down because the other mills can
make all the rails that are needed. By
shutting down the expenses of operation
can be reduced . If the tariff was reduced
to S a ton from the p: event tax of
13-40, the difference between the cost of
production here and abroad would be en
tirely covered. The cheapening of the
price would also tend to increase the de
mand. The II inois people kno this
and know that if the tar ff is so reduced
they will go on making rails, although
they may no longer extort their former
Protectionism Must to."
The Chicago Herald is right. "Pro
tectionism must go.1' The Herald calls
attention to the fact that the democrats
who are aaost strenuous in their opposi
tion to the proposed extra session of
congress for the purpose of wiping out
Hc4inleyism are precisely the men vho
labored most strenuously to inject a tar
iff straddle into the Chicago platform last
June. "The free traders," says the Her
ald, "promptly acd vigorously asserted
themselves at that critical moment of the
party's history, and it is prob'.ble that
when the time arrives for decisive action
on the extra session suljict they wil
again make it plain that protectionism is
dead in the democratic party and can no
longer masquerade in its councils under
the name of 'conservatism' or any other
The significance of the action of the
Chicago convention upon this question
cannot, with safety, be ignored or belit
tled by democratic leaders. The Chicago
convention "meant business" when bv a
Tote of more than two-thirds it rejected
the equivocal tariff resolutions reported
by the platform committee and substi
tuted therefor a ringing denunciation of
republican protection as "robbery," at d
Of the McKinley law as "the crowning
atrocity of class legislation." The battle
was fought upon these lines. The dem
ocratic press in every state, democratic
candidates atd speakers everywhere,
fearlessly exposed the iniquities of tic
xUnlejiam and pledged the democratic
party to wipe it from the statute books if
given the power. The democratic cam
paign was bold and aggressive from be
ginning to end. As the Herald says:
At no stage of the campaign just
past was political cowardice found a wise
policy, free traders ana rrce irsae
arguments were wonderfully potent in
the con teat. In every district where the
candidates and their aids waged war
upon tariff thievery from the orly logical
and impregnable ground of absolute com
mercial freedom the protectionists were
vanquished at the polls. The voters
who have thus had their eyes opened to
the tariff villainy are in no mood to be
trifled with. To them the old sophistry

Experiences of a Dustman.
Although a dustman mijrht fairly lie
supposed to hare no exper:ences worth
speaking of, we do occasional!; come across
something out of the common.
For instance, only a few w oks ago, my
mate and I there are two f us to each
cart received an order from the foreman
to go at once to ft certain address which
happened to be on our Thursday's round.
We there discovered that a vei-y important
paper had been lost or mislaid, and as some
idea had got about that it might have
been thrown into the dust bin we were
questioned as to the possibility of finding it
where our load on that partici lar occasiou
had been carted.
As lurk would have it, we found the
document. We had made an arrangement
my mate and I to take two sacks with
ns on our rounds, and while he looked after
old envelopes, letters and white paper of
all sorts, I collected the rags, bones, boots
and other refuse likely to br ng us in a
few coppers. AVe found the missing paper
in one of our sacks stored up t be sent to
the paper mills, and were rewarded with a
Of course sometimes we don't find the
articles we get asked for we should be
smart men if we did and we o:'ten get the
blame for finding and keeping lost articles
after they have been inquired for. Inter

Forbearance tlie Golden Rule.
Doubtless in everyday English horn
life there is an absence of thut courtesy
which goes far to prevent jars, and make
home life smooth and pleasant. The man
who takes off his hat to his wife, who
hands her a chair, and who always speaks
courteously to her, sets an example that
she and her children and Ler servants un
consciously follow. But some men think
it silly to be polite to their wives, and on
the other side, wives think they may nag
for ever, like Mrs. Caudle, at n husband.
Try a few society phrases, frii mis, now
and again, and see if you have not fewer
jars in your homes.
I maintain that women hold men in the
hollows of their hands. That is, if the
right woman has to manage the l ight man.
When two antagonistic natures set sail in j
the same boat, ami one wants t sail and
the other wishes to row, there is great
danger of capsize, anil only the wise for
bearance of one or both can avert, trouble.
But forbearance tiiier ir later brings its
reward, and the two pull togerher in a
harmony that -roves mo:c at.'rei able even
than getting one's own way. I.on ioulady.

Attar of Roses.
In trade the rose is very valuable, as the
attars of India and Persia sell at a very
high price, and there are large districts of
rose gardens in which men and w men are
employed the harvest months being
March and April. In Turkey also rose
farming is largely carried on, an 1 a very
fine attar is got from the rose grown in
Cashmere. Even rosewater is a luxury
which is by no means to be despised as to
price, but the attar of roses is immensely
costly, and it takes an enormous number
of flowers to distill even a few drops.
The attar is said to have been first dis
covered by the favorite wife of Jehan Jeer,
through whose garden ran a canal of rose
water, on the surface of which the begum
found a few drops of the precious attar or
oil floating. Detroit Free Press.
Wire Used for Pins.
Perhaps as striking a figure as can be
adduced in relation to wire is its consump
tion in the pinmaking industry. With
but few exceptions, all pins are ma le from
brass wire, and the daily production of
pins in Great Britain is placed by compe
tent authorities at 50,000,000, of which Bir
mingham supplies about three-fourths.
How this stupendous output is cot sumed
affords matter of no small wondtrment,
and when the proverbial trifling value of
each individual pin is further borne in
mind the interest in this branch of the
wire industry will be still furthtr aug
mented. Chambers' Journal.
