ed thut the holders of our securities have al

sured bv a gold standard. Lpon this
statement of facts it would seem but just
and equitable that the six per cent, interest
now paid by the Government should be ap
plied to the reduction of the principal, iu
semi-auuual installments, which in sixteen
years aud eight mouths would liquidate the
entire national debt. Six per ceut. iu gold
would, nt present rates, be equal to nine per
cent, in currency, and equal to the payment
of the debt one'nnd a half times in a frac
tion less than seventeen yeats. Thisi in
connection with the other advantages deriv
ed from their investment, would atl'ord to the
public creditors a fair and liberal compsnsa
tion for the use of their capitul, and with
this they should be satisfied. Tho lessons
of the past admonish the lender thai it is
not well to be over-anxious in exacting from
the borrower rigid compliance with the let-
er of tho bond.'
COMMENTS BY THE TRTUtWE.
Mr. Johnson has probably borrowed money
u his day, und may have done so when his
lebts were so heavy and his prospects so
bad, tl.at his note was not worth half its
face. Let us tupposo him drawn into a diffi
cult law suit; which involved all he was
worth. He applies to a thrifty ueighbor
for $5, 000, being in absolute wunt of that
sum to prosecute his suit, to judgmeut.
The prudent capitalist inquires us to the se
curity, aud is pointed to the estate in litiga
tion. "Yes, but if you lose tho suit, you
will have uo estuto." 'Well," ho respouds,
"if I loso the suit, you must lose the debt;
but if 1 wiu it, I will pay yon double."
Agreed," says tho capitalist; "1 will take
he risk.'" So he borrows the $5,000, aud
with it wins the suit. How much does he
owe? How much oPibt he to pay? Your
auswor decides whether you arc honest or a
So fur, we have admitted tho truth of
Johnson's fundamental assumption; but that
assumption is false. What the uutiou owes
its creditors U precisely what it agreed to pay
them no less, no more. Hut the great muss
of them naid for their bonds the full sum
apecified on their face often more. True,
they paid in greenbacks; but those green
backs had cost them their lull amount in
gold. It was tho Debtor, not the Creditor
interest thut profited by tho depreciation of
our Curreucy. Huudreds of thousands paid
off in greenbacks their mortgage aod other
debts which were contracted when the Cur
rency was at par with Gold paid them oflf
with monev obtained by tho sale of their
products or their labor at prices greatly en
shunced by our curreucy depreciation.

struggling to meet the interest on the mort
gage giveu wh:n they bought their lands
were enublo to wipe out that mortage
by the proceeds of two or three crops
sold during the latter years of the War.
Creditors complained (not unjustly) that they
were thus paid off too easily, aud were ans
wered "Lend your mouey to the Government
and you will be paid your bonds in gold; so
"what are you grumbling at?" They did
lend it not by Millions only, but by Hun
dreds of Millions and thereby was the

Take Cake of Youn Boots and Shoes.
Hoots and shoes nre expensive items
now-nilnys, therefore a word or two of
advice in regard to their perservation
will flot bo Blniss. In the first place, do
not expose your shoes or boots to extreme
heat. It destroys the vitality of the
leather, and renders it liable to crack ntlu
break This is specially tho ense with
those made of patent leather. Wearing
gum over shoes is decidedly detrimental
to leather. The bent And dampness
caused by therrt destroy the life of the
leather shoes over whicli they are worn
Never use blacking or polish thnt contains
varnish. Mnny person ruin their shoes
by using cheap blacking, of whicli vitrol
forms the principal incredient. Vitrol
blacking destroys the oil in tho leather it
used for nny length of time. To obvi
ate this difficulty, shoes that are regularly
polished should be washed once a month
with warm water, and, when nalt dry
a coat of oil aud tallow applied. They
should then be set aside lor a day or two
to dry. Thus treating the upper leather
will rarely crack or break.
A Curious Story. A Uussian wnler in

This is one, whose beginning was in the
reign of Kmperor Paul, and whose end un

Paul's favorite was at oue time a young
French actress, of whom he was madly jeal
ous. Oue evening, at a ball, he noticed that
a young man mimed Labanoff was paying her
a greatdeal of attention. He did not lose
his temper, but, at the end of the ball, gave
orders that Lubanoff should be arrested aud
thrown into the citudeL He only intended
to keep him there a few days "to make him
more serious," after which ho proposed to
reprimand him and to appoint him to an of
fice which had been solicited for him. Leb
anoff, however, was forgotten, and remnined
in prison. "At the deathot icholas, Alex

after his liberation.
