Oh laud of winter and of gloom, Of singing bird, and moaning pine, Tbe golden lights, tby tender gloom, Thy vales and mountains all are mine ! Tny holy loves of other years With beck'ning hand toward me lean, And whisper through their falling tears, "Lord, keep my memory greeu." Dear memory ! whose unclouded gaze Cau peure-i the darkest wilds of spaee I see her morning watchfire blaze, I feel her breeze fan my face; I would not give the light she flings Across my future landscape scene For all the pomp and power of I-.ings "Lord, keep my memory green."

THE CONVICT'S DAUGHTER In the year ISO— John Ilarlow started for San Francisco, Cal , on a tour of recreation from a long course of legal study. Nothing of special note occurred to relieve the tedious ness of his journey, be arrived at his destination much shattered and fa tigued. Immedia'e rtst was needed, so he souifht a boarding-house in a dull, quiet part of the city, and for some days enjoyed the seclusion and rest he so much stood in teed of. His meals were brought to his room, and therefore he had no opportunity to make the acquaintance of his fellow boarders. The house was run by a matronly looking woman named Went worth, whose only weakness seemed to be her voluble tongue. However, she atoned somewhat for this iu the excellent quality of her menu, and as thi3 is the paramount object sought for in a bcarding-house, whatever foibles she possessed in the eyes of her tenants were graciously overlooked. Htr daughter, a comely young girl of seventeen years, assisted her in the household duties and in the evening usually entertained the house with pleasing music on the piano. One evening as Harlow was enjoying a fragrant Havana in his room, and moving retrospectively over old scenes and faces, the soft plaintive strains of a delicate but musical voice seemed to emanate from the parlor below. There was something un natural in the tone of the voice that told him he had never heard it there before. The air spoke volumes of sadness and breathed such pathos and distress that he turned involuntarily in his chair, and noticing in the mir ror at the other side of the room what a change it had wrought in his fea tures, he jumped up suddenly and was about to shut out the voice from his hearing, when it suddenly stop ped. The music had piqued his curi osity. He would know the owner of that voice. Tbe cbatting of two women below told him that some lady friend of Bertha—Mrs. Wentworth's daughter —was probably paying her a friendly visit. He dressed himself hastily and repaired to the parlor, where, under the pretext of wishiug to be called early iu the morning, he bad tbe op portunity of seeing Bertha. She seemed pleased to be ot service to him. The Rubicon passed, he was soon engaged in delectable conversa tion with Cora Lane, to whom he had bcon introduced by Bertha. Of all fair faces he bad ever seen her'B was the fairest. There was an air of melancholy sufl'using the entire features that seemed in keeping with the sad blue eyes the expression of which completely charmed him. Someting indefinable in her sweet, gentle manner, felt its way deeply into his breast and caused it to beat with rapture. He could have sat for hours and contemplated her lovely face, so great was bis infatuation. Tbat night as he lay on his couch, with the picture of the fair face en grossing his every thought, he felt, he knew, that Cora Lane was the only woman he would ever love. It was late the next morning when he arose, despite the fact that Bertha had done his bidding. His first impulse was to rush to her and learn all she knew about Cora, but better judgment prevailed, lie concluded to ascertain through quiet inquiries all he could about his new found love. Bertha, however, anticipated him. She saw, with a woman's quickness, the profound ad miration ou his visage as he sat gaz ing at her friend the night previous, and intuitively surmising that he wished to know something of her friend, told him of her own accord all that she knew. "Cora was employed a.sa saleslady in a millinery establishment She was twenty years old, was supposed to be an orphan, and came originally from the East." This was all Bertha knew of her although she dtvelt eloquently on her amiable manners and goodness of heart. Every night for two weeks Harlow saw bis love safely home, but not a3 an escort. He could not nerve him self to meet those great blue eves, for he felt that th.j venture would lead him to a passionate avowal of the love that wa3 surging against his heart like a vast billow. No, he must strive to beat down the vehement at tachment that was almost consuming him and let time shape his fortunes. Harlow had passed two evenings at tho house of Cora, and each time he set his eyes on ber,some new-born charm revealed itself to his enamored vision. A certain air of constant re serve in her demeanor awed down all efforts on his part to divulge the dic tates of bis heart. If the mellow gaze that wreathed ber face at time conveyed to his mind tbe looks of re ciprocal affection. Its relaxation into a moody, apathetic stare dispelled the felicitous thought. Still, his manner and conversation appeared to please and entertain her, aud at times she grew eloquent in her responses. One gentle mooulight evening, when the stars studded tha vaulted heavens with unwonted brilliancy and bracing breezes stole softly through the trees and flowers, bring ing with them the inyigorating influ ences of a balmy evening in May, Harlow unbosomed his heart to her. I He told her in impassioned tones of l his adoration; how life without her J would be a dismal blank; how he had watched ber night after night, and i felt happy to know that he was close |to the woman whom he loved; bow eagerly he had looked forward to the 1 time when he could tell her all. She listened demurely, with downcast eyes, but uttered not a word. That she did not remonstrate with him reconciled him to the belief that the j affeetioa was mutual. At last she spoke aud her melodious voice thrill ed him with delight. I She told him she dearly loved him, i loved him for his kindness to her; ! that ever since she first saw him his j image was indissolubly mingled with 1 her day dreams; every moment in his presence seemed an hour of happiness to ber. These endearing words threw off the restraint he had sustained, aud in the ardency of his fondness he drew her to bis side and repeatedly kissed the pale, upturned lips. ' Cora, you will be my wife," he said, looking down upon her with un speakable joy, as if the answer he sought was already his. She drew herself gently from his embrace and the ga?e in her lovely eyes appeared -to pass over him to space beyond. She spoke as if in a dream. "That never can be," she uttered, at the same time throwing her arms about his neck and sobbing bitterly, as if in deep anguish To be refused by a woman who had just avowed herself iu love seemed a strange anomaly to him. A hun dred conjectures filled his brain at that moment. Was her heart pre-oc cupied? Was there a man on earth who loved Cora Lane more thau he did? Why could she not be his wife? "Don't ask me why, John. It is better for us if we see each other no more. Forgive me if I make you un happy, but it really can never be; to be your wife would only bring sor row and distress to our home." Her enigmatical words puzzled him. "Cora, dearest, I will forgive every thing. We will start life anew; blot the past from our sight; only say you will be mine." She strove to answer, but the pro found anguish in her bosom mocked all efforts to scorn. The look of melan choly sadness that overspread her en tire features, told Harlow that his love was hopeless. When he left that night with the arrow of deep disappointment sunk deep into his breast, she exacted a vow from him never again to broach the subject of matrimony; but he left her with the sorry assurance that she loved him better than any one on earth. For a week Harlow never left his room. His sprightly, gay spirits vanished, aud long fits of dejection supervened. If Bertha suspected the cause of the change in his appearance she never betrayed it. He pleaded an at tack of malaria, to which he said he was a victim; this was all be offered in explanation of his moodiness. At the end of his hermitage a long ing desire to see his love again reas serted itself. He tore himself from his seclusion and went to her house. When he entered to his bewildered consteration he learned she had left the city. A note was banded him by the lady of the house, which she gave him at Cora's request. He trembling ly tore open the envelope. The note read as follows: "In three years. CORA." Every one of those words seemed as if written in fire. He was mysti fied beyond reason. The thought, "Was she trifling with his affec tions?" took tho place of all other con siderations. But where was tbe mo tive? The more he cogitated over the short note the more he clothed it with an occult meaning. He left tbe house, repaired to his room, and in the wreck of his life's happiness wept poignant tears of woe. The Occident had no more charms for him; he determined to return East in the course of a fortnight. He left San Francisco an altered man and returned to his home, but the thought of Cora, ever present in his mind, drew a view of sadness over his whole life. Some months afterward he finished his law studies and entered upon bis chosen pro fession. At the end of three years his life was just as devoid of happinoss a3 the day when Cora told him it could never be. lie resolved at last to once again visit the West aud learn, it possible, her whereabouts. When he arrived at San Francisco he called at lha house whero be had last seen her; she had never been heard from, and as far as the good lady could enlighten hitn she might be dead, Mrs. Wentworth and her daughter told the samo despairing story—she had almo3t dropped from tbeir memory. The one great o!\ject of life now wu3 to find bar and learn from her own lips the meaning of those odd words: "In three years." If he failed—alas! he dared not contemplate the consequences. Find her he would, if it took years of con stant search. Such is the love of some men, who in their constancy sacrifice years of happiness for the sake of one mortal. Not a stone was left unturned in his untiring search for hear, but to no avail. No one could be found to give him ono ray of hope as regards her whereabouts. But he found her at last—found her a new even lovelier than be had ever seen her. What strange, impelling influence led him to visit Sau Quetin he will never know. Was it a mere whim, a fancy, or was it the hand of fato striving to make amends fur pa3t dis courtesies? San Quetin is a sma'l town, situat ed on the bay of San Fraucisco. It took him but a short time to ascertain that there was uothing there to inter est his attention. But stay—the State's prison is located iu this small village. Another trair did not arrive for two hours; why not pass the time there? It was the extravagant desire ol a morbid temperament. He had no idea that the sights there would in terest him any more than the com monplace realities of the village itself. He repaired to the prison. Tbe warden was very kind and urbane he could go through the prison if he so desired. An usher who escorted him through the different departments explained every point iu the work ings of the place, but he listened in differently; he felt that not one of the BUTLER, PA.. FRIDAY, JUNE IT, 18»7 hardened criminal-? he passed by could be more ehopfallen than be. In going out he hed to pass by a waiting rcom. He casually looked through a hole in tbe panel of the door that opened into that room In that room a sight met his jraze the effect of which almost froza his blood. Was it Cora's face he saw, or was it the phantom of bis love? To assure himself he peered again; the truth was very patent. Her arms were entwined around a tall, manly form, but he could not see the face, as the back was turned towards him. The usher, noticing his wild fixed gaze, drew him to one side and asked him if he was sick. A glass of water was all be desir ed, as he sat or rather fell into a chair. He told the man that it was an at tack of the vertigo; it would soon be oyer. He felt as though his reason was leaving him; strange phantasies shot through his brain. That Cora loved another, and that person a convicted felon, was his first deduction. The terrible truth sank into his soul like a poisoned shaft. A craving for revenge on the man he had just seen all but controlled him. That man should never live to en joy tbe happiness tbat should bs his. The usher iu his dismay was about to shout for help, thinking he was caged with a madman, when Harlow suddenly sprang to his side and hoarsely whisptred:— "Who is that man in the other room?" The latter seeing that bis compan ion had subsided somewhat in wild ness, deigned to reply. It was John Lane, who was about to be discharged from prison. He bad been convicted of forgery and had served a fifteen years' sentence. The woman was his daughter. This was all he knew. The sudden revulsion in Harlow's feelings stunned him; he reeled and would have fallen bad not the usher caught him in time; he slipped a gold coin into the hands of the usher and left the prison. He sought a tree near by, whose large drooping branches afforded a good ensconcement, and throwing hitr-self on the green grasses, began to ruminate over the exciting circum stances which bad just taken place. Tbat was indeed one of the happiest moments of his life. His heart never beat so lightly before. The words, "noble, grand girl" es caped his lips in the delirium of his delight. Ab! now he kne%v the rea son of her magnanimous sacrifice; of her refusal to accept the band of the man she loved. The filial love was paramount to all other affections. Why had she not told him all? So great was his love he could have for given everything. lie lay on the cool grass for some time, turning over future plans, but was at last roused from his blissful thoughts by the approaching train which was to bear him and his love back to San Francisco. He watched the devoted couple un til they boared the train, and then took a seat himself in the rear coach. How different was the journey back. Every object along the road sparkled like a dazzling gem; every plot of grass disclosed some new-born charm; the very air seemed to breathe hap piness, John Harlow's new life be gan when he boarded the train that afternoon. For reasous better known to himself he did not see Cora Lane for two weeks after tbe prison epi sode. He allowed tho excitement of the past few weeks to completely die out before he ventured to see her. Then he found her and reiterated his undy ing aflc-ction. Tbey were soon mar ried and returned to the East, but the father remained in San Francisco, where for many years he led a good, useful life, and fully expiated his past misdeeds. John buried the se cret of his wife deep in his noble heart, as regards that his lips were forever fcileut Often as he sits and gazes into her largo liquid eyes he wonders if she reads bis thoughts, but as he never speaks of the reason why for three long years she avoided the man she loved, he rests content ed that his secret is unknown to her. Henry George's Land Theory The fundamental doctrine of Mr. George, which a correspondent asks ns to state and explain, is the notion that no man has or can acquire a riqbt to the ownership of land. His theory is that the value of the land is not created by man's labor, and therefore cannot be properly appro priated by individuals. The truth is that the part of the value of land which is the result of man's labor is iufinitely the greater part, and is ab solutely inseparable from the value, if there ever was any, existing in the laud independently of such labor. Name a tract of ground anywhere and examine its history closely, and it will be found that its value has been created by the building of roads, tbe creation of means of reaching it and transporting products from it, by the clearing, fencing ar.d other im provements ol that and adjacent lands, by the growth of villages, towns and cities more or less near tbe laud in question, by tbe building of stores aud churches, railroads, canals or turnpikes, and, in a word, by all the progress of civilization from the earliest settlement of that region to this day. As a rule, the laud itself has no value which is not the result of human industrv. The value thus created must be long to somebody, and be capable of transmission from one person to an other. This is necessary to the wel fare of civilized society, because the creation of such values, by the im provement of lauds and the construc tion of means of communication, would be arrested if the laud were not the property of individuals. The infinitely larger porportiou of value whiob is created by man's labor must be individually owned, that being necessary to the progress of society. The infinitely smaller proportion not so created, if any such value exists, must therefore be also individually owned, because its separation from the other aud far greater is impracti cable. Nor is it practicable even to determine whether land has or would have hud any value apart from the re sult of human improvements and hu man labor.—New York Tribune. Sold Him too Cheap. "What crime did Joseph's brothers commit in selling him?" All the pupils in chorus: "They sold him too cheap." Lutheran General Synod OMAIIA, XKII , June 10. —In the Lutheran General Synod to-day a proposition was made to suggest to the trustees of the Wittenburg Col lege, Ohio, to remove tbe theological department to Chicago. This caused considerable discussion. The Itev. E. Iv Bell said it would be impossi ble to remove Wittenburg Seminary from Springfield, O In Chicago there was no English Lutheran strength, while iu Springfield there were strong churches and excellent preachers among tbe Lutherans. This is necessary to produce Luther an preachers. It would be better to establish a seminary in Oaiaha rath er than in Chicago. Toe East will not always have the best institutions of learning. The centre of culture will move westward. Tbe recom mendation was, by a vote of the Synod, stricken out of the report. The board wa3 authorized to raise SSOO per year for the payment of the expenses incident to the preliminary work of establishing a college. I>r. Rhodes offered resolutions setting forth the conviction of the General Assembly that the time has come for the establishment of a college iu the West After a lew words by Dr Rhodes in advocacy of the resolutions they were unanimously adopted. Rev. J. D. Severingbaui read the report of the condition and the work of the recently established German Theological Seminary at Chicago, 111. During the past two years this insti tution has sent out ten young men into the ministry. The receipts of the seminary treasurv were sl,- 343.93. Rev. Dr. Valentine presented the report, of the Committee on Common Order of Service, which was contin ued from the last convention at IDir risburg in 1885. The report stated that the report of the committee was completed, and would be published in a few weeks. A common order of worship lor all English Lutheran churches in this country has been adopted by all English general bodies of the Lutheran Church. The orders adopted do not include the orders for ministerial acts, but the United Synod and General Council have taken steps for the preparation of such orders. On motion af the Ilev. Sylvanus Stall the privilege of the floor was grauted to Rev. F. W. Conrad, I). D , who addressed the Synod on the subject of common order of service. The report was accepted and the committee continued with instruc tions to co-operate with other mem bers of the joint committee in secur ing a preparation of orders in minis terial and also an authorized transla tion of the Augsberg Confession and Lutheran Small Catechism. The Hymn Book Publishing Committee was authorized to publish in all fu ture editions of the Book of Worship this common order of services and to publish iu cheap form a separate edi tion of the order of service for use of those congregations which have in use the books containing the old or der of service, which is now by this order superseded. The committee was also authorized to publish an edi tion injthe German and Scandinavian language. A report answering the inquiries of the Hymn-Book Publishing commit tee was discussed by the Rev. Dr. Baugher, Rev. Dr. Billheimer and Mr. J. W. Rice. These inquiries arose by reason of the fact that a re cent edition of the Sunday school hymn book contained tbe Apostles' Creed with a different punctuation from that found in the Book of Wor ship. An amicable difference of opin ion existed betweeu the Hymn Book Committee aud the Sunday School Hymn Book Committee and they de sired the Synod to define tho author ity of the standing committee. The decision was that all the publications concerning the doctrinal teachings of the Church must be approved by the General Synod. The Hymn Book Publishing Committee was declared to have no authority to amend the subject-matter prepared by auy other standing committee until so ordered by the General Synod. The proposition from the L T nited Synod of the South asking for tbe appointment of a committee to act with a similar committee on their part to secure not only a common ser vice but a common hymn book was offered to the standing committee on a common order of service. Rev. E S. Wolf read the report of the Committee ou the Re-establish ment of an Office of Deaconess, and declared that this office has the ap proval of the early Church in which deaconess exercised functions of this office. The committee did not see tbeir way clear to authorize its imme diate restoration in churches, but they recommended a continued investiga tion of the subject, which should be reported upon again at the next con vention. The report wa3 adopted, and the committee continued with the addition of liev. i-J 11. Harpster, of Canton, O. Rev. Dr. Baugher presented a res olution that the Central Synod, hav ing no organ for the publication of its views except its own official minutes, wishes it distinctly understood that for whatever else is published by ed itors the contributors aud individual writers alone are responsible. The resolutions appended to tbe Home Mission report which had not previ ously been acted upon were consider ed.

After traveling ten miles L I v.v came to what is CDK'D the Yellow Rocks, a cliff with a t'aca over o. j hundred feet high, as straight and I smooth as if cut with a chisel, i At the base is an opening where a number of people can s;nud ' and where t rie different kinds of ROCK cau be seen; all yellow us gold and I hanging in rocks, or clusters, as K ; were, and as easy cut as crayon. 1 | broke a few pieces from a cluster, | which I shall take with me when 1 | return to Pa. At this opening is a j spring where deer come to drink, and ! where tracks were sufficient to tell us that they were not far away. The next curiosity is the Auger Rocks, an opening in the biuff well deserving the name, in v.hicti are rocks exactly the SHAPE of augers, from thirty to forty feet in height Here we left our ponies and trav eled fourteen miles east, seeing more sights than I have time tj explain At the end of this journey, we came to the northern limit of the cot ton belt, and tho noted rocks called Curiosity Bluff. Iu this Bluff there is an opening called the Hotel, where there are chairs, stands, and almost all kinds of stone furniture. After finishing our fishiog and hunting expedition we returned to Prairie Grove, where the reaper can be heard and the harvest is at hand. Oa the 30th day of May I attend ed the decorating of the soldiers .'raves at Fayetteville, where I bad the pleasure of listening to Col. Parker, Judge of the U. S. Court of Ft. Smith, Ark , who hr.s sentenced more men to be hung than any Judge in the United States. I was told by old citizens of Fayetteville that the crowd was the largest ever known be in the town since the war, and the battle of Prairie Grove, 18fi2. At 3 o'clock p. M , I took tho train for Pierce City, Mo., from there to Ft. Kan., from Ft. Scott to Kansas City. After spending a short time on the W ire Cable street cars viewing the city, I took my departure for the Sunflower State, or the State of wealth, health and happiness; where the poor are made rich, and where farmers do not raise little five oere fields of corn, but were we seo from 40 to 200 acres in one field. At the present time Osage county, K m., is having very little rain, but dry weather cannot check the crops in the garden spot of America. Yesterday I was iu the south-western part of the county, to-day, June 3, [ went to the south-eastern corner, and I find it all verv near the same. The prairies are covered with all kinds of flowers, and tbe cattle are feeding by the hundreds. To those coming west I would say give the Sunflower (Kansas) State a a trial. Topeka is increasing at Uk rate of 1000 a month, Lyndon will have the Kansas City R. 11. through bet* town in a short time. Reader, I will close for the- present by stating that the wind in Kansas will not hold a hat to the side of a building all day. Such an assertion is incorrect. I expect to visit the greatest pork market iu the U. S. before returning to Pa. Thanking you for your kinduess, I remain E L. ENGLISH. Raising Pork Cheaply. * We need more grass aud clover, and less corn, upon which to make pork. More grass and clover means cheaper growth and l«ss disease. Just as the great corn and pork pro ducing lands have been developed, has swine disease sprung up aud iu creassd, because our swine are given a monotonous diet of dry oily food. Gras3 and clover are the foods of na ture, and the swine harvest them. They require little preparation of the ground for them, and uo cultiva tion. When pastured they build up, rather than exhaust, the land ; and it cannot be successfully disputed that they are essential factors iu the pro duction of the cheapest pork. Let the pigs farrowed in the spring be put on grass and clover as soon as t.hey are fit to be grazed, and?kept on them as long as they are palatable, aud the result will be pig not fat, but in good condition and thrifty, that until fall has large, healthy bones and muscle and a vigorous appetite for corn. And then it may be fed corn largely, for this will put fat ou the large frame the pasture has made, and tho hog ia vigorous enough to digest the corn well; and if the hog is fatted rapidly ami mar keted as soon ns fully fat, it is the cheapest pork that can be made—the cheapest, not counting loss from dis ease. But swine plague rarely in vades the pasture; its favorite place of appearance is in the small lot, paved with cobs and manure. The hog summered ou grass and clover is so that it rarely sickens when being fattened ou corn largely, but also other food, and in clean quar ters with pure water.— American Agriculturist. An Assessor's Wonderful Logic. From tho Trenton Emporium.] There is a certain township asses sor who valued a tract of ten acres for taxation at §I,OOO. The v.iiua ti->N had not been changed for A score of years. At length ono acre was sold to a stranger for SI,OOO. TH following year the assessor valu "1 the single acre at £I,OOO and the nine acrces which remained- in the original holder's posess'UN were valued a §ooo. The assessor claimed that the one-acre plot having been sol 1 for til, ooo he was required to value it UT that sum, but that the nine-acre plot having been diminished by one tenth should be valued at one-tenth less. This seems to be about the kind of reasoning used by lUJ,ny of the rural assessors. It Was Tough Work. "It's SIOO in your pock-.'t," whis pered the defendant's lawyer to the juror, "if you can bring out a verdict of manslaughter in the second de gree." Such proved to be the ver.lict, and the lawyer thanked tho juror warmly as be paid him the money. "Yes," said the juror, "it was tough work, but 1 got there after a while.

The decision reached recently by the General Assembly of the United Presbyterians finally permitting the use of musical instruments in worship ' IV,is an ecclesiastical struggle exist* ing o\er the past seven years and begun stiil earlier in the Church. The fyiit of the Scotch secession movement iu 1733, t'ue Associate Presbyterians, as they were first known,organized their first presbytery in America in 1753; but it was not until 1X53 that the scattered bodies f Steeders in the United States were i might together in the Church -ir:ce known as the United Presbyte . iThis body, sprung from one of the sternest and most uncomprom ising of the many protests made by Scotchmen iu the. iasc three centuries ngainst the spirit, has preserved, as is apt to be the case with small nou-con t rming bodies, to an unusual degree the minute and precise poiuts of dif h reuce on which the original rupture we.s based, led by men like the Krskines, whose sincerity was as un qu -tioned as their usefulness in pre serving the spirit of evangelical truth. Chief among these lesser points was the exclusion of all instruments of music on the ground that their use was not ordained in the New Testa meat. In 1881, the long struggle of the younger members of the Church against this rule ended in submitting an "overture" to the presbyteries on the subject. The vote was a close oae, G2o| favoring repeal and voiing to continue the exclusion of the organ. As the entire number of voters in the presbyteries was 1,240, the nice legal question arose whether a majority bad voted iu favor of the repeal of the restriction. The Gen eral Assembly in 18S2 decided that it had; but instead of directly recom mending the use of organs, it limited itself to a declaration that they could not be held to be forbidden by the Word of God, and urged no church to introduce instrumental music where any member objected. The subject has gone through many phases in the five years which have passed, and more than one legal opin ion has been obtained on the subject, Judge Agnew. among others, passing oujthe subject came squarely up in the determined attempt of the Synod of lowa and the Presbytery of Keokuk to prohibit the use of an organ in a church in the latter city, and the General Assembly has declined to support the lower bodies in this at tempt. This still leaves the usage of the Church in favor of exclusion; but it also leaves it open for any church to act for itself, and not many years will pass before the worship of the United Presbyterian Church is as similated to other bodies of the same faith, the first step toward a more complete union.— Phil. Press. Origin of Some Political Phrases " Vv" here do ycu go from here?" "I go to my home in Mansfield, where I intend to take a solid week's rest." You are going home to look after your knees, of course?" The Senator laughed heartily. "Do you know," he inquired,"how that expression originated? No! Then I'll tell you. While I was Sec retary of the Treasury I came home to Mansfield for a few days at one time. As soon as I got there, there were an influx ot newspaper corre spondents from all parts. Some of thorn announced that I was getting ready to run for Governor; others that I was working up a boom for the Presidential nomination. One of them came to me and boldly asked what 1 was doing in Ohio. It just harspeued that on that day I had contracted with a man to repair some fences that were in a tumbled down condition. So when the news paper man asked me what I was do ing in Ohio I told Lim that I bad some home to look after my fences. He published what I said, and the expression went everywhere. It was even used on some occasions in the British Parliament. It's funny how these political expressions originate, la some city just before election the Democrats employed an immense number of laborers to lay water pipes. That's what gave rise to the express ion 'laying pipes.' You remember that at one time the Democrats were called Locofocos, During a Demo cratic meeting in New York the par ticipants became so turbulent that it became necessary to extinguish the lights. The participants left in total darkness, pulled out locofocos, as the old fashioned matches were called. That's how that name originated."— Enquirer interview with Senator Sherman.
