There is a very prettT quarrel up in
Wisconsin in the republican family, and
it is entitled; Hoard vs. Sawyer, 8pooner
At the congressional elections in 1890
there were 800.000 more democrats than
republican votes cast. And yet a re pub
lican stump-speaker is in favor of "tx
terminating the democratic party, root
and branch." It is difficult to imagine
how the minority will go about its exter
initiating process unless it pulls Iog .'ils
off the lecture platform and starts him
out on a biting expedition.
The time of the democratic state con
vention of Illinois has been fixed and the
democrats of Illinois will net be found
following the example of their New York
brethren anddisplayiogaspirit of antagon
ism to the time of the convention, but all
will unite in whatever conduces to the
best interests of the party. The conven
tion to name the candidates who are to
carry the state of Illinois at the next elec
tion is backed by a solid and united front.
In his speech at Lincoln, Gov. Boies
declared that the cause of democratic
victory in Iowa was the steady growth of
the party on two propositions:
1. Assertion of the fundamental prin
ciple of personal liberty invaded by the
republican party in procuring and seek
ing to maintain prohibitory liquor laws.
2. Revolt against excessive tariff taxa
tion maintained by the republican party
Those are good principles, as the In

A Pbetty valentine story cotr.es from
Quincy. A letter carrier and bis sweet
heart were the hero and heroine of this
tale. They loved each other but had net
come to an understanding. The mail
carrier mustered up courage and wrote a
letter to the young girl proposing mar
riage. He deposited the letter in the
postofflce and delivered it to her together
with other mail for the family. She gve
him a letter to mail and it proved to be
addressed to himself. After it had
passed through the postcffice according to
law, lei there was disclosed a leap year
proposal of marriage. Did ever two
hearts beat more in union and did ever
two souls possess but a single thought
more emphatically similar?
Justin MrCarthy'a Tribute to Women.
Justin McCarthy, M. I'., writing of wom
en in English politics, says: "Woman is
coming forward, because "she has some
thing to say which she feels ought to be
aaid. This is the strictly legitimate influ
ence of woman. It is the intelligence of
woman coming to the help of the intelli
gence of man. I am utterly unable to see
how this comradeship in the management
or affairs can either lower the dignity of
man or unsex the nature of woman."
"When Giving Away Handkerchiefs.
Handkerchiefs are a most useful present.
A pretty way of marking a man s handker
chief is to buy the finest of black working
cotton, such us is used for the outlines of
delicate doilies, and to copy his own signa
ture exactly. This may le done by tracing
from the original directly on the linen and
then copying the characters as well as the
form with the needle. Exchange.
Effects of "tirlp" on the Hair.
"The waves of 'grip' which have swept
over the country," says u physician, "have
noticably affected women's hair. The
most of my patients report a falling out of
the hair after their attacks of influenza.
This illustrates t he strong hold this malady
secures upon the human system. It is a
complete organic disturber." New York

Mrs. Fenwick Miller says she has studied

never worn a tress of fake hair as yet, but
he knows she hasn't courage enough to go
about with a bald head. Exchange.

VOLCANOES AND EARTHQUAKES.
Facta la Relation to ThM Violent Efforts
and Convulsions of Nature
The majority of the volcanoes are found
near, or at least at no very great distance
from, the sea, though volcanoes of later
ages ari limited to regions very different
from Uose in which volcauic action used
to be. For instance, in America we have
only vo canoes on the Pacific side, and the
Andes furnish several. S5exico. Central
Americ i and California possess many vol

BIRTH OF A VOLCANO.
Mount Flint. There are plenty of extinct
volcanoesin Europe, but the .Mediterranean
produce the active vents; aud about the
Ked sea uid the Caspian, and even in the
central chain of Asia, there are volcanoes
far from water. The Hawaii isles, on the
other hand, are all volcanic, and Austral
asia furnishes us with remarkable speci
mens; so altogether the testimony tends to
prove th:;t where volcanic remains are ap
parent tte sea had at one time been, or now
la, near at hand. There are about 270 vol
canoes at present in activitv: f our in
Europe; eleven in Iceland and Jan Mayen's
land; in Asia, ninety-three; in Africa.
twenty -six; forty-six in North America and
the Aleutian isles; twenty-seven in Central
America and the Antilles: in South Amer
ica, thirty-one; and twenty-four islands
with volc.mic tendencies largely developed.
There may lie many more "resting."
VoIcanc.es are openings or rents which
commuuii ate with the melted rock within
theearth, and the conical form of volcanoes
is owing t j the deposits of volcanic matter
as it falls from the opening called the
crater. Hie volcano builds its own hill,
aud inside the crater we find cones from
which smoke and steam issue. These cones
within the cone are the points of issue of
vapor ami smoke, immature volcanoes mak
ing up a w hole. The signs of eruption are
much the same, aud usually occur a couple
of days before the actual out break. First
smoke appears, perhaps, and the escape of
noxious gases accompanied by earth

which are the most destructive of natural
convulsion. The slow subsidence and
gradual upheaval of the land is still going
on, but we are frequently startled by the
account of a rupture of the ground or the
destruction ot a portion of a city.
The motion of the earthquake is gener
ally in a direct line, and undulating.
Sometimes what are termed vertical
shocks arise and destroy solidly built edi
fices. Mout tains have been overturned by
earthquake shocks, and trees have been
twisted aro.ind. Sometimes the ground
yawns into enormous fissures. The sea is
tossed into groat waves and encroaches
upon the Ian 1, and when the sea recedes
the recession of the water is followed by a
more terrible iuvading wave sweeping all
before it. Farth tremblings often occur
far away from volcanoes, and without any
visible connection with volcanic action.
Art! .tic Effects In Metal.
Artistic metal work cau be made as
prominent a feature in the scheme of deco
ration of a house or building, says The
Builder and Woodworker, as the wood
work, coloring or other elements of orna
mentation. Appreciation of this fact is in
creasing, and architects aud their clients
no lotiger consider the hardware and other
metal work of a building as a matter to lie
left to chance or to the option of the con
tractor, but v ell worthy of careful study,
the solution of which will have an impor
tant learing on the final result. A great
variety of woods are now employed, and
an almost ei.ual variety of metals and
metal finishes have recently become avail
able. In the proper selection of these, and
in the harmotiizitig f one with the other,
there is a large opportunity for the obtain
ingof beaut if ul effects.
Harden iiiR Duster or Paris.
A lxnilon e.vchange calls attention to a
process for hardening plaster of paris,
making that substance suitable for floor
ing purposes, communicated to the French
Academy of Science. The plaster is mixed
with one-sixth its weight of fine, freshly
slacked time. Mid used with as little water
as possible. After it is thoroughly dry it
is treated with a saturated solution of
either zinc sulphate or iron sulphate. With
the first the hardened plaster remains white,
while the second, by gradual oxidation,
yields the color of irou rust, which gives a
fine imitation .f mahogany under the ap

The of late much discussed question of
sterilizing watt r for the supply of cities by
means of electricity has again cropped up
in a paper by M r. R. Meade Hache, recent
ly read before t ie Americau Philosophical
society. Mr. I) iche has made a number of
experiments, w lich go to prove that a cur
rent of electricity sent through water de
stroys bacteria but, as in prior experi
ments by other, it is still doubtful whether
the liberated oxygen or the electricity it
self kills the germs. In any case the water
is at least pnrtu.lly sterilized.
