The Value of Good Manners. A great deal has been said about the best equipment for success In life, but i one part—the thing which possibly mat / ters most —the manner and bearing of the person is often overlooked, but without which all other equipment is jeopardized. 1 ' A ready smile, a modest assurance, a I * patient and deferential power of atten [ tion, have often carried a man higher L than his talents or brain power, and a pleasing address, if not the best letter of ' recommendation, is certainly the best assistant to a good one. Politeness is k •* the current coin which purchases the most for the least outlay. It comes to but few to save a life, die for others, or add fame to the family name, but to conscientiously and sweetly give oneself to practicing the small courtesies is to do unmeasured good in the world, for life is a “great bundle of email things. “Politeness is not mere mannerism; it must flow out of right feeling and right thinking. Here, then, is the keynote to good % manners—a generous home life, a con stant regard for the feelings of others, liberal reading, habitual self denial and 1a never-failing simplicity of act and ex pression. There should be outward i . gentleness and inward reserve. / Politeness does not harbor a desire to | shine, to rule, or to lead; it is content . with perfect harmony and gentleness, ft , . There can be no politeness without ft taking others into consideration. Many ft young people are distressed lest they should be misunderstood or put down lower than they belong, hence they make an effort to convince others of their consequence, but fail of the pur pose, and only give the effect they have been trying to prevent. It means taking a good deal of trouble , •—it means sustained effort, and will de pend more upon the small things we do than the great ones. “One great deed is ’ easier than a thousand small ones.” One Day of Housework. Count Leo Tolstoi tells a story from | liussian peasant life which will especi f ally appeal to housewives. A man and his wife had discussed earnestly which had the more and harder work to do, and finally, as neither was convinced, they agreed to try the experiment of changing tasks for a day, the woman going to the field to plow, the man stay ing at home to do the housework. What happened is quoted as follows: “Now mind,” said the wife, as she I started out, “turn the cows and the - . sheep out to pasture at just the right time, and feed the little chickens, ani look out that they don’t wander, and have the dinner ready w-hen I come back; mix up some pancakes and fry them, and don’t forget to churn the but ter. But above all, don’t forget to beat the millet.” The peasant had so much trouble In getting the cattle and sheep out that It was late when he thought of the chickens; and in order that the little * chicks might not wander, he tied them all together by the legs with a string, and then fastened the string to the old hen’s leg. He had noticed that, while his wife was heating the millet, she often knead ed her pastry at the same time. So he went to work to do these things to gether; and as he had to shake himself a great deal to do it, he saw an excel lent change to get the butter churned at the same time by tying the cream jar to his belt. "By the time the millet is pounded,” he said, “the butter will have come.” He had hardly begun this triple task b When he heard the old hen squaking i and the chickens peeping. He started on a run to see what was the matter, but tripped on the edge of a flagstone, fell, and broke the cream jar to pieces. In the yard he found that a prodigious hawk had siezed one of the chickens and was flying off with it; and as the chickens and their mother were all tied on one string, they hung together and the hawk flew away with them all. In his confusion the peasant left the yard gate open and the pig came in, tipping over the bread tray, and spilled the batter, which the animal then im mediately began to devour. While the peasant was looking on in astonishment .. another pig came in and began rooting amongst the millet. Then, while the peasant was clearing things up as well as he could, the fire Went out. He had not succeeded in re kindling it when his wife entered the yard with the horse. “Why,” she said, “where are the chickens—and the hen?” "A hawk carried them off. I had tied them together so they would not :L ... . V wander, and the hawk carried off the whole lot*’ “WeU, Is dinner rpady?” “Dinner? How could I get dinner when there isn’t any lire?" “Did you churn the butter?” “No; I was churning it, but I fell and dropped the jar and broke it, and the dog ate up the cream.” “But what is all this batter that I see on the floor?” . “Those miserable pigs did that.” “Well, you have had a hard time,” said his wife, “as for me, I’ve got the field all plowed and I’m back home early.” “Oh, yes;” exclaimed the husband, bit terly, “you’ve had only one thing to do, while as for me. I’ve had everything to do all at the same time —get this thing ready, take care of that, and think of everything. How in the world was I to do it?” “Well,” she said. “That’s what I do every day. Now I guess you’ll admit that a woman has something to do." Baby’s Medicine. “Baby was taken very bad while you were out, mum,” said the new servant girl, who is the subject of the following story from Tid Bits. “Oh, dear,” said the young wife, “is he better now?” “Oh, he’s all right now; but he was bad at first. He seemed to come over quite faint, but I found his medicine in the cupboard ” “Found his medicine! Why, what have you been giving the child? There’s no medicine in the cupboard!" “Oh, yes there is, mum; it’s written on it” The girl triumphantly produced a bot tle labeled “Kid Reviver.” Father —You seem to look at things In a different light since your marriage. His Newly Married Daughter—Well, I ought to; after receiving 14 lamps and nine candelabras for wedding presents. His Son—Joel Green told me about them tall buildin’s. He says he’d jest like ter live in one of them. Rural Visitor —Why? His Son —So’s he could slide down all the banisters an’ go up agin in the ele vator. —Puck. Why is a horse the most curious feed er in the world? Because he eats best when he has not a bit in his mouth. His Retort. The ability to turn a graceful compli ment and say a graceful, tactful thing, at the right time, has won many a place at court, and advanced many social as pirants, says the Gentlemen's Magazine. M. de Fontenelle, then in his ninety seventh year, having just paid Mme. Helvetius many pretty compliments, passed her, on his way to the table, without seeming to notice her. “See,” said Mme. Helvetius, “what ac count I should take of your gallantry! You went by without looking at me.” “Madame,” said the old gentleman, . “if I looked at you I should not have passed by you.” Can Klit. Says the Guthrie (Okla.) Leader: The Rev. Mr. Newby, the new pastor of the Christian church, is likely to lose the confidence of his beloved flock. During the sermon last night he stopped abrupt ly and asked: “How many of you have read the Bible?” Fifty hands went up. “Good,” said the pastor. “Now, how many of you have read the second chapter of Jude?” Twenty-five hands went up. A wan smile overspread the divine’s face. “That is also good. But when you go home read that chapter again and you will doubtless learn something to your interest.” There is only one chapter in the book of Jude. "I don’t see,” said the old man, “why chopping wood isn’t just about as good exercise and just as enjoyable as play ing golf.” “It is the walking between strokes that makes golf so valuable as an exer cise,” explained the boy. “That equal izes matters and gives the legs the exer cise that they need.” Thus it happened that the old man went out into the yard and placed sticks of wood at intervals all around it, after which he handed the boy an ax and told him to play the full course. The Democratic party, through nearly all of its members of the United States senate, went on record in the senate in February of this year, as in favor of the state bank money system. What do you think of that, old Greenbackers and Populists?—Missouri World. Any man who will advise another to practice deception will himself practice it. Towne says he would have gone into the Democratic party in 1896, but that Bryan and Senator Jones requested him to aid in forming the silver Repub lican party, with the view of leading it into the Democratic party.—Missouri World. A Cincinnati reader wants to know if the postoffice pays its way. Yes, it pays its way, but its receipts are not enough to do it and pay the railroads about $30,- 000,000 a year more than a legitimate charge for pulling the mails. Their outrageous charges have been denounced by every postmaster general for the last 20 years, both Democratic and Republi can, but the railroad lobby has so far been powerful enough to prevent the rate from being lowered —on the con trary, it has been continuously increas ed.—Appeal to Reason. IF WE COULD 00 ANYTHING 7 Within the past month the editor of this paper has traveled thousands of miles. He has talked with Populists in a dozen states—-fuslonists and Mid roadera. The one cry of the fuslonists is “If we could only do anything alone.” I have a great deal of patience. I have spent the best part of my life in the advocacy of Populist principles. I have sacrificed position and political honors at that period of life when such things were dearest to a man’s heart. I have never wavered to the right or the left. I hare borne ridicule, business boycott and social ostracism. I stand now on the sunset side of life. The lengthen ing shadows warn me that I am ap proaching the shore of the Dark River, which every living thing must sooner or later cross. Yet even now the siren voice of fame and fortune whispers that it is not yet too late to drink of the waters of worldly success; to bask in the sunshine of political preference; to sit in the cool shade and bathe my wearied feet in the waters of content. From a material and selfish standpoint my life, possibly, has been a failure. The same time, energy and ability I have devoted to the cause of humanity would have given me prominence and affluence as a politician in either the Democratic or the Republican party. It would have given me wealth in the pursuit of business, made me eminent as a lawyer or noted in any of the fields of intellectual pursuit. I have sacrificed all for devotion to principle. I claim no merit for all this. I have only done my duty. I ask no compensa tion. But in making these sacrifices 1 have earned the right to be heard in the councils of the party. Twenty-six years of work along the lines of reform entitles me to a consideration of what I have to say. - The Populists builded wisely at Cin cinnati when they set up the claim that the reforms sought by them could never be attained through either of the old parties. They set up the danger signal against false issues. They designed and had manufactured a medal, and on that medal was Inscribed the motto: “Keep in the middle of the road.” It was illustrated by a picture, on one side of the medal, of two men in a wagon driving along a road. In the distance was a white bouse. One of the men carried a banner on which was inscribed the words: “People’s Party.” On each side of the road were stones, stumps and fallen trees labeled “Old party obstructions.” The road was straight as an arrow. There were no free silver bypaths or anti-imperialism highways to mislead the wayfaring Populist traveler. Could such a thing have been foreseen by that body it would have labeled them “Old party ob structions.” In its early history the People’s party had its traitors. It had its Macune, Livingston, Tillman and Hall. These sought, Herod-like, to throttle it in its swaddling clothes. But the child lived and grew. It was baptized in one of the grandest ovations in the history of the world, on the adoption of its first platform at Omaha. That demonstra tion is without a parallel. It was not applause; it was not cheers; it was the voice of Diety through the hearts and throats of men. For 45 minutes it last ed without a break. The declaration that went out from there gave a new in spiration to a suffering people. The heart of the nation was touched. We all know what a glorious campaign that was. The million votes cast was noth ing compared with the educational work accomplished. At Omaha we raised the danger signal against false issues. We plodded along in the middle-of-the-road. The babe born at Cincinnati was becoming a young giant. The campaign of 1894 nearly doubled our vote and advanced the educational work. The old party politicians stood aghast at the growth of the young giant. The administra tion of Cleveland drove thousands of Democrats into our ranks. The logic of events rang out in a voice of thunder in defense of our principles. The year 1896 drew near. The Dem ocratic Phillistines held a council. The men whom we had trusted and elected to congress became our Delilahs. They invaded the sanctuary which had been forbidden them by resolution at Oma ha. The platform was trimmed and fusion effected. Thus the young giant, shorn of his strength, was made to labor in the treadmill of his enemy—to grind corn for Democratic candidates. Four years have passed since that memorable campaign of 1896. The wreck and ruin wrought by fusion must be apparent to all. With few excep tions the Delilahs who wrought the ruin have been discarded by the political libertines whose embraces they sought. The compensating hand of fate has banished them from the public arena. They have perished as all things cor rupt, immoral and useless must perish. What few are left must soon be crushed in the fall of the temples of political paganism. Thus briefly have I gone over the history of the People’s party. And to what end? Read and see. “If we could do anything!” These words are ringing in the ears of half a million of Topulists. What answer can I make? What would Christ have said to the apostles had they used the same language? “Go preach the gospel,” was his command. It was a work of education. On an ear of corn every grain may be destroyed but one, and yet it is possible through that one to again replenish the earth. There was a time in the dark ages when it seemed that every senblance of virtue, truth and justice was crushed and banished from the face of the earth. War, rapine and plunder reigned supreme. It was the age of destruction. Philos ophy, are, culture and'refinement were shining marks for the instruments of torture and death. Amidst all the car nage—this carnival of death—men • ■*? ■... 4 • ' “** f THE RBPRBBRNTATIYB, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1900. I sought retreat in the HUfiteaus of the mountains, and there, life of her mitage, hogged to thAr 33 bosoms the grand truths of the univetfce, the result of the labor of centuries,' the love of liberty, the accumulated 1 learning of r.ges. When from sheer exhaustion incarnate man rested ’’again on his arms, these men sallied’ forth from their caves and Illumined the world with the riches of the archives they had so carefully guarded. The truths which they brought forth from moldy tombs have conquered the world. “If we could do anything!" We can. We can go on with the work of educa tion. In 1896, under fusion, there were some things we could not say for fear of driving away Democratic votes. There were some things the Democrats could not say for fear of driving away Populist votes. About all that was left for us to do was to make faces at the Republicans. It was a campaign of vituperation. We joined the Nega tion army. We “denied the allegation and denounced the alligator.” We dodged and twisted and squirmed. We prostituted our principles and our man hood to elect a few people to office. We humiliated ourselves for the purpose of having our mail handed out to us by a Democrat instead of a Republican. -We did this because some one called it pa triotism. We lost the fight, and what was worse, we lost our self-respect, and the respect of the people. What can we do? Retain our self respect. Stand by our principles, our manhood and our banner. Before you vote the Democratic ticket, or for any one who is allied with the Democratic party, examine its record. It went Into power in 1892 on pledges to reform the tariff and restore free coinage of sil ver. The Wilson tariff measure was a stench in the nostrils of honest men. But the very first piece of legislation the party enacted was to wipe out the only silver law left remaining on the statute books. It defeated five free silver bills in one day, and as fast as the clerk could call the roll. If placed in power because of its pretended op position to imperialism it could not be relied upon to redeem its promise. The real bulwark against imperialism, at home and abroad, is the People’s party. The place for the anti-imperialist is in its ranks. ' ■ In every state where fusion prevails it is led by men who are clamoring for office. In every convention where it is advocated, it is by office holders or office seekers. Fusion means the joining to gether of two organizations holding uifferent views. The lpond of union Is based upon a division of the offices. Two things are necessary for its suc cess. A compromise of principles and a division of spoils. Eliminate either of these and fusion fails. There is'no patriotism in a division of spoils or compromise of principles. It is making commerce of politics. It is crucifying humanity on the cross of inconsistency. It is selling virtue on the block to the highest bidder. It is dragging honor in the dust and exalting political du plicity. It makes the political juggler of more account than the patriotic statesman. It places political chicanery above patriotism. It licenses the politi cal medicant to ply his vocation, and places a premium on demagogism. It promotes confusion, invites corruption, leads to aisension and ends in vituper ation and dissolution. It is too big a price to pay for the defeat of either of the old political parties, even if that defeat was assured. When that issue is not assured fusion is folly—it is worse, it is a crime, because it burns to ashes, on the altar of selfishness, the hopes of the people. W. S. MORGAN. Tbompion Deserts Fusion. Hon. Cyrus Thompson, who was nomi nated by the North Carolina fusion Pop ulist convention in April for governor of North Carolina, by acclamation, and the most popular Populist leader in that state, has repudiated Bryan and Steven son. On August 30 he wrote a letter to J. P. Sossamon, organizer of the true Populists in North Carolina, as follows: “I do not propose to make any speeches in the presidential campaign, or to take any active part In it one way or the other. I would have voted for Bryan and Towne, but I will not vote for Bryan and Stevenson. This much you have read in the Caucasian. If I vote at all I shall vote the Midroad presidential ticket. “Very truly yours, CYRUS THOMPSON.” Mr. Thompson tersely expresses the position of the great mass of honest fusion Populists In the United States. They might have swallowed Bryan and Towne, but they will never indorse an absolute surrender of their party to the organized, red shirt Democracy.— Kentucky Tribune. i <1 The Clover Belt.
