Republicans were much disappoint
ed when it was first definitely an
nounced that Harry Oouard would not
be a candidate for assembly. He was
recognized as a very strong man.
After giving the matter some
thought, however, it was realized
that no better man could have been
chosen for the vacancy than Dr. F.
O. Henry. Both men are decidedlv
popular and have many friends in the
Democratic as well as the Republican
party. Dr. Henry should be named
to fill the vacancy and he will make
an excellent run.
The looal firemen in their deter

convention will be awaited with in

where both could not win.

a bird of strictly vegetarian habits will
attack another bird, even one of its own
kind, and kill and eat it in the most

Perhaps every order of the highet
warm blooded animals may be in
cluded in the list, from the sloth,
which mutely resigns itself to the ter
rible grip of a harpy eagle, to the
human child, powerless before the at
tack of some bird of prey frenzied
with hunger. In certain districts
eagles and hawks have been shot
smelling strongly of skunk, but
whether that fearless animal really
figured, except accidentally, in their
diet, is to be doubted. If any group of
mammals Is to be entirely excepted it
Is only that of the whales. The small
er gnawers of wood, the rodents, suf
fer most heavily, and untold thou
sands are devoured by hawks and
owls, while cranes, shrikes and ducks
make way with their share, and even
flamingoes will chase and devour a
mouse with avidity.

"‘Contango** anil “Backwardation*

If it should happen—and it does often
happen—that, instead of settling on set
tling day, both buyer and seller (or bull
and bear) prefer to carry over their ac
counts, stock exchange custom has pro
vided for such a contingency, writes E.
S. Valentine, in the Strand. The bull
pays interest on the money he owes, in
the hope that the shares he has bought
will rise. This is caJled “contango."
When the bear, instead of handing ovet
the shares he has sold, pays a rate in
the ho)** that they will fall In price, this
is called “backwardation.” These
rates fluctuate with the state of the
market. It being the interest of each
party to raise or lower prices, we thus
have “bull campaigns” and “bear cam
paigns** carried out with the object each
has at heart. But if, after waiting and
resorting to all the devices that the
system knows of, even to "cornering” or
“rigging” the market, the price does not
fall in the bear’s case or rise in the case
of the bull, there is nothing for it but to
purchase or sell, and pay the difference
—i. e„ the speculator must close his ac
count at a loss. The rate of “contango”
is, as we may here explain, fixed on mak
ing up or contango day. If there are
more “bulls” than “bears,” the rate is
high; if, on the other hand, there are
more takers than givers of the stock,
the continuation or "contango” rate is

the year has most distinguished him
self for his industry and sobriety and
for the prompt and unvarying attend
ance at his daily tasks, especially on the
mornings following Sundays and gen
erally observed feast days. The initia
tive of Gov. Villada. says the Mexican
Herald, will have a good effect in stim
ulating useful emulation among the
working class of the state of Mexico,
which has always been to the fore, es
pecially during the regime of the pres
ent governor, in industrial and educa
tional progress.
Not long ago the proas noticed with
merited commendation the establish
ment, under Gen. Vlllada's auspices, ol
a place of innocent recreation for th(
working class at Toluca. This Is prac
tical philanthropy. The working class
where it sees that an intelligent Inter
est is being taken In Its welfare, will
demonstrate its appreciation by closer
attention to work. The example of the
public-spirited executive of the state of
Mexico is worthy of imitation.

Lancet, have the people been slower to

industries than in England. Notwith

these discoveries to the improvement of

Some False Ideals Set I'p l»y Men Who
Ought to Know Hotter—Buying
lip Legislation.
“Vice will never cease,” says Prof.
William James. ‘ Every level of culture
breeds its own peculiar brand of vice
as one soil breeds sugar and another
cranberries. If we were asked the dis
agreeable question, What are the bosom
fices of the level of culture which our
land and day have reached? we would
be forced, I think, to give the still more
disagreeable answer that they are swin
dling and adroitness, and tfhe indulg
ing of swindling and adroitness and
cant, and sympathy with cant—natural
fruits of that extraordinary idealization
ef ‘success’ in the mere outward sense
of ‘getting there- osi as big a scale as we
can, which characterizes the present gen
The glitted and glamour that sur
rounds the educated men who “succeed,”
who “get there,” who manage large af
fairs, direct corporations and their com
binations, devise flotations, promo
tions, stock deals, hide from the ordi
nary vision the fundamental vice, and
even when exposed, disposes to con
donation. Public opinion visits Its se
verest censure on the mere burglar and
pickpocket who only does at his “level
of culture” what, the financier does at
his, and laments the ignorance, the lack
of education in winch such viciousncss
spawns. Public opinion denounces the
man charged with a public trust who be
trays it; the legislator, of great or small
degree, who sells legislation, and, when
it catches him. sends hirn to wear stripes.
But how rarely, says the St. Paul Dis
patch, is it that the men of education,
college men, who were the bribers of
the convict, are caught and punished.
The ignorant level has its vices in plen
ty, but they are vulgar ones, gratifying
physical desires for the most part. One
has to get up to the higher level of cul
ture to reach the plane where swindling
is a fine art, with college-trained brains
guiding operations.
We have the college man, the student,
in politics, also, where he uses his ac
quirement to further schemes by which
to "get there.” We have them as lob
byists negotiating with uneducated leg
islators for their votes, and as legisla
tors selling their own. We have them
—as Prof. Williams said, there were Har
vard men in journalism who boasted of

Farming u llii.ilne.ss.
“Barn No. 7, Oakdale Farm,” read one
of two men who were riding on an elec
tric car through a pleasant country. The
sign which had attracted his attention
was painted on a large, well-kept build
ing that stands in the midst of wide and
fertile fields; and as the passenger took
in the evidences of thrift and prosperity,
he added: “It must take a man of some
brains to run a farm that has seven
barns like that!”
No doubt, says the Youth’s Companion,
the traveler thought he was paying a
•compliment. His remark was based
upon the representations of farmers In
the comic papers and upon the stage.
Too many persons get their knowledge
of the farmer from such sources. Too
many city people fancy that culture and
intelligence come from living in brick
houses and walking on pavements. To
find “a man of some brains’’ in the coun
try surprises them.
The farmer of the stage and of the hu
morous press is about as near like the
real larmer as the caricatures ot uncle
Sam are like the real American. The
man who buys the gold brick is not the
ungrammatical scarecrow in cowhide
boots and ragged hat, "with a little
bunch of whiskers on his chin,” hut the
man who thinks the modern farmer looks
like that.
Both education and material progress
have changed the conditions of country
life. Schools have multiplied and im
proved railroads and electric car lines
have covered the country with a steel
network. Telephones have opened com
munication with neighbors. The grange
has improved social life. Rural free de
livery has brought the daily papers. Ag
ricultural experiment stations have
made farming a science, and the depart
ment of agriculture itself has become
a great professional school for con vert
ing farmers into scientists.
Moreover, there has been a change on
the purely business side. Farmers now
study markets, and strive as intelligently
to supply certain demands as manufac
turers try to fill other wants.
Indeed .farmers are manufacturers.
Their product is food. The principle ol
combination, too, has come in. Farm
ers’ cooperative associations make and
maintain prices for large sections of the
country, and reap the benefit of it.
Origin of Woolwich Arsenal.
Woolwich arsenal is said to owe its
existence to an explosion. According
to the story the surveyor general gave
orders that some old French guns,
captured by the duke of Marlborough,
should be recast into English guns at
Moorfields. A young Swiss student,
Andrew Schalch, who was traveling in
search of scientific knowledge, hap
pened to be present and noted that the
molds to receive the molten metal
were not dry. He spoke to the au
thorities of the danger, but the metal
was run and the generation of steam
in the damp mold caused an explo
sion, attended with loss of life.
Schlach was subsequently summoned
to the ordnance office, his abilities
tested, and he was then requested to
select a site for a new foundry. His
choice fell on Woolwich, where he was
superintendent of the arsenal foi
many years.—London Daily Chronicle.

Great Dnmnwe Worked in Many Sec

Vouik» Fiiie Shoot*.
With the rapid multiplication of
great flocks of sheep in the far west has
come the grave question of providing
the wool bearers with sufficient prov
ender. Many sheep owners in the west
ern mountain reglops where there is lit
tle or no grass to speak of have parti}
remedied the difficulty by lceding their
sheep on wood!
Not cordwood, to be sure, but on the
young and tender pine shoots which
abound in the foothills and approaches
of the mountain reserves, says the New
York Herald.
The sheep of the western mountain
regions, generally of those varieties
known as “grade” merinos and coarse
wools mixed, are run In flocks, or
“bands,” of 2,000 to 3,000 head, in charge
of a herder, wrho is assisted by a “camp
tender,” “packer” or “camp rustler,”
whose business it is to look up range,
move camp and “pack” in supplies, in
cluding salt for the sheep.
In the journey to the mountains the
sheep are usually obliged to follow cer
tain natural highways, and their prog
ress and the work of handling them are
largely governed by the surroundings,
rn all cases of razing on the pine shoots
the range is cut close, and this close
shaving of the only vegetable cover, to
gether with the loosening of the soil, is
working damage In many sections, much
to the alarm of residents not interested
in wool growing.

The sultan keeps a theatrical com

is an Italian. Arturo Stravolo, of
Naples. All the members of the com
pany, says ih^ Bondcn Express, are re

director. Being the sultan’s own com
pany, all the male members wear a
uniform and hold military degrees.
The tenor has the rank of a general,
the baritone that of a major, the first
violinist is captain, and the horn play
er merely lieutenant. The company
do not perform on fixed days, hut only
when the sultan wishes it. They are
often awakened at midnight, and have
to be rea.dy, dressed and “made up"
within If) minutes to play before the
sultan, who generally is himself the
sole audience Abdul Hamid follow?
the play attentively, and if anything
is not quite clear he stops the per
formance and has the passage ex
plained *o him. Sometimes.. however,
the sultan, in a fit of melancholy,
leaves abruptly, and the nlayers have
to stop and go home. The sultan does
not permit children to appear on the
stage. In a recent production of “A
Doll’s House" two stalwart Albanian
guardsmen acted the part of the rhil
dren. Arturo Stravolo, who is a born
comedian, is the sultan’s favorite.
