Back in the days when Thomas T5.
Heed was spenker of the house a great
furor was created when congress, in two
sessions, appropriated a billion dollars.
Tom Keed remarked at that time that
this was a billion dollar country, but
the explanation did not satisfy the
Democrats, then out of power, who made
the next campaign against the Republi

the appropriations could be kept down
to a billion dollars at the present time
the pledges of economy would be re

The top buggy is a mournful relic of
bygone days which never appears so
mournful as when a glistening touring
car with wire wheels tlits past it at S'J
miles per hour and discharges a cloud
of asphyxiating dust into the faces ot
the occupants. One of the most depress
ing experiences in life is to ride all
day in a lop buggy and never be able
to see twenty feet ahead of the dash
board on account of the dust en
gendered by the speed-craz.ed tourist.
There was a time in the history of
our country when the man who owned
a high top buggy that hail to be
climbed into from a scoring .-tart was
looked upon as one of the predatory
rich. Most people rode in the resilient
lumber wagon or the loose-jointed
buckboard, and when an allluent neigh
bor invested the price of a wagonload
of fall pigs in a top buggy or a two-
seated surrev everybody said he was
making ntonev too fast, and the diref
tors of the bank held a meeting for
the purpose of going over his paper.
Many a man has had to take up a
promissory note with a heavy .heart,
simply because his wife objected to
having her spine crystallized by contact
with the unyiel.li ig seat of a still
legged lumber wagon.
.Nowadays, however, it is getting
harder to sell a top buggy than it is to
peddle gents' furnishings in South

There are times, nevertheless, when
the top buggy is a household necessity.
It must be confessed that it has its
good points. For instance, the top bug
gy does not have to have new tires
every thirty days, nor does it run out
of fuel late at night, making it neces
sary to amuse some morose farmer
from sleep and rob his gasoline stove
of its contents. The top buggy does
not bury itself up to the chin in a
mudliole, either, and have to be vanked
to its feet by a rapacious yokel at $1
per yank. O le can always start from
home in 'a top buggy and be sure of
getting back before the week is out.

the top buggy, but it is too slow for

In advertising sent from this office, which ap

being, "Senator Page Makes a Speech," the fol
