Tery truthfully says:
"If it be true, as reported, that Sec

original estimate for pensions, he ren
dered a timely and useful service to his

The same words from a democratic
journal would start a repuMicnn bowi of
"rebel hatred" and "treason."
Sisce their defeat at the polls lastNo
ember, republicans generally are clam
orous in their demand for civil eervice
reform. It, is a repetition of the crj
raised eight years ago when Grover
Cleveland was firBt elected, but which
melted away in thin air after his defeat
in 1888. President Harrison sierra to bt
pretty well in sympathy with the office
holding, never-let-go crowd, too. Hi
latest order in this line was tte extending
of the civil 86ryice rules to tbe free de
livery department in the rostefflces
throughout thecoantry. Consequently
the letter carriers are congratulating
themselves over the prospect of holding
their present jobs indefinitely. This as
sumption is amusing. It would bonier
on audacity if the present federal em
ployes were really serious in their belief
that they would be left undisturbed. If
there be an; so foolish, Tub Angus ad
vises them not to hog the delusion, but
rather to prepare themselves for reroovnl
when a democratic president is cu'y in

According to the SpriDgfleld Register,
Governor Alt geld is tttking a hold of the
affairs of state with characteristic
Tim and determination. His first official
act Thursday was tbe issuiDg of general
order No. 1 assuming command of the
military forces of the state. Tbe govern
or has asked Col. II. O. Reeve?, rrivatc
secretary to Governor Fifer, to remain a j
short time at tbe office to asJst in some
matters pertaining to the executive de
partment of the state. '
All of the newiy elected state officers
have assumed their respective duties.
Secretary of State Hinrichsen, Auditor
of State Gore, and State Treasurer Rsbj
sey have taken charge of their offices and
appointed their forces of subordinates.
Among the changes made under tbe su
pervision of the state auditor, we note
the appointment of Pike Mocrre, of
Quincy, tnd Daniel Hayden, of Cbiccg' ,
as bank examiners, vice W.H. Robertson
and Mr. Jones, of Rock Island.
The state board of denUl examiners,
composed of R. N. Lawrence, U. Stod
dard Smith, C. A. Kitchen, C. B. Ron
land and Garrett Newkirk have resigned,
and their resignations have been accept
ed by the governor. Tbe dental exam
iners state that they are not prompted
by political motives in resigning, but
that the dental law of 1881 has proved
markedly inadequate to deal with the
conditions now presented and they deem
the incoming administration with a legis
lature in harmony, a fitting occasion to
resign, and hope that the new governor,
backed by tbe legislature tbe board
which he will appoint, will devise plans
for attaining tbe desired results and re
forms. Governor Altgtld has received and
accepted the resignation of Charles Ben,
of Morrison, as commissioner of the state
penitentiary at Joliet.
An order has been issued from tbe ad
jutant general's office arcepting tbe res
ignation of Edward E. Vincent, of
Springfield, as surgeon geceral of the
Illinois National Guard.
Wig for Dolla.
The hair on the ordinary doll is made
from the hair of the Angora goat. This
product is controlled by an English syndi
cate and is valued at $10,000,000 a year.
After the hair is prepared it is sent to
Uunich and made into wla by girls. Hu
man hair is used only for what are known
as the "last dolls" that is, dolls for big
girls, who like to do up their doll's hair in

The Waste In Coat Consumption.
It is agreeable to Iwira that the nitrog
enous matter in. the 4,0X1,000 tons of coal
which are used .every, year by the gas
manufacturing compun es of London is
now being made n consi lerable source of
revenne. The value of sulphate of am
monia ns a fertilizer is now beyond dis
pute. Where nitrogen h is .been deficient
in tbe soil the application of 450 pounds of
sulphate of anunouia to each acre jjave an
increase of nearly four tons of potatoes.
Sulphate of nuimonia, nl hough not quite
so active a fertilizer ns n trate, is held in
tbe soil with greater tenacity. It con
tains '24 per cent, of ammonia, -which is
equal to 20 per cent, of nitrogen. Then
there are the tarry hydrocarbon com
pounds, from which (thanks to the dis
covery of KirkUata and Perkins) beautiful
aniline dyes can be exfrcu ted.
The tar has been a source of such reve
nue to tbe gas companies that it may be
seriously stated that every year there is
more coloring matter sent into the atmos
phere of Iiondon than would dye all the
fabrics woven by English looms within
the same time. If we take the waste of
the hydrocarbon to eerusl 20 per cent, of
the fuel burned, we shall find that in the
9,000,000 tons of coal Imrned in the metrop
olis l.SOO.000 tons of hydrocarbons are lost.

A dozen devices have beet, patented for

met with even partial success, for, the rea
son that puddling -requires intellect as
well as power, and no machine has yet been
Invented that cun think as well as work.
