Deadheadlsm at tbe Fair.
The whole story of the "pass evil"
has been toM by Mr. Tucker of the
bnreau of admissions, of the World's
lair, and it is not so dreadful a story
after all. On the strength of. Mr.
Tucker's statement we must declare
that there are no unnecessary passes
in force. The grand total seems
enormous nearly 35,000 but on ex
amination it is found not to be un
necessarily large. It is only in pro
portion to the size of the exposition.
Here is the detailed table which Mr.
Tucker has given to the Chicago

While everybody is talking about
finance and currency, and the repub
lican preis and republican partisans
are trying with a loud voice to show
where the democratic party stands
on the question, and are claiming
that the democratic party is respon
sible for the present financial uneasi
ness, it is a good thing to get down
to bed rock. Here is the democratic
faith on the money question, as laid
down in the national democratic plat
form upon which last fall the democ
racy swept the country:
We denounce the republican legis
lation known as the Sherman act of
1890 as a cowardly makeshift, fraught
with possibilities of danger in the
future, which should make all of its
supporters, as well as its author,
anxious for its speedy repeal. We
hold to the use of both gold and sil
ver as the standard money of the
country, and to tbe coinage of both
gold and silver without discriminat
ing against either or charge for min
tage, but the dollar unit of coinage
of both metals must be of equal in
trinsic and exchangeable value, or be
adjusted through international agree
ment or bv snch safeguards of legis
lation as shall insure the mainten
ance of the parity of the two metals
and the equal power of every dollar
at all times in the markets and in the
payment of debts; and we demand
that all paper currency shall be kept
at par with and redeemable in such
coin. We insist upon this policy as
especially necessary for the protec
"n of the farmers and the laboring
tsses, the lirst and most defense-
victims of unstable money and a
Flowers Artlflelaslly Scented.
The last trick with flowers is quite
as revolting to the lover of nature as
tvas the barbar us custom of produc
ing artificial, tints by chemical pro
cesses, an innovation which produced
the celebrated green carnation of last
season, but which was condemned at
once, and has now fallen into disrepute.
This year flowers are to be artificially
scented. A scientist has discovered a
method of impregnating the petals of
a scentless blossom with a perfume of
any kind that may be desired. The
discovery may result in the adoption
of artificial scenting, but the fashion
is not likely to last long.
A remarkable article namely, fish
flour has been brought forward in tbe
last few years. It is not as yet man
ufactured in any great quantity, as
the article is still new in tbe market,
mnd consequently there is no great de
mand for it. The flour is prepared
from dried fish of the quantity, thor
oughly desicated, and then ground in

Ttu MllUt 8jed Bet aaA the Caavalter
d'Eoa A Dramatic Exploit,
A practice was for a long time
prevalent la Genoa, and from it, in
U probability, the old system of lot
teries originated. The five senators
who, with the doge, governed the
republic, were chosen by lot from
those nobles who were qualified, to
the number of IIP- On the result of
thp. aeloction a great variety of bets
was based. The sums risked were
enormous, for the populace wagered
upon the chance of its governors
with the same avidity as the wealthy.
In the year 1634 the parliament of
Dole in France, was called upon to
decide an extraordinary wager be
tween two inhabitants of Pasmes.
One of the two had agreed that if tbe
other would pay him twenty-four
Cranes in hand he would furnish him
with a certain number of grains of
millet in proportion to the nunber of
cixildren who 6hould bo born within
a certain extent of country and be
baptized during one year.
For the first child he was to fur
nish one grain, tfo for the second,
four for the third, and so on. always
doubling the number of grains for
each successive birth. Tho number
of children born was 6ixty-six, and
the proportion of grains to be sup
plied was so enormous that the party
bound by the bet demanded the can
celing of the contract as being
founded upon an impracticable oondi
tion. Tho court decided, after hav
ing made the necessary calculation,
that the wager was naturally impossi
ble to be fulfilled, and it consequently
decreed that the party who had re
ceived the 24 L on condition of an
event which he declared himself
unable to meet, should return that
sum to his opponent and should pay
an additional sum of 24 f. , which was
the only chance of loss incurred by
tho winner if the millet had been
Previous to the passing of the bet
ting acts, actions used to bo allowed
in this country, says the London
Standard, and Lord Mansfiold tried
several. One was whero two spend
thrift, young noblemen wagered
which of their two fathers
would die first, and the verdict
was given for Lord March.
Another famous .case was that of the
Chevalier d'Eon, tho point at issua
being whether the chevalier, who.
though a military officer, was of ef
feminato appearance, was a man or a
woman. The case was heard before
Lord Mansfield, and tho verdict given
that ho was a woman. Although the
verdict was afterward set aside on
legal grounds, it was allowed to set
tle many other bets laid on the same
question. According to a contem
porary authority, this decision was
instrumental in retaining in this
country no less a sum than 75.000.
which would otherwise have been
transmitted to Paris. The chalier,
after declaring that she (or he) bad
no interest whatever in these bets
upon the question of sex, left Eng
land for France, und assuming female
attire, enjoyed a pension from the
French government for having been
long a spy of Louis XV. till the
breaking out of tho revolution in
1790- lie then came to England,
and being in great distress lived with
a lady uf reputation as her compan
ion, but on his death in 1310 he was
found, on post-mortem examination,
to be a man.
Some fifty years ago John Sloman,
the actor, who was then manager of
the fivo theatres comprised in what
was called the Kent circuit, made a
bet of $100 that he would act the
part of Tom in tho interlude of "In
trigue' and sing a comic song at
three of his theaters on the samo
night between the hours of 7 and 11.
The theaters selected were those of
Canterbury. Rochester and Maidstone,
between which places there was at
that time no railway communication.
On the appointed evening tho cur
tain roso-at the Canterbury house ex
actly at 7; Sloman went through his
part and sang a comic song, then
jumped into a postchaise, and made
for Rochester as fast as four good
horses could tako him, covering the
distance twenty-six miles in an
hour and forty minutes, changing
horses at Sittingbourno. Part cf the
company had been sent on in advance,
and they were reads t commence di
rectly the manager arrived. The in
terlude was played, the song sung,
and S'oman posted to Maidstone, a
distance of eight miles, in forty-four
minutes." Here ho was welcomed by
a house crammed from pit to' gallery,
and accomplished his task with fif
teen minutes to spare.
Wa what a witty woman called that p riod of
life which all mldJle-a;oi pass through, and dur
1MB shlch so ininjr soem t J think they mnst suffer-that
nature mtesded it so. The same lady
added : "If you don't believe in 'woman's nffer
age,' there Is one ballot which will effectually
defeat It Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription."
This is true, not only at the peril d of middle
life, hut at all ages when women suffer fr m
nterine diseases, pat fnl Irregularities, inflam
mation, ulceration or pro1apos, the Faverlte
Prescription" so strengthens the weak or dis
eased organs and enriches tbe blood, that years
of hearth and enjoyment are added to life.
