The report of the bureau af statistics
show that the immigration for the year
1891 was 20 per cent larger than in 1690
590.6C6 against 491.026 but still far
short of the great totals in 1881 and 1882,
when the figures were 669.431 and 73 3, -992,
respectively. There was a remark
able approach to exact identity between
the numbers coming from the United
Kingdom during thelast two years 120,
667 in 1890 and 120,722 in 1891; about
3.500 less from England and Wales in
the latter year, and about 3,500 more
from Ireland and Scotland. Ireland's
contribution to the grand total is now
about 55.000 a year, or only about one
tenth of the whole, whereas from 1847 to
1854 it ranged from 115.000 to 221,000,
and in the year of the latter num
ber (1851) was almost two-thirds
of all. The New Orleans incident di1
not cause any check to the movement
from Italy to this country, the number
of such immigrants having risen from
62,492 in 1890 to 6S.4S1 in 1891. The
effect of Russian persecution of the Jews
is reflected in the increase t immi
grants from that nation from 40.883 to
73.177, acd the proportional growth was
almost as large in the case of Poland,
which sent 31.2S5 last year, against
19.737 the year before. There was a
slight increase from Austra Hungary and
a considerable one from Geiminv, which
sent 123,401, or more than twice Ireland's

Governor Joseph W. Fifer, of Illinois,
better known smong the people who for
some inscrutable reason made him gover
nor, as Private Joe Fifer, despairs of the
republic. This despair fills us with alarm,
not for the republic, but for Private Joe.
Last Friday he talked to a convention of
the farmers of the Eighth Illinois con
gress dis'rict at Jolict, a talK full of dire
ful prophecy. If tbe reports of his
speech are true, it was the most peculiar
address ever delivered by the governor of
an American state. "W ill we lose
asked Private Joe, whose immensity of
heart has been supposed to atone for bis
future blindness as to shall and will,
"will we lose our republican form of gov
ernment Bud take on a stranger one?"
Hear the melancholy answer which Pri
vate Joe made to his melancholy ques
tion: "Just so certainly as I stand here this
government will fall. All tends to wealth,
wealth to luxury, luxury to weakness,and
weakness to lapse."
But P. J. has a remedy for the lapsus
of wea'.tb into luxury, luxury lapsed into
weakness, and weakness lapsed into
"What Bre the safeguard?? I have a
remedy. It is tbe educational and land
system and should not be tied up over
It is difficult to tie up anything in this
country for more than two generations,
and so far as tbe educational system is
concerned, that seems to be as open as P.
J. 's speech aperture. But let us bear
bim pour out his honest soul among the
Eighth district farmers:
Keep the boys on the farm; make it
attractive. How I love to get down
among tbe masses, breathe the fresh air,
and feel the honest pulse of the people.
"Sometimes I get disheartened in the
whirlwind ef criticism of official life, but
when I get down among the honest
masses God bless them I take courage
and hope for our country and its mstitu
"Oh, how I hate political life, Bnd long
to be with the people. As Lincoln sid,
you can fool some of tbe people all th
time, you can foel all of them some of
the time, but you can't fool all of them
all the time.
"A war between religion and irreligion
is approaching, not of bullets, but of
"Hold fast to vour civil Bnd religious
liberties; guard well your moral growth,
and if you are strong and courageous, the
battle will be won; if not, then some uib
bon will write the decline and fall of this
This is delightful. We are not so
much impressed with the wars and ruin
which Ptivate Joe sees coming as with
his immense condescension in stepping
from tbe dais of intellectual and political
superiority and getting down amang tbe
masses, and feeling the. honest pulse of
tbe people. He will find that tbe peo
ple's pulse keeps more temperate music
than his own. For ha, poor fellow, is
not only worn out with worrying over
tbe ruin of tbe republic, bnt he hates po
litical life and longs to be among the peo
ple once again. On account of tbe im
pending crisis, however, he is working
his brain to tbe bone in the endeavor to
be nominated for governor, and to en
dure four years more of hatred and dis
heartening political life.
For his own sake tbe people of Illinois
should take pity on poor old Joe Fifer
' and let htm breathe tbe fresh air and feel
their honest pulse once more. A genius
like his ought not to be bidden away in
Springfield. Send him to tbe fair and

BREAKS THE SPARROWS' HEARTS.
Kove Vay In Which a, Boy and a Do,
Earned the Chicago Bounty.
Across tbe street from where Dick and
bis owner live is a large vacant lot which
ha laU ly been cleared of trees, many of
tbe branches of which were allowed to re
main on the ground. In the tall grass
whioh gj-ew op under these branches thou
sands of English sparrows daily congre
gate to feed on the grass seed and then
perch in the fallen tree tops. About the
timet ha the law putting a price on the
beads of these winged offenders went into
effect th attention of Dick's owner was
attracted to this rendezvous of the birds
as a first class place to secure sparrow
Being v.ithout a gun he went oer to see
what be could do iu the way of stouing a
few of tbem to death. Dick accompanied
him on tbe bunt, and to his master's dis
gust mad ; a sudden bound in among tbe
sparrows before he had a chance to throw
a stone. If a dynamite bomb hod been ex
ploded at long the birds their consterna
tion could not have been greater. They
flew in every direction, a if shot out of a
gun, strik ng their wings and heads against
the branches of the trees in their wild
haste to p-t away. Dick sneaked off, with
the sheepish look of a dog who knows he
has done wrong.
His master turned nway in disgust. In
a minute or two he noticed that tbe spar
rows had returned and started to make an
other atta -k. Dick, who was watching
the campa gn with much'eagerness, made
a detour, and coming up stealthily from
the other side repeated his previous exploit
before his Master could get ehve enough to
hit them. The lad then turned his bat
teries on C ick, who prudently kept out of
range and I waited developments.
The boy walked away, but Dick remained.
He had Uncovered a new diversion. He
would waU off a little distance and lie
down and wait until the sparrows had
gathered it the branches again, when he
would creer up slowly and with a sudden
bound poun -edown on the sparrows again.
This soon l-egan to interest the boy too.
He sat and watched Dick's maneuvers for
several hours, thinking it great fun. After
awhile he tot iced that as the sparrows
Hew away some of them dropped to the
ground suddenly as if hurt, arid picking up
one which had fallen near him, found it
dead. IJefore night he had collected near
ly 100 sparro-vs.
After disp.s;n of his collection at the
sparrow office next morning aud opening
up negotiatims for a small rille he re
turned to his hunting ground. Dick had
preceded bin,, and he found quite a batch
of dead spar-ows as the result of Dick'
uioruing efforts. In fact, t lie number of
dead sparrows increased daily, and finally
the lioy's curi sity v;us aroused. "What is
it what kills 'em'" he asked of a sympa
thetic old Irishwoman who keeps a randy
and fruit sto-e in the block, and whose
sales had been largely increased by the
hoy's success in sparrow catching. "Shure
it's of a brokt n harrut the puir crathurs

the toiine to g -t a boite to nte, an ye re ras
cally baste a a dou kaiies huntin 'em
away till the puir things die of vixashun
and disappoint ment, so they do."
A physician of the neighborhood who
has made a stt'dy of ornithology had his
curiosity aro:neil by the strange way in
which the bird died and dissected several
of them to disc over the cause of death. To
his surprise h ; found the old Irishwom
an's hasty conclusion was correct. In every
case he found the bird's heart wjis rup
tured. lieth t this resulted from the
sudden fright which the birds got when
Dick sprang n-iiong them or whether it
was from "vixashun and disappointment"

I know a 1 terary man," says a philo
sophic friend. ' who works from twelve to
ghteen hours a day. He complains
when he hits time that he hasn't half
time enough to do what he would like to
do. That man is a stud v. He is the best
read man I knot.- is a living encyclopedia
of knowledge, tut he doesn't know enough
to come to dinii T. I presume such men
are necessary to the world. It is a curious
thing that the nan who works hard with
his brains conceives more work and is in
spired by the ambition to accomplish it.
whereas the mat who hasut anything par
ticularly to do never originates anything
and finds it a tas to do anything.
"These qualities often exist iu the same
man. Now, in n v own case, when I am
much driven, I think of lots of things I'd
like to do if 1 had time. I make a memo
randum of them ind put them aside, work
ing a little on this or that between times.
Just as soon as I am relieved from mental
pressure my thought, capacity, industry
and ambition collapse together. I think
work, congenial I lental labor, is a sort of
dissipation. The more you have of it the
more you want ai d the more you can d

How VrccIiw Virus Is Obtained.
The preparation used to produce what
we call "vaccin: tion" is known among
medical men as uccine virus, to produce
which it is necessary to go through a sur
gical operation, t it- subject being a young
cow or even a calf. After scarifying the
belly of the aniru il (the parts having pre
viously been shavuj, the wound is inocu
lated with virus f :-om an animal already
in use. A sore thus formed without
lasting injury to the beast, and after
week or ten days a thin vaccid matter be
gins to flow from the ubrasion. This pus
or matter is the va line virus of commerce.
Goose quills wl.icb have been scraped
with a knife until : hey present a rough ex
tenor are rubbed ri this virus. The viru
from one abrasion is sufficient to coat 10,
000 quills, which, a'ter being so prepared
are technically ci Hid "points." These
points, when ready fc-: shipment, look very
much like ordinary goose quilLs, the virua
coating not being v'sible to the naked eye.

An Easy Way of Hurrying th nn,
"If a fire does not burn well," says the
old household superstition, "and you want
it to draw, you should set tbe poker acraa
the top bar of the grate." This is bup
posed to placate the gnomes, whom it was
formerly believed were very jealous of the
robbery of their underground country of
its coal treasures, and were very apt to
take their vengeance out in preventing the
fire from burning. It was the mystic form
of the cross thus made which was supposed
to drive them away. Nevertheless it
would not do to use the shovel in this
charm, or the fire would be sure to go out.
It would be possibly a bappy thing if all
housekeepers who fail to make their fires
burn could attribute it to the witches of
the chimney, to the gnomes of the lower
world, or to some household fairy who had
cast a spell over the honse. But there are
no gnomes, fairies or witches now to inter
fere with the fire if only the dampers are
right and some judgment exercised. New

Queer Claims Against the Government.
The government has to defcaid itself
against many cranky claimants. One man
wants Sin) for cutting the corns of sol
diers duriug the rebellion. Another per
son desires J5 in payment for a pair of
trousers which were eaten off a clothes-
ine in lSTtl by a government goat. In
Brooklyn there is a citizen who petitions
for $500 iu settlement for a calf killed by a
cattle inspector, who put a tin tag through
he animal s nostrils and caused blood
poisoning. Another applicant wants $73

sky blue burse." Washington letter.
Careless People and Lamps.
The two great and very real dangers in
connection with lamps are dirt and care
lessness, and to these two causes may be
safely attributed most of the so called
lamp accideuts. Consult anv good lamp
seller, nod he will give you any number of
facts bearing out this assertion. lie will
tell you the creat sources of danger in
lamps are dirty burners and badly fitting
wicks. How inconceivably careless people
can be on these points it is difficult to re
alize without personal observation. Lon
The Mexican lllr.
The Mexican dollar is generally called
'piaster" in France, and the name is some
times applied to our own dollar. The ap
pellation is incorrect in either case, for the
word piaster or piastre has for the last
fifty years been only applied with correct
ness to a small silver coin used in Turkey
and Egypt, which is worth from live to
eight ceuts. Chicago Tribune.
Strength of Spiders' Silk.
According to computation.based upon the
fact that a fiber only one four-thousandth
part of an inch in diameter will sustain
fifty-four grains, a bar of spiders silk an
inch in diameter would support a weight of
seventy-fourTons. In other words, spiders'
silk has nearly three times the supporting
strength of iron. Kansas Farmer.
