Mineral Point, Friday, Feb. 20,1885.
Qeo.Crawford. Bobt. M. Crawford,

tion for the purpose of nominating a candidate
for County Judge for lowa county, to be voted
for at the ensuing spring election, will be held at

Mineral Point city, Ist w ard 7; Mineral Polntclty,'
Sd ward C; Moscow' 4; Pulaski 6; Ridgeway 10;
Wldwick4; Wyoming 3.
By order of the Democratic County Committee.
29w3 ALDRO jENKS, Chairman.
The Dodgeville Star urges the
nomination of Cryus Lanyon, of
this city, as the democratic candi
date for county judge.
Levi. M. Vilas, of Eau Claire, has
received the endorsement of the
state bar association as candidate
for associate justice of the supreme
The Milwaukee Journal considers
Samuel J. Randall “one of the
ablest rchuhlican politicians in the
country, and one who stands deser
vedly high among the best men of
his political faith.”
Hon. T. Scott Ansley, of this city
desires to announce through the
columns of The Democrat that he
will be a candidate before the demo
cratic convention for the nomination
for the office of county judge.
Our townsman John Commins,
respectfully announces himself as
a candidate for county judge, sub
ject to the action of the democratic
county convention to be held at
Dodgeville on March 4th.
Hon. M. M. Strong, Alex. Wilson
and J. M. Smith, attorneys of this
city, were present at the meeting of
the state bar association held at
.Madison Ibis week. Mr. Stong pre
sided throughout the entire meeting.
Col. Vilas appears .not to be con
tent with adding now lusture to the
fame of General Grant by his mem
orable speech in Chicago; but is
striving to do him a service of a
more material nature. In the assem
bly on Tuesday last Mr. Vilas moved
that the rules be suspended and the
memorial to congress, asking that
Gen. U. S. Grant lit; placed upon
the retired list, be taken up and put
upon its passage. The motion was
agreed to, and (be memorial passed
The original bill before congress
to place Gen. Grant upon tint retired
list is almost in the identical word
ing of the Kit/. John I’orter bill,
which President Arthur vetoed on
constitutional grounds. On this ac
count it is meeting much strong op
position from the republican side of
the house, as its passage would place
(lie president in a most uncomforta
ble dilemma. To be consistent be
would have to veto the Grant bill
also as he made the form of the bill
a basis for an excuse for a constitu
tional quibble.
The protectionists in congress have
for years advocated a pet scheme to
encourage ship building in this
country. They would subsidize
American vessels carrying mail to
foreign ports, in tin* hope of thus
building up an American marine.
We are glad to learn that the scheme
has been defeated so tar as this sess
ion is concerned. High duties on
material and restrictive and prohib
itory laws have destroyed our ship
ping ; and the first stop which con
gress ought to take towards reviving
(Ids most important interest is to re
peal the laws which prevent its
growth. When this is tried without
avail it will be time enough to talk
of subsidies.
A strong opposition to the pro- J
posed appropriation for an agricul-1
lural college is developing through-1
out the state. The establishment
of such an institution would bo
questionable policy under any cir
cumstances, we think; and would be |
positively wrong under the present ;
unfavorable condition of financial
affairs. It surely cannot be claimed
that there is any great need of such 1
an institution, (.live the people two
years more to think over the matter, 1
and if they then think it advisable
and have plenty of funds to spare,
the next legislature can carry out
their wishes. Meanwhile agricul
ture will doubtless be profitably
carried on under constantly improv
ing methods.
It is said that there is a good pros
peet for the passage of the bill i
before the legislature providing for 1
the appointment of a state bank j
examiner. The many failures of
private banks during the past year
have furnished an unanswerable
argument why such a measure
ought to be passed. The strict sys-,
tern of supervise® or examination
is the chief strength of the national
banking system. The main feature
of this system was found to work
well as a state law before they were
engrafted in our national statutes.
While the national banks have to a
great measure supplanted state or
private banks, is desirable that all
banks should be conducted in the
safest and best manner possible. It
is a duty which the state owes its
citizens to exercise a supervison over
banks doing business under and by
virtue of its state laws.
Hon. D. K. Tenney, of Madison, I
has submitted to the legislature a |
long memorial praying for reform in
the methods of assessment. He would
take the matter out of the hands of
towns and cities, and a state assessor
appointed, with power to appoint a
sufficient number of deputies to j
assess the property of the entire
state. He does not think the ob
jections raised to assessing both
credits and property which secure
them, on the ground of being double
assessment, worthy of consideration.
His great hope of a remedy for the
present evils lies in inquisitorial as
sessments. It is not likely that the I
present legislature will act upon his j
suggestions, or that reform in the
manner of assessment will ever be
brought about by any such sudden
and radical change as he proposes.
Nor do we believe that assessments
will ever be made with any show of i
equality until the obnoxious feature \
of double assessment is eliminated.
With a view of ascertaining the
status of the forty-ninth house of
representatives on the question of
protection. The American Machin
ist published in New York, has sent
out interrogatories to all the con
gressmen that who are not members
of the present house, and conse
quently not counted by the vote on
the Morrison bill. From the ans
wers received The Machinist con
cludes that there will be a small
protective majority in the next con
gress. The Evening Wisconsin of
Monday, February IG, reproduces
two replies to the Machinist “as be
ing fairly representative of the re
publican and democratic sentiment
of Wisconsin. The letters are from
O. B. Thomas of our neighboring
district, the seventh, and Gen. Bragg
of the second, [respectively, and are
as follows:
From Mr. Thomas:
In answer to yours of the 9th lust., in which
you ask me whether I favor a protective tariff,
also whether I favor a general reduction of the
present tariff, I have to say that in relation to the
subject of tariff ami tariff legislation, 1 stand
squarely upon the Republican national platform
of 1881.
From Gen. Bragg:
Your Interrogatories are propounded and en
titled to be civilly answered. My answer to
respectively, is as follows; Ist. lam not in favor
ol a tariff’ for protection. 2d. lam iu favor of a
substantial revision ami reduction of the present
tariff’. Bd. I am opposed to the Randall tariff
For County Judge.
Editors Democrat;—! wish you would suggest

Il Is in order, you intimated, to suggest candi
dates and discuss their merits. With reference
to your suggestion as to course of action, 1 will
say, that having filled the responsible office of
clerk of Court; now. and lor some years past,
that of a Justice of the Pence, ray experience
and inclination lead me to look forward for some
position of advancement, supposed to be within
the gift of my parly, at a time when Republican
ism is giving way to the giant of Democracy,
who has leaped into renewed life, and after the
ides ol March will be directing the vast energies
of the country, when a Democratic nominee
may hope for a lair show of winning at the polls.
I beg leave to state further, that I do not lak>
this stop inconsiderately or gratuitously, but
after having duly weighed the importance of the

properly, honestly, faithfully ami efficiently.
1 Should the presentation of my candidacy, so
far commend itself, as to meet with the approval
ami support of my friends in convention assem
bled, and result in my nomination for the office,
I have a very strong conviction, that I am sure
to meet with all the success necessary, leaving
me nothing more to desire.
Very truly yours, JOHN CUMMINS.
C. K. Dean, of Boscobel, in The
Teller of last week, makes the fol
lowing comments upon the speech
of Hon. Burr W. Jones upon the
“ French spoliation bill;”
* * I think it not saying 100 much to say of
it, though 1 have been an interested and reading
citizen of Wisconsin for forty years. I cannot
now call to mind a speech delivered by one of
its Representatives iu either House, on any occa
sion. which in form, in terseness, in appropriate
ness of language and in strength of argument
contained so many ami such excellent merits a#
does tills speech. 1 think it a great pity that our
congressional district chose to remove so valu.
able a member from the House of representatives.
The fact of his delivery of this remarkable
speech which commanded tho lixed attention of
the House, is not all that is to be entered to his
credit: lie is anew member; and the case* have
been rare Indeed, when new members and
young men—in this case without previous legis
lative experience—has taken such high rauk at
once in the judgment of all the old members.
He lias often been heard on the floor of the
House, and has always commanded unusual re
spect, and better than all, his votes have almost
Invariably been cast on the right side.

its introduction.
The use for a short time of Hall’s Haik

Pauline’s manner was very unsatisfy

j something about her habits and lastts.
Did she play or sing—was she fond of
music, of pictures, of bowers, of the
stage, of traveling? Had she xuany re
lations and friends? Directly or indi
rectly, I asked her all these questions.
Her replies were unsatisfactory.
Either she evaded the questions, as if
determined I should know nothing
about her, or she did not seem to un
derstand them. Many of them I felt
sure puzzled her. At the end of our
little promenade she remained as great
a mystery to me as before. The only
comfort I could take was that she dis
| played no wish to shun me. We passed
; and repassed the house several times,
j but she did not suggest re-entering, as
' she might have done had she wished to

j coquetry ip her manner—quiet and re

i simple and natural—and she was very
; beautiful, and I was very, very much iix

It was not long before I discovered
that old Teresa’s black eyes were
watching us from leshind the blind of
the drawing-room. She must have
crept from her bed to sec that her
charge trot into no mischief. I chafed
at the espionage, but as yet it was too
early to escape from it.
Before Teresa could hobble out of
doors I had met Pauline more than once
in the same way. She seemed, 1 was
glad to believe, pleased when 1 joined
her. The difficulty 1 labored under was
to make her talk. She would listen to
all [had to say without comment and
without reply, save yes or no. I,by a
rare chance, she asked a question or
spoke a longer sentence than usual the
effiort was never sustained. I attributed
a great deal of this to shyness an i to
her secluded life—for the only person
she had to speak to was that terrible old
' r eresa.
Although every word and action of
Pauline’s told me that she was well
educated and well-bred. 1 was certainly
surprised at her ignorance of literature.
I quoted an author, mentioned a book
by name, the r. mark passed unnoticed:
or she lookcl at me as if puzzled by
my allusion, or distressed at her own I
ignorance. Altho gh i had now seen
her several times, I was not satisfied at I
the progress i had made I knew I had j
not as yet struck the key-note ol her

J felt certain ties was a countermove

juiie recovered from the effects of her

tad sometime since ceased to regard

The intelligence that my fe low-lodgers
fere about to quit showed me that to

That same evening, as 1 heard her

She gave mo a quick, suspicious
glance, but nevertheless complied with
my request. 1 closed the door and placed
a chair fjr her.
“Your poor knee—is it quite well?"
I asked sympathetically, and in Italian.
”lt is quite well, signer,” she replied
"Will you take a glass of sweet yvino?
I have some here.”
Teresa, in spite of our inimical rela
tions. made no objection, so I tilled a
glass and watched her sip it approv
“Is the Signorina—Miss March yvell?
I have not seen her to-day.”
“She is well.''
“It is about her 1 wish to speak to
you—you have guessed that?”
“1 have guessed it. ’ As she spoke
Teresa gave me u sullen, defiant Kick.
“Yes.” I continued, “your vigilant,
faithful eyes have seen yvtiat I have no
wish to conceal. I love the Signorina
“She is not to be loved.” said Teresa,
“One so beautiful must be loved. I
love her and will marry her. - ’
“She is not to be married.”,
“Listen. Teresa. I say I yvill marry

“Now' tell me why I should not marry

This yvas alt I could get from the old
woman. She would tell me nothing
about Pauline’s family or tr ends. She
would only reiterate that she yvas not
for love or for marriage.
1 had but one chance left. Teresa's
eager look yvheu I mentioned the in
con,.! ! possessed had impressed me. 1

direct bribery: the end yvould justify

As 1 was so ii ten traveling it was my
habit to carry a large sum of money on
mv person. Idreyv out my poeket-liook
and counted out a hundred pounds in
neyv crisp notes. Teresa eyed them
“ You know what these are worth?”
1 said. She nodded. I pushed a cou

hand seemed twitching with the desire
to grasp them.
“ Tell me who Miss March’s friends

“ Yon will yvr.te at one?”
“At once.” Teresa, yvith a linger

"You had better fake these tyvo

She buttoned them in the bosom of
her dress with feverish delight.
“T il me. Teresa, - ’ I said, coaxiug
ly, “tell mo it yon think if th • Sig

Not for love or marriage! I laughed
aloud as 1 tnought of the old woman s
absurd and oft repeated assertion, if
on the earth there was one yvonian
more than another made for love and
marriage it was mv beautiful Pauline.
1 wondered what Teresa could mean;
then remembering the fcr\or yvith which
she prayed in San Giovanni I decided
that, being an ardent Homan Catholic,
she wished Pauline to take the veil.
This theory yvould explain everything.
Noyv that 1 had bought Teresa 1
looked forward to the enjoyment of
I aulinc’s society yvithout espionage or
interruption. Tho old woman had
taken mv money, and no doubt yvould
do her best to earn more. If I could
ne..sin.de the girl to let mo pass several
hours of each day in her company I
need fear no hinderance from Teresa.
Tlu .He had been accepted, and. al
though 1 blushed at the expedient to
which I had been compelled to resort,
it had been successful.
I yvas obliged to defer any further at
tempt at love-making until the next
evening, as an important piece of busi
ness had to be attended to in the morn
ing Il kept me awav from home for
several hours, and w hen at last I re
turned to Maida vale 1 yvas thunder
struck to hear that my felloyy' lodgers
Inul left the house. The landlady had
no idea whither they had gone. Teresa,
xvho il appeal's always acted as purse
bearer, had j aid her dues and had do- j
parted yvith her young mistress. There (
was nothing more to tell.
I threw myself into my chair, cursing
; Italian guile; yet, as 1 thought of
Italian cupidity, not altogether hopc
! less. Perhaps Teresa would w'rite or
| come to me. I had not forgotten the
eager looks she east upon rny money.
But day alter day passe:! without letter
or message.
I spent those days, for the most part,
wandering about the streets in the vain
hope of encountering the fugitives. It
was only after this second loss that I
really knew the, extent of my passion.
I can not describe the longing I had to
see that fair face, once more. Yet 1
feared the love was all on my side. If
Pauline had felt even a passing interest
in me she could scarcely have left in
this secret and mysterious manner. Her
: heart was yet to be won, and I knew
| that unless I won it no woman’s love
j would to mo be worth having.
I should have returned to my old lodg

I Teresa, if she should l,e faithful to her
i engagements, might miss me. So I lin
-1 gereil on there until ten days went slow
ly by; then, just as I was beginning to
despair, a letter came.
It was written in a delicate, pointed
Italian style, and signed Manuel feneri.
It simply said that tie wri-cr would

“Then you know what the wish—the

“Yes, I know. You want to marry
my niece. Now. Mr. Vaughan, 1 hare
many reasons for wishing my niece, to i
remain single, but yo r proposal has :

Pauline might hare been a bale of
cotton, so impassively did her uncle
speak of her future.

that so.
“My family is respectable. I am well

“You will satisfy me on the latter
point, I suppose."
I bowed stitlly. and taking a sheet of
paper wrote a line to my solicitors ask
ing them to {live the bearer tho fullest
information as to my resources. Cencri
folded up the note ami placed it in his
pocket. Perhaps I showed the annoy

of his inquiries.

“I have had no opportunity. I
should no doubt have done so. but as
soon as our acquaintance commenced
she xvas taken away.”
“Yes. my instructions to Teresa were
strict. It was only on condition she
obeyed her that 1 allowed Pauline to
live in England."
Although the man spoke as one who
had absolute authority over his niece,
he had not sad one word which evinced
affection. So far as that went, she
might have been a stranger to him.
“Hut now, 1 suppose,'' I said. “I
shall bo allowed to see her?"
••Yes—on conditions. The man who
marries Pauline March must be oolite:.?
to take her as she is. He must ask no
questions, seek to know nothing of her
birth and family, nothing of early days.
He must he content to know that she is
a lady, that she is \erv beautiful, and
that he loves her. l\ill this suffice?''
The question was such a s:range one
that even in the height of my passion I
“I will say this much," added t’eneri.
“she is good and pure her birth i

and her only near relative is myself.”
“I am content.” I cried, holding out
my hand to -cal the compact. “(!i\o

Why should 1 not be content What
did 1 want to know about her family,
her antecedents or her history? So
madly did I long to call that beautiful
girl mine that. 1 believe, had t'eneri
told me she was worthless and dis
graced among women. 1 should have
said, “give her to me and let her begin
life anew as my wife." Men do such
things for love!

Italian, drawing his hand from mine,

"Let us go to Pauline and ask her.”
I said, rising impatiently.
“Certainly,” said t'eneri, gravely,
“we yvill go at once.”
Till now 1 had been sitting yvith my
back to the window. As I faced the
j light 1 noticed the Italian doctor look

“Vonr face seems quite familiar to
me, Mr. Vaughan, although I can not

Millions of these useful little imple

pears mysteriously. The housewife or
seamstress sticks the tiny bar of steel
in her dress or in the cushion: when
she seeks it again it can not lie found—
it has vanished as completely as if im

Ami pop goes the weaseft
We have always been puzzled to ac
count for the introduction of the weasel
in this antique quatrain. Possibly our
great-grandmothers, mystified by the
loss of the r needles, concluded that
they roust have been filched by the sly
and noiseless animal referred to. But
nowadays, when the weasel's visits in a
well-regulated household are far aud
few between, no theory of that sort will
bear the penetrating light of scientific
inquiry'. Nevertheless, the needles con
tinue to go- comparatively few of them
retired by active work, most of them
irretrievably lost.
Perhaps a gleam of light is cast ou
this obscure problem by the news sent

in the northern part of this State. A

acute pains in her arms. Dr. Kingman
poulticed the sur a e above the spot*
where the pain was most keenly felt,
and a few days afterward gradually ex

from the muscles bctween'thn shoulder
and the elbow. The patient has not
the slightest idea of how the irritants
got ti ere. This case is by no means
phenomenal or unpreceden'ed. Many
instances are recorded of ladies who
developed a mania for swallowing nee
dles or deliberately pushing them into
their flesh. Hence the query naturally
ari-es whether most of the lost needles
are not unconsciously absorbed into the
sy stems of our wives, sisters, cousins
and aunts. It may be an evidence of
thr benevolent design of nature to thus
supply a needed element of Iron in the
blood. At all events it is a subject
