Dr. Parkhurst doesn't want to go Into politics, and will therefore not be a candidate for mayor of New York. .Wise man. It is estimated that the recent fires In Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan have destroyed about J30,000,000 worth of property. The King's Daughters' circle In San Francisco is composed of eight Chinese women, two Japanese, two Syrians and two Americans. A court in Toledo, Ohio, has appointed three women to act as appraisers of a decedent's estate, probably the first time women have been thus officially recognized. The estate is that of a .woman. Some time ago a lot of pennies was re ceived at the treasury department for redemption. Among them was a coin which was rejected. The treasury would not give a cent for it. A clerk in the office redeemed it and gave it to Congressman Johnson, of North Dakota, who sent it to the Smithsonian for identification, and later he re ceived word that the coin is of the mintage of the year 284 A. D., and cir culated in the time of Emperor Dio cletian. It is a very valuable relic, worth many times its weight in gold. It is said in connection with the pro ject of the water supply of Jerusalem that 2,500 cubic meters of water will be mipplied daily to the town; 1,000 of these will be distributed free of charge to the poor of the town at the Mosque of Omar, the holy sepulcber and other places of pilgrimage. The new water conduits will be joined to the ancient nqueduct of Arob and will cross a covered passage 3,750 meters In length. They will be laid along the Bethlehem road and penetrate Jerusalem by the gate of David. The total outlay in con jieclon with the works is estimated at 80,000 Turkish lairs. , In a recent sermon the Rev.E.C.Aked, of Liverpool, England, declared that slavery exists in England."Think of St. Helen's in Lancashire," he said, "and the condition of the chemical laborers there. There, engaged in the very foulest work, men labor one hundred and twelve hours one week, and fifty ix hours the next, or one hundred and Bixty-eight hours in the fortnight, or an average of twelve hours a day all the year round, scarred and burned by the flying particles of caustic; their teeth destroyed by acids, and their internal organs, as revealed by post mortem ex amination, blackened by the vapors. These men drink, and so would you drink madly until death released you from your sufferings." At the recent John Brown celebra tion at Osawatomie, Kansas, the fol lowing passage from a letter written by Brown to his sister from the Charleston, Virginia, Jail, on November 27, 1859, was read: "Oh, my friend, can you deem it possible that that scaffold has . no terrors for your poor old unworthy brother? I thank God. through Jesus Christ my Lord, it is even so. I am now Ehedding tears, but they are not tears of grief or sorrow; I trust I am nearly done with those. I am weeping with joy and gratitude I can in no other way express. ... I am waiting cheer fully the days of my appointed time, fully believing that for me now to die will be to me of infinite gain and of un told benefit to the cause we love." The cotton crop, according to the Financial Chronicle's annual review, will this year reach 7,527,211 bales against 6,717,142 bales last year, and 9,038,707 in 1892. Exports of cotton have been for the year to September 1, 6,231, 494 bales against4, 402,890 last season.and 6,864,921 two years ago. Cotton con sumption has of course been restricted In the United States by the business de pressionthe number of bales worked up being placed at 2,830,000 against 8, 189,000 the year before and 3,220,000 two year ago; but consumption in Great .Britain increased from 3,644,000 bales for the season of 1893 to 4,100,000 the past season, and on the continent ot Europe from 4,6000,009 to 4.T14.000 bales. Prices of low middling upland cotton at New York ar. now I 1-16 cents against 1 cents is pound a year ago snd S 11-19 cents two years ago. A noticeable fact Is that ths spinning ca pacity of southern mills have continued to Increase snd they hsvs been much better employed than the 'northern mills, although It Is said that the mills have paid but very small profits. AO CHASQK. There have been rumors that General Merwln, having become convinced that be could not be nominated, would with draw from further participation In a contest that has become somewhat warm and disagreeable. Of course there was no foundation for such rumors and General Merwln now disposes of them by formally declaring; that he is In to stay until the convention dis poses of his case. He did all his with drawing some time sgo. He will do no more, and he wishes he hadn't done that He has been accused of not hav ing enough mucilage In his makeup, but he will convince his accusers that he has enough to stick to this contest until It Is ended. It Is probable, too, that he Is encouraged to stick by the reports that have been brought In to him by his faithful henchmen, who have been travelling all over the State In various Ingenious disguises. If these henchmen do not greatly differ from the rest of their kind they have reported to him that he will be sur prised by the showing he will make on the first ballot, and with first, second and third choices they can figure out enough to nominate him. They have clearly explained to him how neither Coffin, Cheney, Porter nor Marigold can possibly get there, and of course If they can't he can. If he doesn't happen to they will also be able to clearly show why he didn't As there is no change in General Merwin's determination to be a can didate so there Is no change in the facts that are against his candidacy. He la not In the field fairly. He has allowed his deBlre for office to overcome his sense of obligation to those who, relying on his public and private state ments, became candidates. He has al lowed his desire for office to so obscure his perception that he cannot see the evidences of "that tired feeling" which prevails among many of those who have voted for him with frequency and persistency, and who are no longer eager to vote for him. They do not feel that he needs a vindication. Rather do they feel that they themselves need a vindication, and a chance to show what they can do in a new field of political enterprise. They resent the idea that their efforts in behalf of General Merwin must not cease until he is laid in the silent tomb or seated In the governor's chair, and they do not wish to be laid in the silent tomb them selves without having a chance to vote for a new man. Probably they are all wrong in this, but human nature is human nature now as it was in the days when the human nature of the Athenians showed itself in their repre hensible use of oyster shells against Aristides. And human nature must be considered by those who want to suc ceed in politics. The Democratic organs appear to want General Merwln nominated. Their attitude Is, of course, based on their sincere solicitude for the welfare of the Republican party. They consider him the strongest candidate that the Republicans can put up, and we shouldn't be surprised to see them ad vising their readers to vote for him If he is nominated. The Register has al ready paved the way for such action by its exhibition of local pride. JtUM IN OAKE8DALB. Washington is a new member of the sisterhood of States, but It is evident that some of the inhabitants have noth ing to learn In political trickery from those who live in older States. Oakes dale, Washington.had a mayor and five councilmen, and it was believed that with that mayor and those five coun cilmen no rum would be legally sold in the town, which had no ordinance pro viding for the granting of licenses. The single saloon keeper who sold liquor over his bar in spite of the opposition of the temperance people had often offered to pay for the privilege.but they refused to countenance the liquor traf fic in any form. This position was sup ported by the common council, which consisted of five members, three of whom were ardent anti-license men. The other evening there was a meeting of the council that will be long remem bered by the people of Oakesdale. After routine business had been disposed of, the mayor tendered his resignation, "as business demands would prevent him from giving due attention to the affairs of the city." The resignation was ac. cepted, and the name of a popular cit izen was proposed for the vacancy. He declined the honor to the surprise of everybody but those In the secret, and suggested an anti-license member of the council as the Ideal man for the place. The latter was nothing loath, and his brother oouncllmen elected him mayor. This left the council a tie on the question of license. The name of a merchant supposed to belong to the temperance faction was brought . for ward, and. he was chosen councilman without opposition: 'After he had been sworn la one of the license members offered a resolution that whn the council met the folowlng week It should be for the purpose of regulating the sale of liquor In Oakesdale. To the conster nation of the old ntl-llcenae members, the new councilman voted In the affir mative. The town has now not only one but several 5 loons, and the prohl bitlonlats sre I el pies. ' Great Is the power of rum. Antuinn. Thou burden of all sonss In earth hath minu, Thrni rotriMpoet In Time' reverted eyes, Thiiu imthnplmr of everything tbnt dies.

William Watson, TASBIOX KOTES. What to Wheel In. Women blcycllBts are now so many that a girl on wheels excites no com ment unless he is dressed in a startling way. In the absence of an accepted costume for this exercise, there is dan ger of attracting attention by wearing some of the models, but it isn't on the wheel that she looks queer in her divi ded skirt or kntcks, but it is when she Is off. As a result the correct girl has a groom in attendance. He carries a stunning top ulster rolled and attached to the handle of his wheel. When his charge, whose papa Is ,of course, able to afford all this, wants to dismount, she signals her groom and off he gets first several yards ahead of his mis tress. She stops when she reaches him, and as she dismounts puts herself Into the top cloak he hold ready. But when she takes a header and stands in the dust on the top of her stylish cap with her little toes waving in the air, she does not wait to put on the top coat first. She then- behaves Just as anyone would and takes no more time about it. The costume pictured here Is extreme ly well suited to its use as far as con venience is concerned! as to the display It makes, there'll be no two minds alike. The majority will decide that it is all right while the wearer is riding; when she dismounts It is a simple matter to don some cover-all garment which she could carry rolled on her handle bar. As sketched this dress is of gray mixed goods with its ample divided skirts laid in deep pleats at the waist and met half way down by a pair of leg gings. The blouse waist Is fitted at the top, but is a trifle fuller at the waist. It buttons on one side. A ribbon belt ends In a wide buckle, and the plain gigot sleeves and standing collar finish the trim bodice, which is lined with silk or with chamois leather fof cool fall and early winter days.

TUB TVMI'KMISK H OODS. The ftreat Inrfartry of North Carolina. (From the rblladrlphla Times.) A day's. work for a good steady hand Is to cut one hundred boxes In the tur pentine woods. What Is called a "crop" for one man to work during a season consists of ten thousand boxes. These boxes are ovul, or V-shaped, cav ities, cut Into the tree about six Inches deep, narrowing as they extend back: each box of a size to contain a quart of the "gum," which oozes down from the tree above. The boxes are cut In the trees In January and February, as low down toward the base of the trunk as Is convenient for a man to .fashion them. They are of uniform size, and as many of them can be made la a tree as the circumference of the trunk' will allow, or (In the event of the turpen tine man not owning the land) as was contracted for when the pines were leased from their owner. Boxes are placed two or three inches apart, the bark on the -Intervening spaces being left Intact, in order to preserve the life and health of the tree. The next work after the boxes are made Is to "corner" them that is, to go round with an axe and make an Incision lead ing into both upper corners of the box, to guide the down-dripping sap Into the cunning receptacle arranged to catch It. The boxes being prepared before the sap turns up In the trees in the spring, as soon as that subtle process of nature takes place the full veins of the pines begin to exude and fill the saucer-like hollows waiting for the treasure. The first filling Is called the "virgin" sap, and the rosin obtained from these boxes Is of far more value than any subse quently made. The man who Is work ing the crop now goes around to his boxes and . "hacks" them with a dell- cately-curved, sharp-edged instrument, used only for that purpose. He does not strike deep, but only punctures the already bleeding trunk with sufficient force to cause it to bleed afresh. Going over his enUre territory, he repeats his hacking' process In a regular, me thodical manner every two or three weeks, causing the liberal sap to flow profusely into the always-filling, al- ways-emptyjng boxes. This hacking. process is continued, with appropriate intervals, until September, or until the sap in the trees begin to go down at the approach of winter. The hacker Is chosen with regard to his judgment and must exercise a del icate discrimination In executing his work and have a thorough knowledge of the nature of the trees with which he deals. The province of the "dip per," who follows -behind the hacker to relieve the boxes of their shining, trans parent, sticky fluid, is not charged with quite so much responsibility, and, though his work is aggravating, trying and difficult in the extreme, he is not paid nearly as much as his predecessor. Wagon loads of empty barrels are dis tributed through the woods as near or as far apart as it is deemed necessary, and into these the pains-taking "dip per" contrives, by means of a metal spoon-like implement closely resem bling a trowel, and a handy, wide mouthed bucket, to pour or push the collected contents of the various boxes. Experts are able to Judge very nearly the amount of raw gum to be obtained from a certain number of trees, but the ever-vigilant "rider" makes the rounds to see that his employer is not defraud ed and to encourage the men to active endeavor. Careful owners of valuable timber land have the pine straw raked away from the roots of the trees previ ous to commencing operations for. tur-. nentlne makine. Then, on some auspi cious night, when there is no wind and perhaps a suspicion of aampness in tne air, they burn these heaps of straw and accumulations of burrs, sticks and un derbrush. Two or three hundred acres of heavy timbered land on fire the tall, dark columns of the pines outlined against the blazing glare, the flames leaping and crackling in exultant glee Is a' weird spectacle likely to arouse interest, admiration and wonder in the breast of the beholder. Those- who rent their trees do not take this pre caution, which is a.t. once tedious and expensive, and sometimes disastrous fires, destructive alike to lire ana bus iness, ensue in consequence. Nearly all woods in which the turpentine agents have been at work seem to suo cumb to the fire fiend eventually, being such tempting targets for the . eager sparks flying upward from some chance wayfarer's fire, kindled in all Innocence of working mischief. The same crop of trees can be worked for a number of years, usually from four to six seasons, when the white ridges produced ty ne hackers extend as high up on the tree trunks as a tall man can reach. But those whose pur pose Is only to 'extort- as much' sap from the pine as possible not Intending to utilize the tree afterward for other purposes, hack the long-suffering trunk as high as an ordinary house, affixing the hacking Instruments .to long poles to execute their task at a great height from the ground. A great deal Of tur pentine is still mad In South Carolina, to which state the tar heelers made their way from the pioneer turpentine ground of her twin sister. But Florlc da, southwestern Georgia and Alaba ma are now the Mecca of the turpen tine distillers, those states possessing vast areas of yet Unbroken forests; When ground formerly planted but left unused for years produces a fresn growth of pines they grow to a greaj neight and are vigorous ana strong; bat their hearts are not In proportion fo their size, and-they will' not yield. much rosin or tth-ptentlne, though some, times used for that Purpose, ;'01d 4 plnea" they ar termed, and ar distin guished from the first original growth of woods by tbe shortness of their noo dles snd the number of srms they put out comparatively near the ground, tbe older pines rising to a great height un til they overlook all the surrounding tree before they braneb out at all. Tb virgin forests that have been worked twenty year will produce a fresh growth of pines suitable for all tne purposes ot the distiller. After the sap has turned down the hacked sur face of the turpentine trees Is left crusted with gum, and the "scraper" must go around snd scrape It oft, for It sit can be utilised, though this last product of the season will yield only Its proportion of turpentine. The rosin It makes Is not fit for anything unless to make the fires so much needed about the still. When the barrels full of the product of trees are carried to the still they are emptied Into a deep copper vat and their contents subjected to the mysterious power of heat The top of the vat or boiler Is fitted with a cap, rendering It alr-tlght, but a sort of funnel connects It with a worm," which runs down Into anoth er large tub or vat. It Is the "spirit," the life, the essence of the living pine which thus ascends In the form of va por through the top of the boiling vat, and. Instead of escaping Into the outer air, is arrested and Induced to go down again Into ths second vat where men may capture It. There, floating on the toy of the watery fluid, which the cool ing vapor has now become, Is the "spirits of turpentine," to be seen dis tinctly separate from the water all about It, In the proportion of two thirds water and one-third spirit. It Is then ready to. be barreled up for market. Now a new difficulty presents Itslf. This spirit or essence Is so In stinct with life that an ordinary vessel cannot contain it It will find Its way out In spite of all ordinary precautions such as serve to encase other liquids. Extra strong barrels of white northern pine must be pressed Into service to bold this unruly treasure, and two and even three coatings of tbe best glue to be procured must line the Inside of each barrel before the turpentine can be trusted to Its keeping. Quarts of glue, heated, are poured Into the wait ing barrels, run round so that every portion of the Inside may be touched. and then the residue poured out again, not to be used until the first coat Is thoroughly dry. The contents of the vat from whtcn the turpentine has been distilled Is main Thin la discharged into a great sifter or strainer, from which It falls into a yet finer separator, passing again through a third, during which Drocess it has lost all the coarser in gredients which composed it, and Is ready to be stowed away tn DarreiB ror shipment barrels, the staves of which are fashioned right on the spot, and do not have to be imported like those used tor the more delicate and precious tur pentine. This resin or rosin Is most useful In the ordinary demands of life. The musician draws a piece of rosin across the bow of his Instrument. An oil made from It Is prized by painters and used for lubricating machinery, etc.. and no kind of soap, from the deli cately perfumed, dainty toilet article, to the Indifferent commodity passing under that name, prepared by the old "feaumert" on thS plantation, Is com plete without Its due proportion of rosin: riot to mention the important part the various products of the bill play in the building, rigging and sail ing of a ship. Tar is commonly made in the south by simply arranging an earthly covering over fat lightwood and contriving the heat from within In such a manner that the drops ot fat inflammable substance will exude through this other covering. Lamp black is made from the boards in which they bury their dead, crude tar for making cotton bales, boxes, etc., and the negroes use It for staining into sol emn blackness the home-made coffins, made of odd pieces of boards in wmcn they , bury their dead. A land owner renting his land to the distillers usual ly charges about ten dollars per one hundred trees for each season, accord ing to the number of boxes he allows cut in each tree. It takes about twenty-live barrels of turpentine. A hacker usually is paid about twenty dollars per month, the dipper and other neces sary hands much less. Men who make turpentine distilling a business, and their only business, move about from one territory to an other,; owing to the location In which they can (secure trees, and the transito ry existence seems to have a somewhat demoralizing effect on their employes, who have earned, whether they deserve it or not, a hard name through , the country generally. Rude shanties are built for the workmen and their fami lies, and moderately comfortable sta bles are erected tor the mules and horses that must be taken care of at any edst A level country, without any swamps, nor yet diversified with hills, is considered the most promising for turpentine ' workers. With them, as with farmers, stock raisers, etc., the seasons mean good or bad fortune, ac cording to the. amount of rain, drouth, etc., as both the quantity and quality of their production is affected by weath er.
