Uxitep Statel Senator Jones, of
Nevada, who is, first a republican
and second a silver advocate, was in
Wall street. New York, last Satur
day. He sizes up the monetary sit
uation as follows: '-People say what
we want is confidence. Confidence
be golly washed; what the people want
is money, money, money. That's
what they want,' and it's what I
want, and silver is just as good
money as any other. That's the
Speaker Crisp, in his Fourth of
July oration at Tammany hall, de
clared: If there are theasands of unem
ployed workmen in our land, if the
agricultural interests languish, if
trade and commerce are restricted,
if there is a lack of confidence in
financial circles, you can charge it to
the republican party. There are
laws in our statute books today which
are in restriction of trade. Thev ar
republican laws. They are "laws
which have destroyed "the people's
confidence and have upset the
finances. They arc republican laws.
(Jalf-siuko Press and People:
This new Tenth congressional dis
trict contains in the counties com
posing it the bulk of the Swede pop
ulation outside Chicago. It is the
Swede vote that gives the republicans
their majority in the district. No
more than sheer justice would dic
tate that a leading Swede like A. W.
Uerggren should receive the republi
can nomination for congress next
year. Of course Post, and Carr, and
(test will all want the nomination,
and then call on the Swedes to elect
them. The Swedes hold the balance
of power in the district and they
ought to know how to use it.
()i!;axizei labor all over the coun
try, says the Springl'eld Register is
unanimously and heartily indorsing
Gov. Altgeld's pardon of the so called
"anarchists." The Chicago Trades
and Labor assembly uniting others
adopted this week a long series of
resolutions indorsing and approving
the governor's course. The language
employed in these resolutions is so
strong that not the slightest doubt
about its sincerity can be entertained.
Of course, the press throughout the
country and that portion of the press
which is opposed to Gov. Altgeld
from purely political motives, will
ignore this endorsement or attribute
it to some obscure band of desperate,
blood-thirsty anarchists. On the
contrary the Trades and Labor as
sembly, the Chicago Dispatch de
clares, represents nearly all branches
of organized labor and is the typical,
representative body of Chicago work -
ingmen. It speaks net for any trade
or profession or line of work, but for
organized labor as a whole, and its
indorsement carries more weight
than that of any other local organi
zation. The men who adopted the
commendatory resolutions by a unan
imous vote have no sympathy for
anarchists or anarchy. They believe
in justice and fair play and are not
swayed by predjudice or coerced by
demagogic considerations, which
force many into open condemnation
of a matter they secretly approve.
INGENIOUS BIRDS' NtSTS.
Soma Carious Strnrturrs 1 he .11 ul
lien's Floating; Home.
Up In one of the river valleys not
many mile.i distant are many wa'er
blackbirds, which weave unique
nests among the tules, savs a :-an
Diego tottf r to the Christian Union.
A specimen of unusual desig-n which
I discovered not long since was bound
about with meshes to the upright
tule stems, laced over, under, in and
out, in ths most intricate manner,
until the little basket-shaped re
ceptacle wt.s of the desired size, 'lhe
whole was then roofed with a second
basket-shaped structure, likewise of
tule fibers, stretched across. The
entire workmanship was most per
fect, and that small canopy top
proved very effective in shutting ou
the sun's rays.
In this river valley I recently made
acquaintante with the mud "hen of
the grebe family. I had met her be
fore, but nsver had opportunity to
s.udy her, tnd knowledge of her hab
its is exceedingly interesting. Here,
under the trees on a little laguna's
bank, I havu watched for hours us
she has b.-en swimming, divinir,
splashing, darting, fluttering and
spattering foam from her lifted wings,
andhuddlin? her young up on the
bank to cat grass in the sun. She
has no beauty, but those tiny canary
colored mul chickens, tipped with
soft down, are rather pretty.
The mud hen's nest is a weedy,
reedy, fibrous structure, composod
mostly of do id, gray ends of tules and
miscellaneous matter, and is usually
placed far out from shore, without
anchorage, v herc it drifts to and fro,
cradling its eggs easily. It presents
to the eye si nply the semblance of a
mass of wasting vegetation. One who
knows birds well, and who has made
them a study from these same trees
on the laguna's bank, tells me that
he has man; times waded out to
search for a nest, and espied it only
when sweeping away with his hand
what he supposed to bo accumulated
rubbish of loaves, but that proved
the cradlo's counterpano with which
tho careful -mother had shielded her
Here eggs, or young, deposited on
the bottom, were usually half sub
merged, the water oozing through
every interstice as through a sieve,
and no sign of a parent bird near.
Retreating to a distance, it was often
necessary to watch closely, and
through a glass, when presently the
mother grebe might be discovered
sailing up swiftly, uncovering the
floating cradlj and shyly settling
down to brean its contents. When
they were evidently sufficiently
warmed she covered them carefully
with more debris and sailed away as
swiftly among the water reeds.
Tho oriole's is one of the daintiest
nests found in California twoj On
has recently been built by an aesthet
ic coupie in a magnincent tan palm
in private grounds, where great care
is taken not to frighten the birds
away. This icnsile. airv tliinn- i nf
the pale, straw-colored fibres of the
paira, anu is b. great Deauty. Another
parent pair h.ive chosen a rnllnrl km.
ana leaf for a resting place. This has
neen smcned tightly across from side
to side (some .hing in ball-cover fash
ion) with palm threads. The sewing
implements must have been dex
terously handled, the result is so trig
and complete- No more cunning
sicht can be imagined than th henrU
of the baby birds peering out from
the lance-shajied roll of this living
nesi on itie green banana tree.
John Fitzgerald is a hard-headed,
matter-of-fact boy who has just en
tered the higt school. If you talk
with him you must be careful how
you express yourself. The other
evening his father was reading aloud
a book of tra"els. The author was
describing a Christmas which ho
had passed in Austria. "It was a
rather gloomy day," he wrote. "We
had a good dinner and did our best
to be merry, but it was hard to feel
very jolly. We were 10,00;) miles
from home, and " "What's that?"
interrupted Master John. "Ten
thousand miles from home! Impossi

of tho earth is only 8,003 miles."

Skill, Candor and Personal At
Are the Fundamental Forces Which
the Scott Medical Institute
Have Used to Build up
Their Very Large
WHY THEY Sl'CCEED.
The remakable success which the
Scott Medical Institute has achieved
in every department of its practice
has created a good deal of comment,
not only among the people who are
afflicted with chronic diseases, but
also among brother practition
ers and the question is often asked:
"What is the cause of this large
measure of success?" The answer
may be stated in a few words. In
the first place the physicians of the
Scott Medical Institute are skilled
In the second place they give their
whole time to their patients and to
their profession. When they are not
in the consultation room in attend
ance upon their patients, they are
discussing the peculiar features of
individual cases, so that they may
be ready to apply -the result of their
deliberations in the consulting room.
This is the whole secret of their
