If a man will "pay as he goes" he m is almost certain to have enough money w to bring him home again. The great trouble with men is that ic they are not relavant. Some men never a get to the subject under discussion, •V some never arrived, at the age they live In. They are living anachronisms, It - ■ — ■■■■■■ It is announced that the McKinley P campaign will begin in Ohio about the e first of August. The wicked Democrats f are preparing quotations from the Me Kinley prophesies, especially from the J prophesies he made concerning silver. e He had the same ideas about the silver a industry that he had abont the tin plate k Industry. They are preparing also to p exhibit pictures of High Priest McKinley n consecrating that tin plate mill at Piqua I The nictnres will represent the mill be t fore and after. This sort of campaign I ing will not prevent McKinley from V repeating bis same old speeches. J seems too stolid to receive an idea but * the people will enjoy the fun. • The work of the City Council In count j ing ont James M. Griffin was not unex t pected, as it was not fair or honorable As ^ an investigation it was a farce So far as t justice was concerned, or, to write j carefully, so far as justice might have i been concerned if it btd been thought ' of, the investigation was a travesty lu 1 many respects the City Council, its work f and its energy is regarded with a just I contempt, but that ought not to be J the ease. The men who sit In Council to dlstribnte a half million 1 dollars of the people's money might, be , dignified aud fair without losing any j party influence, bnt on the contrary they I would gain influence for tbemselvcH and ; recommend their party. It is not a good start for any legislative body that it be gins to build np its majority on pretexts and technicalities. It is a bad start when that is done without a full and fair Investigation and indubitable proof. Of the 4,500,000 ounces of silver re quired to be purchased by the Treasury Department this month, under the Sher man law, only 138,000 ounces have thus far been bought. Of course this failure to comply promptly with the law is but another evidence of the conspiracy against silver which makes "the friends of silver," who are by a curious coinci dence the owners of silver and^their friends, weep. They feel assured that the country will go to the dogs, if the price of silver is not maintained. The tin plate fanatics aud speculators 'feel Just as fall of weeps, and there are local indications that the patent leather trade will begin a weep industry. It is very sad, bnt really we cannot see how the country can go on nursing these greedy infants. There sre so many of them ami they are so hungry, and so fat aud strong that they are likely to clean out the pantry if thev'are not checked. Of couise they will blubber like fat boobies of hi ej tX He or mon* The fallacy that the government (which is the people) should go into Industries as a sileut, losing partner, ha worked incalculable harm ■ ■ ' :i. It prompts the inquiry now: What will Congress , .,do? Congress really has nothing to do with your trade or any trade. It is not the business of Congress to say what trade shall follow. one man or another man Congress could not do that wisely ; it would not do it honestly or fairly. If Con gress has been assisting some industries, it has been assisting them at the pense of other industries or at the pense of the whole people has no property; it caunot bestow benefits upon one man or any set of without depriving another another set of ex ex Congress any men man or men of a greater amount of property, hence It is matter into what condition the no pro tooted, panper induatries assert that they will be cast, they cannot claim any aid from Congress which will not rob other industry of a greater arnouut than they will loge by standing on their own bottoms. some It is a blessed thing to have sense. common sense. It is still more blessed to kave a calm mind and a sweet temper ; for without them even the rare and generous endowment of »carcely gets a chance to show itself in » man's Bpeech and acts. If there ia atiy juality an editor loves among his readers, t is a few stray scintillations of horse That is a reader who reads what common sense tense. • actually written with spirit and under itanding—a reader who does not put >n bleared and crossed glasses and try jo read something that is not written, mt that he wished had been written, ind then get mad at the editor as if he written some of the wronff leaded reader's imaginary rot that the alitor is Incapable of thinking much We admire a mau teas of writing vbo thinks clearly aud talks straight t is tiresome to bother with vbo cannot talk straight because he This little a man oos not think straight. ut*y does not apply to any particul *an bnt many a man will silently pu he cap on and scowl at bis wife for . little while, as if something had t- . . . ,, , JOfyok kirn, after reading it We aie wry for the wives of such men. Ti e ■ r wives, too, nave many reasons to be sorry that their husbands have not more sense—more calmness of mind and a sweeter temper. It may be true, as the men in the pro tected industries say. that they cannot compete with the pauper labor of Europe without reducing the American working men to a state of pauper labor here. They think they know best, their profit and loss account and their balance sheets, which are private, and we have nothing by which to determine whether their private business would be profitable without a public bonus, not. Nobody in the world can deter mine that point but themselves. It is principle of law that no man la a com potent witness, even, in his own case, much less a competent judge. Wit nesses and judges must always be disinterested,to be in one case just, in the other case reliable. Those who are They have or enjoying the benefits of protection are not competent witnesses or just judges— they will testify and decide for them selves, them : But we have just this to say to If after thirty, fifty and one hundred years of dependent infancy they are not ready now to take the superior and linequaled American laborer with the inapproachable American machinery and compete with the crude machinery aud pauper labor of Europe and Asia, they are not fit fortbelr business, they are not fit even to live in this country. They can take their pauper shops, their timid policies, and go back to Europe with them. We are better without them. This la a country for freedom aud free men. It is difficult to begin to estimate the evils that will continue to follow the legislation of the declining Republican party lu its last violeut, desperate efforts of despair to retain power. It lost all moral sense in the efforts of despair to retain office. Among many bad pieces of legislation was the ad mission of those six Northwestern states in 1890 simply to keep a Republican majority in the Ssnate have small populations and are insig uific&nt in all other respects, but they furnished eighteen votes In the Senate Commenting on this feature of political scheming in the_ desperate days of a declining party the New York Sun says: The seven silver prodneing states Colorado, Idaho Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and South Dakota. They cast, at the late election, oollec tlvely, 404,992 votes. If to them we add the votes of North Dakota and Wy lug, 52,824 in all, governed by similar political conditions and sympathizing with the neighboring pro ailver states, we have a tot al of 457,810. ate is composed of eighty-eight, members. The total vote of the people at the late election numbered 12,008,595. the basis of representation identical In each at ate, ei ch senator would stand for But these nine states, instead of having only four senators, as their population might justify, actualy have eighteen ; and It is on account of this undue representation, for which the Republicans are directly accounta ble, that the silver men are so strong in the Senate. This is another phase of the censnre for the determination of the party to carry the country aud re-elect Mr Har rison. The leaders were not only will ing to pass the Sherman Silver Purchase bill, bnt they were willing to add votes to the Senate by bringing in thinly popu lated territories. Those states are om The Sen Were 137,000 votes. DOWN WENT M'GINTY TO THE SECOND IN THE THIRD. Down went McOInty to the Second in the '1 bird. And he voted you may bet.

Harris. tord Derby owl Mr. Gladstone. * Wo have lost a great intelligence in Bord Derby—a great intelligence, per haps, rather than a great intellect. For we fancy there is a Blight difference of Signification between the two. For ex ample, it would bo hard to imagine minds more different in their constitu tion than Lord Derby's and Mr. Glad stone's. Lord Derby's pure intelligence was in many respects much the wider af the two. impartial vision both what was not to fcis mind and what was, but the result was that he often, especially in early life, rather chilled t"an attracted the sympathy of those whom he ad dressed. IIis light was eminently dry light, cold light—almost at times bleak light. Ho seemed to say, "This is my view, and so far as I can judge the complete view, but if you cannot follow me that is no business of mine, and 1 am quito indifferent whether you agree with me or not." Mr. Gladstone's attitude of mind is al most as unlike ns it can be. Ho seldom gives the impression of atiy detachment at all. He is eager, vehement, playful, persuasive, sympathetic, in the highest sense impressive. He is nothing less than impartial on any subject into which he enters with his whole mind, but ho makes yon forget tiffs in the charm of his invitation to agree with him. Lord Derby's argumentative shots were what nro technically termed "chilled shots" as compared with Mr. Gladstone's. If those shots did their work, they did it with a certain ostentations frigidity as to the effect.—London Spectator. He saw with much more They Had Never Seen Roses. Two ladies, managers, came into a school the other morning shortly after it had opened. One of them wore a beau tiful jacqueminot rose, on which the eyes of tho vvholo school were at once turned admiringly. Noting this, the owner of the flower gave it to one of the teachers for the children. "Now, children, how many of yon know what tiffs is?" asked the young lady, holding np the flower. Nearly ev ery little one shook his head to indicate ignorance. One small boy and a couple of little girls piped out with great importance; "It's a posie, please, ma'am." But no one had ever heard of a rose. Most of the children had never seen one before. The flower was passed along and small noses lingered longingly over its fragrance, while dirty little palms patted its velvet petals caressingly. No one saw or thongbt of anything that morning but tho rose. The teacher put it in a glass of water to preserve it, and when school was dismissed each child was rendered supremely blissful by the gift of a tiny petal. As they filed out of the door each little waif clutched his treasure tightly in his small hand, while he murmnred softly to himself tho name, "Pitty woBO, pitty wose.''—Pittsburg Chronicle. An Adjective That Pleased. Thore is a mode of speech which may be termed euphemistic by those who are fond of "calling a spade a spade," but is it not rather the natural expression pf the charity which never faileth? To-say tho best of others is a manifest duty, and to do it in tlio prettiest language eh hances it wonderfully'. And where de fects exist that are commented on by the unfortunate possessor in that ill judged fashion Which attempts to as sume indifference to the imperfections how deftly may tho confidante turn the current of self depreciation into a smooth er channel by "a nice derangement ef epitaphs." A young girl bewailed her thinness in the hearing of a man of tact, who instantly exclaimed: "Thin! YV'hy, yon are ethereal!" Possibly no sermon that this courtly clergyman ever preached was more im mediately productive of good results than his well chosen adjective. His hearer, delighted with the synonym, which involved no sacrifice of truth, but which gave it a more attractive present ment, resolvod thenceforth so to choose hor words as to present realities in their most fnvorable light, and to make truth palatable instead of a hard, bitter and in digestible morsel.—New York Recorder. 11 «Mr He Dined.

It is well enough for every man to keep for himself some cool and shady places where he may rest, but the more he can live openly, and if he is a public man the more frank nnd unreserved he can make his relations with other people, the better it is for him, nnd if he is worth knowing the bet ter it is for the other people too.—Har per's Weekly.

The» Vienna rvuple'i Kitchen. As a general rule, the cost of any given article depends on the quantities in which it is manufactured, and to this rule cooked food is no exception. The smaller the scale on which the business of a restaurant is conducted the higher must be the keeper's charges if he is to extract a living out of it for himself. Where much larger quantities of food are cooked ut the same time, the cost of their preparation becomes diminish ed to a mere fraction of that of the raw ma terial, and charges can be lessened accord ingly. The success which has attended an exper iment of this kind is notably instanced by the ''Volksküchen," or "people's kitchens," which have been established in Vienna. It shows the exceedingly low prices at which food can be supplied where the demand is large and steady, and thus furnishes us with a basis for practical calculations. At tlio "people's kitchens" no fewer than from 40,000 to 60,000 meals, ample and ex cellent, are prepared daily. The price of a dinner consisting of soup, meut, bread, vegetables, pudding and coffee, with fruit or cheese, is about 3, 1 j pence in English money. A breakfast of coffee, vegetable soup, bread, ham and eggs may be had for 2 pence. A sup per of cold meat, bread, vegetables and pud ding, with tea or coffee, costs 2)4 pence. The large consumption of food, which allows it to bo bought in cheap markets, is of course one of tho causes enabling the establish ments to maintain such low prices. A more important cause is to lie found in the per fection of their organization and manage ment.—National Kcview. The Feat of an Episcopalian HUhop. It may safely bo asserted that not one of his episcopal brethren lias ever performed such a feat as formed an episode in the early life of the bishop of Norwich. After serv ing a couple of years as curate under Dr. Hook at Leeds, Mr. Sheepshanks went out to British Columbia in 18511, when that col ony was a far wilder anil more isolated' count ry than now. Ho did eight years of rougii work, and then determined to come home for a holiday at all events, electing t i travel via Japan und China, in those days n by no means familiar route. For mouths he disappeared entirely from mortal ken, and his family began to entertain Berious misgivings as to his fate. Oneevening a young Cambridge man, aft erward head master of a well known gram mar school, but tutor for the nonce to a Russian prince, was smoking a cigarette in his rooms in St. Petersburg when his serv ant announced that a moujik wanted to see him very urgently. Tho unknown visitor was shown up and appeared in the well worn garb from which Brian O'Lynn de rived his simple but practical saitorial no tion*. To his host's utter bewilderment this uncouth being addressed him in re fined English niul presently explained that hownsa brother Cantab desirous of secur ing his good offices.

Tlio Physician mid the Puttent. Tho physician was young; so was the pa tient. The Case was strange. None of the symptoms corresponded with any known disease. The physician was perplexed. He curne every day. The patient grew worse. Nothing seemed of the least use. Presently the physician began to suspect something. Tlio troulilo was mental perhaps—of the heart perhaps. He watched and waited. His suspicions grew stronger. At last he charged the patient with the thing. "I be lieve," lie said, "that there is nothing in tho world the matter with you, but that you are in love." With blushes and tears the pat ieut confessed that this aud nothing else was devouring her, so that sho was growing worse and worse daily. "Awl does the man know?" "Alas!" she "Can "Will you tell She replied, "he does not even suspect, you tell him?" "Never, me, then? I might at least advise, hung her head and hesitated. "Come," he said, with kindly encouragement, "tell me all; make a clean breast of it. It will do you no harm and mny do you good. Besides, a physician is a father confessor." "Since you have asked me," she replied with some confusion, "come tomorrow! Then perhaps—if I can—1 will tell you." On tlie morrow he arrived.
