No. 10 L OUR CONSCIENCE FUND. It vi na Started tVUli a Dollar In the Year 1811. "In the yeur 1S11," says II. E. Arm strong In Alnsleo's Magazine, "un aiinnyuiouB citizen of New Yorlt sent a dollar to the treasury department at Washington with an avoviM that he had defrauded tlio government ami wanted to make restoration. A dollar mount . something to Undo Sam in those necessitous days when tho coun try verged on war with Great Britain, and It was a patriotic ns well as a pen itent net. The contributor was the founder of tho conscience fund, and probably he died lii the odor of sanc tity. "During tho preceding thirty-five years of the life of the republic no one hnd despoiled the government, or the private conscience was callous. This New Yorlt man. Indeed, seems to have been tho one blemish on a golden era of national virtues, for fifty years were to elapse before there was an addition to the fund. "In 1801. Just after Sumter was fired on, the sum of Sti.OUO In bonds was re ceived by the treasury department, with a Vf'tter explaining that a sorely tried conscience could no longer en dure Its burden of guilt The plain In ference was that the sender, realizing tho United States would need a mint of money to carry on tlio war, Juilgea It not to be n time to defer repentance. Think of the bounty Junipers who prof ited by his contribution! "It was really useful to the country In another way. The conscience fumi. which had languished for want of a shining example, now became active. It has been quoted pretty steadily ever since. At the present time it umouuU to more than $:3()0.U00. Indeed, restitu tion Is getting to be the fashion, anil tho time may come when no one will take ndvnniyge of the government or do so only with the laudable design swelling the conscience fund when nuy emergency confronts Uncle Sam." THE AMERICAN FLAG. Aa It Anin-rtrcd Look Dcfore Detr ltiNw Muuc One. Few persons have noticed tho inter esting evolution on our (lag of the stripes and stars ns depicted In the ar mory of tho Ancients at the top of old Faueuil hall. Most persons are famil iar with tho story of Mrs. Iloss and the making of the first Hag of the free. But evidently it was, not Mrs. Itoss who originated the Idea of tho stripes. Down In the armory of the Ancients you will see first the broad red flag with the old English cross In its field. Nest a very similar flag, except thut the broad red becomes blue, with no red but In the cross itself on tho white Odd. Next the white flag, with its pine tros mid "Appeal to Heaven," whence i"ree our own state banner. Then it would appear that the fathers went hack again, for the next flag has the red and white longitudinal stripes, but in the field there are the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew worked out in red upon a white ground. The next flag restores the blue to the field. It, too, has the longitudinal red nnd white stripes nnd the combined crosses of St. George nnd St. Andrew, us in the British Jack, worked out in red and white upon a blue field. It was not till after that, upon the assertion of independence by the colonies, that Mrs. Itoss's flag appeared, and appar ently she only substituted for the dou ble crosses the circle of thirteen stars upon the blue field. The red, white and blue and the red und white stripes were nil In the flag generations before Mrs. Boss was born, ns the collection of the Ancients demonstrates. Boston Journal. A Ileal Nice Hall. In a Dublin paper some time since was a biographical notice of Robes pierre which concluded as follows: "This extraordinary man left no chil dren behind him except one brother, who was killed at the same time." When a man's wife tells him to "wait Just a second," he can form some idea of what eternity is like. Chicago News. The Original Sqneers. Tho grossest Injury which Dickens over Inflicted on a fellow being was his too accurate portrait of an inno cent man in his Squeers. That York shire schoolmasters were, as a rule, cruel nnd wicked enough It Is true, but the particular schoolmaster who was recognized and who recognized him self ns tho original Squeers seems to have been an exception to the rule. It will ho remembered that Dickens end his Illustrator traveled together to (ho north of England for the pur P' so of collecting material for "Nick leby" nnd especially for the Dotho boya episode. At Great Bridge they visited a boarding st-hool known ns I'.owes academy. The master, William Shaw, received the strangers with Rome hauteur nnd did not as much ns withdraw his eyes from the operation of peniiiiiklng during tho interview. I'hiz sketched him In the net; B-z described the net. Tho personal pecul iarities of William Shaw were recog nized In Squeers. Shaw became a butt of popular ridicule, lost his pupils and finally died of a broken heart. Y"t there Is abundant evidence to prove that he was a really excellent and kind hearted man, who was made to suffer for the misdeeds of his neighbors. Literary Era.

THE RIGHT TO VOTE. fn Fnixlniiil It In Withheld From Mnny Full Fledged C'itlicna. There are many full fledged English citizens who ore disqualified from membership In parliament and from taking any part in parliamentary el ac tions. Thus al! peers of tlio realm, ex cept those Irish peers who do not hap pen to have been eiected for life to represent their order In the house of lords, are burred from the exercise of franchise. So, too, are police ollicials, h!gh and low. They neither have a vote nor ore they eligible. Ineligibility to parliament extends to the Anglican clergy, to Scottish Pres byterian ministers and to the Roman Catholic priesthood. Undischarged bankrupts and those convicted of fel ony and who have not completed their sentences and are merely freed on tickets of leave are likewise disquali fied from election to parliament. So, too. are young men under the age of twenty-one and persons who, having been Judicially declared Insane, have not been legally restored to their civic rights and privileges. Insanity, however, does not consti tute any disqualification In the case of the upper house of parliament. Luna tics are permitted to take part in the divisions in tho gilded chamber, and nt the time when tho Irish home rule bill, enacted by the house of commons, was defeated by the house of lords no les than three crazy peers were brought down to Westminster by their keepers from the insane asylums in which they wore held under restraint and votei as hereditary legislators against l-me rule heina trrnnted to Erin.

Hood's Sarsaparilla and Pills Are the medicines to take they do the work thoroughly and agreeably and never fall to do It. Hoods' are the medicines you have always heard recommended.

Hood's Sarsaparilla promises to cure and keeps the promise. Connecticut .tlylltolouT, Once upon a time to be more pre :lse. In the latter part of the eighteenth ientury ture lived n worthy Connecti cut dlvlnt' named the Bev. Samuel Peters. Peters was a picturesque per sonage In his way. but his fame rests mdrely upon the fact that he wroie n book. This is one of the most mar vidor.s works ever Issued from the uress. It was Mr. Peters, for example, who first discovered and made known to (he world that the founder of Yale rolloge was a Uev. Thomas leters, M'hieu'ly one of his own ancestors: that at Bellows Kails the wnier flowed o fast that It became ns bard ns mar ble, making It possible to float a crow bar upon It; that two most marvelous niiadiupcds. the "whappernioeker" and (he "cuba" (evidently the ancestors of the Jabberwocki roamed wild In the Couut-ctit'Ut forests, nnd it Is also from Mr. Peter that we tirst learn of the famous incursion of the Windham frogs. But It was In theVnrly Jurisprudence of Connecticut that this expatriate made his most interesting discoveries. He informed his English renders and most of them believe the story de voutly to this day that the citizens of the state were forbidden by law to make mince pies, to play on nny In strument of music except the drum, trumpet or Jewsharp, and that every male must have his hat cut round, "ac cording to a cop," the model preferably being the hard shell of a pumpkin.
