Juhjcct to the action of the Republicans of li'irerson county at the primary election, lune IN. That "nothlnjr succeeds like success,"' is a cruel, heartless saying, fit only to be quoted in defense o( what were other wise indefensible. Failure, honorably met and nobly borno, 1 a thousand t linos better than the success that is gained through fraud, double dealings, or any of the arts of the dishonest man. Better, by far, that a man should live in obscur ity all his days than that he should win the highest success, that oan come to him who trades in truth to the hurt of his neighbors. The money-making spirit has so taken possosslon of a largo share of American people that they will defend or excuse almost any act not openly criminal that enriches the actor. Ex. t Two great gatherings of interest to many peoplo in Uoynoldsville are the . Presbyterian General Assembly and the Methodist Episcopal General Confer ence. The formor begins its session at Portland, Oregon, to-morrow and the utter hub neen in session ai uraanu, Neb.,since May 2nd. These great gath- erings of christian workers represent a very large constituency of some of the best peoplo of our land. In each of these questions of vital Interest aro to be considered. You will find in our column lute reports of these conven tions and whether you are Methodist or Presbyterian in fulth, those will lie of interest to you. It is too soon now to comment upon the result of those "meet' ings, but during the future yoars it Is Hoped they may apjiear to be to the ., , advantage of the denominations repre sented aud the general welfare of all -' .christian people, It is a mutter of surprise to many keen observers that Great Britain has eon- aented to take part in an international conference on silver. 1 The English pa 1 Vers are making very sharp attacks on Mr. Goschen for givinar hia assent to the oonferenoe and, with the present state of public opinion in England, it seems remarkable that Mr. Goschen should have yielded to the request of our Government. Tho co-operation of i enough governments has already been secured to assure the meeting of the t conference, and it is to be hoped that ,', .good result may Jollow.

Senator Gorman mini ) u very polite and able speech In the Senate a few days slnco. The questliin was on tin) passage of the naval appropriation bill., The Maryland leader, who aspires to head the next Democratic National ticket, expressed himself M not in sympathy with the Holmun theories and plans, but heartily in favor of such appropria tions as were demanded by the growth and progress of the country. lie be lieved, he said, in tho encouragement and fostering of American industries. Heearnestly favored sufficient appropri ation for the rebuilding of tho American Navy. This utterance of Senator Oor man will strengthen the already strong hold ho has on tho Democracy and tho people of the country at large. Strang er things, by far, have hapixmod than would occur if Mr. Gorman is accepted by his party as their leader in the em Ing presidential campaign. All lloman Catholic people as well as people of the various Protsant denomi nations are Interested in the recent utterance of the Vatican in regiti-d to the plan of education put in praetlco by Archbishop Ireland. A largo number of our American ioople are Catholics, and among them are found many of the most intelligent and liberal minded of our citizens. Any movement which is to effect a change in the methods of education approved by the olllcers of this church Is an Important one. It is claimed by high officials of tho church, however, that the recent letter from tho Holy See will not change the decrees of tho council of Baltimore. But tho views of leading prelatea differ some what as to the proer Interpretation of the Pope's letter. Let us hoH that aside from all other issues involved such action has been and will be taken as shall lead ultimately to the perfect accord of the Catholic church and our public school system. What is tho difference between nig gardliness and ext ravagance? Two men may have the same Income and expend the same sums and one be cxtravugant and the other parsimonious. So with town, stute or national affairs, the qtiestion of oxN3ndItures is not one of amount but one of newsslty Biid wisdom. That man is a niggard and a sHndthrlft who stints his family in providing the necessuncs of life and squander his income in personal indulgence. So congress may bo at tho some time par s'jnonious and extravagant. The ques tion the voter should ask of that man or party which asks his suffrage is not how much will you favor as a sum total of appropriation, but for what purpose aro you in favor of voting money. Scruti nize not the footing at the bottom of the page as you study appropriation bills, but tho items of the bill. The last congress was severely criti cised because of its large expenditures. It seems from present indications that tho present session is also to mako unusually large appropriations. Yet from all tho politicians during a cam paign wo hear much alxmt economy. Let our government lie run economi cally, let official extravagance cease, let businoss methods prevail. But how? Suroly not by tho voter accepting every partisan cry of economy that is raised and looking only at the sum total of appropriations; but by each citizen Informing himself concerning the nec essity and wisdom of tho various ex penditures. Tho intelligent voter is not the man who takes tho mere "say so" of tho political stump shaker or party pajicr, but the man who investi gates, meditates and votes whon ho votes, 'because ho knows what ho wants and whore and from whom to get it. What we desire surely, as citizens, is neither parsimony nor extra vagunco, nor both combined us they frequently aro in our governments' cxiMjnse bill, but economy. Let all make a study of the work of tho present congress and let each determine for himself as to the wisdom of its bills. Door Plates Out of Eashion. How completely the doorpluto has gone ont of fashion. When I came to New York to work for a living, a door plate was as essential an insignia of gen tility as a bank account, and shop where they were sold were to be found everywhere. On the residence streets of the better class, at a certain hout every morning, you would see a servant on every stoop, polishing the plate np before its owner had his breakfast. The doorplate was with us what the marble front step is to a Philadelphia Phila delphia's front steps are there yet. Onr doorplates have become things of the past, found only ou old fashioned houses without pretensions to style. Their places have probably been taken by the coats of arms which fashionable New York now pays a Frenchman to invent or borrow for it, and which make the titled visiting foreigner rub his eyes when he finds hia own crest over the door of a Wall street man of unknown origin or a railroad magnate of no ori gin at all.

Destitute- "What be you after now, Samu'l Pay son?" inquired a brisk and thrifty Ver mont farmer of a ihiftlegg neighbor, who came shuffling across the barnyard one morning with as much of a business like air as he was able to assume.

The man eating fly of Central Amer ica inhabits the low lying coast regions, and is much dreaded by the natives for the fearful results which follow its sting. Naturalists call it Lucilia homi nivora. The average specimen is about a third of an inch long. It has a big head, with the eyes on top. Its cheeks are a golden yellow, its abdomen dark blue with purple bands, its legs black, its wings unusually big, and they pro duce a continuous and loud buzzing when in motion. The person bitten by this fly gets a disease called myiasis. It generally be gins with an itching of the nose, then that organ swells and bleeds; next it be comes ulcerated, and in theso ulcers may be found the larva) of the fly. The whole face becomes swollen, erysipelas sets in, followed by meningitis and death. One man I knew shot himself after he had been bitten rather than face the tortures ho knew were certain. Cure is difficult. Subcutaneous injec tions of chloroform sometimes do good, but as often fail. One man I heard of was enred by lemon juice injected into his blood. Interview in Now York Tribune. Peculiar Pronunciation. Landor always pronounced yellow as yaller. We have heard Mr. A. R. Wal lace, the eminent naturalist, during the course of a lecture, repeatedly sound it thus, a mode of pronunciation said, in deed, to be traditional in many good old English families, and which includes the substitution of lay lock for lilac, Room for Rome, goold for gold, and woonderful for wonderful A homely old rural dean, long since dead, used always, like Sam Weller, to leave out the "w" In woman, and his "Wilt thou have this ooinan to be thy wedded wife!" was apt to mar the so lemnity of a marriage service. London Tit-Bits. An Easter scene la Athena, For some time before Easter the city f Athens wears a picturesque aspect. I bis is due in great part to the number of shepherds who, with their flocks, have come down from the mountains and are camped in every available open space, engaged in selling their lambs. There is no family so poor as not to break the long Lenten fast with an Easter lamb, the value of which is about a dollar, aud a veritable massacre of the innocents - is going on.
