Toe United States have risen to the needs of eery emergency to date, and it is not now unreasonable to expect the early advent of a gre'at silver tongued orator who will quell the disturbance on the surface of national linancial affairs ami set the minds of the fearful at rest.

Tiikki: are people in this world who are not stupiel but malicious, who take pleasure in wounding the feelings of others, or in gratifying themselves at the expense of others.

Lati: reports give hope for the inde pendence of Cuba. A president has been elected, Spaniards are deserting the ranks of the Spanish army and the fighters for freedom are winning vie tory after victory.

On: neighbor of the Monticello Democrat, got up a iirst class roast to order, against what he calls "quasi demo cratic papers with poimlistic ideas," telling them it is about time they fell into line. It begins to appear that newspaper men are not sticking close 10 the party text. This is right. A little more airing of the actual neces sities of this country, and less party, is what we need.

Tin: true way to bring prosperity to a:iy part of the country is make a home market, as far as possible for h. -nie p.oducts. Tlie establishment of manu factories in any locality is a sure road to wealth to producers all around. Any thing that tends t do away with the necessity of transporting the grain, the beef, pork and other products of the farm, and still leaves not only other in dustrial pursuits untouched, both aids them by bringing the producer and consumer together, and is equal to en larged facilities and cheaper products to both. Al'l'KNlHcms has got to be so formi dable a disease, and the cause of it so j often attributed to grape seeds or other foreign bodies, that many have feared to eat these wholesome fruits.

WiULi: some of our exchanges are talking about old newspapers and old newspaper men, and the troubles that so thickly bestrew their pathway, before complaining any move they should study up the history of the illustrious Chinamen. The oldest paper in the world is published in that country, be ing in existence over years. One of the pleasant features connecteil with newspaper work in that enlightened country is, that when anything appears in the sheet that s obnoxious to the government, olf etomes the eelitor's head. Up to date nineteen have made then- exits from this world b) this route. If history shall repeat itself ami the present high state of civilization shall suffer a decadence and lapse back to the conditions which characterized the time of the dark ages it will be due to the deadlv microbe. The microbe has intruded his presumptuous self into the most sacred precmcls of private life. He is found in ilesh and fish and he clings to every vegetable that grows. He has checked the time honored and delightful practice of osculation and has given many a set-back to schemes of public beneficence. The latest dis covered abiding place for the microbe is the telephone transmitter where he is said to lurk with a purpose so mal icious and an influence on the public health so potent ani dire that the users of telephones and magnates of tele phone monopolies may well tremble at the prospect. lie who will exterminate the microbe will indeed be a great bene factor to mankind. South Chicago has declared herself in sympathy with the struggling Cub ans who are fighting to throw olf the yoke of Spain. This is in accord with the sentiment of American patriots who stand on the broad platform of in depenilence, assert that all men should be held free and equal before the law and that each man should have the rights of franchise anuavoice by bal lot in the government of his own na tion. Spain has mercilessly taxed her Cuban subjects in order that her own coffers might be filled to meet the lav ish expenditure of Spanish government and has failed to return an equivelent. Like the colonists of America the patriots of Cuba have declared against oppression and for independance. As America fought against England, so Cuba is lighting against pain and the sympathy of every true American should be with the patriots of the Cuban revolution. The latter half of the nineteenth century has been an age of develop ment and evolution, and the last de cade has particularly marked transitory conditions in the sphere of women. A great change is taking place in the feminine world, and civilized nations may as well awake to the fact and ac- knowledge it. Satire and derision, levity and sarcastic humor seem rather to accelerate the changes that are tak ing place than to retard them. Society is confronted with new cognitions and new problems have already presented thenv-eives which will puzzle the most learned of the wise to solve. Women are going to wear a new apparel. Women have already attended theatresin bloom er costume. A great wave of refoim is passing over I ho intelligent and c:i - hghtened women of tins ageand a cata-1 . , cljsin threatens tint will engulf all present conservative ideas ol propriety anil give to posterity modes and cus tohis that have never been il reamed of in the philosophy of our contempor - aries. - - ' IJi si.v is most carefully planning for commercial ami military supremacy m tlie far east and she is forming re-!

It costs you nothing and may aid. the teacher a gret deal in fulfilling his or her duties. if you are not satisfied then fee the superintendent and talk it over with him anel adjust the matter in an amiacable manner.

The persistency in which fictitious news has been made up at this p'.ae-e md sent to the leading journals of the country has finally led to what many pople predicted would be the case, if it wi;e kept up that is, some one of the journals would in time take meas ures to asertain who it was that so long ami so often not only fooled Un published themselves, out very great ly annoyed the citizens of the town in having such preposterous stories go ing about the country, dateel at War saw, every erne of which were false from beginning to end there not even being a scintilla of fact on which lo base the "cock and-bull" stories that have been sent for fully live years past. On Saturday a representative of the Cleveland (0.) Press arrived in the city to investigate the last story of which the paper was the victim-the one in which the particulars were given of the kidnaping of a girl by a young man who owned a line cottage on an island in JCagle lake, at this place, and which on coming to light was about to end in the lynching of the young man, the ground work having thus been laid, it will be observed, for an other dispatch to the Press, giving the par ticulars of the lynching, just as soon as it took place. The publishers of t Iiis paper were asked about the latter in a telegiam, and of course replied that there was nothing of the kind going on here. This led to sending the repre sentative out and he was not long in eliscovering the author of the wholly made-up story. Just what will be i o ie in the matter remains to be seen. In Marshall county over a year ago a sim ilar state of alliairs existed. Fictitious sews was sent to the leading journals of Chicago and elsewhere, and finally the correspondents got the newspaper into difficulty by representing the small pox as prevelent at Plymouth. This uecame serious, and a libel case was foreshadowed at once, and it is said that the authors of the false news was compelled to run away to avoid an in dictment. Sinse that time Plymouth and Uourbon have been comparatively free from "news fakes." We are noj sufficiently informed as to the law, but we presume there is some sort of punish ment for any one who would take money for furnishing news, not a worel of which is true, on the ground that it partakes of swindling, at least. We do not know what course is to be pur sued in this case, and for that reason wo refrain from giving the name of the author of the story eminating from this city, although it is said that the young man confessed that he was the individual who sent it. It Is to be K to discard e are side for the celeorated UHN & SON hoped, however, that the sendin g oi false tlispatehes ami news to the press from Warsaw, will now have an ei.d for it begins to look somewhat danger ous.

A M;m Out Swlmmlnj I Atticked by 9 Milton Shane, of Pablo, was recently swimming arend out-dde tho surf and en oying hims 'If In the water as only .a expert swimmer can, says tho Flor iela Times-I'nion.

Put tho shark was ierr i us, and m often a re, ulsed would rjturn again to tho attack. The youn man, by clear-headedness and bravery, was ab e in some degree to evade the monster'9 cttacks. but not altogether, as at every dart of the fish part of the. unfortunate swimmer's f o-di was torn away. Hut it was a struggle for very life, and finally theycung man reached shallow water, and then the beach, al most exhausted from exertion and loss of blood. It was found that his thigh bore no less than twenty-six separate wounds mado by the shark's teeth, which, ov ing to "their peculiar formation, tore away tho flesh at every incision. A sea captain, who exH.mino 1 Shano.s hurts, paid that judging from tho marks tho fhark could not have been less than t?n leet lonr.
