Their Wages are Advanced at Several Points," Is a significant headline in dispatches from Cleveland and other places in this morning's IJaion. Still the good work goes on. Poor McKinley! Jlstick triumphed over all the technicalities of law at Sing Sing. N. Y., yesterday, and Dr. K. W. IJuch anau, the wife murderer, and one of the coolest and most unfaltering vil lains that ever lived perished in the electric chair. He should have been dispatched months ago. The computation made by the Chicago Times shows that within the last 90 days not less than 250.000 men have had their wages advanced an average of 11 percent. A Penn sylvania corporation varies the mo notony a little bv increasing wages 15 per cent instead of the 10 per cent which has become so general. Spkinofikld Register: The Springfield Iron company's employes would nave to wait a long time lor a 10 per cent iucrcaso of wages under the McKinley robber tariff. The democratic tariff reform bill has not been in operation a year, yet the company has already posted a notice that, beginning Monday, July 1, the wages cf their employes win be in crcaxed 10 per cent. Good for the democratic tariff and the Springfield Ircn company. Actions ip.'ak louder ttiau wonts. New 1-aws In Force.

Making the pay of members of the legislature 11,00 J each for regular sessions and fo a day for special ses sions. Malignant Fairy, PhraJe'p'.u Record. A malignant fairy has been making the greatest confusion in tbe tneo ries of the protectionists and the free aiiveriies alike. Tbe protectionist cannot understand how prices of manufactured commodities shou'd rise and wages ot labor advance un der a wicked free trade tariff. To tho silverites tho advance in the prices of wheat, cotton and other ag ricultural products under a gold standard is ijuitc as great a mystery. The simple explanation is that the theories of the protectionists and of the silverites both are false and in capable ot standing the test of reason and experience. Truth is the great genius that has made sixes and sev ens of the predictions of the calamity howlers and of the cheap money humbugs ot the silver monger. The Value of CsIds. The value of gold coin is in its weight; the value ot silver coin is the government stamp on it. The value o. Mtnmons inver K-golator is the relief it gives from biliousness and sick headache.

The) Fort unite Kesnlt of a Tennessee Jna- tiee Mixing Hie Doeaneenta. Bill Wright was a jnstice of tho . i . . . peace, una aiso an nrneuinnnaea man, whose wife waa as able aa orator as Xantippe. Bill need to serve all bis processes himself and to save time would sign the marriage certificates in blank and deliv er a number to tho parson. One day Bill bad a process to serve away up in the mountains on a scmibar barous recluse, who was sued for dam ages for some disdeeds, and Bill thought he would deliver a few of the certifi cates to the parson. So, sticking both packages of papers m the same pocket, be mounted bis horso and rode off. Reaching tho minister's, lie stopped and chatted awhile, and, after deliver ing bis papers, be started off again and took the road to the mountains. Tho parson had a wedding that day. one of tho parties being a notorious horse thief from an adjoining connty. When the ceremony was over, tho parson se lected a certificate from the bundle and unrolled it sufficiently to sign his name. Oil handing it to the man tho latter opened it, and his eye grew wild as be read instead of a marriage certificate a warrant of arrest, signed by both the justice of the peace and by the parson. He feared some trup, so surrendered himself to custody. When the justice reached the moun tain side, he took out the paper to read it and immediately saw its nature, but, maintaining his self possession, he re cited the form of summons, which he fortunately remembered. He then returned and found the horse thief iu jail ami went and saw the par son, remarking, with bis own matri monial felicity in mind, that both pa pers hud unintentionally served the ends cf justice. University Courier. Why He Wanted It Printed. Compositors are supposed to be able to decipher all kinds of handwriting, even that of editors and ministers. On this point Mr. Robert Clark, the Edinburgh printer, used to tell a story: Professor Lindsay Alcxauder came into our ofiiccone Friday with the man uscript of a sermon. "You must let me have proofs of this tomorrow, he said. I told him the time was too short. Ha must give us a few days louger. "No," bo said. "1 must preach this sermon tomorrow, it is a special ser mon. I wrote it ten years ago, and now can't make out a word of it." Youth's Companion. Marvelooa Results. From a letter written by Rev. J.

Tho day after All Saints' is the "day of the dead the jonr des xnorts. Then Parisians visit the great ceme teries Pere Lachaise, Montmartre, Montparnasse, Passy, Yaugirard and Saint-Onen. It is a curious sight to see the crowds sweeping like a torrent along the boulevards of Bellcvue and Meuil montant between tbe two rows of booths piled np with emblems of grief and piety. Abont half the number are simple sightseers badaubs, who are attracted by any crowd, and who can bo readily recognized by their indifferent and gap- lug air and empty hands. The others, in mourning habits, carry in their hands wreaths of everlasting flowers, sprigs of boxwood and:ewtbou quets, measiiious under glass, witn a weeping willow and somo artless in scription a ma mere, a notre perc, etc. The cemeteries themselves present an unaccustomed spectacle.

In early times tho Dutch farmers of tho np river farms of New York had an iufcuioiis way of recovering pocknt knives that might have been dropped or mislaid while plowkig or gardening ras going on. Cntlery w;s not as cheap then and abnndant as in theso days ; so the fanners took tho thrifty precaution of keeping two or three sunflower seods in thoir knife handles. Then if tho knives fell npou broken gronnd and could not bo readily found, the owners would wait until tho seeds sprouted, and an isolated suilflowcr rtalk or blossom in field or patch would signalizo the possibility of missing article s being at its root. True, the owner did not alwavs realize the result of the scheme, because a pass ing boy who understood the token often 'got there" before tho planter. New xork Tribune.
