A Mpngp I rom the IViipli-.
Senator I'.lafklmrn is a silver man
and opposed to the repeal bill. Hut
Senator lilacklmrn has heard from
his constituents. lie has just re
turned from Kentucky, where he has
been attending a meeting of con
federate veterans. From them he
brought a message to southern demo
cratic senators, which wrought con
sternation among the silver men
when he delivered it in an eloquent
HjM'cch on Wednesday.
The substance of the message is
that the people want the senate to
vote: that their patience is worn out:
that they will not look tolerantly
upon longer continued obstruction.
Further, he told his fellow southern
senators that the southern people
want their democratic president
sustained and supported by
their democratic senators. and
that they will surly resist
and punish anv obstruction which
tends to break down the administra
tion and bring it and the present con
gress into contempt for inability to
conduct legislation and government.
The Kentucky senator declared
his own continued opposition to
naked repeal, and made a reference
to compromise a thing now out of
the question but opposed with all
his might any further obstruction or
delay. He urged an immediate vote,
whatever its result might be. This,
he is confident, is the demand of the
people, and he rigbtly holds it to be
a demand which the senate is bound
to respect. 1
Now here I am In the good old place
Yes, little mother, I'm here to stay.
let me hold yo ir hair against my face
And kiss botli cheeks In the dear old way.
Just look at nit hard I'm well and strong;
Just feel my nrins they'll stand the test;
I'll go to the ki chen where I belong; .
You go to the porch and rest.
Now hear, little mother, you dear little mother.
Sit under the vines and rest.
I liked mv tenc lers. I liked my books.
I had my share of the pranks and fun.
But my heart c ime back to the sweet home
And rested w th you when the day was done.
I used to think .vhat you had for tea;
Just what u were doing and how you were
And somehow or other It seemed to me
You didn't tnl e half enough nest.
You sly little m ther, you spry little mother,
I'm going to h:ive you rest.
Dear little moth r, it brines the tears
Whenever I t. ink what I've let you do.
You've planned for my pleasure years and
It's time I phmned n little for you.
So drop that npron iiml smooth your hair;
Heiul, viMt or i.nit--what suits you best;
Lean bark in yo ir chair, let go your care.
And roally nn truly rot.
You neat little i: other, you sweet little mot her.
Just take a vai ATinn and rest.

The r. -autv of Wrinkle.
And now an authority inveighs against
steaming tl:e f ice as a preventive against
wrinkles, ;;!lejing that this is the swift- J
est and surest process by which to pro- !

of that as you strive to of the outer layer

The Natives Had Scruilcn.
Once an ami sing story was told me
by a South sea trader, writes Mrs. Rob
ert Louis Stevei son. lie had been in the
habit of carry ng all sorts of tinned
meats, which tie natives bought with
avidity. Each tin was branded with a
colored picture a cow for beef, a sheep
for mutton and i fish for sardines.
It happened that the iirni who fur
nished the mutton thought it a good
plan t change their labels, that their
goods might be more easily dUtitignisheu
from others. The mark

Of nil tho "tournaments" I ever saw,
one among the " lairy maids" at an agri
cultural show w is perhaps the last to
associate itself with that heroic proced
ure which such a word suggests. There
were about 40 of them armed with
"churns" and started at the same mo
ment to make butter against time. Each
came provided with a watch, and the
temptation was almost irresistable to
turn the handle t f the machine as quick
ly as possible. E ut no, butter must be
"humored," not (.riven. The silent lists
were filled with the provokingly delil
erate "flip, flop" of 40 churns." One of
the slowest comb itants won the race. I

In th Ca.icasus mountains there
are many wild, barbarian fibes of
people, whose tough ways would
make the heart of a civilized mother
stand still with fear if her child were
to be treated as the people of the
Caucasus treat their children every
day. The first plaything piven to a
Caucasian baby is a dagger. This is
presented to him as soon as he can
walk. For an hour or two each day
his mother spends her time teaching
him how to use the weapon, so thjt
he may some day become an expert.
He is taught t ) stub so that it makes
no splash and is trained to hurl his
dagger at a mark again and aga n.
until he cannot miss his aim. And
all this is done during the time that
