MAYORMediIl flattered Mayor Mc
Conochie in his inaugural address.
As a result the Union takes it for
granted that in all that he does Mr.
Mod ill must observe Mr. McConochie
as his perpetual model.
The fact that Mayor McConochie,
with the able and willing assistance
of the council, set a good example in
the matter of improvements does not
carrv the conviction that he set May

a general way.
In the house at Springtield yester
day the bill appropriating $4'X,O'0
for a western hospital for the insane
to be located somewhere west of the
Illinois river, was passed to the second
reading. A number of amendments
seeking to defeat the measure were
voted down, these amendments pro
viding for the enlargement of the
present hospitals, etc., and the out
look now for the additional asylum is
exceedingly bright. When the bill
passes, llock Island will be after the
location with both feet.

Mr. sprliieer Views.
The following is an editorial article
that appeared in a recent number of
the Washington, 1). C. Post:
In the opinion of the Hon. William
M. Spiinger, of Illinois, silver legis
lation is to cut no great figure in the
legislation of the next session of con
gress. It is the tariff question that
calls for early action. He admits,
however, that the export of gold is a
factor in the problem which has to be
considered in the arrangement of a
revenue tariff, and may involve diffi
culties of adjustment.
As one of the veteran leaders of
tariff reform, to the accomplishment
of which he has devoted years of stu
dious observation and active effort,
Mr. Springer's views are always'cn
titled to weight and are clearly ex
pressed. As long ago as 1871, in the general
assembly of Illinois, of which he was
at that time a member, Mr. Springer
offered the following resolution:
'That all systems of taxation for
protection and all class legislation
Undo John Berry was an eccentric
man with a large amount of common
sense. Two of Ills townsmen, who
had been lifelong friends, had a fall
ing out. Abram Green was going to
sue Benjamin Brown, while Brown
threatened to bring a countersuit
against Green, and the prospect was
good for a long string of lawsuits.
At this point friends interfered and
persuaded the two men to leave the
matter to Uncle John Berry.
The old man consented to act as
judge on two conditions. Neither of
the disputants should employ a law
yer, and they should promise to
abide by his decision.
To this they agreed, and Uncle
John drew up a bond which they
signed, a;reeing to pay him $200 if
they did not abide by his judgment.
After the ipors were duly exe
cuted Uncle John took the contest
ants into a room from which every
one else was excluded, and seating
himself at the end of a table told
Green to sit at his right facing
Brown, who sat on the opposite side
of the table.
Then he had Brown tell his story.
If Green tried to interrupt him, ho
was made to keep still. "When Mr.
Brown was done, Mr. Green told his
story, while Brown in turn was
obliged to remain silent.
"Have either of you anything
more to say:" asked the referee.
Neither of them spoke.
Uncle John was silent for a minute.
Then he held out a hand to eac h and
My decision is that each of you
pay me 50 cents and go home 50
cents apiece, go home and sy noth
ing more aliout this business. '
They both began to expostulate.
That was no way to settle the mat
ter, they declared. They wanted to
know which was right.
But Uncle John was firm.
"My decision is," he repeated,
"that each of you pay me 50 cents,
go home and say nothing more about
it, or else pay me $200. I have your
bond for that amount, and I know
you are good for it."
They paid the 50 cents, went home
and ever after were good friends.
What He Said.
The young man had been to call on
the girl the night before, and she was
expecting to hear something of espe
cial interest to her, but somehow,
though he talked a great deal, he did
not say those things she wanted to
hear most. The next morning her
mother, who also was somewhat in
terested, broached the subject.
"Mr. Henderson staid quite lato
last night, didn't he?" she asked.
"Yes, mamma, until 11 o'clock."
"He kept up a very active conver
sation, I should say, from what I
"Did he say anything?" the mother
""Well, he said something about
nothing I c ared to hear and nothing
about something I cared to hear,"
and she broke clown and wept from

A MONUMENT FOR THE SOLDIERS.
A monument for tbo soldiers!
And wbat will j-e build it of?
Can ye build It of marble or brass or bronze.
Outlasting the soldiers love?
Can ye glorify it with legends
As grand as their blood hath writ
From the Inmost shrine of this land of thine
To the outermost verge of it?
And the answer came: We would build it
Out of our hopes made sure.
And out of our purest prayers and tears.
And out of our faith secure.
We would build it out of the great white
Their death hath sanctified.
And the sculptured forms of tho men In
And their faces ere they died.
And what licroio figures
Can the sculptor carve in stone?
Can the marble breast bo made to bleed
And the marble lips to moan?
Con the marble brow be fevered?
And the marble eyes be graved
To look their lust as tho fias floats past
On the country they have eaved?
And the answer came: The figures
liall all be fair and brave.
And, as befitting, as pure and white
As the stars above their gravel
The marble lips and breast and brow
AVhcreon tho laurel lies.
Bequeath us right to guard the flight
Of the old flag in the skies!
A monument for the soldiers!
Built of a iHJople's lovo
And blazoned and decked and panoplied
AVith the hearts ye build it of!
And see that ye build it stately.
In pillar and niche and gate.
And high in pose as the souls of those
It wonld commemorate!

A Baltimore Endeavor society has

is to play what might be termed
Christian practical jokes. They do
the little things that nobody would
think of, but that please and astonish
everybody when they are done. They
make pleasant surprise calls on old
ladies. They unexpectedly get out

trouhled you all winter.
Why do the physicians of the Scott

ment? In reply we would say. We have
been o errun with business during
the winter. Numbers of cases for
consultation we havetidvised to wait
for warmer weather before commenc
ing treatment. Now is the best time
of the year. We do not say this sim
plv for the sake of making money
but because we can treat diseases of

dozens of patients who have to wait
until 1 p. m. to receive their treat

another treating room to our otlice
