U is true that the price of ivool has bus been so reduced aa to render its production unprofitable. But Every farmer haa suffered aa account of the groat fall ID tho'prica of hogs. The following la from an exchange: •-Toe Chicago btock jurcls re-ports quoted the price oi hogs on January 10, 18'J5, atif-l 75 per huudred pounds Two years earlier, on January 10, 1893, hogs of iha earno grade were quoted at $7.91 per hundred pounds. Xbo 1833 quotation was a little less than two months before the present Administration nsBumed control of our affairs. Ibe 1895 price was almost two yeara after they had done so. The difference between the two prices li $3.1;} per hundred pounds '•The present tariff law had been in operation more than four months when the lower price was quoted, when, of course, the markets of the world wore thrown w . i j > j lo un with the foreign 1 \ \ 11t wailing anxiously to secure the products of the American farmers. It remains for tho American farmer to say whether It Is worth while to lose $3 15 per hundred pounds in the value of his bogs for the privilege of having the wide markets of the wide, wide world thrown open to him."

A lefson has been taught such by the verdict of a jury In Chicago, finding two police officers gulhy of manslaughter. They were each sentenced to fourteen years in the penitentiary. The police officers, who were under the influence of liquor, placed a Scandinavian under arreat baoaueo ho, after treating them several times, refused to buy more drinks. When tho man broke away the officers ran after him, firing af him A aa tbey ran. One of the bullets made a fatal wound. When the matter was finst brought before the grand jury no indictment was found. 1'he Scandi>- naviaa people made a determined effort tc punish tho men who killed their countryman and finally succeeded. :S;>ccia) Woshlnstoa f.ettcr.l All rncn who achieve distinction in this country arc caricatured. It makes no difference whether tho subject is a statesman, ;i capitalist, politician or a clergyman, the caricaturist is relentless, lie is no rospeetor of persons. Rev. Dr. Parlchui-.st, of New York, whose persistent work in the exposure, of police corruption in tho great city has been ratified by the people at the polls, has been mercilessly caricatured. Ecv. Dr. Talmage, whose reputation as a pulpit orator has but few equals, has been ridiculed by the pencils of the critical picture-makers. When James G-.

The last chapter of tho outrage has been closed and the murder of these men goes unavenged. A special from Quitman, Ga., says: "Dafpite the efforts made by the men who upheld the negroes, and declared that they would be avenged, tho grand jury has-been unable to secure any definite information concerning the men who took part in the killing of the seven negroes, and no indictments were found. Members of the grand jury declare that the testimony was entirely inadequate." It is highly probable that but little effort WM made by tho grand jury to find the pullty parties.

Equally shameful and shameless wero the pictorial assaults ma do upon Grovcr Cleveland at the same time. Benjamin Harrison, an honorable Christian gentleman, was subject to contumely; and even now, when political cartoons are made, i\fr. Harrison appears as a very small man with a "grandfather's hat" almost covering his entire body. Ihe makers of these pictures care nothing- for tho feelings of their victims, nor of their wives and children. A few strokes of the pen or pencil will portray a man in some ridiculous attitude, and then the face is added, with grotesque conditions, and the picture is ready for publication. Tho artist is paid for the picture, or paid by the week to do such work, and he never wastes any sympathy tipon the object of his assaults. Ho has no heart, or else has hidden it away from contact or communication with his conscience. He works ranch as a space, writer works Oil a metropolitan daily paper. It is hig .mothod of earning a living, and ho never likens himself unto a gravcrob- bcr or a Mafia assassin."" Certainly not, for ho is an "artist," a man of genius, and his employers applaud his efforts. "I have censed to pay any attention, to caricatures of myself," sa,ys Speaker Crisp, "I used to be very sensitive., and sometimes angry with the liberties of bull'oom-y, biit that was some time ago. A public man must become accustomed to the bitter as well as the sweet of prominent positions in tho political world." '•1 never notice cartoons reflecting upon myself," says ex-Speaker Reed. "The fellows who make them have no malice. They are doing that class of work for a livelihood. Tho best cartoonists on earth would work for Puck or Judge, indiscriminately, for the biggest pay. Some of them do very effective work in political campaigns. Tbey place lessons before the people much more plainly than editorial writers or orators could do it. 3STo, they have no personal malice in their work, and they arc sometimes instructive as well as amusing." . Wb.cn Mr. Reed was ruling the house of representatives and earning the title of "czar," Thomas Kast illustrated a well-written article concerning the situation with a cartoon of Mr. Reed standing like a tremendous giant, with a big g-avcl in his hand, his head nearly touching the rafters, while down at his feet was a little desk and a very little chair, while underneath the whole were the printed words: "He rises to the occasion.' 1 "They have never abused me," says Senator Quay, "as badly as they abused Ben Butler during his lifetime. As long as I can find consolation in that comparison, 1 shall not complain." "I am, as you know," says Congressman Wilson,- of West Virginia, "tho author of the Wilson bill, very sensitive and retiring in my disposition- I could not truthfully say that adverse cartoons arc not offensive to me, for some of them have been exceedingly distressing." "I am inclined to think,"'says Secretary of the Treasury Carlisle, "that tho cartoonist, as well as the newspaper writers generally, have been rather considerate of me. I do not permit criticism of any character to deprive me of sleep. All newspaper sketches have their place and their value." President Hayes was deeply pained •whenever he was subjected to the ridicule of caricaturists.

Ilovrovor, 1 must confess that tin. 1 pictures are funny enough when they arc about some other fellow." "Uncle Jerry J1nsk," as the late secretary of agriculture was called by his friends, always enjoyed comia picture!). Ue laughed longand often over a picture which was published soon after he entered t'ae cabinet. Tho congress had only a mouth previously created the department of agriculture, and one day he was jocosely called "the tail of tho administration, 1 ' by Joe Cannon, of Illinois. The old farmer statesman re-, plied: "Well. Joe, you know that the tail of this cabinet may keep the flies off of the adjninisti-ation." Cannon went oil, of course, and told the story. Very soon- afterwards a coroij paper pictured a big cow, with Rusk's face, swinging a tail over the cabinet table where President Harrison and the cabinet ministers were seated, while the ah- was full of flies. Cncle Jerry laughed heartily, but it made Mr, Harrison very angry. Attorney General Olney does not like caricatures of himself. He is' a very dignified gentleman, a lawyer, but not a politician. lie was ncror in public life before,' and when lie was recently pictured as an owl, with a pen over his ear, giving wise legal 'advice to Grover Cleveland, who knelt before him with uplifted hands, praying for counsel, Mr. Olney was nearly frantic. Ex-Senator Ingalls was always very sensitive, but on one occasion he waa deeply incensed. Me w.-is the best presiding officer tho United States senate bad known in a generation or more. In the chair ho was dignity and equity incarnate. Xobody knew this better than himself, for he was a very vain man. So, when a comic paper pictured him as waving a gavel frantically at tbe grave and reverend' seigniors of the senate, he was mortified. He said: "This is unfair, indecent and outrageous. I marvel that there is no law to prevent such shameful misrepresentation of the senate. " Senator Morgan, of Alabama., who delivered the remarkable speech against the administration, in which he said: "The clock strikes at the white house- j and the cuckoos here come out of their boxes to tell us the time of day " depre- j cates caricatures. He was very earnest j in what he said about presidential interference ;n senatorial affairs, bjt i when his farnousutterancewashandJcd j by a cartoonist he was shocked to sco the faces of his friends, Senators Gray, Vilas, Voorhccs and McPhcrson, ap- po-arina' as cuclvoo birds cackling from the boxes of big clocks which wero ranged iii tho senate chamber, while ho appeared in the attitude of addressing such a peculiar audience; Senator Allison, of Iowa, who is now so often spoken of as a presidential candidate, views everything philosophically, and analyzes the cartoon subject just as he analyzes problems in statecraft. He says: "If there was not a ercat demand by the people fo OF BOYS Overcoats and Ulsters. Don't let your boys freeze when we will sell you a good Overcoat for $1.

Bnt the president disliked such pictures, and regretted them more on Lament's account than his own, for ho always held Mr. Lament in high esteem. SMITH D. PKY. GEN. GUIDO N. LIEBER. Just Appointed Judge Advocnto Gfnorml I of the Bee«lar Army. Among the Prussian volunteers who fought with Blucher against Napoleon | at Lingly and Waterloo was a med- , ical student from Berlin named , Francis Liebcr, a youth whose rev- | olutionaiy tendencies subsequently , led to his persecution and imprison- | J ment, and to his transfer to the United .States after various vicissitudes of. exile, j Here he ended his days as an honorable ( professor in Columbia college, leaving- , 'behind him a distinguished reputation j as an author, and as one of the ablest | publicists of our century. Of three eons born to Francis Lieber, says liar- ! pcr's Weekly, one died of wounds re- , ceived during our civil war at the battle of Williamsburg, and another was . badlv wounded in the battle of Fort the olMec, in which he bore the responsibilities of ,1 department chief without being grunted tho rank and privileges which belong 1 with thorn. Ill's promotion is in strict accord with' right principles of selection, and it receives the cordial approval of the members of his corps. To the place of colonel and assistant judge advocate general vacated by the promotion of Gen. Liobcr has been advanced Will-urn Wintln-op. who thirty- five years .'.'go marched to the front in the ranks of the Now York Seventh with his brother Theodore Wiuthrop, the soldier author, whose death at Big Bethel was one of the early tragedies of our civil war.

Our people generally know what they want, and what they are willing to pay for; and, therefore, such papers have a mission. I have never seen anything- malicious portrayed concerning myself; but that would make no differcnco. Publicmen belong to the people, and they must submit to all sorts of expression of opinion concerning themselves. They cannot expect praise aJways, for ail men make mistakes." Secretary of War Lament was prrrate secretary to the president during- the first Cleveland administration, and every cartoon concerning Mr. Cleveland' pictured Mr. Lament as a little bit of a fellow, a sort of page to a Qnisote, making him appear as ridiculously small and insignificant as possible. He' 'was probably the broadest- gauged man -who ever occupied thit position, and looked upon all such pie~ , tnrcs. with a smile or a laneh which Donelson. A third son, and the youngest, Guido Norman Lieber, has just been promoted to the rank of general officer as the head of the army department of judge advocates, having charge of the administration of military law. Like his father and his two brothers, Gen. Lieber has had his experience ol war. He was born March 21, 18:57, in Columbia, S. C., where his father was serving as professor of history and po- %VUd nml I.oncsomo Lifo of the Siguu.' I .Service M<-n There. The railway trains run doily to (ho top of Pike's 1'enk four months in tho y.car—from June I to the last of September; sometimes a few days longer if there is patronage enough to pay cx-j pensos. During the rest of the year, eight long mouths, the signal-service men st.iy there ylonc—two of them—; and see nothing of the rest of mankind until tho snow melts in the spring, although they .arc in constant communication by telegraph. Sometimes, says a correspondent of the Chicago Record, they come down on snow&hocs to repair the wires if the storms te.-ir them, apart, and in an emergency they have been as far as Manitou or Colorado -Springs. The railway grade has made these journeys much easier thnn they used to be when there w,-:s only the mule trail to follow, but it's a Jong seven miles and a very steep climb to return to their eerie. The snow begins to fall early in October, Last year the ground was covered six feet deep by October li,' and the stone huts on the mountain top are buried under the drifts until the sun begins to melt them the last of April or the first of May. The men have books and cardsand backgammon, and when they need exercise they can shovel the snow from the doorway. But it is a long and dismal imprisonment, and a countryman who went up on the cars with us expressed the universal opinion when, after hearing the story, he exclaimed: "Gosh! I'd rather spend the winter in a good warm jaO," There is a report that the station ia litical economy in the University of South Carolina. At this institution ' to be abandoned this fall, as its utility Gen. Lieber was graduated in 1S3C, to the weather bureau is doubtful, and and at the Harvard law school three the observers will not be sorry if it years later. After a practice of two ', turns out to be trite. years at the Xew York bar he entered the' army, May 14, 1SC1, receiving the brevet of captain for gallantry at the battle of Gaines Mill, and the full grade later on, serving meanwhile as adjutant of his regiment, the Eleventh infantry. He saw war service also at Yorktown, Malvern Hill, the second battle of Bull Eun, and in the Teche and Red river campaigns of Louisiana, gaining a second brevet, that of major, A .3ln£"«Jur Aclvei/turc. . ' The pupils of the Polytechnic school in Paris are, like our na.val and army cadets at Annapolis and West Point, re- 1 nowned for their learning and discipline; but also, like bur own cadets, occasionally they become restive and break bounds. Recently some of the pupils met, with a singular adventure. Thcv were sentenced to remain within for gallantry, and at the close of the " tlic school limits for some misdemeanor, war the brevet of lieutenant colonel for ' aad of course were then more eager to "faithful and meritorious service dnr- K et outside.

The foolish boys eagerly followed their leader, thinking it a good joke; but, to their terror, they soon lost their way, and for two davs and nights was appointed major and judge advocate of volunteer service, serving as such on the staff of Gen. Banks. February 23, 1SC7, Maj. Lieber was transferred from the infantry to the judge advocate general's department oi the army, being on duty as professor of wandered through a labyrinth, without eating, drinking or sleeping.
