TLe people know thwt no 'higher atateamfltDsMp Is needed niuyA\ihere on earth than should be placed at Hie head of these United 'States. Tie argument is not that the free aad unlimited coinage of silver would ca.use nn excessive flood of money. The fact Is that the Immediate and serious re-' suit of the passage of n silver law would be the cootractton of the currency alarmingly and disastrously. The gold •would disappear, and the paper Issued 'upon It, and the paper Issued on silver, .would .fall Qne-haK In standing. The flood of cheaper money • mUglrt follow with, tlmo, but the problem, would at first be the miracle of replacing the cash that would disapepar.

Miss McXeal ia the 10-year-old daughter of Andrew H. McNeal, the millionaire who conducts the largest foundry in the state. She is probably the most popular women living on the New Jersey side of the Delaware river. She is the head of the exclusive set of Burlington society and can ride a horse or propel a wheel with equal grace. Among the visitors at the McXeal residence ia Edward Burd Grubb, Jr., son of Millionaire Harry B. Grubb, & retired broker and ex-member of the York Yacht club. He is o. nephew of Edward B. Grnbb, Sr., of Edgcwater, N. J., .who was minister to Spain during Garfleld's administration. Young Grubb is about 23 years old, good-look in(r,.and is said to be the possessor of a snug little fortune of $4,000,000. It was one Monday afternoon that Miss Mo- Neal, while on her wheel, met. young Grubb near the post office, "I'll race you to the foundry," said Miss-McNeal "What shall we race for?" he asked. "Well, if you kwe, you must do two hours' work," "she replied. The. one- sided wager was made. Miss McNeal easily won the race: An hour later she mounted a yard engine chartered by Mr. McNeal to shunt cars Jn the foundry yard and ordered Grubb to enter the cab of the engine, "Now, you'll have to do the firing, ghe said to Grubb, "and you must keep on,a good head of steam, for we are going to make some quick runs." Then she pulled the ^throttle wide open and the locomotive sprang forward. The young'miUionaire took ofl his coat and started to heave in coal. He 'was clnnwy at first and handled the larger pieces with his bands. Then he wiped his hands on his white handkerchief and a moment or two 'later mopped his brow with it. ' ._• ' The tracks run through .the. anain street of the town, and the racket of the bell and whistle attracted widespread attention. There were roar* of Inufrb- ter at the picture .young Grubb presented. His white duck trousers-were just sufficiently while to show that lie was'not a regular stoker. The .perspiration poured down his face, but he kept manfully at, work. It was all great fun for the millionaire's daughter, but Grubb didn't enjoy tt, a btt. Grubb was kept at work exactly an hour and a half. Miss McXeal then relented and ran the locomotive back to the foundry yard. . THE FINArJCIAU QUESTIONS. OoTBrnmrat IIIHM • Pamphlet Bxplaln- .

On a plain Bear the city a vast pavilion was erected on pillara 60 feet high. It was hung and spread with the richest tissues, while the gold and precious stones which ornamented it would have mnde. your eyes blink. Adjoining this building were 100 gorgeous chambers for the hundred bridegroome.while for the remaining 10,000 an outer court was inclosed and. hung with costly tapestrv, arid tables were spread outside for the multitude. A separate s<*t was assigned each pair, and all were arranged in a seml-circle-on either hand of the royal throne. Each bridegroom had received'a golden vessel for hi* It* bat ion, and when the last of these had been announced by trumpets to the multitudes without, the brides entered the banquet hall and took theiwplace*. And now don't you think, each bridegroom stood up separately and vowed: : "With this ring I now thee wed," «nd -so on. No, the ceremony WM very simple; the king gave hta hand to Statira and kissed her as his wife, end the other bridegrooms followed hlf example. . PANCEP IN CHURCH.
