THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY.
Tuesday, July 29, 1879. Conciliating a Male. The hoy were sluing around on the barrels tnd boxes in the rear of Deacon Exekiel Hengrove's store, telling mule lories, characterized by all the antrum meiea range or Hyperbole and vigorous and varied expletives, which usually im part so vivid an interest to this class of anecdotes. The credibility of the reci tals was noticeably in inverse ratio to tne nnmoer ann variety or sacred, pro lane, or holly imaginary personages and objects apiiealed to in evidence of the exact and unimpeachable truth of the narrative. whopper about a mule he once had, that got a lair chance at his colored driver, and with one kick sent him flying fifty feet through the air, never touching the ground once till bis head struck the Bide of the house, about three yards from the ground, and went through clapboards and plastering, making a hole just like a cannon-ball. Pete was voted the cham pion of the evening, when a sedate, mid die-aged man, who had hitherto sat si lent in a corner, assiduously spitting at a knot-hole in the floor, said he rather guessed he could beat that. Go ahead," said everybody. M,Twas "long in the fall of '67," said the stranger, deliberately removing his "chaw" from his cheek, and laying it on the corner of the stove, "that me an Bill Uevnolda had a ion or hnildin a bridge at Judsonville, Iowa. We had to baul our stuff fur about a dozen mile ; the roads was jest awful, I tell yer, an' what him an' me didn't git to feno about mules after we was through wa'n't worm Knowin. we baa one or me . gol-darneJest, all-firedeat, most dead-set and contrairie8t critters or the mule per mules, and then agin I hove seen mules, but this feller bad the longest ears, and the heaviest kick, and the ugliest temper of any son of a jack as ever got him, but It u d have paid me a . mighty sight better to have took him out and perforated his pericardium, ' as them coroners would say, nor to try an - work him. The boys called him Andy Johnson, which was President then, ef ye rememner, ana every ooay leastways . . W . . a 1 t t Aia. 3 every Kepuoucan saia me name nuea the critter fust rate. He pretty soon bad the whole under section uv his derned bide looking like a burnt prairie, fur we need op more bay nor he ever ate, trail- din fires underneath trim, to encourage bim. Thar was just one way to start bim to a right lively gait, and that waa to make believe you wanted bim to stop by yelling, 'Whoa, Andy !' Then he'd Vtnll rt! a aA adt itt!l wvyn'l eon 'G lang, tbar !' That stopped bim sure, BImeby, though, be tumbled to the rack et, and saw how we had fooled him, fur mules has more sense in some things nor some folks will allow, and then yoa couldn't regulate his movements nohow. He d Jest meander along as it salted him. It was awful hard to keep a teamster. One was killed, another bad three ribs broke, and the next man drove him two days, and then resigned, with' out atoppln' to ax fur his pay. So I bad to take hold myself. me and my part ner, and do the best we could One day, " about a week after, when we'd come to one of our regular stand stills in the .road (they generally lasted about two or three hours), an we .waa labonn with htm, my partner twistin' his left ear, an me lsyin onto bim, from a safe dis tance, with a eaplin about a inch thick, an old, solemn-lookin galoot seemed like a played-out preacher or sutbin' come 'long, an sz be, 'My frien', don't you know it a very wrong an' wicked to treat a useful animal, the men an com ' panion uv man, in that barbarous man ner r 'Sho r sea I, 'your mind ia wa verln', I guess. You're crazy ; the idea of a derned mule, the thing's too re diclua.' Then I took a fre6h holt on the aaplin', and Bill be gin the ear another twist, an we was settlin right down ter business agin, when the stranger come up an1 laid his band onto my arm, an' . sea, 'Hold ! I beg uv you, I plead with you, not to barm this poor dumb critter.

'Tbis is tbe kind uv gruel tbat a mule habitually ' requires sez I, bittin' tbe cussed brute 1 a wback that echoed back from tbe bill, about balf t mile off. 'That's the gruel we provide for 'em.

'But,1 sez be, ' 'why not gently lead him - by kindness, woo bim to complete bis task by sym pathy, instead of cruel blows ? And then be gin me a pamvblit with a pictur of a abr.angel with a sword p intiu to a feller tbat was whalin' blazes outen a horse that couldn't draw about four ton cp the aide of a hill. .'That's all fair an' right etiuff,' si z I.

He went right up to that mule, and commenced rubbin' down bis nose an' straightenin' out his ear, say in', 'Poor old mule! good mulef in a kinder sootbin way.

"Killed him, of coarse J" "How far did he kick him ?" "Well, .so on, eo on !" were the various exclamations that broke from the intensely interested cir cle of listeners. "W-e-l-l, no, gentlemen," resumed the speaker. "He didn't kill. him. In fact. didn't kick at all. Aa T was savin'.

Phillips Thompson. DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. REPLACE NATIONAL ItANK NOTES WITH LEG AL TENDERS. The following platform waa adopted Jane 4, m: Rksolved That the Democracy of Ohio de mand free and fair elections, and to that end denounce all Interference with eleotlons by the military power; that the experience of this and other countries has abundantly proved that the presence of troops at the polls Is destructive of freedom of eleotlons and Is incompatible with the exlstenoe of free Institutions; that the laws enaeted by Congress whloh, under the pretense of regu lating the manner of Congressional eleotlons Interfere with the eleotion of State officers and overthrow the laws of the SU'.e govern ing the oholoe of snob, offloers are unoonstltu". tional, and for that reason ought to ba re pealed; that they are also instramentalitles of fraud, force and corruption, by whloh the parly In power uses the money of the people to oorrupt, and thousands of Irresponsible of ficers to harass and eoeroe the voters and es pecially : by force and fraud to deprive our naturalised oitisens of the riant to vote, ana for these reasons also said laws ought to be immediately repealed. n an. - a f i i t nsn i M80LT1D. inw impartial junei .o Hi... it,. n.mtinn nf iutt: that no man oan be secure la his person or prop erty when the Juries are paoked and controu- ed by the Government for despotic and par- una purposes; iuv uuuot u i w.i.i Laws now In existence Janes nay be ana have been so packed and controlled, and that the highest interests of justioe and free gov ernment require that the laws be changed so as to secure fair, impartial and independent furies in the Federal Courts. BiaoLVio that the Republican minority ... in Congress, by refusing to vote supplies to maintain the Government unless the ma on L..nM . to ... o( tr00I)i . the polls, and also to the maintenance of the unconstitutional, corrupting, violent and un- lust Eleotion Laws aforesaid; and the Pros! dent or the United States, by his unpreoe dented nse of the veto power in order to tenefuate said laws, and the use of armed men at the soils, has shown a spirit ef fao tion and a devotion to party snooess Instead of the welfare of the oountry and the preser vation of Its Constitution and liberties that demand the condemnation of the whole Amerioan people. ' Resolved. That President Hayes, by his frequent interposition of the veto in order to defeat legislation that was plainly cons ma tional, that In no way interfered with the in dependence of any other department of the Government and bad received the most ma ture' consideration of Congress, has shown an titter disreeard of the considerations and principles that induced the insertion of the veto power in the Constitution, and a like disreeard of the wishes and welfare of the people. ... . . v. , Esaoivrn. Tbat we declare a as tne sense ef the Democracy of Ohio that not a dollar should be appropriated by Congress to pay soldiers, Marshals, Deputy Marshals or 8u. rervisors of Eleotion to Interfere witb or control elections. " Besolved. That the efforts of the Bepub. lican party to open and keep alive the war feeline between the North and South, are to be condemned by every lover of his country. Besoltbd. That wo reaffirm the flnanoial principles heretofore advocated by the Demo cratic party of Ohio that the issue of mon ey in any form , and tne regulation tnereor, belong to the General Government alone.and ought not to be delegated or Intrusted to in. dividuals or corporations; tnat we therefore oppose the perpetuation of . the present National Banking system as a means of con trol over the enrrenoy of the country, and demand the gradual substitution of Treasury notes for National Bank currency, to be made receivable for all dues, and a legal ten der equally with coin such ttovernment Is. sues to be regulated on principles estab lished by legislation or organic law so as to secure the greatest possible stability of val ue. Besolved. That after changing the valua Hon of all property from the scale of paper money, by which the heavy burden of debts now resting upon the people were uo ura uw v a "Mft "kv vvvv w nwvi created, to the former level of gold and sil-1 ver, and that the change then made in the metaiuo stanaara liseii oy tne aemoneusa tion of silver was a monstrous fraud upon the people, cunningly devised in the inter est ot the holders of bonds, that ahould be condemned as in violation of every prinolple of honest dealing, and a covert assault upon the fundamental rights of property, and we, therefore, demand the full restoration of sil ver to its orginal place as a money metal,the same as gold. Kisolvbd. That the rapid increase of th interest bearing debt of the Government under the present Administration ought to excite the serious apprehension of the peo ple. We demand that the further inorease in the bonded debt in time of peaoe be stopped, and it be put In process of extlno tion.- . . Bisolved. That the attack made upon the State Legislation, the Republican platform, ia wholly undeserved, and that the Legisla ture in its arduous word of codifying the laws of the State, in the redaotion of fees and salaries of County offloers, and the pas sage of a law to protect the ballot and pre vent bribery at elections, deserve the com' mendation of the people of the State. Bbsolvbd. That it is the duty of our Gov- ernment to maintain to its fullest extent the doctrine that a man may in good faith change his habitation and beoome a citizen of any other oountry. We should protect in every part of the world all our naturalised oit aens, as we would our native-born, and should resist all Improper claims upon him by Governments to whioh they no longer owe aurgiauoe. rr s aemana tnat exwuug vra. ties with all foreign Governments be rigidy enforced, and that early steps be taken to obtain from the German Empire' a fuller recognition of the right of expatriation and of tbe right of our naturalised citixens re. turning or having property there by a modi fication of the treaty existing between us, SMALL FAVORS. Self-praise depreciates. The jest that gives pain is no jett. Other men's pains are easily borne. Fray devoutly and hammer on stout- He who wants ' little has always enough. Keep your mouth shut and your eyes open. Lay a bridge of silver for a flying ene my. A bad cloak often covers a good drinkur.' . Faint not under the perils or trials of the way. Vice flows'into palaces as the rivers into the sea. . When a thing is once begun it is al most balf finished. Impatience dries the blood sooner than age or sorrow. ' As the blood is purified by water, so is the soul purified by truth. . The Reasons Why. Somebody a crusty old bachelor, of course, inquires why, when Eve was manufactured of a spare rib, a servant was not made at the same time to wait on her ? Somebody else a woman we imagine replies in the following strain : "Because Adam never came whining to Eve with a ragged stocking to be darn ed, collar string to be sewed on, or a glove to mend,'rightaway quick now!' Because he never read the newspapers until the sun got down behind the palm trees, and stretching out, yawned out, 'Is not supper most ready, my dear?' Not he. He made the fire and hung the kettle over it himself, and we will ven ture to say, pulled the radishes, peeled the potatoes, and did every thing else he ought to do. He milked the cows, fed the chickens, and looked after the pias himself, and he never brought home half a aozen mends to dinner when Eve aaun i tresn pomegramtes. tie never stayed out till eleven o'clock to a politi cal meeting, hurrahing for an out-and out candidate, and then scolding because poor iive was siting up and crying in side the gates. He never played bil liards, rolled ten-pins, and drove fast horses, nor choked Eve with cigar smoke. He never loafed around corner groceries while Eve was rocking little Cain's cradle at home. In short he did not think that she was especially created for the purpose of waiting on him, and he had no idea that it would disgrace him to lighten Eve's cares a little. That is the reason why Eve did not need hired girl, and from it may be inferred the reason why her fair descendants do." Woman at Work. Women are extreme in all points. They are better or worse than men. Human life is everywhere a state in which much is to be endured Every child walks into existence through the golden gate of love. The miles of heaven are few and short and the glorious end will soon come. Surely half the world must be blind : thev can sea noth no- unless t o tters - If a dunctt is short of some faults, he only did not know how to acquire them Virtue pardons the wicked, as a san dal tree perfume8 the ax lhat gtrike8 it SCHOOLS.
