Sec rata i:v Herbert has correct
and thoroughly democratic ideas
about the relations that should exist
lwtween naval officers and the United
States government, as his order that
no more leaves of abscjice be granted
naval officers for the purpose of al
lowing then to enter private employ
fully proves. This practice, like
many other questionable ones, is of
republican origin, and has grown in
to almost a scandal. Under it naval
officers who have acjaiired special
knowledge along certain lines after
long study, at government expense,
have secured leaves of absence, in
some cases for as long as four years,
on two-thirds pay in order that they
might sell their special knowledge to
the highest bidder among those to
whom it would be most valuable
the contractors who do business with
the navy department. Secretary
Herbert says that hereafter when any
naval oflieer desires to accept private
employment he must resign his com
mission before doing so, and every
rood democrat will sav. amen!
Tliree Great Reforms.
The Louisville Courier Journal de
clares for three reforms in their or
der of importance as follows:
The Courier Journal says: "To
tax the farmer for the benelit of the
manufacturer; to refuse him access
to his best markets; to deny him the
fullest freedom of exchange, is to
keep him in a condition of partial
servitude and to deprive him of ad
vantages to which in this country the
tiller of the soil is naturally en
titled." The battle for tariff reform has been
won. An era of equal tradeis as sure
torome in the near future. The
American people have declared them
selves. The present congress may
prove recreant to its trust and its
members retire to oblivion, but the
next congress and the next will have
a majority of members in favor of
this reform. We believe that the pres
ent congress will take the initiative
Steps, however, in the direction
pointed out by the sovereign people.
Koad reform comes next in the
Courier-Journal's scheme, and the
agitation in its favor will result in
o-ood. The benefits of good roads are
thus outlined by our Louisville con
Further than this, good roads save
mOnev. a hey reduce to a minimum
the cost of an exchange. We doubt
not it costs a man more today to car
ry his produce to a railroad station
than it does to carry these same pro
ducts uu nines, lo show what we
mean: It costs as much to deliver in
the citv a ton of coal as it does to
carry that .coal 100 miles on a rail
road. This expense if saved or re
duced would add much to the com
forts of farm life.
Here are the Courier-Journal's ar
guments in favor of its third re

. Free delivery for rural communi
ties would make intercommunica
tion with neij;bbors much easier and
more certain, just as there is an in
crease in local mail matter with
eyery increase in the number of daily
services. The first benelit is this
bringing together of local communi
ties; the next is that it brings the
farm nearer to the city.
Hut it is said the expense would
be immense and create a deficit to be
made good by taxation.
On the contrary, such a system
would be as much certainly self-supporting
as has been .free delivery in
the cities. Experiments made by
Mr. Postmaster General Wanamaker
have demonstrated this bevond all

The microscopic diamonds made by Hf
Ilenri Moissan are not the first real

announced that he was making experi
ments in this direction and had obtained
Moissan, however, was the first to form
n gtm by means of the high temperature
of the electric furnace, though the idea
of doing so is not exactly novel. Moissan
obtains a temperature of from 3.000 to
4 ,('00 degrees centigrade in his electric
crucible and fuses iron or silver, -which
absorbs the carbon of sugar. When tho
fused metal cools, part of the carbon
separates from it again in the form of
crystals, black or white that is to say,
black diamond or carbonado and ordi
nary, clear diamond.
The crystallization seems to bo facili
tated by pressure, which is produced by
the expansion of the 6ugar carbon as it
cools. The diamond crystals were ex
ceedingly minute and quite unfit for
jewelry. Moreover, the process is very
expensive. Manchester Times.
Getting Measured For a Gun.
A fact -which is not generally known
outside of sporting circles is that a gun
ner who seeks to do the best work ho is
capable of requires to be measured for
his gun in the same way as he would bo
for his suit of clothes. To facilitate this
operation, a new adjusting gun has been
devised. The bend and castoff of the
gun are adjusted by means of screws,
and tho points of each are placed in
grooves running parallel to the line of
the butt. The length of the butt is also
adjusted by screws in the heel. Tho
length and bend of the stock can in this
way be regulated to the length of neck
and arm of the 6hooter, as well as to tho
various special requirements to which
his 6tyle of shooting may give rise.

reason of them family rows is that they

Ju':.c!n-; and' Karly Art.
It may create some surprise that we
regard tho dance as the earliest form of
art, or even that we allow it any place
among the fine arts. To many it will
seem a kind of sacrilege to combine in
the same category, however broad, such
extremes as a dancing savage and a
painting of tha last judgment, and if
the connection must be made eome
would choose to uinke it along other
lines than tlios j of art. But, in truth,
the dance supplies us with the key, so to
speak, of the development of the fine
arts. David J. Hill in Popular Science
There is more catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last lew vears was supposed to be in
curable. For a jrrcat many years
doctors pronounced it a local disease
and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with Io
cal treatment, pronounced it incura
ble. Science has proven catarrh to
be a constitutional disease, and there
