TBE LEWISTON TELLER.
CARL A. FOHESMAN, HUItor anil Prof. LEWISTON, : : IDAHO. N ATI'hk presumably knew what flho was about when sho gavo hirsute equip ment to man, but man, who is a shav ing animal, doesn't seem to think so. He doesn't shave his eyebrows or re move his finger-nails, but ho will not have a whisker, at least net such a whisker as the manifest purpose is he should have. In the isolation of most American .farms there is better chance to ac custom those who are ignorant of American ways of doing things with our ideas and practices. So long as foreigners took to the farms when they first landed, their coming was an un doubted benefit to tho country. When they went into mines or cities they necessarily remained clannish. It would bo a delightful state of things if tho subjects of foreign powers could come hero without our invitation or desire, domicile them selves in our territory, and then claim interference on tho part of home gov ernments if the laws within whoso grasp they placed themselves by crim inal conduct were not administered according to the notions of their conn, •■rymen. Ovf.h 29 per cent of tho population 'f tho United States is now in cities of jvor 8,000 inhabitants, and there are enofigh towns and villages of less popu lation than 8,000 to bring tho total of town-dwellers somewhero between a third and a half of the entiro popula tion. Tho census shows now, as in 1880, that the town growth is depleting the country in tho vicinity of every growing town. It looks as if it would be necessary to station Federal officers at evory point where a railroad crossos tho in ternational frontier, if wo wish to enforce our statute«. East of tho great lakes, there arj not more than half a dozen such points at which any influx of immigrants is probable. Those entrances should bo guarded against the irruption of persons unfit for American citizenship. All knowledge is the result of the union of two fat;tore—one objective, and one subjective. To know any thing is to prefer it to something known before. Unless there bo an in ner group of ideas to which tho objoct may in some way bo referred, knowl edge of it is impossible; and tho char acter of tho resulting knowledge de pends upon tho character of the inner group of ideas. It ia high time, more than high time, that something was dono by the lawmakers of the country in relation to tho penalty for that top crime in the calender—murder in tho first de gree. Whether it bo through a pre vailing though openly unexpressed sentiment of aversion to capital pun ishment, or whether it bo for some other reason, the fact remains that murders are to-day a favored class of criminals. It is found by examination, which has oxtended over soveral months, that all American cattle sent to England are perfectly healthy, and aro really tho best stock that English farmers can procure. What the English farm ers want is to import young stock, or that not fully fattened, and they find it a profitable business to fatten it for their home market This alone will help to increase tho scarcity of cattle in this country. England is lato in getting rid of her restrictions. There have been labor questions over since Jacob hired to Laban, and doubtless long before that event and there was a quarrel between Jacob and Laban as to tho recompense of labor, and thero have been quarrels botween employer and employed concerning tho recompense of labor ever since then, and their quarrels wifi continue until tho church Christianizes the world. Then, not till then, labor quarrels will cease; simultaneously, however, with quarrels of all kinds. When "thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself is tho universal rule of action than there will be no need of labor organizations. It can no longer be disputed Unit to the • 'grip" rightfully belongs tho dig nity of a pestilence. But while most pestilences have a kqown origin and a regular line of march, it is evidently impossible to predict tho ••grip's" movement over tho surface of the earth, or to take precautions against its coming. The great birthplace of the cholera is the (langes valley, and when it overleaps the limits of that region it advances westward with slow and steady step. Yellow fever has its own zone, to which nature's law con fines it. But the "grip" flies every where, anywhere—torturing its aston ished victims and baffling medical sci ence. about oleo. Some Tacts About the Making of Imi tation Hotter. Oleomargarine retails at ten cents a pound, average quality, says the Kan nst« City Star. Some manufacturers made different grades and establish a scale of prices accordingly. Thero are principally two grades. The one at the price mentioned and a grade which sells at eight cents. Oleomar garine is mainly made of oloo oil ex clusively, but sometimes 5 per cent of the finest butter is added, which is churned with the cream and milk to improve the flavor." In making oleo-oil, the «elected fat is taken from the cattle in tho process of slaughtering, and after thorough washing is placed in a bath of clean cold water and surrounded with ice, where it is allowed to remain until all animal heat has been removed. It is then cut into small pioees by mnehinerv and melted at an average temperature of 150 degrees until tho fat in liquid form has separated from the fibrine or tissue, and then settlod until it is perfectly clear. Then it is drawn into graining-vats and allowed to stand a day, when it is ready for tho process. Tho pressing extracts tho Stearine, leaving tho remaining prod uct, known ns oleo-oil. It is this ar ticle which, when churned with cream or milk, or both, and with sometimes a small proportion of creamery butter, the whole being properly salted, gives the new food product oleomargarine. Each animal yields an average of about forty pounds oleo-oil. Butterine sells at from twenty to twenty-five cents a pound and there is a grade that sells at thirty cents a pound. A manufacturer of oleomar garine when asked its difference from butterine said: "The difference between oleomarga rine and butterine is this: In making butterine we use neutral lard, which is made from selected leaf lard prepared and rendered in a very similar manner to oleo oil, excepting that no Stearine is extracted. This neutral lard, which is a beautifully white and odorless pro duct, is cured in salt brino for forty eight to seventy hours at an ice water temperature. It is then taken, and with the desired proportions of oleo oil and the finest creamery butter, is ■churned with cream and milk, pro ducing an article which, when properly salted and packed, is ready for market. Wo use tho samo coloring that is used by all butter makers. Tho butterine is generally made of two qualities, differing only in the proportions of tho ingredients used. In cold weather a little salad oil, made from selected cotton seed, is used in both products for the improvement of their texture. We got an average of about eight pounds of raw leaf lard per hog. which render net about five to six pounds of neutral. This neutral is worth from two to three cents per pound over ordinary steam rendered lard." Creamery butterine is usually com posed of 25 per cent of creamery butter, 40 per cont neutral, 20 per cent oleo-oil and the remainder cream and salt. Dairy butterine differs from creamery only in tho proportions. It is a cheaper product, and its propor tion of buttor about 10 per cent, neutral 45 per cent and oleo-oil 25 per cent, tho remainder being cream, milk and salt. Expert Testimony. The line between expert and non expert testimony is a fine one, says the New York Tribune. Tho other day a physician was on the witness stand in a Trenton court, when the question, "How many ribs aro thoro in the hu man body?" was put to him. Ho re fused to answer on tho singular ground that the question was a technical one, and that he was not under any obliga tion to answer it because he had not received a fee for expert testimony. The judge, properly wc think, com mitted him for contempt of court. It is to be presumed that every doctor knows the correct answer to the quoi tion. This witness, however, may have suffered a relapse of memory. In that ease there would be no impropri ety in the judge's excusing him on tho ground that to have confessed his igno rance would have involved a loss of professional standing and a consequent loss of fees. Bearded Women. Bearded women have existed at all periods of the world's history. Herod otus has given us an account of Pedasnes "above Halicarnassus," among whom the chin of the Priestess of Minerva regularly budded with a largo beard whenever any great public calamity impended [Her., L, 75.] A woman of Copenhagen. Bartel Garet ji, had a beard reaching to her waist Charles XII. of Sweden had a female grenadier in his army who possessed the beard as well as tho courage of a man. Margaret, duchess of Austria and governor of the Netherlands, had a large, wiry, stiff heard on which she greatly prided herself. Of late years. Albert, duke of Bavaria, reported having a young lady governess in his household who was tho proud possessor of a very large black board. Gua fur Fuel In Belgium. The authorities of Brussels, in Bel gium. have lowered the price of gas so that it is now cheap enough to make its use for fuel economical. Tho con sumption for this purpose is already large. The city rents \he stoves to consumers at a rent about equal to 10 per cent, ol their value per annum. to a Relative Position*. Women are wonderful creatures. Listen to one of them talking to her baby at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and then listen to her talking to that same baby's father at 3 o'clock in the morn ing, a world-weary, care-burdened man, and you'd rather be the baby every time.

HER TELEGRAM, She shall net have him!" said Jane Bell, stamping her foot upon the floor; "she shall not have have him! I know tho arts of those bits of simplicity. It's j been a dead set ever since she came, and I say she shan't have him!" It was Clarence Barton of whom Jane Bell spoke as "him," and Ruth Harlar.d whom she meant as "she." It ; was on the eve of a projected picnic party. Just live minutes ago Bath had exhibited her new dress to her rival, quite ignorant of tho fact that Jane was a rival at all. "I'm so glad Mrs. Spencer sent it homo to-night, said Ruth, "for I couldn't have gone to-morrow if it had not come." And Jane Bell who had been hoping j all day that the dress-maker would fail to fulfill her promise, had replied, sweetly: "I'm so glad, dear!" But now that she was alone and thought of Clarence Barton, who was ueh a "catch," and whose' heart she intended to win, and its site recalled ' how Ruth hud come between them, and fully understood what, an oppor- : tunlty to-morrow's picnic would be for her, she grew furious. She shall not go, if I can prevent her," site said to herself. ••! must have my opportunity at the picnic. , Clarence Rarton liked mo before Ruth amc, and sho shall not flourish him before everyone's eyes as her prize al- I ready. I hate her, and I only wish I dared to insult her and send her home; but mamma would never suffer any thing to be done to hurt the feelings of dear cousin Jane's child,' I suppose, so I must manage some other way. She glanced at the. dress lying on the (•hair, and wondered whether she dared in any way disfigure it? but her conscience was not equal to the deed. Horribly becoming as the dress was, it must, remain uninjured. I'd like to tear it into shreds," said Jane: "but I must achieve my purpose in some other way. If I could only send her home!" Then a thought flashed into her mind. "I can send her home," she said: "and when once there she will he obliged to stay. I know she can't afford the expense of a journey hack to us this summer; and if she can he banished I shall he Mrs. I ! 1 i j j I I 1 * I a a to 10 Barton yet." And the girl laughed spitefully a« she glanced out of the window. It was nine o'clock. The streets were quiet and dark. Jane had seldom been out alone so late; but she intended to go now. She took her waterproof cloak from its peg, and sought, in her ward robe, for her plainest hat; over this she tied a blue veil, and locking her room door, and slipping the key into her pocket, she crept slowly down the stairs, into the basement. • Sit up for me, Ann," she whispered ; to the servant girl, "and I'll give you ; a present to-morrow; hut you need not tell mamma I'm out." Away Jane hurried into the main road, where sho took a t rumeur, which was t raveling city-wards: and on reach ing the terminus she alighted, and in much trepidation and consciousness that sho was awakening a good deal of unpleasant observation, she sought the district telegraph-office. "After all." Jane said to herself, "no one can see my face: and what is a lit tlo confusion to the loss of a rich hus band?" Tho thought encouraged her as she advanced to the counter, and handed in her slip of paper. "How much, please?" to the clerk, who smiled in an unpleasant manner, as he answered ho". Then it was over. Site hu. riod away, caught the return train, and reached home unmolested. But she was pale and trembling as she slip ped into the kitchen, where she was welcomed by sleepy Ann. •The missus don't know you're out; hut site tried to wake you awhile ago. There's a telegram for your cousin, and she's fretting over it." ••Let her fret, it will do her good," said Jane, viciously to herself, as she stole off to tied. Sho slept quietly, and dreamed decani- of triumph, while in the next room little Ruth packed her trunk, and kept tearful vigil. ••Some ono must be ill or dead," she sobbed, "or they would never have telegraphed to roe to return home. How can I bear this long journey, in such suspense, and what shall 1 find when I reach the end of it?" When Jane went down to breakfast the next morning, she found Ruth ready for her journey; and was tola how a telegram had come the night before, signed "T. Smith," summon ing her home. ••And Ruth knows no one of that name." said Jane s mother; -so I tell S 1 _______ her to hope for the best; it may be nothing very serious." "Dejiend upon it, it is not," said Jane, with some pity in her heart, Ruth was so pale. "They are only anx ious to have you with them. Don't fret." But Buth was not to be cheered, and she left many sighs. And you will lose the picnic, too; vhat a pity!" said Jane hypocritically. "Yes," answered Ruth with a sob. And when Jane saw in Ruth's eyes ihrt wu so sorry to lose the pie the j ; I j ' : , I I of nie, and also guessed wliv she was I sorry, she no longer pitied her. Jnne went to the picnic herself, and ! she looked her best; hut some chance 1 occurrence kept Clarence Barton a\AUj and, so far as she was concerned day was a failure. Neither did she i see him again that week, and someone j told her he had left home on business, j Still, that was better than what might I have lx'en, and Jane waited hopefully. At the end of tho week, came a I letter from Ruth. ••Dear Jane (it ran), 1 "You'll he so glad to know that nothing was the matter at home. They * did not telegraph for mo at all. It was I some mistake. I suppose. 1 should have come back for the picnic, only I had used all my pocket money, and couldn't. And now I have such a very strange thing to tell you—so strange, I hardly have words for it. When your father put me into the train, and went away, 1 felt so lonely and so sad. that I think I was crying a little, when someone touched me on the arm, and said: Miss Ruth.' It was Mr. Barton. 'I met Mr. Bell just now, and he told mo of your journey, and the cause of it. I'm sorry,' he said. • •Then lie sat beside me, and said kind tilings, as all the rest did; but I could not persuade myself that noth ing had happened, and I know he saiv how alarmed I was and then, suddenly, he learned towards me, and said— Uh, Jane! I can't toll you what, exactly; but something about my grief being his, and asking me to let him help me to bear it—and it was so sudden and so strange. But I knew by the way his words strengthened me, that I liked him better than I was aware of. "And. Jane, dear, wo understand each oilier; and ho went with me to the end of my journey, and there, as I told you, I found all was well. Oh, Oh, Jane, lam so happy, and mother likes him so much, and we shall be married very soon. It seems like a dream, even while I write it. You knew I never thought he would fall in love with a plain little country girl liko myself. • •Tell all to your mother. She will he so pleased. And write soon to your affectionate cousin, "Ruth." Jane tore the letter into bits, and danced on them. But that did no good. Clarence Barton was lost, and her telegram had only helped to lose him! It ; ; Fnmiy Nnino*. "Talk about funny nomenclature," said a Cincinnati man to a Times re porter, "I've a list of names that I copied from -signs in London as I rode down Oxford street, the Old City road and Islington that I don't believe can be duplicated anywhere in the world. For example, I saw over ono door, A. Homely Bossy, veterinary surgeon. Over ono door I saw the name of a tailor firm, Thunder & Co. Directly opposite was another firm engaged in the same business with the other handle to tho by-word. It was J. B. Blazes. Two bakers carry on a busi ness under the name of Cakebread & Flowerdew. A prominent stationer bears the name of Longman Strongith arm, and I never knew whether he had a good deal ot muscle or not.

The hair, like every other portion of the human frame, if uncared for will go to waste and eventually drop out. This is due to a splitting of the ends of the hair, so that the interim oil duct which nourishes the hair, is exposed, and the natural nourishment of the hair runs to waste, overflows upon the head, forming dandruff, which impedes the growth of the hair just as much as tho tares among wheat. The best means to prevent this is a strengthening of the hair, and this can easily be accomplished by frequent cut ting and the use of salt and water and vaseline. Have you ever noticed what bushy hair sea-faring men have? Did you ever see a bald sailor? It is be cause their head is in constant contact with the invigorating salt air, and is often wet with salt water. A good ton ic of salt water should contain a tea spoonful of salt to a tumbler of water, and should be applied to the hair t wo or three times a week. The effect at the end of a month will be surprising. Bad Temper. Many people consider that "had temper" is entirely voluntary on tho part of the person who displays it. As a matter of fact, it is often to a very great extent involuntary, and no one is more angry at it than the bad tempered person himself. Of course, i every one. whether he was born with a had temper or has acquired one from 1 habit, or lias been visited with ono as a result of disease or injury, should at least try to control it. But his friends should also bear in mind that had temper may he. and often is, an afflic Hon to be sympathized with, not an offense to be punished. ----- — --• Suck Barr Bird*, "I see," said the jester, looking up from his newspaper, "that the red crows are almost extinct" "Red crows!" exclaimed the orni thologist. • •! never heard of such things before, and I flatter myself that , 1 know something about birds.

The cadet, himself, however—that is, the man who has been through it-be lieves in the practice, lie assures you gravely that -no man otti be a good eer who lias not been hazed at West it levels all Point." He thinks that the men of a class to one plane (a thine giriitlv desired at the academy the cadets 'will not tolerate a snob), that it teaches one self-restraint, hu mility and obedience, and that the man who has been hazed will he kinder to men under his command than the man who has not. The authorities have always attempted to abolish it; but al though at times they have succeeded in slightly changing its form, it un doubtedly exists to-day just as it did forty years ago. The method of tho hazer is very simple. He simnly orders the "plebe" to do a particular thing. The particular thing may be to get the hazer a bucket of water, "to polish his saber, clean his gun. air his blankets, read to him. fan him, or stand on his head for him. These, of course, aro but samples. Indeed, the upper class men spend half of thoir time during the summer encampment inventing new things for the "plebes" to do. It would seem that it would be very simple to escape from hazing, therefore, by merely de clining to obey such an order; but the idea would he a mistaken one. Should the overbold "plebe" demur to the re quest. he is quietly informed that ho must either obey or fight, and that it is quite immaterial which ho chooses to do. This ungentle but gentlemanly method of dealing with tlie "plebe" is based, the cadet upper class man will tell you, on sound principles. The first thing the soldier should learn is to fight. If ho does not care to fight he must learn an ear lier principle—i. e., obedience. Of course, the "plebe" often prefers to fight. In this case he is treated with punctilious courtesy and is assured of fair play. A man is picked from the hazing class who is smaller than he. usually by several pounds, in weight, and tho affair is conducted with the decorum of a duel. After the •-plebe" has returned from the hospital and his eyes, nose and other members are resuming a normal appearance, he is promptly ordered by another member of the hazing class to do tho precise thing he had previously declined to do. Very to decline a sc th that while the upper-class man alway gives tho advantage in weight, lie is always shrewd enough to take the ad vantage in skill, which, added to the perfect training of the man who has been a year or more under the dis cipline of the academy, is so great that the hazing class wins nineteen fights out of twenty. When a "plebo" does manage to come out victor ho be comes a hero of no mean consequence, and his achievement lives in cadet tradition for years; but he is promptly challenged again, nevertheless, and the lighting is continued until the hap less "plebe" is lugged off to the hos pital steward with his ever-ready raw few have the nil time—none third. I might say, parenthetically, beef, arnica and bandages. Again, it might seem easy to escape a tight at West Point by simply de clining to indulge in that gentle" pas time, hut this, according to the ethics of the cadets, is dishonorable, and the man who declines to tight, be he in any class whatsoever, from the day of his admission to nis graduation, is promptly cut by the entire corps; anil it would be about as difficult for a man I to go through four years of West Point | without being spoken to ;l « it would j for a sinner to go through Hades with- ! out perspiring. This sort of thing lasts during the summer months only, but the plebe is on strict probation for a full year. During this time he is never permitted to speak to an upper-class man without first humbly asking permission, and then only on business. In speaking to or of an upper-class man he must always prefix the title "Mister," and when speaking to one must always add the respectful term, "sir," to every sentence he utters. At the table he pours the milk, water, coffee and tea. and waits patiently until the upper class men have been helped before he satisfies his exceptionally healthv ap petite. * If he is not respectful, modest and dignified when he goes to the academy, he must either learn to be very soon or leave. The cadets can drive an ob noxious man out of the corps quicker than the authorities can court martial and dismiss him, and they have proved the ability on more occasions than one. _ , ~ ~ " 1 " r ® ,d * ,ne L nder the old blue laws of Connec ticut "any man who shall stand by and •es two dogs fight and not try to separ «te them shall be deemed guU breach of the peace and shall jail the length of seven d:i; ' .".n,] nights."

Thousands of curious and ingonim theories have been brought forth to ac count forthe fact that the sun il though he has whirled his burning disc across the heavens for untold ages, continues to burn without being consumed or his hulk being lessened in the least.. Some learned men affect to believe that the great orb is a monstrous ball of gas, hut oven a great hall of gas would be consumed to its utmost atom in the course of a few thousand years. < liners pretend to believe that its tiros are kept up by the' remains of wrecked worlds which are constantly falling into its depths, but even this seemB far from probable, not to say a purely absurd conclusion. In giving his opin ion on the last opinion, one of tin; most eminent astronomers of the day has figured that a mountain range consist ing 176 cubic miles falling into the sun would only be sufficient to maintain the present heat for a single second; a mass equal to that of our earth would engender only enough of heat to last 93 years.
