AN INTERBNTING CONTEST, There is no contest in this State over the United States senatorship, but our neighbors the people of Massaohusetts ars somewhat ex cited by the effort made by the friends of Congressman Long to put him in Senator Dawes' place. This effort has the hearty support of the Boston Advertiser. An at tempt was made to have a caucus called, but such a strong protest ensued that the scheme was given up and the voting will begin in the legislature to-day without any caucus sing. The supporters of Long have been active and vociferous. They have asserted that Senator Dawes is old, has lost much of his usefulness, and that his place should be given to a younger man and a man like Mr. Long, who has shown great ability and tact in the service of the public. It has even been announced that the young men of the Republican party are crying for the election of Long and that if he is not chosen they will leave the party. Senator Dawes has been in the Senate no less than thirty years, but it is evident that he has no notion of retiring yet. He has more supporters among the Republi can newspapers than Mr. Long, and a strong force of friends outside the newspaper offices. It is claimed for him that in sagacity, knowl edge, experience and familiarity with the public business he is without arival. To the objections that he is too old and that ha is not so great a political leader as a senator ought to ba, or as Mr. Long would be, the Worcester Spy rather effectively replies: It is true that Mr. Dawes is old enough, and has been long enough in congress to have acquir ed an invaluable store of knowledge and ex perience, but he is not old enough to be less fit for the public service by the loss of either physical or mental vigor. He dispesed of the objection that he is not a political leader by his speech at the Massachusetts club some weeks ago. It happened that Mr. Long also made a speech at the same hour, under the same roof and on the same subject. Mr. Dawes in that speech marked out a line of policy which the Republicans in congress, Mr. Long among them, have sines adopted and which is likely to be the Republican pol icy in the next congress. Mr. Long also in his speech outlined a policy for the Republi cans, but nobody paid any attention to it and he abandoned it himself as soon as he re turned to Washington. The lesB said about the comparative qualifications of the two men for leadership the better for Mr. Long's friends. Senator Dawes' friends are very confident, and they have certainly got the better of the Long supporters in the preliminary discus sion. How they will come out in the voting will soon appear. EblTOKUL NOTBi. Some business is done in the New York postofHc. Last year more than 60,000,000 letters were distributed through boxes, and more than 120,000,000 were delivered by car riers. In addition to the3e nearly 50,000,000 postal cards were boxed and delivered. Some idea of the wonderful progress now being made in microscopical science may be formed by the fact, as stated by the presi dent of the British association lately, that results are now attained in this line which mathematicians five years ago declared to be impossible. There may be mists in some newspaper of fices occasionally, but there is no mist in the office of the News when "ourselves and the Governor" shed light. We are waiting to see how "ourselves" of the No ws office and Bismarck come out in dealing with the af fairs of Europe. We know it will not be the fault of "ourselves" if they are left in a misty condition, but Bismarck is getting old. High license has worked well in Missouri. Governor Marmaduke's message says that in four years the high license law has reduced the number of saloons in the State from 8, 600 to 3,880, and has raised the revenue from the traffic from $547,000 to $1,842,000. - The present license runs from $550 to $1,200, and in towns or cities the municipal authorities can add as much as they see fit, so that in some towns the license paid is $1,500. The governor urges prohibiting the sale of spirits at drug stores and all places except licensed hotels and saloons. There is a curious law in New York regu lating the liability of railroad corporations in case of the death of a passenger or employe through negligence. Not only is $5,000 the limit of this liability, but where money has already been paid for injuries, and these in juries result afterward in death, nothing more can be obtained. A bill introduced in the legislature increases the limit of liability in case of death to $10,000, and provides that where compensation has been made for in juries that fact may be pleaded in mitigation of damages, but cannot be pleaded as a bar to farther claim in case of death. Henry George does not use mild words in his fight with the Catholic churoh. Here is specimen: It may be news to the general public, but it is, nevertheless, a fast, that Archbishop Corrigan, in the last election, not only wanted to defeat a certain candi date, bnt also wanted to defeat the call far a constitutional convention; the letters from him were sent to priests telling them to work against the convention, and that at a gather ing where one of these priests endeavored to earry out this instruction a proposition was made to gat hold of the bags containing the ballots in favor of the constitutional conven tion, and by making away with them to les sen the vote in its favor. Some of the people of New York who are taking part in ths discussion of the question, How shall the death penalty be inflicted! cannot be accused of sentimentnlism. L. S. Riddle says:"When a murderer's life is taken away surround it with all the horrors possi ble. Take him away to some dark place where none can see or know what is done. Hang him again, and again, and again, and bury him where none may learn of his rest ing place. The good old common law method of hanging is just right except for the pub licity now allowed." Lawyer W. H. Russell wants condemned oriminals turned over to a committee of medical experts. Their lives would then be taken in such a way as to pro mote scientific knowledge. - "Vivisection of human subjects that is, cutting them up alive would no donbt have a deterring in fluence on those who contemplated commit ting crimes for which vivisection, followed by death, was the lawful penalty." It seems that the Czar of Russia has been induced to pay some attention to the condi tion of Siberia by Count Ignatieff and Baron Korff, the governors-general respectively of eastern Siberia and the Amour. They repre sent that it is only the incessant flooding of that country with exiled criminals that keeps Siberia in the state of a wilderness. The native population is corrupted and in many ways injured by this influx, and the numer ous outbreaks and attempts to escape made by the exiles keep the country in a constant ferment. Protests against this penal colo nization have hitherto been unavailing, and year by year the number of convicts sent thither has increased. In the century pre ceding 1864 about one million persons were exiled to Siberia. From 1864 to the present time fully seven hundred thousand more have been sent, and the rate at present is about fifty thousand a year. The hope that these exiles would in time become settlad colonists has not been realized. Ninety-nine per cent, of them seem to have but one desire, to es cape from Siberia; and fully one-fourth of the entire number are always in flight. This enormous number of roaming fugitives, most of them, of course, utterly lawless, keeps the country in a state of terror and confusion that paralyzes all social and industrial prog ress.

A philanthropic woman of means recently gathered together a class of girls, and set out to teach them how to cook, how to sew, how to do all the work of an ordinary house hold, in order that, if they married and had homes of their own, they might be able to manage them efficiently and economically. Finding that they did not appear to compre hend her metive or object she said to them: "Girls, what do you suppose is my reason for trying to teach you?" Without a mo ment's hesitation one of them replied: "To make ladies of us." "And what is your idea of a lady?" asked the teacher.

Christiana Correspondence of the Globe-Beaic- crat The success and delicacy of half the Nor wegian dishes is due to the generons use of butter and cream, and the vigorous and con scientious way in which they beat and stir anything that requires such treatment: My cariosity about certain national dishes was gratified one morning in a certain Christiana kitchen that was bright with sunlight and shining brass and copper pans. The young lady being company iu the house and my hostess put on an apron and took part in the demonstration lesson given me. This host ess too was one of the most charming wo men I have ever met, simple, unaffected, democratic and Norwegian through and through. She sp ike the four great languages of Europe French, English, German and Italian and had traveled in those countries, and her culture iu art and literature was as thorough as her knowledge of cookery. The first thing done was to make a "Fiske pudding," which is the standard and rather a winter dish of Norway. The cook pro duced a fine, large haddock that had been properly cleaned and dressed and cat length wise into three long strips. With the point of a broad knife she began with the tail end of each strip and scraped it off in a fine pulp until all the flesh had been removed from the bones. This pulp she put in a stone mortar and pounded and worked until it was as smooth and stiff as a jelly. She added a little salt and a teaspoonful of but ter, worked it for a good ten minutes and put it then into a large earthen bowl. She changed her pestle for a wooden potato mash er, and beating up the yolks of two eggs with a cupful of thick cream added that mix ture to her fish pulp by single spoonfuls well worked into the mass. After that a half pint of cream and a little ground allspice was introduced, the vigorous beating was continued for awhile, and then the stiff and frothy mass was turned into a deep buttered tin, that was tightly covered and set in a pot of boiling water for three hours. At the end of three hours the top was cov ered with hot coals to brown the pudding, and it was ready for the table, a stiff, light compound that was served with a rich cream and caper sauee. When not baked as one tmddiug, the fish is molded into balls that are boiled or steamed in a covered tin for the three hours, then fried brown in boiling fat, and served either with or without a sauce. These balls are also served with curry, or small balls are put in a thick fish soup. In eating this Fiske pudding it is hard to be lieve that it is really made of fish, as after all the beating and pounding aud working the pnddinc is as fine and smooth as blanc mange. Freeh cod can be used as well as haddock, and in its season makes by far the best pudding. In frying fish Norwegian cooks have a great way of dusting each piece with grated cheese to give it piquant flavor. Another dish peculiar to all Scandinavians is the rodgrod, or red food in literal transla tion, and this red jelly, with whipped cream, has been a standard dessert at all country inns. To make it they take the juice of eith er raspberries or currants, boil it with sugar and thicken either with potato, sazo or corn starch. Using these thickenings, makes it cloudy instead of transparent, and until the potato thickening was explained rodgrod was a great mystery to ess. Another country dish is flodgrod. or rom negrod, eommenly called "poor man's food," and travelers who go far off the beaten track in the interior, and depend upon sacters and the poorer peasant huts for accommodations, sometimes get nothing else for weeks. This poor man's food begins with a pint of the thickest cream, which is boiled in a tin set in boiling water. A little salt is added and wheat flour is stirred in and made perfectly smooth. As it slowly boils clear butter rises in drops, and that is carefully skimmed off into a cup as long as a globule of it can be found. More flour is stirred in, and when the porridge is at its thickest hot boiled milk is used to thin it. When thoroughly cooked this porridge is eaten with the butter that is skimmed from the boiling cream. - It is a very rich dish and a little of it is satisfying. Travelers who have had amy long experience with flodgrod make faces at the mention of its name, although they were delighted with their first feasts that consisted of one dish. The national bread of Norway is the fla' bro or flat bread, that is hardly thicker than a piece of paper, and is b iked in large sheets about once a year and stored away in the stabburs adjacent to every farm house. It is brought out as needed and freshened by being put in the oven for a few minutes, and a large dish of fla' bro is always a feature of inn tables. Fla' bro is made either of brown barley flour or oatmeal stirred up with salt and water, and has no particular taste or substance to it. It is one of those thingB that a person eats absent-mindedly and auto- I matically, like pop corn and Tom Thumb pretzels. FRIKCB CONSXANTINE'S MA JOB1TV The Royal Family or Greece In Public. f Athens Letter to the Freeman's Journal. The first sensation was caused by the arri val of the maids of honor in Greek dress, a very lovely costume indeed, the lovelier for its simplicity of fold and line; a plain white material, broadly banded on skirt and jacket with red or blue velvet. The headdress was particularly graceful; white gauzy stuff ar ranged hemwise, with gold coins dropping from a single band a little above the fore head. The sound of martial music outside raised expectations on tiptoe, and the Arch bishop of Athens, supported by two bishops with long black veils, walked slowly down the carpeted nave, carrying candles and the gospel. This was to meet M. Triccupis, who kissed the Bible as he entered the church with the baby prince Sfi his English nurse. Another flourish of music, and this time the archbishop went down the church steps and a tremendous burst of cheers rose from out side. The Queen on the King's arm came first, her long train and the princess' held by two "nice little boys" in nice little uniforms. They wore the Greek dress, in which the Queen made a very graceful presence. The Greeks consider her haudsome, whtch she is not, but she looks eminently sweet and good. Her smile is most winning and benign, and she is justly reverenced for her graciousness, simplicity and wide-reaching charity. The little touches ot womanly atrectiouateness in the anecdotes told of her in her hospital ex perience are really charming. Beside her the King is by no means a kingly presence. A refined-looking, bald gentleman, iu a sub dued military uniform, with a touch of sup piessed frivolity in his gravity, a hint at a desire to laugh at the whole proceedings, balanced by a fussy master-of ceremony anx iety. The celebrity of the honr, young Prince Constantine, in infantry uniform, is a sinister-looking, pale, fat boy, rather shy and re served I should imagine, and not graceful in his present fleshy, unformed state. But high hopes are entertained of him, and those who have had opportunities of judging cor rectly assert that there is abundant promise of fulfill Giont. He is an ardent and thought ful student, clever and conscientious. The Greeks adore him at present because he is of their own religion and born in Greece, and make no effort to conceal the fapt that they regard his unfortunate father as an incubus, and yearn passionately for the hour when they can salute their first genuine Greek Kin?, Constantine I. After the beautiful singing of the Queen's choir the prince gave his cap to his brother, and somewhat ner vously and fussily pushed forward by the King, advanced to take the oath. He held the flag of Greece in one hand and placed the other ou the table, and his voice rang clearly and steadily through the church, and he gave the book a loud bourgeoise kiss that might have been heard on the steps outside. He then returned very composedly, kissed his father, to the great surprise of most of the foreigners, ignoring his mother, who was crying, and appeared iu nowise moved by the single impressive cheer that greeted him. Outside the scene was beautiful. Lines of cavalry with magnificent generals iiding up and down, flags and banners waving and mu sic sounding. Indeed there were irresistible echoes from the circus in the style of music, an effect considerably heightened by the jockey appearance of the gentleman who ad vanced with the King's horse. The King be ing remarkably Blight and agile when he sprang into the saddle, the white plumes of his soldier's cap waving gayly in the sun shine, and spurred his horse to a little gal lant enrvetting circlewise about the empty space, the band playing the cheerful, accen tuated music or the circus, the prince fol lowing in the same manner, I was reminded forcibly of a mock race on Hengler's saw dust. The Queen had already driven away in the sumptuous carriage made expressly for the occasion, and in a twinkling the heir ap parent and his father disappeared from the bright scene, the King very prettily and gracefully keeping a few paces behind the ce'ebrity of the hour so as not to have the appearance of claiming any of the honors or the cheers. Yet it can scarcely have been a moment of unmixed pleasure for him to see his son, a raw youth of eighteen, exciting an enthusiasm he has never excited, enjoying a prospective popularity he has failed to ob tain; he the king of a people who openly long to see his son in his place. It is not a blissful position that of the King of Greece, as young Constantine will probably diaeover. A more jealous, fierce ly democratic race does not exist, aud the only family in the country that cannot amuse itself and enjoy the commonest priv ileges of humanity, friendship and social intercourse is the royal family. Years ago the King presumed to give a children's ball, and at once a public discussion arose on the question of royal extravagance and the general impropriety of amusing the poor infant princes. Children's balls at the palace were discontinued in conse quence. As the selection of personal friends among his subjects, arousing thereby the jealousy and hatred of those who were not chosen, was one of the causes that led to the unlucky Otho's overthrow, his success ors have wisely decided to stand aloof from all, and neither visit nor invite any bnt distinguished foreigners to the palace. Everybody who des-ires the honor can pro cure an invitation to their two annual bails by simply inserting their names iu the vis itors' book. The crowd on the Place de la Constitution, where the procession passed, was immense, but a more good matured, courteous and nit re smiling crowd than the Greeks it would be impossible to find. A ohild might find its way through the den sest throng unhurt, which fact is I believe due to the deficiency of high animal spir its in the men as well as their sobriety. Yells or violent horseplay, or vulgar joking are unknown to them, and they are inca pable of finding pleasure in aimless person al cruelty. A Greek will take your life if your existence is in his way; but he will never kick or pinch, or torture women and children for the mere love of the thing. That is why they make such pleasant ani orderly if enthnsiastio gatherings. GUSHIAN BROS. & GO. 84 llawlej SU, Beaton, Bass.
