je more of them when the coning crop

specially in Illinois.
Rock Island democrats gave expres
sion to their enthusiasm over the election
last Bight in a manner that was as com
mendable as it was hearty. There was
nothing offensive in the demonstration.
It was simply an outburst of enthusiapin
cyer a great victory.
Cub of the most significant tranapar
encies in the procession last night was
that referring to the expiration of Sena
tor Collom's term in 1895,and presenting
Hob. Ben T. Cable as his successor.
Coming events cast their shadows before

Jam Eta O. Blainb is tbe one reliable
prophet in the republican party. During
the campaign of 1800 he sad in a public

give yon a warning that, as Pennsylvania
votes on next Tuesday, tbe nation may
vote two years hence." And so it trans
The Redwood Tree.
On the camping grounds of tbe Bohe
mian clnb on Austin creek, and in tbe
Armstrong tract near Gnernovitle.one finds
the lowland redwood in perfection. In
such place there are often rings of great
trees inclosing pits five or six feet deep,
and thirty, forty, or even fifty foot in di
ameter. Each of these pits is supposed to
show whore the venerable ancestor of the
surrounding circle of trees once stood.
Long before it fell, innumerable sprouts
grew from the yet living roote. After
ward, when the giant yielded, the rains
washed new soil into the "bottoms" from
the mountain sides to fill the deep chasm.
For a century or so there was a struggle
among the children of the fallen monarch,
and at last only seven or eight remained
to become great trees ct twelve feet in di
ameter set on tbe rim of the pit formed by
the decay of the roots of the ancient tree,
and each having a complete root system of
Other trees, seedlings or sprouts, grow
up between them, and in a few more cen
turies the process of forming another red
wood tree ring will be repeated about the
largest of the second growth. Rings of
this sort can be found in all stages of for
mation in every canyon and valley of the
redwood country. Some very large rings
still show the broken edges of the central ;
tree's roots projecting like tbe staves of a
barrel around the hollow, overgrown with
ferns and wild oxalis, or filled to the brim
with fresh, spicy redwood sprouts. The
frreen spires ot the living forest, 300 feet
high, filter the air through their innumer
able branches and shut out all but faint
bine sparkles of the sky. The dust of one
of the pioneers is nnder foot, and a little
tree of hist year's growth is struggling to
gain a place.
The red bronze trunks of tbe trees stand
like a wall, hiding the rise of the moun
tains, hiding the banks of the river, though
one hears the sound of its flow anfl the
splash of little trout streams in the can
yons. Such groves as this are the temples
of the California forest system. Charles

England's Early Coal Trade.
Though the records of the incipient coal
trade are scanty, they show that a traffic -In
coal first sprang np between London j
and the Kewcastle-on-Tyne coal fields. A j
lane in a suburb of tbe metropolis, where
the burning of lime appears to have been '
carried on, was already known as "Sea i
Coals Lane," in 1228. A particular notice '
also occurs of the arrival of shiploads of
sea coal in London in 1257, and small pur
chases of it were made for forging iron at
Westminster palace in 1358-9. It was
usually sold by the quarter. At Billings
gate, in the time of Henry III, every two
quarters of sea coal paid a duty of one
Sea coals were likewise bought at Ber
wick -on-Twerd in 12C5, so that by the mid
tile of the Thirteenth century a small
trade in coal was evidently being carried
on along a large stretch of the eastern sea
board. The growth of tbe trade is reflected
in the increasing revenue of Newcastle-on-Tyne,
which, from being 100 a year in
1213, had risen to 200 in 1281 owing to the
coal trade of the port.
From smiths and lime burners the use of
coal extended to artisans wbo used fur
naces in their trades. In Nottingham, sit
uated on the confines of a great coal field,
this movement appears to have commenced
very early. Queen Eleanor was unable to

"Did yon ever have a terrible cold?'' said
a little chatterbox to ns tl.e other day.
"Of course you have, but I hope you were
not ninny enough to try every remedy that
was recommended, as I did. The result of
the dosing was ten times worse than the
cold that was the innocent cause cf my
double suffering:. You Bee, the first day,
when I was a little hoarse, one friendly ad
viser suggested a good big drink of whisky
before I went to bed. This I took, and the
headache next morning was ten i.imes
worse than the headache ot the night be
fore. I told this to another sympat hizer
and he said: 'You ought to have taken a
good dose of quinine. Whisky is no good
without that.' That night the quinine
was admitted into my system 'in a re; pect
able portion, and even yet 1 cannot hear
people unless they positively scream tt me.
"Well, I steamed my bend, soaked m y feet
and did every earthly thing anyone saw
fit to suggest until I came to the conclu
sion that the remedies were worse then the
disease and resolutely quit, when, to my
surprise, 1 found that the cold had si ruck
likewise, but whether in the first or last
stages of torture I cannot tell. At, any
rate, I have learned one thing in f ttnre
it will be one remedy or none ata.l."
Nothing la Cheap.
There is nothing cheap nnder the snn.
Good woolen is good woolen and his its
current rate, and good cotton is good cot
ton, and good food is good food, and good
tables and chairs are good tables and
chairs, and in these days of competitive
labor and trusts and tariffs known to all,
prices vary hardly a hair's wort? xd noth
ing but secondhand goods can . be tight
at a bargain. A piece of silver, wii b an
initial marked npon it, a table which has
bad one dinner served on its surface is
'old stuff" and has almost no m.-trket
value. It must be nearly ven .way.
Everything else fetches its va fictitious
or otherwise, the value at wh it is held
by buyer and seller.
And if one thing is undersold to iiatch
business, another is oversold to effs ?t it,
and you must get up very early in the
morning indeed and be a very old, old
shopper to know which you are purchas
ing. A great mark down sale is also a
great murk up sale unless indeed a re or
a bankruptcy has precipitated ma ters.
And even then real bargains are rare.
A Tender Hearted Dog.
A sick dog took up his abode in the field
behind our house, and after seeing the; poor
thing lying there for some time I took it
food and milk and water. The next day
it was still there, and when I was oing
out to feed it I saw that a small pa,; was
running about it, so I took a whip out
with me to drive it away. Tbe pug pi in ted
itself between me and the sick dojr and
barked at me savagely, but at last I irove
it away, and again gave food and milk
and water to my protege.
The little pug watched me for a few mo
ments, and as soon as he felt quite assured
that my intentions toward tbe sick dog
were friendly it ran to me wagging its
tail, leaped up to my shoulder and licked
my face and hands, nor would it touch
the water till the invalid had had all it
wanted. 1 suppose that it was satisfied
that its companion was in good hands, for
it trotted happily away, and did not ap
pear upon the scene again. Cor. London
Building lor Time.
"Americans build for time, Europeans
for eternity," said Emil Hansick, a guest
of the Laclede. "Go through the Eur ipean
towns and cities and you will find build
ings still in use that were old when Colum
bus sailed from Palos. With ns the usual
life of a building is forty or fifty years. If
it does not fall down of its own acctrd by
that time we get tired of seeing it, pall it
down and put up another, more showy,
but even less substantial. We bui'd for
the day and let the future take care of it
self. The European builds not only for
himself, but for hisdecendants to the tenth
generation. We are little better than
Arabs as yet, pitching our tents, anl but
half deciding whether we will renain.
Later we will build more substantial y."

Deterioration of India Rubber.
In an investigation of the decay of rnb
ber W. Thompson has found that copper
salts, which are sometimes even ust d for
dyeing rubber goods black, have a vt ry in
jurious effect. Metallic copper causes ox
idation and hardening of rubber in contact
with it. Oils containing traces of copper
quickly destroy rubber, and linseed oil
contains an acid that rots rubber :lth.
Only castor oil, in fact, is harmless. Vol
atile substances are emitted during the
oxidation and hardening of rubber, as is
shown by the odor and by the discolora
tion of blotting paper when placed over
rubber that is decaying. New Oi leans

For mere than two centuries it baa been
a fundamental principle of tho aowtCQ
formidt conscience that all instrumental
music on Sundays is sinful, even whea
nsed for a ''religions purpose." Bishop
Earle, in his portrait of a rich "noncon
formist" lady in 1623, says that "she suf
fered not her daughters to learn on the
virginals, because of their affinity with or
gans." The fathers of nonconformity, in
their first admonition to parliament in
1570, gravely informed the lords and com
mons that "organ players came from the
pope, as out of the Trojan horse's belly, for"
the destruction of God's kingdom," which
was their convenient synonym for Presby
terian nonconformity. "That old serpent.
Pope Yitalian," said .the nonconformist
ministers, "brought np organs," and "two
other monsters, Popes Gregory and Gelii
sins, inspired by the devil," were the au
thors of "Plainsong and Pricksong."
When the nonconformist conscience,
some seventy years later, had a parliament
completely at- its own disposal and eager
to satisfy all its demands, commissioners
were sent all over England to destroy the
org.-ins as "al)ominations" in the sight of
the Lord. Evelyn said, in 1054, that they
were then "almost universally demol
ished.' Any one who wishes to know
something in detail of the nonconformist
campaign against music on Sundaysshould
rend the entries in the "Journal of Will
Dowsinp," "the parliamentary visitor,"
who laid waste the Suffolk churches in
1643nnd lt!-14. Dowsing had a warrant from
the Earl of Manchester for demolishing
pictures, painted glass, superstitious im
ages and organs. London Saturday Review.
Some Very Old Pronunciations.
"Laylock," the pronunciation of liluc
once very common, has now almost en
tirely passed away. It is hardly likely to
be found in dictionaries or glossaries, ex
cept such as profess to give provincial vari
ations of spelling. Sixty years ago, how
ever, it was by no means a provincialism
or a mark of the uneducated. I well re
member that Walter Savage Landor al
ways spoke of "layloeks," as did my own
mother and most peopleof that generation.
It belonged to the age. now almost entirely
passed away, which called Rome "Room,"
gold "goold," St. James "St. Jeames,"
with other variations of sound now deemed
vulgar. I have heard my father SAy that
Georfre IV always spoke of "My loyal citv
of Lunnon," while "obleeged" and "cow
cumber" were heard from the most refined
I can distinctly remember on the first
Sunday in Advent, 1825, hearing the of
ficiating clergyman at St. Mary Woolnoth
give out sonorously, when reading the first
lesson, "like a lodge in a garden of cow
cumbers," and my dear old rector, Julius
Charles Hare, twenty years later, adopted
tbe same pronunciation, saying at table,
"Obleege by passing the cowcumbcr."
"Vilets," as a dissyllable for violets, was
equally common among people of good
education. Notes and Queries.
Stedman on Whittier.
Taken for all in all, Whitter, "our bard
and prophet best beloved." that purely
American minstrel, so virginal and so im
passioned, at once t he man of peace and
the poet militant, is the Sir Galahad of
American song. He has read tho hearts of
his own people, and chanted their emotions
and powerfully affected their convictions.
His lyrics of freedom and reform, in his
own justified language, were "words
wrung from the nation's heart, forged at
white heat." Ixingfellow's national poems,
with all their finish, cannot rival the nat
ural art of Whittier's; they lack the glow,
the earnestness, the intense cbaracterir-i-tion
of such pieces as "Randolph of Ro
anoke," Icbabod" and "Tbe Lost Occa
sion." Tbe Quaker bard besides, no less than
Longfellow, is a poet of sympathy. Hu
man feeling, derived from real life ami en
vironment, is the charm of "Snow Bound,"
even more than its absolute transcript of
nature. Years enough have isasseil since
it was written for us to see within its
range it is not inferior to 'The Deserted
Village," "The Cotter's Saturday Night."
and "Turn o' Shunter." Edmund C. Sted

The Whist PlHyers.
They play whist, the beaux in their pow
dered wigs and velvet coats, the ladies in
iheir brocade petticoats and fine stom
achers. The west windows are open; a
fountain plashes in the garden; the flower
beds are liordered with box, and tbe scent
of the box comes in at the open windows.
They play whist. A beau shakes back
the lace frill from his hand as he deals. A
red jewel gleams on his finger. The ladies'
brocades rustle; they frown softly at their
csrds. An hourglass stands on a table in
laid with mother of pearl; the sand in the
honrglass flows silently; the pungent
smell of the box comes in at the open win
dows. They play vahist. A lady leads from her
long suit; a beau takes the trick with a
king. His black eyes flash under his white
wig like eternal youth.
The fountain plashes in the garden; the
pungent smell of the box conies in at the
open windows; the sand in the hourglass
flows as silently as the lives of the players.
They play whist. A beau leads an ace;
his partner trumps. A trick is lost, but
be looks at her and smilus. A trick is lost
but love is immort.il. Mary E. Wilkins
Storuiy Weather fI)r Ililiousness.
G. S. Whitslar, general ageat of tbe
Graham & Morton line, tells of a class of
lake travelers which lie frequently en
counters. "There are people," be. said "who come
to the oflii- utid nsk if I think there is
going to be a storm. If I tell them such
are the indications they buy tickets. Now,
most people want to avoid the lake when
it is rough. I. have asked these people why
they alwuys wanted to travel in rough
weather and they have told me that it
agreed with them. That is, they believe
that a night on the lake, on a rough sea,
relieves them of inliousnet. They watch
the wind, and as surely as it is a nor'easter
they buy tickets. That is their medicine.
It would astonish you to know the number
of such people in Chicago. I used to think
it was a kind -of fad with them, but they
come so often that I have concluded that
they believe in it." Chicago Tribune.
