their action to that cf the young lady herself
who, forgetting her own horrible suffering,
deprived herself of her wrappings

Gov. XcUill, of Minnesota, finds tho
new high-license law in that State an efficient
means of reducing the evils of in*
toxic?.'ion to a minimum. The Governor
says there has been a total rednction of
over 1,600 in the number of saloons in the
State, and that"while the effects of the law
with regard to the diminution of drunkennej3
mr.flt naturally be of a mora or lese
speculative determination, still thore are
many facts which plainly warrant an inference
that there is much less than be*
foro tho law went into operation." He
then quotes tho opinion of Bishop Ireland,
who, he truthfully says, is probably bettei
able to judge of the general effect of the
law with respect to drunkenness than
anybody olae ia the State.
Bishop Ireland says: "If there was I
popular vote t>day as to high license ^ic

io and receipta ^$737,751, leaving a deficien- 8
cy of $114,053. The receipts of the 8tate
Treasury from licensoa show a falling off h
ig in revenue of more than $100,000 annual- e,

The State's Indebtedness is $1,2 41,000 and
the net increase of indebtedness for the I

Of the prohibitory law the Governor h
td says that the Chief of State Police has r
in been diligent in his olflce and that the law n
[if he was appointed to administer has been I
>r enforced as /ar as the influence in his con- r
id trol can efi'est it. That the law is not t!
a- more efficient is for wantofasufllcient pub- I
le lie sentiment to support it. It is a thankre
less task to attempt to enforcealaw which

mnnity. j

Q, A Constitutional Amendment Reported In 5
tS the Mnaiiachnsetta Senate. ^
8" Boston, Jan. 18.?The Legislature, ^
2 which has just goi to work, is undoubted- i
1(1 ly in favor of constitutional prohibition,
to It is almost certain that the prohibitory
amendment will be advanced toward sub- r
fl? mission to the people at the 1889 eloction. f
,r" The Prohibitionists are early at work, t
or and to-day an amendment forbidding the t
Je manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquors t
"7 was reported to the Senate by the Com- c
er mittee on Constitutional amendments, c
By a new order of procedure this and all ?
er other amendments were referred to a new i
an Rpecial committee instead of to the Liquor a
Law Committeo. , t
ry The first debate of the eeason will be
|8' upon this measure, and it will probably
b0 p ise tho Senate by a fair majority, and
the House by the necfsiary two-thirds. It t
n* must then receive a similar endorsement ,
rl* from the Legislature of 1BS9 in order to go J
Dt> to the people for fiual disposition at the *
Q* next election. Three of the eight mem- s
or bers of the committee dissent from the j
M report. s
There are some indications that the pro- g
hihitioniata will be stroncr enouiih to carrv c
through a prohibitory law in addition to t
7a- the preliminary action in favor of the
to- amendments. If prohibition by statute
t ohonld be sprang upon tho people two or

eavored to effect a redaction oi the idle
irplus in the Treasury and to lighten the
nrden of taxation borne bv the mass o!
tie people.
"The line of policy laid down in tho lasl

specially commends itself to us as a sari
aarantee of prosperity to all classes o

Herman Harm* lian ttUpc tor Klavaa Tears Li
and Iao't Through Yet. pi
Milwauub, Wis., Jan. 18.?The case of pi
Herman Harms, a Buffalo county farmer, ^
who has enjoyed a Rip Van Winkle sleep ^
)f eleven years, completely pnzzles the T1
physicians. In 1877 Harms moved to this th
State from Illinois, taking a farm on the of
Mississippi river, oppoaito Winona, in co
Utica township. While attending his
sick wife one day he suddenly fell asleep t*
and dropped to the floor. He was picked T1
ap by his friends and placed upon the bt
bed, and has not since been off it. He be
sleeps soundly all day,and at 0 or 10 o'clock nc
in the evening rises, takes a little nourish* er
ment and at ones liee down and goes to th
sleep again. During the time he is awake a<1
bo pays no attention to anybody, but ps
drinks a little soup or coffee without mak- nr
ing any remarks, and at once goes sound L<
to sleep. His sleep ie quiet and without to
any apparent pain or discomfort.
When be fall esleep he weighed 180
pounds, hot he has now dwindled to 90
pounds. His pulse is rogulAr and very
Btrong, rather more vigorous than the ,
pulse of the average wideawake man.
His head is very warm, while the fleeh of Y
hla body is cold and has the appearance of cc
a dead man's flesh. While he sleeps one d<
hand is closed tightly in front of him and te
the other preesed firmly against tho right e\
temple, and he invariably sleeps in the in
same position. His eyelids are seen to of
blink very fast at times as if the light w
hurts them. d<
The opinions of physicians as to his
trouble aro very various. Somo say it is
kidney tronblfl, some say he is crazy, and
others assert that his heart la in a dormant ^
state and thAt he will never recover from t
bis present condition. Mr. Harms is fortynine
years old, and np to the time he was
taken in 1877. bad not been sick a day in ?
hie life. He hae five childron. hi
When the story of his peculiar ailment B0
was first published it was so ridiculed that n(
no one took the tronble to investigate the w
case. It is a fact that this man has slept P1
eleven years, And only once hss he drets* P1
ed himself and gone out of the house.
Tho doctors eay that be will soon die, be- ?
cause he Is losing fl -sh so fast. At the
time he awoke in 1882 he was told he had
been asleep for four years, but ho would
not believe it. He was led to the mirror, ni
and when he saw his gray whiskers and f0
long hair his surprise was very great. Hie .
hair, which has not been cut, is now over jl
two feet long and very black. Hla flesh is ?

Charleston, S. 0, Jan. IS.?To-day the
Oharlceton cotton mllla will be sold at
public auction. The (allure of the mills 0
promise to make a revolution in the mann- w
lactnre of cotton goods. A good many ir
years before the war a cotton mill was
started in Charleston. It cost a good *
many hnndred thousand dollars, bat it JJ
taught that generation that Charleston
conld not run cotton mills.
In 1880 a cotton-mill boom etrnck
Charleston. A company was formed and
several thousand people put np $60,000 to 11
etart a big mill. A gigantic building was v;
erected and before tho machinery was ail >c
Eaid for the 160,000 capital had been ex- Q
auated. The mill was bonded for {260.- b
000. The stock went down and hundreds
ot poor people who had invented their
savings In It cither sold ont at fifty cents
on the dollar or held on nntll now when ai
they can't get fire cent* on the dollar. a
The directors say the failure Is due to o
their Inability to net labor. The poor F
whites ol Charleston do not soem to take
to mill work. It is generally thought that
the bondholders will bay the mill, and
that they will get it for a mere song. It is d
not improbable that they will try the ex- a
pertinent of running it with negro labor, ti
Many cotton mills have been ballt in the a
