Once upon a time a small boy took a largebag, and after dark wended liis way to a neighboring orcliard and tilled the bag with bis neiglibor's lucious red appies. But when tbe lad carne to carry tbe fruit home he found that he was unable to lift the bag. For a long time lie debatcd that to do, and fiaally bcthouglit liimself of a rope. This he took and tied around the bottom end of the bag and commenced bauling tbe apples home in that way. The farther lie went the lighter became the load, whkh lie in the exuberanceof his joy tliought was because of his growinjt strength. But alas, when daylight carne the lad found that one by one the apples had rollcd out of the top of the bag, and so had left a trail by which the owner of the orchard traced hls stolen fruit, fttid brought the young thicf to juslice. Sowltb the demociatic party to day. They have plucked a blfrger victory Ihuti they can manage, nud by 1892 they will liave it so nearly frittered away that the people will soandly thrash them ut the polls for thelr prcsuinption in 1S90.
