Must take notice j the Vincennes news will take notice i that it is the City county and state taxes that oppresses the people and that none of these go into the coffers of the general government. It is consumed by Small iry officials. Nor Cau the news Hope to teach the ironclad a Vic principles. A paper that has but few of those can Genc Ralh Quot defend the few whereas one with a dead Load of Quot pm is Apt to Cave to. Like a hat smote with a War club when it attempts to watch All. This is because but few principles will Quot news would t dare directly to favor the reduction of common and skilled labor to the scale of prices Liat prevail in foreign countries yet its free Trade principle the prominent one it has. If put into effect would produce that result. The news is for High wages and Low or no Tariff. These principles do not Quot consist. Quot we Are a nation of worker and the policy that gives plenty of work and fair wages to labor is the True policy. And it is Good policy to keep the revenues at flood tide till the National debt is paid off. No individual or state a nation should owe a debt one moment after acquiring the ability to pay it. Nobody is fool enough to deny that the duties on goods Are not paid in part by the consumer and Consumers of Many commodities ought to pay All they do and More. All taxes should be lifted from the Back of manual labor. To tax a Man that has no Means of earning his bread but by ten or twelve hour s hard toilsome bodily servitude every Day is inhuman. Let the Revenue be drawn from those who have it. Money begets Money. Lot it beget taxes. Let the Rich pay live the poor hand of labor a Chance. Instead of being taxed the industrious broken and worn labourer or Mechanic at fifty should be put upon the pension Roll. And every worn and needy old woman should be treated As Well. What would be thought of a fan Lily that did t care for its aged and helpless Niue bars a nation is a family and it should care for its Sii Ould protect tender youth and decrepit ago. It is True that we have poor houses supported by the Public Rhey Are poor affairs Lanyo Ulicni arc but Lith sniper ii to ios. And when you Tak from the won Dut old Man his own Ami Seoul him to shiver Anu starve amongst a i crowd 0 poor rim Turi s As Nisi Lable As Hin Iscle under the insolent treatment of Unsung .

And the same Applys to the worn out Ohl woman in a greater degree even for she is if possible More sen 5itiv<. Tie Home is the heaven. Very body ought to have a Home. 01 course the government cannot undertake to furnish Homes for its people but that policy that encourages Heads of poor to procure Little Homes and enables them to Doit is the True policy. Instead of sending old worn out labourers to poor houses As paupers the policy should be to support them in Little Homes of their own or that they might regard As their own. Of course this could t apply to All cases and the general poor House could t be dispensed with for bad As it is it is better than no Charit but it would apply to Many and would enable Many old couples to Glide Down the Declivity into the unknown abyss in comparative Comfort and Content. And it is a question if our pauper houses Are not costing More than would be the Cost of supporting the poor at their own Homes or the of their relatives or friends. Quot bit the True policy is to enable the labourers to help themselves Duif ipg Lii in 4ays of activity so that those who Are provident at least can get to Gether some Little comforts for their declining years. It is Gratifying to know that under a pretty wholesome governmental policy in the past Many men dependent upon their daily labor alone have been enabled to possess themselves of comfortable Little Homes. The myriad cities and villages that Dot our land furnish Gratifying evidences of this fact. Still the destitution and utter wretchedness existing is enough to Appal the heart of the philanthropist. Walk upon the streets arid the Pale Haggard visage sunken anxious Eye and attenuated Frame meet you at every turn. Help is needed Here. These signs of distress and destitution. Though mute yet speak with trumpet tongues to the ear attuned to pity. Too Little attention is paid by statesmen to the distresses and wants of the poor. If War comes who has to do the fighting ? if a ship or a Bridge or a railway is to be built who has to do the work the poor or comparatively poor men. The Rich can buy immunity from the of Battle and the rugged burdens of i it peaceful life. Hence we must respect the sturdy Arm and the Brave heart of the worker in every walk. That policy which plays into the willing hand of Industry is the True policy and that policy does t consist in the cutting of wages to the pauper Standard and the stopping of the hum of wheels. What was being shown in the article which alarmed the news was that under the general policy of our government for a number of years past the country has prospered and the condition of the worker has improved. That there Are Iner qualities and unwise features in the Tariff is probable but the country a a Dontig so Well that a sweeping change of policy is but . The cry that we arc in a bad Quot Way and Rushing on to ruin is shown to be false by the appearance of Well clothed. Well fed. And Well housed Busy and Happy people on every hand us Auger the modicum of distress that is inseparable from a state of civilization to illustrate we take from an Exchange a statement from a merchant who was doing from Ihsen to 18.50, in reviewing his of ii Bills and books but a quote it Quot Calico that we now pay 6.1 for we then paid 0 Toke for Coffee that then Cost 18 to 20 cents can now be had for then sold from 12 to 15 cents per Yard and now Sells for not higher than 11 cents and that the very Best. All other Staples were then sold in proportion while wages ruled from 40 cents to $1.00 per Day the latter for skilled mechanics. Wheat when it brought >0 cents per Bushel was considered exceedingly High. Corn sold at ten cents per Bushel and eggs could be had for three a Clits per dozen if you could scrape together the Throe cents. Calico was Good enough for anybody and ladies who wont beyond that wore regarded As stuck us it. Wisdom Wrieth aloud. But no Man regards it. Trio knowing congressional Coni Irit Teo Oil Wii Iii suffrage says that she 1 woman to joins and guides the life that is and Loans it for Tho Ctorn Ity and Init mortality that is to be i Quot this is Ini Conant if True. The wonder is How a Longn ssi onal comic Mittoo found out that a a life of of equity and immortality is to to Congress can Tell us very Little of a positive chars ctr that relates to Gove mental matters but Here it committo is Able to give Assurance of a life to Home and that it is woman s Mission of form us for it it has been Given out that the mis Aion of the ministers and priests was to train and guide the life that is and form it and so Forth Tor the life that is to be. But Here to have a grave official report informing us that woman is the party that has charge of this guiding and forming and this is urged As a argument or statement of fact rather that is fatal to her a.spiration8 if site has any for the ballot thus does your modern statesman beat about the Bush when brought face to face Kwh a principle founded in right As Obj Potts and inherent As the right to Bratli \ al i Quot "11 i ii i Quot a i Rev. Doctor of souls Mabie of the first Baptist Church of this City has astonished his sheep by tendering his resignation. His excuse is ill health and a Call to a better Field at Belleville Illinois. Indianapolis is getting to be poor pasture ground for the doctor pastors. The sheep mix up so with the goats that the shepherds can t Corr a them i or the shearing. , orthodoxy is not without its imitators in the Liberal ranks. The divisions jealousies and rivalries which were inaugurated almost As soon As an attempt at organization was made show that orthodox example had impressed its baneful spirit upon those who fancied themielve6 wholly emancipated from its tar Aldom. Revenge hate persecution and cruelty Are marked characteristics of the Christian god and you can t expect the Christian to be better than his god. Many of the worst Wais that have cursed the rate have been waged by the Christian god. Disputes about the meaning of his word Quot have Cost the world tears and blood and treasures pretty constantly for about eighteen Hundred years. Shall unbelievers infidels imitate this example Are they going to regale the world upon the spectacle of a class claiming to be rationalists and yet wrangling amongst ? this has been carried far enough. The efforts that have been made in times past by prominent liberals to injure and bring into disrepute other prominent liberals have exhibited too much Quot of the Christian spirit to come feud themselves to level headed infidels. A bad Man should t be glossed Over and it is the Fate of most Reform movements to have unwise men selfish men. Shallow men and hypocritical men jumping into the Van As . Such people Wisdom wherever they find it. Sometimes they kill the movement but Jnore frequently they kill themselves and they can generally be left to do this latter limed killing with a feeling Akin to Confidence that they will do it better for themselves than anybody Cau do it for them we have tried to shape a policy that would Lead to peace in the infidel family. Differences of opinions there must be but these should t be angrily discussed. While Candor and honesty prevail men can be friends and yet differ in opinion Andor and honesty infidel should employ in thir dealings ind relations with one another and the everybody for that matter. This action will generally insure relations. We must cultivate generous and practical relations amongst ourselves or the lord s Good people will begin to think they really toll the truth when they affirm that we Are no better than they if As Good. We must set them an example of Amity and Good Fellowship. We see now where we have acted hastily and unwisely where we have Given rein to the remnant of the Christian spirit still to Naining in us. And which ii oeds uprooting Leeason and Charity must guide us and Quot not wrong doing and revenge. The True exponents of our principles must to defended and sustained not Traduce and ii Siml and we must demonstrate hat people arc better without the crowds acid dogmas and expensive Njma Chicory of the Christian religion than they arc with it.

Quot and so Tho committee regard this a a Christi jul system Quot quite sufficient without woman suffrage. If we did t have the Christian might have Tho woman suf Nige but having the Bies Singa of the i system we should not grasp Aiter those of the suffrage. This is a weighty argument against woman suffrage but the average Congressi tial commits does t always achieve applause or Fame through its reports. Wood Rev.

The Puzzle. In the teaching of children nothing so pernicious As a Puzzle. Every made to a child should be Clear and distinct. The mind should not be perplexed. Every proposition that confuses the child is a physical damage to the forming brain. Of. All the senseless and inexcusable tortures that were Ever inflicted upon the minds of children the silly Puzzle is the most senseless and inexcusable. The idea originated perhaps in the orthodox brain. The Trinity being a pious unsolvable incomprehensible Puzzle for the adult christians smaller and easier ones were deemed wholesome for the children of the pious. Hence religious tracts and papers for children abound in puzzles any one of these abominable brain Rackers when at last solved is invariably found to impart not a particle of useful knowledge the name of some Saint perhaps or John Wesley or Jonah swallowing the whale the hours of sweat and worry Over them were better spent in romping in the open air or in learning the multiplication table or some simple fact in history or chemistry or Treolo by. Nothing is More heartless and cruel than to perplex the mind of a child and when this is done under the senseless idea of amusement or to exercise the mind the crime puts on u still More infamous aspect. The first thing every Parent should do on the receipt of papers with puzzles in them is to tear them out and put them in the fire. The world is full enough of things that perplex and Puzzle the juvenile brain without the creation of artificial ones whose solution imparts no useful information or valuable lesson. No forming brain should be re Jui Rcd to worry Over what it cannot comprehend without intense Effort not even for a useful an 1 educational Porpose much less for the contemptible purpose of perplexity itself. Brother Ennis of tray Wilgar ind., has sent to the infidel Lair a Superb group of pictures of himself wife and four Little infidel children. They compose a healthy and Happy looking family. The artistic brother also sent along a piece of Workma Tiship that is a pleasing curiosity.

Thoughtful passenger a and Tho though Here for Job Mintini i yes Hie i rinds on and Bobed Aud acid. Lithographer. Oxalic acid we obtain mostly from Wood sorrel and the sorrel tree but it is contained in Many other substances. It is manufactured in Large quantities from heated sawdust in connection Avith hydrate of potassium Etc. Oxalic acid is in colourless and odourless crystals with a Strong sour taste. It is soluble very slowly in eight parts of cold water to one part of oxalic acid but is easily soluble in hot water. It is very poisonous and Many cases of poisoning have already occurred in lithographic establishments by mistake when regular or common Salt should have been used. It is a sure remedy when not too late to give the person who has swallowed oxalic acid Large draughts of water mixed with White Chalk. Oxalic acid is used for preparing stones for engraving and is greatly preferable before etching with nitric acid when machine ruling is to be applied on an engraving. It Only requires a Little More weight on the Diamond. As the oxalic acid produces a layer oti the surface of the Stone which the Diamond has to Cut through otherwise All lines would not have the necessary strength and would look broken but when the Diamond has Cut through the layer the lines will print sharper and More distinctly than in the etching with nitric acid. It also prevents scratches on the Stone from taking Ink. Oxalic acid is also used for keeping the edges of the Stone clean in the steam press. A solution of ten parts of dissolved gum arabic. One part of oxalic acid and one part of phosphoric acid is the Best preparation for stopping out lights and correcting errors on engraving stones. This acid is not effervescent and does not spread out As nitric or Muri Atic acid does. It is also the Best acid to take off any dirt or scratches from old engravings but very great care must to taken that no work is touched that is to remain on the Stone for where the oxalic acid is once applied the Ink will not easily take hold again. Therefore it shows what is a Good remedy for one thing is a very dangerous thing for another. Yes it does look that. Way Fla Fariar in May 11, 84. Or. Monroe How it does worry those Quot moral agents Quot the priests to see liberalism gaining ground and about to close in on them. So Long have they lived at the Quot top of the pot Quot off the honest toil of their credulous hell scared dupes that it will be hard indeed for Theiu now to have to work for their living.
