Restricting Power to Create Debt.
A bill passed the senate a few days
before adjournment providing that
hereafter no government bonds
should he issued without the author
ity of Congress. The seoretary of the
treasury can now bond the country
even when congress is in session, and
haa done so wiihiu less than three
years to the tuno of$202,000,000 and all
the time liu has insisted that the
revenues were ample to meet the
wants of the government. Uud. t'
circumstances it, seems perfectly
proper that so important a matter as
contract ingsuch a debt,or adebtofnny
size should lie authorized only by the
rt presentatives of the people in con
gress asen:h!ed but the bill failed to
become a law, the House refusing to
act upon it. The reason assigned for
this, uud it, is a reasonable one, is
that the members of the House could
not vote for it, without displeasing
their plutocratic mutters, and tliev
did not want to go on record as vot
ing ag.iiutt ir. Both of Minnesota's
senators, by the wuy, voted against
the bill, preferring to leave that great,
power in the hands of one m»n than
putting it iu the hands of the people
O
Silver Exports and their Effect
Eur the ten mouths of the presem
fiscal year, or from July 1, '90, to
April 30.'00, the United" State*' net
exports of silver amounted to $38,980,
720. This country being the largest
producer, is, of course the largest ex
porter of silver, and reason ought
to be most concerned in keeping up
its price, but as a matter of fact no
nation has worked so deligently and
effectually to reduce its price. The
world must have all the silver pro
duced, the greatest part of it is, in
fact, hungry fjr silvir, uses iu the
arts or coins at once all it can get
hold of, and if its price hud not been
reduced by legislation the foregoing
exports would have been nearly
double their present value, which
would have been a great relief to the
country in its present, sore need. Hui
this is not, the worst feature of our
silver exports, they become a mighty
weapon of our own supplying for our
own destruction. That silver, made
so cheap when valued in gold, i.»
bought by Euglish importers of agri
cultural products at its gold price,
sent to the silver using competitors nf
our farmers, where it is coined into
nearly double its gold value and used
at its new value to buy those pro
duets, which may he 50 per cent
igher than our prices and yet leave
the English speculators a magnificent
profit. Compared with all other
ulues silver coin in silver countries
is as valuable as it ever was, its pur
chasing power is unchanged, but the
United States is furnishiug the silver
to make the coin at about half its
former price, and all the proiit that
accrues to the British importer of
faaui products by reason of our action
comes out of our farmers in their
competition with the world, which
reacts upon every other class in the
country except the American part
ners of the British speculators, in
whose behalf the gold standard cru
sade is being fought. History fails to
parallel such a colossal example of
national self abuse as this country
has been and still is guilty of.
a
Foreign Trade and Debt
For ten months of the fiscal year
ending April 30, '9G, this country ex
ported $102,000,000 more of merchan
dise gold and silver than it received.
At this ratio the balance for the year
will be about $200,000,000. It we were
selling more than we were buying
abroad, and getting cash for the dif
ference, it would be an excellent
thing, but as a matter of fact we are
not only not getting anything in re
turn save credit on our interest ac
count abroad, but our foreign credit
ors are clamorous for more,«iud since
the foregoing date have been taking
our precious metals more greedily
than before. The worst of the situ
ation is that we are thus pressed and
embarrassed to pay interest on loai.s
llftit have not for more than a quarter
of a century added a dollar to our
stock of money the debt we are now
paying interest on to such a frighttul
amount simply represents the growth
of a comparatively small foreign debt
about 25 years ago, that by reason
of our failure to pay, and reborrow
ing the interest paid, has now reach
ed the enormous total of $0,000,000,000
or four times as great as at the former
period. The situation is still farther
aggravated by a change in our mone
tary system that compels the sur
render of nearly double the amount of
silver and other products to pay a
dollar of that debt or interest. And
yet some people wonder why times
are hard, why business is depressed!

is difficult, to give a conception of this
great book to one who has never
seen it. in it is concentrated the
thoughts of highest biblical scholars
of the. two worlds—the old and the

noble con r'butiou to literature, is
sustained by the writings of a most
imposing array of men whose names

which will speedily find a way into
every household. The exceedingly
low prices of the popular edition,
grjded according to the bindings,
place it within the reach of all, and
no family c.m be long without it.
Agents are advertised for. An edi

out, which is said to be the most
magnificent specimen of bookmaking
eVir issued. The work iu both forms
is sold only by subscription.

LOCKJAW IN SOIL.
Tetanus IJacllll Tlirivo in Lons Island—
Kino Futilities a Year.
The de nth of a child in Brooklyn from
lockjaw, fcaid to have been caused by
bacilli of the disease which existed in
tho soil of that region, calls attention
again to a peculiar iiung'or of some por
tions of Long Island, which has been
mentioned at intervals of several years.
In this instance the child, says the Hart
ford Times, a girl two years old, had
been vaccinated. There was no reason
to suspect the purity of the vaccine
ixiatler. It was used three weeks ago,
und the child wan getting1 011 well until
in playing- in the dirt she scratched the
vaccinated arm while her fingers were
emeared with clay.
As to the existence of tetanus bacilli
In the soil, the evidence seems to be am
pl«. Health Commissioner Kmery says
tlia soil is full of these bacilli and that
they causcd several deaths which fol
lowed vaccination a year ago. T)r.
&nyne,whoattended the little girl,says:
"The germs of tetanus ore in the air as
well us in the Koil,but to breathe them is
not necessarily fatal. In the vicinity
of the south shore of Long Island
horses, as well as human beings, have
fallen victims to the bacilli. In Iho
case of the little girl her finger nails
contained the germ, which when
brought into contact with the superfi
cial abrasion at once inoculated her sys
tem with the poison." Dr. West, of the
Brooklyn department of health, says the
existence of the gt-rm of tetanus has
been noted for several years, more par
ticularly in the east and southern tiers
of Long Island. He adds: "Suffolk
county, I belitve, has the reputation of
being the most alTectcd spot. In the
past three years, in Brooklyn, there has
been nn average of nine fatalities from
the work of tetanus bacillus annually.
The germ, when exposed to the air, soon
succumbs. When it attacks a wound it
burrows down deep, for the purpose of
keeping away from the air."

OHINESE EAT NOTHING COLD.
Their Greatest Delicacy Ii Said to Be
Live Shrimps.
The Chinese esteem shrimps above all
other tilings, says Pearson's Weekly.
At a well-served table they are brought
on swimming about in a glass bowl of
water flavored with oil und vinegar,
which renders the creatures hysteri
cally alive. With an unerring thumb
and forefinger the Chinese diner-out
plucks forth the struggling fish, nips
off the tail at one bite, and casts the
useless head behind him.
Shoclting as it may seem to an Eng
lish housekeeper, the older the egg in
China, the more perfect from an epi
curean standpoint does it become, for
no Chinaman who lias aright regard for
his palate eats a fresh boiled egg.
Taken fresh, eggs are sent to soak, after
having been washed in a tub of aromat
ic water. After a time they are re
moved, and the water used in mixing a
paste of lime and salt, in which the
egg3 are packed in jars. These are
hermetically sealed and set aside to
stand for a month, when they are sup
posed to be fit for eating. Those left
packed in salt and lime for 12 months
or more, when opened, are found to
have changed color, solidified partly
and are odorless.
The chief care of the Chinese is to
eat nothing cold. Warm or hot food
they absorb in abundance, but rightly
they maintain that cold food lowers the
temperature of the stomach beyond the
point where digestion can continue, and
so the whole health of the body is en
dangered.

A Family of Eight Whose United Ages
Foot TJp to 060 Years*
The most remarkable instance of
longevity in the history Of the Nut
meg state, perhaps, is noted in the
Kimball family of the town of Preston,
one member of it, Mrs. Abby S.
Cook, who is passing the closing years
of her life in the home of her daugh
ter, Mrs. William H. Cook, of Franklin
street, this city, having celebrated the
other day the 90th anniversary of her
birthday. Mrs. Cook is the widow of
tho late Isaac H. Cook of Preston. A
large number of her relatives, friends
and neighbors called at her home on her
anniversary day and congratulated her,
and the venerable lady, who is still
hole and active and of a cheerful spirit,
entertained them.
Mrs. Cook is a member of a family
of eight children, sons and daughters
of Elisha and Lucy Latlirop Kimball,
all of whom are alive and in vigorous
health, with the exception, of Mrs. Sybil
A. Branch, the eldest, who died two
years ago at Koxbury, Mass., aged 90
years 4 4 months.
Here are tho names and ages of the
surviving members of the band: Abby

Nelson L. Kimball, Iowa, 82 Trances
De Wolf, Chiaago, 80 Lucius T. Kim

brothers and sisters are C69 years, in
cluding that of Mrs. Branch.
Tho Deacon Undone.
There was once a deacon on Cape Cod
who heard early one morning that
there had been a wreck on the beach
near his house. He hurried down with
a couple of pillow-cases filled one with
sugar, hid it under the bank and went
on to look for more groceries. While
he was gone a neighbor came along on
the same errand, caught sight of the
pillow case, emptied it into his own bag
and refilled it with sand. By and by the
deacon returned empty-handed, and
carried off his pillow-case without no
ticing the change. In fact, he filled his
sugar bowl and tried to sweeten his cof
fee before he found out how badly he
had been treated. Then he was so in
dignant that he confessed afterward:
"I was almost wicked enough to wish
there might never be another wreck on
this here coast again."
To Tell a Blan's Profession.
Curious as it seems there is a dis
tinct relation between man's pursuits
and the color of man's hair. An unus
ual proportion of men with dark,
straight hair enter the ministry red
whiskered men are apt to be given to
sporting and horse flesh, while the tall,
vigorous, blonde man, lineal descend
ant of the Vikings, still contributes a
large contingent to travelers and emi

A Good Standing Army.
The army of Japan, in the opinion of
men versed in military affairs, is one of
the best organized armies in the world.
The rank and file are the descendants of
tho famous old Samurai—the sturdy
men at arms who followed the fortunes
of the early "daimins"—hereditary sol
diers, imbued with all their warlike
traditions.

standpoint of amusement as would a
residence in a graveyard. There
is
ab­
solutely nothing to do except work,
sleep and eat. The only place
a
man
has to go when he has finished work
is
to a saloon, and there he has nothing to
do for recreation but drink. The door
to the best society is shut in the face of
Americans—'gringor?s,' as they are
called by the haughty dons—no matter
what their stauding. Of course, when
oue has oflncial dignity he is invited to

but there is no such thing as social in

less it is in the presence of her entire
family under the watchful eye of her
duenna, and there isn't much pleasure
in this kind of a visit to most young
men of America. Guatemala City has
a population of 80,000, but has no
theaters. There was an opera company
of fair character there two years ago,
but there havo been no attractions at
all of this kind during the past season.
Living is very high in Guatemala City,
and salaries are by no means cor
respondingly high. I would not advise
any young man to go there with the
idea of making his fortune. There has
been too much immigration to the coun
try as it is.

in the New York City club, he met Fred
Wanted a Change.
The two small boys who wanted to
fight Indians had gotten some distance
from home. The romance had dwin
dled, and a discouragement which
neither liked to confess had taken pos
session.
"Look here,"' said one of them at last,
"I've been play in' I'm Sierra Sam for
two days now, haven't 1?"
"Yes,"was the reply.
"Well, I'm kind o' tired o' that game.
I think I'll play I'm the prodigal son."—

A Personal Peculiarity.
The young man who prides himself on
being original was talking to Miss Cay

"Your mother seemed very much
amused at that little story I told her
last night," he said, self-approvingly.
"Yes," she replied. "Ever since I can
remember mother has laughed when
ever she heard that story."—Washing

shows that one leg is longer than the
other. How is such a phenomenon, ac
