Washington, June 15, 1891.
Representative Hayes, of Iowa, who
is a wide-a-wake democrat, stopped
in Washington long enough to leave
some good news for his party friends.
lie says that Iowa can confidently be
counted in the democratic column
for 1892. Of the third party, ho said :
"They could have done something if
they had shown more judgement, but
they met there in Cincinnati and
tried to make a party that could stand
on every sort of crank theory that
was proposed. They merely got on
the platform and kissed each other
and let the cranks ruu the conven
tion. I do not believe they can or
ganize now so as to have any in
fluence on the elections in Iowa,
either this fall or in '92." Being
asked who the republicans would
nominate for President, . Mr. Hayes
replied: "Harrison. I think he is
the only man mentioned who thinks
there is enough in the nomination to
make it worth fighting for, and the
party has got to take him. If Blaiae
wanted the nomination all that liar-
rison or anybody else could do would
not prevent his getting it, but Blaine
understands the present condition of
the republican party so well that he
doesn't want the nomination."
"There's going to be some mighty
lively democratic music before long,"
said a close friend of Senator Gor
man today, if a certain class of men

Tim Throat's Independent Brain.
"Did you ever know," said a well
l;novn specialist, as he deftly inserted a
1 iking glass into the roof of the suf
ferer's mouth, "that the throat has a
brain of its own ? No ? I suppose few of
tho laity do know it, but it's a fact.
There is a small ganglia which exercises
irect control over the muscles of the
throat and acts as its brain. Of course,
it is subservient to the genuine brain, but
t tho same tune does a good deal of m-
pendent thinking for itself. It is very
timid and suspicious at any strange ob
jects that come near the throat. For
this reason it is very difficult for a phy
sician to operate on the throat. Before
anything can be done in this direction it
is necessary for the operator to gain the
confidence of the little brain that dom
inates it. It frequently takes weeks be
fore this confidence can be secured, and
until it is secured it is impossible to oper
ate. When the little brain is finally
made to understand that no harm is in
tended it, but that the physician is actu
ated by friendly motives, it will submit
to almost any treatment, however painful.
"But woe be to the man who attempts
rough treatment to the throat before
gaining the little brain's confidence, and
in spite of its protests. His operations
will be resented with violent paroxysms,
first of the throat, then of the diaphragm,
and, if the operator still persists, tlH pa
tient will be thrown into convulsions.
Still more curious is the fact that this
little brain has a memory, and if once
frightened in this way it is almost im
possible to ever gain its confidence, no
matter how gentle the operator may be.
"I don t know whether its distrust
would extend to other operators than the
one who frightened it or not I think I
will try the experiment some time of
seeing whether it can remember faces."
An Electrical Saw.
It feas been noticed that platinum,
when placed in an electrical current, is
heated to a dull redness. This fact is
the basis of the invention of an electrical
Raw which will cut quickly and neatly
the hardest wood.
The device is made of steel wire, upon
which is deposited metallic platinum.
By connecting this modified wire with
the terminals of four Bunsen batteries
the platinum is heated to a bright red
ness, and the Baw is ready for business.
A New Meaiartr.
An ingenious device for measuring dis
tances, and which will be likely to in
terest architects and builders, is an in
vention of an English firm. It consists
of a small revolving wheel which operates
a spindle, the revolutions being accurately
registered by a dial counter. By running
the distance wheel along a wall or other
6urf ace the recorder will show how many
feet have been measured. There is prac
tically no limit to the distance that may
te determined by this little device.

F, Mitchell, Commissioner of Pat
ents, which prohibits the appearance
before that office of an ex-employe
as attorney or agent in any case
upon which he had passed while
an employe. Their little game
which had grown into a mammot
abuse, is ended, and the inven

to hope that their applications will i
the first place be honestly dealt with

and excellent rule shall be as strictly

Representative Mills will remain
in Washington the greater part of the
summer, engaged in literary work.
He is not doing any talking for p:il
lication on political subjects, und
thinks that the numerous fake inter
views with him that have recently
appeared in prominent newspapers,
are a part of a plan to injure his pros
pects of being elected Speaker of the
House by making him appear ridicu
lous. Hejwishes his friends to know
that any interview purporting to
give his opinions on the fitness of
any candidate, either for the Speak
ership or for the Presidency is entire
ly spurious, as he has expressed no
Col. W. W. Dudley says the anti-
Harrison republicans made fools of
themselves by holding their recent
conference at Indianapolis, and that
the conference amounted to nothing
except an attempt of Gresham's
friends to bring him out as a candi
date. This is taken here to mean
that Col. Dudley will support Harri
son, as liau been rumored a short
Senator Quay, who was here a few
days ago, told his friends that he
would not remain at the head of the
republican committee during the
coining campaign, but whether he
really intends to retire, or is bluffing,
is a matter of doubt.
Much ugly talk connecting various
members of the administration with
complicity in the crooked Philadel
phia bank failures, has been in
dulged in here during the last few
days, but the only thing definite is
that Assistant Secretary of the Treas
ury Nettleton acknowledges that he
is endorser upon some notes, amount
not stated, held by one of these
banks. It looks ns though Kxumi
ner Drew was to bo made a scapt-goat.

Two Subjects That Always Present In
"What do giuls talk about," I asked
one of them, "at their luncheons and
during calls upon each other??
"Well," 6he replied, "there are usually
two subjects of conversation at gather
ings of girls, and they are about equally
prolific. One of them is the men and
the other is girls who don't happen to be
present. We discuss the men of our ac
quaintance from every possible point ot
of view, exchange confidences that have
been made to us, criticise them with un
restricted freedom, and wonder which of
them want to marry and what styles of
girls they prefer.. Sometimes we are
rather sharp in our criticisms, but on the
whole the men get out rather easily,
Hut when it comes to other girls my!
"What do you mean by that?"
I mean that no mercv is sho'.rn. For
example, we take up some poor unfor
tunate who isn't with us and go through
the pleasant operation known as picking
her to pieces. We discuss her costumes,
her complexion, her manners, her say
ings, her tastes, and by the time we have
got through with her the Creator
wouldn't recognize His work. Then we
start in on some other girl. "
"But have you many enemies of this
"Enemies? Bless your innocent soul,
I haven't an enemy in the world. I lovn
my neighbor as myself. "
"You surely don't intend to convey tho
impression to my mind that these girls
whose characters you discuss in this can
nibalistic way are friends of yours?"
"Why, certainly. For instance, ou
the South Side the other day we were all
taking 5 o'clock tea and having a simply
beautiful time picking Maria Jones to
pieces. Just in the middle of it all Ma
ria came in. Was 6he greeted coldly?
Well, hardly. We all embraced her,
gave her a seat near the fire, and changed
the subject of conversation to Annie
Smith. And how Maria did go for her,
to be sure!" Chicago Post
There are honest cigar dealers who ad
mit that it is now impossible for them to
certify to the genuineness of all their
stuck. "It has lately been found out,"'
said one of them, "that Chinese tobacco
raised iu China is shipped to Cuba, where
it is made into cigars that are exported
and sold as genuine Havanas, made from
the Cuban leaf. Iu Cuba there are 50,000
Chinamen, and mauy of them are in the
ci'ar business, getting invoices of Chinese
tobacco from Hong Kong, which is mar
keted us the product of Cuba. The
Chinese stulf is cheap, but it sells high
