The Indianapolis Journal speaking of the Attorney General's grab of about $23,000 annually gives credit to Judge Baldwin for originating the scheme, but is unable to stale what the Judge made out of It. The Judge is credited with saying that he made |50,000 clear over and above expenses in the two years, and this U practically the fact, The Journal says: For many years Indiana had the services of some of her ablest lawyers lor attorney general for salaries ranging from $1,000 to $2500, and less than $1,000 for deputy, clerk and office expenses. In these days there were no tees, and the ablest lawyers sought the office because to hold it gave them distinction in the profession. Joseph E McDonald served Indiana when the salary was less than $2,000. Since the war one attorney general after another has secured legislation which has enabled them to receive a constantly Increasing amount of fees. Tho first attorney general whose genius discovered the extent of the wealth which could he obtalnec in working the fee veins was the Hon. Daniel Pratt Baldwin, who was elected as a Republican in 1880. His marvelous achievements in that direction are a fruitful theme of comment when recalled to lawyers of that period. The Journal has made several attempts to aicer. tain the value of the enterprise and thrift of Mr. Baldwin to bimielf during that period, for at that date the attorney-general was not required to make any showing of the extent of his fees for publication in the Auditor's report. All the efforts of the Journal bo get the figures representing the fees pocketed by the Attorney-general of that and previous periods have proved unavailing, but lawyers estimate the receipts of Mr. Baldwin well up in dollars measured by five figures. Some time since Mr. Baldwin's conscience caused him to become a mug- wump of the Democratic brand, so that a true revelation of what he did as a wicked Republican would make interesting reading. THE Journal is very foolish to make any defense of its standing as an "official organ." It was perhaps designated as such without solicitation and by every rule of fairness is entitled to it. Its friends in the council did the right thing in making it the official organ. There should be gratitude in politics as well as in anything else and the Republican members of the council were right In thus manifesting their appreciation of its services in their behalf. The council will be justified, too, in paying the Journal fair prices for its work,' because * * it has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Cass county. H there is any value in newspaper advertising the newspaper having the largest circulation is of course the most valuable.—Pharos. The Journal it not making any defense; simply showing the secret of the attacks made. It IB proper to explain this to the public. The law verywliely provides fora corporation paper and it fixes the charges, which are not unreasonable. The publla is entitled to know this and the oouncilmen are entitled to have the puUlo know the facts. These have been stated and that there Is no need of further discussion. ENGLISH firms are sending circulars to this country offering to sell their goods, •if the Wilson Ml becomes o law. It is quite probable that they will sell extensively if the bill passes and that the American workingman who made the same class of goods will starve, or go into some other already over, crowded field of labor. This is what free trade means to a country paying good wages. The following sent to a Connecticut house by the great English brass founders, Samuel Heath & Sons of Birmingham, is a sample of the clrou- lais referred to: To tne Company: We have your name given us as being makers of fenders, and as you are no doubt aware we are the largest manufacturers of all kinds of fittings for these articles in the world, we wish to lay that, If the Wilsoa bill passes in your country, we shall be very glad to call upon you sometime next September with all kinds of vases, mounts, spindles, rod ends, caps, etc., supports and tubing. ... We should be very pleased to hear from you, statin/r if you would then be in a portion to favor ui with an order if the goods meet with your approval.

I wonder when the Ideal pooketbook will be madeP And when I say pook- etbook, I mean a combination of purse and pocket, calculated to hold every, thlnir from postage stamps to visiting cards, from clippings to recipes lor making plum oake. I never have any trouble about my pockets, though I believe some women do complain of them, though my experience in that respect has been smooth. I have never had e frock without a reachable pocket; and from Redfern to Worth, clear down to the woman who comes in to sew by the day, I find that if you want a pocket you can get it, and that If you don't have it, it la becauee you haven't been positive enough about demanding it. The very smart dress, makers always put pockets in for you. But what I want, as I said before, is a useful poeketbook. At present, If you yearn to keep your money all right, you have got to have a purse for coin and a book for notes, and in that lame book you have got to let your ollp. pings get mixed up with your pottage stamps and your recipes, .usually written with soft lead penoili, iraear up your cards. STREET CAB TRIALS. Of course I know the swell thing is not to need any money; to have your own trap, so that you don't have to go In street cars, to have bllli at all the shops, and never to be thrown with anybody to whom you would like to give a tip. But that isn't the way with me, and I don't believe It is with you. I get in the street car, at the risk of my life; hand the man a quarter get in ohange ten pennies and two five cent pieces. I put these where they are supposed to belong in the pocket of the purse and change oars. Then in an effort to pay the next conductor, the catch flies open when it shouldn't, spills the pennies on the floor, and as the conductor doesn't consider it hla business to help pick them up, I have to lose my money or behave like an acrobat. And all this la because some great genius hain't brought his brain power to hear upon the inventing of the right kind of purse. Man, who can carry their money around in their trousers pockets, wonder that women lose their money, lose their purses and lose their tempers, hut if they ever started;., V> keep everything that they counted of any value in one case, they would begin to comprehend what it all meant. OUR DISPOSITIONS. People, generally, talk about losing one'8 temper, ae if it were a Idreadful thing to do, but it isn't so bad onoein a while. I would rather any time have a woman around me whose temper was like a thunderstorm, coming occasionally and clearing the atmosphere, than one who would sit and sulk and never explain what was the matter with her. That sort of thing is calculated to murder. A woman who liti witk her lips set tight for two or three days, only speaks when she ii obliged to, and never explains who or what has hurt her, can make •* whole household unhappy, and really is about the only creature I knew who deserves a first-class paddling administered with an elastic slipper. I don't believe in whipping—especially In.whipping girl children; but when a woman Is as childish as this, and makes herself aa all-around disagreeable, she deserves such treatment as would be given to a had child, who was not a self-respecting one.. Probably you and I don't think we have got such bad tempers, but I imagine that once in a while we can be pretty disagreeable, hut lor goodness sake let us pray to have the kind that explains the reason why and is so»n over. I will tell you what is worse than a woman with the worst temper in the world, and that is a man with a nagging temper. The sort of a man who wakens up In the morning feeling that HIS LIVER IS OUT OF ORDER, and who by the time he reaches the breakfast table considers himself the most aggrieved person in the world. HU wife may call his attention to the lact that some man they know has juot gotten married; and he will answer. ' 'If the poor devil had asked my advice he never would have done It." Damper No. 1. Then his oldest hoy will say, "Father, you promised to show me about that sum before I went to school," and this beautiful creature will respond, • -What do you suppose I work all day and nearly kill myself to make money to send you to school for, if I nave got to teach you?" Damper No. 2. Then he will hear the two little girls laugh. Ing about the way a kitten is running after a ball, and he will get up and put the kitten out of the room, throw the ball out of the 'Inflow,.' and fit down again. Toe two little girls Till look frightened to death, as they aw, and one of them will probably begin to cry. Damper No. 3. By this time MY GENTLEMAN'S CHARMISG TEMPER has BO affected the .atmosphere that nobody says anything, and the visitor beneath bis roof makes up her mind to leave as soon as possible. And that man will go down town and In some way or other get rid of all this accumulated bile and devilish ness, and he will return home expecting to find everybody as agree- ible as possible. He will wonder why the children don't come up to him; he will wonder why the visitor left; ho will wonder why his wife isn't as chatty as usual, and it will never dawn on his brain that It is his o* n abomln- able, nagging temper that has gotten everybody in the state of mind that be finds them. This Is the sori of a man that in the very beginning of the day ought to have had physical' suasion administered to him by a first class pri/e fighter. If you or I have done anything to each other, we had bettor explain it, and not carry it around In our hearts for weeks and weeks, making a mountain out of a molehill and ourselves wretchedly unhappy. But when there is really nothing except what a dose of sulphur and molasses might cure, it does Beem most horrible that we should go around making the rest of the world uncomfortable because we are not quite well physically. It does seem as if, during these beautiful spring days, people ought to be happy. We ought to be wise enough to learn that If one hasn't any absolute happiness of one's own, that somebody else ban it, and for that reason life is w«rth living. For really, when you come to think of it, happiness is very like many good things—It Is reflective, and you get in a way your share of somebody else's, It may come only in some agreeable words, but if you have ever had disagreeable ones eald to you, you will realize what it means to listen to those that are amiable, bright and cheery. Your happiness may only consist in seeing somebody's happy face, but that's worth while, because a happy lace is like a flower. THE POOR PEOPLE'S PARADISE. Speaking of flowers, makes one think of the beauty of the parks just now, and then I give a great sigh of contentment because of those living, little flowers, the children of the poor, who o«n be out there all day long and enjoy themselves. They are there by the thousands. The little mother of eleven is lugging the baby of six months; while the children of four and six are hanging onto her skirts, and all of them are trotting along eager to reach the spot where they can lie down upon the grass and live. The miserable basket or bundle holds the luncheon, and that poor luncheon is enjoyed juit as much as if It were DelmonicoVbest, The other day I saw two little mothers with their families gazing at once with rapture and envy at (he goat wagons. They hadn't gotten as far as the park. They were In Madison Square. To them it seemed like fairyland. But the natty little wagon, the goat with his bright harness, and the boy in his uniform who led the gallant steed, appeared above all things the most marvelous. Just think, my friends, for five cent* it was possible to give these children fifteen minutes of pleasure, I saw those two wagon loads start off, and waited, guarding the luncheons until they came back. Around the park they went, the goats being whipped, the younger children screaming with delight, and the little mothers being quiet, like bigger mothers, for they were having such a good time. When they all came back, they looked proud enough to belong to the Senatorial party In power. But, to my intense astonishment, just as I left, I saw one little mother start to deliberately whip the second child. I went back to see what It was, and this was her explanation: "Well, ma'am, Angelina has always been uppish, and she's likely after this to be puttln' on^irs, and I thought as bow in the very be. glnnln' I'd make her understand that because just now she was Hvint like the rich and the haughty, there was other things in life." I begged Angelina off, but onoe out of sight, I laughed until I cried. The little mother was so human! And Angelina, who was Hijfhert of aU in er^Uteit ^. & Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE inclined to be "uppish" was so feminine! And I looked away aheid, and I wondered what would be Angelina's future. She might be In the White House, or in the chorus of a ballet; ahe mlKht be In a store, or she might bo the wife of a ward politician. Ori'ISHNESS IN YOUNGSTERS. Uppishness Isn't a bad thing In girl children. It tends to make them self- respecting and ambitious, and when you come from the otber side and are seven years old, and your idea of the rich and haughty IB a five minutes' drivo in a goat wagon, something Is necessary to make you self-respecting. The sweetest thing among these poor little people Is their love and pride In the baby. His smartness, his size and how good he 1§, or, sometimes, how excessively bad he is, are all dilated upon with that same pride that the mother would have, and the baby is i watched and tended to, as if they I were afraid, these poor little mothers I from the other side, that somebody wanted to steal their little charges. Give them some pleasure if it comes in your way, won't youP And don't wait to make it come in your way. Go out of your way to find it. Such a tiny bli of money will give so much joy. You would haidly believe it possible, but for the dime for which you don't care, there can be delights obtained that are remembered and talked about for days afterwards. It always seems to me that there is nothing in life that is so satisfactory as giving a pleasure to a little child. You get your thanks at once; they come in the bright eyes and the happy face, even If they are not In spoken words. And, now, THE SUMMER DAYS ABE COMINO. Do you know what they mean on the other sldeP They mean a longing for a breath of fresh air. for a cool place, and a glass of clear water. They mean suffering for these little people, such as you can't dream of. The philosopher stands off and says, • •Let them die; It will end that much poverty, and possibly crime." And In his heart the philosopher is a murderer. Give them their chance to live. Give them their chance for a little happiness. They may not be beautiful, oftentimes they are not Interesting, these children of the other side; but If your boy or girl slept In a room with seven other people, never knew what a bath was day in and day out, lived on the poorest and worst cooked food, literally TUMBLED ALONG THROUGH LIFE do you think we would be Interesting? Do some Uttlethlig. Why, you know, if everybody would do just a llttlb the result would be marvelous. Give one child a day's pleasure, and if you yourself cannot for some reason go to the other side, then put a bit of money in the hands of those wbo do, and give this money for the little children that they may one day go on, the water, that they may one day go to the country, that they may once in a while have happy days like other children. These children of the other side. And yet they are God's children. And be very sure that a> you do It unto the least of them It will be done unto you. Do it then because it Is kind and right Do it for the sske of jour own little children, and if you want to de it for somebody who has seen how they suffer, who knows how happy a very little makes them, then do it for the sake of _ B * B - ^ The P»rl» Mora-iM «n<t It* Dea* Here are some grim figures from the annual statistical report of the morgue. Last year no less than nine hundred and nine bodies lay on the marble slabs of the Paris deadhouse, and of this great number more than two hundred were unknown men and women, claimed and recognized by none. Two hundred and fifteen out of the total number had lost their lives by drowning; falls had disposed of eighty-three; hanging ended seventy-six and firearms sixty-eight, while suffocation, stabbing and poisoning brought most of the rest to their death.
