The newspaper Cablnot makers are

Mr. Brtan's campaign of .education
since tho election omits tho lesson ho
sought to teach the voters of uttering
one sentiment and voting another. It
was found to bo conducive to neither
good morals nor electoral votes.
This thing of asking a free-silver
Democrat to "forego his occupation"
and be thankful on Thansgiving Day
is the rankest kind of coercion.
Whilo tho day is not exactly a Repub
lican monopoly, it would seem to have
been proclaimed by tho President this
yeai for tho especial benefit of tho fol
lowers of McKinley.
WHERE NOAH GOT HIS PITCH.
Natural Spring Which Enabled Illm to
Make tlio Arlt Wntor Tight.
An Knglish explorer has recently
reached Hit, in Syrin, the locality in
which Noah dwelt. Here he found a
remarkable group of bitumen springs,
saya the Xcw York Journal.
1'roni these springs, ho says, it is
probable that Aoah obtained his supply
of material to "pitch it within and with
out." In a basin, undoubtedly of vol
canic origin, a spring of warm water
bubbles up, and with the water comes
iho bitumen or pitch, in a iilastie form,
of the consistency of rather moist put
ty; and the Arabs gather it by simply
scraping it off the surface of the water
with their bare hands and pressing it
snto panniers carried by patient little
donkeys, who then struggle up the
rocky sides of the basin and take the
material off to the boat-building yards,
where it is used for covering tho boats
and gouphas, after undergoing a cer
tain refining process.
The bitumen is continually rising,
'but owing to the formation of the basin
into which it rises with the stream
-very little of it can escape, and it re
mains floating on the surface of the wa
ter till taken off by the Arabs. Tho wa
ter itself tastes slightly of sulphur, is
quite warm and apparent!' charged
with some mineral which it deposits
in its rocky bed as it flows away
(through channels and crevices which
.the ibltumen cannot pass) from the
"basin, coating it with a lovely lilac
color, which further down the stream
becomes a "peacock" blue.
A POLITICIAN TESTED.
A Congressman Who Could Not Play
Checkers to Suit Constituents.
"One of tho ablest men in congress
will lose a number of votes in his dis
trict in Georgia," said a department
clerk to a Washington Star reporter.
A friend of mine wrote me somo time
ago that the judge was safe so far as
his reelection was concerned, but my
friend visited one of the back coun
ties a few days ago and found that a
decided change in sentiment had come
about. lie asked cne of the political
" 'What is the matter with the judge."
" 'He ain't no good."
" 'Why, what did he ever vote for
that you are not in favor of?'
" '1 dunno.'
" 'Did ho vote against cnything you

Mules for Hear Hunters.
The proper beast for a grizzly bear
hunter to rido is a good mule. Dr. W.
P. Edgar, United States army, tells in
liecreatlon why a mulo is best. The
doctor was wandering near a camp up
in Washington state on a mule. He
had his rifle with him, and, seeing a
big bear in the trail, fired. Tho bear
tumbled over and out of sight. It Jooked
like a clean kill, and the doctor start
ed toward the place, and was nearly
in sight of tho hollow where the bear
had disappeared, when the bear climbed
vp over the edge and went for him.
It was then that the mulo was of the
utmost service. The mule rose on its
Wnd feet, turned sharply around, and
Leaded for camp. A horse or a mustang
wouldn't have been quick enough, tho
bear was bo close, but all tho hunter
Lad to do was to hang on, Tho mule
Icnew what to do without being told.

The separate bodice continues In
vogue, ever charming us with tho
beauty of its outlines. Especially is this
true of tho evening bodice, which for

never equaled. Tho following are some

LIFE IN THE GREAT CITIES.
It Tendency III Not to Rnermto Na
tions. Anjl ni to the tfciitlrney of tho growth
of great cities to enervate nations there
is no proof of it nt nil unless we Identity
the life of pi eat cities with the passion
for Idleness and , pleasure and self-indulgence,
which sometimes, but by no
mean! unhei stilly, accompanies their
growth, says tho London Spectator.
When you get n largo proletariat liv
ing, ns that of nnuicnt Homo nnd pos
sibly of N'tncveh and Babylon did, ou
tho alms of the rich nnd powerful, then
no doubt you havo the conditions of
n thoroughly unnatural and unhealthy
life, and no ono can wonder at tho rapid
decay of Buch cttlcs and of tho nations
which gloried In them. But where tho
honest working class far outnumbers
the proletariat, where tho middle
classes of distributors and manufac
turers and professional men arc, labor
ious nnd energetic, nnd even the clasi
that lives on Its accumulated wealth
contains a considerable sprinkling of
serious and disinterested workers, wc
no not believe that there is the smallest
cvldenco of nny greater danger in tho
life of the city than in the life of tho
agricultural village of tho pastoral
tribe. Indeed, we should regard Olive
Schreincr's picture of the life of the
modern Boers ns Indicating a condi
tion of things more prolific of morbid
elements, with its almost completo ab
sence of nny stirring or nctlve intelli
gence, thnn nny kind of modern life
that is honestly laborious at nil. Tho
Boer life Is too sleepy, too destitute of
stirring thought or effort, to bo alto
gether natural. It needs at least tho
old element of danger and necessary
vicrilnnco to render it even brnclnxr.
Thanksgiving Cocklne Main.
There is a movemeut on foot among
local sports who aro fond of cock fight
ing to have a tournament of that kind
in the vicinity of this city on Thanks
giving day. Tho matter hasn't as
sumed any tangible shapo as yet and
is no wiso an assured go. But it is
hoped by tho lovers of tho sport that
the project will bo carried through to
completion. It has been tho custom to
havo a cocking main each Thanksgiv
ing and as the ono last year was such
a success from a cock-fighter's point of
view, admirers of tho sport hopo for n.
similar event on tho 20th inst. If it
does not como off, a number of Park
ersburgers will go to Circleyllle, where
