I ..1.l iiaur Candidate, far Office.
The prohibitionists held a state conven
tion at Seattle last week and nominated
a full ticket for the November election.
In some way Yakima is not represented
on the ticket. It is somewhat of a sur
prise that the cold shoulder was given to
our cold water people as tbey have been
quite active in the cause and while they
have not been able to control the appe
tites of citizens they have managed to
close the saloon* and general business
houses of North Yakima on Sunday and
drive a large amount of trade from tbe
city. This should be glory enough and
should bave entitled them to representa
tion on the state ticket. The ticket as
nominated is as follows.-
For governor, Rev. R. E. Danlsp, of
Seattle; lieutenant governor, A. C. Dick
enson ; treasurer, John Robbin; auditor,
C. C. lirindley; attorney general, A. E.
Griffith; superintendent of public in
struction, C. Neuberg; commissioner of
public lands, A. A. Flagg; stste printer
The presidential electors are D, T.
Denny of Seattle, J. J. Ashby of Pome
roy, A. A. Ulet of Walla Walla and R. F.
Whittum of Olympia.

J. L. Mcl'herson, the civil engineer,
wbo has been surveying the south bound
ary of the Yakima reservation, has the
following to tell the Seattle Tune* re
garding tbe sheep of this section :
"The number of sheep on their way to
the grazing grounds around Mount Ad
ams and the headwaters of th* Klickitat
river is far larger this year than ever be
fore. At Sunnyside alone there were 25,
--000 more sheep wintered there last winter
I than any previous winter. The day be
fore I began my return trip tbe advance
herds reached our camp which was at an
elevation of 550 feet above sea level, be
yond which there was from 10 to 15 feet
of snow. Learning this some of tbe
j herder* decided lo go np to ttie Bummit
and see for themselves. Tliey found it
I growing worse and decided it iui|>os*ilile
jll proceed farther, some deciding to go
| around tn tlie south, a distance nf fmtii
forty to fifty miles, while others do--ided
to graze alonit Ihe foothills of Ihe Bimcoß
range until the season is far eunuch ad
vanced to permit them to cron*. All ex
pensed great surprise at the depth of
anew encountered at Ibis season of the
year. Old herders who had been in there
during the past twelve and fourteen sea
son, state that they could nut remember
so Iste a season, it being fully six week*
lster than the average. I passed several
big bands of sheep, about 78,900. head in
all being encountered. These figure* af

heading fort he au miner grazing grounds."

Senator John L. Wilson is home from
Washington and gives tho following list
of the direct appropriations for this state
made by congress:
One hundred thousand dollars for the
Spokane military post; an appropiation
of $10,000 to treat with the Yakima In
dian* for the cession of a portion of their
reservation, the same commission to also
treat with Indian tribe* in Dakota and
Montana; $ltKl.) for the final estimate and
survey for the iui[ rovement of the Oka
nogan river; $20,000 for Ihe upper Snake
and Columbia; $00,000 lor the removal of
the bar in the Columbia river, near the
city of Vancouver; $35,000 to continue
the improvement at Olympia; $25,000 to
continue improvement at Snohomish
slough ; $75,1100 for the improvement ol
tributary streams of Puget Sound. Of
this Bum $15,000 will be expended in ttie
improvement of the snaglioat and proba
bly $25,000 for the removal of llie big jam
at the mouth of tbe Skagit river; $150,
--000 for the Lake Washington waterway.
The bar at the mouth ol (iray's harbor
wa* placed under the contract system and
the secretary of war was authorized to
let a contract for it* improvement, Ihe to
tal cost of said improvement not to ex
ceed $1,000,000. Quite a number of other
streams were ordered surveyed, looking
to their ultimate improvement, the most
important being at New Whatcom, where
it is hoped eventually to have the same
character of improvement as is now in
progress at Olympia. One hundred and
ten thousand dollars was appropriated for
buildings and officers' quarters at Port
Orchard dry dock ; also $10,000 reappro
priated and $10,000 additional for the
survey of the Colville Indian reservation.

It is proposed to change the basis of
representation in the national republican
convention, and give each state four dele
gates at *large aud one additional dele
gate for each 7000 votes or a majority
fraction thereof cast in each stale for the
election of the republican electoral ticket
at the last precedingelection. This would
make many very important change* in
the make-up of tbe convention. If based
upon tbe votes cast in 1894 New York
would have KM delegates instead of 77,
as now; Pennsylvania 91, instead of 04;
Illinois 73, instead of AS; Washington 22,
instead of 8; Oregon 14, instead of 8;
Texas 25, instead of 30; Louisiana
14, instead of 10; Ueorgia 19, in
stead of 02 —in fact, nearly every
Southern state would lose and nearly ev
ery Northern state gain. Uuder such an
apportionment California would have
only two more delegates than Washing
ton, instead of ten more, ns at present.

Pope I,eo X once honored his banker,
Don Agostino Ch;gi, with his presence at
a banquet at the latter* palace on the
Tiber. At the termination of the feast
Don Agostino flung the whole of the su
perb aald service used into the Tiber, de
claring that he watt determined that plate
thus sanctified by the use'of his holiness
should never be used again. The pon
tiff was greatly impressed by this com
pliment, and remained until his death,
shortly atterward in happy ighorance of
the fact that Don Agostino Jiad taken the
precantion to place a net can-fully con
cealed from visw beneath the surface of
the water, bo that after the departure of
the holy father from the palace he exper
ienced no difficulty whatsoever in recov
ering possession of his gold plate.

Spokane Spokesman-Ret inc.- Every
banker in the city yesterday received a
circular from Harvey Fi.ik A Sons of New
York, dealt re in government bonds, ask
ing them to see personally, write or tele
graph all the delegates from this state lo
the St. Louis convention, urging them to
adopt an unequivocal utterance in favor
of maintaining the existing gold stand
ard. A platform like this, the bankers'
circular goes on to say, will restore confi
dence st home and abroad, give new life
to prostrate industries and start the na
tion on a career of solid prosperity. It is
said that the same effort* are being made
to democrats and republicans alike to in
fluence their delegates.
Kir Jehu's Advice.
Sir John McDonald, when premier of
Canada, drank too much wine at a ban
quet and made a wandering speech, which
an indiscreet Btenographer took in full.
"Tear that up!" said ihe premier terse
ly, when the manuscript was shown him
for revision. Then he added i "Now I
will tell you what I did s»y," and he
composed an excellent address.
"Yonng man," he observed etertilv, as
the Btenographer was itoitu'. "let me give
you some advice; never try to report a
statesman when you're drunk!"

and frozen th» same as water ice, uiaah

surrounding liquid will be quite soft. If
canned truits are used only half the quan
tity of *ugar given in the recipe* for fresh
fruits will be required.

At every meal, if possible there shonld
be some fresh greens on the table; at
breakfast, watercress, or white leaves of
lettuce, which are delicious sprinkled
with salt, and eaten from the fingers; at
luncheon, lettuce again, sliced tomatoes
or any fresh vegetable in season.
Fruits should be eaten unsparringly as
tbey come in season, as Dame Nature
has ordained that Ihey shall supply just
the ingredient lacking in the system at
their timely coming; oranges, grape fruit
or strawberries, eaten at breakfast, give
just the needed tone to the stomach;
stewed fruit, and particularly rhubarb
just at present should be eaten at lunch
eon ; and at dinner, instead of the rich
pastry or sweet, fruit may be substituted.
Apples, too, are especially wholesome and
may be freely eaten at bed time with
much advantage to the complexion. Ab
we grow uhler we seem to outgrow all our
simpler tastes—the love of fruit is one ol
these —hut the woman who values a good
skin should make it au inviolate rule that
no single day should pass without the
consumption of a certain amount of fresh
or stewed fruit.

A lump of bread about the size of a bil
liard hall, tied up in a linen bag and
placed iv the pot in which greens are
boiling, will absorb the gases which of
tentimes eend such an unpleasant odor to

A doctor recommends soda—the bicar
bonate used in cooking—as a deutrifice.
It has been adopted for occasional trial,
and with apparent good results, as it
sweetens the month and cleanses the
teeth. Hut it seems too extreme a treat
ment to oiler to what is-really a sensitive
part of the bad*, and should be ><«ed
with considerable discretion.
Most of the white and colored linen
duck suits arc made with full gored skirt

of soap, for it is very cleansing and bene

An autograph sofa cushion is made by
having one* friend* write with a pencil
their names in l»rge open hand upon a

«■«r<- far in, 1 Teeth.
At least once in two weeks the teeth
should be thoroughly cleansed by a rub-j
bing process. To do this dip a smal
hickory stick, which must be softened at
the end, into chalk or ground pumice
stone, and rub over the entire surface of
the teeth, particularly the inside and up
per portion of the large molars, where
there is usually a deposit from the vari
ous secretions of the mouth.
Dental floes should be used to remove
all particles of food; the use of the tooth
pick is not only an offense against good
taste, but is also injurious, as it loosens
the filling* of the teeth and bruise* the
gum* as well.
Charcoal is invaluable as a dentifrice.
It whitens the teeth snd removes any un
pleasant taste of a disordered stomach.

Shakespeare, it would seem, must have
known something about bicycles, for
throughout his plays he makes frequent
reference to the wheel,says the Washing

beginner* on the wheel were plenty, for
hi* ghost said: "What a falling oil' was
This most excellent description is par
allelled by another in the same play, in
which reference is made to an accident,
the new woman of the early sixteenth
century being evidently the greatest suf

those days, and owner* had to caret
guard their precious wheels. In "'lng

"We, too, my lord, 33

And watch your safety."

There is no doubt that Achilles, in
"Troilus and Cresßtda," traveled on a
bicycle, for be says to his myrmidons:
"Attend me while I wheel."
It is safe to assume (fiat, aa 10-day the
the wheel is a never ending source of con
versation, so it was in the time of Titus
Andronicus, though the listener was
more patient then. Aaron says to De
"Now talk at pleasure of your safety."
It appear* from a quotation made by
the king in "All's Well Tnat Knds Well"
tbat the law required lamps to be carried
at night, and that a violation of it was
followed by death. He says:
"Let me live after my flame lacks oil."
Chains were not noiseless, and bells
were used in the days of the "Comedy of
Errors" as shown by a conversation be
tween the Dromio ot and Adri
ans, which runs thus:
"A chain, a chain, do you bear it?
What, the chain?
No, no; the bell.
Tbe availability of wheels in dangerous
service is illustrated iv "Coriolanus,"
when the winded messenger says toCom
"Spies of the Yolsces

Half an hour Bince brought my report."
The tire of which Shakespeare wrote
was evidently filled hair, instead of air,
and even its color wm of importance. In
"Much Ado About Nothing," Margaret
"I like the new tire within excellently,
if the hair were a thought browner."
Puck's prophetic remark about placing
a girdle around the world in forty minutes
is fully '. .iiialled by that of Launce, in
"The Two Gentlemen of Verona," when
"Then I msy set tbe world on wheels."
Surely this prophecy has been fulfilled.
