Foraker objects, and Gov. Bnsbnell
says he is considering the appoint
ment of a laboring man. That is the
old scape goat racket, bat in all can
'dor, however, who has worked
harder than Mr. Hanna for the sue
cess of the McKinleyites?
It is new believed that there will
be en extra eettion of congress. The
purpose will be to make a" new tariff
for bouoties aid give more protec
tion to trusts. The trusts have been
liberal republican campaign con
tributors, and the' must be paid off.
Unfortunately for the public, poiiti
cal conditions exist which will
secure for them such legislation.
But the people so decided and must
aot now complain.
So far as announced the McKinley
cabinet is composed of millionaires.
John Sherman, the gentleman se
lected for secretary of state, is a
several times millionaire, and Lyman
J. Gage, selected for secretary of the
treasury. Is ditto, o likewise is uon.
lger, of the war portfolio. These
are the only selections yet made, as
far as the public is absolutely certain
of, but this start certainlv fhould
satisfy the plutocrats that McKinley
appreciates their contributions.
bo called "Travel.? nrroueb the Interior
Parts of America. Ia a Series of Let
ters." The writer was Tbona3 Aubo
rey, captain of tho Twenty-ninth regi
ment, who was with Enrgoyue at bis
surrender. In Mncraillan'a Magazine
there is an excellent notice cf Captain
Anbnrey'a work, and the condition of
the English soldiers ia thus explained:
Bnrgoyne's army was steadily dimin
ishing, whilo the cords round it were
surely tightening. All day and night
from the surrounding woods whistled
tho bullets of tho American riflemen.
The soldiers were so inured to fire, wo
are told, that they ate and slept tinder
it with scarcely any concern, while, to
add terrors to the night, came the dreary
howl of wolves, attracted by hundreds
to each au nnwonted banquet. The
American Eharpdiootera were naturally
in their element cpr.u the steep sides of
tuo wooded raviura that formed such a
feature in every battle and skirmish.
The longed for bayonet hang iu idle
ness from the belts of tho British iu-
fuutry there no room or place for
it. The soldiers hud nothing bnt disei-
plino ami their native valor to make up
fur 1 heir immense inferiority in the use
of tho rifla to most of their foes, nor do
wo reuniro Anburey's testimony to re-
alizo what a hopeless country was this
in whirh Burgoyue's army now found
themselves for the conduct cf warfare
upon European systems. For ourselves,
we have always marveled at the fashion
ia winch tho British soldier of that
day, liulf starved and ridiculonsly
clothed, fonght Lis way through superi
or numbers of his own race as well
armed as he, better mark3tncii and fa

him must have been strange and terri
Th "Ear" of Inflect.
The natnralists have r.ot as yet been
able to uupwer the burning question,
Cau bees hear? But their researches
aion.-j that line have resulted in many
p.ueer discoveries. Simply because a bee
has no curs ou the sides of his bead it
is no Eigu whatever that bo is wholly
without fomoRort of au auditory nerve.
This last assertion is proved by the fact
that gruH.-'lioppsrs, prickets, locusts and
dies all havetlieir ears situated in queer
ularrs under thn wings, cn the middle
of the body and eveu on tho sides of
their legs. The common honsc fly does
his hearing bymeausof some little rows
of corpuscles which aro situated on the
knobbed threads which occupy tho place
which are taken np by the hind wings
of other species cf insects. The garden

hearing situated on each side of bis neck,
and the common grasshopper has them

The old saying that every sweet bus
Its hitter might be accvutuated by the
statement that honey sometimes con
tains the most active and duugerous
poison. A case in point is related iu a
medical review as follows: A mau and
nia wife ate honey. 1 hey took but a
little, as they observed a burning sensa
lion of the mouth anil throat as soon as
the . honey was swallowed. Within a
few minutes both were tukeu ill. Thero
were nnusea, severe pain aud vomiting.
then a loss of cou.ciousness, coldness cf
the extremities, feeble actiou of tho
heart and collapse. No pulse coaid be
detected. Tho wife remained insensible
(or several boars, but the husband was
not entirely restored ntitil the following
day. Even then strength returned very
lowly, and thero was every indication
of extreme exhaustion. A portion of the
honey was treated chemically, end au
extract was given to two cats: to one a
mall dose and to the other a large dose
The small one produced partial ex
haustion, relaxation of the voluntary
muscles and general depression.' The
large one took effect almost immediate
If, producing relaxation, vomiting,
purging, prostration and almost com
plete loss of control over the voluntary
msales. Tho rat did not regain its
aormal condition fcrSl hours.
A fairly thorough examination of th
honey was made in order, if possible,
to 4'aoover the nature of the poisonous
lament. No positive conclusion was ar
rived at, but the chemists were reason
ably satisfied that the rhododendron
and few other plants of that class con
tained tho objectionable substance. It
