land's ally, the London Times, Is
very silent on the labor situation In
the United States this year. Last
year It gave more apace to the Home
stead difficulties thna t had given to
anything American for years, but
this year, when the labor riots are In
England instead of the United States,
and w hen its friend Cleveland is not
running for office, it has nothing to
say on the subject of labor. It cer
tainly make a difference, in spite of
the boasted fairness and independence
of the Iindon Times, whether it has
a direct and personal interest or not
in a public matter of importance In
this country .-Sari Francisco Chron

Harrison signed the Sherman pur

sold we remittal In gold. Now, ii
there were nothing wrong w 1th our

wrong. What do these cost imer

They say: "We expected when we
bought the securities that they would
be redeemed In gold, as we paid gold
for them, but the way you are piling
up silver, and the widespread fear
that your obligations will te re-
thtemed in silver, has caused us to
stop all purchases, and we now ha-
tew to sell back to the United States,

MTaLk abont gwosss ! Tou manin't
tell mo there is no such thing as
atiosts. I nsed to think ao, but by
all the powers of past experience I
believe in ghosts now. My wife
biok a notion this summer that she
wanted to go up into tho mountains
of Tennessee and kevp house while
the stay-at-homes were being roasted.
I did not take very kindly to the
proposition, but as usual had to give
in to the mudame's persuasions and
went up into Tennessee to find a
plac. I had strict orders to get
well Into the country, and at last I
found a very nice house near a little
station in East Tennessee. It was a
beautiful place, and suited me exact
ly. The landlord and I cloned a
trade, when says he to m "Now,
Mr. Barding, it is no more than
right that I tell you this place Is
haunted." "Haunted!" says I.
"Now, see here, Mr. Smith, do I
look like a man who believes In
ghosts? Have I the aspect of one
whom a spook could Intrude upon ?"
Poor Smith thought he had made a
mistake. I saw my advantage, nnd
followed It up. "IV you, sir, pre
sume to tell me that I could by any
possibility be fculldoeed by a spirit?"
Smith weakened. He apologized
and I rented the house. My wife
was delighted with it. My children
romped among the flowers, th birds
sang In the trees arid the waters
babbled In the brook, and we were a
happy family. Oue day my wife
aud the babies went into the little
tow n to sjs'tid the day w ith some
new-made friends. I wus left lu
charge of the house. They bad not
Iss-n gone long w hen I seuttsl my
self on the veranda, and, hauling out
a big bundle of home pajs-rs, pre
pared to make a imst delightful tiny
of it. I was all alone, even the cook,
the tabby cut anil the dog Is-ing
absent. In the midst of a mt
learned discourse on the duties of
congress to the i'ople In the lllan
don Ulathersklte, someone tapied
me on the shoulder and said :
"There's only two of us here now."
I chunked a hasty glance over my
shoulder, but not a soul was there.
At least If there was a soul there the
body was iu aonu'txxly's graveyanl.
I thought of what Smith had said
about the haunted house. Not t be
routed at the first tire I resumed my
readiug. I'retty soon something
tapjHsl mo on the shoulder again
said : "There's only two of us lu re
"Yes, by Jingo! " I replied, "and
tho first tnlng you know there will
only le one of us" ami with that I
bolted. I covered half the distamt
to M ville In Nancy Hanks time
ami paused for Isreath. I was ex-
hvMMted, Isit hapsy in the thought
of being rid of the ghot. As I
caught my l-cath, sitting on a log on
the siik of the rood, 1 thought.
"Now-, was that really a ghost ?
when something tvst us on the
slioubivr, saying, " That was it
pretty hard rain you gave me, old
"Yes," says I, "aal if you monkey
around here I will give yon a Mother
one," and I lit out fi town, and if 1
