warm clothes, and the old

inte an imperative demand. The
first step in the process of habit

surely yield to those who invest
in them big and long continued
dividends of satisfaction.

The Irish Agitator is Thundered
Upon by the Times.
The Latest News From London
an Insane Hospital
Sensational Kei from Paris.
Paris, January 27 I,o Gii Bias makes
some sensational statements about the Lon
don explosions. It declares positively that
the authors of the explosions are the same
men who made the dynamite attack on Lon
don Bridge and the Gower Street Railway
station. The organizers of both plots, Le Gil
Bias asserts, have been for a long time paat,and
are now employed in an English printing
office in Paris, and until a recent date lodged
in the St. Denis quarter of Pans, where they
manulitctured infernal machines used in com
mitting the diabolical deeds.
Washington, January 2C Senate. The
oath was administered to Jonathan Chase,
senator-elect from Rhode Island.
The credentials of Don. J. D. Cameroa,

The Thunderer on Parnsll.
Lesbos', January 27. The Times contin
ues its onslaught on Parnell with a stinging
article, which says: "Parnell's studied
silence regarding the dynamite outrages calls
to mind his attempt to ignore Foster's in
dictment of the Parnellites as being tbe
moral accomplices of the Pocenix Park
assassins." The Times assures the Irish agi
tators that their present policy of murder
and silence will not pay. They will never
succeed in coercing tbe House of Commons
into a naked revolution by means of spoil.
TBE DAILY NEWS.
The Daily News thinks it almost an insult
to ask Englishmen to keep their beads in face
of such outrages, but claims that the worst

appeal from the decision, and is in effect an
order for a new trial.
Kansas on Oklahoma.
Topeka, Kansas, January 27. There is an
increasing sentiment throughout Kansas in
justification of tbe Oklahoma settlers. Both
houses of the Legislature have adopted strong
resolutions, requesting Senators and Repre
sentatives in Congress to favor the opening
ot the Territory to settlement, and there is
scarcely an expression in public or through
tbe newspapers indorsing tbe anticipated
action of the Doited States troops.
The people are watching developments
with great interest, and the threatened
conflict is generally condemned. New col
onies are forming in different parts of the
State and those now in the territory are re
ceiving .daily accession. Three hundred
men are said to be ready ti move from Cald
well next Monday if matters are not brought
to a crisis by that time. A State convention
is called to meet at Topeka, February 3rd, to
take action in the interest of parties desiring
to locate at Oklahoma.

The war office, at London, mads public the
contents of a dispatch received Moiday after

for anxiety in this long absence of intelli
gence. The firat news of the battle at Abu

No information but that brought by these
Arabs has yet reached Korti. Whatever ad

dispatched, Wolseley says must come by
camel carriers with ordinary British escort.
A Greyhound's Long IiCaps.
Capt Ed Murphy lias a beautiful
greyhound. Recently Capt. Murphy
paid a visit to relatives at Urbana and
took his hound along for the purpose
of having a little sport. In company
with some of his friends he went out
hunting, and near a lane which was
thirty-three feet wide and bordered on
both sides by a stake-and-rider fence,
got up a rabbit. The hound gave chase
and the rabbit ran under the fence.
Tho first jump the hound made it
cleared twenty-five feet, going over ono
of the fences and landing in the lane.
Without any preliminary motion it
made tho second leap, and covered the
immense distance of thirty-three feet,
clearing the fence on tho other side of
the lane. There was a heavy fall of
snow, and it was therefore an easy mat
ter to determino the distance covered
by the prints of the dog's feet in the
siiow. The distance was measured by
Capt Murphy and three others who
witnessed the remarkable feat, and
their report made it as mentioned
above. Cincinnati Enquirer.
It has been said for a century that at

which show that tho winter tempera
ture in Yuma is much lower that it is
in Los Angeles, while in regard to rain
that locality has frequent showers, and
oot very small showers either.

hat his wife weighed 225 pounds.
This was clever, indeed, for a Maine
aian, but the wild Westerner gives a
nore striking example of steal meeting
Ucal. A railroad restauranter had tho
floor of hi dining-room entrance so
beautifully balanced and attached to

Making it I'Icssant for the Horse.
Mr. Torreyson.the blacksmith of this

animals. He has just built a road cart,
now on exhibition at his blacksmith
shop, which is destined to revolution
ize traveling by road ami to materially
lighten the labors of that noble animal

horse's neck, and the others m the

distributed over his body and does not

Smokers in the White House.
"So the White House is to have an
other smoker," said an old attache of
that establishment, as he carefully
nursed a fragrant Havana and watched
the rings of smoke ascend toward the
frescoed ceiling. "I see that Mr. Cleve
land is a smoker. Well, there has boen
pretty constant smoking here since
Grant came in. There was an interreg
num, so to speak, under Haves, who
did not smoke, nor did any of his boys;
but with that exception the presidents
siucc Lincoln have all been smokers.
Mr. Lincoln did not smoke nor ehow.
Johnson did, so did Grant, so did Gar
field, so does Arthur, and so will Cleve
land. There weio great times among
th- smokers when Grant came in. It
seemed as though even body hero
smoked then. I remomher up in the
president's room at the capitol, w hen
he used to go up there to sign bills on
the closing davs of thu session, the
smoke was so thick that you could cut
it with a knife, as the saving is. No,

dinner with tho fatnilv there. She h id

w Processes by V hit li They Are Mad
and IIiiit to Kili.t Thriu I'lio-
Ui;railijr, AM Culled In.
"Tho photographed counterfeit bank
bill is cry common," said John S.
Dvo, Government counterfeit detective,
yesterday. "There am two processes,
called tho 'old' and the new.' Uy the
old process the w hole of the back of
tho note is copied and appeals in black
on tho photogr.u h. It is then tinted
with pens and brushes by hand. The
black, however, can be seen uiler tho
tint, which on the seal is blotted and
covers tho white lines which appoar in
the genuine note. The numbering is
aIo blurred with color and the whole
of the tinting on the back of the note is
badly done and incomplete.
"The detection of the photographed
counterfeits depends on a critical ob
servation of their character anil appeal -ancc.
Unless they are peifcctly new,
they arc off color, and snow the red
dish brown, peculiar to faded photo
graphs, uy the new process the seal,
numbers, and color-work on the back,
whether pink, carmine, chocolate, or
green, are first entirely removed from
tho note, to bo imitated. A negative
is then taken from thu black which re
mains. To produce the color-work an
engraved plate of the seal, and tho
tinted part of the back are used and
tho tints are clearly surface-printed
in their places. The numbers a.o also
printed in colors from separate engrav
ed figures used in combination and
changeable. Theso figures are well
done and run in a series, and unlike
tho spurious bills made by the old pro
cess, are really dangerous.
"All genuine bills are printed from
plates made four in a set and lettered
respectively A, IJ, C and D, except in a
few cases where certain banks have
been supplied with bills lettered respec
tively E, F, G and II. These aro called
'check letters,' and appear in various
places upon tho face of notes or bills,
according to their issiio and denomina
tion. Now here is the description of a
counterfeit bill, taken in New York
City a few days ago: Check letter A,
series 1875, act of March 3, 1863,
Treasury number 153420232, plate 22,
John Allison, Register; A U. Wyman,
Treasurer. It is one of the 'old style'
photographs, printed on plain paper,
coarso and heavy. The seal and cyioid
work are very pale and the numbering
fair. The lathe-work on back and in
two counters on the (hoc is so blurred
that hardly a line can bo seen. Tho
ink and red numbers are very good so
far as tho shade of color goes. Tho
note on face has a blurred appearance
and is very dark. It is of the same
length as the genuine bill. The coun
terfeit is not dangerous, but well cal
culated to deceive the inexperienced.
Immigrants are the most frequent
"One of the cleverest engravers of
counterfeit plates of modern times is
Uharles t. Ulncii. in iSib lie lived at
Sixth and Cumberland streets in this
city. A man named Henry C. Cole
was his business partner, and Jacob
Ott. a German lithographer, did the
printing. In 1877 Ulrich went to live
with the Ott family at Oak Lane, on
tho North Penn Railroad, and there
finished tho plate of a $50 counterfeit
In the same lioiite the bills were print
ed. The-e were imitations of bills on
the Central National Hank of Now
York City and the Third National Bank
of Buffalo, N.'Y. It so happens, also,
that all the $50 national bank counter
feits, including eight different banks in
tho State of New York seven of which
were in the city were printed from
ono engraved plate. Tho simple
change from one bank to another was
done by the use of skeleton plates.
"One hundred thousand dollars
worth of these fifties was printed in
Ott's house. The greater part of them
was sold by Cole and earned to Ger
many by J. E. Coukling and John
Baker and there passed off on tho
bankers and people. None of them were
put in circulation in the United States
before they had been circulated in Ger
many, nor until a largo number of
them were niougnt hack all at once to
New York by immigrants on tho Ger
man steamer Heule r. May 22, 1871
"The discovery was made by W.
Hoffman, the expert at the office of the
Pennsylvania Uailioad company, at
which office a fifty-dollar bill on the
National Broadway -Kuik. of New York
City, had been tendtieij by a Mr. Jos
eph. He claimed to have iccoived the
bill from Israel iV Co , bankers at Ham
burg, and t!w iiunnuratits on the Herd
er were soon found passing sknilar
counterfeits. Subsequent ly each steam
er from Germany biougiit quantities of
theso bilU, which wure 'ho esT in Eu
rope until the capture at Munich of J.
E. Conk ling and his associates."
"Are there any other methods of
counterfeiting besides photography and
"Oh, yes; but tlieyar easily detect
ed, being gener illy clumsily executed.
There are lithographs etchings, and
pen-work counterfeits. Spurious $1
and ?2 United State Treasury notes
are of this kiud, and it is only on ac
count of their small denomination that
they have any cucul ition. Then, again,
the vignette heads are occasionally cut
from notes of small value, the back re
moved and the face neatly cemented
over the inferior work of "poor fifties,
which are thus made passable."
"How are the public to discriminate
between genuine bills and forgeries."
"Well, of course, thcieiu lies the pos
sibility of successful forgeries. If the
general public was so well acquainted
with tho appearance of genuine bills as
instantly to be able to delect spurious
ones, the counterfeiter's occupation
would be goue. Whenever a counter
feit (with the exception of a photo
graphic, lithographic, acid etching, or
pen made one, any of which frauds
should be detected at a glance) of a
national bank bill appears, the genuine
bill is a rapidly as possible withdrawn
from circulation. 1 he fact that a coun
terfeit has been 'shoved' is published
as soon as it is discovered and it is tho
duty of everybody to thereafter refuse
or be very careful in accepting bills of
that denomination. We aro even now
expecting that in a short time a new
spurious bill will be 'shoved.' We
have not yet traced it to its origin, but
we have our eyes open and are on the
look-out." 1tiladelphia Tunes.

carnations or a deep damask rose. A
young debutante's equipments are a
high sleigh with coachman seated at
the back. The popular color, ocher
with scarlet facings or red and black;
robes to match, and a pale pink rose or
chrysanthemum in her attentive (or
otherwise) attendant's button-hole. A
pretty litt'e novelty for a racer is of
dark mahogany-painted wood, with
room for ono; a brilliant nosegay is
f minted on ono side and a group of
iorses' on the other; dark robes with
handsome tigers' heads, and gay har
ness and plumes high on saddle, with
bells forming a fountain, are the oddi
ties of this make-up. A high box sleigh
of red with odd devices done in India
ink and with silver-fox robes and silver
and gilt streaked reins are nice for a
lady to handle. The whip has a chime
of bolls tied with gold and silver colored
ribbons. A good little sleigh for a fast
trotter is of miniature construction, of
ruby ground and gray flowers and
trappings; very light and a tight fit for
ono to get into. A low phaeton is of
bluo shade outside with garnet velvet
equipments inside, and harness trap

A Satisfied Oragonlan.
Hon. A. J. Uufur, and wife, who
have just returned from a visit to their
old home in Orange county, Vermont,
after an absence of thirty years, report
having had a very pleasant trip. They
traveled extensively-in Wisconsin and
Southern Illinois, but saw no place that
suited them so well as Oregon. Mr.
Uufur gives rather a discouraging ac
count of the agricultural prospects of
Vermont He said he thought he was
getting to be ouite an old man till he
went back and saw men of from 80 to
90 years toddling around runnin"
farms. Tho soil is all worn out an3
the young men are "all going West"
The old farmers there would not allow
Mr. Uufur to give their boys any fa
voiable account of the West, sayiu"
that they were all going off, and the
land was passing into the hands of their
hired help of foreign birth. Some one
said of Vermont a long time ago that
"it was a good place to emigrate
iroiu, aim mr. iuiur seems to nave
thought so thirtv years ago, and now
think, so more than ever. The farm
that he sold for t.MOO has since been sold
for SI, GOO, and would not bring that
amount now. In one night passed in
Wisconsin Mr. Uufur says he heard
more thunder and saw more lightnin"
thin during his twenty-five years' res"
dencr in Oregon. I'ortlaml Oregoman.
A Spot in the Bermudas.
The Queen's Stairway, the lake that
flames up like a vast sheet of damp
sulphur when an oar is thrust into it
at night, the pineapple jungles, the
sponge fishers, the gardens in plain
sight beneath the sea these are alf
very interesting, though it would seem
that the climate, and luxuriant vegeta
tion, and tho ravishing beauty, com
bined with a good hoteito start with,
ought to be enough. To the man who
was there five hours it constantly re
turns to his mental sight like a dream
or a vision, of something almost too
reposeful, too beautiful, and too strange
to bo real. Tho prettiest spot of the
whole island, without doubt, is the
little cove at Waterloo, two miles or
more from tho city. Imagine a placid
little bay, whose water is colored like
the rainbow, framed in a horseshoe of
white sand, fringing tho shelving sides
of a hollow like a huge broken bowl of
verdure. Picture this, je kedhere and
there with stately palms and broad
leaved plants, ornamented with a pret
ty, toy-like fort, and a few tropical
country houses. Add the blue and
white sky above the gaudy water and
beyond, where sky and water blend to
gether, the dark, blue ocean.
A llemnrkablo Tutu.
A lady in Newport w ho honors me
with her friendship owns a remarkable
dog. He is a King Charles spaniel, I
beneve. Tho dog is certainly a beauty
with his silky coat, his long ears and
his sympathetic eyes. I don't know
his name; it is "Too-too," "Tutu," or
"Toto," they all sound alike, and I
never have seen tho dear dog's name
spelled out When this dog is on ex
hibition in the home of my friend, ho
does wonderful things. His mistress,
giving him a bit of cracker, says: "Tu
tu, there is sugar in this, and sugar
costs a great deal of money." The dog
takes a Tittle bite, and in his mouth
hands if a dog can "hand" a thing
in his mouth the rest of the cracker
back. If he is told that the cracker is
cheap, that it did not cost any thing, he
cats it greedily. Sometimes he is told:
"Tutu, there is poison in the cracker,
don't cat it" Then he paws it to
pieces and puts it away from him. In
everything ho shows intellect and in
telligence. Darwin, if you remember,
exhibits a very pretty line between in
tellect and intelligence. Philadelphia
Two Strange fine's.
On the 3d of May. 1808, took place
the spectacular duel between M. Da
Grandpra and M. De Pigne in balloons
above Paris. An immense crowd of
people had assembled in a field near
the Tuileries. E ich principal was ac
companied by one second; the weapons
were blunderbusses-, and tho terms
were to fire at will. The ascent took
place, before noon, and when at a
height of about nine hundred feet, and
within less than eight yards of each
other, De Pigne opened" fire, and tho
masses below set up a great shout
But De Pigne missed, w hile De Grand
pro blazed away. Another shout, and
then all was still, for De Pigne's bal
loon had collapsed; the basket had
turned over and let the occupants out,
and they came dow n through the air
head first and were dashed to pieces
on tho housetops.
Another strange French duel was
this: Captain Kaoul De Vcre and Col
onel Barbier Dufal, of Paris, during a
quarrel, agreed to settle tho matter by
getting into a coach with daggers in
their right hands and with their left
arms tied, and fighting w hile tho car
riage was being driven twice around
the Place Du Carroiissel by their sec
onds. Kaoul was killed and Barbier
Dufal morlallv wound"1 "Z Wield

Tearsi of a Baby.
I think there is no sadder sight on
earth than a baby's tears. To see the
little round face that looks as if it were
only mado for laughing all twisted up
in a snarl of pucker, the bright eyes
squinted out of sight, and great real
tears coursing down the pudgy cheeks,
is enough to make a stoic weep in sym
pathy. It is as if the man in the moon
were crying. I knew an English father
who, whenever one of his babies and
there was a host of them cried, wonld
say in tones of comical distress, "he'd
rather sec a five pun note than one of
those tears any day," and it seemed to
those little ones to le the height of de
votion and sell-denial on nis part
Mrs. Paddock, a writer of Salt Lake
City tells a pathetic story of a broken
hearted wife whose first baby never
cried aloud but wept in silence all the
time, bleeping or waking the tears
flowed from his eyes, and in a few
weeks it died, its mother said of a
broken heart. It had shed all the tears
its mother had repre-sed before its
birth, and its weeping face was a sym
bol of the face of Utah. In antitltcsis
to these sad facts is a memory wo
nearly all can conjure up of some fat,
rascally baby who would cry and cry
and cry until some member of the fam
ily was enlisted in his cause, when he
would suddenly unbutton his eyes and
Io! not a tear would be there. It bad
been a crocodile baw I of the driest
iricf. iJetiuilErie Pi-ess.

The committee appointed by the Grand
Lodge of the Order of the Sons of St
George to frame the w ax counterpart
of the floral wreath sent by Queen Vic
toria to be placed on President Gar
field's collin have completed their work.
For two years the designer has been at
work upon the frame, and as a histori
cal work of art it is of much value. It
is a heavy frame ot English oak, made
from the'w ood of a tree that stood for
300 years and was cut down by the
British at the battle of Waterloo to
build a bridge. The frame is engraved
with oak leavcs.cxccpt across the lower
border, where the rose the Queen's
favorite flower intenvincs with the
hollyhock. At tho top of the frames
are engraved the sword and shield and
Bible, surmounted by the garter; on
the right the United States coat of arms
and on the left that of Great Britain.
Below is a gold plate bearing tho pres
entation words of the order to-tho Gar
field family. Across the top is writUn
'Honi soit qui mal y pense," and on
tho lower border "Strangulatus pro B-publica,"
