Shortly after the advertisement was

his honor that no attempt would be made

Mr. Beals objected to20,000, seeing that
he bad his man in a tight place, and finally
the man agreed to return the boy for fS.Oiio

as the time. But at 10 o'clock last night,

that the police had Lizzie Smith corraled

"There has lxen nothing in the recent

on the tariff, or to prevent that question
from being made the leading one in the

the one line along which the campaign is
made. Tbe party is well united on the
question and its position has been well
defined. Oa the silver question differ

am sorry to see the prominence which
some Democrats desire to make of that

Changing Fashions and Workmen.
When Mrs. Itngtry took a notion to
wear dresses without buttons the result
was the throwing out of employment of
many button makers, but when the fashion
of buckles and ornamental hairpins and
hatpins came in there was a new demand
for workmen. The rapid introduction of
electrio lighting has made a lot of gas fix
tures obsolete and created a demand for a
new set of mechanics to make electrical
apparatus. For many years gutta percha
and indi.n rubber held the market for a
t housand toys and fancy goods, but cellu
loid came in for a share of the profits and
soon afforded employment to thousands of
workmen in great factories. Gutta pc-reha

Why lllue Spectacles Are Preferred.
The ordinary white glass is made of a
purity and freedom from color which leaves
little to be desired. Hut a greater degree
of hardness might be imparted to it, espe
cially if it is intended for eyeglasses with
out a frame. Beside colorless glass, how
ever, a colored raw material is mp.de,
chiefly intended for the protection of weak
eyes. Formerly green glass was much
used for protective spectacles, and arctic
travelers have been very glad of them.
But green glass extinguishes violet, red
and even blue rays and causes objects to
appear in dirty colors.
Spectacles of blue glass, colored with
cobalt are therefore u be preferred.
