A* I'rlnirr, Jniiri«ull*l, Economist! mid ■■olilirlan, lie Eudmi orcd In 111) all 1 hingw Well-Though Sniut-uhul Visionary lie Was Honrs!. llcnry George was one of not a few ty|iesetters who have become famous* With the aristocracy of brawn he was an idol; with the aristocracy of wealth lie took high rank. He is best known because lie wrote " Progress and Poverty," advocating the single tax, and because lie ran for mayor of New York in 188(5, winning a great victory for organized labor, though be was not elected. The Democratic candidate was Abram S. Hewitt; the Republican, Theodore Roosevelt, and Henry George was the labor candidate. The result was: Hewitt, 90,552; George, (58,110; Roosevelt, (50,495. 11l every campaign since then, Henry George has been spoken of in some important connection. The last time his name was lip was in Albany, when Thomas C. Piatt was elected to the Senate. Senators Guy and Coffey and Assemblymen Cain and Zurn, who refused to accept David B. Hill, the Democratic caucus candidate, voted for Mr. George. In doing so. Senator Guy, the faithful Achates of Henry 1). Purroy, said: " Mr. George represents what is best and most enduring in the Democratic party—the plain, common honesty and intelligence of the great body of the people. He is not an extreme silverite, though a believer in binict alism. In the reeent campaign—the Bryan campaign—he did heroic ser vice for the Democratic cause, uniting the labor interests in the support of Bryan, thus making possible the sup erb results achieved against allied corporate interests, unlimited cam paign funds and widespread corrup tion at the polls." In the Bryan campaign, Mr. George wrote over his own signature for one of the only two newspapers in New York which supported the Chicago platform. Henry George was born on Septem ber 2,1839, in a house still standing at 312 Catherine street, Philadelphia. His fathor was a sea captain, a ship owner and a publisher of religious literature. The son went to the com mon schools until he was 12, and then entered an academy. But he wanted to go Into trade, and his father put him in a printing-house. The spirit of adventure was strong in young Geerge, however, and he soon left the printing-house for the sea, landing in California before he was 18. He set type there for a time. The Fraser river gold excitement was at its height, but before he could get to the mines the boom had sub sided. He returned from Victoria, B. C., to San Francisco in the steerage. There he did what work he could get as a printer, and got a job in a rice mill. Borrowing S2O, he made his way to San Francisco. "It was then," he relates, " that I came pretty nearly getting hungry. I slept in a stable and other places." He was saved from going to sea again by getting work as a compositor on a weekly paper, and on reaching his majority became a member of the typographi cal union. While working at the case in San Francisco, he wrote anonymous letters on public questions, which attracted attention. Dr. Gunn, editor of the San Francisco Timet, set a watch at a letter-box to learn who the author of the letters was. When be caught George, he offered him a place on the staff. The young man accepted, and worked his way up until he became managing editor. His business as editor took him to New York on a trip, and while there he was impressed with the luxury of the rich and the misery of the poor of the metropolis. His impression was the seed of " Progress and Pov erty." "My book," wrote Mr. George, " was finished about August, 1879, and I sent the manuscript copy East, ask ing a friend, Mr. Hallidie, an assoc iate director in the free public library that had been started in San Fran cisco, to see about its publication. He submitted it, but no one would touch it. My old partner, Mr. Hin ton, who had got himself a printing office, thereupon said that he had faith enough in anything I should do to make the plates, and I put the manuscript into his hands, and the first plates were printed in the fall of that year, I closely supervising it, and doing some little composition myself. I then brought it put in an author's edition, of which I sold to friends at the rate of |3 a copy enough to pay for the cost of printing. I then sent copies without binding to publishers "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips Fall "WLere they May." botli in America and England, offer ing to j>nt the plates at their disposal for printing. I received but one ac ceptance, that of Appleton <k Co., who had been previously seen by .Mr. Ilullidie. They olfercd to take it and bring it out in January, 1880. I ac ceded to this, and Appleton A Co. published the book in the following year." Kcgan Paul, of London, published a large edition, hut the hooks lay piled in the publisher's cellar until the author, as correspondent from Ireland of the Irish World, was arrested by order of the English government. After that Kcgan Paul had to run off more hooks. Mr. George followed up his success with a book called " The Irish Land Question." In 1880 Mr. George left California and reached Now York, which has ever since been his home. In 1881-8 lie wrote letters from Ireland and England to the Irish World, delivering addresses in the principle cities and towns. In 1881 an English edition of " Progress and Poverty" was issued. A fi-penny edition followed, and had an extraordinary sale, whereupon the London Times came out with a page review, saying that the book of the Californian economist, hitherto un noticed by the English press, could no longer be ignored. The supplies of the booksellers were exhausted in a single day, and the entire world sonn became acquainted with "Progress and Poverty." Mr. George continued to write in advocacy of the land theory. Late in 1883 be received an invitation from the Land Reform Union of England again to visit that country. He was received at a great meeting in St. James' hall. Henry Labouchcrc pre sided. "Then," relates Mr. George, " I spoke in the principal towns in England, and had large audiences, al ways hostile at first; but I conquered them all easily, with the exception of that at Oxford, the seat of learning, where I sat on the stage and could not hear myself think. The Oxford students were determined to disturb the meeting, although Max Muller was my host and presided." In 1884 "Protection or Free Trade'' was written, and the manuscript lost. Then it had to be written all over again. In the same year, at the invi tation of the Scottish Land Restora tion League, Mr. George made the third trip abroad, addressing great audiences throughout Scotland. " All the landlords were hostile, but the poor people and workers everywhere turned out to hear my lectures." Meautime, " Progress and Poverty" was being read by the labor leaders of America, and when the New York mayoralty campaign of 1886 opened, they were ready to accept him, and no other, as their candidate. The campaign was one of the most exciting in the history of New York. The Rev. Dr. McGlynn took the stump for him, and disobeyed Arch bishop Corrigan, who ordered him to confine himself to his duties as pastor of St. Stephen's church, at 149 East Twenth-eighth street. Dr. McGlynn was excommunicated, practically, and a long controversy among the leading Catholics of America followed, which was settled only when Archbishop Sa tolli was sent to America as the apos tolic delegate. Dr. McGlynn was re stored to the church, and was sent to a pastorate in Newburg. After the campaign of 1896, Mr. George started the Standard as a vehicle for the spread of his ideas. He stood for the single-tax idea, for free trade, for Bryanism, at least in its salient features; for the sale of public franchises at auction, and for opposi tion to corporate power. When he was editor of the Sacramento Reporter, he opposed the corporations so vigorously that they bought a con trolling interest in the paper in order to get him out of the editorial chair. When the tariff question became a political issue, Mr. George, as a free trader supported Mr. Cleveland, ad vocating his re-election in 1888 and 1892. His political and economic ideas, known as " the Bingle-tax," have a large and growing support, not con fined to this country. Besides much miscellaneous writing to their advocacy, he has also publish ed : " The Land Question" (1881); " Social Problems" (1884; " Protection or Free Trade" (1886); "The Condi tion of Labor, an Open Letter to Pope Leo XIII" (1891); "A perplexed Philosopher," an arraignment of Herbert Spencer and his theories (1892). He was a prominent member of the Reform Club in New York. Henry George lived in a beautiful home, amid his books, with the wife of his youth and his children around him. His home at Fort Hamilton was always open to his friends, and was a shrine to visitors from the ends of the earth. The not infrequent dis appointment of strangers at their first meeting with the author of " Progress OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, NOV. 5, 1897. and Poverty" and the leader of the mighty propaganda for industrial and social reform was one of Mr. George's sources of amusement, for nature had given him a quick sense of humor. ' "Good heavens!" the expression of the reverent pilgrim often says, "T thought you were a great man, hut now I've seen you!" Physically, Mr. George was not an imposing personage. He was under 5 feet (5, and it was only his noble head and fine face that served him from in significance. His manner was without a trace of pose or self-consciousness. He was always himself, and his in genuousness, which is carried into politics, was first the despair and then the inspiration of his advisors. His one dissipation was a cigar. Absent mindncss had grown upon him with the years. His dress was plain and careless, and the loss of his umbrella and overcoat, and even his hat, was a weekly occurrence. Where he was known and was silent, lie did not impress. Urchinus Americanus. An urchin, full of wiggles, of wrench ings and of wriggles, Small Boya bus Americanos Urchinus is he, As happy as a li/ard, if he can fill his gi/./ard with red forbidden fruit from off your favorite apple tree. A lx>y to raise the dickens with wad dling ducks or chickens, with colts provoked to capers and sometimes antics worse. But as gay as any linnet, and happy in a minute, just after lie is spanked, with but a penny in his purse; Who tills his countless pockets with trash, from nails to rockets, with iishlincs and fantastics of a hun dred various brands, With grime upon his features, one of those agile creatures who runs upon his pattering hoofs or walks upon his hands. Prone oft to fun and frolic, in autumn melon-colic; gets cakes including stoinacakes and every other kind; Knees with artistic patches, hats that are ragged thatches, and basement patches frescoing him gracefully behind. A jnngler and a jumper, a thinker and a thumper, a mixture of all oppo sites in one small carcass blent, With wants all telescopic, industry microscopic, yet with the smallest blessings ever jolly and content. Face freckled with sun kisses, heart filled with boyish blisses, mercurial in temper and inclined to favor self, Yet winsomo altogether, in spite of wind or weather, a frolicsome, a rolicksome and caperiug young elf, Disturber of the masses, a leveller of the classes, as honest in his likings as the openness of the morn, As queer a human creature in fancy and in feature as genius e'er in vented or as ever yet was born. Not after all a spurner of that old time base-burner, the flat and flap ping slipper with the warm and ar dent sole, Which though not quite elective was not the less effective in fringing many a frolic with repentant dearth and dole, And yet this little fellow time shall mold and mellow into a glorious manhood which grand birthrights yet shall claim, Some woman shall adore him, obsta cles yield before him, and he may see his name inscribed upon the rolls of fame. He needs judicious scolding, a little careful molding, some yankings and some spankings in this bring ing up by hand, But careful work will win him, and there is packed up within him the future hope and glory of our high ly-favored land. Power of the Heart. The human heart is practically a force pump about six inches in length and four inches in diameter. It beats seventy times per minute, 4,200 per hour, 100,800 times per day, and 36,- 792,000 times per year, and 2,575,440,- 000—say two thousand five hundred and seventy-five millions four hun dred and forty thousand—times in seventy years, which is "man's ap pointed three score years in ten." At each of these beats it forces 2J ounces of blood through the system, 175 ounces per minute, pounds per hour, or 7.03 tons per day. All the blood in the body, which is about 30 pounds, passes through the heart every three minutes. The little or gan pumps every day what is equal to lifting 122 tons one foot high or one ton 122 feet high—that is one ton to the top of a forty-yard mill chimney. During the seventy years of a man's life this marvelous little pump, with out a single moment' B night or day, discharges the enormous quantity of 1,78,850 tons of human blood. A LOVE INDICATOR. WHAT WILL SCIENTFIC RESEARCH NEXT DISCOVER? ,lt la Claimed That sweetheart* •Hay Teat the Intensity of Ki-clp« roeal Affection by (he Aid of a Little Machine Actuated by the Subtle Current Electricity. A wonderful little instrument has been invented, which, if it is ever placed on the Olympia market, will be purchased by every lovesick swain and maiden in the city. It is an elec tric love machine and its name is not half as remarkable as the work which it docs. This machine is the invention of Prof. Savary d'Odiardi, of Silver street, Nottingdale Hill, London. The pro fessor is very well known in France and England. He received ths medal of honor from the French Humane Society for his devotion to humanity, and a modal from the National Com mission of Awards for his works and inventions. Prof. d'Odiardi calls his electric love machine a register of cerebral forces. He says it indicates every motion and reads every thought, but it is strong est for love and hate. The d'Odiardi instrument works by electricity, and is controlled by thought. When you come near this instru ment you immediately notice that the needle begins to swing. This, to the man who can read it, means some thing; and if you are provided with a chart you can read from the needle your own thoughts just as well as you can translate them from vour own mind. The instrument itself is very unpre tentious. It consists of a thread, from which is hung a tiny, hatchet shaped instrument, which has a sensi tized needle. This swings over a me tal disc, inscribed with degress. The instrument stands upon a pedestal and looks not unlike a piece of bric-a-brac. Every thought is registered by the needle, with or without the wish of the gazer; and unconscious thoughts are told as well as conscious ones. Be low the needle is a disc which records the movements of the needle, by ab sorbing all forces other than brain waves. People who have small brain power hardly influence the needle. Drunken men and idiots scarcely deflect it, be cause they have so few brain waves. Strong people causo the needle to vi brate rapidly, and when Mark Twain and Richard Crokcr tested the ma chine they found that the needle swung with such force that the de grees upon the metal disc could not be recorded. If you feel loving towards a person the needle comes towards you. If you feel hateful, it swings away. This fact is of the greatest human interest, because it suggests so much. The professor uses his instrument also to cure diseases. He studies the action of the mind, and notes its influ- I ence upon the hotly. This he after wards treats with his own electric But the instrument can be made of more general value as a love machine than it can by curing the *ick. All people feel or taste of love in some ff&y and there is no period in life when a man or woman is love proof. From the age of sixteen to sixty the vein of love runs through every human being and there are many cases in history of those who have felt its effects below and above these ages. This machine can fill the greatest human want, namely, that of supply ing a cure for the greatest malady that is known, lovesickness. Hundreds of people have tested this love machine and have found it to work quickly and accurately. It is useful to three classes of people. Lovers who want to find out if their sweethearts are devoted to them. Young men can take their sweethearts there and place them opposite the electric needle. The man stands at one pole and the woman at the other. Both concentrate their thought upon it. The young woman thinks intently of the young man, and the young man thinks intently of his sweetheart. This is an anxious moment. Both are awaiting the turn of the needle. The one with joyous anticipations; the other anxious. Slowly and surely the needle begins to move and with a few vibrating movements it swings it self towards the one whose love is strongest. Hate deflects the needle, and if the woman hates the man the needle swings far away front her. If, on the other hand, they love equally, the needle stands still. Married women visit Prof, d Odiardi to find if their husbands still love them. There comes a time in the life of every married man when he must stay out late at night. This the wife construes in different ways. It may be business, it may be pleasure. If the latter, he no longer cares for for her. By taking him to Prof. d'Odi ardi's machine she can tell if lie still loves her or if his love has turned to indifference. The machine is also used by psy chologists, who take old married peo ple there by way of experiment, to sec if love is permanent. They also have experimented some with old maids to find out if they can love later in life- If an old maid marries, say about the age of forty years, psychologists who arc interested in the electric love ma chine endeavor to get her to the labor atory of Prof. d'Odiardi, to determine whether she married from love or other motives. This machine can be made useful in divorces, to see if either had re mained constant in love. It can be used in cases of separation, to deter mine the custody of the child. If the needle swings toward the mother in stead of the father, her love must be stronger than his. In that case both would have to think intently of the child to influence the needle. Of course both would endeavor to put force upon it, and the needle would be a true indication of the cerebral radi ation of love. There are many other adaptations for the Electric Love machine. Phren ologists claim that no one should marry without a diagnosis by those who read bumps. This may be true. The love machine is also a good indi cator, and the man who consults both of these authorities, and finds that in each case his ladylove registers true to him, need have no objection to her on the ground of false motives. Prof. d'Odiardi is a cousin of the late Dr. Cruvellhler, who was the phy sician of King Louis Phillipi>e. He is of unquestioned standing in the French and German schools, and all of his discoveries and inventions are treated with respect, and not with in credulity. ESSAY OF AN INDIAN BOY. Original (dent Advanced by an In iciiiycnt of Tcndci lcftn* There is nothing more original than the early composition of an Indian boy. The following example is still preserved as an instance in which its savage author epitomized in uncon scious parable and with excellent hu mor the relations of the red man and his white brother, says the New York Mail and Express. It is entitled: " Story of Good Bird and Bad Cat." The essay follows: " One day, bright day, a little bird happy and stood on a log and sang all day long. That bird doesn't know anything about cat. She thinks no body is near to her. But behind the near log old sly cat is watching. She want to eat for supper, and she thinks about stealing all the time. The old cat came very slowly, and by and by she go after the little bird, but she docs not see him and sang loud again. She sang loud like this: 'I am always try to do what is right; wen I ever die I go to Heaven.' That bird said these all words, and I shall not forget the little bird what it said, and these all words it said and after two or three minutes go died; the cat jumped and catch and kill, eat all up except little things from bird, wings, legs or skin, and that bird is glad die because she is very good bird. The little bird has last time sang and very happy was the little bird after that. I think the old cat have good dinner and happy just the same as the bird was at first time." CHALLENGED GOD A Seedling forced Open the Walled TO HID os ois iniioeft IROUMOSBO "In the town of Hanover, in Ger many," Evangelist Moody writes in Ladies' Home Journal," there is buried a German countess who denied the existence of God and ridiculed the idea of the resurrection. To further show her contempt for Christianity she ordered that on her death her grave should be built up of solid masonry and covered by large stones bound together by iron clamps. On this toinb was engraved her defiant challenge that through eternity this tomb should never be disturbed. But one day the seed from some tree, either blown by the wind or carried by a bird, became lodged in a small crevice of the tomb, where soon it sprouted and began to grow. And then, as if nature had seemed to mock the haughty infidel, she quietly extended the delicate root of that seedling un der the massive blocks of stone, and slowly raised them from their place. And now, although scarcely four generations are passed since that tomb was sealed that insignificant seedling has accomplished what God Himself was challenged to accom plish."

Figure* concerning Their Origin, Their (J*e* and Abuae*. In olden times Bladensurg, Md., was the scene of many sanguinary duels. One of the highest shot towers in the world is to he found at Bilacli, in Carintha, where there is a fall of 249 feet. A really first-class sporting gun will cost from SIOO to SSOO, according to the quality of the workmanship. The bullet which killed Lord Nelson at Trafalgar is still preserved. It is mounted in a crystal locket, and re poses in a crimson hag with gold tassels. Large numbers of ilint-lock guns six feet long are made in England at $1.50 each, and many of these weapons find a ready market in darkest Africa. The rifle was introduced into the United States army about the begin ning of the present century. They were of such primitive makes that mallets were served out with each rifle to ram the bullets home. To "knock the spots off anything" is an illusion to the traditional skill of Western cowboys and famous rifle shots, who would shoot the spots out of a card held between the Angers of a friend. Elongated ride bullets are made from leaden rods. A machine cuts them into the required lengths, stamps them into shape by means of steel dies and drops them finished into a box at the rate of 7,000 an hour. Bullets, partially hollow, which ex pand in the wound, are sometimes used for shooting deer, while hollow headed explosive bullets are in request for dispatching tigers, elephants and other big game. One of the longest shots ever fired was fifteen miles, the range of Krupp's well-known monster 130-ton steel gun. The 100-ton Armstrong gun has an extreme range of fourteen miles, and requires 960 pounds of powder. These guns, however, proved too expensive, becoming useless before they were fired one hundred times. The Boers pay well for their guns; in fact, they buy the best that money can buy. They are connoisseurs in select ing their " shooting irons," promptly rejecting the inferior articles. This, with their constant practice, is the secret of their extraordinary skill as marksmen, as was proved in 188], when men fell like ninepins before their Westley-Richards rifles. WOMAN'S BEAUTY. Dow LOOK It Skoal* Lau Coder ■ •▼©■•DlC vlFCllllkllftDCCli The physical beauty of women should last, growing more and more mellow, until the end. That the beauty of women, like that of men, should be determined from the stand point of advancing maturity cannot be disputed. It is absurd to claim that the ripe, rich beauty of 40 is less attractive than the budding maturity of sweet 16. When women live in harmony with nature's laws, each stage of life has its own charm. The fullness of beauty does not reach its zenith under the age of 35 or 40. Helen of Troy came upon the stage at the age of 48. Aspasia was 36 when married to Pericles, and she was a brilliant figure 30 years thereafter. Cleopatra was past 30 when she met Antony. Diane de Poitiers was 36 when she won the heart of Henry 11. The king was hau her age, but his de votion never changed. Anne of Austria was 38 when described as the most beantiful woman in Europe. Mme. de Maintenon was 43 when united to Louis, and Catherine of Russia was 33 when she seized the throne she occupied for 35 years. Mile. Mar was most beautiful at 45 and Mme. Recamier between the ages of 35 and 55. Tlio most lasting and intense pas sion is not inspired by two decade beauties. The old saw about sweet 16 is exploded by the truer knowledge that the highest beauty does not mean immaturity, for beauty does not mean alone the fashion of form and coloring as found in the waxen doll. The dew of youth and a complexion of roses are admirable for that period, but a wo man's best and richest years are from 36 to 40. It is an arrant error for any woman to regard herself as passe at any age if she grows old gracefully. THE only permanent cure for chronic catarrh is to thoroughly expel the poison from the system by the faithful and persistent use of Ayer's Sarsa parilla. This wonderful remedy proves successful when all other treatment has failed to relieve the sufferer. A COUGH which persists day after day, should not be neglected any longer. It means something more than a mere local irritation, and the sooner it is relieved the better. Take Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It is prompt to act and sure to cure. WHOLE NUMBER 1,963.
