(These "Thoughts" by a layman, are read In
a quarter of a million homes, scattered in every
State of tho Union. In this county, they will be
louiiu wee oy wecK in inc columns 01 tnis pa
per only, as wo have made arrangements with
the author for their exclusive publication.)
Life in ''(tie home of the bravo and
lli6 land of the free" is not by any means
tho selfish tooth-and-nail struggle for ex
istence that some vronid hare us believe
it to be. One phrase of evolution has
become eo commonly accepted among us
that wo rattle off "euryival of the fittest"
quito glibly, and imagine it explains ev
erything of tinevenness in the lives of
our fellows who are better or worge off
than wo. When, however, you and I
can aeo eo many "unfit" both 6uryiving
and flourishing, we must look for some
law in operation different from that
which Herbert 8pencer shows to prevail
among lower creature3, "carniverous an
imals remove from herbivoruus herbs in
dividuals past their primp, and weed out
the ticlrly, tho malformed, antl the least
fleet and powerful."
And what may this different law be
that explains the continued existence of
those who aro weak and feeble and puny?
The law that in the hearts of tho high
est being3 of the earth there shall grow
with their progress upward from the an
imal an increasing recognition cf the
claims that the feeble have upon the
strong. This impulse of man to look
after and protect his weaker brethren is
more completely pervasive of our civil
ization than would appear from the sur
face of oar daily life, covered as it is
with people scrambling eagerly for self
and pelf, these two. But turface indica
tions are net enough for our inquisitive
human race, else were coal mines and
other forms of mineral wealth practi
cally unknown, and we would ttill creep
in and out of caves and gather our scant
sheepskins about ua.
Look then with me, just for a few mo-
menU, beneath all the fierce struggle for
wealth, food, life even, going on around
us, aad by the law of "the snrvtval of
the fittest" explain to me the existence
of eo simblea thing as your public Echool.
You will find yourself unable to do it, for
you will find there the children o! worth
leas, shiftless parents who make no con
tribution to the maintenance of the
teacher, and yet who reap the benefits
that are secured to all children alike by
tbo industry and thrift of the parents of
By that same law explain a hospital
where suffering creatures, maimed in
many cases beyond all hope of future
utility, are kept alive by the most expen
sive appliances of science ; where even
the slightest neglect of the poorest pa
tient, if that neglect becomes known,
arouses an apro.tr. You cinnot by any
possibility see from such a place that the
fit alone survive or are deemed worthy
Endeavor to uuderstand how, by the
rule of "every man for himself," your
little country church came into exist
ence. Your task will be a hard one, for
into it are built the widow's mite, the
farmer's haul-earned dollar, the mechan
ic's gift saved out of some perilous em
ployment all given up gladlv without
hope of personal gain.
Again, tell mo or yourself whence
come public libraries instead of the pri
vate aggregations of the "middle ageB" ;
public parks instead of enclosures pro
hibitively walled against all that are
"common or unclean"; public art gal
leries, where the connoisseur needs must
jcstle against the poor and the thread
In all tho foregoing examples, tho
chief beneficiaries are those who have
succeeded in doing least to gain such
pleasures. From the well-to-do have
been abstracted tho advantages they or
theirs have earned, and these advantages
are given to others who have not earned
them. Yet not a voice of protest is
raised, though this is all manifestly in
favor of tfie "unfit" at the expense of
Wo run counter to this "animal" law,

becauso the great advancing common
sense of civilization is superior to any
such brutish, beak-and-claw method of
making progref s. You and I belong to
society to some one government, if you
will and we are no longer regarded by
it as individuals. We are members of
that government, much as your fingers
aro members of your body, and, ts
members, are to bo protected, guarded,
cherished as part and parcel of ycur own
life. By our social instincts and our
government, which, after all, is more
for the protection of tho weak than the
strong, nn end ia put in some degreo to
the inter-individual struggle for exist
ence, and the strength and advantage of
all is in a senso given to each one. In
fact, an unhindered struggle for exist
ence would break up government, soci
ety, everything that now surrounds uf,
tho defeated and the weak, with pleas
ures that would hayo been unreachable
by us in the days of JIagua Charto, or

This priticiplo of government explains
the theory of our courts of law, whero
tho tuoet feoble, represented by "the
State" as plaintiff, may bring to his
knees tho most haughty and wealthy
criminal. If you aro enjoying any of tho
mental, logal, physical, spiritual helps
that surround you ou every side, you
may set it down as a certainty that some
one somewhere has given up something
for you, whom he has never teen, just
because you are a member of the same
society or the Eamo body politic. It
amounts in all to this, that wc are com
ing more and mora to recognize the value
of human beings as brothers of oars;
that the interest of all is best subserved
by throwing the best products of a high
civilization unreservedly before thoso J
who, in their individual struggle, are
least able to attain to them.
You may poEsibly say in your heart,
"Uut what 13 all this other than the old

you are right. If so, then the fact that
the Great Social Reformer uttered words
which we are only beginning to fully un
derstand after 1000 years of crab-like de
vouring of one another, ages of slaughter
and selfishnets, proves Him to haye
been a teacher whose spiritual insight
most of U3 are far from equaling.
If you aro a thinking reader, you will
recognize the incompleteness of the line
of thought in . this one column. Very
well ; then think further for yourself, lt
will do you good, for most of us are in
too much of a hurry to thick. If yon
are nn unthikins reader, this is quite
enough for one week; it may startle you
to a faint understanding of your relation
ship to your fellow?, and your mutual
responsibility. Let us break together
here week by week tho bread of good
sense and helpful hopefulness until, on
paper, we become more firmly ac
quainted. Pfelster Won His Bet.
Chicago, 111., Nov. 6. One of the
happiest men in Wisconsin is Charles
Pleister, of Milwaukee. Mr. Pfeister
made a bet preceding the e!e tion of
$3000 that McKinley would have 205
votes in the electoral college. This was
onlyoueof his many bets, but the others
were comparatively easy. When he
saw tho table given oat by Henry C.
Payne he called him up by telephone and
asked if that table was correct. .Mr.
Payne said that it was, aad that the re
publicans had 201 votes certain. This
was one less than enough to win his bet,
aud he asked Mr. Payne if he could not
scare ap another vote, as a iSOOO bet de
pended upon it. Jnst then Mr. Payne
received a telegram from Senator War
ren of Wyoming, assuring the national
committee that one of Wyoming's elec
toral votes was sure for McKinley. 3Ir.
Payne told Mr. Pfeister of the tele
gram and the Milwaukee man wa3 made
happy, winning his bet.
Sharkey is Confident.
New York, Nov. 0. Tom Sharkey,
the sailor, matched to box Fitzsimmons
for $10,000 purse, has one necessary re
quisite to success, and that is confidence.
In a letter to a friend just received from
San Francisco, Sharkey says:
"Everything t3 finally settled for my
comiDg fight with Fitzsimmons. I haye
just started to train at the Cliff House,
ocean beach, near San Francisco. I was
neyer better in my life, and after five
weeks' work I am confident of winning
sure. You may smile and say all fight
ers talk that way before a contest. All
who think different can bet against me,
and that will leave some nice paste
boards to show after the fight. We
meet December 21, and then every one
will know who is the best man. Our

man gave out tho following signed state
ment: "I sincerely hope that the election
will settle forever a question that in my
opinion threatened tho honor and good
faith of the United States more than any
other since iho close of the civil war.
Confidently assuming as I do the elec
tion of McKinley, I hope tho present
gold standard wilt bo maintained, with
the largest use of silver that can be
maintained at a parity with gold. This
settled, we ought promptly to make
such changes in our tariff and revenue

money to meet current expenses of the

Why Boers Fight so Well.
HAving many chances at success
provcsoften a disadvantage. General
W. F. Molyneux, a fighter in the Trans
vaal, tells in "Campaigning in South
Africa and Egypt," about going to tho
house of a Boer, upon the Iattei's invi
tation to become his guest on a deer
hunt. The general arrived on horse
back, accompanied by oue servant.
Dismounting, he carried into the bouse a
bag containing what would measure a
peck or so of coramou cartridges. The
Boer looked at the bag in astonishmet,
and exclaimed :
"Yen Englishmen mu3t be very rich
Cartridges cost sixpence each here."
Rather mystified, and declaring that
there are poor Englismen, General
Molyneux asked :
"Where are your cartridges?"
"In this," replied the Boer, tapping
"Then you don't intend to do much
"Well, two spring bucks are as much
as I can carry."
"Suppose you miss."

The sequel was that the Beer got his
two deer, one for each cattridge, while
the general fired five shots and got one.
