While io Monmouth last week we had
tbe pleasure of visiting the rooms of the
Jeffersonian club and meeting many ol
the prominent democrats of the city
One would bar.lly imagine that in a re
publican stronghold like Monmouth such
an crganizition as a Thomas Jefferson
club could exist, but it not only has be
ing, but it 13 in an exceedingly flourish
ing Bordition. 'ew Year's dy the
members kept "open house," and people,
irrespective of party, paid their respects.
The club has attained a me mbersnip of
over 150, acd is constantly growing, and
it is unnecessary to add is doing valiant
service for the democratic cause. So
popular has the club become, its political
opponents are talking of organizing in a
similar manner in the hopes of lessetug
Tbe Frances Cleveland club is another
social organization which adds lustre to
democratic principles in Monmouth. I's
membership is limited to the gentler sex,
but the ladies are no less enthusiastic ar.d
energetic because they are not possessed
of tbe right of suffrage. The influence
of the Frances Cleveland club, we are in
formed, is very perceptible 1n all cam
paigns, besides having the effect ol en
couraging and exhilarating the local dem
ocracy In its unequal contests. Jackson
day, January 8, was appropriately ob
served by the Indies with a literary enter
tainment and luncheon in the eveninf .
There was choice music, an able address
by lion. M. J. Dougherty, of Galesburg,
and remarks by local democrats.
There is a strong sentiment in Mon
mouth to bring out the Hon. Delos P.
Phelps as a gubernatorial candidate, but
he is opposed to being placed in the po
sition of seeking the oflce, and while it is
iafcrred that he would interpose dj ob
jection should he be 'm tendered the nomi
nation, he has so far refrained from giv
ing his personal friends tbe least intimi
tion that be would exert himself to secure
it or that he desired them to d
so for him, Mr. Phelps stands high
with the party throughout tbe state. And
his management of the two last cam
paigns, as head of tbe st.-vte central com
mittee, has shown him to be possessed of
rare qualifications of leadership. Snoulri
Mr. Phtlps decide to become a cundic'.ute,
tbe Eleventh district will go to the m xt
democratic state convention with to
candidates for governor, Hon W. II.
Neece, of Macomb, having sometime
since announced birfiself as an aspirant
for the place. '

sometimes called iarue ducks, come into
port with tl e loss of sars, saila and rig

the readers of stories of the sea have a
certain amoint of sentiment aroused, but
the captains, agents and owdits of vessels
take more practical views of the subject,
and seutimeit has very little consideration

pelled to pay an exorbitant bill for towage
in order to reac i port and save thecarro
after having le-n dismasted or otherwise,
lamased kieyond the power or ability of
the captain to repair.
Hut if a vessel loses some of her spar-,
sails and riquiny in a yale, and the marks
of an ax indicate only the efforts of the
crew to relieve the vessel of wreckage, the
owners or underwriters have to pay the
entire cost of r pairs. If the cost of re
pairs be less than 5 porrent. of the amount
of the insurance the underw riters do not
pay it, but if the co.-t be considerable,
or equal to the insurance for part lo-s, the
underwriters pay it, ter etittiiiif off one
third for w hat n ay tie called new life on
account of new material.
A captain never gives up the comin tnd
of a vassci, nlrhni.gti she may Ik; under the
supervision of th underwriters while m

vessel 1i;ls n-porte 1 to theowners or agents
in port he applies to the underwriters for
i survey of the vessel.

An inspector in the employ of the under
writers meets th! captain on bo'ird the
vessel and, with an e.vpcro rigger and a
shipwright employed in tue interest of the
iwners, cxamiues ( nu damage and ascer
tains the cause. On some parts of the rii;

nd the rest of the riiing may show only
tbe effects of brcal. in t;. The captaiu telis

The inspector am: the experts discuss all

the inspector ben n to keep the cosi .f re
pairs as low as ossibe and maintain
strength, anil that of the experts to keep
is much as possible from the o ners.
Sometimes a lare spar of a vessel has to

though the other spars are iu good condi

POPULAR CORN CURES.
How Some of the Newest and Most Ef
fective ltemediet Are o ill pounded.
In "Notes on New Uemedies," Dr. H. M.
Whelpley tells in Popular Science News
that probably the most popular corn cures
depend ou the action of salicylic acid.
Among the many therapeutic properties of
this comparatively uew remedy is its power
to disintegrate epithelial tissue. It is usu
ally combined with cannabis indica. I)r
Whelpley says: "The form I have found
useful is to mix nine parts of salicylic ncid
with one part of extract of cannabis indica
and forty-eight parts of collodion. This is
applied to the corn t-very night with acam
el's hair brush. The foot should be clean
before it is applied and the mixture per
mitted to thoroughly dry before it conies in
contact with clothing.
I am aware that there are several other
formulas published for this same uiixtiiv,
and that they usually call for less of th
salicylic acid, but 1 believe the abow
amount should be Used iu order to get good
A salicylic acid corn plaster is made bv
mi xiug six parts of resin and adding fivV
parts of balsam of lir, and then "taring i:i

An Austrian regimental surgeon has
drawn a comparison ts-tweenthe wounds
caused by the new small caliber bullets
and those made by less recent form9 of pro

former, saying that the soft parts are less
bruised and the bones less shattered. At

remain in the body, and the wounds are

DRAWING ROOM MEETINGS.
One Way in Whicli Society Assists riiil
The English fashion of holding "draw ing
room meetings" finds increasing favor be
cause of its convenience when it is impor
taut that persons whoso interest is desired
in some philanthropic movement should be
come known fo each other ami to the pro
moters of the undertaking. At a draw ing
room meeting social amenities and ex
change of ideas can take place almost witn
out interruption, a thing impossible on a
public plat form. Auothcr point in favor
of drawing room meetings is that mauy
lalies incapable of doing much toward
helping on so;ne meritorious scheme arc
gl. id to place their thawing rooms at thi;
disposal of more active workers anil to
thus save the hire of a suitable hall or
place of mect.'ig -a uoincousiderabledrain

refr.'shrneuts tea. collee. etc., which are
always giia n at i;s conclusion, is a further
social clement toward success. Again,
drawing 100:11 meetings are held in the
afternoon and the most occupied of women
( .111 spare half an hour to hs.k iu and hear
The arrangements, according to Knglish
etiquette, an- carried out with little varia
tion, although the invitations arc uul al
ways iu exact iy the same words. One
printed form, for example, will run t litis:
"A drawing room meeting" (lirst line):
then, in smaller type, "will be held at Ult
Clinton avenue, by kind permission of Mrs.
Graham, on Wednesday, Jan. .'S, on In-half
of." etc. On the next line is the informa
tiou that " has kindly consented to
in side and an address will be given by,"
etc. If any well known name can lie in
serted it is usual to do so. Oti t he next
line, "The pleasure of your company is ear
nestly invited " "Tea and collee 5:110 p.
m." is put in one corner of the curd. "H.
S. V. P." and the address in the other. On
this form the name of the H.-rson to whom
the invitut ion is given is not written, and
the cants are distributed by the members
of a society t.i their friends aud to their
Another and more friendly form runs
"Mrs. at home;" above this is the
name of the person "and friends" invited,
at the top of the card the name of the so
ciety; under the words "At home" is given
the date, the day, and the hour, ami the
mimes of the dilfen-nt gentlemen by whom
addresses w ill be given. In one- corner, as
before, is the address, and in t he other "Tea
and coffee at four" ami "K. S. V. P."
When an invitation to a drawing room
meeting is iu this wis;, it is usual for the
hostess toshake hands with all comers, an J
btrangers are introduced to her by their
irienus; nut when the invitations are
issued in t he first form, tiie lady iu whose
house the ti- eting is held does not come
forward to receive the whole of the com
pany. The arrangements for t hese meetings are
very simple. The speakers nhue them
selves iu the most convenient part of the
room, a sman taoie is close at band lor
books, napers. etc.. and rows of chairs ktv
placed as at a concert. Tea and colfee aw

of the meeting, the hostess leading the
