Davekport Dtsnocrat: Senator John
II. Palmer, of Illinois, has been given a
back seat in the senate chamber. Before
the end of tbe next session of congress
Senator Palmer will demonstrate his abil

The government census bureau has
issued the following interesting statistics
upon waterways traffic: In 1SS9. 3.639
tons were carried on tbe Red river of the
north, 6.373,448 on the upper Mississippi
and its tributaries, 9.080,826 on the lower
Mississippi and its tributaries, and 15.
600,439 on the Ohio and its tributaries, a
total of 81,058,050 tons of freight moved
on all the rivers. Tbe grand total of
passengers carried for all tbe rivers of the
Mississippi valley was 2,384 243 regular,
nd 8,474,646 ferry, a total of 10,858 894.
In anal zing the freight traffic it is shown
that the principal commodities were

forest products and cotton seed and cot
Evert grower of corn and hogs and

the northwest should advise himself
the Chicago Post suggests of the difficul
ties which have attended the importation
'of American pork at German ports under
the new law of the empire. In cases
where Secretary Rusk's certificates of
purity have been properly attached to the
cargo tbe swine have been admitted with
out question. But the slightest defect in
the wording of the certificate, the small
est deviation by careless officials from
the exact letter of the law, has more than
once furnished occasion for detaining tbe
cargo and much delay and expense in
consequence. Shippers have tbe right,
nd should insist upon it, to exact tbe
most minute performance of their duties
by Mr. Rutst's officers. The readmisMon
of tbe American bog was not procured
without difficulty, and it is too valuable
a concession to be frittered away or im
paired by official carelessness and incom-
"Old Bobs, " Frank Flint, is lying on
his death bed at his divorcod wife's
stoma on the South side in Chicago, says
tbe Tribune. He was taken sick some
three weeks ago and has had a violent
hemorrhage since, which almost proved
his death. Since that time he has been
enable to take any nourishment, and tbe
doctors say he will never be able to leave
his bed again. Many memories linger
round the name of ' Oid Hoss," as be
was known; memories that bring tbe
cranks back to the days when base ball
was struggling for popularity in its park
on the lake front. Flint was one of the
great catchers of tbe decade, and to his
work was due much of tbe success of
Larry .Corcoran, whose remains have just
been placed in their final resting place at
Newark. Flint bears many marks of
rough usage from the days when catchers
had little protection. His hands have
been tbe subject of maoy t ketches on ac
count of their battered and distorted ap
pearance. On Friday evening a week ago Hon.Wil
liam M.Bpringer spoke in historic Faneuil
hall, Boston. Standing room was at a
premium, and tbe enthusiasm wss in
tense. Tbe Boston Globe commends
Mr. Springer's speech and prints it in
full. It says he "was evidently well
known by reputation to Boston demo
crats, for be was accorded a hearty wel
come." Tbe speech is a very clear ex
, position of the tarifj question, and was
received with great applause, fre
quently bestowed. At the close of tbe
speech the audience gave "three ringing
cheers for William M. Springer." The
distinguished Illinois citizen spoke Satur
day night at Lowell, and Monday night
at Lawrence. He will go to New
York, and from thence go to Washington
and look after his speakership campaign.
Mr. Springer has devoted about two
months to making speeches for tbe cause
of democracy in Iowa, Obio, Michigan
and Massachusetts. His services have
been in great demand, and be has been
welcomed by large and appreciative au
diences wherever he appeared. ;
THE HANDS. A GRASSHOPPER'S EARS. jCZt- 1
The A ttrlbntes of a Beautiful Hand and
How to Secure Them.
Tbe chief attributes of a beautiful hand
as sun j by bards and written of by novel
ists in the description of their heroines,
seem t J be whiteness, small ness or shapeli
ness. The first and last of these qualifica
tions can be acquired, although Dame Na
ture miy have withheld the fairylike pro
portion so much admired.
Roughness, hardness and redness are
often attributed to the male hand by writ
ers. In "Paradise Lost" there is an allusion
to "his red right hand." Climate also has
a great deal to do with the color and text
ure of the skin. It may often be noticed
what hite, slim hands are possessed by
American and Anglo-Indian ladies. The
enforced idleness induced by tropical heat,
or other causes pertaining to modes of life
and climate, certainly do produce these
white, s ender hands.
A grej.t many whitening applications are
on the market, some being highly lauded.
Before, however, purchasingauy unguents,
we woul 1 advise ladies to borrow some of
their fatuers' or brothers' evening gloves.
For a month or six-weeks these gloves
should 03 worn in bed. Apply any good
whitening preparation, after washing the
hands in warm water and using some good
soap. Hub in the whitening unguent,
giving an extra rubbing to the backs of the
hands. Anything of a greasy nature well
rabbed i i tends to fatten, and so atbin
band can be made softer.
Draw t ie fingers out, and if the tips are
flat pinch them persistently, making the
object of r.he process to obtain a hnghacked
nail. Cart ful manicuriug, of course, makes
the nails themselves pretty, but excessive
manicuring is injurious. Lastly, draw on
the glove, which naturally will be much
too big, und fasten them as long as no
sense of stopping the circulation is felt.
Glyceric and rose water, mixed in the
proportions of one-third glycerin to two
thirds rose water, is very good for the
hands. Tie great secret of success in skin
unpuents ,s to find out what suits individ
ual cuticles and use it.
On going to bed young ladies who suffer
from red arms and elbows, or that ugly ap
pearance like mottled soap, should thor
oughly miissage them with their toilet
cream or pomade, and then quickly pow
der with any reliable powder.
Method of Sterilizing Milk.
To kill ail the bacteria usually found in
milk and there is always a wonderfully
great and diversified army of them it re
quires to be heated a few minutes at about
2U4 degs. F. A special steam sterilizer is
necessary t attain snch a high temora
ture. The same effects may be obtained
usually by 1 wiling the milk about thirty
minutes. Heating a few minutes between
158 degs. an i 1T6 degs. is sufficient to de
stroy temporarily the energy of a large
number of milk microbes, including sev
eral disease zerms, but does not kill many
of them, and is not, therefore, sufficient as
a preservative means. This is the temper
ature (about 107 degs.), the application of
which is known as pasteurization.
The Bacteriological World, authority for
the foregoing, says that it is not only to
destroy disei.se germs that sterilization is
indicated. Indeed, in infant feeding it is
chiefly to prevent the irritative action of
acid produced by microbes, or germs of all
kinds, whether truly milk ferments, patho
genic bacteria, or organisms harmless un
der ordinary circumstances.
Milk coagulates, acidifies, under the in
fluence or vegetative phenomena of various
ferment organisms. The acid produced
has the most oaneful action on the delicate
stomach and ntestinal canal of the child.
Sterilization of fresh milk destroys the
property of the germs before any acid is
produced by their process of nutrition.
Bow to Seat tlie Guests and an Attractive
Menu fur the Occasion.
At a ladies' luncheon the hostess takes
the head of the table and places the guest
of honor at her right hand.
Unless cards are used, the hostess should
have so clear a:i idea in her own niiud of
where each guest is to sit as to be able to
direct them to their places without con
fusion. It is not necessary for the guests
to go in in cou.iles. The hostess usually
takes tbe guest of honor, and the others
may fall into line as they please.
Hat-par's Bazir.which is authority for
the foregoing, s tys that "A pretty lunch
might comprise bouillon; small squares of
fried halibut an 1 Parisian potatoes; either
sweetbread pal ties, broiled chicken, or
lamb chops with green peas; tomato may
onnaise saiatl, ires or charlotte russe, or
some other dessert; fruit and coffee; salted
almonds and olives as uorsd'eeuvrus. The
entree may be omitted if desired.
Hints About Invitations.
Invitations to small and rather informal
entertainments c an be written on a lady's
visiting card with perfect propriety, ac
cording to an i uthority on '.Manners,"
though informal notes are more custom
ary. In inviting the different members of
a family the u.oiie of the daughter or
daughters is fret ueutly placed after that
of the parents on a card of invitation, but
a son should always receive a separate
card. When arvi ral sisters in a family re
ceive an invitat on addressed to "The
Misses,". it is usuiilly understood that not
more than two ot them will- avail them
selves of the invitation. Invitations for
auy general entertainment sent to a coun
try house whei-e guests are stopping are as
a rule addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Green
and party," this nvitation including the
sons aud daughtets of the house as well as
NovcItUas In Note Paper.

by its own beautiful color. Sometimes the
top left corner bf bite paper has an imi

edge and small init.als, and are now made
in the long shape, v ith eu velopes to match.

A Fanny State of Affairs Discovered by
Here is a funny state of affairs. A grass
hopper has its ears in its forelegs! Sup
posing one of your friends had an ear on
each of his arms, between the wrist and
elbow, would you not think it a very queer
place? Vet this is just where ears are situ
ated in crickets and grasshoppers, tells a
writer in St. Nicholas.
PAKT OF LEO OF GRASSHOPPER SHOWTKO
On the tibia of their forelegs may be seen
a bright, shiny spot, oval in form, w hich
has been found to be a true ear. Old nat
uralists supposed these strange structures
helped in some way to intensify the pene
trating, chirping sounds of crickets. No
one for a moment thought they might be
ears, and I don't much wonder at it. How
ever, Sir John Lubbock and other modern
naturalists have decided that crickets, bees,
aurs aud other little animals shall not keep
their sense organs a secret from ns any
longer; and although these are often in the
least suspected places, still by careful ex
periments they are sure to be discovered,
as was tbe cricket's ear. Some grasshop
pers have no ears in their legs, and as a
rule these cannot sing.
While on the subject of ears I have some
thing else to tell you. There is a certain
member of the crustacean family whose
two ears would give you much trouble to
find; for where do you suppose they are?
In one of the segments of its tail!
The part of tbe leg of a grasshopper
showing the ear in the illustration is, of
course, greatly magnified.
A Chicken Story.
Very tame hens frequently show a desire
to talk in their way, aud it is often possi
ble to make out t heir meaning. "One day
a Cochin hen," tells a chicken fancier in
Golden Days, "came and stood "in front of
me, looked me full in the face and com
plained loudly of something I could not
translate further. Patient investigation
revealed that one end of her perch had
slipped down, aud Mrs. Buff had no idea
of sleeping on an inclined plane. Another
time a nervous little Leghorn met me at
the henhouse door, fairly screaming and
jumping with excitement. I understood
from the cackle which finished each sen
tence that she had been disturbed on her
nest. I did not wonder at ber new powers
of cackling when I found the nest occu
pied by a cat and three small kittens.
When the chickens first begin to move' in
the egg, just lefore batching, the mother
hen sings to them a low, croouing song,
very sweet and never heard at any other
time. A friend tells me that her canary
startled her one day by an entirely new
calL It was so plainly 'Come here quick!'
that she hurried to tbe cage to find a big
cat, with its face pressed against the win
dow pane, staring in at poor Ned a dan
ger sufficiently great to account for the
Song or the Wind.

A Lemon Party.
"Bring a lemon" Is a puzzling addition
to an invitation which is printed ou lemon
hued paper. You, however, carry a lemon
to the party as you were bid. After all the
guests have piled up their golden fruit the
lemons are cut and the seeds counted, and
the owner of the lemon containing the
largest number of seeds is the prize win
ner, while the luckless individual whose
lemon is seedless, or nearly so, gets a large
tin or leather medaL Tbe prize is Usually
some inexpensive but pretty trifle, such as
a pocket pincushion, a collar button, a
silver brooch or a paper cutter. The cut
lemons go to make a pitcher of delicious
lemonade, which is served with tha usual
refreshments of a party.
