ClilUls. tin; proprietor ofTlit; Public Lerliror. As near as we can rui'iill It. it was as follows : One nuirninir as Mr. Cliilus, v;ts cmiilng down Chestnut street to the Ledger building, a man who we shall rail Smith, rushed out hurriedly, and eeintf Mr. Cliilds, he exclaimed in an cxeited manner: "Mr. Cliilds, 1 have stunned tlio Ledger. I cannot stand that article tin the blank question. am opposed to It, and I have stopped the Ledger." "I am sorry to hear it," said Sir, Chillis, cooly; "but come in and let u see about it." So, leading the way he took him Into tlio count! ny;-rooin where the clerks were all busy along the counter and at their desks, where upon Mr. Cliilds remarked : "All seems to bo right here, but let us examine futher," and he led the way to the composing rooms, where tlio compos. ifors were all busy at their cases set ting type. "All right here," said he again, "and let us go to the press rooms," a-nd without waiting for a re Joinder from the puzzled Mr. Smith, who followed him, he went down to the basement, where the presses were revolving and chattering and dashing off Ledgers by the thousand, when he mildly remarked : "Why. Mr. Smith. I do not see anything wrong about the Ledger ; everything seems to be going on as usual." Iiy this time the aforesaid Mr. Smith began to realize into what a ridiculous predicament lie had brought himself, and hcstaminered out, : "You misunderstood me, Mr. Cliilds ; 1 did nut mean that I -stopped your Ledger, but that I stopped mine," "O, 1 sec now what you meant," replied Mr. Cliilds, with a twinkle in his eye. "You frightened me when you said. vouliad stopped the Ledger. !" Jlefore this all Mr. Smith's indig nation had evaporated, and as he parted from Mr. Chllds he was pro foundly conscious that he had made I fool of himself. Now, there are some huffy people like Mr. Smith, who manifest their petty Intolerance and bad manners in a simular way. If they tlnd views expressed in a paper they take winch they do not like, they become huffy and order it shopped. They appear to have no re gard or tolerence for the opinions of others when they differ from their own. They do not seem to understand that a newspaper, religious or secular, is designed not only for spread of in formation, but also for the presents' lion and discussion of various ques. lions and subjects within its sphere and limits, upon which persons have different views. It Is a kind of open court In which "many men of many minds'' present their opinions. A man who stops his paper because lie sometimes finds views expressed in it with which he does not agree, is as foolish as another man who leaves the bountiful table nf a hotel because there arc some kinds of food upon it which hedoes notlikc, although other guests of the hotel may prefer the very dishes he dislikes. A newspaper, like a hotel table. nrcsents a variety of mental and spiritual food, to suit the different tastes and needs of Its various readers. Some prefer ono kind and somcanoth cr : and It Is the constant aim of con sclentlous editors to publish only such matters as will Interest nnd benefit their readers, and prove "prolltable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and Instruction In rltrhteousncss." and for "all sorts and conditions of men." If huffy people were to consider this, they would not make spectacles of them selves, as they sometimes do. Thus writes nn enterprising Georgia editor: "We will club Farson Jones sermons with the paper. The ser mons arc all red hot, nnd our sub scribers should be glad of this oppor tunlty to get acclimated before they strike the hereafter. ' FllTS liiOlT THE TARIFF BILL. Atlunta Constitution. There is one fac t In regard to the Senate tariff bill that has been some what clouded by the Irritating bold ness of the agents of the sugar ti list namely, that the measure is not only a lit tle bet ter" than the McKlnley iw, but an immense improvement on it. The most untatisfaetory feature of the bill which the House accepted by such a large vote Is to be found in the concessions to the sugar trust. As a mat ter of course, no lenioerat and no man who believes that li.e people have iny rights in this country can endorse the Senate concessions to the rapacity of the sugar trust. Hut the bill has redeeming features. The following table, which lias been carefully pre pared, shows the reductions that have been made in duties in all the differ ent schedules, except the sugar sched ules : DKCKRA8E OK DCT1ES.

Under all the circumstances, we think this is a very wholesome beginning for the Democrats to make In the matter of tariff reform. For a first step It is a very long step. The people are bound to feel the beneficial effects .of u measure which relieves them of tariff taxation to the extent of sixty odd millions of dollars. There is but one blot on the bill, and that is the concession to tho sugar trust in the matter of a different rate on refliicd sugar. Tlio imposition of a dutyion sugar for the purposes of revenue is entirely Democratic and in accord with the platform, for every dollar . thus collected goes Into the people's treasury. The differential rate on refined sugar can be remedied by the people themselves whenever they choose to elect Senators who uinot be bought by the sugar trust. Apart from this, however, the Sen ile bill is one which every Democrat can honestly endorse, lor it reduces taxation to the extent of nearly sixty three millions of dollars, and Is in the direct line of tariff reform. Senator Walsh has had a tabulated statement printed in The Congressional Record bowing that the Senate bill is not only immensely better than the Mc Kiuley law, but far better, as a meas ure of tariff reform, that the Mills bill. Wc think, therefore, that the Dcui- oeiatle party can well afford to con gratulate itself on the fact that it has been able to take sucll a long step for ward in the direction of genuine tariff reform, particularly when, as Senator Vest plainly declares, the Senate is not a Democratic body when the tariff question Is up for consideration. The bill is a measure of relief for the over burdened t axpayer, and, while neit her it nor any other tariff bill will relieve the pressure f hard times that results from the revival of the demonetiza tion act of 1873. yet those who ;ire already suffering from tlio depression will have nearly sixty-three millions of dollars less tax to pay the protected Interests. Didn't Help Urr :ny. Detroit Free Tress. The dainty bit of a summer girl in a bewildering fluff of gown was twit tering sweetly to the rural youth, and he was so tickled he couldn't sit still. She had only been in the country t wo days, and had met him that morning. Is it always so warm as this in the country?" she Inquired. "You don't think this warm do you?" lie responded. 'Indeed I do. I think it is posit Ively licit." "Likely It Is, but it is fine weather for corn," Sho lgokcd at him doubtfully, and blushed. "Hut I have no corns," she said, and he fell off the porch in a paroxysm. Mrs. Jefferson Davis is said to be about to lease her Ileauvoir estate in this State so that, by installing re sponsible tenants there she can pre vent the decay of the old home stead and preserve the contents intact. It is asserted that furniture, books, silver and china known to-liave been the property of the family appear mysteriously and frequently in the curio and pawn shops of New Orleans, nnd a stop would be put to these petty larcenies If thtrliouso was perma nently occupied. The estate Is a very charming one for a winter home. One 1 blue at a Time. Tho following from an exchange' gives some excel lent advice to those who wish to make life a success in a business way : One of the early cattle kings of the. great West became bankrupt w hen all his rivals were nourishing. His only trouble was that he bought new cattle faster than he could brand or take care of them, so most of them strayed or were stolen. A great many smaller operators in other lines of business generally they arc the most wide-awake fellows, too have come to grief hy giving away to the same temptation they have tried to handle too many busi ness interests at a time. "One thing at a time," should be the rule of every one who has nothing to risk and all to gain. If you have a little surplus money- no matter how little you will already have seen several ways of using It, apparently to advantage, and you will be tempted to divide it among t hose various clianc.es, All business seems a mere gambling game, to some people ; if you are one this kind, the more you spiead your money the better, for you are sure to come to grief on some things, and will need the others to help you cmt, perhaps, even to keep yuu out uf the poorhousc. If, however, you realize, as every successful man has been obliged ft do before he succeeded, that success de pends particulerly upon close and intelligent attention to business, you must stick to one thing at a time for some years years at least. I could name some wonderfully smart fellows who were once thought to be at the top of the heap, but who ire now out of sight at the bottom; nearly all of them can trace their trouble to having tried to handle too many things at n time. Some of them have started again on the upward climb, but each lias a single business interest on his mind this time. So you just stick to one tiling at a tune; what has been too. much for abler men will prove too much for you, if you yield to the temptation to vary your interests. A wise Judge once said : "Beware of the manof one book." Ilemoantthat the man who had read one good book, and understood It well, was smarter than the fellow who had crowded hi; mind with a hundred or a lhousand It is t lie same way in business ; the man who knows one business, and gives ins entire thought to It, is the man who finally reaches the top. You, who are supposed to be young, inexperienced and poor, with but lit tle capital but what is in your arms and head, must stick tonne thing at a time if you wish tosucceed. Teople who want to profit by your time and money will tell you differently, but you can't afford to take advice from your enemies. Concentrate your at tention on what you have in hand ; If there conies a time when you think you have time and money to spare, think your affairs over carefully and sec if there isn't something interest ing in them that you haven't yet dis- oveied. There is sure to be; you'll find It if you look closely. Some people are under the impres sion that the new income tax is retro active. This Is a mistake. The in come tax clause of the tariff bill states that from and after January I, 19, until January 1, lwo, there shall be assessed, levied collected and paid iiinually a tax of 2 per cent on the imount of income over $1,(100, and that this tax shall be assessed by the com missioner of internal revenue and paid upon the gains, profits and In come for the year ending December 31st, next preceding the time of levy ing, collecting and paying such tax. The law cannot go into effect until January 1, 18'.l.", and no income tax will be paid until December 31, lS'J.i Tills is the status of the tax and It is in no sense retroactive. People with big incomes will not have to pay the new tax for nearly a year and a half. In that time they will grow accus tomed to the idea, and will recognize the justice and equity of the tax. A Quaker who had a young and pretty daughter was awakened one night by some one singing under his window. A certain young gentleman It appeared had mistaken the fathei' window for the daughter's. Several airs were sung, and finally the serenader struck into "Home, Sweet Home." The old gentleman got out of bed and raised tiie window "Young man," said he, "If thou hast a home, and a sweet home, as thou sayest, why don't thee go home?" 'In heaven people never die, do they?' asked a Harlcn lioy of his father, who Is a prominent physician. 'No, tnv son, death is tuilfiiovvit m heaven,' replied the doctor.

A Danger to Which Workrmn are Exposed While Welding Iron by the Arc Process In the train of modern scientific and industrial achievement has come a number of new physical ailments the price that civilization appears ta be called upon to pay for Its advance-" merit, says the "Western Electrician. Electricity Is credited with two or three of these recenctly diagnosed disorders, and physicians arc now paying more attention than ever be fore to the effect of the electric cur- rent and electric phenomena on the human body. Just now, in France, some of the doctors arc endeavoring to find a remedy for what lias born the clumsy and misleading name of "electric sunstroke." This modern affec tion frequently befalls workmen employed in factories whete metals are fused or welded by the arc process The light produced during the period of connection Is of course intense, and even at a distance of 30 feet the rays produce a painful, hot, pricking sensation, like that of u burn on such uncovered portions of the body as the throat, face and more especially the" forehead. The skin uf the parts a N fected is said to become either copper colored or assumes a bronze hue ; the" eyes, in spite of the use of black glasses are so intensely dazzled as to be useless for some minutes, after which antliopsia or yellow vision sets in, everything appearing saffron-col ored ; the conjunctiva are inflamed and there is a gritty feeling as of sand under the eyelids ; there is frequently considerable pain, also sleeplessness and in some cases fever.

Sur long as the voltaic arc is employed in metal working it is not likely that) any means will be discovered to pre vent occasional temporary injury to the eyes of the workmen. a-gx. One of the most difficult things In the world is to learn to tako a hint easily. When a girl looks fresh. and blooming, and good looking, it itf a sign she is in love. When a man's house burns down, seven people out of ten believe that he set it afire. It is said that stenographers make? good wives: they are so used to being dictated to. As soon as a man makes money, his wife tries every means but work to keep her health from failing. We have heard girls ay of a party that it was real nice, and then, they say afterwards that it was tiresome. Nearly everv far mer who lives close to a town at some time In his life thinks of laying out a burying ground. You wouldn't think it now, would you? But your father used to call your mother a fairy before he married her. There is man in town who thoroughly und.ir- tands the tariff situation, but he doesn't know any thing else. Get any woman in a reminiscent mood, ind she will tell about the lovers sho has hud before she met the man who became her husband. A crowd of people who went into the country for a picnic were disturbed soon after their arrival in the woods by a politi cian, who took off his hat, and began talking In a loud voice about the bul warks of liberty. Atchcnson Globe. I asked John Allen, the funnyman from Mississippi, if the house is going to accept tlio sugar schedule in tho senate bill. "Why of course wo will," he replied. We always give in when we have a row In the senate, we are going to raise !i 1 for awhile and let on as if we never would be enslaved by the trusts and the plutocrats, but when we get out of wind we arc just. going to lie right down and let them step on our necks. That is the way we always do and It is very mortifying for a man of my pride and high moral principles to reali.o that while tho trusts are having to pay a big price for the Senate they are getting the house for nothing. I tell you no ono can imagine how it grinds a man to read all about this bribery and specu lation in the newspapers and the pools the Senators are in and thecolossial fortunes they are making and not have a soul to offer him a dollar."
