It is said that Secretary Gresham preferred the title of ''General" to any other which he bad earned. Hi military record was, indeed, a bril liant one, of which he was justly proud and which his countrymen are glad to recall. It is a rule at the Ixnivre in Paris that no picture uhall be hung on its walls until the artist shall hare been dead 10 years. The rule docs not apply ut the white house, and (Icn. Harrison hopes to see his picture on one of the walls of that historic struc ture when he begins his second term as president. McKinlcy is wicked enough to remark that if the lloosier statesman waits until then he will never sec the picture in the white house. Last week's edition of the L)ela ,van, (Wis.) Republican, contained a descriptive article of that thriving town, with illustrations of some of tliu most prominent business blocks and residences. Kditor Weeks has, or at least should have, the reputa tion of getting out ono of the bright est aud cleanest papers in all Hadg erdom, and the extra work involved in his latest stroke of enterprise no doubt is responsible for his inability to accept an invitation to attend the bankers1 convention in Ilock Island.

The spoils principle still bangs on with a persistency worthy of the missionary principle. It seems to be understood by all concerned that whenever a man or woman can eheat the state they are at liberty to do so. It is not stealing according to the ac cepted view of the matter, it would seem. A man who will act honora bly in all business relations with other men will draw rav from the state for services which be does not even pretend to perform, and will consider it honorable.

ProfwBOT Checkly Advances the Ides That It Is Injurious. "Bathing and the uso of soap," gays Professor Clieckly, "is 40 per cent mora injurious to. tho human race than any other form of stimulation to which peo ple are addicted. If I should baths a man in proportion as much as he drank, I'd kill him iu one-half the time. This is called the ago of hurry and feverish excitement; critics complain that people aro unwilling to take time for any thing. As a matter of fact, hours of precious time are worse than wasted daily in the bathroom. If men would preserve their health, there are three things they must do first, leave soap alone; second, get the skin loose from tho tissues of the body; third, get rid of tho idea that regularity in the matter of sleep and meals is necessary to physical well being. " "What are the objections to the nse of soap?" asked a reporter to whom the professor's original views were a reve lation. "There are vital objections," was the reply. "The 6kin, it is acknowledged, bears a most important relation to the body. Firbt, it acts as a protective agent, covering the sensitive tissues of the flesh. Sucoud, it acts as the agent of the mind, conveying all sensations of heat, cold, friction and the like. Third, it directly aids all tho other or gans of thn body, taking up the work of each in turn when for any reason tbey become unablo to perform their func tions. The skiu assists all the organs of secretion and excretion in the entire system, and for that reason great atten tion should bo paid to keeping it in a hoaltby condition. . Although realizing ys important f mictions, people, instead f protecting this wouderfal covering of theirs, try by every means in their power to destroy it. Soap does not cleanse the skin. When tho skin is dirty, it is unhealthy, and tho organs within tho body can never bo cleansed by all the soaps iu tho world. The only stains, blots, eta, on tho sarfuco of the skin that people need to get rid of cannot bo removed by soap. Homo other chem ical ointment or fluid has to bo resorted to to obliterate them. As far as regards tho dust and dirt which naturally ad here to tho hotly, dust and dirt, being earthly and material, aro much better brushed off than washed off, and eoap does not aid in tho process. "Philadel phia Press. ' MUTILATION OF DOGS. Ear and Tall Cropping and the Operation Known aa "Worming.' The fashionable mutilations to which tho dog has been subjected are threo ia number oar aud tail cropping, and the strange operation known as "worm ing." Though the law prohibits the performance of the operations which lead to these mutilations, yet at least two of thoia aro still carried out surrep titiously, and the third, "worming," may also be practiced. At any rate I havo seen it done in my young days. It and tho tail cropping can boast of a vcnerablo antiquity, and they also had their raison d'etro iu a superstitious be lief in their efficacy iu preventing mad ness or rabies. So long as the time of Columella, tho Roman writer on agri culture, tho mutilation of the dog's tail was a popular nud favorito procedure. As ho tells us iu his "Do Ha Rustica" that the shepherds bolieve that if, on the fortieth day after tho birth of a pup, the last bono of its tail were bitten off, the sinew (believed to be a worm) would follow the piece, after this the tail would not grow and the dog could not become rabid. This superstitions notion has prevailed for ages, and may still be entertained in certain quarters. Ilowever this may bo, tho fashion of removing a portion of tho tail of many breeds of dogs is quite common, and if it is done with a view to tho prevention of madness, it is at any rate considered most desirable for these animals to have a short, blunt tail, because it improves their appearance. Sonio dogs have scarcely any tail left. I have seen grooms and dog fanciers bite off puppies' tails as a matter of busi ness, and some of theso people have shown mo a fragment of sinew attached to tho amputated portion as the "worm in tho taiL" It should be noted, in speaking of this fashion, that a mongrel dog has been termed a "cur (Latin curtus, or crop tailed,) because it usually had the tail shortened, and according to ancient for est laws, a man who had no light to tho privileae of tho chase was 'oblieed to cut off tho tail of his dog, on iho plea that, if a dog has no tail to act as a rudder, bo cannot hunt game. Nine teenth Century. Swordsmanship Against Tiger. Sir James Outran, known as tho Bay ard of India, was a "mighty hunter" and an accomplished swordsman. He once performed the hazardous feat of killing a tiger with bis sword and from tho back of his horse. General Nichol son performed a similar feat. lie rode round and round the tiger at a gallop, gradually narrowing the circle, until at last he was near enough to de liver bis blow. Be had only the one blow, and if he had failed to kill the tiger bo himself w.ould have been slain. The explanation of the feat is that the tiger does not spring upon the horse man during the circling process, because he is watching his opportunity. As the circle draw closer and closer upon him, he becomes bewildered by the strange maneuver, so unlike that of any hunter he has ever encountered. Youth's Companion. Franklin's Tribute to Fas!
