'A severe attack on Joseph R, Dnnlop, who was the edttor «ud publisher of the Chicago Dispatch, Is -made In the annual report of the fourth assistant postmaster general of the United Smites. In duscusslng the work of the post-offlce inspector^ din-Ins the fiscal year covered by the report, General Maxwell says: "There u* no more contemptible member of society than the professional blackmailer. Joseph, R. Dunlop, the editor and publisher of the Chicago Dispatch, by tltia sort of journalism earned for lum«olf contempt nnd bitter l«i.tivd. and at the same time cleared a handsome fortune. His paper was publteheil solely for money, • nmd he pandered to the most degraded classes and depraved mates to attain his ends. Constantly did. he transgress the laws of decency.

(Cut'this'out and put In your'pocket for reference.) In 'the last leaflet attention was called to the fact that the amount of money 'In the world bad increased much more rapidly than Its population In the past hnlf century, and especially the amount of godd. The gold money of the world as shown In Unit leaflet amounts to six times fls much today as a. hnlf century ago, and after taking Into account the increase hi population, the amount of gold money in the world for each Individual .Is four times as great as a half century ago. ° There Is. 'however, another test of the actual value of gold even more accurate and interesting than that which merely considers 'the quantity of that metal in use as money. This test Is the amount of gold which a given quantity of labor will buy. The only real standard of value in the world Is labor. It is this which produces all commodities for which gold is exchanged, and it is, therefore, the real standard by which to measure gold. 1C a day or an hour of labor will buy loss gold today than it dW 50 years ago then it may be properly said that gold has "appreciated." If it will buy more gold today than it did 50 years ago, then gold has depredated, and if each grata of gold which an hour of labor buys will-also purchase more of commodities than it did CO years ago, then the laborer IMS 'again multiplied the value of his time and skill. \ committee of the United. States? Senate, known as the Aldrich Committee made a thorough investigation a few years ago Into the question of wages and prices, and after a long and thorough research made a report, the accuracy of which Is generally accepted That investigation showed that a day's labor iu nearly all the trades would, in 1S91,' buy about double the amount of gold that It did 50 years earlier, and do it with less Hours of work in a day. For Instance, plaster- crs who, In the good old free silver days of 1840 got $1.50 per day, were paid ?3.50 in 1SOO; painters whose wages in 1840 were $1,25 la 1S90 were paid $2.50; -wheelwrights, wno earnea .$1.25 In 1S40 got'i?2.50 in 1800; 'engineers who received $2.00 per day in 1S40 wore paid $4.25 in 1S90, and so on. Taking eleven representative classes of -n-orfcingmen engaged Jn the particular industries, as a basis, it was found that the average rate of wages advanced from 51-30 per day in 1840 to $2 37 in 1S90, or that an hour of labor would earn nearly twice as rnudi gold in 1890 ns It did in 1840. How then can It be asserted that gold has "appreciated?" it hns depre- SPANJSH BARBARISM. Philadelphia Press: Wen-authenticated stories of barbarous deeds by Spanish .troops -in Cuba continue to reulch lie.ro. On September 15, as Colonel Agulllera, with DOO Spanish troops, was .proceeding toward Vegas,.he was fired on from aniibush and ten of-his men killed. After ono volley, 'the Cuflxins' fled, pursued by Spaniards. In tlie chase, the Spaniards caime across the Pablo Diaz colony, composed of twenty-five portions, men, women and Children. Colonel AuBUillera <asl«d if they had seen any rebels In the neighborhood. On receiving a negative answer, he ordered a general slaughter of everybody, including children from 1 to 10 years old. A young mtiu begged to be killed, in- gitea'd of his mother, but 'he was killed with umchete and bayonet in the presence of the mother. Then they transfixed the mother upon a bayonet, after wliich they disemboweled Mr with a machete. The little children were tor- uieuited with the end of the bayonet and then finished with the machete. Of (the twenty-live human beings present 'in that colony nineteen were butchered and six made their escape, hiding themselves in the eane. Besides truthful witnesses, the troops boasted of what they had done wiheu. they went bock to Vegas, about two miles from the colony. Oil September IS, three -days after the slaughter, a traveler passed by me •spot of the murder nn'd was horrified to see carrion crows devouring the bodies None tad been buried.

Electric Bitters Is a medicine for any season, but perhaps more generally needed when the languid,, exhausted feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid and sluggish and the need of a tonic and alterative is felt.

Y., says: It may be a pleasure to you to know the high esteem In which Chamberlain's medicines ore held by the people of your own States, where they must be best known. An aunt of mine, who resides at Dexter, Iowa, was about to visit me a few years since, and before leaving home wrote me, asking If they were sold here, stating If they were not she would bring a quantity, with her, as she did not like to be without them. The medicines referred to are Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, famous for Its cures of colds and croup: Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheumatism, lame back, pains in the side and chest, and Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di- arrhoea Remedy for bowel complaints. These cedlclnes have been in constant use in. Iowa for about a quarter of a century. The people have learned that they are articles of great worth and merit, and unequaled by any other.

Ml to* Woria Mont Mow Go to Ott tot Camphor. One of the unconsidered trifles that the mikado hns.picked up us the result of the .Chinese war is the monopoly of camphor, says the Indian Agriculturist. That drug- is produced only in Japan and Formosa, and, though a variety known as Borneo camphor is obtained from llorneo and Sumatra, it cannot compete with the product of the evergreen laurel of the eastern Asiatic islands. Inasmuch as wirophor, apart from its many and varied therapeutic uses, is an essential ingredient in thq composition of nearly all the new explosives, the demand for it is very large. The Japanese are well aware of the valuable monopoly they have blundered upon rather than sought and have already begun to limit the export by imposing duties. As a natural consequence., the price of the drug has risen rapidly since the war coine to on end and bids fair to rise higher. Happily, the commercial Instinctof the Japanese statesmen Is as sound as their political instinct, and they ore not likely to abuse the monopoly they have, acquired by forcing 1 the price up to prohibitive rates. The chief concern of the Japanese government will, for some time to come, be the finding of money to'pay for the ships and munitions ol war which, will secure the mikado in the possession of the spoi Is he has already won. Properly bandied and wisely administered, camphor should prove a valuable source of revenue and contribute a handsome quota toward the cost of the military preparations vhich pertain to the peace of the dragon kingdom. PORTABLE HOUSES. Made for • Great Variety of C»M mnJ Exported to Other iJindi. Portable houses are made of almost any size and for a great variety of uses, says- the New York Sun. There are portable dwelling-houses and portable boat-houses, and portable barracks, and portable clubhouses, lawn pavillions, engineers', miners', contractors' and other offices, bathing^houses, stables, bowling alleys, billiard-roonjs, hospi-' tals and so on. There have lately been made two-story portable houses. A two-story portable house of ten rooms costs $1,800. A house, of one room, Stlli with one door and one window, ' can be bought for $50; with two cote, two tables and two stools, for $60. Sometimes n roan who owns »• portable house hires lajjd on the seashore or in the mountains and sets his house up there for a season, takes it down and stores it in the fall, aod next season hires land in another place and sets his house up there. Portable houses are set on stones or blocks, amd on posts, and sometimes they are set on permanent foundations. People sometimes have chimneys built where they set up their houses. The portable house manufacturers sell terra, cotta chimneys in sections to be staCKed up and it is not unusual for the house- owner simply to run out a stovepipe for a chimney. We export portable houses to Cuba, South America and South Africa. THE CHINESE SCHOOLBOY He Mnit Stndy 't Eat This is the complaint of thousands at this season.
