The greatest sensation in Chicago
since the assassination of Mayor Har
rison occurred yesterday, when Capt.
Anson's ball playera won a game.
New York Daily America: Dur
ing his visit here Mr. Harrison has
seen aliont everybody who controls
republican votes, from Tom Plait
down to Jake Patterson, but it is al
together too early to tell what the
harvest will bo.
Gov. Altoeld vcrv sensibly de
clined to order the militia to Staun
ton at the hysterical request of a
sheriff who had become rattled"
without any perceptible occasion!
Civil processes ahould be cxhaused
in the execution of the law, before
the militia is called upon.
. The democratic congressional con
vention for the Sixteenth district,
which had been in session since
Tuesday at Jacksonville, nominated
Finis . Itowning, of t'as county.
The nomination is equivalent to an
election, as every county in the dis
trict ia democratic, and the total
majority Is alrout five thousand.
Ex-Representative J. E. Buch,
and Capt. W. II. Uiickner, of Chica
go, f prominent colored politicians
were in Springfield this week to aee
liov. Altgeld for the purpose of se
curing an order for the mustering
into the service of the Illinois Na
tionul Guard, the Ninth battalion of
Chicago, colored. The organization
numbers 225 colored men. Gov. Alt
geld had gone to Chicago, but Adjt.
ien. Orendorff received the repre
sentatives very kindly. He told
them, however, that as there was no
vacancy in the guard, and the quota
being full, he would be obliged to
refuse their request, at this time.
A Popilist petition, bearing the
names of a large number of voters in
Jefferson. Hamilton and White coun
ties, which it is alleged was the
Fortv-sixth senatorial district, nam
ing VV. C. Blair as a candidate for
the general assembly, was presented
to the secretary of 'state yesterday.
. asking him to certify Mr. Blair to
Illinois county clerks, 'as a bonalide
candidate for the house of represen
tatives. The secretary declined to
receive the petition or file the same,
saying that the appointment act
passed by the Thirty-eighth general
assembly repealed all former ap
pointment laws, and is tho only op
erative act on the statute books, and
in that act he could find no district
as described by petitions. 1
New Yokk Times: There is a sug
gestion of Nemesis in the violent pro
ceedings of the striking Hungarians
in the coke regions of Pennsylvania.
This class of workmen were brought
over to this country years ago under
labor contracts, without understand
ing the conditions In which they
were to find themselves. Kates of
wages which seemed to them won
derfully high were really low for
this country and for the work tbey
had to do, and these Hungarians
were nsed to displace workmen who
would have to be paid higher wages,
that the profits of the employers
might be increased. It was the im
portation of these men chiefly that
led to the prohibition of contracting
for foreign laborers, but they have
learned to be dissatisfied with their
wages and the conditions of their
employment, and have come to be
among the readiest and least reason
able of strikers. They are just now
showing that in labor contests they
are a turbulent and lawless element
which is liable to terrorize the region
in whteh it breaks loose, and is amen
able only to superior force. The
wild Hungarians are inflicting pen
alties upon the greed that brought
them over here.
History Repoatlaft- Itsoir.
Gest and his following seem deter
mined to precipitate just such a tur
moil in the political affairs of this
congressional district as they did in
182. It will be remembered that
the bitterness of feeling between the
Marsh and McClaughry factions of
the party in the first struggle of the
old Eleventh district, was intensified
by the part Mr. Gest and his Rock
Island supporters took in the contro
versy. The contest had originally
been merely in the Marsh and Mc
Claughry contingents, but the Gest
crowd went down to the convention
and split np the delegation in
Marsh's own county of Hancock, ac
complishing nothing by the transac
tion, but the creation of discord, for
Marsh got the nomination, neverthe
less, by the skin of his teeth, and
then was slaughtered at the polls.
The bitterness engendered by the
Gest forces was felt in the election
that followed, and in subsequent
elections, and party harmony in the
district which was 'mapped o'ut to he
safely republican, was not fully re
stored while the district was in ex
istence. The antagonism caused then by
the Gest men was unnecessary. It
was simply a aperies of selfishness
and eagerness on (rest's part that led
his men to make the same mistakes
in his behalf that they are going to
make now. At that time the nomi
nation reasonably belonged to the
lower end, and Gest's course was not
good politics, as the more conserva
tive republicans then counseled giv.
ing the lower end the nomination for
a couple of terms, and then striving
for it for Rock Island later.
The same republicans are caution
ing the same course now, but the
same Gest is on hand in the same
spirit that he was 12 years ago.
A Mas Steeping In tho Straw.
A well dressed man leaning against a
lamppost and apparently sleeping the
sleep of the jnst created a great deal of
interest in a busy London street the
other day. He sat on a box which he
bad been carrying.
Evidently, being suddenly overcome
with drowsiness, be had placed the box
on the curbstone, and sitting down upon
it had fallen asleep. To those who suc
ceeded in getting close enough to the
man his gentle, restful snore dispelled
the fear that he might be dead. The
side of bis face was exposed and be
trayed no sign of intoxication. It was
the judgment of every one that he was
sober, in good health and simply taking
When the crowd became so deep as to
threaten a blockade, the supposed sleeper
suddenly jumped to his feet, mounted
his box. and flourishing a couple of bot
tles over his head exclaimed:
"Now, gents, serin that yon are all
here, I rise to a question of privilege,
and after thankin yon for this most cor
dial reception, which I assure you will
long remain npon the tablets of my
memory, I wish to call your attention to
my world renowned corn and bunion
Boast la wf tit Schoolboy.
Habits are contracted and characters
formed early in life, and it is probable
that the color of a person's reading is
mainly determined during the time of
hobbledehoydom, when he ia in process
of passing from the limp and lanky
schoolboy to the set and rigid man. Just
at this timo is a most critical period in
his career, for now it is that be obtains
new outlook into Ufa Previously he
baa been concerned with the miniature
world of school and looked at the great
er world only with the eyes of a school
boy. But now, entering a business or a
profession, he enters into a larger life and
begins to look about him with an air of
deeper inquiry. And the more he reads
of contemporary literature the worse
does he become, for the air is thick with
controversy. Nothing is too sacred to
be contradicted, and the spirit of "sweet
reoxonablenesB" seems to be dead.
TfwaTody of IJtermry Dleappolataeont.
An English periodical says disappoint
ment in authorship over there sometimes
has tragic results. Recently a gentle
man committed suicide because be had
had an article rejected, and a confec
tioner's assistant shot himself because,
though be had written several books,
they were all rejected. The article goes
on sagely: "Yet he went on writing to
the hist, unable to see that he was pro
ducing what was not wanted. Nowa
days there is a market for what is good
in any class of literature, and the writer
who cannot secure a publisher may rest
assured either that he is not ready for a
public appearance, or that he has been
denied the gifts with which he fancies
himself to be endowed."

The bright young man who isn't so

to secure a scat right in the midst of
Deacon Huggum's young ladies' Bible
class and by their arch manners was so
far decoyed from his usual staid indiffer
ence as to try and make himself agreea
ble. The speaker of the evening pleaded
most earnestly the cause of sweet chari
ty and made the last remaining quarter
and nickel burn in the scribe's pocket.
When the deadly contribution box be
gan its gyrations in bis isle, the news
paper representative began to chuckle
under the mellowing influence of a hap
py thought He would execute a neat
little piece of legerdemain with that
quarter and 5 cent piece, and while
properly impressing his fair neighbors
with the larger coin would really drop
in the smaller.
He held the quarter daintily between
his thumb and finger and pressed the
5-cent piece between his third finger and
his palm. There was a click of a coin
in the bottom of the box, a rather un
usual twist of a large cuff and a bland
smile on the reporter's face.
A second later the young man started
as if he had been shot and turned ex
citedly toward the deacon, who was now
two seats behind him.
Ho had dropped in the quarter!
The deacon mistook the gesture as a
sign that the young man had been over
looked, and again he thrust the box un
der the reporter's nose.
What did be do?
Just what you would.
He put in the nickej.
And walked home. Boston Herald.
Cariosities of Glycerin.
One of the great advantages of glycer
in in its chemical employment is the
fact that it neither freezes nor evaporates
under any ordinary temperature. No
perceptible loss by evaporation has been
detected at a temperature less than 200
degrees F., but if boated intensely
it decomposes with a smell that few
persons find themselves able to endure.
It burns with a pale flame, similar to
that from alcohol, if heated to about
800 degrees and then ignited. Its non
evaporative qualities make the com
pound of much use as a vehicle for hold
ing pigments and colors, as in stamping
and typewriter ribbons, carbon papers
and the like.
II the pure glycerine do exposed ror a
long time to a freezing temperature, it
crystallizes with the appearance of sugar
candy, but these crystals being once
melted it is almost nn impossibility to
get them again into the congealed state.
If a little water be added to the glycer
in, no crystallization will take place,
though under a sufficient degree of cold
the water will separate and form crys
tals, amid which the glycerin will re
main in its natural state of fluidity. If
suddenly subjected to intense cold, pure
glycerin will form a gummy mass
which cannot be entirely hardened or
crystallized. Altogether it is quite a
peculiar substance. Good Housekeep

"We do indeed have some queer ex
periences," said the trained nurse, tak
ing off her white cap and giving its
dainty bow a few deft, reconstructing
touches, "and many interesting and di
verting episodes also. Not long ago I
was sent for to attend a minister's wife
and must confess that I responded to
the call with some trepidation and ap
prehension. It was my first experience
in a minister's family, and I was afraid
that my patient might ask me to pray
with her or read the Bible to her, which
moat excellent offices would be wholly
out of my line and would cause me
"When I reached my post of duty, I
found tho minister's wife suffering a
great deal, and my first office was to
make and apply a mustard plaster. I
concocted it with a generous and con
scientious hand, and it must have been
pretty warm, for several seconds after I
had deferentially applied the mustard
plaster on the person of the minister's
wife she groaned dismally. Leaning
over her to discover whether her pain
had increased, I heard her murmur softly
" Oh, jiminy! It's too hot! I can't
"Perhaps yon con imagine how my
heart leaped toward the dear woman at
this touch of nature. We had a delight
ful time together when she got better.
She was a good woman, too, but like the
rest of us she bad her favorite ejacula
tions under compelling circumstances."

Pretty Told Weather.
Two boatmen on the Ohio river were
talking about cold weather and of a cer
tain severe winter. "It was just awful,"
said one of them. "At Cincinnati the
river was froze tight, and the thermom

"Below Cairo, you blubberbead! Yon

pretty cold, so they say so many degrees
But light was bursting in upon the
