AS TO LEAP YKAK.
Leap year is ushered In with tho
usual arguments in favor of woman's
right to propose. "If Jecms thinks
kind of Belinda," says ono nuthority,
"very good; he may mention tho mat
ter. But if Belinda is enamored at
Jeems, her lips nre sealed. Out upon
any such unreasonable sex discrimina
tion as this!" This is violent nonsonso.
Tho attitude of woman toward man in
society now is that of a queen toward
a subject. Tho proposal, when right
ly analyzed, is not tho command of a
ruler, but tho pica of n suppliant. It
is tho woman wilt) lias tho final right of
choice. A man selects from among
his femalo acquaintances tho woman
or women whom ho will ask; tho wo
man selects from among her suitors
tho man whom sho will have. She
has all tho (rawer to pick and choose,
without tho humiliation of rejection.
If Belinda is enamored of Jeems, neith
er her lips nor her eyes aro sealed. If
she is an American, and cannot make
Jeems understand tho condition of her
heatt, without striking him with tho
siciigo hammer of a formal offer of
marriage, it would bo better for her to
take her sentimental wares to another
market; Jeems is too stupid to bo mar
ried. Leap year Is a mere joke, but
any attempt to put tho fancy into
serious practice would placo a limit
upon tho supremacy of the sex.
Foit the last six years tho world has
not produced as much brcadstuffs as it
has consumed. There must have
been a surplus of 500,000,000 bushels
stored as a reserve.
A crisis is approaching in Samoa,
where King Malietoa has determined
to crush tho rebellion and ruu the
government regardless of foreign in
terference. Tho year opens iuauspi-
ciously in several parts of tho world.
A Philadelphia tirm has just com
pletcd arrangements in that eitv for

factory in tho United States. Tho an

Mits. Gladstone is said to bo very
fond of making mince pics, aud it
would be of interest to kuow, iu view
of his advanced years and wonderful
retention of his powers, if Mr. Glad
stone is fond of eating this favorite
culinary product of hi3 estimable wife.
If lie docs run to a miuco pio diet, his
3 cars and achievements aiise fully to
tho level of the miraculous.
TiiF.itE is probably no foundation in
truth for tho story that Kaiser William
is coming to this country, but in easo
he should there is a chanco for him to
learn a good deal about tho scienco of
government and what exercise of pow
er goes farthest towatds securing the
confidence and loyalty of thoso affect
ed. If iu the proper framo of mind tho
kaiser could gain vast quantities of
The vctsatillty of tho grip is not the
least imposing feature of that malady.
An Indiana man who had it is now as
bald as a pool-ball. His mustache
dropped into his dinner plafo one day,
when he was convalescing, aud then
ho moulted his eyebrow s, and his hair
fell out. Now his own looking-glass
would not know him. Apparently the
only things the grip is incapablo of
doing for a man aro to call a doctor
and pay his bills.
Sir William TuonrsoN has inform
ed tho Royal Society of England that
tho axis of tho earth is altering its
direction. Just how she points now is
not stated, but Berlin is considerably
father north than matked on the map,
aud tho Sandwich Islands have moved
a like distance to tho south. Geogra
phers decide that tho axis of tho earth
must be changing its auglo to tho
ecliptic, and if tho progression is very
rapid the United States is llablo to bo
gradually transferred to tho torrid
South Afkica is taking steps to
prohibit Chinese immigration. Tho
prejudice against Chinamen is almost
world-wide. Thero may bo a few
South American countries where thoy

China herself treats strangers in an in
hospitablo way. Tho gates of iter
cities aro barred against them. Tho

The managers of tho Columbian Ex
position havo decided that they will
let liquor bo sold within reasonable
lestrictions on tho grounds aud in tho

The stories that Mr. Blaino is going
to dcclaro himself on the Presidential
question havo died out recently. When
they aro started again each wild mind
od writer of tho same will bo required
to furnish an affidavit with each story.
The will of ono Schuy Skaats, a lato
Now Yorker of wealth, is being con
tested. It is of evidence that ho snor
ed in church and was the persistent
manufacturer of puns. Tho former,
wo bolply declare it, is not an evi
dence of insanity, but when it comes
to continuous punning wo respectfully
abide the finding of tho court.
Stand by your friends in adversity.
Any chump can stand by them in pros
perity, its no trick at all. When a
man has ieldcd to a temptation too
strong for him, and remorso fastens on
him liko a beast of prey and all tho
world looks black, then is tho time for
friendship to corao forward liko a very
angel, tako him by tho hand and bid
him bo of good cheer, for all is Hot
lost and tho chances for redemption
are crowding all around him. A weak
friend is almost as bad as a falso
friend. What a heaven wo could
mako of this world if wo wcro stead
fast aud unselfish in our friendships
and could riso above tho cowardly and
ignoblo work of kicking a man every
timo ho is down. Tho world is full of
human wrecks to-day becauso selfish
men have been traitors to 'heir friends.
A Plan for an international silver
congress at Chicago during tho World's
Fair in 1893 is now being petfected by
leading Democrats in Washington with
a view to tho ultimate settlement of
tho silver question on a permanent
basis and its immediate retirement as a
political issue. This plan has been
under consideration by certain leaders
of tho party for three or four weeks,
and efforts have been made to keep it
secret until its authors should be ready
to place it beforo tho public. The
discussion has been confined altogether
to members of the Democratic patty,
and tho leaders of tho freo silver as
well as tho anti-silver factions of the
party havo been brought iuto consider
ation. Influential men on both sides
havo given tho plan their approval,
and it is now believed that a sufficient
number of pledges havo been secured
to insure success. It is therefore prob
able that a bill will soon bo prepared
and introduced in the Houso embody
ing tho scheme, of which somo details
still remain to be perfected.
The Chileans havo taken anew turn.
From being mortal enemies of Ameii
eans they wish to single us out for
especial honor as tho only nation to
which they shall send an Embassador
or Minister. In a debate on the sub
ject of reducing expenses tho abolition
of all tho Chilean Ministries to Europe
was advocated, but tho relation of that
to tho United States was urged. Tho
Chileans havo for many years disliked
tho United States, we think becauso
this country lias been studiedly mis
represented by foreigners doing busi
ness in Chile, who havo apprehended
disaster to their trade if this country
should get a foothold there. But the
false impression will soou be removed
if amicable relations aro resumed, for
it ought not to tako the pcoplo of a re
public a great while to learn that in
the long run their best friends must bo
people w ho believe iu their system of
government, and not thoso whose great
est delight would bo to witness tho
destruction of tho republican form of
government wherever it exists.
The Behrinx sea negotiations arc
not proceeding with the smoothness
which would encourago tho belief that

No real obstacles have recently inter
posed, but tho government is strug
gling with poor success to dlstrttb tho
inertia of tho British Government and
secure a fonvatd movement on its part
toward beginning tho long-expected
arbitration. It is two months now
since tho last definite proposals on tho
subject were exchanged. Secretary
Blaine hail so far yielded to Minister
Salisbury's request as to cousent to a
reference, of tho question under conten
tion to a tribunal composed, of seven
persons. Ono of these arbitrators was
to represent Canada, ono Great Britain
and two tho United States, tho remaiu
incr tlirco to bo selected from other
nations. Up to this point everything
progressed smoothly and uninterrupt
edly, but wheu it camo to an agree
ment upon tho three neutral arbitra
tors thero camo a hitch. Great Brit
ain could not bo indttcod to submit any
names of persons acceptable to hor and
has not up to this time. Unless Lord
Salisbury speedily gives attention to
tho negotiations tho prospects aro
favorable to a renewal of tho modus
vivcudi, with all its harrassing featur

I had been troubled five months
with Dyspepsia. The doctors told
me it was chronic. I had a fullness
after eating and a heavy load iu the
pit of my stomach. I suffered fre
quently from a Water Brash of clear
matter. Sometimes a deathly Sick
ness at the Stomach would overtake
me. Then again I would have the
terrible pains of Wind Colic. At
such times I would try to belch and
could not. I was working then for
Thomas McHenry, Druggist, Cor.
Irwin and Western Ave., Allegheny
City, Pa., in whose employ I had
been for seven years. Finally I used
August Flower, and after using just
one bottle for two weeks, was en
tirely relieved of all the trouble. I
can now eat things I dared not touch
before. I would like to refer you to
Mr. McHenry, for whom I worked,
who knows all about my condition,
and from whom I bought the medi
