The best essays on political economy which have been written for many a lay are the luminous reports of the arin hearings furnished by our Wash ington bureau. These reports are un pretentious, and do not attempt to analyze causes and effects in an acade mic way; but they contain a faithful reproduction of th statements of fact made by business men respecting tha course of prices and the present indus trial condition of the country. The witnesses are not theorists bent either upon justifying- or controverting1 cam paign platforms and arguments. They are plain business men who know what are the facts respecting the industries with which they are identified. With one consent they have borne testimony to the general paralysis 'of business caused by uncertainty respecting the tariff policy of the country.

Then camo Ihs answer: "I am Truth." "I would see your face," she cried. "Kay, innocent one, my face is not fair to look upra. but am Truth." The cold wind was blowing and cry ing, and she closed the door. The Truth ehe Bought was pure and beautiful, not loathsome, and with the conviction of youth she was satisfied with herself foi having refused this grewsome thing ad mittance. From that day, however, strange visitors knocked at her door, and each c...
