An appeal hits been taken to the pope ami lie decides that the eliTRy may tide wheels In the serv ice of the church, especially wlvn callaJ upon in Htnerscniies. The senate tries to be as comfort able as possible.- Jt uses twenty-three gallons of tho tincst cologne every year, and tluriiif? the heated term the sena tors drink forty e;ises of apolllnaris o,uarts, minified in water with the Juice of thirty-live boxes of lemons and 1,200 pounds of sugriir, to which 10,000 pounds of ice is put. It takes 100,000 pounds of ice a month and four palm Jeaf fans per man to keep them cool, and 330 persons to wait upon the eighty eight eminent senators. It is seriously said that there is in wicked Chicago an establishment which deals exclusively in staleu bicycles, and that bicycle-stealing has become a live ly business in some parts of the coun-. try. Ordinarily a bicycle can easily be identified, but the thieves have a way of removing numbers and manu facturers' names and interchanging parts so as to destroy the identity of the machine. A good examp)e yfViiiftt can be done by the energy and.-intelligence of one man is shown by the work of Sir Am brose Shea, governor of the Bahamas. When he went there seven years ago the islands were in a poverty-stricken condition and the chief industry of the population of .".0,000 was sponge-fishing. He discovered that,, f he, manilla plant fjrett wild in splendid luxuriance, and in the face of opposition he developed a flourishing state by the cultivation and export of manilla fiber. The steam city railroads of London earn only $7,1,0110 a mile, while those of New York city earn $:W0,000 a mile per annum. The New York railroads carry a far larger number of passengers and run quicker and make more stops than the London roads. Tn New York it takes from 1- to 15 seconds for the peo ple to get into and out of the cars, but In London it takes about JO seconds, al though tho cars in London have s:dc doors, which are supposed to afford greater facilities for '.he ingress and outgo of passengers. The custom o bottling tears prevails In Persia. There it constitutes an im portant part of the obsequies of the dead. As the mourners are sitting round and weeping the master of cere monies presents each one with a piece of cotton wool or sponge with which to wipe away the tears. This cotton wool or sponge is then put into a bottle and the tears are preserved as a power ful and efficacious restorative for those whom every other medicine he.:-: failed to revive. It is to this custom that al lusion is made in the Tsalms: "Put thou my tears into thy bottle." I.i Hung Chang, the Bismarck of China, is s-x feet high, strongly built a:-.i muscular. His figure is erect, and lie carries hs head at a firm and modest poise. His skin is yellow and swarthy. His. eyes are dark, piercing and small, acute, intelligent nud lively. His hair Is gray, is shaven buck frcm his fore head and plaited in a queue of medium length and thickness. His teeth are i!.even and discolored by tobacco. He has a drooping gray moustache and thin .gray chin whiskers, sucli as come to Chinamen late in life. General Wilson, of the United States army, found him an amiable and hospitable gentleman, anxious to develope the internal re sources of China, to enlarge Its relations with foreign countries and to master all problems connected with government. He is a good smoker and likes cham pagne. A curious fact has been brought to public notice in England by the conduct of the Rev. John Valiancy, perpetual curate of Rosliston, who, in the Burton County court prpsgcjjjed the daughter of one of his parishioners for trespass ing in "his" churchyard and damaging "his" hay by vlsltrna her sister's grave ana placing nowers tnoreon.

Vhls arrangement will not, of course, suit everybody. No arrange ment thai could be made would. Rut It Is well enough. The campaign will be long enough, mid there is no fault to lie fairly found with Hartford as the place lor holding the convention. There Is ono other thing that ought to be done, and that n to allow the convention to really do the work It will ostensibly be called together to do. It should be allowed to pick out the candidates that will' be put before the people. There should he a full and fair discussion of tho situation before the convention meets, and what other dis cussion Is needed should be had when it meets. Rut there should be no attempt by any of those who call themselves the leaders of the party to drive or trick the convention Into ratifying any plan that may have been made in the back room or front room of some political club or In any other place. A few men should not be allowed this year to pick out the candidate for governor for purposes of their own, and with the In tent to profit by the scheme. And a few men should not be allowed to pick out the rest of the ticket so as to make their gubernatorial puppet secure. We have heard of a recent secret meeting to start a boom for one of the candi dates. If, as a result of that meeting, a boom Is started It ought to die or be killed. We think it will die or be killed. The people this year are in no humor to accept a lobby candidate. They are equally, we believe, opposed to being driven or tricked Into accepting a can didate nominated for private, personal and unpatriotically ambitious reasons. Let the convention nominate the can didate for governor this year, and hav ing done that important work let it se lect the rest of the nominees. Let it assert that those who may pose as man agers of the party are not its bosses. The Republicans of Connecticut expect to be abundantly successful this year. There is no reason why they should have their success used to put money into the pockets of the lobby or to put more power and more office into the hand of a few men who have already had far more from the Republican party than they have ever deserved or earned. It Is a good year for clean, honest, progressive Republicanism. The coming convention should see to it that its work is clean, honest and truly pa triotic. It should not do the work of the lobby, -and it should not be bossed by managers who in seeking the great est good of the greatest number make he greatest number number one. PA UT ISA'S 1'llA rixa. Non-partisan praying is thought to be the proper thing at political conven tions where any praying is doomed de sirable. It Is considered all right to ask the Lord to bless and save the country, but It is not considered all right to ask the Lord to bless nud save the country through the medium of any particular party, notwithstanding the fact that the paltform of the party and the howlers and heelers who stand on that plat form expressly declare that the coun try can be blessed and saved in no )t'ier way than by the success of tho party. So when a minister invited to pray at and for a political conven tion makes a prayer which plainly shows his hope that he who moves in a mysterious way his wonders to per form will confound the enemies of the country who belong to the party not represented at the convention, such praying is considered wanting in taste and in the true spirit of prayer. We don't certainly know why this should be so, for political parties are always the representatives of great moral ideas, and their success involves the progress of those ideas. It appears, therefore. that a minister who thoroughly be lieves In the great moral ideas of a party may be doing a natural and com mendable thing when he asks that those ideas may receive a token of divine ap proval In the shape of victory. So the Israelites were wont to pray when they; thought it necessary for them to bring: the Hivltes low, and they saw no im propriety in it. But nowadays when good Republicans meet to lay plans: to kick the stuffing out of the wicked Democrats or the good Democrats meet : to lay plans for performing the same kindly act for the wicked Republicans the prayers offered must be non-partisan. Can it be that those who ask that their political caus be prayed for are not fully persVa died' of its righteousness and that A'lose who jlo the praying are not c'r In their poinds that the party P.Kforms and tb party howlers ,and heeler mean alUhey, say? That there majf , Jack of. sincerity t.'."'' t 'J..',,:!1:,7:.?!.--.Ai' .. . '"v : ' or something somewhere Is shown by the sensation which has been cuused by the Iowa minister who prayed at the recent Republican convention In that State as follows: "But as we meet here In Joy and gladness there comes a shadow of sorrow over our thoughts when we remember the great Demo- cratle party, which has so aimlessly held on for so many years with such bulldog tenacity, Is about to retire Into Innoctiotta desuetude, to appear upon the stage of our country no more forever, and when wo stand by its open grave and hear the clods fall upon Its coffin lid may we throw the mantle of charity over Its faults, and remember It only by the good It has done, If. perchance, It has done good enough to elicit our memory. Oh Lord, give- us wisdom for the guidance of our deliberations to. day, and grant victory to the cause.' This was certainly good Republican praying, but It has been apologized for on the ground that the minister who made it was culled upon suddenly and prayed without forethought. He asked for what he wanted and not for what he thought might sound good to Demo crats, to Mugwumps, or oven to some Republicans. The incident has brought to notice the fact thflt Iowa has had other ministers who, on similar occa sions, huve prnyed out. of the abun dance of their hearts rather than out of the abundance of their caution. For instance, at another Republican State convention a minister made a prayer that was heartily cheered. After pray ing that the Republicans might have a majority of the usual 40,000 for their ticket he added: "Yea, Lord, if It please Thee, make It 80,000." And Ihe famous prayer of Elder Shlnn hpfore the lower branch of the Iowa legislature is again brought forward. It was as follows "God bless the young and growing State of Iowa, bless her senators and rep resentatives, and all those In author! ty. Give us a sound currency, pure wa ter and an undeflled religion. For Christ's sake. Amen." This hit the mark, and though it shocked those who do not believe in political praying it was generally recognized as a very forcible prayer. The effectual, fervent prayer n' the righteous avalleth much. But do reaily righteous men make partisan prayers, and if they do do such prayers avail much? Tnke Heart.

Here are the skies all burnished brightly. Here is the spent earth all reborn. Here are the tired limbs springing lightly To face the sun and to snare with the morn In the chrism of dew and the cool of dawn. Every day is a fresh beginning; Listen, tny soul, to the glad refrain.

Tho First Book in English," and "In troductory Lessons in English Gram mar," by William H. Maxwell, M. A., Superintendent of Public Instruction, Brooklyn, are the volumes of Maxwell's English course, the first being for use In primary grades, and the second for Intermediate grades. The series is com pleted with "Advanced Lessons in Eng lish Grammar." These little text books are admirably planned. The method is inductive throughout,, -all rules and definitions very clearly ex pressed, and selections are carefully chosen. If anythliig could make the study of language "delightful it would seem to be this series of beautifully printed .and generally attractive little books. Robinson's Rudiments of Arithmetic, In its various editions, has probably had a greater sale than any arithme tic of' its grade ever published. The present edition is a thorough revision with about forty pages of iew material In the line of introductory exercises. The order of subjects and the number ing of paragraphs has been preserved. so that the new edition can be used in the same classes with the old. "Laboratory Studies in "Elementary Chemistry," by Le Roy C. Cooley, Ph. D.. professor of physics and chemistry in Vassar college. This work contains very specific directions for experiments, so that the right conditions shall be se cured, leaving results to be detected by the student, and stated in his own Words. The studies are devoted to fun damental facts and principles, and win f r.rmsh satisfactory materials for use in connection with any course in ele mentary general chemistry which the teacher may choose to use. ,, "First Lessons in Our Country's 'His tory," by William Swinton, author of School History of the United States," etc. An attractive little Vol ume, the plan of which is, first, to bring out prominently the salient points of our country's hlBtory, and such only; second, to present ' these facts In as simple and interesting style as possi ble. The writer was for many years a teacher, and brought, to his work a practical Knowledge 01 ciass-room needs. The Increasing demand for his histories Is perhaps the best proof of their excellence. ' ' "Inductive Studies In, English Gram mar," by William R. Harper and Isaac B, Burgess. This little work is a mod est attempt to secure better prepara tion for the language work of the high school' by a scientific" and Hhought-ln spiring method of presenting English grammar. It is equally fdspted to the needs of those, whose, school life will, end with the grammar grade. The . present edition hae beata-Verr carefully. revised and somswhat enlarged. It will be found an admirably clear and well-arranged text book. "French Reader on the Cumulative Method," by Adolphe Dreysprlng, fh D., author of many text (books in French and German. "Itodnlple and Coco" Is a story In which the varied activities of childhood are presented In simple language, all events and casual' ties of boyhood following In rapid suc cession, and whether the boy, or his devoted friend and playmate, Coco.Hhe chlmpansee, will be most Interesting to the youthful student of French, It is hard to say. The plan of the story is progressive; It Is fully illustrated and these amusing little pictures give many a hint as to the meaning of words and phrases. The story is supplemented with foot notes, a vocabulary and grammatical references with synopti cal tables. "First Lesson In Ruadtng," by Ellxa. beth H. Fundenbcrg, Is in two editions, one being Intended for teachers. This has complete manual wherein each lesson Is developed, together witn out lines for slate and board work; also full Instructions on phonetics, rules for pro nunclatlon, spoiling, etc. The sentence or word method has been adopted as the basis of the work, and when the child has become familiar with tho printed and written forms of many words which are In his vocal vocabula ry he gradually passes to the phonic- word method, so that the power of pro. nnuncing new word-forms may be ac quired without the aid of the teacner.

In "Prince Blmarck and the Wo men," Dr. Adolph Kohut has preserved the picture which caused the only scan dal ever associated with the chancel lor's life. The picture is a photograph of Bismarck and Pauline Lucca as they were in the Austrian summer re sort Ischl twenty-nine years ago. The singer had made her name and Bis marck was supposed to be as great as a statesman well could be In those d ay's? 1 As he stebpfid from the door of the Motel one mol-nlHg he found the lit tle prima donna begging him to accom pany her to the photographer's. "But T am waiting to have my dis patches deciphered," he protested. "Let the dispatches ait," replied the slnger.and the Uspatchee waited. After Lucca had had several sittings and Bismarck two, she exclaimed. ''A magnificent idea, your excellen cy!. we--must be pnotograpnea to gether,;'' v;; ; ,.; Thus (t jame,.that Ja weekvlater the viBitei' at Iscbtl found facinsr from ever ; Jiiiop; windl; wtl$e plump features of Lneea and the rugged countenance of Prussia's minister-president. The news spread- at once from Vienna to Berlin and from Paris to St. Peters burg, that the invincible Bismarck had been entrapped by the wily Lucca. Just what Bismarck heard from home at this time will probably be carried unrevealed with him to his grave. From all his old Lutheran friends In Germany, however, he received letters of warning, regret and exhortation, which soon moved him to have the sup ply of offending pictures cut off short. "If I had foreseen for an Instant how much pain this trivial incident would cause my many true friends," he wrote to Pastor Andre in reply to a moral lecture from him. "I should have got" myself out of the . camera's- range- quickly enough." - Never again, Bis marck assured his friends, would he let his picture be taken with . woman, and he has kept his word. Most of the Lucca-Bismarck photographs were bought up and destroyed, - To-day hardly a dozen of them could be found, the world over. Some of Bismarck's friends think he will hardly be grateful to Dr. Kohut for reviving, with this picture, the only scandal that ever' touched his name. New York Sun.

While others slept, his little camp fire was burning, and often in the long vig ils of the night I have seen a tull form walking up and down by that tire. Sherman himself slept but little. He did not seem to need sleep, and I have known him to stay but two hours In bed many a night. In later years a slight asthma made such sleep Impos sible for him. After the war, when I was at his home In Kt. Louis, he sel dom retired till 12 or 1 o'clock. It was often as late, too. on this march. It was a singularly Impressive sight to see his solitary figure walking there by the flickering camp fire while the army slept. If a gun went off some where In the distance, of if an unusual noise was heard, he would Instantly call. one of us to go and find out what it meant. He paid small attention to ap pearances; to dress almost none. "There Is going to be a battle to-day sure," said Colonel Audenreld of the staff, one morning before daylight.. "How do you know," asked a com rade. "Why, don't you see? The general's up there by the fire putting on a clean collar. The sign's dead sure." A battle did take place that day, and Cheraw, with forty cannon, fell into our hands. It was more a run than a battle. From "Some Personal Recol lections of General Sherman," by S. H. M.

There is a woman inrhil adelphia who lived fof years in a daily circle of suffering, because she thought there was no relief. Her suffering was caused by female weakness in its worst forms. She had pain in her back and loins, great fatigue from walking, leucorrhaea, local inflammation, and a frequent desire to urinate. All this time relief was close at hand, and she had only to accept it with the same faith that has saved thousands of others. Every druggist had it. Lydia E.
