testimonial of fo.tJGO lo the widow of
the late 0, W. Wilson, superintendent of
the Iowa division. Mr. Wilson, it will be
remembered, was drowned near Albia
several weeks 8go while inspecting the
road bed after a heavy rain .
The democratic congressional comity
mittee of this district met at Monmouth
on Saturday and decided to hold the con
vention at that ci'y on September 1
The basis of representation was fixed at
one delegate for every 200 and fraction of
100 votes or over cast for E 8. Wilson
for state treasurer in 1890, which will
bake a total of 93 delegates.
Mr. Carnegie is stated in Apple
ton'a Cyclopedia of Biography to be
"a frequent contributor to periodicals on
the labor question " His latelt COfttribu
lion is the most striking of all, and leaves
to doubt hi to his position. He pub
lished it upon the bodies of numerous
laboring men, and it will no doubt have a
"wide circulation" as one of the most
forcible evidences of the benttniary
results of the McKinley idea of protec
tion to labor.
Iniquities of "ir! ctton
TLe lowest wages paid in this country
for labor at all skilled are in industries
having protection, and none of them pay
any more than the market rate for labor,
while ail strive to appropriate the entire
tariff bounty to themselves and give
workmen no share.
All ultia-protectionists harp continu
ally upon the alleged high wages paid
by American protected manufacturers to
their foreign imporied laborers, but an
examination of the payrolls shows that
the claim consists chiefly of imaginary
money, and that in point o' fact they are
the poorest paid town laborers In the
United States, end the more highly pro
tected the factories are tt.e less the wages.
The democratic candidate for vice
pretident in the campaign of 1892 may
not be so well known to the country at
large as the gentlemen who were associ
ated with Mr. Cleveland in 1SS atd
and l&Si, but nobody could ask a better
character than is given Mr. Stevenson
BY his republican neighbors of Blooming-
ton. His political strength amorg those
who know him best has been twice dem
onstrated by his election to congress from
a district which is normally republican,
and it was a pleasint feature of the re
ception given him on his return from
Chicago that Gen. McNuka, the repub
lican whom he defeated in these two
contests, headed the parade and delivered
the speech of welcome. Gen. McNulta
paid tkls hearty tribute to his political
"Mr. Stevenson, here you have snent
most of your life, here you are known to
all these people. These democrats here
and ali the other democrats to the limi s
of our Knowledge, have faith in yon per
sonally and politically. These repub
licans, mugwumps, prohibitionists and
political nonconformists generally who
may be classed as scattering, and all
others of similar proclivities, where
ever you are personally known,
while they do not pin their political
faith to you, believe in your personal
character and the goodness of your pur

The local republican newspapers were
quite as complimentary ana beany.
Says the Pantgraph: "Mr. Stevenson is a
gentleman of unimpeachable character,
and his political friends will have no
reason to apologize for him in that par
ticular, and of him they may tell the
truth, without shame to themselves or
scandal to their party.

CARVING THE TEA ROOT.
Curious Industry Which Furnish
Employment to Many Celestials.
F or more than a 1 undred generations
there has been a guild of artists in this po
pulous province of Fa kien whose life w ork
is the conversion of thi gnarled and inter
laced roots of the tea tree into things of
beauty, that, is, beat by from a celestial
point of view. The herb whose leaves
gladden western pai.ttes in the form of
Oolong. Hyson and -knichong is a hardy
piant and takes a firm hold on mother
earth. Its roots sect i to have no regular
law of growth. Sometime they develop
very much as a bea-d sprouts from the
chin; at others they serrate and move
along parallel lines is if thev were a lig
In general it may b. said that they make
one lanje. clumsy msss from which shoot
out anywhere from hree to thirty root
lets. Their surface never smooth, but
always irregularly ro! nigated. The value
of a root depends po:i its size, its outline,
Its freedom rum decay and its suggestive
nessof some eyeryday object. It is rare
that r. main root ot ft.t n.at- -liore than
six inches in diameter PnVl, IT!.-.,,.- .-,

century. Infrequent y they "attain to
twelve and fifteen inches, and are 'thr-n
r.U Jineat experta to be 400 and 600
The rO&i s are dug from the soil and al
lowed to thoroughly dry in the open air
under a shed or else in a tuoUeratelv warm
room. The loom earth is carefully re
moved, as is tLe loos, bark and all pieces
decayed, cracked or v. ormeaieu. The art
tot then determines v hat it is to be. The
favorite types are dra.-ons, buffaloes, cows,
carnivores, bears, mat darins. priests, howl
ing dervishes, dancers or mythic heroes.
If the root Cannot be worked into one of
these shapes it is concerted into a pedestal
or platform for a Bgura piece. The pri
mary OBUoa consists in sawing it into
rough shape. This s done with a fine
crosscut, and the clem edges are removed
by rubbing them on t lesor bricks. Some
times a root is lent iy softening it with
steam or boiling wat r and then twisting
it in any desired dire Uon.
Now comes the hardest task of all. The
Et valm-dnieco is that which shows no
art and Svems perf -ctly natural. The
carver goes over the 1. lock, removing here
a fiber and there a ne- of roots, here thtff

A .renl feast.
There has net er been prepared at any
feast a bigger bowl of punch than that
which was brewed by the Right Hon. Kd
ward Russell whi n I e was captain general
and commander in bief of the forces in
the Mediterranean s as. It was made in a
fountain in a gardeL. in the middle of f ur
walks, all covered overhead with lemon
and orange trees. I i every walk there was
a table the whole length of it, andoneverv
table was a cold collation. In the huge
fountains were the :llowing inizredients:
Four hogsheads ot b andy, eight hogsheads
of water, '..-. ou i l.-m ins, twenty gallons of
lime juice, U900 p mnds of fine Uabon
sucar. five pound f prated nutmegs. SCO
toasted biscuits and B pipe of dry mountain
Over the fountaii was placed a great
canopy, while in the midst of this lake of
liquor there sailed a little sailor boy who
filled 1 lie cups and -eplcnished the glasses
of all those who h id a deire to drink.

Toppy tilt i ation in India.
As the cult i vat lot) of tobacco is prohibited
in Kngland, except index a special license
from the excise aut lOTities, so the cultiva
tion of the poppy i British India is for
bidden unless a lie use lias been taken out.
When a cultivatort akes out a license from
the opium department to cultiv ate a cer
tain area (usually t wo-t birds of an acre of
his own land), he receives an advance in
money to secure 1 is allegiance, and he
binds himself to deliver to the opium
agent at a fixed price, ordinarily of five
shillings a pound, whatever opium may be
produced on his la:id.
When official si pervision is efficient, it
is certainly very di Ticult for a man to cul
tivate poppy on a h.rger area than is cover
ed by hia license without detection. The
cultivation cannot be concealed. Black

Though Labom here was in Paris for
work during the siege and had no desire to
get back to England immediately, even if
he could have mat. aged it , he used to oc
casionally start ofl from Paris on foot to
see how far he could go without being
turned liack. Oneinorning he started early,
but had leen less I ban an hourou his jour
ney when he was oQaied by a couple of
soldiers who prom t ly marched him back
to the city; but ev n in these experiments
Labby shared a 1 tter fate than some un
lucky American v ho tried the same trick
and who, after narrowly escaping murder
before he reached Paris, was then locked
np in a dirty cell rith two drunkards until
it was discovered that his papers were all
