Joe Waldrop, the populist orator who
addressed a few of our citizens at the
court house Tuesday night, among othei
misstatements, said that Congressman
Ellis bad voted for the repeal of the
Sherman act. Anyone who will take
the pains to look into the Congressional
Record will discover that neither he nor
his colleague Hermann voted as Waldrop
claims. A man may falsify and he may
be honestly mistaken, but when he rises
to address an audience some of whom he
may never see again to rectify his error,
he should not handle the truth so care
lessly. . .

Thou sweet angel child,

By sin undented,

Thou hast flown to thy rest.

"The storekeeper who expects to do
business in 1894 must practice the lesson
taught in the following story: "Two
frogs found themselves in a pail of milk
and they could not jump out. One of
them was for giving up and said to the
other, 'Good by ; I sink, I die.' Said
his mate, 'Brace up, you duffer ! Keep
a jumpin' and see what turns up.' So
they kept jumping up and down all
night arid by morning had so churned
the milk that it turned to butter, and
they jumped off the butter to the ground.
"Applied to business the fable means
this : If you want the business of 1894
to exceed that of 1893, 'ket-p a jumpin'.'
Don't cry, I aink, I die!' The mer
chant who continues looking for ' bad
times will not survive to see gooi times.
The man who keeps a jumpin' will see
good times first. Carry a level head,
buy standard goods and "keep a good
clean stock, an attractive store and ad
vertise with bright;' attractive daily
