, THE DOUBLE LIFE,
The cleverest and wickedest mystery
of human society today is the so-called
donble-life. It is only unearthed by the
courts and coroners, and this, of itself,
is peculiarly appropriate, since discov
ery of the evil has but one wretched
alternative, the penitentiary or the grave.
It ia hard to conceive the sort of man
that deliberately assumes the fearful
burden of duplicity necessary to success
fully maintain two wives, in two homes;
raise and nurture two sets of children;
work for them, sustain, comfort, teach,
and love them; and carry it all off with
the apparent quality of single-minded-ness
and earnestness inseparable from
the ordinary duty of paternity.
' Such a man is, of course," abnormal;
this he must be, ever to concieve the
scheme. But his moral irregularity in
' no way vouches for a mental lapse of
1 any degree, for the man who can ac
complish this feat of dual deviltry, is
anything but insane. He must have
mental poise of the highest order to
maintain the dangerous and delicate
equilibrium of his position. He is warp
ed only in his moral sense, and his will
ingness to do so profound and desperate
a wickedness his whole life through. He
is without parallel for deliberate, con
scious, cultivated duplicity and passes all
comprehension in human classification.
There is one inseparable conclusion, in
his history, and that is, that from the
moment he begins to indulge his fearful
sin against humanity, he sets up and in
vokes the penalty as well. He is the
unescapable victim of trepidation, fear
of discovery, exposure, reprisals; he is
instantly on guard against error of time,
plaee, people, speech; covertly on the
lookout for signs of suspicion, everlast
ingly busy hiding his tracks; adopting
new phases of action and custom and
committing himself to thousands of ex
traordinary adaptations the common and
decent man never thinks of. His dual
post and privilege h no sinecure. He is
the hardest-driven scoundrel on the face
of the earth, and luckily, one of the
PIERCE, THE SOLDIER-POET.
We do not know who this soldier-poct,
Pierce is that the United States army
authorities are about to court-martial
for his temerity in framing and singing
the camp-song "Always in the Way," but
we will bet our office shears to a dog
collar, that he is an ex-newspaper man.
The very adroitness, Bkill and audacity
of the poem has the touch and talent of
the craft; and if it is so, we are sorrier
for Pierce than ever. He must be a
thorn in the sides of the snobs or he
would not be put out of the service by
the back-door of court-martial. The
army officer as a general thing is amen
able to a good thing, and while he may,
for the sake of discipline, frwn on any
thing that is likely to bring reproach
upon the service, he is placable always
and concedes much to the humor and
fame of the corps, no matter whence it
may come. This being the case, it would
seem that Pierce's offense is over-rated
just a bit in favor of some- super
sensitive and oonsoriuous party, who
was, aptly, or inaptly, subjected to ridi
cule by the use of the funy and popular
air, at some particular juncture. '
There U a veritable dlvi of mur
derous and suicidal blood k'U'i'S f,H
thew day. The pre of the country is
fairly dripping with it. Hardly an lu
jtws out without it separate and effec
tive story of death, by knife or pistol
or plate-glass of other dubious wapon.
The universal morbidity, perhaps, repre
sents a current cycle; a sjtecinlty in
eventualities s or a juncture of personal
erii in human life. But whatever the
cause, it is becoming monotonously nor
rid, and horridly monotonous.
A WORKER'S PARADISE,
Astoria ha fewer idle men than any
place In the country. There is not a
mill, not factory,, nor farm, nor com
mercial depot of any sort ot u here
about that has all the labor it wants;
and good wagn are current. Of course,
thoe who work for these establishments
are expected to work, and do work. And
the only idle men in port are those who
do not want to work, or do not need to.
A funny little story in this relation was
told yesterday morning when a well
known tug captain reported to his head
quarter office that it was "not safe to
make any more landings at a certain mill
dock in this vicinity, because the mill
people were always successful in coaxing
the deck hands to quit the steamer for
the mill." This tells the tale in brief
and with all truth. ,
