SIore than 25 per cent of the freight of
the country is coal. In 18S9 the arer
age price per ton at the mines was 99
cents for bituminous coal and f 1.44 for
anthracite. The demand for coal in all
parts of the country is improving, and it
is taking the place of wood as fuel in re

has kept out of fatal combinations.
Therefore oat of 235 delegates already

He claims in addition that he can safely
rely on the support of 65 or 75 of the ui
instructed delegates. This week 12 coun

31 re About Free Wool.
A Galesburg correspondent doubts the
correctness or an assertion or this paper
that the free admission of tbe mixing
weols would increase the demand for aod
add to tbe price of American woo's.
A few facts taken from tbe census re
port of 1890 oa the woolen manufactures
of this country may induce him to change
his opinion. There were used in tbe cen
sus year in the manufacture of woelen
goods of ail kinds 215,001,813 pounds of
scoured wool. There were also used
163.955,033 pounds of other materials,
being cotton, shoddy, animals' hair, mo
hair, etc. It appears, therefore, that tbe
woolens and worsttda, carpets, etc., made
in 1890 were 57 per cent wool and 43 per
cent something else. Of tbe wool used
one-third was imported. In 1880 the
woolen goods were 64 per cent wool and
36 per cent adulterants. Of the wool
used only one quarter was imported.
It follows then that the result of 10
years of duties on foreign wools was tc
lessen the percentage of wool used and
to increase the percentage of wool lm
ported. The production ef American
wool increased very slightly. There
was no object in raising more, for there
was no demand for it. There was no
demand because the wools to mix with it
could not be imported unices consumers
would consent to pay high prices for the
goods. Consumption determines pro
duction in the long run, and a woolens
?o up the demand for wool goes down,
Tbe Galesburg correspondent may
claim that tbe trouble is not that there
re duties on wool, but that they are too
low. Supposing that they were thrice
what they are. and tbe importation of
foreign wool practically prohibited. Still
the Americt n wool-growers would not be
benefitted, und the production of wool in
this country would not increase materi
ally. But tbat of shoddy would, and so
would the consumption of cotton for
mixing purposes. Cannot the corres
pondent see tbat cotton is more danger
ous, becauso a cheaper rival, than the
foreign wools he dreads? Tbe use of cot"
ton in the voolenmi!ls increased 50 per
cent in the 10 years from 1870 to 18S0.
Cotton constituted one-fifth of the wool
ens made t o years ago. If tbe wool
duties are It ft as they are the next census
will shew one-third cotton, one-thiid
shoddy and one-third wool, and the price
of American wool will be less than it is
Shoddy is cheaper than some kinds of
wool atd dearer than oihets. Let in the
cheap foreiga v-oolsand there will be
less 6hoddy and cotton used not less
American wool. There will be a greater
demand for wool on the part of American
manufacturers and this country will pro
duce more, far production increases with
At present American woolen fabrics
are 43 percent adulterants, 19 per cent
foreign wool, and 33 per cent American
wool. That is the result cf about 30
years of wool duties. Is it not time to
try snother t tck and endeavor to increase
fie per cents je ot domestic wool which
the present system is reducing? The
correspondet t fear; that tbe price of tbe
1 tter will fall if the duties are removed.
But the dut.es have failed to raise or
keep up tbe price. They have forced the
substitution of adulterants. Foreign
wools do not compete with so much as
supplement American wools. Their free
admission weald enable great r quanti
ties of domes' ic fleeces to be used and an
advance in their price would follow inev-itab'y.
Pric of Tame near.
The writer -tus once requested to act as
a friendly broker to bid for the bear which
found its way -jo often to the London police
courts after lieing exhibited before the
queen at Win lsor a tietir which so won
the heart of the policeman who "took it
up" from a stern sense of duty, that he
"mode a collection" to defray its expenses
after the stimr.ions.
The would le purchaser was a worthy
butcher, before- whose shop the bear was
being exhibitexl, v bile the writer heard its
history from tl e genial and dirty foreigner
who owned it.
"Sir," said tl e butcher, "excuse the lib
erty, but would you kindly ask that
Frenchman w!iat he will take for the
"Certainly," we replied, "if you will say
why you want it. Is it for professional
pnrposes?" for tbe lear was fat.
"Oh, not I t-hottld not think of such a
thing," said the butcher. "I want him for

"Up to ten poands," the butcher replied.
But though we did our best, the owner
would not accc pt less than 800 francs, to
tbe great disappointment of the would be
purchaser. London Spectator.
Weakness of Some Object lsaona.
Directions for object lessons often resem
ble a lesson on a butterfly that I heard given
by a kindergartoer. With a single butter
fly held in her tand she led the children to
speak of its flying in the sunshine, sipping
loou irom uowers, living through the sum
mer and of the jeauty of its colors. Not a
word was said of tbe three parts of the
body, the two pairs of wings, the six legs,
the antenna? at d the tube through which
it sips food all of which and more the
children could easily have been led to see.
Doubtless the teacher thought the chil
dren had had a beautiful lesson; but bad
they received anything at all? Although
city children, tl ey spent tbe summer in
the country they had all seen and prob
ably chased several species of butterflies,
and possibly son e of them knew more than
their teacher alout tbe habits of butter
flies. Mrs. M. A. Aber in Popular Science

A parasitic worm known as the liver
fluke attaches itself during a certain stage
of its being to tte liver and lungs of cattle.
During its early growth it goes through a
series of astoni; hing metamorphoses, de
veloping a new self inside of its old self in
a different shape several times. Finally it
leaves the body i f the beast, and what be
comes of it is not known precisely, but
there is no doubt that it is transformed
into a species of snail that lives In wet
places. It certainly must lay its eggs in
such spots, whera the cattle lick them np,
thus completing tbe cycle of its being.

, When Rnslness Is Brisk, j
Briskness in some lines of business does
not always indicate general prosperity. I
met an undertaker the other day and me
chanically inqui -ed, "How is business?"
Rubbing bis ha ids gleefully, be replied,
"Never better." I was about to congratu
late him when I remembered what brisk
business with hint signified toother people.
Of course one wishes everybody to be pros
perous, but prosperity in the undertaking
liue is rather banl, to say tbe least of it, ou
