In 1863, soon after beginning practice,
the late Dr. M acker zie was earning $25,
0(10 a year. At the time ot bis death bis
income amounted to $75,000 a year.
George W. E. Cook, of Mar
shall county, will probably be' presented
to the state democratic convention as a
candidate for nomination as a member of
the board of trustees of the university of
Illinois. He has been identified with
educational advancement for a number
Ha BRigON-Morton and "boodle," fur
nished by Wall street and the protected
manufacturers, was the combination that
brought the present administration into
existence, and notice has just been served
upon republican aspirants to the vice
presidential nomination, by no less a per
sonage than Vice President Morton him
self, that the same combination has been
formed to run the republican national
machine again this year. There was a
disposition sometime ago to freeze Mr.
Morton out of the combination because
of bis unwillingness to pledge himself to
raise the amount of money named by
Chairman CI ark son as necessary to pay
for his renomination, and the impression
was allowed to go out that Mr. Morton
did not care for a renomination. But
since the withdrawal of Mr. Blaine, Mr.
Morton has reconsidered the matter, and
agreed to pay the price demanded, and
be now announces that he will ac
cept a renomination should it be ten
dered him by the Minneapolis convention.
There is undoubtedly a vigorous revi
val of the Blaine talk, and there are those
who insist that if the secretary had felt
as well physically when he wrote bia re
cent letter declining to allow his name to
be used at the Minneapolis convention as
be does now it would not have been wri'
ten. Tne apparent lack of candidates
against Harrison does not in the least di
minish the talk of opposition to bis re
nomination on the part of the senators
who are opposed to him nor on the part
ot the other large class ot political lead
ers who praise the president and bis ad
ministration, but who boldly proclaim
their fears that he cannot again be elect
ed. It is said that both the Piatt and
Miller men in New York insist that Mr.
Harrison is much weaker now in that
state than he was in 1883, and they
add that it was only by the most her
culean work and the most lavish tx-en-diture
of money that it was possible to
get bim a majority at that time, and they
insist that neither the work nor the monev
can be secured for him a Becond time.
The opponents of Harrison are hoping
that the Blaine talk will go on without
any protest from Mr. Blaine and that his

It is about a year since the protection
organs began to tell oi the magnificent
tinplate works ofN. A G. Taylor, of
Philadelphia. For some months, accord
ing to the organs, this mill has been turn
log out enough tin-plate every week to
build a tin roof over the city of Philadel
phia. The organs baye asserted that it
was employing hundreds of laborers. At
the same time it was suspicious that no
tin plate dealer could get N. A G. Taylor
to quote prices, but all who manifested
any curiosity about the output of this
mill were denounced as tin-plate liars and
as being employed "by British interests."
Possibly no one would have known the
extent and value of the Taylor works bad
they not been destroyed by fire last week.
The mill was totally destroyed, and the
loss was $2,500. From the amount of
blowing that has been indulged in by the
organs about this mill one would have
thought the loss would amount to at least
$25,000 and would have been fully justi
fied in guessing that it would be $250,000
N. & G. Taylor made a great mistake
when they let the public know their loss.
A tin-plate mill worth no mere than an
ordinary village drug store cannot be a
very imposing affair nor can it give em
ployment to "hundreds of workingmeu.'
The next time one of the famous tin-plate
mills burns up the amount ot loss should
be considered a strict political secret.
A; the Peoria Herald says, "nothing
shows the shallowness and untruthfulness
of the tin-plate claims better than having
the truth let out. The fire in Philadel
phia has added a great deal to our store
of tin plate information."
Parenta and Children.
Parents talk too much to their children,
a iihysieiun authoritatively asserts, partic
ularly those parents who give most anx
ious thought to bringing up their children.
The talk of children is a natural eacape
valve; talk to children is an undue stimu
lus. If parents were what they should 1h
their yea and nay would lie sufficient. It
is better, says the physician, to turu a
child's mind to something childish and
superficial when it wishes to do or to know
things not suited to its age or capacity
than to satisfy, argue or explain.
Children should be encouraged to talk in
private about all the things, little and
great, that till their minds. But let them
do the talking. If a child thinks that the
stars are gimlet holes in the floor of heaven
to let the glory through, why not? It is
not necessary for children to "have correct
views of the cosmogony of the universe.
Let them work out their little problems in
their own way.
A mother with a child of unusual precoc
ity set out with the determination to be al
ways perfectly frank and reasonable with
the little one. Now, a child can ask more
questions in a minute than a philosopher
can answer in a lifetime. This child is of
delicate health, and by order of the physi
cians no books are allowed her, but her
daily conversation with this devoted moth
er is more stimulating than any child's
book. It is always the best, the most pains
taking mothers who err in this way. The
theory of compensation is a broad one.

Tfca Right Way to Shop.
If women could but realize it, they double
their labor and add weariness to their own
flesh, and that of all with whom they come
in contact, by the haphazard way in which
they shop. It is just as easy to start off
after something you really want as to go
fooling around and trying to makeup your
mind when you are in the midst of the
crowd in the shops. "An eyesight" to
your need is a very important adjunct in a
shopping campaign, and the successful
buyer usually possesses it. One gains a
good deal of information concerning hu
man nature in attending the bargain sales,
and if one has leisure she gains a good deal
of amusement as well by lingering a little
around the most attractive counters. There
he sees all sorts and conditions of women.
There U the one who knows just what
she wants. She has her memorandum
tablets in her hand, and she goes from
counter to counter making her purchases.
She knows the best bargain the moment
she sees it, and she secures it. She doesn't
stop to look at things she doesn't want;
not a bit of it. She attends strictly to
business and gets through with it, while
the fussy woman who doesn't know what
she wants is pulling over towels on the
counter. She is a delight to the salesman
or saleswoman, and she gets served with
respect and dispatch. New York Press.
Miss Penny's Work.
It is now nearly thirty-five years since
Miss Virginia Penny began her labors for
the working women of this country. She
was then a resident of Louisville, her birth
place. Throwu' upon her own resources by
sadden financial reverses, she had become
a teacher in a seminary for girls. During
that period she realized how few avenues
uf employment were open for women, espe
cially in the south, where social pride
closed to them most of the few branches of
work that they could, without loss of
standing, enter in the north. When a leg
acy enabled her to go back to a life of ease
Bhe concluded to investigate for herself the
question of woman's labors, and as far
irack as ISM she legan t he work to which
she has devoted the greater part of her
At that time only wven occupations were
open to women in auy part of this country:
now, owing in a considerable degree to lier
labors, there are nearly 400. IIir work w;is
of the severest' and most trying nature.
Hhe visited the library's of New Vork, Hus
ton aud Philadelphia, spending four years
in preliminary investigations. She sent
thousands of circular letters to merchants
i.nd manufacturers, employed assistants
and visited between .1.000 and G.000 shops

by an attack of rheumatism, ami when I had

my legs, so that 1 had to po on crutches.
About a year later, Wrref uln, in the form ot

for eleven years I was an invalid, being con
fined la any bed six yenr. In that time
ten or eleven of these sores appeared and
broke, causing me great pain and suffering.
Several times pieces of lone worked out of
the sores. 1'liysieians did not help me and
I Became Discouraged
" I went to Chicago to visit a sister, as it
was thought a change of air and scene might
do me good. But I was confined to my bed
most of the time. I was so Impressed
with the success of Hood's Sarsaparilla
In cases similar to mine that I decided to try
It. So a bottle was taught, and to my great
gratification the sores soon decreased, and I
began to feel better. This strengthened my
faith in the medicine, and in a short time 1 was
Up and Out of Doors
To make a long story short, I continued to
take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a year, when I
had Itecome so fully released from the chains
of disense that T took a position with the

have not lost a single day on account of
sickness. I always feel well, am in good
