miL. JU UTXII, Fabllao. BENTON. ... MISSOURI. People who write letters complain that the new postage (tamps don't tick much better than New Year reso ntiona. Jct.M Simon thinks the sorest recipe for attaining a hale old age is "intel lectual work." This will greatly com fort some of us. Piasos are now manufactured at the rate of three hundred a day. The rapid Increase in the population of the insane ayiuma is accounted for. Mrs. Jambs Brown Pottkh apparent ly does not altogether admire Mrs. Os car Wilde's style of dress, for she likens her to an animated lamp shade. Wb often hear people say of a man that he "talks like a book," but if any man talks like the conversation in some of our modern novels, he must be an ex traordinary creature, wonderfully made. The prune is a small innocuous berry tending' to reduce the boarding house convict to the belief that nature, while abhorring a vacuum, also abhors to have It filled with sweetened leather soaked In sugar water. Having essayed low comedy with some success and high tragedy with a narrow escape from the halter, M. B. Curtis is going to settle down to bust ness in Texas. lie will run a hotel and an opera house. Edward Dunbar, once a noted evan gelist, and author of the hymn "There's a Light in the Window for Thee, Brother," died recently in the Coffey' ville (Kan. ) jail, where he had applied tor lodgings as a tramp. Texas is about to engage extensively In the cultivation of tobacco. Experi ments extending over four years have shown that the soil and' climate are both admirably adapted to the growth ox the better qualities of the weed. Munhai.i. estimates that the land in the United States is worth (13,500,000, 000; the cattle, (5,500,000,000; the houses, (14,200,000,000; the furniture. etc., (7,300,000,000; the railroads, (10, 000,000,000; the shipping, (300.000,000, tne total wealth per inhabitant, (1,050. Prop. G. Stanley, in the Forum, pleads for a scientific study of children. lie would have it under these heads: Under 4 years, pyshchogenesis; under 13, paidology; up to full nuobility, eph ebics. The professor neglects to men tion spankophobics, shingleology, thrashlcs and thnmpology. Another secret society has been added to the long list of those organi zations already in existence. It is called the "Supreme Tribe of Ben Bur," after the famous religious novel written by Gen. Lew Wallace, which has created such a wide interest in the religious and literary world. The so ciety is a purely benevolent one. An eastern paper says: "A young man in Carmel, Me., took his girl for a sleighride. She fell out and he drove a mile before noticing it" Well, they don't sleighride that way out in this seek of the woods. The young men all drive with one hand, and sometimes the girl drives and leaves both arms of her escort loose to prevent accidents. The United States court at Jackson, Tcnn., found the notorious "Rev. Fred crick Howard" guilty on twenty-two counts of the indictment against him for violation of the United States postal laws. The crime was committed in connection with his bogus European claim agency, by which he defrauded American citizens out of many thou sands of dollars. "Jack, the Kisser," who has been in festing the streets of various cities, has just been sustained by the court of ap peals in Amsterdam, Holland, which held that "to kiss a strange lady in the street cannot be an offense, as it is the nature of a warm n.ark of sympathy." Those grave and serious Hollanders do reach funny conclusions when they un dertake to discuss light matters. "Didn't know it was loaded" has been an excuse for innumerable homi cides of the unintentional class and doubtless the cloak of many others that were deliberate murders if the truth were known. When it becomes the general practice of the courts of this country to class the "didn't-know-it-w as-loaded" idiot with felons of mur derous intent and punish him accord ingly, fewer lives will be sacrificed to that sort of humor. Among the novelties of the midwinter fair at San Francisco will be a miners' camp of '49 men, a wild animal and sea lion exhibit, a big' wheel like the Ferris wheel, a gold mine into which visitors can descend, and even a Pacific deep-diver and "shark-hunter," a Kanaka from Liliuokalani's re gion, who, with male and female companion, will make daily dives into a lake within the Hawaiian inclosure, and perform various Kanaka aquatie sports. But the exhibits of the wealth of the mines, the fields and orchards of the state will be the great exhibit. The Chinese have no governmental postal system, and letters are tran sported by means of so-called "letter shops." These are somewhat like our express business, as packages are also sent, and both letters and packages are insured and registered and charges are In proportion to the distance to be car ried. There are said to be nearly two hundred of these letter-shops in Shang hai alone, which send out employes to work np custom. Foreign letters are conveyed from China to other countries by the postal system of the latter, con sals being considered as postmasters for their own countries. The journeys of the emperor of Ger many coat him a great deal of money. , According to an article recently pub lished la a German paper, over 800,000 ' (narks, or S -60,000, were spent on the trip to Italy and stria undertaken ; noon after he ascended the throne.

OfcJevtloBt Dmloplif Against the Fro posad Sfq. re Representative 8 perry, of CmMetteat, Calls Atteatloa to tho la. utaltortaI roatarea of the Blllnd De clares It Woald "Put m Promlam ea LbM-a." WASHiitoToif, Jan. 91. The oppo nents of the Income tax have been stirred to renewed activity by the digest of the measure as given in re cent press dispatches. It was the first time they had seen the detailed method proposed for levying the tax. Representative S perry (dem.), of Con necticut who is one of the most active opponents of the bill, points out some of the main objections to the income tax plan as proposed. He says that the committee has in no way overcome the objection that AN INCOME TAX IS INQUISITORIAL. They do not pry into the incomes of citizens, but leave it for the citlzena having an income of over (3,500 to vol untarily make a report as to whether his income exceeds (4,000. Mr. Sperry says that this "voluntary" proposition gives no protection to the citizen. The government assessors will select snch citizens as have not made a voluntary statement and,will pry intctheir affairs. Mr. Sperry says also tbat the voluntary system "puts a premium on liabs." Mr. Sperry points ont that it will be absolutely impossible for business men to make a voluntary statement as to the amount of their incomes. He cites an actual case which has come to his attention, of a man who has nsed a large stock of raw wool to make woolen hose, without expecting to sell the goods and merely for the purpose of keeping; his men employed. The transaction resulted in a net loss of (30,000. Mr. Sperry shows that such a transaction CAN NOT BE ESTIMATED IN FIGURING ON INCOME. He also says that large commercial concerns will never be able to make an estimate of their incomes. They are in the habit of giving credit at from four to six months, and their book ac counts seldom or never show what their income is. If the book accounts are paid it represents income, other wise it represents loss, i A MANIFEST INJUSTICE. In the plan to have the disbursing officer of firms or corporations pay the tax on salaries of employes, Mr. Sperry says that the proposed law shows its manifest injustice. A salary is ascer tainable and is not like the uncertain profits of a business firm. And yet the employer is competed to do the book keeping and assume the burden of look ing after tbe taxes on all the salaries of his employes. EX-MINISTEK STEVENS Before the Senate Committee Investigat ing Hawaiian Affairs Tho Glut of a Let ter Mot Before Made Pobllo Attitude of the British Minister Toward the Queen and the Affairs of the Islands. EX-MINISTER STEVENS A WITNESS. Washington, Jan 31. The witness before the senate committee investi gating Hawaiian relations was ex Minister Stevens, who is charged with having coerced the Hawaiians and con tributed towards the establishment of the provisional government by the use of the United States forces. A SUPPRESSED LETTER. There has been much speculation since the president's message was sent to congress as to the contents of the message from Mr. Stevens to the state department that was withheld by the president on the ground of public policy. It is understood that this let ter was one of those confidential com munications from diplomatic agents to their respective governments touching upon the so-called Interests of other governments. MR. STEVENS EXPLAINS. Mr. Stevens gave the committee what he supposed to be the letter re ferred to, and it can be said in a gen eral way that it related to the attitude of the English minister in connection with affairs at the Hawaiian islands and his relations with the court of the deposed queen. It is understood that tbe English minister was, perhaps, as near to the queen as anyone on the islands, and was able thereby to EXERCISE GREAT INFLUENCE OVER HER. His son, Mr. Wodehouse, is the hus band of the half sister of Princess Kaiulanl, who is the heiress to the throne in the event the deposed queen should be restored. With this princess subsequently on the throne and the British subject related to the royal family and enjoying the power and in fluence that such relationship would give, it could be easily seen, Mr. Stevens aays, what the EFFECT WOULD BE UFON AMERICAN IN TERESTS, and how they would be subordinated to everything that was British. The British minister had lived on the is lands for years, his family had inter married to some extent, and naturally he would be opposed to any scheme that looked to the overthrow of the queen, and, worst of all, annexation to the United States. It was said by Mr. btevens tbat THE BRITISH MINISTER, MR. WODEHOUSE, was favorable to the deposition of the queen, and that he entertained an opinion of her that was in keeping with tbe opinions of other well-in formed and progressive citizens; but while he wanted her off the throne, he was equally as desirous that Kaiulanl Bhould succeed her.
