It designates the latest mode of beautifying the skin. Bleaches have been the rage, but they ar going ont. The process is too severe. True, the acid eats off the rougher outer cuticle, and for a short while exposes the more delicate skin beneath, but it in turn becomes harsh, and you are in a worse fix than before, unless more bleaching acid is used, snd to continue it in definitely would destroy tbe finest skin in the world. Thos face bleaches are waning, and In five years more will b3 hardly known. Now about "face ironing " Unlike bleaches, the process employs no acids, using only cool ing vegetab'e constituents that act the reverse from acids, in that they are instantaneous and actually healing to the skin. These are placed upon the face in semi-liquid form, drying In about twenty minutes. The drying process causes them to absorb blackheads, perspiration and the greasy exudations iron, the pores. A system of gentle 'ace massage it en removes all, and under the Influence of cooling and healing 1 ..lions the skin oomes out velvety and transparent. We have given the name "face ironing" to this new treatment. Unlike acid bleacnes that destroy,"tsce-ironing"preserves, and quite unlike slow corrosive bleaches, the effect is Instantaneous. We will create the most perfect complexion you ever had in thirty minutes. The effect Is complete before you leave our parlors. Ladles are invited to the parlors of MKS. V. E.

Literature ia in greater de- MANp THAN ORATORY. Political Text Books Are Above Par. Statesmen Who Havo Devoted Them selves to Political and McPherson a* Statisticians. [Special Correspondence.] New Yokk, Oct. 3.-Mr. John R. Van Worm.er, who Is secretary of the Union League club of New York city, having been asked to mate some political speeches, desired, to examine certain books contain ing statistics and authoritative statements. Among them was a book entitled "Young's Statesman's Guide." Mr. Van Wormer was astonished to find that it was impossi ble to get this book anywhere. He spent many hours searching; in the secondhand book stores without success. I3ut he found one curious condition in the present po litical canvass. Tho politicians of both parties have been saying that in the memory of no man now engaged in active politics is there recollec tion of a canvass so apparently free from excitement and great popular interest as is the present one, and many have won dered whether this indicated content with present conditions, indifference or the dy ing out of such interest in national politics as tends to spectacular demonstration ev ery four years. Mr. Van Wormer discovered that the demand for books, either of historical, sta tistical or practical political discussion, has been unprecedented. The publishers of such works declare that the call for them has been amazing. The proprietors of secondhand book stores say that they have been asked by correspondents from all parts of the United States to furnish this, that or the other work of a political nature, so tbat the suggestion is that while the political interest is not so noisy as It has been in times past, it is intense, and is di rected rather to private study of political! questions than to exciting campaigns, al though in some parts of the country en thusiasm seems to be of the old time sort. This feeling existing, it is quite likely that the political text book recently issued under the editorship of ex-Governor Long,, of Massachusetts, will find a wide circula tion. Years ago before John D. Long be came an active politician his disposition was toward a literary career. He trans lated with some felicity the "iEneid" of Vrr gil, and he wrote essays which fixed upon him the attention of such severe critics us Mr. Lowell. With these early efforts Mr. Long's venture into the field of literature ended. He became instead a student of oratory, and there are many who think that his oration at the Chicago convention of 1884 deserves to be ranked with the speeches of William M. Evarts, George William Curtis, Roscoe Conkling, Colonel Ingersoll and Daniel Dougherty upon sim ilar occasions. Leaving public life, in order to save his professional practice an a lawyer, Governor Long has done no literary work until he undertook this political text book. Mr. Edward McPherson, who, like Gov ernor Long, has served i n congress, has been tbe most prominent of all those who have compiled political yearbooks. McPherson was in congress during the war, repre senting the Gettysburg district at the time of the battle which bears the name of that town. He was an intimate friend of Pres ident Lincoln. To him Lincoln showed the draft of the Gettysburg oration, which the critics now agree in pronouncing to be un American classic which will live as long as tbe English language endures. After retiring from congress Mr. Mc- Pherson devoted himself partly to litera ture, and was for some years the editor of the Philadelphia Press. He is regarded as probably the best informed man on the sta tistics of politics now living. His memory is phenomenal. His capacity is rather that of a statistician than a profound thinker or a writer of literary charm. His yearly compilations are the recognized authori ties, and to them the future student of American political history of this genera tion will turn for authentic information. McPherson has probably furnished the stump speakers of both parties with more material than any other man has ever done who has written of American politics. No speaker himself, he has been the guide of speakers, the fountain from which they have drawn their facts and the inspira tion for some of the best stump speeches delivered by men of his own party. McPherson and Governor Long as well have had In mind the writing of a history of some particular phase of American poli tics, and it is said to be a fact that nearly every man of literary capacity who has served in congress has had some such scheme in mind upon retiring. Henry Cabot Lodge gave up a literary career to become a politician. He had written several volumes giving concisely and most entertainingly sketches of the careers of Hamilton and other statesmen of tbe early era. At one time he thought seriously of writing a political history of the American people, modeled somewhat upon McMaster's history, but the tempta tions of active political life and the ex traordinary opportunities be Jiad for enter ing it caused him to put aside that purpose. Carl Scliura, having quitted public life, began a study of American political his tory with a view of writing what he hoped would be an enduring work, but with the exception of a very able monograph on Abraham Lincoln aud a short life of Henry Clay, Mr. Schurz's idea has never been carried out. Tho number of personal reminiscences of men who have been in public life is great, and the tendency is to increase them. Some of them are works of extraordinary Interest, being quite as fascinating aa ro mances; but of all the men who have been prominent in public affairs and who have conceived the idea of writing comprehen sive political history, only two have given to the worlil works of permanent value. Old Bullion Benton, as he was called, the father-in-law of John C. Fremont, wrote after his retirement a political, his tory extending from 1820 to 1850—a work that has been of immense value to states men and politician.4 since. James G. Blame continued the narrative, taking the polit ical history as it was made under his eye down to 1880. Benton's volume has little literary skill, while Blame's is superior in this respect; but the young man who reads them both will have in mind information which is better than anything which he can gather in the polit ical year book.

A Child Who I» Ssiid to Have Converted Many People. , When Indraha coil, fereiiee of SEhIIMW* met at Salem a few days ago a slender and quiet girl of fifteen years—a girl with 4 pale, but rather pretty face and lond light hair—took her seat among them; Of course she did not lift up her voice 1 in the debates or have a vote on any con' troverted point, for she is not and can* not be a regularly ordained minister) nevertheless she attracted as much at' tention as any preacher in the body, and if half tTiaf.in cni/l it halt that is said of her be true shd has been as sue cessf ul as the best of them. He name is Fanny Edwards, her home is in Louis ville, she was fif' teen years old on the 16th of las* July, and she haa been an evangel j ist for four years. The world may wonder, but there FANNY EDWARDS. have been many instances of very young evangelists. The experience of Fanny Edwards has been much the same al that of all youthful evangelists, even back to the youth of Samuel the Prophet. Her father, James D. W. Edwards, is a sober, honest and entirely unlettered mechanic of Louisville. His wife is even more poorly educated, barely able, to read in fact. Their daughter was and still is delicate in frame, rather small for her age, and had to quit school early in the grammar grade on account of ill health. In reading the Bible she stum bles badly at the long words, but her voice is so sweet and clear, and her deli cate frame seems to thrill with such emotion as she reads, that the rendering is singularly effective. A little over four yeara ago she went with her parents to a meeting at the Central Gospel mission, in Louisville/ and was converted. The mission conducted by the Rev. W. H. Munnaftl, and he was so much impressed by rh#-' child's language that he called on her to pray. Her simple petition had a won derful effect, and thereafter she was a regular participant in the revival exer cises. She assisted the famous Mrs. Woodworth at the "camp meeting," so called, in the lower part of Louisville and was baptized by that evangelist. She united with the Main Street Metho dist church and was soon after licensed as an evangelist, though not as an or dained minister. Her first work was at Glasgow Junc tion, Ky., and her next in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. Her moet suc cessful meetings have been held in In diana. During her three weeks at Bed ford, in that state, sixty persons pro fessed conversion. During her two weeks at Gosport forty-three were added to the church. At Elliottsville, Stines ville and other small towns her work was very successful. In the city of Evansville she held services for ten days in the Y. M. C. A. hall with great suc cess, and similar success attended her at New Albany, Jeffersonville and other places. It is gratifying to. record that her health has greatly improved, and sho bids fair to become a strong and finely developed woman. She is still a child, however, and many who have studied such cases say that at maturity her re markable power will cease. Once she had trances and visions, but that is done with. Once also she attempted an or thodox doctrinal serrhon, and it is scarcely necessary to add that it was a failure. She is simply a child evan gelist. Some Interesting Figures. The report of the British consul at Guayaquil concerning the foreign trade of Ecuador for the years 1889, 1890 and 1891 is made up from the finance minis ter's report to congress, and places the imports in 1889 at $'.),08*1,455 and exports at $7,910,210. In 1890 the imports were $10,016,857 and the exports $9,761,637, while in 1891 the imports wore $7,341, --095 and the exports $7,851,800. Twenty three per cent, of the exports went to France (a large portion being eventually destined for Holland), 19 per cent, to Spain, 18 per cent, to England, 18 per cent, to Germany aud about per cent, to the United States. Of the imports 26 per cent, came from England, 24 per cent, from France, 16 per cent, from tho United States, 13 per cent, from Ger many and 2 per cent, from Spain. In this report the revenues and expendi tures for the year 1891 are given as fol lows: Income, $3,584,365, and expendi tures, $3,945,561. The postal telegraph service of the republic cost in 1891 $206,334 against an income of $59,878, but a considerable part of the expendi ture was applied to the construction of new telegraph lines.
