Friday. November 2S. 1890. FIRE PROTECTION AGAIN. Pursuant to the desire expressed by a score of the leading property owners of the village some two months ago, we have taken the trouble to correspond as to the best and cheapest means of sup plying this aefect in the community. It seemed to be the general impression from what we heard that if the right place could be found a tire extinguish ing outfit could be purchased at second hand which would suit our purpose. In our endeavor we have kept this continually in view; and think that we have found out and can present to the public an offer which cannot but be the very best that the village could do. We were informed that the Champion engine of the state at St. Louis is now idle owing to a late addition of the Holly water works system to the city. "We looked up the record of this engine and found that even up to the last time it was used it had invariably defeated steam engines in casting water. After communicating with John T. Xoble, the Chief of the city lire-department, we learned that the engine could be bought at a very low figure. Since the gentleman also deals in hose-carriages and hose he offered to complete the outlit. He would furnish a new hose-carriage, 500 feet of new hose suitable for the engine, two nozzles and the engine ready for use for S525. This is without doubt the cheapest otter that can be found anywhere for a good article. The engine is warranted to be in good running order and to give satisfaction. The gentleman with whom we nave corresponded is thoroughly responsible and conlidence can be put in his word. That the whole arrangement can be obtained so easily and cheaply should be a matter of congratulation. The price is almost paltry in comparison with tho loss it might well bo supposed it would guard us against. With a school-building worth 810,000, and such a great number of beautiful residences, nearly all of which are frame, and a street of stores which are all connected in the rear at least by frame buildings, it seems it would not be necessary to urge the peo ple to this measure. We have also numerous industries located here, any one of which wo could ill afford to bo robbed of for the want of some means of fire extinction. As a matter of pride it would seem thr.t we should possess some such an institution, jlut v. -t that to' so great an extent as owing l.t me lact mat ir otner towns in ouv im mediate vicinity have a lire-protection it will have a tendency to attract enter prises away from us to those villa-.; it; which there can be some assuran -j of not being wiped out by a lire in ciu - one should occur within 20 ) or 300 yard So sm ill an amount as 8023 is hardly to be considered in comparison with the ad vantage to be derived. If it were levied by a special tax it would hardly be felt. 'There is no doubt but here is an en terprise, whose ultimate inlluence will be hardly less far-ivaching (although in a business way) in comparison wit h the .amount of money invested. Factories, iSbopg, and dwelling-houses could then be built with assurance. It would show that there was a desire for permanent advancement in the village. Wo com mend this proposition to tho people of the village for their consideration: and hope they will prove as energetic in this case as they have hitherto in their enterprise for the public good. POLITICS AND CORRUPTION. Some time ago a circular letter wa3 sent out to prominent men throughout tho county, asking their opinion as to whether corruption had become a nec essary accompaniment to apolitical ca reer. The universal answer was that it need not be; but as to whether it was or not at present, these seemed to be a vast difference of opinion. They gen erally decided as they had been success ful or frustrated in t heir political aspi rations. They appeared either pessi mistic or optimistic. However it is an acknowledged fact that we have more corrupt politicians in this country than there are in any other. We are inclin ed to believe that it is because we have more politics. We do not believe that the American character is more point ed with corruption than any other. Jlut notwithstanding our belief that corrupt poloticians are not unusually thick in this country, we .are thoroughly persuaded that corruption in jwlotirs is altogether too common. It is too of ten the case that a man considers that he has really two consciences, an every day and Sunday conscience, and apolit ical conscience. Men of boasted verac ity often take pride in telling of smart tricks in politics. No one was sinned against. At least no one could com plain. . There is no part of tho deca- logue which forbids a man telling a political lie or bribing a voter. So it is done with a smiling countenance. These "political sinners" are not confin ed to either party. We assert it is no excuse for corruption because it may bo by a Republican. However good we might consider the cause we believe we could never take refuge behind the dry old maxim "the end will justify tho means". Neither is corruption excus able because a Democrat practices it. We boldly denounce foul play in our own party and expect others to do the same. Hut there is another thing we dare assert. The Republican party can pre sent a list of leaders whose fame is irre proachable; some men who have never dabbled in the mire of politics. There are Iteid, McKlnley, Wanamaker, Bla ine, Harrison and a host besides. On the other hand, however devoted to an honest purpose the rank and file of the Democratic party may be they can show no such a list of leaders, save in the south which is practically outside of the question. There is the "old Ro man",Thuravm. He Is a noble speci men of the man, but he could not be a leader over Cleveland. As to the latter we keep silent. We think of no others It is therefore with right that tho He publican party claims to be an honest party comparatively and to work tor honest men. Thoughts of a Day, Who will doubt now that Peter once picked up a fish while wadincr through a little stream down there in Asia Mi nor: and taking out of its mouth a piece of gold wherewith to pay the tribute money. Here is a man ricrht over in Lexington; a real live man, who purchased a real white-fish, and upon cleaning it tound a five-dollar bill within it: the recrular Uncle Sam article. Now, there be possibilities. and possibilities. This man is no prophet as we are informed. lie might have had previously some doubt of I'eter s legerdemain. His name is Dr. I). C. O'Jirien and he lived in an age of mu ii boasted "realism ot "material ism," etc. We never believe aucht but what we can see: to see with our eyes. ro see with the mind is of small im port, only "see". See the exterior of things; a showy semblance. What a blessing to be a realist. To carp at realty wnen an that is desired is that some palpable hull may be visible. A realty which is not real, but merely mases a snow ot being real. The soph istry of the profession makes little dif ference. It is an excellent plea for conceiteu Humanity, to indulge itself. Egotism may have lull sway here. "I believe nothing I cannot see." That Peter picked up a fish and took out a coin from its trembling gills, is a fable. What loonsii credulity these mor tals screamed. Hut here is a man who has picked a five-dollar bill, with Uncle Sam s stamp on it, right out of a poor nsh8 belly. "A mere accident with no connection with the subject at issue, just a remarkable co-incidence." A strange world this if all things go by chance or co-incidence. The plea for realization in this aare is but the climax of egotism. Let people talk it until they run against the true reality, that which alone lias being. The man that falls upon this rock is crushed. Tho days of heroism have not passed. The human race can hardly be said to be degenerating. As noble cases of fortitude are found today as ever or namented a page of history, yes and even more magnanimous. Tim war rior's valor is hardly at par. Though we still have an admiration lor it; and love to point at times to those ennobl ing incidents of the late war, when Imys from the farm or the store, untrained in war save by its own rough schooling, performed acts of self-sacrifice which darken the luster time has given to the Roman's fame. It was not to face a man in a hand to hand contest with an equal chance of life. It was to face a rain of shot whose every one held with in it a death-sting. I tut there are other cases of fortitude more remarkable and more credible m that t!iey are envelop ed with no clangor of magnificence, but are the uninspiring result of a quiet but firm resolve. Little Matilda Oresch, of Detroit, but ten years old. while work ing in a mill had her whole scalp torti off. The only chance for her recovery was that human flesh should be grafted over the bruise. The family was in poor circumstances. Who would sub mit to the painful operation for the sake of a life. Hrave little Emma her sister, but twelve years old, soon decid ed. She walked up to (Jraco Hospital and offered her side to the surgeon's knife to save the life of her sister." The operation was painful. A piece of akin as large as her hand had to be cut from the quivering flesh, and while still at tached tlnv had to bo bound together until vitality can be imparted to tho in grafted llesh. It will be fully live days beforo they can be loosened i'rom their hands. During that time they cannot move a muscle. Jut then must come a second like operation; for one graft was not enough to cover the great wou nd. Still for all these loner days the lit tle martyrs suffer; not in their own quiet beds, but in a hospital cot sur rounded by strange faces. This is the true heroism, the true valor. This quiet unostentatious submission to un told pain! There will be no costly re ward. Only tho life of a sl3ter. If it is true, as many aver, that tho niillenium will come just ns soon as drunkenness shall be stopped, it surely cannot be far away. There was a drunken Californlan who was told by a hypnotizer that he could not drink anything containing alcohol. He seemed to get along beautifully until the season of mince-pie came around; and felt no desire for any kind of fire water. Hut when he tried to eat a piece of mince-pie (for he loved mince pie) it almost choked him. It is said that this will prove a big boon for the W. C. T. U. workers. They have just decided, moreover, at Detroit that ci der and ginger ale arc alcoholic; and must not be touched. Hirch beer also has been proven to be intoxicating; and litters are most dangerous and must be prohibited. The order has just es tablished on inebriate asylum down in (Jeorgianear a mineral spring, whose waters are said to "knock drunkenness silly." To say the least this most estimable order is degenerating greatly from tho high standard once set for it. It has lost its hold, to a largo extent of the essential and is making a doll of the ideal. To sympathize with any work which has avowed so noble a purposo is the inherent duty of every conscien tious person. Hut it is doubtful if it is the obligation of nny ono to support notions that are plainly fanatical. It has become too much the fashion to have the profession of n "crank". The appellation has lost the significance it might once have had. Jle strange and inconventlonal is all that is necessary. Get some notion into your head, it matters not whether it be founded on eternal truth or no. Uecome a liar, only do something to get fame.
