his behalf. To a reporter who int,r.
viewed fcim recently Senator Pdlmer
said: "Regarding the next fULdaril
beaur of tte national dimccracy, lean
only say that I have a very strorg brok
ering after Grover Cleveland. 1 have
been tlecttd to the Iliirois fenate several
times and I have now reached a position
which entirely fills ruy ambition. I
would not accept the second pUce on the
pretideotibl ticket with Hill or any other
nos inee under any rorisideration . I
have no doubt and I feel tht Mr.
Hill is a bright and inH !!:: nt
democrat, vonLy the attenun of Lis
party. Should he be neminated Ir
president I see no reason wby he should
not be elected. But as for rr.j.-elf. I
cannot conceive how it wouid be po?.i:iie
for me to accept any position innhich
there is no work to le doxc, hs in an in
active pls.ee like tie vice-f re.-iilt-L .
Neither would I accept under Iii.l, nor
anybody else a cabinet positicn. Now 1
say to you mo:e than I have sail to
anyone except ir.y closest pontic. 1

and all the t'nr.e. My trcbition now is to
bring the great ncrihwtst into the demo

In the debate on the Russian relief ap
propriation bill, Mr. Dockery called at
tention to the present bankrupt condi
tion cf the treasury, and congress should
give it full consideration at the earlics'
possible moment. The "net cash bal
ance" reported January 1 is $34,574 000
a decrease of $4 500.000 during the month
of December, though at the end of Nov
ember the available funds of the treasury
had reached the lowest point f man
Tears. Of the alleged net cash ba'ance
115.000,000 is in the "pet banks" as a
Standing loan without interest,
and $13,000,000 is in small change
of limited legal tender. So that though
demands created by tbe R-ert
Congress to the ex'ent of millions remain
unbonored; though $25,000,000 of na
tional bnnds, due lai September, jt
outstanding and unpaid, there is only
actually in the treasury as available net
cash some $G,t:00.00U of full legal tender
money, wnile the national bank noli
redemption fund is a debtagtinsi thi.
TbS late report of the secretary of the
treasury was by no means satisfactory ?
an exposition of the present condition of
the country's finances. It was an expo
sition that exposed as little as possible of
the policy of extravagance and jobbery
through which the surplus has been spent
and a deficit created.
The subject requires the early atten
tion of the house, and all attainable in
formation on it should be submitted to
the country. The current expenditures
of the administration are in excess of the
current receipts and this and similar
facts in the connection should be brough
out in connection with comparisons of
the ccst of Harrison year by year with
the cost of Cleveland, Arthur. Gtrhrld
and Hayes. The subject should be
treated at once exhaustively and so
plainly that the people cannot be de
ceived by the thimble-rieeing of treasury
book-keeping. The Novemher set'le
ment of accounts with the administration
is not too fur away to begin at once the
submission of the accounts to the people.
Ornament on Saddle.
In the Fifth century saddles were tiiude
ao extravagantly magnificent that a prohi
bition was issued by .Leo I, in w hie-u it was
ordered tht no one should ornament them
with pearU or precious stones. In the
Sixth century the Emperor Mauritius re
quired that the sad'l les should have laree
coverings of fur. The ignoniinons punish
ment of "bearing the saddle" bad its ori
gin in the Middle Ages. Detroit Frw
The planting of sponges and their in

Vsing Ice with t'louer.
Ice is now- used "ite freely for the pres
ervation of flower--, either lor shrpping or
for keeping into or through the winter,
and flowers so preserved cannot be distin
guished even by an expert from fresh
gathered blooms. Iu special instances a
freezing mixture i formed by combining
salt ami ice, and tl is answers even better
than the pure ice.
A general adopt! in of this pian accounts
for the increase in recent years of beautiful
cut flowers in winter, and it has also
brought the price dowu to within the
reach of people who never thought of buy
ing flowers out of season ix-fore. There
are many other wa ; s of preserving flowers
for a few weeks or even months, but the
ice plan holds good for an indefinite period
and never seems to fail. Interview iu St..

A Sricntilic Trick.
To balance an egg on the neck of a bottle,
as illustrated in the cut. insert into an or
dinary cork, one on either side, two forks
of c-x:wtly equal weight. Hollow slightly
the lower end of the cork, so that it may
adapt itself with tolerable exactness to the
larger cad of the egg. Place the. opposite
extremity of the egg oa the edge of the
neck of a bottle, holding it as upright as
possible. After one or two attempts you
will find that the combination rests in
equilibrium. In this instance equilibrium
is obtained by lowering the center of
The nonseiciit ific reader may le glad to
know of a practical method of finding the
center of gravity of a given object. If the
object ha freely suspended by a string and
allowed to come to a state of rest, its center
of gravity will be in a line extending verti-
BAI.ANCIN-0 AS Fir. V NKC'K OF BOTTLE,
eally downward from the point of suspen
sion. In order to ascertain its exact situ
ation in snch line we once more suspend
the object, at; aching tbe string to some
other point of it s surface The center of
gravity will again be in t he vertical line
extending downward from this point.
Note the oint of intersection of the two
lines Riid the situation of the center of
gravity will be exactly determitietL It
should lie borne in mind that the center of
gravity is not always situated within the
substance of the object-. Thus in the case
of a pair of partially ojicned compasses
their center of gravity will lie somewhere
between the two arms, varying iu jiosition
according to the &ugle which they make.
A New System of Wood Paving.
Science says that a new system of wood
paving that is now being tried in Paris
makes use of pieces of oak alsjut four
inches long, split up similarly to ordinary
kindling wood. The sticks are laid loosely
on end in fine sand on a bed of gravel from
four to four and one-half inches thick. A
layer of line aaud is spread over them,
aud they are alternately watered anil
beaten several times. In about forty-eight
hours the water has completely penetrated
the wood causing it to swell into a compact
mass, which is capable of supporting tha
heaviest traffic, according to reports.
