"Wc arc printing nn occwrfoiml
letter from Elder Webb, wlio re
counts with observant eye ami ready
hand the HceiieH he behold and the
Incidents that befell hhn on his way
from Falem to Indianapolis. The
prohlH are holding their national
convention in that city, and Uro.
Webb Is a delegate. Ills jottings by
the way arc hastily written and
loowly thrown together; but they
nro pIenHnt reaillng bccnue he
takes acheery view of life, and they
are profitable because they evince
large oxx.'rienrc in afliilrs and a
Iltiimnaglng among hiiiio old
jMijers In ii desk drawer lately we
came across a visiting card, bearing
the name, "J. W. Webb, pastor
Christian church, Bnlem." At the
bottom of the card this was printed:
The man whom the Statesman
(Bee editorial, June 15th, 1887,)
holds up to public hcom as "Not
only an enemy to our laws, to our
government, to our liberty, but an
uneiny to Christianity, and to our
society, mid all democratl; insti
tutions." Can It bo possible that our brisk
and busy neighbor and friend the
man with an open hand and a
cheerful greeting for all, ran bo so
dangerous n character? Unless thus
admonished, wo should have taken
him for a useful citizen, n man of
ntogrcsslve Ideas, with push and
vim to help tlio community along,
pure hi morals and a blameless ser
vant of Clod. Jn his Issue to-day,
our brother (iilll raises his voice
against detraction. Past services,
ho says, arc no atonement for slan
der. An honest record will not
palliate robbery. Does he not stand
condemned by his own teaching?
Has he not been guilty
of what Hamlet ioIrits
out as a cardinal sin, "mis
naming Clod's creatures?" Where
in Is our excellent fellow townsman
a foo to society, and to our demo
cratic Institutions? These bo serious
charges, and should not bo alleged
unless the public safety requires
such arraignment. Hut the .States
man editor know ho was learlng
false witness against his neighbor
when ho printed such a screed, and
his readers know that tlio victim of
this assault was unspotted before
These "treacherous stabs," to bor
row our nelghbor'8 phrase, this
elmniotor assassination spring from
a isdltleal ovmiglto of hate. Ifo Is
heady, IntcmpcniU1, narrow in his
sympathies, Intolerant. Ko docs
not U'loiig to the present nil em
bracing ago. Ho should bo with the
church Imnilsltors, and his weaions

column, who will in the solemn
hour of midnight excommunicato

and caudle, Is not tit to counsel n
party. Ills reason Is astray. Hols
seized with fronsty, mnl the leech

Cmt thou not mlnlMi'rtoit mlml iIIkwim.
This Is tho only chitiltable view
wo tin take of his ailment. Tho
jHiwerof ronsonlng, If ho has It, ho
does not use. Tho milk of human
kindness Is curdled Into hate. Wo
hit vo mure than once reproved him
for his tvmly and unstinted abuio,
and applauding readers have said,

PaIng a neighbor's spacious door
yard the other day, we noticed hhn
directing some workmen In the erec
tion of a circular staging round a
massive fir tree. The dofegtlve car
pentering arrested our attention,
braces and supports boiag entirely
lacking. We iaused and looked on
awhile, and then suggested the pos
sibility of a collape. Our noighbor
explained his purpose. "Levita
tion," he said, (Icvis, light) "Is as
great a mechanical force in nature
as gravitation. Smoke ascends
through the atmosphere, vegetation
mounts upward. See this tree, ICO
feet high, Is that not !n controlling
force that can lift this Immense
growth Into the heavens? Moun
tains arc thrown up In vast ranges,
and the whole created system, tra
versing space and suspended on
nothing, Is an evidence thatlcvita
tion is the one great force."
Then coming down to tho business
before hint, he said: "I am building
this staging on the correct scientific
principle. As the tendency in mat
ter Is to liy up and sustain itself in
mid air, I want no props or supports
to this structure. The natural law
that holds this tree upright will sus
tain my platform."
We sighed as we left this poor fel
low. Like the Ajwstlo Paul, much
learning had made him mad. Yet
his lunacy was no worse than that
ot the Statesman editor, who fancies
a political party can be sustained
without the force of public Benti
ment, and that an election can be
won without votes. Both may be
ingenious mid well meaning men,
but their heads are not level.
Tjik Statesman quotes Thomas
Mooro to the confusion of this edi
tor, lint ho missed the proper pas
sago for quotation. This pleasing
bard tells of a French king being
troubled with insurrection among
his subjects, and ho used his army
as extinguishers. Hut the extin
guishers caught fire, that Is, the
troops took part with the insurgents,
as French soldiers are very apt to
do, mid then the monarch was in
dire jierploxlty to find a way to put
out tho extinguishers. Tho States
man editor is yelling out "for u
tongue" to curse somebody, but tho
story of Balaam and Balak Is re
peated. Tho king called on the
prophet to curse his enemies, and
three times he blessed them. By
the same token, hearty commenda
tion comes to this writer from all
sides. Cursing Is out of date.
Tilt: blessed patter of rain drops
tills tho ears with music as wo write
these lines. Tho heavens have with
held their riches for awhile, tho sun
and the wind have sucked the moist
ure from the earth, and vegetation
lias been siiU'erlug. The grain Holds
that vero whiter killed have been
replanted, and a drouth of any in
tensity ottld have Kt'it fatal to
tlicM? tender plants. But with the
humid airs blowing from tho sea
mist, and tho treasure-laden clouds
passing landward, the early rains
never fall to descend and tho latter
rains visit us In their season. Tho
fears of tlo farmero are rellevod.and
tho replenished earth Joins In the
general gladness. Surely our lines
have fallen In pleasant places.
