ing state. In England, UDder free trade,

facturing establishments get ?6 50 ptr

Proof of this statement would be much
more satisfactory than the Press, assur
ance of its truth. But tranting it, it is
a strong argument in favor of free raw
mattrials, something to which the Press
is opposed. There can be little doubt
that if hides were taxed instead of Doing
on the free list, the pay of the boot and
shoe operatives of Massachusetts would
be considerably lower than it is. The
more manufacturers must pay for their
materials, and the more active the com
petition between thtm, the less the re
ward of labor.

Has Gen. Alger necn masquerading in
false garments? He bag sung the songs ot
the war and waved the bloody shirt ever
aince peace was proclaimed and incidental
lj hinted something about his brilliant war
record. But EJitor Dana, of the New
York Sun, who was assistant secretaiy of
war under Stanton, says Alger is little
less than a deserter. Gen. Alger makes
a general denial, but that hardly fills the
bill. Mr. Dna gives days and dates ami
produces an order from Gen. Sheridan to
back up his charge. Gen. Alger must
answer it fully and more satisfactorily or
withdraw himself from public notice
The full text of Mr. Dana's accusation is
What Is this about Gen. Russell A
Alger, of Michigan, as republican canli
date for president on a platform of
patriotism and pensions?
The various biographies of Gen. Alger
dwell mare in detail upon the beginning
of his military seryices than on the end .
lie was major in the second Michigan
cavalry, Gen. Sheridan's old regiment.
Oct. 16, 1863, he was promoted to be
liutenant-coloncl of the sixth Michigan
cavalry. Subsequently, he was trans
ferred to the fifth Michigan cavalry and
became its colonel .
In September, 18C4 Col. Alger and his
regiment were in the Shenandoah vailey,
taking pari in Sheridan's great campaign
against Jubal Eirly .
About the first of that month Col.
Alger applied for 10 days' leave of ab
sence. The application was disapproved
and returned to bis division commander,
Gen. Wesley Merritt. because of the tc
tire operations then in progress. Upon
the return of his application for leave
disapproved, Col. A'gtr left his regiment
and went to Washington without leave
There he procured a detail on court-mir-tijl
duty in that city.
This fact was reported to Gen Merritt.
who returned it in turn to Gen. Sheridan
who brought the matter to the attenti n
of the war department, recomnnxdii g
that Gen. Alger be dishonorably dis
charged from the service for being absent
In cansequence of that recommenda
tion from Philip II. Sheridan. (J.il. Rus
sell A. Alger was discharged from the
srrvice ept 20, iyt4.
The record does not r;ad that he wan
"dishonorably discharged." The pun
ishment reco-nmended by Gen. Sheridia
was softened and he was merely dis
charged. This incident terminated bis
military career. After the war was oyer
he procured in some way the brevet of

Swift and Silent A Rat Business.
The man who took the contract for the
ertermina' ion of the Smuts Zeitung rats
was "born into the business," and for the
last thirty five years he haa kept a quaint
little place in Fulton stretit. Adolph Isaac
sen is his i anie, and he is still to be found
in his stom daily, though his son Charles
has succeeled him in active business. Sur
rounded by his traps, ferrets and fox ter
riers, the old man is full of interesting
reminiseetices, and is always happy when
he can tell of some of his experiences in his
rat catching trips, which have taken him
all over the country from coast to coast.
"What is the first tiling you do w hen you
go to a pi ice to kill off the rats" he was
asked the other day. "Ah, that is a good
question. I see I must In-Kin at the begin
ning. V 11, we ask Kate where the rats
are. You know w ho Kate is? Well. Kate
is the finest fox terrier for that purpose in
the whole country. I've owned ln r for ten
years, mid she is 11 years old, and what she
doesn't ki ow alioiit rats isn't worth know
ing. Ah soon as she Rets in the place she
snilTs around. W hen she locates a plac"
whore th . rats have come out she jut
turns her head to lite and was her tail.
Then I know she lias found the place. .She
doesn't birk or growl, for she knows as
well as 1 do that we mustn't make a bit of
noise or g 't excited. We want to kill the
rats, not scare them.
rK ok i:at oil.
"Then when we locate all the holes we
set traps to catch one. if there are many
rats. If there are not so very many rats
we use n different method, which I will
explain 1; ter. The trap we use is the dou
ble jaw u ime trap which is iimmI for small
came. As soon as a rat is caught we kill
it and take it out and set the trap for all
ot her. foi we watch the place all through
the night (we always work at night) when
we catch rats."
"Hut h iw do you bait the trails?"
"We ! n't. Now I'll tell you a secret of
the trade We use rut oil, which we make
as follows: We boil nlmitt lot) rats in a
large ko tie, and skim ofT the oil which
rises to t le top. This oil is very pungent,
and prov -s a great attraction. We oil each
trap with just a few drops f it. and that
is unite enough to lure them on."
And then this modern pied piper said:
"Do you know that we cm make the rats
go to the traps? Well, we can. We-walk
across tl e room, and after awhile the rats
follow i i o.t footsteps. Hut it isn't so
wonderf il w ion you know the trick. We
simply rub a iVwdri.ps of the oil on the soles
of our shoes and drag our feet as we walk
toward t he traps. See?"
"Tell me what you do when there areu't
Well we take ferrets along in a case
like th;t. After Kate linds the holes we
stop up all bnt two. Kate, she watches
one. SI e's as good as a man, she is. And
one of r ly men watches the other. Then
the fern ts are put in, anil pretty soon the
rats beg u to move out.
IIANI'I.IM; wild uats.
"Any rat that conies out at Kate's place
is a dead rat that instant. One bite set
tles it. But the man can't bite them. Do
you know what he does? Why, he simply
holds his hand uear the hole and the rat
walks tight iuto it. I fe doesn't grab it
thi n or hit it. That would make it squeal
and bite.- No. sir; he simply lifts his hand
gently vith the rat in it, holding the ani
mal as he would a bird. And the rat never
moves i or gets frightened. Il will lie in his
hand at d never show light or fear. 1 le can
stroke i". and pet it a-, if it were a kitten.
You don't lielieve that young man. do you?
Come n w. that smile shows me you think
this is a w hopper. Hut I assure you it 's
quite true. There's soniel hing iilxuit some

"Why, I've often done it myself, though,
mind jou, I don't say I could do it now,
offhand, lietause I haven't tried it for a
long time, and it nil depends on the artful
touch. But my son t'hurley here can do it.
Can't you, Charley? And my four men can
do it. They never think anything of it.
Now, d n't you see what an advantage this
U? There is no noise of clubbing or squeal
ing. 1 he rat is simply tossed to Kate, and
she never gives it a chance to squeal. She
sends ii to rat heaven too quickly for that.
This is important, for if there i.s any noise
or excitement it settles rat, catching for
that n ght. They're cute fellows, these
GREAT HAT SLAUGHTER.
"What big catches have we made? Well,
the biggest catch 1 ever made was down iu
North Carolina. I won't say where, but it
was a big hotel in that stale. The rooms
and especially the kitchen 'were overruu
with perfect swarms of rats which came
from ;he mountains, and the hills and
country for half a mile around the hotel
were owned by the ugly brutes. I hud the
contra :t to kill them and brought four
men aloug with four of my best terriers.
"Will, sir. the first night we killed 1,500
rats. The whole town turned out to see
them. Well. I kept '-"0 alive, and next
evening I invited a party to an empty
room, where I had put two big cages hold
ing th.s rats. The caue doors were so ar
ranged that they could lie opened sinml

four d gs were brought iu, and after the
doors H ere eiosed the eags were suddenly
opened. Out poured a swarm of brown
rata. Tliink of it. 2D0 in one room. They
crowded into two corners, and in less than
five minutes those four terriers had killed
"Well, the joke of the story was that one
man l ad brought his father, who was old
and a bit nearsighted. When the circus
was over and I asked t he old man how he
liked it, he said with surprise that he
hadn'- seen anything, and wanted to know
whetl er it was over. The dogs had done
their work so swiftly and silently, and
with so little fuss, that he never suw the
thing done." New York Tribune.

There are now four monkeys at Lincoln
park. They are in possession of a strange
playfellow, whom they are utilizing as
only a monkey's ingenuity can suggest.
Adjoining their cage stands another con
taining a large number of white rats. For
many months the pink eyed rodents have
excited a great ileal of inquisitiveness on
the part or their four neighbors. The
monkeys have spent the greater portion of
their time peering at the rats, and the lat
ter have exhibited a similar interest in the
monkeys. A week ago the keeper trans
ferred the largest white rat in the cage to
the monkeys' den. to see. what would be
the effect of the nearer companionship.
When the rat made his advent into the
monkey's cage the cunning animals
screamed with delight, but none of them
made the slightest effort to harm the vis
itor. On the contrary, they showed a
marked willingness to share their food with
the newcomer, and the rat was allowed to
With a reluctance born of distrust, the
monkeys hesitated for along time In-fore
cultivating a closer friendship. Finally,
one afternoon, while the rat was fust asleep
beneath the trapeze, which is suspended
from the middle of the cage, the most in
quisitive monkey in the cage cautiously
lowered himself from it by his tail. A lit
tle black paw was extended and five tawny
lingers hesitatingly stroked the rat's soft
fur. It seemed to answer his expectation,
and in a few moments a fast friendship had
been formed, and there was harmony among
One after the other the monkeys fondled
the rat in their arms and stroked its fur.
They would climb with it to the highest
perch of their cage, but not once did they
drop it or show the least inclination to
harm their pet. Monkeys and rat ate from
the same dish, and frequently a sedate old
fellow- would interrupt his own meal to
give a choice morsel to his little white com
panion or tostroke his back, as the monkey
family gathered together around the dish.
This state of affairs continued for sev
eral days, until in an unfortunate moment
for the rat, at least a new use was
found for it. Monkeys, like human beings,
delight in comfort. The monkey cage is
not fitted up with cushioned seats, and the
occupants seemed to long for a life of ease.
After much apparent thinkingand scratch
ing of ears, one old monkey decided to util
ize the rat for a cushion. He gently
placed the rat on the floor of t he cage and
sat on it. The rat did not move in fact,
he seemed to enjoy Uie new use to which
he had been placed and the intelligent
monkey chattered with delight. The rest
tried it, and they wi re equally pleased.
From that day tin! il now the white rat
has served as a scat for the monkeys, who
become almost frantic when an attempt is
made to remove their luxury. They have
continued to lie as kind and gentle with
their pet as ever and, since the rat seems
to lie none the worse for the jieculiar use
to whi' h he has been put, he has been al
lowed to remain.
Visitors at the Zoo spend much time
watching the queer proceedings, and at al
most ar.y time o:ie can find a demure mon
key seated upon the patient rat scratching
his ear or picking his teeth in sagacious
monkey meditation. Chicago Tribune.
Q-iite an audible smile at the expense ot
Cu.nso and lady was created not many
evenings since. The occasion was a fancy
dress ball given by the Cnesus club, ft
was understood that the members were to
dress in character, and a footman was sta
tioned at the door of the main salon to
announce to the company within the differ
ent characters as i hey entered.
Young Cuniso. being the son of a mil
lionaire and n golden light of the Croesus,
enjoyed the freedom of the club salons,
and having been able to find no masquerade
dress quite up to ins fanry he had con
cluded to appear in his usual attire, and
likewise his Constance Beatrice, daughtei
of old Barnacle Bullion, hung upon hi
arm iu her fetching evening dress of dia
monds and loec and the rest of it.
"What characters shall I announce?"
asked the usher as Cuniso approached.
"We don't trouble ourselves with char
actcrs tonight," said the newcomer.
Cuniso and Miss Bullion entered, and
their advent was announced in steutorian
tones by the usher:

characters:" New York Ledger.

"The presumptuousness of some people
is past endurance," remarked a lady recent
ly in conversation. "I allowed my little

and when she re turned her little ears had
licen pierced and a pair of earrings hung iu
them. I looked upon it as an unwarranted
piece of impertinence and the preseut of
the rings did not reconcile me to it in the
"That reminds me," said another lady,
"of my experience with meddlers for I
cannot call them anything else. I sent my
little daughter out to w alk with a friend,
who, because the child complained of a
slight toothache, took her to a dentist and
had two of her baby teeth pulled. When
I remonstrated she said she had paid the
bill. It was the loss of the teeth and the
fact that anybody dare meddle with my
privileges that 1 regretted. Who could
forgive such stupidity?" Detroit Free
Lanib Conrd of Samara.
In n liook called "The Duke of Holstein's
Travels Into Persia and Muscovy," pub
lished in lO-IO, tin re is an account of a curi
ous vine product called the "lamb gourd,"
whic h runs as follows: "In the neighbor
hood of Samara, Russia, there grows a
gourd w hich closely resembles a lamb iu
all its members. It changes place in grow
ing as far as the stalk will reach, and
wheresoever it turns the grass withers and
dies. This change of the gourd plant the
Muscovites call 'feeding.' They further
say that when it riens the stalk withers,
and that the outward rind of the gourd is
then covered with a sort of wool, which
they use instead of fur."
Scaliger also makes mention of the lamb
gourd, and says that it grows until the
grass fails and that it then dies for want of
nourishment. He also says that the wolf
is the only animal that will feed upon it.
