senator himself occupies a fine house
in Washington city and work- every
day at his correspondence like he did |
before he secured a minion a month
for bi.- spending money, indeed l??ng
before be ever owned a million for
any purpose whatsoever.
What be bothers with polities for I
can't imagine, when he can spend his j

that is to be seen in two hemispheres, '

Thc life of politicians in Washington :
has a gilded .?ide to thc shield but the ,
other side is very dark gray metal you
maybe sure. When they try to get j
there they race themselves to exhaus
tion in money, if not character, vety
often and when they ?lo get there gen- ;
erally they are scared at every twig
that craeks in thc pith fearful that
something will chouse them out ? f the
position and they spend their waking
hours trying to enjoy their greatness,
which is all the time clouded over by
the knowledge that somebody at
home, maybe several somebodvs are
laying pipe for the very place which
they cling to like it was their very
hope of salvation. If they are poor
and honest, they can live in decent
comfort, but if sue!; people spread
abroad their phylacteris there must be
more money than ihe law allows to
such a spread on their salaries?. Now,
why should a man whose income is
$250,000 u week and over $30,000 a
day trouble himself to occupy a scat
in the seuate chamber along with a
whole lot of folks who are not built
his way, and who arc sometimes in
such a strain financially that their
party friends must club in to raise
enough cash to keep the hniiiti quiet?
The time has been wheu such cliorts
were made to relieve an extravagant
United States Senator, and less than
a quarter ot a century ago to my owu
knowledge. In the name of peace
and decent living, why should a rich

Can Furn Negro White.
Philadelphia, December 18.-Dr.
Ienry K. Pancoast, the univer.-ity
(.ray specialist and skiographcr, dis
ovored that thc ooutinued use of the
v ra'ys on colored patients produces a
radual change in the shade of the
kin, and that in time it becomes cn
irely white. Thc discovory was
aade while treating a colored man for
disease known as lupus, which had of
ectcd thc patient's nose aud a part of
It was fouud that after the treat
ment had bc:n continued daily for
vera month the skin on the affected
art had become entirely white. In
ome way thc pigment of thc skin had
cen destroyed nod the change t>zz?r
d to bo permanent. As the patient
fas of the darkest hue, thc contrast
0 thc other portions of the face, thc
olor of which had remained unchaug
d, was decidedly markuu. Exped
ients on other persons seemed to
rovo that the same result was pro
uocd and although no such trial was
lade it is thought likely that in time
he enti.o skin of a oolored person
ould be so aoted upon.
During the summer Dr. Pancoast
ontinued his researches along this
nd other lines. This fall the colored
ian returned to thc hospital for eoui
Iction of thc treatment, and it was
elided to make an attempt to restore
he whitened skin to the original con
ition. Local applications of a heal
ng nature and 'tonics proved of no
ene?t and experiment was then beguu
7ith the different light rays.
It was decided to uso thc mys of a
'inson light, as this would both bene
t the disease and also, it was thought,
light restore the original color. At
rst the .change was very slight. In
act. so- *** treatments were mado be
ore th eu is any change at all. Then
gradual darkening of the skin was
oticed, and * this has been gradually
Dcroaaed till now the skin is of a dis
inot brownish tint, and it is thought
0 be only a matter of time till it is re
tored to the original shade.
Just how the rays have accomplish
d this result is not as yet clear, but
1 ie thought it has been done by a
eneral toning up of the akin and re
toring it to a more normal condition,
hus giving a better chance for tho
eplaoement of the destroyed tissue.

Sir: Why is not the mule r<pre
seo tel at the Horse Sh ow this year?
The Missouri mule may not be very
aristocratic or beautiful, hut he rep
resents four-legged prosperity in time
of war; and iti peace he gets to the
front every tiiue.
I love the mule. I admire his
Bobriety, patience, endurance and
sure-footedness; his vigor, strength
and courage. Therefore I miss the
mule at the Horse Show. I misa the
music of mule and hinuy, and I would
call consideration to a very curious
circumstance pertaioing to the voice
of tho mule and the hiuny.
The mule brays, while the hin ny
neighs. The why and wherefor of
this is mystery until we eom ; to
apply the knowledge afforded us by
the physiology of breeding, in which
we deduce from observation and phy
siological facts the rule that the male
give? the locomotive, the female the
vit.'il organs of the offspring.
Tho mule has the muscular struc
ture of its sir*', the ass; the binny has
the muscular structure of its sire, 'he
horse. The organs of voice in th?
former are those of its sire, thc ass;
hence it brays. The organs of voice
of th? latter are those of its sire, the
horse; hence it neighs.
Not only is a curious .natural prob
lem thus solved by the application of
the law, but the law is also strength
ened and confirmed in a manner which
we should little expect.
Never till I came to note these dif
ferences and reflect y pen them did I
dream that a peculiarity of voice in au
animal was to give me corroboration
of my views on Ireeding. - W. B.
