The champion Mugwumper sat down by the gate, .... Btnging: ' Wool, onl free wool, oh? free wool, oh?" ...... Ho chanted It t-arly and chanted tt late, Free wool, oh I free wool, oh I tree wool, oh ! Up the hi 1 in the White House it happened Just then , ,' . Ohio's staunch governor talked with our Fen. . . . . "Ah!

And this Janus freetrader self-aty led 'man of fate' If ay his humble pie eat from a little tin With In's'prectoua John Bull, ohl John Bull, ohl" The summer i passing and autumn comes Boon the polls will of voters be foil, oh 1 From ocean to ocean that November morn No cry will be heard of ' Free Wool," ohl Farmer, statesman and workman,all hearts are agreed. That "Protection and Tariff" mean welfare indeed, . And to Ben in the White House will join their "God speed." So great is his pull, oh I his pall, ohl -Poor old Pennoyer ia in a peck of trouble since the democratic party has deserted him. This ia really too bad that the fingers should rebel against tbe body in this way. The simplicity of republican institutions has never been more fittingly exemplified than when an ex-president of the United State Rutherford B. Hayes marched on foot in tbe great parade, in the ranks of the Ohio post of which he was an honored member. Many think he and not Mr. Mor ton should have reviewed the parade, not because he was not a soldier and Gen. Hayes was and a Kalian t one, too. . Herb are some figures that should put a stop forever to the waitings of tbe calamityites who claim that farm ers are getting poorer. Of every 100 farms in tbe state of Maine, 8 on an average are hired, 20 are owned under incumbrance and 72 are owned with out incumbrance. Of every 100 homes not situated on farms, on the average 52 are hired, 10 are owned un der incumbrance and 38 without in cumbrance. If the farmers are getting . poorer, these figures don't betray it. Is his argument for an income tax, Governor Pennoyer aays : "Under the tariff, men pay to the -government a tax on the food they eat, the clothes they wear, and the implements they use in their labor; and this being tbe case, it follows that a poor laboring man, not worth a dollar in the world, who lives by tbe labor of his bands, and who has a wife and family of eight children, paj s ten times as much for tbe support of the federal govern ment as bis rich bachelor neighbor, who is worth a million dollars." This sounds mathematical and logical, but is the height of absurdity and contra ry to tbe common experience of all. Tbe poor man with his family of ten spends at the very maximum but $1,000 per year. The millionaire, then, if the poor man pays tea times as much as he, must live on $100 a year. On tbe contrary, he spends $10,000 a year, or ten times as much as tbe poor man and his family of ten, and as the things he buys are of the class that pay the highest tariff rates, as he wears imported cloth, smokes imported ci gars, drinks imported wine and uses other luxuries highly taxed, a greater proportion of his $10,000 a year goes to the government than of the $1,000 spent by the poor man. The argu ment amounts to nothing, and was only advanced as a specious and dem agogic effort to make the poor man believe that he is paying all tbe reve ' nue raised by tariff. It is a fair index to tbe tone and character of the whole address. Do you wear shirtingf It is taxed 6 cents a yard says the freetrader. You can buy it for 5 cents a yard says the merchant. Do you use blankets? They are taxed 95 cents or 105 per cent. They can be purchased for 90 cents. Do you use lead pencils? Tnoy are tariff taxed bu cents or 103 percent ; but you can buy them for 75 cents per gross. If you use saw files, they are tariff taxed 75 cents or 150 percent, yet the selling price is 48 cents. If you wear flannel shirts, they are tariff taxed 80 cents or 116 percent, yet you can buy that shirt at retail for 69 cents. If you smoke cigars, they are tariff taxed $3.09 or 206 percent, but are retailed for $1 60 per box. Smoking tobacco is tariff taxed 10 cents or 125 percent, but the retail price of smoking tobacco is about 8 cents. Isu't it strange how cheap articles are sold under the burdens of the McKinley tariff tax? But you must remember that' the tariff tax is on imported goods, and the prices at which these goods are sold apply to home productions that are protected by this tariff tax. Now the question arises, will you vote' tbe republican ticket and be protected or vote the democratic ticket and be the unprotected victims of the freetrade policy advocate by the loaders of the democratic party! You certainly are not so stupid sa to vole against your own interests. Amy voter who votes for the demo cratic ticket on the 8th of Novembor declare by that ballot thut he is opposed to protection of our homo in dustries against the harmful competi tion of the products of foreign pauper labor, and against reciprocal trade with those countries which offer up valuable commericiu) concessions in exchange, and against a sound cur rency system which makos every dot lar issued by the government the ud iu purchasing power of every otu r dollar in circulation. A vole fur the democratic candidates declares this protection to American institu tions, American enterprises and American working men to be an un constitutional fraud, denouces the reciprocity policy of the government which has already saved us milions of dollars a an arrant sham and de mands the restoration of tbe wildcat slate bank currency which years ago served to slurmingly complicate com mercial transactions and inflict great financial loss upon the innocent holders of worthless or depreciated bank notes. A vote for the republi can ticket means protection to home institutions and home industries; aud the sustenance of a crrency on a sound financial basis Which do you choose protection, or free trade with a questionable currency? Remember, self protection is the first law of nature, and we believe, or at least hope, you are intelligent enough to vote for self-protection and will vole the republican ticket on tbe 8th of November. A Cholera scare. A reported outbreak of cholera at Helmetta, N. J , created much excite ment in that vicinity. Investigation showed that the disease was not chol era but a violent dysentery, which is almost as severe and dangerous as cholera. Mr. Walter Willard, a prom' inent merchant of Jameeburg, two miles from Helmetta, says Chamber Iain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrnnea Remedy has given great satisfaction in the most severe cases of dyseutery. It is certainly one of the best things ever made. For sale by Edwin Ross, druggist. OBSERVE COLUMBUS DAY. In view of the fact that President Harrison has issued a proclamation declaring the 21st of Oct. a national holiday, to be observed in commemora tion of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America and in as much as the permanency, emcency and in tegrity of our institutions are based upon tbe inlelegence and patriotism of our people, and furthermore, that the common schools being, as they are, the nurseries of the rising genera tion and the great dispensaries of free education, which is the bestjguarantce of that broad, liberal minded and pat riotic citizenship which is the boast and glory of our institutions, I think it fit and proper that the schools of Columbia county rightly observe this glorious day, to fitingly celebrate with appropriate exercises, this transcen dent event which stands boldly out io history like a noted tower on a hilL I deem this a splendid opportunity to inspire tbe growth of our schools with a deeper and more fervent love for their country and to more forcibly and lastingly impress upon them the supreority of our institutions; to more fully recommend to their con sideration the unparalleled advantage of being American citizens. In consideration of these facts I recommend that the teachers of Col umbia county, in conjunction with their schools and patrons, observe tbis day with suitable exercises. Pro grams have been sent to each of the teachers which when supplemented will make a program both interest ing and instructive. Where it is poa siable let two or more schools assemble at the most convenient place and thereby enhance the interest of the occasion. Let tbe patrons lend their co-operation and if they can do no more they can iavor the occasion with .. . i their presence ana thereby give a quickening impulse to patriotism in our schools. T. J.

The agent submitted the substance to the usual tests and called the lady's attention to the pre- nonce of alum, ammonia and various Other alleged ingredients, which could ho distinguished by the peculiar odor, the residuum, etc The lady of course saw all these unmistakable signs of so called impurities, and allowed the agent full swing to expand upon the merits of her own cooking powder. The agent finally inquired of the lady what brand of baking powder she had been - experimenting with. "That baking powder," replied tbe lady, the same that you have been cracking up so high." The agent turned all colors, and beat a hasty retreat. Our infot mant has not been bothered with baking powder agents since. To much at a BWk.

Curious Deep Sea Preavets, Fishes have been found, it is said, three miles below tbe surface of ths ocean, and when a specialty has been made of deep sea soundings, as in tne voy age of II. M. a Challenger and others, the verr greatest ocean depths have been found to be very populous. Plant, on the ooutrary, do not live in tne very deepest waters, and it Is supposed, therefore, that the rteep sea aniuiau either prey upon each other or get their food from dead organisms ana pianis which sink to the bottom. The phosphorescent fishes, those whioh light up the waves about tboin so brilliantly, are found as far as a mils below the surface. Most of the fishes found hi what are called the "abyssal tones" have only rudimentary eyos. Some have only long feelers, but those enablo them to grope their way about at the bottom of tbo sea. On the other band, there are sevoral "abyssal" spe cies of fishes which have eyes so large that they are wholly out of proportion to tbe rest of their bodies. These are suDDoeed to follow their phosphores cent brethren, which act as beacon lights in the inaxy depths of old Nep tune's trackless wastes. The light of some of these ocean lampposts, whioh have been brought to the surface by deep-sea dredgers, are so bright that during the brief space the animal survives It Is easy to read by the light, even though the night be one of" Egyptian darkness.
