There Is no better Jitea before tlie people thau tbe Anieri- _Citn proposlUon of seneral protection to the men on -whom the nation leans. Tlie man wto is the greatest exponent «f this idea, 1ms beon called narrow because of it.

During tlix. 1 aaniiiil.stnlitlon Of I 1 re-si dent Harrison, the National debt was reiliieod .<i25S.l 02,900. This released ilio Kovcninietvt •from tlie animal 'pay lunit of iuu'ivst anionutiiug' to $10,327, TIO, Tliis l« a prac-itcal rtsnilf, and is history. no.t pivuifces. There hfive been three yoars and three months ol! Ucmo- cratic mi*Tiili', ami in that time the increase, in Uie interest bcni'lug diibt of the nation has been $202,315.400. The added annual interest ebaiw resnllin^ from this increase, is .$11.'192, (ili.1. It Is a'limcst iuevita.bJe (Jiat another issue of bonds -\viill occur be£on> tlie Whiito House U rid of the Demo- c-ratk- piwidciit. Those who, in a momc'iit of absentmindedness, turned to thn editorial columns of the Pharos last evening were startled by the headlines, "The Cvivc of ravalysis," Naturally the inference was drawn that the business' paralysis caused by tlie Democratic, administration was under discussion. A careful rc.-Hlini: of the article, however, showed that Dr. Williams's rink Pills was tne euro suggestoU aud a-re-cxamluation of the Democratic State platform disclosed no plank indorsing this remedy. Evidently the Pharos Is misrepresenting the recent platform. This is the same Pharos that the even- ins before wanted a joint debate between .Mount and Shlvely, the two nominees for Governor, notwithstanding tlie fact that the Pharos editorials favoring sound money for tbe past year find its recent support of the Democratic platform luaite all tlic joint debate this neek-of-woods has any call for. The Republican party is charged with assuming tlr.it the people are not capable of sell government. There Is one filing the people kno.w by cxperleune, that leader* in the Democratic party, tiro not equal to Hie government of the tuition. They have tried It and miserably failed, ami will go out of power In disgrace. The Ft Wayne Sentinel'speaks of tlic avalanche of office seekers that will swoop do/wn on JIcKinley next March: It iis the general understanding that the' good G rover, 'after filling the positions with clamoring Democrats'oarJy in his term, placed them tiuder' civil service rules, out of the roach of patronage. The Republican party i^lactxl the first civil service Ja.w on Uie books. It lias always supported that policy. If the merit system governed,,the November election, Hie Republican., party would assume control without question. There are men who decide in advance to be dissatisfied'with, the course of events, There Is no .use dying to please them. It Is a waste o£ time that Is not profitable in view'of the prize awaiting success. • Where Is Uie Republican who thinks that jleKluloy should be defeated? For him there are a score of Democrats who admit that iu the election ot the Exponent of Protection lies the relief of the nation. A man who professes to'believe' in that which Is plainly dishonest,- who votes for It, speaks for it nnd turns traitor for jt, cannot be honest in the true acceptance of the word." If the'Chicago convention'-is like the Indiana meeting, and In proportion, there will bo another collapse of the Coliseum. The roof should be well looked to. .: Workingmeu not only want a chance';! to earn money by liionest toil, but they' want to.be able to purchase as with earnings as "they ever dJd, It is not too mu«h to say that the partisan newspapers will be read more widely thna ever before during.the campaign Just'opened. Domocrats.declare.for the preeent tar' Iff. That Is enough to seal the fate of the party that inflicted It on the people. The declarations of Mr. Tbos. PJatt at this time do not accord with his Ian-, guage before tue convention. HYDROPHOBIA. •• ' - ; s|' • A Simulated Disease Born of Fear --No Known Oa&es.

There are many who think they can aud thorn is 'no reason to doubt theiv Judgment. Manager Keller is working hard to put the Ottos in the front rank of tht amateur clubs of nhe State, and consequently of the country. It is all hut certain that Durrett, the IJocKvjlle pitcher, and Kyle, ihc swift l<- J ft fielder of the same team, will wear an Otto uniform before many days. With the additiou of these two, and possibly one other, who will hold second base down, the team will be as jjooil as can be found.

Paeiuntu Uave Ouecr Wlilmn Tlmt Cannot AlwayH Bo Indulged. About The mannc-r of serving their food patients sometimes have curious fancies. In one case a woman flatly refused to take her beef tea unless the bread which accompanied it was cut in tbc sb^pe of diamonds, while iu another it is always necessary to serve the foo.'l in a blue bowl, for out of nothing else whatever would she take nourishment. A boy who was attacked wiib scarjet fever showed great disinclination to take his food, liutfinally agreed to swallow what was necessary, provided he was fed in the following 1 way: The beef ten, or whatever was to be given him, was put into a silver teapot, the spout was placed in his mouth, and in this manner the food was poured down bis throaf. An elderly gentleman who spent much of his time in hunting in Africa, on being- ask:d if lie fancied any particular dish., replied that he would like a bit cf "lephant's foot. Under certain circumstances this dish is a dainty and nourishing- one, but the price of the elephant being prohibitive, this elderly Nimrod was forced to content himself with beefsteak instead. A clergyman with a broken leg had a great longiEg to put on a pair of stilts, a pastime which he had never yet tried, while a man whose leg had been amputated, although ndmilting the impracticability of the wish, declared that a passion for skating had BO seized upon him since the loss of the limb that he regretted being operated upon chic-fly on that account. STILL ON THE BOOKS. Government Tre«urcr C»rrle» »n Item RcprCMinting: Paper Lone ABO Destroyed. The books of the United States treasury fctill carry an item of $1,000,00, which represents United States notes which are supposed to hare been con- sum e<3 in the greal Chicago fire 25 years ago, says the New York Sun. It was known that there .was $1,000,000 of currency, more or less, in the vaults of tbe subtreasury then, and that none of It was recovered, but the denominations of those notes and tbe exact amount are' unknown, "5 the hooks of the cushicr were consiime:7'also. There could not have been, however, very many dollars less or very many dollars more than $1,0(10,000, and it would simplify the accounts of the treasury and have a great deal of labor to the bookkeepers if congress should pass a bill or resolution recognizing the fact that this money is no longer in existence, for every day when the cashier of the treasury balances his accounts he hr.G to include this item, deducting it or adding it as the case jnay be from the amount in hand. It appears upon every daily, weekly, monthly nnd yearly statement of tbft assets and liabilities of the government as "unknown destroyed United States notes, $1,000,000." \Vntcb roar Chanco, "There is no such thing as luck," said Col. North once. "Everybody in this world has chances. What people, call 'hick' simply means that a man sees his chance, holds on to it, and at the right moment works it for himself. 'Luck?' Nonsense! 'Luck' is simply the faculty of seizing passing opportunities." Oar Flr»t Itank. f Tbe first bank within the limits of the United States was chartered in Philadelphia in 171.
