Verily, the worm will turn, even the downtrodden, patient male worm found In street ears. lie turned the other day on the Madison avenue line, lie vas a sickly looking man, of middle ige, who entered and gazed about anx ously for a. seat.

Even a half way .’ivil shrinkage on her part would have made him happy, but her royal thoughts were full of Easier, and she never budged as he stood before her in the aisle. Her neighbor’s heart surrendered a few incites of space, and he used that opening wedge till the gaudy grabber, with the usual street car look of with ering V 'tempi, yielded enough more to mat> a.m easy—uu a pinen. Three or four blocks further on a stupendous recruit was added to the company. She carried a market basket and had the breadth of the Liberty statue. At once the sick-looking pas senger became aroused to the demands of chivalry, offered his scant, accommo dations to the buxom dame and retired t > the platform to watch results. % The space resigned was an awful mis fit, but that didn’t bother the fortunate winner. It was the furious heart of the gaudy creature that broke under the mass of determined plebeian flesh at her side. She .turned red, white anil blue, bit her lips at the spectacle of crushed wing*, and darted javelins of wrath toward the platform. Thenudi encc gasped and smiled. She signaled a stop. As she angrily flounced past her merciless foe that dear old word “brute” came hissing hot from her mouth.—N. Y. Herald. Great Power for nigh Speed. The large amount of fuel required for very high speed racing boats has been the subject of thorough investigation by experts, in order, if possible, to re duce the quantity of coal necessary for this purpose. Some of the British tor pedo boat clinsers are thought to be the most perfect vessels of their class in ex istence, but in order to attain a 30-knot Bpeed, they must carry 00 tons of coal. ; This is fully one-quarter of their entire sea-going displacement. Under high speed they consume between three and a half and four tonsof coal an hour. To propel a vessel with a speed of 20 knots- I an hour, the consumption of fuel is tre- I meodous. Twenty-seven knots an hour is the best speed of the ordinary torpedo boat. In order to reach the 30-knot line fully 80 per cent, more fuel Is required. —N. Y. Ledger. j A New Kind of Thread.

The oflicial count in Colorado gives Bryan and Sewall 132,4U0 plurality. Only one other ’state Texas—gave a larger plurality for the Democratic na tional ticket at the late election. * * * Ex-Governor Waite has sent a letter to the chairman of the Populist state committee of Kansas, expressing bitter opposition to woman suffrage. Air. Waite says that if the Kansas legisla ture submits a suffrage amendment to the people, as it is expected it will do, he will go to that state and fight it. He also says that if it is desired, he will lecture ugainst the measure while it is pending in the legislature, agreeing to r»—«»•• **l„«*,. „♦«. , Ak*4 suffrage has been most calamitous to Colorado. “Old Bridles” and the Popu list party claimed to be especial champ ions of the woman suffrage movement in this state, but when the women got the ballot they didn't vote the Populist ticket; hence these tears. » * It is likely that President Cleveland will extend the civil service rules to the fourth-class postmasters. This W’ould mean the retention in ottice tor an in definite period of our local postmaster, as that oflicial has conducted his office in a very satisfactory and efficient man ner. * • « Maintaining the troops at Leadvilie is a heavy burden for the taxpayers of the slate to bear, but “Molly Maguire ism,” which has been rampant in the Carbonate Camp since the present strike was inaugurated, must be suppressed regardless of cost. *** i Should Congressman Hitt, of Illinois, become McKinley's secretary of state 1 there would be little doubt of the Cubnu policy of the next administration, as he has just made a red hot public state- ‘ ment in favor of recognizing the belli- j gereucy of the Cubans. < * # * i The nail trust appears to have been , bit on the bead and driven into a hnia j But there are others still doing busi ness. • *** Speaker Reed isn’t explaining why he didn’t stop at Canton, but some of his friends are not acting as wisely. : • * * Having stirred up Russia and France Bismarck is now throwing stones at the British lion, whom he accuses of want ing to control the whole menagerie. * * * The Detroit girl who married the Prince of Curaman - Cliimav is now figuring in a French divorce Court for having deserted her royal husband to live with a gipsey tiddler. Poor thing! She will probably find that a change of music is not ulways beneficial. * * * Success in any line transforms the common, everyday crank into a genius; that is one reason we’re inclined to be considerate towards the cranks. An ether reason is the existence of a fellow feeling. • * * Those men who are hungering for Spanish blood should lose no time in joining the Cubans. That is the only opportunity they will have, and that may vanish before spring. * * * If it took Mark Hanna two years to get Governor McKinley his first presi dential nomination, can he get it for him the second time in four years? * • * With Hon. Theodore Roosevelt and Rev. Dr. Parkhurst openly commending fistic combats prize fighting will prob ably enjoy a great boom in New York City. * * • Of course there will be an extra ses sion of congress, and of course there will be a protection tariff bill passed, if it is not bung up in the senate. Every one knew that these things would fel low the election of McKinley and a Republican congress before they voted. Let the will of the majority be carried out.

Oil the north side of this gorge, about half way up the rock side of the cliff, is a fi'-ure in tlu* rock presenting nn opening perhaps 20 foot long and .vary ing in width from two to five fee.. Though there is no accurate way of knowing the depth of this fissure or cave in the roelc side, it lias been es timated at, anywhere from ; to 51 tcet, jierhaps oven more, and pcrsiblv with the dimensions of a large cham ber. In this rift in the rock a swarm o r bees years ago made their home, and there they have continued to abide multiply find store up honey until three 3 car:- ago, when tin* last report of tliem. os given by a lost hunt -r. stated that so numerous hod tlicy become Mia* there was one perfect column or st ring of bees fully a foot thick continually going and coming from t.hc stone hive. Parties wlu> claim to have scon it aver that on a warm day tihe sweet stVrV r inlc^iAtcPitR o rays penetrate the opening, would trickle down the side of the cliffs and fall in pools at the bottom. Several parties attempted to dis- Vodgc the bees and get at the hive of honey, but owing to the difficulty in getting at the opening they were never sneorr ful, as the beee-j always drove ■ h«*.m away. A few days ago a stranger, who claimed to hail from the eastern part of :lie state, and who hod been trudging Ihese mountains in quest of Iheoutlao •: f or game on several of the game pre serves located here, stopped ;» few min utes at. the gap, and while here told of seeing the beehive in Uu* rocks.

Their toclal Life Dlxcntiml by the Noted _ Cirrcjpondeut to Yale Studeutx. George \V. Smalley, the noted foreign correspondent, recently sjxjkc under the auspices of the Phi Beta Kappa so ciety at Yale on the subject, “Social Life in England.” The lecture was de liverel at New Haven for the first time, and vas very instructive of the charac teristics of society life in England. Mr. Smnltey was introduced by Prof. Ed ward J. Phelps, of Yale, ex-minister to England. Mr. Smalley admitted in hi 4 prefa ory remarks that 1 here was much paltry and ignoble in London society, but le confined his description to the bright, side of English social life. Mr. Smal.cy declared that not wealth, fame, honor,* nor even rank alone, gave po sition in English society, and stated that many of the titled personages of the realm were outside the gates of what is known as society. He said that position in society in England was ob tained and held only by a combination of leading traits of mind and character. Mr. Smalley interspersed his talk with a vast number of pertinent anecdotes illustrating the different phases of Lon don society life. He spoke of the mani fest regard for the company of others by the members of London society, and declared that Mr. Gladstone was the who had ever been able to ignore this rule without paying th© penalty. He enumerated many of Gladstone’s char acteristics, showing him to be arbitrary at all times in society. In concluding. Mr. Smalley called the English “tin* greatest of actual races,” and said that we had much to learn from them, they from us and the world from both. —Troy (N. Y.) Times. Favored Luclndy .lane.

He came up to the platform at the close of the lecture and said, heartily, while lie grasped her hand until she winced with pain: “Yer the livin’ iminidge o’ Lucindv Jane, rny first wife, nn’, what's more, you talk perzactly like her." “Indeed?” “Yes, you do.
