democratic members ot the house on the

able to take any part whatever in the
debate, as bis physicians say that be
must go away as soon as he is able to
travel, for five or six weeks of absolute
rest, before he can resume his djties in
the house. The state of Mr. Mills'
health is Buch that it is extremely doubt
ful whether he will bi able to make any

speeches, as nearly one third of the dem
ocratic members have notified Mr. Mc
Millin, who la in charge of tbe bill, of
their desire to speak.
Improvement 4f tbe tl lftiiiippi
A bill baa been introduced in congress
for the permanent improvement of tbe
Mississippi river, which, if passed, will
be of immense advantage to the whole
Mississippi valley, and which therefore,
ia entitled to the earnest support of the
senators and representatives in congress
from all the yalley states. It proposes
to tuke the great river out of tbe regular
river and harbor bills, and make it the
. subject of special legislat ion by voting an
appropriation of f 8,000.000 a year for
the improvement of it; this appropria
tion to te continued until there shall be
a good navigable stage of water all the
year round, from St. Paul te the mouth.
This is certainly a liberal sum, but it is
insignificant compared with the enormous
subsidies in land and bonds which have
been granted to railroads; and, besides,
it may be fairly claimed that the time
has come for the great and growing pop
ulation cf the central west to claim some
thing at the bands of congrctrs in aid of
It has been stated that the task rests
upon the agricultural states, chiefly those
of the Mississippi valley, not only of fur
nishing a fot d supply to the population
of those states of the Atlantic slope en
gaged in manufacturing and commerce,
which do not produce their ewn erain,
meats and provisions, but f furnishing
also tbe bulk of the txprit s ot ahrond
to pay for our imports Tfce efflcial
statistics prepared and published at
Wtshinglon by tbe government show
ho- important this duty is. and how ef
fectivelv it is performed. Our total for
eigii commerce for the fiscal yeur endinc
June 30. 1890. amounted in value to $1,
634 000,0005845.000.000 xport. and
$78 ) 000.000 imports, showiug a balance
of trade in our favor of $56 000 .000; and
of tlie exports. $594,000,000 was made
up c f farm products, f 250 000.000 worth
of cotton; 154.000 000 of breadstuffs;
$131 ,000.000 of provisioas. meat pro
ducts and dairy products; f 33.000,000 of
anirrals. and $C1 000.000 of tobicco.
When it is rt fleeted that, to maintain
this balance in our favor of 5C 000 000
in commercial interchange with foruigu
coun'.rtes, our agricultural products have
to pay the cost of carriage of over 4.000
miles and compete in open mstkets with
the s milar products of sll other coun

as to the thinness to which cold iron could
be rolled. One maker produced a sheet of
paper so thin that 1.SO0 layers of it piled
upon one another measured only one inch

MEN WHO HAVE NO FEAR.
A Story Teller Think That Some People
Cannot Kealie Hunger.
Courage has often struck me as rather
being tbe loss of something than the pos
wwsion of something. Of course I know
lhat a brave man will walk deliberately
into death, knowing full well what he is
ioing, but having made up his mind to do
It at nny cost. It is no sign of cowardice)
when a man sees that it is useless to die
when he might live with just as much
iredit and honor to himself, and so refuses
;o walk into the jaws of death.
But there is the man who does not know
aliat fear is. I have wen in my life a few
.airh men men who would go into any
danger for the simple reason that they did
not seem to have the power to perceive
that what they did was likely to cost their
I remember once iu the late sixties I was
in a town which was bud. There were some
men in that town whose actions were never
questioned and there were nmnv lawless
deeds at which even the good' citizens
shrugged their shoulders and that wasall.
A man came into the town who had the
mildest manner of any one whom I ever
saw. He was very tall, had broad shoulders
and huge fists, but his eye was of a soft
blue and his smilej was always friendly.
One day two outlaws had been riding
around town, running things to suit them
selves. One of their tricks had boon to ride
into barrooms and scatter people there.
They were let nlone at this amusement
until they both tired of it, for they were
"had nan" and no one cared to have thern
begin a savage attack on him.
When the two riders, inflamed with
brutality, found the barroom charc-ps too
flat for their tastes, they looked around for
other mischief to do. They found it in n
little store, which was a notion shop, drug
store and everything else. They charged
it on the trot, and with spurs jingling, arms
waving and hoofs clattering, in they went.
An instant later two screaming women
rushed from the place und ran down the
street. When the outlaws rode out to the
sidewalk they sat in their saddles and
bowled like savages.
riow the mild mannered, blue eved giant
coming down the street had seen enongh
of the affair to understand what had hap
pened. He stopped and looked at the two
mad riders for a full minute. The whole
affair was over. The women had disap
peared and the horsemen were sitting
there, still laughing. But the giant, walk
ing close to one of them, reached up quick
ly and took him by his coat near the
throat. He pulled the man from his saddle
as if he had been a sack of bran, and giving
him n terrific shake ilaslied him to the
ground, where he lay all in a crushed
J he other rider had seen all this at. first
with a lx)k of stupid astonishment, and
then with a savage light on his fane he
whipped out his revolver; but la-fore he
could use it the giant bad Hriiitebel lu'm
from his saddle, and with one hand around
his throat mid one slithering up the fel
low's clot lies low on his c hest he liloraKy
wrung the strength out of him.
'1 letter tvt out of this town as soon as
you I 'm." he s;(i,i iu a imv voice, and he
liuiiT hint into the street on ton of his enm-
pered w !ien lb, v got up. Tbry had their
revolver-, but they elimlicd into their sad
dles as if they were half frightened to
death and rode out of town.
Now. my point is this. o man who had
im idea of timber would h;tvo attacked
those men when tiie peril of the women
was past. The chances were ten thousand
toonelliat lie would be killed. lie was
absolutely ignorant of fear, for l.e after
ward la-came a deputy marshal, and while
trying to arrest three desperate men in
this fearless wc.y was shot to pieces. In

Tlie rirst Convert in Japan.
Y native Japanese Christian periodical
recently told the story of the first Protest
ant Christian in Japan. This was one Mu
rata, a military retainer of the Lord of
Saga, in the southern island of Kiushiu.
In 1ND he went t o Nagasaki by order of his
chief, am! one evening, as he was crossing
the harbor in a boat, he picked up a book
that was limit ing about in the water. The
writing ran from side to side, "like the
crawling of crabs," and upon sending it to
nne of the Dutch then settled at Nagasaki,
he learned that it was the Christian Hitde,
then a proscribed book.
t uriosity spurred hiui on, and he htulone
of his assistants learn the language of tbe
I took and translate it for him sentence by
sentence. His study was continued in se
cret, with a few friends, after his return
home. When a diflioult passage was found
a messenger was sent to Dr. Yerbeck, a
well known missionary then in Nagasaki,
for its interpretation. Murata was after
ward baptized, and his name now stands
first on the roll of l'rotestnnt Christians In
The Sun's nutation Period.
Professor Doner, the Swedish astrono
mer, has made known an important work
which has led to surprising results con
cerning the rapidity of the sun's revolu-
mn. By observing the displacement of the
lines of the solar siectrum in the olwerva
tory in Potsdam, Professor Dtiner has ob
tained a hitherto unknown exactitude in
the measurement of the movements of the
sun and found that the body moves nround
its axis at n rate of a mile and 242 feet in
a second of time. The sun's dav lasts
therefore at its equator twenty-five davs
and twelve hours of our reckoning. But
what is remarkable in Duner's measure
ments is that, they result in a different
length of revolution in different parts of
tho body of the sun, regularly increasing
in length from the equator to the poles, so
that those parts of the sun's surface lying
near the two poles have a day as long as
forty-six of our days. This is only possi
ble with a movable and gaseous liedy like
that of the sun. Dondon News.
