The discovery of a scheme bv
Matthew S. Quay to colonize the
doubtful Slates of Connecticut, In
diana and West Virginia with color
ed voters from the South is a des
perate game. In seeking to per
pet'iute Republican rule Mr. Quay
»tid his fellow-conspirators seem to
have forgotten that the Republican
workmen ore not idiots and may be
disposed to resent a plan which is
calculated to work great injurj- to
them. The Democrats certainly will
offer no ohstae'e to the colonization
scheme. For every vote the Repub
•inins thus secure the Democrats
will gain two front workingmen who
will leave the monopoly pnrty in
disgust.— Philadelphia Herald, Dem.

Tbe only men of woTth to a town
or community are those who forget
their own selfish ends long enough
and who are liberal enough in their
ideas, to encourage every public and
private enterprise, to push all pro
jects calculated to build up the town
and orhance its importance. The
enterprise and push of a town or
community is tho foundation of its
permanent success. A town may as
well prepare for its funeral as to
become indifferent to tbe enterprise
in its midst. Men who come to a
town to make it their future home,
who cannot look far enough before
them to see that money placed judi
ciously in a public enterprise will
bo hundred fold in tho appreciation
of their property are to be pitied.
They are not the men to put their
shoulder to the wheel and build up

they are not willing to do anything
What attracts a man is one thing,
what will hold him, and command

Edward W, Bokin tbe Ladies Home
A woman’s smile, for example,
attracts u man; but an even temper
retains him.
A pretty gown attracts a man;
the kriowl dge that it was inexpen

A pleasant manner attracts a man,
brightness of brain holds him.
A knowledge of how, when and

a man. an appreciation of the folly
of frivolity wins his respect.
A respect for the religious be
