Let's see, what will they call that
Tela fusion popocan?
With the advent of a hotel com
bine, which is the latest thine the
way of trusts, it Is difficult to see
wherein the commercial traveler is
to get along.
The Philadelphia Item dips its
pen in vitriol and remarks that
'bankers an4 corporation lawyers
lie awake worrying over the woes
of the laboring man."
The most striking difference be.
tween Vermont with it 39,000 re.
publican majority and Arkansas with
its i!,U0 democrat lo majority, is
that the former has four electoral
votes and the latter eight.
Tnr.itr. seem to be no longer rea.
amiable doubt as to the withdrawal
of (Jen. J. C. lilac k from the Held of
candidates in Illinois this year as the
democratio gold nominee for gov.
ernor. The committee will in such
event i Iioote between W. S. Fore,
man. Henry Haab and Judge Thomas
The New York Herald, the intol
erant gold bug organ, says that
Mryan, the democratio candidate for
pretl'Ivnt. it a pauper. That is a
fair ianiple of republican "argu
ment" in this campaign. Bryan
may be poor in puree, but he is rich
in many things that his detractor
are not, among which are brains,
pntriotiitm. honor and love of follow
men. And there ate enough of the
ime kind of -paupers" in this
American republic whu will vote for
and elect Bryan president of the
United States, even at the risk of
offending the gold plutocrats of the
cast and dear old Lunnon "
tot- H. F. M a R.n, the erstwhile
congressman from the congressional
district including Kock Island has
had a time of it reconciling his wed
known attitude on the silver uet
tion and his position now in support
t the gold declarations of the re
ublico platform. He is like unto
Congressman I'rince in this respect,
lol. Marsh spoke at Versaillea the
other day, and the correspondent of
the Mount Merling Examiner at Ver
sailles thus reports the occasion:
The colonel appeared to be loaded
to the ruujt.le but not with
trai'hts and tixxes but with pa.
trioti-m and enthusiasm, and re.
moved his coat at an early stage of
the gitme. According to this cor.
respondent the colonel gave birth to
this pearl of speech: -We stand
where we stand because we stand
where we stand, and we do not know
where we shall stand." -At the
cloe of that sentence." says the
sarao authority, -so e eartv setting
forth a plan to be followed to end
the money panic, restore confidence
and insure the prosperity and happi
nrss of all." adds the correspondent,
-a mighty shout rent the air; bats!
fans and umbrellas were thrown
hl-h in tha ether blue, ami ,..
the old republicans on the stage
sprang to their feet, hugged each
other and swore that they would
vote for a c ild standard, protection
ami Col. Marsh as long as tbey have
a ouimn on inur anirt."
Meet Maa far I .
Herr Most is a pronounced advc
rate of the gold standard. He ad.
tuits that he is an anarchist. There
fore It would appear o the returns
that the anarchists were for gold
and not for silver. Herr Mos, how
ever, dors not belitve that anything
ran be settled at the polls. He calls
an election -a monkey theatre." In
b recent letter on tbe money que,
tion the red-headed anarchist said:
I have expressed the opinion that
at present gold can only be used as a
proper standard of value, because its
t'osta or proauciioo are stable and
alike all ever the world, whereat ail-
ver Is getting cheaper every year.
If, therefore, the latter might be
used for money, notwithstanding the
facta stated above, it should be done
according to its market price, not 16
to 1, but (at tbia moment) 30 to 1,
though that would render silver
money rather inconvenient. Silver
men had better invent some new
articles of luxury, make them fash,
lonable and flood all market. That
would be the proper way to get rid
of all the superfluity of silver and
make it nsefnl.
-I am, otherwise, no politician
bat an anarchist, and consequently
do not care for any party in the
arena of voting fights, which I re.
gard as a monkey theatre, good for
the amusement of big children. I
believe in revolution, and not in
A Peculiar Coach.
At a rsw-ut meeting of one of the
trvticu x:ii ti s a paper was read on
what was diagnowil an a tousilar cough.
This conis'li is described as violent, soas-
nuKlic mid painful. It was frcqueiitly
accompanied by reflexes in the neighbor
ing rcRion, and particularly bv a nro-
f am watering -f the eves. All remedies
ordinarily applied produced no effect
whatever, and as there was no expecto
tuf ion the origin of the rough has seem
ed olwure. The tronble, however, in ex
plained by familiarity with the struc
ture of tlie tonsils, iicveral nets of nerves
renter and blend at and near the outer
surface of the tonsils, where they fotm
what is doseribed under the name of
touytlcr plexus. The tonhi Is are connect
cd by muscles with the apparatus of the
larynx, a fact which makes treatment
of the tonsils complicated and difficult.
It is a common practice to cut off the
tonsil., but this lias lieen attended with
very grave results. The hearing is some
times affected by this arrangement and
the larynx is necessarily involved. The
U-st surgeons are at present very careful
mow they xTfonu any surgical oticra
tion on the throat or tongue, as it is a
fact past question that very few such
operations are Fiurc fsIhI in the long run.

AN ARCTIC STUDIO.
A little Wooden Shed Rollt Far Wlthla
the Arctic Circle.
At the head cf an almost unknown
bay, beyond tho waters of Inglcfield
gulf, the Falcon fonnd temporary rest;
and there, under a lofty peak and in the
presence of a mighty glacier, wo erected
out two tiny buildings. The site was
chosen upon a terntco in the bed of an
ancient glacier and near a rapid brook
that ran down to tho bay. Tho studio
formed a wing of tiie larger building,
and was built of three inch grooved
pine. It was made with double wails,
and hail an air Fjiace cf one foot com
pletely enveloping tops, Kides and bot
tom, and an additional air space of one
inch formed by felt covering the walls
ami ct'ilius. On the side facing tho west
were placed double doors, and on the
south a double skylight and a window.
Over three of the exterior walls was
fastened the conventional tar paper. In
this small abode, the northernmost stu
dio in the world, with a ground space
of 15 by C'.j feet, and with a height of
less than 8, my comrade and I were to
dwell for more than a year.
On Aug. 26, 189;!, the studio was
made habitable with two folding beds,
trunks and boxes for seats and recepta
cles, ami oilcloth for floor covering. A
long shelf was run along the west sido
of the room, uear the ceiling, and under
the skylight was placed a scries of
shelves. A clock with a homelike voice
gave an air of habitableuess to the
room, and from the ceiling was sus
pended a lamp with a chain for raising
and lowering it always an object of

torpedo catcher and all tho rest are to
disappear utterly from tho face of
French waters. The key words of the
new scheme are homogeneity and au
tonomy. The fleet is to be homogeneous
through all its units, the units to be
self sufficing for all the various func
tions of war. The archetype of this au
tonomous unit is tho Dupuy de Lonio.
This vessel, generally classed as an ar
mored cruiser, was launched iu 1890,
but was not completed until some years
later. She is of 6,300 tons displacement,
374 feet long, of ol feet 0 inches beam
and 23 feet ti inches draft. iSbe steams
17.5 knots au hour with natural and 20
with forced draft and is reckoned able
to make 4,000 miles at 12.5 knots with
out coaling. She is armored and tnis
is her most distinctive feature with
4.7 inches of steel throughout her whole
length and almost over the whole sur
face of the hulk
For heavy armament she carries two
7.6 inch breechloaders and six C.3 inch
canet quick firing guns, besides numer
ous smaller quick firers. Tho heavy
gnus are so mounted that sho can fire
fivo of them ahead, astern or on either
broadside. This formidable type Admiral
Fonrnier proposes to strengthen and
develop into the unit of his homogene
