A part of tba oruutry want Into tba
lumber bnslness, and there was an
overproduo'lon. Another part of th*
oouutry want Into th* Iron business,
and there was an overproduction.
Overproduction has bean the fad,
not only of this country bat of a good
part of the world. Oar merchants
have too many goods on their shelves,
our farmers have too many bushels of
corn In the orlbs, onr manufacturers
h.vetoo many wares In the fsotorlee,
our railroads have too many mlltB of
traok, too many oars, too many en
glnas, too many min at work and too
many man who are not at work.
The R’publloan party went Into tbe
business of making a brand of oonfi
denoe that would take the plaoe of
money, and there was overproduction.
Now we have the ooufliecot, bat, pre-
sumably bio ms* there Is bo muoh of
It, It seems to have lost Us value. Even
that was overproduced.
We ought to be thankful to the peo-
ple of any stale who will devise any
new Industry. We owe our thanks to
the people of Kansas for having gone
Into the business of raising bell. It te
to be presumed that so muoh of their
time as was devoted to that Industry
was taken away from their old oooupa-
tlon, that of ratelng corn. Had it not
been for this diversion, there wonld be
even more oorn, and then the prloe of
onr etaple would have gone to ten
cents a bushel. Why ehoald the Kan-
sas man give bis attention to oorn?
The rest of as oan, nnasslsted, over
produoa that artlole.
Don’t frown npon a people because
they are, In your opinion, ratelng hell.
Some years ago a smart congressman
advised the people of the south to raise
less hell and mora hogs. The rcmtrk
was reoelved with great applaose by
th# patrlotlo gallery. The south took
the hint end raised hogs, and now
there Is an overproduction. We who
were In th* business of raising hogs
from time Immemorial, would be muoh
better off If the south had devoted more
time to the old Industry.
Aud th* great flashlights la the do-
main of Intelligence tell us there le
an overproduction of money. It will
be remembered that some of our people
did, for a time last summer, propose
to go Into th* business of pioduotng
money. And then the lights of the
Rspnblloan party, aided aud abetted
by some bolting Demoora*,#, Informed
us that matter had been attended to.
There was already an overproduction
of money; It was to ba had In London
at th* entail part of 1 per oent a year.
S • here we are. We have overpro-
duction all around. Too many pro-
ducts, too muoh money. “Nitlilog bnt
food to ea», nothing bat olothes to
wear, nothing bat money to spend.
We are blase, ennaled, we have worn

Bow the Caliph Provided For the fill
of th* Pnblle Executioner.
“Yes, alre,” responded th# grand vizier,
with a most humble salaam.
"1 sentenced a number of malefactors
to death yesterday, did I not?’’
“Allah’s most glorious representative
on earth was pleased to order the ex term!
nation of two and twenty Christian dogs—
yes, sire,” murmurs Giafar, with another
waist roovoment salaam.
"And have my ordors and the Christian
dogs been executed?” queried the caliph.
“Alas, sire, the public exeoutloner lies
at tho point of death.”
“Now, by the beard of the prophet,"
testily observed the oallph, “the public
exeoutloner is developing symptoms of
pantatalstn. It Is the publlo executioner’s
duty to stand at the point of death, not to
lie. Bid him bring his sclmiter and re-
port for duty forthwith In the oourtyard.”
“Alas, sire, Mohammed’s most worthy
understudy does not grasp his servant’s
meaning. Tbe publlo exeoutloner groans
in weariness of spirit and lies ill unto
death. Already at the office of Tho Mus-
sulman’s Delight his obituary stands pre-
pared upon the galloys.”
“Giafar, did our serene mightiness un-
derstand you to say two and twenty Chris-
tian dogs await death?’’
“Two and twenty, oommander of the
“Let them be assembled in the oourt-
yard at once, and—stay, Giafarl”
"Bid the court barbers assemble and
shave the heads of the condemned.”
“The ohild of the prophet spoats, and
his servants obey.”
“This being done, Giafar, you will sep-
arate this band of Christian dogs into two
sections, consisting of 11 men In each.
Give them a copy of the Rugby rules, with
the latest approvod American college hom-
icidal amendments, and bid them play
football to a finish.”
“Justice and equity lie ever in the heart
of Mohammed’s favorite son,” said Giafar,
with a shudder.
“ See that the gates are securely locked,
Giafar, and leave these dogs to their fate.
After the muezzin has called the faithful
to evonlng prayer bid the mutes remove
the dead and cast them over tho outer wall.
To those who survive, If any there be, you
will cause to bo read a technical story of
tho game written by one of the ladies of
the harem. Death will speedily ensue.”
His elevated calmness has spoken, and
his will Is a law unto his servants, of
whom Giafar Is the least. Allah be prais-
ed 1” said the grand vizier, moving from
the oallph’s presence with another series
of gracoful salaams.
“Publlo exocutioners may come and
go,” soliloquized the caliph, “but a good
govornment club will never bo needed In
Bagdad while my thinking apparatus
ollngs to Its trolley. Allah is great, and
Mohammed Is his prophot, but I cannot
refrain from remarking Incidentally that
Haroun-al-Raschid, caliph of Bagdad, is
considerable of a peach himself.”—New
“Miss Brown, I am glad to soe you
think you can load the style in dress.”
“That must be sarcasm, Miss Jones.
You have your own ambitions in that di-
rection. What Is the trouble?”
“Nothing at all, I’m sure. Of oourso If
you want to wear a bustle there’s no law
to stop you.”
“I’m not wearing a hustle, and It’s
mean of you to soy so.”
“Well, here I am sitting right bohind
yon, and you know I’m going to wear the
ounnlngest little russet shoes on com-
mencement day. And yet you've got your
skirts so sproad over them that nobody ean
see my feet.”
"Oh, I beg your pardon”--rearrange-
ment of skirts—“but don’t be afraid
your feet won’t be seen, dear. They’re
not invlslblo.”—Philadelphia Telegraph.
There had been a big wedding in high
