The decision in tlie Tweed ease, although
faking the public by surprise, is acquiesced
in. as much probably from the fact that it

fmwi any belief that the decision ot the

Tweed should eventually succeed in being
restored to free airland sunshine, he will
find himself a beggar, his home despoiled,
his old associates scattered, and his friends
asltamed to own hitn.

Blessed is tlie writer who can boii it
down. The man who knows so well what
he wants to say that he can come to it in a
few short, picturesque sentences, is the
readable and quotable journalist of these
days. People cannot wait, with the' pa
tience they nsed to have, to get at the pith
of things. The railroad has educated them
out of all patience with slowness. Tlie tel
egraph has completed that education, and
the. same time incapacitated them from the
endurance of words. When we have to
pay a fixed prio& so many cents for a
word for every word we employ to ex
press our meaning, we are apt to learn to
husk the seutence down to the kernel and
to value the art of expressing a thought
with the husks off. 4 We want the naked
idea. , . Words are nothing; Language
would be nothing if there was anything
brie'fer to take its place. But, since it
cannot be abolished, bill it down.

One of the late literary sensations irt
France is the publication of a pamphlet
entitled the "The Freemasons What are
They?" which is scattered broadcast, by
tens of thousands all oven the excitable
country. Tt is issued by the library ot the
military hospital of Toulouse. The author.
solemnly declares that the I reemasous are
possessed of a secret which is the. secret of
the devil, and that they pefortn a devil's
mass on the altar lighted by six candles;
that every one after having' spit on the
crucifix tramples it under loot, tlie diaboli
cal ceremony terminating by each one
ascending the altar and striking the holy
sacrament with a poignard. The pamphlet
also asserts ' that there are female Free
masons of bad character. r This is bolder
nonsense than the whole gridiron, greased
pole and great traditions of the jocular
popular stamp. . ; The wi iter ought to have
reflected that Louis XVIII, and Charles X.
and most of die nobles and noblemen of
their reigns belonged! to the brotherhood
This stuff is publis'ied in the interests of
religion. It it does the-Church any good,
all right. It certainly cannot do the Free
masons any barm in rmy country . which
promulgates such cnrre.it literature.
