A Little Lesson
"A our object be our country, our
whole country, and no tiling but our
country." Daniel Webster.
Thu United States owes no 1cm of a
debt to the men who oHUblinhed a
government out of the chaos that In
tho revolution than

fought the battles
of liberty on the

No ouo saw more
clearly, or urged
Ri-rus KI50. tnoro zealously, the
want of a consolidated government
thnn did Ituftts King. He was one of
the most ardent of the Federalist, de
voting himself to upholding every act
of Washington. Ho collaborated with
Hamilton In several articles thnt ap-jK-ared
over the signature "Camlllus,"
King's unimpeachable honesty and
undoubted loyalty led to his nppoint
itietit to the post of minister to Eng
land. Ills mission bad to do chiefly
with the question of the right of
search. Through the unpleasantness
that finally culminated In the war of
ISt'.! King acted with discretion nnd
the mont earnest patrlotlKtu.
Although not at the outset an advo
cate of that war, nevertheless when It
was once declared he gave It his most
decided support. One of the Incidents
which marked hts attitude was his ap
pearance in New York nt. tho time
when a financial panic was threatened
and by his advice and example restor
ing confidence In the government.

W'hero this luxury of construction is

In tho pan a portable float Is ar
