To all voting men who cotitem- plate a journey to Waslung'on for the ptn pse of securing employ menl the h"8t advice according to Harper's Weekly, is don'l. The humblest situation in a mTcantile house where the peeuni iry reward is small, where ihe hours are long fund where Ihe labor is "hard, is better in the end 'ban a govern ment clerkship. One way lie op pottunitie8 for advancement, for the utilization and final reward ol every lalenl and all the energy thai ihe young man possesses. The other way lie hopelessness, drudg ery, stagnation. Many a poor young man seeks a government clerkship in order that he may earn hissiipporl while he issmdv- log his prolessiou. He is playing with fire. He is taking up aS a stall' that which in likely in become ii( Ce8savy to'him as a ciuteh. He is in danger ot di-covtnng, wl en his uroles-ion is learned, lhat he has not the moral courage to drop his government stipend. It would have been infinitely belter it mijhl have been his making il he had loiled lor scantier dollars in a manlier way. Ihe government clerk drags out a tnonoiynous ex islence, dreary unpromising ol ad vancement, and ll he is not lumen out in his old age, to linger on through his few renniningyears in poverty, he is one ol the most for iudric'oI his kind. There is no service lhat so destroys i he latent energies and kills Ihe hope ss lhat of a government clerk. Young men wholhink they have the ele ments of success in them shou d avoid it as they would the plague. Statistics or Wont.

In Ihe days of our great grand f illets when a goodly stock of li quors of all soi tj, Irom home brew ed ale to sparkling eider to "old cognac'' or costly madeira, was a necessity in every "house of ure- tension," I here was a homely old proverb in constant,, use about the lollv of ''saving al the-apigot while Ihe wine wjs running at Ihe bung." lo those who remember that Hie spigot was the Imle peg inserted to strip die small hie lhat had been bored in i he end of the cask to let out the liquor when wanted, ami lhat ihe bung was the peg used to close the large opening through w hich the liquor had been Hist pouren into the tipper side of tho cask, the old proverb lias lost none ol its sarcastic aignilleance. There are, and always will be, countless ways of spigot-raving; and bnng-wn-ting. To make personal charities small and infrequent in order to buy the more tickets for boxes at charity ci'iiceris and balls; lo giveoii" family insufficient and unsavory (nod in order lo have money for large and cost ley eniettainments ; in economize nn warm undercloth ing tor Ihe sake of buying more showy outer garments ; to go on foot or in the horse-cars when health and the weather require the use ol a carriage, nudJhen pay lor several vi-its from a physician nl for the attendant drugstore bill ; to expend twenty-live hun dred dollars a'yenr Tor' Ihe rent of a narrow '-house with hard-weal fiiti-hings" in a fi.sliionalde neigh borhood, and one hundred dollars annually for enough coal to barely keep iis inmates from freezing, while twelve tn fifteen hundred dollars rent and two hundred for fuel would keep the household warm and . comfortable in an old fashioned house in a respectable vicinity these are but a fewol the countless ways by which small savings may accompany great wasnncs. , But the worst of all ways is lhat of toiling and moiling by parents in order te lay up money for their children, while Ihe latter ar al lowed to grow up without regard to tiny higher object ihin tneir own personal pleasure of the mo meat. ' Ol what value u it that our "gilded youths" have larger for tunes and consequently wider opportunities lor social anil intel lectual enjoyment and advantage if they have not the culture of mind and heart which enables l hern to profit by their fortunes! of what use has been Ihe toiling and moiling, Ihe striving and delving lo amass riches for those who have not refinement of nature, good manners, good morals! What happiness can ii bring to the parents who in the evening of iheirdays, are compelled to sea that while i hey have been paying clo-e heed to I heir financial nff tirs, the boos ami daughters for whose sakes thev have slimed their own pleasures and slun'od their own finesl feelings have developed only iittn Selfish, ii. d. dent, careless ani mals, to whom the possession of money means nothing belter than big dinners and ba!R magnificent dressing and lavish display ! Shall not such parents remem ber, when it is too late, that our largest interests are thoe nf heart, mi ml and iii"iMl-,Uiat our smallest are those of maierial possessions! PRESIBEITIAt tOCBTESIEI. Chicago Herald. It is quite possible that Mr. Clveland will permit a few ol Pres ident Harrison s favorites to re main in olliee. This favor is near ly always extended by a new ex ecutive to his predecc8or as a sort of ' presidential cuuttesy." When Mr. Cleveland went oiit of office lour years ago it is understood he made a request for l fie retention of iwo or three Democratic office holders, among them being "Cous in Ben'' Folsom. United Stales consul nt Sheffield, England. This request, made iu response to Mr. Harrison's expressed willingness to extend any lavor of this sort, whs readily granted, and Mr. Cleveland's relative has not been d'B.urhed in spile ol the fact that tlie pressure of Republican office holders for this profitable post has been very creal. Il is quite likely now that Mr. Cleveland is coming hack, lhat 'Cotisin Ben", will con tinue to exercise Ihe dtilies of a consul lor four more years and that in exchange for the courtesy granted in his relative by a Repub lican administration. Mr. Cleve land will see thai a few of Mr. Hsrtison's personal friends are not disturbed. Thus, partisanship ' v is sometimes disregarded in spile of the politician'.
