Jle swung' his hoad In dazed surprise; My bullet crashed betwixt his eyes. I took from h!m his groat domain, Connecting turquoise eky with plain; Aye, canyon, crest and pinion shade. The bowldered pass, the valleyed glade All thia from hl possession tore And get my heel, a conqueror! I stripped his skin for my renown, Uefore my fireplace laid it down. Within four narrow walla 'tis spread Ihat eye may gloat and foot may tread. A hero I, In wide belief; X knqw that am but a thief. Edwin I Sabln, some? Is there the slightest me mory of a something "afterwards?" If the mind, soul, spirit or whatever name you choose for the ego is the life giving principle in place of mere brain, can that imyerceivable some thing be quickened to action by the cardiac stimulation or, in other words, by the mere timely, scientific pressure of that piece of matter called heart. 1 questioned a person, a beleiver, for an opinion on th latest discovery and there came the usual reply, "1 don't belelve it the men were not dead etc." Why not beleive it? Why relegate himself to the days when witchcraft was the religious accusation against every employment of science in its most I infantile form? I found my reason answering that this person, in spite of learning and wit and experience was one of the thousands to whom right was not right honor not honor, for themselves alone, but for fear and cringing hope of hell and heaven. Twenty minutes dead permanent restoration, mark you, and not i. word of a beyond! I find myself wishing that Ingersoll were the vic tim or subject and afterwards I could hear his views and deduc tions. So if resuscitation is truly rendered oossible and actual who scores : 'I sent my soul through the invisible 5ome letter of that after-life to spell: And by and by my soul returned to me, nd answered "I myself am heaven and hell."

POINT OF VIEW. The Indianapolis correspondent rho visits Hammond wonders how anybody can live in Hammond. All one has to do is to ride 45 minutes north to wonder how anybody can live in Indianapolis. The trouble with the Indianapolis visitor is that when tie is here he thinks that the whole world is south of him. Governor Deneen is satisfied that he has driven all the baseness of the southern end of Cook county over into Indiana and Governor Hanly is equally satisfied that he has unloaded the troubles of the north end of Lake county on Illi nois. We are inclined to believe that Governor Hanly has the more reason to be content but he cannot prove it by us that most of the Sun day lawlessness of West Hammond, just over the state line, is not con tributed by residents of Hammond proper. A worklngman, resident of Hammond, Ind., who is disposed to be decent and lawabiding six days in the week is inclined to "cut loose" when he crosses the state line into the territory "where everything goes." He is eelzed with the same desire as the soldier who is deprived of his beer within the fort. If he cannot get what he wants under official regulations, he will scramble for what is infinitely worse when he crosses the confines of the fort or barracks. What may be mild dis sipation at home, is turned into vio lent debauchery away from It Governor Hanly has given Hammond "a clean Sunday" but he is fatten ing the kennels and deadfalls that bloom across the line and when the victim of Sunday license returns With hja load and his bruises, we have to take care of him. Of course this is none of Gov. Hanly's business. IF RESUSCITATION IS POSSIBLE, WHAT THEN? OS fc V. J t4 Wealthy Men Are Agencies For Good. By United States Senator WILLIAM A.

Duluth News- Tribune. Guess you forgot Wm. R. Hearst. Somebody has been mean enough to spoil that fine Rooseveltian phrase "captains of industry" by amending it so as to read "Captain Kidds of in dustry." The man that did that must be a Kang Hi. He has no re verence for great names. Marion Leader. Between Trains If Judge Jordan can keep going at the rate on which he is started the government may yet want to buy the log cabin in which he was born. When Billy Blodgett of the In dianapolis News comes to Hammond he may have his choice as to which name he prefers "Scaverger Bill' or "Muckraker." This social whirl is getting too strenuous for Hammond. Mrs. isianK ana ner aaugnter Mabie go to Chicago on the S:58 in the morning to buy a shirtwaist and a pair of shoe strings and the local paper kindly says: "Mrs. Blank and her daughter Mabel visited friends in the city today." Now that Turner has an auto he auto be able to auto. They say that Hammond is grow ing in an easterly direction. From a birdseye view it seems to grow in every direction. Atheists, Materialists and nondes sript doubters have for centuries been gradually demolishing through scien tine discoveries: indisputable dis coveries and computations, biblical records or statements and each un- proven proof of immortality or fu turity which have formed the main Btay, the hope, the divine elixir o those who revel in clinging to the fraternity which beleives without seeing! And now comes a wonder ful success to the experiment of re suscitation after death has claimed man as its own! WHAT THEN? Of the twelve men actually quickened from the grave, can any one tell us his experience? Give us the slight est inkling that something superna tural did occur in the interim of de cease and renewal? What becomes ot our catechism questions; our pri mary religious teaching that the instant the soul leaves the body, af ter death, there occurs the "particu lar judgment" where the spirit faces it's Maker and according to the ba lance on the grim ledger of its life, it goes to heaven, hell or an interme diate state? Can any one of the re suscitated dig from the recesses of his aiind even a dim, indefinable memory ot a transference; a heaven, no mind has conceived so glorious; a hell, no imagination has depicted so loath- jp22F HE men of great wealth I speak of course of those whoso "4 fortunes are ACTIVE AND PRODUCTIVE and not f tue idle ric" are agencies for good. They upbuild, j Garment create and develop. They open up new territories, bring new industries into being, build railroads and ships and factories and give EMPLOYMENT AND OPPORTUNITIES to thousands. The proposition to discriminate against them, therefore, is not alto gether in accordance with my view of justice. In one way it would be putting a penalty on initiative large initiative, which only those pos sessed of great wealth can put forth and tend to smother it. Many fortunes which are now active and productive would become STAG NANT. But aside from that I am opposed to direct taxation as a matter of principle and general public policy. Indirect taxation falls upon the whole, while direct taxation falls upon a very small clase, a condition likely to engender a CONFLICT OF CLASS INTERESTS. The small class of direct taxpayers should not be given cause to feel that they are being unduly burdened for the benefit of the over whelming numbers of those who are indirectly taxed. Property is un der great obligations to the state, and the charges which its preserva tion entail bear a larger proportion in the cost of administration than the mere maintenance of civil government. It is right, therefore, that property should make a proportionate contribution for state purposes, but it is not right that in a democratic government such as ourstho many' should to any extent be permitted TO SHIFT THEIR JUST BURDENS on the shoulders of the few. The accumulation of wealth in the hands of a small number might constitute an element of danger to the nation if this favored minority were exclusively composed of reckless and unprincipled men, but for tunately this is not the case. GREAT WEALTH BRINGS GREAT RESPONSIBILITY and far from dulling the moral sense makes new and greater demands upon it. The impoverishing of the national bloodby the admixture of for eign elements of a DISEASED AND VICIOUS character is a much greater peril to the nation. Temperamentally I am an optimist. No man has a greater faith in the future of this country, particularly of the west, than I have. BUT THE CONSTANTLY INCREASING INFLUX OF UNDESIR ABLE CHARACTERS FROM ABROAD, UNLESS IT BE CHECKED FIRMLY AND AT ONCE, CANNOT HELP BUT CAUSE DETERIORA TION OF THE NATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS.

FOR ESCAPING C0UPLE1 Justice Is the Basis of Pure Business Relations ty Axchbiahop CLENNON of St. Louis E have many philosophies today and economies, political and soeial, to settle the labor troubles. But if you have in the heart of the laborer a conscience expressing itself in a just day's work you would have ONE OF THE PHASES of the labor problem solved. And if we could carry this whole tiling back beyond the laborer, into the committee meeting room, whether of the directors or of the employera of the financiers, and lift up there the figure of Justice as the presiding officer of their deliberations you would reach a MORE THOROUGH SOLUTION of all these problems. J ustice is the form of divinity. It is the form of right. It meana that all should be governed by HONEST RELATIONS. It is neces sary for our social organizations. It is the basic virtue upon which you may build others. BUT IF THIS FIGURE OF JUSTICE WERE TO MOVE THROUGH THE WHOLE WORLD IT WOULD FIND MANY WHO HAVE FOR GOTTEN ITS NAME AND ARE DEFICIENT IN ITS PRACTICE. Our Editors in Canada. Toronto, Ont., June 2C.

Matrimony. Matrimony resembles a pair of .ears, so joined that they cannot be separated, often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing any one who comes between them. S. Smith. Mrs. Clay R. Lawrence made a formal demand for her trunks yes terday and was informed by the she riff that she could' have her own be longings but that Chas. F. Wenham's personal effects would be held. Mrs. Lawrence then telephoned to her attorney In Chicago who advised her to give a redelivery bond and take every thing. This she has decided to do and as the papers were made out she was given her trunks. Sheriff Daugherty says he remem bers seeing Mrs. Lawrence and a maj whose description corresponds to Wenham in Crown Point last week and it is beleived now that this town was the point selected by the prin cipals in this affair for a meeting place.

The origin now as at the time of the fire is still a mystery to the owners and to the firemen.

If the president uses that $25,000 a year allowed for traveling ex penses, he will be "going some." Now that congress has passed the denaturalized alcohol bill it would be a good plan for them to denat uarlize Peruna. A south ender tells this yarn about one of the local "washee" says he can vouch for: "The China men (not Pat Reilley) which he man was crossing some of the rail road tracks in the Erie yards and came near being run over by a switch engine. The engine bell did not ring, and the engine crew did not see the Chinaman, but the latter saw the moving engine just in time to escape being hurt. It was a close call and the Celestial was very angry. Shaking his fist at the en gineer, he exclaimed: "What mat ter? No ling bell; stling bloke?" Subscribe for the Lake County Times. "We Want a Navy To Prevent War" By Admiral GEORGE DEWEY. U. S. N. E don't want war. We want a navy TO PREVENT WAR. We need more ships and we need more men. We have the best navy in the world now I believe that And I believe it because our enlisted men are young men, Amer icans, intelligent, brave. Why, they could fight the ship IF EVERY OFFICER ON BOARD WERE KILLED. There was target practice on the Missouri one day. A roimd of shots was fired, and not one missed the target 1,700 yards away. In the turret, firing the guns, were fifteen men, and the average ae of those men was TWENTY-ONE years. The navy is not all for war. It has ita uses in time of peace. We hear that the navy did excellent work at San Francisco. How well they did is not generally known, for as a rule the navy is apt TO HIDE ITS LIGHT under a bushel.
