There is impartial and convincing testimo ny tbat prohibition does not prohibit in Maine. There is no reason to think that it ever will. Bat undeterred by the facts, the prohibitionists of Maine are demanding a law still more severe than the one which experi ence has shown was too severe for enforce ment. The bill constructed to satisfy this demand has without a word in opposition already passed the house and will, it is believed, go through the senate without trouble. This bill makes the penalty for first offense thirty days' imprisonment instead of a fine. For second offense it is also imprisonment. This is the first time in the history of prohibition in Maine that imprisonment for first offense was ever engrafted upon the statute. Apoth ecaries are allowed to keep a reasonable amount of alcohol for compounding medi cines, bat are prohibited from keeping other Kinds of liquors. It makes payment of the United States special tax prima facie evidence against a liquor seller, not only when puch tax is paid by an apothecary, but also by any other person. It prohibits absolutely the sale of cider in any quantity for drinking. All confiscated liquors are to be spilled. Two years ago the statutes were amended so that seized liquors might be sent to the State agency and sold. This it seems has worked badly, so the old-fashioned method of spill ing has been returned to. A fine of $50 is imposed on an employe of a railroad or ex press company who "dumps" liquor from trains between stations. It appears that it is a common practice fer freight trains, espe cially in Oxford ceunty, to slow up at cross roads to allow liquor to be removed instead of running the risk of having it seized at regular stations. Intoxicated persons can be arrested without a warrant. The first oSense for drunkenness is punished by a fine of $10 or by imprisonment not exceeding 15 days and for subsequent offenses imprisonment for 30 days. Towm officers are forbidden serving as town liquor agents. This is probably the severest measure ever proposed in this eountry against ram. Bat how can it be enforced if less severe measures cannot be! EDITOR I Ai NOTES. Mayor Harrison of Chicago is quoted as saying that he has done with publio life. This statement will seem too good to' be true to many ef the people of misruled Chi cago. The meeting in honor of the New York anarchists who have just been released from prison was a significant affair. The speakers were particularly savage against the report ers, and in this they showed a eorrect under standing of the situation. The free press of this country is the deadly foe of anarchy. " San Francisco is not a very pious place. At a recent meeting of the Congregational club there it was said that in that eity of 300,000 inhabitants the attendance at the Pretestant ohnrches was about 83,000, and at the Catholic ohnrches about 18,000, mak ing a total church attendance of about 50, 000. Probably about three-fourths of the population never attend ohurch. The people of Wisconsin think they have had trouble enough from ignorant foreigners who de not rightly appreciate this land of freedom. One of the first measures presented to the legislature this year was a bill to abol ish the board of immigration. It passed both houses without a voiee being raised in oppo sition and has become a law. Foreign im migration, then, is not to be encouraged far ther in Wisconsin. The change of sentiment is the more remarkable from the fact that the foreign-born voters now outnumber the natives and have a number of representatives in the legislature. . Germans know how to do many things well, and they have successfully attacked the sparrow problem. In Germany long troughs are placed at the eaves of houses for the ac commodation of sparrows in building their nests. When the young sparrows are hatched and the mother goes ont to procure food for them wire screens are placed over them, with interstices large enough to permit the passage of food in to the younglings, but toe small to allow them t escape from the nests. As soon as they have grown large and plump they are killed, and they make a very desira ble article of food. M. Beclard has presented some interesting facts to the Academical eouncil of Paris in regard to the number of female students in the Faealty of Medieine in the university there. He reports that since Germany closed the doors of its universities to women the number in Paris has been constantly increas ing. At present the numbers of the various nationalities are: Russians 83, English 11, French 7, Americans 3, Aastrians 2, ' Ruma nian 1 and Turk 1. The greater' number of these do not pursue their studies as far as the doctor's degree. The large proportion of Russian ladies is due to the closing of the female medical school recently founded at St. Petersburg. M. Beclard thinks that the number of students has now .reached the maximum, and will probably decline, since the preliminary studies of the faculty for both sexes have been made alike. The arbitration bill for the settlement of differences between railroad corporations and their employers that has passed both houses of congress and is now before the Presi dents not a very stringent measure, though it may work well if it becomes a law. It pro vides that when both parties agree to arbi trate,, the railroad company "is hereby au thorized" to select one person and the em ploye or employes another, and these two persons a third, who are to constitute a board of arbitration. They are to have the power to snbpoBna witnesses, and compel them to testify about everything but the "secrets" or "records," or "proceedings" of labor organizations. The arbitrators are to get $10 a day, and the witnesses the ordin ary fees paid in United States courts. The power of the arbitrators is, however, con fined to the announcement of their award. No penalty is provided for disobeying it, nor is any machinery provided for enforcing it. Mr. Armour, the great dealer in hog pro ducts, let the fact slip out the other day that he used cottonseed oil in expanding lard, and the New York Times makes this admission the text for the following remarks: A ton of cotton seed yields from 35 to 40 gallons of oil. It has reeently been stated by persons familiar with the business that 500,000 tons of seed were crushed in the mills last year. The oil product was therefore from 17,500,000 to 30,000,000 gallons. Mr. Armour admits that he used in his lard factory one-fifth of this, or from 3,500,000 to 4,000,000 gallons. Three or four years ago the president of the then existing crushers' Ussoeiation declared that one pound ef cottonseed oil would "go as far as pounds of lard." It is very much cheaper than lard. In the calendar year 1886 there were exported from this country 6,- 574,000 gallons of this oil, valued at a little less than 40 cents a gallon. A large part of the oil exported is said to come back to us in the form of olive oil, so-ealled. It appears that exporters and Armour & Co. take about one-half of the entire produot. A large quantity must be used by othet manufac turers of lard who compete with Armour & Co. It is asserted that a large part of the re mainder is used by manufacturers of cheese, and merchants in the cheese trade deolare that this adulteration injuriously affects our export trade, the quantity of cheese experted having fallen from 147,995,614 pounds in 1881 to 86,363,685 pounds in 1886. Only one sixth of the cotton seed of last year's crop was crushed in the factories. The busi ness of making cottonseed oil is therefore capable of expansion. TAMK.

Some ef tbe Instrument He le Called Upon to Play Every Nleht. The drummer in a theater orchestra is one of the many who are overworked and unap preciated. "Come around some night," said a drummer at a local playhouse to a Chicago News reporter. "Sit in the front row, down in my neighborhood, and I'll give you an idea of what a drummer has to do. The drummer is sort of an iustrumental man of all work. You have no idea of the amount of work that he is expected to do in an orchestra that plays anything from Wag ner down to song and dance. My stock in trade comprises two kettle drums, one snare drum, one bass drum, two sets of cymbals, a tambourine, a xylophone, a triangle, a set of bones, an anvil, chimes, a cuckoo whistle, sleigh bells and a few other varieties of in struments. In some pieces the imitation of the pop of champagne corks comes in and that necessitates a pop-gun. Spanish music always calls for castanets and tambourines. Plantation medleys introduce sand shuffles and clogs, and sandpaper and a pair of clogs are therefore made necessary. An imitation of a locomotive whistle is often an effective accessory to this sort of music. A repro duction of a rooster's crow is still another, and there is a piece called the "Baby Polka" in which I am called upon to imitate the doleful wails of infantile humanity. Sleigh bells, the anvil, the chimes and the others I have referred to are all utilized in picturesque and descriptive musio. You keep your eye on the drummer the next time you go to the theater and see how busy he is. Sometimes I blow one of my whistles, beat two of my drums and work the cymbals with my feet all at one and the same time. The kettle drums are apt to get out of tune, and I am obliged to regulate them constantly. An other thing, the vibrations of the drums and triangle-have to be stopped to prevent their marring the harmony after they have served their purpose. "Yes, my work varies according to the sort of play that is on. I have as much work in tragedy and melodrama as I have in opera. For example, in a material tragedy, while the play is in progress I have to be be hind the scenes, intimating by long rolls on the dram that 'grim-visaged war' is doing its best to exterminate the human , race. The characters on the stage ado all the talking, but I do the conflict from the wings. When the hero is finally given his quietus it is I who play his funeral march with a muffled drnm; perhaps even going so far as to dress as a 'super1 and appear in the ranks. Oh; you may scoff at the drummer, and think that anyone can play the triangle and the sleigh bells, but I tell you the drummer who rarely makes mistakes is a virtuoso. Yet I have heard people say that it is unjust for the industrious drummer to receive a salary eqn.il to that of the first violinist." LIFE ON THE STAGE. The Work or An Actor Terribly Trylns to tne Physical System. No, I can't see that men and women who work honestly, as thousands and tens of thousands of them do, upon the stage, can reasonably face an end so terrible more than men and women in other lines of life. But there is this to be said: The actors of America are treated like pigs. We hear of a new theater with a mag nificent entrance, with glass windows and gorgeous mahogany furnishings. We find a patent seat for the auditor, and all the gor geous scintillations that can be dreamed of by science and outworked by art to make the auditorium bright and beautiful and comfortable. But across the stage sweep the wild winds of winter unchecked, and in the damp and dreary dressing rooms we find either an excessive, unchecked steam heat or a bitter, biting blast from tbe unclean cellar. Actors face the footlights, which burn and blazen up into their very eyes, reversing absolutely tne idea or light as born in the mind of the Creator, which comes from above not from below. They are compelled to fashion their faces in an unnatural way. The women dress to suit the times. Taking off, in their overheated or nnderheated dressing rooms the flannel for protection, they garb themselves for the delight and enjoyment of the publio in front in the garment of, so to speak, nudity. Those high np the ladder are well paid, and can command, although they rarely get, com fortable quarters. Bat the little people of the stage, thousands and scores of thousands of tneia to whom five and ten dollars a week is the only straw between them and starva tion, what can they get? .What do they have? So far as unnatural excitement of late hours, impure air, unprotection from eold and heat, the glaring of the blazing gas, the ins and outs of winter weather and summer solstice go, I dare say the life of an actor is made less comfortable, less easy, less desir able than that of any other man who works with head and body combined, but that this life would lead of necessity to an unbal anced mind I am not willing to concede. Dis appointment, worry, apprehension, jealousy, a long, deep sigh for that recognition which so rarely comes, may work n headacky dis position, carve deep lines in pretty faces, and draw deep scars across weary hearts, but many of us know that disappointed hope and barrenness of heart do not necessarily bring that which, after all, may be a com fort and a solace a disturbed, unsettled brain. ITALIAN RAILROAD BUILDERS. Supplanting; Irishmen on Oreat Con tractsTalk tVItb a Contractor. From the New York Tribune. 1 Heman Clark, who is associated with John O'Brien ia building a large part of the new acqueduct, is one of the most extensive rail road contractors in the United States. He employs men by the thousand all over the country and has had a long experience with laborers of all nationalities. His attention was called to the statement recently pub lished that the Italians were rapidly sup planting the Irish in all kinds of contract work in New England. "It is not only true in regard to New England, but of all parts of the country," he said. "On all the big railroad jobs throughout the west you will find Italians in droves. In fact I think I might safely say that at present fully thirty per cent, of the hands employed on this kind of work are Italians. On some roads they are employed almost exclusively. "To be sure they are not nearly as good workmen as the Irish, but they can be hired at cheaper rates so much cheaper indeed as to more than make up what they lack in ability. Then they are as a rule quiet and industrious. They live cheaply and save al most all they earn. Their one aim is to make what they consider a fortune five hundred dollars to one thousand dollars and go back to Italy, where they can live at ease for the rest of their lives on this amount. They never think of settling here, being much like the Chinese in this respect. They are superior to the Celestials, however, as workmen. The Chinese are of little use for outdoor work. On one job we had on the Pacific coast there were five thousand of them employed. I discharged every one of them. It didn't pay to have them around at any wages; at least I thought so. An Irish man looks down on an Italian. He consid ers him far beneath him, and where the modern Romans are employed in large num bers you'll see the Irish superintending them as section bosses." "Do you consider the Irishman the most efficient railroad laborer?" "The Irish and the Scandinavians are the best. We employ a great many of the lat ter. They are good hands and like the Irish are ambitious, only their ambition takes an other form. They are always on the lookout for a place to settle down and buy a little farm. When they have earned enough to do this they go back to this spot and become in time good citizens. The Italian simply works for money and this he carries around with him or else banks it here in New York. They come to this country in droves brought over or course by the padrones who bear almost the same relation to them that the Six Companies did to the Chinese. They are increasing every year. Hixcept in the East they have not yet become a factor in politics. They are averse to strikes and hence employers find them useful as a sort of balance wheel in the troubles that are constantly arising between themselves and their help. For this reasou their emigration is encouraged." A Corseona Baron. From the St. Louis Globe Democrat.,1 Baron Zedwitz, the military attache of the German legation, was the most gor geous thing in regimentals there. His light-blue coat, his tight, white breeches, and his beautiful patent-leather boots made one soberly uniformed envious, and when it came to aigrettes, and loops and cords, and frogs and medals, any American band master would die of envy. He carries a helmet that, with its white horse tail, is as large as a bee hive, and it fills his arm like a debutante's biggest bouquet. His patent-leather boats, that reach np over his knees, do not look like real warfare, or even riding academy practice, and the ferocious-looking silver spurs, that ring music ally every time he sets his heels down in the decisive Prussian marching step, have no points on the rowels at all, simply little round pieces ot silver, that only look danger- ous at a distance, and warn the wearers of tulle dresses to keep away. Qaeer Definitions. In my capacity of publisher, said Mark Twain at the stationers' banquet in New York the other night, I recently received a manuscript from a teacher which embodied a number of answers given by her pupils to questions propounded. These answers show that the children had nothing but the sound to go by; the sense was perfect ly empty. Here are sonje of their answers to words they were asked to define: Au riferous pertaining to an orifice langhter; ammonia the food of the gods renewed laughter; equestrian one who asks ques tions roars of laughter; parasite a kind of umbrella shouts of laughter; ipeoac a man who likes a good dinner renewed laughter. And here is this definition of an ancient word honored by a great party; republican a sinner mentioned in the Bi ble. Shouts of langhter and applause. And here is all innocent deliverance of a zoological kind: "There are a good many donkeys in the theological gardens." Great langhter. Here is also a definition which really isn't very bad in its way: Dema gogue a vessel containing beer and pthar liquids. Prolonged laughter. Here too ia a sample of a boy's composition on girls, which I must say I rather like: Girls are very stuck Bp and dignified iu their man ner and behaveyour. They think more of dress than anything and like to play with dowls and rags. They cry if ' they see a cow in the far distance and are afraid of guns. They stay at home all the time and go to ehureh on Snnday. They are always sick. They are always funny and making fun of the boys' hands and they say how dirty. They can't play marbles. I pity them, poor things. They make fun of bovs and then turn around and love them. I don't believe they ever killed a cat or anything. Thev look out every nite and say, "Oh, ain't' the moon lovely!" There in "one thing I have not told, and that is they alwavs knpw their lessons better than i boys. A Story of Old Bullion. From the Chicago Ntws.J Mr. Murphy, a veteran stenographer of the Senate, told me to day a story about Thomas H. Benton I had never heard before. There has always been a dispute whether Congress should adjourn at midnight of the third of March or at noon the fourth. The latter idea has prevailed, although for many years there was a struggle over it each year. Mr. Benton was one of those who insisted that the session expired with the calendar day at midnight on the third of March, and he used regularly to raise the point. One year when Orr, of South Caro lina, was in the chair, Mr. Benton arose at midnight to a point of order and declared that in his opinion the legal existence of the Senate had expired. Orr asked if the Senator from Missouri insisted upon his point of order that he was no longer a senator (Benton's term expiring that day.) Mr. Benton responded that he did. "Then." cried Orr, "the sergeant-at arms will remove the gentleman from the floor. by his own confession he is not entitled to it." The sally was greeted with lanehter.and Mr. Benton responded that with the permission of the Senator from South Carolina he would claim his privilege as an ex member of the Senate and remain. grij CSoarls. -AND- SILKS IV c continue to receive gome. tiling; new in tbesc goods every day.
