The papers of Clearfield, Pa., report fthat a decided temperance movement is Sweeping over the entire county. Re? monstrances against liquor license ap? plicants will be pushed with unusual vigor. For every 566 ministers that die there are 163 deaths among farmers. 820 among carpenters, 890 among coal min? ers, 1.202 among plumbers, 1,361 among brewers, 1,521 among inkeepers and 2,205 among bartenders. A license fee of $200 a year will have to be paid hereafter in Chicago for mov? ing picture machines and mutoscopes In saloons and dance halls. This is cal? culated to do away with machines con? taining Immoral pictures. Vermont passed a license law in 1848 fey a majority of only 13 votes In the ?tate, but after a year of the licensed saloon voted it out by a majority of 13,000 votes.

MISTAKEN CALCULATION Shown That Ainrrlra'i I'er (Tapit* ? "Milli 111 |?l ion of I i<| . ?. ?? ??.G? Than Klflren Dollar?. BY GEOROE ? ? Y POWELL. A recent issue of a prominent tem? perance paper gave the per capita of annual liquor consumption at $15 in the United States of America and $35 per capita in the German empire. The lat? ter Jgure is probably not far from be? ing right. That of our country is not half high enough. It is evidently based ' on the $900,000.000 of liquor consump? tion so generally, and erroneously ac? cepted by prohibitionists and disputed as too high by the liquor dealers. The . $900,000,000 can be shown to be about right, by analysis of the United States government customs and Internal reve? nue returns on malt, fermented and dis? tilled liquors. Rut this represents only i the approximately pure liquors. This !is less than one-third the manufactured and the adulterated liquors retailed at the bars of our country. The extent of this has been emphasized In the recent prosecutions for adulterations of liquors on a gigantic scale. Add to this the vast amount of illicit distillation, and we have a startling grand total of not less than 3^ billion dollars. Divide this by the total of our population, as shown by the last census and it will be seen that the $15 per capita falls far astern. The view of this huge consumption?which the liquor ring dreads to have presented to the business men of the land?shows what a tremendous sponge It Is to an? nually suck up the money that our.mer? chants, manufacturers and farmers should get for honest work. When our commercial captains do get this Into their heads, liquor makers and sellers will be driven from chambers of com? merce and boards of trade, as Jesus drove the money changers from the temple. Home market is Incomparably the best market In any land. This market, the pirating liquor trade has so utterly In Its possession, that It gets more of the actual cash of our people than all the legitimate trade and Industries of our people put together. Thus "hard times" and money panics come to us from this hellish Box of Pandora. Then, after this wholesale robbery, the exasperation of this mischief Is Intensified, by mil? lions of dollars being rolled in on the tax payers for crime. Insanity, pauper Ism, etc., created by this trade in In-, toxicants. It is also the compound lever of the devil. In debauching our politics, e? that franch ises which should be worth millions to our citizens and their chil? dren, are stolen from them In creating "Trusts,?? that crush by cornering food I and fuel, no matter, who starves, or i freezes, and that sell out the nation to | aliens, at home and abroad. Good citizens of all parties should see ? In all this a peril to the national life, ? financially, and otherwise, of ominous | proportions. POSSIBLE RESULTS OF DRINK. Th?* piacT0?e? That Ar?

It will endeavor to arrange and correlate all figures per? taining to both sides of the liquor question. The bureau will aim to keep In touch wUh the sales of liquor in the United States and other countries, and to keep temperance workers Informed of all the movements of organization of both liquor dealers and employes.

Hand-To-Hand Fighting CIVIL WAR BATTLES THAT WERE DECIDED BY PHYSICAL SUPERIORITY OF THE MEN *???? "I notice that a good many men are still in doubt as to the utility of the bayonet and seem MUkOtSJst to believe there were any hand-to-hand conflicts during the war. There was one at .Jouesboro, in which one bayonet was ?used effectively. Our brigade had Charged a battery anu the men were among the guns when one of the con? federate gunners running back to hie gun was just in the act of firing it when a man of the Seventy-eighth Illinois took in the situation. There was a cluster of 20 men directly in front of that gun and a pull of the string meant death to most of them. The confederate had been ordered to surrender and the men near the gun supposed be had sur? rendered, when he changed his mind and decided to give us one more shot for luck. "It was a brave thing to do, but It was a terrible thing for us and required quick action. My comrade of the Seventy eighth Illinois was as quick as a flash of lightning, it seemed to me. He thrust all "HIS BAYONET WENT CLEAR THROUGH THE CONFEDERATES BODY." at the man in a way to push him back from the gun, and his bayonet went clear through the confederate's body. We left him, as we supposed, dead, but at a later date I found him in one of our hospitals at Atlanta, by the side of one of our own men wounded the same day. He got well, and if living (o-day knows that bayonets were used during the war in a very reckless way." "There was another hand-to-hand tus? sle in the fighi on the ?and Town road in the Atlanta campaign. We charged th? confederate Works and climbed on top just as the confederates fired a volley. The bullets went over our heads and the next minute we looked down on the Louisiana Tigers with empty gune Itt their hands. All our men had held their fire and we thrust the muzzles ef our rifles in the very faces of the aien be? low us and demanded them to surrender. Some few attempting to push the guns I away were shot, but the most of them surrendered without ceremony. As one . of them said, they knew their time had come and that the question of sum ?4?G* Ing was not open to debate." "I had wime doubts," said the ser? geant, "about hand-to-hand stnicglps during the first year of the war. Onr reginient did good work at Sliiloh. but didn't come to close quarters with the enemy. We made our mark at P<>rry vllle, but not at close range, and I won? dered if any battle was fought In which men strove against each other within reach of bayonet or sword. At Stone river we charged at a run against a con? federate line. I expected the old thing to happen and the enemy to break. I shook from head to foot as I saw the confederates start on a run and at a charge bayonets to meet us. I could see the hair and eyes and facial expression of the confederates as they came steadily and swiftly toward us. I remember one fellow wore a red comfort around his j neck and that the ends were flapping in a ' very ridiculous way as he ran. "I could see a short man making his legs do their best, and a long-legged fel IMP In advance. I felt this thing couldn't go on without bayonet striking bayonet and without the lines crashing together. The crash came sooner than I expected, and not quite in the way I expected. About half of our men went through or over the confederate line, some of us coming down on our heads and others on our feet. It was undignified and confus? ing, and when we turned we found men in gray standing back to back fighting both ways. There was little orno shoot? ing, but a giving and taking of hard blows, and a good deal of rough-and tumble scrapping. Finally one of the confederates shouted: 'What's the use? Why in thunder don't somebody ask us to surrender?' Thereupon all our fel? lows shouted 'Surrender!' and down went the muskets of the confederates caught between our lines. "There wasn't all unbruised man in our company, but we felt like birds win ? the confederates threw down their guns and shed their cartridge boxes and belts. They went to the rear, and we went slam-bang into another confederate line, which, yielding at first, rallied and drove us back. Then we rushed them and broke their line, and I never felt hup pler lr. my life when 1 saw the men in gray scamper away into the cedars. At Chickaniauga we waited for the confederate* u? charge, and the broke us *iH up. Some of our boys were So c onipletelv knocked out that they ran a mile like orSfS? liorM^s, in the belief that the ? hole army had been routed and that the only thing to do was to get oft" thc> title!. Then they slowed up, rame to their senses, t urned and ran the other way. and, falling in anywhere, fought like wildcats io Mie end, crashing at odd times fcftlo the c ? m ? federate lines with the vievil-niay-care insolence of football payers in atus?le." VETERANS NEVER AT WAR. Soldier? Who Did Not Heach the Kroat I? the OttrM War. llrawluK Penatomi. The apotheosis of the pension business was reached recently in Washington with an award to a member of th<* Metro? politan rifles, who was nevera member of the army or navy of the United Slat?*, regular or volunteer, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. There has never been a question as to the title of veterans of actual war. civil, Mexican or Spanish-American who were at the front and In actual bat? tle, wounded and rendered helpless and dependent, to receive the bounty of the government. These conditions have been broadened of late years. Men who guarded prisoners In the safe seclusion of Johnson's island, men who served bravely in the home guards, men who made the railway trip to the capital and loitered behind the fortifications for '?0 or HO days to relieve soldiers who were ne-eded at the firing line, all these have been granted pensions to a greater or less extent on the general ground that they are now old men, many of them helpless, and that having shown their willingness to do something In the busi? ness of the civil war they are entitled to some gratitude in dollars and cents. Even young men who spent their sum? mer vacation In the quite seclusion of Chlckamauga park at government ex? pense in 1898 and who never saw any? thing more hostile than a mosquito have been given money on one pretext or an? other from the pension fund after some principle not generally understood, but for which the taxpayers are apparently willing to stand. But when all Is said and done the Metropolitan rifles of Washington ap pear to constitute the limit. In IStil there was unrest ? Washington while the city was wafting for the advent of real troops whe had been called out to de? fend it There was an independent mili? tary company or so about, composed of citizen!- who w?re, like most of the peo? ple here, southern in sympathy. Hut it was at last decided advisable for the internal quite of the capital to put one or two of these Independent companies under arms for the moral effect it might have on the more unpleasant eh nu-t ts of the population. Moreover, such a st ?p would free the few regulars present for more important outpost duty. The Metropolitan rifles were ordered under arms, as the sheriff of any county in Ohio might order an independent military company under arms as a posse for the temporary emergency, it was not expected that any rebels would stray across Long bridge that early in the day. Had they done so the police force would undoubtedly have placed them under arrest for carry concealed weap? ons or for disorderly conduct. Hut the Metropolitan rifles parades' They were never mustered into the serv? ice of the government that an\ record note>. They did the work that Sonsas band did when it escorted volunteer troops to the Cleveland depot in 1SU8 But a member of this organization has proved his claim to the title of "union veteran'' with all the privileges and rights specific legislation grants to such. The decision was based on the fact that he was "at the front" because there were no union troops between his station and that of the em my and that be was under arms. \<. Saeh i.nc-L.

Record a? tlie Dun Oomeatle I Irr. maga Wrecked in a Mnidr Muht by a Ult of Inc-u-uauble Care leanness. This story is told by the Indianapolis Bentinel of an Irvington suburbanite, Burner by name, who prides himself a greet deal on his systematic and scien? tific methods of caring for nil furnace fire. He Is a model of method and pre? cision from in the early fall, when he lays in a supply of coke sufficient to last all winter, until late in the spring when be lets the fire flicker out. All of his friends and neighbors look upon him as an authority on firing, and all his neighbors' wives use him as an exemplar for their own less careful husbands. The secret of his success, ss ne ?Item alps? Is common sense sn4 nttMtftPA te ele? tail. It Is only a matter of supplying fuel, regulating drafts and removing the ashes. Sitting in bis cozy parlor, the coyest night of this week, he expound? ed his theories on heating to three young women, cousins of his wife, who had come to visit them. In contempla? tion of the shortcomings of some men who tried to run furnaces he really waxed eloquent over his own record, and his heart ?welled with pride, which was shared by his wife, when he said that there had not been a day or a night this winter when the house was not comfortable. The young ladles were visibly Impressed. At the usual hour he went to the basement, fired up and adjusted things for the night, and a couple of hour? later they retire^ The house certainly was warm, and the young folk? were heard comparing notes across the hall? way on the delightfulnees of it. Burner ?mlled even in hi? sleep with the joy of their appreciation. But about four in the morning, when the world seem? coldest, darkest and LOOKED AT dreariest. Burner awoke wfth a scare He thought he heard a feminine volca Inquire if ?orne one was warm, and then heard the patter of bare feet in the ball. He stretched himself with a shiver that shook the bed. "Gee whiz," ha muttered, "I must have forgotten to open my register." With a mighty ef? fort of will and not much else he jumped from his bed and groped along the wall until his hand cam? In contact with a piece of cold iron. It was the register. It was open, but the genial warmth which should have b< en pouring out was a stream of air at a zero temperature. Burner had turned blue by that time, but he was ?ame. He lighted a lamp and looked at the rtgister. II?? hartily knew what he expect <-d to discover, but he felt that an investigation was demanded. The register looked Just as usual, but It certainly was delivering colti air. Bur? ner dove into bed and considered, but his discomfort was a condition to b? met, and not a theory. He got out and began to hustle into his clothes. "What are you doing, John?" called a sleepy voice. "Going to the fire," he responded. "Where is it?" "Out." As Burner started the fire afresh he found that he had neglected to close the draft, and the career of the night's sup? ply of fuel had been brief but glorious. The young ladles are still there and need only speak of sleeping three in a bed to cast Burner into the "slough of de? spond." Oyater Farmi??; Down Eait. There are about a hundred and six? ty thousand acres of ground under th? waters of Long Island sound, within the jurisdiction of the stats of Con? necticut, available for oyster farming. This form of "agriculture" is said te average much mora profit than farm? ing on dry land. The oyster lands are worth from one dollar to three thou? sand dollars an acre and in some years the profit is great. The lands are as? signed and bought at a dollar an acre, and after that they are taxed yearly at the valuation set on them by the state Shell fish commission, which varies according to tbe amount of work ex? pended upon them and the success of cultivating them. The Industry has become an important one and some persons bave confidently asserted that the best oysters grown are those raised in this way in Connecticut waters. Th? Bce'a Mark?! Basket.
