K.lwia Bulletin.
* * At the ticket office one must
be in line and await their turn, but we
had to do this, even ingoing to church,
Sunday morning. Bright and early, as
we thought, we started to hear a ser
mon from Moody, at the Haymarkct,
but in speaking of it to a friend, he
kindly took pity on our ignorance, and
said there was no possible show of our
even getting standing room, if we
were not there by eight o'clock. As
he preached at eleven, we became sud
denly disenchanted and went to hear
the Rev. Dr. Hyde. Sunday evening
we tried to hear Moody again, at
Plymouth church, and though we were
two hours early, yet there was only
toe room to be found, and I though,
as I looked down on the vast sea of
heads of the contrast to the little
country church where the grey-haired
deacon looks around and seeing
the empty pews, sighs and " wishes the
neighbors had all heard Bro. Jones
was going to preach for them that
The attractions in the city vied in
interest with the World's Fair. We
went to see Libby Prison, Panorama of
the Chicago fire, Masonic Temple
(viewed the city from its observatory,
three hundred and eighty feet high,)
Board of Trade building, Palmer
House, Woman's Temple, Auditorium,
Gunther'a'aud Barry's e&ndy palaces,
(which are a bewildering maze of mir
rors, cut-glass and silver.) Marshall
Field & Co. and several other large
We were fortunate enough to ob
tain seats to see " America," and to
hear Sol Smith Russell, in "Pleasant
Valley." I was so charmed; I wished
to go again but we could secure no
seats for three weeks.
At the Fair I think I admired most,
the statuary and the buildings. They
are so magnificent and of such won
derful proportions that I think the
ingenuity of man will be taxed greatly
to find something new after this. The
Columbia Fountain, by MacMonnies,
is considered the most beautiful piece
of work ever made. It represents
Columbia enthroned on a triumphal
B ar ge, guided by Time, heralded by
Fame and rowed by eight standing
figures; representing on one side the
Arts, on the other side, Science, In
dustry, Agriculture and Commerce.
The circular base is 150 feet in diame
ter, and on each side are columns 50
feet high, the largest over 20 feet. The
illustrations were beautiful indeed.
The powerful search lights being
thrown on far distant buildings, with
a radiance so soft it looked like the
smile of angels.
The grounds alone are worth going
to eee, and each State building should
claim the next attention of her sons
and daughters. I was very proud of
dear old Missouri and Washington
State buildings. Washington boasts
of having the largest flag staff on the
grounds (215 feet) has also donated
forty-stven other flag-staffs. Her
building is 140x220 feet and is built
to show her great natural products,
timber, granite and ore. Her display
in the Fisheries' and Forestry build
ings are very fine. I saw a lovely
wreath (3x4 feet) made of native shells
and seeds from Long Beach. Also
the veritable Elk which tarried with
us awhile in Kalama last autumn.
The skeleton of the whale, I saw in
the Washington exhibit, in the Manu
facturers' Building, and flew to read
the name of the Texidermist. Sure
enough, there it was—" Skeleton of
Whale, stranded on Long Beach,
Wash. Prepared by Prof. J. Hudson."
I have not felt so near to Kalama
since I left, as when reading that
card. It seemed I must turn and
speak to Annie and Addie' who
were with me that morning in
Kalama. The largest piece of coal
ever taken in bulk front any mine,
was in the Washington exhibit, also
skeleton of Mammoth, thirteen feet
high, from Spokane. The native
woods of Washington—slabs, split and
varnished, made a fine showing.
In other exhibits, among antique
things, there were pianos one hundred
years old, dolls two hundred years old,
and manuscripts over four hundred
years, one being the original permit
given to Columbus by the King of
Spain to discover America—if he
could. This is, in the Convent of La
Rapidia, in a heavy glass case, guard
ed by a policeman. Above it on a
card are the words: " Every Ameri
can should lift his hat as he stands
before this manuscript." All this ex
hibit of those times was too heavy and
terrible for me to enjoy. I rushed on
to the three caravels, Santa Maria.
Pinta, Nina. In the Santa Maria I
stood silently before an old sheet-iron
stove, believing implicitly that Colum
bus had fresh biscuits from that oven
every morning of his voyage, when
my meditations were rudely jostled
by a man saying: "All modern,
Madam, very modern. Columbus
never ate pancakes off that stove."
This was too much. Hot biscuits had
been bad enough, but pancakes dis
solved my meditations entirely.
I turned my attention to Agricul
ture for awliile, feeling prouder of
America every step I took. This is
one of the most striking structure of
the Fair, being 500x800 feet, with
annex 300x500, costing $1)18,000.
Next, 1 went to the Krupp Gun ex
hibit, and as I stood before this
wonderful 120 ton gun, and the balls
it uses, the thought came to me, that
if civilized men had made these things,
I hoped they would be too intelligent
to ever use them. With these to fight
with, it would not be war, but carnage
and murder.
In the Leather exhibit there was a
lovely pair of shoes valued at $175.
This building was one of great interest.
I was very much interested in a log
[cabin home of ninety years ago.
Everything was there as if Grandma
had jsut left it, even the low churn at
the fireplace, with the old chair by it.
An old man standing by me with
superb diamonds on his shirt-front
and little finger said: "Yes, it was
all just so, niuety years ago. I can
remember the bread Grandmother
used to bake in just such an oven."
From here I entered the U. S. Indian
School, and while standing in awe be
fore a war shirt to which was attached
an hundred scalps, I listened to his
dcscendent play the " Mocking-Bird"
on a Sleinway piano. Truly we are a
generous race. The Ethnographical
and Anthropological Buildings are
full l of studies in old pottery and
curios gathered from every part of the
earth. The veritable stone from the
Pipe-stone quarry of the " Peace-pipe"
made famous in Longfellow's " Hia
watha," was to be seen here. The
Cliff Dwellers' exhibit was also a great
Taking the Intra-mural It. It. here,
we left the south portion and went to
the Woman's Building. Woman may
well be proud that her ingenuity,
talents and presistent energy has
accomplished what is shown here.
Sarah Bernhardl's sculpture is ex
quisitely beautiful. The wondrously
web-like laces and the heavy gold and
silver embroidery of Germany and
Russia stand out prominent. There
was a beautiful Russian circular from
Montana, made from the breast
feathers of the Chinese Pheasant and
lined with silk which a lady was two
years in making.
The second story is devoted to the
many benevolent societies, begun and
carried on by woman, and the roof
garden (covered) to a fine restaurant;
also scores of tables where visitors
may eat their lunch, for many take
advantage of the reasonable rates for
eatables just outside the Fair grounds.
These delicious lunches are put up in
the prettiest little boxes and every
other man carries one.
The Children's Building shows
everything needful for their advance
ment mentally and physically. The
Day Nursery is a great boon to woman,
as little babies and children are kept
in safety all day for twenty-five cents-
People are not allowed in the nursery
but they throng before the glas9 parti
tion to get a glimpse of the babies in
their _snowy cribs. Everything is
there, for their enjoyment and is very
fine. There are three rooms for dil
ferent ages. Kindergarten schools are
carried pn in different parts of the
building. A very novel souvenir I saw
here was an exquisitely bound volume
Mother Goose Rhymes, illustrated
with pictures of Chicago children.
From here I went to the Illinois
State building. This exhibit aloue,
surpassed the exposition of many of
the large cities, and the parlors
surpass any thing on the grounds,
unless it be New York. One reason,
I think, for the Illinois State building
being so grand, is that she has
duplicated her displays of other depart
ments in her own building.
Pennsylvania has a fine building.
In the main entrance is the old
Liberty Bell, with two policemen guard
ing it. The crack in it extends over
half way up. It is in a massive frame
work with brass railing surmounted
with brass globes with the names of
the original States inscribed thereon.
In the Louisiana building there was
a room called the Evangeline room.
All things woven, crocheted and spun,
being done by Evangeline's people.
Some of them were very beautiful.
Here I saw Zachariah Taylor's grip
sack carried in the Mexican War, and
some of the oldest ware made in the
We spent one day in the Art Gal
lery and might very pleasantly and
profitably have spent a week, for it is
a continuous succession of historical
beauty, sculpture and art. The
statuary alone is worth coming across
the Rockies to see.
The Virginia building is one of
great interest to every patriotic Amer
ican as is an exact duplicate of Wash
ington's home At Mt. Vernon; not
only in construction but in the ar
rangement of the furnishings with old
silver loaned by old Virginia families.
In all departments the State is well
In the Western States, Wisconsin
stands very prominent. Her building
is beautiful. The brown stone, red
brick, cedar shingles, exquisite mo
saics and hard wood finishings, are all
her own. The chief motive power for
the machinery for the Exposition is
supplied by a gigantic engine, fur
nished free by a company in Milwaukee
and is a part of the exhibit; also the
wonderful Monolith, 170 feet high,
"Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Lull Where They May."
cut from a solid block of stone, which
is to remain as an attraction to the
grounds. The exhibit of this State
cost $300,000.
I did not spend much time on the
Battle-ship, Illinois, as the arrange
ment ami furnishings are much like
the Baltimore and Charleston. The
Naval drills, daily attracted thousands.
The life saving exhibition was of ex
ceeding interest to me, as it showed
how perfect is our system for the sav
ing of life from drowning. The swim
mer lays on his back and brings in
four men at oncc.
We were there on the " Odd Fellow s
Days" aud these exercises took much
of our time. There was an exceeding
ly interesting programme of speaking
and music carried out each day in the
Music Hall, by the Sisters of Kebeeca.
The Horticultural building is one of
the most enchanting on the grounds.
There are flowers from every clime,
and so improved, one scarcely recog
nizes old friends in their new dress.
There is a mountain of ferns and palms
reaching to the dome, and underneath
is the Crystnl Cave, lined with crystal
from the Mammoth Cave of South
Dakota. A Night Blooming Cereus
exhibition, during July and August
was much talked of. California has a
magnificent display here. Her tower
of oranges, liberty bell of lemons and
an immense display of wines are
worthy of note. The vine which forms
the natural drapery of the building is
Cobea Scandens. an old favorite with
llower lovers. The " Battle of Flow
ers" is the most beautiful of the many
pieces of sculpture. Wooded Island
chiefly belongs to this building and
deserves special mention as a beauti
ful retreat. There are acres of lovely
Howers and here and there are de
lightful, little, summer houses, where
one may rest amid sweetest perfume.
At one end is the Japanese Village,
an exhibit of tbree buildings called the
Hooden, which will remain as a gift
from the Japanese Government. At
the Southern end is the Davy Crockott
Hunter's cabin, which is head quarters
for Hunters.
We next turned our attention to
the Transportation building, which is
UGOx2SG feet and cost f370,000. The
Golden Door is its special feature, con
sisting of a number of receding arches,
overlaid with gold leaf. The exhibit
is one grand object lesson—the essence
of History confined to a page, that
"He who runs may read." Looking
at the crude manner of travel in the
earliest days ought to make us well
satisfied with ourselves to-day, for
most of the good inventions are Amer
ican. I saw the carry-all used by
James K. Polk during his administra
tion ; also the original Grace Darling
boat and the model of the war-ship
Victoria. This last was in white
enamel and silver, fifteen feet long
and is said to be the finest marine
model ever made, costing $52,000.
Exhibition of the finest sleigh ever
made was bought by an American of
Philadelphia. The Canadian Pacific
R. It. had a magnificent display, the
train is said to be the finest in exist
ence. I saw the first R. R. engine
ever made; also the largest and latest
—and oh my! the difference.
Next we visited the Mining and
Electricity buildings; admired the
statute of Franklin, then across North
Cannl to the great Manufactures' and
Liberal Art's Building. This is the
largest building of the kind ever
erected; Length, 1,087 feet, width, 787
feet, cost $1,500,000. There were five
car loads of nails used in the floor.
There are 44 acres of floor space,
and one thousand cottages, 25x50 feet,
could be placed in it. There are so
many things to see in here, that my
tired brain could not retain them all.
Something which attracted, aud held
my attention for awhile was an Orches
trion, exactly like the one built for
Patti at Craigy-nos, Castle. It is, to
use Mark Twain's phraseology," Built
like a pipe organ without the pipes."
It is twenty feet high, and twelve feet
wide. The card attached, said it would
play at 3 o'clock. I determined not
to miss that treat, but bless your heart
I couldn't find it any more. When
three o'clock came, I was at the other
end of the building, a full half mile
walk from there, but I bravely made
the effort, though I never saw the
Orchestrion again.
We saw the first Columbian coin,
the ten thousand dollar treasure
downed by Seakoff, Wymun & Bene
dict Co. This is in the 'beautiful
Remington Pavillion, in the Mfg.
Building, in a heavy glass case,
guarded by a policeman. It rests in a
case of cast brass with heaviest glass
door, together with affidavit of the
mint of its genuine right to the appel
lation of senior to all other Columbian
coins. Truly, we are sometimes made
to appreciate the value of a thing
whether we are patriotic enough to or
not. On the clock tower, 160 feet
high, in the center of the building, are
panels with the inscriptions of the
story of Columbus. The clock face is
7 feet in diameter and above it is a
chime of nine bells, which are con
stantly playing the most beautiful
The Peristyle surmouted by its
eighty-five allegorical figures, and the
Columbus Quadriga; the Statute of
Liberty and the Administration build
ing, are all so grandly beautiful, I
caught my breath with a little gasp to
think I was so insignificant.
Among the Foreign buildings, I
most admired France, Germany and
Great Britain. Germany's exhibit
consisted mainly of " Christ, and Him
Crucified," in paintiug, sculpture and
wood carving.
And now for the Mid-Way. I could
say ahout as much as I have already
written and then not tell the half. It
in itself, is equal to a trip around the
world, as the customs, habits and re
ligious of the different Nations of the
World are here shown. In the streets
of Cairo, we laughed heartily at our
younger sister Grace, in riding the
camel, but we fairly screamed when
lie told us its name, Ta. ro ra-ra-Boom
de-ay Chicago," as fast as he could
talk. One staid looking, old camel
bore the name of " Moses."
The intricate mazes of the Moorish
Palace greatly amused us. While in
here we saw the original guilotine by
which Marie Antoinette was beheaded.
The wax works and mystic chamber
are very fine. As becomes all true
Irish, we visited Aberdeen Castle and
bowed to the Blarney Stone. We
spent much time, enjoying the great
display of Oriental work, iu the Turk
ish Bazaar, and streets of Constanti
nople. In the Libbey Glass Works,
we saw the magnificent glass dress
presented to Princess Eulalia.
The entire Plaisance is one continu
ous uproar, the general invitation to
everything being music. A special
song raging just now, and vieing with
" After the Ball," on all musical in
struments, is " The Ferris Wheel,"
And the Ferris Wheel—Oh My! I
never felt how wicked I was until that
wonderful wheel carried me 250 feet
near the blue heavcus than I thought
I should be. It is simply the most
stupendous affair that America lias
yet devised for the pleasure of her
children, and if it (possibly) should be
eclipsed by the hanging balloon, which
foreigners are building, we will still be
ahead through Maxim's great air-ship.
Isn't it grand to think that our Coun
try and her sons and daughters are
the greatest on earthT
A Discomfited masher.

Three decidedly attractive girls got
on a Sixth avenue elevated train at
Forty-second street aud immediately
a score of masculine eyes were levelled
at them. The girls found seats to
gether and tried to appeir unconscious
and quite oblivious to the pronounced
advances for a flirtation from two
young swells who sat opposite. But
all their efforts to appear at ease were
unavailing. The young men persist
ed and the girls blushed and looked
uncomfortable. Finally one of the
girls opened a small sketch book on
her lap and then raising her eyes she
gazed straight at her admirer opposite.
He petted his moustache and smiled.
She made a few strokes with her pen
cil in the sketch book, but did not
smile. When she raised her eyes
again he realized that she was sketch
ing him. The other two girls watched
the progress of the sketch and giggled.
This, with the smiles of the other pas
sengers, was more thau the subject of
the sketch could endure. He crossed
and recrossed his legs, pulled his hat
down until it touched his nose, and at
last rushed desperately into the
next car. When he had gone the
girls closed the unsoiled pages of the
sketch book and laughingly threw
away the bit of pencil, which, when
picked up by another passenger,
proved to be quite devoid of lead.
"Whirring" Wilson.
Washington Po«t,
The elections bill debate has de
veloped more incidents this week than
usual. Champ Clark, of Missouri,
made the most effective talk on the
Democratic side. He had a pleasant
repartee with Wilson, of Washington,
over the appointment by the Presi
dent of Indian agents from Eastern
States to places in the West, in viola
tion, Mr. Wilson held, of the National
Democratic home rule plank. Wilson
has a voice which is best compared to
the remarks of a buzz saw arguing
with a hemlock log. Champ Clark
talks as if he had 5,000 Missourians
in front of him, all full of quinine, and
all, consequently, hard of hearing.
Higher and higher, rose Wilson's
voice, louder and louder swelled
Clark's response, and when Wil
son's voice couldn't get any higher
Clark had to stop to give the echoes
a chance to catch up with his conver
sation. Then said Clark to Wilson:
" You talk like the whirr of a ma
chine. I can't understand what you
Mr. Wilson—You do a great deal of
whirring yourself.

After Provision for the Widow—
Children Share Alike—Places Ex
ecution of Will in Other Hand*
to Prevent Dispute.
In the Supreme Court, last Friday,
Clerk Roberts read the will of the late
Alex. Farquhar. The value of the
estate will probably reach $50,000.
Mr. Farquhar, in his will, declares that
having in view the uncertainties of
life, aud " Reposing especial confi
dence in the integrity, ability and
faithfulness of A. H. Chambers, Robert
Frost and C. J. Lord, I hereby consti
tute and appoint them the executors
of this will, authorizing them to act
without bonds, and direct that they
carry out the provisions hereinafter
set out and further execute their
trust according to their best judg
"I direct that after my decease all
floating debts be first paid, and for
that purpose I hereby vest all the per
sonal property of which I may die
possessed, in my executors, and direct
that they dispose of such thereof as
may be necessary to pay all such debts
and the expenses of settling the estate,
such property to he disposed of in
such manner as they shall deem to be
to the best advantage.
"To my wife, Ellen M. Farquhar, I
give and bequeath the southwest quar
ter of block 47, of the city of Olympia;
that is to say, a piece of said block 120
feet on Adams street by 120 feet on
Eighth street, to have and to hold the
same free of all incumberances to her
self and her heirs and assigns forever.
And, whereas, by the death of my
former beloved wife, Jane McKay
Farquhar, a half interest vested in our
children hereinafter mentioned, I di
rect that my executors secure from
our said children or their heirs a
proper and sufficient ratification of
this before they pay or transfer to such
persons the bequest hereinafter made.
" I further fix upon my wife an
annuity equal to S3O per month from
the time of my death, to be paid
monthly, out of the rents and profits
from block 57 and the remainder of
block 47 of Olympia. For the pay
ment of said annuity, said premises,
with the improvements thereon, are
hereby charged, and same shall be
paid so long as she shall live and
remain unmarried, and until she shall
sell all, or some part of the real estate
above bequeathed to her—and there
after, said premises shall be free from
said charge.
" All the property of which I shall
die possessed, subject to the foregoing
provisions and bequest, I give and be
queath to my children Edward M.
Farquhar, Anne Allen, Mary Ebey
and to the children of my daughter
Julia Esmond, deceased, share and
share alike; the children of said Julia,
to hold by right of representation, and
not per stirpes. The title of said
premises shall vest in my executors,
and they shall distribute it to the said
devisees in such manner as they shall
think best.
" I believe, that placing the execu
tion of my will in the hands of
honorable, disinterested persons, will
prevent misunderstandings between
the different members of my family,
and preserve better feeling, but I desire,
nevertheless, that in all matters of
importance, my executors consult the
members of my family and carry out
their wishes in all things possible and
not inconsistent with this will."
In closing he specifically requests
that the following proceedings, and
none others; shall be had in the settle
ment of the estate, to-wit:
" The probate of this will, and the
issuance of letters testamentary; the
filing of an inventory, the appoint
ment of appraisers and an appraisal;
the filing of semi-annual and final
accounts; provided the court may, if
it shall become necessary, take such
charge of the estate as it shall deem
The attesting witnesses to the will
are Charles H. Ayer and C. M. Dial.
Farmer and Newspaper Ulan.
Washington National Tribune.
Many men think that newspaper
men are persistent, dunners. By why
of comparison let us suppose that a
farmer raises 1,000 bushels of wheat a
year, and sells this to 1,000 persons in
all parts ol the country, a great por
tion of them saying, " I will hand you
a dollar in a short time." The farmer
does not want to be small and says:
" All right." Soon the 1,000 bushels
are gone but he has nothing to show
for it, and he then realizes that he has
fooled away his whole crop and its
value to him is due in a thousand lit
tle driblets, consequently he is serious
ly embarrassed in his business, be
cause the debtors, each owing him $2,
treat it as a small matter and think it
would not help much. Continue this
kind of business year in and year out
as the publisher does, how long would
he stand it? A moment's thought
will convince auy one that a publisher
has cause for persistent dunning.

Valued Bis Opinion Highly.
New York Herald.
Lawyers as a class are often bothered
by friends and atquaintances who in a
purely innocent manner ask their
opinions on legal technicalities, with
never an idea of paying for the infor
A person of this class received a
merited rebuke recently from a
legal luminary of this city. Meeting
a lawyer, he drew from his pocket a
$5 bill and said: " Give me your opin
ion on this note. Is it good?"
The lawyer took it, examined it
carefully and then rendered his de"
vision. "It is perfectly good," he
said, and in a nonchalant way he
folded it up and put it in his pocket.
"And now, said the other, "I'll
thank you for the money."
"Oh, no," replied the attorney.
"I'll retain it as my fee. To give ad
vice is my profession, and I cannot
afford to render au important opinion
without pay."

Pretty Ulrl station Agent.
Passengers over the Rumford Falls
and Buckfield road always notice
upon the platform at East Peru a
plump and pretty girl who wears the
regalia of the station agent. She
wears a cap with gold lace and a brass
shield, and on the shield is " Station
Agent." This is Miss Lillie Howard,
and she has had charge of the station
at East Peru for sometime. She is
attentive to her duties, the train men
always have a smile and a pleasant
word for l;er, and many a drummer
vainly attempts to appropriate a
share of her smile as the train whisks
past. 'Tis needless to comment on
the neatness of East Peru's station.
SPOKANE Tribune: John Simon, the
Lot's reservation Indian, who mur
dered the squaw Old Jempee, was re
manded for murder by Commissioner
Kenyon last week, and will be taken
to McNeill's Island, where he will be
held until the next session of the U.
S. Circuit Court here. Chief Lot, Old
Cornelius and other Indians were
present as witnesses. Siinon confessed
the murder. He said he had lost his
horse and having become tired of
hunting he asked Old Jempee to let
him stay in her tepee all night. She
called him a thief and told him to go
away. Simon determined to sleep in
the tepee, brained the old woman with
a wagon spoko and spent the night in
the tepee.
The Pension LIU.
The pension roll contains 966,012
names and the amount paid the pen
sioners in the year ending June 30,
1893, was 1156,740,467. During the
year 123,634 names were added to the
rolls and 33,690 names were dropped.
Of the latter 25,005 were the names of
pensioners who died during the year.
There are now outstanding 711,150
claims, including those for increase of
pensions. If twenty years ago it had
been suggested that twenty-eight
years after the war closed the pension
list would be growing at an unprece
dented rate, the idea would have been
scouted as absurd, yet suoli is the
fact and it is not easy to fix a time
when the increase will cease. Of the
3,000,000 men who eulieted during the
war 2,000,000 are said to be alive, and
the department estimates that the
number of persons embraced in the
provisions of the dependent pensions
law will equal 2,000,000 more. Of
these 4,000,000 persons, less than one
quarter are in receipt of pensions. It
is highly probable, therefore, that n
large number of the other three-quar
ters will be heard from. The New
York W'oWti believes that the pension
roll by 1905 will contain 1,200,000
names. The Commissioner of Pen
sions thinks that the maximum num
ber may be reached by 1895, but this
hardly seems possible because as the
pensions of enlisted men expire by
their death, in the majority of in
stances some one claiming a depen
dent pension will take their places.
The official figures render it very
doubtful if the pension list will fall
below $150,000,000 by the year 1910.
After that the decrease will, of course,
be more rapid. This is a vast burden
for the taxpayers to bear, but if all
the money went to deserving recip
ients no one would complain. This
vast pension list, which in a few years
will be three times as great as the
total expense of governing the coun
try in the year before the war, must
have a powerful influence upon our
fiscal policy for many years to come.
He Would Be Responsible.
A minister of a prominent New
York church, who was about to leave
home for a few days, was bidding good
bye to his family.
When he came to Bobby be took
the little fellow in his arms and said:
Well, young man, I want you to be
a good boy, and be sure and take good
care of mamma.
Bobby promised, and the father de
parted, leaving him a very large and
full appreciation of his new and
weighty responsibility. When night
came and he was called to say his
prayers, the young guardian expressed
himself as follows:
" O Lord, please protect papa, and
brother Dick, and sister Alice and
Aunt Mary, and all the little Jones
boys, and Bobby. But you needn't
trouble about mamma, for I'm going
to look after her myself."

Hkuk was a great utterance, made
by William Pitt more than a century

"My lords and gentlemen—To levy a

may invite revolt; but there is a
method by which you may tax the

a murmur against high taxes, and
that is to tax a great many articles of
daily use and necessity so indirectly
