Tins was the t.mo to have gone, but
the trout bit so readily thai wo could
not withstand tho temptation so wo
decided to string and hide vvl.nt w0
bad, and take another basket full. So
at it wu went. No sooner vo..M the
hook touch the wntcr than we had a
twin. We forgot the home, the boy
nml tho dog.
Suddenly there was a rushing
through an oat field, ns il n mad bull
were coming. We looked towards the
house nml saw the farmer and bin two
boys on the fence, the woman in the
door and the bull dog coming towards
tl. We saw it all we hud been dis
covered. The well trained dog hnd
bt'OU sent to hunt us out, and as the
matter appeared, it was safe to be get
ting out oi the way right lively.
To oat run n dog was not to be thought
of. There- waa no tinvo to lose. lie
cleared a fence ami came for ns just
as ne reached n tree, ami by great ao
titity, took n front scat on a limb
above his reach.
Here waa n precious go. A vicious
bull dog under the tree, nml n farmer
and two big boys ready to movo down
upon our world. It was fight, foot
race, or fangs.
The fanner veiled to Ills dog
" Watch him, Tige."
Tige piopoeit to do that little thing
nml keeping bis eye on us, seated him
self under the tree.
Then spike this ugly farmer man :
".lusl hold on that, stranger, till
we get breakfast ;'theu we'll come ami
see you. If you an in n hurry, how
ever, vou cat! go now. Watch him,
We siirinlcd trouble, quite much;
for twice had Jiat man ol bull dogs

a peace man was not good, ami there

and a large hook intended for rock

We called the dog pet names, hut
he wasn't on it. Then wu tried to
move down, when he'd mo e up, At

Tige was in appetite. He smelt the

ot leveiiue, notwithstaiiiling thu fact
that Congress has ubolishcd taxation
on raw coltou nun uinuuiuciuivu niu
cles which would liavo ruulizcd 87,
Thu comparutivo result lias been
that Congiess, within thu two years
ending Juno 30, 1807, has reduced in
ternal taxation to tho extent ol 180,
000,000 per nunum; that tho ordinary
expenditures of thu Government havo
been reduced to $130,000,000, wliiuh,
considering tho depreciation ol paper,
is not lu excess of $00,000,000 in gold,
which was tho amount in Hiiolinitnu'a
administration before tho war. Tho
increase in the production ol thu coun
try will supply tho needed nenncs,
nml probably warrant an niinii.il re
duction ol the rnto ol tntntion equal to
that which wns niadu in 1607, mid re
peated in 1808.
The suillelcnoy of thu revrnno for
lPOf-0 is somewhat contingent upon
the action of Congrei-i on tho Army
bill. General Grant, while ucting Sec
retary of Wnr, submitted u revised es
timnto for the the supported thu mili
tary establishment. The expenditures
of the nnny nnder tho partial reduc
tion tiiadu under existing laws, for tho
years 1807-H, was IM.OOO.OOO. Tho
revised estimnto predicated upon it re
duction of the force, n consolidation of
regiment", and mustering nut of unriii
ployed ofltcers called for only 33,000,
000, and the appropriations aru made
in anticipation ol such reduction. But
tho expenses of that portion of the ar
my on tho Western frontier are found
to b greater than tho estimate ol the
entire) military force, being in diet
about lour millions per month, or 118,
000,000 per year. Air. Walla calls tho
attention of Congress to tho fart that
unless an important saving can bo cQ
eetcd hero or elsewhere, thu expenses
of the War Department will greatly
exceed the appropriations, and till tho
surplus revenue will be required to
meet the deficiency,
One of thu greatest difficulties tin
derail government-! In the reduction
ol armies nml navies, U to git rid of
thu officers. The regiments may bo
leduced to ten privates nml as many
sergeants each, without a complaint,
but thu moment the baud of retrench
incut is extended lo Colonels, Majors,
Captains ami Lieutenants, theie is a
teliiblu outcry. Every olllccr lias n
lmt of lelalivcs, male and leiuale, in
and out ol Congress, ami these nit
combine against the icducliou ol tho
number of officers who arc performing
imaginary services. Wu know that
Congressmen find it hard to resist
these appeals, but duty lo the couiitty
lemauds that the pension list be not
burdened with sine cures, either in
civil or military sen ice. Congress
has no right to expend any poitimi oi
110,000,000 per mouth lo keep up n
military organization which is useless.
Whatever can be shown to bu neces
sary, either in repressing Indian ill-
l in Imnccs or in maintaining order in
the iiureconstiiicted States, the people
will chcciiully pay, but nut one dollar
