by overtaxing the people and if the policy of bond buying con tinues the tax money of the people will, year after year, go into the coffers of the bond brokers and money speculators of New Orleans and other money centers of the world, who contribute a mere mite in support of this government com pared with the poor tax payer of the land. Yet, if the interest tax surplus is to be used for the retire ment of unmatured bonds, there is still left the general fund sur plus that Gov. Foster can utilize in behalf of our people. Would to God he had the nerve and courage of a McEnery, the responsibility would be met, the money furnish Sed, the suffering people relieved.  There is not a member of the Leg islature that would not commend the governor for this act of human i-ty, and would endorse him by :their vote.

Gleanings frorr) 1 The Social World. Miss SADIE BEJACK, EDITOR. Arguing With Womnen. ] -There are, perhaps, not many diversions more agreeable than a conversation upon areally interesting topic, with a really clever, superior woman; the society of such a woman affordc the most enjoyable relaxation from study or other severe work, that is possible to experience. It is not at all essential that her talk be bril liant, not even necessary that it be witty; it is quite enough that it be really wo manly, that whether grave or gay, or in whatever line it be, it truly reflects the right relations of woman to man in a well ordered society. It is just as great a fault for a woman's talk to be mannish. If, for instance, a discussion is to be maintained on a really serious or interesting topic between a well read man and a cultivated woman, it is essential that it be not permitted to de 'generate into disputation. Truly wo manly talk is, like all the influences of refined women, suggestive, sti...

THE CURSE OF BRINIK REV. DR. TALMAGE CALLS A HALT ON DISSIPATION. An Eloquent and Picturesque Sermon on the Topic "The Song of the Drunkard." The Power and the Evils of Intemper amee In the Use of Liquor. WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-This discourse pf Dr. Talinago is from a most unusual standpoint, an arousing call to reforma tion from dissipated habits, and must do wide good. The text was Psalms lxix, 12, "I was the song of the drunkards." Who said that? Was it David or was it Ohristi It was both. These Messianic Psalms are like a telescope. Pull the in strument to a certain range, and it shows you an object near by. Pull it to another range, and it will show you objects far away. David and Christ were both, each In his own time, the song of the drunk Sids. Holiness of doctrine and life always did excite wicked nmerrimaent. Although David had fully reformed and written a Ipsalmody in whioh all subsequent ages ?bave sobbed out their penitence, his ene :oes preferred to fetch up his old car...
