We have, no doubt, a fe-v statesmen now of equal brain power, but they are lacking in moral courage tbey deem it safer to follow the people than to lead them.

If it were not so, congress would agree on a commission from both partis to frame a tariff bill and a silver bill that would give tbe natiog peace, and take these great national question out of partisan politics. As It Is now, on party lays to the other, we will oppose anything you advocate. Tbe reflecting, conservative people everywhere are not only tired, but despairing.

Ing of Carthago, for aa much lund as could tie incited by a bull' hide. All tribes belonging to the infancy of civi lisation have like peculiar modes ot reckoning. t rom point near the mouth of the Mlunil river extends, northwest through Indiana, a boundary known a the ten-o clock line. This la one limit uf an Indian grant hen the tribe had agreed to cede portion of their territory to the whites, a meeting was held for the purpose of marking out the ground. A surveyor was present, and had mounted hi compass and telescope on a triood. The head man'of the tribe wentup to the instruments, stared steadily at them for awhile, grunted, and returned to the circle about the council tire. Not a word was spoken by anyone. rioon another Indian rose, walked se dately to the Instruments, gravely ex- ainined them, granted, and returned to his place by the Are. This example was lollowert by half a dozen others, after which a short consultation waa held. The chief then approached the white men. That whul Indian know," he said drawing a small circle on the ground with a stick. "That what white man know," he continued, drawing a larger circle outside the first "This what nobody know," pointing to what lay without the lost circle. "White man know that" he went on ndicating the Instruments. "Indian not know it. Indian know the aun. dim never cheat Iliin always same lllm throw shadow. Indian give white man land one side. After long consultation, it was de cided that a line drawn in the direc tion in which the sun wonld cast a shadow from an agreed point at ten o'clock should be made the boundary, the white man taking the land on one ide and the Indians keeping that on the other. The other boundaries of the conces sion were those of the original terri tory of the tribe, supplemented by water courses and other objects. Such lines have been frequently used in concluding bargains with the red men, and have become known as teu o'clock lines. Youth's Companion.
