WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT,. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1895.
Will Th c Mails Be Carried From The Cannon's Mouth? WHEN the Telegraph wa ridiculed. Hut since as the courage genius. We believe now that anything is possible to man, thanks to the busy brains that are constantly at work in the world of science. The latest genius claims that he can shoot our letters from station to station as he would a cannon ball. He would enclose the mail matter in shells which a good gunner coultl drop at the next depot, there to be taken up and passed along as desired. This is the age of unrest. The people are looking for something in every avenue of life that has a cyclone behind it. Tha Vaterbury Furniture Go on Easi Main Street Has a scheme on hand that will solve the problem of utilizing Pine Hill. Our proposition is to bring all the Furniture and Department Stores of Waterbury together, and have our. village on East Main street the main store, with Tine Hill for the central point of delivery. We could erect shoots to reach any part of the city and deposit the goods within a reasonable distance of any customer's house. This would utilize that valuable portion of the city. Pine Hill, which wilj will soon be the center of population (we have had three births in our own immediate family i the past week.) and stop the confusion and expense of so many different stores. It will be worth the reader's while to watch the wonderful changes that are going on at our village on East Main street! The carpenters are now at work in the'rear of our main buildings erecting storage rooms which w ill be separate and distinct from our regular business. On account of renting so much of our property, and the vas increase in our business, we have been compelled to tear on from the main building all the storage rooms we had, and arc fitting up new warerooms for tin Big Fall Trade which now on our heels. Our Mammoth Establishment Is Already The Attraction Of the city for sightseers, and we extend a cordial invitation to al'. and hope that thev will not feel that it is necessary to 1UY in order to SEE the SLM.ENDID FA EL STOCK which is con stunt iy arriving. We Are The Sole Agents of The Glen wood RANGE In this vicinity, and it is enough to say thai it has the largest sale in the stove world. We bin our CAKPETS from the largest from the manufac turer, and we have nothing to do with the jobbers. This is why we hand It more goods than all the other dealers in this city combined.

The Horse Will Not Go. Half a century ago, when the era of railway building began in America, it ws predicted that the day of the horse KM over. The day of the stagecoach certainly was over, and the age of slow travel, bnt there are ten times as many horses in the country today as there were 50 years ago. It will be just the same when the bi cycle and the electric railway and even the horseless wagon do their perfect work. The horses of America in past years have generally been inferior to those of Europe. We have bred tremen dous trotters and pacers, and Kentucky and Virginia gaitcd saddle horses unex celled in beauty, grace and intelligence the world over. We have even had a few thoroughbreds that compared favorably with those of Great Britain. We also developed the pacing horse as a track animal. But the fact remains that up to this time the common horse of America has been fearfully scrub. He was small ; he was muddy looking ; he had little strength aud hardly so much intelligence as his European cousins, bred for cen turies from tho best equine blood on the planet. It is this kind of scrub horse that must drop out here in America. Already thousands of specimens of tho tribe have boon reduced to horse beef in tho north west and shipped to Franco or sold on lis Chicago market. But tho fast trot ter, tho really fast one, brings more money than he ever did. So does the very handsome, large, high stepping car riage horse. Mankind loves a fine horse ind always will do so. A Boston dealer savs that the trade in horses has doubled tself in the past -three years in that city in spite of hard times. Another dealer says he has sold more ponies. Shot lands uul others, with carriages to match, in he past six months than he has done in en years. It is absolutely certain that the gait ;d, perfectly trained saddle horse, the uanusomo high stopping carriage horse, lie lightning trotter and pacer will not no at all. Neither will the heavy draft, t least not for many years to come. Farmers ought to remember meanwhile ;hat it takes live years to get a colt ready to put upon the market as a thor- ughly educated horse. Royal Blood. Do yon want to know what royal blood s and what kings are, those surviving superstitions of an aye when men be ieved the earth was Hat and tho sun aud noon moved around it? There was a line, not so long gone, when men be lieved that the touch of a king's hand .vould cure scrofula. Whatever kings r their hands may have been in the lays of a long forgotten past, the pres tit uf these ridiculous simulacra of ower is thus set forth by the Philadol- liia Press : Tho llapslmrg blood h:s run out, and If Vrchiluko r'ranz, tho Austrian emperor's phi'i nml lioir, proves to huvo uiinKoronsly ...-iik lunps, as now reported, there is no nuar -,-nsinali i'iuu! to tho burden of the thronr. i'i:.

The corn crop of isf5 promises to be i he largest ever grown even iu this greatest corn country of the earth. It is xpeeted that there will bo not less than :, IHIO, 000,0011 bushels. The crop is now lairly safe from weather contingencies. he value of all this to the country, ouiitiug in the fodder to feed livestock, -..ill be as much as three-quarters of a million dollars. The more of this wo an use at home as food for people and animals the better. Argentina has be- ocome a formidable rival to us in the -ale of Indian corn to Europe, and ex port prices will be low. Meat of all kinds in this country is at present very high to the consumer, however little the producer may receive for it. But certainly quicker and more skillful routes from producer to consumer can be found than those at present in vogue. I'lie farmer will get the most for his ,;reat Indian corn crop by feeding it to beeves, sheep, swine and poultry on his f arm. A certain mixture of gases devised by a Frenchman is said to be a perfect dis infectant. The mixture is named Piotet gas, from the chemist who gave it to the world. It is a combination of sul phurous and carbonic acid gases. Besides its very high germ destroying power it diffuses itself through the air with re markable swiftness and intensity. Its diffusive power is 12 times that of hydrogen. It penetrates every nook aud corner of a room or waste pipe into which it is put. Typhoid fever and rholera germs, as well as those of the dreaded cattle plague, anthrax, go down before it and are utterly destroyed. If all these claims are verilied, then med ical science and various industrial inter ests will lind in the Pictet gas on in valuable aid. Though beef has gone op in price, this will be a great year for venison if the rest of the deer producing region yields as largo a supply as Maine is ex pected to do. They are so nu merous and so tamo thero that they just coino into orchards und fields and eat up apples and wheat and blackberries till they bavo to be driven off by hand. WANT GENUINE CALAMITY. Th Country Is Too Prosperous to Salt the Republicans. Republicans con be candid on occa sion. They are preparing to make the tariff question the "overshadowing is sue" of the next presidential campaign, but they are not altogether satisfied with the outlook and would doubtless select another "issue" if thero were an other in sight, or if their political exig encies did not compel their submission to the dietation of their tariff barons, says the St. Louis Republic. What the Republicans want aud what they need badly in their politics is a genuine calamity. The country is too prosperous. The growing crops are too promising. There are too many advances in wages. Too many mills and factories, idle under McKinley law, are resuming operations under tho Democratic tariff. They do not regard the prospect with serenity or comfort, and occasionally their feelings overcome their prndeileo, aud they talk as they feel. Tho recent meeting of tho New York Republican state central committee was one of these occasions. The New York Tribune, a journal consecrated to the work of promoting u new tariff cam paign aud making tho tariff ail "over shadowing issue" in politics, inter viewed all, or nearly all, of tho mem bers of the committee as to the outlook and tho ways aud means of advancing Republican prospects. There was au undertone of sadness in nearly all the contributions made by the committee men to our sum of current political comment aud information. One of these will serve as a specimen of all. Mr. John Sabine Smith had been to the uorthw est and found there a boom which led him to doubt whether the Re publican party could carry the next elections as easily as it carried those of 1SD4. Mr. Smith put it enigmatically at first. "Our success is sure in next year's campaign, " he said, "if wo can only hold our present advantages." The Tribune reporter was indiscreet enough to ask him what, lie meant by such diplomatic phrasing, and then Mr. Smith threw diplomacy to tho winds ami said : "I was in In liana, Illinois and Min nesota, and the crop outlook there is al most marvelous. Not iu ten years has there been such a crop showing for the farmer, and a large proportion of the crop lias been already harvested. If nothing interferes to injure that which is yet outstandings it will bo a great year indeed, and the danger, if any should arise, to be guarded against will be that of an overflowing prosperity, wherein the issue born of tho last two years may be foignitou. " EXPORTS OF IRON. With Free Ore ami Coal Wo Could Con trol Markets aud 1'riecs. During the first half of the present year $31,000,000 worth of iron has been shipped from this country to Knlgaud. Yet there has been assiduously culti vated au idea that" this country needed protection of one form or another from English competition. The truth is, that this country, with fair opportunities, can be made the manufacturing center of tho world. With a tariff tax of 10 cents a ton on ore and tho same amount on coal we can now enter tho field against England in her own territory. Released from those unnatural burdens we could control all tho markets and prices. Yet iu the face of these conditions thero are those who pretend to want the McKinley law restored. That nioa.-nrp was responsible for the distress that has prevailed during the last two years. it cut off llio revenues and increased the taxes at tho same time, and closed every industrial establishment in the country that wasn't protected by some sort of a patent. Kansas City Times. Mill Haying at tho Moon. A calamity organ in Cincinnati, The Commercial, says: "Mr. Cli velaud thought nothing of giving a bounty of $lt,000.000 toiEuglish money lenders or of practically destroying American industries for the benefit of English manufacturers." It Would not lie easy for a partisan expert in misn presenta tion to condense more falsehood in a few words, but the above specimen is con siderably belated. It is an anachronism an echo of the dying calamity how Is of last year. But some of the organs are keeping up the howls from mere force of habit, as some dogs bay the moon when it is not visible i the sky. Philadelphia Record. Tariff iukered" to Good Pnrpose. According to the Cotton and Yool Reporter there were in operation on June 1 last in tho woolen mills of the United States 8,4ii0 sols of curds for woolens and worsteds, 77,100 looms working iu woolens and worsteds and 64,250 knitting machines. In May. 1692, there were 7,S4 sets of cards, 71,000 woolen and worsted looms and 43,(01 knitting machines. These fig ures are referred to Mr. MeKmley as evidence of the demoralizing effect ot tinkering his tariff. New York World. Advico For John Sherman.

NEW YORK TRIBUNE SURPRISES ITS READERS. Chronicled Facts of Increasing Ilnslness Instead of Wide-spread Kuln lieaded It tlood News' If Wages Are Rising, 1'ro tectlon Is Wronc, Great searehiugs of heart prevailed among the rural readers ef the New York Tribune when their eyes fell upon a paragraph entitled "tiood News from New Brunswick. N. J." Having in mind Senator Lcxow's declaration that the cause uf protection is lost unless evi dences of widespread ruin are at onco produced and his demand that Repub lican journals should immediately send their reporters out through tho manu- faetnring communities in order to bring back accounts of the ravages of tho pres ent tariff. t!:oy will naturally expect under the heading "Hood News" soma consolatory talcs of smokeless chimneys, silent forges, n duet ions of wages, strikes and other manifestations of distress and despair. Instead of this they will be perplexed to learn that a large iron concern, iu New Brunswick has increased tho wa ges of its workmen 10 percent; that a rubber company has given orders to refit a mill that was el. miI several years ago, and which will give employment to about 1.000 men; that two wall paper factories, instead of shutting down for two months, as has btvn their custom, have kept running through .Inly and will suspend only through August, and that a great hosiery company is miming full time and with every department full handed. Worse than all. this ho siery company reports that it has never been so bu-y in its history, while tha prospects for a continuance of trade are excellent. For one morning's news from one coimn'.or.'y tins is a terrible accu mulation of ui.ph a-ant facts. The editorial position of Tho Tribune as regards r'-'"s erity is that it prevails only in articular industries. The evil disposed Democrats were balked in their attempt.- t create universal ruin and only suecoi did in damaging ihmus in spots. Whore tho tariff rcm-.::-e,: pro-' tivtivo industries found that l; v v., re able to stru: ng. but v, pro ruin l cot ion was reduced nothhti.' lm; followed. This is a very safe position to take so long as it is possible to stick closely to general ' I ios and avoid all partieulariza t i' u of industries. Hut tho imprudent Mr. Lexow has nt.iuo th:s course im practicable. He says that if wages are really rising the Republicans ate all wrong and havo been wrong all tho time, and tha! the production of tangi ble and spooiiic cast s of starvat ion and misery is indispensable.
