The Democratic pariy is doing lis
best to relieve the country of the

is still suffering. It has repealed
the iniquitous Force bill and the

it is only delayed in lightning tho

A I'HOMinent English physician
suggests that a good way to cure
the anarchists of their murderous
rage would be to declare them all
insane, and treat them like madmen.
He wisely points out the fact that
executing them simply enables
them to pose as martyrs before
their fellows, and influences others
to emulate their honors: while if
thev were treated like people of die
ordered intellect, declared insane,
and confined in a madhouse, it
would be a serious discouragement
for their imitators. He thinks that
there is good ground for such pro-
ceedings, saying that anaroby is
nothing more or less but a hornK
cidal mania, and that all persons
who advocate its principles should
be promptly confined where they
could do no harm. It would be a
good thing for this country to have
a writ de lunatico inquirendo issued
for Most, and all his tribe.
The Texas Farm and lianch con-
tends that, barring accidents, catas
trophea and overflows, a farmer's
success or failure depends upon the
amount of work he does with his
brains. Hands and arms, and like-
wise legs, are useful, but only as
tools for the brain to work with.
Turn a lot of hired hands on a farm
to do as they please, with no inter-
ference or control, except to pay
them their wages at the end of the
month, and the result would be the
same is turning loose any other
bodily strength without brain work
to direct it—it would be a failure.
No farmer ever prospered unless he
made good use of his head, and the
degree of his success will always be
found to have been in proportion to
the amount of head work invested
in bis business. The brain is a
great labor saving and labor guid-
ing contrivance, and if it is not
mad for these purposes, it will de-
velop mischief. It makes a man, a
devil, or so idiot.
THE FLAC OF OUR COUNTRY.
License is not liberty !
The fearful scenes enacted in
Chicago, Sacramento and other
placoa during the past ten days
have awakened tho whole American
peoplo to a realizing souse of the
danger that impends.
It is as the sound of a tiro boll at
In the very presence of tho muni-
cipal police, the State constabulary
and the encamped regulars of the
United States army, millions of
property were destroyed by the
torch of the incendiary and vast
quantities of stores were looted.
The Law stood powerless. It was,
indeed, the Commune, with all its
terrors, over again. No hand has
yet been raised potential enough to
stay the sacrifice. Commerce is
paralyzed. Crops lie rotting in the
fields. Men have grown to dread
the news of the next hour. The
spectre of social war glowers in the
firmament. The government cries
poace, but there is no peace. What
then is there to bo done! Ameri-
can institutions are rocking upon
their foundations. The smaller is-
sue is lost in the larger. It is a
question now of saving tho Repub-
lic. If the result of the present
contlict be triumph for thoso who
have sought to gain their ends by
appeal to force rather than to law,
then will the llag of our country be
no longer the emblem of the rule of
law. freedom and justice. It will
wave over a land in which courts
and legislatures have ceased to be.
But will it wave at all '' May thero
not float in its place the rod flag of
the anarchists, while another Itoign
of Terror is established, another
Dantou wields tho sceptre and Ven-
geance sits in the chair of Justice?
Instead of the splendid progress
tho Republic has made since the
day when, at Yorktown, Great
Britain conceded that the peoplo of
the colonies should govern them-
selves, and since tho constitution
was framed as the sufficient method
of securing liberty without license—
thero will ensue a succession of dic-
tators, as revolution shall troad
upon the heels of revolution, and
this the noblest of governmental
structures, with nil its prestigo and
glory, becomce a wreck meet only
for tho sorrowing historian.
What thon will become of the
wagoworkor and his poaceful fire>

cedent which Debs and his liouten
auts were seekiug to establish
Chicago' Beho!d whatagreat mat
ter a little fire kindlethl, A quarrel
between a manufacturer and his em
ployos is seized upon by a man of
master mind as a pretext to justify
an assault upon tho government it
self. He has himself declared that
ho meant civil war, and as the Haines
shot into the sky at Chicago and the
air was freighod with the shouts o:
madmen, bent on destruction for
distruction's sake, the spectacle
meant war and only war. If Full
man should now yield to every de
mand made by bis employes anc
order should be restored, it would
amount only to an armistice, pend
ing which Debs, with a confidence
growing out of success, may perfect
his organization and resume the war
not only at his pleasure, but also
with tho power to give it what des
tructive or bloody character ho may
choose. There lies the point of
greatest danger to our liberties. It
is idle to say that those who obey
his orders are American citizens who
always obey the law. Tho facts of
the last ten days stand significant
of a disposition to defy tho law anc
all its officers, aud to do so with ab
solute ruthlessness. Can any one
be so blind as not to see this dan
der-point' And is it not time-
high time—for the flag of our coun-
try to be advanced to the war-line

American cities, and as the waves of
insurrection shall rise one upon the
other, they may grow into one
gigantic tidal billow that shall over-
whelm thocapitol itself, aud, reced
ing, leave its fragments scattered
over a desolated land. Since the
above was written the strike has
been declared off by Debs.

THE MANUFACTURE OF GLASS.
Known m Karlj »• the Annalu of the Teu-
tonic Rare Extend.
Our forefathers were acquainted
with glass at tho date of their arrival
in Britain. Many examples of ex-
tremest beauty have been found in
Norway and Denmark, tho finest of
which, however, bear Greek or Ro-
man inscriptions, showing that they
were plundered—for it is unlikely
that t raders would carry such fragile
goods so far. It must be suspected
that all the very grand specimens
dug up in Scandinavia are foreign,
though many of them have no classic
character. Such are not found in
Britain, nor in north Germany, which
is further evidence. But besides these
we find several classes of cup, not
only distinct from classic model*,
but strangely identical among them
selves, whether unearthed in Eng
land, Germany, France or Scandina-
These represent the native style,
and the identity is very interesting.
Some of their ]>eculiarities survive
among us to this day. As our jug
is represented in very early MS. ex
actly the same in shape as that fa
miliar to ourselves, so wo trace vari
ous forms of the tumbler Iwth un-
known to Greeks and Romans.
This characteristic ornament, has
been discovered only once, we be-
lieve, in Scandinavia. But the re
verse form —with indentations to hold
the linger and thumb is common to
all. So Is tho funnel shaped cup,
which could not be made to stand up
right under any conditions. So is
the cup fluted below, bound with
lines about the brim.
Pleasing enough are many of the
forms some look quite modern, even
to tho style of decoration. They have
been found in tombs which showed
no trace of iron among the remains
discovered there. It is, in fact, cer-
tain that the manufacture of glass
was known as early as the memorials
of the Teutonic race extend.—Lon-
don Pottery Gazette.
Why They All Sighed.
"If there is one thing more than
another," said the pretty matron
with the first gray streaks showing
in her hair, "which recalls to you the
fact that you are getting old, it is to
chaperon a crowd of young folks. It
actually makes me blue every time I
do it 1 It isn't because they forget
their politeness, Ixxmise they are
matchless in the courtesy they show
me, but because I feel so terribly
'out' of it all.
' When these college boys lean over
my chair, I forget that I am not my
own daughter aud am flattered into
thinking they are really interested in
ine, but when I look up smilingly to
answer their remark I find them
wistfully eying Marie or else glow-
ering liecause some other fellow has
appropriated Grace, and I feel like
boxing their ears. When you begin
to feel that a younger set is shoving
you aside, and that no power on earth
can lend you anything to overcome
their attractions, then is the time to
adopt social reform clubs and chari-
ties and sewing societies and ffivo the
whirl of the world the go by."
And her audienco sighed. They
had all been there.- Detroit News.
Uenerted IHkK'I'K* I» Maine.
The dreariest tract of country
through which I traveled for a, long
time,'' said a traveling man, "is that
southeastern part of the state of
Maine which was tho locus of the
mining craze some years ago.
"There is no railroad in that sec-
tion, and in order to get to iny desti-
nation the town of Machias- I had
to drive move than tSO miles from the
nearest point, on tho railroad which
runs to Bar Ilarbor.
"1 passed through miles of country
which was characterized by deserted
shafts of copjM'i' and silver mines, the
ore taken from which did not begin
to reimburse the. unlucky speculators
for their outlay.
"Every now and then one sees tho
moldering remains of what was at
that time believed t>) be the nucleus
of a future village; the decaying
shells of hotels, bearing such charac-
teristic nanus as the Copperopolis
hotel,' etc. In the neighborhood of
these are to be seen the dilapidated
homes built by speculators for aj>op
illation which never materialized
habitations which were never oven
dwelt in for a day.
"The excavations made in some
places by the misguided miners are
extensive, and the lingo artificial
caverns thus created will remain for
ever, emphasizing in their uusightli-
ness a folly which infected the popu-
lation of the entire state.
"The one small return which na
ture gave for all thisfoolishexpendi
ture of time and money exists in tho
wells of pure water which were
'struck'in the course of the sinking
of shafts through the solid rock."—
New York Herald.
A Plgeoy With a Memory.
It seems really imi>ossible to extin-
guish the homing instinct in a good
pigeon. A story is told of a French
carrier pigeon which was captured
by the German soldiers during the
siege of Paris in 1870. The bird was
being carried in a balloon from Paris
to some point in the country whence
it wok expected to return to Paris
with a message. It was taken to
German headquarters and presented
to the commander, Prince Frederick
Charles, who sent it to his mother in
Germany. Here it was placed in a
splendid roomy aviary and carefully
fed and nourished; but, although it
was kept here, living in the lap of
royal luxury for four years, the
French pigeon did not forget its fa
At the end of that time the aviary
was left open one day. The pigeon
flew out, mounted high in the air,
flew about for a moment as if to find
the points of the compass and start
ed in a straight line for Paris. Ten
days afterward it beat its wings
against the entrance to its old loft in
the Boulevard do Clichy. There it
was recognized, and its case being
brought to public attention it was
honored as a patriot returned from
foreign captivity. It remained at the
Paris Jardiu d'Acclimation until it
died in 1878.—New York Journal.

The Birds' Christmas sheaf.
In Norway a distinctive and very
pretty feature of Christmas feasting
is the provision made for tho birds.
Great is the joy of the children when
carts, laden with grain in the sheaf,
come into every town, and each fam-
ily invests in a sheaf, which on
Christmas day is brought forth by
the father, fastened to a pole and
erected at some convenient corner of
the house that the birds may share
the good cheer. Not that the birds
are forgotten at other times. Minia
ture wooden houses are fastened to
the eaves or to trees in the gardens,
and therein is kept a store of grain
for tho solace of the birds all through
the winter, but this sheaf is quite an
extra treat.—Western Mail.
Love is never lost. If not recipro-
cated, it will flow back and soften
