Their evidence was all important, as it
clinched beyond all questions of doubt
the guilt of two or three of the prison

this evidence was secured there had been
some little doubt in the mind of the
prosecution as to whether they were di
rectly implicated in the murder, hut all
doubt was dispelled to-day. These men

I am not able to speak from experi
ence, but I am told that in a load of
apples, under the jolting of tho wagon,
the little apples all get to the top and
hide tho big ones, and lienee I suppose
that the size of the apples on top indi
cate the jolting of the wagon. If this
be true, both of our wagons, civic and
ecclesiastic, have been jolting pretty hard
in these latter years, for a fine lot of lit
tle apples have come up on top.
Look where we may in public life we
see the men of strongest brain and best
moral life are not on top in the places
of public officialism, but are at the bot
tom, as a rule. While the shining little
political apples of small size are on top.
Briefless young lawyers are in the legis
ture, while many third-rate men go up
to Washington to draw $7,500 annually
of the people's money and send out gar
den seed, and from the number of little
apples on top the old national wagon
must be bumping over a very rough,
While I am not inclined to be too crit
ical or harsh in judgment, yet we seem
to live in an ago of small men in public
life, while our men of brain and charac
ter are left at home. Think of the days
of Clay, Calhoun, Webster and Hayne,
and then think of these days of the rise
and rule of the mere intellectual pig
mies ijKhe United States Senate, and
no one V?Ji for a moment doubt that
the Senatorial wagon is doing some aw
ful jolting, for the top apples are decid
edly small, and hardly a western or
southern big apple shows up, while the
northern apples are no longer like Sum
ner, Blaine and Conklin. If the peo
ple love little apples it is all right, but
it would at least look better to go down
to the bottom and dig up a few big ones
iyst for looks, if nothing else. Shades
