Mr. Harrison has as hard a task be fore bjrn In the at lection of successor to the late Secretary of the Treasury as his worst enemy could possibly have set for him; it is a task too In which the country at large la more directly Inter ested in than anything he baa yet un dertaken. It will be very difficult to find a man willing to accept the place who posses the ability combined with the conservatism of the dead Secretary; and what will add no little to Mr. Har rison's trouble Is the fact that all the prominent republicans in both Houses and Senate who have been recently repudiated by their constituents will be, in fact are already clamoring for the place for themselves. Whoever he se lects he Is bound to make new enemies In his party, and being a candidate for a renomlnatlon that is just what he cannot afford to do. Besides this, the man selected will have to be satisfacto ry to the business men of the country, or a financial panlo my be precipitated. So far the men, who are mentioned for the vacancy, are just those who should not be selected. Representative McKinley can, it is thought, have the place if be wants It, but he has high protection on the brain to so great an extent that his appointment would be a verv great mistake, and one that would be certain to bring trouble. Sena tor Spooner is talked of, but he is a lawyer and lacks the financial experi ence and executive ability which is ab solutely necessary. The others may be bunched in one bad, very bad lot, which includes Senator legal Is, ex Gov. ("Calico Charley") Foster, Repre sentative Cannon and that ex-boss, particularly known for ways that are devious, Stephen E. Elklns. It has been a long time dying and numerous false reports of its death have been given out, but this time the Force bill really is dead, dead beyond all hopes of even a partial resurrection, owing to the action of twelve republi can Senators in deciding that they will not vote for it. It is hard for such radi cals as Senators Hoar, Aldrlch, Ed munds and Spooner to give up the idea of intimidating the South, but even they acknowledge that the thing is dead and that no farther attempt will be made to revive it. In consequence, the legitimate business of the session the annual appropriation bills is fairly humming in both House and Senate. The Senate by a party vote refused to amend the apportionment bill, granting what was so clearly the right of Arkan sas; Minnesota and New York one ad ditional member, to each, and passed the bill Just as it left the House. Sena tors Davis and Washburn, of Minnesota voted with xthe Democrats for the amendment, and strange as it may seem Senators Evarts and Hitchcock of New York voted against it. Brother Johnny Wanamaker will have to get himself a new hobby. His postal telegraph scheme, in spite of the amount of Government money he spent in the publication of his views thereon, is as dead as a door nail. The House committee on Postofflces will not even report it. Representative McCreary, who is re garded as one of the rnost conservative men in the House paid his respect to Czar Reed on Saturday in a manner that was auiet but sever. His commit teeForeign Affairs having been re fused a day for the consideration of its bills; he said: "Never before in my ex perience on the committee on Foreign Affairs, has that committee been re fused a day for the consideration of bills reported by it. The refusal to give committee a day is but another error in the comedy of errors which has marked the Fifty-first Congress." It seems that the republican Senators will never nnish making personal ex planations of their course regarding the Force bill. Saturday Senators Blair and Teller had their turns. Next! Secretary Windom's funeral oc curred here today. AH of the Govern ment departments, the local offices and the public schools were closed. There was considerable growling among that large class who make it a point to at tend every prominent funeral they pos sibly can, because admission to the church was by ticket, and the tickets were only furnished to prominent peo ple. The remaining members of the cabinet acted as honorary pallbearers. The resolution to discharge the House Coinage committee from further con sideration of the free coinage bill is lia ble to make the largest sort of a rum pus in the House at any time, if that committee persists in its present efforts to kill the bill by delay. How not to investigate the silver pools seems to be the real object of the House committee, which is ostensibly engaged in investigation. If this com mittee alurs over its work tue Demo crats in the next House will try their hands at probing it to the Itottom. An Illustration Of the value of extensive and judicious advertising of any article of undoubted merit is found in the remarkable suc cess of the California Fig Syrup Co., which has simply been phenomenal, even in this age of great enterprises. organized a few years ago to man ufacture a new and more perfect remedy than had ever been produced., a laxa tive with original and attractive feat ures, prepared from delicious fruits and health-giving plants, one which would be pleasant and refreshing to the taste, as well as really beneficial to the sys tem, the management verv wisely con cluded to select the leading newspapers thoughout the United States to make known to the public the merits 6f the new remedy, Syrup or igs. Kecogniz ing the Northwest as a most valuable advertising medium, arrangements were made with it for the attractive advertisement which appears in our advertising columns. As happens with every valuable remedy, cheap substi tutes are beincr offered to the ttublic. but with the general diffusion of knowl edge, it is becoming more difficult each day to impose on the public. Health is too important to be trifled witn, and reDutable drucreists will not attempt to deceive the public, as they all know that Syrup of Figs, is manufactured by the California t ig syrup uo. or San ran Cisco, Cat., Louisville, Ky., New York, N.

People of Munson claim to have among tbem the. queerest family as to physical peculiarity In the whole coun try. Jacob Hie , a farmer in moder ate! circumstances has seven children. The oldest Is 16, a bright boy, but hav ing thirteen fingers and thirteen toes- seven on one hand and six on the oth er, his toes being similarly divided. next to him is another boy, 14 years old. As long as this boy Is quiet no one would suppose he had any peculiarity, but the moment he opens his mouth to talk he loses all control of his hands, arms, feet and legs, and they jerk and thrash and kick around as if they were bung on wires. - The boy Is as slow of speech as his limbs are active, and in answering a simple question it Is no uncommon thing for his legs to have carried him a rod or more away before he is able to articulate yes or no. The boy does not seem to mind his affliction, and not only does not hesitate to respond or try to when be is addressed, but Is always ready to begin a conversation on the slightest excuse. He can be seen al most any day arguing with or explain ing some point to some companion, who is kept constantly busy either In avoiding the involuntary kicks or blows of the boy's sprightly feet or in following him briskly to keep the run of the subject. The third child is a girl, who is a hunch-back and a dwarf. She is 12 years old. A boy next to her is deaf and dumb. The win child has a bright red birth mark encircling her neck like a piece of red flannel. It is an inch and a half wide. The other two children are twins, 3 months old a boy and a girl The boy's head is covered with hair enough for a grown person, while the girl twin hasn't the sign of a hair upon the head, the little poll being as white and shiny as a billiard ball. The girl is fat and the boy lean. When the boy laughs the little girl cries lustily, and when his little sister is merry the boy sheds tears and yells. Kvery one of these seven children is handsome and mentally bright. Mrs. Hlers is a fine-looking woman, and her husband is sound physically and men tally. MYTHS OF THE SEA'S SALTNESS. Some Very Interesting and Ancient . Beliefs, i St. LooU Republic There are hundreds of queer myths and traditions given to account for the fact that the sea Is salt. , The Arabs say that when the first pair sinned they were living in a beau tiful garden on a track of land joined to the main land by a narrow neck or Isthmus. When it became known to the Holy One that His people had sinned he went to the garden for the purpose of driving them out and across the narrow neck of land into the patch of thorn and brambles on the other side. Anticipating what would be the consequences of their heinous crime, they bad prepared to leave their beau tiful garden and had actually gone so far as to send the children and goats across the thicket. When the Holy One appeared on the scene the first pair started to run, but the woman looked back. For this the man cursed her, and for such a crime was almost immediately turned into a huge block of salt. (Compare with Gen esis xix., 26.) The woman, more for giving than her husband, stooped to pick up the shapeless mass of salt, when immediately the narrow neck of land began to crack and break. .As she touched what had once been her com panion she, too, was turned to salt just as the neck of land sank and the waters rushed through. From that day to this, the Arabs say, all the waters of the ocean have rushed through that narrow channel at least once a year, constantly wearing away the salt of what was once our parents, yet the bulk of the two salty objects is not diminished in the least. The Pythagoreans believed that the sea was made salty by the tears of Kronos.father of Zens. The Hebrew ex planation is somewhat similar, though more poetic. They believed that the saltiness was caused by the tears of fallen angels. The Athena Messenger asks a Demo crats contemporary to rise and "ex plain why, if the tariff is a tax, can tin plate be purohased cheaper to-day than before the passage of the McKinley bill? And what is of equal, if not srreater. importance in this connection Fa that the plate is of American manu facture made by tin plate plants es tablished since the passage of the "ob noxious" tariff act, and which in the course of a few years will give perma nent and profitable employment to many thousands of our population. How the people are being robbed by our manufacturing barons." The above questions were not address ed to the Noethwest, but the follow ing clipping from the Republican Chicago Tribune fits so nicely as an an swer that we take pleasure in inserting tt: A great flourish of trumpets recently accompanied the exhibition in show windows of '-tlnplate made in Chica go," which were said to be the first beneficial fruits of the McKinley bill But a careful examination of the facts shows that the new industry is yet of diminutive proportions. The biacK (Iron) plates forming the basis of the specimen tin plates were imported from Europe, the pig tin was also Im ported, and even the laborers who did the dipping were imported. The only manufacturing process performed here was the melting of the tin and dipping of the sheet into it. This simple and inexpensive work was done by "im ported labor," of the cheapest kind, and the whole experiment was a mere flash in the pan, there being no works now in operation, and not likely to be any for some time. The whole thing thus far is foreign and cannot be claimed to be otherwise except by making false pretenses. ; ' Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.

' If money must have Instrlnslc value, it is evident that such value should be equal to the money value, else the dif ference would have nothing to sustain It Silver and rrold so up and down in price, but the debt paying power of a dollar never changes. The number of grains in a dollar have been changed by law several times, but the power or the dollar has remained the same. The trade dollar of 1873 contained 420 grains and was a current dollar. When de monetized, it is worth only ninety cents; but the smaller standard dollar of 412) grains, was still worth a dqllar. A pound or copper Is worth twenty cents. When coined Into money it be comes a legal tender for $1.60. A pound of the "nickel" material Is worth about seventy-five cents. Its money value Is $5. How much intrinsic value must money have to make It good? Money is simply a check issued by society. It bears the stamp of the government to show that it Is genuine, and as a mark of sovereignty. It Is a legal tender for debt because the law so declares. Every one honors it because he Is a member of, and has confidence in the firm that issues it. Take the stamp otr or it. whether gold or paper, and it will neither pay debts nor buy groceries. Restore the stamp and you quicken it with a new life and start it on Its circuit through the channels of trade. W. W. Green in Progressive Farmer. PATENTS GRANTED.
