SOME GOOD DEBTS TO HAVE.
Every young man should be In debt.
Not in debt to his tailor or his landlady,
or for a bill in a saloon, or cigar store,
tor that class of obligation does more
harm than good, evon If he pays within
a reasonable time. It la well, though,
to be encumbered by. some real estate
mortgage, or by such a liability as build
ing association shares and insurance;
' not a burden which Is gomg to become
a drain, to make life a drudgo and call
-for "every spare penny, but one which wll:
have a tendency to maka him select his
J pleasures rather than drift Into them for
; want of any other object In life.
Host young men do not see much to
gain by saving a few dollars each month,
and they fall into the habit of letting It
all go. A small partial payment Invested
In real estate with the natural additions
he would make, having once become In
terested, will, amount to a very snug lit
tle sum by the time lie Is 40. At that age
ai man usually determines whether his
life Is a business success or a failure,
If a succesj, the Uttlo accumulation
that taught him how to chut off foolish
expenditures has probably been the ee-
crut of that success. If a, failure the
fact that he Js possessed of a snug sum
in cuish or lu equivalent will bo found
a very plowing reflection. The pay
ments ull come during what may be
termed his beat producing ycurs, nnd are
rarely a hardship. The mistake is fre
quently mad of going In too doop, par
ticularly In real estate. Anxiety to make
a fortune quickly Insteadi of attaJnlng a
competence has rulnedi many careers
which, under the plan of gradual accu
mulation would have been both success
ful and brilliant. A heavy load means
both physical and mental strain. No
man can afford to shirt off Ills pleasures,
and his recreation altogether, lie needs
both the society of women and the com
panionship of men as 'well us a class of
recreation which will keep his montiu
faculties clean and active. He needs,
moreover, long before ho is frty, the
company and guidance, of a good v Ifo.
No one can afford to starve the mind
and hoant to feed tho pocket. Every
Hfe 'needs laughter as much os the
rose needs the sun, and every ilfe needs
soma responsibility, soma .witrletiun.
Tho man with something to live wid
work for stills undur control; he with
nothing merely drifts. Good luck may
drift him Into harbor, but the chances
are agaliwt him.
The United States fairly swarms with
would-ba-cai.'t-be poets of "both sexes,
and the average country editor not only
prints but puff3 their dlshwatery dog
serel. For Instance. Arabella writes
something that starts oft thus:
"The summer time has come again and
leafy are the trees,
I htur the chirps of crickets and the
buzzing of the bees,
And I am Just as happy now as yonder
For the very one that I love best has
told me of his love. '
Pretty rocky, ain't It? Or, perhaps,
it's something like this, from a Jilted
"O, Arabella, why did you go and trust
You know I loved you and worshiped
your golden lUiir and laso your brow
And Jt jdosen't seem right that you should
go and throw me ovar Just at this
When my love for thee was Just begin
ning to show that It would soon be
In its prime."
The average country editor, Instead of
flinging such "rot" into the yawning
grave of unappreciated genius the waste
basket will put it in type and say:
"We print a gem of poetry from the
pen of a gifted contributor today, and
we predict thlalt its writer will make a
lasting mark in American literature."
O, temporal O , mores! O mush!
Republican policy. The national banking
system has given to the country a paper
circulation absolutely cafe and of uni
form valuo In every state, and It Is one
of the greatest blessings which the coun
try owes to Republican wisdom that It
has escaped from degrading bondage to
the use of elate bank notes, unlike In
different states, dangerous and costly
beyond the conception of those whose
experience bos begun within -the last
thirty years, causing Infinite vexation
and annoyance particularly to the work
ing people, who couldi not carry about
a bank director, nor refuse the paper
offered them as wages. In trying to
get back to that odious system the Demo
cratic party has made as great a blunder
on If H should etrlve to revive human
slavery. Hut the notion that legal tf n
dr ttiould be retired or contracted' Is
at bottom nothing but a step toward
the wildcat state bank scheme, and if
anything Is certain about the future, It
may be considered certain that the Re
publican party will not lend its assistance
to uny such "'heme,
THE DEACON'S VIEWS.
HOME MARKET NONSENSE.
Under this caption an Eastern free
trade Journal says;
"The tariff roformkvi look facts In
the face. They recognisa the fact that
the prices of many of t'ho farm.T's pro
ducts are made Vbroad, because the sur
plus must be sold In the open markets
of tho world. They, therefore, Insist
that lie U not In a position to pay tribute
tvj the manufacturers, whom pronto fnr
exceed his own. They have heard from
protectionists a groat' deal lUbout lim
suflielency if the homo niwkot, but the
fuct Ciow thut It l s, myth."
It Is true that tho prices of many of
the farmers' product are made abroad.
Thcrs are two ways of treating the fact
Om Is to so build up tho home market
tW.it farmers' products will not need to
go abroad, the. other to seek relief In
extending the foreign market. Tho
former Is tho way marked out by a. pro
tective tariff system, tho latter the way
of free trad. By placing duties on the
products of foreign factories so largo
a proportion of our people may be en
gaged In manufacturing that the fornvet
will find his market at home. The price
of farmers' products will not then be
fixed abroad. In case the home price
rises above the foreign price, the method
of protection that has bean given tho
manufacturer will be extended to tho
farmer. Botlv will be relieved from
competition with the cheapr labor and
cheaper lands of otlwr countries. The
free trader contends that foreign trade
tthoul'i be unreartrlcwd only by natural
laws. He makes a concession when lie
Jmlts that duties may be levied to pro
vide revonus for the national government.
T,ut he Insists that duties thall be placed
on such articles as we necessarily import,
as well aaon articles that ws can pro
duce ait borne.
The actual question b
The advertising space In a newspaper
has a fixed value. To sell' It for less
or to give It away Is to destroy Its value.
It Is more profitable to Mil space with
reading matter than to occupy It with
advertising at less than regular rates.
It never pays to put In an advertisement
simply to All up or to keep a dollir from
getting away. A dollar refused is often
two dollars made. The only way to get
paid for space Is to have an established
price, and nothing so Impresses en ad
vertiser with the fact that space !s worth
what Is asked for It like a refusal to
accept less when it is offered. The pub
Usher must not let the advertiser work
him either by Jewing him down or putting
off Ink or typo or some other material
upon him at double its actual value. A
publisher can, within rational limits, tlx
als own price upon his columns, but he
must stick to It even though It bring tears
to his eycB.
Mr. H. Hughes, one of tho tlggest
salmon buyers In the West, and a man
who Is thoroughly posted In the bmlneas,
was In the city yesterday. Regarding the
fall fishing operations, he remarked:
"That Is an ovll I havo been trying to
fight for twenty years. It has done
more to hurt tho lntcresy of the Royal
Chinook salmon and to cut down both
tho market price and tho price for raw
material than any other half dozen draw
backs combined. It' will mean thousiuids
of dollars In the pockets of both cunners
and flVhermen to kill the full operations.
Tho Aatorlan has my Hlncerost wishes
for a speedy victory."
