txmg years ago I.hmd by chance a thought
A thoughtful thought It was, as all agreed-
And when in its totality 'twas caught
I sat me down to frame it in a screed.
Now, brevity, men say, s the soul at wit.
And hence I sought la writing to be brief.
In four strong lines I miulo my fancy fit.
And Bent it out and came, alas! to griof.
For years tho unappreciated verse
Lay in my desk unheeded nay, forprot.
But yesterday I took that quatrain terse
And once more cast it in the Bmelting pot.
I wrote six hundred lines all fcatly rhymed.
And then an envoi holding sixty more.
The self same thought was there that once I'd
So that 'twas clear in seconds three or four,
Again I sent it forth. This time success
My efforts crowned, to my exceeding glee.
Yet was I saddened somewhat, I confess.
To note the public's love for quantity.
And when a reader wrote to me to say:
"Tkere's lots of stuff in that, iou've made
It made me wince to hear it put that way.
For as to ' stuff," the rhyme was full of it.

A Condemned Issue.
The great issue in the recent pres
idential canvass was made against
nrotection; and it was denounced on
1. It was declared in the demo
cratic platform to be unconstitii'
2. It was defined in tho same doc
ument as robbery, and it was de
scribed by tho democratic candidate
as stealing and pocket picking.
8. It was reprobated by a certain
class of thinkers as immoral and un-
4. It was condemned by a certaiu
class of thinkers as tmphilosophical.
5. It was attacked by doetrinar-
ies in twMitieal economy as the worst
ossible form of taxation.
6. It was criticised by the most
moderate of all its opponents as no
Now the enemies of protection won
the election. They have the presi

majority of the house of representa
tives; anil their duty is cltr, e;tsy.
Obvious. They should abolish pro
tection; and if their theories are
sound, they will confer a great bless
ing n the country in doing so.
If protection is unconstitutional,
we would get rid of it-t if it be rob
bery, we should get rid of it; if it be
immoral, v o should get rid of it: if
it be unphilosophical, we liould gef
rid of it; if it be vicious tuxatin, we
should get rid of it; if it be unneces
sary, we should got rid of it. If the

as a system embodying any or all of
these "evils, then tho canvass of 192
was a huge lie.
ATKIP TO -EUROPE.
Kapliacl and Garri .
Of the faithfulness to nature of Iianhaol's
drawing, the following anecdote is a strong
testimony: A party, anioni; whom were
West and Garrick, were dining with the
Earl of Exeter at Burleigh House. The
conversation turned on Hampton court
palace. The cartoons leiiis noticed, Gar
rick, addressing himself to Mr. West, said,
"These cartoons are spoken of as the first
works of art in the world, yet I have often
passed through the gallery without being
much impressed by them." West expressed
his surprise that Garrick had not had his
attention attracted by some principal beau
ty or figure.
Garrick asked what figure was particular
ly calculated to produce such an effect.
Elymas was instanced. "Ah!" replied
Garrick, "I now recollect I was struck with
this figure, but did not think it quite in
character. This man was an attendant at
the court of a Itoman governor, and as
versed In abstruse subjects could be no
vulgar fellow, yet he stands with his feet
Straight forward in the manner of a clown.
Why ' ".a not Raphael make him in his dis
tref , extend his arms like a gentleman while
The company, highly interested in the
conversation, united in requesting Garrick
to personate the sorcerer as he would on
the Btage. He consented, and by the time
be was in the middle of the room appeared
the exact counterpart of Raphael's design.
West softly approached him and desired
him not to alter his position, but to throw
off his blindness and survey himself. "I
am Raphael's Elymas! I am Raphael's
Elymas!" he exclaimed, to the great de
light of Lord Exeter and his guests. Tem
The question of "cuts" in the columns of
the daily newspnpers, if not exactly a burn
ing one, 'excites more animated comment
than many of more importance. It h:is
been settled in favor of their use now by
every considerable morning paper in Yew
York, and the report reaches us that an
"art plant" has liven arranged for the most
conservative journal in that most conserv
ative city, Philadelphia. In the calmer at
mosphere of weekly journalism the prob
lem has long since Ix-en solved by the adop
tion of the apparently simple principle
that "illustrations" should illustrate.
There is no more reason why the render
should not receive accurate information or
pleasing or satisfying impressions through
the fruits of the engraver's art than there
is why he should not be given, in legiMe
type, the printed matter that is suited to
his needs and tastes.
That the business of printing pictures,
whether once or seven times or thirty times
a month, may be conducted in a manner to
make the judicious grieve, or even swear,
is something of which the general readur
does not need to lie informed. He cannot
pass a railroad station without having it
forced on his weary and wounded mind.
But no general business practice is to lie
adjudged by its abuses alone or condemned
on account of them. The one thing that
the last half century of publishing in this
and in other countries has established very
clearly is that good pictorial work justifies
itself wherever it can be achieved, and with
this solid fact to go upon the timid or over
sensitive or desperate critic of bad pictorial
work may wait with patience for its disap
pearance. Harper's Weekly.

Praise for the Scott Medical Insti

Rev. M. A. Nordstrom says: !
am a clergyman residing at j ood
hull. 111., and have frequently
thought I would have to resign un
charge. The cause of my trouble
was catarrh, and that in its worst
form, as I have been so informed by
noted specialists in Europe and
America. I grow very weak, had
severe headache, and spots would ap
pear before my eves, mucus dropped
continually into my throat, and.
passing into my stomach, caused dis
tressing pain. 1 became deaf m

TAKE TREATMENT NOW!
Time and again the physicians of
tho Scott Medical Institute have ad
vised patients in desperate stages of
catarrhal trouble to wait until sum
mer before taking treatment. Time
and ag:in they have urged the neces
sity of taking treatment while the
weather was favorable to a euro.
Now is that time. Those who suf
fer from catarrh should take advan
tage of all the influences that operate
now in favor of a cure. They should
not put off treatment until next win
