Ti:i"rn crushed to earth shall rise arrain. We will wait for that 1900 crop of campaign roosters. Woxkf.k what the election cost the syndicates, anyhow? If the ether fellows can stand it, we will try to get along somehow. The weather today was exceedingly besoming the day after such an elec tion. Kn:iit children at three births is tlic reoord of Mrs. Childless, of Elk horn, Ky. Weil now we'll see what thope won derful boasts of p ospcrity amount to anyway. This talk about the patriotism of the r ttople is all bosh. Cold, hard caih did the business. As president of the McKinley bank, Mirk 1 1 aim u is the most prominent individual in the country. Bct for benveii'a sake spare us frbru the man who knew it would happen just that way exactly. It can now be snfely set down that boodle end intimidation are the con trolling forces in American politics. One thing is certain, McKinlv has probably become safely and perma nently ancnorea on tiio money ques tion. The .banks over the country opened as usual this morning and trains were making schedule time on all railroads. After all. we don't know but what McKinley is entitled to the commis eration of all thoughtful people. Four years uuuer tne thumb of Mark Hanna isn't a particularly delightful anticipation.

Lord, from the inriir-M no 1 republican or democrat, who never knew ho he sto.ul before election, but is now satisfied that he voted with tne wicnmg side. Tins is tna au of advertising and in every walk of life printers' ink oc. cupies a conspicuous place. One of ui must original inetnods of draw ing a crowd to church was used by a Minneapolis pastor. He distributed lodgers reading as follows: '-Ten lays ago I saw a dog light between Frank Thorn's buli do? and a thor oughbred Knglish hound.

Let democrats not be wholly dis hearttned and discouraged over the result of ye. t rday's eltc;ion. When inc nrsi sting or defeat disappears it will be found that considerable com fort niav ho extracted from the re turns. Mckinley's victory is sweep ing and tituiihatie, according to As sociated l'lrss reports, but when a sober analysis of the existing condi tion is made, it is surprising that ine neniccrais saven anything from thw wreck. As it is Bryan has car ried the southern states and those west of the Missouri almost solidly. Besides, the republican majority In the next r.ungr-ess will be largely re duced. The cause of bimetallism is not cetd, however, neither is the public career of William Jennings Brvan cloned. Drunk with the fruits of their il'-ctttn victory, the trusts, syndicates and plutocrats that con trol and really are the republican party, will inaugurate a monetary and tariff system that will eventually viubd iqq ueuuie w rise ia tucii ight and sweep the pretenders ont ' power forever. The semblance of prosperity, which is sure to ensue through the combined efforts of the manufacturers and corporations, will onlv temporarilv keep the will of e people in abeyance, and when once the thin veil of deception is torn aside, the substitute of the once great republican party will be seen in all it niaeousness. remanent benefit will not adhere until bimet allism is established. The neoDle should already prepare to irird no their loins for the contest of 1900. hen under tha leaderahln nf that noble and brilliant champion of their rights, William Jennings Brvan. they will march on to certain vie- r7- Make Your Workmen ComfortaWM. A manufacturer, in gossiping about the best ways of handling workmen, says that the nature of the floor of the shop has a great deal to do with the amount of work that is got out of the operative staff. lie was once struck by tlie diflerence in the apparent activity of two sets of men working on similar jobs at the vise in two rooms of a large shop. One was in an old building and the other was in one of recent construc tion. In the' former the men stood easily and naturally at their work and showed no symptoms of a hankering for a seat on the bench, while in the latter the men were shifting their weight from one Joot to the other, throwing one leg upon the bench at every opportunity and showing every evidence of foot fa tigue. The superintendent guessed that the difference was due to the floors upon which the two gangs of men were stand ing. In the old shop the floor was of wood, springy to a certain extent and a poor conductor of heat. In the new shop it was of the most beautiful con crete, an excellent conductor of beat from the feet of the workman and as unyielding as granite rock. So the benches in the new shop were raised a couple of inches and each man was given a platform of wood that rested on twocrosspieces at the end and had a slight spring to it The foot weariness disappeared almost at once, and no further trouble was experienced. Which shows that the prettiest floor is not always the best for the workmen. Exchange. The Pretty Fanay. One of f ho most cheerful flowers of this and of my mother's garden was tho happy faced littlo pansy that under va rious fanciful folk names has ever been loved. Like Montgomery's daisy, it blossomed everywhere. Its Italian name means idle thoughts; tho German, "lit tle stepmother." Spenser called it "pawnee." Shakespeare said maidens called it "love in idleness," and Dray ton named it heartsease. Dr. Prior gives thnso names: Herb trinity, three faces under a hood, fancy, flamy, kiss me, pull me, cuddle unto you, ticklo my fancy, kiss me ero I rise, jmup up and kiss me, kiss me at the garden gate, pink of my Joan. To theso let me add the New England names: Birdseye, garden gate, johuny jump up, kit rnu about, nouo so pretty and ladies' delight All these testify to the affectionate and intimate friendship felt for this laughing and fairly speaking little gar den face, not the least of whose endear ing "qualities was that after a half warm, snow melting week in January or b ebruary this brightsome littlo "Ac- light" often opened a tiny blossom to greet and cheer us, a true "jump up ana Kiss me, " and proved by its bloom ing the truth of the graceful Chinese verae : Ere man Is aware That the spring 13 here The plants have found it out. Scribner's Magazine. The Uoon Will Never Change. The headline may give the reader tho idea that something has gotten wrong with our satellite and that in the fu ture Luna's fair face will not get through the regular phases of new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quar ter, as has been her wont since the time "when the mind of man runneth not to the contrary." Eut such, dear reader, is not tbcMdea wo mean to convey, but we do mean ex act ly what the headline says, that under existing conditions (and the conditions which have existed on the surface of the moon for jierhaps millions of years) it is a physical impossibility that tho face ct the moon should change one iota. There are neither outside nor inside in fluences that can be brought to bear to make a change in the configuration of "our silvery 6ister world. " Her inter nul fires have long since died ont and there is an utter absence of both air and water. Existing under such conditions it is utterly impossible that the face cf the moon should undergo change or dis integration even in the course of a hun dred million years.
