has bung out bis shingle in Wichita,
and will hereafter practice his pro

reads as follows: "J... D. Lewelling

Pexxstlvaxia is preparing for a
revolt against the bonk trust. It
has been found that Pittsburg pays
!io rents for an algebra which costs
McKeesport fl and Bellcfonte 93
rents; that Bellefonte pays 03 cents
for a geometry which costs $1.0-r in
Pittsburg and'Allcghcny City, f 1.13
in McKeesport and !8 cents in
Brownsville. The same geography
costs 1. 5D in Allegheny, $1 in Oil

Willianisport pays 43 cents for a
grammar, which costs 5 cents in
Allegheny. Almost every large city
in the country has experienced simi

Secretary Ilinrlrhnen'a Krport.
The annual report of Hon. William
Jl. Hinrichsen, secretary of state, is
one of the most complete ever
prepared by any state official
in the state of Illinois, and
goes into each subject and depart
ment in minutest detail. The work
ings of the different departments un
der the secretary are given at length,
work shown, together with compar
isons of former secretaries.
Being the custodian of the state
house, the secretary of state, as an
exchange wt-H say's, probably has
more burdens than all tbe balance
placed together. Heating, lighting,
ventilation, service, furniture, fix
tures, and a thousand minor detail."
are daily laid before Mr. Hinrichsen.
The recommendations contained in
the report, if carried out, would place
the management of th-i state capitol
building in a position equaled by
none on the face of the globe. Mr.
Hinriehscn's ideas aro up to date and
include self-ownership of light, heat
and power for the big rock building.
In selecting his clerical force, Mr.
Hinrichsen has chosen a set of clerk
that have gotten out more work in
less time than was ever witnessed in
any state house west of the Alleghe
nies. The trust department alone
showed how well did the secretary
understand his business in the able
manner in which he managed to have
close connection with many thousand
corporations in the state "of Illinois,
anil he received some kind of a re
port from every one of them. All
the work has been carried out under
the special management of Mr. Hin
richsen himself; he personally sees
that all work is done and done right.
Under the heading, "The Woman
Who Most Influenced Me," in the
Ladies1 Home Journal, Bob'1 Bur
dctte writes a very touching story of
the influence exerted over him by bis
invalid wife. It is not only a literary
gem, bnt is a just tribute to the lit
tle woman who made the great hu
morist and writer all that he now is.
Herr Wilhclm Liebknect, leader of

Gen. Lord Wolseley makes a most
important contribution to the litera
ture of the China-Japan war. In an
article for the February Cosmopoli
tan, he discusses the situation and
does not mince matters in saying
what China must do in this emer
gency. Two other noted foreign au
thors contribute interesting articles
to this number. Rosita Mauri, the
famous Parisian danseuse, gives the
history of the ballet, and F.mile Olli
vier tells the story of the fall of Louia
Philippe. From every part of the
world, drawings and photographs
hare been obtained of the instru

clever article, by Julian Hawthorre,
entitled. 'Salvation via the Rack."

WEBSTER'S SMALL FEES.

One of onr correspondents has been so
lucky as to fall in with a little leathet
covered book, like those of bank deposit
ors, which contains Daniel Webster's
autograph record cf his legal receipts.
This chronicle fills 28 pages and extends
a little more than from 1833 to 1836 in
clusive. Tbe first entry, dated Septem
ber in the former year, is of (50, and
the second of $20, for retaining on the
Kew Hampshire circuit. The first fee of
f 1.000 was paid in May, 1834, by a Mr.
Kadger. Services regarding Cilley'a will
commanded $800. Tho total amount for
the firet year was ftioted up as $13,140,
V. itli (he remark, "Sfpt 22, 1S31, thus
done and concluded.
A HiTiiliirHnniniiiig up appears at the
closo of each utile year. The second
total M fl5.lW.74; the third is $31,
793. The first entry of f 2, 000 was in
1835, March 7; the lir.st of $ 3,000 Dec,
7 in the same year. The last payment
was in respect to Florida land. The
larpest siuglo honorarium was $7,500.
I'.i February of the fourtli year $5,000 is
set down as bestowed in a case of Trinity
church. New York.
In turning over this record leading
metropolitan and even provincial law
yers are astonished that Webster, al
though 20 years in Boston, so under
valued his services. Ho learned better
at last When Robert C. Winthrop
looked at tho earliest date, he said,
"That's just the time that I was ending
my studies in Welder's office, " and tho
chirography led him to add that Web
ster never wrote a firm hand. Nobody
purveyed the relic with more interest
than Dr. O. W. Holmes. Among other
things bo said: "Ilad the influx been
tenfold, WtbsttT's pur.e would have re
mained empty still. Hud its capacity
received like the sea, whatever entered

Mirrors are usually silvered by coat
ing the glass with amalgam. For this
purpose a large, perfectly fiat stone is
provided, and upon it is evenly spread a
sheet of tin foil without crack or flaw.
This is covered to the depth of one
eighth of an inch with clean mercury.
lhe plato of glass, perfectly cleaned
from all grease and impurity, is floated
on to the mercury by sliding, so as to
exclude all air bubbles. It is then
pressed down by loading it with
weights, in order to press ont all the
mercury which remains fluid. This is
received in a gutter around the stone.
After about 24 hours it is gently raised
upon its edge, and in a few weeks it is
ready to frame. Family Journal.

"Hardly a week passes," said the
mana.T of an up town J nrkish bath
establishment, the doors of which are
never cluced, "that we aro not called
upon to certify to tho fact that some
gentleman lias passed the night with
us. The all night business is to a fcreat
extent made up from gentlemen who
have drank a little more than is good
for them. They do not want to go home
in that condition and are anxious to be
all right in the morning.
"They come in here, take a sweat, a
shampoo, a plunge and a rubdown and
are then prepared for a refreshing sleep,
awakening in the morning little the
worse for the indiscretion of the early
evening before. That tho explanation of
their whereabouts is not satisfactory to
wives or parents in many instances I
judge from the frequency of application
for proof of the same.
".Not long binee a lawyer's clerk went
over tho register of onr patrons for a pe
riod of two years, and, fortunately per
haps fur the gentleman in whose inter
est tho research was made, found his
autograph (written qnite frequently in
a very unsteady hand) over 50 times in
that period. I have since heard that
this proof prevented the filing of a di

Coarse and red hands may bo whiten
ed by using a few grains of chloride of
lime added to warm soft water for
washing. All rings and bracelets must
be removed before this is used, as tho
chloride of lime will tarnish them. A
soap containing this ingredient may be
prepared as follows: White powdered
castilo eoap, 1 pound; dry chloride of
lime, 12 to 2 ounces. Mix and beat
this up in a mortar to a soft mass with
a sufficient quantity of rectified spirit.
Divide tho mass into tablets and wrap
it up in oil silk. It may be scented by
adding to the mixture a couplo of drams
of oil of verbena. In using chloride of
lime it is very important to be careful
to avoid getting any of the powder into
the eyes, as it is exceedingly irritating
and may even cause blindness. Popu
