Mr. BaiTey Has 'Not
Made Up His Mind.
Burnet, Tex.s Aug. 21.
Hon. J. W. Bailey in a letter
addressed to a friend at this
place of date August 21, -says:
"Replying to your inquiry
about"3iie senatorial race I can
; only say that at this time it is
my -intention" to return to the
house of representatives next
year, and I will not, therefore,
be a candidate for the senate.
You will remember, of course,
that changes may occur be
tviea this and the senatorial
election which wouldinduce
site to believe that I could be
snore serviceable in the senate
than in the house, but I hav
Very little thought that such a
change will occur.''

it is -completely saturated, then 'placed

tiegin at one corner and press the picture
closely upon the adhesive surface, watch

varnished surf ace. V7hen this is finished,
put the picture away again, let it re
main until quite dry, then lay a wet
towel over the back of tho picture until
the paper is thoroughly soaked.
.Now begin at one corner, and, with
the fingers, frequently dipped in water
so that they will remain wet, rub off
the white paper. Continue this until all
the white portion is removed. This will
leave only the'tolor of the picture upon
the glaes. At the finish give the back a
rather heavy coat of transparent var

very thin second coat When this is per
fectly dry, frame the picture with a very
thin glass over the varnished side. Hang
m the window as a transparency. A
few attempts may be necessary before
expert handling is acquired, but perse

care and a little ingenuity very many
beautiful pictures may be prepared at

During the reian of Elizabeth the
fashion in binding underwent a consid
erable change, the graceful simplicity
of the early work, with its rather severe
and restrained ornament, giving place
to a heavy, overdecorated style, in which
a superabundance of gilding hid pover
ty of design. This style reached its
height in the bindings produced for
James I, which were commonly dotted
all over with flowers-de-luce or thistles,
while the corners were filled with a
heavy block of coarse design. During
the reign of Charles the bindings were
as a rule copied from French work and
the designs carried out with very small
tools; but, though foreign influence was
strongly felt at first, the English bind
ers soon struck out a lino of their own,
and Samuel Mearne, the binder to
Charles II, produced some admirable
work and seems to have introduced the
quaintly shaped panel which gave the
name of cottage binding to ff certain
class-of work. At a little later date an
Edinburgh binder whose name is un
known, but whose work is easily distin
guishable, executed some marvelous
pieces of work on very dark green mo
A Parliament Custom.
Before the speech from the throne is
read, when the houses are resumed in
tho afternoon, by the lord chancellor in
the houso of lords and the speaker in the
houseof commons it is the practice in
both houses to read one bill a first time
pro forma in order to assert their right
cf deliberation without reference to the
immediate cause of summons. This
practice is enjoined in the houso of loid
by a standing order. In the house of
commons the same form is observed
pursuant to ancient custom and of the
following, resolution, passed March 22,
1G03: "That tho first day of eveiy sit
ting in every parliament some one biH,
and no more, receiveth a first reading
for form sake." In the house of com
mons the clerk of parliaments produces
an ancient document which has served
this purpose for at least a century, en
titled "A bill for effectually prevent
ing clandestine outlawries," which is
duly read a first time and ordered to be1'

The human body is an epitome in na-J
ture of all mechanics, all hydraulics, all
.architecture, all machinery of every
kind. There are more than 310 mechan
ical movements known to mechanics to
day, and all of these are but modifica
tions of those found in the human body.
Ilere are found all the bars, levers,
joints, pulleys, pumps, pipes, wheels
and axles, ball and socket movements,
beams, girders, trusses, buffers, arches,
columns, cables aud supports known to
science. At every point man's best me
chanical work can be shown to be but
adaptations of processes of the human
body, a revelation of first principles
used in nature. William George Jordan

1137, when Ainaliiwas taken and plun

found a copy which he sold to an officer
for a few pence. The value of the discov
ery was soon apparent and the precious
volume" was taken to Pja and stored in

by tho Florentines, in 1415, the precious
volume was captured aud taken to Flor

of the Medici.

'"Whefr peoplejiare suffering from

tleman who was at one tinio a member

'Kb, but we can do something else.'
""With that he cut a reed, tying some
moss on the end of it. Then he dug into

water out of that thing?' I asked.

like to try it?'
