"It is the fashion of the day to cry lift
'breadth,' to Bound the praises of the
many-sided man. Breadth of mind is a
good thing, provided it does not hinder,
as it is too apt to do, unity of aim and
concentration of thought and action. But
all history shows that the highest suc
cess in any calling is reserved for minds
of one faculty, where no rival powers di
yide its empire.
"The.one prudence in life," says Em
erson, and he never said a wiser thing"
is concentration." It ii the agent of
single and determined purpose who is
the edged man and therefore cuts his
way through obstacles to nuccess. It is
only one great purpose, adhered to ob
stinately amid all discouragements and
hindrances, that can produce success,
that can unify all our powers, and by
binding them, like so many cords into
one cable, make them irresistible."
rontoff.ce Decree It to Be Unlaw

A new ruling of the Postal Depart
ment, or, to be more specific, that part
of it presided over by Third Assistant
Postmaster-General Edwin C. Madden,
is to the effect, that the mailing lists of
newspapers and periodicals must here
after include the names of only paid-up
subscribers. The text of the ruling is
s follows: ' '
"The department holds it to Le not
within a publisher's privilege to mail at
the pound rate of postage, as to sub scribers,
copies of his publication to
mersons whose subscriptions have ex
pired; and the inclusion within tlit
number presented for mailing as to le
gitimate subscribers.of copies addressed
- to Dersons who are not . legitimate sub
scribers, will deprive the publisher of
ihe rjound rate upon the whole, unless
the illegitimate portion be separated
It will be seen that this means noth
ing else than that a newspaper publish
er may no longer give credit to bis sub
ecribers. It's to be "paid in advance"
or nothing. It may be thought that an
easy way out of the difficulty will be to
omit dates of expiration from address
labele, but there are rumors roundabout
of a deteeth e branch of the postoffioe
department that will devote itself to
publishers only. If there bo foundation
for the report and with Mr. Madden
in authority nothing is impossible nowa
dayswe may expect at some time
soon to receive a visit from a burly gen
tleman with authority from Mr. Mad
den to look over our lists and our
books to see if there be any names there
of persons who have not paid in advance
for the paper. If such be found we
will be Informed we cannot mail longer
to them, and, what is more, we cannot
mail to anybody, unless we first sepa
rate what to Mr. Madden is the chaff
from the wheal.
It's a bad state of affairs, this which
concerns the present management of the
postoffice department, and it bids fair to
grow worse. No publisher knows when
he Is safe from invasion j the depart
ment may swoop down upon him at any
moment and he will have to pay or suf
fer the consequences.
The Appeal to lteason, Wilshire's pa
per and other reform journals seem to
liaved riled Mr. Madden, and he has al
ready driven Mr. Wilshire from "free"
America to Canada, and it is no telling
when he'll bogin to harass the smaller
papers. Subscribers who wiBh their pa
per continued you should pay in advance
as soon as possible.
The county tax for this year is 33
mills and the city tax about 47 mills.
This is about 3 mills higher than last
year, and everyone knows it was high
enough then. The only way to reduce
taxes is to put goud men in office that
will look after the taxpayers some and
not after their own salary so much.

Aa a general law in economics it may
be stated that the terfflency to combina
tion increases as the number o! competi
tors decreases and the amount of capital
for each competing plant increases. The
tendency for both these conditions to
manifest themselves in our industrial
world is too well known to mention. In
1880 there were 1943 plants with a com
bined capital of $62,000,000 manufactur
ing agricultural implements; in 1890
there were but 010 plants, while the
capital invested had more than doubled.
The number of plants engaged in manu
facture of leather decreased in the same
period from 5124 to 1596, while the capi
tal involved increased from 67 to 8L millions.

It is Baid that the great philospher of
antiquity, Aristotle, who dominated the
world's thought for 3,000 years, once
said that he owed his vast acquirements
more to Ins having a command ovor his
mind, to his ability to hold it steadily
to a given object, than to any natural
superiority of intellect. Newton, like
wio, attributed his gie.it discoveries to
"patent concentrated thought."
If there, ia anything certain regarding
human achievements, it is that steady,
undivided attention is essential to the
accomplishment of all great undertak

Ninety per cent of New England far

members, who carry over $11,000.00 of
Grange fire insurance on farm property;
have 260 grange halls worth nearly $600,

which is one of the solid istitutions ot
the state. They exert a power in the fi

'Last month the United States treas
ury had in its vaults $500,000,000 in gold.
Piling up audi a mountain of cash is a
monstrous absurdity. It is proof of the
fact that the treasury, as a central re
serve bank, is miserably mismanaged.
That amount of money should not be
withdrawn from the channels of trade.
The treasury is on one side apt to be
bulldozod by Wall Street speculators,
and on the other is so hampered by con
gressional limitations that it cannot pro
tect either itielf or the country against
them. It has become an unwieldy,
cumbersome, meddlesome and partly
helpless old incubus .
Is not the public welfare identical
with the wealth of individuals? This is
the question we have put ourselves, and
we hitve answered it with the policy of
protection till we have difficulty in re
sisting a ship subsidy to redound to the
benefit of such corporations as the Stan
dard Oil Company. Patriotism cannot
thrive in the atmosphere we have pro
vided for it. If we would restore and
strengthen love of country, we must get
back to the prosperity of the masses of
men the people and the nation as the
true aim of government.
Rowland O. Hazard, of Teacedtile,
H. I., who ought to know what he is
talking about, being woolen manu
facturer, says: "There has beea ho defi
nite connection between the price of
wool and the tariff. There have been
high prices under low tariffs and low
tariffs and low prices under high tariffs.
"Wool-growers are dependent on wool
manufacturers for their market. "The

The truth that special privilege, in
whatever form, whether it be a tariff tax
or a telephone franchise, is ' the real

enemy of the natural use of capital,

canlpeople if they would save themselves

life, from increasing concentration of
wealth, and from increasing social dis
A manufacturer of Bhoddy in Cleve

is equal to three hundred million pounds

begun to facilitate its use.
It is generally recognized that the

aproaching a critical conjuncture.
Germany, Austria-Hungary, France and
Russia are now gathering a beet crop
which will yield an output of sugar far
surpassing in quantity that of any pre
vious year. The total beet sugar output
of Europe for last year is completed at
6,190,t JO tons.

to $108,900,000 Mexican, military sup
