Many ladies are called careless because their skin looks muddy or blotched. What ia the cause i Nature. Why T Because Nature is her own doctor. The system cannot thrive when filled with all sorts of poisonous substances. Then Nature asserts herself and throws it off. Why do the eruptions and discol o rations appear on the face and not on the body? the face has no assistant, ana instead or throwing off is added to. Ladies, by constant use of powders and different cosmetics, have filled the pores of the face until ventilation such as is caused by perspiration in the body is entirely-dosed. The poisonous matter, unable to exude, lies congested nnderneath the surface. This causes eruptions, commonly called eczema. salt rheum, psoriasis, etc. Is there no way to open these channels for throwing this out 1 hv nneninir the nores.

Much maneu vering will of course take place before anything definite is "arrived at. In the meantime those who do not have to take part in the contest can be calm. It is evi dent that those who are doing the maneu vering are in danger of losing some of their calmness. In the house, of course, mush interest was felt in the new Speaker. He showed grasp of the situation which made it plain that he was the right man in the right place. His address was short and very much to the point. He told the members of the house that there was need of more expedition in legislation. There is. Everybody is hoping that the legislators will n&t be found in session next July. Speaker Paige also gave the legislature some wise advice concerning the perform ance of their duties, and especially con cerning their action in regard to the elec tion dispute. He and his address made a good impression. The action of the Republican caucus in renominating Senator Flatt without the slightest opposition was what everybody expected. A state which can have the services of such a senator as he is would be exceedingly ' blind to its own interests and the interests of the country if it did not gladly accept them. Nobody can tell what to-day may bring forth. But it is evident that it will not bring forth a new governor. A POINT FOR THE SAILOR. Judge Simonton in the United States court at Charleston, South Carolina, has stepped out of the beaten track of admiral ty practice. It has been the custom for foreign sailors to bring libels against for eign vessels in our ports in the United States courts, and our courts have always assumed jurisdiction over such cases. It has, however, been customary for the judges to waive this jurisdiction and hand these cases over to the consul of the nation under whose flag the libeled vessel sailed for trial, and the consnlar verdict was usually allowed to stand. ' Judge Simonton does not think that this custom is based on good law. He affirms the jurisdiction of our admiralty courts over all such cases and the right of the judge nnder ordinary circumstances to delegate this jurisdiction; bnt he fur ther holds that there are circum stances nnder which the transfer of jurisdiction cannot be made. Jurisdiction cannot be surrendered in libel cases of a seaman against a vessel when the interests of the libellant will suffer by that surren der. "When the circumstances of the case are such," says the judge, "as de mand immediate investigation, or when the seaman, discharged from the ship, would be put at a disadvantage were she suffered to depart, or whenshe has depart ed he would be compelled to search the world for her, the court will proceed and decide the case against the wish, and at times against the protest of the foreign consul." This is good for the poor sailor, and as he has not had too much justice this de cision will help make things a little more even for him. EDITORIAL NOTES. Six and a half millions of hats were made and sold in Danbury during the last year. This was half the production of the whole oountry. Protection did it. People who can work and who have work to do have something to be thankful for. Sixty thousand people are said to be out of work in the city of Berlin. Ninety thousand are out of work in the east end of London alone. You can't run away from fate. Emma Abbott was in constant fear of pneumo nia, and upon her last professional visit to Cincinnati it was noticed that the windows and doors in her room at the hotel were stuffed and blanketed in order that not a breath of air might blow upon her. She also wore a heavy collar as an extra pro tection. And yet pneumonia claimed her at last. There is a "girl preacher" as well as "boy preacher." Mrs. Maggie Van Cott, the old-time Methodist revivalist, is now holding meetings in Chicago. She is sixty- one years old, and for a quarter of a cen tury she has been active in church work. She has scarcely a gray hair in her head, her voice is Clear and strong and her com plexion has the ruddy hue of health. The only mark of advancing years is a slight deafness. . A plan for the reorganization - of the Swedish army has just been laid before the Swedish parliament. It proposes the universal liability to service as under stood in its widest sense every one able to bear arms must serve. Eighteen thous and men are required by it annually to en list for ten and a half months.- After the full year's service every soldier would be called out to camp for forty-five days every year. The plan has been submitted to a commission composed of the highest officers in the Swedish army. The government has acquired a large amount of Indian land lately. Documents laid before congress show that over a0, "000,000 acres have been acquired within two years, and nine-tenths of it witmn about a year. No less than 9,000,00Q acres of this was received from the Sioux, large part of whom are now on the war path. Very extensive cessions, amounting. it is said, to about 4,000,000 acre in the aggregate, have been made by the Chippe wasv Only a short time ago the Crows agreed to part with a slice of 1,850,000 acres from their . reservation. - Arorutd Oklahoma and elsewhere have been other acquisitions, the ratifications at some of which are now pending in congress. The two Russian grand dukee, Nicholas and his brother George, who are now in India, and who are soon to sail for China and Japan, are expected in San 'Francisco about March 1. Thence they will proceed across the continent by special train, stopping off at Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Niagara Falls and New York. On their arrival at - New York the party will find a Russian fleet in waiting. A stop of but a few days will be made in that city. From New York the Czaro witz goes direct to St. Petersburg. The Grand Dnke Nicholas is but twenty-four years of age. His brother George is nine teen years of age. They are accompanied on their present trip, which is undertaken with the view of instruction, by trusted officers of the Russian army. Mr. Johnson Sides, the Piute'Vho was accused of being the "Indian Messiah," says the aconsation is unfounded. He says: This whole story was begun by a Piute over in Mason valley they call Jack Wilson. Everybody knows him, and he was raised there. He's about 40 years old and his Piute name is "We-vo-cah," but he says God calls him "Po-he-djow," and now he is God's son. He tells everybody he got sick and died two years ago last winter, and God made him alive and said he muBt preach to the Indians, and so he does ever since. He tells 'em that all what's dead will come to life again and get all their country back, and the whites will have to leave, so they'll be better off then they ever was before, with plenty of game and whatever they wants. He says the Indians must come out and see .him every three monts, and lots of 'em do. Captain Sam is one that believes in him, and he goes over there regular been there seven or eight times. ' There used to be much more Indians what believed in him, but he's gettin' played ont. AGREEABLE. Mrs. Honey ton Are those some of the cigars I gaveyou? Honeyton Yes. Mrs. Honeyton How are they!

Speculating Railroad Officials. From the Chicago Herald. Nearly all railroad officials speculate in stocks more or less, and almost all who do are the easiest shorn lambs who dabble in Wall street. There are two classes of rail road officials who are known in Wall street. One class comprises presidents and directors, who are on the inside. These men usually know what they are about, and almost always make money. The other class is composed of subordinate officials. They know nothing about the financial management of the roads, and are lambs of softest fleece. The first class operates to make millions, is in instant communication with Wall street and the financial backers of the roads, and sells short as readily as it sells long. It is al temately bull and bear on the values of tne securities of tne corporations it repre sents. The lambs speculate on the pros pects of an advance. They see a heavy tonnage passing over the road, great crops being gathered, -find know what rates are twins' received for transportation. From sucn causes as tnese tney reason out an in crease or decrease in net earnings. They know that tne legitimate effect of an in crease in net earnings would be to advance the value of the-stock, .but they do not know what the policy of wall street may be. To the credit osMhe lambs it should be said that they are rarely found selling tne stocks of their own roads snort. In the late Wall street manipulation party of eight Chicago railroad officials were shorn of a round $47,850. They in cluded representatives of four roads and had inside information that the earnings of tne wortnern r'acino for Uotober were the largest for any month in the history of the road. Northern Pacific was selling cneap ana Tney rormea a pool to buy. Theoretically they were rieht, for North ern Pacific is paying about four per cent. on its preferred stock and the road is car rying every pound of traffic it has the fa cilities to handle. But theories did not pan out. In the storm that swept through Wall street Northern Pacific was swept out of sight, and the margins of the pool kept company with the stock. It is a rule on all Yanderbilt roads that no one con nected with them shall speculate in stocks or manrins. This rule was laid down by Commodore Vanderbilt, and no excuse is taken for its violation. The offender is invariably peremptorily discharged. Of course this law does not apply to members of the Vanderbilt family. . but they lone ago passed out of the speculative stock market, and do not operate to any extent on margins. Jay Gould's railroad officials are not much given to stock speculation although some of them occasionally take a layer. As a rule the. officers of the Gould roads are the best paid, beat cared 1 lor rauroau omciaia - in ' tne oountry, While they are held to a strict accounta bility with an iron hand, they know that Jay Gould, more than any other railroad owner In the United States, appreciates faithful work in his interest, but woe be tide the man who betrays Mm, for he has a long memory. Gould discourages stock speculations by his employes, and it is re lated that once upon finding that his con fidential Moriaini was taking secret advan tage of knowledge picked nn in hia offim Gould put up a job which cost Moriaini every cent he had in the world. Then Gould told him that he would let him in occasionally, and did it so well that Mori sini has made millions. What Gould dis liked in that case was Moriaini using pri vate information without permission. Most of the railroad officials in the west who had any money up in Wall street last month now regret that they played with the cyclone market. There is, however, one railroad president who has made a for tune which runs into millions. James J. Hill, pieaddent of the Great Northern rail way, is already worth fifteen to twenty millions. He has risen by bold strokes which throw the wildest dreams of ro mance in the shade, and would amaze the late and much-esteemed Jim Fisk. Mr. Hill, who is known to several millions of people as plain "Jim," is a believer in the doctrine of keeping on hand large amounts of ready cash, something which is also practiced by Russell Sage. Recently 'Jim" Hill negotiated a loan of thirty million dollars in cash for bis company to be used to complete its line from Montana to Paget Sound. Most of this money had been paid over when the storm struck Wall street and was in deposit in the east ern banks. Mr. Hill promptly released this surplus on good security, at whatever the ruling rate of interest was, and made a nice pile of shining dollars. He also picked up a few shares of dividend-paying ... 1 V- - L . . . dhku vtuiuu were selling ior tne price that is asked for nice shaving paper with fluted edges. Altogether Mr. Hill is cred ited with having scooped in about three to nve million dollars and to have won the friendship of Jay Gould by materially aid ing that gentleman in his manipulation of the market. "Jim" Hill is just now en gaged in another speculation which is proving profitable to the Great Northern railway as well as himself. The recent stringency of the money- market compelled the banks of the northwest to refuse to carry the great grain buyers. As stated before, "Jim" Hill is the gentleman who carries plenty of ready cash in his vaults. in this emergency he stepped to the front and told the grain buyers that he would advance all the money necessary to move the wheat crop at a reasonable interest, provided all their shipments should be consigned by the Great Northern to the head of Lake Supei ior or Minneapolis and then put in his elevators. 1ms oner was eagerly accepted, and as a result grain is being teamed in some instances from points six miles from competing roads distances of from twelve to twenty miles to reach Jim" mil s ureat Northern railroad. One of the greatest chances to make money id stock speculation nas been in Illinois Central. A few days before the annual meeting this stock was at a heavy premium. The day of the annus! meeting it fell below par. Since then its value has fluctuated between ninety-five and par. Saturday it closed at ninety-seven and one half. When Illinois Central started to slump it fell off in chunks of two to four cents. Yet no one in Chicago was paring any attention to it, and one of the largest brokerage officers in the city has handled less than three thousand abar since Oc tober 1. When W. K. Ackennan was president of the Illinois Central a raid was started on the company s stock by a lot of Wall street speculators. There was no earthly cause for the rai 1 except specu lation, and President Ackerman coolly said: "111 teach 'em." tie poured in buying orders and made the speculators that were raiding bis company so weary that this class of people steered clear of Illinois Central for many a year after. Among the railroad lambs of Chicago there are both bulls and bears. Since Jay Gould made his latest coup be has gained wonderfully in importance even for so in fluential an old gentleman. Among the bulls he is referred to as the coming lead er as the Moses who is to gather the scat tered and warring railroad corporations and lead them out of the desert into the land of plenty. When this theory was preached by a well-known general freight agent an equally well-known official con nected with the passenger department of a western road remarked with a sarcastic in flection of his tenor voice: "That is the trouble. Mr. Gould is a Moses, and, like Moses, he will strike a rock which will bring forth tons of water." An Intcreallng; Game for Children lo Be Played With a Woolen Ball. From Table Talk One of the prettiest little games for children is called the "wool ball." The children are seated around a perfectly smooth topped table. A little raw wool is formed into a light ball and placed in the center of the table. The children then commence to blow toward it, each one try ing to drive it from him and off the table if possible: and the child who allows it to pass his right side and fall on the floor is excused from the table, and stands in a line by the wall. Each one who allows the ball to pass by and fall on the floor retires in line. The longer the ball is is kept on the table, every one blowing as hard as possible, the more abusing the game be comes. The "giantess" also furnishes considera ble amusement at a children's party. A tall young man should be dressed in a long skirt, then au umbrella should have a cloak buttoned around it, first having ar ranged on top a ball the size of an ordina ry head, with a hat or bonnet and a black veil over what should be the face. As the cloak is buttoned around the head it gives a very good appearance, lhe bead must be well fastened to the point of the um brella, so that when the giantess bows there will not be the slightest danger of her losing her head. The umbrella is par tially opened, so that tne ribs will spread ont the cloak. The young man, of course, gets under it, holding the handle as high as possible, thus appearing like a perfect ly enormous woman. The children are now all In tne parlor; a knock is neara at the door, some one opens it, announces and introduces to the children "Miss Lit tlefield." The giantess then walks into the room and bows to the children; and if the giantess then opens and closes the umbrella slowly it gives the most comical appearance. He may then begin, in an unnatural voice, to converse with the chil dren, telling them interesting stories and describing to them his beautiful home. Let these stories be beautiful in their character, mild, interesting and soothing to the children. jl; 7 X S X HURBV The words came harshly from the nra awaiting the next act, and she who baa fainted takes the leading part.

Incidents In tne Lire or a methodls Minister at n Poor Appointment. (From the New York HeraM. One of the clergyman in the New York conference of the Methodist Episcopal church tells this story about himself: "When I was the pastor of a small church in Delaware county, this state, I had a hard time in trying to keep soul and body together. My labors were arduous and the salary only $400 a year, and if we had not received various donations of pro. visions from parishioners almost equally poor as ourselves, we would in all proba bility have starved to death. "It ia what is known as a 'backwoods appointment,' being eighteen miles from a railroad, and located in a valley created by thickly wooded hills. To give you an idea of onr reduced circumstance, I am compelled to any that there was bnt one white shirt in the house, and that was shared in common by my eldest son and myself. When ha wore it I went into the pulpit without one, and made up for the deficiency the best I could. "One Sunday we had the presiding elder of the' district with u. He had come the previous night. Early in the morning he was disturbed br this ques tion: " 'Father, father, who wears the shirt to-day, vou or mef "Well, I was in doubt who was entitled to incase himself in that useful garment on that occasion, bnt in a spirit of aelf-aacri-fice, I shonted from the confines of my room: 'I think it's your turn, my boy." "I thought no more about the matter until after breakfast and family prayers were over: then the elder took me aside and asked if there was only one white shirt in the house. Of course it was an embarrassing question, and I tried to evade making a reply, but he was persist ent, and I Anally was forced to admit the truth. Tears welled up in the elder's eyes, and he offered to part with some of his meager hoard of money, but I assured him that I did not need it, and as I refused absolutely to accept a cent he did not press the matter further. "Still, although the elder was a kind hearted man and received but little more salary than myself, yet he loved to indulge in practical jokes. On another occasion he accepted an invitation to dine with us and my wife, who always seemed to stand in awe of the big, dignified elder, made an extra effort to prepare tempting repast. Oysters were scarce and very high in that section and consequently a luxury, but my wife concluded that for once we should have oysters. -"Well, thanks to recent wedding fees, she was able to buy them. Then she exer cised all her .ingenuity to place them on the table in every conceivable form that would please the eye and gratify the taste. "Well, when we sat down to the table we saw oysters, stewed, oysters fried, oys ters roasted and oysters on the shell. It was literally a wilderness of oysters. "Ontside of oysters there was, in fact, but little to eat except bread, butter, ap ple ssnce, and, I believe, some sage cheese. Still the little woman sat with a beaming countenance, eagerly anticipating the el der's delight at the unexpected treat. "After a blessing had been invoked I, as a matter of form, turned to onr guest and inquired: " 'Elder, will you permit me to help you to some of the oysters!' "The elder's face assumed a severe ex pression as he slowly and deliberately re plied: " 'Well, dominie, I hate to say it, but the truth of the matter is I very seldom eat them. "I glanced at my wife. Her face was almost a crimson hue and tears were start ing from her eyes. I think I felt a trifle savage, but I betrayed no sign. 'After a tew seconds ot tne most pain ful embarrassment I ever experienced the elder broke the silence by saying with un ruffled deliberation: " 'Yon see, dominie, I very seldom eat oysters because I very seldom get them,' and he burst into a tremendous roar of laughter that almost made the dishes rattle. 'Of course he did ample justice to the dinner, which at the beet was frugal enough, bnt I don't think that my wife ever quite forgave him for those painful moments of suspense."
