SMITH PERT PARAGRAPHS. THE GADFLY ON BOOKS ?f you have a passion for novel ized American History, you will find Coniston, Mr." Winston Church Ill's latest work, much to your taste. Richard Carvel and "The Crisis" were exponents of the revolutionary fever. While they exhaled a fair amount of skill, they can best be described as "good reading;" there has never been a display of high art. but his climaxes are so excellently fiery and his tricks of speech and action so catchy, that his novels are the well beloved of romantic actors and his themes have been worked to death. As a tired creature standing close to me remarked when shown "Conis ton:" "I don't want any more of his stories; too much war for hot weather." While Mr. Churchill's ac tions are all closely related, we do become tired of his aptitude at rush ing us into a legion of strenuous events, whenever ha becomes tired of expatiating upon his characters for all the world like a talkative showman. However, "Coniston" promises con siderable interest along other lines, and may secure for the author a new clientele among those men absorb ingly interested in all which pertains to politics or finance. The story deals pri-rily with the arrival, methods, and evil of the boss in .uuerian politics. Mr. Churchill dis claims any intention of making his hero the counterpart of any one poli- tician of local fame. Naturally, each one will be busy fitting prominent .politicians into this new niche, but the strain and methods character ize them all with the exception of some trifling difference of breeding or education. It is common talk that this leading character is a pen picture of the present head of Tam many hall. "The Queen's Tragedy" by Father tension treats of that ever interest ing period of English history which comprises the life and death, pro jects, acts and intentions of Mary T ?i n i x luuor ana uuzaoem. nave we a -v. - -. - - we so constantly delve into the lives of these unfortunate rulers? To reach the lighter vein requir ing mental exertion these languid days, we must travel back through publications of the past twelve months. Nothing better can be found than 'The Conquest of Ca naan by Booth Tarkington, or "The Dawn of Tomorrow" by Frances "The Sun&et Trail" by Alfred Henry Lewis and "Twelve Stories and a Dream" by 11. G. Weils. THE GADFLY Pay day looks a long way off when . you are out of a job.

It isn't better to have played and : lost than never to Lave played at all.- Many a man has won a reputation for wisdom by being a good guesser. The man who has but one idea in his head never has to search for it A Doubter. I wondor (said the pessimist), Not meaning to offend, If there are men who like to fish Or if they just pretend. It may be sport to work all day To land one ehiny fin. But toll me, you who play the gam, Just where the fun comes in. Th fisherman with ancient clothea And tackle bright and new Starts out before tho break of day And walks an hour or two; Then he must stand and let the sun Beat down upon his back, And in the evening with three fish Or four he travels back. Perhaps he rents a heavy boat And for a weary day Pulls several times around the lake Ana calls the labor play, ; And when for all his work and pain He doesn"t get a bite lie must Invent a batch of lies To tell the boys at night. I can (he grumbles) understand. If there is on tho side An Ice cold Jus that to the face Is frequently applied. But just In fishing by itself.

We can deeply sympathize. with the , Vienna man who was challenged to i fight 151 duels. A man would have -to take more than a passicg interest in any cause tj be anxious to die for it 151 times in one day, but as only his honor was involved he didn't feel like standing up to be shot at that many times. It may be great, for the honor, but It Is mighty poor for the digestion to have a man trying to give a good imi tation of a sieve and partially succeed ing. But as we understand the Euro pean duel there was not much danger of that. In fact, if all accounts are true ha would have been safer on the field of honor than at home, for at the latter place he might catch the measles or the whooping cough. On the whole It looks to us as though the gentleman in declining has over looked a bet. Think what a figure with the ladies the hero of 151 duels would have cut. . 'IIILE with us the church and state are separate and should so continue, the Christian church is nevertheless a powerful agency in the support of a free state, it presided at the birth of the republic and has been 'ts - faithful guardian angel from that hour until now. It inculcates among the great body of the people that wholesome respect for the rights of men, THAT REGARD FOR LAW AND OR DER, without which the state cannot long survive. "The UuUed States," said De Tocqueville, "must be religious to be free. Further more," said he, "DESPOTIS1I may govern without religiom faith, but LIBERTY cannot." The socialistic tendency in certain quarters has not escaped tlio at tention of the most casual observer of current events. Its growth can not be viewed except with concern, for it bodes no good to our country. The church may well concern itself with all those things which uflYet the temporal welfare of this great people. It may well concern itself with those things which menace tho state, which tend to JEOPARD IZE THE INSTITUTIONS which came to us from the hands of our fathers. The movement i3 yet in its incipient stages, and it is well that its pernicious influence should be understood. Socialism i3 at war with our most cherished traditions. It is hostile to the enlightened principles of our growth as a great people. It is a peril to our social and industrial development. IT WOULD PARA LYZE INDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE, which has been the most potent factor in our upbuilding. Here, amid the unsurpassed advan tages which a kind Providence has placed at our hands, the individual counts for more than anywhere else beneath the sun. Here, no matter how humble his station, he is able to devote his genius for accomplish ing things, for subduing the wilderness, for building great cities, for spanning the continent with the evidence of his power, for improving his environment ahd making better the home and stronger the state. But . this were endowment enough. It has been the touchstone of OUR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. It has given us countless communities, happy, self reliant, prosperous, brave and patriotic. So cialism seeks to level down and NOT TO LEVEL UP. It is alike at war with the best interests of both capital and labor. It seeks to re strict each in the exemise of its natural functions. It puts limitations upon each which are contrary to American genius and spirit. In the United States the laborer of today becomes the capitalist of tomorrow. Such has been our experience from the beginning until now, and it will be history of tomorrow. v Neither constitutions nor statutes, though they were framed by men with the wisdom of Solomon, can establish and maintain EQUAL ITY AND ABSOLUTE JUSTICE among men. We must look to the persuasive power and influence of the Christian church to bring them to a complete realization of their true relationship to each other ; to their primary duty to deal fairly with one another, to carry into the various relations of life the principles of that brief and splendid code, the Golden Rule. No political law can maintain ENDURING relations of amity "between capital and labor. No HUMAN law can bring them into such harmony as , perpetually to avoid friction and collision. The Christian church can do more than all the measures framed bv the hand of man to maintain industrial peace, for it teaches the BROTH ERHOOD OF MAN and inspires men with a sense of justice and fair play which is the ultimate foundation of good relations. IF MEN DO NOT HAVE WITHIN THEM THE SPIRIT OF LOVE AND JUSTICE, IF THEY DO NOT HAVE IN THEIR BREASTS THE SPIRIT OF DIVINE LAW, THERE IS LITTLE HOPE OF ENDURING CONCORD. Philanthropy and Business By Dr. FREDERICK A. CLEVELAND of New York HILANTHROPY and accountancy have a direct relation in fact, one which requires CO-OPERATION. In a society like our own philanthropy must deal through institutions and organically take on corporate forms. It has estates to be administered and corporate functions to be exercised and controlled. ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROL is tho professional field of ac-l countancv. If Now, a philanthropic institution differs from a commercial or joint stock company chiefly in this, that the element of PROPRIETARY ! CONTROL is lacking. In such a society there are no stockholders j and therefore no proprietors to whom the trustees are bound to report ; ! 'k tnere is no one by whom tne act3 ot tne trustees are to be reviewed. The beneficiaries have no claims which may be enforced; neither ! have donors any guarantee that the terms of their gif te or bequests ' will be complied with except such guarantees as aro found in the in- 5 tegrity AND ACCOUNTABILITY of the trustees. In the past corporate trusteeship has been too lightly regarded. It It has been customary for religious and philanthropic enthusiasts, as well ff as designing promoters, to seek out men of reputation as stool pigeon? to sit on corporate boards.

In tnwir etate platform a declaration for a tariff for revenue only. Commenting on this, Congress man James K. Watson says: "If they had declared for tariff re vision and stopped there they would have been in a much better position to wage a campaign. By declaring for a tariff for revenue only they put themselves on record as indorsing the issue upon which Grover Cleveland was elected president. When Cleve land was a candidate Indiana resound ed with the cry of a tariff for revenue only, and after Cleveland was elected Boup-houses were opened in all of the leading cities of the state. "It will be an easy matter for Re publican orators in Indiana this year to point out the intimate connection between tariff for revenue only and soup-houses. The Democratic leaders In congress are wiser than the Demo cratic leaders in Indiana. No one has heard John Sharp Williams declare for tariff for revenue only. His cry is for tariff revision. F. L.

"What did he stumble over?" Hammond is used to about any thing in the way of an automobile, but the machine that stopped in front of Summers Pharmacy last night was certainly a freak. It was made by the Holsman people, and was being delivered by one of their represent atives to Dr. Shafer of LaPorte. About a hundred bystanders, in cluding Dr. Sharrer, who is an auto enthusiast, gathered to see the fine points of the wagon. It was a small runabout entirely without gears the shaft from the motor being connect ed with the large narrow wheels by a heavy wire rope that gave the machine its odd appearance. There were no foot levers and the speed was controlled by a small lever attached to the tiller. The entire mechanism of the machine was throughout very simple, yet at the same time it was built for speed, judging from the way the "chuffer"' hit the pike for the south.
