Tubsdat, April 30, 1895.
AtTOKncr General Molosev has
given an opinion that a tax assessor
cannot delegate his duties of assess
ing to a depot j. Here is a tip for
youi Mr. Freeman.
James R. Garfield is a candidate
for state senator from the Mentor
district. His distinguished father
started in political life as state sena
tor from the same district.
The Sunday Star-Sajings. of St.
Lonis. has published an anniversary
number, highly illustrated and in
every way cretitable to the highest
art and most enterprising spirit of
metropolitan journalism.
Springfield Register: The Pall
man Palace Car company has began
serving notices upon tenants who are
behind in their rents 'that unless ten
ants pay the amount due the com
pany, suit will be brought to forci
bly eject them from tbe houses they
now occupy. And yet the Illinois
legislature permits this monopoly to
continue to sandbag the public.
Tub supreme court of the United
States will sit again May 6, in all
probability with a full bench, for the
purpose of reconsidering the consti
tutionality of the income tax law.
Two counsel will be heard on each.
side. What the result will be is dif
ficult to conjecture, but it is hoped
that a majority of the court may be
led to declare the law as a whole not
inconsistent with the constitution.
As the Freeport Bulletin argues, the
law is being opposed vigorously by
the rich people of tbe country only,
and on the pretext that it is class
legislation. On the same plea
class legislation the poor people of
the country have had abundant rea
son to feel aggrieved, for under the
republican robber tariff 80 per cent
. of the expenses of the government
were collected from persons owning
only 20 per cent of the wealth during
a period of nearly SO years. The
prayer of every poor man should be
that the law will bear the scrutiny
of the most rigid examination and
that it will ultimately be declared
constitutional.
tetanias; Prosperity.
The New York Tribune, one of the
most vociferous calamity howlers
during the campaign of last fall, has
changed its views since the repeal of
the McKinley high tariff law and tbe
enactment of the Wilson bill by the
democratic party, as will be seen by
the following clipping:
"The general uplifting of prices
continues. Cotton reaches 9 cents;
wheat rose above 61 cents Saturday;
Bessemer pig is quoted at 91.90 at
nttsburg; leather and hides still ad
vance, forcing manufacturers to ask
10 cents per pair more for shoes
instead of 2 cents; coke is normally
higher, though it ia claimed that
regular customers are supplied at
less than option quotations; oil has
mounted so wildly that sharp reduc
tions for two days excite no surprise.
and stocks are mounting, the aver
age for railroads having . risen 91.50
toe last week, and tbe average for
trusts having risen 77 cents. All
these are signs of reviving confi
dence, and deserve attention none
the less for the apparently artificial
character of the advance in some
instances. If conditions favoring an
advance did not exist strong and
sagacious operators would not be
risking their money on that side in
so many markets. Excess and
flightiness no doubt characterize the
rise in some articles and give it a
fictitious look, but it is undeniable
that a much more hopeful feeling
prevails in nearly an quarters."
la For It.
The captain turned pala.
"It there no hope?" he asked in a
trembling voice.
"None. " answered the executive offi
cer solemnly.
Tbe commander raised his trumpet to
hia lips.
"Man the lifeboat!" he shouted
through tbe tempest.
A moment later he left the ship.
No, she was not sinking. She was
four hours late, and the captain pre
ferred to take his. chances with tbe
storm to remaining on board and get
ling hia picture in the newspapers.

"I have used several boxes of
Hood's pills, and several bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla. and have found
that they are excellent. I was

i. THE PARIS BOULEVARDS.
A aTaleldneeeple Tlew ml life la Mm
Reekm Elan.
In no other streets in the wide world
can one see such varied types as on the
grand boulevards of Paris. Why, a trip
through tbetn. on top of an omnibus,
from tbe Bastille to the Madeleine
and it takes perhaps an hour will give
yon a kaleidoscopic view of life to be
found nowhere else. At the Bastille,
the Boulevard des filles da Calvaire
and dn Temple, you meet the laboring
classes, on Sundays in their "bestest
best" and on weekdays in white
blouses and cotton jackets. Beyond the
Place do la Republique the picture
changes. Here are the little merchants
and shopkeepers and some large ones
too. Farther on, up near Rue Vivienne,
i.ow blood enters this great artery of
Paris it is tinged with a golden sheen,
for we are in the heart of the exchanges,
among brokers and coulissiers aye.
among just such types as Zola drew
from for his book entitled "Money."
Now the shops are becoming more gay
and beautiful, the cafes more elegant,
and the siren voices of Paris make its
joys even more alluring and more tempt
ing. To appreciate it you must do more
than view it from an outsider's stand
point. You must take part in it,live in
it, and for tbe time being forget that
you ever were anything bnt a confirmed
and hardened boulevardier.
There, follow my advice, and I will
guarantee that yon will see Paris as
Paris is and not as tourists see or de
scribe it Sit down with roe at tbe ter
rasse of yonder cafe and watch the
stream of humanity as it flows by.
What a cosmopolitan throng I Rich and
poor, merchants and clerks, unmistaka
ble Britishers, blase journalists, fetch
ing looking actresses, chin little Pari
uennes of tbe petite bourgeoisie, news
boys and beggars aye, and Americans,
too all "touching elbows," as tbe
French say. Is it not dizzy to look npon,
in its whirling activity, its abandoned
merrymaking?
See that young exquisite with pointed
patent leather boots? Poor fellow! He
has mislaid his brain and might find it
there. He is one of the society men of
the boulevard. F. R. Layland in Home
and Country.
Little Snpentitioaa.
"I don't believe there is a man living
who is without bis pet superstition, "
remarked a secondhand furniture man.
"We constantly have people who sell us
articles of household use and come in
after a few weeks sometimes only days
and try to buy them back again, with
the explanation that they have had 'bad
luck' ever since the sale was made and
never wonld have good luck again until
the bargain was undone.
"One woman who had sold ns her
grandmother's clock fairly wept be
cause it was gone before she could buy
it in again. This idea is not confined to
uneducated or ignorant people by any
meaus.
"At this very time I know a Louis
ville business man of great culture and
refinement who is" vigorously pursuing
an ' old wooden desk which he owned
many years ago a desk on which he
marie an enormous amount of money by
a few lucky strokes of his pen. The
desk passed from hand to hand and out
of his possession. He is now earnestly
endeavoring to trace it and purchase it,
believing that recent business reverses
and hard times will flee away if he can
only stretch his legs once more under
that same old desk. "Louisville Courier-Journal.
With the Charcoal Brazier.
Many cases of suicide have thus been
brought about by means of burning
charcoal, of which one example may
suffice, that of son of Berthollct, the
celebrated chemist. This young man be
came affected with great mental depres
sion, which rendered life insupportable
to him. Retiring to a small room, he
locked the door, closed up crevices which
might admit fresh air, lighted a char
coal brazier, and with a second watch
before him noted down tbe time, to
gether with his sensations as tbe gas ac
cumulated. He detailed tho approach and rapid
progress of delirium until the writing
became larger and larger, more and
more confused, and at length illegible,
and the writer fell dead npon the floor.
Notes and Queries.
Conat D'Oreay.
The most splendid person I ever re
member seeing had a little pencil sketch
in his band, evidently intended for
publication through Thackeray's good
offices, which he left behind him on tha
table.
It was a very feeble sketch. It seemed
scarcely possible that so grand a being
abould not be a bolder draftsman.
He seemed to fill the bow window with
radiance, as if he were Apollo. He
leaned against his chair, with one el
bow resting on its back, with shining
studs and curls and boots. "Chapter
