Th President'! Salary and Emoluments,
The- presidential salary of twenty
five thousand dollars a year was fixed
by Congress when Washington was
President. Hut Washington declined
to tako It, and from patriotic and dis
interested motives yaw his lime to his
country mllioul compennation, requir
ing simply tlio payment of his necrs
tary expenses by the Government. It
is difficult in those sordid day.4 to find
a man who can riso to any adequate
conception even of tlio elevated patri
otism nud disinterestedness of Wash
ington. Inasmuch as tlio - Government pro
vides nnd keeps up a ftirnlthtd houtc
fur tlio President to livo in, and pays
tlio chief part of tlio expenses of tho
house, tho President of tlio United
StatvM would altogether bo tho best
paid officer In tho country with a sal
ary fixed nt ten thoutnnd dollars a
year. "Hut thcro has always liecn a
disposition In Congress to exalt tho
nflico of President by a profuso lavish
of money on it. And although tho
salary remained for many years t
$2tf,06O a year, yet tlio emoluments
were from timo to timo increased un
til tho minimi oxponscs of tho-Kxccu-tive
Mansion reached about sixty
thousand dollars. And in 1873, tho
President's salary was increased to
830,000 a jear, without any reduction
in his emoluments. This excessive
iucrcoM) of tho salary and emoluments
of the President cannot bo accounted
for on any other ground than n dis
position to exalt him, as far as practi
cable, into tho dignity of a king,
"Tho natural tncfiiaffon of man
kind to kingly government," men
tioned by Dr. Prankliu, arises from
ono of the weakest traits of tlio human
mind, that of hero worship, wholly

Tied Him Wrong.
lien. Selby, of Ilipyvillo, recently
purchased a boree for his own use, but
beforo closing the trade ho asked the
owner of tho bono if ho would jump.
"Yes," replied the hnrso man, "he's n
great jumper; but if you tie a hickory
witho around his neck right tight, he
wont try to jump.''
Tho trade was closed, and Hen.
took his now purchaso homo with him.
Ho cut a hickory withe, tied It around
his horse's neck, and turned him out
to graze. When ho was tired of his
confinement, ho walked up to a toler
ably high fence, throw up tho yoke
nnd jumped it clear,' much to Pens
astonishment and disappointment.
Within n few dnys Ben. met the
gentleman from whom he had pur
chased the horse, and told him about
the animal jumping tho fenco.
"That's strange," said the sharp
liorso trader; "did you tio tho hickory
witho around his neck as I told you?"
"Yes," said Ben.; "but ho walked
up to tho fence, throw up his head
nnd loped right over."
"What! Did you cut the withe?"
"Why, of course I did."
"Well, that accounts for it. If you
had left it growing iu the ground, as
you ought to havo done, ho wouldn't
havo tried to jump."
Ben. saw the point, and realizing
that ho was beaten, he resolved to
make the best of his trade. He knows'
now how to prevent, n horso from
jumping, nud recommends the remedy
to nil bis friends who havo jumping
horses. Anderson News.

A Project to Pipe Cat Two Hundred and Fifty
A company of well known capital
ists have organized tho "Gas Light
Transportation Company," to mino
coal and manufacture gas in Pennsyl
vania, and pipe tho gas to Eastern
cities. A director of the company re
cently said that they propose to erect
gas works that will manufacture 40,
000,000 feet of gas per day. This
would requiro 1,400,000 tons of coal
annually. The coal can bo bought at
the mines for 55 cents per ton, but the
gas companies pay $4.G2 per ton lor
it. They save something by tho sale
of coke, tar, and ammonical liquor, so
that their coal costs them $3.14 per
ton, or .12 cents a thousand cubie feet
of gas manufactured. Ono great saving
expected by the new company is the
cost of coal and in the transportation.
Another saving will come, they thiuk,
from tho freshness of the coal, since
coal newly mined produces more and
better gas than coal that has been ex
posed to the air and weather. The
cost ot pumping the gas is oflset by
by the value of the coal. Tho deter
ioration of gas in tho long pipe they
expect to counterbalance by making
tho gas extra rich a first. The pipo
is to bo of iron, six ieet in diameter,
laid in hydraulic cement.
