lishes the following from iti London
correspondent: There are other things
besidoa lils mental and moral qualities
for which Fiwliahmen will point out
their grand old man aa an example to
their children. "The People's Wil
liam is not only a might? statesman, a
powerful orator, an authority on the

and a model husband and faithful,

his name is aseoc'ated. Meat poli
ticians, even in the nrimo of lite,
would be utterly unfit for such a phys
ical strain, or, if they lived through it,
would be prostrated after it for weeks,
Mr. Gladstone, a day or two after a
Midlothian campaign ia over, is to be
seen in his shirt sleeves, perspiring
like a Maine lumberman, laying a
beavy as to one of tbe big beeches in
the wood at Iltwarden. The first
Bnnday after, be it rain or shine, he
tramps afoot from the Castle ti the
11 awarden Church, of which his son-in-law
is rector, and reads out the les
son in a sonorous volco. He is
now 77 years of age, and, with
a bounding split, be goes Into
the most difficult electioneering cam
paign hs has ever undertaken. Think
of it 77 years of age. Will tbe reader
recall some man of that age of his ac
quaintance, if be have such a patri
arch among his friends some lean
and slippered pantaloon, borderiog on,
if not already in his dotage, and strive
and imagine him bearing the constant
labor, tho unchristian hours, the fierce
mental strife of one of the greatest
legislative assemblies in the world, a
life in which young, strong men grow
old and wiste away before their time.
Imagine this old grandfather not only
an active participator in these scenes
but the central and dominant llguro
around whom everything revolves,
tbe Jove like master of moo, enthrall
ing the Legislature by his eloquence,
waying the deetinlea of a great Em

the first responsibility for its govern

APPEALING TO THE COUNTRY TO VINDI
In a spirit which is nothing short of
the spirit of social revolutit-n. Ima
gine this at an age when nnst old
men are doddering helplessly by the
flresido. You will meet Mr. Gladstone
nt a dinner tublo after delivering a
great speech in the llouss of Com
mons, and will look at him in Vain for
any signs of exhaustion, physical or
mental, any of those attitudes of
weary abinrplion which great think
ers or great public men ate to apt to
full into in soil -ty, whether uncons
ciously or idoliherstcly, ud at which
their admirers naze with bated breath.
Mr.Gladatone in society is just as much
a center of attraction and u spectacle of
exuberant encgy and brilliancy as in
the Honse of Commons. He talks In
cessantly, and, let us hss!en to add,
talks duiiuhtfully, never mentioning
"hhor." His eyes sparkle, his whole
face lightB up with animation and he
laughs the loud, joyous latum of a
choolboy. His conversation flits with
the lightest of wings over a whole
world of subjects. One evening re
cently at a dinner a curious friend of
mine made note that in tho course o

ing memoirs to attinutive in the
French, and that, again to a correction,
with personal ti-etmiony. of eome of
Greville's mistakes. A bubbling, ef
fervescing stream, coming from the
springs of tbe heart as fresh as in the
springtime of young manhood. Some
body bas compared Mr. Gladstone's
heart and intellect to a winter pear,
w hich blooms and ripens nnder the
snows of see. He is fond of the so
ciety of pretty women, and in swoet
girl graduates of the drawing room he
takes an interest which, while just aa
wire and safe as if it were, is anvthinu
but g-andfa'berly. It is thsinteriHt
of a man whose taste bas grown no
staler than bis heart, who loves the
8 gbt oi yomn ana beauty, and who
enjoys that most fascinating of all the
pleasures of civilized life, tbe convene
of refined, brilliant, high bred and
beautiful women of the world. The
women like him in return, and he is
often to be eeen leaning against a
Eniar or a mantel with a half dozen
dies Clara Vere de Vere around
bim, whom younger men have been
striving to attract in vain. This pro
clivity oi Mr. uiadstone's, which no
bamme d'aprit was ever without, and
which In France if he did not poetess
be would be rated boor and a clod,
baa given tbe toigue of scandal,
which in London society is tbe foulest
in the world, a pretext to work upon.
In London society, too, speaking of it
generally, Mr. Gladstone bas always
been hated aa much as he is feared,
and in tbe clubs and drawing rooms
tbey have been always eager to
amirch tbe name of tbe punst lived
and noblest minded state mm that
has risen in English politics since
Pym or Hampden. "He unites," they
say and this ia quite a popular epi
gram that baa been Riiiw tbe rounds
of Belgravia and Mayfair recently
"he unites tbe foibles of David to tbe
fulling of Ananits." Never was there
a falser or baser slander. Thev talk,
too, of tbe ioalouy of Mr. Gladstone.
I do not think history or fiction fur
nishes a more perfect instance of con
jtigsl felicity than we have in the case
of Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone. They
have seemed to work sll through their
long married life as one being, not aa
two. With all

that we only read of in fairy teles

ment ber husband obtains from the
fountain of unsullied ytmth. Tho
uoiien that she is jealous is not only
scandalous, but piepos'erous. John
Pym, by the wy, tne Hero oi tne
Lonir Parliament, was in his day the
BtihjHct of the same kind of s'anders,
and from tho suns kind of causes, as
the present Prime Minutar of Eng
land, an4 Pym is, in my judgment,
the one statesman in hittsry who
bears a strong resemblance t) Mr.
Gladstone. Indeed, I think when
they are placed side by side, as cham
pions of populaa rights, as leaden of
the people, as masters of Parliament,
and as democrats who were at the
same t ins accomplished scholars and
polished men of the world, and when
tho respective periods in English
politics in which their work wis ac
complished are compared the parallel
bqtween the two men becomes posi
tively striking. Pym, it will be re
membered, was the pioneer of pirlia
mentary rights in the days of Cnarles

the assertion of their liboi ties as en
croached upon by a despotic king.

have been devoted to a steady exten
sion of democratic principles, and be is
leading the people in a movement
which goes as directly against the
privilege nf the aristocracy as tho
movement of Pym went against tbe
privileges of the Crown. Pym's great

terpart today in G.adstone'a famous
election campaigns. Then as to the
potty scandals. Pym's was a nature
of as wide a range of sympathy and
action as Gladstone's; like tbe mod
ern tribune his social temper was the
very opposite oi wnat is supposed to
he the orthodox temper of a revolu
tionist. His manners were genial and
even courtly; he turned easily from
an invective against titratlord to a chat
with Lady Carlisle, and precisely, as
in Gladstone's case, this trace and
gayoly of social tone, oven when upon
the vvrge of the grave and when under
tho weightiest of his rublio cares, waa
seised upon by tbe prurient royalists
as an occasion for their silly and nasty
gonsip. 15 ut, as urecno says ol fym.
and as may with equal truth be said I
of Gladstone, it was Mils strikirg com
bination ofgtnlal versatility with a
massive force in bis nature which
marked him out from the first moment
of power as a born ruler of men. He
proved tnnison at once the subtlest of
diplomatists and the grandest of dema
The old iashioncdcour:unerB, wtwen
is such a winning mark of Mr. Glad
stone's manners, I have not dwelled
upon. He is one of the few remain
ing specimens to be met with in so
ciety of what is known as the o'd
school. Indeed, be belongs, as far n

whether in Parliament or in roclety,
he bows ai deeply and as inmrea
sively as 81 r Char es Grandlson him
self. Tho modern bow is. a sort of
prrf:irctory bob of the head and

irn performer felt conscious that he
was engaging In a Billy proceeding.
Mr. Gludstune's bow, whether on be
ing introduced to a lady or on asking
Mr.Bpenter s leave to oring in a bill.
is a Beiiotis and elaborate act of cour
tesy and grace the bow of a com tier
bending to kiss bis sovereign s hand.
Even when in conversation, especially
with ladies, he is constantly making
gracious inclinations of the heed. Old
age bas not taken from his limbs their
native grace, any more than it has
their stiength. Indeed, there are few
of the younger generation of politi
cians of my acquaintance who dis
play anything like tne vigor
and suppleness of limb shown
by Mr. Wladt-tone. A few Sundays
ago I met him walking in Ft. J sines
Park. As sprucely dressed as any
"dude," inatlosely butt.med black
frock co!, with a blooming Marshal
Niel rose in his buttonhole, he s'.rode
along at a puce ihut made the pair of
young people by his s de, his (on and
daughter, pant with the exertion of
keepior up with it. In speaking, the
vigor ol his gesticulation almost bor
ders on the extravagant. Sometimes,
in warm pssaagf s hs bends his knees
and then springs his whole body up
ward, snd remains pois! upon" his
toes until, with Bn equally powerful
emphwie, he finishes the period by
bringing his hands, which have been
thrown nbove his heiid, suddenly
down, and standing rigidly erect.
Sometimes, too, be whirls round upon
his heels, is if be wereonapivot,when
addressing a retort t? acme opponent
behind him. When he leaps luto that
attitude upon hia teen, as if poising for
a spring, hia grand maisive head
thrown backward, as if .tie had tossed
back a mane, the bent fore finger of
scorn p.iititiug toward an enemy, he
looks a figure magnificently leonine.
I have already. I think, in these col
umns compered bim thus poised to

THE lALUSflUAL OUTLOOK
BUnifactoreri Restricting; Them
selves to tbe Demand, Which
ISFICIAL TO TBI ArriAL.I
Philadelphia, Pa., Jnly 6. Tbe
characteristic feature of the industrial
situation throughout the United
States is tbe restriction of supplies to
actual or probable market demands.
Heretofore market demands have
been too largely lost sight of, bnt at
thia time they are caiefully studied.
Stocks are moderate everywhere, and
hence prices are firm, even where mar
gins over cost are very narrow.
The diflicullioa in the Western iron
trade have been adjusted, and already
there are-cridencos of a swelling de
mand, which is not, however, likely
to assume proportions that will cause
eny enhancement of values. Tbe
Philadelphia mill strike ailotts only
1500 men. T,hu mills in the interior
will continn. 'ai s are $2. lUils,
'I4 to i'lS. Forjre iran, $16. Foundry,
J18 to 10.
Tho strong npward movement in
wool on to'.h sides of tbe Atlantic con
tinues, snd mannfticturEM hers and
throughout New England, feol justified
in making exteut-ive iiir. ii'HPH for fu
ture requirements. Nearly all labor
dispntes huve been adjusted and mills
and fa' tories will run full time after
July 12th. The wool sales lust week
wera the latest for tbe year.
Trade conditions generally are ex
cellent. A large volume of businew,
that would have been done during tbe
second quaitt-r of tho year, will be
done this quarter.
The revival in btiild'ng activity
throughout th country is general and
permanent, snd a'l kinds oi building
material ate bringing good prices. Tbo
estimated increase in building this
year over last, is moderately estimated
at 10 per cent., wbile the commercial
failures have decreased 2 per cent, in
number, and 33 in amount of liabil
ities. The demand for carpets, clothing,
hosiery, blankets, silk and upholstery
goods will be such as to engage all the
old and new productive capacity, and
will very probably stimulate farther
expansion of capacity in Pennsylvania.
New Jersey, New York, New England
and at som few points in the cotton
The movement in lumber has been
libeial and at steady prices. White
and yellow pine, spruce, hemlock and
poplar has been freely bought for pil
ing, as well as for urgent building de
mands. The yellow pine supply is
increasing faster than any other, and
that wood commands strong prices.
Tbe bard woods are all firm and
Tbe coal trade presents nothing
new. ' Anthracite is guarded. Prices
are weak. Cutting is going on. Labor
is qniet, but disposal to make trouble.
Production is 1,700,003 tons ahead of
lost year. The Eastern bituminous
trade is heavy. Throughout tbe
Western States mines are ranting ir
regu'arly and labor disturbances are
possible over the nonobservanes of
recent wage stipulations. The full
consumption will Increase eteadily,
though the prices will remain about
where thev are.
Railroad building, especially west of
the Mississippi, will be vigorously
prosecuted. Kail mills have but little
room for orders for this year's deliv
ery. Randall's tariff' reduction from
1 17 to till would allow English rails
to be put down on the Atlantic coast
at 132; present mill quotations, Jlil to
$3U. - Tne increasing trallic and earn
injrs on come twelve systems of rail
ways, aggregating 28,000 miles of road,
are strengthening cot) lidence and lead
ing to more liberal expenditures by
railroads for material, new branch
lines, etc. English investments are
increasing in certuin safe properties.
itie latest crop and provision mar
ket repcrls lean to decliuing prices,
but cotintcraitiog in 11 nonces will verv
soon devo'op themselves, arising cut
of the genotul expansion of consump
tive demand, winch producing inter
ests are fully prepared to meet, with
prices sustiining caution.
J lie linancul sitnntion is the strong
est factor and a fiords the strongest as
surance of continued trade vitality.
xue Btippiy of money is equal to ail
demands, but not largo enough to in
duce speculative movements, oven
were the producing cipacity not so
abundantly qualified to protect the
consuming interests at every point.

a sufferer from EXCRUCIATING PAINS
ACROSS MY KOKEUKAD AND MY NOS
TRILS. The discharges were so offensive
that I heaitate to mention it, except lor the
good it may do some other sufferer. I have
spent a young fortune from roj earnings
during my forty years of suffering to obtain
relief from the doctors, I have tried patent
medioines every one I eould learn of from
the four corners of the earth, witb no relief.
And AT LAST (67 years of age) have met
with a remedy that bas oured me entirely
made me a new man. I weighed 128 pounds,
and now weigh 148. I used thirteen bottles
of the medioine, and the only regret I have
is, that being in the humblo walKi of lile I
may not have influence to prevail on all ca
tarrh sufferers to as what bas cured me
