"Do not the president and his as

into the maelstrom of hopeless dis
aster," asks the Philadelphia Times,
by tolerating a now tariff policy
that seems to be dictated chiefly or
wholly by monopoly greed, and that
puts additional heavy taxes upon
the necessaries of life without any
reasonable hope of increasing the
wages of labor? The McKinley tar
iff was the great political snicide of
modern times, but the Dingley tariff
bill, if its present probable schedules
are enacted, must provoko the most
sweeping rovolution recorded In the
annals of the republic."

In his youth Augustus J. C. Hare
lived with his adopted parents at a ree
tory in Shropshire, and of the life there
be gives some picturesque details in the
story of bis life:
When there was "a wash" at Stoke,
which was about every three weeks, it
was a rule with granny that, summer
or winter, it must always begin at 1 a.
m. At that hour old Hannah Berry used
to arrive from the village, the coppers
were heated and the maids at work.
The ladies' maids, who were expected to
do all the fine muslins, etc. , themselves,
had also always to be at the washtubs
at 3 a. m. by candlelight If any one
was late, the housekeeper reported to
Mrs. Lercester, who was soon down
npon them pretty sharply. Generally,
however, her real practical kindness and
generosity prevented any one minding
Mrs. Leycester s severity. It was looked
upon as only "her way," for people
were not so tender in those days as they
are now, and certainly no servants would
have thought of giving up a place which
was essentially a good one because they
wero a littlo roughly handled by their
mistress. In those days servants were as
liable to personal chastisement as the
children of tho house and would as little
thought of resenting it "You don't
suppose I'm going to hurt my hand box
ing your ears," said granny when about
to chastise the school children she was
teaching, and she would take np a book
from the table and nse it soundly, and
then say, "Now we mustn't let the oth
crcarbo jealous, " and turn the child
round and lay on again on the other
sido. Granny constantly boxed her
housemaids' cars, and, alas, when he
grew very old, she used to box dear
grandpapa's, thongh she loved him dear
ly, the ftrcat source of offense being that
he would sometimes slyly give the serv
ant s elbow a tip when his daily table-
spoonful of brandy was being poured

"A grand joke developed itself not
long ago," says a Monte Video corre
spondent "A native paper published
alarming paragraphs to tho effect that
the British war vessels were making
soundings and taking surveys and effect
ing other highly suspicious operations
near Maldonado and that they had land
ed an armed force with instruments and
terrible unknown engines.
"The government was warned to pre
pare for an invasion or at the very least
a second Trinidad affair. These revela
tions were apparently confirmed by
telegram from a newspaper correspond
ent in Maldonado, who said that he
himself had seen 'those dreadful Eng
lish' at their tricks.
"Before such a denunciation the au
thorities could not remain silent, and
accordingly an official telegram was
sent to tho captain of the port at Mal
donado for information. His reply was
to the following effect:
'It is not true that the English have
been making plans of the port or meas

they have done is to mark ont a course

all on one side of the fabric. The manu

The reversibility of the physical proc
esses of nature has latterly been the
subject of interesting comment Lord
Kelvin, for example, has been credited
with saying that all cf them, no matter
how complex they might appear to the
human senses, consist in reality of the
motions of invisible molecules, and if,
therefore, by. .some means, all these
molecules could, at tho same timn, be
made to move in exactly the opposite di
rection, and each with the same velocity
that it possessed at the moment all the
world would begin and continuo to move
backward; waterfalls wculd flow np the
sides of cliffs, rivers would run upward
from the sea, rain would rise, full blown
flowers would shrink into buds and
plants dwindle into seedlings, mdh him
self would become young again, passing
from old age to infancy. Just what kind
of pictures such a topsy-tnrvy world
would present may be seen with a kinet
oscopo running backward. Professor
Queroult, according to report, has made
observations in this line, and some time
