The Milwaukee Journal wants Scho field for governor again. Pfister does also. Ex-Assemblyman Gil. Vandercook, who has been doing reportorical work on the Evening Wisconsin, is soon to go on the Milwaukee Sentinel. A newspaper report is to the effect that the “Commoner,” Wm. J. Bryan’s paper, at Lincoln, Neb., is to be trans ferred to Chicago, and that Mr. Bryan will make his future home in that city. Whether the “Commoner” is published at Lincoln or Chicago, it will make no difference; so long as Mr. Bryan is at the head of it and is its editor it will be a very popular paper. George W. Bishop, of Rhinelander, has resigned the position which he has held for nearly four years on tiie State Board of Control. Geo. must have had a tip that someone else was going to have the place at the end of the term, for who ever knew a republican to re sign a good paying position when he was certain he could hold it. George made a good officer nevertheless. The Merrill Advocate expresses sur prise because the Pilot intimated that the steel trust moulds the tariff laws put forward by the republican party, and states that the question between the strikers and mill men is not one of wages but one of unionism. True, but 1 hut is just what the strikers are after. If all are made union mills, thfen the scale of wages of all will be uniform. Lynching bids fair to become a cus tom. In South Dakota the people will not stand it if deprived of their lynch ing. Last winter in that state a young man seduced a girl to her ruin under promise of marriage and when lie re fused to marry her she became insane, and in that condition left her bed of a winter ni*jht and in her night robes and bare feet wandered over the prairie until frozen to death. Thereupon the girl’s brother went and killed the gay young man, and deprived his neighbors of as line an opportunity for a lynching bee as ever was. But they got even with him when they got on the jury, a week ago, and, they convicted him of murder in the first degree. Moral: Don’t take the lynch law into your own hands. It belongs to the public. Dm the Romans, in their day, and do the Spaniards now, manage better than we. to satisfy the killing mania? The desire to take life seems to have broken out epidemically among a numerous class of beings whom from the poverty of language we are obliged to call men. They must he glutted,—-nave a feast of blood and death occasionally. The Romans appeased them with shows wherein men killed each other, or fought with wnd beasts. In the middle age knightly tournaments supplied the grewsome demand. The Spanish accomplish this end through hull tights. The public execution of criminals seems sufficient for the purpose in other coun tries. In the United States this class has been much ignored. In several states executions of criminals are priv ate, and in several others capital pun ishment has been abolished. Of course this class of men is a beastly class, de serving of no consideration, but their deserts will not measure their gettings, aud in some sections of the country they are numerous enough to have things their own way. They may be considered a criminal class, but too numerous to be restrained by law. In the ease of other criminal passions governments have sometimes thought it wise to leagalize means of gratifying criminal passions which are practically beyond tin* possibility of legal control. Perhaps prize lights and bull tights, and public duels would appease the criminal mob, and be an improvement upon lynching. Low Rates West and Northwest this Summer. Via the North-Western Line.

F'or some time past nothing has been heard about our beautiful new electric road, which claimed so much attention only a short time ago. That sometime we shall have a trolley line iu this part of this state, nearly' all believe, but very few of us are looking for it immediate ly. The east is covered with a perfect network of electric railroads, and the system is fast extending west. Just as soon as conditions will warrant it we, too, shall have a trolley. But in spite of the Daily Record's glowing optimism not many people were carried away, for they do not believe that as yet the time is ripe. * * * THE PLAY. Everything reminds us that summer is nearly over and that the autumn days will soon be here. With the first encouraging sign of cool weather the theatrical season opens for another nine months, and we notice that in the larger cities many new plays are al ready being presented. Not having access to all the riches of metropolitan productions, we are hoping that Man ager Cone lias been energetic during the booking months and nas engaged some first class attractions for us this winter. There is no reason why Wau sau cannot have as good plays as can La Crosse, Oshkosh, Madison or Super ior, for there are plenty of excellent entertainments on the road, ready and glad to secure a good stand. The pros pect is encouraging when we see that Mr. Cone has for a starter placarded as new a play as “Lovers’ Lane,” and we hope that this high standard can be kept up. Then, too, public taste here is more exacting than it has ever been before and it dictates what plays the ale wish to see, as well as showing in our improved streets and new homes. * * * All of us have heard the old adage, “When doctors disagree,” etc., but down on the corner of Third and Mc- Clellan streets three who bear that title seem to be getting along excellently. Perhaps it is because they all belong to different departments of medicine, but whatever it is, their combined endeav or is resulting in a very handsome new building, one that will be a desirable improvement to our city. The new home of the Wausau Gas Cos. is also one of the most attractive blocks we have. Just as someone has said, when ever Mr. Plumer has anything done, it’s done right. There has certainly been a great deal of building this sum mer, and all of it has been solid and substantial, from the new Pilot build ing to the cement sidewalk around the post office block. Few people realize what is being done, but just go up on east hill and Took over the city and the new houses and buildings everywhere will astonish you.

It seems that asparagus Is not grown In the tropics—at least it was not grown at Rio de Janeiro when a certain Amer ican gentleman, who had lived several years in the Brazilian capital, went with his wife and S-year-old daughter to visit friends living near Buenos Ayres, a part of the continent where the climate is better adapted to the fruits and vegetables of the temperate regions. At the first dlnuer after their arrival the visitors were treated to some fresh asparagus. The little S-year-old daugh ter was likewise served with the as paragus. but she evidently did not think much of It as an article of food. Her mother tried for some time to coax her to’cat it. Finally the little girl, taken between the rudeness of whispering at the table ar*l the rude ness of not eating her food, leaned over and. with a choking voice and quiver ing lip, whispered to her mother: “Mam ma, It is not nice. It’s raw at one end and rotten at the other.” An Knstiab Explanation. This is the way a prominent English paper explains it: The president of the United States, who receives a salary of £IO,OOO a year, most pay for all the food consum ed at the White House, and the ex penses of getting up an elaborate state dinner are not small. Cigars and wines the president buys, and they must of the best. lie has to main tain his own equipage. The govern ment. however, allows him a valet: al so a clerk, who opens all his letters. All ether personal servants must be engage l by the master and mistress of the White House. Scandinavian English. Sir Herbert Maxwell gives in his “Memories of the Months” the follow ing copy of a beguiling advertisement set forth by a Scandinavian who could “spik Inglis" and who had a shrewd Idea of taring tourists to hts salmon river: Look H! Salmon! Tt* boaonbi* travefen art averted to, that undersigned, erho lives in rjorde pr. YoL den BosadaU county. Norway, short or loog uw, hires out a good Salmoarivcr. Good lodging Cuds, DiSSiX Haas. A Slight Deficit. A weather stained, creaking wagon drew np In front of a photographer’s establishment in a Georgia town. Be neath its body a lean hound came to a standstill. A man clad In jeans trou sers, homespun shirt and guiltless of coat or vest emerged from the vehicle's anterior extremity. Settling his soft slouch hat on the back of his head, he adjusted his lone gallus and gave the lines to the wife and baby within. Be hind these, from the dome of canvas beyond, peered, big eyed and solemn, numerous editions of the lord and mas ter. Entering the shop, the stranger paused before a case of sample photographs and, pointing to one, said, “Mister, what d’yer charge fer takln picters like that?” “Three dollars a dozen,” implied the clerk. Thrusting his hands into his pockets, he turned thoughtfully toward the wag onfu’ of offspring. “Waal, I reckon I’ll have ter wait a bit," he said softly to himself. “I ain’t got but ’leven.”— Harper’s Magazine. One Passenger Too Many. A good story is going the rounds of the offices of the Metropolitan Street Railway company concerning the won derful presence of mind displayed re cently by anew conductor on one of the company’s trolley cars. This par ticular car was bowling along up Broadway recently when it was hailed and boarded by a company Inspector. The official hurriedly counted the pas sengers in the car and found that there were nine. Then he cast his eye up to the register and found that there had been only eight fares rung up. He dis closed his identity to the new conduct or and called attention to the discrep ancy. Slowly and painfully the new hand counted over his passengers and then scanned his register. “Begorra, an you’re roight, sir,” he said and promptly stopped the car. “Say,” he demanded, addressing the passengers in an authoritative man ner, “wan o’ j-ouse fellows’ll hov to git off the car-r.”—New York Times. Cleaning Oil Paintings. An art journal suggests raw potatoes to clean oil paintings. Have a few po tatoes at hand, each cut in halves. The fresh surface is dampened slightly with cold water aud used to rub the canvas. As the potatoes show soil the surface Is sliced off and the rubbing continued. This process will create a little lather, which should be wiped off as fast as it accumulates with a clean, damp sponge. When the whole canvas is cleaned. It should be washed over lightly with clean water from which the chill has been taken and finally the water carefully wiped off with an old clean silk handkerchief. Raw potatoes to clean paintings are frequently in hear say evidence, but this description of the process may be of value. It is sug gested by way of reasonable caution that the experiment should be tried first upou a canvas of trifling value and upon one corner of that. The Collection. While lecturing his congregation rather strongly on a recent Sunday about slack attendance and small col lections a minister of a church in an English city used the following elo quent and forcible sentence: “Yes, brethren, our collection of a little over £3 last Sunday Included no fewer than 500 halfpennies. We all know about the widow’s mite, and I am sure we are very glad to receive it; but I don’t think there are 500 widows in this con gregation!” Influenza. It Is very well known that the In fluenza is not an exclusively modern complaint, but I am not sure whether a curious reference to it by Bower, the coutinuator of Fordun’s chronicle, has been noted. Writing of the year 1420 he says that among those who died in Scotland that year were Sir Henry St. Clair,,earl of Orkney; Sir James Doug las of Dalkeith, Sir William de Aber nethy, Sir William de St. Clair, Sir Wil liam Cockburn and many others, all by “that infirmity whereby not only great men, but innumerable quantity of the commonalty, perished, which was vul garly termed- le Quhew [le Quhew a vurgaribus dicebatur]” (Bower, xv, 32.) Now, “quli” in Scottish texts usu ally represents the sound of “wh” (properly aspirated.) Therefore It seems that iu the fifteenth century the influenza was known as “the whew,” just as it is known in the twentieth century as “the flue.” I have refrained from quoting at length Bower’s explanation of the cause of the epidemic, but there seems little doubt tlsit the disease was iden tical with that with which we are so grievously familiar. Notes and Que ries. Barometric Bees. Whoever observes these Interesting Insects finds it easy enough to foretell exacfly the kiud of weather to be ex pected. At least this is the opinion of many raisers of bees. Generally the bee stays at home when rain is in the air. When the sky is simply dark and cloudy, these busy workers do not leave their dwelling all at once. A few go out first, as though flie queen had sent out messengers to study the state of the atmosphere. The greater number remain on observation uutil the clouds begin to dissipate, and it is ouly then that the battalions en tire rush out In search of their nectar. A bee never goes out in a fog, because It Is well aware that dampness and cold are two fearsome, redoubtable enemies. We do not mean, however, that the bee Is a meteorologist in the absolute sense of the word. Its clever ness consists in never being taken un awares. for it possesses untiring vigi lance. Often one may observe the sud den entrance of bees into tile hive when a dense cloud hides the sun and even though the rain Is not in evidence. —St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO.. HE* YORK. Proved Her Nationality. Recently a bent old lady entered one Ot the Sallna street stores and upon be ing asked what she wished to see made reply In what the clerk judged to be an unknown language. A second inquiry proving no more satisfactory, the clerk excused herself and went in search of one of her colleagues who is of German descent. “Oh, Miss L.,” she entreated, “won't you come over to my counter for a min ute? There’s a poor old German lady there, and I can't understand a word she says.” Miss L. followed and, pausing before the stool on which the would be cus tomer wa* seated, Inquired in her sweetest tones: “Are j’ou a German?” The “poor old German lady” raised her handkerchief to her lips and evi dently extricated something from her mouth. Then, bending a look of the utmost scorn upon the clerk, she ex claimed in a rich and unmistakable brogue: “Garman, Is it? Indade an I’m not. But I’ve got anew set of false tathe, bad scran to thim! An uu if ye plase, will wan of yez wait on me?”— Syracuse Herald. Entertaining- Squirrel*. Alive in his native woods the squirrel is an amusing little fellow, and he will entertain you by the hour if you will let him. You probably become first aware of his presence by his dropping things on your head. Then he plays hide and seek with you as he zigzags up a tree. While he pauses for thought, or pos sibly to wash his face, another squirrel comes scudding along the branches of a neighboring tree, aud away they go, one chasing the other, jumping from branch tip to branch tip, racing up and down the trunk and making the bark fly. Sometimes one loses his footing and falls headlong 20 or 30 feet to the ground, landing there with a force that makes him bounce. You think every grain of sense must be knocked out of the small body, but he only blinks a bit, and, after a moment spent perhaps in letting the stars set that must have suddenly risen before his eyes, he streaks it up the nearest tree after the other fellow. Long after they have disappeared from sight you hear them chattering together up among the leaves like two watchmen’s rattles.— Philadelphia Record. fainting Black Eye*. “The painting of blackened eyes, of which you hear little nowadays,” said a man of experience, “is so well estab lished a business now that it does not even need advertising. A sign which I just passed aroused memories of earlier days within me. It was merely the name of a man who does this kind of painting, with the brief announce ment, ‘Black Eyes Painted.’ “Some years ago such a simple state ment was not enough to enable one in that business to live. The artist whose calling this sign declared is the same man who some years back used to have a place on the avenue farther west, and in front of that old office he used to have an expansive and gorgeous slgu which told his accomplishments in the phraseology which the only Tody Ham ilton after perfected in describing the charms of the best that Barnum of fered.” —New York Sun. sorry He So*- Guest (indignantly) Waiter, there are feathers iu the soup!

Nowadays the captain is the host of the ship. lie is no longer the gruff,! rough seadog in a pea jacket of years gone by. He must observe some of the social amenities; he must talk to the passengers now and then when’ the weather is fine; he must take his seat at table when be may; he must be a kind of diplomat also and possess wit and tact and a patience sublime; he must see that no jealousies develop among the passengers. I have been told of the very obliging captain who, to please the lady who asked to be shown the equator while the ship was in southern seas, pasted a hair across the large end of a spyglass and told the lady to look. And the lady through the glass declared she could see the equa tor "as plainly as A B C.” One other polite captain I have heard of—one who directed an officer on the bridge to “do as the lady wishes,” when the lady re quested that the captain steer the ship over to the horizon so she could see what the horizon was like.—Captain Jameson in Collier's. A Korean Prison. The gate was wide open, and the courtyard was full of prisoners, and the surrounding buildings were old and tottering. I asked the chief, whom one of the two or three listless attendants called for us. why the prisoners did not run away. “Oh,” he replied, “they would be caught and beaten again and kept longer. Now they will get out soon.” But as I looked at them I saw they did not run because they could not. The life was beaten out of them. The keepers brought the heavy red cord with a brass hook at the end and trussed up a man with it to show how the beating was done and then brought us the stiff rods with which victims were pounded over the shins and thighs until the beaten spots were sim ply masses of festering rottenness. There was a room, black, foul, leprous, in which the men were fastened In the stocks. The Black Hole of Calcutta was scarcely less merciful than this. — Ladies’ Monthly. Soapsuds Dessert. The tribes on the coast of British Co lumbia hold a festival in the autumn, the crowning item of which is the par taking of a few spoonfuls of a bowl of soapsuds. They gather in the dingy huts, which are hung with the staple food —dried salmon. For light they stick into the grouud, head downward, a silvery fish about five Inches long, set fire to the tail, and they have a torch, for the fish burns steadily. After eating of various unsavory foods there comes the great treat. This is a bowl of a frothy, soapy mixture, obtained by crushing in a not overclean manner the sapoliti, or soap berries, and squeezing out the juice. This is as much like soapsuds as it is possible to conceive. The natives sip it from spoons of black wood, neatly carved, of which they think a great deal. The Chinaman’* Dress. Those who understand the subject have to admit that when it comes to the question of rational dress the Chi naman has very much the best of it. American clothes are not made for the performance of much stooping or do mestic gymnastics, but the Chinaman, in his loose, easy fitting clothes, is as free to stoop, jump, run or turn hand springs as a small boy in bathing. In a Chinese suit of clothes you can lie down and sleep with the same amount of comfort that you can stand up and walk. Comet* of the Past Century. During the nineteenth century 235 new comets were discovered as against 62 in the eighteenth century. The nineteenth century also beheld a great er number of large and brilliant com ets than did its predecessor. The finest of these were the comets of 1811, 1843, 1858, 1881 and 1882. In the year 1800 only one periodical comet was known, Halley’s. Now many are known, of which at least 17 have been seen at more than one return to perihelion. They Were uiseovered.
