TUE Kepublican papers of Phila
delpliia have a habit of making fre
quent allusions to Tammany's alleged
misrule of New York, but they haven't
bqen saying much for a month or so
past. They are so astounded at the
gigantic combination of corruption
and fraud in their own town that they
tind it good policy not to throw stones
for awhile. The set of jobbers that
cousti ute the Philadelphia Building
Commission could give eveu Tweed
lessons in wholesale robbery of the
people Philadelphia may be slow in
some respects, but it must be ac
knowledged that the old Quaker town
is no novice in raising crops of mil
lion-dollar boodlers.
NEW JERSEY officials do not take
much stock in what McLeod or even
what the Jersey Central mangers say
The report that the latter company
had withdrawn from the combine, af
ter being ordered to do so by the
court, was welcome news, but it was
soon offset by McLeod's swaggering
remarks about "fixing things all the
same." When the Central and Read
ing people got together and made
another "arrangement" concerning
prices and production the Jerseymen
were again after them with their
stick, and for violating the court's
order a receiver will be appointed for
the Central, so that the state will be
positive that its instructions are being
carried out. A little more Jersey
blood in Penu ylvania officials would
make known the fact to McLeod &
Co. thai there is also a constitution
and laws here.
IT is a well known fact that Cleve
land is a warm friend and a sincere
advocate of civil service reform, as
was shown by his axtension of the
service to the postoffice department
daring his term. Harrrison was
scarcely inaugurated when he revoked
this order, and for nearly four years
he and his subordinates have been
filling the postal service, including
mail agents, letter carriers, etc., with
men of his own party. Now when
his administration is drawing to a
close, he has the audacity to reissue
the Cleveland order and place several
thousand Republicans under the civil
service law. Harrison was responsi
ble for enough without adding this
act of partisan bigotry to bis record,
and Cleveland would be doiug noth
ing more than justice, and at the
same time would administer a needed
rebuke to his narrow-minded prede
cessor, if he will revoke this ordei
after his inauguration.
DURING last week Washington was
overrun with church people from
every part of the couutry. They
were there to protest agaiust the
proposition to change the law regard
ing the Sunday closing of the World's
fair, and if talk will have any effect
upon congressmen it is very proba
ble that the exhibition will be closed.
The arguments brought forth by
some of the opponents of Sunday
opening was that the fair would draw
the crowd away from the Chicago
churhes. This does not speak very
well for the churches, to say the least.
If religious sentiment is so dead
that all places must be closed in order
to get people to church, then it is
time to pass a law compelling people
to go. It is but one step farther
than the Sundayites have already
gone, and not nearly as far as some
would like to go. A curious class
these must be who would compel the
hundreds of thousands that will be
in Chicago every Sunday to pass their
leisure time in the concert halls,
theatres and saloons rather than let
them view a silent exhibition. Some
of the kinds of religion that is preva
lent in the nineteenth century needs
reforming very much.

Stump Speaking in the West.
It is a report highly creditable to the
good sense and intelligence of the rural
American voter —the paper in The North
American Review, in which Mr William
Dudley Foulke records his experience as
a political campaigner in the west He
says what is certainly true —that it is
easy to make the unlettered understand
any question of politics if the speaker
has the gift of putting it in plaiu. simple
language. That is the orator's highest
gift. The colloquial style is the best.
Mr. Foulke tells us; but rant, noise, de
clamation and stale jokes are of the past
It is things to think about that the peo
ple want now—not stories to tickle their
humorous sense.
Once Mr. Foulke was at a political
meeting at which Senator Sherman
spoke. He made no attempt at orator
ical display What he said was clear,
quiet and simple. The audience listened
to him with attention, but applauded i
him very little. He was followed by an
orator who told a great number of com
monplace stories and was uproariously
applauded. But Sherman was the man
who gained the votes.
Strangely enough, Mr. Foulke, who has
spent half his life east and the other half
west, believes that the western man—
'the plain looking farmer and mechanic"
—understands the economic questions of
politics better than the eastern man
The eastern man will detect an error in
grammar sooner, but the western man a
flaw in argument first. He commends
especially the farmers and mechanics of
Indiana for their intelligence. But these
intelligent people ought to have the
grammar too Open air meetings make
the greatest show, but indoor meetings
are the ones that convince the voter
Especially encouraging are the following
evidences of the uew departure in polit
ical methods
The professional story teller Is at a discount.
An apt Illustration Is always In place, and it
to be, but a speaker who goes through
the country today tolling of the Republican
pup which has Its eyes open and the Demo
cratic pup which has its eyes closed will not
win votes, even If he gets the whoops and
plaudits of the boys and torch bearers in Ills j
audience. Most disastrous of all In the abusive I
speaker, the man who Insists that all Repub- |
licann are boodlers or that all Democrats are ;
imps of helL Personalities, unless they be the
mere recital of clearly proved facta In the po- j
iitical records of the men assailed, are most I
unfortunate. Vituperative epithets are worHe I
than useless. The facts must speak for them
There lias been a great deal of satire wrltton 1
and believed regarding the absurd arguments
which have sometimes succeeded in influenc
ing the verdict of a Jury in a trial at law or In
influencing the Judgment of the multitude In ,
the trial of political issues. Undoubtedly per- J
sonal. local and political prejudices cannot bo
ignored, but with the spread of general intelli
gence these factors become constantly of less
account. Political speakers often think that
they have to descend to the comprehension of
their hearers, when, in point of fact, the good
sense of the men who listen is quite as great as
that of the man who addresses them.
A Beautiful Old Ago.
A little time ago there died at Putnam,
j Conn., Mrs. Diana Douty, aged almost
I 103. Other people have flved nearly or
quite to her age in these closing years of
the Nineteenth century often enough to
indicate that the average of human life
is lengtheningas mankind grow cleanlier
and kindlior
But the one fact that is remarkable in
connection with this venerable woman
is that she kept all her faculties unim
paired up to the time of her death. It
was not then disease that took her off.
She seemed simply to go when her time
came "as quietly and serenely as a
flower closes its petals at the close of
day." So every human life should close,
painlessly and without the decay of any
of the mental powers. So it will close 1
when mankind are fully civilized.
Mrs. Douty had remarkable physical I
health to begin. She had never been 111
until a year ago, when she had the grip, j
This physical constitution might have
given her the great longevity But there
was another cause which kept her young
as the years went by She was a woman
of bright, cheerful disposition. Her tem
per was very gentle and calm. An at
mosphere of content and good will ema
nated from her and drew toward her the
kindly feeling of everybody who knew
her. She wus helpful to all and be
loved by all. The pain, the insane pas
sion, the shriveling anxiety that burn
away the nerve forces and age men and
women seem to have had no hold upon
Diana Douty.
The state that will hold the balance
of power in 1993 is most likely Texas.
This state has in her own borders every
climate, shading off from north temper
ate to tropical. Ttie agricultural prod
ucts of every other state can be grown
in Texas, from wheat to bananas. Toxas
has fifty-seven counties that are each
larger than Rhode Island. Her area is
as great as that of all New England,
with New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl
vania. Indiana and Ohio added. She
has besides a long sweep of seaboard
with cities and harbors. In a hundred
years all this vast region will bo fully
settled. Think of the congressmen that
Texas will furnish then!
Let us think of our mobs, riots and
lynchings and hang our heads. There is
one tiling the people of localities where
such crimes against law and order are
committed should fully understand. A
region whore mob instead of law reigns
cannot become prosperous. The decent
people who build railroads, churches and
school houses and by their industry add
to the prosperity of a community will
shun the mob Infested regions as they
would a cholera hospital as a place of
residence. Electric lights, waterworks,
colleges and throngs of well to do, intel
ligent people will never be found in the
same atmosphere with lynch law and
moonshine whisky.

The turkey. What is the American na- i

emblem of our greatest agricultural
product is as graceful and picturesque
an object as art can lay hold of for dec

such at the World's fair, carved in wood
and stone and painted in wavy, shining
luxuriance upon doors, frescoes and
The Congregational churches of Eng
land and America celebrate this year a
tragic and striking tricentenary. Their
church, built upon the principle that
each congregation shall be independent
and manage and control absolutely its
own affairs, selecting always its own
pastors, was really founded in 1506. A
number of persous were confined in
Bridewell prison, London, for heresy.
In their prison they organized the first
Congregational church. In 1592 another
congregation was established in London.
Several of these heretics and comeouters
paid for their temerity with their lives.
Early in 1593 the pastor of the church
and three or four of its members were
hanged for saying there was another way
to heaven than through the Church of
England. But the blood of the martyrs
is the seed of the church, and it proved
to be so of the Congregational church.
While the Congregationalists of 1893
solemnly commemorate the 300 th anni
versary of martyrdom, they will find in
the present and the future reason only
for rejoicing and hope.
How to Get Good Iloads.
It cannot be done unless the state gov
ernments co-operate in away to insure
uniform effort and expenditure. Per
haps the best way would be to utilize
the national government to the extent
of attaching a professor of road engineer
ing to the agricultural experiment sta
tions in each state. Bulletins on the
best way to make a smooth, hard road
would be as profitable as those about the
locust borer or the chinchbug. At any
rate, it does not matter how the informa
tion is circulated, just so the farmer
gets it percolated through his brain that
he loses in actual cash hundreds of dol
lars a year because of that horror—the
mud road.
it has been suggested that the state
agricultural colleges should take the
matter up and add to their courses of
study a department in which roadmak
| ing is thoroughly and scientifically
| taught. The young farmers who took
j the roadbuilding course along with
I their scientific agriculture could then
' go out and become road supervisors to
some purpose. There is so much inter
est in this vital subject that one may
hope Americans are actually awakening
from their Rip Van Winkle sleep by the
roadside. Mr Isaac B. Potter's maga
zine. Good Roads, is gaining a fair cir- I
dilation. In Michigan a reduction of
naif their road tax is given to teamsters
who use broad tires.
St. Jackson's Day.
Nothing could possibly exceed the sat
isfaction with which Democrats in gen
eral celebrated the seventy-eighth anni
versary of the battle at Now Orleans,
Jan. 8,1815, in which the British General
Pakenham was killed and the British
were finally beaten and driven off by the
indomitable Andrew Jackson.
The main reason for celebrating Gen
eral Jackson each year may be his great
victory over the British, or it may be
his equally great historic saying, "To
j the victors belong the spoils." However
5 that may be, the Btb of January is in
teresting alike to the Democratic politi
cian and to the student of history. It
really was a great victory, that which
Jackson won at New Orleans. To at
least 12.000 of the best soldiers in the
British army Jackson could only oppose
perhaps 6,000 militia from Kentucky
Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana
To these states belong the glory of Jack
son's victory. Their regiments of hunt
ers were excellent marksmen. It is par
ticularly Interesting to note, too, that
among these valiant fighting men there
was a battalion of negro soldiera The
colored people, therefore, have a right to
join in celebrating Jackson's Day. Their
race helped to win the victory
Then after the battle was all over and
hundreds of brave British soldiers lay
dead upon the field, among them half
the men of the splendid Ninety-third
Highland regiment, Jackson gave orders
for the burial of those who had fallen.
The British were peniiifted to bury all
4helr own men who lay beyond a certain
distance from Jackson's intronchments.
Those within that distance were buried
by the American soldiers themselves.
After all was over an incident oc
curred which shows that brave men are
always generous. The British command
er was surprised at receiving from Gen
eral Jackson, under flag of truce, a pack
age containing the watches, swords and
epaulets of those of his officers who had
been buried by the Americans. A cour
teous note from General Jackson re
quested that the articles bo handed over
j to the families of the inon who had fallen,
j In this case, at least, the victor did not
| keep the Rpoils nor allow his followers to
to keep them. For this all of us—Demo
crats, Republicans, Populists and Pro
hibitionists—join in honoring the mem
ory of Old Hickory.
Not Superstitious.
Uncle Job Mcintosh, an elderly negro 1
who lived not many years ago 011 one of
the Georgia sea islands with his wife
Hannah, used frequently to rebuke his
wife for her "slooperstiahin." "Yo's a
heap too slooperstisliis, Harnah," ho
would say. "Why am' you done obsarve
me, ole 'oinau? Yo' am' nebbor seen me
min 110 slooperstishin. Dcy ain' no dog
howlin wot kin skeer me; dey ain' no
black cat wot kin make me beleobo dat
I'ze g'an fer to die!"
Aunt Hannah paid no attention. She |
was accustomed to let Job assert his su- 1
porior virtues without contradiction, be
ing quite aware that he was no better
nor wiser than his fellows.
The very night after this positive as
sertion on Job's part of his independence
of superstitions Aunt Hannah was sud- 1
denly taken very ill with cholera mor
bus. Job, after satisfying himself that
her case was really alarming, set out ;
just at Bunrise to fetch the doctor.
He was just making his way in a de
pressed frame of mind through the path
overgrown with wild orange and jas- j
mine that leads from his cabin to the
boat landing. His eyes were upon the |
ground. Suddenly he became aware that
some object was confronting him on the
path and he looked up with a start.
There standing facing him was a big
black cat, its glossy back arched, its tail
erect and swollen to what seemed an ex
traordinary size, and its golden eyes
glittering in the light of the rising sun.
It was merely some wandering tabby of
largo size returning from a night's foray
and startled by Job's quick approach in
to making a bold show of resistance, but '
to the negro's dazed eyes it was an aston- 1
ishing and terrible object.
Job threw up both hands and screamed:
" 'Tain't me. Marse Satan! 'Taiu't me
dat's sick, 1 tells yo. It's my ole 'oman
Harnah dat yo come fer 'Tain't me.
Marse Satan!"
Jack Tolliner. on his way to the rice
plantation, came up just at this moment
and took in the whole situation, and
while the cat turned and ran off through
the jungle. Jack laughed long and loud
at Job's fright.—Youth's Companion.
What*# In a Name?
He was a small boy traveling with hie
father and mother on a train, and the
way in which he war whooped up and
down the car aisle made him a terror to
the other passengers.
"Sit Btill," said his father in a foghorn
voice; "how can I hear myself think
when you're making such a racket?"
"There, there, Johnny, dear, you dis
turb pa," said his fond mother.
But the infant terror kicked and cried
and refused to keep one position a sec- (
ond at a time.
"I'd like to have the raisin of that j
boy—l just would," said a sharp fea- 1
tured woman who had her knittiug j
"I wouldn't mind having a hand in it |
myself," said a man who was regarding
the youngster with murder in his eye.
"Sit still, Johnnie, dear," said his moth
er placidly for the 900 th time.
"Why don't you call him John? He
might pay more attention to you then."
said liis father crossly.
"What's in a name?" asked the mother.
' "By any other muno he would be our
Johnny still."
"Then for heaven's sake give him an
other name," retorted his pa. "for he '
hasn't been still a moment with the one |
he has."
Then he plugged his ears with cotton 1
while the other passengers encored liis
last remark.—Detroit Free Press.
Astronomy and Thotoip-apliy.
Modern astronomy is more deeply in
debted to the science of photography
than the average reader may imagine.
Without the aid of the camera and the !
perfect viewH it has given us of the '
bodies "far out in space" our knowledge
of celestial geography in the latter part
of this the grandest of all the centuries,
would be meager indeed. When, where '
or by whom the camera was first point- ;
ed skyward with the intention of photo- j
graphing a planet, or even a whole sec- ;
tion of the star spangled canopy which
envelops our little world, I will not
attempt to say, but the grandest of
all such undertakings is that which ;
has been inaugurated and partially ;
carried out by the astronomers and
scientific photographers of the world j
during the past two years. Some mas
ter mind conceived the idea of mapping
the entire sky—of making a bypath
chart of the heavens, as it were. This
idea when fully matured was commu
nicated to others interested in that par
ticular branch of science, and tho result
was an agreement that a celestial atlas
should be made.—St. Louis Republic.
Animals In the Rain.
Horses and cattle never look so miser- !
able as when standing exposed to cold I
and driving rain. Every field in which
cattle are turned loose should have some
looso shelter provided, however rough
and hardy the stock. If left to them
selves in a state of nature they would
travel railes to some well known bank
or thicket, which would at least give
cover against the wind. Shut up be
tween four hedges, they are denied aliko
the aid of human forethought and of
their own instinct.
Bewick's vignettes of old horses or un
happy donkeys, huddled together in
driving showers on some bleak common,
express a vast amount of animal misery
in an inch of woodcut.—London Spec

All from Reading a Novel.
There are two men in this city who
are thoroughly convinced that much
good may come out of the perusal of
flashy novels. They have been sojourn
| ing in state prison for the last five years
I —one in Sing Sing and the other in Au
burn. A day or two before Thanksgiv
ing they returned to their respective
homes free men. The governor had be
| come satisfied that they were innocent
, men, wrongfully convicted, and had
pardoned them.
The reading of a flashy novel by one I
j of the convicts while lounging in the
corridors of the prison led to an investi-
I gation which convinced a great many
influential persons in this city that two
men had been railroaded to prison—one
j for fifteen years and the other for eight- j
een years—simply because of lack of
proper legal defense. The reader of the
I novel was so impressed by the exu- '
I berant sentiment that trickled through
the narrative that he made up his mind ;
that the authoress, for it was a woman's
j story, must be very soft hearted.
I He therefore lost ao time in sending
I her a written statement of his case, with !
I an appeal to aid him in securing his lib
erty. The story touched the heart of !
the novel writer, and she supplied the
necessary money to have a complete in
vestigation of the case made by an em
inent New York lawyer. The active in
terest of a New York newspaper man
was also enlisted, and a good deal of
hard work was done within a few
months. The producer of lurid novels
j forgot her calling in her enthusiastic
! light for justice, and it is safe to say
that the two liberated men will never
, be found in the ranks of those who tr at
her stories with contumely.—New York
For the Greater l ulled States.
At a mteting of the South Norfolk
Liberal association 011 Saturday there !
was an almost unanimous expression of
opinion in favor of the political union of
Canada with the United States. Fol
lowing upon the resolution passed by
the Liberals of the town of Simcoe on
the previous day this event indicates a
drift of public sentiment which it would
be useless to ignore or belittle. Poli
ticians of the small sort may try to make
capital out of the fact that these declara
tions were made by Liberal conventions.
It would be easy to point out, on the
other hand, that two of the leaders in
the annexationist movement, Mr. Solo
mon White, M. P. P., and Mr. T. M.
White, secretary of the Political Union
association, are Conservatives, and that
a majority of tho signers of an annexa
tionist document published in this city
I are of the same political faith. —Toronto

Kulloro* Trousers In Science.
A sailor's trousers are tlie foundation
on which the learned Professor Heilprin,
of the Philadelphia Academy of Sciences,
rests liis theory that the north pole can
lie discovered, and that within a few
years. This garment was the property !
; of a seaman whose ship entered the
! arctic regions by Beliring sea. Some
how the apparel got into the ocean enr
j rent, was swept away up toward the
pole and finally came down along the
I shore of Greenland, where it was dis- !
covered. A ship, argues Professor Heil
prin, can go where these trousers have
been. And it is a fact that an expedition
is going to start from Norway in the
j spring of 1593 to try it.—Boston Journal.

Two I,leas of Happiness.
An old farmhouse, with meadows wide
And sweet with clover on each side;
A bright eyed hoy. who looks front out
The door witli woodbine wreathed about,
And wishes his one thought all day:
"till, if I could but fly uway
Front this dull spot, tho world to see,
I /How happy, happy, happy,
llow happy I should bel"
Amid the city's constant din,
A man who round the world has been.
Who, mid the tumult and the throng.
Is thinking, thinking, all day long:
"Oh. could I tread once more
Tho field path to tho farmhouse door.
The old, green meadow could 1 see,
How happy, happy, happy,
How happy I should bel"
