The democratic house of repre
sentatives of ihe Thirty-seventh
general assemhH of this state put
itself squarely ot. record in favor of
free coinage of silver. As that body
was the first s-traight democratic
house of represei tatives in this state
for years, it it- not only reasona
ble to claim, but practically conclu
sive that it is the best representa
tive of the sentiment of the demo
crats of Illinois that has, expressed
itself since the demonetization of
silver in 1873. The resolutions were
introduced by Hon. Thomas J. Ferns,
of Jersey county. Jan. 13. 19, and
were as follows:

A Sim red Fruit.
One of the m st enrions species of
known fruit is t'.ie "holy or sacred cit
ron" of the Jev.-s. Its virtues are lauded
to the sides, and v is celebrated in leg
end, romance, poetry and song, and
yet it apjwars thai it is never eaten. It
is known in most all oriental countries,
but appears to be most highly esteemed
by tho Moorish Jews of Tnnis and Mo
rocco. On the streets of the last named
city it is sold nt s bout f cents jter fruit.
These fruits are f: Tierally.urchased by
bands of roving pilgrims, the members
of rclijrtsus processions and Jewish
When one of these sac-ntl citrons falls
into the hands of n priest, ho takes it to
the synagogno. w here it is kept to be
used in some emblematic rite dnrirjg the
time of the great f a?t of the tabernacles.
Not only in orien: al countries are these
holy fruits known anil esteemed, but in
Germany, Russia France, Spain and in
England. They are probably used in
American Jewish synagogues to some ex
tent, but such use would lie necessarily
limited. In Engl ind, so I am informed,
good specimens of holy citrons bring as
mnch as 50 shillings each, there being
whole companies which make their im
portation a "side line."
The use of this r.nique fruit is supposed
to be derived fr mi the ir junction con
tained in the twenty-third chapter of the
book of Leviticus Exchange.
New Method of Starting Street Cars.
The- latest met lod of starting street
cars in Denver is said to result in a sav
ing of at least 80 kt cent over the cost
of the ordinary f y stem. The difficulty
of mr.intiiiiing i-chedulo time with a
largo number of cars is well recognized,
and on many line-t if the car be delayed
by an accident for a quarter of an hour
or 20 minutes the whole line will be so
demoralized that schedule time will not
bo overtaken during the whole day. In
the city of Denvc r there are 74 miles of
electrical and 13 miles of cable tracks,
requiring U;: trains in daily operation.
To obviate the inconvenience which a
breakdown of any kind inevitably causes
a system of telephone circuits has been
arranged with arious call points, .11
communicating w ith the head office. Ev
ery conductor on arriving at the termi
nus of the route i mnediately reports the
number of his car to headquarters ar.d
receives in reply liis proper leaving time
and any instructs ns that may be neces
sary. The dispatch clerk is in this way
advised of the whereabouts of each car
and ia very often enabled to fill up a
space of from 30 1 o CO minutes caused by
a "parade." The saving of starters at
the various termini is taken as a setoff
against the exper se of the telephones.

"The man who goes about with a
big shovel and a big basket over his
bhoulder looking for a job at putting in
coal finds less and less to do," said a cit
izen. "The coal wagons which have
bodies that may lie elevated and adjusted
at almost any angle, and which are pro
vided with extension chutes through
which the coal is made to run straight
from the wagon into the coal hole, apjiear
to be multiplying. But of course coal
wont run up hill, and when it is to be
used above the first story it still has to
be carried up stairs. But perhaps the
next thing will lie a telescopic tulie with
a flaring lower end big enough to fit
right over the top of a coal wagon and
provided at its ujkt end with an ap
paratus to exhaust the air. Then when
the tube is iu the window and ou're till
ready, zip! and there yon are, 'Coal de

Russia is so vast and includes so many
races that it might seem well nigh hi ie
less to determine its most ancient inhab
itants. Nevertheless this is a problem at
which Professor Anatola Bogdanov lias
been laboring for the past 25 years, and
which he attempts to solve in a paper
read before the congress of anthropolo
gists at Moscow. The kurgans or tu
muli of central Russia contain the relics
of a tall, strong, dolichocephalic race,
with light brown hair, as well as a short,
smaller bracycephalic race, with dark
brown hair. The blond type preponder
ates in the southwestern districts, and
the brunette in the northwestern. Bogda
nov considers the long heads t,i have been
Slavs, and that the modern Russians of
those parts are an amalgam of the Slavs
with the broader headed race, which is
probably Mongoloid. American Regis

Some one has noted that the adjective

"old." It is "old Harvard." "old Yale,"
"old Dartmouth," and one enthusiastic

Misplacement of a Comma.

than usually anxious over the safety of
her husband, and accordingly handed a
parish clerk a slip one Sunday morning
bearing the words, "Captain Wilson hav

Unfortunately, by the misplacement of
tho comma after the "sea," the conr(ga
