Thursdat, Jcne 8. 1893.
The Illinois board of World's Fair
commissioners have designated Fri
day, the 16th inst., as Illinois press
day. Vice-President Stevenson, Sen
ator Palmer, Gov. Altjjelfl and other
distinguished gentlemen have been
invited to be present and make ad
dresses. Secretarv Pavne sends out
the cheering announcement that an
elegant lunch will be served in the
Illinois building, and everything
done to entertain the members of the
MrscATiNE News-Tribune: Some
republicans believe that they
have found a formidable presiden
tial ticket in ex-Minister Lincoln and
Gov. McKinlev. but w hether it should
be Lincoln and McKinlev or McKin
lev and Lincoln is not settled. Min
ister Lincoln would not be the man
to conjure votes with that Father
Abraham was, and McKinlev well,
his bill led his party to defeat in
1892, and it is not believed that his
name would prove more talismanic
Politicians of true republican
faith are pleased by the shrewdness
with which ex-Senator Piatt is man
aging the presidential boom of ex-
Vice President Morton. They re
Card Mr. Morton's nomination to be
governor of New York as a foregone
conclusion, think that there is an
excellent chance to win, and say that
Mr. Morton's success in the state
contest will make him the inevitable
republican nominee for the presiden
cy in 1896.

It is noticeable in government cir
cles in Washington that the "condi
tion of the treasury" has almost
ceased to be a topic of active conver
sation. The "gold reserve" has been
trenched upon and has retrenched,
and has been trenched upon again,
but the country is dead to the agony.
Clerks have quit leaving their desks
to stand in the corridors and discuss
the cravitv of the "financial situa
tion." In the treasury department
there is but little feeling of uneasi
ness. Talk of a midsummer session
of congress to vaguely "relieve the
financial situation" is noticeably air
Kent. The vast and complex ma
chinery of the government appears
to lie running along with a noiseless
ness due to oil and ball bearings.
The only tiling that breaks into the
steady hum is the occasional plunk
of a division chiefs head falling into
the waste basket.
A Money Saving Device.
Lewis Lelantl, manager of the new Ki-n-rost
hotel, Chicago, has invented a money
saving device which hotel nud restaurant
men, butchers, dairymen, creamers mid
others interested in cold storage through
out the country should know about. His
experience with bi bills for many years as
a hotel man led to t he discovery that if the
Iceboxes and cold storage rooms in hotels,
etc., were constructed near an outer wall
instead of in the center of the building, and
hole or window made therein, allowing
the admittance of cold ah from the out
side, meats, butter, milk and cream there
in could be preserved perfectly and kept
fresh and cool, making the use of ice al
most wholly unnecessary during winter.
Hotel men and others pay enormous bills
for ice. Mr. Leland is adopting this piaa
w bis new hotel and says it has been nam
in all the Leland houses with success, re
ducing the cost of ice to a mere pittance in
void weather. lie has no patent ou the
acfaeme, bat gives it to the world as a prin
ciple that has been tested with satisfactory

SAWING DOWN A BIG TREE.
Bw the Mighty Giants of the) Northwest
ern Forests Are Laid Low.
In a Washington forest two lowers were
it work, each standing on a springboard,
the end of which was slipped into a notch
cut in the base of the tree four or five feet
from the ground. They spattered kerosene
oil upon the saw, which had begun to move
hard. Then after awhile the sound of its
motion changed "from a dry grate to a dull,
soft mumble," and a thick stream of tur
pentine oozed out of the cleft. "Pitch!"
exclaimed both men in a tone of disgust.
"There's barrels of it in this tree," said
one, "and it's as slow as molasses in January."
" They settled themselves to work again,
but the saw moved with heavy resistance.
"You'd better get the can, John," said
the older man, and the other dropped from
"Jest as well try to saw through a stick
of tally candy as this kind of a tree," ex
plained the waiting logger. "He's gone for
the water can."
Jim came back presently carrying a leaky
oilcan heavy with water. A wedge was
driven into the tree well above the saw, and
the can hung upon the wedge so that the
water leaked down upon the saw as it
worked in and out.
"What good does It do?" I asked Incred
nlously. "Don't kqow,M returned Jim, laboring at
the saw, "but It makes awful easy saw
ing." "Sort o freezes the pitch," says the other
As a matter of fact, the saw did move
more freely, drawing in a little cold water
each time, and the "frozen" pitch, mixed
with water, frothed out in a white foam.
After a long time of heavy sawing the teeth
began to catch more Arte)", and a few more
moments work brought the saw very near
to the "under cut."
The fir stands beautifully erect. The log
gers squint up its length and say oracular
ly which way it will fall. They move the
axes and can out of harm's way and spring
back to their perches.
The brooding silence of the forest is abso
lute, save for the steady grate of the saw
in and out, like stertorous breathing. Erect
and motionless the tree Waits.
The men nod to each other; the sawing
ceases; one handle is slipped off, and the
saw drawn all the way through and laid
back of the tree. One man springs down
and lifts his perch out and hands a gnat
mallet to the other, who still stands upon
his springboard. The mallet is lifted, and
a loud, sonorous chant rings through the
stillness: "All clear ahead! Timber!"'
Then the mallet f;ills once, twice, thrice
upon the wedges. There is a slight creak
ing; the logger flings the mallet aside and
rushes backward; the cleft widens; the
great green head stirs. Then, with a rush
ing, thundering roar, mingled with the i
sound of the rending fibers of the trunk,
the giant tears his mighty arc through the
air. A cloud of blackness envelops the fall.
The air is dark with dust and moss and fly
The roar is superb as the tree crashes its
way through the underbrush, louder than
cannon, but with no harshness more like
some mighty breaker that has climbed 10,-
000 miles of sea to beat its heart out on a
lonely shore. Atlantic Monthly.
The Growth of Pine Tree.
The pine is a tree which requires a great
deal of light. Its top towering alxve the
other trees in the forest demonstrates this.
Trees which grew up iu the natural forest
and must, therefore, in their earlier years
hare teen densely shaded show far less
growth both in height and diameter than
those which grew up after fire or on cleared
land. Thus the great majority of the trees
cut in the largest pine operation on Penob
scot waters this year were from 200 to 223
years old, while trees of similar dimensions
cut in the city of Deering ran from 130 to
Starting all alike, md with no obstruc
tion between them nnd the sun, the growth
of the latter was very rapid. Many of them
yearly grew more than a foot in length and
a half inch in diameter during their early
life, while in later years a thinner deposit
of wood on a larger area produced a far
greater accumulation of material. In re
cent years these trees, now about two feet
through at the butt, had been growing an
inch in diameter in from 8 to 12 years.

A Pair of Lost Glasses.
Book agents sometimes meet with amus
ing incidents. A story was told the other
day of an agent who was selling Bibles.
It was said that he called at a house and
was met at tbe door by an elderly woman.
When asked if she wanted to purchase a
Bible, she replied that she had one. The
agent, thinking that he would show her
the superiority of the book that he was sell
ing, asked her to let him see the one she
had. After searching for some little time
the finally found it. It was covered with
dust, and ou opening it she exclaimed.

In a western justice court a question aris

sel in reading an authority to the court came
across the words sui generis, which he
translated in all soberness to the court as
meaning that the officer so described had a
rittht to sue generally. Tbe judge accepted
the translation as perfectly correct until a
smile among the lawyers present raised a
doubt in his mind. Green Bag.
An Absentminded Teacher.
Neander's sister, who kept house for the
Berlin professor, took fresh apartments
nearer the university, as she thought the
distance too great for her brother. A few
days after their removal he complained of
the long and tiring walk, and it then turned
out that he had gone first to the old lodg
ings and so around to the university.
