each month It is to be a 25 cent magazine and con ducted on a large scale The cover design by Mr Alfred Brennan is exceedingly attractive and represents two opposite types of read ersan old bookman

Louis Evan Shipman Henry Turrell and John B Tabb MISSTATING HISTORY One of the assertions now being made by Republican speakers calls for an emphatic denial by every one in terested in the truth of history It is declared that the panic of 18934 was a result of the passage of the Wilson tariff bill by the Democratic congress There was probably never a more widelyrepeated falsehood nor one that is more generally believed and yet it is a matter of common knowl edge that this panic was under full headway before President Harrison left the White House In truth the bonds for a popular loan had been en gaged before Mr Harrison went out of officeBetiring from office at the end of his first term Mr Cleveland left a large surplus in the treasury Returning- for his second term he found a deficit The Wilson bill was productive of far more revenue than the McKinley bill the high schedules of which put a severe check on importation and creased the custom receipts The Sherman bill and the McKinley hightariff bill were the real factors n the panic which began during the Harrison administration but which reaches its climax after Mr Cleve inauguration Glasgow Times Through the courtesy of some friend we have received a copy of the Syracuse Kan Journal and we notice that our old friend T M Grissom is on the Democratic ticket as a candidate for county treasurer We have known Mr Grissom from childhood as we were boys together in Adair cone ty Kentucky and have chased rabbits hunted grapes haws wild ingerns and gin seng in the same wood and scratched our shanks and punctured our feet in the Same brier patch and might have killed squirrels with stones in the same Mulberry tree But for all that Marshall was a splendid boy always conscienclous mall he did We used to regard him an exception along that line for a boy He has grown to manhood has settled in Southwest Kansas is in business at Syracuse and has represented his county in the state legislature and made a good record we have been told He now asks to be honored with the office of treasurer of his county and If elected we are sure he will dIs- charge the duties of that office with credit We have not seen him for many years but If he Is a straight up rightman thathe was a hoy he will do to tie toMoody Texas Courier TIDINESS IN TIlE HOME wosmen often is that of becoming generalfcompany is not expected The wives of men witha limited income are they who are most prone to err In this respect from a foolish idea that dowdiness means economy but nothing is more fatal to the happiness of a family than the unfortunate notion that any thing does when we are alonewe must keep our finery for those occas ions when we have visitors Many a man Is tempted to leave his home tired of constktiy meeting a shabby M ri l untidy wife and to seek amusement and gayety elsewhere On their re turn from business husbands or brothers like to see their wives or sisters ooking fresh and neat and attractive No extravagance need be indulged in a blouse of some bright color a clean collar a bow of pretty ribbon and the hair neatly and becomingly arrangers will make all the difference in the cheerfulness and attractiveness of the home The husbands also should be careful to remove all traces of dust and grime of the office or work shop and pay a little attention to their toi let before taking their places at the table or fireside HINTS FOR HOUSEWIVES Prepared chalk Is an excellent cleans er for jewelry The knife used for peeling a pine apple should not be used for slicing it as the rind contains an acid that is apt to cause a swollen mouth and sore lipsWhen a candlewax sperm or par affin is too large to put on the candlestick dip the end in hot water for a few minutes to melt down to the re quired size When ironing remember to rub the hot iron lightly over a piece of ordi nary yellow soap and the clothes will look much nicer and the work will be done much quicker Black lace may be washed in warm water to which a little borax has been added in proportion of a teaspoonful to a pint This lace should never be dried by a fire as it will turn rusty Tospongeit use an old black kid glove GOVBILL TAYLOR Refugee W S Taylor whose name was so familiar to Kentuckians about the time that Gov Goebel was assas sinated had his gun out again last Monday night This time it was in Indianapolis and not in Frankfort and was for tbe purpose of preventing the illegal unconstitutional and un warranted eviction of himself from a seat in a street car which he claimed his money and his freedom and his civil liberty entitled him to But the street car conductor thought different ly and would have thrown him from the car into the street gun or no gvn had ho not forked over the price Taylor got on a street car and got off at the Dennison hotel getting a street car transfer ticket from the conductor which was good only on the next car passing He went into the hotel and watched the billiard game for awhile and then boarded a street car handing the conductor the transfer ticket which was refused for the reason that its time had expired The conductor insisted upon pay and stopping the car and calling the motor man was in the act of putting Taylor off the car when Taylor put his hand to his hip pocket and said Gdyou- I will put a bullet through you The conductor told him he cared nothing for his gun and would throw him off if he didnt pay which he finally didThe passengers were disgusted with the scene of an exKentuckian an ex Governor and a staunch advocate of honesty and civil liberty using his gun in order to beat a street car com pany outof the price of a ride and the street car company when asked to discharge the conductor applauded his actions and commended his courage One of the passengers on the car said he Intended to lay the matter be fore Gov Durbin and show him what a cur he was harboring from trial but Gov Durbins constitutional deaf ness frequently gets very acute and the Taylor trial at Frankfort will con tinue to be postponed from time to time ORATORY You have heard of school boy orato ry We found the following on street this week written in a neat hand Not long ago I sat on the grassy bank of a crystal stream with my love by my side as the king of day slowly sank into the forest that lay across the way as the birds sang their last song as the isles In the West took on their golden hue that only comes at tlie close of day and some tiny stars were being reflected in the bubbling waters below us It was a spot where Nature had shown her handlwprk where the birds when they had chosen their mates would gather to render their songs otexultatpn All was as sweet as lithe last sl hof evening that shuts the tones And there I topic a dell i r7- r t tc 0 k cate dimpled hand in mine looked in to a face that contained all the features known to feminine perfection and as the two large blue eyes looked into mine I told loves sweetest story She dropped her head all draped in ringlets of richest curls and a delicate beautiful blush danced playful on her face Then we strolled from the mur muring stream to the summit of a mountain where surely Nature bad paused as she passed over the Earth and strewed with uusparin hand the diversified seeds from which had sprung all the beauties which words are Inadequate to describe Delicious odors were wafted to and fro on the unseen wings of the evening zephyrs arid we looked down upon the golden Moon as she came peeping over the Horlson in her mild splendor shooting gleams of softest radiance at the twilight Then I repeated the story that was told beside the rippling waters and as she held out her little hand white as the driven snow and pledged herself to love me ever my heart rioted reck lessly through my anatomy but when I recovered my equillirbium I put my arms around her shapely waist and drew her to my heaving shirt front and as I was in the act of steeping my lips in bliss I awoke and loi to find in my arms only a feather pillow and Instead of being on a mountain I was on a shuck mattress under which there was nothing but pine slats and I thought why should the spirit of mortals be proud SET THE HOBO TO WORK In commenting upon the reported lack of field laborers to harvest the grain of the Northwest and the cotton of the South the Boston Transcript suggests that it would be an excellent thing to utilize the tramp by setting him to work on these jobs This suggestion is timely and may be earnestly recommended to the atten tion of the localities interested Some way should be devised by which the members of the hobo fraternity can thus be pressed into useful service They are vagrants many of them criminals and a menace to society in their idleness and proneness to wrongdoing They may be well required to work under compulsion Unquestionably also the general passage of laws to this effect would have a salutary effect in hastening the solution of the tramp problem The average tramp is too well to work The reason he does not work is because he has found out thathe can live without working If the hoboes now beating their way about the country were promptly taken into custody as va grants and made to work in the fields the hobollfe would instantly lose its charms for them The majority would settle down to some steady occupation This is so certain that it would be gratifying to see the experiment tried Jpst now the grain fields of the North west and the cotton plantation of the South seem to offer exceptional advan Cages for such an experimentSt Louis Republic JEALOUS LOVERS The grandest thing in the world is love It is the most beautiful thing too Strangely enough however it is apt to go handle hand with the ugliest thing which is jealousy The green eyed monsters favorite victims are sight is more terrible than the jealous rage of a lover The man who suspects his sweetheart of flirting with some one else is enduring such pain that he is hardly responsible for his actions Similarly the girl who sees that her fiance is faithless experiences a heartache which is little short of madden ingIt is sad when such suffering is without any real cause The manor girl who Jfta victim of unreasoning jealousy is to be pitied The insensity of their feelings can not be realized by an outsider True love is trustful above all things Sweethearts who trust each other are never worried with jealousy nor have they any need to be A true lover never flirts He would not be a true lover if he did A girl who really loves her sweetheart can bear to see him walking or talking with another girl without the slightest pang She knows well that there is only one girl in the world for him and that 1s her self In bis heart she reigns supreme just as lie does in hers Polite and attentive though be

ice is neither form ed nor made Speaker Hendersons withdrawal from the race to succeed him self in Congress from the Third Iowa district was unexpected to his party as well as to Democrats At Republican and throughout the country the party leaders are not reconciled to his action and a strong effort is being made to induce him to continue in the race but he has determined his position and will not recant His withdrawal is interpreted to mean a divide in the Republican hosts that the tariff reformers will line up on one side andthe adherents of protected infant in dustries tho in a high protective tarifft he admitted cloak that keeps life and vigor in the many gigantic trusts that con trol nearly every article of American commerce will show up on the other If it is not a split truly it points to a better day It shows that Mr Henderson is not in ac cord with the tariff reformers of his party and that in Iowa they have the lead that he intends to drive his party back to its old moorings or is taking ttTo shortest route from defeat from Mr Bois the Democratic nominee Regard less of his motives his withdrawal brings no comfort to his party throughout the country and it shows that the high duties of the Dingley law have lost their cohesive force in the G 0 P This was also shown by the Iowa in their last tion and the action of Mr Hender sona shows that he divideis coming

Republican State Committee adopted a reso lution excluding all negroes from the of the Republican party in Alabama This was an act of the Republican party mind you and not the Democratic The negro has been thrown out of the party for the reason that the ne gro no longer has a vote in Ala bama and the Republicans want to throw the negro overboard and build up a respectable white Re publican party It is not expect ed that President Roosevelt will make any kick about it for it is believed that he knew of the action before it was formally taken but the negro sympathizers of the Norththose who are spending their money and their time to bring about social equality will kick long and loud about it and dear old Boston will go into hysterics because the negro has at last been kicked out of the back door of a Republican convention hall Larue Herald The above recites a condition where the G 0 Party is dumping the Negro and bidding for the white voters to join their organi zation Truly the Democrats of Alabama have a objection to the Republican party than the question of color They believe that this government should be run in all of its parts by the high est degree of intelligence and that the Caucasian race possesses all the prerequisites They oppose the fostering of trusts by direct or in direct party action they believe allIpower in the federal head The intelligent Negro ought to know that the Republican party is will ing to trade him kick him out of their party any time and every where if by so doing a gain is made It ought to impress him of the importance of his race vo

Knifley was dangerously close to the winner when all returns were in We do not know whether the cane was rightly placed but such compliment iary voteslfor our friend Knifley is not to our liking This

the tariff that Chairman Babcock of the Republican Con gresaional Committee himself ad vocated this policy acting in obe dience to the demands of the Northwestern constituency whom he represented in Congress The fact that Mr Babcock has since been both wheedled and bulldozed into the protectionist ranks does not altar the situation in the remotest degree The popular demand for tariff revision

chairman of the republican congressional com mittee declared that it is a rule productsheon market to demoralize it And in orthis way he justifies the fact that the protected manufacturers in this country sell their goods abroad rsfor a smaller price than they de mand at home The Chicago Tribune republican while agreeing with Mr Babcock that it would not be well to demoralize the home market says The case is dif ferent when a manufacturer exacts from domestic consumers a price shwhich is so high as to lessen the ability of the home market to buy his goods If the surplus is due to the unwillingness of home buy ers to purchase as largely at th unreasonably high price as they would at a reasonable price th e manufacturer is at fault and domestic consumers have just cause for complaint when goods are sold abroad by him at much lower prices than at home The pro tected American manufacturer owes his first duty to his home customers A moral obligation rests on him to supply them with all the goods they are able to buy at reasonable prices There are manufacturers who do not ac knowledge this obligation who re strict home sales by extortionate prices and then dump on the for oign markets the surplus they themselves have created Congressman Babcock ignores the existence ofsuch manufacturers did not ignore their existence a few mouths ago when he was ap parently anxious
