New York, Nov. 14. The young men
of the democratic party here, or at least
that section of the party which is disgust
ed with the quarrels of Tammany and Irv

kick up a stir. They aro now agitating
the propriety and necessity of organizing
an entire'y new democratic party, tho sue

whose membership they hope will sooner
or later represent tho best elements of the

I?an Frakcibco, Nov. 14. At the late

of Chinese immigration was submitted to

made apparent by the vote of California on
the same question two years ago-the offi

5,114 against 13 in favor.

Clbvklakd, Ohio, Nov. 14. At three

Among the inmates of the New

Tucker, who is serving a torm of fif

of trustees to cure for his inherit nice.
Tuckor is said to be a nephew of the

Regularity ami constancy iu the
pursuit of exercise are important, says
the Lancet, if perfect health is ex
pected to rc-iultiroui its employ incut,
it is far better for men to lead alto
gether a sedentary lite thau to be ir
regularly active. This caution is the
moro uceded siuco tho transition from
sedentary habits to arduous nud ex
hausting physical labor is of frequent
occurence. Again, the transition from
active habits to sedentary pursuits is
generally accompanied by a marked
disturbance of health, ainco organs
rotibcd to full activity by tho stimu
lus exercise gives to them are liable
to bo functionally derange! when that
stimulus Ls withdrawn. This, per
haps, would not bo so frequently ob
served, if instead of relapsing imme
diately, as is frequently the case, into
idlo habits as far as exercise is con
cerned, an attempt was made to en-
gago regularly, tor however short a

Insure brisk muscular movement, so
that the health acquired by exorciso

Soap dissolves the cuticle, or outer
layer of the skin, causing chaps or
roughness. Cleansing tho hands and
face with pasle of oatmeal ami water
avoids this. Keep on tho wahstaud a
box or jar of oatmeal and inako the
pasto as it may bo needed. This paste
applied to the face every morning will
improve the complexion and mnko thn
skin smooth and rosy. We have been
in tho habit of making fancy soap as
follow: Make a sat untied solution of
borax (the pulvcrir.ni is the best;.
Cut iuto it bits of fancy soap that nviy
bo on hand, or of castile or glycerine
soap. Let the mixture boil until the
soap ia dissolved. Make it as thick as
cream by boiling away the auperfluous
water or by adding more if it bo loo
