The young man got his second wind on the first jump. “I didn’t say so, did I ? ’ he asked cool ly. The old gentleman gasped. “But you were goiug to say so?’ he insisted. “Who told you I was?” inquired the applicant, seekiug this advantage. “But you want me to let you marry her dou’t you ?" asked the old gentleman, softening. “No.” “No?” and the old gentleman almost fell off’ his chair. “That’s what I said.” The old gentleman thought he had made a mistake. “Then what in thunder do you waut ? ’ he exclaimed. “I want you to give your consent,” re plied the youth pleasantly. “I’m going to marry her anyhow, but we thought your consent wouldn’t be a bad thing to have as a starter.” it took the old gentleman a minute to l.io equilibrium WIlPII tip ilid he put out his hand. “Shake, my boy,” lie said. “1 ve beeu looking for a son-in-law with some sand in bis craw, and I guess you’ll do." Detroit Free Fee*#. Million* starve while Cleveland bunts ducks.— Afartinsburg Herald. The Herald editor seem* to have forgotteu that President Harrison occasionally went duck shooting; at least he does not take the trouble to say that Benjamin ever divided the trucks lie bagged amongst the hungry or starving. If millions are starving now why is it? They are living under the beneG cent(?) protective lari AT laws fostered by the Republican party the past thirty years.— But Hon. Tom Reed tells why tbero is dis tress in the land. In the closing sentences of his minority report on the Wilson tariff bill is to be found the following : “We have taken thus tar no notice of the condition of business now, which is terrible, and of the workingmen which beggars de scription. There is no need for us to pre sent this to the country. It is present ng itself. In one hundred representative cities, where the number employed exceeds 2,500, 000 people, fully one-third, by the most conservative estimate, are without employ ment. These are engHged in the protected industries.” Of the “millions starving whilst Cleve land hunts ducks” the Herald and Tom Reed do not claim that any of them are protected employers. ■ ■»» •—— Ho ! my sisters, see the banner Waving in the sky, Are you broken-down, discouraged? Courage! help is nigh. On that banner read this legend : “Suffering women, bail! Pierce's Favorite Prescription Ne’er was known to fail." The success of this remedy is wonderful.

THE SOUVENIR SPOON. “The Favorite.” I have on hand the old St. George Chapel Souvenir Spoon. The ruins of old St. George Chapel are U miles from Charlcs-Town and an object of in terest. The Chapel is supposed to nave been erected as early as 1750—probably as late as 1700. It is mentioned in Henning’s Statutes at Large as one of the Chapels more costly than many others. The site, which is on the lands of Col. H. B. Davenport, is supposed to have been donated by Lord Fairfax. It is sup posed to have been more elegant, lienee more costly, than others, because it was located near where manv wealthy Churcli-of-Kngland peo ple lived who would take pride in out-doing their neighbors in the size and magnificence of their houses of worship. At any rate, the present ruin was once grand in its time. The walls were of stone quarried in the vicinity. The other material is supposed to have been brought from England. The roof was sheet lead ; the window an 1 door frames of cedar wood ; the floor in tiling; the pews anc pul pit in oak—elaborately carved. The soft, grey old walls in summer time are ivy-hung— bnt the Chapel, as pictured in the bowl of the spoon, is a winter scene—the venerable pile surrounded by leafless trees and the graves of the olden-time covered with the ‘‘beautiful snow.” For sale bv.
