Aguinaldo was born on the 22d day of March. 1869, at Cavite Viejo, and his education was such as the schools of the little country town were able to provide, and his life was spent in business to his twenty-fifth year, when he was elected Mayor of Cavite. On the 20th of Au gust, 1896, the governor of the Province of Lavite reported to Manila that every thing was quiet in Cavite, and no insur gents to be found anywhere. Aguinaldo, on his way home on the day alter, the 21st of August. 1896, heard that a war rant had been issued for his own arrest on the charge of siding with the insurrec- XSIILIO AOCINALDO mm Raspsr's Wikklt.

Harper, who writes of bis interview with Aguinaldo in Har per's Weekly for December 3d, he gather ed twenty of his friends around him and waited for the arrival of the warrant. On the 22 1 a captain of the civil guard and two sergeants appeared to arrest him, and were promptly killed. This started the revolution which has culmi nated in making him President of the Philippine Republic. fir. Dooley on the Philippines. "I know what I'd do if I was Mack," said Mr. Hennessy. "I'd hist a flag over th' Ph'lispoeens, an' I'd take in th' whole lot iv tbim." "An' yet," said Mr. Dooley, "tis not more tbin two months since ye lamed whether they were islands or canned goods. If your son Pack? was to ask ye where the Ph'lippeens is. cud ye give him anny good idea whether they was in Rooshia or jus' west iv th tracks?" "Mebbe I cudden't," said Mr. Hennes sy, haughtily, "but I'm f r takin' tbim in, annyhow." "So might I be," said Mr. Dooley, "if I cud on'y get me mind on it. Wan iv the worst things about this here war is th' way it's makin' puzzles fr our poor, tired heads. "I've been r readin about th country, full iv gold an' precious stones, where th' people cqn pick dinner off th' threes, an' ar're starvin' because they have no step ladders. Th' inhabitants is mostly nay-' gurs an' Chinymen, peaceful, indnsthrns, an' law-abidin', but savage an' blood thirsty in their methods. They wear no clothes except what they have on, an' each woman has five husbands an' each man has five wives. Th' r rest goes into th' discard, th' same as here. Th' islands has been ownded be Spain since belure th' fire; an' she's threated thim so well they're now np in ar-rnms again her, except a majority iv thim which is thnrly loyal. Th' natives seldom fight, but whin they get mad at wan another they r-run a muck. Whin a man r runs a muck, sometimes they hang him an' sometimes they discharge him an' hire a new motorman. Th' women ar-re beautiful, with languishin' black eyes, an' they smoke see-gars; but ar-re hurried an' incomplete in their duress. I see a pitcher iv wan th' other day with nawtbin' on her but a basket ol cocoa nuts and a hoop-skirt. They're no prudes. We import juke, hemp, cigar wrappers, sugar, an' lairy tales fr'm th' Ph'lippeens, an, export six-inch shells an' th' like. "1 lamed this fr'm th' papers, an' I know 'tis straight. An' yet, Hinnissy, I dinnaw what to do about th Ph'lip peens. An' I'm all alone in th' wurruld. fvrybody else has made up his mind. Ye ask . anny con-ducthor on Ar-rchy R road, an' he'll tell ye. Ye can find out fr'm th' papers; an', if ye really want to know, all ye have to do is to ask a prom'nent citizen who can mow all the lawn he owns with a safety razor. But I don't know." "Hang on to thim," said Mr. Hennes sey stoutly. "What we've got we must hold." An Audacious Swindler. A wnrrl nnliririfln nf New York has just distinguished himself as one of the most audacious swinniers on recora. in spite of the fact that he is not a Roman Catholic he had the presumption to go to Rome and ask the Pope to appoint him trustee of all the church property in the Philippine Islands, amounting to the enormous sum of $200,000,000. It seems that this man Thornton by name prepared himself lor his project with scrupulous care, ne nrsi went to iuc State department at Washingion. where through the request of Senator Murphy he secured tne orainary icticra ui -mww duction to ministers and consuls abroad. He next used these letters to secure an interview with. Archbishop Corrigan who gave him credentials to i.aruini " I . i-lil,-.. sL- ka Rampolia on tne suppusmuu uu. was an agent of the government. He then visited the Vatican and, having se cured an audience with the Pope, was progressing finely when Arch-bishop Keane arrived in Rome and exposed him as an impostor. This incident only goes to show how far an impostorcan succeed when he takes advantage ol the general disposition of men to jump at conclu sions. Burlington Free Press. THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, DECEMBER 28, 1898. 3 The Dawn of Peace. Put off, put off your mall, O Kings, And beat your brands to dust I Your bands must learn a surer grasp. Your hearts a bet ter trust. Oh, bend aback the lance's point, And break the helmet-bar; A noise is in the morning wind, But not the note .of war. Upon the grassy mountain paths The glittering hosts increase. They cornel They cornel How fair their feet! They come who publish peace. And victory, fair victory, Our enemies are ours 1 For all the clouds are clasped In light, And all the earth with flowers. Aye, still depressed and dim with dew ; But wait a little while. And with the radiant deathless rose The wilderness shall smile. And every tender, living thing Shall feed by streams of reBt ; Nor lair bs shall from the flock be lost. Nor nursling from the nest. John Raskin. A Coming Dilemma. Old ninety-eight Is nearly past, And ninety-nine is coming fast; And soon bur poets will be found Alt writhing madly on the ground ; For ninety-nine, like ninety-eight, A twelvemonth hence must meet its fate; And then our poets will be caught At finding rhymes for "naughty naught." Not t at the rhymes are very rare They can be found 'most anywhere. But how can one refer with pride, In lofty rhythm and dignified, In periods ful of sentiment Of nobler sort, from Heaven sent, When in theend slap-bang they 're brought Against a term like "naughty-naught?" And after "naughty naught" is done. Good lack ! then comes the "naughty one!" From I he Drawer," in Harper's Maga zine for January. A New Use For the Chafing-Dlsh. Now that cold weather, with its candy making possibilities, is once more upon us, the owner of a chafing-dish may add a convivial feature to many an evening spent in her house if she will bring forth her chafiing-dish and in it compound some delicious home-made candy. ' The chafing dish will prove the center of at traction and interest, and will supply the often sought-lor "something to do" on a winter's evening. Very delicious and easy to prepare in a chafing dish is a certain "brew" ol va nilla caramels. Put into the blazer two cupfuls of sugar, a cup of cream, and two generous table-spoonfuls of butter. Stir constantly to prevent scorching, until a little of the boiling liquid will turn to a firm paste if dropped in iced water. Remove from the fire, stir in two teaspoonfuls of vanilla extract, and beat hard for several minutes before turning the mixture into buttered pans to cool. Mark off in squares. These are relished by people who like granu lated or sugared caramels. Chocolate caramels with nuts may be prepared by cooking together in the blazer a pound of brown sugar, a quarter of a pound of grated chocolate, and half a cup of water. When the candy hardens in water, stir into it one table-spoonful of butter and a cup of chopped walnuts or hickorynuts. Beat hard and remove from the fire. Turn into pans and cut in squares. Harper's Bazar. Do Fishes Sleep? "Do fishes sleep, and how?" This question wis addressed to Eu gene G. Blackford formerly fish commis sioner ot New York state. His acquain tance with fish began when be was very young, and at the present time be is a recognized authority all over the world. "Certainly they sleep," was Mr. Black ford's responce. "They sleep suspended in the water with their eyes wide open. I have seen them do it often. I have many fish in tanks with glass fronts and can watch them. Sometimes I see a fish suspended in the water keeping perfectly still for half an hour at a time, and then I conclude that he is asleep. He doesnot even move a fin as such times, and the motion ol the gills is barely perceptible. "Pishes don't close their eyes, because there is no necessity for their doing it. They have no eyelids, because their eyes are not exposed to dust as ours are. They don't close their eyes in sleep be cause the light is so modified by the wa t r that it is not hard for them to find a twilight spot. "But they cao close their eyes if they want to do it, and they do on very par ticular ocasions. I will show yon. John bring me a trout." The man went to a tank and soon re turned bearing in his hand a fine trout about eight inches is length. This Mr. Blackford held while he took a lead pencil and touched one of its eyes with the point. The trout wiggled abont vigor ously and at the same time drew an in side yellow curtain over the eye. "You see, be can close his eyes if he choses." said the former fish commis ioner. Harper's Bazar. Home-Made Barometer. One of the most serviceable and useful articles about the farm is a good baro meter which will foretell nearly all the changes in the weather. There is no rea son whv we should be without, such a useful instrument when we can procure a first-class one at a cost of about 30 cents. Many of the so called barometers are of little use on account of the poor quality of the chemicals used. If we buy the chemicals ourselves we will be more apt to get a better instrument. Buy the lollowing from a good chemist: One ounce oi camphor, one ounceof saltpetre, one ounce of ammonia salts, and dissolve them in 15 drams of alcohol. Shake the mixture well and pour into a long slen der bottle, and cork np tightly. Be sure and have the bottle full, so there will be little or no air inside. Hang your baro meter on the north side ol a building, or some place not exposed to the sun, and the following will be your weather indi cations: Absolute clearness ol the liquid means lair weather. Thread-like objects at the top ot the bottle indicate high wind. If the liquid becomes roily it is a sign of rain. Little stars in the liquid mean a hard storm. If downy masses form iu the bottom of the' bottle it will be coll ; the more these masses rise to the top the colder it will become. Farm ers' Advocate. A Cowboy Compliment. Once, when Madame Nordica was sing ing at a concert in Texas, she forgot her warm overshoes. A cowboy, whom she had utterly lascinatcd, offered to bring them to her, and did so, but he brought only one at a time When Madame Nordica thanked him, and in her gracious way regretted to have given him so much trouble, he said to her, "Don't name it ma'am. I wish Lou were a centipede." Philadelphia edger. t A Kind- Letter From Dewey. The bravest are the tenderest. The loving are the daring, sang Bayard Tayler in the Song of the Camp, The truth of this has been borne in on us many times during recent months and it is felt anew as one reads the following letter from Admiral Dewey to the widow of a man killed in the bat tle of Malate, July 31. He writes: Olympia, Flagship. Manila, Oct. 23, 1898. My Dear Mrs. Noss: I wish to express to you my deepest sympathy. It must lessen your sorrow somewhat to know that your young husband fill fighting bravely for his country, the noblest death a man can know. From the Olympia I watched the fight that fearful night and wondered bow many American homes would be saddened by the martyrdom suffered by our brave men, and my sym pathy went out to each and every one of them. Your loss has been sadder than the others, and I am unable to express the sorrow 1 leel for you. Tears came to my eyes as I read the sad story of the father who never saw bis child and then the loss of all that was left to the brave mother. It is hard sometimes to believe, but our Heavenly Father, in his infinite goodness, always does things for the best, and some day father, mother and daughter will be joined, never again to be parted. With my tenderestsympathy, believe me, your sincere friend. George Dewey. Livable Rooms. The successful placing of chairs in a drawing room amounts to an art. Every one knows how, with some articles of furniture, one woman will make a room look livable, and another will make it look stiff, while a stupid servant will completely spoil the effect after a gene ral cleaning by putting each thing "just wrong." Any one who entertains much should really study the arrangement of chairs, as their juxtaposition and look of invita tion have ranch to do with the success of small gatherings. A Washington wo man, whose charming receptions were noted lor their attractiveness, and who has the nearest approach to a "salon" that is possible in this country, said, when asked for the secret of her success : "I really ascribe what you are kind enough to term my popularity to my chairs. I never clear out my rooms for a crowd, as is generally the custom, but place inviting looking seats in groups, and it is astonishing how quickly each group forms, as it were, a focus and draws congenial people together." One dood Habit. When the whole world turns over a new leaf, it seems timely to remind our. readers of one habit which we can com mend: It is the reading of The Boston Herald. Some of our patrons read The Daily Herald and some of them The Snnday Herald. We would that all of them read both The Sunday and The Daily Herald. This pre-eminently great newspaper, the greatest in New England, has made the greatest record of its re cord breaking career. In every depart ment it has made unmistakable advance ment. In its makeup it meets every re quirement of the rtteding public. From the smallest item of local news, to the great st events of the day it omits noth ing, and yet in iu great pages finds room for stories, incidents and anecdotes, which seems marvellous when one con siders the demands upon its columns. The Sunday Herald is greater and broader than ever before, and every page is brightened by timely, wtll-drawn illus trations. During the past year The Bos ton Herald in its various editions has published nearly 10,000 illustrations. Certainly the reading of The Boston Herald is to be commended. Are vou a Herald reader ? If not, why not become one during 1899 ? It is your last chance of the century. Divorce by Candles. When a Burmese husband and wife de cide to separate the woman goes out and buys two little candles of equal length, which are made especially lor this use. She brings them home. She and her husband sit down on the floor, and placing the candles between them, light them simultaneously. One candle stands lor her, the other for him. The one whose candle goes out first rises and goes out ol the house forever, with noth ing but what he or she may have on. The one whose candle has survived the longer time, even by a second, takes Sooner or later ev ery woman must duel with Death. Nature has provided her with a set of extremely sensitive organs upon the condition of which the health of her whole body depends. She must keep these distinctly feminine or gans fully protected by the armor of health. That is her best de fense against Death at the time that Death comes closest to her the time when she becomes a mother. Dr. Pleree'a Favorite Prescription is designed for the one purpose' of curing all diseases, or dis orders of the feminine system, except can cer. It stops debilitating drains, soothes inflammation, promotes regularity of the monthly function and puts the whole fe male organism into a state of strong, vig orous health. Taken during the period of gestation it robs childbirth of its pain and danger. Over 250,000 grateful women have written of the wonderful help of the " Favorite Pre scription." Among others Mrs. Cordelia Henson, of Coalton, Boyd Co., Ky., writes : "In October 1889 I gave birth to a bahy and the treatment I received at the hands of the mid wife left me with prolapsus. I had no health to apesk of for three years. I had another baby which was the third child. My health began to fall and I then had three miscarriages and found myself completely worn out, I had so many pains and achea my life was a burden to me and also to all the family, for I waa nervous and crass and I could not sleep. Had four doctors. They aald I had liver, lung and uterine trouble. I was in bed for months and when I did get up, I was a sight to behold. I looked like a corpse walking about. I commenced tak ing Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and in a few weeks I became a well woman. Before I began the use of Dr. Pierce's medicine I suf fered all a woman could suffer at my monthly periods, but now I have no pain.

"During the civil war one of the regi ments from the North, mostly composed of Irishmen, who are ever loyal to their country, was passing Georgia along the line of Sherman's march to the sea. There they had the misfortune to be as sailed by a hostile regiment that ap peared to be getting the best of tbem. "It was in the midst of the hail of death, when the Irish regiment was being mowed down, there being no shelter, no ambuscade, that ot a sudden there rushed out from the ranks a little witty Irish Sergeant, who remembered his country and remembered Georgia. He rushed into tbe line of fire, and called out: "Hold on there, you fools! Stop yer shootin'l Don't yer see yer killin'dim ocrats!" San Francisco Bulletin. His Mission.

The vomiting and wrenching seemed to be due to something below my stomach and the deathly sickness I suffered was terrible even to think of. I became so weakened by the headaches and vomiting that I was Boon unable to leave my bed and I re mained In this condition for some time, but finally rallied and for two or three months Twos so I could crawl around and wait upon myself. Then I was taken down again with those terrible vomiting spells and headaches, and I was worse than before. I determined to try Hood's Barsaparilla and persisted in its use.
