Judging from the returns reeeived up to the time of going to press, feel confident that Harrison has car ried New York, which makes his election certain. However, we pro pose not to crow too loudly until we are dead sure we are out of the woods, and then we'll woop-'er-up good. New York Democratic papers acknowledge the election of Harrison. Near the close of a journey horse walk, says a writer. If covered with sweat rub oft with a rag tojpre veut too suddei) cooling. Good Ad vice. The great ad. of "Donaldson's Glass Block Store," which appeared iu the Minneapolis Journal of Mon day last, is a little ahead of anything In the shape of a newspaper advertise ment that has ever com© under our notice. The printer who "set up that ad. Is an artist, sure. There must be a good deal of corro sive ii the ardent, which they sell in parts of Arizona. The Tombstone Prospector says: "The stomach of a whisky-drinker was on exhibiton at Fairbauk recently, and it did more for the cause of temperance than a hundred lectures by a weeping orator It resembled a boot leg which had put in about twenty years iu an alley." A syndicate of English capitalists lias bouifht out tlie interests of two big eastern brewers for the considera tion of $8,003,000, and proposes, "to introduce American beer into Eng land, with a view to competing with the heavy English ales" This is a syndicate that the Prairie Farmer does not feel like antagonising, and if it will only still further extend the good work by getting control of the liquor factories In America, and ex porting all their swill to the "tight little island," America will owe the syndicate a deep debt of gratitude The drink problem will have been solved, and a mlllenial era have dawned upon our country. A Paris letter on French agriculture says: The average yield of wheat per acre in France is 17 bushels—the bushel of wheat varies in weight from 60 to 62 pounds. The annual wheat crop in France in 305,000,000 bushels she requires for actual necessities 350, 000,000 bushels, of which 40,000,000 are ior seeding. This year her harvest has oniy returned 23-4,000,000 bushels, or 96 millions less than the total posi tively required. The best year France saw for wheat was 1874. The total yield was 400,000,000 bushels, or 70, 000 000 in excess of her total wants. The wish of lier agricultural experts is the production of 480,000,000 of bushels annually. After comfortably supplying French necessities,it would leave some 130,000,000 bushels to sup ply the permanent yearly want* of England. Whence came the sentence, "Let'er go, Gallager" The sentence is said to have orig inated as follows: Among the at tractions in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show is a coach said to be the famous Deadwood coach. The manager when he comes to the coach makes the following speech: "Ladies and gentlemen: You see before you the famous Deadwood coach, whioh has been baptized in fire and drenched in blood on the box you see the well known form of that great driver, Mr. Gallagher. The United States Mall Agent always came forth before the coach started and said (speaking to the driver and guards): 'You are entrusted with the lives and property of the United States and the mail of this great and glorious Union. If you are ready, let'er go, Gallagher." —Nashville American. The Chinese now begin to talk re taliation, A San Francisco dispatch gives the substance of a letter to the Chinese Times by a Pekin official, Written just after the news reached China of the passage by the United States of the Chinese-exclusion bill. After recommending the adoption of fetaliatory measures,such as prohibit ing Americans from entering China, 4he letter continues as follows: "This -will be by no means portionate to the harm done to Chinese interests is America, but It will have to be done in order to show that the Chinese can do something and if this will liave no effect in bringing the United States Congress and Government "tt reason and fairness, then it will be question for China to consider Whether it is not time for her to can cel her treaties with that country, to recall her subjects from there, to expel all United States citizens from this country, and to cease all rela tions and intercourse, diplomatic and Dommercial, with that country.

Well now John Bull,^ou can go on with your retali tion just all you darned please and the more you retaliate the better it will suit Uncle Sam. There'll not only be a solid south, but a solid north also in that case. There are a good many old soldiers in thia country, both north and south, who wouldn't want any better fun than to pounoeon Canada and annex that territory of John Bull's to Uncle Sam's farm some morning before breakfast. Presi dent Cleveland, please give the old lion's tail another twist. We like to hear the old fellow growl. It reminds us of the time when old "Hickory Jackson" "knocked the stuffing out of him" at New Orleans. Newspaper Ethics. Printer's Circular: A lawyer, when asked to plead a cause, demands his fee before he opens his persuasive mouth. You may hang and go to the naughty one before he will give you his legal service gratis. If one desires to know what investments are good and likely to be profitable the broker who advises him is quite sure to charge a commission for mak ing the purchase. Why, then, should an editor be expected to advocate all sorts of public projects pro bono pub lico? The contractors for improve ments make money out of them. Why should shey not pay the editors who present their arguments to the public? It is not considered deroga tory for the highest lawyer in the land to appear before the oity eoun* oil and advocate the granting of a franchise but the editor who charges money for doing the same thing is assailed with cries of a "subsidized press." We are not saying that the cry is unjust, but we do ask where the difference is between that which the lawyer is praised for doing and that for which the editor isdenounced. The man from whom the lawyer asks a fee proceeds to draw his check the man from whom the editor asks pay •elf same thing. Why is there one code for the bar and another for the presaf^-Prluters Circular. Alaska. Governor Swineford, in his report, states that the joast Hue of Alaska, 18,211 miles, is nearly twice the com bined Atlantic and Pacific coast lines of the United States. The market value of the Alaska fisheries for last year is estimated at $3,000,000. A thousand salmon, averaging ten pounds each, have been taken in Stika Bay in a single haul. The seal fisheries yield to the government $317,500 annually, or enough to pay 4 per cent on the amount paid Russia for the country. A single island is said to be practically a mountain of ore, and to contain mineral wealth enough to pay off the whole of our national debt. By a treaty of March 80, 1867, rati fied by the senate June 20th of the same year, ltussia ceded tT the Uni ted States what is now the Territory of Alaska. The prioe paid was $7, 200,000. William H. Steward was at that time secretary of state, and he was made the subject of a good deal ot ridicule by newspaper writers aud others for his purchase of "ice bergs and north pole possessions" but it turns out to have been a "a first rate bargain," after all. Fritz Buckentin, the Druggist, de sires to inform his patrons that he is agent for Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy, the best and most reliable rncdi cine in use for coughs,colds and croup. No oue suffering from a throat or lung trouble can use it without bene fit. It will cure a severe cold in less time than any other medicine or treatment. it is the only known remedy that will prevent croup. tf Pithly Put. Kind treatment is an equivalent of food. The greatest enemy of agriculture is ignorance. The mule is hardy and handy. If not handsome. If you have your boys profit by your mistakes, don't repeat them. Some farming is like an old jacket frayed at the edges and very thin elsewhere. Growing a boy on the farm is a mighty good foundation preparation of him tor an honorable business. There is this difference between the poor and the good farmer: One com plains of the bad seasons, the other rejoices iu the good seasons. Two horses of oue kind will do as much work as four horses of another kind, and it oug^t not to be hard to determine which is the more profit able. When a man comes half a mile to borrow a hoe or a fork, you may de pend on his coming some day to borrow money, but never coming to pay it back. The farmer candidate may not give you as much taffy as the city man before election, but he is more apt to consider your interests after he is elected. Perhaps it cant be remedied,but iti» nevertheless, a pity that the creature flattered by the nod of a politician oasts a vote that counts as much as the ballot cast by a true man. Eupepiy. This is what you ought to have, in fact, you must have it, to fully enjoy life. Thousands are searching for it daily and mourning because they find it not.

We presume it will be no newe to our Stevens County farmers when we tell them that it pays to raise good cattle and horses. They all know this to be true, yet many of them do not act on that principle. They still continue to raise serub cattle and scrub horses, when there is not one of them but must acknowledge that It pays far better to raise good stock, notwithstanding that the expense is more to get started in the direction of breeding blooded cattle and horses. If there is any farmer or stock raiser who doubts this, let him watch the market reports every week, and he will see that all through the entire year the best prices are not obtained for poor breeds, but for the best, and the cost of making the beef is not any more. There is probably two cents a pound'difference in the price between scrub beef cattle and well bred cattle. So that any one can see that It does not pay to raise inferior breeds of cattle. And what is true as regards cattle, is more strikingly true in relation to horses. It strikes us that the farmer who will raise a scrub horse at this age of the world is to say the least, very foolish. The price of horses could be advanced on an average of $50 per head, by stopping the breeding of scrubs and raise none but blooded horses. And then besides there is a great deal more satisfaction in driv ing a well bred horse than there is riding behind a scrub. The farmer who has his farm stocked with the biggest steers, the finest horsei. sheep and swine, certainly enjoys himself better than the farmer who raises scrubs and inferior breeds.. Mr. Campbell's Air Ship. New York Suu: In a small wood en building close by the sea at the foot of Tenth street, West Brighton Beach, hangs suspended the ear of the air ship with which the inventor, Peter C. Campbell, and the aeronaut, Carl Myers, will endeavor to prove that "science at last controls the air," The ship is now ready for the ascent, which will be made within two, or at most three, weeks, probably from the polo grounds. On the urrival of Myers it will betaken from Coney island to the place of ascent on a truck drawn by six horses aud accompanied by a ottea "black mail.1' Yet both (to the band. Mr. Myers will operate the machine in the ascent, with Mr. Campbell as his assistant. The ship complete consists of a balloon and car. The balloon isovld, 4- feat long and 24 feet wide in its greatest diameter. The balloon part will be 111 led with hydrogen gas, It has a capacity of 18,000 cubic feet. Attached to the balloon from beneath, by means of a long rod, is a boat shaped car, 30 feet long and 7 feet wide. Yesterday a reporter climbed into it as it hung suspended from the ceiling just as it will hang from the balloon, only a trifle steadier perhaps. Mounting a seat like that of a bicycle, he worked the machinery by means of a crank and treadles, which latter are precisely like those of a bicycle. The mechanical movement, too, is a bicycle movement, consisting of an iron chain belt and the ordinary mul tiplying gear wheels. Directly beneath the car is a large fan wheel eight teet iu diameter, and containing 16 blades made of cedar. By means of this the car is raised or lowered at will. Iu the stern of the ship is another wheel, also eight feet in diameter, placed at ri^ht angles with the other, and containing two blades of sail cloth. This acts as a propeller, and !t may be worked in connection with the fan wheel below the car or separately at the will otthe operator, there being levers to throw either set of machinery iu or out of gear. At the top of the car. tore and aft, are fastened to the balloon spleen —which name is given to the long rod that unites the balloon to the car— and to posts, smaller propeller wheels to guide the vessel in connection with the rudder, which, unlike rudders in general, is attached to the fore part of the ship. With the rudder in front, it is said, the ship's operator can steer in air more readily. On the sides of the car are two immovable wings, 17 feet long and 7 feet in heir greatest width. They are made of silk stretched upon rattan frames, and will serve to steady the huge vessel as it sail* through the air. The car is made of light spruce rails intertwined with rattan rods to lend them strength, and the entire weight of car and its contents is supported by a «teel band encircling the car and by four stout cable•wirt*. The machinery is a model of simplicity. The question is, "Will the ship go?" Mr. Campbell, who has been working on a'r ships for more than a quarter of a century, says it will. He regards this as the crowuing effort of his achievement, and flrmiy believes that, with good weather conditions, he can sail his ship aud steer too. Consumption Surely Cured.

Om of the Wonders of the World of Trade—The FMBOOI Bon Marche of Pari* Outdone—A Whole Congeries of Stores. Whitelev's establishment is one of the wonders of the world of trade. Compara tively few Americans visit it, as it is far away from what is known as the Ameri can beat—i. e., from the Langham hotel to the Metropole. Compared to the trade kingdom over which a single proprietor, William Whitele ielev, rooas rules, such mere overgrown dry foods stores as the Louvre ana the Bon Marche in Pariu are but simple affairs. White ley's is not a store, but a whole congeries of stores, each as accessible to but as dis tinct from the other as the dining room is from the parlor on a floor with folding doors. What in tho usual run of dry goods stores occupies a counter or at most but a room—such as tho silk depart ment, the linen department, the costume department, etc.—has at Whiteley's a large and imposing store to itself. The jewelry store is a superb establishment, the furniture house is magnificent china, glass, ironmongery, dressmaking, sewing machines, coiffures, toys, Japanese and Indian curios, each and all have stoves devoted exclusively to themselves, large openings giving communication through tho entire aeries of establishments. ADDITIONAL ESTABLISHMENTS. This would be wonderful enough, hut there are surprises at Whiteley's a pro vision store of extensive dimensions ad joins an excellent restaurant, the restau rant leads into the aviary, conservatory and live stock establishments. There Is a well supplied wood and coal offloe. Pi anos are upstairs in a store of their own near them is a large hall, decorated with fla^s, statuary, tattles and chairs in fusion. Here a dinner of several hum covers may be given, or ordered for any place, town or country, with every acces sory, from the banquet itself to the waiter who serves it all provided by Whiteley. I had nearly forgotten to name a charming picture gallery, where *nan original works of great beauty are difl played, and where orders are taken for copies of any masterpiece on the walls of any of the great galleries of Europe. Whiteley is also a banker. You may buy or sell money on his premises. You may take your passage by any steamer for any port. You may hire a servant bury a de ceased friend put your belongings up at auction purchase, sell, build or take down a house. In short, there is not a single transaction in life relating to trade which Whitelev is not willing to make for YOU. No wonaer he calls himself "the univer sal provider." Such a business as White ley's must speedily make a man a bank rupt or a millionaire! and as disaster has not overtaken him, it is presumed that Whiteley has a good account at his own and other banks. His establishment has suffered frequently from fires, whose strangely persistent recurrence irresist ibly suggests incendiarism. In the matter of cheapness I find very little difference between Whiteley's ana other establishments which are not es pecially devoted to wealthy customers, as are GLLlow's in the furniture line, and Lewis & Allenby in the dry goods. An honest price prevails, and if an American visitor sees anything he or she likes at Whiteley's, I would advise him or her to purchase it without further ado, as it would be a waste of time to run allover London to try to find the same article at a lower price. AT THE BON HABCCB. For one American who has heard of Whiteley's in London, ninety and nine have heard of the Bon Marche In Paris. Persons who know no other single word in French are aware that bon marche means "cheap." This famous store is in deed a marvelous place. Outside of a few little knickknackB known as articles de Paris, the vast establishment is en tirely devoted to the sale of dry goods. No wonder the American woman, with her national love for shopping, revels In hours spent in flitting from one counter to another. Gloves are to the right of her, flewers to the left of her, Bilks are in front of her, lace is beyond. Are these beautiful things really, or only in ap pearance, cheap? Why, the truth is they are sold at the market price. Examine well anything that is offered below the current rates, and you will discover a reason. I will caU the attention of American ladies to a custom which prevails at the larger shops in Paris, by which our coun trywomen are misled, though no deceit is willfully put upon them it arisesfsimply from a difference of custom between the French and American merchant. When a price is seen upon a remnant in America, the purchaser knows that the marked figure is the price of the whole remnant, while In France the marked figure means per yard or rather meter, according to the French measurement. Thus, if an Ameri can lady sees some attractive pieces of lace or silk, marked variously from $2 to 10, and decides to take some or many of hese remnants, it comes, as a very dis agreeable surprise, to find out that the articles were at so much per yard, and that the shopkeeper will now measure the yards. Often the price is but a few sous reduction per yard on the original figure asked, and the purchaser finds herself with awkward lengths of goods she was tempted to buy only in the Mrs. Toodles spirit. To be sure, at the Bon Marche the privilege is given of exchanging articles which a purchaser may be dis satisfied with—if no hann has come te them. Even money is, under certain cir cumstances, returned.—London Oar. Bos ton Transcript. Postal Savings Bank System. One of tho features of tho government of Great Britain is the postal sa i rings and is 1 bank system. It is very popular and largely patronized by the public. Its use fulness is beyond all question. United States Consul Walling, at Liverpool, has been investigating this subject and has given some very interesting facts about its workings in a report to the secretary of state. The beginning of the govern ment postal savings banks was in 1861 under a bill prepared and presented by Mr. Gladstone. It was entitled "an act affording additional facilities for deposit ing small savings at interest with the security of the government for the due repayment thereof." On tho day of the opening of the first banks under thia act 435 deposits were received. One year afterward the number had increased so greatly that there were 3,535 offices open for the accommodation of the public. In 1880 the depositors had increased in num. ber to 3,731,421, and the amount of money on deposit was £50.874,338. This in American money would be $250,000,000. Deposits of one shilling or any number of shillings are received up to $150 or £80. The interest paid is 2-J per cent, a year on every full pound. Should the sum on deposit reach £200 tho interest there on will cease until the amount has been reduced. The government has made pro vision for the investment of larger sums in its securities. The banks will receive deposits from parents or othor relatives on behalf of minor children. Bfarried women can also make deposits which are beyond the control of the^ husbands. Another feature of the British system is that the government guarantees the repayment of all moneys on deposit with interest, and also any life insurances or annuities granted under the act creating these banks. The results of the measure of Mr. Gladstone have been such as to recommend it to the good will of tho people of Great Britain. That they do appreciate it is shown by their liDcral patronage. The cost of maintaining it is very little, being about five-eighths of i per cent. Tho guaranteo of the govern ment makes the system absolutely safe. It is in every respect a well regulated financial institution. Great Britain is not the only nation which has these postal savings banks. They are a feature of the American and Australian British colonies. They have been engrafted upon tho political Bvstom of France, Ger many, Austria.

Bolton In Home JounaL Vhra Sunstroke Is Prenlnt We generally find that when sunstroke is prevalent the atmospheric conditions •re of a certain and definite character. These are found not only in an elevated temperature, but a great degree of hu idlty or moisture of the midity or moisture of i air. As long as we have dry air the degree of heat that we can endure without much discomfort is very considerable compared to that when the air is full of moisture. The ex planation of this is simply due to the fact that evaporation and loss of heat from the skin and lungs is markedly interfered with, the already moist air being unable to take up and relievo us of the usual amount of moisture. This, coupled with the increased heat, is placing us in a po sition where our internal production is very apt to be decidedly increased. The only way we have of compensating under these conditions is by lessening exertion, light or modified diet and light clothing.

Adnnc« of C!r(li*atlon, Don Alphonso, brother of Bon Carloe of Spain, traveling as "Don Juan de Huelva, Count de Bourbon/' is in Turke stan and is astonished at the progress made there along the Transcaspian rail way. At Merv, which five years ago was a crowd of felt tents and mud huts, he found brick houses and macadamized and paved streets, and at the railway station at Bokhara was a luxuriously fitted up buffet with a young and pretty Russian barmaid speaking French and German as fluently as her native language. Twenty years ago no Christian would have been •afeInBokhara.—New York :a The Skeena Indiana. The Skeera Indians are described as of low stature and degraded morals. They are all heathens and sturdily refuse to embrace Christianity. They are wild and lawless, with no more notion of fairness than a wolf, whose character they exactly parallel, Inasmuch as when they come to the store alone they are almost vexa tious^ meek and lowly, but when they collect in numbers they are loud mouthed and menacing. Their faces consist mainly of mouth and cheek bones, with flat noses.—Chicago Herald. Theory of Mind Beadiaft.

Brushing away a vast amount of fraud, these men of science do not hesitate to say that it is demonstra ble that mind can act directly on mind, apart from such organic communication as is furnished by the Watekinf the Heart. A novel case has been brought to the notice of the Paris Academy of Medicine. A man's breast bone was nearly all re moved, with parts of several ribs, in or der to stop the progress of bone disease.

Bats on Board Ship* -We eaa always tell." said ft West India captain, speaking of the plague of rats in port now, "when we have a few or many of the pests on board. Tho rats do not, as one would suppose, remain on the ship, but they get off at various ports, and, after remaining awhile, ship on some other vessel for another voyage, lie water rats, or wharf rats, are great trav elers, and make frequent voyages around the world. There are here now rats from almost every part of the globe. Why, I saw four colossal Jamaica rats, with their white bellies, skipping about in the moonlight the other night, and yesterday I killed two Indian male rats on my ves sel. "Eats are great climbers when they find it necessary to do so. Uponone-of my voyages not long ago we Iiad a long spell of warm weather, and there was no water in the hold which tho small army of rats on board could get at. One night we put some water up at the cross trees and waited for the result. Well, the rats just swarmed up the rattlings and went for that water. Wc killed as many of them as we could as they came down, and some of them jumped overboard and were drowned. But we could not kill them all, and a few made the entire voyage with us. "—Philadelphia.

The first and great reason is that women do not keep their heads clean. Oftener thev are too busy with house keeping ana children to give the hair the weekly shampooing and nightly brushing it needs. Still oftener they are too negli gent or do not know that on strict clean liness of the scalp depends their chances of having good nair at 85. Housework should be done with a muslin cap or towel folded to cover the hair to the roots. House dust, which is mainly dead animn.1 matter thrown off by clothing and beds, is deadly to lungs and hair. Housemaid's consumption is generally due to breathing the dust and flue of ill-kept chambers, and the layer which collects at the roots of the hair kills it aud causes the most of the falling out of which matrons com plain before 40. When women comprehend the baleful influence of dust on the health, and complexion, they will banish carpets, up holstering and unwashing draperies, at once and forever, as the great receptacles and absorbents of dust. When curtains and carpets or large mats are used the air constantly receives floating dust at each movement not much, it is true, in care fully kept houses, but quite enough as it gathers on the scalp, week after week, to form with its natural oil and sweat a thin malignant crust in which the root of the hair slowly decays and drops. As the most of women wash their heads not oftener than once in six weeks, the effect is best left indefinite. Scalp irritations are not unknown, causing months and years of trouble. But oftener the skin of the head, clogged and loaded with dead scales of matter, loses its function* and the hair drops out.—Shirley Dare. O now*. There are fashions In everything n days. The latest is in handwriting. At least, I see that an instructor in that art advertises at a stylish stationer's that he will impart to our aristocracy, and I pre sume any one else who can pay for in struction, tho latest styles of fashionable caligrapby. It used to be charged against the old fashioned writing master that his method of instruction deprived the pupil of all individuality in the use of the pen. The writing master taught writing after the fashion of a copperplate. The newer style insists on an equal suppression of individuality without the compensation of elegance. The thing in handwriting now is apparently to make it as illegible as possible. The extent to which the people succeed is certainly a credit to the master.—John Preston Beecher in Kew Ckon of Prematura Agt, "I have 500 gray hairs in my head and I'm only 86," said a friend to me, and coming down in a street car another friend took up the same theme and asked: "Why is it we get old so quick in this country?" I could not say, not being old. "Wo live in such a hurry," he said, answering his own question. "All we think of is getting money in this country. In the old country they think of spending it. I mean that we are reckless of how the money goes after we get it, and so we are extravagant and need more money and strive harder to get it, and get old young. I believe there are more lunatics in this state of New York with its five and a half millions than in all France with its thirty-seven millions. In France a man regulates his spending. He has so much income. He makes it go as far as it will, and lives in a regular and method ical fashion on that basis. He doesn't grieve for more because he can get com fort out of what he has. But here we are anxious to make that we neither rso id with economy nor get comfort out what we spend.
