"Of nil who survive to the nge of seventy one out. of every three is a pauper." Death at middle life is better than old age Yet even then, a pauper's grave is the lot of one out of five.

Innumerable ship visiting every harbor in the world, are dumb and speechless as expressions of national growth and prosperity, when tlie harbors from which they .iro sent and the country whose flng flies at their mastheads, are festering with destitution and despair. The loud boasting of the champions oC a policy under which such conditions exist can not long drown the voice of multitudes pleading for work. A SILLY EFFORT. A railway man got at the core of the matter last night when he said that the Pharos's statement that the Panhandle employes were forced to sign the. roll of the Sound Money club, was utterly silly. OC what use would the organization of clubs be to the Pennsylvania? As the Pharos says, the Australian system prevents 1 intimidation at the polls. What; possible good, then, could the cause of sound money gain, by forming clubs whose members.may vote quietly the ticket they wish to stamp, if the metfivere forced to join. It is a truth that np member of the big club was even urged to join the ranks. All of them demand good dollars. It is a fact that there are many Demo crats among railway men who are for sound money, who were only a short time ago for free silver. They hare studied the question on both sides. They <3o not Join the club simply because of the course their former friends and political comrades have taken, In trying to brand them as "white slaves to the wilt of n corporation." . Those who stand back because of the snarling of the Popocratlc editor, will not linger long on his account, but will take their places.In the column that is on tfoe road to victory and Washington, a firm stand on a sound money basis, and a chance to earn honest dollars. Hon. William • JicKinley, in his speech at Toledo, Ohio, Thursday, Feb. 12, 1801, used this -forcible argument: "There must be something for the American citizen more than cheap clothes. There must be some higher incentive than a cheap coat and a bare .subsistence. The farmer's products must bring him fair returns for his toil and Investments. The workingman's wages must be governed by his work and worth, and not by what he can Sarely live upon. He must have wages which bring hope, and heart, and ambition, which gives promise of a future brighter and better than the past, which shall promote his comfort and .^dependence, and which shall stlmu- ,atc him to a higher and better, a more ntelligent,citizenship. This was what Lincoln and Garfleld taught.- These were the principles with which they nsplred the people. The great eman- :lpator illustrated his aversion to jheap men when he made them free and gave them their own earnings and abor; and the beloved GarfieW showed his sympathy with God's poor when he •otcd to make them citizens." ...

The Democrats have loudly claimed that Republicans at Lincoln are going into the repudiation ranks in squads and pla- tpons and companies. The meeting last night at the school house in Lin- 'colu at which there were over 400, who filled and overflowed from the double structure, redeems Lincoln and the sound money champions in that section of tte county.

THE SPANISH BAYONET. Facts Aboot tbe Yucca Ire* of Sontbern California. The yuccas, or Spanish bayonets, as tbcv are most commonl called, are cmoug the mostcharacteristic plants of desert and semi-desert zones of California, being 1 found in nearly all the hot, dry parts of the state where little rain falls. Strange as it may seem, these tough, wiry-leaved plants be- !on(j to the same' order in botany us do our beautiful hyacinths, lily of the valley, tulips, and gorgeously colored Mariposa. lilies or butterfly flowerjs, so characteristically represented in all parts of the state. And yet these yuccas are tough nnd hard in texture with sharp pointed K-aves. often terminating in a tough thread, which bangs loosely from the end. Others grow to the size of large, but not graceful trees, often reaching fully 30 feet above tbe , ground, as is the case with the tree yucca of the Mojaye desert, groves of which maybe seen at anytime near the railroad between ^fojave aird Los Anfreles. These, says the San Francisco Chronicle, are about the only trees of any size found on the deserts of California until one gets hig-h enough on the barren Y.ingcs to find the pinon pine, which grows here and thereon the mountains, usually far below the rest of the pine trees. The flowers of the yuccas usual- lv RTOW in immense bunches, often as much as four or five feet long, sometimes being- borne straight at th» apes of a long, leafless stem, as in the tre» vnocas. bending downward with the weight of the great bunch-of flowers, which usually open in rhc evening 1 .

It was sent by the party of scientists under Prof. Tod<l. stata geologist, who have been at work in the Bad Lands for some weeks and last week found a bill of tufa aad volcanic ash which at intervals qunkc« ;ind shakes.

That most city children thoroughly appreciate an outing ia the country i* well attested by the popularity of fresh- air parties and the efforts made by children to be numbered among those taken on the trips. But there are always exceptions, says the'Philadelphla Beoord. One exception was a member of afresh- air party which had been sent out into ihe country. He sat by himself, quiet, unmoved by all the glories of tbe place —disconsolate, discontented, miserable. N Elliston Perot, one. of Germantavrn'* citizens, who was with 'those in charge, determined that the street ;irabs should have a good time. He no- liced the little fellow and asked him why he didn't go with the rest of'them and have a good time. "Good time nuthinV blurted out the boy. Then brightening up as if-Mr. Perot's kindness merited at least the graciousness of an explanation, he said: "Yon oug-hter live down in our alley. Why, ther patrol wagon sometimes comes five times a day." There was a volume in that speech. That day could no more enjoy a day a way from the narrow courts and brick walls than we could the Garden of Eden if Father Adam's heirs wtreputinpossession again. But he was an exception. Life in the country is unalloyed delight to most city children. Awarded Highest Honors—World's Fair. •DR; CREAM BAKING POtfDW MOST PERFECT MADE. p.we Grape Cream of T»rtw Powder.
