When the fact is boine in mind that our people are also the largest consumers of other grains, as well as of other native products, it is a safe con clusion that we are the host nurtured people on the fa"e of the earth, and. therefore, ought to be the most con tented and happy. A recent letter from the Prince of Wales’ man of business to an old-es tablished firm of wine merchants, to whom the Prince had owed $6,000 for live years, and who had asked very re spectfully for a settlement, reads as follows: His royal highne?* is ex;remety an noyed at your commoni-a.. ar. i in structs me 10 say that It he trets any moro such letters his patronage of your *s:ah ll«hment will h<* at once' and permanently withdrawn.

Prof. Ripley, in a magazine, express es his opinion that the Chinese will ul timately people the earth, since tiny among the races have the greatest pow er of acclimatization the power ef adaptation to new terrestrial condi tions. The Chinaman, says Prof. Rip ley. Is the healthiest animal that walks the earth. The Hebrew come- next for persistency. The Chinese is the only race that defies consumption. The Ar yan race Is susceptible to i‘. The Chi naman is even malaria ptoo*. an l thrives Just as well in New England as in Guiana. The Japanese do not ap pear to have the sanr> power of resist ance. and the negro is apt to be weak at the lungs. Hut the race most ten acious of life is not necessarily to be the governing race. Mind will continue to play the superior pa-: over matter to the end of time. —--o the NEXT sfn \tf. With thb expiration of the present Congress the terms of thirteen Repub lican and fourteen lVmocratie Senators* will end. In addition to these. Peffer, of Kansas, and Kyle, of South I'takota, both Populists, and Jones, of Nevada, a 'ree silver Republican, will also re tire. Republicans are certain to be chosen by all the States which have retiring Republican Senators with the possibla exception of North Carolina, where thu Populists and Republicans arc likely to control the Legislature, and either a Republican or Populist will succeed as Senator. The Democrats are certain :» A lose a Senator In Illinois, another in N'pw York, another in Ohio, another in. Wisconsin, and one in Maryland, with the possibility of losing one in Indiana, one in Kentucky, one in Delaware, and another in Missouri. In Ohio and Maryland Republican Senators have already been chosen to succeed Democrats. In addition to the.-e. the Republicans are certain to gain two Senators in r'ad® Ppfler and Kyle, the Populisms from Kansas and South Dakota. Jones, of Nevada, will probably succeed himself, but while a free silverite. he is a Republican on all other questions. In the event that the Republicans should elect the next President and Congress they will probably have a clear majority in the I’nited States Sen ate. This would give theni com; lete | control in every branch of the govern ment and leave the responsibility un divided. as it ou£ht .0 be. A divided government, where there is no absolute* party responsibility, usuallv results in the delay or Joiea: of inapt vrant legis lation, constant political bickering and general turmoil. It is a condition large ly peculiar to America. In most other countries a popular election means a change in the political complexion of the entire government, and thus when one party is voted out its successor has a clear field for the trial of its policy. Whichever party comes into power on March \ next it is to be hoped that its responsibility will be clear and dis tinct. -o 6000 C ROPS IN PROSPECT. The governmerit's report of crop con ditions for May has had a beneficial ef fect upon business generally. Winter wheat has improved 5.6 per cent, since the compilation of the April averages, and is still gaining in condition in nearly all sections of the country. This percentage of recovery between \pril and May is the greatest *hat can he found in a comparison of Federal crop statistics in any of the past fifteen years and it augurs favorably for still great er improvement during the period that will intervene before the crop shall be ready for harvesting. The proportion of spring plowing that has been done this season is 79.6 per cent, of the total, or 1.9 per cent, above that of the aver age year. Tb? United States are nor alone ir the hopeful prospect of their agricultural interests* The information so far re ceived by the Department of Agricul ture shows that crop conditions are ex cellent in Gr-at Britain and France, good in Russia and Austro-Hungary, fur in Germany, Italy and Roumama. and unfavorable only in Spain. Nature is evidently doing all that can he ex pired of her to pave the way for more prosperous trade conditions during the fall and winter months. -o FOREIGN 1*01*1 I, AT IONS, Europe, according to the latest pub lished figures, has gained 30,000,000 in population in the last ten years, and this in the face of an emigration esti mated at 5.000,000. The largest increase is set down for Russia. an:l It Is fixed at 12,510.800. The Austro-Hungarian empire increased 3,502.200. Great Brit ain 2.452.400, Germany 4.522,600. France is at the foot of tin list, with 67100; evrn Turkey exceeds her having grown to the extent of 1.100.000. Asia is grow ing faster than either Europe or Amer ica. though, of course, it starts from a bigger basis of population. The last ten years of India alone of which a cen sus was taken shows a growth of 33, 000,060. We obtain a vivid idea #of the vast ness of the Oriental populations from these figures. Our own country's in crease is less phenomenal when we take into account what is going on the world over.

Fremont, O.. May 16.—A terrible trag edy was enacted just one mile east of the village of Lindsay and about eight miles from this city, in which one man was killed outright and two sons are in such a condition that death may result at any moment. The deed was committed about midnight and evident ly was well planned. At this hour the family of Jacob Hess was aroused by an explosion which shattered their home, but nr#one was injured. Mr. Hess and his two sons immediately prepared to leave the house to ascertain thc cause, and they had hardly stepped out when a shot was heard and the old gentleman dropped dead. Another shot and one of the sons fell pierced in the breast with a quantity of buck shot; again a shot and the other re ceived a bullet. The fiend then escaped and thu3 far has not been captured. Suspicion points strongly to the deed having been committed by a young far mer named Louis Billau, who had fall en desperately in love with the daugh ter of Mr. Hess, but his suit has been strenuously opposed by the father and also the brothers. Lately he has been prohibited from making calls, and this soenraged him that he has been nearly wild. People who know the young man think he has brooded over the love affair so much that he has become in sane. The sheriff and a posse start ed at once to capture the man, but so far have not been able to locate him. MUSICAL CLUB. Splendid Recital Yesterday After noon. Which Closed the Season of '95 and '90. Until the 12th of June When the Second Public Concert Will Be Given. The programme arranged by the R o man's Musical Club was larger than usual, but each number was listened to with pleasure, and at the end, when it was realized that no more recitals, with the exception of the June concert, for which preparations are now going on. were to be given until next season, which will begin with the first Saturday in October. 1S%. and continue till June, 1897, much regret was expressed, for no more enjoyable afternoons have been spent in Wheeling for years than with the musical organization since its inaugural last November. The active list now comprises over 100 and the work done, as shown in each successive recital, proved that all were in earnest to uphold the object of the club—the developing of talent) and musical interest in Wheeling. This recital was opened with a beau tiful arrangement for two pianos and organs of the “Barbier de Seville.” splendidly rendered by Miss Flora Pol lack. Mrs. Charles O. Roemer. Mrs. J. W. Phoebus and Miss Wilde. Mrs. Her bert Riheldaffer’s excellent voice was heard to good advantage in "Ernani,” Hofmann’s “Reverie, opus 34. No. 3," and Chopin's Rerceuse, opus 57.” were interpreted with much taste, after which Mrs. George R. Caldwell and Mrs. Flora Williams sang the “Dictating of Letter” scene from "Marriage of Figaro” su perbly. This number was a surprise as well as a genuine treat to the audience, as the dramatic ability as well as the finished singing of both ladies was brought forward. .Miss Hulaa ueiapiaine ciisunguisnea herself in her rendering of Mozart’s “Fantasia.” She was beautifully ac companied on second piano by Mrs. Frank LcMoyne Hupp. “Gaily Bing the Summer Birds" was exquisitely sung by Miss Loretta McGranahan, her sweet, pure voice bringing forcibly to all thoughts of birds and summer. Miss Flora Pollack’s violin solo, a gem of Fit. de Beriot, was charmingly present ed. The shading was artistic. In the next number on the program Miss Zou Hastings’ beautiful, sympa thetic voice was used and compliment ed to bring before the public for the first time a song by Mrs. Lewis Steen rod, of this city, a member of the club. “Branches of Brightest Holly” is a vory pretty waltz song and is the sec ond composition by club members, the other being “Florence." the joint work of Mrs. Seymour Dunlfvy and Mrs. Blanche Dunlevv Steenrod. “My Littlo Love" was sung as a second number with much feeling. Mrs. Albert C. Whitaker and Miss Frances L. Bell rendered faultlessly the "Gebnetstags Musik" of Bohm. This number can be classed as one of the instrumental gems of the season. Mrs. Flora Williams can well be proud of her work in the club, as the singing of the "Water Lily" yes terday afternoon by the Choral Club was beyond criticism, and a fine ending to a series of good works done. -o summer Corsets, extra long waists, ."iOc north 81.00. 1 Inen Collar* and Cuff*, newest, shape* all sizes. *»atln 'stork Bow*, thr only correct style.

The game was hotly contested all through. Messrs. “Walla” Campbell, C. W. Rodwig, Frank Day and John S. Ellis, who attended the Northwestern Fire Association meeting at Letonia. are at home and brought celluloid bells home as souvenirs. A fine parade was given and a pleasant entertainment to all. A. J.

She had nursed a great many patients in this city and all through the State. Among her most difficult cases was one of small-pox. She died at the home of her sister, Mrs. H. C. Tuttle, at Emsworth, Pa., and was brought to her home. No. 2320 Chapline street, from which place she was buried last Tuesday afternoon at four o'clock. Drs.
