Tho Chicago Tribune publishes a let?

published in Portsmouth, O., and was
known as Tim Scioto Tribune. Com?
menting ou this, Tho Tribune soys:
"The writer unquestionably makes out

named for Rienzi, Bulwer'fl hero, tho

in 1841. Nor was it seen by Edward J.
Ryan when ho established Tho Weekly
Tribune, in Chicago in 1880. It is only
fair, however, to say that Mr. Hamilton
first applied the Bnlwer name tu an
American weekly paper. Mr. Greeley id
entitled to tho credit of first, apply ing it
to a daily, semiweekly and weekly pa?
per, which caused hundreds of others to
use the same title, though it is also true
that Mr. Ryuu used it first in Chicago
and in any Htnto went of Ohio and for
two years before Mr, Greeley employed
it in New York,

Fight yenr own battles, my young
friends, for in this way will you ii.se, to
the grand conviction that honor is to tio
preferred to life. The craven hearted
never understand this. Their timidity
causes them to shrink from exposure to
pain, und to them tho most sacred of all
duties is to take care of their precious)
persons. If they run behind their moth?
ers' unions whenever there is danger or
whenever it is imagined, and if they
put their big brothers perpetually be?
tween themselves and assailants they
will probably not be too nice on tho sub?
ject of integrity in future years.
Youth of today, a new century will
bo yours tomorrow. In a fow more years
its light, that shall fall on our graves,
will shine on your upward und onward
path. But if you would be equal to its
opportunities and rewards get rid of
your timidity now. Ann yourselves
with courage and strike down tho evils
and foes that aro ambushed in your
souls. Spare not yourselves. See that
treason lurks not in tho citadel. Then
array your resources, the strength of
your intellect, tho vigor of your will

and closely belted by a bund which runs
