With tho public inouoy raised by tuxntion? That money does not belong to members of Congress. Thoy havo no right to givo it away. They nro solemnly sworn to appropriate it only to certain specified purposes; nnd thoy nre trustees for thoso purpose alone. To pay it out for tho gratification of a sentiment, whether, that sentiment bo charity or admiration, is almost ns bad as to np proprialo it corruptly. Nothing can bo worse, nothing moro flagrantly op posed to the true principles of Feder al legislation, than this misappropria tion of tho means provided by law for tho support of tho Government, 1 for no other purpose. New uu. ' ,t. certain A Striking Incident. An English actress, passing along a street 'J no day, heard singing. Sho looked iu an open door upon a littlo pruyor-mcetiiig ami caught tho words: "Ifcpllmf iucicjI cenlt Ik, Mercy illll rrsemd furine?" Sho entered, listened awhile, then went nway, but the hymn went with her. She becamo n christian, nnd de termined to leavo the stage, but tho manager would not release her from fulfilling her engagement. The Inst night sho played with uuustial brillian cy, and, nt tho close, was called beforo the curtain. Her contract was dis charged; sho had no master now but Christ. Standing there, with clasped bauds nnd streaming eyes, sho snug: "Ueptliof uierrj'cin It I, Marcjr dill resetted for ine?

He had been absent a year, tho youngest pupil at tho boys school, and now bis mother was expecting him every day, and she went almut, proud nnd happy, telling her friends of his improvement in his studies, and nlwajfl ending with his being such a good biy. Then camo n telegram from Willio himself, tho first real nits sage he had ever tent how funny it seemed, from that baby nnd thero was just this simple form, "Meet me in tho morning." His mother went about all day with it iu her hand, reading It over ns if it had been in the child's own hiind-writiiig. Then sho smiled to henclf as sho pasted It carefully in a scrap book, whilo some body suggested framing it, to bang over tho mantel. Hut nil the friends loved Willie; ho was tho only don of his mother nnd sho was a widow and ho did not come thnt morning! Thcro camo instead, tho dread naws of hasty illness, nnd his mother hurried to her darling boy, but it was too latel Tho dcspoiler hnd done his work ho wns breathing out Ids littlo life iu tho sleep froni which ho never would fully awaken hern. Only once, toward tho last, ho unclosed his eyes swiftly and saw tho Jciir tnother-faco bending over him, mid murmured with dry, husky lips: "Meet mo in the morning, mnmmn."

Tho magistates should havo nothing to do either with the election of school commissioners or with any fiscal mat ter. Our county court system is do fectivo in this respect. Tho fiscal matters of n county should be mauag udbythe county judge, nud two or four county commissioners elected by tho people for that purposo nlone, who should manage tho disbursements, seo to the roads and all such details as comes beforo the court of claims. Tho magistrates should hive no other du tics than t' dispense justice, and should be selected with solo referenco to their capacity for this high' function. As for the school commissioner, wo seo no reaion why tho county judge should not. perform nil his duties for which ho could bo compensated by nn in crease in liis salary. Frankfort Yoo man. A Bjston tramp appealed to a man of generous instincts tho other day for ten coots to save him from starving. IIo had not hnd a mouthful to cat sinco beforo tho war, nnd tho memory of tho mint did not run back to tho timo when ho last enjoyed n night's sleep, "ity friend, I am sorry," said the person accosted, taking from his pocket u silver dillnr, hut this is tho smallest piece I have." ''Oh, never mind," said tho tramp nonchalantly, possessing himself of tho coin, "I can change it," whereupon he counted out ninety cents from his pocket, and went on his way rejoicing. Gr R, .A.

Tho Frankfort correspondent of tho Louisvillo Commercial writes of the lobby at Frankfort, nnd describes its mode of operation: Nobody who knows anything of legislation would accuso n member of being bribed by theso men. Of course it is not im possible to bribe n legislator, but tho thing is reached in a different way. Your sensible lobbyist would no more think of oficring a Kentucky gentle man a bribe than he would of running his hand in tho fire. He goes nt it in a much ditlerent way. He gives n wiue supper. IIo has excellent cigars. IIo gets on n high old druuk with a doubtful man, aud they paint the town red together. He is n good anecdote teller, none better, and tho first thing your member knows he is voting for a bill he at first bitterly opposed. This, of course, refers to the average mem ber. m The sun glints fell with a hectic flush upon his cream-colored pants. From a neighboring pond camo tho deep croaking of the frogs.
