The Teoria Journal says that if

President Harrison will ioin in the
inauguration ceremonies and remain
at the White house with Mrs. McKee
to receive Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland.
Immediately after the inauguration
ceremonies, accompanied by Mr. and
Mrs. McKee and their family, he will
go direct from the White house to
the railway station, and will leave
Washington for Indianapolis by an
early afternoon train.
The Cleveland administration left
a surplus of $100,000,000 in the
treasury. Four years of extrava
gance, bounty giving, pension job
bery and billion dollar congresses
have dissipated this almost incon
ceivable sum and a deficit has taken
its place. More than this, the gov
ernment is again obliged to resort to
the money lenders, for this is the
significance of the Sherman bond
selling bill. But the corruptionists,
the vote buyers, the bounty benefi
ciaries have had a good time. Uncle
Sam has had a great spree, and it is
followed by an equally clear case of
'It is an ill wind that blows no
one good," and it is not unlikely that
the emperor of Germany may find it
necessary to remove the duties on
corn and meat in order to conciliate
consumers and secure popular favor
for his military bill. Should this re
sult follow the conflict in the reich
stag it will give an impetus to our
erports of corn and pork from which
the American farmer will derive
great' advantage, not greater, how
ever, than that which a large propor
tion of the German people will derive
from the cheapening of good food.
As in all his appointments, Presi
dent Cleveland has chosen well in
reference to his private secretary.
Henry T. Thurber of Detroit, is a
man of excellent attainments and
ample qualifications for the position.
He is a member of the law firm of
Dickinson, Thurber & Stevenson,
Detroit, and is a graduate of the
University of Michigan, where he
was a classmate and friend of the
Hon. Ben T. Cable. Mr. Thurber
comes of a long line of democratic
ancestors. His father was the late
Hon. Jefferson G. Thurber, ex
speaker of the Michigan house, and
for many years one of the prominent
figures of the party in this state.
The Arrangement of Leaves,
The general arrangement of the leaves
on limbs and stalks of trees and plants
secures between each sufficient space to
prevent one leaf from interfering with
another. And not only are leaves so ar
ranged as to exist independently of each
other, but in a perioral way tLt?y have
taken npoa th-melvs the forms best
adapted to secure the maximum of sun
light as it is Hhoweicd nuoii thftin in dif
ferent latitudes. At the equator, where
the eaa'a rays are verticttl, vre find large
flat leaves, lik those of the banana,
plantain and tie various secies of the
Fartlicr north, wher sunlight strikes
at an angle, small leaves and pine
"needlea" aro found. Then, apain, note
the peculiarity of the Australian gum
tree instead of exposing their broad
faces to the sun the edges only are so
turned. Were it otherwise the sun
would rob them of all their moisture, it
being a well known fact that the gum
tree grows in tho driest region on earth.

The Larguoge of Animals.
It used to le told in the fairy tales
that the hero could hear the grass grow
and speak with the animals. In reality
it is not likely that we shall ever develop
the sense of he iring sufficiently to hear
the grass grow, but it is quite likely that
we shall be al le to converse with the
beasts of the f eld. But do the beasts
have a language? Ho would be bold in
deed who would deny it point blank.
We observe all around us too many in
dications of conscious communication
between them t ) have a right to Bay "no"
absolutely. To be sure, some animals
are silent, totally, it seems. But may
they not convey their "thoughts" in some
waj- for instai.ee, as the deaf mutes do?
Or may they not use a secret language,
one like that c f lovers, employing ges
tures and looks'- When we speak of lan
guage in this connection, it must bo un
derstood that we do not mean articulate
speech. We ta io the word in its broad
est sense as an expression for the means
of mental communication existing be
tween one creat are and another. Copen

Asking Qnrstlons of tbe Cuckoo.
"In Denmark," said Augustus L
Schneider of &.n Antonio, Tex., at the
Lindell, "when tbe voice of the cuckoo
is heard in the woods in the springtime
every girl and boy kiss their hands and
ask, 'When, csickoo, when shall I be
married?' The old folks, wearied with
disease and sge, inquire, 'Cuckoo,
cuckoo, when s mil I be released from
this world's ca -eV And the bird con
tinues to sing 'cuckoo' as manv times as
years will elapse before the objects of
theso desires come to pass. And as some
old people live to become advanced in
year a, and many of tho girls die old
maids, and tho boy3 find bachelors'
graves, the poor cuckoo has so much to
do in answering the questions put to her
that t he has no time to make ber nest.

Well rid For ricking.
Colonel Ebenezer Sproat, who was
bom in Uiddlcborough, Mass., in 1752,
served through tho Revolutionary war
with distinction and being a soldier him
self naturally thought that soldiers en
gaged in their country's defense deserved
to be handsomely treated. His father,
it appear, kept a tavern. Early in tho
war, whil. Ebenezer was a captain, ho
was at home on a short furlough, and
one day three privates, on their way
home from the army, called at the house
for a cold luncheon.
Mrs. Spvoat set on the table some
bread and cheese, with the remains of
tho family dinner. Ebenezer thought
this rather scanty fare for hungry men.
especially as the bones were already
pretty bare. However, the men satis
fied their appetites and asked what was
to pay. Captain Sproat answered that
he did not know, he wmld ask his moth
er, and going to the kitchen door he

"About a shilling, I suppose," she an
swered. He went back to tho room, took from
the drawer 3 shillings, and with a smil

same time wishing them good day and a
When they had been gno a few min
utes, Mrs. Sproat returned and aske.l
Ebenezer what he had done with the
money that the men had paid him.
"Paid me!" said the captain, with an
air of amazement. "Didn't I ask you
what it was worth to pick those bones,
and didn't you say a shilling? I thought
it little enough for such a job and
handed them the money from the till,
and they are gone."
Ebenezer was his mother's favorite
son, and 6he accepted the matter as a
good joke to be borne without complain

Spoiling a Good Story.
"An ancient Persian king," said the
doctor, "had brought before him a trai
tor to the throne, who, after a brief hear
ing, was condemned to lie strangled.
" 'Mercy, O king!" cried the unhappy
" 'No,' responded the king sternly.
"You have conspired against me, and
you must pay the penalty with your life.
The clock is now trembling on the stroke
of 12. When it sounds the hour, you
must bid farewell to earth.'
"Quick as thought the prisoner turned
to the clock, which stood by the throne,
and with a mighty push threw it from
its pedestal, and it fell with a crash to
" 'I bow to your will, O king!" he
said calmly. 'When this clock strikes 1
will die, and not before.'
"As a trib..to to his presence of mind
the king sp.-'-ed the prisoner's life, and
after a brief imprisonment gave him his
"Quite interesting," exclaimed a lady
when tho narrator had finished.
"Show8 that there is nothing new un

"Humph yes." said a small, quiet
man in the corner after the comments
had run their course. "Very good story,
and I hate to spoil it, but I must do it"
"What?" exclaimed the story teller.
"Yes, must do it. There were no
clocks in ancient Persia, so the prisoner
could not have smashed one." London
An Invitation Far Dolly.
"Here is an invitation from Mrs. E.
for a children's party, Dolly," said a
mother, handing her little girl a note.
"See how nicely you can answer it your

off and in a few moments returned with
the following: "Miss Dolly A. cannot
accept Mrs. B.'s kind invitation, as she
has something else to do that she likes
"Now, bow can I teach that child con

"I should not call it conventionality,
but consideration for the feelings of oth

be truthful." rejoined the friend. "There
is a great deal said about society's white
lies, but I am quite sure that children
are too genuinely honest not to detect
the difference between the false and the
true, and there is no danger of a child's
becoming utruthful by using the for

A Woman Rabbi.
A year or two ego Miss Ray Frank of
Oakland, Cal., told what the would do if
ehe were a rabbi. It was a vigorous
article clear and unerring in its shafts
of criticism. As she proposes to study
now for the Jewish pulpit, she will have
an opportunity to practice as well as
preach, and there is little doubt, judging
from her literary work, that she will
prove a decided addition to the Jewish
ministry. Some new influence undoubt
edly is needed today that shall refine, up
lift and render more spiritual the syna
gogue life, and who would deny to the
cultured Jewess that privilege of the
pulpit, which not every Jewish preacher
unhappily appreciates aright? With the
appearance of crltr ! women in our
synagogues, pulpits wul schools a new
era may be anticipated. Jewish Mes
