THE TEMPTATION OF A SURPLUS.
The republic of the United Stated
is becoming the most recklessly
spendthrift government on the earth.
The war-tariff defenders are in
great glee over the discovery that
the extravagance of congress is
likely to exhaust the current year’s
surplus within $18,000,000. “There
is no need for tax reduction,” they
cry, “this congress has spent this
year’s surplus;"' the next congress
can spend next year’s surplus—
away with the Mills bill.”
Do th«-people know what this
means? k
I It means that the appropriations
for the current year, made and esti­
mated, amount to the enormous
sum of $428,000,000. It means
that the politicians are willing and
able to spend all the money that
the people will pay in taxes—even
to the extent of $100,000,000 a year
in excess of the legitimate needs of
the government. And it means
that this purpose of expenditure is
the seized policy
In 1860, with a population of 31,-
000,000, the total expenses of the
government, including interest, were
$63,000,000, or $2 per capita. In
1887, ¿with 60,000,000 population,
the threatened appropriations are
$428,000,000, or $7 per capita. The
population lias barely doubled.
The expenses have increased almost
sevenfold.
—
The “condition that confronts us”
is national bankruptcy if this reck­
less extravagance be not stopped.
Over-protection ereates a surplus.
The surplus incites extravagance.
Extravagance'will lead to ruin. If
the voters do not wish to adopt ex­
travagance as the national policy
let them decree again that the war
taxes must be reduced.— New York

Johnson, the leper, lies in a room
off from the contagious ward. He
is hideous. His hands-and hairless
face are incrust^d with scale-like
blothes of reddish-brown. The face
shows most distinctly the ravages
of the horrible disease. The lower
lids of the eyes are drawn down and
turned inside out. The lips are
blue, an<J his nose is swollen to
twice its natural size. His back
and abdomen are covered with
huge tubercles. These scales slight­
ly change color frorf time to time.
There is no known remedy for
leprosy. It has for all time defied
the efforts of physicians. But one
important discovery has been made
of late years, and that is that the
disease is contagious, and is not
hereditary, as generally supposed.
The germ of the disease is known to
exist, and animals have been in- i
oculated, afterwards showing un-
mistakabie signs of the'malady,

leper’s suffering. Leprosy is a slow
disease, and Johnson may live for
even fifteen years. There ar^ two
forms of the disease—viz., black
leprosy and white leprosy. In the
former the Beales are dark and in
the latter perfectly white. Johnson
is suffering from the former. The
leprosy of the'ancient Jews con­
sisted of shiny smooth blotches on .
which the hair turned white and
silky, and the skin and muscular
flesh lost their sensibility. It was
incurable. It was not until about
the year 900 A. D. that the black
leprosy appeared. In time the toes
and fingers drop off, and when the
eating process reaches the vitals
death ensues.— Chicago Herald.
