The' gold number of hands, would be in an ] lutdal contest Tuesday evening wm a We givs tlio tolloTTtui; article, which ts attributed to Boh Ingersull, and is ifoinjj the rounds of tlio democratic and labor pruts, for the purpose of making som* fueblo comments on it: "Kvery man." says Colonel Ingor- aoll, •ought to he willing to pay for What he get*. He ought to desire to givo full vnliin received. The man who wants $2 worth ot work for $1 is not an honest man. The mnn who 'wants others to wovk to sueli an extent that their lives are burdciu Is utterly liaartloss. The toil of the world should continually decrease. Of what uso ar» your invontiotm if uo burden is lifted from industry? If no additional comforts find llioir way to lite home of labor, why should labor (ill the world With wealth and live in wantf Kvnry labor saving machine should help thn whole world. Every one should tend lo shorten lho hours of labor. K UIVIOII- nblo labor is a source of joy. To work for a wife :iml child, to toil for thoso wo love, Is hnppincsa provided wo c:in make them happy. Dut to work like u slave, to »oo your wife and children in I'ags, to sit ut a table wln're food is coarso and scarce, to vise at four in tlio morniug, to work all day nnd throw ' your tired bone? upou a misertiblo bod at night, to live without leisure, without rest, without making those you love comfortable and happy —this Is not living, it is dying, a slow, lingering cru- cihxion. The hours of labor should be shortened. Willi the vast and wonderful improvements of the ntncleunlh century there should bo not only the necessaries of life for those who toil, hut the comforts and luxuries as well. What is a reasonable price for lanor? I answer: Such a tiriVu as ivill enable a man to live, to have the comforts of life; to lay by something for hi* declining years, so that he can lnivo his own homo, hit own fireside; so that hn can presorve the feelings of a m m. I sym­ pathise with every honest v.tCorl mndo by thn children of labor to improve their uondiliou. That is a poorly gov- orned country in wliieli those who do tlio most liavo tho least. There is something wrong whan men are obliged to bog leave to toil. We are not vol a civilizod people. When wo are, pauperism and crime will vanish from our land." Perhaps one of the hardest crilicisms on Injersoll's theology, or luck «f it, for him to answer, is '.he assertion that whole aim of his assault on chris- "C ZAU K KKII" has been triumphantly vindicated by the supromo court of the United States in his rulings as to a quorum by the ur-auimous decision of the court, democratic as well as republican members. 'Ihis is glory enough for an ex-spenker am! for the party of which ho is a distinguished member, and no one enn rationally dispute the justness and common sense of his position. It is only a shamu thai the rule was so long allowed to prevail that to beat a measure members could sit in tkeir seals and refuso lo vote, thus preventing a quorum nnd blocking the wheels of legislation. It never can bo dono any more by aay party. If a member la present he will bo counted present whether ho voles or not. Iho tianily is to tear down and build nothing in its place—to take away the stall' the christian leans upon and ofTer him no support in its stead. To ns it suoius that a similar criticism is applicable to tho above article. It is all vory nice to say, in well rounded periods, that the laboinr should havo not only thn neccs sarics but the comforts of life, and thai kis hours of work should bo shortened and made so easy that his labor woald only prove a pleasant pastime. But Hob forgets to tell us how this is to bo accomplished, and MiU is just what mankind has been looking to And out for G,000 yoars, or since our first parents were driven from the garden, with the curse "in the sweat of thy faco shall thou oat bread." Glittering fenoi nlities sound pretty but they eon- tain no meat. Mr. Itigcisoll wants #400 a night to deliver his lectures, and he wauls $26,000 or $60,000 attorney's fee lo presacute an' important case in the courts. How, then, can ho advooato the rich giving all the profits of their business to tho laborers, instead of retaining it themselves, as ho is doing? Mr. Ingersoll will not take his own medicine and nobody elso will take it as loag ns huruiib nature remains as it now is. Nnturo and education havo given him a capital that will command a dividend of $500 a day, and ho lakes it. Tho samo forees havo given the largo majority of men a capital that will command only one or two dollars a day ami we take that. In other Aords wo nil take just what we can get, no move and no less, and it is all based on supply and demaul. If there wero as many Ingersolls as there arc common laborers he would havo to work nt tho samo prioo they do or starro, as go mo of thorn do. No law has ever been devised by man, or will r.e, that cau put tho raett on an equality so that one man cau have or hold just as much as every other man, nnd whoever talks it, wuolhei It bo Ingersoll or anybody elso, talks nousenso. It is tho moat egregious error of our. times to sappose that every man who carefully saves a few hundred or thousand dollars, as tho case may bo, and goes Into business, has left the ranks of labor and should be the legal and rightful prey of all other classes ot meu. Nine out of leu of these men who oiubark in business would die bettor ofl if thoy had oontin tied In tho rolo of employes rather than employers. And more than this their labor would have boon lighter nud their mental strnia ten fold loss. You cannot make nil Ingersoll ora Jay Uould out ot every man, neither cau you bring ihsra down to tho level of the average man. Ami about l<ie only thing you oau do is to let each occupy the sphere that nature assigns him. just as has been done all through the past. At least wo must do this until some ot the great reformers blaze the way that leads up to the Utopia of which, they dream, but which, up to dato thoy have not, uufoldod to the average vision. P EKIO XAI .I.T we think the Stale Register away oft iu its demand that the statu convention instruct its delegates for Jas. ({. Blaine. No republican can be placed on Ihw delegation but is a friend lo Iilaiuo and would bo glad to sse him president. But he hns declined to be a candidate and for Iowa lo nstruct for him would be almost an open insult to President Harrison. It would be perfectly safe to let the delegation go uiiinstructed, and we believe it would bo the proper tiling to do. When the convention assembles at Minneapolis the proper thing lo do will bo to present the best and most ayail- nblo name and then rally avour.d it wiih unanimity and proceed to elect our man. No paper iu thu state abuses Hill (if stivh a thing is possible) more venomously, from day to day, thau the democratic Dubuque Telegraph. And yot it has beon forced to the wall and com pelted to admit that it will support Hill zoalously for the presidency if ho is nominated by the democrats for that position, (f this is not 111* height of parly subserviency wo would like to know what is. If it was merely a personal grudge, or a diidike to the man from sonio trivial cause, tho position of tho Tolegrapli would be tcnablo and proper. Hut ihis is not the case. He is denounced ns a aorruptloulsl, a stealer of a state legislature and everything thai ought to make a man contemptible su<l beneath the dignity of any ollico. It even went so far in a lending editorial lasl (Saturday overling as to advise his expulsion from the U. S. senate. And there is no doubt but everything it says is true. And yet. if by a continuation of frauds, steals and corrupt practices he succeeds in securing the nomination, thou he will be supported as heartily ns though lie wero the best man in thu United States! If party politics hava got to this level, toon indeed, may we have gravo fears for the republic. It is offering a premium for the most gigantic frauds ever perpetrated, and no honest man may ever hope In secure the nomination to any oflice. It would bo an honor ami a credit to tho democracy to be dofeated with such a candidate and li would be a disaster to It to elect stioli a man. We know that the desire for party success is great, but no party eau afford success at tho prieo of dishonor. While tho democratic party has fow statesmen in its ranks it has many puro and honest meu, oven besides Cleveland. One of theso it is its right to domaud as a candidate. If they aro all ignorod and such a man is Hill is put up for their sufl'ragos it is not ouly their right but thoir duty lo refuse lo support him. Wo do not bellevo that the party will dare lo nominate him, but if it does wo havo confidence enough in the American people to defeat him by an overwhelming majority. ABOUT CORPORATIONS. uproar and confusion, but every state in the union would follow suit. Not because capital was intimidated or threatened with confiscation, but because laborers everywhere saw tho greatest possible danger to themselves by such legislative interference with tho corporations which furnish them employment. It is folly to denounce corporations aa monopolies. There are monopolies that aro oppressive, overbearing nnd tyrannical, crushing wherever they ean get In their blows 'o advantage, but as a rule they derive none of their powers to so - crush from the fact of their being corporations. A partnership wilh three members, each pu'ling into the business a million of dollars, will prove more of an obnoxious monopoly, grinding and oppressing labor and the public, than a corporation with that amount of capital stock. The corpora- lion would probably have a hundred members, and a hundred persons will not oonibino to raiso prices in tho manner three persons would. The parent industries which employ the armies of men are not private partnerships. The reason is obvious. A man with a million dollars' worth of property which ean be taken for his debts will net go into partnership with men who each own but $10,000 worth of property. Ho is not going to place his million where lliroo or four men with SIO .000 can cranio debts for bim to pay up to thu extent of his million. In CHSO or bankruptcy his million may go and their ten thousand is all Ihey can lose. Wktn capital must lake such a risk it will not bo investod. THIRD ANNUAL SESSION Of Northeast District Lodge No. 1, I. O. O. T., Hold at .Maynard, Fsb'y 33, 134 and 85, 1893. The report of tho committee ou credentials showed tweutr-two lodge, represented by sixty delegates present. There were also about twenty-lira visiting honorary inumbors in attendance, aud wilh the Maynard Good Templars, il was the largest meeting ever held *,u tho district. The district degree was eonfoired upon sixty-seven delegates and honor ary mcmbors. The District Chief Templar announced his appointments of committees on juvenile work, gospel work, literature, oy-laws, courtesy and advisory eom- miltce. The oflicers' reports wore presented and adopted. The report of tho secretary gave tlio present membership of district at 1490, an Increase of nearly 100 per cent during the year; an addition of nineteen new lodges; seventeen with a meniborslrp of 641 organized br Sister Anna Id.

Interesting papers were read by (?. S. J. T., Mrs. E. M. Remington, of (,'ednr Rapid*, and Grand Scc'y, Perry Perkins, of Des Moines, both of which wcu< well received. Hon. B. F. Wright, of Charles City, gave a rousing address on prohibition, presenting his views iu strong and convincing words and impressing his arguments wilh apt and forceful illustration. Throughout the papers and address Iho stubborn facts and earnest appeals wero saudwiched wl'.h bits of wit aud humor that made most palatablo the Intellectual feast of the ovening. A pleasant surprise was tha prcsenta- liou to Sister Anna M. Tyng, our district lecturer and orgauizer, of a gift of silverware, as a token of the appreciation nnd esteem of her friends all ovor the dislriet. Bro. U. L. Hubhell made the presentation in titling words, and Sister Tyng gracefully responded, ami If sho tried, did not conceal the fact that to be thus remcmbured by those among whom she had labored most faithfully and successfully, was very gratifying. The" exercises ot both evenings were interspersed with excellent music by tho Maynard choir, and well rendered solou by Miss Belle Day, of Mnynard, aud Miss Maud Starrett, of Minneapolis. It was said, by thoso who know, that this Mnynard session was the largest and best and most euthusias'.ie district lodge session ever held in the state. M. J. N ICHOLSON, D. C. T. E. M.

A woman has a headache and she walkn around Iho house wilh it wrapped in a hntidkereliief dipped In bay rum, and nlm scolds the sorvanlM, adininlsl rs punishment to the child that don't need It, nnd wonders what In the world »ho ever not married for, nnd wlxhes ulio were dead, and then tins a cup of tea about every three-quarters of an hour. Stio s:iya hive in lnttln It "wear oft;" but lt.'ii the faintly who endure th'> wonriiiK proer-aa, and until i headache has become notlibiK but i memory (be entire establishment en durct< It. When a man t'etn a headache ho comes home and annoimccR thai he lu going to die, and then he goes to bed, line ihc doctor sent for, tahoH whatovor he gtveH him, nrnnnx, and iiinkc» a great time generally, gets* the iiympathy of the en tire household, and the day after to morrow la quite well and ready to go down town and tell how noar he came to dyl.'g, what a close enll ho had, and how only tho skill > t tho doctor and the nursing of I I I H wife saved him. Now tho man's way Is decidedly tho best. He gots rid of tho caiifto of the headache, and as tho entire household has been moaning, 'Toor papa!" ho has their sympathy. Tho woman just lets tho headache go awuy, irritates and upsota evorybody, and It 1 B certain that it will oomo back another day. Sermonn In Saltre.

Tho question whether stolen goods ought to be charged to tho thief at wholesale or retail rales Is one that has more than onoo ongiigod tho attention ot tho courts, says a lawyer. It la often a KOitous nuittor for tho prisoner whothor tho goods nro cntlinntod at wholesalo or retail, for tho difference sometimes amounts to that between grand and petit larceny. In several oases the courts havo allowed tho prisoner the benefit ot wholesalo rates, and thus rated his crimo as petit larceny, but, as a rule, thefts of gooda from a ntore are eetl muted at retail, for, as a judge sold not long ago, "Considering tho way tho prlaoner came by the goods, wo oan hardly afford to wholesalo thom to him," i:utUlhn CanmiUed, Dean Stanley stated onoo that Buddha was canonized IIH St. Josaphot, who la commomoratod Nov. 27, by tho ohuroh, and tho statement caused muoh dlsoue slon In England.

Wlien dishes are now served covered it is understood that It is merely for tho purpose of keeping them warm. This was not, howevnr, tho principal reason why they were served covered during the dark and middle ages. It was the fear that polBon might be Introduced Into them surreptitiously between tho cuisine and tho table where thoy wero to lie served to the kings, or the lords, or even to persons of Inferior rank. The covers were not removed till the master of the house had taken hla place. All dishes nfterward served wore, brought on the table In tho same maunor. It wns the custom originally when the dishes were uneoverod for some of the servants to llrst partake of them, but this custom was afterward In part replaced by tlio servants touching tho food with one of several objects which were regarded as InTnlllble preservatives against poison. ThrBe objocts wore the horn of the unicorn, a serpent's tongue, tho fabulous stone found In tho head of the toad, serpentine, agate, etc. The llrst was considered the best, but as the unicorn never existed, Its horn was roplaced by Hint of the narwhal or by a shark's tooth, which wero sold by all tho druggists Instead of it and under Its name. Many persons kept a small pieco of it at tho bottom of their drinking glassos. Unicorn's horn was so rare and precious that It wns worth more than ten times lt» weight In gold. It wan nover proved that the stoiio alleged to come from the head of the tond had that origin, and the druggists who Bold It know thnt what they vended was a mineral dug out of tho earth, but this did not prevent the fraud or put en end to tho superstition.
