Tke democratic papers which are trying
to rend Senator BUI omt of the party had
better commence to hedge prettj soon, or
they may hare to swallow a large dish of
crow io one gulp.
Twenty two claims against Chili, filed
by members of the crew of the BaJtimere
wh suffered ir, juries at the hand of the
Valparaiso mob, aggregate f 1.135.000 and
10 additional claims, which will probably
swell the total to Eearly J2. 000,000, re
main to be filed. The amount is large,
but Chili ean much better tUrd to fay
it than she can to go to war.
Tbk Indianapolis Sentinel e&js that

Chicago next Monday, to determine
upen the time acd place for hold
ing the state conv. ntior. It may
not select a date which will meet

voter in the state, but we look for no re
monstrance to the call like that in New
Cosr.BEssMAX Fithian, of Illinois, on
the 3th icst, introduced a resolution in
structicg the committee cn ways and
meats to report a bill at an early day
placing all kinds of agricultural imple
ments n the free list. Mr.Fithian's
resolution is somewhat voluminous ami
opens by asserting that it has teen es
tablished by satisfactory evidence that
manufacturers of farm implements in the
United States are telling farm imple
ments in foreign countrits and to j ib
bers fcr expert for less than tie same
implements are sold to the farmer? of
this country. His fact, it says. has
been conclusively established by the fol
lowing answer of A B. Farquh&r, an sg
ricuitursl implement maker of York, Pa.
to the Ilome Market club:
"We do sell goods cheaper to custo
mers in foreign countries directly and to
jobbers for export than we tit to the do
mestic trade. This I coul 1 not truth
fully deny or csn.iidly conceal. You
would like to learn the process by which
the manufacturer can afford to sell the
foreign buyer goods for less than he can
the home customers? The reply is sim
plicity itself. We receive the prices cur
rent in the market in which we se 1. We
cannot get more and connot be expected
to take less."
The Sew York Convention.
The mugwumps and democratic friends
of ex-President C.eveland seem to be
making very little headway in New York,
notwitbstandirg the noise they are crea
ting regarding the "snap" convention, as
they term it. Up to yesterday 141 Hill
delegates were reported chosen through
out the state, against three anti-Hill.
The latest idea of the kickers, which is
on a par with the other nonsensical ones
evolved by the mugwump combination,
is to send its committee of 50 to Alb my
on the morning of Feb. 22, appear be
fore the democratic state central commit
tee, and ask that the convention be post
poned to a later dale. It is not at all
Iike.y that the state committee will
listen to the request, at least
it cannot consider it seriously
as all the delegates by that time will be
on the ground. In case of fa lure to sway
the Btate committee the malcontents an
nonnc they will hsld another convention
and send a contesting delegation to toe
national convention. This is the silliest
This pquibbleiu New York is not a
very pleasing sight to democrats else
where, no matter how edifying it my ap
pear to these engaged in it. The party
at large want unity not discord, and
unless the rumpus subsides materially
before the 21st of June, neither Mr.
Cleveland nor Mr. Hill will be very seri
ously considered as presidential candi
dates. In that event the nomination will
undoubtedly come to the west, and most
likely to Illinois, which would then be
the national battle ground instead ef
Aw Imprndlnz Danger.
The Philadelphia Press has found a
rather novel argument against the pro
posal for free wool nnd a reduction of
of the taril on woolen goods in the asser
tion that it would subject us to tbe hor
rors of cheap foreign made fabrics. It
Free wools is an issue so little under
stood by Mr. Springer himself that
the general public may be very easily mis
led about it. If carried out as the auth-
or of the t ill Intends, it means free wool
ens as mi ch and as certainly as it does
free wool. It means the wreck of fcU tbe
great structure of industries in wool nod
mixed fabtics built up daring the past 30
years, and a return to tbe use of the
cheapest f th so-called woolens tbe
flood of Et Rlish shoddies that came over
in the first years of tbe war. The mills
here conic1, not make woolens of any
class, even with free woolens as tbe
British make them.
This is indeed startling, as we have not
jet outgn wn the memory of the war
period, and very many people knew that
the "sbodd es" of that period were pro
duced by o ir patriotic American manu
facturers, under the beneficent prov e
ions of the war tariff. And there are few
Americans now who do not know that
very much lietter woolen gocds can be
bought for the same money almest any
where outsi le ef the United States than
can be had anywhere within them. If
there are any worse shoddies produced
anywhere than in this country the loca
tion cf the factory prcducirg them has
not yet bees pointed out. The Press is
also in distress concerning cheap carpet
woil It ssys:
We b&ve lmost ceased to buy the Rasa
sun or Don; koi, because the China pro
duct, whicn is more hsir than wool, U
much cbe kt acd makes the cheapest
carpel, rug and plush raaterisl. Under
free wool ; should fall to hi Asiatic
level at once, in the coarseness of stock
and the cruceness of the fabric, because
we would be forced to do eo.
We do use; great quantities of foreign
wool, and tie mills make money by its
use. For the last fiscal year ending June
30, 1S91. the imports of "fine wool were
32 230 935 pounds, of long wool 6.G6T.
OOO pounds nnd of Asiatic wool 9J.4U-J,-6iK
pounds ia all 129 3 3.64 poands.
Most of this was fn.m China and led a
ana for carpet making.
It dies not mention, however, as the
Im'ianap. lis Sentinel observes, that this
importation is an increase of atout 30.-
OOO.OOO pounds per annum, and that it is
occurring under the provisions of tLe
MtKinley bil , whose ot jct was to shut
out foreign wools. It is tot easy to im
agine how we could 'fa'i to the Asiatic
level" much faster than we have been
filling unrie: this won.ltrful protective
measure, as is here admitted bv tbe
Pres. We hive advanced to a condition
waere our m lis 1 use great quantities of
fo-eign wool, and the mills make mccey
by its use," at d yet the trice of domestic
wsois has fallen, the market has decreased
and tbe consumption in manufacture has
lessened. With these facts staring th m
in the face the wool growers of this
country have reason te suspect that the
wx.l lariH is not just what it is repre
sented to be . They have reason to
think that the manufacturers have taken
them in. W.thoul djubt that tariff
makes profit f r seme one, but if any far
mer can shew wherein he is benefited
we should l:ke to hetr from him.

Younn la'Vii-- ;T7lit sfcy f mo. They say
that I am so wirn-t'nb!. On iny honor,
it is only l-r.t:ise I am truthful that they
think me x; mor nt'.i-ti'ive man to the

However. n t lnn I met with a
voting I:y wl n -.ijil that she jrreatly ad
minii my hnn..r;i(i!e .-uij truthful nature.
It a Midi rn e.!iat.iil:iiary tiling for me
to have my In thfuine-s euio-izel that I
immediately ft-. 1 in love with her. and all
wcrit smoothly until one ilay she said:
''!) you thi-ik Mi Champion is very
L'rl looking, lutnr-''
I nm.-t tell you that she was a little
jealous of Mi s C. as retards myself,
though there vas nothing whatever be
'"I think she isexceeiliiily tri)-l looking,
La'ira." I repli si.
My dear one lonke.l vexed. joi!teil and
then asked coquetti-hly:
' Do you thin -i she is as co.nl looking a
I am, dear?''
I knew wh.it I oncrht to have said what
she would natirally look for me to say;
but I grazed terderlyat her and told tbe
truth the fatil truth:
"Miss Champion is better looking than
you, my own pet: but. of course"
She rushed a vay lief-irt; I had fini-lnil,
and the next day I n-i-eive I the little pres
ents I had pv .fl her, ae;-onijiaaied by a
curt note advisi iu me to marry Miss C, as
I admired her si greatly.
l-iuri never made it up with me; and
now I am a bit ken hearted man, and all

A Hotel tlerk Kxperlfnce.
"Hotel work i:i former days was ri-ky
enough," said X. W. A. I.yman at the Kin
dell. "I was on -e a manager in Memphis,
and will t'ive . slight experience I had:
There was a rv-tauraut attached to the
hotel in ijuestit n. ami we were about to
close once, an hi ur aft r the midnight bells
had chimed. At that moment a man came
in and linked if i e could have supper. All
the waiters ha. troiie except one. I ex-plnim-d
the siti atioii to the visitor, but
told him I wouk. do my best tooblitre him,
and went to prepare a dish of ham and
egrs. The ham ind e;t;s looked tempting
as 1 brought the u out smoking, or as you
heard them hissi in the pan. for t benight
was bitterly cult. The nuest, who was a
threat big and rat her brutal looking ft llo-v,
was not satisfied and made some uncompli
mentary remarks about the cooking, which
showed he wantr 1 a quarrel.
"He told me he would not pay for the sup
per, and I answered that I was determined
be should at the iroper time. I was in the
kitchen when tu i little darky run in with
a look of terror ia his face, crying. 'Massa,
he has a -run!' I quietly went to my room,
where I had a good bulldog revolver, and
when I came iliwn I went with the soft,
footed step of a ci t up to his tajde. (iettin?
behind him, I put the muzzle to his jaw
and told him to hand me his gun and to
nut out one dol ar for the supper. 'You
Lave the drop on Tie.' he said, and immedi

left soon afterw,-rd. He would have had
satisfaction with mt anj mistake, and I

Two Well Known 51 cn Who Owed Tnelr
Grratnraa Largely to Friend.
Charles Darwin largely owed his great
fame to an early companionship. His
father, hoping that his son would become
n physician ar a minister, sent him to col
lege, but soon became discouraged with his
seeming indifference, and said: "You care
for nothing but shooting, dogs and rat
catching, and you will be a disgrace to
yourself and all your family." At Cam
bridge Charles became very fond of Pro
fessor Healow, a man with great knowl
edge of botany, entomology, chemistry,
mineralogy and geology. The two took
long walks together, and Charles became
known as "the man who walks with Hens
low." Darwin said years later of this model
teacher: "When I reflect how immediately
we felt at ease with a man older, and in
every way immensely our superior, I think
it was as much owing to the transparent
sincerity of his character as to hU kind
ness of heart, and perhaps even still
mere to a highly remarkable alisence in
him of all self consciousness. One per
ceived at once that he never thought of
his own varied knowledge or clear intellect,
but solely on the subject in hand. Another
charm which must have struck every oije
was that his manner to old and distin
guished persons and to the youngest stu
dent was exactly tbe same, and to all he
showed the same winuimz courtesy. He
would receive with interest the most tri
rlinir observation in any branch of natural
history, and however absurd a blunder one
miL:ht m ike, he pointed it out so cleat ly
and kindly that one left him in noway dis
heartened, but only determined to be more
accurate the next time."
Through this friend Darwin had the op
portunity of taking a four years" voyage in
the ship De-agle as a r.p.turalist. Henslow
being a friend of the captain, whi :h period
Darwin said determined his whole tareer.
Out of the years grew the wonderful
'"Origin of -Species," the result of twenty
yt ars of lalwr. Out of these y. ars grew
his other famous books, translated into
French. German. Italian, Dutch, Russian.
wcdNh and many other language, and
such a world wide n-puhition as made him
a mem ber of over seventy of the Uaraed
societies of the w orld.
The izrcat Humtioldt furnishes another
remarkable instance of the jKiwer of con
formity. Kith, prominent, restless, at
nin,teen he had never heard of botany, and
yet through a friendship Iwnrae oue of the
most di-tintcui-hisl of l'tan:-;s.
He said: "Of the s, ,,f botany I
never so much i.- l.-.-inl till I formed the
acquaintance in lt of Herr Wiildenow, a
youth of lay own aire, who had just been
piiblisbinga'-Flortu f Berlin. "' His gentle
r.T.d aiiiiable chamctir stimulated thtiii-t'-rv.-t

Tea is a I,;.cd lx-verage. I do not
know what 1 should do without it. But
there is tea and tea; and one of the te.is
which 1 have in my mind is the representa

I co .tlut town a vroixl deal holding con
sultations here and there, and about 5
o'eloi k. wh- n I get into a place, the lady of
the house will say to me, "Sir Andrew, you
look so tired, do let me give you a cup of
tea."' I say, "Thank you very much." But
the tea has stood lor half an hour; and she
remarks, "I know jou do not like it strong.
Sir Andrew." and then she puts altout a
tabiespoonful of t'.-a into the cup and fills it
up with wat-r.
Now. I call it positive cruelty to give
tea like t hat to anv IkkIv, and 1 hojHf you
gentlemen will always set your face against
such a leverage. Tea to be ustftll should

tea which is Ijt-ing cultivated has become
so powerful in its etTe.-ts upon the nervous
system that a cup of it taken e-arly in the
morning, as m;uiy people do. so disorders
the nervous system that those who takeit
actually c -t into a state of tea intoxica
tion, and it produces a form of nerve dis
turbance winch is lmr-t painful to witness.
If you want to have, either for yourselves
or for your patients, tea which will not in

China tea, putting in the right measure
the old fashioned tea-spoonful for each per

It is said that the Japanese practice re
