Among tin; notable speeches last week in the legislature was that made by Senator A. L. Kreutzer against the appointing of commissions. It was timely and to the point. Mrs. Grover Cleveland does not want her husband to run for the presi dency again. Mrs. Cleveland is a woman of very good judgment and the ex-president will do well to heed her advice. The Merrill Advocate has let loose its dogs of war again upon Gov. LaFol lette, but the Pilot will wager that the Advocate will be tearing its nether gar ment to get on to the La Follette wagon next year. State Senator McGillivray is being dressed down very thoroughly by the Milwaukee Sentinel. The senator appeals to be very angry which is suf ficient evidence that the Sentinel must be twitting on facts. It is the opinion of many that La- Follette has already commenced his next tight for the governorship of Wis consin and that the railway commis sion and the primary election bills will be the principal planks in his platform. This time he is figuring to have a legis lature that will back him up from “Soda to Hoc.” Still there are 3ome who have been known to count their chickens before they are hatched. Governor LaFollette has again turned out to be a “populist,” if the stalwart press of the state is to be re lied upon. These charges should be probed to the bottom by the legislature, and if the Governor is found guilty of such a henious offense, he should be compelled to stop at the Hotel Pfister for one month, or until such time as he can be trusted to do the bidding of the stalwarts. Eh, Mr. Pfister ? The Milwaukee Free Press is the poorest gun of all that is carried on the battle ship “Half Breed,” either that or .the marksman is so all-lired poor that he can’t come within seeing distance of any mark that he tries to hit. The Pilot bases its statement upon the many shots tired from that gun at lion. Neal Brown and Senator Kreutzer. The gunner might as well tire blank cartridges ; the effect would be just the same. Orasmus Cole, ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin, died last Tuesday. He was a prominent figure In public life from 1817 until 1892. Members of the legislature in 1855 joined in asking him to become a candidate for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and among the names of those who made the request was Hon. \V r . D. MtJndoe, of-this city. The funeral took place at Madison on Thursday. The assembly Saturday advanced to a third reading a bill which prohibits the sale of game at all times and allows spring shooting. One member who voted against it on account of the lirst section remarked in a speech that the bill would operate against the reputa tions of a great many hunters, and that many of those who in other years had returned from their trips through the north with something to show for their efforts, would now return to civilization empty handed. A press dispatch from Madison says that the Wisconsin blue book for 1903 will be ready .‘or distribution within a few days. The work of compilation lias been completed, the proof read and the book is now being bound. This is the first blue book that has been com piled by the state commissioner of labor statistics as provided by the law passed at the last session of the legislature. It differs from books of other years iu that it is more complete and contains in addition to usual information per taining to the various departments of state government, some new and valu able matter concerning manufacturing and agriculture. Some of the old fea tures have been revised aud brought down to date. A feature which will be appreciated by those who make fre quont use of the book is a carefully pre paied aed intelligently arranged index, one that does not require another index as was the ease with the book of 1902. Towns’s Test. Charles A. Towne, who was nomin ated by the Populists for vice-president in 1900, with the expectation that tie Democratic convention would endorse the nomination, and who unselfishly withdrew in the interests of harmony when the convention declined to “t tse,” recently delivered a speech be fore ihe Brooklyn Democratic club, in which he expressed the opinion that the Democratic party should turn its face to the future and permit the “dead past to bury its dead.” He said: To restore the ancient landmarks of the constitution, to wrest from private interest the control of the government and bring the people to their own again; is not this a program in w h ch all genuine Democrats can unite? And if a man honestly joins in such a cause, is he not a Democrat?

If a man is sincerely with me now, I have not the right either to deny him the glory of fighting nor to deprive myself of his assistance in our common cause, on the ground that we were not agreed upon a former occasion. There is no disputing the correctness of Mr. Towne’s position. The test of a man’s Democracy should be, are you with us now, not were you against us in 185)0 or 1900. It would be f lly, of course, for the party to turn its machin ery and its leadership over to the new recruits, but it should bar no man be cause he has not agreed with or sup ported it iu the past.—Milwaukee News Women Hnve no Influence in Politics. Justice Julius Mayer of the Court of Special Sessions, who addressed the New York State Woman’s Republican Association a few days ago on “How Cun Women do Good in Politics?” isen titled to a great deal of respect for tell ing his audience that women had no political influence. It was precisely the dose they needed. Here is this body of women every campaign beg ging money, getting up rallies and tramping through the slums distribut ing party literature, and yet they do not ask for the suffrage and do not allow the subject to be discussed at their meetings. They are of about as much consequence politically as a band of Chinese parading the streets with lighted punksticks. The party would be fully justified iu repudiating them, and its leaders would render them a service by speaking as plainly as Justice Mayer. “The nieu have made up their minds on political questions,” he said “The proper work for you is to seek to influence the coming generations ’’ In other words, "Go home and talk to the children; you are in the same level with them.” Now. if these women believe that the safety of the state depends upon the success of the Republican party, let them leave politics to the men who can’t do any worse than they already hove done —for a while longer and de v >te their energies to secure the ballot. They can then work for their party with some advantage to it and some dignity to themselves Instead of put tering around as now, making them selves a nuisance and a laughing stm-k in their vain efforts to influence the men, they can do their w-rk among those of their own sex. On election day they can go to the polis as the peer of auy American citizen, and no man there, even the highest and mightiest, will dare to say, “You have no political influence.'’ —Ida Huslcd Harper in Sew York Sun.

A number of the city’s police were called yesterday to clear a crowd that had blocked the sidewalk at 313-315 Jackson street, the Callies paint store, i The crowd was at first thought to be i attempting to take Mr. Callies’ life for cutting prices down so low as to put competitors iiv the shade, but it was found to be only a peaceable lot of citi zens making an onslaught on the excel lent bargains offered by him in every thing in the wall paper, paint, oil, glass varnish or brush line.

SATURDAY at From the Walla Walla Union, a paper sent to the Pilot from the state of Washington, we should judge that the season there is about as far ad advaneed as in this section. We notice from a long article, about the crops, that trees are not fuiiy leaved out yet and in many places they are having frosty nights. The Wausau Wochenblott had a very serious time with its gas engine the other day. It was caused by the break ing of a pin that held the crank shaft. The engine as a result was reudered worthless and Miss 1 jeon a Hintze com positor was hit by a piece of iron from the engine and knocked insensible, she was not seriously injured. The large plant of the Scofield Lum ber company, at Superior, was entirely destroyed by lire last Sunday morning. It was estimated to be worth $75,000 and was insured for $66,000. The mill had a capacity of 260,000 per day, and there was 50,000,000 feet of logs on the bank to be sawed. Whether the mill will be built up again is not known yet. A dispatch from Washington says that the bureau of forestry will this year make a study of forest tires and attempt to provide a remedy for their prevention H. J. Tompkins, of the bureau and a corps of assistants have already begun work in Wisconsin. The states of Minnesota, New York and Pennsylvania have efficient systems for the prevention and coutrol of these fires. The present effort was started mainly through the loss of about $1’,000,000 worth of timber in Oregon and Washington last summer. , "It has been decided upon to put in a water wheel at the Alexander Stewart Lumber company’s saw mill and with other machinery necessary, to furnish electricity to those in want of small powers. This is something Wausau has needed for a good many years While our water works has been able to keep many motors going in the past, the plant has grown to such propor tions, and with so many motors and the street sprinkling, etc., the power is get ting to be very unsatisfactory and the work to be greater than tl e pumps at the station can well take care of, so the new power comes just in the nick of time and w ill be a great con venience in otfr city. $38.36 To California.

In the wilds of South America many rope bridges exist, and in writing of them a traveler, who published through Messrs. Longmans ‘•The Great Moun tains and Forests of South / merlca,” says: “There being no trees here, such bridges as were necessary were usual ly constructed of a couple of ropea stretched across a chasm, upou which was spread a rough kind of matting made of pliant brushwood or a sort of rush. Such bridges swung about fear fully and cracked under the foot as If about to give way. Often I held my breath while passing such a bridge, momentarily expecting the rotten con trivance to part in the middle. There was pleuty'flf evidence in the skeletons of horses and mules on the rocks be low that accidents not infrequently oc curred, bat I was assured that not many men were lost, which, of course, was an exceedingly comforting assur ance, especially as I noticed that the guides were careful to see that either I or George was the first to cross these confounded structures. At one of these plaves we saw on the rooks 300 feet below the skull and hones of two men who had been lost about eight years before.” Snmlces Waste Kittle Time Eating. A serpent will go for weeks, some times even for mouths, without feed ing. Then It may take three rabbits or ducks, one after the other, at a single meal and afterward become torpid while digestion proceeds. When, after a sufficient period of fasting. It gets disposed to eat and a rabbit happens to be introduced into its cage. It may plainly be seen that the rabbit’s pres ence Is quickly noticed by it. The snake will begin to move slowly about till It has brought its snout opposite the rabbit’s muxxle. Then. In an instant. It will seise the rabbit's head In its mouth, simultaneously coiling its pow erful body around it and crushing it to death at once. The action is so instantaneous that It is impossible for the rabbit to suffer. Certainly It can suffer no more than when killed by a poulterer. The snake does not 'mmedlateiy uncoil Its folds, but continue* for a time to hold its vic tim tightly embraced, sometimes rock ing itself gently to and fro. Then it slowly unwinds its huge body and once more takes the rabbit’s bead in its mouth and swallows it. SaperatltiSßi Aboil Bread. In Brittany when a housewife begin* to kr**e*d dough she makes a erosa with her right hand, the left being placed in the trough. If a cat enter* the room, It is believed the bread will not rise. It is supposed that certain women can cause the dough to multiply itself. On the coast of the channel the dough Is adjured to Imitate the leaven, the mil ler and the baker and to rise. The oven 1* a sacred object and con nected with crowds of superstitions Tbe oven is dedicated, with ceremo nies. In certain places In Brittany the wood is watered with blessed water. Bread must Dot be cooked on certain days, as on Holy Friday or during tbe night of All amts, when tbe ghosts would eat It The lalriSsettoi •( Tirki. Forks are articles of stt'h common household necessity to us that we hard* ly realize that there was a time, and cot so long ago either, when forts were entirely unknown. A knife was used at tbe table to cut cp food, but tbe food so cut was afterward conveyed by the fingers* to the mouth. Rich mod poor alike wers accustomed to this method and so thought It perfectly correct It was about tbe year 1600 and in tbe reign of James L when forkv were first Introduced inie England. This “piece of refinement.’* we are told, waa de rived from tbs Italians. Haw Mm Fall When Shot. Nearly every one Is fumillar with the traditional stage fall, where the victim of a supposed death shot strikes an at titude, clasps his hand to his heart, stiffens every joint and muscle, breathes hysterically and goes down like a log toppled over from the end. Another popular yet erroneous notion Is that men shot through the vitals leap into the air and go down in a dra matic attitude. Sometimes men are found on the field in striking positions, but often an examination shows that the position was taken after the fall. Asa rule a man who is bit above the hips sinks down. The slighter the wound the more commotion, for the body instinctively resists, Just as it does when one slips or Is pushed or col lides with some object. Rut a wound in a vital spot weakens the resistance and men sink at once or reel and tum ble with very little self control. Cruulns the Bar. Tennyson’s famous poem, ‘'Crossing the Bar,” was written, says the present Lord Tennyson, in the poet's elghty flrst year, “on a day In October when we came from Ald worth to Farring ford. Before reaching Farringford he had had the ‘moaning of the bar' in his mind, and after dinner he showed me the poem written out.” “That is the crown of your life s work,” said his son, who was the first man after the poet to read “Crossing the Bar,” and who passed the first criticism upon it in such fitting and generous language. “It came in a moment," said the poet, and he explained the pilot ns the Di vine and Unseen who 1* always guid ing us. A day or two before lie died the poet, calling his son to his licdslde. satd. “Mind you put ‘Crossing the Bar' at the end of all editions of my poems.” Hew Air Acts on Mercery. When the air around us become* con densed-shrinks into a smaller volume —lt becomes heavier, puts greater pres sure on the surface of tbe mercury and makes it ascend In the tube; then the mercury is aid to rise. When the air expands-- swells into a larger volume— It becomes lighter, tbe pressure on the mercury Is less, the mercury sinks in the tube and the barometer is said to fall. Therefore every change of height of the quicksilver which we observe is a sign and measure of a change In the volume of air around us. Shsald Earth Become Plat. A scientist says that "if the earth was flattened the sea would Iks two miles deep all over the world.” ADd an Oklahoma editor gives .Hit the fol lowing: “It any man Is caught flatten ing out the earth, üboot him on tbe spot and don’t be too blamed particu lar what spot.
