Horseshoeing Parlors" is the sign over a blacksmith's shop in Traverse City. Mich. And culture, not face tiousness, caused the inscription. To be smothered in food wa. the odd fate that lefell two tine horses on a slock farm near Wells, Minn., the other day. In the bin over the stalls in which these horses were stabled were 1,400 bushels of oats. The bin broke and the horses were smothered tinder the oats. Df.nsis Scott, reputed to be 107 years old, died at his home near iShliddsvllle. Minn., recently. His ago was said to be well authenti cated. His hair had never turned gray, and until a few weeks ago he had always bad good health, and had daily worked about his farm. Less than a year ago he rode 10 miles on horseback to the city, transacted some business there, and then rode back again. He was born in County flare, Ireland. Leader of Deeaoerary. St. Louis Rt-pnhlle. Men who organize a party on the line of a great principle and lead it to success do not cease to be leaders when success is achieved. Kather should their leadership be confirmed and exalted. William It. Morrison, of Illinois, Uoger J. Mills, of Texas, and John it. Carlisle, of Kentucky, gave the democratic party the inspiration of a principle of action and a policy of coherence and aggression. There were other men, valiant in service and ripe in counsel, but around these thren raged the battle which was fought against toes without and foes within the part?. There was a host of Israel before th walls of llethlv hcm. but only three mighty men of valor who braved the l'nillistincs to bring buck the life-giving water from the well at the gate. And they are democrats. There is no taint f niugwumpcry in their moon. Alius, hi j etas, has reached Washington and declared that the extension of a law designed to force life tenure in public ollice and the creation of an ollici.il aristocracy is undemocratic and un-American. Now, as ever, he stands and speaks for democratic feeling and opinion. He was never closer to his party than when, in denouncing a law which means so much of danger to tree institutions, be declares that it Is subversive of the principles of a tree government, lie sees as clearly now as ever in the veara of his war- far against tariff plutocracy that the uanger is too great to almit of tern porizing. He demands the repeal of the law of farce and fraud. He raises the issue. It the republican partv meet it if it dares. The Republic haa had frequent oc casion to commend the patriotic and democratit attitude of Secretary Car lisle, who has stood atone in the ad ministration lo resistance to the arro gance of the Pharisees. With the cant and false pretense of mug wumpery raging around him. invad ing the departments with inqaisl torlal processes and aiming to strike uown the safeguards ol successful business administration, he has maintained his democracy and his Americanism Inviolate. He has challenged the Rooseveltt to a iudi cial interpretation of their powers untier the law which, in everv branch of government service outside the treasury, has been made to cover the most flagrant usurpationa and the most wretcheti oppressions in office. In the reign of lawlessness and tyranny which hat prevailed in the civil service under the swav of Rooseveltism it has been consoling to know that none of the men with a career of militant democracy have had part in the sacrifice. William R. Morrison, of Illinois, is the choice of Roger Q. Mills, of Texas, for the presidency of the United States, lie can certainlv stand anon that part of the Mill's platform which denounces usurpers aau usurpation anu declares against the creation of an official aristocracv. He can stand upon that as easily as be stands upon the tana platform, which ia their joint production. Morrison and Mills are one in their interpretation of democracy. Thev have had but one difference and thev settled that amicably. It would be hard to find wherein they differ from each other now. And it would be harder still to find wherein they differ from the honest and patriotic democracy of the United States. Loving- Too Late. Not igur ngo I met a young lady in poverty whom I bad previously known in wealth, and .tins was in substance the story he fold me: "Father died surldeuly in Washington, and the pro fessional skill through which lie bad coined money for us died with him. I am Bi.t weeping because we are poor. I am broken blurted becanse none of rs saw that lie van dying. Was it not piti ful that bo should think it best not to tell any of us that he was sick? And I, his petted dnnghfer, though I knew he was taking opium to soothe bis great pain, was xo uborbod br my lovers, my games and my dresses that I jnst hoped it would all come right. If I could only reniemlK-r that even once I had pitied hi suffering or felt anxions about bis life. I might bear his loss better!" The story is common enough. Many a father, year after year, goes iu and out of his homo carrying the burden and doing tho labor of life, while those whom be tenderly loves hold with but careless band.s all of honor and gold he wins by toil and pain. Then somo day his head and hand can work no more! Ami the hearts that have not learned the great lesson of unselfish love while love was their teacher mnst now. begin their sad duty when love has left them aloue forever. Amelia E. Barr in La dies Homo Journal. Caterpillars sod Eye Diseases. It will come as a surprise to many of our readers that caterpillars are respon sible for au uffectiou of the eyes which muy entail prolonged suffering and even result in serious damage to vision. That such is the case has been abundantly proved liy a number of instances on rec ord in which more or less intractable inflammation of the eyes has been found to be associated with the presence of hairs which, after removal, have been idiutilled as belonging to tho genns caterpillar. At a meeting of the Oph- thalmological society a case was related in which a lad was struck in the eye by a caterpillar thrown at bim by a playful schoolfellow. He picked up the insect to examino it, and the hand which seized it became red and developed papules and other indications of local irritation. A day or two later the eye became the seat of what proved to be a very troublesome inflammation, associ ated with the presence of rounded ele vations due to au accumulation of cells around the imbedded hairs, which were subsequently discovered and removed Medical Press. Doc at Drrr Challenge? I will try to reply to your question, "Does a deer challenge:" Iu the Lake SniKrior region it i.s not an uncommon thing tc hear a buck whistle, as we call it. He may be following the trail of au lher buck, or may be only disturbed by the hunter. Tiie Minnd is somewhat like 'M-:i.iug steam, but shrill and loud eiiiiii'li to be heard from a fourth to a half of a mile. I have known one, after being slightly wounded, to take cover in a dense swamp and repeatedly send fortli his angry challenge. Tlio round is, I think, produced by the throat and mouth and would require the head to lie elevated and month slightly omii. I am of the opinion that this is the only note of anger or warning that the white tail deer gives. Forest and Stream. Yoar lloy Won't Lire Mot-th.

Ten Cent Pieces Coined In San Francisco In 1894 Are Worth a Each. Whoever has a dime of 1804 coined by the Sau Francisco mint lias a coin for which $5 has already been offered, and when all the facts are known re garding its Hcarcity it is not unlikely that it will command a much higher premium. Inquiry at the mint elicited the in formation that during the fiscal year of 1894 only 24 dimes were coined at tho San Francisco mint. How this cnnio about was told by Chief Clerk Robert Barnett. "All undercurrent subsidiary coins viz, those containing other than the de sign now being used when received at tho snbtreasnry are not again allowed to go into circulation, but are rent to tho mint to be recoincd with the cur rent denigu. Id the conrao of tho year 18!4 we received a large sum in these coins, but having an ample stock of dimes on hand it was not intended to coin any of that denomination iu 1S94. However, when nearly all of this sub sidiary coin bullion bad been utilized, we found on our bauds a quantity that would coin to advantage only into dimes and into dimes it was coined, making jnst 24 of them. "My attention was first drawn to tho matter particularly by tho receipt of a letter from a collector somewhere east requesting a set of tho coins of 1894. In filling this order I found there were no dimes of that date on hand. Subse quently I received quite a number of similar letters and in each case was of course unable to furnish them. "Plenty of dimes were coined that year at Philadelphia and New Orleans mints, but there aro many collectors who accumulate, tho coinaga of each mint, as each has its distinguishing mark. Those coined here bear a letter S under the eagle. New Orleans uses the letter O and Carr-on City the letter C, while Philadelphia coins aro identified by tho a'iseiKf cf the letter. ' Wo receive each year about 50 re quests from coin collectors for coins, mostly for those of silver." Sua Fran cisco Bulletin. Lincoln's Good Itrccd!ug. Tho wriier remembers very well to have heard a very fastidions lady, a member of tho iSpeed household, "say that, though at that time Lincoln had none of the polish and gracefulness to bo expected from those acquainted with tin- nsaes of S'x-iely, ho was one of na ture's gentlemen because of his kindli ness of heart and innato refinement. And after saying this she recalled an in stance of real good manners on his part. At dinner there was a saddle of mutton. The servant after handing the roast passed a glass of jelly. Mr. Lincoln took tho glass and ate tho jelly from it. The servant got another glass and passed it around. Mr. Lincoln noticed that tho others at table merely took a spoonfuL Without embarrassment or apology he laughed quietly and remarked, "I seem to have taken more than my share," and then ho went on with his dinner. Most itersons, this lady thought, after committing such a solecism would have been covered with confusion and profuse in apologies. John Gilmer Speed in Ladies' Hume Journal.
