1SSS. BEHIND THS SCENES. How a Governor and a State Treasurer Came to Understand Each Other. There is a good story of an amusing scone at a certain state capitol the other day, when the governor called the state treasurer into his office and de mandad his resignation. "I was just coming in to demand the same thing of you," replied the treaa urer. The governor looked surprised and hurt. "0, you needn't look so pious about it," said the treasurer. "Just calm yourself, and I may give you some good advice before I get through." The governor recovered sufficiently to say: "What I want you to know is that this administration can't stand the scan dais your misbehavior is creating. talked with you the other day about the Sunday drank, and since then that other story about your scrape with the girl has been published and certified to by no lees a personage than ex-Lieutenant Governor Felt. I had persuaded him to keep it quiet, and thought he had for gotten it. Now there will be no end to thi...

This system once fully established among a foolish people, what was wanting but that a few men should control all the money of the country and thus compel all the industrious to seek them and do what they might Gee proper to demand? Eead the account of Jo seph's management of matters in Egypt, and you will see the whole scheme laid bare. Knowing that after seven years of abundance would come years of famine, Joseph, as Pharaoh's prime minister, dur ing the plentiful years bought up all the corn and food that was for sale; then when the famine came he sold corn and food until, as the account in Gene sis says 'Joseph gathered up all the money that was found In the land of Egypt, and in the l...

Well, when I came to America, no matter how long ago, I brought a letter of introduction to Lee from an old comrade of his who had known him in Poland. Through Lee I became acquainted with a number of your public men; and for several years I have spent part of each winter at Philadelphia and New York. Being of no party, these men have talked freely to me and in my presence; and thus I have picked up some information which I have never disclosed until now. "You may have suspected, but I know that your rich public men, with Washington at their head, are planning an American monarchy modelled after that of England, with Washington as monarch.

At first the gold bugs rolled their balls three of them and sneered at it with contempt. Then they ridi culed it, and at last panic stricken at the prairie fire it had started, they try to answer it and the mails are oyer loaded with "replies" sent gratuitously to names on matrimonial, lottery and green goods lists in the handa of adver tising agencies. One of these is called "Coin's Finan cial Fool," by Horace White, the esmi foreigner whom even Joe Medill kicked out of the Chicago Tribune, and Bal mont brought into the Evening Post, under his own shadow.

In September the General Court was called together in special session, and an act was passed granting amnesty to all in rebellion who should take the oath of allegiance before January, 1787, and be of good behavior in the meantime; while the Governor was authorized to prepare for vigorous resistance to the rsbels if the revolt should not immediately cease.

13S1. 3 self. During our civil war complaint wa3 not un common that not even a young preacher was of the slightest consequence in the estimation of pretty young women when a pair of shoulder-straps was visible anywhere in the vicinity. So it has ever been, ' so it will probably always be. The daring soldier is woman's hero. Not that women love war and its carnage; not that they delight in butchery; not even that they care for martial millinery; but it is nature's law, founded in deep reason, that woman shall love courage, shall idolize valor; and there is truth in it that "The bravest are the tenderest, The loving are the daring." Nature forces the most timid of women to admire the man who will fight and to despise the man who will run. This cannot be laid altogether to the charge of the false notions encouraged by our savage civilization; it is natural that lovely women shall love manliness a3 strong men love womanliness, and to change this would produce a race bo degener ate that ...

1335, 5 .1 X . NOT PETTY PILFERING. The Abilene Reflector makes a de fense o! Governor Morrill's appro priation of state funds to pay private expenses. It says: GoTemor Morrill may hate bis faults, but nobody yet ever aooused him of petty pil fering, such aa the Pops charge him with in the anti-inaugural expense Touohers. He seems to hate been above board and square in the whole matter. That is to say, if those in whose hands the public funds are intrusted are "above board" in their misappro priation, if they simply take money belonging to the public for private use because it is in their hands for the time being, and do it openly, it is all right, and no one must inti mate that it is "pilfering." Coin's Fifamoial School is doing a grand work. It has not only given new views to hundreds of republicans and dem ocrats but it has converted thousands of Populists.

There is little in the letter worth noticing were it not for the high position occupied by the writer.

Does anyone for a moment believe that our boasted civilization can endure with so great a per cent, of our population unem ployed and reduced, in the common parlance of the day, to "vags!" Every part of the country has its quota of these tramps, and every lo cality has its method of dealing with them. Is it not about time to begin an inquiry as to why these men are tramps?

1S3& ii A WONDERFUL BOOK. The "Uncle Tom's Cabin" of the Present Generation. Editor Advocate: What a sensa tion that remarkable book, "Coin's Financial School," is creating in the country. Every intelligent man should possess a copy, and after reading it, hand to his neighbor, marking on it, "Read and circulate." And how the gold worshippers are worried over it, and what an effort they are making, not to answer it, for that they find im possible, but to break the effect of it on the popular mind. Its reception by the people reminds me of the greeting extended to "Uncle Tom's Cabin," on its appearance forty years ago. And that, like the present work, was as sailed from every quarter. For the ne cessity of an answer to it was apparent to the slavery apologists and defenders, and, therefore, caviling editors and writers by the thousand enlisted in the task of its annihilation, but in vain. It appealed to the ordeal of common sense, while the answers to it were mere special pleading...
