The Milwaukee Sentinel ia politely
bat firmly opposing the appointment
of Mr. Paynu to the cabinet on the
srround that he "has been in the
habit, while a member of the republi
can national committee, to exert an
iuiluence in behalf of corporations
over member of legislative bodies."
Who would have supposed it!
Ex-President Harrison gives it
out that he would not tor a moment
think tf accepting a seat in the
United'Siates senate. This i9 strange.
especially in view of the fact that it
is admitted by the nearest friends of
the general that he still has his eve
on the executive mansion, and that
according to current report he is be
ginning life over again. It will be
recalled that Gen. Harrison's first
stepping stone to political distinction
was tne mttea states senate.
When the senate meets a week
hence it will liad on the calendar
enough business to keep it busy till
the adjournment on the 4th of
March without touching the appro
priation bills. Ul .course a great
deal of it will go into limbo on that
date, some of it to be revived and re
introduced in the next congress.
Among the unfinUhed business in
the senate is the house bill to amend
tho immigration laws, the Dingley
bill to make a horizontal rise in the
tariff, and the joint resolution look
ing to an amendment of the consti
tntion providing for the election of
senator by the people. The bill to
prevent the extermination cf fur
hearing seals is also pending. Then
there is Senator Squires1 bill provid
ing for fortifications and appropriat
ing f iuu.uuu.uuu lor fierense. Sena
tor Dvi8 has a severe concurrent
resolution asserting the Monroe doc
trine, and in view of the recent dip
lomatic defeat of the United States
in the Venezuelan matter there may
he a long and hot discussion. The
question of statehood for Arizona
and New Mexico, revision of the nav
ration laws, bankruptcy, Pacific
railway fuudirg, Hawaiian relations,
and other important matters will
press themselves on the attention of
senators. And who can tell what
lot of business the Cuban question
Mr. Bryan's Wlah.
In one of the three speeches which
ho delivered in Denver Tuesdav last
Mr. Bryan expressed the with that
bimetallists would not identify his
name with their clnbs. He said that
in 1900 the free coinage hosts might
choose another standard bearer, and
that in any event the principle a
stake was so great that it ought not
to be dwarfed or jeopardized by link
mg it with the personality of any
ranu. air. Bryan a suggestion
another proof of his modesty, unself
ishness and wisdom, it 19 probabl
that his defire will be gratified
bat while dropping his name from
the title of their organizations, the
binietallists will continue to regard
him with respect and affection, and
is tho man who Bhould receive their
Miff rages in 1900. No other person
not even tho honest and patriotic
Teller, could nave united the reform
elements as he did in the recent
campaign; and there are pood rea
sons for the belief that he will be the
binary point of contact four years
Hence as he has been in 1896. Bryan
is great in soul and intellect; and be
cause his conscience and heart and
mind are right, be will grow in pop
ular favor and political influence as
he grows in years.

It's a man's bad habits that hart
him more than overwork. The little
habits of coffee and tobacco harts
worse than some of the big ones, be
cause they are continued more
steadily than the greater habits.
Many a man is simply poisoned to
death by the alkaloids of coffee and
tobacco ana never win oeiieve wnat
is hurting him. Let him quit to
bacco and - use Postnm Cereal food
drink, in place of coffee ' and very
soon he finds that nature, the great
restorer, is at work. No medicine is
needed.simply quit doing those things
which poison and waste the energy,
and let nature build into body and
brain from good food. Postnm ie

Use plain, common food and

but is not). Health will come and

than when patched up with drugs.

"Just as good" as Postnm Cereal
are the words used to defraud the
Life Id Ortrl title.
And as to the tendency cf tiie growth
great cities to enervate nations, there
m no proof cf it Kt all unless we identi
fy the lifa of great cities with the pas
sion fcr idleness and pleasure end self
indulgence, which sometimes, bnt by
no means universally, accompanies their
growth. When you get a large prol
etariat living, as that of ancient Rome
and possibly of Kiueveh and Babylon
did, on the alms of the rich and power
ful, then no donbt you have the condi
tions of a thoroughly unnatural and an-
healthful life, and 110 one can wonder at
the rapid decay of such cities and of
the nations which gloried in them. But
where tho honest working class far out
number -the proletariat, where the mid
dle classes of distributers and manufac
turers and professional men are labo
rious mid energetic, and even the class
that lives on its accumulated wealth
contains a considerable sprinkling of
serious and disinterested workers, we
do net believe that there is the smallest
evidence of any greater danger in the
life of thn agricultural village or tho
pastoral tri be. Indeed, we shoo Id regard
Olive Schreiner's picture of the life of
the modern Boers as indicating a condi
tion of things more prolific of morbid
f leiaent:--, with its almost complete ab
sence cf any stirring or active intelli
gence, than any kind of modern life
that is honestly laborious at all. The
Boer lifo is too sleepy, too destitute of
stirring thonpht or effort, to be alto
gether natural. It needs at least the old
element of danger and necessary vigi
lance to render it even bracing. Lon
Contributors to Magazines.
Ono contributor states that he is a
gentleman" wishing to go abroad on
a historical and antiquarian tonr
through Normandy, the only difficulty
being that he has not sufficient means
to accomplish his object. Ho therefore
requests my father to send him 12 at
once, and he, the writer, will immedi
ttcly start and contribute gratuitously.
he says, to The Cornhill an account of
his journey. He trusts that if my father
cannot do this he will make some other
arrangement. The contributor thinks of
going by Kouen, Caen, Bayeux, St, Mi
chel and returning by Tours and Or
leans. "You will perceive," he says,
"that this is an original tour and con
tains many interesting points."
Honored and admired sir," writes
another in Johnsonian language from
the depths cf tho country, "in tlio writ
er of this letter yoa would behold the
unlucky, unfortunate and unworthy
contributor of scuie poetical subjects to
your influential and extensive Cornhill
Magazine, Indued, I have but received
a day cr two ago such a piece returned,
I now try my hand at prose and send
yon a paper for the May number of the
magazine." (The letter is dated March
27, and the editor and printers would
have to bestir themselves.) "If the
manuscript is returned," says the au
thor, "I will send thepostago necessary.
May such a contingency be far off."

When banter in the old -days lost
all his bullets or hadn't any to snoot

at game or Indians, as the ce te might

powder, a belt fall of gold miggetv A
fine rifle and a bnllet mold. It was on
the too of a knoll where bis soe cabin
had been built, and he had afcarreLof
water and a tot of wood for emergen
cies. The Indians kept iuet ont of
range, dashing in once in awhile to
draw his fire. He soon nsed bis bullets
op and then nsed the gold. . He Sred
nearly half his fortune at the redskins
before they left him.
Many a hunter has nsed a pebble in
the hope of getting a clow deadly- shot.
Jackknives and ramrods have served
their time as missiles. Forest and
Stream tells about a hunter who had
only a single ballet, but lotsof powder.
The bullet shot the horn of a big back
off, and the buck charged the man, who
took to a tree top. He spent half an
hour whittling off two inch lengths of
branches and putting them into his rifle.
Then he rammed them down on tho
powder and fired at the maddened deer.
His partner came a.'ong o?ter awhile
with a belt full of bullets and, mak
ing a ran for the tree, gave a ballet to
the shooter, who quickly killed the
deer.- New York Sun.
