As an illustration of how little items travel the country, the dclinition c f ••mugwump," as given by Alderman Donohue, of Wilkesbarre, may be cited. The editor of the Wilkesbarre Tim > three weeks ago called a silver Republi can named Jones a "mugwump." Jones took offense and bad the editor arrested for slander. The case wa heard before Alderman Donohue. 11 • - failed to fiml any slander in the remark made by the newspaper man and dis charged him. at the same time defining "mugwump" as "a respectable Repub lican inclined to kick over the traces." The definition, with a brief account of the case, then began the rounds of the press. It traveled Pennsylvania over and over, went into the neighboring states, and on Sunday appeared in tin* Nem, Savannah, Georgia, and the Times , Kansas City, and is still going. With the aid of the newspapers Alder- j man Donohue has won a national repu tation—and still some people have n< faith in the public press as an advertiser. Pupils Must Bo VnvviHtued. In an opinion handed down by Judg - McPhcrson, of the supreme court, li sustains the Ilummelstown school board, j which excluded from the public school> : of that town 155 pupils tfliose parents j refused to comply with the order of the j board as to vaccination. The couri j 1 holds that while the vaccination law i- i : in conflict with the compulsory attend ! i ance act, the vaccination law was pass j < ed last and takes precedence of tin other. The decision is an important one to school boards, as it makes their duty very clear whenever opposition rises to their orders on the vaccination question. The parents of Kreeland pupils will In called upon between now and the first of [ the year to procure statements for all , who attend the borough schools, certify ing that the pupils have been vaccinat ed. or lias previously had the small pox I Blank forms will be furnished the pupil.- by the teachers of the various schools. , Best Method of Winning u Fortune. ' This is a good time to advertise. Now that the holidays are coming more atten tion should he directed to business. Tin ' best way to secure this attention is by ; newspaper advertising. There are other 1 mediums that are valuable, but the ex perience of the most successful business people who have tried about every method is largely in favor of legitimate newspaper advertising. Like every un dertaking, tin; more care that is ex ercised in selecting means to secure desired results the more success will fol low. Localities and mediums, circula tion and standing are important factor in newspapers. The Titinr.M claim- ! the careful attention of local dealers and offers its columns to make their announcements. If you have something to sell that people need and will inform them in a convincing way of the fact we are sure you will reap substantial bene fit. Iry it if you have not done so.

THie most disheartening disclosure of recent immigration statistics is the i fact that, in periods when, because of l business (Repression or other depres ; -ion or other reasons, the total immi gration has fallen off, that from coun tries which give us t-lie largest per centages of illiteracy has more than held its own relatively. This is llie same as to say that at times when there is least room for immigrants, it is the least competent who conic in largest numbers. Averaging the leading na tionalities by groups, there were four persons who could not read and write among each 100 immigrants who came to us last year from Sweden and N'ci way, Germany, France niul Great Brit ain; but among the immigrants who came to us from Russia, Poland, Aus tria-Hungary and Italy, there were 32 persons in each 100 who could not read and write. During the first six moiP'i.s of the present calendar year, the four nationalities in this second group sup plied almost two-thirds of the total number of immigrants landed at New York; and the Italians, among whom the rate of illiteracy is highest, were the most numerous among llie new comers. The last national census showed that, while the foreign popula tion of the country constituted only about two-thirds of the whole, it fur nishes considerably more than one-half of the inmates of prisons and nearly three-fifths of the paupers. These facts show tlie urgency of the question of the restriction of immigration. It will be remembered, says the Youth's Compan ion, that congress, at the last session, took up this question, and the house passed a bill which aimed to restrict immigration by imposing an educa tional test. The senate committee on immigration sustained a somewhat stronger bill, but the measure did not reach a vote. The matter was left on the senate calendar, from which it it hoped it may be taken at the next ses sion, after the excitements of the eh c 'ion are over, and passed. When our recent eminent Chinese visitor —Li Hung Chang—criticised the attitude of this republic toward Chinese immigrants, lie did not take into con sideration the fact that while his coun try men are in this country they arc not of this country. They have their own semi-secret tribunals; tliey bold '.hem selves amenable to their own law s, and not to our laws; their purpose is to ac quire a certain amount of money, and then depart with it. The greatest ob jection to Chinese immigration ib not the cheapness of Chinese labor; ii is rather the d earn ess of it, for the Chinese contribute only indirectly to the pro peri ty of the country. They come here not to stay and help build up, b. t to exist while they get possession of some thing to takeaway. Queen Wilhelmina, of Holland, is r.ot likely to become engaged very soon ii ii little speech she is said to have made recently is authentic: "lam very fond of my subjects, and 1 hope to pi esse them in every way, but if they think they are to have a voice in the select ion of my future husband they never made a greater mistake. If they take any ex treme measures I shall be more de termined than ever, for I am resolved they must not coerce me into a marriage which is distasteful. 1 shall not man\ unless I am allowed some voice in 1 lie matter." Wilhelmina is very apt to eon tin ue monarch of lier country married or single. Mrs. Jefferson Davis writes to the Baltimore Sun an appreciative letter about the late Frederick McGinnis (colored), who was tlie personal servant of her husband. "He was an honor to bis race," she says. "A man of sterling integrity, high intelligence, keen sense of justice, a warm and grateful heart, he had the fine instincts of a gentle man. Whatever be undertook he per formed faithfully and well, for his mental faculties were not inferior to bis moral qualities." Hereafter the Sohroedcrs and the Se 111 utters and other alleged "divine" healers will pay the city SIOO a year for the privilege of operating in Knn | ias City. The upper house of the city i I'otjncil has decided upon this, and con ' i'luded further to include the class of "doctors" which heals by the laying on i d hands, with the fortune tellers, tlie | clairvoyants, the trance mediums, tlie i mind readers, astrologists and palmists. Thirteen postal cards delivered at one time to the chief of police of Kansas ."it}', Kan., were found to be the first part of u letter, the balance of which an 12 more cards came to him in the next mail, written by some woman who thought she was hoodooed. Abraham Lincoln's famous black leaver hat is in Washington, with a iuit for its possession pending in court. Ii is hoped, remarks a facetious con temporary, that the attorneys will not be allowed ty talk through it. WORK OF THE COUNCIL. BUSINESS TRANSACTED AT MONDAY EVENING'S SESSION.

They were ordered to notify Mr. Danakor. Simon I* llok. August Kellert, John Zeistloll'. 1 ionry Stunt/.. Joseph Backus and John Gregor were exonerated from dog tax.

Powell, on behalf of the Citi zens' Hose Company, asked whose duty it was to dry and clean the hose after each lire. After discussing the matter for some time it was agreed that it was the duty of the borough janitor and he was instructed to attend to such mat ters hereafter, and when he requires as sistance the bill will be paid by the council.

Ladies' Home Journal for 1807. An even excellence makes the good tilings which the Ladies' Home Joum promises unusually interesting anu strong. The list is long and sturdy. One series of papers alone would sell the magazine: that is, the three White House articles which ex-President Har rison is to write. No man lias ever done what General Harrison will do in these articles:- show us what "A Day With tin- President at His Desk" means in one article: in another tells of ••The Social Life of the President." and in a third article describes "Kpstairs Life in the White House." Each of the articles will be profusely illustrated. Another series equally fascinating is the one called ••Great Personal Events," in which some of the greatest enthusiasms which have occurred in America will be revived:— those wonderful times when Louis Kossuth road up Broadway; when the young Prince of Wales was here: when Jenny Lincl sang in Castle Garden: when Henry Ward Beecher electrilied his congregation by selling slaves in his pulpit: when Henry Clay bade farewell to t lie senate; when John We ;|ey preach ed in Georgia, of which so few know. All these memorable events and others will bo vividly recalled, told more graph ically than ever before and illustrated with pictures which .have occupied twelve artists for over a year. A third series is unique and valuable from the fact that it will give women scores of ideas for their homes. It will reveal what there is "Inside f a Hun dred American Homes." and carefully reproduce pictures of one hundred com pletely-furnished rooms in homes in this country- from Maine to California— where taste has gone farther than money. New department writers have also been exclusively engaged—Mrs. s. T. Borer, who will hereafter have en tire charge of the domestic department, and Dwight L. Moody, the famous evan gelist. who is to put the result of his life study of the bible in "Mr. Moody's Bible Class." Altogether, no magazine gives a list of attractions so interesting and promising as does the l.adict? Home Journal, and certainly no perio ileal dues it. If it has become a fad, as it seems, for every girl and woman to take this magazine.* it is an excellent one. and. unlike many j other fads, a sensible one. The Journal! is published by the Curtis Publishing j Company. Philadelphia, for $1 per year. 1 I NEWS OF THE WEEK. Thuntduy, l>ec. 3. Mgr.
