production a measure oil praise that an admiring people would gladly bestow if the executor ot the possess a variety oJE pecu IWrkdidnot make it go against the gr in of folk to say nice things of the handiwork of the individual who is full to erflowmgeccentrical vanities The artist who paints a beautiful pic tuile and then proclaims that mypic ti4is a masterpiece detracts from of hist work but if he goes nolfurther with his foolish declaration and is content with simply praising his picture v people in admiring the strength of his work may forget the weakness of the artist but if he goes beyond and declares r My picture is a masterpiece and the picture of the thr fellow is a blUr and a pretense he steps over the line of decency an- dreanand allows his brazonegotism to dkub the product of his brush The picture of the other fellow may be aj pretensea conglomeration confusion of illblending colors yet it is ba i taste for the more successful ar tist to slur the work of his endeavor

the picfbres of the other fellows are pretenses dn em theyre sh rt horses twof oranickel upstarts mouthing popinjays and dizzy daubers put the foot of public opinion upon their necks and muzzle them like the snappers in the kennel of bull pups In hisfrenzy Mr Watterson paints pictures of misrepresentation and becomes irritated if some fellow paints one in contradiction jHe throws rocks into our shanties and insists that we ought not to throw rocks into his man sion The editor of the Qourier Journal paints wonderful wordt pictures as tounding In their brilliancy but his pictures jbf today unlike his pictures of other pays haye not those logical touches that appeal to reason Since Mr Watferson has laid down the Dem ocratic brush and is painting with a brush of awkward make and curlirig bristle alternating asi it were b e between lpiSin and Republican ismIt is ptain to see that his nerve is unsteady For a long time Mr Wa terson has painted no Democratic pic tures and all that the good Dem ocrats of Kentucky have seen to en courage tiem since the Courier Journal painted its ugly picture in 1895 and de teat d Wat Hardin are the very crud pictures painte3 at odd times by an i 8 literate in the garrethiding from the rentman and trying to fi out between touches what the ureI yule Paper Company will do to he fails to meet that draft Its awful Mr1 Watterson to be cornered in that style when you feel called upon to write something to save the Democratic par ty and thereby save the country But Mr Watterson is truly a genius indisputably the greatest editor in the whole wide world Lqng after we of the varmints and reptiles are for got andover our mouldering dust the seasons of the centuries willihavegrown myriads of crops of tangled wild wood the green grave of Henry Wat terson marked by an imposing monument will attract the eyes of the generations yet to be born and they of that day will say as we of this day have said Mno greater editor ever lived Mr Watterson is eccentric but there are thosewho contend that eccentric ity is a part of genius This being true It is obvious that to be a genius means also that room must be given in the make up of the man for his pe culiar characteristics and that allow ances must be made for occasional overflows and breaks in the dam But the trouble with Mr Watterson is briefly this Having overflowed so many times during thepast dozen years the levies arerdown and the waters have left the channel and have lost that power that in other days cane with the current What wje want to do is to mend the levy force the river back to its chan riel restore the lost power and start Democratic mills to grinding with CourierJournal water We haye tried to grind without this lost power but our mills have turned slowly and our Democratic wheat is poorly groundbe- ing a sort of cheat fit only for the coons of the Republicnparty r But let usbecome a little more serif ous in this discussion it we may call it discussion Let us get down to busi ness as Mr Watterson is often wont to remark In the following manner the editor of the CourierJournal introduces one of the paragraphs from our remarks of March 4 From yet a third member of the guild of varmints and reptiles the following titbits are extracted at ran dom The writer it will be remarked is roused to such floods of mutiny and rage not by the Fuedists of the Moun thins or the NightRiders of the To baccobelt bringing prodigious loss and profound disgrace to our dear Ken tucky but by the disposition of a piece of pie He is still harping upon the SefiatOTship 4Itis a fact ot which the CourierJournal is aware that every effort was made to in duce the bolting Democrats to name the maneven Mc Crearyany decent white man and the Beckham followers assured them that they would stand with them and elect the man or their choice But they not only refused to consider but refused to listen Beckham consented to withdraw from the race and also promised to do all in his power to elect any respectable Democrat that the bolters would name but they rejected his offers and turned a deaf ear to his entreaties fIf this be true the CourierJournal deserves to lose the confidence Of its readers and Gov Beckham deserves his requital The middle paragraph set with in dentation is the product of the var mint who presides over the desti nies of The Springfield Sun Note that we say in this paragraph that Beckham consented to withdraw Also note that Mr Watterson says If this be true the Courier Journal deserves to lose the confidence of its readers and Gov Beckham deserves his requital We are assured by a member of the Legislaturea man whose veracity can not be doubted that our statement is correct and that Gby Beckham plead with the Democrats of the Legislature not to permit a Republican to be elect ed but to unite uponisome good Demo crat other than the nominee and elect him over Bradley If Mr Watterson desires the proof it may notbe impos sible to present it though we must say we fail to see wherein twill do good at 1 this tate day to requit soy Beck ham and to cause the CourierJournal to lose the confidence of its readers Other paragraphs from The Suns ar ticle pf March 4 are reproduced by Mr Watterson following which is the usual skinning done in Watterson ian style to a queens taste Then af ter a few side remarks on nightriding politics and their newspaper organs Mr Watterson continues I have been often asked whether I am ruffled by newspaper abuse Like ghostsbecause knockdown to regard it very seriously even when regarding it at all One gets hardened to being massacreed and drawn and dryGenerallythan horse play WattersonsIown pen that he is not ruffledby newspaper abuse We areglad that Mr Watterson has said sowe are glad he is hardened and considers that these iitarta tilts are meant for lit tIe other than horseplay There was a time when newspaper criticism ruffled the editor of The Sun Of course it doesnt happen to us ofteny Because we are not big enough game to to get shot at moren once in a while But since Mr Watterson has named us ijeptile and varmintsnake and standIup like a stone wall This conies next An excess of adjectives implies a poverty of ideas and the total absence of conviction The boys who thus indulge themselves where not drunken or by nature vicious are merely per bumpklnsscant thought or care for the force of language Like dwarfs and cripples immunityfropl Comment is unnecessary and we pass it fay with a wage of the han- dilingply the remark that ifaan excess of adjectives implies poverty of ideas Mr Watterson never had an Uidea in l1islifeHAdjectivesthey are the little tricks the editor of the CourierJournal uses when he climbs over the moon to knock the north star out of socket A hop a skip and a jump in which are surmounted twof paragraphs arid a bit of poetry we come to the following The belief has come to be universal that corrupt agencies are common to legislative bodies everywhere There should be some truth and then bf correcmglteevil If it be not corrected it will ultimately undermine and destroy not only our Republican system but our National and popular character But attacks wanton and senseless and indiscfimating do more harm than good and if my word is worth anything to my professional associates it would urge upon them the virtue of moderation alike in their tamper and their parts of speechc When the next General Assembly meets if the CourierJournal will de vote onehalf the space to a denuncia tion of lobbyist and grafters that it used to denounce Beckham these fellows will find it too uncomfortable tQ do business in Frankfort Naturally the Courier Journal is Democratic It was born that way But it broke loose from Democratic moor ings in 1895 and has been a sort of Ufree ship upon the high seas ever since bringing into port each tall Re publican cargoes which are fired at the Democratic party through hand books and circular letters But we have Mr Wattersons word for it that the old ship is going to fly the Democratic flag at Its masthead next fall and come asailing into Democratic ports with Democraoyiand halfpage pictures of Billie J Bryan Good Clap your hands gen tlemen and fellow citizens Cornfeed0 the old roan steer arid stuff the big horn buck with clover and well have a killing of these fatted creatures when the

telescopes to find the Americans on the Metropolitan stag There are only about ten in all and they are in the chorus says the New York Times Of this dearth of Americans a mem ber of the executive

have no professional c orus people In Europe the choru man or woman makes it a regular professlpn Generation after generation in a family often goes into it They know the roper toire which merlcans do

intended work Dont you be mislead by the sweet talk of the professional politician H- Is not in our line of business and his living is made off the stuff we raise and sell Politicians are probably a necessity but we can not be too par ticular about the sort of politicians we take up with It is not the purpose nor the teachings of the Union that there is any oyal roud to wealth or competency It is the firm belief however that there Is a good living for every man and if he gets what incoming to him he will be provided for in old age It is a mighty good time to have a big open meeting and invite all the people to come out and have a good time at the Union meeting place Nothing like a rousing open meting to help the initiation business and whoop up the enthu asm of the old members Dont let

the man who has a split log drag and uses it The price of fruit today Is three times as high as twenty years ago notwithstanding the f thnt there are three tree to one now as compared with then The best work of the Union now is to counsel the reduction of cotton acreage and urge the planting of a variety of all the things that you can raise at home for home use The next best thing Is to assist the lethargic- membersto get good seed Always and everywhere remember that the Union is not formed to help you to salon flowery s of ease This world is not bunt of the sort of things that are easy The

can get used to any thing afera time even to the interior of a fiery furnace Shadrach MqchacSi I and Abednego are cases in point Be sides Jimmy Murphy was not one to grumble it never occurred to him to find fault with his lot in life j Jimmys Appearance was an index to hlsmInd Nobody looking upon ihs inexpressive countenance would haVe credited him with imaginative powers beyond those of an intelligent mule He had vacant blue eyes and a reced ing forehead and his features gen erally proclaimed him what iiei wasf 1Butment There Was one other his twin brother Tony They were ideal twins these two like peas in a pod nobody could tell one from the other BUt this is nof saying much since there was always a doubt whether the twins themselves knew which was which Jluch was their folishness r Jimmy and Tony were in the same companyNo 4 Company Seventh Royal Irish Fusiliers The regiment was somewhere in the sentrys rear forming on of the supports Jimmy was about 300 paces ahead of tie piquet and his comrade being out of behind a sandhill he was alonetNpwwaenyou are in the solitary position of sentry at twoin the after noon in the desert not more than 17 degrees north of the equator you are apt to become sleepy Jimmy got very sleepy indeed but he knew his duty it was about all he did know and trove to keep awake V f Everything was very quiet the tiekt intense Now and again the sentky made an effort to keep awake lIt was always a slight effort therefore ineffectual aIdat length Jimmy dreamed a dream f i It was a vision within a vision and it had to do with the mirage It hfid been there all the afternoon a phdn city in golden and purple tints stretching across the desert It had atreets of vast length squares of great breadth many mosques with countles inlnatets and terrace piled on terrace and it was still as a city of the dead But now in Jimmys dream the atreets and squares grew full of hut man beings the terraces wire thronged the whole place was alive with men Its mighty queer thought Jimmy sleepily With a start and a wild stare around he was awake and conscidus of facing a rush of mena charge of the rebel troops They were close upon him he had no time to think Up went his rifle out rang the report Next moment the enemy were within touch of his bayonet arid theirs were Ashing around his head Then came menjinfcahkistriking at the surging foe The jpjcquet unlike Jimmy and fortunately 7 for him had not been caught napping Half blinded by the smoke half choked by the sand cloud raised iby many feet bewildered by the sudden ness of the attack yet unconsciously obeying the first law of nature Jim my laid about him vigorously Thanks to his want of watchfulness he wasf in the very vortex of the conflict j Thus passed theminutes Presently jt horseman dashed into the fight shouting an order as he came Th re was an answering charge from the kahki jackets and Jimmy almost Tied off his feet was hyrled on to the enemy They broke and fled Faith but Ive had enough fof that he panted when the lull came But a ringing cheer from th se around him here caused him to look up The enemy Were rapidly vanfsh iiirIBear a hand Jimmy said his brother and between them they car jied the wounded man into the rank whilst cries of Well done BraVo the Seventh h burst from a hundred d hoarse throats Whatfs your namei demanded a harp fatured

replied Jimmy jMiluting Murphy what 1 again asked ihe other notebook in hand Jimmy yer honor Well Jimmy Murphy was the reo foinder youre a fine lad and yjour 4 jrcgiment ought to be proud of you There was another cheer at this and Jimmy wondered at It Ai gallant a thing as Ive seen yet continued Jlmmy8 questlpner turnlng 0 an officer who nadttist come t wt tuP t It 1 saw the whole affair from the rise yonderand the way this lad tackled the three fellows surrounding poor Oonyers was simply splendid Sent two of em to glory and walked off carryinghim right t1lrough the fire of a score of black devils A right down gallant thing and deserves the V C by gad The little man a famous war correspondent and himself the bravest of the brave having delivered himself thus enthusiastically hurried away to send an atcount df the affair tp his paper t VVhen JiJtomy later on had been relieved an4was back In oamp he found himself the cynosurerof all eyes He was pitted on the back the men of the Seventh shook hands with him he was made much of and he wondered exceedingly1 As soon as he was able he sought Tony Whatsit all mane he Inquired Sure I dont know said Tony Vacantly Its mighty queer Faith n its that The sergeant said that the colonel ud be towM av it- Ye dotijt nothin Jimmy Atallt all MaYbetheyll give ye pack dhrill MaybQ4 It wudnt be the first toime r Maybe jtheyll shoot ye Ochon FAndJimmy made the Cross A little jater he was at attention before the officers and men of the Seventh absently listening to a long harangue from the colonel in which had he but understood it he was praised for his pluck and determina tion in saying the life of his superior officer at the risk of his own But midst the redoubled cheers of the whole regiment all Jimmy pondered was the question whether hed be shot or let off with packdrill At the 0nds of several days he vaguely felt that he had done something creditable though what that something was and how it had hap pened he could not explain to him self Once when he found himself alone with Tony he again reverted to the question that troubled him but Tony seemed as doubtful as ever Maybe its because ye saw the Inimy first was all he hazarded and this Jimmy was fain to accept as the explanation of the honrs done him In time the Seventh were ordered home and a day came when Jimmy was taken into a beautiful place where before more generals and grand persons than he could countan elderly lady in a black dress pinned a little bronze cross on his left breast anrJimthy thought this mighty queer indeed Four years have gone by The Sev enth Roy l Irish fusiliers are once more on African oil The lines of Siiakln where th ire is more than enough to do to d fend the peninsula and its inhabitants from the forces of Osman Digna extend in a huge semi circle west of the own From Mount Gin erab on the south to the sea on the i ortheast where the desert begjhB and ends the sandhills are all occupied by the smalj army of defense Everywhre battles are frequent by day and bybnight the dervishes are already t6 descend on the outposts whenever the search lights from the warships inBotherem bay are nqt playing in their direction Now and against a reconnaissance In force ending In a conflict of more than usual importance will drive the enemy into the desert but he never seems to get his quietus and very soon comes up smiling for mother round Jimmy Murphy V C has seen some extremely active service in these en counters and on all occasions shown himself to be worthy of his distinc tion True he has not exhibited a further specimen of unusual gallantry but few then have the opportunity to earn morfe than one Victoria Cross Tony top has always done his duty and his duty is all that is expected of him The regiment do not look for more than that in his case He is not o shine with the effulgence of his brother Jimmy There is little change in the twins They still remain the biggest fools in the regiment or in the whole service for that matter and they have never been promoted Yet a distinction has tacitly been drawn between them Jimmy Is no longer the butt of the regimental wits It is allowed that a V C although in thie ranks is not necessrily of the ranks When on parade his comrades are pleased to think they are so to speak with the angels When they met him in the canteen they are glad to see that the angels are with them A VC Is a scarce commodity and to be made much of Widely1 separated as the brothers are in the estimation of their world they are however no whit divided in their relations to ono another Jimmy exhibits the same stolid partiality for Tony that Tony has always observed towards him Their affection Is nothing more tban that and it satisfies them both7 It wasiausy day A movement on

galloping eastward ambulance parties were bearing their quiet burdenS away to the hospital staff officers were busy in their quarters preparing reports for the war office saying as little of casualties and as much of glory as was becoming For a brief period peace reigned in the desert Out beyond where the battle had raged fiercest a search party still lingered looking for any unfortunate who might hive escapednotice With them was Tony The party were beating towards the town and Tony was on one of the flanks of the extended line He was not searching with any great degree pf activity and lagged somewhat behind the rest His weak blue eyes had a faraway look- sa though some troublous problem was engaging his thoughts He was very hungry and the question of dinner was agitaing him Therefore it was not until hf was tIght ovr a lying ina depression that he became aware pfit Tony stopped suddenly The prostrate roans back was all he could see Sure an its wan av the sivinth he muttered recognizing the uniform Is that you Tony asked the wounded nan Tony khew the voice He bent over and looked into Jimmys face It was the livid face of a dying man and for the first time in their lives it was possible to distinguish between the twins Are ye bad asked Tony Ay said Jimmy weakly Have ye any wather Tony to his credit had the bottle to his brothers lips almost before the question was asked Jimmy got some of the contents the thirsty sand had more but Jimmy looked better for his share Where are ye hurt asked Tony In me leg Tony look dand saw under the skirt of the tunic

of superficial knowledge than the y profound Reasoning of a deep thinker Versatile as he isf there is a certain sameness pervading all Ins utterances that amounts almost to monotony For instance there are three characteristics tfiai tQ some extent appear in every J tiding he ever wrote They might be cjilled ciphers by which he seems to stamp his products a kind of8 sign nianuel He never fails to use at least oneof them sometimes all They have become tiresome and monotonous but stilt he clings to them The first is some illustration or analogy borrowed from the gaming ta Wei of whose phraseology he isa past I muter The second is some quota 1 ti= from Hamlet with which play he seems more familiar than all other literature except ot course his own i ipirwiuctions of winch heisa devoted 4anirer Thethird and most infallible e which he invariably uses even when ii pmetimes omits the others is his tifforc to prove In everything he writes r 1or utters that while others may err he iinwjelf was always right and never made a mistake ih his life With un tfedueking vanity and prodigious nerve Vii eever loses an opportunity tofdenL f 0ootrate that he alone of all men has irt gifted
