Herbert, the eccentric artist, many amusing stories are told. He insisted that his models should feel the emotions which animated the characters they were to represent, and once, in ex- gaining this necessity to a somewhat stolid model, became himself affected to ;ears at the mere thought of what the other ought to feel. He had, moreover, a sense of humor and a calm way of dis- >laying it. One day he was with Landseer at the Athenaeum, after an academy meeting, and the latter called for refreshments. "Some of zat also to me," said Herbert to the waiter, in the broken English he affected. Whe,n it was brought 10 continued, "Ah, I shall have no money. Pay for me, Landseer." His friend paid, and they went out to- jether. Herbert then stopped to-listen ;o a beggar in the street. "Ah, stay a bit." said he, "I want to do a leetle charity, and you, my dear friend, must lend me a shilling." Soon after they came upon another Deggar, and a similar bit of charity was '.ndnlged in, Landseer furnishing the money. When Herbert rejoined him, it was to say with the utmost coolness: "Let me see, borrowed at the club one shilling; charity, two shillings. Ah, 1 do owe you three shillings. Yet, now 1 zink of it, you shall do zo charity. It will be good for your soiil. I shall pay you ze one skillingl"—Youth's Companion. A Song About Nothing. 1 will sing you u song about nothing at all And to give it iv sort of a teeter I will put it in verso of thu form that they call, In the classics, the anapest meter.

Adopted at Cedftf Rapids July I. 1801 ftepabUefltt party of IOWA, m eo» ' " n assembled, gives renewed expression of devotion to the principles of tfia national Republican party, and declares • acceptance of those principles to be tbd bond of union with the Republican party of Iowa. We commend the patriotic, wise and courageous administration at President Harrison. We commend the Republican party In./ the last congrosft for its redemption of iledgea made to the people as to a revision*of the tariff lu the interest of home Industry, and for its work in behalf of liberal provision for pensions for the old soldiers, in accordance with the pledges of the nation. , , We approve the coinage act, by whiclu the entire product of the silver mines of. the United States Is added to the currency of the people, aud out ot which experiment may come a wise adjustment of financial questions liberal towards west- irn interests. We commend most heartily the policy bhat has been Inaugurated looking to ro- slprocal trade relations with other peoples of the American continent, and the ad- • mlnlstrative efforts now making for the enlargement of foreign markets for Ame»* lean beef and pork. We assert that the Republican party stapds of record in every state of this Union in favor of elections bused upon tithe-. freedom of the individual conscience of the. citizen, and that the Republican party may be trusted in Iowa or in any state, to" promote any plan of reform, Australian. 6r other, caTcrnated to extend this liberty and to further protect the purity, of the- ballot. While inviting to our shores the worthy poor and oppressed of all nations, we- earnestly commend laws that protect our country and our people against the influx of tho vicious and criminal classes of'-' • foreign nations and the Importation of laborers under coutrucl to compete with our citizens; and earnestly approve tho • rigid enforcement oC these laws and o€ such further legislation as may be acces- sary. We favor such legislation as will Impose upon all classes of property, corporate and. individual, equally the burdens of taxation. We favor the passage of the Conger lard bill; state legislation tending to promote farmers' institutes and enlarging the- powers of the dairy commissioner. We regard the world's Columbian exposition as an important event in the world's- bistory, and we are in hearty sympathy with, every effort to make it a success: and in the friendly ' rivalry of states we should make a creditable exhibit of Iowa's products. And we favor a liberal appropriation by the next general assembly for this purpose, "that our prosperity and", greatness may bo fully exemplified." ' We take pride in the record of this. state; we recognize that its growth and power, its prosperity and its good name,. have been the fruits of its- industrial people, and we believe in such policies, state- and national, as will promote justice and wider opportunity among these classes. To their support, in the future as in the: 1 past, we pledge our most intellligent judgment and most sincere endeavor. We point to the record of the state under Republican administration for justification in the declaration that we t'avo-r economy and honesty in the administration of public att'airs; to that record, also,. for judgment that the Republican party has kept faith with the people in the obli- - gations of the past, and upon that record 1 . the Republican party invites continued support aud confidence. We have no apologies to offer to th«s people, nor to the Democratic party, for the Republican record on the conspicuous issue in the state campaign this year. ''In, the interests of true temperance," and under the laws of Iowa, enacted by the representatives of its sovereign people, the- saloon was made an outlaw in this state. we charge that the outlaw has had the patronage, counsel and protection of the> Democratic party; that the Democratic- party, as it has won power, has nullified the law, defied the authority of the state and the expressed will of the people, and that now appeal is made to the electors of the whole state for approval of the lawless work. We recogni/e that the issue is law against defiance of law, subordination against insubordination — the state of Iowa against the Democratic party. We recognize that the issue is between "the interests of true temperance" and the freedom and rule of indiscriminate traffic. We renew our allowance to tha people . of Jowa, and submit to them the determination of the issue, recognizing that the control of the next legislature by the Democratic party means state wide license, and that tha control of the next legislature by the Republican party means a continuance of opposition to the behests of the saloon power, through the maintenance and enforcement ot the law. We denoun'ce the . Democratic party of ' •Iowa as insincere in its dealings with the saloon issue. We charge that party with service to the saloon and purpose to strengthen its grasp upon the homes and politics of tho ;-Uvtu. . We cite in proof of , this its surrender this year of the local option feature of the plank 'of 1889, trader which last year pretense of indorsement • by the state was made, aud to which pledge was given in petition for legislative authority. We charge that this abandonment of local option is the forerunner of further premeditated betrayal, and that trust iu the Democratic party will end in complete breaking down of the temperance legislation of the state, and a complete turning over of the stato, in every township thereof, to the pollution and fester of the saloon, against whatever pro-' test of communities ,uow free. We protest against the re-election of Horace Boies to the 'governorship of Iowa. ' We charge that in his unwise and ambi- . tious ztal, to cultivate the favor of alleged "new allies in the northwest," and upon that strength to commend himself to the favoring graces of G rover. Cleveland, that he did most outrageously misrepresent the .honest, industrious, frugal aud prosperous" people of J,pwa in his lieiorm club banquet speech in the city of New York on the 23d. of December last. We denounce as purposely misleading the.. alleged statistics with which the governor assumed lo sustain the indictm'eut against the state which had dignified his pame. We denounce., the Qttuinwa platform of this year as framed' with'"delioerate purpose to mislead and deceive, wherein sympathy is expressed whore none is felt; wherein help ia proposed whero nono Is rendered: whoi-oiu purposes are. avqived which are 001 entertained. In support of this indictment we point to the prutcnued triEncUhlp for the sol- fliers, and to the arraignment at the same time of the Republican party tor having appropriated money tor the paymentoi pensions; to the "tree silver" pianfc. intended to deceive the supporters of "free and unlimited coinage of silver;" to the plank assuming to ''afirm the doctrine oi control and regulation of railroads." a policy implanted upon the state under th-e administration of the last Republican governor, against the opposition, secret and open, ot the Pewocratic party,' extending to an alliance with corporate power iu the urst election of railroad commissioners under the laws in 1388. We denounce the Democratic party of 'lows ,for misrepresentation* iu its platf orm ftnd be- foro the pooplo. of tho lyjcKinloy bill/charglpg 'that it seeks to mislead the people through reiteration of uu truths as to thu effect of tuat bUl, w»d in all ways -to worljupon "Wlae» you &eed anything Jii Plows Q&U on the aew Firm of .
