In lHTit, before tbe repeal of the tariff

upon consumers averaging 8.8 per cent.
Could there be a more instructive
rontrastj in Hie operation of those two
industries one laboring under the
weight of taxed raw material and the
other enjoying the advantage of free raw
material? The leather manufacturers
have obtained a practical monopoly of the
borne market and are pushing their goods
Into tbe bands of foreign purchasers.
The woolen manuftrturer. on tbe con
trarv, have obtained no hold upon
foreign trade and pressed to Hie verge of
bankruptcy in competing in tbe borne
market against the increasing importa

A Mean Reporter.
Several years ago, when W. K. Sullivan,
now managing eliur of The Journal, was a
reporter on The Tribune, be was sent up to
Evaniton to do the college commenceinnit
exercise. When he hail written up the after
noon aeaKicti he took it to the telegraph office
and Incidentally remarked to the operator
that he would have MHne moretuff to send
In the evening about W HO or 10 o'clock. Tbe
operator Informed Mr. Sullivan that the of
fice would be clonml at that tune, and he could
not send any mewage. Mr. Sullivan said tbat
what he desired to send would be Important
matter for hi paper, and aked the dignified
young man why he could not be there to re
ceive It The reply was that be was going to
a ball with his girl that night and be did not
propone to give it up for the paper, the col
lege or for anything ele. Mr. Sullivan en
deavored to argue tlie point with him, but tbe
young fellow would bten to nothing.
Finally Mr. Sullivnn aked in a mock hum
bleness If he could send a message then, and
a rrinlion was granted he tk a blank
and wrote: "Aiimmi Stager. Western Union

time to receive it as he is going to a ball with

signed hi name and banded it in. As the
young man read it he turned all sort of
colors and, seeing that he was beaten, laid it
down and said sadly, "I will be here." Re

The Art of Prolonging Life.
Somewhat different advice must be given
with regard to bodily exercises iu their refer
ence to longevity. Exercise is emential to tbe
preservation of health; Inactivity Is a potent
cause of wasting and degeneration. Tbe
vigor and equality of the circulation, the
functions of tbe skin and tbe aeration of tbe
blood am all promoted by muscular activity,
wbioh thus keeps up a proper hatauce and re
lation between tbe iuiiortant organs of tbe
body. In youth the vigor of tbe system is
often so great that if one organ lie sluggish
another part will make amends for the de
ficiency by acting vicariously, and without
any consequent damage to itself. In old age
the tasks ran not t thus shifted from one
organ to another ; the work allotted to each
sufficiently taxea its strength, and vicarious
action can uot I tierformed without mis
chief. Hence the Importance of maintaining, a
far as pownblo, tbe equable action of all the
bodily organs, so that the share of tbe vital
processes assigned to each shall be properly
accomplished. For this reason exercise is an
Important part of tbe conduct of life in old
age; but discretion is absolutely necessary.
An old man should discover by experience
how much exercise be can take without ex
hausting bis powers, and should be careful
never to exceed the limit. Old persona are
apt to forget that their staying powers are
much leas tban they once were, and tbat,
while a walk of two or three miles may prove
easy and pleasurable, the addition of a return
Journey of similar length will seriously over
tax the strength. lr. Kobeon I loose in Popu

Physicians aad Persian Wosnoa.
When a Persian lady is ill and requires the
attentions of a physician, she must be con
cealed by a screen, and he makes his inquiries
without seeing her. She may be permitted
to put out ber band and wrist in order that
ber pulse may Iw felt, but only when actually
nacessary. Among the lower classes in tbe
villages a little more freedom in permitted in

prudently decamps to tbe next village. If
the patient recovers, praise is given to God
as well as to the doctor; if be or sbedieo, tbe
result is laid to kismet, or fate, but at the
same time It is well tbat tbe doctor should
not be on baud, for human wrath is liable to
overcome faith In tbe decrees of destiny.

COMMENTS BY CORPOrtAL TANNER
Waal He Ha ta Bay Regarding the Man-
rersoa Psnalon Cave.
Washincton Citt, Oct ia The Post
publishes aii interview with Corporal Tan
ner In which he justifies his action in re-rating
Senator Mandsrson's pension. He says:
"I have not seen a copy of Secretary Noble'
letter to tVnator Manderson, but judging
from thee) tracts quoted in Setator Man
dersin's letter I presume that he decided that
tbe ee-ratin was illegal, because no applica
tion bad be in made; and if that is bis rea
son all I car say is tbat the secretary must
have very peculiar ideas concerning tbe
cose. My sonception of the duties of tbe
commission. r of pensions is entirely differ
ent I hive always considered that be
should see that entire justice is done to all
pensioners. If be discovers a case where In
justice is 3eiog done to a pensioner bs
should right the wrong, and I am ot that
opinion sti I, Secretary Noble to the con
trary notwi bstanding."
Oen. William H. Powell' Pension.
Speaking further on the subject, the com
missioner lid it recalled to hi mind the
case of Gen. Willinm H. Powell, who was
re-rated jus-, four days prior t i his (Tanner's)
appoint men. Gen. Powell, be aaid, bad re
ceived a gui -sbot wound in theshoul.ler, and

down tlie incline, increasing iut velocity as
it descended until tbe speed was
frightful. Wbat were tbe feelings
and thoughts of tbe fate I nine
may bsrdly be imagined. The crash at tba
foot of tbe plane was terrible. A cloud of
dust arose that bid the wreck from view fur
a moment, but when it waadispelledtbe scene
was. horrible. Tbe iron frame that formed
tbe lower end of the truck on which the car
rested was thrown sixty feet down tbe street.
The top if the car was lying almost as far
away in the gutter. 1 be truck itself and
the door and seats of the oar formed a shape

mangled bodies of the nine passengers.
Many persons saw tbe cor rush down tbe

New Yoiik, Oct 16. The constitutionality
of tbe grain elevator law was affirmed in a
decision from the court of appeals, banded
down at Albany yesterday. Tbs law fins the
maximum rate "for elevating, weighing, and
discharging grain," st of a cent per bushel,
and provides that "in the process of handling
grain by means of floating or stationary ele
vators, tbe lake vessels or propellers, tbe
ocean vessels or steamships, and canal boats,
shall only be reqitred to pay the actual cost
of trimming or shoveling to the leg of tbe
elevator when unloading, and trimming
cargo when load."
Invite Them to the Polls.
Judge Andrews' opinion seti forth that
the main question is whether the legislation
fixing the maximum charge for elevating
grain contained in the act is valid an l con
stitutional "There is a remedy at the polls,"
Judge Andrews says, "and it is an efHcisnt
remedy if tbe legislation is oppressive and
unjust The remedy by taking away the
power of the legislature to act at all would
be radical and complete. "1 he division or
opinion in this and other courts is evidence
of tbe difficulty which surround the ques
