Voorhees in the senato has ever been a joy to the newspaper folk. Affable, frank and viperous, it was always a pleauro to turn from a ronvt Tsation with such stately in and outers us Sena tor "est and talk with Voorhees. What little- Vot told you might all bo wrong and the merest seeds of grkf. Ho was perfectly cabbie, too, ot denying every word of it thy moment it was printed and would, if he found his utterances inconvenient. Voorhees never denied, never weakened. Voorhees stood by his guns. Onco Voorhees gavo mo an interview cn tho subject of tho New York banks. It was uniquo in its fashion of coining, but ho stood by it every word. It was during tho repeal of tho pur chasing clauso of tho Sherman law, during tho extra session in 18'J3, and Voorhees was leading the fight for re peal in the senate. The filibuster was stubborn, and Teller and Dubois, in tho rocky pas- (l( the ncnato rules, wire disputing Voorhees' advanco and hold ing tho n peal at bay. Tho struggle waxed long and tedious, and the banks, in soro strait wmin of them below their reservi began to grow hysterical. In u gust of excitement born of their peril they ono day arose tho bankprcs idents iield a meeting, I believe and indulged in speeches and resolutions to tlio eflYrt that, Voorhees Wns not doing his best to p;is tho repeal. The banker were inrliiMd to regard Voorln s as mixin:? uilish c,f treason fur them, and said .-o. That afternoon I met Voorhees in the senate rotaurant, where he was solemn ly d vacating half shell oysters in com pany with the mayor c.f T ire Haute. "What run I Hay for you touching these banks, wnator?" I asked. "What reply do you want to mako to their strictures?" "I'll tell you what to kit." rM,Hi.rl Voorhees, and ho fixed n grave, though flaming, eye upon me. "Youmayquoto mo as saying about thoo bauka any. thing to their disaster that a wiro will carry or a paper print You can't over do tuy opinion of tboso banks." I took the sonator at his word and prepared and wired an Interview for him that read like a railway collision. Voorhees looked it ovee in the paper when it came and gavo it his full ap prova). "Ifa a triflo weird," he said, "but it's right. It's exactly what I meant " Voorhees is a man of more than sis feet in height and of magnificent pres ence, Dig in person, rich in words, vivid in his thinking, Voorhees was one of the most eloquent Jalkcrs who ever stood in tho senate. Years ago lie was more or less given to foreusio com bat and went gayly to war with uuy who cared to faco him. It was Ingalls who broke Voorhees of this hasty habit of battle and caused tho Tall Sycumoro to resign his com mission as ono of tho scnato minute men of tho Democracy. Voorhees was in tho house when tho civil war broko out and continued to fill a seat in tho lower body during part if not all of Lincoln's administration. And ho got moro or less tangled np with tho Confederacy. Ingalls was awaro of theso low, swampy places in Voorhees' early rec ord. He carefully collected proofs and organized for an onslaught on Voorhees. Tho Sunflower senator's desk was load ed to tho guards with all sorts of print ed and written grapo and canister for tho Hoosier. Voorhees never dreamed of tho dead fall Ingalls had rigged for him. It's to bo doubted if any other senator had the least inkling of what wus impending. One afternoon Ingalls, who performed as a fashion of senate hen hawk, swoop ed suddenly, with a shrill and unexpect ed screech, at Voorhees and gave him beak and talon both. Voorhees was much aroused at this unexpected visitation, and promptly hurled divers epithets of uugraco at In galls, of which perhaps tho softest phrase was "liar and poltroon." Ingalls smiled. Without a word fur ther of preliminary skirmishing he fell upon Voorhees hip and thigh. Ho open ed his desk and began to read letters, papers, documents. For two hours ho hammered Voorhees as man never was mauled in tho sonato before, and he clinched every rivet with n document. When he ended, ' thero was hardly enough of Voorhees left over which to hold funeral services. Voorhees could not reply and never did. IIo "talked" tho next day, but it was no answer to Ingalls. From that hour thero was a senate cbango in Voor hees. He showed nothing of that former hopeful recklessness that sought encoun ter for the mere fun of a floht. And thero was not a desk' in the chamber at Which ho would not shy like a horse. It might conceal tho basis of another Ingalls ovation. Not Superntltloua. "Thero is ono thing about our cook," remarked Bass, "that shows she is a woman of superior mental power. She is above all weak superstitions. For in stanoe, most women have an idea that if one thing in the houso is broken thero are sure to bo three things broken." "And your cook is an exception?" "Yes. When she breaks a dish, she immediately goes to work and breaks two more. She believes in facts, not superstitions." Boston Transcript The Atiuoxpliere. Tho general causes which act on tho movement of tho utmnsphcro are defined by Professor Cornu, in an address lately delivered beforo tho British lloyal insti tute, us gyratory influences, and, when onco tho movement i.s set going, it con tinues of itself and sometimes increuses in amount. In tho first place, Professor Cornu declares, tho movement of the rotation of tho earth is to bo cited, which always brings witfl it a small component of rotation for a displace ment of a gaseous mass in latitude or altitude, and, in tho second place, and as decisive a cause, tho solar heat, which warms tho air near tho surface, or tho clouds. Thus related, and as the ascending tendency of tho heated gas cannot bo equal over tho whole surfaco exposed to tho rays of the sun as much becauso of tho nature of tho ground as becauso cf its iuequalties tho equilib rium is upset in parts and gaseous col umns ascend. When onco gyration is es tablished, tho causes producing it keep it up and augment it. First Sign of Consumption. Dr. C. W. Ingralmm says: A riso of temperature of from one-half to ono do greo at somo period of greater or Jess duration every 24 hours may ho re garded as tho first symptom of pul monary tuberculosis, occurring previous to every other symptom, and beforo tho general health of tho individual is in fluenced to a noticeablo degree. Tho tempcraturo will bo most elevated fol lowing bodily fatiguo. Excluding other morbid conditions that would causo a similar elevation of tempcraturo, it is eafo to diaguoso tho caso as ono of pul monary (or laryngeal ) tuberculosis when this temperature has persisted for a period of two weeks and is associated with loss of weight and vitality, even though thero lias been no accompanying cough or expectoration nnd though phys ical examination gives uegatiyo results.

Accidents Thnt Have Hern Cauel hy the , Devices Set ly Hunters. Bob Michael, .one of the best hunters and most thorough of woodsmen in northern Herkimer county, N. Y., walked against a string ono night and was mortally wounded with buckshot. An old French Canadian trapper aLovo tho Saranac lako region was setting u 17 pound steel beartrap near an old burning ono day and had both arms caught between tho jaws, uiid there his body remained for weeks, being found at last when tho mico and, ants had gnawed his bones. In Africa n curious trap is used for elephants. It consists merely ot a long blado of steel in a four foot log of wood suspended from a treo by triggers. When tho elephant stirs tho string, the contrivance drops, burying tho steel be tween tho victim's shoulder blades. Tigers are captured in India by a bew and arrow trap. A chunk of bait is hung on a stick, below which the arrow is aimed. When tho tiger pulls the bait, the bowstring is loosened, and tho arrow is supposed to find its way into tho ani mal's heart. 1 Baited traps aro not usually danger ous to human life. It is when strings, half concealed by bushes and grass, are hung across tho runways that thero is danger of men walking into them und having bullets, arrows or drop 6ticks 6hot into them. One of tho odd things one meets in forests whero bears, panthers nnd wild cats aro found is a log house, a sort of lean to camp, with an eight inch spruce stick lying over tho cntranco and jut ting off into tho woods oO or CO feet. A hewn plank inside trio Jnclosuro is ar ranged so us to look Jiko a fino resting place for a foot. Beyond tho plank is a chunk of foul smelling meat, burned honey comb or other bait suitablo for tho intended game.

At the beginning of the Danish war, Field Marshal Wrangel, who was at tho head of the Prussian troops, was exceedingly annoyed, at one point, to bo telegraphed not to advance faithcr, and he returned a messago telling King William that these diplomatists who spoil tho most successful operations deserve tho cal-' ows." After that Binnarck ignored him completely, and ono day they met at ho king stable, whiro it was espo cmlly awkward to preserve a coldness, wrangel called everybody "du," una presently he turned to Bismarck, who was seated wxthim, and said, "My sou canst thou not forget?" "No," was tho curt reply. After a pause Wrangel bo gan again. "Mv forgive'; ' "With all my heart," said Bismarck, and tho breach was healed. Killed a I-uma With rocket Knlret. Oeorgo W.
