The national welcome to Admiral Dewey during the past week, al though occurring in New York, was comprehensive and wide-reaching enough to distract public atten tion from politics even in Pennsyl vania. As a consequence it was the dullest last week in September in State politics known to Pennsylva nia politicians in many a year. Little as the people of Pennsyl vania cared about the State cam paign when there was a Dewey to be welcomed, the Republican lead ers of the State found time to form ulate a plan of campaign and make the Dewey celebration the occasion of its inauguration. Senator Quay and his lieutenants determined that a 'hearty support of the adminis tration in the prosecution of the war in the Philippines should be the Republican slogan in the com ing campaign, and the trip of the Tenlh Regiment to attend the Dew ey celebration with Lieutenant Col onel Barnett, the Republican can didate for State Treasurer, at its head, served the purpose ot start ing the military feature of the cam paign in good shape. The crowds that turned out to welcome the gal lant Tenth saw and heard Colonel Barnett, and while 110 word of pol itics was said in any of the public speeches made during the entire triumphant journey, the effect cculd hardly be otherwise than fa vorable to the cause of the Repub lican candidate. The military campaign for Re publican victory decided upon and incidentally opened .ast week, will be in full blast from this time for ward without any attempt to dis guise its purpose. Colonel Barnett and several of his fellow-officers of the Tenth Regiment will compose one stumping party which wi.l traverse the State from end to end, appealing to the Republicans to support the Philippine war policy of the government by electing the Republican State ticket in Pennsyl vania. Another party,' headed by Lieutenant Governor Gobin, and composed ol veterans of the civil war, will go up and down the State asking the voters to save the Union once more by voting the Republican ticket, and in this way two wars will be utilized to help elect the Republican candidates for the State offices to be filled at the coming election. Of course Candidate Creasy and his Democratic colleagues have been insisting, and will continue to insist, that the Philippine war and the late war for the Union are not the issues of the Pennsylvania State campaign this year. They have been denouncing, and will continue to denounce, Republican corruption, extravagance and mis management in conducting the .-"late government, and the cam paign will be hotly contested from this time forward oii these two widely divergent lines. As the Republican and Democratic cam paign managers refuse to agree as to what the real issue is, the final appeal must be to the voters to de cide the question at the polls, and the candidates and orators of the respective parties will make the welkin ring from this time forward until election day in their attempt to get the majority of the voters to decide it their way. limes. Admiral George Dewey- Physically the Admiral is not an impressive man in the sense that some of our noted military men are, but he has a poise of body and head when standing or fitting that attracts the eye of the stranger. He has dignity with absolute ease. He catries him self gracefully for a man whose legs are trained to the sea, and he is not affected in manner or movement. His step is usually light, but net especially quick. He is not tal', and is rather under the aveiage height of naval men; but, in good condition, he has the ap pearance of being fairly w ell rounded. His bones are small and his fingers long and slight. His hands are often employed in ntrvous gestures not in the French, but in the New England style emphatic and serious, but not gymnastic. As he talks he shakes his head to give emphasis to what he is saying. If 1 he is specially interested his eyes move quickly about, watching your o.vn ex pression and possibly that of others, looking bright and cheerful one mom ent and severe the next, according to your answers or comment. Still, his eyes are not what would be called shifting. He has a firm, earnest, con trolling look in them when 1 e has orders to give or hears reports or im portant matters. He could not be called handsome, because he is not sufficiently tall, but he has a prepossessing, clear-cut, in teresting, almost classical face that seems equal to the responsibility of giving expression to the thoughts that have birth in his active brain. He is much better looking than the average photograph or sketch. None of his pictures brings out the best that is in the face, nor the lines which one no tices in his actual presence. The or dinary portrait that is seen all over the land gives no conception of the real force and strength that he pos esses, and is therefore disappointing to the man who has been accustomed to seeing nim in person. His hair is an iron gray tending towards whiteness, which becomes his composed but earnest visage. The nose is large,but it indicates his force of character, and does not mar the general effect of his physiognomy. There are resolution and persistency in the lines of his mouth, and when his lips are moving in stating an order or giving an opin ion where he has made up his mind, there is no difficulty in determining whether he is in earnest. His com plexion has naturally been sallow much of the time at Manila, for that condi tion is superinduced by the climate, but after his long voyage home it is quite probable that he will have con siderable color. He always looks clean and neat, but is not over-particular, and gracefully accepts the con ditions of war and sailor life even if they do not give him all the privileges, comforts, and pleasures of the club. His wonderful adaptability has made him as much at home in the stripped cabin of the Olympia as he would have been in a hotel or club in New York or Washington. In fact, he gave no signs on the flag-ship of desiring lux urious surroundings, and the simplic ity of furniture dating back to the days of fighting, compared with his simplicity of dress and manner, seem ed to present a harmonious situation in line with his habits and wishes. There was no "fuss and feathers" about him or his environment at Manila. Hon. John Barrett, in Harp er's Magazins. A Substitute For Ice Liquid air is now being used as a refrigerant, and three gallons, which cost only 15 cents, and which will not cost three cents next year, equal a ton of the coldest ice. One gallon of it in a refrigerator will keep everything at freezing point for a week, and it takes up less than 40 cubic inches of space. Being dry as well as cold, it stops deqay in articles after it has set in. Already contracts have been let to build cars for the transportation of meat and fruit. The cost of the plant is said to be so small and the process so simple that every little village will have one. The prevention of fruit irom decaying will alone save millions of dollars, and at the same time cheapen it greatly. Two of our local sportsmen are authority for the statement that quail are unusually plentiful this season. 74 That Blows Nobody Good, tt That small ache or pain or weakness is the " ill wind" that directs your attention to the necessity of purifying your blood by taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.

Berks county has always been not ed for its large .nd highly successful agricultural exhibitions. The coming exhibition to be held in the city of Reading on the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th of October, judging from the prepar ations in progress, will eclipse all pre vious efforts in that direction. Many special attractions have been provided and the display in every department promises to be very fine. In fruit the county is rarely excelled, and the season having been favorable, a fine assortment of varieties may be expect ed. The trotting, running and pacing races will be exciting and diversified by a special programme of amuse ments in front of the grand stand, given bet.veer the heats. The rail road companies have granted liberal concessions and will run excursions at a single rate of fare for the round trip. Cars run direct to the grounds. Read ing is one of the most attractive cities to visit, and is at its best during "the week of county fair. Pumpkin, Pumpkin- Pumpkin.

Their scheme was an old one modern ized and made attractive with glory borrowed from the Philippine cam paign. A month ago they hired a negro who was ready for an ample consideration to live in a cage and eat raw meat twice a day. He was painted, his hair dressed and himself undressed until he looked like the young showmen imag ined a Filipino on the wsrpath might resemble. He was confined in a strong cage and the show was com plete. The two fakirs, dressed in Tenth regiment uniforms, took him to the fairs and there exhibited him as a wild man from Manila, captured after a desperate enccunter by the Tenth regiment and brought to this country at great expense. They posed as members of the Tenth regiment and were the heroes of the capture. At stated intervals the wild man ate small bits of uncooked beef which he chewed from a huge soup bone. Ten cents was the admission fee and the cash rolled in rapidly. The wild man roared and the farmers were satisfied. Prnuty la llluod IH-vrt. Clean lilcxul mciins a cluiin nkirt.

Under the prevailing educational methods, remarks an exchange, when "the schoolmaster is abroad" he too frequently leaves his spell ing books at home. At Towanda, recently, on an examination of law students in the English branches, seven failed to pass, five of whom were rejected for defective ortho graphy. Some of them were gradu ates of high schools. At a previous examination, three high school graduates missed 50 per cent, of the words to be spelled.
