Thr Manhattan clab. of New oxV,
Kires Coy. Hill a grand reception m the
21st Inst., the day after 'fee national tom
time and place for, the
democratic national convention.
Thk emphasis with which Senator O.
F. Berry, of Hancock county, disclaimed
being a candidate for a place on the state
ticket at the republican gathering at Chi
cago on Thursday, creates the suspicion
that he may have his ejes turned to
wards congress. Mr. Berry isn't in the
habit of allowing a campaign roll by
without baviDg his lightning rod up for
something or other. Cme, now. Mr.
Beiry. what is it you wantf
Senator Plumb ance said: "I believe
in the local newspapers. Tbey are the

At a oueetiDg or the dtmocratic State
central committee, of Iowa, held in DiS
Moines last week, it was virtually tgrteJ j
by the committee that the democracy of ;
Iowa should present the came of Gov.
Boies as a candidate for president to the
national convention. It is not improb
able that the democrats of Illinois will ask
for the nomination of Senator Palmer, so
that if tbe convention deems it expedient
to come to the west for acandidate it will
find suitable presidentive timber in either
Palmer or Boies. Then there is Senator
Gray, of Indiana, another western demo-

men named above.the honor would fall to j
the soldier-statesman of Illinois. Besides !
being presidential possibilities, both Boies
and Gray are favorably spoken of for the
second place on the ticket. Not so with
Gea. Paimer. Irthe democracy of I li
aois preeen's his name to the national
convention it will be for tbe presidency
and that alone. There is a deep rooted
and growing desire to see the "grind old
man" lead the democratic hosts to vic
tory next fall, and if he should be chosen
as the standard-bearer Illinois' electoral
yote will assist materially in swelling the
democratic majority in the electoral coN
When called upon at tbe recent meeting
of the republican state central committee
to speak for his party In the Eleventh
congressional district, Senator Berry, of
Hancock county, is reported as saying:
His district had learned a lesson ttity
should not soon forget. They were feel
ing as republicans who were all earnestly
desirous of working hand in hand for the
success of the party . Tbe district whs
represented, or misrepresented in con
gress by a gentleman who was B&id to
have French or other similar affiliations,
and who had no sort of feeling for or
affinity with our American institutions.
The Akocs. judging from Mr. Berry's
remarks and presuming that be voices
the sentiment of at least a portion of his
party in this district, fails to see
wherein he or it has learned the lesson so
forcibly explained to them at tbe Novem
ber election in 1800. Mr. Berry still ad
heres to the sme senseless twaddle
mouthed by republican spouteri in that
campaign, and he is yet unmindful of the
fact that it was just such puerile argu
ments agsinst Mr. Cable, bs he now t:ss,
that assisted in swelling tbe latttr's ma
jority to abnormal proportions. If Mr.
Berry and his party in this district with '
to profit by past experience it will he nee
essary for them to substitute argument
for buncome, and if they can raife any
valid objection to Mr. Cable personally,
or to his record as a congressman. t;;cy

way. If they do nut tbey will find to

THE SAW TRUST.
How It FTJventu Foreign CoinpetUlos
and 1'lsposes of Its Surplus.
The mov sment which brought about
the consolidation of all of the concerns
making ew s in the United States, wa
begun nearly two years ago. The first
step taken was the consolidation of the
Wheeler, Madden & Clemson Manufac
turing com any, and the Monhagen Steel
works, both at Middletown. X. Y.: the
Woodrough & Clemson company, of
Boston, and the Woodrough & McPar
lin company, of Cincinnati, into one cor
poration un ler ths name of the National
Saw company. It was believed at tbe
time and i was so announced to the
trade that 1 his combination was to lie
independent of all others, and wonld
compete vigorously with the latter.
When, however, the Disttons, of Phila
delphia, had secured control of the Rich
ardson Saw company, of Newark, N. J.,
and several other smaller companies, it
was found t lat they were the organizers
of the Nati nal Saw company also, and
that they had thus gained control of all
the factories of any importance in the
The first r. love on the part of the trust
was to set u-e the retention in the Mc

on foreign saws. The trust was suc

Th? value f our dutiable imports and
the amount of duties collected have been
as follows dr. ring the past five years:
The value of imports subiect to dutv
given above are the sum of the values of
the goods at the place of purchase, that
is the juices at which the goods are
offered for ale to any one in foreign
markets. The duties collected represent

Who has p tid into the treasury of the
United Statt s $1,'Jo,2Ij,:Wu during the
jiast five yea-s? It was certainly jiuid
by one of the five parties concerned iu
the iuiporta ion of the $2, 377, Sol
worth of goo Is. either by the importer
or the foreign manufacturer.
If the imj orter paid these duties he
added the a nouut to the price of the
goods, niid. as Mr. Depow says, tiie
tariff tax "rested on the bottom" "that is.
was paid by 1 he consumer.
But Mr. F ister. the secretary of th
treasury', says that he foreigner p.iys
the tariff tax for the privilege of selling
his goods in our markets. If his view
is the right o io. the foreigner has dur

goods to tiie iJnited .States, for for everv

Facts Bearing on the Theory of Propa
gation by Personal Contact.
In opposition to the theory that influ
enza is a uistJse not dependent upon per
sonal contact af individuals for its pro
gression, that it is not evolved by the in
trinsical operations of a specific poison and
propagated through and by means of the
ordinary channels of human intercourse,
it is mentioned in the Journal of the Amer
ican Medical Association that during the
epidemic preceding the present one ob
servers found that the course of influenza
was independent of, and quite opposed to,
the prevailing winds. It traveled slowly
in Siberia and Russia, but rapidly as soon
3 it reached the network of railways in
central and western Europe.
It9 course was changed by the mountain
ranges of Scandinavia, and it invaded
Norway, not from Sweden, but from Hol
land and England. Again, it was deflected
by the Carpat hians, turning its course in
the channels of travel down the valley of
the Danube, and ultimately following in
direction and time, the oceun routes to
Africa, India, Australia and this country.
In India it has shown the same peculiar
ities in following the railway lines as has
been observed with us.
The Hair anil the Complexion.
The first rule for keeping the hair glossy
and thick is to let the scalp be perfectly
clean. Hair should never be tied np tcii
tightly, ami hot irons shoul 1 be carefully
avoided. The more loose and uneonfiuei
the Lair Wallowed to beat night the bet-,
ter. The hair coming out can be obviated
by a mixture of bay rum, c-antharides, cas
tor oil and carbonate of ammonia rubbed
into t he roots twice a week.
It is best for the general health, and con
sequently for the complexion, to avoi.l
worry, to sleep well and le careful of diet.
Cold water is the best of all tonics, and it
is the fashion of the present day for those
who make the complexion a study to ad
vise the use of cold in preference to hot
water. Overeat ins coarsens the skin. Oui
"complexion specialist" advises for rough
and pimpled skins an ointment composed
of 2 ounces of wax, 2 ounces of cocoa but
ter. 4 ounces of nlniond oil and "20 drops of
carlxilic acid applied at night.
The cold water maybe softened by add
ing a teaspoonftil of either o.ttmeal, pure
aleoho! or x.u dcivd Ix.rax. Having rinsed
the face wit'i ibis, wash it wish a lather
composed uf transparent unsoented soap;
this mu-t be ruhbed on only with tl.i
hands and vi -;or.m-!y, as the f.iction i
jroivl for the skin. Then rub the face hard
with a s,,;'t towel, and subsequently with a
chamois leather a little plain, unscented
Au.-esihcsi:! by the of Cold.
A new method of producing nnn-sthesia
by t lie application of cold, the characteris
tic feature of which is that the part to e
affected is touched not by the cold produc
, ing agent but by a metallic IuIh-or cham-
her which )-. e-M,leit by c.".i lionic acid, is -,
scribed by .Jr. Wicsendenger. The cold
j may, according to the requiivments of the
case, lie refill ited from the teniperatiire of
cold water to one sufhcieiiily low to cauter
j ize. As the instrument maybe nianufi..--
tured of almost nnyshape.it is evident
that this new method maybe used for a
variety of purposes. The simple turning
of a tap will regulate the stream of car
i bonic acid to any decree of temperature
1 down to 4 dei;s. Fahrenheit. Xo moisture
I is produced. In using this cold for the
purpose of cauterizing the surgeon has the
advantage of producing anaesthesia at the
same time. When applying it to any of the
internal cavil ies, such as the mouth, it is
necessary to have the parts carefully dried,
as the tissues would otherwise adhere to
the instrument. The Lancet tells that Dr.
Hummel u sts 1 this method so successfully
in a hospital case ut Hamburg tliat the pa

muscle while a deep incision of twelve
centimeters in length was made in his
Triflini; Amenilie f I nlilonal.le Life
Which Are Their On n lx u-,e for Being;.
Many small amenities which the unac
customed regard as among the fads of fash
ionable life, altogether whimsical and alt
sard, will really be found established upon
reason, if once looked into with any scru
tiny, says Harjivr's fia.ar. w hich illustrates
this theory as follows:
Where the loud speaking woman is
stamped as vulgar, for example, it is not
only because the association connects her
loud voice wit h the fish women of liillings
gate, but because the loud voice is unvaitcd
to dwelling rooms, hurts the ears of the
hearers, allows every one to know all the
speaker's huxiness and often thut of other
people, and betrays, if not a coarse nature,
at least an untrained and uncultivated
manner, v.ioh', bad as it is withindoors, is
acts a gtvnliy worse part without, where it
att racts at tent ion and ui;tes insults: but

its owner, invites, declines, apologizes and

And if we looked into the matter still
more at U :ig: h. without doubt we would
find that, in almost every instance the
thins criticised is a valuable usage.
