The Washington Post considers
the establishment of state saloons by
the commonwealth of South Caro-
lina as a dangerous, as well as a
novel scheme. It is a step in the
direction of paternalism, and should
it sucoeed and be declared constitu-
tional every business interest in the
state would at once become legiti>
mate prey for legislators who cannot
find enough of a publio nature to
engage their mighty interests.
ItAIUtOAD RATCS OURIHO TNI FAIR.
There appears, so far, no very
evident intention on the part of rail
roads to make any striking con-
cessions in the way of passenger
rates to and from Chicago daring
the Fair. Concessions will undoubt-
edly be made, but hardly to the ex-
tent that has been anticipated. Com-
menting upon whioh the American
Machinist says: It is to be expected
that railroad companies will operate
their roads in the way to make the
most of their opportunities; in other
words, they will not reduce their
rates unless by so doing they can
make more money. It would be
satisfactory in a good many ways if
the fare could be very materially
reduoed through the summer and
early fall. It would enable a great
many people of moderate means to
visit the great Exposition who can-
not afford to pay full, or nearly full
rates. But the same can be said of
the oost of living at Chicago. The
increase in this will keep many away.
There is considerable abuse of the
great trunk lines beoause of their
evident intention to make the
moet money possible daring Fair
time. But after all such abuse is no
more than the abusing of human
nature in general. Railroad cor-
porations are not charitable institu-
tions. They exist for the purpose
at making money.
ie dull they may, like
tio®v or Hke individuals, lee»no»«r,
or fail to make any; when business
is good, they very naturally try to
reverse this. Railroad corporations
should be judged no differently for
doing this than other corporations
or than individuals.
If the railroads centering in Chi-
cago find their capacities overtaxed,
as it is evidently expected they will,
there will be no startling reduction
in the price of tickets. If on the
other hand, their facilities for trans-
porting passengers is largely in ex
cess of the demand, rates will be
lowered, not from charitable or
patriotic motives, but for the pur-
pose of making money. What else
can be expected? It will be a case
of demand and supply, just as hotel
charges, and in fact, everything
connected with the whole matter of
paying a visit to the Fair will be.
We can only hope that things will
so shape themselves that all who
wish can see something of the great
Ths Banner has always been an
ardent advocate of 4the employment
of convicts in the construction of pub-
lic roads, henoe it is pleased to see
that the State of New York is a<
iously considering the advisability
of adopting this method of provid
ing employment for its oonvicts.
There are many things in its favor.
It will aid in securing good roads,
which are oertainly very much need-
ed in this country. Such employ"
ment of prison labor will not inter-
fere with free labor, beoause it will,
fn the main, be employed on work
that would not otherwise be done.
Another consideration, and probably
not the least, is the employment will
be a healthy one, and that m a great
aid in the reformation of crim-
Codbt decisions bearing upon the
relations existing between employ-
ers and employed follow eaoh other
thick and fast in theee days, and it
looks as if no one could tell where
theywill end, says the American
Machinist. This appeal to the
courts in sueh matters is much to be
preferred to more violent methods,
and a line of decisions will eventual-
ly define the respective rights and
limitation! of both sides, after which
the legislative power can be appeal-
ed to, and probably with suseeee, to
correct remaining abui

Wobn out by incessant toil, borne
down by the burden of the day and
their foreheads begrimmed by the
dust of the fray, the Texas delega-
tion has given it up and is pulling
for home as fast as Pullman sleep-
ers can carry its members, says the
Washington Post. It may be said
in justice to the Texas statesmen
that they know just as muoh about
the distribution of offices as they
did a month ago. That is to say,
they have not forgotten anything,
which is further to say that they
have not learned anything. Not one
of them is able to declare whether
in the future distribution of offices
Mr. Cleveland will recognize the
Hogg faction or the Clark faotion,
or any faotion at all. They oonsole
themselves with the reflection that
they have made the statutory num-
ber of visits to the White house, and
that tbe sum total of the good they
have done is fully up to the average.
An enterprising exchange pro-
pounds the following interrogatory:
"Will a merchant who is wise,
ever cease to advertise? Yes—
when the trees grow upside down;
when the beggar wears a crown;
when the ice forms upon the sun ;
when our 'Johnny gets his gun';
when gold dollars get too oheap:
when the women secrets keep;
when the girls go back on gum;
when the small boy hates a drum;
when no politician schemes; when
minoe pie makes pleasant dreams;
when it's fun to break n tooth;
when all lawyers tells the truth;
when cold water makes you drunk;
when the drummer has no brass;
when all theee tilings oome to pass—
ihen the merohsnt who is wise may
neglect to advertise."

An ear of corn twenty-seyen inches
long, twelve inches in circumference
having twenty-four rows of 157
grains each, making a total of 3768
grains on the cob, is exhibited at
Shenandoah, Kan., as a specimen of
that region's agricultural capabili-
ties. It was raised last season, and
eleven such ears would make
bushel of corn.
The Population of the Moon.
There is plenty of authority for be-
lieving that there is a man in the moon;
in fact, there is authority tor believing
that there are women and other mi™*]*
there. Dante declares that Cain was
banished to the moon, and that he can
be seen there at any time. Chauoer de-
clares that the man in the moon was
guilty of larceny, and that he carries a
thornbnsh. Shakespeare loads him with
thorns and give* him a dog. Accord-
ing to the general version, he was ban-
ished there for gathering Bticks on Sun-
day, and the Germans have amplified
this theory by giving him a woman who
had been caught churning butter on
Sunday.—New York Telegram.
Disgusted With Chicken Raising.
A Frenchman living in this city has
been an enthusiastic poultryman, but
this season finds him disgusted with the
business. Meeting a friend the other day,
he said: "You know dat Schoohin pullet

rooster; she crow like every ting dis

Ointments from Whales.
Spermaceti, whioh is often used in-
ternally in catarrh and other affections,
as well as in the form of ointments for
wounds and excoriations of the skin, is
obtained from the head of a monster
of the whale kind which abounds in the
south seas, while the highly esteemed
ambergris is only a condition of disease
in the same animal.—London Tit-Bits.
An Italian Woman's Earrings.
Some persons profess to be able to
guess approximately from what part of
Italy a woman oomes by the length of
her earrings. Italian earrings lengthen
as one goes southward, and in the ex-
treme south of Italy the earrings of the
women reach almost to the ahouldera.--
