This was nu original mid diic Ina performance, which jnlsht of Itself have led to traalf results, but It slves only a tfllmpso of his various econo inies. It is stated that huildliu: hotels near his mines wus a favorite pastime, that lie bought if'-'o.fxio rugs as u pum percd child might buy ciiiily, and that when there was nothing left to buy ho passed purees around union? the happy peons from whom ho sprang. Marring the peons who needed tlio money, It seems a pity on the whole that he was not nllowed to turn over a few mill ions to the national government.' When a man ban bought up the year's crop of iintlrjun rugs ho must experience I'niislderable dllllculty In ulug them to tin bei advantage. The string of empty hotel would be a hollow mock en.

THE RK1HT WAY TO SOLVE IT. It Is pleasing us well as encourag ing to read of the prompt and effective manner In which the good people of Kremuillng, Colo,, have solved the af finity problem, so far as they have come lu contact with It up to this date. Itfccutly a delegation of Kremiiilliig citizens waited upon a certain clergy man, who at the time was dwelling with a woman not bin wife, dragged him outdoors, liooowhlpped him until he begged for mercy, and then led him to ids home a mile away, where ho was told to remain with his wife and two children under pulu of mine sum mary punishment. It Is Mife to say that tills particular gentleman will not be Doubled witli tlio nihility lunula again; In fact, he pledged himself to resist It henceforth, ami to lie content wltli the woman he hud chosen as his wife. And ll goes without ni.vlng that the alllulty (lleciis'c will not spread lu the neighborhood of Kreiiiiullug. What ever may be the yearning toward nf Unities lu that quarter It Is likely to be overcount by the memory of the horsewhipping endured in behalf of his Ideal by this minister. Society lu Kreiumliug does not pretend to bo as tar advanced as Niclety lu wane of the older parts of the country, but, In a crude sort of way, ll entertains cer tain beliefs with legard to tlio morali ties and tlio proprieties which might well be entertained lu all coiiimuut. ties. We ure ery well aware that ad vocates of complete liberty of action, Mich as Professor llerron mid Maxim (fiirky, and opioiifiits of the marriage state generally, will regard the good people of Kreiumliug as a lot of imr rowmlnilisl bigots, If not a lot of bar. harlaiis. Some ol the ndvauced social istic playwrights and novelists, the apologists for tlm Ilerrons and the Corky, may be eecled when they bear of this case to Inaugurate a new literary crus.ide agiliist the "Ameri can hypocrites."

A rigid exam ination of all the milk sold In Chicago should be made at once ami the Inves tigation kept up until all the coplo of Chicago are supplied with pure milk ami the guilty dealers lined or put In Jail.

As there Is plen ty of room at Jollet, the government should immediately get busy. Real estate taxes vivo been raised all over Chicago. They will bo higher this year than ever before. If the bis packing corporations who make tliolr millions out of prices wrung from tbo pcoplo for food, would pay their Just proportion of porsonal taxes, real cstato taxation would be much, lowor. Tlio pnckci'8 will ho obliged, uoforo this agitation ceases, to not only pay their full and Just proportion of tlio personal tax-, but they will bo obliged to pay back taxes for tbo full amount, for llvo years. Tho Supremo Court has passed upon this matter ami tho way Is clear. Tho packers- appear to bavo things pretty much their own wuy Just now, hut tho pcoplo will wake, up ouo of these, days. Tlio recent grout lucreuso In tho prlco of meat alone, ought to havo fur nlshed tho packers with enough money to pay their taxes upon all of tbelr personal property holdings, stocks, bonds and everything else.
