One Year ... -Six Mcrathi . .1.00 ...50 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 1898. FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Blanco is turning white. We are still for the United States, but might be stiller. Imperialists should beware of sunken tioads and St. Helenas. After all the Ohio Napoleon turns out not to be an imperialist. An immune is a politician who can run for an office all his lite and never catch it Isn't it strange that since the annex ation of Hawaii the sugar trust has been lost sight of. Sagasta talks like a . pop. He wants a referendum. Maybe we can stand him oft with a glossary or a concordance. The inside news from Santiago im presses us with the thought that some of the quarter-masters ought to quartered and cored. The Illinois troops were sent to Porto Eico because they had been acclimatedin Egypt and had become immune in the Chicago river. The two old parties that have differed so long on the tariff have been drawn together by the war and now agree on protection for ships and free trade in shells. Contracts are being made to-day covering a period of several years. This is highest proof of confidence of the sta bility of the good times which have come again. "Manana" is the Spanish word mean ing "to-morrow," and it has been over worked for several centuries. It is pro nounced man-yahna, with the accent on the middle syllable or noonday siesta. Secretary Day has ably demonstrated that "a mere country lawyer" can han dle momentous questions without a brass band accompaniment. - 4 ' The Texas republicans have placed a ticket in the field and propose to make a thorough canvas of the state. There was a time when a Republican ticket in the state of Texas was considered a farce, but the gain in the Republican vote down there has been very encouraging and the future elections will not be so one-sided. The war with Spain is over and now it is a war between officers who draw good pay, and the enlisted privates who are getting $13 a month. The former want to continue the service, while the latter are anxious to be mustered out and re turn to their homes. Our sympathy is with the privates. Let them come home and leave the officers there to do garrison duty a while at $13 a mouth and the list of deserters would be large in a short time. If the unemployed of the United States were called upon to-day to formulate a plan by which larger employment could be secured, to venture to suggest that the independence oflCuba and the annex ation of Hawaii and Puerto Rico would be cited as among the first as countries ,)t places affording a new market from which there might spring a larger use tf American products whereby labor night secure larger employment. President McKiuley has shown him self capable of setting aside precedents .'or the public good. A majority of the .jeople seem to incline to the opinion ,hat it were better we should escape the responsibility of governing the Philip pines, but, if we should be called upon iy the nature of the obligation growing rat of the conquest of the Inlands, we enow that a Republican President, sup wrtedby a Republican Congress, will lisentangle the many perplexing prob lems and develop a policy on which every nerican can stand, and at the same time insure to these captured islands a setter form of government than they lave ever before known. I) (feneration. James J. Corbett, the pugilist, has prov n conclusively that a man cannot be a ragilist Jand still remain a gentleman. Vhen Corbett started on his pugilistic areer, the daily papers of the country eemedwith column after column of 'stuff" I cannot call it anything else lesrribing Jim's many gentlemanly and dttenlsh qualities. That is scarcely five 'ears ago, but what a difference. His irst wife has left him in disgust and se cured a divorce, and it is nothing uncom ;non thing to see his name in the papers in connection with some saloon brawl, And to cap the climax, his father mur ders his wife and kills himself in a fit of insanity supposedly brought on by the heavy losses Jhe sustained by betting on his son's success. Sorely, the cup of the pugilist is filled with bitterness and gall.

THE TRAMP QUESTION. The time is nearlnit with the cool fall winds and the frosty nights, when some morning you will see a poorly clad and hungry looking beggar coming loyour back Moor door to ask for sometmngto eat, or some clothing to replace the rags he is wearing. He will tell a pltuui sto- ... ail 1 - ry. How he slept tne nigm oeiore oy me railroad track, or in some old Darn, or hay stack, but he never says he was re fused work the day before. He is always looking, but never finds it. If he is of fered work, he wants a better job, or else it is too hard. Now, after all this, you think you will not turn him away hungry, in order to have !a clear conscience, but will give this one aid. ;in a day or two. there is another one askine aid. and so on. The outcome is that if halt the neighborhood had your sympathetic disposition, were would soon be more beggars than the town could aid. Then the conclusion to be drawn is that no one should give aid from their back door. Let there be some kind of a public test, such as a pile of wood to be split up or something of that kind. Perhaps you mitrht have a job you would like to have done, und if the beggar is willing to do it, then lie is worthy of your aid, but as a general rule, the more you aid, the irreater number there are to be aided. Compare the case with England. At one time there were laws in England which provided for the paupers of the country, and the result was that those who did not work were better provided with food and clothing than the laborers, and froni this the number of poor increased. So with our beeears. If they see that they will be aided they will not work, and the number will be greatly iucreased. "Why do laborers work?" is a question that economists have put forth, and the an- swor is, "That they may eat." Then if a man won't work, let him go without eating, unless there are excellent reasons for seeking assistance. Perhaps we might ask why it is that men will beg. It is because they are created with a roving spirit. The way to check it Is to stop giving them indi vidual aid, but have a test to see if they are willing to work. If they are, give them aid. and if not. tell them to pass on, and in this way a great social reform will be brought about.

In promulgating your esoteric cogita tions, or articulating superficial senti mentalities and philosophical psycholo gical observations, beware of platitud inous ponderosity. Let your conversa tions possess a clarified conciseness, coniprehensibleness, coalescent consist ency and a concatenated cogency. Eschew all conglomerations of flatu lent garrulity, jujune babblement an d asinine affections. Let your extempor aneous descantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and veracious vivacity, without rodomontade or thrasonical bombast. Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pom pous prolixity, ventriloquial verbosity and vanlloquent vapidity. In other words subscribe for the Enterprise.

Miss Belle J. Allen of Tokio, and Miss Maude E. Simons of Yokohoma, who were killed about four weeks ago in a harbor accident at Yakahoma, Japan, were both Ohio girls, the latter from Fredericktown Both were graduates of the Ohio Wesley an University at Delaware, and of the Chicago Training School, and were teach ers under the Woman's Foreign Mission ary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Good looks are really more than skin deep, depending entirely upon a healthy condition of all the vital organs. If the liver is inactive, you have a bilious look; if your stomach is disordered, you have a dyspeptic look: if your kidneys are af fected, you have a pinched look. Secure good health, and you will surely have good looks. ' Electric Bitters" is a good alternative and tonic. Acts directly on the stomach, liver and kidneys, purifies the blood, cures pimples, blotches and boils, and gives a good complexion. Ev ery bottle guaranteed. Sold at W. F.
