BITS OF PHILOSOPHY' “Ah: if men hut knew in what a small dwelling joy can live, and how little it takes to furnish it.” “We must sow the seed and tend the growth, if we would enjoy the flower. • “Thing* are oftenest nothing in them selves: the thought we attach to them alone gives them value.’ “If happiness is the rarest of blessings it is because the reception of it is the rarest of virtues.” “What surrounds us reflects more or less that which is within us.” “It is with men sdives as witli days some dawn radiant with a thousand brilliant colors, others dark with gloomy clouds.” “These are the saddest secrets of the disease which troubles the age in which we live the envious hatred of those who suffer want, and the selfish forgetful ness of those who live in affluence. “We are so made that each of ns re gards himself a mirror ol the communi ty; what passes in our minds infallibly seems to ns a history of the universe. Every man is like the drunkard who re ports an earthquake, because he feels himself staggering.” THE political situation in Wisconsin np to date is. Will Governor LaFollette receive a third nomination or not'.' Secretary Root has at least done one good act when he issued that order forbidding the docking of horses in the army. There is not a (locked horse in Manitowoc and we hope there never will le, for of all senseless cruelty that seems to be one of the worst. THE failures of the Lake Superior Consolidated Cos at Sault Ste Marie was due to mismanagement anil not be cause the plan was without merit. Had the plant been properly capitalized and managed in an economical manner it would have been a success. Hut it was not and in addition the trust saw a rival in it and helped it to its ruin. At THE meeting called at the Mil waukee Turner Hall to condem the existing corruptness in the municipali ties affairs, Iho socialists attempted to capture the meeting for political effect. Through tlie action of Louis Hohmrich and others this was prevented, they stating that this meeting to have any effect must ho non partisan and for principle s sake and not parties ambi tion. Tin: unions will certainly kill them selves if they keep on a- they are doing in Minnesota. There they hsve threat ened to beat the hills in the legislature for the support of the university, if that institution did not stop the students from tilling the strikers' places. Presi dent Northrup very properly said the university had no control over the stu dents' actions. The unions have done a great deal of good for their members but they must remain in their sphere and not go further than warranted. It is time for the spreading of con servative not disturbing thought, Go\ ernor La Follette thrives on unrest, and be will do what he can to set class against class in the state. If for no other reason, this is reason enoigh whj the conservative men of Wisconsin should put him out of business. Social ism and all the propaganda of unrest, bitterness and confusion will multiply fast enough without the substantial jsiople of thi- state putting their prefej ence upon K M. La Follette. Madison Journal. In the feat it appears that real estate is taxed practically at its selling value and so the rale of taxation is low being 1.48 in Boston while in New York it was still lower and in Philadelphia Baltimore New Haven and Providence it was below 2 per cent. In the west real estate ha been valued very low and as a result the rate for taxation was high. Thus the valuation in Indian apolis and Wisconsin practically being 66 per cent in Cleveland 60 per cent while Kansas City is as low as 40 per cent. -——-mmmmmmm—im Here are a few actual facts which are worthy of thought. A short time ago a man at Manitowoc asked for bids on haul coal screenings and received a bid of |1.76 per ton. Some time there after the same party asked for bids a Oshkosh and one of the bidders that put in a bid at Manitowoc put in a bid at Oshkosh for if 1.25 per ton. While this is strange enough the fact that the <> al is originally shipped to Manitowoc and from there to Oshkosh and after paying freight is then sold 60 cents jer ton cheaper is marvelous indeed. The freight rates evidently work in an in verse way in this case. Postmaster General Payne, that no t irious Wisconsin politician, is to give up his position and came back home. From the day he entered the cabinet the postal trouble began and after being unable to even partially explain himself out of his mix up in Delaware it will be considered best for him to retire on account of his health. That is a way we have in Wisconsin whenever a a student gets “fired” from the univer sitv he leaves on account of his health. The president it is stated is willing to accept the resignation and said that h“ believed he made a mistake in selecting Mr. Payne. We think so. The governor delivered a speech or lecture fit (>d;ir Rapids lowa in which le roasted the Wisconsin legislature worse than ever openly making the Hfime charges that, Whitehead had dis puted Considering that LaFollette and his supporters say all manner of evil things not against the democrats mind you but against the men of their own partv, find those same men say equally gracious things about LaFol lette and his friends what think ye if we turn them both out and see what we can do, we couldn’t possibly he any worse. At a meeting between representa lives of the railroad and the tax com mission in Madison to devise means to collect the railway tax on the ad valorem basis, the railroadmen stated that they would attempt to have private pro perty assessed higher than it is. Hy assessing private property somewhere near its actual value the valuation would, so it is estimated be largely in creased, find as a result the’rate of tax ation be decreased. In other words the railroads figure that by raising the tax oC others they will lower their own. That plan is alright if its execution proves possible. The only trouble is that everyone is afraid that be is being assessed too high as compared with his neighbor. Foil the present the Panama Canal Treaty is dead, the time set for its adoption by Columbia having expired. The president now has the power to enter into negotiation with Nicaragua but considering that a canal by way of the Nicaragua route would be a great dm! longer than via Panama and const* fluently require a greater amount of money for its construction it is very doubtful whether the pres dent will do anything, most likely be will wait until congress convenes and then leave the matter to their consideration. The Panama route would be a great deal shorter and clearer route, but fit the same time that is not a sufficient reason to permit that country tobold the Cnited States up for millions of dollars all the nmr since the digging of the ditch would be the making of Columbia.

My case seemed to be almost a hopeless one. Doctors pronounced it ulcer of the lungs. I was sick nearly two years—part of the time bedfast. Was given up to die by all. I thought it would be impossible for me to live over night at one time. I haven't spit any blood now for more than twelve months, and worked on the farm all last summer.

The makers of good butter will never have the imitation to contend with, good butter is a product that will always claim its price, and protect itself, but why the poor, evil smelling stuff should be held on the market by keeping oleomargarine off with a tax is for a reason unbeknown to u.. Many a person would be enabled to eat clean sweet oleomargarine on his bread, who now uses a butter fit for the soap manu facturers only.

Rock feller the many time millionare as the following news item clipped from the Milwaukee Free Press fully shows. Santa Clara, N. Y., Sept 25.—The reign of terror that has prevailed about the great Rockfeller estate at Bay Pond since the murder of < trrando P. Dexter, culminated today in an appeal for aid telegraphed by Rockefellers s superin tendent to* his employer, who w r ent back to New York a day or two ago. It is thought that men are lying in wait for an opportunity to slay the Standard Oil millionare and his son, as Dexter was killed. Since the arrival of Mr Rockefeller last Monday workmen have b) en busy placing great oil lamps all about the clearing in which the build ings of the Rockefeller preserve and the Bay Pond railroad station are located. These lamps, many of which are loco motive headlights, illuminate the broad and t reeless expanse as clearly as the sun does, making it impossible for any one to come out of the forest at any point without being seen by the guards. A dozen guides, armed with Winchesters patrol the edge of the clearing by day as well as by night. The bitterness felt aga nst Mr. Rocke feller is especially strong in the village of Brandon, north of Bay Pond. The people there blame him for the dest ac tion of their industries, and leaving to day with street after street of empty houses falling into decay. Four years ago. before Mr. Rockefeller began to buy all the property he could get hold of, north of Bay Pond. Brandon was a typically, prosperous village, first he bought the mill and closed it forever At last all the houses on the east side of the railroad belonged to ’Willum Rockefeller, and one night his nu n came up the road and applied the torch and half the village was in ashes BRITAIN’S MONEY CHANGERS.

TIED UP IN DIAMONDS. Million* of Dollar* Lying Idle In the Strung Boxen of Hoynlty and the Wealthy. It is astonishing how much of the world's wealth is locked up in diamonds, things which are of no earthly use to anybody except for the mere purpose of ornamentation. The money spent for diamonds every year would build fleets of peace and war, equip and pay armies, almost wipe out poverty in the city slums, endow hospitals and schools, build railroads and create great libraries. Every now and then some American woman has trouble with the customs au thorities over the duty on jewels, the value of which represents a sum suffi cient for an ordinary man to raise up and educate a large family of children, •ays the New York Press. Millionaire* and crowned heads pos sess diamonds which represent idle wealth sufficient to build whole streets of model tenement houses for the poor. The diamonds belonging to (>er man empress are valued at $ 1,250,000. The crown jewels of England, largely made up of diamonds, exceed in value $15,000,000. The imperial crown alone contains 2,783 splendid diamonds. Be sides this the king and queen possess diamonds to the value of about a mil lion more dollars, which are their pri vate property. The crown Jewels of Russia represent about $20,000,000. No one knows just how much the diamonds possessed by the sultan of Turkey are worth, but they represent many mil lions. Many native princes in India own diamonds,,of great value. Ihe gems of the gaekwar of Baroda, consist ing largely of diamonds, are valued at $15,000,000. Among his treasures is a carpet made entirely of diamonds and pearls, all matched and blended. Many churches, too, in the old world are rich in diamonds. The largest diamond in the world, the Excelsior, found at Jag gersfonteln in 1893, is so valuable that a special syndicate has been formed to stand the expense and risk of cutting it. A large part of the world’s gold, too, Is locked away In the royal treasure houses in the form of dishes or orna ments. In the Kremlin are many great gold dishes so heavy that a strong man cannot lift them, and many millions of dollars’ worth of gold made into or namental form. The gold dinner serv ice at Windsor castle is valued at $4,(H)0,- 000, and a golden peacock, with Jeweled tall, there la valued at SIOO,OOO. In the treasure-house of the sultan at Constan tinople are tons of gold plate and great golden bowls filled to the brim with rare pearls. Gold in every form which the ingenuity of man has been able to Invent is scattered about in splendid con fusion in the palaces by the Bosphorus. The shah of Persia has golden orna ments and diamonds stowed away In his palace, whloh, turned into money, would enable him to build railroads and open up his country to civilization. AMERICAN INVESTMENTS. Large Sum* Placed in Mexico (or tbc Development l Immense lltjaourrei. When United States Consul General Barlow reported to the Washington gov ernment that |500,000,000 of American money was invested here, states the Mex ican Herald, local critics raised the ob jection that In reality this was in great part British capital, ahd that the “Americans were only figureheads In en terprises really owned across the At lantic.” If this were so, why do we find the London Statist, in its last issue to hand, saying that the measures for stabilizing the peso here “do not much concern us?” And the London paper continues: “Our government naturally will cooper ate with the United States government as far ns it possibly can do this as In other matters; but Ita Interest In the question excepting so far as we all desire to aid the United States where we can, is but small. The proposed change In China Is different. That is a matter in which British Interests are largely con cerned—quite as much concerned, evi dently, as American Interests.” The Statist Is a well-informed journal on British Investments abroad, and sure ly It would know if American Invest ments here were but another name for large placements of British capital. To Mexico It matters little whence comes the money required for the development of her Immense resources, although It lb to be said that the active participa tion of Americans In business undertak ings here tends to keep th two coun-* tries In close and friendly relations. Within a few weeks heavy Invest ments of American caj/tal have been made In Mexican mines, Investments Of really great sums of money, and though In one deal London 1s supposed to have an Interest the greater part of the funds employed have been raised In New York and other American cities. Otin. Nipolrou'a Decoration. The cross of St. Andrew, which the czar has just presented to Oen. Prince Louis Napoleon, has a very remarkable peculiarity attaching to it. All those who aro decorated with this order have the right once In their lives to demand a pardon for a Russian subject who has been condemned to death. The ungra cious part of this privilege Is that It by no means follows that the condemned man will be reprieved; but, at any rate, the poor wretch has a chance, for his case Is thus brought directly to the no tice of the czar, without the Intervention of any officials, and, unless t here Is some thing political about his crime, the probability Is that he will escape with his life.—London Sketch.

Duffy, of East Machias, Me., who claims to have discovered last year the secret, long lost, of tempering cop per, brass, lead and aluminum, now an nounces that he has invented anew dental metal, similar to that now used for casting molds for rubber plates and for crown and bridge work. For these purposes a metal is required that will both heat and cool quickly, and Duffy claims that his metal, while pos sessing that quality, can also be pro duced at about one-fourth the cost of the metal now in use. Local dentists have tried it and samples have been sent to dentists in Boston and New York, who report that It is entirely satisfactory. When Duffy announced last year that he had rediscovered the method of tem pering copper 4ie exhibited a hatchet, a razor and other Implements, which had fine and hard edges and which he de clared to be tempered copper. lie then invented a metal for journal bearings, which he claimed to he superior to Bab bitt metal and only about one-tenth as expensive. This metal was tried In saw mills at East Machias, and issald to have proved all that the Inventor claimed for it. Duffy says that a lumber mill owner In Minneapolis came to Machlas for the purpose of purchasing this invention, but that he declined to sell, or even en tertain an offer. He declares that none of his secrets Is for sale at any price, and, as he has no capital with which to place the inventions on the market, peo ple wonder, supposing all that he claims is true, what he expects to ac complish.
