People have no idea how
crude and cruel soap can be.
It takes off dirt. So far,
so good ; but what else does
it do?
It cuts the skin and frets
the under-skin ; makes red
ness and roughness and
leads to worse. Not soap
but the alkali in it
Pears' Soap has no free,
alkali in it. It neither red
dens nor roughens the skin.
It responds to water in
stantly ; washes and rinses
off in a twinkling ; is as
gentle as strong , and the
after-effect is every way
All sorts of stores sell it,
especially druggists, all softs
of people use it

Sinoo the publioation of tho Reagan-Gerald
oorrespondenoe considera
ble intorost has been manifested here
as to what effect it might bavo upon the
shattered norves of that member of
Chairman Heagun's official family
upon whoso vitals tho Fantods ar
knawing. Tho following dispatch was
reooived by a gentleman this morning
in answer to an inquiry in that diroo
lion :
"Austin, Tex., Feb. 10, 1892.
"Thanking you for kindly interest
in my unfortunate brother Uriah Suf
ferings, can say that while there is no
itopo of ultimate recovery from tho
dread diseaso, ho is though 'unable,'
still ablo to draw his salary with that
patriotic devotion to the public ser
vieo that has over characterised his
official career.

The following from tho Now York
Sun makos us laugh beg pardon, it
makes us smile I ! :
"Both tho llav. Josoph Cook and
the Hon. Roger Quarles Mills wcro
in town last night. It is soldom that
so much missionary zeal is found even
in this town, to which all the talents
are drawn. Tremont Tcmplo is, of
course, a very dlfferont plaoe from tho
houBo of rcprosontatives, but tho Bos
ton Monday Locturor and tho Corsi
oana Cobden both oarry on an educa
tional campaign. Both are poaitiye
and doginatio, paesionato and vehe
ment, burning and boiling. If Mr
Cook has tho more learning, Mr.
Mills has tho hoavior repartee If
Mr. Mills is the handsomor, Mr. Cook
can be hoard further. The maiu dif
ference among many minor differences
betweon tho two is that tho Bostonian
is a goneral roformer who wants to
smash things in general, whilo tho
Corsicanan concentrates his destruc
tivoness upon the Tariff.
"A phrenologist who examinod Mr.
Cook's head whon that head was worn
on youthful shoulders, gavo this chart:
'Is fond of applause; has much vor
bosocess and faculty of speeoh; is
given to repetitious, is confident and
loud. I adviso that he follow the
calling of aa auctioneer.'
"An inferior strolling phrenologist
who examined Mr. Mill's bumps early
in 188S wrote enthusiastically: 'You
have the biggcBt head I havo ever
seen. Your oombativoncss, well-do-velopcd
self-esteem, and tonaoity indi
cate that you would have BUcooeded
as a policeman in a wostcrn town if
you had not taken up another field of
public life'
"Yet neither combativeness nor
self esteem is moro developed in Mr.
Mill's than in Mr. Cook. So much
for phrenology."
Oh, what a fortunate thing that the
same phrenologist did not oxamino
the head of the Now York Sunl Tho
oxposure would havo been humiliating
to the people whom tho Sun supports.
The local newspaper has so many
missions to perform that it is often
tho caso that said local paper will
single-foot out on one, two or three of
tho said missions to the neglect of all
tho rest. For instanco, one paper
may claim to givo all the local news,
state nows, and tho political "ins-and-outs."
Another paper will mako other
claims, porhaps, as broad as these, but
oovering entirely different ground or
performing other missions. In tho
main, newspapers arc sound docu
ments. Thoy aro necessarily sound,
as they form a web ovor tho country,
ono is a oheokmate and oirtio of the
other, and whon'ono paper'gets "out of
lino" all tho balanoo fool tho effects of
tho said paper being "oul-a-lyin." So
tho erring brother is called back and
tought to know the meaning of
"straight up." The papers are great
agents for good or evil, and as tho
brethren know this they feel a com
uion interost in the oonimon prees, and
a general desiro that all papers
should be "straight up," and that jus
tico and truth should prevail in news
papor oirolos throughout the country.
Most editors aro as scrupulous as most
of tho clergy. They havo not forgot
ten tho precept of tho father of their
oountry. Georgo W. was always "in
line" and not always "out-a-lyin," and
in this the editors of today aro simply
imitators. They very much revere
their illustrious father and some of his
Tho nowspaper that furnishes daily

Tho nowspaper is tho balancing
weight of tho world. Today with
oliuroh, tomorrow with state whero
truth and juBliae aro, there the news
papst will be found. Its shafts of
criticism aro sent fast and doep into
tho vitala of wrong, uud sooner or
later it triumphs, and juBtice is vindi
cated. The Evening News is endeavoring
to covor all these points, and whilo it
is enabled to walk boldly between
justico and meroy borrowing of
neither but disseminating both yet it
is always gratifying to us to b ena
bled to dieeern in tho mists that arise
daily from the battlcGclds of life that
light, that beacon light of approval
and public upprcoiation whioh lures
one on to moro victories and greater
achievements, and which nerves one
to the full disohargo of duty.
