Mr. ferla;er' Wool Hill.
Frjm the Chicago Tribone (Rep).
The bill to revise ibe wool arm woolens
chedules of the tariff law is at last in a
shape which satisfies the majority of the
committee on ways and means. . Raw
wool is pat on the free list, but waste and
shoddy pay a duty of 30 per cent. The
specific duties on woolens, put on to com
pensate the manufacturers for the duties
on the raw wool, are swept away, and the
aid valorem protective duties are cut down
to a little less than was proposed by the
Hills bill, the average being 85 per cent
Instead of the 40 per cent of tne measure
If mis bill goes through the house in its
present form and the senate defeats it the
democrats will be provided with a strong
Issue on which to make their presidential
fight this summer and fall. For such
a bill would benefit 99 per cent of the
American people. It would raise
rather than reduce the price of American
wool, especially of the finer kinds, and
would stimulate production. L'ndcr the
McKinley law tbe price has gene down
S or 4 cents a pound. This is not what
was promised the wool grower in 1890.
and tbey are disappointed and disgusted.
There are stid to be a million of these
growers. Nine hundred thousand of
them bave ltss than 25 sheep apiece,
which tbey raise rather fcr mutton and
to keep down the weeds, than for the
fleeces. Those whs depend on tbe
fleeces for a living number but a few
thousand, and are found mainly in Tex is
and tbe arid states and territories be
yond the hundredth degree of longitude.
The owners of the small flocks would de
rive a much greater benefit from tbe
cheapening of their woolen clothing and
blankets and the improvement of tbe
cloth by lessening tbe quantity of cotton
and home made shoddy with wtich it is
adulterated than they could gain by any
possible rise in tbe price of their fleeces
through laws drafted by Lawrence and
the other Ohio ram rai-ers.
Unless wool should advance considers
ably this spring, of which there is ne in
dication, very few wool growers will ob
ject to tbe repeal of tbe useless and in
jurtOB.9 woo) schedule of tbe McKicLy
law. Tbey were tc'd unequivocally that j
the higher duties would add to the selling
Value of tceir fleeces . Such has not been
tbe ess?, and tbey are sick of the "Oaio
If no wool bill is passed and tbe mar
ket remains as dull as it is now the dem
ocrats will declare from thousands of
stumps and in thousands of papers that
the wool and woolen schedules of the
present law are a nuisance of no value
to manufacturer or sheep raiser, and tbe
cause f great loss to the consumers
of woolen clothing. A great many sf
the voters will be inclined to believe
these statements. Probably nothing
would t lyase the democrats more than to
see tbe republicans take up tbe cndgels in
defence of the blundering work of tbe
Ohio ram raisers and make it one of the
leading issues in tbe coming contest.
The Manufacturer of Cutlery
Their Own Tariff.
The Association of American Manu
facturers of Cutlery asked permission of
the ways and means committee to pro
pose a schedule on cutlery for tlie Mo
Kinley bill. Their request was grranted,
and the duties which they wanted were
enacted into law. These duties, com
pared with those of the tariff of 1833,
are as follows:
Value per doz. Per ct.
60c or leas SO 12c. per doz.
& 50pcrct. 71 plus.
Cue to $1.50 SO 50c. per doz.
& 50 per ct. 83 plus.
$L50to$3. SO $1 per doz.
& 50 per ct. 83 plus.
S3 SO $2 per doz.
& SO per cL 116 mi ana.
How this trust or association, as they
politely call themselves, has taken ad
vantage of the new duties is shown by
the following letter of a cutlery dealer:
I notice in your issue of the 8th instant
a letter from X and Y, relative to a
statement which appeared in the Press
that "no one has heard of any advance
in prices of cutlery in consequence of
the McKinley bill." It is a well known
fact that about the time this bill went
into effect the Association of American
Manufacturers of Cutlery was holding
frequent sessions in New York with the
view to "reirnlating prices, and as a
result of their conferences 1 submit
some fiirures jrivinjr the details of a few
patterns of American knives as follows,
the prices I paid for them prior to Oct.
8, 18W), and that which was fixed by the
association at various times afterward:
Price prior to
Oct.8,D0. Oct.lO.W. Oct.lS.m JanS.HL
$1.65 per dozen 1.73 jL'.UO
Zl per dozen.... 3.10 3.47 3.50
8.75 per dozen 3.H5 4.U5 4.AA
4.25 per dozen.... 4.50 5.13 6.7U
7.65 per dozen.... 8.45 8.00 10.00
These are no special cases, but a sim
ilar advance took place over the whole
line of several hundred patterns, and as
the ""McKinley bill became operative
Oct. 6, 1890, it is significant that within
four days a marked increase in Amer
ican goods was announced. When tliry
reached the January prices I had but
little interest in them, as 1 was con
vinced that the burden bearing consum
er would rebel and either wake the old
knife whittle a little longer or go with
out if asked to purchase at the retail
prices which would pay the dealer a
profit on the above costs.
As an indication of the "we-are-on-top"
position which the Association of
American Cutlery Makers assumed, I
will add that I was solicited to purchase
goods at the advanced prices with the
guarantee that if, within a reasonable
time, I could buy from any member of
the association at less price, 1 should be
reimbursed any excess I had paid.
FILV WITH A CIKCUS.
PLAYlJL RETALIATION OF AN IN
Thm Ticket Seller Bad Worked the "Film
flaws" Game oa Him ml Wten the
Visitor Objected Firearms Were Called
Into TJao Great Sport for Some.
"Hate 1 seen you fellows since I was in
Marico jaf " asked McCormick as he lighted
a cigar. McCormick sells firearms in Ari
zona, New Mexico and Colorado.
'l got to Gila City, and heard there was
a circus at Maricopa, and thought I'd take
it in, for I wanted to nell a bill at Stanwix,
and mi ;ht do something la Maricopa too.
1 dont know as you fellows ever saw a
circus in tbe southwest. You wouldn't
know it Every man in the show's a walk
ing arsenal baa to be in that country.
And the man in tbe ticket wagon baa guns
on all tides of him. It's merely a matter
of preponderance of shooting weapons
which survives after circus time tbe show
or the iwpulace. This show had been in
Maricopi ten days, and there hadn't been
any trouble to speak of. One man from the
bills had been killed at the ticket wagon in
s dispute over tbe right change, but he'd
been warned if he asked for that flveragain
he'd get plugged. He did ask. with his
gun, but he missed somehow, and he was
plngged. Then they carried the corpse
around the ring on tbe Iwck of theelepbant
ht tbe grand procession, as a solemn warn
Ing to oil er disputatious hayseeds.
"The ft ct was they had a grafter in their
wagon. Maybe yon never saw a grafter
"Never did.'" said James.
HO THK "GRAFTER" WORKS.
"Well, you see. there's always a mob
around the ticket wagon, ami holding up
their hards, flourishing bills and gold
pieces, an i howling for tickets greasers,
Injnns, cowboys, miners, ranchers, gam
blers, every kind you can think of. The
ticket sel er the grafter has a few one
dollar bilU wound around his middle fin
ger, bo thf t the ends coine together, and it
looks as tl ough he had twice as many bills
as be has. A granger comes up for a ticket,
hands over a five dollar bill, the grafter
slaps dowi the ticket, thumbs over the
ends of fear bills, in plain sight of the
farmer, w.iips tbem out from under his
finger, roll tbera and hands tbem down.
Nine times out o' ten the hayseed gratis the
money, stuffs it in his pocket, and elbows
out of the rowd before trying to count tbe
change. Tben he rinds out that he has
only two oi e dollar bills, when he thought
he saw tbe ticket seller count hint out
four. Well, he goes back with fire in his
eye, but it loen't do him any good. Any
how, it did i't seem to the day 1 was up to
Maricopa. I was just getting "near the
ticket wagon myself, when one o' these
rustics thiit'd had the flimflam game
played on him came rushing up and
squeezed th -ough the gang. "You tarnal
thief." he says to the grafter, 'gi'me my
money, will your'
"The ticket man just looked at him ont
o' the corner of his eye and went on sell
ing until t.ie sucker began to yell rob
bersf and things, when he shouted: "Get
out o' here! You can't play that game
with this su lcus.'
" 'But. blast your carcass, I gave you a
tenner, and here's only four dollars back.
Cuss me if I 11 pay more'n a dollar for any
" 'You're crazy, old man; move along
now out o' the crowd, or you'll get hurt.'
THK FARMER WORSTED.
"That seemed to annoy the farmer, for
quicker'n sett be put three bullets through
the wagon window to ease bis mind, and
the grafter l;gan to pepper back, rather
regardless of the promiscuous crowd. I
skipped off to the gold chariot at one side,
got behind it big wooden angel on one
corner of it, ..nd staid there where I could
look out with little danger of getting a
pellet. Hut t hey stopped shooting pretty
soon. You ste, the grafter had two men in
the wagon who grabbed their guns the
minute tbe fuss began, and blazed away at
the old man, while the grafter bad settled
down to selliLg tickets again. The rustic
saw the odds were against him and he lit
out, swearing veugeauce. He had only a
scratch on the shoulder, but a stoutcopper
colored old lady from over the bonier inad
vertently got tietween him and one of the
slugs from tb ticket wagon, and didu't
live to see the show. Her husband was
disposed to fin 1 fault, but the grafter apolo
gized and paw-ed him in free, so he made
np bis mind to let bygones be bygones.
"1 think it was just after the big bare
back act that everybody in the tent sud
denly heard j.;uns popping outside. But
tbe clown wa just coming into tbe ring,
and we didn't pay much attention to the
matter until & usual bullets began to inter
fere with the comfort of the audience; and
when tbe clow n himself was bowled over
and bad to tie carried out on a banner, a
good many people became so interested in
the proceedings outside that tbey paid
little attention to the performance. Then
all at once theie was a commotion near the
dressing tent e ntrance and a pack of thirty
mounted cowtoys galloped into tbe ring.
The old hayseed was at the head of them,
and every mau bad his fireworks out and
ready for business.
OETT1SG EVEN WITH THE TICKET SELLER.
"As you fellows know I've traveled for a
firearms bouse for twenty years and hare
bandied weapons by the thousands, but
when it comes to a front view of shooting

citizens. I'm disposed to retire from busi

ful mood and wouldn't kill any one in tbe
audience without serious provocation.
After this preliminary sport tbey forced
every performer to come in and entertain

A Chines Crowd. ,
At svey spot a Chinese crowd is interesting,
and ws sat for half aa hour or so watch
ing the people streaming past as through
the narrow streets. There is, it is said, no
nation in the world whose features give
more appearance of composure and want
of expression than the Chinaman.- To
guess of what , he may be thinking, or
whether his thoughts are happy or other
wise, or even if he is thinking at all, I be
lieve to be an impossibility; he wears a
mask as impenetrable as iron. The women
are the same, except that they smile now
and again more, it seems, because they
know it is becoming than from any motive.
The female of the Yangtse is preferable
to her sisters of the coast, for, as a rule,
she does not, except in the cases of the
wives of wealthy men, follow the fashions
sufficiently conscientiously to deform her
feet, though the large footed lady ss she
approaches those of the ."lily feet" may
overhear such remarks and nastiness is
apparently common all over the world as
these, "Look at those two big boats com
ing along," or "Here come two old ducks"
the boats and ducks referring to tbe lady
in question's natural sized feet.
The subject is a nasty one, and so cov
ered, as a rule, are their cramped ankles
with sores that the removal of the bandages
with which the contraction is maintained
is a most unpleasant process. The diffi
culty and discomfort of the victim in get
ting about, and the hideous waddling gait
small feet necessitate, ought, one would
think, from common sense, to abolish the
custom, but the Chinaman wishes to abol
ish nothing except the European and Eu
ropean influence, and this he finds diffi
cult. Blackwood's Magazine. .
Hypnotization of Birds and Animals.
I take a cock and I repeat on it what is
known as the experimentum mirabile of
Kirchen; it is fresh from the barnyard
and a very pugnacious animal. If I hold
it it struggles and screams, but I have
only to place it quietly and firmly on a
board and draw a chalk line from its beak,
which I have depressed until it touches
the board, and it remains firmly hypno
tized. It is motionless, or, as people would
say, fascinated; and it will remain in this
position for in indefinite time. I take a
rabbit and adjust it on its back in a little
trough, which is only used to prevent it
from falling over, and it also becomes rap
idly hypnotized. The same thing happens
with a guinea pig or a frog, or even with a
young alligator. The limbs are plastic,
can lie moved in any direction, and stay in
the position in which they are placed.
!so, also, with a number of other animals.
such as birds and crayfish. Hatting
states that if this experiment le frequent
ly repeated with a fowl it will often be
come permanently paralyzed in some of its
limbs. If I take UP the hvpnotized rabbit
or lift the cock, thev at once become active
and come out of their hypnotic into their
natural state. Position, tactile impres
sion, are the means used here to produce
hypnotism and possibly also mental im
pression. Visual impression produces sim
ilar effects. Richet has produced similar
effects with a lime light to those which
Charcot produces on his hypnotic, catalep
tic and hysterical patients. Ernest Hart
in Nineteenth Century.
The Secret of a Good Memory.
Whatever may be said in regard to train
ing the memory, it must be remembered
that memory is not, as used to be sup
posed, an independent faculty of the mind
that in some mysterious way may be direct
ly strengthened by exercise, as the black
smith strengthens his arm, but that mem
ory as retentive is due to the plasticity of
nerve substance and to the property of
nerve centers by which they retain in
growth their functional modifications, and
that recollection depends upon physiolog
ical conditions such as the cerebral circula
tion and tbe proper functioning of nerve
cells; moreover, that a complete act of rec
ollection is a complex process involving
comparison, inference, and the like.
Hence, whatever in general is conducive
to vigorous health, and whatever tends to
habits of clear and orderly thinking, such
condit ions will aid recollection. And what
ever is detrimental to the normal function
ing of the nerve cells fatigue, intense
emotion or the like and whatever blinds
the judgment, will hinder recollection. In
short, all psychological beatitudes are on
the head of him who has good health, sane
emotions and trained power of attention.
But no amount of study, nor all the pre
scriptions of mnemonic doctors, except so
far .is they train attention, can atone for
anaemia of body or lack of the power of at
tention. Professor W. II. Burnbam in
An English Idea of New Yorkers.
A young woman returned from abroad
comments on the crass ignorance which
educated English people still have about
us. "I met," she says, "just before I sailed
for home, a party of English ladies. They
were extremely affable and polite, and
showed great interest in me when they
found out I was a New Yorker.
" 'Oh,' said one of them, with consider
able enthusiasm, 'we know all about
America. We've some relatives over there.
You go to market in a cart, and all that.
It must lie great fun.'
"It transpired that the relatives were on
a ranch, aud though I endeavored to ex
plain thut ranch customs were peculiar to
ranches and that persons in New jiork and
other places iu America did not go to mar
ket in a cart, I could see that their views
were not shaken." Her Point of View in
New Y'ork Times.
Big English Oaks.
The largest oak now standing in Eng
land is the "Cowthorpie," which measures
seventy-eight feet in circumference at the
ground. At one time this tree and its
branches covered more than au acre of

Oak" in Clipstone park, Ixndon, is be
lieved to be 1 ,500 years old. Tbe tallest oak
on the British isles is called the "Duke's
Walking Stick." It is higherthan the spire
of Westminster abbey. The oak of Gele

for (1,000 and the trunk and branches for

According to Gaoler.
The phrase "according to Gunter" re
mains in our language as a perpetual
memory of Gunter, the English mathema
tician, who was liorn in 1581 and died in
1(26. Almost to the present time the works
of Gunter were considered standard. He
was the inventor of the surveyor's chain,

the scale bearing his name and anything
in mathematics to be right must be "ac
