Repuulicans who now oppose the civil service so bitterly would bo just na et'ongly in favor of tho law were the offices in their possession. Why dn tho heathen raep? During tho first four months of tho Wilson law the custom receipts amounted to nearly 50,000,000. During tho first four months of tho Dingley law the re ceipts were not quite $35,000,000. The Wilson bill was all right. Wherever plenty of 'water is there electric light, heat and power can bo generated, whether there bo any great quantity of coal or other fuel or not. A waterfall will turn machinery any whero, and tho ma'chinory will run a dy namo. This uso of water power is now extensively mado in Central and South America and Moxico, likowiso in somo of our southern states. In Alaska and on the land routo to tho goldflolds tho rapids of tho great Yukon and its trib utaries might spoedily bo utilized to run electric cars and supply power and light ns well as boat It is much to know that wherover water flow is there man has tho means of lighting and warming himsolf and running cars, mills and factories. Organization is tho order of tho day. It is tho sign of tho times. Those whoso interests lio along tho samo path are uniting everywhere. Thoy consult' to gether; thoy form clubs; they hold con ventions, at which measures aro taken to strengthen tho bond of union and to forward tho iutcrosts of all tho members as of ono man. Tho solidarity of tho raco is showing itself. Tho original truth that all mankind aro brethren and that tho good of ono and tho good of all is identical shines sun clear as tho nine teenth century vanishes aiuj the twenti eth stops upon tho sceno with its glad young face and elastic step. Surely this universal tendency to organization among men and women is tho foreshad owing of better things to corao, tho portent of that timo when all mankind, rich nnd poor, will bo organized into one great union, tho interests of whoso members will bo tho samo.

A now uso for peanuts is developing as the peanut butter indu&try becomes Oet-tt-r understood. The product of the pea nut answers in tho place of ordinary but ter for tho table use, and is said to bo ex- cdllent lor shortening purposes, and for rravies, sauces, &c. In point of purity it it well designed for tho uso of vegota rlans who strenuously object to anything animal. There is already a considerable demand for this butter substitute, and it is very probable there will bo an enlarged market for the nuts. At present tho Sioduc of the United States is about 500, 30 bags annually, and that of tho world is 000,000,000 pounds. A rat trap operated by olectrioity is ono of tho lata inventions. It entices tho rodonts into its Httlo parlor by the eight of tompting bait. As thoy enter tho parlor thoy aro trapped completely.

Western Tobacco Journal. The following is a comparison sale of new tobacco, grown for John II. Carson, by II. Holbrook, of Georgetown, Scott County, Ky. This crop, consisting of 17 hhds., was divided between tho Bodtnann House, of Cincinnati, and Rice & Turner, of Louisville. Eight hhds., consisting of two hhds. bright leaf, one hhd. long red, ono hhd. short red, one hhd. lugs, two hhds. trash and ono hhd. spodge, were shipped to Louisville and sold December 8. Nine hhds., consisting of two hhds. bright leaf, one hhd. long red, one hhd. tips, two hhds. lugs, one hhd. trash and two hhds. spodge, were shipped to Cincinnati and sold December 0th. Tho average price realized in Louisville was $10.70, while that in Cincinnati, with ono hbd. raoro of spodge than was shipped to Louisville and one tip hhd. instead of short red, was $12.01. The following is a comparison of the prices on tho individual hogsheads : Cincinnati. Prlca. Bright leaf $16 73 and 10 75 ColoryliiRS 11 75 and 13 75 Long red leaf 13 7o Colory trash 0 35 Spodge 7 70 and 7 00 Short tips 8 00 Short red JjouUvllk. Prka. Bright leaf 811 60 and 11 00 Colory lugs 10 75 Long red leaf 12 75 Cjlory trash 9 90 and 8 70 Spodgo 5 CO Short lips Short red 9 50 The comparison should satisfy the shippers of tobacco that Cincinnati is very much "in it," and that Cincinnati is tho market for new tobacco, with fa cilities superior to any other market. Farmers contemplating the early mar keting of their tobacco should be con vinced by the above true comparison and not be missed by shipping to any other market. The Bodmann, established in 1852, has bo3n time-tried and fire-tested, and no where can a farmer obtain better security than at this houso. L. T. Anderson, Jr., solicitor of this house, can be seen weekly at Central Hotel, Maysville, Ky. He has represented tho "old reliable" for tho past fifteen years in the Mason County district and refers to any reputable farmer of the county as to his competency in representing tobacco entrusted to his care. All pooplo enjoy being humbugged, npparcutly tho hard headed, practical farmer hotter than anybody else. Ho likes to hear of extraordinary now vego tablo growths that will make him a for tuno in a year or two without any moro culturo than planting tho seed. Ho might know from his common sense, howover, that when tho story of somo now plant or grain reads like a fairy talo it is a humbug. Such stories orig inate in two ways. la tho ono caso they omanato from tho brain of tho space writer for tho newspaper, a person who will concoct any lio, howover impossi ble, for tho sako of getting his $3 or 5 a column. In tho other caso tho fako story comes from unscrupulous seedsmen and seed ngenta who want to trap tho agriculturist into buying their stuff. Littlo thoy caro whother tho thing grows at all or if it does grow whether it may not be a noxious weed that will bo a pest to tho universe. It is a pity that among so many honest and worthy seedsmen thcro aro somo of that kind. Ono of tho fako stories that went tho rounds was about tho fortunes to bo mado in chill poppers. Another told of the extraordinary virtues of a Russian weed called by somo saghalieu. Thou thoro is tho Idaho pea, no doubt ox- tremoly useful in its way, but it will not grow everywhere, and it will not do all that is claimed for it. Timo after timo the farmer has been trapped with machines, with chemical preparations ond with plants only to find when his money has been spent that if ono wishes to bo successful thoro is nothing like pegging away at tho work immediately uudor your nose, at tho samo timo watching every oppor tunity of bettoring yourself that comos your way. . now to Make Camphor Ice.

HANDKERCHIEFS are such a popular Christ7 mas Gift, we know a tempting offering of them now will be most welcome, we have secured a sample line of one hundred dozen, entirely up to our standard, but no maker sets much value on samples after they have served their purpose.
