It ia an old game of the republican or
gans to pretend that tbe democratic par
ty ia for free trade. They think that
they can thus scare some people into vot
ing for candidates whom they do not
otherwise want to support.
Bat tbe republican party discovered in
1890 that the game did not work any
longer. The people have found out the
trick, and they elected a democratic
bouse of representatives by an anti-republican
majority of 1,832.202.
The republicen party, if it remains in
power, proposes to keep up tbe prices of
food, clothes and bulletins materials by
maintaining tbe high protective tariff. It
also proposes to continue to reduce re re
nue by keeping up prohibitory duties. It
intends to meet tbe deficiency for which
it is responsible by tbe creation of a, new
Tbe democratic party has quite an
other policy. It proposes to reduce
tariff taxes and thereby to increase re re
nues for the purpose of meeting tbe
enormous charges with which tbe bil
lion dollar congress has burdened the
This, in brief, is what republicans and
their secret allies call "free trade," but
tbe people are no longer scared by this

Errors of l-'o uctd People.
Millions of people Lave defective vision
without knowing it and millions more
have very imperfect conceptions of dis
tance and direct iou. They are easily
"turned around" and cannot keep the
points of the compass right. Curious cases
are cited of persons whose ideas of certain
parts of London were all inverted; of an
other who placed Paris north of London;
of thirty well informed young men "about
eighteen were under the impression that,
while the sun rises in the east the stars
rise in tbe west, from having learned that
the sun bas a proper motion among tbe
stars," and it is thought probable that
there are but few educated men who have
not grown up with some curious errors
with reference to geographical facts which
have hopelessly bothered them all their
lives, though Ruch errors as these are due
to defective teaching rather than defective
Many I'aea for Ammonia.
' Numbered with the many uses to which
ammonia may be put are the following:
Cleaning hair brushes, taking out carpet
spots, acid stains cleaning carpets and
cleaning windows. Ammonia is also an
invigorating addition to the bath and is
efficacious for growing plants. Ammonia
cream this season affords a new form for
this household ingredient. It conies in
flexible tubes, and for toilet purposes and
traveling is more convenient than is the
Breathing- Through the Month.
Many physicians have pointed out the
evil results of breathing through the
mouth, while many more have declared
that the habit is itself a result. The cause
of it is disease of the air passages. Other
results are inability to fix t he attention on
any more or less serious subject, feeble
ness of memory and tendency to headache,
while in some cases the organs of sight
and hearing are successively affected, con
junctivitis and hardness of hearing being

Taming; the Trombone.
It bas hitherto been impossible to "mute"
the trombone as tbe neighbors of such as
still aspire to proficiency upon it know by
bitter experience. Cornets, horns and
trumpets have all been muted, either by
tbe intrusion of a wooden plug into the
bell or, in the case of the coach horn, by
partly closing the bell with one of the
hands of tbe player. In the trombone the
bell Is not only too far away to be muted
in this manner, but the whole structure of
the instrument makes such an operation
impracticable. The problem has, however,
been solved by an invention known as the
A piston placed just under the hand
used in holding the trombone can be de
pressed by a touch of the middle finger,
and is returned by a spring the moment
pressure is removed. The effect of lower
ing the piston is to switch off the air cur
rent into a long and tortuous tube the
same length as the main body of the trom
bone. This terminates, not in a bell, but
in a curious, irregular cone, so that tbe
sound is not "blared forth," but only
"gently tooted." The echo attachment is
so arranged that the whole of it is hidden
by the Jtell of the trombone when the
player faces the audience.
By its aid seemingly distant music can
be produced in the front of the orchestra
without the device of biding the trombone
behind the scenery or in an angels' gallery;
but, best of all, the trombone player's pu
pil can spend the evenings in fighting with
his octaves and arpeggios without any risk
to the eternal wellbeing of his neighbors.

The Origin of Matchmaking.
It is not generally known that it is to Mr.
Isaac Holden, member of parliament, that
we owe the invention of the lucifer match.
Tbis discovery was, he himself has told us,
the result of a happy thought. "In the
morning I used to get up at 4 o'clock in
order to pursue my studies, and I used at
that time the flint and steel, the use of
which I found very great inconvenience.
Of course I knew, as other chemists did,
the explosive material that was necessary
in order to produce instantaneous light;
but it was very difficult to obtain a light
on wood by that explosive material, and
the idea occurred to me to put sulphur
under the explosive mixture. I did that
and showed it in my next lecture on chem
istry, a course of which I was delivering at
a large academy.
"There was," added Mr. Holden, "a
young man in the room whose father was
a chemist in London, and he immediately
wrote to his father about it, and shortly
afterward lucifer matches were issued to
the world. I believe that was the first
occasion that we had tbe present lucifer
match. I was urged to go and take out a
patent immediately, but I thought it was
so small a matter and it cost me so little
labor that I did not think it proper to go
and get a patent, otherwise I have no
doubt it would have been very profitable."
Walls in European Cities.
With very few exceptions the old cities
of Belgium and Holland have leveled the
walls which have played such grand parts
in the national histories, and they are con
verted into promenades, after the manner
of our Chester and York. The walls of
Antwerp and Malines have been replaced
by boulevards. The old bastions of Am
sterdam still remain, but the citizens of
ArnVieim and Utrecht and Hoorn and
Zwolle and Haarlem and Leyden disport
themselves on fine evenings upon the line
of fortifications famous in the most stir
ring pages of what is perhaps the most
stirring of European histories.
When the t raveler reaches conservative
Spain he finds none of this modernization.
Still around Avila run the granite walls
built 800 years ago, with their eighty-six
towers and gates. The walls of Cadiz are
three miles in extent. Active, progressive
Barcelona has swept away her ramparis,
but Segovia retains hers, with them'ninety
towers; Merida has hers, with their eighty-
four gates; the splendid granite walls of
Burgos yet remain; so do those of Cordova
and Leon and Toledo and Salamanca.

No More Edelweiss.
The edelweiss (Gnaphalium leontopodi
um) has been hunted from one point of
refuge to another among the Alps till it
has been almost exterminated in its native
home. One of the roost beautiful and
quaint of mountain flowers is condemned
to extinction because tourists in Switzer
land consider themselves bound by fash
iou to wear a couple of dried specimens in
their hats or send them borne gummed to
a card. In one or two of the cantons the
government has interfered to save the per
secuted plant, and has set a fine on the
plucking of its beautiful white, fluffy flow
ers. The edelwesB does not submit readily to
cultivation in gardens. It will indeed
grow when planted in a rockery, but it de
generates early, tbe flowers assuming a
green hue in glace of snowy white and the
petals losing their curious wool. Cornhill
The Rat aa a Scavenger.
It is only as a scavenger that tbe rat
seems to have been designed, and it is of
record that the terrible plagues which used
to turn tbe towns and cities of western Eu
rope into charnel bouses have been but lit
tle known in those places since rats began
to be among the greatest factors in the
economy of the animal world.
The plagues and pestilence of the bygone
centuries do not decimate tbe populations
of western Europe nowadays, it is true.
But while they have given their old stamp
ing ground a wide berth they have not
been rooted out by any means. It is not
impossible that the rats who helped to rid
England of a pestilence carried the germs
of the disease to Turkey or to Hindostan.
