Among the many striking facts about
the new Tariff which have been un
earthed by Governer McKinley we find
this: In Woonsocket, R. I., ground which
a year age produced a ten of hay te the
acre new produces a ten of yarn te the
square feet. Js it any wonder that
Rhede Island votes for Protection?
v in all seriousness, ir the amount of
the Tariff is added te the price of the
article, why has net the three cents a
pound duty en Venezuelan coffee re
cently imposed by the President's pro
clamation been added te Its price? Will

! Tub number of immigrants urrived
in tlie United States during the month
of March, 1SU2, wns 53,871), as compared
' with 52,172 for March, 1891. The largest
of nny nationality during the month
was from Germany, amounting te 10,821;
from Italy, 0,675; from Russia, 0,082;
from Sweden and Norway, 5,049; from
Knglaud and Wales and Scotland, 3,801;
Ireland, 2,333, and from Hungary, 4,7H8,
and Austria, 3,842. New, isn't it a little
funny that se many people will insist
en leaving glorious Free-trade countries,
where everything is se cheap, and that
they will come te this Tariff-burdened
, country where everything is se expon expen
she according te Democratic-argument?
Therk is, ns usually the case en the
eve of an election, a vast deal of
demagogy about ene cent postage. The
Democrats are howling against Mr.
Wanamakeh because he is net in favor
of it with a thirty million dollar de
ficiency staring him in the face. When
It becomes possible te make the service
at least approximately self-supporting
at the present two-cent rate, Mr. Wana
maker will be among the first te
aihecate a reduction te one cent The
demagogy in this matter lies in the fact
that the class te be chiefly benefited is
the patent medicine venders and large
establishments that are able te pay the
two cent rate. The laboring man for
whom the Democrats nre se solicitous
writes probably four letters a year, and
the reduction would benefit him by the
enormous sum of four cents annually!
"Dr." Warner the patent medicine man
is said te pay a postage bill of $75,000 a
year. It would benefit him just $37 500
annually. Put the two bums side by
side, and you will readily see that it
Isn't the peer man who will be benefited
te any appreciable extent. Postage Is
cheap enough new.
Change of Feeling.
Harper n Week', which for some time
lias been a Mugwump lender, remarks
that "ever since the opening of Congress
enabled the country te see what Deme
cratlc success in 1890 and Democratic
victory in New Yerk in 1891 really meant,
there has been a great change of feeling
nmeng independent voters." Democratic
viclery 1ms invariably been the country's
misfortune It has been powerfully
illustrated In National and state govern
ment and in local affairs.

The silver producer, according te Con
gressman Harter, would be the main ben ben
edcinry under free ceinnge. The pur
chases of bullion D the Treasury since
1878 have nverat;ed above $1 03 per
ounce, and the Government would suffer
a less of $150,000,000 should It close out
its holdings at the present market value.
The silver agitation is still causing heavy
experts of geld while by the operation
of the ordinary laws of trade we should
be receiving at least $ 15,000,000 per month
from Europe. Mr. Harter suggests, as
the ;reat need of the country, some
scheme te accumulate geld bullion and

T.he life of a prqfesttlonel beuncerina
big hetel lit enu of upa and downs. He
1m mera euphoniously called n detectlve.
Ills salary Is small, but his muscles are
large. The ene who giive a New Yerk
Mull and Cxprtsn iikiu the detnila of u
Mid incident In hl9 career, as well ns a
few points of general Information re
garding his profession, had small re
gard for elegant English. Ills narrative
ran as follews:
" ou soe, I net only have te bounce
unruly people, but I've get te watch for
suspicious characters. When a robbery
occurs, If 1 don't track the thioves I am
Hable te be bounced by the propnetor.
'Taln't a llfe of ease by nny means.
New and then I get a job of slumming
and tnake a few extra dollars. Many
men, especially from the west, wnnt te
see all the bights of the city at night
That means a visit te the llewery and a
number of dives. A party of four or
five usually give me twenty-five dollars
for tlie night I don't bave parties
often. The secret of success In my pro
fession? I think It's blufE. Plcdge you
my wen! I've often been puzzled ever
seme petty robbery in the hetel und
had no Idea of a clew. But I just went
about saying I had my suspicions, and
the thief would seen be nabbed. Luck
always helped me out
"In all cases where a guest Is robbed
In his room suspicion naturally falls
first en the empleyes In the heteL. It Is
seldom that a sneak thief has the au
dacity te register and be assigned te a
room. Only a big bank burglar can
play the high-toned, respectable gent
In a first-class hotel. Hall boys new
and then develop into petty thieves, but
they are se amateurish I catch them
every time." '
"De you bluff when you go te put a
big man out who is raising a disturb
ance in the corridor?"
"All theso kinds of bluffs are celled.
I mean that it is no dead bluff te go up
te a big drunken fellow, catch him by
his coat cellar end try te push him out.
He may give fight, and then It is the
best man te win. Of course I can call
the porters te assist me, and that is
what the man being bounced out knows.
One night I get badly fooled. A rather
small, boylsh-leoklng fellow came In
nnd raised a disturbance. He just yelled,
as if he wanted te give, his lungs a
chance. I rushed up te him and said:
'See here, my boy, get out or hush up.'
He wns well dressed, and I didn't want
te be hard en him. That fellow, sir,
yelled again, right In my face, almost
as If he was anxious te be betiuced.
'Out you go!' I cried, reaching out my
hand te grab his cellar. I felt some
thing en my face, and the next thing I
knew I was getting up. The boy steed
" 'Ne funny business, you tough!' I
shouted, springing toward him. He
sprang- aside and hi t me a clip en the tem
ple that sent rac sprawling again. Hefore
I could get up, one of the porters who
thought he could bes rushed at the boy
and by a well-directed blew was sent te
the fleer. The boy started te the deer,
net running, but walking. I came up
with him again and he turned graceful
ly and gave me a lick en the nose that
hurt se I thought it was broken. I
staggered aside and the porter came up
again and get a blew and went back
holding his hand te his mouth. That
boy? lie slowly walked out and get his
money. It was a put-up job en me.
That boy was a professional light
weight prize tighter and had made a bet
with seme friends that he could come
in the hotel and yell and could walk out
leisurely without being bounced."
ADOUT THE RUBY.
Tfccre Are Thrce Klmls, Hut Only One
That In True.
There nre three kinds of rubies the
oriental ruby, the bpinel ruby and the
balas ruby. The first Is the only true
one. The latter differ considerably In
composition from the first The true
ruby is composed almost exclusively of
alumina, 6ays the Jeweler's Review. In
the latter are only scven-tentlis of
alumina, the remainder being chiefly
magnesia. Their color, moreover, is
due partially te the exide of chromium,
a, substance of which the genuine ruby
has net a trace.
In commerce the b'alas ruby has much
inferior value te the spinel. Thi& is
generally of a vivid peppy red color;
the balas is of a violet rose, although
Pegu has furnished white and white
violet spinels, and -Sudermnnia evpn
bluish-gray ones. It can be seen at
once, therefore, hew extremely er
roneous would be a clarification of
gems by color or general appearance
alone. The primitive form of the spinel
ruby is like that of the diamond, eight
sided, which distinguishes it nt once
from the oriental stone.
Tlie color of tha genuine ruby Is that
of arterial bleed, or pigeon's bleed, as
it is celled. It is extremely hard, and,
after the sapphire, is the hardest of the
cerundums, which renders It difficult te
understand why the earth se rarely
gives It up. Its tint Is as beautiful by
artificial light as by day, and its powers
of refraction se great that ancient be
lief credited it with power of emitting
light The ancients even supposed that
it would Bhlne through clothing with
The largest ruby known Is ene men
tioned by Chardln ns having been en
graved with the name of Shelk Sephy.
Anether noble ruby is in the possession
of the shah of Persia. Ita weight is put
at one hundred and soventy-five carats.
A third, belonging te the king of Usa
par, was cut into a hemispherical form
and In 1033 was bought for thirteen
thbnsand eight hundred and sixty-six
dollars. A ruby possessed by Gustavus
Adelphus, and presented te the cwirinn
nt the time of his journey tp St Peters
burg, was the size of a small hen's egg.

especially in England, Franca and Oer

And the woman te whom all this non
sense was told, says the New Yerk Re
corder, listened with polite, but firm
disbelief, and then said: "New, in re
turn for ypur information, I'll tell you
hew te manage a man. Ask his advice;
first last and always ask his advice.
Nothing delights a man se much ns te
have a woman defer te his opinions and
accept Ills statements with an air of
profound relief. lie likes te domineer,
and giving advice is a species of dom
ineering. "If you want te have him think yeu're

mainspring of your watch, ask him te

QUEEN AND PRIEST.
The Sovereign Ilemcmbercd the Hey Who
A short time nge, says tlie New Yerk
Recorder, the queen regent of Spain
wrote te his holiness the pope asking
him te grant a bishopric te a peer and
humble priest and the son of a Tyrelese
shepherd. The interest shown by the
young sovereign in this peasant's son
hed Its source in nn Incident which took
place when Maria Christina was a little
archduchess of five years.
She was ene day .reaming about the
hills with her governess when a violent
storm came en, and they took shelter in
a shepherd's hut which was near at
hand. A little boy was amusing him
self with some pebbles In a corner of
the miserable dwelling when they en
Resenting the sudden intrusion, the
boy marched up te the little arch
duchess and gave her n smart blew en
the back. Peer Maria Christina, offend
ed and hurt by this extraordinary ac
tion, burst into a violent fit of weeping,
end was pacified with 'the utmost diftl
culty. A few years later, when her imperial
highness partook of her first commun
ion, she expressed a desire of paying
for tlie dresses worn by seme peer com
municants, among whom happened te
be the boy who had once struck her. her.
She remembered him at once, and hear
ing that he wished te becoine a priest
she undertook te defray all the expenses
of his education.
Ever since that day the queen has
lften a true friend te tlie peer priest,
and she wrote te him befere asking
from tlie pope the bishopric above men
"I want you te become a bishop, be-
cause you lenew se well hew te crcts
mare." In tills word, which means the laying
en of hands or confirmation, she made a
sly allusion te the time when, as a boy,
he laid hands violently upon her.

Charley was net, for she centinued: "Oh,

idly en a light piece of beard which she
had taken from her deak and was hold

"De you knew," said a man the ether
day, "therq is one phrase pf words
which when applied te a woman seems
toplease her mere than anything else
in the English" language which ypu can
call her? And that phrase is 'a woman
of the world.' Of course I use that term
in its best sense. I never saw the woman
who didn't involuntarily bridle and
smirk If you called her that
"Be she peasant or princess, an old
country dame knowing nothing outslde
