Dr. TaJmaga Discourses on the Celestial Melodies. BfJghtr Maala at tha Kartn 6mUy Sar- smil Tha Boats of taa BiitMBid ETsrtaatiaa; Joys HmIUr-Th ' Sobs of Ulorr. In a raoaat sermon at Brooklyn Bar. T. DeWltt Talmae jrara a glowing de aoription ot the melodies of the celestial land. Hit text was from BeTelatlons . V: "And they sang a new song." Fol lowing Is the sermon: Nearly all the cities of Europe and America hare conservatories of music and associations whose object It la, by Toloe and instrument, to advance the art of sweet sounds. On Thursday nights 'Exeter Hall of London nsed to resound with the music of first-class performers, who gave their services gratuitously to the masses, who eame in with free tickets and huzzaed at the entertain monk At Berlin t eleven o'clock dally. the military -band, with sixty or one hundred Instruments, discourses at the Boyal Opera House for the people On Easter Sunday, in Dresden, the boom of cannon and the ringing of bells bring multitudes to the churches to listen to the organ peals, and the exciting sounds of trumpet and drum. When the grest fair day ot Lelpalo comes the bands of music, from far and near, gather In the street and bewilder the ear with incessant playing of flute. and horn, violin and bassoon. At Dm seldorf, onoe a year, the lovers of music assemble and for three or four days wait upon the groat singing festivals. and shout at the close of the choruses and greet the successful competitors as the prizes are distributed cups and vases ot sliver and gold. All our Amer ican cities at times resound with orches tra and oratorio. Those who can sing well or plsy skillfully upon Instruments are greeted with vociferation and gar landed by excited admirers. There are many whose most ecstatic delight is to be found in melodies, and all the splendor of celestial gates, and all the lusclousness of twelve manner of fruits, and all the rush of floods from tinder the throne of Uod would not make a heaven for them if there were nogieat and transporting harmonies. Passing along our streets in the hour - of worship you hear the voice of sacred melody, although you do not enter the building. And passing along the street of Heaven we hear, from the Temple ot uod and the Lamb, the breaking forth of magnificent jubilate. We may not yet enter in among the favored throng, but Uod will not deny us the pleasure of standing awhile on the outside to hear. John listened to it a great while ago and "they sang a new song." Let nono aspire to that blessed place who have no love for this exercise, for although it is many ages since the thrones were set, and the harps wore strong, there has been no cessation in the song, excepting once for about thirty minutes; and, judging from the glorious things now transpiring in God's . world, and the ever accumulating tri uinphs of the Messiah, that wag the last half hour that Heaven will ever be si' lent. mark toe lact tnat this was a new song. Sometimes I have in church been Boated away upon some great chloral, in which all our people seemed to mingle their voices, and I have, in the glow ot my emotions, said: Surely this is muslo good enough for Heaven Indoed. I do not believe that "Luther' Hymn," or "Coronation," or "Old Hun dred.' or "Mount Psgah," would sound ill If spoken by saintly lips, or thrummed from scraphlo harps. There are many of onr fathers and mothers in glory woo would be slow to shut Heaven gate against those old time harmonies. But this, we are told, is a new song. Some of the greatest authems and . chorals are compositions from other tunes the sweetest parts ot them gathored up into the harmony; and have sometimes thought that this "new song may be partly mado up ot swee strains of earthly music mingled in eternal choral. But it will, after all. be a new song. This I do know, tha in sweetness and power it wrll be some thing that ear never heard. All the skill of the oldest harpers of Heaven will be flung into it. All the love ot God's heart will ring from it In its cadenoea the floods will clap their hands and it will drop with the sunlight of everlasting day and breathe with odors from the blossoms of the tree of life. "A new song" Just made for Heaven. ' Many earthly songs are written by . composers just for the purpose of niak ing a tune; and the land is flooded with note books In which really valuabl tunes are the exception. But once 1 a while a man is wrought up by some great spectacle, or moved by some ter rible agony, or transported by some ei quisite gladness, and be sits down to write a tune or a hymn, in which every note or every word is a spark dropped from the forge of his own burning emotions. So Mendelssohn wrote, and so Beethoven, and so Charles Wesley. Cowper, depressed with misfortunes un til almost insane, resolved on suicide. and asked the cab driver to take hlra to a certain place whero he expected to destroy his own Ufa. The csb driver lost his way, and Cowper began to thin ot his own sin, and went back to his home and sat down and wrote: "God moras In a mysterious way. His wonders to perturin; lie plants nil footstep In the ttm. Ana rides upon Ibe storm. "Ye fearful saints, fresh eoure take, Tbe clouds yon ao much drea l Are bl witb inerry and aball break la tla-eaiag on yonr bead." Mosart composed h'sown requiem and sa'd to his daughter Emily, "play that," and while Emily was playing the requiem Mozait'a soul went upon the wave ot his own music into glory. Em ily looked around and her father was dead. This new song of Heaven was not composed because Heaven had nothing else to do, but Christ, in memory of cross and crown, of manger and throne, of earth and Heaven, and wrought upon by the raptures of the great eternity, poured this from His heart, made it for the armies of Heaven to shout in cele bration of victory, for worshipers to chant in their temple services, tor the innumerable borne circles ot Heaven to sing in the boose of many mansions. If a new tuno be started in church there is only here and there a person that can sing lb It is some time before a con gregation learns a new tune. But not ao with the new song of Heaven. The children who went up to-day from the waters of the Ganges are now singing it That Christian man or woman who a few minutes age de parted from this very street has joined it All know It those by the gates. . those on the river .bank, those in the temple. Not feeling their way through It, or baiting, or going back, as It they never before bad sung.it, but with a full round, voice they throw their soul Into this new song. If some Sabbath day a tew notes of that anthem should travel down the air, we could not sing it. No organ could roll Its thunder. No harp could catch Its trllL No lip could an nounce its sweetness. Transfixed, lost, enchanted, dumb, we could not bear it the faintest note ot the new song. ; Yet, while 1 speak. Heaven's cathedral quakes nnder it and seas of glory bear tt from beach to beach, and thousand times ten thousand and - thousands of thousands sing IV "the new song." Further: It Is a commemorative song. We are distinctly told that it makes reference to past deliverances. O, how much have they to sing about They sing of the darkness through which on earth they passed, and it is a night song. That one was killed at York town, and with him it is a battle song. That one was imprisoned for Christ's sake, and with him it is a prison song. That was Christian-sailor boy that bad his back broken on the ship's halyards, and with him it is a sailor's song. That one burned at Smith Bold, and with him it is fire song. O, how they will sing ot floods waded, ot fires endured, of perse cution suffered, of grace extended! Song of hailfcong ot sword! song of hot lead! song of axe! As when the organ pipes peal out some great harmony, tnere comes occasionally the sound of the tremulante, weeping through the ca dences, adding exquisiteness to the per formances, so amidst the stupendous acclaim of the heavenly worshipers shall come tremulous remembrances of past endurance, adding a sweetness and glory to the triumphal strain. So the glorified mother will sing of the cradle that death robbed; and the enthroned sprit from the almshouse will sing of a lifetime of want Uod may wipe away all tears, but not the memory ot the grief that started tbem! Further. It will be an accompanied song, some nave a great prejuuice against musical instruments; and even among those who like them there is an idea that they are unauthorized. I love the cymbals, for Israel clapped tbem in triumph at the Red sea. I love the harp, for David struck it In praising the Lord. I love the trumpet, for we are told it shall wake the dead. I love all stringod Instruments and organs, for God de mands that we shall praise him on stringed instruments and organs. There is in such musie much to suggest the higher worship; for I read that when He had taken the book the four and twenty elders foil down before the Lamb, having every one f them "harps," and heard the voice ot the harpers harping with their harps," and "I saw them that bad gotten the victory from the beast standing on the sea of grass, having the harps of God." Yes, the song Is to be accompanied. You Bay that all this is figurative. Then, I say, prove it. I do not know how mucn of it is literal and how much of it is figurative. Who can say but that from some of the precious woods of earth and Heaven there may not be made Instruments of celestial accord. In that worship David may take the harp and Habakkuk the shigionoth snd when the great multitudes shall, fol lowing their own inclinations, take up instruments sweeter than Mozart ever fingered or Schumann ever dreamed ot or lieethovon ever wrote for, lot all Heaven make ready for the burst of stu pendous minstrelsy and the roll ot the eternal orchestra! Further: It will bean anticipative song. Why, my friends. Heaven has hardly begun yet It you had taken the opening piece of musio to-day for the whole Bervice you would not have made so great a miBtake as to suppose thst Heaven is fully inaugurated. Festal choruses on earth last only a short whllo. The famous musical con vocation at Dusseldorf ended with the fourth day. Our holidays last only eight or ten days, but Heaven, al though singing for so many years, has only just begun "the new song." If the glorified inhabitants recount past deliv erances they will also enkindle atglories to come. If at nine o'clock, when the church opened, you had taken the few people who were scattered through it as the main audience you would not have made so great a mistake as if you supposed that the present population of Heaven are to be its chief citizenship. Although millions are already there, the inhab itants are only a handful compared with the future populations. All China Is yet to be saved. All Borneo Is yet to be saved. All India is yet to be saved. All Switzerland is yet to be saved. All Italy Is yet to be saved. All Spain is yet to be saved. All Russia is yet to be saved. All France is yet to be saved. All England is yet to be saved. All America is yet to be saved. All the world is yet to be saved. After that there may be other worlds to conquer. I do not know but that every star that glitters in our nights is an inhabited world and that from all those spheres a mighty host are to march into our Heaven. There will be no gate to keep them out We do not want to keep them out I have sometimes thought that all the millions of earth that go into glory are but a very small colony compared with the influx from the whole universe. God could build a Heaven large enough not only for the universe, but for ten thousand universes. I do not know just how it will be, but this I know, that Heaven is to be constantly augmented. and that the song ot glory is rising higher and higher and the procession is being mu.tiplied. If Heaven sang when Abel went up the first soul that ever left earth for g ory how must it sing now when souls go up in flocks from all Chr'Btendom, hour by hour and moment by moment Our happy gatherings on earth" are chilled by the thought that soon we must separate. Thanksgiving and Christmas days come, and the rail trains flying hither and thither are crowded. Glad reunions take place We have a time of great enjoyment. But soon tt Is "good-bye" in the hall, "good-bye" at the door, "good-bye on the street. "good-bye" at the rail train, "good-bye" at the steamboat wharf. We meet in church. It is good to be here. "But soon the doxology will be sung, the benediction pronounced and the audiense mill be gone But there are no separations, no good-byes inHeav en. At the door ot the house ot many mansions no good-bye Our voices now msy be harsh and our ears uncult ured, but, our throats cleared at last. and oar capacities enlarged, yon and I will not be ashamed to utter our voices as loudly as any ot them. If the first day we enter Heaven we sing well, the next day we sing better. Song antioipative of more light, ot more love, of more triumphs. Always some thing new to hear, something new to see. Many good people suppose that we shall see Heaven the first day we get there. No! You can not see London in two weeks. Yon can not see Rome In six weeks. You cannot see Venice in a month. You cannot see the city of the New Jerusalem in a day. No; it will take all eternity to see Heaven, to count the towers, to examine the tro- phiestogase npon the throne, to see the hierarcbs. Ages on ages roll, and yet Heaven is new! The streets new! The torn pie newl The joy new! , The .song new! - -I stayed a week at N agara Falls, hoping thoroughly to understand and appreciate it But on the last day they seemed newer and more Incomprehen sible than on the first day. Gasing on the infinite rush of celestial splendors. where the oceans ot delight meet and pour themselves into the great heart of Uod bow soon will we exhaust the song? Never! Never! ' The. old preachers. In describing the sorrows ot the lost, nsed to lift up their bands and shout: "The wrath to come! "The wrath to comer To-day I lift up my hands and, looking toward the great future, cry: "The joy to come!" "The bliss to comer O, to wander on the banks of the bright river and yet feel that a little further down we shall find toll brighter floods entering Into it! O, to stand a thousand years listening to the enchanting musio of Heaven and then to find out that the harpers are only tuning their harps. Finally, I remark, that it win be a unanimous song. There will, no doubt be some to lead, but all will be expected to join. It will be grand congregational singing. AH the sweet voices of the redeemed! Grand music it will be when that new song arises, Luther sings it Charles Wesley sings it Lowell Mason sings it At the pearly gate, no good-bye. The song will be more pleasant, because we are always to sing it Mightier song as our other friends come in. Mightier song as other gar lands are set on the brow of Jesus. Mightier song as Christ's glories un fold. Those nations that have always been distinguished for their capacity in song will lift their voices in that melody. Those who have bad much oppor tunity to hear the Germans sing will know what idea I mean to give when I say that the great Ger man nation will pour their deep full voices into the new song. Everybody knows the natural gift of the African for ainging. No singing on this conti- nentlike that of the colored churches in the South. Everybody going to Rich roond or to Charleston wants to bear the Africans sing. But when not only Ethi opia, but all that continent of darkness lifts up its hands, and all Africa pours her great volume of voice into the new song that will be mus'.c for you. Add ed to this are all the sixteen thousand millions of children that are estimated to have gone into glory, and the host of young and old that shall hereafter peo ple the earth and inhabit the stars. Oh! the new song! Gather it all up! Multiply it with every sweetness! Pour it into every harmony! Crown it with every gladness! Belt it with every splendor! Fire it with every glory! Toss it to the greatest height ot majes ty! Roll it to the grandest cycle of eternity! and then you have but the faintest conception of what John ex perienced when, amid-t the magnifi cence of apocalyptic vision, be heard it the new song! God grant that at last we may all sing it But if we do not sing the praiso of Christ upon earth we will never sing it in Heaven. Be sure that your hearts are now attuned for tho heavenly wor ship. There is a cathedral in Europe with an organ at each end. Organ answers organ, and the musio waves backward and forward with indescrib able effect Well, my friends, the time will come when earth and Heaven will be but different parts ot one great ac cord. It will be joy here and joy there! Trumpet to trumpet! Organ to organ! Halleluiah to halleluiah! "Until the day break and the shadows flee away. turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether!" THE FRENCH METHOD. How to Set m House on Fire According to the Latest l'lan. Very original was the mode adopted recently by the inhabitant of a village in the French provinces of setting fire to his own house. Ere starting on a short excursion he arranged a sort of contrivance in a loft at the top ot bis abode, which, as he calculated, would ere long have the effect of enveloping the building in flames. Cats were in the habit of visiting this attic, and the crafty peasant accordingly reckoned on their complicity to aid him in carrying out his plan. Strewing the contents of half a dozen boxes of matches on part of the floor, he surrounded them with pa per and other combustible materials. Ovor the matches a rather heavy stone was suspended from a string, whlcli In its turn was kept in its place by a bit of bacon fastened to its other end and act ing as a knot All his measures having been taken with due precaution, tho wily countryman sallied forth, walking in a leisurely manner through the vil lage and talking to his acquaintances. Some hours after he had left smoke was seen issuing from his house, and his neighbors knowing that he was absent, rushed in promptly, and displayed such energy and zeal that the fire was soon got nnder. It happened that tbey ar rived in time to perceive some ot the matches lying about, and a oloser in spection led them to detect the mode which the absentee had employed for burning his house down. Some time after he had taken bis departure one or two members of the feline race, as ho had calculated, bad made their appear ance in the loft and, espying the bacon, had tugged and nibbled at it until it no longer served the purpose of keeping the cord in its place. The stone bad fallen with a bang on the matches, ig niting them by the shock, and soon the fire had spread to the paper and other combustible material. The peasant had proved right in his calculations, with the single exception that he bad not taken into accaunt the zeal of his neigh bors on his behalf. He has been ar rested. London Telegraph. Dust Bheddluff CaonfAs. Mohair dresses, which are finally sold under their proper old-time name of alpacas, are probably the most popular material worn in the city streets. The only material that rivals it in its abil ity to shed dust is gloriosa, and as this is a mixed fabrio it does not wear as well as alpaca. It seems almost neces sary to say that velvet trimming, or any material which will not shed dust readily, is not suitable in combination with alpaca, which is never a dressy material, not even in white, when it really has little or no excuse for exist ence. It is strictly a utilitarian fabric, and should be made up in simple styles, suitable for ordinary woar and travel. A popular model for a young girl's dress is a straight skirt and jacket-bodice, opening over a full vest of surah. Pale ecru silver gray, golden brown and other neutral shades of alpaca are fashion able, especially in the new patterns, striped aud figured with black. There have been some useful, sensible gowns made recently, of fine black brillantine in simple polonaises over silk skirts, which are entirely concealed beneath them Good Housekeeping.

Four Republican legislators are elected and one Democrat the latter on account of local dissatisfaction. There was great enthusiasm in the city over the result of Reed's election, and a big meet ing was held in the city hall with an ad dress by Reed nnder the auspices of the Young Men s Republican Club. Forty-three of fifty-five towns In the First district give Reed 15,502, Frank 10,830, scattering 45, Reed's plurality 4 672.

Y., fc'ept & At five minutes past five o'clock" this morning two North Shore Limited trains, one going east and the other west, collided with terrific force on the Central track near the station in this city. The engine ot the train going east, was telescoped by the engine of the western train and tbey now stand locked together with their smokestacks nearly touching each other. By tho force of the collision the ten der of tho engineer of the eastbound train was forced back over half its length into a Wagner buffet car and the baggageman. W. A. Fielder, of New York, instantly killed. The tender of the other engine was also driven in like manner into tho buffet car behind it The eng neer of this engine, Edson Bradley, of Syracuse, sustained a com pound fracture of both legs and the fire man, William Houston, also of Syra cuse, received a bad flesh wound on one thigh and severe cut on the head. No other. injuries of any account were reported, although the passengers ol both trains were badly shocked by the force of the collision. MORE WRECKING. Another Desperate Attempt to Wreck a Trala u the New York Central. PouonKKEPsiK, N. Y., Sept 9. A desperate attempt was made last night to wreclc the fast St Louis and Chicago express, which leaves New Y'ork on the New York Central at six p. m. The train was stopped for a danger signal south of Old Troy, which is 300 yards south of the Now Hamburg draw bridge, as two minutes previous the flagman had found several ties standing endways in the curve near Old Troy, and when he took bold of one end ot them to remove them he was fired upon from the bushes on the east side of the track. Knowing that the fast express was nearly due he ran southward and set the signal which stopped the train. The flagman said tbe ties stuck up above the rails and would certainly have thrown the train from the track. The fast train was composed of seven or eigh t sleeping cars, all full, two or dinary coaches and a baggage car. 1 here were eight ties on the up main track. There were also two ties placed alongside of the rail towards the south so as to ditch the train. Tbe train passed here half an hour late. Troublesome Necroee. Jackson, Tenn., Sept 9. Negroes for some time have been cutting the wire fences around the pasture of J. R. Young, a planter. He threatened them. and about two weeks ago ' four or five negroes drew their guns on him. when he bad tbem arrested and they were placed under bond. Last night a mob of nearly fifty negroes went to Young s house and fired forty or fifty shots into the house. Believing they had killed the family, they began shoot ing the hogs and cattle Young has secured a posse of friends, and if they meet resistance they are going to ex terminate the negroes. Serious trouble is feared. " More Arrests. Albany, N. Y., Sept 9. The mystery attending the apprehension of John Reed, who was detained in Superin tendent Bissell's office all day on sus picion of being one of the Central train wreckers, was partly explained by the arrest of John Kiernan, a West Albany freight .brake man, and John Corder, a freight conductor, both married and striking Knights, belonging to local as sembly No. 1074. These men were ar rested at their homes after a thorough search of the city for them by a dozen detectives. Krw Tork end Reciprocity. Nkw Yokk, Sept 9. At a meeting of tbe Produce Exchange, with about fif teen hundred members and merchants present, rec prooity was advocated by Consul-General Williams, of Ha vana. At the close of his remarks resolution was adopted that the New York Produce Exchange as a body sought Congress to urge such acts of legislation or diplomatic negotiations as would ensuro tbe enlargement of these foreign markets to American products. It was resolved to telegraph the resolu tion to Senators Evarta and Hiscock at Washington at once. Kacape Prevented. Fort Watse, Ind., Sept 9. A bold attempt was made yesterday afternoon by a number of prisoners confined in the county jail in this city to overpower the keeper and effect a wholesale jail delivery. James Bennett, who had just been sentenced to two years in the pen itentiary, knocked down one of the keepers and mado his escape. Before any of the other prisoners bad got out the keeper was joined by the sheriff and several deputies and the mob was suppressed and the ringleaders band- cuffed and placed in dungeons. Ben nett has not yet been recaptured. Killed m the Track. Kansas tur, Kan., toept 9. James A.

Market EfTee f Can ada's Doty oa Our Low Exports MrKla leytaaa" and tha Interests of the Parmer. By her recently adopted tariff laws France collects a duty of fifteen cents a bushel on grain imported from other European countries; but on grain from the United States the new duty is thirty-three cents a bushel, which is prac tically prohibitory. Why this discrimination against ns? It is a dose of "McKinleyism" which France bas prepared for us to pay us back for the high tariff folly of the party in power. The "McKinley Ad ministrative Customs bill," which went into effect on August 1, lays great diffi culties in the way of buying and im porting the foreign goods that we need, and France was very much wrought up over it, as well as over the other and still worse McKinley bill which is yet to come France has simply given us a dose of the McKinley medicine; but it must be noticed that it is our farmers who have to take it; and thus, as Blaine points out "our foreign market for breadstuffs grows narrower." But what will be the precise effect of this French duty on grain? The latest reports from tho Treasury Department present the following in teresting facts: Our exports of corn and wheat to France for the fiscal year ended June 30, were valued at 6,910,000, and for last year $9,871,000. Here is an average of eight and a half million dol lars cut off from our farmers' foreign market at a single stroke, and " 'T was all on account of McKinley." The effect of these French duties very clearly show by comparing our exports to France in June, 1889, witb the same month this year. The duty has but re cently been imposed in that country, but already for the month of June there is a most remarkable falling off in our exports of wheat and corn to France. Our exports of these iwo article to that country for the two months are as fol lows: June, 1889, corn, 801,653 bushels; wheat, 165.486 bushels. June, 1890, corn, 21,441 bushels; wheat, 24,000 bushels. The value of these exports fell from S507,128 in June, 1889, to the pitiful sum of (30,875 in June, 1890. That is how "McKinleyism" narrows the forei, market for our breadstuffs. In the face of a fact like this what is the use for McKinley to try to humbug the farmer by raising the duty on wheat from twenty cents a bushel to twenty- five cents, and on corn from ten cents to fifteen? Of these two articles we imported dur ing the fiscal year ended June 30, just $113,211 worth from all countries. In attempting to shut out that trifle Mc Kinley has injured our foreign market for wheat and corn more than four times as much for a single month and for a single country. lo put tho matter in a still more striking light, for every dollar's worth of corn and wheat that he prevents from coming into this country from all other countries he cuts off sixty dollars worth from the farmer's foreign market in a single country. And such is the quality of "McKin leyism!'' But it is not b ranee alone that is pay ing us back our "McKinleyism" sixty- fold. Canada takes a band in the busi ness, too, and has gotten her mills of re taliation a-grindmg. Among other re taliatory duties which McKinley has given Canada cause to impose is the duty of throe cents a pound on our lard. We exported to "British North America" for tho fiscal year 1889 lard to the amount of 14,148,000 pounds; for the year 1890 the export was 5,485,000 pounds. As the result of Canada's duty on lard our farmers are shut out from that mar ket It is reported that N. K. Fair banks & Co., the extensive pork pack ers of Chicago, have leased premises in Montreal and w.U go into the lard busi ness there. The report states that they could not sell their American lard in Canada owing to the three-cent duty. Of course Canadian farmers will furnish the hogs for this Montreal establish meat This example shows not only how "McKinleyism" narrows the market for our farm products, but also bow it drives American capital out of the country. Was it in view of a fact like this that McKinley said: "This bill is framed in the interest of the people of the United States?" Let tbe farmers keep an eye on "Mo- Klnleyisml " M'KINLEY'S FINE HAN D. One of His Methods of Protecting;' aa Article Not Manufactured in This Coun try. Interest in the McKinley Tariff bill has attracted attention away from the other McKinley bill which has already become law. This is the so-called Cus toms Administrative law, which was passed several months ago, and which went into operation on the 1st of Au gust This law relates only to the manner of calculating and collecting duties, but it results in many cases in a very large increase of tbe duties collected. Some of the main features of the law are that the duty must be collected not only on the cost of the merchandise itself, but also on the packages and on tbe cost of freight on the other side for shipment to the sea port; and furthermore it is provided that nothing shall be allowed for waste by breakage or o her wise. A caso has already come to light in New York which shows how greatly this law may increase duties. The Eisner A Mendelson Company, of that city, are the agents for Johann HofTs malt ex tract, a kind of medicinal beer which is made in Germany. This company has recently received two shipments from Berl n of equal quantities, by two different vessels. One of these vessels arrived in New York July 1L Tbe duty paid on the invoice of malt extract brought by this vessel was 659.70; that is, 50 per cent on the value of the malt extract and 3-1 per cent ad valorem on tbe bottles. On August 4 the second consignment of malt extract arrived, and the duty collected under tbe new law was 91, 217.2a Tho cost of the straw wrappings around the bottles, tbecostof the boxes, the cost of packing and the freight were all inclukiiin the duty collected; and It was this that made the difference. Mr. Eisner said in regard to the mat ter: "This sort of treatment is very dis couraging. The increase in tbe duties knocks all the profit out of our business. No increate in the duties was required or tho p-cb.clion of the domestic pro ducers of malt extract, because they have In-en underselling ns for years onr pr'cv tting $3.60 per dozen, while the price of the domes tio article :s bat twodul arw That -h nUat McKinley can do when be U - ii t hall trying.1 Wait till he gets in h.s line work with the real Mc Kinley li. 11 for decreasing iweno.es by acreujii; auuea.

The Siamese are so near the eqnator that tbqy have about the- same hot weather the year', round. Every man,, woman and child in Bangkok take plunge into the river at least three times a day. Ot the 700,000 people la the city a Ipast 50. 000 live in floating houses, and inasmuch as the summer costume oQthe lower classes consists of a garment about tbe size of a Turkish towel, it is not much trouble for tbem. to go ia bathing. Tbey bathe on the steps of their houses and stand np to tbe waist in the water, grunting delight tedly as they pour bucketful after bucketful over themselves and their neighbors. The Burmese man and wo man take a bath ewery night after din ner. This bath ia. merely pouring- water over the person. Soap is never used and particular care is taken not to wet the hair. At New Year's, when tbe weather is as hot as our lammrir, these pejople have what they call a water feast, and at this time tho whole nation ' throws water npon one another. All the pretty girls go out with buckets, and the boys have squirt guns, and for three days there is nothing but water-eplashing. The foreigners of Rangoon also en gaged in this, and the Chinese celebrate the feast with the rest. One Chin am aa rigged np a hydrant with a tw-inca pipe during the last feast, and as bis, house was on the main street, he had the bulge, as it were, on every one else. He engaged a coolie to work the mar- chine all day, and, as he was selling: water-works, he had a good advertise ment in addition to his fun. A swell Englishman arrived in Bur-' man last year during this toast He went to eali on on of the leading men of Rangoon in tall silk hat and black clothes and was met at the door by a girl with a bucket of water. The girl asked bim in Burmese whether be was observing the water feast, and be, sup posing that she wanted to know whether he had come to see her father, nodded his bead, and with that nod this whole bucket of water went over his silk hat and down the back of his collar, com pletely drenching him. During tbe same time another party of Englishmen were told that some girls were coming to throw water on tbem. They had the servants bring out the bath-tub and put it on the verandah, and when the girls came they got possession of the bath-tub and splashed the En glishmen until one of tbem, rushing in, seized one of the maidens and, lifting her up, dropped her into the tub. This was considered very impolite, and the young man who did it suffered by re ceiving no further attention irom tne Burmese beauties. Philadelphia Press. WOMEN AS TRADERS. Mrs. Cornythe's Importance In the Affaire of Klsmarck Archipelago. The Suffrage Journal of Manchester contains, among other items of interest, an account of tbe marvelous success as a land-owner and trader on an extensive scale of a Mrs. Corny the, a lady of some what mixed nationality, being the half caste daughter of a former American Consul at Samoa, and having been mar ried to an Englishman. After his death she settled in New Britain, one of tho largest of the group of islands now known as the Bismarck Archi pelago, and there effected latge purchases of land about ten years ago. She holds collectively more than the whole number of traders and land own ers settled on the island, her property and that of the firm of which she is the head amounting to 150,000 acres, while that possessed by German merchants is only 22.000 acres, and by other foreign ers 8,500. She owns the only steamer trading among the islands of tbe Archi pelago, and exports large quantities of copra, pearl shell, beche-de-mar, and South Sea Island cotton grown onherown plantations. She employs fifty Euro peans and several hundred natives. Tbe trade with tho natives is all carried on by barter; and the imports consists of tobacco, pipes, axes, hammers, knivesv nails; also kerosene, lamps, beads, cot ton goods, tinned salmon, sugar, floor and salt. Now Britain in about SOU miles long and thirty or forty broad, situated in the east of Now Guinea, is about six degrees south. The interior is aooun tainous, but the soil on tho 'slopes of tbe mountains is described as being one of the richc-t in tho world and capable of growing any kind of tropical product. Timber ir-i are plentiful, and there kt a good sii '.y of water. Tbe native in habitants aru chiefly of Papuan origin, and follow a curious custom also found, in New fli.inea of shutting up their daughters in cages till they are mar ried. They are filthy in their habits, cruel and treacherous, and practice tbe lowes vices of savagery, infanticide and cannibalism. The Archipelago, of which New Brita:n and New Ireland are the chief islahil.-s with a rctltitude of smaller inlands, nominally belong to Germany; but the trade carried on with them is far more in the hands of En glish and Americans than of Germans.
