Ihis declaration is as antiquated
as the' hills, but notwithstanding
its antiquity, there are thousands
and thousands of people in the
world who are either ignorant of
its truthfulness, or do not believe
it to be true. This assertion
based upon facts tbat come under
the observation of each and every
individual at all observant of the
customs an d habits of the people.
The laboring classes of this
country complain fondly of .the
losses they sustain and tmrdens
heaped upon them. They complain
mnch of the injustice done them
through the tariff, which is but a
burden of indirect taxation. Of
this they have good and broad
ground for complaint, and are
right in clamoring for 'reform
this particular; they complain of
monied combines, of trusts, of mo
nopoly, of speculators, of those,
whom they term middle men, of
railroad opprassion, and weary
themselves very greatly over what
they honestly, and often rightly,
believe to be losses they sustain
through these. Because these la
boring people among us do this,
we have no censure for them. Tor
if they believe themselves wrong
ed they hayg:a right to complain;
and that through some, ai least, of
the mediums above mentioned,
there is heaped upon them bur
dens tbat are unjust and grievous
to be borne, there is adequate evi
dence to satisfy any thinking and
investigating mind. And we are
glad to see and to know tha't the
common people all over this coun
try are waking up to their own in
terest sufficiently to realize that
they are bearing unjust burdens,
and to begin to inquire seriously
whence these burdens come. Be
cause in no other way .will there
ever be begotten one grand rally
ing, legitimate effort upon the
part of the masses of this country
to free themselves from any
wrongs that may stand in their
way to progress and thrift. But
while we admit the justice of much
of the complaint of the working
people of this -country touching
the sources above referred to, yet
in returning to our text, and argu
ing our original proposition, allow
us to ask, by way, not of censure,
but of waking up thought on this
ljne, if one of the heaviest, if not
tne heaviest, losses that befall this
class of our people is not self im
posed,simply because they do not
realize and appreciate the, grand,
the incontrovertible truth that time
.is money? We ask this question
not to censure, not to upbraid, not
to. blame, not to condemn, but we
ask it in that higher, that nobler,
that purer spirit; the spirit of good
will to all people.
Now, reader, if you attempt to
answer this question, we suggest
that you ask this further question,
to-wit; are not those who are the
most open and loudest complain-
ers on this line, to be found among
those who lose the most time? In
your investigation, watch for the
truth here suggested. Have you
not seen and do -you not know in
dividuals who complain loudly and
talk much because they are
charged, it may be, 10 per cent,
profit on money or goods advanced
to them, and who at the same time
spend, weekly, from 16 to 24 per
cent, of the time allotted to work,
in holiday recreation orotherwiee?
The laboring man who spends one
day in each week away from Ms
business in an unprofitable manner
is carrying a self-imposed burden
of 16§ per cent, lost time. Can
any working inau pay out to no
profit such a per cent, of his time
and prosper? Is not this per cent
of loss much greater than the 10
per cent, paid for money accom
modations? Certainly it is, and
so will it Appear to each one of us
who realize that time is really
money. But when we loudly com
plain upon the street corners, upon
the highways, and everywhere of
the 10 per cent, taxation in money
levied upon iis by others, and at
the same time and in the same
place uncomplainingly appropri
ate 25 per cent, of our working
hours in idleness, we are, to say
the least of it, inconsistent, and ad
vertise the fact that we do not re
gard time as money. Reader, do
you spend, weekly, one day from
your business? If so, what per
cent, of your money are you week
ly paying out to no profit?

The republican members of the
ways and means committee have
prepared a tariff bill which they
think will catch the farmers. It
gives a small proportion of the
farmers the advantage of an abso
lutely prohibitory duty on Suma
tra tobacco, and increases the duty
on barley and hops and buck
wheat. These will benefit a few
farmers, mostlj in New England
and New York. It increases the
duty on wooden cloth and woollen
clothing, and cheapens the cost of
no article which the farmer has to
buy, except brown sugar. The
change in the taxes on wools and
woollens will benefit the owners of
large flocks, pastured on public
land, and injure the many small
farmers who keep their sheep as
an incident of gfeneral farming.—

afternoon, many perfectly reputa

three sons all in a row, a little

sky was very clear at the time.

supporters darted rays of all the

on board the steamer Alliance,
which arrived rt Jersey at night

the passengers. Not long ago a
phenomenon of a similar kind was
