The Chicago Kiv-'rd commentinj;
on the senate's attitude, rciufeks
that it is time to send active, ener
getic voting men to congress. The
Ai;;rs realized this some time ago.
when it tir.-t advocated lien T. Ca
ble's candidacy, and it is in further
support of that conviction that it
considers him the man of all men to
succeed to Shelby M. t'ullom's seat in
the upper house.

the Odd Follows" Herald at Monti--ello.
Ills. Several year ago Mr.
Scutl conducted the Kllingham Dem
ocrat. From there he went to Bloom
iitSfton and bought the Bulletin,
'Bishop' Oborly's jiaper. which he
managed successfully for some time.
In 1 '.; he was nominated for con
gress by the democrats, and succeed
ed in wresting the Illootinngton dis
trict from its republican moorings.
Mr. Scott expects to move his new
purchase to liloonun'gton shortly, and
he can be relied upon to furnish the
order of Odd Fellows a representa
tive and valuable paper.
The attitudeof Senator Hill in com
ing to the rescue and assuming the
leadership of the administration
forces in the senate, is a source of
much gratification to the Ai:i;i"s. for
it has always had a great liking for
the New York senator, and has never
faltered in the belief that he would
eventually demonstrate beyond dis
pute that lie had the be-t interestsof
the democracy, not til v of his own
state, hut of the country, deeply at
heart. Subsequent events have ful
ly ju-tilied this view of the man.
It cannot be doubted but his gen
eralship gave the empire state its
deserved representation as a solidly
democratic state, in congress, includ
ing not only two senators, but an in
crease in tlfe house of representa
tives, and now that the party is in
need of a leader of courage and con
viction on the tloor of the senate, he
lias come bravely forward and taken
up the sword in behalf of not only
the party's, but the peoples' highest
Morion Crawford opens up a new
line of thought in 'lis article entitled

which attended that for September.
The extraordinary spectacle was pre
sented of a 12i-cent magazine selling
for 50 and 75 cents, and many hun
dreds were even sold at !f 1 each.
Probably the record remains without
a parallel, in periodical sales, of a
number proving- si interesting that,
after 11 .000 copies had been
sold. the news company had
orders for 50, (MM) more than they
could supply, whi e dealers in vari
ous parts of the co intry. discovering
the esteem in vvl ich the magazine
was held, immediitcly raised their
prices to double, treble, quadruple
and in many caes to eight times the
regular price. The publishers do
not yet know what their real circula

uf their presses; mt machinery is
being put in place which will supply

Jacob Myers, who was last heard of
on the Pacific coast. delights in scaling
dizzy heights and ptrforming all kinds
of foolhardy tricks. His wonderful
feat ou the electric iight tower at Tip
ton, Iowa, is til remembered by
most of the people f Cedar county, if
not of the entire state. The tower is
a pointed affair, 120 feet high, with an
iron rod an inch in diameter extend
ing seven feet abeve the platform.
Myers mounted this tower and tood

Protection In Ohio.
Protection is for the benefit of
all," says the Cleveland Leader. "It
increaess the number of occupations,
augments the volume of money ex
pended in them, and makes it possi
ble for all classes to obtain work at
better wages than are paid anywhere
dse in the world."
Isn't it wonderful, responds I he St.
Louis Republic, how a once grand
old party can cling to its ruinous
traditions in the face of facts and
events which have crushed it? Isn't
it wonderful that in the great state
of Ohio, where many industries are
today trying to sustain themselves
bv half-pa v and half-force principles
rendered imperative by the republi
can policy of protection, a newspa
per like the Cleveland Leader should
have the nerve to drag forth again
the wretched republican banners of
1KS2 and expect an honest, intelli
gent people to read and believe them?
There is a campaign going on over
in Ohio, with the apostle of protec
tion as a candidate for re-election as
'governor of the state, and at this dis
tance it seems idle to suppose that
the possibility of his success may be
based upon the very policy which
the American people buried moun
tain deep less than one year ago.
The McKinlev idea of protection
is dead in this country. It may yet
give a lingering squirm of existence
in Ohio, just to carry out the tradi
tion that the western reserve never
yields its passions or its prejudices,
but it is dead, just the same, and the
houre committee on ways and means
is now engaged in discussing its re
mains. The thousands upon thous
ands of hungry, unemployed work
ingnien have learned, to their sor
row that -protection is not for the
benefit of all, and that the foreigner
is not the man who pays the tax
They have learned that the millions
of money which have gone to enrich
the few have been paid by them and
that a race of Carnegies has sprung
lip in their midst as the direct result
The Blind SolUie - unci His Ilible.

JOHN ALLEN'S STORY.
It Relates to Jotiali Oulncy and
Apropos of his (Josiah Quincy's)
keen scent for places Congressman
AUen tells this story: "A young man
desired a position in the postofliee de
partment and applied to his congress
man. He was told he could get no
place until a vacancy should arise.
He waited for several weeks and one
day, when his money was nearly ex
hausted, he went down to the Poto
mac beach. He found there many
bathers and among them a young man
whom lie recognized as a clerk in the
division where he had sought a place.
The clerk ventured beyond his depth
and was drowned. When his body
was brought to the shore the appli
cant lost not a moment's time in hast
ening to the congressman.
" 'Now,' he said, 'I can have a place.
There is a vacancy.'
" Where?" asked the; congressman.
" "Why, a clerk in the division (nam
ing him i w as drowned this afternoon.'
"The congressman looked at him sad
ly. I regret to inform you,' he said,
that you are too late; the place has
" 'How can that be?' shouted the ap
plicant, in despair. "The man has just
been drow ned."
''Yes. I know." replied the congress
man, "but the pla-'e has been tilled.
It was obtained by v Massachusetts
friend of Mr. Qniney. who saw the
clerk go in and guessed cotvectly that
he could not swim.'"
LOTS OF FISHING.

thinks of lishing and hunting, even if
he does not indulge in those pursuits.

box." said he with a laugh that made
his large and elegant diamond rattle
in its sash until the putty almost
'Don't get gay," iid I, hurling a
look of intense scorn at him. "Is there
any fishing about here?''
"Plenty down in the lSiul Pasture,"
"What do you catch there?" said I,
"bull cats and buffaloes or cattle and
clover blossoms? " Then I laughed a
"No.". said be. "trout and bass.''

of trout and bass living in a bull pas

and he called it

"Ye g ds." I cried, "what's in a

What Cause Ited Hair.
Red hair is caused by a superabun
dance of iron in the blood. This it is
that imparts the vi or, the elasticity,
the great vitality, the overflowing,
thoroughly healthy animal life which
runs riot through the veins of the
rudd v-haired, and this strong, senti
ent animal life is what renders them
more intense in all their emotions than
their more languid fellow-creatures.
The excess of iron is also the cause of
freckles on the peculiarly clear, white
skin which alway-i accompanies red

A novelty has been introduced by a

are given, from photographs, the like
nesses of the members, so that the
servaut can properly place the china
