Do yon know tliat in 1850' you
owned 85per cent, of the taxable
property in the United Slates?
Again, do you know that it is now
conceded that yon do not own oyer
24 per cent, of the yalne ofthe tax
able property? Can yon tell how
this vast shrinkage has occurred?
Do yon know that had your inter
ests increased as fast as protected
interests that you ought to be
worth $20,000 to the family on the
average. Now don’t yon feel and
know that there is something car
dinally wrong in the republican
The greatest good to the great
est number is the true, theory of a
democracy, and don’t you feel like
the odd man in a baker’s dozen?
Do yon know that your present
congress has fastened upon you
overg $100,000,000 for pensions,
some $18,000,000 for rivers and
harbors and untold millions put in
prospective for one thing and an
other? Do you know since the
war you have paid in taxes, one
way and another five times the
amount of the national debt, and
by republican legerdemain that
debt represents'as great value to
day as it did at the close of the
An English woman resident in
Syria reports the discovery near
Beyroot of a bedstead made of
gold and silver and inlaid with
precious stones. An inscription
upon it in English characters states
that it'belonged to Eleanor, Queen
of England. The bedstead was
discovered in a cave, and is sup
posed to have been placed there for
security when Edward I. left for
Unless we can accept the theo

The cost of the proposed Nica
ragua Canal is now placed at S65,-
000,000. The distance between
the oceans is 169 miles, but only
twenty-nine .miles, of .canal will
have to be dug.. The San Juan
Eiver must be deepened, and some
artificial basins constructed in the
valleys of other streams. Lake
Nicaragua affords fifty miles of
free, sailing. The Suez Canal,
which was cut out of the soil aid
sand for 100 miles, cost $81,000,-
A peculiar freak of nature was
discovered at Palmyra a few days
ago. A farmer’s wife brought in
from the poultry yard a' large
hen’s egg; On examination it was
found to contain a well-developed
yolk and white together with a
well-formed egg of smaller dimen
sions, the size of a guinea’s egg,
with a shell as solid as the outer
An English scientific person has
discovered that sitting down is an
aquired habit. The majority of
mankid do not sit, but simply
squat, or,/as it is sometimes said,
sit on their heels. This position,
the scientific person thinks, is the
natural one, while sitting on a
chair is an artificial one.
A huge catfish was found alive
imbedded in a bollow log in a mill
dam at Martindale. It swam in a
small hole when a little fish and
was unable to find its way out and
grew in thelog.—Exchange.
Here is one of Sam Jones gems:
“Take this thing of pensions. I
told a gathering ou union soldiers
not long ago, that if we rebels had
known how many of them we had
crippled we would have rallied and
come at them again. If they are
swearing the truth now they were
worse whipped than we were.”

According to the Detroit Free
Press, a Chinaman who won’t raise
ducks is looked upon as an enemy
to the Empire. What the hen

only a great deal more so. Duck

ducks’ eggs fried, boiled and scram
bled, are found on every China
man’s table at almost every meal.

she was treated for a month by
her family physician, but grew
worse. He told her she was a

and that no medicine could cure
her. Her druggist suggested Dr.
