Fxakk Hatton sounds the warning in
bis Washington Post, that if the repub
lican defeat local option in Iowa the state
will be lost to the party entirely .
It wsi an odd coincidence that CardN
nala Manning and Simeoni were elevated
to their highest rank in the church on the
same day and died on the same da;.
What is mere, the last official letter
penned by the English cardinal was by
chance addressed to his Vatican confrere,
the late prefect of the propaganda.
A leading life insurance company Las
agreed to pay its late present, who has
resigned, the munificent sum of 537.000
a year. This sum is royal in its ampli
tude. It is more than most active rail
road president receive. It is indicative of
the vast expenditures and extravagances
that now cbar&c'erizc life insurance com
panies. This ixtr&Vigant or at least extraor
dinary expenditure by life insurance com
panies is a matter that ought to receive
more attention than it does from poiicv
holders. The money that is paid cut in
unutual salaries and pensions and in
other methods which strike the uninitia
ted as wasteful comes from premiums,
and, if the insurance futil is amply pre Ti
ded for, represents the money cdlecttd
in the foim of prmiums teyoni tbe
strict necessities of the c -mpanj.
Apparently, although the case is differ
ent with otter business cencerns, life in
surance corrpanies have not jet felt the
tecessity of coming down to a stric.lj
Tee democrats of the bouse have Ukv n
the first step toward turning the l!ght on
in dark places by the adoption of resolu
tions authorizing investigations of the
World's fair, the crocked national bank
failures at Philadelphia, and, most im
portant of all, the pension office. The
resolution under which tbe last investi
gation is to be made was reported to ate
committee on rules as a substitute for
those offered by Representatives Enloe
and Cooper, It provides for tbe appoint
ment of a select committee ef five to in
vestigate tbe methods of business,
whether use has been made by the com
missioner of his official ' position
to promote Lis private affairs or
for ptrtisian political purposes,
whether there has been discrim
ination made between applicants for pen
sions or practicing attorneys, whether
any of the clerks have taken advantage
of their positions to make profits, at. d
whether the civil service law has been
yiulated by the commissioner. Oa mo
tion of Mr. Enloe the resolution was
amended to include the methods of the
board of pension appeals. This is a big
jab, but many are wondering why the
resolution did not include tbe charges
which have been repeatedly made by re
sponsible parties of -fraudulent pension
ers whose names are carried upon tbe
rolls. Fcrbars, hewever, tbe committee
may be able to reach that under the
"methods of business" authorization?
Like Two-F.dxd (.word.
Senator Daniels: One ether sugges
tion. The great argument which is made
here in behalf of the tin plate monopoly
that is to be created, of the cotton tie
monopoly that is to be created, and of
all the tribes of monopolies which are be
ing generated in this bill, the pleasing
seductive idea with which it is attempted
to humbug tbe present generation of
Americans is that if you will put on
these high 'axes you will lower the price
of the manufactured products, and that as
a result of this protection manufactuted
products will get cheaper and cheaper
Now, gentlemen, just stand to that the
ory until you get the next schedule of
"With a flourish of banners and a blow
of trumpeti, it is announced to the Amer
ican farmer that you propose to protect
him in the same way that you have been
protecting tbe manufacturer, and you are
going to have a high tariff on bis products,
o that even the few grains of foreign wheat
that come here can come no longer, and so
that the triviality of corn and oats and bar
ley and other farm products that come here
can come no longer. If your theory
that these high taxes cheapen the man
ufactured products is true, are you not
trying to cheapen tbe agricultural pro
ducts by applying a schedule to them of
which you prophesy the same result? It
is because you cannot hold tbe same face
on any two schedules of this bill; it is
because you are all things to all men
and not much to any man, except a mo
nopolist, who ia getting rich and richer

EVERY HOUSEWIFE SHOULD KEEP
TRACK OF EXPENSES. j
Talu. of a System of Household Book
keeping Hew a little Attention to
Bills and Purchases May Save Consid
erable Cnne-essary Outlay.
'Why should I keep accounts?" aj-
the young and inexperienced housekeeper.
"When I want money my husband gives
it to me, and when that ia gone 1 ask him
for more. All the bookkeeping in the
world can't bri ig money back when once
it is spent." True, my dear madam, but
if you try the experiment of comparing
your expenditu res for a given period under
your present system or rather want of
system with jour disbursements for the.
same length o) time during which you
have kept an .w-eount of them, you will
see, in all pro' nihility, very clearly that
during the latrer period you have spent
less and got more for your money. Of
course in making such a comparison you
must take into consideration any unusual
payments such as do not occur regularly.
The principal purposes of keeping house
hold accounts ire two. First ly. to enable
you to see hor much has been spent for
each specific pi rpose, and if such expendi
ture seem t xci ssive, to ascertain the rea
son, and if possible eliminate it. Secondly,
to prevent the Hiblity of jiaying for
what you have not art., or c.f paying twice
for what you have purch.i-.Hl.
The machinery required fr keeping
housekeeping a -counts is very simple, and
ia as follows: A cashbo.'k. showing all
money received and paid. Suitable files
for receipts aii'l unpaid bill-. A book for
each of the tn.cle.-ivoj.ie with whom ac
counts are kept.
A S;.TLE STsTK'd.
The cashlxx'k is kept in the following
manner: On the left hand side of the page
are entered all amonr.ts received, and the
dates ou which t :u-y w ere received. tn the
right hand side nre entered all amounts
paid, with the .late and tLe purpose for
which th.y were paid, and to w bom. It is
of the greatest importance that the cash
book should he written up at least once a
day. as if a Ion ;er interval is allowed to
elapse items bee. me forcot ten and omitted.
For every amo mt paid a receipt should
be obtained, and it is from these receipts
that the rashboc k should be written up.
The rwe ij.its should then lie put away on a
file o const ructe 1 that ny receipt ran be
readily found an 1 referred to w ithoiit dis
turbing the ;he-s.
Accounts shou d be opened with a ltaker,
butcher, grocer, ;.rreen grocer, milkman and
butterman, and with any other trades
people with who n it may be desirable to
do so, and these accounts should lie paid
every week. If accounts are allowed to
run longer than i: week difficulties nre very
likc-ly to arise, owing to the impossibility
of rememlK-nng iccessary details.
Tradesmen wit i whom accounts nre kept
must deliver with the goods each day a bill
stating distinct' the quantities supplied
and the price.

a sort which inevitably begets love in re

It was customary in those days to employ

Mr. Seneer f ll lVontaa hiifTrngo.
However much the giving of political
power to woiueu may disagree w ith cur
notions of propriety, we conclude that,
being required bj that first prerequisite
to greater h:.ppiue , t he law of freedom,
such a concession is unquestionably right
and good. Herbert Spencer.
kn Woanoa Nood Praiao.
Did you ever know the ardent admira
tion men have for white If a man be in
love with a woman, and baa not yet told
her, a white) frock raa!e of soft, pretty
material will make him tell her she ia the
most adorable woman on earth, and for
the moment it is one of those precious
illusions that form the charm of life.
Do women like these illusions Yes!
Yes! They make up for the many miser
able momenta of pretense; moments when
she looks the world in the face with smil
ing lips ami bright words. When among
the gay she is seemingly the gayest and
ail the while her eyes are full of unshed
tears over things w hich she cannot alter.
When she grows tired of hiding her true
feelings. In concealing her loves and her
hatreds. In covering her sorrows even her
lien sne tells you she really does not
care to go some place or get some particu
lar thing, aud all the time her whole being
is aching to be gratified. When she looks
back and regrets; looks forward and
dreads. When she strives to banish
thought and strangle memory; and all the
while her speech is tilled with mirth and
When her existence is colorless, which
she could alter but would not for some
one's sake. In such moments as these it is
that appreciates these little illusions.
Which please her for the moment and then
pass away, yet in passing leave a t race.
So be not ssmring in words that will lead
to them. Do not keep your precious words
locked as a miser does his coin; put them
in circulation. Ix-t them gftt worn, per
haps iu handling, but they will alw ays In
sure to bring happiness.
So when you see a woman with smiling
lips and sad lookingeyes, praiseherl That's
what she wants. She is starving for it
and her eyes are mutely begging for it.
And yet she hides it all and you are so
stupid you w ill not sve it.
Praise her even exceedingly. She will
not believe you, perhaps, but she likes it
and will bless you for it. Music and
Sweet Oil for Yours Children.
The valuo of sweet oil used in rubbing is
not generally appreciated. When a little
child has taken cold and seems restless
from the effects, nothing is more soothing
I than sweet oil rubbed into the skin, liefore
a warm fire, with a gentle pressure of the
hand. The oil should lie rublied on the
soles of the feet, down the lu k and neck
ami around th hips, and the little one
should Ik- carefully shielded from any draft
while this is done. Such a rubbing wiil
take the place of the daily bath at a time
when the child is suffering from cold, and
it is not advisable to expose it any more
than is necessary.
If the little one Las a cronpy cough and
shows signs of hoarseness, a thick flannel
saturated with sweet oil and sprinkled
w ith camphor, and heated as hot as the
child can licar it, should be hud over the
chest, high enough to extend around the
throat. It should le covered with another
flannel or a layer of cotton lalting tore
tain the boat. The heated flaunt 1 should
be changed for another as soon as it cools.
Hy this method the cold of a little child
may often be broken up and the most seri
ous disease averted.
The lungs anil breathing tubes of a little
baby are peculiarly delicate, and any child
during infancy is very liable to contract
serious discuses c.f the lungs from very
slight cause. The little one is also cured
by very simple remedies, and this layer of
riot oil acts as powerfully as a mustard
plaster on a grown up person. A child
that has Ix-cn suffering .seriously with a
cold one day, after carvful treatment of
this sort w ill often wake up the day after
with hardly a suspicion of illness. There
is no lietter laxative than sweet oil for
young child. New York Tribune.
