Ue regarJed children as a nuia? ance. He did bia courting before mar riage. He never talked over his affairs with his wife. He never bad time to go any where with his wife. He doled out money to his wife as if to a servant. He looked down npon bis wife as an inferior being. He thought of his wife only as a cheap housekeeper. He never took time to get ac quainted with his family. He never dreamed that there were two sides to marriage. He never dreamed that a wife deserved praise or compliments. He had one set of manners for home and another for society. He thought hiB wife should spend all her time doing house work. He married an ideal, and was disappointed to find it had flaws. He paid no attention to his per sonal appearance after marriage. lie treated his wire as he would not have dared to treat another woman. Bryan Revival Spread ing Like Wildfire. Dispatches reporting the direct endorsement of William J.Bry an, Democratic nominee for Pres ident in 1908, has caused general comment in Washington. All the news coming from the West is to the eftect that the Bryan re vival is spreading like wildfire. Democrats in Congress now believe that Air. Bryan will cer tainly be the party choice in 1908, and that the return of the leader of 1896 and 1900 vastly in creases the chances of- Democrat ic success, both at the congress ional election next 'fall, and at the general election two years later. Mr. Bryan is expected to land in .New York abont August 1, on completing his tour around the world. Plans already are being laid to furnish him a demonstra tion on his return which will amp ly show a general Democratic de mand for his assumption of (he leadership. Two Extremes New York Press. The Irishman evidently had been drinking a little. He climb en snto one of the two bootblack chairs in front of the Tribune building, and, after settling him self comfortably, glanced at his chair neighbor. Theu he laughed. His neighbor, who was a fat pom pous negro, about 50 years old, dressed in clerical garb, frowned. "Well, smoky," said the Irish man, ignoring the negro's look of disapproval, "this surely is a queer countree. Here I am and there you are. It's not so long since I was a bog trotter, and I suppose you were a slave. And here we have two Dago descend ants of Julius Caesar shining our brogans."

A SETTER. This that follows is really fan ny. It is told by a Georgia "gen tleman of the old school," who is noted for rare humor: "I heard a good story the oth er day about a horse, and most tell it to the children. A man had a horse who would sit down whenever he was touched in the flank. He would just squat on his hind quarters like a dog. The man tried to break him of it, but be couldn't, and nobody would buy him. One day a sportsman came along and made his acquain tance, and they took a ride to gether to hunt partridges. When they- found a covey the man touched bis heels to the horse's flank, and he sat down. 'What makes your horse do that?' Baid the Bportsman. 'Why,he's a set ter,' said "the man. 'He sets birds just like a dog.' So the sports man thought he was a most won derful horse, and he swapped for him and gave fifty dollars to boot. And he got on him, and after a while they came to a creek that was pretty deep, and as the sports man held up his legs to keep them out of the water, he touch ed the horse in the f}an}f, and he sat in the water. Wh?P be got him up and out and was all dripping wet, he was mad as a wet hen, and said: 'Well, sir, what made this do that way in water?' 'I forgot to tell you,' said the man, 'that he sets fish just as well as he does birds." THE ALMIGHTY HAIRPIN. The wife of a Kansas farmer, so the story goes, got tirqd of ask ing him to fix some things about the house that needed fixing, and one day after he had come home from town told him she had done the work herself. "And yon know," she said, "the drawer that was locked for over a month, and which you said couldn't be opened except by a locksmith? well, triumphantly, I opened it. "Well, well! how in the world did you do it?" "With a hairpin. And the oven door" she continued, has been slipping around on one hinge for ever so long just because you were too lazy to fix it, but it's all right now." "Well, I'm glad you had it fixed." " "Had? I fixed it myself?with a hairpin. And then that crayon portrait of mother that stood in the corner for almost six solid weeks because you never would bring me my picture hooks?I hung it with a hook I made my self ?out of a hairpin." "Well, well," was all he could say. "And there's Willie. You've been coaxing and bribing him for over a year, trying to break him of biting his nails, and I broke him in a week. With a hairpin? he inquired meekly. "JSro! she snapped. Don't be a goose! With a hairbrush!" Once in a great while you en counter a man who workB more than he ought to, bnt tha aver age man doesn't do half as much as he is capable of doing. Very often it is Baid that the Angel of death has called for a man, when it would be more fit ting if he had been called for by a fire engine. DON'T IGNORE THE MONEY SIDE. No matter what your vocation may be, you mast be a business man first, or you will alwayB be placed at a great disadvantage in the practical affairs of life. We can not entirely ignore the mon ey side of existence any more than we can the foot side, and the very foundation of a practi cal, successful life is the ability to know how to manage the money side effectively. It is infinitely harder to save money and to invest it wisely than to make it, and, if even the most practical men, men who have had along training in scien tific business methods, find it a difficult thing to hold on to mon ey after they make it, what is likely to happen to people who have had practically no training in business methods? If every child in America had a thorough business training,tens of thousands of promoters, long headed cunnings cbemers, who have thriven on the people's ig norance would be out of an-occu pation. I believe that the business coll eges are among the greatest bles sings in American civilization to day, because they have saved thousands of homes from being wrecked, and have made happy and comfortable tens of thous ands of people who might other wise be living in poverty and wretchedness.?(Success.

William Jennings Bryan The Democratic conventions throughout the oonntry are voicing the universal sentiment of the peo ple by endorsing Bryan. This is natural, commendable, inevitable, bnt needless All the resolutions which cm Id be adopted by conventions or other bodies of the assembled people oonld not add anything more to hiB fame nor more seoarely rivit about him the oonfidenoe and love of the people. Political defe&t did not becloud the memory of Webster, Olay, Til den or Blaine. Many readers of history wculi prefer to fill the niohe in history oooopied by any one of these four great and grand men, than that held by others who have been president. Bryan "#6atdT trtrtf<5QbV prefer to -p&se into history one of the ablest and readiest debater*, the acknowledg ed leader of reforms springing from the people as distinguished from nostrums granted to them, the incompatible, honest, sinoere friend of the struggling masses and the ohampion of publioity and frankness in political campaigns | and party movement, than to have history record him as President, number so and so. Bat the things I which are "ooming out in the wash are proofs of Bryan's inoisive intel leotual qualities, showing a graap of surroundings and an insight into men, methods and matters, rarely possessed by mortals In the campaigns of 1896 and 1900, his war ory heard far above free silver and '"consent of the gov erned" was the necessity for the people'to rcclaim their government from the money ohangers and tricksters who had no politioal oonviotions and who bad by de degrees enriohed themselves as the masters, instead of the servants of the people. So righteous was this demand, so fearlessly and ably did he present it single handed and alone, that it took vast sums of the money of the insuranoe companies, the banks, the trusts and other corporations to defeat him by even a small margin. More than ttlis, it required bull-dozing and coer cion cpenly praotioed to do the turn. Bryan knew then, as the peo pie know now, that it was the peo pie's own money, taken from them by corporation officials, whiohawat being used to defeat him, and perpetuate their speoiBl priviliges and keep the government from the people. He preaohed them the dootrine of government control of railroad rates and now that the people see others riding his "bob bies" they naturally turn with gen erous acknowledgements to the fearless advooate who wa battling for theBe things beoauee they are right and not btciuBe the} are popular. ?'Free silver" and opposition to "government by injunction" help ed to defeat bim, of course; but at that time the result would have r>een the same if these issues bad not been foroed to the front. But the money question, so far as sil ver is oonoerned, settling itself, the paramount, burning question? oome to light now stronger than in 18%; shall the people govern themselves? Were men made to ride always and others condemned to walk always? Can the people be free, absolutlely free, when cor porations oan, without rebuke, spend the people's money to cor rapt eleotions? In short, the peo ple demand, yes, crave more sim plicity and publioity in their pnb lio business and are determined to have one more honest, fair and a square election without the cor rupting presenoe of money, favors or brutal ooeroion. Tbey want direotness and frankness from can didates and parties, and absolute honesty and a squire deal froui officials. Ttoe grafter, the oorrup tionists and bull-dczar must go. With these sentiments implanted deeply in the minds of the people, there is no wonder that all classes ?and conditions of men turn with feelings of pride to the intrepid Commoner who hss never weaken ed or faltered Whatever he may have believed or believes now, he has been trne, honest Bnd brave, and the people love and respect that kind of a roan.

Ohiosgo.?Like the warning voice of the ancient Sibyl cryirg "Beware of the idee of Maroh" oomea the gloomy forecast of a Ohiosgo prophetess. It was she, Mme. Seers, who, Bt the time cf the great son spot, tebrurary 4 190d, predioteel disaster, horror, and wholesale death. "I forsee some awful t atastrophe in the distance," said the seeress from her 'dim-draped' den in Kan dolph street. Then came the San Franoisoo earthquake, with its train of fire, and Mme. Saers says she has "made good". "Beware June 29," was the dan ger signal that the madam display, el this morning. Thfs warning comes in oonjunotion with the wjrning of Horace Johnson, the .New England prophet, who fore saw earthquakes, eleotrioal disturb ances and pestilence, due yesterday and today. Mme. Seers blames the forth ooming catastrophe cn the planets There is a terrible mixnp in the vast planetary realms, she says. As Mme. Saers sat brooding in her den last night, wondering in fanoy over star strewn vistas, through space sprinkled with star dust, to the rims of cold, dim worlds vibrating in the planetary waste she made this propbeoy: 'The earth will now. be visited by a su preme upheaval.

We art entering on an era of misfortune The conditions on our little (Janet are the most appalling of any ex isting in all peopled worlds of the . unbounded universe.*' How to Kt ep a Servant Don't expeot a servant to have an angel's temper when she is tired out and there is still half a day's work to be done. See that she gets a little time to herself in the evenings and en oourage her in her amusements, her sewing etc Don't treat her as you might a stray xlog that hadn't a home and whioh you took in out of oharity She is as sensitive as you are, her feelings Bre just as aoute. Let her go out as often as yon reasonably oan without upsetting the home. All work and no play never accomplished anything yet Think twioe before grumbling. If you are oonvincad that she has really been oareless, a rebuke will be neoessary; if not, it may pay to help a lame dog over a stile by speaking kindly. She will work acne the worse for it. Troubles of Editor Who Told Truth. The newspaper business at Smithfield, Wetzal county, has be. oome too strenuous for the ordi nary membar of the fraternity The latest advioe from there ia to the cffeot that the lone newspaper man is now a fit subject for the hospital and that the "valuable paper' will,in all probability not appaar next week.

OHio. | June 15, 1906? Foe The Begisteb: I stood on a baloony looking down on a busy street 6oene: I saw all kinds of humanity. Street oars, horse?, wagons, carriage?, automobiles, pass in one grand panorama before me- I 8aw the millionaire, and beggar, brush elbows, The Gen tiles j>stle the Jew. The chris tian minister walk beside the infi. del. The bUok. the white, the brown, the yellow races alt in one heotoraneous hires I saw the diamonds flash on a lady's hand as her oarriaga went sweep:n$ by. Aoroes the street I saw a wcmnn, from sunny Italy, slovenly dressed, with packs cn ber baok that wcn'd break a horse down I saw a yonng man with the stamp of health in form and faoe, go stepping j .untily by. I saw a man iDfirm and ill and bent with sorrow and siotncss, and alas! I oould plainly see that the silent messenger was not far behind. I saw a yocng boy and girl go by w.th pleasure written on their fioee. I saw hope beckoning on for nany to foil >w while dark de spair, was on the brow of some, disappointment was in the orowd aad walked drooping behind suo o?s. The miser was there with greed for gold while beside him walked the philanthropist with love for all humanity. I heard a ohuich bell toll, and I knew sorrow was in the hearts of some. A young lady rnstled by in silk while gems shone from "round ber throat," a begger woman asked for alms, but all she gi t, was a look of ojld disdain, as she pulled ber skirts aside and straightway I nimedher pride Djwn a n darby alley I heaid swearing and the sound of blows and I knew hate was not conquered yet. A funeral procession wended its way thro* the crowd, and they told me it was a drunkards ohild and I knew re al >rse was there I saw a you(.h 'from just down on the farm" just arrived with his mother's kiss, still qu his lips, with bis father's bles sing still lingering around like'a benediotion. J watched him apd presen 1> he en tend a saloon. Be irank . nd otrae out and made as if to go on. S m-j iir^istable power seemed to draw him and baok he went into the wide open gate of pleasure that leads to ruin. I oame down and walk d a little ways out of this busy and fashionable street away from palaoes of men of wealth, away from the faky-ecrapers, and fine hotels, and grett department stores, it tj the slums of the city. Here on every hand. 1 was met with the bn zea sti rj of fallen beauties, with insolent words from drnnken mm and women. It seemed as if their existence was a misery to them I met men, wo men and children, with buokets of beer; one half was going to the grog shop while the other half waa goiogaway. What a plaoe to bring ap c lildren ;n poor thing*; begin a life of sbanie and crime before they are ten years old It makts one sick at heart to see all thie misery and shame and degredation. In a little tquaiid house besides a gilded dea of inf?imy,I saw a few oolortd people oondnoting a prayer meeting and I thought, perhaps, these faithful few prevents this section of the oity 'r m being a Sodom an J Gomorrah Gladly I turned beoK to the better part of the oity. I m? t the youth from the farm making bis way to this maelstrom of vice. He staggered as he walked; a few hours later ,od hs will b? robbed of all he has and then thrown on the street. When I returned the orowd was passiDg to and fro. as it did an honr ago. All at once the noise and bustle and hurrying seemed to cease and ont on the morning ir borjl forth in q tivering tones, "Hock o'a>;e* c'eft-for nit*. Let me hide iuyaelf in thee,*' It was played an 1 sao,f by a blind man and bis wife, and no one in that vast crowd bat stopped to listen, and all grew still as a Sab bath m ming It seemed as if the ?rtnd . 11 hymn hsd reached the learts cf all And verily it had; beoaose at the nonofnbion of the song, ihe silver ooins jost poured into their b&x, end no doubt bnt many went forth, with a new deter mination to bj a help to all, to find a higher life, and when sorrow and pain oomes this bjmn will echo back to them.
