Tho chemistry of cleaning clothes is
set forth in a scientific magazino, and,
while women will care littlo for the
technical part of tho operation, tho
tory of tho actual process suggests a
useful modus operandi. Take, for in
stance, says tho American Analyst, a
shiny old coat, vest or pair of trousers
of black broadcloth, cassimcro or
diagonal. The scourer makes a strong,
warm soapsud3 nnd plunges tho gar
ment into it, souses it up and down,
rubs tho dirty places, and, if necessary,
puts it. through a second time, then
rinses It through several waters, nnd
hangs it up to dry on tho line. When
nearly dry he takes it in, rolls it np for
nn hour or two, and then presses it.
An old cotton cloth is laid on tho out
bide of tho coat, and tho iron is pressed
over that until the wrinkle's aro out,
but tho iron is removed beforo tho
Gtcam ceases to riso from tho goods,
clso they would bo shiny.
Wrinkles that aro obstinate aro re
moved by laying a wet cloth over them
nnd pressing tho iron over that. If
any shiny places nro seen, they are
treated as the wrinkles are tho iron is
lifted whilo the full cloud of steam
rises up, nnd brings tho nap with it.

The Gold Reserve Steadily Decreasing
Officials Reticent. .-a.
Washington, Aug. 0. The reticence
that prevails among treasury officials
when they aro approached on the sub
ject of the condition of the gold re
serve and their absolute refusal
to offer any opinion as to
what this outflow of gold of the
past two weeks signifies leads to the
conclusion in some quarters that. th
treasury is uneasy about the situation.
It is quite probable that by Saturday
tho syndicate will be compelled
to provo whether it considers
its contract fulfilled or whnthpr.
it feels constrained to assist tho gov
ernment in maintaining tho reserve.
The rapid diminution of tho reserve,
tho spcody descent from moro thau
8107,000,000 to a very little margin
over tho amount the re
servo is required to he has
shown how easy a raid, under tho ordi
nary course of business can be con
ducted. Treasury otlicials aro em
phatic in their statement that this loss
of gold is duo to legitimate business and
point to tho charactor of the houses
taking it out to show that it is not
the result of speculation. Whatever
may bo the causo tho loss is felt and
will bo felt to a still greater extent be
fore tho week is ended.

The Horr-IIarvoy Debate .Summed Dp by
Chicago, Aug. 7. When the Horr
Harvey silver debate was In progresa
It was arranged that each of the dis
putants should, within ten days after
the close, give to the public a summary
of his views in not toexceed 2,500 words.
Tills summary Is given to the press as
Mr. Horr said: Theobjectof this de
bate was to determine if it would be
wiso for our nation to throw open its
mints to tho freo coinage of silver at
tho ratio of 10 to 1, when the civilized
nations of the world refuse to join in
such action. My opponent proposed
to prove that such course is advisable,
and undertook to do it on the lines laid
down in "Coin's Financial School."
Ho based his whole argument on
the proposition that the silver
dollar was in 1702 made the on
ly unit or measure of value. 1
havo shown conclusively that our fore
fathers attempted to establish bimet
allism and provided for. two units of
value, ono of gold and one of silver, al
ways naming gold first, and that up to
1834 the silver standard alone was used.
That afterward, the gold standard
came into use, nnd since that tho sil
ver dollar has never for a day been
used as tho measure of values in the
Mr. Harvey next based his case upon
the assumption that the law of 1873 was
a crime, and stated that it had its ori
gin in fraud and its birth through
bribery, and corruption. He placed
himself upon four propositions to prove
First He claimed that the congress
of the United States was purchased;
that tho passage of the bill was pro
cured by the money of capitalists of
this and other nations.
Secondly He stated that tho bill
passed both houses all right, and was
changed by some clerk in its enroll
ment. Ho next claimed that It was
not changed by a clerk, but that tho
dirty work was done In conference
He then showed that none of his
other statements is true, but that the
work was done by passing a "substi
He introduced no evidence in sup
port of either proposition, and he
stands convicted of making every one
of these charges without any proof
that would be received in any ordinary
court of justice.
Mr. Harvey's statement that free
coinage creates "unlimited demand,"
is not true, because there can be an
unlimited demand for no human pro
ductions. The other doctrine of Mr. Harvey is
that the free coinage of silver in this
country upon the old ratio of IS to 1,
the old price of silver as compared with
gold, will be restored.
Mr. Harvey virtually admits that the
action which he proposes will put this
nation on a silver basis and drive gold
out of this country.
SIR IIAUVEV'S SUMMARY'.
Mr. Harvey said: Tho debate settles.
in my judgment, the following propo
sitions: First That gold and silver is the
money of the constitution.
Second That tho silver dollar was
the unit of valuo in our coinage sys
tem fixed by the act of 1792.
Third That silver and gold both
were the measures of value of all other
property till 1S73 and the debtor had a
right to pay in either metal.
Fourth That the act of 1873 was
Fifth That for all time of which we
have knowledge gold and silver were
treated equally as money; both had
a right to enter the mints in all the
countries of the world until 1810,
when England closed her mints to bil
ver, and 1873-4, when the United Slates,
Germany, Franco and the Latin union
followed, and until 1S73-4 the commer
cial value of the two metals were sub
stantially at a parity with the legal
Sixth That prices of all property
aro now measured in cold alone, and
aro substantially at the present time
one-half what they would be under the
bimetallic system. Mr. Horr frequent
ly In debato substantially makes this
Seventh That there were S143, 000,000
in silver coined at our mints prior to
1873, all of which coined prior to 1853
was primary money, nnd since 1853 the
silver dollars were primary money, and
by virtue of tho right of silver to be
coined into primary money through
the medium of silver dollars, the whole
volume of the silver supply was behind
ogr monetary system, was exerting its
influence as a measure of value, and
stood ready to be coined and to share
equally with gold tho demand for
