Ex-Prksidest Cleveland is to speak
at Ann Arbor, Mich., on the 22J of Feb

convention is in session, which is to ap

places, especia ly if Cleveland speak'

The new Chicago university Las ten
dered its chair of history to Dr. Her

Minneapolis Lumberman, is likely to pats
into history as a mild and open on .
Four recent winters have been open and
midwinter sales cf lumber have keon
large in consf quecce. Just what influ
ence a bard winter would have on trade
after this experience will be watched

be recognized that open winters appar

The opponents i.r iree lumber, mostly
the norlt.wisern lumr.er tycdicates and
their official ted urn fficir.I agents, insiti
that a repeal of the duties on tbie raw
material would not a3ect its price. Yet
tbey can readily see that tbe repeal of the
duties on tugar has brought down the
price cf that commodity. Ia pr.'of of
their assertion, they point to tbe fact
that the Blight reduction of duty or.
white pine lumber in .be Mi Kidey tar;ff
has not rednced the price of this lumber
to the consumer one penny, al'houga it
has greatly stimulated its importation.
Yet, with characteristic consistency, the?
assert that a repeal of the duties would
"paralize the lumber industry." If. as
they claim, a partial reduc ion of du'ies
has not had the leabt effect upon the
prices of lumb. r, wba'. would be likely to
le the effect of their total rejeil?
Tbe farts of the 1 amber trade show
plainly CLOugh that the duties on this
material are not needed for protection."
but serve only to despoil American coe
sunr.ers. Wmle the totil impor'sof lum
ber ana its products last year amounted
in value to a little less than $:5 .000.000,
tbe exports amounted in v.lue to upward
of 126.000,000. Ia 1890 these exporte
exceeded $28 000.000 in value; having
since declined, witn other tuple exports,
under the malign influence of the WcKin
ley tariff. But since tbe country is able
to make these large exports of wood and
its manufactures, wherein lies the neces
sity for protectiug ih-m in the tone
market? It is not pretended that these
exports are not sent abroad in a profitable
trade; ccr c-in it be pretended that Amer
ican consumers would py less than tor
eign consumers for this lumber if tbe duty
should be removed. Why, then, thou Id
a protective duty be put upon lumber,
unless it be for the purpose of plunder
ing borne consumers?
Not contented with the duties on or
dinary grades of lumber, heavy duties are
imposed on sawn lignumvi le ebony,
rosewood, mahogany and other Valuable
tropical woods used in the manufacturc
of furniture. The absuidity of these du
ties lis in tbe fact that hardly a foot of
the fine varieties of wood on which tbey
are imposed comes iulo tue Uaited
S.ates. Although these wood), when not
sawed into boards nor manufactured in
any shape, are on the free list, very little
is imprr:ed into the country. Tbe mi

Few things and Clever Ideaa Describe
by The Decorator anil Furnisher.
Centers of heavy linen nre very effective
on the dining table when couched with gold
and with the background fish scaled with
white silk. . The couching is of the heavy
Japanese wash gold, which bus on the
silken background the effect of gold bro
cade. The hem is simple hemstitched or
may be finished with a fall of lace. Heavy
or fine sheer linens, sateens silk and bolt
ing clo:h are all used as centers, and newer
than any of these is a silk material callttl
"mail loth," which is especially adapted
to centerpieces, because it is v'oven so like
huckalack that daraing is a simple matter.
It is decorated with a bold design, either
outline l or couched, a favorite combina
tion for which is delicate green and white.
One cf the novelties seen as yet only in
the sho is is the swinging, tranelike ml to
be put on doorframes, and from which the
portien is suspended, iiu-tcad of being
fastened to the frame. These come in
white. with brass rings anil trimmings,
and probably darker wood as well, and e.re
ornanie ltod with curves and scrolls. They
swiug lack and forth and are fastened at
one end only, so they can be adjusted at
any nnt le desired. They might le used

made of lieautiful brocades with the pat

worked in tapestry stitch, and others in
tent sti'ch on a watered gold or silver
ground. The stitches are worked on can

A net is precisely what it needs. Drape
the seine against the wall from a bamboo

that background hang a lot of your marine

Hundreds of Miles of Swamp Land
Abounding with Trees and Ant mala.
One of the wildest and weirdest regions
thus far discovered in Florida is the lake
known as the Jane Green swamp, or Saw
grass lake, whicl has an area of at least
300 square mile mil contains the finest
body of cypress tres on this planet.
This is a genuine sportsmen" paradise,
wild animals being numerous and so fear
less through their tinacqtiaintance with
man. that a hunter has actually to kick
some of them out of his way before they
Parokeets scream on almost every liough
and move in dense flocks, like our common
blackbirds; flamingoes, ibises, roseate
spoonbills, pelicans and other aquatic and
wading hints haunt the margins of the
lake at all times, and raccoons and op pos
sums, bay lynxes, otters, foxes and marsh
hares are abundant enough to arouse the
avarice of even an amateur trapper.
Deer, lears and pumas are uumerous on
the uplands, aud turkeys haunt the con
tiguous forests, where mast is abundant.
Snakes are also unusually common, every
water hole and clump of bushes seeming
to have its own colony. One is likely io
see over a hundred within an hour or two,
and probably three times that lmmiicrin
a day. The most numerous species are the
water and i:plai;d liioccr.sins. but i:ittie
suakes ale also very abundant, and king,
w hip, chit ken and black sr.akes are fre
quently encountered. When the ophidians
arc thick they exhale a sickening odor,
w!iich produces vomiting in some persons,
thi i Iving particularly true of rattlesnakes
The lake has lost much of its water ow
ing to extremely warm weather and a
scarcity of rain, and this forced the lish to
seek refuge ill shallow pools, where they
furnished a feast to owls, buzzards, 'cooes
and 'possums, snakes and sanriatis. Thou
sands of fish could le seen fluttering ntxiut
in the last stages of exhaust ion, while
thousands more lay putrefying on the mar
gins of t he lake or were being devoured by
foxes, 'coons or 'possums.

All animals in the region displayed the
same fearlessness, the deer merely scruti
nizing them with fatuous curiosity, the
liears snufliug theair, as if trying to decide
to what class of creatures they belonuvd,
and the hugest alligators in Florida lay
ing no attention to their presence.
The corn-like ni'Stsof the .saurian are one
of the most marked features of tbe land
scape, as they fireextraordlnavily abundant
and scent to have ln-en in existence for
many years. Young reptiles are, as a con
soqiidice. very common, and :.s they are
always ready for a liuht, a person m.ist be
careful not to approach thm too closely.
The wild hogs so com:u:m on the gulf
coast of Florida have not yet migrated as
far toward the interior as S.iwt;rass lake,
but some hunters hote they may soon find
their way toward it in order to dest roy the
numerous snakes that make its liorders a
scene of horror.
Mosquitoes fly in swarms there during
the r,:iay seasoa. and are so persistent in
their attacks that explorers are compelled
to make thiir bed between two or more
lirvs if they would get any sleep. Tl:ese
wijsged plagut s, like the snakes and sau
rians. are in a state of hiljernation during
the w int. r ltd do not appear in seriously
annoyimr numbers nut il May or .Tune.

"It is quite astonishing that so few per

making a wry face over the thick, muddy
