T he T bi -S tates U nion weekly, is Issued THE FCXUBB OF OUK VILLAGE. The articles published in our issues of TVednesday and Thursday have found many readers and attracted considerable interest. The author whose identity, we believe, is quite generally known, de­ scribes a state of things which is pre­ sumed to exist in this village at the be­ ginning o f the next century. Irrespective of any ulterior purpcse, the wit and hu­ mor which characterize the articles render them eminently readable, and we trust that the versatile author will find time in the future to brighten our columns by many contributions of a like nature. It does not seem improbable to us that in writing a series of humorous articles descriptive of the future glories of the town with its fine buildings, electric street railways, perfect railroad facilities and all the other paraphernalia o f modern metro­ politan life, as contrasted with its present cor ditiOD,lhe author had a serious purpose, that he was actuated by a laudable desire to awaken in the minds of oar citizens a pi^per spirit of local pride, a sentiment Which has heretofore been non-existent in this town or has remained dormant, but which is very strong in Middletown, and . has made that place the aspiring and ag­ gressive little city that it is to-day. We have o f late years fallen in the rear of our neighboring city, not because o f any in- feriority of location or lack of natural ad­ vantages, but from the lack of public spirit and enterprise on the part of our own cilizins. With a Madden or a Low to encourage and stimulate local enter­ prises, and work for the town as though its prosperity were identified with their own, Port Jervis might speedily become the peer o£ Middletown, even if it fell sh o r t of t h e brillian t fu tu r e depicted by “ Old Chestnuts.” Precisely those conditions under which rapid grow th and im p rovem e n t will be­ come possible are now opening out before us in the completiou o f the F. J., M. and N. Y. railroad and its projected extension into the anthracite coal fields. It will certainly he our own fault if, with the advantages o f cneap coal and cheap trans­ portation at our command, we do not carve out for ourselves a future of sub­ stantial prosperity. EX C H A N G E TA C T ICS. The farmers o f the town o f Thompson rt cently held a meeting to talk over the milk busmess, in view o f the fact that the new railroad from Bummilville on the Ontario and Western to a point on the Monticeilo branch, proposes to establish a milk train at an early date. So far, well. But they listened to a Mr. Hopkins, who Tepresenta the N. Y. Milk Exchange, limited, and this charmer talked beauti­ fully to them, expatiating on the advan­ tages of dealing with that association. Our advice to Sullivan county farmers is “don’t.” Go into the milk business as soon as you please, but give the Milk Exchange and its emissaries a wide berth. They are the enemies of the milk pro­ ducers, and are only interested in the skinning process. There are plenty of other parties who will sell their milk and guarantee its payment, just as cheaply as the Exchange. It is not wise to play into the hands o f our enemies. THE SAME STORY. The Chicago Grocer’s Oriterion has the following to say of hog butter We have lived in Chicago for over twenty years, where a large proportion of the oleomargarine andbutterine supply of the world is produced, and we have never ind o\ ■' of these commodities e _ oiore in this City. Tons of it are P . sumed here. Where does it go to ? It goes into the hands of keepers o f hotels and restaurants whose guests imag­ ine they are eating butter and into the hands of dishonest grocers who sell it to consumers ft)r the genuine article. What an ac.::ui:8ed fraud it is ! How ean any man befriend it and not be ashamed to look honest people in the face ? The a j^le market abroad is badly de­ moralized and the past week American apples have sold in Liverpool at about the same price they would have brought in Kew York city. nature’s ways, whidi, they imply, helps to make them ashamed of belonging to humankind—that people talk of every season as if it were tbe first made and had a character of its own. The blase citizen of the world would have us believe that he despises, as the trashiest of small talk, babble of the weather and the aspect of the landscape. To speak of each recur­ ring spring-time as an event full of novel delight is banal; to lose one’s speech, and almost his senses in the Fata Morgana of an autumnal forest, triviality of afleeta- tion which is beneath contempt. Such critics have no charity for what is to their jaundiced visior the delirium of Christmas joy that has its incipient stage with the purchase of the first gift, and waxing into ecstasy with the budding and bursting glories of Christmas windows and Christmas decorations, through the suspenseful blisses of Christmas eve, reaches the crisis on the morning of the great birthday. Yet this non-responsive class are o f all men the most pitiable during the weeks that precede the glad celebration, and when the auspicious dawn has actually W e used to think it would never be here when we were children! Our infant imaginations could hardly span the awful gulf that separated one Chiistmas from another. The very long-sighted or strong- of-faith began to save pennies for the next by the time the exchequer was drained cf the last copper by the demands of that which had just passed. It helped us to believe that life might have in store for us another possibility as ravishing as “ next Christmas.” The ring of each coin (does tbe world ever witness holier hoarding ?) was the echo of the good time coming, and when, in the fullness of months, the guiltless breaking of the bank was an complished fact and the allotment made for each g i f t ; when the surreptitious shop­ ping, the delicious mysteries, the sacred deceptions; the toiling of tiny fingers upon useless but priceless pin-cushions, upon unwearable smoking-caps and pen­ itential slippers, went forward to the music of heart-heats, and we really dared say to our souls, sinking in a rapture cf awe and longing, “ Christmas is coming !” ah 1 when did painter or poet put all that upon canvas or paper ? Christmas is coming! A Christmas that will be like no other that has ever dawned, and like none we shall see again. Ho two were ever alike, and each is the beat that ever was. That is the children’s creed, and at this season the children are all in the right,the callous critics all in the wrong. A graver, sweeter phase of happiness com es to him w h o looks below t h e surface of the tumultuous joy the child does not fathom. It is not the thought of what he is to receive, but what he is to give that brings him most delight. Each Christ­ mas, with its preparations and surprises, is a course of training for the highest plane of human living. The men who decry as puerile the observance of the anniversary, and with a sort of strong-minded assump­ tion of superiority to popular weakness, flaunt the fact that “ we don’t make much account of Christmas at our bouse ’’—have surely never taken into consideration this branch of practical tuition in self-denial for others’ good, the study o f others’ hap­ piness, the cultivation of gi-nerosity in thought and deed. It is a factor in the work of the world’s regeneration. Thoie of n s - i t is one of the hopeful signs of the limes that the number increases stead­ ily —who do “ make much o f Christmas,” trace with leverent gratitude tbe analogy between the free and loving bestowal which is the preeminent feature of our Chief Festival, and the event it commem­ orates. To give up without compulsion, to give out of that which we have and prize, that others may be enriched, is to grow into Cbrist-likeness and Christlike hving. Ohris’.mas is an object-ltsson in the dili­ gent practice of noblest graces. The in­ terchange of gifts between friend and neighbor is a token of universai brother­ hood, a pledge of a common faith and nope. Nor, he it noted, is it the intrinsic worth o£ the present that constitutes value and significance. It is the act of giving —the passing <mr from hand of donor to that of recipient, of tbe things seen and temporal, which denotes the existence of that which is imseen and real. The heart that does not bound at the call, “ Christmas is coming!” is hopelessly sad or hopelessly selfish. As little chil­ dren, let us heaiken and be happy; as men and women who have fought, suf­ fered, lost and won battles of which our darlings do not, as yet—thank Qodl- dream, let us catch in the shout that is sounding around the globe, the echo— never quite spent in the world’s darkest middle-age, never so clear and thrilling in betore ia the earth’s history as on this Chiistmas eve—of the angel’s song “ Glory to God in the Highest I And on e arth peace among men of good-wiUI” —Marion Harland in Home-Maker.

So long as we pay for our imports by the es change of commodities it makes little difference if the balance is sometimes against us, but when we steadily draw on our reserves of gold the case is different. ” In the language o f Gilbert this is “ A paradox, a paradox, a most astounding paradox ”. So long as we pay by the exchange of commodities, the balance of trade is not against us and there will consequently be no exportation of gold. Again we find the following: The “ pauper”auper’’ laborabor of fertile India and “ p l ( the fertile plains of Hungary and_Kussia rheat into irope and drive farmer and his products. ingary i pour wheat int the granaries of Western Europe and drive out the American So you will acknowledge that there is pauper labor in Europe will you ? For months previous to election you were devot­ ing your best energies in trying to convince your readers that the laborers of Europe were in better condition than ours but now “ the soup” has washed out your eyes and restored your vision and you are willing to acknowledge the truth of what you so strenuously denied before election. Again we find this ; I and Central America would gladly with US, but it must he on as good i as Great Britain and Germany Do you know what the terms o f Great Britian are to her ship owners? Do you know that she pays a subsidy to each v es­ sel for each mile she runs ? Do you know that by pursuing that policy she has built up the largest merchant marine in the world ? Do you know that when John Roach Started bis line to Brazil that English subsidized! vessels put the rate so low that he could not do business and as soon as he withdrew they put the rates up to where they were before he began ? All this IS undoubtedly so, yet you tell us that subsidies will not help build up our mer­ cantile fleet. The Gazette article thus concludes: The remedy to which the Republioan party is pledged is increased taxation with free tobacco and whiskey. It will be Strange if we do not have a financial panic before 1892. As to this we beg to inform our friends down the street that the people at the polls decided that question last month and concluded to let a Republican President and Congress do the legislation and all the wails and pesslmatic views of the Gazette will avail nothing. —Rolled! plate jew e lry, cheapest a t Westbrook & Stoll’s. —We have still a splendid stock of newmarkets, children’s cloaks, etc., to select from and those wishing to purchase would do well to call at G.
