In an able review of the usetol and
honorable course pursued by the
banks in maintaining credits and in
f piriajj confidence daring the present
panic the St. Louis Globe-Democrat
thinks we are apt to overlook the im
portance of banks as a part of the
ejstem of modern civilization. It is
not merely in exceptional situations,
but under all circumstances, that
they are valuable to us. They have
become indispensable. Their advan
tages reach to all classes and
touch every relation of society.
When the single fact is considered
that 95 per cent of all the vast
business of the country is transacted
with checks and drafts, we get a
vivid conception of the extensive
part that they play in our affairs.
They are the custodians of all the re
sources of trade in a sense; they
handle all our money for us, and save
us from mistakes in counting aad
from losses through counterfeits.
The amount of labor that they per
form for their customers gratuitous
ly in the ordinary course of events is
far more than we ever stop to think
about. They have thousands of pa
trons from whose deposits thev never
derive a cent of profit; and their ulti
mate dividends, all things consid
ered, are by no means excessive.
Their policy is one of friendliness
and generosity within proper bounds,
to all legitimate business enter
prises. They have more to gain,
putting the matter in the light of
pure selfishness, by helping men to
succeed than by conspiring to make
them fall. It is better for them to
have prosperity prevail in all
branches of trade, and their in
fluence is exerted to that end in a
persistent and aystematic manner.
The best business talent is engaged
in their management. Their phil
osophy is based upon integrity, and
their methods are a daily lesson inJ
he kind of morality that makes rep
utable and effective citizens.
Daty of Contnwi. ,
The New York World publishes in
its Tuesday issue a number of letters
from public men, in response to are
quest from that paper to give their
views as to what the Fifty-third con
gress will do. Among those w ho re
sponded is Hon. William M. Springer,
of Illinois. His letter is as follows:
To the Editor or the World: I
cannot predict what the Fifty-third
congress will do, but in my opinion
it ought to thoroughly revise the
tariff, placing raw materials on the
free list and reducing duties on other
articles to a revenue basis; to repeal
the Sherman act; to establish a just
and comprehensive financial policy
for the United States; to repeal the
odious features of the federal election
laws; to provide salaries for United
States attorneys, marshals and cir
cuit court commissioners, instead of
fees for their compensation ; to sub
mit a constitutional amendment fix
ing the presidential term at six years
and making the president ineligible
to re-election; to enact more efficient
measures for the suppression of
trusts or combinations to limit pro
duction and control prices; to pro
vide for the admission of Arizona,
New Mexico, Utah and Oklahoma
into the union as states; to revise
and simplify the pension laws; to
make economical but ample appro
priations for the public service and
for rivers and harbors, and to pass
some other measures of less import
ance. It is my opinion, further, that at
the extra session in August the pur
chase of silver bullion and the issue
of treasury notes thereon should be
suspended until congress should oth
erwise provide; and that the most
important committees should be ap
pointed and authorized to sit durintr
vacation. After a week or 10 davs
congress should be able to take a re
cess until about the middle of Octo
bor. J'y that time the ways and
means committee woubT be ready to
report to the house the tariff bill,
which ought to become a law by the
lirst day of January next. Some of
its provisions need not take effect un
til a later period, financial and oth
er legislation could be reported and
considered in the meantime, but the
tariff bill should be the first nreat
measure to be enacted into law.
Unyielding opposition should be
made to dishonest jobs and question
able schemes ol any kinu or charac
ter, ana to extravagant and nnneces
Bary appropriations of the public rev-
nues. lsetore the close of the fiscal
year, June 30, 1891, congress should
adjourn and submit its record to the
If sucb measures as I have indicat
ed are passed, the result of the elec
tions for membership of the Fifty,
fourth congress will not be in doubt.
EVILS OF FREE MEDICAL RELIEF.
Gratia BMdkU rtttaf tend to paarwiaa
la definite wars. Tb oat patients begin
by Getting phytic and presently get food,
ad tho system "lead tbem afterward
opeoly to solicit pscualary aid." This ritl
atlng affect U proved by the fact that dar
ts tas 49 years from 1830 to 1800 the In
orsaos to tae tan Smt ot hospital patients
bee bee five timer greater than tbe Increase
ot population, aod as there bee sot been
sore disease the t apttcattoo Uobriotis.
Moreover, the pcomise of advice for ooth
tng atteecu the ta seo spirited te the extent
that "tbe poor a.-e bow bring gradually
ousted eat of tbe consolting room by well
to do persae." Pi opto of several hundreds
a year, even p te thousand, apply as out
pattest, going la disguise, 20 per cent of
tbe oat petieou is one large hospital bar
ing "given false actresses" for the purpose
of concealing their Identity.
Swarming as pw.ienta Urns do, K results
that each gets bnt little attention, a miaate
being the average for each, sometimes be
tng diminished to 43 seconds. Thus those
for whom the grst is advice Is intended get
bat tittle. Often "itsslstance given ki merely
nominal' and Vrth a deception on tbe
public aad a fraud upon tbe poor. "
These gratuitous medical benefita. each
as they are, "are conferred ebiefly by the
members of tbe ur paid professional staffs"
of these charities. Some of them prescribe
at tbe rate of SIS alien U in 3 boars and 30
minutes a procesi sufficiently exhausting
for men already bitrd worked in their pri
vate practice and tufficiently dibhenrtening
to men with' litt.e private practice, who
thosgtve without payment aid which other
wise they would gt payment for very mnch
needed by them.
So that the 400.000 a year of tbe metro
politan hospitals, which, if tbe annual
value of tbe lands and buildings occupied
were added, wonld reach very nearly 1,000,
000, has largely tb effect of demoralizing
the patient, taking medical care from
those it was intent ed for and giving it to
those whom it was not, and obliging many
impecunious doctors and surgeons to work
hard for nothing.
These various experiences, then, fur
nished by socieths and institutions sup
ported by volunt&ty gifts and subscriptions
unite to show that whatever benefits flow
from them are accompanied by grave evils
evils sometimes jrater than the benefits.
They force on ns the truth that, be it com
pulsory or noncoDijiulsory, social machin
ery waxtes power iinJ works other effects
than those intended. Ia proportion as
beneficence operates indirectly instead of
directly it fails in i s end. Herbert Spencer
in Popular Science XConthly.
The Reading of Janvier's Poem.
An incident related by the late actor
Murdoch is very cl Jiracterlstic of Abraham
Lincoln. Few who lived through the war
have yet forgotten the poem of the "Sleep
ing Sentinel," which was written by Jan
vier in commemorttion of an act of clem
ency by Lincoln in pardoning a yoaag Ver
mont volunteer at the very moment when
he bad been led out to be shot for sleeping
at bis pout. The f rst public reading of this
poem by Mr. Murloch took place at the
White Mouse, the president, the poet and
a large assembly being presenf. Before
reading the verse aloud Mr. Murdoch pri
vately pointed out to Mr. Janvier a sliht
poetic license, whe-e he bad described the
arrival of tbe presi lent with the pardon as
being accompanied by the sounds of rolling
wheels whereas Uncoln bad ridden on
horseback to the p ace of execution.
Janvier thought it a matter of very
trifling consequence, and the reading pro
ceeded. At its close tbe president and
many of the party were in tears. Lincoln,
wiping the telltal 3 drops from bis cheeks,
said hastily in a smothered voice, "Very
touching, Mr. Janvier, but I did not go In
a coach." "Oh. well, Mr. Lincoln," said
Senator Foot of Vermont, "we all know
yon would have gr ne on foot if It bad been
necessary." "Yes, but the fact is I went
on horseback," Insisted Mr. Lincoln. Bos

the great, griping, old-fashioned pill.
Not only when you take it, but un
pleasant, from first to last, and it only
gives you a little temporary good.
The things to take its place are Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. One of these
at a dose will reg ulate the whole system
perfectly. They're tiny, sugar-coated
granules, scarcely larger than mustard
seeds. They act in Nature's own way.
No reaction afterward. Their help lattt
and they do permanent good. Consti

or Bilious Headiches, and all derange
ments of the live r, stomach, and bowels
are prevented, n lieved, and cured.
They're the ch utpest, for they're guar

Their Very Large
WHY THKV St CCKED.
The remakable success which the
Scott Medical Institute has achieved
in every department of its practice
has created a good deal of comment,
not only among the people who are
afflicted with chronic diseases, but
also among brother practition
ers and the question is often asked:
"What is the cause of this large
measure of success?" The answer
may be stated in a few words. In
the" first place the physicians of the
Scott Medical Institute are skilled
In the second place they give their
whole time to their patients and to
their profession. When they are not
in the consultation room in attend
ance upon their patients, they are
discussing the peculiar features of
individual cases, so that they may
be ready to apply tbe result of their
deliberations in the consulting room.
This is the whole secret of their
With them the science of medicine
is a constant growth, and every case
a special study. Not a point that

reason that thev succeed where others

nor inclination to enter into a con

be cured. Our advice is free and no
medicine is required in Your Case.
Attend strictly to your own busi
ness. You will yet succeed. No

own wood pile. The most alarming
symptom in your case is the green
