The "old Ro man" was nominated, and a platform such as was ezpeoted was adopted. The platform is an ingenious one, bat of course tne only part of it that has special interest is that devoted to the tariff question. It reaffirms the platform adopted in the convention of 1884, and endorses the views expressed by President Cleveland in his last annual mes sage to Congress as to the correct interpre tation of that platform' upon the question of tariff redaction, and also endorses the efforts of the Democratic representatives in Congress to secure a redaction of taxa tion. Mr. Watterson on Wednesday protested warmly against the effort to keep the party away from free trade. He said that he was willing to make concessions for the good of the party, but he did not want the party to go before the country with an equivocal declaration upon the great subject of the hour. He would sacrifice doctrine to ex pediency, but he would not sacrifice princi ples. The President's message had com mitted the party to free trade, and any declaration that was not in accordance with the message would discredit the party. It would place the party in the position of having withdrawn from a stand onoe taken. He would accept the platform that Senator Gorman had proposed with some modifica tion, and that would be in the direction of an earnest and positive endorsement of the message. He wanted the tariff plank in the platform so. simple that a child would understand it. He asserted that an equivo cal declaration wonld not have the effect of uniting the party. This was what he and his followers thought Wednesday. Yester day they appeared to be satisfied. The platform of 1884 was a skillful one. It said, among other things: "All taxation shall be limited to the requirements of eco nomical government. The necessary reduc tion in taxation can and must be effected without depriving American labor of the ability to compete successfully with foreign labor, and without imposing lower rates of duty than will be ample io cover any in creased oost of production which may exist in consequence of the higher rate of wages prevailing in this country." In his message which was endorsed yesterday the President took a long step toward free trade, bo long that the business men of the country became frightened, and have been so ever since. This performance of the Democratic con vention has given the Republicans an oppor tunity to do a straightforward, honest thing. They will not be slow to see the opportunity. EDITORIAL NOTES. Cleveland's renomination didn't affect the A it a stock market as some expected it would. Republican victory next fall would give lift. The "walking delegate" in New York who got soundly thrashed by the wife of the "boss" whose men he was inciting to strike is in about as humiliating a position as any walk ing delegate has achieved. Ex-Queen Isabella of Spain, who will visit England for the first time this season, has an income of $1,000,000 a year, but is always in debt. She maintains no house in Paris, but always resides at a hotel. She spends vast sums on horses. A woman who can keep in debt with a million a year to spend is an able woman. Erastns Snow, the Mormon aposJe who died a few days ago, was one of Brtgham Young's most devoted followers. Snow, after he had traveled through the wilderness to Utah and worked for years in the southern territory, became apostle to the Scandinav ians. As such he will be remembered. He baptized over 45,000 Mormon converts in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Of these 27,000 went to Utah. He witnessed the trials, the triumphs and the decline of the Brighamic scheme. He was a polygamist. He had thirty-six children. Those thirty-six children have sixty-five children. According to the Philadelphia Press there are three ways to elect a Republican President this year. The problem is simple and aim mers itself down to the result in four States. Assuming that the ' Pacific States will be held, the Press believes that the Republicans can surely count on one hundred and eighty two votes. It takes two hundred and one to elect. If the Republicans oan win New York the v will have seventeen votes to spare; if both Indiana and New Jersey five to spare if both Indiana and Connecticut two to spare. The Press advises the party to con sider these figures and act accordingly. The inference is that the candidates must come from those doubtful States. The profit-sharing system in operation on the Toledo, Ann Arbor and North Michigan railroad seems to work well. Beside getting their regular salaries in full the men are made stockholders and profit sharers. Each employe is entitled at the end of twenty years' service to a certain portion of the stock, which he may sell, if he chooses, immediate ly on receiving it. The disability or death of an employe brings to him or his heirs an amount of stock equal to the wages paid him the year before his disability or death. The dividends ars expected to come from the in creased earnings of the road and no assess ment on wages will be made. The company will reserve $250,000 in stock for the benefit of the employes and will not make the men liable for damages, like ordinary stockhold ers. In the Jnne Forum Mr. W. H. Mollock suc cessfully attacks a somewhat popular fallacy. The proposition that "the rich are getting richer, the poor poorer and the middle classes are being crushed out" he declares to be "not only wide of the truth bnt literally and abso- The lately an inversion of it." He says: "Large incomes, on the whole, are diminishing,small incomes are increasing and moderate incomes are multiplying." His proof is very simple and unanswerable. It is the disclosure of carefully collated statistics. Mr. Mallock avers that if Henry George had made a prop er study of economic statistics the book "Progress and Poverty" never would have been written. Mr. George, for instance, as sumes that there is a constant increase of rent and that it is a cause of poverty. Statistics in England show that there has been no such increase, bat on the contrary a marked de crease. Neither has there been an Increase in poverty. In a large sense there has been an improvement constantly going on. COMPREHENSIVE. Belva A. Lock wood says "Han is a compre hensive term, embracing woman."

From the Los Angels Evening Express. A family named Lambert, living on Lake Charlie Apopka, orTsalaLake, as it is called. report a very thrilling experience. The fam ily is composed of Mr. and Mrs. Lambert and three children, two boys-and a girl baby, the bays being 8 and 15 respestively, and the girl just able to toddle about. They moved there some two years ago and preempted a home s.ead on the south side -of the lake. The house is built about 200 feet from the lake and on a slight elevation, the land in front sloping down gradually to tne waters edge. At the left, off some little distance, is an immense saw grass pond. Near this Mr. Lambert built an enclosure for his pigs, one side facing the lake, and np to a month ago he had a magnificent lot or. po iters, une night several weeks ago he heard a tremen dous unroar in his hog pen, and harrying out with his shotgun and lantern, he was just in time to see one of his line nogs disappear ing in the lake in the mouth of a huge alliga tor, while the scores of balls of fire seen glit tering in the darkeness on the lake Bhowed the presence of others. From that beginning their inroads were kept up with treat regularity, and though he killed s dozen or more, yet tne porn was too nice for them to relinquish their feeding ground. Lately they have grown so bold as to crawl into his yard in. daytime, and the pre datory raids of these marauders on his hogs and fowls have rendered Mr. Lambert's life a burden. A recent adventure, however, of two mem bers of his family with one of these dread ful creatures has so terrified the farmer and has so alarmed his entire household that he is serionsly contemplating abandoning his plaee. One Saturday afternoon a short time aaro Mrs. Lambert, who was m tne back part of the house, was attracted by the screams of her little girl and frantia cries of "Mammal Mamma!" Harrying to the front of the house, she coald not at first locate the little one's whereabouts, but her piercing screams continued, and the almost frantio mother soon discovered the flutter of her child's dress near the lake share, the palmetto bushes nearly hiding her from view. Snatching np an axe from the wood pile, she flew to the water's edge, and as she rounded the palmetto patch a sight onrst upon ner that nearly drove her crazy. On the edge of the bank," with its body half in the water, was a huge alligator. its forepaws outstretched, raising it from the ground, while its tail lashed the water into foam. Just in front of it, and cling ing to a palmetto root with her hands for dear life, was the little girl, her dress being held in the jaws of the alligator, who was slowly dragging the ohild. The alligator's dull eyes gleamed with anger, like red coals of fire, and when Mrs. Lambert appeared the monster uttered a hoarse bellaw and started backward, tearing loose ths child's slight bold. The latter's infantile features were drawn into an agonized appeal, and as the animal dragged ner down she was too completely paralyzed with fear to even ery out. The peril of her baby banished all fear from Mrs. Lambert, and she rushed up-and struck the saurian over ths head with the axe, and, seizing ths child with both hands, tried to pull her away. The sharp blade cnt into the alligator's eye, and sprang at the woman. This left the child free, and they both fell backward. Mrs. Lambert said afterward that at this moment she never expected to save her life. As she fell the alligator swung around his tail with a terrible sounding whisk, bat ths fortunate fall of the two jst placed them outside its deadly sweep. ' - - The alligator advanoed as far as it so aid with unwieldy waddle, and Mrs. Lambert attempted to rise and escape. Her dress caught on a root, and before she could get up and free herself the alligator inads a snap at her and missed, catching hold ef her dress instead. Finding that it had secured soste thing U commenced backing toward ths water, dragging along the prostrate woman, who now f ally realized her peril and filled ths air with her cries for help. She franti cally clutched at the roots as she was drag ged over them, but her dress was of stout materjal, and the alligator's strength soon overcame her feeble resistance. Suddenly with a heavy -sinking of the heart she felt that her foot waa in the water and that, if no help came, she'was doomed to a terrible death. The horror gave her strength for a moment, and she made another frantis effort to free herself, bnt it was in vain, and she felt herself drawn into the water. Sud denly her hands, which were nervously clutching at anything and everything that seemed to promise support, passed over the axe handle. With the swiftness of thosght and with superhuman energy she seized the helve and scrambled np, and bv she cannot say. She managed to deal taegato'r a heavy blow with the blade. With rare good for tune it struck his other eye and crushed into the head. The maddened and wounded rep tile opened its jaws with a roar of pain and rage, and Mrs. Lambert's dress slipped off its huge teeth. Scrambling up she seized her baby girl and fled wildly to the house and fell on the porch in a dead faint. Her huBband, on returning home at night, found her there unconscious, with the child patting her mother's cheek and trying to arouse her. Dootors were at once sum moned, bnt at last accounts the serely tried mother was living over again her heroio fight in the fever ef delirium. The next day Mr. Lambert went to the lake, and at the ssme spot sson found the old rgator lurking in the weeds. As foot-steps were heard approaching, he came forth menac ingly, but two shots from a 44calibre Win chester soon placed him hors de oombat. The wounds in his head were deep, and showed that the mother's arm had struck a terrible blow. , The little child-was net hurt, as the 'gator's teeth had caught in its dress. " SAVED FROM HYDROPHOBIA. The Madstone Successfully Applied to m BogBltten Cowtor, From the Kansas City Journal. Tom Harris, a cowboy from the Staked Plains, Texas, is lying at the Pacific Hotel, in this city, recovering from an attaek of hy drophobia. Last Saturday night he was .bit ten by a "hydrophobia cat" while away from the ranch gathering up stray cattle in the In dian territory. As the fatal result of such a bite is well known in those parts of the coun try, the man left the herd at once and rode to Fort Elliot, Texas, in search of a mad stone, but failing to fiad one he startad for Kansas City, where he arrived Wednesday morning, with his left hand and arm swol len, suffering intense pain. Dr. J. M. Dick son of this city, who possesses a pair of iiiinlgSiiii ii which his grandfather brought with him from Ireland, was at once sent for and began treatment. The wound is a very small and harmless-looking one, consisting of three tiny teeth marks on the inside of the third finger of the left hand. The mad stones have drawn more or Isbs pas from the woand since they were first applied yester day morning as much as half an eggshell ful at one time. The swelling has decreased in proportion, and the doctor thinks now that the case is under control. Harris is a very intelligent and well-behaved cowboy. - He now feels a great deal better, bnt admits that he was badly scared over the increasing pain and the constant swelling of his arm. He thinks he has had a pretty serious experience, and refers fre quently in his conversation to that contemp tible little animal that cams so near sending him off "unprepared," as he confesses. Dr. J. M. Dickson has two staffed speci mens of the "hydrophobia cat" at his resi dence, 1,307 Dripps street. He says it is an entirely distinct species, different from the skunk or polecat, with which it is oicen con founded. The animal is no larger than an ordinary gray squirrel, with red eyeballs, and its long, shaggy hair and feelers stand ing upward and forward. Its bite is always poisonous and fatal i not attended to. The doctor attributes the frequency of hydropho bia in this western country to the prevalence of this animal. It is found in Texas, Indian territory. . Arkansas, Kansas and western Missouri. Often, and especially in severe weather, the "hydrophobia cat" will make its way into honses, dugouts and stables, biting people and animals it may come in contact with, and many, cases of hydropho bia in domestic and wild animals are due to its bito. Verv frequently hydrophobia pa tients come in from the Staked Plains in Texas and Indian territory to be treated with the madstone. - Among Dr. Dickson's former patients was Chief Keokukowa, of the Sac and Fox tribe in the Indian territory, who was a grandson of the old Chief Keokuk, after whom Keokuk, la., was named. How tne Egyptians Cool water. IFrom Carter Harrison 's Luzor Letter. I need state only three facts to show the rapidity of evaporation in upper Egypt. Water too warm to drink is put into a porous jar and placed in the wind, thoguh in the sun; in a half hoar it is as cool as good spring water. At night exposed to a breeze, even when the breeze is rather warm, before morn ing it becomes almost ice-cold. The night of my arrival here 1 took a pouring Datn on a balcony. The wind was balmy, but fresh, The rapid evaporation so chilled me that I coald not stay oat long enoogn tor my Datn. At the foot of the cataract we took a swim in the Nile. We wore onr underclothes for bathings suits. We hang them up before onr state-rooms to dry. In ten minutes they were dry enough to be worn. - We have all heard of the universal habit of all Africans to anoint themselves with oil, and travellers speak of it as a nasty habit. It is, however, necessary in very hot and very dry climates to prevent the cracking of skin. An English officer told me that during the riot winds on the upper Nile his hands and face chapped worse than they ever did in a coia climate- chapped even to bleeding badly. I have found fresh, white butter quite as pleasant on my hands as on my toast. The boys have felt no inconvenience from the winds. My hands are very.sensitive to the effect of a dry, dusty atmosphere. At Assouan we were in the sun during two days. We did not use our umbrellas, onr pith hats beings quite comfortable, and yet we were just on tne edge of the tropics.
