me, he ouiin hurriedly Into my room at the 
Hotel los Estrnngcros. His agitation was ill 
concealed. Throwing himsoir, full length, 
upon a bmitboo lounge, ho rested his bead in 
ono hand and looked fixedly at mo. This 
wo3 a uow phase of his recent singular be- 
havior. . . 

After a few moments, ho sprang to his 
feet, and began pacing the room. Then, snd- 
ilonly halting in his walk, he excitedly said; 

"I am .miserable! Pardon mo, sauor;-! owo 
you apology and explanation." 
■"Hoither," was my curt reply. 
Without seeming to notle'o qr care for tho 
manner of my interjection,- ho continued: 

"Ob, yea, Ido; for outwardly lam no longer 
tho man to whom you freely extended un 
honorable, sympathetic friendship. Meeting 
casually, os all earth's travelers do, tho pass- 
ing acquaintance has, with me, ripeuod into

preciate the bitterness of a necessity now 
forced upon mo or the heartache that cornea 
with it; but hero wo part. When you return

"What! "I osclaimed; "do you not intond

"To the River Plate cities? Not It is im- 
possible, sanor." 

"In turn, pal-don me," I said. ''But may 
I ask why this alteration in your former 
business plans!" 

' "Well," be responded, with soino hesitancy, 
as ho walked to a balcony window overlook- 
lag tho picturesque, starlit landscapa and the 
rugged mountain frowning cutr;mca to Kioa 
spacious harbor, "I ospoctol tout question, 
yet do not want to reply to it. I know how 
awkward this interview would be, but could 
iiot oinbark to-morrow for Lisbon and Liver-

"You certainly havo a right to withhold

"So, I cannot think it, Histoao whoa

A light broke upon me, Tbe mystery was 
bemg solved, and by an accidental friend of 
the family. . There were two Goorge Hamil- 
tOES^ and La Serena imagined tbat .she bad 
married the wrong one. It bad been my 
friend's father'a name, I knew. He bad one 
day told' mo that about the time of his father's 
death, la Mossnchasetts, the name had been 
adroitly used by a swindler in South iimerir.

ing tlipmgh m huge, dense beak of clouds. 
1 Itad become almost childish in my imp** 
tionc«. The Lmtdon mail had come hi. A 
copy of Th«. Dally Telegraph, nearly five 
weeks' old, had been torn from Its wrapper. 
X picked It up, and glanced here and th*r* 
through its news columns. This paragraph 
burntintomy brain: - 

George -fuMtklneoa. alias HnmUtou, who, aereral 
years ego. committed a series of aatouiHUng Ipr- 
Kertes on a nnmher of South American bankers, 
has Imen arrested la Binninghsin. Ills identity 
ims been fully establiatied. 

Joyously was tho birth of another year 
proclaimed fay tbe chimes of Harris. Peal 
after peal roso and swelled and died away in 
the echoes of a bustling town. Big and little, 
rloh and poor, Montevideo's ono hundred 
thousand wero in holiday attire. Tim broad 
harbor was a sea of color. Flags and stream- 
ers fluttered 'every where. At S o'clock I 
joined a party at the "mole," and was rowed 

out to the Narcissus. Lieut. 8 cordially 

wolcomed mo at tho gangway. . Scarcely had j 
X stepped on board when he said : 

"Jocelyn and his friend are in the ward- 
room. Let us look at Mr. Qeorgo at once i" 
"Agreed," said I, as I followed him across 
the deck. 

Before we had gone ten paces there was a 
cry from tho water. A pleasure boat had 
been capsized by a sudden flaw of wind. 
Help was close at band, bat there was too 
much of it. Tbreo persons were seen cling- 
. ing to the boat Then the waves parted, and 
'nwoman'sheadandarmheoamevisible. Sho 
clutched wildly at the air and sank- again. 
At that moment I missed Lieut. S-— , who-' 
had been watching tho scene with keenest in- 
terest. He had swung h itn ** lf dowu tho side 
of the Narcissus and was swimming toward 
tlio unfortunates. But another aud more 
powerful stroke was in advance of the in- 
trepid Englishman. How my heart beat! 
Again tho woman's head showed above tho 
water's surface. I turned away my face., It 
■was . La Serena, drowning, within reach of 
uittuynnnsof etecl,

There wasn't a ^ery successful He w Year's 
banquet in the ward rooitt of the Narcissus, 
but everybody seemed Battened. No lives had 
been lost. There was a daring deed to be

There are ft good many notlom loil jt 

Nobody believed, for example, that 
all women wear tight shoss. 

That all oltib man drink too much 
and don't go home Sill morning, 

That the children of fashionable 
people are no"* well taken oars of. 

That all boarding house tables are 
bad.i ■ t 

: That all women wear tight stays. 

That all women lay the seeds for 
rapid eonatimption by getting their 
petticoats wet on rainy days. 

That all women are Jealous of each 

That all women are underpaid. 

That'all minoe pies are Indigestible, 

That a little candy is unhealthy. 

That your way is the right way, 
and ujftte is the wrong. 

.Nobody believes any of these things 
except the people who live such nar- 
row lives that they think nothing 
good liaises they approve of it.

kindly acknowlMjg« : lte;arror,; 

Tfae population of tiw tJnltad States 
inorMaiNl from tSTi 38S0 about IS 
mllllotisor nearly one-third the wool- 
en mills with very high protection in- 
creased tUefr total product only 8 per 
cent; tills is certainly not a good show 
lng for protaetlon. 

Great Brltaa offers good proof- of 
the truth of the proposition that free 
wool would not Injure the wool grow^ 
Or. 8h«' h«s put no taxes on Import- 
ed wool for many years and on an 
aiea less than one-half that of the 
state of Texas alone has 84 million 
sheep (my athority for this is John- 
son's Oyolopedla edition of 1894.) 

Tlie' United States had by the oen 
sus of 1880 only W million sheep. 

The Patriot says, when we produce 
enough of any particular thing to 
supply the home demand then it 
needs no protection. This Is quite a 
change of opinion since the time of 
the last campaign when It was urging 
farmers to vote for protection and 
telling them how necessary it was for 
them to have a protective tariff on 
their wheat, corn, oheese etc. How it 
says they do not need any protection, 
because It fa true of them as well as of 
cotton, that enough Is produced for 
home use- 

The Idea tbat because worklngmen 
in the United States are paid more 
per day than workingmen in most 
other countries and that consequent- 
ly their labor to do a given piece of 
work, Is more costly, can not be prov- 
en, On the eontary we have good and 
undisputed evidence; to show that in 
the two most Important lines of man- 
ufaaturiiig, nainely: taxtiles and iron, 
the labor cost Is no greater here than 
In England or Germany therefor free 
trade would not close our f rotoriefl or 
shops. ■■■■■■-" 

That tree trade does not reduce 
wages has been clearly proven In 

Mr. llobt. Giffen who is an author- 
ity shows the large advance In wages 
gatnud by Bngliflh workers in the 
last So years since the adoption of 
partial free trade, the reason for the 
pauperism and lower wages of Eng- 
land, Is not free trade but her system 
of land monopoly which allows a 
small minority of her people to absorb 
the largest share of the wealth pro- 
duced but which the landlords do 
nothing to learn, the ^English people 
are siinpiy robbed of a part of their 
earoitigs-- ■ 

If our tariff oould be abolished so 
that we might trade freely with all 
the world, our naturaX advantages' 
are&o many »d ability 

;h ess' men 
so great, w might easily become the 
greatest manufacturing county of the 
world. B.C.Eogere.

Thore are a good many notions long 

Nobody believed, for example, that 
all Women wear tight dhoei. 

That all eltib men drink too much 
and don't go boms till morning, 

That the children of fashionable 
people are not well taken care of. 

Thut all boarding houete tablet are 

That all women wear tight itaya. 

That all women lay the seeds for 
rapid consumption by getting their 
pettlooatH wet on rainy days. 

That all women are jealous of eaob 

That all women are underpaid. 

That all tutnoD pies are indigestible. 

That a little candy is unhealthy. 

That your way 1b the right way, 
and inlhe is the wrong. 

Nobody believes any of these thlngi 
except the people who live euoh nar- 
row Uvos that they think nothing 
good unless they approve of it.

The population of th* tTnitad - States

millions or nearly ohe-tliird the wool. 
u mills with very high protection in- 
creased their total product only a por 
e*nt.thlsis oertalnly not a good show- 
ing for protection. 

Qreat Brltan off/era good proof, of 
the truth of the proposition that free 
wool would not injur* the wool grow- 
er. She' has put no taxes on import- 
ed wool for many years and on »n 
area leas than one-half that of the 
statu of Texan alone ha" 84 million 
sheep (my athority for this la John- 
son 1 * Cyclopedia edition of 1890.) 

Tho' United State* had by the oon 
hub of 1880 only 85 million aheap, 

Tho Patriot e&ya, when we produce 
enough of any partinular thing to 
supply the home demand then it 
needs no protection. This is quite a 
chunge of opinion ainoe th* time of 
the last campaign when it was urging 
fanners to vote for protection and 
telling them how neoeaaary It was for 
them to have a protective tariff on 
their wheat, corn, cheese eto. Now it 
Bays they do not need any protection, 
because It is true of them as well as of 
cotton, that enough is produced for 
home nee. 

The Idea that because workingmen 
In tho United States are paid more 
per day than workinginen in most 
other countries and that oousequent- 
ly their labor to do a given piece of 
work, la more ooatly, cannot be prov- 
en, On the contary we have good and 
undisputed evidence; to show that in 
the two most important lines of raan- 
ufaeturing, namely: taxtilee and iron, 
the lubor coat is no greater here than 
in England or Germany therefor free 
trade would not oloae our frotoriea or 

That tree trade does not reduce 
wages has boen dearly proven in 

Mr. llobt. GHffen who is an author- 
ity ehows the large advanoo in wages 
gained by English workers in the 
laBt SO years since the adoption of 
partial free trade, the reason for the 
pauperism and lower wages of Eng- 
land, is not free trade but her system 
of land monopoly whioh allows a 
small minority of her people to absorb 
the largest share of tho wealth pro- 
duced but Which the landlords do 
nothing to learn, the English people 
are simply robbed of a part of thelv 

If our turiff could he abolished so 
that wemight trade freely with all 
the world, our natural advantages 
are so ma ny and the skill and ability 
of Our meohaulos and bUBibess' men 
so greats we might easily become the

attend cmirch was Secretary, Tracy. All 
the cabinet families Bpent the day very 
quietly, eave that of Secretary Bust who 
had such of the Wisconsin Congressmen 
as happened to be in town at dinner in 
the evenfog. 

Quite a number of Congressmen spent 
t be day In the city, not feeling able to-. 
spare the time to go housed A~ 
great many, including Senators Chand- 
ler and lugalle, had their entire 
families with them. 

The anoient social argument about 
the order of precedence in the .TeeeiWng 
line at the White House receptions haa 
revived for tho winter, and is now be 
ug waged with all. the weapons of 
wordy warfare. The occasion is found 
In Hra. Harrison „ appointment of her 
daughter, Mrs, MoKee; to represent her 
at the Mew Year's reception, as she her- 
ssif wilt bo obliged to be absent in view 
of the recent deathof Mrs, Seott-Iiord.

honor in the enforced absence of the 
PieSident'a wire belongs to the. Vice.- 
President's 'wife. They go further in 
saying that. Mrs. -McKeVs husband hav- 
ing no place in offlolal life, she ianot 
entitled to the recognition. 

Another row is raised by the provision' 
for receiving the Judgea of the Supreoae 
court of the District of Columbia with 
the JusticQof the tTnUed States Suner- 
rior Court, while Senators snd Rf pre".

On the very last fraiii to ry people.- 
oiit for theChristmas holidays Was Sen-

throng of young people, the old rmih 
cronched far down in his chair silent 
and listless. On the hook above his 
head danced his ancient sUk hat, look-

■ In August lttBt B. E. Phillips' drug 
store was badly damaged by fire. 
The stock was also damaged by fire 
and water. After a settlement had 
been reached with the insurance com- 
panies Mr. Phillips proceeded to close 
out his damaged stock, and b'v liberal 
advertising the people in thiss' viciui- 
ty knew where to go to get drugs, 
proprietory medicines, &c, at a re 
markably low figure. The goods dis 
appeared like snow flakes on a warm 
day, and he then turned his attentior 
to rebuilding and remodeling hii 
store whieh is. now completed and 
stands on First street an ornament to 
the locality and tbe village. A plate- 
glass front and doors of the latest 
at-yle and finish form the front of the 
store, while within everything is io 
keeping with the external appear- 
ance. New show eases, counters, 
box drawers ahd wood work through- 
out is Been on either side, while a set 
bottles of the finest Bioko adorn the 
shelves. The entirely new and large 
stock of drags and medicines is up 
with Mr. Phillips' established reputa- 
tion, and having no old stock he can 
justly claim to have tho finest estab- 
lishment ot the kind in this locality. 
Straight goods carefully prepared is 
what is wanted, and this is what you

At the annual meeting held on 
Charter Election day last March the 
sum of $l,70Q was appropriated for 
streetlighting.' This fund.ii exhaust- 
ed or will be on the llth day of Janu- 
ary. As we understand it the Board 
o' Trustees have not this power to en- 
ttrjliito an agreement to continue the 
street lighting for a short time or un- 
til next Charter Election unless thsy 
are willing to become personally re- 
sponsible that the company wfil be 
paid. This, we understand, they do 
not care to do. 

They however have tho legal power 
to make a contract for a year, and 
this is what they should do in our 
opinion if a contract could be made 
at the figures which are now being! 
paid. This, we think, would be en- 
tirely ■satisfactory to a large majority 
of tax-payers within, the oorporatibn. 
The priiie tlm'irijiage:^ now paying is 
f 47 a ligb^ per ^ear ^r-tt Hghts.mak- 
ing a to 141 of $^803 jfor twelvemonths' 
street lighting. The' price is reasona- 
ble compared with, the prises paid in 
other places for arc lights, and it is 
the only kind of street bgbtlng that 
will ever be satisfactory. We cannot 
afford to be without lights atthis sea- 
of tbe year, and the mttrmars 
about town to the effect that lights 
wiil be secured from another source 
slower figure originated from the 
babbling of an official who in the 
iiassic language of the ancients is 
termed a "sore head;" The Board 
wiil probably consider the question at 
ts meeting this evening. ■

the next to respond. Heseemedvery 
««ply| impressed with the import- 
attee of the oeeetfon t aaying that it 
*as quite possible that he should 
never appear again before those as- 
sembled, and therefore acespted the 
opportunity of speaking a word for 
Jesus Christ to those who! have not 
accepted Him as their Saviour. 

R»v. Dr. Rankin followed in a moat 
exeellent address, dwelling more «- 
peeiallyopona.-few of the dangers 
Hkely to be met with, and offered 
words of kindly warning. He spoke 
against the danger of a spirit 61 critl. 
cism 1. e. becoming dissatisfied and 
critical if the coming evangelist in his 
personal appearance, manner or con- 
duct of the meeting", it not up to an- 
ticipations, alio he referred to the 
danger of the other two denomina- 
tions remaining away when the meet- 
ings are held at the church of the 
other, layihgspecialemphatison the* 
necessity of attendance upon all, no 
matter in which church held. One or 
two other points were dwelt upon in 
an. equally able mann«r, all being 
timely, practical and to the point. 

The last to address the meeting was 
Rev. J. O. Breaker, who in bis utual 
able and eloquent manner spoke of 
the need of more activity, more prac- 
tical christian living, iess prayer for 
the Holy spirit to come upon us, who 
he declared to be among us, already 
here. He is a thorough believer in 
prayer and its power, but laid stress 
upon the Importance of each prof su- 
ing Christian being up and doing. 
In a few well chosen remarks and 
quoting God's word as authority he 
spoke of the certainty of eternal pun- 
ishment to those who die without the 
redemption that is in the blood of 
Jesus Christ. He is a thorough be- 
liever in what he preaohse and 
preaehei what he belierea. 

Rev. Chase addtdafsw brief words, 
a number of selections ware sung 
from Gospel Hymns No. during the 
evening, and after a closing one Rev^ 
Dr. Rankin was called upon to pro-

Mn»s, H they say, "but w# do not want t» ba

tbe most radical admit tlutt thaoonservattvss 
are doing much to prepare; schools, cattrcfees 
and newejsapert are fairly alwadant, and the 
progress of the Cherokee* laadneatloei and 
property Is quite enoowraglag. Hut, say ttie 
oenservatives, if we cease to bold land in

allow white nten tw settle o« the rest, the 
poorer class of Indians will soeu lose their

of the land, and aa soon as they have sf ma- 
jority in tho new state they will oppress as in 
a thousand ways by petty enctlons aud in- 
tricate laws. Give ns mora ttma." 

And thfe has been the pleaof tbeCherokees 
line* 1785, when they made their first treaty 
with tlio new American republic At the 
close oil tho revolutionary war a large num- 
ber of tliom peoplo in North and South Caro- 
lina who were stigma tfawd as Tories, hat are 
more politely referred to in British Wstory •■ 
"United Empire Loyalists," orosssd the 
mountains and toonted ABWBg th» Cherokeea 
They were men ot ability ft** good character, 
largdy Bcotoh In blood ahd Presbyterian In 
leHgkm; they est np looms, mUla, scJjooJsaiiid 
chnrobes in "Cbsrekee 5 OeargiA, M attd with 
their aid the already progressive Cherokeea 
progressed «o rapidly that byl«9 they h*^ a 
tolerably well organhted g^rreriMnant, with 
written laws. May «, 1817, delegates from 
flfty-four towns convened, and a written 
eoneUtntioo was adopted. Kver since the 
Cherokeea have been a "nation." 

The white) man pressed upon them and 
tftey began to move westward. Then come 
that remarkable national debate m which 
congressmen argued long about tho national 
rights of the Cfterofcees, orators depicted 
tlwlr wrongs and'poeto sang of their primi- 
tive virtues. It ended in the expulsion of all 
the tribe from Georgia and adjacent states, 
and in 1830 they reorganised their nation in 
the Indian territory. From die Tennessee in 
Carolina to the Tennessee in AlabomA tho 
local names testify of their former presence— 
Chickamauga and Chattanooga, Etowah and 
Councseuga, Kenesaw and Oostenaula, Since 
their first treaty with the United States after 
the constitution vras adopted— it bears the 
honored signature of GJoorgo WaJshlngtoii— 
jkeyhavo coded «J ,000,000 acres of land and 
have but 7,000,000 loft. Yet the clamorous 
cry of tho white man ia for "moroi" 

In 1800 tl» 13,000 Chorokees formed, per 
haps, the richest rural community In the 
United States. It was estimated that their 
livo stock, at current rates, would have

ateiitheKew Year and it« twonty- 
ninth birthday with nn entirely new 
dreei. Brother Humphries In to b« 
congratulated on tboilnc appearance 
that his paper presents and the abili- 
ty with which ho has conducted it 
daring the time that another local 
pnpor existed and nindo ntroufr, efforts

AN exehango eaye that ono third of 
the fools in the country think thoy can 
bent a lawyer In expounding H»o law. 
One-half think thoy can boat the doc- 
tor healing the stele. Two thirds of 
tbem think they eau put tlio Diintetor 
In a hole preaching tho gospel; and 
'all of them think thoy can boat tho 
editor running a ne wspaper. 

It la apparently a fact that wharf- 
age ifl exhorbltant and elevator charg- 
es on canal grain extortionate atNow 
York and Buffalo. These excessive 
charges arc detrimental to a large 
ntnnber of persona in Pulton and vi- 
cinity who make their living out of 
boating. To fludy»ut what can be done 
about fcbia and how to remedy the 
«vil, the Canal and Harbor Protec- 
tion Union of N. Tl. state have called 
a Mass Meeting to be held at Cooper 
Institute N. Y. onFHday[Jan.24when 
addresses will be made by prominent 
speakers. Tide meeting will be of es- 
pecial interest to boatman who gen- 
erally look in vain for relief from ex- 
tortions that makes their Hcanoji'tj 
work unprofitable. 

The Board of Supervisors complet- 
ed their work at Oswego last Satur- 
day and adjourned sine die. Volney's 
representative, W. B. Howard lias 
been particularly active in looking 
after the county's b.% well aa tho 
town's interest. He has laid out a 
course in regard to assessment of 
personal property that if dilligently 
followed will produce a satisfactory 
result to the masses. One of the 
last committee reports adopted by 
tlie Board was the following: 

Mr.Howardtfrom the committee to 
consult with the county treasurer In 
relation to fundinc tho floating In- 
debtedness reported that Indebted- 
ness at about $70,000. Tlio 
coinmittoe recommended bonds to the 
Amount of $7,000 to b*> paid In ten in- 
BtaUments. He eaid.that the debt 
could be funded at 3 or 8j per cent. 
The committee also reported the 
proper form of tho bonds and direct- 
ed the clerk and county treasurer to 
formulate a petition to the legislature 
to procure tlio passnge of an enabl-

the mystery, but I think I have dono so. 
It" was by reading your Shakespeare, 
madamo. You look astonished, but it is 
true. I nin much indebted to yoter 
ShaJUeapeare," naid Mmo. Valois. "What 
a wonderful man ho was! It vraa 
while reading bis plays that I solved 
a problem that has puzzled many gener- 
ations of our fumily. You remember 
what ho ciaid: 

" 'Likeatoad, ugly and venomous,otiH 
hides a precious jewel in his head.*" 

"My necklace, I am assured, fa modo 
of those jewels that ore mentioned by 
your Shakespeare. I will toll you my 
reasons for thinking go: 

"You must know that I have in Avi- 
gnon a very old yet still very pretty cha- 
teau which I now lease to an American. 
"A hundred and fifty years ago our 
family resided there, and ono day a Va- 
loia brought home ■ to the chateau a very 
gay and pretty Parisian wife. Mmo. 
Valois, coming a young bride to her hus- 
band's chateau in Avignon, thought it 
gray and gloomy, and felt that, after 
Paris, it was very stupid. To be sure, 
there was a great garden, but it was eo 
infested with toads that at first her walks 
among the borders always ended in her 
ilying homeward in an agony of terror, 
crying out that the little wretches wero 
too disgusting to endure. 

"One day, however, aa she sat upon a 
bench beside an old stone fountain she 
heard close to her a little singing noise 
and saw squatting close beside her on the- 
bench a little toad. It ant quite still and 
made this littlo plaintive musical sound 
continually. Its eyes were fixed upon 
her and she noticed that they Were very- 

" 'Poor little thing/ she said to herself . 
'Really, it looks hungry.' And,having& 
little cake in her pocket, she crumbled it 
upon the bench. 

"The toad looked at her as she did so, 
and when Bhe 3aid kindly: 

" 'There, Toady, is your breakfast,' &6 
hopped forward, and eat every crumb. 
Then it did a strange thing. It sat upon 
its haunches and touched its fore feet to 
its forehead as an Oriental does to make 
an obeisance, and hopped away. 

"The next day Mme. Valoie awoke 
thinking of the toad, and whenever she 
eat anything she liked very much she 
saved some bits, saying Toady would like 
that, and at sunset she went t£ the foun- 
tain, carrying a basket, and sat down 
upon the old bench. 

"Not five minute^ had she been seated 
there when Bhe heaxd the soft, singing 
sound, and there spiting to the benoh be- 
side her the toad she had fed the day be- 
fore and four of theWost charming little 
toads any ono over saw, evidently S£mo. 
Toad's family. " 

"She eat in the middle with two on 
each side of her, and they eat thecnimbs 
Mme. Valois gave them, and when all 
were gone Mme. Toad made a saluta- 
tion as on the first occasion, and hopped 
away backward as people are expected 
to retire from the royal presence, and 
Mme, Valois went home and wrote in 
■ her journal— which is preserved to this 
day~ail the parHculara I have recounted 

'VSh© was now quite in love with Mmo. 
Toad, and every day slie went at tho 
same boar to feed the littlo creatures. 
She was very young and very much 
afraid of her husband^ who was a very 
grave, elderly ^ man, and did not liko 
nonsense, so she did not tell him any- 
thing about all this, but .kept tho secret 
for her diary until winter came. Then 
indeed she was obliged to confide tho 
matter to her maid, for the dearth of in- 
sects caused a famine ' among the toads, 
or so she supposed, for when «ho went to 
the fountain hundreda of themcamo and 
squatted about her with pleading looks 
m their little bottle Bhaped eye*, and all 
their oringlyV'

ChWMid by a Dwr. 
The earjy settlers, of Illinote hunted 
deer not only to obtain venison, but to, 
Iirotact their corn. The deer would eat 
the corn from the cob,withoat tearing 
oif the husk or breaking down thostallca, 
so that what looked h'ke a fine field of 
corn might yield scarcely a kernel. 

The hunters usually went on horse- 
back, and when a deer was killed, it waa 
a common practice to tie it to the horart 
tail, and In this manner drag it home. 
A story which is told of Nicholas Jones 
is a rather remarkable oue, but is con- 
firmed by old settlers in Money Crock, 

Sir. Jones was ono dayoa a hunt in 
tho timber, and shot a deer in the nock 
and stunned it, Not having a butcher 
knife, ho neglected to kill it, but tied it 
to his mate's tail and started homeward. 
He had gono only a- few steps across 
Money creek, when his maro stopped, 
and Jones felt a jerk. 

booking around, he saw that the buck 
had come to life, and at that moment 
waa trying to goro the mare with its 
antlers. He whipped the maro Into a 
gallop, and did not allow her to slacken 
her pace for an instant all tho way 
home, for fear of thooo menacing horns 
in tho rear. 

A farm wagon stood, in his clearing 
near the house. Ho ran the horse in a 
circle around the wagon, shouting mean- 
while to his wife: "Jane, Jane, fetch the 
butcher knife, the butcher imffe!" 

Jane was afraid to approach very 
near, and Jones dared notstop just then, 
eo tho race around tbo wagon continued. 
At length tho deer's horns became en- 
tangled in the wagon wheel, and the 
huntsman was quick to seize the. ad- 
vantage, and quickly dispatched Hie 
buck. — Youi" " ~

The remarkable fact was discovered 
that in canals and rivers the micro-organ- 
isms slowly subside. The water of the 
Thames .yielded 690 colonies per drop 
J near the surf ace, and 8,760 colonies per 
drop close to the bottom. At Sunbury 
there were found in a sample which was 
taken above some black rand no less 
than 280,000 colonies per drop. But in 
the sea water round the coast of England 
the organisms aro more, numerous near 
the surf ace. Samples titken off the old 
pier at Brighton In July wore found to 
yield 780 colonies per drop near the Sur- 
face, and only 10 at the bottom. : The 
water supplied to London by the Middle- 
Bex and Grand Junction companies.varied 
in purity according to the season. In 
May a drop contained 7 germs, in July

that a snake was seen and killed at

On Monday evening, next McCar- 
thy & Reynolds* company will pre- 
sent tho Irish Comedy drama. "The 
Dear Irish Boy" at the opera house. 
In speaking of the play the N. Y. 
Times says: 

'Dan McCarthy, of -"True Irish 
Hearts" fame, brought out a «ew 
play. "The Dear Irish Boy," atthe 
Windsor on Monday night. It Romp- 
ed at once into success. "The Dear 
Irish Boy" is built uppn somewhat 
familiar Hibernian lines. It is full of 

it and song, bag pipes and dances, 
and a vein of pathos runs through— 
inaword, it is a rollicking Irish play. 
Dan McCarthy enacts the hero,- and 
he is ably supported by Mr. Gus 
Reynolds, who is classed as being one 
of the best character actors in the 
profession, and in this play he sub- 
sains his reputation, for bis imper- 
sonation of McClutcney was a piece 
of acting eeldam seen on any stage, 
and he deserved the well earned ap- 
plause he received. ■ Reynolds is sim- 
ply immense." 

Misa Jane Coombs the well known 
actress will be at the opera house, 
Saturday evening next. The Cincin- 
nati Commercial of recent date 
speaks as follows of the actress and 
her play. 

"Miss Jane Coombs appeared last 
night as L 'Lu,dy Dedlock'? and "Hor- 
tense" in Charles Dickens' Bleak 
House, to a large audience and gave 
as Lady Dedtock one of the most 
finished, artistic and beautiful per- 
formances of female characters that 
has ever been Seen on our stage. In 
the impassioned scene in the third 
act she reached the most intense ex- 
pression of passionate aciing and re- 
ceived an enthusiastic recall after the 
fourth act when she disclosed her 
identity to her child, the audienee 
was moved to tears for> the repentant 
mother. Miss Coombs' regal beauty, 
magnificent voice and exquisite graee 
captured every heart in the large au- 
dience. As Hortense the revengeful 
lady's maid, Miss Coombs achieved a 
distinct success, playing it with all 
the abandon of a French woman who 
when goaded to desperation by Tul- 
kinghorn, deliberately plans and ac- 
complishes bis murder. The sup- 
porting company was very fine and 
gave such representations as will not 
be forgotten. The interest in the 
piece was sustained to a close; it is 
surprising that so much of the story 
could be so well told.

Tho river itself, guarded by theso dusky 
people, ia not only ift famous waterway, but 
a niagniflootit river, bonutif til in Hoeuoryns 
well. Tho picturesque* Rhine, according to 
Stanley, is only a microscopic, miniature) of

Bteamora with wino and food and other ac- 
commodations to emable tho- traveler to boo 
its beauties properly. As for tho Father of 
Waters — the Mississippi— tha Congo in one 
and a half times lontfor and from eight to ton 
times broader. Along any of the numorons 
channels of tho African river the traveler 
will iseo nioro beauty nnd variety of vegeta- 
tion than on the bunks of tho Mississippi. 
Besides, thorn ore its crocodiles, its, hippopot- 
ami, ite elephants, its buffaloes (red end 
white), its parrots, its flocks of ibw, and other 
picturesque objeete to iond interest and 
grandeur. The traveler in Central Africa fa 
not, howover, confined to water routes ex- 
clusively, and rrtion ho travoreea tho regions 
occupied by friendly tribes the hammock 
affords a pleasant and easy mode of "doing" 
tho tropical region. Knowlodgo of tho iu-_ 
terior is gained by hammock traveling, and 
the sick are often transported in thin manner. 
Some of Clio most interesting features of a 
journey up tho river Congo are tho Beetles in 
tho interior, but often the eyo rests upon 
them alongshore. Such is tho village shown 
in tho Illustration— drawn from a sketch by 
Herbert Wav& for Tho Illustrated London 
News— a settlement of tho lln-yniissl. From 
tha water Is seen a broad Inyo leading up to a 
grove of oil palms and bananas, with com- 
pact and tidy lor>lriujr houses interspersed 
Among thoni, The pooplo are described by 
Johnston, tho naturalist, asilnor looking than

The Ba-yaaai have certain cruel customs, 
but are in many respects much superior to 
some other natives of the great river. They 
mnko pottery, knives, hatchets and articles 
of furniture,- and trado with neighboring 
tribes, They aro fond of music and have a 
native instrument of tho dulcimer class. 
They are also clover ushorinoa and cultivate 
iruits, vegetables, tobacco and other prod- 

- nets. According to ethnologists tho Ba- 
yauziaronot of the negro race, but belong 
to tha "BautuV family. They are well shaped 
■and tall, as may bo seen in tho cat, the fig- 
ures hnyiug been photographed by Mr, Her- 
bert Word, for whom tho subjects posed with 
considerable interest. Those people usually 
dress their hair, which is of great Strength, 
docoratively, especially tho warriors, who 
twist it into weird, horn like shapes, 

Fvr nil their peaceful measures and rela- 
tions of comity with tho usher tribes, it wiil 
ha Ki»en that tho Arab mariners travel well 
armed. The regions bordering on the river 

. -a^i inhabited by tribes that may or may not 
resent the incursion of the stranger. Tho 
dangers to be encountered by explorers and 
traders do not always eomofrom muscular

of bark and holding thirty or forty gallons. 
Everybody k free to drink everybody else's 
beer ay long as it lasts, and in a fow days tho 
fruits of many weeks of toil aro consumed. 
The beer does not oieito quarrels, no it is 
chiefly Bomiiolent. 

In October tho land is spaded for tho next 
crop. Tho chief himself often goes to tho 
fields in his litter, accompanied by Ids mu- 
sicians, and watches tho long files of Ids sub- 
jects at thoir labors. Ho inspires groat fear 
among his people, for his govern mont is so- 
vero, although ho doea not employ torture ns 
a means of punishment. Tho death penalty 
is inflicted for grave crimes, but not for acta 
of sorcery, as In most parts of snvago Africa. 
Ilero nnd tlioro ono sees groups of ton or 
twelve men fastened togathor with an Iron 
chain while working;, in the 'fields. They wo 
thus punished for minor offend'. 

Unlike many important African rulers, 
Uoahido lias no body of counselors, but gov- 
erns unaided, listeria to all whocomo to him, 
and, in the missionary's opinion, Ills decisions 
aro usually just and good. Cases aro submit- 
ted to him wherever ho may he, and at ail 
hours of tho day. ' In -transacting business 
with his people ho has around htm none of the 
notables or Bub-chiefs of his country, but only 
his pages and women, and ho will not tolorato 
tho presence of persons who attend simply to 
listou to the proceedings. Unless they have 
business with him be. sends thorn quickly on 
their way. 

The balm ami peace which roign ia tho 
country, Mr. Arnot says, aro quito remarka- 
ble, it is ouly, however, because Hoshide's 
people aro for stronger than their neighbors, 
who lead anything but a peaceful existence. 
Moshido often sends out expeditions against 
his neighbors for tho sola purpose of plunder. 
The men aro killed, their women and chil- 
dren are drasgod iuto captivity and their 
ivory is soised. 

Mrs. Hove recently*''" ioto from-Lako Tnn- 
gauyiki that tho ovU?,.,o£ tho-.'slavo trade, 
ns tho world sees them along tlio coasts, are 
trifling compared with tho miseries inflicted 
upon scores of unfortunate tribES. by the in- 
ternal slave trade. Mosbide'a slavo c 
vans aro sent (nmdreds of miles west to 
Bihe. Arabs who have reached his country 
also purchase, many of his captives. As all 
his human spoils aro women and children, 
the females of Garenganse largely outnum-

led on to tho scaf- 
fold, and, kneeling 
i'beforo the "block," 
laid hia neck upon 
It, and tho heads- 
man revered tho 
head with one blow 
of tho as. This was altogether too respecta- 
ble a method for ono who hail stolen a sheep 
and (n that case tho offender was swung off 
by tho iiigthod in vogue today. 

The day has doubtless passed when people 
may ho executed in the United States for 
'anything except tho lower order of crimes. 
President Uneoln, at tho close of tho civil 
war, inaugurated a new departure in not 
prosecuting tlio Confederate leaders, and tho 
precedent ho thou established will doubtless 
stand. This leaven capital punishment only 
for murderers, and in many of tho states 
there is no death penalty whatever; while. in 
U>i electric execution tho condemned at least 
escapes whatever of Ignominy attaches to a 
felon's death by evading tho gihbofc, 

Ono visiting almost any modern manufac- 
turing establishment today will eso the mo- 
tive power by which Kemmler is to bo ex- 
ecuted. This is nn ordinary dynamo. The 
accessories, such as the "fatal lover" and tho 
"chair of death," aro reserved for prisons. 
There, when a prisoner is to bo executed, ho 
is led In to the execution room by thoso in 
charge and is placed upon the chair of death, 
to which he is strapped. A wire leads to hia 
head and wires to his toes. The current la 
put through the wires and death comes eo 
speedily that tho victim feelo no pain what- 
ever. That is to say, this is the opinion of 
those favoring electrocution. The opponents 
thereof hold that it is at least possible that 
much torture will result. Recent experi- 
ments have, however, resulted in instan- 
taneous death to various domestic animals. 

DyiTAHQ at AtTEtnsrr, 
Thus far there has been a eousiderabla 
effort to prevent linemen and others being 
killed by tho .electrlo current, and on equal 
effort on the part of prosecuting attorneys to 
bo permitted to kill Kemmler. Yet a largo 
number of people have died accidentally, 
wlulo Kemmler, who baa been duly convict- 
ed and sentenced, to death, still remains olive. 
Ko court has thus for stood between an inno- 
cent citizen and a fallen wire charged with 
death current, Tho court of appeals still 
stands between Kemmler and tho chair of 
death. If this fails him ho will famish tha 
fli-st case of death by what may bo called tho 
Nineteenth century method. 

There is at least ono thing advantageous to 
the condemned in this process over hanging. 
In the latter he is compelled to stand upon 
his feet at a moment when there would nat- 
urally come a noryous sinking, in the for- 
mer ho Is Buffered to redine comfortably, and 
in his position somewhat resembles a man in 
a barber's chair, tbo posture suggesting what 
is often seen in a barber shop— a "shave'' ami 
a "shine" at the same time. This is certainly 
a more humane method of compelling him to 
meet death than by forcing him to stand till 
the last moment during the harrowing de- 
tails aud then jerlring him into.tbo air.

The January number of the NORTH 
American Review will be rendered 
memorable by one of the most bril- 
liant features which have ever ap- 
peared in an American periodical. 
This is & discussion between tho Rt. 
Hon. W. E, Gladstone and Hon. J. 
G. Blaine on the Tariff, Mr. Glad- 
stone advocating Free Trade and Mr. 
Blaine Protection Whatever can be 
said on one side and the other of this 
subjeot will be eaid in those urtlolws 
in the -most telling and impressive 
way by these two great masters of 
controversy. Mr. Gladstone's article 
will occupy between twenty and 
thirty pagea of the Reviiew, and Mr. 
Blaine's reply will be about the same 
length, 'if not longer. It will be a 
battle ofinte lie otual giants. 

The artioles will be published slnk- 
ulfcaneously, by Mr. Gladstone's cori- 
' sent, and, as they take up bo much 
space, this isBue ot the Review will 
/ be enlarged to admit of tho usual 
amintjer and variety of papers on im- 
portant and timely topics.

The 'Orange County Farmer says: 
"At the request of President Wood of 
the New "Xork State Society, the 
editor ot the Farmer judged the 
exhibit of vegetables under the 
charge of James Viek, Seedsman, of 
Rochester, N. Y, This firm offered 
$450 in prize for the best and second 
best of certain varieties of the follow- 
ing six vegetables grown from seed 
purchased of them: Potatoes, Toma- 
toes, Celery, Cauliflower, Cabbage 
and Musk Melon. Almostevery State; 
in the Union was represented in the; 
competition. The display was mar- 
velous, and It was the moat dffleult 
tank of the kind that he undertook, 
owing to the uniform excellence of the 
exhibits. This display attracted m 
muenattentionasany feature of the 
fair, and reflected great credit on 
both the originators and competitors." 

I)«ar0lr;~A*leW.jas« wtsn |o ap- 
pear m a feMflar of Beets, 1 woeJd 
like to eomeft my mi s t s ** la regard 
to woolen nlUe ptodaees. Ik was 
•Up of the pen and not InUoUowO. 

I •UK loslet howovar that fee tariff 
on wool banefiU osttfaer th« firmer 
nor jronnafaeturer. If the tariff ;©n 
wool doee not #M*ble the JtariiiOT' ;to 
g*t * bettei- fvie* for hi« ?HxX Uian 
ue could g»t #ithontihthe» it Is of 
no benefit whatever. 

That protection ha* not ghret. the 
larintr&egood prices for his wool *» 
h* bad dortng what the protectionist* 
call "tne-frM trade 'period,"'.* easily 
proven by a variety ot sources; I will 
mention but two authorities for this, 
but more could be named if necessary. 
In 1883 the National Wool Groweie' 
Association said "the price of wool 
from 1854 to ItiOO under a low tariff, 
was .44$ cents to tho grower, while to- 
day under the tariff of 1867 (the high- 
est we, havo over had) it is only 80 
cents. In 1888 Senator Fry© of 
Maine, a protectionist, speaking of 
tho wool tariff of 1807 paid "domentlc 
wools havo gone down In price from 
tho time tbo Morrill tariff was enact- 
ed, until to-day. 

The patriot eaid in a former articlo 
that the object and effect of tho tariff 
was to reduce tho price of the tlilnga 
protected. I contend that tho object 
ot the tariff is to glvo those who aro 
protected, the power to get higher 
prices for the commodities tboy pro- 
duce, than could bo got without tho 
aid of the tariff, and this I think is 
tho main bcnotlt it confers. Where 
prices havo been reduced it 1b ba- 
cautjo of improvements In methodu of 
production and exchange, which 
would havo operated without the Rid 
of any tariff. 

Tho tariff is oololy for tho benefit of 
tho laud monopolist and capftaNnt. 

Our system or taxation, and the 
tariff is a part of it, hasj resulted i» 
the concentration of tho greater part 
of tho wealth of our country in tho 
hands of a email minority of tho peo- 
ple. Mr. Thomas G. Shearman, an 
eminent lawyer of Brooklyn, W. Y., 
has ohown in an article In tho No- 
vember Forum, that 40,000 persons 
own one-half the wealth of the United 
States and 2S0.000 personw own 75 to 
80 per cent, of it. This ia woreo even 
than England. 

Mr. Sherman's facts and reasoning 
havo not boon been disproved. He 
gave a list of 70 persona and corpora- 
tions whoso aKgregato wealth was 
2,700,000,000 dollars. Tho article haB 
caused a great amount of discussion 
and offortfj have been mado to show 
that ho is wrong. This has called out 
a second article from htm printed re- 
cently in the Bpringaeld, Mass., Re- 
publican. In hie last article ho 
speaks about tho tariff as follows:— 

Tho present accumulation of wealth 
in a few hands waaoertainly not ov- 
erstated in the Forum for November. 
The errors of understatement which 
have been since ascertained far out- 
weigh all errors in the way of ovor- 
stotomont which have even been sug- 
gested. And this concentration is 
certain to go on with increased veloc- 
ity. Thus far, if I understand you 
correctly, you and I agree. But you 
question the correctness of mv belief 
that a radical reform in taxation 
would suffice to reverse this current 
toward excessive concentration of 
wealth and to seoure an equitable 
distribution. Permit me to indicate 
briefly the ground of my opinions. 
Iu the first place you have overesti- 
mated the proportion which local 
taxation bears to federal taxation. 
In round numbers, federal taxation, 
all of whioh is confessedly indirect, 
has amounted to nearly $400,000,000 
per annum, while looal taxation has 
averaged only $300,000,000. More- 
over, I have never claimed that the 
tariff alone us responsible for the un- 
equal burdenB cast upon the poor; 
although I do claim that it is, to its 
fullest extent, the worst of any one 
form of taxation. The essential evil 
liea in indirect taxation; no matter of 
what Itind. Now internal revenue 
taxes und all taxes upon personal 
property are, in their nature, indirect. \ 
All taxes upon buildings and other 
improvemeuts upon the land are also 
indirect. All of thetse taxes, no mat 
ter whether levied by the nation or 
by the state or city, bear with enor- 
mous disproportion upon the poor. 
They are paid by men, not according 
to their ability, but according to 
their expenditures. The peculiar 
vice of the tariff consists in its adding 
to the sina Of all other formB of taxa- 
tion the crime of directly taxing the 
poor for the benefit of the rich; but 
every form ot indireot taxation ex- 
empts the rich in order to cast more 
burdens upon the poor. No one real- 
ly disputes this Who is sufficiently in- 
telligent and candid to be worth reas- 
oning with. Of course you have not 
diBputedit; but I think that you have, 
overlooked the conclusions which ore- 
necesBarlly to be inferred from it. 

Even if tho claim of the protection- 
ists that the tariff does not increase 
the price of domestic goods(whtch ib, 
of course, absurd) should be conced- 
ed, the only result would be to reduce 
by about one-tbird the burden which 
I claim to be thrown upon the poorer 
classes. There would still he .an. an- 
nual burden of not less than $500,000 
000 cast upon the poor, in excess or 
their just share. This, it must always 
be borne in mind, is taken out of their 
possible savings, and therefore repre- 
sents an annual deduotion from the 
wealth of the poor, and in effect an 
annual addition to the wealth of the 
rich. In thirty years, which u 1 the 
usual estimate of a generation, there 
would be, even upon the protection- 
ist theory, #15,000,000,000 unjustly de- 
ducted from the savings of the poor

Id assetiKmnnts under tho single tax 
all value* created by individual nso 
or Improvement would bo excluded,

to tho bare land by reason of neigh-

have no more taxeH to pay than the 
speculator who held a similar piece of 
lurid idle, and the man who on a city 
lot erected a valuable building would 
bo taxed no more tlmu tho man who 
hold a similar Jot vacant. 

Tho single tax, in short, would rail 
upon men to contribute to tho public 
rcvenueB not in proportion to what 
tlioy produce or aoaimiulato, but in 
proportion to the value of the natur- 
al opportunities thoy hold. It would 
compel thorn to pay just as much for 
holding land idle as for putting It to 
Ita fullest use.

The single tax, therefore*, would— 
1 Take the weight of taxation off 
of the agricultural distrleto when land 
has little or no value irr,capectivo of 
Improvements, nnd put it on towns 
and cities whore bare land rises to a 
value of millions of dollarspor aero.

taxes and a horde of taxgathers, sim- 
plify government and greatly reduce 
its coat. 

a J>o away with the fraud, corrup- 
tion and gross inequality inseparable 
from our present methods of taxation, 
which allow the rich to escape while 
th>y grind the poor. Land cannot be 
hid or carried off, and its value can 
be ascertained with greater case and 
cortainty than any other. 

A Give ua with all tho world as per- 
fect freedom of trade an now exists 
between the statec of our Union, thus 
enabling our people to share through 
free oxcliangos in all tho advantages 
which nature has given toothorcoun- 
trles, or whioh tho peculiar skill of 
other peoples has enabled tiietu to 
attain. It would destroy the trusts, 
monopolies, and coiruptiona whioh 
aro the outgrowths of the tariff. It 
would do away with the fines and 
penalties now levied on any one who 
improves a farm, erects a house, 
builds a machine, or in any way adds 
to the general stock of wealth. It 
would leave every ono freo to apply 
labor or expend capital in production 
or exchange without fine or restric- 
tion, and would leave to each the full 
product of his exertion. 

5. It would, on the other hand, by 
taking for public uses that value 
which attaches to land by reason of 
the growth and improvement of the 
community, make the holding of 
land unprofitable to the mere owner 
and profitable only to the user. ^It 
would thus make it impossible for 
epeoulators and monopolists to hod 
natural opportunities unused or only 
half used, and would throw open to 
labor the Illimitable field of employ- 
ment whioh the earth offers to man. 
It would thus solve the labor problem, 
do away with involuntary poverty, 
raise wages in all occupations to the 
full earnings of labor, make overpro- 
duction impossible until all human 
wants are satisfied, render labor sav- 
ing inventions a blessing to all, and 
cau-e such an enormons production 
and such an equitable distribution of 
wealth as would give to all comfort, 
leisure and participation in the ad- 
vantages ot an advancing civilization.

Tho patrons of the Parish cheese 
factory hold theiraunual meeting last 
Tuesday, The officers for the ensu- 
ing year are Harvev Palmer, PreS. ; 
Ed. Palmer, Kec'y-. J" **• Jossly, 
TroHH. »nd B. I). Edick and L. I). 
Pickens salesman. The report of the 
tin.l«Kttuui for 1880 if* as follows: num- 
ber of pounds of milk reo«tved into 
tho factory, ) ,583,937 ; number of 
pounds of eheeso manufactured 106,- 
008—i«i,i(f)l lbs. more than In 1888; 
amount of money received, $14,533.83 
paid patrons 912,835.78, paid com- 
pany $1,650.09. On an average during 
the year it tookO.B lbs. of milk to 
make one pound of oheose. Wo do 
not publish the foregoing on purpose 
to make a good showing of itself, 
but toiilustrato to dairymen the suc- 
cess of making the kind of oheeso we 
make. Our cheese is made to tickle 
the palate of Brother Jonathan not 
John Bull. It is truly a cream 
cheese and iu 1889 it was sold in Cloyo- 
land, Ohio, at £ of a cent above the 
Ut-ica ruling. We make full cream 
cheese the whole season. The pat- 
rons of tho factory expressed them- 
selves in favor of all manufacturers 
branding their cheese— if full cream 
as such; if skimmed as ouoh and a 
petition will be sent to the Legisla- 
ture to pass a law compelling each 
manufacturer to do so. It is mani- 
festly unjust to make full cream 
cheese eome in competition with skim 
milk as has been done. 

The vital statistics of Parish, for 
1889, show 20 deaths, 10 males and 10 
females. There were 2 deaths in Jan. 
2 in Feb., 3 in March, 4in April, 2 in 
May, 1 in June, 1 in July, 1 in Aug- 
ust, 2 in Sept. 1 in Oct., 2 in Dec. 
There were 4 deaths under 10 years 
of age, 1 between 20 and 40, between 
50 and 00, 2 between 60 and 70, 4 be- 
tween 70 and 80 and 4 over 80. There 
were 6 married men, 6 married wo- 
men, 2 widowers, S widows, one child 
3 years old and 8 infants. Our death

No disintswated wltosas of the pro- 
cesdings of ib* House sine* the r*- 
cwm can predict an early ad joanunent 
of the present session. The path of 
Speaker Bs«d Is not going to b* a 
smooth one that much was settled on 
Tuesday. The row began with Mr. Mo* 
Comas of ICaryhrod that the House go 
Into aoemmittee of the whole for the 
consideration of the -District. of Colum- 
bia appropriation bill; that the debate 
should last *. certain number of hours 
and in consideration of the hill the raise 
of the last House should be in effect. It 
Is unusual to go into committee by reso- 
lution, the usual wayhelog by simple 
motion. Mr. Becfceoridge, of Kentucky, 
opposed the resolution, as it involved 
ibe adoption of rules. 

Mr. Reed promptly decided Mr. Beok- 
enridge out of order, whereupon the 
Kentuckwo appealed. The appeal was 
decided by Mr. Reed ss not sustained, 
though the Democrats claim that the 
vote being without recapitulation by 
the clerk Is a matter of considerable 
doubt. Tho meaning of an appeal 
each oases has considerable gravity, as 
it is seldom made by a minority, from a j 
Speaker's ruling, unless the minority j 
feels that the decision at issue Is grossly 
partisan and unfair. 

Mr. Carlisle ia announced as having 
his war paint on and to be particularly 
aggrieved at Mr. Reed's conduct. As a 
member of the committee on Rules he 
holds that he should have been consult- 
ed about the rules. Yet, he says, tbere 
has been no session of the committee to 
his knowledge, and that if any now 
rules have been adopted lie does not 
know it. Mr.- McKinley defends Mr. 
Reed's actiOD In not verifying the list of 
yeas and noya on tho appeal, by the 
fact the Houbo bos no rules and there- 
fore the Speaker w«e not obligated to 
order the ol'erk to make a recapitula- 

The equanimity of the the Senate was 
rudely disturbed yesterday by tho ac- 
tion of Senator Vorbess in dragging in 
Col. Dudley's "Blocks of Five letter" 
Senator Vorhees' arraignment ot Col. 
Dudley was a casfully considered effort, 
and will undoubtedly call out a strong 
reply from a chosen mouthpiece of the 
other party. 

Some amusing complications arioe is 
administrating the affairs of the House 
without rules. The other day Congress* 
man Anderson, of Kansas, annoyed the 
Speaker by openly smoking on the 
Houes floor, ?b8 Speaker glared and 
sent a deputy Sergeant-at-Armg to in- 
form the member that "the rules of the 
House forbid smoking on the flooa:." 
The Western member sent back hie com-

wn&t God has created and to what is 
gainrd by the general growth andlnv 
provement of the community of which 
they are tt part. Therefore, no one 
should be permitted to hold natural 
opportunities without a fair return to

Mr. itujiva wunL to Brtinfi.M when 
18 monthsolii lo live with hia grand- 
father, Jonas Haynes. When 18 years 
of age he learned the clothier's trade of 
a Mr. Flint "-and wont to work for Mr. 
Clapp at Bast BrirafU-ld, and when 
Clapp removed to Swanaea, K. H„ he 
accompanied him, afterward working 
for tbe same man atVohiey, N. Y. She 
tailoring business becoming each year 
less valuable Mr, Haynes learned the 
trade of carpenter and builder, and 
helped put up the first block built ia 
byracuss, W. Y., also esca- 

v tiled a quarter sectiou— S8 rods— of tbe 
Erie canal, doing the work alone except 
having one man's help for two .weekp ( 
He never used tobacco, and though not 
addicted to the use of whiskey, made 
use of it while at work on the cauat 
rather than drink euch water as was to 
be had, thus to a great extent escaping 
the ague that prostrated ao many. 

When Mr. Haynes settled in Volney, 
it had leas than 300 inhabitants, now it 
ia divided into three towns- with over 
35.000 inhabitants. He took up SO acres 
of land and built a log kou^a 18 feet 
square at fli st and larger as he Could 
afford, carrying ou hia farm and carpen- 
tering for othere, walking from hia farm 
CO Fulton (a distance of nearly 9 miles) 
Monday moroing in time for a duy'a 
work, and going home after work Siit- 
urdsy aighf, many a time carrying 100 
pounds of meal on hia bock. 

There was no school house near, and 
one of the first things done aftur build- 
ing for himself a house was- to build a 
echool house. The Siat cemetery in 
Volney was luid out by him, lie made 
the coffin for !he firat person buried 
therein, and officiated at the funeral. 
Hia first wife being 'amoug the first to 
be Interred in this cemetery, now called 
North Volney cemetery. When be 
first came to Vomey in 1816 he eaye 
that deer were thicker here than sheep 
are now, that ."beats were aUo plenty, 
,nd almost every day In-lIuriB were 

He returned to Brimfibldin 1848, aud 
settled on Haytiea' hill on the. place 
which hie grandfather Jonas firet took 
upand baa lived there since. Mr. H. 
has u ntil recently received many let- 
Ears and answered them with hiB 1 
hand. He has had twowi^ea, marryiug 
StiUy Bogere of Wales in May 1.H1Q, and 
Lticinda Ferry of palmer in May 1843. 
Hit second wife is bale and hearty and 
almost S3 years of age. His children! 
all by hia first wife, were: — Sally, John- 
uihan, Miranda, l>aniel,Orpbaj and Lo- 
risa, the three latter still living, Daniel 
at Brimrield, Mas?., Mre, Orpha M. Heu- 
derson and Mre, Lorisa H, Burey at 
Fultwn, N. y, . ■ 

In 'politics a staunch Bspubiicao, in 
business strictly honest and reliable, he 
has been, to use bis own words, "a3 lit- 
tle beholden to his fellow mortals as 
most men." He is very kindly and 
charitable in quiet ways, doing good to 
those about him.

properly heeded wo should have more 
prosperous ynrallete. ffor example, 
lieten to theae bits of wisdom: It does 
not pay to borrow money in order to 
ptirolmoo more land. It 1b an old 
truth that "an acre of land has no 
limit to itcproduotive capacity." The 
true 'farmer prefers a email farm well 
titled. The manure that is spread on 
two aeres wiil give better results if 
applied to one aore, while the coBt of 
tillage will bo lees. No farmer can 
afford to buy more land until ho has 
brought up that already in lite pos- 
oeoeion to the highest degree of fer- 
tility. _____

when ground and scalded, but they 
may be fed to hotter advantage in 
the whole grains to adults. They are 
cheap' considering their value for

who have brought their worksi to a

What a wonder was the daily pro«a 
of the metropolis of tbe BmpJre Btato 
forty years ago. It's pony express 
and other methods of auqniring news 
dazzled the readers. Orctat were the 
elder Bennett and Watson Wobb. 
Hut how they would wonder, if alive 
now. at the hulky dailies of 1HD0- 
holding more news hi them iiwiw- 
times in one edition than they gave 
to the people in a week. And as to 
quality what « chunge, >io more are 
seen the display-heads of old:— "Lut-, 
est News from Kurope— -Arrival of the 
Europiv—Hix Days' Later News from 
the Old World." For the smart men 
of tbe present itavo made the procur- 
ing of news from Knropc more easy 
than it wan formerly to learn what 
was going on at Albany. 

Men worn smart when they rcdmwd 
the average trip from America to 
Kngland from live woeltH to fourteen 
days. Hut now you can cross the 
Hnnic ocean in less than seven days. 

What wonderful men must them 
have been who in (.he past had the 
courage to cross the mighty prairies 
of the West, in defiance of buffalos. 
liut a new pace arose that dotted 
these same pruirioH with hoim 
planted corn on farmn that had to bo 
ploughed by uleem; and as to the 
biiflalo, they have praoiically exter- 
minated the whole breed. 

Forty years ago, in (he city whore 1 
live, some keen men put out. the old 
oil lamps, and, amid the cheers of the 
citizens, inaugurated a new way of 
illuminating the night by gas. Oreafc 
was gas; but now something not 
like tho Queen of Night lights np 
street m front of my residence, 
electric wire gives forth that wh 
ilazzlcs tile eyes and turns night into 

Years ago the inventive genius of 
man conceived the idea of the stage 
coach, which gave ;io those who. 
could not afford to keep a horse 
and wagon a chance to stray away 
from homo in search ol knowledge, or 
to go on a business trip, for that ad- 
vance tho inventors deserved thanks 
But the men of the presant have 
laid aside the coach and-four, and 
now the iron-horse draws along, 
in palace .coaches, people by the 
thousands at a speed that would 
have startled tho iuohT advanced of 
their ancestors. The good old i urn- 
pike, too, lias boon suporeeded by tho 
elevated railroad. 

" Men in other days wore smart to 
do away with the old methods of hus- 
bandry; hut they never even imagin- 
ed some of tho wonderful inventions 
that this generation lias produced to 
till the soil and duoroase hard work, 
Not many years ago whenever a 
building was erected smart hod-car- 
riers could be seen climbing ladders 
with loads of brick on their shoulders 
that astonished those who were fee- 
ble and weak. But those tough men 
have about disappeared, as tho bright 
men of the present have constructed 
a hod-carrier that stands in the cel- 
lar and can do more work in an hour 
than some of the old kind could in a 
day. There was always one peon 
lllarity about the old-fashioned hod- 
oarrie — smoke was seen continually 
coining from his pipe. But the now 
one gives forth more smoke than the 
old, and never stops to waste time by 
knocking out the ashes. 

The men of olden times read the 
newspaper perhapaonly once a week. 
Now men read the morning and even- 
ing papers. How much better they 
are off for so doing is a question, 

But the most marked difference be- 
tween the men of tho past and the 
present is the fact that those of the 
present are less brutal. There has 
come over mau a more refined spirit, 
the*- result of years of religious influ- 
ence and more general education 
among the people. 

The men of to-day are smarter and 
better than their forefathers were; 
and so with the boys. And may it 
continue so to be is the 'earnest wish 
of every good man and woman. 

What a world this will be when ail 
shall love Christ and hold daily com* 
ulnnion with him!— N. X. Witness.

One Oar a REUlloaaire* 

George SJnthonr, born and raised 
in New Philadelphia, O., a poor boy, 
started west about fifteen years ago, 
determined to make bis fortune. He 
became a faro gambler, and In a few 
years was worth #500,000. Slutboar 
was anxioos to be worth amillion be- 
fore returning to his old home, and 
one night, when the room was filled 
with well-known sporting men, many 
of them worth their half million, be 
determined to try for a big strike. 
Lock again favored binv and by 3 
o'clockin the morning ha had broken 
the bank and won enough to make 
his fortune eonnt a cool million. Be 
was hot satisfiad; with, this, bat kept 
on playing the next night. That 
very night ho began losing, and be- 
fore morning every dollar ne had 
won the night beforo had vanished. 
He was a xoiUionaire, however, for 
one short day. Even with this losa 
he was still possessed of ample for' 
tone, bat he began playing a desper- 
sttegame,; riskiog thoosands of dol- 
lanats>tun«,hat laek was against 
him. Hfs princely fortune entirely 
disappeared. The sad sequel to the 
ease is that he has been brought

'■You cmi't teach tin old dog now 
tricks," said old Jiulgo Dewey, of Yel- 
low Mound City, when Ufa wifo begged 
hitn for tlio third tlrao to reraembor to 
eat with his fork at her approaching din- 
iicr party; "I'll try not to forgot, my 
dear, but I wasn't brought tip to it. 
.Folks ought to do what they nro brought 
up to," 

Ho did not reiuouibur at tho dinner 
party. Hie knifo went to his mouth a 
•dozen times. Next day, when tho fam- 
ily was dining alone, thu old jud^o de- 
tected bin youngest Hon, Frank, with hio 
knifo at bit) lips. 

"Eatinp; with your knifo, air? Leavo 
tho tubio!" thundered tho old judge. 
"You'll eat brtJad and milk till further 

"Really; papa, I think you aro too 
hard on poor Frankie," said Mra. Dewey, 
ae the little fellow loft tho tabic. The 
faces of the elder boys nnd tho grown up 
daughters showed that they agreed with 
thoir mother. 

"Ho ate with his knife," growled the 
old man, 

"So did you at tho dinner," retorted 
Mrs. Dewey, severely. 

"Don't 1 know itl" returned tho judge. 
Don't I know itl I eat with my knife 
because 1 wag brought up to it, but that 
boy wasn't brought up to it. Mono of 
my children was brought up to it, and if 
I catch one of 'em doing it, as sure aa I 
live, I'll lock 'em up on spoon victuals 
till they learn tho mo of a fork!"—

Tho Now "I'lngor" JPrnyot 1 Boole. 
Henry Frowdo, of Oxford univorBity, 

has designed a. series of prayer books, the 
novelty and merit of which consist alike 
in their diminutive sine and tho beauty 
of their binding. It is difficult to believe 
tliat awoolt of nearly 700 pages will go 
into the waistcoat pocket or into the puree, 
but such ie the delicacy of tho workmau- 
shlp and the compactness of the binding 
that no difficulty will bo found in such a 
method of carriage. Tho tiny volume, 
bound in morocco and velvet, which Mr. 
Frowde has called tho "Finger" prayer 
book, weighs about three-quarters of an 
ounce, is only one inch in breadth, three 
and a Half inches in length and one-third 
of an inch in thickness. To get 670 pagea 
.and two morocco covers into tho thick- 
ness of one-third of an inch ia a marvel 
of paper making and binding. Ona speci- 
men is contrived to hang on the chate-

THEM IN THE pt-D >W3Ht0, 

A Peculiar Privilege. 
It appears that only two persona enjoy 
the privilege of driving to the Vatican 
with a one horsa vehicle. One of them 
ia the commissary general of the holy in- 
quisition and tho other the Prussian am- 
bassador accredited to tho Holy See. Tho 
letter's privilege owea its origin to rather 
soimterestinpcircumstance. A Prussian 
ambassador some Years ago drove up one 
day in & single horse" carriage and pre- 
sented himself for admission at the gates 
of tho Vatican leading into the court 
yard; but, iu pursuance of their orders, 
he was ref uWladmii&ipgt, except on foot, 
by the Swiss guard. Cemg forced to 
yield, he complained with some bitter- 
ness to Cardinal Antoneili, secretary of 
•■atateto Pius IX, who said he would refer 
the matter to his hplineas. Plus XX, upon 
bearing of the incident, immediately gave 
•orders thai henceforth his excellency, 
the Prussian ambassador, was to be al- 
lowed admittance ouui quocumque quad- 
mpede.— Chicago Times,

Groat Britain S» far .from lieuijr the 
only country in wMch »uch »ra«l*ful ox- 
l>endituro has occurred and in occurring. 
Husiiia is a great transgressor in this re- 
spect. Tho lato ckrt already powwwed 
half a dosMn capital yachts when he gave 
ordera for tho building of tho notorious 
JJvadio. SIio waa to bo tho largest and 
moat magnificent as well an tho moat 
original yacht in tho world. Unlike all 
other vcRflcls of the kind, alio waa to !» 
constructed with a beam equal to two- 
thirdnof her length, go that oho might 
not roll, and the Imperial family might 
be spared tho horroro of ccatiickncsg. 
8ho wan to be imppliod with three cicrows 
an that olio might bo handy «a well ao 
f«Ftt. And upon lior opnclouo deck was 
to bo built a veritable palace. Tho piano 
were carried out, and the Livodio. was 
launched at: Oovan in 1836. 


I"robably no one knows what oho 
cost, but it in certain that from first to 
lust considerably more than £500,000 was 
expended on her. Yet her imperial own- 
er would have nothing to say to her. An 
a yacht she wns acoloaual failure, and 
today she io only tmef ill as a kind of float- 
ing barracks in tho Black oca. Tho pres- 
ent czar is, nevertheless, expending a 
fm-ther £500,000 over a new vessel, 
which in to be called the Polarnaia 
ZiVWiU, and which, tihould alio bo a mto- 
cetw, will haveall the magnificence, near- 
ly all the eizo and more than tho speed 
and handini'Ufi of tho disoredited Noah's 
ark in which his majenty once hoped to 
take bis pleasure. 

Tho exav's ostiavaganc© does not in- 
jure uu. Neither does the yachting ex- 
travagance of the young German emper- 
or, who, although ho poaseusea in tho 
Hohenzollern one of tho prettiest and 
most comfortablooraftof the kind afloat, 
has .just applied to his faithfttl subjects 
for a grant of money equal to £325,000 
iu order that he may build himself a now 
yacht. These ejtamples are interesting 
to tho British taxpayer only because 
they illustrate what appears to bo a very 
general tendency on the part of the Eu- 
ropean royalties. It is not until the tax- 
payer comes to consider the royal yacht 
question as it affects 'him personally that 
he osperieuces any very discomforting 

Her majesty at present enjoys tho .us© 
of four yachts and tenders. The yachts 
aro tho Victoria and Albert and tho Os- 
borne and tho tenders, which for all prac- 
tical purposes aro yachts also, and the 
Alberta and tho Elfin. The oldest of the 
four is tho littlo yacht ElQn, which was 
built at Chatham in 1840, and whish is of 
only ninty -three tons displacement, Sho 
originully cost £0,168, or about £60 7s, a 
ton. The Enchantress, tho present ad- 
miralty yacht, ia a beautifully fitted 
craft of 1,000 tons displacement, yet her 
original coat was rather less than £47 a 
ton. It ia clear, therefore, that, at tho 
outset, the Elfin was an expensive ba*> 
gain. Sho has now been in existence 
forty years, and, during that period, with- 
out reckoning the wages of the crew and 
tho price of her consumable stores, she 
has cost an additional sum of over £40,- 
000,' or, on the average, more than £1,000 
a year, her total cost up to date being 
about £47,000. It is aa if an ordinary 
citizen had bought a house for £6,000 
forty years ago and had since spent £41,- 
000, not in adding to it, but simply keep- 
ing it in repair. The little Elfin at this 
moment has cost tho country over £500 
for every ton of her displacement, 


Next of the four in point of ace is the 
Victoria and Albert, the largest of the 
royal yachts. She is of 3,470 tons dis- 
placement and was built at Pembroke in 
1863. Her original costi inclusive of in- 
cidental dockyard charges, was £176,830, 
or over £?l a ton, She, too, wae^expen- 
Give at the outset. In the tLdrty-foor 
years which have since elapsed — setting 
aside as before the wage3 of berorew 
and the price of her consumable stores — 
she has cost, including incidentals, an 
additional sum of more than £337,000, 
or on the average nearly £13,000 a year 
—her total cost up to date beings rough- 
ly speaking, £505,000. As she lies in 
Portsmouth harbor today she has cost 
the country about £225 for every ton of 
her displacement Third in seniority is 
the Alberta, which was built iu 1863 at 
Pembroke, and which is of $70 tons dis- 
placement. We regret that We have not 
succeeded "in finding out the exact 
cost of this vessel. We arc informed 
that it is about '£70,000.' ' 

We believe it to be more; but, accept- 
ing the estimate, we pass on to the

the Osborne. Sue waa built at Pem-

Billy Lynch fcelloantoryaboutadogho 
utsed to own in Chicago, which goca far 
toward provinj; that a brute can reason. 
Ho bad a iino Bt. Bernard which was a 
good retriever, and on Sundays would 
take him about half a block from' his 
house on Indiana avenue nnd lot him 
carry the papers borne bo purchnt'ed from 
tho newnboy. One morning it wan rain- 
ing, and Hilly Raid ho spoke to tho dog 
juiit as Ik* would to a child, arid told him 
that ho didn't cam about walking over 
to the corner, mo he might as well take 
the nickel nnd go and get the paper. Ho 
wrapped a nick?! up in a piece of paper 
and gave it to tho dog, which inmiodi- 
utoly went to the corner and waited for 
the boy, Hilly watched hitn and saw 
that In? got the paper all right, and was 
bo ploam.vl (but the nest Sunday ho re- 
peated the experiment, and tho nextSun- 
day did the hmivi thing. 

Tlio following Sunday he overslept 
himself and was awakened by a scratch? 
big at his window. Getting lip ho saw 
that his dog had come out of the back 
yard into a little passageway between 
bin bedroom and a neighboring house 
and way endeavoring to wake him up. 
Knowing it was Sunday, ho gave the 
dog a nickel and told him to go and get 
the paper, which ho did. Billy was 
awake next Sunday, but concluded to 
seo what his dog would do, and, euro 
enough, it camo around to tho window 
and scratched. Tho next Sunday and 
tho next were tried, and the dog was 
always on limo. Now, whether the dog 
know when Sunday came or was aware 
of tho fact by tho newsboys being more 
vociferous on those days is not known, 
but ho was thoroughly tested and would 
not come to the window except Sun- 
days. Billy thinks that the dbg reasoned; 
that it would be a hard tusk for any one 
to say that ho didn't. — Helena (Mont.) 

Transplauttii£ KvorsreenH. 

During the month of AugUsfc I wit- 
nessed the transplanting of several hun- 
dred Austrian and Scotoh pines, writes 
Joseph Heehan in Garden and Forest. 
The result was the loss of nearly the 
whole lot, and it was such a surprise to 
me that I think the facts in regard to it 
worth recording. Tho weather was all 
that could bo wished for, being warm 
and moist, and the soil waa in ii% same 
condition. Tho pines had been gp*>wing 
oloso together in rows and were from 
four to five feet high. As they were not 
as busby as could bo wished, we thought 
best to prune them in well, and after the 
transplanting a man was sent with 
shears toclip them closely. This he did, 
cutting off all the latest growth, taking 
from six to ten inches from the branches. 
Out of 300 plants all were so trimmed 
except some half dozen, which wero pur- 
posely le£fc Unpruned to see which would 
do the better. At that time I confident- 
ly expected that the pruned trees would 
show the benefit of tho work. However, 
they soon began to turn brown, and in 
the end every one died, while every one 
of the few left unpruned are alive today. 

As soon as it was observed bow the 
matter was going to end another row 
was set out, unpruned, and all the plants 
in it are thriving today. No doubt the 
severe pruning was the cause: of this 
failure. All the younger or active foli- 
age had been cut away, leaving only that 
which was past its usefulness and which 
was about ready to drop off. The trees, 
Avere, in fact, in just the same condition 
that a deciduous tree would have been if 
stripped of all its leaves in the middle of 
summer. ; It wag a costly but a valuable 
lesson, and one worth putting on record 
as a warning to others.

Charley Howard was talking toISurko, 
the old book store, man a few evenings 
ago, when n stranger fresh from New 
Orleans clipped up, saying to Mr. Burke: 

"What will you give for a big lock of 
Jefferson Davis' hair?" 

"Ah! Ihavo plenty of it," answered 
Mr. Burke. "Quite a quantity." 

Then aa the stranger walked away 
surprised that any one should have tho 
treasure ho thought so valuable, Mr. 
Burke said: * 

"Tho truth ^ I have everything a relio 
hunter wants. I have hair from the 
head of many distinguished men dead or 
alivo. Maybe you wouldn't believe it, 
but one-quarter the money I put into my 
house came from the sale of hair off 
Oeorge Washington's head." 

"Do you know," Mr. Burke went on, 
"that the relio hunter is the biggest fool 
on earth. Any ralio bo may want has 
no value. It is simply a question of how 
much he is able to pay. I can always 
size a man up as he comes in and am 
therefore able to hit him just right. 

"Take a battlefield relic," said Mr. 
Burke after a pause, "I go home, say, 
and get my wife to mark a half dozen 
pieces of ribbon as I want it. Then I 
pound two bullets together and fasten to 
the ribbon. They aro bullets, you know, 
which met in mid air on tho Kenesaw 
field. I put one in the showcase with 
the card and the others in a drawer. A 
relio hunter buys the only one, but as 
soon as he is gone the drawer is opened 
and another takes it3 place. They cost 
about a dime and bring in a five. "—At-

Ito Keep Ttousofb la Sfoape. 

A well dressed man recently entered a 
leading men's furnishers store and asked 
to be shown suspenders. Presently after 
due investigation he selected a certain 
style and inquired of the salesm&n how 
many pairs he had in stock. Eight was 
the numbar and ho took tho lot, the 
clerk meanwhile looking at the custom- 
er with a suspicion as to his sanity. 
There was method in tho man's mad- 
ness. "You Gee," said he, "when one 
has a pair of suspenders for each pair of 
trousers and one hangs the trousers by 
the suspenders from the closet nail, the 
dependant weight keeps the trousers in 
shape and the 'bag' out of tho knees. 
Moreover," continued this practical lat- 
ter day Beau Brummell, "think of the 
waste of the time involved in. the chang- 
ing of one's suspenders every timsone 
changes one's trousers, let atone the 
.bother. ; 

"And then consider in such a case the 
wear and tear in both suspenders and 
trousers. Besides, one pair of trousers 
may be longer or shorter than another, 
and the suspenders, if they have not to 
be changed, once adjusted properly, the 
procesaof hoisting up or down, whish 
cauaea an expenditure; of time and pa- 
tience, is done away with. It, is in-

About Bve minotes ago! gave out 
a letter U> be pot in ty|>e by the com- 
poaitor»thalh«uut uieto thinktog, 
«ad otighi to make every reader of 
the Witvkba follow suit. 
; The suoetancs of the letter is that 
witue fanners oa» only g«t one and 
one-half cents a pound for fat cattle. 

When I flr»t saw the statement in 
the Witskss I thought there mnBt bo 
some mistake in the flgores; but I am 
aorry to say that such is not the fact, 
but that - positive evidence has been 
reoeivedat this office that the facts 
are as stated. 

Aa tho success of »Kr»oalturis,ts 
means the success of the nation, such 
a 'statement ought to have the effect 
of forcing public attention on the 
questiott "What is the mat tor? 1 * «nd 
some kind of solution oughi to ,bo ar- 
rived at. 

The farmers must be in a. terrible 
way when they aro compelled to sell 
their product at saoh ruinous low 
prices as those at present current in 
tho prairie states. 

Ab a class they liavo been very pa 
tient, never complaining of long 
hours. Who ever has heard of a 
movement among tho farmers favor- 
ing tho eight-hour law? Yet they 
work as hard, if not harder, than any 
other class of men. 

While manufacturing interests 
have betn more than protected by 
the Government the fanner has been 
practically let alone. Almost every 
implement that he uses he is com- \ 
pelted to pay protection duty on, I 
whilit everything lie has for t-alo is i 
unprotected. Suwh a, condition of j 
itffairi) iirnkeH it lia^d work for him in j 
Iiia struggle for ^xistouce. Itailroedri j 
are started for tin- benefit of the far- 
mers so as to enable them to carry! 
what they produce to some good mar- 
ket; and it is a good idea, the only 
drawback being that the freight and 
other charges soiiietiiiieo sweep away 
the farmer's profits, and more too. 

It is no use suggesting that the for- ' 
liier and his family should live more 
economically and work more hours, 
for the truth is that in both these 
ways the farm household has arrived 
at the place where there can be no 
change made in that direction. Fath- 
er, mother, sons and daughters, as a 
rule, Have done their whole duty on 
the farms of this country, 

And it does seem to me that the 
farmers have tried everything. Their 
lands have been forced to the utmost 
by all kinds of fertilizers; the horses 
have been worked until you could 
almost hang your hat on their gothic- 
shaped sides; their farm-houeeB have 
been (where possible) used in the 
summer to house a dozen or less city 
folks, greatly to the discomfort of 
those who ought to have a little ease 
and comfort during the "dog days;" 
and, os a last resort, some of the 
farmers spend their spare winter 
hours in following the profession of 
book agents, or some other way of 
earning an honest penny. 

There must be soine close thinking 
done to help the farmer. His profes- 
sion.ought to be the most respected 
and best paying in the country— for 
it is the most useful of all. 

But a business that presents only 
hard work and no play can never 
have any charms for the young men 
of this or any other generation. 
When it can be shown that there is a 
good living iu working a farm fewer 
young men will try to get a living by 
their wits — which often means a job 
in the penitentiary. 

Ia the great scramble for a living 
give the farmer a show. He is a ne- 
cessity, for his toil means the produc- 
tion of that which gives life to others. 

The best brains of the country 
ought to/be set to work to help solve 
the problem, What shall be done to 
help the farmers? 

One thing is certain, an effort must 
be made to prevent the farmers being 
taxed to death. It is impossible for 
them to hold their own. and pay exor- 
bitant taxes for the support of a herd 
of unnecessary officials. And they 
must cease borrowing money at ten 
and twelve per cent, interest for the 
purpose of improving the land. 

Is the poverty of some ot the far- 
mers of this land overdrawn? From 
letters received, stating their inabili- 
ty to raise even one dollar to sub- 
Berifae for a newspaper, I shonld say 
it is not. 

Agricultural pursuits mast always 
be the backbone of this country's 
success. It shonld be a land dotted 
all over with happy farm-homes 
whose prosperity would take the 
edge off the chiilingblasts that often 
come -"over a manufacturing commun- 
ity.': There is safety for this nation 
in protecting ■ and fostering its agri- 
cultaral interests. 

I am ao advocateof what is teriaed 
a paternal government;, but I do be- 
lieve 1» having a government that 
will protect its bent citizens from the 
grip of those who would make mince- 
meat of them. 

, Let the farmers live to e*Jc>5* some 
of the comforts and luxuries they 
work so hard to procure for others. 
The farmer's family should not have 
to eat what is not good enough to be 
aokd to toe residents # our cMIes.

ALBANY, Jan. 39. —There will be 
two fui-iMur's iiiBtilutefi held, in con- 
nection with tho annual meeting of 
the Mew York «tate Hgricultnrat bo- 
oiofcy, Wednoiiday and Thursday. 
Tho election for olttcern of the society 
will bo very spirited. Bo'h sides 
maintain that they have enough 
pioxioH to carry their point. 'J'iie 
main point at iusue is' tho board of 
truutoefl, whieli Ims the deelgnntloii 
of the place for holdiug tho next utato 
fair, Tho present oQloem are in iavor 
of a permanent location, having set- 
tled on Syracuse aa the place, and 
authorized the erection of bulldinga 
and fences on the grounds set apart 
for tho soeiety. Tho anti-permanent 
tilte men hope to put a board in con- 
trol that will favor the rotation or 
"roving fiite;" that in, hold the fair 
eacli succeeding year at a different 
place from tho laat one. Tho election 
will occur at noon, Weimeuday, and 
it is likely that more than twotlilrda 
of the 1.7«0 members will voto by

THE question ot the aite for the 
World's Pair to be held in 1802 oontin-, 
ues to be a matter for considerable 
discussion and much interest. Speak- 
er Eeed of the House of Representa- 
tives on Monday appointed the fair 
eommittea. On -location of tho fair 
the committee stands as follows:— 

For Chicago, Hitt and Springer; 
for St. Louis, Hatch and Frank; for 
2Tew York, Helden and Flower; for 
Washington, Bowden and Wilson. 

The chairman, Mr. Candler, Is sat-

The letter left behind by n dejected 
woman who ended her life last week 
in New York by jumping from the 
upper story of a tenementhouse gives 
a iield of inquiry that one of the en- 
terpriBing metropolitan newspapers is 
delving into. The letter read:— 
"I've the satisfaction of knowing 
. that I have tried and could not obtain 
any/honest work, not even scrubbing. 
I could hoVe got plenty of shady 
work from those who advertise for 
housekeepers and then, when you see 
them, gently insinuate that you must 
add wifely duties to domestic arrange- 
ments. There are plenty such in this 
ctfcj, but I do not approve of such 
economy. I have been bo indignant 
that I would like to have shot the top 
of the heads off the old fools." 

When Jules Verne, the French nov- 
©JeBt -wrote his book "Around the 
World In Eighty Days" and disoribed 
thft adventures of his hero Phileas 
Fogg in accomplishing the task It 
■was considered a great stretch of the 
imagination to have his hero make 
the journey in that time. On -Novem- 
ber 13, two young .American women, 
Nellie Biy sent by the enterprising 
New "Kork World and Miss Bislami

■tarted to make the trip ia the least 
time possible. The former traveling 
East and the latter West. Each is 
'. now on the final lap andjoles Verne's 
imagtowy trip will without donbt be 
beaten by from five to ten days by

Some idea of the enormous passen- 
ger traffic of the great railways may 
be obtained by inspecting the annual 
report or the New York Central rail- 
road which has just been made pub- 
lic. . 

In 1883 this great company carried 
for the first time in its history more 
than 10,000,000 passengers; in 1885 the 
number carried during the year had 
increased to nearly 13,000,000, and in 
USD there were transported on its 
trains more than 18,000,000 paBSeU- 

The Albany & Schenectady railroad 
chartered in 182C as the Mohawk & 
Hudson, was opened September 19th 
1831, and was the flrBt railroad built 
in the State of New York. In 1847tDe 
name was changed to Albany & 
Schenectady. In 1853 this road was 
consolidated with nine other small 
lines, forming the New York Central, 
and in 1830 this company was consoli- 
dated with the Hudson River rail- 
road, forming what has since been 
known as the New York Central & 
Hudson^ River railroad. 

In 1881 the Mohawk & Hudson car- 
ried but a, few passengers', last year 
the New- York Central & Hudson Riv- 
er railroad carried more than 18,000,

Friendship improves happfnosp, and

Men of the noblest dispositions

Conduct hi the great profession" : 
Behavior is the perpetual revealing 
of Urf. What a man does, tells uo 
what he is.— F. D. Huntington. 

A sound economy Is a sound under- 
standing brought into action. It is 
calculation realized; it isthe doctrine 
of proportion reduced to practice; it 
is foreseeing contingencies and pro- 
viding against them; it is espeotlng 
contingencies and being prepared for 
them.— Johnson. 

Books are a guide In youth, and an 
entertainment for age. They pup- 
port us under solitude, and keep us 
from becoming a burden to ourselves. 
They help us to compose our cares 
and our passions, to lay our disap- 
pointments to sleep. When we are 
weary of the living we may repair to 
the dead, who have nothing of peev- 
ishness, pride or design in their con- 
versation. — Collier. 

In company it is a very great fault 
to be more forward in setting one's 
self off, and talking to show one?s 
parts, than to learn the worth, and 
to be truly acquainted with the abili- 
ties of other men. He that makes it 
his business not to know, but to be 
known, is like a foolish tradesman, 
who makes all the baste he can to sell 
ol? his old stock, but takes no 
thought of laying in anynew.— Ch&r-

- The Senate committee on Naval 
Affairs held a special session this week 
to hear the views of the naval board of 
policy appointed last Summer by 
Seoretery Tracy, to formulate and 
report a scheme for the improvement of 
the navy to the standard of that of a 
first claefl power f Commodore McCann, 
President of the Board, Captain Simp 
eon and Naval Construetor Gatewood 
did most of the talking. They approved 
in general terms the bill introduced by 
Senator Hale, which authorized Ihe 
President to have constructed eight 
battle ebips of from 7,000 to 10,000 tons 
each, two armed coast veesela, three 
gun boats of from 800 to 1,!W0 ton* each 
and Ave flret cla8» improved torpedo 
boats. The bill farther appropriates 
15.000,000 for construction and $3,000,- 
000 for armament, which latter aum it 
is expected would provlda a most 
elaborate and powerful gunnery. The 
policy board, in reporting to Secretary 
Tracy, will recommend the construction 
of 103 veuels of diHerent type and six*, 
to be built within fourteen years and to 
coati all told,over two hundred and fifty 
million^, "

U. Huntington of Clovoltmd, own two 
of the beat want lies in the world. 
They nre dupiieatos, and were order- 
ed by the senior Huntington In isai, 
in Geneva, Switzerland. He agreed 
to pay #0,000 in gold for two watohes 
that should combine every movement 
then lenown to the art of watchmak- 
ing. A description of one answers for 
both. Theeawe jg of pure gold; the 
works number 400 pieces. On the 
large dial appear four smaller dials. 
The one at the top bIiowh by a dia- 
gram of the sky the changes of the 
moon, the firmament being lapis 
lazuli etudded withgoldenstars. The 
Best dial to the right shows the leap 
year, the tiny band moving around 
circle once in four years,and an aux- 
iliary hand shows each month. On 
tho dial at the bottom is a hand mak- 
ing (he quarter eeooudu, and one 
showing the day of the month. At 
the left, on the fourth miniature dial, 
i«a hand putting out thetday of the 
week, and another the tide as it ebbs 
and ilowu. Around the largo dial, 
besides tho usual hour and minute 
hand, moves a second hand and an 
extra horse timer, so arranged that 
the distance between two horses at 
the finish is accurately noted in 
quarter seconds. By pressing a but- 
ton the past hour is .• truok on a deep 
toned boll, one of a chime, the quar 
ters are a more silvery note, and n 
rapidly tinkling companion gives 
the inmates. Tho watch is a stem-

Parucll ond many other suspects were

tice for Ireland was on trial and a renewal 
of coercion was battled for in tha house- of 
commons, O'Shoa was found to bo only a 
half hearted champion after all. In 1885 
Paraell uominatcd him for a vacancy in 
Galway for parliament. This caused a hub- 
bub throughout Ireland, and CShea was 
openly denounced as a traitor to tho National 

In tho crisis Parnell hurried to Galway, 
acd at his bidding the situation changed at 
ones. Ho made a speech, aud declared that 
O'SUea's election was a political necessity. 
Although he was still regarded with disfavor, 
ho was elected, and the gnnubling ceased. 

No sooner had ho taken his seat than he 
dded with the Tories, notwithstaudius Ida 
pledge to Irish Nationalists to support party 
measures or resign. He was now hicbed cut 
of bis Galway seat and Parnell was not 
strong enough to savo him. Iu the investiga- 
tion of tho famous forged letter 0"Shea stood 
for The Times and swore that he- beUWod tho 
Parnell signature to be gvnoin*. At the time 
of the Qalway election the present scandal 
wiia hinted at as the real reason for Porncll'*

accepted without protest and without effort:

Henry Hilton is sixty eight years of

tlio crafty sense of that term. He got 
his title of Judge thirty- five years agi 
when he sat upon the bench of ilr 
New York Common Pleas. At tin 
time of tho Tweed regime he was a 
recognized member of that notorious 
■coterie, and when the brains of that 
Hug, Peter B. Sweeney, became the 
President of the Park Commission 
iHenry Hilou was mad" its Secretary. 
"When the exposure of the Tweed 
• gang was made no breath of scandal 
was permitted to cloud the reputation 
*ofHen,ry Milton, for lie at tiiat time 
had become intrenched against public 
.attack by having gained the friend- 
ship, eonildeiiue and support of the 
all-powerful A. T. Stewart. His ac- 
quaintance with the millionaire be- 
gan through Hilton's wife being Stew- 
urtV cousin, mid in time the Judge 
managed to make himself so useful in 
asocial way to the dry goods mer- 
chant that the latter found him iudis- 
>pensable. A. T. Stewart was not a 
:iuan of words nor of graee of manner, 
■and was absolutely lacking: in those 
-qualities which would enable him to 
-give proper, eeeepiion to his guests On 
ceremonial occasions. Tht-dea«ieney

From this time forward tho lad enjoyed 
quito a. local reputation, but bia father waa 
broken in health, Robert was tho' younsosS 
of seven children, and lifo for liim eestned to 
grow harder overy year. Nevertheless, ha 
cmbracod every opportunity to store hla miud 
with information, and was particularly eager 
to bear of tho old Scottish heroes, "butdc- 

obscuro press of Kilmarnock, and sprang at ' lights most of all in tho old women's etorlca 

oneo intotmch popularity that shrewd critics j ot witches and warlocks, haunted glens end

tho old churchyards. A little later ho pro- 
duced Bomo lengthy pieces in tbo local dialect 
wbicb attracted wido attention aud causod 
his society to bo greatly sought by Botuo per- 
sona of menus and cult uro— a result which 
was highly beneficial in dovolopiug hi3 con- 
versational powers, but induced habits of 
conviviality end consequent troublo. 

In 1781-83 ho waa in tbo depths of despond- 
ency. Ho took a small (arm in conjunction 
witb his brother, and lost tbo littlo bo hod 
invested. Uo cast about for methods of im- 
proving his fortunes, but failed in all. Ho 
love and could not marry. Tho parent] 

predicted a reaction; for it is painful fact 
that, as a rule, tho greatest works have grown 
slowly into public favor, while sudden and 
universal popularity is often a proof that tho 
production ia suited only to tho Uuio in which 
It appears, that, its sparklo and humor please 
hecftuso of their apt reference to passing 
ovonts or harmony with tho atmosphere of 
tlio day, and will ovapornto as that atmos- 
phere is changed. Not thus has it been with 
Burns. His nonius was for all time.

nwn and maid servants gladly iM-stowed tboir j ol hb loved ono sternly forbada tho union; 
hard earnings to procure tho works of : tho lovors mot often, howovor, and tho ro- 
Burns." As tho Erst edition was limited to ! suits wore evil Completely cast down, ho 
GOO copies it was soon exhausted, and boforo , resolved to leave his native land for Jamaica, 
a second could bo issued, so great was tho ' and somo of his sweetest, saddest poena were 
anxiety to obtain it that copies of many of written whilo that intention remained. To 
tbo poems wero mo do in manuscript end procure tho means of paying his passage ho 

banded around from family to family. Tho 
volume, indeed, contained matter for nil 
minds— for the lively and sarcastic, for tho 
gay and the thoughtful, for tho enthusiast 
and, abovoall, for tho proper gratification of 
local prido. 

It must bo admitted, however, that for this 
suddeii popularity tho pooms wore somewhat 
indebted to peculiarly favoring circumstan- 
ces. There had long been a complete dearth 
of really Scotch writers, while or local lyrics 
there had practically b'ten none, unles we 
oxcopt tbo works of Ferguson which appeared 
ia a collected form in 1773. In Edinburgh

Scotland seemed utterly absorbed in tb* ab-

Theology, it tliat ha tha proper uwha for iu- 

published the first edition of his poems— that 
ot 1780, previously referred to— cad its suc- 
cess changed tho whola current ot his life. 

Ho was oq the point of embarking when ho 
was invited to Edinburgh to attend to the 
issue of a second edition. lo tho capital he 
was "the lion of tho hour." He associated 
with all who were eminent in letters, and 
with many eminent in rauk, wealth and 
fashion, his conversation exciting es much 
admiration as bis pootry. Unspoiled by flat- 
tery, ho retained his independence of mind 
and lovo of rural lifo. The profits of his 
publication aro reported to havo reached 
£CC0, and with this ho took and clocked tho 
farm of Eli island, near Dumfries, where lie 
located in 1768, having publicly ratified his 
marriage with Jean Armour. Her father 
was still obdurate, but tho marriage would 
hav© been a le^al, as it was a moral, obliga- 
tion in any ovsut. 

Again he faded 03 a farmer, and in less 
than four years located in Dumfries. Heuad 
been appointed an exciseman, aud, though 
tho salary never escssded £70 per year, it 
was bia sole support. About this timo bo 
wroto those political effusions and someother 
productions iu which some bitterness of feel- 
ing is shown. . His expressed sympathy' -with, 
the- French revolution deprived hina of the 
good will of tho wealthy and powerful, and 
prevented his repel viug promotion in the ex- 
cise. Indeed, only the intercession of a f aw

Tbeaa ercnta wwa two attempts on the lire 
of Father Janice A. Kelly, pastor of St. 
Fatrrck^Roman Catholic church at Oneida. 
Father Kelly ia a great friend of Mr. Ryanfe- 
andltlakiiownto many that he baa at vari- 
ous timet proved hw friendabip by leudhjg 
money to the yonag coal dealer. It was, ia 
fact, with .money borrowed from Father

cess. It was thee* facts which made friend* 
or Father Kelly establish a connection in 
their ^mirnia between the attempt to poison 
Mr. Ryan's horses and tho subsequent at- 
terapto to take Father Eolly's life. I 

That the latter siiould bavn oceurre d ia a 
rornrise to the people of Onofda, f or p ftt her 
Kelly is dearly tytfoved by Ida congregation 
and he says that so far as ho knows he has 
not an enemy in tho world. 

Et. Patrick's church was not completed 
and ready for occupancy until Nov. 'U of 
last year, and from April, 1HS3 (when the old 
■tructura waa demolished), till that time eer- 
Ttcos wero held ( D 
the roller filiating 
rink. In this build- 
hip, which stande 
on ono of tlio main 
streets of the vil- 
lage, a temporary 
sacristy was fitted 
'ip. Oh the niorn- 
Ing of Tuesday, 
Oct. 8, Father 
Kelly went into thia 
»af.riuty to prepare 

for a special muss. »,~ ,.„-„ , „„..„

A young woman named Mary Terries had, 
when Borvtoes wore first held in tho rink, 
voluntarily assumed the duties of keeping it 
elean aud in order. On that Oetobei 
tng sho weiit about her work as usual aud 
when Father Kelly arrived she had al- 
ready poured the wino for tho morning's 
•ervico from tho bottle into the glass 
cruet used on such occasions, and hod 
placed the cruet on a table near tbo 
altar, where it would bo ready to Father 
■Kelly's hand. Father Kelly noticed, while 
moving about the sacristy, a small amount 
of white powder near where the bottle of 
communion wine had stood. He commented 
on this to Mi© Terriss, who said she had also 
noticed it, and they thought nothing more 
about it for the time. 
At tho offertory, as usual, Father Kelly

Almost instantly he realised that he bad 
been poisoned. Tho wine of the sacrament 
eeoiued tike liquid fire burning out his life. 
In his own words, "Tbo pain grow more in- 
tense eaeh instant, but I persevered in saying 
the mcs3 through before I had left the altar." 
As soon as ho stopped from the altar he called 
for help. A druggist and a doctor were sum- 
moned, emetics were administered, and the 
priest's lifo was saved, although ha was sick 
In bed for several days. 

As may bo imagined, the matter created 
great consternation in tho village. Investi- 
gation showed that tho door of tho rink could 
easily bo forced and, es no ono for a moment 
suspected Miss Terries, it was agreed that 
some ono must have gained entranco to the 
rink and placed the arsenic in tbo wine bot- 
tle. A chemist's analysis of tbo wino in tha 
bottlo showed that it contained enough poi- 
eon to kill a dossn man. Father Kelly at- 
tributed tho crime to some "cranfe," and the 
matter was allowed to rest there. 

On tho morning of the first day of tho year 
Father Kelly, who bod been at tbo church 
(which was then completed] until nearly mid- 
night at an entertainment, took a quartet of 
eingers— two ladies and two gentlemen, all 
from Utica— who had volunteered to sing for 
the occasion, to bis home to spend the night. 
About 1 o'clock in the morning they all re- 
tired; bat Father Kelly did not fall asleep 
readily, and at S a. m. was reading in bed. 

Suddenly the door bell was rung violently. 
Father Kelly dressed partially and went to 
the door. There be found some ono who held 
out a letter. Father Kelly stooped slightly 
to take the letter. Crash* a blow from a 
bludgeon in the hands of a mysterious visitor 
struck the priest on the baud and arm. This 
was followed almost instantly by another 
blow which struck the priest full on toe head. 
He fell, but as ho fell he shouted loudly for 
feelp. His assailant ran rapidly away just 
as the guests, roused fron their slumbers by 
theory of fee priest, arrived on the scene. 
In the morning a short, thick bar of rusty 
iron was foiled on the porch. IS was evi- 
dently the weapon that had been used ia this 
second attempt on the priest's life. 

There the matter stopped. Father Kelly 
had not had a good; enough view of his mid- 
night visitor to form any opinion as to 
identity or evento be sure of tha sex, al- 
thoughhis impression was that it was a- man 
who had struck him. Thus came about the 
mystery which has thrown Oneida into a 
ferment and badly ptizxled the detectives.

by the conductor, &£(. Albro, Ph. D. 
He also occupied tb&ilrat hour on tho

the next hour, was' unable to be pr. ■•- 
ont and CoiumltieionerW. A. Bahiuiu 
occupied tlie hour with a talk on Ge- 
ography. Hit) points were that fli-ut 
work on thif.L subject uhould be objee- 
tive—BUCh as the uchoiura would be 
able to thoroughly comprehend and 
were accustomed to. Tho study of the 
known should be UHod aa a batjiB for 
tho unknown. Apt llhintratiotiB were 
given to show the advantage gained 
bv following this plan. 

1 rof. J. Stump of the Oswego Nor- 
; was not hero Monday as Ji> wtin 
a>nounccd to bo on tho program, but 
in io be hero Friday and will oceupy 
'w or three hours in his work on 
«,',■ : fiion minerals. His hour Monday 
was taken by a discussion on what ib 
known ae tho Well's system of pen- 
manship in 'uso in the Syracuse and 
Fulton sehoolo. The main feature of 
the system being tiie forearm move- 
ment. Tho discussion was conducted 
by Conductor Albro and taken part 
in by Prof. Clapp, Com. Baldwin, Miss 
Kimball of Fulton Union School, Mias 
Hall of Scriba, and Miss Daly of Os- 
wego Town. The prevailing senti- 
ment seemed to be that the result of 
the system was good, easy penman- 


The Congregational church at Os 
wego Falls was secured for this lec- 
ture and those that attended listened 
to an ablo discourse in which much 
was learned of the celebrated Russian 
philanthropist and scholar Count Leo 
Tolstoi. Tho lecturer began with a 
description of tho Russian Empire 
and the drunken, degraded and pre- 
carious condition of the people. A 
bright oasis in this desert of depravi- 
ty was Tolstoi, whose history was 
traced in the learned lecturer's able 
manner from childhood to the pres- 
ent time. Ab a writerof allegories he 
was placed as the equal of John Bun- 
yon, as a writer of fableB the equal of a narrative writer the equal 
of Washington Irving. Illustrations 
of his writing under these styles were 
given. Mr. Tolstoi's philanthropic 
work and his eotive mind working for 
the good of his feilowmen were clear 
iy shown. Kid eou version to the 
Uhrisiiau belief whieu oouurrud some 
eleven years ago when he was tticy 
years of age lurtiUhud. a topic fur 
some ilftetn minutes of the speaker's 
lime, whim his characteristics of 
tU'ees and m..u. tr and his extreme 
hospitality showed ttie character of a 
man deserving of the high esteem in 
which he ia held by all who are fa- 
miliar w ith his works and d«eda. iiu- 
sio for the occasion was furnished by 
the Congregational choir which' was 
led by Mr. R. Harrison, 


Tho opening exercises were con- 
ducted by Prof. Albro. 

Hiss Ella Richardson, instructress 
indrawiogat tho Auburn city sohoois, 
began her work on. drawing occupy- 
ing the first and last hours of the 
forenoon session.'- The chief point 
made was that the aehoola'must have 
models for the successful acaoiuplish- 
ment of work. Class exercise in poiii- 
.tion of aetioiaraln drawing was given.

The final hour was taken! up in an-

the somewhat doubtful victory of lay-

Mr. Holraun startpd tlie lecond row. 
Hu took tin appeal on tlio ground that a 
bill reported from the Judiciary Com- 
mitteo appropriating money for a peni- 
tentiary mnBt first bo - considered in a 
Committee of the Whole. The House 
refuoed to over-ruloihe 8»enfcor. Then

in comparison with most members who 
take their seats and are afterward un-

been cases in recent years when mem-

General gives a personal hearing to 
some delegation from, a near-by town in 
the interest of eomo particular caodi

and the time consumed are both light, 
and tbo raaklog up of a delegation is as 
easy as organizing a country surprise 
party. It is when two of these delega- 
tions look horns that that the real tug 
of war begins, for two mortal hours 
tbie week Mr. Wanamaker listened to 
tho orators repteaeoting four different 
candidates for Easton,Md.,who were ail

The makers of th« Ball 
corset have a bon-fire two or 
three times a year to bum up 
the corsets that women have 
worn a week or two or three, 
and taken back to the stores 
because they didn't like 'em. 

How many corsets get 
burned, do you think ? One 
in three-thousandl 

That means that when 
three-thousand women try 
the Ball corset, one of 'em 
makes up her mind that it 
isn't the corset for her. 

That's too bad ! A corset 
that's right for two-thousand 
nine-hundred and ninety-nine 
women ought be pretty nearly 
right for the other one. Her 
husband must hav* his hands

In the Pulton Patriot ot Jan. 10 Is 
an article saying that the Palermo 
apondent of the PUMOH TlMRS 
said that G. B. Trimble had bought 
the Blake cheese factory in Granby, 
the correspondent begs to differ with 
the person who had that artiolo put 
in the Patriot, for the correspondent 
knew that the factory was in Hanni- 
bal and that Mr. Trimble owns two 
factories in Granby, also that the fac- 
tory needed some ohange. Now In 
the first must not think that 
if Mr. Blake niade a failure that ev- 
ery one else will, for the factory will 
make butter and eheeseneit summer 
and it will be for the farmer's interest 
of that place to patronize that fac- 
tory. One factory near Trimble's fac- 
tory last summer paid the patrons 
$4,055.90. Had the milk been made up 
at Trimble's factory it wouJ6V ; tiave 
paid the patrons 15.496.57, which 
would have been a benefit to the far- 
mers ot $539,67. Now X would like to 
ask the person who bad that pat in'

Nellie Bly completed her journey 
around the world on Saturday after- 
noon, arriving in Jersey City at 3:15, 
which was 72 days, 6 hours and U 
minutes from tha time she started. 
Her reception is reported as enthusi- 
astic. She was taken to the World 
office where she was congratulated 
by the editorial-and roportorial staffs. 

Miss Bly has wade the journey in 
much shorter time than it has ever 
been made before. She left Hoboken 
on the Augusta Victoria, November 
14, arrived at Southampton Novem- 
ber 32; visited Jules Verne at Amiens, 
Prance, and left Brindiai, Italy, No- 
vember 28, Aden, December 2; arrived 
at Colombo, Ceylon, December 8, 
and sailed on the 10th; arrived at 
Singapore, December 18; Hong Kong, 
December 24; arrived at Yokohama 
January 2, and sailed for San Fran- 
cisco on the '7th, arriving there on 
tbe 21st. Hor journey across the con- 
tinent onaspeoial train via the South- 
ern Pacific, Atlantic and Paclfle, 
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe and 
Pennsylvania railroads was' one of 
the quickest ever made. It was ac- 
complished iu four days, five hours 
and thirty minutes. 

In the din and excitement of Minr. 
'Bly's;rsturn and in. fact during the 
whole of her journey ao much rtofce 
and enthusiasm has been created by 
the Now York World, " the great met- 
ropolitan paper that sent her on the 
trip, that comparatively little atten- 
tion has been paid to another woman 
who started out on o similar trip in 
tbe Opposite direction on the same 
day aa'M.iss-Bfy. It wao Miss Elisa- 
beth Bisland who was sent out by

Vmtmg Wilder op fia;tml, 
A shrewd writer observes tlmr the 
farmer who continues to chop np 
oornatftika a-U other coarse feed by 
hand needn i wonder if Ida sons 
take a dlatike to farming: and quit It 
for some pleasaater employment the 
first opportunity. Many a young 
tunn leaves tho farm because he lias a 
liking for machinery, and desirea to 
work where ho will direct forces of 
steam or horse power rather thun do 
all with Wc muscles. Snob a young- 
liter is. just now' especially needed on 
the farm. More and moro ht skill with 
complicated mechanism needed in the 
ordinary operations of the farm. 
Probably in « few years a majority of 
farmers will find it profitable to keep 
a steam engine, to saw wood, out fod- 
der and furnish power for many oper- 
ations now performed by hand. Moro 
than a few boys have acquired a dis- 
taste for farming by being required 
Hour after hour to turn grindstones 
or swing the revolving churn. 

. IPowr fi'armmg: tstsd E'wuir BHorescsD 
Some one who is evidently a shrewd 
observer declares that poor farming 
ami poor horses go hand in hand— 

..that, like "birds of a feather," they 
'"flock together." And he further af- 
firms that or^e never sees a good crop 
of any kimi-faised by a It of broken, 
down. pings, or an inferior class of 
horses, .except where the land is &o 
productive that it would be impossi- 
ble h> raise a poor crop. *A poor farm 

; may be made much better by laiiniiifr 
«rops in the best possible manner. 
If deep ploughing is bi- B t, it cannot 
well be done, or dom* at all, with in- 
ferior horses. The preparation of the 
ground for planting i^ a laborious, and wi bout strong<-s it 
Ci-nnor be w?U dutu-, i u t,i 10 it, tlieie 

' is no "work on the farm tluu a «ood 
team cannot do to a better advantage 
than a poor one, and for that reason, 
if tiothiug else, a farmer standsin his 
■own light -when he tries t^ get along 
With an inferior class of horses.

Tho following etory of a mouliey'e 
heroism is told by an Indian paper: "A 
largo outang outang was very much at- 
tached to iiia master and to tho baby boy, 
who wao the pet of tho wholo family. 
One day a lire suddenly broke out in the 
house, and everybody was running hero 
and thereto put it out, while the littlo 
boy in hid nursery was almost forgotten, 
and when they thought of him the stair- 
case was all in flames. What could bo 
done? As they were looking up and 
wondering, a large, hairy hand and arm 
opened the* window, and presently the 
monkey appeared with tho baby in hia 
arms, and carefully climbed down over 
the porch, and brought tho child safely 
to hig nurse. Nobody else could have 
done it, for a man cannot climb like a 
monkey, and is not nearly so strong. 
You may imagine how the faithful crea- 
ture was praised and petted after that. 
This is a true story, and tho child who 
was saved was tho young Marquis of Kit- 

Crmvdpil Streets, 

Sonio statistics! recently published by 
the city of Berlin show that London 
streets are, on tho whole, tho most 
crowded of any city in Europe. In 1878 
it was ascertained that 43,014 people 
passed every 10 houra along tho Leip- 
ziger utraKso in Berlin, and in 1883, 
36,000 people crossed tho Jannowits 
bridge every 18 hours. The most crowd- 
ed bridge in Berlin is the Onuhin, over 
which 80,000 people pass every 18 hours. 
In 1884, 58,743 passed along tho Hunts 
Btmsso every Ifl hours, and 47,500 aloug 
tlio GetraiuHen strasse. In London it ia 
estimated. 110.535 pedestrians pass over 
London bridge daily; over Blackfriara, 
70,198; Westminster. -U,4C0i Waterloo,

paid her all unconsciously,. She raid it 
happened three oilier persons with her- 
self were approaching a crossing where

At, tho commencement of hit earner 
tho great Napoleon foil in with an ardent 
revolution tot, H, Paul Franooi* Barrafl, 
who took a Rreat liking to th* young 
Comican, and conceived the hlghewt 
opinion of his abilil.iot* and of the powere 
which, events proved, ho pOtweMed in bo 
reiiuu-kalile n degree. But in the opinion 
of Barras, Napoleon's want of means 
was a most serious obstacle to Ills chance 
of achieving fame, and he propoae* to 
remedy this by selecting lor bimarfeh 
wife. Now, xvhtither ft wn tha* fc* did 
not numlier among his acquaintances 
many women with tiie requisite Hot, or 
whether ho thought that his portCRo'a 
fiery youth would bo better for tho re - 
utraininj; influenco wliich awife of Romo 
ejtpericiiico in tho ways of tho world 
would no doubt bo ablo tooxort, Barras 
chose for tiiifi pooition a woman who, 
though still undeniably handsome, wafl 
no loiiRor young. 

Tiioiigh flho wno cnilod MHo. Montao- 
sier, nho irnii In reality a widow, who, 
because alio had been on the etago, had 
never adopted tho name of her husband. 
Sho was 60 yeani of ajro, but it xvas maid 
that tihn nuulo hornolf appear to l>o not 
moro than -10 by the intimato Icnowl- 
oiIro that Bhe possese^d of tlio sacrota of 
the toilet table. 


Barrna made up hb mind that it woa 
imperative to (ho oucocaa of Napoleon's 
career tliat ho should mako tliiu elderly 
Indy his wifo, and accordingly ho set 
himcclf to work to bring about tho 
match by impressing upon each of them 
tho advantages that would result from 
it. To Naiioleon ho diluted upon tho 
power tliat would follow the acquisition 
of tiio wealth which Mile. Montanoica 1 
could give him; to the lady ho enlarged 
on the position that bis talented youug 
friend was bound to make foe hiinsaif, 
and that would, of eourso. bo tihared by 
hia wifo. 

For tho purooso of introducing the 
couplo to each other, he decided 
bpoii giviiifj a supper, to which they 
wore both iuvitod. Ho so arranged 
maUoni that tiioy were placed togetiier 
at the table, and hoped that thia procau- 
tiou, added to the injuuetiono which ho 
had given to Napoleon to behave for 
obco ia his life with bojuo show of cJTfi- 
ity to a lady, would liavo tho happiest re- 
sult. But in this ho was fated to bo dis- 
appointed. Napoleon was quite tho lost 
man to rely upon in such a respect. Hb 
manners toward tho fair box wore tliosa 
of a costcrmongor, and though he could 
generally hold his own in a convomtfen 
with men, ho was entirely without the 
knack of making himsolf interesting ox 
agreeable to women. Ho felt that his 
placti was in the camp or the field, and 
he was quite out of his element amosig 
tho conventionalitieii of a salon. 

Had he been inclined to woo, 16 woald 
have been in a straightforward, soldier 
like fashion, not with the dairyings and 
compliments so dear to tho Frenchwoman 
of his time. So, presently, Barras had 
the mortification of seeing Mile. Montoan- 
sier, her back turned to Napoleon, en- 
gaging in a lively conversation with the 
gentleman on tho other sfdo, while the 
f utuvo conqueror was making, with little 
pcllcti) of bread, a plan of battle on the 
table before him. Hardly a word passed 
between the two during tho remainder 
of tile meal. Barrna watched with grow-

' Supper orer, Barraa drew Napoleon 
aside and spoke forcibly to him of the : 
foolish way iu which he was throwing 
away his chances. "You know," eaid 
he, "that money is everything to you; 
hero are 1,000,000 francs, and you will 
not stretch out your hand to take them; 
a most attractive woman, and you will 
not show her tho smallest gallantry. 
Mile. Mon tan sior has come hero this 
evening prepared to hear o declaration 
from you. Strike while the iron ia hot, 
aud win the wealth that you cannot do 
without at one bold stroke." 

"The woman is old enough to bo my 
grandmotl>er," said Napoleon, w1h> was 
then 3f> years old; "but that is no mat- 
ter, for to me all woriton are alike. 
Money is what I wanE; and, if I cannot 
get it without a wife, I must take tho 
two together. I ana no coiner of pretty 
speeches, but before the evening is over 
I will say to her: 'Mademoiselle, are 
you willing to accept me as your hus- 
band?* More than that I cannot do." 

"The very kind of proposal that any 
woman would expect from a blunt sol- 
dier," replied Barras. "Say that, aud "I 
desire no mora. Yoa are to be envied; 
for, besides her wealth, mademoiselle U 
very handsome still." 


Napoleon turned away with a gesture 
of impatience; but half an hour later 
BiU'ras noticed, to his joy, that the two 
weroolouetogetherinurccess, Presently 
Napoleou got up and went away; and 
the lady beckoned to Barras with her 
fan. "Take away that dreadful little 
man," she said with a shudder; "he has 
bored rae to death, and I only prevented 
him from proposing by sending him for 
a glass of lemonade. 1, 

"But why prevent him?" said Barras. 
"He will be a great man yet." 

"Give myself and my money to such a 
tittle horror, such as ill-mannemt boor 
as that !" replied mademoiselle. "N«T«rt 
1 would. sooner take the firat beggar man

"You may say," ho replied, as if ho 
were conferring a favor, "tha* our gas 
meters will run thia year as usual

four layers of tausoolfcr akina which, 
witii tlio "sheil," give to the horse the 
great and tremendous pulling power that 
noakeo the animal oo uervicealtdo to man- 
kind. This "shell," If properly tanned 
iand shaven clean of its sinewy matter— 
a most difficult task— makes the best 
wearing leather ia existence, and prov&j 
tho theory of old time shoemakers — that 
only leather of a long flber will wear — 
to bo a mistaken ono, as tho "ehell" has 
no flber. 

In this it has a decided advantage over 
oalfakin with its fibers; tho breaking of 
any one throws additional strain upon the 
other, and n break in the leather coon fol- 

Experience has demonstrated that tho 
"ehell" will wear two or three times long- ;

Cordovan possesses another great ad-

The Indian to Llterntaro. 

Cooper is eaid, by Bradnor BSatehews, 
to have been the first author who mtro- 
dnced the rod man into literature. This 
has been disputed, and it is alleged that 
"Chateaubriand, who visited the new 
world in the year of Cooper's birth, cer- 
tainly did not neglect the noble savage." 
But here are some mistakes. Chateau- 
briand was in America in 1791, when 
Cooper was 2 years old. His "Atala," 
a tale of Indian life, appeared in 1891. 
Cooper's first novel appeared anonymous- 
ly in 1818, and hie "Last of tlio Mohi- 
cans" in 1820. But Thomas Campbell 
had introduced the Indian to English 
literature hi his "Gertrude of Wyoming," 
wnich appeared in 1S09. Bat Alexander 
Pope's lines, beginning "Lo, tha poorln- 
duln, ,, appeared about 1733, more than 
fifty years before Cooper was born; and 
It certainly refers to the red man of 
America, for the poet adds thae his 
"humbler heaven" is a place

TJto next puzslo oq Sua list, ond on-a 
which comes tho oftoaest to our desk, in 
come form of a problem which proposos 
to divide a whole utim Into fractious that 
together did noi mako the dividajid. 
Tho original of this in our columns was 
an answer to an actual case where a 
man in hia will had devised ono-thlrd, 
one-fourth, one-£f& aad wm aiTnb oi 
hia property respectively to bis four 
children, supposing that he had thoedo- 
vbad tho whole of- his estate. Tho frsto- 
tions mentioned only made ninc&sea- 
tweatietfei of a wtadg ouaibcr. This is 
easily seca if th^f are rodrjced to a cse> 
nwa denominator. One-thud ia ftwenfcy- 
taxtieslo, cao-four&h ia Sftees-sisSs^s, 
oae-fiftb ia tweive-aiEtioaig, raad eao- 
sistb ia ten-sixtieths, which together 
mako bat fifty-seven sixtieths, isaving 
three-clxfeieSlia (or 1-S0£h> to mnko up 
Sho wfeolg number. 

Thia pusslo reappearo in ecaao form 
every few days the year round. It ic 
answered on the same principle involved 
in tho interpretation of the Arab's will. 
Ho had fifteen horses and four sons. Ho 
devised his estate, giving one son a half, 
another d quarter, another an eighth 
and the last s siirteenth. They foond ft 
impossible to agree on a division, The 
eldest son insisted fchat aa ssven horses 
would not bo half of fifteen he should 
havo eight; but the other sons objected, 
and as neither one-half, ono-foarth, one- 
eighth nor one-sixteenth would give 
either son an oven lot they had a fierce 
dispute over tho division. A vsaerablo 
sheik rode up just as the quarrel waa et its 
height, and to compose their differences 
dismounted and generously offered to 
add hia mare to the fifteen belonging to 
the estate, agreeing that each slio-tiia 
take his allotted share from the wholo 
sisteen, only stipulating tliat his should 
be the last selected, The addition mndo 
an easy solution of 6ho difficulty. The 
first then took eight as his "half of 
the sisteen, tho nest took four fox his 
quarter, the third took two for his 
eighth, and the fourth took one for hia 
sixteenth. As this made baC fifteen the 
sheik mounted his mare and rode away, 
Tho Arab boys regarded 16 aa a miracle, 
and exclaimed that -Allah hod given a 
horeo to the sheik for his generous inter- 
ference, la spite of this oft told tale the 
problem still survives and annually paa- 
Eles hundreds of oor countrymec. 

A more recent problem which we have 
already answered several tiaies, bat 
which is repeated every week from some 
quarter, is the division of one fxactaou 
by another. The original question which 
we answered several years ago was: 
"What is the quotient of two-thirds di- 
vided by one-halfr The unthirddog per- 
son would say that as the half of two- 
thirds is one-third, this uutt be the solu- 
tion of the problem, but DiaboU will easi- 
ly refute it. The quotient of 24 divided 
by i is 1 1-3; that is, j will go in S-S one 
aadone-rthird times. The last form of 
tho problem, received as we write this, 
is to find the quotient of I divided by 4, 
two partners ina leading banking house, 
having disputed, as they say, all one day 
over the result, the senior maintaining 
that 1 divided by' g is |, and defying any 
one to refute it We answer that whea 
1 ia divided by £ the quotient mS; that 
is, i will he foaed two timasin 1. U # 
be divided by j Uie answer is IS; that is, 
there are twelve halves in six. We 
should beg pardon of oar readers for te- 
pcatina; these denionsrxatioas if it were 
not for the cusra> 

Uie disputes which occur every day con

"It was just about dusk. Tho streets 
is-ere crowded with people going home 
from work, and in the room half a dozen 
Chinamen were buoy ironing at different 
tables. A cool oil lamp that hung in tha 
balk window had just been lighted. A 
good deal of oil had been spilled on Safe

"A Chin a m an en tha far aid© of the

" Throw tho lamp into tho street!'

PIUNTE8 1 INK is the title of a little 
journal issued by Geo. P. Itowell & 
Co., of New Yorlt, in the interests of 
advertisers. Millions of dollars are 
annually spent in advertising, and 
much of the money falls of achieving 
the end for which it was expended, 
Phihtsrs' Ink gives all sorts of use- 
ful and intelligible instruction as to 
how to make every dollar spent in ad- 
vertising tell. All business men 
should subscribe. Its subscription 
price is S3.00 a year, 

Newspaper subscribers in arrears 
should bear in mind that a dun is not 
an mipt'aohmont of their integrity, 
but simply an out-cropping of a pub- 
lisher's necessity. For in stance, a 
thousand men owe him from one to 
five dollars each. It is a small 
'amount to each individual, but to the 
publisher the aggregate is large.- In- 
slead of beooiiiing indignant because 
the public-API- 'sska for his honest 
dues, the de'inquent should be grate-

The nnmber of public building bills 
introduced tbia seejiion as something 
amazing. There liavo already been 245 
audi billa laid before Congress, being a 
larger number than were presented dur- 
ing the entire Fiftieth Congress, and 
triple the uuniber introduced during the 
first two monlhn of Us first session, The 
billa call for an average expenditure of 
about $100,000, calling for a total outlay 
of $38,000,000. Of course, comparative- 
ly few of these bills will pass the House, 
and those that do pass wtll be cut down 
heavily in the amount of Appropriation, 
Chicago, with commendable modesty, 
comeo forward with a request for §2,- 
000,000 for a new building, although 
the one occupied is one of the largest in 
the country and was elected only four- 
teen years ago.

A special to tlia Commercial Gazette 
om Louiavilh.', Ky., says that, Bill 
Nye, the humorist, and Jamoa Whit- 
comb Riley, the- Hoooier dialect poet, 
who have been traveling through the 
country giving readings of their writ- 
ings 1 , have dissolved partnership. The 
cause of the trouble is sensational, 
and wiil pain and surprise the thous- 
ands who iiave been entertained by 
Mr. Riloy'e humor and pathos. Mr. 
Nye saya that Mr. Riley has become 
a confirmed drunkard. The manager 
of the combination eays that hie case 
iB hopeless, and that he has been com- 
pelled to cancel numerous dates, and 
Riley 'm conduct has been a continual 
cause of anxiety and expense. The 
abrupt termination of the tour which 
waa to have embraced the Pacific 
coast and the British possession and 
lasted until May 2d, means a Idas of 
about $30,000. Nye remains in Louis- 
ville until his wife joins him. 

Tlio Ceeitury. 
The Century Magazine for Febru- 
ary opens with a very attractive full 
length engraved portrait of Ralph 
Waldo Emerson, as he appeared 
about 1859. The face, the pose, the 
expression are strong and suggestive 
of that modest great soul which 
dwelt there. Charles J. Woodbnry 
supplies some absolutely new matter 
about the famous aesayiot in "Emer- 
son's Talks with a College JBoy. " This 
is the mid-winter number of the Cen- 
tury, and is so designated on the 
handsome title cover designed by 
Elihu Vedder. It contains more than 
the usual amount of excellent read- 
ing. Artist John La Farge writes 
about Japan, and draws hiss own illus- 
trations. Walt Whitman writes a 
brave defiance to death and old age, 
in an eight line poem of great 
strength and pathetic appealirjgness. 
Jo Jeiiorsou's auto-biographicai ser- 
ies coutains a comical account of a 
fight between a baker and 'a cook in 
Paris, whiuh relates the somewhat 
sober pages about actor Forrest.. 
"The Pursuit and Cupture of Jeffer- 
son Davis" is described by two care- 
ful historical writers, General James 
ii. Wilson and Edmund P. Stedmau. 
"Topics of tho Time" coutuinB a grati- 
fy iug compliment to ftjeth Low, the 
new president of Columbia, culleye 
and university. 

Kilrum, the piug-ugly who was 
soundly thiuaued by $uie big Boston 
bruie >v. has lougut anotu^r prize- 
fight, nutwitiis.aodiug his cringing 
pleti Co the governor of Mississippi to 
be letoff frompunL-tiiuieut f >r liolet- 
ug the laws ot that state and his 
promise to do so no more. The laEeSt 
crime was committed on cmuday, in 
the full light of day, in the city of 
New Orleans and under the protec- 
tion of the police of the Crescent city. 
It was a shameful and brutal exhibi- 
tion. The laws of Louisiaua and the 
officials charged "with enforcing' them, j 
must be wholly inefficient if this bold 
defiance to decency is allowed to go] 
unpunished. The affair proves how 1 
utterly wasted and uiistttken is any | 
leniency shown to brutes of the Soili- 
van-Kiirain stamp -when the law has 
them in its clutches.— rTroy Time3.

What do doctors know 
about corsets? 

They know a good deal 
more sometimes than they 
dare give their patients the 
benefit of 1 

What are they afraid of ? 

Losing their patients. 
Many a woman would throw 
her doctor overboard sooner 
than change her corset 

What do women know 
about corsets ? 

The doctors and women 
together know all there is to 
be known. They all agree 
that Bali's is the proper 
corset , 

You can go to your store 
and get it and wear it two or 
three weeks and get your 
money again, every cent of 
it, if you want it. 

The store has a primer on 
Corsets for you.

This magazine is ono peculiar to it- 
self. It, isalways woll illustrated and 
a native of New tingluud that get a 
number is sure to find something that 
will interest him thoroughly. The 
February number eontains two illus 
t rated aiohiteclural articles. "A 
Model Village Library" and "Recent 
Church Architecture in Boston." 
The latter is without donht the most 
richly illustrated article that has yet 
appeared in this magazine. "The 
White Mountains in Winter" is the 
first article and it is charminly writ- 
ten and illustrated. There are two 
'articles relating "New Enalaud and 
California" pointing out the social 
contrast of the two sections and show- 
ing what each may learn from the oth- 
er. The stories and poetry oft he num- 
ber are more than ordinarily inter- 
esting and the number altogether is 
to be pronounced emphatically the 
most attractive of the sis numbers 
which have appeared, completing tin 
first voluiuo.

The sno shone brightly al times 
Sunday, and if the traditional bear 
came out of hia winter retreat on that 
day, he relieved his warning that the 
next sis weeks would be muoh too 
cold and stormy for him. Therefore, 
as the old story goes, he crept back 
into his den. In the Roman Catholic 
church throughout the world the day 
was observed as the celebration of 
the feast of the Purification of the 
Blessed Virgin Mary. Commonly it 
is called Candlemas, because on this 
day the candles prescribed for divine 
service are blessed by 'the priests at 
the conclusion of a high mass. The 
candles must be made of beeswax. 
This is so imperative that the church 
has preferred to have even her most 
sacred rites performed without lights 
rath r than have those used that 
were not made of this material. The 
very word candle (Latin candela) in 
the language of the church signifies 
a candle made of beeswax. Tallow, 
sperm, parraffine, patent was, or any 
other than beeswas candles cannot 
be blessed and are forbidden to b© 
used for divine service. Candles must 
be blessed on Candlemas day in order 
to recieve the fullest benefits of the 
blessing and at a special service for 
the purpose. However the faithful 
can have candles made sacred by 
their spiritual adviser at any time 
during the year. 

It is an ancient and praiseworthy 
custom for Catholics to procure at 
least one wax candle for this d&y, and 
after it has been blessed, to take it 
home to burn at the bedside of the 
dying, during a storm, while reciev- 
inga Call from their paator, or for 
any other proper end, as the church 
wishes. Grood- Catholics are not sat- 
isfied with this alone; they offer one 
or more caudles for the service of the

Tho hitter, bad for yonru occuplod the posi- 
tion of advisor — of right hand almost — to hi:i 
father, aud batwuun rather mid boh bad been 
woven bonda of affection uuuainUly strong. 

WaUs'or Dlaiiio wns born In AugiiHtn, Me., 
May 8, 1865, nnd had his 0rnt taste of Wush- 
iugtoii llfo In 181W, when bia l'atbei* bad bwn 
In congreffl fl v u 
years. Ho gradu- 
ated from Talo col- 
lego iu 1876, mid In 
1678 completed his 
course at the Co- 
lumbia Low school. 
Us thon practiced 
law In tho office of 
Cushman E. Davis 
Foul. In 18S1 ho 
pocelved his first of- 
ficial appointment, 
that of third assist- 
ant secretary o f 
state, nnd while 
holding this posltk 

corataissloiier to Peru during thu trouble bo. 
tweon that country and Chill. After Presi- 
dent Garfleld'o death bo noted an bis father's 

After this ho wna mode assistant attorney 
for tho goverumout boforo tho Alabama 
claims coart in Washington and did eomo 
good legal work. When tho coart was abol- 
ished yomig Blnine went west and formed a 
law partnership in Chicago with Goorgo S. 
WUiite, now a partner of tho Hon. Lyman 
TrumbulL Ho made many friends and eoon 
established a good practice. 

Ho finally left the west, however, and went 
to How York, and from there to Washington 
not long before his father received the ap- 
pointment of secretary of state. Tho very 
night of his arrival in Washington ho made 
a misstep while alighting from a cab aud 
broke his leg. For many weeks hewasunablo 
to leavo his homo. Upon his recovery bo was 
appointed solicitor of tho state department. 

Walker Blaine had charge of all his fa- 
ther's strictly private and confidential af- 
fairs, and wns undoubtedly a youiiK man of 
unusual ability. Few men were better 
known in Washington than was he, and he 
was very popular, pn -ujulurly among news- 
paper men, 

Ahuoufb lio was by no means a society 
man, ho nft-.m tiueuh'd tl.s r£fvp;ious and 
other social e^euis wUch piny eo l-ir^e a

cles bo was a general favorite. 

HnwTon T.o=te a S!« s te Day. 
What you will lose- or gain U you go round 
tho world is a date, not u day. fn travelins 
westward each date, commonly called a dny, 
hides the fact that for each degree of l-;p- 
tudo passed over you have added four .l'i- 
utcs *to the twenty-four hours. If at noon, 
when by custom you change your date, you 
will find you havo traversed fifteen degrees, 
then, "your day" has contained twenty -five 
hours instead of twenty-four. In going to 
the eastward tho conditions would bo re- 
versed, and your dato coiled * "day" would 
contain but twenty-three hourk But, if you 
and your friend should stand back to back at 
Sew Tork and, starting at the same instant, 
walk straight round the world, each walking 
Mtactly three miles an hour, and cover stop- 
pins for anything, you would both meet and 
pass half way ia exactly 8,500 hours, and you 
would again mut in. Saw York iu exactly

At length Governor Bross beard the

ho hed ouco hod a brother named Stephen 
Decatur Bross. , ,, 

Tliat brother, in 1854, loft hia homo in Now 
Jersey for Now York city, ojnl was never 
again heard of. Governor Bross wont to Col- 
orado, and after a lengthy soar civ found Do- 
«atur's ranoii in tbo mountains— in it a "Mr«. 
Decatur," a comely Indian woman I hi a f«w 
miuutostho mountoiueor returnad. and woo 
recognized at once. 

"Stcpbcn, my brother, my long lost broth- 
er 1" almost eobbed tbo governor. 

Decatur for a fow minutes stood perfectly 
still, curiously oytos tho maa who had 
costedhtm. Then bo gruffly eaid: """- 

"Why, don't you know me, Stephen* I 
. am William Bj'oss, your oldest brother." 
"1 never saw you before in my lifo." 

"Why, Stephen Bross. how" 

"I tell you, sir, that you nro mistaken. 
My name is not Bross. 1 never board tho 
n&mo before. My namo is Decatur." 

"Yes, brother, I know it is— Jtepbeu Do- 
"Bo, sir; it is Stephen Decatur." 
In vain did Uovcruor Bross cito such proofs 
rs old sears and birth marks; they were all 
on Stephen's body, but ho "know no such 
roan as Bross." In 1STU Decatur wascoin- 
, niissioned to represent Colorado at thocen- 
tennlal, and visited Governor Bross for sohto 
■ days at Chicago,, but made no.sign. Ho was 
long's familiar figure at Georgetown, Colo., 
aud there I maio hi3 acquaintance in the cum-

though ii was but tor three weeks. Liko 
r ' toany otners, I saw in "Commodore" Deca- 
tur a marked resemblance to some ouo I had 
fenawn, but could.not name tbo man. 

A year later, however, I became well ac- 
quainted with tho "commodoro," and then, 
. liavina meanwhile heard tho story, I saw in-

hundred acres ot tbo foot of tho mountain, 
built a magnificent Quoon Anno, established 
his Bon there- as farmer and manager, and 
reserved for bimsolf nnd tbo main household 
apartments that should Borvo as a summer 
annex to bis parlors at tho Fifth Avenue. 

Rut "'twas over thus;" ho hod summered 
on tho Sbinnomunk two seasons. Ho was 
not supposed to winter there awl *i07or tried, 
yer. somehow those two mimmora had not ro- 
vcaleil the possibilities of Shinnomnnk in | 
deathly loneliness, so unlike tbo avenue, and 
Newport, nnd Saratoga, that the heart of 
num. quailed before tlio prospect of a life sen- 
tonco there oven for summorsonly. True, tho 
valloy prospect, with Cromwell loko nestling 
ntouiy itmilo'M distance, was charming. A 
short climb would bring tho noblo Iludson 
into vlow. Yet, ns naympatliotic friend who 
has been ttiore expresses it, you leave all the 
loveliness behind yon, climb tlio mountain 
road up tbo gentto nlopo, pass bouso after 
house until you como U> tho lost, which IsTom

bis Kow York home during times of political 
excitement. Then in vain bo sighs for his 
wilderness lodge, for sinco bo will bo a mogul 
in public affairs ho must face tbo inevitable 
and meet innumerable callers whoso missions, 
however important to themselves, are, value- 
less to him. At his business offices it is easy 
to mauaae, liko tho Irishman's master, to "go 
out twisht to the waust hocomesin," for thoro 
are outyide fwntinels, hisido sentinels aud

At hia hotel the problem is not so easy, but 
when he is in and does not want to be, to tbo 
ruthless invaders, ot privacy tbo hotel clerk 
answers to all call -=-ra -who ask, "la Mr. Piatt 
hero*" a sweet and smilbis "I don't know!" 
Now, if tho clerk doesn't know— and as ho 
says ho doesn't it is probably true— who does 
know? Tho register will tell tho dato of bis

or a month back. Tho givcj|»way toy in

Out. in Indian territory thoy bavo some 
queer people. A corrcspoiMleut of Tho How 
York Sun, writing from McAllister, I. T., 
mentions tho death recuutly of c man named 
Burton Colbert. 

Colbert was !il years old at tho time of hia 
death. Tho sou of a farmer noor Utiea, N. 
Y., bo got Into trouble when ho was 20 and 
skipped to Fort Smith, Ark. 

Ono day while ho was piloting a. drummer 
thoy' were iii a fitoro kept by an- Indian. 
TIici-o happened to be a dozen mon, mostly 
half breeds, nbout who auc-mpted to get 
away with tbo drummer's goods. Colbert 
turned in and shouting "Hands upl" en- 
forced tho order by killing two of thorn, 
whereupon ovory man took to flight. Col- 
bert ordered the drummer to "gather up bis 
duds," und then drove him hastily away. 

Over in the Creek nation was a family by 
tho name of Crenshaw, They wero bona 
thieves by vocation, and practiced hishway 
robbery as »a n vocation They bad umr- 


slices connected with this time, called in tho 
popular parlanCd "Masllnnitxa," Which means 
"Butter Week." This appallatfoa to derived 
from tlio fact that, accordlne to thenilesof 
tlio Creek chwroh, carnival week is to bo cet 
apart as-preparatory to tb» black fast kept 
up throughout tlio seven weolw that Lent 
lnsto. Already meat 13 probibit«<J from nsa 
durb»s carnival week, thounb butter, milk, 
and cgg-i (all of which are also forbiddon to 
tho ortljodoif during I*nt> are- allowed, fo bo 

Well do I remember a young KngllsbmsS, 
who assured me, in all earnestness, that car- 
nival la called "Butter Weak" fa Russia, bs- 
caut^o tho nativea aro in tho habit ot suspend- 
ing o. large piece of butter on a strbag from 
tho coiling of tho dining room of each honco, 
every member of tbo household coming up 
end taking a bito at it now and tlton. How, 
this 13 a very funny concoption, bat still I 
must beg loavo to repudiate such a baca re- 
flection on tho good iMf*» ftbd efpso of my 
countrymen. Butter is ea.t«u >n large quan- 
tities, it is true, butj not in th* manner sug- 
gested by my smart British friend. It 1b 
carved melted hot aC every meal of tho car- 
nival week, to bo cat*n with buckwheat 
cakes, called "bllny," of which there nro con- 
cumed onormous quantities, many a young 
fellow making wagora to cut as many ns 
tweuty-9 vo cake3 at ono sitting. Tbeso buck- 
wheat cakes— Jhoeamo ns are used thropglv 
out tho States— are served as hot as poasiblo; 
often, for variety's aako, chopped e#ga nro 
mixed with the dough, or else a peculiar kind 
of diminutive- fiab, an inch orEoin length, 
which is called "enotky."

scale, thoro being no benevolent municipali-

A race for it was oil tliat was left It fell

making straight for tho Crenshaw cabin on 
tbo north fork of Polecat creak. He had

family. While considering what he should 
do Colbert saw Crenshaw's daughter slip 
away from tho house and go off up tho creek 
alone. He followed her carefully until she 
sat down on a mossy bank 200 -yards away. 
Ho saw that she kept looking up tho stream 
os if ea^octing someone. He saw that the 
girl was looking for a lover, and determined 

Notwithstanding '.the abstinence &a joined 
by tho church, gluttony reigns supremo dur- 
ing the week in question; all classesof tho 
people eat buckwheat cakee ftnd drink mora 
than is goad for them— in hovels as well as io 
tho palaces. Among well to do peoplo "bliny" 
parties ore organized oa all ElSes— tbs mono 
ganerally consisting of eups of clenr "feowU- 
lon, n soveral cnurses of hot "Winy" or buck- 
wheat cakes, some game and alight r kind of 
pastry, nothing but champaKn* being drunk 
at such a meal. Masqiiernda balls, dancing 
andtheatro parties prevail among tberica, 
but neither aro the lower classeaof .tba-citieB' 
forgotten at that time, Tha municipality of 
ovory city causes larga barracks to be erected 
on tho best availablo open space inside -fee 
city Um*ts, and in those barracks cheap com- 
edy is enacted, all kinds of carioeties and 
freaks aro o^Ktsed, panoramaa ara displayed, 
and last, but by no means least, "Poneb and 
iJudy" aro shown in all their glory— in Russia 
just as in England, the clubbingof tha police- 
man being tha most popular fsaturs of the 
show.- ■ ' ■■ 

Klaewbera on the same space great swings 
are erected, and thosa *re almost as well'-pa- 
tromiedby tbo lower classes as ax» tb&isa 
mountains near by. These mountains, some 


fellows put on fur coats wrong sido out and 
occasionally walk, grurablingiy, on all fours 
personifying bears, while others again make 
upas goats and spin round on stilts. Par- 
ties of young village people parado tho 
streets in such disguises to tbo accompani- 
ment of a harmonium or a guitar and tho wild 
yells of tbo delighted small boy. 
" 'iiowvery widespreadaretbemode3of cele- 
brating carnival obtaining in Russia proper is 
shown by the fact that even tho Oeetio3, in 
the faraway mountainous Caucasus, eagerly 
avail themselves of the least fall of snow in 
order to organize a. kind of tobogganing in 
their own fashion. 

Many observances portalning to tho pagan 
period of Russian history ara revived in tho 
popular customs prevailing at carnival, tho 
most curious among such being the "Burn- 
ing of tho Carnival in Efilgy." This custom 
is upheld mostly in the provincial places dis- 
tant from tlio capital, and quite a curious 
end significant custom it is—of indisputably 
pagan origin. A largo efflgy of the Carnival 
—or, more properly speaking, of tha Winter- 
is mad© out of straw and rags tied with ropes. 
This efilgy ia seated in a sleigh, a broom is 
stuck in its hand and au old wheel set on a 
pole at its back. 

Tho villagers, young and old, walk by tha 
sleigh, laughing, joking, dancing and sing- 
ing, wbila o young fellow— the readiest wit 
the community affords— is seated on the edge 
of the sleigh and, holding a sheet of white 
paper in his liand, is pretending to read from 
it the decree of capital, penalty against the 
Carnival. The young fellow's improvisation 
runs smoothly as he proceeds to tell is 
that Carnival has incurred condemnation, 
who wero tho people it led into temptation, 
and wbat aro tbo means for them to reform— 
foremost among wliicb is to burn tbs naughty 
Carnival This last ritois performed amidst 
much frolic and jollity in, tbo first field outside 
the village. 

Serious inTestisators of Russian folk lora 
and national customs are most positive in 
their assertions that tho burning of the Car- 
nival is but » survived of the olden time 
pagan burning of the Winter. Withthecar- 
aivsl tbo winter amusements are at an end, 
as well as tao winter frosts, and the efilgy of 
Winter isburned then by way of emphasising 
tho fact that it has So mala way for spring 
and warmth, which tatter, in *a burning 
of tho Carnival, is represented by the wheel 
set on a polo against tho effigy's back, a 
wheel; being thesyiaboUe personification of 
tbo sun, and that not only among the Slavs, 
but likewise among the nations of Gernianlc 
origin. Mas, B. Ma66ajiah.

The festival is closed with her winding a

uting gifts to those persona who have

their fidelity in intention to the earo of

Tl:is ceremony, which ia one of Ihe 
uio^t important of those her majesty has 
to perform durin™ the year, is a great 
ir.cMiiivu to the siilk raising population, 
who cannot neglect their own work 
when they see their sovereign occupied 
in the same way. An old proverb says 
that "an idle farmer causes two persons 
f to die of hunger, and a woman who will

couragement, and shows that silk worm

The comparatively 
s are incited by the heavy 
v, and the iusuilicient floors 
■r tho weight of material, 
in a veritable death trap. 
passages thread bewilder- 
ing and crowded ways; Kvorywhero 
are workmen crowded into the leash 
possible space and surrounded by the 
finest machinery atul the most costly 
material that money can buy. There 
are stacks and stacks of electrotype 
plates that could only be reproduced 
at the cost of many thousands of dol- 

3S T lie light in the building is not 
good, but is brilliant compared with 
the ventilation and the heating. The 
over-crowding in such times as dur- 
ing tho last recess, when the last of 
3,000 bills were being put into type 
for Congress, only serves to retard 
work. About the only things that 
can be said for the building is that 
it is located near the Capitol, which 
is of importance to espediate the bus- 
iness of the Record, and that tlie lo- 
cation is iu a neighborhood where 
employes of moderate means can live 
near their work. 

The necessity of using only fire- 
proof buildings can not bo overesti- 
mated. The Treasury department 
was once destroyed by fir.-; the Pat- 
ent office has been twice damaged bv 
Tire; the Congressional library and 
the Smithsonian have also suffered 

One of the most crying need?, 
though of course it is more a matter 
of local interest, is for a new city post 
oilice. The present building is a mis- 
erable shell, unsafe and unhealthy. 
No city of its size in this countrv lias 
such an inferior postoffice building. 

The tourist who see3 tlie capitol 
and the main department buildings 
nnd go saway with the idea thai tlie 
government's business is ransacted 
in palaces, departs in blissful igno 
ranee of the evils that niggardly Icg- 
islauoii have perpetuated, uu il the 
day of reform can be no longer de- 

Tlie mourning of the families of 
Secretaries Blaine and Tracy throws 
a sombre pall over society, and in 
administrative circles the feeling of de- 
pression is oppressive. The 1- resident repeated misfortunes to 
the members of his Cabinet as person- 
al sorrows. "Old women of both 
sexes" as Victor Hugo calls theui, 
murmur that this an hnlueky admin- 
istration,, It certainly is not a hap- 
py one just now. 

Secretary Tracy bears the shocking 
loss of his wife and daughter with 
singular fortitude, hardly -realizing in 
in its fullest seuse ihe measure of his 
"bereavement. It is expected that he 
-will go abroad with, bis son and re- 
maining daughter. 

Secretary Blaine's loss of his daugh- 
ter, following as it did no closely the 
death of his favorite son, impresses 
him deeply, how deeply may be seen 
in his changed and aged appear- 
ance.. ';■ 

A wrong corset tortures or

The Electric Collecting Agency" 
of Syracuse, which is doiug consider 
able business in Fulton aud Oswego 
Falls, recteve about a column article 
in Monday's Syracuse Herald con- 
cerning the methods of doing but-i- 
nesB, which are such that if the debt- 
or does not make -arrangements for 
settlement he has to undergo law-, 
suits; traveling expenses to 'Vistant' 
parts' to attend courts and lo>s of 
time, If not of position, (haT. arrange- 
ments are usually made for settle- 
ment immediately. Several lawyers 
to whom the matter has been sub- 
mitted say that if a test were made 
the proceeding would be put under 
the head of a misdemeanor. Thus 
far the "Electric Collecting Ageney'< 
of Syracuse has not met with sneh a 
reverse, however.

The auction sale of tho Riverside 
and Oswego mills, at Providence ad- 
vertised to take placo was last Thurs- 
day lost, was postponed by order of 
the assignees. They decided to post- 
pone it on account of the request to 
that effect of over 90 per cent, of the 
creditors, representing §3,800,000 in- 
debtedness. Tho creditors come in 
under the trust scheme of settlement. 
This trust, managed by three trus- 
tees, was started in Boston by a syn- 
dicate of Boston creditors and its pur- 
pose is to take the property and run 
it, paying creditors who will sign off 
all claims, 62J cents on the dollar. 

The above which is in substance an 
associate press dispatch from Provi 
donee leaves our local mills in the 
Same state of -.uncertainty as they 
have been for the past two months. 
It was expected that if the sate of 
the mills at Providence oocurred 
some disposition of the property here 
would be made. We still believe 
that the time is not far distant when 
the valuable property here will be 
utilized but we shall have to bide the 
time of the powers that be.

The Rome, Watertown & Ogdens 
h'g It. It. is making great preparations 
to handle the patrons of the Fourth 
Annual Popular Excursion to Wash- 
ington, which will be run March 4th. 
Former excursions from the line of 
tho R. W. & O. R. R. have carried 
more than sixteen hundred people' to 
Washington and it is expected that, 
large number will avail themselves 
of the splendid opportunity this year. 
The Pennsylvania R. R. requires all 
through to be equipped with safety 
couplers and air signal whistle pipes: 
this device does away with the old 
time bell cord and in case anything 
happens to the train, the air signal 
pipe blows the locomotive whistle, 
warning the engineer that something 
is wrong. To comply with this rt- 
quirement the Wagner Palace Car 
Company have equipped about twen- 
ty of their sleeping cars with the air 
signal whistle pipe and have also e- 
quipped the cars with the Janney 
Hood so they can be run through to 
Washington without change. Infor- 
mation relative to the excursion can 
be obtained from all R.W. & 0. R. R. 
tickets agents. The rate from any 
station at which tickets are sold will 
be ten dollars for the round trip. s

Split Gvl<) Coiwt, 

"Two tons for twenty, please," said n 
gentleman to tho caahier in tho county 
treasurer's office. 

Tho cashier tuok tho "twenty" and 
rang it on the counter, it had that pe- 
culiar dull ring that characterizes coun- 
terfeit coin a Ho rung it a second time 
mid then inspected it critically. 

"Ia that bogus?" asked tho owner of 
tho coin. 

"Oh, no," answered tho cashier; it's 
good as wheat, but split." 

Continuing, ho said: "That is the first 
split twenty i ever ran across. The 
etamping machine at the mint some- 
times comes down too hard on tha coins 
and eplita them: but it ia seldom tlio 
larger coins split. It's mostly 'fives* that 
suffer. But they are very careful at tho 
mint and stop erery split coin they de- 
tect. Now, in the thousands of dollars 
handled hero every year I rarely find a 
split coin. I don't think I've found more 
thnti four or live in a year, and, as I say 
tlio coins were mostly $'i pieces," 

Tho split $30 piece looked perfect, und, 
go far as the eye could detect, bore no 
Jlaw of any kind. The only fault with 
it was ia the "riug," and the split made 
it sound "dead" when, thrown on the 
counter.— Sun Francisco Examiner,

stated that after being married in tho 
east for two years, his wii> had shown 
unmistakable yigtw of consumption, and 
the doctors had advised him to lake her 
to California, and, if possible I o go across 
the plains by wagon, as he would find 
thai journeying that way she would gain 
strength. They found a party of emi- 
grants at a small town in Nebraska, who 
were go-nig to the coast, and engaged 
their passage. For tho first week out 
Alice gained strength, but ono evening 
she caught cold and this malady in- 
creased with awful rapidity. When 
Laramie City was reached sho could go 
no farther ami the trip had to be aban- 
doned. At that town they were ad- 
vised to go into the mountains, aa the 
fresh air ladened with the perfume of 
pine was beueiieial to consumptives. A 
wagon was procured that took them to 
North Park, and by easy stages on horse- 
back they had reached my cabin. It 
was by the merest chance that thev 
found it, and 1 was glad they did. 
"A month passed, the happiest in my 
life, but 1 saw that gradually Alice was 
sinking, and that she would never leave 
the gulch. Her husband noticed the 
change and was nnconsolable. Ho ad- 
ministered toiler every want, which were 
not many, imd realized what an awful 
change it would be when she was taken 
from hhu. One night the' end came. Sho 
called me into the little room that I had 
partitioned off for their use, and in a 
feeble voice thanked me for all my kind- 
siess to her, and hoped that when my lima 
came to cross the mysterious river that 
elie would meet me in chat land where 
Gorrow ia unknown. She told Alfred it 
was hard to leave him. but that he must 
be strong and bear the affliction - that a 
wise master had in his just wisdom sent 
him to carry, and that all things wore 
done for ihe best.- It was a scene the- like 
of which I wish never to witness again, 
the feeble girl, full of hope for the future, 
bidding good-by to tho man she loved, 
and the strong, powerful man, bowed 
down with grief at the thought of losing 
her who was the only tie which bound 
hiru to tills world. t The end came: with 
her head pillowed on the breast of her 
protector, her spirit winged its flight to 
eternal rest. "Uaderatwh one of the pine 
trees we laid her, and carved, her mimo 
and the date of her death on its trunk. 

"Alfred was broken, hearted, and wan- 
dared about tho hills iikeone lost. Ho 
had no purpose m*Ufe, so 1 used to ask

the lecturer. "It is 10 or 11 o'clock be- 
fore anybody is astir, imlesa ifc is the 
children or teachers, who must bo in 
school at 0, and if ono is to calf on an 
official ho should wait till nniddny." 

The day of tho high born Russian was 
described at uoiae length. Everybody 
drive;* in the afternoon, and brilliant 
iijuipages with only two occupants are 
Seen everywhere. At 4 o'clock driving 
is at an end. for it is dart by that time 
in the winter season, and receptions aro 
in order. Dinner is at 0, which, to the 
foreign mind, appears to bo n series of 
siiiiiding lunch, sitting meal, smoking 
Koiree— lor women smoke cigarettes as 
well as I he men— and card party. Every- 
body plays whist, and for money. The 
ifakes are small usually, though at tho 
clubs fori ones are won and lost in a night. 
Tho lecturer described the Russian the- 
I aire as tho finest in the world and tho 
most fashionable. Wraps are- left in the 
hall. Tho performance is always pre- 
ceded by tho national air, and pasaion- 
aie plays and music are popular. The 
ballet, is excelled only in Paris. After 
the play follow a long drive to a restau- 
rant,, a leisurely supper to tho most rav- 
ishing inuaic, and the day draws to a 
close. Then were described the balls at

Authors a PrcofreatlBr Had Met. 

Sonic one, a man apparently, who 
sign3 himself "B. F. P.," is writing a 
series of papers on "Authors I Have 
Met'' for The Boston Transcript. How 
do you suppose ho has met his author^ 
At the club or in the dining room?' .Not 
at all. In a much more practical way— 
as a proofreader and compositor; and he 
discusses them from a manuscript point 
of view. The most of his meeting-was 
done m Boston, and ho teils us how 
amiable were such men aa Robert C. 
Whithrop, Josiah Quincy, Joseph Story 
and other equally distfuguished ■; Boston-

While sitting ia '« ameli ofttoe in the 
old tort knelling hmm+ St Paul, «in«., 
in the y«w J8M, my attenOon was nr- 
rwt#d by the fmnoaufg jw ni m i ii of a 
Urge Indian chief, who; with hie blank* 
about him; skode into the room with 
Iho dignity of a Hotaao senator. He was 
a large man, with high cheek bones, ft 
well poised head, brilliant hlaek eyes 
and hear, and with a pleasant •mile he 
exclaimed while pwwing: "Booshu ne- 
cheo"— how to do, friend?— «nd took a 
seat near me. There was a massive 
characteristic about the man which did 
not belong to tho ordinary .Indian, and 
yet ho had ali the Indian peculiarities. 
Dinner wan soon announced, and he 
tooi a seat wear mo at the table. He ate 
with ordinary dojiheration and stowed 
away nr> ordinary amount of food, but 
while (;o engaged one of tbtt windows 
was suddenly darkened, and on looking 
up I beheld many grimy faces and burn- 
ing eyes, with war paint and feathers, 
tho possessors of which belonged to the 
Sioux nation, and which nation hadbeen 
for _ years and was tlten at war with the 
Chippowas. Gleaming knives and par- 
tially covered tomahawks made ray po- 
rtion by tho side of the Chlppow* chief 
rather uncomfortable, so 1 moved; but 
he continued to eat, and then the door 
opened and eomo ten or twelve 8ioax 
warriors filed along in front of the foe 
of thtir people, with clinched riflca and 
heartsglowing with rovengo. Stilt calm, 
with not a muscto of his mobile face de- 
noting fear, the chief finished bisdiimer, 
coolly arose, drow his blanket about him, 
and with a lordly tread, a compressed 
lip and a flashing eye, walked down in 
front of these hostile Sioux, and lighting 
his pipy, deliberately puffed tho emoko 
into the very faces of Ids inveterate foes. 
That man was Hole-in-the-Day, the chief 
of tho Chippewa nation, and the Sioux 
warriors were on his warpath, but they 
feared the white man's troops at Forfc 
SneUing would dart down npon them the 
moment a blow had been given, go they 
restrained their wrath and let the great 
chief depart unmolested. 

Hole-in-the-Day was an Indiaa of re- 
markable sagacity and intelligence. 

associated with the whites and compre- 
hended their ideas of civilisation. He 
wan very wily and ?ery brave, cad 
greatly feared by bio enemies. St is 
said of him that he would float down tha 
Mississippi river in his canoe to St. Paul, 
paddle across the stream to' the opposite 
shore, secrets hia boat, lay in wait for 
the Sioux, who were in tho habit o£ fol- 
lowing the trail to Mendota, then pounes. 
down upon them, kill ono or two, gsoupo 
their scalps and ni_ie his way back to 
the eaat shore and thence home. Eg 
viaited Washington several times, and 
became very well versed in the ways of 
tricksters and politicians. Once, white 
on a viattothe capital, ho fell in lo?© 
with a whitm waiter girl in the National 
hotel, proposed to- her, was accepted, and 
they were married. He came w«at s i*. 
paired hia home near Fori Bipleyv la> 
stalled Ida wife in his tepeoos the wails 
Indian queen, and soon after he was as- 
sassinated while riding home with his 
little son, probably growing out of tha 
insane jealousy of his squawe. 
This white widow -of Hole-in-the-Day 
lives at present, or did live, in Minneap- 
olis, where hereon held apositiou in the 
postoffice, but I believe he is now Ira 
some official position on the White t Earth 
reservation. Ignatius! Hole-in-the-Day, 
the eldest brother, and heir apparent to 
the chieftainship, was drowned 'in the 
Illinois river in Chicago about one ; year 
ago. Of course he was full blood,- His 
brother, or rather his half-brother, tho 
son of the white wife, is a Btte, genteel, 
well educated young man, and quite at- 
tractive ia his apfieajahce, ' The head 
men of the tribe have been anxious to 
have him take the phice of "fab father, 
but in an interview with me he said, 
while ho would like to do something for 
hie people, he could not go from *iv|la&- 
tion back into the habits of the Indians, 
as he would be obliged to do to hold any 
power over them, '■■'■■'* 

The chief,; Hole-in-the-Day, had a mag- 
nificent physical organfaaaon. He was 
very straight, quit© dignified, and yet 
very affable, and withal he was very 
generally liked by thewhje&v Daring 
the Sioux outbreak in Minnesota in 1863 
be had overturn* from Little Crow, the 
great, Sioux chief, to join with him ia 
maseacreing the whites, hot he declined 
tho honor, 'although soma of his people 
were anxious to halve him do so. St. 
Paul, ia early times; without Hole-in- 
die-Day, would- ho like the play of 
^Batalet" with Hanilet left out. 

On ttie bank of the upper Misaiasippi, 
about Little Falls, in Hinuesoia, lies the 
body of the once great Chipjpewa chief 
$nd that of hif "fafhrr...'Bn*i in therDay, 
anifther noted chief before him, both 
bodies facing south, so *b«y can watch
