The Republican Platform. Thfl platform adopted by the republican national convention at Philadelphia is framed, on the assumption that Providence and Mr. McKinley have been closely associated In the ruling of all mundane things in Amer ica for the past three years, with Providence as the junior partner. The beneficence of the rains which have come to the just and the unjust, the employment and demand created by the war with Spain, to v:hich Mr. McKinley was opposed, and the impulse given in many directions by the South African war are all be nevolently assimilated as re sults of republican wisdom and statesmanship. No thought of national ag grandizement tarnished the high purpose" of this govern ment when it entered upon the war with Spain, 'may be true enough, but it was not long un til the trusts and syndicates introduced the thought as to the Philippines. The platform gloats over the fact that there was a panic dur ing Mr. Cleveland's administra tion, presuming that the people ha...

Reflections of a Bachelor. Originality is a good thing for people who don't have it. The men that have the most horse sense do the most kick ing. Love would be all right as a lottery it the dice weren't load ed. If a woman never threw her self at a man's head, she would probably never strike -him fa vorably. The average man's reputation with other women depends less on 1ms character than it does on his wife's dresses. Every woman lias an idea that she "holds her age well." Life's thorns were created to keep people from acting hog gish with the roses.J Love is a dream. Whether it is a nightmare or not depends a lot on what you had for din ner. There was never but one real ly brave man. He told a wom an he didn't think her baby was unusually bright for its age. Religion may say what it will; but there comes a time to every human soul when it knows that there can be no heaven for dt where some one other human :soul is not. Whenever a baby cries in pub lic all the men in sight look anad...

s Pointed Paragraphs. A pencil is sometimes driven when lead. Industry is born in a man, but laziness is acquired. People who are too fresh are always getting into a pickle. The sentences of a grammati cal judge are not always cor rect. A man seldom walks erect when straitened by circumstan ces. The pessimist is a man who has lost heart and has a diseas ed liver. Although a woman's age is all ber own she doesn't always own it. When a girl is wrapped up in herself she is able to go by the males. We all want to go to heaven but there is no demand for rapid transit. A St. Louis heiress is so tender-hearted that she can't be in duced to strike a match. Don't imagiue because you are homely that you are above the average in intelligence. The man who says you are al ways wrong may be mistaken, cut the man who savs vou are always right is a liar. Many a poor young man is compelled to work for a living simply because his father-in-law failed to amass a fortune. Chi cago Daily News. Mnnv thou...

"What do I want of chest nuts?" "Please, sir, do buy 'em." pleaded the little one, reassur ed by the rough kindness of his tone.
