Governor Fifes is now alluding to
the Illinois Germans as an intelligent
class of people. True for you, Joe, but
when did vou find it out? It is not long
since you thundered in favor of a law to
compel them to learn things you thought
they ought to know.
St. Louis Republic: Blaine's friends
do not believe he is seeking the presi

the republican nomination, but they are
convinced he will not scream if they take
advantage of his powerlessness to resist
their assanlta on his unwillingness.
Germany is walking over a j powder
mine when she casts reflections on our
dried apples. Our naturalized citizens
may be imprisoned, our nary may be
bulldozed in Samoa, our pork may be
treated with contumely, and we will pro
test and arbitrate. But when the virtue
of our dried apples is brought into ques

Many acrimonious things have been
said by the London correspondents of
American newspapers in reference to
Dean Bradley's decision that it would be
impossible to And space for a memorial
to James Russell Lowell within the pre
cincts of Westminster Abbey. In an ar
ticle which he has written for the June
number of the North American Revisw,
Archdeacon Farrar points out that there
is really no room itt any more moniS
menu in the famous church except two,
which are reserved for the two foremost
Englishmen of the time Gladstone and
Tennyson. The title of Archdeacon Far
m's article is "The Future of Westmin
The Chicago Post prints an editoria
on the subject of base ball, and now that
the Twin-Cities are in the ball business
the suggestions it offers are apropos to
Rock Island: "Your Uncle Anson is the
best living refutation of the IS supersti
tion. He has 13 men in his choir and he
has won 13 games in succession a rec
ord very seldom beaten in base ball. It
is 13 to 1 that he will keep up his tris
umphal progress until be is first instead
of third in the race. Time was when
old Ans was joined to the pagan
idols. He carried in his pockets the
hindquarters of rabbits killed in the dark
of the moon, touched deformed men on
their humps, crossed his fingers when he
met a pair of cross-eyes, refused to walk
under a ladder, and, ir a word, performed
all the apocryphal rites ef a hoodoo de
votee. Now he has reformed. He flaunts
13 men in the face of superstition and
plays ball. Good old Ans 1 He has dis
covered the secret of success. The way
to win at bill play is to play ball."
A republican veteran writiDg to the
Peoria Herald says, "You are right when
you say that when the votes are counted
for Fifer at the Soldiers' Home the re
publicans will think they have outlived
their usefulness. Gov. Fifer will learn
during this campaign that soldiers are
men just the same bb other people, and
that they should have all the rights and
benefits of an American citizen just the
same as other paople. I am one of the
republicans who believe just because a
man went into the army and helped to
defeLd his country, and perhaps in doing
so lost bis health or became a crippled
invalid for life, that on this account he
should not be made a prisoner and also
made to feel that on account of his misfor
tune be should be humiliated to such a
condition as to feel that all his manhood
had died out forever. Soldiers, b?ave
men who defended our country's flag, are
just as good as anybody if they behave
themselves, and Gov. Fifer will learn
this to be true at the coming election. In
my honest opinion Judge Alt geld will re
ceive 500 republican soldier votes in Ad
ams county." - '

There will be no change in the discis
pline of the Methodist Episcopal church
regarding dancine, theatre-going, card
playing, etc. The Troy (N. Y.) confer
ence caused a storm all over the country,
and petition after petition, memorial af

ference and the committee on the state
of the church. Friday memorials from
Illinois, Kansas, Ohio, New York, Mis

day California, Colorado and Michi

Savlng Money on Foor Dollars at Week.
An operatic manager in this city, now
wealthy and famous, once gave me a his
tory of his commencement in New York.
He can e here thirty years ago. With a
compatriot he hired . a room, for which
they paid two dollars a week. They
marketed and cooked for themselves, and
their weekly expenses, washing included,
were $2. 50 each. Both men were well edu
cated and of decent breeding, but poor and
strangers. They managed to earn their
$3.50 a week apiece, their $3, then (4, $3
and so oil When the 4 stage was reached
they commenced to save money.
Within two years each was doing well.
Now one of them owns and lives in the
house Jim Fisk converted into a palace for
himself and is a man of mark. What be
came of the other I forget. "It is dearer
living in New York now than before the
war," said my manager, in telling me the
story, "t ut if I had to begin again on five
dollars a week I would not be afraid."

Napoleon's Ambiguous Praise.
At one time before the Franco-Prussian
war when Napoleon III was a visitor at
London amateur theatricals were ar
ranged f r bis entertainment.
A Mr. Brown, who took a principal part
in the t ntertainment, prided himself on
his knowledge of French. During the
evening he was one of the cast in a French
comedietta, and immediately after that
played the part of an Englishman who
spoke broken French.
During- this latter sketch Napoleon III
laughed frequently, and when Mr. Brown
was presorted to the emperor at the close
of the evening he was complimented in
this an.biguoas manner: "Your bad
French v. -as as good as your good French.
Allow mn to congratulate you."
Naturally Mr. Brown retired a little
mystified. New York Herald.
Patches for Kid Gloves.
"Kid g'oves will rip despite our best ef
forts to kep them in good condition," said
an exquifite young man at the Southern
last night. "But we have at Jast learned
how to mend them. Instead of sewing up
the rent as formerly, we now take a small
piece of court plaster or surgeon's plaster
(the latter is the better), turn the glove
wrong side out and neatly apply the plas
ter over the rent or rip, first having drawn
the rent j-art of the glove nicely together."

The old time viol was the first instru
ment of i s kind, and furnished the plan
for the modern violin, which, however, is
700 years old. It is said that Charles II in
troduced it into England. One of the
finest mal;ers of violins was Stradivarius,
of Cremona, who existed in the early part
of the Eighteenth century. Violins made
by him nre worth thousands of dollars
now, and are highly esteemed by collectors
and performers. Uarper's Young People,
