Mr. Habrison'8 politicians say Mr.
Blaine cannot be a candidate while he re
mains in the cabinet. This is on tbe
theory that Mr. Blaine is Mr. Harrison's
personal servant, because of the salary he

strike Mr. Blaine as incorrect.
A Michigan business man advertises by
sending a dollar note up in a paper bl
loon every evening, tbe money becoming
the property of tbe finder. This style of
advertising may do for Michigan, where
outside of its large cities the newspapers
have very limiud circulation. But it
would be too slow for Illinois where the
business men have the opportunity of
sending their dollars round to the news
papers' counting room and availing them
selves of their circulation to pl&ce their
advertisements before tbe people.
A tocng wife in Georgia is about to
sue for divorce on the ground of viola

told her sweetheart she was willing to
share his poverty and live on bread and

if she would furnish the bread be would
hustle around and get the water. And
so they were married; but hardly was
the honej moon ended before a collector
came around and cut off the street pioe

The Mexican government is not averse
to the planting of colored colonies in So

snd the American government will put
no obstruction in the way of any of our
colored people who may desire to go
there. Thus far, however, there has
been no sign that any part of the colored
population of the United States is desir
ous of transplantation or of fettlins in
any other country, even in Mexico, or
the West ladies, or L'beria. It is evi
dent tbat they rather like to live and la

take pride, but eventually to tbe estab

equal interest and equal share in tbe

in all but name, and the eooner they rea
lize that there is more to be gained for
each in pulling together than pulling
apart, the imaginary line of difference
will disappear, and both cities will see
the advantage of united effort.

AN INTRICATE ROBBERY.
A PCOTECTION THAT HURTS MANY
OF lS WARMEST SUPPORTERS.
A Samfle' Illustration of the Derlons
Ways in Which Interference with Free
dom Injures Mankind Colored Tlasne
Paper aa a Specialised Manufacture.
Various excuses re given for increas
ing the duties op manufactures. Some
times the proposed object is to preserve
an indut try threatened with destruction.
Sometin es it is to create an industry for
which some one professes to have dis
covered a demand. Alwavs, of course,
there is 1 be professed care of the Ameri
can woikingman. Doubtless all these
reasons in turn were urged for the in
crease cf the duty on tissue paper,
though certainly none of them properly
The former tariff was 25 per cent, ad
valorem; the McKinley act increased it
to 15 ptr cent, ad valorem and eight
cents per pound. On the lower priced
papers tl e increase amounted toapver 130
per cent. On a ream of the lower priced
foreign paper the duty under the old law
amonntel to thirty-t wo cents; under the
McKinlev act it amounts to seventy-five
cents. The increase was not needed for
the protection of the American workmen
from th- competition of the "pauper
labor" of Europe, Ix-canse the price cut
no figure in the competition between the
domestic and foreign articles, either be
fore or since the amendment of the tariff
schedulef. The lowest priced article of
imported colored tissue paper costs far
more at the mill in Europe than the best
product c f the American mills.
As a matter of fact no American man
ufacturer has cared to engage in the pro
duction cf the wide range of colors that
would bti necessary to supply the de
mand, even if he had the monopoly of
the entire trade of the country. Colored
tissue pajrs in this country are used To
only a limited extent compared with tne
countries of Europe. A single house 'n
Russia, for instance, handles more col
ored tissue paper than all the importers
of America, While in America it is
used prin '.ipally to make flowers, lamp
shades and small house ornaments, and
only to a limited extent at that, in
nearly all the countries of Europe it is
put to a great variety of uses.
Several years ago a domestic manu
facturer liegan the manufacture of a
full range of colors and produced a first
class article, but within three months
he had oversupplied the trade and ie
came his own competitor to such an ex
tent that be literally drove himself out
of the business. After failing to get an
importer to whom he applied to take the
mill off h:s hands and run it on an offer
of its use for three years for nothing, he
reconstructed the mill and went into
another business. He had a practical
monopoly of the American trade while
he was in the business, and found that
with his f ingle mill he could glut the
market w.th three months' production.
As in several other cases in which the
tariff was increased by the McKrnley
bill for tha purpose of giving the domes
tic man uf-tcturer a more complete mo
nopoly of the trade, the increased tax
has failed of its object. There is no
more domestic paper made, and the de
mand for the imported article continues
just about what it used to be under the
old tariff. The price of the domestic ar
ticle went un from sixty cents per ream
to eighty cents directly after the increase
in the duty, but this was only a nomi
nal, not an actual, increase. Within a
week, it is said, the domestic manufac
turers begin cutting prices, so that now
they are lower, if anything, than they
were before the billion dollar congress
increased -he duties.
The only perceptible effect of the in
creased ti riff has been to compel the
consumer to pay more for the paper he
uses and will continue to use, as it has
bn denu nstrated, in preference to the
poorer donestic article, notwithstanding
the great increase in the dury.
Here, th n, is an example of an in
crease in the tariff that helps neither
manufactcrer uor laborer, and only takes
from tho consumer a considerable sum
to be sen! to the already overflowing
coffers of Jie national government. In
other worls, users of tissue paper are
taxed to pi oduce a revenue that the gov
ernment d' es not need, and professedly
to stimulate an industry for which there
is little or ao demand.
McKlnley'a Wool Tariff.
A special dispatch to the New York
Evening Tost from Cleveland, dated
Aug. 3, det lares that: "The low price of
wool and tie scarcity of buyers is doing
much to convince Ohio farmers of the
fallacy of I IcKinley's protectionist argu
ments. On Saturday, at Millersburg, a
load of wool stood on the street all day
and not a bid was offered for it. The
fanner owi.tr was compelled to find a
place to store it and wait for a buyer at
But this is just the effect it was claim
ed the McK inley tariff would have.
Thomas Dolan, the president of the
High Tariff Manufacturers' club of Phil
adelphia, and the man who, next to
Judge Lawrence, of Ohio, had the most
to do with the making of the wool
schedule in the McKinley tariff, has
just writtea a letter to the New York
World, in which he says: "It is an in
teresting fact, deserving much emphasis
of statement, that the prices of wool are
lower now than they were one year ago.
This decline was distinctly promised by
protectionists during the discussion
which accompanied their framing of the
Rejoicing in Foreign Trade.
A very amusing paradox is that pre-'
sented by the McKinley organs, which'
are just now gloating over the fact that
our imports have increased under the
new tariff law. Larger foreign com
merce was certainly not the avowed aim
of our high protectionist brethren. But,'
if it pleases them, no advocate of freer'
trade with f ireign countries ought to ob-'
ject. Give the McKinley logicians rope'
enough and they will inevitably hang
themselves. Boston Globe.

Quaint and old fashioned are potpourri
jars with perforated lids for perfuming
drawing rooms and boudoirs. A delicious
potpourri is that with the odor of tbe wild

is white lilac, and this is most refreshing
when sprayed from a vaporizer.

Protecting Silver from TirnUhine.
It is worth while knowing that silver
articles put away for a time can be pro
tected from tarnishing. According to The
Decorator and Furnisher this can be done
by applying to them, with a soft brush,
collodion mixed with alcohol. If silver
plate is already tarnished, its full bril
liance may be restored by washing it in
liquid potassia, next rinsing it in warm
water and then immersing it in a liquid
composed of one part of alum, one part
of common salt aud two parts of salt
peter in three parts of water. The pliue
has now to be washed in luke warm
water, then wiped with chamois leather
and finally packed in sawdust to dry.

Excellent authority says that all large
whitefish should be placed, for tbe ptrpose
of boiling, in cold water, of which there
should be only euough to cover the fish
well, otherwise the skin is liable to crack.
To every quart of water should be added a
teaspoonf ul of salt. When it begins to boil
remove the lid of the kettle and let it sim
mer very gently. Skim tbe water care
fully. It will take about thirty minutes to
boil a four pound fish.
For curtain bands many use brass chains;
others use cord or silk ribbons. It is not
usual to work them, but occasionally the

foundation, and powdered with daisies or
other flowers. Sometime ribbon is embroidered.
