A Colorado iudge states that by the
use of certain chemicals it is possible to
remove the word9 of a letter and ral sti
tute others without detection, even under
a microscope. Experts in a recent case
actually made tte test in the judge's
Indianapolis Sentinel: The adotiois
tration evidently has no idea of "letting
up" on Mr. Blaine just because he is
down. It is apparently the programme
to wipe out every reminder of the great
premier. The latest move in this direc
tion is the dismissal from the treasury
department of Mrs. Cynthia Smith, a
cousin of Blaine, from the position in the
treasury department which she filled ac
ceptably since 1882, when she was ap
printed at the solicitation of Mr. Blaine.
It is In such mighty ways as this that the

Rev. Ira Chase, the republican nomi
nee for governor ot Indiana, is extremely
unpopular with the administration ma
chine in that state, but this opposition
was unable to unite on a man to defeat
him. He is a minister of the Christian
church and whenever he is campaigning
preaches wherever he happens to be on
Sunday and drops a silver dollar into the
contribution box. He became governor
through the death of Gov. Hovey and
then nominated himself with his own
machine. His opponent is Claude Matt
hews, a democrat of the Allen G. Thur
man school and a man who is loved and
esteemed by every citizen of the state.

New Haven. Conn., News.
The News was founded 10 years ago as
an independent newspaper.
The republican party was then drifting
towards that policy of centralization of
power at Washington, and promotion of
class interests which it has since more
openly pursued. The democratic party
had not recovered from the shocks of the
civil war and its ill-starred presidential
campaign under the leadership of Hrace
In Connecticut, Bulkelcyism had begun

candidate for governor in 1882, and Mor

During these 10 years, each of the great
parties has come to assume in Connecti
cut, and in the nation, a dt finite position.
Therepublicanparty has become the open
champion of a tariff framed mainly in the
interest of protection for certain indus
tries, as against a tariff framed mainly for
revenue and n easured by the need j of
the treasury: and the champion, also, of
federal laws to regulate in vital points
the internal affairs of the several states.
The democratic party on the other
hand has returned to the ancient standard
of Jefferson and Madison. It insists that
the genius of our system of government
demands that every state should regulate
its own affairs so long as it bears true
faith to the constitution of the United
States. It declares that unnecessary tax
ation is unjust taxation; and that public
office is a public trust. It insists on an
honest currency; that the intrinsic value
of every dollar coined by the United
States, whether in gold or silver, shall be
the same to the man who holds it.
Before these issues were made up there
was a call for the independent voter and
the independent journal. But now that
each party has deliberately taken its
ground, and, by convention after conven
tion, down to those which have just
spoken at Minneapolis and Chicago, has
irrevocably affirmed it, we believe that
the place for every man is in the ranks of
that one of these great organizations
which he believes to be in the right. Or

The News believes that the democratic
party of 1802 is in the right, and that it

will not occupy a position which it be

itself a democratic journal. It will be a
change of name, but our readers will
bear us witness that it involves no change

cated we shall advocate. The commend
ation we have always been glad to bestow
on any good measures of republican leg
islation, we hope we shall have still more
frequent oDportunities to give hereafter .
Nothing unfair or uncandid will ever be
knowingly said by the News of any re
publican or of any democrat. No un
worthy candidate need look for favor
here But we believe that in the success
of the democratic principles as pro
claimed at Chicago depends the prosper

United States QeOol Hello!
South America- -Hello!
U. S. Is that jn u, South America?
S. A. Yes; whi.t do you want?
U. S. This is United States. You
know we put a -eciprocity clause into
what we call the 1 IcKinley bill, that we
passed here last fall?
S. A. Yes, I he ird you did.
U. S. Well, tht t clause authorizes the
president to put i luties on tea, coffee,
sugar, molasses ai d hides.
S. A. Aren't yo i mistaken? I thought
your constitution gave your congress
full and exclusivt power to lay and col
lect taxes, duties, etc.
U. S. Yes, so t does; but I haven't
time to discuss a constitution now more
than 100 years old. As I was going to
say, the president can put a duty of 3
cents per pound o l your coffee, l1 cents
per pound on you hides and 2 cents per
bound on your sn ,'ar, if in his opinion
you unduly tax tl e goods imported into
your countries fr. m the United States.
It is to learn wha you intend to do in
regard to this ma ter that I have called
S. A. If yonrp-esident wishes to put a
tax on these articl m, all of which are now
on your free list and your people don't
object to paying it, I don't see why we
should. As to w mt kind of duties we
should have. I th nk we can decide for
ourselves withou- any foreign interfer
ence. U. S. Of conn e we don't wish to in
terfere, but don' I you understand that
if we tax our im; orts of those articles
from your connri ies and not from other
countries you will lose some of your
trade up here?
S. A. Oh, yes; of course we might
lose a little with ,-ou, but we would gain
about as much with other countries. If
you tax raw hi les and increase their
cost your manufacturers will make
fewer gloves and shoes, but Europe will
make more; so il you tax sugar as you
have been doing your canners and pre
servers will do less business and Europe
will do more in this line. I see clearly
that while such ;i policy might injure ua
a little it would larm yon much more,
so much more that I can't think yon
would be so fo lish as to adopt it "but
only intend it fo a bluff. No, we don't
care to swap anj tariffs this year.
U. S. But wait a little; don't talk
quite so loudly. After I shall have ex
plained a few th ings yon may take quite
a different view.
S. A. Well, f. o on.
U. S. You see we have had a high
protective tariff here for thirty years.
S. A. Yes, I know that's what you
call it. I agree, though, that it's high.
U. S. Well, the Republican party that
made this tariff has been telling the
farmers and lab-irers that it was to help
them by giving them homo markets,
high wages, etc.
S. A. You dii .n't have to give reasons
to yonr manuf ictnrers, I guess. They
didn't object to policy that would give
them exclusive c wnership of your "home
U. S. Please wait until I am through.
As I was going to say. the farmers who
expected every hing of protection bo
came spendthr fts, and, because nearly
half of their far ns were mortgaged, and
becanse farmei s east of the Mississippi
river have lost half of tlifir value during
the last fifteen years, they got it into
their heads that "protection" was to
blame for all their extravagance and
foolishness. Tie same kind of an ab
surd idea was t iking possassion of the
wage earners, -ho. because they had to
do more work t r see their wages reduced
nearly every y ar, began to think that
protection was it fault, though it was
explained to t lem that it was due to
overproduction, excessive competition,
etc. Well, an way, by 1890, when Mc
Kinley was revising the tariff, a few of
us saw clearly that the protection sys
tem could not ttand much longer unless
it was again -opaired with a view to
helping the far Tier. It was for this pur
pose that I t aat is, we hit ipon this
scheme of rec iprocity to open markets
in your countries for our farm products.
S. A. Yes, see; but you don't ex
pect to find markets for farm products
down here? V 'e are in the farming busi
ness ourselves, and nnless your farmers
look well to th ir laurels they will soon
lose some of t iieir markets in Central
America and t ie West Indies, where we
are already selLing flour and other agri
cultural products. It is implements of
agriculture rat her than products of agri
culture that w e want.
U. S. Now you understand our pre
dicament. We must make the farmers
believe that w i really expect that reci
procity will oj n up new markets.
S. A. But isn't the scheme a sad com
mentary on y mr "home market" the
ory? Doesn't it admit that protection
can't make "home markets?"
Canada H llo! Hello! Is this United
U. S. Yes.
C. I called you up to learn what kind
of a reciprocit r treaty yon intend to make
U. S. We are not considering any
reciprocity treaty with you and lam
not certain th it we shall do bo. We do
not care to di :ker with you.
C But out 5,000,000 people purchase
as much of y u as the other 51,000,000

. Incident at an African Reception.
D. Peters narrates a curious story of
the killing of two natives by Lieutenant
Tiedemann, not far from Victoria Xyanza.
The white expedition had been received
with much hospitality by Wachore, an im
portant sultan, who invited Peters and
Tiedemann to his audience hall, where, sur
rounded by his chiefs and women, he
received them. To impress his guests with
his power, he had on hand a large collec
tion Qf the weapons used by his warriors,
including a considerable number of rifles
and other guns. Among them was a Mar
tini rifle, which Wachore handed to Peters
to examine. Peters, after examining the
weapon, turned it over to Tiedemann, who
discharged it accidentally. The ball passed
through the head of one of the men in
attendance, killing him instantly, and
struck the throat of a man who was behind
him and wounded him so severely that he
bled to death in a few minutes.
Peters endeavored to apologize for the
"My friend," he said, "is overwhelmed
with grief. He did not know that the gun
was loaded and he was not even trying to
fire it. I think he is not to blame."
The sultan, much to the surprise of the
white men, burst out laughing. "Oh, it is
nothing," he said, "they're only slaves.
It is no matter whatever. Resides, it was
not your friend hut the gun that was to
Mama, Your friend has done nothing
wrong at all."
The women echoed the words of their
master. They said it was nothing and
they tried to make merry, although Peters
thought their laughter was a little forced.
Some men lore the bodies out of the hall.
They sprinkled sand over the pools of blood
and brought in another bucketful of banana
wine, with which the king and his guests
regaled themselves after the tragical spec
tacle. Peters said it was a good ileal like
the accidental breaking of a vase by a
guest in a European drawing room and
the host and hostess endeavoring to relieve
embarrassment and asserting that the in
cident was of no consequence. Xew York,
Gilt Kdged Telegraphing.
The operators were a famous sender and
a man who is now court stenographer in
Bangor, Me., and the transmission of the
president's message from New York for
the Bangor papers was the occasion.
When the sender got down to business
the sounder pattered like rain on a tin
root But after awhile, as he warmed up,
the sounder ceased to click, hummed like
the bur-rr of a dynamo and then ceased.
The signals were coming so fast they could
not record. The receiver thought for a
moment, fished a quarter from his pocket,
disconnected the wires from the sounder,
tied one around the quarter and laid the
coin on his tongue. Then t aking the other
wire between the fingers of his left hand
he picked up his stylus and went on copy
ing the message, and in a remarkably short
time he got "30," which means "All
through; good night."
He got the message because his tongue
was much more sensitive than the sound
er. He received a rapid succession of
shocks which the sounder could not re
cord, ami he. being a star operator, read
them with ease, and as he was practicing
shorthand at the time he put the message
down in stenography.
One little point to explain is what hap
pened while he was joining his tongue into
circuit. The story explains that a jam of
signals was on the wire near Portland,
ran wed by the characters coming so fast
that they were wedged against the insu
lators. After a few seconds the jam broke
and the characters flowed right on. a little
lamped together, but the receiver got them
without, a break. Electrical Age.
A Terrible Revelation.
M. Sarovy. it seems, was at one time very
shortsighted, but a successful operation
made hir.i longsighted to an extraordinary
degree. This restoration of his sight was
not altogether an unmixed blessing. For
the first time since his childhood he could
see things at a distance. His home, that he
thought so line, was found to lie neglected
and dirty; his precious china was chipped
and cracked; his books were soiled and
torn. But the crowning blow came when
a grand luncheon was given to celebrate
the restoration of the critic's sight.
Women were invited in great number,
and came in t heir very best. The Coniedie
Francaise, the Vaudeville, the Odeon. were
represented by their fairest ones, and the
table "was a sight for the gods" at least
Sarcey would have thought so six weeks
But very soon his countenance fell, and
I saw his eye wandering about in astonish
ment aye, in distress. He laughed no
more and looked miserable. After the
coffee he made a sign to me and I followed
him up stairs, believing him to have been
disturbed by the thought of some work
which ought to be done at once. But he
threw himself heavily on the sofa, which
groaned as if sharing its master's despair,
and exclaimed piteously: "Good heaven!
Why they are all frights! They are all
dyed, painted, wrinkled, scraggy! Oh. rues
belles aimes, what has become of them?"
Systematic Medical Inspection.
Investigation shows that of late years
Germany. France and England all exhibit
a decline in rates of mortality, owing to
the thorough system of medical super
vision some time ago inaugurated. The
entire territory of Great Britain, including
England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, is
completely divided into subdistricts, each
division being under the care of a health
official, who has fulk control of all sanitary
matters in his district, with authority to
isolate cases of diphtheria, scarlet fever,
measles and other contagions diseases.
Again, several small towns in a district
club together and build hospitals for con
tagious diseases, where children are taken
and cared for. These hospitals are con
ducted in the most practical and humane
manner, so that in cases requiring a moth
er's care wards are provided where mother
and child can be together isolated from the
others and the outside world, instead of, as
in American cities in some cases, the par
ent not only being forbidden to be with
the child, but even deprived of the privi
lege of seeing it. New York Tribune.
Would you believe that both natural
perfumes and artificial odors exert a real
influence on our minds? A physician has
favored us with a detailed statement as
the result of lifelong observation. He
says that the geranium inspires a man
with audacity, self possession, reckless
daring. The violet inclines to devotion
and tender affection. The benzoin to
reverie, poetry, inconstancy. Mint is the
mother of cunning and sharp practices.
The verbena begets artistic taste. Camphor
brutalizes a man. Russian leather renders
effeminate and develops a taste for plea
sure and self indulgence. Opopanax en
genders madness. Amber enkindles in
spiration; it is the nferfume of blue stock
