Kellow-Citizins : Wo wbo address you wero appointed a committee for tbis purpose by an Inilopendont Con vention of liepublicans assembled lor the purpose ol putting in nomination a suitable person as candidate for Con gress in opposition to James A. Gar Held. Tbe causes wbicb impelled tbe call- ins ol that convention und inspired its action are set forth in tbo resolutions by it adontod and printed herewith. lo tbe indictment contained in those resolutions and tbo evidonce submitted in support thereof we respectfully call your attention and ask your candid consideration. W e bavo no Krievanoc. Wo never sought lavors at Mr. Garfield's hands and have no personal quarrel with him. On t'uo contrary we bavo boon among his warmest political friends and sup porters and now only attack his acts and conduct in public life and tbo char acter be has Ihorcby attained. It is easier to lloat with tbe tido than to row against it and we regret the necessity that compels us to de nounce him. It is Iktinit that as true mou wo should seek tbo cause and remedy ior tnis state 01 ruin ana wo look not far nor long. Corruption in office and want of wisdom in legislation loom up betore us. We roviow with pride our party history and achieve ments, but we now so fraud in binh places eating at its vitals. Its Kovenue ottioers are lound stealing and dividing wun wnisa-y rings, its Secretaries sell poet tradursbips. Its Congressmen raiso their own salaries and make tbcm retroactive ; take groat foes lor argu ment on pavement jobs before boards of their own creation, and pocket the dividendsof greatfrauds liko the Credit Mobllicr. Corruption rides in 81,000 l.andauloU, purchased at Government exponso, and Congressmen build pal aces at the Capitol whilo tho pcoplo toil ana sweat under tbeir burdons tbey forget that thoy aro but the serv ants ol the nation and act as if they were its owners seeking to wring from it the greatest possible number of dol lars lor tbeir own base purposes. ibe .Republican party nas done much to purify itself within itself. Its V hisky King Kovenue onicers aro con victed and imprisonod, Belknap ia do posed and impoachod and only escapes conviction by a technicality.

"Uli wnat a tall wb thore my countrymen." liebnkod, shorn of char acter lor truth and integrity, all that is noble in manbood, almost defeated, he stands a Bad and blackened monu ment of avarice Jind greed. By tho arts ol orator and demagogue, of wbicb ha is a consummate master, ho is striving and strutri?linff and mav postpone the day of his linaldoom, but bo bears upon bis front the writing on the wall, "mene, nxene, t ekel upharsm." " V hom tbo Gods would destroy thoy first make mad." Forgetting his duty to his country and constituents, in his baste to serve his bond bolding masters, on tbe 13th of July 1876, ho committed himself to tho delenso ot that great fraud upon the people, tbo demonetisation of the silver dollar and donouncod its restor ation aa a "swindle on so vast a scale as to mako the achievement illustri ous." That speech so weak in its logic and so damning in its political herosios and so ruinous to tbo high pretentions to statomansbipof its author is suppressed by tho Kcpublican editois of nil dis trict and is only to bo lound in tbo Con gressional Record. Holding postoflioes and placos of emolument at bis will tbey dare to raise their voices only in bis praise. li the Kcpublican party would sur vive it must strike from its rolls the last dishonored name and select only honest, true and bravo men to fill Its high places. Flaming oratory upon the horrors of Andersonvillo and Libby, and tho dis ordered condition of the Kouth are a poor compensation for want of Integ rity. Tha fools wbo believs that another great rebellion or payment of tbe Kubcl debt aro Imminont, are only found in tho poslofflces and lunalio asy lums. The people know better, and that cry of tbe demagogue to arouse their fears that bt may got tboir votes ought to be of no avail. G. N. Tittle, P. IloiWORTII. It. U. IIlNB, of Lake county, J. A.

(Oaostal Report. Tbs Republicans ol the Nineteenth Congressional District ol Ohio opposed to the return of James A. Garfield tft Congress, met in convention at Warren, Ohio, .September T, 1H76, and orfranlr.ed by electing Dr.C. W. Knsign, CLEARFIELD, of Lake, lor Chairman, and L. D. Brown, of Portago, and George K, Paine, of Lake. Secretaries'. On motion. G. N. Tattle and J. B. Burrows, of Lake ; B. F. Porry, of Ashtabula ; L. D. Brown, of Portage, and C. O. Crary, of Lako, were chosen a Committoeon Kesom lions, ana ii.ji Uine. Wm. K. Hulott, P. Bosworth J. 8. Casement, B. F. Perry, and It. M. Murray, wero appointed a Committee on Conference for Representative. Tbe Committee on Resolutions re ported the following which wore nnani- monslv adontod : Whenever in a country like ours, governed by tho people through great political parties, a body of its citizens attachod to a political party teel con. strained from any cause to enter their protest against tbe action of such party and lake separate action in tho selec tion of a candidate for an important offioo, justice to tbomselves and a proper regard for the opinion of their fvllow-citizons require them to state distinctly and clearly the cause and purposo ol sucb action. Therefore, Be It by this Indopend out Convention of the Republicans of the Nineteenth Congressional District of Ohio, Resolved 1st That dishonesty, fraud and cor ruption have become so common, no torious and obvious in tho administra tion of our National Government as to be not only humiliating and disgrace ful in the estimation of every honest and intelligent citizen, but to imperil the prosperity of the people if not tbo stability of the Government itself. 2d. Resolved, That the deplorable oondition of the administration of our National Government is largely due to tbe election to ouice, and maintenance therein, of corrupt, dishonest and venal men. 3d. Resolved, That it is useless and hypocritical for any political party to declare lor rulorm in its piauorms, papers and publio addresses whilo it insists on returning to high official place and power men who bavo been notoriously connocted with tho very schomos of Iraud which rendered re form necessary and urgent ; that to send those to enact reform who thorn solves need reforming lo make them honest, is worso than sotting the blind to lead the blind. 4th. Resolved, Thatthero is no man to day officially connected with tho administration of our Motional Gov ernment against whom are justly pre ferred moro and graver charges of corruption than are publicly made and abundantly sustained against James A. Garfield, the present Representative of this Congressional district, and tbe nominee ot tue iicpuDiicau convention for re-election. Oth. Resolved, That since he first entered Congress to this da' there is scarcely an instance in which rings and monopolies have been arrayed against tbe interests of tbs peoplo, that be has been found active in speech or vote upon tbe sido of the latter, but in almoH every case baa boon tho ready champion in tho rings and mo nopolies. Oth. Resolved, That we especially charge him with venality and cow ardice in permitting Benjamin F. But- lor to attach the appropriation bill of 1H7S that ever-to-bo remembered in famy, the salary steal ; and in speak- rig and voting lor tnat moasure upon its final passago. And chargo him with corrupt disregard of the clearly expressed demand ot bis constituents tbat be should vote lor its repeal, and with evading said demand by voting lor tho Hutchinson amendmouU 7th. Resolved, That we further ar raign and denounce him for bis cor rupt connection with tbe Crodit Mo- A.- l!- 1-1... .1 :l- .1 r l. unier, tor uia laisei uviiibib tuoruui uu- foro bis constituents, for his perjured denial in Congress, for Iraud upon bis constituents incirculatingamong them a pamphlet purporting to set forth the finding of said oommittoe and tho evi dence against him, when in fnot, ma terial portions thereol wero omitted and garbled. nib. liesolvea, That we lurtber ar raign and charge bim with corrupt bribery in soiling his official influence as Chairman of Ibe Committoee on Appropriations for 15,000 to the Do Golyer Pavement Ring to aid-tbem in securing a oontract from the Board of Publio IV orksof tho DiBtrictol Colum bia : selling bis influence to aid said ring in imposing upon the people of said District a pavement which is al most worthless at a price three times its cost, as sworn to by one ol the contractors ; selling his influence to aid said ring In procuring a contract, to procure which it corruptly paid 107,000 "for influence ;" soiling bis in- uonce in a matter that involved no question of law, upon the shallow pre text mat no was acting aa a inwyor ; selling bis intiuonce iu a manner so pal pa bio and clear as to be lound and declared by an impartial and compe tent Court upon an insuo solemnly tried. Oth. Resolved, That wo arraign bim for tbo fraudulent manner in which bo attempted in bis spoocb delivered at Warren, on tbe 19th day of Sep tember, J H7 4, to shield himself Irom just censure in rocoiving the before- namod (5,01111, by falsely representing in said spoocb that the Congrossof tho United States were not responsible for tbe acts of said Board, nor the United ytatos liablo lor the dobts created thereby, when in truth and fact, aa bo thon well knew, the said Board of Publio Works and tbe officors ol said District woro bat agents and instru ments of Congress, and the United states was responsible tor thelndebtod ness bv them created. 10th. Resolved, That wo arraign dim for gross dorelictionof duty as a member ol Congress ia failing to bring to light and exposo tbe corruption and abuse in the salo of post-tradornhips, for which the late Secrotary Hoik nap was impoachod, when the same was brought tn hia knowlodrrs bv General Uajcen Id 1872, and can only account for it noon tbe supposition tbat bis manbood was debauched by the corruption funds, then by him just received, and in his own nurse. 1Kb. Resolved, Tbat the law of 1873, known as the act demonetizing silvor, was enacted in tbe Interest ol gold rings, bondholders and capitalists and against the interests of tax payers and without thoir advice and Knowl edge. That this act, by a single blow, has seriously crippled our power lo resume specio payments or pay our National debt in coin. That no suf ficient reason bas yet been given for tbis legislation, so dishonest and pal- pable in its discrimination In favor of tbs imall creditor class and capitalists and against the groat debtor class and the industrial interests of tbe country. That James A. Garfiold, during the last session ol (Jo-ogress was tbe con spicuous defender ol this crafty at tempt to sacrifice the interests of the people to bondholders and foreign capi talists. Tbat when it Is proposed to restore the old silvor dollar to the place PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN. PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 1880. it bad hold during our history as a Nation as a legal tonuor tor all dobts, nublio and privato, he denounced tho attempt as "a swindle on so grand a scalo as to make theacbiovementilluB trious" snd as "a scheme ol vast ras cality and colloasnl swindling." 12th. Resolved, That neither great ability and experience or eloquent partisan discussion of the dead issues of the lato war will excuse or jiislity oast dishonesty and corruption answer aa a guaranty of integrity and purity for tho future. ' 13th. Resolved, That believing the statomonts in the foregoing resolutions Bot forth we cannot, witDOui stullity ing our manhood and debasing our Bolf-rosnect, support at tho polls tho nominee of tha Republican Conven tion of tbis dislrict lor ro election, nor can wo, without surrendering our rights as electors and oitleci.a ait silently by and see a man so unwormy again sent to ropresont us in the National Legislature. That strong in the con viction of rinht we call upon the elect ors of this district, irrespective ol former or present party attachment, who desire honest government, to unite with us in an earnest, faithful effort to defeat tbe re-election ot General bar tlold and elect in his stead an honest anJ reliable man. Tho Conference Committee repotted by resolution as follows: Resolved, Tbatthiscommitteounsni mously recommend G on. J . H. Casement as a Buitablo candidate to bo supported and voted for at tho Congressional oloctlon. Tho report was accepted and adopted and Uen. J. S. Casement was unani mously nominated by acclamation as candiuuto for Representative to Con gress. Gen. Casement then came before the Convention and accepted tho nomi nation in a brief, pertinent speech, tbe action of tbo Convention and accept ances of tbe nominoo being grootod with eutbusiaslic applause.

Not many rears ago, it was hardly respectable to wear a beard ; but the beard movement, rosistod and ridiculed at first has conquered, and it grows more and more tho fashion to grow on Ibe lace as lull a covering ol bair as can bo coaxed out. " Tbe beard, tbe natural clothing of tho chin," says a very old English writer, "was In an cient time looked upon not a a troublo- some burden, but as a dignified orna ment ol npo manbood and old age. Our prosonl generation, however, cares nothing for "dignified ornament" in dress, but vory much for convonionco and utilitarianism. It sees in tho beard, and above all, in the moustache, a natural defence for the throat and face against tho cold, and equally iu warm climates, a protection of those parts against excessive heat. Persons w bo wear moustaches aro said, on good authority, lo bo loss liable to toothache than ethers, and it is also said tlmt the teeth are loss apt to decay. Tho board and moustacho equalize tho tompora- ture to Ibe parts tboy cover with their protection. Tbo sappers and miners of the French army, chosen in part for tho size and beauty of their boards, enjoy an especial immunity against bronchitis and similar evils. It is ro tated that Walter Savage Landor was a great sufferer from sore throat for many years ol bis lilo but was cured by the surgeon of tho Grand Duke of Tuscany, who advised him to lot the board grow. " Ye shall not round the corners of your boads; neither shall tbou mar theeorncrsot tby beard, says the Scripture in Loviticus. In ancient times all men and gods woro beards. The glory and beauty of Jupiter's beard was dwelt on by Homer, wbon tbo fathor of gods and men is first brought into tho Iliad. Alexander tho Great first introduced shaving, saying that in his Asiatic wars tbe beards of his WBrrior " might oiler a handle to the enemy." It be came tho mark ol a fine gontloman to wear no board in Greece, and dandies even removed them by "sharp pitch plasters," as well as razors. Rome bogan lo shave about ono hundred and fitly years before the Christian ora. Scipio Africanus, the youngor, it is saiu was mo nrst Konmii gentleman ot nolo who shaved every day. Iu CV'sar'i timo, young gentlemen of fash ion woro a slight goatee, but the full beard wm only worn in mourning or in days of groat publio oelamity. dinar Augustus and XNoro wore close sliavod, but tho beard revivod again under later Kmporors.

Poor little Charlie Kosss bas been found again this timeout in Michigan. Tho story of tho discovery is told in a lottor received by Chief of Police Uivin, of Philadelphia, from Mrs. A. B. Pago, of Mondon, St, Joseph county, Michigan. The loiter is dated Juno 9th, and in it Mrs. Pago Bays : "I have for nearly a year past had a strong boliof that 1 had socn the missing Charlie Ross, and having again come across tbe samo person and a boy bearing a strong resemblance to a photograph 1 saw of Charlie Ross at the time be was first abducted, 1 will mako tho statement and give my reasons for thinking the boy might be Charlie Rons. About tho last of Au gust or first of September, 1879, a man came to -Norlliport, Michigan, and, Booming anxious to avoid public places, engaged board lor himsolf and son (as bo saiu) with a broltiorot mine. The man, 1 should think, was about forty years 01 age, woro Ins bair quito Ion and Burnside whiskers. Ills hair an whiskers are aro vory bluck ; be looked like an Italian, whilo the boy was quito light, boing a littlo freckled nair light brown and ralbor curly Tho man styled himself Professor Sehoonovor, and was ongagod while thoro in touching vocal music: taught children, took them as young as seven years old and hot over fourteen, and gave a concort with his class alter tbe term closed. Ho was very tyrannical to bis own child when alone, but very afloctionate to him before lolks, often scolding him sovoroly at night; was overheard telling hi 111 how much ho was doing to givo bim a musical edu cation and how littlo progress he was malting. J. no child seemed vory scum. tivo and olU'n cried and sobbed him self to sloop after tho fathor had bo scolded and ollcn threatened to kill him if bo did not learn fastor. After tho term of Iobsoos at Nortbport ho went around to country school houses and gave evening entertainments with the buy, singing comic, sentimental and socred songs. The boy sang second, Ihotutber played on any instrument bo oould borrow for tho evening. Thoy invariably traveled on foot wboncvor thoy could. Tbey woro at my house several times; culled lo seo sorao In dian relics wo had collected and asked if wo would sell them and wished mo to give them a copy of an Indian song 1 Bung for them ; said thoy would he glad lo get some Indian costumes and sing Indian at their entertainments, told ob thoy lived near tirand Rapids, Michigan. J una b, 18K0, 1 again met tbe parties hero at Meadow, Mich., a small coun try town of about fifteen hundred in habitants. Iho father camo boro look ing for a chance for a boy thirteen years old to deliver a temperance loo lure, which we attendod, and recog nized the same boy who bad spent about three months on Grand T ravers Bay that Summer and Fall, and tho child resembles Charlie Ross moro than cvor, wearing his hairlong and combed bohind his ears (his bair is quito curly,) and 1 was so impressed with the like ness to tbo photograph 1 bad seen 1 oould not koep tho thought from my mina it might be the lost child. Tbey came to this place on loot and went the same way. They told us they wore going to Yicksburg, nine miles north Irom hero, but did not go thcro, and I bavo not yet boon able to learn exactly whore thoy went I have boon minute In detail, bo you might judge whether it ia worth investigating. ror toe reiiablenessot my statement or responsibility of my word I can givo you as ruluronce or recommenda tion many of the first people of the State of Michigan, and will only say my nusDana nas been i'ostmastcr at Omens, Mich., fourteen years We are now residing at Jttondou.

Tbe lost boy's lather, Christ K. Ross, when quoslionod in regard to tho mat ter in his office, of Master Wardcn.w ith regard to the above lottor said he thought littloof it. There was a possi bility, of oonrse, that it might be the boy, but it was not probable. He had novor hoard of this caso before, lie boliovcd that it was not his child.

It would do her good to know that sho bad bolped : she could rest happier think ing of the poor families she hsd saved from hunger and death. Tbo priest received bor money with moistoncd eyes.

One of tbo most attractive exhibits at the Permanent F.xhibition is that of silk culture, and owing to the efl'orts ol Iho management to popularizo the introduction of Ibo silk worm among American people generally Ibis exhibit bocoinoi ouo of the most instructive of the 1,600 yet remaining Irom tho Cen tennial. The decrease of the silk crop in F.urope will stimulate its culture in this country and a few facts in con nection with tbis important industry may prove of intorost. The silk erop in Europe in 1878 amounted to 7,320.000 pounds j in 1879 it fell on to 2,510,200 pounds, scarcely more than one-third the quantity of tho preced ing year. Whilo there has boon a lessoned production of raw silk in Europo there has been an increased consumption of it in the United States, and as tho production of silk goods bas increased in this country their im portation bas decreased, as lbs follow ing statoment attests : In 1873 there wore 147 firms iu this country employing 11.713 operatives, who produced silk goods of tbo value of $10,894,87-1. In 1878 there woro 213 firms, employing 18,017 operatives. who produced $20,593,103 worth of silk goods. In 1873 we imported Bilk goods to tho value ot $24,379,322 and in 1870 our importation of silk goods loll otl to $21,192.80. Our increase in homo production woa $G,G(I8,2S9 and our docreaBO in importations during ido period named was J,18u,tMU. Unr ing tho year 187C the manufacturers of silk golds in this country usod 1, 144,800 pounds of raw silk, of which 10,000 pounds only wero rsisod in America, including Mexico and Brazil. During tho same year, 1870, the Chinese Knipiro produced 23.232,000 pound ol raw silk, valued at C'J2,'J.a, 0i)0. Tho world's supply ot raw Bilk for 1870 was 55,903,000 pounds, valued at $207,653,400, ol which the value of, tbo raw silk produced in America was only iuo,oou. The raw silk of China is worth $4 per pound ; that produced in the United States is worth $0 per pound. For tbo raw silk used in this country by the two hundred firms ongagod in the manufacture ot silk goods more than (5,000,000 are annually sent out of tbo country. This ought lo bo stopped, and one of the many good things the management of tho Perma nent Exhibition Company is engaged in is to Btop it by teaching Iho boys and girls ol this country that ono of Ibe most protitablo and agreeable di versions from labor that they can en joy is the culture of silk, by supplying them with eggs and giving thorn all tho information requisite for the suc cessful culture ot this valuable pro duction. A lew TMr. mm .TnHrrA lnlth area employed by tho Massachusetts Legis lature to cxamino that report upon tbe culturoof silk in the Now England Slates, and in his exhaustive report Bays that ho found almost every fumily in Windham county, Connecticut, that bad small children engaged in tbe cul ture of silk, raising ten, twenty, fifty and ono hundred pounds per annum. -Mr. Lilly, ol tbo JSonotucli Bilk Lorn- lany, says tbat many lamilies raised 38 pounds each. The value ot this raw Bilk was $0 per pound. Tbe care ot Bilk worms is no moro trouble than that of a canary bird or a lap dog. It is in every sonse as pleasurablo and being much more protitablo, it ought to supplant tbo dog at least. Ibo Women s Silk Culture Associa tion of the United Slates having start ed a silk school at the Permanent Ex hibition, aro prepared in this grout school for teaching nsoful industries (0 learn persons tho art ol raising Bilk worms, reding tho silk from the co coons, and other matters porlainingto silk culture. Lvcry boy and girl upon whose fathor'a farm or lot is a whito, or smooth loaved purplo mulborry, or osago orange ti eo, ought lo bo a grower of Bilk, first lor the purpose of putting money in their pockets and second to stop tho annual flow of millions ol dollars Irom this country to l'.urope tor tho purchase ol raw silk. The sulo ot Bilk worms' eggs, as shown in it recent publication by the Franklin Instiluto of Philadelphia, is an important industry. During the years 1874, 1875, 1870 and 1877, $0, 000,000 worth ot eggs arrived at San Francisco for each of the years ststod, from Yokohama, Japan, intended to bo shipped by tho Pacific Railroad to New York, thence by steamer to Havre, Franco. Jl is predicted that in less than ton yoars wo will bo doings largo busi ness in supplying Francs with Bilk worms raised by Iho boys and gills of this country. I htladelphut limn. "A WIUTED sepulchre: Bunk failures have caused moro real distress, during the past year, than all the wrongs perpetrated on society by burglars and horse-thieves combined. A New Jersey case is the last one cited by tbo Philadelphia 7Vmr aa follows : This time it is in Newark, Now Jersey, at tho intersection of ibo two principal streets or that busy city. Tbo First National Bank did business in a showy snow-while building, erected at an expense equal to half the amountof its capital. That is to say, ol tho capital it was supposed to havo. That capital was a purely nominal affair ot an imaginary three hundred thousand dollars. Oacothccpital had a real existence, and thore was a time wbon it was figured up as high as half a million. But the figuring of this capi tal made little difference. The direct ors might as well bavo figured it at five millions or five conts, as long as the cashier was allowed to finger it as much as he pleased. This bank is a curiosity worth em balming in some museum of metropoli tan finance, provided enough ol its re mains can bo found to embalm, It is like the rind ol a choese, tbe insido ot which chcoso bos boon eaten out by rats. Such a chcoso rind may hold together for a while and present quito a respectable appearance, especially if a fow kind boartcd and skillful rats slyly combino to shore it up in its weakest places and to drop a littlo borrowed or stolen cheese into the places wbonce too much of the gonn ine and proper choose bas been exca vated. The owneis of sucb a ohoeso may take prido in its external appear ance, just as tbe directors and officers ol this whited sepulchre donbtlesa did. As thoy daily pasaed tbe corner on which stands tbe showy building they would look at it and congratulate thomselvos on their happiness in pos sessing the stock of such a bank and in boing othorwise identified with it And well they might be happy in own ing shares, for as lately aa April thoso TEEMS $2 per annum in Advance . NEW SERIES-V0L. 21, NO. 20. shares paid a four por cent, dividend to their holders. But It seems that a system of what is commonly known at "kiting" was kept up, and that was what kept the bunk np. If rats were kiting they would do it by carrying to night a lot of cheese from one spot to another spot where cheese wus more evidently needed to stop tip a Lolo or lo cover a weak place. Then to-morrow night they would lifl dial particular lol til t-hecso to another spot where tbe need seemed lo be more urgent. In liko manner did the officials who did tho banking fur this bank kite from bank to bank with their epbcmoral drafts making good one day the uobciency ol tho day be lore, only to keep tbo tottering busi ness on its shaky logs until tbe inevita bio day of final doom. Tbis day was when a ISew iork bank reluseu to continue to assist in the flying of kites for tbe suffering and sadly weakenod institution. All of a sudden the funny old perrons who were supposed to have been managing this bank were struck as if by unexpected thunderbolts. The President, who said he did not know anything about the business, kindly stepped out and tacked a notice on the door, saying that tho bank would not bo open to-day. -then bo retired to express surprise lo and with the other officials at tho rottenness so suddenly revealed. Tho directors all looked blank. The large stockholders came in and helped tho praiseworthy effort. They bad all reposed confidence in somebody else. Conlidcnco is a de lightful thing, and to reposo it in any body is ovorBulovoly. Allthodiroctors. with one consent, said tbat they knew nothing at all about anything, and that the only persons who knew any thing about anything woro tho Cashier and the acting Cashier. Tho Cashier had gono to Europe, and the acting Cashier had rolirod from his scono oi action and had gono somowhore or other, nobody know where. Thcso directors are going to try to find out something. Ouo thing they havo found out, namely, that there are about twulvo hundred depositors, who aro going to hold a torchlight pro cession or something of the kind by way of lunorul service in honor of the whited sepulchre. They aro about to find out another thing, to wit, tbat bank directors who in April doeluro a four por cent, dividend on the stock ol a rotten bank become individually lia blo it tho bank tumbles to pieces in June. So let tho depositors be happy, for tho directors aro wealthy, and their experience will teach tbcm a valuable lesson, even it it bo a costly ono.

Under this caption somo Philadel phia boiiso-keeper bus furnished the editor of tbe Times onool "tbenobbiost" editorials we bavo read for a long time, Tbe writer strikes out in this stylo: "One of the cleverest and buppicxt fellows in the world is tho mechanic who, having been sent for to do some repairing, presents bimscll to perlorm the job. With smiles on bis fuco, tools in his kit and materials nndor bis arms or on his shoulders, he pleasantly takes possession of bouse, room, store, laetory or office where tbo repairs are to be effected. If there is anything more positively happy and soreno than ono of those men, it is two of them coming together. Jn this ease each one relieves tho loneliness of tho otbor. It might bo supposed that two persons could accomplish at least twice as much work ' as one. This is not always tbs case. Whatever is lost in actual work is moro than mado up in consultation. Con sultation is good in its way. To see two of theso men conferring with each other is to realize tho mighty influence ol Head work as compared with band work. Brain supersedes muscle, and muscle renll'ully waits in respectful bomago until brain bos done its sbure of tbe work. "In whatever branch ol industry the job oi repairs is to bo dono Iho jobbers consider it ol primal importance to rrfltke their appearance at the most inoppor tune time. If it is the kitchen range that needs mending tbo men who are to mend it suddenly sail in on wash-day morning when Ibe fire is at its hottest, or else on tho day of ironing when tho calorifiod flutirons are briskly flying over the whitened linen and cannot lor a moment be left to cool. We lot tbe firo go out just to oblige thoso men. Then tboy go out too, for tboy have for gotten some of their tools. No jobbing mechanic wus evor known to bring all bis loots at one trip. 1 bey do not lor- - got many tools. Sometimes It is the butchot, somolimos the shears or tbe nippers, aud again it is only the meas uring tap or loot-rule. In the latter instance it wore madness to offer them the measure wbicb happens to be in tbe house. It would not suit their purpose. It might not be correct. They mast have thoir own, and so thoy retire from the sccno of confusion and of disappoint ed hopes and aro gone until evening, when wo want to build up tbo fire for supper. Ihen tbey bring what wits needed, tour the range to pieces, force us to subsist on cold victuals, and again dopurt for some castings or patterns, or tongs, or almost any foolishness tbey can think of. They come back tor final action in the course of three days. Ifthcjobbors are carpenters thoy bring thoir measuring rulos, and lay line and plummet to each wall and angle and joint and window and door, as il tbey were employed to mako a survey ol tbe county. No carpenter since the days of tbe men wbo built Noah's ark ever brought his saw with him on bis first arrival. The amount of timo oonsumod by jobbing curponters in going after forgotten saws must amount in the aggrcgnto to tho equivalent of that consumed in building the Pyramids ol Cheops. Tbo patience of the plumber is proverbial. His strong point is to stay away for somo time after he is sent for. When he arrives it is to re ceive an avalanche of anathemas irom the distracted house-keeper. These roll off from him as rain-water Irom the feathers of a duck. The plumber can stand delay boiler than any other of the wbolo fraternity of operating me chanics. He laughs in bis sleeve at our inconvenience and wonders why wo should be annoyed by bio doing in Iwenty-soven visits what ws think he might have dono in two. Then thoro is his twin brother, the gas fitter. Of all the men who try the souli of people who havo repairing to be dono, and who mako such peoplo pine and pant for that patient self-possession which was the portion of Job, patriarch of the land of Vz, the gas filter crowns tbe list. Hap pily ho duos not come late in the even ing, when we are burning all our lights. Il is a wonder that be does not, just for tho sake ot testing our patience. It would bo such fun tor bim to turn off our light and leave us sitting in mid night gloom. Ho kindly consents, in stead of thus liming bis visit, to come in tho busiest hours of tbs day. II we have a committee meeting or a dinner party ora private conference or a wed ding, in comes that malevolent and mischievous repairer of fixtures. He will be with us, ho says, for the space of an hour, and will kindly dispatch business to our soul's great delight. First ho turns ofT tbe gas at tho meter. Then he unscrews a lew burners and brackets and a cbande''' or two. He will not annoy us ; not he. He only saturates our apartments with thespare carbureltod hydrogen let loose Irom tho pipes. His crowning joy is 10 go and cut somo pipe. While engaged on this errand he leaves his assistant to superintend affairs. In the course of the samo day be returns with the pipe, which he bas cut to tbe wrong length. Ho works and works along, and eoos several times more to cut some pipe, until we think ho has had time to cut Into inch bits every length ol pijto in town. 'And yet we cannot dospise these jobbers, nor can we afford to sneer at the joba they do. fsithlul and labori ous men thoy aro, and most of thoir work Is done conscientiously, it is hotter to be bothered for a day or two with the doings and devices of a gag. fitter than to sit in tho dark, or ruin the oyos with an inadequate light. Belter cat oold ham fur a week than have the kitchen rango to vex us for all time. Tbe jobbers are sent into tho world lo teach as patience and long suffering. Without them this world would be a monotonous wilder ness of woo. With Ihom ws have somebody to acold at, and wha tbey clear out we k now what a blessing it M to bo rid of thorn."
