If he Keeps on another ten years ho will be liable, for a final performance, to take in the earth. DEMOCRACY AND ARISTOCRACY. There are days when all Americans ought to re-read the history of Thomas Jefferson. One reason is there is a special effort being made in certain quarters to cause him to be apotheosized, made a god, in the estimation of mankind. In his speech before the "New England Democratic League," on the 24th inst., Mr. Bryan referred to llr. Jefferson as one '"whose profound philosophy pounded all the depths of human nature and mea Biired the height and breadth of human govern ment." Such an apostrophe ought to cause thoughtful people to go back and read the words of Jefferson, to study his character and his of ficial acts, to see if indeed "gods walked with men" in Jefferson's time. No one doubts t...

A collection of rare books was offered. In cataloguing the lot the man who had the collection in charge ran across a seedy and insig nificant little volume He examined it carelessly. His carelessness vanished. His eyes grew round. His mouth opened. Here was a little book which he recognized as phenomenally rare. Moreovor, it was an auto graph copy which had belonged to a famous old author. The book-lover gazed, hesitated, and was lost. Bibliophiles are only human. He had stumbled upon the volume quite by chance. Probably no one else would recognize its value, unless attention were to it. Ho laid the little book with its fellows but he didn't catalogue that. No genuine bibliophile with a limited income could have beon noble enough to put ...
