Manchester Democrat.
Corporations in Politics.
(From tho Cedvr Baplds Gazette.)
Alton IS. Parker is apparently
shocked nt the proof of his suspicions
that the corporations bought the de
feat of VV. J. Bryan. There were
others who had the same suspicion,
and who mentioned the matter before
Judge Parker had called it to the at
tention of the public. As the ease
is remembered at this time, Presi
dent Ingalls o£ the Big Four railway
system was the only corporation
democrat of prominence who adher
ed to the cause of liryan and who
publicly declared himself in favor of
the election of tho Newbraskan.
McCall, Belmont, Morgan, Morton,
Bear and others of thoir stripe have
been "democrats" for the same rea
son that Depew, Rockefeller, Vander
bilt, lingers and others have been
"republicans." They have not had
belief in any principle endorsed by
eiiher party. The greatest beliel
they have had in any party has at
tached to departures from principle.
They have not sought laws founded
on justice. Their use for law has
been in connection with statutes
that would allow them to impose on
others and to commit moral crimes
without encountering the possibility
of puuishment. They may have be
lieved in laws for the punishment of
lior.ie thieves and incendiaries who
burn grain stacks, because they were
not engaged in either line of busi
ness. They do not believe in any
law that makes it as much of a crime
to steal a million dollars as it is to
steal fifty cents. They would never
support for olRce any man who
holds that it is as great a wrong to
steal all the money of the widow, or
phan or other investor, as it is for
the widow or orphan to steal a loaf
of bread from the well filled shelf of
a bakery. That is not their style of
Their division between republicans
and democrats was arranged among
themselves for the purpose of con
trolling both parties and nntil Bryan
and Roosevelt came upon the scene
their scheme worked very well. They
elected Cleveland as much as they
elected any president. Their money
paid for his election, and he saw to
it that the money of the people -re
imbursed them for the temporary
lunii. They created EckleB, and
paid the expenses of "the gold stand
ard" democratic campaign of Palmer
and Buckner. They nominated
'his latter ticket, but they took qo
chmce by voting for it. JThey in
vented tho "honor among nations"
hurrah, and they put forward the
•pilhets ofc^ icpu4i«tor, anarchist,
eoppenrhead and others, -applying
hem. to men with whom they are un
fit to associate. As a matter of fact,
liese frenzied financiers are not fit
lo do the most menial work around
t!ie farm of William J. Bryan, so
ong as men can be hired for the
liecliurge of the duties. Tho truth

ru financiers diminish in the public

Subsidy vs Equality.
lyA 11. McCuok, Soc'y Iowa l)emocr-tlc Clubs.
Like the "tainted money" contro
versy, Mr. Carnegie's gift of §10,
MU.lKJO in steel trust bonds as
unci for college professors who have
unlived their days of usefulness, is
exciting much adverse criticism and
ilso some that is favorable.
It is unnecessary for the present
to question Mr. Carnegie's motives
hut what of the influence and ulti
nat-i consequence of these annuities?
Next to Rockefeller, Mr. Carnegie
^tho greatest beneficiary of the
trust system. There is already too
much trust and corporation Jomina
tion in tho educational work of our
With an equitable industrial sys
tem there would be no Rockefellers
and Carnegies who, like parasites,
fatten at the expense of less fortu
nate members of society.
Better than this system of unequal
distribution which breeds financial
princes and paupers, would be the
strict enforcement of tho cardinal
principal of Democracy—"Equal
rights to all, special privileges to
none." This, while preventing the
accumulation of colossal fortunes by
our "captoins of industry," would
give to the private in tho ranks of
the industrial armv a just propor
tion of his production.
Between socialism and monopoly
there is a happy mean, and when
is reached all will be rewarded in
proportion to what they do for so
ciety. When fair play and equality
become universal, the problems of
"tainted money," pensions and mo
nopolistic charity will disappear,
Democracy's great mission to the
world is to abolish subsidies and
secure equality of opportunity for

The Bathtub.
Among the crosses many housewives
have to annoy them is a bathtub of
uninviting appearance in a room that
otherwise looks fresh and clean. The
tarnished surface may refuse to be
come bright, 110 matter what cleausing
materials are employed.
By being your own workman you
may at a trifling expense make the
tub quite desirable. Procure a small
can of common paint of nuy light color
desired, a can of enamel paint of the
same color and a good sized brush,
Cut eight or ten inch pieces of yellow
soap Into bits and put it over the fire
to dissolve in a couple of quarts of
water, says the Chicago Tribune. Fill
the bathtub with hot water and throw
In a generous handful of powdered
borax and the dissolved sonp. When
the water becomes cool enough to put
the hands In, scrub the surface with a
brush, letting the water ruu off as the
work is done. Again partly fill the
tub with hot water and scrub with the
brush and sand soap to make sure that
all greasy particles have been removed.
Then rinse it in clear hot water and
thoroughly dry.
Cover it with two cpatings of the
common paint, letting one thoroughly
dry before puttlug on the secoud coat,
then give it several coats of the enamel
paint. This paint will dry more quick
ly than the other and the bath will no
longer be an unsightly object. Care
must be used not to run hot water into
the bath alone until the paint has been
A Queen'* Advice to Wlveit.
Aht if we did but accustom ourselves
to live with the thought of death more
constantly before us. writes Carmen
Bylva, queeu of Uoumanla, lu a mag
azine. How gentle, how indulgent, It
must necessarily make us if on all
occasions we reminded ourselves of
the ever present danger, of the end
that must soouer or later come to all,
If we did but reflect that tomorrow
the one we love best may be no longer
with us, that our eyes seeking him
may find his accustomed place va
cant, our ears stralu in vain to catch
the cchoes of his voice! We should
surely be more patient at imaginary
aud even at real grievances if we did
not lit our daily lives carefully put
away from us the thought of tho iu-
evitablo separation that sooner or later
must come. But we thluk too little of
what we owe to others and too much
of Hint which we fancy to be due to
ourselves, till we easily arrive at per
suading ourselves that we are neglect
ed aud slighted and misunderstood and
altogether undervalued by our hus
I)}eing Garment* at Hone.
The garment to be dyed must first
of all be absolutely clean. Whether it
is silk, wool or cotton it must first of
all be washed with soap and rinsed in
clear water afterward. The dye must
be boiling, aud the goods to be dyed
must remain in the boiling liquid for
twenty minutes or half an hour. Chif
fon takes dye beautifully. So do wool
en goods. Silk Is harder to do and
sometimes ouly takes in spots. But
still b,v seeing that you get the proper
dye ior each kind of goods and by fol
lowing the instructions implicitly you
will often get results far beyond your
expectations. One of the points Is to
keep the article to be dyed moving
the whole time It is in the liquid, and
then the color Is sure of reaching every
port. Of course a small wooden stick
must be used for this purpose to avoid
soiling the hands.
How to Keep Off Wrinkle*.
It is highly important that grime ac
cumulated iu the day should be re
moved before lying down. Neglect of
this rule will cause sallowuess and
blackheads. The face should be washed
with hot water and soap, bo rinsed in
many waters and be dried thoroughly.
Next, a really good skin food, quite
free from wax, spermaceti aud salted
lard and containing little or no glycer
in, may be applied. If a liquid, It
should be brushed over the parts. If
more solid, it should be gently spread.
Any massage below the eyes or at
the eye corners is sure to make wrin
kles. A brush has a marvelous effect
ou the softer skiu lines.
A Bad Complexion.
A bad complexion is oftcu due to
malnutrition. Matters will be improved
if a glass of either hot or cold water
be sipped on waking and an hour be
fore each meal. This washes away the
mucus from the lining of the stomach
and the food is absorbed in conse
quence. Plenty of milk and some of
the well known prepared foods should
be taken. A small quantity of meat
will suffice, with plenty of stewed
fruit and vegetables. An apple at
breakfast will help the good cause.
Care of Glove*.
'A lady is known by her shoes and
by her gloves." This is a saying that
has stood the test of years. Every
thing depends ou the way the glove is
put on the first time. The glove which
is once put on crooked can never be
straightened. No one but the woman
who is by nature tidy realizes how
much longer gloves will last if they
rgje carefully removed and cleaned and
mended. Gloves should always be
pulled out first by the finger tips and
wrists and put away in tissue paper.
Ltglit Olftoult.
I11 mixing biscuit avoid handling the
dough as much as possible. Do all
the mixing with a spoou and make a
little, wetter than the accepted rule.
Toss ou floured board and press once
and very lightly with the rolling pin
and cut out with a glass If this rule
Is followed the biscuits will melt In the
mouth like suowflnkes.
How Children Are Worried.
Children are often worried because
their mothers are too attentive and
continually reprove the Binall ones
without reason. A child should be left
alone and be allowed to play or amuse
Itself in its own way without the con
stant direction of a nervous mother.
Chiifltitc Dish Cabinet*.
Clinfiug dish cabinets arc growing In
popularity for the dining room or the
bachelor maid's den. They can be had
in oak aud mahogany. One cabinet
has folding doors, aud the interior Is
large enough to hold all the necessaries
for spread.

The Lamp.
Almost every lamp wants boiling oc
casionally when the light burns dimly,
and no attention to oil or wick will
make any difference. Take the lamp
apart, remove the wick and then boll
