Yeast placed in a saccharine solution at
Ordinary pressure gives rise to the well
known vinous fermentation. Under
pressure of 600 atmospheres, however, this
did not dfceur, the yeast falling to the bot

the pressure the yeast remained inactive
for some tiiSe and then resuming its ac
tivity net up fermentation in the ordinary
way and carped it on to completion. In a
second experiment yeast was put into pure
water and R'ft for an hour under a pressure
of 1,000 atrr ospheres.
It was t en transferred to a solution of
agar at the normal pressure, and after
passing t. trough a period of quiescence
gain became active, and appeared to hava
lost none of its power aa an organized fer
ment. P'rvm these experiments Professor
Begnaud concludes that the effect of high
pressure upon the yeast cells for the time
during which ' the experiments lasted
merely induced the latent condition, and
was otherwise harmless. Whether a mora
prolonged exposure would ultimately in

Anxious, however, to obtain a further in

ma instrument for registering the ferment

the application of nigh pressures, ana was
enabled to obtain a graphic representation
of the process under normal and various
abnormal conditions. Similar experiments
were made with unorganized ferments,
various digestive fluids and the number of

was found that high pressures completely

THE MODERN WOODMEN CASE.
A State Official's Antagonistic Attitude
His Attack on the Modern Woodmen of
America Circumstances of the Catte
Stated by a Correspondent .
Elgin, Oct. 88 The Dial tomorrow
will contain the following:
The state campaign presents the spec
tacle of a man who was enabled by his
prominence in a state ring to force his re
nomination upon his party regardless of
four years of arrogant incumbency, dur
ing which his official acts have been the
object of the gravest criticism and coo
demnation. It was the knowledge of
this that prompted the Chicago Tribune
to fight the renomination and endorse
ment of State Auditor Pavey by his
party. The Tribune acquiesced only af
ter it saw that his nomination was inev
itable, which was brought about by
threats and bull-dozing on the psrt oi
Pavey and his ring. This "lawdefying.
constitution-ignoring salary grabber, is
now before the people for re-election
and an endorsement of his mercenary
and dictatorial career. His success at
the polls depends solely upon those
whom he grievously wronged in his in
herent antipathy and hatred of every th'ng
pertaining to beneficiary life insurance
co-operation. In all transactions be
tween officials of such orders and the
state auditor he seldom couce-iled this
Hardly had Pavey been inducted into
the office of auditor of public accounts
before he began an onslaugbt upon bene
ficiary life insurance societies. The first
to receive his vindictiveness was the
Modern Woodmen of America, which
under Pavey's predecessor had grown in
B'X years from a handful of men to a
membership of over 50,000 of which 23.".
000 resided in the state of Illinois. In
June, 1889, the head consul's offl -e was
removed to Elgin, and immediately the
conspiracy thai hd been planned in the
offices of the Springfield ring began
working. The malcontent and wrecker
whom Pavey and the ring backed and
encouraged, was at that time a trusted
member of the Woodmen council, re
ceiving more salary than a majority of
the other members combined. This
mercenary and vengeful spirit wxs
tbe direct medium through which the
Springfield ring worked in its
designs uooon the order. This hench
man of Pavey's boasted of bis "influence
at Springfield" and ability to wreck the
order. The attempt to secure a new
charter failed because there was no just
cause. Tbe Springfield ring allowed this
tool of theirs to barasss and embirrie
tbe order until he was beaten at every
point in council and at law, and they
themselves were dt-featt d in court in
their attempt to have a receiver appointed
to wreck and rob the ordr Tben they
trumped up tbe noted state suit against
tbe order. Tbe trial was continued
year and a half after the defendants were
out of office but W48 forced to trial last
spring and resulted a technical finding
for tbe plaintiff and virtually a victory
for tbe defendant. Pavey was seemingly
anxious to have tbe trial eiiderl before
tbe campaign opened, as it might prove a
factor in nis canvass. His action is gone
but not forgotten by the loyal Woodmen
of the state
No order was ever beset by such base
and malignant ret of persecutors as were
tbe members of the Springfield ring to
ward tbe Modern Woodmen of America
Tbe whole trouble may be traced to an
inception in Pavey's miod, prompted by
his enmity toward such orders. It h&
been asked in regard to Pavey and this
particular henchman, wbich was tbe tool
of the otherT It may he truthfully said
that both were equal conspirators, agree
ing in everything, differing in nothing
Nothing was stopped short of in their
eff rts to disrupt tbe order and bring the
toyal supporters into disrepute. Tne El
gin attorney of tbe ord'-r, when running
on a republican ticket, two years ago, was
villifJed. slandered and attacked by tbe
8iringflld rir.g, and ignominious' y
defeated- A special edition of a scur
rillous sheet was circul Ued among the
Woodmen in Kne county. In the light
f past events it !o.:s not seem possible
that any man holding a policy in i fra
ternal life insurance society can consist-
ingly and conscientious y vote for the
arrogant enemy of co-operative insur
ance, V. W. favey. Kvery Mod-ru
Woodman who realises the great invirv
and expense to his order caused by the
malignity and vindictiveness of the state
auditor should assert nis manhood and
ndependence and retire Pavey to private
life, where be can no longer prostitute a
public offlr-e for private gain and in tbe
interest of bis own selfishness and that of
a ring of henchmen

In Cardinal Wolsey's palace no leas than
880 beds were provided for strangers, with
superb canopies and curtains of silk or
velvet. There were bedsteads of alabaster.
quilts of down and pillowcases embroid
ered with silk and gold. The chairs of
state were covered with cloth of gold; the
tables and cabinets were of the most costly
woods. Much of the splendid furniture
was emblazoned with "My lord's arms;"
everywhere was impressed the cardinal's
hat. The same magnificence appeared in
the decorations and ornaments of the
chapeL But the forty-four gorgeous copes
of one suit, and the rest of the sacerdotal
pomp displayed there, were eclipsed by the
majesty of Wolsey's secular equipment.
The anuual expenses of his household ex
ceeded 30,000 an immen.se sum for those
days. His retinue of 300 persons, his kingly
stud, his sumptuous open table are men

A Popular Error.
Down until the middle of the past cen
tury many supposed-to-be-educated people
in the world actually believed that the
barnacle or brant goose was hatched from
the parasitic shell known to conchologists
as the barnacle, or as scientifically the
bernacula. Holinshed, the English histo
rian who flourished just before Shake
speare's appearance in Knglish literature,
in writing of the barnacle goooae, says, "I
have seen these barnacles hanging upon
roots, timbers, etc., with the feathers hang
ing out of the shell two inches." Dray
ton's "Herbal," published seventeen years
after the death of Holinshed, refers to the
wonderful barnacle goose as follows, "In.
the north of Scotland there are certain
trees whereon do grow shellfishes, which,
falling into the water, do become fowles
whom we call barnacles and, in the north
of England, brant geese; in Ijancashire,
tree geese or shell geese." St. Louis R

The Saunterer heard not long ago of a
colored servant who went into a fish store
in Richmond to buy n dinner for his mas
ter. He looked all nltout the place until he
came to a pile of shad, and bei ng some what
skeptical as to their freshness he raised
one of the fishes to his face. The dealer,
seeing this little act, asked indignantly,
"What do you mean by smelling of that
"Didn't neber smell oh de fish nohow,
massa. Only speakin to him."
"Ah, indeed, anil what did he tell you?"
"Massa, I jes' axes him fo de news at de

1'laces of Refuge.
As Wazan is a city of refuge for the out
side worhi, so are the mosques and tombs
of the shereefs for the inhabitants of
Wazan; anil men fleeing from justice or an
enemy have been known to spend months
and even a year in the holy precincts with
out once issuing forth. The great mosque,
of Mulcy Abdullah Shoreef, with its courts
and arcades, affords shelter for any num
ber of these refugees, and at the present
moment no inconsiderable quantity are
housed there. Their food is brought to
thetu by their relatives or friends, if they
have any, and if not they either send and
buy, or, if moneyless, exist on the charity
of those who pray in the mosques. Black
