When man finds pleasure only in memories of the past he is getting old and feeble. Just now the country is entertained by the spectacle of a political party living in recollections. Those "good old days" of free trade and wildcat money when the farmers had plenty to eat, if they could eat all their own crop, and no money are the incentives the democratic platform Offers to vote the democratic ticket Sot content to alone demand free trade those who were entrusted with the •work Of crystalizinjr democratic thought into a national platform declared in favor of the repeal of the 10 per cent, bank tax thus promising the country that the policy which would compel us to buy in Europe would be accompanied by legislation which \vould make our money of less purchasing power the farther from home it got. This is what sports call a -whipsaw. Why the distinguished gentlemen who sat in the Chicago convention desired to cripple an innocent country like our? in this ivay .is explained only on the ground of senile decay. These gentlemen were living in the pleasures of the past. Like the orator they said to the country, --Go back with us 100 years." They remembered the pleasant things of their youth and forgot the bitter experiences under free trade and wildcat money. For those were hard times. When Congress passed a tariff bill and imposed a tax of ten per cent. or> State bank circulation times began to improve. It was this tax that killed wildcat money, this tax which the Democratic National Convention promises to repeal. This plank was introduced by representatives from the rotten baliwicks of the South to secure for them a. currency to speculate on. President Buchanan, a Democrat, in hi? annual message to Congress in 1857, describes "those good old days.'' He said: "With unsurpassed plenty in all the productions and all the elements of natural wealth our manufacturers have suspended; our public works are retarded; our private enterprises of different kinds are abandoned and thousands of useful laborers are thrown out of employment and reduced to want." And for a description of wildcat money ask any old citizen. Every business man had to carry around a bank note reporter and look up the value of the money offered him. Every man who got the money spent it right away lest the bank issuing it would be closed the next day. The farther from home the money got the lesa valuable it was. Indiana money was worth only §95.00 on the §100.00 in Cincinnati. A Logansport paper of Aug. llth, 1854, contains a clipping from the Chicago Tribune, which shows the character of the currency promised by the National Democratic platform. The Tribune says: "We regret to learn that several bankers of this city have made arrangements by which they resolve not to receive hereafter any Indiana se-. cured bank notes for less than two per cent, discount." Think of money that loses two per cent of its value in crossing a State line. What would such money buy in the markets of Europe? With freetrade compelling us to purchase there and money without purchasing power this country would indeed be doubly done. Some of our good Democratic brethren earnestly advocate protection and sound money but cling to the party name and support the party nominees. They forget that the men who make their party platforms make their laws. They refuse to recognize the fact that the people of a sluggish and unprogressive part of the country are not the people to dictate national policies, especially business ones. Business men do not go to the South for new ideas or advice in their business. These men delude themselves with the idea that because they are Demo- party has correct views. Even crats with, correct views, their when their platform says one "thing and their candidate another they fail to see the danger to the country in voting with a party that advocates in its platform free trade and wildcat money- This is especially a. year when in' telligent voters should vote for their principles as embodied in a party platform. GEOKGE WASHTXGTOX in his first annual message under the constitution says of the people of tbe United States: "Their safety and interest require that they promote such manufactures as tend to render them independent of others for esssentials."' And yet. the Democratic National Convention declares protection unconstitutional! THE Democrat committee is mailing to voters in this county copies of Henry George's Protection or Free Trade, while the Pharos is advocating protection. Will this combination catch them coming and going or will it lose them both ways? IT is just as much a duty under the constitution to protect American industries as it is to protect American life and liberty. Tariff Pictures.

S**clal Correspondence. N2W Toss. Sept. 26. One would not tie a woman if there v?asn : t a time when one wanted to talk about clothes. And one wouldn't be very much of a man if he didn't appreciate,.a well dressed woman. The latest fashion suits me to perfection— it is the storming' of the town of red— not the dark red, nor dull red, but warm, glowing, burning red. It is a fashion to be encouraged, because the color is'healthy to look at, and because it throws a good glow on the face'of the wearer. It may possibly induce women who are fools enough to put color on their faces, to present to the world at large their original selves untainted by the rouge pot and its accessories. THE EA'GE FOR RED. I have heard of people worshipping the sun. 1 never felt any inclination to do that, though a man I know was nice enough to sav, wherever I lived was on the sunny side of Easy street, between Velvet and Plush avenues;yet as that was after dinner, it may be taken as a compliment to the cook. But I can fall down and worship a beautiful piece of red material. It has a charm, an indefinable one, and I am happy to say that, the great man dressmaker agrees with me in this. Men like red, babies like red, and dogs like sleeves, and a broad-belt of red velvet, through which is stuck a diamond dagger. The perfect fit of this frock, the lines of the figure so modestly yet so perfectly displayed, are a lesson to any dressmaker. The other one which I particularly admire is a white dotted muslin made up over white silk, with a low bodice of white and gold brocade laced with gold strings just in front. By-the-by,. I want to tell you something about them. A French dressmaker always believe in showing as much as possible of the neck and bust. And this bodice was cut accordingly, but Johnstone Bennett refused to wear it, although her neck is white and lovely, until a modest little tucker of chiffon had been inserted here in New York. It wasn't anything so ridiculous as prudishness, it was 'simple modesty; she wouldn't expose that much of her neck to her own friends, and she didn't propose to do it on the stage. And Johnstone Bennett is one of-the best dressed women on the street in New York, because she is so quietly gotten up that the highest compliment possible is paid her—nobody seeing her off the stage would ever think sbe was an actress. ACTRESSES AS GOOD DRESSERS. George Drew Barrymore is another woman who knows how to dress, and her clothes fit her immaculately. She doesn't make the dire mistake of wearing her jewels to breakfast as is often done by actresses—I mean ,on the stage—nor does she come on in a walking suit with satin slippers. Mrs. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PORE red; it is true that bulls don't like red, | Barrymore off the stage is a good but then you scarcely would care to spend an evening in the society of a bull. CREATORS OP THE FASHIONS. You go to a dressmaker and you ask her something about her clothes— that is, those she has for sale, for I never saw a good dressmaker who wore anything decent herself; and when you talk to her about well- dressed women, she will simply speak of the women of the stage. I asked an intelligent one the reason for this, dresser—that is, sbe dresses like a lady, and she is one of the most delightful women that anybody ever spent half an hour with. Georgie Cayvan dresses well both on and off the stage, and so does Maud Harrison. ' Neither of them make mistakes about the characters they are to assume, and they don't gown a country gentleman's daughter in an elaborate dinner castume, such as the Princess of Wales wouldn't wear at a tamily dinner. Sadie Mar- at least from the front of the house, was lost. Kose Coghlan is always magnificent in her stage clothes, and is really a superb advertisement for whoever makes them. She always suggests a great damask rose at its best, filling the air with perfume. Off the Stage she is quiet in her gowning and would never attract attention. STAGE AND STREET "GET-UPS." Ada Kenan dresses well on the stage, but off it she is untidy-looking and almost as dowdy as Mrs. James Brown Potter, who never seems to have washed her make-up off. Mrs. Boucicault evidently has tbe idea f hat the greater number of bones she displays the more certain is she to please the public; bat wheu that sort of thing is really desired, one pays ten cents and goes to see the skeleton man. Elsie De Wolf dresses well, both on and off the stage; her costumes last year in '-Thermidor" were absolutely correct and as rich as possible. Among the ingenues, Effie Shannon. Maud Adams, Ethelyn Friend and Agnes Miller all dress well, for they understand that young women are not expected to look like matrons-, that diamonds do not belong to youth, the beauty of which is. sufficient to demand only a simple framing. What I am telling you is true: some of it I know absolutely, some of it is from close observation, but that the women of the stage make many of the fa:-..ions is an undoubted fact, and that the women who know how to "We recommend that the prohibitory 10 per cent tax on state bank issues be repealed."—Democratic Platform, 1892. and she said: "Well, any tailor or dressmaker will lay herself out to make their costumes successes in every sense of the word, for, though the conservative people may deny it, though the fashionable women may laugh at it. it is the women of the stage who make fashions. It began when Worth created all those lithe, clinging draperies for Sarah Bernhardt. He understood her figure and plays, saw her possibilities, and he dressed her as he never dressed any other woman before or since. All the world—that is, all the slender women of the world—had frocks made after this style, wore them for tea gowns . and looked charming in them; but did he, make the mistake of putting such dresses on Jane Hading or Mrs. Langtry? Certainly not. He realized that they were women of their time, and he made them the most magnificent gowns of their time. For Hading's brown hair, steel-blue eyes and French face he used wonderful shades of blue, odd tones of pink and brown tones that delighted. For Langtry's perfect' complexion, bronze hair and eyes, never of the same color, he used^dead whites, pure yellows, clear pinks, blues as pure as the skies, and all the clear tones: both women having their costumes after the manner of to-day. Each one has a beautiful neck and arms, and so they were revealed, and not a suggestion in the fit was given of the looseness that pervaded the frocks of the divine Sarah." "JAXE's" GOKGZOU5 DRESSES. The handsomest dresses in New York to-day are worn by Johnstcne Bennett in "Jane." One is a magnificent heavy silk, a bright red, that has a coat bodice with, high fanciful tinot is exquisite , in her choice of clothes. Looking like a bit of old Dresden china, she affects properly enough, a rather elaborate style, and as I don't think it has ever entered anybody's head that dainty Sadie Martinot walked, so one always thinks of her as gotten up most gorgeously, and reclining in a Victoria. Virginia Earned is a good dresser at times, but in the part she is. playing at present she overdresses and is rather too matronly. I have never seen her but once off the stage, and then I had the same" impression—she was too much dressed. A good dresser of the day time on the streets is the woman whose clothes are perfectly fitting, quiet, and yet not noticeable. •WHEN LILLIAN ;.EtrS5ELL LOOKS BEST. I think Lillian -Russell dresses better off the stage than she does on, for she never looks so pretty as when she is in a plain blue cloth dress and a sailor hat. • In "La Cigale" she wore a yellow costume .that might have been a dream of sunshine, but whoever made it chose a yellow with a tint of sulphur, rather than a perfectly pure tone, so that the .good effect, dress to suit the part, how to neither over nor under dress themselves, are really teaching their audiences—at least, the woman part of them—the value of suitability. Then she stopped for breath. I had been nodding like a Chinese mandarin as she went along, and agreeing with her, but it seemed to me I never met a woman who knew so much. THE BEST DRESSED ACTOE. I concluded I would ask the tailor who was the best dressed man on the stage. I did. I wanted to get one solid opinion, so I asked nine of them. The frrst one, who is a great swell, said none of them dressed well; that Osmond Tearle dressed and looked like a gentlem.an both on and ofi the stage, but there had been nobody to take his place. The second man said young Sothern always dressed well. Tbe third'one liked Morton Selten, because he was so English. The fourth one preferred Joseph Holland, because his clothes were quiet and looked genteel. The fifth one fancied Herbert Eel- cey, because he was so stylish. PRICE'S The sixth one liked Kyrlo Bellow, because he was so odd. The seventh one elected as his favorite John Drew, because he was so trig. The eighth one liked Dixey. because you heard what he had on. The ninth one, after much hesitation, said give him Kelson Wheatcroft, for his clothes were those of a gentleman. (I didn't like to hurt his feelings, .but I don't think Mrs. Wheatcroft would like her husband given to the ninth part of a man.) Having in this way gotten a masculine vote, I also got a feminine one. It was unanimous. It was announced that the man who wore bis clothes the best, who was easiest in thorn, and who was the matinee ideal' in dress clothes, was Maurice Barrymora. And for once I went "wid de gang." LITTLE ODDITIES OF THE STAGE. Funny what different opinions people have—especially about the theatre. Now, I think nothing is so absolutely beautiful as to see a young woman in an evening frock, with diamonds on her fingers and in her hair, stand in a blinding snow storm and tell the audience she is starving—don't you agree with me. I think there is nothing so absolutely beautiful as to hear a gentleman with a creamy brogue, dressed in -a light check get up, wearing a fanciful tie and a diamond horseshoe, announce that for gen'erations back his people have been gentlemen—don't you agree with me? Now, I think there is nothing so absolutely beautiful as to see a young woman in an expensive French frock; cut very low in the nec>, cuddle up to the leading man and announce to the audience that she knows nothing of wickedness and she fears to go out of the great city of New York—don't ycu agree with.me? Now, I think there is nothing so absolutely beautiful as to see the servant-maid wear diamond earrings, and announce to the audience that she is of noble birth, and is only taking this position to support her mother and seven small sisters—don't you agree with me? Now, I think there is nothing so absolutely beautiful as to hear tbe wrong maiden insist upon being righted, while on her finger is a most conspicuous wedding ring—don't you agree with me? But I think there are so many absolutely beautiful things in the world— don't you agree with . BAB.
