All the world will Join In applauding the reaolutlon of Italy to disinter what treuKiires may yet remain under the debris of the age-long forgotten cities of Oatla and Paestum. Ilnth cities were unkindly dealt with by Provi dence. The glory of Oatla, chief port of ancient Home, receiving the corn and oil of Sicily, Sardinia and Africa, wns slowly but surely betrayed by Father Tiber and flung contemptuous ly out of reach of the shallowcnt ships. Time, curiously enough, has, however, failed to rob her of her industry which first made her famous, and suit Is still produced In smull quantities from the little village of one hundred Inhab itants that has stolen the old city's name and puys the ruins Immune from the modest distance of two miles. Paestum Is more (Ireek than Roman, and one niuv anticipate that If an other temple of Neptune or temple of Ceres lies beneath the heaped-up dust of the centuries It will be Athens and not Rome that will be raised from the dead. Puestum's fulu is sudder than that of Ostin. for the Oreek col ony on Unman soil was eurly smitten by maiarln and an evil reputation caused her to be burled In a deeper oblivion than the wave washed col umns of Oatla. TROUSERS UNDER THE DAN. Less Than a Century Ago They Were Considered Irreligious. It will assuredly Bcem more than strange that within the past hundred years the wearing of trousers has been regarded lis Irrellgloiu. The fart thnt In October. 1812. an order was made by St. John's and Trinity col leges that every young man who ap peared ill hail or chapel in p.uilal. oils cr trousers should be considered as absent Is startling enough; but It would appear tbut eight years later the founders of a llethel chapel at Sheffield Inserted a clause In the trust deed ordaining that "under no circumstances whatever shall any preacher be allowed to occupy the pulpit who wears trousers." 'Mils is striking, but It Is even more Impres sive to find that Rev. Hugh Ilourna, one of the two founders of the Primi tive Methodist Connexion, Bald of his confounder, "That trousers wearing, beer drinking Clowes will never get to heaven." And It would need a stu dent of "the Mreeches Bible" to say precisely when this assumed cuu nec.tlon between theology and tronsms began and where the departure fruiu It will end. Notes and Queries. Rights of Employes Laid Down. 'Trainers of the earliest laws wills have come down to us guvu purllciilar nttentlon to the question of the rlgbui of employes," writes an observw. "Those wonderful statutes which the great Iluli) Ionian king, lluuiiuuinlil. codified over 40 centurlVs ago have law upon law devoted to the rights of servants. If the aervunts were free born then their rate of payment was fixed for them, their scalo of Co iu pen Ration established In tho event of their suffering loss or Injury. For the most part, of course, tho servants of that ago were nluves. For these, too, provision was made. If a doctor In jured a servant In a surgical operation he had to pay half the price which that slave cost; if death resulted tho master received slave for slave. If tha patient were cured, then his master had to pay the doctor'! tee two shekels of silver." Restricted Conversation. "I said to myself," Bald the careful man, "that never again In New York would I ask a man how his wife was, he Is so likely to have been divorced and got him another wife between the times I have seen him. No. Not un less his wife Is standing right In front jf me will I ask him that, and then It Is not necessary. But the other day, mind you, I met a child I knew, and aid to her, "Maud, dear, how are your mother and father?' and sbo straightway answered, 'Why, didn't you know that mamma aud papa had aoparnted?' So how, you see, I can't ask after anybody. I must restrict my conversation entirely t the weather." Paint Your House Right , this time by i;::isiing upon having v MASURY'S HOUSE PAINTS which are the paints that LIVE THE LONGEST - They have greater preserva tive qualities and will maintain their original appearance years after inferior substitutes have vanished.

Iosai. taw I E. M. LA'AKriAN Farmington, Mo. INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM Extract From Speech of Mr. Bryan, Delivered at a Banquet at Newark, N. J., May I. One of the New York newn liiipers, dii-nissiinr the initiative and ifferemliini, said that they have only used t lie initiative t) ltd referendum in Switzerland u few t imeH iu I wciit.v-live yetus. Weil, that is an argument iu favor of it, not utruiust it, for one of the advantages is that even after you cet lliese things you do not have to use them; but if you do not have I hem you frequently need to use tliem. Why don't you need to use tlieniT Hccimse, if the peo ple liuve the initiative, they have a system whereby they can compel the Hiilitiiisriion of niiythiiii; they want to vote ou and when diso bedience is useless the representa tive is more sure to obey. And if the people have the refer endum, which if a process by which they sit ill j'"'u'iteut on what their representatives do, then the repre sentatives know that the people can vi t ) their nets, mnl (ln.t if they do ptisH laws that I lie people do not wnut the people will veto them. ', The beiiiily ol this system is that 1 it gives you power, and yet yon do not always have to use the power; i the possession uf it is iu iisclt a ! (jn at protect ion. And why shouldn't the people have what they want; why sliould- I n't the neonle linve the veto imucr' Uoes not your governor veto the nets of your leL'islaluiv? And if nut man ean veto nil not of the legislature, why shouldn't the peo ple, who elect the governor anil the legislature, have the right to veto if they do not want a par ticular lnwf . I read the other day in I lie New York Tribune an editorial on the Oklulioina constitution, and the greiit objection to it, according to that editor, was that it was written by cornfield lawyers now get that right I was Hbout to say cornfed lawyers the other day, but that is nut it I mean cornlicld lawvers i I lint's what it said. Now 1 read Hint Oklahoma constitution, aud I any to xou that it is the lust con ktittitinu iu the I'nited Slates to day. I was interested to find how can-fully those cornlicld lawvtrs hud puttied up the holes that the liust-fe.l lawyers had been making l hi oilier constitutions. It was I really interesting to see how care fully these cornfield lawyers, look ing at the question from the stand point of the common people, had corrected the things that had been found weak in the constitutions of other States, aud the best thing iu that constitution is the provision for the initiative and referendum. Now no mutter what mistukes you make iu your constitution, if you give tlie neopln power to cor rect the mistakes they will correct them. No matter how bad your laws may be, if the people have the power to make them good they will make them good, and the most im portant provision that you ean have in a constitution is a provis ion that places iu the bunds of the people power to correct the consti tution and make it keep pace with progress an Intelligence, und the initiative und referendum are the best things that we have found so far to bring the government nT-ar to the people and make it their government. Hut you say tho people make mistakes. Of course they miike mistakes. Hut I think the peotilel have the right to make their own mistukes. Others have made mis takes for them, and the people have been denied the privilege ol correcting those mistakes. You cuunot expect to liuve a govern ment that is fiee from mistakes, because we are governed by human beings and they nre not perfect. But there is this difference between mistakes that are made by the ma jority ami mistakes that are made by the minority. The majority never makes a mis take intentionally, for it uever pays the majority to make a mistake. Whenever the majority finds out that it has made a mistake it cor rects it, but if you have the min ority ruling it in sometimes so profitable for the minority to make mistakes that they never want to correct them, and nearly every revolution in society has been an effort of the people to correct the mistakes of the minority. When yon give the people the power to correct 'mistakes, you will find abuses corrected very quickly. Now I do not want to appeal to the rndTcal, but to the conservative for if the conservative people of thiscountry took nn intelligent view of their own affairs it would not be necessary to. make any other argu ment in favor of these reforms. It ihese conservative people were fore sighted and took an enlarged view ot their own interests, they would see the necessity of reform in our methods of government. Take the steam ns an illustration; if the cur rent is uot obstructed there is no danger iu it; you can stand and lis ten to the singing of the water:'. Hut if you attempt to put u dam across the stream the water rises and presses against the dam; if you raise the iliim higher the water rises higher yet, and after awhile there will be a force in thnt pent-up water that no dam made by human hands can long slay; and then the people who live in the valley below nre ill danger. Ami so, my friends, if you let the people have their way there is no danger in any country, but if you dare to obstruct the will of the people there is r.lwavs pressure be hind the darn, aud the more you raise the dam the greater is the pres sure; if there is any dauger now it is because predatory wealth lias ob structed the v ill of the people for years. The more freely you allow the people to rule, the more quickly will every abuse be remedied. If you scratch your finger and blond poisining sets iu your doctor tells you to cut the finger off and thu save the hand; if you wait he tells you to cut off the hand and save the arm, aud if you still wait he tells you to cut off your arm iu order that you may stive your body. And so it is iu the body politic; if you will give the people a govern ment that they can control, if you let the people have their way they will reform every abuse as soon as they liinl it nut . Hut if you dare ohftruet the will of the people you simply invite more radical reform. Ten years ago, when I was a can iilale, ll'never mentioned govern ment ownership of railroads, and six years ago 1 was so conservative that I never mentioned, either in writing or speech, the possibility of government owueiship of rail roads, and yet so rapidly has pub lic sentiment grown and so arro gantly huvp the great railroad cor porations obstructed the will of the people that a republican president has, in two messages threatened government ownership if the rail roads did not get out of politics and allow the people to attend to I heir own business. Is not that evidence of the truth of what 1 have said, that if you re fuse mild remedies you must he prepared sooner or Inter to ineel harsher remedies? Now I licliev'i in the inilativc and referendum, and I have believ ed in them for yetirsjand I have be lieved iu them because I believe that tljey make it possible for the people to correct abuses whenever they want to corivct them. This is the only way!to save society from great convulsions for great remed ies must be applied to great evils. I know of nothing thnt is milder as a reform than the initntive and referendum, and I want to encour age you iu fighting for it, be you rcpublicons or democrats. He Was a Hero. Red Hud has a hero, no the rumor goes. The modesty of the retiring gentleman forbids us men tioning his name, but his courage iu n case of emergency is none the less sincere. The recent heavy raius have caused considerable damage to the railroad roadbed. A few days ago our hero found a piece of truck washed out. Just about that time he heard the pas senger train whistle and he knew theie would be a wreck and many lives lost if he didn't do something quickly. Kuuuiug into a farmer's ynrd near by, he gathered up a doz en clothes pins from u line and strewed them over tho weak planes in the track. The train appronch ed with thunderous speed. When the engineer looked out of the cab mid saw the dollies pins he knew there was a wash out on the I inl and "topped the Iihiii in time to save Ji:i lives. l'ilgrim.
