DANGER THAT THREATENS NATION. Disccnfent and Dishonesty Caused by the feckless Extravagance of the R.ich. Wherever ve ipl low our specta cular rich (the newspapers force us to follow them,) we find them parading like eccentricities, taking off shoes and stockings in Balti more after a fashionable gathering to wade in a public fountain; play ing leap frog in Washington (men and women,) after a smart dance; wandering off for hours in the Bois de Boulogne (in couples with husbands and wives separated,) after a brilliant Paris dinner; watch ing the body to body contortions of a young woman and a boa con strictor (this in New York before a company of men;) applauding unmentionable features of the stupid Seel: revel; gambling, gorging, drinking, gallivanting, m short challenging the devil to offer any fillip for their jaded senses! What wonder if the un sophisticated West is yielding to this contamination, as appears .in a recent Boston paper which speaks editorially of "an entertainment in Minneapolis where three hundred men gathered to enjoy the dancing of a nude artists' model!" ' All of which means, if it means anything, that a powerful element in our. "best," that is our richest society. is setting a profligate example in this country, au ex ample that threatens the sanctity and stability of countless Amer ica!: homes. Pleasure and show and money! Dress for the women! Gems for the women! And a rich husband? There is the poisoned lure that "tempts our maidens! Pleasure and show and money! And of these three but one is essential: money, for money will buy the other two. Does anyone doubt that thousands of our women are practically selling .themselves for money in marriage and then selling themselves ;again for money in divorce?. 'Boesanvone doubbJ that this 'pressure for riches brought upon men by our women (wives, sweethearts and society.,") is a fundamental cause of the .dishonestv that is more and more tainting our business and political .life? Ah, now .we Juave said the vivord, the bitter, wo.undin word, dishonesty! There is the danger that threatens this republic, dis honesty among its citizen. All other evils are less than this, all cures for evils are vain tfntil this evil is cured, for the whole prin ciple of representative government fails abjectly when the people strive only to plunder and betraj the people! If one of our writers twenty years ago or even ten years ago had dared to question the .honesty of the American people, he would have been counted an impudent renegade, a babbler whose stupid insults would have aroused only contemptuous smiles. But to-da- j it is different, our eyes have been opened, and, without surprise though with dismay,, we see able men commissioned Dy our great magazines to go from city to cit3 from state to state, from one business enterprise to another, with the sole purpose of proving the the existence of wholesale corrup tion in public and private affairs- And month after month we read these ghastlr revelations until it seems as it every tmng is rotten, all our cities", all our states, tne whole world of business and finance, even our national govern ment, even our courts. Ana we take it as a matter of course! Cleveland Moffett in Success. TO US! WHEN YOU NEED A PRESCRIPTION FILLED We doubt whether, there is a better equipped pre scription department in the country.

Persons calling for the abovelet ters please say advertised, v J . B . Sharpe , Postmaster. The Junction ' Citizen published rather an unusual notice last week. A herder on Schreiner's ranch in Kerr county advertised that he and his wife could not agree and that they had agreed to separate. He tell, that they had been married ten years, where they married, and other family histon. They have four children. He will take two of them and leave her two. He .owns a small ranch and a bunch of cattle. He owes S50 on it due in June. He thinks is worth $2500 above the debt and he advertises to give the ranch to his wife if she r will give him $1100 for his part, or will take the cattle at so much per head, she to pay him balance if any needed to make up the $1100 for her part. He says if she does not accept one of these propositions the District Court will have to divide the property. He winds up his advertisement by saying that on the first of May he will be in Junction where his wife was then staying," and next day will start back with two of the children, and that after that date she will 4 4 4 4 J)EOX01lAJSTT POWDER.
