The New York policemen are not looking for Christmas present this year. An Indian In Madera, California, has established a bad precedent by killing a doctor who agreed to cure hl wife and did not do so, biH. who yet col lected his fee took the man's horse tor professional servloee. The extraordinary turn In the foreign emigration movement Is strikingly ex hibited by the fact that the Cunard Steamship company so far this year bas brought 18,680 steerage passengers Into the United States and taken out 19,245. Edward Dudley Duncan, of Washing ton county, Tennessee, has been elected a member of the Tennessee legislature, end the railroads have supplied him with passes to and from the State cap ital. But Mr. Duncan, resolved to be under obligations to no railroad, has decided to walk from his home to Nashville, a distance of three hundred miles. He has already started, and expects to arrive In time for the first rollcall, on January 7. Several associations of ministers In Washington and Oregon have protest ed against the raising of hops and bar ley, because those products are used In the manufacture of intoxicating drinks. It is now stated that a very large acre age in Washington at present devoted to hops will most likely be put to other use next year. Because of the success of experiments tobacco will be grown on the land in future. The ministers have not yet been heard from. . L6 the poor Indian. Some of the Creek Indians are immensely rich, said ex-Senator Dawes in his recent remarks before a Senate committee. "Why," said he, "one of them owns the United States court house, and rents it to this government; he owns the house the judge lives in, and rents it to him; he himself lives in a much finer house than I do; he owns- a large stud of Kentucky thoroughbreds, and took me out driving behind as fine a pair of these animals as can be found in the country." The total consumption of cotton in the world Is 12,000,000 bales a year. Of this amount 9,000,000 bales are produced in the United States, and 3,000,000 bales one-fourth of the world's consump tion is produced in Texas. The enor anouB eupply is the cause of the low price. And yet, with a calamity howl in their mouths about five-cent- cot ton, the planters are preparing to put in bigger crops next year than ever. iWith a crop of 10,000,000 bales In the United States three-cent cotton will not be far away. An embarrassing surprise awaits any Unwary bonk robber whomay drop in any of tine banks of Russell, Kansas. There iav been eeveral daring hold-ups of cashiers in that neighborhood lately, end the citizens have clubbed together to protect their wealth on deposit in the local banks. The floor of each bank 1b studded with electric push buttons, any one of which will set a core or more gongs a-ringlng on the Btreeta and in public places, and a Bouble-barreted shotgun has been placed in a handy spot In every promi nent store. Should a would-be robber poke a gun In at the cash window the cashier will simply put up his hands, step on the button and the citizens will flo the rest. ' The other day the people of Logan county. West Virginia, held a grand barbecue to celebrate the division of the county. Tables were spread' in the street and all traffic was suspended. Hundreds of stalwart mountaineers came in with their wives and children ifrom the region roundabout Eight big black bears had been shot within ft mile or two of the town, and their carcasses, served in , barbecue style, were the piece da resistance of the feast The bears were flanked and surrounded witlb roasted and baked 'possums, wild turkeys, pheasants, quail, rabbits and all sorts of domestic ifowla. Potatoes by the barrel were roasted, and pumpkin pies by the hun dred lined the tables. Hard cider was tha beverage. "Devil Anse" Hatfield, the noted loader pt the Hatfleld-McOoy vetJetta, was master of ceremonies, IU stood at the head of the taiblo with half-open valise, from which, the butts of three big revolvers protruded. Though there Is g-enerous prtoe set upon "Devil A use's" head, It Is said there was not a disturbing word spoken, and that iho barbecue was sv great success. Tho popular satisfaction with the presiding officer largely grew out of the fact tlwU there are over s, score of graves on the adjacent hillsides testifying to his deadly skill with those pistols. "IHttUk.lt Vt." At last, and yesterday, what many have been looking for In the proceed ings of the Lexow Investigating com mittee made Its appearance. The great name of Byrnes cropped out and In the same criminal connection In which so many other more or less great names have appeared. This Is not surprising. A system like that which has been In operation In New York Is a comprehensive one, and It Is evident that no man who did not take part In It could hope to amount to much as a member of the police force of New York. It Is now directly stated that when Byrnes was a captain he wns a part of the system, and the ques tion will Immediately arise, did he sep arate himself from It when he became superintendent? We are going "higher up," tautology Ically remarked Mr. Goft the other day, and he has amply fulfilled his promise. The Indications are that there Is an other step or two higher up and lower down that should be taken. QVF.LR VOl SOS. There are queer people in this world. It appears that some of those who have the Inestimable privilege of living In Massachusetts and thus being under the influence of Boston are actually anxious to 'have the territory on which they live annexed to Rhode Island. These preposterous people have gone so far as to prepare bills providing for the change to be put before the legislatures of the two States. They live In Attle boro and they want to live In Paw tucket. Their claim is that if annexed to Pawtucket they can enjoy ttie privi leges of streets, street lights, schools, water, police and fire protection, etc., which they are now dented by being so far away from the thickly settled portion of Attleboro. So much in earnest are they that they have held meeetlngs, appointed a committee to take charge of the matter, employed counsel, and raised the money with which to pay a civil engineer to survey the territory and lay out the proposed line. While some of the citizens of Attle boro are thus desiring and planning to enlarge Rhode Island the authorities of Pawtucket are interested in another annexation scheme. Recently the Dag gett farm was given to Pawtucket for park purposes. The eastern line of this farm is either on the State line or over It, and it would be difficult to preserve order, or to enforce the city ordinances, at a location so near the borders of another State. Pawtucket, therefore, seeks to acquire whatever part of the Daggett farm the surveyors may de termine to be in Massachusetts. The people of Massachusetts who still take pride in the old Bay State will do well to keep their eyes open. With a tendency among Massachusetts people to join Rhode Island and a tendency in Rhode Island to annex Massachusetts there is no telling what may happen. How curious it Is that Rhode Island should start to grow at this time in its life. Some enterprising dime museum manager ought to get hold of the phenomenal dwarf. SOME CHUUHlSd FACTS. A table published by Dun's Mercan tile Agency confirms the general impres sion that "the times" are not quite as hard as they have been. This table shows the aggregate earnings of the working men in a large number of establish ments In this country during November of this year as compared with the sums paid for labor in the same establishments during the corresponding months dur ing the preceding two years. The sub stance of the information given by these figures is that, though there is a de crease of 18.3 per cent, in the total pay ments to labor this year as compared with. 1892, there Is an increase of 16.2 per cent, over last year. They show aggregate payments of about $8,200,000 per month in 1894 against $7,200,000 in 1893 and $10,200,000 In 1892. They also show the number of hands employed In 1891 to be 10 per cent larger than in 1893, but 9 per cent, smaller than In 1892. These returns, it should be added, cover establishments' employing more than 250,000 hands. It appears that the average sum per hand paid for the month to the employes in all the establishments covered was $33.08 In 1894, $31.66 In 1893 and $37.05 in 1892.- In other words, the average pay ments this year were 89.28 per cent., and last year 85.47 per cent of the aver age two years ago,' Thus, though the average is nearly 11 per cent less this year than it was in 1892, last year it was overall per cent, less than In 1892, which means that the average earnings this year were 4.5 per cent greater than last year. The most notable' im provement was In the woolen mills, the average November payments in such establishments of that class as have sent la reports being $26.15 this year as compared with 119.48 In 189J. In the cot ton mills the Increase has been only from $24.01 to $24.68; but In all textile mills the average payments this year $25.08 were $2.74 mors than last year, though still $2.6$ less than in 1893. In fact, notwithstanding the large Increase of $6.70 In the average in woolen mills, that average was still $2.66 less than It was two years before. In boots and hoes, on the other hand, there was a den-ease In the average from $36.94 last year to $33.69 this year, but In the Iron business there was an Increase In the sumo time from $32.00 to $35.47. It Is cheering to have this proof of an Improvement In the situation. The pro cess of recovery from such a collapse as there has been Is slow, but by and by people will be overdoing business again and in their haste to be rich will again fall Into a snare. rAsuws sorts. At Ones Proteotlns and Displaying. Pea jackets and reefers are much worn for cold weather on the street A fine quality of pilot cloth Is the most suitable material and the black rubber buttons, like hose on men's clothes are used. In more dressy outside garments velvet Is used a great deal. While black Is the favorite hue, green Is chosen for some handsome models, which are then trimmed with furs and laces. For ex ample, a green velvet cloak, lined with black astrakan, has a short over cape of astrakan Inlaid with ermine and edged with rich lace. An even hand somer coat was of black velvet faced deeply with ermine. The garment could be worn buttoned up close, the collar turned up about the ears and the mer est trace of the ermine showing at the edge. This made the change more bril liant and startling when the coat was unbuttoned and turned widely back. For wear with it there was an enor mous hat of black velvet, with a bunch of white ostrich plumes on one side and a bundle of ermine heads on the other. The feathers were held In place by a magnificent rhinestone buckle, and from the bundle of heads several tails stood upright The average fur animal is subject to much anatomical telescop ing in this manner. The garment that the artist choos es for the accompanying illustration is a cape to accompany half mourning, and is made of lustreless black sicil- lenne with a gored yoke covered by dull jetted lace and bordered with a ribbon ruchlng. The latter extends down the front and around the bottom, as does a lace frill. The cape Itself is also em broidered with dull jet and the Medici collar is ornamented on the outside with boxpleated lace. In front two long tabs begin at the yoke and extend for some distance below the waist. They, too, are embroidered and edged with box pleated ruching. At the neck there is a large bow of black satin ribbon with long ends. FLORETTE. IF. She And what would you be now, if ft weren't for my money? He A bach elor. Pall Mall Budget.

Fed by Machinery and Kept From Emor. cl.lng, Their ingestion Woes the Rest. From the Baltimore Bun.) There is a poultry-raising establish ment In Baltimore county at which all the modern appliances for hatching and rearing chickens are In practical operation, and where the "stuffing" process of feeding, known for many years In France as engraltsement. Is used in fattening both chickens and ducks for the market About 6,000 chickens and as many ducks are an nually fattened by this process at this place. The owner of this establishment Is an American who has spent many years abroad, especially In France, and he has made a thorough study of the meth ods followed In the land where gastron omy has been reduced to a science and where thelnner man is more assiduously considered than anywhere else In the world. And It Is because years of ex perimenting In France have proved that poultry fed by the process de l'en gralssement are more toothsome and less expensive to the grower than poul try fattened by the ordinary processes of nature that he has established this place In Baltimore county upon on al most French basis. Incubators are by no means the cur iosities they were a few years ago, when the public paid an admission fee for the privilege of seeing one in operation. Many farmers have Improved on the old-time more or less careless methods of raising chicks or ducklings, but there is no other place In Maryland where the "stuffing" process Is In vogue with I all its modern, humane, and economloal appliances. The process Is based upon the simple principle that a fowl will grow fat most rapidly when it Is given the maximum of food and allowed the minimum of exercise. Fowls fed by "1'engraissement" are not only given all the food they can eat but all they can hold, and they are not given any exer cise. When the work of feeding fowls In this manner Is being put in practice which is not the case at this season of the year the interior of the feeding-house is an Interesting place. It looks like a large prison on a small scale, with tier upon tier of tiny cells reaching from 'the floor to the celling. In each of these cells Is a bird being prepared for market Its quarters are rather confining, for it hasn't room to turn around in and scarcely room to rise to its feet. " Running along In front of these cag es, which fit their occupants as If they had been made to order, Is a trolley track, high up near the celling, and from this is suspended the feeding ap paratus proper. It may, by means of weights, be put at any height and may be moved alor.g the trolley track from one end of the building to the other, thus enabling the feeder to put his ma chine in front of any cell he may wish. The feed, in the form of soft mush, is put in a reservoir holding a gallon or more. From the bottom of the res ervoir the food runs through a rubber tube Into another receptacle, the capac ity of which is regulated by a screw, according to the extent of the meal to be given to the fowls at that special feeding. From the second receptacle protrudes a tin tube about four Inches long and as thick as a lead pencil, and thia tube is thrust down the fowl's throat and into its craw. This done the pressure of a lever empties the contents of the receptacle into the fowl and it settles down to rest, digest, and grow fat until meal time rolls around again. The fowls do not take kindly to this method of feeding at first but after a day or two of it they seem to relish Its novelty and luxury and begin to crow and cackle In anticipation as soon as the feeding apparatus Is brought Into use. , The French breeds of poultry, notably Houdan, La Fleche, and Crevecoeurs, J are best adopted to this kind of feed ing, probably because they have been accustomed to it a long time. At the Baltimore county establishment all va rieties of chickens are being used, al though next year the owner intends to use nothing but ' Houdans.' He is at present fattening Pekin ducks only. Chickens for broiling purposes are put into the pens at the beginning of January and remain for two weeks, while ducks are kept there three weeks. The bottoms of the pens are covered with finely cut chaff which is changed every day, and, during the fattening operations the fowls are kept at an In variable temperature and In semi-darkness. They are fed four time a day. Each meal lasts about two seconds, and in eight seconds they eat more than they could in two days wtth the appa ratus which nature gives them. . - L'engraissement has been practised in France for many years. ; Before the Improved appliances were Invented the operation was carried on . In several ways. One of these, called engralsse ment aux patons, consisted of Inserting little cakes of dough Into the fowl's mouth, and forcing them down with the finger. In another case, engralssement d l'entonnolr, the food, In liquid form, was poured Into the bird through a fun nel. A third method, still more primi tive, called gavage d la bouche, consist ed In the feeder's' filling his mouth with food and blowing it down the fowl's throat.. i . r .: As soon after hatching as they 'are able to determine, the sexes are sepa rated, and when they are three and one half months old they are put In the "pens of plenty." Fowls thus treated have been knows to double their weight during their confinement In the pens. Their meat Is far tenderer and sweeter than that of fowls raised In the ordinary manner, and Is devoid of all objection able strlnglness. They are, the owner of the Baltimore county establishment avers, more suitable for table purposes than capons,, and do not have to be fed and cared for more' than a quarter of the time that capons require. Thlt Is lank (tory, From the Journal of the Uombiy Natural History Society. In the month of July some four or five years ago I was out shooting florl- can with a friend of mine Id Ouzerat We had bad fairly good luck, and as we were making our way to the railway station to catch the early train back to Ahmedabad I noticed my friend who was shooting In line on my left sud denly point his gun at something on the ground and fire, and on asking what It was be said It was a large block cobra, and that he had shot W In two pieces, the head portion disappearing down a hole. As we were In a hurry to catch the train we went on, but very soon heard one of the beaters calling out and rooking back saw him running to ward ui with the head portion of the snake following him with the hood ex panded. It appeared that he had re mained behind trying- to dig out the cobra, and the result was that it came out of the hole and went for him. Of course the snake could not get much pace on and was quickly killed. A VMfal Python. From "Three Years with LobenguU." Once, while passing through a Dutch farm, I went up to the house to buy some eggs; standing- In front of the door was a large barrel, and while passing I carelessly lifted It up to see what was inside, but promptly let It down again, as there was a big python underneath. The Dutchman told me he had shot at the snake some months previously, and a few grains entering the head, the reptile appeared to be come stupefied and unable to move qulckly. He then dragged It home, and extracted the fangs, and It grad ually became tame. The python, which measured sixteen feet, was al lowed to crawl about the place at night never attempting to get away or do any damage; In fact, they found it useful for killing rats and vermin. By day it was kept under the barrel1. The children fed the snake and played with It I saw one of the little Dutch boys drag it out and pour two bottles of milk down its throat, and then gave.lt six eggs, which It swallowed. When they teased the python it made a hiss ing noise and reared up on lta tall; they were not a bit frightened, and would catch hold of It by the head and drag it along the ground over their shoulders.
