CAPTAIH FLBKGKE made a splendid
speech on national affairs at the meeting
of the Lincoln League, Friday evening.
The meeting was well attended. The time
of meeting was changed to Monday even
ing and the next meeting will be held on
Monday evening a week. January 8 1894.
A new constitution was finally adopted,
»nd it will be printed in pamphlet form
and distributed among the Republicans 01
the county.
A memorial to Congress asking it to de
feat the Wilson bill was presented and
adopted unanimously. This was a beauti
fully written and well prepared paper by
President Brymer; and it has been for.
warded to Hon. Tbos. W. Phillips for
presentation to Congress.
"Feed My Lambs."
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one
o! the least ot these my brethern, ye have
done it unto me.—Matt., XXT.,4O.
It U a strange statement that one can
his Prince a personal service by giving a
loaf of bread to one of the hungry peasants
of His kingdom.
It obliterates the traditional idea of caste
and holds the-rich responsible for the con
dition of the poor.
The powerful are the guardians of the
weak under the sovereignty of God.
If you have enough and to spare—that is
the teaching of Christian philosophy
your surplus is not your own; it belongs to
those whose larders are empty.
The injunction to "feed my lambs never
rumbled more resonantly than now, and
oarer eeemed more like the commanding
thunder of Sinai.
A tidal wave of sympathy and pity is
sweeping over the community and the re
cognition of distress is being followed by a
universal desire to alleviate Its pangs.
GBAXD Master Workman Sovereign, who
has just succeeded Powderly as the head of
the Knights of Labor, has announced him
self as in favor of absolute free trade.
Noting this and the exact opposite position
taken by the Amalgamated Association of
Iron and Steel Workers, the Pittsburg
Timet remarks:
"The protest of the officials of the
Amalgamated Association of Iron and
Steel Workers against the passage of the
Wilson tariff bill is a prompt and conclu
sive answer to the declaration of the new
Grand Master of the Knights of Labor that
protective tariff benefits the rich manufac
turers only and injures the workingmen.
Grand Master Sovereign will have up-hill
work convincing the men who received ad
equate wages for their labor under the Mc-
Kinley bill that they are better off now
without work and starvation staring them
in the lace under the free trade policy of
Democratic administration. The country
will prefer to believe the men who labor
with their hands to those whose only labor
it performed with their jaw*. The day of
the jaw-smith has gone by and the honest
toiler now has the floor, and the ear of the
Watterson Slaughter House.
One of the bright, epigrammatic sayings
of which a Presidential campaign is usually
productive was Mr. Henry Watterson'*
remark early last year that "the Demo
cratic party is marching through a
slaughter house to an open grave." The re
sult of that campain did not seem to ap
prove Mr. Watterson's prophetic ability,
but the events ol this year prove that he
saw a good ways further down the politi
cal lane than those who derided him. At
all events he does not propose to let his
prophecy prove false if he can help it.
He tells in the following extract how be
thinks the Ways and Means Committe <
should have gone to work to construct a
tariff that would carry out tho pledge of
the Democratic party:
It was to kick the whole ship's crew of
rogues and rascals ont of the Ways and
Means Committee-room, to close the win
dows and bar the doors, and to make a
tariff for revenue only, in consonance with
the pledges of the party and the expecta
tion of the voters, ignoring alike the claim
and pretenses of the robf'er barons, and
placing the duties wherever they would
yield most revenue, regardless of pro
taction. Thou, with such a bill—a. bill so
simple a child might understand it—no
schedule—no classifications—no freo list—
but a simple bill embracing items enough
to yield 1.1 <j needful amount to be got
Ull ongh the custom bouse —as far as pos
sible commodities not produced in tbe
United States —tea, coffee and sugar as a
matter of course—then, we sav, Mr. Wil
son could have turned to the Democrats of
the House and exclaimed: "Voto against
this bill at yonr own peril J"
Tbe courage of tbe man who stood in
the water up to his chin aud exclaimed to
Noah as the Ark came sailing by: "GJ ( n
with your 010 scow, this storrn will soon
blow over," was nothing to tho courage
Mr. Watterson displays. Factories may
shut down by tbe hundred, business firss
may go into bankruptcy and hundreds of
thousands of men who have always earned
an honest Hying may be begging for bread
on account of Democratic interference with
the tariff, but Mr. Watterson looks on
calmly with no scruples as to the justness
of tbe policy that bas caused all this dis
tresr, Henry Ward Beecber or.ee said of
the Puritans that, "they were always look
ing up, »nd never looked down unless it
was to find money or find fault " So Mr.
Watterson goes on looking np at tbe vision
of free trade, entirely ignorant of mundane
things, dt'd never looking down unless it
ia to find lault Ucuusc lb'; Democratic
party don't make free trade enough or bring
it onquick enough
But if Mr. Watterson will withdraw him
self for a moment from the contemplation
of his idiosyncrasy and look at things as
they are for a moment he may find cause
for reflection in the following extract from
the Now York Post, an advocate of the
same sort of tariff he wishes to establish
That newspaper said tbe other day: "We
must to-day do what wa have never had
occasion to do before, call attention to the
appalling distress which prevails among
the unemployed poor of this city. Thous
ands on thousands of persons who have
always hitherto earned a decent livelihood
are sinking doan into blank destitution,
from which recovery, with broken health
and spirits, will be difficult." Comment
on such a picture is unnecessary Its
gloom is deep enough to penetrato even
tbe free trade bigotry of Mr Watterson
and those like him and compel them to
atop and contemplate the ruin they havi*
wrought. The Democratic party is evi
dently passing through a slaughter house
and it is dragging an unwilling country
along with it. Philadelphia Pre**.

Washington Notes.
On Friday the report of the minority of
Ways and Means committee wa? made
public. It was prepared by Reed, Dalicil
and other?, who denounce the Wilson bi;l
a* a "cowardly make shifl" and give good
reason? for so saying.
On Saturday the report was issued in
pamplet fojm, and was extensively circu
lated. Usually, a minority report is net
only rarely read extensively, but it has li.-
tle or no influence. In this case a minori
ty report is admitted to have dealt a tre- J
mendons blow against the position of the
majority in its complete expose of the lack
of logic in the policy and conclusions of
that majority. Without particularizing it
mcy be stated, upon the authority of one
of them, that there are several Democratic
Senators who are giving much more respect
and attention to the minority than the ma- j
jority report.
Senator Morgan's investigation of Prcr.- .
dent Cleveland's Hawaiian policy began j
Wednesday in the room of the Senate i
Committee on Foreign Relations, of which
the Alabama Senator is Chairman. At
present there is a promise of a full, free
and fair investigation that will bring to the
surface all of the facts connected with the
Hawaiian policy of the Cleveland adminis
The President concealed from Congress
the most important clrcumetances in his
restoration policy, and it is believed that
Senator Morgan will find some way during
the sittings of his committee to produce
the missing links of evidence and demand,
what is believed by many Congressmen
that the administration contemplated, the
use of force in their attempt to put Queen
Liliuokalani back on her throne.
Education and the Farmer.
At the farmers' institute the other day
the question of how much education was
necessary for a successful farmer was dio
cussed. And it was discussed with that
rational and "lean spirit I hat characterized
all their discussions. Every calling of life
receives nutrition and adornment from
proper education. Mr. Davis, of Grampian,
Clearfield county, thought that as many
boys were ruined by sending them to high
class colleges, where vigor aud activity in
kicking the foot ball wins more glory than
excellence in studies or the capturing of
first prize for oratory at a commencement.
Boys also learn to bo affected, and some
times get "stuck up," and when they come
home they have lost that simple and un
assuming character which is the chief
charm of sterling manhood.
It has been prettily said that "colleges
are places where pebbles a/e polished and
diamonds are dimmed." A college cannot
give a boy an education He must get thai
himself. But it lacilitates his work, and
gives system and order to that which is
likely to be chaotic. It also tends to give
him confidence in himself. In weak minds
this confidence often degenerates into ego
The literal meaning of education is to
lead out or develop the natural faculties of
the brain. A propar education would draw
out and develop tne good characteristics
and stunt and discourage the bad ones.
And when thus considered, no man can
have too much education.
Some industrious statistican has figured
out that ninety-two per cent, of the lead
ing statesmen, professional and business
men of this country, were once farmer
boys. If that be true, and we have no
reason to doubt it, there must be some
thing about farm life that stifles the bad,
and develops the good elements of man's
nature. Perhaps it is this: The farmer
boy learns habits of industry. His limbs
arajnade strong with healthful labor. He
is not afraid ot work, Now, genius has been
defined by some as "love of labor, and by
others as nothing more than"good health."
A farmer boy usually has both. In his
youth he is net corrupted by the contamin
ating influences of the guilded dens of vice
which lure the city boy from the paths of
virtue. Tbe scent of clover blossoms is
more invigorating both to bis moral and
physical health than the fumes of beer and
cigarettes.—Punxsutawney Spirit.
THK new president of Switzerland, re
cently elected, is Emil Frey, who emigrat
ed to this country, and in 1801 was a farm
hand in Illinois. When the war broke out
he enlisted as a private in the Union army,
and faithfully served until the close of
hostilities, having participated in several
of the principal battles, and endured im
prisonment in Libby and otbor Southern
prisons. After the war be returned to
Switzerland, whore bis excellent education
vigorous and useful career as a journalist,
won brought him to the front among the
public men of his conntry, and now be has
received the high honor of election to the
lie Claimed to be in Order.
At the farmers' instituto here last Thurs
day tbe subject under discussion was
"Small Fruits " Mr Terry and others
spoke about tho profits of cultivating rasp
berries, currants, etc , when Mr. Barrett
McGara, of Rochester Mills, arose. He
talked about raspberries and currants a
little bit, but soon wandered into polit eg
and the present administration.
"Politics are not now in order," said
Chairman McCracken. "The subject for
discussion is Small Fruits."
"All right," said tho speaker, and be
started in again, but soon let slip some
thing about the Republicans and Demo
"The gentleman will have to confine
himselfto the question," said the chairman
with emphasis.
"Well, now, Mr. President," replied the
irrepressible Mr. McGara, "I think I am
confining myself strictly to the question.
The subject under discussion is small fruits,
and many people claim that Democracy is
about the smallest fruit we have just now "
There was a general laugh, but the
speaker was compelled to suspend bis re
marks.—Punxsutawney Spirit.

The Indiana County Election Cases. j
The Indiana, Pa.. Messenger make J the |
following note of the "political cases' | 1
which were on the trial list of that county j :
for week before last.
John W. Book?, who was defeated for | :
the Republican nomination for Sheriff last, (
May, and who, a few weeks later, became (
an ' independent" candidate for that office. ,
during the progress of his campaign work- |
ed himself and some of his friend- into an .
overwhelming heat. Books alleged that
his defeat *a- owing to bribery and the ,
circulation of libelous circulars. The cir I
colars containing the alleged libel included ]
a *tatenient in regard to the negotiation'
of certain mortgages taken up by a gentle
nun named Campbell, all which we
average reader is familiar with. lor cir
culating this alleged libel Books had ar
rested and put under bonds four gentle
men name', respectively Lewis. Smith,
Campbell and Simpson Books u lso caus
ed the arrest of Brace Wissinger, of Wash
ington twp , who he claimed had been
guilty of bribery about the time of the
i Republican primary election. All these
cases were set down for trial on Thursday
|of last week. Judge White, for reasons of
hi* own, did not sit as trial Judge, but
procured the services of Judge Greer, of
Batler. When the cases were called tor
trial, Lewis asked for a continuance be
cause of the enforced absence of a material
witness. The case was continued. Then
Books asked that his cases against Simp
son, Smith and Campbell be continued,
giving as a reason that he had no attorney,
the counsel he had retained and who had
prepared bis cases having died. We may
here remark, parenthetically, that Books
lawyer was John R. Wilson, Esq., who
died on the 15th of October, just two
months prior to the time when the cases
were .«et for trial, thu3 giving him ample
time if h6 had been so disposed, to have
employed other counsel; and in any event,
since Books was prosecutor, he had the
District Attorney, whose duty it is to try
ca«es for the Commonwealth. Judge
Greer permitted the cases t<j go over until
Friday when again the defendants an
nealed their readiness for trial and urged
up r. the Court their earnest de-ire to have
tL ■ cases disposed of. Finding the Court
still reluctant to hear the cases,the lawyers
for the defense then assailed the indict
ments and moved that they be quashed on
the grounds that they were defective The
Court granted the motion and the indict
ments were quashed. Then came the case
of Simpson vs Books. This is the so-called
'•gamblingcase." Simpson, the prosecutor,
was ready for trial, but again Books set up
the plea that he had no couneel, and was
not ready for trial, and the Judge continu
ed the case. .
Books and his handful of adherents, have
beed loud, persistent and clamorous about
how they were going to "go for and "do
up" a lot of people, and the arrests detail
ed above followed as a consequence. And
now we have the plea of the "baby act
when the opportunity c >mes to carry out
the wild threats so treely made. erily

Paralyzed by Suspense,
There are 80,000 bushels of wheat in the
grain elevators of this country awaiting
buyers. The price is the lowest ever known
The New York banks have $200,000,000
hard cash lying idle in their vaults. Tl.ey
offer it to borrowers at the lowest rates
ever quoted. The conditions are present
for great industrial activity. Why then
does the present stagnation exist T
The one sufficient explanation is tariff
tinkering. Who is going to lay in a stock
of any kind when tariff changes may bring
down values ' The business of the coun -
try will be done on a hand-to mouth basis
until tariff revision is finished. Existing
industries will be carried on only to fill
current orders. These orders will be as
small as possible. The situation is just the
reverse of what it would be were the pros
pective tariff changes protective. Then
the possibilities of increased duties would
stimulate present production and the laying
in of stock. But with the prospect of lower
duties and lower prices, every need that
can be postponed will be postponed. En
terprise stands still and waits to know
wha*. the business conditions are going to
be. Whatever the Democratic party in
tends to do about the tariff bad best be
done quickly. There is nothing so harm
ful as the present suspense.
The Cronin Trial.
Tho trial of Coughlin for his participa
tion in the murder of Dr. Cronin in Chica
go, some years ago, is dragging its way
through the courts there.
According to a story published in a
Chicago paper, another of the conspirators,
Burke, came very near confessing, when
he was first arrested. The story reads as
Vartin Burke was a long time after his
extradition from Winnipeg on the verge of
making a complete confession of all tbe
events connected with the murder of Dr
Cronin. Judge Longneckcr, at that time
Prosecuting Attorney, tells to-day what a
narrow escapo he bad from securing from
Burke a confession that would have chang
ed tho whole complex ion of tbe celebrated
trial of the conspirators who hired the
Carlson ccttago for their awful butchery.
Judge Longnecker says:
"B reached Chicago in charge of
Chief Hubbard, who bad taken immediate
s u per vision of his extradition and had gone
to Winnipeg to bring Burke homo. 1 or
dered hiin carried at once to the Harrison
utri et station. Here I feel I made my firxt
mistake. Peihaps I ought to have bad him
taken to some other station. 1 went di
recti) to the station, where Chief llubbard
and I belli a long interview with the pris
oner. I tried my best to get him to con
fess and I am confident that I should have
succeeded bad nobody else seen bim be
fore my next visit.
Burke, I said to him, we have got evi
donee enough to hang you. There is not
the Hlightent doubt of that. We know that
you hired the Carlson cottage. Wo know
that you bought the furniture which was
put in it. We know that you fled to Cana
da as soon as the murder was discovered
We know all this and a good deal more,
and we can prove all we know. Now, we
also know that you were not alone in the
murder. Tbero were others. Now the
people who are behind the murder don't
care anything for you It is the others
who arc going to try to get off They will
»iniply use you as a scapegoat, as a bridge
to carry themselves and tbe rest over sata
ly. Burke, you had better use tbe only
chunce yon have to save your neck and
turn State's evidence.
I talked a long while with him in thin
strain. Then I showed him a letter from
his mother. It seemed to be the finishing
stroke When I left him that afternoon
both Ctief Hubbard and myself felt there
was not the slightest doubt that he would
confess all about it whon I returned on the
morro*. I left strict orders that nobody
should be allowed to nee Iturke. Hut Kx
Mayor Cregier and Stephen 1). May, who
v. as at that time City I'rosecutor, if Ire
member aright, procurred admittance and
hud a talk with him.
'•I don't want to be understood an iui
pugning the motive of either Kx Mayor
Cregier or Mr May. 1 feel positive that
the ox Mayor was heartily with us in our
efforts to convict Hurke, Mr. May also
had a perfect right to see him in his cap
acity of City Prosecutor. It is quite pro
bablo that they both wished to see Hurke
from shoer curiosity. Mr. May had form
erly been a partner of Lawyei Forrest, who
was defending the other prisoners
Whether anybody else saw Hurke or ot
that day Ido not know. Still, there were
plenty of police officials who had the right
of entrance to the cells.
"Hot the fact remains that the next
morning, when Chief Hubbard and I visit
ed Hurke, fully expecting to hear his con
fe».-ioD, the prisoner's whole demeanor had
completely changed, Instead ot looking
lik<: a man who seemed to have lost the
last straw of hope and hau determined to
suve himself by confession, Darke was dc
fiant. He laughed at us and told UH that
he guessed be would not coufess. As
Hurke *<vas leaving the station I told him
again that he was being nsed as a scape
g a"
••To prove it, I said: 'Just you tell your
Wisconsin lawyer when you see him that
y i i have made up your mind to confess
everything and plead guilty. See how
quickly be will try to persuade you not to
do so ' I think tnat Hurke may have done
so and that his lawyer from W sconsion
may have wavered a little. This may ac
count for his being supplanted by Mr.
Forrest almost immediately alterwerd. I

Kansas—The Great and Glorious.
EDITOR CITIZKS:— WhiIe reading the
CITIZEN to-day, I noticed the inclosed
item. (Tribune notice) and thought per
haps it may include an old partner like
myself living nut in the serene, beautiful
climate of Kansas. The improved Eden ,
of the Great West: the land of wheat and
corn, more luxuriant than that of tho
cradle land of man's nativity, from "which
the ancient patriarchs journeyed in search
of corn and pasture for their flocks; Kansas,
the American Shechem, replete with cat
tle ranches, filled with feeders to ieed the
hungry millions with beef and pork of
richest flavor; provided with railroads lor
the movement of products; affording easy
access to competitive markets Among the
many industries, yet in their infancy, are
the dairv-farms, stocked with the best
breeds and owned and controlled by man
aging farmers; together with poultry a-u
hog raising. These are the evidences of
the progressive energy which step by step
has lifted Kansas from tne least to a place
among the foremost, entitling her to pre
cedence in the van among the agricultural,
stock raising and feediEg states. The
farmers of Kansas have suffered trom the
decreased value of the produce they have
to sell, which is approaching nearer and
nearer the cost of production and with the
shortage in crops the past two years and
the financial crisis which we are passing
through have been heavy drafts on the ac
cumulations of the hitherto prosperous
years, and still prosperity abounds. We
feel confident that the re-ult of the la"t
election will do much towards restoring
confidence in the country at large. Kansas
possesses material properties of wealth and
her people inherit the natural pluck,energv
and skill, common to the American peo
ple and understand how to convert their
abundant surplus products into cash, with
a willingness to bay eve.ry dollar of debts
public and private they owe. Kansas and
Kansas farmers have been grossly misrep
resented tor the past three years; her re
sources have been underrated and her mis
haps exaggerated to the extreme by pro
fensional political tramps and sore-head.;,
who have labored industriously traveling
throughout the country, from Kansas to
the Atlantic, devouring the substance ot
truth, that dwells in others by publishing
falsehoods that amount to downright ly
ing, in order to get a little money out of
the resources of the State and the energ)
of its people, by the movement of their
jaw to join calamaty's distrustful wail with
contented joy in Kansas homes instead of
making a manly effort to earn an honest
dollar bv the sweat of tbeii brow.
Very respectfully,
J. E. Bcrkhabt.
A LOSOOS minister spoke thoughtfully
when he said tfcat many men are so intent
on the accumulation of wealth that they
lose all thought ol interest in the beautilul
and find no time for any thing but their
work. "'No material gain," he says, "can
compensate us for the loss of leisure or the
loss of those powers by which we appreci
ate nature, books, art and the beautiful
things of life. 1 have known men who
have been so intent on making money that
at 50 they have been incapable of any idea
that was not mercantile. The rim of the
guinea was for them the horizon of the
whole world. A decent dog has the ad
vantage of them every way in the interests
of his life and general behavior. Such
men are found every day, in the church
and out of it, men of the earth, earthly.
When they die the question is how much

Until within the past few weeks the
name of Lee was as potent in Virginia
as anything well could be. If the babies
ot the P. F. V's. were not put to sleep by
it the youth of the State at least were
taught that the} niu. t follow wherever it
led. For a full generation they implicitly
obeyed their instructions.
Iu the recent election for United States
Senator, however, the faithful element
were rudely shocked by the defeat of no
less a person than Fitz Hugh himself, and
the dazed manner in which they are still
rubbing their eyes at the result, and crying
fraud with all their might between gasps,
evinces very clearly how badly bewildered
they aro. The facts appear to be that Lee
relied upon the, reverence surrounding his
name while Martin, having no regard for
ghosts in politics or elsewhere, captured
the machine, set up the candidates, and
thus got tho Legislature.

A farmer living near Perth, Fulton
connty, helped steal his own hog the other
night. He was awakened from his sleep
in the middle of the night and asked by
two men to assist them in loading a hog
which had tumbled out of the crate in their
wagon. He willingly gave a helping hand,
and then returned to quiet slumbers. The
next morning he went to feed his porker,
but there was no porker to feed. It then

Sampson Getholtz, a Slipperyrock town
sbip, Lawrence county, farmer, thought
he would surprise his family Sunday night
by sliding down the old-fashioned chimmey
and impersonating Santa Clans. He tied a
rope to the to£ and made the passage all
right until he reached the center of the
chimney, where he stuck fast. Getholtz
was unable to draw himself up, and finally
yelled for aid. Members of the family did
not recognize his smothered voice, and ran
from the house terror-stricken. Neighbors
were summoned, and after much difficulty
Getholtz made himself known. The
chimney was torn down level with the
rool, a rope was lowered,and by the united
efforts of three men Uethoitz was pulled
It'shaidto imagine a more awkwaid
and disgusting mishap than that which
overtook Columbus C. Kean, of Venango
county, one day last week. He was on
his way to Titusville with a load of turkeys.
While en route the door of the coop be
came unfastened, and when Mr. Kean was
nearing Titusville he discovered that 18 of
the best of the birds had availed thorn
selves of stopover privileges and had taken
to the woods along the journey.
The teaching of the German language is
one of the features of the Titusville public
schools. There are nearly one hundred
pupils in the German classes. This line of
study is gainiug in popularity, and the
system employed shows very satisfactory
results. In behalf of the teaching of
German in the schools, the Jhrrihl -ays
that to be able to speak the language is of
great benefit in commercial and profession
al life in this country; also, that the lite.ra
turn of the language is exceedingly rich in
philosophy, science and art.
Sharon is stirred up by a sensation
Richard Pew, Albert Clark and David
Williams, citizens of good reputation,were
arrested last Wednesday charged with im
plication in the robbery of the residence of
Mrs. Sarah Williams, near Bloomfield,
.several weeks ago, and also with being
connected with tho Keeder robbery. Under
the floor of a room in the Pe* house was
found a vast quantity of household goods,
some of which Mrs. Williams identified a>
her own. Pew says ho got the goods in a
legitimate way, but the detective thinks he
has made no mistake.
A year or more ago the St. Louis Steej
Range Company sent a number of wagons
and men into Indiana county for the pur
pose of selling their stoves from house to
house. Then were making many sales
when they Were brought to a sndden stop
by a fellow named Danny Williams, who,
as ho said, in the interest of tho integrity
of the law, had the drivers of the wagons
arrested lor peddling iu ludiana county
without a license and in violation of law.
The cases were heard before George Row,
Esq , and a host of witnesses were heard.
Tho case, for various reasons, attracted
much attention. Williams,the prosecutor,
took u deep interest in the controversy,hut
swore that ho was only prosecuting the
ease that "the majesty of tho law should
maintained," or words to that effect. The
tact that, tho penalty, if the parties should
be convicted, was a fine of SIOO in each
case, and that the prosecutor was entitled
to half the line, had i.o weight with him,
of course, lie is not built that way. Bur,
at all events, he pushed tho cases with
vigor and the justice, after due deliberation,
rendered a decison adverse to tho Stove
Company, and the judgments, amounting
to some sl<>oo, was recorded against them.
But the Stove Company is a big corpor
ation and declined to allow the matter to
rest at that. They appealed the matter to
court, and the case was heard by Judge
Greer, oi Butler, while holding court at
this place some months since. On Friday
last, in a lengthy opinion, Judge Greer de
cided the case against Williams and in
favor of the company. The costs amount
to a couple of hundred dollars, which the
prosecutor will have to pay.
