We suppose his claim will be that the court has no right to go behind the re turns, and that it must tell the legislature that it has not done right in failing to de clare Judge Morris governor. There are quite as many opinions about the jurisdiction and probable action of the court as there have been about the legisla ture. Some good lawyers think the court will say that the whole matter belongs to the legislature and will refuse to consider it. If this should happen of course no progress would be made. If, however, the court should decide to go into the whole matter its decision would doubtless make some things clearer than they have been, and perhaps when the legislature came together again the de cision would be accepted by both parties. Time will tell. It seems to us that the case would be in better shape for the court if Judge Morris had done some act per taining to the office of governor and then been inquired of by Governor- Bulkeley. But nobody can be entirely pleased in thiB muddle. It is to be hoped that the court will feel able to deal with the question. Unless it can there is no hope for any set -tlement. ANOTHER DANGER. It now appears that Woman would do well to give up chewing gum, or at least be careful to chew real gnm when she chews. An interesting case has recently been tried in an English court, in which a chewing gum seller was obliged to defend himself for being such a seller. It was submitted that the article was not one of food, since it was sold simply for chewing. Then it was suggested, that as sweets are so utterly indefinite in their composition, it was impossible to - deal with them as ordinary articles of food. And the climax was reached in the contention that it was not sold to the prejudice of the purchaser, as the complainant said he did not intend to eat it. This was extremely ingenious, but the purchaser happened to be the in spector of nuisances, who was merely col lecting evidence. The case ended for the present with the imposition of a fine, on the ground that the substance was sold to the prejudice of the purchaser, inasmuch as it was not in the nature of the substance and quality of the article demanded by the purchaser who asked for gum and got paraffin wax. All of which has moved the serious and care-taking London Lancet to remark: If the case is ever taken to a higher court, it is quite possible that it may be argued that the complainant did not ask for "gum," but for "chewing gum;" that he did not get 'paraffin wax," but only 50 per cent. of "parafifin wax," and the remaining 50 per cent, of unknown ingredients which sufficiently bring the substance within the legal meaning of "chewing gum." But what is "chewing gum?" The following definition might be suggested: A sub stance of very variable composition, igno rantly employed by children, which, when containing paraffin wax, may lead to very grave dangers, and the sale of which should be prohibited. Well, well! If woman cannot safely lace or chew gum, what can she do? EUITOKUL NOTES. The latest news indicates that Italy won't "stay mad" very long. Twenty-two states bave already adopted ballot reform laws, and Illinois and New Hampshire are taking steps to join the procession. Some people will not only look a gift horse in the mouth but they want to drive him. Andrew Carnegie has given $2,000,- 000 to Pittsburg for a public library, but the city council will not allow him to have anything to say about where it shall be located. Sugar is cheap enongh, but it is well to remember, in the midst of the general joy, that one of the latest terrors discovered by the microscope is the aearus saochari, which looks like a crab, or even more so, and which has been discovered to the num ber of 268,000 to the pound in cheap sugar. The microbe theory is a serious matter to "J. P. D.," who writes to the New York Sun that in his judgment electric microbes killed General Sherman, killed Governor Robinson, killed Lawrence Barrett, killed Dr. Crosby, and are to-day killing thous ands in our cities and towns throughout the land. Honest toil is sometimes rewarded. It is related that a young man camping in the Sierras discovered and captured a butter fly of an unusual species. He sent it the Smithsonian institution at Washing ton and received a check for $1,500, with the request to make careful search for other moths of the same kind. It was an individual of a fossil species, supposed to be extinct, and great was' the excitement among scientists at the discovery that one of the race had been recently alive. Al though diligent search has been made by men paid for the service no other specimen has been found. A curious example of how modern re search in bacteriology was foreshadowed long ago is furnished in a report of a re cent lecture of a scientist given in Nature, He there quoted a French traveler .isiting England in 1663, who attended a meeting of the Royal Academy on May 23 of that year. At this meeting it was reported. among other thingB, that the germination of insects does not arise from decay; for the intestines of an animal and other parts which easily corrupt, having been placed in class, closed with cotton wool, so that no fly or other aniroal could enter, but only the air could penetrate, they bad been preserved for six months without maggot or other thing being observed. This is almost exactly the experiment of Pasteur in the present generation, except in the latter experiment, not only were in sects and other animals excluded but also the microscopic vegetable germs, which were utterly unknown to the earlier ex perimenter. German colliery owners think the day is coming when they will send coal to Eng lish markets. This idea is based partly on the working out of England's best seams; bnt more particularly upon the enormous improvement in transport through the great net-work of waterways in Germany "which will be finished about ten or fifteen years hence. The Rhine Ems canal, which will be opened in about four or five years, is to connect the Rhen ish Westphalian coal and iron industry with the German North Sea ports, from whence it is to-be exported and placed on the English markets at cheaper rates than the home production. The Oder-Spree canal already in existence is to be widen ed, so as to enable larger barges, such as will be used on the Rhine-Ems canal, to be employed, and along this waterway the Silesian coal will be brought to Berlin, and again through the Spree and Havel to the whole Elbe district and the North Sea.

George, I got it?" "And you read it, didn't yon?" "Yes I read it. in fact I I read it over twice:" "And now, Florry," he said, growing bolder, "I have come to learn my fate." "The best I can promise you, George," said the blushing daughter of the distin guished Congressman, withdrawing her hand from the ardent clasp of the infatu ated young man, "is that I will advance your letter to a third reading to-morrow." A sick man sent for the nearest spiritual adviser. It so happened that the minister was a new fledgling just emerging from the seminary. Ho was dadish in the extreme. His coat was cut in true clerical style and his face bore the expression of affected lit erary culture. Going to the poor man's house he sat on the edge of a chair, toying with his hat and stroking his downy mous tache. Said he to the dying man, after a long spell of silence painful to all: "What induced you to send for me!" "You will have to speak louder," faint ly replied the sufferer; "I'm dull of hear ing." "What induced you to send for me?" re iterated the clergyman. "No use, can't hear. What does he say, Mary?" turning to his wife. And then in a loud, shrill and stentorian voice the woman replied:- He savs what in the deuce did yon send for him for?" Insurance Journal. ITALY'S NAVAL FOWEII, Not Equal to That ot England and France bnt Very Formidable. From the New York World. As a naval power Italy does not, of course, stand in the same nrst class ranc as England or France,bnt at the same time she has some of the most efficient war ships in the world. Her fleet, according to the latest available information, consists of about twenty-two armored ships, ten of which are of the most modern construc tion, with a displacement each of over 11,000 tons. Their speed is fully equal to that of ships of their class, averaging be tween fourteen and sixteen knots. They are armed with Armstrong breech-Ioadiug rifles with a calibre of from thirteen to sixteen inches. In addition to these she has an nnarmored fleet of ten or twelve cruisers and as many gunboats, all built within the last ten years. Several other cruisers and gunboats are also in course of construction. When the Duuio, one of her hne-of-bat- tleships, was finished sixteen years ago she was the most formidable war vessel then afloat. Two years later the Dandolo, her twin, was launched. Both attracted the attention of naval officers all over the world, and elaborate reports were made upon them by our own naval authorities. Both the Dniiio and the Dandolo have since been nrpassed by France and England, bnt the improvements maae in mem leave uiem very little behind their rivals of a more modern date. The Duilio has displace ment of over 11,000 tons, and her coal ca pacity enables her to steam at ten knots an hour nearly 4,uuu tunes, it driven her speed is upward of fifteen knots. Built of iron and steel, with a water-line armor belt of 21 i inches thick, together with armor on her turrets 18 inches thick; her length, 840 feet 11 inches; beam, CI feet 11 inches, and draft 26 feet 7 inches. She carries four 17.72-inch 100-ton muzzle-loading rifles, three 3.7-inch breech-loading rifle, and fourteen machine guns. In addition she is equipped with torpedo tubes for throwing the -most improved missies of this character. Her engines are 7,500 horse power. This discription spplies equally to the Dandolo. 1 wo oiner iormiaaoie snips, twins also. are named the Lepanto and the Italia. The displacement of the Lepanto is nearly 14, 000 tons. The material used in her con struction is steel, and above the water line she fS protected by s belt of compound armor. This armor amidships is six teen inches thiok, while on the cit adel it is nineteen inches. Her length is 400 feet six inches; beam. 74 feet, and draught 81 feet. Her highest speed ia nearly nineteen knots ah hour, and at the rate of ten knots she can carry coal sufficient to make nearly 9,000 miles. The turret guns of the Lepanto are superior to those of the Duilio. The 17.72-inch gun ot the former vessel, with 550 pounds of powder, throws an armor piercing projectile of 2,000 pounds and contains a bursting charge of 83 pounds of powder. The shell is the same weight, but the bursting charge is 72 pounds. The breach-loading 17-inch rifles require a fir ing charge of 900 pounds of powder. The 17.72-inch projectile on leaving the gun is cspable of penetrating nearly 28 inches of wrought iron and the 17-inch projectile 33 inches. These big battle ships are supplemented by the Andrea Doria, the Francesco Horo sini and the Ruggiero di Lauria. The de sign is in a general way similar to that of the Dniiio. Among the old armored ves sels is one of 4.370 tons, four of 4,200 tons each, two of 5,900 tons each, two of 2,700 tons each and one of 2,200 tons. Nearly all these are antiquated. Italy has also some magnificent cruisers. One ot them, - the Piemonte; has a dis placement of 2,500 tons. Three hundred feet in length, with a draught of 18 feet, she carries a most efficient battery of rapid-firing guns. Her horse-power is 13,000 and her speed averages twenty-one knots. She can carry 6,000 tons of coal and steam 13,000 miles at ten knots an hour. Italy adopted a shrewd policy in the con struction of her navy. When our moni tors and ironclads 'during the civil war revolutionized the old order of naval architecture all over the world Italy al lowed the other European governments to lead the way in construction, and entered upon the work of reorganization herself when she had the most improved models and types ready at hand. The result is that at a less cost she has secured a navy not so very far inferior, so far as the num ber of ships goes, to any one of them. The United States have only one ship that could for a moment think of opposing the the great battleships of Italy. She is the Miantonomah. Italy has ships capable of shelling New York from the open sea. Pensioner' Yonn( Wives. (From the Indianapolis News. It is important for young women who are contemplating marriage with a veteran for pension purposes to note that a law has been passed on that subject. By the provisions of the disability set, marriages contracted after last June do not entitle the widows thereof tb draw a pension. This is rather rough on the old soldiers, whose chances of getting a young wife are largely reduced, but it will save our posterity several generations hence from such a pension roll as we are carrying, on which are the names of twenty-three Revo lutionary widows, over one hundred years after the close of that war. I'sefnl Annie Kooner. From the Inter-Ocean. A horse which had been pulling a heavily loaded wagon suddenly took it in to his head to lie down on State street, and then he refused to rise. A large number of men gathered around, and of course every man had a'suggpstion to offer. - '"Yank the bridle!" yelled a man in a buggy. The bridle was "yanked," bnt tb. harm still lay there. - - "Twitch his tail!'' screamed a man on tne sidewalk. The Uil was twitched, and the horse seemed rather to like it. "Poke him in the ribs:" said a third sug gested The prodding was promptly performed. No result. "Stick pins in his earl" remarked a man, evidently an active member of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 'Twas done, but the horse only moved his head from side to side. "Three or four fellows get astride him and hell get up," was the next suggestion. The crowd was ready to try anything, and it detailed four venturesome men, who climbed on the horse and kicked simul taneously with their double quartet of heels. But the animal never budged. The situation was getting serious for the crowd was blocking the thoroughfare, when a gentleman yelled : "Sing Little 'Annie Rooney' to him!" That was enough. With a snort of rage the horse raised nimseit to his tore feet, then to his hind ones, and started off so rapidly that many of the spectators had hairbreath escapes. The Feather Camp. From the Lewiston Journal.) A big sheet and a small feather are all that are needed for this game, provided you have the children, and if you haven't them in the house call in the neighbor's children, and in giving pleasure to them and joining in their mirth you will almost grow young again yourself. To play this game the players all sit upon the floor in a ring", holding on to the edges of the sheet, which they try to keep as taut as possible. One person is "it," and he or she tries to grasp and capture the feather, while the others strive to prevent this by blowing the feather across the sheet out of reach of the pursuer. Meanwhile the latter runs this way and that around the circle of player, grabbing here and there and doing his best to get hold of the elusive object. To accom plish this is quite difficult, because a sin gle well directed puff of the brcith will send the feather clear across the sheet When the person who is "it"' succeeds in capturing the feather, the player to whom the feather was nearest when it was grasped becomes "it" in turn, his or her place being taken by the capturer. A Great Flsht- L. E. R. in the April SI. Nicholas.) The first I heard of it was when Fred came rushing into the house after break fast. "The enemy!" he cried. "The ene my is npon us!" "Wherer' cried the oth ers of us, jumping up. "In the battle field, of course!" he said: and he seized his flag and rushed out again. We all followed as quickly as we could. I pnt on the helmet and Max took the dram, and we let Toddles have the bugle this time because he d just tumbled down, and he had the hearth-broom, too. eo he waa all right. We ran into the field and found that the enemy bad taken np a strong po sition Deninct the old cannon, (liars is real battle-field, yon know, and baa been there ever since the war.) So we formed in line and Fred made n flank movement. meaning to take the enemy in the rear; but when he heard Fred coming he charged on our line and 1 odd lea ran away.' but Alas and I retreated in good order aad formed' again behind a rock, and began to eh pit him-with trreen amilea. Be aioDDed toat the apples, and meanwhil Frad completed his flank movement, and falling npon the enemy's rear, wbaclupd it violentlv with stick, waving bis flag all the ' time and shouting, "Yield, caitiff! Yield, craven hound!" (I tell him that nowadava neonle don't say those things in war, bnt he al ways says that Roland and Bavard did. and that what suited them will suit him.) Well, the enemy turned suddenly on Fred and drove him back againet the can non: bnt by that time we had advanced again and Toddles waa blowing tbe bugle as hard aa be could, which seemed to dis concert the enemy. Fred took a flying leap from the cannon right over bis back, and putting himself at our head rallied us for a grand charge. e rushed forward, dnving the enemy before u, A panic seized him and he fled in disorder; we pur sued him aa far as the fence, and he got through a hole and escaped, but not be fore we each bad a good whack at him. It waa a glorious victorv. Fred made ns speech afterward from tbe cannon, and we all waved our well, whatever wa bad to wave, and vowed to slay the invader if he ever dared to show hi. nose on onr aide of the fence again. Ah, yea! it was a splendid fight. "Who was the enemy f "Aliy, didn't I sav! Farmer Thurston's pig, of course! IJXisceXlancous. - VA ULTS AND CESSPOOLS Thoroughly and Neatly Don. s-y FAKNHAKI.
