"The last eleven months of the Mc

of revenue. The first eleven months
of th present tariff brought in $146,

Eastern Manufacturers have ad
vanced the price of shoes because of
the advance in leather, and leather
has advanced because its production
is regulated by a trust which con
trols about 80 per cent of all the
tanneries in the eountrv and has a
capital stock of 120.000,000. The
trust ascribes the advance in leather
to the higher price of hides caused
by the scarcity of cattle, but the gen
eral judgment, holds an exchange,
is that it is due less to this cause
than to the trust's greed.
The Vo opalar Yacht Decision.
The decision of the regatta com
mittee of the New York Yacht club,
which awarded the second heat in
the America Cup Race to the De
fender on a foul, is likely to prove
an unpopular one, no matter what
the merits of the case, or how even
handed the justico it dispensed.
Tho spirit shown by the English
press when the Valkyrie won is"now
reflected by the American press.
The spirit was a generous one in
which the London Chronicle said:
We eannot consider it a clear win,
and it will be open to the Americans
to say that it was not a fair win,
and we are sure that Lord Dunraven
would rather sail it over again than
to have that believed by the western
werld. Line for line, despite the
accident. Defender showed herself
to be the faster boat." Americans
are loath to be outdone in generosity
or in anything else by the English.
America is convinced that she has
the faster vacht, and she would
rather have demonstrated this fact by
sailing than bv parliamentary tactics.
C. Oliver Iieliu struck the popular
chord when he offered to resail the
second heat, which was awarded his
boat on a foul.
Eil ward Bok, the editor of the
Ladies1 Home Journal, has written a

phases ef a young man's life: his
business life.'social life, his amuse

of his marriage. This is Mr. Bok's
The Reviews of Reviews for Sep
tember calls attention to the change
in European sentiment on the liquor
question, as shown especially in the
establishment of the French monop
oly of the manufacture aud whole
sale supply of strong liquors, in the
work of the Belgian commission, and
in the still more important action
by Russia in setting up a govern
ment monopoly of the entire whole
sale and retail traffic in liquors
throughout the empire.
In a most thoughtful and eloquent
article on "The African Problem,"
Dr. Edward W. Blvden, librarian
minister to the court of St. James,
in the September North American
Review, shows why in his opinion
the time has not come for an exten
sive colonization of mcrican
negroes in Africa. Hon. James II.

Stories of war are always attrac
tive. Whether of battles on land or
sea, they are of interest. More than
this. They are thrilling. And
when the story is told by one who
was there for be it remembered that
many war storias are told by those
who were not its value at an object
lesson is enhanced. In "The Last
Fight of a Gallant Ship," by James
W. Kessler, a survivor of the U. S.
ship of war, Mississippi, which ap
pears in Home and Country, New
York, for September, there is inspira
tion for American youth and patri
otic men and women everywhere.
And the story told is true, as it pays
a fitting tribute to the American
sailor of the war period.
Freemasonry in Boston is a subject
which will receive very much atten
tion at this time. Of the early his
tory of Masonry in America most
people outside the craft know little
enough. In Boston, in the days of
the revolution, Hancock, Warren and
Kcvcre, like so many less famous
patriots, were zealous Masons, and
their lodges were often centers of
active agitation. From that time to
this Masonry in Boston has had a re
markable history and has num be red
in its ranks many remarkable men.
The history has "never been so well
told as by Warren B. Ellis in the fully
illustrated article in the September
number of the New England Maga
zine. The article will interest the
general public almost as much as it
interests the brethren.
Fiction and travel are the strong
points in the September Cosmopoli
tan, which, bv the wav, illustrates
better than any previous number the
perlection ol its plant for printing a
magazine of the highest class.
Conan Doyle, II. H. Boyesen and
Clark Russell are among the story
tellers. A well known New York
lawyer relates the story of "A Fa
mous Crime" the murder of Dr.
Parkman.by Professor Webster. A
ueugntiul scetch or "An Knglish
Country House Party" is from the
pen of Mna Larre-bniith the house
at which she visited being no less
than the historic Abbotsford, still oc
cupied by the direct descendants of
Sir alter Scott, and it may be said
that no more beautifully illustrated
number of The Cosmopolitan has
ever been given to the public.
Mrs. Phoebo Thomas, of Junction
City, 111., was told by her doctors
she had consumption and that there
was no hope for her, but two bottles
of Dr. King's New Discovery com
pletely cured, her and she says it
saved her life. Thomas Eggers, 139
Florida street, San Francisco, suf
fured from a dreadful cold, approach
ing consumption, tried without re.
suit everything else, then bought
one bottle of Dr. King's New Discov
ery and in two weeks was cured.
He is naturally thankful. It is such
results, of which these are samples,
that prove the wonderful efficacy of
this medicine in eoughs and colds.

THE ROMANCE OF THE TELEGRAPH.
of the Odd EMacnltlea or Operating
a Llaa Through. Queer Coutriea.
A good deal of roinanceliovers aronud
the means by which the world's news is
gathered. The speed and accuracy with
which telegraph messages are trans
mitted between the uttermost parts of
the earth is marvelous when the condi
tions under which they ore fometimes
transmitted are considered.
The Indo-European telegraph line
offers a good illustration. It rmis from
Loudon to Lowestoft on tho east coast
ef England. It then dips under the sea
to Emden, on the German coat, whence
it pasces through Germany to the Rus
sian frontier. From this point the wire
passes by way of Warsaw, Rowno, Odes
sa, the Caucasus, and Tiflis to Persia.and
by Tauris to Teheran, the capital of the
shah's queer domain. There it joins
the Indian government line which" runs
from the Persian capital to Bushire on
the Persian gulf. Thence the wires run
through Baluchistan, and complete tho
route by connecting at Karachi, in
northern India. Tho operation of this
immense stretch of line, p;iiu;; through
countries of such varying climates and
general characteristics, is obviously one
of much difficulty. On the mow
swept steppes of Russia the wires are
sometimes snapped like thread by the
rapid flight of flocks ef wild geese. The
poles are cut down aud made into fire
wood by the nomad tribes of tho Cau
casian districts, and tho cunning inn
keepers of Georgia seek to boom their
post horse trade by deliberately creating
faults in the wires. In certain parts of
tho mountainous regions of Asia tho
maintenance of the solitary lino involves
no little personal risk and linrd.-hip" to
the stall hands. Communication is
often cut off liy avalanches iu tho moun

no light matter.
