"Ah," said a leading republican tnend,
"we are getting down to democratic

poor rule that won't work both ways?
All through the last campaign we were
told a thousand and one limes that the
people from one end of the country to the
Other were rich and prosperous and hap
py. The republican party has given us
that information fr.tn the stump ano
through the press ao continually that we
would not of course dispute it The peo
ple who talk of the existence of poverty
are simply calamity boilers. Neverthe
less, once in a while little paragraphs
come out in the news columns of even re

It ii laid of an old woman wbo krpt a

And the o Id lady's financial lotic is
just sbout as sound as is President Har
rison e and Secretary Foster's, who alaim
that because our exports amount to mora
than our imports, therefore we ate doing
a prosperous business aod the balance of
trade is in our favor, which shows no
thing of the kind. Suppose a farmer
sells a cow for f 20 and buys a 2-vear old
steer for $15, of courxe he has $5 more
than he bad before he sold bis cow, but is
tbat any evidence that he is f 5 richer
t 'an he was? If he Bold his cow for jml
what she was worm and aid not psy any
more for tee steer than it was worth, of
course, as I see it, the transaction has
not saade him any richer or any poorer
But if the cow was worth $25 and the
steer was only worth $10. he is 910
poorer than he was before be sold hi
cow, although he has $5 more in bis
pocket. Just so with regard to our cx
ports and imports. If we have got for
our exports all that they were worth. tbat
if, all that they bad cost us, and have not
paid too much for our imports, then the
transaction would not mike us any
richer or any poorer. But if a high pro
tective tariff has compelled us to pay too
much for that which we have bought,
and the wheat we have sold has not
netted the farmer over 60 cents per
bushel, nor bis pork over $3 per hun
dred, then I say the balance of trade is
against m, as I see it, notwithstanding
we have sold more than we have bouebt;
or. in other words, if we have made a
fair profit upon our exports, and have
not paid too much for our imports, then
of course the baUnce of, trade wonld be
in our favor and not otherwise.

T"he Bonnme Game of Cheaa.
The Rurmette game seems to be rather a
heavy variety of chess, the peculiarity of
It being thnt a piiwn "queens" when it
strikes an imaginary diagonal line drawn
from the player's left hand corner to the
right hand corner in front of him his op
ponent's left hand corner. The pieces are
massed on the player's right hand, hut the
three privilegwl pHvrnu there are only
three allowd to "queen" can only
"queen" when the queen has been taken.
We should say here that no piece equiva
lent to our queen really cxiata in eastern
chess, the moxt powerful piece being equiv
alent to our rook, or castle.
In the Burmese game the privilege of
translation confers no higher rank on a
piece than that of "ehekoy" called queen
in European equivalence by virtue of its
being unique piece possessing scarcely
more power than a pawn. The usual move
of the piece called "queen" in all oriental
varieties of chess is one square diagonally,
and it is never one of the superior pieces.
