Some two thousand dollars had been saved and were now lying in bank, annually drawing interest, lint of I h a K:chard Rosenberg knew nothing. lie only knew that his wife was in easy circumstances when he married her. The next allernoon, having a half hour of unusual leisure, he would ju-t run up lo Tom Gar reti'rf olliee lor a lew moments. Tom was silting with a ponder ous book of I he law open before him, and in which he was trying to get interested. He pushed HSide the volume, however, when his friend entered. "How are you, Dick?" lie said, rising, placed a chair for his vis itor. Thisis an exceptional hour." Torn carefully inserted a mark be tween l he leaves of his law book, replaced it on the shelf, then set I led himself lor a cozy chat. They had not cone far in their talk when the denr opened and in walked Mrs. Garrett. After pree! in g both gentlemen, rite camo up to the desk, and in a gentle, diniiied manner announc ed: "I shall need another five dol lars, Tom, if you can spare it.

Amy P "No, indeed," she laughed. "But I would like lo show you some thing if you are not loo busy." Mr. Rosenberg.sittingaparl from Ihe window, to which Ihe two had withdrawn, could see that the "somelhii's" proved to be hand some samples of passementries. "I want one of Ihese for my new satin." he heard Mrs. Garrett say. "Which shall it be, Tom P Toin cavo his undivided atten tim to Ihe trimming, and, posses sing good deal ol taste, was able to help his wife out ot her dilem ma.

"My word for il. Dick, vou will haye more money at I lie en I of the year if Mrs. .Rosenberg buys her own things." That evening there wpre no call ers, and Mr. and Mrs. Rosenberg stationed themselves in thelibray with books and work. The lady of Ihe house worked fitfully, watched Ihe (lames in the glowing lire, hes itated, opened her mouth lo speak once or twice, at last gained cour- :e and gave utterance: "Mrs. Franklin came in this al lernoon to ask me to go shopping Willi her lo-morrow morning. the has seen some goods she would like to consult me about, and as 1 said I needed a dress, sho suggest ed I hat I get it at the same lime. I didn't know whether it would be convenient for me to have any money now or not. Il it is not, perhaps I can have enough for car lures, and then I can help her with things." Belle trembled as her husband began. First he laid down his pa per and pushed it aside. "The very idea ol your having to come to me for car fares ! No, I don't mean that it isn't right," as he saw Ihe nmuiure gather in Mrs. Rosenberg1!? eyes. "I have been meaning (he did not say for how long) to have a little talk with you upon the money question. Belle, I always thought il was the man' place to manage all the money. 1 will tell you how K was in my home. Sly father was a poor boy. He was sent out at 10 years of age lo shift for himself, lie did all kinds of hard, cold wgr and received hard, cold treatment He tried several trades, and at last decided to go into a factory, learn all there was about Ihe busi ness, and get up by degrees into a good business. He did so. "In my early years lie had a good salary several thousand dol lars a year. But there was one thing I always observed, and thai was that though he gave liberally and spent lavishly upon himself, be never trusted my mother with of this twelve dollar kir.U." I d.o ... ..!!., I ......... it u h money. He trusted her, but I hoe were not days when women were expected to'control things. They tdways a-ked t heir husbands whal to do and what lo buy. Any way, it was so in my father's fami ly, and in his brothers' families, and other families I knew about. 'Why my mother had no pock ellxioKol her own. .She always went to my father for every cent. "Wheu I married, I supposed mat 1 ouglil to keep mv monev in in my own hands, but I have made up my mind thai I have been all wrong. Tomorrow is your birth day. I'm going lo celebrate by beginning to live as 1 mean lo go on." To Mrs. Rosenberg's surprise he was bidding out to her new pock et book of i lie most approved style. Mrs. Rosenberg look it, and 'the fainl ci.lor in her cheeks deepem d us on exaninnig it she discovered a fifty dollar bill neatly folded and lying within.

But in a lew davs Mrs. Franklin observed to her husband, "Whal a long biithilav present Belle Kos- enbcrghnd! She seems lo have plenty of money in these days for all thai she needs." AsforMr. Rosenberg, he never regretted that he decided In make his wiie partner in home affairs. He no longer had occasion to be ashamed of her appearance in public, nor needed he lo lament any undue extravagance in her. 'Dick, you are not robbing your self, or the interest of your house, or anything, lire you V she vehtur- ed one day. "I wit h every wife could have her allowance." And Air. Rosenberg smilingly growled, "I believe every sensi ble man sees to it that his wife lias one. How a Bkaitifll Hv.m.v Was Written. One day Mr. Wesley was sitting by uo open window, lo king over Ihe bright and beau tiful fields. Presently a lit lie bird, (littering about in ihe sunshine, at tracted his attention. Just then a hawk came sweeping down toward the little bird. Tlje poor thing, very much (lightened, was darling here and there, trying to find some place of refuge, in tho bright sun ny air, in the 1-iafy trees, or the green fields, there was no hiding place from the fierce grasp of the hawk. But seeing an open win dow, and a man sitting by it, the bird Hew, in its extremity, towards it, ami, with a beating heart and quivering wing, found refuge in Mr. Wesi ley's bosom. He shelter ed it Irom the threatening danger, and 8.i ved il from a cruel death. Mr. Wesley was al the tim suf fering from severe trials and was feeling the need of reluge it his own time ol trouble, as much as did Ihe trembling little bird that nestled so safely in his bosom, So he look up his pen and wrote that beauiiful livmn : "Ji'diw, lover of my soul, Let me to tli. T bosom fly, While the wave of trouble roll, While the tempest still is high." That prayer crew into one of the most beautiful hymns in our lan gauge, and multitudes of people, when in sorrow and danger, have lound comfort while they have said or sung the last lines of that hvmn. The gentlemen who take Damr n and Pythias as their patron saint will appreciate a story set afloat by Ihe Waterloo (Ind.) IYm in effect that a young lady ol that city disguised herself in male clot h ing and clerked for several months in a si ore, during which lime she applied for admission as a Pythian and was introduced into the order. All went merrily until I lie third degree was reached, and then rame exposure. 'It seems" says Ihe Vrw, "In Ihe third they have an India rubber rat and cellaloid snake run by clock wrrk inside, which are very natural indeed. The idea is to run at the candidate to see if they will flinch. When Ihe snake ran al ihe girl she kept her nerve all right, but when Ihe rat tried to jump up her trousers she grabbed her imaginary skirts and jumped on a refrigerator which was (landing near, which is the work of ihe fourth degree, and screamed murder. The girl is a member of the order, however, and there is no help for it.' rLiTFOR.1I 1B0PTE0 AT THE DEMO CRATIC STATE fOWEHTIOl. 1. We are Democrats, and as such, without equivocation, eva sion, or mental reservation, we proclaim our steadfast devotion to the principles of the Democratic party, and pledge ourselves to la bor in 8ea-on and oul of season lo secure our supremacy. 2. We believe that no perma nent prosperity can bo pssttred to Ihe American parly until this gov ernment is administered in accor dance with the doctrines of this great party, w hich demands equal rights lor all and denounces all class legislation its hurtful ard wicked 3. We b:-lieve that the depres sion now bearing so cruelly upon the agricultural interests of this count ry, is largely caused by un just discrimination against them in behalf of favored industries, whereby the few have been en riched al Ihe expense of the many; monopolies have been crea'ed,!ind robbery made lawful ; and we Le lieve thai ihis depression will con tinue until all class legislation has been repeated and all taxation has been equally and fairly laid and with no other purpose than to raise the revenue needed to defray the expenses of Ihe government, economically and honesily admin istered. We believe that individual pros perity can only come from indi vidual industry, intelligence and frugality, and that all rchemes for th enrichment of ihe people by legislation, are chiinmeiical, and utterly incapable of realization. The policy of the United States government for the last thirty years has been, and is now. espe cially destructive to Iho agricul tural interests of the country. The larmers have been unduly taxed, they have been made the bearers of Hie burdens imposed lor Ihe ben efit of ihe manufacturers, while Ihe prices of their chief products are lixed by the prices in Europe; the protective system has been bo arranged as to reslrict the markets and thus reduce the prices nf such products, and at the same lime en hance Ihe prices of what Ihe farm er has to buy. We declare it to be the highest duty of the govern ment lo render due justice to the agricultural and laboring classes the real producers of weal 1 1:. To (his end we favor a repeal of the heavy tariff taxation on the neces saries of life, and (he extension ol our foreign commerce. In (his connection, it mtift not be forgotten, that (hough Ihe Dem ocratic party has not for thirty years had entire control of (lie government and, therefore, has not been nble lo give relief to ihe peo ple by repealing class legislation and enacting just and honest laws, yet it has ever manifested its pur pose to give this relief when it shall have the power to do so, and it is the part of wisdom lo hold up its hands and not condemn it until it has had opportunity and failed to take'advantage ol il. 4. We believe that gold and silver should be coined upon the same terms and. conditions, and that when the government shall cease lo discriminate between Ihem they w ill freely circulate side by side, and be equally uselul and acceptable lo the people. We also believe that (here should be an additional issue of treasury notes, interchangeable with coin, sufficient lo transact Ihe business of ihe country, and to re lieve the present financial depres sion. 5. We believe that every legiti mate power ol the government should be exerted to provide Ihe people with cheaper facilities lor transportation, inasmuch aa large portion of their earning is now taken from them to pay the cost of marketing their products; we, therefore, demand liberal appro priations by Congress for the im provement of our rivers and har bors, regarding their improvements as an absolutey essential step to wards the accomplishment of the desired end. 6. We denounce as unconstitu tional, revolutionary and infamous Ihe force bill attempted to be pass ed by Ihe Republicans of the fitly first Congress, w hereby they would have taken I mm the States Ihe right to hold Iheir own Congres sional elections through the agen cy ol iheir own officers, as ihey have done since the beginning of the govern me ii I and by subjecting the white people ot the Southern States to the domination of igno rant negro hordes would have per petuated their party in power. Believing as we do, that ihe Democratic parly alone can secure us against such disaster we beseech all Democrats lo stand by its colors and to avoid all issues which might creato distention, nd r dis rupting that party, place the South at the mercy of its enemies. 7. We extend our thanks and congratulations lo ihe Demoorifc Senators, led by I hat able au J pa triotic Statesman.Senafor Gorman, ami Ihe Republican Senators who assisted them, for the defeat of the infamous, secinmaf and partisan iorce bill, and we lake special pride in Ihe conspicuous part played in thai splendid fight by our own able and honored Sena tors George ami Walthall, and we endorse their course as 6ur Sena f(fr.V We lake pride iii' the lact thai; Ihe Democratic parly has always been the opponent of class legis lation, the greatest evif of the limes in which we 1 i ye, and ol alt Ihe paternal and centralizing ten dencies ol the Republican party. We are opposed to what is kno'wtr as the Sub-treasury scheme, as vi olative of Ihe time-honored princi ples ol the Democratic party and a violation of the Democratic idea) of Ihe proper construction of the Constitution, and we regret that tho discussion of the same has been1 ihrusl into the politics ol our State. We regard it as being not only un democratic, but impractible ami not calculated I o furnish ihe relief claimed for it. GET rOSSESMOS BEFORE INrSTI.IC Natchez Democrat. Mr. llenrv Waltersnn, who in now lecturing in Texas, in a recent interview is reported to haye said, among other things: "For God's sake, let us let it alone, and try and elect our ticket in 1892, If we do not carry the country then, you may look for tho Force Bill and everything else that bodes evil. Elect a Demo cratic President and Congress, and sectionalism is dead forever in Ihis country, and that is what,we want, to kill out sectionalism. Once,' in Lossessinn of this Government and we will deal wilh silver and all other questions so honestly, so broadly, so patriotically, that we shall challenge the judgment of the masses, and in Ihe providence of God, we shall rule this couulry wisely and well." There is a profound wisdom in Ihe above utterance that should commend itfoll to every Democrat in the land, and a warning that cannot, be safely neglected, 6no' that should alarm the wanderers into Ihe delusory pat!?s of the' Sub-treasury in Mississippi ; an appeal w hich should arouse the old Democratic spirit in every quarter n promise of success nnd a poinf iug tn Ihe way for success which' should bo encouraging.
