Oue of the lawyers who is somewhat of a prophet among the free traders, and aims to rival Jeremiah in his book ; of Lamentations, raises his voice to shout about the in quilies of the tariff, and in tearful voice proclaims: ••The poor man is taxed ten per cent ou his axe." And of course lie then goes on >o show wliat an infernal injustice this is, and how it grinds down the poor wood chopjier. Verdy, a little knowledge is a dangerous tiling. Let us take lip the story of an axe, and see if nnv American wood chopper has good cause to curse ttie tariff In 1865 a first quality axo was sold ! ! ' n T °lcdo at ?>16-50 per dozen; to day n bir better axe soils for $7 per dozen. ! ' J l "'" American axe makers were buy ing English steel; to-day they use Amer ican steel. Tho tariff protected the I axo makers in 1865 as it docs to-day, ! bm it created no monopoly; it protoct ! the Toledo axo factory,"with its few j bands, exactly as it protected the great Collins company in Connecticut. All q secured was that the ill paid labor of Enroue should not cut tho throat of W oll paid American labor, j This being secure, capital llocked to ; tho mak ng of a\o, There was a big , factory in Maine, another in Massa L .h„soUs. a larger one in Connecticut, several iu New York, several in Penn s. ivanin. a largo one in Cleveland, ami il!nimcrilW o small ones elsewhere, W ages being about the same, it be I came a quest on of quality and of economy in shop and oflice expenses.

We can soil to En I giaml, and we do sell to Canada. And tho Michigan wood chopper buys a bet ter axe for 75 cents to-day, than bis father paid $1.75 for iu 1865. ; Yet the young man who is teaching us business, grieves in Iiis soul over the poor man who is taxed 10 per cent on his axes! There is a village near Hartford, Coun„ that would interest the men who value so highly "the markets of the world." There they show him a peculiar shaped axe that they make for and sell to Mexican trade; another pat tern for Brazil; another for India; an other for Cape Good Hope; another for Abxesinia. and another for Egypt, They would show him the books 'and prove to him that their goods are bet ter known in these forcigu countries than in Oiiio; that their brand is coun terfeited in England and Germany to make the poor heathen believe that ho is gotting a Collins axe, when he is not, and that the best trade they have is among Englishmen in Australia, yvhb will pay more for the Yankee axe.
