Very llaely. If we exclude the numer

which they were appointed, ami the
many htimlruls of fashionable, who
have Washington as their winter resi

Iw said to be in the ma

desirable voter here ? If the Republican
party is so wed led to the scheme of
making lilra dominate the polls lo the

VTe suggest to the perspiring patriots
who assemble at Carson's Hotel, on the
A venue, ami load the air with eloquence
anil other things these summer nights,
that they seize this opportunity to sub
rait their claims. Unices the Ilepub

rising them as stalking horses in pro
Jeets of their own, holding them m
senseless tools ami chattels and caring
nothing for their Interests, they will
hasten to recognize n demand to mo lest

THE "KHEUTZEK SONATA."
Xstmelly, the order firbhldlrjr the
-( ( f the mails for ttie transo iMlon of
Tolsut's last work, the "KreutMr
Ik Lata." has had the tttect of stimu
lating iptciilatltia, not only m to the
character of the book Itself, but the
clicuMstances under which the baa
w a Is Id.
As regards the book, the bulk of la
tilltfint comment seeras to he to the
tfftcl that It is not wicked or Immoral,
though it treats of Immorality. Per
haps as fair a criticism as can be found
Is that made by Truth, the well-known
literary periodical, of New York.
"I fancy that this is the most daring.
mi well as impressive, book of modurn
times. It Is outspoken as a thunder
clap, but as Innocent as a breath of
sitting. There Is no evil In this book,
though t treats of evil. It is an ori
ginal view of the question, 'Is marriage
failure,' and the reader must jtulge
whether It is a true one or not. It Is a
pleasure ta call attention to the trans
fallen of the 'Kreutzer Sonata.' Tola
itartling and Impressive work is now
for the nrst time presented to the
American reader In clean, concise and
emphatic English, such as can be
plainly understood, and yet is free from
the coarse brutality that a more literal
translation, such as those usually put
forth of the works of foreigners. Is apt
to pitmt. The Idioms of the original,
slthanfb net repulsive In the Russian
tocgne, are so semi Oriental aad almost
baibaric In their strength that, when
jjIvbb in their native crudity, they not
cnly fail to express the author's true
meaning, but also Impart a taint of vul
garity to the book that is very far is
tit ed from the earnest but decent Intea
I Jobs of Count Tolstoi. In Russian the
bcok Is simply strong and UDCompro
raiting, in a literal translation it is, or
teems to be coarse and almost brutal.
Th piesent version is absolutely true
to the author's thought, aad the trans
lator cannot reeeive too much praise for
iU est canton of a moat dittJcult task."
This hi practically the verdict el pro
feestenti etttics everywhere. Tfcee-pU-Ub

The republicans who live in th
grmib reallrt that the Force Mil H
aimed at the rcjce, trafiipifllty M
ptnsperlty of the South, and thtt It Is
the scheme of partlsana. .lonathan
JtnteHm, who was a few years afro the
Hepubllcan candidate fot Onvemor, Is
asralnst the Force Mil. He says
"I am opposed to the measure, Wt
tetly opposed to It, if It should pw It
will be a dead letter law, for It would
never be enforced In the South. If the
white people of the South want to keep
the irroes from voting a thotmtid
such bills would not prevent them from
carrrlatr out their d"slo. I do not
thin in the end that there h very much
to b feared from the peseafe of the
E. A. Angler. Assistant United 3'ates
Attorney, the possible Republican oan
dhlale tor Conres In this district, sM
"The Mil Is not mandatory, but dls
cr tlonary. ami only becomes opervlve
when Invoked by the petition of 100
voicrs. If I should Ire the Uepublban
nominee, I have cnounh confidence In
my nelghltors to believe they would
give me a free ballot and a fair count,
and I should withdraw from the race If
the 100 petitioners called for the Inter
vention of the Federal courts."
The Hon. S. A. Darnell, United
Plates Attorney, has spoke against the
bill, and General James Longstreet Is
against It. Colonel Darnell, in his
speech here Wednesday, sild:
"I do not think tbe bill Is fair for any
State In the Union. I do not like tlut
feature where 100 citizens petition the
court that the law may be applied in
that district. 31y experience has been
and Is that, when men are forced to do
nnytlilnp, they will be like n cork In
water do what you will to keep It un

don't think such a thing as the Force
bill is needed In the South."

Itussell Harrison is very keen about
bis hair. There Is not a great deal of
it for him to cxerclsu bis mind about,
but what there is hns an unwonted and
powerful fascination for the President's
son. When he was In New York ho
spent n good deal of time in the barber
shop nt the Gllsoy House and nt other
well-known hotels, and as he Is n be
liever in manipulation and rubbing ha
manages to ctvc the barbers a good doal
of work. Very often he has his hair
brushed continually for twenty or
thirty minutes at n time and It Is his
custom to have It trimmed at least once
a week. Naturally what there Is of It
Is kept pretty short. The whole of the
ciown of his head is visible to the nikaJ
In manner and appearance Sir. Il.ir
tlion is the counterpart of any one of
o 3r three dozen brisk and energetic
voung business men, drummers and
tradesmen who hover about tbe Intel
conldois. The greater part of his life
has been passu In attending to buslnest
details, and his father's elevation to the
Presidency hns not In the slightest de
cree charged him. so his ftlends s ly.
Tbe truth about his visit to London,
his appearance as n guest of Queen
Victoria's and bis other rather remark
able experiences over there confirm the
ecneial isllmatc of the man. Ho acted

places precisely as any other unemo
tional, uiumasdnailve, stolid, everyday
and commonplace young business mtn
would have acted In the same circum
stances. ilr. Harrison does not tell good
stories or bad ones, bis clothes are not
particularly well or 111 titling, and he Is
tbe personification In every way of a
common place cvery-day young mm
Tbe Information herein act forth is tbe
result of over twelve years' observation
of tbe man by one of bis business asso
ciates. "They may write a thousand
columns about Itussell Harrison," said
the 11'orW's Informant, "but they will
never succeed in making blin anything
more or less than tbe commonplace son
of an every day father. If he has not
glaring virtues it is but fair to say that
he has no pronounced defects. He goes
his way in peace, he makes a fair living
and he does not care a rap what la
thouebt of him."

"Jim tbe Penman" is the latest title

fraud and falsehood implied in tbe

RATES ON FOOD PRODfflJTS.
The lntertate I'enmeriSi OOWmriialon
Issnes Its Orrtera TiMJsj-.
The Interstate Commwe OMNnfMrlrni
hM hsued its order for tke mlrrctkm of
rate on food products, batetl ori In re
pott sent to the Senate Jnt T. 18W.
The OTder Is acrompanred by a copy
of lhat report slo the opinion of the
Commission, overruling the protest and
mot tons of the roads to dismiss for want
of jnrlwlictlon. Th's opinlow reviews
the powers and duties of the Com
mission In the matter of beginning ami
conducting Investigations, and theOom
mission holds Its proceedings leejally
sufficient ami the reductions necessary
to make the rates reasonable.
The reductions made apply only to
corn, oats, wheat ami flour carried from
Iowa, Missouri, Kansas ami Nebraska
In rl.loBn St TikU and the Mttt.
s:ppl Hlver. The reiucetl rates are I
from the jiissxmri ittver to unicago on
corn and oats 17 cents, ami wheat and
flour 80 cents per 100 pounds. From
Kansas and Nebraska points, corn, IS
to 88; wbtat, 31 to 27 cents. Reduc
tions extend 800 miles In Nebraska and
830 miles In Kansas from the MIourl
River. Where rates are fractional, tbc
roads may charge even cents, which
considerably modifies the reductions.
No reductions are required which will
leave the roads less than fit mills per
ton per mile for hauls not looser than
500 miles, nor less than G mills for any
As to rates oast of the Mississippi the
"The rates from Chicago and from
SI. Louis and the Mississippi River now
charged on corn, outs, wheat nnd flour
to the eastern seaboard are not found
to bo excessive; the charges on other
ptlnclpol food products between the
Mississippi and tho seaboard arc In
volved In pending complaints heard on
petition and answor, and therefore no
orders ns to these rates nnd charges will
be now Issued."

Worth a Thought.
It is safe to assert that
there isn't a day passes but
hundreds of dollars, to say
the least, are expended in
this city for furniture and
house decorations. If not
expended judiciously, then
poorly spent, and if not
disbursed in the light of all
possible economy then not
expended judiciously. The
papets contain daily coun
sel of the best prudence,
and this house is among the
rest in "saving suggestions."
But it takes much and fre
quent argument to influence
some minds and often the
most forcible kind of logic.
Yet sometimes a gentle hint
will kindle productive re
flection, and that is the hint
we here aim to impart.
Worth a thought ? Yes,
it is worth a long, large
thought that whether you
are buying strictly season
able goods, such as Baby
Water Coolers, Bed Cano
pies, Lace Curtains, Gauze
Hangings, &c, or whether
you would be induced to
invest in Furniture, Car
pets, Rugs, Tapestries, Por
tieres and so forth and so
on, provided there were
ample considerations of
prices. We wish to stamp
indelibly upon your mind
the fact that as ample as is
our spacious store we are
are equally ready to extend
to the wise and lar-seeing
investcr of cash considera
tions of price just as ample
All this means that we
are selling goods very cheap.
Isn't this worth a thought ?
