ECHOES OF THE SPANISH WAR
Part 3 states the origin of the war
with Spain and recalls the stubborn residence
made by President McKiniey
against intervention in Cuba, even after
the Maine had been destroyed and
the causes thereof made plain. The
administration of the war department
during the war with Spiin is dramatic
ally set forth. '"The disgraceful pros
titutioo of the commissary department
to the interests of the dealers in canned
beef" is produced in a condensed
form from the testimony of the commission
appointed by the President, a
tribunal which was popularly under- |
stood to have been organized to acquit. I
The testimony of General Mi)e? and of
numerous officers is presented to convict

meat packers to outweigh the health
and comfort of the brave soldiers who
volunteered to fight ihe country's battles.
Commissary General Eigan's foulmouthed
abuse of General Miles, for
which he was court-martialed and sen- i
tesoed to dismissal from the army, is j
also given. This is followed by Presi- j

viotion and reversal of the sentence.

usurpation by him both of the treatymaking
power and the war makiog
power. It shows from the record that,
although Spanish sovereignity in the
Philippines did not pass to the United
States until April 11, 1899, the president
from December to April road roughshod
over the constitution to force a
war upon the Filipinos in order to forestall
congresss in the exercise of its
power botix under tne treaty acd. tbe

political status of the Filipinos. The

by a chapter giving numerous
decisions of the supreme oourt which
dearly contradict the new Republican
doctrine that the constitution is not the

chapter on the cost of imperialism will
attract general attention.
ANGLO AMERICAN ALLIANCE.
The British alliance is shovn to exist,
and some of its work is recited?
notably the surrender to Great Britain
of our proper rights in the construction
of a canal throuzh Nicaragua: the sur
render to Great Britain of valuable
mining territory in Alaska under the
buise of atemporary arrangement; the

The stealings by United States Republican
officials in Cuba occupy an
entire chapter. It deals with facts
from the records. The nullification of
the constitution by the Puerto Rico
act is shown to be "imperialism applied."
Extracts from the proceedings
of ?on creation al committees exnose the
visible control of congress by the sugar
trust. Extracts from the proceedings
of these committees show the presence

fsct that the United States has been
compelled to pay ft>06 a ton for plate

by the railroad companies
in favor of tbe trusts, which gives j
them absolute control of the prices os I
all the products dealt in b> them.
The ship subridy bill for the shipf
buildiag trust is reviewed.
THE JiOXEY QUESTION
Part 6 is devoted to the money question.
The first chapter is a record of i
McKinley's broken pk dge for international
bime'slism and demonstrates
by the speech of Ssnator Wolcott and
by McKinley's message io favcr of the
Indianapolis gold standard plan, that
an international agreement for bimetallism
was only prevented by a treach
erous blow by McKinley himeelf when
it was on the eve of consummation.
Senator WoJcofc quotes from - the
t-peeches of members of the Bri ish
ministry, and these quotations demonstrate
this fact. The interestine statement
is made that during McKinley's
administration Secretary Gage has
coined 53,000,000 of "Sfty-oentclipprd
dollars," all of which are preserved by
the gold standard act as a legal tender.
Mr. Gage has just expressed great
fear that if Mr. Bnan is elected he
would cause these 53 000,000 of dollars
to be paid out of the treasury as money.
An aaa'.ysi* of the gold standard, na
tional-b^nk, anti-greenback financial
bill is gi?en, mainly from the speech
of Senator Teller, together *ith Senaator
Chandler's protest against the
same. The relations of the Standard
Oil tationsl city bauk o? New York
with the ?r<>asury department and its
purchase of the old New York city customhouse
are fully set forth. It is
showc that this healthy institution is
an annex of the treasury department.

great parties, respectively, form the
subject of important chapters. The

A dispatch from Charleston says the
unprecedented heat wave has played
deadly havoc with the poor Negroes
living on the sea islands along the coast.
It appears that the Negroes have been
dying from fever, which is primarily
caused frcm the heat and allowed to
thrive because the eickcannotgetmedi
cal attention required in such cases.
This summer there has been more
fever on the sea islands than for some
years past, and this disease has been
sent tlriving ob by the hot and dry
weather. People who have been around
sick rooms with fever patients oan*bes>t
imagine the condition of the poor Ne
grces in the hovels who have to depend
on voodooism for relief and who have
to stay m a serious way witcout proper
attention and without ice. The island
Negroes have felt the bitterness of it
all, and they tioiply lie down and die
when the fever strikes them. In some
of the bats it has been iold here that a
whole family would be ill at a time, and
that their only aaention would come
from the neighbors who were inclined
to lerd assistance. The physicians in
these island nc-ighborhoods have done
their best to give relief to the Negroes,
and pretty much all of this has been
charity. Even with charity physicians,
howevtr, the sufferers have not been
cared for as their conditions might de
mana, and with weiid shouting and
chantineabnut them have laid dowa to
die, with nothing but a voodoo doctor
to drive off the ills. The class of Negroes

brought on by the heat are the ones
who suffered most a few years ago by

a noiiMtp and Refrettblnc Prenara
tion That Is Easily
Women of to-day are not as liable to
faint as their grandmothers were, because
they dress more sensibly and do
not wear as tight dresses or as tightshoes
and gloves, but it is a wise and
sensible precaution to keep fragrant
salts on hand, says the Xew York Tribune.
Any salt loses its strength in a
short time. The simple lavender salts
are the most desirable of all perfumed
salts. These are easily prepared at
home. While you are preparing a portion
of these salts it is as easy to make
several bottles or vinaigrettes as one.
and the cost is small. Procure half a
dozen small, clear glass Domes, wun
close-cut glass stoppers if you wish.
A pretty stopper costs very little, purchased
with the bottles by the half
dozen, aud adds considerable to the
value of the vinaigrette as a gift. It is
desirable that a vinaigrette be small,
so it may be easily carried in the pocket.
Vinaigrettes are often very elaborate,
decorated with silver, gold and even
precious stones* but a tiny bottle of
clear glass with a pretty stopper is always
in good taste and as useful as a
more ornate one. To prepare the salt,
procure from a trustworthy druggist
half a pound of carbonate of ammonia
and an ounce and a half of the best oil
of lavender. Crush the two together
in a mortar, or in any dish that will
mix them. Set the mixture in a large
bowl, which should be put in a pan of
warm water, covered and set in a moderate
oven for about an hour. Stir the
mixture several times while it is heating1.
It is not necessary for the ammonia
to be crushed fine. If it is in broken
lumps it lasts longer. Do not get in
the foolish habit of using a vinaigrette
continually. Cases of obstinate deafness
have been ascribed to this cause.
The salts are also said to have an injurious
effect on the vocal chords as well
as on the auditory nerves when used
continually. Even the odor of flowers,
notably the odor of violets, has been
known to cause a singer temporarily
to lose her voice.

ETIQUETTE OF THE DANCE.
A Few Thingi That Should Be Known
by Every Devotee of Terpsichore.
The etiquette of the ballroom or the
private dancing party ought to be familiar
to all who attend such diversions,
but, if so, its observance is far
from universal. A few general rules
should always be borne in mind, says
the Chicago Chronicle.
When a man is presented to a young
woman at a dance he usually says almost
at once: "May I have the pleasure
of this dance?" After dancing and
walking about the rooms two or three
times the young man may take the girl
back to her chaperon and plead another
engagement, or, better, she suggests
that he take her to a place near her
mother or chaperon. The lady is the
one to first Intimate her desire to stop
If a man holds a girl too tightly she
should drop her hand from his shoulder
so as to bring it between her partner
and herself. If he does not take
the hint let her stop dancing at once
under some pretext so evident that he
may realize her displeasure or disapproval.
A chaperon should not be lacking- In
personal dignity; nor should she dance
while her charge is unprovided with a .
partner. A girl should be attentive to
her mother or her chaperon, presenting
her friends to her and occasionally
stopping- to say a few words.
Both young men and maidens should
be careful to remember that their dancing
engagements must be kept. A girl
must not refuse to dance with one man
under some pretext and then dance
with another; neither should she dance
with the same.man more than two or
A young man Invited to a house
should dance as early as possible with
the daughter of his hostess and pay
them every possible attention.

SOME LITERARY HERMITS.
L Number of "Well-KnovFn American

sands. One of the most striking' instances
of a literary celebrity living
the life of a recluse is furnished by
Mrs. Maxwell, born Miss M. E. Braddon,
who absolutely shuns personal
publicity. There is probably no living
novo-l-'st whose personality is so
closely concealed from the public as
Miss Eraddon. Very few people have
an idea of what the talented novelist
looks like, for the simple reason (
that she has never allowed, her photograph
to be reproduced, says the Chicago

chronicled in the newspapers,

and her name only appears occasionally,

Count Leo Tolstoi, the famous Tins
sian novelist-, i9 a remarkable example
of a present- day genius living the
life of a hermit. The man resolutely
refuses, for the sake of his principles,
to occupy that social position to
which his works have entitled him.
Instead of enjoying the delights of society
in St. Petersburg, he is content
to live in seclusion among the peasants
of Russia, working hard at manual
labor, as well as mental. He
cares nothing for riches or rank, although
the Tolstoi family is a wealthy
and powerful one. No monk could
be more severe and rigorous in his
mode of living. Count Tolstoi prepares
his own meals, chops the wood
for his fire, digs bis own potatoes and
even makes his own boots.
It is very seldom, indeed, that one
hears news concerning Jules Verne,
whoce novels have delightled millions
of boys and grown-up people, too, for
the matter of that. The French novelist
has always been characterized 'as
being a most reserved man, disliking
self-advertisement In any shape or
form. He has never sought public
recognition from the hands of his
countrymen, and although French society
would, so to speak, receive him
with open arms, he prefers to live in
seclusion with his devoted wife in a
little house on the outskirts of
Amiens. Jules Verne gave up traveling
ten or twelve years ago, andi with
the exception of occasionally visiting
Paris to see his 6on rarely goes bevond

In a quaint part of London resides
Dr. Samuel Smil-es, now in his eightyfifth
year, whose books have been
read and digested #by millions. His
name has been so long familiar to
everybody that it will probably surprise
many people to know that he is
still working. In his earlier days he
was known as a great traveler, but
for the last 20 years his life has been
spent at home with his work. He is
extremely devoted* to his wife, making
his "club" his home, and enjoying
his declining y?ars in a very quiet and
unostentatious manner. Dr. Smiles is
rather averse to being interviewed,
and- it is mainly owing to this fact
that one so seldom hears any news
regarding the author of "Self Help."

Hauling Down Old GloryThe
Augusta Chronicle took I
occasion a few days ago when
the news came that the American
flag was flying over the impenal
granary in Peking, to inquire
what the Republican administration
was soiDg to do |
about it?whether the Chinese I
capital should ever remain an
American outpost, or if the administration
would dare to
"pull down the flag."
Mr. Bryan took occasion in
his speech to puncture the same
point, and did it in such admirable
style as to extort praise
even from his vigorous opponent,
the New York Evening:
Post, one of the ablest indepen- ,
dent newspapers in America. '
The Post says: He took hold of
one of the most cherished of the
Rftmihlioan srarec.rows?the aw
fui sacrilege of hauling down
"Old Glory*'?and showed up (
its composition very happily.
He pointed out that the administration
is now engaged in haul- 'I
ing down the flag in Alaska, for
the very good reason that it was
flying over territory that did not
belong to us. He asked whether
the fact that the flag had been
raised over Peking compelled
us to maintain an army permanently
there to keep it from
being hauled down. And he inquired
narticularlv as to the
matter of hauling down the flag
in Cuba. Is President McKin- j
ley going to haul-down our flag
when the Cubans s*t up a government,
or not? If he is not
going to haul it down, what is
the meaning of our talk of Cuban
freedom and independence? 1
If he is going to haul it down,
what does he mean by talking
as if the act was sacrilege? On
this subject Mr. Bryan has i
scored a distinct advantage. He
has offered the Republican
orators a dilemma, from which
they can escape only after the
manner of the cuttlefish. They
have formed the habit uttering
a large quantity of cant and
bombast and platitude, and passing
it off on patient audiences,
with the idea that it would be
received as profound wisdom.
Now they have to deal with an
orator who is not afraid to expose
their sham patriotism, and who
makes their most exalted and
impressive appeals ridiculous.
Test Vote Favors Bryan.
According to a test vote taken
by the New York Journal recently,
William J. Bryan will
sweept Greater New York in
November by at least 89,936
plurality. Out of the total vote
taken, 4,358, only 82 who had
no vote in 1896 will vote for
McKinlev this year, whereas \
295 indicate their intention, on
signed blanks, to vote for William
Jennings Brvan. Two
thousand, five" hundred and fif:
ty-six votes were recorded for
Bryan, 1802 for. McKinley, and
18 scattering. At this ratio, if
the total vote in Greater New
York this year is as large as in
1896, when it reached 519,296,
the proportion of the two -candidates
in November should be:
For Bryan 304,616
For McKinley 214 68^
The Journal's advance poll of
the mayoralty contest two years
ago proved a wonderiuiiy accurate
test of the real vote. It
was a forecast the fairness and
completeness of which were
proven fully by the official returns.
This straw vote was
taken with the same degree of
conscientiousness, and the figures
may be accepted as prophetic
of the actual returns in
November next. "
Dr. Henry Wade Rogers, expresident
of Northwestern University,
in Illinois, and recently
tn ?s rvrrkfcicariTfiliirv at. Va.Ia
says he will vote for Bryan
and Stevenson. In 1896 he
voted for McKinley and Hobart.
He regards silver as a dead issue,
and imperialism as "the
most dangerous possibly policy
for the republic to adopt,"
