IT STILL LIVES.
Repnbli l>MKllf] can party still lives. The spring elec tions thisyea' prover that it Is prosperous and wide awake. In Michigan an ? |r ^5^5s<'* em p h a t h i c ? S'ri victory has been won at the State election; in Kansas returns from forty four of the largest cities show that the Republicans carried thirty-ft ve and the Democrats one. It is a clean sweep in that State. Equally decisive was the splen did Republican victory in the great Democratic city of St. Louis. Eight of twenty-nine Missouri towns heard from wont Republican, and five divided the victory between the two great parties. This is a splendid record, considering the rock ribbed Democratic strength of Missouri. Prom other States similarly encouraging reports are coming in. Peoria, 111., which was car ried by the Democrats a year ago by nearly 800, now elects the entire Republican ticket by nearly 1,500,and for the first time in its history the township of Peoria is solidly Republican. Thirteen towns in the Democra tic southern half of Illinois went Republican, twenty three Demo cratic, and seven report mixed results. In Denver, Col.,the Re publicans elected nearly all their municipal ticket, all' the Super - visors and a majority of the Al dermen. There are startling indications of Republican vitality and also of the return of common sense to the working, masses, who were led astray by free trade soph istries a few months ago. It is beginning to be understood that the Democratic parly, now in power, really threatens the des truction of the protected indus tries, with the consequent over throw of American factories, the reduction of American wages and the advancement of foreign in terests. During .the last Presidential campaign demagogues persuaded the wage-earners that their em ployers were growing fat at the expense of the workingmen. So thoroughly were the working masses persuaded of this, so suc cessfully were their prejudices aroused and their judgment blinded that the political temp ters had an easy task and the Democratic party triumphed. The wage earners did them selves. their employers and the Republican power a bitter wrong. They swung the balance of power into the hands of men unworthy of the trust. But the Republi can party is too great to be swerved one iota from the line which it has marked out for itself. Undaunted by defeat, it has taken up its work anew, believ ing that the condition of the country in the next four years will justify the predictions which it has made, and feeling that at the next election its statesmen will again be called to power. The Republican party is the party 6f the present and the future. It is the party of ad vancement. Its policy is not for a day, but for all time. Pour years from now the American wage-earner will have gained knowledge by bitter experience. Till then the Republican party is content to wait.? .Vail and Ex gj press. YOUIIA VE MET THEM.

The splendid Republican victory in the Democratic city of St. Louis, the Republican triumph in Mich igan and the Republican sweep in Kansas are unmistakable in dications of a revival of Republi can unity and strength. The complete overthrow of the Demo cratic-Populist forces in Kansas is especially significant and en couraging.

The fact which is not generally known outside sporting circles is that a gunner who seeks to do the best work he is capable of requires to bo measured for his gun in the same way he would be for his suit of clothes. To facil itate this operation a new ad justable gun has been devised. The bend and cast off of the gun are adjusted by means of screws, and the points of each are placed in grooves running parallel to the line of the butt. The longth and bend of the stock can in this way be regulated to the length of the neck and arm of the shooter, as well as to the various special requirements to which his style of shooting may give rise. .

THE ENGLISH PREMIER, MHIlum Kwart <;ia,Uton?, Ills Homo uj fflH Family. ^ All the world knows of Mr. Gladstone, premier of England, who has ju?t passed Ills eighty-third 'voir, having been born in Liverpool, December 20,1800. Mr. Ulndstone I* called *bv his friends and admirers the "Grand Old Man." and he has fairly won his title In many ways. IIh wax sent to the famous school of Eton when a boy, and graduated in 1SS1 at Christ church, Oxford, taking a double flrst-class, which means that he Mil. GLADSTONE Xsv ONE OP Ills (illA.VD CIHI.DBEX took the highest honors both In llassh . and mathematics. Rt. Hon. William Ewart Glad-tone. ,' !'? C" 10 frivp llim hl? full name and titles, is tho fourth son of the lute Sir .John Gladstone. In IS.",4. when nnlv twenty-five ycara old, Mr. Gla/Nton'e entered parliament, ever since which he has been a member of the house of commons. He was made prime mt ter In 18(18, and remafned In i*>-.veralI years. Last summer ho tool: the office for the fourth time, and now til" stiirdt o.d man of eighty-three is at ihe head of England's cabinet. Mr. Gladstone lives in Hnwardcn castle, whicii means "the hill fort on the projecting ridge." That at least was the meaning of tho original ISriiish name, V Gartluidin, which" in Saxon became riaonHne. and in Welsh, IVnar lag. Miit,there are two castles of that name, and Mr. Gladstone occupies the modern one, which is only a hundred and forty years old at the most. The old and new, however, face each other ?one, a massive ruin occnpted by bats and owls and memories of the pa'st, and the other the residence of England's premier. William tho Conqueror, when he came to England, found Ihe old castle occupied by Edwin of Mercia, and its history goes baclc to' the first or second Edward. Mr. Gladstone, how V?! lkx?"ot kM,P tWs historical rain to himself, but admits anvbody to the | park. He only requests visitors. writer, to keep to the grate) walks, ?n<i I refrnin from writing their names on tho i walk of the old cas; le. : When relieved from the affairs of state, Mr. Oladstone finds no pleasure so great as his home life at Hnwarden. There his family are gatheredCtogcther, ana the great man romps and nlavs with his grandchildren as though he never knew what it was to be blamed for everything that went wrong In all Great llritain and her colonies. Mr. Gladstone is a wonderful scholar, a busy writer and speaker, but the little Gladstone children know him best as a good, kind-hearted grandfather who is fond of fun. He, too, would prefer to enjoy their company rather than to be surrounded by England's great men at an all-night session of parliament. Ufa other recreations are walking, and this is really very funny-chopping down trees. Our great George Wash ington, according to tradition, bad a Hlo" fondness in his youth, but by tho tirai he became president ho had probablj outgrown such fancies. Mr. Gladstone however is an expert woodman, and though he doesn't destroy valuable cherry trees, he goes out with his ax and takes tho keenest pleasure In fell ing trees In Hmvarden park. A visitor to Ins castle one day noticed an ax be hind the door in igreat hall, where it had been loft by the statesman after one of his chopping expeditions. A cu rious ornament f,,r sir h a place ft seems. It may be ...it of compliment to the boy George Washington and Ida hatchet that the -Grand Old Man" pre fers to use nn American ax. There are few men that have such a memory as that whi h Mr. Gladstone fa said to possess.

In the parlor car sat a richly dressed young woman, tenderly holding a very small poodle. "Madam. ' said the conductor, ; as bo punched her ticket. "I am very sorry, but you can not have your dog in this car." "1 shall hold him in my lap all the way," she replied, "and he I will disturb do one." "That makes no difference." said the conductor. "I couldn't allow my own dog here. Dogs must ride in the baggage car. I'll fasten him all right for you? "Don'tyou touch my dog, sir," said the youmr woman, excitedly. "I will trust him to no one." And with an indignant tread she marched to the baggage car, tied herdog. and returned. About fifty miles further on, when the conductor came along again, she asked him: "Will you toll me if my dog is all right ?" "I am very sorry," said the conductor, politely, "but you tied him to a trunk, and he was thrown off with it at the last station.'!
